•'We were talking the other evening,"
resumed the host, addressing Horatio,
partly with the view of displaying the
conversational powers of his new acquaintance, and partly in the hope of
drowi.ing the grocer's storiet — "we
were miking the other night about the

every body looked very grave, as if they
were quite overcome by the profound
nature of tin, previous discussion.
Flamwell, who had made up hia miu.I
to find out who and what Mr. Horatio
Sparkins really was, first broke silence.

No one made any reply.

Tom, hazarding another observation.
"lorn. I beg yoo will not make your
self riJiculous," said his father. "Pray
listen, and improve yourself by the
convert tioti vou hear, and don't be
constantly making these absurd remarks."
"Very well, father," replied the unfortunate Tom, who had not spoken a
word since he had asked for another
slice of beef at a quarter past five
o'clock, p. in., anl il was then eight.
"Well, Tom," obseived his good
natured uncle, "never mind? I think

Mr. Malderton coughed violently.

returning to the charge."

"You are lucky, if you have had an

observe Flamwell, with an air of pio-

whispered to Mr. Malderton, confidentially, sa they followed Horatio up to
the drawing room. "Ita quite clear,
however that he belongs, to thelr.w and

Mr. Frederick, tried over glees trios

plea-ing discovery that their voices harmonized beautifully. To be sure, they
all sang the first part; and Horatio, in
addition to the slight drawback of having no ear was perfectly innocent of
knowing a note of music, still, thev

length, the vehicle stopped More a
dirty looking ticketed linen-draper's
shop, with goods of all kinds, and labels

There were dropsical figures of seven,

"I want to see some silks," answered
Mrs. Malderton.
"Directly, ma'am. — Mr. Smith!

