Hugh, furious at this, almost tho
first check he had ever known in any
strong desire, turned a deaf ear to his
cousin's advice, seonied prudence or
patience an cowardly and unmanly virtues altogether beneath his lofty id.-as
of honor, bade his love wait till he had
made her a home across the sea, ami
with his heart full of bitterneis w 'lit
out from his boyhood's home, swear.ng
never to return till his uncle sho aid
have repented aud acknowledged his
mistake.
Fancy that! The old man, who wis
the >'ery soul of conservatism and o -
Miliary, repenting of anything, acknowledging himself in the wrong in
any  possible   matter!

lonely and miserable; and if you d la-en

Hugh's, why, then, as you say, most

one, or died off of tever, like the other.
Any v,ay, you would never have seen
me, and how would you have liked
that,   Fraiien-/"
••riianswci'ubleargument!" returned
the husband, smiling, and when she
hud brought back the bright look Mrs.
lieresford was   happy   again.
Disappointed in their nnele's  legacy
they had uniloulitely been; startled ut
the sum total of the small debts that
her husband had allowed tu accumulate, ivist bad been' doubly disappointed
both of them, when all their hopes of
help from Hugh had been so suddenly
dashed; and yet, as the wife set forth
with infinite pains, leaning over her
husband's chair, and caressing the

gray, "and yet everything will come
light. Vou will see how I will plan

it is we owe. Vou need not be troubled, Francis dear; only set t'- work to
think how you can do your best for
this poor lad who is coming. Our
children have us, you know; so they
are, after all, much richer than he is!"
With that, and a kiss upon the thick

tug of war broke off half the ties that thjs muoh.wanted woman found her
had made the happiness ol the elder ,w(1 |jtt> daughters seated on the
mans life. He might ride, and be gUtjw patiently awaiting her help in
might hunt, and keep his four-footed
friends about him; and he .might still
have in the one nephew who remained
by him soino one whose companionship pleased, whose interest occupied
him; but with Hugh's exodus hail gone
forth, too, his power of enjoying what
was left him; thenceforth, though he
bore himself bravely before men, tbe
,S')U ire's days went heavily.
And Hugh, to the full as obstinate,
o.very whit as proud, refused all pleadings of his cousin to return, refused the
income offered through Francis, refused
everything reasonable, never caring to
realize the blank he had left in the old
house. Hugging his pride, he strug
gled on in the wild southern colony
where he had elected to try his fortune,
while his faithful love wore out her
youth and grew into faded middle age
lieforc he could write and cull her to
the home he had ut last made for  her.
Twelve yeara of waiting, four years
of wedded life, and then these two
were parted by a stronger hand than
their angry kinsman's, In his rare
communications with his cousin Hugh
had spoken of two children being taken
from him; an Australian paper alone
had borne the news of his wife's death,
linoe when no word had emtio from
him, and the letters which told him of
his uncle's death and the inheritance
ready for him when he came to claim it
hurl travailed in inure than one wrong
direction before they reached him in
the new township when he had finally
settled.
"And then," said Francis Beresford,
still gazing wistfully nt the old house
in the hazy distance, "and then he luy
dying, ami his one boy is blind!"
He said it bitterly in spite of himself. A 'und stole on his arm, mil
the voice by him said ever so softly: —
"We uuiBt make the littlo one happy
when he comes to n»!    Wo must "
"We must smooth the road for the
rich aud young, while we must plod
along with "in- burdens on our backs;
is that it,  Joan!"
"1-Vrhups. Hut listen, Frank dear.
Don't let us think of our disappointment; you know when we've been
talking it all over we never felt certain that Hugh had no children; we
only "
"We only hoped it, eh, Joan! Well,
hopes and uncertainties are done away
with now; we must face our difficulties,
such as they are, for there's no Hugh
at hand to help us. Maud must get
married with as little fuss as may be,
and Geofi' must knock off half his
fancies at Cambridge. This poor little
blind child inherits what he can never
fully enjoy, and spoils the lives of those
who are expected to be his best friends.
Oh, it's a queer  world."
