The family of Mr. John Armstrong, Reeve of Surrey, have been
having a sick time lately wilh

daughter, Annie, about nine years
of age, was dangerously ill, and
medical aid had to be culled.
Happily nil are now  on tho mend.
Loi'Ksi.f.y Lucas, an erratic individual well known through Delta
Riding, died in the Provincial Jail
at Westminster on Friday last,
where he was a prisoner awaiting
trial at the approaching assizes.
An inquest was held on the body
on Monday, when it was shown
that death resulted from natural
causos.
Mn, W, S. Whiteside, who has
been operating a ranch on the
Serpentine for several years past,
decided that overflowed lands and
no roads were too much to struggle
against, and has leased an improved farm in Delta Municipality.
Last week he removed his family
to the new premises, much to the
regret of ninny old friends und
neighbors in Surrey.
Mn. (I, W. llollingsbend, a rosi-
dent of Cliilliwaok. and who is
well known through the district,
met wilh a scvoro accident near
hero on Monday morning. He had
boon over to tbo Victoria Exhibition, where be won first prize with
a fine brood mare he bus, and nlso
first prize fur a 4 year old slnllion
bred from the mare that made a
mile in 8 minutes, lie intends to
enter both animals at Westminster
(bis week, and was staying over
for somo days at Iho Starr Hotel
hero. On Monday morning bo
stnrled for Westminster riding the
mare, which is a gentle beast, with
a bailer to guide her with. An
hour or two later bo was found nl
the crossing of the Vale and Clover
Valley mails by Mr. Loin ml Hornby. ' Mr. llollingsboud was insensible, and seemed to bo badly
burl. Fortunately Mr. Wm.
Kninipion, foreman of thi railway
section, bad bis car in the vicinity,
and promptly wont to Ibe assistance
of tho wounded man, who was
brought back to the Starr Hotel,
where be shortley afterwards recovered consciousness and is ut
this writling pretty fairly recovered. Ilollingsboad bus no recollection of Ibe accident, but it is supposed that tho saddle slipped at
the turn of the road und tumbled
him off, Mr. John Starr went in
quest of tbo mare and found her
near Mr. Parks' place, with Iho
saddle under her belly and one
fool through the stirrup, which
of tho patent kind that opens in
case of a person being thrown off.
Mr. Hollingsbead mado a fresli
start for Westminster yesterday.
Mn, Oswald Johnston, who
travels for a Victoria wholsale
up
customers in tliis vicinity last week,
and! as usual, met with good sue
cess. Being an old friend of the
writer he of course dulled, and ufter
he was gone, one of the little Misses
being asked if she remembered Mr.
Johnston said, ''0, yes. Where does
he live now?" The reply was,
in Victoria. Don't you think he
loqks well ? " To which Aliss responded, promptly, "0, lie looks
capital."
Tiie Brunette Saw Mill Co.'smill
at Sapperton, which was burned
down some time ago, is to be re-
erected on the old site. The plans
for the new mill are now in the
hands of the millwright getting the
finishing touches. The old debris
remaining will be all cleared away
in about two weeks time, when the
new structure will be commenced.
A large force of men is to be employed to rush it to completion at
as early a date as possible.

lOndsntB,
I regard it my duty to take ox
ception to certain communications
from Tinehead published in your
valuable paper, the subject matter
of whioh bus been chiefly of personal affairs which are not matters of
public interest. The one which
appeared in your hist issuo was
the most inexcusable and uncalled for. Suoh productions can be
productive of no good, but only of
evil, and that continually—stirring
up ill-feeling] and keeping the
community in a ferment,' it is
not my purpose to reply to any of
these loiters, but to enter my pro-
est against a publio newspaper
being made a medium through
which parties may carry on a personal quarrel. Is it not high time
to call a halt?
Respectfully vours,
Pax
Cloverdale, Oct. 7th, 1805.
[We rather agree with our correspondent above, that the contra
versy referred to has exhausted it
Oni table is indebted to Mr. R.
S. lnglis, of Tinehead, for some of
the finest specimens of Wealthy
apples we huve seen this year, not
excepting the prize winners at the
late exhibition. The Tinehead
district is particularly adapted for
the growing of superior fruit, and
the young orchards now coming
into bearing will no doubt be heard
from at future exhibitions, We
don't know whether Mr. lnglis
grows apples in quantity, but wo
can certainly vouch for the
quality.
Tiik muderous assault on Mr.
W. J. Moggridge, at Bellomoadc
Farm, Hall's I'rairie, about two
years ago, is still fresli in tho
minds of most people hero. A
curious thing in connection with
this crime transpired tbo othor dny.
The murder wns attempted for
purpose of robbery, nnd afler the
young man was shot down, the
perpetrators quickly went through
his pockets, and were believed to
have secured l>18 besides watch
and chain. Mr. Moggridge has
never recovered the use of his arm,
which hangs by his side, and he
cannot put that hand in his pocket.
A few days ago, having on the
knickerbockers in use ut the time
of tlie shooting, he noticed the impress of something in the unused
pocket. Examination showed
that it was caused by a small wad
of paper money down In tlio corner of the pocket. The notes
amounted to .$11, so that the
would-be murderers could not have
secured more than $2. The
criminals no doubt overlooked the
small roll of bills in their hasty
search of the unconscious victim.
