A mnn Riving bis name as WilliamT.
Vangordon appeared in Crailbrook last
night and told a strange stot y, partaking
of weird ness stich as is seldom beard
out fide of novels or seen except on the
spectacular stage, aud which, if true,
makes the place he has discovered as
fully entitled to the name " Death's
Vale" as Is that desert region In California, of which such glowing stories
have been told of fabulous gold mines
therein existing as to have lured hundreds of fearless fortune-seekers and
prospectors to a horrible death.
Death's Vale it surely is, if Vangor-
dou's story is true, and he looks aud appears in manner a truthful and straight*
forward matt, and in his narration of the
gruesome scent he witnessed he impressed the few who have heard it as a
man who is telling the truth; so much
so that a small party of experienced
mountain men was immediately formed
to return with him to the scene—about
six days' journey from Cranbrook, be
says—and left early this morning to view
with their own eyes one of the greatest
mysteries nature ever revealed to man.
Vangordon* conld not geographically
exactly describe the location ef his discovery; he said he was a stranger in thi*
section, having recently csme from Colorado, and Httle more than three weeks
ago he left the Knslo country, striking
off easterly and a little southerly into
the rugged Selkirk range, thinking he
would traverse a country never before
Old-timers say he undoubtedly gol into
such a region, as that part of tlie Sel-
kirks is but little known to anyone unless it be to a very few. of the hunters of
the early days of thc Hudson Bay company.
Seven day* ago, Vangordeu says, he
had come over the lower end of a mount*
ain Into the mouth of a wide gulch
which, looking-upward, seemed to narrow as it penetrated the mountain, as is
generally the case with gulches. He observed that the vegetation diminished
as the heat, of the gulch was approached
and at a distance of a half mite or more
away there seemed to be a missive gray*
ish white wall raising to great height,
almost perpendicular, the wall being
semicircular or concave, apparently, in
form, aud from the bottom to the top
i thin, almost imperceptible vapor was
His curiosity wae aroused and he
turned his steps that way. The day was
cloudy and bright by spells, and he had'
not gone tat before the sun shone out
brightly ami the cliff that he was heading for was transformed into a brilliant.
sparkling masses the iun shone' npon it.
Almost at the same moment he descried
nn eagle flying at a great height, and a
•lecond glance showed that the noble
bird hart* been suddenly at tacked hy
something that made bim fly erratically
and at the same lime feebly, apparently
struggling against an uuseen toe until it
finally (dunned downward helpless, turning over and over and over in Ua frightful full until it fell into the basin, aa il
might he tenned.
He pushed along now, much excited,
and the further he wi--.it vegetation disappeared more rapidly until it finally
ceased entirely, and the earth began to
show many bright salt-like crjslals, and
at the same time the entire gulch looked
more and more as though it was leading
tb a vast alkali de\ obU,
He observed, too, that bis feet, while
walking, would raise a whitish dust that
was, although in very minute quantities, quite stifling; and' later it -assumed a strong odor, as bf ammonia—
ao much so as to be almost overpowering. Here, Vangordon says, he was as-
saikd by an almost indescribable fear,
and he says the sights he aaw later, he
veritably believes, made hia hair stand
on end. He says there was a light breeze
blowing up the gulch, and believes tills
fact saved his life, as if tbe breeze had
been blowing strongly he would have
walked right? Into1 what he believes to
be a vast deposit of ammonia, both in
liquid form and salts.
- Near by waa a small butte, about fifty
feet in height, "and from Its top he saw a
pool which seemed to himto cover about
•ti acre of ground; floating-on it* sur-'
face lle'Sa-* the unformn-it* eagle, which
evidently bad been overcome by the
fumes from this weird spot, and fell a
victim to It; the vapor, scarcely dense
enough to be olHwrvable; w**» raising
from this pool, and owing to ita volatility
and large mass was certainly capable of
attaining a great height.
Surrounding the pool, especially  on
tbe cliff side, were a lar^e number of
skeletons and piles of tbe bones of various animals. Like many prospectors
Vangordon carries a field-glass, and by
its aid be claims to hnve distinguished
the skeletons of a number of big-horns,
bear and deer in addition to smaller animals, and the worst of it is he positively
declares that the skeletons of human he
ing* are not lacking.
His theory is that the men and animals
came upon the basin from its higher al
titudes, and that Its perpendicular walls
prevented them from tubs Hog the fright*
ful fumeB until at its very brink, where
they got the full strength or the ascending vapors, were overcome instantaneously and toppled over Into tlie basin-
He stood spell-bound, gtizing at the
awoinspiitng apectacle until he awoke
to a realization of the fact that even
where he stood, with a breeze blowing
tbe strongest of the fames away from
him, he was liable to be overcome; and
be also realized that If the gentle wind
then blowing should cease or shift that
his bones too would be added to those
already in this strange place. Hurrying
away he returned to where he bad left
his pack-horse and resumed hin journey,
" blazing" his way on tbe trees so as to
be able to find tbe place again. At the
end of four days he reached St. Mary's
lake, and then followed the trail down
the river, first encountering Fred Hazen
at hts camp, who directed him to Cranbrook, and who also with bis partner,
Bill Dewar, will form part of tbe party
returning to investigate.
Nature always has something wonderful in store to reveal to mankind at oue
time or another, and while a matter of
this kind seems improbable it is certainly not an impossibility; aud what lends
color to the truthfulness of the man's
story is that he volunteered to lead
"Long" OliverDurge, "Bill" Hamilton,
Charlie Estmere, aud J. H. Pollen to tbe
place without reward, even going so far
as to offer to furnish tbe supplies (which
hia prospecting outfit included in plenty). The party started this morning,
and will be joined at St. Mary's lake by
Fred Hazen and Bill Dewar; they took
with them 500 feet of small, stout liue.
One of tbem will be fastened to the line
and go ahead to the pool; two others
will be fastened too leet to the rear of
him, so if the first falls or shows signs of
being overcome they can drag him back;
and if all three succumb, tbe pack-
horses, which will be attached to the far
end of the line, will drag all three back.
lt la hardly necessary to add that, if
hla story proves true, he will be paid
both (or bis supplies and time, for if a
country containing such vast mineral resources as this is beginning to show,
■nd where so many prospectors are coming in to exploit it aa there now are—if
this country contains such a death trap
as Vangorden describes, -ill possible.
pains should be taken to definitely locate Ita geographical situation and publish warnings far and near, thus, it may
be, saving the lives of prospectors who
have hardships and peril, enough of the
ordinary everyday kind in treasure hunting to contend with, without falling victims to such a terrible fate.
The Mech-Talked of Mclnols-Scott Corres-

