am in a belter posiiinn than any person
to give tbe facis.

Lilly May, slaked in 1888 In June, 1890
Oliver Bordeau and Joe Morris went
from Nelson to the Lilly May to perform
tbe annual work required With tbem
was Joe Bourgeois, whose obj ct wa' 10
look up the-cbance for marten trapping
anil incidentally to prospect. I do not
think that Mr. Bourgeois ever did a
day's work for wages in his life. His
waa a unique character and a few particulars regarding bim may be of interest, lie put in the earlier part of his
lite as a free trapper aad kuew every
trading post from Quebec to the Eraser
river. Soon after be came to British
Columbia, about 1865, he commenced
placer mining, and with tbe exception
of an occas'onal trapping trip, he followed tbat occupation with varying success
until 1890.
My Brat acquaintance with him whs In
the spring of 1889 at Nelson. He spent
about four moulha that fall pocketing
and rocking on Forty Nine creek and
did not do so badly, for 1 bought from
him 17 cunces of gold at SiS per ounce,
He waa naturally observmt and had a
tenacious memory. These traits gave
him the greater part of tbe nice little
competency wltb which bis mining
career ended, While ou one of bis
placer hunting trips in Bast Kootenay
be rati across a large cropping of sume
kind of mineral and after be lnul acquired some knowledge ot minerals und
lode milting he 15 years afterward went
back and located lhe N >rih Star, u well
known silver-lead properly in Kust
Kootenay. Joe. though ratber inclined
to be frugal, would open bis purse
strings occasionally aud treat the buys.
Tbey had lo drink though, lor ll one
clied tor cigar he would say in his
quaint French accent: '"I buy tobacco
lor no mans."
Uourgeois cleaned up from liis Rossland and Hast Kootenay properties prob
ably about 135,000, which was pretty
well for a matt who bad never driven n
stake on n lode claim until he came to
Trail creek.
Joe Went to the Territories anil acquired a large tract of land, bought himself
1 fast u-ntii and tiiartied a young wife.
The horses were too fist,for shortly after
they tan away, breaking his arm, s- me
ribs antl bruited him up generally. He
recovered, though, and ai lust accounts

While Mortis atld Ilnrdesu worked at
tbe Lilly May, Bourgeois, tramping
around tbe country, (omul tbe large
croppifigson Red mountain. He indue
ed Morris to go over, aud they located
four claims, thk War Hagle, tbe Centre
Star, the Idaho aud the Virginia. At
the time there was uo limit aa to the
number rf claims one might locate, but
under the United Slates law you could
have but one location on the same vein.
In 189*3 lhe law waa changed so that a
person could locate but two claims In a
After a few days of prospecting the
two returned to Nelson, and before

was the only assay taken at the time,
and of this I am positive, for I was quite
Intimate wltb Mr. Kllis, the assayer,
who was afterward appointed provincial
mineralogls', but wbo died before taking
c.large ol tbe office. With Bourgeois
content, I had-the pulp run through,
with practically tke same result. Considering the lack of transportation and
the supposed refractory condition of the
ore, both of thc locators were discouraged, but after a talk with me they

agreed to come down three days later
and sample the properties.
Tbey had put one stake on a claim to
the West of the Center Star—an initial
post—and called it the Louise. Bourgeois made the proposition to uu* thai

Colonel Peyton states thut there was

that I hud lo go 10 Nelson in midwinter

as tbe mine was never attached or In the

it is called the Peyton tiinnel today.
The Spokane owners encountered
many il tlicullies and einbatrussmenls in
making this mine ami several times
they were near the limit ol their endurance, but their preseverance achieved
success und they fully deserve lhe prosperity lhat ciuue tu I hem. Il Is haul to

