BARNARD.  fcopi -S-rr  * INCORPORATION  Another Week Required to Think- the  Matter Over  There was a big crowel collected in  Peterson's hall last night to receive  the report of the coimnitl.ee on incorporation. Mr. T. Ij. Haig was voted  into the; chair and Mr. W. F. Cinge  appointed secretary eif the meeting.  Mr. Crage then read the following  REPORT OE THE  INCORPORATION  COMMITTEE.  Regarding the question of registration of the titles held by the people of  this place fur lands bought friun the  owners of the several tovvtisites eif  Kevelstoke, viz., the Dominion government, the Canadiiin Pacific ni'l-  vvay company, the Kootontiy, B. 0.,  Smelting to Trading Syndicate, Ltd..  Mr. J. A. Mara and Mr. A. S. Farwell,  your committee are pleased to be enabled tei report that all persons deriving their title's from the first four  mentioned tun obtain 'registration  thereof at any time, by applying, in  the usual manner prescribed by law.  ��������� Persons deriving their title from  Mr. A. S. Farwell must execute a conveyance of their land to the Dominion  government, who. upon receipt tlicre-  of, will in return convey back te) them  by crown grant, which can then bo  registereil.  * Regarding the qnebtion of the incorporation of'this plate, yemr committee  after careful consideration have no  hesitation in affirming that to do so  will be tei promote the best interests of  the town, anel advise that the necessary powers should be applied for with  as little del.iy as possible.   "-  Yeinr committee submit the following figures relative to the -I'stiuiiited  annual income und expenditure of the  future municipality:  Income niatle up as follows :  From real and personal property taxes..$15,000  From police court flues ."....   1,01)0  approximate e.stim.itu of the expenditure under iireseiit conditions, and  what it woultl be as a municipality.  Mr. 11. It. Atkins a.sked if the com-  iniltce had ceiine tu any conclusion us  to how far incorporation woulel place  the responsibility of protecting tho  river bank on the town.  Mr. C. Lineltnark asked tbein to give  some iiifiiriimlion as to the stage in  their ilevelopement at which other  towns in the province had incorpor-  tited.  Before, adjourning Mr. F. Fraser  appe'.'iled tt) those present to attend a  bee next day to make two shucks, in  whicli two poor Hungarian families  itre living in the upper entl "of the  town, habitable. Mr. Robinson'hatl  given lumber and'a dinner woultl bo  provieled at the mill. The Enterprise  brewery and Mr. O. II. Allen had each  given a barrel ofj beer. He appealed  to everyone to come along ��������� -'ind bring  their hammers and have an old-time  bee.  The meeting then tidjoiirned till  next Friday evening.  NO CASE AGAINST HASKINS  NOTE AND COMMENT  j  The Canadian Mute, published at the  Belleville Institution for  the dent iind  dumb.'eif which Mr. R.Mathison.fiither  of Dr. Mathiseui, D. D. S.. of this place,  is    superintendent,   makes   a   strong  appeal for the establishment of an   institution   for the  education   of  deaf  .chileU*_en._in____B.ritish__C<jluiiibia.______The_  article states that there must be at  least 25 or 30 deaf children in the province and that the provincial government is even now maintaining three  deaf pupils in the^VVinnipeg Jlnstitn-  The cost of buildings would not  ���������ge and tilt hough-the present  drain of the education department on  the revenue of the province under the  present system is very large, yot British Columbia ought not lo lag behind  her sister provinces of the Dominion  in caring for the children suffering  from the great afflictions of deafness  and dumbness. In many cases they are  mentally very bright and intelligent  anel they should not be denied the  privileges of an education towards  which their parents are c-eniipcllcel to  contribute for the benefit of those  children to whom nature has been  more b.-neficent. These* helpless little  ones must net be neglected in the race  for material wealth anei progress.  As was slated in the Herald some  time ago Senator Mclnnes hael an  option on the Lieut. Governorship of  this province. He has now taken it up  and in spite eif the almost unanimous  wish of the Grit* party in British  Columbia to see Mr. W. Templcnian,  of the Victoria Times, in the vice-regal  chair, that gentleman has tn be con-  tenteel with a seat in the Senate. One  object'tif the Liberal convention was  to make e-ve'rything smooth for this  arrangement. Mr. Temple-man lind  considerable claims for tho Lieut.  Governorship. In many respects it is  a great pity for lhis province that he  was not appointed to the office, but  former promises made by the heads of  the party to Mr. Mclnnes have been  strong enough to thrust the latter into (be appointment, all epiestions of  suitability for the pr si tion nnd the  openly expressed wishes of the British  Columbian Grits going for nothing.

