Sent -S-St  NOTE AND COMMENT  The report, of thu Oiittirin Httri*_iu of  Minos fur ISO" recently issued contains soinc* statistics which furnish  food for thought. While ij_121,&18  worth of i~olcl wus proilnccd, it, cost in  \vii|fus tiliiiii* $1)1,210 to get it. On the  other h.'inel tt totnl value* in iron wtis  t-iken out'of $_1.~3,7S0, which only cost,  .~t7,000 in vvsisi's, while the waives  paid for $1.,9.~~,2~.~ worth' of rellncd  petroleum wore only $100.7-10.  Thu your hook for 1897 gives some  very striking statistics under the head  of education. For instance the expenditure per head in each province  for education shews, some -startling  disparities. While Quebec, which is  the lowest spends $1.0(., JM.initobn.  wliich is the highest, spends ijii 13, or  nearly four times the amount, with  Ontario it bad second with $1.90.  British Columhia is fifth with SI.00. '  The Herald is Rind to note from  Mr. Peterson's letter in its last issue  that the Gold Commissioner has  power to clear obstructions, fiom the  streets, laues anil alleyways of this  town and is usinfj it. liis' action in  this matter will clear the ground for  the coming city council. The IIi'iiald  hopes to see it comprehensive and impartial, even extending to government buildings and fences, if they infringe, as the letter in question states  they elo infringe, on the ro.idvv.iy allowances of the town.. Because, if he  does not do this, there is no question  but that the first council will find this  duty devolve on them tind their  ofiicials. Quite recently--the old  smelter boar.ling house obtruding tit  least two foet on the, sidewalk has  been given it new face, so'that the  oldest timer would scarcely know it,  in the most childlike confidences that  these things will .continue- forever.  But .it will ultimately havo to .-lie  moved back to its legal position and  the time to do it-was, one naturally  would think, while these startling renovations were taking place.-- ,  The Province "acts', the ".part'of. tlie  "candid friend" of the Liberal government in this province. - In its current  number it deprecates that excessive  abuse of the C. P. R., which was such  a stock cry, and for that matter such  an effective one, with.the stump orators of the party of political purity  before the last election. It points out  lhat British Columbia owes its present  prosperity very largely to that much  abused lint*. As a matter of fact a  good deal more than even the material  prosperity of the whole of Canada is  due to the construction of.the C. P. It.  Th"e=wlfole~~6f~the~i'irest'iit~national  sentiment, which has become such a  striking feature of the Dominion today, has sprung up since that road wns  completed and is distinctly traceable  to its construction. In the old davs  people, out west, west of the Red RivtT,  did neit consider that they were in  Canada at all. Canada with them  meant what we now call "the east,"  and even in Ontario there was nr such  thing as a national Canadian sentiment  much less any feeling of pride in the  Empire. The favorite attitude of  young Canadians in those days was  distinctly favorable to annexation. If  to-day-Canada is, tis Sir Wilfred Laurier assures with un almost "damnable  iteration" a nation, it is distinctly due  to that great enterprise which his  party opposed tooth anel nail when .it  was first mooted unci which they never  ceased to sneer at and abuse up to the  List few months. The Grit leaelers are  ieap'mg;whc*re they did not sow and  where they did their best to prevent  anybody else sowing. It was the  "national highway" that made the  "nation" of to-day a possibility.  Klondike.  W. M. Bean came down on Friday  from eioing development work on the  Klondike claim, in which Messrs. XV.  H. Crage and F. B. Wells are interested. Thirty feet of an open cut hits  been run ar.d the lead has widened out  from 18 inches to three feet under development. Large chunks of two or  throe hundred pounds weight of solid  iron ore are encountered in the lead.  There is a second lead on the property  on which there arc indications of a  still larger hotly of ore than in the  lower one which is being developed.  The ledge on which this claim and the  Yukon is staked is situated on Carnes  Creek and_ is traceable through the  country rock, which is slate, for over a  milo, _  If you miss seeing Sammy Johnson,  the fjoy "Coon," you'll only regret it  once and that will be always.  