In fact they did not.  require as wide a walk up there as"  in other parts of the town. The  reason why Mr Pullen wanted,his  name off the petition was that he  had five maple trees about 6ft. from  the fence and he would have to re-  move these.  Aid.

A shooting party1 is generally    organized, _o as soon as the King    can.  dispose of his correspondence, all 'the  gentlemen ,of the party start off    for  the preserves, the ladies of the family generally arranging to meet_*them  a, little later in the' morning.       This  shoot is* generally, the biggest of the  "year,  and the day being  always   observed as a general holiday    on    the  estate,  every inhabitant, of each village gets up with the resolute determination- of putting in an appearance  at the 'event.    The shooting    of   the  Avenue, then,, which is a fixture    for  -the King's Birthday, ' is   exceedingly  well  attended,  the villages   being almost entirely deserted.     The  extremely- picturesque,     the      bright  i colors  worn by the beaters standing  out in vivid relief against the green  ~' of the  pines and  the  velvety      turf,  and the red sand of the intervening,  roads and paths.    Big bags are     the  rule,   the villagers participating  later, in tho  day'in the share     of    the  "contents.  "-'  ��������� The'luncheon hour finds the royal  family and the 'numerous guests assembled, but no one lingers over ,the  meal,'for all"the employes of the estate have a special dinner provided  for them- in the riding school, and  the-King, Queen and family make an  invariable '% custom of being present  for a short time. The tables literal-  )y groan . beneath their weight of  good things,' and the gatherings are  delightfully hearty, the King entering into the.spirit of the thing with  the utmost good nature, listening attentively , to the formal speech by  the principal employe, or to occasional shyly offered individual congratulations. His Majesty's health  is drunk with a three times three;  and, if anyone ever doub.ted" the  shouting capacities of a group "of  Englishmen, he would speedily, have  such doubts set at rest were he to be  present at the King's Norfolk birth-'  day dirpaer."\-J      ���������  In the afternoon the women and  children are regaled, a festival tea  being arranged on* their behalf; and,  if the King does.not,find time to-be'  present at :this,: the Queen and her  daughters do, and they may be generally seen in the vicinity .of the  children's tables,, looking after their  particular pleasures and requirements. His Majesty has a. busy day,  but whatever part of hisxusiial routine he is compelled to forego, rest  assured ; that ah inspection of the  stables and kennels is never omitted,  for.the'King is. a.genuine animal lover and - has ��������� a. thorough practical  knowledge of horses and dogs. These  are housed to,perfection, and not the  slightest detail of mismanagement  escapes the King's keen eye    in    his  dailj" perambulations.  There is a merry meeting in the  saloon for afternoon tea, and all who  have not joined the family, luncheon  party now put in "an appearance.

The people, saw Him and knew  Him and .were filled with wonder -and-  amazement. ��������� So on the _ay"-f~Pentecost  they-/were all amazed and marveled  (chapter ii, 7��������� 12). The change in this  man was so manifest and unmistakable  that it could not be denied (iv, 1G),' yet  the authorities would, if they could, stop  all such doings. A lady whom I know,  Avhose eyes were miraculously healed after all the doctors had' failed to help, put  the story in tract form, and a doctor who  read it told her she was doing wrong, a.  others might think they could have a  similar experience. - What are we on  earth for if not that the works of God  may be seen in us.   (John is, 3.)  11., "The lame man which was healed  held 'Peter and John." The healed man  naturally clung to hfs deliverers, and the  crowd ran to see the healed and the healers. There is so little power of God in  the church today that the crowd has to  be drawn by entertainments, suppers,  concerts, etc.; but let some of the power  that was seen on this occasion be again  manifested, and the things which now  disgrace the church might speedily vanish. This man's help came through Peter  and John, and he clung to his visible deliverers.', When we learn to say sincerely, "My help cometh from the Lord, who  made heaven and earth,'' we will no  longer look to the hills for help (Ps. exxi,,  1, 2, margin, and Jer. iii, 23).     -' ��������� _  12.

As soon as the instrument is willing to be magnified tho  power ceases. Concerning Pharaoh's  dream, Joseph said that it was not in  him to interpret it, but that God would  do it, and Daniel said that there was uo  wisdom in him more than in others, but  that the God in heaven, who revealcth  secrets, would make known the dream  (Gcn.-xli. 10; Dan. ii, 2_-:;0).  13-10.

