On Thursday lust the growing
town of Rosedale received u visit
from the members of Damon Lodge,
K of P, Chilliwuek, and n good time
was spent by all who attended tbe
meeting in the llrnitbwaite Hull.
Several automobiles journeyed early
in the evening, and the scene around
the Hotel soon became one of animation. The lirst auto, of course, hud
tbe privilege of clearing the roud of
obstacles, the only obstruction bowever, being un idle Hook of sheep.
One of the wnywurd animals deliberately commited Buioid; by trying t..
prevent the rotation nf one of lhe
wheels, and its owner wns offered
the price of the mutton by nne of
the "lioys" in the cur, au offer
which was generously refused, showing the kindly spirit in which the
visitors wore received. A representative crowd assembled in the Hnll,

of the meeting, called on Bro. .Inn.
It.sbinson Deputy Grand Chancellor,

ranks third in the list of Fraternal
organizations, although one nf the
youngest orders. Mr. C. Munro
extended the hand.of wolcomo to
the visitors expressing the wish thai
these visits could be arranged more
frequently.   Itev. II. .1.Douglas uud
Rev. A. K.Roberts had been expected but were unavoidably detained.
The luncheon which followed nt the
local Hotel, reflected great credit on
thc catering abilities of the Hostess,
Mrs. C. Homers, and the spread was
something not to be easily forgotten
by those fortunate enough to be
present. After the usual Royal
toasts, came the toast to Ihe" Knights
of Pythias," Bro J. llammar responding in a free and easy style
which was readily appreciated by
thc lifty mon seated at the tables.
"Tho Ladies," brought a gracious
and apt response from Mr. C.Munro

To Develop Oil, Gas, Coal
Local Men Anxious to Develop the
Chilliwack Field.   Would be
Big Boom (or Valley.

pros] Is in the vnlley nre   making
u lllllll n|i|sciil tu the people of tin
vnlley this week, through It circular
issued und a copy uf lhe agreement
ns mado between the local men mid
the Colonial Oil Co. Sume Hi.ihki
shares huve been sulisrrilieil, but us
the lime is now shorl for raising the
balance nil whu wish to see this development wurk proceed and will
buck up thnl. wish bv a practical
support shnuhl not delay the matter
As we have before stated, men coin
potent to know state Ihnl oil, gns
mul coal do   exist   here.    There is
but one method of determining the
■quantity mid that is by drilling,mil
in a superficial wny hut thoroughly.
The plan of operations is on a scale
large enough to settle the question,
thftterms of agreement as to the local
money put in to the scheme and the
expenditure looks very fair und
reasonal ilo, so that the present would
appear lo Ise a very opportune time
for the peoplo of the valley to throw
their energies into the development
of these resources, whicli if found in
paying quantities, would mean greater wealth producing activities, than
could be the cuse with any othor line
of development, oil, coal und gus
hnve mado mure millions in shorter
time thuu any other resource. Oil
is the greatest because nf its ever increasing uses in so many lines of
manufacture. Besides the marketing value of oil, gas and COttl, which
wilh the splendid shipping facilities
and nearness tn tlie center of demand, would he uf untold value,
there ure the benefits to be derived
locally from the use of these. Gus
for instance would lie carried through
the valley for lighting and heating
and become a convenience, even in a
domestic wny, which would Ihi of
much importance, whilo from a
manufacturing and industrial standpoint, tlie use uf any or all would
assume magnificent importance.
With the proven fact that these resources nre here in profitable quantities property will be greatly enhanced, uud altogether the valley would)
in addition to the presenl productiveness, become a center of wealth producing activity such us cullld ssiily
result frum the development of these
three important resources. The
committee asks nil to give lhe matter
consideration, mul if it is thuught
that the results which would attend
tho finding of nny or all  uf  these
minerals here in paying proportions
ars. worth while, in put a shoulder
to lhe wheol in effort tn have the
Hold tested by the Colonial Oil Co.,
which shows its faith in the same hy
putting up $60,000 of its funds lor
the purpose. If oil, gas nr coal lies
beneath uur foot it is .if no value until it is brnught tn the siirfnce, and il
is not likely to leave its confines and
seek the light of day, without assistance. If it is worth having it is
worth going after.

'i'he man raised hla bi'ows in challenged astonishment,!
"It's ih*1 oho thing I inlHK in his pictures, bocauso It's the ono thing l moat

talking more rapidly ns hm- enthusiasm
gatherod headway, "A man's ploturoa

Snxon felt his heart leap, ll was
something to Know that she holloved
liiH aanvasaoa re (loo tod o quality of
strongth inherent to himself,
"You nnd your muster." alio wonl
on, "nro unlike In everything oxcept

Insanity, Whon J was In Paris, everybody wiih raving about some m-w pictures froni IiIh hriiHh but only his

