Hon  Jos. Martin spoke here at a  meeting on   the * 30th   inst.   ^ The  hon. gentleman' rather disappointed  most of his audience, who evidently  expected a stirring oltctfon uspeech.  ' However, having hJd lo drive from  Alberni to Comox   in one- day,  it  was no wonder that he was as mild  as a'piofessional'poliiciancan well  be.    He plaintively asked the question, -'Why do people object to me?/  The first part of his speech seemed  to lean toward* party   lines  where  he s.'iid he  wantJd a   fair fight< on  "leading   principles.'"*      This    Mas  afterwards   contradicted    by him  giving his   opinion   that   Liberals  f and   Conservatives    should  stand  together arid fight the Chimse question.    On the question of roads', he (  teld^ihe. meeting   that   his  policy  was to borrow a l.irge sum  to have  have plenty of money1 in the treasury to build roads.    Not in tne way  that they  had. been' built, but to  finisn up a road when once started:  Bit, to meet   interest and  finking  fund, t-xe.-i  would', have   to be imposed, for  a'-government   had   no  mo, .ey of its  o--- n. ' ut only what it  go by tax,������ti n.     Regarding  rgov-  ��������� r..meijt ow -ensbip of- Vai.wa.ys,'he  said that he admitted   that at, fitst  they did not at   firf-t p-������y , but' ihe  c-o t of maintenancewbu'd ,uot fall  upon-the jieopie.^'He" did' not   well  explain, however .how   the' defhU;  ,>', obid'be madf-up.

Not tet-ml' g to Lake-into consider-  raiion that the meeting had bee*,  ca led by Mr. M -l'tin, who was not,  so far as was then known', associ-'  ateJ in any way with either candidate, and that Mr. Mounce wa-  quite at liberty to refrain from giving his views to the publ c or in  discussing his platform, uand to  aitend as any other person to he������u  what the hon. gentleman had to say.  Mr. McPhee toM the meeting that  freights by the Union Steamship  Co.'s boats were $2 per ton to Salmon river, and that the former  members had not come back after  ^being elected to see the people.,  Mr. Ryder then told the meeting  about some pencils in the government that c 'St a who'.e lot more  than they should, and after remarks about Chinese labor in connection w ith which he made a remark-which; we do. not care to publish, and one which should not  have been given utterance out of  respect for the ladies in the hall,  apart from the question of one?  own family's sake.  Mr. Matthews asked Mr. Mar.in  who he was speaking in fa\or of.  as he had stated that he was g ing  to run a man in every constituency.  Martin evaded the question by answering that he spoke so that,electors  c uld judge for themseives, passing  to ano her question and after enlarging on that, quickly taking his  ���������seat. Mr. Matthew's tben press d  the question on Mr. McPhee' as to  what side he was taking, who finally admitted that he was a nip-  porter of the government, excepting  their railway plank which he wouid  have to study more before pi enouncing on.  At Courtney the next night. We  are told that Mr. Martin spoke in  much the same tenor as heie,  and that Mr. McPhee fully endorsed  his platfjorm, railway and all.  At Government meeting at Union  Wharf :������n the 2nd, some   difficulty  was experienced in getting a chair-?  man.    Mr. McPhee spoke . a   little  and was followed by Mr. Ryder who  delivered a scathing oration against  employers of Chinese"'   MrJ Matth- ���������  ew-s asked h m "Did you never employ Chinese for ditching and make  the remark that you would be a fool  to pay white   men $50 or   bo more  f >r the work?"'    "No   never!"   twas  the arswer and a challenge  to pro-'  duce a man who   had   heard  him  say it.    Mr. Walker a  once   stood*  up and informed  the meeting  and'  Mr.   Ryder, that   he,   Ryder,   had  ������said so to him in his store in Cum- .  bet land, aud hud further staled that*  he had beaten Grant &'Mounce, for.  he had got   ditching   done on ,th������  ranch for less than they had.

