listened to the cry, and she soon found
herself the dumping ground for the

An unusually successful entertainment
was hold in Coquitlam School house on
Thursday evening in aid of the library
fund of the Union Sunday School. The
people of the vicinity took the matter in
hand with a vim that insured success
from the start, and spared neither trouble
nor money to provide an entertaimeiit
that will long be remembered by those
who participated in it. Tho ladies provided a most elaborate spread, and indeed, nothing was lacking that could add
to the enjoyment of the evening. The
school room was crowded to its utmost
capacity, anil the porch supplied Standing room for Into comers. A handsome
sum was realized for the library fund,
Mr. ll. D. Irvine, Superintendent of
ths school, organized tlie entertainment
by moving Mr. U. li. Kelly, Reeve of
Coquitlam, to the chair. He expressed his
pleasure at the happy unity displayed
by all the friends who  had  so  heartily
joined in making the entertainment a success, and at the same time congratulated
them on what that unity had accomplished as evidenced by the full house
before him. As Superintendent he was
delighted with the assistance so freely
rendered. Ho would now make way
for Mr. Kelly, and he was bound to say
he felt tho meeting was fortunate In having so capable a gentleman to preside.
Mr. Kelly, on taking the chair, expressed the pleasure it gave him to welcome so large an attendance on this
festive occasion, the lirst of its kind hold
in tho place, and which he hoped and
expected would be the pioneer of many
more to follow. When he looked around
upon so many smiling faces, it demonstrated to bim that here too progress was
being made in the advance of civilization,
Only a few years ago, this place, where
they were to-night enjoying themselves,
Was a dense wilderness. It only seemed
a little while since he used to' come to
the Coquitlam to see his best Iglrl, and
they could walk round by the ho\ir without any roving settler to spoil good company. Now the woods was full of them.
It was certainly gratifying to see so
manp happy families building up comfortable homes where so short a time ago
nothing was heard but the whoop of the
red man as he chased the bear or deer
along the banks of the limpid Coquitlam.
He was pleased to know that this first
entertainment was to be a success financially. He hoped tho committee to purchase books would bo careful in the
selection of them, for he had a sort of
recollection that the Sunday book when
he used to go to Sunday school (that was
somo time ago) always ended one way���
the good bov or girl died Now, he would
suggest that in the Coquitlam library,
the good boy be given a fair chance, so
as to encourage the children in the way
of righteousness. Another thing that
occurred to him was that this being the
lirst entertainment of the kind, and
many of those taking part in it wero
making their first appearance before an
audience, it would not be right to expect
too much this time, although he was sure
Coquitlam could boast its full share of
talent, and would yet be heard from in
the Province at large. He would not
detain them any longer, for the programme was a long one, and he would
proceed witli it at once by calling for the
opening song.
After the vigorous applause had subsided, the programme was proceeded
with as follows:

style, and caused a smile by a witty
reference to tlie gentleman who wasn't
Hie man in  tlie moon.
"A Lesson on Elocution." This was a
dialogue by Nellie Scott and Lyn Irvine,
Pat Talhoiise. and Thos. Kelly, and was
a creditable performance, making lots
of fun for the company.
Mr. Robinson sang a Danish song,
which was well received.
A recitation by Mr. Atkins, "Inch

and very much admired.

good thing, even though It came with an
unpromising label.
"The Light of Other Days,"  was a
song by Mr. Hogg, and was nicely done.
A   recitation   by   Councillor   Fox,  of
I which we have not got the  title, was
splendidly rendered,  and   the  magnifi-
| cence  of   the   composition    admirably
; brought ont.
Miss Peters, in the song "Robin Adair,"
I captivated the audience, and was ltsten-
I to with wrapt attention.

strains bad n noticeable effect upon the
1 listeners.

Murray, and was well executed,

who Ran away," and told it admirably.
He received a hearty round of applause.
Tliis finished tne numbers, and notwithstanding the unusual length of the
programme, the large audience followed
the various performers from first to last
with unabated interest. A vote of thanks
to the ladies for their generous assistance, and a like vote to Mr. Kelly for
the happy manner in which he had presided, brought the entertainment to a
close without a hitch, and the large
assemblage departed to their homos more
than pleased with the treat they had
partaken of.

~Xhe Charterers attempt to Thresh the Cap- .
tain of the steamer T. W. Carter.
The little steamer T. W. Carter.owned |
fin  Victoria, is  now  lying   at Nawhitti
���disabled and  having on board Messrs.
3Iuir and Welsh, of Victoria, who chartered her for a  northern trip.     It ap-
rpears that tho little steamer unshipped
tner rudder, and that while drifting holp-
fessly she was  picked up by the U.S.S.
IMoehican and towed into Nawhitti. After
ithe Mochlcan left them  the charterers
���wanted Capt. Bealo, a Vancouver man,
tto  continue the   voyage.    He  said   it
���would be folly to attempt to do so without a proper rudder and that ho would
mot dare make tho attempt, as it would
(be risking their lives as well as the vessel.    The   charterers  wore determined
rthat there should be no delay and proceeded to give tho captain a walloping
dii   order to bring   him   round to their
way of thinking.   The engineer, Geordie
./Allan, who also belongs in Vancouver,
iheard the row and got out of his berth

The World's Coal Supply.
The keennest of the irony of the
phrase "taking coal to Newcastle" has
long beon blunted. During the present
strike large quantities have been taken
to that port from different parts of the
continent. Half a century ago it was
undoubtedly true that the largest quau-
tity of the world's coal supply came from
the North of England, but now the black
diamond Is not only to be got in all
quarters of the globe, but in many parts
of the United Kingdom as well. Hence
tho principal reason for tho apparent
weakness of the great miners' strike,
which, instead of benefiting the men,
has given additional profit to tho owners,
who havo worked off their surplus stock
at enhanced prices and now have put up
the figures permanently, five shillings a
ton without paying the operators one
cent moro than they received before they
started on a course that has only respited iii misery and debt for themselves
and their families. A coal strike to
he successful must be universal. Thus
then tho end of the present movement,
even when the nien shall have returned
to work, may not have been reached yot,
for it may lead to a miners' federation
throughout tho world, the principal object of which will be the preventing of
shipments of coal to districts or countries where a strike is in progress. Local
unionism must prevail.
As showing tlie weakness of the striking miners In England it is noteworthy !
that whereas iu the first decade of the
present century the north of England
supplied half the world with coal, at the
present date there is as much coal raised j
in the single Province of Westphalia as
in the great producing counties of Durham and Northumberland united. In
Bohemia, too, new fields are being upon-.
t eil out. while in the United States, Nova
(Scotia, the North West Territories, Vancouver Island, all along the coast of
Japan, In the Malay Peninsula, in Africa
as well as In other parts of the world,
coal abounds in large quantities and of
excellent quality, if, therefore, tho
miners calculate on producing an Impression because of the supposed scarcity
of fuel throughout the world, they
labored under a grave delusion.
India presents a remarkable example
of tho manner In which foreign countries are yearly becoming more and moro
independent of English coal. A short
time ago England's Eastern dependency
relied entirely upon the Mother country
for its fuel���apart from the large quantities of junglewood consumed 'for that
purpose. But tlie locomotives aro now
driven by the mills and factories largely
workod by native coal, and overy month
the output from the Indian mines is increasing. During the last official year
tho imports of coal from England were
only 648,000, as against 738,000 tons in
the previous twelve months, while the
last figures were also considerably below
those of 1890-91. English coal has been
practically driven out of Bengal���the imports into that Presidency for 1892-3 being not more than 12,000 tons. Were it
not for the high cost ol carriage, it is
more than probable that coal from tho
Bengalese pits would drive the English
produce out of the market at Bombay
and other important centres of consumption. Last year 2,537,696 tons were raised from the mines iu India, and of this
over 2,000,000 tons were worked in Ben-
gan, but these figures do not by any
means represent productive capacity of
the 88 mines already working in the
PcHinsult, or are the possible supplies
limited to the coal fields now open. In
South Africa, also, there exists a series
of practically inexhaustible coal beds
from which excellent fuel is obtained.
Native labor in both countries is very
cheap, and, when difficulties of transit
from the interior have been overcome by
a further developement of the railway
system, it is not unlikely that the African and the Indian coal mines may enter into seriously active competitive competition with England in the markets of
the world���Toronto "World."

says: On Tuesday, 3rd inst., my brother

before they encountered a storm, and
shortly after their rudder was carried
away. A sea swamped the boat, the
two men being washed some distance
from it, but luckily they were swimmers,
and succeeded in regaining the boat.
They clung for several hours to her keel,
with the hope of being washed ashore.
Wilson was the lirst to suffer from exhaustion, and after holding on for three
hours his grip relaxed and he sank before the eyes of his horrified companion,
who was powerless to kelp blm. It was
probably two hours after Wilson sank
when my brother felt bottom, the boat
having drifted to Jedediah Island. After
crawling a little distance lie lost consciousness, which he did not regain until
the next day, when the tide returning
woke him up. His hands are even now

The oldest dress in the world is probably that described by a French traveler
in Japan. It belonged to an Empress of
Japan who lived in tbe thirteenth century, and It has been kept all these
centuries in a temple near Yokohama,
where the priest sometimes exhibit it for
a sufficient reward. It is kept in an old
coffer covered with white silk. The robe,
or robes, for there are several of them,
are described as a diaphanous mess,
crumbling at the edges with decay. The
material is a crepe, or some filmy stuff,
aud tho effect must be like that worn by
Loie Fuller. It is made with a long train,
pagoda sleeves, and a high collar like
Medici.s ruff. The upper layer was once
white, and is now the color of ivory, embroidered with Hying birds the size of
crows, with dragons' heads green, blue
and violet. Then come several layers of
the silk muslin, yellow, bine, violet, old
gold and green, on which seem scattored
strange animals all in tight. The seventh,
which touches tho body of the long dead
empress, Is violet, embroidered witli figures like phantoms. The embroidery on
this wonderful robe is said to be as transparent as the gauze. The effect of the
whole is smoke colored.
Trouble for tlladstone,
London, Oct. 10.���Tho Oladstonian
ministry is likely to be face to face witn
a political crisis Immediately upon the
reassembling of Parliament, A largo
number of Liberal and Radical members
of tho House of Commons havo agreed
to supporta resolution condemning Home
Secretary Asqulth for his action in permitting a largo number of police officers
from London to bo sent to Yorkshire,
Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire where
the strikes of the coal miners are iu progress, to direct and assist the local force
there. The Government is also to bo
attacked for tho shooting down of striking minors by the military at Feather-
stone a few weeks ago.
It has not yet been decided whethei
the resolution will take the form of a
vote of want of con Hdence, but it is believed the Unionists and a large number of
the members on the Tory side of the
House will support whatever resolution
may be presented, if only for the purpose of embarrassing the Government.
Some idea of tbo prevalent state of
feeling can be gathered from an interview a fews days ago with Samuel Woods,
a member of the Liberal party in the
House of Commons, and hitherto a
staunch supporter of Mr. Gladstone and
his policy. This is what he said: "The
shooting of innocent strikers by the
military was the foulest attack ever
m3de on the workingmen in the history
of this country. It was a diabolical
thing that a body of men who already
had suffered keenly should be fired upon
by soldiers without provocation. I shall
be surprised and insulted if the magistrate who read the riot act is not arrested
and tried for wilful murder. The matter
will be brought before Parliament
immediately upon the opening of the
autumn session, and if the Liberal Government does not defend the conduct of
innocent men, whose lives have been
sacrificed, then I for one will say, "Turn
them out.'"
Hundreds of trades councils and other
representative labor organizations thro-
ugnout the country have adopted resolutions condemning tho shooting of the
miners, while the various Socialist
societies are adopting and signing petitions to tho House of Commons demanding the condemnation of the "capitalist
and murderous Liberal Government for
having sent soldiers to shoot down workingmen engaged iu a righteous struggle
against the intolerable oppression of