where he had been for years."
"For the.man," he acceded, "I hnvo

nfter something t didn't know just

when 1 snw it, 1 wanted to go out to
thc Metropolitan entrance, and shout
Eureka up and down Fifth Avenue.
It told me what I'd been reaching
through the darkness of my novitiate
to grasp, It Beemed to me that art hnd
been revealed to me, Somehow," the
man added, his voln- falling suddenly
from its enthused pitch to n dead, low
one, "everything that comes to mo
seems to come by revelation!"
Into Duskn's eyes came quick light
nf sympathy, He had halted before
ner, and now she arose Impulsively,
nnd laid a light hand for a moment on
his arm.
"I understand," she agreed. "J think
thnt for most iirtlstn to come us close
as you have come would be triumph
enough, but you—" she looked at him
n moment with warmth of confidence
—"you can do a great deal more," So
ended her tirst lesson in the independence of nrt, leaving the pupil's heart
beating more quickly than at its commencement
In ttie days that followed, as May
gave way to June nnd the dogwood
blossoms dropped and withered to be
supplanted by (lowering locust trees,
.Snxon confessed to himself that he
hud lost the tlrst battle of the campaign. II" hnd resolved that tills close
companionship should be platonlcally
hedged about; that he would never allow himself to cross tho frontier that
divided the realm of friendship from
the hazardous territory Of love. Then,
as tin* cool, unperfumed beauty o_ the
dogwood wns forgotten for the sense-*
steeping  fragrance of  tho  locust  he
knew that he wns only trying to deceive
himself. Ue hnd really crossed this
forbidden frontier when lie passed
through the gate thut separated the
grandstand nt Churchill Downs from
the duli-house hit-Insure. With the
realization came the resolution of silence.    He was a man whose life might
at any moment renew itself tn untoward developments. Until he could
drag  the  truth  from   the  sphinx  thnt
guarded his secret his love must be
as tnartfculnte as was his sphinx. He
spent harrowing afternoons alone, nnd
-wore with mnny solemn oaths thnt he
would n**ver divulge his feelings, uml.
when lu* sought ubout for the most
sacred and binding of vows, he swore
by his love for Duska.
Because of these things, he sometimes shocked and startled her with
sporadic demonstrations of the brus-
querle into which he withdrew when
ho felt too potential an Impulse urg-
Ing him to the other extreme. And she.
imi understanding It, yet felt that
there was some riddle behind it ull.
it pained mul puisled her. but sit. accepted It without resentment—belying
her customary autocracy. While she
hud never none into the confessional
of her heart us he had done, these
matters sometimes had the power of
making hor very miserable.
His happiest achievements resulted
from sketching trips taken to points
she knew In the hills. He hud called
her a dryad when she first appeared
in the woods, and he hnd been right,
for she knew all the twisting paths

"Thore is somotliing," she said slowly "that yon never oiiught hefore;

For n moment, the girl slood silent,

of a jutting root, then slipped quietly

With u Hhort, gasping exclamation,
the girl bent forward and seized both

In her eyes, only a few inches from

hack ot thut lu the depths of the pupils

could feel the soft play of her breath

The man clambered hack to the

For a time neither Hpoke. Each.

As in* began packing the Impedimenta, storm-pregnant clouds rolled
swiftly forth over the valley, nnd emptied themselves in n deluge on the two
wunderers. The girl, riding under
dripping tr-es. hor poncho nnd "nor'-

He did not realize that  ho had re-
peato. the lines alnud, until she turned
her fueo nnd spoke with something
nearer to bitterness thun he had ever
heard in her voice:
"Bode i" be crowned—did you say'.'"
And she laughed unhappily.
For moro than a week after the ride
to the cliff, Dusku withdrew herself
from tho orbit In which Snxon revolved, uml the man, feeling thut she
wished to dismiss htm. In part at lensl,
used the "air line" much less frequently thun in the days that hud been.
Once when Steele had left tho cabin
early to dine at the "big house," Snxon
protested that ho must stay und writ'
letters. He slipped awuy, however,
in the summer starlight, und took ono
of the canoes from the boat-house on
the river. He drovo thc light craft
us nolselesHly nnd gloomily ns a funeral barge ulong the shadow of the
bunk. Iho victim of utter misery, and
his blackness of mood was intensified
when he snw u second cunoo puss In
mid-channel, und recognized Steele's
tenor in the drifting strains of a sen
tl men tal song. There was no moon,
and the river wus only u black mirror
for tho stars. The tree-grown banks
were blacker fringes or shadow, but
he could muke out a slender figure
wielding the stern paddle with un easy
grace which he know was Uuska's.
His sentiment wus in no wise jealousy,
but It wus in every wise honrt-hun-
When they did meet she wuh cordial

Eastern agent tor exhibition and sale,
ami he wished lo include several of
the landscapes he had painted since
his arrival at the cabin. Finding creative work impossible, he devoted himself to thnt touching up nnd varnishing which is largely mechanical, and
made frequent trips lo town for the
selection of frames.    --
So much of his time hnd been spent
at Horton House Hint unbroken absence would huve been noticeable. His
visits were, however, rarer, nnd on one
occasion Mrs. Horton made an announcement which lie found decidedly
st nrt I ing.
"I have been wanting to take a trip
io Cuba early in tho full, and possibly
go on to Venezuela whore some old
friends ure iu tho diplomatic service,"
she said, "but Mr. Horton pleads business, und 1 can't persuade Duska to
go with me."
I ,\t once, Steele hud taken up the
project with enthusiasm, asking to be
admitted to the parly and beginning
nn outline of plnns.
Snxon found himself shuddering at
the Idea of the girl's going to the const
where perhaps lie himself had a criminal record. He hud procrastinated
loo long. Ilo hud secretly planned his
own trip of self-Investigation for a
time when the equatorial heat had begun to abate lis midsummer ferocity.
Hut the Blrl's answer in part reassured him.
"It doesn't -appeal, Aunty. Why not
get the Longmores? They are always
ready io bo louring. They've exhausted tho Far East, nnd nre weeping for
now worlds." ■
Snxon went back early thut night,
and once more trnmped the woods.
Steele lingered, and later, while tho
WhippoorwlllS were calling and a small

For a moment, sho hesitated in silence,  and  th*-  mun  bent  forward.
"I shouldn't huve asked that, Dusku
I don't ask it," ho hastened to amend,
"Whetber   there   Is  a   new  reason  or

