Why should sho do it when she's took

Tlie next day, Mr. Sunningley, who
had scarcely slept at all the previous
night, rose enrly, and at breakfast

only to drive, but never to walk except
when lm himself could take her

said, "and the holidays will he on at

1 go sometimes into the Abbey? Can't

I am sufp there,?"
"Well, I enn't see any barm in your
going into the Abbey," said Mr. Sunningley. Go when there are crowds of
people, and if anyone Bpeaks to you,
give thnt person no answer, See that
you do so. nut now, ihls morning, I
want you lo drive to .Miss Lucy's
house, uud ask her If she will net as
your chaperon. Mrs. Gray will take
Mrs. Gray was now iu very good
spirits; she enjoyed driving out with
her bright little mistress. She told the
girl frankly that It was she who hud
managed the whole affair.
"But for my lvniarks to the master
about that drat of a woman following
you, there's no knowing what might
have happened," sho said. "But now
that, I haven't to he out w.ilh you all
hours o'f the day, I shall havo plenty
of lime to give to the servants, and lo
see after yonr comfort, too, Miss liar
bara. llul, I hope Miss Lacy is a strong
minded woman, nml will do what you
"Oh! She is .cry, very nice," said
Barbara, hut. she could not honestly
say in her heart, that Miss Lacy was
strong-minded, for il was ahoul the
very lust thing in the world that gentle, loving, good litlle woman was.
She was everything else���but, strong
minded   no, certainly not.
At Inst the carriage drew up outside th" liny house which Miss Lacy
kepi willi such pride.

"No, of course. I don't mind: hut

"Whnt is that, Mrs. Gray? Vou
mny be sure 1 will."
"Will you leave me alone with Miss
Lucy On no other condition will I
remain in ihe carriage while you are
talking to her."
Barbara suid. "Yes," hut she felt
certain thnt a great deal of Mr. Siuni-
iugley s money was going to he offered,
uml although she was delighted to
think that her dear friend was to get
It, yet, still she did not want to be a
greater expense than was possible to
ihe kind-hearted lawyer. Accordingly,
she went. Into the house und poked her
bright little face into Miss Lucy's tiny
parlor, where the gas stove was burn,
ing. and where 'lie elderly ludy, oppressed with u cold, was siding shivering over it. Barbara, in her fur jac
ket anil fur cap, rushed up to hor, exclaiming as she did so���

Uncle Horace, ns I call him, thought
iliut Mrs. Gray, his housekeeper, would
do us my chaperon���as though i
wanted chaperoning at   all���but.   It
turns nut that she finds she can't look
utter ihe bouse, for there are a great
many servants there -Mr. Sunulnglej
must be a very rich man���as well as
look after me. So Mr. Sunningley or,
in otber words, Uncle Horace, wnn.s
me to have another chaperon, and will
you be It'.'    Will you, dear, dear Miss
"Will  I   be    vour   chaperon,    my
"Yes.   1. know you will lie, paid well,
und I, out of my own money, enn pay
you a little, for I nm still reading to
thai poor old lady in Vauxhall Bridge
Road;  she pays inc. twelve shillings
a, week.  So, will you eome to nie? You
will be wanted to eome every morning and to go back again In the evening, and to take me everywhere.    I
never Knew l was so precious," said
little Barbara with a laugh.   "Hut according to Uncle Horace, 1 am, and he
was in au awful state of mind just because a woman���an ordinary, 1 must
say, unpleasant looking woman���followed  Mrs. Gray and me the other
day from  Vauxhall   Bridge   Road   to
Dean's    Yard.    Mrs. Gray was very-
angry, and  spoke to her in  a very
sharp way, and told her Hint If she did
not go away at once, she would cull
the police.    Mrs. Gray was so afraid
of her getting our address that she
made mo go into the Abbsy with her
mull' the woman was i|iiite out Of sight.
Now will you be my chaperon'.'   You
can't sny, 'no,' and it will add to your
income and go),, you comforts, und it
will give me such  pleasure.  Why, 1
can go ou with my education, I feel
myself  such   a   dreadfully   ignorant,
girl now that I am witli a learned man
like Mr, Sunningley.   He loves me lo
rend to blm In ihe evening, or to sing
to him; anyhow, 1 feel it my duty to
entertain him iu every possible way,
when he is at home.    Ile is quite as
though he wero my dear father. Oh!
don't yon think 1 am lucky, and won't
you do what. 1 want?"
"My child, it. is too amazing! Of
course, 1 will do what yon want. Hul
1 can scarcely lake it in. 1 don't think
1 could come lo you for a couple of
day., until my cold is better. As to
the money part���"
"Ob!     Mr.  Sunningley's  housekeeper. iMrs. Gray, is in ihe carriage -"
"The carriage, love!"
"Didn't I tell you there was a carriage kept for ine'.'   You don't, know
what a grand girl I am now! Mrs. Gray-
is  wnliing in  the carriage, and  she
said she would prefer to speak to you
alone about, the money, so will you see
"Yes, dear.    Of course. 1 will."
"Now it. is my turn to sit in Ibo carriage, while you talk to Mrs. Gray.   1
will send her in; 1 will tell hor you
have a bad   eold, and eun'r come into
the hull to see her."
lu n lew minutes Mrs. Gray and
Miss Lucy were sealed opposlto each
other In the shabby little parlor. Mrs.
Gray was taking very sharp accounl
of Miss Lacy.
"To ten the truth, madam," sho
snid. "I um wondering if you are n

