ENGLAND AND FRANCE.
During the past few weeks Uie relations between Great Britain and Prance
have been such as to make the Britisli
public apprehensive of war, and the
urgent orders given to the army and
navy to be ready for action at a moment's
notice increased the feeling of uneasiness. It was therefore witli suppressed
nervous excitement that Lord .Salisbury's speech on Ibe occasion of the
banquet given to General Kitchner by
ilie lord mayor <>f London a few days
since was listened to  by   the assembled
guests, especially as the premier was expected to make an important statement,
lie snid llial while all the causes of
controversy between the two great
powers had not been removed, the most
difficult point at issue bad been settled,
the 1?tench having agreed to withdraw
from l-ashoda.
Before, but especially it'mve. the murder of General UordOH al Khartoum in
lhe Soudan, the power of the Dervishes,
whose territory bordered ou tlmt of
Egypt, hns been a continual menace to
tbe peace of the latter country, raids being constantly perpetrated. Lord Rose-
bery, when proposing the toast lo tbe
army nnd navy, t-aiil tbnt the campaign
just closed had wiped out the "bloodiest
aud most barbarous tyranny in the history of mankind." It was necessary
that the Soudan should be pacified and
brought under the control of Egypt and,
indirectly, under tbut of Britain.
For a long while tbe French have
been jealous of the ascendency lhat the
British had obtained iu tbe affairs of
EgYpt, and while General Kitchner wns
making his way to Omderman, a strategic point ou the river Nile, a French ex-
pedi'ion under Major Marchaud wns
pushing its way from the French possessions in Central Africa, also nn important point on the Nile, the object
being lo provide France witb an outlet
on Hint tiver and bringing thein into
direct contact with Egyptian territory.
This wonld give them a distinct advantage. Within tbe past few mouths
it became evident tbat tbe two expeditions would reach their respective objective points abont the same time, nnd
General Kitchner got to Omdurmaii
only to find that Major Marchaud had
just taken possession uf Fasho.la in tbe
nam* of France with a small force of
men. General Kitchener pushed ou to
Fashoda and claimed it for Egypt.
Major Marchlaud refused to withdraw,
hence the present dispute.
There is a good deal more importance
attaching to tbe controversy than the
mere possession of a small lown on tbe
river Nile. To allow France an outlet
on tbe Nile would be to admit that river
to be common property, whereas Lord
Salisbury insist-, "thut Ihu Nile valley
had belonged and still belongs to Egypt,
and whatever diminition that title hail
suffered by the Muhdi's conquest bad
been removed by the victory at Omdurmaii. "
It is a relief lo know lhat a war between Britain and France is removed
from the sphere ot the immediately
probable. Such an event would be au
awful calamity. There is no knowing
where it would stop- All Europe might
soon be iu a blaze.
BUILDING   IMPROVEMENTS.
New Structures Commenced and Others
Ncarlng Completion.
Only one or two new buildings have
been started during tbe past week, but
those previously under way have been
progressing as fast as workmen could do
lhe work. "Dad" Willis on Monday
commenced the construction of a 20x30
fool building on Uuiick avenue which is
intended for business purposes, and applications have already been filed by
parlies who will either rent or purchase.
Contractor Grier is erecting a dwelling
house ou Ilurwell avenue for Mr. A.
MolVatt, 18x30, two stories" with an addition i^xao,
Mr. ti. ti. Simpson's residence in thc
east end, built by Mr. N. Hanson, is
complete except the painting, which
will be finished this week, or by the
time Mr. S. nnd bride arrive lo take
possession.
Work on tbe Aiken block is being
pushed ahead rapidly and It will be ready
for occupancy by .Saturday night provided glass for the fronts arrive in lime.
This structure will present a fine appear-
nuce when fully finished, nnd ns a revenue getter will be one of the best in
town, having four store rooms on thc
ground Iloor and severnl good-sited
apartments on the second Iloor, all having outside light. Tho board of trade
expect to occupy rooms in this building.
The Mclnnes block, on linker street,
is beginning to assume a finished appearance, workmen now being engaged
in putting iu the front and finishing tbe
walls of the room to be occupied by Mr.
Mclnnes its n retail ment market.
The townsite ollice builditiK is complete except for the inside painting, and
is occupied by Col. Drayton. The exposed side of tbe building fronting the
railroad right of way bears this legend:
"Canadian Pacific Railroad Co., Farm
Lauds Agency, Cranbrook. Lots in all
parts of the city for sale.1'
The Forrest hotel is progressing as
fast as workmen cau push it, the framework for the third or mansard story being up aud ready (or roofing.

