LOCAL LEADERS
Frank   Farrington
Labour Commiuioner
Price.
Little has been heard for some
time locally of Mr. Frank Farrington. He has apparently dropped Nanaimo from his regular
itinerary, and perhaps he has
good reasons. It is currently reported that he is no longer the
person gra'a he used to be with
the men. He is no longer worshipped as a labor idol, and his room
is even more welcome than his
company, Still he has to play up
to his role, and regarded as a
bluff he is incomparable. His
latest performance is a triumph
in affection. He has undertaken
to expose Commissioner Price,
and a copy of his exposure, addressed to Minister of Labor Crothers, and bearing the date of
December 15, appears in the B.C.
Federationist this week. His
article, considered as a literary
composition is a work of art, but
regarded as a contribution to the
present dispute it is by far and
away the most damaging statement yet published in the interests of the union. What the local
leaders think about it can hardly
be imagined. It upsets their
whole statement of the causes of
the present trouble, and presents
an entire change of front. In
other words, posing as the officer who has had charge of the
strike since its inception, he deliberately throws over the account
given by the local leaders of the
origin of the strike.
There are other points in Farrington's reply to Commissioner
Price which do not make the case
any better for the union. To
begin with the charges that the
Commissioner has manifestly
failed to reveal the truth. The
report is neither impartial nor
complete. Some of it was evidently ment to injure the men on
strike. It is worthless as a
historical document, and the
Commissioner has outstepped propriety to find justification for the
iniquitous attitude of the mine
owners.
All this is in Farrington's happiest vain. Unfortunately for
himself and for the organization
which he represents he utterly
fails to produce any proof in support of his assertions. Indeed
he never tries. Whatever else
may be said of Commissioner
Price's report it is at least dispassionate in tone and impartial in
attitude. He took the evidence
as he got it, and whenever he
ventures upon a decision it is inevitable on the evidence he submits. Moreover he never gives
an opinion without first submitting the facts. His statement
that "he preferred to state the
facts and circumstances with a
good deal of fullness and detail
rather than to give merely a bald
expression of opinion upon the
merits of the case," is to amply
borne out in his report to be affected by this flamboyant twaddle of Farrington.
It is another fault with Farrington that he was not consulted by
Commissioner Price as much as
his dignity and importance called
for. It shows thot the ' 'Commissioner was not anxious to have
■''acts." Knowing as he did that
Farrington had charged minister
Crothers only a few days before
the latters arrival in Vancouver
in July with refusing the application of the men of Cumberland 1912
a board of investigation under
the Industrial Disputes Act,
when he knew only to well thai
no application of the kind had
ever been made, how was Commissioner Price to understand
that he would get facts from
Farrington? (The public never
did and the men have found out
that theyjneverdid.) Commissioner Price showed wisdom in this.
Farrington next alleges that
after careful inquiry he finds that
district and local officers did not
have the privilege of appearing
before the Commissioner. Now
this statement of Farrington is
addressed to Minister Crothers
whom he knows accompanied
Commissioner Price during the
greater part of his investigation,
visiting all the strike centres.
Yet addressing Minister Crothers
Mr, Farrington concludes that
Commissioner Price was desirous
of escaping rather than finding
the truth. Comment is superfluous.
Farrington next takes up the
question of the employment of
Orientals in the Cumberland
mines. He is not satisfied with
the Commissioners figures and
yet he cannot alter them. There
were at the time the Commissioner held his inquiry more Orientals
employed than at the time the
strike began. Commissioner
Price gives the figures. He does
not say, as Farrington does, that
the employment of these Orientals is a violation of the provincial
mining laws because he cannot.
Neither can Farrington contradict the figures quoted by the
Commissioner that up to July
that only 36 Orientals had been
granted certifiaates of comnetan-
cyas coal miners, although union
officials had declared that certificates had been granted wholesale to these Orientals.
The next point taken up by
Farrington is the statement by
Commissioner price that "the
allegations as to the unsafety of
some of the mines are at least
grossly exaggerated." Farrington does'not like the Commissioners figures, nor the latters exposure af the allegations by the
union officials that the percentage of fatal accidents in the
mines of the Canadian Collieries
Company had increased 200 per
cent, from 1911 to 1912. Commissioner Price does not give
late enough figures says Farrington, Since the strike began
Orientals and vagabonds have
been herded into the Cumberland
mines and slaughtered there.
The fatalities in 1913 he says
must have been appalling, yet
Commissioner Price does not give
the figures. Neither does Farrington. Why? He could have
got them and most assuredly had
they borne out his absurd charges he would have published
them.
Besides he falls into a serious
error himself inhisjzeal to expose
the Commissioner. He says the
herding of the Orientals and
vagabonds into the Cumberland
mines after the strike accounts
for the 200 per cent, increase in
the fatilities in 1912. Now the
strike began in the middle of
September. There was no work
at all for a month, and very little
in the next month or before the
end of the year. And now, discarding percentages ,what are
the actual figures? At all the
mines of the Canadian Collieries
Company the returns are as
follows:
Year      Employees     Fatalities
1910 2519      8
1911 2140      2
1912 1846      4
CUMBERLAND MINES
Year      Employees     Fatalities
1910 1588 5
1911 1250 2
983                4
In the face of such figures it is
rank absurdity to talk of men being herded into the mines and
slaughtered.
Farrington, however, is determined to show that it is the inexperience of tho men who have
gone to work since the strike
began that is responsible for the
increase in the number of fatilities, and in doing so he shatters
the whole case of the union for
the present trouble, He says
that when the men in September
1912, ceased work "the mines
were as SAFE as human hands
could make them." Again replying to the statement of Commissioner Price that "the allegations
made as to the unsafety of the
mines are at least grossly exaggerated" he says; —
"The above declaration is
an invasion of the truth:
the strikers had made no
such allegations. On the
contrary we acknowledge
that when experienced men
are employed the mines are
as SAFE as ever."
This is the most amazing statement he has yet made, and The
Herald commends it to the attention of the men on strike here.
They were told and still believe
that the actual cause of the strike
at Cumberland was the dangerous condition of the mines. Pettigrew told them that no improvement had been made in the condition of the mines at Extension
since the explosion in 1909. He
told them and the statement has
been published far and wide that
it was because he reported dangerous conditions while serving
on a gas committee that Mottishaw was discharged. Only a.few
days ago in Vancouver he boasted thai he was able to prove
Bowser a liar for saying taht gas
committees or dangerous conditions had nothing to do with the
cause of the strike. All the
strike leaders alike have appealed
to public sympathy on the ground
that the company was seeking to
compel the miners to work in
dangerous conditions. Now Farrington declares that the mines
were as safe as human hands
could make them. He even says
that there were never any allegations made by the strikers that
the mines were unsafe. The
Herald will leave it to the men.
It has always said with regard to
these allegations of Pettigrew
and other local leaders that they
were untrue and atight never to
have been made. Farrington,
the chief officer of the strike,
now says they never were made.
Perhaps the men will figure it
out.-—Nanaimo Herald.

