How rapidly the year., roll bv. It  seems hut yesterday since Christmas  of '97 was celebrated in-Itevelstoke by  Christmas gifts and Christmas carols;  since friends were taking friends by  hy the hand and wishing theni all A  Merry Christinas; since youngsters  were dreaming of Santa, Cl.ius and all  his I re-.sure.; since the old, old story  of Bethlehem was being told in every  va'*iety of phrase in churches and in  homes; since family gathering!) without number hailed Christinas as the  brightest day of all the year, and since  multitudes on the last eve of this  great Christian festival, raised their  song of gladness, with which was  mingled the exalting hope that thus  they would all meet in coming years.  But the weeks have passed rapidly by,  aud Christmas is again at the door before the echoes of its last rejoicing  have fairly died upon the ear. \Vinter  with its gloomy rigour, spring with its  sunshine and showers, its buds and its  blossoms;. summer with its burning  heats; and autumn with its golden  fruitage���������all nave come and gone1, so  that before we. could well say of 1898,  "It is new," it has become old, and in  a few days will have disappeared entirely and forever. And so Christmas  has again come round 1 How the distant and the near are breinglib into  strange and striking contact!' How  men's thought .wander back over  eighteen hundred years nnd more, and  in iinuiagination yet cine-e again .stand  by the cattle crib "where was cradled  in lowliness that wondrous One, who  has been for all these intervening centuries such a power among the'sons ot  men, moulding their thought, refining  their feelings, elevating "their ambitions, stimulating in every way their  varied energies,��������� and -awakening, as  well as retaining among their countless   niyraids,   a  love    which    manv  varied opinions about the mere day,  and whether or not it is the one. on  which Christ was really born, ha*  come with multitudes tobe a season  of blessed uieniorie., of nn'iiiorii's  stretching far into the past, of memories gathering up the varied details  of personal and family liistoiies, of  individual life at once of failure and  success, so let il stand. Whether that  real day was in June or December  matters now but little. In the one  case, as in tho other Chr'tstmiis will  tell Us own history and enforce its  own moral for tlioso who keep it  whether as a holy day or a holiday  will do so to little purpose unless they  cultivate that Jove which they commemorate and I'liibody their professions in words of kindness and deeds  of charity.  Humblest of peasants, proudest of  inonarchs, wisest of sages, simplest of  children, the rude and the refined, the  tyrant and his drudge", the statesman  and his tool, they who held the plow  and he who ruled the harvest, the  child of luxury, nnel the homeless  outcast, the honored and the despised,  lisping childhood and stammering,  tottering age, all, each, in his and her  own way with more or less intelligence and emotion, turning aside to  behold this great sight, and wondering  when not adoring as they caught and  catch the echo of the hvmn Unit ia old  yet ever new, "Glory to God in the  Highest and on earth Peace."  Those of ns who have left our homes  iu the east and settled down in the:  west in this land destined to be the  greatest mining country in the Empire, our thoughts will turn homeward  anel many a wish will be ntteied to  meet again with .father and mother  and friends neglected and forgotten,  Ifallthe promptings of onr" better  natures which come upon us at this  season of the. year were lived up to  what a bright woild this would lie. It  is with this feeling that the Kk__~.a~-.~~"  wishes its readers A MERRY X.MAS.

Contrary to the advice of old-timers,  who realized that the trip was a dangerous one, in viow of tlie recent  storms,'the party set out with light  outfits. It. was storming very hard  when thev crossed the summit, but  they succeeded in reaching Crater  Lake, where the blizzard foi bed theni  to camp, although it. was but seven  miles to their destination. While  encamped there, tons of ice and snow,  mixed with rocks and timber, swept  over tlicm, evidently without warning, and went on down the valley,  leaving them buried under several  feet of hard snow.

To Make Your Home Attractive  Virtual Conservative Victory  Montreal, Dec. 22.���������The Conservative's gained a notable victory Monday  in electing Mr. Arthur Plante to fill  the vacane-y for Beauharnois in the  Quebec Legislature, Mr. Plante defeated Mr. Wilfrid Mercier, the Liberal candidate, by a majority of 53  vote3. At the: last election Mr" Bisson.  since appointed Prothonotary.defeated  Mr. Louis Beaiiblen by 272. The result  is all the more remarkable when the  influences brought- to bear for Mr.  Plantfi's defeat are taken into consideration. Mr. Mercier openly declared  himself to be Mr. Tarte's man. and the  Minister of Pivblic; Works used all his  iii'li'Miee to elect his man. Mr. Tarte's  man, has, however, met a similar fate  to that-sustained by Mr. Tarte himself, when he was "defeated by Mr.  Bergeron. Mr. Plante, the newinem-  ber.is a clever young French-Canadian,  who give _��������� promise of playing a conspicuous roll in Quebec politics.  Ir. Mississiquoi, Dr. Colloh,. who also  had the weight of both tlie Dominion  and Quebec governments cast in his  favor, narrowly escaped defeat,  beinc:  returned bv a   majority of onlv 42,  while Mr.  Me.Caskill,  Liberal,  at the  la-st election, hud a majority of over  400. .

