London, May 11.—Tl ire is no more
remarkable feature In the history ol Lord
Salisbury's administration than the absolute ignorance In which tho country
has been content, to remain as regards its
relation with all Ihe greal powers. The
onstant. diplomatic activity which is
seldom without its good reasons and the
indications that Germany is once more
spreading ils net before the Hriiish Government, have at. length alarmed
politicians of all classes regarding the extent to which England has heen pledged
to   support the   Triple  Alliance  iu   the
event of European complications.
ROUMANIAN    AFFAIRS
al present attract great attention in Eastern Europe. The German paper representative, M. Cartagi, the Roumanian
render as a Russophile, and the Russian
press expresses satisfaction wilh the
present turn of Roumanian affairs. Bnt
the Germans have a considerable interest in Roumania, The King is a German
Prince and Roumania has long been regarded as the bulwark of Austria against
a southward march on tbe part of Russia.
Since 1K00 there have been only two
causes of international trouble in
Europe, the everlasting quarrel between Franco and (lermany, and the
quarrel between Russia and Turkey, or
as the latter is called, the Eastern Question. The Franco-German quarrel was
not settled in 1870, and from time to
lime causes fresh uneasiness, but il is
perfectly certain that neither
the German nor the l-'rench
Government desires war, and lhat both
will take all reasonable precautions
against precipitating a struggle. Tlie
danger lies in the possible outbreak of
some dispute elsewhere which might
bring on an explosion of the pent up antagonism between the western powers.
Such a clanger has boon fe.-ii-e.l ,-ver since
the Servo-Bulgarian war in lone. The
events of that year unexpectedly placed
a new obstacle in the path marked out
for Russian influence in tlie East. The
Russian government, impatient nnd annoyed, fumed and fretted and set in
motion the machinery of diplomacy aud
intrigue, but. beyond this the Russians
were not disposed to go to (leriuany
loudly proclaiming that Bulgaria was not
a German intereet. They were restrained
by the eagerness of the Austrian-, who
might have drawn Auslria into
a risky enterprise. lint. at
the snnie time Germany completed extensive new preparations
for war und encouraged Austria to follow
her example. There was a great deal of
excitement and strain. Russia has never,
during the whole conflict, taken the bit
between her teeth, but she has kept
up the pressure quietly and steadily,
gradually marching her armies across her
vast, territories and quartering Ihem
in readiness for war among the frontiers
facing Austria and Roumania. Austria
lias replied by filling (iallicia with troops
and fortifying its chief points, while Roumania has 'oug been discussing the
Strengthening of her one possible line of
defence against Russian attack. In this
state of the relations between the three
empires, the policy of Roumania has
been of much signification for Bucharest,
which is a sort of focus in which Ihe
present phase of the eastern question is
concentrated. King Charles has, of
course, always been in favor of an adherence to the central-power. The
Roumanian ministries of Bi at in no, ami
of Carp and Rosctti were also in tlie
main, of tbe same way of thinking. M.
Oatargl, as an opposition leader, it is
feared will upset this tradition. Hnnco
British statesmen outside of the cabinet
are now anxiously inquiring. "Whal
docs Prince Bismarck wanl from England and whal di.es he propose lo give in
return?" Is ita guarantee ot tlalus quo in
the Mediterranean, or assistance ti
Turkey on lhc, coast nf lhc Black Sea.
or is Lord Salisbury allowing himself to
he bullied into diplomatic support ni I lei -
many in mailers of European policy by
the perpetual threat of Ihe Chancellor
to cause trouble for England in Egypt.
The Berlin conservative politicians were
idled with something like dismay hy ibe
announcement mi Friday that there wus
a dclicit of ninety million franc- iu tbe
Italian budget. This Information, coining just at this moment, when it Is intimated that the removal of Milan Obreno-
vitcb from the Servian throne was a blow-
struck at the "Austro-llungarian" Influence in the Balkan peninsula, from
which il can hardly recover, has shaken
the faith of many as In the strength and
endurance of the Triple Alliance. The
eclipse of thc Austrian Influence in
Servla would possibly have been remedied
by Prince Bismarck ere this, had il not
heen for tlie course of events
in Italy during Ihe post several months, which now threaten
tho very existence of Ihe league of
Ill.OOn  AND  IKON
on the Italian side of the Alps, Ihe lavish
military and naval expenditure of ihe
Italian  government,   the continuance of
which was the essentia! condition  of the
alliance, the  fresh  expenditures of mil-1
lions on tbe Massowah expeditions, audi
finally the breaking oil' of  negotiations I
for the renewal of tlie commercial treaty I
with France have caused most w idosproad
misery.   There is hardly a considerable ;
(own where relief works  have not  been [
forced   iu   unwilling  municipalities   to
avoid.riots on the one hand and to prevent wholesale deaths  from starvation
and on the other.   In  Rome   itself   the!

