Ori' jyednesdayVniorning a sad accident • occurred'Vat the new tipple which
is being built, at Hosmer in which a
young man - named Derry lost his
life. Derry had been working on the
tipple since its commencement and
was - <vvery popular among his companions. Derry- was working on a
scaffold about.. 75 feet" from the
ground and in some manner lost bis
footing and.fell across a large stick
of timber.* He was conscious when
picked up and apparently not,,very
badly hurt, but expired within Alteon minutes after being taken to the
office of Dr. ."Weldon. During the
afternoon the coroner held an inquest
after which the body was.taken to
Fernie - by his friends of the Ironworkers fraternity.
The1 local lodge;'of Odd Fellows to
which society the deceased had made
application the night previous to the
accident •' turned ■ out .to escort the
body to the train which had boon
ordered1 to run special through, \ the
kindness of Mr. Drinnan. The body
was embalmed'^ by Mr. Scott and
taken to SaulfSte.' Marie where the
deceased's parents reside. One sad
feature , of the accident is the fact
.that Mr. Derry's father is a cripple
rand his mother has, recently turned
blind and the deceased was their
only support.    \-\

Broke Away on Wednesday-One
Gets Cold feet and Returns
Others Not far Away
Five of the Italians who were on
trial in connection with the "Black
Hand" conspiracy broke jail on Wednesday morning at 6.30 a.m. They
escaped through the coal chute by
cutting the woodwork around the
bolts with a knife and loosening the
bolts enough to pull through.
'.Ve-can hardly understand why these
men should have had as much liberty as they-, have been shown, especially after the furious attack they
made on one of the witnesses in
court a few days previously. , There
must have,been some terrible laxity
on the part of the jailor and . police
to allow these blood-thirsty fiends
around without a chain'and ball. The
magistrate we think should have not
allowed one of their number out to
"solicit funds and evidence" in their
own behalf. However, the ,men -are
gone, and there is no use rating
about what should have been done,
but watch the future.
Almost immediately after the,men
escaped,,a large posse were scouring
the country and the. news was spread
in .every direction to try and stop
the fugitives. One man,,. Jasper
Jacino, returned and informed the
police that he was forced to go with
the other four. He did not know
anything ,of their intentions. The'
other four have not" been captured up
tb date of going to press, but a net
is being drawn around where they
are thought to be and it will only be
a' matter of time till thej\ are all
captured. ' Mayor Tuttle' went out
with the-posse and caught sight --of
• one of the fugitives at Morriscy, but
the man bolted across the bridge and
as there was a woman and two children as well as a man between the
mayor and -the fugitive the, mayor
dared not shoot. The Italian rushed
into the bushes,' and though a large
crowd scoured the bushes for hours,
no trace of the man could be found.

Ritract from letter from D.    W.
Hart, Baynes, n. 0„ dated list July,
19M.
"I wrote to two parties this
a. m, answering their enquiries
wardlne land. bMng rmlt of
nnr "Ad" In the ,*T***dger."
To tho Editor of the Ledger:
Dear Sir--1 have been asked several times lately'what the council intend to do with the $10,(300, provided
lthe by-law carrie-j. The people have
a perfect right to an-expression from
someone in authority^.- therefore 1
ask to be allowed through, the columns -of your paper to make clear.
my own ideas as to how and where
the money will be spent.
First of all, I may say there has
been spent so far this year about
52,000, which will be deducted from
the amount to be raised, leaving
$8,000 yet to be spent 'on streets and
sidewalks, First, I should like to have
the grade on Cox street finished,
thereby making a ■ Rood road to the
Annex; .to have the stumps cleared
off as many of the streets in thc
Annex as possible, and to have thc
sidewalk from the corner of thc
school ground across the recreation
ground to the Annex so the people
can have a good dry walk to tho up
town district. -
I should strongly recommend work
being done on McPhcrson avenue,
both in clearing and.sidewalks.
Another bad feature at present Is
thc open ditch on McEvoy street,
which should have a box' drain put in
and then filled up level with thc
street,
Still another very bad place, especially in winter, h thc hill at thc corner of W.R, Ross' Residence. Thc
road thould be widened there as
much as possible,
The utrcet from D.V, Molts corner
south of Park Terrace should have a
little attention.
Then again, out on Victoria Ave,
North, there arc numbers of streets
which have never been cleaned. Thc
people have neither roads or walks,
they also should be attended to.
Another poke of work that should
be done this year is the lowering
of the hill on Victoria Ave., near
thc stubles oi O.N. Ross.
Of course Mr, Editor there are
several .other   matters   of improve*

