J. P. Fink, mauager of the Fort Steele
Mercantile company, makes it a point
to Issue a neat souvenir each Christmas
for his customers. List Christmas it
was a neat calendar witb a thermometer
attached. Tbey were attractive aiid in
great demand* aud naturally Jake felt
proud uf the (.election be bad made. A
few daya ago an uuoMowu customer
waa In the store and asked for two of
the calendars. They were handed over,
aud then Jake started in ou a eulogy on
the themomeler. "You will notice that
the th'-ruiometer is suiitll, and as a rule
with these small thermometers uo tests
are made, an I tbey are not accurate.
These however, are all right, and will
compare right along with Gill's government tegisier. I never saw anything
like them. I use one out of doors, one
in the bed rooms, one in the dining
room aud one in the kitchen at my
house. It ia nice, you know, to be able
to tell the eiact temperature of your
rooms in fact, it enables one to keep
their house in a healthful condition.
Why, my friend, put one of those thermometers in your hen house, aud your
eggs will never freeze or your bens get
frost bitten. You can d<-peud upon
them day and night, and .''
"Say, Jake, if these thing are all
right, what is tbe matter?"
"Mattel? what do you mean?" asked
"You say they are absolutely accurate

Mr. Watkins, one ofthe Ute additions
to the Canadian Dank of Commerce
ststV, and a recent artivat in this
country from Kttglaud, Is meeting with
many new incidents since his advent in
tbe far west. Tbe other day he entered
lhe townsite « nice, and while looking
atouud at the Indian cutios aud head*.
ofatiluisls, he saw the magnificent musk
ox head, tbat James QUI takes great
pride In showing visitors. Mr. Gill is
quite a joker himself, and being an
Kugl simian wllh western training, enjoys a joke ou his fellow countrymen.
When Watkius saw the head, he turned
and said:
Ah, Mr. Gill, tbat is a butTalo bead,
is it not?"
With a serious countenance but
twinkling e**es, Mt. Gill replied;

Some of tht boys were talking the
other day about Cbailey Vroman ns
Monte Chrislo, when George I'usbce
told of the Ilrsl time be went home after
living out west.
"1 hail saved my coin," said George,
and bad a fat bunch wheu I reached
the old home. My fnther aud mother
bad lived economical Uvea to raise the

