A. Darragh. .--������������������  (From Our Own Correspondent.)  ��������� Camborne, *B. C, March 14.���������Plans  are maturing for an excursion of Indiana people to visit tlie Fish river camp  about the middle of next August.  Such was the announcement made.to  the correspondent of the Herald in  an interview' had with J. A. Darragh,.  manager of the Tinworkers' Gold Mining Company of Elwood, Indiana. Mr.  Darragh is here to close up some ��������� ..  business in connection -with the bond- '* ������  ing of the Silver Dollar group from  the estate of the late Joe Best,  has been travelling extensively through  the states of Ohio and Indiana interesting people and investors in the  mines of this section of the Lardeau.  Mr. Darragh expressed himself as well  pleased with the outlook for future  operations, and is particularly sanguine regarding an.influx of capital  from the' places he has visited. In  conversation he said :  "The Tinworkers' Gold-Mining Company has been organized for some  time. It is composed, principally of  Indiana7 investors who became interested in the Copper Dollar mine on  which "we have done considerable  work.'. This season however we shall  confine our operations to' developing  the Silver Dollar group, consisting of  five claims, situated on Mohawk creek.  tion of the various camps during the  summer and while tho proposition  may lay dormant for some time it is  by no means to bc laid on the shelf.  Capital, he asserts, is ready and willing  to invest in such an enterprise, but  must be, Assured that its investment  would in .the end prove profitable.  The opening up of the silver-lead  mines willeventually necessitate some  better method of transportation than  what at present can be had. An electric railway, would undoubtedly pay  between Camborne and Beaton.. Such  properties -as the Scout, Lucky Cup,  Mammoth, Union, Glengarry.Monitor,  Winnipeg, Kitsap,   Jim Hill, Condor  MYSTERY IS  NOW SOLVED  Dave Ferguson's Body Recovered Sunday Near Victoria in  the Brush Alongside Saanich  Road.  x ���������'t* **fr������ **t* *^*������ **fr* **fr*������ **fr* ���������'t* fti fti ���������*^*1 **fr* it* i*j*i **t*t*^'1 ***** (/JVt*i*������ t't'i. ********** ***** **********  " 'XI li" %���������������* %L* "(4tJ '+' 84r *JLl "<+."

The' group has ' a particularly well  defined'quartz lead, that-has been intelligently prospected for a distance of  over 3,000 feet by 'means of opencuts. I  Some, 150 feet of' tunneling, has also  been driven. - -This ��������� lat������ef' wort was  performed by' the late Joe Best. At  the present time 1 cannot outline our  .plans but we purpose expending a  good amount in future work. I consider the Silver Dollar as having great  possibilities of becoming a big free  milling proposition.  "Regarding the operations of the  Wide West Mining Company, with  which I am connected;" he continued,  " this company has its headquarters  in Lima, Ohio. While in -that city I  obtained assurances from the directors  that work would be prosecuted as  early as possible in the spring. I can  not say just now if I shall be in per  sonal charge of the development, but  I am safe in saying that certain suggestions I made in developing the  mine will be carried out. Tbe Wide  West has a 511-foot crosscut tunnel.  The drive cut- three galena vein's, and  these will be drifted upon and opened  up. The property is situated at the  head of Fool creek and has a good  showing."  Coining back to the proposed excursion of Indiana people Mr. Darragh  resumed: ^^That^excursioh will show  shareholders and investors what7 we  have to offer in tha Fish river camp.  I visited Elwood, Alexanderia, Anderson, Marion rand- Indianapolis people  and received assurances that they  would willingly attend such a trip. Of  course the details of transportation  and routes have to be at ranged for,  hut these will be worked out to meet  t he approval of the visitors. Such an  excursion will do an incalculable  amount of good.' When a man can  see for himself what he is investing his  money in. and believes that it is good,  he so advises his fHands.; In that way  money for mining is more easily to be  had. I cannot estimate the number  that will come for it is yet a long way  off till August. However, if nothing  happens, the excursion will come oil  you,can rest assured."  Regarding the .'; proposed electric  railway to connect Jgeatop., at tihe head  of water-transportation on the North  east: arm of the Arrow lakes, with  Camborne and the camps, Mr. Darragh stated that his plans had not  matured sufficiently.to make any definite announcement. He admitted  tbat the scheme had been laid before  his eastern clients, but for the present  it was under advisement. There is  along Fish river, Pool creek and  Salmon creek ample water power to  generate ali the electric fluid necessary. The question to be looked into  is one of possible tonnage. While  there are several properties that have  the ear-marks of pruducers, few have  reached that stage of development  that would guarantee a, continuous  supply of ore. However Mr. Darragh  intends making a thorough investiga-1  river, would shortly be placed on a  shipping basis was a railway guaranteed. Othei* galena properties on Pool  creek like!'.'������the Wide West, Beatrice,  Eclipse, Moscow and the Mohawk,  more or less development,  have, in *. some instances, already  "J^" j shipped ore,) would make up a respectable tonnage in the aggregate. These  mentioned have had considerable work  done in opening up the ore, and there  are many more whose names the correspondents-is not familiar with.  With the "proposed extensive operations by Mr. Darragh and Andrew F.  Rosenberger, the Fish river camp will  'receive an;'impetus this coming season. Then too it is announced that  the Great -Northern Mines, Limited,  will add 10 additional stamps to its  Oyster-Criterion mill, and there is  little l'eason for doubt that its neighbor, the Eva mill will likewise be  enlarged, and before long the Goldfinch mill will be again pounding out  ore.  While no announcement has been  forthcoming from the manager of the  Beatrice mine your correspondent has  every reason to believe that so soon as  the trail is 'serviceable, and tliere 4s  about a mile and a half to be fixed up,  this mine will once again be the scene  of activity.'* It: is one of the^best de  veloped silver-lead mines in the whole  camp, and besides has n* strong quartz  vein,carrying)gold values of $13.40 per  ton. This character df ore, promises  in. the future, to necessitate tbe building of a stamp mill for its treatment.  Few properties in tho Lardeau can  point to .containing both galena and  free milling gold quartz leads as the  Beatrice.  Another, property' that will receive  some attention in the way of development is the Homestead group on Mohawk creek.* ' It has a network of five  leads, all showing more-or less visible  gold by the pan. The Homestead is  owned by McKay, Strutt and Beaton.  They also* have in the Idaho'group in  the same vicinity a similar free milling  proposition.  Taken altogether both the galena  and free milling properties have prom  ise of receiving more, attention this  season than ever before. The outlook  for the Upper Lardeau is bright indeed.  Capital intelligently directed has a  good field for operation in this vicinity.  Trout Lake Items.  (From Our Own Correspondent.)  Trout Lake City, B. 0., March 10.  Andy Craig, part owner in the  HorseSlioe~"nrine, i hits refftftS5d~lfefe7  from, a trip to Revelstoke with his  partner Ed. Hillman. Their mission  was to consult with George S. McCarter who owns the remaining third,  with a view to -negotiating it sale of  the property, To the Herald cor  respondent Mr. Craig said that no deal  had been consummated but they had  had several offers.. Among thenr is the  proposition of ���������bonding the Horseshoe  to Philadelphia capitalists, represented  locally by Mr. Alexander, manager of  the Lucky Hoy mine. ? Nothing however has ?(been done. Meanwhile Mr  Craig will push development. ; The incline shaft on the vein is down some  40 feet. The' vein measures from two  and one half to three feet of mineralized ore, principally galena and gray  copper and chlorides. A paystreulf of  six inches is extremely rich.. The  high grade ore is being ������acfced and  shipped here for .transportation to the  smelter. Already six- tons are down  at Mr. Craig's barn awaiting shipment.  The oie runs from $100 to $200 per ton  in gold,������������������ silver and. lead.  The Lucky Boy, an adjoining property of the Horseshoe, have a considerable force developing aiid mining.  Rawhiding of the ore is in.'progress.  E. L. Kinman, who has the contract  for taking out one hundred million  feet of logs, is making preparations to  start the beginning of the month.  Three donkey engines will be brought  in and a complete logger outfit. Mr.  Kinman returned today from St.  Louis, Mo., whero his family  resides.  J. W. Westfall, the mining promoter litis gone to Philadelphia on a business trip.  The mystery surrounding the disappearance of David Ferguson, the  well known mining* man, has been  solved at last. Sunday afternoon his  body was found in the bush alongside  about half a mile  above Young's post office. It was  lying in a secluded spot about twenty  yards from the main highway, near  where it is joined by a small brancli.-  road, says the Victoria Times.  The discovery was made by Mr.  Pi hilott between 2 and 3 o'clock. He  had just entered the bush when he  saw what he thought was the form of  a,man lying on the ��������� ground near a  couple of dead logs. Closer investigation disclosed that such was the case  and he at once notified those* in the  neighborhood. The natural supposition was that the body was that of  David Ferguson, and the identity was  established by the [missing, man's  brother, who, having been notified  arrived on the scene not long afterwards. vt  The provincial police wero communicated with, and Corists. Cox and  Campbell, accompanied by an undertaker drove out late-in the afternoon  They found the body lying' on its face  with the arms . beneath. The hat,  collar and necktie were alongside.  Clenched in the right hand was a pearl  handled ��������� pocket knifo covered with  blood and flesh. Across the throat  was a deep gash somewhat resembling  a stab, which had severed the jugular  vein. ��������� The legs _ were extended. In  the pockets, were" $2.05 in change, a  silver watch and gold chain, a miner's  compass and a bundle of letters. The  face"/ '-was considerably decomposed,,  the hair and beard having fallen off,  but the features' were recognizable to  a certain extent. The body was clad  in a dark suit.- -The hat, which was  lying alongside, was a white fedora.  The ��������� mysterious disappearance of  David Ferguson created quite a sensation. He was in sound health, very  wealthy, in fact he had everything to  live for, and when it was reported  that he was missing his friends considered it inconceivable that he had  destroyed himself. They thought  that he had either left the city or had  been murdered. He arrived here  from the interior near the end ��������� of the  last of November and registered at  the Dominion hotel. He remained  there until December 19th, the day on  which he was last seen. It was not  until the hotel became crowded and a  room .was required that his disappearance"* was noticed. It was then  discovered that his apartment had  not been occupied for several days. At  that time, however, little was thought  of the circumstances, because Mr.  Ferguson, on a previous occasion had  left for Saanich without giving notice,  and it was presumed that he had done  the same this time.  Later, it was learned that he had  not gone, to: visit his relatives at  .Satinich.-andanxiety^as^ti^hisjvljere^l  abouts arose. On the return of liis  brother Andrew from the interior the  matter was placed in the hands of  the city and provincial police. A  reward of $1,000 for the recovery of  the body dead or alive, was inserted in  the : local press, and every effort  exerted to And a clue. Search parties  were organized, the waters about the  ��������� .    .  .     .i _: ,       .1     .i...    ^;r���������...ir.  Hay, Oats, Bran, Shorts, Feed Wheat,  Flour, Rolled Oats, Etc.

