but how was 1 to make myself sun-
of that fact? Early nexl morning,
some hours hefore Lenoir w..» iu the
lml.it of rising, I hunt.'d up Sergeant
Smith and had a long consultation wiih
him. Unknown to himself, Lenoir was
watched that day, from the moment of
his leaving the house till the moment
of his return. Acting or. Smith's
advice, I took up my position on the
ladder this evening a couple of hours
earlier than usual. Lenoir came home
at eleven, a most uiisual proceeding
with him, and brought with him a bottle of cognac. Having lighted his lamp,
took the roll of notes out of iu hiding-place and stuffed it, for the time
being, under his pillow. Hardly was
Ihis done when I heard a low, peculiar
whistle. Lenoir heard it also. He
went quickly downstairs, opened the
front door, und presently came back,
followed by a stranger. The liot.le of
cognac was opened and the contents
approved of, and then, the two men «at
down to busini'ss.one on each side of the
little table, with the lamp between ihem.
They spoke in low tones, and in French.
The stranger waa there to buy the notes,
the numbers of which were known, but
which he presumably had the means of
toning into circulation, either on the
(Joui inent or across lhe Atlantic. The
question which he and I-cooir were
arguing now was simply one of price
At lengih tliey came to terms, and the
roll of notes was produced. The
..ranger checked ihcm oH can-fully
against a list which he had brouglu
witb him, and then put them awav imo
un inner pocket. "The gold is at iny
lodgings, 1 heard liim say. "Come
with me, and you can have it at once.1'
•'Why didn't you bring it with you?"
asked I.ennir, sulkily. "It was too
leavy,"  said   the   other,   laconically.
'Betide. "    "You did not. care   to
trust   yourself here with so much hard
ash   about   you,'' sneered the Kieneli-
raan.__.he.oo_i uphishnl.    The stranger
only   laughed and lit   another   cigar
ette.
Lenoir than extinguished his lamp,
and the two men went downstairs together and let themselves out it the

Though possessed of no actual
pat. nt of nobility, the Fosbrookes of
Fwluooke Manor held their heads as
high, and were as proud of their long
pedigree, as any baronet in the country.
And with good cause ; so many inter
marriages with right noble dames weie
emblazoned on that ro'l, so broad were
the acres over which the Squire held
manorial and territorial sway, so line a
specimen of Tudor architecture was his
.-rand old mansion, that the lord of the
manor it represented might well be
pardoned if he lioasted the hlu<- Wood
which had come to him through succes
sive maternal veins, and forgot that he
held no other   lordship.
The Fosbrookes of Fosbrooke, how
ever, were not given to boasting. They
had lieen -.quires of the land for so
many generations that their position
was "assured, and needed no trumpet-
longue to proclaim it. I em myself a

loveliness of life and nature. Unknown to Squire or Uame, their sou

be, proud of his art, fostered I he vouth's
enthusiasm, all unwitting of mischief
Thus it chanced that when the rising
painter returned to the metropolis,
after a prolonged stay in the ancient
Manor House, he lefi behind a pupil
longing to emulate his master, as well
as a group of pictures in the oaken
gallery,
Then it was discovered that Rupert
dabbled in pigments ; but so long as he
only handled his brush for amusement,
he might copy the old pictures nu the
walls, group together nil tngi- children,
or case a groom iu armour from the
ataircase, and transfer to the panels of
his chamber his crude imaginings of
art, with no further token of disapprobation than the contemptuous laughter
of his father and brother, who regarded
a fox's brush as a trophy, hut a
painter's as the mere tool of a crafts
man. Vet the very taunts and sar
casms which followed the young laggard
in the hunting held, the uiisportsiiiun
like shot iu woods or stubble, drove
hini for refuge to the solitude of his
own chamber,  und  for  solace to   the
art condemned by those around him.
lint not until Hupeit declined to lie
a soldier did opposition nulmina'e and
wrath grow fierce. in vain did the
good mother plead with son and sire;
iu vain did Reginald urge his brother
io renounc" his degrading pursuit as a
slur on their ancient lineage and es
cutcheoii, holding up the unuy as the
only outlet for a Fosbrooke.
Rupert was as persistent as his elder
brother, as resolute as his father was
venoment; an argumentation emiing
witii the lirm resolve: "1 will not
lay down my brush for a sword.''
"Then by heaven I'll make a lionliie
of your painting rattletraps! No son
of mine shall spend his days in daubing
canvas to disgrace us all!" cried the
old Squire iu his wrath.
Presently there was a great blaze in
the courtyard, lhat seemed to flame
again in the dark eyes of Rupert, who
stood in the doorway with knitted
brows and folded arms, a lire kindling
in his heart as all his treasures went to
feed the holocaust.
His lip curled. "Ay, burn theni,
au' yon will ; I shall Ik* a painter notwithstanding."
"Vou paint no more in Fosbrooke
Manor, Master Rupert," replied his
father, with decision. "There is your
comnraion, take il or leave ii. I.ut if
you leave it quit Fosbrooke at once anil
"for ever. See then if brush or sword
be best to light your way with.''
"Wii   may   oasl    the   i lissiun

following his distressed mother, "if
ever you put a living fool on this lines
hold whilst I'm above ground, I'll have
you pitched oui    neck   and   crop, you
ungrateful whelp."
Reginald stood apart, but made no
sign of Interposition Rupert turned,
"At your bidding, sir, I go.    Fbalxtioke
Manor is now no place for me Hut,
living or dead, I shall come back to my
home sonic day, and none shall say nie
nay when next I paint beneath iis
oof."
He sought his sorrowing mother, ami
clung to her embrace, but, proud and
persistent as his kin, tore himself away.
In half an hour he was on lhe road to
London, with uaugin but what his steed
could carry, anil his mother's tearful
blessing.
Squire Fosl.ro ike dosed the ehamlier
of his degenerate son, and the avenues
of his heart. He made a will iu which
he utterly renounced him, and thenceforth woe betide the luckless wight who
dared lo speak of Rupert in   his hear
ine
He bad lieen his favourite chil■!, the
son of his age—a pr-sse of &ris ha([
come between Reginald and hun—and
the wrench made in a moment of anger
set his heart-strings quivering for
ever. Hut a Fosbrooke of Fosbrooke
was never known to yield where the
family honor was concerned, and
silence as of the grave closed over Rupert's name withm Ihe shadow of the
Manor If ever a whisper reached the
mother s ear that he had   found a wei-

