In discussing his prospective policy, Premier Prior said:���������*'My policy first will be to oppn up the  country by means of railways, and  the Canadian Northern Railway is  one scheme that if carried out, be  lieve is in thc best interests of B.C.  as a whole.

V  /���������  The practice of pit lamphuhting,'  or jack-lighting for deer, though illegal, is indulged in tea great extent by certain unprincipled poachers in this neighbourhood. Although  columns have been written, in near-'  , ly every newspaper in the country,  protesting against the evil practice,'  pointing out its dangers to man and ������  beast,, and giving accounts of thef  many fatal accidents resulting from  that practice, yet there are men who  still sneak out with their lamps and  deadly long range rifles, in defiance  * of law,--and 'in-utter, and selfish' dis- ,  regard of their neighbors' and their  neighbors'  catties'- lives,  to shoot -'  ,deer at night:   Not so-long ago,.and  not a hundred "miles from the little  "valley   where     Messrs * Harrigan;^,,.    :y  Fraser,  Calnan and  others live, w'~   - "'-  '. settler was arranging things'about  the, stove,   preparatory to'retiring,-' f      },  he -had -turned   around,  and'was   *'    *,"  about to step into the next room,,-/-; ' i;  when a biillet-from somewhere out-        -..-"*  ��������� ���������    ** "    "  ' -  side,    pierced- the   window "glass^*   '.-    r?  glanced off the stove^ and went out    '    \A  through the other, side'of the,house. -,<f  Hnd the man not moved just when  he did, he must have been shot."

To do   justice  to ibis   number,  which for beauty and ui ility touches  the highest mark, it would be necessary to print the entire list of contents.    It is sufficient to state that  in it the best modern writers and  artists .are  generally   represented.  The book contains over 230 pages,  with 34 full-page illustrations, of  which 20 are in two or more colors,  the  magnitude   of  this   December  number,   for   which   728   tons   of  paper and 6.tons of ink have  been  used, may be understood from  the  fact that 91 presses running 14 hrs.  a day, have been required to print  it; the binding alone of the edition  of 915,000 copies representing over  20,000,000 sections which had to be  gathered   individually   by   human  hands.

