were the discovery of two new bodies

This ore body is said to carry hcav\
deposits of silver mid lead, with a
smaller proportion of vine than is
carried in the oW Sullivan workings
and in the North Star group Development work is being pushed rapid!]
on these claims, with very satisfactory results.

Review of Districl Operations
(By N. A. Walltogcr).
Although quart/,    mining   hits been
going on ia this    section for      over
twenty years, und .several mines luivc
paid nnd aro still paying well, general Intercsl in mining bus boon quins
colli for some time, due partly to
the wani of ndwqtialo transportation—
partly lu Mia operation!*! of ill-advised
nml Ill-equipped companies of small
financial status—partly to tbe
bitanl prices naked by tho owners
when their properties were in demand
mid partly to fas'hioii.
We have in sight, a very varied list
of mineral hearing lodes, soiiu* of
the outcrops being exceptionally well
defined, but most of theiu are concent rat ing properties* where transportation is most important; these
are more often than not held under
crown grant iu which ease annual
work is not requisite as long a**** the
taxes are paid, ami the owners
seem reluctant to do any further
work linlil such time as they see
some chance of making a profit. As
one can readily understand this does
tin' conduce to progression hut
rather stagnation; anil investors,
very often, ami tliey can scarcely be
blamed for     So dt ing, follow Ihi*
line of argument, tbal If the owners
have not sufficient confidence in their
property to continue working, they
should not expect strangers who an*
in t expected to know as much ahtout
the 1 ncal condition as the owners to
fall over each otlier to obtain pos-1
session at exorbitant prices.
Quick returns with small profits
should he the slogan of every pro
pector, and there is no doubt that
following this advice consistently
would in time increase the demand,
create interest and tend to prospect
more country, as very tew prospectors can afford to pick up new properties while still holding old ones.
We have in tins country several
mining camps, the biggest of which is
the Tracy Creek camp, including all
in open iis on Wolf, Wasa, Lewis,
Tracy, Six Mile, Grundy, Four Mile.

Too much study of theory and
science seems, iu many cases, to
dilute a man's comiunn sense to the
vattfvMng point. Many an expert, on

tried to make the facts as he found
them lit some theory or scientific
conception, instead nt studying the
facts first and then finding the theory
that- squared with them. When,
l hen lore, Cronin stated the occurrence of the same ore bodies on
both sides of lhe lake, ou the St.

assurance of fact tbal few will differ

Sow ihat Mr.    Lloyd George's bill;
making insurance compulsory in    the
United Kingdom has been passed   by1
both    houses ot the    llritish parliament, it. -seems desirable, as the measure will probably In time form   tlu*
Jtasis of progressive legislation      in
Canada, and iu   other parts    of    the
empire     i<>    explain In   broad terms
what the bill  in the   form in   wbieh
it lias   been     passed Into law  really
The bill has   encountered a     B°od
deal of     opposition     in certain quarters, but upon the whole it bas     appealed tu the   Imaginations and   ihe
common-sense   of the    British people
as an eminently just  ami wise       attempt  to     solve it problem tbat    has
he-1.  the despair id statesmen        for
Ihe last fifty years.
The measure now awaits the Royal
assent and when it receives this
every employed person, male of
lemaie, up to tho ago ol slaty-five
will Ih* compulsorlly Insured, with
the exception ol non-manual workers
with au Income ol more than IKini a
year .ind om- nr two other small
Kor persons earning fifteen shillings
a week <ir over, the premiums will
be, in the ease of men, four-pence
week paid bv the worker, tluce-
pence a week paid by the employer,
and twopence a week paid by llu-
state Women workers will pay a
penny a week less, but the contributions from the employer     and     the
state will be the same. The premiums