duties on the following day.
"Unless you hear io the contrary,"
she said, "j will be with Miss Chance
on Friday morning. And you maybe certain I will take the greatest pos-
Bible euro of lier. Whal hour would ll
be right for uio to, arrive?"
"Well, madam, the young ludy Is. lo
tell the truth, extremely restless, <H'
course, she is young."
"Shu was always Ulso tbat," suid
Miss Lucy. "I was her govornoi . ut
the dear Rectory for years, nud 1 know
her character well."
"She will lake it out of you. madam,
I only hnd one duy of her; hul, of
course, it will he different for yon,
who know ull her ways, and with u

madam, you ought not lo be ut No. 7a,

on Friday morning, You will bo off
duty, madam, each day at six, when
the carriage will tnke. you home again.
And 1 trust, soon tu fatten you up, for
I pride myself on being n very good
|cook. You ought not to hnve one of
these miserable gas stoves, madam���
you'll excuse me saying so���but a
I good, cheerful, English lire. 1 am sure
my master would gladly supply the
necessary coal���anything to keep the
chaperon of his young lady in health.
I'll mention the matter to him."
"You must do nothing of Hie kind,"
said Miss Lacy, looking almost angry
for her. "1 have my pride, please un
derstand, and, with the income r shall
now be earning, 1 can well afford to
have a fire ln one of my sitting rooms."
Accordingly the whole thing was arranged. Barbara could not refrain
from kissing her old Mend, although
Mrs. Gray did not consider it wise;
and tbey went back again to Demi's
Yard. Mrs. Gray was now in high
spirits, and really enjoyed her carriage drive so much, thai she suggested to Barbara to go as far as Richmond in the afternoon, and let her see
that beautiful place and even have tea
on the celebrated Terrace.
Now. while Barbara and Mrs. Gray
were spending a truly delightful day
together, Miss Laey was doing up her
very slender wardrobe, forgetting all
about her cold, and thinking of the delightful time which lay before her, and
bow quickly she would pay off one or
two debts whicli lay heavily on her
conscientious mind; tiny- debts, il Is
true, but tbey were a fercat. deal for
a woman of her slender means to have
to meet. They had been incurred during illness; she had never been able lo
settle quite up with the chemist and
the doctor. They were very patient.
but the thought, of their waiting for
tlieir money gave the good little woman anxious days and mnny a nightmare. Now nil that was over-she
was happy, and happy in the most
pleasam way. For she wuuld lake
care of her own dear, dear Miss Barbara, Ihe girl she loved best in the
wide world. "And won't I look after
her!" thought Miss Lacy, "(here's no
doubt mi Hint point."

