Chase and the Shuswap Lakes in
the Heart of Playgrounds of
North America.
The tide of travel that flows over the
main line of the C. P. R. in the course
of a summer Is enormous. The year of
the Seattle fair the passes of the
Rockies saw the transit of not less than
twenty thousand passengers per week
for several weeks. The special traffic
of that special year is now the usual
As day follows day and we watch the
endless procession of passenger trains
both east and west, we seldom stop to
think that in a year the number of peo*
pie who ride over those rails runs into
the hnndreds of thousands. To watch
the interested faces at the car windows
or the serenely satisfied group on the
rear of the observation car, makes one
speculate on what it is that brings them
all. Why Is it that the winter ebb and
the summer flood are each year touching
higher marks ?
Bnsiness is drawing many. They see
big dollars waiting for them along the
way or at the journey's end. The hope
of a home is bringing others. The. woj-d
home-seeker has made a place for itself
in our everyday speech, showing that
such people are numerous among us.
But perhaps half, at least, of the travellers are just out to play, to see things
and enjoy them.   They are tourists.
What started Mr. and Mrs. Tourist
on their wanderings? A number of
things, doubtless. Mr. Tourist had a
few hundred or perhaps a few thousand
dollars after he had paid his butcher
bought shoes for his offspring (if he has
,"nj*: which he very oftenhasn't). Bnme-
.hing had to be done with that* surplus
cash. People travel more now-a-days
because the country is wealthier than it
used to be���and more restless.
Near to the habitat of Mr. and Mrs.
Tourist was the tourist agent, who in
eastern cities is never far from those
who show symptoms of wanderlust. He
sent them booklets gorgeously adorned
with pictures of things that don't flourish
in the summer climate of New York and
Chicago and Philadelphia. There were
bald-headed mountains and wooded canyons, and glaciers, ard Indians dressed
in blankets, and grizzly bears with cubs,
aud other things equally inviting.
The tourist family began to warm up
to the pictures of the ice fields, as July
and August loomed on the horizon. A
few weeks later saw them rolling westward, to find, like a tourist who lived
before the C. P. R. was built, that the
half had not been told.
The growth of tourist travel is one of
the proofs that the wealth of the world
is increasing. The tourist business is
getting to be a big business. There is
money in it, money for the railways, for
the hotels} for the livery man, for the
boatman, for everybody, even for the
tourist himself.
Take for example one of the eastern
provinces, where this modern business
is well developed. Look at Nova Scotia.
It is a great country for fruit, and was
until recently, if it is not yet, the first
province in the export of fish. Its apple
crop is worth about two million dollars
annually, its fish catch about the same,
but its tourists hike for home every
autumn leaving five millions of their
big round dollars to swell the bank
accounts of the Bluenoses.
There are tourist centres, big and
little, the world over. Europe has its
Alps and Italy, while each great city or
smaller town has its own resort. London
goes to Brighton, Paris to Boulogne,
New York to Newport, Calgary to Banff.
As Switzerland is to Europe, so is
British Columbia to North America.
Already the value of its tourist traffic
to this province easily runs into the
millions. The time is coming when
those vaBt rugged spaces that we count
as waste will be worth as much to us as
our mines and timber. Our wealth of
mountain, lake and forest, coupled with
our matchless climate, will make thla
the greatest playground that mother
earth has given to her children.
And what's more, they're coming to
Chase. The Shuswap country, and the
region tapped by Adams Lake is already
famed for lumber, trout, apples and
grizzly bears. Anyone who has been too
delicately reared to enjoy the society of
the grizzlies can float about on the lakes
or lie in the shade of a young apple tree.
There's rest for the weary and sport
for the sporty around the shores of the
of Chase's Bt,M
uty Spots.
Work  of  Road  Gang  Under
R, W. Bruhn Makes Big
Improvement to Town
Big things have been doing for the
laat few days in the way of Improving
Chase streets. Blasting powder and
plough and scraper and grader, half a
doien teams of heavy draft horses and
a bunch of sturdy men to handle the
equipment, have been making some
changes in thelandseape. Stumpshave
disappeared that long disputed the right
of way with the belated traveller home*
ward bound. Shuswap Avenue haa been
put into first class shape from the top
of the hill to the station. There is no
more chance on that road to hit the
high spots, for they have all been levelled down to an even grade from top to
bottom of the hill. The whole has been
well gravelled, and a new bridge the
full width of the driveway put over
Chase Creek. The eastern end of the
avenue, on tbe flat, has been cleared
and graded, giving access to a number
of houses that have been built there in
the last year.
Coburn Street has also been graded
throughout. The hills on Sicamous and
Okanagan Avenues have been cut down
and graded.
The remainder of the appropriation
is being spent on sidewalks. A plank
walk six feet wide is being laid along
Chase Street from SicamoUB to Okanagan Avenue. An extension will also be
made to the sidewalks on Sicamous
The next thing in order, which will
no doubt be provided for in the appropriations for next year, is the grading
of the bank on> Sicamous Avenue so at

