alterations about to be made to our store, we have decided to

( such au extent that more room is necessary and we have  ac-
' quired the premises.next door, now occupied by A'essrs. Duck

This means that the partition dividing the two stores
must come down, and unLss we can dispose of the dainty
garments, millinery, trimmings and fashionable shapes before
alterations commence, heavy loss wili result.
. Monday, July 20, is the opening day of this Great
Sale. Are you willing to take advantage of the immense
saving it means for you?
Watch our windows for bargains that will appeal to you.

"I will do so, sir."
Dawson had scarcely left the room
lieforu Siinningley appeared. One
glance at his face Caused Parkes to
turn deadly white. Siinningley shut
the door, turned the key in the look
nnd e.iiue deliberately forward. He
held the llllle black box In his band;
Parkes actually felt, himself shaking.
Siinningley put the box on the table
where Parkes wa3 sorting his letters.

"It Is a mare's nest, of course," said
Parkes, although, he did not believe
the words when he uttered them.

man of the world and yet a divine���
curious mixture; hut there are such
people, and I should havo singled hlin

Parkes did not speak; his anxious
eyes were fixed on Sunuingley's face.
After a pause, Siinningley continued:

however, we need not talk about tbat
just now; the girl ought to have about
one hundred uud fifty pounds a jear.
On that sum she need not starve.
Some day a good mnn will fall in love
with so sweet a girl, and she can marry; many a girl has married, on .ib
little. She can manage; 1 think so,
don't you?"
"I haven't the least doubt that she
will manage," said Siinningley, "but.
of course," he added, "she cannot possibly touch that money."
"What do you mean?"
"Just what I say. She cannot louch
it. Head the letters, and you will
agree with me."
Parkes felt himself huddling down
into the depths of his chair. Ile had a
most curious sensation, as though u
number of years had passed over his
head, as though he were feeling the
weight of hiB years and could not raise
himself to his normal height. lie hardly knew what to do.
Siinningley went to the door to answer a knock; he opened the door n
little way and bad a conversation with
the managing clerk.
"Say that my partner and I are specially engaged and can't Bee anyone.'
He then locked the dour and came
back. i
"Parkes," lie said, "I am sorry for
you, but moro sorry for myself, and
more sorry for tlie child. The child
will be my care If I can find her. You
and 1, Parkes, havo to face this thing.
There is danger, danger for the child.
Head the letters."
"Now?" said Parkes?"
"Well, of course; that child read
them all alone In the dead of night.
They affected the memory of her father; they affected���but you will know
when you have read them. Surely you
can stand reading them in broad daylight."
"Siinningley, can we do nothing
for her?"
"Read the letters, anil then wo will
talk about what we can do."
As Siinningley spoke, he opened the
box and put the first little packet of
letters before his partner. "There,"
ho said, "you're _ sharp man of business, you will soon see the drift of
tho thing."
Parkes began to read; Sunningley
waited. Once the lawyer began his
task, he got absorbed; soon he was
deeply interested. As he finished each
llttlo.plle of letters he pushed It back
lo Sunningley, who strapped it up
neatly onee more and gave him the.
next pile to peruse. By and by he had
read everything except tho letter
which was found In the thin drawer
at the bottom of the box. Now Siinningley touched a spring, opened tlie
drawer, and gave him the last letter.
This letter caused the partners to look
eneh at tho other.
"Well?" said Sunningley.
"My Cod, Sunningley! you are
"Yon could not say anything else,
could you?" was Sunuingley's response.
"Nothing. That poor child! It is
scarcely likely that she has returned
to U'orthlngton-on-thc-Hill."
"Our business," said Sunningley, "i3
to discover her."
"It is my impression that, she has
very little money.'' was Parkes' remark.
"We must take steps to discover her
without delay," said the other.
"Yes," said Parkes.
"Meanwhile." continued Sunningley, "these terrible letters, we must
think them over. It is the most downright terrible work that was ever put
into the hands of men like ourselves;
we've always kept clear of that sort
of thing, haven't, we?"
"We have."
The partners talked for a little long
er, then the elder man went out.
W. N. U. 1005
London wus such a complete change
in her, ihnl she felt reeling and could
acut'cely, for a time at least, contain
herself. While the clerk al Parkes'
and Sunuingley's wus searching tor
tills young girl she was herself pacing
Quietly up nml down In Mlchuroh
square, she knew nothing whatever
of this quaint liltle place, her finding
it was the merest chance. For a moment in' two she was certainly ihe only
woman iu thi. square, Tho men who
passed In and out. were "wlg-and-
gown" men. men also who had "taken
Bilk," but. no women seemed to have
anything io do with Allchurch square.
More than ona barrister stared ut lha
girl, noticed tho remarkable attractiveness of her small face, ond i ven turned to gliinco.nl her again, wondering
which lawyer's clerk she was wailing
for, why she hud come thus In the
middle of the day to disturb the clerk
lit bis duties.
Barbara, however, had her thoughts
vory far away; no body except her
lather filled her mind. She wauled to
put things Straight [or him, she felt
that she was doing so, and thai nothing else greatly mattered. Having,
however, gone through her agony, she
had at thnl moment, a sensation of almost pleasure. A load had been lilted from her heart, sin- could breathe
once again. Then she thought over
her own future', not. however, clearly,
nor even every steadily, she had
given up her inheritance, and sho bad
said good-bye to the homo of her life
and lo tlie friends of her life for ever.
She must not think of Ralph. It hurt
her to think of Ralph, it went to her
heart like a sharp knife, she was glad
he was out of Kngland, he could
never, never have anything to do with
lier in tlie future. When ho came
back he would forget her and he
could marry Margot, and Margot was
rich and would bring wealth to add to
his wealth, oh yes, oh yes! ho could
never marry little Barbara Chance,
never, never, never!
Tlie teal's dropped  from her eyes.
But in the meantime, what was she lo
do?    She thought and thought. Suddenly an idea illuminated her mind.