Mr. John Bond has about as fine
a lot of potatoes as we have seen
this year. They wero grown on
the farm of Mr. Alex Anderson,
near the old Brunette logging
camp. They are of tho Umpire
State variety, and while not tremendously large, nre of clean, even
growth and excellent appearance,
tsix selected specimens weighed a
little ovor nine pounds,
Capt. A. Hiimiltox, formerly

in land and become a settler himself. He has returned to Victoria,
where he will remain for the pre
sent.

Sin,—To one who takes an interest
in the agricultural show of our district, tho article in your last
issue, which by the way, we might
fairly call a report from tlie secretary, wus highly gratifying, lt
became especially so after rending
the report of our show in the Columbian, where the writer evidently
tries to widen any difference of
opinion that may have existed as
to the removal of the show, by pre-j
sinning that there was a greivance
and that that grievance wus un-1
doutedly getting worse. Hut like
the masterly hand of genius (in i
this case of facts) the secretary of]
the Society with a few strokes nf;
his pen, throws a light on the
whole matter thnt proves Ihe
the supposed grievance nil. There
are always croakers und grumblers,
nnd some of these individuals are
always u( work finding fault with,

croakers are seldom good for anything but croaking.

Her Duties, Her Authority and Hep Power. For I>ll or Good.
No person linn greater power for evil
or for good thnu has tho uurso in the
sickroom. Hor actual authority is seo-
ond to that of tho physician, bnt her opportunities for exercising it are almost
unlimited. If a physician in a conntry
town wishes to soenre a trained nurse,
ho Bhonld telegraph or write to the
nurses' directory, to some hospital or
physician whom he knows, in the nearest utljuceut city, stating for what sort
of a cuae lio will rcqniro a nurse, what
he will pay and when he will require
her Such a message should secure for
him almost immediately whatever Berv-
ico lie requirea
The traits of character which make
tho ideal unrse are patience, obedience,
tact aud good sense aud temper. Tbe
nurse's costume should consist of a cam-
brio or seersucker gown, with white
cap, cuffs and apron. Woolen gowns
shotild never be permitted iu a sickroom.
Her authority is absoluto after the physician's. She must obey his instructions
to the letter, even if they are against
her judgment Sho haa no discretion lo
the mutter.
Bnt the patient and the patient's fam-
. ily must obey her. Sho must never be
allowed to disobey the physician's orders, and tho first symptom of any such
behavior should be reported immediately to tlio physician. All his instruction,
with reference to treatment, diet and
care should be followed faithfully. The
fact thut her patient is a man should
make no difference in her behavior in

John Port held a fiubordinntn post on
the Eastern Bongal fttnto railway, and
tho post curried with it, besides a certain number of rupees per mouth, a littlo pink houso that sat very flat upon
tho ground nonr the railway lino. It
was also nenr n tank nnd had dn conso-
quenco a green, dank garden, whoro
marigolds and poppies sprawled together
and big bushes, starred with the. scarlet
shoe flower, grew in inharmonious fellowship with the magenta masses'of the
bougaiuvillea, A decaying treo trunk
was glorified by the tangled wreaths and
orange trumpets of tho, Bignonia vcr-
nesta, and there wero mnny foliago
plants, dumps of brightly colored leaves
blasting loug Latin names, but John
Port called them, one and all, "bnrning
bushes."
" 'Tisn'twhat you'd call 'omelike,"
said John Port to his pipe as ho paced
among those flowering splendors, "bat
Ellen'll mako a difference, trust 'er."
And Ellen was on her wny out, and
every throb of tho steamer's screw
brought her nearer to the pink house
and tho green garden and the expectant
man, to whom her coming was to mnke
such a difference. It was fonr years
since Ellen Geo had promised to marry
John Port, four years sinoe ho had gone
to seek his fortune in India Ho was a
steady, hardworking man, and tho fortune had not been long of coming, the
monthly salary, with good prospects,
and the pink house and.tho green garden.
In the pride of his heart John Port.sent
home money, a cruel sacrifice at a.time
when 10 rupees barely equaled 20'sbil-
lings, for Ellen's passago ont.
"The ideal" said Ellen when she
received tbo money, and she promptly
put it into the savings bank against a
rainy day. Ellon had made ber arrangements for the voyage, Sbo came out in
attendance on a delicate lady and two
small children, and a second class fare
was gladly paid in ezchango for hor
services.
"I only wish you could stay with
me," said tho lady, and sho gavo hor
£5 at parting.
The marriage took placo in Calcutta.
John Port was nervous and excited, and
tho best coat of four years ago was al
ready a little tight far him. Ellen was
very quiet and composed and wore a
gray woolen gown.
They wont straight from the church
to the train, and as Ellen traveled with
out a ticket she felt that sho was indeed
entering into her kingdom. Six hours
of slow progress brought thom to the
little pink house, which Port hod furnished as a man in his ignorance fur
nislics. Ellen was impressed by tho four
rooms and tho veranda, but her quick
eyes took Instant note of tho scaliness
of the color washed walls, tho inferior
woodwork and tho clumsy doors that
would not shot But the servants astonished her beyond all things.
"Whatever 'ave got all these people
for?" sho asked, as a row of four stood
salaaming to her.
"Most men's wives 'as more, "said
Port.
"The more shame to them.    If
couldn't manago to do the work of my
own 'ouso, after all the time I've been
a 'general,' it would bo a pity."