looked aa large aa tbe head of a cheese

Tbere Unothing new [nthocoal sirik.
nt the collieries of the CrOWl Nell Coal
rompany- Unlit sides seem to be siand
ing firm and tbere Is DO move toward v
settlement so far as is known. A number of lhe provincial police hsve been
called to Fernie to provide against any
possible disturbance payday, but no one
mi the ground anticipates any trouble
as the men are very quiet.
It is said that the management will
make no concessions, as they claim
that the men are receiving better pay
than any coal miners ou earth.
It Is stated that if any coal from Frank
or Lethbridge is shipped west to Gil tbe
demands heretofore met by Ibe Fernie
mines that the men iu both of those
places will go out.
There are rumors to the effect that
Manager Tonkin has been asked tore
sign, but as he has just returned from a
long conference wllh the officials of the
company at Toronto and is undoubtedly
acting under their orders tin* thete can
be nn foundation for such a report.
There is no question but tlutt the situ*
atiou is growing serious and grave fears
are entertatintd over the outcome.
Should Be Settled.
It is yet impossible to determine the
true slams of ilie strike in the absence
of complete and satisfactory statements
from lhe contending parties. Manager
Tonkin has uot yet made a complete
statement aud the union has made only
a partial one.
Reports ns to tbe Injury that is being
worked throughout eastern llritisli Columbia are coming thick nml fast, and it
looks as if business will be prostrated
I nun Michel to Grand Forks. All the
smelters will close, which means a suspension of work iu the mines of West
Kootenay and Ibe throwing of hundreds
of men ont of employment, The full extent of tbe strike is difficult to realize,
since thete are so many Hues of business dependent to 11 great extent upou
the coke supply.
What will be done is not known, but
il is necessary for some action lo lie
taken, 01 business will be paralyzed for
the coming season.
Both the men nnd thc coal cottipnny
have certain moral obligations that
should be met, Atul for this reason there
should be a willingness on the part of
both to get together so that tbe wheels
of Industry may move again. The Herald is not in a position to say which is
in the wrong, but it is positive in tbe
opinion that tbe existing condition Is
wrong nnil that some steps should be
tnken without   delay   to bring about an
adj-ialiueut of the difficulty.
Thc Strikers' Case.
Fernie, Ii. C, Feb. 11—The situation
as tt slamis today is this: The Morrlssey
mines bave beenwoiking under a protested wage scale since November ut.
The Ferine mi ties have beeu working
under n protest wage scale since the 4th
of August last, uud alihiugh the union
has on several occasions tried to obtain
a settlement they have up to date lieen
entirely, Ignored by the management.
Realizing tbat nothing could be obtain
except hy strike, this has been dune,
ami today there is not a wheel turning
ut Fernie, Morrissey or Michel.
Secretary Stale meat,
Fernie, Feb 13 —The demands being
mude by the union are a uniform scale
of wages based nil lhe snil-tj of wages
paid in the Fernie mines prior to lhe
explosion of last summer, Since Mr.
Tonkin look charge be has been making
a systematic reduction In wages Up to
the present, Mr. Tonkin has refused to
give an audience to Ihe district union
for the presentation ol their grievances,
al hough we have on several occasions
tried to obtain nn Interview for that
purpose. At Morrissey he wishes to
place a lower tonnage rate for digging
coal than is at present being paid anywhere else on the continent. Tbis we
reject. The company are running stored
at all three of lhe mines. We are waiting and willing to arrange a conference
v;ilb tbe management nt any time.

The I amber Cut.
Lumbering operation! throuhoul Canada will be large ibis year. In some
district! it is expected   to be a record
v-ar, lhe chief lear being   the   scarcity
ol lal'ineis.      Weather   COttdlllotU  thus

The season's cut in  Nova Bcatll will
be 500100,000 feet   Fifty per cent, of
tbl» !U|Olint Will be moved to the waler
lid! by rail
In the Minium bi district, the operation* nf about lifieen linns are estimated
al 117,11110 000 feet
Oa Ut territory held iu Ontario under license from lhe crown, a cut of S\\,-
(00,000 feet ol pine logs and Square
timber is expected. Ill addition (here
wil! be 1 500,000 railway ties, telegraph

The saws lite busy al BoOtb'l mill
these days, says the Hull City Advance.
Logs are now arriving Irotti tbe Mada-
waska limits by train, three or four
trains uf sixteen cars each, or thereabouts, being b 1 tul ed dally over the C.
A. railway. Hy this arrangement a constant supply of logs from tin* null is provided, whereas, by means of water
transportlon alone It would be only
possible to operate tbe mill during the
summer and full. In some instances
logs reach the saw within twenty-four
hours after the tree trunk falls free
from the stump.
A large rock excavation is being made
on the Chautliere by Boolh & Co. Fully
I 200,000 cubic feet of stone were removed. The site is being covered in and
tbe machinery will he installed this
winter. Although Mr, Booth remains
reticent regarding Ins iuieutious, it is
understood by others in a position to
know thai 11 pulp mill wilt be built. Up
on bis limits in the Tetttiskamlug country Mr. Hooth is taking out 11 huge
quantity of small spruce, evidently Intended for the pulp making industry.
Owing to the shortage of good men in
Manitoba, but few if any of those who
have made contracts with Ibe railroad
companies and others lor lies, logs and
curd wood will be able to fill I hem. A
prominent contractor said tbat something should be done at the present
juncture to get some of the staivitig
Swedes to come cut to this country.
The Swedes, he said, hnd lew equals iu
the logglug and tie camps. Next to tbe
Canadians he prefereed tbem to men ot
all other nationalities.
Iu the Revelstoke district the cut this
year will be little short of 100,000,000
feet, Involving a payroll of over $500,
000 a year.
Lumbering operations in Newfoundland and Labrador by a Nova Scotia
syndicate, have proved so satisfactory
that fourteen areas, amounting to 6,000
square miles, have recently been taken
up in addition to territory already held.
This area includes 1,000 miles on tbe
Labrador coast, aud the yearly rental to
be paid will amount to about $12,000