THE CANOE RIVER.  A Fine Open Valley Drained by a Gold  Bearing Stream.���������From Big Bend to  Peace  River.  Mr. .Sam. Gough has just returned  froin ti two years absence: em Canoe-  river. lie came down the river in a  canoe boat, in wliich he left Beaver on  the trip two years ago. Mr. Gough  has a considerable acquaintance with  the west. He carried despatches from  Prince Albert to Saskatoon during the  rebellion of 1885 and has travelled over  the Athabasca, Great Slave Lake and  Peace River countries since. His  knowledge of the country immediately  north of here extends lo Peace River.  Speaking of lho Canoe River country,  where he has heen prospecting for the  last two years he describes tho Columbia fiom the. end r.f llio pack trail, tit  Goldhtreant, to the mouth of Canoe  river tis easily navigable by .boat, or  small steamer. Thu mouth of Canoe  river is a wide valley, five or six miles  wide, covered with an abundance of  high grass, through which the Canoe  and Wood rivers empty in,the Columbia about 400 yards apart. Aleing  Wood river lies the old II. li. Go's,  trail through the Rockies to the Athabasca river. C-inoe river is navigable  by boat for 00 miles fiom the mouth,  along the"whole of which one can polo  either up or cluvvn without difficulty.  Thi'_firi*t 10 miles runs through an open  flat "through which a. road coiilil.be  constructed .with hub little grading  except on a few side hills. After '10  miles the mountains close in and the  banks become more rugged and glaciers are frequent. Sixty miles up,  a canyon is met with, runn'ng for  seven miles of nnnavigable vvater.after  which one can take a boat clear up to  the head waters of the river. A portage of 12 or 1_ miles below or about  eight above the Canyon reaches the  Fraser river, which runs through fiat  and swampy lands as far as Tete Jaune  Cache. The portage presents no difficulty, as the rivers tire only, separated  by a,low divide. AtTele.J_a.nne Cache  the, Fraser strikes into1 the mountains.  There* are nei_obs_|-acles to__the "passage  cf a boat clear down the Fraser lo the  portage by which the Parsnip' is  reached and the Parsnip ilselC is a fine  largo river running into the Peace  river. - SUH the Fraser is pretty difficult water requiring careful navigation. Fine gold is found almost any  where on Canoe river. Mr, Gough  found the best prospects for placer on  the second creek on the right hand  going up'the river,which empties about  12 miles from the mouth. There are  good indicationsof quartz, and a fine  strike of copper was made by him on  .Wood river. There are hot springs of  very high temperature just below tl.e  canyon, where a man called Jackson  has built a shack. Mr. Gough has left  his three partners to winter on the  first creek which runs into tho Canoe  river on the left, 20 miles from the  mouth. His visit to town is for tlie  purpose of getting his eyes treated.  WRESTLING AND BOXING.  Exhibition of the Manly Art in Peterson's  Hall.  Last Monday an exhibition of boxing and wrestling was given in Peterson's hall to .a good size crowd. The  first number on the programme Nyus a  glove contest heitween W. IO.Holloway  and F. L. Lemon, best out of three'  reiunds. Lemon handled himself in a  way which was a good deal of a surprise, but riolloiv.iy hail the best of the  conti'st. The wrestling match then  came off between W. E. Holloway and  Billy Gatt, a man fiom the coast and  middle weight champion of that region.  The match was best two out of three  falls, catch-as-eatcli-can. The first fall  went to Gatt, time 0 min. 10 sec, the  second to Holloway, time 2 min., and  ths third,, which was well contesti'd.  lasted 10 min. 30 sec-mid finally went  in favor of Gatt. Holloway was down  five times before his opponent, finally  dispose'd of him. The weights e>f the  contestants were Gatt, 185 lbs., Holloway 145 lbs. The Columbia Orchestra  filled up the intervals with some excellently rendered selections.;  Holloway and Gatt are matched for  $100 a side to wrestle again next Wednesday evening, in Peterson's hall.  Conelitions of the match are the same,  best two falls out of three, catch-.is-  cateh can.  On Monday it French Canadian barber named D. Conrti'marche was committed for trial tit the next, assizes for  stealing,~ 10 from a woman of Hit* town,  who goes by the name of Cany, lie  claims that the woman was drunk and  gave him the money to keep anil that  he blew it in.

