Capt. Brown further stated that returned men bad paid it under protest
and could produce medical papers
that they wero exempt from such a

A. J. Fouracre, secretary for the

that Institution, citing the various
needy cases that thc association had
assisted. Tliey had given one family
?75, another $20 and $15 and so on,

grounds of helping the poor aud those

The Left Eye-Tooth
(Continued from last week)
The dinner had worn to its end.
Not a slngh- jarring note had spoiled
the harmony of 'hut interesting evening. Uncle Horace had been jovla*.
—and not too reminiscent. When
however, he happened to touch upon
bygone subjects in which the supposed Maisle had been closely Interested, Parglter had rushed Into thi
fray and diverted the attack.
Everything wus perfect. Most admirable of all was the excellent old
gentleman's announcement that this
evening's entertainment would form
his sole visit
"I bav.- a lot of people to see and
only a week io do It In," he said
chlrplly. "So you two young folk will
have to content yourselves with a
single peep ut me."
"Quite enough, too! Parglter felt
inclined to remark, but fortunately he'
kept the comment to himself, and
said something polite and suitable,
After dinner there was music. Old
Mr. Parglter Informed Pansy that her
TOice bad improved considerably. He
was pleased, also, to observe that she
was able to reach a top "C"—a feat
she had not achieved in tlie old days.
"But, of course, you were only
seventeen then." bo said, "Bless me,
how time flu
Suddenly lie found, that he. like
'Time, must be*/lyti.g, too. Rising
with grunts and groans, he allowed
himself to be helped into his overcoat, and then turned towards tlle
"I suppose I'm to have an uncle's
privilege," he snid with an old-fnsh-
loned chuckle.
With a bright laugh, the girl raised
her lips. He gave her a resounding
smack. She smiled, showing lemark
able pretty teeth.
"Hallo!" said the gentleman, as he
regarded the dazzling dental array.

"I'm sorry," he said, "but it was
all your own fault. You seemed so
keen on my being tied up to that girl
that I didn't care to disappoint you.
Can't see why you should bother so
much about my matrimonial affairs—"
"Can't you?" shoutid the old gentle-
'man. "Then I'll tell you. For your
own good, I wanted to see you married to a good, pure woman. There
aren't many about In these days.
Maisle would have been a perfect
wife. She would have kept you
-straight. But that is neither here or
here now. I've done with you. 1
might have overlooked your not being
married, but this wretched farce has
disgusted me. Give me my coat,
Without a word, the wretched Parglter limply fetched the coat and also
his uncle's hat. The latter snatched
them rudely, and then Ignoring the
girl on the sofa, darted from the fiat.
The outside door banged ominously.
"There goes- ten thousand pounds,"
said Parglter half to himself. "You
would wear pink!"
The girl rose and came to him. She
dung her soft arms round his neck.
"Dear! I'm so Borry," ^she murmured.    "It was all my fault!"
"Thut's all right, kiddle!" He
couldn't help kissing her—she was so
tweet—so sympathetic. "Of course

eat on the post."
"Well, what's to be done now?" she
isked helplessly.
"Don't know! I.et'B have a drink,
.nyway, and then sit down and think
,er matters."
Five    minutes    Inter,   whilst   they
ere sitting on the sofa trying to con-
,ole each other, there came a tremen-
lous ringing at the bell.
"Upon my word, I believe it's tlie

jiter. "What on earth can he want

was Uncle Horace. An extraordlnu.
change had transfigured his red face.
All the fierceness had gone out of it.
He looked limp—sorry—miserable.
In his hand he held an evening newspaper.
"Take me In and give me a long
drink, my boy," he said brokenly.
"Heaven knows I want It."
The soda fizzed ln the glass. The
old gentleman swallowed tbe contents
of the tumbler, and then looked
solemnly at the young man and the
"I've had the shock of my life," he
said hoarsely. "Strange that I should
come across the news Just after that
little outburst ot mine."
They stared at him in amazement.
Fot* a moment, Parglter wondered
whether the South African sun had
something to do with it. Had the excellent gentleman suddenly gone
clean out of his mind?
"Read that paper!" cried Uncle
Horace. "Read It and you'll know
why I have changed my mind about
that woman, Pure and good woman,
Indeed!    Ha!, ha!
He laughed viciously.
Pargiter snatched the newspaper.
Pansy looked over his shoulder. Then
illumination came. For the Journal
recorded that ln the Divorce Court
that afternoon, Mr. Justice Worridge
bad granted a decree nisi to a Mr.
William Partington owing to the misdemeanours of his wife, whose original name had been "Maisle Harding." There was also a very lifelike
sketch of the lady, which proved beyond all question that Bhe was the
.Maisle of Uncle Horace's worship.
"Three co-respondents!" groaned
the old man. "And there was very
nearly a fourth."
"Nothing like doing things thoroughly," Parglter might have said at
another time, but Just then he was too
much overcome with amazement to
say anything except three Saxon
words: "Well, I'm damned!"
"You had a very wonderful escape," said the old gentleman, mopping his forehead and helping himself to more whiskey. "Thank good-
ueBs you weren't Influenced by me
after all! And now, my boy, I'm off.
It's past my usual bedtime, and if I
don't get a good night's rest, I shall
look pale in the morning."
In order to avert this terrible contingency, Parglter placed no obstacle
in the way ot his uncle's departure.
Before, however, the latter went he
offered a most humble apology to the
girl, and wrung his nephew's hand
"Better remain single, perhaps," he
said, as they went Into the little hall.
"It's safer, after all. And, of course,
I take back all I said about future arrangements. Good-night, my dear
boy. I'll see you again before I leave
With this very satisfactory attitude,
Uncle Horace departed from the flat
which had witnessed this midsummer
night's adventure.