On the whole, the day  was  a.   satisfactory   one   for   Quebec  Conservatives.  At. the close of choir practice in the  Methodist church on Wednesday  evening. Miss.

BOURNE BE.OS.  waters could never quench, which, for  multitudes, has turned prisons into  vestibules of heaven, made tortures  welcome, and death itself, even in its  most repulsive form, an humble servant--nay, an obedient slave, and at  the same time a most welcome friend.  But myriads who think littlo or not  at all about Bethlehem's wonders, or  of the inlinite. variety of circumstances  and feeling, in which men have given  thanks to Heaven for the angels'  message and the angelB* song, have  yet somehow fonnd.'aud will this year  find, Christmas elay one of the most  notable of all the year. Memory will  he busy���������far busier than even imagination. As they repeat once more.  '��������� Christmas has come againl" thc days  of other years will come back. The  shadows of othei"' Christniases will  rise from the buried past. The then  and the now will once stand side by  side. The sound Of voices that.have  long been still will again be heard.  Faces that have long since been dust,  will in the mind's eye again put on  all their old beauty and affection. In  many "a case there will be felt some-  ���������'like the touch of a vanished hand.'  And old, old days will again appear as  if tbey were indeed the world's now.  Who shall say how many hard and  hardened men of the worlel experience  at such a season more than one touch  of strangely unwonted tenderness?  How maiiy steel cold eyes have then  at least the wondrous baptism of  tears? In any case multitudes by the  Christmas memories of Christ's history  and their own have found themselves  sttengthened and encouraged amid  life's work and cares, and have thereby been helped to rise on "stepping  stones of their dead selves to higher  things,*' and the.y will continue to do  so in the years that are to come.

A Sad Tragedy  Shortly before going to press the  startling news was received of the  death under peculiarly tragic circum-  stjincos of Miss Ethel Curry, of Eve-  leigh street says the Vancouver News-  Advertiser of Wednesday. Details received were necessarily meagre, but it  appears that the poor girl had. under  thc influence of dejection and grief,  caused by a quarrel with her fiance,  eneleel her lifo by her own hand, poison  being the means employed. Death  was apparently not instantaneous,  but the doctors who were hastily  summoned, were unable to aid the  sufferer, wno died a few minutes after  their arrival,  Rat Portage is Wild  Rat Portage is wild with excitement  over a marvellous strike made in the  Mikivdo gold' mine. The marvelous  find is located in the-stupe between  the 150 and 200 font*' level. Tlie stope  is 40 feet high. The vein at that point  narrowed down to 2", feet. In the  head of this stope. the wondei ful ore is  located, wiiich is so rich- that the  management is li.vi.ding it up in barrels, and do not intend to put it  through the mill, the intention being  to send it direct to mint or smelter.  The entire stope is filled with this ore.  Samples of it have been- brought to  town and conservative and reliable  mining men estimated that the- ore  wa3 five per cent, pure gold, or over  $45,000 per ton. The mine is owned  in England. At a-low estimate-there  is now"a, quarter of a mi'dion dollars-  in sight. The latest advices say the  vein is widening with no decrease in.  value. The length and depth of the  ore body is not yet detertuined.  On Easy Street-  Those reading lietween the- lines  profess to have discovered a-storm  behind the placid front of the provincial government. Tlie Province,  wkich was started to echo the  thoughts of Mr. Jcie Martin, ha- been  making very sarcastic remarks anent  Mr. F. Gaiter-Cotton,- the Minister of  Finance, and the attack by tbat journal on Mr. Sword, who up to this time  has been running thegovernment with  Mr. Joe Martin, is. to say the least,  peculiar. The Province is glad Mr.  Sword has resigned his position as  Mr. Semlin's secretary and brains, and  trusts "that in the event of his defeat  in Cowichan," which it is evidently  anxious for, " that He will stay resigned." The opposition, we are glad  to say,' are thoroughly united. Tliey  do not find it nee__sary_ to blow- about  their future.  Be Liberal As You Can. {  1 The distribution of the good  things  of life at Christmas time is always in  order and its carrying out will'-bring .  joy to the hearts of some poor folks iu  whose homes there is too little of the  sunshine of life. -How true it is thnt'  one half of the world does not know  how   the other half lives.   In every  community there are  always   to   be  found some  who have .been unfortunate and upon  whom  prosperity has'  not smiled, and to lisrhten  the lot of.  these is-the duty   of  those  who" are  enjoying all the comforts of life and  have;'reaped a liberal   share   of this  world's goods, for after nil  we are all'  the descendants of the original ancestors    and   in   the  end   onr   common  inheritance is six feet ot earth. - ���������  .

