The Squire's
l__.oa. Ms_ttiii_-. wj : <-���.!���
��� She turned about anel went ip,
closing the door behind lier, and the
Squire,went on his way, wondering
about Mrs. Qartlett's mystery anel
tlie sorrowful story that was apparently hers.
Hilary  Strangways was at  Silvcr-
thorne  Manor  for  tlio  Easter vaca-
[ lion. He had just got into thc F.O.,
and was finding London a remarkably pleasant place. Thc chimney-
piece of his sitting-room in the little
flat in Jerniyu Street held a considerable number * of invitation cards.
Hilary, at present, had not learned
to distrust his world, and had not
considered why he should be so much
iu demand; else he might havc discovered lhat he was run after to sonic
extent because people were tracing
that since Mr. Mcyrick had not married he was little likely to marry
now; so that. Hilary was coming
more and more to bc accepted as lhc
heir to Silverthorne Manor and the
snug rent-roll that went with it.
Hilary might havc a very gay'time
in London, but it had not spoilt him.
Indeed, hc had been popular all llis
days without getting spoilt,    lie had
I been a placid  yet  rowdy and  merry
| child, adored by the servants and dependents  generally;  he had becn an
; ideal schoolboy, playing the game always, and with a radiant good humrir
lhat carried him through all his
scrapes. No one could long resist
his turned-up nose and the appeal oi
his clean, bright fact-, lie exuded
happiness wherever he went, and he
was correspondingly loved. At lhc
early dances which he had attendetl
in the weeks between Christmas and
Lent, he had danced indcfatigably,
with a delight In the dancing for its
own sake; had diffused agreeableness
wherever he went; had made many a
wallflower happy; had pressed many
hands, and looked into many eyes
with a roguish kindness which    pre-
(Cuii tinned.)
"I should like a lillle dog; if I got
liim young enough, he wouldn't (|ii_r-
rel with the pussy. He'd let inc
know when people wcrc coming. 1
shall be too hard at work to kt-rrp
looking from behind the curtains.''
He remembered the st-nsc he had
had while he waited at the door of
being observed, of having eyes upon
"I shall send or bring you a p.U"**V.
They are Abcrdccns, very faithful to
their owner, Indifferent to the rest of
Uie world. Don't let the cat scratch
"She's a young thing yet. They'll
bc company for each other. Oh, sir,
I don't know hovA to thank /ou.
Your Aberdeen sounds good; faithful to one; indifferent to all the rest.
I shall be like a queen."
She went with him to the door,
remembering that she had not (hanked liim for this and that thing. Mi..
Brown had equipped the lodge as 'or
cue of the reduced ladies, putting
into the cupboards and the pantry all
that would be- needeel. The coal cellar was stocked. She had plenty of
everything to go on with. Presently
sho wouhi find her own supplies.
"What's out there, sir?" she asked
cf the Squire, unhealing lhc high
wall, with ihe chevaux dc (rise of
���harp glass a-top.
"The village���Silverdale."
"1 thou, lit it was a village by the
noise, il made me feel happy to hear
il���with the wall between."
The Squire frowned upwards disapprovingly.
"Il is rather a wicke'd wall," he
Raid. "I am not responsible for *t
1 hate that glass. It'was there before my time. Silverdale boys were
lend cif apples, like oilier boys. '.' t
the way, i was about lo have a wicket made in the wall. You could
keep il looked if you liked, ll would
be so much easier for your shopping
and sei much h *s lonely."
"Oh, for heaven's-sake, sir, no wicket," she snid. "It would spoil everything,   1 love that wall."
The Squire laughed at the intensity of the speech, There was something about the woman���something
pleasant which made him forget the
scarred face when he was not looking al it. She had femininity, Ihc
thing, lacking which, many a pretty
woman is no more than a scentless
flower, without honey fur the bees.
"Very well, then," he saitl; "there
shall bc no wicket, You will have to

keeping along the shrubbery patli by

by lhe lodge gates, Mrs. Gutty's.