the strongest factors in making lhe

Morrlssey, IV C. Jar.. ».—By Herald
Special Correspondent —The Pioneer
hotel lu Morrissey, owned by H, A.
Uunmise of Pernie, und under lease by
Andrew Johnston, was completely destroyed hy fire at 11 o'clock Saturday
night, and one life is known to have
been lost in (be fljliiea.
The fire originated in the ban00m ot
lhe hotel, and was caused hy a large
Rocbeslei lamp being knocked from its
hangings timing n friendly tussle among
a crowd uf miners from the Morrlssey
mines, livery cfT-jrt was made by the
bartender, Cole Sedgwick, to smother
(he 11,ones when the lump hrst dropped
bin in lhe excitement of the moment
some party kicked the lamp toward tbe
dour, and before those present fully
realized (he danger the ii nines commuu-
icnled nUb the wall paper and Ihe room
was a seething mass of fue. Mr. Johnston, the proprietor, had just stepped out
of the bar and reached the top of the
stairs on (he second ll >-u when be heard
lhe cry of tire, and hastily going down
again met the mimes In the hallway.
Mo lushed hack upstairs and gave the
alarm to the women employed in the
place, who had lu lunaleiy not retired
lor the night, mid with the assistance ot
one or two men they were safely got
out. So quickly did lhe flames spread
from the barroom to the other portions
of the building that in less than five
mi miles from the time Ihe lamp diopped
the entire place was enveloped and al
though il was known that at least one
uiuti wus in the building it would buve
been suicidal for any ooe of tbe large
cowd wbo responded at tbe first alarm
10 have attempted au entrance into tbe
building, ami they were compelled lo
stand by in spee.hless horror while
death in its most repulsive form was
claiming a victim.
Within twenty minutes from the time
the alarm was given the building, one
of the largest in town, was burned to
the ground, and the citizens were anx-
loUsly enquiring for those known to
ha\e Leen in tbe house, Tbe only victim who was positively known to have
perished was Herbert Marriott, a young
man who until two days previous 10 the
fire was employed as dishwasher at the
Australian hotel, but had quit his post
tion tbere and at the time of tbe fire waa
asleep in the Pioneer. He had come to
Morrissey about two montos ago from
Phoenix, and was known to tne old time
residents of Wurdner, where he formerly worked In the same capacity at tbe
Wurdner house. He was a native of
Ontario, where a father and one sister
mm reside. It is the general opinion
Ibal tit least one aud possibly two others met death in the ll nuts, as evidence
given would Lend to the belief that tbere
were one or iwo men ln an intoxicated
condition around the premises, although
Mr, Johnston says that to his knowledge
uo others were iu the rooms upstairs,
Willi, tbe exception ol Marriott, who
had retired about eight o'clock a little
ibe worse for liquor. Several parties
who had visited the scene of tbe fiie
later in the night say tbey distinctly
saw tbe skull of 11 man In a different
portion ol tbe budding from where Mar-
riot's remains were found but search af-
tet ibe debris bad cooled (failed to sub-
stinitiate Uie report.
The coroner, Mr. Trites, at Fernie,
wan notified while the fire was ia progress and Monday he arrived iu company
with Chief Forbes and Constable Mc-
Mttllen. A jury was at once impanneled
and several witnesses gave evidence,
which, however,waa of such a conflicting
nature that no conclusion could be arrived at. Owing to the absence of important witnesses the inquest was postponed until Tuesday, the 27th, when it
will again be convened.
Marriott's charred remains were identified by several articles known to have
belonged to bim, and luneral services
were held Tuesday afternoon.
The Pioneer was lhe lirst hotel built
in .Morrissey, and wiih ils contents was
valued at about fi 500, partially covered by Insurance.
Review   ul   Years   Work  of   ihe Caaadlaa
Bank of Commerce.
The Canadian Hank of Commerce is
oue of the strongest financial institutions iti Camula, and for that mailer
upon tbe American continent. Recently the annual meeting of the bank Mas
Held In Toronto, and an exhaustive report presented hy Mr- K li. Walker,
tbe general manager, tbat should be
read by evety one Interested in tbfe
material prosperity of British Columbia
and Canada as a whole. The Turonto
(ih.be, commenting upou tbe report,
The head of a grist financial institution like the Bank ef Commerce is generally too deeply immersed in the immediate duties of his position to saw
business affairs tn the broader light of
the economist. But Mr. Walker Is a
student of fiscal, commercial and industrial a Huns from the standpoint vf the
economist as well as of the banker, and
his address at the annual meeting not
only sets forth the general condition of
trade and productive industry throughout the Domiuion, but gives a clear
idea of the hearings and relationships
ofthe forces lhat make for general prosperity. The banker is best able to guage
the preseut ami prospective financial
strength of every line of commerce. Ou
the soundness of his Judgment In such
nutters depends his success, and the
continuous investigations and inquiries
be is called upou to make keep htm constantly Informed us tu shifting trade
currents and the causes of expansion
and depreislon, Mr, Walker's declaration that the basts of our largely in
creased trade Is sound should bave a
reassuring effect on ull who have felt
anxiety at tbe unusually rapid development dining recent years.
The delicate question of joint stock
flotations is touched, and a bint given
as to the possibility of extensive flotations using up all tbe supply of money
available to cairy the shares. There Is
a suggestion of the lean years certain to
come, however long delayed, and a note
of warning as to Ihe ability of the
country to sustain some of tbe extensive
industiies established on the basis ofthe
country's p.esent cousunilng power.
In the more minute review ofthe different sections of the Dominion there is
much valuable luformalion, and the
general trend of the facts presented is in
the direction of an assurance of continuous sound conditions so long as the
yield from the farms, lhe forests and tbe
mines are well sustained. The financial
report of ibe directors whs eminently
satisfactory. The profits for the year
exceeded a million dollars, and, with
tbe balance brought torward from last
year, was sufficient lo pay two half-
yearly dividends at 7 per cent, per annum anil transfer an evt-n half million
to the rest account- In addition to
this, a balance of 810.2,S:>i has been
canied forward to the next year. Tha
bank bas opened during the year no
less than fifteen new branches, while
one In Ros^laud, B.C ■ has been closed.
This shows a determination to keep
pace with tbe general business of thi
community aod to share in the benefl l
of an era of expansion.