A rumor which is persistently
going the rounds has it that during the approaching session cf
the Provincial Legislature the
government will introduce a
a measure which will have the
effect of es'ablishing a provincial
mounted police force presumably
to be conducted upon the same
lines as those in vogue in the
Royal Northwest Mounted Police,
says the Vancouver Province.
And the same rumor states that
one of the best known cavalry
officers in the province will be
given command of the new force.
It is stated that at the commencement 200 men will be raised and
that the main headquarters will
be at Kamloops, with divisional
headquarters at Nanaimo. It is
stated that the force will be thor.
oughly equipped and ready to act
in any emergency. It is stated
that the increase of crime in the
interior and northern portions of
the province as well as the recent
trouble in the mining districts of
the Island has persuaded the
government, nf the necessity of
having at its disposal such a
force.
If the rumor is founded on
fact, the news of the organization
of such a force will be welcome
indeed to the members of the
militia, because it will then not
be necessary to call upon the
latter to perform duties which, to
say the least, are most distasteful to the great majority. While
there was no indication of it on
the surface, and the men did
their duty with a thoroughness
that was most commendable, yet
it is a well-know fact that prac
tically everyone who was called
to the Island inwardly protested
because of it. And it was only
natural that they should, because
doing strike duty is something
which no soldier likes, and
especially those who spend the
greater part of their time in civil
life. It can honestly be said that
not one in 500 who join the
militia has any thought when
swearing in of ever being called
upon to perform the work whirh
was imposed upon the regiments
from Victoria and Vancouver
last August. With the formation
of a force such as is proposed the
militia will be relieved of this
class of work, something which
will be welcomed by all ranks.
There is a vast difference between a volunteer force and a
regular force in such matters.
The latter enlist for just such
work as had to be performed on
the Island, while the former join
with ihe primary object of participating in the defence, of the
nation, either against invasion or
rebellion. And. moreover, the
calling out of the militia when
labor troubles occur is having a
disastrous effect upon the force
all over the Dominion, This has
been amply demonstrated in Van
couver of late, because all the
corps in the city are experiencing
great difficulty in securing recruits, while many of the old
members who arc time-expired
are dropping out. The nation
requires a force for its defence
and there can hardly be found
one individual who does not re-
rngnise this, bnt the majority of
men nowadays hesitate to throw
in their lot wilh the militia when
they see that force utilized for
purposes it was never intended.
The establishment of the proposed force will do away with all
such objections, and it will be
found thot scores and hundreds
of young men who now refuse to
indentify themselves with *the
militia will, under the changed
conditions, throw in their lot
with the Canadian army. It ii,
therefore to be hoped that the
rumor of the proposed force will
prove well founded.
THE CANADIAN BANK OF
COMMERCE.
The annual statement of the
Canadian Bank of Commerce
gives an excellent diagnosis of
financial conditions in Canada for
the past year. Figures, ordinarily speaking, may not denote
much to the uninitiated and bank
statements are often considered
little dry. Still it is worth
while glancing at the results of
the business of the Canadian
bank of Commerce for the year
ending 29th November, at which
date under the new Banking Act
all banks make up their books.
The Commerce easily leads in
the profits made for Canadian
bank shareholders, being 1350,000
in excess of the nearest competitor, and 19.9 per cent, was earned on average   capital.     The
balance at the credit of profit and
loss account,   brought forward
from last year, was $771,578, and
the net profits for the year ending 29th November, 1913, were
$2,992,251.    Of    this   amount
$384,529 is carried forward this
year and 11,000,000 transferred
to the rest account.    The bank
pays to shareholders a ten per
cent dividend with two bonuses
of one per cent added.   The total
amount on deposit  reaches the
enormous total of $192,813,714,
while tho statement of liabilities
and assets further shows that the
bank has $136,474,874 out in current   loans   and   discounts  in
Canada,   which    indicates   the
enormous business this institution
is  doing in this  country.     It
evidently does not fall under the
category of those banks which
are supposed to be favouringother
countries    with    their   current
business rather than their own.
There has not been the sligheat
difficulty in the financing of 2,000
miles of new railway now under
construction in British Columbia, although 16,000 men are
employed. Not one of the companies building lines in the province under agreement with the
government have asked for a
day's extension of time. ....jjhe
agreements are being carrierf.Out
to the letter and in many ceics
the work is going ahead faster
than was expected. I