There an* additional benefits under
special circumstances, and tho bill
includes a scheme fnr compulsory insurance againsl unemployment
which, at present, applies only to ter.
sum specified trades.
Contributions t,.r lhe instiianee are
twopence halfpenny a week from the
worker, and ono and two-thirds of a
penny a week irom the state. The
benefrl will be seven shHUnp » week
U r fifteen weeks in any twelve
months, but only one week's lieniTit
ean In* drawn for every five weeks'
contributions, and no worker is eligible for the benefits unless he has
been Insured lor twenty-six weeks, In
this part of the bill certain advantages are offered to employers with the
idea of preventing unemployment.
Every person Insured must either
liecc im- a member of an approved
benefit society or a post office contributor.
Every insured person will lie provided with a card, to which each
week tin*, employer must Mi stamps
covering his own and tho wooket's
contributions. The employer Is responsible for both contributions, and
It Is left to him to deduct the worker's sluirr from his WAgCS,
This briefly, is Mr, Lit yd Oeorge'
scheme,      It is, iii.<|tti*sMiinnhly,    an
attempt, to carry out a necessary 100*
ial reform, ami us such ft has retclv
ed Wio   sympathetic attention of men
id all parties.
It is frankly ami full*, admitted
ihat in force everyone to make some
-.nil of provision for sickness and
inemploymcnl is wise and necessary,
unless Lho state is Itself to assume
responsibility for the care of every
nick person and the food of every
man who is unemployed. That is the,
u-ialist ideal,    and the bitter     al-
cks made on the bill by tho extreme logical Socialists represented
by such periodicals as the "New
i\gc" and "Justice," ure sufficient
evidence that in its insistence that
the state will only help those who
help themselves tho bill is essentially
Little heed need be given ol the
artificial attempt to urge the sei-
vaiits' hall into open revolt against
Mr. Lloyd Oeorgo. Every argument
brought lorward to prove the wickedness of cocks and parlor maids insuring themselves to tlie tune of
threepence a week can bc brought forward     with     eipial    cogency against
every form of Insurance known to
modern life—life assurance, sickness
assurance, Are assurance, burglary
If ii is wise for the master lo pay
yearly premiums to insure his life,
If is eipially wise for tbe maid to
>a\ weekly premiums to insure herself
against sickness. The personal in-
conventenco <>I sticking on the stamps
and the fact that many mistresses
Would have to pay their own as well
js the servant's lax Iins helped the
The threepence wceMy demanded
ft. te tm* employers cannot in* regarded as a serious grievance, and the
talk about tbe destruction of friendly
relations between mistresses ami
maids is just foolish chatter, ft Is
not true that the majority of scram girls an- looked after when they
.ne ill. The figures of workhouse Infirmaries prove thai.
The objections to the lull, have
been many, bul most of them have
ineii fairly met (hie of the prob
lems tbat have yet to Im* solved is
bow can a sick woman without a
home of her own be pr< petly looked
after for seven shillings autl sixpence
a week'' She is presumably without
means, and the scvi-n-nhd-stxprncc is
to supply her with bed, attendance
anil food—whieh is absurd.
Indeed, a weak point in tbe bill Is
that it gives lhe least help to those
who need it the most. The workman with a couple of pounds a week
aud a home nt bis own gets a
splendid return for his weekly tour-
pences, The casual laborer without
a home mid with a Weekly lucerne
under a sovereign gets a relatively
had retain for bis While the two-
|iouiid-a-weck mail will be taxed at
the tate of less (ban one per cent.,
the servant girl e.onitu* ■*-.'■■ a year

The small cniplovc. will in ail
probability leel tin new impost,
nnd as a consequence then will be a
decrease in tin* amount rf casual

