I
APPENDED   is   a  communication:
from Stave River, the county in
v^S)   hi need of better roads.   Tlie
Government should aid them:
Rain came and put a damper on harvest •
ing for the present; we hear an expression
of hope for a dry change. Such is life,
when it is dry we want a change to wet,
and when it is wet nothing but a change-
will suit. In the weather reactions are
common, hut in the matter of roads tho
same cry is heard from year to year without
any relief.
There is not much grain out at present in
these parts.
Wm. Marsh has returned home from the
mouth of the Fraser river, where, he has
been fishing the past season. He says he
did not make a fortune this year. He will
fish up here this fall when the humpbacks
get out of the way. At present Mr. Marsh
and some others are catching sturgeon.
Mr. J. 0. Manner hud the misfortune tu
have one of his cows knocked off and killed
by a locomotive one day last week. He
saved the carcass for beef, however.
School is running along quietly this term,
with an average attendance, as near as we
can guess, of about twelve.
John Anderson is at his,home, np ou
"fitavo Wver, fm««ihitt filling A^vr. J~H» ^«t-
iu the season at Port Haney and did not
succeed in becoming wealthy. He says
they paid him six cents ami sold some of
them to the canneries for ten and twelve
cents each, and the balance were shipped
on ice.
What will become of us if something is
not done with the trump element that i-s
afloat, or what will become of the tramp if
something is not done to furnish them food?
They must be fed as long as the laud is full
to overflowing with food, or they will help
themselves. Winter is coming on and thousands of them are out of employment, begging bread from door to door. A solution to
the question: Why are so many men out of
employment? is iu the fact that tlie construction of railroads has abated and other
industries have cut down their help and the
result is self-evident. We will not see a.
change for the better in this respect, until
more of the laboring class make an effort to
put themselves in the way of making work
for themselves. Why is it that so large a
portion of humanity depend on their fellow
men for something remunerative to do? Is
it because of a growing desire among humanity to shirk cure ami obligation? If a
man keeps a house of his own and has a
cow and chickens, a few pigs, a dog and a
cut, cultivates a garden, and he is a single
man, he will have to be there every day in
the year to look after it, because he has
creatures under his care that are dependent
upon him. I think that this kind of life is
looked on as a sort of prison, a drudgery,
instead of u home where one by a reasonable
amount of thought and calculation, can
get all the employment he can do and
provide for himself means of support and
not be always dependent on another man to
| net you to work. Where there Is a will
there Is a way, and the way is easier than
one thinks.
Selbort Thompson has returned home.
Ho has been absent about one year, laboring on the Sound.

poor blind tJeorge ArunUol—that was a
different trouble. It was very well for'
him to talk about being" her adopted
brother, but she knew that his love for
her was of a very different nature, and
she was sure that she could never return bis affection in the way he wanted
it.
Then—ah,   then—floated  before her
Imagination a faee of typical beauty.
Biff, earnest, brown eyes seemed to be
looking  tenderly   into   hers, so vivid
was the picture that she could in fancy
have raised her hand to push away the
short,   clustering, brown  curls which
extended over the clear white forehead. [
She saw the pleasant smile on the well-
curved lips—nay, she could almost be-
lieve that they moved and whispered
her name In a tone of exquisite tenderness.   "Wanda" never sounded half so
sweetly as when he uttered it,   Rut she j
must not think of him—no, it would be
a crime of  ingratitude to fetter him
with her doworless love.   She would be i
brave, she would dismiss him forever j
from her   thoughts;  and, saying this
she concentrated her whole soul on the
beautiful vision, till—the wearied eye- i
lids closed, and sleep drew the curtain j
of oblivion over her wandering fancies, j
And the brown-eyed hero of Wanda's
dreams was none other than Harry |
Evesham, who, as Alphonse Damiens
had truly said, was pone to New York
to "make his fortune."
CHAPTER IX.
LOVE'S VOUNG DUBAMS.
But things brightened.
Time worked wonders even at dull
Havana.
Work — that splendid tonic for unstrung nerves—braced our heroine up to
a cheerful endurance of her surroundings.
Then her children had begun to love
her nnd their parents to appreciate her;
and, best of all, Alphonse had ceased to
persecute her, though she learned that
he had managed to pick up an acquaintance with her friends at Glastonbury.
Then she was cheered by the most
delightful riOWSof Harry Kveshum, who I
had won the esteem of Mr. liar donatio,
a railroad magnate living in Krooklyn,
who had appointed him bis private secretary with a salary beyond his wildest
expectations.
"What a charming man the old gentleman must be," Wanda mused, as she
read Harry's description of him—"rich,
in the beginning' of a hah1 old age, a
bachelor without relations or intimate*
friends, he treats me like a son and his
magnificent mansion is "a home to mA*'
VVanjjg smiled. What a lucky old miaa
she tnoughfcMr. Hardcastle roust think
himself tu enjoy the constant companionship of so gifted a person as Harry
Evesham.
Hut the climax of her satisfaction was
reached when one winter's day the old
veteran with a wooden leg who in a desultory manner presided at the telegraph
office brought her a dispatch from Mrs.
Evesham that Harry was coming home
on a visit.
Harry coming' home!
1 am afraid to confess that she took
the precious paper and kissed it.
Ah! she was glad now that she bad
shown no malice toward Damiens—
even a little glad that she bad consented to allow him to drive George

