Nevertheless he took his tea more

So   Maud   weni.
When she returned he could hardly
believe IiIh eyes.
Why, little girl, you do look shinning. Thero! there's no other word for
it.     What a lot of admiration you
will  gel!    The daughter of poor Sir
Richard ITanley, he added grimly,
They won't sny that, said Maud.

Run to Earth
At twenty minutes past nine there
was a sharp knock at No, 111, in tlit?
Tavistock Hotel. It was the private
silllng-i'ooni occupied by Mr. Muller,
who wns having his after-dinner cigar,
with a magnum of Leovllle, a favorite
claret of, his. by his side. He had
barely time to say: Come In, expecting t.o see the waiter, when Murray
Murgatroyd entered.
Muller glanced at the new-comer
with bis strong keen gaze, and then
flinging the cigar into the fire, balf-
Hinokcd, sprang to his feet.' For a
heavy man Muller was singularly agile. Ho read in the faeo of the Journalist that a fence was about to begin
without any buttons on the foils.
The two men Btood facing one another, half a dozen paces apart, with
only the corner of the table between
them. They were nol Ill-matched In
height and breadth of shoulders, but
Muller carried more flesh, and was the
older man by an appreciable number
of years. Intellectually, they were
both singularly capable antagonists,
Muller was the llrst to speak.
This Is un intrusion, sir; an unwarrantable Intrusion. It you have come
again about those papci'B, my answer
Is the same as before. I bave not
changed one whit. You shan't have
them, sir; more than that, If you do
not i|iilt this room, a private room,
the proprietor of this hotel ventures
to call It, Instantly, I will have you
turned out; and Muller advanced a
stop as il aboul to put. the threat Into
personal application Immediately.
Meantime Murgatroyd's quick eye
had been taking In the apartment. Mb
principal apprehension all along had
been lest Muller had deposited the papers and the incriminating plans and
maps elsewhere during that evening.
He did not fear the result If the documents bad not been put beyond his
reach. Murgatroyd's eye lightened
when he saw on a little table In the
window a small dispatch box, which
had evidently been recently taken out
of the portmanteau; for by its eldo
was a traveling writing-case. On tbo
dispatch box was clearly written to a
perceptive imaginationi Private documents, Inquire within, Murgatroyd
fully meant lo Inquire within. The
proof wns all the clearer to bis mind
by the fact that when Muller spoke
of papers his glance Involuntarily rested for a Becond on ihe dispatch box,
which was at right angles, about an
equal distance from each of them,
1 shall not, go, said Murgatroyd, until I have said what I have to say.
Neither will yon turn me out even of
your private room, ills toneB were
quiet, but very determined. He laid
a half-sarcastic emphasis on the last
two words,
We will see about that, exclaimed
Muller, taking a pace backwards towards the bell, which was an electric
button ou one side ot the fire-place.
He kept his ey?3 on Murgatroyd, although turning half from hlni.
I think you had better hear me out.
A touch of that bell will not bring
the person you expect, but some one
quite different, whom you do not expect.
Muller paused! There was something In the other's tone which convinced him In spite of himself.
I do not understand you, sir. Yon
have forced yourself Into my private
room; I order you to go out; I don't
want you; I havo heard what you have
to say before. Once for all, I hate
you and your country.
I am quite aware of that. Interposed
Murgatroyd, with still more sarcastic
Inflection of the voice,
IJ you do uot go out of the room, I
will have you chucked out of tbe hold. If uo one else does, 1 will do
It myself.
1 don't think you will-not if ynu are
wiiai is Hn- meaning of this bius-
nr'.' If 1 ring Ibis bell, of course the
servant who attends ui Ibis room ��ill
ou the contrary,
Who else should, pray?      Ynu seem
to hnve u powerful Imagination���most
Journalists have, i believe.
i ii ni nol Imagining now.
Muller flung mil iiii oath. lie bad
lliisln d llei'y rod lo his temples, Ihe
color showing  wine deep  through bis
blonde skin.
Say what you mean, sir. and hnve
done   wllh   It Who     would     enine,
piny 7
A gentleman who ought to be standing heie In my Blend, If I were mil
for reasons of my own, 1 confess, not
connected with philanthropy, or even
line of you   so lenient towards you.
Muller strode forward, until Hie two
men wero within nun's length ni ona
Murgatroyd did nol give an Inch.
Muller glared at him, bul he inok no
nol Ice, only showing by lhe linn sel
of his mouth, and the hard look of i
his eyes, tilth the tension of his self-
command was greal.
You really give yourself away loo
airily. You inlglil so easily have
made me llilnk It wns special regard
for niyseir which clothed you wllh
tills rare clemency. Perhaps after
this long Introduction you will condescend to enlighten me a llllle more.

A Remedy for Bilious Headache.���

Parmelee's Vegetable Pills arc recommended as tho way lo speedy relief.