Squire Fosbrooke ami his heir had
lifvn out with tin- hounds since
dawn. The London carrier's waggon
creaked slowly along a by lane to the
baek of the great house, anil there sur
rendered a square, unwieldy, Hat packing case, over which cunjeeiure wasted
itself, until the while haired dame,
yielding less to the i-iirimisiiv of her
grandchildren and iheir mother. Lady
Annabel, than to some unconquerable
impulse within  her elf, gave orders for
the forcing of  the lid.   Whatever lay
within    was covered by a thick  cloth,
ou wliich was inscribed in bold charae-
tei-s :
"Bt'PBBT roaBROOKK- ADDITION nr Tin-;
t-'AMILV  POBTBAITS."
The elder ladv blanched to her very
lip. With gesture rather than word
she onlored the renioviil of lhe cover
the while the children crowded round
in wonderment, und lady Annabel
drew herself up disdainfully.
There, limned by no tyro, the discarded son of the house looked oul
from the canvas, old. r. manlier, nobler
than of old, palette and brushes in
baud, a tine boy's head before him on
an easel : and by his side, with lingers
lightly resting on his shoulder, a
woman  lovely  us a painter's dream,
Xj Dead the written legend 10 declire
that Rupert s w if.' and son were also
there pourtrsyed : or that his had heen
the artist hand.
"Rupert Fosbrooke, Maud his wile,
and Rupert his son," read Reginald s
eldest boy. "Why, grandmother, who
are t hey'.'"
"Your uncle, and your aunt anil
cousin, child," sobbed the bereaved old
lady In broken accents, whilst the servants drew respectfully apart and

Seei,|,iJ.

At once
on
Iquire's   whip
whispered beneath their breath
Annabel   plucked her
saying :
"Uncle and aunt, forsooth I They
are neither kith nur kin of mine, boy.
No common painter's doll-faced wife
claims affinity with nie I"
"l.iidy Annabel," said the elder,
gathering up her form, "Rupert Fosbrooke is my dear son. I never dis
owned him. I will not disown the fair
mate he has rliosen. He would never
MOOD to one unworthy.'1
'Sioop ! He hud sunk to the portrait painter's level ere he wedded his
master's niece. I heard so much.
I madam, when I was last in town So
saying. Lady Annabel swept awav to
give her liltie ones a lesson in pride of
birth, and obliterate, if possible, iln-
pictured relatives frum   remembrance,
Lady Amiable was no favourite with
tbe old servants and dark eyed Unpen
had   been.
Reverently they obeyed I'    Pos
hrnnke'a behest, and carrying the picture
into the long dining room, sel ir up.
right against the tapestried wall hy iln-
side of the OarVad blllli't.
As the Squire entered with a troop
of hungry hunting friends, lhe pic in,
caught his sight. Fur a fee* moments
he stood gazing upon il with changing
colour and breath that came and wmi ;
then, raisingthe whip he held, he struik
at the ligures fiercely, whilst he de
iiianded hoarsely whohtii dared to bravo
him thus ; and bade the servants haul
it forlh and burn ii.
There was a bonfire blazing in the
yard wbibi. the Squire and his Monde
supped, ami I-sdy Annabel looked on
with stern satisfaction from an upper
window. Iinl the packing-casi' alone
was burned. The picture itself had
been quietly smuggled into the doted
chamber of th- artisl, and lhe good
Mote's secret was well kept: nor for
foe or reward, hut for love of Barbara
Fosbrooke and her youngest born.
Four yeara Hume Barbara kept tha-
secret, along with others, in her hear.:
and then, lying on her death-bed, ahe
broke the long silence and prayed ibat
Rupert might be summoned to rlosu
her dying eyes.
It may he that the Squire was likewise
wearying for a sight of his discarded
son. and only lacked a pretext
for his recall, for he was no
longer obdurate. No doubt in his
hidden s-ml he had long repented his
hasty orders anent the picture, and
blamed the too -obedient executants of
his will. Wi.h barely a show of hesita
tion he consented but Reginald and
Lady Annabel, to. crafty to demur,
too proud to own ii painter for a brother,
tllle.l  r.liStaciis    ill    the way.     """'	
her account, he said.
Himself wrote a burried letter of recall.
Reginald became officiously
active, lb- despatched a trusty mes
sepger wi.J) ihiA'/Hinture' *^*tfailf*-*»
ears were closed to any message lie
might  bring.
Hays noiii hy. The white haired
Squire paced the corridors as auxiouslv
evp.-. taut as- thesii-k lady in the sta a
bed llut the shifty or irritable
answetsof Reginald to her enquiries
Iiml aroused suspicion of treachery.
As the end drew nigh, ihe insisted
on being carried to Rupert s chamber
as lhe only chance of seeing lhe fac* of
her lost son.
They I bought her mind was wandering. Her uie niiug was clear enough
to tle-iii a'l when her chair was placed
iu frnii*. of Rupert's picture, which yel
bora llu- mark of the S,
rt, toss its surface.     1^^^^^^^^^^
Not more eagerly did Barbara Fos
bnioke's filming eyes trace the well-
remembered lineaments of herbanishe i
son that did those of the old Squire, in
whom sffection had seemed so long
dead ; whilst Reginald and Annabel
looked lost in amazement.
Life's   lire relit   in Barbara's   wan
features as she gazed : Strength came to
her   anew.    She   kissed   the   Squire's
brown hand us the other  iliisln-rl   from
his eyes lhe fast gathering tears; and
then  marking the scowl on Reginald's
■i« uit face as he slunk behind her chair,
she lifted up her   whithered hand, and
extending is tow-arils the   picture, said
[inpressiveU, in a voice which  seemed
to have gathered preternatural streng.h
for the eflbrt;    "Rupert,  my   son. 1
call and thou dost not answer :   I have
longed for thee and thou dost, not come.
Hut thou shall   come,  aud  thou   and

Thii oauae coming ou   fnr heariug.    Mr.

to tbe  view which I had   expressed ou the
Interlocutory   application tor an Injunction
on the 4th August last, when 1. in fact. In-I.i
that the proposed works   of the defendant'*-!

