into a rocky cave. Stones are being
rolled down the dirt's int i unappr ach

I waited for Button's riSe to speak,
but heard iioth ng There was almost
silence for* minute, when I heird two
shot, in rapid succession coming from
where I aupposi-d Mackinnon to be.
These were followed after a pause, liy
iwo more. Another pause, aod an
English "Who-whoop ! rang through
the jungle. The line of beater* came
up, and told ine that though one tiger
had been killed, the otlier had sneaked
olf to ine side and made his escape
towards the distant hills. There was
nothing more to wait for and I made
n y way iu tim direction th*t the sound
f shots came from. There lay the
tiger, terrible still in death llutton
had the complacent air of the man who
had tired the lucky shot, whd" Mac
kinnoii looked a little pale, and his
gun bearer was hold ng forth most
volubly to the beaters who had arrived
on the spot.     As 1    appeared,   Button
ivith equal   volubility  commenced to
give hia account of the death —
"Wha a sharp thing that was of
yours, old fellow, to send that "shik-trri"
to bring me to Mackinnon's past! I
was sitting waiting for the tiger to
show, when the nigger came anil
beckoned to me to follow him. I
thought he must know all about it. so
1 slipped down from my tree and
arrived just in time to see Mackinnon
standing on that rock, and firing at
the tiger within five and twenty yarrls.
He must have hit thu beggar, but not
bard enough, for the brute was just
going to spring, and I don't think Mac
would have gone Ij ,< k to can'oiiineiits
after it. I confess I felt a bit jumpy j
but 1 took as quiet a shot as 1 could
and put an ounce of lead iu the brute's
brain and another in his throat, and
turned him over. Mac hud a narrow
squeak No wonder he looks a bit
shaky.''
"Lucky indeed you were ther",
llutton, I said ; "though I never sent
to move you But how on earth were
you mad enough to le.ve your tree
Mackinnon 1 You must, have thought
yourself a better shot th-.ii most of us,
to elinose to meet o tig." on foot.''
"Well, yotl see, Melville, after 1 had
been sitting in the tree for some time
I found there were red ants in it, or
rather they found me out, and began
to bit" so viciously tbat 1 could stand
it no longer, so I thought I would
make a run for it, and try to Iind
anotlii r perch, .lust as I bad got on to
i bis rook, the tiger came charging down
and my only chance was to lire. I hit
once, I know, but only enough to make
him put uu his bristli's. My gun-
bearer had not followed me, and if
Button had not come up at that moment, I should have been finished oil'
long before now. 1 quite gave myself
up"
"Well, it wasa mrroiv shave. 'But
Button, show me the ''shikarri" who
moved you. He has deserved wall of
bis countiy, at any rat"."
"Oh, I conldn t mistake him— an old
fell w with a grey beard and a red
turban ; seemed awfully keen and ex
cited, but was sharp enough to make
no no se "
I had seen all our "shikarris" in the
mornniL', hut did not remember one;
answering to the description. We got
all our fnllowert together, and there
were certainly no absentees, as tim
danger was over, and they thought
that perhaps pay time had come. Even
the fut "patel ' urrived from the safe
position, which hehad occupied far in
the rear of the fray, and added hii
shabish to the shouts of delight of the
rest of the crowd.
Still, no one with a red turban. The
•'shikaris' swore that there was no Ial
tuggri wallah amongst them. Who
could it be, whose opportune interference had, in all probability, saved
Mackinnon from a ghastly death I All
declared that they had no hand in
moving the sahib from bis position.
But Button stuck to his story, and said
there could be no mistake
"Do you think   I would   have heen

frankly acknowledged that he had b»en
in too" great a funk to quit the tree,
when he thought a tiger was on foot.
Hehad seen his master suddenly jump
down, without apparent reason, and
was astonished when he went away.
All's well -ahat ends well, and Mackinnon's and B'ttn's gun bearers
escaied the licking which they no
doubt anticipated for not being bandy
at the critical moment. Indeed, one
could hardly blame the poor wretches
for not plunging into the jaws of
danger in the reckless and apparently
purposeless way that their masters had
done.
