Mr. Z. replied, "You are a sensible
woman, and I am veiy much obliged to

bundled himself towards the end of the
deck whereon 1 was standing, looking,
I have no doubt, ruefully upon this acquisition, should exclaim ashe atw me—
"Vou have got a revolver theie, ttranger
and you are In a jolly fix, ain't yim

That was just my difficulty, so I replied meekly, "Can you tell mc if it is
"Why, don't you know?'' replied the
youth, with great contempt.
"Mr. Ti. has just given it to me, and
I forgot to ask him if it was loaded or
not. Do you know anything about revolvers'"
"Should rather think I did," was the
response. "Let us have a try." As he
spoke he took the weapon out of my
hand, and soon solved the doubt, a. be
discharged a ringing shot over the ship's
The report brought two or three of
the stewards to where we stood, wanting
to know what the noiae was about.
"Did ye think I had killed yer graiid-
motherl" answered the youth very
rudely. Then as he saw the purser
coining along, he changed his tone, and
commenced to i-xplsin tba situation,
asservating very strongly lhat the revolver would be in far better hands if
the lady would give it to him.
As no one made any reply to this,
Master C. addressed himself directly to
me. "It is a jolly good revolve,," he
said, "and no use to a woman. Come
now, I'll give you five dollars for it,
lhat s a fair deal!"
"I have told you thnt Mr. /. has

Mm aBiile, snd held the revolver in his
own lirunl-., within a minute uf time;
and them a calm, deliberate manner he
showed me bow to manage tills niui-
lerous liltln instrument.
"You had better let your mozo carry
this for you," said this good-natured
gentleman. "I think I have a little
case somewhere which Ihis will fit into.
I will look at once, as earlv -o-inorrow
we reich La Liheiiad, and I shall be
busy,"    So ««ring, he withdrew.
'l'i,., day and the night passed, and
th.* early morning found tne fast asleep
when the poit of La Libertad was
reached and left. As soon as 1 made
my appearance on deck, one of the
stewards accosted me as he pointed to
the canvas bag which had come on board
with Mr. Z.
"The gentleman left hto ecmpHments
for you, madam," he said; "and 1 was
to give you these cocoa-nuts, Mr. Z.
thought you might like them. Mr. Z.
would like to have shaken hands with
you, but lie would not have voir called.
He toll me to say that he hoped you
would have a good journey, and to be
sure and get provisions wheiever you
can."  ,
This was the first and last I have seen
of Mr. Z., but I shall always have a
kindly temembrance of this sympathising eccentric fellow-tiavellsr.
La Union was to be our next port,
and in consequence the whole of the C.
family were in a state of high excitement, as this was their point ol d»bark-
ation. Great wat the sciubbing and
dressing; and as some ot theii old clotheH
were cast into the sea, I rescinded the
wish of my heart,'—viz., that the accordion would be assigned to the deep in
their company. Much as we all had
suffered from that instrument, and often
as we bail vowed vengeance againtt it,
I don't think any one even shivered as
the eldest C. girl performed "Home
sweet home" for the last time. It was
an "adieu" to us in a manner, and they
were going home to "father." The
children looked softened, too, as they
were put into fresh raiment; and
Master C. was so civil to me that I
made over the bag of cocoa nuts lo him
and his on the spot.
Amapala was the next port, so 1
made my arrangements, and we were
all in marching order when, some hours
later, we stood opposite La Union.
Like most places on this coast. La
Union appeared to be an assemblage
of red-tiled roofs, bnilt in groups, the
gaps being filled up by dwarf, green
sbruba, and.here and there by a tall
palm-tree; tbe shore low and sandy
snd looking as if quite ready to slip into
the sea on the smallest provocation.
This is a place of some magnitude,
however, and is more regularly bnilt
farther in the interior. A good deal
of ttadu is dons here, and La Union
holds the repntation of being an improv-
ling snd progressive lown.
more than ordinary curiosity, as the
anxiety displayed by the <'. family to
greet tha husband snd father h.d quite
enlisted my sympathies. Several boats
bad come to tbe ship's tide, conveying
merchandise and visitor"), but no Mr. C.
pot in an appearance.
The patience of the younger gitl wa*
becoming exhsusted, and the had just
fetched her breath for a scream, when a
sailor came on tbe poop, and presented
a letter to Mrs. C, the mother. This
wat to tell har that Mr. C. waa far away
up lb* country, but tbst he had deputed
line vTctrcfmsni ■ w meet her aucMier
children, and that apartments would be
ready for hei in La Union.
Tbe poor woman waa at once disappointed and relieved. Very soon a
large host was waiting at the ship's side.
A nice pleasant-looking man stepped on
board, and it wag announced that he
had come, ss requested, to fetch away
Mrs. 0.
Whilst the luggage was being put in
the boat, tbe consul -held a iittle chat
with me, and offered to take me over
with them to see La Union, and partake of the hospitality of hi. house.
There i-ould be a difficulty about my
return, and the time was very short, so
I was obliged to decline the favour. All
over the world the American men are
paiticuiarly kind to lone females, and I
scored this gentleman as orfe example
more on my list
After a short coufeience with the
captiin, the consul and his chaigestnok
their departure. Mrs. C 's blue feather
and the redoubtable accordion perched
on a mountain of baggage wus the last
we saw of this family. Now for Ami-
"I shall order a particularly good
dinner on your account, as you will