There was no opposition at tbe bye

Ex-Governor Melnnis publishes the
confidential correspondence between
himself, D* minion Secretary of Stale
Scott and Sir Wilfred Laurier. While
Ibis correspondence does not offer an excuse for most of Melnnis' conduct, it
plainly shows the interference of the
dominion government in provincial
affaire. It was by Scott's advice, and to
prevent Martin gaining a point, that Mc-
lunis did not force Semlin to call an
immediate session of the house last summer alter Martin was put but of the cabinet.
Scott's letters say the advice Is given
as * friend, but, as Melnnis points out,
Scott was not intimate euough with htm
to offer confidential advice, and it conld
only have been given as the result of an
understanding with the dominion cabinet
In fact, while pretending to keep dominion and provincial affairs separate, so as
to hood-Jriuk the conservatives and prevent their acting as a unit end sweeping
the province, tbe liberal government at
Ottawa has really bulled the strings to
forward Ita own eud.
That Is what the correspondence showB,
and the expose will result in helping to
bring about dominion party lines in tbe
provincial bouse.
The Dedley Buck Concert.
The entertainment given hy this company was'superior to anything ever presented in Cranbrook, aud those who
missed It lost a rare treat. The singers
were encored from start to finish, and
their efforts highly appreciated by all present—so much bo that very mnny expressed the with that another entetaln-
mentbegiveu. Thesiugers are possessed bf remarkable voices, arid it would
take a musician to correctly portray