Hut ns a mat ter ol tart all social
reforms have a tendency to hurt

A world record was established on
Sunday in the way of electrical
transmission ut Port Credit, when an
all day test was made with the longest distance and the highest potential
ilu- world has ever witnessed.
h'oi six months past power has
been supplied Port Credit from To
niito. The Port Credit transformer
lal ion is now finished and it bas
i. 'i'ii made possible to take power
illicit from the main line of the
hydro-electric commission Into the
11 an sf oimet.
The test was conducted by KrIU
Gaby, first assistant to Chief Engineer Sotbman, ami by John ■».
Urundlgc. Fcr lho purpose ol the
tesl the puss bars ut the Duntlas station were divided and the power sent
from Port Credit on the south side
to Woodstock, London, St. Mary's,
Stralforh, Berlin, Preston, Oucloh;
mi the north side to Dumlas, Toronto and back to -Port Credit. The .lis-
(ance covered was 273 miles.
Such a test has never before been
made in the history of electric
science, and this is a record achievement * The nearest approach was
over a 150 miles circuit in California. Nothing so high, however , lu
lhe way of tension has ever been
suit this distance, the voltage being
I15.U00 horsepower. The loss on
living at Port Credit on return wai
5,000 horsepower.
The     test demonstrates the ahilit*.
ol the hydro-electric commission system to deliver power at Ottawa
three bundled and ten miles; Windsor,
iwo hundred ami forty-two miles, or
any similar distance in the province.
The whole province may, therefore,
he said to be under llie control of
tbe commission.
It is considered hy the en^inccrim*,
staff of the commission that in liv
turc building long distance lines a
voltage of 150,000 io 160,000 hoi .e
power will he chosen.
Uiti room was in semi-darkness. I
It was very quiet, and Dot lay very!
still, bui slu* was wide awake; every!
now nnd then a cinder would fall]
not'ily io the hearth, otherwise there!
was no Bound, and nurse sat still In
ber armchair looking at ibe fire.
As she lay lu her cot. by turning her!
head Dot could see the door quite I
plainly in the niokerlng light, and
presently she got tired of watching,
the light on tbe celling and turned1
round Facing the door; It was jUBt
closed bui not fastened, nnd as she
looked Dot thought she saw It move
Yes, she was sure of It, lhe door was
slowly, very slowly, opening,
She lay quite stilt, nml row It swing
open about six Inches, and then she
saw a tiny man about a foot high peep
round the door into the room. He
nodded tils bead and smiled at Dot, and
with a finger placed against Ills Upa
walked soft y Into the room on tiptoe.
He wain dressed lu u costume made
of red poppy petals, uud round his
throut -.mis n necklace or tiny dried
poppy Huedhottds; on his wrists weru
brace lots nl the Bnmo. As ho walked
lhe seeds In tbeso rustled and rattled
softly, like whispering fairy voices.
On his bead wns a half-opened puppy
bul serving uh n cup. In one hand he
belt! a large red poppy flour; it had
no stalk, but be held It by Ibe tips of
ihe petals nil gathered together In his
hand. |
Softly he walketl across the room to
where nurse sat, and ns he moved the
scent of his poppy petal dress floated
through the room, and made Dot feel
sleepy. It evidently had the same e»*
feet on nurse, lor her head began to
nod forward drowsily as the little man
Bklpped lightly on to a chair behind
the one on which she sat. I
Dot did not say a word, but she tried
hard to keep awake to see what he
was going to do next.
Very quietly the little man dipped a
hand Into the Dower that he wbb hold-.
Ing, whicli evidently served as a bag,i
tor he lilted a handful of poppy pollen,
ur, us some call It, poppy dust, out of
it, aud lightly sprinkled It lu nurse's
eyes us she sal with her head resting
on thu back of the chair, almost sound
asleep. Then he jumped to the ground
again ami came lowards Dot.
"Who ure you.'" .-aid Dot, as he came
closer, hut even as she spoke she
guessed what his answer would be.
"I'm the Dustman," replied the little
man, "so come, you must go lo sleep
now," and he dipped his hand Into the
i*oppy bag again.
"Oh, please, wait a moment before
vou send me to Bleep." cried Dot. "I
want to nsk you something."
"VY<-]$ you must be quick, then, for
l bavo a lol to do to-night."
"Please tell uw," untd l>ot, "do you
always send nurse to sleep every night
v. lieu she goes io bed. because she
says she never sets you?"
"Of course 1 do," replied tbe Dustman, and his voice sounded farther
away. "Of course she never sees me,"
be continued, "lor she does no*t believe
I exist, uud she hnsn't seen me to-night
either, because my scented dteis
makes ber sleepy the moment 1 come
into the room, uud then I throw this
dust lu her eyes uml send her Bound
asleep al once, as she is now," and he
nodded bib heed ut the nurse's sleeping
"Then why liau'ii't I gone to sleep
too?" Inquired Dot.
''Because you believed lu me and
wanted tu see me so much tbat I
thought I would let you for once, but
you i*^h,ili asleep, you know; tba
scent OT**my dress Is sending you to
"I'm not." taid Dot, indignantly; but
the little man's voice sounded farther
away mill as be finished speaking, and
she beinn io wonder if she really was
lulling asleop utter all.
"Don't contradict; It's rude!" said
ihe Dustman, frowning and dipping his
1 nml once more into the poppy bag,
"I realty don't think I'm going to
sleep." murmured Dot drowsily.
"Well, you arc sound enough asleep
now," cried the Mum man with a gay
laugh, as ho throw n handful of the
dust Inio Dot's blinking eyes.
And tmre enough she was,-