J  P. Vance Frozen lo Death
The following despatch will be read
with sorrow by the people of this district:
Winnipeg, Feb. 16—Tbe body of J.
P. Vance, travelling engineer of the C.
P K , who perished near Baltlefoit on
Friday, reached S-iskntoon today, and
will betaken to Strathcona for burial.
Vance bad left his teamster on the morning of Thursday and in the storm of the
afternoon had missed the tent, wandered about all night, and was only found
by a searching party at sunset on the
evening of Friday alongside the trail.
Ilu hud left liU cojI in the sleigh, and
thus lightly clad, had endured the worst
storm known for years, He had tried
to light a fire, hut from exnaustion, failed, and lay down where he wu found.
He was an experlened man, perfectly
at home on the prairie, and but for the
blizzard would have been all right.
Mr. Vance had charge of the construction of the Marysville spur and switches,
and was liked by all who koew him.

Inch tbe men claim is heavy enough
to justify the increase.
Nanaimo Miners Strike.
Victoria, Feb. 16—The miners of Nn-
nalmo have gone on strike. About 800
men went out today against the Western Fuel company of San Francisco,
which recently acquired tbe mines nt
Nanaimo. The miners are asking for
a general advance from March 1st of
from 75 to 80 cents a ton, ami 25 cents
per day extra for using safety lamps,
claiming that coal cannot be got under
s quickly witb the safety lights, and
they also ask Si a ton for mining In the

Joe  Martin Says The Government
Is Doomed To A
Till MP    Will.     -HP     A     HOT     SESSION
The provincial house will meet on
March 13, an order having been issued
lo lhat effect by the lieutenant governor,
Tbe Prior government claims that it has
a majority, but tbe opposition say tbat
Ihis is far from true, and lhat It will be
necessary to gn lo the countiy. The
genera) opinion throughout the province
-teems to favor the latter view and it la
predicted that an election will be held
next April.
Joe. Martin to Fl|bi.
Joseph Martin K. C, M. L. A., will
lend his swoid to the lighting brigade,
thai is now assisting ex Premier Semlin 111 West Vale. Asked by the Vancouver World to define his individual
position iu the present aspect of provtu-
rial affairs, the provincial liberal leader
hus made tbe following statement:
"1  am  unqualifiedly opposed  to Ihe
Prior government. 1 win vote againet
tbem and work against lh m. I am
issuing au address lo the West Vale
electors giving my views regarding the
present political situation iu tbe province and expressing my opinion as to
lhe attitude and strength of tbe Prior
government in the present crisis, Iu
this pamphlet I express conviction tbat
I'ltiiiiet Piior cannot possibly control
more than sixteen votes and would not
be able to induce a mnjority of those
sixteen to back him up in his promises
to the West Vale electors
"It stands to reason that if West Vale
is promised handsome concessions, other
sectoral districts must have the same
treatment, and whatever money grants
are given to West Yale must also be
given to other constituencies represent
ed by membe-s supporting lhe government, and if they did not get the same
treatment they would not remain loyal
to the government; while if tbey were
given the fame treatment the electors at
large would have something to say regarding Ihe reckless depletion of tbe
treasury for political ends, lhat certain
constituencies might be benefitted at
the expense of the whole province.
"This pamphlet is issued in tbe interest of Mr. Semlin, whom I certainly
expect to be elected. I bave canvassed
the members of the house and am absolutely convinced in my own mind that
the I'i ior government is doomed."
Cranbrook Inflicted  With   a   Peak   Cea*
There Is hardly a civilized being In
the world who has not read the book
or witnessed Ihe play of Uncle Tom's
Cabin. Last Monday a combination
known ns the Wilsons came In on a
freight train to present tbe play. Tbe
members had talent la the nerve Hue,
nd some of tbem could talk so faal
their intellect invariably got tbe
worst of it In the race. Tbe hall wa!
crowded as ll never had been before,
and those present were treated to such
a burlesque of the popular play ai haB
never been seen in this country.     The
liaracter delineations were crude and
coarse, and aside from a wee tot wbo
hail not associated long enough with
tbe rest uf the aggregation to become
rank.   There were   none who possessed