SALAD andot
dt DRESSING
All Britishers—iu fact, all Bugltatl-
speaklng people—have a warm place in
their hearts for lhe Prince of Wales.
The prince is the eldest son ol her
majesty and was boru iu 1841, He is
known the world over for his good
nature, tact and love of spoil as well as
his all-round ''good fellowship." Long
life to him.
it it 'it
It then* is one thing more than another
that the people of Craubrook should
pull together for it i-s a recording oflice,
or at least a deputy recording ollice,
Next Spring, unless all signs full, there
will be claims and transfer-, Innumerable
to be recorded in this vicinity and there
ts   no   reason   why   people   should   be
obliged to go to a distant point on the
Kootenay river to record tlicir claluit
and other transactions when it might be
done right here on the railway. All it
wants is "a long pull, a strong pull and
a pull together" to have a recorder, or
at least a dapnty recorder, here.
m   m   m
It is remarkable what a hold upon lhe
imagination of a quartz prospector or individual who has become imbued with
the idea that tbere is a fortune iu store
fur him iu the shape of rock containing
precious metals tbe sight of a strange
piece of rock has. He Imagines he can
see gold silver, copper or lead in every
piece of rock tbat is brought to his notice, and can tell, without an assay, just
how much of each kind of metal the
rock will produce under mill or smelter
reduction; enn tell whether it contains
sulphide, chlorides, oxydes, manganese,
mica or misery. Ex editor ol Thk. Hi.r-
\t,n Wentworth had the disease pretty
bad, but he is uot anywhere near as bad
ofT ns a resident of Cranbrook. This
gentleman is evidently iu the last stages
of the disease called quartz fever, and it
is attacking his braiu. Sitting at the
dinner table a few evenings since, in
company with our quartz expert, the
writer, while waiting to be served, ex*
tracttd from the bottle upon the table a
poor, acid-eaten, sbriveled-up pickle—
very good iu its plnce and when taken iu
large quantities at the right lime. However, we did not crave a large quantity,
and afler taking a small bile laid the remainder of the slice alongside our plate.
Imagine our astonishment a moment or
two after when our friend remarked:
"That is a nice piece of rock; where did
you find it?" at the sune time pointing
to the pickle. It is uot Tim Hkk.u.d's
intention to expose the gentleman's
name, but simply say tint he was great
ly taken aback when he discovered his
mistake.
Hi    la)    m
"I wonder what tbe C. P. R. is going
lodoi"' "I wonder if the townslte people will do this and that?" Such return ks may be heard every day 011 almost
every corner in Cranbrook. We wonder
if it strikes people lhat our salvation
and our success is much more iu our
owu bands than in those of the C. P. R.
and the townsite people? If wc allow
ourselves to sit down and just see what
thc C. P. K. and tbe townsile will do
and do nothing ourselves, we cannot expect to build a city. The C. P. R. and
the townsite are doing their part, and if
we only do our own as well we shall uu
doubledly make a success of this towu of
ours. What are we to do, someone asks,
to help make Craubrook keep her place
as the first city in South K 1st Kootenay?
The answer is simple: Keep everlastingly pegging away; keep constantly before your eyes the fact that if yuu don't
think much of your owu town no one
else will. Uo alt you can to make the
town attractive by being courteous to
strangers, showing them round and
pointing out to them tbe natural resources of the lowu and district. This
is easy to do in Cranbrook, for unlike
some places tbe natural position of our
town, its magnificent site, the open,
level country around it, makes it the
very best poiut for a town in South East
Kootenay aud absolutely the only point
on the Crows Nest Pass railway in East
Kootenay for a ln<*ge city. Another
thing to do is to let your correspondents
in the east aud elsewhere kuow nil you
can about Ibis country nud its resources,
so thet if even they nre not interested
themselves they may tell others. Iu
fact, the secret of success is believing.
If we believe ourselves in the future of
our country then we can make others
believe. Half heartedness is no good ut
nil.   Wc must be all or nothing.
An Apology.
Tlie Canadian Pacific Railway Com-
pauy is responsible for the condition in
which Tiik IIkhai.d is printed this
week. Although shipped from Winnipeg three weeks ago, our "patent
In'ards*- bad not arrived up to last night
and in consequence the publishers had
to fall bad: on some sheets that were
printed during the Spanish-American
war. Some of the reading matter js a
little stale, but much of it is instructive
if not entertaining. In fact, (he writer
is not sure but it will prove more acceptable to the readers of the paper than if
the space had been filled by the tiresome
slush dishsd up iu these columns for the
past three weeks—barring, of course,
those items of news which have been
furnished by accommodating friends.
Anyhow, an apology is due, and as the
railroad compauy is not engaged in that
line of busiuess it falls upon us to make
it. However, it is to be hoped that when
thc operating depaitment of the road
assumes control of traffic it will be able
to deliver goods to shippers in less than
three weeks from Winnipeg.

