Maitland was fool enough to be ab-
ductod she'll stay nwhllo before I pay

this detective businer.3 wns going lo
bo expensive anyhow.
My excuse for dwelling wltb such
attention to detail en the preliminary
story, tlio disappearance of .Miss Jane
Maitland and the peculiar circumstances surrounding it, win have to
thnl its justification hi the events that
followed it. Miss Jane herself and
tho solution of that mystery solved tbo

because It was borne in on me at
about that time that Iho things that
concerned Margery Fleming must eon-

At 9 o'clock that night things re-
malnod about tho mine. Tbo man
Hunter had sent to investigate the
neighborhood and tho country just
outside of the town came lo the bouse
about s nnd reported 'nothing discovered.' Hunter called me by telephone
from town.

minutes moro saw me at Iho designated corner with my enb driving away

1 found a sort of refuge by standing
under tbo wooden arch of n gate, and

CHAPTER VI,
Too Late
Al  u galo In the fence beyond  Hie
warehouse Ilnntev stopped.     It  was
nn ordinary wooden gale, aid It opened witli   a   thumb   latch.    Beyond
stretched a long, narrow, brick paved i '
alleyway, perhaps three feel, wide and I
lighted by the merest  glimmer of a
light ahead.     Hunter wont on regardless of puddles in the brieli paving,
land 1 stumbled  after him.     As we
advanced l could see that the light
was a single electric bulb, hung over n
| second gate.     While Hunter fumbled
I for a key in his pocket I hud time to i I
seo that this gate had n Yale lock.!
was provided at tho side with an electric button and bad a letter tJot cut in
it.
Hunter opened iho '\.te and preceded mo through It.   Tile gate swung to
and  clicked  behind  me.     Afler  the
gloom  of tbe passageway  the small
brick paved yard seemed brilliant with
, lights.     Two wires wero strung its
length,   dotted   with   many   electric
'lamps.     In a come, a   striped   tent
stood   .iul in   grotesque   relief.     It
seemed to be empty, and the weather
was an easy explanation.    Prom the
I two storey housi   beyond there came
I suddenly a burst of piano music and
a none too steady  masculine voice.
Hunter turned to mc with bis foot _i
tlio wooden slops.
Above everything else, lie warned,
keep your temper. Nobody gives a
hang in here whether you're the mayor of tbe town, tho champion pool
player of liie lirst ward or the roundsman on his beat.
The door at the top of tlio steps
was also Yale locked. Wc stepped
at onee into tho kitchen, from which 1
imagined that Ui. house faced ou another street aud that for obvious reasons only its rear entrance was used.
Tbo kitchen was bright and clean. It
was Uttered, however, with half cut
loaves of bread, glasses and empty
bottles. Over the range a man in his
shirt sleeves was giving his whole attention to a slice ol ham sizzling on a
skillet, and at a table near by a young
fellow with Ills balr cut in a barber's
oval over tin. back of bis neck was
spreading slices nl bread and cheese
wltb mustard.
llow are you. Mr. Mayor? Hunter
suld.   This is Mr. Knox, Hie man who
Is engineering the Star-Eagle light.
I    The man over the range wiped one
I greasy band and held it out to me.
1 recognized the mayor, lie was n
big fellow, handsoma In a heavy way
and Tommy' to everyone who knew
my city government at play.
Hunter \v_j thoroughly at home.1
We take cnro of ourselves hero, ho
explained, if yon want a sandwich
there is cooked linni in the refrigerator and cheese��� If our friend at the
sink has left any. Oct Bome cigars,
will you'.' They're on a shelf In tho
pantry.    I have my bonds full.
I went for the cigars, remembering
to keep my eyes open. Tbo pantry
was a small room, it contained an
icebox stocked with drliiKables, ham,
eggs, and outter. On shelves above
were cards, cigars and liquors, and
there, too, 1 saw a box with an indorsement which showed the honor system
of the Cat club.
Sign checks and drop here, It read,
and I thought about tbe old adage of
honor anions thieves and politicians.
When I came out with the cigars
Hunter was standing with a group of
new arrivals. Thev Included oue of
the city physicians, tlio director ot
public t-hn-Hies and a Judge of a local
court. The latter, Mel _ely, a little
thin Irishman, knew me nnd accosted
j me at onto.   The mayor   vas   busy
over the range and wai almost purple
wllh heal and unwonted an\h!y.
When the llirie iieweoiiierH went up-
tlalrs Instead of going into tho grill"
mom  I looked at  Hunter.
Is this where the political game is
played? J asked.
Yes, If the political game is linker,
he replied.
What time do tbey clooo up? I asked. In answer Hunter pointed lo ti
.sign over tbo door. II was ii card,
neatly printed, and il said: The While
Cat No      Sleeps,
Tlie crowd '..'an good humored. II
paid Ilttlo or i.o attention to ns, and
when some one ut tlio piano bogan to
thump a waltz Hunter, under cover of
the llolso, leaned over In me.
We traced Kleiniug    here    through
your corner man nnd tbo cabby, ho
said carefully. I haven't seen him
bin It is a moral certainty he is skulling in one of tho upstairs rooms, His
precious private secretary is hero too.
1 don't know Fleming by sight and the