She.   is   Grounded,    at   Honolulu   Harbor'
The steamship Australia, which landed In San Francisco on Wednesday morning, from Honolulu, gives the following
in reforenco to the Miowcra, which is
long past due on her return trip from
The Miowera was stranded at tbe entrance of Honolulu harbor, on the evening of October 2nd. All efforts to get
her off have failed. She has worked up
the reef, and lies In 11 feet of water, but
has no hole through the bottom. Passengers and mails were forwarded per
the Australia. Her approach ten miles
out off Diamond Head was telegraphed,
and Pilot Lorenzen started out from the
shore to meet her. While he was hang-
ng out lanterns upon the. buoys to guide
him in with the ship, she entered tbe
passage and ran ashore just Inside the
outer buoy on the west of the channel.
Boarding her at once he found her lying
parallel with the channel, in from 15 to
17 feet of water, the tide being full.
Steam was got up on the Government
tug Ellen, and she commenced tugging
astern on tbe Miowera, aided by the
ship's crow. No material effect was produced. Ministers King and Smith boarded the ship at mid-night. King, an experienced and able pilot, advised Capt.
Stott, and jettisoning coal was commenced witli the ship's crew only. No
anchors were laid out that night. During the hiu'h tide on tlie morning of tlie
ilrd the steamers Ellen, Makoo and
Claudlne made united efforts to pull oil'
the ship, with no result except the parting of hawsers; BOO tons of coal had gone
overboard. The ship having only two
anchors out. worked around and further
westward up the reef by the force of the
swell. The tugging astern was renewed
by tho steamers at high tide toward midnight.
At 2 a.m., on the 4th, the outer stern
post of the Miowera was torn away,
which put an end to the pulling. The
rudder fell into tho sea. This ended all
possibil'ty of tho ship proceeding, and
passengers and mall were landed next
morning. Passengers were quartered by
the ship's agents at different hotels in
the city.
Messrs. T. II. Davies & Co., tho agents,
on the 4th and 5th, made every effort to
charter one of the only available steamers, the Claudine and the Aikokee, to
convey passengers and mails direct to
Vancouver. No terms were offered by
those ships which the agents could accept, and on the arrival of the Australia
on the 7th she was induced to leave three
days earlier than schedule time, aud
carry forward the mails and passengers
to San Francisco. On the4th the Alkoku
Mam, a largo Japaneese steamer, was
added to tlie previous tugging force,
the Hawaii taking the place of the Ma-
kce. Tho pulling was still astern and to
the westward. Lightening of the ship
had gone on, but from iiisuffieent anchoring, resulted only in the swell working her up into a worse position, about
400 feet west of her original one, and
nearly parallel with the shore, with her
bows in only 11 feet of water at low tide.
The Ellen fouled her smokestack early in
the day, in theClaudine's hawser and had
retired lion de combat. On tlie oth, Admiral
Skerrett, at H. B. M. Minister Wode-
house's request, sent out the U. S.

The Miowera had now worked her

number of heavy anchors bad been conveyed from the shore, and laid out so as
to moor the Miowera strongly, and prevent her from working farther up the

There is a rather common, but erroneous notion, to the ctlect that a human
body, or even a ship, will not sink to the
bottom of the profounder abysses of the
ocean, but will, on account of tbo density of the waters at a great depth, remain suspended at somo distance above,
tlie surface of the earth. This Is an
error, says Prof. N. S. Shaler, in Scrlb-
tit's Mug-Joe. No other fate awaits the

The editor of this paper lias on two
occasions boon present when the Premier
of this Province was banqueted in token
of tho political appreciation of thoso by
whom the arrangements were made.
The first occasion was at Chilliwack,
when a number of prominent people of
that district, Including the chief officers
of the Chilliwack Agricultural .Society,
made a break, as one might say, and
contrary to a generally accepted idea
that the Government hacTfew friends in
that district, and in the face of a fairly
strong and aggressive body Opposition ratepayers, organized a public reception of
the Premier to show him that he was
not without support, and well qualified
support, in tbat prosperous valley... The
banquet was an undoubted victory for
the Government party, and has since
been followed up with other action in
the same direction that leaves no room
for doubt as to the import of Mr. Davie's
reception. Tlie Government party is tho
strong party in Chilliwack town to-day.
That is a clear case. In the surrounding farming district it may he different,
but it is equally certain that there too
the Mainland Opposition is being shorn
of its strength, and that when another
election is called Mr. Kitchen, M.
P.P., will have a heavy contract
to hold his position. It is quitj senseless for the Opposition press to argue that
tho Chilliwack banquet was nojmore than
an ordinary token of respect to a gentleman holding high office. It was a deliberately planned ai:d carried out demonstration of friendship to Mr. Davio
and his colleagues. The address presented to the Premier at .Surrey was
different. It was unpremeditated, and
contained the signatures, without prejudice, of meu who are not now in
thorough sympathy with Mr. Davies'
On Wodnesday last, at Ladners, there
was again a straight political demonstration in favor of tho Ministerial party.
It took the form of a banquet to the
Premier, and was attended by the
principal people of tlie district. A
full report of the proceedings will
be found in another column. Unlike
at Chllliwhack, there was on tills occasion no implied restraint upon thu speakers touching controversial politics. They
expressed themselves as freely as ii
pleased them, and tho whole tenor of
opinion inside and outside the banqueting room was unmistakably favorable to
the Government party,
The speech delivered by Premier Davie
is one of great Importance, and outlines
a policy that must meet the approval of
every struggling settler Iu the Province.
Wo commend Its careful perusal to our
readers, for they will there find much
that concerns them.
Slnco our last issue tho catch of good,
healthy salmon iu the Fraser Rivor has
greatly fallen away, aud the fishing season has practically ended. Tho river Is
full of exhausted fish, returning to tho
sea from the various spawning grounds
of tho inland waters. Salmon that passed up a few months ago bright, vigorous,
and in prime food condition, are now
wearily pursuing tho return journey,
discolored, and totally unfit for food purposes. Fishermen, seeking cohoes and
other seasonable fish, daily net numbers
of the debilitated sockeyes, entailing
much trouble on tho men, and working
great and utterly useless injury upon
the most valuable variety of salmon that
swims the Fraser. Almost all the fishermen have a realizing senso of the damage to their own permanent interests from
this wantdn destruction of sick fish, and
it might be that a season of protection
for the returning sockeyes would prove
a wiso measure, and would not be objected to by tho parties most directly
The reader will understand that the
writer of this article pretends to no authority in speaking uf fishing Interests
proper, aim the foregoing suggestion was
but put forth at second-band from tlie
expressed opinions nf practical mon.
The Object primarily had In view In this
essay, is of somewhat different complexion, and touches  the   wider interests of
labor and capital. The protection of the ���-^_^^^_^^^^_,^_^^_^^^__

from the management of the Winnipeg
Free Press Is causing general Interest
throughout Manitoba and tlie territories.
Public sympathy Is unmistakably with
Mr. Luxtoii, and the odds are that the
Free Press directors, In choosing a new
manager, will ruin their property. The
average resident of the Prairie Province
considers It his privilege and his duty to
contend against the C.P.R. company,and
tho suspicion that that body Is at the
bottom of Mr. LuXton'S dismissal Is quite
Sufficient to assure the late Free Press
editor of a general support should lie
choose to enter the field with a new journal. The disclaimer of Mr. Van Home
will count for nothing. The matter of
funds will hardly stand in   the way, as
to place the product on the markets of
tlie world with enough success to warrant repeating the operation again and
again, while inspiring a courage to roach
after profitable details now utterly neglected and wasted.
Having in view, then, both Interests,
and looking to tlie inclination manifested on the river this summer, to force a
fish prico upon tlie canners, what can
be done to correct the evil of competition
by foreigners that fishermen of tho Provlnco so justly complain of. Tho theory
that every British subject who wished a
license should receive one, lias been put
to tho test and found deplorably wanting, ft was a losing game for those who
advocated It. Now, what is thero to
offer as a remedy that will not bo likely
to run to the other extreme of acting as
ment expenditure. The municipality of
Surrey is of age. It is in possession of
full powers to collect money from its
territory for its reasonable needs, and
one of these is tlie repair of important
highways. The whole resources of
Surrey aro at the disposal of the Council, excepting only the poll tax and personal property tax, and those together
do not amount to more than a fraction
of the cost to tho Government of maintaining tho Surrey Schools. The idea of
a full grown municipality sitting with
its hands in its lap waiting !or a paternal Government to remedy a hole In
tlie chief highway, did not present itself
to our dull imagination, until the brilliant suggestion of the Columbian stimulated its sluggishness, ^^^^^^^^^^
spend more on roads and less on law, the
and Justly so, judging by this tasty exhibit. There was a fair display of plants
and flowers, and a moderate oxhlblt of
fine arts. In ladies' work there was
abundant variety, and many beautiful
articles, but the exhibit was perhaps
hardly as complete as in somo other localities.
This completes a hasty sketch of the
various classes of products, etc., on exhibition, and will give readers elsewhere
some idea of the. show at Ladners,
though a personal inspection of the
articles on exhibit as a whole would be
necessary to givo ono the sense of general
excellency which appeared to prevail
amongst visitors.
While the reporter was making his
rounds of inspection, the judgos in the
various divisions were hard at work performing the duties of their ollice. About
two o'clock everything was in order for
opening the exhibition to the public, and
the worthy President of the Delta Agricultural Society, Mr. J. A. Patterson,
in a few neat and appropriate remarks,
introduced to the largo concourse of
people who had gathered, the speaker
of the day, Hon. J. If. Turner, Minister
of Finance and Agriculture, who was
present by invitation to deliver the opening address. The lion, gentleman advanced upon the platform and closely