Vera group, on the  Home ledge containing three claims,  and the Brooklyn group.  The Glenside group litis four parallel  loads each from two to four feet wide  running lhrough the claims.  Thoy have run in a tunnel of SO feet  on one side of the leads, which averages ijlOO, and on another they have  exposed a line body of first class shipping ore. They have also erected a  good substantial cabin. On the Vera  group on the llorne ledge they have  three parallel leads from two to 10 feet  wide and have run in a tunnel 170 feet  to tap oneof tho leads.'The indications  are excellent for showing up a gooel  body ot eiru, the upper lead has a fine  showing of gray copper. These claims  are located on tho North Fork of the  Lardeau and the trails leading to thum  are very good. On the Brooklyn group  on Canyon Creek, at the foot of the  lako they have driven iu a tunnel of 25  feet and have built good trails and a  cabin. The members of the Commonwealth Co. are well satisfied with their  summci's work,tind have every reason  to believe that they, have good properties and that next summer .vill see  them ou lhe shipping list.  The Ethel and Keystone mineral  claims were located on June 3, 1S97 on  Broken Hill, on the north side of the  Glacier Basin, 2' miles from Tront  Lake City. These claimsjire favorably  situated, plenty of timber and water  and free from snow sl'des, they have  a wonderful showing and reports fro.in  mining men who have visited them  say that there is no doubt that the  "Ethel and Keystone tire very rich  claims, in. fact one very seldom sees  their equal. They have an open cut of  Io feet on the Ethel, exposing- a pay  streak of.seven feet consisting mostly  of dry-ore such as. chloride of silver,  black sulphuri'ts, gray copper nnd  copper stilphurots. The assay they  had went 2.-100 ounces in silver $7 gold  and 15 per cent copper., Some 20 tons  of ore are now lying on the dump.  The Wagner group consists of six  claims, the Lai do, Duncan, Princess  Marie, Queen Mary, Frances Jewell  and Lucille K. and is, located at the  head of Hall Creek about 1-1 miles from  Trout, Lake. This pioperty adjoins  tlie Abbott group .and has been undergoing since it was bonded, a considerable amount of development. The lead  Avhich can-be distiiictly_traced_thi*oiigi___  the different claims, is about 20 feet  wide and carries a silver lend ore which  assays from 100 to -100 ounces silver anil  from 110 to 73 percent, lead. The great  bulk of the work has been done on the  Duncan and consists of a tunnel 1C0  fe.-et in length, and a shaft 00 feet in  depth besides crosscuts. These latter  have exposed the pay streak and show  it to contain 2". feet of clean ore and 7  feet of concentrates. Some assays  were taken here and show the clean  cue to run from 1~0 to 100 ounce's silver  and 0.*i percent, lead. Of the six claims  the* Lattlei and Duncan were bonded to  Rugh, Bain and Johnson for .~l~.0O0.  Three of the payments have already  been made and the other one falls due  on the 1st of January next, and from  the satisfaction with which the bonders regard the property theie is not  the shadow ejf a doubt but that the  final payment, will 1)0 made.  The Black Eagle and Sunset are situated on Seven Mile Creek about three  miles above Fi*rguson anil are bonded  to Vancouver parties. Some S~00  wot th of wen k has been done, mostly  in stripping and crosscnttiug and litis  shown the vein to be about four feet  wide carryinga paystreak of six inches.  Tht; ore is high grade'and runs on an  average of 00 ounces silver, SI0 golel  and 00 per cent. lead. The original  locators were Messrs. Olcsen, Stuidin  and Jacobson.  The 1-tannockburii group of claims  situated at the head of Hall Creek are  looking very well. The lead has been  stripped for a tlistance of over 1,000  feet, and shows it. to vary from two to  five feet of clean ore. Assays run 50  ounces silver. ijSS gold and 42 per cent,  lead. The ore on the Buckeye, ot.e of  thegionp, runs higher in silver, assaying 210 ounces.���������Trout Lake Topic.

PRESS GANG METHODS  (From the Calgary Herald)  If report speaks truly the workmen' oii the - Crow's Nest Pass aro  being swindled    right    and   lett.  Report may be wrong, but it says  that these men, the majority of  whom are from a great distance,  engaged themselves   to ��������� the   contractors   on    the   understanding  that they would receive free transportation, aud that they are now  made to forego part of their wages  to . pay for   said   transportation.  Report, we know, is liable to be  erroneous, but it says  that they  were told, on engaging, that board  and lodging would be at the rate  of $3.50 per week, but found on  arrival that it was $5.00.   Report  may be, as it   sometimes is,  the  product of .a wild and vicious imagination, but it affirms that the  ���������working   month   on   the   Crow's  Nest  Road consists   of  31   days.  Report says these things, and pertinaciously repeats them from day  to day.   Yet no one rises to make a  denial.     We  come to the -funny  part'   when    we   remember   that  numbers    of    these    men    were  brought here" with, the idea that  they would become settlers.   They  were induced to leave thoir native  laud not merely because there was  was prospective work- for a year  on the line, but because they were  led to believe that at the end of  that time they would have at their  backs some little capital to help  them in making a fresh start in  life under better conditions than  they could hope for at home.   This  suggests an idea which we humbly  . beg to lay before the Miuister of  the Interior-for his consideration.  It  is  nothing  less   than   a  new  system of immigration.    Let us,  -^-for-thesakeybf^- brevity ,-call-it-the  press  gang  system.     The    press  gant_;s,   as  our    readers   will   remember, were the means by which  the navy, in th6 last great war  with France, sought, to recruit its  impoverished ranks.   The' method  was simplicity itself. *- You sent on  shoie' a few of  the   toughest  of  your   crew  with   instructions   to  bring off to the ship any man or  men likely to prove sailors.    If the  man or,men thus selected objected  ���������he might  have objections, you  know���������lie was to be knocked on  the head or otherwise made tractable.    Now the scheme   we pro-  jxjso to Mr. Sifton is in the main  after the fashion of the press gang.  But there is one difference.    To  forcibly transport suitable Europeans to this country might rouse  the ire of their respective govern  merits  and   would   therefore   be  dangerous.    What we propose is  tbat, by such blandishments and  enticements as immigration :igents  can devise, they shall be induced  to seek our hospitable shores aud  that then, the door of   the9trap  being closed, we "hould proceed to  divest   them   of  such   means   of  returning as they might possess or  earn, in other words, knock them  on the head.    Thus we shall, by  one stroke, enrich ourselves and  people the country with a "happy  and contented class of settlers."  Agento :  RAM LAL'STEti  COMPANY  Agents :  Victoria Powder Oo.

