The ex. President, then a member of

She sits in the sunlight, and as tho

She shared his prosperity and bis ad

looks back now, far, far down into the
dark cave of time, and the teet no
gloomy shadow cast by her upon tho

Sho cannot recall one unkind word she
uttered, or romombor a frown that she

think of this, and to know that what
ever sorrow came to tho husband's
heart none ever came through her.
Tho children, too, have dropped away
from her tido; only a fuw remain to
comfort and to cheer her. Death, the
reaper, bas mowed down some of tho
brightest blossoms in hor living wreath,
and tho young, tho strong, and the bravo

Well, this was God's will, and it must

Sho utters no complaint, the old

TUK FIASCO OF CYPRUS.
LORD llEACONSrir.LD'S SPLENDID BVJBBLS
Pl'NCTl'RED BY MB. AIICII1BAI.D
In tho current October number of
tho Nineteenth Century the article that
will be most generally read, quoted,
and commented upon is tho paper by
Archibald Forbes upon the British oc
cupation of Cyprus. Mr. Forbes, as the
representative of his paper, tho Daily
Keict, accompanied tbo corps of occu
pation sont out from l'.nulat.d to Cy
prusundercommandoi'Sir Gnrnot Wol
seley. Ha remained on Iho island
long enough to explore it thorough
ly, and to pass through a severe
experience of the fever that is an
integral part of its gonial climato; long
enough to perceiva thu very serious
disadvantages under which labored tho
tint' irtunalu Governor ot this now quasi
dependency of Great Britain. Tho ru
Hii It of his observations was duly com
mimicuted to bit paper in a aeries of
letters, and the gist ot theso letlers Is
now presented in trunchunt terms un
der thu caption," l'ho Fiasco of Cyprus."
His subject is divided into three inter
r. gativu heods : I. Under what con
ditions aro wo there ? II. With what
objects aro we there? 111. To what
extent does our being there fulfill those
objects? Tho first bead IS disposed of
glibly: "1 discovered to my disgust,
writes Mr. Forbes, "that, so far from
being tho proud owners of a now ac
quisition, we uro mere tenants at will;
und, to mako matters worse, aro ex
pressly burred from claiming on evic
tion compensation for improvements.
Or, rather, our position is thut ot a
tiroker's mun in possession under a fic
titious judgment, liable ut any timo to
bo kicked out without receiving tbo
hall-crown a day of aliment mon
ey." Tho answer to the second in
quiry is thus summarized : "Tho avow
ed objocts, then, of our occupation o!'
Cyprus, setting asido its blessing as a
greut civilizing instrument, are first in
order to enublo England to nmko no
ecssary provision tor executing her en
gagement with Turkey to join her in
delensive warfare against Russia in
ease ot aggression by that power on
Asia Minor; and, secondly, an element '
of protection against Russian advances
in tho direction ot our Indian empire,
or Russian machination.) against tho
saluty thereof and of our communica
tions therewith." Tho answer that
Mr. Forbes gives to tho third head of
inquiry, "To what extent does our oc
cupation of Cyprus fulfill these objects?"
may bo condensed into tbo pointed
sentence : The occupation ol Cyprus
does not fulfill tbese object, to any ex
tent at nil ; on the contrary it does
nothing to Inrlher any ono ot thorn thut
might not hnvo been belter done in
sotno ol hor way. The one sidednoss of
Anglo Turkish Convention binding
England to aid Turkey In repelling
Russian aggression, but placing Turkey
nndcrthe reciprocal obligation to retrain
frnm a Russian alliance nor to assist
England should Russia make further ad
vances in Conlrul Asia is dwelt upon
in a manner that must make ilscll lull
even through tho thick skin of a Con
servative Ministry. Not lest tharply
is assailed the absurdity, geographical
ly, of the position taken with tho avow
ed object of thwarting a Russian ad
vance, cast of the Caspian, upon India
and in this connection with Lord
Northbrook's gravo witticism is quot
ed : "To undertake hostilities in ibo
right rear of tbo enemy is not precise
ly the way to delond acouulry." Mr.
Forbes puts tho caso oven more
strongly when ho says that 'tho House
Minister (Mr. Cross) "appcurs to havo
been acquuintcd w ith and learned strut
ruio lessons from tbo ingenious itidivi
dual who flanked the whole bubitable
globe by tho simple expedient of going
up in balloon, financially, oi course,
thero is nothing to be taid in tnvor ol
Cyprus n country utterly dostiluto of
available resources, it is a bad invest
inent, and there is no good reason for
believinir thut it w ill improve-. The
only money that can accrue to Eng
land is from tho increaso in revenue
resulting from a better administration
and this surplus docs not go to the
nation, but is pledged to tho individual
Enirlisbmen who aro holders ot Turk
ish bonds. As to tho deadly climate,
enough is known to render any quota
tions on that bead superfluous. In a
word : Bricks are not to bo made with
out straw in Cyprus any mora than in
Egypt." While assenting to all that
Mr. Forbes has to urge against tho
blunder, not to say crimo, committed
by tho present Ministiy in uttering the
Cyprus scheme, it is probable that
sober-minded lolk will think twice be
fore nssenting onco to tho gratuitous
advance that ho throws in by way ol
climax. Il it a characteristic bit of
bluster, howover, and probably ropro
senlt tho foiling entorlaincd by a
very largo number of truo Britons,
safety, then, cqnully from danger, real
or fancied, in our front, and Irom pos
siblo chaos in our rear, lies in tbo mili
tary occupation of Afghanistan. It is
from t'oliul and Herat that tho words,
'Thus fur ami no further !" will resound

turers and instructors, were confirmed
before a name wont into print, und we
send it out as a truo exponent of the
arrangements made lor tbo coming in

Your attention is called to a portion
of tho school law which allows you to
provide necessary books lor indigent
children in your district. Ubsorva
lions made during visitulions to schools
in the Inst thrco weeks, salisty me that
many children are out ol school bo
cuuse their parents are not able to pro-
vide the necessary books. Tho spirit
ul tho law regulating llieptiniic scdooi
system, is that nil may rccoivo a com
mon school education. Our schools
aro designed moio for the comfort of
tho poor rather than tho pleasure of
tho rich, and not a solitary child should
bo ncgloctod. After monoy has been
raised to build and lurnish bouses and

tew additional dollars aro needed to
provide for tho needy children, and
thus accomplish what tho statue sup