As  oii the day of;.Penteco.stv he told them,  ,tha.t;Jesu.s, whom they had crucified, had  by*0od( been raised from the dead-and'  recoivod'.up into heaven, so now lie again  tells- them ..that -the God of Abraham.  Isaac and 'Jacob had glorified llis Son  Jesus', having raised Him from tin* dead,  and that" the perfect .soundness of this  man who had been lame was due wholly  to the risen Christ, whose witnesses they  wore.. We do not know that the man  had any faith in Christ, but Peter and  John had, and as the faith of the woman  of Tyre and Sidon brought'health to her  daughter and the faith of the centurion  brought health to .his servant (Matt, viii,  10, 13; x.v, 28), so their faith brought  health to this man. Who can tell the  possibilities of faith in God, and what do  M-e know of the faith of the Son of God?  (Mark xi. 22-24; Gal. ii, .20.) As Mephib-  osheth was lame through no fault of his  own, yet was made to live with the king  and eat continually at the king's table  (II Sam. iv, 4; ix, 13), so we who are  all lame through Adam's sin. without  strength, ungodly, may be healed by Hira  who, having died for us, is now alive for-  ' __���������   Coolc'���������   Cannonade   f    i  The first thing that strikes a lands-  man   on   a   man-of-war   is   the ,rigidi  discipline   observed   everywhere.