"Dear old husband, it's not like
yourself to talk so! 1 think we've
gone along for years too carelessiy in
laoney matters"—(your husband might,
madam, but certainly row hadn't)—"not
exactly exacting, and yet somehow
taking it for granted that we sliould
bo much richer at your uncle's death.

CHAPTER 11.
A STn.lSOK noSIB-COMIXO.
Unsettled and somewhat troubled
lays followed that important morning's
•nst. Geoff, albeit a reasonable young
fellow in the main, rebelled a little at
he order for r trenchment that went
'in-Ill. "If neither my father nor my-
,elf is ever likely to conn' ill for Kings
brooke," he wrote, "I suppose I shall
nave in live chiefly on my wits, and I
lioultl have thought the money paid
fir    my    coach   wouldn't    have    been
thrown away.   I never can grind much
done,    And 1 shall  miss 'High-flyer,
awfully.    I 'lo think if I take  the  Bel
if  rooms   over   mine  (they   are lots
beaper, and not so very  much  worse
hen   these,)   and   work   away like a
brfok by myself, you might   coax my
father Into letting me keep my old
lorse,    Only you needn't worry your
.elf, mother; Ml try and pull your way,
if you say I   must.'
As with Geoff, so with his sister
.Maud, whose coining marriage with a
neighbouring clergyman hail absorbed
•mist of the feminine    interest   of   the
Household for weeks past. Tbe costlier items of lier trousseau were ruthlessly pruned away, leaving her, as she
aid regretfully, "an outfit no better
(haii n farmers daughter's,"
"And indeed, Maud," said her
mother, a little hurt   by this   speech,
••why should you claim anything better)
[Jxoept in the accident of your being
what it called  well born you are in   no
way mpsrior to plenty w girls round
about us.    Your poor uncle's tenant ai
the Mill Farm gave his daughter a
much grander wedding than we can
give you now; but if you can ease
your father and me by giving up these
ihings you won't mind, will you,
darling?"
Then the pretty bride elect protested that to please lier mother she would
go and be married in a lilac print gown
and the mother, whose pangs had been
many over the sacrifice of every item,
brought forth some of tho greatest treasures of her own wardrobe, supplementing the careful purchases of homelier
things with gifts of luce that a duchess
might have covered, and sundry quaint
jewels that twinkled and sparkled as
though tbey were living creatures, and
could tell their histories if they so
willed.
Thus the love of these young people
lightened Mrs. Ueresford's cares, and
took the sting out of maaiy no uncongenial task.; for what could a servant or
two, a horse more or less, or a somewhat lighter purse, signify to this lady
who had such a wealth ,of happiness
within the four walls of her, home?
"Have I not more   than   I   merit?"
ought to have remembered how   strict | s|,„ would ever ask   herself,,   accepting
the entail was, and how  impossible   it
was for the free-handed   old   man   to
save much.    We ought "
"Ah, if we only did what we ought,"
answered the. husband, quickly mollified by the rt'ssiiiing of the" woman  he

OUR   RAILWAY  LANDS.
Thus far in the reports oi proceedings
la tha- Dominion Parliament now in
session, we have seen no account of any
tin 1 being introduced providing for the
disposal of lands along the forty-mile
railway bait, within this Province. We
earnestly hope that there is to be no
more delay in tl is matter. Of course,
Ihe lands Act of 1883 coul I not, and
was never inrended 10, apply to this
Province. It was Iramed to meet the
requirements of the North-west Territories We have never been able to see
why tbe lands in this Briiish Co umbia
portion of the railway belt were not,
long since, thrown upon the m >rkct.
There has been a mysterv, difficult of
solution, in that they were not so thrown
Open Wo years ago, at least. Wiihin
that time a large nutiber of peop'e have
squatted, wifli'the view of becoming, in
good faith, actua' and permanent set lers,
snd with (he hope that the Government
snd Parliament of Canada* wntrli. deal
with their claims in the spirit of justice
and fairness. They b ve waned in sus-
pensea-Tfnin mo 1(1 to month and from
week to week;—but still, notwithstanding
tepeated an 1 frequent reports 10 the contrary, the f)nmin:on Government I as
made no certain sign indicating a fixed
policy in the matter. We won I 1 conjure Ministers anil Members of Par'ia-
ment, in that spirit of juslicc by which
we iriu.t suppose them all 10 Ih animrt-
ed, in all such cases, not 10 suffer any
further delays in seitling these poor
men's claims, and in relieving them
from their \eitK eontinoJd and painful
suspense. To ihese Legislators and Administrators sit h delays fln/ be a ma ter
of indifference, or even of spori; but,
like the pe red frogs in the fable, 10 ibe
squatters it is death. In the case ot
every one of then, the suspense must
be a cause of loss, as well as of most
provoking irritation.
