John Uvett.
Quite a little furore has been creat
ed at tlie oapltal over the speech dc
llveicd by Sir Itichard iMcllridia lac
tore tho Canadian Club on Monday afternoon. The point at issue is
whether or nol Sir Klchard should
have dealt with a controversial subject in his address.
The Morning Citizen says-
"It was so.iiewliat unfortunate
that Sir Itichard Mcllridc did not observe a little more closely Ihe custom that prevails 11 lfic Canadian
club of discussing no conir.iversi il
question. Tho lack nl a more hearty
receution of his pro-naval srniini"-ils
was undoubtedly due to lhe facl tliat
the audience ielt the inappropclnlc-
ness of his statements under the particular auspices."
The Ottawa Kvening Journal says.
"The deliverance will he criticised
hy some because its text was an advocacy of the voting of that 136,000,-
000 which the Liberal majority in the
senate blocked last spring. Accordingly the speech will lac interpreted
as a party utterance anal the Canadian clubs are not supposed to be
open tc. party utterances. Nevertheless a man may lie at liberty -to deliver a message Irom his own home,
even belore a Canadian cluh, and even
though it tread on current politics."
The Free Press ta\es an opposite
view and winds up a lengthy editorial
criticising the Hritish Columbia premier as follows:
"Premier McBride abused the hospi-
eality ol his hosts. He took advantage ol a non-partisan gathering
to make capital for the political
party to which he belongs. He owes
an apology taa the Canadian cluh ol
Ottawa arid to those Liberals who
were compelled to listen to him without having an opportunity to answer
back. If he disires to reinstate himself tbat apology will lie forthcoming

productions ever secured for moving
pictures. It was nude at an expense of $300,000, the whole cast for
the production travelling to Palestine and the various scenes of the
play were enacted as closely as possible upon the very place where they
were really supposed to have happened during tbe life of Christ. The
pictures will bo reproduced again tonight and tomorrow night.

In describing the illuminating and
instructive effect of tlie pictures in
presenting the 'ife of Christ in such
form as to make the history of that
life more familiar to everyone who
sees these pictures, ttie story of tlie
actors who took part in tbe making
of the- films, hest illustrate* the
faithfulness to detail and thc scenic
value of the production. —
Mr. Bland, the young English actor
who took the part rf the Saviour, in
recounting some of his experiences.
writes in part:
"So tar as was possible in the absence of any certain knowing* the
location of the scenes was the same
as that in which the incidents portrayed actually took place. The
Ka'em company had a letter from the
White House to the Oovernor cf Jerusalem, asking thnt all assistance be
given to them, and as showing tlie in
terest taken by the authorities in the
Holy Land, the studio was visited by
the Governor and his staff, the religious Judge rf Jerusalem, th«* American Consul, all the principal n-sid
ents of the city, and by priests and
clergy of every creed, who were kind
enough to compliment me on my presentment "
"It must not in* thought that the
pictures are all studio taken, tin
Studio being used only for the construction of buildings which have
since been pulled down. The major

tlie open street or countrv As show.
Ing the reality and fidelity with
which we worked. I carried the cross
—a timber fifteen feel Ions! Urn inches
wide and five inches thick—up the in
dine of the Via Polorcsa, having t<
halt live times on my staggering journey At the end I was physically
exhausted, all the skin being nibbed
off my shoulder, while I had a had
strain of the side."
"Soldiers and police kept the
crowd back in those scenes, while,
when I collapsed in tlte Via Dolorosa,
tlie nuns from the Convent of St.
Veronica brought out to me cordials
and bogged me to rest awhile in tlie
cool chambers ol iheir building. The
heat of the sun was terrific and the
work naturally exhausting.
"The 'Raising of La/arus' scene
was taken in Bethany outside the
tomb which tradition points out as
the tomb ot Ln/arus. while thi-
'Raising of the Son of the Widow- ol
Nain' was taken outside of the Damascus gate. As I moved forward
among the people to take my place In
this scene UM women in tlie crowd
bent forward to kiss the hem ot my
garment All through Uwy appeared
to regard mc as a being apart, and it
would he strange indeed it my rxper-
imre had not taught me In a wa«4R-
I'ul and solemn manner what thc stoni
of Christ means to the world.
"The most trying of all thc scenes
were ihe scourging, which was aerially done, and the Passion. I was
laid upon the Cross, whieh was then
pulled over a cross bar fixed to two
vertical poles by means ot ropes. So,
swinging, and without -, band t<»
steady it, the cross was reared to ,»
vertical position, lo fall with a thud
(which shook every bon,- jn my body)
into a socket prepared for it. Afterwards the two malefactors were fixed
to the crosses formed by the horizontal bar and tl.e posts, the bar wan
cut in two and thej were turned so
lhat they faced me.