C, laughing. "What do you like bescf
You know it will be long before you get
a decent meal again."
This hard fact had by this time been
pretty well impressed upon me; but \

Apparently the consul did take his
time, for we watted long befoie the
custom-house boat put off from the
slime. As it came nearer, we hav that
two persons occupied it—a little while
man, anil a very Uige black man.
"The consul is n it c ining thi- rime,"
said an officer; "heie's bin clerk „nd the
"Captain whol" I could not help repeating.
"Oh," laughed the purser, "thst black
fellow is called 'captain' on account of
his warlike performances. He has
fought, he says, in three of the revolutions in which this country delighted to
revel some yea's ago; and, according to
his own accounl, he was the means of
routing the enemy on more than one
"Do you believe this?"
"Not a   word.    The   captain   in an
awfui fellow to brag, but hn   can work
and ilni'.H work; 1 will sny that for him."
"What brings lum herei" 1 ask.

something   for   the   custom-house.    I

Bab',?    As he is Bot here, you had better
send it to the clerk.    That genileman in
transactiitg some business with Captain
C. just now, but 1 will see about it."
Presently up cam* the cleik. He wns
a dapper littlo man ttith a large white
faca, which did cot impress me very
favourably as to the salubrity of Ams-
pala. 1 found, however, on conveisu.g
further, that he was ready to vouch
that Amapala was a perfect sanifarium.
"Fever I yah—no I" exclaimed he irvdrawl-

lie did so mm ri tall pleasant looking
woman returned with him. She said
she could supply me with what. 1 required, nnd then the question of charges
came ui>doi discussion.
The "captain" here, intervened     and

I really dm not kucw, out I felt
grateful to the youth for endeavouring
to queneh this nuisance, and so answered that the consul knew that 1
would pay what was just. Then 1
gave this very disagreeable porter a
peseta (English, tenpence) for carrying
the. portmanteau, and very heartily
gave him goodnight.
Two men came in as the "captain'
welit out, and we were much amused
to hear him informing tliem of the
charge he was taking of the English
lidy—"Urand thing to speak English,"
I heard him sny in that language, as
ho finally took himself off.
The men naturally scanned me after
this remark, but respectfully and without showing any cariosity. Tin*)' ordered "vino blnnio'/' and salt themselves
down to smoke.
"Pray excuse our taking) you through
th" wineshop," said the landlady, "but
we have mislaid the key of the other
door. It will be found to-morrow.
See, Eduardo, take that box into the
room for the  lady."
A lantern was brought, and we
passed through the back of the bar,
and came out upon a wide verandah,
which was bordered by a rmn-row strip
of garden bounded by a high wall.
We entered the guest-chamber. Had
1 been qualifying for prison life, here
was an  opportunity   tor   commencing j