Regulations Which are of Interest
to   Residents   of  the
Shuswap Valley.
Various new regulations and orders-
in-council under the Game Protection
Act have met the approval of the Lieutenant-governor and among the more
important is a regulation reducing the
number of pheasants a sportsman may
kill in one day to six. It is also provided that no person may hunt or kill
pheasants if there be three inches of
snow on the ground.
Ducks, geese, snipe and grouse of
all kinds open in this district on September 2nd, grouse shooting remaining open
till the end of the year and duckB and
so on until 28th February, 1918.
A close season ie declared for beaver
throughout the province from November
lBt, 1912, to November 16th, 1913.
Coast deer may be shot throughout
this district from September 2nd to
December 15th.
Prairie chicken may be shot in Yale-
Cariboo from September 15th to October 15th.
A close season is declared for wapiti
throughout the mainland until September 1st, 1912. White-tailed deer also
enjoy a close season in the Okanagan
and Similkameen until the same date;
and moose benefit from a close season
in the Columbia electoral district until
September 1st, 1913.
Rev. G. W. Wilson, Supt. of Home
Missions for the Presbyterian Church in
this province, wae In town on Tuesday.
Will Celebrate Royally.
From 1812 to 1912 is a far cry for a
western city and there are few places
on this side of the Rockies where a modern up-to-date town is able to celebrate
the hundreth anniversary of its founding.
The citizens of Kamloops have not let
so unique an opportunity pass unnoticed
and a three day fete has been arranged
which will eclipse anything heretofore
attempted in the interior of British Columbia. Over ten thousand dollars has
been subscribed for prizes and attractions and every cent of it is to be spent
to give the visitors who come to help
the city celebrate, a good time for three
whole days.
Pageants and parades, sports and
races, fireworks and fun will be tho order of day and night and the gathering
will break up with a confetti carnival
when King Frolic wil reign supreme
throughout the city.
Single fares have been arranged on
the Canadian Pacific Railway to cover
the 17th, 18th, and 19th of September.
Worth the Money.
As an indication that the country realizes the need for obtaining the best men
and paying them the best figure, the
fact that not a single newspaper, so far
aB can be learned, objected to the employment, at fifteen thousand a year, of
Mr. H. L. Drayton as chairman of the
Dominion railway commission is significant. When private Arms like the
C.P.R. and G.T.R., and other corporations ase paying men as high as fifty
thousand a year, Canada cannot expect
to attract first-class service unless the
salaries offered come at least somewhere
near the offering of private companies.