opened what   would   probably havu   been a | "gainst what he knows to lie the   decision of
cation of very ordinary words in their everyday sense; not requiting any authority.
Tbe silence of the respondent's coun***.!
shows the wholly fictitious nature of th-
opposition which professedly wus raised
against the company's claims. Aud Mr.
Pooley cited many authorities to show that
judgment* thus obtained are not entitled to
the weight they otherwise would poasesr,
and are Liable to lie criticized, and disregarded in other courts, or in actions between
otlier parties.
Kut to this conclusion 1 sliould not agree
nor should 1 even take bis arguments into
consideration. It is possibly, quite open to
the Supreme Court at Ottawa to listen to
thenc views, and if they see reason to doubt
whether the judgment in Major's case wincorrect or incorrectly arrived at, they may
it they think Ht, reconsider their opinion.
1 do not think it is my province to do so.
If this had lieen the decision of au Knglish
Court, or of a court iu another province, aod
if I learned that it wasa decision without
argument, and a fortiori, if after a sham
argument. I might have examined the
reasounig in the judgment, and if diasatis-
fied with the reasons, I might have de. Im*-..
to follow the decision. Uut thit would be
so, because it Is optional with this court to
adopt or decline the views of an Ontario
Court, (htl the Suuieme Court of Canada

to obey and enforce them. It is not j

very interesting and valuable argument,
commencing with the original negotiations
for a transcontinental railway indicated by
the Terms of Union, citing documents contained in many Yellow Books and published
in tbe Sessional papers trom Ottawa ; when
I called his attention to a recent decision of
tlie Supreme Court of Cauada in the case of
Major v. (M'.K. Company, aud asked
whether tbat was not an authority binding
oo me, and decisive in favor of the defence
setup by the C.P.R. Company in this
action. Mr. Pooley argued that that decision was uot binding on me, inasmuch us
it was a judgment arrived at without argument, or rather worse, after an imperfect
aud simulated argument, in a friendly hu tt.
launched aud carried into the Supreme
Court forthe purpose of betraying that court
iuto a misconceived opinion. That the
whole of the report of the proceedings, (so
fur as they were accessible), the arguments
of the counsel on hoth sides, as well as the
reasons stated by the court in giving judgment, plainly showed this ; uot the least
attention having been paid to the opinions
of the judge here in the case under Appeal,
but the whole argement being directed to
my own observations on the interlocutory
application of the 4th AuguBt, iu this case);
which was not before the court at Ottawa.
That many facts and arguments which a
ttfatajute respondent would have urged are
entirely omitted, the court above being Left
under entirely false impressions. For instance, one main point upon which the entire judgment turns, is (as reported) thnt a
clause in a subsequent act of parliament,
apparently inconsistent with a clause in a
previous act, repeals the previous clause hy
implication, and that the sub-section in the
General Act of 1879, which forbids an extension by a railway company beyond ita
terminus, was therefore repealed by a clause
in the act of 1881, enabling this company to
construct branches from any point along its
Une to any other point iu Canada : whereas
it should have lieen pointed out to the court
that there is no question here of a previous
or a subsequent act; the very same act of
1881, which empowers the defendant's company to build branches expressly introduces
and reiterates the prohibition against extensions beyond termini. Neither was the
argument founded on the doctrine of eminent domain noticed in the judgment, which
was, however, Indicated by Mr. Richards, Q.
C, as amicus curiae.; and yet it fairly de-;
served attention ; being shortly this • The
grant of these powers to enter and take laud
is an exercise purely of eminent domain, and
can only operate, and indeed, can he only
intended to operate, on soil over which the
Legislature making the grant is sovereign.
But the Domiuion Legislature and executive
has no sovereigu rights over the soil in any
province, these being reserved to the province itself by the B.N.A. Act; and the
grant of the powers by the'Dominion parliament to enter, etc., on land can only he intended of Dominion territory i.e. the track
between Manitoba and British Columbia,
and if intended to apply elsewhere, is uucon
stitutioual. Nor is legislative sanction wanting, Mr. Pooley said, for either of the views
thus put forward. Kor in 1884, when the
defendant's company wished to make an extension eastwards, they sought and obtained
legislative authority for the purpose ; (Canada, 1884, c. 8) which they would not have
asked, nor would the Legislature have
granted, if the company already possessed
the power now claimed of making such an
extension by simply calling it a "branch."
That the government of Britiah Colombia*
and also the defeudants's company themselves, have acted on the same views up to
the time of the proceedings which originated
these suits ; the government having by
notice in the GootW here In May, iss-i,
thrown open to occupation all the lauds
west ofthe terminus at Port Moody ; to
which the defendant's company never objected, hut on the contrary, accented from
the Oovernment of British Columbia a grant
nf 6000 acres of this very land as an induce
iiieut to them to extend aud add to their
parliamentary line, and, iu the language of
the agreement of 23d February, IKS,"., to
change tbeir terminus ; the idea of calling
the proposed new works by any other name
thau an extension never having occurred to
anybody until the prospect of this litigation.
So also the act, Canada 1885, e. 57, expressly takes notice that the C.P.R. includes
the main line, the branches, aud the extensions, (s 1) distinguishing between these
last and tbe next following, act (c. 58, 1885,
a. 4.) expressly terms the proposed addition
to the line in the Province of Quebec an
"extension." And as to statutory authority
for the views proposed by Mr. Pooley concerning the rights of eminent domain, iu the
set of 1881, c. 14, which enlarged the
original boundaries of the Province of Manitoba there is an express reservation of the
rights previously granted to th'* C. P. K. in
the land within such enlarged boundaries ;
which would not have been necessary, nor
expressed, unless Parliament had been fully
of opinion that such grants were of "eminent
domain," and so, without some moti reservation, could not take efteut within a Pro
vince.. That us to the sentimental bias in
favor of a great national undertaking, whatever were the undeniable merits and valne
of the C.P.R. as a whole, this particular line
of 14 miles waa no part of the national
Parliamentary undertaking, the extent and
termini of which—all that Parliament
deemed of national importance—were already determined. This projected under-
taking is purely a private work superadded
to the already completed Parliamentary
line, au operation by a commercial company
for its own advantage, to secure to itself a
tract of 6,000 acres, and to enhance the
value of that tract. That Major's land was
in Vancouver townsite, and it was for his interest that the compauy should come, not
that they should lie restrained ; that he
never had resisted the company at ..11, and
that the expenses of his counsel were paid
by the compauy. AM these grounds, Mr.
Pooley urged, and many other matters,
were not even hinted at iu any way in the
argument or judgment in Major's case ; and
they surely are worthy of being at least put
forward. They were not put forward here
on the 4th Auguat, because the question WM
than treated aa   being merely on  the appli-
the Superior Court, merely because be thinks
he knows better than they do. Now the
decision in Major's case was not on the construction of au (*analagous or somewhat
similar act of parliament, but of this very
act. It was not concerning other defend
antei but concerning this very compauy ; nor
concerning other works, branches or extensions, but concerning this very stretch of
14 miles from Port Moody to Coal Harbor.
It is as nearly as possible a judgment in rents
being a decision that this act of Parliament
of 1881 enables this company to construct
this line to Coal Harbor. I am bound to
accept that decision|as correct. That being
su, the company must have all the powers
nececsary for affecting that construction ;
and thoy may exercise such powers compul*
Rorily ; and the plaintiffs are entirely wrong
in their contention. 1 think ita necessary
conclusion from the recent decision in
Major's ease that the plaintiffs never had
any right to institute this action, or to get
their Injunction of the 4th August, and I
dismiss their action with costs. Tbe defendants' costs of re-dating the interlocutory
injunction both before mound the Divisonal
Court, will also have to be paid by tho
plan.till*-., so far asi can at present deal with
them.
1 may say that I feel all the more confident that I understand the decision in
Major's case by reason of two circumstances
ou which Mr. Pooley relied iu asking mc to
disregard it. 1st. The court above sucm to
have paid little regard to other decisions arrived at here, but to have been very anxious
to point out that my interlocutory judgment
of the 4th August, iu this very case of I'M
moods v. (.'. P. It. and the reasons there assigned were altogether erroneous; in fact,
us reported, the judgment is rather in this
case than in Major's. 2nd. The court were
not unanimous, but were divided as 4 to 1.
A court is always so desirous of unanimity
that it is ouly after a very full discussion
and interclmugo of views tbat they finally
agree to differ, It is, therefore, to be presumed that tho various acts of parliament
und other matters were thoroughly sifted
and delta ted by the judges, among themselves, although Major's counsel seems certainly, as reported, to have been very frugal
in his argument in court.— Victoria Times.