New York, May 11.—There was a fair
attendance in Madison Square Garden
to-night to witness the close of the six
days go-as-you-please contest which began shortly after midnight on Monday
morning lasl, Herty had a good lead
at 7 o'clock and is almost certain of lirst
place, The other contestants hobbled
around the track like invalids. Cart-
wright had evidently given up his fruitless attempt to cut down Herty's lead,
and contented himself wilh being sure of
second place. Herty was away behind
bis record. The enthusiasm attending
tlie close of such a contest has not one
whit abated, however, hut was
just as pronounced as when Little-
wood made his remarkable record in the lasl contest. Hefty was the
favorite, and he wus the recipient of
many beautiful floral tributes.
The leaders came on the track at ti'A-i
p, m., and from that lime lo the finish
the garden resounded with almost continuous applause, Cartwright on Ids appearance was presented with a handsome
eul-glass goblet set ill a silver bolder,
llegelinaii got two large baskets of
flowers, and in recognition of these
favors Ihe men spurted fnr a quarter of a
mile, tin completion of his live hundredth Smith retired. The second mau
to leave was Sullivan, Hegelmon ami
Cartwright followed al 9:80. Hughes retired fifteen minutes later having covered
615 miles. He was ready to drop with
fatigue. IIcily aud Golden retired at
0:65. The only man remaining on the
track was Taylor, At 10:10 p. in. Herty
reappeared dressed in streel apparel.
Manager O'Brien introduced him to tbe
crowd lhal surrounded him as the winner of the match, lb- also announced
he would start the lady bicycle
race that is to be inaugurated at the
Garden 6 minutes after midnight on
Monday morning. The crowd then made
a rush'for the door and in a few minutes
the garden was descried. Two thousand
live hundred dollars will he divided as
their portion of the gale receipts among
the seven walkers who covered 600 miles
and over as follows:—

An invention that U being used for sending
coin through the mails consists of a piece of
paste board about tho size of an envelope. In
it are boles the slzo of a silver quarter, a half
dollar and a dollar, with rod |iajier seals ready
to pasto across, each slot. A coin can be put
in and sealed, inclosed to an envelope and
sent through the mails In safety.
Paper doors aro said to be great improve-
moots over wooden ones. They are formed
of two thick pa;ior boards, stamped and
molded into panels and glazed together with
glue and potash and then rolled through heavy
rollers. After being covered with a waterproof coating and one that is fireproof, they
are painted, varnished and hung In their usual
mny.
It ls a matter of history that onco, here in
Boston, says The Post, a venerable man turned
some strangers out of a pew which he sup-
jiosod to bo (lis own. and then, after they had
taken refuge iu the one Immediately behind
it, got up and turned thorn out of that, having discovered in tho mean time that ho had
made a mistake, his own pew being that lost,
mentioned.

Hero is a new word. The New York Sun
notes It as follows: "Iu tbe Asbury park
directory ocaurs this name: 4J. R. Borden,
motornoor.' Thus a now word has been coined
for tho language. A motorneer is the man
who rides on tho front of an electric car aud
handles the trolly, which runs on the wire
overhead and eouvoys tho electricity from tho
wires to tho motor under tho car."
"Whon does the Tweutletli century begin!"
Is Hskod. Tho Instant after Doc. 31, WOO, and
not 1890, as many believe. The reason Is this:
Tho First century did not end with tho year
09, hut with tho year 100, the Second with tho
yonr 200, the Nineteenth with tho year WOO—
Just ns your first hundred dollars ends with
100, and your second begins with 101 and ends
with 200. Some people absolutely won't seo
this.