Claim They Were Defrauded.
Denver, Jan. 12—Through Attomej
Harry II. Lee the Stratton Independence company, limited, today filed in
tbe United States court a suit for j-6,-
000,000 against the executors and
trustees of tbe Stratton estate, and also
against I. Harry Stratton, heir at law.
The complaints alleges that at the
time the mine was sampled, preparatory
to concluding the sale, which bad been
negotiated through the Venture Corporation of London, the samples were
"Salted" so tbat the amount of ore estimated on those samp'es was valued at
•7,000,0 o, when in reality the ore in
sight was worth only $2,000,000, or less,
It Is alleged that the sucks of samples
were opened and quickly but thoroughly
sprinkled with rich,ground up silvanite.
The Venture corporation will also
bring a similar suit, claiming that its
expert, C. A. Rickard, was deceived by
the sailed ore, aad tbe individual stockholders wilt bring actions for the return
of their money, alleging that they were
induced to purchase stock at f> $10 and
$!'•, when in reality it was not worth
such prices.

hud been sent lo York House by tho

Culture of a certain kind as well
as Invlgoration and Improvement,
goes, as was said before, with all
hit-.li knowledge. Culture In the
sense of taste, goes with literary
Studies only. Tho student of Practical .Science ut ihu university has
lhe opportunity of coupling with it
SOine literary studies, at all events
he breathes a liberal uir. Hn may
to Mime extent imbibe the literary1
spirit and acquire u liking for general reading. He hus stimulating
companionship and he may form useful friendships.
In England, thoro is a large lelsurt
class, larger than In America, Aca-1
domical institutions, like Institutional
generally, must adapt themselves to
the general demand.
The classics seem  under u free system of choice to he finding their proper   place.    They urn worth nothing
to any but tlie genuine student, while
to Uie genuine student   they are     of,
great   value.     The   smattering   acquired by the mass of the students at j
Oxford  and   Cambridge     under      the
compulsory classics system, was   totally worthless.   To the contents   of i