">  '   I knew nothing of what was in progress above,  for  Lawford  never came  near me,again.    I saw nothing of the  'chase, for I was uot suffered to-go on  deck   or  even   leave   my, cabin. .The,  negro  brought  me  my. food,  but  was  ' absolutely dumb, aud I  was forced to  possess  myself, in   patience  for  what  . -night come'to me.' It was early In the-  ���������afternoon that, looking through my  port, I first saw land ahead. The'out-  -er port had never been lowered, and  ���������the deadlight, being too small in circumference to allow a man to pass  through the aperture, had not been  closed or fastened. So 1 "easily made  out' rocks  and   green   slopes,   but   no  .._ouses or- sJgus���������of life.  ' I realized, as 1 heard the anchor rattle down at the chains that we had en-  we  and  '    tered   some   quiet    haven   where  '   'might  lie  free  from  interference  prying eyes.  , For the rest of the day I experienced  _I1 a captive's emotious when escape  ���������seems near. I .alternated between high  ���������spirits and the depths of despair, the  ���������latter predominating as the hours crept  ���������slowly on to nightfall. I had- all but  given   up   hope,   believing either  that  - Lawford had sold me or could not see  his way to help, when something tick  " -ed lightly against my porthole; and I  saw  a .small  parcel jiendont  outside.  Opening the deadlight eagerly, I fished  'in the parcel, winch' was wrapped  'around   with   paper  and   contained, a  key.   There were also a few brief lines  from Lawford:  "This will let yoti out.    It" Is the key*  of your cabin. Beware of the black  .and wait till after diuner,-\vheu we are  on deck and the darky forward.    Slip  ���������out   through   the   stern   ports..    The  dingey is astern, if you cau only reach  her. Cut'adrift1,and paddle your own  ���������canoe.    That's about  the  best  1  can  do."  ���������   I did the rest easier than I thought.  (The movements of the dingey have  already been told, aud the events that--  followed tlie escape.)  I was quite lost.' at. first, when I* got  on shore: but I did not care, so long as  - 4 was free. 1 was In France. 1 know  that much, and after climbing a steep  _*ath I soon hit on a road gleaming  white and dusty -in the darkness." I  :stood for a moment debating which  way I should turn, eastward or westward, my object being to reach some  town or place on a line of railway,  whether by walking to it or taking a  vehicle. As soon as I came upon a  milestone I struck a match and read  '���������the legend. , In the direction I was  going , Lamballe was distant 15 kilometers, and behind me the road led  to Brest, 1G0.  It was clearly, to Lambelle, not  "Cre_t, that I must make my way, some  -eight miles in all. and I reached it be-  for 11 p. m. People were still up as  1 passed along the narrow streets,  seated at the cafe doors, and I took  'my place at one of (he tables, calling:  for a "bock" aud a railway guide. I  was not long in arranging my plan.  Fortunately I had money, plemty of  ���������money, in my pockets, aud that made  .-everything easy. I found that a train  ieft at G:'50 a.".rn. for Paris, the longest,  yi't the, quickest, route to Southampton. ,1 could catch the night express  for Havre, and be in Southampton at  .daylight. By this I should have ,a  <-onple of hours and more in Paris,  :vnough to buy necessaries and make  .a* cotiside-rable change in iny . appearance: for I was resolved to take pas-  *���������������go : incog, arid in the fore cabin,  ivhere I should attract no attention.  settle down.  I had no opportunity of meeting  Frida, nor was I able to advance my  other business, until the voyage was  half over. There is n wide gulf set between first and second cabin passengers. My range was strictly limited.  I could not go near the hurricane deck  nor enter the principal smoking room,  the music room or saloon, although' I  hung about constantly and became at  last an object of suspicion to'the officers, stewards and quartermasters and  met sometimes with rough rebuffs.  The second day out I once more became conscious that I was being watched wherever I went. Recent events  had left me very sensitive of espionage. I, was no longer disposed to make  little of it, but still my, feeling was  more- of resentment than alarm, so  much so that I turned sharply on my  follower, who was a saloon passenger  and quite out of place on the fore deck,  our territory, and I challenged lilm to  explain his conduct.  "I am a friend, Captain Wood," he  said in a whisper as he took me aside.  "Rossiter Is my name, and I represent  Saraband and Snuyzer, who,could not  sail with us. ' He went after j'ou, following the' Fleur-de-LIs. How in thunder are you here?"       (>   '.  As. soon as I was satisfied of his  good faith���������and he proved it by his  knowledge of every circumstance ,of  the case���������I told him rny story.,  "Miss' Fairholme will be real glad, I  tell you, sir. She knows'nothing yet,  although I made you ,out -from the  firsts through - the- dog,' sir; besides  which, I had your description and your  photograph.

Sir William prided him-  < self on being the patron of struggling  genius and so gave him the commission  1   "to perpetuate -in marble the beauty of  his, only'daughter, the .-Lady Margaret.  The sculptor was a man of twenty-  /'eight, with a fair face and an aristo-  , cratic   bearing.    There . could   be   no  '" '    '   question-that he was a, real artist with  the chisel.

But Sir William refused to listen.  For the next few days Lady Margaret  often felt his sad. imploring eyes fixed  upon her,,hut he did uot again veuture  to approach her. ,  The fifth evening a note was delivered at ,her door. Almost immediately  following Signor Albano made his appearance in the smoking room. He carried a revolver iu his hand. His face  .was pale and his eyes blazing.

Iu the next half hour 1  mav receive a note, if 1 do. all will be  well; if I do not, we will all go to the  bottom together ut exactly 1) o'clock."  There was a hurried scuttling of the  smokers. The whole, ship was soon in  commotion.' discussing plaus for his  capture. But he wus armed and evidently mad aud hence must be cajoled  rather than forced. Y        ��������� ���������  .At quarter to 9 he called to the whispering group' outside ^he saloon door:  "Gentlemen,' we bave fifteen minutes  left. I warn every one not to hasten  the calamity,by tampering with' my  stateroom door. If you open that door,  you w;illJ-explode thirty pounds of dynamite ut once." "   f'  There was soniethiug theatrical ahr ���������  it all, and yetcthe .menace in the 1.  lan's'voice brought a, shiver. The cap-  tain made a sign to the ship's carpenter, and "they, silently went below.  Avoiding the fatal door, the carpenter  feverishly began- work on1 the room  partition. ''It seemed uhours before he  had cut a'hole-large enough to allow  his body to slip through. Just clear of  the door was the signor's steamer  trunk. Two wires ran from the door  to the trunk.-,and from the interior  came a noise like^ the .'ticking of a  clock. When the wires had been cut,  the captain said:-  ' "Softly, - now. Up with the cover.  Ah! Here is the clockwork, and a  handkerchief, among the wheels does  the business."' ' ������       '  ,< At the same moment the report of a  revolver rang out. , Up in the saloon  the clock was pointing to 9.