While our followers were eniploytd
in slinging the tiger on a stout bamboo
to carry him home in triumph, we en-
emconced oursel.eB in a cool adjacent
cave,     hailed    tbe    coolie   with   the
men, women, and children—all eager
to Bee the dreaded monster, winch had
onlv been known to them a* the
stealthy and ruthless taker of blackmail from their herds, and which
might at any time have made a "bonne
bouchi;" of papa or iniamma, or brother
or sister. We felt aery great and
beneficent beings indeed, and promised
ourselves many inure moments of equal
triumph before our leave was up.
Alas! our hopes were soon rudely
blighted. Behind the exulting and
shouting crowd appealed a runner, who
unrolled his Unban, and produced a
letter addressed to Captain Melville,
with the ominous initials, O.H.M.S.,
on the envelope. To my disgust it was
from the adjutant.
"My Liesb Mklvillk,—There has
been an outbreak among some fanatics
aliout 150 miles from here, and the
Resident has applied for a company to be ready to be sent down
to support the native police, who don't
seem to be worth much. We are
ordered to furnish the company, and
yours is the first for detachment. The
colonel, therefore, desires that you will
return to headquarters at once. A
"dawk'' of horses has been arranged
for you.    Sorry to spoil your sport."
This was disgusting; and there was
nothing for it but to obey, and bid
farewell to our tented freedom and
sport. Why could not these wretched
fanatics have controlled their spirits
till the drill eason, when a little mild
campaigning might have been a not
unwelcome interlude in our usual series
of battalion and brigade parades!
The journey out to our shooting ground
had been fatiguing, but at any rate we
had bi;en buoyed up against weariness,
and it had been made pleasunt for us
by the anticipation of the fun which
we hoped to have; but the journey
back, with the immediate prospect of
an inglorious and rather distasteful
duty, was very different. We got
through it however, and reported ourselves to the intense delight of some of
our friends, who had feared that the
letter of recall might not reach us, and
that they would have to go on coercion
duty instead of us. Though we were
held in readiness the actual orders for
nur movement did not arrive till th
second day after our return ; but Mackinnon and 1 had our time fully oc
cupicd on the intervening day by
parades aud preparations.
Fortunately for us, there was a railway which could bring us within a few
miles of the place where our services
were required ; and still more fortunately, we were only a small body of
troops to be moved, so we were not
crammed with regulation tightness into
the train, but both officers and men
had ample room, a matter of no small
consideration towards the end of the
hot weather. My company was formed
up at the •■ nation about six o'clock in
the evening, so that we might run the
troop train through and get into camp
before morning. There they stood, in
cool and easy "khaki" clothes, with
greatcoats rolled, haversacks over Iheir
shoulders, and their pouches bulging
with ball ammunition, while the active
sergeants were telling off the parties to
load the baggage in the vans, and ul
loting its proper complement of men to
each coiipartment of the carriages
All looked serviceable and workmanlike; and though the men seemed at first
•right u little drawn and black under
thee yes from the effects of the long
hotnioiit lis, they were stalwart seasoned
wildiers, whose stamina was at its
best.
In these days there is one great satisfaction to a soldier, and especially a
regimental officer, in serving in India,
that when any troops are required for
service, everybody is trained, fit and
ready to go. There the army is on a
war footing always, and it is not necessary to break up a brigade to furnish a
battaliin, nor a battalion to furnish a
company. Here are no batches of
reserve men or detachments of volunteers from distant garrisons turning up
at the last minute, and breaking the
hearts of officers and non-commissioned
officers alike. Here is no confusion or
uncertainty about the necessaries for a
campaign, and the transport which is
o convey tlmni. Everything is clearly
by regulation laid down «nd known,
and ihiiigh it rosy md some
times does happen that there isa local
difficulty in providing what is required,
I the Indian departments so well lino .
their work that that difficulty is always
quickly overcome. Aid to this thai

We sped along thiougn the night
without "conireierups," tnd arrived ai
our destination m th* grey of the
mornimi. Ea ly as it was, we found
the Collector of the district awairin.

