She turned about and wrut i;i,
closing the door behind her, and the
Squire went on his way, wondering
about Mrs. Bartlclt's mystery antl
the sorrowful story that wa'; apparently hers.
CHAT 11- R IV. ...-'J '111-. COUNTRY
Hilary Strangways was .it Silver-
lliornc Manor for ilu- Easter vacation, He had just gol inlo the lr.O.,
and was finding London o reraarl;
ably pleasant place. 'J'hc chimney-
piece of Iiis sitting-room in '.be liiile
flat in Jerinyii Street held a considerable number of invitation cards.
Hilary, at presenl, bad not learned
to distrust his world, and Had not
considered why be should be so murli
in demand: else lie might have discov--
cred that lie was run after to some
extent because people were i.a.��ing
that since Mr. Mcyrick bad not married he was little likely to marry
now; so that Hilary was coming
more and more to bc accepted as llic
heir to SilvcrthornC Manor and thc
snug rent-roll that went with it.
Hilary might have a very gay lilac
in London, but it had not spoilt him.
Indeed, he had been popular all his
days without getting spoilt, ile bad
been a placid yet rowdy and merry
ebilil, adored hy the servants and dependents generally; hc bad been an
ideal schoolboy, playing tlie [;aiiic always, and with a radiant good humor
lhat carried him tlirougli all his
scrapes. No one could long resist
his liirned-up nose and the appeal oi
bis clean, bright face, lie exuded
happiness wherever he went, and he
was correspondingly loved. At the
early .dances which he had attended
in the weeks between Christmas and
Lent, he bad danced indcfatigably,
wilh a delight in the dancing for its
own sake; had diffused agrccablcness
wherever hc went; had made many a
wallflower happy; had pressed many
hands, and looked into many eyes
with a roguish kindness which    prc-
"I should like a little dog; if I got
him young enough, he wouldn't quarrel with the pussy. He'd let me
know when people wcrc coining. I
shall be too hard at work to ke:p
looking from behind the curtains.''
Hc remembered the sense he had
had while lie wailetl at the door of
being observed, of having eyes upon
"I shall send or bring you a pu.OV.
They are Abcrdeens, very faithful to
their owner, indifferent to the rest of
the world. Don't lct the cat scratch
him "
"She's a young thing yet. They'll
be company for each other. Oh, sir,
1 don't know how to thank you.
Your Aberdeen sounds good; faithful to onc; indifferent to all the -est.
1 shall be like a queen."
She went with him to the door,
remembering that she had not thanked him -for this and that thing. Mis.
Brown bad equipped the lodge as for
one of tlie reduced ladies, putting
into the cupboards and the pantry all
that would be needed. The coal cellar was stocked. She had plenty of
everything to go on with. Presently
lhe would find her own supplies.
"What's out there, sir?" she asked
of thc Stpiire, indicating tbe high
wall, with the cluvaux dc disc of
���harp glass a lop.
"Thc village���-Silverdale."
"1 thought il was a village by the
noise. It made mc (eel happy lo hear
it���with lhc wall between.
The Squire frowned upwards disapprovingly.
"li is rathe, a wicked wall," he
laid, "I .'in not responsible for 't.
I bate that glpss. It was there before my time, Silverdale boys were
fond of apples, like Other boys. Vi
the wav, I was nboul to have a wic-
k.i niad.' In tin' wall, Vou could
keep it linked if you liked. 11 would
br io much easier for your -hopping
and so much less lonely."
"Oh, for heaven's sake, sir, no wicket," she said. "It would spoil everything.    I love lhal 'wall."
Thc Squire laughed at llic intensity of the speech. There was something about ihc woman���something
pleasant which made l.i ill forget tlle
scarred face when be was not looking at il. She had femininity, the
thing, lacking which, many a pretty
woman is no more than a scentless
flower, without honey for the bees.
"Very well, then," he said; "there
shall hc no wicket, You will have to
go nearly a mile to the lodge-gates,
kcepine along ihe shrubbery path by
thc wall, There is a little* shop close
by llie lodge gates, Mrs. Chitty's.