Mr. Smith, thus enjoined to use all
possible dispatch, leaped over the coun
ter with great agility, and placed himself before the newly-arrived customers.
Mrs. Malderton uttered a faint scream;
Miss Teresa, who had been stooping
down to talk to lier Bister, raised her
head, and   beheld —Horatio   Sparkins!
"We will draw a veil," as novel
writers say, over the scene that ensued. The mysterious, philosophical,
romantic, metaphysical Sparkins—he,
who, to the interesting Teresa, seemed
like the embodied idea of the young
dukes and poetical exquisites in blue
silk dressing-gowns, and ditto ditto
slippers of whom she had read and
dreamed, but had never expected to
behold, was suddenly converted into
Mr Samuel Smith, the assistant to u
"cheap shop;'' the junior partner in a
slippery firm of some three weeks existence. The dignified evanishiiient of
the hero of Oak Lodge, on this unex
pected recognition, could only be
equaled by that of a furtive dog with a
considerable kettle at his tail, All the
hopes of the Maldertous were destined
at onca to melt away like the lemon
ices at a Company's dinner; Almacks
was still to them as distant as tlie
North Pole; and Miss Teresa had as
much chance of a husband, as Captain
Ross had  of the north west passage.
Years have elapsed since the oc
currence of this dreadful morning
The daisies have thrice bloomed on
Camberwell Green; the sparrows have
thrice repeated theii vernal chirps in
Oamberwell Grove: but the Miss Maldertous are still unmated. Miss Teresa's
ease is more desparate than ever; but
Flamwell is yet in the zenith of his
reputation; and the family have the
same predilection for aristocratic personages, with an increased aversion to
anything low.
(rents' Furnishing
Onb winter's evening towards the
close of tho year 1800, or within a
year or two of that time, a young
medical practioner, recently established
in business, was seated by a cheerful
fire, in his little parlor, listening to the
wind which was beating the rain in
pattering drops against the window,
and rumbling dismally in the chimney
The night was wet and cold; he had
been walking through mud and water
the whole day, and was now comfortably reposing in his dressing-gown and
slippers, more than half asleep and less
than half awake, revolving a thousand
matters in his wandering imagination.
First, he thought how bard* the wind
was blowing, and how the cold, sharp
rain would be at that moment beating
in his face, if he were not comfortably
boused at home Then- his-mind reverted to his annual Christmas visit to
his native place and dearest friends; he
thought ho x glad they would all be to
see bim, and bow happy it would make
Rose if he could only tell her that he
had found a patient at last, and hoped
to have more, and to come down again
in a few months' time, and   marry her,
stracting peppermint drops, taking
animals nourishment, and go»e; to
"A lady, sir-a lady!" whispered the
boy, rousing his master with a shake
"What ladyT' cried our friend,
starting up, not quite certain that this
dream was an illusion, and half expecting that it might be Rose herself.
'•What lady?    Where?"
'There, sir!" replied the boy, point-
ng to the glass door leading into the
surgery, with an expression of alarm
which the very unusual apparition of a
eus'omer might have tended tt excite.
The surgeon loiiktS-l towards the
door, and started himself, for an instant, on beholding the appearance of
his unlooked for visitor.
It was a singularly tall woin-m,
dressed in deep mourning, aiid*8taiiiling
so c|fse to the door thttf her face almost touched the glass. The upper
part of her figure wj» carefully muf-
ll'-il irra black shawl, as if for the purpose of concealment; and her face was
shrouded with a thick black veil. She
stood perfectly erect; her figure was
drawn up to its full height, and though
the surgeon fell that the eyes beneath
the veil were fiiyd on him, she stood
perfectly motionless, anil evinced, by
nn gesture whatever, the slightest con
sciousness of his having turned toward
"Oo you wish to consult me?" he inquired, with some hesitation, holding
open the door. It opened inwards,
and therefore the tuition did not alter
the position ofthe figure, which still
- - - -'   -"' ...„.:...'..     ..    .1.. —._..-. „,,„..
She slightly inclined her head in
token of acquiescence.
"Pray walk in," said the surgeon.
The figure moved a step forward;
and then, turning its head in the di
rection of the boy—to his infinite
horror—appeared to lie itate.
"Leave the room, Tom, "said theyoung
man, addressing the boy, whose large
round eyes had been extended to their
utmost width during this brief interview. "Draw the cunain, and shut the
The boy drew a green curtain across
the glass part of the door, retired into
the surgery, closed the door after him,
uud immediately applied one of his
large eyes to the keyhole on the other
The surgeon drew a chair to the fire
and motioned the visitor to a seat.
The mysterious figure moved slowly towards it. As 'he blaze shone upon the
black dress, the surgeon observed that
the bottom of it was saturated with
mud and rain.
"You are very wet," he said.
"I am,' said the stranger, in u low-
deep voice.
"And you are ill?" added the surgeon
compassionately, for the tone was that
of a person in pain.
''lam." was the reply—"very ill:
not bodily, but mentally. It is not for
myself, or on my own behalf," continued
the stranger, "that I come to you. ]r
I labored under bodily disease, I should
not be out, alone, at such an hour, or
rn such a night as this; and if 1 were
afflicted with it, twenty-four hours
hence, God knows how gladly I would
lie down and pray to die. It is for
another that I beseech your aid, sir. 1
may be mad to ask it for him I think
I am; but night after night through the
long dreary hours of watching and
weeping, the thought has been ever
present to my mind; and though even
I see the hopelessness of human assistance availing him, the bare thought of
laying him in his grave without it,
makes my blood run cold?" And a
shudder, such as the surgpon well
knew art could not produce, trembled
through the speaker's frame.
There was a desperate earnestness in
this woman s manner, that went to the
young man's heart. He was young in
his profession, and had not yet witnessed enough of the miseri s which
are daily presented before i he eyes of
its members, to have grown comparatively   callous to human suffering.
"If," he said, rising hastily, "the
person- of whom you speak, be in so
hopeless a condition as you describe,
not a moment is to be lost. I will go
with you instantly. Why did you not
obtain medical advice before?"
"Because it would have beenuseless
before—because it is useless now," replied the woman, clasping her hands
The surgeon gazed, for a moment, on
the black veil, as if to ascertain the expression ofthe features beneath it; its
thickness, however, rendered such a re
suit impossibl-.