Tho government Is taking steps to
slop so far as possible a persistent
pro-Germntul and pro-Austrian agitation lu Boiue of the foreign settlements, particularly In Western Canada, which might later on lead to

Maritime Provinces thai uso wood as
tbelr raw material -nol to speak of
the many millions of feel of timber

Such is the conclusion of an investigation recently made by the Forestry
Branch of the Dominion Department
of the Interior Into the wood-using
Industries of tho Maritime Provinces,

wood used is nearly $3,700,000; of this
entire amount only 12.". per cent.���
aboul 25,000,000 feet  -was imported.
Twenty-eight kinds of wood aro
used in the industries, spruce occupying first place. A list of the uses of
ench particular wood In the Industries
is a feature of the bulletin.
The report Is compiled from reports
sent in by over six hundred manufacturers of tho province, a classified list

single handed encounter with a German patrol standing out prominently

It appears that the Sengalese, a
black giant who had learned to operate a motor car in Africa, was detailed to drive the machine of a French
general. In the course of operations
he was ordered to bo at a certain
point at a specified hour to meet his
commander. Tlio order was impressed
on him with military precision.
The Sengalese started in good time
but on the way thither encountered a
German patrol. He seized his rifle
and completely exterminated tho detachment.
Promptly on the hour he arrived at
the rendezvous, the car filled with

which Britain held and the Ideals for
which lirltons stood throughout the

in Canada but nobody could say we
had absorbed them," he said. "Though
two civilizations remained side by

Editor Review
Dear Sir,���As the letter signed

readers, I would be obliged if you
would allow me the opportunity of
disclaiming all authorship of the

Editor Review,
Dear Sir:���It is a matter of serious regret that as close to our own
doors as Cumberland there should
be a cumber of families in actual
want and receiving assistance from
the Government. The men are
Idle I suppose because they cannot
find employment. Now this is a
bad state of affairs morally for the
people who' recieve'the assistance,
and financially for the Government
and is capable of being remedied.
What I would suggest is that the
Government acquire a piece 0/ land
in some suitable locality and use
these assisted men in making a
farm and instead of giving them a
bare existance and getting nothing
in return; that they be paid say
$2,50 per day and be required to
live aud work on the place until
they found better employment.
By some such arrangement as this
they would cease to be paupers,
and would be returning what they
recieve in the land value they
would create. This can be started
in a week or two if the proper persons will take hold of it.
Will not the Board of Trade or
some influential body take the matter up and approach the Government with a view to putting this
or some such scheme into effect; it
needs to be done immediately as
there is nothing but loss in delay.
Yours truly,

\ w month:, ago, Gi leral Sir lun

"Every thinking soldier who has
served on our recent Indian campaigns is aware that for the requirements of such operations, a good

He ulso wrote: "Why, there is material In tho north of India, und In

Much Pain From
Kidney Disease
Doctored in Vain Until Dr, Chase's
Kidney-Liver  Pills  Were  Used
Kidney derangements aro often associated with disorders of tlie liver
and bowels, and under lliose conditions ordinary kidney medicines usually fall to effect cure. It is because
of their unique, combined action on
the liver, kidneys nud bowels that Dr,
Chase's Kldney-Llver Pills are so generally successful, even In the most
(���'.implicated cases.
Mr. Emanuel Bernard, farmer, St.
Paul's, Kent County, N.B., writes'
"About eighteen years ago my wifo
was had with kidney dtsoase, and suffered greatly from headaches, pains
in bowels and stomach, and lier heart
was affected. For a year she was
treated by her doctor, with no apparent benefit, She then used five boxes
ot Dr, Chase's Kldney-Llver Pills with
most satisfactory results. This gave
us such a good opinion of Dr. Chase s
Kidney-Liver pills that we always
keep them in tho house to be used for
all derangements of the kidneys, liver
and bowels." Dr, Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills, 25c a box, 5 for Jl.on, all

The Difference
It is simply a question of standards.
Defenceless misfortune arouses in
Germans the desire to trample and insult, and in Britons tho desire to succor and befriend. It will take an aeon
at least to educate, them in such matters up to our level. We could never,
thank heaven., bo degraded to theirs.