utilize to the advantage of mankind the
enormous supplies of food lish now an-
ually going to'waste in all the streams of
the coast district of British Columbia.
The point to be touched upon here is
whether the existing method of regulating the licences is to be commended, having in view the experiences of the past season ? That question may be best answered by tlie propounding of another,
namely: Is it good for money to go out
of the country that may be easily kept
at home? This paper takes straight
ground in the negative. It, is not good.
The desirability of retaining among our
own people all that is possible of the
proceeds of the country's resources, is
equivalent to a duty. Last month, Immediately following the closing down uf the
canneries, whole car-loads of American
fishermen gathered their belongings together and took passage for their various homes, carrying in their pockets the
substantial proceeds of a profitable sea-
sou's fishing operations on the Fraser.
These men were just sullicienty British
subjects to be permitted to share with
our own people tho large profits of a good
salmon run, and that accomplished they
were promptly American citizens for tlie
spending of it. Of course, no one can
blame tho men. Thev had a chance to
make money, and they availed themselves of it, and tlie fault is not with
them. They conformed to the fishing
requirements, and may now enjoy their
earnings as best pleases them. But it is
a clear case, that if the present regulations are permitted to continue, British
Columbia fishermen will have to suffer,
and a great natural wealth resource,
that should be a fund of prosperity for
tho homes of this Province, will speedily
develope into a means of wealth
for capital on the one hand, and
a stamping ground for needy foreigners on the other To let things go
on developing iu tho direction they now
are would be but trilling with the good
gifts of Providence, To be sure tlie
fishermen are themselves to blame for
the present pass of affairs in what concerns them. The demand for the grant-
lug of a license to any British subject
who sought it, opened the door to all
people who chose to enter. A provision
intended for a check o:i the canneries
overreached its mark, and reacted in a
very unpleasant manner upon those who
recommended it. But because a veritable
evil was asked for and granted, tho fact
In no way obligates the continuance of
the evil, and It looks like a plain duty on
tho part of all concorned to sot to *ork
to rectify the disadvantages our fishermen now labor under, oven though Induced by themselves.
So far our remarks bear In the Interests
voters of the Province.
"it is an ill-wind," they say, "that
blows nobody good," and if that definition is accepted, it In some small measure takes from under the cloud tho recent financial storm which so ruthlessly
swept over the length and breadth of tlie
great country south of the boundary
line. It is true, the offect upon our
neighbors had every semblance of unqualified calamity, and amidst the crash
of collapsing banking houses and the
washing away of private fortunes, the
path of the business cyclone bears sulli ���
cie.nt evidence of abounding evil. But
outside the track of wreckage, it seems
quite likely that in this case, a border
land, but little affected by the ills of the
tpmpest, may, incidently, gain a more or
loss considerable benefit from tho unexpected exposure of weakness manifested
by tlie misfortunes of the Ui itod States'
monetary methods and institutions.
Canada, with its conservative business
classes and wise banking laws, has loomed up through the financial storm a ver-
table fortress of safety, and while that
is in itself a matter whereat a whole people may rejoice, even in tho midst of
genuine sympathy with the less fortunate, the fact is none the less likely to
bo of much wider reaching benefit.
If there is merit in advertising,
and of course every properly constituted man believes thero is, then
surely the cause of Canada will flourish,
for what could be clearer to tho civilized
nations than the story of tlie past summer, that In this Dominion first-class
financial goods aro offered on oasy terms
to all desirable purchasers. Depend
upon it, the announcement will be duly
heard from, and in a way to be appreciated. Witliin the writer's knowledge,
several well-to-do people from south of
the boundary, frightened���and hurt, too,
no doubt���by the late late record in their
own land, are now iu this Province seeking eligible purchases of farming property, not on the basis of speculation,
but in quest of comfortable homes and
safe Investment under conditions that
do not breed panic. The same satisfactory tendency has also been noticed in
Eastern Canada, while there is every
reason to expect a similar manifestation
from the people of the British Islands
and tlie continent cf Europe. The most
pleasing aspect of the outlook Is that the
quality of settlers likely to be attracted
Is precisely of the kind that Canada most
of all desires,
forcing attention to tlie fact that the ro-
pair of the chief thoroughfare of tho
municipality is being neglected.

The morning of Wednesday last dawned with the promise of a lovely fall day,
and as tho sun cleared away the light
fog and swung up into a cloudless sky,
the promise was well redeomed. The
day was glorious. At about ten o'clock
a reporter of tho Pacific Canadian
boarded the steamer Transfer for what
proved to be a delightful trip down the
river to Ladner's, there to glean information of interest to the readers of this
journal. Many residents of Westminster
took advantage of the occasion of Delta
Exhibition to visit that most interesting
section of this promising country. The
Transfer was almost inconveniently
crowded with passengers, and the steamer City of Nanaimo also brought down a
considerable number. Hons. Messrs.
Davie and Turner were passengers by
the Transfer, as were also Mr. Jas.
Punch, M.l'.P. for Westminster District,
and Mr. J. C. Brown, M.P.P. for Westminster City.
The trip of a dozen miles down tho
broad Fraser was an invigorating and
highly enjoyable one, and to those not
familiar with the locality, offered many
features of interest in the conformation
of the country as manipulated by the
ever-flowing waters, the various canneries with their suggestions of plethoric
purses, the great stretches of mag lili-
cent farm lands, and over all the oxhili-
iration of brilliant sunshine and about all
the gorgeous beauty of the autumn
On arrival at Ladners, tho Westminster contingent was greeted by a large
crowd of people of the neighborhood and
old friends from all quarters. The reception committee of the Delta Society
was on hand to receive the visitors and
ror.der what services might be needed,
and in a few minutes everyone felt at
home, and sot out to enjoy the day and
its pleasures with feelings of satisfaction
and contentment. lion. Mr. .Turner,
Minister of Agriculture, was taken in
hand by a special committee, and behind a spanking pair cf horses inspected
the nourishing farms of the Immediate
neighborhood. The Hon. Premier had
lo surrender atonce to a siege of friends
and admirers, and. as a public man, was
no doubt delighted with the opportunity
of exchanging ideas with tlie good people
of Delta. Messrs. Punch and Brown
were fittingly entertained by numerous
friends, and indeed, everything went as
merry as a wedding bell.
Ladners Is quite a flourishing town,
nestling on the low bank of the Eraser.
The place has an air of thrift and prosperity, that at Mice strikes the newcomer. The buildings are good, and the
trade of tlie place evidently large, if
one may judge by the tremendous
stocks of merchandise carried by tho
dealers. All the usual bnisness are represented, and there is a large saw mill,
sevoral handsome Churches, a fine school
house, and in tlie vicinity numerous
salmon canneries, each a miniture village
In itself. Undoubtedly tho town of
Ladners is fortunately placid.
At tlie exhibition grounds the fine exhibit of live stock was quite a surprise
to many visitors. The draft liorsos, it
was agreed by all, wore of very high
order, and tlie opinion was generally
expressed that In this class of stock
Delta heads the Province. Uorsns In
Other classes were also good, ami brought
forth favorable comment, Tlie horned
cattle were a credit to tlie district. The
number of exhibits was not large, but
ihe animals were of superior quality,

celved, and was listened to with manifest Interest while he delivered a brief
address as follows:
Hon. Mr. Davie said that after the
address that had just been delivered by
his colleague, Hon. Mr. Turner, little
would be expected from him (Mr. Davie).
He could congratulate them on the
splendid exhibit spread out before him,
which called to his mind a rather different view when, some twenty years ago,
he had first visited Ladners. This morning, Mr. William Ladner, who In those
days went in a canoe to milk tho cows,
reminded him of that visit. There was
then one houso where this flourishing
town now stands. Delta lands wero not
In favor at that time, but here before
him was proof that these lands could be
drained and reclaimed, and become a fit
situ for one of tlie most prosperous little
towns in the Province. Although, since
that visit of twenty or more years ago,
ho had not again, until to-day, repeated
the call, any more than passing on the
river, still he had all along been quite
well acquainted with Ladner's progress,
through the consumption of their products, especially those of the dairy, for
whicli Victoria was one of the principal
markets. He had looked through the
line display of roots and grain, and found
them highly creditable. Ho had noted
the beautiful spread of dairy products,
the lovely floral exhibit, and tliu pretty
collection of ladies' work, and they were
surpassed only in perfection by tho
loveliness :>! the ladies themselves and
tho children. (Laughter.) Tho Ministry, he might say. was alive to the
advisability of protecting the agricultural interests of the Province. In the
past the Government had aided in the
construction of roads and bridges. Last
year tlie Government had seen its way
to make a grant in aid of the trunk road
through Delta, and hoped to see a way
to extend aid lu the future In other
parts. The lato lamented Mr. Robson,
had always tried to advance tlie agrieul-
tuaal Interests. He (Mr. Davie) would
havo a look at the Delta dyke to-morrow,
and endeavor to obtain knowledge for
furture action. Delta, ho felt, was tho
very key between Vancouver Island and
the Mainland. On the right hand it
reached the markets of the  Mainland

outlying districts of this great Province,
and hoped to soon grow into a inure in-
Inu"ti' ucqiiintani'c with them, lie had
been driven around that morning, and
while noting the rich agricultural land,
he had recalled tho appearance of t|ie
same land twenty years ago. when it
contained but little promise of tho
flourishing future that was In store.
From a wild district it had developed to
a beautiful town, with fine churches,
well-attended schools and all the other
requirements and conveniences of advanced civilization.    The progress of the
district could be directly  traced to tho  	
operations of the tillers of the soil, whose j Cities, and on the left those of Vancouver
labors had been so munificently rewarded island, and it locked tho both safe from
by tho Ureal Creator. Agriculture was the attacks of those who would raise
the first of all human occupations, and j the cry of sectionalism In this fair Prov-
well might it rank high in the respect of j,1C0. Delta held the key, and, he was
tho world, for great  had   been   its ac-! certain, would  part first with her life's
coiiiplishincnts. From wild grass, roots
and berries, long forgotten cultivators of
the soil had laboriously through the ages
unfolded our present food cereals, vegetables and fruits, an undertaking and an
accomplishment that might well secure
forever to the tillers of tho land the admiration of all mankind. How much had
by this been added to tlie wealth and tho
joy of life���how much added to the civilization of the nations? Well might wo
give praise for the wonderful development of oven the last forty years, and
which, without the farmers, would never
had been realized. Looking to these
things, therefore, he could well say. that
the labor of the fanner was first in roped of all the employments of men. The
old idea that any loan could successfully
cultivate the ground had to be abandoned,
and prosperity on the farm, as in other
professions, now calls for knowledge,
industry, and persevering application.
All over the civilized world, colleges to
teach tho science of agriculture wore
being endowed by Governments, and in
this advance our own loved Dominion
was well ahead in the progress of the
times. Agricultural reports and bulletins
blood. (Hear, hear.) In no long time.lt was
possible, an iron baud of railway would
curve from Westminster to Boundary
Bay, and thence by powerful ferry connect the Island with the Mainland by
train and locomotive. Mr. Davie then
expressed his thanks for the opportunity
that had been given him to address those
assembled, and took his seat amidst a
round of applause.
For another hour or two the exhibition
room was thronged with people looking
through and admiring the various exhibits, the general excellence of which
was constantly eliciting creditable comments. About live o'clock the exhibitors
commenced to remove their various
articles, and at the same time tho
whistle of tlie Transfer admonished the
Westminster visitors that their holiday
was about at an end. In another hour
tlie exhibition hall was empty, the bulk
of the visitors had departed to their several homes, and the Delta's Agricultural
Show of 1893  was successfully ended.
It had been known  during the after-
ahd weather bureaus all testified to tlie j noon that a political event of somo con-
increasing importance attached to the j sequence had been arranged to take
calling of the tiller of the soli.   Our own ; place during tho evening, and a consid-
Province of British Columbia sought also
for years past to aid tho good cause, and
commencing with last year, the Government had compiled information which
had been put into the shape of a comprehensive report likely to be of immense
servico to the agriculturists of the Province. The report was brought out by
the Department of Agriculture, of which
he was the head, and ho believed that if
it was carefully studied iu overy farmhouse, great good would result to the
community as a whole. One thing it
taught was that it was true wisdom for
every settler to duly consider the product that would yield the best returns
in his locality, and then to cultivate that
product intelligently with an earnest do-
termination to make tho best possible
out of it. It was in tliis way, paying
keen attention to their special capabilities, that the small countries of Europe
erable number of persons remained over
to take part In it. Tho oveut took the
shape of a banquet to Hon. Premier
Davio, In connection with the judges'
dinner of the Delta Agricultural Society.
Tho demonstration created a lively interest locally, and almost all the prominent men of Ladners and the neighborhood sat down to the banquet table in
tho Delta Hotel. Every chair was occupied, and a more good-humored and
appreciative company could hardly bo
imagined. After ample justice had been
dono to the excellent dinner provided,
Mr. J. A. Patterson, President of the
Delta Agricultural Society, called the
banqueters to order. He would, he said,
dispense with formality, and procsed at
once with the duty which devolved upon
him as presiding officer. The exhibition'
just closed had been a success, even
greater than was anticipated, and now
were able to prosper amidst the keenest I the judges who had freely given their
competition. It was this taking full services, and the newspaper representa-