Cranbrook People Investing in tlie New
Town.
Several parties living in Cranbrook
have during the past week made investments iu the new town nf Moyie, plats
of which have been prepared in advance
ofthe survey and are iu the hands of
Col Bray tot), who is handling tbe properly. James Ryan, of the Cranbrook
hotel, has purchased lot-, 1 and 2 iu block
15. and Win. Frith aud James Black,
alio of Cranbrook, have taken a lot each
in tbe same block. Malcolm .Mclnnes,
the gentleman who supplies East Kootenay with nearly all the fresli meat that is
eaten, has purchased lots 9 and 10 in
block 15, and will occupy the property
with a building fur bis bus ness.
C. I. R. Agent Milliard, of Calgary,
now owns lots 11 and 12 In block l, John
Donald Iota 9 and to in block 4, nud
Richard Daly lot R block 1. These
latter-named gentlemen are mechanics
connected with the C. N. I', anil will
likely erect residences.
The hotel which is to be put up by a
syndicate will be built on lots 7. 8, 9 and
10, block 14 Two blocks* have been reserved for the government.
I   ECHOES OF THE RAIL.   I
The C. I'. R. will open a dining hall at
the station lioie. It is said that .Mr.
Leonard, late of Superintendent Whyte's
dining car, will be iu charge.
It is rumored that Assistant Superintendent of Construction Turnbull will
be made divisional superintendent of the
Crows Neat branch, with headquarters
at Craubrook, wben thc road is taken
over on the 15th inst.
Word has gone out from construction
; eadquatters that the C. N, P. road will
pass into the bunds of lhe operating department on Tuesday, the 15th inst.
In consequence there are many employes
here and elsewhere along the liue who
are on the anxious seal, none knowing
where the axe may fall.
M. J. Haney and Engiueei Macleod
passed through Ctaubrook west bound
on Friday night last, returning on Saturday night. The parly made no stay
here either going or coming. It is un
derslood. however, that this is Manager
Ilaney's last trip over the road preparatory to   its   being   turned  over to Ihe
operating department on the 15th Inst,
The term innl work at lhe lake has been
completed in so far as the construction
department has to do with it, and was
accepted. Mr. Haney is reported to
have snid that the company desired him
to continue iu charge of construction until tlie road was completed to Nelson,
but he declined.
A passenger who arrived iu Cranbrook
Sunday night from the east gave Thi-.
HanAi.D some information in regard tc
the obstruction of travel for several days
last week on the C. N. P. road- He
slaleil that at what is known as tbe
"loop" a slide had occurred covering the
track for 60 feet in length and io a depth
of two to eight feet. The track cuts
through the mountain side, aud where
the slide occurred tbere is a deep cut,
the bank on the lower side ofthe mountain being some 15 feet high, To remove the rock and earth from tbe cut
work could be prosecuted from each end
only, or by the slow method ot hand
shoveling, one mm raising the dirt to
another man above hint and soon till
the top of the cut was reached. The
laborers were all tired and completely
worn out, nnd the work progressed very
slowly. According to Thk HBrax.d'3
iu form ant it took ou au average just one
minute by the watch for a shovelful! of
dirt to go from the track or slide over
ihe top of the cut. The work from tbe
ends was nearly as tedious, being done
with wheelbarrows. It was finally accomplished, however, aud the train
managed lo get through. Il was ex>
peeled that a pilcdriver would com. neuce
putting dowu piles at the obstruction on
Monday.
Presbyterian Church.
The contract has been let for the
building of the Presbyterian church and
a pile of lumber may be seen on Armstrong avenue,   corner of Louis street,
preparatory to commencing operations
nn the structure. Before another issue
of this paper appears it is expected that
Mr. Grant, tbe contractor, will have the
building iti such shape that no doubt
will be entertained at to the use to be
made of it. Let nil who nre interested
hand in their subscriptions to Mr. George
Bremner, the secretary-treasurer, right
away. About #150 more are needed before the lime for opening the church is
at hand.