Editor. Herald:
Dear Sir. Allow me to thank,
through the medium ot your paper,
the writer of the excellent articles
that are appearing on Christian (?)
Science. I admire the clear lawyer-
like way which your correspondent
treats his subject, yet, withal, a devout spirit is manifested. In a railway carriage the other day a working
man spoke of thc great benefit the
articles had been in the small community in which he resides. About
Ibe end of last August in Galloway
a man died. His wife was a Christian Scientist as well as man-}* of her
friends. He ailed for some time but
no doctor was consulted, liis relatives
being sure that he was [(Hting or going to get better. Outsiders saw
that lhe man was sinking, and, burning with indignation, sent for a
doctor on their own responsibility,
lie came and hurried the poor man to
Cranbrook hospital. But it was too
late, He dird a day or so after his
Sir, thc responsibility ot that
man's death lies at someone's door.
It is an absurdity to say "give
everyone freedom in religious matters" If that,freedom involve culpable
neglect of the. sick as the incident
just cited shows! Would we give freedom to a Chinaman to throw outside
of his door a newly-born baby girl
bccauRo his religion permits it?
Would we in British India today allow a native to throw bis child into
the (ianges because liis religion permits it? or, would wo permit the
Melencsians of Australia to kill thc
wife when her husband dies that she
might accompany her husband in liis
shadowy wanderings just because
Iheir religion sanctions It? Nay! We
are not healb/ns that we should sanction such practices. Yel under the
name ot Christian Science the sick
are often left to die because their
faith will not allow them to call in
(toil's assistants, the doctors,
When one considers the subject ot
healing he is forced to conclude that
it is not tlie. doctor who does the
healing. He may apply tin* knife, or
he may give tnodlolnes but that is
all. It is our Maker, working
through nature, who docs the rest.
Tho ultimate cure is with Him: the
doctor is but the assistant

thc distance from Portland, Me., to
Key West, Flu. Thc population is
not quite- one-fourth as large as that
of the failed States.
The principal Industry of Brazil is
agriculture, though tin* mines are of
great value. Balem is the lirst poil,

Science Monitor. To lie sure, Wagner never sent the opera to the royal

is exceedingly to the   point that this
Sir Wilfrid Laurier at Jollotto on
the 17th of October touched a vital
point of present day affairs when he
declared that the really pressing business for the government to consider
was lhe abnormally high cost of living iu Canada. "It is not," be said
"llie cisl of dreadnoughts but thc
cost of bread aad lhe necessities ot
life, the high cost of living, that Mr.
Borden should look lo, aad how to
reduce this is the important thing.
While Mr. Borden is trying to regulate the wars of lhe empire, wc, the
opposition, will try lo reduce the
cost of living."
This was met with criticism from
government papers, who alleged that
during fifteen years the Liberal government did nothing in this regard.
One of the first things Ibe Liberal
government did in I89G was to enquire into the tariff through a commission of ministers The result
was the first Fielding tariff of 1807,
when the duty was altered on 140
articles, with such a re-adjustment
as to materially lessen lhe burden on
the consumers while at lhe same
time affording scope for an unprecedented increase in trade.
Then came lhe British preference—a
new not:1 in imperial progress—which
was gradua.ly increased to 33 1-3 per
cent. The immediate result was nol
merely an increase in Imports from
(Jreat Britain; lhe preference forced
every other country doing buslncsi
with Canada lo cut prices in order t<>
meet British competition under the
new tarifl. The benefit was to the