When all this search failed to reveal  any traces of the missing man his  relatives derived hope from the theory  that he had gone to California. Some  time previous to his disappearance  he had said something about leaving  the country, und intimated that when  he did he would depart very suddenly.  This was the clue the police took up  andthe reward was withdrawn from  the papers. But no trace of his whereabouts could be found in the other  cities of the coast. :  '���������'��������� David Ferguson was forty-two years  of age and was born, in Grand Bend,  Huron county, Ont. He came to this  province twenty years ago:~"and embarked in mining. He located the  townsite which now bears his name,  and with his brothers engaged in min-  ing.enterprises on an extensive7 scale.  They controlled the Triune gold mining properties, which wete subsequently sold to the Metropolitan Company,  David Ferguson retaining an interest.  He also owned a considerable quantity  of other property there, his holdings  being worth more than $100,000. He  was a capable business man and very  hopular, possessing a frank, generous  disposition, which won him a high  place in the esteem of his many acquaintances.  Mr. Ferguson leaves a father and  mother, resident at Saanich, six brothers and two sisters. AH the family,  with the exception of one sister, reside  in Victoria.  An inquest was held Monday afternoon when a verdict was returned  that deceased committed suicide when  despondent,  It is reported that Port Arthur has  been finally evacuated by the Russians  and-that now', that the coast and bays  are becoming elear"of snow and ice the  Japanese transports are landing their  troops and preparing for a strong  advance.  There was a rnmor that the Japs  had defeated the Russian land forces  with heavy loss at Tumen river but it  has hot been confirmed.  The war correspondents have been  recalled from the front which is an  indication that the Japs expect to  meet the Russian army very soon, in  the vicinity of Yalu river. Major-  General Inouyne will command the  advance of the Japanese forces.  Tliere was also a report that the  Japanese fleet had encompassed thet  destruction of the Russian fleet near  Possiet Bay, but that is doubtful as  the most authentic dispatches say the  whereabouts of the Russian fleet is  unknown.  The commercial bodies of nearly all  the principal Russian towns are voting  frdm������MtOi100"thous.-iiid=r6uble3 to the  war fund.  ...  The Korean civil authorities are  making extensive preparation to welcome the Japanese generals, Marquis  Ito and ViscOunt Aski, whom they  expect in a few days. The sympathy  and assistance of Korea will be of  great help to Japan.  Admiral Alexiif has~ordei*ed the liberation and arming of a large number  of convicts and will send them to the  front ready for the first engagement.  Curling Trophy.  The hearts of local curlers hnve been  made glad by the announcement that  next season will witness the presentation to the Kootenay Curling Association of '.the ; handsomest trophy yet  donated for competition in the country. The donors will be Samuel Birch  & Co., of London andjGlosgoiv, manufacturers of "Black, Bottle" Scotch  whiskey. Through D. Thomas & Co.,  local distributors, Rossland, the Birch  company has offered such a trophy,  and suggestions are invited as to the  model to lie adopted. "It will also be  arranged that four handsome individual prizes will accompany the trophy  each year. The association will probably decide to cut out one or more of  the present trophies in use.  Loyal Orange Lodge.  The regular meeting of L. O. L. No.  1658, will lie held in the lodge room tomorrow (Friday) evening at 8 o'clock.  All members are requested to attend.  Royal Scarlet Chapter meeting at the  close of the regular meeting.  Pauline Johnson and "Walter McRaye were greeted with a very fail-  house on Tuesday evening. Miss  Johnson does her work gracefully and  makes no attempt at anything cf  whicli she is not capable .of handling.  Of course her Indian numbers are  the feature of her work and in theia  sbe is.,"par excellence."\ In "His  Sister's Son*'���������which, by the way, is of  her own composition,���������she gives a  finished and most vivid portrayal of  frdian life and passion.  Those who -were present will remember 'the selection commences-  thus���������" My^Father Sat in HisJTepee",  With Indian costume, her perfect facial  expression and general pose, she  grasps her audience at once in those  six words and holds them throughout.  To the student of Indian life with its  sorrows and burning passions, its wild  freedom and joy, Pauline Johnson will  -  stand unequaled in her interpretation  of such characters.  Mr. McRaye has. an easy stage  presence can tell a story in capital  style and in his rendition of. Dr.  Drummond's French-Canadian stories  is inimitable.     Drunimond's sketches  o���������f_the simple hearty home life of the   Voyageur and Habitant Farmer and  their ' pathetically.' attractive way of  expressing themselves are intensely  interesting from beginning to end.  "Les Vieux Temps"���������a. charming  picture of pathos* and humor, Mr.  McRaye gave with a neat, delicate  balance and true insight, into, tho  different emotions called for by the *  selection. Likewise the description  of the singing of Albani, the French-  Canadian prima dona was carefully  interpreted.  In their tour of England next seasou  we wish Miss Johnson  and Mr.   Mc- "'-  Haye  abundant  success,    which   un- "  ':       ti'  doubtedly they will have. ���������*.  ��������� -a-  Ex-Governor Mclnnes Dead-  The death of Hon.

