Wesley Scouts Return From Camp.
The Wesley Troop of Boy Scouts
returned on Monday from camp at
Cultus Lake, where eleven days
were silent under canvas anil amidst
tho beaulios of the lake and woodland for which tiiis. popular resort
is noted. Tho Senilis found it difficult to follow lhe regulation pro-
grain for Scout work, the preparation of tho meals requiring considerable of tllO time. The daily routine
started at 7 a.m., with a plunge in
the lake which most of tho boys
took advantage of. Flag saluting
and prayers proceeded preparation
of-the breakfast. Tracking, treasure
hunting or signaling occupied
the time until noon hour. The
afternoons were sjient in swiiuing,
a very peasant exercise, and althlctic
games of various kinds followed by
the camp lire assembly at
which stories, jokes etc., wbiled
away tbe time until 9 or 9.30 when
the Scouts indulged in rest, repose
and quit dreams until the morning
call awakened them to a realization
of the joys of camp life, and thus
the days of the annual camp rolled
by all too soon for the members and
officers of the Troop. There were
no accidents, tbe weather was fair
and there was no sickness, except a
trace of home sickness now and
again. The boys are grateful to
Mr. Eckert for conveying them to
camp and to Mr. Evans for tranport
ation home, also for the thoughtful-
ness of many in seuding'or bringing
supplies for the needs of the camp.
Thc camp was in charge of Scoutmaster W. Abbott and Asst. Scoutmaster C. A. Woodworth, who are
highly pleased with the conduct of
boys and tlie success of the camp

Wc have recently opened an office

of under-draining their land.
Wc have one of the celebrated
"Buckeye" Traction Ditcher
Machines in Chilliwack now. This
machine was working here last
spring nnd every one who had any
work done hy it scorned perfectly
Well satisfied.
This machine will dig a trench
11'j inches wide and any depth up
to 4 let 9 inches. The machine is
capable of digging lhe trench absolutely to grade, which is first laid out
by us with a surveyor's level. The
ditch is loft absolutely clean mid
ready for the tile or cedar box-drains
to he laid.
We are in a |iosition to contract
cither for thc digging alone or for

prices will he found to lie less tbun
the cost of hand-digging besides being done more quickly and leaving

There was a large crowd present

satisfy the most sensitive housewife.

said Steele, firmly, He had fallen

affaire, Mrs. Horton, distressed in
Duska's distress, found herself helpless to net except upon his direction,
The girl nodded, apathetically.
'•It doesn't matter," she said.
Then, she looked up again,
"Uut I want yen to slay. I wnnt you
to <Im everything you can for both of
them.*' She paused, and her next
words were spoken with an effort:
"And I d*n't want I don't wnnt yuu
tu speak of mo. i don't want you to

"He will ciuostlon im." demurred

from tfie turmoil of the station, frum
the strenuous labor of weighing trunks,
locating the compartment ln the train.
subsidizing the guards, and, hardest uf
all, saying good-bye to Duska with n
seeming ur normal cheerfulness, Steele
found himself Irritably out of measure
with the quick-step of Paris. Mrs,
Hurtun aud the girl were on their way
to the Riviera, lie was left behind to
watch results; almost, it seemed to
him, to sit by and observe the postmortem on every hope In the lives of
three people, Nice should sttll be
quiet. The tidal wave of "trippers"
would not for :i little while sweep over
Its rose-covered slopes and white
beaches and dazzling esplanades, and
the place wuuld afford the girl at least
every soothing Influence that nature
could offer. That would not be much,
but it wuuld be something.
As for himself, he felt the Isolation of
Paris. On a desert, a man may become
lonely; in deep forests nnd on high
mountains, he may come to know and
hate his own soul in solitude, but the
last note of aloofness, of utter exile, is
that which comes lo him who looks
vainly for one face in a sea of other
faces, whose small cosmos lies in unwept and unnoticed ruin in the midst
of a giant city that moves along its
Indifferent way to tho time of dance-
music. In the hotel, there was lhe
chatter uf tuurists. His own tongue
was prattled by men and women whoso
lives seemed to revolve around the
shops of the Rue de la i'aix, or whose
literature was the information of the
guide-books, lie felt that everyone
was invading his somborness of mood
with trivialities, until, in revulsion
against the whole stage-setting of
things, he had himself and his luggage
transported to the Hotel Voltaire,
where the life about him was the simpler life of the loss pretentious quais
of the Heine.
After his dejeuner, he sat for a time
attempting to readjust his ideas. lie
had told Saxon that he would never
again speak of love to Duska. Now, he
realized how barren of hope it would
ever be fur him tu renew his plea. She
had bankrupted his heart. He had
burled hts own hopes, and nu one except himself had known at what cost
to himself. He had taken his place in
the niche dedicated to closest friend,
just outside the inner shrine reserved
for the one who could penetrate that
far. Now, he was lu a greater distress. Now, he wanted only her happiness, and as he had never wanted it
before. Now, he realized that lhe only
suurce through which this could cume
was the suurce that seemed hopelessly
clogged. There was no doubt uf his
sincerity. Even his own intimate
questioning acquitted him uf self-consideration. COUld he at that moment
have had one wish fulfilled by some
magic agency of miracle, that wish
would have been that he might lead
Robert Saxon, as Robert Saxon had
heen, to Dusku, with nil his memory
and love intact, and free from any Incumbrance that might divide litem.
That would have been the gift of all
gifls, and Ihe only gift that would drive;
the look uf heart-hunger and despair
from Iht eyes.
Steele was restless, and. biking up
his hat, he strolled out along the quay,
and turned at last Into ihe Boulevard
St. Michel, stretching off In n broad
vlstft of cafe-lined sidewalks.    The life
of the "Boule Mich" held no attraction
for blm. In Ids earlier days, he had
known II from the river to the Boulevard Moutparnnsse. Ho knew its tributary streets, Its lodgings, Its schools,
and the life which the spirit of Uie
modern is so rapidly revolutionising
from   Bohemia's   shabby   capital   to   a
conventionalized district, None ..r these
things held for him Die piquant challenge <»r novelty.
As  he   passed  a   certain  cafe,   which
io- had once known ns the informal
elub uf the Marston cult, he realised
that hen- the hilarity was more pronounced than elsewhere. The bOUlO-
Vard itself was for squares a thread,
stringing cafes like beads In a necklace. Bach hnd Its crowd of revelers;
Its boisterous throng uf frowsy, volvet-
jarketcd. long-hai rod studonts; Us
laughing models; Its inevitable brooding and despondent abslntheurs sitting
apart in isolated melancholy. Yet,
hero at the "Chat Noir," the chorus
was noisier. Although the evening
was chill. Ihe sidewalk tables were by
no metins descried. The Parisian
proves his patriotism by his adherence
to the out-door table, even If he musl
turn up his Collar, nnd shiver as he
sips his wine.
Listlessly, Steele turned Into the
place, it was su crowded this evening
that for a lime It looked as though he
would have difficulty in finding a sent.
Al last, n waiter led him to a corner
where, dropping to the seat nlong the
wnll, be ordered his wine, nnd sat
gloomily looking un.
The place was unchanged. There
were still lhe habitues quarreling over
their warring tenets of the brush; men
.drawn to the centre of painting as
mot lis   are   drawn   lo   a   candle;    men
of all nationalities ami sorts, alike only
in ihe general quality of their unkempt
There was music of d son; a plaintive chord long-drawn from the violin
occasionally made its sweet wall heard
above the bubo! and through the reeking smoke of the room, Evidently, it
was some oceaslon beyond the ordinary, and Steele, leaning over to the
student nearest him, Inquired in
"Is there some celebration?"
The stranger wns a short man, with
hair that fell low on his neck and
greased his collar. He had a double-
pointed beard and deep-set black oyos,
which he kept fixed un his absinthe as
it dripped drop by drop frum the nickeled device attached tu his frappe glass.
At the question, lie looked up, astonished,
"Bul is il possible monsieur does not
know'.' We are all brothers here—
brothers in lhe worship uf the beautiiul:    Hoes nui monsieur know?"
Steele did not knuw, and he told the
stranger so without persiflage.
•'It   is   that   the   great   .Marston   has
returned!" proclaimed ihe student, in
a loud voice. "It is that the master
bns come back to us—lo Paris!"
The sound of his voice bad brought
others aboul lhe table. "Does monsieur know that tbe Seine Hows".'" demanded a pearly pretty model, raising
her glass and flashing frum her dark
eyes a challenging glance uf ridicule.
Steele   did   not   object   to   the   good-
humored bailing, but be looked about
him, and was thankful that the girl on
her way tu Nice could nut look in on
this enthusiasm over tlie painter's
home-coming; could nul see lu what
Marston was returning; whal character of devotees were pledging the promotion uf the lirst disciple to the place
of the worshiped master.
Some half-drunken student, his hand
upon the shoulder of a model, lifted a
lilting glass, and shouted thickly, "Vive
Tart! Vive Marston!" The crowd
luok up the shout, and there was much
clinking of glass.
Steele, with a feeling of deep disgust,
rose to go. Tbe other quais of the
Seine were better after all. Rut, as he
reached for his hat, he felt a hand on
his shoulder, and, turning, recognized,
with a glow of welcome, the face uf
M. Herve. Like himself, M. Herve

