She lookpdj --lir closed llic Ooor!
Mid stood slill. her hand holding the1
door ns though slu- would protect
the secret it had liiddcn. To look at
her, she might have been Bluebeard's
wifc, discovering llie dead women
hanging i�� a row. But the closet was
an ordinary hanging closet, with
shelves at one side, The liglit of
day admitted to il revealed a number of garments hanging from pegs;
shelves full of fiats and scarves and
veils and all sorts of feminine frippery. On the floor of thc closet were
rows of shoes, small and dainty. A
pair of grey silk stocking lay flung
between ihein. Some other pretty
things had been thrust into llieir
shelves by a hasty or careless hand.
A grey dust lay over everything.
She slared al tlio contents of the
Closet, as though she saw a row of
dead women hanging there. A noise
nl the outer door interrupted her.
She looked scared out of life. Hastily she locked the closet door, dropped lhe keys iu hot- pocket and wenl
to open the. door to Dolly, who was
rapping- sharply. '
The girl was trembling. She had
had a sudden fear that she might cn-
rounter Cooper in the corridor while
slur waited at the door.
She sprang inlo Kate Bartlett's
arms like a frightened doe, and the
woman comforted her, feeling the
terrified heart thump against lier side
while she held the girl.
"Oh, Kale," Dolly whispered. "1
was so frightened when 1 could not
find yor.i nor get in. If 1 was to bo
left, lo him the mere terror would
kill me."
"Vou shall nol be left to liim, my
pretty girl," the woman said, smoothing baok the hair which had lost so
much of ils life and lustre. "I shall
wait no longer. This very day we
shall make our escape. 1 could never forgive myself if I had waited too
long."
They wont downstairs, talking in
whispers, silent as ihey passed Cooper's door. The escape was a simple
matter, so long as hc did not appear on the scone. Margot had the
key of tiie gate or knew where it was
kept, If she would not give it up
then force must be used. Kate Hart-
let had no doubt of her own power
'u overcome llur frail lillle woman.
although mad women like Margot
could Fi tt 111 wilh desperate energy she
had heard. Tlio thing was to tlo it
quietly, so that the man upstairs
should nol hoar.
She was ihinking how she should
set aboul ii wilh Margot, with whom
she had boon unable to establish any
communication so far.
Sho opened the door of the sallc
a manger, There was no one there.
The dusk was beginning lo fall. She
passed ihr,nigh the door lhat lid lo
the scullery and looked out, averting
In r eyes carefully from Iho half-glass
door and tho woodshed. There was
no one there Sho glanced al lhe
poi,' where Margot hung her clo;ik.
li was empty.   Margot was gone
She snl down with a sudden sense
of irretrievable calamity, turning' her
siclt .unl dizzy. Sho had wailed loo
long, li came over hor thai sho had
lost lur moment, Then- was a niovc-
iijctil in. the room overhead where
Cooper was. Something fell and
was sh.illrinl lo pieces. Was lie
cominp down? She had waited too
long. Sh. listened wilh tlio oars of
;i hare, 'Iini.- was no further sound,
I'm- days she had known lhat he was
steadily nonring iho danger point.
Who should know if mil she? She
had waited. Why had she been such
a fool lis to wait? l>h, I.ord have
nn rev! sho eriid volcelcssly when
she tlioughl ''I the helpless girl in
lur charge. She had betrayed her
trust. God help Inr, she, had betrayed hor trust 1

