WILL LOAN MONEY IN CHILLIWACK
The surest index to the future of
any community is the manifested
confidence in that community of
powerful financial institutions. Or
in other words when a large financial
concern is willing to back the judgement of its ollieers by deciding to
invest its money in  u  district,  the
noise is surely a joyful one to iho
people residing therein. A few
weeks ngo a gentlemen, high up in
tho world of finance in the person
of Mr. F.G. Cope. Assistant Secretary of the Sun Life Assurance Co.,
of Canada, snout several days in our
Valley quietly investigating conditions with a view towards establishing n loaning department for British
Columbia. A direct result of his
visit here, and elsewhere in the
Province, has been the decision of
the company, the largest of its kind
in Canada, with nn annual income
of over eleven million dollars, to at
once begin the investment of its funds
in B.C. securities. A local advisory
board composed of prominent Vancouver business men bus boon crcut-
oil and Mr. F. J. Hart, President
und General Manager of F. J. Hart
& Co. Ltd., has lieen appointed Loan
Manager for tne Province. The
real merits of the Chilliwack District
had doubtless a largo influence in
causing Mr. Cope to report favorably
upon British Columbia and it is a
source of gratification to those who
have implicit faith in our Valley,
to know that this feeling is shared
by men of such prominence in the
business world. The company will
loan money on improved farm lands
etc., and will be a great help to lho
up-building of legitimate enterprise.

Steele had been so astounded that lie
had found no opportunity to stop tho
Frenchman. Now, as he made a sign,
M. Hervo looked at the girl. She wns
sitting quite rigid in her steamer ehair,
and her lips were white. Her eyes
were on his own, and were entirely
steady.
"Will yuu tell us tho whole story, M.
Herve?" she asked.
".Mun dleu! 1 have been indiscreet.
I have made a faux pas!"
The Frenchman's disiress was genuinely deep.
"No," answered the g-Jrl, "1 must
know all the story, 1 thank you for
telling me,"
As Herve told his story, he realized
that tho woman whom Saxon had turned buck to warn, according to Hodman's sketching, was the woman sitting before him on Ihe deck of tho
Orinoco.

When the ship came abreast of the

The girl would not consent to an interval of rest afler her sea-voyage, bul
insisted on accompanying Steele at
once to lhe establishment, of the art
dealer who had the handling of Saxon's
pictures.
'I'he dealer had seen Mr. Saxon some
tlmo before as tho artist passed
through New York, but since that linn,
had received no wonl. lie had held fi

several letters to the Kentucky address

was enthusiastic over tlie art of the
painter, and showed lhe visitors a
number of clippings and reviews that
were rather adulation than criticism.

she noticed her father's palette lying

"The most notable piece of work
that has yet come from this remarkable palette," said the critic, "is a canvas entitled, 'Portrait of a lady.' In
this, Mr. Saxon has done something
more thun approximate the genius of
Frederick Marston. He has seemed to
carry It a point forward, and one is

Duska, handing tin* clipping to Steele.
"That picture and tlu; landscape from

The dealer was puzzled.
"Mr. Saxon," he explained, "directed

"He must havo made a mistake in

girl, in deep distress. "Ho must have

Steele.

their enthusiastic admiration were men
of a cult, and tinged with a sort ut cult
fanaticism. St. John, as falber-ln-law,
agent and correspondent, was enabled
to pose along the Boulevard Sl. Michael
as something of a high priest, and in
this small vanity he gloried. So, when
the questioners of the cafes bombarded
him with Inquiries as to when Marston
would tiro of his pose of hermit and
return to Paris, the British father-in-
law would throw out his Shallow ehest,
and allow an enigmatical smile to play

CHAPTER XVI.
Late one evening In the cafe beneath
the Blysee Palace Hotel, a tall man of
something like thirty-five, though aged
to the seeming of a bit more, sat over
his brandy and soda and the perusal
of a packet of letters. He wore travel-
ting dress, nnd, though the weather had
hardly the bitterness tn warrant it, a
fur-trimmed greatcoat fell across the
empty chair at his side. It was not
yet late onough for the gayoty that begins with midnight, and the place was
consequently unerowded. The stranger
had left a taxicab at the door a few
minutes before, and, without following his luggage into the office, he had
gone directly to tho cafe, to glance
over bis mall before heing assigned to
a room.
The man was tall and almost lean.
Had Steele entered the cafe at that moment, he would bave rushed over to the
seated figure, and grasped u hand with
a feeling that his quest had ended,
then, on second sight, he would have
drawn back, incredulous and mystified,
'I'hts guest lacked no feature that Robert Saxon possessed. Ills eyes held
the same trace uf lhe dreamer, though
a close scrutiny showed nlso a hard
glitter-—his dreams were different. The

be a bit more aggravated, more marked with streaked wrinkles abnut the
palm. He and the American painter
were as Identical as models struck

So, al last, he stood on a North river

churning water had widened and blurred the faces on the deck. Then, he
turned and hastened to make his own
final arrangements for sailing by the