LANGLEY OPPOSED TO
SAMPLE MARKE'S
Believes   Establishment  at  Winnipeg
Would   Result  In  Heavy  Lois to
Saskatchewan Farmers
Kegina. Saslt.—Hon Georgo Langley, minister ot municipal affairs for
Saskatchewan, In .1 characteristic Interview today declared Iris conviction
that tho establishment of a sample
market I'm* Brain in Winnipeg would
result In a sroat loss to rhe farmers
I of Saskatchewan, This statement
from llio minister makes It certain
lhat the report ol the royal commission which is now being prepared by
tho secretary, A. P. Mantle, wlll be
unanimous agaluBt the sunrpje market,
all tho other members ol the royal
| commission having previously ex-
I pressed their opinions on this Import
I ant subject, Mr. Langley said he
| was supported* in his contention hy an
overwhelming majority of the lntelll*
' gent grain growers of tho province.
He stnti il that the loss to the farmers
in' Saskatchewan from iho establishment of a sample market in Winnipeg
would ninount to millions ot dollars,
No Effecti/e Competition
In discussing lhe question Mr. Langley said: "i:. A. P, Partridge, of Slnt-
nhiia, an eloquent advocate ot sample market has said that llrlilah millers would ho represented on such a
market In Winnipeg and that there
would be olTcctivo com pell I Ion In tlio
purchase of wheat. In reply to this I
would say that when I was in Great
Britain last summer investigating
this question I asked the Vernon people ninl rlre Ranltes, leading millers ol
England, and other large millers,
whether their representative would
come Hi Winnipeg to select types
within the grade, 1 was never taken
seriously In this matter. The Britls..
millers always believed lhat I was
Jesting. i'our Canadian wheat Is itself a type, ihey said. 1 may also say
that 1 would not expect to see a slunk- Canadian mills, on a Winnipeg
sample market competing for wheat.
Those dealers are all able to select
Iholr grain through llieir country elevators. Tue only active buyers will
be the men who nre interested in mixing wheal and when llio unlimited
blending nf grain is Introduced, what
is known as tho high line of our wheat
will be destroyed ln all Iho higher
grades. Tbe top will disappear and
the general character of our* product
on the foreign nv.irket will be changed. Tlie farmer will suffer and will
not he aware of it. In une ease out
of tell a producer will set a cent a
bushel more on the sample market as
a premium for good grain within tho
grade, but ns n result of mixing lie
will lose this cent and also another
cent a bushel while the remaining nine
fanners will lose two cents a bushel.
The only way in which tho country
could ascertain how much tho farmer
was losing would ho lo send certain
large quantities nt graded wheat to
Ibe Old Country In Us natural state
without mixing. Ir would then become apparent bow mucb loss was entailed through lhe process of mixing."
Fears Tie-Up of Traffic
Asked what effect the establishment o( a sample market would have
nn the transportation ot Snsl.atche-
'wan wheal to the seaboard, Mr. Lang-
i ley was si 111 more emphatic. 1 would
: prefer, ho said, not to say anything
ion the question of transportation. I
am not Interested in railway companies. I do not want oven to appear to
be concerned about any railway. The
I people In whom 1 am interested are
ithc struggling farmers of Saskatchewan. 1 have found that tlie railway
j companies are quite able lo protect
themselves and what 1 am doing ln
ihls matter is in the interests ot our
grain growers. Tire truth is, however*, lire truth, when all Is said and
ilotie. In the name of all that is holy,
what tho sample market would do
would lie In bung up our railway
transportation ten limes worse than It
is over bunged up now. Our system
between Iteglnn anil Fort William
would bo right out on the hummer.
Even alter Iho present great rush Is
over 1 would anticipate very serious
trouble it' this change 13 made. The
congestion at Winnipeg might at any
lime become hopeless and desperate
with great resulting loss to shippers.

