FERNIE STRIKE  IS OFF
Tbe Men aid the Company Huk Signed
An Agreement.
A 0000 THING  F0K  THE PROVINCE
Smelters Will Resume and thc Mining: Industry Will Be Greatly
Benefited Thereby.
BUSINESS WILL HI* MATERIALY REVIVED
The I'ernie coal mine strike in Bettled.
This is good news to tbe whole province. Il means a resumption ui business
in Fernie, and n great help to nil business interests in tin-  Kootetinys mnl the
Boundary country. The coke supply
lind become exhausted nud ilu- mining
imlusiiy was up against h mod serious
proposition. In fact, if conditions bnd
not changed this week for the'better,
it would have been necessary to hnve
closed down the smellers in Nelson, the
Boundary country ami Nortllport, This
meant dhaster to many communities,
for the closing down of lhe mines would
have followed as lhe necessary sequence,
It ia understood that a general agreement hus been signed by lhe Crows Nest
Coal company aud tbe men ou a basis of
H!-hours from lump station to lamp station, one half hour to be allowed for
tuncb. This agreement Is for two
months, both sides stipulating that any
differences that may arise during that
time will be euhjecled lo further amicable arbitration. It is understood that
there is a slight hitch ou on one or two
technicalities, but tiiere is no doubt that
everything will he satisfactorily settled,
The Herald is glad to see this come
about, and feels tike congratulating the
company on its departure from Its first
position, which repulsed all attempts nt
arbitration. Corporations and men are
liable to error. Neither are Infallible,
and it does not look well.uor is it in
keeping with modern ideas or civilized
progression to deny their employes the
Igbt oi an iiont'.t and sincere presentation of their grievances, Especially a
corporation thai, under the benlficent
laws of a province, is ei piying nu absolute monopoly of nu Industry ou
which rests the prosperity ofmlulngln
this province.