CORRUPTION    IN    THE   INDIAN
CIVIL SERVICE.
English authors  and travellers have
led us to believe that our Civil  Service—
at least its more responsi
hie and  highly
paid officials are-unlike their brother
officers in say Russia, the United States,
Turkey, etc., above suspicion so far as
being accessible to bribery is concerned.
Recent events, however, have helped
somewhat to cause the scales to fall from
our eyes and to dispel one more of the
many cherished delusions with which we
started in life. No less a personage than
the Commissioner of tho Central Division
of the Bombay Presidency has been
proved guilty of obtaining money by
methods so irregular and dubious as to
appear to the uninstructed intelligence to
[all little short of the most ordinary corrupt dealing and peculation. Not only is
this unfortunately the caBe, but several
of his brother magistrates either declined
altogether to give evidence or calmly
swore to their own corruption, Now
comes the amazing part of the story.
Lord Reay, the Governor of Bombay,
refused to accept the suggestion of the
Indian bench that thecorrupt magistrates
should be removed from olliee, whereupon the London Times appealed to public opinion in England to bring liim to a
better sense of his duties. We make no
apology for inserting fn exttnto the conclusion ol a most able leading article
published in a recentcopy of the Times—
just to hand—which will, we feel, give
our readers a clearer idea of the stato of
the Civil Service at present In tlie administration of our groat Dependency.
A week later Lord Cross telegraphed
that "he presumed incriminated magistrates were suspended irom exercising
judicial lunctions pending consideration
of case." To this Lord Rkav replied that
such magistrates had been suspended,
though we note with some astonishment
that Sir John Gorst's answer of last
week was the lirst intimation of the fact
given either in India or in this country.
In fact, all our correspondence from
India down even to tlie latest date has
Itemed to imply that the incriminated
magistrates were still being maintained
in oflice. However this may be, two
months later, after the Secretary of Slate
had had un opportunity of considering
the papers on the subject forwarded by the Bombay Government, he telegraphed on April 9:—
General rule must be that those who
have given bribes must be deprived of
magisterial fund ions, und must leave it
to you to discriminate between eases;
but I appreciate importance of pledges
given by government, and also leave it
to you to provide such compensation for
individuals as you may think necessary.
Prompt action is essential." Here again
it is plain that the Governor of Bomhay
has been overruled by the Secretary of
State. It appears to have required the
direct intervention of Lord ('miss to induce Lord Rkay to suspend the incriminated magistrates.".
We have no official information as to
what the "pledgeB given by the Government" were; but if they were, as our
trustworthy correspondent at Calcutta
has asserted, to the effect that the incriminated magistrates should be maintained in their offices and continue to
discharge judicial functions, we have no
hesitation in saying that such pledges
ought to be disallowed, nor have we any
doubt that this is the meaning of the
Secretary of State's telegram. Full
pecuniary compensation should of course
he given to those who have been led to
expect it, and if any indemnity against
criminal proceedings has been promised, the promise ought to be respected.
But any pledge to allow men, who are
known to be corrupt by their own confession and are known to be corrupt by
those whom they are to judge, to continue
n thc exercise of their judicial functions,
to permit, as Mr. JueriCB Soon- put it,
a violator ol the law to remain its administrator, is manifestly disallowed by the
plainest principles of public policy and
the simplest considerations ol good government. Such a pledge would not U'
tolerated lor a day in Knglaml; a fortiori
it ought not to be tolerated for a day in
India, whero the whole fabric of administration depends on the purity and incorruptibility of British justice. We can
only regret that it should seem to have
required the authority of the Secretary
of State to impress upon Lord Reay the
importance of recognizing and acting
upon such vital and yet such elementary
principles of British administration iu
India.
these chosen portions of leading articles
are almost invariably culled from those
papers which are avowedly, inimical to
tbe interests of the Government at present holding the reins al Westminster.
Beside.-, a fragment of an article—or, indeed, of a speech for that matter—taken
by itself and completely isolated from its
context is in the highest degree misleading. We bold that il is the province of
a newspaper—worthy of the name—
whilst professing to give the opinion of
tho press of another country, to have no
political leanings whatever, but simply
to present the plain, unvarnished truth,
allowing tin- reading public to draw its
own inference. Those amongst lis who
read English, or perhaps we should rather
say British papers (though to us the
terms are synonymous), in addition to
our local dailies and.weeklies, will readily understand how il is thut it lias happened more than onco lo Un- present
writer, that newcomera have asked bim
tlie question, "How comes it thai in
countries such as (be United Stale-and
Canada English news seems to
have been selected mainly with a view
to the currying of favor with the (llad-
stonians rather than with llu- Conservative party? Our own sympathies'are
—or at any rule wire-din ing many
years residence in Ihe mother country,
on tlie so-called popular, or liberal side,
where Ireland was concerned. A wider
experience gained by wanderings through
various countries, has induced us to some
extent lo modify our views on this burning question, and has taught us to often
repeat the well-worn old formula "hear
tbeothei- side." We would just venture
to remind those of our readers whose
knowledge of Imperial politics has been
gained either at second-hand, or was acquired long years ago, that Great Britain
in matters political, has by no means remained "in stain guo," but Hint on the
contrary, the Conservative of to-duy, is
ns completely alien in thought and sympathy from the Tory of twenty-live or
thirty years ago as the so-called Liberal
of to-day, is from the eminently respectable whig uf our father's time. The day
has gone by—wc hope never to return-
when one of the great political divisions
was ready to stand by—and if need were
—to light for, tin- achievements and traditions of the past, holding that whatever was, must necessarily be good.
To-day, we hope and believe, tbat both
ol tbe great parties aim al the abolition
of abuses when proved to he BUcb, and
also to aim at effecting, though by apparently different methods, what Mr.
Gi.AUSTii.M-: has defined as the highest
duty of the statesman (as opposed lo the
mere politician) "Ibe greatest good to the
greatesl number."

Tin; Saturday Night says: Talking aboul
criminals, Donald Morrison, the Megan-
tic outlaw, though he bad the blood of a
fellow being on bis hands excited a vast
deal of sympathy, and I confess 1 felt
somewhat sorry to see him captured,
particularly whon there is a very considerable suspicion of treachery connected
with it. He held the fort against all comers
and made the squad of Montreal policeman, headed by Judge Dugas, look
wonderfully absurd. lli:; crime was perpetrated in a defence of what lie thought
was right and "square," and though il
did not make il less a crime In- excited
sympathy by bis courage and determination. There i: n note of wonderful
pathos, too, in tlie little incident which
preceded his arrest. He had come home
to his father's bouse and bis old mother
tilled his pockets with bread and put up
a bottle of milk for bim and gave him a
blanket. Reading the story one can't
help seeing the poor old mother who
loved her boy all the more tenderly because be had been outlawed in a struggle
for what he esteemed bis rights. One
can bear her trembling words of caution
and advice, ami imagine tin- touch of
those kindly old hands as she handed
bim her little provision lor his niglit in
the woods. Whal wero tho fugitive's
thoughts as In- sat in the link- kitchen
watching his mother making preparations for bis wants, and how overcome
she must have been when she saw Ihe
policeman carrying away her wounded
son. There is nol ball' as much brutality
in the murder that Morrison committed
and the light thai he made for liberty,
a8 in tbe beating given liy the three
Jarvises to an inoffensive companion, and
1 admire llu- Caledonian and St. Andrew's societies in the Eastern Townships