idoriferous. pungent odor to high
heaven. The second night Ten Nights

Where filth and coarseness predominated
the caste merited praise for Ihe realistic
manner   in  which  they   presented  the
mportatit parts.

of Cranbrook money, and paying rent

When Colonel Twlller appeared at
the dour of ins opart men ti in the Nagasaki hotel, be saw thai Nellie was
standing al the window looking out
ovor the crowded harbor uud drum*
mini' impatiently upon tbe uIiim with
ber fingers, Now. the colonel hmi uot
been ibe guardian and hole mentor of
thm young lady since ber tenth year
without learning the slgtiB of the times,

better permitted to work Itself off
through ilu* ftllgcra than through the
lips. So be siuli' lu ns riot'ily aa the
Stiffness of bis cork leg would permit
nml seated himself lu a low huuihuo
rocker to await the turn of events.
Tbu colonel's oilier leg bud been left
at Gettysburg, and when be wus well
enough to ao home Nellie's mother,
who bud refused bim whole before he
enlisted, married ibe remaining three*
fourths of him nnd Beomed glad tu get
the chance. The colonel was glad also,
and iv I) en Nellie wus born he wus still
more glad. Ills happiness continued
about ten years, uutl then the death of
his wife robbed him of It until tbe
building of his daughter into wuumu-
houd, un exact counterpart lu form,
feature uiul dlKpo-iillou uf the lust
wife, restored it to him. Ho bad become uu abject slave of diis impulsive,
changeable, petulant, warm hearted
copy of his wife, mid tbat was tbe
only reason why he wus now 8.U00
miles away from his na live laud.
Nellie hail said site absolutely must
go over to Jnpuu to sea those cunning
Japanese girla In their own homes; and
the colonel hud Bald, "Ves, of course,"
though he very well knew that she
cared no more for tho cunning Japanese girls than site did for the woiuitn
who is supposed to -keep company wltb
tbe mini In tbe moon. He knew she
simply wanted tu get ns close us possible tu Lieutenant .luck Carter, who was
fighting lu tbe lliilippliies und whom
she btitl Unity refused to marry.
Jack wus the son of the colonel's old
chum, who had been so badly wounded
at the time the colonel lost bis leg that
ho only hnd lasted through a few yean
of suffering und then had left his little
curly headed boy itn orphan In the cure
of his comrade iu iiiius. The twu children bad grown up together and loved
sneb oilier, but Nellie lnul some romantic notion flboul heroes, such as her father wllh his cork leg, which Jnck did
nut sin-in to Illl. Ilu was only .lack. So
she refused liliu without knowing liuw
much It hurt her, mid be, when the war
broke out, enlisted, Hill without knowing how much it hurt her.
Her pride ut tbe thought thut perhaps Juek would become a heru after
all wus mingled with u fear thut the
price of tbe heroism might be mure than
a mere cork leg, mid this Idea the colonel ntluiuluieil upon every oucaslon that
Offered. As time went un news from
the I'billjjpiues became mure startling,
and lhat In why she told her lather she
wanted to sen ttlOSD cunning llttlu Jap-
ansae girls iu tbelr own homes uud selected Nagasaki, thu nunrest port to
Manila, but tbe poorest for seeing Japanese life, us her point uf observation.
As Nellie stood at the window drumming she SOW the sampans darling

still moro impatiently and remarked
"They make me tired!"
"Who?" queried the colonel from tbe
depths of his chair,
"Why, those ofllcori with their nice,
clean uniforms! What right have these
officers tu COIPO uwuy from Manila
when Jack Is over there lighting thuso
horrid savages 1 1 should think they'd
bu ashamed to du It."
"Perhaps tboy would if thoy knew
Juek wus thero all aloiio."
"Now, popslo, you slop making fun!
You know they have no right to cuius