When Barbara Chance left the consequential offices of Messrs. Parkes

down a small laug and found herself
the next minute in a little square,
which was more or less hidden from
the public view. This square was i.c-

when I'd quite coffee I'd have a severe

"While visiting my mothor-inlaw I

for butter, for April, 27
per pound for butter, a rather
low figure, charging the patrons
an additional 1 cent per pound for
making aud marketing the butter
for these months, over the regular
figlir_ charged, namely, 4 cents
per pound for six wilder months,
and 5 cents per pound for six summer months, for the reason that
during the six or eight months
previous to May 1st. i_i<|, a large
quantity of new machinery had lo
be installed into the Cteamery to
replace machinery thnt Imd beeu
worn out in the service of nil patrons, this machinery being charged
to the manufacturing account,
payment for same covering quite a
period, the final payments being
deducted from the cheques for
March and April, as the Creamery
Directors thought it only fair that
all those patrons who had helped
to put this machinery out of commission, whet lit r they went over to
the Condi iisory, or remained with
the Creamery, should bear their
fair share of thisexpeuse. Ii must
be remembered that the directors
are responsible to the sharehclden
the actual cost being very near  the
5 cent mark.    Since that date the
local sales  have  increased  rapidly
until  now the Creamery's entire
output, (about one ton   per week)
is being sold locally with the actual
cost of making  anil   marketing  at
about 3 cents  per  pound,   which
menus increased returns '.o patrons. I
Another   p&int    of  advantage  to I
Creainery patrons is that butter has
recently been advancing in price,
wholesale price was 32c.   then   35c
until on July 13, the price jumped
to 40 cents per lb for  butter,   and
while selling at this price will give
patrons about 41 cents per  pound
butter fat, and they will retain the |
skimmed milk   to   feed   on   their'
While Sir, we admit that the I
cents Condensory is a good thing for the |
District, that il employs n far
greater nuiubtr ot hands than the
Creamery does, and we wish it
every success, so long as that success does not mean the permaueut
closing of the Creamery. Not
that we are afraid of ��� it closing
while we have men of Mr. Urqtl-
hart's business ability staying with
the Creamery, sending the cream
from over fifty of the Sliest Jersey
cows in the District. Mr. Urquhart gives me permission to state
that they do not have the slightest
intention of sending their milk to
the Condensory in spite of any reports that limy be circulated to the
contrary, and in conversation with
a most ardent supporter of t he
Condensory, Mr. Urquhart said,
"You are sending to tlie Condensory thai which you may not miss

come when you will miss it."