his ha ids h.d b-en strengthened, »od
that he might hope now to be able to
restore order. The origin uf the disturbance, appeared to be that h fanatic
Moslem,in x moment of religious frenzv,
had killed a Hindoo. lhe murderer
had been concealed by the people nf I.is
village, who, when a force of police
were sent down to search anl lo enforce the law, had taken up araii,
broken into open rebellion, and committed aeveral deeds of violence. The
native police had been defied and driven
back, und the Collector and other niagis
tiatcs stoned and threatened. It was
now hoped that, if the police had the
support of a few soldiers, it would be
seen that resistance was bopeleis, and
that things would settle down into
their usual course.
The healqusrtern ofthe riotern were
rather more than twelve miles distant,
and it was arranged that we s ould
encamp fnr the day, an I match in the
evening to a village w.thin two miles
of their position, anl attack them on
the following morning, unless in the
meantime limy hail seen the (oily nf
their ways, cea*ed resistance, an I given
up their ringleniiers and the original
murderer. The Collector was very
loath io proer-ei to extremities with
them, and siid that he would give them
ev ry chance of timely submission, by
"ending a message to tell them of the
force which was now coining agiinsi
I cm and the serious consequences of
continued icni>.tuii.e I never expected
that onr services would be really re-
quiren. Very few comparitiveiy of
the fanatics appealed to have tiieamis,
and th" arriva' ofa tr-un full cf white
soldiers, whose number rumor woold
no doubt multiply infinitely, seemed
likely to make the desired impirs.ion
on the country-side.
We set to work to pitch our camp,
ami make our detachment comfortable
for the day while t,h» Collector sent off
his ultimatum.
In ihe course of the forenoon we
were joined by a large body of native
police, and between four and five our
small column moved off. It wasa very
trying inarch. The men we.e laearU
ankle-deep in dust, and dusty clouds,
kicked up bv every footstep, fi led our
eyes, ears, and mouths, and made the
heat of the atmosphere even more in-
tolerjble. We made sieady progress,
however. The police were some hundred yards in front of uiv company, ss
the Collector, who rode .vith then:
wished the surrender to be maJe, if it
was to be inaale lo the civil power, nnd
to keep the soldiers as much as possible in the background.
"Oh, Bill! what would you give
a pot of canteen porierl" said   one
my men huskily   to   his next   file,
they   made   fie r    way   through
gritty atmosphere.
"Le. beaux esprits se lencomreni,"
said Mackinnon, equally huskily; to
me; "1 was just going to sav that an
iced whiskv-an l-siida avould be heavenly."
We reached the edge of snine cultivated ground atfer a time, hnwever.and
halted for a few minutes to let tne men
quench their thirst, and refill theii
wateibotlles at a neighbouring well.
While we were thus employed, two or
three faint reports of musket-shots were
heard in the distance, snd lhe police
came tumliling back from the from In
conaiJorable con fusion, the Collector
bringing up their ani, brandishing a
white umbrella, abusing them for
their conduct, and adjuring them to
come back tnd secure their opponents.

an unfortunate lunatic named Sam

Of Sproule's hanging the Chicago
Herald says:—"It was a judicial
butchery, and au act of unmistakable
hostility to the American people."
Thr whole article is a rare sample of
the high falutin spread eagle scream.
In truth there was no circumstantial
evidence worth notice in support of
not guilty ; but the few words spoken
on the trap by the unfortunate man
just before he was turned off may be
accepted as evidence that he believed
he deserved death and did not like to
say so. Indeed the article in the
Herald merely proves that tbe writer
is an ignorant scribbler or au unfortunate young man who lately escaped
from a lunatic asylum.
FOREIGN AFFAIRS.
As we stated some  time ago, Russia
will prepare the  way for her armies in
Bulgaria not "ith bullets and bayonets,
but with gold.    She will buy statesman
after statesman.    She  purchased Zankoff,   she   purchased   Karraveloff and
now, we suspect, she   has   purchased
Stambuloff, who, it is said,  is prepared
to resign to make way for Zankoff, who
ought  to have  been   hanged  for   his
treachery in kidnapping Prince Alexander.    The Bulgarian   |ieoplc hate  the
Russians  as  much   as   they   formerly
hated the Turks, but they have no leaders who can resist bribes.      By degrees
Russian officials  and   Russian officers
will be forced upon the people with the
connivance  of the   ministers  and lhe
country will   Ik* so thoroughly Russianized  that  the   |*eople   themselves  will
assist at their own enslavement.   Meantime De (liers   will assure the Austrian
and German Governments thai Russia
has   no   desire   to   occupy   Bulgaria.