he had   inspected  a   few hours   since.
But because this satisfactory  stage of
progress had been  reached, it would not
do to rest there.    The development of
the country's resources must continue
unabated, and any aid  the Government
could give to that end would be cheerfully given.   As his Hon. colleague Mr.
Turner, had stated, at the opening of the
exhibition  this afternoon,   the   careful
compilation of the lirst agricultural  report of the Province had showed, amongst
other thing of importance, that the immense sum of 81,200,000 had been expended last year on food supplies that
should be produced in British Columbia.
Instead, however, of giving the Department of Agriculture credit for the valuable researches manifested in tlie report, the Opposition press endeavored to
blame the Government because of the
large imports.   But the Government was
not responsible,  and would be only too
glad to be  able to retain the money in
the country   The remedy was to got tho
agricultural lands of the Province under
cultivation, and it had been the constant
policy of the present Government, and
its immediate predecessors, to strive for
the accomplishment of  this  purpose iu
every feasible way.     He did not believe
in the Government holding  the   land.
Complaint was being constantly heard of
the evil of land locked up by speculation
but It seemed  to  him  tho  public estate
would be just as effectively  locked up if
unwisely   held  by   tlie    Crown.      The
true policy was to have the land sold and
settled, and if that could  be largely accomplished the revenue of the Province,
Instead of being diminished, would necessarily bo increased by tlie resulting taxes.
If  all the available land of the Province
could be disposed  of  to private owners,
the Immediate   result would be the permanent addition of millions of dollars to
the provincial revenue.    And the land so
disposed of need not be locked up from
cultivation  by  the private owners, because the right  to  tax  rested
Government,  and if a land owner does
not do right with his land holding,  it is
Jin the power of the Legislature to pro-
to provide a corrective.    At present the
revenue   received   by   tho  Government
from municipalities is not sufficient to pay
for the schools, but the Government feels
that something must also be done to aid
1 the settlements in needed public works.
If the Crown lands could be in large part
sold, the means would be at hand out of
the   taxes    whicli    would   be   reaped
and   the   price   of   the   land,    to   accomplish the opening of the Province in
reasonable measure; but that is a condition not likely
time   to come.
eminent feels it cannot lie idle in
regard to these matters, and if money
to open up the country can be cheaply
borrowed that alternative was well
worth considering Tlie credit of the
Province was high, whicli was a sure indication of printout management on
the part of the Government. The
securities of British Columbia ranked at
the very top of all colonial securities? In
the face of this the Opposition cry of
bankruptcy and blue ruin was injurious
in the highest degree to the country.
As a matter of fact the actual debt���

had been received, and take his seat.
Mr. W.B. Townsend thought, with Mr.
Punch, that the Premier had fully covered tlie grouhd. Speaking of the exhibition he was gratified with the success
of It. The splendid horses had caught
his attention, and be was sure that in
that article of stock Delta could take the
cake from the rest of this Province. In
the hall, the display of roots was magnificent, but he thought Delta had the
advantage In this sort of produce through
holding their show nearly a mouth later
than  the others.
Mr. Thos. Shannon thanked the association for the excellent entertainment
provided. Tlie show was a good ono,
and he had no doubt future shows would
be equally good.
Mr. Pondor was glad to bo of service
as a judge, but ho didn't expect to be
called on to speak. Be had seen a great
deal that day that pleased him. The
roots were primp. He. thought, though,
that Delta should produce hops successfully, and believed if a few enterprising
farmers would take hold of that industry
they would make a fortune.
Mr. Moil was greatly pleased with the
exhibition, and particularly so with the.
The noxt toast was "The Press,"
which was neatly proposed by Mr. Thos.
Mr. .1. C. McLagan, of tlie Vancouver
World, was thankful for the pleasure o.
being present this evening. lie was
more than pleased with the remarks of
the honorable guest of the evening, and
thought that he could catch therein a
glance of the silver lining for which
the settlers of the Province were so
anxiously awaiting. The policy outlined
Indicated to tho settler a releases from
many hardships, a time when bad roads
would largely disappear. With such a
policy tlie Government need have little
with the | fear of appealing to the people, for they
would surely be sustained by a greater
majority than they have now. Nothing
could bo better calculated to advance
the country, and develope a province
that in natural resources ranks second to
none other that the sun shines upon.
Mr. .1. F. Galbraith, on behalf of tho
Pacific Canadian, thanked tho company for their kindness.
Hon. Mr. Davie proposed the toast of
"Those very hospitable people, our hosts,
the Delta Agricultural Society." He
wished to congratulate the officers of
the Society on the success which had attended  thoir  efforts,  for assuredly the
to be fulfilled for some i exhibition was a credit to all concerned
Meantime the Gov-1 jn Jt. The exhibits in some lines eclipsed
the other shows that ho had attended,
and ttiis was especially true of live stock.
Tlie horses of Delta he thought surpassed those of any of the other district
exhibitions. To-morrow he would havo
a chance to inspect some of tlie fertile
lands that grew such flourishing produce,
for lie had been invited by some friends
to dr've out and inspect the dyke now
under course of construction, a trip from
which he hoped to obtain valuable Information for future reference, Delta,
he was aware, was a district of numerous resources. Besides the agricultural
and horticultural interests, there was
also a largo lish industry, and he was
glad to know that the labor and capital
vineyard had been
well rewarded, lie noted in this connection, that the United Stales Government had recently removed the impost
on fresh and frozen fish Into that country, and though this had not been a largo
tax, still the removal of it would tend to
establish a new fish industry. Mr. Davio
well remembered tho timo the lirst tin
of salmon was put up in Victoria, and
through the years the industry had
swelled till now the canned salmon of
the Fraser was an article of commerce
on overy market of the world. Tbe lato
action of the American Government
showed that the pooplo of that country
were alive to the benefits of trade with
Canada, who will thus secure an unlimited market for a practically unlimited
Reeve Benson, in response, said it gave
him pleasure to see their guests so well
pleased. He was an early pioneer of
Delta, and when others wouldn't stop
there, he had, twenty years ago, como
over from the Inlet and took his location, notwithstanding that lie had been
told the tide would wash him and his
holding away to sea.   He bad faith then
of the whole Province of British
Columbia was not as great as that of' employed in tho fish
some of the municipalities, which
certainly was a highly creditable showing, considering the large
expenditures that have been made during the last twenty years, and shows the
fallacy of the talk of excessive expenditure by the Government. With the Provincial credit In its present highly satisfactory state, there was nothing to fear
in borrowing money to open up the
country as the Government was doing
and proposed to do, aiding in the building of railways without loading the
Province, and accomplishing needed
public works in such manner that
the people will not unduly feel the
burthen. Turning now to matters of
current discussion, Mr. Davie said it was
food for reflection that the Opposition
papers devoted their chief attention to
matters beside the question. He had refuted their statement that Westminster
District had been pinched and starved
of the public money, by showing that in
four years the Government had expended
$260,000 or so in that district in
public work. This had never
been contradicted. If the fact can be
controverted, v.'hv not do so, in so grave
a matter, Instead of wasting time over
such petty matters as that he (Mr.
Davie) revised his own speech���which
he In common with any public man
would do when the opportunity occurred, that lie sent a certain despatch from
Soda Creek, that tlie reception at.
Vernon was given  him   in consequence

the Government bad the  confidence of
the people. The actions of the .Ministry
had been vindicated and cu'i be vindicated again, and as often as may be
called for. Before taking his seat, the
Hon. Premier impressed upon liis hearers
the .wisdom of shunning anything
looking to sectionalism, but instead.froin
their favored position to cultivate a market to the right and to the left, und hold
both Mainland and Island tributary to
Delta's prosperity. The benefit, he said,
of a largo expenditure In Cariboo, would
not be confined to that district, but would
extend the whole length of the Fraser and
beyond, and lu the same way a large expenditure lu Victoria would benefit all
other parts of the country. The Province was as a large estate, and what
benefitted one part benefitted the whole.
Don't, said Mr. Davie, he led into error by
the means being employed by the Opposition. Rather encourage a party, and a
policy, and a Oovomment that will carry
on works and Improvements, and strive
oarnestly to develope our common country. Hut if you think tlie Opposition
can do better for you than we can. then
make a change; If not. give the Government your hearty support. (Great applause)

