THE PERFUME
Of THE
LADY IN BLACK
By GASTON LEROUX.
A«ib«- at "ThaMfatart el tka Yallew

COPYRIGHT   1W9. BY MINT A NO'S
(Continued.)
Poor Lady In Black! The yen rn toga
of utr sooi revealed themselves iu Oer
word*}. "It is tialshed!" And the fact,
as she believed it, tuuile her turret all
tbe horror ot the scene which hod
piisse.1 lo this rot>ni. l.nrsun no inure!
Larsiin buried- burti*d lo the putato
Buck:
And we nil sorted up In atTrlght
when the Lattj in l*i-i«-k began (o
lauyb ttie rrautlc laugb nr a mad woman: She ceased tu suddenl) as she
had tie^'uu, hiiU a hurriuie atlllneM followed. We dared look neither at her
nor at each other. Une was the tlrst
lo speak.
."It is atl over!" she said. "Forgive
me   i won't laugh again."
Aud then Uouletubllle said, speaking
In a very low tooe:
"It will be over when we know bow
be got In."
Kouletnnille opened the door ' aod
called Beruiei and his wife, aud a general consultation took place.
Itouletubllle. who wan sitting at Dar.
sac's desk taking notes, arose and said:
"So lar lt Is very simple. We huv*
only oue hope. It Is in tbe few moments that Uernler was oft guard
about *J o'clock. At least at thut time
no oue was In front of the door, but
tftere was some one behind It. tt was
you, M. Darzac. Can you reiterate,
after having thoroughly searched your
memory, lhat when you went Into
your room you instantly dosed the
door and drew the bolt?"
"t can," replied Darzac wlmenly,
And he added; "And I opened tbnt
door only when you and Sinclair
knocked upon It.    I strew it."
And !•' saying this, us later events
prt,,d, tbe uiati spoke the truth.
Uouletubllle said:
"It Is well, Darzac. you have closed
tbe circle. The apartment In the
square tower is now closed as tirmly
as was the yellow room, which wus
like a strong box. or us the 'inexplicable gallery.' "
"One would guess Immediately that
l.arsan was mixed up in the affair."
1 exclaimed. "It Is the same mode
of procedure."
*S'es,''observed Mine. Dnrziie. "Yes,
M 'Salnclalr. tt Is the same mode of
procedure." Ana she untustened her
buabund's collar lo show the wounds
bidden beneath it
"See!" she said. "They are the same
nail prints.    I know (hen) well."
"No; It Is not the same thing," said
Itouletabille. "It Is Just the opposite.
In Ihe yellow room there was a tnwly
missing, lu the room In the round
tower i here ts u body too many."
CHAPTER XIV.
Mystery of the "Body Too
Many.*'
.VylKXT duy, 11 o'clock. Where
\]      wus   Itouleinbllle?     Ilia   bed
\\ had not beeu disturbed. 1
* I dressed myself hurriedly aod
weut to look for my friend, whom I
found lu the outer court, lie took tue
by the arm and led mc Into the vast
drawing room of la Louve. There
1 was surprised (o Uud, although It
was not yet time lor luncheon, everybody assembled. M. anil Mine. Darzac
wero there. Mine. Kdlth, from tbe
dark corner where she was reclining
ou a sofa, saluted us.
"Ah, here la M. Itouletabille with bla
friend, Salnclalr! Now we sball kuow
why we have nil beeu summoned
here."
|Ie addressed himself to Mme.
Itance.
"First of all, mud a me, permit me to
Inform you that I have decided to suppress the 'guard' which you kindly allowed me to establish, although It
vexed you."
"Ab. really, are you going to withdraw the guard trom the chateau, Sl.
Houletabllle'.' Well, I um very glad to
bear it, although I assure you thut It
did uot vex me In the least," exclulm-
ed Mme. Edith, with uu affectation of
gayety, "Uu the contrary, the fact
proves to me that M nnd Mine. Darsac are uo longer tn uny danger."
"This Is true, am dame," replied itouletabllie, "since last night."
Mme Darzac COUId not refruln from
a runty movement which no one suva
myself perceived.
"Ho much the bet ler," cried Mme.
Kdlth "Muy beaveu ne praised1 Uut
bow ts It that my busbaud and I are
the last to heur (lie uewsV Interesting
things must Imve been happening last
night. 'The nucturuui trip of M. Dur*
tue to Castclitr was one ot them without doubt"
As she spoke I could nee Die embarrassment of M. and Mme Darzac. The
former, utter h glance ut his wife,
started to speak, but Uouletubllle
would not permit him to do so.
"Madame, you should know the reason why M. und Mine I tannic have
ceased lo run any danger. Your husband, madame. lias told you of ihe
frightful tragedy of the (Handler two
years ngo, and you know also, of
course, that the reason why we hnve
placed such a strong guard here
around M Durzac and his wife waa
because we had fceeu a certain man
nguln "
"I do "
"Well, ihls man cunnot appear ngain
•ver."
"What bus become of hliur
"lie Is deud."
"When did he die?"
"Last night. He wus killed lu tba
square tojver,"
Wc all sprang to our feet at thla
declaration In tha greatest agitation.
M. and Mme. Itance seemed completely stupefied by thu words which they
hud heard, uud M. antl Mme. Daraae
and myself were plunged into the
most profound agitation by the fuel
tbut Itouietuhlllo had uot hesitated to
reveal the secret.
"In the amiiire tower?" cried Mute.
Edith.   "And   wbo.  tbeu.   bus  killed
him?"
M   Hubert Darzac," replied Rouletabille.
Mine. Kdlth arose, seized Darzac by
tbe band aud exclaimed with au em*
phasis which made me decide that 1
had Judged her wrongly when 1 called
ber affected:
"Bravo. M Robert! All right! You
are a gentleman!"
Arthur Ranee arose and said, bla
face as pallid aa though he bud seen a
gbost:
"Larsan is dead. Well, no one la
more rejoiced thau myself to kuow It,
and tf he bus received the punishment
due to his crimes from the huud of M.
parzac uo one la more to be congratulated than M. Darzuc. But 1 consider
tbat It would be wrong for M. Durzuc
1 to make any attempt to conceal uu act
I which Is au bouor to himself. It would
j be better to inform the authorities. If
they come to learn of this affair from
, outsiders, think whut the situatiou
i would be! If we give out the information ourselves we shall show that
au act of Justice has been committed,
tf we conceal anything we sball place
ourselves lu tlle category of mulefuc-
tors."   tie paused.
"I believe that my husband Is right."
Kdlth added. "But we ought to know
just what has happened."
Aud she addressed herself directly
to M. and Mme. Darzuc. But both of
the latter were still under the spell of
surprise which Uoulettibille had caused them hy his remarks, who that