Tourists on Their Way Through the
Mountains Would Do Well to
Stop at Chase.
E. E. Brooks has returned from a
trip to Penticton, where he has business
interest In the Brooks Mackenzie Lumber Co.
Our cut this week shows one of the
many scenic attractions of Chase and
vicinity. The falls are in the gorge
through which the Chase Creek comes
down from the hills to irrigate the fertile Shuswap flat, to fill the water-
mains of the town, and to turn the cylinders of the Tribune press. Useful
things are often beautiful as well, and
that is true of the Chase Creek.
For those who are alive to the beautiful in their surroundings, the Shuswap
country is an endless delight. The rugged forest covered hills with lakes
between, resemble the Scottish highlands. But the lakes are longer, and
the hills and valleys numberless, and
all but a few are nameless.
The scenery here differs distinctly
f rqm that of the Rockies and Selkirks,
There the mountains are naked and cold,
their sharp and jagged peaks and bare
grey sides have nothing to say to the
new comer. One must live long among
them to learn their language.
In the Shuswap country, however, the
mountains are warm and sheltering. If
you come from the east they are just
the hills of your childhood magnified.
The grass and the trees and the wild
flowers speak to every man in the
"mother tongue of his imagination."
The lakes with their motor boats are

The Movies
Lakeman's entertainment on Friday
evening was a dance and picture show
combined. It was the pictures that
Mr. Lakeman has always put on good
pictures, and he explains that it was a
damage to the star wheel, whatever
that is, that gave the pictures the
jerks. He will have anew star wheel
this week, so you may expect the show
to be put on in the usual faultless style.
Manager of Land Co.
, W. S. Mitchell, manager of the Shuswap and Lillooet Fruitlands, Ltd., was
in Chase on Wednesday. Mr. Mitchell's
company is subdividing some excellent
orchard land at Sorrento and Belling it
in ten acre blocks. The company has
a big gang of men at work clearing up
these farms, which they turn over to
the purchasers all ready to stick the
plough into.
On the Water Front
Harry Fowler and John Brown came
down Tuesday in Harry's new boat. He
says he won't take the back-wash of
anything in the lake now, unless it is
Congreve's " Sicamous Wolf." He ran
away from W. T. Slavin's "Widgeon'
coming down, but thought it would be
bad form to pass the "Old Reliable," so
tied up to her stern and climed in with
the Commodore. Before reaching Chase
they took R. P. in tow and added him
to the company. They all like Jock, he
never sails short of supplies.
Back to the Land.
Whether the country is steadily to
run behind in agriculture and in the
provision of food animals for its ever-
increasing population is a problem of
large demension and import. And whether it would not be able to maintain a
more even relationship between the
growth of agriculture and and manufacture is a question worthy of study by
statesman and economists. Prosperity
should be balanced and harmonious if it
is to prove reliable.
Yes, and crops should be large and
the supply of beef ample at fair and
reasonable prices if there is to be prosperity. It is pounds of beef and bushels
of grain, not high prices, that make for
the prosperity of both producers and ���
consumers. It is the habit of people
near to Wall Street to argue that a
small crop at a high price is the equivi-
alent of a bountiful crop at less price,
if the total value is the same, an argument altogether fallacious, as has been
shown many times. It is the prosperous state of the largest number of the
inhabitants that is to be coveted,
and this is attained when there is a
plentiful supply of food and clothing to
be had without exchanging the last dollar that can be earned to obtain the
same, This is what may be called the
balanced condition, anil it is a condition
seldom encountered. Saturday Evening,
The Mack Swain Show.
The Show in the Black Douglas Opera
House on Monday night was not what you
would call classy. A real classy play
won't draw a good house and the
Mack Swain Company got a big
crowd. Folks went away feeling they
had got the worth of their money.
The performance waa r 'rifle mushy
in spots, but it was clean and free from
coarseness. We met only one person
who had any kick to make. He is a
confirmed old bachelor, and the*r*~iance
of life doesn't appeal to him any more.
Or perhaps the play made him think
of what he had missed.

