"Deloro proceetilng  further,"    pur-
suosi madame, "I would have  those
wills destroyed.    I think that would
be proper."
"Entirely proper."
"Then you may burn them."
Then* had  hes'ii  a lire in the mar-
ble-tramed fire-placo, as Rachel   had
felt chilly, and  embers      wero     still
alive upon the hoiirth.    Halford had
arison,   and  was proceeding   toward
the fire-place wiih  the papers   when
his clerk touched him upon tho arm.
"Would it not be well, sir, to have
a witness to this deed?"
Tho lawyer turned nnsi looked upon
his clerk.
"You and I," pursued Hugo, "ns
attorney nnd clerk, have a cortuln le-
gul interest in this mntter. Our venerable and respscted client may not,
when the time of need shall como,
be with us to declare that sho ordered tho destruction of those important Instruments, I might summon tho womnn who brought mo
•'It may bo well," said the attorney, after a pause. "You may call
the servant."
.So Casper Hugo went out and
found Lora, and brought her In,
and she was made to understand the
nature of the work which wivs to be
done, and to ulso understand thnt it
was dssno by order of madame. Then
the papers wore cssnsigned to the
(lames, and when they had been utterly consume-!, Lora was suffered to
And now came the making of a new
will—tho work for which tho lawyer
had been summoned. The work was
simple. Of debts, 'thero wero none
to pay. A legacy of two thousand
dollars was set slown for John Downey, the faithful gardener, and a legacy of one thousand dollnrs for Johanna, hia wife. Then ten thousand
dollnrs were set down ns a bequest
to her faithful friend and attorney,
Adam Halford. A few minor legacies were noted, and then the great
bulk of propeity, of all kinds and descriptions, was given to "My adopted and well-beloved child, called
Christino St. t'luir." And said
Christine was chnrged that the servants of the household wero to be
her sacred charge while they lived.
Madame Rachel dictated the chief
points; Mr. Halford suggested the
proper legal phraseology, and Casper Hugo wrote it down upon the
white, parchment-like paper. When
this had been dono, the will wm
ready for signing and witnessing.
Madame Rachel was notional upon
this point. She did not caro that
hor neighbors should know her business. She proposed first that John j
Downey and his wife should come in
and bo witnesses, but Halford Bug-
(tested that as thev were interested :
as legatees, it would hardly bo pro- j
per, so two men who were nt work
under Downey's charge were cnllcd in,
and with Casper Hugo, three disin- |
tcrcstcd witnesses were thus obtain- !
cd. These two men were Kben Sanders and Seth I'uvis.both New Hampshire men, who had worked in the '
gardens and upon tho lawns of the .
Drook8ide for two or three years.
Rachel St. Clair wroto her own j
name against the blue senl, and the I
witnesses then subscribed their |
mimes, after wl ch the luwyer gave |
tho legal finish.
"You will take the will," said
Rachel, "nnd make nn attested copy,
nnd, utilil 1 call for i'. you muy
place it with  my other papers."
When tho business luul hi*cn linish-
ed, the attorney and his clerk withdrew,
"Miss Christine is quite an heiress," remarked Casper Hugo, sis they
sti'|i|ia.ai mit from Ihs* piazza
"The richest of nny I know," ro-
sponded Halford "And she is worthy, tiso,' ne added, with emphasis,
Tho clerk was lust in Lis own
thoughts, und muili) no further remark.
It wns very neur nighl when Mr.
Halford and his clerk alighted from
the street-car ut Bcollay'a Building
and proceeded tai ths'ir lail'ico on
Court street. Ths ollice was on the
second floor of a block since torn
away to mako room for a barnlike
structure of marble—an office dingy
and littered, but easy of access, and
in the centrs of much business. The
lawyer unlocked an iron door upon
the face of the rear wall, and having sn ung lt opeb, another door,
ulso of iron, was revealed,
ansl this waa the entrance
to a fireproof safe, when' valuable and important documents
were kept. When the newly mads
will and accompanying papers hud
been deposited in un oaken drawer
upon which was pasted a slip of paper bearing the written name "St.
Clair," and tho doors hnd boon re-
closed and re locked Halford turned
to his clerk.
"Hugo," he said, "you will understand that this client ls ono of the
most valuable on my list. 1 think I
may say the most valuable. I shall
not live forever, and who knows but
that you may succeed ms ln business—"
The clerk Interrupted his employer
by a shake of tho head.
"No, no, Mr. Halford. I shall not
settle in Doston. And let us hope
you may be spared for many a long
yonr to come. You arc still hearty
nnd strong, and your temperate life
gives promise of increasing usefulness
ninl honors."
Tho said  lawyer was ris.t   Insensible j
to sucli Mattery, und her regarded his
clerk w,th a benign appreciation,
lie your choi'.e uf local i am what
it will," he said, "you Will BUrol>
sinsced. And yet I could wish that
vbaii might consent, to remain with
me. Dut wo will let that Pass, nines-*
you shake your head ugain. I wus
remarking to you concerning our
client -Madame St. Clair. She has
her peculiarities, us you may huvo
observed! and you nre awaro that tho
lirsi study of an attorney should be
to ciTommoclate himself to tho Idiosyncrasies Of those whom ho wsiulsl
truly servo. Mailaino St. Clair is
anxious that her pri-. ali' uffalr-e
shoulil not bo known. .She shrinks
from lining mado the theme of gossip,
as she shrinks from public gaze, You
will  bear this in mind nnil  keep your
knowledge to yourself. Thero is one
s.ifo rulo to follow—1 hnve followed
il ull my life, und you can adopt it
with profit: When you huvo takon a
client, consider that the details of
sai.I client's business are locked In
your inmost bosom, and that your
client alone hus the key."
Hugo intimated that lie hud nl-
ready resolved upon such a course.
"And," ho added, "be sure that I
hold Iho privacy of your business, to
which I am necessarily admitted, us
something sacred and inviolnte."
"I think we understand ono unother," snld Halford, with a commendatory smile- "Of course, people
hnvo seen us go to Madame St.
Clair's house; nnd it is generally
known that sho is failing. The. curious will bo inclined to usk tpies-
tions, and those who are not. curious are very few."
"I understand perfectly." returned
Caspar. "Thai which is locked in
yssiir safe is to ine a sacred mystery."
As    Adam    Halford    regarded   his
rl rk, ho beheld a mnn in appearance
littln  less  than  u  saint.      So  Adam
Halford    himself thought.    You may
say,   perhaps,     thnt    Adam  Halford
wus not  a student of human  nature
—that   he    could not rend physiognomy.    Allow mo to say that in  an
adjoining otlico was a professor   who
had mude physiognomy a study, and
who hnsl often been called Into court
to    testify   as   un     expert  upon the
j Character of hand-writing.     The pro-
! fi'ASor  hud  marked  Hugo  well,     and
i luul  studied  him  carefully,   und      hi'
i had said of him:
"That man, If he had an end to