How long the French can be prevented
from moving in some  direction to find
a vent for their military ardor, is hard to
say.    It* is clear that with the exception
of  Russia, they have no one who will
sympathise with  them in their attempt
to force  England  to evacuate Egypt;
for although  Turkey may talk  a great
deal about it in order to please France
and  Russia,  she  means nothing, and
will certainly not move in the  matter.
Failing any effect on   England respecting  Egypt, Russia is  doing a little on
the Affghan frontiers, and she keeps the
little dispute about the boundary line on
the Oxus  in pickle, for a future emergency.    Meantime England  is quietly
watching her movements and preparing
for a grand coup when necessity requires
it.    If the gods have decided to destroy
the Muscovite empire they have taken
the usual  course  in  making the Czar
mad.    He seems to have lost all sense
of prudence and will plunge into a great
war without any consideration of how
he will come out of il. Political reasons
have always hitherto, saved the Russian
empire from destruction.    She has been
permitted to escape as being a counterpoise to German extension, and calculating on this she has taken liberties with
England that no other power would be
permitted to do.    But she is very apt
to   overstrain   British forbearance   by
treading upon  British  corns.     If she
goes   too   far   she must  be crippled.
France should  be  the natural ally of
England in the cause of freedom, but
she is intoxicated  with her love of revenge and she  may waste her splendid
resources only to bring  upon  herself
great misfortunes.     There seems to be
a general impression that any great warlike  movement in Europe, will be deferred till the spring,  so that preparations of all kinds will be going forward
till that time.     Meantime England is
prosecuting her little  war in Burmah
with vigor;  General   Roberts has received  carle blanche in order to finish
the work at the earliest possible  moment.    We may be quite sure that he
will  not perform  his work with gloved
hands.    A lasting  impression must be
made upon the Burmese, because there
is a great prize in store for British traders.    It is now well known that as soon
as the country is thoroughly pacified an
illimitable field for trade will be opened,
so that the game is well worth the candle.    In South Africa—the great gold
fields of two thousand years ago, the
greatest modern    "El   Dorado"     is
about to be  opened.    If any fear was
entertained that the world's supply of
gold was likely to be limited, all anxiety
in thai rcjpect may be set aside.    The
rej-orts from  the  Cape have the very
best   confirmation   in   the very  large
amounts of gold sent to England. From
accounts received  up to the middle of
last month, the extent of rich mines discovered is something extraordinary and
the auriferous area appears to be without limit.    The mines,  however,  are,
for the most part, in reefs, involving a
large   outlay   in   crushing   mackinery
which will of course,  confine the working to wealthy companies.   The alluvial  diggings  although  they  pay pretty
well, are not of any great extent.    The
gold fever will be of great advantage to
the Cape colony and will  give exactly
what has  been  sorely needed   in the
country—a   large   British   population.
Politics in England are taking a much
needed rest and will afford the Government time to look after the poor people
who are out of employment.    We don't
know what has been done in the way of
" fair trade "   recently,  because   Irish
affairs monopolized the political stage,
but we don't see how some modification in that direction, can be longer delayed.    Manufactured goods, the product of foreign  cheap labor are being
imported into England by the shipload
and British money to pay for them is
being   sent   abroad.      Meantime   the
British artizan and his family are starv-
moderate extent   at   first, we have no ' futility is revealed.    But the ebullitions
doubt, and we think that such commencement will be the entering wedge
for the destruction of that great mistake
—free trade. What is required and
what would be obtained, were it not
for the free trade fanatics, is Imjierial
federation. If England could offer a
discriminating duty to our colonies, as
against all countries with heavy tariffs,
federation would be accomplished at
once
THE    GOVERNMENT    OF    SIR
JOHN A. MACDONALD.