*   OBSERVATIONS |
BY TII K OLD MAN .*>
■Nl99^^i9»a»tKaM«««ftmt^
L»st week, with our better half, we
started out for n few days' recreation.
Our first slop wns at Elko as the guests
of Messrs. Stephens and Crahan, hi lhe
Melbourne holel. Elko we found quiet,
■is compared with cu ml it ions a few
months ago, when htt'dreds of men
were employed in the building of the
Hruisb Colombia ,\ Southern railroad.
That line Is now virtually completed
from Jennings, Mont., to Morrissey, nml
trains nie running   regularly from Gate*
ar to Jennings, and truffle will he established in a few weeks from Morrissey.
ti ti ti
Kast Friday wc bad the pleasure of
meeting j. J   Hill, ihe president of the
Great Northern,   ll.* had come np to
Qlko with his patty on a special, nml
stopped in lhe lown   about hull'nil llonr.
Mr, Ilill does not resemble tin* accepted
pictures of the famous railroad manager,
He does not look as old by to years, ami
he has a linn, elastic step, a clear eye
and a plain, matter of fuel address
When The Herald man Diet him he was
examining some Ferine coal in a car ou
the C. P, R. s'de track "1 have known
of those et.ni Soldi for years," anld .Mr.
Hill, "long before they ttlked of building the Crows Nest mini through here.
Naturally I am Interested in this section
uh 1 have Interests hero At one time 1
was Interested in lho C, P. K. In fart,
I owned one-tenth of it, but I sold out.
I think lhat the next time 1 visit Hlko I
will he able to take my train on thioiigh
to Fernie, if not further."   And after a
pleasant goodbye, Mr, Hill walked toward the special and in a few moments
he was spenlmg towards the United
Slates. Horn a Canadian, be transferred
his allegiance to Uncle Sam, and today
be is recognized as the grenteat railroad
power on tbe American continent. A
dock laborer at St. Paul iu youth, today
a man with millions at his command. A
living, practical demonstration of the
possibilities of youth on the American
continent, and material evidence ol the
fact that application, conscientious performance ot duty and a determination to
save time and money, brings success,
ti ti ti
Oue of tbe guests of Mr, Ilill from
Gateway to Elko uud return, was Dr.
Watt. The doctor is smooth. He is interested in a railway charter up the
Kootenay valley, and there is not a better place on earth to talk nf sur.li mut-
leis than lu a private car. It in a so to i
ibot that "Dot" got iu some good work
for his syndicate and for South liust
Kootenny on that tiip.
ti ti ti
And ns we watched the special pull
out, and thought that only » few days
ago President Shnugbuessy paused the
smile point in bis privets enr, it occulted
to our mind that there wns another man
worthy of emulation.    Formerly; a teie-
giHph operator at Milwaukee, Wis , but
now a subject of King I-Mward, with
"Sir Thomas" an a prefix to his name,
ami iu charge of a line that starts at the
Atlantic aud stops at Ihe Pacific, with
u line of steamers nailing to all purlh of
Ihe setting suu.
Five years ago wheu we first saw I.lko
it wbb difficult to get across tbe cuuutry
with a Missouti mule. There were no
railroads, no wagou rOSdSi uucoh! iiiiues,
no towns, no railroad shops, no quattz
mines iu operation, no saw mills, uo
evidences ol civilization in this vast district except a atrial) camp at Fort Steele.
And look at it now. Millions have been
invested, and yel tbe work of developing the resources of the country is in
its Infancy. Aud as we looked at the C,
I*. R. aud Great Northern tracks, aud
thought of the wonderful advancement
made in so brief a period, we could not
help hut be impressed with lhe idea that
South Kust Kootenay was a marvelous
district with a iiiaguitlceiit future of
glowing prosperity.
to to s*
And speaking of the future, reminds
us of the fuct lhat the fulls at Elko tur-
nishes one of the greatest water powers
to be found iu all of British Columbia.
The baud of mau could uot have designed a water power with more care or
thought for future use. And what gives
it value is the fact tbat within 40 miles
ou every side are situated coal mines,
copper properties, various industries and
growing towns. Iu tbis age of improvement in the transmission of electricity,
40, 50 or 75 miles is simply a question ot
expense in stringing the wire, aud the j
day is coming wheu Elk falls power will I
turn the wheels of iudustry from Feruie
to Moyie and from Gateway to Marysville. Messrs. Stephens and Crahun,
who own the water right, expect uu electrical engineer within a few days to figure on estimates for harnessit g tbe river. Tbey are also iu correspondence
with eastern parties wbo are auxiou-i to
invest capital in such au enterprise in
South liasl Kootenay,
ti ti ti
From lilko we went to J affray to spend
a few days with I,. M. Mansfield and
wife, intli jy is the location of the McNab Lumber company's saw mill, in
which Charles McNab, James Ryan. W.
W. 1 Doble aud J, E. Fenwick own the
controlling interest. There is not a better plant in South East Kootenay, and
no mill has a finer lot of timber. There
is now nearly 1,000,000 feet piled lu tbe
yard, aud front six to 15 cars are being
shipped each week. Charley McNab
nnd Archie Leilch, of the Cranbrook
Lumber company, are old Ottawa river
lumber meu, and at one time used to
drive logs on the opposite side of that
river and fight like two devils, They
ate uow at Ihe head of two of the lead
iug lumber companies of the Kootenays
and are recognized as two of the best
timber meu in this section.

With Mr. Mautdeld we had an opportunity to du some fishing in Dig Sand
creek. It is a beautiful stream to fish,
and it a man wauls real sport, he can
get it in a good trout stream. Mansfield
has fished over most of the trout streams
of Maine, where fishing is an art, and
the choice of a fly is learued ouly after
years of practice. He can smell a trout,
no matter how deep the hole or how
swift the ripple, and to see him land a
two pounder Is worth walking miles.
With a sporty fellow holding on to your
fly, with the reel singing as your victim
MINISTER OF MINES HERE