a fow loiterers about Ibe basins, and
the view was clear to lho elevation on
the sido where, al the cab-stand, waited a row of motor "Inxls" and hansoms. The aflornoon was bleak, and
Ihe solemn monotone of London was
graver and more forbidding lhan usual.
Suddenly, his heart pounded with a
violence that made bis ehest feel like
a drum. With a sudden slurt, he called loudly, "Saxon!     Hold on, Saxon!"
then went ut a run toward the cabstand.
Ho had caught a lleeting and astounding vision. A man, with tho poise
and faco that ho sought, had just stepped into one of tlie waiting vehicles,
and given an order to the driver. Even
In his haste, Steele was too laic to do
anything more than tako a second cab,
and shout to Hie man on the box to
follow the vehicle that had just left
the curb. As his "taxi" turned into the
Strand, and slurred through tbo mud
past the Cecil and the Savoy, ho kept
his eyes strained on the cab ahead,
threading its way through the congested -"tifillie, disappearing, dodging, reappearing, and taxing* his gaze lo the
utmost. For a moment after they had
both crowded into Fleet street, ho lost
It, and, as ho leaned forward, searching
the jumble of trallic, his own vehicle
tame to a halt Just opposite the Law
Courts. Ho looked hastily out, to see
tho familiar shoulders of the man he
followed disappearing beyond a streot-
door, under the swinging "Sign of the
Cock."
Tossing a half-crown to the cabman, he followed up lhe stairs,
and    colored    lh'   room    where   the*
tables were almost deserted. A group
of men was silling lu one of the stalls,
deep In converse, and, though two wurr
hidden    by    lhe    dividing    pari it Ions.
Steele saw lhe one figure he sought til
Ilu- load of (he table, 'flic figure belli
forward lu conversation, and, while his
voice was low ami his words Inaudible
Lhe Kentucklan saw lhat Iho eyes were
gllttorlng wlib a bard, alino:d male
volenl keenness. As ho came hastily
hu ward, he caughl Ibe voice: li was
Saxons volco, yei Infinitely harder,
'flu* iwo companions were strangorB or
foreign aspoct, und ihey were listening
atlontlVOly, though one faco wore a
sullen BCOWl.
Steele came over, ami dropped bin
band on the shoulder id' the man he
Iind pursued.
"Hob!" be exclaimed, (ben balled.
flu- threo Cues looked up simultaneously, and In all was dlSplOOBUre
for Die abrupt Interruption of a con
vernal Ion evidently Int ended for nt
outside tari:. F.idi expression Was
blank ami devoid of recognition, and.
as ttie tall man rose to his feel, his lact
was blanker than ihe others.
Then, with lhe greater leisure for
scrutiny, Steele realized bis mistake.
For a time, im stood dumfounded at
the marvelous resemblance. II'- knew
without asking thai this man was the
double who had  brought  such  a langlf
into his friend's life.   He bowed coldly.
"1 apologize," he explained, shortly.
"'1 mistook this gentleman for ;-:■ nieonti
else."
The three nun inclined their heads
stifily, and the Kentucklan. dejected by
his sudden reverse from apparent sue-
c s to failure, turned on his heel, an**)
left the place. It had not, of course
occurred lo him to connect Ihe appearance of his snarler of Saxon's affairs
with the name on tho Paris hotel-list,
and ho was left more baffled lhan If
be had known only thc truth, in that
he bad been thrown upon a false trail.
The Kentucklan joined Mrs. Horton
and her niece in Genoa on their arrival.
As ho met the hunger in tbe girl's
ciuesiiuning eyes, his heart sickened al
the mongernoss of his news. He could
only say that Paris had divulged nothing*, and that a trip to London had
been equally fruitless of result. He
did not mention the fact that Saxoi
had registered at the hotel. That detail he wished to spare her.
She listened to this report, and at
Its end said only. "Thank you." but he
knew that something must be done. A
woman who could let herself be storm-
tossed by grief might ride safely out
of such an affair when tho tempest had
beaten itself out, but she, who merely
smiled more sadly, would not have even
tho relief that comes of surrender U
tears.
At Milan, there was a wait for several hours. Steele insisted on the glrl'f
going with him for a drive. At a picture-exhibition, they stopped.
"Somehow," said Steel.-, "l feel that
where there are paintings there may be
clews.   Shall we go In?"
The girl listlessly assented, and they
entered a gallery, which they found
already well filled. Steele was the
artist, and, once in tbe presence ol
groat pictures, he must gnaw Ins way
along b gallery wall as a rat gnaws
Its way through cheese, devouring ai
ho went, seeing only thai which was
directly before hhn. The girl's ryei*
ranged more restlessly,
Suddenly. Steele felt her clutch bo
arm.
"George!" she breathed In a tonf**-*
whisper.     "George!"
(Ho followed her Impulsively pointed
finger, and further along, as the crowd
of spectators opened, be saw, smiiint
from a frame nn the wall, the ey..i- anrl
lips of lhe girl herself.   Under the well-
flgure sl I  out
avo its fixed place
mingle with th*»
hardly more life-
arranged lights, Ilu*
as though II would let
on   the   oanVOS   nnd
human beings below,	
like Hum Itself.
"The portrait!" exclaimed Steele
breathlessly, 'Come, Duska; thai mat
develop something."
As ihey anxiously approached tiny
saw above the portrait another f luiilhir
cinv a*:; a landscape proMDtlni B
stretch of valley ami checkered flat,
with hills beyond, and a sky tuneful
wllh Ihe spirit of a Kentucky June.
Then, as Ihey enme nonr enough le
rend the labels, Steele drew back,
Startled, and bis brows darkened with
anger.
"My God!" ho breathed.
The girl Standing at  his elbow rend
on a brass tablet under each frame,
"Frederick Marston, pnxt."
"Whal doea II mean?" she Indignantly demanded, looking at the man whose
face had become rlghl and unreadable.
"It menus tbey have stolen his pictures!" ho replied, shortly. "It means
Infamous thievery at least, and I'm
afraid-" In his anger and surprint.
he had almosl forgotlen to whom he
wan speaking, Now, wllh realisation,
he bit off his utterance.
She was Stan-film: very straight.
"You needn't bo afraid lo tell me,"
sho said quietly; "I want to know."
"I'm afraid." said Steele, "it menus
foul play, Of course," he added In h
moment, "Marston himself Is not n
party lo the fraud. It's conceivable
that his ngent, this man St. John, has
done Hits tn Marston's absonan. I
must got to Paris and see,"