you have made a poor creature very I
happy.     lio   you   sec   the   patch      ofl
snowdrops, sir, coining up under that
apple-tree?     I  was  thinking just be-|
fore you ramc of all the things thai
would be coming up in  the spring.
It is a .long time since I have had a

Slid hy all druggists in Canada end
throughout thc tixrld
vented -&iy harm being done. Altogether Hilary was thc good guest to
many a hostess in trouble about hor
dancing men. Thc season was likely
to alTortl him more gaieties than he
would know what to do wilh; for
he found it difficult to say "No" lo
au invitation from a woman.
lie came back to Silverlhorne, as
lie had conic back lo it from Eton
for all tfiose happy summer vacations.
He bad been lhc Squire's own boy
since he was tighl years old; when
his parents, who had sent him home
from India three years previously,
hail been drowned by lhe bursting oft
a dam, which had elided everything
for tlicin at the moment when they
wcrc gelling ready for lhe visit home
lo which they had been looking forward with a passionate anticipation,
Like the Eton boy, Hilary hail been
all round lhc house and llie gardens
before he was many hours at home.
He had talked with everyone���kissed Mrs, Brown while he reminded
her of various misdeeds ol bis boyhood; whisked Caroline, the cook,
who was gelling very shorl of breath
and rather cranky, iulo a wild dance
round the kitchen; picked thc best
camellia in the hothouses for his bul-
ton-hole, while oltl Siilton, lhe head
gardener, who though! Silverlhorne
gardens antl all they possessed his
exclusive properly, smiled sourly, yet
The house was always different
when Hilary came home. He was
incorrigibly boyish aiul school-boyish. \Vhilc Hilary was away, life
seemed somewhat suspended at the
Manor House. The Sriuirc had all
the occupations of a country gentle-'
man. Hc sat on various boards mil
benches, Hc was a churchwarden,
lie shot and hunted, and did the other things oilier men of his class did,
even if he did them somewhat languidly to his inner consciousness.
From bis long devotion lo a rick mother he had learnt a way of going
through life soft-foot. And the companionship of a gentle litlle ghost
like Mary Champncys, with her spiritual eyes, ber cloudy hair, iier wistful smile, told for quietness. Wherefore the servants were wont to complain that you never could lell whether the master was in lhc house or
out of it; Brady, the Irish groom,
would say from time lo lime tl-ot
he'd give anything if ihe master'd
cursed him now and again as the old
Colonel used to do at home in Mayo;
and the Irish horse, he felt sure, was
as lonesome as himself for a bit of
strong talking to.
Hilary had beard all about lhe accident in detail, and about Mrs. Bartlett and hc.r occupation of the old
lodge. Hc was insatiable for nn>\s
of everybody. When it came to the
Souths���Margaret had not answered
his last letter, hc complained ��� the
Squire's brows took a line of pain
and bewilderment. After a lull the
talk about Lady South had broken,
out again, and worse than before. Tl.e
strange gentleman, Mr. Langton, if I
lhat was his name, had reappeared on
lhe scene, not staying this time, bul
coming for a few hours at a time, lie
and Lady South had been r.ecn together, walking and talking in 'ittle-
frcqucntcd places, with Margaret
somewhere not very far off, keepi' u
There were so few strangers at Silverdale 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���
tall and dark, clean-shaven, distinguished, with a somewhat worn,
handsome face. The Squire hati
come upon him and Lady Soulh once
in the woods, and she bad introduced him nervously; there bail been a
perceptible pause before the name,
They bad spoken a few words, and
llie Squire had gone on, leaving the
two silling on the seat ;by thc pond,
in tht damp of thc winter day, Lady
South's delicate skirts trailing in the
sudden leaves and wet grass. She
..ad looked miserable, poor thing,
with blue shadows about her lips, he
eyes bright and feverish, a liccli..
spot in her cheek that spoke of pain.
They hail been debating something
eagerly when lhe Stpiire appeared,
lhc man apparently pleading, llic woman looking down immovable a! lhe
dead leaves under her pretty shoes.
The Squire was almost certain _s
he moved away that Margaret eluded
him, gliding quickly down a gamekeeper's path through the thick undergrowth. He might have becn
sure If he had wished; bul he had not
wished; he had walked away wilh a
trouble in his heart. Was the poor
thing being pushed ovcr thc precipice
by.thc brutality of her wicked old
htfsband? and was?���ah, no, it wis
beyond thinking that Lady South
could involve her young daughter in
anything questionable. When lie
thought of Margar.et's clear eyes be
said lo himself that no matter how
things looked, he must believe that
there was a sufficient and an innocent