S> '��������� /  THE  WORLD'S DESIRE.  Thero was born to ,tlie world last night  A woman child for the world's delight.  Her mouth was small as a rosebud is,  Before the bee and the blossom kiss;  Her hair was a cloud and her eyes were fire,  Her hands were full of delight and desire;  Her cheek was a rose full blossoming,  Her voice was honey, her tongue a sting.  Before the night took thought of the day  The child was born (with a caul they say).  The caul shall serve licr in place o: a charm  That water and fire shall not do her harm.  The child was bom to bring all men grief,  Hunger and thirsting beyond relief.  An ill star shone on the.bitter morn,  When the mother died and the child was born.  She shall be christened with water of tears,  With doubtful pleasure and happy fears;  We will name her Helen, that she shall be  A warning, a wonder 'twixt sea and sea;  Though the waves o'crwhelm her, she shall not  dro-vn,  She shall not bum in tho burning town,  Except she burn of her own while fire,  The world's disaster, the world's desire.  ���������Xora Hopper in Butterfly.  | flUTTtE C0I8Y     !  !    II [Bill!  It was a gala night at tbe little up town  theater, and all Harvard had turned out  in honor of' the annual benefit of Nella  Ward, the reigning idol of the town, the  daintiest laughing blond that ever graced the boards. . The boxes rained flowers,  and enthusiasm was at its height. During a temporary lull in' the performance  Robert Winthrop found his way behind  the scenes and secured a fleeting tete-a-  tete with the heroine of the .hour. The  girl was flushed and radiant, her rare  loveliness heightened by tho unwonted  excitement of the occasion, yet there was  a moody flash in his eye,as he regarded  her. ,   . '     ���������       '  -   '  < "Nell, was the promise you made me  one day a myth or an honest pledge for  the future? On such a night as' this I  doubt and wonder was I dreaming."'  "Robert Winthrop"���������and for an instant the laughing blue eyes' lightened  ' with anger���������"do you,begrudge me my, little hour of triumph? I have earned it,  believe me, and what is more fleeting than  fame such as this? Or is it a simple attack of jealousy?" ���������'���������  "Nell,   I  am  in  earnest.     Matters  are  coming to a climax at home, and it is only a question of time when I break loose  from family authority.    Though I forfeit  a-fortune, I will be my own-master,, and  for your dear sake what sacrifice would 1  not make?    But first of all I must know  your mind."  "You may know it and welcome," and  ,,  she turned on him in a spirited fashion.'  "Once 'for all'do not come to open  rupture wtith your,people,on' my account:    I  ��������� will enter no home unwelcqmed."  "And your promise?" bitterly. "Ah;  Nell, I might have known the end of it  all���������dreams and delusions."  "I did not promise to marry you under  the rose, and on no account will "I embroil you with your family."  "Yet you have led me on from day to  day with fair smiles and fairer promises."  "Rofc, Rob"���������and she laid her little  hand on his arm an instant���������"are you  seeking a quarrel with me tonight, when  I am so happy? Wait, wait, and time  will untangle tho coil. Summer is coming. Go on a yachting trip with some  friends and forget it all."  "Forget!" impetuously. "Nell, you  have never known love if you could suggest such a thing."  "No?" and a strange smile flitted across  her flowerlike face; then at a burst of  music from,the orchestra she pushed him  from her and ran on to the stage with a  laughing "goodnight," and a moment later he heard the storm of applause that  greeted her entrance.  But his box remained vacant the rest  of the evening.  *******  It was the loveliest hour of the 2-1, the  meeting  of  sunset  and  moonrise.     The  lapsing tide still -glowed' and. palpitated  with   rose   and   violet   tints,   while   the  young   moon,    like   a    drawn    scim iter,  gleamed   bright   above' the   shimmering  sea.    Mrs. Winthrop sat on the balcony  of  her summer  villa   and   watched   the  chain of lights kindling along the darkened coast and then 'turned, with a sigh to  her girlish companion.  "Dear madam, what troubles you ?"  "Lucie, I was thinking of Robert, my  son.     When   will   he come  back   to   me  again?   Two months he has been sailing  about in his yacht, with never a word or  sign.    We parted in anger, but I will not  permit the  boy  to  wreck  his  life  while  any show of authority is left to me.  "Strange child, how I have given my/  confidence since first you came to me this  summer, but my, heart was full, and you  are sympathetic beyond any one I have  ever known. Lucie, will he ever outlive  this mad infatuation? I know well that  opposition is a perilous element in a iove  affair", but I could uot countenance a mistake of that sort. An actress"���������in accents of horror. .-"Conceive of it. my  dear. Never has a Winthrop so far descended in the social scale."  "Have you ever seen the girl?" falter-  ingly.  "Never. I do not frequent theaters.  Robert has strange bohemian tastes, and  they have led him into dangerous ways.  No doubt she is a siren, as thoy nil are."  "Dear madam, you should.not condemn  the poor girl unheard. She probably  plays for a livelihood. We cannot all be  born to the purple of idleness."  "Lucie, you mistake. It is not that.  Were she merely poor as you. my child,  I should not feel the same, but an actress"���������  "An actress may have a heart."  "Lucie," with emphasis, "I trust not.  There lies my hope, and I confess it.  Marriage with a Winthrop must prove a  temptation to a girl of that class, but  when once she realizes that it means poverty and social ostracism she will throw  him over without a pang. Better a few  months of heartbreak for the. poor boy  than the mistake of a lifetime."  Silence reigned for a few moments:  then hurrying footsteps came up the  stairs on to the balcony. Mrs. Winthrop  sprang up. crying. "My son!" Lucie slipped from the hammock with a startled  air. and for a space all was confusion.  Robert's moody restlessness of the past  year seemed to have slipped from him,  and his mother's heart beat high with  hope when he announced his intention of  btaying at the vilhi. the remainder of the  "���������en son.  At the earliest opportunity Lucie had  passed into the house, leaving mother  and son alone. But later on, when Mrs.  vVinthioD had retired for the it tent, she  stepped out for a moment in se.