It was accidental, T believe; but  I shall never forget the incident. It  wan over In a moment; but, while  tlmt moment lasted, tho scene was terrible. His face changed, fierce linger  flamed from his eyes. He shook the  white hand from him us though It had  been a  viper.  "You forget!" he cried in a voice  so cold and hard that I recognized It  with difficulty; and, shuddering, white,  trembling, she shrank away from him.  "Good-night, Miss Forster," said Sir  Rudolph, abruptly. "I hope you will  make yourself as happy as you can."  He was gone before I had time to  reply.  Lady Culmore stood quite still for a  few moments;; then she tore the jewels from her hair, from ho'r fleck, from  her arms, and dashed them upon the  ground.  "Am I so hateful, so horrible," she  cried, "that he will not look at me,  that I may not touch him? Oh, heaven,  am I so hateful,.so loathsome as that?"  ���������Suddenly she remembered my presence, and looked at me with' a wild,  passionate despair that touched my  very  heart.     I   went -to   pick   up   the  SHE  REGARDED ME CRITIC'LI, Y.  beautiful gems strewn upon the ground.  -1  laid   them.   a glittering,   magnificent  mn.SK,   on   the   table.     She   came  up  to  them  with   a  half-shamed  face:   ���������  "How passionate I am, Miss Forster!" she said. "What can you think  of me?" ' "' '���������  "I have had no time to think at all  yet."  I replied.  Then she walked to one of the large  mirrors, and stood before it for some  minutes In silence.  "Miss Forster. come here," she said,  afler she had looked long, and earnestly nt herself.. " *  I went to her. and we stood side by  side.'"   She   regarded   nie   critically.  "You are beautiful," she said, slowly,  ""on are dark as the daughters o������  sunny Siiain, ar.d your eyes are .like  dusky .velvet���������no. they arc like purple  jhcart's-ense; but you are not so beautiful as I am." She turncel to me  liorcely and clutched my hands. "Toll  ;ne," she cried���������"you have hael time to  judge���������tell me���������am I not a. woman  whom any man could love?"  -"Yes," I replied, quickly, half fiisht-  cned by her strange manner.  "Look at my arm," she ^continued.  "If any other man hael been In his  place, he would have kissed it; and ho  ."flung it from him!"  . I had no time to 'answer.

What was the  shadow where all shoulel have been  bright? I bad been tired before, but  .the mystery, and novelty had so excited and bewildered me that I could  not rest, I could not sleep. Surely no  one had ever spent a stranger Christmas Eve  than   this?  l drew aside  the hangings.   Ah, mo,  "the sweet, white world that lay outticle,  the beautv of the Christmas night-sky  and golden stars ! I could not hear the  bells,   although   I   knew   they    would  chime until past midnight; and I know  " how the music ot them would rise and  -fall   over  the   trees,   would   die   away  across the snow.   I should have wept  in sheer  desperate  pity  for  my    own  i&neliness  had  It  not  been    that    my  tiic-Ughts  were    so    deeply    engrossed  jvitli the mystery of ~Jllamere.ri  I went to sleep at last, thinking of  the bfeautlfui face of the wife, of the  noble face of the husband wondering  what shadow, what sorrow lay between them.  -" Christmas morning dawned bright  a-nd beautiful. I drew near the win-  ' dow and looked out in wonder and  delight. There lay the mere, known  as Ulla Water, and the grounds of the  estate sloped donwn to the very odge.  ft was a beautiful lake, on which In  *5un.,per the water-lilies slept, green  reeds and sedges grew on the banks  And in many places the boughs of the  trees dipped into the water. There  was almost every variety of tree in  ���������Jho grounds���������copper-beech and sllver-  ' i-teach. -stately oak and graceful lime,  trembling aspen and spreading walnut, the pride of the place being a  grand old cedar. In Its mantle of  white snow, with the sun shining full  uton It, the scene was most striking.  The robin* were flying about In search  of food, and the Inurustlnus was In  full flower. My h.eart and spirits rose.  It could not be nl misery In such a  world as this, such a b.cautiful world,  diflgured only by man and s(n !  I went down-stairs, thinking lhat, If  Christmas Kve were forgotten, surely,  r.dng Christmas, they would reniem-  Jier ChiistHias Day I But again there  ���������was no recognition of It���������no holly, no  rnj.stlcloo, no cheery voice, no laughter,  no Christmas greeting The house  wo-*. n������ jzflent In the morning sunshine  an It had been  on the previous night.  Jlrc-akfast was served In the dinlng-  recrn; but neither Rir Rudolph nor his  wife ami! down to It., The old butler  told me that Sir Rudolph's breakfast  was served Jo Mm In his study, anel  ���������<������-_-., .,������.���������������.  that her ladyship took hers in her own  room.  