Change in Business!
An old business is Ruing out and a new business is coming in.
Mr. W. II. Trenholm as you nil know is nn enterprising far reaching business man wbo started business here in a small way, and
wbo did in a short time build up a business that any mnn eould
bo justly proud of. A business that was a credit to himself and a
great convenience to the public. If every man in Chilliwack
would show the snnie enterprising "get" that Mr. Trenholm has
done, this plnce would soon be known as the citv beautiful. The
work thai Mr. Tronholm lias done in this place stands as a monument tsi bis enterprising push and n valuable addition to the city.
Hut while be was strung in a|busmess way be wns weak financially and tlioso ill whose control be .was have pushed him out and
put strangers in bis place, wbo are here today and somewhere else
tomorrow, and the money which the public leaves with tbem goes
when thoy go and this place is just that much worse off for tbem
having been here, But n new furniture company is taking the
place of the old one with temporary quarters two doors nearer the
corner than Trenholm's old stand (same side) where we have now
a smnll stock on band and more arriving as fast as the avenues of
trade will permit. We promise you thai wc are going to sell
bright new up-tn-date furniture and bouse furnishings cheaper
thnn you can buy the -.ail end of an old stock thrown on the market with a whoop and a yell. It is thc well known policy of sale
booinors to advertise that tbey are selling for less tlmn cost and
nt the same time guarantee tbeir employers a good margin of
profit besides tbeir own rake off., The New Furniture Company
will not promise you anything that tbey don't intend to do. We
will have u full stock in soon which lias been bought right and we
arc going to sell it away duwn. We ask you to wait. We want
you to wait. We believe ymi will wait. We know it will pay
you to wait.    Wait for me, wait ond see.

COMMUNICATION
Tin' Killtiirof olio Free Press docs notnceeasarlly
lucrs'c ssiili "iiiiiiniis expressed under this licn.f.
I'M ilur Free Press:
Dear Sii—Of the ordinary routine transaction^ of our City Council
the general public take little notice,
leaving these affairs to their representatives; but now and again an
occasion arises when, for the best
interests of the city, citizens should
take notice and sjieak suit clearly on
the doings of the Council. The
action of tbe Council at its last
meeting, in respect to one of those
special occasions, is worthy of reprobation and calls for united opposition on the part of all good citizens.
We refer to tbe deal with the saloons.
The law as it stood was that the
saloons were allowed  to be open at
7 o'clock a.m., and remain open
till 10 p.m., each working day except Saturday, when they were to
close at 7 p.m. The hotels requested
the Council to change the regulation,
asking that on Saturdays they be
allowed to keep tbe bars open until
HI o'clock p.m., and iu lieu of this
concession they proposed to open at
8 a.m. instead of 7 as heretofore.
Tbe"wise men" not of "theeast"
took the case under consideration,
and we have been informed by His
Worship, the Mayor, that the intelligence of the city in its assembled
wisdom conceded to the liquor sellers
tbeir demand, lt appears thai the
Mayor's defence of llm Council's
action is, that those arriving by train
and iiutos on Saturday evenings
were, under previous existing law,
deprived of the exhilarating tonic
lo lie purchased at the saloons, anil
out of sheer consideration for the
comfort of these travelling gentry,
the Council granted the saloon keepers' requoBt. That we suspect to be
a veritable "mayor's nest" with the
Mayor a little off.
When the first gentleman of the
city would advance such a "cock
and bull story," which is neither
argument nor reason, and thus think
to satisfy citizens, it gives one a
vivid conception of the estimate
His Worship puts on tlieir intelligence. As the action of the Council
was wholly in the interests of the
travelling public (?) nnd not in interest of the saloons (!) we submit
that instead of having changed the
city regulation, a. brilliant idea
would have been for the "intelligence" of the Council to have petitioned the B.C. E. II. to make a
change of lime-table so as to allow
its patrons to arrive in our city
bofssre 7 p.m. to allow tbem to"wet
tlieir whistle." It is to be hoped
that thc Council may yet see the
wisdom of petitioning the railway
authorities for a concession on their
pnrt, and plnce the lnw where it
was previous to their meeting of
the 22nd.
But the Mayor's excuse offered as
n defence, does not apjiear to have
been tbe reason for the saloon keepers request, lt is probable that they
gave the minimum amount of
thought to trams and iiutos, but
they were fully aware that wage-
earners received their wages on Saturday evenings, and that three additional hours on Saturday evenings
for dealing in liquid supply would
yield a much larger margin of profit
thnn under the regulation existing
heretofore. The assembled "intelligence' ' was outwitted by the assembled craft of the saloon men.
Up to the time of this change the
business men of our city received
pnrt of the working-man's wages
for supplies necessary to the household, but under the change the business men will Iind that the saloons
will take in the cash from 7 to 10 p.
in., while they will lie asked
to give their goods on credit.
In this wretched deal of thc Council we take pleasure in noting one
honorable exception — Alderman
Mctlillivary.
In behalf of the working-man we
call for a redress.

