Smith—Greenway  Go
at Cumberland
\ 'I'otrjjlit, at   the Ciiinli<>rlanil Hall,
Invent ol tlm li-.no art will havo nn
opportunity ol saving n iaixing content
ol some class, when Silent Smith, the
Lightweight Champion  ol B.C. will
hox Jim (Ireenway ol Courtenay, 10
rounds lor points.
"Silent" Smith who by tho way, in
one ol the most talkative gentlemen in
his proio-sion, and that ia anying a
great ileal, ia one ol the cleverest
lightweights thnt haa been seen in the
province, and his reputation aa a boxer ia well known to followers ol the
boxing gamo and tlm lact that he holds
the I ghtweight title lor B.C. proves
him to lie no dub.
Jim Greenway, while not ao well
known to fight Inn's in thia province is
nover the leaa a mighty likely looking
dark horse, and those who have seeu
him working out are confident that
Mr Smith will have to step renl lively
il he wishes to preserve hia physiognomy intact.
(Jreenway has lieen training under
the supervision ol Wyatt, and when
he steps into the squared circle tonight he will lie in c umition to do his
very beat,
It has been suggested in nome quarters that tonight's main go wai. a luke
but thia report may lie given very
little credance, aa both hoys henr good
reputations and will Ixitli enter Ihe
ring prepared to dn their very heat
ami give thc spectators their money's
An interesting feature ol the evenings progiam will be the Japanese
Broad sword Fencing between I to and
Yuma, consisting ol four rounds ol
three minutes each. The way in which
these experts handle the great two
handed swords is a revelation to those
who have never witnessed nn exhibition ol this kind and is in itself well
worth the cost ol admission.
A boxing in barrels contest will ba a
nother novelty introduced in Cumber
land. Tbis is a leature which has been
triad with a great deal ol success in the
athletic contests ol up tojdate clubs and
has caused lots of fun for the spectators.
Than will be no limit to the entries and
no entry fee charged. A lirst prize of 16
for first and $'.' 60 for second will be
given. The rules governing this contest
are that both contestants bo placed in
barrels arranged so far apart that tbey
ran juat reach each other with their ((loves
which will be 8 ox. iu weight, therefore
eliminating any chance of serious punishment bemg itifleo'ed. Knockdowns or
any part of the b dy touching the floor
puts the ooutesUut out of the  running
Contestants will draw for pla es.
Two lioxing preliminaries to the main
b iut have been arranged, one ol which
Jack Thompson, who is matched to

lour rounds with Kid McKiw.
it is saiil that Cadmiin of this city
vill issue a challenge to the winner of
thc Mmith-Oiwnway contest  to-night.
Silent Smith arrived iu town aa talkative as ever and brimful of confidence
that he can carry away the honors iu his
contest with (ireenway. He was accompanied by his trainer Lee Manson wh
lias quite a rep of his own and challenges

"Providence permitting arid the mouu-

I replied!
The street began at the mouth of the
eauyon and swuggere3 along, u curloua
mixture of Fifth Avenue elegance uud
Roaring Camp recklessness, until it
reached the wide plain—in fact, it probably extended I'clear out to Knnsus."

Every lorni uud Bhade of civilization
mingled horo; tue rich and lho poor md
together in n reality only hinted at
elsewhere1, for tho grout West was look
ed to to bo tho maker of thom all. Ihe
narrow-skirted and expensively plain
tailor-made girl stood side by side with
the buxom bride from the mountains,
all unashamed in hor while shoos and
wedding unary. Tho picturesque cowboy looked contemptuously at tho natty,
self-complacent college youth, bareheaded and with ample trousers rolled Up to
display all of his ankle and most of his
calf. The .splendid 1'our-huiscd stuge,
plunging and earoeining as it drew up
with a flourish, was but little outdone
by tho sixty-horsepower, 1911 model.
It was a pretty good sight, I thought,
as I raised my byes to the Flat Iron
Peaks above us and drew in another
deep breath ol the intoxicating air.
The sandwich man, who had been my
guide, philosopher, and friend, was a
legitimate professional, and he offered
his wares with the same dignified confidence us he did his comments on the
passing show. That youth over there,
he told me, was an admiral's sun. "Aud
he doesn't take much around here on
account of being su 'stuck up' without
much brains to back it." The uext one
was thft'Chinese Minister's sou—"hue

is about the biggest man in this country,
slnco he put in.-that bit of masonry.
Thev sav it is the greatest of its kind
in the world. Big bugs came from all
over nnd said it couldn't be done; but,
you bet, Jim Carlton know wliere he
wus at, and he did it. When Jifa Carlton says a thing goes, it goes some. He
never made but one mistake, and that
was when he got "
My friend was bustled away; evidently someone wus hungry. I didn't mind,
for I was busy watching the loading ot
the narrowguage train and wondering
how the people in the mountains eould
possibly eat so many bananas.
Without hardly knowing how, I was
hustled into the toy train along witn tne
rest, and the little toy engine was puffing uud snorting as it pulled us up into
tho canyon. The train was crowded
with tue genial, jolly croud bound for
the "hills": Eastern capitalists, pro
motors" from Denver, miners dressed
like clergymen and clergymen dressed
like miner's talking of "prospects" and
"properties with tnat enthusiasm that
makes one feel that luo is worth living.
There were women, too, returning to
their mountain homes loaded with bargains from Denver. Ridiculously overdressed with hats covered with white
plumes, far more suitable for an afternoon tea than that smoky little train \
but they gave their wearers satisfac
tion. and that is the utmost that any
bat can do. The "kids" were grumbling that they- eould beat the train, noticeably not Junking any effort, to do SO.
Thero were tourist ladies, oh-ing and
ah-iug, very fearful lest somo rock or
view should escape them,
Crowded into the diminutive seat beside me was a pudgy female, who. previous to hor burial in these remote regions—for her husband's sake—had
moved, a brilliant ornament, in the most
exclusive circles of Oppeka, Kansas. She
explained this—and muoh more—during
tho windings of our six-mile canyon
1 caught occasional glimpses of the
walls of granite rook on one side, and
the foaming rushing mountain oreek on
the other; ttio fragrant odor nf the riot
of blossoms filled mc with longings to
see Die wonderful display of wild cherry, hawthorn, and blackberry that overran everywhere; but after a few vain
efforts, i'tmw it was no use, and resigned myself with patience to hor auto
biographical outpourings,