i ii'.- house of Commons on Tuesday the Gladstone Government had a
narrow escape. The conduct of ihe war
in lhe Soudan was the subject under con
sideration. Lord Hamilton declared that
lhe Secretary of stale for war had made
a most exlraordiny statement. After
declaring it was the intention to take
Khartoum he announced the abandon
ment of the Soudan. After murdering
ten thousand men the Government
hopes this house will approve of (heir
policy. It means defeat, disgrace and
shame, and I declare, said the noble
Lord, the greatest danger ihat threatens
England to-day is the incapacity of hei
ministers. The motion was defeated

On Monday Mr. Gladstone in the
house stated that the Afghan frontier was
defined by the representat ves of England and Russia, and that the arrangement was satisfactory to Her Majesty's
Government and to lord Dufferin the
Vice-Roy of India. It would be made
subject 10 a convention with Russia.
In lhe house on Tuesday last the bill
intended to authorise the making of a
tunnel to connect Kngland and France
was thrown oui by a vote of 281 to 99.
The conservatives and lhe Boaid of
Trade  were opposed to   the measure.
The wisdom of Gladstone is a real
misfortune to his country. It will ruin
England. 'I he good old man loves
peace; but good old men at particular
periods of life shood be put into cradles
and rocked. Judged by newspaper reports and telegraph c dispatches this good
old man deserves to be in heaven; but
he is worse than useless where he is on
eaith However the decision on Tuesday proves that the majority in ihe
old country trust him and believe that
peace at any pric } is desirable. If we
had such a man as Palmerston in place
of Gladstone the Czar of Russia a-ded
by a thousand deputies would not be
able by this time to count the bloody
noses in his dominions.   He laughs at
wns slightly wounded and
is in the hospital; the other escaped
thn bullets and is in juil. The history
of tbis affair reminds a man of tbe
dogs and their quarrels at particular
times. Decency is dying. The man
and ths woman will soon be on terms
of equality with the animals who go
about without hats or bonnets.

At a ball in New York on Monday
a young girl named Mnggie Morris was
brutally assaulted by a police sergeant.
She asked for a drink aud he enticed
her into a barroom on the premises.
The bar-keeper, armed with a heavy
mallet, stood at the door and wounded
two of the persons who came to rescue
the screaming girl. In a few minutes
the ruffian pushed the bar keeper aside
and rushed through the crowd to the
street and escaped. Immediately after
the girl appeared, screaming, "Let ine
die—1 am ruined." The constable was
arrested that night and taken before
Judge Dully, who let him out on bail.