Despatches That Thrill the Empire
The most famous despatch of ucid
eru  times  wns the one  from    1. M
Roberts, announcing   the   relief   ot
Mulching, which seni a thrill throughout the whole empire.
It concludes: "The Hying column
nailer the command of Colonel It.
Million, which relieved Mafeklng,
marched at the rate of fifteen miles u
day for fourteen consecutive days, uml
successively accomplished lis object,
despite the determined opposition of
the enemy." simple ami direct, like
the man who wrote il.
ihiveiocii's despatch concerning the
relief of I.uckuow is one of ihu nation's treasure!, "The cheers of the
troops echoed through lhe courts uf
the palace," ho writes, "responsive to
lho bugle sound, and on they rushed
to assured victory. The enemy could
nowhere wltlutand them. In u few
minutes the whole of Ihe buildings
were In our possession."
uf Wellington's despatches, the
mosl luterestlng, and one of the i��.��� 11f.-
est, being that which concerns the
Battle ot Waterloo, He tlrsi describes the action In some detail and
the Immensity of the resuli, uud concludes: "Such a desperate action
! could not he fouuhl and such advantages gained without great loss,
and 1 am sorry lo add thai ours have
been Immense. The army has never

It Is one of the greal thrilling messages of the world.
The despatch Is simple and unadorned, It wus written by Nelson's

Ungwood. "The over-to-be-lamented
death," it runs, "of Vloe-Admiral Lord
Viscount Nelson, who. in tho laic
conflict with the enemy, fell in the
hour of victory."
Then follows an account, of the
great fight, concluding with a generous nolo of praise for the gallant
flght put up by onr foe, and finishing with the words, "It pleased the
Almighty Disposer of all events to
grant His Majesty's arms a complete
and glorious victory."