Well,  '    | may be you wouldn't have "done it; but  '��������� don't be too sure till you've heard enough  j toJ be able to "put yourself in his place.,"  Imagine    a    young   husband of   six  ,  j months' standing, ardent, fond and trust-  ' j ing, casually entering his wife's dress-  '    i ing-room in her absence, and stumbling  '    .! on a mischievious-looking, rose-colored  ! note,-freshly opened, a cupid in every  : crease, and a lurking lock of another's  hair���������red���������peeping   stealthily from its  folds!  '  ' , The very -paper blushed guiltily  as  * Gus, caught it up.,  Eagerly and wildly  ,   '      his eyes ran over the contents.    For a  moment he" stood amazed" and metion-  less, 'and then broke out���������. But we've  promised - to skin that. Perhaps any  i other- man would" have given utterance1  ' to a?, "much, reading such a missive as  this, addressed to his wife:  . ���������" Affinity, Aug. ��������� th, 18���������,  "Dearest Katk :���������How  could you go and  marry that  great liulkv   fellow  behind  my  '    '     bac-.k, ami without a word  of notice ?     _  "Though I've returned too late to forbid tho  bans, I'm still in time to giv.'tiia. lord and  master of vours a hint���������which I mean to do���������  ,    that an older love than his won't quietly suffer  another to monooolizo its rights. .  * "Expect me by Monday, and keep a kiss for  '���������'Your ever affectionate      Sam Smith."   _  Smith! Smith'.'Sam  Smith!   .Faugh!  What a name!' Had   it   been .Brown,  '   Jones or Robinson, "there might have  been some bearing it.    But Smith! And  red-headed, too!    "Frailty, thy name is  woman!"   Yet it might bo that Smith  -",������'   ,   was some presuming puppy, whose vile  *   ���������     epistle was the sheer result of his own  '  '     impudence. ' But   no;   tne .wife    that  . "r~    could receive such a communication and  *    conceal it from her husband -could not  v      be else than false.  Smith's heart's   blood   was the very  ''   , least atonement the case admitted of.  "   HadfGus been more collected, he might  probably have bided,his time and .taken  his peace-destroyer, una wares and then  "tripped him,"   .rusting to an   intelii  i      \gent jury'and proof of a mental alibi to  bring him  out   all right.    But he was  not sufficiently rational for that, and so  adopted the foolish plan <of summoning  Smith to mortal coinbat.  Gus had a friend,   Captain ' Borax,   a.,  Tetired quartermaster,thoroughly versed.  ��������� in points of .honor. The captain was  just the man for the emergency'; but, as  ill luck would have it, he '-was., out of  town for the day.   '  v   That no time might be  lost,   Gus-demanded satisfaction by mail,   dr.eehr--  '     his 'challenge ,to the address indicated in  tne caption olTSniith's note, and uxiug  a time and place at which his friend,,  Captain   Borax,-would   be prenared to.  , ~ ,     confer with any friend of Smith's.    At.  -',  , the same time a brief message  to Mrs.  ���������*-> '  - Gurley explained .that important business necessitated'her husband's absence  for   the. next   tew   days.    Meanwhile.  Gus took up   quarters   at   an obscure  ,    country inn,  leaving everything to the  management of the captain,   whom he  . had succeeded   in finding at last, and  j who, proud to be .ought for such a ser-  ���������    j vice, promptly repaired to the appointed  i rendezvous, where   he  was punctually  j met by a friend   of   Smith's.    The  pre-  i liminaries were speedily settled, and a  I meeting was arranged for the following  i morning. -  '  As the time drew near, Gus grew ner-  i vous.    The fact is, Smith's alacrity had  .1 taken him a little" aback.    He   had felt  : quite   confident, that     that   miscreant  would   shrink   from   encountering the  man whose-honor he had outraged.   But  instead,   without   turning" the   word,  Smith's second had chosen pistols, and  named ten paces as the distance! It was  1     plain the wretch was as bloodthirsty as  unscrupulous.     Besides,   Gus was   no  shot, which Smith,   judging   from  his  choice of.weaporis, no doubt was.    How  much better,   Gus began  to think   to  have fled forever from the scene of his  unhappiness," or to have invoked the be-  niirn aid of the laws of South Dakota  But it was too late now to retract.  From a troubled slumber, such as condemned criminals are apt to fall into in  f the last hours .of their last night, Gus  was startled by a sensation as of a bullet piercing his thorax. It was only  Captain Borax poking him in the- ribs,  by way of reminder that his "hour had  almost come!"  In a brief space���������how very brief it  seemed���������they were on the fatal field.  At nearly the same instant a close carriage drove up,  containing the enemy's  party. _    -i    ���������" __  Smith's second sprang out, closing the  door behind him. He took Captain  Borax aside, and the two held a hasty  consultation; which over, the ground  measured, pistols loaded, positions allotted, and everything in readiness, it only  remained to place the men and give the  word. _'_���������_-,    -i _  The combatants were to stand back to  .  back, and, at a signal, to wheel and fire.  Gus had already taken his place, and was  struggling,   manfully   but   doubtfully,-  against      an     inclination,      will-nigh  irresistible,     to    leap    over   an     adjacent hedge,   and   run   as   fast  and  ifar as his legs  could carry him,   when  !.an exclamation from the captain caused  fhim to turn his head.  j     -'In Heaven's name, who's that?" said  ������������������ Captain Borax,  accosting   the   fellow-  - second, in the act of conducting a young  i and beautiful lady to the very spot designed for Smith. .        ���������  ��������� " My principal, gentlemen, Miss Sam-  ���������antha Smith���������'Sam Smith,' as she's  : called for short.' the other answered.  ��������� Gus saw it all. Flinging down the  i pistol, he  rushed forward,  and would  ��������� certainly have hugged and kissed " Sam  ��������� Smith.'' without ceremony, if her sec-  '��������� ond���������no other than her  affianced lover  j hadn't looked like a chap that would  . stand no nonsense. As it was. no man  ���������was ever equally pleased by the dis-  : covery that he had made an ass of him-  The lock of hair was the only puzzle  unexplained, and " Sam " ..soon cleared  that up. It was one of Guy's own, given  loner  before  to  Kate   as  a  souvenir.