have seemed so had he also not bad,
like Steele, thai adaptability which
makes some men tit into the picture
wherever they may tlnd themselves.
Thc two shook hnnds, and dropped
back on the cushions of lhe wall seat.
"I have heard the story." the Frenchman assured Steele. "Monsieur mny
spare himself the pain of repeating it.
It is a miracle!"
Steele was looking intu his glass.
"It is a must Unhappy miracle," he

- It makes one think!"
Ills vis-a-vis only nodded, and Herve
went on:
"It brings home lo one tbe indestructibility of the true genius—the unquenchable tire of it! Destiny plays a
strange game. She has here taken a
man, and juggled wilh his life; battered his identity to unrecognizable
fragments; set a seal on his past. Yet
his genius she could not efface. That
burned through to the light—sounded
on insistently through the confusion of

through this hell or noises and disorder
—the great unslienced chord! The
man thinks he copies another. Not su
--ho Is merely groping to And himself.
Never hnve I thought so deeply as
since 1 have heard this story."
Fur a time, Steele did not reply. To
him, the personal element drowned the
purely academic interest of the psychological phase In this tragedy.
Suddenly, a new element of surprise
struck him, and he leaned across the
table, his voice full of questioning.
"Rut you," he demanded, "you had
studied under Marston. Vou knew
hhn, and yet. when you saw Saxon,
you had no recognition."
M. Herve nodded his head wilh grave

Frederick Marston was not at onre
removed from the lodgings In the Rue
St. Jacques. Absolute rest was what
he most required. When he awoke
again, unless ho nwoke refreshed by
sullicient rest, Dr, Cornish held out no
hope, The slraln upon enfeebled body
nnd brain bad been great, and fnr dnys
le- remained delirious or unconscious.
Dr. ''ornlsh  was like adamnnt  In his
determination that he should be left
undisturbed for a week or mure.
Meanwhile, the episode hud unexpected results. The physician who had
< ie to Parts fleeing from a government be had failed lo overturn, wbu
had taken an emergency case because
there, was no one else at hand, found
himself suddenly heralded by the Purls
press as "that distinguished specialist,
Dr. Cornish, who is effecting a miraculous recovery for the greatest of painters,"
During these days, Steele was con-
Btantly ut the lodgings, and wilh him,
sharing his anxiety, wns M. Herve
There were muny callers to Inquire—
painters and students of the neighborhood, nnd the greater celebrities from
lhe more distinguished schools.
Rnl no one was more constantly in
attendance than Alfred St. John. He
divided his time between the bedside
of his daughter nnd tlie lodgings where
Marston lay. Tbe talk that tilled the
Latin Quarter, and furiously excited
lhe studio on tbe floor below, was
studiously kept from ihe girl confined
to her couch  upstairs.
One duy while St. John was In the
Rue SI. Jacques, pacing the small cour
with Steele and Herve, Jean Hautecoeur came in hurriedly. Ills manner

and for a moment be paused, seeking
SI. John's face turned while wllh a
divination uf bts tidings.
"Dues sbe need me?" he asked, almost breathlessly.
Ilniiteeoeur nodded, nnd SI. John
turned toward lhe dour. Steele went
with him, and, us Ihey climbed lhe
steep sluirs, the old man leaned heavily
un his support,
The Kentucklan waited in SI. John's
room mosl tif lhat night. In the nexl
apartment were the girl, her father
and tbe physician. A little before
dawn, the old man came out. Hts step
was almost tottering, and he seemed lo
have aged a decade since In- entered
the door of the sick-room.
"My daughter is dead," he said very
simply, as his guest paused at the
threshold, "1 am leaving Paris. My
peoplo except for me huve borne a good
name. I wanted to ask you to save
that name from exposure. I wanted to
bury with my daughter everything that
might shadow her memory. For myself, nothing matters."
Steele took the hand the Englishman held tremblingly outstretched.
"Is there anything else I can do?" he
St. John shook bis head.
"That will be quite all," he answered.
Sueh things as had lo be done, however, Steele did. and two days later,
when Alfred St. John took the train for
Calais and the Channel, it was with
assurances that, while they could not
at tbls time cheer him, at least fortified him against all fear of need.
It was a week later that Cornish
sent for the Kentucklan, who wns waiting in ihe court.
"I think you can see him now." said
the physician briefly, "and 1 think you
will see a man whu has no gaps in his
Steele went wtth some misgiving to
tho sickroom. He found Marston looking at him with eyes as clear and lucid
as his own. As he came up. the other
extended a hand with a trembllm*; gesture of extreme weakness. Steele
clasped it In silence.
For a time, neither spoke.
While Steele waited, the other's face
became drawn. He wns evidently
struggling with himself in desperate
distress. There was something to be
said whieh Marston found it bitterly
ditllcuit to say. At last, he Spoke slowly, forcing his words and bidding his
features In masklike rigidity of control.
"I remember lt all now. George," He
hesitated as his friend nodded; then,
with a drawing of bis brows and a tremendous effort, he added,  huskily:
"And '1 must go to my wife."
Steele hesitated before answering.
"You can't do that, Rub," he said,
gently. "I wns near her as long as
could be. I think she Is entirely happy
The man In lhe bed looked up. His
eyes read the eyes of the other. If
there was In his pulse a leaping sense
of release, he gave It no expression.
"Dead?" he whispered.
Steele nodded.
For a time. Marston gazed up at the
ceiling with a fixed stare. Then, his
face clouded with black self-reproach.
"If I could blot out thut Injury from
memory! Ood knows I meant ii as
"There is time enough to forget."
said Steele.
II was some dnys later thai Mnrston
went with Steele to the Hotel Voltaire.
Tliere was much to be explained and
done. He learned fur the first time the
details of the expedition Steele had
made to South America, and then to
Europe; ut the matter of the pictures
and St. John's connection wilh Ihem.
nnd of the mystifying circumstances of
the name registered at the Eyseel Palace Hotel.    That  incident they never
Sl. John bad buried his daughter tn
the Clmetler Montmartre. After the
tlrst mention of the matter on his recovery lo cm seiousness, Marston had
not again alluded to bis former wife,
until  he  wns  able  to  go  to  the  spot,
|nnd [dace a small tribute on her grave.
i Standing there, somewhat awestruck,
his  face  herame  deeply   grave,   and,
: looking up at his friend, he spoke wllh
i deep agitation!
"There Is one part of my life tbat
Was a tremendous mistake. I sought
to act wtth regard for a misconceived