Expected in the Fall-Parliament
Closes With long Session ,
Ottawa, July 20—With prorogation
at noon today of.the 236 day's session .of parliament, .there is. little
j doubt out that the tenth parliament
of, Canada has concluded its labors.
The . expectation of a general election coming in the fall is general on
both sides of the bouse of commons,
although the government supporters
have separated' without anything
more from headquarters;than an- injunction to get ready.     -   ■
.Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his minis-'
ters will leave tonight for Quebec to
take part in the tercentenary celebrations, but will return to the capital
at the end of the month for a series
of cabinet meetings lasting about
a fortnight.
The premier is much fatigued after
the long session,, and will probably
spend his '' vacation'at his former
home, Arthabaskaville, of which he
has seen little or nothing since- the
house opened..
Among the bills assented to today
were those to amend the Chinese immigration act regaraing the admission of ..Chinese students; to provide
for a court of appeal in British Columbia; to continue the government
bounty on pig lead; "to; incorporate
the, Shuswap & Thompson Rivers
Boom Co., and to "prohibit the importation, manufacture, and sale, of
opium for other than medicinal purposes.

THE POWER Of ADVERTISING
Tt has long been a proven fact that-
judicious advertising will get a man
business, save him money,' make a
fine home possible, help, him to.,dispose of everything from farms to
rummage; invest his money for him;'
get him a wife and find long lost
kin,-, and do so many other wonders
that no one will be surprised to
learn that it has, gotten a man'out
of^a1 * -

"John Silber, of Newkirk, Okia.,
was sent to jail "charged with tampering with a switch. While there he'
read in a, newspaper of an offer of
three dollars for the most original
want ad. Silber inserted the following: '<,    ,
"WANTED-Young man in jail
wants out; suggestions solicited that
might result in immediate release ;
wants poet's address, who wrote
"Stone, Walls Do Not a Prison

Ho got tho three dollars, a lot of
sympathy, flowers and pie, and so
much attention and interest In his

Lewis, national president of the United Mine Workers of America, today

off the mlue workers in a political
way; If GomperR contemplated a circular letter campaign in behalf of
Bryan or attempts to Include tho
hundreds of thousands. of coal diggers who now look to President
Lewis for advice, it is certain that
Gompers will hear from Lewis in
terms unmistakable.

of a certain Count ,1 N. A.'cle'Koi'tsas

and listed only lifty-iwo tittes. It
Ktirreil up a veritable teapot tempest
aiming the .'wise heads. The reason
was not fnr to seel-:—not one of the
books mentioned in tlie catalogue was
to "lie found in any other library or
publisher's list!-. They were all absolutely "sole"1 surviving" copies of Intensely ..interesting works. Iu tlie
words of. the. catalogue ' itself, "the
count ^pitilessly expelled from his"
shelves hooks for which he had paid
their weight In gold—as soon as^lie
learned that a work "up to that time
unknown had been mentioned in any
catalogue",, Each new, research of
learned investigators into the book
lore of jintiipiity. it,was claimed, "had.
.thinned still further the already decimated ranks of the count's sacred
battalion". Weary of his tremendous
aud self, imposed task of collecting

stated'to have died on Sept.' 1, 1830,

One liookseller came all tlie way from

"Corpus .lulls Chills." ,,'l'he Princess
ile iiigiie "for the honor of her family" ordered No. 4N at any price to suppress It on account of certain discreditable family episodes it was supposed
to contain. Many other prominent persons and institutions clamored for a
chance nt the collection. "Men re
meiiiliered having seen books thnt nev
er existed." says William Sbupurd
"The foreman In Casteinan's printing
olllce at Tourney had distinct recollec-
flo-is of a bogus volu.ine credited to his