Twice the bugler had warned those
going ashore that their time was short,
and the etowd on the Upper deck of
the Kaiser Wilhelin bad thinned per*
ceptlbly. The port rail wus lined with
passengers provided with Hags and gay
hued handkerchiefs for waving faro*
well tu their friends who thronged the
end ut' the pier,
Vet amidships, at the head of the
companion-way, a group of men still
Clustered round Enid Ash burton and
her aunt. Miss Winter. Miss Ashbur-
ton had come Up from the southland
eight mouths prevK hud taken
the northern city by storm,   Attentions
IMng-pong  bulls are uiiulu uf xyle-
ftit-/,   „
sufficient to turn any girl's bend had
been showered upon her, but Miss Win- I
ter had guarded her with Jealous care.
Particularly hud she warded off eager '
Sllil ui'S.
"Walt, Enid, my dear," Bhe had said ;
in warning tones, "until we've been
a I m uid ut least once.   See more of life ■
—nnd men.   Don't establish an Ideal
too quickly."
Enid bad dutifully tnken the advice
to heart, showing favor to no one of
her numerous ndmlrersj so lt happened
that uo less than a dozen were waiting
j'nr n last word.   Kach cursed his fel- I
lows, the bugler antl the light hearted
throng.   Each, hoping for n chance fur ■
the lust tender word which Bliould be '
cherished us the real farewell across
the ocean's leagues, was unwilling to
move uud leave the Held to another.
The situation wus rapidly becoming '
tense when Harry Bronson set the example and with a  few well chosen
winds took himself off, the bend of u
mournful procession.
Just ti hint of a frown appeared on
Enid's brow as he bent hi perfunctory
fashion over her hand. Harry noted
the frown with a smile of triumph. As
he descended the stairs he looked anything but desolate. His jaunty carriage so increased the frown on Miss
Ashburton's fiice that little Freddy
Henderson wondered what there bad
been lit his own blundering, harmless
speech to anger her.
They wero gone nt last, and, lennlng
over the railing, Enid scanned the
faces gazing up from the pier. There
were Henderson, Smythe, Cullon, Dunbar and the rest, but no sign of Bronson. Doubtless he wns half way to bis
ollice by this time, wrapped up In stock
reports and utterly unmindful that the
Kniser Wilhelm wns hended for the
harbor, Vet of oil her admirers during the season he had been the most
devoted, and It had required nil her
finesse to prevent his making the
dreaded declaration. Many times he
had found his best maneuvers flunked
by the sudden appearance of the kin
dorgnrtcu-aa he contemptuously termed
the younger lads who worshiped Knid
and who In return were utilized by the
girl to ward off older and more a^rlotis
buI tors. '
The crowd on deck became silent as
the city line grew vague, Some were
quietly crying. Euld herself felt a
suspicious moisture iu her eye. A deep
flush mounted to her temples. Her
aunt, every one In the party, must
know that she cared nothing for New
Vork, Uf course they would guess the
truth. She turned abruptly and
Stepped Into the deserted library,
lu the farthest corner, safe from prying eyes, stood a tiny desk. She
(.Tossed her arms upon It, her bead
drooped lower and lower, and the tears
enmo unchecked, Not since the day of
her mother's death had she felt so utterly alone In the bright, gay world.
Penitently she recalled certain pus-
sages nt arms—Bronson's futile efforts
to tell of his hive and her skillful parrying, Had It been done entirely In
deference to her aunt's wishes or In a
spirit of sheer coquetry? Perhaps he
had tired of It all, and bis curt farewell
had been the outward expression of
bis disappointment In her. If be hnd
even tried to speak with her alone or
there had been anything more than
cool good breeding In his last hand
eltispt Oh, If only be were here now,
bow different—
Sho started guiltily as a light step
sounded on thestairsoutsldc. It seemed
almost us if she hud been thinking
ul..ud and had taken some stranger Into her confidence. Tbe steps drew
nearer. The stranger had not gone on
deck, but wus coming round the gallery leading to the library. Hastily
drying her eyes, she rose, gave u greut
gasp uud then dropped back Into her
chair. A figure stood in the doorway
so like Brouson'S thut she thought it
some trick of her tired, nervous brain,
She ClUtCbed the desk to steady herself, hut there was no question about
the Voice, Thut was real, uud It was
Bronson's. She gave a glad little cry
and held out her hand. He took it In
both uf his.
"Miss Ashhiirtun Kuld forgive uu*,
but 1 wauled tu be the lust lusuygond
b.v. even if I hud to   well, 1 couldn't
talk  wiih  that  kindergarten about
I've been trying to get u moment nlune
with you for weeks, but you've always
had tbe little fellows about as fenders.
They ure all behind now.   1 counted
'em on the duck as we slid by. 1 gave
tbem their chiilue, and nuw I wuut
Ull lie."
Hold through force of habit looked
round helplessly for some avenue of
'•Don't look so desperate," Bronson
murmured whimsically, "I'm not era*
By—at least nut lu the way you think,
lint 1 am very, very much In lovu wltb
you, aud I think you love mc—a little."
He Ignored her gesture of protest. "I
loved you from the moment I met you,
but your aunt has tilled your heud
with this notion that you ought to
have your fling before considering even
au engagement Kuld, if you love me
half us much us I love you you would
not keep me waiting till you've stud-
led the genus man as he Is in Europe.
And 1 love you too well to let you go
over to Europe nnd buy a title Just because some silly women tell you It's
the proper caper.
".Maybe you don't know that you
love me. The social puce has been so
fust you haven't hnd time to think.
In ten minutes they will put off the
pilot. It*b my lust chance togo ashore.
Do I go with htm, or do I proceed to
Europe as your fiance?"
For the first time he looked straight
Into her eyes, to meet an expression he
bad never seen there before. He held
out his arms, and when he raised his
bead ngnln he whispered tenderly:
"You do love me, sweetheart, and
now—you know it."
She looked up, her face aglow.
"I knew It when yon said goodby—
He held her close and murmured
something thut made her start back
"Ob, you impetuous boy!"
"Do," he urged, "I have captured
you fairly and aboveuoardl"
She glanced shyly into bis strong,
eager face. Then she smiled saucily.
"Indeed, sir, It's u good thing for you
that we are still in sight of lund, or
this would be piracy on the high sens.
Still—as you Insist—and only for that
reason, why"— Her voice faltered, and
her glance fell. "It happens that Aunt
Betb's favorite clergyman is on board,
and If you are set upon saving expenses and making this our honeymoon trip"—
Another kiss checked tbe laughing
words. Bronson's eyes were dancing
with mischief, nnd he spoke incautiously.
"Yes, I know he's on board. Fact Is,
I paid his passage with the proceeds
of a little haul I mude last week on
the street. I thuflght he needed the
vacation, nnd I had an idea he might
come in handy. You see, I am a moral
pirate. I believe ln carrying a chaplain."
Enid pulled herself free.
"Do you presume to tell me you were
so sure as thatV" she demanded. There
was a flash of the old spirit. The battle bad been too easily won.
"My dear, I did not presume," he
said humbly. "Dr. Burton knows nothing—of this. It was simply by the
force of my great love thut I hoped to
win, and with Cupid and a chaplain"—
The vessel wns slowing up for the
departure of the pilot. Bronson turned
uervously, but a hand was laid gently
on his arm, and a tender voice whispered:
"With Cupid and a chaplain! Oh,
the combination Is too strong. Will-
will you tell Aunt Beth? I can't."
So the pilot went back alone.
Queer Fish,
Which fish have the power of float*
ting and swimming back downward?
This peculiar property is possessed
only by the diodou und the tetrodon,
two allied families of tropical tlshei
which aro popularly known as globe-
fish. The tetrodon is also found off the
coasts of Cornwall and Ireland. Tbe
faculty Is due to the fact that thc skin
on the abdomen of these fishes is much
looser than it is on the back, and they
have the power to Inflate this loose
skin by swallowing air through the
gullet. This of course enables them
to turn over at will, uud, although tbe
great French naturalist Guvler did not
believe that when In this position they
could swim ns they pleased, Darwin
corrected him and proved that they
could swim both forward and backward In this position.
It Is of course well known that tbe
shark aud the dogfish, owing to the
peculiar position of the imderjnw, nre
obliged to turn on tlieir bucks beforo
they cun seize their prey, and while lu
this position they nre able to swim for
a very considerable distance. This,
however, Is done by the muscular force
of thc fins and tall and not through
any special apparatus, sue* ns the
globe-fish possesses.—London Answers.
Mohnmiiit-d'a   Vacation.
Mohammed, when asked where he
would spend his vacation, replied, "Mohammed will go to the mountain,"
Upon counting his change, however,
be found thut he was short, so was
compelled to stny his two weeks' vacation In thu city, Later on he made
capital out of the saying and was also
enabled to take u trip to the seashore,

