Muller ostentatiously yawned, and
pulled out his watch.
This is rather a late hour to discuss
points ot law, is It not? he asked with
bland good humor; which was almost
more exasperating than the sarcasm
which had gone before.
Murgatroyd again took no notice of
the. interjected remark.
Circumstances have totally changed

doubly effective from Its violence nnd
from the fact that. it. was unexpected.
You liar. Muller hissed out, as he
struck. Murgatroyd reeled with the
offiecl of -the blow, staggering backwards, and would have fallen, but the
wall at the side of the room saved
him. Muller stood with arms outstretched without further movement.
Ue had been carried away to do more
than he intended.
Murgatroyd' steadied himself by a
violent effort. Then he sprang upon
Muller, and the two wrestled together
In the narrow space tlie room afforded. Muller was the heavier, but
Murgatroyd had had an English public
tjrAuol and 'Varsity training, which
his atter-ltfs had strengthened rather
than undermined. Round and round
they went nnlll Muller caught his
foot, against the leg of the armchair in which lie had been sitting
when his visitor arrived, and fell,
Blrlklng his head on the table edge.
Murgatroyd was dragged down upon
him, and the two falling shook the

was at the door of the room above,

Tin Inspector had raised the fallen

on the subject, as much a. any doctor.

the bedrooms?
Murgatroyd. immensely relieved.
went off eagerly. Some seconds elapsed before he could find an unlocked
Meanwhile Muller's eyes opened,
and he saw a big. strange men looking
down npoi. bim.
Who nre you? he said.
Inspector Murphy, of Scotland Yard,
Mr.  Muller.
An extraordinary change passed
over Muller's face when he heard the
name and official title of tbe stalwart
man before him. Physically he w-rb
no coward, but for years ho had had
a morbid fear of the iron grip of the
police. It had not prevented blm
running the risk, and placing himself
in the utmost danger, for that was second nature to him, and his profession
and livelihood; but the day of Nemesis
had haunted his thoughts and imagination day and nigh;. He was a naturalised British subject. In the dispatch-box on the table beneath the
window was sufficient evidence to convict hlni of treason-felony. Muller's
very prosperity accentuated his dread
of the doom which awaited him when
the culminating secret of his life of
treasonable conspiracy and sedition
was disclosed, as lie felt now It would
be In a few moments. He had never
feared Murgatroyd, 'but he feared
Murphy; for Murphy was the physical
embodiment of the law which he had
outraged and set at defiance. Murphy
saw the iook of fear on Muller's
blende round face, but was at
a loss to understand it. He knew
enough againBt Muller to have secured him a warrant; but what he knew
was less than nothing compared to
the actual facts, which would have
sufficed to condemn twenty Mullers.
He wns powerless, too, practically
without a warrant. Whereas Muller
had endowed the Inspector with a warrant in imagination the moment he had
beard his name. Neither of the men
understood the position of the other,
and It was as well for the success of
Murgatroyd's plans that this film of
mystification prevailed. Had Muller
known that. Murphy was only a reconnaissance in force, he would have
plucked tip courage at once. Had
Murphy known that absolute, definite
proofs of treason of 1ho worst kind
rested in that dispatch-box, on which
hie eyes rested directly he entered tho
sitting-room, nothing but death Itself
would havo parted him from Muller
until he was legally secured.
Muller lay and gazed at the Inspector; Murphy stood over the prostrate
mat; and regarded him w-ith keen scrutiny. Neither spoke. The silence,
short as It was, was becoming oppressive, when Murgatroyd eame in with
a jug of water in his hand. Murphy
turned io him.
Mr. Muller has recovered from IiIb
faint. I told you his head was thick
enough. I will leave you two for a
few minutes to finish your business.
If yon have any difficulty���here lie
half turned to Muller, speaking at him
though not to him���call me; 1 shall
be within ear-shot.
Inspector Murphy had divined, so
far at any rate, that Muller was
afraid of him, and not of Murgatroyd.
But the idea did not. rouse his suspicions to the real truth; for the police
are Quite accustomed to the atmosphere of respect.
After the Inspector had left the
room, Muller shook himself and sat
up. He seemed still a little dazed
with !iie fall, but nothing else.
Is he coming back?
Not. unless he is wanted. In that
case he will havo charge of the matter instead of me,
Murgatroyd too had read the signs
of the times, and more distinctly than
Murphy, because he had more data to
go upon to form a judgment.
Muller shifted uneasily. His face
waa still white; he looked curiously
unhealthy and repugnant. Only his
color as a rule rendered him passably
good-looking. The sense of defeat
which appeared in his eyes and about
the corners of his mouth, and 'he
paleness combined, suggested the
high-placed criminal.
I want three things. In the lirst
place, the loan of the Transalplan
documents. They shall be returned
to the address you select.
Why not. here?
���Because you will no', be here.
1 don't understand.
Muller passed his handkerchief over
his brow to wipe the c.otled beads of
perspiration from it.
You will directly, Murgatroyd nns
wered coldly.
Id (he second place, you will destroy all the maps, plans and treasonable documents contained in that dispatch-box.
Muller was aboul to protest that
.i.rr'> were none such in his possession
hn; Murgatroyd waved him to silence.
Hon *hc iRtier bad obtained his In-
fononlPsi was the mystery ot ir,ys-
terles.      Muller could only  Imagine