Infinite pain. I want you to know, and I

that I enn talk of again. You know nil

I must toll you."
Sleelo felt that nothing he eould say
would make tbe recital easier, und he
merely inclined his head.
■I shall have her removed to Bng-
mad. if St. John wishes It," Marston
said. "Ond knows I'd like to have the
account show some offsetting of the
As they left the gates for the omnibus, Marston added:
■ If Sl. John will continue to act as
my agent, he can manage It from the
uther side of the Channel. I shall not
be often in Paris."
Later, lie turned suddenly to the
ICcniiieldan, with a half-smile.
"We swindled St. John," he exclaimed. "We. bought back the pietures at
Saxon prices." His voice became unusually soft. "And Frederick Marston
can never paint another so good as the
portrait, We must set that right, Do

siiiiy—"it's rather disconcerting to find

Sleeie smiled with relief at the
change of the subject.
•'Is that the sensation of being
deified?" he demanded. "Does one
simply feci that Olympus is drawn
down to sea level?"
Shortly after, Marslun sent a brief
uuie  tu   Duska.
"I shall suy little," he wrote. "1 can't
be sure you will give me a hearing,
but also 1 can not go until I have begged it. : can nul bear that any report
shall reach you until I have myself reported. My only comfort is that I

And lhe girl rending the lottor lei II
drop in her lap, find looked out through
ber window across lhe dazzling whiteness uf the Promenade dos Anglais to
the purple Mediterranean,   Once more,
her   eyes   lighted   from   deep   cobalt   to
"Lul tliere wus nothing to forgive,"
she softly told tbe sea.
When, u month later, Frederick
Marston went tu the hotel on the Promenade "les Anglais at Nice, it was a
much Improved and rejuvennted man
as compared with the wasted creature
wiio had opened the closed door of tlie
"academy" tn the Quartler Latin, and
had dropped the key on the flour. Although still a trifle gaunt, he was mucli
the same person who. almost a year
before, had clung to the pickets of
Churchill Downs, and halted in his
view of a two-year-old finish. Just as
the raw air of the north had given
place to the wooing softness of the
Riviera, and the wet blankets of haze
over tho gardens of the Tuileries to
the golden sunlight of the tlower-
deeked south, so he had come again
out of winter Into spring, and the final
result uf his life's equation was the
man that had been Saxon, untouched
by the old Marston.
Duska's stay at Nice had been begun
in apathy. About her were all the
Influences of beauty and roses and soft
breezes, but it was not until sbe had
read this Ilrst letter from Marston lhat
these things meant anything to her.
Then, suddenly, she had awakened to a
sense of its delight. She knew that he
would not come at once, and she felt
that this was best. She wanted him
to come buck to her when be could
cume as the man who had been In her
life, and, since she knew he was coming, she could wait. Her eyes had become as brightly blue as the Mediterranean mlrrurlng the sky, and her
cheeks had again taken un their kinship to the roses of the Riviera. Once
more, she was one with the nature of
this favored spot, a country thut some
magical realist seems to hove torn
bodily from the enchanted Isles of
imnglnation, and transplanted in the
world of Pact.
.Now, she became eager tn see everything, and so tt happened thai, when
Marston, who had not notified her of
the day of his arrival, reached her
hotel, it was tu find that she and her
aunt had motored over to Monte Carlo,
by the upper Cornlehe Road, that
show-drive of the world which climbs
along the heights with the sen below
and the sky. it would seem, nol far
The man turned out again to the
Promenade des Angiitis. The sun was
shining on Its whiteness, and it seemed
that the city was a huge structure of
solid marble, set between the sea and
tbe color-spotted slopes of tho villa-
clad hills.
Marston was highly buoyant as he
made his way to the garage where he
could secure a ear to give chase. He
even paused with boyish and delighted
Interest tn gaze Into the glittering shop
Windows nf the Promenade and the
Avenue Felix Faun-, where were
temptingly displayed profound booklets
guaranteeing the purchaser a sure system for conquering the chances uf roulette "on a capital of ._.i. playing red
nr black, manque or passe, pair nr Impair, and compiled by one with four
yeurs of experience."
He had soon negotiated for a ear,
and had gained the friendship of the
chauffeur, who grinned happily and
with contentment when he learned that
monsieur's object was speed. Ahead
of him stretched nine mites of perfect
macadam, with enough beauty to All
tho eye and heart with joy for every
mile, and nt the end nf lho Journey—
unless he could happily overtake lier
sooner—was Duska.
The car sped up between the villus,
up to the white ribbon nf road where
the ships, lying at anchor In the purpled waler benenlh, were white toys
im lunger tban pencils, whore towns
wero only patches of roof tiles, and
mountainsides mere rumpled blankets
of greon and color; whore the road-
houses woro delights of picturesque
rusticity nnd flower-covered walls.
Thanks to a punctured tire, Marston
found a large dust-couted car stnndlng
nt the roadside when he had covered
only half of the journey, lt wns drawn
up near a road-house that sat hnek
of a rough stone wall, anl was aban
doned save for the chauffeur, who
labored over his task of repair. But
Marston stopped and ran up the stone
stairs to the small terrace, where, be-
tween rose hushes that crowded the
time-stained facade of the modest car-
avansery, were set two or three small
tables under a trellis; and, ut one uf
the taldes, lie recognized Mrs. Horton.
Mrs. Horton rose with a little gasp
of delight to welcome him, and recognized how his eyes were ranging in
search for an even more important
personage while be greeted her. Off
beyond tlio road, with iis low guarding
wall of stone, thc mountainside fell
away precipitously to thc sea, stretching out below in a limitless expanse of
the bluest blue that our' eyes enn endure.   The slopes were thickly wooded.
"We blew out a tire," explained Mrs.
Horton, "and Duska is exploring somewhere over the wall there. I was content to sit here and wait—but you are
younger," she added with a smile. "I
won't keep you here."
From inside the tavern came the
tinkle of guitars, from everywhere in
the clear crystalline air bung the perfume of roses. Marston, with quick
apologies, hastened across the road,
vaulted the wall, and began his search,
ll was a brief one, for, turning Into a
clearing, he saw her below him on a
ledge. She stood as straight aud slim
and gracefully erect as the lancollke
young trees.
He made his wuy swiftly duwn the
Blope, anil she had not turned nor
heard bis npirouch. lie went straight
to her. and look her in Ids arms,
The girl wheeled wil h u   llltle cry of

"Quote it to me now," she commanded, wllh reinstated autocracy,
For a momenl, lbc man looked Into

clasping her very close, he whispered
the lines:
"Beautful, bold and browned.
Bright-eyed nut of the battle.
The voting queen rode to be crowned."
"Do you remember some other lines
in the same verse?" she questioned, In
a voice that made his throbbing pulses
bound faster; but, before he could answer, she went on:

11DWAHD l-'Itzgerald Bcale, whose
li biography Is given to us by Mr.
Stephen Uonsal, belongs to a type
lhat has disappeared with the need
for lt. A grandson of Truxton, he was
born ln the navy and his early years
were passed at sea. He fought at San
1'asqual and lt was he, in company
with Kit Carson, who carried to Commodore Stockton at San Diego the
news of General Kearny's situation.
Heale was In California at the time of
tlie gold discovery and he went east
with the news and with the ilrst samples of the precious metal. Bayard
Taylor called him "a pioneer in the
path of empire." for after his resignation from the navy he devoted himself
to the exploration of the desert trails
and the mountain passes that led
overland lo llm Pacific, while later on
he surveyed the routes nnd built Ihe
wagon roods over which passed the
mighty migration which created the
new world beyond tho Rockies, All