Tho following description of, the  Finl.iy river is extracted from Mr. R.  G-. McDonnell's report of a trip made  iu 1S93. Tlie Finlay river is named  after John Finlay, who ascended it in  lS2t in the interests of the Northwest  Company. From' its junction with  thu Parsnip to its headwaters is a  "total length of 310 miles, of which 200  are easily navigable with the exception  of Deserter's Canon, ninety miles from  the mouth, which is half a mile. long,  but along the west bank of which a  good portage track has been cut out  by the Indians. . The current seldom  exceeds five'miles an hour. Inflows  through'a wide forested valley, the  drift wood from which lias formed  piles at the heads of all the bars and  islands." At Fort - Graham. 45 miles  above the mouth,a trail is stated lo run  eastward to the Liard. Sixteen miles  above Fort Graham the Ingeuica  enters the Finl.iy from the west. It is  a clear rapid river, navigable .for  "thirty miles. A trail to "Bear Lake  runs along'the bank. It is well worthy  of being prospected, as it must cut  through the same band of green and  dark schists from which the gold ou  the Onieniea, is ..derived. Fine gold  wiis found in the wash at the mouth of  the river. Fourteen miles above the  Ingenic.-i the Finlay" is narrowed by  Deserter's Canon. The channel is  crooked and'" is'interrupted by' bad  riffle*s. It can be run at certain stages  oE water but its navigation is dangerous. Above the canon the Akie  river flows in from the east;'it has not  been explored. The wash ;in the bed  at the mouth is principally limestone,  and eloes not contain golel. Good prospects-were oiitiiincd-from-a-conplei-of.  streams entering the Finlay between  the Akie and Paul's Branch, n small  stream running in on the west.  The Quail.icha eir Whitewater flows  into the. Finlay on- the east, eleven  above Paul's branch. Three miles  further the Tochieca enteis the Fin-,  lay. which soon after makes a big turn  to the west anel leaves the great Inter-  mnnlane valley of British Columbia.  Fine* gold occurs on the Finlay  throughout most of its course, but  with the* exception ������>f one bar, Peter  Teiy's, no paying placers have been  discovered. "Very little prospecting  has however been done on the river,  anil none of the tributaries have been  prospected, with the exception of the  Omenica anel Ospicn. Gold in a fine  condition was found at the mouths e'f  the Ingeuica, thn Quadacha and  Tochieca and senne of the smaller  western tributaries, but with the: exception eif the Qiitiilacha.no colors were  foil ml on ihe eastern streams above  Deserter's Canon.

The Blame Lay with ;the Foolishness  of the Shareholders���������The Company  Never Solvent from the Start���������All  Haskins did was to Get all he conld  out of the Company when all Hope of ��������� -  ..Operating the Mine was Gone.  (Special to the Herald.)  , Vancouver,   Nov.   13.���������The    case  against J. W. Haskins,  charged .with  conspiring to defraud the shareholders  of the Orphan Boy mine was continued all elay yesterday.   Before the final  argument was  to   be   heard,   Justice-  Drake stated that the prosecution hatl  made out "no case."    In  his remarks  he said, that if foolish  people would  buy. dollar stock at 50 cents, they  had  only themselves  to blame  if disaster "  followed.   According to law there was'  no evidence that Haskins conspired to*'  defraud the creditors..  His action   in  issuing the writ and selling the proper- -'  ty   was   legal.    The   other   directors  were  aware   that   the manager   and   *  secretary had voteel themselves, while  tlirectois, salaries  to the  amount   of  ,"2.">0 a month, when tliere was but SIT-  in the treasury and but $2,000 of .stock  was sold altogether, and still no action  was,   taken-   although     these   other  directors were notified.   The company,  was never solvent from the start,  anel  it   was   evidently   Haskins'   plan,   in  issuing the writ and forcing the-sale  tn try and get all  he could, when-nil  hope of carrying on the operations at,  the mine was gone.   The evidence did'  not show however that he had /unlaw--'  fully taken legal proceedings in getting   '_.  the judgment against the company.    _ ".',"  The Columbian Methodist' College."