mv neighbor said. "It is a most fas-
elnotlng spot.'but it is fearfully lonely
for w woman-no society. 00 opportunities, and roally no companions for mo.
It .seems terrible to bury one's self so!
The scenery? Oh, yes;'the scenery is
grand, but one cannot ialk to scenery."
Por n moment T almost wished I was
"scenery," but she seemed so genuinely
distressed that I tried to look sympathetic, and she continued:
"I know I should not complain, foT
tt is my duty to go there if my husband
wishes it, poor maul You see, he is
aot fitted for any other life. His work
is up there. T suppose; really, he could
not get work anywhere else, and he
likes it. It is different with me; I have
been   brought   up   differently."
I could see that, and wondered what
chance had led her to marry so far beneath hor. T thought how brave she was
in spite of her rather unheroio figure,
md how clever she must be to keep herself looking like anything nt nil. Probably tno brute of ;i husband doesn't
esrn enough to supply hcr with the ordinary necessities. No wonder, when
*he got ti chance to "i»o below,'' she
let h«r fancy roam and bought that outrageous hat. I would, too, if f had to

never see a bathroom. I wonder which

would liavo aroused sympathy in a graven image.

The canyon widened. Tho train, finding a little level stretch, ceased chugging and pounding for a bit while tlio
"promoters, ' sightseers and "ladies"
scrambled down, on the wrong side of
the car of course, spreading out ou the
hot gravol.
Notwithstanding, or perhaps because,
I huve been looking at those mighty
rooks since 'way back in the 'seventies,
my heart i;> always stirred at the sight
of them. [ am lifted out of myself.
The leaping of my pulses at a sudden
revelation of their awesome grandeur
amounts almost to a physical pain. 1
had completely lost fill remembrnnce
of my lonely little neighbor until I was
recalled by lier voice, a little querulously:
"Here is iny husband, ut Inst!"
I looked around and saw approaching
us a tall, dignified man of nbout fifty
with clear-cut features and commanding
figure, dressed in perfectly fitting grey
clothes aud wearing a light felt hut,
worn as only a man whoso heart aiul
home is west of the Missouri River
knows how to wear it. I recognized
him at once: it was Carlton, chiof engineer of the big dnm aud the hero of
the canyon.
The waiting stage filled rapidly, the
whips cracked, and with n jump aud a
gallop the mules whirled away to the
big dam. Thuse of us bound for Bingham's started on foot. As I turned, my
eyes took in tno hnndsome, erect figure
of the man on the box seat with his
foolisu little wife beside him, J hardly
know which to pity more: the unappreciated mun or tlte woman who wus unable to appreciate him. I realized, how:
ever, when it was tlmt peoplo thought

AFTER some eighteen years of practically continuous work of construction, the Cathedral of St.
John the Divine is so far advanced toward completion that it will shortly bc
used as a church. That is to suy, there
is a choir, structurally complete and lit
ted with stalls, organ, altar, and rere
dos, ami crossing which, being enolos
cd and under roof, will afford seating
space for a large congregation. TOore
are also two chapels.
All of the above, considerable though
it doubtless be, is but a comparatively
small part of the entire projected building. There remain to be done yet tho
nave with its western porch aud towers;
both of the transepts; the four flanking
towers which will occur in the angles
formed by the transepts and the nave
and choir, under which will be entrances
with porches; other chapels and depend

walls of the crossing are only a temporary device, as also is tbe low dome
which roofs it. Whenever the groat
tower is built, this dome will be removed, and. opening thus, made into a
vast lantern with its vault far. higher
up than the present dome.
Let us look nt the condition of the
choir, that part of the building most
nearly completed. The pictures show
what has been done, but it may not be
immediately apparent how much is unfinished, It is to be hoped that when
the building is opened those who conic
within it will bo sufficiently impressed
by what is there to want,more. Hut it
must be realized that the eye of faith,
which is not a universal human attribute, will bo under requisition.
Only a small part of the carving is
done: rough, ugly blocks of stoue appear
over the an lies above the great apsidul
columns, and  also  between  tho arches
that support the organ galleries.    The
mouldings of these arches are left in
the rough, as are many of the capitals,
The car vine of nil  these parts is just
,s much a calculated part of tho har-
ilOUy of the design as any other of its
lenients,    These elements  include  im
port ant fields of color treatment in mo
lie, Hie panel in the reredos just, over
ihe altar, tho little round nrohes over
tho great columns, their spandrels; the
le of the semi dome of tlio apse, the
spandrels above tlo- organ gallery nreh-
tne  large arelios above  theso, and
ribs oi tl.e choir vault.   The whole
scheme  is so  planned  that  a  gradation
of   color   treatment   will   lead   to   the
mosaic picture of the semi-dome which
ihould be the culminating point of splen-
lor in the decoration of tho choir.
It is only by the use of mosaic that
we oan be sure of attaining the solid-
itv of texture, tlio sober depth and richness of gold und color thut befit such
large surfaces, and that will hold their
own with the translucent hues of stained glass. And it must lie done ns thc
old work was done, liy the intimate collaboration of the artist nud the crafts-
man, not in the stupid mechanical fashion of pretty much all modern mosaic,
whicli is merely fhe output of a trade.
Wo must have mosaic as sumptuous and
mysterious as those of I.nveuna or Mori-
reale, and if we go about it in tho
right way and take the necessary pains,
they may be had. Xow, tastes may
vary as to color dfeoratinn. but this
choir is so designed that it needs it ns
much as a column needs a capital and
base, and unless it gets it, nnd cefs lhe
host there is to be had, it will be a
lame thing and a byword to those who
know. '
The same is true of the window?..
Thore is purposely too much light now,