what trout fishing really means. It will
cine the blues, relieve care, make times
seem good, create an appetite and bring
blessed sleep.
Lacrosse At Fernie.
Col. Prior Meets Wiih Ibe Cranbrook
Board of Trade.
REPLIES   TO   SKHiESTIONS   MADE
Expresses Surprise That Cranbrook
Has No Public Buildings
Worthy the Name.
MAKES NO PROMISES BUT IS DIPLOMATIC
Co], K ft. Prior, minister of mines,
arrived in Cranbroak last Friday, driving over from Fort Steele, he having
come to the district by the way of Golden ami Windermere. He was accompanied by E, C. Smith, M. P. P. The 1
Cranbrook board of trade greeted Mr.
Prior most cordially, and that evening
held an Informal uieeting iu the parlors
of the Cranbrook hotel for the purpose
of discussing several matters of importance to Craubrook ami the district.
W. T. Reid, president of the hoard,
acted as spokesman, and presented the
following matters for the consideration
of Mr. Prior:
Government buildings. Suggested
that those be moved from Fort Sleele to
Cranbrook, the recording office being
left at former point. Reasons for moving these buildings to Crauhrook being
that 90 per cent of the business originates from or conies through Craubrook,
Also Cranbrook, which has a population
of 1500, and is situated on the railroad,
would he more convenient, as parties
going lo Fort Steele have to lose a day
driviug out.
There are no vaults In government
buildings at Fort Sleele, and iu case of
lire, documents would he destroyed,
3 The constable here ls at pieseut
itoiug recording work, for which he receives no remuneration. As his salary
as constable is uot very large, it is
thought he should be allowed fees for all
recording done by htm.
4 Business meu have been paying
from oue lo five dollars per month out
of their own pockets to provide a night
watchman, and think tbe government
should allow a second constable,
5 Wagon road through to Perry creek
aud Marysville. This proposed road
will be three or four miles shorter than
present old trail. A survey has been
made by Mr. McVittie and report presented.
6 The government allowance for this
district said to be too small, as out 01
$86,000 or $87,000, ouly $14,000, or one-
sixth of what is paid in, is allowed.
7 Side walks. All tbe side walk in
Crauhrook, with tbe exception of one to
tbe school,have been put down aud paid
for bv the citizens, who also did the
grading of the main street ut a cost of
about f5«Mj.
8 Appropriations for expenses in connection with the school too small, and
several bills now outstanding for stove,
wood, etc.
Col. Prior replied to the statement set
forth by Mr. Reid in detail as follows:
"I will uow say two or three words. I
am iu this part of the country for the
first time, but I have beard a good deal
regarding its advantages from my old
friend, Col. llaker. 1 cam*? down from
Golden through the valley, and I think
I am tbe first to come that way. Iu
stopping off I have Been some good
specimens of ore. At Wilmer I was
told tbe Red Lion mine was looking as
welt as it could, aud that tbey were
bringing in a large amount of machinery, Tbe Paradise mines also were in
good shape. At Fort Steele Mr, Grace
showed me a large collection of mineral
specimens. I was also told that the
Sullivan aud North Star mines were expected tu improve iu a very short lime.
"At Fort Steele I found there wus a
little feeling, and I understand trade
from Fort Steele is coming to Ctanbiook.
''I am much obliged lu you business
men for permitting uie lo spend au hum
with you. Will say that the government   wants  tu do  what   Is square nnd