The Mob and Mandy
By DUDLEY GLASS
Crashing out uf thc cane-brake and
Into tho big roud, lho posse turned
toward Thompklnsvlllo und the jull.
Their horses, moro used to plow gear
than tho saddle, stumbled lastly
through the sand, their drugging hoofs
stirring u eloud of dust which quickly
settled in their wake. Tho dogs, long
eared- good-natured hounds, paced
lumberlngly at the end of a plow-lino,
their toi gues dripping from their long
oiiu.se over lho wire-grass and through
Hie swamp.
Old Bullet, veteran of tho pack,
paused .frequently to reach behind an
ear for a tormenting flea, but the rope
persistently dragged him from his
three remaining feet before ho hud
routed tho enemy,
Behind the dogs rode Columbus
llook", sheriff of Burr County, slouching In his saddle, his three hundred
pounds molting visibly under tlio
Aui'iisi nun. ins imi, a sun-browned
coin' of battored felti Happed unhoedod
aboul liu curs; his faded blue shirt,
uollarloss ami threadbare., strotohod
tight across tho curve of ids swaying
paunch and disappeared Into trousors
cul far loo ocoi Ically for his hulk.
Their  hems  ollmbod  nearer  to  his
knees  wllh   every   lurch of Hie sluuib-
Mnj4 horso, exposing lho coarse It n I Uod
Hocks which  foil  limply over lhe ilusl-
oovorod hrogans, I .nm i look was
longing i<-r lho cool shadow of tic
jail, or ilo- bench bodoatl, the wator-
oak in ibe oourt-houso yard, with perhaps a round al pllohlng horseshoes
when the sun went down. This riding
over rough ground was hot work for a
fal  man.
a rifle was balanced across ihe sheriff's saddla and a ropo run from Uh
p ml,   but   u>>1   lo  lhe collars of the
tired hounds, a doputy hold tholr
leash, but the sheriffs rope led to lhe
neck ut a negro who slouched along
ihe roud, shambling from side t.> side
•w his knees threatened to glvo way,
the sun healing down upon his close-
dropped head, His hands were tied
behind his buck; his tegs shackled with
a bit ot rope which out short his steps
and made a dasb for liberty Impossible
Ills bare fed, slashed in his course
through the cane brake, left  spots of
blend   on   the   sum),     lie   mumbled   itl
oessantly In an unintelligible mono
tone, breaking at intervals into ai
appeal to the posse,
"Don't let 'em kill nie, Marse Lum
I ain't done nut hia'. Don't lot 'em git
me, Marse Lum. I ain't done nuthin'.
Don't let 'em kill me!"
"Keep a-movin' right along. Bud,
They ain't nobody goln' to kill you
liSS'n the Judge says so. You'll bi
safe In Jail less'n no time. Won't he,
boys?"
Thtu sheriff turned heavily in his
saddle to lay the matter before hb
posse. Perhaps he feared tho news of
hi_ capture had preceded him tc
Tliompklnsville. Perhaps some of
Charley I'oynter's kinsfolk would meet
them at tho edge of thc town. That
would be bad for tl* prisoner, but
what could half a dozen men do
againsl a molt'.' The law didn't expect
a sheriff to kill a lot of good people
Just to nave a nigger, when the law
would hang him a month later. That
wouldn't be reasonable.
Cicero Sparks, deputy, rode forward
to tho prisoner's side.
"1 ,ook a -bere, I lud," lie demanded
aggressively, "If you didn't kill Charley
Poynter how como you was runnin'
through the swamp? How come them
dawgs picked up your trail right by
Poy liter's Held and kep' it till they
treed you? llow como you been a-
hldln' out since sun-up? Tell il to mc
Straight, nigger.   Talk up!"
The negro turned on the deputy. Ids
fnce a dirty gray, the sweat of terror
pouring from bis forehead,
"1 done tole you. Murse Cic'ro." he
sobbed, choking uml gulping in frantic
offer! io explain. "I stole or ham f'um
Mis' I'oynter's smoke-house and da's
why ['se hidin' out. ] beers de daWgS
eomln' and I tuck out th'00 de swamp.
Da's why Foe runnin'. Itut I ain't
killed nobody.   Tore God, 1 ain't:"
"Let the nigger alone, Sis," said the
sheriff good-naturedly. "He Uiu tell
that to tho jury, and maybe some of
them Jack-log lawyers kin muke 'em
believe it. p.tn Stalling, seen Poynter
quollln1 with a nigger las' night wh.
he thinks did the killin'. ami hr kin
swear whut her It was Uud nr not
Tiler's the jail in sight and wo ain't
met up with no trouble so fur."
"They'll iie gcthorin' tonight. I reek-
on," said sparks. "I'oynter's got lots
of kin hereabouts. Goln' try to stand
■«ni off. Lum?"
The sheriff spat carefully at a leaf In
the sandy road.
"Shucks!" he protested druwllngly
"They ain't none of these boys goln
take the law In their own hands that-
a-wuy. Anyways, 1 gut u summons I
Jeemetown tonight ami thoy ain't m
wny to git out'n It. Wouldn't do fur
me to Kit mixed up In trouble nohow.
If the boys should take a notion to art
bad. I couldn't hold a mob out'n that
old jail, no way. Uut dont let on to
Mandy. Reckon I've got tn kinder sli|
<iff f'um her."
Ponce di- Leon Hook, OgOd nine, wus
teasing u pointer pup In ttie yard when
.the cavalcade drew rein, but he ubun
doued his yelping pluymato to run ti
the rusty gale. One WOUld never have
thought the weather-beaten brick
house, half hidden In ivy, flanked hv
roses nnd crimson rumblcrs, n ortldl-
shellered by Hs vine-clud veranda, wnfl
the hostile of Burr County. Bul this
was the front view, home of the sheriff
by virtue nf his oiliee. Tho cells, a
double row nf mildewed closets, burred
at their windows, unvcnlllated, Ill-
smelling, formed a wing at the rear.
Tho slumbers of Mrs. Honk were as
often broken by the frenzleH of nn Insane prisoner as hy the shriller walling of Oln'rnl Oglethorpe, youngest
.scion of the house of llook, now BUOk-
- Ing n augur-rag In his cradle and oblivious of the universe.
"Run, Poncy, and tell ynur mumm?
to fetch the keys," shouted the sheriff.
"Got a nigger to lock up ngln his
trial."
It wasn't an artist's model or a
modiste's dream who appeared when
tbo front door opened. Mandy Hook
wus thin ns a rail, her back bent witb
stooping over wash-tub and cradle,
her angular figure as innocent of corset as her tunned cheeks of cosmetics.
Her hulr, drawn lightly ovor her forehead and held Jn pluoo by u celluloid
