HIS'has been a festival week at St.
Mary's Mission. Over twoahnndred
Indians have gathered together at
Upet point, and pitched their tents on the
lands adjacent to spend the week. They
are just returning from the hop fields, and
they will put in their winter supplies before
they leave for their different localities.
They generally gather once a year at the
Mission headquarters and spend a few days
looking over the grounds, and attend religious services. About one hundred of them
were engaged last Wednesday and Thursday
working on the road that leads up to the
new churoh, ereoted through the diligence
of Father Cornellia for their benefit iu particular.
One hundred persons will do a great deal
of work in a day, and with the guidance of
Father Cornellia it it safe to say that they
have done remarkably well Bishop Durleu
of New Westminster, attended the gathering end was tendered quite a reception by
the Indians. Well they may, for he has
bent Mod aud fatherly to them for years,
and is still continuing tc carry on the good

We notice in tho communication from
Cedar Valley, a criticism ou the much talk
of and no work on roads in the Stave river
valley.   We feel like making a fc« remarks
on (he above subject.   We are aware that
Cedar Val|ay folks do not know mud perhaps can not understand the difficulties
with which we have to contend.    They
work, in harmony and dings move as a natural consequence.   We agree to disagree,
one won't and the other dare not oa account
of the antebellum state of the atmosphere;
Wedonotrknow'of any law whereby ■*»'
can force our claims, only the law of harmony, and if there were any other it would
be too expensive.   While we" are ti'ying to
arbitrate the matter' you are niaking-rnads.
We do not care to go to any expense to
force things when we are so hall up.   It is
astonishing how a man can block' the wheels
of progress of any enterprise   lid at the
same time think lie is doing a lit tioous.net.

TSilverdale Poatnmo*, October i, 1803/
A life without a purpose is a languid,
lazy, drifting thing. Like flood wood in the
'strum, it is carried away by other forces
besides its own. And it amounts to
about as much in the movements of society
and the general progress of matcriu! tkin.'-'w.
A man thus conditioned is neither here? nor
there. He cannot be counted on for anything useful or entertaining. He becomes
shlftloss and inane in spite of his liotter
nature, and the incidental, benign influences
which cluster along in his path. We> have
heard of "a man without a country," but a
man without a purpose is quite as much
lost to himself and all his surroundings; an
isolated being without enterprise, spirit or
courage; in moral forco no stimulating
motive, no absorbing paiubn, he drills ami
ilrift* until lost iu the a* ix of his own
Inanity. Such a life is to Ircadcd above
all things. And there is poVcr and moral
forco in one's nature to rcnint the influences
which produce such a condition. They
shotld lie aroused to their highest tension
to avoid such a culmination.
The spectacle of the Piapot band of Indians filling a contract for the supply of hay
to the North WcBt Mounted Police stationed at Regina, is a striking instance of the
advancement of civilisation among th*
aboriginal tribes of the Canadian Northwest
and is indisputable evidence of the wijdom
of tho system of agricultural instruction
adopted about a decade ago by the Canadian
Government. With the progress that is
being made in this direction wo may expect
in ten years hence to find the Indians sturdy
competitors with tho whites in other
branches of industry besides farming.

If tho people of the State* need protection, as mi questionably they do.
the people of Canada need It:. thousand times more. Any wcakpntng
on the part of the Conservative party
upon the question of protection at