But to-niglit something had made lilm  nc-votis. He was closo to a grcnt happiness, and perhaps the thought of having  It almost within his grasp lind excited  and unnerved him. It only wanted a  lOiith���������four paltry weeks���������to tho timo  when he would bo free to claim tho prettiest girl In all the country as his wife,  and tho thought filled him with a fever  of Impatience Ho was thinking of her  now as tho wind rattled round the houso  und screamed down tho chimney; and he  was wondering vaguely what lincl become  of the man for whom sho hnd onco foolishly promised to wait five years. Now  the five years had ncnrly expired, nnd he  lind ninde no sign. Never once in all  thnt, timo hud ho been hceiril of, and  Nellio Kiloy hnd given him up as dead,  and hnd grown to look with regret upon  the reckless promise sho had given him.  As tho doctor sat over his firo the  storm outside disturbed his thoughts.  The screaming of tho wind jarred upon  him, and he seemed to bo expecting  something���������what, lie scarcely knew; but  nfc the first spund of a distant gun ho ���������  started to his feet, nnd peered out of the  window into the darkness beyond.  Ho could seo nothing. A heavy rain  covered tho window panes, and in the'  pitch blackness nothing was distinguishable except n dull gus lamp thnt flickered  spasmodically opposito the house.  When a second gun sounded, Dr. Clegg  hastily put on his overcoat and a tight-  fitting cap, and sallied forth into the  night.  On his doorstep he collided with a fisherman, who caught him by tbe arm and  turned back with him.  "I was -jisb ncomln' for yc, sir I" he  shouted hornsely. ns tho wind shrieked  past in fresh fury. "There's a ship a-  lying jist off the l"int, and we're afenred  as there'll be somo blnck work afore the  night's out."  Dr." Clegg's thin face grew eager. He  felt the blood stir in ��������� his veins at the  thought of notion, and he stumbled on  through tho darkness, with the wind  and rain beating furiously into his face,  until they reached the bench.  There, under the cliffs, the wind  seemed quieter, but beyond, tho sea was  a swirling, inky mas3 that roared and  Ehrieked and tossed itself in foamy waves  against the treacherous rocks thnt lined  the coast. The winel, that seomed to tear  at the shingle like a wild beast, swept  up every now nnd then in a blinding  hurricane of min, nnd tho crowd of village folks that hnd gathered at the sound  of tho guns huddled together closer  ngninst the cliffs.  Dr. Clegg strained his eyes across the  "ci-ily sea. The lifeboat hnd gono out,  but the darkness was impenetrable, nnd  >he people waited in almost breathless  fileuce for a rocket that would show  them for a brief instant its whereabouts.  When it came at last���������when tho faint;  red light shot out in the direction of tho  sinking ship���������there was a sudden stir  amoi-g tbe crowd.