Unfamiliar Uses for Wood
Science Is Constantly Finding   New
Uses for Wood Products
In addition to the ordinary uses oi
wood with which we arc familiar,
mankind is dependent upon lhe forest for u variety of products whose
appearance does not indicate their
origin, say members of the Federal
Forest Service, -iiiin.ei-ous as these
product! are, and a.s extensive .is is

is constantly learning new constituents which enter into the make-up ol

which these constituents and those

Charcoal, as everyone    knows,    is
essential for the manufacture of black
powder. All ol 111" acetone used as a
solvent iu making nitrocellulose powders is derived from acetic acid, a
product of hard-wood distillation,
Great Britain, it is said, is dependent
upon tlie United Slates for acetone
used in making cordite, Black walnut is a standard for gunstocks, and
has been so much iu demand for the
pasl two years lhat our supply uf this
valuable wood has been considerably
reduced and other woods, notably
birch, are being substituted. From.
Europe comes the complaint that
there is a shortage of willow for
making wooden legs. I
By converting cellulose, one oi the
elements of wood, into a gelatinous
material, known as viscose, a wide
field is opened up for the ulilizalion

to the. already lengthy list. Many oi

land under summcrfallow in Manitoba
in 1916 was 10-1, in Saskatchewan 103,
and in Alberta 90, Thc figures for
1915 wcrc 77, 71 and 74 respectively.
There will obviously bc a great deal
more land in cultivation in Western

Interesting Conclusions Drawn Prom
Tracing French Ancestry
Thoughtful drivers into Canadian
history have drawn attention to lhe
fact that the French of Lower Canada arc more akin lo ourselves than
we have been accustomed lo suppupc.
Their ancestors came  from  Itrillauy
and Normandy. The Bretons are
brothers to the Celtic, Irish, Ihc
Welsh and lhc Highland Scottish.
The Normans were yf Scandinavian
blood, ami essentially identical with
the Northmen who scourged England under the name of Danes, occupied that par: of France from which
Came William the Conqueror and his
retinue, and even adventured Into the
Mediterranean as far as Sicily. It
would bc difficult, therefore, to say
whether the early explorers and scl-
tlers along thc St. Lawrence in the

rooms. It is so often stormy that the
mother docs not gel him out in the
fresh air as often as she should, lie
estches colds which rack hisssliltlo

out of order and be becomes peevish

mother should keep a box of Baby's

Profits of London Hotels
A hint of the vast expenditure of
money in London al this lime is given by the annual financial statement
of the Strand antl the Regents Palace
hotels, two quite ordinary English
hostels, by the way. The statement goes on to show that the net
profit for thc 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 are 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 havc contributed a goodly share of these profits, and incidentally eaten up a good
many tons of precious food.���Toronto Saturday Night.

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 the strcnRlh
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 bc valuable
iu 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 mighi show where the purchase, of a new machine would morc
than save its cost in time saved during the rush of a busy season. Before lho lead pencil idea is capitalized why not start of your own accord
to ascertain just how things arc going aud where savings of lime and
money could bc made?���The Practical Farmer.

eagerly inquired: "Do you think that

"Oh, yes," answered the conducto'r.