Again, ahe shook her head,
•i guess there's no way anyone can

Back al tho cabin, Steele found his
guest moodily pacing tin \. raudnh.
Tb" glow of his plpo bowl wus a point
of red against tho black, ,_£he Kentucklan dropped Into a chair, and for
it time neither spoke.
At  last. Steele snld Slowly:
"Bob, I huve just asked Dusku if I
hud n chance."
Th** other man wheeled In n_tuitl_n-
ment. Steele had Indeed maintained
his Plutonic pose so well that the other
hnd not suspected the fin* under what
te   believed to bo an extlncl  cmtor,
I If own feeling hud been ill  thing
he had not confided. They hud never
spoken to each other of Duska In
terms of love.
"Yon!" ho said, dully. "I didn't
know   "
Steele rose.   With  IiIh hand on tho
door-knob, he paused,
"Hob." ho said, "tho answer wus the
old one. It's also been 'No.' I've hnd
ni) * hancoi of course, t really knew
It nil the while, and yet 1 bad to ask
once more. I shan't ask again, It
hurts her nnd I wunt to se her happy." Do turned nnd went In, closing
the door bohtnd him.
i nm Duska wus far from happy, how-
over much Steele umi othecH might
wish to sec her so. Sho spent much
tlmo lu solitary rides and walks, Sho
knew now thut she loved Snxon, und
she knew that he hud shown In every
wordless way that ho loved her, yet
could she he mlHtnUen? Would he ever
gpoak, since he had not spoken nt the
cliff? Her own eyes had held a declaration, and she had read In hla
Hint he understood the message. His
silence at that time must be taken to
moan silence for all time.
Snxon had reached his conclusion,
lie know thnt he hnd hurt hor pride,
had rejected his opportunity. Hut thnt
might be a trunHlent Brief for her. For
him It would of eourBo be permanent.
Men may love nt twenty, and recover
and love itBuin, even to thc number of
muny times, but to live to the age
which he guessed his years would total, and then love us he did, wus irremediable, For juat thut reason, he
must remain silent, and must go nway.
To enter hor life by the gate she aeemed
willing to open for him would mean
the taking into thut sacred Inclosure
of every hideous possibility that clouded his own future. He must not enter
the gate, nnd, lu order to he sure that
ii second mad Impulse would not drive
him through It, he must put distance
botween himself and tho gate,
(in one point, he temporized, He
wus eager to ilo ono piece of work that
should be his masterpiece, Tho greatest achievement of his art life musl
be lur portrait, He wanted to paint
it, not in the conventional evening-
gown In which she seemed it young
queen nmong women, but lu the environment thut he liked to Ihlnk wus
her own by divine right, lt wuh the
dryad Hint he sought to put on canvas.
He asked her witb so much genuine
pleading In his voice thut she smilingly consented, nnd the sittings begun In
the old-fashioned garden ul Hot-ton
House. She wuh posed under a sprend
of branches nml in such a position Hint
the sun struck down through lho
leaves- kissing into color her cheeks
and eyes and hair. It was u pose thut

If ho succeeded iu getting mi his canvas what he felt, would give u result
whereon lu* might well rest Ills reputation, Bul to him It mount more than
Just ihul. for it wns giving expression
to what ho saw through his love of art
and his nrt of love.
The hours given to the lirsl sittings
were silent hours, imt that was not
remarkable. Saxon always worked in
silenee, though there wore times whon
ho painted with gritted teeth because
of thoughts he rend in the fnce he
was studying- thoughts which the
model did not know her fnce revealed.
At times, Mrs. Horton sat In the shade
near by, and watched the hand thnt
nursed Ilu* cunvas with its brush, the
Steady, bare forearm that needed uo
mahl-Stick for support and the eyes
that were narrowed to silts as he
studied his tones and wide as he painted. Sometimes. Steele lingered near
with a novel which ho road aloud, but
it happened that In the final sittings
thero wns no one aove painter nnd
It was now lute iii July, and the
canvas hud begun to lake form with
a miraculous quality and glow. Perhaps, tbe man himself did not realize
that he (oiilil never again paint such
a port rnl t. or any landscape thnt
would be comparable with it. .Some
men wrlto love-letters thut an* wonderful heart documents, but they write
them in black mid white, with words.
Saxon wan not only writing a love-
letter, but wuh painting ull that tits*
resolve did not let him say. He wus
putting Into ihe work pent-up love of
such force thut it wus almost bursting
Ills heart. Here on canvas an through
some wonderful Hufely-vnlvc. he was
passionately converting it all into ihe
vivid eloquence of color.
It had been his fancy, since tho
picture had become something more
than a strong, preliminary sketch, that
Duska should not see it until lt neared
completion, und she, wishing to have
hor Impression one unspoiled by foretastes, hud assented to the idea. Bach
duy nfter the posing ended,,and while
ho rested nnd let her rest, the fnce of
the canvas was covered with another
which was blank. Finally enmc the
time to ask her opinion. The afternoon light hnd begun In change wilh
the hint of lengthening shadows. The
outdoor world wus aglow with gracious weal hor and the air hud the
wonderful, almost pathetic softness
that sometimes comes to Kentucky for
a few days In July, bringing, ns it
seems, u fragment strayed out of In-
dluti Summer nud lost In the mid-heat
of the yenr.
Tho man stood hack ami covered
tho portrait, then, when the girl hnd
sen ted herself before the easel, ho
steppeil forward, und laid his hand on
the covering. He hesitated a moment,
and his lingers on the blank canvas
trembled. Ho was unveiling the effort
of his lifo, nnd to him she was the
world. If he hud failed 1 Thon, with
u deft movement, he lifted the concealing Canvas, nnd waited.
For a moment, lhe girl looked wilh
bated breath, then something between
n groan and n stifled cry escaped hor.
she turned hsr oyos to him. nml rose
Unsteadily from hor sent. Her bands
went to her broust, and she wavered
ns though she would fall. Saxon was
at her side In a moment, ami, OA ho
supported hor. ho felt her nrm tremble.
"Arc you 111?" he nsked, In a frightened volco.
She shook her head, aud smiled. She
had rend tho love-letters, and she had
read, too, what silence must cunt him,
»>ther persons might see only wonderful art In the portrait, but she hiiw nil
tho rest, nnd, because she saw It, silence scemotl futile.
"It Is a miracle!" she whispered.
The man stood for u moment nt her

