Trevor brent lied hard.   All doubt that

Trevor wua un attractive fellow, and
since ho wns to Mlsa Iddleston a celebrated artist he bud only to auy a few
honeyed words uud look at her ln a
melancholy, yearning way to achieve
a complete victory. He was not fool
enough lo give her tbe letters he hnd
written to another woman; tlmt uffnlr
was passed ho fur as any tender feeling wuh concerned-   Instead, he wrote
, letters tu .Mlsa Iddleslou direct. It
wasn't necessary for him to write her,
for he could see her every day. but

Wlmt tie did
A very curious condition existed be
tween Mr. Trevor nnd Mlsa Iddleston
Just before Ihelr separation at the end
■ of the summer Mr. Trevor had treat-
ed her as ti spy nud bud taken means
. to outwit her as such. She considered
him a famous arlist and an hnnornbto

anything remarkable and waa biding
from a woman he feared.
Tben Suddenly her eyes were opened
to the fuel tbut he hnd beeu entirely

friends came lo see ber whom Trevor

most naturally ottrootlVS city in Au*i-
traliu, und tin- most scientifically
built. The foresight ol ita originul
founder, Col. Light, has given umplu
opportunities to as pust und present
municipal rulers to curry out his in*
teution of making A>MuiUo a gulden
city. Col, Light pluntied a city of
straight, wide streets, encircled by
public parks. To-day Adelaide ii a
city of broad straight streets and wide
footpaths, terminating in spacious ornamental squares in every block, and
completely surrounded by a wide belt
of purk lands, the property ol the
people for uil time.
Adelaide's wealthier citizens have
uuHtiutiugly enriched the beautiful
city parks with statues, kiuaks, ro-
tuiulus, rookeries, and httVO froely subscribed towards the extension of the
city's gardens und pluutatiotis. The
mayor is, however, even prouder ol
the diet that the poorer residents wim
ure unable to manifest their public
spirit in this I.um, yet contrive to
help on the public adornment of Ada-
luide in then own wuy. "While our
city is udorucd with parks, squares,
plantations, and gardens on every
aide," hu said, "yet visitors are invar-
lubly struck witli llu* fuct that the
cottages—many uf which ure the pro-
party oi the worker who lives in them
—as well as the larger residences iu
the. metropolitan area, is surrounded
hy handsome ftower*beds." Adelaide's
public reserves total about ii.ixH) acres.
The cily, with ii» stoiiu public build*
iugri uud  numerous Hue churches—
throughout Australia Adelaide il
known as the "cily of churches"—
wide, clean sheets, and statue-dotted
squares, stands in the midst of its
park*. In the lung summer evenings
thousunds of tin- residents of the city
go to the parks by foot or tram. These
lmrks are also largely used for uth*
letlc recreative purposes. Last year
tho City Counoll issued iwt permits
to uthletic clubs to play cricket, foot*
bull, hockey, golf, etc., on their wide,
level spaces.
Linked with the artistic development of the city is ihe equally Important work of scientific hygiene aud
sanitation. This hus received, and il
receiving, its proper share of atteutiou
in Adelaide. The city's sewage system
is practically perfect, and the street
cleaning scientifically carried out. The
City Council recently acquired 4B6
acres of land about six miles front
the city, and on this site a quarter
ot a million is to be expended on a
municipal ubuttoir. Municipal supervision also extends lo a rood and
Drugs Act, and f'JO.OOO has just been
expended by the council on the most
complete municipal baths In Australia. One of the most important of
recent works undertaken by the council Is the construction of a refuse
destructor and tteam disinfectant at
a coit of (1,000,000. The dust nuisance
—perennial problem of all big cities—
if not yet completely abolished, has
been considerably mitigated by tar
paving and oil sprinkling. The letter method has proved so successful
that it ii to be largely extended.
Adelaide is entirely without slums—a
unique feature in a city of more than
SfOO.OOO inhabitants. In its square mile
of city streets, set within the frame
of parks, no patch of hovel habitation,
overcrowded and squid:*!, is to be
found. Wide street succeeds wide
street, but the visitor conies acroi*
none of the dirty, little slums that
disfigure other capital cities. The
population of Adelaide in the metro*
politan area is slightly over 300.000
There are 65 miles of streets in the
city proper, and it is doubtful whether finer roadways could ba found
in any part ol the world.

Flvt Ships Lest.
An Incident occurred recently whieh
is unprecedented in the annals of
Irish shipping. Five schooners which
left Bullinacurra, County Cork, have
foundered at the same time. The
five vessels   left port within   a few

'loss of so many boats at one time.

Kuskiu from her curliest childhood.

"John Uuskiu was adored by botJi
his mother and father, though the
latter did nol always agr.*e with his
political views. I have three chain
which formerly were used iu the
library of Denmark Hill. While writing 'Modern Painters' Uuskin sat in
one of them, while hia pun-lit* used
the two other*. They sat in Uie library while he was working, and when
bo Hidshcd a chapter he would read it
to them for their criticism.
"He was tlieir only child, and
neither of them was you tig when he
was born. Mr. Kuskiu, sr., was engaged to the lady who afterward became his wife nine years before they
were married. He was working to pay
off his lather's debts. He was in affluent circumstances when his sou
was born, and his wealth increased as
time went on.
"It was because he waa reared in
affluent circumstances that so many
people contend that John Ruskin was
arrogant and dictatorial. Iu reality
he was quite the reverse. He wss
not only charming to, grown people, but he was beloved by all Uie
children who ever knew him. His

"My father told ne that even al

her with bitterness, saying her flippant treatment of him had affected his
whole life. She was a beautiful, vivacious girl, and nobody wondered that
he lost his heart to her, -though it