Arundel out to FTavann to spend the
evening—a suggestion that had been
heartily Indorsed by Kate for, who
lenow ' perhaps Harry might come
wifli them but no; he would probably
not leave New York until after the telegram ■• :r sent,
Anyhow, she watched Lhe slow. tnov<
ing fingers of tho clouk In school on that
oven If til afternoon.
At Inst the hour of dismissal came,
The last little lad had bundled lip his
head In his "comforter" ami made his
bow, tin- last, little maid had donned
her cloak and rubbers   and   held up her
chubby faee for n parting kiss, when
Wanda began to make preparations for
her departure. She generally was the
tardlcsl to leave, as her cavalier. Ii.,1,
Sloeum, hud "chores" to do at homn
which deprived him of tho felicity of
escorting toachor homo.
she had just. put. the finishing touches
to tho arrangomont of her white woolen
hood, in which her swool face hone
forth too howltehingly for description,
when iir heard n gentle tapping at tho
school-room door.
"Come in!" she said, eheerfitlly, quite
oxpoctlng to sco some wee mlto appear
to claim her sympathy and redress for
having boon unmercifully snowballed,
so tho start she gave when Alphonse
Damiens, hat in hand, presented himself, mi"lit be readily 0XCt1scd<
"I left Hi.- tcnin and Sit. Arundel at
.Stewart's, Miss Wnndn, and walked
up here, hoping yon would allow me to
accompany you home," ho said, with
great deference.
"Thanh you, I shall be ready in one
moment, Mr.   Damiens," alio replied,
carelessly, though her flushed cheek belied the serenity of her manner. If she
only knew the wild turmoil of passion
which thrilled his soul she would have
been even less at ease.
He scarce!}* hears her, as she adds
another coil to the wrap round her
white throat.
"Now I am ready," Wanda says, and
they pass out into the lonely road, with
the frozen river on one side of it and
the snow burdened pines on the other.
"I would not be presumptuous, Miss
Arlington, but may I say that this little walk is a glimpse of Heaven to me?"
he falters.
He feels the soft hand on his arm
tremble, he sees the tearless misery
which comes into the eyes and dims
them.
"Let—let us walk faster," she whispers senrcely above her breath.
"Go fiastert" he echoes bitterly. "Yes,
I had almost forgotten myself. There
should be a short cut to the left here.
Are you cold?"
"No," she says, but there is a tremor
in her voice, which she strives hard to
render light and cureless.
"Go faster!" he says with a despairing shrug of his shoulders. "Ah, if
these hours of torment would only go
faster. Do you remember the day that
first I saw you? You were standing at
Mrs. Evesham's cottage door one July
evening and the wind blew my straw
hat to your feet. You picked it up and
gave it to me."
"I do not remember—I have forgotten," Wanda says indistinctly.
"It seems an age to me—an age—
I—"
He stops, for something like a sob
strikes his ear.
He looks down into her face. It is
pale, and the red, ripe lips are tremulous.
He has mistaken her emotion. The
red flush flies to his face, then leaves it
white with suppressed excitement.
"What! Wanda!" he hesitates, for,
with a quiver of the lids, tears are
springing to the blue eyes. "What!
you are crying! Is it possible you love
me, girl?" and he seizes both her hands
and looks down into her face with a
hungry glare. "Is it possible? Look
at mo, Wanda. Oh! Heaven! I long,
and yet I dare not hope. Wanda, you
know I love you. You cannot help but
know it. 1 have loved you since the
first moment I saw you. I never dreamt
that you would give me hope to love.
No, it cannot be. Look at me, Wanda.
Is it possible that—you—love—me?"
Slowly and fearfully the words drop
from his lips.
Then she tries to draw her hands
away, but he only clings the harder.
"Speak, Wanda." he says, hoarsely.
"Do you love me?" .       *
Then sae speaks. Slowly, heavily
she lifts far eyes to his and looks at
him with a great yearning misary and
sotfriiirMnith fulness in them. "I am
BO Borry that you should entertain such
feelings for me. Mr. Damiens, for I can
never return your love."
She sees him quiver under the blow
she has struck, and with a woman's
tenderness seeks to heal the wound.
"Oh! do not look like that." she cried,
for he has dropped her hands and
stands before her dazed like one in a
dream.
"I cannot help mv looks." he says,
bitterly. "Not '-an 1 help loving you.
His no crime to love you, Wanda—Miss
Arlington. *'
"Nor for me to be unable to look upon you as oilier than a friend."
"Yes, yes, that is true." he replied
hurriedly. "You must be my friend. I
will not annoy you-with my solicitations. I will worship you in silence."
Sin*   COUld    not   see   his   face.     She
could not see the cunning malignant
gleam of those dark eyes, nor imagine