very morning in my presence had
promised ro be silent uud had swum
us atl to silence. M. Itance repeated
nervously: "Why should we conceal
anything? Why should we? We must
tell everything.''
i AH at once the re(sjrter seemed- to
take a sudden resolution. Be leaned
toward Arthur Ranee, whose right
hand was resting on a cane, the heud
carved of Ivory by a fatuous cutt**': six
Dieppe. Houletabllle took tbe eftoe iu
Qls hand.
"May I look at it?" he aaked. MI am
an amateur Ivory carver myself. It is
really very beautiful. It is a tigure by
Lambesse, and there is no better workman on the Normnu shore."
The young man seemed to be entirely eugrossed in studying the cane. As
he touched the curving tne stick fell
from his hand and rolled toward Darzac. I picked It up aud returned it Immediately to M. Hauce Itouletubllle
cast a withering look at me, aud I
read io tbut glance tbat somehow oc
other 1 bud showu myself an idiot.
Rouletabille asked abruptly of Mra,
Itance:
"Well, madame, do you think we
ought to inform the authorities'*"
"l think so more thuu ever," she replied.   "Tbut which we ure powerless
to discover they would certainty hud
' out.  And I waru you of oue thing. M.
Houletabllle, aud lhat is thut we may
already be too late ln seektog out the
officers  ot Justice.    It   we   hud   told
. them of our fears at the very begin*
nlng   you   would   have   beeu   spared
some   long   hours   of   watching   aud
sleepless ulglfls   which  huve profiled
', you nothing, since, as uow appears,
j tbey did uot prevent what you dread*
ed from coming to pass."
Itouletabille motioned Mme. Kdlth
to a chair and again picked Dp the
cane which M. Itance hud laid dowu
upon u sofa. Ue replied sharply to
Mme. Kdlth:
"Madame, you are wrong In assert- !
Iug thut all the precautious, wblcb 1
had taken for the surety of al. and
Mine. Darzuc have been useless. If I
atu obliged to acknowledge the unei*
plalnable presence of one body too
muny 1 am also compelled to refer to
tbe absence— perhaps less Inexplicable
—of one member of our own party."
"What Is tbat?" Inquired Mme. Kdlth,
with a  mocking smile,    "lu such a
case 1 full to see how you Und any j
mystery," giving a Ulppuut Imitation
of tbe reporter's words—"a body too '
ninny on tbe one side, uu unexplained
; absence ou the other.    Everything II
! for tbe best."
I    "Perhaps,"    rejoined     Itouletabille.
"But the moat frightful thing of all la |
I that   tbe   unexplained   dlsuppearunct
j comes Just at the right time to make
' known to us apparently tbe identity J
1 of tbe 'body too many.'    Madame, J
I regret to tell you that the person wa
caunot Und ls none otber than your ■
. uncle. M. Bob."
1     "Old Bob!" screamed the young woman.   "Old Bob has disappeared!"
"Unfortunately It is true," said ltou- |
letabille.
And he let tbe cane drop to tha
ground.
But the news of the sudden dlsap-
pea ranee of uid Bob had so seized the
Barnes nnd the Durzucs thut no ona
paid any attention to the cane as lt
felt.
"My deur Sulticlalr. wlll you be kind
enough to pick up thut cuue?" asked
Houletabllle. ,
1 did us I was ordered, uud quickly,
too,   hot   Rouletabllle   did   not  eveu
deign tu thank me.  Mme. Kdlth turned
like ii lioness upon Hubert Durziie, who
recoiled  from   her  almost   lu   fear as
she shrieked.
"Vou have killed my uncle!"
Her husband and  myself with difficulty   prevail led   her   from   flying   at
him.     We entreated   her   to  be cat*A
ind to remember that because ber uncle   bad  absented   himself  from  tke
i en lunula  uid   not  ooceaaarliy   mean
that he hid disappeared In lhe potato  '
' sack, .ind we  reproached  HuuU-tubtllf  '
with his brutality lu  blurting out uu  <
' idea whkb could only be. ut the present  time, ut all  events,  u   hypothesis
of his uneasy  mind.    But  the young
woman turned scornfully.
"M. Salnclalr. ]  sincerely hope that '
my   uncle's   absence   from   here   Will
i ouly  be  uf short  dura I lon.   for  if  it 1
should turn out otherwise I should ac- '
| cuse  yuu of  being an  accomplice  In ,
j the   moat   cowardly   murder.     As   to ,
I you."   turning   to   Itouletabille,   "the
I more   Idea   that   you   d it red   compare
I Larsan  with   my   uncle.   Ihe   kindliest i
I soul and  lhe greatest  scholar  of  his
time, forbids me to consider you an a {
■ friend, and I hope you will relieve me '
! of your presence "
I    "Madame,"   replied   Honletabllln.   "I
wns just ahout to usk yout permission
| to leave.   I have a Journey of twenty-
i four hours lo take.   I shall return lo j
be of assistance to yuu in accounting |
| for ihe disappearance of your uncle."
"It my unde has not returned wllti- I
In twenty-four  hours  I shall  lodge a
complaint lu the hands of the police,
monsieur." I
"It la a good plan, madame, bul Unit >
I advise you to quostlon »ll thd serv-
ants  in   whom  you   have  conlidonce,
particularly  Mattonl.   Question bim—
question him.   Ah. before I take my
departure allow me to leuve with you
this   excellent   and   historical   hook"
And Houletabllle drew a small volume
I from his pocket.   "This Is a work of
[ M.   Albert   Butallle,   a   copy   of   bla
j 'Civil and Criminal Cases,' In which I
advise you to read the adventures, disguises,     travesties     and     deceptions
wrought   by  an   Illustrious  swindler
■ whose true name wus Ballmeyer.
"After having reud this," he went
on, "ask yourself carefully whether
! the cleverness of such an Individual
; would bave found very great difficulty
Iu presenting himself before your eyes
uuder the guise of uu uncle whom you
bad not seen lu four years, for It wus
four years, madame, since you had
seen Old Bob until thut time that you
started out to the heart of the rumpus
to look for him. As to the memory ot
M. Arthur Itance. who started out
with you on lhat journey, It would be
even less distinct (Imu your own, aud
be would be more capable uf being deceived than yourself with your lutul
tlon of kinship added to your recollections of your relative. I atu going, but
I shall return, for If It Is necessary to
arrive at the Intolerable conclusion
that Larsan assumed (he likeness of
M Bob it wlll remain for us only to
seek M Boh himself, lu which cuse,
madame, I shall be your obedient