I'nfortiinately the advertised sale
never came oil. On the 0th of August, the day before It was to bnve begun, the Hi'iiss-els papers announced

THE   STORY- THAT* 1 TOLD
List-to the story that I'told on that eventful night,, "'■._"" ,:
"When I was ushered horn this land of sin and sorrow's plight,   \   ■
Ttiose happy ones failed not to see and read my inmost heart, -
Sc full' of sadness .did it seem that"'1 from them, must part. .' -,
<i .■'.-' * ..
They   begged . to   know "how fared this earth with beauties.rare adorned
.If men had from the book of truth" its    truest meaning learned"?
Alas! alas!   what could I say? (with shame I; crimson grew)—
How could I   speak in lofty terms'and tb myself be true?
.1 told  of, conflicts,fierce and long,"how hatred held us bound,
How' wealthy   magnates'held the   sway on every inch of ground,
And,that the toilers downtrod were,—as worms that crawleth low,
How   might ■ was •- right- and ■ envy; dealt its envious, murderous blow.
How that in luxury arid ease corrupt the wealthy grew
Their..sense of power and luere's'lust their love of right - o'erthrew, - ■   "•
How vengeirice oft her sword   did draw to lay the tyrant low,
"^But darker,  darker,  were the days'and awful was the throe. V   ,
-How, at .their'   will the Nations war and bloody scenes ensue' .
And. brothers, on the" battlefield, in each' their swords pierce through/
■ And toilers use theargument— 'More] room, in this, wide world,;.,   ■■   ;  ,-
If thousands more would fall thereby and from- the-ranks fie hurled."

J told them7   of the heinous crimes which fill me with' dismay,
How man despairing—hopes all fled—walks, iri the harlot's way;
How oaths and curses rend the air as from the mouth of hell,
•And tottering   step and maddened .brain-the ranks corrupt doth swell.
How at the open saloon bar—my fellow workmen dear
Doth    waste , his substance and his worth without a failing tear,        '
And curses then hiB lot in life, down,, down, they still-must go <* '
Their wretched homes and children's wails.yet adding to earth's woe.'

They asked "Were there not some to lead and guide bur feet aright
Through all the quicksands,and the mire on such a darksome night?",,
"With    'downcast-head I may reply—"that selfishness did reign' ,
, .In   temples raised to worship" God arid thus 'twas all in vain.""

Under the auspices of the Belfast
branches of the Independent Labor
party, .-Rev,' R. .T. .Campbell", of New
theology-fame, delivered an address
in the ".Ulster hall on. "Labor 4 and
Socialism.1''" Mr^-.T.'' Henderson presided, and the hall*was crowded,*: the
lecturer receiving an s enthusiastic
welcome.   '  .
,-'-*■ -r".rt'
..-The chairman, iu_.Jbj-iefly Introducing, the lecturer, said Socialism, had
entered on a pha'sV iri Belfast very
different from that which it had ' to
face some- years ago." A Socialist
could now go out into i.the street arid
deliver his, message,',, arid' in spite of
the efforts of opponents from the manager of the tramways down or up
to blinded working men.Tit was making progress, and would make great
progress in the future. (Applause.)
Rev. R. «T. Campbell, who was cordially received, said "it might be perhaps that-the cordiality'of his'■welcome was in part due to the fact
that he was an* Ulster-man himself—
(applause)Tthough absolutely owing
to circumstances' over which he had
no control born in London. (Laughter.) Ho had been asked to come to
Belfast by a great many people" from
.time .to time, and. he never -quite
knew who was who; but when he
was  approached  by the"London  re-
his,, hair    grew   gray—(laughter)'—if
they were to go,to uay other country and parade on the twelfth     of
July,   would     find   that no person
heeded   them, strong their language
about'the, PoDe might be. (Laughter)
The, people - would    not understand
them.   Therparty 'thev belonged ,, to
was local and limited; it was not international;-it did not matter to the
rest of .theTworld,-; .Only to Socialism
had it been, left' to say "We    stand
not for ourselves, alone, but for man;
kind."  (Applause.) They wbuld'.have
observed the protest .in the house of
commons against the visit of     His
.Majesty the King to the C*zar of Russia.   Whether that protest politically, was wise, or-whether it was not,
it   sprang    from the consciousnesss
that the cause of the unprivileged in
in this, country was the cause of the
unprivileged   in ._ that country. (Applause)   There was no ignoring that
movement.   It had\to, be taken into
consideration   hy .   diplomatis    and
statesmen   of   all kinds and all nations.- It was a moral movement; it
was not merely an   economic movement, , and that was why it was being preached     to-day   with all the
forced   fervor.,    of a  religion.   * He
thought    that there were not a few
men in that hall who would say" that
it ought to be, because at bottom it
was    what     the    Christian religion
really - was aiming at—the,.objective

