T. E. BATE,  DUNBITOIR AVE  Cumberlant  VISIT OF OFFICIALS.  Two gentlemen, both high officials  of the Royal Bank of Canada, took  a quiet trip to Cumberland and  through Comox Valley last week.  Ostensibly on a fishing trip, it is an  l>lFiT8ecrertha t"T hFsegen t lemeiTari"  visiting the town and district as  secretly as possible as a preliminary  towards starting a  branch  bank  here, being induced to  view the  scene from the aot ions of the City  Council with regard to the matter.  It is to be hoped; that they meet  A'ith  sufficient encouragement to  oause them to give a favourable report lo headquarters  Mrs Davis' children* class, wat  held on Saturday afternoon. A delightful time was spent by about 40  young people, a number of whom  had beeu invited. Ice-cream and  tea, cakee and sandwiches wero  served at six o'clock after which the  happy youngsters dispersed to their  homes.  Mr B. E. Maynard, of the Victoria Chemical Works, was in town  last week, and will, during his visit  to the district, call on all the farmers of the Valley. The fertilizers  and spraying chemicals manufactured by the fi-m are of first-elass  quality, and all farmers and gar-  deirers-are^realiiing-the-valtie-oi-  concentrated fertilisers, which can  be used with little trouble and are  better, than the average barn yard  manure. Mr Maynard himself is a  practical man in his business, and  has lately contributed, by request,  a series of valuable papers on fertilizers and peat lands for an agricultural society in New York.  We cannot publish correspondence without the writer's name, for  this reason a letter received a few  days ago concerning a society function, held near here, was left out.  There is nothing strange in A;  Jones' being left at Union Wharf  until the arrival of Ihe doctor. It  it often more dangerous to an in*  jured patient to be jolted in a con*  veyanoe before a medical man ap-  plies the necessary bandages than  to be quiet and wait, Tbe pain is  present in any case.

Man after mau ln the ranks of the  ..three cavalry companies' at Fort Concho used the words aa he glanced toward a trooper sitting alone on the  sunny side of the mesa bouse, gazing  away over the undulating country toward the Pecos hills, Private Jamea  Bligh--always called Jim except on the  muster rolls���������had served Uncle Sam  for forty long years. No other man  could show such a record. He had enlisted at the age of twenty-two, and  his service had continued without a  break. He was without education, Inclined to seriousness and solitude, but  a man always to be depended upon by  his officers. They had the will to advance him, and his,record after the  first year or two deserved it, but he preferred to remain Private James Bligh.  Forty years in the service; most of  that, time spent in the frontier forte,  rtiad''brought *6tirring adventures and  . hbnoratfle ig<iars to the cavalryman. He  had little to say of himself, but the  written records of his regiment had  done him full justice.

Private Bligh  had become an old man. Ills hair was  turning white, his back bent.and rheumatic pains had stiffened his legs. He  ��������� had not noticed it, his comrades had  not seen the signs, his officers had not  whispered it to each other. It was only  when'a new colonel came to the post  ������nd set about sprucing up the regiment  that the word weDt round. .Jim waa  to be retired as too old for active service, In such cases the government provides a monthly stipend���������about enough  TBI PTfefl WETUt VTXkWVt VV ACROSS THI  STAOB.ROAD. *","���������  '*. *  to pay for one's bread and'butter���������but  It wns felt by all* the men,,that it  wns llko turning a faithful old horse  out to��������� tycotne. the victim .of .wolves.

The bitterness could not pass  from his heart. Old. mep were useless in the army,,especially on the  frontier, but to be forced out after  forty years of service seemed rank injustice. ' Why'hadn't tbeywaited a bit  .longer? The restless, treacherous Utes  would revolt again In a little while,  and his command would be called out  ns a dozen times before. That would  ���������-'��������� him ������-chance'to die a soldier'?  death���������a last chance. In view of hia  record they shouldn't have begrudged  him tbat. To be mustered out after  forty years of continuous service seemed to him an inglorious thing���������to smack  almost of disgrace.  An hour passed away as Private  Bligh sat thinking, and of a sudden he  was aroused from his reverie by the  reports of rifles and whoops of exultation from the north^ No need .for him  to eland and listen. Thc shots and  yells came from the Utes, and tbey  would not be shooting and yelling unless on tho war path. The lieutenant  and the colonel's daughter had ridden  to the north and perhaps into an ambush. Fifteen-seconds after the first  sounds reached his ears Private Jim  was in the saddle, and as he rode he  unslung his carbine and.loosened his  revolver ia its holster. There came,,  Into his eyes the gleam of battle, Into  his soul a thirst to do or die. "His colonel had not given him "a chance, but  waa it to come to bim some other way?  There was a hot gallop for a mile,  and then Private Jim found, tbe officer  and the girl crouched behind a mass  of rock and a war party of fifty Utes  preparing to rush them. Eoth horses  had been shot down and the officer  wounded In the first volley, and the  trooper had only come up whon the  lieutenant was hit again aud fell in a  heap. o  "Up with you, girl!" shouted Private  Jim as he bent toward the white faced  girl who huddled against the rocks.  "The'lieuferiant* is ddad, aud it's one  chance in a thousand that we get out  of this. Give me your haiid."  Ho lifted her up and swung her on  to the saddle in front of him, and the  bullets were cutting the air all about  them as they- dashed away. In two  minutes they were out of range, but  another peril confronted therm .A dozen  Utes had mounted and taken a short-  cut, and Private Jim looked ahead 40  find them drawn up across the' stage  road running between high banks.  "^lls.sy, listen to,me," he said to the  girl he; held tn bis arras. "I'm an old  man. I'm to be mustered out because  I'm no good any* more. I'm going to  charge those .redskins full tilt. We  may die together. If they kill you' and  I am spaced, I shall carry your dead'  body home. If they kill me and you  are spared, hang to the saddle, and the  horse will take you safe in. Just sbut  your eyes and hamr on.! We are right  upou them now.   ,Wboop, hurrah!"  The Indian ponies were massed, and*  the Indians were'"flrlng at the horse  thundering down, but their bullets  mls&'c'd, and'tie struck the lighter horses,  to whirl them around or send them  rolling. It was a smayh, crash, yell,'  whoop, and horse and rider were  through.' A volley followed them as  they continued tbelr flight, nnd Private  Jim reeled ia the saddle and groaned.  A minute later he said:  "Missy, listen again, I've got my  death, wound.! I'm mustered out of  service, and It's the way I hoped and  prayed for. I've lived like a soldier,  and I wanted to die like one. I'll be  out of the saddle In a miuuta m6n,  but you hang tight, and you'll he taken  safe in.

