The Dictator Is
A Real Drama
Richard Harding Davis' Story of
Lively Revolution in Latin
America is Famous.
Wallace Reid Has Star Role
The Internal disturbances of certain
romantic and ebullient South Amerf-
can republics, which have for years
furnished the American press and humorous writers with material for exciting dispatches or clever, humorous
discussions, were placed ln the hall
of fame by the plays of the late
Richard Harding Davis, who was virtually their literary spokesman,
, "The Dictator," which comes to the
llo-Ilo Theatre on Friday and Saturday, as a Paramount offering, with
Wallace Reid in the star role, 1b one
of this type by this author. It Is the
play which Willie Collier made famous on the stage and one ln which
Mr. Davis paints an exciting picture
of volcanic life in the Latin-American
Walter Woods, an experienced scenarist, translated the play to screen
terms, which meant modifying It
somewhat, briglng certain Incidents
down to date and generally applying
the modern brush to the canvas,
which is, however, still fresh and alluring.
Extra attractions are: "A Guilty
Course," a Western drama, and Three
Reels of Comedy,
Coming to llo-Ilo Monday & Tuesday
If one Is tired of gazing lor the
thousandth time at the antics of
tinsel-draped beauties and anemic-
looking men attired ln evening clothes
who are being made to suffer the horrible pangs of love and Jealously ln
dainty drawing room scenes, or other
glided surroundings; or If perchance
one Is bored by repetition of allegorical concoctions emanating from out
the wildest Sights of fancy, It la a relief to Und such a picture as the one
playing Monday and Tuesday at the
Ilo-llo Theatre, in which Roy Stewart
is supported by Louise Lovely. "The
Heart of the North" Is its title and it
will be here for two days.
This is a drama of the Far Northwest, where none but the bravest can
withstand the hardships of a region
beset with snow and ice and a country
harbouring lawless men and wild
animals. It is a land where the trail
and weak perish at ths wayside ln
tbe Inexorable game of lite and where
only brute strength dominates.
Commencing next week, there will
be a show each week night.
Messrs. Mumford & Walton, the well
Known grocers, and the Royal Candy
Store, are setting a good example by
having their stores freshly painted
and otherwise spruced up. It would
add greatly to the appearance of
Dunsmuir Avenue if other storekeepers would follow suit.
The Rebekahs will bold a Whist
Drive and Dance in the G. W. V. A.
Hall on Sept. 20th, commenorating
their 71st anniversary. Whist, 8 till
9.30; dance, 10 till 1.00. Refreshments
served.   Gents, 7!ic.; Ladies, 50 cts.
Arrangements for the sports to be
held here on Labor Day are well under way, and a large and varied programme of sports for children of all
ages Is being arranged, and will be
published in these columns next week.
Mr. Nat. Bevls, the secretary, reports
that great progress has been made,
and that the appeal for funds has been
met in a most gratifying manner.
Stage Spectacular
Semi-Final Game
The Club Tournament conducted by
the Cumberland Tennis Club has been
productive of some finely fought
matches, but the real thriller was
staged iu a semi-final game in the
ladies' singles. When Miss Brown and
Miss O. Bickle fought out u gruelling
natch to a 9-7 und 6-3 victory for
Miss Bickle.
Both ladles are ln the first rank of
Cumberland's tennis players, and a
keen fight was confidently expected.
Mlso Bickle opened the match with a
hard overhand service and scored on
the first three balls; but was unable
to hold the advantage thus gained.
The game being forced to deuce by
Miss Brown's hard drives to the slfle-
llne. Two more excellently played
services, however, gave the game to
Miss Bickle. Miss Brown took the
next game by a combination ot hard
services and low forehand drives, allowing her opponent only two points.
The next two games went to Miss
Bickle, who throughout the match displayed an ability to play at any position' on the court.
From this point, Miss Brown rallied,
and with a display of real skill and
generalship, featured by long rallies,
took the next four games, one of
which was via the love route, with
four beautiful service aces. Fighting
gamely, Miss Bickle won the next two
with backllne and sideline strokes
and a most accurate service; thus fixing the score at 5 all.
At this juncture both ladies had
really settled and were playing a
brand of tonnls which in tho opinion
of the spectators has rarely if ever
been equalled In the club's history.
6 all and 7 all was reached after four
more hard-fought games; two of
which went to deuce. The latter of
which brought out some wonderful
shots and recoveries.
But it was In the last two games
that the spectators had their biggest
treat For at this point the play waB
featured by both brilliance and steadiness of a very high order. The 16th
and 16th games being both deuce
games. The latter producing ten
deuces and showing both ladles at
the very top ot their form; and being
won ln the end by Miss Bickle with a
lead of two games. Making the set
As an evidence ot the even nature
of the set, a count ot the points scored
gives Miss Bickle 64 and Miss Brown
66, a difference ot only half a point
for each of the 16 games.
The second and deciding set opened
with Miss Bickle showing a decided
superiority and taking tho first two
games at game, 30, and game, love,
But here again Miss Brown showed
her gameness and resourcefulness by
taking the next alter a very hard light,
by driving hard and accurately to the
back and side lines. Again and again
her returns, beautifully timed and
placed, and rising only an inch or two
above the net, proved too much for
her opponent. As in the first set,
however, Miss Bickle, playing an all
round game and using both back and
forehand strokes, wore down her opponent's efforts; taking the set at 6-3
with a safe lead of nine points 'or the
game and seventeen for the match.
A resume ot the points shows that
only two-foot faults were given (both
Involuntarily); no double faults. Six
points lost on placements. Three love
games to Miss Bickle and one to Miss
Brown. Six deuce games In the set,
one of which (the last gamo In the
first set) went to ten deuces). A lead
.'or Miss Bickle of 8 points ln tho first
and nine points In the second set,
giving a lead for the match ot only
17 points ln the 25 games.