"Very well, my deer," said lhe colonel, rising, "but I want to cull your attention tu the raid Unit a young officer
wbo Is sick ull thc tliuu could not be
fighting savages night uud day. Vou'd
better decide upon one thing or the
other ns the rcusou why be ought to be

as hs stumped down the hull nnd the
liiya-l flight of stairs to the hotel entrance.
The colonel had a very dignified, •/« Hilary cnrrlage, the dignity being accentuated by his desire to conceal the
presence of the cork leg, and wltsu bu
made his stately tippcitruuce on tha
hotel steps there was a rush of rickshaw

stiffly mounted. Int.. the seut and was
soon trotted tu tbe door of the Knglisb

Upon Invitation he jolued them, but

orderly hud been killed and the major
wuiunl.-ft by the volley. The udjutuut,
who bud curried bla wounded commander buck to shelter under a hull of
bullets, wus su severely wounded thut
he wus expected tu die. The uuuie of
tbls gulluut hero wus Lieutenant Carter. Heru wus .Wllie's hero at laat, but,
alas, not with a mere cork leg, but
probably by this time sleeping beneutb
the silent stars oil Battery knoll.
The colonel hung bis bead In sorrow.
How should he tell the news to thut little girl whose very heart be knew
would break, all the more surely because of remorse for bavlug sent Jack
tu bis duath without knowledge of tbe
love fur which hs bad craved aud
pleaded 1
Slowly he passed out of tbe club, entered bis rickshaw and waa soou at tbs
hotel. Ue stumped stiffly along tbe
ball to the parlor where Nellie was
wslting. She turned from the window
as be entered, aud a glance showed ber
tbat something was wrong. Wltb a
rush she wus at bis side.
"What Is it, father?" she asked excitedly.
"Jack," was all be could answer as
be sunk into a chair and covered his
face with his hands,
"What, father? What about Jack?"
She sunk ou her kneea at his side and
with a ilrin grasp took bla bunds away
from bis face.
"A flag of truce! Jack and bis major
went out! Fired upon by those monsters. Major wounded! Jack carried
him to safety, but was mortally wounded himself Id doing lt,"
For an Instaut she remained kneeling
as though stunned by tbe news, and
then she spraug into action, Jumping
to ber feet, she almost lifted bim out of
the chair and dragged bim toward tbe
duor, exclaiming incoherently:
"Come, come quick I We must go to

"That's a go! I rei.'kun there's a minister of some kind to be found lu Nagasaki," said a voice in tbe doorway.
Nellie looked up at the figure standing there dud ln khaki; then, With a
cry of "Jack!" she rushed forward aud
threw her arms urouud bis neck. As
for Juek, he elusped ber lu his arms
and danced around the room witb her,
while the colonel, excited beyond recollection of bis dignity, stumped about
the room like tbelr shudow. Finally
Jack stopped to catch a breath* sud as
his grasp relaxed somewhat -Nellie released herself, suylug:
"Jack Carter, you're a fraud. Vou've
never even beeu wounded."
"Never said f was," be answered sen*
"Then wbo was thut Lieutenant Carter who waa wounded under a flag of

We'll mingle our teurs." And bo picked
her up und took souther spin around
the room.
Ths colonel stumped around after
tbem again till be came to tbe window.
Then be stopped snd looked out. He
did uot even turn around when Jack
paused out of breath a few minutes
later and shouted, "Hay, colonel, it
pays to he shut, doesn't It?" He simply
continued to look out tbs window and
laughed softly.
A Meiias* from the Palplt,