It has long been n source of surprise to
us that there should lie such an evident

English political telegrams to the press
ol the United States and also of this

excerpts from the great London dailies,
th* general tenor of which, we assert, is
to mislead the public oi this country and
also ol the States as to the real opinions
of the English press with regard to tlio
ever present IriBh question. We would
not be understood to say that Ihe extracts

THE POTTER'S SECRET.
Toward tbe middle of the Third century,
the oity of Liusannum In Arvernio had nut
the calm and modest aspect of Lozoux, tho
little town which is tho chief place of the can-
tun of Auvergne, located upon the saino site.
Liusaunum was a vast industrial town, an
Important center, where tho manufacture of
pottery occupied a multitude of workmon and
enriched numerous families, proud to sign
their names to the works issuing from their
establishments.
Since the Roman occupation, many veritable artists in designing, coming from all
countries, had established themselves nbout
the old Gallic potteries iu this region, where
the finest ceramic earth was found iu abundance. A great number came from Home
and tbe other cities of the peninsula; many
were from Oreece, Illyriu, Phoenicia, and
even Judea. Their names, preserved upou
the fragments of their vases, eluurly indicate
their origin, Ellcuus, AsifltieuB, Particus,
Acircis, uxopilluu, Borillus, und a hundred
others vied in imagination to create these
decorutive subjects, these wreaths and ornaments which stand lu relict upon the graceful vases, whose beautiful pink glazing has
resisted uliko the action of humidity and of
time.
Liusaunum then, about tho year 200 uf our
era, presented a very noteworthy aspect. Its
cosmopolitan population offered to the view
a strange mixture of nil sorts of costumes.
All dialects, all accents, all races mingled
Upon thu public squares, in thu shadow of the
temples and under their porticoes, though
the Latin element was dominant. Through
their alliances with the principal Gallic families, the conquerors had succeeded, littlo by
tittle, in spreading their customs and their
beliefs.
Somo rare children of tho soil, pure from
all contact with Rome, full of hatred for tho
invader, nursing still in their hearts a vague
bope of enfranchisement, remained fulthful
to tho creed and tho niauuer of their ancestors. Among these were distinguished, from
father to sou, the descendants of the Arch-
ilruid Diorix, the some who encouraged the
Ion of Celt ill to resist Ciesur. This numerous family, thanks to its pride, its virtues,
and, perhaps, to its wealth, had finally
achieved tho respect of the conquerors them-
tolves; and, notwithstanding their declared
attitude against the Roman influence uud
thoir refusal of tho highest dignities, the propraetors of Augusto-Nemetum had always
protected tbem against the zeal of their lieutenants. "One must know how to wait,1'
laid ono of these able administrators; ''time
and persuasion will finally conquer their
resistance." In effect, time had considerably
diminished the number of representatives of
this opulent family. Since the timo when
the brothers and nephews of the urchdrutd
fell in combat near Vercingctorix, its sons
had fought courageously against the proconsuls of Rome, but, little by little, their
uger bad calmed as their hope vanished, and
for a long time they had contented them-
wIvm with the direction of the most celebrated pottery of Liusaunum, wherein they
produced, with the aid of true artists, works
which wore known and sought for throughput the umpire.
The products of their immense establishment were distinguished by the purity and
harmony of their lines, by the elegance of
|uiet designs wherein the human figure was
rarely represented, and, abovo all, by a rose
polored or greenish glaze of a vitreous and
brilliant luster, tbe secret of which they alone
silently into each other's eyes; then their
looks wandered ovor iho vast panorama
which unrolled itseH nt '.heir feet, between
the gigantic oaks and great whito beeches
whoso branches interlaced above their heads.
Before them, not far from the forest, the outlying potteries showed their red roofs scattered over tho plain. Then tho city, with its
pediments, colonnades and temples, formed
an imposing mass, and the sound of its bustle,
abated toward evening, faintly reached the
hillock. Beyond stretched the immense plain,
covered with trees from among which
emerged, here and thoro, hillocks crowned
with grand monuments. In tho distance,
Augusto-Nemetum, eight Roman miles away,
wus hardly visible through the mist; but
above, the undulating line of tho mountain:',
clear and intensely blue, bordered tho horizon aud stood boldly out uguinst tbe sky, inflamed by tbo fires of the declining sun. In
lhc center, upon the highest cone, a slight
prominence indicated the place of tho celebrated Temple of Mercury Dumiatus, and, ut
one ride, a shining point revealed the presence of the gigantic statue, the marvelous
work of Zenodurus.
"Do vou know what you ask of mo, Lydin:

