and research goea on ln the supernatural a. well as ln the natural, though
there la probably no dividing line between tbe two.
Tbe Alps are my favorite mountains,
though 1 do uot consider thetu superior to the Canadian Ruckles. But
the former are ln the center of a civ*
lllzed continent while the latter are
still solitary and not so easily reached.
Mountain climbing bas always been a
passion with me, and ln the Alps une
finds every facility for the purpose.
Before 1 was twenty I bad stood un
the summit of the Jiingtrnu and a
year later made the ascent of ti**> Mat*
terhorn. ���
My favorite Alpine region was thai
about Mont Blanc, which 1 (limbed
aeveral timet and always with tbe
same guide. Otto Man. tbougb ascents
are not usually made without twc
guides. Marx, tbougb possessing the
wiry, close knit build of the typical
mountain guide, had a spiritual conn*
trainee. Be climbed mountains nut
ao much from a lore uf encountering
their dangers at for the contemplation of tbe splendid scenes to be found
among them. Be waa a silent man,
not easily drawn out, but It It my

ijbody. 1 can only propel myself .on
liny legs, helping myself up steep
���heights.' at timet helping witA my
���bands. When 1 die I shall he' free
(from such contemptible ' methods.
iThougb.we sometimes retrograde, In
ihe main, we progress. Man first could
only walk on bis legs; tben he made
an animal carry bim, and nuw he goes
rapidly by steam. When he diet be
makes a much greater advance tban
from tbe flesh to the Iron horse. Once

mechanism by wbicb I shall move
any more than balf a century agu one
could conceive of talking tu unotber
hundreds of miles away byineans of
a telephone ur of flying among tbe
clouds In an aeroplane. Do, yuu' suppose man can make such .progress as
tbis, clogged with the body, to ac
complish nothing ac all wben freed
from It?"
Sitting there, looking out upon the
terrestrial grandeur, I wns deeply Impressed with his reasoning. I did not
stop tu Inquire whether ur not It wns
logical, nnd It does nut appear to uie
now tu matter whether It was logical
or whether it violated every logical
principle. There nre deductions that
only appear to its through the feelings,
and this feeling tbnt we shnll live
again after our present life is perbaps
the must important of all such deductions.    *
Many were Ihe talks In thla vein I
bad wltb Otto Marx while we were
resting above the clouds. When we
had descended Into the valley he would
be again shut ud like an oyster. Sometimes when we were alone together ln
Cbamounlx I world endeavor to get
him to converse on these subjects, but
never once succeeded. Sometimes I
fancied that be saw these sights of
what be would be ln tbe future only
from a great belgbt and when Inspired
by tbe peaks. And yet this did aot destroy his faith In them.        !������������     .
Tbe last climb,Otto nnd I made together, we started one morning from
Chamounii to ascend tbe mountain,
and stopped for the night at the (Srabd
Mulcts,.the cabin erected for the shei-
ter'o'f climbers. We bod our supper
before dark and sat looking out over
tbe succession of mountains and gorget
and the great Ice river pouring wtth
Invisible slowness down Into the valley. I tried to Indnce Marx to talk,
bat failed.

Plans For Peace Centenary.
The Canadian Peace Centenary is
now in* a position to prosecute wlt.h
vigor the program recommended to it.
b/ its delegates to the recent International Conference at New York for the
discussion of methods of celebrating
the hundred years of peace lie.twppn
the peoples ot the British Empire and
the United States. These recommendations chiefly bave relation to two
important aspects oi the commemoration, the erection of visible tiiond**'
incuts and the establishment of educational influences looking to all ln-
crensc in international gool-will. With
regard to the former, the geiiprnl feeling favored numerous monuments of
identical design, on both sides of tha
frontier, in preference to a few very
large monuments. It was held that
tho object wns to set up emblems of
good will in as mnny centres of population as possible. The ediicntionat
efforts to bo nimed at includj tbe
establishment nf lectureships nn Anglo-American history, based nn ths
principle nf interchange nf professors;
the endowment of traveling scholarships to enable journalists and writers
to ..sit various Knclish-sneakinc countries, the awarding of pmes in
schools, colleges and universities for
essays on the hundred years nf peae?;
the preparation ,of a history on the
century of peace, irom which text
books and school books in tha .seveial
countries may be prepared or rcvi-ed,
and an annual peace day celebration
in the schools.