TWO CLEVER WOMEN.
When   Members  of   British   Commons
Havi   Fought.
Vigorous hand-to-hand struggles ar..'
uncommon at St, Stephen's, but they
ar. not by auy means unknown. Ad
u matter of (act. tights hav* taken
place at the Hou.*n* ol Commons ever
sauv the time of Cromwell, when his
soldiers had to clear the House at th*
point oi the bayonet to prevent bloodshed  and   wholesale uest ruction.
Perhaps the most remarkable scene
of this description within modern
time? happened ou July B7th, 1893,
Mr. Chamberlain was speaking
against the law Mr. Gladstone, snd
at ten o'clock, when the closure fell.
Someone shouted out "Judas." and
this very unparliamentary epithet
waa reported to the chairman, who,
however, declared that the offensive
expression had not been heard by
him. He ordered the division to he
proceeded with, whereupon several
members of tiie Tory party refused to
I*-ave tiieir seat;*. A few seconds later
war was declared by a Conservative
seizing an Irish member by the coat-
collar, and within a short tim*3 there
was a regular free right in the House,
in which Colonel Saunderson was
rendered hor.-. de combat alter he had
scientifically "floored" one or two ol
the "enemy." John Burns, it is said,
helped to pull the combatants asunder until the arrival of the Speaker
put nn end to the unseemly proceedings.
Col, Saunderson took part in
many disputes at Westminster. He
fell out with Mr. William Redmond
one, duy. and it looked us if the pair
would settle their differences with
blows. The Colonel, it appeared, had
commented very strongly on Irish
violence, and Mr. Redmond took each
and several of the comments as a
personal insult, suggesting that the
redoubtable colonel should meet him
in the lobby after the sitting. The
Speaker, becoming aware uf this, sent
u note to the chief of police at St.
Stephen's asking him to tuke up i
position In the lobby and prevent *i
Tight between the hon. members. The
expected, however, did not happen,
for when Mr. Redmond and the
Colonel met in the lobby they calmly
talked matters over, and finally
wished each other a cheery "Good
day."
Some years hack, when the Hous"
happened to be in committee, the
Irish mouthers refused to go into the
lobbies for division. The chairman
sent for the Speaker, and thut gentle
mau promptly "named" the offend
ers, nnd their suspension was moved
and curried, The Irishmen refused
to budge an inch until a bodv ol
police walked Into the House. Even
then it waa as much as the constable},
could do to "move thern on." As a
mutter of fact, the police and the
Irish members had a regular fight
before the iortner conquered and car-
ried the latter bodily out of the
House.
During the debute on emancipation
in the Commons, Mr. Brougham, afterwards Lord Brougham, turned
towards Mr. George Canning and
bitterly exclaimed. "You have ex
bibited the most incredible specimen
of monstrous truckling for the pur
pose of obtaining office that the
whole history of political lerglversa
tlon could furnish." Cunning replied,
very quietly, "It is a lie!" A deathly
quiet retgnQd in the House bjr som-
minutes, ant] one could have heard it
pin drop. Presently, however, a Hv-
ly debate took place b(&K£6n the
members present, some of wnotn advised Mr. Brougham to withdraw hi-
remark and apol.tme, wtflle others
requested Mr. Cunning to dn tie
same, finally it was suggested that
the couple should be committed t<
tlie Kerireant-at-Arms. The noes'ity
for this gentleman's Intervention
happily did not arise, for the two
disputants settled thfl matter between
themselves and peace wus once more
restored. _

Her marked ability, handsome face
and llgute and general personal magnetism lit her admirably for a earvr
ou the professional stage, and she has
already been the recipient ol several
enticing oilers, Whether or not this
gdied young woman will devote her
tai.'tits to the stage, is undecided,
bul there is a rumor to the eifccl
that a certain prominent producer ot
musical comedy muy secure her ser

young set iu Winnipeg, thut even the
glamor of the .-tage muy not win her
from her friends aud admirers of the

Mrs. V. P. Walker, stage directress
of the \\ inui|h g Amateur Operatic

Miss Kva Denault, night operator io
the Bell Telephone Company's office,
showed a strain of pluck similar to
that of the engineer who sticks ta his

Miss Renault was wakened by the
dames, aud although the room she was
in was full oi smoke she didn't lose
her head; she gave the alarm before
trying to save herself.
Miss Denault's own account of her
experience, as given to a reporter ot
The Ottawa Journal, is interesting.
"I was sleeping ou the bed that is

very busy at night," she said. "The
fire must have been burning for quite
a time in the upper story, but 1 was
awakened at last by the bursting iu
of the window panes caused by the
heat outside, i jumped up and found
the room full of r-uiuke. It was almost impossible to breathe, but i managed to get across the room to the telephone. 1 called up the Town Hall and