Tho QaUo-Roman, Phoenician and Greek
potters, their rivals, also made, with rare
talent, the same utensils, with glazing uniformly pink, unalterable, decorated with
various subjects inspired by the Grecian
mythology; but they could not equal the
finish, the transparency, the luster of the
works signed "Diorix," because, in spite of
ill their efforts, tbey had been unable to discover the secret of the incomparable glazing.
Ihis secret was revealed to tho eldest son of
tho family, who made the mixtures himself,
ud who, through a spirit of patriotism
rather than through interest, guarded it
tacredly In spite of the most tempting offers.
Tho father of the last of the Diorix had
laid to bim on his death bed; "I leave you
tbe secret of our fathers engraved upon these
tablets. Preserve it preciously. It is tho
only means left to us of resisting our conquerors. You ore very young, but you will
remember the prediction of our ancestor, the
uvhdruld, who said: 'When the stranger
knows our secret destruction, ruin and annihilation will hang over our heads.'"
Bo Xobert, at 18 years of age, after having
Beard the last wishes of his father, and having
iworn to him to respect them, remained the
wlo heir of the immense riches and sole pos-
 r of the secret of his family.
It was a floe evening toward tbe ond of the
rammer. Upon tha summit of tbo hillock in
tbe neighborhood of Liusaunum, near tbe
rerge of a superb forest, a young man and a
foung girl were seated. Tbo young man,
with his long yellow hair, his blue eyes and
fresh complexion, was a perfect type of those
fierce Gauls who, In olden times, had made
Greece and Rome tremble. The saugum of
rich stuff, tho collar from which hung a large
carbuncle, tbo bracelets of fine gold, all bis
costume proved him a rich and powerful Ar*
voruo. The young girl was beautiful, with
her white robe falling in straight, narrow
folds, covered with the stole of tbe same
color. Brunette without color, her black
bah, fastened with a pink coral pin, marvel-
pusly finished her perfect profile. She was
certainly one of tho prettiest girls of tho
Roman colony.
Watching the two seated on a bank of moss

Victoria, B. C,
April 29th, 1889. 2m
Came from Rome in eurly youth, was one of
tho wealthiest potters of Liusannum. HU
rumptuous houso was adjacent to tho establishment of Diorix, but no intimacy, no Ho
bad ever united the two families. Hai1
Xobert, then, since the death of his father,
forgotten the proud dignity of his ancestors!
How could ho humble himself before one of
the ubhorrod race of tho conquerors?
When Xobert first found himself alono at
the head of his flourishing industry, Lydia,
almost a child, had not yet attracted his notice, but in less than a year tho child was
transformed iuto a woman, swd her sovereign
beauty expanded suddnaly. Xobert occasionally saw her, and beoutic madly en
amored of her. Long did tie struggle against
1 passion which in his eyes was criminal,
long did ho reflect upon the™ example Of his
ancestors, which was tho rule for his conduct,
aut ho was conquered by Lydia1.*) grace,
Bhflrm and beauty.
Ono day, finding hor alone, ho tremblingly
told his love, und she fled from bim. But
shortly afterward either tho young girl felt
tho some attraction toward him, or, perhaps,
her father foresaw fn a possible union a way
of enlarging bis fortune and influence, and,
above all, a means of finally obtaining a
knowledge of tbe envied secret of Diorix, for
the no longer took fright at tho tender and
passionate words of Xobert. She listened:
iho responded; and often they found themselves ulone under thu protecting shades of
the forest where our tulo has found them,
lost iu the splendors of tho horizon emblazoned by tho sun.
All at once Xobert left his contemplation,
uid, turning to Lydia, took hor hand, and
laid;
"It is now moro than a year that I havo
.oved you. It is long since you told mo that
your heart belonged to me, yet my mouth has
aot touched your candid brow, my lips have
not oven grazed tho hem of your virginal
robe. 0, Lydia I is your father Inexorable?
When shall I see tbo thrice happy day of our
Betrothal?"
Lydia, without withdrawing her hand, replied: "When I revealed to my father my
Jeutiments towards you, ho became violently
uigry. He supplicated mo to have no faith
in tho promises of one of tho most ardent enemies of our race. Seeing mo grieved and dis-
lonsnlutc, he was troubled by my tears and
lilence, because I am more dear to him than
my brotbei-s and sisters, I seized tbe moment
lo combat his prejudice against you. For
Jomo time now he has seemed to bo ou tho
X)int of yielding tu my prayers. Only yes-
jerdny, he admitted to mo that ho would bo
willing to havo you enter his family if he
jould bo convinced of your disinterestedness.
Are you certain,' said he, 'of the loyalty
>f this silver tongued young Gaul, of this
proud Arverne whoso ancestors have always
ilsdalned our race, and who keeps for liim-
wlf alone a secret useful to oUf When ho
ihall havo given some conclusive proof of his
love, then, and then only, will I] gladly open
xi him the doors of my dwelling.'"
"But what proof of my love can I give? If
uiy danger menaces you, I will joyfully confront death itself."
"May it please tho gods that destiny shall
never give you the occasion to thus prove
four courage."
"I see well, Lydia, that your father will
aover consent to our union. Ho invents at
pleasure obstacles to retard our happiness,
counting upon timo to rid him of me. Let us
fly together. Lotus go ami live alone together
En tho vast forests; thoro we shall l>o happy
ind free."
"Never; never! My father would dio of
lespair."
And, remembering that Balbuo hud inti-
nuted to her that ho would consent to her
marriage if tho son of Diorix would confide
lis secret to her, she added:
"Listen, Xobert; I have perhaps found the
neans of overcoming his resistance. All
four rivals are jealous of tho products of
four manufactory. My father has often expressed before me his euvy of your secret. If
rou love mo, ought I not to know all your
thoughts? Reveal to mo this impenetrable
jecrot. I can then say to my father: 'I lovo
Jim, and I havo reason to love him, for ho
las given mo a convincing proof of his
>ovo.'"
Xobert's face grew dark. A slight doubt
traversed his mind. But Lydia stood before
bim so earnest, her face expressed so much
loyalty aud frankness, that lie promptly rejected all suspicion. And then, he know she
was ignorant of his oath and tho sinister prediction. But, trembling at the recollection
.if the last words of Diorix, ho replied:
"Demand of mo all that I possess, my
wealth, my goods, my very blood, but do not
•isk me to reveal this secret."
"You do not lovo mo then abovo everything? You will not mako your wife the
■.-oiilldmit of all your thoughts?"
"Lydia, I love you more than all tho world,
but you ask me tho one thing that I cannot
confide to you."
"So, you refuse mo tho sole means of placating my father. You will not respond to
my request?"
"Alasl I cannot;" and tho young Arverne
bung his head in sadness.
"You do not love mo; you have nover loved
me," murmured Lydia, who could not comprehend this refusal; and groat tears rolled
down hor cheeks, Thou, rising suddenly—
"Since it Is so, it is bettor that wo should
separate. Goodby, good by forever!" And,
flying through the trees, sho disnp]>earcd
in the shailows of tho forest.
In acting thus, tho young girl was sincere.
Deeply in love, sho could not comprehend the
obstinate resistance of Xobert, Sho was
hurt; she suffered profoundly, for sho well
knew thut Balbuo would never consent to
their union unless somo great inducement
were offered him.
Xobert stood for a moment as if deprived
of his senses. Soon, however, lifting his
dead mid finding himself alono, he comprehended all tho violence of his love. Instantly
he precipated himself upon the path of the
young girl, calling to her in a heartrending
voice: "Lydia! Lydial" Aa ho come within
light of her she slackened her paco, and, running to her, he folded her in his arms.