To the tourist, who has been doing
Banff and Lake Louise and Field, a stop
at Chase on his way to the coast gives
the variety that makes the spice of life.
The Lure of the Lights.
Our old friend, Tom Jones, is in town
again. His adventurous disposition began to weary of watching the spuds
grow and Harry Fowler make roads on
the shores of the peaceful Shuawap. If
we succeed, as we fondly hope, in securing his valuable services on our newt-
gathering staff, our readers may get
ready for something tpicy. TWO

However much or little a doctor

than we. we try to make ourselvee
think he doee, for on him we propoee
to unload ourselves of a responsibility that breaks us down.
Dr. Bolster looked across tbe bed at
his colleague. He tapped hla heavy
chin with s fat forefinger and parsed
Us lips.
"Liver," he said succinctly.
"Nerves," retorted Dr. Pepper testily.
"Rigid diet," said Dr. Bolster lm-
"Feed btm up." snapped Dr. Pepper.
"Exhausted nerves need plenty of good
nourishing food-rare roast beef and"-
"And send for the undertaker," ended Dr. Bolster grewsomely. "Not a bite
to eat-merely a cup ot thin gruel,

administered three times a day. In
one week he will be"-
"Orderlng a marble slab for our
Mend." Interjected Dr. Pepper, arising
and buttoning bis black coat abont hla
scrawny neck.
The pretty nurse looked from one to
the other of the two rival village doctors. They had been holding a consultation on the case of Bemls Blaine,
a prominent townsman, Mr. Blaine
had been 111 for several weeks, and he
declared when tlie doctors were not
present tbnt nothing but the skilled
nursing of Miss Folk bad saved his
worthless life.
"Chuck tbe pills and potions out ot
the house," he commanded fiercely a
dosen times a da,", but pretty Miss
Folk smiled and shook ber head end
continued to administer the doses Impartially, so that neither doctor might
feel aggrieved ln me matter.
Now Dr. Bolster proceeded to write
down elaborate directions for the nurse
to follow until his next visit, and Dr.
Pepper proceeded lo do tbe same.   By
a strange coincidence of fate each one
of Dr. Pepper's orders flatly contradicted those of bis distinguished colleague, although be had not set eyes
on the other's orders. Dr. Pepper was
Bemls Blaine's family doctor, and be
had ln a moment of desperation, engender-! by Bemls Blaine's contrariness to respond to his treatment, called
ln Dr. Bolster In consultation upon the
case. Dr. Bolster had remained ever
since, and now it was a daily custom
for the rival physicians to go to the
alckroom ln company and wrangle over
the prostrate and pain racked form of
Bemls Blaine.
"If be ls no better tomorrow we may
operate," whispered Dr. Bolster to Miss
Folk before be left.
"Operate?" Dr. Pepper fairly danced
up and down. "I've always promised
Bemls tbat so long aa 1 lived I'd never
stick a knife Into bim. He don't be
Ueve tn operations."
"1 shall perform the operation myself," returned Dr. Bolster, coolly pull
Ing on bis woolen gloves. His long
chin whiskers wagged aggressively.
"Never! Bemls Is my patient, ind
if anybody operates I sballl" Little
Dr. Pepper drew bimself up to his fullest height and glared at his burly opponent.
"Gentlemen," cried Miss Folk timidly, "shall I continue to give the
splrlta of niter to reduce tbe fever?"
"Yes," chipped Dr. Pepper quickly.
"No," vetoed Dr. Bolster.
Miss Folk looked appeallngly from
one to another. Tears gathered behind
her thick lashes. "Something must be
done," she whispered, with a sob ln
her throat
The doctors confronted eacb other ln
tbe hall.
"Diet!" said Dr. Bolster obstinately.
"Nonsense. Feed him up." Dr. Pepper was close at band.
"Atlantic City for him." ordered Dr.
"Rubblsb! No place Ilk* tbe Adirondack*."
"Oh, doctors!" cried Miss Folk from
the upper hall, and by the nurse's tone
the two doctors knew that something
baa happened to their patient
"I'll bet he's gone. 1 predicted It"
puffed Dr. Bolster.
"Host have taken some of yow beastly stat. then." growled Dr. Pepper.

