'tfss&t ; ,   ;,  L��� .   u j  >R some time pasl the condition ofthe  fll^f lead mining industry of this Province  been engaging the attention of mine*  ��r*f boards of trade, and the public gen-  iy. Many resolutions have, been passed  ig the Damimon Government to.assist  Industry, by placing a protective duty on  |ufactored lead. Before this will be done  t be made apparent to the ministers  the people of this Province are unani-  ily in favor of the duty and that it is es-  al to our welfare. It is difficult for peo-  o be of one opinion, or of any opinion, on  ject they do not understand, and one  only glance at the various newspaper  ents on the subject to see that it is as  ery far from being clear to many people,  ing to ample production in many parts  e world, the price of lead has materially  ned within the last six years, but the de-  for lead is still great and is growing,  feature of this case that calls for a change  t while our lead mines are practically  Canada is importing lead products from  in and the United States. What is  t is such a measure of protection as will  rage the refining and manufacture of  in Canada, secure the home market for  [own mines, and enable us to compete  the surplus in the markets of the world,  course this will at first slightly increase  OBt of lead to the consumers in Eastern  da, but on the other hand the miners of  sh Columbia pay higher prices for their  for the benefit of Eastern manufacture  PlfM^d merchants. Free trade as a practical  fSnfiiy for Canada has never been possible  L"^;J1e now definitely abandoned by its former  . ' -3 a tea. Then, since we accept protection  tiers should so apply it as to develop all  of the country, and we d�� not think  $is any Western conceit in th�� e&atemont  |her�� m mo part of Canada ��?hoss weUat��  tfital now I�� the whole country as British  I  .iftbia'fi.  e  prosperity  Province, a  rapidly growing population   and  an expanding market for the agricultural pro-  " ducts of the prairies and the manufactures of  the Eastern Provinces.  British Columbia has been anything but an  expenpe to Canada since its union. We are  certainly fairly entitled to all consideration  from the Cabinet when all we ask is some  measure of reciprocity in apportioning the  benefits and burdens of protection.  ? -  If one may judge by the cable reports of  his speeches in France, Sir Wilfrid Laurier  imagines himeelf the representative of French  Canadians only, or else he is giving a franker  expression than would be politic in British  America to what is evidently the general view  of French-Canadians that -they are the dominant factor in Canada. <���    -*  Britishers generally, and Canadians especially, are proud of the freedom on joyed by  the descendants of the cpnquerod French in  Canada ; we have no- objection to having one  for our political leader, but we do not enjoy  his-speaking in France as Premier of Canada  as if we were all French in our sympathies  and aspirations. Canada is thoroughly British and it were well that the world including  old France should,understand it bo.  Incidentally it is interesting though not  particularly pleasing to note that English observers thought Sir Wilfrid seemed more  American than British in his views of politics. Our graceful representative seems to the  public of Europe to resemble at different  times everything except a British Canadian,  We hope our Liberal friends are satisfied to  be so represented.  Some weeks ago we draw the attention of  our readers to the chaotic state of British Columbian politics. No supporter of the Government has quarrelled with our view of the case  as then expressed. If one of our many summer visitors should ask, as Canadians are in  the habit of doing, about the Legislature, its  contending parties and principles, the tnnjor-  ity supporting the ministers and other pertinent questions, who would be rash enough to  attempt to explain ? Who could tell what  was done at the last session of the House ?  Can we answer these questions even to ourselves ?  We have a Cabinet with only one vacancy  and that vacancy has existed for only a little  over two years ; one ��eat an the Houea has  bean vacant for a year, two of  atro in England find  a irot  al the  mk after, emd thaare am two mom  gome place or other ; there are.also over thirty  private members of the Legislature, less than  half of whom can be classified as either supporters or opponents of the Government.  