As it was, I led to bis breaking  liis arm, cutting bis face very badly* and  spoiling bis clotbes. It is a horrid confession to have to make, but I want to ease  my conscience by setting it down.  One night I was sitting in my little  room in tbe dull littlo provincial town of  ���������Cbur'chly. I was thinking what a dull  little provincial town it was. And yet, I  mused philosophically, I suppose all the  hiiman.iuteroMs of. the big world can be  found in Churchly and all tho different  types of human character if one will only  go through the boredom of looking for  them, when they are on such a very .mall  scale. Talk of romance, why there is  poor Watts!  At that moment Watts came in. He  often visited me of an evening. 'If was  not so much that he wanted to see me and  to hear my sentiments, but I was almost  the only person who would sit patiently  by while he aired his two pet'subjects���������  to wit, butterflies and Molly Garton.  And  Warts wasn't such a  bad fellow  either./ He had all the makings of a lino  man.  I  used to think, ������but unfortunately,  he. was the only  son of a silly  mother.  And so she had never sent him to school  to be kicked' by the horrid, rough  boys,  but had kept him at-home with a tutor,  who wore spectacles, and had got into the  habit of eternally catching butterflies and  ,   -   ,   .-.moths and  things-and  killing them and  "putting their little corpses in boxes with  ~?'-      'their wings stretched out.    If lie had done  it in moderation, one would have excused  him.    But he didn't. r'IIe simply lived for  "^       '' it and  for Molly Garton.    And the two  things were incompatible.  As for Molly herself, Irhad my  ideas  -    r i ���������*   about her.   She was my sister-in-law, and  we had been friends from the days when  ��������� ,"r>e,,nad bowled our hoops together in the  High street (much to the annoyance-of  wayfarers)   right   down  to  the  time  of  'which I am speaking, when we had many  a ride'and game of hockey in each1 other's  company."    So I' flattered myself I knew  v   something   of   that   erratic   and   athletic  young lady's mind, and I had come to the  conclusion, first, if Watts would cease to  be quite such an ass he would make her  an excellent husband, and,-secondly, that,  *   given   that   change   in   disposition,   she  . '  would not be unwilling to recognize him  ' in that capacity.  . Butterfly hunting was ,not, to the fore  ,   '        '"with Watts tonight. -It seemed that that  .,.day the lady had rejected him for the second vtime.   ,  Whereon,   seated < upon' my   chair,   he  ,    s made much moan.      ,"        ,    , ���������      /  v,,      '   'T didn't think you had ' the' remotest  1   -       'chance,",I said, when he had Gnished-his  narrative."'He looked at me blankly."  v    "Unless," I proceeded,  "you make up  your mind to do several things."  , c ��������� "What-? - What ?" he said eagerly. "  ' ."First," I replied, folding my hands in  philosophic calm, "never to talk of beetles  ( and bugs for a whole six months, never  to let yourself be seen with that long net  , ' of yours in your hand, never to show a  1    .,     soul those little creatures you have stuck  pins through."  He gasped, but yas silent.  "Secondly," I proceeded, "you must become an athlete."   -    ���������  "I!   An athlete!" he exclaimed.   '������  ������������������'You must play football," I said,'"and  be careful to get your shins ,well hacked."  He gasped again.  "And in summer time," I proceeded,"'I  think it will be well for you to join the  cricket club."  "Impossible!" he murmured.  "It w;ould be desirable also,"* I went on,  paying no attention to the interruptions  of the silly man, "if you became a hero.  Now, you might save a life from drown-  at <  ing."  "I can't swim," he muttered feebly.  "Then   you   must   learn   to   swim,"   I  shouted   with   a   sudden   emphasis   that  quite, quenched him for a time.    "And,  above all; you must learn to'cycle."  , "Oh-h!"  "Do you think." I said with much indignation, "that a well built," active girl  like Molly Garton wants to spend her life  sewing on the buttons of a wretched fellow who can only handle a butterfly net?"  He looked so miserable as I thundered  these words at him that I felt moved to  genuine sorrow for him. But I was cruel  only to be kind.  "Come now." I said in a gentler tone.  "I have known what love is"���������here 1  sighed and thought of my own clear Katie  Jying under the grass in the churchyard���������  ''and I know it's worth a good effort to  win a woman. Let me help you."  "How can you?" he said dismally.  "Tomorrow," ' I replied decisively, "we  start learning the bicycle in my back garden. On Saturdaythereisa.pick. up of the  Busy Bees, and you come with me to  have your shins hacked."*  He groaned,  but thanked me and  assented.' '*��������������������������� ;  Ah, what weeks they were, those succeeding weeks in which we toiled. Watts  and I together, to make him an athlete!  1 will say nothing of the football,' save  that he displayed really admirable pluck  iu the presence of his ladylove; fighting  with a ferocity that, called down the rebuke of the referee and covering himself  with stir-king plaster if not with actual  glory. But the bicycle! Oh, what weary  hours I spent in that garden of mine in  frantic endeavor to teach him to ride!  