calmness, "as the present business

cannot bo ignorant of my purpose.
When 1 gave a reluctant consent to
your suit with the girl Christine, I
believed that she was the heir of Madame Ha'hol. In fact, 1 had been directly given so to understand. Dut
it now turns out that she is a penniless, namolcsss waif, without even a

"You do not. intrude a* a'l." replied Christine, in BWOOteSt accent's.
In her forlorn and lonesome estate

known hud been more aged still.
"I am weary, lady, nnd would

"Take iny arm, nntl come with me
You shall have both rest nnd refreshment."
The girl, without thought of danger, gave her arm to the old womnn

When they reached the cottage

"u"nd 1 havo bi ought her in Mint she
muy rest und refreeh herself. Will
you help mo. plou.se?'.'
Refreshment* were served, uml after a time the woman ttinud to our
hero no uml said:
"My child, 1 did not come here by
accident. 1 came hero on purpose. 1
came to learn something of Rachel
St. Clair. I knew her onco—long,
long ugo.   1 henrtl she wus doud."
"Yes," answered Christine, wiping
the'tears from hor eyes. "Did yqu
know her very well?"
•She was onco my friend."
"You knew the best und the dearest woman that over lived!"
"But," pursued tho visitor, if I
hear, aright, sho sadly neglected hor
duty to yourself."
•'No, no," cried the girl, impulsively. 'She did all sho could do.
and I am sure—J am sure—"
"That she meant to have done
"Yes, 1 affi s re of it."
"My dear child, I shall probably
hear many conflicting stories and so
would you mind telling me the whole
truth, just ns you understand it-
such, I mean, as you are at liberty
to tell?"
"If you feel an interest—"
"Havel not told you that I knew
Rachel St. Clair? Would to God 1
could have seen her ore sho died! Buti
it wns not to be. 1 nave boen sick
—very nonr death myself—or I might
have beon here ere this."
Christine had nothing to fear in tho
telling of her story to thiB woman,
and she lold it ns she know it—told
all from tho deuth of Rachel to the
present—told of the investigations
which had been mude concerning the
will, and of the result of the same.
And, in answer to questions, Bhe
told of Caspar Hugo's testimony
touching the last meeting between
Rachel and her attorney.
"Then you think," said the-visitor,
"that thero might have been villainy
in the scheme?"
"No, no," answered Christine, "1
dare not think that. 1 only think
that the last and most earnest wish
and purpose of my foster-mother was
not permitted to bo carried out; for
I know that she had planned to make
me her heir. But it is well as it is.
1 havo her love—1 have tho memory
of hor motherly kindness through all
my years of remembrance, and I will
not  repine."
The old woman arose from her
chair anil brought her staff down
smartly upon the floor
"I can sec villainy in this, if you
do not," she said. A brief jiause, antl
she added: "But I speak hastily. Tt
were well to be sure ere we condemn- As 1 told you before, I knew
Rachel St. Clair; and. if she were
living, I think, for your sake, sho
would trust me. If I send a lawyer
to you, will you confide in him?"
Christine hesitated, not trom distrust, but from ama'cment.
The woman marked the emotion,
and quietly snid:
"If I send to you a respectable
luwyer, you will at least receive him
respectfully, for the sake of the
true friend ut whose instance he
"Yes, yos— and I will confide in
hlm, too."
"You may confide In him, if he
can inspire you with confidence; not
"But," urged Christine, as the woman was upon the point of turning
away, "you will tell me who you
ure?    1 muy know—why 1 am to   be
thus Indebted?"
It is 1 who am indebted, my
child, I woultl serve you, because I
believe you are pure and good, and,
moreover, becnuse 1 am indebted to
Rachel St. Clair, You may cull me
Endora.    I shull seo you ugain."
And thus speaking, the woman
went away; and very shortly afterward, Lora came into the drawing-
'Missus, who wns dut woman?"
'Why, Lora?" demanded Christine,
surprised by the servant's excited
manner. "Whut did you observe re-
markable ubout her?"
"I don't know whut it was missu9;
hut sure as de world, I'se seen her
"Where?   When?"
"Lord 'a mercy! I don't know. 1

"Well, It's past my comprehendin';
but, suro as you is born, I'se seen

"I   think she is my friend."
"IV* keerful, be kcerful, Miss Christine. IN! ole snrpint can tako a

Christino wus not inclined to listen
to Lore's superstitious fancies, nnd
jet sho could not but feel thnt there
wns something significant in the re-
COgnltlOn, of which the servunt wus
so positive, Thut she had scon the
old woman before, I.ora wus assured,
though whore, or when, she could not
say. Sho could only declare, with
sol'inn earnestness, that she knew

