A healthier feeling is beginning to

in. The uncertain quantity in British
Columbia polities is about gone forever, and the impending elections will
result in stability to law and industry.

easier to approach, while inquiries for
investments are increasing. The marki't for zinc is firm and its sioope*widening, as notice the Kansas people
seeking larger and longer contracts,
and ulso the local smelters increasing

lead ores are being sought by American smelters, both by the trust and

Kate:—with all my heart. Good-
b.ie "
He held out his hand to her. She
could not but take it; she was
compelled at last to look away from
the gull, and towards him.
Helieved from one anxiety, he was
the more free to notice her. Suffering was evident in her fnee, and he
could never look on suffering unmoved. His recent experience had
made him very pitiful, very tender-
hearted; it had also quickened his
perceptions. He liked this girl—loved her, in a way: after Mary, she
came before any other of her sex in
his estimation. He knew that she
must be aware of his disappointment, but he had nut intended to
make direct illusion to it. Now—
prompted by a strung impulse to
give help if he could, sine* help was
so clearly needed,  he said—
"Are  you,   too,   in   trouble.   Kate?"
.She  tries!   hard   to   force   herself   to
say "nn." She could not.
'Ws."  was her answer
"I am sorry, slear." he said, so
kindly, so gently. "It's a hard
world for some of us, Kate, and
wo can do almost nothing to help
each other over the rough places. But
sympathy does give a little help, a
little encouragement, doesn't it?"
She bent her head.
"I have yours. I know Kate: and
you have mine."
Kate tore her hands from his, and
fastened them about her throat. She
felt as though rising sobs would
strang'e her. She wanted to tiioke
them hack. ls*st she should lose one
word  of what he was saying.
"Co on," she gasped, "you help
me. Say more, say something more
for me to remember."
"What can I say. dear'* Happiness
doesn't come tu everyone, and those
who don't get it have just to make
the best of their lives without it.
We can do that, can't we? We can
perhaps give all the better aid