(..■ale's iirsi great adventure befell
him us fi buy. He was doputod by
(leiierai Kearny, boslogad at Son Pos-
HUttl, lo meet lhe enemy's envoys, aud
to  lre.it   (or an OXCltangO 0(  prisoners.
The incident was described by Senator Denton, who learned it t'roin Kil
Carson himself!
"This lad volunteered to go und hear
the propositions of exchange. Great

lx-barreled revolver, In addition to
the sword, per foe tiy charged and capped, was slowed under his coat. Thus
equipped, and well-iuoiiiited, be sel
out, protected by a Hag and followed
by anxious eyes and palpitating hearts.
The utile river San Bernardo wns
crossed ai a plunging gallop, without
a drink, though rabbi for water hoth
the horse and his rider, the rider having a policy which the horse could not
comprehend. Approaching a picket-
guard, a young alfarez (ensign) came
ut to Inquire for what purpose. The
mission was made known, for Bealo
spoke Spanish; and while a sergeant
was sent to lhe general's tent to Inform him of the Hag. a soldier was
despatched to the river for water.
'Hand it to the gentleman,' was the
Castlllan command. Beale put the cup
to his lips, wet them, In token of ac-
knowledglng jl civility, and passed it
hack; aa much as to say, 'we have
water enough on that hill.' The alfarez smiled; and, while waiting the
arrival of Don Andres, a courteous
dialogue went on. 'How do you like
the country?" inquired the alfarez. 'Delighted with it,' responded Beale. Tou
occupy a good position to take a wide
view." 'Very good; ono can see all
round.' 'I don'l think your horses find
the grass refreshing on the hill.' 'Not
very refreshing, but strong.' There
was, In fact, no grass on the hill, nor
any shrub but tbo one called wire-
wood, from the close approximation of
its twigs to that attenuated preparation of iron whieh is used for making
knit ling-needles, card-teeth, tlshtng-
hooks, and such small notions; and
upon which wood, down to Its roots,
the famished horses gleaned until com-
isionate humanity cut the halters,
and permit led them to dash to the
river and Us grassy banks, and become the steeds of the foe."
Dy this time three horsemen were
seen riding up. Arriving within certain distance they halted, snld Senator
Benton, ns only Cullfornhinn and
Mamelukes can halt, the horse, at n
pull of the bridle and lever bit. thrown

the gentleman, Denle did the same—

then forty feet apart. But the revolver: there It stuck under his coat-
unmistakable symptom of distrust or
perlldy--sign of Intended or apprehended assaslnation, and outlawed by every
code of honor from the Held of parley. A stolen sheep on his back would
have been a Jewelled star on his breast
compared to the fixed fact of that assassin revolver under his midshipman'.*,
coat. Confusion filled his bosom; and
for u moment his honor and shame
contended for the mastery. To try
and hide it, or pull it out. expose it,
and fling It away, wns the question;
but with the grandson of Truxton it
was a brief question. High honor prevailed. The clean thing was done.
Abstracted from its close concealment,
tlie odious tool was bared to the light.
and vehemently dashed far away—lhe
generous Cnllfornlan affecting not to
have seen ll. Then breathed the hoy
easier and deeper."
As a result of his bravery, Beale was
Intrusted by Commodore Stockton with
dispatches for Washington and was
ordered to proceed there with Kit Carson, a journey of Immense labor nnd
danger. After they reached the Gila,
they found traces of Indians and Carson's experience foresaw a night attack:
"When he considered that the psychological moment hnd come, from indications that wero hnythlng but enlightening to his companions, Carson
met Indian strategy with tho trapper's
ruse. Carson und Heale and tho olher
riflemen cooked their supper rather
early ln the evening, and wrapped In
tbelr blankets throw themselves on tho
grass, apparently to sleep, but ns soon
as It was dark the men wero ordered
lo rise and to march forward for something more than a mile, again to picket their animals and to arrange tholr
pack-saddles so llmt they might serve
as a protection from the arrows of tho
Indians. At midnight the yell of the
savago wns hoard and a shower of
arrows fell around but wide of the
mark. The attacking party had not
ascertained with accuracy the changed
position of the travellers,   They dared
not approach near enough to see, for
in that case they knew the fate that
awaited them from the unerring aim
of Kit and his companions. After
many random shots and many unearthly yells the discomfited savages
fled before the approach of dawn. And
this was the last serious attempt made
by the "horse Indians" to prevent the
bearers of dispatches from crossing
their territory."
There are many amusing tales told
of the early days of American control
In California, and many of these relate
to the Hev. Walter Coltoti, who came
out as chaplain on the Congress. Tliere
was one in particular that lieale delighted  to relate In after years:
"When Commodore Stockton instituted civil government over the territory
so recently wrested from the Mexicans,
lhe Hev. Colton was appointed alcalde
of Monterey, where his duties wore
both administrative and judicial.
Gambling was then tho besetting sin
of the Mexican California)!, as il soon
became thai of the American Invader.
Tliere was also a dearth of milch cows
ln Ibe community, which wus all the
more   severely    felt    beeniise    In    those
days condensed milk and the other sub-
sliiules were unknown.
"tine day Iwo gamblers were brought
before the clerical alcalde as was also
a mngniflconl fresh cow. They were
charged wilh having gambled over It,
and the ownership of the animal was
disputed. The Lev. Colton considered
lhe story us set forth by lho Interested parlies with great interest and then*
submitted Iln* following decree:
" 'You, sir, lost the cow, consequently it does not belong to you.' Then,
turning to the other man, he said:
'Vou, sir, have won it—you have won
it liy gambling, but this is a form of
transfer that the court does not recognize. ]n my opinion, therefore, the
animal eschews to the court.' "
in iiiG_ Lieutenant Beale was appointed by President Fillmore as general superintendent of Indian affairs
for California and Nevada. Beale left
Washington on April 20 to undertake
his new duties, and his diaries are of
remarkable interest as reflecting the
prevailing conditions on the great overland route. Under date of May 22 he
"We had already overtaken and pass
ed several large wagon and cattle
trains from Texas and Arkansas, mostly bound for California. With them
were many women and children; and
It was pleasant to stroll into their
camps in the evening and witness the
perfect air of comfort and being-at
home that they presented. Their wa
gons drawn up in a circle, gave them
at least an appearance of security;
and within the Inclosure the men either
reclined around the camprlres, or were
busy In repairing their harness or
cleaning their arms. The females milked the cows and prepared the supper;
and we often enjoyed the hot cakes
and fresh milk of which they invited
us to partake. Tender infants in tbelr
cradles were seen under thc dielter
of the wagons, thus early Inured to
hard travel. Carpets and rocking
chairs were drawn out, and what
would perhaps shock some of our 'in
ladies, fresh-looking girls, whos:*- ros,

Indians were encountered on July ii.
Several of Ihem rodo into camp and
wen- entertained, and they then Insisted that Beale return with them to their
own encampment ten miles away.

boldly witb Indians be compiled, and
apparently had no reason to regret it.