The Winnipeg" House
Ccr. Clarke and Kyle Sts.,   -   Port Moody, B. C.
The recent negotiations between
England and Russia respecting the
Afghanistan frontier,have elicited many
and varied feelings. On the part of a
large number of commercial men in the
United States, the feeling has been one
of pleasurable anticipation, ns the prob-
abilily of war became greater, because
it is supposed that, although Russia
has not a formidable fleet, she has a
great number of vessels and would
make a point scouring the seas in
quest of English merchant vessels,
which would naturally be driven 10
British ports for safety, and the consequence would be the transfer of the
foreign trade to American vessels, and
the resulting retrieval of the shipping
trade lost at the time of the Alabama,
by the United States. Provisions
would also meet a ready market at
much higher prices than those now
current, and some enormous fortunes
would be made by the fortunate American speculators. Other nations hailed
the war as likely to cost Great Britain
a great many men and a great deal of
money, and if nothing worse occurred
she would be likely to concede a great
deal for the sake of   peace,   when   the
who is no favorite of ours, but simply
that  our readers may not be led   into
adopting  erroneous conclusions.    We
are all aware that Gladstone is 110 lover
of war; nnd the sure result, from thai
fact being generally known, is that he
has been forced  into a number of disastrous and expensive small wars, which
would all have been avoided if the old
prestige of England had been Upheld,
as it would have been by Lord Beaconsfield. But iu the present insance tbere
is no retreat, and any att nipt to avoid
war under existing circumstances,would
be nothing short of fatuous imbecility.
It must be  borne   in   mind   that any
thing in the shape of overt war, untii
the declaration is made, would be sini
ply piracy,  and   would   bo  treated  as
such by tho hanging of the perpetrator*
whenever    they    weie    subsequently
found.   Thus, the ten thousand English
merchant vessels of all kinds, with their
cargoes, are quite safe  from   capture
until war is  declared.    There are numerous  scattered   possessions of Eng
l.nd which are  still unp-otected, particularly coaling stations, and the stock
of coal at most of  them   is  very low.
It is unn eessary to  say  that in  the
event of war it would   be  next to impossible   to  supply  these places  with
coal, and that would almost cripple the
British navj-.    Now, when the coaling
stations  are  well  supplied,  when the
outlying settlements ore fortified, when
the ships now at sea are near home and
can be protected   by our flying squadrons, Mr. Gladstone - if lie remains in
power—may assume another tone, and
Russia is perfectly well aware of this
fact.    Hence she is pushing on in Afghanistan,   perfectly   regardless of  (he
pending negotiations;  she is  pressing
Turkey to pay up   the award   of   tin-
Berlin congress, and  she will do many
more  things   with   perfect   impunity,
until England   is in position to throw
down the gauntlet,   when  she will  no
doubt be otherwise   employed.    Jlean
time she is taking every advantage of
her opportunities to prepare herself for
war. for she knows that the approach
ing combat  will   be a life  and   death
struggle.    If   France fails her, she is
likely to pay dearly for her war predilections.
At this  moment,   when capital in
England   may be  said to  be  "going
a-begging," ivhen, in the face of one of
the greatest crises in the history of the
world, money is to   he  Iiad  in London
on safe security nt two and ihree quarters per cent., it is remarkable that so
little is known of this Province and that
we are without the stimulus that money
would give to our progvess.    With a
climate the exact  counterpart of the
South of England;   with a fertile soil
unexcelled   anywhere;   with  immense
wealth in minerals which lie undeveloped for want of the means to eliminate
them from their earthy beds; with the
gate of tho  Dominion on the  Pacific
Ocean, which is now giving birth to a
new world,  we are  neglected  and un-
thought of,  owing,   no doubt, to our
uninviting aspect as seen in the news
paper accounts of our peculiar govern
ment.    It must be always remembered
that capital is shy and carefully avoids
all countries not dominated by a shrewd
and conservative policy.    Our own, in
fact, is at present in the hands of men
who have uo policy at all; whose minds
are so small and contracted that they
can only sen progress through the medium of their own interests, and prefer
that   depression  and   the  absence  of
confidence in   foreign capital,  should
exist  rather than  risk a  scheme  for
their  own aggrandisement.     The  investment of wealth which would have
been the means of making our terminus
difficult to  find  in the whole world a
finer site for the  future metropolis of
the western   world than   Port   Moody
and ita environs.    The harbor is simply
perfect.     It   is  really a  great dock,
undisturbed  by any wind thnt. blows,
open at all seasons and   with depth of
water at low tide for the Great Eastern
to lie at its wharves, without a jutting
rock at its sides or a part of the bottom
to impede safe anchorage.    On  either
side th"? banks rise with a gentle slope,
giving it the appearance of an amphitheatre; but at the head, the land opens
out iuto a level fla', with only sulficient
incline to make drainage all that could
be desired.    It  is  supplied  on  every
side with  delicious water in quantity
sufficient to supply the city of London,
and witii such a fall thnt it can be conveyed   to   ihe highest, chain bors  in  n
house, and for extinguishing 0m will
be ever ready by means of fan."-Is  in
the  streets.    Its building  material is
inexhaustible, timber, granite, and the
very finest clay for In inks, are ready to
the hand.    In fact, nature has favored
Port Moody more than any other place
with   the   like future before   it   and
no hing can divert its manifest destiny,
With, it is said, the desire of  certain
greedy capitalists to secure the lands in
and around Port   Moody, an   attempt
was made to divert attention anil capi
tdl (0 the mouth of the Inlet, and with
that object Coal  llnriior, or "Vancouver," as it was called,  was cracked up
in every part ot the   world.    The object of so much misrepresentation was
only   partially  attained,   a   few poor
people were compelled   to sell or abandon  ihe   lots  they had   purchased   on
part   payment,   hut   the   great land-
holders   were  unmoved.    Thn loss  to
the Province, however, has  been very
great.    People who came here from nil
parts of   the   woild   to   invest  their
money lost confidence jn both  places
fioiu   want of   knowledge,   and   went
away.   I'ut a great-many people were
induced by the fraudulent  description
of Vancouver to  invest   money which
they have  now lost forever.    At this
moment money could  be  invested  at
Port Moody, which, ere long, will yield
a thousand per cent, and it is nt Port
Moody thnt  English capital   can find
safety  and ther must  profitable investment   iu   what   Englishmen   enn  best