Condensed) 's 40 cents per pound
l'or butter fat,   and,  to do so intelligently it will be necessary to
use the manager of the Condensory'S figures,   with  due apology
for doing so.    Mr.   I'u'iar unsuccessfully tried to purchase  from  a
number of the  Creamery, pations
(myself anion? the  number)  their
separated  milk,  offering  for that
commodiate 3 1-2 cents per. gallon.
It takes the cream  from  a little
more than two gallons of milk  to
produce one pound of butter fat,
so that the Condensory patrons are
really receiving 32 cents per. pound
for butter fat, and 8 cents for the
milk   that goes along with  that
butter fat,   If that butter fat had
been made into butter at the Cream-
ery, a certain amount  of moisture :
must of necessity have been incor-
porated with  it to produce good
butter, the general average being
15 percent., but the Comox Creamery desiring tc place on the market
a No. 1 article, ciily  retain about
10 per cent,  moisture, with their
product, (this is the report of the
Government Analyst,) so that their
patrons sending 90 lbs.  of butter
fat to the Creamery,  get credited
with 100 lbs. of butter as  it makes
tl at amount of butter, for in testing
cr a u  with  the oil  test there is
p aclically no overrun,   whereas if
tbe  Babiock Test  was used   the
patrons    would   have   to   supply
actually about no lbs. of butter to
get credit for 100 lbs, 01 butter,
Therefore the patrons of one industry were receiving $32.00 for
loo lbs, of butter fat,  while those
patrons of the other industry were
receiving $27.00 for go lbs. of the
same commodity.   Now, Sir,  the
usual expenses of the Creamery are 1
about 3 cents per.   pound  for all
items of expense in connection with
the actual cost of making and box-
ing of butter ready to ship from j
the Creamery,   Buttermakers.  and j
Secetary'o salari.it, boxes,   wrappers,    fire-wood,   general  repairs,
insurance, interest  on capital invested etc.   In   addition   to  this
there is a cost of 2  cents per lb.
for every pound of butter shipped
from   the   District,    for   freight
and  commission   fees,  making a
total of nearly 5 cents, per  pound,
making aud marketing, the actual
cost being influenced materially  in
proportion to the amount shipped
out.    Previous   to May   1,   1914,1
the proportion to the act.al make I
shipped out was very small,  hence ���~"

Pensioning Teachers
California has just put into effect
a new teachers' pension law. Its
requirements are simple: First,
thirty years' service in public
schools; and second, the payment
of $360, or $i a month, for' thirty
years. The pension is $500 a year
to all who have taught thirty years.
The funds come from what the
teachers pay. the interest ou $75,-
000 given by two private organizations, and 5 per cent, of the State
inheritance tax. Thus there is no
tax on ai y living man or woman
save the teacher, but the teachers
are fairly well provided for. No
doubt Canadian teachers would
welcome a somewhat similar plan.

The Hiudus aboard the Komo-
gata Maru and the Vancouver police had a lively encounter on Sunday morning when a tug put out
to reprovisiou the boat on her return journey. The Hindus were
gathered along the rail armed with
coal and pieces of iron, which they
flung at the officers as soon as they
attempted to board. Many were
hurt more or less seriously, but iu
the end the police had to put back.
It was then decided to have the
Government Cruiser Rainbow come
over, and with a force of men subdue the Hiudus, aud to tow them
out into the Straits, but it was uot
found necessary as they gave up
the fight yesterday, and offered to
return to their own country, if the
immigration autnorities would grub
stake them home, This, of course
was immediately acceded to, and
they will set sail to-day.

the recent disaster at Hillcrest,

said that the nine was very gassy
and dusty, and as far back as July
19i2, he had condemned the ventilating system used, His examination of the of the mine since the
disaster had satisfied him that it
was iu even worse condition than
before,'apart from the effects of the
explosion, His evidence practically meant that the reversing of the