"Keep the shutter close then," I replied with energy, "I did not think
snakes came so mar the houses. How
The boy explained that about, a fortnight before a small serfienle had crawled one hot night through the lattice-
bars, and descended into 'his chamber.
"There was a large growth of thick
damp herbage under the wall on that
side, be said, "and it might tje that a
sliilki'S hole was then'.
"But why OU earth is it not cleared
or burnt out.' said I ; "it is very dan-
genius for every one to let the herbage
remain there.''
"Quien Babe?" he replied ; and then
the opposite door was pointed out to
me as being the one through which 1
could enter from the street. This was
a very strong door, but it was unlocked,
the key being missing, as I was told on
my arrival. There was a latch, by
which the occupant could open it when
the impediment enforced by the lock
should lie removed.
The   landlady   proposed   to fetch a
sheet   and   a pillow-slip, and then she I
added with an air of triumph,   "I shall

joke, ami never seemed tn .perceive the
sarcasm which -night be veiled in the
guise of this speech and present : I was
very glad to represent the "poordeTil."
She went out laughing heartily, and
the boy ami I uml the lantern were
left alone.

asked bim, and a—here I could not

recourse to signs.
"Oh yes, , know—wash face : leave

I waited on ui American lad] once  in
travelling, and she liked much waU r,
und as he spoke he darted oft'with thc
lantern. I mt down on the bed, h ip-
ing that the tea would be brought
ijuieklv. and wondering what the bev
enure would lie like.
The landlady returned with a candle
stick in one band in whieh was set up
a large wax candle ; under her arm wns
bundled the promised 1,,,1-lineii,   which
rather to my surprise, wus   clean   and
Hue, the upper hem nf the sheet   being
bordered with wide luce. The pillow
slip was trimmed in like manner ; and
when the bed was made up und n scar
let coverlet thrown over all, the bed-
place really looked like a liright spot in
this desert, and I began to expect Other
1'inie Krouglit the tea, and very good
it proved. The English gentleman had
evidently taught the hostess how to
make use of his gift. The boy, too,
brought toilet-ware piece by piece m
spasins. and lastly a large earthen jar
full of water. He had fetched it from
a well close at hand, and it was delightfully pure and fresh.
The lad withdrew, and then returning to the door summoned the landlady.
A great whispering went on for some
iriiiutes : at length my hostess returned,
aiid said in rather ill a mysterious manner, "You ore going to Comayagua,
are you not?"
"I shall pass through that town," 1
answered ; but why do you ask?"
"Oh, the boy comes from that part,
and he does not want to remain in Amapala. Why not take him as your
wetol He is a good lad, and I would
like to get him a place."
"He is in your employ, is he not?" 1
"What you may call employ, yes ;
but there is nothing to do for a lad like
him. He sells wine for me, true ; but
I cannot pay him—trade very dull,
and verv few come to stay at thisposada.
The lad only lives by doing a little tailoring here and there.''

"The Lords accused of murder have a

If I were to tell you how many of them

believe that the majority of the City
Councillors accepted the By-law as perfect, being the production of professional men who are paid handsomely by
the Council for the small amount of
work they do. Councillors are not
supposed to be lawyers, and they are
necessarily compelled to be guided by
their paid legal advisers. But it is
strange that the omission in the Bylaw was only detected by outsiders who
could not be so well-instructed as themselves in relation to the object of the
By-law. 'Let us look at this object as
it is publicly understood ; it is the construction of a branch railway from the
Canadian Pacific at the Coquitlam, to
this city. This is a most commendable
object, and one that the citizens generally must regard with favor, although
we have always insisted that a tramway with the requisite cars would answer all the purpose; not on the
roads already constructed, but by a
route well known, which would avoid
the abrupt declivities existing on our
present liighwuys. We are still but
n small community and there is nothing
in justify the construction of n rsil-
sy, which must involve a large ex-
ii'iiditure    fori   i,»i**l4>ii<>na.. u -1 I
lolling stock, to say nothing of irjain-
1 • nance. The argument of p
,,, crested inland at Granville, to the
"ii'ect that we shall be behind in the
race for supremacy, und that other
roiniutiiiitir's with railway connection
must of neei'ssity take away all our
t-ade, is mere besh. We have persistently ignored Port Moody, until
the p.-ople nf that rising city, despairing of any connection witli us,
have given the best part of their trade
to Victoria, snd there it will now remain if we hud fifty railways. What
have wo then to 1 pay a railroad? A
little passenger traffic and some small
trade thnt might employ one or two
cars per day for the conveyance, it
will be seen, therefore that if everything was favorable for tbe construe
linn of a railway, we should be paying too dear for our whistle to give
away ninety thousand dollars as our
proportion supposing that would be
accepted and tying a mili-stone round
our necks in the shape of running expenses, which would ultimately render the city bankrupt and property
worthless. On the otln-r hand, a tramway would answer every present purpose: it could be worked by private
enterprise or be provided at the public expense and leased to a company.
There would be no great outlay, and