J. D. Krnwcts*. spoke on tho rnll-
ism to labor was one of great practical   importance   at the! present day.
All labor . representatives,and labor
workers .  in the cause of- economic
freedom ,,were-   not' Socialists;   but
there    was a practical alliance be-
.tween     the labor party in England,-
and he supposed it was' the same  in
Ireland. ' He, thought perhaps,    that
relation'needed explaining to, an ordinary'audience.   It  was his exper-
perignce in England that even, working* men did not understand     what
was meant   when they spoke about
tho    Labor   party in  the  house of
commons.   Some ' thought thoy worn
spoaking   necessarily   of a party ot
Soclnlists-ho    (the speaker)'wished
thoy,    wore-fapplausO-an'd    others
thought that Socialism had nothing
to do with tho matter at all,   that
labor   represented tho class interest
of   the   worlrers-that   and nothing
olso.  Ho hoped to show'them that
night thnt In conformity with     tho
Practical genius of tho British pooplo
thoy had managed to striko out    a
useful   working   allianco       between
thorough going roprosontatlvos     of
labor who woro not necessarily Socialists who wore ablo to march sldo
hy side with them towards a more
distant goal.   (Applause.)    At    tho
outset   ho    wishod   to   state   that
neither   Socialism   as    an economic
ideal nnr the labor party ns a wholo
wore to ho identified with any brand
or religious thought or any kind   of
theology-old or now,   Ho said that
because It wns posolblo that his reputation hnd travollod as far as Belfast,   As Paul said to tho mon    of
AthonB ho might sny to tho mon of
Belfast in tho words of tho revised
vorslon-"In all things yo aro   very

put in tho other    wny, (Laughter.)
Ho had    not como to put In a plea
for any kind of theology, either his
own or anybody else's.  Ho was glad
to ho side hy side on tho socialist
platform with mon of all denominations and    with nono.  On tho othor

the kingdom, of, .God upon earth as it
was in heaven, and if that was not
also     the objective   of Socialism he
did not understand the meaning     of
the:. word. ' (Applause.)  What     was
Socialism,  and "where did it.    come
from?:* It was hard to give a.definition that would satisfy' everyone, but'
then he could not get a definition af
Christianity   that . would      satisfy
everyone.     (Laughter.)  The     definition   depended     altogether   on   the
point of view.   It might be defined
from the    material point of view iii
an economic formula, and also from
the ideal point of> .view. Socialism,
like   all    great movements,  started
from an oral principle, "All for each
and  each for all.".   Modern  Socialism'began, in a revolt, and though-it
could be proved that it! existed in the
world for five thousand'years,.it was
for'   practical   purposes   only a" few
generations old.   The theory of'Karl
3Iajcx_was^not_the-thebryiof-thc-r.Lr'
P.   They aid not believe in the class
war.   They stood not for the interest'
but for.the,emancipation of a class.
They did not believe' in a revolution
that wrould'secure "aH'they were advocating  perfectly    complete within
twenty-four hours.. They.were    now
breeding a race of labor statesmen,
who were getting what they aimed at
point'by point. ' Instead of trying to
gain     their end by revolution they
were trying to gain it by constitutional agitation.   He could not, refer
to that without alluding to the debt
tho Labor party owed to trades unionism. ...That    was not to' say that
trades unionism was socialistic, but,
ns far as it went, it had aided Socialistic   policy,    Aftor a   sketch of
tlio effects of tho industrial'system,,
which by the cancentratlon of capital
in a few hands forbad tho workman
to cross tho gulf tlie spoaker    said
trades unionism had had to fight its
way agalnBt persecution and opposition and in the teeth'of tho dominant   school
whoso motto was "Each man or him.
solf,    nnd    tho devil tako tho hindmost."   They had not won tho wholo
battle yot.   Trades unions had dono
great things for the aristocracy    of
labor, hut thoro wero sections of tho
population for which It had dono little or     nothing.  Ho hnd  obtained
somo    figures   in   regard to Belfast
which seemed to show that and    if