whereon is written the secret of the Diorix.
I know that in your hands they will Iaj u-

"No, I cannot have you perjure yourself,
not even to prove to me your love."
"Is it to bo jwrjured to havo with one's
wifb but ono thought, ono sentiment?"
"I supplicate you, keep these tablets sa-
cred."
"No, take them. Our happiness exacts it.''
And, placing thorn in Lydia's hands, he
turned swiftly and strode away. The girl
called him In vain. Then she ran after him.
but he had disappeared tn the shadow of the
night which commenced to veil tho hills of
Liusannum.
******
A month has hardly passed and all is ready
In the mansion of Balbuo for the celebration
of the betrothal of the daughter of the potter and tho lost of tho Diorix.
In effect, Lydia was quickly reassured in
seeing that no obstuclo could further retard
her happiness. Sho hastened to announce
her victory to her father. She showed him
tbo precious tablets, but refused to allow
him to touch thorn, because, as she laughingly said, they were the property of her
husband. Balbuo did not Insist, telling bim
self that from the moment that his daughter
hod the Wblets of the Diorix in her hands
the secret could not long remain unknown.
On his side, Xobert, dominated by his love,
hud easily stifled his remorse. Welcomed as
a son by his rich neighbor, solitude no Ir uger
saddened his life. He had found in the bouse
of Balbuo a new family. Happy, ho said
that his race had glvou emperors to tho Roman world and there were no longer oppressors nor oppressed.
Tho day has come for the betrothal banquet. The faotory of Balbuo holds festival.
The workmen and the slaves have quitted the
shops and tbe furnaces. Assembled in thu
vast courte beneath the venerable oaks, some
drink tho wine of tho country, others slug
aud dance upon the green.
In the spacious ball, with Its marble walls
and mosaic pavement, a circular tablo is surrounded by the companions of Balbuo. Most
of them wear the toga of white wool, bordered with purple; others aro covered with
the Greek pallium embroidered with gold.
Somo Arvernes still preserve their national
costume. Among them Xobert is distinguished by the brilliancy of his garments and
the richness of bis bracelets and collars. Tbo
women wear the pepluni or tho stole, secured
at the shoulder by clasps of gold. Among
them Lydia is remarkable for tho simplicity
of her robe of woven wool, fastened at one
shoulder by a simple clasp, after tho manner
of the Gauls. The delicate attention has not
escaped Xobert's notice.
The table is pompously served. The meats
smoke In silver dishes, by the side of rose
huod vases ornamented with figures, containing multicolored apples and ruddy bunches
of grapes. Tho flagons of iridescent glass,
tho amphoras, filled with Falerninu uud Mus-
sique, sparkle near the two handled bowls
which contain the fermented liquors. Tho
autumn sun flashes across this mass of vessels, of precious vases, lingers about the
colonnades of pink marble, and throws a ray
upon the smiling mouth of the bronzo Mercury upright upon a tripod of gold.
Meanwhile the father of the family, to do
honor to his future son-in-law, filled, following tho custom of the Gauls, a largo cup with
wine of Setia, put it to his lips, and passed it
to his neighbor, saying: "May this beverage
preserve your health." Tho cup circulated
from hand to hand around the table, and the
feast soon was at its height.
A slight uneasiness at times, howevor, moderated the hilarious /)> of the revelers. It
was when they spoke of the rapid march of
the men of the north, who had invaded Gaul
under command of Chrock, thoir king. Tbe
last couriers had reported them as moving
toward Lyons. Might they not then invade
the country of the Bituriges, and even venture
as far as Arvernie? But it was thought probable that they would descend toward the
south by the country of the Allobroges. This
last opinion, more reassuring, obtained general assent, and the repast went on joyously.
As the feast was about to terminate Lydia,
pale with emotion, approached Xobert, a
cup iu her hand. She presented it to him,
saying: "You oro my husband and my master,
and I am your faithful servant." The young
Arverno took the cup, half emptied it, aud
returned it to Lydia. Tho girl carried it to
her lips, hut she trembled so that she let it
fall, and the cup, with its beautiful rose glaze,
was broken upon tho mosaic pavement.
Many of tho guests considered this incident
08 of evil omen, but the emotion passed off
aud the feast was ended to tho sound of tbo
tibia aud tho Phrygian flute.
Xobert and Lydia wore betrothed according to tho rites and customs of Arvernie.
Their marriage was to be celebrated a few
days later, following tho prescriptions of the
Roman law,
The day following this joyous feast, the
two lovers walked together iu the neighboring forest. Thoy exchanged soft words and
tender looks, and formed a thousand projects.
Meanwhile, thu watchers, signaling from
hill to hill, had given notice of the appearance, at a great, distance, of some bauds of
Germans. The news ran through tho city,
but with the carelessness of youth, tho lovers
believed themselves sheltered from all danger,
and nothing troubled their serenity.
They had arrived ut tho glade whero they
had exchanged their first vows. Lydia recalled that it wus also the place whero the
power of her charms had triumphed over
Xobert, und bad won from him his secret.
Sho wished to seat herself upon tho mossy
bank which had beon witness of their pledges.
Tho sun was disappearing below the horizon.
The shades of tho forest had a serene, almost
sad aspect. The immense plain stretched
Itself away to tho foot of the sinuous line of
tho blue mountains. Suddenly a somber and
cold tint replaced the vanishing rays, and
night had fallen.
Their gaze turned at the same moment in
tb* direction of Augusto-Nemetum. They
sa nr some light clouds of smoke forming over
tlio city. They thought it was only the
autumn mist, which sometimes covered all
0 horizon, but the smoko became blnckej
id mOro dense, and great Qames » .■;..■: i it,