"Sumo of 'em you must 'avo, and
you won't fool much like working when
tho 'ot weather comes, you'll see," said
Port, Bcoretly filled with tender admiration.
"Wo 'ad lt 'ot onough in the Red
■eas, I'm sure," said Ellen, "and as
long as I was looking after Mrs. Nugent
or doing anything for the children 1
didn't mind it, but whon I sat down
with my 'ends in front of mo it was
awfnl. Keep bnsy, and you'll be all
right, that's what I say."
Sho had already changed her wed'
ding dress for a serviceable blue cotton
gown, and sbe was on her knees as eh.
spoke dusting tho long neglected legs ol
tbe big square table. Her sleeves wok
turned up, and she woro a large apron.
John watched her In approving silence.
Sho was certainly making a difference
already. She went into the veranda to
■bako her duster, and Mrs. Gaspare!, the
wife of a ticket collector, w itched hor
from across tho road.
"(id], thoo bride isvercogrand," she
said to her husband that evening. "She
has brought ont ut English maid with
hor.   Onloo fancy, and makos her work
so hard nlroudonl"
It never eutcrod Into tho mind of
Mrs. Gaspare* thnt any woman could
possibly uso a duster on her wedding
day.
John nnd Ellen walked into thoir
garden when tho sun was low, nnd Ellen spied its flowory tangles with a
practical oyo. "It's n waslo of land,"
sim said. "Couldn't we manago some
greens instead of all that 'ighbisous?"
And John marveled nt her erudition,
I'.lio hull once nlleiideiliiseries of botanical lectures at Mow, organised by hor
Sunday sohool toucher.
"Things will look more 'oiuoliko
prcsonily," suiil Ellen us sho fastened
strings outside thu veranda for scarlet,
runners to he truiiicil upon.
Shu was bonding over tho strings ns
.lie spoke, ami John stooped and kissed
her smooth hair a lililo awkwardly. "1
know you'd mako it Boom different
when yon cniiio. old girl," ho suid
huskily.
"Oh, Itlsnloiiio bo 'ero," snid Ellon.
Three days later Mrs. Gaspares emtio
to call, picking her way through the rod
dust of the road wilh littlo mliielng
Stops, She wus quite young mid vory
stout, uud her fat, brown l'aeo was
iiiiivelyiind Ihicklyeonledwilh powder.
81)0 hud abundant shiny Muck hair nnd
Binall, good niiturcd eyes. Sho woro a
bright hluo merino dress trimmed with
thin satin that crackled like paper. A
capo on her shoulders jangled with
beau's, and then, were red and yellow
(lowers iu her lionuet. A littlo observa
tion hnd corrected her mistake ns to
"(lice bride's English maid," nnd, although she considered Ellen n person of
low ideas, thero wns no ono else to talk
to, mid sho wns prepared to bo kind to
her. There wns no servant to bo seen in
tho veranda, nnd Mrs. Uosparoz raised
her shrill voico in vnin.
"Uoh, I hope this is not a verco great
lihorteo," said Mrs. Gaspare/ as, tired
of waiting, she stopped into tho littlo
sitting room. But tho room was empty.
Sho examined it critically. "Veroo
mint, "sho snid, "but not nt all sniartl
My, onloo two illltitnacassl"
Sho sat down, very genteelly, on the
edgo of a chair. Her flounces crackled
stiffly. Fivo minutes later tho brido appeared. Sho woro a big apron, and she
was turning down her sleeves.
"Ooh, I am sorroo to havo disturbed
you. I soo you havo been unpacking,"
Bald Mrs. Gaspare/, politely.
"I'm very glad to see yon, aud I 'ope
I 'aven't kept yon waiting long," said
Ellen, "bnt I didn't seo yon come, and
I couldn't mako ont what that boy Ab-
thiol was trying to tell mo at flrst I
was oat in tho kitchen. Don't you find
it vory tiresome 'nving your kitchen so
far from tho 'ouse?"
"Ooh, yes, but you will grow used
to it presontieo. I am verco particular.
I go into theo bawnchi khana overce
morning to boo what my bawachi, the
cook, yon kuow, is doing, and sometimes in the afternoon also "
Mrs, Gaspurcz's voice shrilled into unexpected cadences, aud she emphasized
small words and laid great stress on terminations with that Eurasian accent
which is ns indescribable as it is unmistakable. Ellen's voioo seemed very fnll
and deep as she replied
"I 'uven't got a cook. I don't mean
to 'avoone."
"My, how will you eat?" screamed
Mrs. Gasparez.
"Can't you cook?"
"My, nol I can mako lovelee metal,
sweets, you know, but to cook thee
meats, and thee soups, and thee curries,
ooh, nol"
"I don't liko curries," said Ellen.
"They're too spicy and all odds and
ends. You never know what you may
bo eating. John says ho likes my cooking tho best of any ho ever ate."
"Ooh, bnt your hands!"
Ellen glanced from her own capable
fingers to tho tightly stuffed yellow
gloves that lay on Mrs. Gasparoz's blue
lap. Oue of tho soems had burst, and a
ring with a vast red atone gleamed
through.
"Uso comes beforo looks," Bald Ellen.
"Ooh, yes!" said Mrs. Gasparoz
doubtfully.
" 'Avo you been 'ere long? Do yon
liko it?" asked Ellen.
' 'Onlce six months. It is verco dull.
Thoro is no societee. I often say to my
husband, 'I think I shall run away.'