and sisters of the absent Bemls ran
distractedly to and fro and the nnrae
waited Impatiently'for tbe return of

with apparently Ilttle heed to tbe disappearance of tbetr best paying patient
"If you'll stop Elgiagglng In front of

Pepper to tbe physician In front.
"I'm willing to give your old mouse

tbe rlght-a grave mistake, which he

Dr. Pepper turned his machine to
the right. Tbere waa a sickening
crash, and then the moon witnessed
two angry doctors glaring at each
other from tbe wreckage of twn machines.
The first thought that leaped to the
mind of each wns the repair bill for
bis machine, the second thought was
how to pay It, and the third, n comforting one. was the reflection that Bemls
Blaine waa a patient whose bill might
be stretched Indefinitely.
"Hurt?" asked l>r. Pepper reluctantly.
"No You?" l)r Bolster was equally loath to spend time or sympathy
upon his colleague
"No If you'll excuse me I'll hurry

ravenously of a large plate of chop

gown, a golf cap. a pair of knitted bed
slippers and sadly needed a shave.
Watching him enlny this meal were
several people.
The rival doctors pressed their

nurse, the shoemaker from the corner
and the village constable.

Not much, perhaps. But there are aome names that have never
won much favor. How would you like to be called AnaniaB ? How
many men on the street can tell the names of the leaders in the Mexican mix-up.
And why the never ending discussion as to what the new baby
shall be called ? When a new product or a new subdivision is to be
put on the market, the battle is hulf won if the right name is found*
On the other hand, a wrong name is a misfortune. It takes time to live
it down. Call a girl Jemima and ten to one she suffers a nervous collapse before she becomes of age. Make a boy answer to Jtthoso'phttt
and it is only a question of time till he takes to the woods or commits
A good name should either sound like a running brook or else

In christening the country around these lakes for the purpose of
convenient advertising, a little thought and care at this stage may
mean dollars in the years to come. We want to make the name
Shuswap as much a housahold word as are the words Okanagan or
Yakima or Sacramento. The fewer other words we hitch up together
with it the sooner that end will be reached.
We can understand the Observer's UBe of "Shuswap Lake District"
to describe its feeding grounds. The name is accurately descriptive.
But in a name for advertising purposes, accurate description must be
sacrificed to convenience. "Shuswap Lake District" leaves the mouth
dry and drives a man to drink.
We do not wish by our lose dixit to try to fix a name. It rests, how.
ever, with the Observer and the Tribune and the advertisers along the
lake to give a name and make it stick. The use of " Shuswap Valley "
and "Shuswap District" instead of "Shuswap Lake District" will leave
the really important word Shuswap more nearly strippt1 for action.
A name is not the most notable thing about a maul or a locality,
but it may help to make or mar the fortunes of either.   \

Waters from the Best Ingredients.
In her best book,''John Halifax," Miss Mulock speaks of "the
peculiarly British quality or daring." It is not peculiarly British; it
is found the world over. It is an instinct, about as common among
men as the instinct to bury a bone is among dogs. If you keep a dog
for the first year of his life on a hard floor where he can't dig, he will
lose the inBtinet and never bury any bones till his own are buried. So
if a man has uo occasion to use his instinct of daring, it withers.
Every instinct, in man or dog, has a fact iu his life to match it.
The bone-burying instinct in dogs is matched by the fact that dogs
are often hungry when their grubstake is gone, and the buried treasure
scores. To the instinct of daring in men corresponds the fact that
some things are worth throwing life away for.
One of the best things about aviation, so far, iB that it gives men
a chance to exercise tins instinct. Flying is so glorionsly dangerous.
For those of ns who never take the risk, it is good to see men and
women hold their own lives cheap to advance one step further man's
triumph over nature, Some day it might be up to ub lo throw our lives
away for some thing better than the conquest of the air. Such things
bave been and will be again.
Life is like money; it should lie neither wasted nor hoarded, but
valued at its worth and spent upon occasion.