glass, and when this is done'the very

greut the progress made, luueh still remains to bo accomplished to give a full

cathedral is purely a mutter of conjecture, in discussing this question it is
commonly remarked that all the great
cathedrals took centuries to build, but
iu any strict sense this is not the ease
Tho great cathedrals of Frauce were
built within the period 1180-1840— sixty
yenrs—oue of tlm most marvellous exhibitions of building energy the world
has ever seen. True, they were not entirely finished, und never will be; the
work suffered all sorts of interruptions:
war, famine, pestilence, fire; and sometimes parts of it fell, as the central
tower of Bourgcs. So it happened that
iu successive periods of time different
parts of the cathedrals wore built, each
in the national and local style of the
But, notwithstanding all these accidents and interruptions, it still remains
substantially true that in those sixty
years these splendid churches were built,
and, iu any eveut, the whole sum of the
years spent upon them in active work
is astonishingly small, especially in view
of Lhe mechanical resources of the Middle Ages, and the extraordinary richness and complexity of the buildings.
And surely, when we see Paris, or
Amiens, Rjuoims, Chartres, Laou, Noy-
on, or Rouen, it is uot uu impression of
unfinished work that we carry away
with us. With the record of the past to
regard, it is hard to believe that our
coin mun ity, with nil its wealth nnd
nergy, its public spirit nnd generosity,
will fail to give, aud to give quickly,
for the realisation of that which, even
though they may not at first sight grasp
its practical utility, is worth while as
the concrete and lasting embodiment

It would rather seem that the groat
question is going'" to be what to undertake noxt: to.the mind of the writer it
should be the central towor. The cathedral is porfectly sure to get its nave
and transepts, its porches nnd vestibules,
and as many chapels as cnn well bc hint
died around it. The pinch is going to
come at the building of the great tower,
which seats nobody and will cost a greal
deal of money. If it is postponed until
the end, it will share the fate of many
other projected towers, and never bi
built. Bnt if it could be built in our
day, there would be a monument hero

Professor Korolatiko, the statistician,
declares as the result of years of collecting evidences from official sources in all
parts of Russia, that 80 per cent, of the
persons, men and women, condemned by
court-martials since the beginning of tho
revolution, died innocent.
Tho Russian court-martials hanged
three thousand meu and women, and
tt these six hundred wero not guilty of
he political crimes charged against
them. In this awful number the mnny
thousa&dl sent to Siberia or other prisons and colonies nre not included.
Neither are included the victims shot
by the vurious "punishment expeditions" sent (.nt bv military authorities
luring the revolution.
And the courl martinis are still in
power. Dnily they demand morn victims. To understand this it must bo
remembered that the Hussian law does
not recognize the death pennlty, Hiich
cun only be imposed on extraordinary
occasions, during a revolt and by the
military revolts.
Korolatiko shows that the military tri-
huiiuls of Hussia do not doforve the
name court, that there is no attempt to
discriminate between guilty and guilt-
loss, and that a person sent before n
court-martial, by that very act, becomes
a candidate for deatn. There is no appeal exeept to the general in command,
unless, indeed. Influential friends brinf*
the case to tho attention of the Czar.
In tne caso of Sub-Lieutenant Piro-
golf the Czar threo times cashiered thc

court-martials. When the man was condemned the fourth timo, his Majesty
asked for all the evidence tnken by the

it had it destroyed. He then made an
order to strike the ease off the cnlen-

fellow's life saved.

Toronto is peculiarly situated for

the most exciting sport on the continent. Imagine'if you cnn, Mr. Novice,
a three-cornered craft propelled by wind

leaping and darting hither and thither
at the command of the helmsman. Granted a careful, nervy skipper and stolid
chap on the mainsheet who will obey