"With bis Interest secured, I would

"But with his interest in opposition to .vou'.'''
"Tai trust hlm then would be \u

And among them ull there wns not I
a suspicion that I aspar Hugo had an '
interest     in opposition to ths* Interests  of  his  employer,   or  to   those  .if
his clienls; nnd so the belief was
general that old Adam Halford had
gociired the services of a most excellent und trustworthy clerk.
II was dusk when tho luwyer and
his clerk hnd completed their business for the day. and they came out,
from the ofliro together. A brief
es inference nt tho lower sloor upon a
paiticular item In the morrow's routine, and then they separated, Mr.
Halford going toward Washington

South  End.
Hugo stood upon the sidewalk and
watched his employer until be had

saloon and got a glass of brandy,
and as ho ..une out he turned down
llanos or Street, thenco into Portland,
until ho arrived at a narrow, dingy
alloy, the entrance to whloh was beneath a dilapidated wooden arch.
Down this alley ho found a door
which ho opened with a latch-key,
ninl, upon the si'consl floor of the
dwelling thus entered, he found the
apartment he sought, It was a respectable furnishi'd room, and opening from it were two small bedchambers, which appeared to com-
pli'lo the suite. It wus a retired
place, shut out from ull passing observation, und tho outer door by
which Hugo hnd come in and the
stairs he hnd ascended had no other

Thero' wus the same Shape of hend I
and the sumo general contour of fea- j

alike, allowing for tho tendency to
corpulence in tho elder. It is safe to
say that they wore father and son.
He of the dressing-gown and slippers
culled himself "Alexander Hugo."
Dut his name was not in the city

of his lodging-place. It must have
been by another name.
"Caspar," spoke tho elder man,
after ho had caught a view of the
other's fuce by tho fading light, "you
havo been fortunate."
Tho young man, who had drawn  a
chair    for    tho    purpose    of sitting
down, stopped in his movement, and
regarded his father attentively.
"What makes you think so?"
"I can see it in your eye."
"Do   I   show    any sign of jubilation?"
"No. You are too woll schooled
for that. Dut I can see that a bur-
don of doubt hus been removed. I
should judge, from your looks, that
you had discovered a now aiid promising path."