Etc  w\m%wM^Xw)a^^  Two   days   passed    at    Eddington  quietly, and, for mo, not altogether  pleasantly. 1 should not have cn-  ;.ojrt?d myself at all had it  not been  lor the prospect of thc dance, or  rather the ball���������for the entertainment., kept on growing in size and  importance���������which was to take place  at the end of 4the week. I was passionately fond of dancing, and looked forward with eagerness to this  pleasant break in the dullness of niy  visit to Eddington. ���������       j  For dull it was; thc gentlemen  were out shooting all day, and" every  day; and I was very glad of it, for  though I rather liked Mr. Flower,  and always hoped to be seated near  him at dinner, T found Major Heywood intolerably dull, and I perfectly detested Mr. Macdonald. Papa  and Mr. Curtis did not, of course,  join the shooting party;"������ but they'  spent most of the day in the library, poring over their beloved  books. Thence they emerged only  at* mcal-timcs with abstracted, absent faces, and had to be asked scv-,  eral times what they would'cat before they could be sufficiently roused  to the vulgar necessities of life to  appreciate the difference between  roast .mutton and cold chicken, until  papa would soften somewhat under  the Influence of Mrs. Feathcrstone's  blandishments; for, failing the pre-,  sence of any better specimen of the  male species, that lady exerted herself to the utmost to be civil and  .   pleasant to, him.  Luncheon swallowed rapidly, and  as though every moment was of untold value," the two old men would  retire again to their studies, and we  women were alone together again  until  dinner-time.  They were not pleasant to me,  ���������those-two-womeii;._thcx_J_acj_tl^Jbut_  determinedly ignored me���������talking of  mutual friends and united interests  so persistently that I had no chance  of joining in their conversations.  They discussed persons utterly unknown to mc; they spoke of scandals  well aired in the������ world of fashion,  but of which I was perfectly ignorant; they avoided generalities with  a perseverance which I must believe  to have been intentional; and, in  short, they made mo painfully conscious of being perpetually in ��������� thoir  way.  One morning, the day before, tho  ball to which I looked forward so  much, Mrs. Leith came (lying into  the room with an open letter in her  hand.  "Who do you suppose is staying at  Chadlcy?" she excluimed, excitedly.  "The dearest darling in tho world !  Such a friend of yours, Clara! Guess  who, You will bo so pleased."  ,., Mrs. Foathorstono thus adjured,  mentioned half a dozen persons, all  of them men, whom, T imagine, she  considered in thc light of "dearest  darlings;" but nono of her surmises  were apparently correct,  "What do you say to Pet.'?", cried  Mrs, Leith, triumphantly.  "What, dear old Pot? How charming! Why, he will bo coming over  with tho Holt party to-morrow  night. How dolightfull"  "Yob; I had no idea ho know thorn  at all. Mrs. Lowndes mentioned It  in hor lottor quito at tho ond, where  H'n all crossed. I did not read it  UU just now,"  "But, my   dear Anna,    wo   must  fosltlvoly get him nwny from thoro.  Ie will bo fulling in love with Lndy  Margaret, or some such horror; betides, ha would be much jollier with  us."  "Can't you write and ask him to  ���������top whon lie mines to-morrow night?  {stond ovor n mini with a inter,"  "Yes; of court-e T enn, ''ome, nnd  Ut ua wrlto a note to him."  The two friends wit down together  At a distant > writing-table, with thoir  h*������������ds togotlW; nntl, to judge from  the laughter which went on, I should  Imagine the note of invitation eon-  contort between them must, hnvo linen  ��������� highly Immoi-oiiH production,  Presently the bc-M Whs rung, tint,  orders given thut a uroom should  hit* over at once to Lord Holt's  with the 11.1 tier.  Now, I eould not help feeling exceedingly curious as to this unknown  riiplurnim exj-ivrrlo-i'i on the purl  of the two friends, and who rejoiced  In tho so endearing a cognomen *%*  that of "Pot."  "Pet" was, I gathered ������ from tht  above enn versa lion, undoubtedly a  male being, and prosumnbly a full-  grown man, although, had I not  known thoitnstos and peculiarities of  my friends, I might easily hnvo Imagined, from so caressing a name,  that tho possessor of it was somo  well-bred pug or Skye torrler, or,-at  the most, somo captivating child.  Hut from tho allusions to "Lndy  Margaret," whoso Incipient rivalry  wai to bt thu* timely crushed. It,appeared to mo that, beyond all doubt,  "Pot" had obtained the years of discretion. Probably ho wan ont of  thoso littlt duo docltno editions of  f-Muhood whom women are no unf-  versaily tone of, who, by their   Ui-  i *     ������������������    ������������������  nimutivoness and their saucy speech-.  . es,  win their way to greater , privileges, nnd' freedoms than are' generally  j accorded to    their  larger    brethren;  i who sit at ladies' feet    holding their  skeins of silk, or playing    with    tho  charms oh-'their chatelaines, enjoying  the good thing's thus freely    granted  to  them   'wonderfully;    and exciting  tlio envy of bigger and    less-favored  men.  "Pet", was evidently a man after  this fashion, his soubriquet spoke for  itself. He was, I supposed, small,  dandy, and curly-haired, with tiny,  patent leather encased* feet, and  hands that took "ladies' size" in  gloves. As such he would havo, beyond being a physiological study, no  sort pf attraction for myself.  Nevertheless, I had a certain  amount "of feminine curiosity about  him. . ���������  I gathered later on in the day when  the messenger had returned from his  errand to Chadlcy Castle, that  "Pet," whoever he was, had accepted Mrs. Featherstone's invitation;  that he was to come over with Lord  Holt's party to the ball, stay that  night at Eddington, s^nd go out  shooting with the gentlemen of our  party the next day.  The eventful day arrived at length.  My dress���������simple as it was, and relieved only from its dead whiteness  by bunches of delicate ferns and rich-  colored exotic blossoms which I believe Charley Flower bad ransacked  all the hot-houses and tortured tyhe  minds of all the gardeners to procure for me���������was nevertheless, I  felt, a success.    I looked my best.  Nevertheless, as the hour approached for the arrival of the guests, I  L felt ��������� unaccountably nervous, and  creeping down into the big, empty  _b_ajJ-room, I ensconced myself shyly  in the deep rcces^bf_6ife~df~the"win~  dows whence I could see and hardly  be seen myself.  From my sheltered corner I watched the country squires and dames  with their,., bevies of..,awkward or  graceful daughters,; and their, for t he  most part,, urig-ftinly hobbydchoy  sons as they filed-into tho room;  Some of them I know slightly, but  most of them wero strangers; for  although we hod lived for years at  the Slopperton Cottage, tliat humble  abode.and its inhabitants had not  been much* given either to dispense  or to receive hospitality, and wo  were as little known to most of the  county magnates us though we had  dwelt in Whitochnpcl.  Tho room was llllirig rapidly, when,  wiih a little flutter of expectation at  tho doorway suitablo to tho importance of the guests, the party from  Chudley  Castle was  announced,  I bent forward eagerly in my corner to watch theft' entrance as Mrs.  Foathorstone, rcsplondont in ruby  satin and diamonds, swept forward  to receive thoin with gracious em-  pitssoment; nnd even Mr. Curtis left  ���������oil tin intoreHting niinorulogical discussion with an ancient scientist,  whom he had button-holed into a  corner, to attend to his duties as  host.   .  First comes Lord Holt hlmsolf, a  mtld-fncod little man, with a deprecating, apologetic air, as though ho  would perpetually bo saying: "Don't  bo alarmed, good folk; although I  am the biggest mon in tho county, I  ronlly don't want to frighten you. I  assure you I am most gentle in my  habits, and not oven a child among  you need stand tn fear of me,"  Not so his wife, Lady Holt Is  clad in Importance and a Parisian  gown, of both of wlilch Bho Is equally conscious, and which strike envy  Into the heart of every female be-  holrior, Kvon Mrs. FeathofHtono op-  peurs io be subdued, and to 'tremble  boforo hor, To tho world at largo,  Lmly llolt appears to bo saying,  "Full down and worship, oh, yo lesser mortals! nnd consider yoursolvus  lucky thntymi nro not blinded by  the dur/.ling glory that surrounds so  great n pnrsonnge ns myself."  Lady Margaret follows In tho wnko  .if her parents, and is a pnlor and  plainer uditlon of her mothor, whont]  she much rnsemliles. After hor follow two couples whoso nnmos I havo  not caught, and whoeo itppfarnneo  dooji not Interest me.  ��������� Ana now ivi J'..-.!'