A letter reached Tint Hi.l.At,n office
this week from Editor Simpson, written
and dialled at Omaha, Neb., on October
a8th, containing the Information that he
expected to leave for Cripple Creek,
Cotarado, that night nud would be married at lhe home of the bride's sister in
lhat city on Wednesday, November 9U1.
Therefore, if there has been no "slip
'twixt the cup and the lip" Mr. IMC.
Simpson and .Miss Kate Phelps have
been made one. and are now doubtless
journeying toward their future home,

Like Doctor Faiistus, the American
people, until recently, worshiped tho
Idea of youth. The young man was in
demand, and the young woman was Irresistible. The young gave the dominating tone io society. The son managed the father, tin- daughter controlled
the mothor. This reversal of usual
relations was regarded ns a distinct
and commcndablo American practice,
aud excited comment and censure from
the rest of the world. Meanwhile,
nlowly but surely, common souse and
travel wero modifying the conditions,
Society saw that abroad, especially lu
England, age, not youth, per so, counted. It perceived that a man In England, or Europe, was about to really
commence his career at the time he was
compelled to abandon it hero, It noted
thai iho mother, and sometimes even
the grandmother, was kept in evidence.
And It hum  that this was possible be
cause middle age ond old nge were distinctly recognised as separate nnd important periods of ex 1st lug,    lu ilmo
these truths Struck home, and the tide
has turned, or at least is turning. The
prejudice for mere youth dies bard, but
It Is dying. We may even soe tho day
when middle ago, with Its experiences,
and old age. with lis freedom from pre-
indices, will be even more highly appreciated In New York than lu London,
and American society will be young,
not for a fow years only, bul as long as
the body is healthful, the mlml Is active and the spirit ambitious.
It has been said that the loss of life
ami property by war Is a leaser evil
than the attondanl or resultant damage
done to the quality of a whole people's
life by mental and moral distraction.
.V popular war excitement is like "a
houso afire." it is no small calamity
thut tho orderly life of millions of poo-
pie should bo interrupted; that thought
und feeling should be turned away -from
ordinary business, common duly und
the gentle methods of culture; lhat the
aimless expenditure of nervous energy
and tho rush or hlood to the head
should cause an epidemic of moral Insanity, Whatever happens or does uot
happen, our people Bhould keep cool iu
these eventful war days. To the soldier, simple self-pOSBCSBlOU Is the bettor part of courage and of discipline.
So It should be with that great mass
of our people who, In time of war as lu
time of peace, constitute the homo
guard of American civilisation. Firm,
soldierly qualities an* everywhere iu
demand, ll' wo keep all our wits about
us, wo shall ho none too well furnished