Yon see, we camo from up couutreo, and
thoro it wus verco jollee, so manee people. Hero there ore onlee fonr houses. 1
do not know what to do with myself ahl
daylong."
"I should think your children would
keep you pretty busy," said Ellon.
"Ooh, yes, there are four, but they
are verco small. The babee is only 8
months old, nnd thoy have their ayah.
You sue, they are so noisoe, and I am
not strong."
"I don't fancy these natives," said
Ellen. "I shouldn't liko to seo their
black 'amis touching auy child I was
fond of." And then she remembered the
dark skin which so clearly proclaimed
Mrs. Gaspurcz's connection with the
country and felt very uncomfortable,
but fortunatoly Mrs. Gasparez considered herself purely European and always
spoko of tho England that she had never
Been ns "homo"
"My, yes, they are fearful, you will
ice. Your servants will always klkh
you, worree you, you know."
"I shall 'avo just as fow a. ever I can
do with. Wouldn't you liko to seo my
kitchen? You see," she continued, leading tho way into tho next room, "I
keep all the plates in 'ore aud shall do
the pastry making and so on 'ere, and
I wnuted John to let mo 'ave a stove,
bnt 'o says it won't do for tho 'ot
mather."
They went out to tho mud bnt in the
garden, which served as a kitchen. It
had been nowly whitewashed within
and without, and at tho freshly pinned
table Btood a depressed looking scullion
peeling potatoes. Ilo had scrambled
from his seat on tho floor at tho sound
of his mistress' voico.
"That's the ouly servant I'vo got In
tho 'ouso," snid Ellen proudly.
"Ooh, theo hot weather will soon
make yon lnzee," laughed Mrs. Gas-
pare«.
"Well, I mndo broad enough for three
days yesterday and baked lt in that
queer iron drum thing. John doesn't
liko tho baker's brond 'era. There was a
boetlo iu tho last wo 'ad."
"Ooh, you will soon grow lazoo, wo
shall see."
In tho courso of tho next few months
something very liko a friendship grew
np between these two dissimilar women. John Port was often away, up and
down tho lino, and Ellen beouuio a frequent visitor at thu house opposite. It
wns a larger houso than her own, but it
always uppoarcd hopelessly crowded.
The smell of savory moats lingered in
that houso, nnd odors of garlic, kerosene oil aud bad tobacco,strangely blended, never loft it Tlio dogs and tho children loft bones about, to bo tumbled
over nnd kicked into corners. Tho
clothes of the household seemed to hnvo
the habit of straying and wero to bo
mot in unexpected places. Tho boots
and i.lilrtsof Mr. Gasparez, tho brilliant
rulment nf his wife and tho tattored little garments nf tho children hnd nlikn
no abiding oity. Nothing, Indeed, was
in its right placo. Tho baby was lulled
to fitful slumber ill all armchair, while
a tailor, hired for tho day, squatted
Bowing ou a child's cot. Mrs. Gaspare/.',
abundant hair was generally brushed
nnd oiled ull tho front veranda, and thu
threo oldor children nto strange meals
at odd hours sitting on the floor nf any
room thoy happened to bo In, surrounded by servants, puppies nnd tamo birds.
Presently Ellen tried, both by preoopt
and practice, to instill a littlo order Into
tho eliiios, bnt Mrs. Gasparoz, stout iu
a whito dressing gown, ouly laughod at
her efforts:
"Ooh, you nro verco sillotil Whiltdoos
it matter? Walt till tho babies como to
your house, nnd then yon will not bo so
partleulurloo neat."
Although Ellen was ton courageous to
mako nny confessions, tho cruel heat of
a Bengal summer was n revolution of
terror to hor. Sho fought tho heat with
her favorite prescription of hard work
Indeed hor husband, who wna a great
deal away, hardly realized how mnoh
sho did. Sho cooked and oloaned, sho
mended aud mado clothes, sho oven
washed clothes sometimes, earning
thereby bitter headaches and tho scorn
of her neighbor, bnt a Arm sense of
right sustained her.
"Just think of what I'd bo doing at
'ome, John," she pleaded when her
husband notioed that her fresh face had
grown white and her light step heavy.
"I don't como out 'ero to spend all your
monoy on living like a fine lady, and
yot 'ere I don't need to wash my own
dishes, and that Abdool is learning to
cook quite nice. 'E can do lots of things
already. And, as for washing, wouldn't
your sister think 'erself in clover at
'ome with a sun like this to dry and
bleach the clothes? Yon let me 'ave my
own way, John. I can't sit idle and
shall 'ave to be a do nothing for a bit
when the Now Year comes." And at
the thought her needle sped more swift,
ly through tho little white garment she
was making.
John thought her looking ill, but he
supposed it was natural and inevitable,
and she never complained.
Then the rains came—at flrst a respite from torment presently torment
in thomsolves. A clinging, penetrating
damp Infected everything. The tank
overflowed, and the green garden became a dismal swamp, tenanted by
many frogs, whose barking kept Ellen
from sleeping. A broad dado of damp
showed itself on the walls of the little
pink house, and a thin film of bine mold
spread over their most cherished treasures. Ellen tried stoves in vain; nothing
could get rid of what she called "mushroom smell." John Port had several attacks of fever—sharp, short attacks euoh
as be had grown accustomed to and
thought very little of, bnt lt was terrible to Ellen to hear him raving in delirium. She attached no importance to
her own sufferings from neuralgia,
thongh a spike of pain seemed to be
piercing through her loft temple and
was her constant attendant all day long.