sbe was absolutely crushed; also that

ber till that horrid Nell Blancbanl bad
como between tbem ami mado all tbo
trouble. Then under such distressing
circumstances I would bo expected to
do a magnanimous, noble part by relieving hor of ber frightful embarrassment by releasing ber without blame.
One dny I received n noto from Ethel chiding mo for not having been to
see her for n week. Sho simply called
my attention to llio fact without comment. I replied that tbe fail trade
wis at Its height, and I was working
nights I received nnotber noto stating tbnt I bed not worked every
nlgbt, for I bad been seen at tbe theater in company with a pretty girl a
few evenings before. My reply to Ibis
was n confession. The young ludy I
had taken to tho (healer bnd onco
been n "dame" of mine. She possessed
certain letters I hud written her when
I thought I loved yer, whlcb I was desirous to get Into my possession before being married. In order to do
tbis I must dissemble, When I bnd
won ber confidence I could the better
devise a scheme for securing tbo letters.
I was quite sure this would bring
matters to a climax, and it did. Ethel
wroto me to como and see ber at onco.
If I delayed she would send back the
engagement ling I bad given ber. I
thought over my next move and decided to go to see ber I found her
very mucb troubled, though she endeavored to conceal evidence of the
fact Her fare wus heated, ber eyes
were restless and ber bosom benved
"Wliy did you not tell me of this
former love affair?" she asked In an
icciisutory tone
"Bocauso I supposed It was off long
•go."
"And now It's on ngnln."
To this I made no reply    1 looked at
tbe ceiling.
"Unless you wish to break with me
you must drop it nt once •'
"I bnve not yet recovered my letters."
"Your letters!   Nonsense!"
Tliere was another ..Hence.   I took
my eyes from the celling nnd directed
them out through n window
"Well, what aro you going to do?"
Ethel asked.
I responded in a quiet, reflective tone
that If sbe would not object to my
letters being used against me after my
marriage with ber I would let tnem
remain wbere tbey were. I would call
the next evening upon tho lady possessing them and endeavor to persun do
ber to glvo up all Idea of tbcre evor
being anything between us
"Is it necessary thnt you should call
to do that?   Can't you write?"
"I committed myself tn these letters
I am anxious to secure and I should
use diplomacy In Ihe matter. Just as
yon have been diplomatic In setting
yourself rlgbt between Franklin and
Nell lllnneliiird By the by, how Is that
affair progressing?"
I looked at ber wltb a cold stare.
"I have finished It," sbe replied roe-
fully
"Indeed. It's a pity I bad not taken
np mine earlier; then tbey would both
bnvo been cnde*d together."
"I thought you said you would end
tbe malter nt once."
"I said I would endeavor to do so."
She bad taken bold of ber engagement ring and was toying wltb It I
knew sbe was meditating taking lt off
ind banding It to mc.
"Tou would not have me treat a girl
wbo loves mo harshly, would you?
Tou know how you have been situated
wltb regard to Franklin."
There was a long silence. I thought
lt lime to bring the matter to a focus.
"I will make yon a proposition." I
snld. "Prop Franklin witbout a word,
written or spoken, and I will do tbe
■ame In my own case."
Another long silence, at tbe end of
which she put out ber hand to me I
clasped It. drew ber to me and tbnt

ef the present dny reached Its flnrrl

Tbo top bat seems to have had Its beginning In the habit of gallants ln tlio

crowned felt or beaver bats and securing them with a jewel. Tbo French

somo Interesting experiments. A race

Reset For Restoring Hair.
Roses form tbe cbler ingredient ln
what Is probably the earliest recipe for
n bnlr restorer on record. According
to Pliny, "wild rose leaves reduced Into
a liniment wltb bear's grease make the
balr grow again tn most marvelous
fashion." Pliny also recommends
"ashes of roses is serving to trim
tbo hairs of tbo eyebrows." Roses
figured prominently tn several old time
strong drinks, sucb as rosa soils, wblch
consisted of rosewntcr mixed with
aqua vitae and flavored wltb cinnamon. The favorite morning draft
among Elizabethan roisterers was
"rosa soils, to wash tho moHlgmbs ont

Remote Origin of Alcohol,
No ono knows wben alcohol was. first
made. It Is commonly taught tbat It
was first distilled by tho Arabians
about tbo tenth century, but tbere Is
llttlo doubt tbat tbey obtained the
secret from Italian doctors, who bad
long been practicing It. Paul Rich-
ter ln tbe Berliner Kliniscbo Woollen-
tchrlft shows that a knowledge of
"aqua ardent," or "burning water,"
may be traced as far back as tbo second century A. D. to a Christian father
named lllppolytus, wbo poinrosiod a
recipe analogous to those handed about
during tbe middle ages.