Trap of the Marne -Allies' Retreat at a Critical
Juncture  Turned  the  Tables
Whether or not llie
Britain and   France
knowledge of the matter themselves,
the world as large, at any rule, has
never been supplied with a definite
reason for lho suileiln swerving of thu
German armies southeastward from
the very gates of Paris. There had
been no aertous repulses experienced
by Ihem prior to that sudden change
of plan, but Just when tbo world wus
expecting lhe bombardment of lho
French capital to begin, Ihey turned
partly around and marched right past
their objective.
The latest reports of General Sir
John French, covering the hitler ond
of tho relreat of tho nlllcs to tho
Jliirnc, und tlie llghl'iig from liieu on,
do not Btnto a reason for (ho enemy's
change of plans, being seemingly purposely vuguo on tbo slage of tho campaign. Hut these reports, however, do
provide some hints which are of assistance In speculating as to the
cause of the sudden swerve of the
in ihe llrst place, wo heard much in
those discouraging days of retreat
shout thu desperate attempt of the
��: emy to tun. the extreme left of tho
allies, the British under General
French being on tlm defensive side of
ihls attempted turning movement.
Before wo know whether this movement wns to bo successful, word cume
of tho unexplained, swerve of Von
Kluok. Statements by General French
throw somo light here, however.
While the Eu.;lisb were retiring before
Von Kluck tbey referred to by
the comnmnder as forming tlio extreme left of tbo allied lino, then,
without the change being expluino.l,
wo Und General French saying In his
report that on August 29 "three or four
more German corpB were opposing the
sixth I;.ench army, on my left."
That is, prior to August 29 the
British were on tho extreme left, but
��n that date tho 'sixth French army"
had taken the extreme northwest position. Tills would seem to clear up
the situation wllh respect to the
turning movement attempted by Von
Kluck, and at tho samo time provido
a reason for the swerve to the southeast. Apparently General Joffre saved the left by sending up n new
French army, and when Von Kluck
found this new obstacle in his path
he had either to abandon his turning
movement or continue It'at great
risk well to the northwest. Itutlier
than do this, and also because the
German armies advancing on Paris
farther south wore meeting with difficulties, Von Kluck decided to go to
the iast t-nd try to effect a junction
with the Crown Prince.
With the German right checked by
tlio presence of this sixth army, the
allies had to decide whether or not
it was time to rest tlieir retreat and
institute a definite counter-offensive.
It was the determination of General
.Toffre, assented to by General French,
to fall back still further which led
the Germans into trc trap of the
studying the report, of General
French on this stage of the operations, tho New York Evening Post
evolves a very logical speculation as
to the southeas erly niovo of the
enemy. Quoting the paragraph of the
report: "This wns the situation when
I received a    visit from    General
offices of | Joffre at my headquarters.   *   *   ���
definite I strongly represented my position
the French commander in chief.
��� * 1 finally arranged with General Joffre to effect a further short
retirement towards tho line between
Coinpicgiio and Solssons," tho Post
Kvldenily it was tho British commander's belief tbat the tlmo hud
come to mako a sland nnd lhat he
yielded only to strategical reasons
propounded by General Joffre. What
wero the i) reasons? Apparently
those; that while lho Sixth French
Army on tho British left might bo
sent forward agalMt the German
line, and so possibly bring an end
to the retreat, it. was more protlt-
able to hold this army back until
the German advance bad come so
far south thut this French army,
Instead of being sent against, the
German front, could bo thrown
against th? enemy's think, General
.loffre's reasons must have, been convincing because wo llnd tbat not only
did General French consent to make
a "short retirement toward the line
between Couipiegno and Solssons,
but that lu the course of the following
week ho 1 ill back fifty miles further
south to below tho Marne.
"It thus follows that Gen. Joffre,
llko Gen. French, recognized that
lho German advance against Paris
had failed by tho end of August,
but, that Gen. .Toffre foresaw, what
Gen. French did not, that von Kluck,
shut off from Paris, would swerve to
the east, and so expose his flank to
the new French army. It was a bold
move to anticipate on the part of tho
enemy. Why should von Kluck sheer
to the southeast, and march with his
right flunk across the enemy's front?
Here the probable answer is that
von Kluck knew, what Gen. Joffre
know, that on tho left of the German line things were not going well;
that tho Crown Prince was being
forced back, or,  at least, held    In
Value of Irrigation
Farmers of Southern Alberta Petition
Government to Undertake lm
gat I on scheme
Farmers In districts In Southern Alberta who aro not served by u:i_ Irrigation project vill appeal to tha Dominion government through tho department of tho Interior, to extend irrigation to their lands. Tho present
season has demonstrated ln a most
conclusive manner tho advantages of
Irrigation, as irrigated farms havo
one crops, whereas In districts where
Irrigation was not available, the resu'-t
has beeu disappointing. Farmers in
tho district ranging from township
10, rnugo IU to range 26 In the south,
and township 18, range 19 to 20 In the
north, west of tho .th meridian, are
not as yet served by any Irrigation
project ,but they have had opportunity to see lho success attained by Irrigation farmers in the Canadian Paolflo
Hallway Irrigation belts. These farmers ure deeply lu earnest In llieir efforts to secure Irrigation for ihelr district, so much   o that a petition is
being circulated asking tlio Dominion
government to proceed with tho installation of such a system nnd the
farmers express ihelr willingness to
havo bonds raised on their lands to
cover the cost of the system, which
they will Undertake to repay with Interest ln Ml years.
Tbo petition which Is being circulated among the farmers and meeting
with  their hearty support recites  In
part as follows:
To the Hon. W. J. Koche,
Minister Of tho Interior,
Ottawa, Ontario:

districts in tlie province ol! Alberta,
ranging from township 10, range 19,

ot tho 4th meridian, request that tho
Dominion government proceed to con-
f'ruet and place In operation at the
earliest possible time, such an Irrigation system r.S has been discovered
from the reoert survey lo be possible,
as wo believe It is the only salvation
of the residents of our district, and Is
of the most vital interest In the pursuit of agriculture, fostering the mixed farming ideas, and the future of
our country depends upou the action
to be taken at once.
Ti, meet tlie. cost of construction we
will bond our land, and we are willing
to pap the capital cost of Installing
this sXiteni wll,h Interest at four per
cent., extending the time of repayment of the, cost, of construction over
a petted of forty years, tho first pay