He seemed to hpve a positive genius for  doing tbe wrong thing. Time after time  I nearly despaired, and yet at last there  came a day when he actually wabbled the  whole length of tbe garden path without  any assistance and without a fall.  "Molly." I, about a fortnight after,  "who do'you'think is going to join our  bicycling party tomorrow?    Watts."  "Why, he can't ride," she answered.  "Oh. can't he!" said I.    "He can ride  likp anything.    He has been learning for  weeks."  ".Whatever  made  him   do  that?"   she  asked with the len<=t  little self conscious  change of expression.  "Wanted company. I suppose." I answered Jn my moi-t matter of fact voice.  "De's a great friend of mine you know.  <ind"-  She made a slight gesture of annoyance,  from which 1 gathered that 1 had haul the  wrong thing.  "You don't mind his coming, poor  chap?" I askpd. "He's getting so tired  of going.about alone." ' ,  "He can come if he likes." she said.  From   which,   being   a   philosopher,   1  gathered   that, she   wasvvery   pleased  be  was coming. , c<-*  And so next day Watts turned up with  his bicycle and a solecdid nair of new  knee breeches and some wonderful thick  stockings���������to cover his skinny calves.  We staited for our trip satisfactorily.  I lagged a little behind and 'watched the  fun. Watts, grasping his handles' with  immense firmness and gazing fixedly at  the road before himl plied his legs' with  great vigor in the effort to keep abreast of  Molly, who was iii a mischievous mood.  ' But at last came a catastrophe. There  was a point where the road .forded a tolerably, wide, shallow brook, while by the  side a couple of planks and a single handrail made -"a bridge for foot passengers.  Molly rode in front, and. giving a half  turn of,her head, which revealed to me a  broad smile and a twinkle of mischief in  her eyes." she went straight as an arrow  over the planks. 'I saw poor Watts hesitate for a1 moment. His,bicycle staggered.  Then, gathering himself up with a mighty  effort, he rode on'to the bridge. Then came  a crash, a plunge, a loud shriek from.Mol-  ly and in a moment "I was In the water  extiicating Watts from a confused mass  of spokes and handles and carrying,him  to the.side of the ford.' Poor chap! ' I am  bound to say. that he was very plucky.'  Lie only gave,, one groan, but he looked  ghastly pale. The blood-wasj__ning fast  from a .cut in his forehead, and I quickly  saw-that his arm was "seriously injured.  I called on Molly that evening, after I  had  left Watts, with  his head  bound  up,  and   his  arm   in   a   plaster.     She  looked  white  and   seemed   intensely  anxious  to  hear,news of him.  "I just dropped in." I said casually, "as  I thought you might like to know"���������' '  "How is he?    How is he?" she asked.  "Well, I think he will' pull through all  right,"  I  said  slowly,   "but it isxa  bad.  smash.    His arm is broken and his head  is horribly cut.    But he is, plucky about  it." ' ' ;        ���������     *  I saw her Up quiver: then., with feminine quickness, her manner changed.  "Whatever -made the poor, silly creature try'to cross that plank?" she asked  with a lightness that was really admirable.  I looked her, full in the face with a  blank expression.  "You know as well as I do." I said.  '' "No, I don't;, indeed I _don't." she ���������"answered with most impressive inaccuracy.  I explained at considerable length why  Watts had got his legs hacked at football  and why he had got his arm broken while  bicycling, and I .left her thoroughly miserable to think it all over. _'..   '  It was late in the afternoon before I  could get round to see the invalid next  day. I found him in marvelous spirits,  with a, quantity of beautiful, fresh cut  flowers-by his sofa. (  "Who sent these?" I,asked.  "Guess." he answered, a radiant smile  lighting up all that part of his face that  was not hid in bandages. So I guessed.  And every day during his convalescence  there were fresh cut flowers in his room,  and I had to guess who sent, them.  And then one day I overtook him as he  walked feebly down the street with his  arm in a sling. He told me he was thinking of dropping, in to tea at Western  Lodge/ Now, Western Lodge is where  Molly lived, and it was a very nice place.  So I asked suavely. "May I come too?"  "Oh, yes. of course, if you like," he replied in such.a dismal and disgusted tone  that I laughed and went away without  another word.  But as I sat in my chair that night,  thinking over things in general and [particularly meditating on the fact that, just  for want of a candid ftioud, a really fine  fellow may do nothing but catch insects  all his life, a little note was brought mo.  It ran thus:  I have caught my last butterfly. * Unique specimen. Priceless value. I had to chase it on a  bicycle. Dear old boy, how can I ever thank you  enough 1 Watts.    ,  ���������Fenny Pictorial Magazine.  being two yearlings, togetner,' and so suffered them to walk about the ground  where there were no pits or ditches for  them to receive hurt by. He also tied together the bushy parts of their tails, the  reason of which was because they should  not be able to turn their, heads to each  other; so as to strike, one another with  their horns, or by bending their necks too  much by endeavoring to face one another  and then striving break their necks."