A light luncheon sufficed for their
supper. Tho larder of thoir chambers was not extensively supplied,
but this was not from a spirit of
penury nor yet from a lack of tho
love of creature comforts. They
feasted claowhere. Ths meal was dispatched, a candle and pipes lighted,
and then Caspar remarked, with a
darkening smile:
"You are a good reader of physiognomy, governor. Can you tell me
what particular stone I have turned
over in our path?"
"No, Caspar," replied the parent.
"I wait to learn from your lips.
Your face simply reveals the existence of a fact; your lips must eluci-
"Well," suid the son, with another
smile—a smile <if sinister import—"I
have got our work well in hand. By
an extraordinary stroke of good fortune, I have been enabled to select a
euro vantage ground, and when the
timo comes. I think wo shall be oblo
to strike an effectual blow."
"Go on, my boy, let mo hear the
whole story."
Caspar seemed miserly of his good
news. He had a budget so much
ris'her thnn conld hnve bi'cn possibly
anticipated, thut he wns slow to open it. Ho disliked to give to his
father sucli a volume of golden promise at a single sitting, but after n
time he conce tinted his thoughts
ami  finally answered:
"Well,    governor,    In   a nut-shell,
then,  hers it is     This very day    wo
have been out to the Brookside—Halford  ssnd I—and  we hnve dono   some
very importnnt  business for Madame
Rachel.    First, hy her order, we destroyed two old wills—the only wills
of  her  making  tha'ii  existing.     After
that, she dictated a new will, which
I wrote out in form."
"And by that  will—"
"As wn hail supposed," replied Caspar t.i his father's implied question,
"she leaves everything to her udopt-
ed child,   Christ ine.     A  few  legacies
nro given  in  olher    directions;     hut
I they     are    picayunes  iu   comparison
I with the bulk of the property."
"Uss you know, my son, how much
property there really ls?"
"It cunnot vary much from the es-
timnti> I gave you a week ago. It
will foot up not far from two millions."
Alexander Hugo rubbed his hands
ta>t;ether with a griping motion, and
his slark eyes gleamed expectantly.
"Where is tho new will?" he usked.
"In our office. We are to make a
copy, nnd return thc original to Madame Rachel."
A brief silence ensued, which was
broken by the father:
"Have you planned further? Will
the copy be made'"
"Not if I can prevent it," answered Caspar, "Dut, if I am forced to
make it, be sure I shall inform my-
sell of the place of its deposit. However, wo must act in tho future as
circumstances shnll direct. Our work
is well commenced, and we will not
"Thero were witnesses to tho will,
of course?"
"Yoa, two hayseeds who n * employed upon the place. They are
from Now Hampshire; and I doubt if
they nro known in this section be-
yonsl tho Drookside. It will not bs
much troublo to silence them."
Another pause, at tho end of which
Alexander nsked:
"Did you see the girl?"
"You mean Christine?"
"I barely caught a glimpso of her
as I was coming uwny.
"And do you think her very handsome'.'"
" 'Handsome' is no word for It."
"Do you still think of hv as you
Caspar's eyes finshed nnd the warm
blnosl mounted to his cheek nnd temple. His hands were clutched nir-
vously, nnd he ground his feet upon
the floor.
"1 will havo that airl." he said,
"if the deeti ls within my power. I
want her for two reasons: In ihe
first place, 1 want her for her beauty; und, in tho next place, with her
in our keeping, either us my wife or
otherwise, our work will be more
safely accomplished. If our work
eucceods us 1 hope, she cannot stand
in our way. If 1 can so manage that
all traces of this new will are obliterated, we may snap our fingers at
all the opposition the law can put in
our path. But let her pass for tlie
present. She is engaged to a young
man of the name of Waybrook—I'aul
Wuybrook—son of a Milk street Jobber. I have seen ths fellow, ond he
is of good blood. Wc mny have to
tackle him beforo wa are through
with our work. If we do, I shall
leave him to you."
"All right." responded the father.
"ilo sure I Will do my part. Dy my
life, I'nsi.r' we begin to see light
ahead. Our labor is likely to bo

"If we are persistent and circumspect yes," replied tho son, With a
firm closing of tlio lips, "llut we
have work before us; and we must
shut onr eyos to all conseipiences except success.'
Alexiimler Hugo nrose and laid his
hand upon his son's shoulder.
"Depend upon me, my boy, for
any work you mny huve in hand."
"t told you of the two witnesses
to tho will," snld Caspar, looking
up. "Will yon tako them upon your
hands? Remember, I have the old
luwyer and the written documents to