Qusbso Gives the  Liberal Premier
th. Third T.rm In Office
Montreal.���The Quebec Provincial
elections resulted ln tbe return of the
Oouln Government by practically the
same majority which It had ln the
last house.
By the redistribution act, passed at
the last session of the legislature, seven new seats were added, and while
the opposition captured two of these
It lost two others, thus making the
gross gain in the Liberal majority ln
the new house seven.
The members of the cabinet were
rejected, the only one to suiter defeat
being the Hon. Charles Devlin in Te-
miskamlngue. Mr. Devlin was, however, successful in Nicolet county.
Premier Gouin was elected by a
large majority ln both Port Neuf and
St. John's.
Mr. Tellier, opposition leader, was
reelected In Join ite, but two of his
leading lieutenant I, Armand Lavergne
and Jules Provos-, both of whom ran
ln two counties, suffered defeat ln one,
Mr. Lavergne winning ln Montmagny
and losing ln Montmorency, and Mr.
Prevost suffering defeat ln L'Assomp-

amounting to apathy In the English
districts of Montreal,
The Government appealed to the
people on Its good record, while the
opposition charged It with extravagance, citing the erection of a $3,000,-
000 gaol and (600,000 technical school
In Montreal as examples, and contended that the money could have
been better spent ln advancing the
Interests of primary education ln the
rural districts of the province.
Good roads also figured, the Government relying upon Its programme
and the opposition contending that the
money could be spent to better advantage, alleging that the Government's
policy tended to favor those roads
which would be largely used by automobiles to the neglect of those which
were of great value to the farmers,

costly, It Is stated that the development of water powers will largely
compensate for the expenditure.
The waterway is designed to aid.

Following a long season in America, Mme. Schumann-Helnk departed
last spring for the other side. In
Beyreuth, Vienna, Berlin, Munich,
Frankfort, Dresden and Hamburg, this
Incomparable singer appeared again
In some ot the operatic roles she had
sung before with her finished vocal-
ism, art and dramatic Impersonations,
and the music critics united ln a tribute that will not soon be forgotton.
The people of Germany and Austria
rose to Schumann-Helnk upon her return to them with demonstrations that
eollpsed r.ll the exceptional ones that
had gone before.
In early November this glorious
singer returned to this side ot the Atlantic and made her reappearance
with the Boston Symphony Orchestra
in Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Brooklyn, Providence and Boston.
Soon afterward the distinguished contralto gave one of her song recitals
ln Carnegie Hall, New York, where
the three thousand odd seats were
too few to accommodate the host ot
admirers who desired to hear her
sing. Slnoe then she has been on concert tour extending to the Paolno
Coast and everywhere she has created
a furore. Her marvellous voloe, which
is of such an exceptionally big range
and of such a beautiful velvety quality,
has been the constant delight and wonder of her audiences. Never has she
sung better and never has hsr art

At the Walker Theatre Mme. Schumann-Helnk will render a particularly varied programme, Including operatic arias, folk songs and ballads.

All Canada is celebrating today. We are celebrating the birthday
of Britian'B great and good queen, Victoria. For over fifty years she
weilded the scepter of Love. And peace and plenty prevailed throughout the Empire. Queen Victoria was a friend to Canada. Her memory will ever remain freBh in the Canadian mind,
England's prestige was strengthened during the reign of thnt
Grand Woman, The nations of the world respected her for tbe power
she represented; they loved her for not calling it into action.
The development of the western provinces of Canada was begun
under the reign of Victoria. It lifts continued and grown greater and
���till more great under the reigns of Edward and George. Canada's,
star is in the ascendency. The western provinces will keep it there
for many, many years to come. And always the people of those provinces will revere the memory of the queen whose reign had such an
ennobling influence not only upon the British Empire, but upon the
entire civilized world���Queen Victoria,

If this high cost of living gets much higher we'll have to go up in

a short time ago that tho high cost of living is caused by the overproduction of gold. We wish somebody would produce enough to
make us squeal. Jim Hill says that the high cost of living iB due to
high living. He evidently means to the high living of the high-liver
who has tlie market by the tail. No one has ever accused the poor
cuss in the ditch with living too high.