The buttle of the terminus—of tho Canadian Pacific railway—so far as such a onesided affa.ir could he considered a battle,
seem*, to have been brought to a final conclusion. Tort Moody is obviously victorious;
and the English Buy and Goal Harbor force
Rcem to have subsided in despair. I learn
that one of the moat largely interested of
the projectors in the latter Held, has,, within
a few days, made an assignment; that a contract for clearing np eighty-five acres of
town lots at Coal Harbor has been recalled
and r.iiiivlY.i: and everything denotes a
general collfiptie at the mouth of the Inlet.
Meanwhile tlie work upon the Government
fiortion of the railway, at this end of the
ine, really does move perceptibly, but only
in the usual merry-go-easy way, under Mr
Contractor Onderdonk. I believe that gentleman's contract expires in June next; and,
with the exercise of even a moderate degree
of energy, his work might have been completed by that time. In point of fact, even
the first oue hundred miles out from Port
Moody "annot be entirely completed within
a twelvemonth, and with all the force that
can be put upon it. It iM true that trains
ran over it daily, between Port Moody and
Savonaa—213 miles—and not only construction trains, but freight aud passenger trains;
bnt it is dangerous work, and very damaging
to the rails upon this unballasted and only
partially graded road-bed. The public complain grievously in that Mr. Onderdonk, in
utilizing the railway to his own profit, makes
exorbitant charges for freight and passage—
heavier than are tolerated anywhere else in
the Dominion. Still, he seems to be allowed
to do juat as he pleasea. I may mention, as
an instance of the progress with which this
railway work is being carried on, that tenders for two engine honses—one at Port

All this, of course, means that Kngland
can n i longer be imposed upon or put off, and
that even for Mr, Gladstone the Russian
game of masking aggressive movements in
the field by duplicity in tbe Cabinet is now
played out. ftfu d nbt, tbe British Premier
has some inveterate admirers who will see

throws d.rwn.
A conscientious statesman is a rare and
edifying spectacle, but when it is perceived
that Russia has employed the last two weeks
in improving ber position iu the neighborhood of Herat, Kuglishinen may come to the
conclusion tbat Mr. Gladstone's conscience
is a go.id thing in the wrong place. General

reluctance of the Ufa 'stone*! 'abinct to suller
an Anglo-Indian army to aeeep't the challenge given at 1'enjdeh by pushing on to

Behind   the  cloud   of  dust  assiduously

three  broad fsots  i-tatid out  with   ominous
distinctness.    In the first licit of w rath at
tin altaek upon the Afgii.-tis and the seizure
of Penjdeh,   it wus announced iu  Loudon,
and apparently With Ministerial  approval,
that war could only bs averted  by Russia's
disavowal and recall of Gen.   Komaroff aud
the prompt withdrawal of her troops from
the   disputed  territory.    To  impartial   onlookers it seems that this was one of the few
instances in which men do well to be angry
and  to   heed   the  instructive   admonition.
"Hotter a linger oil' than aye waggin."    Nu
doubt Russia Would have met a fi'm ultima
tutu of this kind with an equally Inflexible
repulse, and war would have been declared

resolute  attitude  been  taken,   the Knglish

must  speedily succumb,   would   be  much
nearer  Herat than   they are  to-day?    Asa
matter of fact, no peremptory message was