In one special way, this delay is materially retarding ihe development of the
eauntry's agricultural resources. Whin
a squatter lakes possession of a lot of
previously unoccupied land, and has no
assur nee that he »ill be allowed 10 hold
it, he will restrict himse'f 10 the least
possible expense in clearing up and ith-
proving that land. Especially will this
be the case In soch a confflrv as tb 1
about Port Moody, where the lands are
so heavily timbered, nd so expensive
to be brought under cultivation. He
wi 1 naturally clear up only a little patch
of ground, and Upoiir it erect a cheap
residence, and then set himse f to work
ai some o her occupation, or, at all
events, endeavor o put in time wiih as
little out ay as possible until be learns
what the decision is to be. We need not
go far from the shores oi Por Moody to
find that such is ihe ru'e in tlreee cases
Yet, doubtless, if he squader knew what
was to be his fate, he would set himself
vigorously to work in improving ana
enlarging ihe cultivation of bis land, nci
only ti his own great advantage, but to
the Benefit of the public ai large.
There is ano'her mode in wh cm'this
rong delay in dialing with the lands in
question, has been slill more detrimental to the interesis of this Province. It
is notorious that, within the last two
years, people have come into lirilish
Columbia, from the Eastern I'rovinces
and the United Stales, by hundreds and
thousands, with- the full intent of making this their permanent licvfie — men
who, lor the most part, were staid, practical farmers, ofren possessed 1 f very
considerable means,-just the diss of
men. in short, that ihe Province requires
to fill up its'vacant places; but who, on
learn ng ihe slate of the land question,
have left ihe country in disgust. I may
be asked: why ccu'd not these immigrants settle themselves elsewhere than
on railway lands? No man, except of
an hermit nature is disposed to burv
himsell in the interior, out of reach of
all facilities ef .communication wiih the
rest of the word; and these railway
lands not only embrace [He railway belt
itself, for a depth of .twenty miles on
each side, and over the whole breadth of
the Province; but they in like manner
enclose the navigable r raser and' the
Thompson It lias been a most damaging thing for the interests of this'Province, having this great trxt, comprising
much of the best lands in Columbia,
thus long-and obstinately li c\ed against
the scalers; but we earnestly pray that
they may remain thus locked no longer.
THAT FORT SIMPSON LAND
OPKKAHIO*.
A certain British Columbiiiivpolitical
scandal, which originated some- time
back, has recently been revived amongst
our fellow-laborers of the Provincial
j>reS8. We (eferto what is called by
various names, but wh ch we shall designate as the Fort Simpson Land Operation. As this scandal dates from a
period -long before tbe -Port Moody
flAZaMTK had its birth, we may, for our
ment of its origin and history.
Some years ago, it it said—and doub -
less not withoui some foundation—that
cer ain   individuals,   principally-   about
Victoria, the vilage capital of ibis Province, became seized with a desire to
possess some real estate in ibe imroedi*
ate vicinity of fort .'impson.    Some
little movements were made in the way
of staking off boundaries, localizing and
apportioning  the   desired   lauds;   and
eventually ihey were in due form,  applied   for   at the proper   office.    Put
mean win 9 rli?   I rovincial   Administration of lhat day  passed an  Older in
Counci1, reserving V ese same lands to
the Crown.     I he ostensible, or avowed,
reason for this leservation was - an intimation from ihe iJoniiiilnn Government
lhat the projicted Canadian Pacific rail
ro d might yet take the norlhcrn route,
via the Peace and  Skcena  rivers,   and
1 come out at Foil —and Port—S.mps.on
as its Pacific terminus.    In   course  of
lime it was resolved lhat a more south
em foute should be "dopt d, eilhei  following the lower I'nuer, or  Mine Inlet.