The West Yule Review publishes
the (ollowing rcguriling tbe cun-
Btructlon work o( tho C. N, It.:
"Ths advent ul the Canadian
Nutlicm Ruilwny tu Hupe and Yule
muy not be quite so curly us wuh
unticipated, ur as it wus, iu fuel,
quite recently predicted by Sir
Donald Mann. The railway company, Ihe chie( contracting company
and the various Nul.-contraclni's
have done their work rapidly uud
well, but certain delays were un*
uvoiduble. At present the trucks
extend (mm Port Mann to the intersection of the C. P. 11. trucks
from Mission south tu thc International liiiunilnr.v. Here ndiamond
has to lie installed and until that is
received and in place no (uther pro
gress eastward can is, ninth'. The
dilliculty at Mt. Lehmancaused by
the sliding of a clay lunik has beon
overcome aud the grading is now
pructicully complete. Tbe pile-
driver's wurk is linished near 1Ih|n'.
Thuugh it muy ls> required eastward
luler it cannot Is' hauled any furl her
but will Iw taken back down the
Yule Knud, and, when needed,
shipped over the C. P. K. to Yule
or North Rend. Thc bridge over
the CiKpiihnlla River will lie built
Ibis winter. Whether tlic superstructure will la- wuiiil or Htccl is
not yet decided. T. II. While,
chief engineer on construction of the
line through Itrilisb Columbia,
visited Yule on Wednesday and in-
s|H'cted the work there. On Thursday he came down the river to
llnIK', accompanied by W. K.
Uwyer, divisional engineer, and
spent the afternoon in Hoih' with
L. N. Jenssen, divisional engineer.
A visit wus made to the provincial
government bridge over the Coqui-
liullu. Mr. White admired the
substantial piers and remarked that
he might wish to secure the services
o( the same workmen when they ure
available. To the Review Mr.
White said tlmt lie was quite satis-
tied with the progress being made.
He could not fix s date (or the arrival ol the tracks at Hope, that
still depended upon tlic delivery of
the diamond at Mission. Nor
could he suite whether a freight
service would be inaugurated from
thc coast eastward as tracks are laid.
He remarked: "We have no place
to ship from yet, except Port
Maun." On the subject ot other
lines Mr. Whits was leu reticent.
He hu been familiar with railway
building in British Columbia since
1876,when he joined the engineering
stall of the C. P.R. He knows all tbe
many routes tried then before the
He is of opinion that a connecting
line Irom Nicola to Hope by way o(
the Coquihalla will soon be built. But
am ,1 tier road of .van greater importance, which lie (orstes, is south westerly Irom Fort George, across the
Chilcotin plains, snd down to Bute
Inlet. From there he sees no difficulty
(or a car-terrv service across to Frederick Bay on Vancouver Island, and
a short line across to QuatsinoSnund,
one of the finest harbors nnd the
nearest to the ports of ths Orient on
the whole Pacific coa.t of north
America. Mr.Wh'ts left for Vancouver Thursday night, Mr. Owycr
returning to Yale."

The Odd Fellows of Victoria, have
planned a splendid structure for the
order. Tho property ou whicli it
is proposed to erect the huilding is
situated on the north Hide of View
Street it short distance above the Y.
M. Ci A. building, and consist-* of
two full-sized lots whicli were secured by the Odd Fellows some years
ago, when it became apparent that
with the growth of the order in
that city the present premises on
Douglas Street would prove inadequate. The structure will be three
storeys in height and cost in the
neiKhborhood uf 81-10,000.
The coal'strikc in southern British
Columbia and Alberta, nml lusting
about eight mouths, has been settled
and the mines will soon lie running
at full capacity. A fuel shortage ou
the prairies during the coming win-
tor is feared.
An empty stomach is most susceptible to poison; the head, in like
condition, is a safe harbor fur evil.

everybody rose.
Afterwards Mr. McNutt asked s local mun why the man who hud kept

"He's not opposed." was the answer. "He's one of tbe most enthusiastic grain growers of this section."

An' Mary Carmtchael, an' Me.
Tins quartette uf Maries was chosen
for her us playmates by tha Queen

The historian attribute* the choice, as
regards the name, to thc fact that in
the Gospels four Maries are often BS*
sociuted with thc Mother of our Lord.
Hut this is a fur-fetched idea, says a
writer in Tha Weekly Scotsman.
Most likely the Quoen-Mother simply
conceived the pretty notion of having

herself. These (our Maries all went

He possesses unusual qualifications

qualities, as well u< (ur purely business ability.
As these are duties which the average business man knows little enough

well pleased to leave the principal de.
ktils in Mr. Hadrill's charge.
That Ihe Montreal Board of Trade is

lays himself out tu entertain the newcomer. Tbey stroll about town In

stranger Invariably pays the score, has
a lordly disdain of money; good fellowship la Its own reward.
Tbe two stroll by devious ways ontll

lying on the pavement. lie pnuses to
examine It. lt Is a miniature globe
about tha alto of a billiard ball. The
stranger turns lt over curiously In bla
fingers and finally sees that lt Is lilted
with a amalt plug, which comes uut
under pressure. Continuing his explorations, he then unscrews the top
of the plug, takes out o piece of crumpled paper, shows his dupe the empty
box and throws tbo paper on the
ground. There is a similar bit of paper In the small chamber nt the end
of tbe plug, but this tbe countryman
does not see. The two then stroll on,
discussing tbe mysterious ball.
Presently lliov cone upon a worried
looking man, who Is studying tbe
ground with a ftce tbo pattern of despair. Tbe roper observes blm and
wants to know whether be baa lost
some thing.
"Lost something. Indeed!" says tbe
man. "Why, I've lost an Invention of