' A discussion has been lately going on in
Kngland with referenoe to the employment
of electric eels for purposes of vivisection.
One papers points out that before aa
anti-vivisectionist protests against experiments upon electric eels, he should abjure
eels altogether as an article of food; for eels
are usually skinned while they are still alive
on the ground that this culinary process
removes the oil with the a!.in and leaves the
flesh white and firm. And the St James's
Gazette says that uo virtues have been written down to the eel's credit. It does nnt
csre for the Bufferings of other fish. No eel
is ever touched to its heart because a big
cod has made a breakfast off of two dnzeu
whiting. Besides, the eel is a cannibal. A
big eel in want ol a meal always looks nut
for a little eel. Why auti-vivisectioniste
should be tender over so unfeeling a creature
it is harrl to see.
There is ttill living in tho north of Scotland an old lady who can give the curious
visitors who sometimes drop in on her in
interesting glimpse of Lord Bryon. When
the century was young she accompanied two
or three holiday makers to Glamis Castle,
then thrown open to visitors, and at the entrance, fear fell upon them. By and by a
handsome cavalier with a club foot evidently
a guest st the castle, sauntered up the walk,
and took in the situation at a glance. He put
hit arm rouud the prettiest girl's, waist and
drove the others giggling up the steps and
iuto the hall, where he even signed their
names in the visitors' book for them. Gray
are now the locks through which the poet's
fingers wandered; but the only survivor of
the little incident loves to recall how George

At a meeting of the Academic luternstion-
tic de Coiffure held recently at the Gott
•mi Star Hotel Piccadilly, in London, M.
Eugene Menard delivered a lecture in which
he gave an historical review of the
powdered coiffurers from their introduction until their disappearance
about tbe begining of this century.
According to M. Menard, ladius' coiffures
seem to have attained their greatestextrava-
g*»nceduring the reign of Louis XVI., when
the caricaturists nf the day represented hairdressers as mounted upon high steps while
preparing ladies' coffures. Leaders of fash-
ton underwent trying ordeals in order to outvie one another in the magnificence of their
headdresses. When about to attend a court
ball it became necessary for tbem to sit up
the whole of the night and following day
while their elaborate cifTurea were being
executed so that they were sometimes
twenty-four and even thirty-six hours under
Che hands of the coiffeur, who was piling
tier upon tier of ornamentation on their devoted heads.
There are some personal remini.cenc'B of
Qss. Gordon in a recent number of tbe
Nineteenth Century which are interesting
from their obvious sincerity. Mr, Stan-
nard. who contributes tbem, was assistant
to tha manager of the contractors for
the fortifications at Graveseud, and his recollections, while completely agreeing with
what is known from other sources of Gordon's noble life of self sacrifice there, yet
serve to remind ns that Gordon was not
one of those colorless saints who are unredeemed by a single human weakness. Of the
familiar tide of the picture, here is a charming passage. Gordon's house was already
as full of poor boyB as it could hold, when another ragamuffin applied fnr addtnittance.
He was put up accordingly in an empty
stall in the stable, and at 6 o'clock sharp
next morning "the Colonel mode his appearance, carrying a lump of soap, a bath
towel, a broth, and a sponge. He called
the little vagabond out into the yard, and
having poured a pail of hot water into the
trough, he then and there stripped his
young friend and gave him a thorough
cleansing from head to foot "

The number nf cities or boroughs in
England which provide a residence for
their Chief Magistrate is few. York