bo Interrupted.
A report to the Slate Department
from Consul General Gooduow at
Shanghai brings some Interesting facts
as lo ihe manufacture and trade In that
peculiarly Chinese pest, the llrecracker.
During the year ending '111111' B0, 1807,
there were exported from China 'Jii,-
700,738 pounds of them, rnluctl at ?l,-
584,181 In gold, and of tbo total shipment by far iho largest part came to
this country, A small quuutlty went to
England atul Infinitesimal amounts to
other countries, from which it would
pppenr that In the matter of noise und
nuisance the United States has not advanced beyond tho standard of China.
The amount exported does not begin
to represent the extent of tho Industry,
as millions of them an- made iu shops
and small houses, and four-fifths of tlio
crackers consumed In China are made
hy the families of those who soil them,
these people of courso receiving no
wages. Crackermnklng is about tbe
cheapest form of industry, from every
point of view. At Canton tho ordinary
slz<* cracker costs 1 taet [02 cents) for
10,1X10 for export. The hours of labor
are from It a. in. to 11 p. in., and then-
are seven working days in a week.
Thirty women and ton men can make
100,000 craekers a day, for which work
tbe women, receive five and the men
about seven cents each. All expert at
tho trade cannot got mure than ton
cents, which Is aboul tho average ralo
of wages paid in China for common labor. The most alarming feature of
Consul Gooduow's report Is tho fact
that the giant cracker may bo re-enforced in the near future by a now product of Chinese skill known hh lhe
"twice sounding."

Derivation of the   Wnnl   Klondike.
"Tho Itiver Trip to lhe Klondike" is
tho title of an arlh-le by John Sidney
Webb lu the Century.   .Mr. Webb says;
"From Dawson the trail to the mines
leads ovor a steep hill to the crook
made bo famous by Its tributaries; for
there is uot a single mine on the principal stream, which lu the minors'
slang Is called Klondike. And yet this
stream does ln reality boar a characteristic name given It by the Indians,
whleh Is utterly murdered by this
pronunciation, now so common.
"Tlie Indians name tho creeks
throughout the country from some
characteristic lu connection with tbo
stream Itself; and as this one Is so
swift that lu order to set their salmon-
traps or nets thoy were obliged to use
a hammer to drive the stakes to anchor thom, tho crook was named by
them Hammer Crook, or, In their language, phonetically, Troan Dik. Tlm
spelling Klondike means absolutely
nothing, but has been accepted, so I
loam, by the Board of Geographical
Names of the United Slates."