With "ii exclamation thai stood for
the  breaking of nil  the dykes  he  had
lieen    building    nnd    fortifying    nnd
strengthening    through    the    past
months, ho closed his arms nround hor,
und crushed bor to him.
For n moment, lu* was oblivious of
every lesser thing. The past, the future hud no existence, only the pro-
sent wns alive and vital nnd In lovo.
There wns no world but the gardon,
und thnt wus Hooded with tho sun
und lho light of love. The present
could not conceivably give wny to other
times before or nfter. lt wus like the
hills thnt looked down—unchangeable
to the ond of things!
Nothing else could count—could mutter. The human heart nnd human
brain could not harbor meaner
thoughts. She loved him. She waa ln
hlH arms, therefore his arms circled
the universe. Her breath wna on hia
fnce, und life wuh good.
Then enmc the shuck of realisation,
His sphinx rose before him—not n
sphinx that kept the secrets of forty
dead centuries, imt one thnt hold In
cryptic silence all the future. He
could not offer a love tainted with such
peril without explaining how tulntcd it
was.   Now, ho must tell her everything.
"I love you," he found himself repeating over ami over; "I love you."    .
He heard her voice, through Hinging
"I love you. | have never said lhat
to anyone elso-nevor until now. And,"
she nddod proudly, "t shall never any

In his heart rose a torrent of rebellion. To toll hor now—to poison

why nil the other wonderful women
and nil the other wonderful loves from

egotism of the moment, "thut I might

And so the resolve lo be silent was
east awny. und after it went the sudden resolve to toll everything. Snxon.
feeling only triumph, did not roullzo

Steele met them, and handed his friend

had dined. it bore the stamp of a
South  American  Republic,
It was not until ho hnd gone to his
room that night thnt tin* man hud

he lore open the envelope, und road
this message:

H. s. n."
A  short   time  ago,  Hnxon   had   felt
stronger than all the forces of fate.
He hud believed that circumstances
WOW pi stlc and mnn invincible. Now.
us he bent forward In his chnlr. the
South American letter hanging in limp
lingers ami the coal-oil lamp on thc
table throwing Uh circle of light on the
foreign postmark and stamp of the
envelope, he realized thnt the buttle
was on. The forces of which lie had
been contemptuous were to engage him
nt oneo, with no breathing spnee before the combat. Viewing It nil In this
light he felt the qualms of a genernl
whn encounters an aggressive enemy
before his lliu* Is drawn and his battle-
front arranged.
II*- had so entirety persuaded himself
thnt hts duty wus clear nnd that he
must not Speak to the Birl of love that
now, when he had done so, his entire
plan of campaign must be revised, nnd
new problems must bo considered.
When he hud been swept nwny nn the
lide that had curried him to an avowal.
II had been with the vngue sense of
realisation that If he spoke ut all, he
must lell Ihe whole story. He hnd not
done ho, nml now came a new ques-
tf : Hnd he the right lo toll Hie itory
until, In so fur aa possible, he hnd
probed Its mystery? Suppose his worst
fears proved themselves. The certainty
would be lillle hnrder to confess thnn
the presumption and the suspense.
Suppose, on lhe other hand, tho flght-
Ing chance to which every mun clings
should, nfler nil. acquit him? Would It
not be needless cruelty to Inflict on her
tho feurs thnt hurried his own
thoughts? Must he not try Ilrst lo
nrm himself wllh a definite report for.
or against himself?
After nil, ho nrgucil wenkly, or perhaps It wns the devil's ndvoeato that
whispered ih.. insidious counsel, thore
might be a mistake The mnn of
I'lhero's story might still be somo one
else. Uv had never fell the Instincts of
murder. Surely, he hud not been the
embezzler, tin- llherltie. the nssnsHln!
But, in nnswer lo that argument his
colder logic contended there might
have been to his prcKcnt Dr. Jokyll n
Mr. llydo of (he past. Thc letter he
hold   In his   band   of  course   meant
nolhlng more Ihun that Klbero had
talked to some oue. It. might be merely the fault of somo Idle gossip in u
Latin-American cufe, when the claret
(lowed too freely. The writer, this unknown "U.S.It," hud probably taken
Rlbero's testimony at Its face value.
Then, out of the page arose Insistently
lho one sentence thut did mean something more, tho new link In a chain of
definite conclusion. "Since you beat 11
to God's country and wont, west—"
That, was the now evidence this anonymous witness hnd contributed. He
had certainly gone west!
Assuredly, he must go to South
America, und prosecute himself. To
do this meunt to thrust himself Into u
situation that held a hundred chances,
but there was no oue elae who could
determine It for him. It wns not merely
u mutter uf collecting nnd sifting evidence. It wna also a test of subjecting
his dormant memory to the stimulus of
placo and Bights and sounds and
smells. When he stood at the spot
where Carter had faced hlB executioners, surely, if he wert! Curler, he would
awaken to self-recognition. He would
slip nway on somo pretext, and try out
the Issue und then, when he spoke to
Du Kit, ho could speak In definite
terms, And If he wero the culprit?
The question came back us surely aa
the po.dulum swings to the bottom of
the ure, utul rested ut the hldeouH conviction (hut he must be tho malefactor.
Then, Snxon  rose and  paced the lloor,
his hand convulsively crushing the
lell    lulo a crumpled wnd.
Well,   he   would   not   ■ ollle   hack!        If
lhat were his world, be would not reenter 11. He wuh willing to try himself io be his own proseoutor, tint, if
(he thing spelled u sonton tf disgrace, bo rosorvod the right to be nlso
his own executioner.
Then, the ilcvll'H advocate ngnln
whispered seductively Into his per

have ihe right lo feci certain that IiIh

Would he not be justified in dismissing
the fear of a future awakening, and, as
Steele had suggested. Ill going forward
In the person of Roberl A. Snxon,
abandoning the past uh completely as
he had perhaps abandoned previous in-
carna tions?
So, for the time, he stilled his fears,
and under his brush the canvases became more wonderful thnn they hnd
ever been. He had Duska at his side,
uot only in the old intimacy, but in
the new and more wonderful intimacy
that had come of her acknowledged
love. He would finish the half-dozen
pictures needed to complete the consignment for the Eastern nnd European
exhibits, then he would start or. his
A Yeek later Snxon took Duska to a
dance at the club-house on the top of
one of the hills of the ridge, and, tiftcr
she hnd tired of dnnclng, they had gone
to u point where the brow of the knob
run out to u Jutting promontory of
rock, 't was a cape In the dim sea of
night mist which hung upon, and
shrouded, the tints below. Beyond tho
reaches Of silver gray, the more distant hills rose in mystic shadow-
shapes of deep cobalt There were
stars overhead, but they were pale In
the whiter light of the moon, and all the
world wns pninted. as the moon will
paint It. In silvers nnd blues.
Buck of them waa the softened waits-