that one or more o[ the tbree men
had gone straight to the journalist
and sold the secret. Ile did nol
trust any one a hair's breadth; yet
he had relied upon their fear, for his
vengeance would be terrible, and he
held all llieir lives In Ihe hollow of his
hand. T.ils questioning passed rapidly through his mind in the pause before Murgatroyd advanced his third
in the third place, you will leave
England It-fore to-morrow night. If
you return within ten years, all Ihe
information In my possession will be
placed In the hands of the police.
Muller gazed at  blm sullenly.
You arc a. hard task-master, now
you have got the upper hand, and he
brought his fal list heavily down on
the table.
If you make a noise Inspiolor Murphy will come In; you will find him
a harder one.
1 shall have to get Ihe key from
my bedroom.

I Tha Scientific Farming of the Woodlot
"There is no pari of the [arm which
will give bigger returns for so little
expenditure of time and labor us tha
woodlot." This statement In the
July number of the Canadian Forestry Journal, I. made by Mr. B. it.
Morion, it. Sc. ���>'.. the siivicul expert
who is ciigagid hy the Forestry
Branch at Ottawa to demonstrate to
the woodland owners of eastern Canada just how these bigger returns may
be achieved. Uut If It Is nol possi-
bln to obtain such expert advice, there
are yel three ways In which the farmer,  by  the exercise of ordinary  com-
( inon sense, can vastly Improve Iho
composition, production and repyoduc-
i ion of bis woodlot.
Ths llrst  ihiiig necessary Is to Improve the   chatacter   ot   the   crop,
\ which can he done by culling down
nml using for fire-wood all diseased
and deformed trees, ns well as such
species whose presence In the wood-
lot is nol desirable. only ion fre-
quentlj is the method ot cutting exactly 111'.' reverse. Till beat trees are
cut, often for purposes for which tin
Inferior wood would servo, nnd the
poorer speclos arc led seed-in the cut-
over areas and to gradually crowd oul
the belter varieties. Before cutting,
tlie farmer should consider firsi the
use to which the wood Is to he put,
and second, lhe specleB-composltloii of
the woodloi which ls most desirable.
firewood probably yields the best
returns (or u bum 11 acreage and fori
this  purpose  rapid grow el's    sueli    as
poplar, ash and elm should he encouraged, which should make an annual
growth of. from onchalt to one cord1
per acre.      Hassvvood  too,  will  be In
Increasing demand because of its rapid
growth, hecausr it coppices readily
and because of Us value In small sizes