It is the law behind the outward life which gives color  ������nd character to everything a man  does.  Sow, what was the dominating impulse, the ruling principle of Christ's  tie, manifesting itself through everything He said and did ? Add incident  bo incident, examine into each, and  what ii apparent-? It is that Jesus  felt Himself standing underneath the  burdens of the world into which He  bad come. As He went His way, meeting people of all sorts and conditions,  His qtaick sympathy transferred all  Iheir sorrows and cares and ��������� infirmities to Himself.  In Peter's house,  in  the house    of  ffairus,  in  the  home  at  Bethany.  He  made  the  burdens  of  the    household  His own.     By Jacob's Well   He finds  a woman who seems to us at first flippant and careless.      But our Lord recognizes    that    the light    laugh'  disguises a deep concern about h;r spiritual condition  and    Hc  makes    that  concern     His   concern.       Every  yoke  that galled humanity chafed His shoulders.      It  was  a  burden-bearer    that  Israel's great prophet thought of Him  when he said : "Tlie Lord hath laid en  ���������Him the iniquity of us all."      It was  as a burden-bearer that John thc Baptist spoke of Him, "Behold thc  Lamb  of   God, 'who   beareth   away? tlie    sins  of  the   world."      Thc   law  of  Christ  .was   to   bear   others'   burdens.       Hc  came to do tht will of God  by bearing  the  burden*  of  men.  When we speak oi Christ as the Son  tti Man wc mean that He is the representative  man..     .When    St.   John  sc   wears    r.wav    ure      ecus     SW"t   milk-   and   tWO   *3IasseS   ?\  S*?Pe  al machine   ift. true, but   i������*������     Beat the eggs thoroughly, then  within   keeps    pace    with    **"   ***   s?lces  ,a,,ul   fr"''s   n"xed    ,������;  broken-down parts finds less ready ac-  ; cess   to   the   organs  and  tissues,    and  i lower vital   resistance.      The    fibrous  j structures  having,  in  iheir  overgrown  ! state,  no  proper   function   to  perforin.  , degenerate and give way to deposits oi  earthy  matter,   and   so   man   tends   to  ! return to the dust from which  he was  i formed.      How, then, to    prevent this  fibrous outgrowth, or rather retard it.  is  the problem  of  the  physician.  The great physical difference between the living machine and one  made of inert matter is that the living machine wears out with non-use  while the other wears out with use.  Friction cats away the bearings of  the steel structure, and finally the  worn-out parts must bc replaced by  others. Use wears away the cells  of the anim; '  repair from within keeps pace  wear, and in early life outstrips it, so  that the body grows and increases in  strength. When two cells are used  up in the functions of the machine,  three are called into activity to replace them.  If, then, we would keep the "noble"  elements of the body in condition to  perform their duty well and to resist  the encroachments of the "common"  elements, we must exercise them. This  does not mean that the man of fifty  must keep up the athletic pursuits he  followed at twenty, or that the man  ���������f seventy must toil with his brain  as he did at forty. The inevitable  has begun; the muscles and the brain  ire less sturdy than they were, and  caa do less ; but they still can do  much, and must not be allowed to degenerate by non-use.  The man who retires from business  at the beginning of old age and suddenly exchanges an active life for one  of sloth commits a fatal blunder. If  he lays down the burden of business  he must take up some other less ex- I  acting occupation to keep from rusting.  Exercise, mental occupation, fresh  air, moderate eating and avoidance oi  excesses of all kinds, either of activity or of idleness���������these are the  brakes on the wheel of time which  prevent a precipitate rush into old age.  ���������Youth's   Companion.

Not alono  are Japan's commercial and  financial in-  -erests ln that country greater than Uios;  of any other power, but by several  treaties,   the la3t  that of 1*102,  with  Britain,  Japan  agrees  to  maintain  the  "integrity  and   independence  of   Corea."    For   that  she went to war with China, for that sht,  will undoubtedly go  to  war  with Russia  If. the latter rejects  the proposal's made  by Japan, and which are in keeping with  tho treaties referred to.    It i.s not a cns������  of "sawins oft"  Russian   rights in Man-  ���������sliurla against those of Japan in Corea.  The latter havo been granted in properly  negotiated  treaties,  to one  ot  which,  at  least,   Russia   was   a   consenting   party,  while     those     of     Russia      in       Manchuria     havo    boon     forcibly     assumed  despite      treaties      and       solemn        assurances of a far different character.   Japan has shown wonderful patience durinc  the negotiations.   She might have attacked   Russia   in   the   far  east  months   ago  when   the  odds  were so   overwhelmingly  in her favor as to make  the victory for  her a comparatively easy  one.    She has  waited, knowing, that every day the Russian fleets and garrisons in  the east are  being strengthened;  that  every nerve is  being strained to make the weight of men  and guns on the Russian side as strong ns  it is humanely possible to do so.   And all  the   while   the  Russian  Government   has  maintained a. haughty  silence  in   regard  to the Japanese proposals.    Now  a persistent   attempt   is   being  made   by   officials and the press to show Russia ln the  light of a peacemaker, willing to recognize Japan's rights in Corea if Japan will  recognize  hers  in  Mnnchurla.    The  London Morninp Post of November 28 says  on  this point:���������"But as far as Japan is  concerned Corea does not enter Into the  present calculation.   She has laid it down  that her Interests in Corea are  of suoh  political and commercial importance that  she cannot acquiesce fn the alienation of  any paxt of that peninsula from the Emperor  of Corea.    The Emperor of Japan  and his Ministers have carefully explained from  the first that they  will neither  permit a foreign power to occupy Corean  territory, nor will they occupy suoh  territory    themselves;    Herein    they    have  shown   great   wisdom,   for   they   prevent  Russia from using a  country over which  she has no lights���������other than imaginary  rights���������as   'something to bargain  with.' "  On  November 27 The  New  York Journal of Commerce, in a long editorial dealing with  the same question,  said  this:���������  '"While  the news of one dny ln  the  far  Those whom neglected coughs  have killed were once as   healthy  and robust as you.

There  hns  of late  been  so   much  tnlk  about  the    Siberian    Railroad,   its   "fast  freight"   and   its   passenger   trains     "de  luxe,"   that  there  Is   danger   that    some  people will suppose It to be a stoam highway comparable w-lth our own transcontinental  roads,  Bays The New  York Tribune,   We have repeatedly pointed put In  these  columns  tliat,  despite  the  opening  and operation ot the  railroad,   it is still  found   best   to   send   merchandise   from  Russia to China and to the Siberian coast  b.v water. , The sea route is as quick aa  that by land, and is much cheaper. This  view, of the cpse.is amply confirmed  by  tha   latest   authentic   reports    upon   tho  Siberian   Railroad.     The   distance    from  Moscow    to   Vladivostok     ls   6,166    miles  Tho    choice    express    trains,    passenger  trains "de luxe,"   run as fast ns thirteen  and a half miles an hour.   Thus. If they  are   not   delayed,   and   are   ablo   to   keep  running   steadily,   night   and   day,   thoy  make   the  trip   In   sixteen  days:    but so  unbroken  and  expeditious    a  run   is  in- j  frequent,  and judicious    travellers allow ,  threo   weeks    for    the journey.    As    for  froljfht  trains,   they   make  at  best  about  eight miles an hour.    But  they  do little  running   at   night,    and   are    necessarily .  subject   to  frequent  and  prolonged  stop- -  pasei,     bo     that     thoir     running     time i  is   seldom     less    than   fifty,     and   often ;  reaches  sixty,   days,   or   even   more.     In  view   of   such   a   schedule   lt   is   not   surprising that fa- through traffic the ocenn  route la still preferred.    Doubtless things  will   be  better some   day.

