When he got nearly home lie took the
notion to ieturn to town, ami started to

on ihe track near the Moyie Lumber
company's siding, ami peihaps never

showed that it had been dragged a con
siderable distance, anil that the entire
train had passed over him. Both leg!
ami arms were broken, and bis whole
body was more or less mangled.

F. D. McCarthy, the 15 year-old son
of M, McCarthy, engineer on the Kitchener steam shovel, was found dead last
l-'nliy within an halt mite of Kitchener,
where he bad expired from hunger uud
exhaustion. The cast.- is one uf ihe saddest in the history of this section. The
family live at Creston, but the father has
been at Kitchener for some time with
the steam shovel. The boy was there
with lilm, and on Tuesday afternoon of
last week lie took u gun ami started out
for a short hunt iu the snow covered
hills near Kitchener, where deer abounds
iu great numbers. That night he did
not return, and when the father inquired
for him, the Chinese rook said be bail
seen the boy hoard u west bound train,
and the statement wns accepted as evidence of the fact Unit the lad bail returned to his home al Creston. Uu
Wednesday the lather went home ami
was overcome with horror mid grief
when he learned that the boy had not
returned as had been reported by the
Chinaman. Mr. McCarthy lost no lime
in getting back to Kitchener mid found
that nothing had been heard or seen of
his missing hoy, Then ihe full import
of the awtul calamity burst upon him.
He knew thut somewhere iu the hills bis
sou was struggling lur I'fe, but without
avail, as be had without a doubt become
lost in the thickly limbered country. A
searching party was organized uud the
sad work begun. Not until Friday was
the body found. The father hud hoped
against hope, and ihe finding of the remains of the poor b.»y confirmed the
worst fears of all. He was lying on bis
face with his arms outstretched, and the
snow wns torn up about lli 111, showing
that he had evidently hud a terrible
struggle at the last before be succumbed
from utter exhaustion The boy's gun
was stauding against a tree near where
the body was found Following bnek on
bis trail, it was shown tbnl he had become bewildered In the thick undergrowth, and had walked around a large
bunch of hushes several times, then had
forced bis way through, starting nnt
igaln, only to come back to his old trail.
The agony of mind suffered b) Ihe boy
before death came lo h t> reliel can hardly be imagined. And, what makes il so
bard, during his final struggles, be was
only about half a mile from Kitchener,
where anxious hearts were beating in
sympathy for him.
Undertaker Campbell waa summoned
Kitchener, nnd took the remains to
Creston, returning wilb them to Cranbrook, and funeral services were held
Sunday afternoon ot St. Marys church,
ami tbe remains interred in the Cianbrook cemetery. The ball bearers were

May be a Bunco (lame.
Vancouver, B. C, Nov. 26.—An American miner named R L. Pinney, who
reached here today from the Klondike,
throws new light upon the mysterious
orderof the Midnight Suu.au alleged
revolutionary society that the Canadian
officials of the Northwest Territory aie
taking very seriously and ate sending
elaborate reports nbout to Ottawa. According to Pinny llie whole thing wns a
bunco game, devised by two gamblers.
They were broke when ihey struck
Skagway last winter after an unsuccessful season in the Klondike. They heard
much talk against the Canadian government nud tbey devised a scheme of revolution with a secret society. They
fixed up a seal, prepared an elaborate
Initiation ceremony and charged fi5 n
head ns a membership lee. Many miners, among whom was I'inney, j .1111 d as
a lark. Malty persons were bled for considerable ntnniinls, the chief victim being Shirty Chambers, who inn u pack-
horse train from Skagway to White
Horse. He was I old thai the revolutionists would destroy the railroad and thus
throw a fortune into his way. Me gave
up over $3000, it is said.
I'inney saitl the gamblers never meant
to start nny revolution.
The English government has accepted
the ofTer of another Canadian contki-
gent, to consist of not less than 600 men,

New York, Nov. 30.—An official of the
American Smelting and Refining company says; "So far no decision is reached
as to what tht* company will give ore
producers for ore next year. The conferences in progress may last some time
before the matter is adjusted. There is
liltle doubt, however, that an arrangement will be made satisfactory to both
sides. The agreement is not likely to
affect the lead market. That will be l
governed more by supply and demand
than by anything else."

political situation has been hopelessly
muddled for months with no Immediate
prospect of relief. When Martinism received its quietus two years ago it was