CIIArTER X.  Ah! my tell-tnle heart, will It  never stop beating.  I shrink back into my corner and  hope that no one will tee mo.  Ho this is their "Pet," of whom  they talked with such familiar intimacy! What evil chance of fate hnt*  thrown   him again across my .vaiit'l  Is it chance? or has he come, to iind  me out? Ah! no; if he is here by design it is not for me���������I dare not  flatter myself that it tan be for me;  it is to worship at Mrs. Feather-  stone's shrine���������it is for hor thr.t he  is here! Already he is bending down  towards her with* iW. csyessii*--  manner which T remember all too  well, and gazing with eager eyes into the bold, handsome face that does  not shrink from his ardent looks.  And she is handsome!���������horribly,  'tori'ibly handsome! "I never recognized it'so, plainly', before;*, It is for  hoi* he is hero; he does not even  know that I am in Uio room; he has  not even seen me, nor even once  looked round to seek mo; he is utterly and wholly absorbed in his  delight at meeting Clara Featherstone.  Suddenly a flash of memory .carries,  me back to a stormy evening not a  month ago. I hear the splash of  the waves around me; I feel the gentle pressure of a sheltering arm that  is round mc,an,d thc warm graso of a  hand in which* mine is clasped; and  then, oh! crowning humiliation! I  seem to feel again the swift touch of  his moustache upon my cheek. Re-"  membering .it,'I'shrink still further  into my corner, crimsoning hotly  with anger and with shame.  And then the music of the first  quadrille strikes up, the people  standing in front of mc make way,  and I hear George Curtis saying:  "Where is she?" and he leads up  Lord Holt, and introduces me to  him.  "I hope you will aot mind dancing a square dance with an old man  for once, my dear young lady," he  says, graciously, and conveys me off  on his arm, amid the wondering  gaze of the bystanders, towards the  top of the room.  Oh the way he pauses for a minute, and introduces me to his wife  and daughter, who both shake  hands with me, and several other  people speak to me kindly. I begin  to perceive that as the future mistress of Eddington I am a person of  some rjniportance, and that most of  the county people are curious to inspect me.  As I move onwards, upon Lord  Holt's arm, the skirts of my dress  brush ������across' Mark Thistleby's feet,  but I hold my head very high, and  look s'traight in front of me, as if I  did not see him.  Ohl those "dreadful Lancers. Would  they never, I wondered, come toV>an  ~end?���������I-talked^������xcitedly-to-my���������au=--  gust partner, had I not talked I  must have cried; of what we conversed I h$ye not now the faintest  recollection! 1 I do not think that I  heard or understood one word that  he said to me, and yet I chatted ex-  citedly���������merrily, even���������whilst my  eycffPwere incessantly drawn, as by a  magnet, to a broad back and ;a  brown head in a neighboring sot,  not a dozen yards'off, dancing with  Clara Featherstone.  The Lancers come to an end, and  Lord Holt proceeds to walk, me  away down tho room. I think he is  telling me somo anecdote of adventures in his younger days at a  masked ball in Florence. He laughs  a good deal, and I laugh too���������out  of sympathy I imagine, for I do not  quito realize the point of tho story.  As wo go, our royal progress Is frequently impeded by dancing men  clamoring for my card.  "Tho flrst walta is ours, Miss  Clifford," snys Charley Flower;  "and a friend of mine is most anxious to be introduced to you,"  "You aro going to give mo n  waltz. I hope?" shouts the deaf  Major Heywood. And then several  other mon aro introduced to ine, nnd  I scrawl illeglblo hieroglyphics upon  my dancing card, which Is soon  noarly filled up.  "You aro tiro Queen of tho Ball,"  tays Lord Holt, smiling gallantly,  as the music strikes up, ns he resigns we to young Flower; and whon  ho nays it I am glad���������glad that  Mark Thistloby should find mo  Uburted and sought after, so that  'he may not for'bno momonfc imng-  ino that his going or his coming is  of tho slightest importance to mo.  But as tho ovohing wears away,  nnd danco aftor danco goes by, aud  still ho has mado no sign, no token  that ho ovon noon ma, my flutter of  dnflanco (Jlos away, and my oyes wander wistfully towards him.  Not onco havo our oyes mot. Captain Thistlehy has boon dancing as  much ns myself, principally with my  future slstcr-in-Iaw, and tho chances'  and changes of tho ball-room havo  brought him moro than onco In close  proximity to mo, and yet novor to  my knowledge has ho looked at me.  Tho lino of notion Is so innrkod  and so unnaturnl that'I cannot bo-  llevo that it Is not intentional. A  perfect stranger would, in nil probability, hatfo glanced nt mo ocens-  !.