Street  ��� New ffestminster.
It was a bitter disappointment, after
years of poverty, to lind the fortune
whicli I lind thought my own suddenly
wrested from me by a stranger. I was
my uncle's legal heir, for lie died childless, as all the world believed, and on
hearing of the old man's death 1 forgave
him his long neglect and waited eagerly
to receive the welcome news of mv good
fortune. To my dismay the lawyers
wrote me that a daughter had appeared,
whose claims could neither be doubted
nor set aside: the property was rightfully
hers, and I was a poor artist still.
Years ago I had heard of my uncle's
marriage, and the birth and death of a
little child, he himself died suddenly and
left no will, but his last words were:
"lie just���give all to Cecil," and those
about him believed that he meant me
till this beautiful girl appeared, claiming
to be his child, and proving that her
name was Cecelia, which gave a new
meaning to those last words, uttered
with great earnestness and evident distress of mind.
The girl made out her case and won it,
for I was too poor to fight against such
odds, and all was settled before I could
earn enough to leave Italy for home. I
resolved to see this unknown eoiisln before I relinquished nil hope, however,for j
a hint dropped by my old lawyer sug-1
gested the possibility of yet winning a
share at least of   my uncle's handsome
I was young, comely, accomplished,
and tlie possessor of a good name, to
which my talent had already added some
honor. Why not woo this bonny cousin,
and still be the master of tlie wealth I
had been taught to think my own.
Tho romance of tlie thing pleased me,
and as soon as my engagements permitted, I was in England. Desiring to judge
for myself, after hearing the dry facts'
from the lawyers, 1 went down to the
hall unnanouiiced, meaning to play the
unknown artist till satislicd that it was
wise to confess the truth.
Armed with a note of introduction
from a friend of my uncle's, I presented
myself as ono desirous of copying a certain fine Titain in the gallery. Miss
Stanhope was out, but I was permitted
to examine the pictures while awaiting
her return. Among the old family portraits was a half-finished one, evidently
the young mistress, and I examined it
with eagerness.
A very lovely face, yet something
marred its beauty. At lirst I thought it
was my o<vn prejudice; but setting aside
any natural bitterness of feeling, and
regarding it as a work of art. I could
not escape from tho odd fancy that those
imperious eyes could flash with a baleful
lighi, that smiling, red moulli might betray with a kiss, and that dimpled hand
lead a man to perdition. The warm
brown of the luxuriant hair, the smooth
curves of the uncovered neck and arms,
and the soft rich coloring of the dress
gave a sumptuous and seductive grace
to the well-painted picture, the charm of
whicli I felt In spite of myself.
Quite forgetting the Titain, I leaned
back in the depths of a luxurious couch,
with my eyes fixed on the likeness of my
future wife, as I had already called my
cousin, In the reverie to which I had surrendered myself.
A low laugh startled me to my font,
and made me stare in dumb surprise at
the apparation before me. The picture
seemed to have stepped from its frame,
for there in tlie arched doorway, against
a background of soft gloom, was Miss
Stanhope.. The same imperious eyes
lixed full upon me, the red lips smiling
archly, tlie floating hair, half golden in
the streak of light that fell athwart her
head and touched the while shoulder,
the same dimpled hands, lightly folded,
and the same rosy muslins blowing lu
the wind, that revealed glimpses of the
same delicate foot just outlined iu tlie
I was so startled by her abrupt appearance, her strange laughter, and my own
coniendiiig emotions, that all my wonted
composure foorsook inc. and not one of
the smooth speeches prepared fur the interview came to my lips.
Bowing silently, I stood like an awkward lout till she completed my con fusion
byailvaiiciiig with outstretched hand,
saying, in a dellciouslv cordial tone:
"Welcome, cousin; your little plot wus
well laid; but a woman is hard tu do-
cclve, especially when such a tell-tale
face us yours tries to put on a mask."
As she spoke she pointed to ;: mirror
which reflected both my own figure and
that of a gay and gallant ancestor.whose
handsome face showed the most marked
features of our race. I saw the likeness
at once, for my moustache, curling hair
and velvet paletot added to the effect
most strikingly.
Something in the compliment, as well
as her own frank air, restored my self-
possession, and eager to remove nil recollection of my gauclierie, saying, gayly.
as I kissed lier hand with tlie Italian devotion that women like:
"A thousand pardons for attempting
to deceive those bright eyen, but the
banished prince longed lo see the new
ijiicen, and so ventured home iu disguise."
"I forgive the ruse, because you say
liome 111 a tono that betrays In you the
same solitude that I  feel.     It is a large,
lonely house.   There la room enough fur
both, und as we are the last of our race,
why nut cease in lie strangers and both
come home?"
Nothing could have boon more sweet
and simple than look, vol mil  nun i-
as she said this. It touched me, and yet
the vague feeling of distrust born of iny
scrutiny of both the pain tod und the living face still lingered ill my mind, and
robbed my answer of the warmth it
should have possessed,
"Miss Stanhope forgets that I have
lost my  right to take shelter here.    Ilut
since I have seen her my disappoint nt
Is much softened, because for a. woman
young anil beautiful it would be fur
harder to work lor bread than for a man
whose bosom friends for years have been
poverty and solitude.''
She looked at me with a sudden dew
in those bright eyes of hers, and for a
moment stood silent, with the color varying In lier cheeks; then, as if obeying a
generous impulse, she smiled, and looking up at me, said, In a tone whose persuasive gentleness was irresistible:
"Cousin Cecil, promise to stay one
weok aud learn to know mo better. 1
ask it as a favor; and since you possess
tho Stanhope pride, you shall mako me
your debtor by finishing this picture,
Tho artist who began it will not return,
for his own sake I forbade It."
A disdainful little gesture told tho story
of the causo of this banishment as plain
ly as words, and was, perhaps, a warning hint to me. I smiled at it, even
while I felt as the Usher might havu
dono when tlie Lnrelie lirst began to
charm him.
"1 will stay," I briefly said, and then
she asked me about my life in Italy, so
pleasantly beguiling confidence after
confidence from me, that if I possessed
a secret it would inevitably be in her
1 stayed, and day after day we sat in
the long gallery, surrounded bv beauty
of all kinds talking with ever-increasing frankness, while I painted this lovely
cousin, who bewildered my senses without touching my heart.
The old lady who played duenna left
us free, and little company disturbed tho
charming solitude that never lost its
delight to me.
A whim had seized Cecelia to change
the costume from modern to ancient,
and as tho dress of a beautiful ancestress was still preserved, sly; put it on,
enhancing her beautv fourfold by the
rich brocades, the antique jewels and j
priceless laces of past days.
"This little shoe must have a buckle If
it is to be visible, as I beg it may be," 1
said, as she came rustling in one morning like a grande dame Of tlie olden time.
"Hrlug the steel-bound casket, Allele;
we may lind something that will suit
this masquerade," said Cecelia to the
maid that held her train.
Slipping off the coquettish shoo of
white silk with a scarlet heel, she let me
amuse myself with trying which of many
ornaments would suit It best, while she
absontiv clasped and unclasped the bracelets on her round arm.
"This is in perfect taste and a picture
iu Itself," 1 presently exclaimed, holding
up the little shoe ornamented with a
great buckle of eliased silver, set hero
and there with a diamond, and a true-
lover knot formed of a double S In the
"This Is one of the very buckles our
gallant ancestor wore. You can see them
in tlie picture yonder, and tho story goes
that they were given him by his ladylove," answered Cecelia, pointing tu the
portrait of Sir Sidney Stanhope hanging
behind us.
This little fact led me to examine the
trinkets with interest, and having put it
into the silken shoe, 1 fell to painting it
while my lovely sitter amused me with
old legends of our family.
The week had lengthened to three,
and I still lingered, for it was evident
that my cousin, with a woman's generosity, was willing to mako the only reparation iu her power. I felt sure that
tho idea came lirst to her that first day.
When, niter the long pause, she bade me
stay, with varying color and wet eyes
betraying nity interest, and the dawning
affection of a lonely heart, quick to feci
the tics of family. I tried to love lier,
and grew feverish In my efforts to discover why, in spite of the fascination of
lier presence, I could not yield my heart
wholly to her power. What cause had I
to distrust this beautiful and generous
girl? .None; and yet I did, so much so
that I found myself watching lier with a
curious persistence, as if some subtle In-
tiuct warned me to beware.
This habit and the l'ostloness which
possessed me, led me to roam about the
house at night when nil was quiet. My
out-of-door life iu Italy made this freedom necessary to me, and I indulged my
whim so skillfully that no one but the
watch-dogs suspected it���they knew me,
and kept my secret.
Olio evening twilight overtook me at
my easel, and the summons to dinner left
Cecelia no time lo change hor dross.
Lauguuig at tliu strange contrast iu our
costumes. 1 led her to the table, and as
1 watched the brilliant ligure opposite me,
I resolved to know my fate that night,
aud if I nad deceived myself, to break
away at once from the spell that was Increasing daily.
As soon us we were alone again, I led
her out along the terrace, and as wo
paced there, urni-in-ai iu, I told her my
hope and waited for her reply. A strange
expression of relief dawned in lier face
as she looked up al, me with eyes full of
a tender melancholy.
"1 hoped you luiuld tell me this. Do
not think it iinuinidcnly, but believe that
1 saw no oilier way of sharing this good
I'm tune with you," she said, in a voice
curiously calm for such confessions.
"lint, dear, I will haw no sacrifice for
me. If you love me, I accept the rest;
oilier Also not a penny Will i touch," 1
said decidedly, lor her manner disturbed
"// I iove you!" she cried; "how could
1 help it when you are ali 1 have in the
wide world to keep me from "
i'lii'ie she caught oaiksuiiic word that
truiiiblud i.n lier .ii>-. and turew herself
Into my anus, weeping passionately.
Annoyed, jut tuucheu, 1 soothed her,
hoping to iiceive some explanation ui
this sudden uutburst, whicli seemed more
like remorseful grief than happy lovo.
lint quickly recovering herself, she murmured, brokenly:
"I have been so alone nil my life-
exiled from home I know not why���kept
In ignorance of parents and friends till
all were gone���my youth had been so sad
that happiness overcomes me."
Here lier little maid eiunt to deliver a
note; Cicella stepped into the stream of
light which lay across tho terrace from
the long open window of the drawing-
room, read a few lines that seemed
scrawled on a rough bit of paper, told
Allele to say thai she would eoiiie tomorrow, and tearing the note lo atoms,
she rejoined me, saying, earlessly:
"A message from Klspelh, my old
nurse, who Is III and sends for inc."
I thought nothing of the note, but why
did her heart boat so fast, as I drew her
to me again'.' Why were her eyes so full
of miimlctl, anger, fear and contempt'.'
And why did she shiver as if, lo her, the
sultry summer night had suddenly grown
cold'.1 Hut when I asked what troubled
her. she shyly said she was agitated by
happiness alone, and then led me lu and
Bang delightfully till bed time,    As we
parted for the night she lixed her eyes
on me with a strangely tragic look, and
whispered in her sweetest tone:
"Sleep well, Cecil, and be suro I love
I went to my room, but I did not sleep
at all, for my thoughts worried me, and
as soon as the house was still, I stepped
out of my window and roamed away into
the park. A storm was gathering, and
black clouds swept across tlie moon, making litful light and shade; a hot wind
b ew strongly, nnd flashos of lightening
uarted from tlie gloomy west. Tho unquiet night suited mv mood, and I wandered on, lost lu my own thoughts, till
a peal of thunder roused me. Looking
about for shelter, as I was now a long
way from the hall, I saw a steady gleam
not far distant, and making my way to
the botom of a wild glen, I found a little
hovel half hidden among the trees.
Peering in at the low window before 1
asked admittance, I saw, by the dim
light of one candle, an old crone sitting
on tlie hearth, her withered face turned
attentively toward another figure which
stood nearer the door���a woman, evidently, though so shrouded in a cloak,
that her age or sex was hard to guess.
Her back was turned toward me. her
voice fierce and low, her attitude one of
command, and the' words she uttered so
peculiar that they arrested my attention
"If you dare to speak or show yourself
till I give you leave, 1 will silence you in
the surest way. I fear nothing, and
having played the perilous game so far,
I will not be robbed of success when it is
dearest, by tbe threats of a helpless old I
"Not so helpless as you think, ungrate-
ful girl; feeble, old as 1 am, I can undo |
what 1 have done by a word, and I will,
I swear, if you are not kinder," cried the
old woman In a shrill, angry voice. "You
promised I should stay with you, should j
have every care and comfort, and receive I
a generous share of all you got; but now
you keep me here In  this unwholesome
place, witli no one to speak to but half-i
wilted Kate; you never come till 1 scare
you into obedience, and you give me nothing but a paltry pound now and then.
You know I'm too lame  to  escape, and
you threaten me if 1 complain; but hark
you, my lady, I set you up and can pull
you down whether you murder ine or not,
for It's all on paper, safe hidden from
you, but sure lo come to light If any-1
tiling goes wrong with me."
As the old woman paused, breathless
with her wrath and exultation,the young- \
er stamped lier foot with uncontrollable
Impatience, and clenched the slender i
white band that was visible, but her next |
words were kinder, though bitter con-,
tempt lurked in lier tone.
"You may trust me, grandmother; I'll
not touch you unless you arouse the mad
temper which I cannot control. You
know why I do not take you home till my
own place is secure. Yfou are old, you
forgot the babble of things safer untold.
Hero, It can make no trouble for either
of us, but with me, surrounded by curious servants, mischief would come to
both. Can you not wait a little longer,
and remember that in undoing rae you
will surely ruin yourself, sinc�� you are
the greater criminal."
"It would go hard with both of us,
but my age would servo you better than
your beauty, for I can be humble, but
you have tho pride of the devil, and
death itself could not bend it. I'll wait,
but I must have money, my share; I like
to see and touch it, to make sure of it,
for you may deceive me as you do the
world, and slip away, leaving me to pay
the penalty while you enjoy the pleasure."
"You shall have it as soon as I can get
it without exciting suspicion by the demand. An opportunity will soon come,
and I will not forget you."
"You mean this marriage?"
"Then you will really do it?"
"I will, for I love him."
"Hood���that makes all safe. Now go,
child, before the storm breaks, but come
often or I will send fur you, and If there
is any sign of false play my story goes
to this man, and I'll buy my own safety
by betraying you."
"Agreed. (lood night," and the
shrouded ligure was gone like a
I meant to follow it, led by an uncontrollable Impulse, but as I paused to let
her gain a safe distance, the movements
of the old woman arrested me. Nodding
and mumbling with weird intelligence,
she lifted one of the flat hearthstones and
drew out a packet of papers, over which
she seemed to gloat, muttering, as she
peered at the scrawled pages:
"I'm old, but I'm wary, and not to be
shaken off till 1 get my share of the
plunder. She thinks to scare me, but
Kate knows where to lind my secret if
anything goes wrong witli me. I've tutored lier, and my iady will be outwitted at
the last."
Chuckling, the old crone put her treasure back, and, raking up the lire, hobbled away to bed. 1 walled Ull her light
was out. resolving to secure those papers,
for 1 could not divest myself of the conviction that this secret concerned me.
1 had not caught a glimpse of the younger woman's face, the voice was unknown,
the figure hidden, and the white baud
might havu belonged to any lady, yet I
fell a strong Slisplclou that this mysterious woman was Cecelia, and this evil-
minded u!i! beldamo was old Elspolh.
The stoi in broke, but 1 did  not heed
it, for my new purpose absorbed me. As
soon as all was still 1 gently forced the
I low lattice, stepped in. and  groping my
way tu ilie heai th, stirred the smolder-
j Ing embui's till a   little   blaze   shot   up,
j showing me the Hat stone, and glittering
j also on i:n object that brought confirmation  to   my dark suspicions,  for there
j where tho unknown girl had stood lay a
! silver buckle.    1 caught it up, examined
it by the dim light, and could  not doubt
I my own eyes; it was Sir Sidney's antique
ornament, and that Impatient gesture of
Cecelia's foot had left it there to betray
I lier.    1 could readily understand how In
| her  eagerness   lo   slip  away   she   hud
j hastily changed tlie brocades for a slmp-
I lor dress, forgetting to remove the shoes.
; Now 1 was sure uf my right to seize the
papers, and having done so  stole  noiselessly away.
Till dawn the storm raged furiously,
and till dawn 1 sat In my room roadlllg,
thinking and revolving, for those badly-
written pages showed metliiitthe future
i 1 had pictured to myself never could be
1 mine. The charm was broken, the
warning Instinct justified,   and  an luv
j passable gulf opened between my cousin
1 and myself. As the sun rose my plan
was laid, mid making a careful toilet, I
tried to remove from mv face, also, all
trace of that night's experience, but did
not entirely succeed, for the glass showed me a pule cheek, eyes full of a gloomy
lire, and lips sternly set.
I often breakfasted alone, for Cecelia
kept luxurious hours, and we seldom met
till noon. That day I waited impatiently
In the gallery where we had agreed to
have a last sitting. My impatience did
me good service, however, for when at
last she came my paleness was replaced
by a feverish warmth, and the stern lips
had been trained to meet her with a
"Good morning, Cecil," she said, with
an enchanting glance and a conscious
blush as she gave mo her hand.
I did not kiss It as usual, but holding
it loofcly I examined the soft little fingers outstretched In my palm, wondering
as I did so If they could be the same I
last night saw so fiercely clinched.
"What is is?" she asked, looking at rae
with playful wonder lu the eyes nowj
grown so soft.
"Perhaps I was thinking of the ring
that should be here." I answered, feeling a curious desire to test the love of
this unhappy girl.
"I never thought I should consent to
wear evon so small a fetter as a wedding j
ring, I love my liberty so well: but If you
put it on it will not burden me, for youf
will be a tender and generous master,'
Cecil." she answered, turning toward her
accustomed seat to hide tho emotion she
was too proud to show me.
"I have the faults of my race���an unbending will, an unforgiving spirit, and
'the pride of a devil,' so beware, cousin." I
Sho started as I quoted the old woman's phrase aud shot a quick glance at
ine, but I was tranquilly preparing my
palette, and she sat down with a relieved
yet weary air.
"Could you be so unmerciful as old Sir
Guy, who cursed his only child for deceiving him?" she asked, lifting her eyes
to the portrait of a stern-faced cavalier
hanging next debonair Sir Sidney.
"I could, for treachery turns my heart
to stone."
I saw a slight shiver pass over hor.and
leaning lier head on her hand she sat
silent wliile I touched up a jewel here,
a silken fold thero, or added a brighter
gold to the beautiful hair. She looked
fair, voung and tender, but us I had said,
treachery had turned my heart to stone,
and I did not spare her.
"Y'ou are trtste to-day, sweetheart; lot
me amuse you as yen have often done
me by a legend ot our family. I lately
found It In an old manuscript which 1
will show you by and by."
"Thanks; I like old stories If thoy are
strong and tragic," she answered witli a
smile, as she lay back iu tlie great chair
iu an attitude of luxurious indolence.     ^���
"Why, you have forgotten the liul^fl
shoe; I meant to touch up the brilliant
buckle and add a deeper scarlet to tho
coquettish heel. Shall I bid Adele bring
it?" 1 asked, looking fruin the black satin
slipper to the tranquil face lying on the ,'
purple cushion. /
No, It hurt my foot, aud I threw It,
away In a pet," she answered, with a
little frown."
"Not buckle and all I hope, that is an
"I have it safe, but the painted one is
so well dono I will not have it touched.
Let my eyes outshine my jewels, as you
gallantly averred they did, and tell your
tale while you paint, for I am sadly indolent to-day."
As she added falsehood to falsehood,
mv heart beat indignantly against the
traitorous ornament safely hidden in ray
breast, but my face did not betray me,
and I obeyed her, glancing up from timo
to lime to note the effect of ray words,
not that of my work, for I painted with
a colorless brush.
"Sir Marmaduke, for whom our uncle
was named, I fancy, was a stem wan
who married late, and treated his wile
so ill that she left him, taking with her
their littlo child, for being a glri, the
old man had no love for It. Both the
poor things died in a foreign land, and
Sidney yonder, tho comely nephew, was
lawful heir to the estate. The last words
of the old mnu seemed to express his
wish that it should be so, and the nephew
was about to claim his own when tbe
daughter reappeared and proved her