game, L.s Wedneaday.   In lhe game of | cour.e, know it I. almoft lu.poaait.le to
the Seniors with Lethbridge tbe score
wns H to 1 in favor of Feruie. This ties
Fernie and Lethbridge for first place
and the Levasseur cup.
Iu the game of the Juniors of Fernie
and Craubrook, Ferule won by a score of
6 to 0. The game was a good one, but
uot fairly matched, as it )s said that several of the Fernie players were aturdy
young meu, while the Cranbrook team
waa made up of little chaps, every one.
But our boys did not kick. They said
they did the best they could uuder tbe
circumstances.
Elk Pack Bridie In Bad Shape.
The people of Klko are complaining
about the dangerous condition of the
pack bridge over the Elk river near the
falls. As one man put it last week, "the
mau who fulls off that bridge will never
live to tell the tale." Tbe railing U In
a very bad condition and the bridge
ahould have Immediate attcutlon.
do justice to all the requirements,
"Regarding government buildings,you
surprise me when you say there are none
worthy tbe name at Cranbrook, Was
also very surprised there were uo vaults
at Fort Steele, and I think it very wrong
that Importaut documents should he
lying around on shelves. I consider the
proper method would be for one copy to
be sent to Victoria, one kept in tbe
records ollice here and a triplicate giveu
tbe man making tbe record. I am not
In a position to make any promises bul
will bring the attention of my colleagues
at Victoria to these facts. Of course iu
a mining country, until the mines ate
developed, you can never tell how long
a place will stand. However, your town
uow seems on a good footing nml 1 will
bring your wishes to the uttentiou of
Mr, Wells.
"Mr. Morris as constable is under the
attorney general aud as mining reco.der
la uuder myself, and I will tulu- the mutter up wilb my deputy as soon as 1 ai-
rive. I think the constable has enough
to do for his salary v.lihout undertaking
anything else. Regatdiug a second constable, I am unal.lt- to say ou what basis
constables are appointed, but in a town
like this where there is a large amount
ol value iu the stuies, I should think a
night watchman necessary, especially in
a mining community where tbe boys
are likely to get a liltle off. I will bring
this io ihe attention of the attorney gen*
eral.
"In regaid to the wagou road, I presume Mr. Kil lee ii has beeu over Ibis?"
Mi. Miner: "No, Mr. Killeeu absolutely refused to go."
Mr Prior: "I will bring the matter to,
the attention of Mr. Wells aud if the
mailer comes up ia the executive I shall
be in 11 position to speak.
"In legard tu the estimates being too
small, )uii perhaps have iooked it up, I
cannot say. Your member oak tut doubt
done all that is possible.
"Regatdiug Aid walks aud bridges, I
will draw Mr. Wells' attention to the
matter.
"Would say thnt of all tbe departments over aud above my own. Mr.
Prentice of the educational department
takes the greatest interest, $414,000
being paid out yearly for educational
matters, bul if your claim It just I am
till re it will be attended to."
The Ureat Dane.
A Pilot Hay correspondent of tbe Nelson News siiys thut a crosscut tunnel
which is being driven on tbe Great Dane
propei ty is believed to have cut the vein
at a point 223 feet in. Reports are to
llie effect that uie was broken tn tbe last
round. Ou the surface tbis vein shows
three feet of ore, Ou the main ledge
there is in sight a body of pay ore six
feet wide. Ou both veins tbe ore is a
massive galena, carrying chalcopyrite.
Sawyer Bros, have returned from tbe
Black Prince group of seven claims on

of work bas beeu done, Ther* are four
tends ou the property, all carrying gold
uml cupper 01 e of good grade. A small
crew has been working lately and tbe
owners suy the property continues to
show up well. They state tbat the Climax, which adjoins tbe Black Prince
gruup, uud is owned by Messrs. Cogle
and Dickson, has one of tbe most re-
muikable showings of copper ore in the
country. The veiu is five and a half to
six aud n half feet wide ou the surface,
ami in a 35-foot crosscut giving jo feet
o( ,iv|>tti, Ualgbt rcci wide, iiie vein ts

uud the values, which are very equally
distributed throughout the vein, so far
as it has been prospected, are, ,'t i$
claimed, well ubjve tbe pay limit. "