How glad George  Arundel  was to
n t her. nnd she gave him both her
hands, while her faee beamed with joy
lo woloomo him. There was no fear of
Ibis generous friend annoying1 her by
pleading his suit, though she knew that
lie loved her very dearly. Women like
to be loved. I would not give a fig for
tho woman who does not, and who cannot spate a litlle hit of tenderness for
the man whose devotion pleases her,
aud yet he loyal  to him who is hing of
her affootlona.
So Watlda Arlington exerted her best
ofTorti to muhc it pleasant for her blind
friend, who was iu a seventh heaven of
delight. She had sueh tnct, too, as Alphonse Damtons noticed with glowing
eyes. George Arundel's wishes were ,
anticipated before he could express
them. She flitted round his chair with
a tender solicitude which was madden-
bag to the young Frenchman, and altogether conducted herself Jn such a way
that a hell of jealousy was raging in
his heart, though pleasant words tripped
from his smiling lips.
Outside a storm was gathering. The
wind came howling up the river with a
roar that deafened one and dashed the J
sleet in fierce flurries against the window shutters—then was as suddenly
still.

sitting whittling a piece.ol»'ood, after
the manner of the riverside men. "I
hate them'pesky gusts—sure signs o' a
hurrikin' afore dawn."
"What an old croaker you are,"
Damiens interposed fretfully; "you'll
scare Mr. Arundel out of all enjoyment
of his drive to-night."
4 'An' ef I was Mister Arundel I'd know
when I was well off, an' I .wouldn't—"
he saw the warning lookVwhe Frenchman, and paused to recoUr his mistake, "I wouldn't care a duil for all the
storms as ever blowed alonTthc river,
ef Thonse himself was hotfjp' the ribbons over them young bosses o'his'n."
"1 have the greatest confidence in Mr.
Damiens too," Wanda said, charmingly,
"for 1 am sure he would m-t lead Mr.
Arundel into danger."
"No, indeed," Arundel i:

making to-night over a handful of snow
and a cupful of wind. One would think
that Mr. Arundel and myself were
made of maplo-sugar to hear you talk.
Make up your mind, Miss Arlington, to
forget the-storm; for, if ybu will fortify
us with a cup of Dolraame old cider-
hot, with a roasted crab in.it—I will
undertake to land your fri^a safe and
sound at Glastonbury inssWA of two
hours of the time of starting."
"Yer couldn't do it!" Dolman cried
disputatiously. "Yer couldn't begin ter
doit, Thonse; onless yer crossed the
bay at Breckenridge's farm, an' no man
in his senses 'ud try sicb a game as that
on a night like this."
None hut Dolman saw the threatening
glance of the Frenchman's eye as he
uttered these words.
"Don't you think I'm capable of handling the bashaws. Dolman?" Damiens
asked fiercely. 'Traps you'a like to
send one of the 'gyurls' to take care
of us?"
While Damiens and Dolman fetched
the horses round to the door, Wanda,
with her own fair hands, was engaged
in muffling up George Arundel for his
midnight ride.
"It is bitterly cold outside," she said,
with a shudder, "I wish I could persuade you and Mr. Damiens to stay all
night at the hotel."
"And frighten poor old Bladonoutof
bis wits?   Why, he   would arouse the
whole city with bis lamentations if I
did not put in an appearance," George
. trated, with a Light laugh.
"Then, good-by, which, I bolieve,
means 'God be with you!'" Wanda said,
a little solemnly.
"He is always with those who trust
in [Hm," Arundel replied, catching the
tone of ber mood.

"Are   yon   ready,   rPhonse?"    asked
Dolman, wrestling with the bits of the
fiery animals.
"Aye, let 'em go!"
And with a bound which lifted the

dashed at headlong speed down the
frozen street.
"Not eggsaoly the team as a nervous

CHAPTER   XI,
A  MAIl ill I IK,
Alphonse Damiens' wrists were as
strong ns steel, but it was Amir little
time before he could brlngwis horses
down lo steady trot. They Ittartod at
their own shadows in the occasional'
glimpses of moonlight; tin1 flcj.ee gusts
of wind which came with more con-,
stant fury terrified them into mad re-
bellion and, when the snow beat their
faces and the cutting sleet lashed their
sides, it was all that accomplished
horseman could do to keep them in
hand. Hut at last he succeeded in reduc-
ing their speed to a swift,swinging trot,
which carried them gayly over the j
ground to the rythmic cadence of the
sleigh bells.
"Keep the buffalo robe well wrapped
around your knees," Damiens said.   "I |
think we had better try the marsh; it j
will save at least five miles."
"Try the marsh; do you mean the bay
Dolman was speaking of? Is it not
rather a dangerous road?"
"Bahl   Dolman is an old woman—the i
bay, or marsh, whatever you like to |
call it, is safe enough  to a man who
knows his road.   But if you are afraid,
why—"
"No, no, I am in your hands," Arundel said hastily, "go whichever way
pleases you best."
"Then, hold on, for we turn down a
hill here, and the deseent is a little
awkward."
So awkward that it seemed to George
Arundel aB though they were going
down the roof of a house, but ere he
could confess his alarm, the runners
grated on the level rough ice of the
frozen river.
The relief was instantaneous. The
cold, cutting blasts of wind lost their
fury in the shelter of the high bank,
and the horses, blown with their furious
speed, relaxed their pace to a gentle
walk.
"This is ever so much pleasanter,"
Arundel observed, "though I think we
ran some risk to get here. A blind
man, you know, Mr. Damiens, may be
excused for being a little nervous, and
my being frightened must not be construed into a slight of your magnificent
accomplishments as a Jehu."
"Oh, I'm all right and the horses
know me," was the careless response;
"but you ought not to mind a little danger for the enjoyment of so much happiness as you have had to-day. There's
many a man would go through twice as
much for such a reward."
"Yes, I have had a delightful day,"
Arundel replied, puzzled at the sudden
change of his companion's tone.
"And, when is the marriage to come
" the Frenchman asked abruptly.
"The marriage—what marriage?"
"Why your own, of course—yours
and the pretty teacher's," was the
coarse reply.
"Do you mean by the pretty teacher
to refer to Miss Arlington?"
"Who else? You are not ashamed of
your choice, I suppose?"
"Has anyone dared to hint at such a
thing?" Arundel demanded in angry
tones.   '
"No need to hint—I've got eyes in my
head to see with, I suppose, if you have
'not;J,*Was-lhcb»utairejoira?lcr. *      *
"I don't know what you mean by assuming this tone to me," George said,
highly indignant; "to taunt me with
my affliction is not a very brave thing
to do, Mr. Damiens. Perhaps, if I had
the blessed privilege of sight, you
would be more careful in your selection
of words and your manner of using
them."
"Bah! What do you mean by snapping
a man's head off for venturing a remark?   Is Wanda Arlington—"
"Please, Mr. Damiens, let Miss Arlington's name rest."
"Oh, so Miss Arlington must not be
talked about, or even thought about, I
suppose, by anyone but Mr. Arundel.
How selfish you successful lovers are."
George was silent. A retort rose to
his lips, but he wisely curbed his
tongue.    Helpless  as   he  was,   what