There are a number of honey making  bees which apparently do not use their  stings or in which the stings are atrophied and too blunt to hurt. Some are  very small, so diminutive that they are  called mosquito bees. They gather quantities of honey, of which Bates, in one of  the forests ou tho Amazon, took two  quarts from oue of the nests. In Jamaica,  where some of these amiable boos nre also  found, tbey are called "angelitos," a name  given them by the original Spanish settlors in honor of their good temper.  Some Australian dwarf bees���������also "angelitos" so far as human beings are concerned���������do not use their slings, perhaps  because they are not sharp enough to  hurt, but deal with their enemies something after the manner of the. Quaker on  board ship who refused to use a gun,, but  threw the Frenchmen overboard/ An enemy is held down by several of the bees,  who gradually put him on the rack by  pulling his limbs out tight and keeping  them so for as long as an hour, by which  time the prisoner "dies a natural death."

There is probably no other subject in  the world about Avhich there has been so  much sentiment as home. The sweetest  poets have sung its delights; the finest  oratory has laid the fairest garlands upon  its altars. There is no fancy so dull it  does not picture a place where the weary  heart may find peace and rest*and where  love binds up the wounds the world has  dealt.    -  It is the ideal home of which every  man dreams'and in which every true woman hopes to reign some day as queen.  So far as the outward signs go, many  achieve their desire, but if "stone walls  do not a prison make or iron bars a  cage" still less does the mere possession  of a house' make a real home. It .may  be beautiful within and without, rich in  art treasure and costly bric-a-brac, yet  if consideration and forbearance and love  and patience do not furnish it it is as  lacking in the essential attributes of a  true home as the bare stones in the  street. i  "Shall I not take mine ease in  mine  inn?" asks bluff Sir John.    ."Shall I uot  take mine ease in mine own house?" we  _ ask.   "Shall I not^there be free from pry-  j ing eyes and at liberty to do even as it  pleases me?"  Only too many of us roughly translate  this to mean that we feel at perfect liberty to make our homes a dumping  ground for all our bad temper and irritability and the boorishness that we would  not dare to inflict on the outside world.  It is a strange aud very pathetic fact  that we give our best to strangers and  chance acquaintances and keep for our  nearest and dearest only what is left of  _ur brightness and amiability.

New   Cure, For  the  "Blues."      iv  Quite the newest prescription for relief  of that, form of nervousness known as  "the blues" is the simple direction to  smile. \- "Smile early and often.

"One of.the  greatest advantages of physical training  is the effect'it has upon the nerve system  and the* mental atmosphere that is so  closely dependent upon it. If thek blood  is, circulating vigorously, every muscle  firm and elastic and every heart beat  strong,and regular, there is not much to  fear from the blues. Even legitimate  causes for depression lose half their  weight when the body is kept in good  condition by judicious exercise. .  "The philosophy of the smile cure lies  in the fact that the body being the means  by which the mind expresses itself there  must be a certain co-ordination.* If the  body refuses to express the mental suggestion "of depression, the mind will  change its attitude and accept the body's  suggestion of joyousnjess.  "If, on the contrary, the physical admits the mental 'blueness,' the body in a  short time becomes languid, the head  feels dull and often aching, the blood  flows sluggishly, and actual sickness re-  The  YomiB .lur-juts.

His  left hand is stretched out toward the  statue of Washington, ou horseback,  which is near by.  This is the statue of Lafayette, the gallant Frenchman, whom the people of the  Revolutionary days delighted to name  "tho young marquis." llis real name  was Marie Jean Paul Roch Yves Gilbert  Moties, marquis de La Fayette.