beeu working 011 their claims, the Mer-
uiiiin and Derby, adjuiuiug tbe Com-

Robert Duismore of Fernie Cuts His
Throat
MENTALLY AFFECTED BV ALTITLDE
The Lonely Vigil of William Lip-
hardt on Mountain Top
With Corpse.
A HARD TRIP FOR Till: RBSCUINQ H-tRTY
Fernie, Aug. 4.—A strange suicide
look place on the summit of one of the
highest mountaiiis iu the vicinity of
Fernie yesterday. Early Saturday morn*
Ing Keith Wbimster, William Llphardt
and Robert Dunsmore started out to
make the submits ot what are known as
the Three Sisters. Tbe Ims circled
Mount Feruie ami were well an towards
ihelr destinations by Saturday night,
tbelr camp fire being visible to the people of Fernie, some eight or nine miles
away,
The boys started early Sunday morning to complete their trip, and Duns*
more appeared to be iu the best of splits till witbiu half a mile of the summit,
wheu he complained of piitis in thc
stomach. Lipbaidt uud Whituiter. uot
not caring to sbaudon I belt trip when
so near their destination, advised him to
roll himself up iu his blankets until Ihey
returned. He agreed to do this and the
boys went on.
Tbey bad not proceeded far wheu
tbey noticed Dunsmore fit up and watch
them several times When they were
within a few yards of the top they happened to look around ami saw Duns-
more roll from his blank-;! and down the
hill, about 10 feet. They immediately
returned, thinking tie had beeu taken
more violently ill, but what was their
horror to find that he bad cut bis throat
and was lying in a pool of blood. His
blanket was saturated and his knife lay
not far away. He still lay conscious,
but apparently was linking fast.
Whimster started to Feruie for assistance at once, leaving l.ipbiidl with the
dying man. He had 13 or 14 miles of
heavy mountain work to do, but arrived
here hardly able to crawl, Ox hours
later.
Aietiefparty Parted out at once ud
reached the spot at 10 o'clock ini; morn*
ing. They found Dunsmore dead and
Llphardt so overcome with the nervous
strain tbat be was uuabie to talk for
tome time.
Dunsmore had died hail an hour after
the departure of Whinip-aer on Sunday.
Tbey decided tbat it was impossible to
bring lhe body borne as tbe road was so
difficult to travel, so they buried bioi 10
miles from town on the other side of
Mount Fernie. Liphardt is in such a
condition tbat he will uot be able to
make tbe trip until tomorrow.
There is nothing to account for the
rash act of Duusniore, save that he did
it in a fit of temporary Insanity, caused
by the high altitude. Robert Dunsmore
was a nephew of J. A. kenuie, one of
Pernie's leading merchants, and occupied tbe position of book keeper in the
Crows Nest Trading company'*-, store.

Written over the face of the article. The

a violation of the law, and unfortunately
for tbe guilty Individual he left a certain

A Big Lumber Industry.
Slocan City has a brand new Industry In an advanced st^ge of promotion
that promises to substantially relieve
the dullness that lias beset the entire
Slocan as a whole as the result of tbe
depression lu lead mining- H Is a
venture lu lumbering that combines
several important elements of success
Adjacent to Slocan City Is a valuable
timber limit, which contains according
to the report of an expert cruiser, not
less than rTn,()0O,i)Ui) feet of lumber. This
limit Is owned by local people principal uinong whom Is Mayor York l.ist*
tern sawmill people have form-id a syndicate to Include the Slocan timber limit
owners, and the proposition will ut-
doubteiily taite a --radical shape In a
month or so. The easterners propose
to erect a large mill wllh a capacity
of .'.11,111111 feet per diem, and the local
people put their timber lands Into the
syndicate as their share of tbe capital.
Application Is being made to the municipal!.v of Slocan Ody f ir the lots necessary to constitute the tiilM site, and
the Importance nt securing the Industry
for the town is 10 well appreciated that
It Is llkley to guarantee ihe voting of
the fundi icqulred for the purchase of
tbepurposeil site.
Tbe plant WOUld give conilnoui employment to ah jut one hundred men, including the crews that would be employed
In the logging gangs. The company
would ilnl an 1 i.n put in tbemijor portion
of Its product In the N irthwesi Territories which promise to furnish an unlimited m-rtket for nrltl*h Columbia

It is stated that the Canadian Pacific
will undertake to purchase from the

According tu the report of Mr.