DESERTED FARMS IN
THE  EASTERN STATES
How  the  Trusts    Have    Seized the
Greet "Market of Ninety
Millions."
Mr. C. L. Sibley, ol Montreal, who
has recently returned from a tour
of the Eastern States where he wrote
a series of articles for the Montreal
Star on "Deserted Farms in the
United States," says in referring to
Reciprocity :—
Do the Canadian farmers imagine
that they can invada tlie markets ol
the United States and succeed where
so many American farmers fail? If
so, let them make a survey of farming conditions east of tlie Mississippi
in the United Slakes. If there were
any virtue iu this cry of free access
to a market at ninety millions of people, or it the United States had even
begun to. have reached Its limit of
production, surely these farmers
would at least have begun to feet
the benefit of it. Kxuctly the reverse
is the case.
The United States census reports of
the 20-year period from 1880 to 1000
show that in that time no fewer thun
15,144 farms in New Kngland went
out of existence. Hint there were
17,000 less farmers in these Stales
at the end ol the period than at the
beginning, and tlmt some S.000.000
acres of lankl that were in cultivation
in 1880 weut out of tillage and cultivation.
And thanks to the trusts the profit, nf the fanners in the great markets now to he placed open to Ihe
people of Canada are ao hiiiiiII that
the decliiac ol funning lu New Kngland is sdll progressing despite free
ncmis lu the market of ninety millions of people. Lust your—the yenr
of their census—thore were in New
Kngland 187,418 fnrins, which is 'i'.i
less per cent, than the numher ut
tlte census ol 1000. The total acre,
age of these farms in 1910 was 10.-
174,000 ueres, nnd in the acreage
there had been in tlie lust ten years
a dwrense of 4.1 per cent. Of this
total acreage not quite one-half, or
to be exact, 7,942,000 acres, was improved land.
Here are some of the prices nf
farms actuully on offer ut this moment iu the New Kngland States:
In the town (or, ns we call it, Uie
township) of Retliel, Windsor County, Vermont, a farm of 46 acres,
$700; another ot 00 acres, $1,300;
another of .'W0 ncres, $2,000. In the
township of Brattlehoro, VL, ISO
acrea, $1,000; 100 acres, $800; at
Chester Depot, Ilut'iind County, 105
acres, $2,000; another of 280 ncres
fur $2,900; annther of 260 ncres for
$1,0(10; another nf 22t> acres for $1,.100
und another of l.'lll acres for $2,1X10.
What, then, is the matterf The
trouble in that thin market into
which the Ciinniliun fanner is to hn
invited to try his luck, la in no need
nf Cauadiau produce. The trouble is
that the United States, with its great
range of territory nnd its climate,
produces a vast surplus of all kinds
nt agricultural products, and these
products are ninnipiiluteil by the food
distributing tiusts Ui the disadvantage of many nf the producers. Go
up nnd down this country in which
tbu New Kngland farmers ought to
lind n profitable market, nnd what
do you lind? You find the cold storage plants of thn Chicago packing
houses und of the. fruit and dnlry
trusts diking the toll thnt the form-
era ought to get from the breakfast
and dinner tnblea, of the great army
of consumers.

Sitt;-.- creek occurs auiue twelve milts
trom the mouth of the creek, and
about a unit' above where tbe stream
leaver ttie mountains and enters the
tlat tlenression of the Flathead valley. The rocks of the district were
certainly not oil-producing, and so
guve no indication as to the probable
locality of the seepage, and oil was
only located Ity the odor. The spring
Ib located In the brush, about a quarter uf a mile from the trail, and ut
I tlie base of the mountain to the
! north of tbe vnlley, and near a small
lake and marsh, which lie at an ele-
I elevation of some 200 feet abov? the
stream, and some 4,400 feet above
]the sea. The ground to the north of
I this lake 'is marshy, ami full uf
springs of water which go to form
! the hike. About 100 yards from the
[base o! thr mountains, mi a knull
! higher than its Immediate Burround*
■ IngB, there is issuing a good sized
spring of water, and beside this
spring were found several pools covered with thick, dark green oil. This
Oil, tioiiit,' lighter than the water ac
cumulated nearest the highest p.nut,
the water flowing ull below. The oil
bas accumulated here in several pools
which cover an area ol B0 feet in diameter, but, as far as could be deter
mined, actually raise within a rail- j
lus of t> or S feet, the remaining j
pools being formed by overflows. As j
the oil Bpreads itself out ovet' the j
water, all these pools have the ap- !
pearance ol being entirely oil, but au .
attempt to skim it ofl soon revealed | P**
the tact that It could not be collected :>> this means, but only by lay-
og a cloth on the top of the pool,
and allowing it to sunk up the sur-
face oil and wator, the cloth being
then wrung out into a tin, from

earance it Ls lighter than the crude

anticlinal) it would thus retain   the
oil.
Aa to whether oil in quantity exists
under thiB inverted basin of rock,
there is little data upon which to
base an opinion. Oil has been found
however, over a considerable area of
couutry, as It exceeds at the two
creeks mentioned and to the south
east some twelve milei-., more or less,
at Kintha Lake, in Montana, while
on the same strike it bas been found
in small quantities. In Montana,
boring haa been done to a considerable extent, it is reported to depths
ol 1,200 feet without finding oil.
Whether there is oil in quantity to
be obtained by boring, there is little
evidence; the seepage at present is
trifling, but the geological structure
eeems suitable for the retention ol oil
it produced In quantity. H it does
so exist it must in all probability be
at a considerable depth possibly over
3,000 feet.
tn conclusion, we would say, that
there is seeping ol oil in three or
more places, that the existence ,»f oil
under ground is quite possible,
though problematic; that if such
body of oil does OCCUI it can only he
demonstrated by boring Ln all pro
liability to a considerable depth and
at high cost.