A QUESTIONABLE STATOE OF JOAN
OF AKC.
Antiquaries have beeu much puzzled of
late respecting the authentic.Ly of au equestrian statue iu sculptured wood of Joan of
Arc, which forms one of the curiosities of tho
Cluuy Museum. According to the catalogue prepared by M. du Summerard, the
statue has all the appearance of having been
carried about iu religions processions at
Moiiten.au, where it was ditcovercd. Now
comes an uld inhabitant of Montereau, M.
Qnetveres, who is im great an antiquary as
Muiil.h.ini*. himself, denies the truth of M.
du Suinmcrard's assertions, and positively
states that the pseudo Joan of Arc is in reality a St, Maurice. Hence commotion
among the keepers of the museum, The
Moutereau MonkbaniH says that the statue
woe a relic of the old parish church of St.
Maurice, which Wns destroyed during the
great revolution. It was touched up by a
decorator, who sold it to a dealer for £2.
Ile hud it transformed into a stutue of the
Maid of Orleans, and it was bought hy the
Cluuy Museum for £'20. The St. Maurice
alluded to was the chief of the Thebam
legion, alleged to have been slaughtered hy
the KniDcror Maximilian iu the valley of the
Peniue Alps. Sliould M. Quesveres' terrible
insinuation be proved to have a true foundation, it will be consoling to reflect that
wealthy English collectors are not the only
persons who are victimized hy sharp Parisian brocantours, and that even a French
connoisseur of accepted authority may sometimes be caught fn' the trap as easily as was
Don Quixote with the barber's basin, which
he took for the helmet of Mambriuo, or Mr.
Pickwick with the wonderful stone engraved by Bill Stumps. — London Tent*

ACCURACY IN LEVELLING.
Remarkable accuracy ii now attained by
engineers iu cutting tunnels through mountains, working from both ends. Thus at the
MuBConetcong tunnel, on the Lehigh Valley
railroad, the alignment tested to0.04 foot,or
leas thau _■ an inch. In this case levels were
run over a mountain 5,000 feet long and 450
feet above the line -. also into the tuunel at
each em! about 2,500 feet to the point where
the headings meet. They tested to 0.015
foot, or less thau 1 5 inch. The chaining
carried by steel tape measurements over the
same distance tested, on the headings coming together, to 0.52 foot, or 0-4 inches.
This accuracy is to a large extent a development of recent years. Tn the annals of tne
state of Pennsylvania (Pennsylvania state
improvements—main line) it is mentioned as
a remarkable specimen of accurate levelling
that in a circle of 12 miles that was levelled
the error was only 1.2 foot. This was in
1824. Aboutllfty years afterward, or in 18/8,
United States engineers engaged in running
a line of levels between the Chesapeake and
Delaware bays, for the purpose of determining the feasibility of a ship canal, tested
some new levelling instruments furnished by
the Oovernment. A line of test levels was
run over 10 miles, and the difference of level
on the closing bench mark was only 0.005
foot.

LCUtS XIV.
I'he secret of tho Great; King's greatness
lies in his fashion of understanding tlie duties
of kingship. " I am the state," he said ;
aud he meant it, and ruined himself and his
people in the attempt to live up to the expression. Under him Versailles was nmln'li.
mt f/idlice—the very navel of France. In
him everything was centralised; from him
everything proceeded ; he was the cause,and
his kingdom only au effect. Conde und
Turenne were personal emanations from him;
Moliereaud itacino were but his expressions
in druma; iu Bojleau ho wrote verse; be
governed inColbertanJLouvois ; he painted
in Mignard and Le Brun. Whatever was
done was not only douo in his name, but depended absolutely upon his influence. He
made a man minister for a good stroke of
billiards ; for how oould his nominee do
wrong? His life was a perpetual apotheosis.
He surrounded himself with reminders of
hin glory ; among pictures of his divinity,
among heroic statues of himself, among
trophies of victory so insolent that they
could only be avenged in war, existence
moved for him in a solemn procession of self,
worship ; and when he turned from the consideration of i Im ki- anticipations of immortality, it was to meet the adoring eyes of
men and women whose hearts he could, and
did often, break with a single frown. In
the contemplation of his own dignity he
lived and moved and had his being. It waa
the principal fact of the universe; aud he
imposed it as snch upon bis people alike.
There was no flattery so gross as to seem unnatural, no adnlation so fulsome . as not to
lie appropriate and welcome. The kings,
the lmroes, the gods and demi-gods of antiquity had lived, it seemed, but to be honored in his likeness, uud admired in hin
udnrmuenta. He was Apollo, he was Hercules, he was Jupiter in turn; one after
another all the greatnesses nf the past were
presented iu hia image, like him high-nosed,
and like him bewigged ; M. Geuevay has