The following: Huron, Ilmnt,

.Mr. Southworth explains tlmt
ovorclearance bus affected the western i.ihI midland counties tu a greater extent Hi.in thu eastern portion
of the province, lu Prince Edward
und Orenville counties und in two
groups of towmihips forming tho
southern portions nf Lennox, Add-
lngton uud Hustings Counties, tho
progress of deforeslratlon bus been
hi rested, und there is a slight increase fu the wooded area.
A survey of the forestry situation
lu Ontario gives reason for both
congratulation nod dissatisfaction,
says th** report. The Province bus
gun* far towards solving the
forestry problem us fur ns Crown
lands are concerned, but the woodland area in older Ontario is getting
scantier und scantier, until dt'tiutliv
tion is Imminent. As regards reforestation, lie says thut Ontario's
position is much better than that
of tbe adjoining States, owing
to the fact thnt binds nre held hy
tbe Crown when timber licenses ure
grunted.
Speaking of the growth of forest
reserves, Mr. Southworth soys that
tbu Lake Tenuigutiii rosorve, which
comprises l,-10u,000 acres, contains
from 8,000,000,000 to 5,000,000.000
feet, board measure, lie racam-
mends the further Increasing of these
reserves, in districts where the land
l.i fitted for the growth of limber.
Hu says there are large tracts of
country on the north sharo of tho
Georgian Hay. ami lying along a..-
O.P.K. between Pembroke nnd Mftt-
tawa, which are being reclothed
with young pine, und liu thinks
these could be advantageously set
ludde us timber reserves, the only
difficulty h.'ing tbe cancelling of ihe
licenses, He recommends un addition to the Sibley Township reserve,
Mr. Southworth regwds ihe disposal of the brush, etc., left by the lumbermen as one of Ihe serious forestry problems. It is it menace because of its combustibility, and ll
prevents new growths.
Lumbermen, ho says, nre beginning to realize thc value of trinntng
as un Industry, mid are paying more
attention lo the bark of the hemlock.
The report contains a resume of
the legislation In the different States,
of the union regarding forestry.
Thought "HUM <*r-u*.u" tt Woman.
A Kenwood lady who belongs to
a literary club, und hft9 written papers about a number uf things,
while culling with her husband at
the home of one uf the professors ui
the University of Chicago a fow
evenings ago, expressed a desire tu
■eo the hitter's library, says Tho
Chicago Heiiiid-Heriild. "I have
such a lov« fur books," slit; said,
"thnt when I go Into a house when.
I know there ure a whole lui of

is a library to look through. My I
l'tofi-ssoi, what m lot uf fine books
you have! 1 like to see books arranged tbat way. loo, wiih (ho different kinds uf bindings nil mixed

look so much more oasy, don't vou

a neat little volumo from o d (be

professor, for I do think * lie's BO
sweet. I've been reading sovoral
articles about her in tho newspapers
latelv, and I'm just In lov« wilb
her."
The professor coughed behind his
hand ibiid died to get ihe lady's ni
tentlon centred upon a first edition
of Uoswell's "Johnson" thai he hud
found in n* London bookBhop, but
she couldn't get over her enthusiasm
fur Bliss Carman, und after ,* hasty
glance at the old I I. suit]:
"I do think she writes some of
the loveliest things I ever saw. she
seems to have such a lender——"
"Excuse mo for Interrupting you,"
■aid the professor, nimble to O „nd
It any longer, "but DIJss Carman is
a man."
"A man! Why, nn, professor; ymi
must be mistaken. I know she
writes under a noin du plume, lint
vou know she is really the Queen of
Bulgaria, or Armenia, or something
over there. Didn't you ever hoar
thut  before?"
The professor sighed and turned
away, possibly ashuined of his ignorance.