-;!:a1!y; nnd ci" T nm errfnln Hint he  ennnnt hnvn forgotten mo, It' follows  thnt ho must bo avoiding mo designedly. But why should ho bo so  cruelly insulting ns to Ignore mo al-  toflother? Even as Bolla's friend, if  not as his awn, ha might havo given mo some, if ovor so slight, a recognition,  Tho flush of oxcltomont fades out  of my faco, end my heart turns sick  with a nameless mlsory ns I watch  him bending down to whisper Into  Mrs. Fonthorstone** willing ear. At  all ovents lie is amusing himself very  woll, for he Is flirting with hor desperately.  "How palo yr������u look!" says Charley Flower, who Is dancing with mo.  "You havo been pretty woll danced  to plccos this evening."  "I am tired," I acknowledge. "Is  not thc next dance a polka? I think  1 will go and lit Ira tht conterratory  and rest a little. I believe I amVcn*  gaged) to Mr. Macdonald,' but*!-* t  don't want to dance. If I get away  quietly he won't find ine."  "Yes, lot us come. You will let:  me sit out with you, won't you,,  Miss Clifford?'!  Mr. Flower has been waxing dangerously tender during the last post-  supper hour.  "Not for the World. What would  Mrs. Leith say?"  "Oh, bother Mrs. Leith! Let me*  stop with you."  'No, please don't. I hnvn such a  headache. I want to be quite alone.  You may come back and fetch' ine  when the dance is over,"  "I am go sorry. Can't 1 get you  anything? Not n pinss of .'berry?  Are you sure ybti like to le 1 i'l  here?"  "ves. ou'te sure."     A.ed ho ro.'s,'  The conservatory does not open  out of tho'bajl-room; vbuVout of the  morning-room��������������������������� on the further side of  the hall. 'Through the open doors I  can hear the faint strains of the  music, and' see the whirling- white  and pink tulle skirts and black coats  going round and round "on a never-  ending treadmill. ','  It is largo and cool, and dimly  lighted. I sit down on a bench in  the corner behind a big shiny-leaved  camellia-bush, which completely shelters me, and wearily close niy eyes,  feeling utterly wretched and worn  out.   . ':���������-,;,.  A quick step comes across tl\e tes-  selatcd pavement, and some one  says, in a quiet voice: "You have  not one dance left, I suppose?"   >  "Not one," I answer, in the same  tone, whilst my pulses start off at a  wild gallop, and the hot blood rushes up into my face.  Mark Thistleby sits down beside  me.  "Why have you behaved so rudely  to me the whole evening?" I asked  angrily. V,  He laughs softly, but does not answer the question.  "What a snug corner you have  found for yourself, Freda!" He utters my, name softly and caressingly, and his eyes look longingly at  me. Can this be the same" man  whom I watched ten minutes ago  flirting with Mrs. Featherstone?  "Why did you prettlnd not to know  mo?���������why would you not look at me  before?" I say, indignantly.  "I am looking at you now,"     he  answers, tormentingly; and there   is  no doubt of it; he is looking at me  so *.flWdlyr"tKat~r^Caiinot~"raise    my"  eyes to his.  "Answer my question. I will be  answered!" 1 repeat, stamping my  foot, and crimsoning hotly beneath  his gaze.  Mark Thistleby laughs,  "You will be answered? Very well,  then, listen. Once upon a time there  was a rich man who owned a pearl  of great price. In the strongest  room of-his castle ho concealed this  treasure; the windows were closed  up, the door was furnished with  bolts and bars, with chains and  locks of elaborate workmanship, and  numerous warders wero stationed  around to guard tho jewel fi'om  harm. Now there was a very poor  man���������a bad man���������a blackguard���������a  thief, indeed, he may be called���������who  desired- tho rich man's pearl' more  than any other earthly-good." He  made up his mind to stoal it, and,  in tho guiso of a friend, ho gained  admission into the house Ho had  armed himself to tho teeth with  crowbars, skeleton-keys, pick-locks,  etc., but wisely he concealed them,  You would call that thief a great  fool, would you not, if ho had come  in brandishing his crowbars and  skoloton-koys about his head? Do  you understand my llttlo story, Miss  Clifford?" *  N  I understood it all too well, with  a groat guilty gladness, but I answered not. I felt his urdont looks  upon mo; every word that ho spoko  thrilled mo from head to fool, and  yet I was incupablc of speaking a  singlo word. i  Seemingly he wns natiRfied with  my silence, for presently ho said, in  a lighter tono:  "Do you know that 1 am stopping  horo to-night?"  "Yos."  "What, time do they broakfnst  here?';  "About hiiH-pnst nine generally. T  daresay wo may bo lator to-morrow  morning,"  "Nothing in tho world would do you  so much good as a walk boforo) breakfast. 1 shall get up oarly, and bout  tho ond of tho avoniio at 8 o'clock; if  you fcol Inclined, como and tnko. n  walk with mo, Hero comes yonr  partner to fetch you,   Good-night."