Il is highlv probable th l ibis  re olve
caused some pangs to ihe enterprising
applicants in question;   for ihey could
not but know all about   th:   "bailie  of
tbe routes "    I ul now ii  teciiie.l   tli.it
iheir game was up- at least  fur a lime
'1'in.e passed on, and with its other
changes, brought the presen Columbian
administration Imo power.   One mom.
ing, and not many months ago, die public became suddenly aware that ibe  reserve Had been "lifted" font   llie Fort
Simpson  lands.     I'ui,  simultaneously
with ibis informaiion,  the  public  also
became an are of ihe fact that   bese
mds, or the best of ihem, li d alieady
been applied for  by  certain   members
and friends  of ihe  I real  Government,
and by ih se wh un it inighi be dangerous to drive imo open an 1 determined
enmity.    And now Me cla-s of those
whocriiiciic this transaction, denounce
it as a vile job, and "'IgtTm'i.c il as " he
Foil Simpson s eal;'  whilst llie Government and their adherents deoare.il a
perfectly right and  hnnnrab e  Iransac
lion.    Where lies ihe tru h ?
In looling a the whole affair #fth—
we hope—an imparlia etc, and with no
desire to al ribute laubs and crimes
where ihey do not lie, we cannot yet
fai. to nr.e tin.- fact, most damaging to
ihe reputation of be Inca Mi istcrs.
There was no intimation through lb- official Gazelle -no information through
iny other channel likely to bring it lo
the knowledge of llie general public,—
that ihe reservation had been taken off
the lartds in ques ion. When first thai
public became aware that the reserve
had been ' lifted," the lands which it had
covered bad a'readv been "scooped Up'1
—secured 10 Ministerial adbercii s and
friends. To contend — as has been done
—lhat the failure to Gaieiti, or otherwise
publish, ihe removal of the reservation
in this case, was merely an uniinponant
instance of venial official m gleet and
heedlessness; hat il has impaired no interests; and tlia', in shori, ii has not  af-
Jiaviug committed many criun s. From
statements of which they were potsess-
ed, they 1 ad every reasonable ground
lor believing b;ni to be the murderer.
aVow th, 11, these men who constituted
themselves |udge, jury and executioner,
expect no doubt to be protected by the
law in the peaceable possession of their
farms and oxen, il they have any, and
yet they have the assurance to set it
aside and assume all its powers when it
suits their fancy ! Tbey would expect
justice and a fair bearing in their own
persons—and will gel it if tbey are
caught—aud yet tbey deny it lo tbe
Indian Luie. Did tbey search tl e per
son of Luie 1 Was any of the Irooty
found upon him? Did tbey tl ey coin-
pure the murks on the murdered man
Hell with uny deadly weapon in the
posscBsioM of Luie 1 Dill they mark
the footsteps around Pell's dwelling end
compare them with Lola's thi ea or
mocassins ? So far as any evidence exists, we are not aware that uny of the
above  questions have   I een   un wind.
Thus, at the present moment, we have
no just ground for I elieving thnl Luie
wus the murderer of BelL Put let us
look nt the all'nir from another [ oint of
view, and for that purpose we will suppose a case. Let us then suppose that
one of the seventy men w ho I anged
Luie—perhaps the very man who put
ihe rope round his neck —was a worthless villain, who had murdered many
people for plunder in his time. He
hud ascertained thai Bell hud money
by him, and was likely to be u'one on
the night of the murder. He knew,
also, that Luie was about, Very likely
expecting that Luie would prowl in
Bell's vicinity. He ut once, proceeds
to Bell's, despatches him wi h ut a
moment's loss of time, teounw the
booty and gets safely back to Ills own
shanty, then rushes out nnd gives the
alurm. The farmers assemble round
poor Bell's dwelling, where the lifiiiible
nature of the crime renders them ready
to execute—according to their ideas-
justice on the person of anyone to
whom the crime oould be attributed.
