BAKNAIID.  ifept -JC-fi  A LIBERAL BLUFF  The revised, amemleil and olTicinl  copy of the platform atloptcil by the  Britihli Coliiinbia Lilici-nl Associ.-ilion  held at New Westminister last, Oclober has been forwarded to this oliice.  Like a Biblical prophesy, it is divided  into two parts���������denunciation and promise, denunciations of the Turner  government anil promises of the lint:  things to be hoped for in (.he,'coming  millenimn, when the province is under  a gooel Grit regime. There wns a time  in the history of Canadian aif.iirs  when Grit denunciations and Grit pro-  promises went ti long way, and. vvhuii  eveu some, of their opponents * I bought  that men, so full of fierce indignation  al political profligacy and corruption,  anil so confident that (hoy were the  people to make these crooked-things  straight, must have some kind of  meaning and reality behind Ih'jr professions. But. times are altered'hi this-  particular. There is . sue-h a vast  amount of Grit, pivmissory paper now  from twelve to eighteen mouths- overdue, that fresh drafts 611 the confidence of the people .-ire scarcely  negotiable at all without such an  enormous discount as to render them  practically- unavailable for business  purposes. The fact of the mat lei* is  that the approaching provincial elections will come to late for the Grits to  sit into lhe game and hope to. win on  the old time bluff. Their hand litis already been exposed andlliere is nothing like what peoplo thought' there  wtis in it. -      - ���������  The Uera ld has gradually xmd reluctantly been forced to the conclusion that these elections will be  fought out to all intents and purposes  on thelinesof Dominion parly politics.  The ljilx*r;tls of the province have determined that it slmll bo so. Our Liberal friends tire nothing, if not practical, and practical men do not go to the  trouble tinel expense of assembling in  convent ion and publishing a platform  for their health. If anything was required to bring the full significance eif  the"convention libiiie.to-lhcnjLHds of  those, who still entertain ��������� any doubts  on lhe subject, the fact should do-so.  that already those Libeial organs .and  politicians, no mullet- wlmt their former services aud hopes, nay promises  of reward, that refused to accede to  the mind of the convention and its  platform 01: provincial allnirs, are dis-  creditetl aud turned down. They are  no longer in geiod standing with their  ptuly. Its favors and approbation  are no longer theiis.  As for the constitutional opposition  in the provincial legislature, who last  July published it timid nnd tentative  document, which they called their  .pl.itfoi:iii,i.the_ir_peisili>on_-in___tlK������_haiids_  of the convention wtis not one to inspire much confidence in lhe minds of  (heir Conservative supporters. One  of the speakers called Mr. Scnilin' "a  man of sterling worth," but the convention did not think enough of even  liis Liberal adhcrehts ih the house to  make one* single one of them so much  as a vice-president. The amount of  consideration, which Conservatives  opposeel to the Turner'government  will receive at the hands of the Liberal organizers, if ever they get to  power in this province by Iheir aid,  may be pretty accurately gtiaged by  even that trifling detail. A straw is  good enough to shew which way the  wind is blowing.  In (he* opinion of the IIkk.u d il is  useless for the Conservatives of British  Columbia to at tempi, to entertain any  lingeriug hopes that Dominion politics  can be kept out of provincial affairs  any longer. A bold and insidious attempt is even novv being made to capture the government machinery of tho  province in the interests of the .Liberal governniontjind to reduce' the administration of British Columbian  affairs to the condition of tho provincial governments of Ontario and Manitoba, 'which aie mere side shows of  the great Grit .amalgamation at Ottawa. Our first duty must ho to save  this province from such a future and  to prevent this little Grit programme  from making the necessary connections. "We are not responsible* for the  situation, bub it, is becoming practically necessary for us to accept it.  The Grit platform and the chances  of this province getting the reforms  enumerated in it, if the Grits get the  reins of power in this pr-ivince, must  be dealt with in another issue.  CORRESPONDENCE  Roman Catholic Education and Ireland.  To the Editor of the lli:n,u.ii :  Sir : Vour last issue treated its readers to an account of the: reception  tendered to the Hon. Clarke "Wallace  by Iho Orangemen of this place, anel it  gives at some length a report of Ihe  speech delivered by the gtiesl of the  evening.  I lake no exception (o any statements or mis-statements which tho  Hon. Grand Master finds il convenient  or politic to utter before his chosen  I'ollovvc'is. nor have I any eju'ir'-el with  men who applaud such time worn  harangues, but. I consider a newspaper  account to be public properly and as  such 1 claim a few words in reply. Yon  say the Hon. Grand Master "slated  'that the "interference of the Church  of Komi- always had the same efl'ecl  on the education of thei people. In  Spain only 4 per cent, iind in Italy 5  per cent..of Ihe population could read  or write." Now I am not going to tell  your renders just what proportion of  the. people of those Catholic countries  are innocent of llie use of the "Ii r's,"  but I must i-iiy I am surpiiscd nl l.lu-  ispealcer striking such ti low rate out  here in B. C. when his competitors  down east rattle oil'as high as 40 and  50 per cent, to answer lhe same purpose. But Italy and .Spain .are a bit  foreign to us, let us just mention what  occurred the oilier day in old Ireland.  They have yearly governmental examinations over I here, open to all Iiish  boys and girls under IS years of H|~e  and'money prizes are awarded. This  year Ihe sum of ,������9,S22 vvas given in  prizes to boys, and of this ������7,(5.'J.~ w.-is  won by Catholics who carried off also  the highest honors and most coveted  medals anel this is a sample of what  has been oc'ctirrtng for yeat-Sj. The  endowments belonging to the Protestant schools-ill Ireland are very generous indeed whilst the Catholics schools  have to depend mainly on tin* "interference "f the church of Home."  Yours truly,  Romanist.  [Our correspondent could scarcely  have selected a more unsuitable instance of the benefits of education  under the Roman Catholic church than  Ireland. As a matter of fact the Vast  majority of ordinary Irish men,whether  Protestant or Roman Catholic, tiro  educated in the slate aided .and state  regulated ' primary and secondary  schools, of which Ireland probably  possesses the best "system in the. world.  ThVRo.nnn Calltoliu'.church has nothing to do with them, iis a' church,  whatsoever except that she furnishes  about 78 per cent, of the children educated in them. Considering which  percentage- it is not very remarkable-!  thiil they manage to get away with almost exactly that peicentage of (he  prizes. Owing to the excellent system  of state education and the hearty concurrence ot the Roman Qatholicclergy  and people therein in Ireland there: is  no difference whatever discernible as  far as education goes httween a Protestant Irish child iind a Roman  Catholic Irish child. Our correspon-  dent's touching picture, of the  iir.for-  Tbe work of surveying the river for  Mr. Gamble's report- on the protection  of the bank for the provincial government is almost completed. Mi'. Cummings has been taking soundings in  the river .and will soon be through  with the work.  lunate Roman Catholic, children de  prived of the generous endowments  granted by some person or corporation  iiiimenticined to their Protestant  compeers, and nurtured under the  fostering care of the Roman Catholic  church still managing to carry off  their full share of the prize money, is  as unlike the real condition of affairs  as anything could be. If there is one  country in the world where the state  litis taken the education of the e-hilel-  i-i*ii ont of the hands of (he Roman  Catholic church, il is Ireland.���������I5d.

