thiit this expression was not that of
a man bent on mere thievery, it had
more depth and evil satisfaction, it
was the look of a man who turns a

"Vuu know I'm frightened, und you're throwing a bluff. You'ro a fool not

more normally otieo again, as his courage gullied its second wind.
Sa.s.ui was fonclng for time. Incidentally, ho was learning profusely
uboul the revolution nf tomorrow, but
nothing nf the revolution of yesterday.
"I neither know, nor want to know,

said, shortly. "Moreover, if ynu think
I'm bent nn vengeance, .vmi sire a

Rodman laughed satirically.

He- start is ihat I've -,-nt a fancy for

The man's voice gathered vehemence

A sudden Idea struck Saxon. This
might In- the cue to draw on the

"Whal do you want mc to believe

with au assumption of the cold incredulity that seemed expected of him.
The other spoke eagerly,

Then, I wns released, nnd you arrested.

Saxon felt that, until he had learned
the full story, In* must remain lbo acini*. Accordingly, ho allowed himself a

"You think I'm lying,    It sounds ton

Through iho blttornoss of conviction,
it  part of Saxon's brain seemed to be
looking on impersonally ami marveling, almosl with amiisoiueiil, at the remarkable position In whieh he found
himself. Hero stood a uian before him
wllh it pistol pressed close to bis chest,
threatening    oxecutlon,    denouncing,
OUTS Ing, yet all the while giving evidence of terror, almost pleading wltb
his victim to believe his story! It was
tho armed man who was frightened,
wlio dreaded tlic tie! he declared he
wns nbout to commit, And, ns Saxon
stood listening, it dawned upon him. In
the despair of tho moment, that it was
a matter of small concern to himself
whether or not lbo other fired. The
story he had heard had already done
the injury. The bullet would be less
cruel.   .   .   .,   Rodman went on:
"1 bent every effort to saving you,
but Williams bad confessed. He was
frightened. It was ids Ilrst experience.
He didn't know of my connection wilh
tho thlny. So help mo Ood, that is the
true version."
The story sickened Saxon, coming to
him ;is it did iu ;i form lie could no
longer disbelieve. Ho raised bis hands
despairingly. At hist, he hoard the
other's voice again,
"When the scrap ended, and yon

weapon und stood fingering its trigger,
the filibuster drew himself up really
with dignity. He stretched out both
empty hands, and shrugged bis shoulders.
(To he continued)

vision of the subject was wide  and

how wealth and resources of earth
yielded themselves all down thc

how nbsoulely necessary it is that
these great sources of wealth and
prosperity must be controlled and
properly distributed by men of
strong moral stamina, in order that
the true nnd lnsting growth nnd
development of Canada may lie assured. Canada has many advantages, and is a veritable mine of
of wealth, but great and necessary

In between these two days it Is mostly winter.
Spring Ims I n doing this for years
without any variation of programme,
and for the same length of time we
bave deluded ourselves with tbe idea
tbat it was a beautiful season of tho
year that might be long or short, according tu our luck.
Upon further reflection, this error
seems to be pnrt of o general self-
deception about the seasons, due, perhaps, to our tendency to generalize
from particular Instances and colo'* remembrance from a single experience.

for us "the terrible winter of 1006."
Just as the summer we tried to row
from the pier to the lighthouse with
our strenuous nephew who Is on the
freshman crew becomes "the awfully
hot summer of 190S."
Sr. it Is wiili spring. Perhaps to nil

springing grass and bird notes when wi
walked with one, the touch of whose
dress caused a thrilling sensation ui

"Are they?" And ever afterward for

Out of his duor three blocks from
the plaza in the beautiful city of Mor-
eMit went Barbaro in haste. He wns
strong and broad, of the servant class,
Halting before Gil, the cobbler, who
sat at his bench sume distance awuy,
he seemed to be held by Gil's prying
eye. "When one gets along badly with
one's wife," snld he, looking tragic uml
aghast, "one had better leave." Having thus justified himself he disappeared into the muny-streeted future.
In tlie poor little rented room from
whieh he hud escaped snt bis wife,
Martina, with two children; nntl Gil
came prying about, wondering how
mnny weeks he hnd best wait till he
ran off wllh her, or took her withoui
running off. Martina wus calm and
Indifferent.   "God wills," snld she.