-n.cn 01 c������  missing shawl, caught the glow of a cigar  in the dusk, hesitated and then yielded  to the situation.  "Nell, what comedy is this you are  playing here in my house? What does it  all mean?"  '   "Hush,   Robert,"   beseechingly.     "You  .will betray all."  "I will indeed. Where have yon been  hiding away all summer? I sought for  you vainly at the close of the seaspli."  "Robert, I havo been 'here ia your  homo for the last two months���������your  mother's companion."  "A companion���������you!" scornfully. "What  would the world say? It shall not last  another day."  "Rob, Rob," and she put out an imploring hand, "promise me that you will keep  silence for a time. I had a motive in  coming. Don't ruin all and place me in  the light of ah impostor."  "Nell; I will make no .premises, but I  shall remain on the spot the rest of the  summer and act as seems to me right and  fitting to the occasion."    <  True to his word, he lingers on throughout tho season. Mrs. Winthrop accepts  the situation with\inward joy and outward calm. With rare diplomacy she  leaves the young couple to" themselves  from day to day and trusts to time and  propinquity and the moving charm of  summer to do the rest. Never before has.  she been guilty of matrimonial scheming,  but her fears and forebodings have  wrought a revolution in that proud nature. Could the sweetness of the gentle  Lucie but steal her son's heart fro'm ��������� its  past allegiance she would gladly overlook  all disparities of birth and fortune.  Robert can never reconcile himself to  the little comedy she is playing, without  his consent and threatens at auy moment  to force the situation. .���������   ������������������-���������-.  And poor Nell's conscience has awakened under the kind and almost motherly  treatment of Mrs. Winthrop. She feels  all unworthy the confidence reposed in  her, and each day renders'"'confession the  more ditficult, till at last she becomes so  frightened by the situation that she  would - fain take refuge in ignominious  flight. Then again her "careless nature  asserts itself, and she throws fear to the  wjnds, charms Robert to, a happier mood,  and/.they, sail a.way from'the land like  children at play.v - ��������� .   '* .    ��������� 'Y,  -\sOne ev'ening she sits at tlie piano singing, while mother and son listen from the  little balcony aud watch the great white  moon climb upward from the watery  waste of the gray sea.  The girl ha\s a rarely svreet mezzo soprano, with a certain sympathetic thrill  in it that goes straight to the heart. As  she wanders absently from one song to  another Mrs. Winthrop is much moved.  "What a rare gift of song," she murmured. "Robert, my son, could this be  your choice it would make my heart glad,  you.ca-n search the world over aud fail  to find a lovelier nature."  "Mother," and he caught her hand in  an eager clasp, "you really, mean it���������you  consent?"  At that moment Nell stepped out ou  the balcony. "Nell," he cried, with a  joyous ring in his voice, "mother has  given the consent I dared not ask."  "Ah. Robert, you have learned to love  her, then, thanks to the old lady's diplomacy."  "Yes, mother. I have loved her long  and deeply."  But-as she leaned forward to kiss the  speechless girl Nell recoiled from her embrace.     "No, "no:  not yet,  dear madam.  First hear my confession and  then condemn me if you will."  "Your confessiq,n?" ih*rbewilderment.  In vain  Robert laid a protesting hand  on.her.arm, implored her with his glance.  i'l will speak, I; will, if I, forfeit all by'  my confession.    Dear madam,  hear me.  I  am not the  modest,  lowly companion  whom   you   have   known   and   loved   all  summer.    I am an impostor, an innocent  one, it may be, but an impostor all the,  same." . ,.  * "Hush, my child," in a strange, startled tone. "To me you have been a faithful friend. I care nothing for the.secrets  of your past."  "Listen to me. dear madam." she panted, feeling her courage fast ebbing away.  "I���������I am Nella Ward, the actress your  son honored with his love."  "No, no! I will not believe it."  Still the pleading voice went on, while  the lover's face flushed and paled, and  Mrs. Winthrop hardened to sternness as  the truth was borne in upon her.  "I acted upon impulse when first 'I'  came to you. I said I will know and win  the mother of the man I .love. She will  not come to me. but I will go to her, and  then some day. when she has learned to  ' love me for my own sake, I will make  my confession. I���������I can say no more."  Her roice broke, and she sank down by  her lover's side, hiding her face in her  hands.  Silence followed this broken speech,  and when Mrs. Winthrop spoke again it  was in slow, measured tones that chilled  the hearts of her hearers.  "You have laid siege to a mother's  heart, betrayed her most sacred confidences, destroyed her faith in human nature. You two have conspired against  me," she flamed forth, with growing fire  and resentment, "while I have been the  willing dupe, of your deep designs."  "No, no, dear madam," pleadingly. "It  was all my doing, and the punishment  shall be mine alone." '  "Never will I believe in truth or innocence again," she began, but the girl detected the waver in her voice, caught her  hand to her lips and kissed it.  . "Go away," weakly.    "Ah, child, how  I have loved you. what hopes I have  cherished this snr.unor!" And then*,  yielding to impulse, she put her arms  about the kneeling figure and burst into  tears.  "I do believe in you. child." she sobbed,  "and   I   forgive  the  deception   that   has  me a much needed lesson-."  fit  taught  And the lovers' clasped hands in the  darkness, with "hearts too full for speech.  ���������Boston Budget.  'John Bright anil tl\o "Little Cur Doff.  Bright was very happy once in describing a certain'small party of Liberal renegades who deserted Gladstone becar.se of  his great effort to enfranchise the working classes. The party was very small,  but exceedingly mischievous, for it included two or three men of great talent  and great "bitterness. Bright in his spec h  made allusion to this little group of. apostates and to the fact that nobody seemed  to be quite clear as to who was its actual leader,' and he sent the house into  shouts of laughter by likening the party  to a Scotch terrier he once had. which  was so small and so shaggy that it' was  almost impossible to toll which was its  head >and which was its tail. <  ."He is a self made man," Bright once  fsaid of Disraeli, "and' we must all admit  that he worships his maker."���������Justin McCarthy in Satnnlnv Evpniny Post.