Nor is there much  fear that the rush will cease with the  spring. No adequate estimate can yet  be made of the gold deposits that lie  scattered over that marvellous region  whose wealth has so long been shrouded from man in the fastnesses of the  mysterious north. Yet the success  that has met the prospector in every  direction indicates that it will be many  a long day before its wealth is exhausted. This means that not only  must we transport' an army to that  region in the near future,,but that we  must feed and clothe them, too, for an  unlimited period after their arrival  there.  The question who shall prolitby this  trade and tiaftic, is one of the first importance to Canadians. The goldfields  lie in Canadian Territory, and it would  naturally be expected that''the trade  should be ours. But if the water route  up the Pacific Ocean is to be the only  route into the Klondike, it is regarded  as certain that a large share both of  the transport of miners and the  freighting in of "their supplies will be  done-by'-Americansrwho^already-have  TELEGRAPHIC  THE WORLD'S DOINGS. IN  PARAGRAPHS  BRIEF  MOWAT AND MILLS  SWORN  LAURIER   AND     DAVIES   BACK  FROM  WASHINGTON  done and are doiog a good percentage  of it.   But if a route can be opened up  through Canadian territory   via   Calgary and Edmonton, we ought to be I  able to control it  pretty  thoroughly.  It would, to begin with, create an immediate   market  for    the   cattle    of  Alberta, which could be driven in to  tbe   headwaters of the    Yukon   and  thence distributed to the camps   scattered all along its course.    In the winter nothing would   be   easier,   than to  build up a   dead   meat  trade  in this  way, for the meat woultl always be in  cold storage when left  out   of  doors.  Then the feeding of these camps would |  create a similar demand for the wheat  of the:west and other farm  produce as  well.    'Prosperity   for   the    Alberta  district    and      the      whole     prairie  country would mean increased patronage for the east and its manufactured  ���������waies. -The east, indeed, would profit  more directly.    Miners must purchase  all sorts of supplies, nnd if they were  going up to the Klondike by means of  the C.P.R. to Calgary, hy the C. to E.  to Edmonton,  "Dd  then   overland   to  tbe Yukon, they would he very apt to  fit themselves out in Canada with Canadian made goods.  As to the practicability of the route,  the Edmonton people have no doubt.  They have published circulars pointing  out the safety of seyeral routes beginning at Edmonton and terminating at  the enticing country of the Klondike.  'There are water routes via the great  northern lakes and a pack trail route  by way of.Pelly Banks. It would he  bard to sit in an eastern office and  pass final judgment upon a question  of this kind, but the advantages of  such routes are so plain that the Government should certainly venture at  least the cost of a thorough survey  upon one of them. Let us' know  ���������whether we can get through that way  or not, for the pack trail route if open,  rou--t become the poor man's route,  ���������while the perfect way in which it is  cutoff fron the competition of the  Pacific states would ������cem to make it  the ideal route for Montreal merchants and manufacturers.