Continued.  appreciate this. Madame de Sevres  had issued invitations lor that day  to a few intimate friends���������a very few,  you urn .irstand, because the garden  was not large and Uie dining-room  very small. It would only accommodate eight at table; with nine one  was crowded, and, as wits remarked  by Athanase, who took a place and a  half by himself, where there is a  crowd there is no pleasure.  The dejeuner'was to be at ten.  At eight the omnibus stopped at  the grille; Madame was finishing a  cream and was not dressed; Palmyre,  in short petticoats, was scraping po-  ��������� tatoes and the Comte de Sevres,  ....-Without cravat or waistcoat, was energetically brushing a boot. in which  his arm was plunged up to thc elbow.  This was scarcely aristocratic, but  in, the absence of the cook, who had  keen sent to market and had not returned, .Mile;. Zenobie had too , much  to do to pay attention to all thc details.  Some one rang the garden bell.  "Go and open-the gate, Palmyre,"  cried Elodie. "Doubtless it is Irene."  And she   went   on   whipping    her  cream.     Polydore,   meanwhile, under  the veranda, continuing to brush witb  a flourish of thc a.m.  It" was'not Irene the cook.  The door, on opening, gave ingress  to the fashionable   Mme. Raymbaud,  an affected lady with a fluty    voice,  followed by two    loves    of children,  Richard and Isabella. Mr Raymbaud,  a grave,   self-contained   man "in- a  white cravat, black coat, and unvarnished pumps,  closed the procession.  Surprised in. her cruel undress, the  bony Palmyre screamed and took   to  flight, but   not so   quickly that   her  mother, irritated by the cook's delay,  'had not time enough to advance, her  dish of cream in her hand, crying in  a sharp voice:  "It is ridiculous    to  come so late and leave me to do all  the work.

"Why, no, dear Madame, on the  contrary, it is charming���������quite the  local color," simpered Mme Raymbaud, inwardly delighted at the  ���������crape in which she had caught her  excellent friend. It is I who ought to  excuse myself for arriving at such an  unseasonable hour; but the truth is,  I -was impatient to hear the nightingales flinging in your park," she added, looking with a mean air of hypocritical admiration at the three leafless plane trees, 'with trunks about  the size of a broomstick, which might  have been mistaken for the slottes-  poles on which laundresses support  their heavy lines. "It is a real- Bois  de Boulogne in miniature. Do you  know that in Paris people talk of nothing but the "' new park of, M. Le"  Comte de Sevres ��������� * *"  While this rattling discharge of  ironical compliments, was going on,  the unhappy count, his right arm  still entangled in his hoot and his  left trying to conceal the brush, was |  trying to back out of sight. This  bold manoeuvre would doubtless have  succeeded but for? an unlucky tub of  water into which the misguided servant had placed a pile of china plates  intending to restore them to their i  pristine brilliancy. I  A scraping on the ground, followed '  at once by a misstep, drew the attention of the visitors to the fugitive  just as he sat down, more than precipitately, in the tub, sending up jets  of water around him in all;directions, accompanied by the clatter of  broken china.  "Imbecile! that's the way you --al-  ways act!" cried Elodie, but this  time in a perfectly natural tone, and  _with_a_ges_ture_of_ despair which had  the unintentional effect of sprinkling"  her with all the cream of her beaten  eggs.  "Well, it was    not'my fault,   my  dear "woman," responded the husband,  who was vainly trying   to extricate!  cate himself from     the sitzbath   in'  which he was incrustcd.  By this time Mme. Raymbaud was  laughing until she cried, even' while  struggling to retain her gravity; her  husband meantime, - the ceremonious  M. Raymbaud, perceiving his,host for  the first time, was advancing towards him;" hat in hand, to inquire  after his health and present his humble.compliments.  "Thousand millions of "chiffons!"  (it was his favorite ; imprecation)  roared Athanase, "help me to get out  of this machine; these bits of plates  stick into you like neediest"  "Where are you wounded, my dear  sir?" -i-       '���������"  . "Where am I wounded? Well," you  may'fancy that it, is not in my face,"  angrily replied M. Le Comte, dragging himself out of his cellular prison.  Richard and?Isahclle were screaming with delight, clapping their hands  and trampling on the blue periwinkles. Under'these circumstances  . If. Raymbaud thought it his duty to  intervene and address some philosophical remarks to the children on the  fatal inconveniences of precipitation,  - and also on the impropriety of laughing at the accidents which happen to  ethers, since 'this is to expose our-  serves to raillery when the like occur  to us, and who knows, seeing tbe instability of fortune if ��������� ��������� ���������  He turned towards M. Le Comte,  Intending to &*....imon him as a witness to the t th of these remarks,  and stood It .st in amazement at no  longer seeing cither him or.Mme. Elodie.  To leave visitors alone, more espe  cially when Mine. Raymbaud was included in their -number, seemed to  him the utmost impoliteness, and hc  haughtily signified as much hy expressing his intention to withdraw.  But Mme. Raymbaud, conscious that  ��������� she had been at fault, calmed her  husband's wounded susceptibilities  and made hini comprehend that in  such circumstances it is quite proper  to leave everything in order to repair  as soon as possible the disorders of  one's dress.  A good intention is always rewarded. Hardly was thc plea of the charitable lady in favor of her dear friends  completed when the bell rang again  and three new arrivals invaded the  garden. We hasten to remark that of  these three two were retail wine dealers, and the third a hunting-dog uot  yet trained.  "Eh! good-morning, dear M. Auguste," exclaimed Mme. Raymbaud,  shaking hands, English fashion, with  the younger of the two brothers, a  charming young man, much sought  after in certain circles for his way of  singing little songs and making caricatures; "I did not know you ' were  to he with us."  "Cut we did not even know it ourselves; we came out for a stroll, a  good wind blew us this way, and my  faith, when we were passing the door  of that good fellow'Athanase, I said  to Sigismond: 'Let us go in: to seethe estate of M. Le Comte de Sevres,  and'ask him to give us some breakfast.* "  "Which idea," interrupted Sigismond, putting his thumbs in the arm-  holes of his vest, "having seemed to  mc both economical and succulent, we  entered like one man."  "We entered!" cried Mme. Raymbaud, with an adorable air. "There  is no one but M. Sigismond for using  such words. What do you think of it,  M. Raymbaud?"  "It is the first person plural of the  preterite definite," replied the learned man.  "Wilr you sing us something, M.  Augustc?"  "Madame, I lay at your feet my  repertory and my * * *" He ;laid his  hand on bis heart.  This gesture made Madame blush.  "Young ..man, young man, moderate  your expressions," said M. Raymbaud.  "I will sing you th* Sire de Fram-  hoisy'���������-it is the very latest style,"  cried Auguste, running bis hand  through his hair.* "Oh! oh! behold the  noble strangers who seem to be  coming towards this rural oasis."  "From what direction?"  "There���������look���������those who are coming off the steamboat."  "Philemon and Baucis, with the  meagre Astyanax pressing close upon  their tracks."  , "Whom    are    you baptizing    with  those burlesque names?"  "Madame, I decorate with them  those to whom they are due; the Co-  quenards and their offspring." '  "Dear me! the. tiresome people;  they would have done much better  not to come," smirked Mme. Raymbaud.  "Console yourself, Madame; they  are not alone; here come, .by the omnibus, Raymond, called Tancred, and  his sister, Madame Mitouflar."  "They are amusing,' at all events,  but the villa will never contain us  all; there is not room for more than  eight at table, and if I count correctly, three and four make seven, and  two nine, and three twelve, and two  fourteen. What is to become of us?"  "In war as warriors do. Is riot-  that so, M. Raymbaud? If the dining-  room is not large enough, we -will  camp outside, under the heavy shade  cf these four sticks which represent  the palms of the Orient. I will be the  very first to take possession of that  post."  '���������Take care! You are crushing that  poor geranium, and that is cruelty."  "No, Madame, I am putting an end  to the    sufferings    of   this poor and  sickly plant, and that is philogeranio-  my," ���������- ^-J-- -_  "Attention!" exclaimed Auguste.  "The enemy is mounting to" the assault; let us be amiable." And he ran  to ..meet Mme., Coquenard and ��������� offer  his' arm as if he had been requested  to do the honors of the villa. But the  old coquette abandoned him almost  at. once to embrace her very dear  Mine. Raymbaud bn both cheeks, and  to be, overwhelmed in return with  compliments and kindness. The melee  presently became general; there was  no more question of following walks  or paying attention to borders.  When Mme. Elodie, in white muslin  and currant-colored headdress, reappeared on the threshold of her villa,  with a smile complacently studied in  the mirror, the garden was sacked.  An invasion of barbarians would not  have been more-fatal. While the elders of the party were tramping down  periwinkles and verbenas, Richard,  Isahclle and Medor were executing the  most disastrous charges at the top  .of their speed over the square formed  by the potted plants supplied by the  gardener for the inauguration of the  terrestrial paradise. The square had  been broken into, and the ground was  ���������strewn with the debris of vases. Two  superb double pink carnations had  alone escaped disaster, and .now  bloomed In the" buttonholes of Auguste and Sigismond. Miserable  wretches who had not even been invited!  Ah! if only Athanase were at hand,  but Athanase was shaving himself. He  was certain to take his time about  it. Not so much, indeed, as the  cook, who had not yet put in an appearance. Mme. Polydore would willingly have barricaded herself in   her  ],-������������������...,   ���������������������������*     ,iV>.n<l   **���������       "-ith  ������n,,tl'!'* *""  what projectiles; but Mme. Coquenard  had taught night of her and was now  approaching, disguising���������or at least  she thought so ��������� the stiffness of her  right led by an ungraceful attempt at  a skip. She was obliged to put up  with the greeting of the old woman,  who presented her ninny of a son.  "Of course I knew you did not invite him, but that was because you  thought him at college; -.ve went  there for him this morning to give  you a surprise."  An agreeable surprise! thought Elodie, but she contented herself with  replying: "I fear we shall bc a little  crowded."  "Oh! there is always plenty of  room in the country," said Mme. Coquenard, with a silly laugh.  "And I, too, took the liberty oi  bringing Tancred," sighed Madame  Mitouflar. "My husband has an engagement this, morning, but hc will  take his revenge this evening and  come to ask you for some dinner."  "That is really very kind; but still,  I would not like M. Mitouflar to disturb himself for us."  "What a joke, my dearest! But  your hermitage is close to Paris, and  there,are so many facilities for coming that it makes a charming terminus for an outing; all your''friends  will be sure to avail themselves of  it and to pass the word to their acquaintances."  "That, madame, is what we have  done this morning already," interrupted M. Sigismond, advancing,  monocle in place and the wind blowing through his hair. "My brother  and I have stormed your gates, perfectly sure in advance of your gracious amnesty, and we beg of you a  little place at your friendly banquet."  "The truth is, sir, that the banquet will be rather, meagre."  "Oh! I am ready to wager that it  will be nothing of the sort," squeaked Mme. Coquenard. "We know your  way of making things, and then, at  such a distance from Paris, one has  only to put out? one's hand for whatever one chooses."  We have not even bread, thought  Elodie, who was ready to cry.  At last Athanase and Palmyre came  to the rescue.  Sorry auxiliaries!  In consequence of his morning's mishap M. Polydore limped a little, and  at sight of his ravaged garden his  face lengthened until it was almost  unrecognizable. On perceiving this  crowd trampling over his flowers he  thought at first of a riot or a fire;  but when he - beheld himself turned  topsy-turvy by his too numerous  friends he recognized that the! disaster was still - greater than he had believed.  Nevertheless, he 'had to submit to  the pleasantries of ' Auguste, who  punched him in the stomach and inquired about his accident,- and of  Sigismond, who' begged him to repeat  the performance for the benefit of tbe  ladies.  Again the bell rang.  "Encore!" vociferated Athanase, beside himself.  This exclamation was uttered with  such an unmistakable note of reality  that Tancred could not; help shouting:  "Perfect! perfect! what a splendid encore! This joker of an Athanase- was  born for tragedy; he cuts you out  altogether; Auguste, my good fellow;  you could not say like that: Saved,  my father, saved!"  "That is true; I never believed you  so much of an artist, M. Athanase;  you are' amazing in interjections,"  said Auguste, with a respectful inclination.     \  Athanasc had altogether too much  to do to listen;- he was anxiously  awaiting the appearance of the new  visitor.  "At-last!" he exclaimed, hcholding  Irene the cook, groaning under the  weight,of a-basket of provisions.  At this moment the "cordon bleu"*  was really a "cordon rouge;" sho  was blowing like j a: sea-calf hard  hard-pressed by an enemy, and her  ramplcxion vied in color with the  stuff fashionable for~a~bricf���������period  under the name of "Eruption of Vesuvius."  The unfortunate woman had not  made the proper connection with the  omnibus. As one knows, it is easier  to go by foot to the moon than by  transfer to Sevres on a fine Sunday  in May. At the omnibus office the  distributor of tir.-k'ets had given her  number 3,198..'Without, looking at it  she rushed towards the vehl 'e which  had just drawn up; the clock of the  Palais-Royal marked half-past nine  o'clock, and the breakfast was to he  at half-past ten. Not.a minute was  to. be lost. People "were hustling  each other round the omnibus, the object of all desires. She charged into  the crowd with her basket as a.Turco  does with a bayonet. This despairing  effort brought her close to thc step.  "Number !)8!" cried the conductor.  "Here is- 98,-" said Irene and a  butterwoman from the market ��������� a  powerful matron weighing..about' 300  pounds; five more than Irene.  "Hullo there! Only these two babies for: one place!" bawled a street  arab already perched on the top of  the omnibus.  "Tell us, then, you up yonder,"  shouted another voice, the possessor  of which, his cap on one side and his  hands in hisf pockets, was enjoying  the gratuitous spectacle of packing  the travellers in his deal box, "which  of the two is the. mother, and whicl  shail take the other on her lap?"  "98!" repeated the conductor,    returning her ticket to the cook. "You  will go when your turn comes, this  eveni g, mother."  "How? This evening? I have 98."  "You have 3,198. my good woman."  "Ho, ho!  a famous number for the  conscription," vociferated the urchin.  "If vou have that, vou are sure nut  to go."  "Cooks never go," echoed a voice  from the pavement. "They are till  supporters of families."  "liad boy!" said Irene, turiotts,  making a thrust at him.  "Blind your eggs!" retorted the  gamin.i kicking the sides of the. basket ana making off.  Without examining the interior damage done by this shock, the enraged  cook went on her way. It was not  until she had at last been able to  procure a cab that site undertook the  painful examination. It -.vas tliea too  late to retrace her steps.  "You arrive rather lute, my child,"  said Elodie sweetly, hut withering  her wilh a glance. "It is nearly quar-  ter past ten."  "Another time I will not cume  back at all," said Irene, intern iuiu.l-  ly .grazing Mme. Raymbaud's l-ea'iti-  ful dress with her basket hi-ron: altering her kitchen like a fur;..  ."Allow me, dear, to go and tne c.  glance at cur breakfast," smiled Elo-  liio.  "The glance of the master," remarked M. Raymliaud. "The good l,a  Fontaine," continued he, addrcssmj  himself to Raymliaud, called 'IVn-  cred, "wrote a fable on this subject  which our dear Richard recites wonderfully; it is his mother Mme. Raymbaud, who * * *"'  "Heavens!" minced the young fashionable, "what aits you that you loo!;  at me like that?"  "What ails ine, Mr.dame Rayr.iba'.-'1..  what ails mc? Bat look at volt*  self!"