Japan's Dun my Editors
There is a peculiar person on the
staff of some of the Japanese newspapers, known as t o 'dummy editor,'
whoso sole duty it is to go to jail in
the interests of tb i journal. Whenever
a paper publishes something unfriendly lo the government it is suppressed
and the (lummy editor sent to prison
while the real editor simply changes
the namo of the paper and continues
to publish it as before.

Children Oilen Seem Pining Away
and Ordinary Medicine Does
Not Help Them
Tin health of children between the
ages of twelve and eighteen years, particularly In the eai-e ot girls, Is a
iiourco of so:ions worry to nearly
every mother. The growth nud development takes so much of their
strength that In many eases tbey actually seem to bo going Into a decline.
Vhe appetite Is tickle, brightness giveB
way to depression; there aro often
serious headaches, fits of dtalness, or
occasional fainting nnd a complaint
of weariness ' tho slightest exertion.
Ordinary medicines will not bring relief. The blood has become thin und
watery, and the. child must have some.-
tl ing that will bring the blood back
to U. normal condition, At. thin stage
no other medicine can equal Dr. Williams' Pink l'ills. Their whole mission is to make new blood, which
reaches every part of the body, bringing back health, strength and energy.
Mrs. Janus Harris, Port Rowan, Onl.,
says: "At the ago of thirteen my
daughter began to look very palo, and
seemed listless and always tired. Sho
did not take interest in ber schcoi
work or In those amusements of girlhood. In fact sho just seemed to
drag hersolt about, complaining of always being tired; did not cat. well,
and did not sleep well ut night. I took
her to our doctor who said she was
anncniie. and advised mc to give her
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Slhc took
tho l'ills for nearly two months, when
she was as well .and lively as any girl
could he, gained nicely in weight, and
has since enjoyed perfect health. I'
am qttlto sure that what tho Tills did
for my daughter they will do for other
pale, weak girls. I have also used
Dr. Williams' Pink l'ills myself with
the i.nst results and can only speak of
them in ternn. oi' greatest praise."

English Harvest Feasts
The feasts that now take place at
the closo of the harvest, season in Nng-
lnnd are small affairs compared with
the old fashioned harvest suppers hold
formerly. In some of the northern
counties tho farmers would give churns
of cream, and it was servved out iu
cups to tho laborers. Nowadays a
glass of alo or cider is tho substitute
for iho old time feast. In some parts
of the north of Ireland the ancient custom slill lingers as the churn supper.
A very old custom Is the baking of a
largo cake by tho farmor's wife. This
is cut up and served out to every one,
including children,' accompanying the
horkey cart, into tl _ farmyard. The
horkey cart, was the cart on which
the last load of the season was drawn.