There was nothing to be done but  to make the best of It, to take my  breakfast in solitude and dream or  the thousand happy. homes where, on  Christmas morning, the long-parted  met again, ar/1. there was nothing but  glttelness and love; and while the sunshine does not deepen the shadow In  this gloomy dwelling, I.can tell tho  brief story of my lite���������how and why  I came to Ullamere.  My mother, Mabel Averll, came of a  Bcod old English family. When not  more than seventeen she ran away  with her drawing-master, Alec Forster,  a young artist, who had dreams of  making a "name and winning fame.  Her family never forgave her, - and  my father took her to Tarls.' There he  -"truggled Jong and arduously. The  best engagement he had was as  drawing-master to the pupils ot Mir.e.  Dudevant, who had a large and fash-  loi.able scS.iool In tho Champs Elysees.  He died suddenly of fever when I was  four years old; and Mmo. Dudevant,  who was a kind-hearted woman,  offered my mother a situation as English teacher In her school. My educa-  t'.or was to be her recompense���������and,  truly, I received a first-class education. Had I been the daughter of a  peeress Instead of a poor English  teacher, she could not have taken  greater pains with me. On my life at  the Parisian pension I need not dwell.  My mother died when I was nearly  eighteen; and after that I could"never  endure the place, It was so full of painful memories for me, Madame was  very good; when I told her how unhappy I felt, sho said the best thing  vc.uld be for me to take a situation  In England. She answered an advertisement for a young lady who spoke  French, German and Italian, and was  well aceiualnted with the literature of  lhe three countries. It was essential  that she should also be an excellent  musician 'and a good singer. Tho  salary proposed was most liberal, and  a comfortable though exceedingly quiet  heme  was  offered.  . "You will be very fortunate," said  Madame Dudevant to me, "If you  secure  this." ',._.  Very fortunate Indeed in a great  many respects ! The salary was ono  hundred per annum; the situation was  that of companion to Lady Culmore,  thn wife of Sir Rudolph Culmore of  I'rooke, residing now at Ullamere. in  Lancashire. Madame thought she had  some reason for congratulating me,  and I was only, too delighted to have  an opportunity of.secing England, tho  dund I loved.  It was on the twenty-third of De-  comber that I left Madame Dudevant,  tho school and the gay^ sunny" land  of France. I was eighteen the same  me,nth. My experience of life was  limited to that of a boarding school. I  hail a vague Idea that all married people- wore very happy, never having  lived with any. The only men I had  ~e"en were the masters who attended  the school and the fathers and brothers  of the boarders.  So, young and inexperienced, I was  plunged Into what I felt must be the  very heart of a tragedy.  Mrs. Harper came to cay that Lady  Culmore was not very well, and would  not bo Covvnstairs yet for some .time,  but that, if I liked, I could have the  carriage and drive to Ulladale Church.  '. ".Will'no one elae-g-o-to-church,-Mro.  Harper ?" I asked: ;  - "No one ever goes to church from  here," she said sadly. "You will find  lhis like very few other houses in the  world. Miss Forster;" and I felt that  her  words  were   true.  I told her how glad I should be lo  attend church. It was pleasant to  think of-going out into the sunshin***  amidst the holly and the snow.  Tears came to my eyes when I heard  the chime of Chiistmas bells at last.  There was no lack of evergreens in the  church; the whole place seemed to be  filled with them. Again I prayed heaven, for my Christmas gift���������some one  -to-love-mer5-^"-thought���������muehr���������as_I  ki eit there; ot the darkened household  whence no one went' to church, and  where they had forgotten Christmas  Eve.  I drove home again when service was  over, better and blighter for that my  first visit to an English church; but,  as I drew near Ullamere, the shadow  fell over me again.  When I re-enterd the house, I found  that Sir Rudolph was out, and tho  butler told mo that Lady Culmore  wished to see me In her boudoir. The  boudoir was a pretty littlo room leading from the drawing room and looking right over tho mere. I went To  her at once, feeling more curiosity  than I cared to express. I found her  very quiet, very sad, and pale.. Evidently the terrible emotion of the pre-  "VOU  HAVE  BEEN" TO CHURCH."  ceding evening had exhausted her. She  wore a dress of purple velvet that  sl"i wed her tall, graceful figure to the  greatest advantage. There was the  same deadly pallor on her face, the  same curious expression of restraint,  fear and longing in her eyes as there  had been on the previous night. She  hold out her hand to me, half clinging  to me. an I noticed afterwarel she  clung to any one who was kind to her.  "You have been to church," she said,  wilh a smile. "You found something  like Christmas there ?