and the bright patches of color where

As they talked, ihe man felt with renewed force that lhe girl hnd given him

who gives but once, and gives all without stint or reserve. It waa as
though she had presented htm unconditionally with the key to the archives
of her heart, nnd mnde him possessor
of the unspent wealth of all the Incas.
Suddenly he realized that his plan of
leaving her without explanation, on a
iineni that might permit no return, was
meeting her gift with half-confidence
and deception. What he did with himself now, ho did with her property.
He was not at liberty to uct without
her full understanding und sympathy

of Infinite brutality.
He must tell her everything, and
then go. He struck nt match for bin

stirring breeze, the miniature glnr*» fell
on her delicately chiseled tips and nose

To tell her now would he like spoiling

the products which we depend on occidental farmers to supply us with. And,
side by side with this largo increase ia
the price of the products last mentioned, we have to note the fact that, so
far as Canada is concerned, there has
been—and coincident with it in point
uf time- -a very large increase also in
the populations of our cities. In fact,
this latter increase is so marked that
today the number of our city dwellers is
unite disproportionate*—if one has regard to the fact that Canada seems destined for a mainly agricultural community—to that uf niTr rural population.
These two" factors in the situation un*
intimately correlated. Tor there is
something more than coincidence-there
is the working of the inexorable law of

With the Horses
The horse hill for the Cana.linn West
for mil through Winnipeg was a littl"
over $7,000,000, and the hulk of tins
money went to Ontario, though tliere
was betwoeu four and five thousand
head of draft horses brought in from
the United States. These figures, of
course, take no account of horses
brought in with settlers' effects.
Though this hill looks enormous, it is ai,
improvomenl on that of 1010, when th *
west spent over $10,000,000 for horses,
There  has   been  A  good  deal  of conjci
lure that  the decline in the number 0 '
horses from 33,000 head in 1010 to 20
Him   h !   iu   1011   was  due   lo  th.    ii
creased number of agricultural tractor.-*
used, ihe horse-power of the agricultui
I tractors sold being roughly  100,000,
While there  is  im doubt   that   the sale
if agricultural traitors lufs meant tlieir
KIDStItUting horses ou some farms, the
H(Terence between the numbers of IP10
and 1011 is not wholly accounted for in
that wav. The difference was consider*
nblv made up by the number of western
horses for sale'. 1011 brought ou thfl
mnrkol practically the first large crop
of heavy horses which the west has pro
ducod. Manitoba shipped many hundreds of liead west to Saskatchewan
nml Alberta, the district of Brnn.lot*
alone accounting for 1,800 horses. There
are now a siiiib-ient number of horses
fur sale iu Southern Saskatchewan to
warrant a series of co-operative horso
sales, the first of which wits held during
tlle   hist   week   of  January,   wlleli   gold*
ings nnd mares, sold Individually, ran
from $2*J"i to $300 each, uud tennis front

Some idea of the profit In raising
horses may lie gathered from these figures, furnished to mo by one of tin
horso  lam-lies, -nul  that  by  no  means
oi f the largest.   Six yeurs ago this
loinpauy took an inventory of their
linisi's, ami made up the value to $•(.•"),-
nun. Today their books show that tho
natural increase of these horses 1ms
brought the value of their present stock
on the ranch up to $75,000. The number of pure-bred stallions of heuvv
breeds is now roughly 1.000 for tho
throe provinces) and nearly ono-Imlf of
theso are iu .Manitoba, which is at presold our largest horse-breeding province,
though Saskatchewan is running a very
.■lose second.
The foregoing is roughly an outline
of the present conditions of the live
stock industry iu Manitoba, ami, to
some extent, the whole west. The figures show that wo have paid out it very
large amount of money, namely- over
$8,000,000 fnr foodstuffs and- horse
power, that it would seem to many wo
might have produced ourselves. It is
rather a fad uf those whn are enthusiasts iu live stoik raising, tn berate
.soundly the western fu liners for uul
having gone mon; fully into stuck raising: and on this subject Ilu- western
farmer is very much in the position of
thfl woman with tllO lurge family, who.
being left a widow, was nsked by her
rector if she had received any advice
ns to what she should do for the fullire,
utul whu replied tartly that she had
hud su much advice thai, if il had been
greens, she could have stocked a shop.
There is no doubt Mini the wcsl hns nul
raised as much stock as il. should have
done, but tin* crit i*'s should bear in mind
Ihul, like nil new countrios thai ure
easily nccossiblo for   agriculture,    tho
wesl /lias received ll   very huge  nunilici'
of Immigrants who have never farmed
in their lives before. The richness nf
the soil hus cnuhlc.l these people, wilh
\cry iinlilVereiil farming, to raise crops,
frequently onorniously profitable crops;
but they' have no knowlodgo uf stock
raising, ami siune of those who hnvo
gone into ii failed ou lhal account.
Again, it is natural in nny new countr**
to follow the liiu> of lea*-"i resistance.
Even tlie Alps have made concessions to the exigencies of luxurious
travel, for before the summer is over
the tourist will be able to ascend the
Jungfrau by rail and elevator. The
first 13,432 feet are to be accomplished
by the funicular; then an elevator will
take passengers the remaining 210 feet
to the summit. Needless to sny that this
journey's end will be crowned with further ease-taking appliances—there is to
be un electric kitchen and well-covered
lounging couches, mil telescopes to view
the scenery.
Still, it is deemed that the ense with
which some tourists will now be enabled
to climb the Jungfrau will serve, in
other cases, to inspire the climb on foot.
Hut these ambitious ones may safely
wait for July and August. However, a
year ago hist Master the Jungfrau was
ascended, partly on skis, by nine persons; the Finstoraarhom ordinary
route—by seven; the Gross Fleschoi
horn by twelve; while the Aletschorii,