From the physists'  point of view,   as  expressed by Lord Kelvin, 20,000,000  years would be the minimum and 40,-  000,000 the maximum age.    Even the  longest of these estimate's is far   too  short for the evolutionist-to  account  for.all the biologic changes which are  exhibited in the progress of life as we  know it.    This problem ,of, the earth's  age has  now     been   attacked   by , , a  'mineralogist   in   the   person   of     Professor Joly, an Irishman.     He arrives  a.t his  conclusions  by considering the  primal crust of the" earth to have consisted  of minerals  which  were  of the  same composition as those existing at  the present time, and that the prima-  tive rain and rivers contained no so-  ,dium,  but a certain  amount of chlorine is supposed  to have been present  in  the     atmosphere    as   hydrochloric  acid.     Then,   by  assuming  erosion, of  the land to have proceeded uniformly  from   the  earliest  geological  to     the  present time,  thc^amount of any substance discharged in a known time by-  all the rivers would give the, amount  of that substance removed    from the  land  in   that  length   of  rime.     Xr.  the  present insstanco sodium was taken as  the basis.     It is supposed to be    removed      from   tho   rocks-as   common'  salt. ' i  ��������� The data for, tlie calculations are as  follows: The rivers" of the world contain ' 2-1,3 06 tons of sodium per cubic  mile, and their discharge into the  ocean is at the rate of 6/125 " cubic  miles per "annum. Therefore the mass  of' sodium in the ocean divided by  the mass annually brought down by  the rivers'-gives'the length of time  in which the mass' in the' ocean accumulated. The result is S9,565,000-  years, or about 90,000,000 j-ears , as  the age of our earth.  CAPRICE.   ,  A crowned Caprice is god of this world;  On his stony breast are fiis white wings furled.

Lipton to Build New Yacht and  Challenge With That or the  Shamrock.  From the Boston Herald.  At Glasgow recently Sir Thomas Lip-  ton has reiterated what he told me before of his decision, to send two yat.chs  over to Sandy Hook, and that boih Fife  and Watson will join them in America.  Since my cable of a few daj's ago Sir  Thomas has been in communication with  Fife, and a greater overhaul of the Shamrock will be made than was first mentioned, for Sir Thomas has within a  week told Fife to make such alterations  on the Shamrock as will best improve  her, and she will have longer ends, besides new forebody, and.such other alterations as find'favor, with Fife.  When I saw Sir Thomas Lipton in  London he was more than usually lott  to discuss his proposal to renew tbe challenge, or say anything which might be  construed into a desire to push forward,  a sporting challenge while his countrymen were intent upon the life and death-  struggle which is taking place in South  Africa.  When this point had been made clear  he  became  more communicative,  and it  was* apparent that he was as keenly in  forested as ever in the contest, and mor  than ever determined to cany it through  until he had either won the" cup or e.\  hausted'.every possible'chance of doin-.  so. ,  *'I donVniind admitting now," ho said  "that in my first challenge lor the cfup i  took   on   hand   a   job  'nmcn   bigger  an-,  much   more   difueii-t   ihati   i   ai-Ucii-atei.