Time   was  precious,   he      had      to

to rise higher, to make a bettor

Mary was at the Manse door,waiting  for  her  return.
'Vou have been away so long; I
have wanted you so much!" she
"Why?" askesi Kate, sinking into
the first scat she could  find
Kor nnswer, Mary burst out crying. Kate was on her feet again instantly, and had caught her cousin's
wrist in a tight grasp.
"What are you crying for Mary?"
she demanded almost fiercely.
"Because—because—John   has  bes.'u
"And   he says—oh,   Kate,   be  says
he is not coming back again."
"That moans that we iktsUl t see
him any more."
"1 .suppose it does," said Kate
sharply,   "llut  vou knew
I ., I Ms business to attend to: did
you think he could stay here always?"
"Nsj—only it's all so sad. I can't
bear to th'nk of his going away and
never coming near us again," sobbed Mary.
"Mary! stop crying you will
make yourself ill if you go on like
this. Think of something else! Get
the tea ready."
Mary was roused: even the gentle
Mary could be roused in time.
"You are most unfeeling. Kate,"
she exclaimed with indignation.
"You never cared for him as I do.
Of course his going away is not at
all so hard for you as it is for me.
You can't  understand!"
"No. I can't understand," retorted
Kate, at her wit's end "I should
have supposed it to be immaterial to
you who goes or who stays, so long
as you have Mr. Wishart in the
neighborhood. Certainly there are
some things quite outside my comprehension! As tea is within it, I
had better attend to that." She waa
almost beside herself If she abated
her harshness in the slightest degree
she would break down altogether—
a disaster not on any account to be
ri-ked. Therefore ahe left Mary: poor
Mary, who felt so sorely in need
of consolation
Mr. Ferris returning presently from
Glenessle, proved far more sympathetic. He let her cry out her grief
on his shoulder, he comforted her
by speaking confidently of John's
return to Scotland at some later
date; Mary had begun to smile
again, by the time tea was ready.
Nevertheless, it was a gloomy meal.
Kate, in one of her unapproachable
moods, sat stern and white at her
end of the table. At sight of her
face Mr. 1-erris. Who had been talkative before, became suddenly silent.
He found his eyeglass<*s very much
In need of polishing whenever he
looked towards her, but his efforts
did not in any way improve the
dimness of vision he sought to remedy. Mary encouraged herself by
surreptitious caressing of the lastr
received letter from Glasgow, until
the delicious sense of possesion betrayed her into an involuntary smile
just as Kate happened to glance in
her direction—whereupon, she started guiltily, withdrawing her hand
from her pocket in haste. They were
all relieved when Bella came to
take away the scarcely-touched dishes.
Afterwards, Kate retired to her
usual seat at a distance from the
others. In and out, back and forth,
darted her unresting needle. Not one
of the many stitches made was visible to her. Years afterwards she
found her work of that evening carefully laid away in an old box — a
woollen sock, darned ahapelessly, almost beyond possibility of recognition.
Mr. Ferris paced up and dowu he
room for some time, glancing uneasily, now and again, at the darner.
At length he subsided into his own
chair by the window; whither Mary
followed him. for a confidential chat.
"Well, dear," said the old man.
"what did you do with yourself
this morning?"
'rait of the time I wrote, Uncle ;
and part of the time I made plans."
"Mary made plans!" he said,
touching her golden hair tenderly.
"They must have been pretty plans ;
were they wise?"
"I don't know," sighed    Mary—"I
don't suppose so, since I made them.
But you see.  Uncle, I want so much
to improve myself now."
"Why now?"
"Oh, because of Gavin."
"Does he think you want improvement?"
"I daresay he does. Of course he
has not said so, yet; he has had so
little time to find out. I have told
him  not  to expect anything."
"Then he will have a great many
surprises. And what are the plans,
"There are several of them. I made
up my mind to learn book-keeping :
that would be useful, wouldn't 't ?
Then I thought I ought to learn a
little cooking from Bella. And there
is a book about servants' duties.and
their wages, and how you engage
them: I found it in the bookcase
here—I mean to read that carefully.
But those are all plans for helping
myself, and I wanted specially to bf
a. help to Gavin. As he is so clever, I
thought I had better begin with i
little very solid reading: Every day,
you know, for perhaps half an hour
at first—-I daresay I should soon get
to an hour."
"But you belong to a reading society, don't you?"
"I did, once; but you see, there
was a half-penny line every tune
you missed your half hour, and it
got to be too expssnsive for me That
was long ago, more than a year,
I should think. 1 am much more ie
earnest now."
"What 'very solid' books ure you
going to attask,  Mary?"
"Well, Uncle, 1 am not sure whether to try Browning's poetry, or
Mendelssohn's Letters, I think It
had better be aJeiisielsslion's letters,
because Gavin is so fond of music."
"And when are these great schemes
to be carried out?"
"Oh, I meant to begin this afternoon—but John came." Mary's
voice grew sad: she put her head
down on her Uncle's shoulder. There
was silence in the room for a long
At length the minister spoke Mary
never knew whether he meant his
words for her, or was talking to
himself as was sometimes Lis habit.
"Darkness is creeping over us," he
said; "thut means that light is
rising upon others. So it is always
in our lives. Gain involves loss, when
happiness comi'.s to me, sorrow fulls
"Only I think we often estimate
altogether wrongly, the value of
gain and loss, happiness und sorrow,
darkness and light. For I have
known lives that are passed in dark-
ness and struggle, grow far more
full of light than those passed in
peace and sunshine. 1 see
joyful hearts centre        them
selves on the objects of their
Joy and look no further: and I see
sorrowful hearts stretch themselves
out to aid the sorrowing everywhere
—a sword has pierced them through
therefore the thoughts out of many
hearts are revealed to them.
"Yel who am I, to say whether
the joyful or the sorrowing nre nobler1 God sends to each what is
right for each. Those who receive
joy, fulfill their destiny as truly as
those to whom sorrow is appointed.
we have to tread: leave it we must
not,  glorify it we may!"
He ceased speaking. Mary felt
awed, almost frightened. Kates
needle was still at last, her hands
were idle; her work had slipped un-
Here, before each of us, lies the path
heeded to the door, and lay there at
her feet.
As John Cayford traveled back to
town, the definite plan of action
Which had seemed so hopelessly inconceivable in the morning, began
slowly to shape itself before him.
Out of tlie confusion in his mind,
one determiuatiou arose, powerful,
irresistible, bringing order with it:
at all hazards, al any cosl, Mary's
happiness musl be secured! So eii-
Urelj cs.seutial did this appear, that
in view of it the idea of violating
his oath to Alau bs*c*uie less and
leas revolting, became familiar, became an accepted necessity.
■ Alan loved her," he arguei,
"lln-refore he would have been reao .
to make any sacrifice for her. Had
he known the production of these
papers must involve her in uiUer>,
be would have destroyed them without hesitation: if I can convince Uiy-
helf that their production will bfln-*
more pain that profit — I shall de-
stroy   them
Be knew that the thought of Mar.
ao swayed him as almost to deprive
blm of the capability to judge riglu-
es.as Judgment. lie tried to put
away all recollection of her; to view
ths* matter solely as it affected the
ini.-r.-st**. of Alan, Mr. Anderson,
Ilk-hard Twiss. Over this last name,
be pondered long. Kichard's relationship to the accused man surely
gave him a right lo tiie knowledge
of his brother's innocence. How
deeply he had seemed to feel the disgrace attached to him by Alan's supposed misdemeanor! John recalled
his own impulsive intention lo lighten the weight of grief that seemed to
crush Richard, by naming the real
defaulter; he could not be sutticicuth
thankful that he had resisted that
on the other hand, he remembered
Alan's letter to his brother. There
v. as an illusion in it which he did
not understand, and on which the
papers in Alan's box relating to the
sale of the Braehead Btreet property
would probably throw some light.
He waived the consideration of
Kichard's claims until he should have
examined  these.
As to Mr. Anderson: John figured
him as a kind-hearted employer, who
had been bitterly disappointed in the
character of one in whom he had interested himself. Was it worth
while to purchase his gratification
nt lhe cost of such disaster elsewhere' He had possibly almost for-
golten the matter.
And Alan? Certainly his main desire had been to have his name
cleared in Mar;- 's eyes. He had
said distinctly that he cared nothing
for the opinion of others, but only
for hers. He had died with that
eager appeal s>n his lips "Tell
Mary." She had been told: poor
Alan! she could scarcely remember
his name! What good could possibly
be done to hiin by the public revelation of his innocence and another's
guilt? None. And that other would
suffer social damnation And Mary
—John realized her nearness again,
fi-lt the pressuie of her hand upon
his arm, saw ihe love-light shining
in her eyes, heard her dear voice saying—"My love for Gavin, is—is me.
Il lives with my life, it is my life;
nothing can change it." Oh, no, no.
no! the pnps.*rs must not b** shewn:
at all hazards, at any cost, Mary's
happiness must be secured. He had
a disagreeable consciousness all the
while, that the.se same arguments
would have had no weight whatever
with bim, but for the crushing conviction that the hope of winning
Mary for i.'imse'if was at an end
There was still an "If" in the case
Wishart'a fate v.as nol yet decided