Just how much It would take fur baby'a

because she seemed to read aright the
mysterious Instructions intrusted to
them by busy wives at home. There
whs no complaint about tbe calicoes
and glnphuiiiB matched st Wilson's
store, and Jennie always threw ln a
stick of cuudy for the littlest oue, to
eay nothing of smiles sud friendly
And, the strangest of all, she did not
spill sugar nor drop the cracker box

ns her employer's competitor hud foretold. In fact, she fitted Into the ufche

Frank saw tit to raise her salary.
At this last piece of good fortune she
bought an organ ou the Installment
plan, aud tbe wee front room at ber
aunt's home wus thereby transformed
luto a veritable paradise.
Knter then the proverbial serpent lu
tbe form of a demonstrator whose mission was to teach stolid wives of furui-
erB the gentle art of warming up
canned buked beans. She wore a
striped silk waist, very long arid very
pointed lu the front, very high ns to
collar and very tight as to sleeve—she
hud a pretty unu-and her silk lined
skirt gracefully swept up tbe sawdust
on Fruuk Wilson's floor.
The demonstrator tlrst patronized aud
then really liked Jennie. _Sbe told the
winsome little clerk thut ber euergy
and talent were wasted in such a narrow sphere. She really ought to be In
the city, where ber ability would command a good suliiry and where she
might in time rise to be bead of a department* Jennie was not quite sure
what tbo latter elevution Implied, but
she was properly diuzled by tbe fair
words of biT new found acquaintance,
and when the latter suggested tbat abe
hud a friend wbo had tbe necessary
Influence to secure a position for "any
one," particularly any one she might
recommend, Jennie was duly grateful.
So wheu a mouth later she received a
few Hues written in a sprawling attempt at English angular penmanship
announcing thut un opening awaited
her lu the great city Jennie waa wildly
excited. So great wus ber excitement
thut she did not notice ths expression
on Frank's face Wheu she offered her
resignation and told bim the good
news. Yet he went with ber to tbe
train, saw ber comfortably fixed for
the day's Journey snd tried not to look
wistfully Into tbe sweet face, fairly
shining now wltb happy anticipations
Then be weut back to the store, the
new clerk and a realisation that It was
not the girl's sales, but ber gentle personality, which bad roused bis interest
—and sumetblHK more.
The demonstrator, clad In a new tailor mude stilt aud a sl|k waist even
more gorgeous than the oue which bud
dazzled Jennie aud Uruftuu In geuerul,
met ber at tbe depot and piloted ber to
the boarding bouse where she had, witb
gll good intentions, selected a Uny hull
room "with running water, dear, and
yuu iiu.i'i uftuu get that In a bull room."
"I'll be muumi lu tbe imu-uiug, uiy
dear, and take yuu to tbs store. My
friend Will be expecting you, of course,
but my being wllh yuu will make it

Lonesome? Ob, na. Jennie was not
lonesome. She wss simply sick from
the tip of her new tun shoes to tbe
crowu of her new sailor but with a
strange, vague Illness which Is not defined III medical publications. She wu»
glad when the well moaning but chattering demonstrator took herself off.
The next day found her Installed In a
bargain square or tbe big department

head swim, tbe rude, captious bargain
seekers terrified her, the thick air stilled ber and tbe cold, wary glance of
tbe floorwalker, always suspicious of

friendly If unspoken approval of ber

Sometimes she cilllght herself wondering what was going on in Frank's

pulled upon Jennie, uml when lhe voluble demonstrator took tier departure
Jennie turned to tier mupiziucs, papers and home letters wllh u feeling
of relief.
Then came her promotion at lhe
store and with It a friendship worth
having u friendship which represented rescue from the desolation ui a bail
bedroom aud the horrors uf cheap
boarding bouse rule. For the tilo of
girls took furnished rooms ami cooked
those things whteh were ut least w hole*
some and or guud quality if not elaborately prepared. Her salesbook each
duy showed a steady iidvauev. Placed