HIS START IN LIFE.
Ills Desire to Accummoiliite a Cnsttim-
er Brought Ahnut Hit* Sut.-t.e-4n.
The Philadelphia Times prints nn In-
teresttug and encouraging account of
iho manner lu whleh Mr. McLaughlin,
•iho lute publisher of that paper, gained
ids Ilrst upward Btart iu the world. He
was thon employed in the prlntlng-
>ttiee of tho Ledger, Young renders
may find In the narrative something
Hotter than a good story.
Vpou ouo occnslou In 1801, when
Prank McLaughlin was twenty-three
years of ago, It happened that tho foreman and his assistant were absent, nnd
hat John McLaughlin was at homo Ul.
Young Frank McLaughlin was then
the fastest setter of type in Iho office.
At the dinner hour on the dny lu
.piestion, when ovory "slick" wus lying
it rest, Abraham Barker, the father of
tho well-known Wharton Barker, and
himself then one of the very few
brokers lu this city, walked Into tho
Lodger job prlnllng-otllce with u Stock-
list— au enumeration of the flguroH of
ihe fiuanclnl market of lhe dny-and
ixpressed a desire to have It put lu
type and fifty copies struck off for Immediate use.
Ily reason of ibe conditions described,
there wns no one In authority to wait
upon hlin, mnl Frank . McLaughlin
stepped forward and received tho order, Tho StOck-llSt of thnt time, unlike
tlie complex affair of the present day,
was uu abbreviated slateiiieiil, and two
men could easily place It lu type within
:i quarter of an hour.
When Mr. Baker asked the young
printer if ho would undertake iho task,
die latter answered with cheerful nine-
I'lty, "Certainly." Cutting tho list In
two and turning to one of the oldest
compositors in tho ottlee, ho said,
"Here", .llm, lake ono of these 'takes'
and I'll tnko the other, and we'll rush
Iter through In a Jiffy."
Tho man addressed walked forward
with a frown on his face, aud after he
hud taken tho slip of paper and was
moving back to his case, he inutetred
some half-understood words about
"giving a fellow a chance to eat his
lliiuer."
"Nover mind, .llm," said young McLaughlin, walking quickly after him
ind taking the copy from his hands,
"I'll do the Job myself." Inirlng these
proceedings Abraham Barker never left
the ottlee, nor did he do so until the
work had boon completed. He loaned
quietly against a makeup table, reading a copy of the .New York Tribune,
apparently oblivious to all that was
going on nbout him.
Young McLaughlin's lingers flow ns
lie picked up tho littlo pieces of metal, j
In loss than half au hour he had the
■•look-list lu typo, revised, aud fifty
copies struck oil'. Ho handed them to
Mr. Barker with an apology for keeping hlin waiting. "What! Done already?" said lhe broker, and with a i
!lmple "Thank you:" ho left the office.
The following morning the young
printer was surprised by receiving a
note from the customer of tho day before, requesting him to call ut his oflice.   Ho did so.
"1 heard everything that took place
in the Lodger oflice yesterday," said
ihe financier, "nnd fully approclate
your conduct, I would liko you to
print the stock-list  for me ovory day
for one month, nnd I'll pay you live
hundred dollars for the work."
"Bnt It is not worth bo much ns
that,'1 answered lhe printer.
"It Is worth us much to me to hnvo
It done as you did lt yesterday," was
lhe reply.
That was Frank McLaughlin's flrst
work for himself. At the expiration
if tbo month the contract wns extended to threo times that period, and then
lo twelve months, with an annual re-
■otnponse of six thousand dollars. At
that time Journeymen printers wore
receiving about ten dollars weekly, and
only in extraordinary instances earned
una or two dollars beyond that sum.
THE "PROUD" SPANIARD.
A   Former  Capta'n  General   of Cuba
that Won Not Over-NeriipiiloiiN.
As the question of Spanish goud
faith is prominent In the press those
days, this pertinent anecdote of the
civil war will be timely. It Is told In
Bullock's Secret Sendee of the Confederate States. Capt. Bullook tolls of the
exciting Incidents concerning the freeing of the rebel ram Stonewall from
the international complications attendant on her release from tho French
shipyard where she was built; how shu
was watched by the ugonts of tho Fed-
oral Government; how she was followed to Denmark, whither she wont
under tho Danish flag; huw sho was
again followed to Ferrol, Spain, by the
I'nlted Slates ships Niagara and Sacramento; how she eluded thom Ihere and
sailed fnr tho coast of the United Slates
wiih (ho evident Intent of attacking Die
Federal ships, for any one of which
she was more than a match, being
then llio most formidable ironclad
a final.
But when the Stonewall, under Iho
command of Gupt. Pago, reached Havana In May. 18(13, Page learned of Ihu
surrender of Clen. Lee, nnd BOOU after
of llio capture of Jefferson Davis.
Pug-b'n funds were exhausted. The
Confederacy had collapsed. Tlle position was perplexing. Capt. Pago opened negotiations with the Spanish authorities ut Havana for ilie surrender
of llio ship to thom If thoy would advance the money lo pay nil' the crew,
Capt. I'ago sent Lieut. Carter to lhe
captain gouoral lo mako the arrange
monts. Carter reported that after live
minutes' conversation iho onptulu general askod him what sum was required.
Carter replied, f>10,000, The captain
general said: "You bad better make It
?luo,(HH)." Carter replied that bis orders wero to ask .fKuiHi. Tho captain
general then turned to an ofllolai and
bade hlm write a document, and thon,
turning again to Carter, said: "Shall
wo nut make It $50,000?" But Carter
obeyed orders and accepted only $iu,-
t ii in.
It Is quite evident that this high official, the captain general of Cuba, was
attempting to get the Confederate
naval officer to ask for $UHt,(HH) to pay
off his crew, when ho needed only jjld,-
000, the difference lo be divided between thom. When the Confederate officer absolutely refused to accept either
Jtbo.fUM) or $50,000, but only tho exact
stun needed, ft is evident that the captain general concluded that the American was a fool, aud charged up $l<>0.-
teio to the Spanish Government and
put $S4,uiH> In his pocket. This throws
a strong light uu Spanish financial
honor.