If tke Legislature were abolished to-morrow.,  what difference would it make other than a  slight reduction ot expense a&d a little improvement of our credit f  The workers of tbe Province are meanwhile  doing their best each in his own sphere, and  when some need is urgently Mt they hold a  mass meeting, pass resolutions and communi*  cate them to Ottawa. It would be considered  a feeble joke to suggest asking the Legislator��  to consider anything. Is there no lanctiom  for that body to perform ? Oh, yes, many ;  but no one dreams of expecting sheir performance ; we have grown soused to imbecile ad-  ministration in the last four years, that we  Scarcely think of the possibility of a change,  : Now, this apathy is no wholesome and dan-  gerous ; We need at leaH gdtne man element of  provincial finances as we ne&er did before,  even employing a Montreal'capitalist to unravel our book-keeping will not serve bur  case ; oar credit is gone and we are heavily in  debt, not from natural poverty, but from reckless amateur financial administration. Let  us-advertise for a man with a head if we,have  hone here who will risk his reputation by allowing himself to be elected.  ] The Victoria Times ol the 27th ult. contains  an editorial on " The New Policy/' It is eur-  prising to find that this is a reference to Canada's present trade policy. What is new about  it ? Can it be that the Times imagines that  the Government has wiped out or is going to  wipe out " the last vestige of protection " ?  And yet there is something pleasing in this  quaint editorial; it is deliciously reminiscent  of the Liberal speeches of ten years ago and  earlier. It is just possible that it io an old editorial reprinted by mistake. The National  Pqlicy is a failure! Canada wants Free  Trade I' What about Israel Tarte's promise of  more protection ? The Coneervatives are dismayed at the succese of the New Policy (we  don't know of a Conservative who haB. heard  of it yet) and will probably invent some new  scheme, perhaps of retaliatory, protection  against the United StateB. We, have heard  that suggested, not by any naughty Tory, but  by no less prominent a Liberal than John  Charlton, M. P., of the Joint High Cammis-  sion. By the way, can the Timm inform u��-  mhou that august conference will resume its  twice euspended activity ?  ,/we  IK  Fm�� Trad�� editorial.  nave -seen, no  k on the administration than this hal&tc  -9  UM  Si  i  -:,'$,  Tit*  4  "'z  v'  <��� r  A\  *a"I  1,*  11  .4  y  ,, I   -     ��(-r.,k     ,,,  1   ��  in   A   "   ���<   f  iU j i      a  h r- ^a*jJiJT^�� -st ���*r~ ^tjy��t.^jtfi i,T3mrgyMTjit,n^^j  terTS^i���V fligTPJ7!3ij3iTi'jTrili  rjmyMiiia7ft���Bw:^fc'i^fo^''M*^  (rtllfSSgffSIBIBBlgiias^^  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  It is a fact���none the lea* a fact because of  its apparent improbability���*hat there ia  a kind of childish pride which is a part of, if  not the creator of, a certain kind of incompetency that is as obnoxious to others as it is to  its possessors. If in the course of time this  incompetency could be realized in all its meaning by its possessore, it would not be such-a serious thing, but, inasmuch as it is seldom acknowledged, and, moreover, as its possessors  are not ingenious in concealing its obnoxious  influences, it is to be avoided rather than an-  tagonized. There are times that this pride,  by exertion of a tact that would be commendable in other cases, becomes so inexplicably  and yet inextricably blended with the eie-  ments of commercial transactions that it is  really the directing and controlling force, and  thus leads to loss, if not disaster, as many a  merchant can testify. Forced, therefore, to  admit that this potency has existed as trade  has beer sysletiaatic.ally conducted, it must  be evident to all that the extraordinary and  tireless strength that it displays is more to be  dreaded than anv of the adverse factors whose  influence is so dreaded that their inroads are  guarded against. S^ill, in applying the abstract attributes fo this nameless pride--name-  less "because egotism is to good a wrrd to apply  to it, and because it would be an intuit tb  arrogance Yo use the word in the same connection���individual trails, we can best appreciate  its malign effects.and influence.  