[II |0ul-AM:> was K|a- for a ttmt
I n j there was an excuse for bis
nfflfflPfl silence. It began to dawn on
I__hBv bim tbnt this wns an extraordinary adventure for a man on whose
shoulders rested tbe responsibilities of
one of the greatest engineering tasks
on the continent and wbo was due
to take a train for the seat of bis
operations at 8 o'clock In the morning.
He looked down at bla companion,
saw tbe sheen ot Her hair as It rippled
ont from under ber fur turban, studied
tbe soft contour ot ber cbeek and chin
without himself being observed and
noticed Incidentally tbat tbe top of tbe
bewitching bead beside bim came lust
about to a level with tbe cigar whlcb
be was smoking. He wondered If he
were making a fool of himself.
Where tbe river ferry waa half
drawn np on the snore, its stern frozen
ln the Ice, he paused and looked down
at the girl In quiet surprise. Sbe nodded, smiling, and motioned across tbt
"I was over tbere once tonight" said
Howland aloud. "Didn't see anj
bouses and beard nothing but wolves.
Is tbat where we're going?"
Her wbite teeth gleamed at bim. and
_�� waa conscious oi i warm pressure
against hla arm as the girl signified
that thev were to cross. His perplexity Increased. On the tartber shore
the forest came down to tbe river's
edgeln a black wull of spruce and balsam. Beyond that edge of the wilderness he knew tbat no part of Prince
Albert Intruded. It waa possible that
across from them was a squatter's cab-
In, and yet if this were so and tbe girl
was going to It why bad sbe told him
that Bbe was a stranger ln tbe town?
And why bad sbe come to him for the
assistance sbe promised to request of
him instead of seeking It of those
wbom Bhe knew?
_.Js)~Ul told me you were a stranger,"'
be salcl- "Tou seem pretty well acquainted oyer bere. Where are we going?"      l
This time ahe responded witb an emphatic negative shake of her head, at
tbe same time pointing with her free
hand to the well defined trail that
wound np from tho ferry landing Into
the forest. Earlier In tbe day Howland bad been told that this was ths

wildernesses beyond the Saskatchewan. Two days before tbe factor from

of Jean Croisset and tbe _ien from tbe
Lac la Ronge country. Since tbe big
snow, which bad fallen four feet deep
ten daya before, a Irtest man had
now and then used lift I trail on bis
way down to tbe edge ti civilization,
bnt none from Prince Albert bad
traveled It In the otber direction.
Howland had been told tbis at the
hotel, and he shrugged bis thoulders In
candid bewilderment as he stared
down Into tbe girl's face. She seemed
to understand bis thoughts, and again
her mouth rounded Itself Into tbat bewitching red O, which gave to her face
an expression of tender entreaty, of
pathetic grief that tbe soft lips were
powerless to voice the words whlcb
she wished fo speak. Tben suddenly
she darted a few steps from Howland
and wltb tbe toe of ber shoe formed a
single word In tbe surface of tbe sqow.
Bhe rested ber band lightly on Howland's shoulder as he bent over to
make It out ln the elusive starlight.
"Camp!" be cried, straightening himself. "Do you mean to say you're
camping out here?"
She nodded again and again, delighted that he understood ber. Tbere was
something so childishly sweet ln ber
face, In the glsdness of ber eyea, that
Howland stretched out both bis band-
to her, laughing aloud. "TouI" he exclaimed. "Ton, camping ont berel"
Wltb a quick little movement she came
to him, still laughing wltb ber eyes
and lips, and for an Instant be beld
both ber hands tight In bis own. Her
lovely fsce was dangerously near to
him. He felt tbe touch ot her breath
on his face; for an Instant caught the
sweet scent of ber hair. Never had
he seen eyes like those that glowed up
tt bim softly, ailed wltb the gentle
starlight; never ln his life had he
dreamed ot a face like this, so near to
him that It sent the blood leaping
through his veins In strange excitement He held the bands tighter, and
the movement drew the girl closer to
him until for no more tban a breath
he felt her against bis breast In that
moment be forgot all sense of time and
place; forgot his old self-Jack Howland - practical, unromantlc master
builder of railroads; forgot everything
but this presence of the girl, the warm
pressure against his breast, the lure
ot the great brown eyes tbst had come
so unexpectedly Into hi* Ute. In another moment he had recovered him