antral cono, where stood tho temple Df Mer
ury, appeared to be ou lire, and tongues ol '
dame shot up against the sky as if .. volcano
had suddenly burst into eruption.
Then only, they began to think of tho warn
ings of the watchers, and their hands met in
mutual terror. Then only, Xobert remembered his oath and his perjury.
"O Lydia!" he cried, "the predictions of
the Diorix are about to be fulfilled. However, it was not betraying my promise to con-
One my secret to her who will be my well beloved spouse. Have you kept the precious
tablets, or have you given tbem to your j
fatherF
"I am much to be blamed," replied Lydia.
"The tablets wero in my chamber, where no i
one penetrates, locked in, a coffer of which 1 j
alone have the key. Each day 1 look at them, ;
as I think of you.   Yesterday morning tbey
had disappeared, and today I found them
again in their accustomed place.   Another
has perhaps read tbe fatal secret,   it is I who
am the cause of the evil which menaces us.
It is ujwu my bead thut tho thunder of Tarann
should fall."
"You divine bead is dearer to me than life
or glory. Do not distress yourself, you uro
not in tho least culpable. And see, the fire
seems to abate. It is probably only dry
weeds burning over there on the mountains,
as at tho festival of the Luperca. Let us go
home and dream of nothing but our happiness."
And, trying to roassuro her, albeit not
without fear himself, ho conducted his betrothed to the house of Balbuo, Then, having ascertained that nothing iu tho environs
revealed the presence of the enemy, ho re*
turned to his own dwelling.