*'  "A ue>autiful Christmas," I replied,  "just ns I had dreamed of it���������all holly  and laurel and mistletoe. And I love  to hear the old Christmas carols."  "I have not been to .church for so  long, I almost forset what the services  are  like,"  she  said.  "Do ygu not think It rather a pity  nor to go to church '!" L ventured to  ask. "It does not matter whether our  trouble be of body or of mind, there  is  always  comfort  there."  "It would be useless for me," she-  said���������"quite useless."  "Rut why ?" I a=kcd.  And her face paled as she answered:  "If man can not forgive, how can  Heaven   forgive ?"  "It Is just tho reverse," I answered.  "It matters littlo about man forgiving.  If Heaven forgives. BuL you��������� Oh,  I.ady Culmore, what a strange thhig  for you to sny ! What can you hava  done for such pardon to be requited?"  They were imprudent words, and.  had I stopped to think, I should not  have uttered them; but she did not  take them amiss. I saw a faint motion of her hands, as tlioui.ii she  would fain wring them, nnd then she  turned away.  "Lady Culmore," I snld to her presently, "IC you have a few minutes to  spare, I should like to know what my  dultes are. Up to the present' t'rne I  have not done anything for you."  "Your duties*," sho repeated, vaguely���������"your duties ns a companion te*  me ? It was Sir Rudolph who Insisted  that I should have a companion. I do  not know. He thought I wanted some  one to be with mc."  "What shall T be able to do to help  you ?" I asked.  "I hardly know," slie replied. "Can  you comfort me when I am most miserable ?"  "I will do my best," I answered; and  she turned from me with a low moan."  "I want-comfort," she said���������"ciom-  fort always."  CHAPTER III.  I could not describe the misery of  Sir Rudolph's household. What the  shadow was that lay over it I was  unable to guess. Husband and wife  were both young and handsome; th?y  had almost every gift that Heaven  could bestow; nothing was wanting,  so far as I could see to complete their  happiness; yet they wero further  apart, it seemed to me, ..than If a  grave had lain between them���������a thousand  times further apart.  lhat first Christmas Day that I  sptnt in England will never die from  my memory. We did not see Sir Rudolph until dinner-time���������seven o'clock ;  and then-it appeared to me that my  remonstrance respecting Christmas  Day had reached the kitchen, for the  dinner comprised something In the  shape of Christmas fare���������a turkey and  a plum pudding. Some one, in a*moment of Ill-advised enthusiasm, had  placed a pretty little sprig of holly���������  a few glossy leaves, with a fair sprinkling of red berries���������on the top of the  Is-.ller. Sir Rudolph looked at it, and  thc-n turned to the butler."  "What is  this?"  he asked.  " Holly,- Sir  Rudolph,"   he  replied.  "And why has it been put there?"  he  continued.  "I thought ��������� perhaps ��������� Christmas  Day,"   he   said,   stammering.  " Take it away -" commanded Sir  Rudolph,   sternly.  And the butler, with great perturbation of manner and a crimson face,  removed the unfortunate, sprig of holly.  I read the expression of Sir Rudolph's  face, and it said, as plainly as words  cculdvspeak, " I will have no rejoicing,  no outward sign of rejoicing, in this  -house." -... -  And in such fashion Christmas was  celebrated at Ullamere. I watched  husband and wife, and I was never so  completely .puzzled. I could not make  out the cause of disagreement at all.  It was no petty feeling that actuated  him, that had caused those lines on  Sir Rudolph's face ; one could see that.  Some great, deep emotion was at work  within him, and at times it almost  overpowered him.  Lady Culmore was beautiful enough  to charm any man, yet she evidently  had no charm for him. Whatever the  mystery might be, I felt sure it was  not that he cared for anyoneelse.  There~wa"s���������s6methlng~sb truer~"~se_T  r.otle about him that, no one living  could suspect him of anything wrong.  He was polite to his wife, with a cold,  icy politeness that was enough to madden a woman who loved him.  He never said an unnecessary word  to her.' When he was dining with us,  he did the honors of the table. If, on  asking her to partake of any dish, she  declined, he did not press .her. He  never repeated the Invitation. When a  bow or gesture.of any kind could take  the place of words, it was made to do  se. Any little act of politeness, such  as placing a chair or a footstool for  her, was performed with a formality  and coldness that made matters far  worse than if he had omitted it. He  never went out with her. He went his  way. she went hers. He never interfered with her arrangements. If Lady  Culmore asked him a question, ho re-  piled to it as briefly as possible.. He  l'ever offered any comment, any suggestion; in fact, between them a gulf  lay wide and deep as the grave. But  Lady Culmore, I could see, had a wild,  passionate adoration for her husband.  