The success of the unwarranted and childish pride referred*to is mainly, if   not wholly,  due te the credulity of the people.    Assurance  will win  with socnn  persons   where   modest  ability receives nothing but snubs.    The very  "cheek" or gall, or nerve, or whatever it may  be termed, that  enab es   unsuccessful men to  make others think   they can tell just how to  succeedIni business too frequently crowds merit  to the wall.    Our fore fathers maintained that  business that required brains as well as money,  and we believe that they were right. Of court?*,  that is an old-fashioned opinion, but we have  admitted that we are old-faehioned if measured  by the ideaB  of  those   whose  conceptions of  logical facts w a bewildering array of illogical  rhetoric.     We also adhere  to the theory that  ] money is simply the visible and practical, and,  j it must be admitted, very convenient and des-  ! irable evidence of intelligent business methods  that is, there could be  no money unless there  \. were brains in commerce.     The assurance, or  4 cheek, or gall, or whatever name the effrontery  SlS^^^s^'f incompetency may he called, can not create  ^,;;|^oney, and must*depeud upon its livelihood  IMj^'by its ingenuity to make others think that it  is gifted with that ability that'is back of every  successful enterprise ir* commerce. That there  are are men who apparently succeed by their  adroitness in  passing off cheek for  brains, is  J.I ^MUMr***""  I  no evidence that cheek possesses any commercial value, for there are men who succeed in  passing off spurious coins as genuine money.  Those who have genuine ability���that is, the  ability that cannot exist without the sustaining power of brains���may not be as competent  to bring out the fire-work features of trade  enterprises or display that versatility that enables a man to change his vocation with every  full moon, but they "get there just the same."  In brief, a cheeky but incompetent person  may talk pud'write most .entertainingly about  ��� ���'what is necessary to advancement in commerce," and may even "advance" for a period,  but it is the plotters who make a healthy trade  what it is, but who cannot handle trade firework?, who are essential to our trade welfare  and progress. r=  Walter S. Riblet has received the appointment of U. S. consular agent at Nelson, an office which has remained vacant since the resignation of E. C. Brown. The appointment  will be a popular one in Nelson.  Samuel M. Robins; superintendent of the  New Vancouver Coal Company, has returned  to Nanaimo from San Francisco, where he has  be*m investigating the conditions..-of -the fuel  ���oil and coal markets. Mr. "Robins believes  fuel oil has made serious inroads on the coal  trade, and that th** situation is verv grave. Ii  is found to be a cheaper fuel and there is  less bother with it than coal. Mr Robin,"  does not believe that the actual life of the coal  mining industry has been endangered. There  will always be a market for coal, but them  will not be so much demand upon 'it,as existed before fuel came prominently to the  front.  The implement agents and machinery deal  ers are reaping a rich harvest in the North*.  :west this year.    One  agent alone   is said   to  have orders aggreguing $20,000. The demand  is considerably greater than last year.  Frances Graham, the great contralto, is n����w  with the Tivoli Opera Company, which Hang  at the Victoria theatre Monday and Tuesday  evenings of this week. Frances Graham, who  is known off the stage as Mrs. W. F.  Brougham, was for several years a resident.of  Nelson. Two years ago she left here to join  the Tivoli company at San Francirco. For  the past eighteen months she been living in  the east, during which time she has been singing with several of the leading opera companies. It is now announced tbat she has been  especially engaged for the coming rond* tour  (f the Tivoli Opera Company. This popular  singer is well known to the world of music,  having sung in London, Dublin, Paris, and in  most of the large cities of the United States.  She is equally at home in grand or ' comic  opera, having one of the mo/t extensive repertoires of any dinger now before the public. A  series of good parts falls trt   her lot in th'e op-  fsSSS  Am  -Am  eras of the Tivoli curriculum. She is Dob  in The Serenade, and Peter in The Toymij^  Her connection with the company wiU"?  