"As ihe winning oi the cup is an hon  or to which every British yachtemai.  might be expectcu to aspire, 1 .determin  ed to sink my own desire, and to stanu  aside to see* if any one else was desirous of entering the contest. No one  came forward, and I then proceeded to  tuihl the promise I made on the day that  the Shamrock was finally defeated, to  bring back another yacht carrying another challenge.  "I was rather in a difficulty in tin  matter of selecting a designer, for I am  perfectly conscious of how' serious a  handicap it was to Mr. Fire to be laid  up at the most critical stage of the racing. Still, when thinking it over, I had  the assurance of Mr. Fife that the Shamrock was the best yacht he could possibly turn out. I make no claim to be  able to follow the intricacies of design  or to compare one hull with another, but  viewing the matter from a common sense  Wusinet-s,standpoint, it seemed to me that  we must be prepared to beat the Shamrock handsomely before we could have  a chance of beating either the Columbia  or a new defender likely to be a mort  formidable opponent even than the. In  view of these facts, therefore, I decided  to ask Air. eGorge L. Watson to accept  a commission to design a challenger, auo  I am.happy to say that Mr. Watson has  agreed.  ''Another matter which influenced me  in this decision was that Mr. Fife ha--  not yet lost confidence in the Shamrock.  He admits that she was fairly beaten,  but he thinks there is far better sailing  in her than she has yet shown, and he is  experimenting just now with a view of  ascertaining how she might be altered  with advantage. Ht shall have absolute  carte blanche as to expense or anything  else to enable him to improve the Shamrock as much as possible, and I shall be  very glad, indeed, if he succeeds in improving her to any great extent.  "With the Shamrock improved in every  possible way���������even to the extent of practically remodelling the hull, and the best  boat that Watson can produce, I think  I can count safely this time on being  able to lay hands on the fastest boat  that can be produced in Britain. I am  determined to have at least the satisfaction of knowing that I have done everything it was possible to do to deserve  success."  Questioned   as   to   whether   there  was  any particular change he was likely- to  make in his plan of campaign :.������ compared with that followed iu the last contest.  &u- 1 humus said that'I".i:'. l-'ile's 'Imos.-  was undoubtedly against, the Shamrock's  chance of success, he thought the chiei  mistake, was that the yacht was brought  to the start of "'the races without being  properly tried. This would be well  'guarded against on the next occasion.  '���������The Shamrock and the new yacht,"  he continued, "/will be raced in fair and  square contest, and if it should so hap-  . yen that the Shamrock can be so altered as to make her able to beat the newer boat, I should have little hesitation in  employing her. Naturally I shall have  much mo;e pleasure and more confidence  .f- my newer boat can beat the Shamrock���������even' the improved SkamrocK���������as  handsomely as she was* beaten by the  Columbia."  "Has anything' been settled yet as to  .he biuld or construction of the new  )oat?'  Will she be'of metal?"  '."Seeing that it has  been  proved,  apparently beyond doubt, that a metal hu.i  ���������an be constructed equally  strong as  a  ���������voodeu  one, and yet save  a  large per-  jentage of the total weight, it seems ,to  ue  beyond  doubt  that   the   hull  of  the  lew yacht will  be metal  sheathed.    In  .aying this, however, I speak as'a rank  ���������.utsider,   with  no  particular   kuowlouge  -f what will be-used.;; This is a matter  ���������ntirely for Mr. Watson.    My coi-icern is  lb see that he is* not cribbed hi any waj .  uroiigh questions of expense.    Mr. Fife  ..id   absolute   freedom   to t spend   what-  jver.he thought necessary to produce the  astest,. yacht that could be 'turned out,  ind Mr. Watson will"work tinder exactly  .he 'same conditions.     '  "So far as the choice of builders goes,  I am equally in the dark, although, look-  ng to Air. Watson's .faith in the Scot-  .sh firms and his belief in the advant-  ,ge  of' having a  boat  constantly  under  he designer's eye during construction. I  ���������ho'uld think it extremely likely that the'  vacht will be built on the Clyde.    I had  .���������very possible iensonto be satisfied with  he   work   of   Alessrs.   Thorneycroft   in  uild'ng the Shannock, but this :s a mater for the designer, and it is needless to'  ay Ait*.  Watson will  work with an ab-  olutely free. hand.       , ,    -  "In   any   case,   nothing   will   be   done  -,-ith the actual work untilthe challeng������  ias  hten formally lodged  and  accepted,  nd all the conditions settled.    I hope to  ave this done in July or August of this  ear.    if  we had any intention  of leav-  ,.ig it to the test races to. decide whether  he  Shamrock ,or  the new,yacht should  ..riy .the"challenge we would, of course.  ���������o  under  the nen-bshy  of asking a *cou-  ���������vision   from   our   American   friends   to  AeeL this,  biu  i scarcelyijLhink ii likely  hat   we .shall have siu-h 'serious doubts  '.   the probable ability  of .the   tu-w boat  ...  to induce us to take this stop."