To incarcerate a man as a lunatic in
Denmark nothing is required but a oar
tificate from a competent medical
practitioner stating that the individual
is question is insane. Any one in
Denmark is entitled to keep a private
asylum with jut license, and the patients
in such asylum are not under stale control. Denmark has an excess of lunatics
due chieSy to the -'caudinavian hulni
of constant dram drinking. They are
well cared for in spite ofthe defect of
the lunacy laws.
She Journal of tlte Ministry of Finance', a
Russian paper, gives some interesting
particularsconcerniiigthe trade between
Russia and (.'hint. In 1806 Kussiaonlv received 80,000 poudsnf teaper annum, in
1855 theftinoiuit had risen to225,000poods
and in 1883 it wns no less than  813,000
poods.    I'.nl in sp it I' nil the assistancc
rendured to merchants by the Government of St. Petersurg, Ru-siuiis exports
into China have fallen oft'from six and a
half million roubles in 185510 two and

At the Viennese Dog Show there is an
attraction in the shape of some Sahara greyhounds, exhibited hy Couut Festetics. They
are powerful and ferocious looking animals,
of tawny color, and were used in Africa
for hunting gazelles. An Arab is in at ton
dance nu these dogs who ore all provided
with Arab certificate., attesting tho purity of
their breed. Interesting, too, ure some longhaired I'n-i i in greyhounds used fur wolf
hnuting. It is said lhat the Sahara l.o n s

The latest experiment in the organization of industry comes from Russia,
where the employees at the large engineering works belonging to the firm
of Struve A Co. have recently been
planted in a complete settlement, somewhat like Pullman City, near Chicago.
The workmen, of whom there are between :;,.'iniiaiiil -I 000, are lodged in small
cottngeB, most of which are made to accommodate two familieaonly,while the public
institutions of the colony include a refectory, a laundry, a hospitul, a benefit
society, a technical school, and a cooperative store. The employers contribute handsomely to the benefit society,
but I'hurity in any other form is quite
unknown in the place, and the co-oper-
utive society pays a nourishing dividend.
Land and Water says the common
belief that ivy trained against the wall
of adwelliug house produces damp walls
and general unliealthiiiess, is fiiliii-.-ioun
The very opposite in this case. If oue
will carefully examine an ivy clad wall
after a shower of rain, lie will notice that
while the overlapping leaves have con
ducted the water from point to point
until it hai reached the ground, beneath is perfectly dry and dusty. More
than this, the thirsty shoots which force
their way into every crevice of the
structure which will afford a firm hold,
act, like suckers, in drawing out any
particles of moisture foi their own nourishment, The ivv, in fact, acts like a
greatcoat, keeping the house from wet,
and warm. One more virtue it has, in
giving to the ugliest stiucturean evergreen beauty.
Dover, formally Melbourne, House,
London, which it is proposed to appropriate as the official residence of the
Prime Minister, is eminently suited for
the purpose. It was built alwut 1770 for
.-ir Matthew Fetherstonhangh, and sold
at his death to the fiist Lord Melbourne
who died there in 1828. Lord Melbourne
was father of tbe Prime Minister Melbourne and Lady Palmerston, and dur
ing his time it was a head centre of
high life. Byron, who had a very
great regard tor Lady Melbourne, was
a frequent guest here. Pitt, Lord Grey
Lord Beaconsfield, and Mr. Gladstone
are the only Prime Ministers who have
in this century made a home ofthe official residence in Downing street, which
is quite unworthy of occupant* of such
position. Mr. Gladstono presumably
quitted bis beautiful house on Carlton
House terrace, in view of having so
large a family to provide for.
The Correctional Tribunal of tbe
Seine has just given judgement in an
action brought against a medical man for
violation ofprofessionsl secrets. A discussion having arisen as to the cause of the
death of Mr. Bastein Lepage the
famous painter, Dr. Watelot. who attended him in his last illness, wrote a
.letter to Le Matinin which the malady in
question wasttated. Upon this the representatives of M Bastien Lepage took proceedings. The defendant pleaded that
he meant no harm; but the court while
admitting that he waa actuated by no
unworthy motives, sentenced him to
pay a fine of 100 francs, and tbe manager of the Matin to pay one of sixteen
francs. The Tribunal laid down .the
principle that to constitute a misdemeanor it was not necessary that mische-
vious intentions rilronkl be proved.
Even if a professional secret had been
revealed with a laudable object the misdemeanor would none the less exist.