Sir Richard and Lady Culmore had  been married a little over a year when  a terrible tragedy happened. Sir Richard was killed by the bursting of a  gun. The bullet lodged in his heart,  and he foil dead instantaneously.  There was terrible consternation and  distress. .Massages and telegrams  .were dispatched in haste, and before  the end of the day both brothers were  at the Hall. No words could tell-their  grief at   the  news.  Sir Richard had left no vvill; but after  a. long conference with the lawyers and  a.}-, interview with Lady Culmore herself, it was arranged that everything  should for a time remain as it was.  Lady Culmore, desolate, for a few  months she would be the mother or a  little child. If this-child were a boy,  Sie would, of course, succeed both to  title and estate���������if a daughter. Captain Culmore would be the heir. ITc  liimself behaved most nobly. Nothing  could exceed his kindness to the young  widow. He insisted that she should remain at Biooke Hail, that every care  and attention should be lavished on  lier.; He'went .continually to! visit,heir.  He was as kind and devoted as the  mon loving brother could possibly  have been. Nest Hazlewood remained during this "anxious period with her  cousin at ISrooke. and she, too, as  nuiF", was most devoted. There were  times when Nest rebelled against the  .fate of her lovei-; and herself.  "It does seem hard," she would say  to him, ���������'that a: little child should stand  between- you and this grand inheritance."  But the captain vvouid. laugh at her,  and? never: made the slightest comment  on the state of afft.irs. His brevilier's  M ife and child were sacred to him.

Captain Culmore had been sent for, and he arrived an hoiiv before the young mother'  died. She lived only to place the child  in. Rudolph's arms.  "I should like lilm; td be called  Bertie," she said, "and I intrust lilm  to you���������you and  Nest."  They both knelt by her side. ..< She  took a hand of each,, and held It in  Jicr own.  "No trust could be moro scared than  this which I confide to you both," she  said. "Take care of, my little' son. I  leavec him to y.ou; let him: be to you  as a Kon of your own. You will look  after" his Interests, Rnudolpli; it will  be, many a day before the broad lands  of Brooke fall to him. Nest, you have  been like a. sister to me; fake care of  my child.