TO CORRESPONDENTS i
Thk Nkws desires to secure a good, reliable and breezy correspondent at every town
and postoflice in British Columbia—one
whose letters will present a complete, chatty
and accurate record of the happenings of interest iu his locality, from week to week.
The editor of this paper will he glad to

willing to represent The News, in the capacity of correspondent in their respective
communities, that all details relating to
this service may he satisfactorily arranged,
us soon as possible.

paper will be paid up the first week in

TEA PARTY.
Cedar valley will have a tea party
next Tuesday, for the benefit of tbe
church. These people have erected
their little church without asking for
any external aid. There are a few
things, however still to lie done for
tbe inside of the church, before it is
complete. While the people in the
Valley do not ask for anything for
nothing, save what they arc willing
to give returns for. yet it would seem
friendly on the part of the people of
Mission City and vicinity, if they
were to turn out in a body to give a
helping hand to a plucky and deserving people in the completion of n
religious hnnlc for themselves and
families. It will be all opportunity
to sec that promising section which
augurs so much in the future importance of this country.
THE EXPOSITION.
Tlie Exhibition al New Westminster
the latter part of this month, promises
to be one of the most successful undertakings of tbe kind ever held in
tlie Province, No reasonable efforts
will be left uncxertcil by the authorities of lhe Royal City to make it
both interesting and beneficial to all [
strangers ili.it shall visit there during
tbe days of the Exhibition, Tbe peo
pie of New Westminster arc entitled
to praise for tlie energy displayed
thus far iu securing such a vast i
assortment of entertaining material
ns shown in their program me. and in
advertising it broadcast all over lhe
Province in BUoh a complete ami perfect manner. The News advises all
the people of this city ami vicinity,
that can afford lhe luxury, to visil
New Westminster on that occasion.
It is not a sectional affair, but a
Provincial Exposition, calculated to
inspire the people in all branches of
industry to increase their efforts in
the development of its various
branches which must result first to i
their own personal benefit as well as
to the building up of the country, in j
a true and substantial manner, that
they have chosen for their future
home. To do this the Exhibition
should lie encouraged by the people
of the Province generally and par-'
ticularly those that live close at
hand.
RECLAMED UNDS.
Tie- Dyking Ad of British Columbia, has been one of the most valuable pieces of legislation ever enacted in this Province    The benefits of
tins legislation arc already apparent.
Several large tracts of land have
already been reclaimed and others
are in course of being done. There
is no question but, what in the course
of a few years, lhe entire I'liiser river
will be held within bounds by a per
feet system of dyking. I'nlil that is:
done the lands susceptible to period
leal overflows,  will not be of real
value to the owners of said lands.
The fact lhat all these lands can be
thoroughly reclaimed isthe strongest
argument in their favor and of their
future value. The I'itt Meadows are
now being reclaimed, and tbe Com
inissioners who inspeeled the work |
done hitherto, declare It to be a satisfactory success. There are. large
tracts of fb(! finest hinds in the valley, in the vicinity of Dewdney, that
should lie reclaimed, The people of
that locality should study this question, in all its bearings, as regards to
their own welfare. They have it, iu
their power to  make their lands the
DEL W1ITFVL WE A THEE.
The past week has been remarkable for its beautiful weather. Pew
countries, if any, arc blessed with
such a delightful climate. The farmers of this vicinity are doubtless able
to appreciate it to its fullest extent.
It is a capital season for the harvesting of tlie grain. Tlie present season
was late in its beginning. The rain
of last week threatened tlie success
ful harvesting of the grain, but the
charming weather of the present
week lias dispelled every fear, and
every farmer is relieved of the least
anxiety.
FALSELY ACCUSED.
For the benefit of tbe people of
Port Hammond and vicinity, it is
stated that Mr. A. 1.. Lazenby is not
the author of the Maple Ridge correspondence in The News, and is
free of all responsibility in conuec
tion therewith.
WHAT A CONTRAST.
I'. .1. Morin of Dewdney. was ad
initte 1 to bail in bonds of (2,000 for
killing a heifer that was not his own.
S. I'. Cnrnsi of 1'ort Angeles. Washington, was admitted to bail of
$1,00') for killing a man. Surely a
eow must be more valuable in Hritisli
Columbia than a human being in the
stao- of Washington.
The Endeavor Standard, published in
Vancouver, in tic- interest of the Christian
Endeavor movement m the Province, is the
latest addition u, the monthly joarnalsof