Happy Valley
The comedian has returned, and
his many friends don't know
whether they are Kind to see him
or not? He says he has had a fairly good time, but has not seen any
ladies. He informs us that he has
not seen a better ranching country
nor any prettier girls than are to be
found in the famous Happy Valley.
A bachelors party was held at
Crowton Ranch ou Tuesday evening Jan. 13th, when over 30 friends
took part in an enjoyable evening
consisting of songs, recitations and
various music, with a few funny
stories about fishing, but not quite
a* fishy ns the ducks nre, that are
being captured on the Royston
Beach.
On Wednesday evening the 14th
in connection with the Mission, a
Young Peoples Society was formed.
Something of this sort has been
needed a long time, the population
of the valley is not decreasing. Mr.
P, Grant, the new principal of the
Minto school presided over the
meeting and the following officers
were elected. President, Mr. W.
Harvey; Vice President, Mr. S.
Robinson; Organizing Secretary,
Rev. S. S. Webster. The meeting.-,
will be held in the Minto school
house every Wednesday evening at
7 o'clock and will be made very interesting and edefying.
The valley is still going ahead
in the right direction.
Mr. Thos. Pearse's many friends
will be sorry to hear of his unfortunate accident, which befell him
while engaged in logging on his
ranch on Tuesday afternoon, sustaining a fracture of the right leg.
He and his family have the sympathy of us all and we hope to see
him jumping around again in the
near future with his pleasant face
and genial manner with which we
are all accustomed.

house does not get into belter shape

Now in conclusion, Mr,Editor, I canj
mt understand how any person can call
this Sabbath the Jewish Sabbath as it
was instituted for man long before there
w ,s a Jew; The Christians ke.it it at
Antioch with th; Jews.
The Lord calls it his "Holy day," see
Isiuh 58:13 (fifty-eight) 11-13 verses,
and K/.echiel 20:12,20. Also in Revelations John said he was in the spirit on
the Lord's Day.   Rev. 1:10,
Enoch believed in Christ's advent, see
Jude fourteen. All the Prophets, Apostles and Disciples; in fact all Christiana
whose history is recored in the the Bible
kept the Seventh Day Sabbath and also
believed in Christ coming again or Advent, Eph. 2:20.
"When we walk with the Lord,
In the light of his word,
What a glory h! sheds on our way,
While we do his  good  will.
He abides with us still.
And with all  who  will  trust and
obey.

Letter to the Editor
Editor of the Review.
Dear Sir:- I write this to encourage
peace and good will to all men in 1VI4.
I have often heard slighting remarks
of Seveuth Day Adventists and when my
attention was first drawn to their belief
and doctrine I thought they wer.- erroneous too, and strenuously opposed their
doctrine until I investigated. Thin I
found by studying the Scriptures, tuat
their doctrine was believed and pi actised
ever since creation, Therefore, this is
the oldest Christain institution on earth,
and founded by the Saviour. S. D. Adventists get tlieir name from their belief
and practice. They believe tha'. the
Seventh Day Sabbath was first kept as a
day of rest i,y Jesus Christ Our Saviour
v, ho was the Creator of all things on
this Earth and the word Advent signifies their belief in Clint's personal coming as King.
In prool of this, that the Saviour was
the Creator, read the rst chapter of St.
John, which tells very plainly, that all
things were made by him, and without
him was not anything made, that was
mide. Also the first chapter of Colos-
sians tells us that Jesus was the image of
the invisible God, and that all things
w.ire made by him and for him. Then
i 1 the first chapter of Hebrews we find
God hath in these last days spoken unto
us by his sou, whom he hath appointed
heir of all things, by whom also he made
the Worlds, notice, he created more than
this earth, he made the Worlds.
Bearing this in mind that Christ, the
Son of God was the Creator, let us turn
back to Genises and read about his creative work.
He evidently was with his Father the
Alm'ghty when it was said, Let us make
man in our own image. Chapt. 1 verse
26. When we come to the second chapter and the second verse we find that the
Lord rested on the seventh day, blessed
and sanctified it, set it apart from other
days as a memorial of his creation so
Chrirt instituted and kept the Seventh
Day Sabbath.
Now let us see if he believed i n his
advent or coming again. Read foureenth
of St. J��hn where he tells his Disciples,
"I will come again and receive you unto

