i Ul Hint StW.Tiiieeu
"Weldon Park, Eloisel" snid Mr.
Luttrell, as the carriage In which he
nnd his daughter had been driven from
Fontenoy entered a broad nveiine lending to a stately mansion. Elnise looked
with languid'interest at the house, the
broad sweep of lawn, the grand trees,
representing the estate of Fruuk Weldon.
"Yes, papa." she snid quietly. "I remember the place quite well, although
I wns only about twelve years old when
we were here last, I suppose the ludy on
the porch is Mrs. Weldon."
"Yes���yes���and Frank Is thero too.
Dear me, Eloise. I wish you would not
look as if yon were half asleep."
Thus admodished, Eloise sat more
erect, and put some animation into her
greeting as the carriage stopped ut the
foot of die (light of broad steps leailin-j*
to the porch, whore Mrs. AVebloii nnd
her son waited to welcome their guests.
It hnd been understood in the families
of Weldon and Luttrell fur yptirs that
Frank and Elnise would one day unite
the fortunes and estates hy a marriage.
The young people did not consider tuuui-
selves to lie formally betrothed, but
wheu old Mr. Weldon died uud left his
chum and lifelong friend Mr. Luttrell
as one of the trustees fur the pruperty
his son would inherit when he came of
age. he certainly expected Eloise would
reign at Weldon Park when Mrs. Weldon, Frank's uiulher, diet); uud when
Mrs. Luttrell died iu Paris, she urged
her hat-hand's return to Ainericu with
the conviction thut it wonld be better
now fur iriluisu to marry Frank, sincesbo
had devoted much of her life to her
mother's t-tnto of invalidism.
It was eight years since the Luttrells
had left America tn travel fur 11111 lamo
fit of Mrs. Luttrells health, when she
died. In that time Elnise hnd lice'i nnder the care of a Gorman guveruess iu
Germany, a French governess in Paris
and au Englisii governess iu Loiiuou
and in Italy. She had studied music
under the best masters, Inni tiuubluu iu
art, hnd gone iuto socie'y at fifteen to
"keep pupu company" wiicii her mother
was 111. Early developed, she had never
yet had any love affair, mid when Frank
Weldon was sent abroad to finish his
education, and joined the Luu rolls,
Elnise gave him a cool hut fleiitlly reception, quite prepared to marry him on
the foreign platform, to "please : upa."
They were tugether in many foreign
cities, but their love-ninking was of the
must languid description, each giving
the other cordial liking and thinking ardent feeling quite superfluous under the
circumstances. They parted in Paris,
and Frank hud lieen ut home nearly two
yeurs when he welcomed the Luttrells
to America and to Weldon Park.
"You must make usaloiig visit before
yon go home," Mrs. Weldon hud written
to Eloise, "it is so long since four hunse
wns opened that it will not be hiiintabie
for uinntliH.and yon will be so near that
yo.i can easily superintend all the cleaning or refurnishing."
"So, after a few days' rest in New
York the Luttrells telegrnpheu to Weldon Park and were met at the station
by the carriage.
It must be confessed thnt Mrs. Weldon
was not pleasantly impressed by tho
entire coolness of her daughter-in-law-
elect. She was a warm-hearted impulsive little woman, who idolized her only
son, and she made little allowance fnr
the early maturity iuto which Eloise
hail lieen forced. It chilleu her to see
how calm and self-posRissed this girl of
twenty wus, aud even tho statuesque
character of her superb beauty ruiher
appalled her. She gave Frank a half-
frightened look us the guests swept up the
staircase to the rooms prepared for tbem,
and Frank, as soon as they were out of
hearing, broke into a boyish laughter.
Nearly five years older thiin Eluise he
looked younger, being blonde and boyish,
while she was brunette and stately. I
think iu her hea-t of heaiti Eioise rather despised his merry, light hearted nature, but she never expressed auy such
opinions.
When the guests joined mother nnd
son in the drawing-room before dinner
they were both surprised to meet a gentleman who wns introduced by Mrs.
Weldon, as "my brother, Doctor (Jer-
rish." and to find this member of the
family a cripple and invalid. He wis a
tall, slight-built man, of thirty-seven or
eight, with a delicate, relinud face, aud
with one shoulder deformed while there
was a decided halt in his gait. Shrinking evidently from notice, he yet made
an effort to aid iu entertaining hu sister's guests, and conversed in a low
sweet voice, almost womanly in its
delicate undulations.
It was not uutil the next day that
Frank, sauntering through the garden
with Elnise, spoke of his uncle.
"No," he snid, in answer to ber question, "he did not live here before yoo
went abroad. He was practicing medicine then in Boston.but he was Injured by
a fall, and he lost his property in some unfortunate investments; so moiuer insisted upon his coming here, to take
care of her while I was in Europe. Since
then, it has been easy to persuade him
to stay. He enjoys the seciueiun, and
he is a close student, contributing large
ly to medical literntnre, though he has
ceased to practice. He cannot trust his
nerves since his accident, aud a doctor
uare not be nervous."
" Does ho suffer much V
" Not physically, but I think he does
mentally. He wns ambitious and au
enthusiast in his profession. It was
nurd to be cut short in what promised
(0 be an unusually snccesstul career."
"Very hard." said Eloise, with a great
sigh. It is as bud as being a wouiau
wiih no great object to live fnr "