Japanese Made
Hostile Display
By Instruction from the Canadian
Government Department of Fisheries,
six of the Japanese boats captured
and confiscated for Illegal fishing on
the west coast of Vancouver Island,
were returned lo their owners on
ilaturday, Aug. 12th.
The condition of release was the
payment ot a nominal sum ot money
far Inadequate to meet the costs lo
which the Government was put in
connection with the cases.
The remaining seven boats are subject to release on similar conditions.
One of tbe Japanese owners who,
ou his oath, stated through a court interpreter that he could neither speak
nor understand the English language,
found himself possessed of ability to
make himself understood when his
boat was being returned to him.
He was clear and concise In remarks of ugly significance.
The Jap In question was ln a surly
mood when he arrived at the Port
Alberni float where the confiscated
boats were tied up under guard. He
held some conversation with Capt. AV.
J. Stone jvho was in charge. He assumed the aggrieved air of one on
whom grave injustice had been Inflicted.
Capt. Stone ventured a solacing
opinion to tho effect that when the
Japanese went fishing without licenses they could hardly expect, in case
they were caught, to escape the
penalties' prescribed, to which this
particular victim of the law replied
that the fishery officials, mentioning
two of them by name, were no good,
and as he boarded hla launch, delivered this parting shot;
"Bye and bye when Japanese
Soldiers come, they fix 'em."
To people unacquainted with Japanese Insolence on this coast, that remark might mean no more than an
utterance of silly Inteut.
To the man who Is compelled to
brush against the Japanese who overrun the fishing grounds of this dls
trlct, and who has observed their development of proprietary attitude, It
Is an angry boast of a cherished hope.
Not so long since was this borne
out in approaches made by Japanese
to Indian fishermen. The Indians
were organizing with the white men,
and the organization waa not held in
friendly regard by the Japs.
Japanese representatives waited on
a number of Indians and tried to point
out to them the foolishness of casting
ln their lot wilh the white men, 'declaring that the Japs would soon be
In conti ol of the country and that the
Indians might then suffer for their
lack of foresight.
The Japs were not very far from
port on Saturday night when they began a dangerous display of swash-
bucking in contempt tor the rights of
white men In these waters. They
went down Alhernl canal and Barclay
Sound, In the darkness, without lights
on their boatB. They could see other
launches, with lights, approaching,
but the other navigators could not see
them. In a reckless manner the Japs
cut across the bows of craft weaker
than their own, and ln one case,
struck a white man's boat and kept
right on going.
These are the Japs lor whom a
sympathetic plea was successful);
made to Ihe Government following the
court order for confiscation.
It Is now, also, recalled thai when
the Japs were here awaiting Ihe decision of the court they had large
wads ot money on display; some o'
lliein admitting thai Ihey expected
and were ready, lo pay lines of $50'
each. They were assessed only Jinn
Port Alberni News.