Here Is an unorthodox story of King
Solomon: Que day a butterfly sal on
the Icing's temple and boasted to his
wife: If I elu.se I could lift my wing
and shiver tills building to the ground,
he swaggered. Solomon, overhearing, sent for the boaster. How flare
you-.' he thundoved. The butterfly
groveled. 1 did it to impress my'
wife, he pleaded. The great monarch was instantly appeased and let
him go. What did Solomon Bay to
vou? gasped a quivering wife five minutes later. Oh. he begged me not to
do it said the butterfly airily. And
Solomon, again overhearing, smiled.
For Baking Success
���This Oven Test
Success on sonic baking days
can be expected no matter
what flour you use. But constant .success is rarer. It can
be assured in only one way.
The miller must select his
wheat by oven test.
So from each shipment of
wheat we take ten pounds a.
a sample. We grinc this into
flour. Bread is baked from
the flour. .__ gin a _.��_,_
If this bread is high in quality, PURiT_F
large in quantity, we use the        /
shipment from which it came.      /
Otherwise we sell it. /
Constant baking success comes /
as a matter of course from/
ihmr bearing this name      /

Went  Right To  It.
James France Dwyer, the Au_ra
Han novelist, tells the following story
���bout the Japanese. Dwyer began as
a reporter in Melbourne.
"Japan sent a waTship on invitation
to Australia," said be. "We were tr
unveil a monument in a park in the
interior ot Melbourne. The Japanese
sailors were to grace the occasion."
Not ona ol the Japanese had ever
teen on shore there before. When tbe
morning of tbe unveiling came Melbourne sent a mounted escort to show
the visitors the way to the park. Tha
Escort wasn't needed. At the head of
the brown column marched an officer
with his nose on a map, pinned to a
kit of board.
"He never looked up." said Dwyer.
"Now and then he'd give an order in
Japanese, and the column wonld
wheel to the left or right. Kind friend?
would ware llieir hands at tho mount.
��d escort, marching proudly on the
wrong street, and tell them they ha'-
lust the city's guests."
Two or three times that performance
was repeated. Then the mounted escort gave it up in diEgust. The Japanese went to the park in the interior of
the city straight as pigeon flics to ���
hole in the barn. Aiterwards Dwyer
and other reporters measured the
route and discovered that the Japanese, guided only by their war map,
had taken the shortest route to tbelr
destination through a stram;e city.
The Lady's Choice.
Dr. Maenamara, who started life as
a schoolmaster, has amusing election
experiences to relate. On one occasion, when he was in the middle of a
���pooch, an old lady excitedly asked,
"Are you in favor of the repeal of ths
Hlasplirmy Laws. '
"Madam," was the ready rrply. "I
am a golfer."
Another amusing experience fell to
h_ lot when he was due to address a
meeting at a large board school.   He
arrived somewhat late, and was forced
to muke his way through the crowded
hall.   He found liis passage barred by
a pretty young lady leaning on the
arm of an admirer, and was forced to
overhear the following conversation:
'What's on hero to-night, George?"
'Oh, some spceekifylng, I believe."
'Who is speaking. '
"Dr. Maenamara."
"Let's go back to one of the dark
class-rooms,- George."

four miles in length eighty-seven feet
high, wllh a channel of water through
Its center varying In lopth i'rom forty-

Ot the bottom from 300 tn 1,000 feet.
Tho bridge is divided into I wo sections, (iatuu lake anil Culobra cut,

Access in the bi'ldgo by vessels wlil bu
by moans of water elevators, six in

long, 110 feet wide and with a com.
blued lift of eighty-seven feet. At the