being head ot u department loomed up
before her, and yet—
•        ••>••••
Tbey bad beeu to a fashionable theater. They bud wurn their "very best,"
these three busy women, uud had treat-
ed themselves to seats In the front row
of tbe balcony. Between the acta from
this point of vantage Jennie bad leaned
over to watch tbe gay assembluge.
When sbe reucbed her room, sbe
turned tbe gus uu full heud, uud, tilting
her mirror, she studied her face. It
was uot au unpleusuut tusk. Indeed
tbe floorwalker in her department had
remarked to one of his friends that the
little country girl was "devilish pretty,
by Jove." She shuddered us she recalled his words uud his foppish appearance, even to tbe plated fob which
swung fttoui bis silk embroidered vest.
Then, strangely enough, her thoughts
went buck to Fruuk Wilson, with his
strong, resolute face, his square, deter*
miued shoulders, his keen blue eyes,
which could be wonderfully frleudly
without a gleam of impertinence Iu
tbelr clear deptlis. She brushed her bnir
vigorously as sbe berated herself thus:
"Jennie Holmes, you're a goose. Von
thought thut wheu you came to town
you'd actually be u part of the life of

Then abe thought of Thanksgiving
duy, ouly two weeks ott, and her aunt's
little front ruom with the organ, never
opened now, and—the store. Oh, dear,
the ribbuii boxes must be In u shocking
mess by this time! Aud she cried* herself to sleep.
Tbe next morning she wus late at,the
store fur ths Hrst time. Tbe girls left
her writing. It wus s meek little letter telling Fruuk thut she did uot like
ber work and asking very prettily for
bar old position if ths opening could be
Ths reply came by wlret
Position open.   Will txpect you Monday.
Ths trio In ths furnished rooms resolved Itself luto a duet. Tbe other
girls were sorry to lose their bright
faced companion and secretly envied
ber the beatific expression with which
sbe mads ber preparations for departure. Tbey received one postal curd un-

Then ensued a long silence.

Th* Shepherd's 1'nree.
A valuable little plant thut goes to
waste by roadsides and vacant lots Is
the shepherd's purse, whose tiny seed
pods are known by everybody nt Right,
though not by name. The green needs
stripped from the stems and strewn
over lettuce or endive ure a piquant
addition to salnds of which no epicure
will need to taste twice to be assured.
Tbe fresh peppery taste suggested In
one of Its names, "wayside cress," Is
yet finer than common cress. But Its
curative qualities need dwelling upon,
for It Is said to be one of the surest
remedies for a disordered digestion.
Tbe seed Is eaten green. When tbo
lower pods are set and the top still lu
flower la the best time, but It can be
used any time. The pleasant, warming, clearing, purifying effect Is felt at
once, und the only directions are to
est the seeda often and as much as Is
agreeable. For croupy children lt mny

Intending to leave the country. The
testimony of the detectives went tu
show that lie betrayed many Blgns uf
guilt when tnken IntocuBtody uml Unit
before being put on trial he virtually
confessed tu the murder, At the trial
the prisoner mnde no defense beyond
declaring his Innocence. To the careless oliserver lie seemed su weighted
down with bis guilt that he could nut
nroiiae himself. The trial was little
better Uiul- " formality, ami two ur