The real murderer finds someone who
saw Luie ; the idea is caught up like
wild-lire. The sheriff and his posse
start in pursuit of Luie. . Luie is informed by somebody thai they are
ufter him, and he knows there ure
many reasons why they may be be
crosses the line und is ultimately captured at SuiuAss and placed securely
in custody of the proper British authorities, The real murderer begins
to think that the production of Luie
Slid the probable failure of evidence
against him would be likely to turn
suspicion in another direction, and this
might result in bis own conviction,
He therefore, in terms such as many
of our old pjoueers can remember, ami
such as are commonly used by murderous vagabonds ns himself, incites
his neighbors to arm and disguise
themselves und take the law into their
own hands, under the pretense thai
otherwise   the   Indian   might   escape
fecied the u timate results; is to get offifmm justice.    The Indian is disposed
one of those cheer, little toughers, ibe
retainers of which are usually advised tn
"ell them to ihe ma ines." No si«e
mon will real y believe such a yarn,
no mailer what he may pre end to believe. J1,does not at all belter ihe case
if the perpetrators of this alleged job
plead that they had a precedent for iheir
action in ibis mat'er; and that a former
Administration failed to Gazette ihe imposition of the reserve. We do noi
know if this was ihe case or not; but even
if so, it his but slight bearing upon ihe
later default. Ihcre is an immense
difference between ihe uvo cases; and
il is so obvious lhat we will nol tiweli
upon lit. To do so, would insult our
common sense readers. In the one case,
no private inter sis could be damaged:
in the other case, most imponant interesis could be, and, as is declared, were
ruined To exp'ain away the iniquity
of ihis Fort SimpsQtio. cration the local
Administration will .require 10 resort to
some rules of ethics .never before recog
nized.
THE   LYNCHING   AFFAIR   AT
SUMASS.
[from die Mil land t.iisrdl.n.1
The last information on this very extraordinary affair consists in the inquetst
.on the body of the Indian, and the
carefully associated fact that he was a
very bad character; and has no friends
anywhere .about the scene of his supposed crime .ar hanging. The fact that
that the Indian .had no friends is-highly probable from the additional- fact
that he was hanged; trud.it iSalSo extremely probable thatheihad no friends
of sufficient strength or inflsejice in the
vicinity, or the cowardly assassins wi.o
strung him up would have thought
•fwice before they attempted any such
daring crime. Let ut look at the matter as the outlaws—for outlaws they
are henceforth, on either side of the
forty-ninth parallel—would have us re-
irf, mid so far the tracks are cowied
up- Tbe question is, are the autjiori
tics on the other side of the luie alive
to these possibilities, and will they
have* thorough investigation! We
do not believe they will. But of one
thing we may be certain,—that the
mutter has no,t dropped so far as the
Dominion Government  is concerned.
An investigation will be held, .snd the
United States Government will be
urged to enquire into the allkir. It
may end either iu no case for want
,of evidence, or some poor iinmieiit
fellow who wus forced into the gang
much against his will mny be made
the scape-goat; but it will be a long
time before the Susiass lynching affair will be disposed of, anil mny raise
questions involving important international laws.
(THE TELEGRAPH.
[From the M.iii.Biid Gu r li-n.J
It must be very gratifying to the
people of this Province to know that a
handsome sum is .down in the Dominion estimates, for the junction of tlV
telegraph system of the Northwest
Territory, connectirig\\vjth eastern Canada, and British GqUunlria. It will
render our system- Conxplete, and the
large consequent additional revenue
will permit of additional and efficient
officers. At present tlie telegraph
system jn this Province 13 .only in an
incipient»state, like others .of our public
offices, and consequently it does not
pay. The department at Ottawa were
led tu believe that we were in a very
early stage of onr existence, and that
third, fourth or -fifth rate establishments'would answer out purpose. This
is a mistake in two ways: our population, as a whole, is ahead of any like
number of people in any other portion
of Canada, for intelligence and enterprise, and our cftstem brethren cannot
gord it.    This Indian Luio was a notor-f be surprised if we should estimate them
on th^ httii "i tin* officials tin
us.   Another and more Important mot*
ter is this; that the ecouoinicul mtf
upon which the ' s'a'li'il.nKiit is con*
dacted here, brings about the very i ■ •
jeciiou wio-xl itt Ottawa, to its extoi
sion; people have no incentive to use
it, and after a time they do not use it
at all. When the system is complete
and we obtain our European news
through tliat chanuel, the whole ailair
will be different, and even then care
will have to be taken that it is completely dissociated from the American
system, or our people will continue to
use the latter from bubit: there really
being little or no difference in the di-
pat* lies. So far as the telegrams received from the Aw>ociatrd I'rcss by
one of our Victoria papafl are concein-
i-d, tliey are littli- bettrr than a tniighd
muss of absurdities, lespaxdlng foreign
Items of news. Tiny may pass muster
with the leaden <>f such | |pen around
the bar roomstuve, hut for the merchant
or intelligent ineclianic they are only a
luise d.hiMoii mid a  Mian1.     We   trust!