"A dress which Tput on for thc lirs,t  time. Ah! don't-talk to me 'about  these partits in the country; ona always conies back irom them in such  states."  "With ben-zinc," said Mme. Coquenard, "you could���������"  "Eh! Madame, do* you suppose I  have any with me?"  "I do not say so dear Madame; but  in the house. * ��������� * V."hcre, pray is M.  Le Comte?"  "His sweet companion just now  called him to turn the spit or bread  the cutlets," remarked Sigismond.  "A husband ought to have some  talents," added Auguste, "especially  when he wishes: to live at a distance  from all - resources in a Happiness  Villa."  "Oh, sir, can you say so? I assure  you that M." Coqueanard would never  condescend to such, servile employments; I would not permit him," exclaimed Mme. Coquenard.!,"The feather dealer of the Ruo Saint-Andre-des-  Arts, 52 bis, the second above the  ground floor, those are.my relations  who���������"  - "Because M. Coquenard, knowing  how to be amiable, is dispensed from  being useful, dear madame," said  Mme. Mitouflar in a thick voice.  "While this poor rich Athanasc," resumed Sigismond, "only7knowing how  to be tiresome as a November rain,  is specially commissioned to black  boots, wipe dishes and turn' tho  spit."  "Hush, sir! You are cruel."  "I, Madame? Ncv.cr! Oh! cruelty is  not the perogative of our sex," Iigh-  ed the handsome Sigismond, casting at  the prim maker of artipcial flowers a  glance of soft reproach.  Meanwhile .a tempest had broken  out inside, whence Athanase emerged  like a whipped hound through a little  back door,' on his way to order, at  no matter what cookshop, the means  to improvise a breakfast for his too  numerous friends.  "Anything is good enough for people whom one has not invited," Elodie had excalimed; "beefsteaks of sole  leather, fried gudgeons, rabbit stew,  bread, plenty of bread, some save-  Joys,_and blue wine. W* are disgraced | but" tlicy~will-bc~p"oisonc'd." Cursed  be the villa!"  "But, dearest, it was you who���������"  "Run, monster run! This villa is a  contemptible treachery, an abominable tavern, in which you assemble the  whole rabble of.-your acquaintances; I  shall die of the shame of it, that is  certain. But then, it is my fault.  Oh! why-was it that in spite of myself���������"  Without waiting for the peroration,  Athanasc rushed, off,'in the direction  of a public house well known to boatmen and-wreckers under the name of  "The Stewed. Rabbit.'.'.-'���������   ���������  A fine painting, or rather a symbolic fresco, on which neither?Horace  Vernet nor Delacroix''had worked, decorated the exterior of?this modest  establishment.  Athanase had counted on reaching  there without being seen. He had  reckoned without his friend Gillibert  Pharamond, a long-haired painter '.��������� of  the Courbet school'and! a rising artist. ..  "By the pipe of my ancestors! whither are you hastening with furtive  steps, opulent chiffonier in wholesale  and retail?" cried the giant, rising  suddenly from the bench-on which,  stretched at full length, he was smoking his cutty-pipe in a picturesque undress.  "I���������I was going���������good-morning ��������� I  wn very happy���������"     .  "Would it be the brilliancy of my  l ed-stuft jacket or the broad flaps of  nay shady sombrero that have produced on your senses this effect of stunning paralysis?