week of August 1903. Conversations
had subsequently with prospectors of
undoubted reliability, would indicate
that the amount of oil issuing varies
| with the season, and with different
[seasons, probably being influenced by
water seeming to bring the oil with
| it. As far as could be noted, there
I are no warm Bprings in the district,
all being very cold, and very clear,
having no mineral taste or smell.
The oil rises with the water, as already said, on a knoll. It is not a
question of seepage out of any surface
material, but of a spring coming up
from the foundation underlying the
surface deposit and carrying oil. The
immediate locality is surrounded on
the surface by gravel wash, and il
lateral flow existed it should he to
the lowest level, which is at the
creek bed.
The place at which the oil is found
ts at tbe top of an anticlinal in the
formation, that is to aay, at the
highest point in the bedding of the
rocks, the axis of the anticlinal
crossing the creek in a north western
direction. From this point the beds
di)) up the creek to the north east,
for about three miles, at tirst at a
very flat angle, but gradually increasing until the dip reaches about
35 degrees. At this point a fault occurs with, to the east, a different dip
to the rocks, while further up the
creek this is followed by other faults,
hence it may he said that three miles
above the "spring" is the limit in
that direction of this possible field
of accumulation.
To the south west, that ia, towards
the valley of the Flathead, the bedB
dip at a very flat angle, probably
not exceeding 10 degrees, and apparently flattening out aa they arc
lost to right under the gravel and
surface wash of the Flathead depression. In this depression no signs of
solid formation can be seen, with the
exception possibly, of two or throe
places In the bottom of the rtver
(and these being covered with water
could nnt be examined) where there
teams to be a bed of yellowish clay
■bate lying flat and which appears to
bo "In place" as n primary deposit.
On Kis|i-t>-nnh-tm creek, at a point
where oil is reported, a similar anti-
clinal fold occurs, but with the axis
running nearly north east and south
wast, or with the course of the creek
the bed dipping nil at an angle to tbe
nortli west and south east into the
adjoining mountains.
Iu neither of these nutiulinals ia
(here nny evidence of a break, nnd
H is quite possible that below the
faults referred to the overlying bedB
are unbroken and Continuous to the
south west over the whole area of
the Flathead depression, for u dis-
tance ol 10 or i'i Inches north of the
International boundary line.
Tho two springs described are evidently fit, thc ridge nf the Anticlinal
fold nud uie undoubtedly from the
same 'uea uf accumulation) the one
resulting from n fractional distila
tlon "lily. If the oil should have
been generated, as Dr, OriWHon mig-
gests "In consequence of heat at
considerable depth in the earth's
rinnt. acting upon the fixed hydro*
carbon con tai nod in the rocks of that
BQrlos"      (cretaceous
be made first, then attend to the
conservation of the moisture. The
plow should be followed closely by
the packer, for the reason that it
packs firmly the soil lying at the
bottom of the furrow slice. This soil
being in fine condition, there are
Blight chances of any open space being left to cause defects in the capillary movement. The idea is not to
have any air spaces in the seed bed,
which the capillary cannot span. Tbe
harrow should follow right after the
packer to make the mulch which,
while dry itself, acta as a blanket to
prevent the evaporation of the moisture conserved in the soil below.
This method, to my mind, puts the
soil in the best condition to carry
the largest possible quantity of
water, because with finer soil particles it stands to ' reason that the
earth will hold more water, providing there is a fair quantity of humus. Objections are sometimes raised
to frequent harrowing of the bare
fallow, for the reason that it breaks
up the surface ao fine that the surface soil is blown about by the wind.
Harrowing when the surface is moist
however, or immediately after a rain
leaves lumps of earth from the size
of peas to hens eggs. In this condition will stop the Boil from blowing
and help to save the run off.
Manure can well be applied to summer fallow in the spring, and worked
into the top three inches with a disc
harrow. This wlll give the weeds a
chance to germinate before the
ground is plowed. The manure solution, besides adding fertility, tends
to retard the evaporation constantly
process through the stems and
leaves of the plants. Kxpcrlments
conducted at the famous Rotham-
stead farm in England with pure
rain water and water taken from the
River Thames, containing n considerable amount of vegetable matter,
showed n much higher percentage of
evaporation of rain water than of
Thames water. /
It hns been proved fully that it
pays to harrow growing grain after
a rainfall until the grain attains a
height of six to eight Inches. This
maintains the mulch and destroys
the small weeds. For harrowing
growing grain a hot day is preferable. Thc harrowing should be cross
wise with the drilling. The process
if harrowing growing grain In the
spring warms the top soil, checks
evaporation and gives an increased
yield of from three to five bushels per
acre.
CRANBROOK PROSPECTS
In Hritish Columbia the coming
mining district seems to be that portion of South Kast Kootenny tributary to the City of Craubrook.
The immense bodies of high aud
low grade ore ensures great industrial development as soon as trans*
portation can be furnished by the
Kootenay Central railway, now under
construction.
Lu every direction from the City of
Oranbrook are promising mining
camps, each capable of supporting
thousands ot operators. The nearness
of the great coal Holds of the Crow's
Nest Pass is o, great advantage, and
there can bo little doubt but that
railway competition will be secured
iu tbe near future by connections with
the Canadian Northern, Great Northern as well  as tbc Cauiulinii I'acilic
three transcontinental railways.
The oldest town m the district is
Port Steole, ones tho capital of tho
Kuntt'iiays, which in beautifully located on the Kootenay river. The
largest ami moat prosperous city in
tbis district is Oranbrook, it is lo
luted iii the centre ,>f a vast lumber
ni);, mining, ami agricultural dis
trict. It is built on hlgb land, tlu
scenery being magnificent aud tin
climate unsurpassed
in tlie vicinity of Oranbrook an
many large ranches,   where   fruit of
every description, as well as the tin
est of vegetables und grain nre raised. The two largest silver-lead mines
In Canada arc located in the Cran
brook distiict, and close to the city
uie many promising mineral proper
ties showing deposits of lead, silver
copper ami gold. On the slopes of
the I'urcoll range of mountains, in
the St. Mnry's river district, a distance of twenty miles, copper and
silver-lead properties, as well 'as
placer mines, are being developed on
almost every river, creek, or stream
that flows from thu mountains.'
To the north, in the Upper Columbia valley, nre lound mnny promising properties in various stages of
development, which have large bodies
of silver.lead ore, and which, with
adequate transportation would become large and constant shippers in
the Kootenay valley, to the east,
there are many properties. In fact
we might say that this great area
is full of the precious mineral of nature, only awaiting conditions favorable for its development, the completion ol the Kootenay Central railway.
This whole area is tributary to the
City of Cranbrook, which is the
natural supply and nistrlbuting
point.
In conclusion we shall only Bay
"keep your eyes on the metropolis of
the vast lumbering, mining and agricultural centre, Cranbrook.