Everyone in Kestcrwick remembers tho  vrreck of the Vulture. There was scarcely  a .house or a hut that night that was not  j thrown open to receive sonic   poor, half-  | drowned   creatures   from   the   sea;   and  ! there was scarcely a soul   in  Kestcrwick  who did not   spend   the   greater part of  thdt terrible night  in   hasty,   breathless  wrk upon the bench.  , When at last Dr.   Clegg   left the shore  to mnko his way   home,   a stormy dawn  was bre-akincr. The clouds were beginning  to scud away acre, s tho sky, and the sea  was settling clown into   sullen   murmuring.  Dr. Cl"gg w-.io worn out and exhausted  with the events of the night. He crawled  hiime wearily, and made his way upstairs; but, 1^'fore he threw himself upon  his bed, lie looked in upon a man who  had b������.'n brought to his  house   from tho  ' wreck somo hours before.  He was lying, now tossing feverishly  with the grt-y dawn casting a strange  pallor upon his bronzc-rt skin, and with  his long, thin bands clutching uncertainly nt the bedcir.th"���������>.  Clegg stopped for a moment to examine him. He was n strange, rough-looking fellow, weather-beaten and careworn,  nnel with thick brown hnlr, growing a  little grey nt the temples, with deep  lines scored upon his face.  Yet in spite of this, it was a young  face. It was a young face grown prematurely old; and Dr. Clegg stared ut It  for some time, trying in vain to remem-  lier where ond when he had seen lt before.  It seemed strangely familiar to him.  Something In tho curve of tho lip and  thn outline of tho ohln roused an uneofly  feeling -within him; and when tho man  suddenly opened his eyes, and -tared np  into his face, the belief that he hnd seen  : him h-foro becanv stronger thnn ever.  Mb forgot his weariness anel   exhaustion,  ' _.nd sat down by tho bedside.  i     "Where nm I?" tbe mnn nuked   feebly.  | His voice w.is rcfln-M���������tljo voice of nn  i'ncateil mnn, nnel In strange contrast to  .vs weather-beaten fnco and   hands,   and  1 to 'he coarse clothes that wero lying on  a cb_ir close by. Clegg watched him enr-  loiifiy as he told him of   the   storm   and  , tho wreck; but the man listened almost  Indifferently until ho mentioned tho  name of tho village; Then ho started,  and tried to lift himself ln bed.  "Kestorwlck!" he cried hoarsely. "Did  you say Kestcrwick."  j      Clegg nodded.  "Then, we're only threo miles from  Craswick," ho went on, a littlo wildly.  "Only throe miles!"  Ho Bank hick ln lied nnd closed his  eyes. Clegg noticed that his lips wet-  tightly set, und that ono hand slowly  clenched and unclenched itself on the  coverlet.  It wns the middle of tho morning boforo the doctor roused himself from his  hnsty rest, and went Jn to see his patient  again. Ho found him awake and conscious; but a glnnco at his faco was  sufficient to tell him that there was somo  internal injury which ho had not noticed  in his hurried examination tho. night beforo. Ho sat down nnd looked ut lilm  carefully. The man's eyes were still rest-  loss and bright; but there was a look of  determination on his face, and something  on his mind evidently still troubled him.  "Doctor, I want to speak to you," ho  said fuintly. "I feel very 111 and queer,  and maybe���������mnybo I shan't be ablo to  later on."  "Nonsense!" said Clegg; "we'll 60on  put you right. You must lio here for a  day or two, and then you'll be as well  as ever you were."  Tho other shook his head,   j       .-,. .  "I must tellyounow," he said doggedly. And tho doctor gave way. -   -  "Very well; but I can't   allow   you to  exhaust yoursolf," he said. "If I see you  getting excited, I shall stop you."  The man took no notice. He fixed his  eyes on Clegg's face, and went on as if  he had not heard.  "I used to live in Craswick," ho said  abruptly. "I had n farm there���������a rotten  old farm it was, too; but it was all I'd  got, and I had to "stick to lt. ,It would  havo been good onough if ��������� I could have  spent a little money on it. I could have  mado it a sound property; but I hadn't  a ha'penny���������not a h'penny to spare.  "My uncle���������you may remember my  uncle. His namo was Bainbrldgo and he  was a rich landowner about here; and  when things began to grow bad I went  ~to"h"iifi_te_rtiy"and bofrown"fow hundreds.���������  He laughed at nie. Ho rattled tho monoy  in his pockets, and sneered, and told mo  that he'd wait until I was drained out,  and then tako tho farm himself.  'Ho had always hated mo. My father  and he hnd quarrelled years ago, and  never mado It up. That's why ho was so  bitter; and in timo I became bitter,- too.  "I went to him again later on, when  I was beginning to grow reckless. Everything was going to rack and ruin for tho  sake of a little money. Every month it  grew harder and harder to moot my hills;  every month something had to go; and I  sank down and clown, until I began to  soo thut there was only ono way out of It  ���������to sell thc placo for whut it would  fetch and clear out.  "But somehow���������somehow I couldn't  do it. There _wns Nellie���������poor littlo Nol-  lle! I couldn't find it in my heart to  leavo hpr."  Tlio man stopped and tunrcd away Ids  face.   Tho doctor watched him eagerly.  " What Nellie?" lie asked hoarsely, and  the mnn turned. His fnco was transfigured. There was n light in his eyes, and  a smile upon his lips.  "She was the prettiest little girl you  ever.saw," ho said. "There was no ono  liko her���������no one like my little Nell."  He stopped again, unci liis eyes wandered vacantly aiiout tho room.  "Her name?" cried tho doctor impatiently. "Tell mo her mime!" His voice  was broken and husky; but tho man on  tlio bed   did not notice.  "Nellie���������Nellio KIley," ho whispered.  "Poor little Nellio Itlley! I must havo  brought her n lot of pain, but I never  meant It. God knows I never meant it!"  Tho doctor wns staring at him with a,  wild, whito faco.  "And your name?" he cried. "What's  your name?" "  "Mine?" said the man wearily. "Mine?  What docs It matter? Jt used to bo Tom  Wheeler; but it isn't now. Oh, no, I  changed it long since���������long since, when  I���������I���������" He broke off and looked up hurriedly.  "Where wns If he asked. "What wuh  I telling you? Oh, about Nellie. We wero  going to lie marrieel, of course. I nlways  mennt to marry her, ever sinco I first  saw her; but whnt could I do wlth-o  fnrm like that? I asked her at last one  night. J couldn't help it, she looked so  pretty; but I lielicvo now It was only  pity���������pity for me that made her promise."  Boor littlo Nellie 1 I told her I'd give up  tho farm and go tb America to see if I  could do better there, and she promised  to waltjfor me���������to wait, five years; and  If I did nothing then she wns to be free.  "But I don't bollovo she really loved  me, and lt wns selfish.' Oh," I know lt  was cruel of me to ask her to keep a  uroalsB like that but I" was mad ~~r_th  lovo for her, and I holleved I should come  back in a year or two" at most.  "So I shut up the farm. I sold it, for a  trifling sum, and then, tho night boforo  I left, an hour after I had wished Nollio  good byo I���������I murdered lily unclol".  The man stopped, and looked towards  Clegg. Ciegg' had risen and wns staring  out "of tho window, but at Whcoler's last  words ho turned.  "Murdored your unclo?" ho repeated  stupidly.  "Yes," said the other dully, "murdered lilm! IIo was an old man, and no  match for mo when my blood wns up. I  met lilm In tlin lanu just outside his  house. It wns quito by accident, and ho  sneered and laughed at ine, and rattled  tbe money in bis pocket, ngain, and called  ine a beggar. I was wilel before, but I  was mini "now. I forgot everything excont  that ho hud cheated mo of my farm h'or  the sake of u littlo money that, ho refused  to lend nie, I was obliged to run nway.to  leavo Nellie and every bit of happiness I  possessed. Do ynu wonder I hated hhn?  Do you wonder that I struck hlni when  he taunted mc?  "I struck him bard, but I had no Idea  I hail given bim such a blow until I saw  blm stretched nt my feet. Ho had fallen  without a word, and after ho fell ho  never moved again.  "1 bent down on my knees. I tried to  bring back somo lifo into him; but lie  was dead���������dead"as a ntono!  "When I quito realized that, n paulo  seized mo I got up and rushed away  down tho lane to tbo station. I mot no  ono.