those who thought that the alliance
of organised labor, independent *" of
economic theories, with the Socialism of the present' day in returning
representatives to parliament was a
good practical- working arrangement.
He said that, while at the same time
hoping to "live to'see, the day that
Socialism would'be a force so formidable ih the community that they
would be the'party of progress called by that name and all other parties would have to muddle together
for protection against them. (Applause:) He now came to the second
part of his speech. He wished to say
a word upon two practical aspects of
the Labor party's programme. ■ The
people of Belfast were a canny race,
and, - might want to know, exactly
what they proposed to do next. Well
he could not go through the whole
programme but,he could tell them a
little of. what they were thinking
about in reference to the -land question in particular as it related, to
housing. The land'question was ct
the bottom of most of. their social
ills.in that, city or any other city.

they would have solved the problem
of poverty., Oh no no. It was nou
the public house landlord they needed to deal with so much as with the
landlords. (Applause.) The question
might not affect them the same way
as- it did in London, but they had
got rid of the jerry-built .houses in
Belfast? Were they quite sure that
there sanitation was ideal, especially
In the .schools to which they sent
their children. (Applause.) A phase
of landlordism came in there, that
they would havo to tackle, liettcr than'
they were doing, An lnfluenco that
was keeping back tho solution of tho
education question in England was

voice—"Call •.  out    their   names")—
that    they averaged from one penny
to twopence an hour—sweating. Twopence  an hour was considered good
pay, and the rate frequently fell   below- a penny an hour for making the
cheaper,   class of  goods.   There was
an-instance which could be verified,
and more cases would be brought before the public before long where    a
woman made shirts at twopence - per
garment,, providing; her' own thread.
A    stranger'' was „ telling them facts,
that were' at their own door.     Let
these conditions which prevailed    in
the citizens of Belfast see to it that
these conditions which prevailed    in
every industrial, centre, not only    in
Ireland,   biit in   England and Scotland,  were done away with forever.
(Applause).     They had to do r ore
than talk chivalrously about f-ven,
and recognise that they perform functions ' for state as   important    and
more sacred than men.   Tho7 should

COAL    CREEK
4-T ^
A Socialist meeting was held at'Coal
Creekon Friday week:'Mr. Smilli.who
ably presided, deplored over the small
company present and the craving.of ihe
crowds for something sensational,
rather than intellectual,' but expressed
the hope' that Socialism -would soon
make itself manifest in our midst. Mr..
Gray gave a forceful address on "Why
1 became a Socialist" pointing out the
disadvantages of a working man giving
his'childreri the education and facilities
for advancement in the social scale
ofthe present day conditions. Although he may not be able to boast of
thrilling oratory, yet he told his story
as a man who feels-the force of his
message. Mr., Harrington of Fernie
was then called upon to give his inler-
. esling and instructive lecture on "The
History,of Socialism".' At the outset
of his address he deplored not the
meagre attendance as all great social
and political achievements had small
beginnings. Then launching into his
subject he told of,thegreat-communes
and their leaders, how men had schemed and struggled' to form an .ideal
society but all in vain, and through all
"the.various stages of Socialism until he
came to their standing ih the nations ol
the world today, and urged upon the
working classes lo stand shoulder to
slfiiulder against oppression until the
reins of government should be theirs,
giving equal opportunities to all and
privileges lo none. Questions then
were asked for, but none being forthcoming the meeting was adjourned
until Sunday night, July 26th,  when'