she ran round the comer to see where

Lulsa's aunl was coming; the mother

Heboid, a naked child! Ills llesh crept
and he went down on Ids knees shuk-

while tbe littio thing lay peaceful. Ho
culled forth all his powers, shut his
eyes,  put   In  his hands, and  lifted  It
out. He hid 11 on a ehair in tho dark;
and now, us though some supernatural
thing had como tu haunt him, there
broke out on the stillness an infant's
wail, Barbaro, who had risen to his
feet, tottered. From lhat it cume—
that—that! His hands had touched it,
his eyes had seen it dead. And now
how wildly it wiis shrieking!
The maid gabbled out. Jjiiisa, with
gasps, sought to raise herself and
could not. "Barbarol Barbarol" she
cried.   "It is alive!"
"Si, senora," muttered he,  frozen.
"Barbarol    Give It to mc!"
"Ki, senora," snUl he, thickly, uud

"Give ii io in.' now! I want it

Then It was that the emotion of
Harbaro, roused to double strength by
Martina's  Indifference, broke out;   he

Surely, thought Barbaro, that picture must win .Martina, yet felt within   blm  a   perverse hope that   It  might

she turned to him anil said: "God hud

the basis nf old blue's historical interest.
Its other elements of attraction lies
In Its decorative quality. Although

Lafayette," ten inches in diameter, is
valued at $20, ami one specimen can be
had for $1_ because it is chipped and

would have been a fair price for this
plate ia good condition, The "Landing

tial in every good collection of old blue
and is a good one to employ as a test of
market conditions. It came out in 1824
as a souvenir of Gen. Lafayette's visit
to America, and the picture was taken
from Battery Park when the uld Castle

A pair of Lafayette plates five ami a

in diameter are worth from $10 to $15,
Another favorite Is ttie " 1'ittsficl.i

price at present for a perfect nine-
Inch plate, while ten years ago a ten-
inch soup plate, with the same pattern
was sold at private sale for *M0. This
design must have appeared subsequent
ly to 1883, the year ia which the fence
shown around the tree was erected to
prevent its further use as n hitching

Kvery collector of Staffordshire

subjects with a border giving the names
of fifteen states in a series of festoons.
A medallion of Washington and female

are always in evidence in the design. A

Ail nmiisiiie strain marks the selection of the American views liy the Brit

Joseph    Stiibhs  was  one of  the  loss

iis ;i substitute for mahogany, it is
dark, reddish-brown, somewhat resembling true mahogany, ami although
exceedingly hard wbeu flrsl cut it is
easily worked until thoroughly seasoned, when only the lines! edged tools
have any effect on Its Hint-like surface.
The wood is susceptible of a beautiful
polish, ami when thoroughly seasoned
shrinks and warps very little, It Is su
heavy that It sinks rapidly in water,
and will remain immersed for many
years without being affected in the
least. Sharp pointed nails can be
driven into the wood only about an
Inch. S-apote door frames in the ruins
uf Uxmal in Yucatan are us perfect tunny as wben Ilrst placed in position.
The zapote tree Is of a very slow
growth, requiring* 4(1 tu 50 years to at
tain the average height nf ::0 feet. The
average zapoto will square from 5 to s
Inches, and occasionally two feet. Tht
trees thrive best on high, rolling lund
and although they are found un thr
lowlands tbey nre Inferior In both sap
und wood. Continuous tapping dues
not appear tu have a seriously delrl
mental effect, provided the Incisions
are not too deep. The magnificent
.trees are rapidly disappearing, how
ever, because operators are taking n
precautions to protect them from th
destructive methods of the chlclerOE
laborers, who cut the trees so deep that
they generally die. Trees are known
to hnve been tapped fnr twenty-llv
years, but after that time produced
only from hnlf a pound lo _ pounds of
sap. If allowed lo resl live or six
yeurs they will produce from ,1 to ">
pounds. Trees tapped for the lirst
time will produce from \~, to _r, pounds
of gum or sap. according to size. In
order tn produce 25 pounds a tree
would hnve to square about _ feet and
be from 25 tu 30 feet high.
The chicle industry extends frum
Tuxpam as far as tbe oxlreme southern
portion nf Yucatan, which produces
the largest yield, hul in quality the
gum is inferior to that obtained from
the Tuxpam district. The latter gum
commands a higher price iu the United
States, to which It Is almost exclusively shipped.
Quantity nml quality nf imports of
chicle Into tbe United Slates from 1901
to 1910, Inclusive, are as follows:
Year. Pounds. Value
1901     3,140,768  $753,696