htm, one for her, one for her oliild.
If  that  must he.     If there was  onlv
lliat way she wns prepared lo lakr
il���lho. least she could do since she
had wailed too long. Ch, Lord, she
had waited too long.
Not a sound, lie must have lain
down again, \\hile she had listened
she looked at hor hands, drearily,
seeing, yet not seeing them,
While the tension of her face and
lier acute listening relaxed she heard
a. sound downstairs. Someone was
lapping on ihc front door, insistently,
peremptorily, There was that in lhc
ottnd of thc quick, sharp tapping
which suggested haste, yet basic lhat J
'   da need of being stealthy.
Very quietly she crept downstairs,
s. Ilding one look in the direction Ot
Dolly's room, thc door of which she
knew was locked rind boiled till she.
gave the familiar signal which would
admit her, As she passed by a window it rattled ominously, The wind
sighed outside, rose and fell, clapped
ils invisible wings and sank to quietness. There was going to hc a
storm.
She wenl on downstairs, something
like hope stirring in her heart. Who
could it be that knocked? Someone
must have gained admittance, Perhaps after all, it was not too late.
She had not waited loo long. If but
the child were safe, she did not care
what became of her. Lord have
mercy 1
She opened the door, which flew
back with a bang. The wind and
rain came in her face. Outside stood
Margot, carrying a lantern. She had
come back again. The gale outside
banged in the wind. So it was open.
Thc way was free. If only hor child
were here, and not upstairs where at
any moment Cooper might make his
appearance! She measured Margot
with her eye. Whal did the little
mad creature want? How was she
going to keep her quiet till they escaped, so that the man overhead
should not hear, as he would hear if
there was a struggle?
An amazing thing happened.  The
deaf and dumb woman .spoke.
"Is tho young lady ready?" she
asked, in a whisper, "ll is time for
her lo go. I will tell vou lhat 1. am
not deaf and dumb. He said thai I
was lo pretend that it was so. 1 haf
been lo Anglaud and I know the
Anglish, Bring her al once, I will
lell you. There is no lime lo explain,
as you say."
Kate Bartlett fled upstairs, hei
heart heating in her side and a pulse
thumping in her head so that she
could hear nothing, though the house
seemed full of sounds. She gave the
five quick taps on tho panel of llio
door, It seemed an eternity before
she_ was admitted, Her heart kept
crying, "Hurry! hurry!" and thumping in her side and her head.
"Conic at onco," she whispered,
"The way is open. Take anything,
anything. Your slippers. Thoy will
have lo do. No give me your hoots.
Vou can put Ihem on as soon as we
arc free of the house. Only, for
heaven's sake, come. Oh, God help
us!"
They stole softly downstairs.
There was Margot vailing by the
door wilh her lantern, wearing lhe
scared look that came to her with thc
darkness.
They wont out, closing lhe house
door sofllv behind Ihem. The room
in the gable in wliicli Cooper slept
showed tho light Kate had loft there
an hour or Iwo before
There was some ��� sound iu Ihe
house. Thc banging of a door perhaps. Ah, tha't was it. They had
forgotten lo close the door of the
damask room behind them. What
folly! If Cooper were, aroused he
'would know at once lhat tlicy were
gone. Out of the confusionof Kate
Bartlett's thoughts ono thing had
emerged. She must lock the pate behind hor on the chance that Cooper
would have, mislaid his key. It would
give them a little time perhaps, if he
should discover lhcy had gone
follow them.
But lo do that was impossible
Margot, as though lhe wits wcrc
frightened oul of her, had (led
llirougli tho gale and down the road |
thai led lo Audigiiac and the sea.
Thoy could sec her lantern, bobbing
like a will o' lhe wisp before ihein.
Suddenly il went out,
Tlicy overlook her. She was panting and sobbing with fear, ll was
some lime before thev could reassure !
her, persuade hor of iheir identity,:
lhal lhcy were living people audi

Prairie Live Slock  Increasing
The live stock outlook in Western '
Canada is very bright..  Our. fanners
are making every effort to get more
extensively into live stock,
The principal handicaps arc lack of
buildings, fences and capital. But
wonderful progress is being made
and these handicaps are being overcome. Our department of agriculture has already distributed eight
cars of cows and heifers thin year.
These, animals are sold to fanners
ou time. The. high price of feed is j
having some effect, but there i.s a
steady increase, and the desire, to
increase the numbers is universal.- -