"Whom do you  want to delude here, Polydore?"  "Mon Dieu! I am going to tell you  about it. I have some friends to  breakfast, and as our provisions ran  a little short���������"  "That's right; now you arc talking.  Come to my arms, Lucullus, my providence. I am one of your guests; I  invite myself and you make me promise. I was just putting myself this  question: IIow can 1 make a good  meal on ten centimes? Athanase, thou  art not merely a man, as Victor  Hugo says: thou art a solution. 1  was shadow, you are light; I was  hungry, you will satisfy me."  "It is only that we have a great  many."  "An    additional    reason,  my  dear;  you had numbers, I bring individuality.   Thc crowd is made for the genius; it is darkness, he is a torch;.but  for me, no one would have spoken of  your commonplace reunion;  I    come  there, and this evening everyone    in  Paris will be saying: Pharamond was  there! I shall associate you with my  fame. Has your repast been    ordered?"  "My wife drew up the menu."  "Let me have the handling of    it.  We will do the picturesque."  "Impossible for to-day."  ������'To-day? Then you come here sometimes?"  "Why���������I live here."  "You live here," cried Pharamond.  "and I'did not know* .it. So do I;   1  live here;    I came to study   nature;  for lack of something better I have  established myself here; but from tomorrow,  from this very evening,    I  .transport my Penates to your house,  and   like   the ivy to the   elm,   1 attach myself to your person. Gonlran,  my   friend. ...Gontrau, is camping   at.  Sevres; I will bring ���������him! to you���������your  villa will be the temple of the arts."  "Sapreisti, nothing was lacking hut  thatl" sighed   the  lucky proprietor,  while the artist was pounding, on the  table to summon the host, busy with  his kitchen ranges.  "Coming!" responded- a loud   voice  from within.  "No need; I prefer to enter," said  Athanase, who had already formed a  clever plan of escape.  "Then we will go in together," exclaimed Gillibert. "I am not the man  to forsake a friend," and he seized his  arm.  General stupefaction ensued when  the guests at the villa saw Athanase'  returning escorted by this species ot  giant with, flowing hair and beard  whbrano one knew.  "It must be one of Garibaldi's  drum-majors," - murmured Mme.  Raymbaud.  "Perhaps you might as well go aud  notify the police," said Mme. Mitouflar ?to! Auguste.  As for Palmyre, to whom her father had read the last number of The  Petit Journal, she rushed into the  house screaming in terror: "The pirates! the pirates'."  "Zenobie, hide away the silver and  get out the carving-knife,", said Elodie in'a curt and commanding tone;  sho always recovered her coolness in  .emergencies.  At last everything was explained.  Athanase presented his friend. Mme.  Polydore graciously vouchsafed him a  smile, but she beckoned to her husband.  "Come with me, Pharamond," said  the latter, trembling.  But the artist, already attracted by,  the graccs"of Mme.. Raymbaud, paid  no further attention to his luckless  friend. Polydore went into the house  alone.  "Sir," said his wife, "this evening  I shall return tovmy mother's   house  with my daughter, and to-morrow    1  jwilUay.my. complaint before the public prosecutor." " ~  "Don't be angry, my dear Elodie;  it was not my fault. The moment I  entered thc. St owed Rabbit���������"  "Leave me, sir! Leave me at once!"  said Elodie stamping her foot.   "Go  back to your friend the brigand!"  "But indeed���������"  "Go out, abominable creature, or I  will call for assistance. Ah! great  heavens! what is that? He is assassinating my daughter���������"  And ���������'she rushed into the garden,  where Palmyre was screaming at the  top of her lungs.  "There! ah! brigand! ah! wretch!"  Auguste and Sigismonde were shouting as they ran through the i trden  beds. Pharamond was frisking among  them, using his red jackcr as a toreador does his cape. ���������  "What is it? What has happened?"  cried the distracted mother.  "It is the dog which is running off  with thc green chicken," vociferated  Richard and Isabel le, delighted with  such a pretty trick.  "What? What.green chicken?"  "My poor paroquet!" sobbed Palmyre.  "Hurrah!" shouted Pharamond, who  Bad . just caught Medor in his red  jacket like a fish in a net, "the villain is in my power. Approach, young  girl���������Ihave delivered your interesting  bird from his teeth."  "An has he not torn him to pieces,  sir? Will he live?"  . "I have every reason to believe that  it will be difficult to heal him, my  dear young, lady, for a piece of him  islacking."  "A wing, perhaps?"  "No, mademoiselle, nothing but. thc  head,", said the artist, drawing    the  ���������*/    I 1,1. .