comb, was beginning lo show gray hoi'Q
and there.
lint lhe eyes Hint peered from bo-
neulh tlie shadowing suiibonnet were
black and sparkling, and tho lips had
i hit of a lum thai betrayed a spark
if humor. She hud lived ten years
wilh Columbus Hook and she needed
il.
Mandy shifted her young-hickory
smitr-siick tn the other corner or her
mouth, smoothed Hm oloan striped
apron Hint ooncoalod a bag-like skirt,
and pushed the pointer off Hie stops
wlib lur broom,
"What's this boy been doln'?" she
askod of her spouse, us he led the way
toward   Ibe cells.
"Ile's 'fused of murdorln' <Ihnrloy
Poynlor duwn ni Pino Top," be explained.   "The dawgs trailed him from
l'oynler',1   cnllnti-puteh,"
."He dotlt   tank  to llie like ll  bad bny,"
commented Mrs.  Moolt.   "Jos' i in-
mon cnttnii-pickin', cuwnAold iilggor.
Nol mo-Q'n lialf-grnwod, ut that. Bul
ynu can'l tell ai < nlggors."
News I ravels lasl in Ibe plnu Woods,
carried liy horsemen going home from
ibe county seal; by swlft-footod
nogroos pausing l" gossip wllh every
ii lend in ibe hlg road. The moon wus
just rising when the riders bognn to
gathor by Ponvy's mill, Just boyond the
eovorod brldgo leading Into the lown.
Lum Hook had saddled his horse ami
ridden uwuy to Jamestown ns twilight
approached, slipping away past the
burn while Mandy wus too busy putting the children lo bed to notice bis
departure,
"(ioi'd-fur-nnihltr hound," she remarked to herself when she missed
him. "He's afeerd to try to keep that
crowd out'n the Jail und afeerd not to.
W■ ll, I aln'l afeerd. They ain't no
uian in Purr County goln' lay linger
on a woman, and they'll shore have
troublo gittin' in here past me."
Sbe took the sheriff's rifle from Its
rack, looked it over In doubt and put
it aside for a double-barreled .shotgun.
"Liable to hit sometbln' with Ihls,"
she remnrked. "Hut I hopes I won't
hfive tn do nn shootin"."
Sbe leaned the gun against lhe wall
and went on knitting a sock while she
mechanically rocked the cradle nnd
crooned ono of the cump-meeting
hymns which had been the lullaby of
generations of Georgia children.
Nearly a hundred men and boys
wero waiting at tho mill now, talking
in little clusters, debating whether it
were lietter to storm the Jail witb a
log as a battering-ram or lure thc
sheriff away with some plea of official
business nnd thus provide him with
a convenient alibi. Some wore masks
of handkerchiefs In which holes for
their eyes had been roughly lorn; ono
had a monster stocking pulled down
over his heud. its foot trailing behind
liko Punchinello's cap; all wore their
hats well over their foreheads. But
there was no attempt to conceal their
identity from one another. All Ihey
desired wns thut the sheriff might
swear. If necessary, thut he had not
recognised a man in lhe mob.
Perhaps half of tbe number were
half-grown boys, following their elders
In the hope of excitement and visibly
nervous, though they talked loudly of
lynehings and the best way to handli
them, They were waiting until the
stores should close and the prayer
meeting In tho little union church
"break up." Then they would do their
work, yell a bit and go home again.
There might he a grand Jury Investigation and a "ringing charge against
lawlessness" from the judge, but nobody would go to jail "just for lynching a nigger."
The voice of the travelling evangelist
across tho river rose in a final appeal
to sinners and died nway. The voice
of the singers reached a shrill crescendo and hushed. One hy one tbe
.lights of the litlle town were extinguished. Soon there was slumber
over Tliompklnsville.
"Time to be movln'i boys." snid n tall
horseman, his black beard straggling
from behind his mask. lOvery man
there knew him ns Amos Wntkins, one
of the bo!'*COlonelS wim had followed
Gordon to the war, cousin to the murdered Poynter. They accepted him as
their leader and began lo mount.
Tbe clutter cf hoofs on tho covered
bridge aroust-* dandy Hook from ber
knitting.
'■Reckon thoy'ro eomln*," she re
marked. "Tenra to be a right smart
paasol of Vm, too."
Mandy blew out her smoking tamp
and went to the window. She could
see tbem sweep Into the quiet road
and halt In front uf the jail. Mosl of
them remained In tbelr saddles, but
half-dozen gave their bridles to others
und  come  briskly down  the walk.
hoavy tint hammered at the door.
"Hello!" yelled the leader. "I.nm
Book I You, I aim! Come out lure.
Want  to seo ynu."
The ntUIBlo of (he shotgun slid
through the window by bis head.
"Git olfn them steps and out'n my
yard!" subl a woman's voice. "You're
seekln' trouble."
Here was a BUrprllO. The lynching
was not going through according to
programme. Why couldn't Sheriff
Hook come out to argue and be overpowered, like u gentleman? But the
half-dozen got off the steps.
"Look a-here, Mandy Hook." shouted one In the foreground. In aggrieved
tones, "you put ihat gun Up 'fore It
goes off anil shoots somebody. We've
come fur that nigger nnd we're goln'
to huve him."
"Come In nnd git him tben, BUI
Illllhronk." retorted Mandy, "Thnt
hnndkercher don't hide them bow legs
of yourn."
Mr. Illtlbrook retired, nbnshed. A
Inugh arose from thc rond.
"It's no use, Mandy," snld Watklns.
"You can't stop us, and you don't
want lo shoot none of us. Wo kin bust
tho door down, easy."
Mandy hesitated, Sho know Watklns' volco and began to four trouble.
Ho hud proved hts courage when be
bad helped the sheriff cat-h the i.-luas-
ley gang, bringing In Iwo dead and flVQ
wounded. Ho wouldn't be bluffed by
a shotgun. She knew, too, that Watklns eould control tho mob, unruly as
It might havo grown. If sho could
handle him, the others would not mutter.
'GU away from that door and 111
como out," she called. .She put aside
hor weapon, lighted tho lnmp ln the
hull, and threw open tho door. For a
moment she faced tho mob In the
moonlight.
1 seo Arne Watklns Is load In' you,"
sho   remarked.     "Well,   1   ain't   afeerd
f Ame Watklns or tho whole klt-and-
bllln' of you. But 1 ain't goln' to hnvo
no mob of menfotku trampln* up my,