Frame lutueti eiigutiy bewildered, but
made uo reply. Eioise had never confided to him the luugiugs of her heart to
be a great artist or a great singer, nor
the weary disgust to her that it was to
know she must be only a fashiouable
yuung Imly, with plenty of money of
her own aud a fortune of her futuer s in
prospect.
"1 cannot even be Lady Bountiful,"
thought this disgusted young lady, "for
J here are no  very  poor  people about
ere taut I know of,   and papa wuuld
not let me go near them if there were."
Lit  Frank's  accuuut   of  his uncle  '
roused her interest, and  she lunged to
It t bim know how keenly she sympathized with him.
Ii >vas uot eajy to brenk through his
reserve, bnt certainly no -better opportunities could be found than those
afforded by a summer sojourn in thu
same country-house; and scarcely knowing h"W the intimacv commenced.
Doctor Gerrish and Eloise became
friends.
Eloise wonld have indignantly denied
the possibility of her flattering any one,
and yet tliere was the most delicate flattery in her respectful deference to
Doctor Gerrish s opinions, her habit of
turning to him for sympathy in her
opinions, her evident pleasure in his society. She sang hit favorite songs and
wore his favorite colors; and when he
would talk to her of his pursuits, his
book in progress, she felt a strange sense
nf elation at being thought worthy of
his confidence.
Alterations were being made at Luttrell Place, where Mr. Luttrell talked of
establishing himself for the future, but
they were not urged forward very rapidly. The house and grounds benim-ed to
Eloise, bomg a portion of her mother's
properly bequeathed to her; and Mr.
I Luttrell ntteii spoke of going nbmnd
again, as if the settling duwu at Luttrell Place was not entirely decidud
upon.
"It is as well to have the place in order," he told Elo se. "Yon and Frank
may object to living here, yon know,
though Mrs. Weldou would be a model
luuiiier-iu law."
And Eloise hail answered only by a
burning blush and drooping eyes.
Mure than once she hail met any reference to that tacit engagement in the.
same way, but Mr. Luttrell had asaou.
no questions.
In the fall they went to their n-mi
home, ami Frank becuine a daiiy
visitor, while there was seldom a
week passed when Eloise did in it
drive over in her pony-carriage to cull
ou Mis. Weldon. She was unlike the
calm, self-possessed woman who
hud returned from Europe, iu those
dnys. She was restless and pre occup-
e I, neglecting her usual pursuits, ami
often shutting herself np in her room
for hours t "getber. coming out with red
eyes nud pale cheeks, but never speaking of illness or sorrow.
Christinas cume, and there wns a ball
nt Weluofi Park, which would bu followed, it was understood, by a similar
entertainment ut Luttrell Place uu iS����*
Year's Eve. It was l-ecweeu these two.
festivities thnt Mrs. Weiuuu cume, uue
day, to vis.t Eloise.
'iiiedear little woman was terribly
troubled und took her grief to headi-unr-
ters. yuite by accident, she haa discovered that her crippled brother hud
given his heart to the lienntifui girl who
hud so gently won his confidence, and
the hopelessness of his attiicuiiieiii was
appalling to his warm hearua sister. It
wus the strangest thing to ask, but she
did asx Eloise to stay away from A> tu-
dun Purk uutil alter her marriage.
"Then my brother and I will go abroad
nnlil he is aimself again." she said, "ami
I know you will keep bis secret. ��ou
will never let him know I betrayed hut
confidence, Eloisel" she pleaded.
"I will never let him know."
"He (eels tho fact of bis poverty and
his deformity So keenly," said Mrs. Weldou, "thut he wonld never dream of
speukiug of his love; but he has a true,
noule heart, and it will not be easy for
him tu cunqner the uassion be ieeis.
Pour Si ephen I Ho has bad a hard life. "
Eluise echoed the sigh, but made no
comment, and Mrs. AVelduu departed,
only hull satisfied with herself. Sho
might have lieen less so bad she heard
a question Eloise asked Frank ��� lew
hours luter. Tbey were discussing tuo
ball in prospect, when Eloise suid:
"Frank, don't vou think this fare* nf
onr engagement nnd better end! Yon
wilt never care half as much fur me as
you do for that pretty May Hilton."
And Frank blushiugly assented.
The night of the ball was clear,
brilliant moonlight,' and Doctor Gerrish. wbo seldom left home, astonished
her sister by appearing In full dress just
before the carriage star led.
" I urn going with you," he said, bnt
did nut explain that there had reached
him a little not from Eloise. ���
" I have a New Yeer'e gift for yon, and bej�� *
rou will coiue for It on Wetliieedar evening.-"";
She had never seemed to him so winning us on that evening when, in on* of
her exquisite Parisian toilets, she received her friends. Stately as ever,
there was yet a soft light in ber eyes ho
4
e had never seen there before, and her
voice was low and musical as she gave
him cordial greeting.
Just before midnight she took hia arm
rind led bim to tbe conservatory to on a
his opinion on some new arrangement
there. They were standing qniie aloue
among the flowers when the church
clock struck 12. Silently they counted
the strokes, and us the lost one died
ownv. Dr, Gerrish took Eloise's hand in
his own, saying, in a luw, tender  tone:
"May 1 wish you a happy New
Year /
Mie was very pale us sho looked into
Ills luce und a iswered :
."You mono cau make it'so, Tb'tl-
the'lirst hour of lMli-j���lenp year���anu