Soldier Priests
���More Than 25,000 Priests Fighting in
Trenches in France
In France more than 25,000 priests
and church students arc fighting in
the trenches, when they are not ministering to their dying companions-
iu-arms. They arc serving as common soldiers with knapsack and rifle
and their presence heartens the. poi-
lus when they go over the top.
"They are not chaplains," says
Sterling Heilig, in the New Orleans
Times-Picayune. "They arc simple
soldiers by universal military service law, without choice, in the name
of equality. They look like soldiers,
they are soldiers, bul���a form
crawls among the wounded on the
battlefield at'-dusk and murmurs: 'I
am a priest. Receive absolution. Bc
til peace."
The writer believes thai much of
Ihc heroic otirage that has been displayed by the French soldier may be
traced to thc fact that fighting side
by .side with them are these men of
the  church.���The   Literary  Digest.
Increase Our Average Yields
Facts and Factors Making  for  Success or Failure
The average yields of Canada's
grain crops can bc doubled in quantity by thc application of more care
in seed selection, and just a ilttlc
more labor and skill in tillage. And
what is perhaps of even greater importance than quantity, is quality of
product. The 50 per cent, yield will
usually be. of inferior quality, so that
the loss involved in raising the small
or poor crop, is two-fold. The gain
in producing the large or 100 per
cent, yield is also two-fold���a gain
not only in amount or quantity but
also in quality and hence in enhanced market value bushel for bushel.
It is in the large yields thai profits
arc made; the smaller yields many
and ofttiines do incur actual loss.
There are facts and factors making
for success or failure which arc apt
lo be ignored or overlooked, and yet
which are of vast and vital import to
tlie individual, the, community and
tlie nation, signally so in this time
of shortage and of abnormal expenditures.
The conditions lhat count for success and ultimate independence for
the farmer arc: Thoroughness and a
fair degree of skill in his work and
intelligent, economic management of
his affairs..���W. J. Way.

Wonderful Completeness of the Telephone System
lu the British army, the engineer
regiments are not limited lo sap-
pciV work. For instance, the Royal
Engineers' Signal Service lias
charge of lhe telephone lines that
cover northern France. Here is an
incident illustrating the wonderful
completeness of the system:
A company commander was lying
out in No Man's Land on a scouting
expedition. He had his field telephone with him, aud when lie picked
it up to talk to his headquarters
something went wrong, so that his
line was connected with lhe chief
central's office. Immediately he
heard a voice say: "What number
were you calling?"
He was so startled that he gave
his own telephone number in. London. Two minutes later he heart! his
wife's voice amid the roar of the
German guns.���Writer in the New-

You say lo the drug store man,
"Give me a small bottle of freezone."
This will cost very little but will
positively remove every hard or soft
corn or callus from one's feet.
A few drops of this new ether compound applied directly upon a tender, aching corn relieves the soreness
instantly, and soon the entire com or
callus, root and all, dries up and can
bc lifted off with the fingers.
This new way to rid one's feet ot
corns was introduced by a Cincinnati
man, who says that frc.zonc dries iu
a moment, and simply shrivels up the
corn or callus without irritating the
surrounding skin.
Don't let father die of infection or
lockjaw- from whittling at his corns,
but clip this out and make him try
it.

Claims of Education
War is a great educator. Onc of
thc lesson 5 which it lias forcibly
driven home is the need for the application of science to industry if a
nation is to hold its own in lhc modern world. A transformation has
come ovcr the attitude of all classes
in the community, and not least the
men of business, towards the claims
of education.

growth, it must yield to Holloway's
Corn Cure, the simplest and best
cure offered to the public.
Gramaphones in the War
Three hundred gramaphones are
divided among lhe Canadian troops
in France alone. Gramaphones will
also accompany the Uniled States
soldiers, and as a start a New York
man has bought seventy-five of them
to be sent across to iPershing's men
as Ins personal contribution, through
the Y.M.C.A.
Mr. Bradt,   general     manager   in
Canada of a gramaphone   company,
| says that the war lias not hit    thc
I gramaphone industry to any serious
| extent, and in Canada business    has
I advanced wonderfully.      As    an  in-
I stance, last June's sales wcrc 127 per

A Dangerous Patriot
Maxim Gorky, who in an eventful
career, has been a jack-of-all-tradcs,
turnspit, hewer of wood, and the
famous author that all the world
knows, is now, unfortunately for his
country, a politician and a journalist. The policies of Gorky spell
anarch}-, Maximilianism, Leninism,
anything except national defence.
lSoitrlzelT. who certainly cannot be
suspected of rcactiona-jr tendencies,
says that Gorky as a politician is the
blindest of the blind and has dealt
some terrible blows at the foundations of Russian life,
From the so-called hydrocarbon
shales of Colorado and Utah may
come gasoline for motor cars. Examination of these shales by thc
United States geological survey indicate that the distillation of shal-
from beds over three feet thick ta
Colorado alone will vield more than
20,000,000,000 barrels of crude oil.
from which morc than 2,000,000.000
barrels of gasoline can be extracted
by ordinary methods. However,
there probably will be no shale gasoline manufactured until the present
methods of obtaining gasoline make
the product so expensive that tha
big majority of motorists are unable to buy it.