Japs Wins Another
Juniors Lose Out'j
The ball fans were treated to the
best game of the season on the Recreation Grounds last Sunday afternoon, when the wily Nipponese won
a great game. It was like the typical
exhibition that has been witnessed
tlita year when tho Cumberland Intermediates and Japanese exchanged
greetings on the diamond. This is
the fourth occasion this year in which
the Intermediates walked off the diamond minus a shutout which has
been robbed of them in the last Inning. Sunday's win virtually gives the
Japanese the Intermediate League;
however, should they throw away any
of their two remaining games, the
local crew may yet turn the hat trick.
Ohl Toil Sluggers.
In the rival twlrlera, there is but
little to choose. They fanned 11 men
apiece, while the Jap moundsmen
cracked but one battel; Hunden hit
5 men. Hojo was hit more frequently
than Hunden, allowing seven base-
hits, Including two home-runs, while
Hunden allowed but 4 hits, one of
which was a double. The battine.
honors go to Dave Hunden and Amos
Farmer without opposition. Each
cracking out home runs apiece. Steve
Little made the catch of the day
down ln the left garden when he robbed Kitisaki, the Jap left fielder, of n
Tbe Eventful Ninth.
Both teams put up a great exhibition till the ninth stanza. Hojo had
to contend with a man on the third
sack In the first inning. He failed to [
score, however, when the scratch hit
failed to bring him In. The local
twlrler also pitched himself out of a I
nice hole In the eighth. \
Then came the eventful ninth, and
it came witli such a crash! Hunden
sent the Intermediate boys into the
seventh heaven of delight when he
made a great drive over the fence.
Amos Farmer, just to show how easy
it could be done, duplicated the feat
ot the former batter and also clouted
out a circuit drive. To the Intermediates it looked as If the game was
on ice, but alas! the story is not yet
all told. The little men came back
with their last chance with the stick,
and after the muddle was over in the
Inst half of the Inning, they had
squeezed in three runs and grabbed
the bacon. It ia the old, old story
of a ball game never being won till
the last inning, with the last man
out. Charlie Finch wna the chief ar
oritator of the game; his decisions
helng satisfactory to both teams.

These heavy loads really defeat their
own ends. The shot is mutilated
more, the patterns are poor, and due
to the increased resistance of the deformed shot, the velocity dropB off
more rapidly.
Authorities agree that 2% drams of
powder and 1 1-8 ounces of shot in
the 12-gauge, 2% drams of powder
and \ ounces of shot in the 20-gauge,
are properly balanced loads, and no
advantage is to be gained in using
heavier ones.
One should not expect a 20-gauge
gun to carry a 12-gauge load any
more than you would think of having
a pony draw the load of a cart horse.

Trans-Atlantic liners are again infested with skilful card sharks. Trans-
Atlantic gambling went out of existence during the war, when the gamblers were unable to get accommodation on the liners. From latest reports there are more skilful operators
on the ocean this summer than ever
before. As a result of a steady
bridge session, a New York victim
lost $30,000. Another American dropped $500 In twenty minutes in a poker
game with two strangers.

home with each team.
Tbe question of referees, which
caused some dissatisfaction last year,
was given special consideration at the
meeting. It was agreed that Messrs.
J. Watson (Nanaimo), R. Strachan
(Cumberland), and Mr. Orr (Ladysmlth), be authorised to appoint the
referees for the league.
Another Important decision was arrived at in connection with the kick