Hon. Mr. Fisher, whioh r.suluil in immense development of trade and general advantage throughout the coun-
11 y.
Efforts were also made towards securing reciprocal trade wilh the
United Slates. The then high tariff
Washington govcmminl received these
approaches iu such manner that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier declared the next
move must come from Washington,
and the Canadian pei pie heartily endorsed bis stand. Ultimately Washington did move, and this resulted in
lhe reciprocity pact of 1011, a proposition directly calculated lo increase trade and reduce lhe cost of
That was defeated by the double
faced campaign of the Tory-Nationalist combination. Now Uu* I'nited
States have abolished the tarilt on
most of the necessities of life (taxed
from 25 lo 30 per cent in Canada),
and reduced their general tariff by 2JS
per cenl. The result of this is tersely put by lhe Weekly Sun, the organ
of the Canadian agricultural interests, as "cheaper for them, dearer
for us."
For two years the Borden government has been in power. II has almost doubled the National expenditures and increased the taxation to
meet its extravagance; il hns spoilt ,
money recklessly on every conceivable,
project until even the present huge income has not boon sufficient, so that
while the government boasts Ot a
(f.H.liim.imo surplus    it is a habitual
borrower in the British financial
market. In the face of all this extravagance and huge taxation aad
the increased cost of living it is announced that there will be no tariff
revision next session.
To this Sir Wilfrid Laurier replies
"If you do not care to do it or think
you are aot able to do it, make way
for better men. We have done it
once and we can do it again"
Since Mr. Owen Davis is the author
of the play, it may be taken for
granted that "What Happened to
Mary" was a g(,l>(l deal. A lot happened to her in each ol the four acts
at the Olympic Sunday night, until
towards lhe final curtain she won
a most estimable attorney Tor a husband, learned tlie secret of her birth,
came into tlie fortune that was right-1
fully hers, and otherwise had a generally joyous half hour, says the St.
Louis Times.
"What Happened to Mary," it is
recalled, was the title ot a series of
short stories recently published in a
woman's magazine, and also of a l"nS
list of moving pictures, whieh on the
screen detailed her adventures simultaneously with their appearance in
the printed page. By this double
means Mary already had become a
familiar character lo many in the
audience, before she stepped upon the
stage Sunday night.
She was greeted with applause, of
course. And Miss Ann Bradley, as
lhe young woman of the title, by her
playing justified   the initial welcome
In Mr. Davis' version, Mary when
an infant had been kidnapped by an
undo, for the purpose of getting her,
out of the way iu order that his own
sou might succeed to thc family estates.
Grown to womanhood, it so happens that she becomes acquainted
wilh the members ol her own family,
although naturally there is no recognition to either side, except in so far
as the wicked uncle is concerned.
lie gives the girl employment .in his
law ollice. Uncle's partner, who is
a man of character, falls in love with
her. When uncle, in a final attempt
to be rid of Mary, accuses her of
stealing a purse, containing $2000.
his partner's faith in her remains Unshaken. Ami finally this confidence
is justified, the mystery of Mary's
[last is cleared up, and everything'
goes well.
Miss .lean Batriipiim, Edward May-
nard and Miss Maud Cooling arc prominent in the cast, in addition to
Miss Bradley. Two ot the scenes
are laid in Moses Landing and two tq
New York.
A new interpretation of the Monroe
Doctrine was given by President Wilson in a speech at Mobile, Ala., on
last Monday. Morality, not expediency, is henceforth to be the guiding
principle ia lhe relations between tho
United Slates and neighboring countries. "I want to take this occasion to say that the United States
will never again seek one additional
foot of territory by conquest," declared the president. "She will devote herself to showing that she
knows how to make honorable and
fruitful use of the territory she has.
And she must regard it as one of tho
duties and friendship to see that from
no quarter are material interests
made superior to human liberty and
national opporlunity."
British Columbia made a notable
success at the Canadian Land and
Apple Show just held at Winnipeg,
winning two gold medals, one for thc
best collection or apples* and the other for thc hest display of natural resources. Tlw apple exhibit was a
carload, containing over thirty varieties. The display of natural resources was perhaps thc most complete ever shown in this country. It
included fruits, grains, grasses, vegetables, fodder plants and various other field products. There was a
splendid display of tobacco from Kc-
lowna and minerals were shown from
every paying mine in the province.
There were forty-three specimens of
food fish of British Columbia and
foresl products were shown from
each variety ot native tree. The
awards were conclusive evidence of
lho wealth and variety of resource of
Canada's Pacific coast province.