the only object of lhe couple in coining
liure was to see the  view   Ihey   were
uiuply repaid. From their conversation since they left iho hotel, which
now lay behind them bidden by a
fringe uf the forest, it WOUltl have been
difficult tu say tluu this wns nut llielr
only object. The small tnlk of ne-
qualntancesblp, friendship and even
love is within certain limits ami among
people batiltualed tn each other's conventions practically Indistinguishable,
Frequently it Is dlilicult to decide why
the degrees shuiild be of su touch consequence to the pnrtles,
It was knowledge of the world und
tbe good temper of experience that
kept Mrs. Hugonln nml Arthur Kin*
nalrd on perfectly unriiltliHl terms with
each other. The conviction tlmt he hml
long ago forgiven her, gratifying ns it
once had been, was now of such long
(standing tbat It had become confused
with her earlier and less jtistiitnlde
conviction thnt he ultimately would
forgive her. Thus secure In vindication, the lust for which the dying Eve
bequeathed to nil her sex, Mrs. Hu-
goiiin eould without the slightest reflection upon her widowhood accept
once more the companionship of a man
who tolernteil lite ns comfortably ns
Arthur Kinnnird. The imminence of
the climacteric which she knew to be
threatening him wns uot to be read
from his figure. Ilis step was alert,
bis cheeks were bronzed, his tastes
were ratfonal, and what more could
be desire?
She pushed back her dark hiilr under
its somewhat youthful cap, uud, leaning her elbows on the ledge, gn/etl
without speaking ut the hounted detlle.
Klnnuird gaven little Intigh behind her.
"Margaret," be Bald, "upou my word, It
seems as If we were boy and girl
again."
"Why, particularly?" she asked,
without turning her head.
"Oh, all this summer," be replied,
She did oot ask lilm to be more ex- j
pllclt "It is certainly nn Ideal plnce,"
ahe said wltb a half sigh. "Vet it is
foolish to say thai the beauties of nature restore one's youth. One may feel
young again, but one Is not really any
the less dispassionate."
"1 nm not so sure of that," said Kinnnird. "I should like toiugne the point
Wltb you—If It could be argued."
"You men are all alike," snld Mrs.
Hugonln with an Inconsistent slung of
her shoulder.    "You give tip to logic j
what was meant for conversation."
Kin nalrd stroked his must a.he
thoughtfully for a moment. "Ami so ■
you think me dispassionate?" he ob- :
served.
"You?" said Mrs. Mugoiiln, turning
with a delightful laugh. "Why, Arthur, there isn't n sentiment or n con*
vietlon to whose support society could
order yon to contributet"
"If you mean iluii," ho said slowly.
"It is qulto as I feared."
"As you feared?"
"You sllll believe me cnpible of ai
much mistaken self control as I unco
waa. And," be added calmly, "I don't
wonder."
TllOUgb there was no bitterness apparent 111 his lone Mrs.  QugOllltl  WltS

Arthur," sbo snld gravely, bm yci with
n seiiso of iimiisi'inetii. "You petulant

He laughed, but gently. "Come," he

"Upon my word. Arthur," said Mrs.

Khinnlrd moved to the window be-

"You nre much mistaken," be said. In
the undisturbed voice which so pro*
yoked her, "You must Indeed think
thnt I am faking leave of my years. I
never bad much vanity, I think, but
what I bud when I waa younger 1 never made n pet of. Look over there at
the rocks, and what do you see?"
"Rocks —and moonlight. But, Ar-

tlmt Involuntarily her arm struggled
like a bird's Ming to wrest Itself away,
"It Is well for tne to tell the only woman I ever loved that I love her still and

"It is Impossible!**

"You cannot, ennnot be In earnest,"
she stammered.   "Why, you have nev

"Never—until now," be lnugbed. "I
learned something when I lost you tbe
first time—my darling!"
"This," said Mrs. Hugonln, partially
recovering herself. "Is folly, Arthur,
and it is must unfair."
"Unfair," lie said, "to want you for
my wife? No; you moan unfair to take
you off your guard. I will not quibble
With your words," be snld, smiling.

.lie paused a moment and then went
on: "My dear, I have simply hnd to

we will begin ngnln."
Poor Mrs. Hugonln'a breath came
and went, nn unwilling messenger of
passion—or, It might be, of sentiment.
"Perhaps I was in the wrong." she
snld. "Bul why ilitl not yuu think more
of yourself?"
"I am thinking of myself now," said
Khumii'd.
Suddenly, ns Mrs. Hugonln hung distracted and In doubt, tbe el Iff before
them rang faint and sibylline with an
echo, ll was the tuwn clock of the village striking over beyond the trees.
They could not hear It, but, sent from
ledge to ledge in (be still night air, it
struck silvery nml remote on tlie gmti-
ile facade. As It sounded they both
started, ba nl its chin suggestions, she
at iis material reminder,
"Cloud grnclousl" she exclaimed,  "it