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

Even telephone men ol long experience are surprised at the greater voice distinctness when speaking directly into lhe telephone, When
you sneak directly into the telephone, a lower tone ol voice can be used
and your friend can hear easily.
Moreover, when you speak lower, the actual tone qualities ol your
voice are transmitted. When you speak loudly you unconsciously
adopt an unnatural tone of voice, with the result that much of that
intimacy that should he associated with face-to-face talk is lost.

.Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
If your hand trembles or is unsteady, it is a sure and early sign
that your nervous system is at fault.
The trouble if not taken in lime will
develop slowly to a worse stage, aud
there is no person more to bc pitied
than one suffering from nervous
trouble. Yuu fed unaccountably
weak after exertion, lose tlesh, turn
against food, and suffer palpitations
antl indigestion after eating. Sometimes sharp pains shoot down your
spine and legs, and often neuralgia
lobs you of your sleep at night.
These are some of the troubles that
indicate lhc presence of nervous disorders. If they are neglected they
resull in a complete nervous collapse,
sometimes in paralysis. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills have    won a great
| reputation in curing all forms of
nervous diseases. The nervous system depends entirely upon the blood
supply for nourishment, Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills actually increase trie
supply of rich, red blood; feed,
strengthen and tone the nerves, enabling them to perform their functions and dispel all signs of a breakdown. Mrs. II. Wainlott, Beaver

Fact versus Fancy
Showing How a Policy of Pacifism
Does Not Always Ensure
The Conservator, edited by Horace
Traiihe), biographer of Whitman and
saluted by Debs as the master pacifist of the counlry, quotes the following from Emerson: "Whenever
we see lhc doctrine of peace embraced by a nation wc may be sure il will
be one width has a friend in the bottom of the hearl of every man, even
to the violent and the basc; one against which no weapon can prosper."
And Belgium, Quaker among nations, adopted lhis doctrine, dedicating herself and being dedicated to
perpetual peace. She was to assail
no one and never to bc assailed. She
was Irue to her high faith, yet she
is lhc most devastated and desolated
of nations, her women .outraged, her
men led inlo slavery, Iter churches
and art monuments levelled, her
nourishing industries destroyed. No
weapon able to prosper against her?
Would it wcrc so.
Words beautifully allocated arc
pleasing to the car, but when thev
do not accord with fact Iheir ar
rangeinent is a vain exercise, I'd

Hoilowness of Materialism
Rudyard Kipling on the Relative Advantages of Money Making and
Other Pursuits
When Rudyard Kipling visited McGill University a few years ago, he
chose as thc theme of his address to
the student body thc 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
the importance to the nation of the
ideals conceived at college by its
active-minded young men, those who
arc destined for a certain moral and
intellectual leadership. Democracy
is not healthy unless the relative advantages of money-making and other
pursuits in life, arc generally understood and appreciated. ��� (Itlawa

By reason of his early unsuccessful adventures in the Near East, l'e
gathered invaluable knowledge in the
matter of organization and equip- \
menl which he has this year applied |
in other quarters. As a result of the
failure of his troops in the West in
lhc spring and autumn of 1915, to
attain their desired objective, hc
made certain changes in personnel,
vastly improved his organization behind the lines, and above all learned
that thc only way seriously to dent
lhc German front was with a preponderating supply of shot and shell.
He lost Bulgaria to the. allied
cause, but the experience he acquired
in that process enabled him to gather
in Rumania. Jusl now, by thc foi-
tune of war, Rumania appears to be
a doubtful military asset, if not a liability; but at the* time unquestionably the enlistment of this country
with the allies was a diplomatic
stroke of first importance.
Early in 1916 he adopted conscription. Had it been introduced a year
before, the war might have been over
today. Englishmen have, responded
in unprecedented fashion to their
King and country's call under the
voluntary system, but it was only
the certainty etf ultimate conscription that finally brought the enrolment up to five million men. The