Readers of the newspapers fron the
eastern provinces will Iind it difficult to
form   an  opinion  as  to  the   probable
strength ofthe Macdonald Government
.".Iter the approaching general elections,
because the respective sections of Grits
and lories support their views by statements so diametrically opposed, that a
|ierson must   be  absolutely on the spot
to judge of the political  Iceling in any
particular   locality.    It   may, however,
be possible to draw an   inference from
existing facts,   sufficient   to  satisfy the
mind as to the tendency of events,    We
have already pointed out that while the
Quebec elections avere very disappointing to the Ross  Government tliey were
very far  from producing the result exacted  by the Grits and Rouges ; that
on the  whole, the Ross administration
might very well hold   its own until the
artificial excitement created by the elections, had subsided and people begin to
look  soberly at  the facts as they really
are.    We  need  hardly repeat that the
recent  local  elections   in   Quebec are
very far from indicating the actual feeling of the majority In that province in
respect  to the Conservatives, and this
may be  very easily explained.     The
educated and  sensible portion  of the
French Canadians are purely Conservative and this,   because  the exceptional
privileges granted by the   Federal Government to Quebec have been a source
of continual  complaint by Grit orators,
against  lhe  Conservatives, both on religious and economic grounds.    It has
been strongly represented by these great
exponents of Gritism, that the very advantageous position held by the Church
of Rome in Quebec, is an anomaly and
a disgrace  to a Protestant people—the
great   majority of the Canadians ; and
that,  on  every principle  ot  right and
justice it should be abolished.    On economical grounds also, they urge, the exceptional   privileges   accorded  to   the
French Canadians in the administration
of  the  law  and  the  retention   of the
French language in the proceedings and
in the debctes  in Parliament, inflicts a
heavy expenditure on the country which
can not  be  defended by any  tenable
argument   and   must   be   got   rid  of
at the earliest  possible   moment.      It
is clear that the French Canadians can
only hope for the conservation of these
religious,  social and judicial privileges
from the Conservatives ; that any sympathy expressed  by the   Grits   for the
death of Riel was only the disguise assumed with the object ol diverting votes
at the election ; they were the crocodile
tears shed  by Grits before they utterly
Swept away the privileges of  the habitants.    All this is known to the intelligent Quebeccrs who will completely reverse the  issue of the  late   elections
when it comes to a vole for representatives  to the  House of Commons.    In
the same way the   Nova  Seotians have
pretty well exhausted  their enthusiasm
for  secession and will  return to their
Federal cake and milk  in a common
sense way.     There are in Nova Scotia
a  great  number of men whose entire
capital consists   (like our  own   honest
John) in a little bit of superficial cunning and  great  facility  for   stringing
words together in speeches or on paper.
Although these  newspaper articles and
speeches  are mere froth, they do not
appear so to the  masses who are imposed  upon by the large amount   of
newspaper surface covered by secession
leaders, and the loud talk and baseless
assertions  of the Nova Scotian honest
Johns.     The really respectable portion
of the inhabitants, although offering little
or  no opposition to the secession cry,
for obvious reasons, think  differently,
and  will vote for Conservatives at the
coming election     Everyone knows how
wonderfully Nova Scotia has improved
since Confederation, and how many interests are interwoven  with the rest of
the Dominion, requiring its continuance.
Recent events in Newfoundland clearly
demonstrate that  it  is not good for a
man or a province to live alone. Union
means strength  and solidity.    Separation means weakness and privation.   So
far as Nova Scotia  is concerned secession  is  impossible,  and this must be
quite evident to the very men who advocate  it.     If for  instance the much
talked of maritime federation could be
in Quebec and Nova Scotia are only
the natural results ofa little local inflammation to which the body politic is exposed from time to time, and will disappear with the soothing applications so
well known to the Maconald Government. The Gritthave not shown them-
sL'hcs capable of administering a popular government, and they can only be
useful in exjxising the errors and evil
tendencies of the Conservatives. In
the role of censors, they may do pretty
well, and it is highly probable they will
ontinue to |-erform that duty.

ENGLAND CONFRONTS THE CZAR.