The Beatoa Bloomers.
The above lady baseball club will be
in Cranbrook Monday, enroute to Winnipeg where they are scheduled for sever-
al names during theeiposition,and while
here will cross bats with the Cranbrook
team. In regard to tbeir ball playing
abilities, It ts only necessary to refer to
one of the many complimentary press
notices given then, from papers throughout Canada and the States:
Manitoba Free Press, Winnipeg: The
Boston Bloomers, tbe female champions
of 'ilu* continent, met and defeated the
Union Base Ball Club of Winnipeg yesterday afternoon at Fort Garry Park, by
a score of 8 to 7. Tbe game was one of
tbe b jst exhibitions of base ball played in
the city this season, and it was very interesting from start to finish. The
Bloomers made no burlesque of the game,
but played a fast, consistent gameof ball,
and will give any amateur team in the
country a hard game. They put up an
excellent article of ball aud wou the game
all tbe way on their merits. Their pitcher is a wonder. Sbe has the action ami
delivery of a first-class professional, and
yesterday she struck out 12 men ofthe
Union team nnd only allowed 9 bits.
Thc attendance was very large and fashionable, and all were well sutibfied with
the game. To-day's game no doubt will
draw a larger crowd, as Ihe girls have
shown themselves to be good all-round
players and their conduct. Is certainly
lady like.
Game will be called at 5:30 p. ax.
Admittance 50c.
The Kootenay Valley Railroad Will Prove a
Blessing In Connection with the C. P. R.
Auolher outlet for tbe products of

appointed superintendent of the compa-
ny's Hue between Bonner's Ferry and

this cily. Tbis is llie road which is to
bring coal from British Columbia to Spokane— the new line which connects the
Great Northern with Kootenay lake at
Kootenay Lauding, and at tlte same place
gives direct connections with the Canadian Pacific. One load of Crow's Nest
coal has already reached this city over
lite road, but although several other
trains have passed over it, it has nol been
used as regularly as Mr. Forest intends
to have it used in two weeks.