Charged With Cattle Stealing.
A charge of cattle stealing was heard in
the District Court this morning, before
Capt. Pittendrigh, S. M., in which p. J.
Morin was charged by J. U. Marquette
with tlie theft of a two-ycar-ohl heifer, on
or about June 26th, at Dewdney,
J. B. Marquette swore that in June he
purchased a number of cattle at a sheriffs
sale at Dewdney, which he afterwards sold
to G. R. Wren, leavng two heifers on Mor-
in's place, paying §10 for their keep. In
July witness missed one of the heifers, and
on Sept. 8th he found its hide iu York's
butcher shop, Mission City, defendant having sold it to York in July.
Three other witnesses gave evidence',
bearing out what Marquette had said.
Defendant gave evidence on his own behalf,
and said he considered the cattle were his
own when he paid Marquette their value.
He understood he was responsible for the
cattle or their value in money. He had
arranged with Marquette to keep the cattle,
and when they were fat he was to kill them
and pay him. Marquette came one day to
the farm and was going to drive the cattle
away when defendant objected to him doing
this and told Marquette that he (Marquette)
had bought the cattle for him at the sale,
and he was now ready to pay for them; but
Marquette refused to take the money and
drove away several of the heifers.
When cross-examined, defendant said he
! did not tell  Marquette he had killed the
Hastings St., or. Seymour St., , betfor. nor had he since then offered to pay
near Lelaud Hotel.    If you can not come ' Marquette for it.