lot him come In and gll blm. Does
that suit?"
Lot Ame gll him!" shouted a doson,
11 wus tho cosiest way out of trouble,
"Ann- kin bundle him by blsself."
Mainly closed Hie door when Watklns had entered, dropped Iho bar Into
lis socket uml led the way back to
tho ceils,   The negro, crouching In a
rner and moaning in u delirium of
fenr, sprung to bis feet as tho light
shone in ins oyi i uml stood trembling
againsl   Hie burs.    He knew  Watklns
mice, fnr Hi" leader had enst aside

"Oh, Marso Ame, ynu wotl't let 'cm

beggod. "Yuu knuw mo, Murse Ame,

slid lo the lloor nf tbo cell and begun

"Thar he Is, Amo Watklns," Hald
Mandy. "Just a poor cotton-Held nigger lhat you knows well, 1 don't believe be killed Poynter anyhow, and If

go on nnd take it. Thar he Is. Hut
you can't take him out'n tbls jail. Kill
htm right here and right now."
Watklns looked at her ln amazement, The sheriff's wife took a key
from its ring and tossed it between the
bars. It fell clanging to the floor, beyond the reach of any beside the
prisoner.
"When C'lumbus Hook was 'lected
sherirf, he swore on the Book he'd keep
bis prisoners in jail," she said. "Lum
ain't here, but it falls on me to keep
bis word fur him. If you're 'bilged to
kill tbc nigger, thur he is. You've got
a pistol In your hand. Take It and
shoot him down. He's helpless nnd
waitlnV
"Why, Mandy Hook," returned the
bewildered Watklns, "you dun't 'spect
me to commit murder In cole blood,
like that? Think I'm goln" to stand up
and kill a man what ain't gol no
chance, and him lucked up In a cell?
Open that door. I'm goln' to take him
outside to the boys."
"The key's done past reaehin'," said
Mandy. "Go on nnd do your lynchln'.
Is that nigger uny more helpless In
thai cell than he would be In thnt gang
of wolves waitln' out thar In the road?
Is It any more murder for you to pull
that trigger than pull a rope at the
bridge? If you need a hundred men
nt your back to kill a poor nigger,
you're a heap bigger cowurd than I'd
have fur n man. If you ain't goln' to
do somethln'. git out'n this Jail and
call off them dawgs."
Watklns turned and strode toward
tbe door. As he faced tho mob tn the
moonlight there arose a storm of quos
Huns.   Ho walked on to tbe gate.
"Tliere ain't goin' to be no lynchln'
tonight," he said. "I got good reasons
fur cbangin' my mind."
A murmur of protest broke over the
crowd. Watklns threw his head back
and walked close to Ihe nearest man,
"If any man don't like whnt 1 say,
let blm step out ami tell me about It!"
he challenged ominously. Ono of the
riders twitched his bridle nnd turned
his burse toward the river. Watkin:
watched them all out of sight before
he mounted ami  followed.
A half-hour later tbe sheriff of Burr
County climbed wearily out of his
saddle and turned his tired horse Into
the barn-yard.
"They've done caught the nigger
whut killed Poynter, down to'ards null-
head," he explained to Mrs. Hook.
"They've tuck him to thc city for snfe-
keepln', on the train. Had any trouble,
Mandy?'' be asked.
Mrs. llook looked him over from hat
to toes. He shullled his great feet
nervously on the lloor.
"Mo trouble tn speak of." said Mandy. "You take off tbem squeaky shoes
and go rock Utile Gin'ral Oglethorpe.
1 thiuk he's CUltln' a tooth."