CAUGHT IN A.SIERRA STORM.
About two p. in., as we were looking out
for a camping ground, a thunder-storm
again burnt upou us. We hurried ou, searching among tho huge boulders (probably
glacial boulders) to Hnd a place of shelter
Tor our provisions and ourselves. At laat
we found a huge liouldier, which overhung
on oue side, leaning against a large tree.
The roaring of the coming storm grows
louder and louder, the pattering of rain already begins. "Quick! quic!.! In a few
seconds tlie pack was unsaddled, aud pro
virions thrown tinder shelter ■ then rolls of
blankets quickly thrown after them; then
the horses unsaddled aud tied ; then, at
last, we ourselves, though already wet,
crowded under. It was an interesting and
somewhat amusing sight—all our provisions
and blanket rolls, and eleven meu packed
away, actually piled one upou another, under
a rock which did not project more than two
aud a half feet. I wish I could draw a
picture of the scene : the huge rock with its
dark recess; the living, squirming mass,
piled confusedly beneath ; tne magnificent
forest of grand trees ; the black clouds ; the
constant gleams of lightning, revealing the
scarcely visible faces ; the peals of thunder,
and the floods of raiu pouriug from the pro-
i'acting rock, on the projecting feet and
:nees of those whose legs were inconveniently long, or even on the beads and backs
of some who were less favored in position.
In about an hour the storm passed, the
men again came out, and we selected camp.
Beneath a huge prostrate tree we soon
started a fire, and piled log upon log until
the flame, leaping upwards, seemed determined to overtop the huge pines around.
Ah! what a joy is a huge camp lire! not only
ita delicious warmth to one wet with rain in
this high, cool region, but ita cheerful light,
its joyous crackling and cracking, its frantic
dancing and leaning. How the heart warms
and dances and nrightens, and leaps in concert with the camp-fire!~--/o»<7*/* Le Vonte, in

Not hading it, he observed I "Some infernal
thief bas stoleo my cup." Theu, sticking
his head Into tlie tent, he asked : " Auy of
you gentlemen got it?"

"Certainly." "Well, I have drawn a pen-

But Mr. MoCawber had gone to the nearest

It ia stated that a new device has been in
troduoed in many of the Genuao hospitals
which admits fresh air, while at the same
time it prevents a draft. If such au invention could be brought into general uae in
residences, hotels, public halil, passenger
coaches, street oars, etc., throughout the
United States, it would come much nearer
filling a long-frit want than does the advent
of many new-bora newspapers. TM invention is made by a German engineer
named Henkels, and consists of a ventilating window-pane, each aquare meter con-
taming five thousand holes, of a conical
shape, widening toward the inside, and Ite-
Ing so regulated as to produce the desired
result. Some such contrivance should be
generally utilized.
MARVELS   WROUGHT  WITHOUT
MIRACLES.
We are told that miracles have ceased.
Possibly they may have been discontinued iu
order to give full scope to human intelligence. Certain it is tnat the woudcrful developments and achievements of science iu
theae latter days have rendered direct supernatural in human affairs unnecessary. This
is especially true of tbe improvements in
Metttcal Science. Two thousand years ago
Thomas Holloway would probably have
been deemed a worker of miracles. The
cures effected by his Pills and Ointment
would have been considered supernatural.
Even now they are looked upon as marvels ; yet we know that the medicines which
hare healed thu sick iu all parts of the
world are the legitimate fruits of profound
thought, unwearied study and research, aud
a long series of practical experiments. It is
a singular fact, and one that establishes be
yond question Holloway's theory of a common origin of disease, that the people of
every country in which his medicaments
have been introduced have considered thein
specially adapted to the complaints most
common in such couutry. The reason is
that they operate upon the deleterious principles in the blood of the patient, which is
tbe immediate cause of his disorder, whatever It mav be, aud hcuce their effect is
alwaya aalutory. In Canada every settler
ou new land who has ever tried them in intermittent or bilious remittent fever, will
aver that there are no diseases in which
tbey work such wonders as in these. The
Canadians also are impressed with tho belief that the cutaneous and glandular dis
orders to which violeut extremes of heat und
cold render them peculiarly subject, are
moro readily eradicated by the Ointment
than any other diseases for which it is
prescribed. It is in evidence, however,
that just what these great remedies arc
doing for Canada, they are doing for all
nations under tho sun. It so happens indeed
that tbe ailments upon which the preparations excite the moat direct and powerful influence are precisely thoae which are the
chief scourges of British America, and hence
they seem to be, and In one sense are, more
especially required in that region than iu
some other countries. Bnt their unbounded
celebrity, and the enormous increase of the
demand for them in all our colonies, indicate
their value more significantly than auy
eulogiam that we could bestow. W ithiu a
few years they have become staples of the
medical market throughout North America.
The constant inquiry for them renders it in
expedient for any drug house or apothecary's
shop to be without them. The druggist
who does not keep them, makes, in effect, a
tacit admission that he is unacquainted with
the wants of his customers. His stock ia
not merely incomplete; ft lacks two essential
articles which the sickjim»-i/ and -rill have
from some source or other.
Such popularity as this is the meed only
of superlative oicellencp, aod it places the
Miperiority of Holloway's Uemkdieh beyond
all controversy.—Thr Slocutioner.
A RUSSIAN VOLCANO.
Not long ago tbe town of Baku was threatened with partial destruction hy the sudden
outburst of a natural uanhtha fountain,which
swamped a number of buildings and, for
some days, waa quite unmanageable. Now
a volcano of earth and hot mud has broken
out about ten miles from the town, ou the
l.ok Batan, close to the Ponta railway
station,aud on the night of the 15th of January the inhabitants of Baku were alarmed
by a shock like that of an explosion, which
made all their window-panes tremble violently, while, toward tne southwest, the
sky was illuminated by an intense light, as
of aome terrific   conflagration.      A   similar
Flu*nomeiiot- occured on the following night,
t was toon -Uncovered that an eruption
from Lok Batan hid taken place, 'and the
following iuformation waa furnished by the
railway officials of Ponta station :
"Quite suddenly, at 11 o'clock at night,
the noise of an explosion was heard, aud the
summit of Lok Batan shot up au enoimnus
column of fire, some 350 feet high. The
whole country was instantly lit up lighter
than day, and the heat could lie felt at
nearly a mile from the crater. There was
scarcely any wind, so that the column cen-
tinued to ascend quite vertically, carrying
with it, aa could be seen, large black substances, which appeared to fall again into
the volcano. This lasted, with short intervals of subsidence, all through the night,and
tbe following twenty-four hours, but luckily
the matters ejected did not reach the railway
station."
The volume of muddy liquid thrown out
is estimated at 500,000 cubic aojenes—the
Russian tojene equaling seven feet—and has
spread itself over more than a square mile,
to a depth of from seven to fourteen feet."—