Tho fate of I'ulgaria ia about to be decided. Instead of rumor* and prediction*
we have ut lust some weighty fact*. Th*
British Cabinet ha* ordered its smbassador
at Constantinople to demand the immediate
convocation of a conference for the regula
tion of thu Bulgaria intuition, and to insi.at
that, meanwhile, Russian intervention
whether diplomatic or active, shall he suspended. By this held utterance Lord Sail*
bury bus thrown down tbe gauntlet to the
Czar. The Ruaaian autocrat ia warned that
bin browbeating of an independent State
must cease, that he shall not exercise a jot
mora control over Bulgaria than belongs to
any other power repreaented in the Berlin
Congress, that his agent, Kaulbars, must
withdraw, and that bis warships will debark troopa at Varnu or bombard that city
at tbeir peril.
England tukea nt least one step toward regaining hor former dignity and lnfluenco by
rotating to tolerate the Czar's arrogant de-
finiic'. ni treaty obligations. Although the
poaition ultich she assumes is unassailable
from tbe puint of view of international law,
the fact that she is first of the great powers
to usriiinie it, assures to Iter the moral leadership of the combination to defend the faith
of treaties and the independence of the
South Slavic States. It makes her tho chief
executor of the will of Kurope announced at
tire I 'ongrenH of Berlin. The peremptory
numinous to thu (.'/.ar to take his hand* off
Bulgaria, and lay his alleged grievance before an international tribunal, will act like
mi electric .bock on the fluttering or torpid
Itovei'iiiiients of Rome, Vionna, Constantinople, Buchtarcit, and Belgrade.
Already we are informed that Italy concurs in the declarations made by Kngland to
the Osar, It bus, indeed, been certain that
King Humbert** t'overnment would in international disputes support the British
Ministry from the mnment that the hatter's
interests became divorced from those of
France in Kgypt and the eastern Mediterranean. At Constantinople tbe arrival of
Sir William Wbitu aud the news of the firm
lictfitninatiun reached by the English
Cabinet council will have precisely the result foreseen by everyone familiar with the
history of Muscovite intrigues among tbe
Turkish piishas. Sn long as war seems
avertible, or so long as Kngland ueems in
rimed tn leave the Sultan in the lurch, leading men.ber. of the Porte will freely pocket
the Czar's roubles and promise coalition in return. But they novcr mean to keep the
promise, and the instant England, which
possesses incomparably greater financial resources than any other Kuropeau power,
ihowa herself willing to spend blond and
money in the Sultan's cause, the influence of
Muscovite diplomatists at Stamboul is reduced of zero. At the present, as at every
previous conjuncture in this century, Kngland has had hut to declare herself in unflinching accents the Sultan's friend, and sll
hope of vying w ith her for ascendancy on
the Bosporus baa vanished.
Of course the decision reached by the
British Cabinet council and communicated to the Czar is virtually an ultimatum,
llie implied alternative is war. That England will not in this instance evade the implication, but will hold herself bound to
make good her words by deeds, will be believed owing to the f*ct that the Tories are
ni oliice ami apparently assured of a long
tenure of power. Just noav public opinion
in i iieat Britain iB almost uii*nimuusly
aroused against Russia. All Continental
stutesmen understand that a demonstration
by Lord Saliabury under such political eon
litinim means something much more serious
thau land i IranviUe's warning to Russia
aprupns of the Afghsn boundary di.pu.e.
Accordingly, at Buda-Pesth and Vienna the
tidings that England haa summoned the
C/ar to halt will give an immense Impetus

A scheme is being pro noted by some
French capitalists for the construction of *
railway through a tunnel to be earned under
the Sound from Denmark to Sweden. It is
to start from the Ameger suburb of Copenhagen tn the Island of Snlthorm, a distance
of about five miles, where air shaft* will be
established, and thence to Limhamn in
Swtden, ia distance of about three mile*.
The depth of water in these passages doe*
not exceed fifty feet, so that the tunnel
would not be at .any great depth. It ia expected that the works will be completed in
less than three years. A Government guarantee of 5 per cent, is sought on a capital to
be raised, the amount of which is not yet
fixed, and it ia possible that the whole sum
may be provided by some large houses without coming to the market. The Swedish
ports on the Sound are shallow, and difficulties occur in the shipment of goods, but
as railway communication now exist, between Copenhagen and the Continent of
Europe, thia submarine railway would bring
Sweden into direct communication with the
Continent, and a large goods traffic, a. well
us conveyance of passengers, ia expected.—

LORD DUDLEY'S   HABIT OF THINK
ING ALOUD.