Forty years ago he pointed out that
Canada was the third maritime power in the world.
"1 cannot toll you what I feci when
1 lead aim. hoar contemptuous references hy men and newspapers to the
position of Canada. "Mr. Foster,
minister of trade nnd commerce, was
of sound instinct wl.cn be told the
house of commons that he wanted Canadian hone and Canadian blood and
Canadian sinew to go into the naval
defence of Canada. <>n that- vital as-
pocl of defi nee mo many of our patriots haves become dumb since Dccenv-
hcr, 1012. I think it is not unkind
to say thai the departure from that
ambition has been as desperating to
the true spirit of nationality as if it
bad been the work of a society for
the Suppression of Canadian Patriotism.
,rYou surely have arrived at the
very negation or everything that is
essential to true defence when you
find people apparently not asffamed
to lower this country before the
world by belittling its capacity to
defend itself. The latest sample of
that I find, in The Amherst Daily
News, which says: "It takes men,
big, brawny and brave, tn go down
It the sea in ships to ftght the empire's battles, and, fortunately or
unfortunately, our young Canadians
are too busily engage*, ini empire
building to enlist in thc navy." |
"If you can imagine anything more
craven than that you must be familiar with the depths of national tieH-}
pair. Its sting, its shame, is the
greater that it conn-s from tho premier's own province, from a province
which sends thousands of its sons
down into great waters, ami lhat It
was written In a town from whose
heights you can see the roaring tides
ol Fundy fertilising the Intervals
that touch Ibe municipal boundary.
| "This sort of thinu is being said so
frequently tbat one is not quite sure
whether it is the tommy rot of partisanship or the dry rot of a nationality that fears to come to a lull
stature. It is at least a warning
against policies which breed division
and encourage men to say "we
can't" instead of "we will" Nobody wants to see a "Canada Can't"
party nourishing like thc deadly upa
[ tree, which turns a land <f promise
into a desert.
J    "Some   of    our compatriots,   who
' seem to be very anxious about the
figure   we cut   in     the British   Isles,
' may perhaps allow one who has lived
thirty years in such counties as London, Lancashire and Yorkshire, tn
say that if Sir John Willison would
cable lo The Times Um* extract from
the Amherst Daily News as a Bpeel
men of the justification of a couth
button to the British navy some of
the people who have been trying their
best to. obtain tribute from Canada
would begin to wonder whether we
have start<-d on the road which
brought everlasting death io th*
IUmail Empire.
"Thc menace to Canadian patriotism is not confined to this deplorable
tendency. It includes thut singular
movement of men, who have made
money in their native country wfto
have given it no public service, but
who migrate to the old country and
break into politics there.
"They seem to ne the exhibitors of
a cuckoo patriotism. The third menace is the threatened exaltation of
the military over lhe civil power.
That is Indicated by the persistence
with which men, who ought to know
better, attempt to set up the admiralty as a decisive guide in matters of
policy. There hns always been a
school in Britain that would destroy
one of Ihe rocks on which British
liberty is founded—the rock of the
absolute subservience of the military
to the civil arm. If they can induce
thc people of Canada to set up the
admiralty as the god of their idolatry, they will have injected into the
imperial relations a most destructive
element as well as into your civic
"The admiralty authorizes one of
its captains to (ell the people of Can
uda that the admiralty will cooperate with whatever policy Canada
adopts, which means that if ihe admiralty chose it could do the othcr
thing. The captain of a warship
has nn mote business to he/making
political speeches about policy than
llie engineer of a train has anything
to do with the policy of the railway
which employs him"
Mr. Cooper, who followed, explained tlte first plank in tho platform
of the Canadian League, which is to
educate the new-comers as to the nature of Canadian government and Canadian traditions. He pointed out
that this is one of Um* greatest tasks
before the people of both tin* United
.States and Canada, The second
plank is to bring tbe people of eastern nnd western Canada into a common Uanadtonism. It was self-evident
that this is another national duty,
and one whi.h must demand a certain
amount of self-sacrifice and sympathy
from all classes of tlte community.
Tlie third plank is a non-partisan
support of national dmlertaking, particularly those relating to national
Here Mr. Cooper reviewed the situation in Australia and contrasted it
with Canada. He quoted from a.despatch in a recent paper, showing bow
the premier and tbe leader of the opposition both made speeches a day or
two ago declaring lhat the Australian navy was out of politics and
would be freely supported by both
Conservatives aud Liberals. If Con-
ada is 'to maintain her lead among