I came intending: to make  my confession to the police. You know  how it l-.iis been thwarted, how the  storm���������"  "Yes, yes," the doctor interrupted  hoarsely. "I know."  Ho was thinking���������thinking, oh, how  wearily!���������of his rolleeitions of tho niglit  before! of his delighted belief that in a  month's time Nellio Biloy would be free  for him to claim her. Ho felt sure sbo  loved liini, but, ber promise to Tom  Wheeler bound her. Now���������now the doctor  felt that all the world wns sliding from  his grasp, and it was bitter indeed.  When be spoke it was only by a supreme effort.  "You���������you   are -mistaken,"  "Your uncle was nut dead I"  The man started up.  ."What?" ho shouted hoarsely,  Say that again!"  Tho doctor choked back ' something in  his throat, and turned away.  "Your Uncle Bainbridgc was only injured���������not killed," he said. "Uo was ill  for a week or.two, and then recovered,  and ho died n year ago. IIo never said  what caused him to fall, ho never mentioned your quiuTi'l, and ho left you  .everything ho possessed."  Wheeler, stared wildly at the doctor.  Ho clutched at. the bedclothes, he struggled for a moment evcul madu an effort to  speak, and then broke Into pitiful, weak  sobbing.  III.

"Como up," she said hastily. "Como  up at once! He has fainted, nud the look  of his fnco frightens mc."  Clegg did not wait; ho ' ran from the  room without a word, and, onco upstairs, tho sight of the prostrate man  killed all bitter feelings he had once  entertained towards lilm. Ho was lying  half unconscious, with his eyes closed,  and with a look of terrible suffering on  his white   face.  As tin; doctor came towards him, he  moved slightly and opened his eyes.  Clegg saw a look of pain cross his ffiice;  ho noticed the sudden contraction of his  brow, and tho quivering of his lips, nnd  almost Involuntarily he stretched out his  hand towards him.