"Lord Salisbury's speech is full of his

l capital: but,  the  probability of Island
:i separation of the Island and Mainland
une- nunc, will be the liest solution of
the difficulty. In order to place tbe
matter in its proper light, wc must look
at the '-irciinisiaiuTs us they are ; it
would be unjust to ourselves and our
readeti to aaaerl the necessity for such
j Kparatioa without deoMMtrating the
:nhis:ibilit> ol Midi a measure. Our
reader* mutt be pretty well aware that
the interests of the Island we reler
parlii ulaily to Victoria    arc OppOied lo
tlmsc of the Mainland.    Wi don not
aiise Irom prejudice or from whal is
called " WCttonal feeling," it is simply
a matter of sclf-prcscn ation. Victoria,
by the misapplication of words, has been
held up as the centre oi tbe Province,
an,l lo confirm tbat impression in the
minds of outsiders, the Government, the
Home Of  Assembly, and the Supreme
source of great expense, much incon
venience, and, as will be seen hereafter,
great injustice lo the Mainland. That
the capital of a great province like
Uritish Columbia should be on the fag
end of an island separated from nine-
tenthl of iis area and the great mass of
its population, by the Gulf ol Georgia, is
a manifest absurdity and no course of
reasoning can be adduced to defend it.
The only defense lhat could be put forward in its favor, would be the fact that
no decided opinion has been expressed
by Mainlanders in favor of a removal
of the capital and that such removal, if
il took place would be destructive to
Victoria. It is true that no sustained
movement has existed with a view to
produce the change, although it has
been mooted from time lo time ; and,
as to the injury such removal would in
diet on Victoria, wc cannot see that
Mainlanders are in any way bound to
sacrifice their personal interests and
convenience, to accommodate property
holders al the present capital. Hut we
contend that great injury will not necessarily follow the establishment ofa capi
ial on the Mainland. The Island is
rich in Minerals, its position on the Pa
cific will always ensure to it a certain
amount of trade and traffic, which will,
in course of time be enormously in
creased. If the l'rovince as it now
stands was  again  divided, the Island
and lhe Mainland possessine each its
separate and distinct governments, Vic
toria would still be a capital and very
probably more prosperous as the capital
of the Island than in the invidious position of capital for lhe whole united
Province. More attention would be
given to the fostering of Island trade ;
immediate efforts would be made lo establish iron manufactures and the valuable coal seams, outside of those
possessed by Huntington, (-'rocker &
Co., would be opened and worked.
We must not be supposed to base our
objections on the evid.nt fact that a
great portion ofthe wealth ofthe Mainland is being drawn to the present capital, and not oidy is it lost to us forever
but our development is being retarded
by the absence of roads, bridges and
other necessary improvements, the
means for which are being swallowed
up by appropriations for Cowichan and
Nanaimo and the construction of new
law courts, jubilee hospital and other
buildings in Victoria. It is very natural
that Ihe people of Victoria should do
the best they can for themselves, and,
it may be, lhat ihey can sec the early
irobabiliiy of the capital being removed
to the Mainland and therefore, the prudence of raking in all the money on any
excuse, for the advantage and improve-
lent of lhe present capital. This is all
very natural, but it is also quite natural
that we on the Mainland should object
to any such disposition of our money,
and seeing the impossibility of contending against the influence of Victoria
while the capital of the entire Province
remains on the Island, we should consider an immediate change absolutely
necessary. There is no way of counteracting Victorian influence while the
capital remains where it is, and although
the members from the Mainland may
be under the glamour of Island fascination on general subjects it is quite likely they would vote for the removal of
the capital lo the Mainland if the subject was brought up in proper form.
That some of them are incorrigible
traitors, wc are aware, but a motion for
tbe removal of the capital would uncover them, and their constituents, be-
members voting solid for Victoria is not
so absolutely certain as some |*eople
would think. Tlie Victoria habit of
counting like the robber -"one io me
and one to you and one to me again "
—has been noted on several parts of
the Island with disfavor; the facts in
favor of the change are so patent that
if properly laid before the House, we
are inclined to think, that if a division
did not result in favor of a change, it
would demonstrate such a considerable
consensus of opinion in its favor that
the whole question could be taken tip in
all its details with every pros*>cct of iis
lieing carried. At all events the
hange will be made, agreeably if |si>si-
rle, but it will be made notwithstanding
any op|iosition on the part of Victoria.