John Sidney Webb, appears In the Con-

clean-up on Ids claim—snid to be JIKl,-

know of MnediMinld's speculations, and
ill were wondering whether he would
become a bankrupt or a uiultlmllllon-

early lu 1807, and ln some Instances
iho clean-ups on the claims ho had
bought on speculation on uie so closo to

goes, the gold was paid over "before It

riser Hint the next day's labors demand-
■d. Thus it was, perhaps, that he did
uot notice the shadows Hint deepened
in her eyes. At Ilrst, with n little encouragement, she would have told him
11 and cried it out on his shoulder, ami,
perhaps,    together   they   might    have
learned the lessoit of endurance. But
now her henrt had crusted over and
hid beneath its surface her sorrow. Suffering, doubt, grew tu noxious luxurl-
nnce In her soul's garden and threatened tO choke out timid love. For this
she blamed hlm. She snid. over uud
over to herself, (hut he did nut care,
uud then, out of loyalty to hlm. denied

admitted the truth or ihe accusation.
Finally she hud told it lo the dog uml

lhe pleadings or her soul; sho would
leave hint. She would go home, buck
In noise ami bustle and life; buck to
frieuds ami volcoful companionship.
Strengthened wlih sudden resolution,
she sprung lo her feet ami looked ul the
clock. There wus (hue to nil Hi the
down train, She hud money of her
own, the remains uf her spinster Havings. She would lake the pony and
leave at lhe post ollice 0 note that would
explain the story of It all to .luck. With
nervous lingers she set ubout tidying
the room. When Ihls task was finished
she placed upon the table Jack's luncheon, nutiug with a tender smile some
of the things she had brought with ber
und whlcli she was about to leave—tho
dainty tea urn, the sugar and cream
holders that .lack had laughed at for
their smullness, the cup with a broken
handle thut was reserved for him because of Its size nnd solidity. When
the table was set she covered It with a
pink net. am) turned to lay out her
pretty traveling dress thut sbe bud
worn but once before.
The train pulled in with a rattle and
clang of brakes nnd she climbed aboard
and saw the house fade out of sight behind her. Presently, with a shock of
recollection, she sat up nnd pressed her
face to the pane. Tlm tralu was pnss-
lug through their farm. The low, sod
barn, the house with blinds pulled
down, and Prince, the dog, running
ufter the train and finally ceasing, sat-
16fled with having chased lt off the
premises. At last there was Jack In the
hay field] he waved his hat gayly aud
the horses looked backward over their
shoulders ut their flying rival. With a
frightened gasp Annette shrank Iuto
the cushions. A flood of sickening an-
gulsh engulfed her. For the tlrst time
the full realization that Bhe was forsaking her husband crowded upon her.
She forgot the dreariness of the prairie,
the emptiness of its landscape, the
acres of solitude; she forgot her desolation and suffering. The vision of the
empty home smote her. The words of
Jack's last good-by sounded In her
ears; the presence of his kiss was upon
her lips.
She slowly straightened herself in
her seat and brushed her face us If to
drive away tlie sight of it. Then a new-
look enme Into her eyes; n holy lire suffused her countenance, such as might
have shone In the eyes of the Christian
maiden and Idol ted out fear of the
beast.
Yes, she would return! It was not
too lato, She could lake the next train