Germans Surprised in India

Some day I am going to send you

camp is growing all thc time, and f
hope il will . ontinue to grow-. The

and 1 hope that before long they will
be filled with people from German

Taking the Toll
Germany Must in Due   Course   Restore Conquered Territory
France paid too, and paid heavily
but now, after I? mouths have gone,
takes that for which she paid. Now
the weight of artillery i.s with her.
Eur it is not only artillery. The.
spirit of France lives in the "extraordinary patience of the French soldier, which, combined with his cx-
ccllent physique, makes his mind
and body so tintired in spile of the
tn mendous menial and bodily strain
of the war that lie seems today just
jas full of energy and even more dc-
I terinincd than in thc first enthusiasm
of the rush into Alsace and Lorraine." Verdun was always the key
of the defense of France. In the
last few days one after another of
the bastions of that defense, which
Germany won in the spring of 1916,
have been regained. There is in this
lhc whole hope and confidence of lhc.
alliance. What Germany has won
and still holds she wilt in due, course
bc made to restore; that, and more

ABOVE ALL OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
ADVANTAGE NOW  UN THE SIDE OF THE ALLIES
No Relaxation of Military Effort Can Be Contemplated While the
(iennan Government Remains Obdurate, and All the Energies
Oi the Nation Must 15c Directed to the Onc Great Purpose
This was thc rallying ery of the
llritish iireniiei: : i a meeting in London on Thursday last���"Concentrate
upon victory I" il comes with inspired force at a time when tho distractions of internal problems incident to
thc war threaten to divert the attention of Canada from her .unrctnc
lask, the planting of the (lag of Liberty un thc ruins of despotic militar-
inn. Ai ilu lime Mr. Lloyd (ieorgc

The eaiiying mi uf the war is a
duly that transcends all (Questions of
national import. It is a necessity
imposed upon nations lhat. value their
spiritual heritage and which are truly
loyal lo the fundamental verities of
liie ami progress. The nation or
people that elects to shirk the perils
and the sacrifices of a defensive war
in which life and honor and civilization itself are al slake has pronounced its own doom, Never in the
world's history has the issue been
so clearly defined; never in her past
career bas Canada espoused a cause
with greater certainty that_ Right is
on her side. Varying motives sway
the allied nations in their light witli
Germany, but all are uniled by a
common danger to national security.
Together they stand; divided they
fall. It is this common ground of
quarrel with Germany lhat makes
place impossible while the particular aims of any of the allied nations
remain unsatisfied. German statesmen have endeavored to disseminate
the false notion lhat the war continues in order lo satisfy the ambitions of Great Britain; that Russians,
I'rench and Italians are shedding
their blood in vain to satisfy Brilish
greed and aggrandizement, But Mr.
Lloyd George has been quick to
point to the real cause of the continuance of lhe war: thc declaration of
lhe Girnian foreign secretary that
Germany would never contemplate
the making of concessions to France
tespecting Alsace-Lorraine. The
Hriiish premier has made it clear that
uot Belgium only, but Alsace-Lorraine must bo unconditionally surrendered by Ihe Teuton. France, has
made colossal sacrifices to maintain
her Hag in Europe. She never can
feel safe against attack in the future
while German troops hold her lost
provinces. To the insolent challenge
of Germany the British nation replies with war and more war, unlit,
as Mr. Lloyd George declares,
France has "redeemed her oppressed
ehildren from the degradation of a
foreign yoke."
Mr. Asqiiith was equally emphatic
that no relaxation of military effort
can bc contemplated while the German government remains obdurate,
While lhe desire for peace at any
price is spreading among the German people, there are no signs of
reasonable compromise on the part
of the kaiser and bis advisers, who
have tried lo sow discord between
Britain and France, Mr. Asqiiith
says:
German diplomacy is not celebrated for deftness, but even in its
analysis il will be. difficult to find a
more clumsy or more transparent
manoeuvre than lhis maladroit attempt to sow discord between ourselves and our French allies. Von
[Cuchlmanu relegates the Belgian
question to a secondary position.
"1 have formerly asked whether
Germany was ready to restore Belgium in the only real sense acceptable to the allies, but 1 have received no answer, and von Kuehlinami,
who ran be boisterously definite and
precise concerning Alsace-Lorraine,
preserves regarding Belgium au unbroken but significant silence,"\
11 is Germany thai blocks the road
lo peace. Tin- advantages are now
on llie side ni llle allies. Of litis
there is no longer any doubt. tin
Ihis point il is well to recall lhe
words of Mr. Asqiiith in hi* speech