"Put mo on their track, and I will

They adjourned to one of the
smaller rooms, and when they enwirg-
rd thence, there had occurred a
transformation as surprising as it
wos caiinpleto. Caspar hud donned a
rough suit of soiled and patched cotton stuff, such as was worn by the
very lowest rank of day-laborers,
and upon his head he had placed a
wig of matted, sandy hair, with
deep side-whiskers to match. He hud
soiled his hands and penciled dingy
lines upon his face; and, as he now
stood, even Adam Halford could not
huve discovered a single trace of the
likeness of his confidential clerk. The
further waa equally well disguised,
and together the two set forth, taking a Roxbury horse-car on Cornhill, and riding upon the platform.
Arrived at the end of the rail, they
left the car, and made their way to
the Drookside, proceeding directly to
ths dwelling of the gardener,
they found at home.
"We havo come," said Caspar, assuming a coarseness of speech, "to
see if we can hire some men to go
out to Kansas to work on a railroad."
"Ye can't hire me," replied Downey, emphatically.
"Wo had not thought of such a
thing," sold Caspar, with a smile ;
"but we were informed that there
wero two men at work here whose
.iob with you was nearly at an end.
We want to hire Americans if we
cun, because we can offer them inducements tn settle out there."
Downey looked curiously at the
garbs of the two men who thus proposed to otter big inducements in the
wuy of settlement. Hugo 'noticed the
look,  and understood its meaning.
"I am doing an errand for my employer," he said, "and am myself
just from the gravel-pit. He heard
the names of the two men who were
at work for you—"
".Sunders and Davis?" interrupted
the gardener.
"Yes, those are the men."
"Well, they are in the house at
this moment., and you can see them
for yourself.   Como in."
The tw0 Hugos followed Downey
into tho cot, where they wcere introduced to Eben Sanders and Seth
Davis. The New Hampshire men listened to the proposition of the visitors, and respectfully declined to entertain the terms.
"Dut," suggested Caspar, "s ippo e
wo should    have   something    better— !
something worth  your    while—whero
might wo find you?"
" 'Tain't very likely you can   have
anything  o'the  kind,"  answered Kb- j
en  Sunders,     honestly:     "but    you'll
find us here,  if you  wants to ss o   us,
aay time afore the snow flies."
And with this information, the \ is-
itore arose to depart.
"Don't be too sure," said Caspar,
with a smile, as he stood at the
door. "There's big pickings out in
Kansas and Colorado, Mun grow rich
there in a year. But never mind
now. If I hear of n better chance,
and our employer has the bestowal
of it, we may call again. If I
can't come myself, my friend, Mr.
Stepper, will come"
Going out from the gardencr.'s cot,
the father proceeded to the highway,
while the son went up to the stono
cottage, whcio he contrived to rul!
Lora to the door. He pretended that
ho had been sent bv a neighbor, to
seo if John Downey could be hirsxl
for a fow days, to work in a gnrslen;
and the servant was able to answer
him emphatically in the negative.
Then tho tramp ventured upon tho
sickness of the mistress, of which he
had heard, and before he went awuy,
he hud learned thut Madame Rachel
was no better, und that three doctors had been th"io during the evening. She hnd hud another fit, and
for a time she hud been git en up as
dan al.
When Caspar Hugo rejoined his
father, he soldi: .
"I think our work has commenced
in earnest. Madame Rachel is near
her end.   You must stay here and es
'to say—I have a story to tell you.
Hush! lt will be better for me to

Ruise my pillows so that 1 can look

I With gentle touch, Christine arranged the pillows, after which she
took a seat so that the woman could
look easily into her face. Riuhol
had, on several occasions, Intimated
that she had a story to tell, but hod
heretofore shrunk from the task from
a disinclination to give voire to the
by-gone memories. She had thought
much of the matter, and had resolved that she must speak soon, if over.
"Christine," she said, after she
had regarded her adopted daughter
for * time in silence, "1 am going to
tell you the story of mv life. It Is

heart) remained for so muny years

myself unable. But 1 ran speak it
to you, durling. You are so near to
msj—so dear and so precious—that I
should not die content if vou wero
left in  ignorance of mv  life story."
Christine would have interfered at
this point, fearing that her guarsii-
an's strength wus not oapial to the
task, but the latter, divining her
purpose,   smilingly   said:
"It will do me good to speak. I
shall feel better after the stx-try is
Christine drew nearer to the side
of her foster-mother, and took ono
of her thin hands ami pressed it to
her lips.
"Bless you, mv darling! May a
kind Providence shield you from sorrow always!"
As she spok# Rachel raised her left
hand tss the maiden's head nnd
smooth.'d back tho shimmering waves,
and finally  she said;
"Listen to me, darling. 1 ha\e