"I  propose that we give him civil  bur-  ,i '*  This funeral pleasantry was not-uP  together a success. Al. Le Comte  would not hear of ius daughter's grief  heing turned into ridicule. I-kuce  there resulted a slight coolness among the guests, singularly augmented  by the demands oi the stomach. It  was noon, and no sign of the dejeuner promised for half-past ten.  "lt is an invitation to fast instead  of to break-fast," said Mme. Raymbaud to Sigismond in au undertone.  "So I think," h������. replied.  Irene, Athanase and the blonde Zenobie were going back and forth  irom thc dining-room to the little  gate where they expected the cutlets  and fried gudgeons. With a cuurage  beyond her sex, Elodie was try-ins to  keep up a conversation that more  than languished. Palmye was in her  room weeping over the paroquet,  wiiose head Medor was meanwhile digesting. The group assembled in Happiness Villa looked about as cheerful  as the guests invited to a funeral.  At last the dejeuner arrived. But  although appetite may be justly called the best reasoning for a feast, the  culinary products of the Stewed Rabbit inn were so execrable that there  ensued a general consternation. Pharamond alone, thanks to thc strength  of his Merovingian jaws, succeeded in  triumphing over the beefsteak, which  took the edge off the knives. As to  the gudgeons, forgo tt civ in the frying-  pan, ihey were It'insfcrred i:i'-o carbon fossils. The .tiiist cat iff the  tail .of'one wilh bis knife a'.id wsed it  .is a pciii il in iskuuiv.i.j on u.e tablecloth the charge of the amphitryen.  This jest in doubtful taste did not  succeed in smoothing out the (rowit-  in-r foreheads of the guests, its author .was not surprised, such people  were n;it on a sufficiently high level  to comprehend him.  The rd ishes prepared beforehand,  and on which Elodie chiefly relied to  sustain her reputation as a housekeeper, were far too microscopic for  fifteen guests instead of seven; there  was just enough to whet the appetite  and occasion regret. ? It? was Mme.  Raymbaud who made this piquant remark.  On the other hand, there were- plenty of potatoes. \  "There is more smoke than butter  7 in them," said to his charming neighbor the handsome Sigismond, who  fancied that he had wit enough to  pay his scot. Mme. Raymbaud had  fallen furiously on the spinach, and  did not discover until afterwards  that it was sorrel. That annoyed,- almost irritated her, for she pretended  to detest it.  In a word, everybody except' Pharamond was horribly dissatisfied, and  even to the intruders there was not  one who did not think he had a right  to compalin and to sneer. Mme.  Polydore surprised more than one  malevolent smile upon tlieir lips.  Alas!- she could not disguise Trom  herself that for an invited repast thc  breakfast was ridiculous. I-lcr self-  love was in tortures. Poor Athanasc  stealthily regarded her with alarm;  he was awaiting with terror the second act, and would gladly have detained his guests until evening.  But, with the exception oi Pharamond,' all were in haste to get away  as soon as possible from Happiness  Villa and to laugh at their case over  the receptions of M. Le Comte de  Sevres and what the charming Auguste described as thc servitors of lime.  La Comtesse dc la Chifionerie.  By three o'clock in the afternoon  there was no one in the villa but the  owners, since Pharamond had gone to  look for Gontran. Madame was packing her trunks and Athanase striding up and down in his devastated  park. He was trying to work himself into a rage by a sight of the  ruined place, in order to gain courage  to support the coming storm.  Just as he was beginning to con-  sid*ir_hiii:sclf_well_panup_Iied,_ he heard  thc voice of Elodie  lfTnf  bent  ainmoning  from the window, and his legs  beneath him.  "What do you wish?" said he.  '"Fetch me up the cover    of    that  paeking-casc .and  some    paste," answered she, in a tor.e of unalterable  decisicn.  And then he ���������recr.Ved the threat she  had made in the morning of a local  separation. He w.-nt upstairs trembling.        "..'.   ..-'������������������'  "Paste this on that board and r.o  antl fasten il on the gate," said his  wife, handing liim' a sheet of paper,  on which were written in large letters these three words:  "Do you wish to leave the villa?"  asked he, astounded.  "I shall leave it on the instant,  sir!" replied Elodie, with firmness  "It is for you to say whether you  will keep it because it belongs to  you; but I warn you that after what  has just occurred it is impossible for  me to comply any longer With your  tyrannical caprices by living in the  country, which I detest, or by burying myself in a desert denuded of all  resources and frequented solely by  the vagabonds who are the acconv-  plices of your vices. You say that  you cannot dispense with a country-  seat and���������"  "But, on the contrary, my dear  Elodie, it is I who am sacrificing myself for���������"  "Hold your tongue, sir, and allow  your victim for once, at least, to  make her sad voice heard. It is time  tliat this insupportable tyrarny  should cease. I declare toyou that I  am determined to emerge from this  prison which you have the infamous  irony  to call the Villa of Happiness,   i  I  and where you have to-day plunged so  deep into the fathomless ocean of  ridicule that your daughter an:l I  have been splashed with the ineffable  mud of your fall, Reply, sir, reply!"  "If your decision is ircrevocably  taken, dear Elodie, to return to you]  parents, I will not oppose it."  "Not I alone, but Palmyre, do you  understand? Palmyre whom you call  by the sweet name of daughter and  whom you will never see again."  "Palmyre may go too;" replied  Polydore, suddenly bracing up.  "Then you have completely decided  to separate yourself from two beings  who���������"  "Who wish to leave mc? Why, yes,  since it is for their happiness."  "And you will make them a considerable allowance?"  "I    will    return    your dowry,  ma-  [ dame, and I am ready to assure   my  daughter an income   of   twelve hundred francs."  "Twelve hundred francs! But I owo  more,  than that to  my  dressmaker."  "You will have your dowry."  "My. dowry, Athanase," -answered  Mme. Elodie, bursting into tears,  "you thought considerable when you  came in nankeen pantaloons and a  blue frock-coat to ask my mother for  my hand. I was young and I was  beautiful at that time, and you rated  my innocence and ray beauty above  money. Times have changed very  much, Polydore!"  Like many others, the sensible Elodie thought that fortune was ,not  destitute of charms, and the idea of  renouncing not only opulence but ease  to-live in privation in a family where  affectation found no 'admirers always  inspired her with salutary reflections.  Athanase, on his part, sincerely'  loved his wife and daughter with, or  rather in spite of, all their faults.  Thanks to mutual concessions, peace  was restored. Happiness Villa alone  was sacrificed. Elodie showed herself  intractable on one point only. She  insisted that her husband should, admit that he, and he alone, had r the  idea of coming to live in that unlucky  habitation. He consented with joy  on condition of, leaving it at once.  This, moreover, was the condition  "sine qua non" insisted on by Irene  and Zenobie, who could not: 'endun  the country. As to Palmyre, she was  promised another paroquet and a  glass globe for her goldfishes.  The treaty of peace being concluded,  they began getting ready to move  Irene went in advance, to prepan*  dinner that very evening in Paris.  At half-past six in the evening thr  whole  family   .joyfully  quitted    that  house, within reach     of   everything,  which they had entered a week before,  in triumph.  Three persons only experienced real  annoyance from this hasty break-up.  M. Mitouflar, Pharamond and Gontran, who, instead of thc dinner they  hoped ' for, encountered at the ex-  Happiness Villa nothing but the sigr.  announcing that it was to-let.  "Another happiness eciinscd!" exclaimed Pharamond. "I did well tt.  take my part of it in ad\ance. Lei  us look somewhere else."  At that very hour Elodie, sinkim*  down on her side of the fire, was exclaiming:  "Oh! how well off one is here*  Frankly, Loulou, this apartment b  charming. All it lacks is a fine mirror."  "And my paroquet," said Palmyre  "You shall have all that to-morrow," cried Athanase.  "And at last we have found happi  ness, my big darling," replied Mme.  Polydore.  ���������Colloquial French for a profession  al female cook. The "cordon bleu" i-  the blue ribbon of the Order, of ith.

Doubtless ninny will celebrate to  such nn extent that it modern St.  Patrick will be necessary to ".Sthand  aft' the Siirpints".  There is no country so widely known  as Ireland.

Surely an ideal reputation. The characteristic which supplies them with  that famous humor is-inate and comes  unconsciously. They see the bright  side of everything and things are never  so dismal but they can somewhere  produce a. smile. And while Pat is  partaking of the good cheer of fellowship and when his thoughts are on the  home land he will perhaps absently  liuni to the old familiar strain, "Are  you thinkingof me asthore."  To thc Irish maid all others of her  fair sisters must yield the palm of  victory for all those qualities which  win our hearts. No young man could  have a higher aim or be more proud  that he who could truthfully sing:  '���������Oh my love Xell, was an Irish gal,  From the County Down came she."