Forestry Operations
When War is Over
Europe and America   Must   Adopt
Scientific Reforestation
Principles
Canada alone lias sent more, ihan
10,0(11) men overseas in forestry battalions. Besides, many men already
overseas have been formed inlo forestry companies. These facts alone
show thc importance of au adequate
supply of timber for military operations.
These foresters are working in
both England and France. While
exploitation is the first consideration
in the cutting operations to supply
thc timber so urgently needed in
modern trench warfare,, the interests of lhc future arc being considered, so far as practicable.
The cutting iu Great Britain is,
however, so close that the satisfactory re-establishment of lhc forest
can he; expected only as a result of
extensive planting operations, It is
even now being urged that definite
plans bc formed at once for lhc systematic reforestation of the large
areas of non-agricultural lands in
Great Britain that will have been
despoiled of their forest for war
purposes. Undoblitedly, the present
situation will greatly stimulate thc
adoption of a broad-gauged policy of
governmental forestry in Great Britain after the war.
In France, heavy cutting of timber for war purposes has also taken
place. France, however, unlike Great
Britain, has for many years pursued
a systematic policy of scientific forest management, including reforestation. Her forests have suffered severely as a result of war operations,
both by the allies and the enemy,
but it will be accepted as a matter of
course lhat this damage will he repaired after the war, through systematic planting, as rapidly as .circumstances will permit.
In Canada, the war has thrown a
greatly increased burden upon our
forcsis, particularly those suited for
the manufacture of pulp and paper,
'lhe pulpwood supplies of lhc Eastern .States are becoming rapidly depleted, and it becomes of lhe greatest importance tu Canada that the
productivity of her foresi arias be
retained, so that, for all lime lo conn-,

agricultural lauds. This means increased efficiency iu forest fire protection, Inward which wc hnve an excellent beginning, bill with the goal
rrlill far in advance, ll means also the
adoption of stricter regulations governing cutting.
Only by lhc adoption of these
measures can our forests be made

Discussing the possibility for permanent peace after thc war, Lord
Robert Cecil, minister of blockade,
told the Associated Press that the
United States, Great Uritain and
France must find some way of exterminating the German war baron class
which finds war a profitable business
and spends its peace time energy in
inciting war,
'The central powers have bcrn
kept in lhc war so long," said Lord
Robert, "not merely by the German
military caste but by the classes
who get rich out of war���the vultures of commerce and industry. The
military caste of Germany we shall
convince by force of arms, but the
commercial vultures we must attack
in their pockets and teach them that
war is not a profitable business.
"That is partly the business of the
blockade, but a blockade by itself
will not do everything. We must go
further and cut off the overseas
branches of the war barons in tha
far East, South America and elsewhere. The American 'Trading with
the Enemy Act,' is admirably conceived for the purpose of cramping
this business, but more must still be
done. These vultures cannot carry
on wilhout relations outside of Germany. The great source of their
power has been their financial connections with neutrals. Without financial connections they lose credit
and  wilhout credit tlicy  are  done.
"New York has enormous international financial strength, so l'.na
London, and so has Paris. I don't
know exactly how this power can
be applied to the question under consideration, but I am anxious that
tbe matter should be confined in
those centres. Surely our combined
financial strength is sufficient to
smother these international vulture,
if wc act together."
Fight Against Weariness
No Time to Think of Rest Until the
War Is Over
We must fight against weariness.
It is unworthy oi us. We must neither write, nor talk, nor think about
being weary till we have won the
war. Wc at home have one clear
duty, namely, lo support by every
means in our power moral and mat-
terial, our sons, who are bearing
themselves so heroically before the
enemy. They are not weary, and we
have no right lo bc weary either.
"We are at the parting of the'ways."
One road leads to victory, the other
to defeat. These arc the only two
roads open to us, and we have got
to choose between them. All talk
about a third road through Stockholm, Koine, or elsewhere is a device of the enemy to saye his own
neck. Weariness won't help us to
victory. Courage, resolution, endurance will. Did Pitt tire after Aus-
terlilz, or Wellington after_ Burgos?
Nay, but arc the French tiring now?