the tremendous speed. Eliminating a

Twelve years of eager experiment
havo passed since Professor and Mmo.
Curie anuouuood the discovery of radium. Almost nt onee reports of the
curative powers of the now mineral
wero published. lias radium, after
twelve years' tests, justified that early
The diseased states in which radium
has been tried range from the most malignant Internal cancers to baldness.
Sueh widely divorso ailments as facial
paralysis, neuralgia, rheumatism, hydro
phobia, indigestion and skin diseases
have beon roported as cured by the
wonderful new mineral. A few years
ago reports of a curo of hydrophobia
iu rabbits presented to the Scientific
Academy of Bologna by u well-known
Italian professor evoked such enthusiasm that it was freely conjectured thnt
the Pasteur treatment of hydrophobia
woulu soon be pushed into the buck-
ground by the uew radium treatment.
Seven yours ago two distinguished
professors nt Konigsberg University
published some startling, results of the
deadly effect the radium rays exert oa
disease bacteria of all kinds. Having
first sprinkled live typhoid bacilli on
a gelatine plate, they exposed the plate
in a dark room to weak radium emanations for forty-eight hours. At the end
of this time it was found thnt tho hncil-
Ii were either killed or their growth was
completely stopped. Similar good results were obtained with the germs of
cholera and anthrax. Those experiments,
emphasizing the pronouneed germicicdai
effect of radium, were looked upon as
opening up a new field of treatment for
infectious diseases of tho skin.
In l.HW a distinguished St. Petersburg
savant announced in various medical
jonrnnls his discovery that certaiu of
the blind were able to distinguish objects illuminated by radium rays'.
The professor expressed the strong
hope that oy further experimentation
with the wonderful element ho would
be able to restore the sight to sufferers
from certain vurieties of blindness.
Thuse published reports were taken
most seriously in German scientific
circles; so much so thut Professor {.reelY
—the principal of the Kye Hospital at
the Berlin University—was iastracted
by .the Prussian Ministor of Mduoiitioii
to go thoroughly into tho Russian doctor's experiments.
The published reports (many of them
in reputatolo medical journals) of apparently authentic cures of deep-seated
cancers, both the onrcinoinntn and sarcomata, by the use of radium, were during tne early years of radium experimentation too numerous to record
Of nil these tuerapeutic uses claimed

Sir Frederick Treves,'in a lecture

up tho situation in a way which should
give food for thought to the goneral
public, who are to-o apt to be led away
in pursuit of vain hopos.

the great concourse of medical mea present, 'that there is possibly a great future for radium in the domain of surgi

They ure things of great expectations,
and sooner or later must be associated
with disappointment."
To return' to tho innumerable curative uses of radium which were tu revolutionize both medicine and surgery,
few uave como up to their earlier expectations. Rheumatism and neuralgia
aro still most intrnctablo ailments, fa
cial paralysis still defies the physician's
Iforts, the Pasteur Institute has not
outgrown its usefulness, while ordinary
germicides nre still in common use, notwithstanding the deadly effects which
radium emanations are known to hnve
un, bacteria. The hope which was held
out to the blind by the Russian expert
mentor was withdrawn with cruel sud
den ness wnen the German eye specialist
who investigated the "cures" reported
that blind persons cannot at present expect the* very slightest help from rndium.
The thousands of sufferers from truo
cancer bolh in Kurope and America who
have let tho time when an operation
might have boon successful drift by,
while undergoing "radium cures,'' coin-
post! one of tno saddest chapters in the
history of this wonderful element.
Radium, as at present used, cannot
cure cancer.
It is a relief to turn from such fail
ores to thc study of those morbid conditions in which radium has a fully
provon practical curative value. Broadly, its greatest successes hnvo been in
the treatment of benign superficial skin
lesions. Disfiguring birthmarks, composed chiefly of thin-walled blood vessels, old sears which have taken on an
abnormnl growth, certnin forms of lupus (a very chronic and persistent form
of tuborclo of the skin), and certnin
types of eczema have been healed bj

good authority, however, that cancerous

too far advanced to admit of operation,
have beon reduced by radium treatments
to an operatic state, where tho knife
could be used with some hope of sue

What the Editor has to Bay.
The question of the taxation of church property was one
that was brought up for discussion during the late municipal
campaign in this city, and in this connection it is worthy of notice that the same question has just been thoroughly thrashed
out by the Council of the City of New Westminster last week
Mayor Lee annonced at a meeting of that body, that be
had been advised by those who had the re-assessment of the
city under their care that the former practise of exempting
church lands from taxation was illegal under the Municipa
Clauses Act.
The buildings could be exempted from taxation, but   it
was expressly stated in the Act that the land occupied must
taxed; this rule however did not apply to lands occupied
hospitals and orphanages.
Mayor Lee stated, however, that the city eould overcome
the law by passing a by-law would have to be submitted to
the people in the same manner as a money by-law.
The Council of New Westminster, it is stated, is not dis
posed to take the initiative in the matter, and for the first
time in the history of that city all church lands will be taxed
this year.
There are a number of members of the Legislature in Victi
ria who are more fluent talkers tban the member for  this coi
stituency, but when it comes  to getting appropriations fron
the Government there are none of them that have anything
on Mike Manson M.P.P.
The appropriation of $85,000 for public works in this di -
trict will prove very satisfactory to Mr, Manson's constituents,

Customs Inspector Marchant lias recommended to the
Customs Department that Cumberland be made an outport i f
Customs, and an Oflicer appointed.
At the last meeting of the Council the City Solicitor
made a very generous offer, to provide the City with an ei
tirely new set of by-laws to replace those now upon the civic
statute books, to the satisfaction of the City Council, and t<
furnish several typewritten copies of each by-law, and all this
entirely without cost to the City.
The Mayor thanked the   City Solicitor for his generosity
and promised that it  Would later receive the consideration
the Council, but apparently the rest of the Council did not realise tin1 value to the city of such an undertaking.
As was pointed out hy the  solicitor, the enst of providing
a new set of by-laws for a city would ordinarily be in tl
neighborhood of 8500.
The present by-laws of the city are iu ii disgraceful stnte,
many of them cannot be found at all, and of those whicli cm
be found muiiy are absolutely useless for the purpose for
which they are intended.
The city solicitor was no doubt thinking of himself to n
certain extent when he made the offer, for it must be rather
trying to a man of the legal profession to prosecute under a
city by-law when he knows the by-law to be as full of legal
errors as a nut is full of meat.
The by-laws that the city have at present have been in
many cases copied from those of cities that are working ntK.lt i
special charter, and absolutely at variance with the Municipa
Clauses Act, and therefore quite useless in this city.
In other cases it is hard to think where they could have
originated, as they are drawn up with but small regard Cor either spelling, grammer or law.
We would suggest that the city give the matter thei
early attention.