How pleasant It is to be out at  eight o'clock In the morning! Birds  w������������ro twittering in the troos; tho  fresh breeze fluttered keen and kwoci  about ua as we walked;, tho Inhorers  at thoir work looked up as wu pet������h*  ed and wished us good-day; tho children at thoir early rambles among  tho mushroom moadp>ws shouted  gaily to each other as wo went by;  ���������everything   tnd everybody swned  J led   to he nwnko to another day,  lark  and X caught tht general In  fection,   and   stepped along briskly  side by side;      t  -'' ''  It was very wrong; I had. no busi*>,  ness to be tramping along the lanes  at eight o'clock in the morning with  I, a young man, whilst my father and  my affianced, husband were snoring  in their beds;, it was wrong decidedly���������but it was pleasant exceedingly.  At first I felt somewhat shy .and  nervous���������but. Captain Thistleby's  mannei* soon put me completely at  my., ease. Every trace of that, dangerously sentimental mood in which  ho had been the evening before, had  vanished���������he was simply pleasantly  and chattily agreeable. Every word  of our conversation might have been,  so to speak, posted at Charing  Cross with -perfect propriety.  I think ho fancied ��������� he had   spoken  too  plainly to  me last night,    and  was afraid of frightening me.     For  some time he shunned all dangerous  topics.    But after a while ho asked   "  me questions   about   my    home life  and daily occupations;  smiled    over  my  descriptions  of  the  peculiarities^  of Messrs. Macdonald and Heywood,  and    looked    rather grave over my  half-deprecating  allusions  to  George ..  Curtis.    Then suddenly ho said;  "Do you know what brought me  down to this neighborhood?"  "Mrs.    .Featherstone," I answered,  promptly and demurely.  V.He looked at me from beneath his  dark lashes, and lauirhed.  V "What makes you say that?"  "You knew she was staying hero, I    .  suppose.     Do you know that     she  calls you Pet?"  "HqWvkind of her!    Do you?"  "I?���������graci'oiis heavens, no!" J  cried, blushing hotly.  "I wish you would.    I used to be ,  called so sometimes in the regiment.  1 am.,surc J Slon't know  what ..got  me such a pretty   name.     Dp   you  think it suits me?"  "Not .at all;" I replied, with frank  sincerity..   ,ii^*'V*  Mark flings4 back his handsome  head and laughs again. How gloriously handsome he looks with the  morning sunshine' in his eyes, lighting them up from cool shadowy haz- ;  el into warm, ruddy chestnut.  "Do-n't* stare so hard, Miss Clifford, you make me feel shy," says  my tormentor, suddenly. I have already mentioned that staring is my  besetting sin. "Ah, I am glad I  have made you blush. There, it's a  shame to tease you! You have not  yet given nie a proper answer to my,, ,  first question."  "fWirat-wasthat?"- ���������   "What you imagine to be, tho  cause of my visit here?"  "I told you one palpable reason. I  could find a dozen.more. Tho most  obvious would-be tho first of September, in connection with Lord'  Holt's, partridge shooting; or pos-; .  ��������� sibly. Lady Margaret was thc attraction, or���������-"  "O.r any btjier old woman!" he  said, laughing; and then with a sud-'  den gravity, he added, "I had read  your letter to Bella,"  "Very rude of you," I said, lightly, but with my heart boating wildly.  "I* wanted to see for myself ���������  how it was with you."  I was silent., Though I loved him, ,  thero was something like indignation in my heart'against him. What  had he to say to me? Why did ho  not speak openly, or elso not speak  at all.  "Aro you happy,. Freda?" ho said,  softly, bending down to look into  my faco���������just as, I; swiftly remembered, ho had bent down last night  to look into Clara Fouthorstono's,  Tho recollection lashed *mo into fury,  "Perfectly,, thank you," I replied,  with iny faee sot cold and hard.'  He drew himself up stiflly.  "In that enso I have nothing more  to soy."  "That is  lucky, os you havo   no    *  mom x'.me to say it in.