"I don't believe lu giving in," said
Ellen when the autumn fever smote her
In turn, and the ground seemed to glide
bom her tired feet and object! were
threo times their right sizo to weary
eyes, whose very lids felt hot "Just
think of the colds I should 'ave been
getting at 'ome," she repeated, with
persistent cheerfulness "Tbo influenza
again most likely, and don't yon talk
nonsense about this climato being so bad
for me," laid Ellen to her husband
After the first few months, after
health and high spirit! had flagged,
came a terrible nostalgia, and that too,
was hidden from John Port He never
guessed the passion of longing for her
own people that filled bis wife's heart
and it wai very rarely expressed in her
letters home; but none the less, it was
an ever present pain.
"My, yon are looking soodoel" said
Mrs. Gaspares.
"I 'ave a little fever at night sometimes, "said Ellen, "bnt it's nothing,
and I suppose it will get cooler every
day now."
"Ooh, yes, it will Boon be ahlrlgbt
and I have some news to tell you. My
(later ii coming to itay with me—my
roungost sister, Miss de Cruz."
"That will be pleasant for you," said
Ellen heartily.    "Is she a nice girl?"
"My, yeal She Is a beauteo! Eyes
tbat big, hair so long, and her figure,
ooh, so lovelee I Sho will have monce,
too, some day, for my old grandmother
is very fond of her and says she will
I leave her ahl .he has, ever so manee
rapoosl"
Miss de Cru waa brought to call a
few days later—a big girl, plump and
: inanely, with magnificent eyes. Sho
1 fawned openly through Ellen's attempts
to talk and brightened to coquettish
livollness when John Port camo into
the room.
1    "That's a fine, handsome girl, a fine,
i'trapping girl," aald John Port later,
tken, with n clumsy laugh, "You aren't
I tnuoh to look at now, old woman."
;    "True enough,'' laid Ellen, laughing
back, and thon she went away and
looked at horsolf In the glass with new
eyes.
"I do wish lt didn't make ono so
plain for so long," she said to the worn
faco and unguin figure sho saw reflected thoro.
And nil this wh lo Ellen took no heed
of tho new world round her. Sho hoard
tho wedding musio from the surging
ways of tlio native town, and sho said,
"Well, they uro milking n nolso." She
.aw tho dead slowly borne past the littlo pink house to tho funeral pyre, and
sho snid: "They're going to burn 'lm.
Isn't it 'orrid?" She lived iu India, savo
for the wide difference of beat, dlacnm-
fort und loneliness, exactly us sho would
hnvo lived In England. Tlio only native
with whom Bho held anything approaching to speech was Abdool. a craven representative indeed, and the conclusion
she drew from hor Bludy of his character wub that they wero "a dirty lot."
Sho took no Interest In her surroundings. The littlo pink house in its wealth
of strange flowers was only pleasing to
her because It had been allotted to her
husband, and sho trusted the garden
would look more lioiiielikowhonn child
played there. Shn watched the long lino
of rails down which John's train would
come without n thought of whnt the
land hud boon before tlie wonderful iron
road traversud It There was no romance
for her in the widely varying tracts that
trniu enine through, nml she had no desire to Bee more nf the country lu which
her lot was east. "Tliu gorgeous east"
held fur her neither glamour nor glory.
Her days wero passed in an endless succession of small duties and iu secretly
hoping that sho would feel better tomorrow.
Toward the end of Novemlier Abdool
ran over to Mrs. Gasparez's house one
morning with nn urgent, message.
"My," said Mrs. Gaspare! as she
caught up a solah topoe, "onlee seven
month I"
That was at breakfast time, nnd John
Port was away up the Hue and would
not return till tlio morning of the next
day,
"I am Borry to Imtlier yon," snid Ellon through her agony, "hut 1 was that
bail all night, and 1 did want some ono
to speak ta"
"Ooh, 1 will stay gladleo," said
Mrs. Gaspare/., "and I will send for tho
doetor, and you will soon bo ubl right"
Tho doctor came presently and wont
and camo again Mrs. Gasparez wept
fluent tears ovor tbe sufferings that
conld uot lie ntlayed, oven as sho said,
"Ooh, yon will be ahl right vereo
boou!" Ellon lay with clinched teeth,
trying not to writbo or cry ont "I do
'ate to give you all this trouble,'' she said
often.
"Bnt she was strong," said Mrs.
Gasparez to the doctor iu tho next room.
"She worked so hard, she did, ooh, everything I 1 am not strong, but I was
never like this, never."
"Shn has worn herself ont," said the
doctor. "The climate counts for something, and she has nover considered it"
Somo time aftor midnight tho child
was born—a dend child—and tbo doctor
went tn Mrs. Gasparez's houso for a little rest Mrs. Gaspares sat nodding and
blinking and drinking strong tea, and
Ellen seemed to be sleeping.
Just before dawn Ellen roused herself
and talked for a few minutes to Mrs.
Gasparez She had a message to leave
with her.
"Ooh, no; yon are not going to die!"
sobbed Mrs. Gasparez. "Go to Bleep
again aud do not bo so silica Tho next
babee will live, and it will ahl be jollee."