The Last of the Bourbons
(By J. Morton Lewis)
f. 1*HE wind whistled down the slopes
f   A    »r Mont Pipet, bearing with it a
flue, drizzling rain.
Simon Vnuvert stood at lho door of
his inn and shook his head solemnly at
tfce weather; then, us tho rain boat upon
has face, he retired inside and warmed
bis bauds before the tiro burning in the
••mptolr. For a few seconds ho studied
ttio fancy forms east by the blaze, thon
r»SQ and shivered. "'Tis miserable
weather for Juuol" ho stud, glancing
around the room as if speaking to tho
shadows. " Miserable!" Drawing a
efcair before tho lire, he took a copy
ot a Paris paper throe days old. from ii
shelf, and commenced rending it.
dune ISii- was a memorable month
for Franco, memorable in many ways.
li was tho wettest summer month wiih-
in tlm recollection of thu oldest inhabi-
Nuiuls, and it was n mouth wherein
■ucli French history was mado. Louis
Philippe had boon deposed and had fled
ta England, and iu liis place hud been
wared anutiler of the Mouupuiies, a man
who neither possessed tho brilliant qualities which marked his uncle nor was
•ven n direct descendant of the "Little
•ftTpnnil" whom all Europe had feared.
Chosen President, hu had made himself Emperor, and already faint niur-
bi ii r.s of discontent wero heard throughout tho laud; aud, coupled with tliein,
tbo wuisper that somewhere iu Franco,
known only to a few, lived the grand-
son of tbo Louis they had killed.
A wave of ltoyalism" swept the laud,
and many were slowly preparing themselves for the day when be should proclaim his identity. No less diligently
woro tho followers of Napoleon tho
Third seeking him, so that they might
ance and for all safelv plaeo their muster upoa the imperial chair. A civil
war—as yet confined to intrigue, but
threatening overy moment to break uut
into upon lighting—existed; nnd somewhere, some said in Paris itself, there
liy hidden the man who held the key-
aoto to the position iu his hand.
Simon Vuuvert read the news with interest. Like many anothor, he was tired of the weak, vacillating man who was
a Bonaparte only iu name, aand like
many another ho hoped that the day
might come when a monarch would
again sit upon thc throne of Prance.
For when the last word is spoken, all

throne upon which his fathers had sat.
80 intent was ho- upon his reading
that the sound of footsteps on the cobbled yard outside the inu escaped his
usually keen enrs, and it was ouly a gust
of wind blowing upon him through tho
open door that told him two customers

Toyed them. There were two men dressed in long military riding-cloaks.
"Mon Bolr, messieurs," he said politely, rising slowly.
Their swords clanked in tlio scabbards
as they wanted across to the lire.
Ignoring his grouting, tho eldor of the
two asked for meat and w'nie; while the
younger, taking off his cloak, shook it
until the waler, rolling uf, hissed us it
fell upon the burning logs.
"You will huve it here?" nsked
"We will havo it here, in front of tho
ire," said the elder.
Simon brought forward a small table
aud laid upon it a white damask cloth.
"You »lo not got many visitors

Simon shook his head. "My trade is
■ mostly with tno viguerons; occasionally
a stranger comes, but not often."
Thu soldier nodded and glanced keenly at him. "Have you had manv lately!"
Simon mnde an expressive gesture,
"But no, the weather!"
For a few moments tho men ate in

Simon leaving thom for a moment, he
turned   to   his   companion.   " We   shall

I (once, which bo broke with 11 question

Simon nodded, wondering at the ilu-
oney of his visitor's conversation, and
wondering, moreover, to what it tended.
"Vou liavo? Then you could not mistake my friend if you saw him."
" Perhaps if you told mu his name?"
suggested Simon,
For a moment the soldier remained
silent.   Then "M'sieu Pon." he said.
Simon s(iook Ins head, "I know no
ouo of that name," he answered.
.The soldier's sturu countenance ro
laxed, and u hnrd smile showed itself
at the comers of his mouth. "No?"
hu answered in a tone that implied
Simon was puzzled. As if to seek enlightenment, he looked around the room,
and his eyes fell upon thu cusumcut,
which stood n little open, aand in the
seeond his gaze rested upon it a shadow