taking the risk of a flank attack from .ment of such sum of indebtedness to
the French, on the chance of breaking
through the allied centre, or, at the
vory least, relieving tlio pressure
cgalnst the Gorman left. Over-confidence may have induced von Kluck to
believe that a heavy rear guard would
be sufficient to keep the Sixth French
Army hack from his Hank until his
main force, joined with von Bulow's,
had broken through the French centre.
Von Kluck took the chance, and
lost. Gen. Joffre took the chance and
won. It murt have required courage
of a very high kind on the part of the
French commander in chief to fall
back again and again, while keeping
unemployed an army which might
have been brought In to check the
enemy. But what Gen. Joffre aimed at
was not tho mere halting of the German advance, but the assumption of
a vigorous counter-offensive. To have
sent his new Sixth Army forward
to meet the enemy would have been
only a continuation of the defensive. To keap It back, north of Parts

Treachery of the Enemy

A French officer who is in hospital

our sentries warned us of tho approach of the cneiup.
"The Germans, who had been Inking cover in a wood, crept to within

and charged. I commenced volley firing, and whole ranks of the Germans
fell, but they continued to advance.
Our well-directed fire arrested tholr
advance when they were thirty yards
from our trenches.
"During the night a bugle sounded
'Cease fire!' but it was a German
bugle. I was not deceived, and 1
si Duted with all my power so as to be
heard by the enemy, 'Fire independently.'   The Germans fled.
"A few minutes later a Uerman officer uppti.red carrying n white flag-.
I advanced from the trench, accompanied by four men. 'We aro sixty,'
said the envoy, 'and we wish to surrender.'   I replied 'Advance in order.'
"Four men wounded in the legs
staggered forward, and my men, believing the fight finished, showed
themselves above the trenches. A
Maxim hidden in the wood immediately opened fire on us with a hail of
bullets, while a fresh attack was commenced.
"I gave the order to recommence
volleying, and for the time the Prussians decamped. They left many dead
and wounded, and the following day
we found that six men, armed with

through the war. First news of the
fight reached him on Aug. 29, and at
that time tlio Hudson Bay Co. had
stepped the advances to the Indians. It
is customary for the company to stake
the Indians in the fall In lho form of
a "debt" of provisions, which is fixed
according to tlie hunting abilities of
the debtor. When lhe season opens
the following year the Indians and
Eskimos redeem the debt, with furs.
As f esc advances have been cut off
the natives are in a serious predicament.
Mr. Todd said Mr. Wilson, the Hudson's Buy Company's manager for
James Bay showed him a store house
of furs, which at ordinary times
would be worth $100,000, but which at
current market prices are valued at
$17,000. At White River tho Indians

Kilometres and Miles
Frequently In the French war office
reports of fighting, distances ure
seated In kilometres. The simplest
way to convert kilometres into miles
ls to dlvlce ' y two, divide tho result
by four, and add the two results.
Thus, 500 kilometres divided by two
equals 62.5, and 62.5 added to 250
gives 312.6; so that there are that
number of miles in 500 kilometres. To
convert miles into kilometres, multiply by eight and divide the result by
live.���Victoria Colonist.

on the most important matters relating to the welfare of o.ir city
: Tu .!���___��_ my views ark':���!"'.___      i!55
1.   That the City Council should give their services free of
charge for the first year
_.   That the City should be governed  independent of miy
party politics
3. That the Municipality should be devilled into waN and
thereby prevent the exercise of any partiality or selfishness lhat ini_lit arise
4. That no increase in the rate of taxation should be made
for the forthcoming year on real property. Th ��� only
case in which I would be in favor of any increase would
be on the saloons
5. That all By-laws and other matters appertaining to the
welfare of the City should be thorouguiy gone into by
the Council mi that justice maybe done to all persons
living within the Municipality
6. Tlmi no outlay tay the Council should exceed the revenue
earned by the City For the coining year
7. That all streets, sidewalks and other public winks should
as far as possible be done liy statute labor
8. That no private company or companies should be allowed
to exploit om public utilities nthout first making terms
and conditions with the City Council
If 1 am elected I intend to do my very besl for the interests
of the whole of the City, and as I can devote the most of my
time to the interests of the J. colors, I solicit their voles at the