Joan Louis hardly lias two minutes'
rest, lie is ready. A new adversary
stands hefore him. A sinister click of
swords is heard, a parry, a rispost and
then a cry, a sigh, and all is over. A
second body is before Jean Louis,
A third adversary advances. They
want Jean Louis to rest. "I am not
tired," he answers, with a smile.
The signal is given. The Italian is as
lull as the one who lies there a corpse
covered by u military cloak. Uo has
closely watched Jean Louis' play and
thinks he has guessed the secret of ltiu
victories. He multiplies his feints and
Irieks; then, all at once, hounding like
a tiger on his prey, he gives his opponent a terrible thrust in the lower line.
But Jean Louis's sword has parried and
is now deep within hia opponent's
brenst.
What need we to relate any more?
Ten new adversaries followed him, and
the ten fell before Jean Louis amid tLe
excited yells nnd roars of nn army.
At the request of tho Thirty-second
regiment's colonel, who thought tho
lesson sufficient, Jean Louis after much
pressing consented to stop the combat,
and he shook hands with tbo two survivors, applauded by 10,000 men.
From that day fights censed between
French and Halinn soldiers.
This wonderful nnd gigantic combat
might be held as a fable woro not all
the facts above stated still found in thc
archives of the ministry of war.
All those points go to show thai the
copy rnay quite possibly have been
made a good many yours beforo the
Greek script was added.
Old as these documents clearly are,
they contain abundant proof that at an
oven earlier period translation of the
Greek Bible wore in use umong the
Egyptians, The codox at tbo British
Museum Is, in fact, not a direct translation, but a copy of ono whieh already existed. Tbo formation of the
letters, the grammatical forms, und the
polling of certain Greek words adopted by the Egyptian Christians all go to
prove that the three books were Cupled
by lho same diligent scribe.
Dr. Budge, tho edit >r or the '.'■■ptlc
text, stale/ that the codex at the British Muspum appears to be loo small to
hnvo  boen  used  as  a  churoh  service
ik, In all probability lt was intended fur tho uso of some devout person
who wished lo possoss his favorite
port hois of the Scriptures for private
reading, but this latest dlsco\ery from
Egypt proves beyond doubt that certain bonks of the Old ur.d New Teslu-
meiits were In the Ooptb* Laiigua In the
early part of tbo fourth century, and
the origin of tho version itself cannot
be placed Inter than Hie third century.
According to Coptic tradition, the lirsl
Patriarch uf their church was appointed by SI. Murk, who Is said to have
visited Alexandria about the yenr li-t,
and the greater part of tbe early
Christian congregation musl have been
Alexandrian .lews, who would huve
readily utidersluod Greek. Boforo the
end nf tho second century, however,
tho new doclrlne musl have reached all
parls of Egypt and Northern Nubia,
whilst tlm Ethiopian baptized by
Philip must have proclaimed tho Gospel at. Moron beforo lho close of tllO
tlrst century.
In tho third century organized Mon-
OSttclsm was actually established by
St. Anthony, who was born In Upper
Egypt. "When ho was a young man of
about""".!) ho attended a church In his
own village, whero, according to tradition, tho Gospels wero r_ad In a Inn-
guagb "undcrstnmlod of tho people,"
Tho discovery Is held to give convincing confirmation of the old Coptic tradition of lhe Scriptures being ln clr-
-iilatlon ln Upper Egypt In the first
centuries of the ern.
jl¥L
GREATEST DUEL EVER FOUGHT
Tn glvo an idea of what a brave man
can do if he knows fencing thoroughly
end but keeps t I and collected in danger, we will relnte a historical duel. So
extraordinary is this conduit that it
would be held a roinuuce hud it not been
witnessed by a whole army. The hero
is Jean Louis, one of (he great masters
of the sword at the beginning of tho
lasl century, and the duel happened in
Madrid in 1818. He wns the muster nt-
nrms ot thc .'l_d regiment of French infantry. Thi 1st regiment, composed entirely of Italians, formed part of tho
same brignde.
Ifegimeiitnl esprit de corps and rivalries of nationality caused constant qunr-
rels, when BWOrdS wero often whipped
nut ir bullet** exchanged. After a sn nil
battle botween the two factions of the
brigade hnd occurred in tho streets of
Mndrid, in which over 200 French and
Italian soldiers hnd taken part, tho officers of the two regiments, in a council
of war assembled, decided to give such
breaches of order n groat blow and to
re-establish discipline. They declared
that the maslers at-nnns of tho two
regiments involved should take up ttt _•
qunrrel and flght it out.
EXTRAORDINARY BIBLICAL DISCOVERIES
Recent excavations In Egypt have
brought to light many documents _f
extraordinary value and none among
them Is of greater Importance than the
papyrus codex containing the Coptic
texts of throe books of the Blblo. This
priceless volume has been acquired by
tho trustees of thc British Museum aol
for the benefit of students of theology
ond all who are Interested in scriptural
origins its contents have been published In tho form of u hook entitled "Cop-
He Biblical Texts in tho Dialect of
Upper Egypt."
One of the most Important points
rnlsed by the appearance of these documents concerns their date, nnd
though tho question is to some extent
left open, scholars nf the highest eminence havo come to the conclusion that
they form the earliest translation of
any considerable portion of lhe Greek
Bible.
When the volume wns found It was
In an exceedingly dilapidated state.
The leaves had broken away from tha
back of tho cover. Many of them were
torn and all were so brittle that it was
difficult to turn them over without
causing the ink of the letters to fly
off the surface of tho papyrus. Many
of the pages were more or less worm-
eaten while the margins had In several
cases been destroyed by constant use
In ancient times.
Tho codex contains the text of the
greuter of the Book of Deuteronomy,
the Book of Jonah, and nearly the
whole of the Acts of tho Apostles. The
opening pnrt of a short composition
written In a cursive Greek hand. In the
Coptic language, is found on the two
final folios.
To compute with certainty the age nf
codex from a study of the body of
tbe work, wuuld be nn Impossible tnsl:.
'since It is manifestly older than ,\ny
j other Coptic manuscript, but n com*
IpnrlBOn has been made by savants with
a large number of dated Greek papyri.
| and by tbem bus been placed in tin**
i middle of the fourth century of the
i Christian era.
The Biblical books were, tho-ofore
copied at some date not later than the
(year 350, but no conclusive Judgment
can bo given us to the period whi".i
may have elapsed beforo tho addition
nf 'be script was mado.
Tbo cover of the volume also affords
certain assistance in estimating the
antiquity of thc book. One small
piece of vellum, used to strengthen th--*
binding, bears two verses from the
Book of Daniel In Thendotlon's version.
nnd the probable date assigned to ihls
Is the first half of the fourth century.
There nre nlso fifteen fragments of
Greek papyri, tbe writing on which refers to accounts nnd contracts, RitJ
their charncter suggests an origin early
In tho fourth or late In the third century.
LUXURIES   AND   OCEAN   TRAVEL
The many cafes aboard a modern