The older soldier roso and drow a
handful of silver nnd gold from bis poe-
kot. "It is time we moved on, Eti-
unnc," ho said, "or it will be midnight
before we reach tho Abbe."
"You will not stop tho night?" asked
"No; we have business among those
who dwell in the valley," replied tho
soldier, and again that hard smile showed itself.
And Simon was not sorry, for though
hu had naked the question from n habit
born of long custom, he had hoped it
would be refused.
A couple of minutes uud ho wns clone,
standing in the middle of the comptoir,
listening to thc footfalls of thc men us
they pnssed down tho hillside, aud wondering as to the identity of the M'sieu
Fou for whom they had asked.
"Ma fni," he snid, "1 um glad they
did not stop the night! Me was an evil-
looking man the elder one."
Then he picked up the paper agaiu
nud continued reading it where ho had
left off at their entry. Me continued for
some twenty minutes; then again foot-
stops upon the cobbled path aroused
The door opened nnd 11 tall man entered, Eto too was clad in a lung riding-
clonk, and his face was almost obscured
by the slouch hat he wore.
"You can give me some food and
wine?" he asked.
"But yes," replied Simon.
"Aud a bed? Good! This is no night
to spend in the open,'/
Me walked up to the fire and spread
out his hands before tho blaze. "Et
might be ueeembcr,, und not dune," he
remarked more to himself than to the
"But yes, m'sieu, 'tis un evil night.
Bad for every one.''
The stranger lrfughed, and he turned
and faced Simon. "You, of nil mon,
should not say that, for it was the
weather which drove me in hore to
"Then I givo thanks," said the old
innkeeper solemnly, "for trade is bad."
As he spoke the stranger removed his
hat nnd cloak, nml Simon stared at him
in amnzument. Thore whs no mistaking
him—the clear-cut, regal features, tho
lightbluo eye, and curly hair.
"You are M'sieu Fou?" he said, not
without hesitation.
Fur a second tho light-blue oyes
gleamed; then their expression changed
to one of amusement, almost mockery.
"To somo men," the stranger repliod.
"Some friendB of yours have been
asking for you, in 'sieu. They went
down the hill to Vienno."
"Somo friends? Ah yes. I saw tbem
—In the distance." flic stranger relapsed into silence as the food and wine
wero placed upon the tabic. Then he
sat down before it, and Simon noticed
that his hands were heavily jewelled,
iilliiiir a glass witb wine, he paused
with it half-way to his lips. "Those
friends of mine may call for me. If
thoy do I um net hore, you understand?
One dues not always wont to seo ono's
"But yes, m'sieu," responded Simon,
The Stranger smiled. "You do not always want to seo your fricuds, eh?"
"Always," replied Simon truthfully.
"I give tbem a good welcome,"
Again thn stranger smiled. "And I
shall welcome them," And whether by
accident or uot, his hand camo iu contact with the rapier hanging by his side,
ho that it clanked ill its scabbard.
As soon ub he had finished he roso.
"You have a private room? I should
like to retire there, ns I have soma business to attend to. And you will kindly

Simon looked at him. There wns a
note of command iu his voice,
"Yes, m'sieu," he said, lind lod the
way into 11 smaller room, separated from
tho comptoir by 11 heavy tapestry curtain.
M'sieu snt down in a chair before
the fire nnd kicked the logs into a blazo.
"You cun tell mo when my friends arrive, but thoy are not to* know 1 arn
Simon bowed, Vague suspicions as to
the identity of his visitor begun to fill
him; and, returning to the comptoir, he
stood in the middle of the room scratching his bnld head in perplexity. Then
slowly trying to reason it all out tho
while, he bognn to clear away the empty
Be lore ho hud finished, a voioo from
within called to him, "Simon!"
"Yes, m'sieu," he roplled,
Drawing aside tho curtain, ho saw
M'sieu Fou standing in the middle of
tho room. Me had divested himself of
his coat, and round his waist was tied
11 large white linen apron such as Simon
himself woro,
"f hnvo taken the liberty of inspecting your wardrobe nnd borrowing u fow
articles. On second thoughts I will
serve tny friends myself just to practise
a little joke upon tuem." Ho laid his
hand ou Simon's shoulder. "A little
joke, you iinderstund."
Ho surveyed himself in the mirror
nbovo the fireplace. "My face will bo-
tray 1110 unless 1 can alter it." Me turned to Simon with a laugh. "You havo
no rouge/"
"I, m'sioul"
The old innkeeper spoke as ono iu a
dream. Astonishment wus giving plnce
to grave misgivings. He felt himself
to be taking part iu a plot, tho depth
and purport of which hu was in ignorance,
"No, thero is too nuturn! a color,
upon your cheeks for you to need to
create ono."
"M'sieu Fou looked around the room,
aud seized a red cloth from off a small
table. Moistening n corner between
his lips, he dabbled it un his cheeks,
then stood surveying tho effect.
"Yos,*' he murmured, "a littlo black
beneath the eyes, and I do not think
thoy  will  recognize  me."
lie bent down and picked np a piece
of burnt wood from the grate, and shaded his eyes with it.
"Yuu have no id1* a how useful amateur theatricals are, Simon," ho said
during the operation.
Then he threw it away, and, turning
around, faced the old innkeeper!
"Mon Dleu!" said Simon.
It was M'sieu Fun, but M'sieu Fou

was lost; he looked n country youth, one
of many score that might have boon

"And now Simon," he suid, "I am
ready for my friendB."
lie sat down again in the chair, and
Simon noticed that beneath his apron
the sword was stilj buckled,
" You know they will como, sire?" he
M'sieu Fou looked nt him quickly. He
seeAied about to speak, ..osituted u momont. then:
'' Yes, Simon, I know thoy will
come," ho suid.
Lighting u cignretto, he crossed his
legs and gaily hummed a light tune, a
love song of Provence, centuries old,
from tho days of the tronbadors and
King Bene. "I hope tliey will uot keep
mo long," he said ouco, stilling a yawu.
"I am tired."
"I ean tell them to wait your pleasure  in the morning, m'sieu."
M 'sieu Fou regarded the innkeeper
"You can tell them nothing of the
sort,'' ho quic kly responded, '' You
will not even see them till 1 bid you."
And he continued humming.
Suddenly ho stopped. His sharp ears
hnd heard something unnoticed by his
companion, the sound of footsteps ou tbe
The door leading into thc comptoir
opened, and the footsteps sounded upon
the wooden iloor.
M'sieu Fou roso aud threw his cigarette away.
"My friends hnve come," he said in
a whisper, a whisper laden with suppressed excitement. Then he drew aside