Ellen smiled faintly. "Don't you forget," Bho whispered and turned her
head on the pillow, bnt instead of going
to sleep her faoe changed aud worked
strangely, and Mrs. Gasparez ran ont
calling wildly for tbe doctor. Ellen's
last doleful sceno waa acted alone, bnt
it must have boon a abort one, for when
Mra Gasparez and the doctor camo
back they found her dead
John Port's train camo in at 7 o'clock
The doctor met bim and told him of his
wife's death, bnt ho did not realize or
understand what had happened till ho
came to tho littlo pink house. Abdool
was In the veranda lamenting ostentatiously, bnt Port pnt him aside and
went into the bedroom. It smelt stuffy
and sickly after the fresh morning air,
and it waa exceedingly nntidy. A white
sheet waa thrown over tho bed, and
Mra. Gasparez, her eyelids puffy with
crying and want of Bleep, came to meet
him.
"I have a message for you," she said
"I was to give you her love, and she
was veree sorroo not to see you again,
and she hoped yon would not mind that
the babee waa dead, for it waa reallee
much better and wonld leave yon quite
freo to niarree again. Ooh, she did love
you."
John Btood by the bed and laid hla
hand on the brown hair, pushing aside
the scarlet flowers with which Mra
Gasparez had surrounded the still face.
"Never another wife for me," he said,
"never another woman in your place,
old girl, all my life long."
Aud through tho window camo the
Bound of the high pitched voice of Miss
.o Cruz, Sho was taking a morning
.troll with a devoted admirer.
"Ooh, yes, Mr. Woods, that is ahl
veree fino,veree pretty, I daresay, onlee
you do not moan it"
It was in the spring, five months later, that John Port married Miss de
Cruz, and Mrs. Gasparez explained to
hor friends that "it was not such a
veree bad match for Eulaleo, for that
nice wife of Mr. Port's who died, poor
thing, was very thrifteo, and sho had
saved, ooh, quite a great manee rupees!"—Beatrice Kipling in Pall Mull

Instrument D0.orib.ll by a Polltlcul
Exile Who Hie. Suffered III Sllu-rlu.
One never knows for eortnin how
much of thu knout Is left iu modern
Hussiu. The telegraph wire Still ut times
carries the horrid whiz of it from remain Siberia, nnd only tho other duy I
saw mention in news from St. Petersburg nf 11 now imperial ukase, "abolishing tho use nf (he kilnut for the punish-
ment of offenses committed by the pous-
intry, which has hitherto boou completely ul, the mercy of the local jndgoH in
tills respect. " I was under the Impression Hint Ihe "local judges" had been
doprlvodof their knout for 90 years or
moro, hut the sender of this  ssago
adds that "statistics wero submitted In
the czar, showing thai in len years 8,000
persons, mostly guilty of thefts nf produce, had died after punishment wilh tho
knout."
Granted Iho Infliction of the knnilt,
the 0,000 deaths are easily helioveiL
The instrument itself, supposing tills report, to ho (rue, evidently dies harder
Ihan its victims. Hut even III Russia,
whero the rod and iis equivalents have,

felt, and ono is disposed lo regard as exaggerated tho statements just, quoted,
Qortnlnly wo had I u given to boliovo
thnt the knout, was abolished for all but
tho gravest, offense as long ago as 1800,
Hut Hussiu has never boon governed
wholly by iis written laws, and thoro
ore legions of (hut empire where a ultimo
may he slow to roaoh tlio "local judges."
The merciful edict of 1800, however,
Btopisvl short at tlio confines nf Siberia,
and it was with the object of learning
tn what extent Hie knout Is used in Iho
Siberia of today that 1 sought nn interview with 11 distinguished and very interesting exile, M. Alexander Boolino-
zowski, on a visit, tn England M. So-
ehoezowski, a Polo by birth, an urlist
by profession, and in England to ur-
raiigo for the exhibition of a picture
which will innvo the sympathies of every friend of the victims of tho czar,
was 11 politk'iil exile iu .Siberia at the
ago of 31 and suffered t'i yours in the
mines, during 2'-,, of which he carried,
night and day, chains of which marks
are permanently graven un his ankles.
Twenty yoars in ull wero tho days of
bis exile, and ho counts himself happy
that ho did not like so many of his
comrades in oppression, perish under
thnt cmel yoke. Indeed ho speaks without bitterness nud says that even iu Siberia one may often forget oneself.
M. Sochnczcwfiki could say mnch nbout
the knout. Ho had beeu many times a
witness of its infliction. The knout, in
foot, wns in nse In the mines during the
whole of M. Soohaozewskl's oxilo, and
thoso who were condemned to it suffered
in public.
At the present day M. Sochaozowski
believed that it was practically abolished in 1893, but tho governor retains a
certain discretionary power, which mny
mean much in Siberia, Would M. 80-
cbaczewBki describe tho punishment?
He took a half sheet of note paper nud a
pen and made a rapid sketch. "That is
tho knout," ho said. A band of leather,
as is weil known, serves tho executioner for a handle, aud the knont itself is a single thong of leather, rongh
and very hard, tapering toward tho extremity, where it is weighted with a
ball of lead. With this the executioner
—who is generally a reprieved murderer—can inflict as great or as little suffering as ho pleases.
"Thus," said M. Sochaczowski, "the
prisoners wonld sometimes give him a
ruble to prove his skill, when ho wonld
strike one of them, apparently with fnll
force, across tho palm of tho bund, bnt
tho blow wonld scarcely be felt and
wonld not leave a scratch. With the
same instrnmont he could kill at asingle
stroke, and was occasionally bribed by
a condemned prisoner to do so, breaking
the ribs and almost tearing ont the
heart
What number of strokes, I asked 31
Scchaczewski, were ordinarily inflicted?