(or which the wood Is particularly
adapted, Maple reproduces readily,
and although nol a rapid grower. It.
nevertheless yields a substantial revenue when ii becomes largo enough to
tap. Soft woods like spruce, balsam and ..ne grow much more rapidly t him hardwoods and might be
advantageously grown for fuel or pulp-
wood .
When the most suiiahle species have
been selected and the weed-trees removed, lhe woodlot must then be thinned until the crowns of the best-formed remaining trees are seen to barely
touch. An acre can only produce a
given amount of wood each year and
the fewer trees there are to share
this yearly Increment, and yet fully
i utilize the crown space, the more rap-
lid will be the growth of these trees.
The third requisite In the scientific
farming or the woodlot, Is that the
cattle lie kepi out, especially after
heavy rutting, when reproduction ls
mosl dtuttd. Cattle are just as Injurious to a young crop of tree-seedlings as they are to a young crop of
grain. They may Indeed eat the
grass In the woodlot, but they would
just as soon, if not sooner, oat the
young and tender hardwood shoots,
and the same can be said of sheep.
Even coniferous seedlings arc not immune so that certainty In reproduction
ts onlv assured by fencing off the.cut-
over areas. Dr. Pernow predicts that.
"There will be a time when the wood-
lot will sell the farm or Will be a necessary Part of the farm to make it
valuable. In the seasons when his
other work slackens the farmer could
very easily Improve bis woodlot in anticipation of this tlmi of increased
wood values.

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are useful'
In any disease caused by thin or Impure blood, and the .ist of such dla- ]
eases is astonishingly large. Anaemiai
literally means a condition in which
the blood is thin and watery. In rheumatism the blood becomes thin more
rapidly than lu any other disease.
After an attack of la grippe or acute]
fevers the blood ls always thin and
impure, and Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
are the tonic to use during convalescence . When the blood is poor and
thin the stomach suffers. The food
ferments, gas and certain acids form
and the trouble is pronounced Indigestion or dyspepsia. The nerves receive from the blood till of their nourishment to keep up their energy and
repair waste or damage. Some forma
of paralysis are caused by thin blood.
Tha progress of locomotor ataxia is
stopped in many cases when the blood.
Is made pure, rich and red. This is
only a partial list oi the troubles hav-
lug' their origin Iti Impure, watery
blood, and all can be cured by supplying the blood with its missing constituents.
This Is exactly what Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills do.      Their chief mission

At a recent meeting of the Westminster Presbytery a long resolution in reference to oriental emigration was passed. Stripped of its
verbosity it says that tbe oriental is
an undesirable citizen and that some
means should be devised to restrict
his flow into British Columbia.
Also that the wives of the Hindoo's
now here should be allowed to come i
iuto the country. |
The orential population is now i
to 9 and as there are practally no
oriental women here, this is equal
to about one oriental workman to
every five white men. No white
labors can go to the Orient and
compete with the orientals, yet the
orientals can come here and com-
pete with white men and get com-!
paratively rich. So long as the
orient is open for the entry of
traders and missionaries the orientals have a right to demand entry
into the countries that send traders I
and missionaries to bother them, I

Campbell River
About a hundred men are to quit
work at Campbell River to-day,
Tuesday, owing to the closing dowu
of the International Timber Co's.,
Camp. For quite a time now there
has been a slackness in the timber
trade: the price offered for timber
having reached such a low level.
Trade altogether in British Columbia has not been brisk for many
months now, but, it is to be hoped
when affairs in the East nre of a
more settled character, work will
| continue as formally. The camp
reckons to open early in the New
Campbell River and surrounding
district sustained a loss when Mr.
Allan, the reverend minister, left
at the close of last week for the
East, to complete his last year oi
study in the ministry. Although
our Scotch friend had only worked
in the district for five months he
had gained the ;good will of the
people, and more especially of ths
young fellows around the camps
Through the genuine kindness of
Mr. and Mrs. Timlin, n card partv
was held at the Willows Hotel,
where about fifty guests assembled
to bid farewell to their departing
The Rev. J. Hepburn who hails
from Eastern Canada, and who has

Saanich, and another ferry, it
would be an incalculable value to
the city. The major knows nothing about the Seymour Narrows
plan, although, he agrees that
$500,000 would be a big inducement.

By   r.   A.   M1TCHEL
Melville, having worked Ids way

ot $500 a few days nfler graduation,
concluded to spend tbe money In a
trip abroad before settling down to Ills

limited a sum be wns obliged to economize in bis traveling expenses and
proposed (o do a good deal of walking.