found all the elements required to
constitute a rich and progressive district, consisting of rich agricultural
soil, m&gnltlcent herbage for cattle,
sheep and horses, a salubrious climate, favorable to health aud fruit
growing, together with boundless
forests of timber. Throughout the
valley are scattered ranches and
farms, and during tho past year considerable attention has been glvon to
the cultivation of cereals.
The nutritious graeBes ol the foothills on both sides of the valley afford ample food supply for horses,

PUBLIC NOTICE is hereby given,
tbat, under the authority contained
In section 131 of the "Land Act," a
regulation was approved by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council axing the
minimum sale prices of first and second-class lands at $10 and (6 per
acre respectively.
This regulation further provided
tbat the prices fixed therein should
apply to all lands with respect to
which the application to purchase
were given favorable consideration
after the date of said regulation,
namely April 3rd, 1911.
Further notice is now given that by
virtue of a regulation approved by
the Lieutenant-Governor ln Council
on the 10th of May, 1911, that the regulation date the 3rd April, 1911, be
held not to apply to applications to
purchase vacant Crown lands which
were received by the Assistant Commissioners of Lands on or before the
•aid April 3rd, 1911, and wtth respect
to which the required deposit of fifty
cents per acre had been received by

There is no reason why any farmer's wife (who usually does tbe
growing of plants, it any i should not
grow her own plants both for the
flower and vegetable gardens. The
equipment required ia small and 'easily made by anyone who can handle
a hatchet and Haw as most farmers
can. There is no question but what
tbe average farm-garden is not what
it could be, were more attention l aid
to the proper growing of plants on
the farm.
The old tomato-can is not the proper thing in which to grow your
plants, especially not tbe place in
which to sow the seeds. Any one can
make a lint for this purpose, and nothing can bo better. A fiat is a
wooden box, and, when especially
mado, Is of tbe lollowing dimensions:
Twenty-four inches long, twelve in-
ohea wide, and two and a half Inches
deep. But these dimensions, excepting the depth are not empiric. You
may take a canned goods box and
saw It oil two and a half Inches from
the bottom, and you will have a
flat which will do as woll. Or, you
can make a long, narrow one, which
will ht on an ordinary window ledge
by sawing oil a box ln which window shades are received by the dealer
two and a half Inches from the bottom. Such a flat is especially good
for tho farm home, where the boxes
have to he set In the windows from
lack of a hot-bed or cold-frame. Do
not plant seeds in pans, cans, pota
or similar receptacles which are more
than three Inches deep.
Evory larm which makes a specialty of a borne ar truck garden ahould
of course, have a hot-bed or cold-
frame, or both, and even a small
| greenhouse will more than pay for
| itself, where there are many   plants
  jUoed or a market for their sale. But

instead ol expecting a change of

His own image and likeness, Adam in
ids original purity being a sample.
As the Old Te.-ta nl tells nothing
aboul a heavenly condition, likewise
it tells nothing annul a hell ul lire or
torment. Sueh devilish theories were
invented hy the heathen, Irom whom
many Christians have since absorbed
more or less of the false doctrines.
The Law and  Uu-  Prophets do reler
to hell so  sixty six times, hut the
hell which they teach is the grave,
the tomb, tue state ol death. Krniii

and bud, go to hell, sheol, the tumh.
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and ull
tnc I'ruphi'ls died without giving the
slightest Intimation ul Purgatorial
suffering lur anybody, or u hell of
eternal torture.
The writers of the New Testament
were also Jews, and it might here he
noted that nowhere did they describe
the Hell and Purgatory which wu
Protestants and Catholics conjured up
during the Dark Ages. The New Testament, written In Greek, is iu lull
accord with the Old Testament, written in Hebrew- the sheol ol the hitter is Uie hades of Uu- lormer. Unfortunately uur transiaturs have, ill lho
English Uible, mixed things up iu a
terrible fashion, giving us hell and pit
and grave as synonymous interpretations ol sheol and hades. "Orthodoxy" made hell liery and thus our
eyes ol understanding have been
darkened through the machinations of
our great Adversary, "tlie Prince ol
darkness,"
But all this demoniacal misrepresentation ol tlie Divine character und
Plan is soon to he scattered. The
morning is at bund; the Prince of
light. Uie Saviour, Messiah and His
glorious Church, will soon shine forth
as the Sun in Uie Kingdom ol the
Father, while Satan wili he bound fur
that thousand years thai he may de
ccive the people nu more. "Then all
lhe blind eyes shall be opened and all
tiie ileal ears shall be unstopped";
ond "lhe knowledge ui the glory ui the
Lord shall till lhe whole earth"; and
"to Jesus every knee shall bow and
every tongue coulees, to lhe glory ol
Ood."
AH through th» Scriptures natural
sleep IS used as a tigure iur death, as
tiie present time uf the reign ot sill
is represented as a night lime, and
the coming reign ol Messiah is prophetically described as tiie morning ul
a New Day, a New Kpoch. "Weeping