pulled herself uway. A dozeu feet behind ber in tbe thick shadows of tbe
forest trees sumethlng took shape and

a huge form leap rrom the glootu and

For an Instant Howland neither
thought nor reasoned. Had be done
so be would probably have met bis
mysterious assailant, pitting bis naked
fists agalnat the knife. But the very
mainspring of bis existence, wbicb Is
self preservation, called oa bim to do
otherwise. Before the startled cry on
hla Una found-, utterance he flung bim
self fsce downward in the snow. Tbe
move saved bim. and aa tbe other
stumbled over his body, pitching headlong into the trail, he snatched forth
bis revolver. Before be could tire there
came a roar like tbat of a beast from
behind and a terrific blow fell on his
head. Under the weight of a second
assailant be was crushed to the snow,
his pistol slipped from bis grasp and
two great hands choked a despairing
cry from bis throat. He saw a face
over him, distorted wltb passion, a
bnge neck, eyes tbat flamed like angry
garnets. He struggled to tree his pinioned arma. to wrench off tbe death
grip at his throat out his efforts were
like those of a child agalnat a giant
In a last terrible attempt be drew np
hla   knees  Inch   by  Inch  under  the
weight of his enemy. It wae his only
chance, his only hope. E��eu aa he fetf
the fingers about bis throat sinking
like bot Iron into bis flesh tnd ths
breath slipping from his body, he remembered this murderous knee punch
taught to him by the rough fighters
of the Inland seas, and wltb all tbs
life tbat remained ln him he sent It
crushing Into the other's abdomen.
It was a moment before be knew
that it had been successful, before thi
film cleared from hla eyes and be aaw
his assaUant groveling ln the anow.
He rose to his feet dazed and staggering from tbe effect of the blow on
hla head and the murderous grip at
his throat Half a pistol shot down

The half breed's thin dark face came

he looked about bim for tbe girl. She
was gone.
"I happened here���Just In time-with

wt must go."
The smile had gone from his face
and there was a commanding firmness
ln tbe grip that fell on tbe young engineer's arm Howlatd waa conscious
tbat things were twisting about him
tad that there was a strange weakness
ln his limbs. Dumbly ba raised his
bands to bis bead, wblch hurt bim until he felt as It be must cry out ln his

Croisset's arm tightened about his
"She ees gone!" Howland heard him
lay, and there was something In the
half breed's low voice tbat caused him
to turn unquestloniagly and stagger
along beside him ln the direction of
Prince Albert
4nd yet as he went only halt cons-tew of wbat be was doing and leaning more and more beavUy on his
companlist, be knew tbat it was more
than the girl's disappearance that he
wanted to understand, for aa tbe blow
bad fallen on his head he was sure
tbat he bad beard a woman'a scream,
and as he lay ln the snow, dazed and
choking, spending his last effort In
bis struggle for life, tbere had come
to him as if from an Infinite distance
a woman's voice, and the words that
It bad uttered pounded ln his tortured
brain now as his bead dropped weakly
a gainst Croisset's shoulder.
"Mon Dleu. you are killing him���
killing bim!"
"I must carry you. M'aeur Howland," Jean aald. And aa be staggered
out on the Ice wltb his Inanimate bur-