He replied that it was of uo groat consequence, inasmnchas punishment with
the knont waa generally regarded aa a
sentence of death. A uiau nnder sentence ot 100 lashes might die at the
third lash, iu which case the remaining
0? wonld be given to the corpse. It waa
possible, if the executioner did not employ his whole art or strength, for the
viotim to escape death, bnt he wonld
thon inevitably be a cripple for tho rest
of his life Thore wore mon in the hospital iu his time whom the knont had

I asked whother the knout exhausted
the resources of penal discipline in Siberia, "By no means," said ML Sochaczowski.
He took up his pen again, and scratched me a picture of a whip culled the
plet, which has three tails of twisted
leather, with bits of metal at tho tips.
It iB a little less deadly than tho kuont,
but an export (logger can kill his victim
at the fifth stroke. There Is n difference
in Hogging with the knout nnd with the
plet The knont, like the English' 'cat,"
Is laid across the back. Tho three tails
of the plet score tho book downward,
from the nape of tho nock to tho loins,
aud evory stroke, proporly givon, carries
away three strips of skin ond bites well
into the flesh. Yes. M Sochaczowski
had seen many comrades suffer uuder
the plet "Protest? To what end?" To
protest was to bo tied np oneself. The
very dogger ran the risk of being out to
pieces with knont or plet if he fnilcd to
kill or maim his victim.—St Paul's.

CLOVERDALE, OCT. 11, 1895.
TIIK BRIDGE AGAIN,
In   Uie  dorioH of iirticlcri  Unit
we  iinvi, boon publishing  upon
bridge   matters,   (lie   Intontlon
wns   im   tnoro   Uuiii   to   jiresont
i lio buBlnoss ns It stand*) according   in   reliable   private   Information mnl (liictiiiii'iilury evidence
freely Bllpplled to uh by u number
of parties in nn.1 nut of Westminster wbo profess in appreciate our
presentment of tlio case.   An Uie
criticism bus proceeded, views not
originally contemplated have been
forced upon us by the accumulation of fuels, until we lire obliged lo
conclude that in  thin bridge business the public interest Iiiih been
but u small factor.    The exposure,
it little lime ngo, of Uie methods of
the llullen company was n surprise
lo Itiany people, although rumors
more or less distinct hud been current for some timo previously, and
it must now be agreed on all hands
thut Ihe Bullen company did not
seek the contract on straight bus!
ncss merits, Ths only other proposition that has been actively before
the Westminster ratepayers is the
"Rand scheme," and there are very
few people in the Royal City to-day
who, if they  speak candidly, will
say that thnt scheme, after  two
years trial, has  proved itself  to
liitv* been based on business principles.   On Ihe contrary, the great
ttiusfi of people in the city and in
the district ure Utterly disgusted
with the Hand scheme, and the
very mention of  it makes them
weary.-      While   the delay  was
slowly ltecumuliiting,many persons
in und out of the city were able to
exercise u measure of faith in the
bona fide character of the proposition and contain their souls   in
pence, but the utter failure of Mr.
Itiiiul to  fulfil  his  undertakings
has gone on demonstrating to that
point Where any further exercise of
fuith   would  be  mere  weakness.
With  a  collapse  of  faith  there
usually comes ti period Of Inquiry,
ami men are' how asking themselves
the  meaning   of   the   persistent,
partisan clinging to » speculative
venture long since moribund, and
that cannot be revived by all the
Stimulating   efforts    of    Mr.    J.
(J.   Brown'    tfml    others.      Cer-
tiiiiVly', men have very much changed their ideas in regard to   Mr.
Rand's scheme to' hlri-rd a bridge
And short line of railway hr consideration  of certain  very  large
bonus>' from the cities of Vancouver and Westminster.   It is being
seen (hat the scheme hns not public utility for its first consideration, but private advantage.    No
One, of course, expects' Mr.- Rand,*
as ni'i iMventurer trndWg' ih lVrldge
and railway bonuses, to devote his
time und talents to the enterprise
without fair  prospect of generous
reward, and tbe right of others, if
there be any such, to share in the
professed. Unfortunately It gives
no such assurance, and as ii means
to un end we huve ventured to discuss the whole business. Return'
ing now to the cily, it is clour that
ratepayers begin to havo grave
doubt of the (iiiiincial advantages
of the Rand Boheme, along witb
the older conviction of its imbecility, Jt is argued that whereas
the city rejoices in Iho ownership
of light and water systems, and has
constantly rooomthendod thoso
possessions us evidence of wise
management, yd to obtain a needed brldgo over the Kniser it is willing to pay sonic 170,001) more than
tho cost of the bridge, nnd then
givo the bridge to Mr. Kami's company us an inducement In build n
railway Unit mnny citizens do not
want built, because it would likely
carry trade past the olty.   In tliis
connection, Statements hftVO reached us touching tlio advocacy of the
Rand scheme in tho city Council
that carry a plain repetition of
what was inferred from Mayor
Shilcs' rcfofonce to the llullon
propositions.