Some yesrs before bis last illness Lord
Dudley was the guest of the late Mrs.
Cunliffe Ofliey. Mrs. Cunliffe was anut hy
marriage to the beautiful daughters of Sir
Richard Brooke. On coming iuto the room
Lord Dudley asked at once alter the lovely-
Miss Brooke, the present Lady Meath, who
during the previous season had tsken sll
hearts by storm. Mrs. Cunliffe answered:
"I suppose you mean Harriett. She is now
at home, hut Mary, her sister, la with me
this year in her place, aud among ourselves
we think Mary, though her beauty is of a
different kind, quite as handsome aa Harriett." '-I dare aay," retorted Lord Dud
ley, in a regular fume, "that is always the
way with you women ; if there is one pretty
girl among a lot of sisters you will try to
poke the rest of them down our throat*
over her back.''
Mrs. Cunliffe, being an old friend and
well aware of the Dudley eccentricities, was
not much moved bv this somewhat rough
contradiction, observing only, "Well, it is
nothing to me, Lord Dudley, but that is our
opinion; agree with it or not, as you please,
and now we had better go to dinner."
To dinner they weut, and Lord Dudley,
sitting opposite the new beauty, very soon
began to talk to himself. "Confouud theold
jade, I almost think that she is right after
all ; datnu tbe old hag, she is, indeed."
"What are you talking about, Lord Dudley?" was the not unnatural inquiry. "Well,
Mrs. Cunliffe, you see it had just passed
through my miud that your opinion as to
Miss Brooke's beauty is quite justified, and
I suppose I have been saying to myself how
thoroughly I agree with you." After that,
of course there avas uothing to be done
except to stop that sort of conversation as
soon a* possible. —Court Journal.

Tbe despatch oi Busman warship* to Bulgaria's chief seaport, Varna, is hailed by o
Russian newspaper as the beginning of the
end. This, indeed, it woold be if the threat
of bombarding the town or of landing sailors
should be executed. Such a violation of
Bulgaria's right of telf govern ment and of
the treaty righto of her Turkish suzerain
would convince Austria that the time for remonstrance had gone by, aod tbat armed in*
tei position had become indispensible. If
Austria mores, moat of the other great
powers will bave to take sides in the contest, and therefore, it is nrobablc that the
lirst shot tired at Varna will wt not only tbe
Balkan region, but all Kurope in a Maze.
The appearance of Russian cruisers at
V a roa was simultaneous with the convocation of the .Sobranje or National Assembly
at Tirnova. Tho evident purpose of the naval demonstration was to favor an uprising
which ahould give Ruaaia s partisans possession ofthe town. A similar movement seems
ts have been intended at Sofia, fur a state of
seige has been proclaimed in that city on the
ground that tho Ruaaian Knroy, Gen. K..nl*
bars, hu arranged to take advantage of the
sbsence of the leaders of th* patriotic party
to overthrow the provisional itoverament.
Tho firmness displayed by tho Regents in
the faoe of such proofs of the Czar's purpose
is amazing, when we call to mind how recently Bulgaria was iuuk to abject servitude. Te American? this apeutaclo is pocu
Marly welcome, for It is well known that
many of the most influential men in the
patriotic party are gradustes of Roberts
College ou the Bosporus, an institution
founded by an American citizen aud presided
over by an American scholar, the Rev. Dr.
Washburn. It is tho teachings of American
history that are now Imaring fruit in the unflinching spirit of the assembly at Tirnova.