liner hav ) the atmosphere of the boulevards. Tho old, long baronial bonrd,
presided over by the cnptnln. to which
passengers were summoned by bell or
trumpet, has given way to separate
tables at which one Is free to dine,
lunch or sup alone, at any hour, In any
seat at any one of a hundred small
tables sentlng two, or lo join a party
at n table seating seven, all surrounded
by decorations that rival those of the
best restaurants ashore. And as In
any first class hotel, tho guest Is not
restricted to a table d'hote menu, ami
can order from an epicure's bill of fare
—but on shipboard nil meals nre Included ln the prleo of the passage.
Cafes for those who do not smoke, a
new convenience, have tho air of such
.places In Vienna. Theso nro distinct
j from the open-air vc-unda cafes with
their teukwood tables.
Instead of the salt meats of twenty
years ago, both cabin and steerage passengers have fresh meat daily.
Twenty-eight thousand pounds of moat
and 15,000 litres of beer were consumed
by the passengers of a single North
German Lloyd liner on one ocean voyage, while on the same ship the cost ol
setting the table for a single year was
$4,000,000.
Ah, then, it Is the expense that deters
you? This talk of de luxe accommodations sounds expensive? But vou do
not need to take these expensive
cabins unless you are willing to and
can pay for them. All nf the other
comforts, conveniences nnd luxuries nre
as free to the poorest traveller as to
lo the richest, and not the least Interesting fact about ocean travel Is
that Its eost Is constantly growing less.
The voyage to England now eo3ts on
the best ships about nnlf th_ rate
charged by tho Britannia, '.he flrsr ranU
steamer to cross tho oc?.in, seven***
years ago. One can go first cta-js for
threo cents a mile; second class for
half of that, and third class—with
better accommodation than the best In
the Britannia's day—for about 80 cents
a hundred miles, and these rates Include meals. Compare them with the
standard railroad passenger costs and
meals in lhe dining cars or station eating houses extra.
RIVALS OF THE TERRAPIN
Mississippi River fishermen havo developed a trade in -shipping turtles to
the enst, where they nre sold In competition with the famous terrapin of
tin Baltimore region. Especially during Lent wns the shipping of tho common variety of snapping turtle a prosperous business. A consignment sent
by W, T. Allen to Philadelphia comprised 188 live snapping turtles weighing 1,320 pounds and netted the shipper |150,
Some of them weighed twenty-five
pounds. They were enught in one of
the stagnant sloughs of the Mississippi
about the lirsl of November. At the
Ice forming time In the fall 11 I« the
habit of turtles to seek out some sheltered spot near a bunch of weeds or a
sunken log nnd burrow In the mud beside it until their bodies are about halt
covered and their heads wholly h*.
There Ihey remain until the ice goes
out ln the spring, a score or more of
Ihem sometimes hunched sociably together.
Mr. Allen, one of tho oldest fishermen on the upper river, knowing ihls
custom of the turtles, thought oul a
couple of yenrs ago a simple way of
turning It to profit. After thc Ico In
tbo sloughs Is strong enough to hear
his weight he goes over It. finds the
hnlf burled turtles, breaks through the
Ice, hooks them up through the hole,
slings them Into a sack and takes them
borne to his cellar.
The cellar has n moist sandy floor.
As soon as the turtles nro deposited on
It they burrow In the sand just as they
did In the river mud nnd there remain
torpid through the winter without requiring attention. When tbe price of
turtle flesh reaches high mark Allen
takes them out of their hibernating
quarters, ami he has sold them for ns
high ns IS cents a pound llvo weight.
The turtle Industry on tho upper
Mississippi, though comparatively now,
ts assuming largo proportions.   Every
fish dealer on the river Is making the
buying and selling of turtles part of
bis business nowadays, and the flshor-
meii, Instead of throwing back lnio the
river tbu turtles which get caught in
their nets, as ibey formerly did, are
bunting tbem and saving even the
smallest,
Five varieties ure caught; tho big
snappng turtles, measuring fifteen
Inches across when s nr Id years old;
Ibe suit shelled turtles, which are especially valuable because of the large
amount uf gelatinous mutter they con-
tuin; the so-called terrapin, a small diamond backed turtle nf varied colors,
whicli sells uf lho rate of, $4 and $5 a
lonon, and tho queens and junlettaa,
of about the same size us the terrapin
but of Inferior quality.
Must of them ure shipped to I'liHa-
delpbiu, though New Vurk, Chicago, St,
LoulS and Boston all afford good markets. The price paid by the cistern
buyers runs from Wvu cents a pound in
summer to IH cents In winter. As tho
turtle dress out only nboui one-third,
Ul IS cents live Weight Hie rtl*. BBOd
meal   Is worth  Tel cenls a   pmind.
GOOD LUCK IN HORSESHOES
it is not difficult to understand why
lovers of horsos cume to adopt iho horse*
shoe as u  talisman against   misfortune.
Horses were considered In I s| [ally
liable lo the machinations of witches.
This fact siiiuds out in all lhe records
of the Lancashire witches ami other evil
hags.
If precautions were not taken these
mischievous witches would ride the
louses nt, dead of night over the hills,
uud when lhe owner camo to tie* stable
in the morning he would find his animals in a lather and utterly exhausted.
A horseshoe fnstened over the stable
door was believed to ward off BUCh evil.
There is no superstition more deeply
ingrained in all classes of society than
that which is attached to the,hurse_hoe.
As nu emblem of good fortune it holds
pride of placo, Nelson did not disdain
to nail a horseshoe to the mast of the
Victory. In the early purt of the nineteenth century the horsesnoe ras very
highly prized, and there were few London mansions where it was not displayed, while humbler folks were at great
pains to fasten it over their door..
Horses were not shod either by th-'
Greeks or Romans, The ancient-; wow
content with wraf'piiii.' fibre cloth round
the feet of their horses in cold wt.Mth»*r.
or when it was necessary to pa_s
through miry districts. Instead ai
troubling about horseshoes they dflvo »d
tlieir attention to hardening tbe hoo_»
of their mounts.

NOTES
"Everybody was doing it" at the
refreshment stand.
Not a single accident or a drop of
rain marred the day's outing.
The Vancouver Sun and Province
had representatives on the grounds.
The Free Press furnished one
hundred neat badges for the business
men.
Fred Parker wears a blister very
gracefully on his thumb, lie dished
out the ice cream.
The innritinl loyalty displayed by
the Kloochuiiin during the tug-of-
war was a feature of the event.
J. llillius, secretary of the snorts
committee was an indefatigable
worker in the interests of the merchants picnic.
Dr. Elliott, of Rosedale, was
greeted with u cheer of welcome by
the business men as be joined the
procession with his decorated cur.
The generosity and attractiveness
of the prizes offered during the day
should certainly make a strong appeal for the business men of this
city.
Thc procession was headed by
R. .1. Banford, on horse lack, as
Marshall. Mr. Banford looked the
part and was the right man in the
right place.
The free ice cream cones were a