It wus the self-sumo Individual whom
wo hnve known sas Aloxnntler Hugo;
but upon his luggage now appeared
the name of Alexander Oompton,
antl thnt name he wns undoubtedly
enl il led to wear. Various other cog*

t.a assume from time to time, hud
I C"ii none of his by lnhci i: alice We
kuaivv hlm, because we hnvo boon cognisant .if his socrot movements; but
those who have casually met hlm
upon the street, or in the dons an'l
nils whero thfl "tiger" lies in wnlt,
will not rocognlzo him in this, ids
proper gnl e lie hus been lurking
in   Ki.-.i.ni  under a Vail,  and    for    a
purpose, as we know; and having, aa
ho is sure, struck the ascending
plane, he appears upon the scene to
accept the benefits of tho good fortune. And he has brought with him
Mr. Zenas Leflington, a lawyer of
Vow Orleans, who, for a consideration, had lent himself, body and
soul, to the work. He has met ths
lawyer in New York.
This fs Mr. Lefflngton who now
bears Alexander Compton company.
Ho is a man of sixty, or thereabouts,
sharp-faced, keen-eyed and well-looking. If there has beon any deep villainy, he has evidently had nothing
to do with lt. He does not look
like a man who would knowingly or
willingly take a hand In a game of
..pen rascality. But he is a lawyer;
und he is nervous and persistent;
and with a basis of right, upon the
side of his client, be would not be
likely to waste respect or considera-
i ion upon the feelings of opponents.
Wo may say horo, without betraying
any confidence, that Zenas Leflington
did not know that any villainy-—any
direct infraction of the statutes—had
been committed.    He know only this:
That the Comptons had been engaged in looking after their interests
in noslon, while he had been gathering evidence in and about New Orleans. He knew that Caspar had,
in a manner not strictly legitimate,
gainod entrance into the service of
Itnchel St. Clair's attorney, but that
was, in his estimation, a piece of
strategy pardonable either in law or
war. How much hs might have suspected, had he been inclined to suspect, wo cannot say; but it Was not
his business to suspect his clients so
long na they gave him a fair pro-
text, and what waa, perhaps, full as
important in his eyes, a plump retainer, with promise of golden increase in case of successful issue.
Caspar Hugo (wa must still know
him by the name he has thus far
wsirn to us) had received a telegram
announcing the proposed arrival of
his father and ths lawyer, and, by
previous appointment, hs met them
in a private apartment near the railroad station. The first business, after having assured themselves that
thoy wero secure from observation,
was the examination by Caspar of
papers and verbal evidence, brought
by Leflington.
"It is enough! The chain is complete—not a link missing!" cried tho
young man, rubbing his hands exultantly.
"Tho chain upon our side is complete," admitted the lawyer; "but
how is tho business here?"
Caspar explained the whole matter
as it then stood.
Had Ixfllngton chosen to suspect
t'.ie concealment of a will, he might
have gone on and suspected- much
more; but, as we have already remarked, he did not deem it any part
nf his business to suspect his clients.
Ho had not beon retained for that
purpose. He listened very patiently
to the end, and then said:
"I think you havs a clear case. No
Paw appears upon the surface; and
if nothing now transpires to interfere, tho court cannot do otherwise
than give you the property. And
now," pursued the man of law, addressing Caspar, "let us understand
ono another perfectly. You are to
retain your assumed name through
the business?"
"I must," replied the clerk. "There
is no telling whnt wild things might
bo suspected wore I to discover myself. When I found how closo and
reticent old Halford was, and how
jealously he guarded the secrets of
his clients, I was forced to resort to
stratagem; and as lt is fair to judge
an act by Hs motive, 1 foer that since
I only sought my inherent rights, my
method of procedure, forced upon me
by necessity, cannol be considered
culpable. Not a soul ln New England, outside of this present trio,
knows mo for else than I have appeared. My father will enter upon
the stage as an utter stranger. I
propose that, when we leave this
apartment, we forget that 1 have
ever known or seen either of you.
You have come hither In answer to
legal summons, und you will directly seek my counsel and guidance."
A moment's pause, and he added,
with a smile:
"I shall trust my fnther to claim
and receive the property. He will
not play me false."
"And could not if he would," said
tlio parent,  with an answering smile.
It is not my purpose to enter into
the details of the legal proceedings
which followed. We need only state
what came to pass of Important result. Alexander Compton, hailing
from New Orlenns, and accompanied
by his lawyer, laid claim to the
estate of the late Rachel St. Clair,
and presented to the probnte court
his credentials. Mr. Leflington was
his legal counsel, and was properly
Alexander Compton was a man of
the world, and knew how to make
himself agreeable; and to the predate officers he showed his very best
face. He appeared a meek and pious
man, though hs did not overdo ths
thing by verging upon Instrumentality. For himself he cared not so
much an for his children, and for his
prospective grandchildren. Zenas
Leflington was already known te the
court by reputation; and it was fortunate for the Comptons that thssy
hasi becurcd the services of a lawyer
who hud, at least, a fair record et
success in his profession to recommend him.