And, kneeling -there, they promised  her most faithfully to care for and  cheris.ii. the child as thought it were  their   own,  I will tell the remainder of the.story  in Sir Rudolph's own 'words. He was  still kneeling by the side of the bed,  and  his  tempest  of grief was'over.  "Kate, you Will perhaps understand  me best," he said, "when ; I tell you  that from the moment the young  mother, dying, placed the child in my  arms, I loved it tenderly. I am not  ashamed," continued Sir Rudolph, "to  tell you that I 'knelt.down and kisse."  the little face of my brother's son, that  I promised loyal  fealty and  true "err  vice to him. I promised to look after  his interests as though they were my  own.  "'Sir Albert Culmore of Brooke I' I  said, saluting in soldier, fashion the  baby-heir.  "We had taken the child into the  nursery which the poor young mother  had prepared with such loving care.  We installer to Sir Bertie In! great  state. A nurse had been engaged for  hltin. She was a tall, staut woman;  and she sat before the'llre with tho little bundle of white flannel and whlto  lace on her knee. Her name was  Martha Jennings.  "Do you think the little one is strong,  nurses.?'  I asked.  " 'No one can  tell,  sir,' she answered,   'at   this; age.    It   will    be   tiglnst  lilm,    poor      little    child,    losing    his  mo'.hoi'.  "I laid my hand upon Nest's.sholder.  "'This lady will bo the most tender  of mothers to him,'  I said.  "Rut the nurse shook her head.  "'A child  litis  but one  mother,   sir.'  sho said.  "Nest  bent  down   to  kiss him.  "-I Will bo a, loving mother to you,  baby,'  she said.  "And I wondered if the mother in  Heaven could see the fair little child  lying there, with Its two protectors.  Nest and myself.   Ali, poor Nest I"  "Lady Culmore was laid to sleep by  her husband's, side, and I wrote for  prolonged leave of absence. If not the  heir to tho estate, I was the agent for  it���������steward for the child and Ills-rights.  The leave of absence was granted, and  I vvas very busy. There was much to  do iiisettllng the.affairs of the estate.  Ulric came down to help meWhenever  he could. ��������� I grew to love my fair little .���������nephew**-;''" -used..to call lilm the  chieftain. I made It a practice to  kneel by tho pretty cot where he slept  and pray for him. I liked to go, thero  in the morning and at night. A tender  passionate love vvas growing in my  heart for the baby-heir, my dead  brother's son. True, the little fellow  had deprived mo of title, estate and  wealth; but I did not seem to love  him one jot the less. The nurse smiled when sho saw me kneeling by tho  cot, kissing the little hand, y I: always  like to remember that one day she  taid  to me���������  " 'You are a good man, sir. Excuse  me, but some gentlemen vvouid hate a  child vv)io:had come between them" arid  such a property.'  "I laughed, for this seemed absurd  and contemptible.

" 'Do not encourage such thoughts,  ��������� much.'less utter theni, Nest,' I said.  " 'Nevertheless it does' seem strange,  Rudolph,' she persisted; 'that such a  tiny child should depriveyou of everything.'  .   " 'We. were   all   tiny   children    once  upon a time,' I replied.  "I knew that Nest cried at times  over what seemed the hardness of our  fate. There' was .no"prospect of our  marriages for some-time yet. ,  "One morning Mrs. Jennings, told  me that the child was not well, aiieT  a littlo late a letter came from headquarters, saying that our regiment"  was ordered abroad, ...���������������������������' though not. on  active service. The news was almost  a death-blow to Nest. She clung to  me, poor child, weeping passionately.  I must not go, she said; she .would die  if -1 left lier. I soothed and calmed  her. I told her that, it I went, she  must remain, and take good care of  the little' heir. I shall never;forget  her anguish at tne thought of our  separation.  "I must hasten to the end of my  story.

'  "I must confess now that tliere were  ���������times when I felt uneasy about Nest.  She was so changed. She seemed to  love me, If possible, more than every.  She was most devoted to me, but she  puzzled me. She was abstracted, and  did not seem quite sure of hers-*-!.  "About a week before Christmas Day  Mrs. Jennings was taken suddenly ill.  Nest seemed much distressed. We sent  for the doctor from Avonsleigh, and he  pronounced her to be in great danger.  At first no one thought much of her  illness, nor did we'say anything before  our friends���������the house was filled with  guests���������lest they should be nervous.  One of the house-maids undertook to  nurse her, and we hoped for tho best.  At nine o'clock ..on' "the morning ot  Christmas Eve Iwas'as happy as any  one in England. I rose from the breakfast table, after making plans for the  day with my guests. Nest met me in  the hall, where the men-servants had  jsut placed a great bunch of mistletoe. 1  took up a spray, and held it over Nest's  head. As I saw her face then I never  beheld it more.: I kissed the lips that  had never worn anything but the  sweetest smiles for me, nnd at the same  moment the housemaid who was in attendance, on  the sick woman1 came  to  so deeply engrossed in giving the child   should bless even death at your hands!'  the fatal dose.