doubt add to its popularity. If. the Tit ^  company could be induced to come toNeU  Mrs. Brougham would receive a very hear  reception. ':  k, . - 1  t  The death of Hon. Joseph Royal, whichc^  enrred at Montreal last week, will ba derM  regretted .from one end of the Domiaioai.F  the other. Deceased was one of  most intellectual son*. Like the majoriuf��SJ  the lawyers of the French*Canadiart pWdc*|S^  he combined the profession of letter* withfeiilf  study and practice of law. After gridattiql-SS  fnttn college in 1857, Mr. Royal joined ib^^  editorial staff of La M(nerve, but in the mm-  time took up the study of law, and to  was called to the Quebec bar. In 1870,Hil*??S-  removed to Manitoba, and for over tratsiSS  years was a potent factor in the politically  that Province, and those were stormy yeawulpf��  the history of the Prairie Province. Bif-IS��  founded Leiteti$f a publication which pralSl|  tically moulded \he opinions of the Freaei  half breeds. Mr, Royal was foremost in eraj  political fight, and was succeamvelv Speate  of the Legislature, Provincial Secretary, Attorney-General and Minister of Public Wort  in the various administrations. In j879 Mr.  Royal wa* returned to the H jU#o oi G*%  tnons,-'..where' he continued to sit  til he wa* appointed Lieutenant*  ernor of ..the Northwest Territories. After  term of office expired he returned to M  treal and again engaged in journalism, W  at the time of his death niitoHn-ehief o!  [Minen-e. in politics he was a ConeemU*  and during the later years in Sir John  'MicdonaUr* life enjoyed the confidence ol  old chieftain.  It now turns out that Hun.  D-  M/KW  loyal British subject that be is. absented hi  self long enough from his other  arduous  ties to attend the coronation ceremonies. E  three or four hours out of a month is a (  sacrifice and   inconvenience to a busy ^  like Mr, Eberts, and certainly  King Kdw  will appreciate the loyal devotion of the<��  who so generously made the gift.

half of-wbat some  of the more ardent   supporters of the party anticipate, they may confuse the situation  considerably.    The  Revelstoke convention will be acting strictly within

among the many aspirants  for  that  exalted
office.    The  leader  should  be the man   who
when ^elected shows himself  most capable of
steering ths   party   clear of  the rocks  upon
which it has  been nearly  shipwrecked  more
than once.    But if the convention believes it
is absolutely essential  to  the   welfare  of the
party   that a   leader should  be   selected,   it
should also see to itthat the gentleman named
is provided with a safe  seat.    This  could   be
easily arranged with the Liberals, giving their
leader a seat unopposed and they in turn permitting the Conservative leader to have a seat
without opposition.    This would   permit   the
leaders of both parties to  devote   their  whole
time to the affairs of   the campaign.    If such
an arrangement could not  be made, ab >ut the
most foolish thing the Conservatives could do
would be to eelect a   leader.    Two  years ago
the Conservatives   decided upon   Mr. Charles
Wilson as their leader. Mr. Wilson is a man of
acknowledged ability   and was acceptable  to
the great majority of  Conservatives     But he
was not elected, and even if the Conservatives
,had had a majority in the House, it   is doubtful if   the Lieutenant-Governor - would  have
honored Mr. Wilson by calling upori   him   to
form a Government.    Of   the   Conservatives
now in the House the one   most  discussed   as
possessing the peculiar attributes  of a   leader
is Captain Tatlow, of Vancouver ; but   would
it be wise to antagonize other Conservatives in
the House by selecting the captain as leader ?
Would Col. Prior follow Captain Tatlow, and
the same question might be^ asked  of certain
other Conservatives now in  the  House.    The
next  campaign   will undoubtedly   be fought
out on party lines, and it will   be well for the
Conservatives to take  time   by the  forelock.
The course to be pursued by the convention is
plain.    It should place a  good  platform before the people, arrange a vigorous campaign
of organization, but care should be taken that
nothing ia done that will   antagonize any section of the party.    And  above all things, no
countenance should be given to the   mongrel
pothouse politicians who are doing everything
they can to create dissensions   in  the  party.