Messrs. Skelton and  Demers were both members of the  Battleford Liberal Association, to  whom all Conservatives who held  oflice appeared in the light of  partisans of the most offensive  kind. An organized attack was  made 'by the association on the  Battleford postmaster, Mr. Mercer,  who- was not a Liberal aud  affidavits duly sworn were forwarded to the Postmaster General  charging "offensive partisanship"  on the part ot the official. These  affidavits contained statements  that were untrue, and Mi*. Mercer  laid an information against  Messrs. Skelton, Demers and  Daunais'ibr perjury. The trial is  over. Skelton and Demers have  been found guilty and in the case  of Daunais the jury failed toagree.  There are two lessous to be learned  from the result. In the first place,  many other officials who have  been dismissed on similar evidence  might well enquire into tuo truth  of the 'statements contained in  their own particular affidavits,  possible with profit to themselves  and discomfiture to their enemies.  The second moral to be deduced is  the final triumph of perseverance.  Skelton and Demers were looking  for a government job.

The Prospector editor declines to  answer the query, and no wonder.  The manner in which the exocarp  should be extracted from the drupe  is a question that should not be  decided hastily. The lady was  recently greatly shocked to see a  man grasp the olive with his  incisors, and while the drupe was  deftly landed back onto the  molars, tbe exocarp was fired un-  cermoniously back into the plate  in frontof the gentleman who was  endeavoring to masticate the  drupe and eject the exocarp,  which both science and experience  has shown to be difficult of  digestion. Tlie Prospector editor  hai displayed great wisdom in the  diffidence he has assntneel. J t is to  be hoped, however, that some  savant will give alucitl exegesis on  the proper disposition of the  exocarp aud drupe. It will not  onlv prove a great help in eating  olives, but it may como handy in  loading up on prune?.

Two Models Built by Colonel Barwis-  Patents Applied For  (From tlio Calf-sirs- Herald)  Colonel Barwis, of this city has  finished two models of boats for Clonelike travel, which contain some new  principles and appear-to be admirably  adapted to the purpose for which they  are intended.  One is a model eif a large boat suitable for the McKenzie liver, to be 25  feet long with a 0 loot beam, and  capable of carrying 4 tons of supplies  and 0 men.  Ihe smaller boat is calculated to  carry the maximum of freight to the  minimum weight of boat. Colonel  Barwis claims that a 20x0 ft boat built  on the principles of liis patent will  carry   3   tonscof supplies and -1 men.  The main idea of the boat is that  the siding is laid on diagonally, and is  only an eighth of an inch thick, and  is fo be covered with S ov.. duck. The*  Colonel claims tbat a boat of 1 he above  i-ize can be made to weigh only a hundred pounels: and that it will be ;vs  light anil imie-h stronger than a birch  bark canoe of the same sr/.e. Another  new idea of tlie Colonel's is a telescopic  keel, which can be letdown ov drawn  up instantly.  The models wore examined by Commissioner Cbipman the either day and  he was so pleased that he intimated  the: Hudson's Bay Co., would probably  reejuire a large number for their own  use.

He  was really the first young-, handsome  man I had known. That beautiful  June was tho happiest month oC my  life: not that I forgot tlio troubles and  sorrows of others, but that the glamour ot love's young elream was so  Ftrong: upon me that my heart was  lull.  Ulric Culmore had conic to Ullamere  to study and to rest, yet how oCten in  (lie early mornings, when the lake was  like a sheeL oi" molten gold aiiel the  rosy light lay en the distant hills, I  found liim in the grounds or down by  the water'side! And I had not the  faintest ielea the t he came because he*  "\ ishctl to talk to mo. Tho knowledge  that I loved him with a full and perfect loio that was to be my one secret  in life, gave me, strange to say, perfect ease in liis presence, perfect confidence while with him. So we talked  In tho early morning hours, under tlv'  stately trees, and down by the' river  side, tho birds singing to us, tho flowers sending us their sweet perlume,  tho sun shining down  upon us.  Mr. Culmore liked talking to me. He  always took breakfast with Lady Cul-  ' more and mo. He very often caine  during the morning to read to us as  wo sat in the sliaele of the great spead-  ing trees; ho followeel us always into  the drawing room after dinner; lie accompanied us in our walks and drives.  "How much pleasanter a house is  when there is a gentleman to take an  interest in matters!" -I saiel one day  thoughtlessly to Lady Culmore.    I re-  ^,  .l*>.=r     **W mSt, i'i  luumi  "E0  YOU  KNOW   WHAT TIII*j   MEAN'S ?"'  pen ted the words the moment I saw her  face  grow pale.  One morning UhiLc and I were together amongst the roses. He plucked  one and gave it to me; it was a lovely  moss rosebud just peeping coqueltishly  frem its green leaves.  "Do you know what this means?" he  asked.  I said "Xo." that I knew nothing of  the language of flowers.  You do not know what a moss rosebud symbolizes?" he eiuestioned. "Promise mo to [try  to  find out."  Was it the warm sunlight that dazzled my happy eyes? 1 could not look  at h.ni. 1 took the rosebud and ran  away shamefacedly.  "IHtes Forster," he said, "do" not  waste this beautiful evening Indoors.  Our host and hostess have both withdrawn. Let us enjoy the last rays or  the sun.    "Will you come ?"  Would I ? My heart went out to him  In answer. Whither evould he have led  that  I  would  not have  followed ?  "You will not need hat or cloak this  leiely evening," he continued.  A black shawl of Lady Culmore's  lay on the couch. He wrapped it in  Spanish fashion around my head and  fchoulders. ���������  "I -will sf.o-.v the flowers thoir queen,"  he said. "Let us leave the world, with  all Its cares and miseries behind us,  "llss Forster, and go for an hour Into  f-.\'ry-land."  "Where   is  fairy-land ?"   I  asked.  "Wherever we like to make It," he  replied. "We shall Und ours near the  hike."  Shall I over forget the scent of the  magnolia, which was In full bloom;  and filled the air with perfume ?  Shall I ever forget the cry of the  cus,hat dove, the song of the night-  n gale on the far side of the lake, the  golden light on tho water, the fair,  Line sky, tho scent of the blossoms  wo  crushed beneath our. feet "  Just where the magnolia-tree, with  its great, white, scented flowers, stood,  I It* lake formed a little bay. Lady  Culmore, who had pretty fancies when  sho was not too miserable to entertain them, called it "Magnolia Bay."  I told Mr. Culmore this, and ho smiled  at the pretty conceit.  "V,re will make it our fairy-land," he  saiel.  Such an hour comes only once in  life?; and it came, thank Heaven, then  for me ! The water of the lake softly  rippled and kissed tho green banks; the  v-lnd stirred the magnolia-blossoms.  Far away stretched the rugged brown  hills, golden now in the light of the  setting sun. My lover was silent for  seme minutes, then he took both my  hands, looking at them earnestly.  "You year no rings, Miss Forster,"  he  said.  "J haven't any," I replied cpiickly.  "Madame gave me my mother's wed-  dir.g  ring;  but it broke."  "I wonder it you will think me very  rude if I make one comment ?" he  continued. .'  "I should never think you rude," I  answered, "make what comment you  might,"  "As you wear no engagement' ring,  I venture to conclude you are not engaged ?"    - . .  "To be married, do you mean ?" I  asked,   in .supreme  wonder.  "Yes,   to   be   married,"   he   said.  "Oh, no! How could that, be ? I  have been at school all my life."  "You have" never had a lover ?" he  pursued.  "No,   never,"-1   answered.  "I knew it," he said.    "Ah, Kate," no  CHAPTER  IX.__ ' "   '  As I hurried from Mr. Culmore, I almost ran against Lady Culmore. I  stopped  to apolosize.  "Where   are   you   going   in   such   a  hurry?"  shi asked.  "I do not know," 1 replied.  ,"Xot   know   whore   you   are   going,  Kate?    How strange!"  It was perfectly true. I only knew  that I was running away from happiness so great .that it dazed me as do  the r.iys of a burning sun. Lady Cul-  pit-re looked at-me earnestly���������I would  have given the world it I could have  hidden my face from her gaze.  "Oh, child," she said.."what is this I  read in your eyes!   What is it, Kate?"  "Nothing,"  I   replied,   trying guiltily  _ to hide the, rosebud.        __ _         ___  "Nothing?" she repeated. "Lift up  your head, Kate, and look at me."  There was no help for it. I raised  my hea<J, and looked at her. She  gazed  Into  piy  eyes,   and  said :  "My  dear,  the light that is in your  eyes is the light that never yet shone  on .land  or sea.    Do you know  what  that is ?"  ,   "No," I answered.  "The light of love," she said. "Oh,  Kate, what���������who has brought it  there?"  'The sunlight," .1 answered, as I ran  away a second time.  It was only natural that'I should go  to the library in search of a "Language of Flowers," and I read, "tosa-  roeebud���������confession of love." Ah, me,  I smile now I But tlien, when I read  it, a great, an almost solemn awe  came over me. I felt as a pilgrim feels  .when he first enters a shrine. - Of  course' it was all nonsense, merely a  jc=t. It was not likely that he loved  line, gtlll I would far rather that he  had not jested with me on such a  subject. And then the delicious memory of his words came to me. He  had said that I was one pf the loveliest  elrls he liad ever seen.    ,  How my heart beat I How my whole  ,<=cul seemed filled with .sunshine and  Jiufpiness ! Could any one be wretched in thic beautiful world ? And then,  jike an icy fi*ind, came the memory  pt Lady Culmore. .She had loved her  JipsbaivJ, -ind what w~~ her reward ?  I remembered what she said when I  told her of my prayer on Christmas  Eve. Yet, not heeding the warning, ~  jviapped up my precious" rosebud. I  .we-jiicjer if,,ever one small flower made  pny gi*" sp perfectly happy before ?  When f saw Lady Culmore the next  time, iier face -was pale from excessive  weeping, and I coufd n,~t help wondering if what hael passed between us  1'ad not roused bitter-sweet memories  in her heart. .    .  .  * * ��������� * * ������  -Dinner was over; it hatl been the?  -ordinary curious, constrained meal,  with the usual pnmpleto estrangement ot husband anil wife, the usual  rfforts at cheerfulness on the part Qf  Jllr, Culmore. How I longed to get  M-Wiiy, longed for tlio brightness of  sunlight ������������i<l flowers, for the fresh  air and outdewr  rre*e*elom.  "low It happened I can not toll.