She love_d him so well that she trembled at tlie sound of his footsteps, at  tlw sound of his voice. Her eyes were  always full of entreaty, full of pain  and passion. Sho suffered terribly  when he was present; she suffered even  mere when he was present. In one  case it was an agony of longing, In  tho other an agony of pain. It was  the strangest household, surely, into  which" any one ever - entered. Sir  Rudolph occupied the west wing. His  rooms were all there���������his study, dressing-room, bed room, gun-room���������and  overlooking the park. Lady. Culmore's  rooms were in the east wing. The  great drawing-room and the dining-  room, with one or two handsomely  fu'r.ished reception rooms,were in the  centre of the building.  There they met on neutral ground,  as it were, but nowhere else. No  messages ever passed between them.  They lived as perfect strangers, barely  interchanging the ordinary civilities of  life. Strange husband and wife, surely. And the gloom that surrounded  lhe*m seemed to spread ��������� to others.  Tlipy went ab'ut with a hushed, sub-  di ed air anel movement, as though  they .too felt the weight of the mystery.11  Only on Sunday morning did we all  t..kp brrakfast together: and a most  solemn and funereal affair it was.  During the week Sir Rudolph and  Lady Culrror./ r.c-ver met until night,  when we dined. We sper.t the day In  study and sport,    She���������well, It seem  ed to me that her hours were spent In  a fevered dream. I shudder now when  I think of them. She was never at  ease, at rest, for five minutes together.  Sin; would ask me to play and ting to  or with hcr.and then in a few minutes  woultl rise and cry out that It was  ei,i ugh, that she did not care for It.  Sht> would begin to translate some  fci*eign work, and, ebfore she had  written many lies, it would follow the  futei  of the music.  "Come out with mo, Miss Forster,"  she would say, "I cannot bear the  house; Il stifles me."  Wo would go out, and perhaps before  v.e had reached the park gates, sho  would say, with a dreary sigh���������  "Let us go back again. I cannot  bear the park."  On the beautiful restless face I never  saw for one moment an expression of  pi .'ice.  Tho evenings were perhaps the most  ciliary part of the life at Ullamere.  fir Rudolph never spent them with  us. When .dinner was ended, he went  to his room, and we saw no more of  him.  Rut one evening���������ah, me, what a  night that was I���������a most terrible storm  raged. The snow was nil washed away,  the rain fell in torrent.1--. It heat against  the windows as though It woulel shatter them. The wind was omethlng  F-Pl-alllng in its violence. We could  hardly hear each other speak; trees  we:r<? torn up'by the roots; the doors  and windows rattled. Once or twice  tho great bell in thestable rang without rhythm or measure. . The dogs  howled, the servants were pale with  fear.  At usual, Sir Rudolph rose to quit  the dining-room. To'my surprise, Lady  Culmore went up to him. This time  she did not touch him; she did not lay  her hand upon his arm, but sho looked up at him with the most despairing  eyer  I ever fteheld.  "Sir Rudolph," she said���������and her  voice trembled with the passion of her  earnestness���������"! pray you remain with  TO MY SURPRISE, XjAUY CUI.MOItl* WENT UP  TO HI.M.0  '  'us-; I am frightened. Heaven Ia angry  t'l-nlght, and I am sorely afraid. Stay  with us."  For a moment his eyes flashed fire.  Then, looking at the white face, with  its quiveing lips "and frightened eyes,  the fire died out and profoundest pity-  took  its place..  I thought my prayer, added to hers  might have elfect, and I said :  "The wind and the rain would make  any one  afraid."  He hesitated half a minute. He did  not look at his wife again, but glanced at me.  "Are you really alarmed, Miss  Forster ?"   he  asked.  "I should bt- glad If you would re-  main," 1 replied touched by,the wistful  entreaty   of her  eyes..  "Then I will," he replied; and the  relief on her face was beautiful to see.  I could not understand' why she cared so much for his presence. He never  speke to her nor looked at her, never  v,"_nt_ near her. If she made a. remark  "to trie, he was studiously silent; yet  I fancied that he listened with some  kind of curiosity  to all that she said.  During that evening a feeling of  friendship sprung up between ' Sir  Rudolph and myself. He was well-  brecl, graceful and accomplished. To  me there was something more than  courtesy, something of chivalry in It.  1 found that he was an 'excellent  French and German scholar. We talked of Goethe and of Heine, of that  most graceful and original writer,  Fouqu.p.of whom he was an enthusias-  tic'admirer. We had a most enjoyable  conversation. Several times I tried  my best to" draw Lady Culmore Into  It; but. when I spoke to her, ho"re-  maine-d silent. If she made any comment, he did not reply; so, from sheer  pity for her embarrassment, I rerraln-  edjrom appealing to her. Still, It  seemed strange. There was the husband. Intellectual, a deep thinker,  fluent speaker, delightful companion;  here was the wife, fair and beautiful  as the morning star; between them was  a gulf that no human power could  bridge.  