Tennis Finals Were
Extremely Exciting
The Tournament promoted by the
Cumberland Tennis Club Is drawing
to a close. During the past week
some very exciting and keenly contested games were played.
The game between Miss O. Bickle
and Miss Brown proved to be a real
championship affair.
Miss Bickle eventually winning 9-7,
6-3. The games were more evenly
contested than the score would intricate, a great many deuce Bets being
played. The game lasted for about
one hour, and on the completion of
the match both ladies were accorded
a great reception by the many spectators present.
The final for the men's doubles, between R. P. Christie and Chas. Graham and ID. R. Hicks and Allan
Nunns,, resulted ln a win for Christie
nnd Graham, 2-6, 6-0, 13-11.
This was a most exciting and interesting game, and until tbe latorl
stroke was played, was anybody's
The first sett resulted ln a win tor
the runners' up, but though the score
was 6-2 In their favour, yet the game
was closer than the score shows forth,
as 6 out of the 8 games were deuce
ones, and only 9 more strokes were
won by tbe winners than the losers.
In the second sett, the champions won
a love sett, but again 3 ot these games
were deuce ones, and two ot them
were very keenly contested.
The score now being sett-all, all four
players settled down in good earnest
and gave a display ot some fine tennis.
The first five games were won by
the servers, but the sixth game going
to the striker out, resulted In a score
of 4-2 In favour of Hicks and Nunns.
The score, however, was equalised in
the 8th game, and from that time,
each side won alternate games. At
8-all, the light was failing and a suggestion was made by the referee to
stop and play tbe match over another
day. However, all the players decided to play It out, and eight more
games had to be played before tbe
match was won and lost. The match
lasted for nearly two hours, and all
four players must be congratulated
for the splendid exhibition they gave
and for the sportsmanlike manner In
which they bowed to the decisions of
the umpire.
Mrs, Geo. Clinton acted as umpire
in the final for the men's doubles, and

Cumberland & Union Waterworks Co., Ltd.
Owing to the prolonged dry weather we find that it is necessary to restrict the use of
water, as if we allow the present enormous consumption to continue the town may, in the event
of nd rainfall for the next two months, be faced with a water famine.
In YOUR interests and for the protection of YOUR property in the event of a fire,-we
find it necessary to bring into effect immediately the following regulations :—
(1). Water must not be used for sprinkling or irrigating purposes except—FOR ONE
HOUR ONLY—from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.
(2). The practice of using water for the purpose of watering sidewalks, streets, etc.,
must cease. Persons using water for these purposes are liable to have their services disconnected until such time as we can install a meter on their supply.
(3). Leaking taps, toilets, pipes, fittings, etc., must immediately be brought into good
repair as any premises on which water is found wasting' from these causes will be disconnected
without further notice.
There is absolutely no desire on the part of this Company to curtail the use of
water when same is used in a proper manner for domestic purposes, but in a large number of
cases we find this privilege being abused and should the abuse continue we shall be forced to consider the installation of water meters, which would make the cost of water much heavier for the
same consumption.       >
, We once more draw to your attention the fact that this is being done in YOUR
interests as every leaking tap or pipe or sprinkler used unnecessarily lowers the water pressure
and consumes water that may be needed in a few weeks more for household purposes or may be
needed TODAY to extinguish a fire on YOUR property.
Thanking you in anticipation of your co-operation in this matter, we are,

"Dud" is supposed to be quite a new
word, coined since 1914, but as a matter of fact it is old. The Scotch used
it ln the expression, "He's a saft dud,"
and it was known In Cumberland,
"Thoo wad make two o' oor Mary, and
she's nea dud." It first meant a rag,
then became a term of contempt, and
so described a harmless shell.

