Glace Bay Kicks on Expense But to
No Purpose—Powers That
Be Show Their Hand
GLACE BAY, July 14—The centre of
interest tonight was the town ha'.l at
the council's weekly meeting wh :n
tho presence of the militia came up;
The town council chamber aad hails
were reinforced, by the crowd in tlie
street.' It was expected that some
action would be taken by the council.
Councillor McDonald moved'a r.-solu
tion, a final clause, stating that In the
opinion of the council, it will be necessary to retain the soldiers -until the
cause of the disturbance has been removed. , _•,.
As'soon as the resolution was beforo
the, meeting Councillor Tobin. 'arose
-and' said that he was going to object,
to the motion being put as it would
ha~ve to be treated as a notice of motion, but-it went ahead. Deputy, Mayor Tobin objected to the way in which
the riot act had been read,,the sheriff
having been brought to Glace. Bay in a
special train the night before and the,
Riot Act having been read in broad day
light when- they was apparently little
He spoke of the hardships • endured
by the women last winter and extolled
them for their bravery. He said the
soldiers cost $1000 a day. The soldiers
were too much under the thumb of the
Coal Company. *• Finally he moved an
amendment, that a meeting of ratepayers be called to consider the resolution and the question of cost.'-
Councillor McDonald said it was all
nonsense about the cost of the soldiers being one thousand dollars a day
and gave figures to show that the cost
to the town was no more than two hundred and fifty dollars a day.
The town's   181 special police
pointed by th    mayor    wll    cost  i<s
much as tho soldiers.
The mayor said he thought the strile
ers as well as the men in the mines
ought to be protected. Repudiation
was the only way to get clear of the
expense. The amendment was defeated on a vote of nine to two, so
the soldiers will stay until the strike
is over. -  _    .
An increased output of 20 tons from
the mines yesterday was claimed by
the company. The steamer Ocean
sailed from Sydney for Montreal with
a* cargo of seven thousand tons. Other
stores are loading.
INVERNESS, aTuly 14—Good order
prevails,,here. The company reports
that four hundred and eighty tons of
coal were hoisted yesterday and tbat
three hundred and fifty tons were loaded from the bank.
More men are, at work than any day
since the trouble began. The strikers
aro gradually returning' to work. A
Belgian miner has been committed at
Port Hood on a charge of assault. Tho
presence of the troops is having the
desired effect. The company claim
they will be kept here for some time
yet. 0   -
The\original intention of the Orangemen of Fernie was to join Cranbrook
in a celebration. Finding this was impossible It was resolved to open the
lodge at 8 p.m. anil to invite all Orangemen " within reach and give a
supper after the work of the lodge
was finished. This was accordingly
done and the lodge opened at 8 p.m.
with Bro. James Campbell,-W, M., in
the chair. Bro. H. J. Wilkes in the
deputy chair.
There was a good attendance, and
after the usual routine lodge business,
the brethren were called to refreshments. There were many visiting brethren who were right royally entertained by the brethren of I.. 0. L. No,
The first toast was as usual "Our
Glorious Deliverer, King William,
Prince of Orange" which was responded to by Bro. E. H. II Stanley. ' ,
The next toast "Our King and
Country,' was responded to by Bro. H.
Wilks. .'   .
The third toast "Our Association at
Large," was responded to by Bro. D.
There was a large and varied program of songs,"recitations-and also
speeches throughout the evening, the
principal contributors being F. Coutts,
Charley Waylett, W. J. Blundell and
John Luxton. ' *   .
The^ meeting broke up somewhere
about 12 p.m-. after a very, enjoyable

quia yesterday -morning opposite elevator C. Co'ombes had been on short
leave the night before and had missed
his steamer.in the morning which had
gone to "Isle Royale. He then went
to'visit a former mate working 611 the
Rosedale and it was this ship that
he fell into the water. As he never
rose from the water it is surmised that
his - head must have hit the side of
the boat probably rendering him un-'
conscious before reaching the water.
The body was recovered after grappling for it for an hour and a half.

forty feet away but before he reached

made a hit, His very dry and clever

, They declare, we should of course
have freedom to speak and write, but
not to preach anarchism, socialism or
other subversive doctrine.
Apparently in the minds of most
Americans there is much' confusion.
One is constantly surprised to find certain people tacitly approving the action, of a lawless public in denying to
some unpopular person the right to express his or her views.
But if liberty of speech and of press
means anything, it means that any
American citizen has the right to say
what he pleases.
He may. attack the government, criticize public officials and advocate any
reform, revolution or doctrine.-'-"'
lie has the right to believe in any
religious, political, or economic doctrine.
But freedom of speech and of press
carries with it a responsibility.
If any man says that* which causes
injury to another, he may properly be
' held responsible for what he ha!s said.

murdered as tlie result of his words;
he maybe held responsible.