"I don't wain to go to bed." said Dot
for about Ibc tenth time since nurse
had begun to undress her.
"Re a good girl," said nurse, "snd go
to bed without any more fusa, and I'd
stay with you till you go to sleep."
"Hut I'm nol sleepy." said Dot, still
protesting, "aud I don't want to r> to
"Not sleepy. Well, tbe Dustman
will soon be here now. It's past bis
time already, for you are half-asleep
after all, Miss Dot." said nurse, tucking ber Into bed.
Dot had often wondered why people
said "lhe Dutsman was coming" when
she was getting sleepy, and now t-h
said, "Nurae, does the Dustman come
to see you every night, and do you
see him, and why can't 1 stay up one
night and sec hlm, too?"
"What a loi of questions to he sure,"
safd nurse as she sat down by the fire.
"No, he doesn't come to see me; I'm
too big. Hut there, try to go to sleep
now, dear, snd I'll slay up here for a
little while.

In 188(i he was elected member of
the provincial parliament lor th* tlistriet of Esquimau. He continued lo
represent that district for fourteen
years, nine of which he passed in tbe
speaker's chair. His rulings are

of the legislature, and form much interesling reading; having heen rendered at a time when the constitution of the country was in a chrysalis

On February 22, 1890, Mr. Iliggins
inaugurated the fust street ear lines
in tb.* province, equipped them with
electricity, then scarcely known as a
means of propulsion. There was
only one other line of electrically-
propelleu street ears in Canada—tbal
"between Thoroid and Mcrriton, Ontario. Seattle had a four-car line,
and Portland, Oregon, another. Son,*

nf th.* year's building operations has
been the steady increase in the use

is prospect of an addition to the

Retail Business
The hardware merchants report
greatly increased sales, with collections well mel aod cash sales averaging 25 per cent td the total business. Mole attention bas been paid
lo the wholesale end of the business
than iii former years wilb very satisfactory results.
Dry goods and men's furnishings:
Merchants engaged iu this line of
business report a greater volume
of business than in the preceding
year, but wilb smaller cash sales to
credit sales in proportion.
The butchers report a steadily increasing volume of httsiness with u
scarcity of lire stock and a consequent increase in price. The chief
by-product, hides, has found a steady
market t hroughoul the year, at
prices ranging from eight to ten
cents per lb f.o.b. Cranhrook.*
Local grocers report n volume ol
business slightly in excess of last
year, with prieea at about the same
figure. A mire careful policy of
handling credit accounts was inaugurated during the year.
The furniture iHisiness was hard hit
during the closing mouths of the
year by reason tt lhe coal strike, a
number of railway employees, who,
under normal conditions would have
made considerable purchases iu that
line, refrained from so doing owing
tn the possibility nl tbe railway
companies making greater reductions
in thin working stall.
While a< times retail payments
were slow they were quite up lo the
average of previous years.

to be one.
Aa the boy grew up, so Mr. Maxwell's business iuereased by leaps and
bounds, tor ha had Hegglo to work for
now. Ha meanl the boy to lime a
very different upbringing from his
own. and ha sent him to aii expensive
preparnini.i school, rrom tbence to s
well known public school, and even-
tuitlly Reggie went to Oxford.
■ ■■ i did excellently at school and
college, and lbs father's prido In bis
son's success was indescribable.
He hud n mom npi-rlally furnished
io the office, putting 'he very latest
■ om. iiti-tii'i h Inio it, nnd making It as
comfortable as possible . He told the
clerks ft was in i.f known rs "Mr.