Tlie Prophet David declared his
faith in a resurrection ut the dead
when he wrote, "Thou wilt not leave
.tiy soul iu hell (sheol, Uie grave), uur
suffer Thine Holy One to aee corruption (Psalm xvi, 10). St. Peter (Acts
ti, S5-31) calls our attention to the
lact tUat the Prophet David did see
corruption, and heuce that this state-
meut was not in regard to himself
but Jesus*—that tlie soul of Jesus
■\a* not left in sheol (Ureek, hades);
and, additionally, the tiesh ol Jesus
was not allowed to corrupt,

derstand that the hell to which Jesu**
went was not Purgatory uor a place
ot eternal suffering, but the gl ive,

This   is   proved   to    be   the    Apostle's
thought  by  the   words,  "God   raised

As these animals have nature: distinct
and ale adapted to the conditions
which God nas provided, so the nature of man, even when brouglit
man perfection, will enjoy and appreciate more the earthly blessings which
Uud has provided tor hint than he
would enjoy the heavenly blessing*
which God has provided for the Elect
; "little Bock"—"the Church of tue
First-Boms" (Hebrews xii, 23).
The reason for this is plain when wc
■*» member  the   Apostle's   words.    He
declares, "Tiie natural man receiveth
not the  things of the Spirit ui God,
; neither    can    be    know    (appreciate!
. tiiem, iur they are spiritually discern*
ed"   (I.    Corinthians   ii,   14).    Only
those  who have  been  begotten of the
Holy Spirit are enabled lu understand
the deep tilings, the spiritual thing*
af the  Divine promise, and to rejoice
i therein,  as  the   Apostle explains  (1.
Corinthians ii, 9. 10).
And   even when thus  spirit-begotten
and with their affections sel on thing*)
above, the Lord's consecrated "little
flock"'  experience  ditlieulty   in   keeping ilieir affections ou  the  Heavenly
; tilings nud ofl oi thc earthly things,
because   the   latter   appeal   to   them
: continually through all of their earth*
I ly senses.  They are therefore exhorted
1 to 'look  not  at the  things that are
suen, but at ihe things tnat are un*
i Been," which "eye hath not seen nor
j ear heard, neither have entered into
i the   heart   of   man   the  great  thing-)
I which   God   has   in   reservation   for
! those that love Him"- love llun more
: than they love houses ur lauds, par-
: cuts ur children, ur self.
;    We can plainly Bee, then, that with-
| uut this begetting of thc Holy Spirit,
; which bcloiTgs, of course, to the serv-
j ants and handmaidens uf God during
this Gospel Age, none nre able to ap-
! preoiate the things unseen.  And hence I
j the   world   nf    mankind    iu  general, !
j brought  back   to  perfection—and  all I

i perfection—will be willing not to sac* I

ker'a yacht, which bud been awaiting
them, and set suil before the people ol
Jerusalem learned what they had
done.
According to the story now current
in Jerusalem the inception of the ex
pedilion occurred more than two years
rgo when a Swedish Biblical scholar
and Orientalist in pursuing his studies
ut tlie library uf St. Suiiu, Constantinople, respecting the early history ot
the Jews, discovered a cipher giving
a clew to the exact whereabouts of
the sacred objects uf the Jews, whu
buried them to save Dhetn from the
Romans at the sack u( Jerusalem.
These were the Ark of the Covenant,
the seven-branched candlestick, the
censor, and also the greatest uf all,
the tables of the law.
The Swede's cipher with its key was
submitted for investigation to Oriental
Judaic experts whu declared it apparently genuine. A company was thereupon funned in Kngland by Cant. Parker, a brother of the Earl of Morlcy;
Lieut. Robin Duff, oi the Second Life
GuaTds, and other persons of posi-
tton, who sent out Capt. Parker to
obtain a permit from the Sultan af
Turkey to muke excavations on the
site of tiie Temple of Solomon.
Capt.   Parker  obtained  the concession.   Then a large steam yacht was
chartered and loaded witli all appliances necessary for tlie excavations,
among other things witli an armored
tiuin in sections, to be pieced together
ut Jui'fu. The armored train wus to be
used  to carry  off tho sacred objets,
etc., us trouble was anticipated if the
1 inhabitants heard uf their discovery.
I    The excavations  were  started  with
; 200 men, the Inhabitants' suspicions
j being allayed  by  the statement that
their  object  was   to  obtain   a  water
I supply    for   Jerusalem    '.om   secret
; springs which ted the Pool of Siloum.
I    Several   times  the    workings    were
' Hooded frum the pool, but as the ex-
, c% vat ions confirmed the absolute ac-
j curacy   of   the   secret   cipher,   extra
f money   was  subscribed   to   carry  on
I the work.
j Eventually the tunnel brought them
towards the bbc rod rook in the
' Mosque of Omar, covering tlie Well
> oi Spirits where the souls of the de.
; purted are supposed to assemble perl*
| odically ior prayer. It is one of the
most holy spot to Moslems in all
I slum.
The explorers are said to have
bribed sheikhs who guard the mosque
to allow them to explore beneath the
sacred stone, and there they are al-
leged to have unearthed the objects ol
their search, witli which they left
Jerusalem secretly and suddenly.
The enterprise is purely commercial,
its promoters calculating that if they
obtained the Ark of the Covenant,
tb** tables of the law and other objects of profoundest veneration to the
Jewish race they would realize untold
millions fur them.