at tho tables of the wealthiest in

because I had scraped the dish dry

.Mr. Heap, who belonged lo Lieutenant
lieale's party, relates the following incident :
"At one time the conduct of a young
chief, the son of El Capital! Grande,

nearly threw them both to the ground.
The Indian, then seizing Felipe's rifle,
endeavored to wrench It from his
hands, but the latter held firmly to his
gun, telling us at the same timo not
to interfere. We and tho Indians
formed a circle around them, as they
sat in tlieir saddles, each holding on
to the gun, whose muzzle was pointed
full at the Indian's breast. Ho uttered
many imprecations and urged his followers to lend him their- assistance.
They looked al us inquiringly, nnd we
cocked our rifles; the hint was sufficient—-they declined to interfere. For
some minutes the Utah and Felipe remained motionless, glaring at each
other like two game-cocks, each watching with Hashing eyes for an opportunity to assail his rival. Seeing that
to trifle longer would be folly, Felipe,
who held tbe butt-end of the rifle,
deliberately placed his thumb on the
hammer and raising it slowly, gave
warning to tbe young chief, by two
omttllous clicks, that bis life was In
danger, For a moment longer the
Utah eyed Felipe, and tben, with an
Indescribable grunt, pushed the ride
from him, aud lashing his horse furiously, rode away from us al full speed,
Felipe gave us a sly wink, and uttered
lhe highly original ejaculation—'Cara-
Heale was a sullleleiuly strong man
to champion tlie Modoc Indians at a
time when il needed some courage to
tell tlie truth concerning the treatment
ihey bad i elved and that led to the
uprising. He addressed n letter to the
Republican or < ihester, Pennsylvania,
which contains tho following notable
"Let us pause for a moment before
committing ourselves to a policy more
savage and remorseless lhan that of tin
Modi ic h whom we propose to smite hip
and thigh. Let us ask ourselves if wc
are not reaping what we have sown,
nnd If the treachery to which the gal
lant and lamented Cnnby fell a victim
is not a repetition of a lesson which we
ourselves have taught these apt schol
ars, the Indians? Are we to think our
selves blameless when we recall the
Chlvlngton massacre'.' ln lhat affair
lhe Indians were invited to council
under flags of truce, and the rites of
hospitality, sacred even among the Bedouins of the desert, were violated as
well as all military honor, for these
poor wretches, while eating the sacred
bread and salt, were ruthlessly fallen
upon and slaughtered to the last man
The Piegan massacre was another affair in which we industriously taught
the uncultivated savages the value of
our pledges; and if we are correctly
informed the very beginning of the Modoc war was an attempt while ln thc
act of council to which they had been
invited to make Captain Jack and two
others prisoners. As to the bloody
character of Indian warfare, as far as
we can see, it is carried on by us with
about the same zeal. We read of a
sergeant ln the service of the United
States who tn the late attack on the
Modocs 'took the scalp of Scar-face
Charley, who was found wounded ln
the. lava beds.' And if we desire to feel
very good and free from barbarism
we have only to read what comes to
us side by side with news from tbe
Modocs of the humnne and civilized
treatment we are meting out to our
brothers in Louisiana, who differ from
us on political questions; or recall the
massacre and robbery and mutilation
of unoffending Chinese, which was
committed in broad daylight by American citizens in California a year or so
General Beale—for be had now attained high military rank'—had sufficient faith In the future of California
to purchase large tracts of land making in the aggregate an estate half as
large ns Rhode Island.
"A witty though absolutely groundless story Is told about Lincoln ami
General Beale, and the hitter's great
landed possessions. Lincoln is reported as saying that he could not re-appoint Beale as surveyor-ffcnernl because 'he became monarch of all he
"As a matter of fact General Heale,
to the amusement of many uf his
friends, who have since died poor, purchased for cash all the laud in California of which he died possessed, and
the purchases were made long before
he became surveyor-general. While
Heale only paid five cents an acre for
much of this land, this was five cents
an acre more than most people at the
time thought it was worth, and It was
well known tbat for years no while
man could be paid to live on the place
during tiie general's frequent absences
for fear of marauding Indians nnd
white outlaws.
"General Beale enjoyed the 'surveying story,' as he called It. as well as
anyone else, but once he said, 'Some
day the archives of our country will
tell why Lincoln made me surveyor-
general. It had nothing to do with
rod or chain, but much to do with the
metes and bounds of the Union.'"
General Beale's ranch life was usually busy enough, but lie found time to
use his pen as a cudgel upon some
of the Sierra poets who were beginning
to write of pioneer days without much
regard to accuracy. In the course of
a vigorous rejoinder to Joaquin Miller,
he pays a tribute lo Kit Carson:
"Carson was a man cleanly of mind,
body, and speech, and by no manner
of means a border rufllan. He had no
gift of swearing. Tho only onth I over
heard him use was that of William
the Conqueror, which I hnd once read
him out of a stray volume of 'Tristram Shandy.' On this occasion, he
drew a long single-barreled pistol (old
Constable's make), which Fremont had
given me, ond 1 to Kit. for we had no
•gold-mounted Colt's, true companions

and with slow, deadly speech, which

of extraordinary courage, but he had
a power of loyal friendship remarkable enough even in those days, when
comradeship was among the greater

We have heard much in recent years
about tbe use of vituperation and Invective by our political orators. V
passage occurs In the newly published
Parliamentary Reminiscences of Mr,
William Jeans (who sat in the Press

years), however, thnt shows the
strength of language used In parliament In the sixties to have far exceeded our present limits of personalities.
It was during the fierce debate In 18(1.1.
regarding the purchase of tbe building
used for the Exhibition of 1801. Sir
Charles Wood, wbo suffered from a
nervous and hesitating method of
speech, had spoken for the government,
and was followed by Mr. Grant Duff
with this choice example of acrid ridicule. "The speech," he said, "which
we have just heard—If it could be
called a speech—was a sort of concatenation of broken iiiterjoetlonnry remarks, jerked out by a minister to
Whom Heaven has denied not only the
power of lueld statement, but also of
articulate speech." An attack of this
kind on a minister, adds Mr. .leans,
would certainly lie followed now hv
cries of "Order," and "Withdraw.'' but

Sneiker did not Int erf en There was
a solitary cry of "Oh," and I remem

British Columbia, having a population of 392,480, according to the
final returns, just published from
the fifth census of Canada, the numlier of members to be granted this
province on the decennial re-adjustment of representation is found to
he thirteen, or six more than the
number of members of tlie Commons
now representing British Columbia.
According to the terms of Confederation the representation of Quebec
remains at the iixed numlier of 65.
In the ease of other provinces
tlie number of members is to bear
the same porportions to the numlier
of its population as ascertained at
each census as the number sixty-live
hears to the number of the population 30,811 obtained hy tlie division
of 65 into 2,002,712 the population
of Qubcc at the census taking year.
The number 802180, British Columbia's census enumeration, divided
hy 80,711 gives 12,78 and as tho
Act provides that, in tlie computation of the number of members a
fractional part of n number not exceeding one-half of the whole numbor requisite f.sr entitling Ihe provinco to a nienilier shall Ihi disregaad-
cd, hut a fractional part exceeding
me Imlf shall lie equivalent to the I
whole numbor, then it is manifest
that British Columbia's representation on re-adjustment must he 13.
On tho same basis Alberta's representation will be increased from
7 to 12; Manitoba from 10 to 15;
Saskatchewan from 10 to 16. The
total representation for the four
western provincs will thus be increased from 34 to 50, or an addition of twenty-two members. The
total population of Canada is given
as 7.204.838.
Tlie mayor of Stubenville, Ohio,
has introduced a new treatment for
the liquor habit that for prompt results has the "gatling gun" and
other remedies "beaten to a fizzle."
He compels the drunks in the police
court to don boxinggloves and pummel each other until thoroughly
sober. None of the patients have
suffered a relapse.
Milwaukee milk dealers, charged
with selling adulterated milk, pleaded that the undue proportion of
water wns caused by the cows being
exposed in a rain storm. This contention didnt hold water in the eyes
of the law and the court imposed a
fine and recommended them to provide tarpaulin rain shedders for their
herds during the wet season.