If one were looking for a cure for
bashfulness carbon paper would seem
an unlikely thing' to select. But it was
a piece of this paper which, if it did
not exactly cure John Kendall, at least
overcame the effects of his shyness.
) John's '..bashfulness was most pernicious, and, while it had not retarded
his career as a successful manufacturer *iu the flourishing town of Schuyler-
ville, it proved a very embarrassing
possession when he was smitten with
the tender passion.   '
In the first place, Margaret Little
was an "authoress," and that alone
was an awe inspiring cirebmstauce. To
beable to write stories which met with
occasional acceptance, to h^ve the postman sometimes bring her thin letters
containing checks and not to be the
grinning bearer of,bulky packages of
rejected manuscripts, placed her on a
plane above other women-r-in John's
eyes; not that she needed such placing,
for it would be futile to chronicle the
angelic qualities with wbich he endowed her.
- The trouble with this- endowment
process was that it was not disclosed
to Margaret. John could write and did
write letters teeming witb sentiment

stammering confusion and dire failure,

bad not a rival appeared on the field.
Any one who showed- Margaret the
slightest attention was a rival in John's
view, and it seemed impossible that the
editor of a New York magazine would
come fifty miles to Schuylerville for
the sole purpose of consulting Marga-
riodical. If this innocent purpose
brought the editor, something emotionally attractive in Margaret's pretty
face must have induced his: reappearance within a'month, and it was during this second visit that John spurred
himself to action.
On a June afternoon be deserted his
desk and determinedly strode toward
tbe Little homestead. His courage
usually lasted until he passed tho front
him for its own. Then an urgent business affair led bim to call on her father, who was' suffering from a slight
illness and was unable to leave his
house. i"\.-.-
When the interview with Mr. Little
was at an end and John reached the
front door, he found Margaret sitting
on the veranda. He thought to pass
her with a formal greeting, but his In-
tentions'usually went astray where she
was concerned, and! he was soon seated
near her in a wide armed veranda
"I am sorry I missed you when you
��nil<"i list week." said Marcaret after
her father's illness had been discussed.
"I'm sorry, too," John replied", mentally condemning the memory of the
maid, who ho hoped had forgotten tb"
"The girl said something about you
leaving a note," continued Margaret.
"Yes���er���an invitation to a picnic,"
John 6aid weakly, "but the affair was
' "Before you could write the note?"
"No. I thought it would be postponed, so I changed my mind."
Margaret was looking demurely at "a
rosebush. "It has been postponed before," she murmured softly, but her
companion did not hear the remark.
"John," she said in a louder tono, "I
suppose it is only in an invitation, to a
picnic that you would address me as
your dearest Margaret."
John Kendall turned slowly and re
garded the object of bis affections with
bewilderment. He wondered if any of
the torn bits of paper had been picked
up and pieced together by Margaret,
but he had scattered them so widely
that that seemed impossible.
Miss Little, .who had transferred her
gaze from the rosebush to her lover's
face, seemed to enjoy his expression.
Then John rocked violently ln the veranda chair in the hope that the action
would induce mental stimulation, but
It did not.
"Will you come with me for a moment?" Margaret asked, rising and entering the house.
John followed her to her study. There,
on the little desk, was tbe pile of manuscript paper. Margaret took a note
from the bosom of her dress, unfolded
it slowly and handed it to John.
"There was a piece of carbon, paper
among the top sheets," she said, "and
this was under it." And John read an
dressed to Margaret the week before.
For a moment he looked helplessly
at the, note, then he glanced shyly
down at'Margaret, and the expression
he saw in her eyes was entirely unlike
tbat with which she had regarded the

self, John," and bad tbe stolid type-,

In the home of Mr. and Mrs. John
Kendall, in Schuylerville, is a den, and
on one of its walls hangs a bit of black,
paper in a gilt frame.. When the curl-

tells them its story, if tbey are worthy,
and if thoy are unworthy he-merely
cays that it is an Impressionistic picture of tho darkest hour beforei dawn.