"It Is." said Klniminl.
"And we must positively go back to

THE MARRIAG5 PROBLEM.
Tbn   Fro.   -mil   Com   Stated So   I in--   AH
Wlu.  item   Hay  Uuiltriund-
Kiiil.v French StttlMS.
in tbo early days uf French Canada, when lnliles were Lrought over
fu shiploads, und were snapped up
the moment thoy landed on the Boll,
tho marriage habit '<>ok firm root
in the Province uf ipiei.ee, tihere it
bus never since coased tu he popular.
In those days celibacy was luoked
upon wiih such disfavor that the single uuni wbo wilfully shunned tlm
blessings of matrimony wus held to
be a traitor to bis country. Perhaps
if the Province uf Ontario Lad bad
to gu through a skill lur experience
wo would imi now be ougagud in u
dlsctisalon us lu whether ur uut
* weddings are going out of fashion
among our people. A. Toronto clef*
g.vimin bus lately declared that marriage is on tho decline, uud thut th
situation  dues  nut  full   fill' short    uf
being    alarming.      Various thoorb
aro advanced to account for Hm pin
nomonon,    We aro tuld tlmt It costs
I su much iinwiidn.vs lo iinttry uiwl to
keep   up u.   respeotable   appearance
tbut our   people defer uniting their
fortunes   until lute in life, u   postponement    which too often becomes
chronic.    Again, it is said that,   tbe
snuggle for existence is now su keen
because female labor has    displaced
so many of the opportunities    thut
were   formerly open to man,     that
there are proportionately fewer men
able tu support n family  Hum there
were n gonoratlon ago.    it, would bu
idle to deny thnt  this state of     affairs has un important bearing   on
existing    conditions.    But    whether
it    is   the failure of men to marry
that has driven women Into the labor market, or whether it is the   invasion of female labor tbut is nbol-
; Ishing matrimony, is a very nice and
u very delicate question. Certain it
is, however, that an unmarried   women,  unless she is fortunate enough
to be a capitalist, must become    n
competitor with mule or female labor of some sort.    It follows that    in
proportion    ns    some of our young
men fail to grasp the opportunities
that .surround them, the competition
ihey have to meet from this   source
in earning a livelihood will Increase
und  intensify,        Tu     some    extent, |
therefore, it may he argued that tiie
men have the remedy in their     own
hands,  always  provided  that     they ,
can enlisl Cupid in llieir service. Ono
great deterrent to matrimony    in a
new country like this is the unequal
distribution of the sexes.  Our enter- j
prising young  men  strike     out  Into
the West, whits ibe young women as
a nil*- stay ut home.   Separated   us ,
ihey are by thousand"* at mliea,   th?»
opportunity to form those tender relationships which culminate In mar- i
rlugo  is   thus  denied  them.     Jt   was
precisely this state of affairs     that
the pioneers of New France    hnd to!
encounter    in the early history     of
Canada,    Says    The    Toronto  Mail. |
They met thc difficulty by means   off
thti'o     matrimonial excursions     of
which Packman ims given ns po picturesque a-record     We do not think
history is likely to repeat itself     in
this respect, for uur people ure    not I
so docile Or so easily ninunged      o&
were Hie early French settlers,      yet
some such movement is necessary to
adjust the sexes in Canada.   Natural
laws will,  of course,   in  their      own
good tiiuo provide a remedy, but can
we afford to wait for their slow oj>-
erntion?    Here is n problem for our
statesmen to grapple With,       Thousands of harvesters havo gone to tho
West, many of tbem to remain there.
What of the harvesters' sweethearts?
]( we are going     to deal with     tlm
matrimonial issue in n practical way,
there is the place to begin.

The leader of one of the largest
llioie classes that niwis on Sunday
afternoons in Tt-.ii.ntt*--a class attended by adults—was recently dealing with the Scriptural admonition
against being unequally yoked together with unbelievers. He appeared
not to have glvon the subject murh
previous attention, and so ho Houu-
deied, imi presently he resorted    to
tho device of CUttltlg the sentence into short lengths for ensy handling,
with   Ihis  edifying   result.       "He     ys
not unoqualty yoked,-' he pondered,
"Here is an Important Injunction, If,
fur Instance, you danco, although I
don't want to ho understood ns fa-
vorlng diiiiciiiH-duit If you t\u dunce,
be not unequal ly yoked, but lot the , -
men dance with the men nml thsl-*
women with tin* women." This enlightened Interpretation of tho Scrip*
turns no doubl greatly Intorostcd the
grown men who heard it.
There appears lu he ii" limit to
what can he got out ol lhe Dlble by