Advertise in the Free Press.
Jogging Laziness into Activity.
Tho merchant whose Inisiness lags
in tho summer has himsolf to thank.
To slacken the selling pace in tho
hot season—to lessen advertising
activity— indicates a resignation
which has no place in modern business. If we think we cannot keep
uur business booming in summer
time, we surely will not. What a
jolt it must, have been to the fur trade
when the tirst mid-summer fur ad-1
vertlseinent was run in a daily paper!
Now many fur stores are following
the example of this progressive fur
man who dared to believe that fur
sales need not go down ns the mercury goes up. Energy, linked with
advertising has turned  the month
f January into the biggest selling
season for white goods. Advertisements of a high stimulative power,
combined with a disregard of
"seasons," have opened up automobile selling two months earlier than
was once thought possible. Adve-
tising has started Christmas shopping early in Ootober instead of the
middle of Dcceinder. Advertising
rises superior to seasons ami thermometers. The right kind of advertising strikes a responsive curd in
human nature—and human nature
is the same in August as in December.

When be went to Purls a few weeks
ago tin* Prlnco was an unassuming
and somewhat bashful youth. The
general opinion Ih (bat be will have
developed considerably by lho time lie
ret urns In lhe autumn, and perhaps
lhat expectation may account for tbe
activity of the matchmakers,
There Is no doubt as to tho desirability of the catch, for thero is no royal
mother on earth who would not gladly
seo her daughter wedded to the
prlnco, who Is heir to tbo triple crown
of England, Scotland and Irelnnd, the
Imperial diadem of India, tho lordship
of ono-fifth of the human raco and of
Ihroe-lenths of the habitable portion
of lhe globe.
Even this Is not all, for bo is tbe
inheritor of the enormous private for-
Uinc of the English kings, which means
their own personal property absolutely
and completely distinct from crown
properly which is held in trust by the
stale and which is daily increasing in
value. But we are not here making
an inventory of the Royal possessions
Whether in the form of accumulated
investments or landed estates or city
properties all over the United Kingdom, but discussing the problem of the
selection of a consort for the prince
which is rendered all the more formidable and puzzling by the fact that the
holr-apparent is debarred by thc constitution from marrying a Human
This may In part account for the fact
that until now two princesses only
havo been openly mentioned as probable brides—one is the Grand Duchess
Olga of Ilussln. eldest daughter of the
Czar, and the other is the Princess
Victoria Louise of Germany, only
daughter of the Kaiser.
Grand Duchess Olga, who is about
eighteen, too. Is a very pretty girl,
although she does- not possess her
mother's almost classical features and
exquisitely delicate profile. However.
Ihe union would doubtless be vigorously promoted by the Dowager Empress
of Russia and by her sister Alexandra.
Dowager Queen of Great Britain and
Ireland, for the latter adores her
arandson "David'' (Prince Edward's
nickname), as she docs also her i-'ister.
Marie Ddgmar.
No doubt also the now o\isling English government would bo far from
Crowning upon this union, since there
is fo much at slake In the present
Anglo-Itusslan alliance, which WOUld
he naturally immensely strengthened
thereby. On the other hand, the Conservative opposition In England might
possibly disapprove; and there is also
a vague rumor to the effect that King
George, as well as Queen Mary, would
not regard ihe connection as desirable.
Princess Victoria l-milse of Germany
would. In becoming tho consort of the
English heir apparent, absolutely wipe
out lhe—lo be polite In terminology—
latent animosity which several years
past has made cloud mountains rise iu
formidable array between tlie two
countries. Uut the English people arc
not in tlie least anxious to Germanize
tlie crown. Besides which, another ami
yet more potent reason for lhe non-
success of this project is that both Un-
English and the German courts are
Convinced that the young people arc
far from being attracted to each other.
To begin with. Princess Victoria
Louise has been brought up In a purely
German manner and among nu essentially un-English entourage. Her numerous brothers—she worships them
all—are emphatically anti-English. the
only member of her large family who
Is friendly to England being ber father,
who. though fond or lhe people, dislikes
lhe form of government.
There certainly an- other royal girl-
tn Europe who would be proud and
happy lo become Princess of Wall-.
Por Inslanco, the pretty fairy princess,
Ellsabolh of l.oinnunia, would he without   lhe  possibility  of * doubt   a   w«l-
como addition  to lha TCngllsh  royal
family were it only for the extraordinary popularity ut her mothor in tho
land of her birth. Daughter of th.'
wn Prince of Uoumanla, granddaughter of the Duke of Edinburgh
(who later nn became Duke of Saxe-
Coburg and Golh.O. ami of his consort,
Grand Duchess Maria of Uussla, Elizabeth, like ull those wbo arc thc Issue
uf different and sympathetic people of
different nationalities, is a "char-
nieuse" of tho Ilrst order. Moreover,
sbe has been brought up very much "a
I'Anglalse" In spile of Queen "Carmen

lluence. Then there aro tbo cousins

One mny reflect with contentment that
thc future of tbe attractive youth Is In

i Born nt Purls In 1840— the natal year
of bis friends Claude Monet and Emllo
ZolO—and In humble circi.mstnnces, not
even enjoying a liberal education, tho
young Rodin had to light from tho beginning, fight for bread ns well as for
art schooling, lie was not sure of his
vocation.     An accident determined it.
Ho became a workman in lhe atelier
of Carrler-Delleust*. the sculptor, bul
not till he had failed at lho Beaux-Arts
t a stroke of good luck for hla genius),
and after he had enjoyed some tentative Instruction under the animal
sculptor, R-irye. He was never a
steady pupil of Baryo's, i.or did he *o-
maln witli him long. He wenl lo Belgium and "ghosted" for olher sculptors'; indeed, it waa a privilege—or a
misfortune—to have been the "ghost"—
anonymous assistant—for a half-dozen
sculptors. He learned hla technique
hy the sweat of his brow before ho began to make music upon his own Instrument.
How his tlrst work, "The Man With
the Erolccn Noae," was refused by a
Salon jury la history. Ho designed for
lhe Sevres porcelain works; he made
portrait busts, caryatides, architectural
ornaments for aculptora; all styles that
an- huddled in the yards and studios he
had assayed and conquered. No man
knew hla trade better, though we uninformed lhat with the chisel of the
practlclen Rodin was never proficient;
he could not or would not work at the
marble en bloc. Hut his compositions
today are in the leading museums of
the world, and by academicians he Is
admitted to possess "talent." Rivals
he haa none, nor will he have successors. Ills art Is too personal. Like
Richard Wagner, ho has proved a
upas-tree for many lesser men; he haa
absorbed them or else has been re-
fioctod by I hem. ills closest friend,
the late Eugene Carrloro, warned
young aculptora not to study Rodin too
A profound aiudent of light and
movement, Rodin, by deliberate amplifications of surfaces, avoiding dryness
and harshness of outline, achieves a
zone of radiancy, a luminosity which
creates tho illusion of reality. He
handles values in clay as does a painter
hla tones. He secures the design of
tlio outline by movement, which continually modifies the anatomy — the
secret, he believes, of the Greeks. He
studies hia profiles successively in full
light, obtaining volume—or planes—at
once and together; successive viewa of
one movement. The light plnys with
more freedom upon his amplified surfaces, intensified in the modeling by
enlarging the lines. The edges of certain parts aro amplified, falsified, deformed, and wo get that light-swept
effect, that appearance ns If of lumin-
us emanations, This deformation, he
declares, was practised by thc great
sculptors to snare the undulating appearance of life. Sculpture, he asserts,
is the art of the hole and the lump,
not of clear, well-smoothed, unmod-
elled figures." Finish kills vitality.
Yet Rodin can chisel a smooth nymph
for you if he ao wills; but her llesh will
ripple and run in the sunlight. His
art Is one of accents. He works hy
profile In depth, not by surfaces. He
swears by what he calls "cubic truth ,
his pattern Is a mathematical figuro;
the pivot of sculpture ia balance—i.e.,
the oppositions of volume produced by
movement. Unity haunts him. He la
a believer in the correspondence of
things, of continuity in nature; a mystic doubled by a geometrician. How-
quarrels with any artist who does not
aee "tlie latent heroic in every natural
Therefore, he docs not force the pose
of hla model, preferring gestures and
attitudes  voluntarily  ndoptcd. His
sketch-books, as copious, as vivid as
tin* drawings of Hokusai—he Is very
studious of Japanese art—aro awlft
memoranda of the human machine as
it dispenses ita quotidian muscular
motions. Rodin, draftsman. Is as surprisingly original as the [sculptor
l^odin. He will study a human foot for
months, not merely to copy It, but to
run down the secret of Its rhythms.
Ills drawings are the swift notations of
a sculptor whose eye Is never satisfied,