laugh. "Ilu spoils cue dr.udfully, you
Lady Curew's lips quivered into an indefinable expression.
"My dear," she answered, smiling,
"beware of   a   husband's   unprovoked
"What do you mean?" asked Maggie,
"Only that the ir source is more often
a guilty conscience thuu an overflowing
"Laura, why will you say such things?
Come, the carriage is ready."
"So am I; but isn't. Brie coming?"
"Not with us; he was lunching with
tho Delaware and sent over for Ilia
things.   He will go with them, and he
goes buck there to sleep."
The two women then took tbeir places
in the snug brougham. It wus u fairly
long drive to Treloar hall, where tbe
Darshin* hunt Imll wus to take place,
but there. Wus absolute silence lu the
carrlogc, partly because, us cousins and
intimate friends, there was no necessity
for conversation between its occupants,
and also because Maggie Fawcett knew
of old that I.udy Carew hated to tire
herself out with tulliiiiR* before the serious business uf the flirting and waltzing begun.
Maggie Faweett'n appearance ut the
hunt ball whs something of an event,
She was the bride of the occasion.
Early in the spring she had urtrrietl
Eric Fawcett, and this waa the. flrst
•winter she had spent on his estate in
Pars hi re.
Now* and then Lady Carew glanced at
hop cousin. Maggie leaned buck in her
corner, tbe white fur of her wrap nestling around ber throat aiui her liiiul
rcwtlng ag-airiBt the cushions of the carriage, It struck her companion t hat the
young wife's fuce was a little pale, and
tbut it wore a look of suppressed excitement, mingled with something
which 'seemed almost like anxiety.
"What can be tbe nuttier with the girl?
murmured Lady Carew* to herself.
"She is evidently disturbed ubout something. How she plays with that bracelet. I wonder—but, no! Maggie is the
best little soul alive; ami, besides, there
isn't an eligible uian within a dozen
miles. Still, I never should have expected Eric Fawcett to have turned out
a model husband;" and she luughed
-softly to herself.
Laura Carew was a good six years
older than her cousin, and sbe remembered very distinctly that at tbe same
ball last year, before Maggie bad
flashed up0n hia Armament, Eric Fawcett hud been her very devoted slave,
ond naturally sin* unl led at the recollee-
tion—a little pltyiu-g'ly, jierhaps, for
Lady Carew <-ould not quite understand
an admirer deserting her for Maggie,
and, though she was fond of her cousin,
she was rather sorry for Eric. Women
generally are sorry for the men who
marry nortf* one el_o.
llut, In -spile of Lady Curew's mult r-
ate estimate of Maggie's powers of ut-
tiruutioli, her card wu_i full l*-f<n<* she
had been in the room ten minutes-us
full, that in. tut ahe would allow it to be;
for she valiantly re-sist-ed nil efforts to
till up two spaces which she Insisted on
Sin- was standing by ber hust>und in
the midst of u group of jH-opli-*. Slit* put
her bund -gently on his arm.
"Erie," she whispered, "J've kept you
two wuIhwm."
"Two!1' and be. laughed as he louki-d
dowu art ber. "Why, little woman, we
eun't dance, together twice—It would be
ridiculous! llen<, I'll tuke this one. 1
don't suppose you'll bave any dilllcuilty
in tilling the other; you'n: looking very
pretty ito-ntght, 1 must go, deur; tbia
Is my dance with Luura."
Moggie Pawoett bit ber lips. She
wouldn't have minded people seeing
that she was in love with ber husband
and that she thought him the h-nnd-
somest man iu the room, but men were
different — very different — nnd Iut
heart swelled as a rush of memories
came nj>on her. She answered her partner's not very abaiinu* remarks mechanically. It was doubtless bad form,
but ber eyes sought her.husband's fig-
■ure; he was waltzing wilh return—it
seemed to.her that lie wosqlways wait*-
Ing with Laurn. Uut, then, por heps
Eric might Im* thinking the Kit me thing
of ber, for-she had certainly danced a,
great many times witb this Mr. Dobson
—Dodson—she wiw notat allaureof hia
name, und she really did not cure at ull
who was her partner. The Dnrshire
hunt bail was not amusing, she thought,
ond It was a little embarrassing that so
many peop|« noticed and admired her
banifle; she touched it dbllblCully,
twisting it on her arm so that the diamond flafelied in her eyes. It was very
pretty, but—