"Look here," ho blurted out, "Somehow, I've got frightfully fond ot you.
I think I shall miss you horribly.
Why shouldn't we really get married?"
"There's only one objection." she
made answer. "I'm afraid my husband wouldn't like It!"
He let her go with a little cry of
amazement. By jove! This was a
iiueer sort of evening, indeed! Surprise followed so hard upon surprise
,hat he was getting almost dazed.
"Your husband! Great Malg! Then

the beginning, but somehow I funked

He looked at her with   tbe   same
hopeless expression of amazement.
"But—but, my dear sweet pet,
what on earth then were you doing
that morning In Bedford Street?"
"Oh, the agency, you mean. Just
paying a visit lo old Bevis for tbe
sake of old times. I often do that.
Like to pop in and see the girls. Well,
Bevis happened to notice my likeness
to that photograph on his desk, and
then he made the proposal. I Jibbed

for we are none too oofy, and I
thought It might be fun. Don't get

sighed. "My hubby spends most of

Who said   the   Cumberland  inter
mediates cannot play baseball? That
the locals are r.dept at the game was
demonstrated last Saturday when
they defeated Union Bay for the
second time In the intermediate
league. Cumberland taxed Danger-
I fleld for 23 base hits and 12 runs, and
j the Bay managed to garner but 9 hits
and as many runs off Hunden. As
was the case In the Japanese-Union
Bay series iu the league, both teams
played big league ball at Union Bay,
but when the teams clashed on the
Recreation Grounds it proved to be
the heaviest bitting team that grabbed
the honors for the day.
Hunden crashed out a home run,
Farmer and Somerville secured three
base hits and Richards smacked out
a double for Cumberland. Richards
had tough luck in the third inning,
when he poled one over the left field
fence with the bases full, only to
have the wind drag it into foul area.
Hunden secured 10 strikeouts in
the game.
If arrangements are completed as
expected, Cumberland will play the
Japanese on Friday night In the next
league game. There "will no doubt be
a large crowd of Japanese on hand
to give the local Nipponese a hand

Rex Ingram's $1,000,000 production
of the "The Four Horsemen of the
Apocalypse," made for Metro is announced by the Ilo-lio theatre for
Tuesday and Wednesday, July 4. and
5. This will be Mie first showing here
of the screen version of Vicente lba-
nez's novel that has been acclaimed
In New York, Chicago, Boston, Pittsburgh, Detroit and Los Angeles as
marking a new epoch In the development of motion pictures, At its New
York opening people paid $10 a seat.
Critics said the picture had definitely
established the screen not -only as
capable of rivalling the stage at its
best, but of surpassing it in its grip
upon the emotions.
Readers of the novel will recall
tbat the story opens on the Argentine
ranch of old Madariaga, whose territories are as extensive as those of the
great independent barons of feudal
times. And Madariaga rules with
feudal power. A rioting, roystering
despot, he is filled with Castilian
pride of family and yearns tor a male
clilld to carry on his tradition. His
two daughters have married ranch
employees—one French and the other
German. Madarlaga's Latin antipathy to the German son-in-law
brings with a dislike of his half-
German grandchildren, but when a
son is born to the Frenchman, Des-
noyers, tbe old man finds his dream
realized. The boy, Julio, is selected
as heir to the hugo estate and is
brought up as a spoiled prince of the
realm. As a young man Julio becomes the companion of Madarlaga's
dobauched adventures In Buenos
Ayres tango resorts. But Madariaga
dies suddenly without making a will
and the Germun branch of the family
finds Itself sharing tlle estate equally
with the Desnoyera. With this sudden wealth, the two families leave
the Argentine for Europe.
-The Desnoyera settle In Paris, and
Julio, an expert tango dancer, becomes the sensation of the fashionable dance places. He meets a fascinating little society womun, Marguerite Laurier, and tbe two of tbem