Slid ty all druggisti in Canada and
throughout the -uorld
vented any harm being done. Altogether Hilary was the good guest lo
many a hostess in (rouble about her
dancing men. The season was likcly
to afford him more gaieties than lie
would know what to do witli; for
he found it difficult lo say "No" to
an invitation from a woman.
He came back to Silverlhorne, as
he had come back to it from Eton
for all Ihose happy summer vacations.
He had been the Squire's own boy
since lie was eight years old; when
his parents, who had sent him home
from India three years previously,
had been drowned by lhc bursting of
a dam, which had ended everything
for t li cm at the moment when they
were gelling ready for the visit home
lo which they had been looking forward wilh a passionate anticipation.
Like the Eton buy, Hilary had been
all round the house and thc gardens
before hc was many hours at home.
He had talked with everyone���kissed Mrs. Brown while he reminded,)
l.cr of various misdeeds of his boyhood; whisked Caroline, the cook,
who was gelling very short of breath
and ralhet cranky, into a wild dance
round the kitchen; picked the best
camellia in the hothouses for his button-hole, while old Sutton, the head
gardener, who thought Silverthorne
gardens and all Ihey possessed his
exclusive properly, smiled sourly, yet
The house was always different
when Hilary came home. Vie was
incorrigibly boyish and school-boyish. While Hilary was away, life
seemed somewhat suspended at the
Manor House. The Squire had all
the occupations of a country gentle-'
man. He sat on various boards tntl
benches. Hc was a churchwarden.
He shot and limited, and did the other things other men of his class did.
even if he did them somewhat languidly to his inner consciousness.
From his long devotion to a sick mother he had learnt a way of going
through life soft-foot. And the companionship of a gentle little ghost
like Mary Champncys, with her spiritual eyes, her cloudy hair, iier wistful smile, told for quietness. Wherefore the servants wcrc wont to complain that you never rould fell whether the master was in the house or
out of it; Brady, the Irish groom,
would say from lime to lime that
he'd give anything if the master'd
cursed hiin now and again as tltc old
Colonel used to do at home in Mayo;
and the Irish horse, hc felt sure, was
as lonesome as himself for a bit of
strong talking to.
Hilary had heard all about the accident in detail, and about Mrs, Bartlett and he.r occupation of the old
lodge. He was insatiable for nt|As
of everybody. When it came to llic
Souths���Margaret had not answered
his last letter, he complained ��� the
Squire's brows took a line of pain
and bewilderment. After a lull the
talk about Lady South hail broken
out again, and worse than before. Tl.e
strange gentleman, Mr. Langton, if
that was his name, had reappeared on
the scene, not staying this lime, liul
coming for a few hours at a time. He
apd Lady South had been seen together, walking and talking in little-
frequented places, with Margarei
somewhere not very far off, keep!1 ^
There were so few strangers at Sil-
vcrelale that everyone was agog to
know all about one when he appeared. Lady South's visitor was a person not to be forgotten once seen���
lall and dark, clean-sllaven, distinguished, with a somewhat worn,
handsome face. The Squire had
conic upon him and Lady Soi.lh onte
in thc woods, and she had introduced him nervously; there had been a
perceptible pause -before the name.
They had spoken a few words, and
llie Squire had gone on, leaving lilt
two sitting on the scat by the poinl,
in tlie damp of the winter day, Lady
South's delicate skirts trailing in the
sodden leaves and wet grass. She
had . looked miserable, poor thing,
witli blue shadows about her lips, ht-
eyes bright and feverish, a licclic
spot in her cheek that spoke of pain.
They hati heen debating something
eagerly when lhe Squire appeared,
the man apparently pleading, the woman looking down immovable at the
dead leaves under her pretty shoes.
The Squire was almost certain an
he moved away that Margaret eluded
him, glieliiig qiliakly down :i gamekeeper's path through the thick undergrowth, lie might have been
sure if he had wished; but he had nol
wished; he had walked away with a
trouble iu his heart. Was the peior
thing being pushed ovcr the precipice
by thc brutality of her wicked old
I" -hand? anil was?���ah, no, it ivis
beyond ihinking thai J.aeiy South
could involve her young dan. li ler in
anything questionable. When lie
thought of Margaret's clear eyes he
said to himself that no matter bov
things looked, be must believe lhat
there was a sufficient and an innocent