1 iiml more Until ii iiiUi> io gn to the
-wiirfhuuHe aud lnul to walk every step
ot the wuy. Not a penny dill 1 liuve tn
Uiy uuine Hint bud not bud for three
weeks.   Thut Is why Holly wus crying,
It Is true thut I was holding a position at a nullity of $100 pet* month, but
then 1 hud been employed by Simp*
kins & Co. only three weeks previous*
ly, and prior to tlutt I hud been out of
employment for two solid mouths.
Dully and 1 were living lu u fairly
good section uf Harlem when 1 was
worklug for Him U Bios. & Co., Hiid,
like most New Yorkers of my class,
lived up to every cent of my two thou*
suud a yeur. When u receiver stepped
Into the wholesale tiriu of lllfit'l, Bros.,
1, with others, stepped out. 1 bud one
w nek's sulary coming to lue, nnd tlutt
was all Dully and 1 owned lu the world
besides our household goods.
So for those two weary months of
uy idleness we kept up appearances
by Dolly's able management of my
lust |4U sulary, but the climax hud
come. The lundkird, to use an expression of the street, hnd beeu milking Inquiries and wus "getting wise." He
wanted hia rent for one month nt least
and that at once. I hnd been engaged
by tbe month til my new position, uud
lt wus a hurd and fust rule never to
allow the employees to draw money
before their salaries were due.
I bad tried to borrow a dollar or two
from some of the others, but 1 soon
found thut In thut establish ment na
one toward the end of the month had
anything to spare. Hence my financial
embarrassment and Dolly's distress.
1 could not see the house ug. nt. she
suld, because I bad sueh a "horrid,
nusty wuy of losing my temper." So
she undertook the straightening out of
tbe whole finuticinl tangle.
"Well, guile," said I when 1 reached
borne that night, "did you fix him, that
fellow, for the rent?"
"Yes, dear," she replied; "but right
in the middle of It up enme Dr. Temple from the lower flat to see If I was