nnole died, leaving his only child, now
nu orphan, in Ills brother's charge.
All,i> .Maxwell was a unlet, good-
looking viil oi twenty when she came
to live with her t'nele Stephen, and
she iptedlly became, like a daughter
to Mr. nml Mrs. Maxwell.
Rente came down from oxford, and
voted Alice n "Jolly good sort." When
In* went up again he took ber heart
with bim. ■ hough he did not know It.
Alice Imd never met anyone qulto
like Reggie. His public school and
college careers bad put a stamp on
him which made hlm different from
nny other young meu she met. He was
a handsome lmy, too, and had what
the Irish call "n way with him."
Tbe girl gave her love unasked, snd,
when she realized this, she resisted sll
Reggie's attempts to flirt with her. It
annoyed ihe undergraduate st first,
but presenl ly he began to conceive a
new respect for his pretty cousin.
Mr. and Mrs. Maxwell were not
blind to lhe stale ef affairs. And It
pleased them highly, for they desired
no one more Hum Alice for their son's
wife. Many a happy hour they psised
nfter Alice Imt! gone tn bed, planning
loi* the young i-ouple's future.
They hoped they would live In tbo
t'sutiu bouse; bul, If net, Stephen Max*
well was quite prepared to buy a
homo snd furnish It for hia bojr. In
addition to the handsome ---alary lie !
intended to give him when he entered
the business.
"Perhaps they'll have a Itoy, wife,"
he said, gleefully, und Maxwell and
Son will keep on into another generation."
Stephen Maxwell was over sixty
now, but lie looked, acted and felt as
though he were ten years younger.
Alice Maxwell counted tlm weeks
until the vacations came round and
brought Reggie. She developed considerable during the two years following her father's death; her beauty
gaining her many admirers, but she
would dispense with them all but
"Why, Ally, you grow prettier every
time I Bee you," said her cousin, when
he come down for his laut vacation
from Oxford.
Tho gfrl flushed a fiery crimson,
and her heart beat furiously at the
words. She was content to find approval In Reggie's eyes. Hut be showed no signs of returning tint lovo sho
lavished on bim lu secret, and her
heart grew heavy in these days.
Reggie's career at Oxford was a
nerles of triumphs. Ho had got a
double first and had Bcored a century
at Lord's against Cambridge, amongst
other honors, sending his father Into
transports of delight.
"I do hope you won't work hlm too
hard at the office, Stove," said Mrs.
"Bless your heart, wife, there won't
be an easier job at first under the sun.
Uut he'll went to work presently—It's
In our blood—and there'll be no holding him back."
"Mr. Reginald's room" was dusted
and Aired every day now, ready for Its
tenant, snd very often Mr. Maxwell
would steal into It and gaze round,
rubbing his hands and chuckling with
At length Reggie came down rinally
from Oxford, and wsb told by his father to have- his fling for s month.
He obeyed readily, dining out and going to theatres nearly every night.

leredia motor which was to take
and himself to the office and

It to come as a great surprise (o the
boy, snd he often pictured those journeys In Reggie's company.
One evening Reggie came down
dressed for a dinner at the Savoy,
when his father called to him from his
work-room. Reggie entered, liis tall
form clad In immaculate evening dreBs

man in his somewhat shabby tweed

"Have one of mine, Reggie," exclaimed Mr. Maxwell eagerly, taking
down'a box of cigars.
Reggie smiled in a slightly superior
"Thanks, guv.," he said, "but I prefer my own. Carrondel and I Import

"Lord Carrondcl?" asked Stephen
Maxwell In tones of awe.
"That's the boy." replied Reggie

"I thought I'd Just tell you that your
month's holiday will be up on Saturday, my boy."
Reggie frowned, and stared moodily
at the smoke of his cigar.
"Your room's all ready at the office,
you know."
Mr. Maxwell began to smile ns he
wondered whether he should tell Reggie about the motor now; but he decided to keen it us a glorious surprise
for Monday morning.
"I've been meaning to speak to you
about tlio business, guv'nor," began
Reggie slowly.
"What la it. Reggie, want a bit
longer fling?" asked Mr. Maxwell In
disappointed tones, for he had been
looking forward so much to Moudoy
"Fact fs." blurted out Reggie desperately, "I don't want to go into the business at nil."
"Kb?" sas-i ed his father.
"1 don't want tu go into trade. I
want to he in a profession." Reggie
went on. "What's the good of my getting a double first at Oxford if I'm to
be mewed up in a poky office All dAy?"
Mr. Maxwell gazed nt his son, but
no reply came to his lips. He felt suddenly weary and brokcu. This was tbe
end of twenty one years of hope. His
face was grey, his throst full.
"I want to read for the nor, guv'nor," snlil Reggie, still not during to
meet his Fathers gaze.
Mr. Maxwell gulped down the lump
in his throat, and a sad little smJl-j
crossed his face.
"The Bar, Iteggie." he said slowly,
"Vou must tell mu how to go about It."
Iteggie was so amozed that he used
a term which his friends would hav*
called "very middle class."
"Why, l thought you were so keen
on me going into tbo office," he wont
"I thought yon would havo come,
Reggie, but-■" he paused. "About this