Sh-o saw no  more the traces of Gi'-sipation. Even  the queer d'isrepair of his attire no  "longvr distur-bed her. He was her h-ero  still, and with all the passionate loyalty of -her nature ?'\e clung- to him  the more because he i.eeded h-er. Like  all strong and capablo women, she ,did  not regard her own qualitic-H as essential to lovablen-ass in a man. It was  not his character she lovf-d, but it was  himself, with all his weakness and'imperfections, all of which borrowed a  tinge of the charm belonging to everything tha-t pertained to him. She f-slt  when she rejoined Hattie in the street  as if all that made life bright and dear,  had been restored to h-er. She half  wondered at her own gladness, for tbat  which sho had seen had scarcely been  cheering. As she walked along briskly  at Hat tie's side' sine felt so'absurdly  light-hearted 'that  sCie grew  commu.ii-  cile, and the selection of a clergyman.  Hattie 're-commended Dr. Trump because he had much influence to get i-ei  a position as chief soprano m a churc.  choir. 'Although Hulda would have preferred a clerr-vman of her own fait.n  and national'ty, she yielded to her  'friend's persuasion, particularly assnt  .feared that "a Norwegian ��������� mmistGi  might object to .performing the ^'(-'  mony without her parents' consem, ai.ai  m/-g-ht even, 'from conscientious motives,,  communicate with .her father or dclive.  her into the hands of-her pursu-ar.  a   CHAPTED XXII. 0  The wedding took place i>n the parlour of tl:e Y. M. C."A. boarding-house  and proved the most exciting event  that that dismal apartment -had ever  witnessed. As it -was an evening.affair. al1 the girls'were present. Ineir  collective enthusiasm charged tne at-  mosohere with a vague  thrill of, agita  tion. There was a sensible thrcb in  the air as I-I-uld'a entered on the bridegroom's arm, for there was'not one to  give her away. Though she' was plainly, dressed, a long-drawn ah-h-h of admiration rose from all -parts of the  room. The remarkable circumstances  attending the affair had, with various  -distortions, been surmised by all, and  a few authentic facts had' b'een supplied, by the matron.  The bridegroom h-cld himself smartly  erect, 'and looked very happy. There  was a lig-'nt bravado on his ,������ace, and  his interesting pallor gave, him an air  of distinction corresponding well with  the romantic fictions of which he had  been mad-e the here. He 'had managed,  by h-is gift of persuasion -to get credit  for a new wedding-,'suit from a trustful Norwegian tailor, and he wore it  with the beatitiful indifference of one  to whom good clothes are a matter of  course. The transformation he had undergone since Hu'lda's visit in Hal-  stead street was so startling that even  she, to whom ho seemed but to'hav-e  been restored to his old self, could not  help marvelling at its completeness,  for, truth to tell, in spite of his gentlemanly u-naggressiveness there was  .something in his bearing which suggested the quiet insolence of prosperity.  Just as the. Rev. Dr. Trump ������������������ began  with a rotund and sonorous voice to  read the service the doorbell rang in  the hall, and H.v.lda gave, a little start,  -as if the bell wire had. been attached to  her person. The maid whose duty it  was to answer the bell was standing on  tiptoe on the outskirts of the crowd,  ���������and she was too interested in watching  the ceremony to have any pity on the  ���������sojourner or/the .front steps. The rain  was beating- against tho window panes,  and there were spasmodic roars in the  -chimney, whiicli ' added" to the imprcs-  ���������siveness of the solemn words :���������" In.the  sweat of thy brew shalt thou eat bread,  ���������and thy desire shall be for thy husband,  <and he shall rule over thee. . . With  sorrow shalt thou bear thy children.. :  Thou shalt be subject unto thy husband,"  etc. ;   ���������  Dr. Trump'was'of" the old-fashioned  kind of clergyman, who would scorn to  emasculate '��������� the service in order 'to  spare the sensibilities of the bride. No.  there it. was. in all its uncompromising  nakedness���������the stem, divine command  ���������and Hulda listened to it meekly, de-  1 v.dutly, and in no modern spirit of rebellion. Nay, in her loving self-effacement she-gloried even in its noble austerity, and vowed to bo faithful, ever  faithful, in good ancl evil days, to the  promise of this hcur.  The wind in the chimney gave a  bowling shriek, and (he maid, who was  breathlessly intent upon the ceremony,  failed to hear ike second ringing of the  doorbell. But Hulda heard it, and a  strange li������-ht of apprehension kindled  in her eyes. There was something  ominous���������fateful���������in the sound of it.  A tremulous shiver stole over her,  v>hich she could not master.  " If   anyone   here  present  knows    of  any reason why this man and this woman   should   not   be  wedded,    let   him  speak now, or forever hold his peace,"  cried the clergyman, and he paused impressively,   as  if  to  give  any  objector  due time to consider.   In the pause th?  doorbell  rang for the  third time,  and  .   everyone in the room except Dr. Trunin  ���������felt a nervous shock and looked, some  with annoyance and some with anxiety,*  toward   the  door,   which   the  maid had'  ���������gone to open.  "Then I pronounce you man and wife.  "What God hath joined together hrt no  man put asunder."  