Ore shipments havi" been eminently
satisfactory this week, iu that four
properties were on the list, one of
which, tin* Republic, has not sent out
anything before in years. Their shipment was 22 tons and represents the
first return the Detroit capitalists have
won from their heavy expenditures to
date. They have much more ore to
come down, TheOttawa sent out an*
other car, making three this month.
Thsre is pari of a fourth car-down and
it will be ready to go out next week.
But 20 tons was sent out from ih" Arlington and 'iii tons from the Enterprise, -10 of whieh was zinc ore and
went to Nelson. The Arlington and
Enterprise will run light from now on
and the Ottawa will likely be the
leading shipper.   To date the sh

For 1900 the exerts from this division amounted to 2S-17 tons, made up
from ten properties. Last year tho

"lie did not. say much, at first. He
was surprised, of course; then ho
snid how glad ho was that 1 nm so
happy, lie spoke very, very kindly —
nil very kindly indeed; us ho always
dues, you know."
Knte realized then, with painful
Vividness, whnt. that interview on the
rooks must have meant, to the man
concerned. A great, flood of pity rose
up In lii'i' heart, sweeping away beforo
it (he passionate jealousy, envy, nnd
hatred cherished thero. The sel-
llshnoss that had bound her affection
until now, fill from her: nt last,
thnt    greatest     love      wns   revealed
which can lay down its life unheal-
talingly.    She COUld have knelt there
beforo Mary, and Implored her to go
nnsi nil the place in this mini's heart
that  she  eoveieil   for  herself Vet
she must say nothing, her lips were
Ni*ali'il the heart to Will was present
with her, but not the power to do.
Measuring his suffering by her own
llliserj , she put up her hands to her
hi'iid and burst into tears. Mary
wus lerrilied. With her, tears wero
a daily occurrence, but to see Kate
cry, suggested something dreadful,
mull us a death.
Kate recovered herself instantly.
"I beg your pardon, Mary, dear;
something must have unnerved ine.
Please don't look so unhappy."
"Oh, Kate, I have been hatefully
selfish: I ought not to have disturbed you when I knew that your
head ached.    I had better go."
"Stay, Mary, I wnnt to hear more.
Who is this Mr. Wishart? I don't
know that I remember him."
It was a subject on which Mary
could have spoken for hours.
"You must remember him, Kate.
You saw him three months ago,
when wo lunched at Uncle Forester's. Afterwards I asked you if you
did not think he had kind eyes, and
you said you did."
"Did I? I can't recall his face.
Did you care for him then, dear?"
"When I think of it," said Mary
meditatively, "I am quite sure that
I must have. Indeed I can't tell
now, when I did cure for him."
"You never said anything to me
about it."
"Why, Kate! how/could I? I did
not know until yesterday, that he
loved mo. Hut you don't know how
wicked I have been. Ever so many
nights lately, I have not said my
prayers properly—because I was
thinking of him ull the time; and I
have often read a chapter in my
Ilible three timi's over, and not
known then what it was about!"
The gathering darkness hide the
emile that stole involuntarily to
Kate's lips.
"It is a very wonderfnl thing,"
continued Mury, "that 1 should be
allowed to huve such happiness: it
Just shews how forgiving God isl
Oavin is so generous and good, Kate.
He has been busy lately, helping the
Cooper's Mill Belief Fund. He is always doing good things. The Forester girls told tne, that their father

Purine; the somewhat incoherent
account of Gavin's excellencies,
Kate's mind had wandered from tho
favored suitor to his rival. Only
her cousin's lust  words reached her.
"Unworthy    of     him?    nonsense
Mary!" she said sharply. "You ure
worthy of some one much better. I
am constantly telling you that I
will not have you talk nbout yourself In thai fashion. Why do you
perpetually under-rate your own
value? I suppose you went down on
your knees to tin's young mnn, and
thanked him for Ins astonishing condescension in asking    you    to marry