"M'sieu, m'sieu, what folly is this?"
snid the old innkeeper when it had

Wben M'sieu Fou entered the comptoir the two men were standing before
the fireplace, their backs turned to him.
For a second he surveyed thom, and a
smile Ht up his features, a smile of triumph,
j "Messieurs," he said; and they turned sharply round.
Aguin the eldor man spoke; be was
on most Occasions the spokesman.
"Some wine," he said shortly. "And
where is the man who keeps this inn?"
"M'sieu Simon? He has gone to
"Ah, we mny have occasion to call
him up again."
M 'sieu Fou 'made a low bow, und in it
there was a sarcasm which escaped the
men's notice.
'' Perhaps I can bo of service to you.
I will go and get your wine."
He retreated iuto tho inner room.
,   "The comedy is just commencing,
he suid with a gay smile to Simon, who
stood   trembling  behind    the   curtain.
"Two glasses of wino for my friends."
He returned with thom to tho comp
toir, und laid them down upon a small
table before him.
"You have boen here before to-night,

The two men lookod at him, Ktienno
nonchalaotly, the elder one keenly, his
eves scrutinizing him beneath their
snaggy brows.   ■
"You woro inquiring for a friend of
yours, a M'sieu Fou. He is hero now,
but he does not know that name."
The men leapt to their feet.
"Where is hef" criod Etienne.
Tho other laid a hand on his shoul
"Gently, mon ami," he said. "If ho
does uot answer to that name, how do
you know he is the man wo seek?"
"From tno description you gavo to

and frowned.
"We should wish to disturb uo man's

"No, m'sieu?" said M'sieu Fou, and
there wus a tentativeness in his tones.

"Simon," ho snid, "my two friends

"I will, m'sieu."
"Pardon 1110, wc will."
Tho innkeeper lookod at M'sieu Fou,
thon without further comment gave u
barely perceptible shrug of tho shoulders and led the wny to the floor nbovo.
The stairs opened on to a largo landing. At the far end was a heavily curtained window, through which tho moon
shone, The dull, ceaseless patter of the
ruin upon the glass sounded dreary in

one side, opened one ot the doors und
peered inside. Tho candle which Simon
carried cast long shadows across the
"This will do for my friends," said
M'sieu Fou; "I trust the bed is well
aired and the sheets uot dump."
"M'sieu " begau the innkeeper,
whon M 'sieu Fou stopped bim.
"I was only jesting, Thoy are soldiers, and often lie like dogs.''
Simon looked at him, his rubicund
face expressive of his uncertainty us to
the gist of tho remark.
M sieu Fou gripped his nrm.
"Yos," ho said, as if for emphasis,
diurs, and often lie like dogs."
Then uo crossed the corridor and opened a dour which faced the one lending
into the room tliey had just left.
"And I'm supposed to be sleeping
here to-night."
"Supposed to, in 'sieu." ■
Simon spoke und moved as one in a
"Yes, supposed to. J shall spend tho
night behind that curtain."
The Innkeeper followed the direction
of M'sieu Fou's gaze, and shook his
head  mournfully,
"1 do not understand," he said,
"No," responded M'sieu Fou cheerfully, "not yet; but you will iu good
time." Mu entered the room, and bent
over tbe bod. "You might bring that
candle a little nearer, pleaso, Simon,"
ho said.   "Thank you."
Ho manipulated the pillow nud bolster, and with the aid of a large curtain
ho discovered in u corner made it resemble the figure of a man.
"That is supposed to be mo," he
snid when he had finished. "I possess
the objectionable habit of sleeping with
my heud beneath the bedclothes."     /
Thon he went out into tho corridor
again, followed by Simon.
"And if you spend tho night behind
thnt curtain," ho said, "what do I
"You can go to sleep ns usual, aud
forget nil about it."
"M'sieu, 1 cannot go to sleep; I cannot forget."
The look of despair on his face was
comical, und M'sieu Fou laughed.
"Theu you must stop in your room.
If I choose to play a practical joke on
my friends it is no business of yours,
nark," he said a second later; "they
are calling me!'.'
From the ro'om beneath came the
sound of voices.
M'sieu Fou  hurried downstairs.
"Messieurs?" he said apologetically.
"Where have you beon?" suid Etienne. "We have been calling you for
tho last five minutes."
"I nm sorry, m'sieu. T have bcen
getting your room prepared for you."
"Ah! nnd now you can take us up
to it?" ho asked.
M'sieu Fou bowed, and led tho wuy
up the stairs. On the lauding ho flung
open the door, and stood holding a candle high nbovo his bend, lighting them
"And our frond's room, you say, is
tho one opposite?"
M'sieu Fou pointed to the door.
* * Sut yes, messieurs.    Hon nuit!"
The elder mun nodded curtly, and
shutting the door, locked it. M'sieu Fou
smiled softly, nnd looked at the closed
door for a second. Tnen he crept down
the corridor and secreted himself behind thc curtain.
Below thc frame of the window wns
a broad ledge, on which he soatod himself.    .
" 'Tis not so bad!" he muttered. 1
have slept in worse places within the
last six months. A king without a
throne is like the proverbial beggar—he
cannot be a chooser."
Then, lighting a cigarette, he looked
out of the window. The rain had ceased, and the moon was at its full height,
flood!np the slopes. Tho trees were
bending to and fro in tho gale that had
arisen, and in the near distance the
ruins of the old .Roman theatre loomed
dnrk amiust the folinge which surrounded them.
M'sieu Fou gazed at it for some moments; then he drew out his watch.
"A quarter past twolve," he said.
He rose and took off tho white apron,
and, moistening a corner with his lips,
he rubbed the color from off his cheeks
nnd tho black from beneath his eyes.
Then  he lighted anothor cigaretto.
He hoard tho half-hour chime out from
tho bells 01 the cathedral of St. Maurice in the vnlley, and almost following
it another sound which caused hiin to
leap lightly to his feot and peer round
a cornor of the curtain.
From the door of the room in which
tho soldiers woro supposed to bu sleeping u ray of light shone, nml a second
later ho saw the two men walk softly
across tho corridor and open the door
facing theirs.
Emerging from behind tho curtain, he
drew his sword, and stopping silently
down, the corridor, stood in tho open
doorway. Ktienno was holding a candle,
while the elder man, bending over the
bed, was driving his sword through the
figure  beneath   the  sheets.
"That should lmvo finished him, mon