jSobody emu was very much nston-

Prof. Ferguaon came in from Golden

over Monday to entertain the boys
with his abilities.
The new seats arrived for the school
room, in bulk, one day last week and
after several futile efforts to get on to
the combination of construction, rue-
cess was eventually obtained by sheer
perseverance after which the boys set
to work during their leisure to fix
them up into articles of utility,
A good crop of hay has been cut off

The moral tone of this locality is
something above the averaga. I overheard a group of onr prominent citizens raise a serious objection to having the pny car perform its joyful
mitsion on a Sunday. They however
condescended to pocket their feelings
"just for this once" and marched up
as one man and received the dust
���'under protest."
Mr. Turnbull, C.E., was a visitor
over Sunday and proceeded west on
Monday morning.
That man is the most peculiar ot

fact that the much discounted culinary

the domain of our much esteemed local.
I might modernize thus : "Man wants

common, everyday, hard, bare facts,
we may point in conclusive evidence
to the ruffled atmosphere that but a
few dart ago pervaded the domicile of
our lair rhymer and to the uncontrovertible proof that serenity has only
been secured solely thro' the discriminating palate of her much belated lesser
half. Our vers-atile friend seems to
comprehend this fact in no small degree and with* frankness and good

ot last week's sentiment, to possess an

The football game last Saturday
afternoon came off as predicted, Tbe
town team was beaten, two to one.
Tbe reason given for this is that bull
ibe team are green at the game. The
shop team put up a good game all of
their men being veteran players.
R. A. Kimpton came home last Sunday from up the river a pretty sick
man and has bean confined to his bed
ever since with an attack of gastrie
fever. Dr. Syinons who is attending
him says that Ruins is on the mend.
George Deny, car repairer in the
shops here, had his nnkle broken last
Saturday by tlie falling of a cur
wheel on it. He wns taken to the C.
I'.R. hospital.
On Tuesday Mr. Palmer, working in
tho shop, had his scalp cut by the
accidental falling of an engine buffer
lieum falling on a piece of steel, which
Hew up and cut the scalp.
Mr. J. C. Pitts has taken charge of
Mr. Kiinptou's store again and is
building a residence for himself.
Mr. Chas. Holioway, tho efficient
clerk of tho C.P.R. store, is going to
leave us for Kamloops. Mr, Holioway
since his coming here has lieen quite
iu demand at social gatherings, both
public and private, as a violin player,
and has always responded most gladly.
Mr. Holioway is quite an accomplished
violin plnyer and there hns been nobody here who ever furnished music
like he has done, nor is there likely lo
he another for a long time to come.
Everybody wishes Charlie good speed
and all the luck possible, although
sorry to loose hiin. Mr. Holioway is
treating evervbody to a dance Thursday night, a general invitation having
been extended by him and a jovial
good time and good music promised.
Simon Frazcr, Win. Thompson, Ed.
Freemantle, and J. McLeod went ont
on a fishing expedition last Friday
night. They were well provided with
bait in both forms���liquid and substantial. After riding five miles thoy

camp ou account of darkness, the river
Iieing rather troublesome nnd turbulent