IF you were to build two silos—one of wood, the other of concrete—side by side, and

lo think twice to decide which it the best material. In a few years more there
wouldn't be much of the original wooden silo left—the repairing you'd have to do would be
as troublesome and cost as much as the building of an entirely new one. But lhe passage of
five, ten, fifteen or even twenty years will make no difference to the hard-as-rock wall of the

grandfathers spoke of thousands, the

mere passing attention, except amongst
railway men.    And yet this order In
volves an expenditure of the inimens

costing $14,000,000 and the locomotlv

A Gainful Occupation
i By W. Edson Smith)
The fut-vlsoged, pimply young man
with the sore eyelids gazed bitterly
down over the shabby roll-top desk.
"You'd better swipe the pennies off a
dead man's eyes," he growled sulkily.
At this ancient sarcasm the dissipated face of the employment agent
underwent a lightning change. It
stiffened coldly, and a sneer twisted
the good-natured mouth. Wells
stared Insolently up at his visitor.
"What's the matter with you, Hanson?" he queried sharply. "You registered only two weeks ago. You must
think that office positions are as thick
as flies."
Hanson shuffled his feet indefinitely.
"When a fellow pays you good
money, he ought to get some consideration—seems that wny to me," he
Wells jammed some papers Into a
pigeonhole, Then he tipped his revolving chair backward tit u sharp
angle, putting one knee against tho
edge of the desk.
"You're gelling till the consideration
that Is coming to you," he mild with
finality. "You paid a fee for lhe privilege of filing yuur application with me.
ii was distinctly understood that thero
was lo he no strings to your measly
utile old two dollars, t told you ut tho
lime, the* chances for a man with no j Hi
experience were far nml few, bul you
were crazy lo get aboard then. 1

that sort, and think you could use Iwo
dollars Oh? I don't sen It lhat way.
If 1 hOttr of nny vacancy lhat yon

Hanson glowered.   "You're a hell of
a bUBlnoSS uian, aln'l you','" lie remarked heavily with nonr Irony.
"Thai's whut I am," cuiiid thc curl
rejoinder. "Anyhow, I'm uot easily
worked. Can I do anything moro for
you today?" he Queried in polite conclusion.   "My lime Is quite taken up,
hut of course "
After Hanson had shambled out and
down lhe hall, after lhe door of the descending elevator had slithered open
and clashed shut, the intelligence
broker still sat motionless, staring ut
the wall. And the wall was not far
uwny, for Wells had cramped quarters;
a mere, three-angled nick In the very
corner of a many-slorled building. Tlu*
outer side wns set with three windows
—In fact, three windwos might he said
to form the outer side. Through them
floated the traffic grind from one of the
busiest streets In town. The broker's
desk was close to the door so that he
could look over It at whoever entered.
This was a convenient arrangement. A
lift of the eyebrows and a practiced
shake of tho head was sufficient to, send
many of his less Insistent clients
stolidly down the hall again. In the
front angle of the office was a typewriter desk. Whether this was occupied by a stenographer depended not so
much on the amount of correspondence
as on the condition of the treasury.
Kmptoyment ngents are accustomed to
precarious existences.
Wells bud a hundred romantic stories
fllod nway behind his eyes, and half
forgotten. He did not deal in servant
maids, nor yet In railway hoboes. To
him came the eager youngsters with
their litlle mockery of knowledge acquired at one of tho hundred business
colleges, cheerfully pouring their attainments Into his cynic ears; modestly requesting secretaryships to heads
of corporations. To him came deserted wives, fearfully eager lo take up the
bitter task tif earning their dally bread;

Arising, he went over to lhe farthest

Having written this very important
paragraph three times, Mr. Wells
blotted it, placed It in a pigeonhole, und
then glanced up with the trite, "What
can I do for you?"
. It was a girl who came doubtfully,
hesitatingly, around his desk, and, it
his inviting nod, sank wearledly Into
the chair near him. Sho waa a de-
n.ure, graceful little thing, nineteen

silky brown hair showed smoothly

"I do need a position very, very badly," she added earnestly. "Anything at

This last came out with frantic eagerness. And then the cough—a tearing,
strangling struggle with disease thai
tinged her cheeks a (laming red. and
left little crimson flecks upon her handkerchief.
Wells steeled himself with an armour
of professional apathy. lt wns one of

thought of a trapped bird.
"Ever do uny office work?" he asked
helplessly, following the old routine.
"No," she replied soflly, "I have

stopped, then went on as if a further
explanation was necessary. "My home

of the narrative.

Wells stared blankly. The girl
coughed for a long, agonizing mlnule
and, whon the spasm was over, sat with
her face hidden ln her hands. The
man nt the desk stirred uneasily.
"Let me see," he queried; "how much

In November. 1006, t wns fortunate
enough to be included In ono of tho

pltnllty of His Highness the Maharajah of Mysore was proverbial In
Bout hern India, and It wns entirely
due to his kindness that we were allowed to Shoot In Ihe "closer forests,
which were, ns a rule, exclusively reserved for royalty. These parties
were usually mado up of the Ynvuraja

llritish officers from Uni galore. The
arrangements for ones comforl were
made on u most lavish scab* as regards