���does my dull story weary you?"
"No, it is only tho heat. Gon on, I
listen," and half hiding the tell-tale cheek
witli her hand, she sat with downcast
eyes, and a face thatslowly grew a colorless mask with tho effort to subdue emotion.
"The old manuscript is not very ciear
on this point; but I gather that the neglected girl's reported death was only a
ruse to shield her from her cruel father.
Her claim was accepted and poor Sidney
left to poverty again. Now comes the
romance of the tale. He. wont to see
this new-found cousin; she was beautiful
and gracious, seemed eager to share lier
prize, and generously offered the young
man a home. This touched and won
him. She suuii evidently loved nini, and
in spite of an inward distrust, ha fancied
he returned the passion.
"As 1 slightly emphasized a word here
and there iu that last sentence, a fiery
glow spread over that white face from
neck to brow, the haughty eyes Hashed
full upon me, and the red lips trembled
as if passionate words were with difficulty restrained. I saw that my shaft
had told, and with resentful coolness I
wont on, still preserving the gay. light
tone that made the truth doubly bitter
and taunting.
"Take the fan that lies iu your lap,
dearest; this heat oppresses you. Yes,
it was very curious to read how this lover
was fascinated In spile of himself, and
how he fought against liis doubts till he
put an end lo llieiu by asking the baud
extended lo him."
The dimpled hand lying on the arm of
the chair was clinched suduenly, and I
saw again the hand of the cloaked woman in the wood, and smiling lo myself
ai this new confirmation,  1  continued:
"But here begins the tragedy which
you like so well. The cousins were be-
irolhed, and that very night Sidney,who
was given to late wanderings, wont out
to dream lovo's dreams, In splto of a
gathering storm which drove him for
shelter iu a little cottage lu the wood.
Here he ovel heard a strange conversation between nu old creature and a mysterious woman whose face he could not
see. (How her eyes glittered as sho
listened ! and what a long breath of relief escaped hor nt those last words I)
"This lively gossip excited Sydney's curiosity, and when the lady vanished leaving this traitor behind her," (here 1 produced the buckle), this bold young man,
guided by the niiitterlngs of the crone,
found null secured a strange confession
of tho treachery of both."
Here Cecelia arose in her chair, and
from that moment lier eyes never left my
face as sho listened, still and colorless as
tlie statue behind her. I think any sign
of weakness or remorse would have
touched mi' then, but she showed none,
and her Indomitable pride roused mine,
making me pitiless. Brush and palate
lay idlo now, aiivi looking straight at
tlie fair, false face beforo me, I rapidly
ended tho story which 1 had begun in
the dlsguiso of an ancient legend.
"It seems that the old woman had been
the confidential servant of Sir Marina-
duko's wife, and had a grudge of her
own against her master. When my lady
and the child died, for die thoy did, as
reported, this woman bided her time,
artfully securing letters, tokens, and
other proofs, to use wheh the hour came.
At Sir Marmaduke's death she put forward her grandchild, the natural daughter of the old man, inheriting both the M
beauty and the spirit of her race. The
girl played her part well, the plot succeeded, and if the sordid nature of tho
I granddame had not irritated the heiress
and kept her in danger of discovery, all
would have worked admirably. Half
justice, under the guise of generosity,
I soothed whatever pangs of remorse the
girl felt, and as she loved Sidney, she
believed that she could extirpate the.
wrong she did him by keeping him happily blind to the treachery of a wife he
trusted. A terrible mistake, for when
he discovered this deceit, the old disgust
turned to contempt, gratitude to wrath,
I and love to loathing."
"What did he do?" she whispered, with
) wite lips, as the agony of shame, despair,
and love looked at me from the tragic
"Possessing something of the chivalry
of his race,   he disdained to crush her
even by one reproach; but though forced
to decline the proposed alliance, he freely
offered   her  safety   and   maintenance, i
forgetting that, in spite,   of  deceit and |
sin, and shame, she was a woman and j
his cousin."
"Did he think she would accept?" she i
cried, lifting  the  head   that  had sunk
lower and lower as I spoke till  her hair
swept to her feet.
I had risen and looked down al her with
uncontrollable pity softening my stern
face.   I answered brielly:
"Yes, for where else could she lind
help but at the hands of her kinsman?"  ,
She sprang up. as if my compassion
was more bitter lo her than my contempt,
the fiery spirit rebelled against me, and
love Itself yielded In the pride that ruled

friond to fly to. Take your rightful

as It must be by the memory of the stain 1

proud of-"
She hurried, as if to lcavo me, but.
pausing at the easel, cast a sudden look
at the smiling image of herself, and
as If anxious to leave no trace behind, she caught up my palate-knife,
scored the canvas up and down till it
hnng in strips; then with a laugh which
\- echoed long in mv cars, she swept slowly
down the long gallery, passed through
ithe wide windows at the further end to
Ithe balcony that overhung the court

back at me with an expression which
fixed that moment In mv memory for
Like a brilliant picture she stood there
with tho light full on her shining hair,
jeweled arms, rick robes, and stately
form, all contrasting sharply with the
wild and woeful faco looking backward
with a mute farewell.
On that instant a terrible foreboding
of her purpose flashed over mo, and I
rushed forward to restrain her; but too
late, for with a wave of her white hand
she was gone.
Death was the kinder friend to
whom she had flown, and when I
found her in the court-yard, shattered
by the cruel fall, sho smiled the old
proud smile, and put away tbe hand that
would have lifted her so tenderly.
"Let me die here; I have no other
home," she whispered faintly; then her
face softened as she looked up at my
pallid face, and feebly trying to fold her
hands, she murmured tenderly:
"Forgivo me, for 1 loved you!"
Those were her last words, and as they
passed her lips, I saw nothing but a
beautiful dead woman lying at ray feet,
and Sir Sidney's diamond buckle glittering in the sun, as it fell from my breast to
receive a bloody stain which lingers still
on that relic of my unhappy cousin.

It was a curious circumstance and
everybody in the smoking-car seemed to
catch on at the same moment. On tho
right-hand side sat a man with a cowboy's hat, woollen shirt, red necktie, pants
in his boot-legs, and a general air of
toughness. Opposite him sat another
man similiarly attired, but with the addition of a grizzly boar's claw for a scarf-
pin. Ono had been with us for over an

each other up and sneer and look sarcastic. Finally the man on the right
meanly observed:
"I reckon your bag of Injun scalps Is

"Y'es, but my gnus are yere," promptly responded the other.
"What's the use of guns onless ye

"What's the use of gab if you don't

'They   were  now   hot and ready for

hand man.
"Is that so? Well, out on our ranch
we don't wait to size up chaps like you.