AUGUST.
Kow languorous summer, weary unto Death,
Lolleth anil   dreams among her poppy
flowers,
And coying softly with the lazy hours,
She   seorcheth nil things with her sultry
breath;
'Till with her own delights she nuurrelleth,
And when the noonday faint before her
cowers
Xhe yearneth for the eool autumnal showers,
Aud of Iter dalliance she woaryoth.
Anon she slumbers! in her dreaming sweet
The sunlight swims around her veiled eyes.
Haply she dreameth of her love complete,
Or of lier ilutt'ring distant argosies !
Cometh September, kneeling at her feet,
And in his longing arms she swoons and
dies.
—Emma ('. Head in tho Canadian Magazine.
THE LEGEND OFJHE STUMP,
Chapter II.—The Discovery,
In duo time I arrived at the spot Indicated by my dream, and was astonished to
jinil a large tree, hollow inside, and fitted
up exactly as it had been seen by me the
jiiglit previous. The donr was shut when I
.got to the stump, but I had no difficulty in
getting in, as only a log held it fastened.
On the table inside laid a letter with tlie
following Inscription, To him whom the
Godfl favor ami Iii ids this place, open in the
name of tlie Hun, Moon and Stars and follow its instructions and thou will gain
knowledge. There was no signature attached to this strange epistle, but three crosses
were placed at the bottom surrounded by
the sun, moon, stars and tlie different signs
of tbe zodiac.
I opened the letter as directed, and read
as follows: This tree was tlie abode of one
before thou was, but who lias gone the way
all mortals must go. It lias pleased tlie
Gods to reveal certain tilings. Whoever
lives here and waits will bo enlightened,
but they must live alone. If thou art the
man and will obey, welcome thou art to
stay; or, if thou won't obey, welcome thou
art to go.
Then followed the three crosses, with the
heavenly bodies surrounding them, as ou
the outside of the envelope. I evidently
was the man who was expected to live here,
as I had been shown the place in a peculiar
manner, and even guided to tin: very spot
the night before by some strange hand. I
decided, therefore, to follow the instructions in the letter and remain.
Chapter III.—What I Saw.
I made myself as comfortable as possible
and soon got to like the place, It watsotne
time after 1 had been here when, one evening after returning home from a limit, I was
witting at the dour smoking. Tho miii was
nearly set and twilight east a reflection on
everything around. Instead of getting
darker as is the usual course, it got more
luminous and 1 saw a lot of men moving
about In all directions and heard tbe sounds
of chopping and the crash ol trees falling in
all directions. Directly opposite me were
some large tents and I could see the cook
preparing food for the men at work, but
not a voice could I hear; no one seemed to
speak.
After watching the men some time I got
up and went towards tiie tents, as I WM
afraid of the trees falling on my house. 1
had hardly gone a dozen'yards when everything became black as ink; the Bounds
.stopped, and I could see or hear nothing. I
had some difficulty in finding my way back
home, and, after getting in, I sat for a long
time thinking of tlie strange things the
reflection of the setting buh bad shown me.
Another night I will tell you about the
moon and the stars and the strange things
they showed inc.

The CiinrtOiitn   ftlftg&Xlne   for •Septeinlier.
The Canadian Magazine for September is
a very bright number, rich in variety and
interest, and surpassing all previous numbers in the copiousness and excellence of its
illustrations. Prof. Bryce, on "The Manitoba School Question," replies to Mr. Ewart'a
previous article on "Isms in the Schools,"
introducing facts regarding the situation
in Manitoba of which Canadains generally
have hitherto been ignorant. Brastus U'i-
man under the caption, "A Whirlwind of
Disaster," presents a view of tin- causes <<f
depression in tin; United States, which,
from its novelty and the forcible way in
which it Is presented, "ill attract much
attention and criticism fn Canada nnd the
United States, Another article of great
interest, to the commercial world generally
is thai by V'ortigern, on the "Financial De<
prossion of Australasia," "A study in Crim*
onology," by Rov. VV, S.  Blacks took,  is w

Meadows; when this work will have been
linisbed there will have been a vast tract of
the finest grain growing land iu the Province ready for the plow.
Bear hunting is all the fashion, with out-
local Nimrods, at present. A party went
out last week and, after distributing a
whole arsenal somewhere in the woods,
secured a small black liear, which your correspondent had the pleasure of viewing as it
lay still beautiful in death.
The bear is not a selfish animal by any
means, as your Hammond correspondent
proves in your last weeks issue, when the
bear absolutely refused an offer of the
World, being content in bis primitive state
with a small portion of British Columbia.
We are inclined to think the bear would be
successful in the real estate agency.