It came to the shikar pari or the business one was left almost entirely free

AHer a run or about two hours
Ibrough the beautiful "garden" slate
of Italia we arrived at a "tlnk"
bungalow, the name or which I ninnot
for the moment remember, where we
spent lhe night, nnd discussed plans
for Ibe next ten days. We bnd already received news or a tiger which
had made his home near tho small
hamlet of Kurkaiikole, and hnd hoard a
pitiful tale of lis depredations from
tho villagers. This particular animal
had taken an enormous numbor of
cattle during the last few months, nnd
quite recently hud killed nnd eaten a
native,   Naturally, these poor people
were very noxious to be rid of their
most unwelcome visitor, nnd we wore
very keen to assist them In this respect. Accordingly we dorlded to tlo
up donkeys in Ihe vicinity In the hope
of getting a "kill" and to depart to the
were several herds in the neighborhood but wc generally lot them alone,
as il was almost a hopeless task to
get up to them, us the jungle was very
thick at this lime ut the yenr, und it
would only be by the greatest fluke if
one happened to drop on a good bull
without disturbing lhe more numerous
cows and calves. H. had shot quite a
good solitary bull, and one small herd
bull luul also been bagged. A day
never passed without ot least one of
our parly coming across bison, und in
sueh pleasant surroundings we had almost forgotten about the tiger, and had
decided lo spend the remainder of our
short leave at our present camp. However, on tho morning of the eighth day
news enme into camp by runner lhal
the Karkankote tiger hail killed during
the nighl. We accordingly moved to
that plate next day, und tied up three
donkeys, hoping that the llgor would
kill again lhat nighl, as the following
day was Hit- last of our leave. II. and
1 were Up al dawn, nml, nu visiting the
place where lhe donkeys had been
tethered, found lhal Iwo of them had
beeu Killed and dragged away. We
located the tiger In some thick jungle,
und made certain that ho had nol lefl,
as no fresh tracks could anywhere bo
found leading away from lhe place. We
then seni word bail* lo the dak
bungalow to have iill the available
men collided us healers, and for men
to come mil .-il once to build our
machans, While we wore visiting ihe
kills u*e came across Iwo Indian red
dogs. This was the first time 1 had
ever seen one of these animals, and I
was much impressed by their build,
which was certainly for speed and
strength. They wore on lhe high road,
and Stood for some time looking at us
at a disiance of from 25 to 30 yards.
Thoy ottered u very easy shot, and,
much as I desired to possess the skin
of one, 1 had lo refrain from shooting
for foar of disturbing the nobler animal which we felt confident was close
nl hnnd.
The arrungemenls for thc beat were
not complete until about li p.m., but
everything had been done very carefully, and our hopes for success ran
high. I must here give a brief descrlp
tion of the jungle that we intended to
beat, lt must be known to the Prince
and Princess of Wales, our present
king and queen, as lt was the scene of
the famous khedda operations which
many attended In the spring of the
same yenr. Two miles north of Karkankote the road leading lo the foot
of the Xillghlrl Hills runs almost
parallel to the Kubbanl river, and
distant a few hundred yards from It.
The larger timber was mostly teak,
with fairly thick undergrowth. The
mnchans were placed in line running
at right angles from the road to the
river. Slops were put along the rive
bunk and at lhe edge of the jungl
ulong the roud. The former precaution was taken ns the natives reporteil
having seen the tiger swimming across
lhe river. The beaten were ussem

In Juno of last year 1 found that 1
could spare a little time from the
strenuous life I hud been leading as an
Alberlan prairie farmer, and at once I
began to look about for something that
would provide a thorough change. My
thoughts naturally turned towards a
trip across the Uocky Mountains into
beautiful    British     Columbia. One
could scarcely Imagine a more pronounced change from the bleak, treeless prairie than the fertile valleys and
flowing rivers, thick forests and snowcapped hills of British Columbia. Accordingly, my decision made. I journeyed from Calgary to Vernon, thero
lo pay u long-promised visit lo a
friend who had a fruit farm In that
part of the country. What u gorgeous
trip It wns across the mountains! No
words of mine can express tho beauty
and grandeur of lis scenery. I was
compelled to spend a night at Slca-
mous Junction to tuke tho branch lino
down the Ok aim gnu Valley. The
C. P. It, have built a magnificent hotel
on the banks of Khuswap Lake, uud
hud ll not been for Hit- mosquitoes l
should have liked to have made a longer slay thero, as the fishing in the lake
was in full swing al Ihe time. 1 found
thnt my friend at Vernon was as willing as I to lake a holiday, so after
spending a fow days on his furm wo
decided lo put In a fortnight camping
out and fishing on Sugar Lake, which
sheet of water is about sixty miles oast
of Vernon.
We collect ed our equipment and
borrowed a lent in Vernon, going on
from there to Lumby. l.umby Is a
small village reached by motor stage
and is ubout twenty miles on tho way
to the lake. We spent a couple of days
there fishing the numerous small
creeks surrounding It; the sport was
good though the fish were all small.
With considerable difficulty we succeeded In hiring a man wilh a team
und rig to take us thc balance of the
way. The latter part of the trail was
had and only fit for pack horses, we
wero told. However, we found a man
who was willing to try it, and we hud
tho wisdom to charter him for the return journey. It was hoth hot und
duBty, hut we made good time the first
twenty-five miles. After that It wi
wretched travelling. Just a rough
trail had hen made by the settlers for
sleighing In the winter time and some
of lho irees hud heen left a foot or two
high. In some cases we had to chop
those down and had also lo chop a
couple of windfalls out of the way,
The leasl said about the holes and
grades the better. Fortunately the
horses were willing and Iho rig strong,
so no harm was done. We arrived at
Inst on the banks of Shuswap river and
found our way up to Ihe lake, barred
by a swiftly (lowing creek, which our
driver refused to cross. We bundled
out our stuff, nnd ns the rig returned
to u slopping house about fifteen miles
on tho road home, we struck up to the
creek to try and find n wny across
without getting our blankets nnd provisions wet. Fortunately we found a
wlndfnll stretching right across tho
creek, and following a track for about
three-quarters of a mile we came to
the lake side. There we found an old
Norwegian living ln a log shack he
hud built himself. He was more than
seventy years old and had just taken
up u homestead there. Fancy going to
llvo alone sixty miles from a railroad,
hardships and Insecurrty'Vifa p?onoer!*i
llfe at that age! Yet tho old man was
as pleased with his homestead as a
child wilh a now toy, bul I trembled
to think what would happen to him
when some of tho ullmcnts ono
naturally associates with old ngo,
should attack him. He lent us his
boat to fetch our baggage up In. lt
was easy enough to take the boat
down, but when It came to pulling hor
up again heavily laden it was unother
mutter. We ouch took a turn at It, but
the current was too strong, und each
lime wo wore washed down stream and
bad to creep up the side again lo hang
on to a convenient tree. Wo could
hear the falls ronrlng about one-quarter or a mile lower down, so enrrlod
our stuff over the creek by bund to a
convenient site close tu the old Norwegian's shuck, where we pitched the
tent. 1 had no difficulty in bringing
the boat up empty the next day. It
was a beautiful flpol In which to camp.
Ity the lime we had things fixed up tho
old mnn had a delicious supper of fried
i rout aud fresh bannocks ready for us.
to which we did full Justice. After
supper we lighted a big firo and lav on
our blankets, pipes full on, nt ponce
with Iho world, wntchlng the flickering
(lames, listening to the oroaklng of the
frogs and dreaming of (he big fish Wfl
would catch on the morrow.
The following day, after a hourly
breakfast, we got off up lhe hike In the
bout. The hike Is about nine mllos
long by six wide wltb an island In the
middle, and Is fed liy the upper Shuswap river nud numerous creeks, off the
mouthfl of which there Is excellent
fishing. The weather was perfect and

We hnd two trolls out, a long and a

bul we got numerous smaller ones
varying from half a pound to throe
pounds. Some we caught trolling and
some wllh fly rods. I always think Ily
fishing Is much better sport and more
exciting than trolling, nnd would
rather catch a two-pounder with my
rod than a slx-pnunder on tho lino.
We landed at ltalnbow Creek und hnd
an enjoyable bath, though we had to

Tremendous Crowds Blockingthe Way to Finish
of Trenholm's Bankrupt Furniture Sale
EVERYBODY IS BUYING—ONLY A SHORT TIME LEFT for you to participate in the greatest merchandise
event ever held in Chilliwack.     The Assignee gets ready to give up the store.    The end is at hand at last.
Not for an hour since the sale began have we allowed it to lag. Whenever a lot sold down, or entirely out it
was replaced by another equally attractive. The entire stock from the warehouses is now on the floor. There
is something new to amaze the most economical buyers.    All our attempts at bargain giving pale into insigni-
ficence when compared with our price cutting for the tmd.
REMEMBER this sale closes in a few
weeks. First coiners get the cream of the bargains
Everything laid low for quick sale.
Don't fail to be on hand early.
The I. D. SfilTH CO. of New York and Vancouver, have determined to sell the balance of Trenholm's Bankrupt
Stock for what it will Bring.