.tat .'can Croisset had come so near
j to loslug the lite of this m'seur le eu-
I gineer?"
In only a subconscious sort of wny
, was Howland cognizant of anything
more that happened tbat night. When
he came back Into a full sense of bis
existence he found himself In his bed
1 at tbe hotel. There waa a dull, aching
pain In bis bend nnd neck, nnd wben
be raised nn Inquiring band It came In
Contact with a thick bnndngc.
Soon there came a sound nt the door,
tad he twisted his bend, grimacing
frith tlie pain it caused him Jean wns
lookinc In nt him.
j    "Ah  m'seur ees nwnke!" he snld.
i    "Is II had. Croisset?"
j   "So bnd'that yon will be In bed for
| a day or so. m'seur    That Is all "
"Impossible!" cried the young .-D-1-
neer. "I must take tbe 8 o'clock iraln
In tbe morning.   1 must be In Le I'as"-
"It Is o o'clock now." Interrupted
Jean softly    "Do von feel like going?"
Howland straightened himself aud
fell back suddenly wltb a sharp cry.
"The devil!" he exclaimed. After a
moment he added. "Tbere will be no
other train for two days " As he raised
j*. band to bis aching bead his other
cloaed tightly about Jean's lithe brown
fingers. "I want to thank yon for
what you did. Crutsset. I don't know
what happened. I don't know who
tbey were or why they tried to kill me.
There was s girl 1 waa going with
He dropped his hand In time to set
the strange Are tbst had leaped Into
tbe half breed's eyes, in astonishment
be half lifted himself again, his wbltt
face questioning Croisset
"Do you know?' he whispered eagerly. "Who was ahe? Why did sbe
lead me Into that ambush? Why did
tbey attempt to kill me?"
Wltb a quick movement the halt
breed drew away bla band and moved
toward the door. Halfway he paused
and turned.
"M'seur, I have come to you with a
warning. Do not go to Le Pas. Do
not go to tbe big railroad camp on the
Wekusko. Return into the south. Per
baps you will understand when I tell
you this warning Is sent to you by the
Ilttle Meleese."
Before Howlund could recover from
his surprise Croisset had pulsed swiftly through the door. For a long time
be lay with his eyes closed trying to
clear for himself tbe mystery of the
preceding nlgbt. The one thought
which obsessed bim was tbat be bad
been duped. His lovely acquaintance
ol. tbe preceding evening had ensnared
hf,*. completely with her gentle smile
aud ber winsome mouth, and be gritted bis teeth grimly aa he reflected
how easy be had been. Deliberately
sbe had lured him Into tbe ambush
wbicb would hare proved fatal for
bim had It not been for Jean Croisset
And Bhe was not a mute! He bad
beard ber voice. Wben tbat death grip
waa tightest about bla throat there
had come to bim tbat terrified cry,
"Mon dleu, you are killing bim���killing
His breath came a little faster as be
whispered the words to himself. Tbey
appealed to bim now with a significance which he had not understood at
first. He waa sure tbat In tbat cry
there had been real terror; almost, he
fancied, aa be lay wltb hla eyes shut
tight that he could still hear the shrill
note of despair In tbe voice. If tbe
girl bad calmly led bim into the am-
.insh why ln tbe last moment wben
success seemed about to crown ber duplicity bad she cried out ln that agony
of terror?
Was It possible that face and eyes
like those could bave led him Into a
death trap? Despite the evidence of
wbat bad happened he found himself

Athletic Players Are an Inquisitive Lot
TTARRY DAVIS attributes much of
A-* the success of the Philadelphia
Luhletlca to the fact that the young
(nembers of the team are great on asking questions. "I believe," says Davis,
Hhat Eddie Collins, Jack Barry, Prank
[Baker and Jack Mclnnls, the Athletic
.Infield, asked more questions than any
other four players In baseball There
was hardly ever a play they did not
ask questions about They wanted to
know if there was another or better
way to make plays. Their questions
got everybody to thinking, and as a result the Athletics had plays that no
other teams had." '