The Poor French Journalist and the
Rich French Banker—Not a Fable
Once upon a time—a couple of days
ago—a French Journalist shy of coin
of the realm and a French banker,
who has succeeded in cornering most
all the coin in said realm, came face
to face on the "lot" of the Plckford-
Falrbanks Studios. The famous
Douglas Fairbanks was responsible
for the meeting, because immediately
after being introduced to the young
Croesus from abroad, the star called
the journalist, Robert Florey, his director of foreign publicity.
"Here's a fellow Frenchman, Florey. No doubt you two would enjoy
a chat in your native tongue," was
all Doug said ln Introducing the pair.
Promptly Florey took the Initiative
in propounding questions by way of
becoming acquainted.
"What part of France are you
from?" he asked.
"Paris,,' was the laconic reply.
"Have you come to Hollywood to
get Into pictures?" came next.
"Not If I can find anything else to
"WJiat do you do for a living?" was
the third exempllflcotlon of the Journalistic curiosity.
"Just sort of keep track of things,"
and the guest smiled broadly.
*What's your name?" and the pen-
wielder was becoming annoyed.    .
"Baron de Rothschild."    ,
Thereupon M. Florey all but
swooned and Douglas Fairbanks heartily enjoyed the laugh he was waiting
"Ah, and to think I was talking to
the richest man in the world and
didn't know lt," Florey exclaimed
after he had regained his normalcy
ln breathing power.

In every centre of population in the lower
part of the province is a telephone exchange
and an organization of skilled workers to facilitate commerce. Every circuit must be tested;
every inch of wire watched and kept in repair;
every switchboard operated day and night. Not only that,
but there is always new construction to meet the increasing
needs of the telephone-using public. Crews of linemen and
cablemcn, and installers of every kind of telephone equipment carry on this work as the province progresses.

Any information concerning our
northern regions is of value and,
therefore, the results obtained In the
growing of crops at the Dominion
Experimental Farm sub-station at
si'ort Vermilion, Alberta, In the Peace
River district will prove Interesting
o many. The pamphlet referred to
jives In some detail the story of experiments covering thirteen years,
which are still proceeding.
The settlement of Fort Vermilion
lies on the banks of the Peace river,
1G0 miles north of Edmonton and 950
ect above soa level. Thc history is
the usual ono of such settlements,—
ilrst the fur trapper uud trader, then
the Mission, and next the settler. In
1908, the flrst Director of the Domiu-
on Experimental Farms, Dr. Wllllom
Saunders, came to an agreement wilh
Ur. Robert Jones, a pioneer settler
io conduct experiments In the culti-
vatlon of grains, fruits and vegetables. TIiIb sub-station now covers
twenty-live acres. Mr. -Jones Is still
,u chargo as superintendent, from his
annual reports the Information for
the bulletin has been gathered.
It Is apparent that the district Is
•veil adapted for mixed farming, having largo areas of well grassed
country^ which afford ample feeding
grouuds and winter feed for stock.
Building logs, fencing material, firewood, and the purest water are easily
accessible lu practically any location.
In summer, the day, from sunrise to
junset, is eighteen hours long and
the night itself is only a twilight.
These long days of summer permit
Ihe remarkable growth of vegetation
aud its ripening In a short season.
Travellers ln the region are surprised to find vegetables growing
luxuriantly and as far advanced according to the season as they would
be In Eastern Canada. Another thing
that astonishes visitors Is the beauty
of the flowers, hardy varieties flourishing amazingly, with brilliant coloring.
Strawberries, currants aud raspberries flourish, but gooseberries,
plums and apples have not so far
thriven as well as desired. Experiments with fodder crops have proved
successful, particularly with swede
turnips and " mangels. Sunflowers
have given promising results, but
corn in the usual season does ' not
reach the proper stage to make first-
class ensilage, although ln some
years surprisingly large crops of
green fodder are recorded.
The varieties of grain hitherto
tested have yielded excellently. The
bulletin may be had on application to
the Publications Branch of the Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.

Standing, sitting and walking correctly
are the first essentials to good health
and that elusive charm we call style
A LL women wish to be well; but all women
l\ do not appreciate the vital importance
J. \.oi correct corsetry as an essential to
good health. The well-known medical
authority, Alice S. Cutler, M.D., warns us:
"As a physician who knows that if it were
not for ill-fitting and the wrong kind of
corsets we would have very few female in
valids, I am naturally determined to do
everything in my power to educate women
in tlie proper fitting of corsets. Most
learned physicians now recognize thc modern
corset as a hygienically healthful garment
and one that is often the best mea:is of providing corrective support for many bodily
The Original-Unequalled Front Lacing Corsets
have attained their unquestioned superiority
by assisting nature to perfect expression.
Every Gossard is hygienically correct. Properly fitted to the figure for which it was
designed it will give scientific support to
abdominal and back muscles, with no chance
of undue pressure at the waistline; the organs
of nutrition will be free from pressure; the
erect posture which is induced will encourage
deep breathing and thc diaphragmatic mus
cles become strong with use. A woman so
corseted will have the undeniable beauty of
health and that grace of body, standing,
sitting, or walking, which is best expressed
in the one word, style.
We unreservedly recommend Gossard Corsets
as the complete expression of modern corsetry.
Our highly specialized corset service is maintained with a full appreciation of the exacting
needs of the modern, active woman.