"Never mind. Dolly." 1 sitld .heeling-
ly. "The doctor will never whisper it.
He's ti good fellow, mul I bellevo be

"Oh, Ueorge, bow could you?"
: "I never mild anything, dear."
"No, but you finite very near n |ug*
fftillim Vim know you wouldn't take
a cent of his money." And ns she
•Huigiiteiieii up hit little frame proud-
ly 1 smiled mul drew ber to me.
"Nn, di'ut*; you are right However,
whut was It the agent Bald?"
"Oh, It was horrid,   He has n voice
like a bull, and he culled out as he left
tbe room, 'I'll cull Monday for It, inlitd,
aud 1 expect to get It,' uutl just then
Dr. Temple came around the bend In
tbe stairs."
"Never mind, dear. What's for supper V"
Tbere was very little; but, then, we
were both used to thut now,
Huturduy bad come. Here It was nl-
most midnight, and I hud not yet left
the warehouse. It was the usual busy
end of the month, and we were all
Working overtime. Early In tlie even-
lug l sent Dolly a note telling her I
-Would be late and thut 1 hud received
my salary. I would not intrust lt to
tbe messenger.
In half an hour we were released,
and I hurried home. Dolly wus sitting
pp waiting for me, and on the table
supper was prepared. Bob, my big
Newfoundland dog, greeted me ut tlie
0oor. He, too, seemed *o be aware
(hat tbe father of the house wits coming home wltb $100, and he hud Just
cause to rejoice, for Hob's meals nt
home bad been cut down for the post
We were half through supper when
my wife asked to see the money. I bud
kot offered It to her purposely to teuse
her. I could not keep from a little
Joke, so wltb malice aforethought hud
left the money iu my overcoat pocket.
I told Dolly where to tlud It. It wui a
one hundred dollar lull, ami ut tbe
Office before 1 came away I hud folded
II as  small  as possible  anil seuled  il
up niter Milling it iu a loug narrow
strip of that waterproof paper so much
used In lurge wholesale dry gondii
bouses for wrapping purposes. It
iiiuile a bulk about half the ulm of uu
Dolly limited and huuled, but to uu
avail.   1 sitw she wus limiting worried.
"I'llere is nothing here, lieorge, hut
this old piece of wrapping paper," she
BllId.  "Surely you haven't lust It.   How
cureless of you to curry money lu your
overcoat pocket."
I winked ut Mob and tossed I lui a
crust of bread, He cuugbt It uud wug
ged  Ida tall Willi aiitisfuetlon.
"It's there, dear," I said, "lu that
very pocket you ure rumbling lu how."
"No, It's not, I suy. There Is only
tbis," and, us she cutight me luughlug.
she threw the small lump of wuter-
proof paper coutuiulug tbe bill aeruat
the room ut me.
Hub jumped lu the air aud, heuvens
above, cittight the package In his great
Jaws, rave a gulp or two and stood
wuggiug hia tail.
1 let out a yell aud leaped at bim.
He bolted around the room, out lute
the hull uud down the stairs.
"He's swullowed the money," 1
shrieked at Dolly as 1 rushed after the
dog down the long stairway. 1 heard
Dolly scream; then tbere was a loud
bark and a growl from Bob on ahead
of me and almost simultaneously a
Dash and u sharp report from a revolver. Before I could reulize what lt
meant 1 felt a stinging blow on the
side of the heud and went headlong
down the stairs on my fuce. For a
second I waa knocked stupid. 1 remember a gruff voice cursing me aa
the huge form of a man sprang over
my body and ran for tbe street.
The whole household was aroused,
Dr. Temple came to my aid In a few
minutes, and I was lifted up bleeding
and taken to bis oltice.
"Faithful brute, that dog," 1 beard
Temple say. "He's lying on the landing below. Those burglars nearly did
for you, Mr. Moore. They were robbing my offices when you tackled tbem.
Lie quiet, my inuu," he went on aa 1
attempted to rise from tbe couch on
which they hud placed me.
"Oh, burglurs be hanged!" I cried.
"The dog, doctor-the hundred dollurs
—whore's Dolly V—the dog—the mouey.
If there is any burglar, it's that miser
utile dog. Muke him give lt up. Doctor, let me out of here!" 1 yelled at tbe
top of my voice as they again tried to
force me buck.
"His head," said the doctor to my
wife as he moved to get a fresh hold
of uie; "that blow was a nasty oue, hut
he'll be all right in a little while."
This wus exasperating to me. "Oh,
tell him, Dolly, quick!" 1 cried. "The
dog—Bob—tbe hundred dollars. Hung
it!   (Jet the money, l say—get It!"
"The dog's dead." said the doctor
quietly.   "The burglars ahot bim,"
"Well, get the money! Do you bear?"
I continued to shout
1 suw Dolly look at me appeallugly,
then whisper io the doctor. He glanced
around quickly, picked up a mini 11
satchel and rushed from the room, foi
lowed by ull except my wife, who
came weeping to the vouch where 1
lay, She was telling me of uiy narrow
escape when the doctor returned luughlug. In a silver Instrument be held up