May I have the first kiss,  Kate ~"  And there, in the glory of the evening sunset, my lover kissed mc for the  first time; and that kiss bound my  heart to him forever.  Tlie sun had set, leaving the water  cold and gray, before we remembered  how time was flying. The Lb-els had  alb gone to rest, al lnature seemed io  repose when we rose to return to the  house.  "Mr.  Culmore,"  I   began.  "Never, "Mr. Culmoie' again, Kate,"  he said. "Mine is not a very melodious  name, but you must try to use it. Say  'Ulric' always when you speak to me."  "Ulric," I said, shyly, "do not tell  anyone just yet. Let me grow accustomed  to  it  first."  "I will do as you wish, my darling."  ho said  ."but  for a  short time  only."  And then, although we wero so near  the house that any one could see us  from the windows, he kissed me again.  ���������'you weak no kings, .miss i'orster?"  woman's eyes are ever the same after  a'lover has looked into their depths!

"Did you find out what the moss-  rceebud symbolized ? You must tell  mc.    Did you find It out, Kate ?"  ."Yes," I whispered, almost inaudi-  bly." _  "I loved you "fit first sight, Kate,"  he said. "You were 3lttlng hero by the  lake whe I saw you.

I wanted to tell you this days  age, but I have hesitated; you seemed so unconscious of it all. To trouble  you with the cares of love seemed  like breaking into some beautiful sanctuary; yet I do not see why I should  not be happy, if I can. Kate, I love  you, and I want you to be my wife."  That was the answer to my prayer.  "I love you so dearly, so weS, Kate,  that I will tlevote my lire to *������e_ni. Will  you love me In return 1"  I did���������Heaven only knew how well.  But it occurred to me that it would  be madness for him. to marry me, I  had nothing but what he was pleased  to call my beauty anel my loving  heart. . I had neither fortune, position  nor connections, and I felt sure that  all these were needful to him. I told  him that fie could not do a worse  thing for himself.

I retorted. "You, Ulric, are the most Impatient  of  men."  The  dark  handsome face smiled.,  "You do not mean it, Kate. ��������� If 1  thought' you   did���������"  "You shall not' kiss me again,' Ulric;  I have made up my mind. Yesterday,  I am sure,  the gardener saw you."  "He may see me again to-day, if  he likes!" laughed Ulric. "If a man  may not kiss the girl whom he is going to marry, pray tell me whom he  is to kits ?"  That was a problem I was unable  at the moment to solve.  "Strange that we should ' both be  thinking of the same thing ! I was  just about to tell you that human endurance has its limits, and that I shall  not bear this kind, of thing much  longer." -   ���������  1 knew very well that "this kind of  thing" meant silence as.to our engagement, but I'was so unwilling to  speak of it.-    .  ' It was a glorious morning at the end  of June. My lover���������heaven bless hi-s  handsome head and dark beautiful face  ���������had come out to smoke a cigar under  the chestnut trees. As a mo.tter of  curse, I must go'with him. Sir Rudolph had ritld:n over to Ulladale;  U,'iic  hatl   eclined   tu   accompany  him.  "We will have a little plclu'.c ot*our  c-wn Kale,", he said; "I will 'have a  cigar or lwo, you s-hall have sornt  fruit, ar.d we .will improve the shining hours."  , It was absind lo resist, to make excuses���������which I did hypocritically  t-jiougl*.���������for nothing on earth was so  delightful.lo me as to  be  with  him.  "You forg't.." I said, "that I am  Lcdy  Culmore's  companion."  "I know tlia.t you are my com-  P'lrion,". he said: "and I shall not givo  you up cither to Lady Culmore or to  ar.y  one  else.".;  Ho arranged", a most comfortable  seat for me. and placed, some fruit  where I could easily reach it���������rich ripp  sti-E-wbon-ics .and  purple grapes. .