A numerous band of Germans, while their
chief burned Augusto-Nemetum and the
temple of Mercury Dumiatus, turned toward
the plain. Haviug heard boastsof the wealth
of LiuKummm, they crossed the Allier, uud,
under cover of the night, surprised the sleep
ing city.
Xobert was awakened by a great tumult.
He ascended the terrace of his house, and
saw with horror tho flames devouring the
great city. Without delay he donned his
war costume, seized his two edged ax, and
hastened toward the dwelling of Balbuo.
Tho place is already invaded by a troop of
barbarians. He easily clears u passage for
himself and reaches tho vestibule. There he
encounters a frightful spectacle, Balbuo and
bis sons are gory corpses. Lydia, almost
nude, struggles in the midst of
tho soldiers, who aro disputing over
their prey. With uplifted ax, Xobert
falls upon them. Many he stretches at hi*
feet, tho rest fly. Lydia, half dead, throws
herself into his anna j ho presses her to his
heart. Ho thinks to fieo with her, but he
hears the ferocious cries of the conquerors,
who surround the house. The light buildings
of the pottery are already consumed, aud the
fire gains the principal edifice. There is no
means of escape.
"I have violated my oath," cried Xobert,
"Tho arehdruld's prediction Ls fulfilled, but
I dio happy, since I die with you. 0 Lydia!
my wife, I love you I" and for the lost timo
his lips fervently press tbo lips of his betrothed.
At this instant a cloud of smoke envelops
them. Lydia utters a cry of horror, mid they
disappear in the flumes.
Thus wero annihilated tho temple of Mercury, whoso ruins havo since been partially
uncovered on the summit of tho Puy-de-Dome,
and tho town of Liusannum, with numerous
and wealthy cities. Thus wore forever lost,
not only the secret of the Diorix, but also the
process of tbe marvelous glazing of tho Gallo-
Roman potters, which is vainly sought for
today. Such is tho opinion of the wise Dr.
Plicquo, who has rocently found upon a fragment of pottery tho auciont name of tho
town of Lezoux, and whoso curious memoirs
upon ceramics havo thrown much light upon
tho obscuro history of Arvernie in tho Third
century.—Translated for The Argonaut from
the French of Gabriel Marc by T. F. Robertson,
Trade Controlled by Foreigners.
People who are unable to leave New York
can see tho process of gathering tho trade of
tho country Into the hands of foreigners going on under their eyes. Merchants who ore
still in business in New York can remember
when the commerce and trade of the town
wore absolutely controlled by Americans,
and when almost all the signs which hung
above shop doors bore the names of English
speaking people. How is it now? Rfdodowu
Broadway in a street oar and look at the
beautiful buildings which line that thoroughfare. The stores are large and tilled with
cost'v goods, but fully one hulf of these
stores are owned by foreigners. If the sign
of an old American firm is removed it is almost invariably replaced by one bearing a
name which terminates in "shine" or "berg"
or "baum" or "wold" or "child." Other
streets in Now York are almost wholly given
over to foreigners. The American importers
of dry goods havo boon virtually driven out
of tho business. As they disappear, firms
composed of well dressed and highly intelligent Jews tako thoir places or sturdy Germans hoist signs bearing their names above
the doors and prosper where Americans
failed.—Frank Wilkoson in New York Times.

when, if there wore no play, the engine

Sirs We embrace this opportunity of con*'
gratulating van upon the wide-spread repu*
tat ion this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J. j
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only 111 Hindustan, but all over'
the East. As a remedy nf general utility,
we much question whether a better is im-
ported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to tha | [™
native bazaars, ami judging from their sale!
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We Could multiply instances [ *°'lti ■

Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in DiarrnoB,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a* general Sedative, that bave 1 xcitrred

years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used .ny other form "f this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the proj
fession and the public, as we ire ofthe
opinion tnat tbe substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE

Nuisance Inspector Wanted.
Nanaimo has great need of an Inspector of NuisanceB. His lirat duty should
be to get rid of the Salvation Army with
its horrible noise ami din, and having
done that he would not have to go far
before his olfactory nerves would direct
him to others more menacing to public
health.
Editor Couatnit:—A stranger in your
town I have felt rather disinclined to
air my hobby of newspaper writing before your readers, bul tlie subject on
which 1 am aliout so speak fully warrants
my presumption. 1 only hope yon will
pardon me for adding my feeble protest
to what must be so apparent to yourself
and your readers.
I allude principally to the manner in
which one side ol your main streel is constructed, which subject 1 take it you
know to be an uusavorv one from more
than one standpoint. For a progressive
body of citizens such a.-! those nf Nanainio
are'behl to be by the neighboring settlements, to submit tamely to a constant
filtering up of filth and disease at their
very doors is nothing less than a standing disgrace. Even acknowledging the
fact that the rebuilding of half your settlement is a matter of impossibility there
are many other ways of abating the
nuisance, and in a great degree exterminating a constat! menace to your
population.
For the sake of argument lei u-i suppose that an epidemic, of even small proportions, were to appear in your liiidsl.
What, I would like to ask, would your
health oflleers and local authorities do to
quell il? What, could tbey do when
they bave been fostering for years a
gigantic aid to any disease thai might appear, nnd how can they hope with one
hand to eradicate in a week a heap of
unalloyed filth and decomposition thai
they have lieen piling up with the other
[or twenty years'.' Tlie argument tbat
an epidemic never comes here is idiotic.
The contention that nothing can be done
is a falsehood, and the certainty thai the
present state of affairs is existing only
through the culpable negligence of the
authorities and the apathv of your residents is a plain undeniable fact.
I make no practical suggestions. That
may well be left to your readers, hut if
what 1 hear ia true, and ii no notice has
been taken of the constant demands and
even pleading- of your journal in this
matter, then the men responsible for it
deserve to be pilloried. The long nnd
short of the matter is that the magnificent natural situation that ibe Almighty
has given you tbey have done Iheir best
to counterbalance by making Nauaimo a
place not fit to live in. If your people
arc content to live under such conditions
I siucerelv pity them.
Your inability to hammer into the
heads of those who ought to lead the
movement of reform in this direction
anything like a reasonable thought on, ,,      ,
the question places their   ideas of what | Opposite E. & N. B. ".Depot.
vonr journal should be liko on a par wltb .nun,
what the Irishmen once imagined about
a member of parliament. The latter bad
been elected by a Minister constituency,
ami had returned to bis home for a trip
after making bis maiden speech, lie
was interviewed when he got home by
an indignant body of his constituents,
the leader of whom saitl: "Look here,
Mister, we didn't send you to Parliament
to talk.    What   we   wanl   from   you   is
silence-ami d d little of thai."
Yours faithfully,
Obsebvek.