R. at Donald, flows awny  to the north west for about a hundred  mile.-j and then with a big sweep turns  and flows south east being again  crossed by the C. P. R. at Revelstoke.  and from tliere flowing on south emptying into the Arrow lakes. AYithin  this inverted 'vi'' of tho Columbia lies  the particular section of Revelstoke  known as the Big Bend.  AVithout any- exaggeration it is safe  to say the above district will prove to  hold one of the richest mineral deposits  of gold, silver and copper to be found  anywhere. The discoveries already-  made and which are being made all  the time are practically" unrivalled in  extent and richness.  The history of the Big Bend dates  back to '65 when the gold rush began  and a typical mining town sprang up  in the vicinity- of Camp, AlcCullough  and French, creeks, all tributary to  Goldstream river. Considerable free  fiold was panned out of these  creeks and although the surface showing was hardly cleaned and the very  extensive ci*eeK~"Ulds Ieft~en-  untouched, tbe fever abated  and the mushroom like growth of this  town at French creek with its quota  of saloons, gambling dens, dancing  hall.", billiard rooms, etc., etc., like  other towns in the wake of a gold  discovery in a new section, soon was  abandoned, the wild reckless spirits  seeking new excitement in fresh pastures and the more staid work of  developing and opening up,the properties was left to organized companies  with good working capital.  After the flrst rush of *G5-*G0" the Big  Bend lay idle till '85. At that time a  gieat number of locations were taken  up and held by a system of transfer  and sale from one miner to another  hut little practical work was done  ���������until '02. From this year until now  companies have been forming and  liave lieen opening up and operating  cliiims throughout the whole district.  At present there are four placer  claims with local and American capital, being operated on Smith, Camp,  JfcC'ullough and French creeks. Each  of these properties is being put into  first class shape with all the newest  and most modern appliances for hydraulic mining and it is expected that  ���������work this summer will show big  results.  South of these properties on the  above mentioned creeks, are a number  pf quartz mines-     .Most important of  On Friday hist the whole Pacific  coast vvas swept by one of the worst  storms in 13 years. At Sacramento  the wind reached a velocity of 01 miles  per hour. Reports from San Diego to  Vancouver are coming in of the great  damage done to coast towns and shipping. Telegraph lines were nen rly all  affected and a complete irnin wa.s over  turned til "Alameda.

"While such action on the purt  of ordinary law abidinu citizens is  certainly" lo lie deprecated yet when  one is not. in the midst of such things  and in touch with the acttral feeling  against the culprit it is perhaps unwise to spunk too harshly.  Lynch law is contrary to all equity  and justice, yet when, as is generally  the case where lynch law holds sway,  a negroe is generally caught red  handed in airy crime why there is a  measure of reason for the same.  When we are not interested it seems  most awful���������yet should a sister,  daughter or wife be the victim of a  negro's brutal assault our feelings we  hazard would he vastly different.  H.

Below we publish the result of a  largely attended meeting in Camborne  on the 27th. The residents of Camborne district have decided that tlrey  want a daily mail service and from  the strenuous and persistent way in  which they are going ahout tlio business there seems no question but  what they will obtain what they are  after.  They have made repeated requests  through the Hehald for the assistance of Revelstoke and we have duly  mentioned the same from time lo  time. Kevelstoke has not beerr back-  waul, in the pust in rendering such  services as were consistent to any  locality within reach and we can  assure the Camborne people that, now  as then, Revelstoke will give all  possible aid.  As Camborne district is plainly tributary in all ways to our city antl as  they are anxious tlieir trade should  come to us It is certain that whatever  Revelstoke can do they will he amply  rewarded for the same, in the increase  of trade: ������  At a largely atl ended public meeting  held in Camborne on Saturday, Fee-  rnary 27th, 1901, to devUe ways and  means for procuring a more satisfactory mail service throughout the Lardeau district, the following resolutions  were unanimously endorsed:���������  1. That as the growth of the district  has  rendered   the   present tri-weekly  ' service wholly inadequate, the post  office department he, and is herehy  petitioned "to provide us with a daily  service.  2. ��������� That the co-operation of the  neighboring towns of Ferguson, Trout  Tifcike, Benton and Comaplix be vo-  quested in the effort to obtain the  above.reform.  .   3.   That, tlie Revelstoke and Nelson  Boarks of Trade and Liberal Association lie asked to use tlieir influence on  our behalf.  G. R. rfouTUEY,       T. R. Davey,  "   Secretary. Chairman.  Camborne, B. C,  ��������� ���������    Alarch 1st, 1901.  XV. A. Gaixiiter, M.P.,  Nelson, B. C.        >    .  Sir,���������At a" hugely attended public  "meeting held iu Camboorne' on the  27th ult.. resolutions were passed that  ' you be approached on our behalf to  secure the daily mail service petitioned  "for last yeai, and which was shelved  .without an explanation from you;.-the  reasons for the desired change were  set ont at.length in tlie petition which  we desire you to re-consider.        i  The population, commercial import  ance, and post ollice business iu the,  district have more than doubled with-  ��������� in the past year ,aud the daily mail  service is much more necessary now  than at that time.  No great expense will be entailed by  the increased service, as a daily boat  and stage is run in connection with all  points asking for the change.  With the- present system, nearly a  ���������week elapses ere a reply can bo received from outside ��������� points, even  though the distance be a matter of 40  miles or less, and business men and  corporations are therefore working at  n, great disadvantage, whicli could, by  your assistance be easily remedied;  we the residents of Camborne therefore approach you, believing you will  see tho justice of our request and will  do all in your power to procure the  desired service.  plant which at present is not in first  class conditijn.��������� Considerable discussion took place on the individual repairs needed.  Moved by Aid. McCarter, seconded  by Aid. Abrahamson tbat this matter  be referred to F. XV. & L. Committee  with full power to take action foi*  necessary repairs to dam, Iliinie and  machinery. Also that such immediate  temporary repairs necessary while  material for permanent improvement  is being obtained, be put in. All this  work to be done under the supervision  of Mr. Roberts���������Carried.  Under the head of unfinished business the request of Mv. Tapping re  building a verandah over Kootepay  Mail building which was laid over  from last meeting was' taken up.���������  Permission practically granted and  Mayor authorized to wait upon Mr.  Tapping and explain matters. Although it was contrary to the by-law  that such buildings'_(.vith sloping roofs  to side walk be erected, yet when already up it was the opinion of most of  the council that what structures were  necessary for the public safety should  be built at once.  Aid. McCai tar suggested that in consequence of recent hold up and the  influx of men from camps, another  night patrolman should bj put on. At  present with only one policeman on  patrol a man with evil intent could  locate the officer at one end of town  aud do his nefarious work in the other.  Mayor stated Police Commissioners  had suggested that an additional man  be put on April 1st.  Aid. Abrahamson remarked that  more street lights should be put in  where tho recent hold up occurred as  it was very dark in that vicinity.  Moved Aid. McCarter, seconded Aid.  Lewis, Unit City Clerk be instructed  to advertise for night patrolman, requiring applicants to give references,  applications to be in before 21st, also  that Police Commissioners be instructed to employ the most capable man.

"See, you have  spoiled my pretty Undine," she cried,  pointing to the hcaith-iug from  which the water trickled in little,  liny  ril's.  It was too true; the rod wool had  dyed the whito hand of the fairy  maid, which lay lightly upon her  bodice, a   deep orimson. .       '  Loraino shuddered; the whito hand  seemed as if it were slasping a b o-  ken, bleeding heart, and the glowing  fire-light, leaping playfully in the  grate, throw strange shadows over it.  "Take lhe rug away," said Loraine,  nervously, covering her face with 1:?t  hands.

Loraino, playfully placed her white  fingers above the red,'quivering lips,  holding up a jaunty, amber silk, with  here and there a dash of tho richest,  softest rtnd darkest crimson.  i'.--"I knew how superbly this costume  !������vould set off tbat piquant, foreign  face.

Concerning one of Phil May's old models, tihe Sydney "Bulletin" has the following: Brophy was his name, an ex-

a superb-line of Itossetti's red-chalk

I particularly remember. The hero of
one of them was an eminent commercial
solicitor, who, after ineipecting some newly-acquired treasure contemptuously for
half a minute, turned on his heel wibh
the .comment that "faces of that kind
were usually symptomatic of scrofula!"
Thc other offender, a gormandizing clergyman, was even more flagrant. Uplifting his eyes from his empty plate during a change of courses, he happened to
catch sight for the first time of three
new purchases from Ro'wtti's studio.
"Queer-looking affairs those, Valpy," he
remarked with-a pitying sneer; "where

Keeling and Uart who had  gone thoroughly over all the lands in  question, were examined for tlie purpose of coming at the extent and  quality of the timber.  Air. Ludgate of the Big Bend Lumber Co. and Air. Dudgeon of Harbor  Lumber Co. were examined to estimate  if possible the value of such timber  according to its quality and location.