When I was seventeen years of age, I
became acquainted with Viator St.
Clair, a French refugee, of middle
age, and of immense wealth. He had
sought refuge in New Orleans with
no friend save a faithful servant. By
chance ha found a home beneath my
aunt's roof, and it fell to my lot to
afford him occasional entertainment.
He was a true-hoiirted, generous man,

and was dissolute and unprincipled.

and would not listen. When my husband knew thut his sister was in New

was not inclined to be friendly. Victor would not associate with her husband; and she, with a spirit which I

. Dr. King has secured the Liberal
nomination in Cranbrook. His rivnl,
xl. C. Drewry, wnlkeci out of the convention and took his friends with hiin,
ns a protest against machiae rule.
The Grits nre up to their old trickB
again. Not lining satisfied with their
platform, the loaders met in Vancouver last week and tacked on six more
planks, the material for the principal
of which they opmily purloined from
the Tories. They now favor opening
up tho country by an extensive system
.of roads and trails, something the
-Tories have been preaching for years.
The least Grits might do is to endeavor to be original.
Public advocacy of the government
ownership of telegraphs nnd other
utilities was mooted I y Sir John Mac-
doaald antl his Tory followers in the
.•first Dominion parliament, hence tho
/consistency of Conservatives in having
that strong and popular plank iu their
platform today. The Grits opposed
the idea in Sir John's time, and now
their highest grasp of the principle is
an abortion like the Grand Trunk
Pacific railway scheme, a proposition
condemned by friend and foo alike.
Paul Hauck has opened a bakery at
Tho coal strike nt Cumberland has
been declared off.
Sandon's tnx rate this year is 26$
mills on the dollar.
The Rackliff family left here on

Monday is the last day for receiving

W. T. Shatford returned from Vernon on Thursday evening.
Punk Perkins and Ollie Covington

Look at the label on your paper. It

Grit affection for organized Labor
may be judged from their treatment
'of the printing fraternity. In 1872
the compositors of the Toronto Globe
asked for an increase of wages, but
were thrown into jail by Hon. George
Brown for conspiracy. Moreover, it
was not until 1.382 that a Grit daily
paper first recognized the Typographical Union. Another forceful illustration was furnished not long sincti by
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who refused to
make the government printing bureau
ft. Ottawa a union office, and declared
' that it should remain an open office,
Moiern Liberalism is a veritable sham.
Episodes like the past troubles in
the Slrjcan and Rossland, when the
Alien Labor Act was permitted to be
flagrantly violated by the importation
of foreign miners, testify to the brotherly love of a Grit government for
organized Lalior. The calling out of
the militia at Steveston during the
fishermen's troubles was another vivid
example. And, as if to clinch tho
matter, just gazo on the* report of
Lauder's Lnbor commissi on la»t week,
wherein it is stated the Western Federation of Miners aud the United
Brotherhood of liailrssad Employees
should lx* declared illegal, because
they are international Ixxlics and be-
cans.' they have Socialistic tendencies.
Workingmen, what do you think of
that? Ya» cannot further be blind to
the liolluwness of Grit pretensions of
friendship for you. Note the ahoy*
facts and mark your lajllots accordingly.
The labor oommiaaioa, appointed to
inquire into  industrial  conditions in
this provincs*. has made its report, and
full w.*;ll has the  Grit appointees carried out the ideas of their Ottawa ro*
periors.   They acknowledge the right
of mon to organize and favor the union
label    Conciliation should beencour
agsxl, but sympathetic strikes, Ixiycott
and  the unfair list are condemned,
while counter moves of the employers
BKSpe unscathod.   Trade unionism is
to lie encouragod, by having its foun
tainliead in  the department of labor.
All international organizations are to
be eoud.'.mii'*d and prohibited, particularly   the   Western   Federation  of
Miners   and   the   U.B.lt.E.,  Ixvause
their movements  are directed from u
foreign country and  because they incline to .Socialism.   The report is very
much biased and itu findings tyranai-
cal and bigoted, as  well  as injurious
to a large section of the populate.   It
will turn the  Labor vote against the
Grits and strengthen  the Tory cause.
Workingnien. hs»w do you  relish this
latest Grit dextrine?   Swsvct thing.
Should any of "the local South African veterans have nay Boer Bibles in