(   * The  scenes, at Col.  Prior's "mealing on  ��������� the evening'of the Sih,* weie very'  deplorable.    An organised gang of  ' toughs managed';d get into the upper gallery'of the theatre and dis-  y Curbed the meeting from beginning  to end--with their  howls while'the  different'speakers were  addressing  /the large  audience'.     The theatre  was  so j densely  packed   that  the  police  were  unable* to-get'at the  - disturrers.'   The meeting supported  the railway policy of the Government  by a unanimous1 vote.     The  Premier and   his  colleagues   were  loudly   applaudrd     by   the   large  ���������  audience.    It is the intention of the  Government to  carry on' the busi���������  ,  ness of the country until it is completed.     The business of the much  more populous Province of Ontario  was ' carried ��������� on   successfully some  years since by a.majority of 2 or 3,  and there was no popular  out-cry  and   no injury done to that Province that we ever heard of. Messrs  Helm.ken   'and   McPhillips    who  were elected to support the present  Government  have greatly injured  themselves by joining the ranks of  the cliques in the House  who  are  greedy after a share , of  the plums  dimly seen as through a glass by  the deserting members for Victoria  city.     It will take some  time  to  finally complete the terms and conditions of the'railway agreement,  but  the draft   published   will   be  satisfactory to the public.  The contract will be closely scrutinized and  if   necessary   by   the  Government.  We think ihe Island  constituents  outside-of Victoria city are greatly  intere.-ted in. the construction of tie  Canadian Northern Railway.    The  cities, of.Nanaimo and Cumberland,  and   the  farmers - of  the  counties  should strengthen the hands of the  Government    by   holding    public  ���������meetings, and endorsing the railway  policy of Premier  Dunsmuir.    An  active political faction in Victoria  city must not be allowed, to speak  for the people of the whole Island.  We hope our Mayor "and Council  will  at, once .,take   steps   in   this  matter.      . ��������� ;      s  <v,  1.  DIBECT I'rpm the GROWER to the CONSUMEE  C. J.  MOORE. Sole Agent  lt j. basket iOoiAL.  A very Fuccfssful function under  the au** pices of  the True Bluef,  for  the:benefit of the Orphans Home at  Pic-on', Ontario,   was held, in   the  L'i dge-ronm    of   the   Society   last  Thuisday ���������_evening.     A short and  intertaining programme  of  songs,  addresses,. ��������� &c��������� '   was    first    gone  through. ' Tlien came  the sale  of  baskets*     Many of the Tries' had  brought Jthe'-e receptacles well filltd  with  substantials  and  dainties in  the'comestible line.   ,But ^ne pains.  that ,had been   taken to .etiibellisli  and decorate the exteriors showed  that the owners had the good of the  Order at heart, and- that-they vere  * . ,  possessed of rare good taste, as the  masses   of   artificial   flowers  \*ere  t  most ��������� naturally  madej    and    the"  styles of decorations in most -casea  very   artL-tic.     VV;e  were sorry to  observe  that the bidding was low,  and' slow.    'Whatever   is * coming .  over  the young fellows in this degenerate   age   is   hard   to  surmise.  There were baskets thete that gave  suggestions of owners for which we,,  in our 'way back young days, would  have  paid  every shiner   we -could  rake and scrape together  by hook -  or by crook.    Cumberland boys will-,  have to get a good move oii/or- run  the  risk of being* branded as the'  slowest on the earth.    After the sale  the  entire'con'p^ny adjourned', to  the'Union Hotel where supper was  ^provided   by  Mrs* Davi-,* and   the  b.iskets'weie opened, and par.aken  of.    Then hack to the hail,-where a  fe ^ .songs, tfec'/were sung and games  w re indulged in until  the hour   of  parting arrived in the small hours.  It was during this part of the evening that we got a bad shock.   Mean-  deiing   acro.s   the   room   to   find  a   seat,   we  were,   when   just   op-*~  posite the chairman's desk,  halted  'by  the  av\ful   words���������l' Guilty  or  not  guilty."     Needless to say, we  promptly- threw   up    our    blood-,  stained mit. and answered "guilty."  The  sins  of  a whole  lot  of  long  years nearly paralyzed our accusing  conscience, but then, to our intense-  relief,   we  perceived' that a pretty  girl was reciting, and the dreadful  -words we had heard were the opening ones of her recit., and hot those  of  an accusing  judge prying  into  our   past^     A new Lieut. Hobson  was   the   hero   of  the evening, the  part being ably carried out by-Mr  McLeod, and right nobly did he do  the kissing act.     B.

'  We noticed several of our Court-  ney neighbours present, among  others Miss McPhee and ( Miss  Berkeley. Among those owning  baskets we perceived Mrs Ripley,  Mrs Ja_. White, Mrs ,,W.