he added, "aud we think It'll be better

to clear his throat- -"to go Into a profession, so he's going to bo a barrister."
"Oh, Steve, aren't you disappointed?"
"Just s tittle, wife, but. ss long as

to bim.
"Mr. Reginald's room is all ready,
sir," said the managing clerk whea
Stephen entered.
•'Give me the key," answered Mr.
.Maxwell, "my son will not bo coming
into the firm." i
When all the clerks had gone that
evening, Mr. Maxwell went Into "Mr.
Reginald's room" ami stood for a long
time aiarlng at the empty chair. Then
he sighed wearily, nnd, walking from
the room, locked the door behind bim.
Thenceforward he always kept the key
In bis pocltf-t, but never au evening
pSBBed but he would visit tho room.
People began to remark bow frail
and old be had suddenly grown, uud
BOmfl spoke tO hlm about it.
Meanwhile, Reggie Maxwell started
iu read for the Bar, ami enjoyed the
process immensely. His lather made
lilm a handsome allowance, und, in
addition, gave him various presents of
money from time to time.
Ills evenings at home were very few
and far between, and ho generally
■pent them at the piano with Alice, or
playing piquet with her.
Once or twice lie took Alice out to
dine, and hor fresh beauty, in contrast
with the jaded looks of the fashionable
ladles hs met, rather opened his eyes.
He found himself watching her more
often, and his evenings at homo grew
a little more frequent.
Ills father had never said a word
about Maxwell and Son to bim since
the evening when he bad cut himself
adrift, from the buslnflhs. Occasionally
Reggie thought of It. only tu decide
ihat his father hml forgotten about It,
taken by Um far too lightly, and many
an evening when be was supposed to
be studying at Grey's Inn ho was playing bridge at a club.
He began to lose mure than lie could
afford lo, mil II he found himself in
rather a tight corner. His father had
only recently given htm a handsome
cheque, uml he did not like to go to him
again so soon.
Then a friend lold hlm of a Mr.
JacobBon in the City, whose solo object In life, according to liis own story,
wob to help young men In trouble. To
him went Iteggie, and asked for a loan
of five hundred pounds.
'Certainly, my hoy, certainly, delighted," murmured the moneylender
with a greasy familiarity.
"Of course, my teur poy, there's Just
one leedle matter, vot BQgurity you
gtf me, hein?"
"I hati noi thought, of thai."
Mr. JoeoliHon shiilcil benevolently.
"It is not of mooch sggount, but 1 like
to be businesslike. Vot your father
vos, hein?"
"He's Maxwell, of Maxwell and Sou,
In Blshopsgate Street."
"Vou say d.it," .Jocobson exclaimed,
"den clt*tv vill |.t no difficulty, Mags-
veil aud Son is gooi enough for me."
For the first, time Reggie experienced some pride in hit* father's business. It had not occurrred to him before that .Mr. Maxwell held any position, but it was obvious from Jacob-
son's manner, (lint the firm of Maxwell and Son wns thought very highly
of In the City.
After certain formalities, by whicli
Reggie's identity was proved, ho became possessor of five hundred pounds,
less twenty-five for fees, and bad signed adocununt lu which be agreed to
pay back seven hundred, though he
did not trouble to work it out.
That was not Reggie's Inst visit to
Mr. Jocobson. Ii was such a delightfully easy way of obtaining money tho*.
he paid several more, until the moneylender pulled him up by suggesting
that some of the principal should bs
Reggie's reply was to request Mr.
Jacobson to end his life In a particularly unpleasant manner.
Dut a month later, alas! be was
there agatr.
"Ah, Ulster Magswell, I was Joost
writing you.'- exclaimed tbe moneylender.
"Bother ■'. at, I want another two
hundred pounds," rejoined Reggie.
"Den you iuubi go elsewhere. 1
lend you no more."
"Why?" demanded Reggie contemptuously. "Isn't tho security good
The reply staggered him.
"No Id bi not. Old man Magsvell Is
no good."
"What's that?" cried Reggie In
"I dell you Magsvell and Son vill be
bankrupt zoon, and. before I lend you
more money, 1 must have alt back you
have hud." The moneylender paused
and smiled cunningly as he Added:
and den the segurity must be different."
Reggie almost reeled under the force
of the hlow, and without a word he
strode from the office. He made his
way at once to a friend on tho Exchange, who took him to a man who
was a<-i|ualnted with Mr. Maxwell's
"Don't say who I am." said Reggie.
The man they want to shook his