The white faced passengers waited tremblingly, for another report, but instead they heard a woman's cry. .The Lady, Margaret had  fallen, fainting", in" the doorway.  Was there dynamite in the trunk?  Truly ninety*pounds of it.' But for the  coolness of the captain 400 lives would  have been-sacrificed to the disappointment of a madman. .'

In the reminiscences of Lord Ronald  Gower is found a story of the origin of  the stars and stripes.  The "star spangled banner" of the  American republic has its origin from  an old brass on the floor of Brington  church, in Northamptonshire. The  brass covers tbe tomb of one Robert  Washington and is dated 1022. On it  appears the Washington coat of arms,  consisting of three stars, with bars .or  stripes beneath them. On the first day  of the new, year, 177G. the thirteen  united colonies raised a standard at  Washington's headquarters.  This introduced the stripes of the  present, bnt retained the crosses of St,  George and St. Andrew on a blue  ground iu the corner. In 1777 the crosses were replaced by stars, as the Declaration of Independence rendered the  retention of the English element unnecessary and inconvenient. In thus adopting the arms of* his ancestors as his  own distinctive badge Washington no  doubt intended the flag merely as a  private signal for his'own personal following, but it was at once adopted as  a national emblem. Probably there is  not another case in the world's history  in wliich the private arms of an obscure family have attained 'such-worldwide eminence and repute.  He   Pronotmced.It   Butter.

Lewis.]  NE October day Zeb White,  the _gossu_ hunter of Tennessee, took me along wall  him when he went the rounds  of his woodchuck traps, and as we  were coming home he told me this story:  "I worked so hard fur.three or fo'  y'ars arter'the wan tbat"l got all rut  down and couldn't skassly git about.  Thar was days when I felt purty well  and days when-1 jest sot around and  hadn't strength 'nuff to move outdoahs.  That same y'ar a' critter "named Tike  moved intb the lmyburhood.    He was  .-" *\  "NOW,  THEN,  ZEB WHITE, CUM OUT THEE!''  ��������� from Alabamy, I believe, and he let it  be. known * powerful soon that he \va_  ti hefty man in a scrimmage.- He talked so loud and, blowed so high that ev-1  .erybodj7-"was  skeart of,*kim.   and   he  -r  Jest .went'around^stepping high   and  bossin' the.roost.' .That critter used to  , cum 'down to my cabiii-'and brag and  'blow, and   tell   how ' many  men   he'd  licked, and one day I'gin'���������him plain to  '.    tinderstan' that I didn't believe his stov  ,    ries.Y That' made - him   mad, "and   he  wenf-away^sayino as hqw he'd wallop  '   *-_e fmv his' next' victim.    He'.knowed,-I  -    was in pore'health, and "couldn't fight,a  f. fly,- but; every two or'three, days' he'd  cum-:'dowh^and "stand" in  front of the.  .cabin:and yell:   " ���������   ; ,-���������   -     ,< .,--_'*  t- "��������� 'Now? then, Zeb" White", cu'm out  yere, and git the awfulest .wallopin', a  human 'critter ever received! I'm "no  hand to brag,.but-1 kin tie both hands  behind, me a-ftd then. chaw yo' up in  ' two -minits. I've licked forty-seven  different men and never got tny nose  skinned. Either own up that yo' dasn't  tight a man or cum out and be walloped.'  "That's the, way he'd talk to me."  continued Zeb, "and I'd git so mad  that I cried like a child. Bimeby 1  begun to git a leetle better, and ono  day when he "was callin' on me to cum  fo'th and be walloped 1 told him that  if-he'd show up a week from that day  I'd tackle him. .He* went away crack-  in' his heels and whoopin' and rejoic-  in\ and the old woman sez to me. sez  she:  " 'Zeb White, if yo' was a well man  yo' could* wallop that critter befo' I  could make a hoecake. -but yo've bin  down the banks all summer, and yo'  can't git well ,in a .week. I'm sorry  yo' passed yo'r word, but bein' it's  passed we'll hev to abide by it. I'll  git whisky and roots toniorrer and  '    brace yo' up.' "  "And did you get better?" I asked.  "No; *I got wuss. Whisky and roots  didn't do me no good.,. When the week  was up. I was in bed and too feeble  to walk across the room. That pesky  critter knowed jest how it was with  me, and yit he cum and stood in front  of  the cabin  and   shouted  to  the ole  ��������� woman:  " 'Ar'   this   the   dwollin'   place  of  a  varmint named Zeb White?'  ' - -She be.' -    .  " 'Call's-hissclf the possum hunter of  . Tennessee, don't ho?"    .    < .       ������������������  " 'Yes; ho' do.'