penses. It would al-io effect another
and very important purpose, it would
make the property on the entire length
of road between its two terminal points
very valuable, because it Would deposit
passengers and their parcils at thedoors
of their residences, an accommodation
which could not, by any possibility, be
afforded by a railway. But we doubt
very much the legality of any By-law
for the disposal of the city squares. As
we have shown by a previous issue, if
the reserves are not required by the
citizens, they belong to the Dominion
Government, and we have not yet obtained permission from tho Federal authorities to dispose of them. Our im
pression is, that property holders on
the streets and squares affected or likely to be affected, by the sale, was permission granted, are not yet satisfied
that the sale would lie to their advantage
and we question very much whether
they ever will he, so that the sale, under any circumstances, can never bo
carried out. There is, however, another
and much more objeotionable feature to
the construction of a branch railway,
at present, at the espense of the city.

It is rather an unpleasant admission
to be compelled to make, but our rulers
are unequal to any role above thnt of
a strolling player ; at least, we arrive
at thn above conclusion after duly con
sidering the tactics of honest John. He
las a regular system which he follows
on every occasion and at every place
where he goes to "orate." The agents
are appointed to "bill" the place, lo
work up an excitement, and to manufacture an address ; and, when everything is ready, the "hon?st" makes his
appearance It is quite immaterial

speech for the next issue of his own papers that appear after the meeting or
the "picnic" or the gathering which he
honors with his presence. The address
s printed in full and the entire description, according to his paper, is carefully copied into the "Colonist" at Victoria. In any other part of the world
such a course of proceeding would be
deemed discreditable and disgraceful;
but our people in this Province are easily pleased ; anything iu the shape of
a man that can ".spout" is looked upon
ns n ',;/,; ai'is. But "the best laid
schemes of men and mice are gang aft
agley," nnd honest John is only mortal
and must take his chance with the rest.
Sometimes everything goes olf without
any serious inishup, and people are so
used to his peculiar system, that they
lo not think it  worth   their  while to
jive the matterssecond tl,ought. They
forget that they become a party to
honest John's deception through his paper ; that lie dors not care two straws
for their opinions, good or bad, if they
will only allow his own account of his
proceedings to pass unchallenged.
Sometimes, however, the coaxing, cajolery, or threats of his agents are unavailing to produce more I linn a perfunctory address, usually extracted by
lavish promises of Government grants
for roads, school houses, 4c, or the
hint of a place or a contract. Some
such affair occurred at Maple Ridge ;
the Reeve and councillors of that Municipality having strong impressions
about honest John, and it was quite
evident that the address was obtained
under very hard pressure and probably
with the fear of being deprived of any
aid to make their roads, strongly in
their minds. This must have been patent to honest John, who in the speech
published in his own paper is made to
say some very disagreeable things to his
audience, which he certainly would not
have said did he know that nine-tenths
of those present absolutely disliked
him, He must have given his speech
very nearly "verbatim" to the printers,
because it is so like him. There is all
the snarling and coarse sarcasm that he
would address to men whom he know
despised him. The address of the Municipal Council of Maple Ridge and
honest John's reply are unique and deserve to bo recorded, as they will be, in
his own paper. V»hot he. and his col-