On the all British Columbia page of the Vancouver Sun for Monday
appears a column from its Salmon Arm correspondent boosting that
progressive young city. That's what we want. It iB the kind of Btuff
that should be kept appearing in the city dailies as often as can be.
We note, too, with satisfaction, the way the writer sprinkles the
word Shuswap through his copy. But look at this: "Salmon Arm,
the only town of any importance on the Shuswap division of the main
line, takes its name from its situation, etc."
!';.; We pass it up with an indulgent smile, and invite the writer to
come down and have a look nt Chase. We have been at Salmon Arm,
and our impression iB that it is favored enough uot to need that kind
of advertising. We respectfully advise the Sun correspondent to grow
some more, get the big western outlook, and himself become in spirit
as large as are the resources that guarantee the growth a snd tability of
his town.

left this doggerel on our desk the other
day while we were out getting a shave.

It was a dickens of a storm,
We had last Friday night,
The guya who strolled along the street
Soon got in out of sight.
Down on Shaw's ranch it gathered up
About three tons of hay,
Next morning on this Bide the fence
In Chase's field it lay.
With grief Shaw's manly bosom heaves
And to himself says he:
" I wonder if George still believes
In reciprocity,"
Tbe other night just after twelve
1 walked out Coburn Street,
Two lovers sat upon a log
Wrapped in embraces sweet.
The log was one you've often seen
When you've beu on that trail,
It's on the left side of the bridge,
And snswers for a rail.
'Twas time those fools were home
in bed.
I couldn't stand for this,
And in the water threw a stone
To interrupt their blias.
They, starting quick, their balance
Crosswise the stream they jammed;
I didn't hear what the lovers Bald,
But the creek said, "I'll be dammed.''
Last week there went one day from
Three men in a canoe,
Alex Reid was one of them,
Strangers the other two.

BLATTENIN'O himself closely
against tbe black log* of the
wall, Howland paused on th*
platform' at the top of th*
stalre. HI* groping hand touched the
Jam of a door, and he held his breath
when hi* fingers Incautiously rattled
the ateel of a latch. In another moment he passed un three pace*���tour-
along tb* platform, at laat sinking on
his knee* ln tbe snow close under th*
window. Hla eyes searched tbe lighted
room an Inch at n time. He law a
section ot wall a I Ural dimly Illuminated, tben a siniill table near the
window covered witb books and magazines and beside It a reclining chair
burled thick under a great white bear
rebe. On the table, but beyond his
vision, was Ibe lump. He drew himself a few Inches more through th*
snow, leaning still farther ahead, until
he saw tbe foot of a white bed. A little more and he stopped, his white
face close to the window pane.
On the bed, facing bim. sat Meleese.
Her chin was burled ln tbe cup of her
hands, and he noticed that ahe waa In
a dressing gown and that her beautiful hair waa loosed and flowing ln
glistening waves about ber. as though
she had just brushed It for tbe nlgbt
A movement, a slight shifting of bar
eyes, and ahe would have seen him.
He was filled with an almost mastering Impulse to press hla face closer,
to tap on the window, tn draw her
eyes to him. hut wen as his hnnd rose
to do the bidding of that Impulse
something restrained him. Slowly tbe
girl lifted ber head, and he was thrilled to And that another Impulse drew
him back until his ghostly face was a
part of the elusive snow gloom. He
watched her as she turned from him
and threw back the glory of her balr
until It half hid her tn a mass of copper and gold, From his,distance be
still gazed at her, choking and undecided, while sbe gathered It In three
heavy strands and platted It Into a
shining braid. <
For an Instant hi* eyes wandered.
Beyond her presence the room waa
empty. He saw a door and observed
tbat It opened Into Another room,
whlcb In turn could be entered through
the platform door neulnd him. Witb
his old eiactness for detail be leaped
to definite conclusion. These were
Meleese's apartments at the post,
separated from all others, and Meleese
was preparing to retire for tbe nlgbt
If the outer door was not locked aud
he entered, wbat danger could there
be of Interruption': It was late. Tbe
post was aBleep. He bad Been no light
but tbat In the window tbrnugb which
he was staring.
Tbe thought was scarcely born before be was at tbe platform door. The
latch clicked gently under bis fingers.
Cautiously be pushed tbe door Inward
and tbruBt In his bead and shoulders.
He waa tn a narrow corridor. Ahead
of him there shone a thin ray of light
from under the door that opened Into
Meleese's room. Nerving bimself for
the last move, he went boldly lo tbe
door, knocked lightly to give some
warntng of his presence and entered.
Meleese was gone. Tben at the far
end of the room he aaw a curtain, undulating slightly as If from tbe movement of a person un tbe otber side of
"Meleese!" be called softly.
White and dripping with snow, Ola