thc overseas Dominions she must
raise to the same height of patriotism and nationalism as Australia
and New Zealand.
In dealing with thc fourth and
last plank of the Canadian League
platform, "to maintain Canada as a
self - fpverning nation within the
empire," he claimed that this plank
was founded on the philosophy of Sir
John Macdonald. When Sir John
was planning Confederation and framing the Briti sit North America act of
18(17 with lhe home authorities he
desired to make Canada a Kingdom.
He wanted Canada raised to the
same status as the I'nited Kingdom,
but the colonial office objected. In the
debate which followed in the Canadian parliiimut Sir John said that
England would look upon Canada as
a friendly nation, and .lit lie
people of Australia would lorm such
another independent frienlly nation
He pictured these friendly nations m
alliance with England and owing allegiance to the same sovereign. Sir
John emphasized tlie words "natl'm"
and "alliance." He had no id.*a in
his mind other than Canada would
have its own flag), its own navy, its
own army, its own customs tariff,
and ta an absolutely free nation in
alliance wilh the other Britannic
Kir John's idea of a Britannic alliance is as valuable today as it was
when he propounded it. He would
bo tremendously shocked at some of
the centralizing ideas propounded today under the guise of imperialism.
Sir John was not the man lo truckle
to Downing street because of petty
likvots, present ot future. He waa   *
sturdy Canadian,  Than   whom    there
bas been none greater
In conclusion, Mr. Cooper urged the
audience to give the objects of the
Canadian League careful consideration, mid if tbey found they could 'approve, to join in spreading thc gospel of a non-partisan treatment of
the navy question and in helping to
breed a patriotism which would keep
Canada a leader among the overseas
Dominions, upon wham depended the
future greatness of the Britannic empire.
Kdmonton, Alta., Nov. H— Numerous new elements, none of which,
however, is political, will enter Into
tl.e campaign of Candidates for thi
mayoralty and five seats in the council at the civic election early in December. The Kdmonton board of
trade is preparing a petition to the
the city for a plebiscite, to he taken
at the same time on these questions;
"Are you in favor of city government by an elective council and
separate appointive pom missions for
each administrative branch of the
city ami a commission (or each of the
city's municipal-owned public utilities?
"Arc you in favor of city government by elective commissioners, including the initiative, referendum anl
"Are you in favor of the present
form of city government, by an elective mayor and council and appointive commissioners?"
11. Milton Martin, ex-president of
the Kdmonton board of trade, who
originated the plan of a plebiscite'ou
the foregoing questions, said in discussing the matter nt a meeting of
that organization, that "likely the
majority of our citizens I have nol
been satisfied with the administration of civic affairs. None of us can
say where the blame lies—hut in a
general way the results are anything
except satisfactory. We are not)
receiving full value for the moneys
Henry J. Roche, secretary ol the
Civic Government League, who outlined thc elective commission plan of
government, declared that while it is
not a panacea for all municipal ills,
it would at least insure a business
administration. He added that thc
league has no candidates to foist upon the electors. "Our primary purpose," he said, "is to tell the people
about the commission plan."
Mayor William Short, K.C., author
of the Edmonton charter, under
which <tlie city bas the single tax and
municipal ownetship of public utilities, and candidate for re-election,
energetically opposed tbe plan <>f
government by an elective commission, declaring it would not meet Unpractical requirements of this municipality.
"We have $14,000,000 invested in
our public 'Utilities," he said, "and
the investment is a benefit for the
people. Our chief trouble, now happily ended by the provincial legislature amending our charter, was that
the council whicli engaged them could
not discharge our commissioners
without a two-third vote of the ten
Members'. Moreover, we are now-
settling bills contracted hy former
administrations. Thc commission
plan is a pretty theory—it may work
out in American cities—but It does
not- fit our scheme ot things.
•'Our charter is adequate to requirements, but we must have men
to carry out its provisions. If thc
electors of Kdmonton wilt give me
the right kind of council and commissioners, I'll save them million-;
of dollars every year, f cannot do
it alone, nor can any other man. A
good plan is gocd only with good
The Civic Government League,
composed of prominent business men,
is carrying on an active educational
campaigo, bringing speakers to Kdmonton from various American cltloa
working under the new plan. Mayor
W. .1. Hindley, of Spokane, tired "the
opening gun" at a gathering of 2,800
men and women the nicjht of October
24th, when lie spoke for two hours
amid Uie closest attention.
Out of forty-three baby shows held