Bunsoft drew a few dentil's-heads and
erossbonos on ibe wet table, presumably under Uie impression that the'
prophets spoke through his lank foro-

scenes for Williston Philander Potter,
his traducer. The latter at tbe moment stood at the fur side of the ruom
trying to give the bar iis loving an
embrace as bis short arms and glrthy
thickness would permit.
Surveying   with
but   artistic  prophe
-malicious glance at his corpulent de
famer, the Bonehead snarled:
"Yes, sir,  I did all  that,  Gold,  but

The Bonehead was right about the
roll. Williston Philander Potter was
generally regarded by the citizens of
Lucky Lode as a sort of itinerant mint.
He announced himself as anxious to
buy a mine or develop a prospect, but
he had heretofore insisted on purchasing at a ratio of about four cents on
the dollar, with good will of tbe seller

"Well, It sure surpasseth all understanding, but 1 do believe that Bolie-
head runt has struck It again."
The speaker. Smiley Pete, gazed from
his plnce at the Gold Nugget bur to
Where Alchemar Ajnx Bunson sat in
the fur corner of the saloon, Intently
examining some ore specimens scattered on (he table before him.
The Gold Nugget wns Lucky Lode's
most pretentious palace of iniquity,
ami nightly the representative element
gathered therein to gulp, gamble und
gossip.     It   wns   three   days   since  the
Bonehead luul unbosomed his frazzled
soul to me and predicted dollar calamity for w. Philander, whoso great bulk,
while Smiley Pctc.«Jfoko, was enmped
al my side, taking op space at (be bar

"Hlruck II again, you nay. Grlnny?"
Hiked   Poller,   who   persisted   ill   iiccu-
mulatlng    unpopularity    by    calling
every mnn out of his name, "What
makes you think so?"
"Think so!" answered Pele, bis
amiable nature overlooking the reconstructed nickname. "I know so. I'm
fully aware of Ihe devious bypaths
of ibiM* Bonehead's character, lle'a
been gone for three days. He ambles
in au hour ago, eschews nil stimulants
and he's been over there ever since,
holding a post-mortem on a parcel of
rocks. Take II from me, when Bunson
walks nround liquid refreshment wllh
sightless eyes It's because he's stuck
his pick Into pay dlrl and sees yellow."
"lias be often bit II rlghl?" queries
Potior, ually cavorting to his doom.
"Hull, well, I should snicker to retort!" Interrupts Bert Ibe Bunk from
his place on Ibe skirmlsh-llne of Im-
tlbers. "Thai person of the pelrllled

"Hut he's that guileless he don't

to relinquish bis place, iu the word

for a few pesos and a talking-machine,

be annexes the name of Bonehead. He

manner,   "whose   seat  of  reason   lies
In his pick and shovel and whose in

enough to wobble over to where the

"Well, Idle curiosity keeps Arizona

thc Bonehead, some mollified, "but as
I've Hied on th' claim, it'o no secret
that It's over on th' Blue bill trail,
right this side o' tb' Sphinx bend."
"I'ui going io Blrdsoyc in the morning," says the eager Poller, "and I'll
be over that road In the afternoon. I'll
call around and see your prospect. I'm
a mine expert, you know, and maybe
1 can help you with information. Good
samples  you've  gol   there!"
"Fair—just fair," mumbled Alchemar; "hut my prospect, as you call it,

"Pretly Salleen? Is that what you
call It?" asked Potter rather derisively. "Must be named after some sweetheart. You savages nut here are always calling your holes In the ground
after the girl you left behind."
"Jitat a bit of sentiment," yawned
the Bonehead, getting up from the
table nnd gathering his rocks together.
"It's about all that's loft of us—sulphuric acid fer whisky, Jerked leather
fer meat, sentiment nn' a long memory!"
The emphasis on the last two words

Alchemar Ajax pulled a canvas
sample-sack from his pocket, dumped
Ilu* orq Into the bag, tied an address
tag to the gathering string, walked
over to the bar and addressed the dispenser of liquid destruction:

I'd like them assayers V perform an

During tbe next week W. Phllnmier
Potter, mine expert, fluttered like a
deranged hen around Bonehead and
the Pretty Salleen. Alchemar Ajax
was always on the job, but Potter
never found him working the prospect.
The Bonehead had dug and blasted a
ten-foot tunnel Into lhe face of the
bill, hut there the proceedings had been
adjourned. The prospector explained
to the fat easterner that he was constitutionally opposed to frivolous labor,
that be had done ail necessnry to hold
thc mineral fights nnd would work no
more on what he only suspected to bo
a mine.
Such times as the Bonehead resorted
to Lucky Lode and the Gold Nugget
saloon to rejuvenate his flagging soul
with the firewater that would have
burned a hole In an ashestos log he
wns chary of Information concerning
the Pretty Salleen, and was usually to
be found In some out-of-the-way corner, gazing fondly nt a piece of qunrtz
and grinning like a locoed Ynqtii.
On the morning of lhe seventh day
Potter, looking across lhe Nugget bar
at a teller stuck In the frame of a
mirror, said lo lhe bartender!
"Isn't that some mall for the Bone-
bend person up at Ibe Pretty Salleen,
as be calls it? I'm going up there ami