"Not half so much ai I am." replied
Eric, with a laugh. "It U quite like old
times, lsn t it?"headded, drawing alow
seat (orwardforhiscompaalon.
"0, my dear Erie, don't try to be sentimental! But, really. I begin to think
my warning to Maggie was not uncalled-"
"l-_h!  What warning?"
"Well, it rut her seems to nu* th-.it the
Old Adam te returning, my frlenili that
domestic joys are palling, and forbidden fruil ia becoming terribly attractive."
"Is thut u challenge?"
"Not ut ull; besides, Maggie is my
ci usln and my friend, and I lliiuk il te
right to warn Imr."
"Are you in fun or lu earnest? What
ilo yoit mean by warning ber?"
Lady Carew broke Into ft laugh.
"(It\ly that 1 told her to beware of a
husband's presents -that a magnificent
diamond and emerald bracelet often
meant more than un-i the eye, when ii
was bestowed appi'posduhottos."
"Ileally, 1 haven't the slightest Idea of
what yuu mean."
"Mean? Why, the lovely bangle you
gave, her yesterday."
"1 gave Maggie a bangle yesterday?"
"Certainly. She is wearing it tonight."
"You must be dreaming."
Lady Carew looked at her companion's face with frank nstonishment.
"1 am very sorry," she said, quietly.
"1 um afraid I have been indiscreet; bail
how was I to guess? 0, what are yuu
going to do?"
Far at that moment Mrs. Fawcett
entered the conservatory on the arm of
her partner, uml Ertu ImnietUn.oIy arose
to his feet.  Luura caught bis arm.
"Eric, don't be ridiculous, it. is some
absurd mistake! I'll take that man
away. Speak to Maggie, but for heaven's cuke don't look like that."
Hut. in spin* of Lndy Cnrew'i efforts,
it was not an easy thing* to "lake that
man nway:" aud while the futile, frivolous conversation rippled on, Eric stood
by, bewildered and stunned. Maggie,
lhe son! of truth and simplicity, hnd
told a lie. There was not the faintest
doubt that Uuirahiul spoken the truth,
aud spoken it without arriere-pensee.
The stones of thc mysterious bracelet
glittered maliciously before hlseyes.and
yet, bud not his attention been drawn
to it, most probably be would not have
noticed it. The details of any olli-ir
woman's dress wen* always mure obvious to Erie than those of his wife's,
and Maggie might have presumed on
But Magglcl lie was very much In
love with Imt when he married her, but
be was uncomfortably conscious that ho
bad paid very little attention to her1 of
late. Hut then Magpie-—who would
have dreamed —
At last lhe music stini-.lt up, and Lady
Carew led oil the Intruder, having succeeded in persuading him tliat his calculations wore out, and that it was precisely Ihis dance she hud given him.
Maggie rose too, but her husband
laid his hand on her arm.
"No, stay hero, 1 want to speak to
"I can't help engagements or anything else.    I must speak to you now."
"Whut is it?" asked Maggie, looking
up at him. "Why, Eric, what is the
"1 wish to know who gave you this
The color flew over Maggie's throat
and face, and her lips trembled.
"I—I win't tell you."
"So 1 suppose, or you wouldn't have
lied to Laura Carew about it."
There wuh something so   pathetic
itUnit the girl's expression lis his name
burst from her lips—she looked so
rhildi-iii, so helpless, and so miserable
—that tho anger in Eric's heart died
suddenly, A whole world of thoughts
surged up ia his mind. Why had he
left this child so lonely.' The fault
was his. ".Magpie, dear," ho said, gently, "I know I've not been ns 1 ought lo
the best little wife in thc world. I've
set you a bad exauiple, and yuu an*
•*o youug you dun't understand things

"'1' —• O, Krie, I'm ashamed!" und
she turned Iut face away,
"Tell  me, dear."
There WO-B a moment's puttse. :
"Well, 1 bought it myself."
"VeS, O, dun't think I want to blame
you, Eric, but the other women I know
were always having presents from iheir
husbands*—(lowers and sweets and
trinkets—uml so us you iim you did not
think of them, I bought them myself,
and said you'd given them tome—"
Erie held her at arm's length, She
raised her face suddenly and looked at

Suspended by one foot over n precipice loO feet Ulgll, With nearly ult the
blood lu hte body congested lu his
bead, James JoliUBon, u negro, .4 years
old, hung throughout a cold aud
gloomy night from a cliff near St.
l.ouis, below which rushes tbe tawny
.Mississippi. The special Providence
which is said to watch over drunken
men snw to it that wheu Johnson
stumbled upod the verge of the bauk
his foot should catch in a chance loop
j of a barbed wire fence. Tbo obstruction had beeu placed there years ago
lo prevent suoh us lm from pluuging
lo destruction. The fouco posts were
ohl nud some of thein rotten. Though
-Johnson twltchdd and Jerked to loose
himself, freedom would havu beeu the
freedom of death, mid llie wire uml
tho post Doit (o bis foul held securely.
It was agonising to hang there, but it
was hot dentil.    Still llesb nml  blond