either Stand by Its colors or give way

Cuaitbr VI.—Thr Indian's Story.
From Abrncabra, Chief of the Seven
Mountains, etc., to the pale face from the
land of the whites. Greeting—Know it, oh
Stranger, that many moons since, even before the tall pines grew where thou art
abiding, The Great Spirit of our forefathers
told our wise men that where thy stump
bouse stands would be a great place. It
was commanded that one of our race should
live there always and know it, oh Stranger,
that one 1ms lived there season after season.
Many moons ago we were told that another
race of people were coming to this great
country from across the seas, and that the
pale faces would over run our land like the
rabbits on the ground, aud that wc should
be all hunted like the wild loins of the
mountains and killed and our homes de-
itroyed, ami that the pale faces would soon
occupy nil our land. The Great Spirit
warned our wise men to prepare and be
ready for our enemy, the great enemy that
was coming to destroy us and all over this
ginii country many moons ago. The Great
Spirit appointed places in the heart of the
great forests and on tho tops of the great
mountains to communicate with tho wise
men of our race. Our race waa then divided
up into tribes and each tribe had its wise
men and councillors, and one of tho wise
men of each tribe lived alone in each of
those places appointed by The Great Spirit.
All the tribes scattered north, east, west
and south and even y year a great council
was held, ut which all the wise men attended and all things were told of the doings of
the race. Oh pale face, season came and
season went, and gradually thy people were
increasing, coming at first like the incoming tide, slow at lirst, but with each succcs*
sivo wave gaining more power and more
fury. Wars were fought and then commenced the slaughter of both thy race and
of our people, This went on for years and
soon wo were reduced in numliers, hunted
like wild animals and killed. A great battle
was fought (it tho place where thy house is.
It was between a great tribe called the
Sookeves and another trilie called the Humpbacks. A pule face had been captured from
thy people, oh Stranger, ami it was ou ac
count of this beautiful pale faced woman
that our tribes fought. A great battle it
was, thousand* of our tribe were slain and
sen! to liie happy hunting grounds. Our
chief fell in love with thy pale faced sister
and during the gnat light carriod her off.
He hid near tliy house and lived there for
days, tine night he waa discovered by tbe
enemy and tied, leaving the pale face in the
hands of tlie Humpbacks, Thuy killed her,
oh Stranger, and left and traveled many
leagues to the heart of the great mountains.
Abracahra returned with biz braves and
found her, arid she was buried on the spot
where thy s'.ftiup house stands. The great
chief Altr-ii-abra and all the wise men of the
v by the sun, moon and sUr* and
all to the Great Creator of u* all and who
commands even the mountains, the sun and
the stars themselves.
The End.
Epilogue.— I.
Years have grown and died and yet years
grow and die aud things happen in all of
them that are beyond our philosophy and
the least of them is not, perhaps, the story
just told of the Legend of the Stump. The
most curious part about it is that the facts
related in it have come tu pass, the place ia
a thriving village, the country around is
welt settled and becoming more populated
day by day, the iron band of steel that
binds great continents together runs through
it and the whistle of tho locomotive is heard
just as it was heard years since by the inhabitant of the hollow tree. The Government surveyor camped within a stone's
throw of tho tree in question, a few days
since, and chopped right and left, cutting
the right of way for another railway. The
place is fast being built upon so that it has
come to pass that just as the old man told
the settlers who visited him, and who can
to-day well remember him and vouch for
the truth of tho story. I have gone to
greutor length than I first intended to, but
I must claim the reader's kind attention yet
a little longer before I draw the curtain
over this very singular, yet true Btory, as to
the main facts; of course beef is beef whether you serve it up by itself or with a little
sauce, but I venture to remark that I believe the many readers who have favored ine
with their kind attention while endeavoring to put before them the few facts in connection with this strange story, will agree
with me that the beef is a little better for
the sauce, or rather with a little sauce; and
so, my friends, I have taken advantageJof
your taste and served up what, perhaps,
would otherwise have been a little dry, with"
a little trimming and embellishment or, in
other words, sauce.; . ,-. „
One bright Spring morning as a party of
hunters were making their way across the
Sumas prairie, they came across the body of
a man lying on the grass, the carrion fowl
of the air arose and flew away as they approached. The corpse had lain there for
sonnet hue ami one amongst the party identified the body as that of the old man who
used to live in the stump. How the poor
man had died or how long he had been laying there, are questions that can never lie
answered until the great day when all
secrets must tie brought to light. The
huntji-s dug a bole in the prairie and, after
making a rude box of cedar, put in what
remained of the poor old man and gave him
decent burial. As one of them read the
words of the burial service, another covered
up the grave and soon all that was to lie
seen Mas a mound of earth. Just as they
rode away a meadow lark rose high into the
air and sang her song over the poor man's
grave as if i she knew that his bones bad
found a resting place and that it waa echo,
ce of some one wh'- was h-pp' f
ing tbe voice i
to sit up awhil*. th* old servitor resolved to tell tbe story ef Wanda'* lor*
to him. It cnt him to the heart to
wound tbe young man'* feelings, but he
knew the task must not be shirked.
"Now, Master George," be began, in
an agony of apprehension, "you mustn't
take on, but I've a bit o' news for thee,
lad, as wunnot perchance be welcome."
"You mean Miss Arlington's engagement to young EveshaM?" cam* the
question, bo calmly aad deliberately uttered that Bladon gazed ia stupefied
"Why, yes," he said, "that'* what I
meant; but how came the* to hear of
"Her mother told me yesterday. Oh,
dear old friend, don't look so woebegone. One would think that you were
the deserted lovur to see your long face.
It is a thing for us all to rejoice at, that
the sweet girl has won the love of such
a sterling fellow as Harry Kvcsham."
"But I thought you lo'ed the lass
"Loved her; of court* I did, and shall
love her as long as I have sense to appreciate the sweetness of her character."
"An' jet you give her up so quietly.
Why, when 1 was a lad—"
"You were a terrible fellow among
the lasse*, I don't doubt, Bladon; but I
am alraid you cannot quite understand
my feelings for Miss Arlington—I hardly can myself. You see 1 was not bo
far wrong when I told you she was to
be nothing more than a sister to me."
"An'you're not fretting over the loss
of the lass?"
"No," said Arundel calmly, "for I
have not lost her y»t. I do.not think
Harry Evesham will refuse to let her
still be my loving friend and sister."
"Like as not," Bladon confessed, but
the reflection did not give him unalloyed pleasure. It was bad enough for
the young master to be smitten with the
charms of a pretty girl, but to carry his
devotion to her fireside, when she was
* married woman, was a proposal be-
vond the old man'* philosophy.
Weeks passed by, and Ocorgo Arun-
5el was pronounced sufficiently recovered to return to his lodgings In Glastonbury. Of course Dolman was munificently recompensed for all the trouble he and hi* family had been put to,
and candidly confessed that he did not
mind how often he turned his house
into a hospital, under similar circumstances.
Things had settled down into their
old groove. The sunshine of early
spring was already loosening the; ice-
barriers of the big river, and the;' children were looking forward to the
emancipation of a long holiday, Vfhffn'
an event occtirttd that wad of so .startling a nature that it completely changed
the aspect of affairs, as far as Wanda
Arlington was concerned. '
This was none other than the: payment of the sum of ten thousand dbllar*
to her order in th* First national (bank
of Glastonbury. There was no clpw to
the payee. The bank officials w New
York who hsd transmitted th' ift
declared that it was sent la the ' ar
way of business at th* request i, r-