If, then, there is no proposition
under discussion by the Council
for the const ruction of tho bridge
on business principles, what is to
be done ? To us, there appears no
course open but to drop tbe enterprise during the life of tho present
Council ; to make tlio bridge the
issue of the next civic election
and then to proceed us tbe ratepayers may, by their votes, have
ordered. We have before us Bngi
neer Cooper's report on tlio amend'
ed bridge plans, and we find thut
tbe Uullen tender for an approved
bridge was *330,058.50; that the
Dominion company's plans, as approved by Mr. Cooper, were tendered upon at k)828|600; and that the
Hamilton company's plan, defective in sidewalk load but otherwise
approved, was tendered upon at
$3(54,809.09. With the Bullen
plans thrown out, as they ought to
be> there should be ho difficulty in
a new Council reaching It prompt
decision as to the merits, on every
count, of the two Canadian companies, presuming it be the wish of
the ratepayers to proceed with the
work; and with the particular
plans decided itpon in this business
like vtayt the complaint of nn antiquated feri-y-hoat being the only
means of the large southern trade
reaching the city, would not long
hold.
The great northern,
A couple of weeks ago we critt"
clsed at some length the objectionable treatment that the people of
Surrey are receiving at the hands
of the American Managers of thb
Westminster Southern railway, tHe
whole of which line is located in
the Municipality of Surrey. We
showed that here are 25 miles of
ruilway on Cariadiun territory,
operated for four years by foreigners, and that nowhere along the
line was there any practical accomodation for freight or passengers, und we charged that the fault
was either With the foreign
Managers, who were neglecting
their charter duties, or with the
B. C. Legislature; which had
neglected to provide fttt these duties
when the charter was made law;
To this" 6harge, there has been no
response that we are aware of from
the local Ministers of the Crown
who are responsible for Legislative
action, and it is quite possible that
theso representatives of the public,
in the desire to accommodate private
reward,, if it cun be earned, may be I peculators, forgot br neglected to
Ugoodasirrtrwetueottheadren- BftUrd ,he Publi<; rights of whielt

in our last iss'te, w*j wore in error
in sityinji thrif *rV« room* in the:
section house, had boon sot apart
for freight und passenger service.
Wo contend that it is tlio clear
duly ol tho Company to build
suitable station buildings for tho
publio accomodation al convenient
distances along tho lino. Tho
choice of locution rests with tho
Company, und although us boforo
stated, tlie liiilc town of ciovordale
Iiiih Strong claimu upon the Company for station buildings—yet
that is only u sido issue of what
wo aro contending for as u public
right, namely, Blmllar accommodation for freight und passengers
lo Unit furnished liy all other mil-
ways in Canada, Tlio Groat
Northern's Ii. 0, branch is an
anomaly,   As regard) Oloverdale,
if the Ruilwiiy Management does
not intend In plucu buildings hero,
our people want to lie iniforniod of
tbo fact now; if it is ibe Intention
to   coiiHirtlct   buildings   here,   wo
want them constructed now. Four
years is long enough to wait for
what should havo been obligatory
with the commencement of the
operation of the road. Of courso,
if ibe Company should set apart
it room nr two of tho section house
for the public, build a platform,
nnd ho forth, the weight of what is
'oniplnined about as respects
Cloverdale would bf met in sort,
but it would only be in sort, us nn
evident temporizing measure, while
part of tlie anxiety of Ihe people
to Heo regulation buildings erected
along the line is in tbe confidence
these buildings would inspire of
the perlnancy of their locution, resulting in road construction tending towards these points, und tbe
consequent establishment of small
trade centres. The railway would
then be an encouragement to
settlement, while tinder present
conditions its influence is unsettling.
The business men and general
public of Surrey have been dealt
hardly with by the Great Northern
management in every way. The
writer has paid this Company if 4.00
per ton for carrying ordinary merchandise from South Westminster
to Cloverdnle, while the uliurge for
wagon freight from Westminster,
including ferrynge, isnnly W.OO.
The company makes n>) allowonce
for the odds a business man of
Surrey is at by reaBon of the river
crossing, and overreaches by seeking a rate that the few business
men who are here in spite of the
railway can improve upon by
ordinary wagon carriage. Neither
are railway passeilg>r rates much
admired in this district. Tho fare
from Cloverdale is precisely the
snme by railway as it was by stage
befOrb the railway was built.
From 'other points, the old stage
fare was lower than now obtains.
These matters present the railway
as a very useless institution in Surrey, which unfortunately is true.
Doubtless, the available traffic
is at best exceedingly limited. The
settlers of Surrey have felt this,
and they have realized that while
the tfrminus of the road soutli oj
the river is a bar to any considerable increase in traffics yet that
the Company mny be excused from
incttrrihg the lnrge expense of
crossing the river in the present depressed state of trade in Ihte Coast
cities. It is because of this appreciation of the difficulties the
road K contending with, that the
public generally have so patiently,
«ven complacently, accepted the
shortcomings of a railway four
years in operation. The demand,
howWver, for suitable station buildings along the line is so moderate,
the cost Would be so relatively
trifling, while the satisfaction to
the public would be so considerable, that a neglect on tlie part of
the Company to comply, should,
in our judgment-, be met by the
nuthority of those whose business
it is to guard the public welfare.
It is not contended that salaried
agents should be provided for these
several stations or Indeed for nny
bf them. The Sltiall traffic, it is
admitted, would hfot justify it at
the preset time: tout buildings
hre needed for public accommodation, to botoken the good faith of
the company; llnd to iiid in MN King