the local organizer, W. Evans, is sure
to'aqninge for. another good platform-
Why cannot the local branch. arrange
iheir meetings at a different hour than
the churches ? Probably many church
members are longing for enlightenment
011 this great question of socialism.
Gay were the young men and maidens
fair who boarded the special train for
Michel to witness the football match
between the Creek team and Michel
last Saturday with the expectancy of
seeing the local boys, especially the
"wee ones," find thc nel as easy and as
often as they did against Bellevue, but
memorial curds would have been very
appropriate on ' their1, return with the
score of 5 to o against them. However,
it was a pleasunt outing, many availing
themselvas of the change. We can
only hope theC. N. I1. Coal Co, will
place such facilities'^for seeing our
neighbors a little oftener before us. By
the way, wouldn't it have been line
sport to have seen JucK'ie sprinting for
train at the G. N. R. depot after alighting, not for 11 dish of Yorkshire pudding
such as his mother made, but probably
forlhut which she detested?
Rev. W. Boulton apparently means
to make mailers hum in his church
here. His preaching so fur has been
quilt; up-to-date and earnest, but he is
a young man full of ambition yet possessing an agreeable disposition, who
studies whal he preaches and means
what hu says. Lust Sunday we had

men ofthe C.N.P. realize that theopon

enemies to their welfare than even capitalism? Such places not even robs
them of their hard earned wages for

Mr. Win. McFegan of Hosmer, was
visiting his many friends at Coal Creek
last week., Perhaps he has a powerful magnet lo draw him into our
midst.. •      '    ,

The football cnlhusiasls on the hill
are in deep mourning uh ii result of the
decisive defeat inflicled by Michel last
Saturday. They did not enpect 10 uin
but 11 score of 5 lo 0 was a rcKtilt they
could not have foreseen, The team 11*:
a whole, did well during llio first half
niul held Mlcli-jl lo im goal lead, Hut
a ivaciion !-iM in during Ihe second
half nnd Ihe Invincible forwards of
Michel went through our defence like
water through 11 sieve.1 The goal*
tender being the only man to put up an
elfecllve opposition, but even Hur-
rocUs could not prevent the homesttr
putting on 4 goals this half, The final
result being 5 goals lo 0. This is it

v Britain commenced to mobolise 80
per cent, of her fighting ships on a
war footing to concentrate ''in the
.North "sea for an important series of
0   manoeuvres. «• ■   ' ^
The total number of men-ot-war of
.all classes engaged in the North sea
•operations will be no fewer than 311.
*Of these twenty-nine are battleships,
twenty-four armored cruisers, tbirty-

The,  home "fleet's   three divisions
from Sheerness, Devonpost and Portsmouth were ordered to muster in the
Downs off Deal,' the anchorage taken
•up extending over three miles    from
•off Walmcr castle to Sandown castle.
One hundred ships should have    anchored on Tuesday night, but sudden
fog materially interfered with the ar-
. rangements, and it was impossible to
---ascertain"the exact number that had
-,,got into     position.   The,.oattleships
-and   cruisers will remain     in    . the
Downs  until   Saturday,   when     they
will be joined,, by the Atlantic   fleet,
, and then proceed to the North Sea,
where the channel fleet" now in Nor-
.wegian waters, will meet them.
■■'At Davenport and Portsmouth * on
Tuesday, „ despite the fog, mobolisa-
tion work was carried but with   the
night," the-1 tradesmen of that town
who have contracted to victual them
Were', owing to the fog, much exercised as'to how they were to get the
provision's off to the ships. ■ *   "
All the' bakers in the town were
busily engaged on Monday uuder sub-
coutnicts preparing .bread,-"to the
fleet to the extent of one.hundred
thousand' pounds. Butchers on similar condition's were busy dealing with
trainloads of beef and mutton .which
arrived from the London markets,
while at Dover a contractor was, at
his wits' end to get-off about 100
tons of potatoes and a large quantity of other vegetables for the use of
the various crews.