on ihe inci ihut married men, de

Undoubtedly the lower death raip

Etymological   Dispute
A chefonyear Is a sort ot hut-tan.
Tain't nolhln' of the kind.      It's a
man what drives an auto.
If you were as strong, proportionately, a.i the beetle Is, and were a man j
weighing a couple of hundred pounds, |
you would be able to lift with ease
400,000 pounds. For a beetle can
lift a weight that is just 200 times its
own weight.
Or If you could jump about with
the Bame ease as the grasshopper
you could spring over the tallest building In the Chicago loop district without much effort.
Or, again, If you wanted to be nearly as Blrong as the bee you would
have to ilrng after you.a load weighing 4,000 pounds.
It. seems, apparently, from such observations made by naturalists that
the greater In olze the animal the
greater Is the nniBcular energy needed lo move It, nbout, and that there is
not much left for outside force.
How to Save Your Tires
A lire manufacturing company gives
Ihls advice about the care of motor
car tires:
The idea seems universal among motor car owners that lhe tire cost of
their equipment far exceeds all other
costs that they lave to deal with, it
Is true that the tire cost must necessarily be greater than any other cost
of running connected with the machine
but is far from necessary that tho
cost shall bear such a ratio to the
other expenses as is generally the case
This is especially true where pneumatic tires are used. If tires were
loaded only to the maximum loads
for which tbey were designed, If they
were kept inflated always to the pressure called for by thp tire manufacturer. If they were not run In ruts, if
they were properly and quickly repaired when damaged, and If they were
run on wheels which did not wobble,
their cost of upkeep would be cut In
A Way Some People Have
A doctor said:
"Before marriage my wife observed In summer nnd country homes,
coming In touch with families of varied means, culture, tastes and discriminating tendencies, that the families
using Postum seemed to average better than those using tea or coffee.
"When we wero married two years
ago, Postum wus among our first order of groceries. We nlso put In
some tea and coffee for guests, but
afler botli had stood around the pantry about a year untouched, they were
thrown nway, and Postum used only.
"Up to the i ge of 28 I had been accustomed to drink coffee as a routine
habit and suffered constantly from Indigestion and all Its relative disorders. "
Tea Is jiiBt as harmful because it
contains caffeine, iho same drug-
found In coffee.
"Since using Postum all the old
complaints have completely left me
and I somc'lmes wonder if I ever had

Co , Windsor, Ont Write for booklet, "The Road to Wellvllle."
Postum comes In two forms.
Regular (must be boiled)'
Instant Postum doesn't require boiling but Is prepared Instantly by stirring a level tep. spoon fill In an ordinary
cup of hot wa'.er, which makes It
right for most persons.
A big cup requires more and some
people wbo like Blrong things put In
a heaping sno-onful and temper it with
a largo supply of cream.
Experiment until you know the
amount that pleases your palnle and
have it served that way in the future.

Mlnard's Liniment Cures Distemper
One of the reasons why English is
expected to become a world language
is lhat English people refuse to learn
another. A correspondent sends the
following example: Al Muscat, at ihe
entrance to the Persian Gulf, there
lived for many years an Englishman,
supposed to be tlie only, or almost
Uie only Britsh resident, on the 1,500
miles of Arabian coastline from Aden
to Kowett. It would seem that he
could hardly have escaped knowing
Arabic, Yet he confessed that he
could nol speak a dozen words of
that language.
But how do you carry on your trade
some one asked,
Oh, be replied, the beggars have lo
learn  English.
Desired to Know
What ou earth are you talklnf
aboul ?
I don't know. '
Then why do you talk?
To find out.
Find out?

is now twenty years since iliey placed
a steamer ou Okanagau Lake that was
far beyond the capacity required at

made before there was business
enough io justify the expenditure.
Any Bottler on the shore of Okanagau
Lake had only to moor a log or two
at the shore to serve as a wharf and
display a white flag when he wanted
tlie bout to call, and he and his little
bit of produce or belonging:, was taken aboard. The mining Industry In
the Boundary was fostered along the

of life or death to mi.e owners to
determine whether the low grade ores
of tho Boundary could be made to
yield a profit, the C.P.U. did their

ihe House of Commons for obstruction, said In New York the other day:
Vou,- multi-millionaires are the glibbest lol of hypocrites that history has
ever seen. With one hand they
make the gestures for a Sunday School
address, and with the other baud they
pick the people's pocKets.

Rainy Weather Made Popular
Oue of the large London Insurance
companies has lately Issued a novel
Insurance policy against bad weather.
It is primarily for the benefit of travelers who make, trips in the spring
and summer through England, and
who complain if their trips are spoiled
by variations of weather.
These policies are called, naturally
enough, rain policies. The more you
pay the greater, ot course, is your
compensation If it rains. Y'ou can
pay $5 a week, and if It happens to
rain for more than two days out of
seven you get, $40 for each such week. J
There aro four different classes, and
all are arranged proportionately to
the amoiii.l paid down .
Woolen Cloths
The lirst woolen cloths manufactured in Kngland were produced by a
colony of seventy families of Dutch
cloth-workers, who landed In Kngland
July 26, In the year 1331. having been
induced to settle In Kngland by a liberal grant from Edward III. Worsted manufacture was commenced In
Norfolk a few .years later, and the Industry so launched soon reached large
proportions. Every effort waa made
to protect the infant industry, and In
1488 it was enacted that no cloth
but of Wales or Ireland should be Imported Into England. In the seventeenth century, during the reign of
Charles II, a law was passed that all
persons should be burled In woolen
cloths. In 1700 an act was passed
by parliament, prohibiting the importation Into England of Indian muslins,
chintzes, and cottons, which were
threatening to supplant woolen cloths
In popularity. It was not until the
lasi century that cotton replaced wool

Alfalfa Fireguards
Much of the loss to crops, buildings

railway fires In cultivated sections of

combustible crop on a strip of land
adjacent,  to  railway  rights  of way.
Alfalfa Is suggested In this connect- j
Ion, since this crop will not burn and
a narrol strip will form a thoroughly
efficient fireguard.    Where clover can
be grown successfully, it will answer i
equally well.      Tho growing of potatoes, beets, or other root crops will j
serve the same purpose, where local
market conditions will permit.    This
would he a step In the much to be desired direction of diversified farming.