Enainff Her Stories.        \,
/ A very sniaJl girl of very large literary ambitions' found it easy enough to
begin her "stories" and work up the
plots to the right consistency for thrill
producing, but then for the life of ber
she'could not "get them stopped." One
day,--however, she hit upon* a hnppy
expedieut, nnd thereafter tbe "ending"
of her narratives was a matter of the
utmost ease. Tbe closing sentence,
whichs came with an inspiration and
served t6 draw the curtain on.Innumerable adventures, was, "One morning when they were walking up the
front path tliey all died." Occasionally
"back road" or "dark turnpike" or
"sunny lane" or something of tbe sort
was sn-bstiluted for "front path;" but.
with the exception of such minor variations, the one cheerful expedient
served the small authoress' purpose for
months, and the only question in ber
mind -was why she had never thought
c>' it before!���New York Tribuu*.
The Chinese .Matchmaker.
In China the matchmaker,' or "go between," is a very important factor in
domestic life. He.lt is who casts bis
watchful eye around that he may end
suitable husbands for. the daughters of
his acquaintances and then approaches
the parents with due circumspection
as well as a good deal of tact and diplomacy.
To the family of the young man he
narrates .the good qualities, beauty and
amiability of a certain young girl; then
he makes a visit to her father and
dwells upon the riches, learning and
wisdom of"a youth he knows.
If he fltids both sides willing to consider the question he plies back and
forth between them with all the eagerness of a man anxious to drive a good
bargain. He knows that if he succeeds
he will get a nice little fee from each
family, and so he paints the many
charms of the young couple in glowing
terms. ,,,
He is not always'truthful, and oft-
times the bridegroom, who is not-allowed to see his future wife before the
ceremony finds that after the red cloth
an ugly old crone.
These instances of bad faith on the
part of the "go between" are fortunately rare, and usually he exhibits much
discretion in his ma tings.

Never had tbere been Buch a winter
In South Dusenbury.  What with mu-
sicales, lectures, socials and the like
the little village usually managed to
fill in the dark, cheerless gap between
harvest and sowing nicely.   But ibis
winter the felicities of village life had
been augmented by an' amazing nud
unparalleled nqmber of wedding anniversaries.  Wooden weddings?, tin weddings, crystal. weddings, had followed j
oue. another.in rapid succession until I
those who were blessed in the giving ;
were hardly less numerous than those
blessed jn the receiving.
Now, South Dusenbury contained Its
share, of spinsters, village parlance
which, being interpreted, signified that
the woman to whom the term was applied had lived twenty-eight years or
more���generally more���and was still
unmarried. To tbeir eternal credit be
It said tbat they rejoiced open hearted-
ly ln the marital anniversaries of their
fellow citizens and had contributed not
a little to the general atmosphere of
happiness which attended these functions.
No, not quite all. One exception-
one distinguished exception���must be
noted, Keziah Bottleby. Miss Bottleby
was a strong minded, tall, angular woman, an ardent church worker and
ready to turn her helpful hand to anything when the needs of the neighborhood required. But these tyedding an-'
nlversaries began to pall upon ber, and
by the time Deacon Thompson and
Mrs. Thompson had .celebrated their
silver wedding she was thoroughly disgusted. She lost no opportunity in letting that fact be known. Hers was a
trenchant tongue. Some'wereNamused;
more were made uncomfortable. But
there was no-other result. The anniversaries continued* just the same. Of
course this fact did not silence Miss
Bottleby. ...
"I tell ye," she said one afternoon at
a_meeting_pf_the_King'_a__Daughters, "it's

courage, and ho boldly mid tbat be

and tbt editor. Tbt latter, a small,

After viewing this scene John wis

The next few days were spent in
painting, and his married sister came
over and helped him put the house in
unwonted order. But she felt that he
had suddenly lost his mind. She was
confident of this fjtet -whtn a day or so
later HJtani came home with a new
suit of clothing and a new hat. But all
that he would rouebsafe was that he
had bougfit them for the party. Hiram
was ready, nnd the more he mused on
bis new resolution tbe more
minded he became.
The day of the "variety" came, nnd
tho villagers outdid themselves in.Jbeir
- .--iPi-neitv. Tliey reckoned to snetio/*
Miss Bottleby's tongue on the subject
of wedding anniversaries forever. The
little parlor was yiled with presents ot
all kinds, and all, including Miss Bottleby, wero radiant. Every, one, had a
regular good time, and when the guests
began to leave they assured her they
were ready for tho next "variety" any
time she chose to give it. Finally the
door closed on the last guest, and -Miss
Bottleby returned to tbe parlor. She
did not look at her presents. She was
thinking of how kind tbey all bad been
and was making nil sorts of resolutions
concerning her future relations witb
her neighbors. Then slip.'looked outvof
tho window. ;, ,s
"I wonder whatever became of Hiram Spinks," she said.
As in answer the bell rang and upon
opening the door there stood Hiram,
shaven, beard and hair trimmed and
new clothing.  Keziah gasped.
"Why, Hirnra, ye air late, ain't ye?

Floating Garden* In Mexico.
; While the City of Mexico is 8,000 feet
higher than sea level, tbere are in the
vicinity several lakes and marshy
tracts willed require extensive drainage
operations. The Viga canal Is one of
these great drainage systems, and upon it are numerous barges which transport farm and'garden produce from the
market gardens to the city. Flat bojt-
tomed bouts, propelled"by,.a"pole, convey 'posjjohgers to tho. floating gardens.
The gardens nro located upon marsh
land quito similar to the ttlle lands of
California., The soil Is composed of do-
cnyed reed and grass roots, being en-
tirojy of vegetable mold and quite fertile.' Ditches at frequent Intervals
drain tlio gardens and furnish means
of communication by canoes and smiill
boats to the larger canal dnd thus to
the city, Horo aro the groat market