he says, "I wub taken sick aad laid

our country more extensively thnn uny
other exotic forest tree.
These trees ure originally from Aus
trails. Tliey are known there under
the name of antlfever trees, as by their
rapid growth and large amount of foliage they absorb the poisonous gases
of the swamps, making the nir pure
nnd the climate healthy. In California, Kansas and Indiana tracts of land
several thousand acres in area bave
been planted with seedlings of the eucalyptus rostrate for fuel, railroad ties
and for windbreaks, On account of
their rapid growth they make desirable
•hade trees for the dwelling and pasture lots. Iu many parts of the southwest the eucnlypts are utilized to advantage to furnish shade in pastures.
If set along the fences and along tlie
irrigating ditches they can be made to
ptotect the cattle In the pasture without at any time Interfering with farm
work. Seedlings muy be had from the i
nurseryman In 100 lots at 6 cents each, !
There are some thirty different varie- j
ties, and all of them nre said to grow j
equally well in the middle nnd south

A Queer  Paperweight.
One of the most remarkable objects
ln tbe American historical collection
which occupies the front hall of the
National museum ls the paperweight
of Professor Henry, for many years
secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. It Is a triangular prism of clear,
transparent glass about six inches in
b. ight. Into the edge or sharp back of
the triangle the skillful workman who
turned out this singular paperweight
carved a series of grooves and hollows
which appear absolutely meaningless
when viewed from the side, but when
looked nt through the broad surface of
the front of the prism resolve themselves into a beautiful Etruscan vase.
In reality there exists only one side
of this remarkable vase, the other two
being a reflection on tbe two angles of
the prism of the original. Viewed
through the flat surface of the opposite
angle the vase has four handles, but
if thc back ls examined it will be found
to have only two.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25th, 1.103.
Hunter is it pioneer of the camp,
knows its needs and Is acquainted with
the resources of every section of it. He
is a safe man in every respect, and
that is what is wanted at Victoria
Work and vote for Hunter.
As an elector and a true citizen.your
duty is to use your franchise. If you
want to seo public affairs boscomo settled and the country advance.you will
vote for the candidate whose policy is
supported by a rccogni-sed government party. Hunter is that man, so
vote for him.
In Hunter the ranclieiN.prospectors,
miters, businessmen, and all classes
of the communitv have a candidate
who is at oice a friend and sympathizer, and one who stands ready, when
elected, to do his duty by the riding,
irrespective of class. Consider that
fact well and give him your vote.
Don't abuse your franchise on election day by refraining from voting.
The electiou affords you the first opportunity in this province of casting a
ballot for responsibls* government.
Give your vote to Hunter and so kill
off all efforts to continue the nondescript and irresponsible programme of
the past.  ____________
A. S. Goodeve, the Conservative
nominee in Rossland, has been sworn
in as provincial secretary and minister
of education. The appoiutmest is
satisfactory to the people, as it briu;
to the cabinet much strength and
talent. Kootenay now possesses two
of the ministers, an indication of the
importance and merit of the leading
mining section of tho province.
Prospectors, nnd you men who own
claims, do you wish to get some return for the years of toil you have
spent in the hills and to realize upon
your investment? You know capital
wil' only come whero there are permanent laws, administered by a re*
sponsible government. You know that
William Hunter, being an owner of
claims himself and a man who knows
the hardship of pioneer life, stands for
a solid government and for the betterment of the country then vote for
him. Help yourself by helping Hunter and so signify, in his election, that
Slocan wishos to encourage, not discourage, capital from coming iuto the
Nominations were duly held through
the province on Saturday last, and the
tangible results may lie said to greatly
favor the Conservative cause. True,
the Liberals had Hon. Mr. Welle returned by acclamation in Columbia,
but the Conservatives offset that by
the election of Mr. McDonald in Lillooet. In every other riding the Conservatives huvo nominated u full ss>t of
candidates, but not so the Liberals.for
in Slocau, Nanaimo and Atlin they
failed to select, contenting themselves
iu the two latter constituencies by favoring the Labor candidates. The
Tories have tho weather guage of their
opponents and they will beat tliem
out on electiou day. Help the cause
along, boys, by plumping for William
Party politics are no longer an issue
iu this riding, all feeling between Liberals and Conservatives having l>eeii
merged into one united object and
purpose to advance the interests of the
camp.   Those having tin.  welfare of
the country at heart, be they Tory or
Grit, are determined to end the unsatisfactory condition of things that  has
been existing so long, and are putting
forth   every  effort to  restore public
confidence.   All are actuated with tho
laudable purpose of securing a respon j
siblo aud lasting government, and to
hate sound  legislation calculated to,
benefit all and not the few, and not to
protect one clR|8 as against another. |
Such being the case then, the followers of the two old parties in the riding
are pooling their Interests on the one
man whose cimdidaturo stands for
progression -William Hunter. His
election means as much to ono party
as the other, but eminently more to
the country. His doctrine is no narrow-minded sectionalism, but rather
has it the broader basis of personal
liberty, national progression and public enterprise. Let overy man, irrespective of party politics, study the
existing situation woll and he will
surely arrive at the conclusion that in
William Hunter lies tho safety and
advancement of the camp. Vote for