tbat was on her lips found utterance
the fear that bad blanched ber face
gave place tu a swift sweeping ttood
ot color. For a space there wns no
word between tbem aa tbey stood separated by tbe breadth uf the room.
Howland with his arms, held out to
ber tn pleading silence. Meleese with
ber bands clutcbed to ber bosom, ber
throat a-tretnble with strange sobbing
notes tbat made no more sound than
the buttering of a bird's wing
And Howland as be came across the
room to her found uo words to say.
none of the things that be had meant
to whisper,to her. but drew her to
htm and crushed her close to bla
breast, knowing that ln tbla moment
nothing could tell her more eloquently
than tbe throbbing of his own heart,
tne passionate pressure or Ms face to
ber race, uf bis grent love, which
seemed tu stir Into life tbe very silence that encompassed them.
It wus s silence broken after a mo*
ment by a short choking cry, tbe quick
breathing terror of a face turned suddenly up to bim robbed of Its flush
and quivering with a fear tbat still
found uo voice ln words. He felt tbe
girl's arms straining against bim for
freedom. Her eyes were filled with a

clutched again In th* clinging drapery
of hsr bosom.
"I have come for yon, Meleese," be
said as calmly as though his arrival
had been expected "Jean la my prisoner. I forced him to drive me to the
old cabin up on the mountain, and he
la waiting there with the dogs. We
will start back tonlght-now." Suddenly he sprang to ker again, hla
voice breaking In a low pleading cry.

"Tbey think you are dead���tbat you

Her words seemed to cboke her as
sbe struggled to finish.
"Tell Jean wbat!" be questioned
"Will you go tben?" she cried with
sobbing eagerness, as If he already un-
derstond her. "Will you go bsck If

"No," be interrupted.

as If It bad been torn by an instant's
pain. The pallor bad gone from How*
land's race. The mute surrender In the
bowed head, tbe soft sobbing notes
tbat he beard now ln the girl's breath,
tbe confession that he read In her
voiceless grief, set his heart leaping,
and again he drew ber close Into bis
arms and turned ber face up to his

He stopped at tbe look that bad come
Into her face. Her eyes were turned
to the window He ssw them filled
with a strange terror, and Involuntarily bis own followed them to where The

About Chase
It is located on the main
Line of the Canadian Pacific
Railroad at the foot of the
Shuswap Lake at its outlet into
the South Thompson River.
It is the outfitting point for
the Adams Lake and Turn Turn
Lake country where Caribou
and Bear are to be found in
It is situated in the heart of
one of the best agricultural
districts in British Columbia, yet
It affords greater opportunities
for the fisherman and hunter
than any point along the line of
the C.P.R.
The bathing beaches here
are admittedly the best to be
found in the interior. The water
is warm and clear; the bottom
is sandy with a gentle slope
to deep water.
Two of the most beautiful
waterfalls in the west may be
reached in ten minutes walk
from the Chase station. There
are many more waterfalls along
the streams flowing into the
Adams and Shuswap Lakes.
The Adams River Lumber
Company, located at Chase, employs upwards of 500 men in
the mill and in the woods. A
second large mill is soon to be
erected which will likely more
than double the present pav roll
