"They were n rough Bet licro lit Litlle nil tho for boiug nil inon; most of the other camps full of linlf breccia and Indians. Tho island htd been a (dation awfly back in tho early days of tho HmlKon Day it was a sto- liou for thn Nortlm-ost Company while Ihtt lasted; then it buck to tho HudsOD, nml stayed there until the company movud its forces farther to tho north. It was net at any time n regular post; n camp for tho hunlcrii. Tho post was farther down tho lake. Oh, but those wero wild days! You think you know tho wilderness, itiiS "o know nothing, absolutely nothing. It if iLo very "inte mo laugh lo see the airs of you city gentlemen, with your fine guns, improved fishing tackle, elaborate paraphernalia, as though you wero going to wed the wholo forest, floating up and down the lake for a month or two in Summer You should haye seen tho hunters of Littlo Fishing going out gnyly when Iho mercury wrs down twenty degrees below zero, for a week in the woods- You should have scon the trappers wading through the hard snow, breast high, in the gray visiting the traps and hauling homo the prey. There were all kind of men French, English and American; all high r.nd the low, tho educated and tho ignorant; all lazy and the hard working. Ono thing only they all had in badness. Home had fled to the n-ildernena to escape tho law; others to escape order; some had chosen the wild life because of its ivilducss, others had drifted into it from sheer lethargy. This far-northern border did not attract tho plodding emigrant, the respectable settler. Little Fishing held none of that trash; only a reckless set of fellows who carried their lives in their hands, and tossed them up, if need be, without a second thought." "And other people's lives without a I suggested. "Yes; if they deserved it. But nobody whined; there wasn't any nonsense here. The men went hunting and trapping, got the furs ready for tho bateaux, ato when they wore hungry, drank when they wero thirsty, slept when they wero sleepy, played cards when they felt like it and got angry and knocked each other down whenever they chose. As I said before, there wasn't any nonsense at Littlo Fishing, she came." "Ah! tho "Yes, tho Lady, as wo called her. Thirty-ouo years ago; how long it "And well it said. "WLy, com- rade, I wasn't born Tho stupendous fact seemed to strike me more than my companion; ho went on with his story as though I had not Epolten. "One October evening, four of tho boys had got into a row over tho cards; tho rest of us had come out of our wigwams to ECO tho fun, and were sitting around on the stumps, chaffing them and laughing; tho camp-firo was burning in front, lighting up the woods with a red glow for a short dis- tance, aud making the rest doubly black all around. There wo all wero, as I said be- fore, quite cany and comfortable, when sud- denly there appeared among us, as though she had dropped from heaven, a woman! She was tall and slender, tho firelight shone full on her pale face and dove colored dress, her golden hair was folded back un- der a little white cap, and a white kerchief lay over her shovlders; she looked spotless. I stared; t could scarcely believe my eyes; none of us could. There was not a white woman west of the Siuilt Sle. Marie. Tho four fellows at tho table sat as if transfixed; one hud his partner by the throat, the other two were disputing over a point in the game. Iho lily lady glided up to their table, gath- ered tho cards in her white hands, slowly, steadily, without pause or trepidation before thoir astonished eyes, nnd then, coming back, she threw Ihe cards into the centre Jof the glowing fire. 'Ye shall not play away your she said in a clear, sweet voice. 'Is not tho game sin And its reward death Ami then immediately, sho gave us a sermon, tho like of which was never heard before, no Argument, no doctrino, just simple, pure entreaty. 'For tho love of she ended, stretching out her hands towards our silent, group, 'for the love of God, my brothers, try to do bettor. did try; but it was not for the love of God. Neither did any of us fqel like broth- ers. _ Sho did not give any name; wo called her simply our Lady, and she accepted tho title. A bundle carefully packed lu birch bark was found on tho beach. "Is this yours asked Black Andy. 'It is' replied Iho lady, aud remorinR his hat, the black haired giant carried the pack- ago reverently inside her lodge. For wo had given her our best wigwam, and fenced it off with pine .saplings so Hint it looked like a miniature fortress. The Lady did not suggest this stockade; it was our own idea, and with one accord wo worked ht it like beavers, and bung up a gato with ponder- ous inside." (Atlantic Monthly for September.

But it would bo a cowardly falsehood to pretend that wo think their army a defensive militin; that thoir navy is sure to fight on tho side of moral right in tho next naval conflict; Hint the splendid and highly creditable triumphs they liavo achieved havo not in- spired them with military inntincts and lun- bitions with difficulty to bo distinguished from thOHO wo formerly lined lo noto and reprehend in Franco; that thoy have not grown covetous of influence abroad, nnd anxious, lo use n colloquial phrase, to play first iiddlo in Europe; that Ihoy have nol sacrificed tho most precious constitutional liberties to the sovereign and tho stalcniuan who havo led thorn lo glorious ballloand lo valuable or, finally, that it is to Ihem wo iiminly look for tho preservation of tranquillity and tho rights and welfare of mankind.