"Mon Dion!" they exclaimed, ns if

Louis, the last of the Bourbons.
Etienno wns thn first to recover from
his astonishment. Seizing tho sword
from his companion, he rushed upon
M'sieu Fou; but tho latter wns too
quick for him. He parried the blow,
and gavo it n sudden lunge. There is
a certain muscle in a man's body the
severing of which paralyses the right
arm and causes it to shrivel, and M'sieu
Fou know where that muscle was situated.
Etienno gave a scream of pain, and
the sword full from Ins hand on to thu
floor with n clatter,
"You havo maimed me for life!" he
Cruelty was over a trait in the character of the Burboiis, especially cruelly
iu their momenta of triumph.
"And you too, Colonel D'Angeron!"

he cried with nnother lunge.
M'sieu Fou stepped quickly into tho
corridor; and Simon, standing trembling
at tho door of his bedroom, saw him
point with his drawn sword, from the
blade of which blood wus still dripping,
down thc flight of stairs.
A second, and he heard him speak.
"Messieurs," ho suid, "go to your
master, and toll him that is the message of tno nmn who in a few mouths
will sit upon the throne of France."
For u second the two soldiers, whoso
right arms wore rendered useless, stood
and faced him,
"I havo tho advantage," said M'sieu
Fon, "and to men who would have murdered mo while I slept I show no mercy!  '
Thou thoy passed down tho stairs

At the door Colonel D'Angeron pans

"Louis Bourbon," he said, "wu are
maimed for life; bul there are thousands mun1, men who wuuld rather see
our beloved country a mass of ruins
tlinn sue nnotuer of your cursed family
upon the throne!"
Then thoy passed into the night. For
n few moments M 'sieu Fou stood watching thom. pondering ovor in his mind
the words Colonel D'Angeron had spoken. Then, with a little sigh, he entered the comptoir.
Thoro the old Innkeeper was awaiting
" Sire," ho said, '' thoy called you
Louis Bourbon! "
"Yes," answered M'sieu Fou, "1 am
Louis, the lust of the Bourbons. Perhaps one day I shall sit upon the throne
of my fathers, and perhaps not, for
Franco is a strange country."
He laid five gold coins upon the table,
coins which bore the head of the man
who reigned in his stead and sat where
he should havo sat.
"This will recompense you for the
troublo T havo givon you," ho said.
"But. sire, yon will not leave tonight?"
"To-night 1 must go down to the
valley, where I have friends who await
me—bettor friends than those who have
just left. And to-morrow I leave for
Paris. Bon soir."
.   "Bon soir, sire!" said tho'old nlau.
Dazedly he walked to tho door, and
watched the last of the Bourbons climb
down lhe slopes which led into the valley, watched him until the gloom swallowed him up aud hid him from view.
Then ne picked tip the gold pieces whieh
M'sieu Fou had left upon tho tabic each
in turn, looked at the head upon it, and
read tho inscription.
"I wonder,'.' he said, "if ho will ever
be King of Franco. He would make a
good king."
THE woodland wanderer in the Philippine  jungles  must  turn to the
mountains to find the finest virgin
forest, and he goes armed with a bolo,
so as to carefully*blaze a trail ho can
follow in tho descent.
Old clearings, pushing up into the
forest like separated lingers ou the lower mountain spurs, are choked with rank
eogon grass growing eight to twelve
feet high—as moan u growth to pass
through as any briar patch or cane-
brake—which affords no shelter whatever from the sun. However, thoro is
compensation iu its gorgeous white
bloom, for, liko the poppy, the eogon is
a show-piece of nature. Most striking
.amongst the trees of the forest is a
representative of the fig family, locally
known us tbe baletc. possessing most
remarkable habits. Those trcos often
stnrt their existence high up in other
trees—not as parasites, but deriving
nourishment from humus and decayed
growths collected on the limbs nnd in
tho crotches of the older trees, sending
long, winding tendrils down to the

Moses Sherwood, a long suffcror from
Backache, found permanent relief in
one box of the Great Canadian Kid
ney Remedy, Dodd's Kidney Fills

hand.     Mr.   Mosos   Sherwood,   u   well-
known   farmer  living  near hero,  tried
Dodd's Kidney Pills and is now as wull
as over ho was in his lifo.
Mr. Sherwood's oxperience is similar
to that of thousands of other natives
of New Brunswick, "About eight years
ago 1 hurt my back from lifting," he
states. "T used liniments and plasters
and wore a wide bolt, bnt in twu yoars
my troublo hnd developed into kiudey
"My back was so sore T could not
lift any weight, when reading a Dodd's
Almanac led mo to try Dodd's Kidney
Pills. Before tllfl first box was finished
mv backache was gone uud I huve
uovor boon troubled  with it since,"
Holts and plasters may give temporary relief in ouses of fiacleach0 or
Khcuinatisin, bul tho only wav to euro
hem is to go to lhe' soul of tho