At the hotel where lie put up iu that

her face wns a sadness, Indicating (but
she bad suffered; viud let! venose,
pointing to some injustice that bad
been Inflicted upon her, nnd there was
an air about hor of indifference to everything and everybody.
But .Melville's curiosity wns especially excited by nn ornament the young
lady wore upon her bosom���a stickpin,
the bead of which wns n garnet bcurt.
It was not In her neckwear, bul stuck
tn ber dress directly over ber real Ilesb

making n part of the Journey himself
by wnter. So, going down lo the lauding, be took passage for Lausanne.
There Is a quick telegraphy between
(wo young persons of opposite sex, nml
very little time wns required for tbe
glrl-to perceive thnt Melville bud especially noticed her. lie spoke some
Kligllsh words with bis American nc-
(eut In ber hearing, and this inndo ber
nwure tbut be was h fellow country-
innn, lie scraped en acquaintance
wltb her father, hoping tbat It might
lead to an Introduction to the daughter,
out In this lie was for the time disappointed, When the bout reached f.uu-
panne, Melville disembarked with re-
tret that he must leave the object ef
tils curiosity unsolved,
' The nest day ho Walked lo Mon-
Ireux, nud tbe first person be saw on

Melville thnt be saw In hers that revengeful look be hnd noticed, though it
suddenly gave place (o one which he
could only nccotint for ns nn Invitation
for bim to seek an ncqualntnnce.
' Such Impressions are usually vngue
and readily give place to others. Of
(he two mentioned Melville remembered only tbe Inttor. Ho wns by no
hlentis sure of bis Interpretation, but
he proposed to net upon It nt the Drst

lic learned Hint the family name * ns

Melville wns fond of walking sympathized wltb bim. telling bim (but she
ivns devoted to it  herself.    Throwing
iRlde conventionality, she accepted invitations to go about with lim freely,
unaccompanied by a chaperon. Mei-
riiic found an additional feature In the
(Hizr.le In nn evident disapproval on
Ihe part of Mrs. Huntington of his attentions to her (laughter. This disapproval did not appear to result from
���.ny antagonism to him personally, nor
ltd the lady appear to blame him fnr
tbe growing Intimacy wpi, uer daughter. It was plain from tbe mother's
treatment of blm that she was holding
Alma solely accountable for it.
It was also plain that Alma was bent
on following ber own Inclinations.
When she suggested a morning walk
With Melville to Vlllcneuve nnd back
ot nn excursion on tbe bike ber moth
er would look pained rutlier than un
gored, nud when her efforts lo Induce
ber dnugbler to desist met with ill
success the good indy would sigh atone much troubled.
Whnt nil tbls nieniit Melville wns �����
a loss to discover. There wns evident'
ly something buck of it of which lit
wns unaware. The young Indy wa��
evidently bent on nu affair witli blm,
��� nd ber mother wus trying to dissuade
tier. Hnd (be girl really become attached to tiiinV He did not believe
tbat sbe had. Her Interest in blm bad
come too suddenly and developed too
quickly. Now nnd again, while resting on their walks, turning Ids eyes
upon hers, be would catch her looking
at blm wllh n singular glance thnt he
could not interpret. Then sbe would
arise, and as tbey strolled on would
put her arm through his confidingly.
The lluntingtous lingered at Mon
treux, and Melville lingered too. Alma
was pleased to reinniD, und she np-
pnrently dominated ber fnmlly. For
Melville there wns something so curiously fascinating nbout her that ha
could not tear himself nwny. And
every day that fascination grew stronger. He wished that be dare ask her to
solve tbe mystery hanging nbout ber,
but something in her mnn net', he knew
not whnt. prevented bim. Once be
ventured to refer to the garnet benrt,
but she gnvo bim n look so strange,
bo forbidding, thnt he stumbled in bis
speech and wns silent.
At Inst Melville, seeing thnt Ids attentions, or rather Alma's encourage
ment of bis attentions, wns producing
something that looked like discord in
the Huntington family, resolved to depart He announced Ids intention t*
Mrs. Huntington before speaking of it
to Alma. Tbe mother appeared grateful to bim.
When be announced his intention to
depart to Alma tbey were standing on
nn eminence overlooking tbe lake.
"Clear, plncld Lemon," ns Byron has
described It, its bosom dotted with various kinds of craft, wns spread out before them, and tbe view bad Its effect
on Melville. He did not wish to leave
the girl wbo lu so short n time had become so much to him. Sbe did not
besltnte to dissuade him from bis pur'
pose, aud she was aided by their beautiful surroundings. After a long silence between tbem, during which sha
was waiting for his decision, be said:
"I will remain on one condition. I
love you: assure mc Hint my love is
As be spoke the words be turned and
faced her. A struggle was going on
within ber. but what Hint struggle was
he could not tell. Sbe put ber bands
to her face to concenl It from him. He
wnlted for ber emotion to pnss. At
last she took nway ber linnds, nnd,
looking into bis face wilb an expression entirely changed from tbat seeming revengeful spirit he bad nt times
noticed, she drew the gnmet pin from
ber bosom nnd fixed it In bis scarf.
No words passed between them, only
a caress. Tben she added, "Go to mother; (ell ber what bas occurred and sbe
will explain what bns naturally been
a puzzle to you."
When Melville told Mrs. Huntington
tbut he bad captured the garnet heart
she gave a deep drawn sigh of relief.
"Vou have broken n spoil, Mr. Melville," she snld to blm, "thnt I am very
happy has been broken. Wben Alma
was passing from childhood to womanhood sbe met one of those young men
who consider a girl's heart a thing to