Before the words were out of his  mouth a loud, anxious voice  was heard in the ��������� ��������� hall, enquiring for Hulda. She did not start  this time, but a flush of excitement  sprang to her cheeks, a glow of resolution burned in her eyes, and a sigh  of infinite relief escaped from her  bosom as the last syllable of the fateful  formula was spoken.' And at that very  instant a strange-looking man, with a  haggard face, and dripping wet, was  pushing his way through the throng.  As she turned about with her husband  to receive the congratulations of the  girls, his were the eves she met.  " Oh, Hulda," he cried in Norwegian,  with a voice that shook with emotion,  " I have found you at last. '  "No, Mr. Falck; you have lost meat  last," she replied, sternly. " I am married to Mr. Brun."  He stood staring in a bewildered way.  as if he did not quite comprehend -what  she was saying.  " Married ?" he repeated; with a gasping, breathless staccato. " And to this  man ?"  " Yos. And ple-a'se, Mr. Falck, do not  trouble, me.:   It is quite useless.'-'  '��������� I have your father's command to  bring you back."     ,   .  " I am sorry to disobey ��������� him, but I  shall  stay with my husband."  The company needed no explanation  as to who this importunate visitor  might be.- Only a discarded lover would  have disregarded appearance to the.ex-  lent of risking such a scene. In the  grey, eventless blank of their lives, so  stirring on incident, so fraught with romantic sentiment, simply thrilled the  girls to the, marrow of their,bones.1. They  seized upon it with hungry , avidity;  they gloated over it, and stowed it  away for endless discussion in the long,  empty evenings to come. Though they  admired Hulda .and thought her husband " stunning." they yet could not  suppress a sneaking, fantastic sympathy with the .unhappy, suitor in his  cruel dilemma. Some there were, too,  who secretly wished that he might turn  to them for consolation.  Falck, oblivious to all except Hulda,  was quite unaware of the sentiments  he aroused in the bosoms'of these sympathetic virgins. When the irrevo-  cableness-of his loss dawned upon  him���������for' until this , moment he had  been buoyed up by an absurd hope���������  it grew black before his eyes; the  floor seemed to surge under his feet,  and he did not dare to take a stop to  the right or Io the left for fear of  falling., It was the bridegroom's ironical smile which recalled him- to his  senses. With a mighty effort he pulled himself together and stepped aside  while the eager congratulato'rs pressed forward.  " Who is this gentleman ?" enquired  Dr. Trump, as he fixed an enquiring  glance upon the intruder.  tl' " It is the gentleman whom my parents wished me to marry," Hulda answered, with ' the steadiest voice at  her ��������� command. * She had not really  seer. Falck with' any clear realization  of his aope'arance until this moment.  In her agitation all things had swum  before her vision in a luminous mist.  But now the severity died out of her  eyes, **and a light of compassion was  kindled instead, for every lineament  of his face was a record of suffering.  His eye pits were sunken and strangely discoloured, his cheeks iioliow, and  there was- a drawn, strained -look about  his mouth. So gaunt was he,* so wasted by sorrow and exertion, that every  bone in his anatomy became unpleasantly suggestive. He stood for awhile  staring vacantly about the .room, studiously refraining from looking at ,her,  feeling how direfully conspicuous he  was, and yet not knowing how to obliterate himself. Then the .thought  flashed through his brain that his  presence must be embarrassing to .her,  nay, even painful, and he marvelled at  his stupidity in not having thought of  it before.. Slowly therefore" and cautiously he began sidling toward the  door, and managed to slip out, as he  fancied, uhperceived. He was glad to  get out into the large, compassionate  night, to feel the dusk close about him  and encompass him, to set his face  against the storm .and have some phy-  MISSIONARY EFFORT,  BISHOP   RIDLEY   HAS   GIVEN     MANY  YEARS OF HIS LIFE TO IT-  Ho VTiU Address tlie Kcam������nicsil Conference oii Koieiyrn Missions to Be  Held in aS'ew York, -April 3i to May 1  -The IJritish Columbia"'-'  Kxperieiice  in Held   t.������B������ V<;ry  Valualbl.e.  There will be no more striking figure than William Kidley, bishop oi  Caledonia," British Columbia, at the  ecumenical conference on foreign missions to be' held in New York on  April 21 to May 1.  One"of the few regions'of the world  still closed to missionary effort within its borders is still practically impossible, but considerable work is  done among the surrounding peoples  by missionaries, chiefly of the Church  Missionary Society of England. Some  of these missionaries have done notable work, and among them is Bishop  Kidley. He was sent into India in  1S66; working on the confines of the  Ameer's domain, and had his missionary training in that most difficult  jicld. A' few years later, however, his  health obliged him to leave India,  and he was appointed chaplain to the  British church at Dresden', Saxony,  where he remained two .years. After  this he occupied parishes in England  a few years. In 1S79 . he was* appointed the first bishop of Caledonia,  British Columbia, bringing to his  work there the fruits of his experience in his previous fields, and now  for over 20 years he lias- administered  the affairs of that diocese with singular ability.  Bishop  Ridley  is well  known  as  a  scholar, .and      his     contributions  ���������to  cnurch    members     of    'communicants  mount up to 3-10.000.