as soon as onr own system is perfect,
that they will remain "exclusiveto the
Cofo'iis/," The fact is that these dispatches are manufactured in ihe [\ S.
for the most part, and for United
States journals. The natural consfl
quenoe is tliat the bulk of the news refers to matters connected witn the
United States and Am'TJciui people.
lf we get uny news from Germany, Sar-
gent'q difficulty with Bismarck about
American pork, and the Leaker resolution, OCCUpiCfl all the space. If we get
any from Prance, it is all about Mrs.
Bonanza Mackey and her evening parties: from Turkey, it is all about Minister Wallace and the wonderful thing!
he does, which we never hear about except in the papers, if from JLondou,
it is almost entirely occupied wjth Miss
.Anderson and h.r conquests. An occasional attempt, by way of diversion,
is made to puff up the Irish Nationalist
cause, and the terrible dangers impend
ing to Kngland from this .source ; hut
such rubbish has been tl(^ stand by of
American journalism for tin? last iifty
years, so we have no reason to complain. If we complain and say, why do
you pay for such rubbish as this? this
cannot be called news. The recipient
will tell you : 1 am obliged to take jt,
or I could get none and you always
get some foreign news along with it.
Now, this is the very point we are par
ticulaHy riled about. The items referring to Egypt, for instapoe, are wholly
unreliable, A sensational description
of the capture of some place is given,
with detailed account of the horrors
perpetrated by the rebels in the butch
wy of the garrison, Which ih   is found
necessary to contradict in the following
day's tejegram. The movements bf
troops and the proposed action of the
armies av.d navies are in great part incorrect, because merely guessed at. As
for £he names of pjacea, generals, ministers, and so forth, they are generally
so delightfully mixed up that the reader is puzzled to know what it all
means. The other day, a Turkish con
tingent was to lie recruited for the
army in Egypt, in Ahbahyi / Admiral
Courhet, who is supposed to be lighting for the I rench in Tonquin, was
made to figure in an attack o;i the
Mahdi's forces up .some river in Egypt.
The news from the United States,
•vliich occupies the largest space in our
journals, is mainly composed of murders, suicides, horrible accidents, divorce CS^es, social scandals, or the exploits of some celel.rated courtezan.
Would it not he far hetter that we received none of this news ! It is pineal under loud headings, and by eatn-
in^, io tln'sAjase ,cjf jj|C. yoking, to & morbid app1 tite, completely tinlits them for
the iv eption of good, wholesome in-
.tejh'ctual food. The sooner our own
system is complete, the better ; nol
only, as we hop", for a batter class of
news, but that it shall be national.

WILLIAM INSI.EV. .... I'roprlelor
Rocky Point Hotel,
PORT    MOODY.
The old Abbey nf BuckfaHt, which was
founded by tbe Benedictine* in the old Sax-
Oil d.'iys but in the time uf King .'.mute
nd pt-d the ( iuteri-i-in reform, ll about to bu
roatortd. At the disaolutirni of inooMtarlea
the lonfs were stripneil of tlieir lead, and for
two oeutttriej the iiuildiu^a aouui to have
been utm i M a quarry for the neighborhood,
the "Abbott'*- Tower" alone being sp.rei..