and Son are nt tho end of their tether.
".Mr. Maxwell is no more like he

believe; anyway be >"■* not been the
same man sine.'. I ibink his son refused lo Join 'I).- Irish,rs. nnd the old
man took ii to b-.an dreadfully."
The speaker paused and stared cur
lously at Reggie.
But Regdie stalked out of the office
as though he had beard nothing.
"Curious manners your friend hsi,"
remarked i],w man who had given the
"Yes. perhaps you'd havo the sum-*

"Oood heavens) Why ou earth didn't you Btop mc?"
"Becsusc I wanted him to hear. It's
the first real mcdlclno he's had, and
it'll do him good."
A few minutes Inter, Reggie stalked
Into the general office of Maxwell and
Son, aud handed his card to a clerk.
A moment sfterwards ho stood In
his fsther's room.
"Why have you come, Reggie?" asked tho fattier.
"This Is Maxwell and Son. Isn't it.
Dad? Well, I'm the son, and l'vo corns
to Jolu."
And a moment Inter the old man's
arms were round his boy, and both
their eyes were wet.

marks Irom Deputy flame Warden
I Hales, the following resolution moved by W. A. Rollins und seconded by
.1. P. Fink was unanimously adopted:
"That tlu* , runt fishing season extend from Mar lsl to October Uth
in each year."
Tite nexl resolution discussed aud
adopted had reference lo the Imposition ol a resident gun license. At
present only non-resident hunters arc
called upon to carry a gun licens.
The sense ol the meeting was tliat il
would materially assist the game
wardens in the prosecution ol their
duties il every hunter, resident as
well as non-resident, were compelled
to carry a license, as welt ns being
a move in the right direction lor
the protection nl game generally.
It was moved by Titos. Caven, seconded by Lester Clapp: "That a resident gun license, of 12.(10 lor Cranbrook district, be enforced." This
motion also met with unanimous support.
A long discussion ensued on the
subject of limiting the number nl
deer to bc shot by each license holder. The present regulations permit
every hunter to kill at least live deer
during the season.       It was the un
animous opinion ol all who spoke on
this topic that live deer was an altogether excessive number, and on
motion ol .1. P. Fink, seconded by D.
.1. Elmer, it was unanimously resolved to n.iimnutiil that tlie number Ih- reduced to 2.
Tlie length ol Ihe season during
which deer muy he shot was another
lopie fruitful ol discussion, the final
conclusion arrived ut being expressed
In tbe lollowlng resolution, unanimously adopted, moved by V. Hyde
Baker und seconded by Thomas Caven: "That Ihc season lor deer open
.Sf.pU.nbcr 1st mid close Novcmlier
■'loth in each year."
On motion cd V. Hyde Baker, seconded by W. S. Santo, It was next
resolved that Mr. Thos. Caven, M.I..
A., be rciiucstcd to ascertain the
views of the government in regard to
prohibiting the sale nl deer meat entirely, anil lo report the result lo a
subsequent meeting.
Another resolution, which brought
proceeding,, to a close, was ol special
interest lo hunters. II was moved
by ,1. P. Fink, seconded fay, George
Leiteh, and was to the lollowlng effect: -That wllh Ibe issuance ol the
proposed new resident gun license the
provisions ro the disposal ol deer
killed heystruck out, that said gun
license bc returnable by January lllth
In every year, to the district government1 agent, specifying the number