SATURDAY, JANUARY
lui
T-HE Liberal press is wasting much paper and ink these
days telling the Canadian consumer how lie is "groaning
under the burden of taxation of food" r.nd holding out to
him for relief, Laurier's "Free Food " panacea.
An examination of this particular Free Trade nonsense
is both interesting and illuminating.
We will take those commodities which go to make up
the dinner table of the average Canadian-meats and poultry,
eggs, fish, butter, and bread-stuffs,-and by analysing the
amount of duty paid for their importation into Canada during the year 1912-13, see just how much the consumer
" groans " under their taxation.
In 1913 the total duty collected from meats and poultry
brought into Canada, totalled $1,040,547. If you divide this
amount among a population of eight million, yon will find
that this terrible taxation of meat under which Canadians
" groan," amounted in a whole year to the enormous sum of
13 cents per head—or the price of one-half pound of beef
steak.
Now let us see about eggs. The duty collected, from
eggs imported during the year 1912-13 amounted to $327,123.
Divide that among eight million people and you will be
startled to find that this particular "groaning" was over the
payment of a fraction over four cents per head, for a whole
year—the price at present of less than a whole egg.
We will next take butter. The total duty collected from
butter during the whole of the year 1912-13 was $252,311.
Divide that among the population of the country, and it
amounts to what?—the " crushing " sum of three cents per
head.
On fish we paid duty to the amount of $361,115. Divide
that among eight millions and it amounts to four coppers
p;r head.
Lastly we will take breadstuffs. Duty on breadstuffs
amounted during the past year to $261,403. Divide that
a ..o.ig eight millions and you will see that this " crushing
t ixation " actually amounted to a fraction nfflre than three
c.*nts per head for a whole year.
The total duty collected from the importation of all these
food stuffs, for the year, when divided among the country's
p ipulation, amounted to about thirty cents per head—and
this is the "terrible food tax" that the Liberal press would
make us " groan " under.
In Great Britain, where they have a so-called "Free
Trade" tariff, the duty collected on foodstuffs last year
amounted to nearly $350,000,000, or nearly eight dollars for
every man, woman and child, in the United Kingdom.
Let the Canadian consumer ponder over these few facts,
and groan-for the Liberal press, and the Liberal policy.

WHEN the Pure Food and Health Society of Great Britain
invited proposals for a Christmas dinner every article of
which would stand the tests of its expert chemists for adulteration, not a hotel or restaurant in London would undertake the contract. Neither could any member of the society
be found to warrant his own household cuisine for a pure
food feast. The society now defies anyone to provide a day's
food for an ordinary workingman's family without at least
three cases of adulteration, lt is io be feared that such a
challenge in any other community, as in London, would
remain unanswered.

ife was ashamed ot his suspicions,
yet, like! a Crowning man, clung lo
tbem.
Perhaps It's best as !t ls, George,
she whispered.     You are right, it is 0
rous tiling how the new: bad not become public property in I3ngland!
Perhaps nobody eared sufficiently
rrbout h:ni--not evrrn the tenants on
his estate. There was littlo doubt
that ho hriuse'.t had kept his marriage
a secret. lie wondered whether be
had done so wltb a pnrtosj, or whether It was jus", in accordance with
t rest ot his lite. Ho had always
llTed carelessly yet secret!'— selfishly
yet prodigally. Hetherlngton leant
back ln the cab with a sigh ot utter
weariness. He had spent a strenuous
day and -as feeling exhausted—but
exhaustion came because he was dis
appointed. The further lie managed
to grope into tbe past, tiro ...ore mysterious did the present seem, and the
more hopeless the future. The knowledge he tro eager.:- sought brought
confusion and bewilderment.
The situation was most comic, he
reflected bitterly. He kuc„- who he
was, but not what he was. What
a strange commentary his tragedy
made on modern life! Men and wo
men never ask their fellows what they
aro, neither do they care so long as
they know who they are; a family
troe, a name, a banking account. Sir
George llrtherington possessed all
three nnd l.e was the most miserable
and the most lonoly man on earrlt.
The world would rec.lve blm with
open arms and his wife also; ft Carmen was obviously well lire 1 and her
beauty and fascination would carry
her anj where; but for him the
world would alwayr be a desert, containing nothing but the sand of dead
desires.
It was nearly six o'clock when he
reached l'ormby's ollice. Ho happened to glance nt the face of the envelope before slipping it into his pocket
when lie dismounted from tbe cab. He
paid the chauffeur anil then stood in
the middle of thr pavement* -staring
at tho name he bad just read: Mrs.
O. Soral!
I wbo have been wrong. Oscar Sor

bent down and pressed his lips to the j

quickly towards tho door. I am go

Formby ot our decision. I forgot
what settlement I made on you when
wo -vcio married, but I wil1 see you
havo everything you can possibly
want. Ho forced a laugh. I shall
only require Just enough to live on
Ho was not looking at ber, but bo
heard a sudden quick movement.
You aro very sonorous, George.
He just caught her words—a little
moro than a frightened whisper. Ily
tbo way, do yon think you could 1* '
tho marriage certificate? The lawyers might want it, ho adde-d apologetically.
Carmen laughed Yes, I onroo
across lt the other day when I was
unpacking—I'll give it to you now,
lletherington beard tho rattle of
keys. Carmen unlocked a drawer in
ber writing table, searched amonj
eome papers, then crossing tbe room
handed him a long blue envelope.
Thanks, he „aid, uneasily.
Ho turned to jpeu tlio door, but he-
fore bo could escape, tho sccrlec lips
had met bis with a swift kiss. A-
he kurric-d through the hall he heard
a .-if-ado of laughter—it seemed to
mock him!