citizen who bud beeu out west und relumed u week or ao before my arrival
entered the office aud waa ut once asked to relate noiue of bit adventures,
He soon -.tinted off wltb a story about
nu avuluiirhe sliding off with a mountain and burying 10,000 head of cattle
under the stones und dirt, He wsa
there uud saw It ull, and he waa the
one who curried the bud newa to the
owner of the cattle, Tbere were looks
of doubt un the faces of Home uf his

uf them finally naked of me:
"Stranger, do you think such a thing

"It la not Impossible," I answered.
"Hut wouldn't Ht leust one of thoae

"Not necessarily so. Their tails might
have got twisted around the bushes,

"So they might. Did you see any
twisted tails, Hiram?"
"Hundreds of 'em, but I forgot to

"Then tbat makes lt all right, and I
hope you'll go ahead and tell us about

Next morning the story teller paid

bunds, he said:
"Stranger, I want to thank you for

is to walk  through  lhe Woods hy  lhe

proudly to the hotel register, adding
that tbe view well repaid the exertion, hut to my mind ts much mors
moderate climb eon give you ull lhe
view _ normal person's desires crave,
The climb to the siuiimit of Mount
Abbott is what the Swiss guide calls
an easy useeut. You can decide that
by your own et ndition after you have
inadu lt, but ut ull events try it If
you uie iu the wuy of mountain cMlulling. The mount, one oi the shoulders of Boss Peak, rises behind the
butel. You climb the hillside, .is
steep as u stairway, through the
woods for an hum* and three-quarters,
wheu you reach the snow level, Ih-J

needed till you reach the summit, and
countless snowclud mountain peaks
are in view, with the valley below,

a fungus growth, and looks ,ss snow

From Glacier we went to Field,

We left Field with regret at our

We all aat our horses astride—no

but her plight- was rather startling
us we came upon her in the woods.
She had slipped back and hack ns
she ascended tke mountain until
when we saw her she was almost over the tail of the horse. By a dexterous move she leaned forward,
caught the animal round thc neck
and pulled herself Into position, I
heard her remark as I came up "I
don't thin', that lady's saddle is
very safe." I could not help saying,
"I don't feel I am taking moro
chances than you are, madam." From
a gentleman who saw her as she
went down the hill we learned that
she sat as nearly over the ears of