of incompetence  attaching  to so many

jj Morning
I      Glory
Once upon n lime, somewhere, in
Somebody's garden, there grew a
Mornlug Glory vine. Nobody knew
how It cuitiL' there, for no ont- had
planted It, but It was a pretty little
thing, with green hearts for leaves uml
euuulug little pale green curls here uml
there upon its fuzzy stem.
Shu wanted to get up off the ground
where she had been all of lier short
life, so she crept slowly along lo tltul
something to take hold or that she
might cllinli high tip Into tho bright
Bunllght. She put out her tender tendrils and felt carefully along, for she
was blind, poor Utile thing, niul could
not see where she was going.
As sho reached out she felt something hard, "Ali, perhaps this Is some*
thing high," thought the Morning
Glnry. so slu> crawled up the side quite
to the (op. Hut she wus not high ut nil
—not uiiH-li higher tliun (he ground—
for It was only u small stone that sho
had found. So she sadly crept back
down ihe other shit-, uml sho lay there
quite discouraged.
There wus nu old man who used to
take care of Somebody's garden, und
he snw this plant growing there and
groping about for support, so he fas-
toned u string from n peg stuck into
tlit* ground up to Somebody's window
sill, nm) then he quite forgot all
about It.
The next morning the .Morning Glory
felt more cheerful, uud she started
upon her search again. She hml not
fur to go this time, because tho kind
old man bad fastened the peg very
near to where slit' lay. So she reached
about with caution to avoid another
stone ami took hold of the string.
The poor, sightless llttlo thing did not
know that the old iiinn had put It there
for her, but somehow she felt thnt It
WOUld lend her to where she wished to
go-up townrd the beautiful blue sky
uml the great golden sun.
So she climbed along the string,
slowly ut lirst, then faster each day ns
she begun to know the wny, until, like
jack's bean Btalk, tihe hud reached the
window sill.
Now, Somebody, the person who
owned the garden, wns Ul—ho til thnt
■he hml lo slay nlwnys In his room with
an ugly blink bandage over his eyes,
uml the doctors feared thut be might
never see again.
He wus

one morning tbe Morning Glory
brought her friend a surprise. She hud
kept It ii secret ull the while, und now
she proudly put it great, beautiful pink
blossom Into his band,   Uu could not

it wus lovely, uml be kissed (tu- pretty
Mower und murmured, "Vou little
beauty." And Unit mittle the .Morning
Glory very happy, for all mothers

Ami tbe next morning Somebody hud
a surprise for ihe Morning Glory. That
was a secret too, No one know It yet
but the doctor, nml Somebody drew the
liuie Morning aiory close to his lips
uml whispered 11 Into her ear. Then
th.- Utile green hand twined nbout the
grent whit, , uml this is whul it
snlil: "I tint so glad Unit you ure not
going to be blind nny liioro." And
Someboily understood It, uud lho Morning Glory ngnln felt two grent, warm
drops, which she knew to be tears. Hut
they were not bitter tears, like the lirst
ones; they wero very BWCet, because
tbey were tears of joy. wWto    (1(|k  (-,tmrtered),  sou   m..|

So  little  Morning  Glory   hung  her
leaves In sadness and quite forgot to
feel proud of her pretty pink babies, j
for tiiere were a great many of them
Once she felt something tug nt her I
roots, mid a rough band grasped her; j
then a kind voice saldi   "Don't touch i
that.   Muster loved (he Utile vine, and
It must be left ns it is."   Oh. how relieved llttlo Morning Glory felt lit these I
words!   She reached out nnd tried to
touch the speaker, but the maid bur- ,
rled away and  never saw the little
green hands ut ull.
Soon (be nights began to be chilly, '
and one by one her babies left ber und
fluttered to tbe ground, nnd she herself i
grow pnlo and felt very weak and 111,
and she feared that Bho wns going to
die. How she wished (hut Somebody
would coma bnek! Site was afraid that
be would be too late.

0 (.milium, 1001, nr c. s. urns, o
I hud fallen in with Leon Messerve
up the Mediterranean, aud it wns more
Hum eight mouths before we got back
to Paris, He wits a young man of i!G,
educated, well off, u Jolly cumpiiulon
and ii good frl I. We hml rooms together iu Paris, nud we had been living
together for n month when he received
word from tils notary one day that ho
was llmineiiill.v ruined, I never did
learn tbe full particulars, but It seemed that nn estate he lind fallen heir to
hud n defective title uml after u legal
contest passed lo another. As Leon's
sole Income had been derived from the
revenues of this estate, he was left tint.
At the lime he beard the news lie iliU
not have a hundred dollars in cash.
Of course 1 did my best to console him,
but be was proud ami sensitive and
would be under obligations to no man.
After n two hours' talk, iu which nothing was sel (led except the firet that he
would not accept a loan from me, great
or small, ho went out without saying
when lie would return.
When three days bad passed without
Messerve returning or sending word,
1 became so noxious that I weut to
bis notary for Information. Nothing
could   be   learned   of   him   there.     I
spent two days wandering nbout in tbe
hope of catching sight of him, mid a
private detective lu my employ spent
three more, but we got no truce. 'Then,
1'i'iiriii!* that he bud made away with
himself uml by the advice of the notary, I went to the police. To my great
amazement, no sooner had my story
been related than I was put under arrest and our Joint apartments were
searched from top to bottom. When 1
Indignantly protested, the inspector uu-
"He was your friend. You are tho
last one who saw him. You must produce him or lie under the suspicion of
having encouraged him to self murder. Perhaps you wanted to rid yourself of htm when you found that he
was ruined."
I sent for the notary, but he wns
noncommittal, lie was evidently
afraid of the police. He did say (hat
Leon considered me bis best friend uml
that I Innl been very anxious about bis
dlstippenrniice, but there wus no heartiness In his defense <T me. Al) the Bilt-
tsfactloii that 1 could get from the
American minister wus that he would
WOtcll the case. I wns "officially detained" for being accessory to the
mysterious   disappearance   of   Leon
Messerve. I wns arrested for Interference with an officer lu discharge of
bis dudes, although i hml simply protested. Further, 1 was put under surveillance us a suspicious person,   All
this meant that I was locked up in the
house of detention while the police
went bunting, not for tbe missing mail,
but for evidence (o Incriminate me. I
could have got hail, but as I was not
a citizen of the country bail was refused. I was willing to employ agents
to make further search for my friend,
but this was not allowed. Even the
notary was forbidden lo make nny
move lu that direction.
For seven weeks I was a prisoner,
while the police bad charge of my
apartments uml would give me uo news
whatever. The lawyer 1 employed
said that we must let the law take Its
course—that Is, we must wait until the
rficials of lhu law got ready to let me
preve my Innocence, If I couldn't
pttn'e thnt 1 was not accessory to the
missing man's suicide, then It would
go hard wllh mo. There enme a day
nt last when l was arraigned iu court.
It was m.l on (he main charge, but on
thnt of obstructing the law. I bait
simply asked ihe Inspector what be ex
pected (o liml In my apnrtments to
Bhow whut hml become of uiy missing
friend. Thai wns made out to be "obstructing," and I was Qued a sum equal
to about $-■■■ The next dny I was