too. Every tune lis* kisses your

abrupt ly, drew Mary tow-ard her,
und pressed kiss after kiss on her
Hushed cheeks. "There, my dear,
don't be vexed with me. You are a
ds'iir, sweet, humble-minded girl, and
if I were more like you I should bo
a better woman than I am. Go to
bed now, and dream of hlm, aud be
happy. No, wait while I ask you
ono thing more. Are you sure, are
you quite sure, Mary, that you truly
love hlm? Thnt—that 11 would bo
utterly impossible for you to care for
nny one else?"
"Oh, Kate," cried Mary in genuine
distress, "I don't know what 1 have
done that you should all doubt so
whether 1 love Oavin, indeed I
know I am very childish about a
gnat many things, and 1 daresay
you none of you think I know my
own mind: but I do, I do. I have
no words that are strong enough to
nuiku you understand how- dear he is
lo me. As to my caring for any
ono else, it is nn insult to talk of
such a thing!"
"You ure right, dear," said Kate
very gs*ntly. "Believe me, I only said

to speak  to you  in  lhat way;    yeu
ss*e 1 kt's'ii forgetting how olsl you
ure, und think of J'OU as a little child
that I huve to look nfter. Please forgive nie, Mury, und forget what I
huvo said."
To bo asked by Kato for forgiveness, was much worse thun to be
scolded by her. Mary tried to convey unspeakable things in a caress,
and went to her own room in a very
subdued state of mind.
"Dear, dear!" she sighed, "I wiah
I could think of something that Kate
would like to have me do for her."
-she lit her candle, opened her writing case, and drew- therefrom a large
envelope. The sight of the address
written upon it, appeared to afford
her infinite satisfaction: she studied
it closely for three minutes. Then
sho took from it the letter and the
photograph it contained, A thought
occurred to her. Smiling with delight, she slipped tho letter into her
pocket, and went over to Kate's
"Would you like to see what he
looks like, Kate?" sho called softly.
"Very much, Mary, come and shew
Mary hurried to her cousin with
her treasures, and found Kato still
by the open window.
"Hero is his photograph, Kate; and
this is his writing. I-et mo hold the
candle higher, so that you can seo
"llo has a nice face, Mary; he ls
quito good-looking."
"Very goosl-looking," amended
Mary. "I don't wnnt the envelope,"
sho added generously.
"Thank you,    dear,"    aaid    Kate,
with perfect gravity.
Mary retired to her room again.
"Women — are —• fools!"     commented Kate, as the door closed.
Her hand rested on the window
sill, nnd a sudden breeze caught the
paper from her lingers, whirling tt
away Into tho darkness. She reflected
that Bhe would probably have other
opportunities to admire Gavin's
John Cayford watched Mary's retreating figure until it disappeared
from view, then he returned to the
rocks where he and she had stood
together. Arrun was now half
shrouded in mist, and more vividly
than before it recalled to him his
Tenerife experiences. In Imagination
he saw again the light from the
Molo flicker over tho water as Marco
rowed the boat to shore, he felt
anew the pressure of Alan's Angers,
ho heard distinctly those faintly-
spoken last words—"tell Mary."
Mary! that was the name that was
so dear to himself!
Ho shivered; the evening air was
growing chill. It had been chilly
when he stood on the Mole, looking
at (irand Canary, with Alan's silent
form beside him. How long ago was
that? Years ago, surely. What had
filled his life since then — since then,
sand for years before?    Mary!
"Now it is at an end;
it is all over and done
with," he said; uttering the words
aloud, as though the sound of them
must force upon him the conviction
that silent thought failed to give.
But the hopes of years are not to be
effaced by a sentence, though It be
repeated a hundred times, and in
tones of thunder. This night, he
had taken her hands and covered
them with kisses; this night, he had
lifted her in his arms and held her
close to his heart; this night, hia
dream was over? he was forever
parted from her?    Impossible!
A wave broke at his feot, dashing
the salt spray up into his face: he
became aware that the tide had
arisen. Had hours passed, or minutes? Dnrkncss made the figures on
his watch indist inguishnble: damp
mist had closed uround him, drenching his coat. Through the mist he
groped his way over the rocks and
down the road to the Manse; conscious only of the monotonous moan
of the waves. and of wondering
Vaguely whether that was thc sound
tho sea had in it when it made Mary
cry. Within the Munsc gate a piece
of white paper stared nt him from
the dark grounds: he picked it up
mechanically and thrust it in his
pocket—Mr. Ferris disliked to see
litter of any kind on his premises.
The house door stood ajar, he pushed it open. When ho hail shut out
the moaning of the sea, death-like
Stillness seemed to surround him.