The chicle   season   npens   curly   in
September, though lhe yield at this
lime is often limited, owing to tho
frequent rains wblcb retard the chle-
leros in tbelr work. The rainy season
Is favorable to an abundant flow nf
sup, provided |t is not prolonged beyond October, lu which cuse sap would
contain a larger proportion nf wuter.
ami the loss in condensation would be
heavy and Hie product Inferior.
The prut-ess nf extracting the sap is
primitive. Opon Y-shaped Incisions
ire made iu Uie tree trunks. At the
base of encb tree n palm or other
nproprlnte loaf Is fastened, which acts
as a leader or gutter frum which the
ble drips Intu the receptacle placed
receive It, Tbe sap as It Hows into
the Incisions is a beautiful whii-, bus
the consistency of light cream, but ns
it runs down it gradually becomes
more VISCOUS, until, as it drops into the
receiving receptacle, it is of the density
if heavy treacle. When the receptacle
Is Riled It Is emptied into u large imn
kettle    nml     boiled     to    evnpotule    llie
wnler. which amounts In nbout 25 per
cent, uf the sup. As Uie boiling progresses  tiie chicle thickens, nml  when
it has reached the propor consistency
ll Is kneaded (n ex true I more of the
water content,  and Is then shaped  by
band Into rough, unovsn loaves weigh"
lug r, io 80 pounds, if carefully cook*
mi it is of ii whitish-groy shado; if
•arelessly   handled   ami   Improperly
boiled II is nf u dirty dark grey. When
prepared with extra care It is of a
lighl pinkish color. The sap freshly
ixtraoted will weigh ubout 7 tn s
pounds to the gallon. It is very adhesive, and Is extensively employed for
repairing broken articles and fastening
leather tips to billiard cues.
Two Somewhat unusual transportation systems nre to be found at Los
Angeles, Cab, a trackless trolley and
three incline railways which lead to
Various hilly sectlnns. The trackless
trolley Is subl in be the only une of Its
kind in the country and consists of tho
regular overhead wires, hut no tracks,
ihe cars running on tbe ordinary
street paving. The ears are entirely
different from the regulation street
ear; in fad, lhe first to be installed
was a rebuilt automobile, equipped
wiih th.- proper electrical apparatus
ami two overhead rods to connect with
lhe wires. The two ears in use at the
present time resemble an omnibus,
laclty of sixteen passengers
furnished With a steering
that used nn autos. They
a* winding luad known as
myon connecting a newly

' car lines. Tlie road is nnly
es  long,  bul   is  so  winding
.■]  hi
opened t

iiml steep that it was considered more
economical io avoid the use of tracks,
and this is nf considerable advantage
io ihe automobile traffic along that
road. The .ars turn out readily in
avoid passing vehicles ami nre a complete success. Tlie lure is ten cents.
nnd lhe expenses nre light, only lhe
driver being required for u car.
The incline railroads an- sllll shorter,
Two of them  run from  Un- business
district tn ih tjaeeiii heights known
as "Hunker's lllll." u thickly settled
npnrtmont house district. Tb.- distance is only one block, but ih.- grade
is very steep. The fare is only one
ceni fm- commuters, Ave cents for a
single fare, or three persons in i parts
I'm* leu cents. Some of iii.- hotels on
the bill give tickets in their patrons.
These roads operate by n cable whhh
draws the cars to lhe top <>f the in-
cine, olectric pow.r being u-v-d for
driving ihe cable. There is but one
track, wilh a "turn out" in the middle
where the ascending and
ars    pass.      One     man
of the cour
operates the two cars from a station
at the top, and also receives the tares,
A feature of these roads is < rest pavilion, free to Um public, and .in observation tower, which are appreciated hy tourists. The company t? said
to pay un exceedingly high rate of interest on the Investment.
The third of the incline railways,
and the latest to be installed, was built
to connect a newly opened real estate
tract on Mt. Washington wtth the
regular trolley fine. It is about a
quarter of a mil.- Imn:. but .*rh*-rw.-<e-
resembles the short incline in the centre nf the town.