money In rum nml then started to walk
back to the city, llo bud been sick,
nml early In the ovcillllg he Iny down
in the rain upon n pile of boards near
a hOUSO tbut Btnnds ou the top of ttie
bluff. Finally be got up and lurched
along, uncousclous of tbe yawning
chasm only a fow rods nwny. Suddenly his foot caught lu a barbed wire
tbst ran close to the ground, nud he
wns flung headlong. It happened to
be n loop thnt tripped bim, nnd be fell
over tbe edge. Tlie wire twisted bis
body nrouud so tbnt bis bnck was
against tbe cliff. The wire tightened
about bis aukle and then sagged. The
shock of the fnll sobered him partly,
and he twisted and turned to get loose.
His finger tips could just touch a ledge
of rock, but be could grasp nothing,
f bough he could relieve the weight of
his body somewhat." He could uot we
in the murky night, but below he could
bear the swishing of tbe river.
Tbo granite cutters In the quarry

force, entered the quarry and went to
a shed to put on bis working clothes.
He happened to look up and could
hnrdly believe his eyes when he snw a

Advice wns plenty, but deeds were

Tlie Lona Re&t of
Dunham Creer.
For Hi-vend duys be bud been bothered
wiih a dull headache.   His bones ncbed,
tun,   niii]   there   were   mipl.-usiint   Spots
floating across bis eyes. A feeling er Impending danger seined upon liim. He
laughed ut bimself in vitin. Hu conld
not shake it off. He wasn't homesick,
There mun no place that ho eould really
call home. True, there wero pleoty of
friends in New York who would ho glad
to welcome liim and cheer turn up, hut he
lingered on iu Cleveland. There worn
friends iu Cleveland, too, whu would
throw wide their doors tu liim. Yet ho
Ktuiil on at the hotel.
As the duys wore nlong the tired feeling increased. He lost his appetite. Every exertion was distasteful,
"I need n good rest," he muttered to
his reflection in the glass. "That's whnt
ails me."
His father, be frequently reminded
himself, wns somewhere on the Pacific
const on nn Important business errand.
It would not dn to nnnoy bim with such
trifles as nn nttnek of blues. It was out
of tho question. And yet be thought
about his father a good deal.
Ou tho sixth day he awoke to find the
mom revolving around him.
"I'm going to bo ill," be suld.
When the room quieted down a little,
he arose and dressed himself witb great
cure. It was a slow and somewhat
painful process,, but it was finally accomplished. Then he put his belongings
in hte valise.
"Let me sec," he murmured to himself.
"I must face this dilemma squarely. I'm
going to be III. That's certain. 1 dou't
want to be ill here, and I dun't wnnt to
go to n hospital." He shuddered slightly. "Never did like hospitals," he added. He shuddered again and went on:
"Must go out and find some place to be
III. No time to lose. Don't want to be
ill in tlio city. Country is tlie place.
Quiet, plensnut view, wholesome fare.
Country by all means. Ho arose a little
uustendily nnd, picking up his bag, cur-
rind it down to thc office, where he paid
his bill. Then ho wandered out of tho
hotel nnd up tbe street, and, lo, when he
reached the comer n suburban enr was
approaching! fto climbed aboard and
rode until the city, with Hs rattle nnd
■imokp. wns left fnr behind. Then lie
foit tbnt be had gone far enough. He
alighted beneath a great elm tree and
snt on the littlo bench at its roots for
s moment to look about nud get his
bearings. There wns a double row of
elm trees stretching nwny before bim.
There were cony looking houses on either
side of the smooth highway. There were
limiting fields spreading tn right nnd left:
there wns plenty of blue sky to cn**.e
upon, nud low down on the horison there
were blue hills. He looked about und
nodded his bond with satisfaction. Then
he picked up his bag and moved nlong.
He did not go far. The tields in tlio Into
spring sunshine suddenly took on a veil
of glnmoar. and tin* rows of trees march-
oil toward hlm uustendily.   Ho turned
abruptly nnd walked Up the slope toward
a neat cottage in whose doorway stood n
womnn. She was perhaps (10, with n
gentle, motherly fnee nnd soft gray eyes
that looked down upon him curiously ns
be enme toward her.
Dunham Greer stopped and took off bis
"Madam," bo snid in his courtliest
tones, "may 1 rest in your cottage for a
few moments?"
"Ccrtaluly," she answered, with a quick
smile, though lier face crew anxious as
ho dropped henvily in the ensy chair she
pushed townrd bim. "You are not well,"
she added.
"I nm not strong," he snid. ne
paused a moment nnd looked about him.
Then he smiled nt the scrupulous nent-
ness »f the iin-ilef-t household effects,
The smile grew softer ns bis gaze rested
on the woman's sympathetic fnee. "Mnd-
nin," he snid, "will you take me Into your
house ns n guest? Wnit, please; let mo
explain. You nre a paragon of housekeepers.    Are you n nurse as woll?"
She fell In wiih bis mood at once.
"Yes," she nnswered.    Her eyes grow
moist.   She a roso hurriedly nnd brought
him n little glass of hutneinude eordiul.
As she handed it to him she gently pushed back the bnir from his hot forehead,
nnd In* looked up nnd smiled at the soothing touch.
"Oan you spare roe." iho nsked, "while