He  that is  not with   us body  and   soul  is
against us,  and   it   would   be better that the
Conservative party should, permit   this  election to go by default  Mian   that  it should secure a temporary advantage by the support of
any man or  set  of  men, who   would rather
reign in hell than serve in  heaven, and   who
for their own disreputable ends, would  drag
the party into a false  position.    Let the delegates to that  convention   do their duty fearlessly and in such a manner ae to  command
the respect of the electorate of British Colum-
bia.    The voters will do the rest.
The Liberals meet Monday evening and thd
Conservatives on Tuesday evening. This will
be a great convenience to any gentleman who
may happen to belong to both associations.   :
The   Harry   Lindley company   will   commence a   week's-engagement at  the Nelson-
Opera   House   next   Monday  evening.   The
opening pieco will be Tennyson's 3-act drama,.
" Dora."    Mr. Lindley is, well-known to Nel-*
son theatre-goers and will no doubt  receive a- ,;'r'\
hearty reception.
The  tramway company  stopped their car
service Sunday evening, and it is not definitely
determined whether the company will resume
operations or  abandon  the  franchise.-  It  is
assumed that the determination to discontinue
operations was prompted by the  adverse vote <
on the by-law Wednesday of last  week,  and
that the cars have made their last  trip, so far1
as Nelson is» concerned.    Should this  be the ^
case it will be  regarded as a  calamity.    By   .
the terms of the tramway  charter, cira must
be run ten months in every year.    Already fop
two months or for nearly°two months this.year:
the cars have not been  run,  and   the present
stoppage is taken to mean that   the company
intends to abandon the franchise.    Some wild-
eyed economists suggest the purchase of the ■
tramway .by the city,  in   which event the al-
. dermen   would be  given   an   opportunity of
shewing what   they  know  about running a
street railway.    I know of one alderman who
could be depended upon to run   a  plow  sue-
ce.^sfully, but I rather think he would make a
conspicuous failure of a tramway, and this is
said without any desire to cast a reflection on
respectable farm   hands.    The scheme is impracticable.
James Dunsmuir will not be called upon to
pay excess baggage on all the honors he received from his King.

'  7f I  nl  \<  ��  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  ',!'���"'��*�����  ,��� jUf i-*****0"**^'  �������"  HEN I first knew Gwendoline Gilbert I  very nearly fell .'.in love with her.  Gwendoline Gilbert was Hygeia herself. She  was a parson's daughter ; she hadn't a penny  in the world. Sir John Tomlinson was the  member for Ratcliff Highway and had made  pots of money by the adulteration of the poor  man's beer. He came, he saw, he conquered ;  of course he did. Thej were married, they  started on their honeymoon"; and I went for  a fortnight to Home Bay in a huff.  In spite of her beauty and her husband's  millions Gwendoline was not altogether a social success.  "Look here, Lady Tomisbson," said Sir  John (healways said Lady Tomlinson), "you  don't shine in society ; you're not a dancing  woman, nor a talking woman, nor a political  woman, and you ain't literary. I wish to heaven you'd develop some sort of individuality  of your own, Lady Tomlinson."  Lady Tomlinson retired instantly to her  boudoir and had a good cry. For three whole  days did Lady Tomlinson brood and rnedi-  tate^and then she sent for   Mr. Pargiter,  the  Mr^yPargiter hastened to present himself at  Palatial Crescent.  *^ Mr. Pargiter," said Lady Tomlinson, "I  want to paint���I want to paint in oils."  :vp:^:^h, certainly, Lady Tomlinson/' said Mr.  Pargiter, and he 6miled and rolled his eyes  arid rubbed his hands and bowed Mr. Pargiter was too much of a gentleman ever to  contradict a lady, besides being a popular art  teacher with a highly aristocratic connection.  Therefore he would have said, "Oh, certainly," if Lady Tomlinson had wanted to learn  to dance on the slack wire.  "I want you to give me lessons, Mr. Pargiter," said Lady Tomlinson. "I mean to exhibit at the Royal Academy," said Lady Tomlinson. "I mean to be a distinguished amateur and I want you to show me how and give  me lessons, Mr. Pargiter."  