I  sighed.  "I will not haye you sigh, dearest,"  said my lover. "Sighs must not pass  such lips as yours���������lips made for  smiles and kisses."  "Ah. sweet .sunny houre, sweeter  th'-ih words oin tell, how quickly they  pasred, and how blissful "they were !  "I am saying. Kate," continued Ulric, " that I have, come to the; end of  my endurance. To love you as I do,  yet not to be at liberty to give full  expression to that love. Is torture, Last  night, when you were singing, you  looked   so   c-'-ptlvatlng    that   I    could  -���������'V^V^v*^  "i WAS SAYING, KATE,'' CONTINUED ULRIC,  "tHjVT I  IIAVK COME TO THE END  OF MY ENDURANCE."  hardly refrain from taking yqu In my  arms and kissing you."  "It was well you did not," Israld,wondering what Lady Culmore would have  thought.  "You said, dearest, you wished me  to keep silence about our engagement  for a short time*, because you wanted  to grow accustomed to it. Aro you accustomed  to It yet?"  I raised my happy eyes to his fac3,  and told him that the wonder of it was  so great that, if I lived for a century,  it would still be a source of supreme  astonishment to me.  "Evidently, then, it is quite useless  ���������vvaiting any longer. Lot me tell my  brother his evening. My darling, I  want to marry you in the autumn.  Are those tears i= your eyes, Kate?"  'Yes, tears of joy," I replied. "I am  so happy, Ulric���������no girl in the wiide  world was ever happier; but I can not  foi get the misery that surrounds us,  If I could see Lady Culmore less miserable. Sir Rudolph, more like you, I  should not care. I know how It will  be when we tell her; she will cry, or  say some of those terrible things that  one can not bear to hear, and Sir Rudolph will be colder than ever. Out  litre in the sunlight, where the waters  shine, the roses bloom, and the iv-hole  world Is lovely, it Is easy to be happy  and to talk of love; but in that  sltdowed house, by that shadowed  hearth, where husband and wife speak  of our love there, a shadow will fall  over it."  Ills face grew grave, the laughter  died from  his  eyes.  "I understand," he said, in a low  voice, "and I sympathize sincerely.  Kate," he continued after a time, "I  have never liked to speak to you about  the matter, but what ccan possibly  hjve parted those two ? Do you know  anything about It '!"  "Nothing in the world,"I replied.  "No one  could know less."  "Has ths coldness existed ever since  you have been here ?"  "Yes; and It is that which makes  me dislike to speak of my own happy  love."  "I have said nothing about it," continued Ulric; "but I was never" so  shocked, so startled, so distressed in  my life. Tho first night I spent here  I thought the" coldness was only a  passing one���������and even that horrified.  me; but, when I saw that it was al-  v. ays the same, that nothing changed or softened It, I was bewildered.  Do you know, Kate, that they were  or.ce the most devoted of lovers, thai  Rudolph was mad about her. and thai  she, so beautiful and graceful, was  sought after everywhere ? She rejected some eft'the best offers in England  to  marry  Rudolph."  "And now he is tired of her ?" 1  asked.  "No, that Is not it. I have watched  them closely���������for I. would do anything  to .bring about a different state of  things���������and have come to the conclusion that there is a secret between  them", and that it  concerns Nest."  "Of what nature is the 'secret, do  you think, Ulric ?" I asked.  ��������� "I read fear and shrinking in her  face," replied my lover. "Evidently  she has done something which has  made her afraid of him. What it can  be is a mystery to me. She is so  gentle, so loving, I can not imagine  that she would do" anything wrong. I  am_sure.it is .a strong reason, on his  .yart that causes him to treat her in  this" fashion."  . "I pity her the most," I said. "She  loves .him so dearly; her whole life  seems to be a passion of love and pain."  "And I," said Ulric, slowly, "pity  him the most; I see In his face such'an  expression of torture. I know that  he loved her so entirely that his heart  must have been broken before matters  cune to this pass."  I told him how I had found lier by  the lakeside; her face buried in the  grass, crying to Heaven for pardon  ���������lhat it had been, all for,.love of him.  My lover was silent for some time  after "that.     "��������� "    -.,-"  "I seems a dishonorable thing," I  said, "to try to discover a secret that  is evidently kept from one; but, if anything could be done to bring them  together, or even to, re-establish ordinary kindness and civility between  them, it would be a good deed."  Still, my lover, always so quick of  speech was  silent.  "Kate," he said, after a time, "are  you sure that Lady Culmore used  those. words���������'all   for   him'?"  "Not once, but a hundred times," I  replied. And then I saw that his face  had grown pale.  " 'All for him,' " he repeated. "That  would imply that she admitted having  done , something. wrong. - but - that it  was for his sake."  I'That is what I have always  thought, Ulric���������that she did some  wrong  to  him."  "What could she have dine ?" he  continued, "She loves .him to.> citirely  to have given a thought to any one  else."  "No, she has never betrayed him  t-ven by a thought," I said. And,.I saw  .the dark face grow paler.  "Kate," asked my lover, solemnly,  "havo you ever tried to imagine what  Lady Culmore couid possibly have  done ?"  "Never. She is truthful, or I might  think that she had lied tn some shameful way."  "But what could she have lied  about ?" asked Ulric. "There was no  mystery about their love or marriage;  and the lie must havo been a shameful one which could part them."  "Candidly, Ulric, I have seen no  fault in Lady Culmore except a too  great love for her husband. To mo  hc-r character seems perfect in every  other respect. I believe she loves him  mc-st. devotedly. I thing she would  do anything "in the wide world for  him. I can imagine that she might  even mistake wrong for right for his  sake. Nay, Ulric, I can go further; I  believe that she loves him so entirely  that she would do wrong for his sake  anel think it right. Love for him Is  the master-passion" of her nature."  Ulric looked terribly distressed.  "Why," I cried, "the shadow is  spreading to you. You look miserable.  What   is   it 7"  "A   horrible     idea,"     he   replied���������"a  false  one,  I could  swear,   but so  unutterably   horrible   that   It   has   made  "me  III." ���������   '  He looked ill.  .'Teh  me what  ll is ?" .1  requesteti.  ''I curi  not.  Kate,  To  Have' my* life  I wemld  not put  Into words  the  Idea  that has crossed my mind."  Not only hael his face grown white,  but his hands trembled. I did not  ]lke tn 3"k him any further questions.  He stamped  (ds foot Impatiently.  "How foolish I am, Kate," he cried,  "frightening myself with a scare-crow!  I must have a terribly depraved mind  for such an idea to cross It. That Is  tlie worst of my profession; we are  always diving Into motives. Kate, this  has spoiled our picnic. Let us forget  it."  He spoke lightly; but it was in vain;  he could not forget. I saw him shudder  again and again. He rose from his  seat, and paced up and down by the  lakeside, his arms folded, his head  bent, intense misery on his face. Truly cur picnic was spoiled. I went to  him at last, and laid my head upon  his arm.  "Forigve me, my darling," ho said.  "I have a fit ot the horrors. I am  ashamed ot myself. Toll me ono thing  ir.<,re. Justice Is justice. Tell me. In  all her raving and, lier prayers, has  Lady Culmore ever said anything  about  a   little  child ?"  "Why," I cried in wonder, "that ia  the very thing she is afraid of !"  I told him of the scenes which had  occurred. He stood like one transited.  "Great Heaven," he said at last. "1  believe X am right 1 I believe with my  whole heart apd soul that I ������.m right.  Kate, It is all over with our picnic.  Come  back  to  the  house."  IMPERIL BAHI(  It is now expected that the Dominion Parliament will meet about the  middle of January.  Still another town has arisen in the  Kootenay. The last issue of the 13. O.  Gazette announces the incorporation  of Cumbet land, in tbe Nelson district.  Judgment was given on Saturday in  the case of ding vs.the city of Victoria  arising out of the Point lOUice bridge  disaster. The jury found for the plaintiff $20,000 damages and costs.  The agricultural department, Ottawa, has issued a bulletin i'or distribution to farmers-, on tuberculosis in  cattle. Interested parties should \no-  cure a copy of this bulletin by addressing tlio dfparlment.  O. E. Tripp, representing the London  Graphic, lias journeyed through the  Crows Nest, pass for the purpose of  securing data on the work ot construction and of getting some views for an  illustrated article in the Graphic.  An application will be made to parliament at its next session to incorporate a company to construct a railway from a point near Cranbrook in  East Kootenay via Fraser river, Parsnip river ana Finlay river to the  Yukon.  Tho Toronto Globe has a well written editorial advocating the all Canadian route to tho Yukon,and pointing  out that only by tbe establishment of  such a route can Canadian merchants  receive a fair share of" the trade of  that countiy.  The latest "nickel-in-the-slot" device  is a bicycle which you can ride live  miles for five cents. . You can't cheat  the machine, for when the five miles  are covered you must drop another  nickel in the slot. It* you don't the  bike bucks like a broncho, anl throws  you over a, fence.  The C.