As usual, Miss Bottleby was listened
to ln the most respectful silence, and
when she ceased speaking no one ventured a remark. Miss Bottleby gave a
contemptuous sniff and applied herself
to her needle. While she sewed on, the
glimmer of an Idea, shot through her
mind, nnd as she pondered and enlarged upon It the stern lines of her
face relaxed Into a broad smile. Yes,
she would do it. There was- no reason,
why she should not nnd many reasons
why she should. If so many persons
congratulated thcmselvos and, asked
others to join tnem simply because
they had boon married a score or so of
years why should she not be congratulated In remaining single a similar
period? Surely It was more difficult to
remain unmarried thnn to find a husband,   Vcs, sbe would do it.
In a day or two tbe villagers received
tho following Invltution:
".Miss Keziah Bottleby, having existed ln single blessedness for forty-five
yours, requests your presence at her
homo on Thursday, Mny 12, ot 8 o'clock
In the aftcrncon, the occasion being an
old maid's variety. Tea and doughnuts will be served, and presents may
bo stored In tho parlor."
Thoy were tho talk of the village,
these Invitations, and ovory one said
liow llko Miss Bottleby It wai. They
all meant to go, too, for tbey felt that
���he did deservo nomethlng for her long
yours of abnegation, Tbe general tendency wus to defeat her purpose by Ignoring tlie obvious sarcasm and pretending that thoy took hor seriously.
Hiram Spinks bad received an Invitation, nnd It bad struck a responsive
chord In hli heart for he, too, had en

Whistler , was. one day visited by a  foreign artist, an old acquaintance,  with whom Whistler bad not as yet  quarreled. He was received with gen-,  uihe" cordiality; and, 'artist-like,'he ran  round' the studio looking at everything.  One small picture seemed to charm him;  especially,.and toe.-saidi "Now,that, is  ���������one of your good .ones." "Doa'*t look at  it, dear boy," said Whistler airily/"it's'  not  finished."    "Finished!"  said' the':  "vfilffbfr '"WhynnrthoTnpgt carefully,  finished picture of yours tbat I have,  ever seen." t'Dd'n't look at it!" persisted Whistler. '"You are doing injustice to yourself,- you are doing injustice, tp my.picture, and you are doing injustice to me!" Tbe visitor looked'  bewildered, wben Wblstiei*, in a theatrical tone, f.-icd out: "Stop. I'll finish  it -iibSv!"' Then he procured a very  small camel's hair brush, fixed it on a  -long and stender handle, mued a little  speck of paint on bis palette, dipped  tbe tip of his brush into it, and then,  standing off from bis picture aqd with  the action of a fencer with bis rapier,  be. lunged forward and  touched, tbe  : picture in one spot-with his pigment.  ','NW it's finished," said he. "Now you  may'look at it." Tbis was all highly  dramatic,"and indeed very well acted,  but, as in the case of some stage plays,  the final act of Whistler's performance  ��������� proved.to.be, an anticlimax. v The for-  ,eign artist, took bis leave, .but, fi/iding  that he,had left.his umbrella behind  him, called for it next day., Tbe servant, recognizing liirn, told bim that Mr.  Whistler'h'iid-gone"out fortbe day, but  invited him' 'to go to tbe.'studio and  seek iiis umbrella. He went:there and  found it; but also.took tbe opportunity  of-having one,more, look at the; picture,  which had been "finished" for his special benefit the, day before, and then  he saw that tbe little dab of wet paint  which Whistler had so ' dramatically  put on he bad "afterward scrupulously  wiped off'again!���������Frederick Keppol in  .The..Header.. ,,.._��������� .,        ,  Hidden Water Snpply.

Mr Balfour as the  spokesman of the British nation  has throughout this matter spoken  with moderation and dignity.   Before war broke out he made the  world to understand that Britain  had treaty obligations with Japan,  and that if Japan were attacked by  two   nations   at   the   same   time  Britain was prepared to act on her  obligations. ������ This speech contained  no threat to Russia nor any encouragement to Jarmn.    In c >nse-  q uence of the coin nun ts ot many  English papers on the events th .t  have   transpired   since   the   com*  mencemeut of the war, the sensi  tiveness of the Russians have naturally been aroused.    Some weeks  back there was even talk of Russia's  desir������ to go to war with Britain ;  but the ab urdity of this- rumor was  -Bpparent-on the.very-fnce of-it.���������lias is now established, Russia was  unprepared for war with Japan, it  would have been   the   height  of  national stupidity for her to entertain the idea for a moment of going  to war with Britain.   Mr Balfour,  in his speech on the navy estimates  made the position of Britain and  her navy so plain, and the necessity for maintaining a fleet equal to  the combined fleets of France and  Russia or of any two other European Powers bo reasonable, as to meet  tho criticism even of the extremest  Little Bnglander.   The strength of  Britain must always be ix\ her * hips  ���������both ships of war ana those of  commerce.    A navy to cope with  Britain's neceisities must be strong  enough to give effectual protection  to her scattered possessions through  out the world.    The maintenance  of euch a fleet demands a system ot  heavy taxation, but this, though an  evil, is unavoidable, and is a result  of increased national responsibility,  The Prime Minister spoke of the  possibility of war as one whioh  Britain mint always be prepared to  faoe, although he had no reason to  say euoh a possibility wan immediate. All that the mother country  wanti to do, and is compelled by  Ihe necessities of the sHdation to  do, ii to keep her fleet as strong as  the combined fleets of Russia and  France. She does not want a navy  for offensive purposes, for ihe has  no designs upon other people's territory. Her policy now ii to not  upon tht? defennlve, and the wisdom  of thii policy will be recognised by  everyone. And we may be certain  that the vast majority of the British  will not grudge tlio -4Xj*mdUur������  wbich ii necessary if their country  is to continue to maintain ber  proud position.