We arc inucb gratilied iu being able to inform onr readers that Port Moody, or rather
the North  Ann,   has  bean definitely fixed
upon by the liuperinliinverimuntas the site
for the new Graving Dock, nnd   that operations for its const!uciioii   will soon  commence.     We lisve this information from a
gentleiqan in an official position, who hns received a letter to that effect.     This will at
once cast to the winds all tho nonsense  industriously got up by laud jobbers respecting
some mythical branch of the C P. K., which
it supposed as likely  to be constructed to

air-rema effort to get riil of their property.
Thay are perfectly aware that after works of
importance arc commenced at Port Moody,
all hopes of Belling at anything like   a   high

of purchasing lots at Port Moody, at   prices
tliey esteem their proper value, will have dis
appeared.    The establishment of the   naval
depot at Port Moody has been kept carefully
out of sight by these Knglish Buy   land-holders,   and   tho  fact   we arc now statiug will

Surely,   no   one   could lie impowd upon hy
such   ridioulous   nonsense,      Mr. Chaploau
comes, very probably, to endeavor to make
some compromise about the Esquimau dock,
and he may achieve   this by throwing   open

suitors for the lady's smiles, and both
happened to have hair of the same
golden hue, as that of that of their mutual dtilcinea. Kach begged a lock of
her hair in exchange for a lock of his
own, to which the charming creature
readily ussented; and, without touching
a single tuft of her head, managed to
elfect an exchange of parcels, by whieh
each gentlemin received it, curl of his
rival's capilaries. The Count now wears
.he Baron's hair next his heart, and the
Baron sleeps with the Count's scalp

A young Berlin Btudent the other day
paraded about one ofthe most frequented streets of Berlin in a lady's white
petticoat and a red-feather hat, with
sunshade held gracefully aloft. The
yomiffinan bad made a wager to walk
from his residence toa favorite students-
haunt in the centre ofthe town adorned
with the above mentioned costume. His
courage did not meet with due reward,
for long before his goal was reached he
had to seek refuge from the crowd in th«
nearest house, whence, without the un
wonted gard, he emerged after the
crowd had been dispersed hy the police.
What isclaimed to ho a valuable rust
protector is among (lit-recent German in
ventions. It consists of ordinary oil paint
mixed with ten per cent, of buriied magnesia, baryta, or strontia, as well as
mineral oil. This neutralizes tho free
acid ofthe paint, and the alkaline reaction protects the iron from rust.

Wren in nt ill olmurved in tho luie of Man, A
fairy who exerted a baleful iutluenco over
the island wan pursued hy h knight, nnd
only cue aped in the moment of extreme
hazard hy assuming the form of n wren. In
consemicnee of this, ou the specific anniver*
sury the islanders devoted tlu-ir energien to
the extirpation of tho fairy, and wrens were
pursued, pelted, and fired at without mercy,
The feathers were preserved with reliiji >us
care, tlie belief being that they had a peculiar
charm in preserving their posbcsBors from
shipwreck. Any fisherman who proceeded
to ien without such a safeguard was considered exceedingly foolhardy. At the present
time, on thu morrow of (/hustmas Day,
groups of bnyB proceed from door to dour
carrying a wren suspended iu the centre of
two hoops, which are decorated with evergreens and ribbons. The hoys pluck the
feathers from the unfortunate bird uud give
one to each lilw-rally disposed householder,
singing meanwhile a rhyme, of which the
burden is;

Such of the Egyptian peasants as havo
received some little culture know that the
waters of the Nile come from the "land of
the dark men"—from the mountains of Abyssinia. In the year 1874, at the time of the
war with Abyssinia, it happened that the
Nile was slow to rise, anrl the opinion was
expressed that the King of Daln-seh was fill-
filling an ancient threat of Ethiopian kings
to lead off the Nile before its entrance into
Egypt, through a canal into the Red Sea.
But the inhabitant of the more isolated inland villages has not even such lights as
these. Should you ask him as to the Nile
and its origin he would, with a grateful
glance toward heaven, answer, simply, "Min
Allah!" that is, from God, or from   heaven.
The map publishers have all they can do
to keep up with the times. The progress of
exploration the changes in frontiers, and the
building of new cities and towns make an
old atlas as inadequate for to-day's use as s,
laat year's newspaper. The map of Africa is
changing more rapidly than that of any
other part of the world. Many explorers
and pioneers there, supported by Governments, geographical aocietiet, or missionary
agencies, are all the while adding new facts
t> geographical knowledge.