Ilr Walter Gilbey Hat a Reputation
In the Swiss Mountains.
Sir Wilier Gilbey has celebrated his
eightieth birthday at Klseuham Hall,
bissex, Kngland, surrounded by his
lam lly, grandchildreu, and other rela-
lives and friends. Tim village was
jaily decorated with flags, peals were
rung od the church bells, and various
presentations were made ,u behalf of
the tenantry, friends, and neighbors.
Sir Walter is a livng contradiction to

which his business-like methods have
since converted into one of the most
profitable concerns ot its kind in the
kingdom.
Despilo his age, Sir Walter is still
wonderfully hale and hearty. This us-

about the guide who wus to accompany
him.
"Is he a thoroughly skilful climber.1-" he asked his hotel-keeper.
"I should say so," wus the reply.
"He has lost two parties of tourists

FITZGERALD'S NAME WILL LIVE

Northwest Mounted Pol-it Inspector
Who With Three of His Constables
Met Death In the Wilds Had a
Record For Gallantry and Close Attention to the Hard Details of His
Work.
Inspector Fitzgerald, who, with Con*
stables Kinney, Taylor and Carter,
met a tragic deatli recently while ou
a long patrol of 4U0 miles across the
northern wilds from Dawson City to
Fort MaclMieisoii, was u man of great
experience in Arctic travel. He wus s
native uf Halifax and was 01 years ol
age. Shortly alter joining the Northwest Mounted Police, about 16 yean
ago, he waa slatiom-d in thu ranch,
iug country south of Maple Creek,
Altn., but in 1897 was transferred tv
Fort Saskatchewan, at the time thf
centre of all police operations in thf
north.   After the South African war,
Mario Kept His Beard.
It was Czar Nicholas 1. whom Mario
defied on u mc. ruble occasion. The
singer was in St. Petersburg in 1853,
when he received a command from Uie
Cear to sing in a little play which
would have lasted about twenty minutes. He was to take the part of a
young officer of the time of Louis XV.,
aud Mario, who was very proud of his
mustache and short curly beard, demurred. Finally he wa*s sent for by
the Empress Marie Feodorowna, who
wus alwuys very friendly .o him. He
obeyed the command at once. The
empress greeted him the moment he
entered her bomloir with, "Dear M,
Mario, do for my sake shave and
sing in this play." "Your majesty,"
said Mario, kneeling aud kissing the
outstretched hand, "I would give you
my tiie, but my beard—impossible I"
1 inally the Czar ordered Mario either
to shave or go. Mario instantly returned hia salary and left Russia.*-

Monster Beds,
Though the beds of the royal personages of England were elaborately
carved and hung with rich curtains
even so late as the Tudor period, it
is recorded that King Henry VlII.'s
beu contain^ only straw beneath all
its finery. A curious order exists as
to precautions to be taken against
the possibility of intended mischief
to the royul person in the making of
the bed, for the usher was to search
the straw through with a dagger "that
there be none untruth therein and to
tumble over on the down bed for the
better search thereof." The bed oi
Henry VIII. was nearly eleven leet
square, and of even more generous
dimensions ia the great bed to which
Shakespeare refers in a well-known
passage in "iwelfth Night," which
was twelve feet square. This "great
bed of Ware" has been a marvel for
centuries.
Canadian   Boys'   Brides.
Recently two Canadian boys led to
the altar prominent English ladies.
The story of how Mr. Hamar Greenwood met his bride during the earthquake at Jamaica has been told, but
it is not generally known that the engagement of Mr. Claude llryan of Toronto to thc niece of Lord Furuess
grew out oi a casual acquaintance
made on board ship while crossing
the Atlantic. Ttie future Mrs. Bryan
has literary tastes and naturally Uie
two found much iu common. U was
not surprising thut the friendship lasted uud ripened.
When Mr. and Mrs. Bryan settle

Ihey will have us next door neighbor

First English Letter.
The oldest letter written in English
of which there is record wus that to
Sir John Pelhum iu London by his
wife, who waa then in Kent. That lei*
ter is dated Marcli 22, 1339, and waa
sent to London by messenger, Up to
the commencement uf the reign oi
Kdwurd I. all letters, even of the most
private nature, were written in Latin.
About tlie time uf Edward's accession
French, which hud been the spoken
language of thc court from thc time
of the conquest, begun to be used in
written correspondence. In the reign
of Edward 111. the English language,
in pursuance of un act of Parliament,
was made the language of legislation.
—London Globe.
A Merited Rebuke.
The irreproachable politeness of the
late Edward VII. of England was not
only individual and relative to persons; it was human and general as
well. Once at Mahenbud His Majesty
and a few friends were having tea in
a restaurant in the pine woods near
the town. At a table close by sat another party, the host of which was a
well-known German prince.
The work of attending to the guests
at both tables devolved upon a young
English waitress, and the King did
not tail to notice the rude, blustering
manner of the royal German, who
threatened to report tlie terrified girl
every time she had occasion to answer his summons. Annoyed by this
moat unjustifiable behavior, the King
said to Sir Stanley Clarke:
"You are to convey my thanks to
the proprietor here for the prompt and
' admirable manner in which my party
has been served at this restaurant."
The command was instantly obeyed,
much to the disgust of the adjoining
table, a disgust which was intensified
when the King gave the timid young
waitress a gold piece.
A Long Lasting Flower.
A common South African flower possesses the valuable property of keep-
| ing fresh for two mouths or more after cutting.    It ia  a  white  Star  ot
| Bethlehem.     Ornithorgalum   lactuni,
l producing a compact spike of flowers
I on a stiff, erect stalk 18 inches to two
| feet long, explains The  Field.    Tbe
| flower is ot a thin and papery tissue,
all white, except the yellow anthers.
! It can be sent over aa a cut flower
' fiom  South  Africa  to  this country,
' and then  lasts  for  weeks  in  water.
And recently we have seen a South
African flower, apparently a species of
allium, which crossed the ocean and
remained fresh for several weeks in
this country.   Many of tiie unopened
buds expanded.
Mad as a Hatter.
The phrase "mail aa a hatter" has
no reference to that respectable artist who designs the crowning article
ol civilised mule attire, but relates
back to tlie Anglo-Saxon word "utter"
(an adder, or viper). "Mad" was formerly used as a synonym for violent
or venomous and ia atilt used in that
sense in some parts of Kngland as
well as in this country. The phrase,
therefore, strictly means aa "venomous
aa a viper," the old form, "mad aa a
alter," having been corrupted to "mad
as a hatter."