(By "Devonian.")
AND that, gentlemen, is your verdict?"     asked     the     coroner,
"That," answered   the   foreman,   a
little   pale,   but   very   Arm, "is   our
"Well, it's yours, and not mine!"
snapped the coroner, and, with much
buzzing over this unusual incident,
the yokels who had served on the jury
and others who had merely been interested spectators of the Inquest, adjourned to the Spotted Dog to discuss
the situation over suitable refreshment.
"What on earth's the meaning of it,
Upton?" asked the coroner, as he and
the foreman, their professional antagonism set aside, walked back to the
village arm In arm.
The coroner, who has no further interest for us, was a bluff, red bearded
lawyer who rode hard. Bhot fairly
straight, and had a sunny temper, unruffled by his old-established family
connection in the county, and a hearty
laugh, in which the gruesome associations of his work found no echo. It
was he, who, five years earlier, had
given Cyril Upton his first brief, and
since then the foreman of to-day ha 1
made long strideB at the bar, and wan
already acquiring a reputation In tho
Central Criminal Court, chiefly as
Junior to a genial Irishman. The
Courts were closed now, and he wan
staying at his old home, the Manor,
where only two days earlier his beau-
tlflul young California!! wife had
given birth to a son. Instead of being on the jury, he might more
properly have been cited as a witness, since the tragedy which had occupied them that afternoon had been
enacted in a plantation on the estate.
A man had been found there by one
of the under-gardeners shot through
tho heart, and it had been all they
could do to keep news of the discovery from the house, where at thst
moment the young mother was crooning to her first-born. The dead man
lay, face downwards, lu a clearing, a
bullet-hole In his chest, and a revolver of large calibre on the ground not
far trom his hand. The neighbourhood, which had never within living
memory boasted a criminal of blacker
dye than a poacher or common thief,
favoured the view of suicide, and as
the coroner hml leant to tho Bame
enny explanation, which purged Little
Stanford of the unenviable reputation
of having sheltered a murderer In its
rustic mldBt, there Is little doubt that
the butcher and bulicr und candlestick-maker who served aB "good men
and true" would have given a verdict
In accordance. But Cyril Upton, who
was proudly regarded In his native
village as to all Intents and Jurposcs
the occupant of the Woolsack, had
soon brought these worthy Hheep
round to his way of thinking, and was
not to be browbeaten even by the
man to whom he owed that firBt brief.
The Instinct of the C.C.C. hud been
roused by several details. There was,
first, the distance between the revolver and the man's hand. There was
also a difficulty about the bullet. It
had smashed, or mushroomed rather,
against a bone, and could not therefore be fitted to the weapon, but,
though seemingly perfect It hod
weighed appreciably lens than nnother
bullet from one ot the unused cartridges. But there had been something
else, something which Cyril held In
hlK pocket and had not brought forward nt lhe Inquest. He know Ihat
ho was taking risks In suppressing
it. and it was tho nameless fear with
which It Inspired him that made him,
as if to salve his conscience, do every-
I thing In Mb power to secure that ver
dict of murder against some person
or persons unknown. When, on the
morning of the discovery, he had
walked buck to the house, his Irish
terrier had suddenly darted down a
side path which led behind the stables
and motor-house, and with his nerves
ready to respond to any Influence, he
had followed. The dog had only
bolted after a rabbit which had trespassed unusually near the house, but
Cyril's eye had been caught by a
ucrewed-up paper under a laurel. He
would not in the ordinary way have
taken any notice of it beyond perhaps
suggesting its removal by the gardener, but he stopped and picked it up,
not expecting to find anything of particular interest. What he did find
caused him to whistle. It was nothing
less than a page torn from the A.B.C.,
with a pencilled line under the trains
between Little Stanford and the
nearest junction.
His father, the General, had gone to
town on business connected with the
estate the day before, but was returning post-haste on hearing of tho
disturbance. He by no means took
hln son's view of the case. Where, he
asked, could there be any motive for
the crime? The man might have been
un Englishman, but was more probably American if his "doormat" beard
wont for anything. ObvlouBly there
had been no thought of robbery, for
there was both gold and sliver In his
pockets, and, ub the body had not been
discovered until some hours, had
elapsed, the murderer could not have
been disturbed. True, the boy who
went round with the milk had been
certain that he hud heard two shots,
but then he was also the village Idiot,
and absolutely unreliable. Ordinarily
cool and suuve, the General lost his
temper when his son held obstinately
to his own view, and, for some reason
which Cyril would have found It hard
to exylain to himself, he did not show
his father the damning evidence of
the railway guide, which effectually
did away with the opinion, shared by
the General and his simple neighbours, thut the man hud merely taken
the firBt opportunity In that lonely
ipol of carrying out the purpose he
had In hlb mind.
Well, the verdict stood, but tbe
police could do nothing to justify It.
Cyril did what he could to gel at the
♦ ruth of the mutter, but between his
convalescent wife, who had to he kept
tree from excitement, nnd his father,
who forbade the topic to be mentioned
between them, he bud little support,
and in due time the Criminal Court,