Opiates Hasten the  Decay of the Nerve Cells���������  Dr. Chase's  Nerve  Food  Restores and  Revitalizes Wasted Nerves. .  Your physician will tell you that- morphine, cocaine and other opiates induce  sleep and rest only by deadening the nerves,  that such relief is only temporary, and that  the use of such drugs actually hastens the  decay of the nerve cells.  The nerves must not be trifled with. No  one can afford to waste nervous energy, the  vita'l force of the body. No one can afford  to neglect diseased nerves until overcome by  nervous prostration, paralysis, epilepsy, or  insanity.  It is next to impossible to estimate the  effect of disordered nerves on the organs of  the body. The whole machinery of circulation, respiration and digestion can only be  properly carried on when force is supplied  by the nerves.  Starved, exhausted nerves cause paiss such  as headache, neuralgia, sciatic rheumatism,  backache and aching limbs.  The beginnings of nerve disorders are usually sleeplessness, irritability, loss of ecergy  and appet;ie. a twitching of the muscles,  tirtd brain and depressed spirits.  When you can't sleep at nights and toss in  misery longing for daybreak to come, do not  yield to the temptation to use morphine,  cocaine or other opiates.   They only hasten  decay.  Let reason ' rule.   Get right down to the v  foundation of the trouble and build up the  system by using Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.  This great restorative is in pill form and  contains "the very elements of nature which  go to form new red corpuscles in the blood  and ereate new nerve cells.  It is worth while to rememb?r that Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food is not a patent medicine, but the greatest prescription of Dr.  A. W. Chase, author of the famous receipt  book.  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is an up-to-date,  scientific preparation, which has proven itself  to be specific for all nervous diseases. It  cannot fail, if used persistently, because it  actually rebuilds and revitalizes the wasted  nerves. It is especially recommended for  illo pecu'iiar to women, because they almost  invariably arise from enhausted nerves.

Eulenberg asked to be allowed to examine this key. the handle of which represented a miniature dolphin, and he sa'd^  it was gold and the vyi'n rubies. During  his katzen jammer the owner denied the  whole- thing. This man's name was1  Busch. It wt<s iri-his apartments that  the singing was heard on the night of ihe  duel.

OLD CANDLESTICKS.  of lighting. Candles and lamps, however, now hold a position assured by;  fashion; if not necessity. Good,Housekeeping, in illustrating some" of their  many forms, says: Y  Candlesticks are surely "a survival'  of the fittest," for, aside from any conY  sideration  of fashion, good ones give'  to. a room an attractive,  homelike air-  that can be obtained in no other way.*  In the recent revival- of colonial archi-,  tecture  and   furnishings' candlesticks  have won due appreciation.    Graceful  outline and simple," refined ornaments  are their distinguishing characteristics.'  A  few specimens  of old  colonial designs are  here  shown,  together .with  some "handled" ones*from the'south. .  * Quaint and lu'ghly decorative in some*  situations, usually an jnglenook or corner, are the large candlesticks made in  Russia that can'occasionally be picked  up in secondhand shops or at'fashion-'  able dealers' in decorative goods.   The-"*  candlesticks arranged for two .or more'  lights are usually of French design and  .profusely ornamented and are suited to  large rooms or the dining table.    Glass  candlesticks  are   fragile,   porcelain   is  better,  but brass aud silver are more,  desirable than either.  Tall sticks  without handles are in-.  tended as fittings to a mantel or sideboard and  handled  ones for bedroom-  use, but in this, as' in ever}' other dis-,  tinotive  feature  of  house  furnishing,,  the best results are only secured when  the  minor  rules  of art are made  to  meet the special needs of every room.  The   difficulty   of   obtaining   really  good lamps at moderate cost and tho  low price of artistic vases and jars suggested  the  happy  idea of  having the  latter converted into lamps, and aside  from   their   intrinsic   merit   one   feels"  such a delightful sense of ownership in  -   *-   .. t "���������  .i-  i  v  .*���������'  v  "    '- *      T  ���������Y-:$i|  *' fy.^-Cm  ."<-**-"*Nr������  ,, i";-- <���������.,'/)-���������;  ' -��������� *-���������  .  m  STAGE GLINTS.  night.  ;���������;.'.

'  POPULAR LAMPS.  a lamp thus made that tlie practice is  fast gaining iu favor. Any large dealer  in lamps will fit an oil reservoir and  burner neatly into a vase or jar. Care  should be taken to secure a vase with  a large base that rests firmly on the  table, as iu Fig. l. If preferred, one  with a small base may be effectively  fitted into an, iron-or brass frame, as  in, Fig.. 2.  Many kinds of porcelain and metal  vases can be utilized for this purpose  and any desired color effect obtained.  Japanese jars of various kinds 'give  highly artistic effects.  Glass globes now come in varied artistic, shapes and styles. Most beautiful, as well as expensive, ones are  made in glass of uniquely mingled colors. Leaded glass is often used. Globes  come in both simple and fanciful  shapes, in plain, frosted and decorated  effects and in solid opalescent colors.  Those with panels bound with metal  beading are perfect when rich effects  are desired.  tr THE UUM.u&ax~.a.n.l/ iMii\������'a  ISSUED EVERY   TUESDAY.  [WSL, 33. BnDerson, JBpitor.