Gordon of Gordon to' Ircnsiele,  said to. a Free Press representative  that last week his firm did the largest  cattle shippincr business in the history  of the North West trade, for any one  week. Sixteen hundred head were  sent to Chicago, 2,000 to the east and  oOOstockeis were brought up fiom  Ontario for westernranchers.  M. J. Haney, superintendent of construction of the Crows Nest railway,  has been interviewed at Nelson relative to the alleged unfair treatment of  the men employed on, the road. He  stated that same of the men  endeavored to evade payment of  the fares advanced for them by the  Company, and also tried to make  trouble. The men were supplied with  tho best of boarel and w'ere paiel 100  cents on the dollar. The sum of 50c  charged for medical fees was the least  amount-he everliearilof-any company  charging.

Mining Record.  ABBOTT AND WAGNER GROUPS  Strong   High   Grade   Leads   Traceable  Through Both Groups.  The Ablu,it mine has a very fine  showing ou the Abbott group. At an  elevation of 0.500 feet a tunnel has  been driven &1S feet, to intersect at tv  depth of ICO feel, the main lode, which  is being exposed higher up'mill in  width Troni 12 to 15 feet'trending N.  XV. and S.���������IS., with four feet, of clean  galena carrying'���������carbonates and giey  copper, the ''remainder of the lode  being ciuieenl rating. Results give over  $100 in silver and up lo 75 per cent, in  lead. This ledge .is traceable fhiiiugli  the Mucin, Abbull, King William and  Union. The vein occurs in a "contact  of lime and slate. The general formation of the country is a fine, soft,  brown slate. A belt 'of limestone a  mile in width intrudes through the  slate anil is continuous right along the  country for miles. . This intrusion i.s  the foundation eif the country. On  tbo King William,em a direct lino with  the Abbott, the lode which outcrops  thirty feet high and 2'J feet wide is  qnnrlz. carrying grey copper and galena. The country being bare, ol undergrowth" and timber, the outcrop is  sn distinct that it can be seen for miles  wilh the naked eye, running as true  and as straight as a die. Four, hundred feet lower down on I lie King William an outcrop of quartz, three feet  wide, is exposed and cut by a creek.  About, one foot of this is solid 'galena  carrying high vnliics. A tunnel has  been driven cutting this vein at 30 ft.'  This is a true fissure vein cutting the  slate, .at right, angles N. E. and S. W.  When this junctions wilh the main  lode lhe possibilities tire great. On  the Abbott claim, -100 feet higher up,  another parallel vein is exposed in the  lime belt *nhicli is regular and well defined right through the country ten  feet wide, half of which isjsoiid ga'lena.  Another 100 feet higher an other vein  is exposed from six inches to a foot in  width of galena, impregnated with  grey ore. Tlii'se lodes are all sliong,  passing through the four claims of the  Abbott group inlo the Wagner group,  viz., Luetic, Francis Jewel, ISiiima  Fraction, Queen Mary. Princess Mavie,  Lardeau Fraction, Lai'deau-McCartncy  Fraction, Duncan to Ella. All these  claims are on the same line. A tunnel  has been driven on the Francis Jewel,  cutting .the lode at"'40 feel. 0:i the  Queen Mary .and Princess Mario open  cuts expose the continuation of llie  lodge carrying identical values. Ou  tlu* Ltu-duaii the solid galena is exposed  on the surface, and traceable right,  thiough from the Heel a into the Dim-  can, in all fourteen claims on the main  line. The outcrop on the Duncan is  composed of iron rose quartz anel  seams of solid galena standing nut of  the. ground 50 feet and being 50 feet  wiile*. A tunnel has been driven 100  feet, and a cross-cut towards the dip  has been HuUhed. Forty-five feet  deep cutting the same continuous  body nf ore sixty feet from the mouth  of the tunnel, ii good working winze  bas been sunk, following down the  vein at an angle of ."."> cb-gtee-s. At this  depth a cross-cut has liei-ti driven ten  feet towards the hanging wall.