"Doctor?"  he   echoed.    "I   hnd   quito

out his hand. The doctor's fingers closed
oral It aud held it fast, bis keen eras
searching the face of the youug man.
Then he frowned.
"You should have been iu bed a week
ago," he growled.
"I guess Hint's right," snid Dunham
drowsily. "Boon walking around lu my
sleep, I think. Couldn't find thc light
■sort of lied. Novor do to be ill In a hotel,
you know, and hospitals are quite— quite
out of Hie question."
The doctor looked around. The motherly faced woman stood ot tho foot of the
"The room Is rendy, doctor," she snid.
Ton minutes later Dunham looked up
from his cool pillow with u deep sigh uf
"You'll tnke tho case, doctor?" ho nsked.
"I'll tnke the case."

fcp, it wouldu't be fair to father t" neglect any points thul mlghl aid in my recovery. I'm his only child nnd owe him

"I'll do my best, my boy," snid the doctor gently,   "Who is yuur father?"
"That's whnt I wnnt to get at," said
Dunham, with n little effort. He wus getting drowsy ugciu.   "Iu the breast i k-
11 of my coat yuu will find a sealed envelope with all tbe particulars you need.

"Yon can trust me." snid the old man
ns he stooped and laid his cool fingers on
the buy's hot wrist.
"There i*; some money in the pocket-
book," continued Dunham, "nml I want
the lndy lo tuke that uml mo it ns she
thinks best," He ponied u moment and
with an effort collected his thoughts

faintly, with tho ghost of u smile, "is—

ped down.    The feeble voice ceased.
"You'll get it, my boy," said llie doctor grimly.
There was a robin piping in ihe poach
tree,  au  Insistent  robin  Hint  piped  in  u
way thut brooked no contradiction. Wns
ho culling somebody? A waft of summer uir came in through the open window, a gentle breath that lightly moved
ilie straggling locks above a white forehead, that kissed lhe heavy Mils that
trembled above the tired eyes. Was the
robin culiiqg?
The heavy lids struggled upward.   The
tired eyes looked forth. They saw a
long bluo veined hand that rested on tho
coverlid nnd clasped closely another
hnud, white uud thin. The eyes traveled
slowly from tho band upward along the
coat sleeve, higher, higher.
"Why, father!"
"My boy!"
The clasp on the white hand tightened.
The boy could not return it. Uo could
only look up in his father's faco with a
happy smile.
"Huw long has It been, father?"
The father hesituted. Another face
nppenred nt the bedside. Another gentle
hnud pressed his. Tho face ' was. the
rugged face of the country doelor.
"A littlo talk won't hurt bim, Mr.
Greer, not if you do the talking."
The father bent lower.
"Six weeks, my hoy."