When Mr, Lloyd ajcorgc began turn,

these Germans were manufacturing
and shooting aboul ten slu lis to tne
allies' one. There was a tiiiit- when
on certain sections of the bailie line
Hriiish gunners were limited to four
rounds per day. Upon America and
Japan Britain was depending for the
most part of its supplies iif machine
guns, hoavj artillery and high explosives, Now these conditions arc
all reversed. More than -1,1)1)0 private

more than ninety, mosl of them producing big guns, howitzers or high

shell cartridges is now greater by
millions than England's entire annual output before thc war. A nm
type of machine-gun is being turned
out by the hundred every week in

Practically the whole of England's

to devote at least pari of its activities to turning out war material.
The proportion of munitions now fui-

become almost negligible.
Moreover, England is not merely
supplying lier own big armies. She
has had to help out Russia, France
and Italy, especially tlle first-iian.eil.
It has been largely due to English
guns and English shells that the
Russians have been able to put lhe

Kaiser's New Year's proclamation lo

lhat liny   have   been "victorious   in

is not a preliminary to peace    conferences.
For dynastic reasons it is necessary lo make the German people believe thai Ihey have Avon the war and
that any peace which Germany may
propose is a victorious peace; but
there, will be-no peace on that basis.
France will die first.
Assuming that there.- i.-. aa honest
desire for peace iu Germany, uo progress will hc made until the Kaiser
and the responsible statesmen of
Germany begin to talk tlie language
of peace and stop talking the language of conquest, No nation can hr- g
itself into victory. There must bc
Germans of sufficient sanity to know
j that the Kaiser's proclamation is a
I piece of imperial demagogy, lhal Germany is nut victorious, and al b st
can achieve only a stalemate at inca'-

material, and    secure    immense    reserves lo remain unused until a day
iu the future.    Wc must organize as
genuine    an     industrial  mobilization

How to Produce Good Milk
V. R. Jones of the Dairy Husbandry Department at the South
Dakota State College, tells in the
Farm Journal, How to produce
good milk!--
Cows must be healthy and kepi
The bam should be kept clean,
well lighted and ventilated. The
barn yard should be kept clean aud
properly drained. Utensils should
be thoroughly washed and scalded
or steamed und kepi iu a clean room
Cows should be feel good whole*
some food and pure water.
Milkers and -attendants who come
iu contact with the milk should be
healthy and clean.
Cows .should not be fed at milking time or immediately before.
Dust from feed falls into the ni!lk
and contaminates it witli germs.
Wipe the udder and side of cow
with a damp cloth, and milk with
dry clean hands. Us. a small top
milking pail, This helps to keep
foreign matter from the milk.
Immediately after milking remove the milk to a separate room
from the barn, to be strained and
cooled. Cool the milk to as low a
temperature as possible without
freezing. Forty or fifty degrees
Fahrenheit retards growth to most
germs, and particularly to those that
cause milk to sour quickly.
Iu .summer keep flies out of the
barn and milk room. One fly may
carry as many as 150,000 germs to
the milk. These 'may be disease
germs. Manure should not be allowed to accumulate around the
barn���it is a breeding place for
flies, |
The number of bacteria in milk
depends largely upon cleanliness of
milking and handling, temperature
at which milk i.s kept, and age of
milk, Therefore, clean milk end

quick cooling are very important
factors in producing pure dairy

The Farmer's Friend
The Demonstration and address
on " The Dairy Cow" by Prof.
McDean at R. U. Hurford's ranch
on Wednesday afternoon last was a
very interesting one, Owing to
the blizzard of sleet and snow the
farmers were afraid to turn out in
large numbers, The Professor
gave a very important definition of
the necessary points in the dairy
cow with an essential for the profitable upkeep of dairy stock, The
farmers present were much impressed with the need of having their
stock tested and milk weighed
daily.    Much importance was giv
en to the necessity of having well
bred sires from good record dams.
A vote of thanks was extended to
thc Professor by the Comox Farmers' Institute for his thorough
practical demonstration. After
which Mrs. Hurford served hot tea
which was much appreciated.
There is a scarcity of codfish this