The racing cann 1 is very carefully bred

lu their anxiety to be off. A flag was
waved aud tliey set off at a terrible

signs were of an "extremely freethink-

Anaemia, or poor or watery blood,
is a trouble from which most growing girls, and many young boys suffer, lt comes at a critical period of
the .young person's life, and utiles.-,
profnpt steps ure taken to enrlcn the
blood and thus strengthen the system, decline, and most likely consumption Will follow. Dr, Williams'
I'ink Pills is the only medicine thai
acts directly upon the blood und the
nerves, promptly restoring the ailing
one to complete health und strength.
The following statement from irs,
1 en a M. Ryan, of Welland, whose
daughter was a victim oi anaemia,
gives the strongest prool of the
vulue of these pills. Mrs. Ilyan Rays:
" About three years ano tlie health
of my daughter, Birdie, became so
bud tlmt 1 wu.-, seriously alarmed
She wus pale und almost bloodless;
bad no appetite, lost flesh und suffered from severe headaches, 1 took
her to a doctor, and ulthough bis
treatment was followed for some
Lime, ii did nut benefit her. 1 then
ti'is'd some other remedies, but these
also failed, und she had vvastod away
to a mere shadow of her former self.
At this stage 1 wus advised to give
her Dr. Willinms' I'ink Pills, and she
began this treatment. Almost from
the outset these pills heipeil ber, an I
as she continued their use, the color
came back to her cheeks, her appetite Improved, the headaches ceased
,'o trouble her, and by tne time sho
had taken eight boxes she felt stronger and better than she hod ever
slone before in her life. I think l>r
Willinms' Pink Pills are unsurpassed
for all ailments of this kind, and
strongly recommend them to oilier
mot here."