Ue was calm uml quiet, nml it was a
couple of weeks before he woke up, as
It were. As In the case of nil other life
prisoners, he was put In Bolltory eon*
fluement for tbe Hrst mouth. The time
had only half expired when he began
weeping, crying and shouting, ami
when the deputy came to bim he
walled out:
"Set me free! Let tne out of this! 1
nm here for murdering Clara, but (Jod
knows that 1 am an Innocent maul"
His tears and ravings were taken ns
the result of a guilty conscience. There
was no pity for him, but because be
continued to wall be was taken from
the "solitary" anil put lo work. It was
little work they could get out of bim.
His tits of weeping prevented that He
was lectured by the deputy and the
warden, but It seemed as If he could
not restrain himself.
It Is a rare thing to Hud one prisoner
pitying another ut* believing that a fellow convict has been unjustly condemned, Harlow hail not been in prison six weeks before he was uu object of
ridicule nnd contempt among the prisoners, and be was sternly told by Ihe
authorities that if he didn't brace up be
would be punished. The man did his
best, as everybody came to believe, but
It was no use.   He tried suicide three
upset all discipline for ■ time and create a sensation for the newspapers.
When the governor appeared among
them alone, tbey changed their plan.
Of a suddeu as his excellency stood
looking ut tbe work In baud the four
men raised a shunt, rushed upon him
* am) hustled him luto tbe alley between
j tbe tailor sbup sud Ibe shoe sbup. lu
two uilmiles the wliulv prlmm was lu

lu the tllllor shop where Itarluw wus
ut wurk there was only one guard over
the thirty live men. The fellow loot bis
bead at mice, uud the Orel man tv
i enrii him wan Harlow.  The revolver
! was wrenched from Mm hand, ami he
was IluiiK aside uh Ihe Ihlrty live
rushed Into the yuiil. None of tbeui
hud as yet espied ibe governor, but
when It became kiiuwu that lie bud
beeu capttired Hurluw dived strulglit
fur Ihe spot where he wiih being beld.
Then, crowding Ibe governor buck, be
stood lu front of him aud leveled bis
weapon at (he cheering, cursing, excited mob and warned them that it wuuld
be death to them to cuiue nearer.
|     Fur   lift    minuies   pandemonium
reigned In tbat yard. Tbe mob surged
frum aide tu side of the yurd, sacking
the building, desli-uylng machinery end
defying the guards. The shoe shop wus
set un lire, and above all tbe confusion
tbe notes of tbe alarm bell were beard
summoning help from tbe town.
In time most of the prisoners were
marched to their cells and lucked up,
but a score or more continued delimit
and were not overcome for nn hour, nnd
then only after three of them had beeu
shot. During all this time one man
stood between the governor and death
—the convict Barlow. The "desperates" begged, coaxed, cursed and
threatened. They menaced bim with
missiles, they sorely wounded hlui
again and again, but tbey dared uot lay
hands on bim, dared uot cross the Hue
be had drawn. When all waa over, be
sat down and wept. The governor
went furth without a scratch on bis
Everybody said here was a case for
Instant pardon, aud yet— It was a
heroic thing on the part of Harlow,
but he hud been sentenced for life for a
cold blooded murder. Nor did be ask
for a pardon. What ho did ask wus
that his innocence might be proved.
He bad gune over thc whole case in his
mind a hundred times, and now he wus
able to throw some light on certain
dark spots. The governor had uo doubt
of his guilt, aud yet he employed men
at his own expense to go over tbe
ground. .
Itut hy a mere accident after all Harlow was cleared. In another state and
hundreds of miles away a horse thief
was mortally Injured liy a full from the
: horse he had stolen.   Before dying tbat
, man, who had not heard of the trial aud
Conviction of Harlow, confessed, among
! oltier things, tbat he had entered the
' house where Mrs. Harlow whs slopping
to secure plunder,   lie wss lu the room
; when she woke up and cried out, and
be hit ber on tbe head with an Irun
. bolt. He hail no Idea that he had
caused her death, as he had not struck
to kill. Harlow bud beeu tbere lu the
evening io get word with ber and make
up tlieir quarrel, but she refused to
speak. Wheu arrested, he was simply
cuing tu a distant point, far from the
scene of his domestic troubles,
If bis guilt bad seemed clear when
tried before, his lUUOCencS seemed no
less clear wheu he faced a Jury the sec-
ond time.   Leaving out his actlou dur* ,