very salty and steeped in a sour and

raw fish no more difficult to eiit than
raw oysters. With tills course went a1

The elaborate fourth course, consisted of boiled chestnuts nnd 11 pnste of

Increase Freight-Rates Cnly
'/, Solution of fmanciai^Pro-
bicm Says liin Hill
-'' New .York,«'July: 22—James J. Hill,
-'cliairmaa' of the Great Northern railway, is of .the opinion ■* thaf-'the only
solution of ithe. financial prohle'm that
■ confronts the'railroads.is"*an increase
iin freight rates. "Mr. Iiill is strong-
, 'ly opposed to a cut in wages as'   a*
' .means of increasing the' net earnings
'-' of railways.. He ' has just returned'
from a fishing trip in Canada and
made tho following statement today.
"What is the 'alternative hut to
'raise rrtea?" The credit ot *•*<-'" ral1'
roads'has .been seriously impaired.
The way to enhance credit is to in-
' crease rates,   The manufacturers who
'• decry any advance in rates fail, to
appreciate that without an improved
credit, the railways' will be unable-to.
"'- expend the hundreds of millions
which hitherto have made prosperity
possible   to themselves and employ-
' ees. Wages- should not be cut. Efficient labor is essential to ^successful
,  operation.''      .  ■   '' ;,.,'•    *•
-Railroad    employees have peculiar
■ responsibilities; theyi have to meet-a
hard test.   They should-get' fair re-
' compense."

which was the principal reason why
I wanted you'in such a hurry."
"I '.beg-'your?pardon, may l comei
in?" 3sked-a.voic3 at the door, which
was, slightly "ainr,. It was a man's
voice,, and^ spo'.co . with a niarked
'American,accent. ,- .'■
"Co.Tie ih,-Mr.."rpwbridge," replied
the manager'politcly, and a person of
Ettrikiug..appcnvance'.entered; a man
of thirty-two. or-three, perhaps, tall, *
cle.*\n-shaven;, .with" thick, fair hair
parted in the middle/dark brows, and
black-lashed,-.narrow, yet .bold, gray
eyes. He was handsome, exceedingly
.well dressed,.-with-an ■■ ir of wealth-
and prosperity which'1.' . almost aggressive. His glance,il,.,-it* for a few
seconds with flattering admiration
upon shabby" little -Elspeth; yet tho
girl was .ungrateful enough not to
like the newcomer,'
"So sorry ' to - interrupt, but .I'm
badly in'need of your help; Mr. Mc-
Gowan," gaid he, laughing in a
friendly way. "I'm a busy man, and
can't let everything slide, even up
here, while I'm taking a vacation.
My correspondence has run miles
ahead of ms. Can you recommend'
anybody in the. neighborhood who*
can write pretty" woll from dictation?"
"This young lady ' will be able to
help you, I think. She has just come-
to act as my secretary, but I can
spare her, for some hours a day to
guest? of the. hotel who want her' services.""   '
"What an odd coincidence, and a
lucky one for mo. Introduce me,
plcns-e," said Mr. Trowbridge; and the
stenographer i-hould have been more
.than ever fluttered thus to be intentionally (no doubt that it was inten-
'lionally) raised to a footing of social
iqunlity by a younp.-and handsome
nan,' evidently a person of import*
ince in the' world,   ~ ~ -      ■
Mr. McGowan obeyed, and, Mr.
Trowbridge made,himself agreeable
So Miss Dean, looking-at Jier with an
expression which seemed to say,
"What a surprising thing to find'such
a pretty girl in your position. I admire, you immensely, and want you to
lik6""me.f'      ■ ■• ...
Still1, Elspeth (lid" not like him.
"There's something that doesn't ring
true," she said-'to herself.-And she
did not believe that it .va's a coincidence that Mr. Trowbridge had happened to ask for a secretary, at the
• very moment when she had arrived.
She.had ah idea that,he had come to
Mr. McGowan's door with some.other
object, that he had.overheard a'word
or two of the conversation, and had
taken his cue from"it. Still, even if
she were, right in' <he surmise she
had to remind herself there was no
great harm in what Mr. Trowbridge
had done'..J-Probably the man1  must
-'want help with his, correspondence,
for she was-uot such a radiant beauty
, that lie should invent a need solely
'as an excuse for,enjoying her society
for an hour each day. Such things
might happen' in novelettes! but not
in  real-life; and in  any    case  ,-Mr.
.-Trowbridge - could  hardly   have  seen
her face, through0the crack of.the door-
before putting  his  question  to   Mr.
McGowan. --•  « <■
— 4ii~Jivr;~lillLluico—4U— 4^ «a^racm..iC4i— t'lion-
'Miss Dean should work for the newcomer for an hour.a day. She was~to
go to his private sitting-room from
six o'clock till seven each ' evening.
"That "time's to be mine from now,"
he said. ''If some'days I shouldn't
need you, why"if,you don't-mind I'll
lend i.you to a friend;, lots of people,
ladies especially, would be only too
thankful to get a few notes written
for them while they, are resting on
their sofas between tea and dinner;
b-t r.-'Wt-b-1-■•■.-, I shall be able to
spare you often." "
I.I.*. Trowbridge was to pay the
management seven shillings and -sixpence an hour for the privilege of
Miss Dean's assistance, and Elspeth
began to see that it was not entirely
from motives of philanthropy that
, the guests of Loehrain Castle Hydro
were to be supplied with the services
of a stenographer. The appointments
already mado for her, would put-
Hpyontoen shillings and sixpence
daily,- except on Sundays, into the
pockete of ' the management, and
doubtless it would eventually work
out to moro. In this way, Mr. McGowan would get all tho help ho had
from hor for nothing, whilo tho hotel
mado monoy out of tho arrangement
besides. But this did not matter to
the girl, Sho was moro than satisfied
with, hor two guineas a week, her
beautiful surroundings, and the prospect of an interesting and exciting
life.     ■ ,
"Mr, Trowbridgo is ah American
millionaire," explained tho manager,
whon lio and Elspeth wore alono to-
gotlior again. "Ho'h only boon hero a
fow days, but ho has already mado