It was the gruff voice of the old doctor
that answered.
"I carried out your Instructions to the
letter," he snid. "I telegrnphed to your
father the very dny you enme. He hustled here with his private car und Ids
big Now York doctor. The big doctor
paid me the compliment of staying Imt a
day or two, but for live weeks your father has scarcely left your bedside."
"Denr father!" murmured Dunham, "I
know whnt this sacrifice meant to yon."
"My boy," said his father slowly, and
his voice wns broken. "I've found out
there is something dearer to mo than
money getting. I didn't know bow much
you were to mo until 1 saw you lying
helpless here. We have drifted too fur
apart, my son. Wo will keep close together hereafter, As soon as you ean
be moved I have planned n little trip to
thc south of France, and this gruff old
country doctor is going with us. Tells
me be hasn't hud n real vacation in -10
yeurs. We'll give liim a year's outing
that'll knock a dozen years from his tired
olil shoulders." And he chipped Ins hand
affectionately on the old man's arm.
The doctor growled Inarticulately.
Then he grullly snid:
"Sec here, my friends, this palaver has
reached the safety limit.   Cut it short."
"And the good Samnritnn woman who
took me in, fatherV" murmured Dunham,
"She hasn't belied hor character for a
moment, iny hoy. She is well and happy nnd thankful becuuse you uro getting
well. Nobody will be forgotten, Dunham.    There, you must lie quiet uow."
Dunham closed his eyes. Ho was free
from pain. He felt the warm clasp of
his father's hnud. He wns quite happy.
A faint smile curved Ids pallid lips.

hnd never known what it was to be

oud worked on my farm every duy until some mouths uro, when I wus taken
with severe paius iu my buck aud

these famous pills, I thought that what
they hud done for others lhey might do
for me. I procured a box Irom Mr. E.

before I had u-ert quite one box I hud
improved. When I hud finished a couple
more boxes I felt like a new man and
I gladly tell this for tb- bendit of all
who suffer us I did." Continuing Mr.

I     THE LISTENER,     j
At the club a few evenings ngo Chief
Engineer Kobbins, of the MacKenzie &
.Mann syndicate, related nn incident regarding the "intelligent newspaper correspondent."
Ii seems a number of gentlemen, Interested iu mining in one way orauother,
were discussing, while in Rosslaud, the
thenromiug issue ofthe Spokesman Review's * $1,000,000 cheque," and the fact
that it had offered a prize for a suitable
title and (iesign for ihe cover. Mr
Kobbins suggested, in a vein of sarcasm,
that a filling design for tlie cover of the
b.olc would be a prospector holding a
"shamrock and lyre," meaning that the
Individual iu question often dt-alt in
sham (ore )rock and was frequently a
cheerful liar. The intelligent corres-
pendent stauding hy took in the hint
and forwarded it lo the piper, suggesting a prospector holding a shamrock and
lyre as a fitting design, for ihe reasou
that tbe two articles were emblematic of
tbe average prospector, who was generally an Irishman!
*  *   t ;_
I overheard a gentleman say the other
night lhat be didu't think "Long Oliver"
bad the strictest regard for lhe tiuih, as
be told ihe newspaper man a f< w weeks
ago Hint the mosquitr e-1 at Ilowser
lake were as big as blackbirds and
the prospectors up tbeie often used
them for blackbird pies.
His auditor (I might say it was Hanson, but I won't) replied that he did
not doubt the story in the least, as he
had hnd a practical demonstration of
tbe probability of its truth. He paid
that while going up the Kootenay river
U-o years ago to Wasa he stopped at a
Frenchman's camp at dinner time and
bis host placed before him a disb lhat
emitted most delicious odors and be
partook of it freely, recognizing in it a
well known epicurean viand. After disposing of a second dish, be asked his
entertainer if frogs were very plentiful
in the vicinity, adding that he had
never seen many. His host told him he
hnd seen none whatever. Tbe guest
then nsked him where he procured the
frogs' legs be had just partaken of,
when he was astonished by the answer
that he had dined off mosquito legs.