4< Oh, certainly," said Mr. Pargiter.  " Pray name your terms," said Lady Tomlinson. " Expense is no object, but I want  the whole thing to be a secret from my husband and my friends."  Next day at 10 precisely, a four-wheeled  cab containing Mr. Pargiter, a large ease!, several canvasses, numerous brown paper parcels  and a lay figure, drew up at the Tomlinsors'  house in Palatial Crescent. Mr. Pargiter was  shown at once into her ladyship's boudoir.  "Now, Mr. Pargiter," said Lady Tomlinson  when she had welcomed the artfst, " I should  like you to paint me an ideal   .ead."  Mr. Pargiter stared at Lady Tomlinson and  suggested that the usual way was to begin by  drawing from what he callad 4* the round " in  charcoal.  " Mr. Pargiter," said Lady Tomlinson, " you  wouldn't refuse to oblige a lady. I'm sure I  shall learn much more easily by seeing you  work.    My   idea,  you   know,   was that you  I  ���should paint and I should look on���just at  first, you know, till I get my hand in."  " So Mr. Pargiter began to paint the head of a  rustic. Mr. Pargiter was accustomed to dispose of heads of this description to Wiggles,  the fraraemaker and picture-dealer.  11 I want you to leave the background till  the very last," said Lady Tomlinson.  "Oh, certainly," replied the artist.  It took Mr. Pargiter four sittings to finish  that rustic head. When it was quite done he  ramarked to Ladv Tomlinson that there was  nothing more to do than to'smudge in a back-  ground of burnt sienna.  "That's where I come in," said Lady Tomlinson " If you'll do the edge of the background in all the little in-and-out places  round the edge, I'll finish it."  f a ...  They carried out that simple programme.  " Now? there's nothing left but to sign it, I  suppose?" said her ladyship.  " Exactly so," said Mr. Pargiter ; and ne  took a little squeeze of ivory bHck' on the  point of a small brush and was about to affix"  the magic name of Pargiter.  *��� Let me try,"'said her ladyship. She took  the brush from Mr. Pargiier's hand and in  \ reat sprawling letters she wrote iu the right  hand corner of the  picture, " Gwen   Tomlin  son.  o  u Madam," said   Mr.   Pargiter   with a   low  bow, when ehe had   finished,  "you  are a  mus.  ��  And then she placed an envelope in the artist's hand. " I can trust you, Mr. Pargiter ?"  she said, in tho*e soft, purring tones of hers.  Mr. Pargiter laid his hand upon   his heart,  gave Lady Tomlinson what looked very like a  wink and assured her, in solemn accents, that  she could.  Two days afterward, Lady Tomlinson was  "at home." I was there ; I am an art critic  by profession, you know. On a green plush  stood the rustic head in an eight-inch gilt  frame.  u What do you think of it, Mr. Scorcher ?h  bleated that innocent lamb, Lady Tomlinson,  to me. "I've ju*t got it home from my  framemakers ami it's th*? first of my efforts  that I've had the hardihood to show to mv  friends."  I compared it to Greuze. I said it reminded me of Mme. Vigee le Brun and various other artists. Next spring they hung it  at Burlington house ; they hung that Pargiter, and we all went into ecstasies at the private show.  Sir John Tomlinson is justly proud of his  wife. She is an artistic light now. She has  only got to take a young artist by the hand  and his fortune's made. ���  II I'm very fond of Lady Tomlinson," said  Mr. Pargiter to me the other day; she "throws  a great deal of work in my way."  SHORT STORIES  In   pronouncing   sentence, a  Scotch  judge  once added :    " Ye did not only bill and mur  der the man, and thereby tak  uable life, but ye did  push,  the lethal weapon through  t  his regimental  trousers,- which  party of His Majesty."  e away Ik n  ���belly bail?  were t her-'  Curran said to Father O'Leary, the ��it.J "  priest of his day, " I wish you were St.Peu��\  "Why?" asked   O'Leary.     " Because," 4-  Curran, " you  would have the keys of hetij  and could let me in."    "It  would be bet  for you," said O'Leary, " thatl had the it  of the other place."    "Why ?" asked Curru^?  " Well, then I could let you out."  Samuel Foote, the  English  actor, was  day invited for  a   few momenta into acHpi*5  where he was a  stranger.    Left alone a 0_i&k_��  '���   yi$  uuy he did not seem quite at  his erne.  T  *��� mm it.