with larger Issues, claimed him again
for Its own. All he did. therefore, was
to docket such evidence as he had In
support of Ills own opinion, and It
ivub little "'enough. Still, he made hi:
notes and locked them away In a
sealed packet. They Included the torn
page out of the A.B.C. und the respective weights of the two bullets. That
lakeu out of the dead man weighed
200 grains over the ounce, whereas
the clean bullet from his revolver hail
weighed a hundred grains more. The
coroner had made the most of the
probability of splinters having been
lost, but this was not the Impression
that the difference conveyed to Upton,
and, as he had seen, he had brought
the Jury round to his way of thinking
Three years passed. The mystery
of the Curse Wood wus well-nigh for
I gotten, though now nnd again, of
I course. It cropped up ut ll.e Spotted
Dog for the delectation of newcomer:
or visitors, and Little Stanford had
unconsciously acquired a certain
| pride in It ns the neighbourhood's
only remote claim lo a crime of Its
own. Cyril Upton had strengthened
his position at the criminal bar, and
being possessed of ample private
means, talked of taking silk. The
General had aged considerably since
we last saw him, and liis one pleasure
now was to be tyrannised over by his
grandBon, a small creature with lungs
of Iron and a pretty will of hla own.
fl.ady Upton hud died In the Intorvul,
and the old man was never happier
than when his young d iiighter-ln-law
vould come with the child for a long
itay. There was very little entertaining beyond an occasional dinner
lo neighbours which Cyril could get
down, and as Mamie Upton had a passion for (lowers, she was always
happy about the conservatories aud
uld Italllan garden.
It wnB on a Hue April afternoon
that the three sat out on the terrace.
.More accurately, old Kir Uoger and
his beautiful daughter-in-law sat Out
on the terrace and little Roger ran in
and out of the French widows, ever
bringing some new trifle from the
library or elsewhere, und holding It
up in childish glee. No one ever said
him nay, aud he would rummuge
among his grandfather's belongings
Kith a freedom which made the well-
trained servants at the Manor hold
tlielr breath. He bad already drugged
the General's spurs off a nail, and two
old duelling pistols and a hunting
crop lay in artistic disorder at their
owner's feet. Then came a long Interval. Master Roger was evidently
unearthing some peculiarly elusive
treasure. His mother, a little nervous
at so long an absence, hud called out,
"Roger all right?" And had received
tbe ungrammutlcul but eminently
comforting assurance, "Me all right."
Then there was a sound aa of a
chair overturned, and Just as the
General and Mamie had started up,
fearful lent anything should have befallen the apple of their eye, the small
form had come dancing out of the
library window, brimming with excitement and "Look whut Roger found
now I"
He hud run straight to his mother
with the treasure, and the General,
who was reading the day's 'Times,'
and muttering wrathful imprecations
on the "rampant Socialism" of the
existing Ministry, had paid little attention when a choking cry made him
look up, and he sprung up erect as
ever, Just in time to catch his daughter-in-law In his arms.
She recovered In a moment, but all
the colour bad ebbed from her face,
and "Say—my God—where did be get
that troin.anywny?"
And when the General saw what
she held In her bund, n curious silver
ring with a battered monogram on
the Hat aide, ho too went as white as
a Bhect, nnd could only babble Inherently.
Meanwhile the Innocent cause of
the trouble stood by, his little undcr-
llp quivering. Evidently he was on
the verge of tears.
"Me—me—And It In grandpa's
denk!  Mummy! Mummy!"
The otherB pulled themselves together. The mother looked an unspoken question, nnd Ihe General
averted IiIb eyes, afraid to meet hers,
and slipped the ring Into his pocket.
"My God!" he murmured, as he tottered feebly towards the house. "To
think ot the boy finding that!"
And always now there would be this
dicadful secret between them. They
would never speak of it again; they
knew that. Nor would a word of this
reach Cyril, who was not expected for
another fortnight. It was a bond of
guilt, ami whal a bond helween two
who lived only for good!
Vet another three years, and this
iime the gallant old BOldter lay dying.
In bis great bedroom he lay, facing
Ihe setting sun one hot August evening when nightjars were churring In
the fields and BWltU were screaming
past th« open windows He wns the
Ilrst Upton for three generations who
bad died in hlb lied, fur Cyril was tbl
flrat son of that house to prefer th«
. ig to the sword, and his grandfather
and great-grandfather lay in soldier's
graves nt Balaclava and Meerut Foi
Some months the old man's mind had
wandered, and It had been a long ill
neaSt with growing exhaustion
Through It all be was tenderly nursed
hy his daiighter-ln-law, and if now
now nud again tlielr eyes met with
guilty knowledge of tlielr secret, no
word passed on the subject. Cyril.
vho had been a devoted son. had spent
OB much time with the old warrior af
his Increasing work permitted, but he
had only arrived just in time for the
ond, He was in the room now, and
Mamie had gone to lie down, overwrought by several exceptionally trying nights through which she had insisted en sitting up. Cyril leant
ggafrift the window looking sadly oul
on the summer sunset, and realizing
how greatly the dying man had loved
him. Indeed, they had only had one
serlotts difference, and once again the
details of. 'hat mystery of the Purse
Wood, nearly seven yearn old now,
came bark to him with a vividness for
which, ho Inappropriate did they seem
at such ft moment, he could* tlnd no