"Take that back!"
They both sprang up and, of course,
we rushed forward to stop the light.
Near by was a man who had been trying
to get to sleep to cure a headachu. He
sprang up, peeled off his coat, threw
down his hat, and shouted at the two

"Glad to see you, Jack. No books in
that portmanteau, I hope, my boy. A
canter is better than a canto, this weather, or at any other time, for that matter."
Such was the greeting which Sir
Charles Ilarkaway gave to Jack Mllner,
briefless barrister and sporting novelist,
on his arrival in Meadowshire, from the
precincts of Temple and Fleet Street.
Jack was an idle, good-looking, careless fellow of eight and twenty, with a
private income of three hundred a year,
ont of which he paid his club subscriptions, and kept himself in pocket money-
Ills father, who was an old friend of Sir
Charles, paid his debts periodically, declaring each timo that he would never
pay them again, a declaration which
might be delined as wasto of breath,
since it had no effect on Jack or on the
people who gavo him credit. He was
rather clover in his way, but was too
good-natured to exhibit his cleverness
before the light of the world, for fear of
causing envy, so that both in town and
country he was a welcome guest.
The  Moat,   as Sir Charles'   country '
house  was called, he  had always been
brought up to consider as his second
home.   The girls called him Jack, and i
even Miss  Ilarkaway,  who   had  man-:
aged     the     establishment    for    her
brother since  his   wife's  death,  relaxed
her usual state of   frigid decorum under
his Influence.    Her nelces said he could
turn her round his little linger.    Thus it'
was only to be expected, thai when there
was an unusually  large house-party at
the .Moat, Jack should be demanded, in
a round-robin, to come down.
"Well,  Kitty,"  he asked Sir Charles' |
youngest daughter, as he met her in tlie
hall  before lunch,  "who have you got
staying here?"
Kitty enumerated tho names of about
a dozen guests, with running descriptions
on tbem, which they might not have enjoyed, and ended up, "and a Mr. Herbert."
'iAnd who is Mr. Herbert, when ho is
at home?"
"I don't know, except that ho is a
friend of Major Faulkner's. Papa met
him there, and asked him to come with
the major."
"Well, I suppose this army of visitors
is out with tho pheasants!;"
"Y'es; and the girls have gone with the
lunch. Papa has to go to Meadow this
afternoon, and 1, as the youngest of the
family, had to remain homo to receive
"Dou't apologize," laughed Jack.
"You can show me round the stables
after I have satisfied my hunger."
"Very well, and if you are a good boy,
I will show you The Dove.    You know
papa has entered  her for The Ladies'
Plate, in the Meadowshire Hunt Steeple-
i chase, which comes off at the end of next
I week."
It may be mentioned, that at one time
j in his life, Sir Charles had been a pruini-
I nent figure on the turf,  but,   like many
j other men he had been too honest for the
j business, and had wisely retired from liis
i prominence before he had been hit very
i hard through the medium of his banking
; account.    Still,  tho old Adam was yet
alive in him, and ho liked to havo two or
three horses in training during the chasing season.
After lunch, Jack inspected The Dovo,
in that indifferent way in which men
look at their friends' horses when they
have no Interest in them, when Kitty
Ilarkaway asked him somewhat petulantly:
"Well, what do you think of her?"
"She seems lit enough. If she can
jump, and has staving powers, and sufficient paco, she ought to win."
"Three conditions which would ensure
the victory of any horse."
"Yes; 1 believe there is only one more,
and that is if her jockey can ride her."
"And a very important one to you,
sir; for papa means that you should ride
her "
"What nonsense! Sir Charles knows,
as well as I do myself, that I never rode
a race in my life."
"1 confess I did think it foolish of
him," the girl answered, slyly. "But I
know you won't refuse, so you must do
the best you can. If v.ou want to commence training, I will run In and put on
my habit, and we can have a gallop before the others come home."
Jack was a very good man on a horso
across a country after hounds, but he
had never ridden between flags, and he
did not relish the idea of steering The
Dove In The Ladies' Plate. Nor could
ho understand why Sir Charles wanted
him to ride. But he was not kept long
in suspense on that point; beforo going
to dress for dinner, tho baronet asked
him to come Into his study for five
"Jack, lias Kitty told you that I want
you to ride The Dove in Tho Ladies'
Plate next week?"
"Y'es, Sir Charles,; and I was never
more surprised in ray life. I can't understand why you should have chosen
rae as your jockoy. Of course, If you
really want me to ride, I will do so; but
1 doubt if I could win, oven If Tho Dovo
wero good enough herself to win the
Grand National."
"You must do your best, my boy, and
you can't do moro. The truth Is, that
Major Faulkner has got a horse running
iu the race called Spark, and it will he,
to all intents and purposes, a match between this animal and The Dove. I have
backed my mare to beat Spark, on the
condition that both burses are to bo ridden by Jockeys who have never ridden In
a race before. He named as Ills Jockey,
Mr. Herbert, who Is staying In tlie house
Just now, and I named you as mine.
Now you know as much about It as I do."
Jack promised to try Ills best, and
went up stairs to dress. Hut over the
manipulation of his white tie, at which
point III their toilet men are apt to ruminate, he came to tlie conclusion that ho
was let In for rather a bad thing. Instead of tlie easy country-house life
which he had looked forward to, he
should have to ride a young ihorougbred
In her gallops and go Into training himself. Then ills reputation as a horseman
was at stake, for his riding had been
hacked ngainst a perfect stranger. In

ladies had retired from
tlie dinner-table, the conversation Immediately turned on racing. Jack had
\ been sitting some distance from Mr.
\ Herbert, and so had not been able to
form much of an opinion about that gentleman; Now. as tlie talk became gen-
| oral, he could judge better of liis rival in
| tlie prgskin. Apparently he was a quiet,
| unassuming man, unwilling to thrust
1 himself upon the notice of his neighbors;
but a keen observer would have seon
that though he seldom opened his mouth
himself, he heard everything that everybody else said.
Jack Instinctively put him down as a
dark horse, and wondered what A'ould
be the relations between him and Falk-
ner. The latter, who owned a hunting-
box on the other side of the country, was
a well-known man on the turf, and If report did not libel him, was not over
seurupulous iu liis racing transactions.
He was certainly not the man to make a
fancy bet, unless he had very good reasons for thinking that he should win.
Jack knew his reputation well, and relished less than ever the idea of riding
Tlie Dove.
Yet he did not lind tlie task of riding
that mare in her gallops and of going
into training as unpleasant as he had
predicted. For reasons best known to
herself, Kitty Ilarkaway had set her
heart on The Dove winning, and when a
pietty girl takes an interest in our work,
tho work becomes much less arduous.
So, at least, Jack discovered; and though
a flirtation is not, as a rule, supposed to
be good for a man in training, yet, in his
case, Kitty's evident anxiety for his success became infectuous, and he worked
harder for her sake than he would probably have done for himself or for Sir

lu a cosy little dining-riiuin, the walls
of whicli were covered with spurting pictures, two men were sitting dividing
their attention bet ween a decanter of
purl and cigarettes, while they carried
on a conversation which, Xo judge from
countenances, must have been of unusual interest to both of them. It is hardly
necessary to say that these two men
wore Major Faulkner and Mr. Herbert,
who, having returned from enjoying Sir
Charles llarkaway's hospitality, wero
now plotting how to cheat their former
host over The Ladies' Plate.
"It seems a dangerous game to play,"
Mr. Herbert remarked, as he slowly sipped his wine. "Are you sure you can
trust your man?"
"Haven't 1 told you already that 1
can send him to seven years' penal servitude to-morrow, if I chose."
"And whore can he send you to?" tha
other asked, quietly.
For a moment Faulkner turned pale
with passion, but with an effort he recovered his self-control, and, looking his
companion straight iu tlie faco, answered:
"To Jericho, or anywhere else, if he
likes. Aro you dissatislied with your
"Not in tho least, if I am paid half the
price before the race."
"What on earth do you mean, man?
You must be mad!"
"I mean what I say, Faulkner: and 1 do
not think my worst enemy would accuse
me of madness. Since vou seem to forget how the case stands, I had better
state it to you clearly. You back your
horse Spark for five thousand pounds
against Sir Charles llarkaway's The
Dovo, maiden jockeys up, to win The
Ladies' Plate, knowing there is no
other horso in the race who can
come within ton lengths of them. You
nominate me, Herbert, as your jockoy,
being well awaro that I am Tim lleilly,
one of the best cross-country riders in
Ireland. By way of making victory
doubly sure, you order a young farmer,
over whom you have some sort of a hold,
to cross Tho Dove. Those are the plain
facts, are they not?"
"With the addition that I put you on
two thousand pounds for nothing."
"And 1, being a party to your fraud,
demand one thousand before 1 get into
the saddle."
"Suppose I refuse to give it to you?"
"Then 1 refuse  to ride,  and you lose
your bet."
Faulkner tried to persuade Herbert to
alter his mind, but the latter was inexorable, and in another few minutes was
the richer by a cheek for a thousand
"At least," he thought to himself that
night, "if the plot is discovered, I shan't
be the loser by it."
The Meadowshire Hunt Steeplechases
did not differ in any important essential
from the ordinary class of hunt meetings. There was the small stand, with
tlie ring in front, where tho sporting
farmers speculated their sovereigns and
half-sovereigns; while from the carriages ranged along the rails, the male
occupants would come and invest their
livers and tenners, and then hurry back
again to their fair companions, who were
doing their best to fill their glove-boxes.
Conspicuous among the line of vehicles
was Sir Charles llarkaway's drage, with
the owners daughter on tho roof, whose
popularity was evident from the number
of men standing on the steps.
It was an open secret that The Ladiea'
Plate would resolve itself into a match,
and if good wishes could have been of
any avail, Major Faulkner's horse would
havo had a very small chance.
Tlie two first races wore over, and
there was a general march to the paddock to inspect the competitors for the
chief event of tlie afternoon. Although
there wero six starters, all Interest was
centered in Spark and The Dove, both of
whom had plenty of admirers. But,
hark! There Is the saddling bell. Let
us listen to the parting advlcoof tho two
owners to their respective jockeys.
"Now, Jack, you know your instruction, and remember, of all things, not to
bo iii too great a hurry to reach the winning post.   Good luck, my boy."
If the truth must bo told, however, a
glance from Kitty llarkaway's eyes,
gave Jack much more confidence than the
words of Sir Charles.
"You know the game. At the fifth
fence, the post and rails,Tom Beech will
cross The Dove. Keep clear of squalls
there, and all will bo right.
But we must mark time for a minute
or two, while wo examine the thoughts
of that worthy member of society, Mr.
Tom Beech.
What tho nature of the power was
that Major Faulkner exorcised over the
young farmer, it Is not necessary to enquire. It is sufficient that he had caught
Master Tom tripping In a way that
would not havo commended Itself to her
Majesty's judgo sitting at the Countv
Assizes, and knowing him to bo a good
rider, had sacrificed his sense of justice,
at very little cost to his conscience, with
tlie intention of making him his tool.
Beech hated the major with tho hatred
of a man who feels that he is In tho
bonds of slavery; and although he had
not dared to refuse to do his master's
bidding, had been puzzling his brains
how not to do it, without arousing sus
picion. He had three motives for not
wanting to cross The Dove. The first
was his wish to sell the major and make
him lose his bet; tho second was, ho did
not care about risking his own neck in a
cannon over a stiff fence; the third was,
that he had secretly backed Tho Dove
himself. After a considerable amount of
thought, ho had determined to adopt a
plan by which he hoped to attain his
tlireo objects.
"I'm to cross at the lifth fence, tho
post and rails, am 1?" he muttered to
himself, as lie came out of the paddock.
"I'll lay a million pounds to a half-penny
rilnever get there."
The prelimnary canter is over, and the
horses are now under the care of the
starter. The last bets are being booked
amidst shouts of "evens on The Dove,"
"six to live Spark," "ten to one, bar
two." Then comes the cry, "they're
off I" and the six horses are despatched
on their three miles journey.
For the first three fields there is no
material difference iu the order of running. Spark and The Dove wero held
back, and the othors were nearly level,
But as they neared the fourth fence, a
stifiish biillincli, Beech imperceptibly
pulled in his mount, till he was hardly a
length in front of the favorites, Herbert
being on his left, and Jack on liis right.
The three leaders negotiate tlie obstacle
in safety, and that morbid portion of the
crowd, who are always on the look-out
for accidents, are beginning to feel disappointed, when Beech's horse refuses,
and swerves suddenly round to the left.
Herbert had no time tostop. There was
a crush, and then all that could be seen
was a confused mass of two horses and
one man rolling in the ditch on tlie taking off side.
"Two down !" "Spark's down I"
"Three to one on The Dove I" Such are
the cries which the casualty causes In
the ring.
There was suou a crowd around tho
place of the accident. Beech, with a
skill which would havo ensured him a
place in a circus, had, as his horse
swerved, neatly sprung from the saddle,
and landed on the further side of the
fence, but Herbert had fallen underneath Spark, and when, after somo difficulty, ho was dragged out, he was insensible, liis left shoulder had been
dislocated, and his left leg broken in
three placos. Meanwhilo Beech, pretending to be much shaken, had limped
back to tho weighing-room with the assistance of a groom who had happened to
be close by.
Faulkner had hurried to the scene,
his face pale with rage. He looked
round for Beech, but of course could not
see him. Trembling with fear, in the
charge of two rustics, stood the horse on
which he had staked his money; lying
on the ground was his fraudulent jockey.
He had hardly paid any attention when
the doctor said he was not dead, for he
could hear now from the grand stand
the shout of "The Dove wins!" and he
knew, ho was six thousand pounds out of
His knowledge was perfectly correct.
With Spark out of the race, all that Jack
had to do was to steer The Dove over
the course without tumbling off. In
fact, of his three opponents, only one
passed tho winning post, and he had
given his rider two croppers during the
race. Of the other two, one had jumped
clean out of his jockey's hands at the
open ditch, and then trotted quietly back
to the paddock, and the other was dead;
but before he had covered two-thirds of
the course, Jack had therefore won in
tlie commonest of canters, and came in
for qul'.e a shower of congratulations.
Major Faulkner was returning to the
stand with the veins on his temple literally swollen with anger, when a strong,
quietly-dressed man touched his hat, and
"It's not often that Tom lleilly comes
to such grief as that, major. It's a great
"What do you mean?   Who are you?"
"Detective-sergeant Pincher, of Scotland Yard, and I hold a warrant for