The Dominion of Canada ranks
seventh in importance among the
countries of the world as a buyer of
British goods. This was found in a
report issued on tlie subject by the
department of trade and commerce.
It shows, among other things, that
as a customer of the mother country,
Canada docs not stand as high in the
list of other Dominions as eitln-r
Austria or South Africa, both as
which have smaller populations. As
a matter of fact Australia, with a
population of only four and a half

One of the most important announcements lhat has heen made in
Western Canada for sonic time regarding any of ils principal trade
centres is the one recently made by
Mr, l. .1. .Miller, of Vancouver, ofli-
cial auctioneer for both private aud
government corporations, reMirding
the sale at auction of Port Fraser
town lots to be held in Vancouver
November l-'th; Calgary, November
20th and Edmonton, December 2nd.
Mr. .Miller has been instructed by
the principal owners of this new itow»
on the G.T.P. in lhe interior ot Hritish Columbia, to sell at public; auction all of the unsold town property,
including husiness locations, manufacturing sites and residence property, The primary reasons [or this
sale, so il has lieen determined from
lhe head ollice of the interested parties, is to give the public an equal
chance i( secure some of Hie choice
locations at fill ires that are bound lo
make money for the buyers. This is
being done now, to secure funds for
the further development of the town
and surrounding territory. The owners of Fort Eraser, white owning
practically all lhe territory within a
radius (f twenty miles, have contented themselves by subdividing a very
small portion, ibus concentrating tlu*
business interests and causing property in tliis* favored spot to have a
real and intrinsic value, which will
be very materially increased when the
(I.T.P. is finished next year.
Unlike the average townslte own
ers, the Fort Eraser Syndicate and
other large interests have been pouring money into Fort Fraser. In fact,
Ihey have, during the past two years
spent many times the original cost of
ihe site iu Improvements, such
laying out the town, clearing tho
land, the making of streets, grading,
railway station and yards now.under
construction, in building lor government headquarters and other
quisiles so necessary in the making
of n big, new town, thus showing
their absolute, faith in its luture nnd
tlieir determination to make Kort
Fraser   II.C.'s greatest, interior city.
The funds received from this sale
will be largely used for the further
development or Fort Fraser. Al
ready al t $K0n,uuu has he-en invested in 'Fort Fraser and its
mediate vicinity. This represents
principally English, Canadian and
American capital,
A new company has just lum formed to in* known as the Fort Eraser
Industrial Corporation, with an authorized capital of three million
dollars, which has for its object the
development of Fort Fraser industrially and lhe harnessing ol -arge
water powers in ils near vicinity.
This all goes to show that the
foundations have been well laid at
Fort Fraser, which is situated in
the very center ol II. C.'s greatest
agricultural district.
A Utile money inivi-sted at this
auction sale should bring splendid returns when this new city is opened up
to the rest of the world by the completion; nf   ihe  new   transcontinental
The terms of the sale have been
made so as lo be within reach of
very class of purchaser. One-fifth
ash and the balance in one, two,
three and lour years.