Sage, where u brilliunt lire blazed,
before which regiments of socks and
stockings wero hanging, llo pulled
oil hi9 coat und seated himself in the
genial glow, appreciating the sense
hi warmth and comfort that stole
ovei him, It wus his turn now to
sxperlencs that numbness of heart
which Kate found preferable to the
puin of feeling
Por. Mr. Ferris, the evening had
been one or unusual agitation, tt
series of trilling circumstances having combined to upset his equanimity altogether. He w-as now nearly
seventy years of age: it was no
longer possible for him to accomplish without great fatigue the
work that had formerly
seemed so easy, und on the
early days of each week he invariably suffered a sense of lassitude and
depression, commensurate with the
amount of nervous fsirce expended
in his preparation for nnd execution
of the Sabbath services. Kute. quick
to notice this sign of decrensing vitality had hitherto been us quick to
minister to It. She saw that her
uncle fretted over his loss of power,
anil sho made it her business to divert his thoughts whenever he was
liable to feci his weakness most
keenly. Monduy and Tuesday, therefore, found her prolific In devises for
his distraction: she arranged to be
much with him: she consulted him
ou u variety of small diiiicultics,
guiding hlm so deftly to the right
solutions of thorn that ho was often
aina7.od at his own perspicacity:
when she was obliged to leave him,
an open novel would be found near
his chair, and Mr. Ferris, who was
wont to inveigh against novol-read-
ers, would take up the book—Just
to see what Kate wasted her time
over—and become engrossed in it
immediately.     By    Wednesday,     re/*.*

nnd recreation having done thoir
work, his energy was usually rt*-
Hut this week Kale had shunic-
fully neglected her duties. She luul
absented herself fnim the Munse
throughout Monday, she had not
volunteered to accompany her uncle
to Main's of Overton, she had scarcely spoken to him during Tuesday afternoon, and hail left him early in
the evening in solitude. Her neglect
was most reprehensible, because it
was his intense desire to be of service to her, that, had 11 roused Mr.
Ferris to make tltoso extra exertions on the proceeding Sabbath for
which he was now paying an extra
penalty of weariness.
He sat listlessly in his study, looking first ut the Chinese Mission books
still unread, and then at an unopen-
ed letter that lay before him. Kate
should have been at hand to make
excerpts from these books, Kate
should have been at hand to discuss tho contents of this letter—
and Kate was absent. He felt very
feeble, very unfit for any exertion,
very old, very near death. Not long
since, Mury had llown into the room
in bewildering haste, had clasped
her arms about his neck, and kissed
him many times, giving him
to understand, in incoherent
phrases, that sho was very, very
happy I This wus as it should be. He
triosl to rouse himself from his leth-
nrgv. to banish all thoughts of old
age nnd death, and to evince a sympathetic interest in >outh and lovo.
But sho mentioned a strange name,
anil h..' became once more bewildered.
With great patience Mary repeated
her facts, producing finally a letter
given to her by her uncle Fssrester
for Mr. Ferris, which would make
the whole mutter clear; then she betook herself to Kate, that the great
news might be spread further.
For a long time, Mr. Ferris gazed
helplessly at ths* letter and wished
that Kato would come: at length,
ns she did not come, he opened it.
Tho tightly closed envelope resisted
his nerveless fingers, he tore it angrily apart, flinging it to the ground,
and then was vexed that he
had been so unreasonable petulant. Mr. Forester's cramped handwriting was not easily read, eyeglasses had to bo found, and the
words und the sense laboriously interpreted.
"Mary," wrote Mr. Forester, "will
tell you her good news; I feel it due
to you, to supplement the information she can give. Mr. Gavin Wishart, to whom she has engaged herself, is a most s>stiuiable young mnn.

any enquiries you please to make
regarding Mr Wishart. lie desires
to  marry  Mary  soon,  and hinted    at
most liberal settlements; but these
are points which you and he will no
doubt discuss  when you  moot."
As thc meaning of this dawned
upon him, Mr. Ferris' color rose, he
dropped his eyeglasaea and the letter,
and began ta pace up unsl down the
room forgetful of fatigue, 'lliis was
Indeed extraordinary news! lie became as anxious lo speak of it to

In his chair again, bewildered, dazed

fortune, and ol her hopeless suitor's
ill fortune, distracts'd him alternately. He went after a while to the
Ma'iso door to look out; there was
no one within sight and thick mist

old nan.    he will lie wet   through."