''Yes, I low ymi, Harry," »he murmurs almost inaudibly, with a faint,

The tree was burner] hollow and is the tame

and Abracahra will hunt for the spirit of

after having read the last, sheet and took
the whole bundle of birch hark and put it
in the lire. He then drew his blanket around
him and sainted me, went out, followed by
his dog, aud was soon out of sight. I now

Of course Miss Arlington wanfd to

refused to take advantage of heifl generosity, though it was agreed th It tin*
interest of the money should be largely

Then they hurried to notify [ Mr.
Hardcastle of tbe singular windfall, in
the hope that the news would reach
Harry before he started for Europe, but
here they were disappointed.
"Harry sailed on Wednesday. Tour
-otnmunication so important that I shall

ISOttM matters," the genial old gentle-
aau telegraphed.
And none was more pleased at Wan-
a's good luck than George Arundel.
Ie hud been the .lrst to congratulate
ler und combat a half-formed intention
o refuse, the money, which in the first
arprtsfl was seriously meditated.
Bladon was the only one who did not
cem quite satisfied with the situatioa
f affairs, or why did he mutter so mo-
Otoly to himself one day when he wae
moking his pipe under tho apple tree:
"So that's what that lawyer chap

him that hath shall be given, and from I *eienee an' Master Ueorge sitting by us
him that hath not shall be taken away
even that he hath."
Then Wanda shyly and with great effort tells the glorious news to William
Bladon, who oddly enough is now Inclined to be cross with her beeattte ■he"
has not preferred his boy us the idol of
her aiTeetioTis. So it happened that one
day, when George Arundel had gained
eo much strength that he was permitted
Jeinure as a cat by a cream howl—Lord,
t's enough to make a sitting-hen
laugh "
There was a flutter of preparation In
Mrs. fOvesham's cottage, for Harry's
friend and employer, the great Mr.
Hiirdeustle, hud graciously consented to
be its guest for a few flays. Imckily
circumstances had enabled tbe widow
to give up the store, which she had
metamorphosed into a pretty parlor,
and tbe old sitting-roora was converted
into u charming chamber for the distinguished guest.
He came, saw and conquered, and
had not been in the house a day before
he had won the affection of every member of the household, predisposed as
they were to reverence one who had
been so good to Harry.
Was ever u man so potted and made
so much of? The daintiest dishes were
essayed in his behalf; the brightest
flower adorned his chamber, and throe
charming women were ever ready to
listen with gleaming eyes to his endless
flow of reminiscences and small talk.