When W. Irving Thomas started his
career, he intended it to be scholastic; but at the end of his lirst year
in high school teaching lie exchanged
the dominie's gown for the sheepskin
chaps'o! thc eowpuncher, and went t
work for Pat Hums. Among his
fellows, he says in November Canada MoiHlily, was an Irishman named
O'H-ara, fresh from the oiild sod, and
unused to prairie ways. Tlie other
cowboys promptly look advantage of
his verdancy, and entered into an impromptu contest lo sec who could
tell ihe most hlooilcurdling, hair raising yarn about prairie hobgoblins,
and nijiht-walking spirits oE Indians slain in old tribal wars. One
fellow was quite thoroughly convinced
tliat O'Hara had encountered tl.e
spirit of an old chief of the Stone
Indians, noted for bloody atrocities
in thc torture of captured enemies,
who has been killed while attempting
In get water at the spring during a
battle with thc white men of a
wagon train whieh bad camped then*
when thc first settlers came to Alberta. O'Hara was noticeably affected. The cewpunehers observed
that he did not go back to get liis
hat nor to fill his water palls for
morning. Thc prairie wh'ieh had
been to him a vast empty loneliness
which inspired him with nothing hut
tho fear that he might get lost in it,
now began to be peopled by his imagination with a host of ilreadful
creatures. As daylight laded into
night, llie uncertain light transformed
moving objects in the distance Into
veritable confirmation of the* worst
things he had imagined. O'Haru's
experience and the cowboy's fiction to
which be eagerly listened, made as
marked an impression on the negro
teamster as* it did on O'Hara.
It was too good an opportunity to
miss. The boys took counsel, and
found the skeleton of a buffalo,
bleached in the sun till it was as
white as chalk. Tbey attached the
bones to a slake St, that when it wns
driven into the ground the remains of
tlie buffalo looked like the skeleton of
a huge man or devil if one took tlte
horns into account.
That evening the cowboys were
amusing them selves by burling at
each other whatever came handiest
when a boot fell, plunk, into thc
drinking water; at once a clamor
arose for fresh drinking water.
"Go on wid ycz," said O'Hara, "ef
yea will Ik* after dirtin' the wnthcr
ycz can drink it dirty." Hut the cow-
punchers, to a man, set up a howl
lor water ami O'Hara had learned
that when they vere a unit in any
demand it paid to concede to their*;
wishes. However, he induced Sam
to go with him. In the meantime
the skeleton had heen set up in the
turn in the trail where O'Hara hail
his former experience with the ghost
of the Stony Indian. The eye sockets of the skeleton had lieen rubbed
with matches till they glowed with a
cold fire. As O'Hara and the negro
turned the bend in the trail, the
whte, fiery eyeft skeleton suddenly
confronted them. Tliey dropped t-ln*
palls and gripped each other in an
embrace of terror. They froze to
the spot, utterly unable to move till
something touched them from behind; ns they looked around, a huge
dark creature, resembling a man,
towered above them, lire nnd smoke
Issued from its nostrils, eyes       and

mouth. Tiny were worse than between the devil and tlie. deep sea,
they were between two devils. With a
whoop thai only a negro can utter,
Sam bounded away across the prairie
like a coyote, O'Hara doing bis best
to keep up to hint.
When they finally discovered that
nothing was following them and sank
down on the grass exhausted. In the
direction of the camp, they heard the
uproarious laughter of the eowpuncher s.