should never read tt—should uever

The sun was sinking low Into the
western horizon when she came again
to llie lown, and Its golden light glorl-
11 ed the tall, red turreted elevators und
softened the oiilllnes of Ihe gaiiiK
frame building* until they looked no
longer hateful   to  her.    She  hastened
ucross the sandy rond to ilu- postoffice
wlih almost a light heart.
"Yon setit the letter out to my husband '!" she cried sharply.
A numbing fear took possession of
her. ll wus. then, nfter all, loo lute.
Already he had read the lines, and
kuew of herunwifeiy Intentions, Could
be ever love her--now? And in her
desolation the need of hh love, above
all things, grow apparent.
However, ll should make no change
In her resolve. Duly still pointed out
the road. Wourlly, regretfully must
she take up lhe dropped stitch of life;
perhaps, sometime, she could live It
dowu.
The misery or the hoinewnrd ride she
cuu never forget. She shut her (eeth
lu firm resolve uud Clung desperately
to Ihe pony, while he (lew over lhe
road; all the while lhe dull thuds of
his footsteps lOUUded In her ems like
Coffin Hods.
She seemed to see In her mind's eye
Jack's surprised greeting, his calm,
cold, CUltlOg words, ihuti which she
would ru I her face deulli, Hhe sobbed,
weakly, ovor uml over.
Then, from tbe crest of the rise, the
house came in view. The picketed
horses enme trotting toward her to tbo
length of (heir ropes, with many au
arch of the back ami friendly neigh of
recognition for their comrade. Prince
came running down the road, frantic
with welcome, nml Jack eame to the
door with a skillet lu bis hand.
"Supper Is ready," he cried gayly,
coming to lift her tenderly from the
saddle.
Whnt—what, she cried to herself, dizzily, could It be he had never received
the letter. Then she fainted In his
arms.
When she revived she clung to hlm
and looked earnestly in his eyes; hope
leaped In her bosom. There was no
cloud on his brow; he did uot know,
Wheu Ihe dishes were cleared away
they took their chairs Iuto the front
yard. The moon wus rising lu sleepy-
eyed splendor.
"I have something to tell you," he
snid, drawing close to her. "Good
news," be added hastily, alarmed by
the look on her face. "I sold the farm
to-duy. The Illinois mnn bought it,
paid every dollar lu cash, aud I have It
here, and, best of all, thc letter that
camo this afternoon"—»he caught her
breath—"wus from tbe Journal. Briggs

[e silenced her with n wave of his
bund. "I knew," lie continued, "that

and It nearly killed me.   I blamed my-
■ir for bringing you to such a place,
and—but—wait nil I g< i my pipe—"
A moment Inter she beardJilin knocking ubout In the house. Then she noticed Prince digging In the dirt and
caught the flutter of something white.
"Bring it here, sir!" she cried, sternly.
When he had brought It, with reluctant step uud downcast demeanor, she
saw It to be a letter—her owu letter to
Jack—lhe hateful letter, crumpled and
earth-stained, but—unopened, with a
ery of joy she seized the dog In her
arms and kissed his earthy nose. She
ceased her demonstrations a moment
to answer Jack's voice from the doorway.
"Oh, lu that package!" she replied.
"Why. cigars. I bought them for you
to-day—the biggest ones I could And."
"I'm, um," said Jack, sniffing at them
suspiciously; "they ure nice. I will save
them for Sunday."
When he hiul lighted his pipe and taken a few eat Is tied puffs, he remarked:
"Copley said he left two letters for me

SPEED OF THE HORSE.
A   Claim   That   He   Cuu   Outrun   the
Deer.
A man on a horse Is twice a man.
lie feels more secure. Is braver, Is lu
every way more formidable. European
officers know Mils. In clearing the
streets of Paris only cavalry are used.
We call out the Infantry or the militia
nud have to shoot people, lu Europe
they use the**flat of a sword held by a
mounted man. .No Unarmed body of
humanity will stand the Impact of
horses. They melt before the charge
like snow. It Is the uncontrollable Instinct to get out of the way. and to do
It ns soon as possible. Some day we
will grow wiser on this side of the Atlantic. Just now we have fifty infantry
companies of militia to one of cavalry.
Many of our militiamen are unable to
pay for tbe keep of a horse, which Is
offensive, even if a man does the currying aud bedding with Is owu hands.
Many others of them would not know
what to do with a horse If they had
one. This Is bad, but with the trolley
nud the bicycle crowding the steed of
our fathers closer and closer to the wall
thero Is not much chance that it will
be bettered. Five hundred years from
now, unless all signs fall, gray-headed
college professors, with piano-leg calves
and elghteen-lnch chests, will be lecturing upon an extinct animal and reconstructing him for the benefit of students from a piece of stifle and a front
tooth.
I believe that the horse is the swiftest animal lu the world. Oiie hears
strange tales of the speed of the antelope, the white-tolled finvu, the springbok, the elephant, the jack-rabbit and
the wolf. The fastest of these Is the
American antelope, am) 1 have never
seen one that a goud pony could hot
best. As for the rabbit or any kind of
deer, fhe horse will simply run over
bim. Taking Inlo consideration the
fact that the horse generally carries
more than 150 pounds of rider, saddle
nnd gun. one gets an idea of how much
superior he is. A speedy pony will outrun a greyhound, I have seen this
tried. It Is CUStomat? among men who