C. 0.! Carmen. Oscar. What
else?
Suspicion caught fire again but it
did not sot alight lo hope now. The
marriago certificate distinctly stated
that Carmen Melita, spinster, of the
yia Poscheti, Madrid, had, on the 14th
April two years ago, been married to
George Hetherlngton, Bart., ot Cranby
Hall, Somerset.
Yet what was Oscar Soral's name
doing on the envelope! Mrs. Oscar
Soral, too! Hetherlngton pulled him
self together and entering the bulld-
iug, slowly mounted the stone staircase.   ■
Was it possible, ho asked himself,
tbat ho was an absolute villian, with
conscieneo so hardened that tbe ac-
cusa'jen of murder with damning evidence against him, left him unmoved'.'
Hetherlngton found Formby on the
point of leaving for the day. I am
ashamed to trouble you again, the
former said; but can you give me live
mlni'tes?
A glance at Iletherlngtou's face told
tho old lawyer that something was
wrong. tlo led him into his private
room and mado .lis sit down. Something bas appened to upsc: yon, but
nothing serious, I hope?
Iletheringto.i looked in,o the kindly
honest eyes of the old man. lie
could trust him ho knew And the
desire to speak, to tell some one his
dreadful secret— to unburden his
heart and soul—became keener with
every passing hour, and there were
moments when he feared ne would
blurt it out of a sudden unconsciously,
lie had had every opportunity of telling Carmen bis wife; moreover it was
'. '* duty to inform her. lie had hold
hia tongue!
He could trust his lawyer he knew.
Tho tragedy was he couldn't trust him
self. A woman might lie, might cheat
to preserve ant save the man she
ioved. T-ormby was a m. of the
world, a man of law am1 justice. It
would be impossible for him either
to share or hide Hetliei-ington's guilt
Well, Sir George, come, come, out
with it. Will you take a liquet*
brandy? I always keep a littlo here
in 'case of accidents.
Hetherlngton managed to forco a
smile.    I will, I think.
Y'es! it was himself he feared moro
tban any one else.
Mr. Formby was very patient; he
might have" been Hetbcri. .ton's medl-
eal adviser rather than his legal adviser. Ho waited until th? latter had
emptied hi*, glass.
Don't be afraid to confide in me.
we quite opened our hearts to one another this afternoon. You can't imagine what a pleasure It was to mc
to find thnt you were not the type if
man Cranby gossip had painted you—
but what's happened? Have you run
up against somo youthful indiscretion
—some partt. folly?
It wns Impossible for Ilothorington
to be frank. His dual personality
tripped hltn np at every turn. I told
ycu at luncheon that 1 hnd something
to confess. You wouldn't listen; you
must now.
If you wish It.
I am married, Mr. Formby!
The luwye.* held out his hand. Congratulations, Sir George!
I was marrlod over two years ago.
why I kept the affair
a socrot, but havicg don so, I think
il bad better remain a secret because
1 have made up my mind to go away
again—at once and never return to
England. My wife refuses to acorn-
pany mo on my travels—I made that
bargain with ber some time ago She
will live in London or wherever she
likes—excepting Cranby Hall. I'm
not sure what I shall do with the old
place; it will. I suppose, tall into
stranger's hands ..s I haven't any children. Rather than that. I may give
it away—to one whom I know would
love it and preserve it.
Hetherlngton stopped breathless,
lie had rattled off his confession as
li jfr '*l ' ing Interrupted anil yet
carefully refrained from looking at tire
lawyer. Ho waited with strangely
mixed feelings tor Form s reply, lt
was a long lime coining. When he
spoke, it was in a ealrn Judicial voice.

come to irrevocable, Sir George?
Absolutely!

IIMIERFUL PISCOYEIY
Am era-next scientist, tbt ether day.
(an Us (pinion tbat tie most wonderful discovery •! recent years wu
tb* discovery *t Zam-Buk. Just
think! As soon as a single tbln layer
of Zam-Buk Is applied to a wound or
a sore, inch Injury Is Insured against
blood poison I Not one species ot
microbe bas been found that Zam-bua
decs not kill!
Tben again. A* soon as Zam-Buk
Is applied to A tore, or a cut, or to
skin disease, It stops the smarting.
That Is why children are such friends
of Zam-Buk. They cars nothing for
the science of tbe thing. All tbey
know Is tbat Zam-Buk stops their
pain. Mothers sbould never forget
this.
Again. As soon as Zam-Buk ls applied ta a wound or to a diseased
part, tbt cells beneath tbe skin's surface are so stimulated that new
healthy tissue ls quickly formed. This
forming of fresh healthy tissue from
heloto ls Zani-Buk's secret of healing,
The tissue thus formed ls worked up
to tbe surface and literally casts off
tho diseased tissue above It. This is
why Zam-Buk cures are permanent.
Only tbo other day Mr. Marsh, ot
101 Dclorimicr Ave., Montreal, called
upon the Zam-Buk Co. and told thotn
that for over twenty-five years he
had been a martyr to eczema. Ills
hands wero at one time so covered
with sores that he had to sleep ln
gloves. Four years ago Zam-Buk was
Introduced to him, and ln a few
months lt cured blm. To-day—over
three yearB after his cure of a dtsoaso
ho bad for twenty-five years—he Is
still cured, and has hud no trace ot
any return of the eczema!