She is much worse, and she  want3 to see you.'  "I was on the point of saying that I  would go at once, when 1 saw a terrible change came over my wife's face.  She looked for one moment as though  sho vvas going to faint. She clasped  my hand and said:  " 'You. must not go, Rudolph. It Is  only a woman's foolish fancy.'  " 'I can not refuse the poor creature.    I must go,  Nest,' I said.  " 'You shall not !' she cried desperately and she clung to me with such  eariiestjiesst'iat I could hardly free  myself.  " 'Why do you wish me not to see  her, Nest '!' 1 asked.  " 'Bccaut-e'she: is wicked and malicious,' was the answer. 'She vvill tell  you anything. She has mad fancies.

I thanked  Heaven, as I stood by the little one's  side, that even-In" my thoughts I had  never wished hini harm, that I had  never feir one moment grudged him his  rich inheritance, nor feltcthat he was  In my way." e,  Sir Rudolph paused for a-few moments, looking earnestly on the face ot  his dead wife. Then he turned to us  again.  "When the: child died, you remember, 'Ulrle, .1 sent at once for you. I  succeeded to the title and estate.' 1  was sorry for the child; but It had  been such a fragile life that I did not  greatly mourn. Wc burled the little  one. Nest then went back to? her  aunt, and It, was arranged that she  should remain with her until we were  married. ��������� I did not think it strange  4Jhat she should . suggest taking the  nurse, Martha Jennings, with her. Tlie  woman professed great attachment to  her, while Nest seemed to rely greatly  on her. Nor, when we were married,  did I think it strange that .Nest should  wan,t .to br(ng the nurse; with her to  Brooke Hall. I imagined that she liked  her for my little nephew's sake, and  that the child formed a tie between  them which women only could understand.  "The cloud caused by so many deaths  hung over us for some time, and then  gradually we learned to look back on  the past with calmness. "Ve were  young and I was more happy with* -my  wife than words can tell. You know,'  both of you, how she loved me. I think  no ma/i |n the world was every more  beloved.  "I remember that my first sensation  of uneasiness arose from noticing how  completely Nest was 'under the control  of the!! nurse; and I did not altogether  like the woman's manner to her. More  than once I found my wife In tears,  nnd when I inquired the reason she put  mc off with an evasive answer. Yet.  Heaven knows, these were but trifles  which brought mo no glet������n) Of suspicion nt the reality to come,  "1 wish," continued Sir Rudolph,  "that I were not compelled to tell you  it.  mo  "'I can not reruFe-tht: request of a  dying woman,' I said, more sternly  than I had ever spoken to her before;  but   you   can   come  with   me.

I went . down-stairs, but Miss  Hazlewood's look haunted me. Nol  that I- had any fear; I would rather  have suspected a saint of doing harm  to the child than Miss Hazlewood. I  could not rest down-stairs. I went  back. I saw Miss Hazlewood on her  knees by the side of the cradle. She  h'kd a ltt{Ie bottle in one hand and a  spoon in the other. As I walked In  at the door, I saw her, with a steady  hand, drop two drops from the bottle  Into the spoon. Then, before I could  cross the room, before I had time to  speak, the child had swallowed the  contents of the teaspoon. I caught  her, as I may say, red-handed.

She fell at  my feet, groveling, crying out that it  was such a fragile little life, and that  it parted you from her. She clung to  me with cries and tears.

" 'Do you know, Sir Rudolph,' said  the nurse, 'I do not think that up to  that time she had looked upon the  deed as murder?

'But the child did not suffer  one minute; it died at once. ; Well, sir,  Miss Hazlewood cried, wept, prayed,  pleaded, until at last I promised ,not  to tell her secret; but I can not keep  it in death.' -  ..

"I told her. in grave, measured  words, that We must part that night,  never more to meet.

But she  was a woman, and: my wife���������  1 .could not see her hanged.y I hesitated,  as It seemed to me, between two sins���������  screening, a murderer, and giving up  to, justice' the wile who had sinned for  me.