I jest couldn't  help weepin' with my madness. How  was I to go out and light him when I  couldn't git outer bed? 'That's what  I asked the oie woman, and she sorter  winked and smiled and sez to me, sez  she:  "���������/Zeb. doan,* yo' worry no mo' 'bout  this wallopin' bizness. but leave it all  to me. If that varmint shows up here  tonight, he'll be the wust licked man  in all Tennessee befo' he gits away.'  " 'But who's'gwine to lick him?'  " 'Never yo' mind.'  "She wouldn't say no mo'." continued Zeb7~"and I was too feeble to ,fig-  ger it out.-__I cried myself to sleep, and  it was arter dark when I wolie up.  That thar varmint had cum hick,  'cordin' to promise, and was in front  of the cabin a-slioutin*:  ' " 'Zeb White, the time has cum fur  yo' to be pulverized. Mebbe I won't  do no mo' than chaw yo'r ears off and  cripple yo' fur life, but 1*11 do that  mui'h fur, shore. Cum outer yo'r hole  and stand up to me like a man.'  ".lest  about, the  time   he   begun   to  holler my ole woman begun to git outer  her clothes and inter mine.  " 'What yo' gwine to do?' sez I.   ,  " 'Gwine out  to  wallop  that critter  or die,' sez' she.  "'But yo'ar' a 'Woman, and he's a  powerful fighter.'     ��������� '  "'Zeb'White, yo' snuggle down and  keep quiet, lie's cum'Yur a light. -He's  bin promised one and has to hev it.  As yo' can't G_ht him, I shall: and I'm  a-feelin' that the Lord will put a jawbone inter my hand to'slather bim.'-  "It wasn't, no use to talk .to lier.  When she got dressed up,, she looked  like, a man, and as she stood in tbe  door that varmint cracked his heels  together and crowed like a rooster. I  jest had the strength to git to the winder, and -I saw all that took place.  When the fellcr'had crowed and cracked, he yelled out: . ,  . " 'My forty-eighth victim ar' now befo' me to tbe'chawed.v Speak up, Zeb  White, and tell me which ear yo'd  rather I'd begin en to git up my appetite.' Whoop, whoop-ee!'" ,  "And about the tight?" I asked. .as  Zeb was silent,for several minutes.*.  "It was full of "surprises." he answered. "That varmint was only a'  blowhard arter all. The ole .woman  walkedciiround him two^or three times  "and then'sailed in. He hollered at tbe  fust jump, and'tried to git away, but  she wouldn't let him. She scratched,  kicked and pulled, ha'r,- and when'she  finally lct'up on him-he wouldn't hev  looked wuss if half a dozen b'ars.had  played 'with him. I've seen a heap of  men walloped, but he was the wallop;  "edcst<man of,the hull lot." '   -  "And  be,didn't know'it was,a woman?"! asked.  .   _*;       A*-,    ��������� -.-./  "Never knowed it till  he got'diomo(  and'his own4 wifet>examined.-*the claw  > marks, and - the .'.bites. - The  story' got  around, and purty soon he had';to,jest  , pull'up and, moyeT away. -He had.'bin  flicked  by a'"woman,  and -it, was' the  wuss lickin',_p ever got.".-."  "And how, did' Mrs. White come but  of it?"       "'      .   i( "  "She  didn't git a  scratch,   but  I've  alius bin sorry about it."   ' *  tv  "For what reason?"    -  "Waal," said Zeb as he, turned his  face away from me. "befo' that fight  she was a mighty humble woman and  left all the bossin' to me. Seiice then  she's���������she's"���������  "She's not so humble?" '  "Jest so; jest got the idea that she  kin wallop me. same as she did him,  and thar ar' days when she's all ready  to make a try at it.' Spiles a woman to  git such noshuns in her.head���������of co'se  it does."  And, an hour after we got home that  evening I overheard her saying to him:  "Now, Zeb White, yo' git me up a  heap of firewood by the back doah to-  morrer or take the consequences, and  I'm tellin' yo' that them same consequences .will make yo'r back .ache fur a  hull month-to cum."