sir. though 1 suppose you will give evidence on behalf of the character of your
friend on his trial?"
And Mr. Pincher walked away with
tlie air of a man who had just done a
charitable action.
Jack did not return to the precincts of
the Temple and Fleet- Street as soon as
he had intended lo, for during the evening after the races he had a conversation with Kitty Ilarkaway, whicli materially altered his plan for life. And now
when people talk about steeplechaslug,
he is wont to say: "I only rode one race
iu my life, and I not only won The
Ladies' Plate, but 1 won the lady as
The Attractions of Whitewash.
A missionary stationed at ono of the
South Sea Islands determined to give
his residence a coat of whitewash. To
obtain this, in the absence of lime, coral,
was reduced to powder by burning. Tho
natives watched the process of burning
with interest, believing that the coral
was being cooked for them to oat. Noxt
morning they beheld the missionary's
cottage glittering in the rising sun white
as snow. They danced, they sang they
screamed with joy. The whole island
was in contusion. Whitewash became
the rage. Happy was tho coquette who
could enhance her charms by a djiub of
the white brush. Contentions arose. One
party urged their superior rank; another
obtained possession of the brush and
valiantly held it against all comers: a
third tried to upset tho tub to obtain
somo of the precious cosmetic. To quiet
the hubbub more whitewash was made,
and in a week not a hut, a domestic
utensil, a war club or a garment but was
as white as snow: not an inhabitant but
had his skin painted with grotesque
figures; not a pig that was not whitened:
and mothers might bo seen in every direction capering joyously and yelling
with delight in the contemplation of the
superior beauty of their whitewashed
babies.���Missionary Chronical.

First Gorilla in America.
What is said to be the lirst live gorrilla
ever brought Into the United Slates is
now in the possession of Donald Burns,
the dealer iu wild animals and reptiles,
Roosvelt street, New York. Zotilo is the
monster's name, lie is over six feet in
height, and with upraised arm can reach
a height of over seven feet, liis skin is
of dirty brown, covered with a mass of
short grey hair. The hair on the arms
Is longer, but the chest Is devoid of any
hirsute growth. His laws are thickly
covered with a heard.
Ho is positively human iu his ways,
and has all the cunning of a madman.
Some idea of his strength can be gained
when it is said lie wrenched the three-
inch iron bar from his cage on his way tu
this country, and twisted it into a shapeless tangle, ll took the united olforts of
four men to hold him in subjection while
a new bar was being lilted lu his cage.
Zoiilu was captured in the Congo country, near Lake Tanganyika.   Mr. Hums'
agent lui'i heard a good deal about him,
.and made unusual effort!  to   get   him.
i The man-monster was surrounded by 40
i Africans,  under tbo agent's direction,
j In the forest, and was secured by tlirow-
| ing  strong  nets over  lilui  and binding
i his limbs after he had so entangled himself that lie was helpless.      Before  this
was accomplished, however, a  terrific
struggle   took   place.      lie  hissed   and
snarled   at  his  captors  with   horrible
ferocity.   He was carried through the
jungle in  a conveyance drawn by eight
oxen, and wasbruught to America iu the
hold of an African sloop.
Speaking in Edinburgh, recently, Rt.
lion. G. J. Gosehen, Chancellor of the
Exchequer In the last Salisbury cabinet,
hinted that Mr. Gladstone's projected
Registration Reform Bill would be rejected by the House of Lords, unless the
measure should be accompanied by provisions for such a redistribution of such
Parliamentary seats as would reduce the
uumbor of Irishmen at Westminster.

Terrible Railway Accsdent.
Bettle Creek, Mich., Oct. 20.���A railroad wreck occurred on the Grand Trunk
at St. Nicholas, half a mile east of here,
at 3 o'clock this morning. A Raymond-
Whitcomb special from the World's Fair
collided with No. 0 Express going west.
Three cars wore burned. It is reported
twenty-five persons were killed or burned to death. Fifty more were Injured.
The Whitcomb special over-ran its orders.
Lateh���Detroit, Oct. 20���Grand Trunk
officials in this city have advicos that
four passengers were killed and twelve
Injured aud two coaches burned. Tho
trains were No. 0 Express, coming east,
and No. 9 Express going west. Both
were crowded with people coming from
and going to the World's Faflr. All
those killed and injured are from east of
Niagara Falls, about evenly divided
between New York State and Pennsylvania.
Later���Battle Creek, Mich., Oct. 20���
Later particulars say at least thirty
persons lost their lives, and double as
many are badly injured.
When the collision took place the
second and third day coaches on the
train going west were completely telescoped. It was in these cars that the
horriblo sacrifice of life took place. The
second coach cut through tho third
coacli like a knife, and the roof passed
over the heads of the sleeping passengers
who were completely entombed in a fiery
furnace. There were thirty dead bodies
taken out this morning by the firemen.
They had been burned like rats in a trap.
The accidont happened a mile from
the first station*, and before water could
be turned on the cars, thoy were all
burned. Tho bodies were burned so
badly as to be unrecognizable. ' Nearly
all had their heads, arms and legs burned off, and cannot be identified as yot.
As the second car was driven back
through the third, it swept tho people
in a a mass to the north end. In the
latter car, in the vicinity of the stove,
was where most of the bodies were
found. The cars immediately took fire,
and in an instant were all in a blaze.
One passenger only escaped through the
doorway. The others who escaped
smashed out the windows and climbed
A most horrible sight was presented.
Mrs. Charles Van Duson, Fort Plain,
N. Y., succeeded in getting half way out
of the window, but her legs remained
fastened, and those who ran to her assistance could not release her. She
burned to death before their eyes, with
half hor body still hanging out of the
Death of a Notable  Woman,
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 20.���Mrs. Dous-
chka Pickens Dugas, who has just died
in Edgfield County, S. C, was tho great
"Red-shirt Heorine" ot the Wade Hampton campaign of 1870, which redeemed
South Carolina from carpet-bag domination. The State was completely under
negro Republican control, but General
Hampton had sworn that he would bo
Governor, "or know the reason why."
The Republicans were aroused throughout the State, and clashes with the
whites were almost of daily occurrence.
At this juncture a band of 1,500 "Red-
shirts" rode Into Edgfield village with
Douschka Pickens at their head. She
was clad in a costume of red, and from
her hat waved a long plume. She had
called the men to follow her; the wildest enthusiasm was kindled throughout
the State, and the "red shirts" were
A few years lator, Douschka Plckons
married George Dugas, a man of culture
and brilliant attainments. He carried
her to Augusta, Ga., his home, whero
she could have reigned a social queen,
but she could not endure the restraints
of city life, and returned to the home of
her -girlhood, where sho died. In the
funeral cortege were veteran soldiers,
old family negroes, and twenty hunting
dogs that had often accompanied her in
the chase.
Douschka Pickens was the youngest
child of Governor Francis W. Pickens,
of South Carolina. Her mother was
Lucy Holcombe, a Kentucky beauty,
who, as a bride, was presented at the
Court of St. Petersburg, her husband
being IS S. Minister to Russia at tho
time. The "red-shirt heroine" was
born in the palace of the Czar. Sho was
christened Francesca, but as a little
child she was called Douschka, which in
the Russian language means "darling."
That name always clung to her.

According to the Halifax Chronicle, the
story that the King's regiment is to be
removed to Victoria Is a fake. A verdant
reporter went to the barracks to get
some news and a couple of sergeants

the sergeants had reclved information
from the War department that had not
been communicated to the commanding

He went into the house for his gun. and

animal dropping the ground. It proved
to bo old and toothless, and was probably
driven by necessity to subsist upon such

evident relish. Mr. Fisher states that
he has been missing the fruit for a considerable time, and this bear was evidently a permanent boarder in his and
neighboring orchards.

South Cowicban, Oct. 17.���Thomas Col-
vin and D. Stewart were returning home
from business about fivo o'clock yesterday afternoon when Mr. Stewart's collie
bitch, Tibbie, got on the scent of a panther. In a few minutes there was a
panther hunt, without a gun or a rifle.
After rnnning over logs, brush, etc., for
a short time the panther climbed a long
dead tree. Mr. Stewart and Tibbie kept
the panther up the tree until Mr. Colvin
went for William Stubbs and his 54-
calibre rifle. Tho first ball made the
panther jump round the tree and twist
his tall in ever so many different ways,
and the second ball brought him down.
It was a male measuring seven feet.
Being about dark the hunters made their
way home, to return noxt morning for
the head and skin. Tibbie was imported
from the north of Scotland 18 months
ago and is a collie of the first water.