FOREIGN Al'PAIRS.
If we are to place any reliance on a
sensational item copied from a New
York paper, the news from Bulgaria is
of a very disquieting character. It
would ap-iear that the Hulgarian and
Roumania Government! bad received
intelligence of a reliable nature to the
effect lhat  the Czar had decided upon
an . iui-_>--,:-'       ' '    —   _WhI—i-ia
which means the subjugation of Roumania also. Il this should turn out to
be true, the commencement of the
of the great struggle will be upon us in
the course of a week or two, for supremacy not only in Europe, so far as position and territory are concerned, but
over democracy and socialism. Like
every beginning, it gives no indication
of the conclusion, but affords a wide
field for speculation. The professional
habitue of the racecourse, before making his bets, always watches the horses
in going through their preliminary
gallop ; he carefully notes the appearance and action of each animal and
forms his opinion accordingly. So it
may be permitted to us, in regard to
the approaching war to note the good
and bad points about the respective
participants. So far as Russia is concerned, we arc aided in a great measure by a very ably written article in
filackw/mil's Magazine for March.
The writer clearly shows, that the great
northern empire has been very much
over-rated in respect to fighting power.
We have noted in some recent news-
paper article that her army, available
in case of emergency, could be raised
to six millions. If men were born
soldiers and governments had nothing
to do but to thrust rifles into their
hands as soon as they could bear them,
such a calculation would be possible in
Russia, for the population of that great
empire, is computed to be one hundred
and two millions. But the writer re-
erred to, says that at most, except in
case of a general levy when everyone
capable of bearing arms would be
called upon to defend the empire, two
millions three hundred thousand is the
extent of her soldiers. Of these he
does not put much value on more than
about twelve or thirteen hundred thousand. He admits, however, that from
the patient endurance under hardships,
the miserable food in quantity and
quality with which the peasant soldier is
contented, and the consequent facility
of carrying supplies with a moving army,
that the Russian soldiers.are on the
whole passable fighting material, particularly when opposed to half-civilised
races and well led. But the last condition the writer referred to, seems to
think is wanting in the Russian army,
The officers are careless and very cruel
to their men. 'I'he common soldiers
fight because they are brought there lo
do it but entirely without enthusiasm,
so that if opixised to well-drilled European troops, they are not likely to effect
much. The Imperial guard is composed of very fine men and they are
picked from all the rest ol the army ;
they are from sixty to one hundred
thousand strong. The cavalry, regular
and irregular, is good, but in modern
warfare, its terrible charges as recorded
in battles of one hundred years ago, are
no longer dreaded ; the terrible execution of modern artillery renders the
cavalry except for pursuit or reconnois-
sance woise than useless. So that in
spite of numbers, a great cavalry force
and very powerful artillery, the Russians
are not.stronger than the Germans, and
we are inclined lo think that if Russia
and Germany went to war and they
were allowed to fight to a finish, Germany would soon dispose of her big
neighbor. But in the present case
Russia has no idea of quarreling with
Germany, at any rate, for the present,
her object is to crush the two little
kingdoms of Roumania and Bulgaria as
being  in the way to Constantinople.
cient   to   hold   the   Russian ami;   in]
check   till help   < ould arrive   from An
stria or some other of the treaty powers.;
Russia appears from overweening conceit to have played her game very badly.    By the treaty of Berlin she bound
herself to dismantle and destroy .ill the;
lortresses on the Danube.    Rnstchuck, |
Sillistria,   Shumla,   Varna and the resi
of them were to  be razed, so that there;
would be no point J'tippuir for Russian
troops in  case  they thought   proper to (
return to  Bulgaria,    lint lhe   Russian-
disregarded this provision ul  the treaty
and left them in the Bulgarians  whom .
they   regarded   with   the   greatest  con-
tempt,       This   very foolish   act of  despising  an  enemy, will cost ihcm un
dearly, for «c learn that the Bulgarians
and Roumanians are at tiling and garri-'
soning all these fortresses and as they
are    fighting   for   hearth    and   home
against  an enemy far more  bated and
feared than Turkey cvei was, they will
no doubt make a formidable resistance.;
What   is still more,   if  Russia  has the!
temerity to attack them, Prince Alexar-,
der will   undoubtedly be recalled, ami.
we ihink. would respond without a nu'-1
ment's  hesitation.    Wc  are quite sure
ihat if he returned he would not lack i
tortile   very hest  kind of war muiciiul |
and all the pecuniary  aid  he might re-1

iluced ; the farmer who had set hin Inml for
ciopn of llax, and so ruined it for years, was
relieved and cmiiniiaerateil ; whil.- the honent
man who did hin l.iit, ami paid hin rent ou
the adjoioing farm, got nothing. These
plain hints given liy Knglinh legislation have
been unproved u|iou liy liinli iigitatinii. I'he
foinier only rewarded lying anil idling ;
while the   latter plainly   recoinineliiln theln.
It is of the hint moment to the sordid
patriots who uie Woking the life-blood nf

The people have lieen openly nml delilier-

in getting up early, in sowing ami planting
bettmee, in intoning the weather, in keep-
nig down the wei'iln '! If men appear comfortable ami thriving in their fanus, will not
agitation decay, and the National League
die a natural death ? Accordingly, the liinli
peasant ban been really dragged down Into
terrible poverty, not by paying rent, but by
being trained iu idlcucns, lying, and false
sentiment, He in taught to attribute all his
vrrongs, real ami imaginary, to somebody
elne. He is told that he can become licli and
happy by legislation and not by labor. If
thi. In: so, what matter is it whether thin or

war hi-oiight with it a sudden rise of prices,
will the man who bus neither crop noi- stock
on his land protit by it? This is the terrible
futtiie whicli is before us. A generation of
mer, however well disponed and quiet, who
huve been systematically urged both by
empty bombast and solid pride to idle and to
throw the blame of tbeir poverty on some
om: else, will not be untaught these lessons
without terrible distress and suffering. There
will he  despair,   nml   with   it   crime,   the
natural consequence of despair.   There will
be more expatriation and expropriation than
was ever tlreinit of by any legislator, But
the real blame will rest not upon the landlords, however their foolish harshness and
still more foolish weakness may I ave 11* .-

speecli delivered in the Lower House of the
Hungarian lliet said that since the Austro-
Hungarian extra military credits had lieen
voted the peaceful hopes tiitcrtained by the
Government had been fortified. TheQovern-

equally desirous of peace, kept themselves
prepared for war. Sacrifices made for the
army, Hut Tisza declared, had been well
employed, for the military strength of the
monarchy was now as efficient as that of any