"Yep," replied Jack, lhe drlnk-
sllnger. " 'Alchemar Ajax Bunson.'
them's the hlgh-snuntlln' words there-
which translated spells Bonehead.
H's from them Blsbee assayers. Reck-
Hi' gentleman with the vitrified
pcak'll be right glad I' bear from Ihem
Ibere mineral clairvoyants."
And Jack tossed the letter to tbe
horrible example of fatly degeneration
of the heart, walling to take It up the
Blneblll trnll tn Bunson.
Potter found tbe prospector silting
outside Ibe temporary shack ho hnd
thrown together near the perforation
in the ample bosom of the Sphinx
Hend. As usunl, labor on the Pretty
Salleen appeared lo have boon adjourned sine die and ad Inllnltum. Instead of getting ore on to a dump, Bunson wns devoting his entire nltentlon
lo teaching a mangy and fleabitten
coyote cub the wisdom of acquiring
boiled Rait horse by the hind-leg begging process rather than the sneaking
soeond-stnry methods hnbltunl to tbe
coyote blood.
Bonehead grabbed the letter, In hts
eagerness Heading the tub amidships
and squashing a bowl out of the beast
that mlghl have been heard in Birds-
eye. Nervously Im tore it open, and
his trembling lingers played around a
twitching mouth as be read the report
twice through. Then be foldod the
document and put it in the lm-dde
pocket uf a worn khaki coal lying on
the ground.
"Do tbe ruck dupeslers send good
word?" asked W. Philander, his manner showing Hint was about all he had
ridden ten miles to ascertain.
"Tolerable to mlddlln'," answered
the Bonehead, as he got up and
Btretched himself to almost five feet
five. "About what 1 was expect in'.
Just to lem ble--just fairisli  like."
Bunson picked up the coat by ono
sleeve, dragging the garment after
him, and disappeared through the door
of the shack, adding as he went:
"I'm goln' t' get my guns. 1 heud
a Hcrceehin' an' a scratch in' up th'
gulch there a while ago -some outlawed bobcal likely. If you'l' wait a
few minutes till I stick it few sinkers

A moment Inter the Bonehead, rifle
lu hand and pet coyote at bis heels,
Vanished up the gulch, and Puller,
from bis soap-box seal, noticed something white on the ground where Ihe
coal had been. Tbe letter from the
assayers bad fallen from tbe pocket.
Careless Bonehead!
The mine hunter picked it up aud
drew out the folded shoot. What be
read caused him to thaw in his breath
lu little sucking gasps like the exhaust
of an overworked tea-kettle:

One hundred and forty-seven fifty

had tapped the main pipe to the United
States Treasury!
W. Philander Potter gazed for a long
live minutes at the paper in his hand.
Hearing a scrambling up the gulch,
he quickly folded it, replaced It In the
envelope and flipped It to where it had
been dropped by the thoughtless prospector.
"Well. I'm ready to start," said Bunson as be emerged from behind a
boulder. "Didn't find trace of a live
thing. Guess the varmint, whatever It
was, Is over In th" next township by
now. Gosh! here's that there assay

"Glad I found it. 1 wanted t' show it

"Yes, you must have dropped it,"
mumbled Potter, laboriously climbing
onto his protesting pony. "You're careless with your papers, Bonehead."
"I'h'huh: reckon I need one o' them

And the Bonehead chained the coyote to tlie wall tif the shock within
striking distance of food and water,
closed the door and swung ln beside
the beefy cargo that threatened to
leave the grunting pony sway-bneked
fore ver more.
The nexl afternoon the watchful
Potter noted another letter from thc
Blsbee assayers, addressed to Alchemar Ajax Bunson, conspicuously dec-
oritlng the mirror behind the Gold
Nugget bar.
His fingers Itched to get hold of it,
for It must be the report on the deeper
samples of tho Pretty Salleen, but
thore seemed no chance. The Bonehead was still in Lucky Lode, pnstim-
Ing with lhe roulette pitfnt! and absorbing snake antidote.
Bunson gave It out that Fortune was
no longer smiling at him, but was actually guffawing; wherefore bo was Inclined to be lavish with his money so
long as be had any In stock.
In another hour thc letter bad disappeared. And that night Potter
found the addlepated prospector at the
rickety table In tho Fnshloii drlnkery,
apparently In the communicative nnd
onfldentlal stage of inebriation.
"When are you going up to the
Pretty Salleen?" asked Potter, whose
mind seemed to revolve In circles
around the ten-fool hole In the Sphinx
"No* fer quite sbpell." replied the
Bonehead In a volco as thick us the
brenkfast mush tin* Noble House cook

did not dnre to tip Ids hand, well
knowing the Instinctive suspicion that
lurks ln the SOUl of u drunken miner.
"Leave dny af t'morrow. Got f go.

Tho Bonehead fumbled In his pocket
and pulled oul u packet of papers, He
spread them on the tablo nnd opened
one that proved to be a crude map.
Then he continued:

"Why don't you sell one of your
prospects and work the other?" asked
Potter, noting the second letter from
the assayers among the bunch lying
scattered out  upon the table.
"Nope," hiccoughed the Bonehead, as
he. downed a- whisky bought by Potter, which extravagance had broken
tbe hitter's record in Lucky Lode. "Sol'

The Bonohoad tottered to Ills tool
and giddily assembled bis papers. One
of tbem fluttered unnoticed to the floor
as the prospector, tacking like a yacht,
headed for the Gobi Nugget saloon.
Potter watched the plain drunk hit

It was the second report from the as-

It was too good to give up. Potter
folded the document away in a leather

The Bonehead's anticipations of further debauch evidently miscarried, for
the next afternoon he was sober as a
prayer-meeting and appeared to be as
busy as a bobtalled pony in fly-time.
Potter, throwing enutinn to the
winds, openly rode herd on Bunson and
finnlly corraled him In the general
store, where he waa investing in bacon,
flour, beans and other articles of virtu.
Potter rushed to a clinch Instanter.
"Say, Bunson, what will you take
for your Pretty Salleen prospect?"
"Oh, so it's Bunson, Is it?" retorted
the Bonehead, all his animosity returning ns he seemed to forget bis forgiving mood of the previous night.
"Since when did Ihem ribald Jests
about bonehead an" buttons an' th'
dice stop gettln' a laugh? Better make
it twenty pounds o' hacon, Joe, I'm
gone fer some shift.this time."
"I'm talking man to man now, Bunson, and not dealing In nicknames,"
Potter replied. "Whnt will you take
for the Salleen?"
"Why don't, you make an offer fer
th' Queen Anne?" the prospector answered. "I know more about it—a
couple o' cans o' chilli. Joe—than I do
about the Pretty Salleen. I could figure
better. No, ten pounds o' beans Ml be
enough, Joe; I'm no army."
"1 wouldn't take the Queen Anne as
a gift," declared the fat bargainer. "It's
too far away—too long a haul. I'll give
you five thousand cash for the Pretty
"Got any condensed extract o' cow,
Joey? Make it about three cans." Bunson wns paying more nttentlon to the
man across tbe counter thnn to the one
at bis elhow. "Look here. Potter, I'm
not plnyin' penny ante. The Pretty
Snlleen Is either a mine or just an
nchln' void. If it's a mine it's worth
money; if It's a void In a hill It's null.
See? Any mine thnt's a mine brings
me more thnn five thousand. Y' may
recall that I broke my eye-teeth on th'