The voice from the bed had some
of the old Are In It, and was very different from the distressing whimper
in which the Invalid had talked of
"Yes, dad!"
"There Is something I want to say
to you, my lad—something not very
easy—but It has to be said, and nothing much matters now. 1 am going
—yes, In a few minutes now—and I
cannot leave you In Ignoranco—of—

"Why bother, dad, If it Is anything
that pains you?"
Yet ln some sub-conscious way be
knew beyond ii doubt that which his
father referred to.
"No, my boy—that Isn't the way of
the Uptons. I am dying like an old
ivomiiu, Cyril, but I hope I'm a man
uud a—a soldier still." And the grand
old figure made u futile attempt to
straighten Itself, then tell back exhausted on the pillow.
There was a pause, during which
the son smoothed the pillow and gave
the patient a sip of a cordial left by
the doctor for such emergencies.
"You remember, my lad, the—the—
business In lhe Furse Wood?"
Ile glanced sidelong at hla son, as
If to see whether the reminder
startled him. But a barrister of the
Criminal Court does not wear his
heart on his sleeve, and lu spite of
the excitement that was running riot
In his veinr., Cyril replied In offhand
manner, "Why, yes, of course. We
hud u little difference of opinion over
that, dad."
"Not really, my boy, not really. Wo
both thought the same -thut Is to say,
you thought, and  I  KNEW !"
DJyea looked straight into eyes now,
lOUl into soul. Somehow they wero
not :ii much father and son as tbe
'arrl.-ter. every nerve alert, uud the
elf-confessed   criminal.
"You were so cocksure, my lad—so
i k-uie and I loved you for It. It

The head fell hack ou the pillow,
mil a shudder went through the
Btnaclated body under the quilt. Then
i gallant soldier's spirit went before
Its Judge. And tbe son, he who had
been so cocksure, hut who now cursed
himself tor a prig, knew that his
father was gone beyond.
Then he staggered to the cabinet
and opened the little drawer, night

brown paper, tied round with string,

Almost sacrilege, this prizing open of
i dead man's secret. Afler all, it had
been his father's wish. So he tore
away the string and found—a flattened bullet. Hound It were some