According to a telegram from Constantinople, tho Porte, which had already disavowed the imputed cooperation of its envoy
with Kaulbars, has requested Russia to explain the presence of her war vessels nt Var
na. If Sir William White can give tbe
voice of England tho weight it had ten years
ago, the remonstrance will bo cintihRaized by
the despatch of Turkish ironclads to the
Bulgarian seaport. That the present British
Government will he disposed to offer a vigorous resistance to the Gzar'e coercive programme mav be inferred from the resolution passed by the recent Conservative Conference at Bradford to adhsro unswervingly
to tho Kastern policy of BeaoonsBcld. It is
hard to see how even Mr. Gladstone, though
ke has sometimes seoaed to regard Mus*
eovite aggression with sympathy, could
fail to sanction a defence of Bulgarian
independence, which he was the first to advocate. In fact, the Czar has put himself
so flagrantly in the wroug by all nf his pro*
ceedinga in the Bulgarian business since the
abduction of Prince Alexander, that British
public ssutimeut is, for the first time since
the Crimean war, universally and strongly
aroused against bim.
Th* bombardment or ooctpatiuu of Varna
by a Russian naval force would etcito such a
storm of wrath and indignation at Buda
Pesth and at Vienna that Count Kalnoky
woald bave either to obey the people's fiat
or give place to a more faithful representative of Hapaburg interest*. Had he
cordially approved of th* pledge given by
Hen Tisza to the Hungarian Diet thst the
Czar should not be suffered to coerce Bulgaria, he wunld already have protested
against th* Varna demonstration. But any
further shuffling upon his part at this
juncture will be followed by a vehement
demand for his removal, which is the more
certain to be beaded becaus* Bismarck ban-
no reason to befriend him. His supersession
by a statesman of the Andrassy type would
involve measures so distinctly committing
Austria to an inflexible support of the Bulgarians, that Kngland wouhl hesitate no
longer to place herself on the same side.
Then they who imagine that Turkish
Pashas, however corrupt they may 1><\
would venture to betray the outwork of
Constantinople, would be quickly undeceived, and the whole web of intrigae which
Russia hss beeu spinning for the last twelvemonth in southeastern Kurope would be
rent asunder.—N, Y. Hvn.

A Chinaman, on bis way from Lewiston
tu China, carrying the bones of his brother
carefully pinked in a valise, stopped at
Portland, Ore., for a day or two to visit
friends. On his way to the steamer the
valise was stolen, and the grief and indignation of the pious Chinaman were intense,.
Ho was aliout to offer a reward of #100 for
tho recovery of the bones, but bis wiser
friend said that it waa not worth whilo, for
the thief would certainly drop the valise as
soou as ite contents were known. This was
good advice, for tho valise was found,
greatly to its owner's delight. The thief
had evidently brokon it open, pulled out the
skull of the ib ad Celestial, And then
dropped it and departed.

Tho Cologne Genetic says : It is now whis-

Reutcru had earned the reputation of

An interesting papor on tho "Flax Grow-
inaand Linen Manufacturing Capabilitiea of
Canada," was road in the Conference Hall,
on Friday last, by Mr. B, B Biggar, the
chair being occupied by General Lowry. In
sneaking of the adaptability of the climate
and soil of Canada, Mr. Biggar pointod out I
that flax of oxcellcntqualityTiad been grown
evory Province of the Dominion, and had
been utilisod to a considerable extent in
domestic manufacture ever stneo the first
settlements. In 1881 there avere reported
" 0ri6 35S lbs. of dressed flax, and 1,293,892
v'ardB of home-made linen produced in
Canada, of whioh over 1.000,000 yards were
made in Quebec, 38,038 yards in Nova
Scotia. 51,458 yards in Now Brunswick, and
30 088 in Prince Kdwards Island, this,
however, showed a decline of half a million
yards since 1871, even though   at that time
the Dominion only ■'•'n9"Vd._)-,1!0U.r.rr0'
vlnces. In tho Canadian North-West three
species of the indigenous flax grew luxuriantly over a vast area of country, and might,
no doubt, be utilised one day to good advantage in the manufacture of twine, Ac,
when machinery was introduced to work up
the fibre. Mr. Biggar went nn to express
the opinion that flax could bo grown not
•nly in very laaxge quantities in Canada, but
also at a good profit, finding a great market
in Great Britain and in the United Status as
well as at home. Eight acres of land would
he said, produce a ton of dressed fibre, of
which tho average value would be £41. This
would give he estimatod, a total result much
better than wheat at it present price in
Manitoba and the North-West. The cultivation of flax, moreover, if carried out
oronerlv, would not deteriorate the quality