She clung to me,.!sho knelt at my  feet, she prayed and pleaded with such  passionate despair that. It might almost  have moved a heart of stone. What  she had done had been; done for love'of  me. What, did that little fragile life  matter? ~~"hat was it In comparison  with my fortune, my love and hers?  I saw that what the old nurse had said  was true���������she did not regard the deed  she'had committed as murder.  "Ah, j-ou cannot tell what it was to  me to have the woman I loved best In  the world crouching In; tears at my  feet! This woman, weeping, praying,  was my darling Nest; the face I had  loved, the white hands I had kissed  and caressed, were those of a murderess, and that murderess was my wife!  Hour after hour passed on!that terrible  Christmas Eye. We were still together,  and I .was unable tp deplde what to  do. I could not give her up to justice.  She was my wife, and she had sinned  for mc; yet the murder was none the  less a terrible one. No man was ever  more wretched or; more bewildered.  Poor Nest, how she loved me! Sho  crouched at my feet in an agony of  tears, and I could not soothe her, Pllp  was iv-firr! and exhausted with the passion of her grief. ���������  "'Do not send me from you, love!'  she cried, in a voice like that of a  dying woman.   'Kill nie, if you will. X  dolph,' sho said, 'to make you happy.  "And I know* It was true. I could not  give her up to justice, and I certainly  could not take hot* to my heart again,  although she had sinned for me.  "Wo had been three hours together  when a sudden idea occurred to me.  We could be husband and wife no more.  I could never kiss; the face of a murderess; 1 could never touch the hands  that had taken the life of that fair  little child. All was over between my  once beloved Nest jp.ilmc���������over forever. But I could .shield her in some  measure.. She should never, if I could  help iti mix with the world again. The  idea occurred to me to bring hor tc  ,l"llnmerc~n6 place could be more out  of. the world���������and to live out: here the  remainder/of our sorrowful lives apart.  I would keep her secret on those conditions. She miiit be content to live  alone without friends or visitors.  "For myself, so hot was my Indignation, thai I swore I would never touch  lier hands again; and she promised that  she would never even lay a finger on  me. Poor Nest! She broke lhat promise only once. We were to live together,  ���������that is,.under one roof���������but were to  be further apart than strangers; more  than the bitterness of death lay between us. She was mover to approach  my rooms nor I hers. We wore to  speak only whelm necessity compelled  us*'.'So"I hoped to compromise matters,  t'> punish her for her sin, and in some  measure to shield her from the consequences. Yet I felt that I had made a  most miserable compromise.  "I remember that she looked at me,  a hopeless despair shining In her eyes.  " 'Rudolph,' she said,, 'the sentence  you have passed is heavier than the  sentence of death ; but I accept It, and  submit  to it,  coming from you.'  "Then came two or three days that  r shall never forget, the abrupt breaking up. the party of fr*cr. "s, the surprise of the servants. Some of them I  left in charge of Brooke! the two. most  faithful I brought here. I left orders  for the funeral of the old nurse, who  died a few hours after she had confessed that miserable secret to me���������  and then we came here.  ."Here wc* have lived since in the'very  depths of misery. I adhered strictly" to  the rules laid down. I could not forgive  my wife her-crime, although I knew it  had been committed _from love of me.  Every day it grew more horrible in my  eyes.and every day the distance between us increased. Every time I saw  those hands of hers I fancied them  holding the fatal close, until I���������oh, may  heaven forgive me !���������until I hate her. I  never: looked at her, I never heard the  sound of lier voice, without thinking of  the murdered child.  "Only heaven knows the misery o������  our life. She asked me once to go with  her to church at Ulladale, and I laughed in scorn. A vile criminal, and the  man who had .hidden the murder, of a  child, and that child his own brother's,  at church! No; the bare idea was revolting-to  me.  "I remember one morning she came  to mc and knelt at mv feet. She prayed  me to give her one kind word, one kind  look, and I repulsed her. She loolcoJ  at me long and steadily.  ' "Rudolph,'   she  said,   'your  conduct  Is right, no doubt; but I would rathenj.]  have been hanged."  "After that I noticed a great change  in her. 1 do not think, frankly speaking.that she never realized the enormity  of her sin. I believe there had always  beeria faint hope in her heart that I  should forgive her-and take her .back  again, poor child! The stories that I  hoard from the servants about lier  were so deplorable that I decided on  finding���������a���������companion���������fdr- h"crrJ~-]Cator  who came as poor Nest's companion,  vvill be your.wife, Uh'ic;;anei.may heav-  e'l  send  you  a- happier  lot   than  has  .ai.cii to ii'ic:  "I could never tell you v.-hf.t I have  sufl'eiod.