A missionary stationed oh au island in
Terra del.Fuego says there is a fair division
of labor between the men and women, but
one curious custom exists. The men make
and fit up the cannon, hut the women are tho
rowers. The result is that the women arc
good Muimmers, but tho men cannot swim at
all. The reason is that often on the const
there is not a'single treo ou which to fasten
the canoes. The woi.ieu, therefore, after
lauding their husbands, have to row the
canoes to a spot where seaweed has been
■n.-tv,- il together, in order to moor the canoes
thereon ; after which operation they nre compelled to swim back. Su, also, whon the
canoe id wauted, the women have to swim
out for it and row back for their hust>amls.
At a dinner given by the Clothwnrkers
Company in London, the Duke of Cambridge,
in the course of his reply to the toast of
"The Army," said "it was a matter of vital
importance to civilians that the services
should he kept iu a .tit ■ of efficiency,
They ought to lie maintained in a way which
should insure the safety of the Empire.
This view, he maintained, ought to be sup
ported by every man no matter what his political opinions might be. A good deal was
said iu some quarters aliout 'our bloated
army,1 when as a matter of fact every
country, including neutral States like Belgium and Switzerland, wis arming to the
teoth while we wero doing nothing. The
reason why the Estimates were larger than
of yoru was the incessant progress of science,
which was for over rendering necessary
changes in our war material. The effects
produced upon the stock markets of the
world by the rumors of war iu the last few
weeks ought to suffice to show the
importance of being prepured for bos
tilitics. Commercial prosperity depended upon security, and to insure security
the services must l-e in a condition to perform their duties efficiently. The fact that
foreign nations were increasing their armaments ought not to be considered lightly.
Depend upon it, there was something iu the
wind. At u time so critical it Wonld be
sheer folly to take any step which would
result in the. diminution of the efficiency of
our lighting forces."

Constable Iv Muran, of the Queensland police. Having l>een transferred to Isiaford,
he left Arrilalah for that place, but nothing
was heard of him for 10 days when news
was brought to Arrilalah by a casual traveller that Morau hod not been heard of at
Isisford. The officer iu charge of the police
there at once dispatched trooper tjuain and
a black boy to find out what bad become of
him. Mr. Clark, overseer at Westlauds,
wits informed by a Isiundary lider that he
had observed the tracks of a man iu one of
the Westlauds paddocks, -.ml, from the aimless manner in whicli the tracks seemed to
go round and about, the boundary rider conclude*! the mau was lost. Mr. Clark, with
praiseworthy promptitude, immediately
started ont to search for the unfortunate.
Taking up tho tracks where the boundary
rider had left them, after a patient search
he found a saddle, bridle, and pack-saddle,
sll having the Government brand. Upon
this discovery he galloped into Arrilalah nnd
reported having found tho things, which
were at once recognised by Senior Couatable

alive. I_cd by Mr. Clark, the party soon
found the camp where Moran's saddles,
bridles, Ac, were, and, picking up the
tro;:kH, followed thom neraeveringly, determined, if it vrorei possible, to And him, alive
or dead. Presently, they fouud written in
large letters, on a bare patch' of claypan,
"A man lost in this paddock." The writing
was not m .re than a day or so old, and,
with strong hope of finding poor Moran still
alive, tho party eagerly continued their
search. Further on they found freshlv-
pulled grass and boughs. Finally, the object of their search was discovered sitting
tosigucdly on the ground —alive, it is true,
but emaciated and worn by his terrible
fast, having been 14 days without tasting
food—naked, bleeding, and swollen from
exposure and bites of mosquitoes and sandflies. He was taken into Arrilalah, ami,
considering the terrible nature of his experience, it is said he was progressing as well as

s+eam from the boiler mixes with a portion
ofthe exhaust steam. An experimental
engine of somo forty horse-power has been
at work for some time, with satisfactory results, and a marine engine ou this principle

A private letter from Naples contains tbe

which used to drag Ithe milk-cart np the

began to scratch awav the rubbish until Inlaid his master's bead bare, which was covered with wounds. Then tho dog began to
lick the wounds ; but finding that the bleed
ing continued, and comprehending that he
could uot dig further, he ran off and seized
by the coat the Hist individual he met, who,
thinking the dog was was mail, got loose
and ran away. But a second person, guessing what the animal wanted, followed him,

It hail been intended to have an exhibition
of the powers of the Nordenfelt gun at the
Rideau Rifle Range ou Saturday afteriinuii,
and invitations to be present hud liccti jmuk-.I
to Sir John Maedonsld, the Minister of
Militia and officials of the department, the
local militia officers and others. The weather,
however, was nnprnpitious for the assembling
of such a company, and the exhibition was
therefore postponed.
A few ilsyn ago it was announced that
Major Anderson of the -'inl Battalion had
expressed confidence iu his ability to construct out of ordinary sunw, in a short time,
a bank which would utter resistance sufficient
to stop any bullet, and it was stated that if
this was found tn be the ease the luunHwlg-
would prove valuable, as in the eveut of a
winter campaign the snow could lie ntili/eil
for the construction of shelter trenches. The
value of this theory was to have been put
to the test on Saturday afternoon also, and
thia part uf the programme was carried uut.
The officers who assisted iu making the ex
peri mint wero Major Todd and Lieut., tliey
Cote ami Winter, of the O.O.I'.d., nml
Capt. Kvans and J.ieut. Rogers, of the 4.1r<l.
A huge mound of snow, ten feet thick At the
base, had been constructed, and an ordinary
canvas target placed before it. The mound
was composed of snow closely packed iu
drifting, cut oat of the drifts in blocks, ami
further packed in the mound. The experiment was first tried from a range nf 200
yards, the firing being done by l.ieuts.
Grey and Winter, while Major Todd and
Capt. Kvans kept watch at the mound.
The weapons used were Martini and Snider
rifles. As each shot was tired a jet of
snow was seen to shoot from the rear of the
mound, and inspection showed a clean round
hole a couple of inches iu diameter where the
bullet had made its exit. Those fired at 200
yards were heard distinctly to striko the
fence some two hundred yards in rear of the
mound after passing through the latter, thus
demonstrating that their power for destruction had not been annihilated by the re-
sistenoe offered by the ten foot bank. The
bullets fired from a distance of five, hundred
yards likewise penetrated the mound at its
thickest part and were lost in the bank behind, the distance io the relative position nf
the firer aud the target preventing their
striking the fence in this oaae.
This experiment showed that dry snow at
any rate is of no material use for the construction of shelter from bullet.. It would
be interesting however, to try a further experiment witn snow saturated with water.
Of course to thns make an embankment
would lie a very tedious operation, while of
dry snow it is very simple.
As the afternoon was pretty cold and ..
very trying wind was blowing, the tisk of
the ollicers who made the experiment was
not the most pleasant desirable.