On a murder -a-ro in one ot the
southern stales an old mountaineer
was culled as witness. The defending lawyer wns cross-examining him.
You sny you saw this murder committed ?
Y'as.
How far were you from tlio spot
where it took place?
About a quarter-mile.
What time was it when this deed
was done?
About halt-past eight.
On tho date thi3 murrlcr* was supposed to be committed it would be
almost totally dark, and you mean to
say you could so. distinctly what happened at that lime at a quarter of a
mile distant.
Tho old mountaineer shuffled ills

WHEN   THE   EARTH   QUAKES
Stresses and Strains to Which Our
Globe is Subjected
When tho stairs creak and the furniture gives out mysterious crackling
sounds at night wo sometimes sit up
iu bed and wonder if thero Is a burglar about, but it doesn't occur to us
that what we really hear is an earthquake ou a small scale. Tho night
air has caused tho wood lo contract
with a snap, thus accounting for the
alarming sounds. This is just exactly
what the earth is doing periodically.
To a microbe, reposing on tbe polished surface ot the table, this disturbance is probably   as violent   as   an
| earthquake Is to a human being.
An earthquake is a terrible thing.
It comos without warning. It Is over
beforo one knows which way to fly,
and  its  fury can  be abated by no
I man.
I    Yet to the geologist earthquakes are
1 only symptoms. They aro not causes
so "much as results—result.! of great
'stresses and strains within tiro earth
I that cause ellpplnga and siblings from
time to time. lt tho rocks on the
shell of tho earth slip and grate
against each other so much as an Inch
along a Assure ten miles in length a
shiver is felt. A slip of llfleen feet
along a course of 200 miles sufficed
|to bring about the terrible San Frau-
i cisco earthquake and lire.
These strains and stresses accumulate steadily within the earth. The
point at which they have onco found
relief is weaker to resist the ne
strain. It slips again presently. Ily
successive movements lis sides become mure and more displaced. Hock
layers, mineral veins, coal S"iuns that
cross the line of displacement, arc
jogged out of their course. So are
muds, fence lines and brooks that run
across it on llie surface. In tho Ran
Francisco quake one man's front yard
was niovcu twenty feet to one side of
bis house, and in * .other place the
slip line crime so close to a man's barn
that some idles ot straw, thrown out
from (he windows, were carried away.
In Japan a cliff twelve feet high inter*
[rupled a roadway, and thousands of
similar carrrs might be cited. These
wore  primary  movements  along the
I lino of the disturbance that caused
tin: earthquakes.

speaks for Itself."     The man writes.
"I formerly drank so much coffee
that my nervous system wns almost1

because It contains caffeine, the drug
found in coffee). "My physician told
mo to quit drlnkinj. It but I had to
havo something, so I tried Postum.
"To my great surpri: I saw quite
a change in my nerves in about 10
days. That was a year apj and now
my nerves are steady and I don't have
thoso bilious sick headaches which I
regularly  had  while drinking coffee.
•Tostu seems to havo body-building properties and leave-, the head
clear. And I do not havo tho bad
taste in my mouth when I get ip
mornings. When Postum is boiled
good and strong, it is far better In
taste than coffee My advice to coffee drinkers is to try Postum and be
convinced."

Well, it was originally started In order to return to tho senders all letters, etc., addressed to people who

such an arrangement became evident
from the number of valuable enclosures contained in such missives. And

never to send back letters again, but

SPIRIT  Ol   THE AIR
It Permeates the Entire Being of the
Fl/incj Bird
Tho bird ls little moro than a drift
ot Ihe air brought into form by plumes
and tho nir is in all its quills, lt
breathes through its whole frame and
llesh and glows with air ill its flying,
like browu flames, It rests upon the
air, subdues it, surpasses it, outracerr
il—it is nir, conscious of itself, conquering, ruling itself. Also in the
throat of tho bird Is given the voice
of the air. All that in the mind itself
is weak, wild, useless in sweetness, is
knit together in its song.
As we may Imagine the wild form
of tlie cloud closed Into tbo perfect
form of tho bird's wings, so iho wild
voice of tlio cloud into its ordered and
commanded voice, unwearied, rippling
through the cleat* heaven in ils gladness, interpreting all intense passion
through ihe soft spring nights, bursting into acclaim and rupture of choir ,
at daybreak or lisping anil twittering
among tho boughs and hedges,
through the heat of day. like lit tl
winds that only mako the cowslip
bells shako and rU-Vlo tiro petals of
tho wild rose.
Also up9n tho plumes of ihe bird
aro put the colors o tho air tin theso
(he gold of the cloud that cannot be
gathered by any covctousness- tho rubies of tho cloud, that are not tho
pride pf Athena, but aro Athena; the
vermilion of tho cloud bar, and tlio
flame of the c,oud crest, and tho snow
of the cloud and its shadow, and the
melted blue of the deep wells of the
sky—all these, seized by tho creating
spirit and woven by Athena herself
into tllms and threads of plume, with
wave upon wave following and fading
along breast and throat and opened
wings. Infinite ns tho dividing of the
foam am tho sifting of tho sea sand,
even the white down of the cloud
seeming to flutter up between tho
stronger plumes—seen, hut too soft
for touch.
And so tho spirit of the air Is put
into and upon this created form, and
it becomes through twenty centuries
the symbol of diviuo help, descending
as tbo arc to speak, but as tho dove
to bless.—From jobu Ituskin's "The
Queen of tho Air."