An' y' want to shout quick, 'cause I'm

"Fifty thousand dollars!" yelped
Potter. "Well. I have heen flattering

the miner, Ignoring the Insult Then,

Poller declined tn consider tbe Queen
Anne and Bunson coaxed to urge him.
but they argued and wrangled for halt
an hour while the miner continued lo
purchase and pay for provender. The
deal was only agreed upon when Bunson was on the point of departing for
the mountains,   potter, seeing nothing
else to do, was compelled tn come to
the Bonehead's figure. Those two assays - $147.r»n and $2,11.80 a ton—were
too much!
-.Rven at the wind-up. Bunson threal-
neil to squabble nil negotiations by Insisting on spot ensh. Ho declared he
knew nothing of bnnks, checks or
drafts, and the only way be would deal
wns on pay-on-the-nnll basis—real
money lhat he could deposit In the
Gold Nugget safe and whieh only

the Nugget resort.
Fifty thousand in gold and currency
passed lo Bonehead, and the Pretty
Salleen became the property of Wil-
llston Philander Pol tec. Whereupon
Alchemar Ajax Bunson turned his back
on the lonesome trails and the friendly
mountain rat and abandoned himself
to a care-free and butterfly existence.
Two weeks later a muss of hulking
humanity—upwards of two-hundred
und fifty pounds thereof -pitched and
tossed into the Fashion saloon. The
mass much resembled a blood-sweating hippopotamus; inflamed eyes protruded from the face; the veins stuod
out on the forehead like double knots
In a wet lariat, and from one fat hand
a document waved like a futile signal
of distress. It was \V. Philander Potter. He spluttered like a energetic fuse
uud appeared midway between fatal
apoplexy and terrific explosion.
Ho teetered to tho bar, where a small
red-haired man was creating work for
unemployed eastern distillers by purchasing drinks for Lucky Lode so
rapidly thai a drought loomed on the
"Look Inie y,m Bunson see thla'.''
cried Poller ns he I urned the little
man around from the bar and shook
tho paper in his freckled face.    "It's
from   Sehurmer   .vi   Godley   at   Blsbee.
Understand? It's the report un samples
sent down last week from the Pretty
Salleen. Read It—you! Gold nothing'
Silver nothing: Lead trace! How
about It? Talk to me—don't stand
there grinning like a gargoyle!"
"How about It?" snapped Alchemar
Ajax, pushing the Irate fat man from
blm and getting his meager back
against tbe bar. "What do I know
about It? Don't read me your epistle:*.
I don't want tu be bothered list'nin'
to th' love-letters of a lollop."
"But it's the assay from the Pretty
Salleen tbnt you sold me! No sold, no
silver, no nothing!"
And if sume one had cut th# rope.
Potter would have written a new page
in aeronautic history.
"Weil, I'm glad ynu had an a-}_ay before you spent any money nn development work; that's always th1 -af.st
plan. I'd almost decided to blow _
few dollars myself thataway when yuu
bought me out." *said the Bonehead
with a vigorous nod of approval.
"You'd almost decided—You'd—-Wh—
what about those two repwrta—the on**

"Oh. now you enlighten too." ami
Bunson's lean paw tried to hide ■_
smile. "So ynu found 'em. did you.' t
wondered what became of that last
"Of course l found th*-m, you ifery -

"Well, now, [ wondered about "aa:

"It's a bunc—a con game." wl.:**.! W
Philander, thrashing his arma like a
striving windmill, "Its a ^wmdl**' Tho
Pretty Salleen! Fifty thousand dollar**
for a name—and ynu -"aid it was i -lit

"Oh. that name.'* apologetically explained the Bonehead. 'Y*-». ;-'**s I

"No. you th* salt; K's y.v-r:'. ooc

As he turned to the bar. a: i-emar

The general public ha« supposed that
the thumb print system   is   something
new  that  scientists  have devised  for
purposes of Identification-   Such,   how
ever, seems not tn be the case     Investigation   has  revealed  tre  faet   that   the
system originated with these f'hibese.
Por hundreds, perhaps  thou*aii'is, of
years tin* merchants of China haw ued
Impreutoni Of their thumbs  in lieu of
signatures. To thi*- day in the interior
of Chinn the thumb print it used oa
legal documents) especially wills, in
place of the written name.
The use of finger prints was transferred from China to India, when tbe
British ndopied tbe system m b means
of Identifying the native troop-. From
thnt the custom became general in tho
British military wrvlce, nol only in
lu.Iin. but throughout the United Kingdom.
It was introduced In the poll le-
pnrt incuts of Brent Britain by army
officers, wlu* returned from foreign Mr*
> to tuke position in the poli.-e head
quarters. It** use has become universal
in the British Empire so much so that
ry mini or woman who has ever been
in the custody of the police has his finger prints on lile in the department.
The finger print remrds of Scotland
Yard are ihe most complete of any in
the world,
Wc huve complicated our cutlery in
these -lays, an.l knives nnd forks are
necessary even on the picnic cround. It
is not easy to ply the knife nnd fork as
vou sit upon the ground with the food
between your lees,    But there is the
logla  attitude--for   men.    You   have
ut to sit and pass the knife under the
right lee *11*'- fork over the left.   It will
be rotnfnrtuhlc nnd polite.    You can't
put the knife to the mouth.