Whereupon Feot4look|p  ing around with playful suspicion, and hfrg%  rtedly thrusting his handkerchief back ie&||��  his pocket replied : "Thank you, my lofifff  thank you ; you know the company b$tte|L  than I do."  At one of the great London hospitals a  storage was being constructed in 'conoeclfc  with the post-mortem room, and thesecreUfj  of the hospital, on going to see how ihe w&fcj  wa���� getting on, found that the chamber wtf  being fitted with double doors���and  small size���instead of one large door  made enquiries as to the reason for this deri  tion from the original plan, when the cW  carpenter, who wa* superintending the wort  replied : " Oh, sir, we are putting in doute  door* and a wooden partition in order toke*?  the sexes apart I"  MMk_4|WilMi<rU*l��M  Poor Maurice Barrymore, who still breathy  but  long   ago  died fc-top,  had perhaps tht  most ready wit of any man in  the dramas  profession.    Breaking   down one spring, w  betook himself to the Catskill mountains h\  repairs. Three other men were in the smoking  car with him, and they soon fell  into converj  sation.     "I'm   an   overworked   actor, b��w  Barrymore, " and am going to the .mountain  to build myself up, if I oan>V;:^r��';>^  nets," said   another, " and  played out J m  yourself,   I'm going  to the--hilla   for rest,  " And 1," said the third, "am  an  enginetfj*  broken-down one, and   on. the same erran ���  " And you 1" said Barrymore, Btniliuplj to I  fourth man.

WHEN I first knew Gwendoline Gilbert I  very nearly fell in love with her.  Gwendoline Gilbert was Hygeia herself. She  was a parson's daughter ; she hadn't a penny  in the world. Sir John Tomlinson was the  member for Rate! iff Highway and had made  pots of money by the adulteration of ihe poor  man's beer. He came, he paw, he conquered ;  of course he did. The^ were married, they  started on their honeymoon ; and I went for  a fortnight to Home Bay in a huff.  In spite of her beauty and her husband's  millions Gwendoline was not altogether a social success.  " Look here, Lady Tomlinson," said Sir  John (healwa3*8 said Lady Tomlinson), "you  don't shine in society ; you're'not a" dancing  woman, nor a talking woman, nor a political  woman, and you ain't literary. I wish to heaven you'd develop some sort of individuality j  of your own, Lady Tomlinson." s  Lady Tomlinson retired instantly to her  boudoir and had a .good cry. For three whole  days did Lady Tomlinson brood and meditate, and then ehe sent for Mr. Pargiter, the  painter.       ,  Mr. Pargiter hastened to present himself at  Palatial Crescent.  " Mr. Pargiter," said Lady Tomlinson, " I  want to paint���I want to paint in oils."  " Oh, certainly, Lady Tomlinson," said Mr.  Pargiter, and he smiled and rolled his eyes  and rubbed his hands and bowed Mr. Pargiter was too much of a gentleman ever to  contradict a lady, besides being a popular art  teacher with a highly aristocratic connection.  Therefore he would have said, "Oh, certainly," if Lady Tomlinson had wanted to learn  to dance on the slack wire.  "I want you to give me lessons, Mr. Pargiter," said Lady Tomlinson. "I mean to exhibit at the Royal Academy," said Lady Tomlinson. " I mean to be a distinguished amateur and I want you to show me how and give  me lessons, Mr. Pargiter."  " Oh, certainly," said Mr. Pargiter.  " Pray name your terms," said Lady Tomlinson.    " Expense is no  object, but   I   want  the whole thing to be   a secret  from my husband and my friends."  Next day at 10 precisely, a four-wheeled  cab containing Mr. Pargiter, a large easel, several canvasses, numerous brown paper parcels  and a lay figure, drew up at the Tomlineors'  house in Palatial Crescent. Mr. Pargiter was  shown at once into her ladyship's boudoir.  "Now, Mr. Pargiter," said Lady Tomlinson  when she had welcomed the artfst, "I should  like you to paint me an ideal   lead."  Mr. Pargiter stared at Lady Tomlinson and  suggested that the usual way was to begin by  drawing from what he callad '* the round " in  charcoal.  " Mr. Pargiter," said Lady Tomlinson, " you  wouldn't refuse to oblige a lady. I'm sure I  shall learn much more easily by seeing you  work.    My   idea,  you   know,   was that you  should paint and I should look on���just at  first, you know, till I get my hand in."  " So Mr. Pargiter began to paint the head of a  rustic. Mr. Pargiter was accustomed to dispose of heads of this description to Wiggles,  the framemaker and picture-dealer.  " I want you to leave the background till  the very last," said Lady Tomlinson.  " Oh, certainly," replied the artist.  It took Mr. Pargiter four sittings to finish  that rustic head. When it was quite done he  ramarked to Lady Tomlinson that there was  nothing more to do than to smudge in a back-  ground of burnt sienna.  " That's where I come in," said Lady Tomlinson " If you'll do the edge of the background   in   all    the little   in-and-out  places  C. 0  round the edge, I'll  finish it."  They carried out that simple programme.  " Now, there's nothing left but to sign it, I  suppose ?" said her ladyship.  ���" Exactly so," said Mr. Pargiter ; and ne  took a little squeeze of ivory bl^ck on the  point of a small brush and was about to affix  the magic name of Pargiter.  *% Let me try," said her ladyship. She took  the brush from Mr. Pargiier's hand and in  * reat sprawling letters she wrote in the right  hand corner of the  picture, " Gwen   Toralin-  der the man, and thereby take away hisy-  uable life, but ye did pueh, thrust or }^;  the lethal weapon through the bellybac^  his regimental trousers, which were.-thefrl  party of His Majesty."  1  Curran said to Father O'Leary, the  priest of his day, " I wish you were St. Peter.8-  "Why?" asked   O'Leary.     " Because," ^  Curran, " you  would have the keys of heaved;  and could let me  in."., "It   would be betUj.  '"'  for you," said O'Leary, "that I had the kejif||||  of the other place." " Why ?" asked Cwiufxg|  " Well, then I could let you out."  son.  ��  " Madam," said Mr. Pargiter with a low  bow, when she had finished, " you are a genius."  And then she placed an envelope in the artist's hand. " I can trust you, Mr. Pargiter ?."  she said, in thoee soft, purring tones of her?.  Mr. Pargiter laid his hand upon his heart,  gave Lady Tomlinson what looked very like a  wink and assured her, in solemn accents, that  Q ���     r.  she could.  Two days afterward, Lady Tomlinson was  " at home." I was there ; I am an art critic  by-profession, you know.' On a green plush  stood the rustic head in an eight-inch gilt  frame.  "What do you think of it, Mr. Scorcher ?'*  bleated that innocent lamb, Lady Tomlinson,  to me. "I've ju*t got it home from my  framemakers and it's the first of my efforts  that I've had the hardihood to show to my  frienda."  I compared it to Greuze. I said it reminded me of Mme. Vigee le Brun and various other artists. Next spring they hung it  at Burlington house ; they hung that Pargiter, and we all went into ecstasies at the private show.  Sir John Tomlinson is justly proud of his  wife. She is an artistic light now. She has  only got to take a young artist by the hand  and his fortune's made. *  " I'm very fond of Lady Tomlinson," said  Mr. Pargiter to me the other day; she "throws  a groat deal of work in my way."  SHORT STORIES  In   pronouncing  sentence, a Scotch   judge  once added :    " Ye did not only bill and mur-  Samuel Foote, the English actor, was o����5��3  dav invited for a few momenta into a cluS  where he was a stranger.