Ito seemed to IClfipeth that she had
strayed * into a wonderful story book.
She had nevei .-ten anything like
Loehrain Castle,, and eouid hardly
realize that it was a-hotel. There wero
drawing rooms, and reading-rooms,-
and writing-roomn. and conservatories to see. and stones to hear of what,
i each had b„ien in tlie past; for-Mrs1.
Warden had known the place when it
had belonged to Lord Loehrain. "Pooi
old man, he's dead now; died of grief
over the ruin "' the family fortune,"
sighed thc housekeeper, "as ii his,
own private sorrows.'were not enough*'
He went before there was any idea of
turning the Car-nit into a "hotel, oi
that would have killed him, for sure,
such, such a proud man he was,
thinking all tbe world of his" family
history, aiid the part his people and
theii house bad played in' the past,
Loehrain was 'a gieat mime in old
day's, miss; and tlie Marquises of
Loehrain were among the highest in
Scotland. But for' the last hundred
years oi- more theii fortunes • hav.;
been" going down. Superstitious folk
said it was jbscaiise an old famil;,
prophecy wiis being fulfilled; but
that's a long story;"never mind , it
now. Tlie poor old Marquis died, and
the new one is.'a distant cousin, quite
a common man on -one side, ■ who
would,never have inherited if- it
hadn't'been for .an awful thing that1
happened in the uld lord's immediate'
family? a good umnjv ycarsi'ago. *
. "It was this new man sold the
castle to Mr. McGowan, or rather to
some rich gentlemen Mr. McGowan
influenced to "buy it for a hot*'., and
to make' ,him -manager. Young Lord
Loehrain—though, not so very young
(except as computed with the old
lord), was glad to get rid of the place
it was in such awful repair, and he'd
■ nothing' to keep it up with, so he sold'
4it for a song, and all the' old famih
portraits, sand tapestry, and armor.
It did seem*-a cruel shame.' Luckily
for him, though, they didn't .want tin-
whole .estate; only just" tlie park, a,-
pleasure grounds for the hotel guests
and Lord Lochiain was obliged to
keep the rest. But.- would you believe
it, coal.has been.found now on a dis"
tant part ot the land, and he'll have
a great fortune,' after all?"