Xow a community of Benedictines, driven
from Ftauup, havo arrived in prcci-cly thu
same giwb in which their brethren weredriv-
en away by bluff King Hal. They havo resolved to rrntoie the edifice, have unenrthed
the f.iiindiitioiis of the old church, 2.>0 by u.)
fcor. wide, and, after restoring the Abbott's
Tower, will rebuild on the old lines.
What ia aaid to bo the truth is now told
about the to.Hi re of tlie pugilists Mitchell
and Sbvla to Pglit in New Mexico last full.
When Mt tone. I was training in Colorado he
heard that Slade, liacked by .Sullivan, was
to tfikt.- a gang of eighty or ninety New York
roughs to see that the fight win in hia favor. Theyw'iieto break down the ropes
and force the leferoe to decide in favor of
their man if .Mitchell showed any signs of
winning. Tl'iy could easily have act-om*
plished this in Missouri nr Kan-ms, as they
were acijuamt d with the authorities there.
Mitt-hell anw hat lie hadn't a gln-st of a
chance under those conditions, and insisted
that the fight tshould take pi.ice either in
Colorado or New Mexico. lie had friends
there who lu d won money on several
matches, ail handy with the pistol. These
men volunteered their assistance. The Slade
party got news of the phin and rinsed objections. M fcuhell insisted, and, after much
talk, the fight was abandoned.
The Paris correspondent of the London
Times writes :—"1 saw to-day (Jan. !23rd|at
Munkaezy's studio, the new picture which
the great, mod in master is now finishing.
The subject of it is 'Christ ou Calvary.' This
solemn and touching picture, which will be
exhibi ed hen at Easter in a rocm constructed specially for it, will certainly produce as
great an impn ssion in the artistic world as
hi-* 'Chri-st bef* re Pilate.' The painter depicts the scene where the .Saviour has just
expir d. The ky is black with clouds and
streaked with lightning, and beyond the
horizon at .leru alem the veil of the Temple
is seen rent in wain. Jesus Christ, pale in
death, and inclining forward, has given up
tho ghost. The centurion has dropped iu
terror beside t! o cross. Mary, the mother,
on nerknesj, is bathing in tears tmr son's
fu»».t. Mary Magdalen, her golden huir
hanging lo >se.y over her shoulders, her face
in her h-inds, i- also on her k.ieee before the
cross. John, overwhelmed wiih grief, is on
the other side, - nd a Jewish woman looks
on, a aad upect. tor of the crucifixion."
The death ia announced from Florence of
Ciambattis'n Ciuli&ui, one of the great
Dante scholars of Italy-or Uantiste, as the
Dante scholars ore to call themselves.   The
late King of Sax<>uy, iiimselt a Uantiste,
who wrote on the great Fh-ietitine and
tran-dated his Works into l.cnnan under a
pseudonym, loved the incognito, and often
travelled thus with the Queen. Once when
on b -ard a Rhine steamer, they overheard a
knot of civitliaus discussing some literary
theme. Tlie King joined the circle and en-
t'-red into the debate, di pluying rich and
varied literary knowledge. After aome time
he went away, and during his absence mie
of the party addressed the Queen with a
query as to who her husband was, for surely
he inu>.t be a man of literary note, "C'eat
into mari," said the Queen, replying in the
language in which the whole conversation
had beeu earned on, "et inon mari est le
premier Dantist d'Allemagne." There was
almost a scandal among the little circle at
the thought that they should have talked bo
long ami familiarly with a dentist, for of
tbe paity were some petty Herman nobles,
who are snobs of the lirst water. The
Queen noticed this change of front with
some amusement, and when the King rejoined her she whispered s tn-t hiim into his
ear, at which he nodded and spoke no more.
Soon after tho steamer stopped at a little
station. Three nr four personages in full
gala costume stepped on board, went up to
their Majesties, bowed humbly, and craved
that they would halt to see the celebrities
of their town. Renewed surprise a'lvng the .
circle of disputants, tine of Them, a French- j
man, approached one of the dignitaries who j
had spoken to the snpp -sed dentist and;
asked, pointing to the King, ' Mnis, e'est
vraiment le premier deiitiste d'AUenv gne I"
''Oiii, monsieur."    "Ft le nom ?"    "CYifc le t
K6i dt* NiaXf !"