I liked Sir Rudolph. I could see no  fault in him; but I noticed one thing.  No       matter       what we      said,  no matter how the subject en-  gre-ssed" him, "the shade of sorrow and sadness never left his face  ror died from his dark eyes. Something of pity for the estranged wife  filled my heart. Surely she must suffer terribly! He was so kind, so gentle  in his manner to me*���������to her so cold,  so silent. To me it became so painful  at last that I said to myself that anything would be better than for Sir  Rudolph' to spend his evening's with  ui.  What was the mystery ? Even as  he talked to me over and over again  I asked myself this question. I could  sop no fault In either, nor could I see  In either any cause, any reason for  the coldness  that existed.  It struck ten at last. The storm  had abated.   Sir Rudolph arose.  "You will not be afraid now," he  traid. regarding me with a kindly  smile. "The wind has fallen, and the  rain  has  ceased."  I looked Instinctively at Lady Culmore. His glance fo'lowed mine; but  the expression of his face changed  completely as his eyes rested on her.  Then, with a bow, he was gone: and  she turned away with an expression  of mortal anguish on her face.  dai.o him any wrong, why did he not  punish Iter '!

If she had  A simple process of dehorning is re  commended hy ti writer in Hoard's  Dairyman: This is the way to dehorn:  The first day after the calf h.-vs sucked  itself lull it will lie down and sleep  some, and then you can go to it, open  the hair where the little horn is to  come, and you will find a little naked  spot where tliere is not any hair. Just  put a little common potash on the  spot, and it won't wake it up and the  horn will never grow. By common  potash I mean common box lye that  they make soap out of. Take a soft  wooden stick to put it on  with; don't  Kut on too much; just wetting the little  utton, as we call it, is till that is needed. The next day go and feel of it,  and if the spot has a little dent there,  then it is dead, and in a short time a  scale will come olf, and then the hair  will grow and be as smooth as a tunl-  ley can be. -If there is no dent there  the next day, then you must, put on a  little moie, hut tbat is seldom needed;  and I think it is so much better to  have the horns off. Our dairy cattle  have no use for them now, and 1 think  it is merciful to kill the horn when it is  so little and it can he done without  even waking the calf up out of its  sleep.  . . <i,p  The O.

The Duchess  was one of the most popular of the  Royal family, and her death is felt to  be a national loss. Flags are half-  masted on all publicbuildings throughout Great Britain. The Queen, whose  cousin she was, was greatly alfectecl  on hearing the news'.  Winnipeg Tribune: Complaints tire  constantly reaching the city in regard  to the treatment of the men in the  Crow's Nest Pass construction work.  It is said that with the various charges  against them they scarcely get a cent  for the flfet two months' work, and  that owing to the fact of the pay  being so poor the Dominion immigration department arc no longer advising new arrivals to go out to the work.  As has been previously reported, all  the men who have been able to get  employment elsewhere have left, and  the majority would bo glatl to do so if  the opportunity presented itself.  At Springfield, Mo., the other day  Raymond Allan, twelve years old',  went to school curryim- a stick of  dynamite, which he found in a stone  quarry, in his pocket, Willi a knife,  top,marbles and a quantity of other  things, common to boys pockets.  Getting into a seat the boy banged  the dangerous collection against the  desk, causing an explosion which will  piohably cost his life. The child's  right hand was blown ofF, on his right  groin a wound was inflicted. The  teach~r, who was close by, hatl her  skirts torn into shreds, but she was  not hurt. The explosion caused a  panic among the other children. Several were hurt trying to get out of the  building.  One of the latest novels .that is  interesting the public is "Menotah." a  tale of the Riel rebellion, by E. G.  Kenham. Louis Riel, as one might  suppose, is not introduced as an active  character, so that the Dlot lends more  towards the study of passion and  dwells upon the unscrupulous treatment the Indian women received nt  the hands of the white traders anel  settlers of that time. The mighty  shadow whicli looms behind this tale  ofthercbellionisth.it of the loyalty  the late Aichbishop Tache showed,  who, almost unaided, crushed the  rising spirit of the halfbreeds nnd  Indians and brought the insurrection  to a close. Menotah's story is a sad  one, ar.d yet it might have been  painted with a darker color.