Melville  accompanied  the  Hunting"
��� tons in their tour, which they adapted
j to   his   requirements,    indeed,   they
were making It entirely on uccount of
- tbe daughter they Idolized.    Melville '
wns too deeply In love lo blame her
for her past unreasoning desire to j
punish him for tbe fault of unothcr. i
| Indeed, the fact thnt be had succeeded j
like  a   knight  of vld   in  slaying  the

This symbolic interpretation is, in
fact, connected with the old belief
lhat beetles arose Inin the dead, a
belief which doubtless owes its origin
to the habit, ot these insects ol rolling
(heir eggs in halls oi sand, so that
when the young are hatched they have
lhe appearance of issuing unaided
from the earth. Scarabs found in
tombs usually beat some inscription
from the Egyptian "Book of thn
Dead," referring to the < xchange of ap
old heart, I'd a new. Henri arose, no
doubt, tlie custom ri pining scarabs
over, the heart of a dead person, tlin
preservation of whose body tbey were
supposed to secure. In many cases
the heart, wjs removed altogether
wh;n the body was embalmed, and
wns then replaced by  a scarab.
The earliest scarabs wen formed ot
soft stone; later examples were made
ot pottery or engraved on pieces et
hard granite. In color Ley either resembled that of the green Egyptian
oockehsfter or were o! that fine, deep
blue so characteristic ot Egyptian pottery beads. Tbe back is'always in ths
form of the sacred beetle and the flat
base ia engraved in various ways, according to the period to which the
scarab belongs. Some bear the names
of Egyptian Kings, while others are
engraved with the portraits (rather i
impressionistic in style') oi Queens'
and various royal personages. Anieii-
hoten 111. was accustomed lo issue his
royal edicts on the face oi enormous
scarabs, especially constructed lor the
nuroose, and smaller ones were used
hy him as gilt- or to convey to friends
the assurance of his good feeling.
The meaning id those peculiar spiral
decorations which.so often appear on
scarabs as well as on undent eastern
monuments, sucli as Cleopatra's
Needle, Ims been entirely lost, sight of,
but that all such devices had n specific
meaning, however obscure, lies been
well established by antiquarian research.
During Hie thirrd century B.C.
scarabs wire frequently fashioned
from gold- and precious stones, and
the fact that they were wrought in
certain fixed sizes seems to point lo
the fact that they represented money
values and were employed as a medium of exchange. But for whatever
purpose they were used, tlieir mysteriously sacred character always remained, and tbis lias endured wherever
they are found, without regard to century or to country.