Unfamiliar Uses for Wood
Science Is Constantly Finding   New
Uses for Wood Products
In addition to thc ordinary uses of
wood with wliicli we arc familiar,
mankind is dependent upon tlie forest for a variety of products whose
appearance does not indicate their
origin, say members of lhe Federal
Forest Service. Numerous as these
products are, and as extensive .is is
their use at the present time, science
is constantly learning new constituents wliicli eiilcr into the make-up of
wood and is finding new lists to
which these constituents and those
already known can bc put.
Charcoal, as everyone knows, is
essential for the manufacture of black
powder, All of the acetone used as a
solvent in making nitrocellulose powders is derived from acetic acid, a
product of hard-wood distillation.
Ureal Britain, it i.s saitl, is dependent
upon the Uniled States for acetone
used in making cordite, Black walnut is a standard lor gunstocks, and
has been so much in eiemaiid for the
past two years lhal our supply of this
valuable wood has been considerably
reduced and olhcr woods, notably
birch, arc being substilutcd, From
Europe comes the complaint lhat
there is a shortage of willow for
making wooden legs.
By converting cellulose, one of the
elements of wood, into a gelatinous,
material, known as viscose, a wide
held is opened up for the utilization
of wood waslc, and a new line of
products, varying all the. way from
sausage, casings to tapestry, is added
to. the already lengthy list. Many oi
the so-called "silk" socks, neckties
and fancy braids now on Ihe. inarkcl
contain artificial silk made from
About nine-tenths of all the
we use is made from wood.

Summerfallow Statistics
Taking 100 as the area under suin-
mcrfallow last year, the. amount of
land under summerfallow in Manitoba
in 1916 was 104, in Saskatchewan 103,
and in Alberta 90. Thc figures for
1915 wcrc 77, 71 and 74 respectively.
There will obviously be a great deal
more land in cultivation in Western
Canada iu  1917 than In 1916.

Interesting Conclusions Drawn From
Tracing French Ancestry
Thoughtful dclvers into Canadian
history have drawn attention lo the
fact that the French of Lower Canada arc more akin to ourselves Ihan
wc have been accustomed lo suppose.
Their ancestors came from Brittany
and Normandy. The Bretons are-
brothers lo the Celtic, Irish, the
Welsh and the Highland Scottish.
The Normans were of Scandinavian
blood, and essentially identical with

Profits of London Hotels
A hint of the vast expenditure of
money in London at this time, is given by the annual financial statement
of thc Strand and the Regents Palace
hotels, two quite ordinary English
hostels, by the way. The statement goes on to show that thc net
profit for the year for the two was
no less than $450,000, and that a dividend of seven per cent, was paid on
the preference shares and eleven per
cent, on the common. If any Canadian hotels arc doing this sort of a
land office business, we would like to
hear from them. As there are unnumbered thousands of Canadian women hanging around London, it is
safe'to say that Canadians have contributed a goodly share of these profits, and incidentally eaten up a good

A Little Figuring Will Usually Pay
Big Dividends
It has been said that if lead pencils were uncommon things there
would be golden opportunities for
slick-tongucd salesmen to sell them
at a substantial profit on thc strength
of the amount of money which could
be saved by their use. This was never more true than it is today when
everything is so high in price. A
lead pencil judiciously used will show
which crops last year returned the
most for the labor put upon them.
Such information would be valuable
in planning this year's work. Lead
pencils have been known to save
years of time which was being spent
in milking unprofitable cows. A little
figuring might show where the purchase of a new machine would more
than save its cost in time saved during, tllf .rush of a busy season. Bg-
fore the lead pencil idea is capitalized why not start of your own accord

ing and where savings of time and
money could be made?���The Practical Parmer.

eagerly inquired: "Do you think that
I will havc lime to get a soda before

"Oh, yes," answered the conductor.
"But suppose," suggested the

should go on without me?"
"We can easily fix that," promptly

Even telephone men ol long experience are surprised at the greater veiice elistinctness when speaking directly into the telephone. When
you speak directly into the telephone, a lower tone ol voice can be used
and your Irieud cau hear easily.
Moreover, when you speak lower, the actual tone qualities of your
voice are transmitted. When you speak loudly you unconsciously
adopt an unnatural tone of voice, with the result that ninch of that

Notes By The Way
"Oh, to strike.- onc blow for KngUuul
before* I die���
One Mow--.wilt, silent, sure,
Ami constant to endure,
One blow   grim, bare anil stark,
Unswerving to ils mark,
Oh, may 1 keep myself well lil,
In body, and suiii, and brain and wit
With instinct trained to know  the
When my weak   hand   is  clothed

To strike one honest, sturdy blow,
Before I go!"
The friends of Germany in Canada and other parts of the Empire
see to it that tlie soldiers do not
keep themselves "fit iu body soul
and brain 9nd wit" more's the pity.
A soldier reeling along as the resull of doctored liquor is the saddest thing in the world these days.
And the friends of the Empire
stand by and see it done, As Lord
Rosebery once said, 'You must
either control the liquor trade or it
will control you." His words would
appear to represent the facts in
Canada, although the claws of the
trade in the Old Country have
been somewhat cut, and the facilities for doing harm reduced.
Where are our high-minded people
iu Canada? Dominion-wide prohibition should have been in full
swing now, and if any provincial or
Federal government blocks the way
the way should be cleared. So
long as Canada tolerates anything
but prohibition from the Atlantic
to the Pacific, Canada is fighting
with one hand behind her back.