my duty miilcr tin* law to have notified
the pollen nt once of Leon's disappearance, but 1 hud Waited several diiys before dulng so. Being derelict in my
duty, I was lined $7. There wus still
a third charge. 1 bud employed private detectives when 1 shuuld buve notified the regular police. This was
holding ibe law In contempt, It was
clearly within the province of the
court to Hue me for that, but as 1 was
it stranger tli France and had not tieeli
found guilty of any criminal offense
this charge would bo overlooked. 1
wus then given my liberty, with a
warning to be more circumspect in the
future. My altorucy bud not opened

came ami acres led him, uml two days
later he was tried and convicted of the
charge of "raising a false ami unnecessary iibiini and cAuslng the oUlcers of

that he had not committed suicide, uml
he was fined $20, I do not kuow that
the police would have brought further
charges, but 1 did not wait to give tlu-m
a chance. Bidding my companion adieu,
I packed up and crossed the channel

The  llllllll  Smoker'.  Cigar,
We are often told lhat u man who Is
smoking in the dark would be ll liable
to tell whelher his olgur were alight or
uo unless lie could see the red glow ut
Ihe end of It. So, too, a man with tils
eyes shut would  have great difficulty
in telling whether he were drinking
port or sherry. Now, as I have been
blind for upward of :to years I am unluckily somewhat fairly i|iinl[fk'il to
contest the validity of this statement
I was a smoker for 20 years before my
infirmity crept upon me, und I am
Btnoklug even now ns I dictate this letter. In fact, I have smoked all my
To say that I do not know whether
my cigar Is alight or no because I cannot see either the smoke or the red
glow at the end of the weed is simply
absurd. The taste alone Is sufficient to
tell me accurately. The one Is Infinitely

Incontrovertible testifiers, 1 grant that
the pleasure of smoking Is lessened by
the absence of the sight of tbe smoke,
but only slightly, ami to assert that 1

whether I nm standing on my bead or

"Now," said the big buck deer to hli
eldest born, "I will show you a sight
thut you never saw before mid 1 um so
proud of that I feel like walking
around on my hind legs all the test ot
my life."
"Why," said the fawn, "It Is a man,
as I live!"
"Yes," said the fawn's proud parent,
dragging out (he carcass from behind a
tree, "and now, like u goud little deer,

I tell you how your papa did such a
brave deed? Then listen, my son. This
morning, In company with my faithful
bloodhounds, 1 trucked the man
through the forest, drove him into the

swimming nbout almost exhausted. I

Moral.—"But, papa," said the fawn,

It Wai ft  Wonderful  Touch,
The late bishop of Louisiana, the
Right Itev. .Joseph I'. Wllmer, wus once
(raveling hi England with his cousin.
Bishop Richard Wllmer, when an Incident occurred which shows Bishop Joseph's readiness In n trying situation,
The two bishops were being entertained by n gentleman who thought his
wife IiiiiI nil the musical talent ami accomplishment that any human being
can possess, lie Insisted upon a Specimen of her performance. The two
apostolic cousins slood near the piano
Bishop Richard, recognizing that a
compliment would be necessary and
difficult to make, *|Ulctly stepped back,
as most men do ou such occasions,
leaving the position of honor to Bishop
Joseph, wondering what the em] would
be after "the nasnult upon tbe Ivory
keys" might suddenly terminate Iu un
awkward selnli. Bishop Joseph, like a
self possessed woman, with dignity
and sweetness of thought, spoke to the
hungry soul of the adoring husband:
"Is that touch of yuur wife nuturul or
"Oh, It Is perfectly nuturul," replied
the delighted spouse.
"I thought It was," said the bishop,
"for I don't think such a touch could b*