and read with surprise tho Inscription
on It:
A Lawyer nnd an Honest Man.
The man scratched his head and
looked nt tho monument again. He
read the Inscription over nnd over.
Then he walked all around tho monument and examined the grave closely.
Another man In tho cemetery approached and asked him:
Havo you found the grave of an

Another Case Where-Life Wai Saved
and Health Restored by
Nerviline
We have all read and heard of the
agonies of sciatica, but only thoso who
have heen tortured by this dread malady ean fully appreciate what lt must
mean to bo cured after years of suffering.
It ls because he feels lt his solemn
duty to tell to the world his faith in
nerviline that Victor P. Hires makes
the following decaratlon. "For three
years I was in the Itoyal Mall sendee,
and In all kinds of weather had to
meet the night trains. Dampness,
cold, and exposure brought on sciatica that affected my left side. Some
times an attack would come on that
made me powerless to work. I was
so nearly a complete cripple that I
had to give up my job. I was ln despair, completely cast down, hocause
the money I had spent on trying to
get well wns wasted. I waa speaking to my chemist one day, and he recommended 'Xevviline. I bad this
good liniment rubbed on several times
a day and got relief. I continued this
treatment four months and was cured.
I have used all kinds of liniments,
and can truthfully say that Nerviline
ls far stronger, more penetrating and
Infinitely better than anything elso
for relieving pain. I urge everyone
with lumbago, neuralgia, rheumatism,
or sciatica, to use Nerviline. I know
lt will cure them."

Tho maiden lady of uncertain age

Certainly, replied the census man,
And did they tell you their age?
Yes.
Well, she snapped as she shut the
door in his face, I am just as old

Oh, very well, said the census man
to himself, and he wrote down In his

BABY'S OWN TABLETS
Baby's Own Tablets are the best
medicine a mother can give her little
ones. They are absolutely safe, being guaranteed by a government analyst to contain neither opiates, narcotics or other harmful drugs. They
are good for all children from the
newborn babe to the growing child.
They euro constipation, Indigestion,
expel worms, break up colds and make
teething easy. In fact they are a
cure for all the minor Ills of little
ones and a box should always be kept
in tlie house as a safeguard against
sudden attacks of stomach or bowel
troubles. Mrs. J. P. Illchard, St. Nor-
herr, N.B., says: "I have found .Baby's
Own Tablets all that Is claimed for
them. My baby suffered from Mb
stomach and bowels and the Tablets
certainly did him good." They are
sold by nil medicine dealers or by
mall at I5e. a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockvllle, Ont.

The Proven Aethma Remedy. Since

sensational methods, but has simply
gone on effecting relief and making
new converts.

He was undeniably from far beyond

along a city street he stopped ln front

ln.

asked,
Yes, we have them pretty often, replied the fireman.
Ever try to see how quick you can

Oh. yes.
At that moment an alarm came ln.
At the first stroke of the gong the
men rushed to their horses, the doors
of the stalls opened and within a few
seconds men, horses and cart were
speeding down the street.
The young man watched the proceedings with admiration. Well, he
exclaimed, when speech returned,

A Connecticut man, while vlBltlng

HIGH  BLOOD PRESSURE
It Causes Hardening ef   the   Arteries
and Other Grave Troubleo
Physlc.ans have always studied the.
pulse, because it gives valuable lafor-I
illation concerning the body's con-1-
tlon of bei.lth or disease. But lt li
only recently that they have begun to
use the term blood pressure frequently, and to rogard the amount of thlt
pressure as ot great Importance. That
Is because thoy now have instrument!
for accurately measuring the pressure
which previously they eould only estimate by feeling the pulse.
Blood pressure or the degree of tension of the blood current within tilt
arteries Is chiefly significant btoautt
a permiinent increase ln lt It quite
sure to be followed In time by hardening of the arteries and by tht degeneration or disease of Important organs,
especially the kldnoya.
The blood pressure ls Increased by
a number of causes that Increase tht
force of tlio heart beat or that contract the smaller blood vessels. Any
excitement- anger, joy, fear, norvous-
ness—raises it temporarily. But that
ls of little Importance unless the emotion It frequently repeated or unlesi
tho person nlreody has diseased arteries. The blood pressure that la permanently high Is more serious. That
comes from long continued mental excitement, such as worry, business anxiety or political strife or from tht action ot certain poisons that are torn,
ed in the system and not properly excreted.
These poisons come from the waste
products of digestion, especially ln
large meat eaters. They rain tht
blood prcssuro by causing the smaller
arteries to contract.
In small amounts these poisons art
excreted at onco, but ln persons who
oat large quantities of meat, especially of beef and mutton—poultry and
flsh are loss harmful—they art sometimes formed ln amounts so large that
the kidneys cannot dispose of them
promptly. When this happens, especially if lt occurs In a person who is
under a constant mental strain, like
the politician, the finnncler or tht
chronic worrier, there ls grave danger
of a permanently high blood pressure
and. following that, of hardening of
the arteries and of kidney disease,
mental disturbance or apoplexy.
If you must worry be a vegetarian;
If you must eat meat do so only once
a day or, better stllj, every other day.