"There is ,nq. mistake'," replied* Mr.  Bowser. "I ordered the molasses as I  came along." , ���������   ,  "But how did you happen to do that?"  asked Mrs. Bowser. > Y  "I am going,to pass a homelike evening, and to help me do it I am going to  make some old fashioned molasses candy. <I have been' longing for some for  mouths past."  "But you can buy-any amount of.it."  '   "Not" the  kind   mry   mother  used  to  make.

I never think of the  old farmhouse without thinking of molasses candy. Mother used-to make a  kind that one could never get enough  of, and I ini sure I can turn out some-  th'ng just as good."

Non-I'ayiiis: Cows,  The dairy commissioner of Minnesota says, that 25 pen. cent, of the1  cows of that State.,do not pay for  their feed, and that 'they should be  sent to the butcher as soon as possible". This is ���������.ossibiy: true of ��������� the  cows of the Dominion also.. ���������-The sad  part of this, says ���������'the-.Farmers'.

"I am sorry if I hurt your feelings,"  Baid Mrs..Bowser after a time, "but it  never occurred to nie to connect sentiment and molasses candy.

'  NORTH WEST CANADA.  During the fiscal year which end-  ed on 30th"June last, no less  than  22,000    residents    of   the   United  ,   States took up their abode  and be-  came permanent settlers -in North-'  west Canada and this immigration  is increasing at, the rate of 12,000  for the last four-months.   -The majority of the migrators are agricul-  =   turists   from   the". North.-western  States,   are excellent farmers,  and  readily take the Bruish oath of al-  legiance.      .In   referiing , to   this  A large,, unaided, and.almost unsolicited   immigration   pouring   into  North-west Canada,'" the Montreal  - Star, one of  the leading papers of  r. ^  '    the Dominion, thinks the time has  come for stopping the Dominion's  antiquated policy, of- promoting ar- ���������  tifieial   nnd .assisted   immigration.  It'pays :    ''The young and'unborn  - of Canada ought to be considered.  Their proper he'-itage _3,being, ali"-  en a ted. , Where are^theVJn^.their  turn, to get ,lfree ^or cheap lands?  We have thought too much ofthe  hour, of the transportation compan-  ��������� ies, or the speculators who,desire,t0  t-ell farming lands or town lots.  Our own posterity^may yet cuise the  "snort-sighted folly of their father.-.  It will ��������� seem almost incredible  twenty-five years hence that we  maintained a costly staff to do  nothing but try tn get outsiders to  take the lands that our children  are sure to need. Parliament should  carefully consider the matter after  ,next  session."     Whatever ma}r be  i  the ultimate result of the absorption  and settlement of  large   tracts of  our  public   lands   by  Americans,  there  is no doubt that its present  result will be the hastening of the  completion of the Canadian Northern, with its'terminus on Vancouver  Island,   which will  greatly benefit  B C.     The great object of our new  citizens in the North-West appears  to be the betterment of the condition.     The wheat-lands of Dakota  and Minnesota, where they principally came from, are not very productive, and the Canadian   North-  West wneat lands are the best and  most productive on the American  continent.