Germany's Home Production
By stopping Germany's supply of
Chilean nitrates and other fertilizers,
the British navy has brought down
Germany's home production of potatoes and other field crops about _5
per cent. That is, it has caused a
shortage in lhe home production far
bigger than Germany's normal imports of foodstuffs. Without fertilizers, the farm lands of Germany cultivated for centuries, will not yield
morc than average, and the difference
in output is sufficient to bring Germany ultimately to the verge of starvation.���Mail and Empire.

The World's Age
Scientists   Differ   Slightly, But   All
Axe Agreed That This Sphere
Is Somewhat Ancient
Science has been making the age
of the world 200,000,000 years, more
or less. But the latest scientific calculation is 1,000,000,000 years. This
great difference of time arises from
the difference of methods of calculation. The first-named period is
reached through geological estimates,
founded on sedimentation and stratum formation.
The    longer    period    is    reached I
through  the  retroactive    effects     ofl
uranium and ils related elements.   It

to     produce     crystallization     which
possesses creative force.   The longer
period is thc  estimate of chemistry,
lhc shorter period, of geology, but a.s
| there is no geology without chemistry, thc scientific world is turning to
uranium  as  thc   controlling  clement
in the building of the earth, and the

Showing How a Policy of Pacifism
Does Not Always Ensure
The Conservator, edited by Horace
Tiaubcl, biographer of Whitman and
saluted by Debs as the master pacifist of thc country, quotes the following from Emerson: "Whenever
we see the doctrine of peace embraced by a nation wc may be sure it will
be one which has a friend in the bottom of the heart of every man, even
to thc violent and the base; on. against which no weapon can prosper."
And Belgium, Quaker among nations, adopted this doctrine, dedicating herself and being dedicated lo
perpetual pence. She was to assail
no one and never to br. assailed. She
was Iruc to her high faith, yet she
is the most devastated and desolated
of nations, her women outraged, h
men led into slavery, her churches
and ' art inonumeijts levelled;
flourishing industries destroyed, No
weapon able, to prosper against her?
Would it -were so.

Hoilowneas of Materialism
Rudyard Kipling on the Relative Advantages of Money Making and
Other PuAuits
When Rudyard Kipling visited McGill University a few years ago, he
chose as the theme of his address to
the student body the hoilowness of
materialism. Kipling warned the
young men of McGill against the
pursuit of money as an all-absorbing
occupation in life. /
The fact that Kipling chose this
subject is evidence worthy of note of
thc importance to the nation of the
ideals conceived at college by its
active-minded young men, thoyi who
aije,.destined 'icir a certain mom. and
intellectual leadership. Democracy
is *iot healthy unless the relative advantages of money-making and other
pursuits in life arc generally-fljfhder-

By reason of llis early unsuccessful adventures in thc Near Fast, he
gathered invaluable knowledge in the
matter of organization and equipment which hc has lhis year applied
in other quarters. As a resull of the
failure of his troops in the West in
the spring and autumn of 1915, to
attain their desired objective, he
made certain changes in personnel,
vastly improved bis organization behind the- lines, and above all learned
that the only way seriously to deut
thc German front was with a preponderating supply of shot and shell.
Hc lost Bulgaria to lhc allied
cause, but the experience he acquired
in that process enabled him to gather
in Rumania'. Just now, by the foi-
tune of war, Rumania appears to be
a doubtful military asset, if not a liability; but at the time unquestionably, the enlistment of tllis country
with tlie allies was a diplomatic
stroke of first importance.
Early in 1916 lie adopted conscription. Had it been introduced a year
before, the war might have been over

Started toward the glory gate;
But when passing close- In liaeles
The angel murmured '\\'ait --

It's the hottest place in lull,
Where the tlulis who beat llie printer
In awful torment dwell.'
The printer saw before liim
Oltl patrons by the score.
An easy chair and fan he grabbed,
Antl nsked for nothing more,
He sat nnd watched and watched   them
Saw them sizzle, scorch and burn.
And Iiis former debtors saw liim
Whichever way he'd turn.
Said the angel;    'Come up higher,
Anil the pearly gates we'll see.'