That does not infringe upon any liberty which I should wish to possess.
Under thc constiution of the United
States a man may believe what lie
pleases, preach what he pleases and
write what he pleases, But If what he
writes or preaches causes another to

What's this to do with the-tariff?
Nothing. And .Mr. Wage Slave, who
reads this, the tariff has nothing to do
with you. It's your master's business.
Let him worry ovei; it aiid fight about
it. I have mentioned it only to show
you, who deserted the party of your
class and voted for the political servants of the capitalist class, what you
voted for, and how little you "can expect from them.
You will got a subsistence wago,
when' employed, and charity or starvation when unemployed, whether that,
august body of senators , doubles the
tariff rates or abolishes them entirely.
Tariff debates, corporation tariff, and
other rot of like character, tend to take
our minds otf the only issue before the(
'working class now, and' that issue is
the abolition of the capitalist system.
Work for it! Vote for-it!
By Horace S. Reis in Chicago Daily
The approved Republican method of
getting elected to office is' to promise
the voters something. It doesn't matter, afterward, if the promise is forgotten, the foolish votes having been
Mr. Taft a strict, party regular, followed this plan when he was a candidate-for the office of president last
He promised to have the tariff revised— downward. He got many .votes
from those who believed in him, and
who,thought that a revision of the tariff, downward would make 'cheaper tlie"
things they must buy.
Voters who did not understand that
the function of a class government is
to protect the interests of the ruling
class. The antics of the senate, at th''*?
present writing are teaching these
voters that the capitalist class wants
the senate to revise tlie tariff, upward .
And Taft's campaign promises? Oh,
pshaw, what's a promise anyway. The
only use for his old last year promises now Is to furnish a few words of
argument to Senator Beverldge why he
wants a peculiar schedule lowered. As
for Senator Oildrlch—bogjiis pardon
Aldrich—and the majority of the senate, they'proceed calmly on their way
to the upward revision, coolly Ignoring
tho pledges of their party nnd its last-
year's standard bearer.
Says Collier's Weekly, editorially, In
Its Issue of June 19: "It la President
Taft, not tho senate, that must mnko
good to tho peoplo. The fionnto made
no promises. President Taft must olth*
or voln llieblll to prove to the pooplo
.... that tho tariff bill which he
signs is a substantial revision downward. , , , Let there be no mlslako
nbout the facts. In the sonnto tho
lnriff Is not being revised downward. '

' Robert Hunter: Samuel Gompers is
to sail today for a trip through the
chief countries of Europe to attend several important congresses of labor.
He will be.treated with consideration
and respect by the labor, and Socialist
movements of Europe, because he represents two million' of American work
The journey should be an instructive
one. From the time he touches for
eign soil until the day he sets foot in
New York again he will find no work
ingmen with caps in'their hands.
In England he* will see one million
five hundred thousand trade unionists
organized for "political action. He will
see men from field, factory and workshop fighting Liberals and Tories, determined to lake government in' iheir
own hands and to run it for the common weal. ' ■   **
In the chief cities of Great Britain
er he'will meet face to face a single
injunction, and' from one end of Bur-
ope to the other he will not find a sin*
gle trade union discussing or considering the voting of money to employ
lawyers to fight, losing battles in an
enemy's court.'
We are glad Mr. Gompers is going
abroad. We trust he will meet tho
chief trade union leaders of Europe.
.We hope he will discuss with them the
methods they are now employing for
the emancipation of labor.
There is a crisis in this country. La-
hoi* lias nothing ahead of it but irritation, anguish and defeat, unless It
adopts new methods of warfare.    .

"There are many of the younger or

When the firemen arrived from the
village, a quarter of a mile away,
they found Peter Zetklatich, the landlord, who lived on the first floor, outside the house and the doors locked.
He was arrested and will be held till
the case is cleared up, although his
account of the fire and his escapo by
jumping through a window is accepted as a creditable explanation.

Coal  Miner's  Strike in Nova Scotia
Funny  in   Spots-Woman  a
Prominent Factor in
The  Struggle
INVERNESS.N.B. July 12—The Belgian women were out in full force
with the U. M. W. pickets at four
o'clock this morning to prevent men
going to work in the "coal mines. The
Royal Canadian regiment pickets had
been posted. There was much jeer*
ing, and occasionally sucks and a fow
stones,were flying. One man was arrested for interfering with the police
but was discharged by the stipendiary. At four o'clock the men knocked
off work and the soldiers were on duty
and no one was interfered with.    A
sergeant and a squad of five men are
guarding the railway trestle, a mile out
of town, night and day as threats were
made that, no coal would evor-go out
of Inverness. A magistrate was all
ready to read the Riot act if necessary
and a number of special police were also at the trestle.
While the soldiers are here no ser
ious trouble Is anticipated.
One hundred and thirty men were
at work today and quite a number of
men would have been at work, but
they were away on the Orangemen's
Four hundred tons of coal were got
ten out, which is about one-third the
usual amount. ' "
■Turned Down the Mayor .
GLACE BAY, N. S. July 12—The
controversy, between the mayor and
militia came to, an end this afternoon
by tbe police committee revoking the
mayor's appointment of special police.
The .mayor had sworn in several hundred special policemen from the ranks
of the strikers and these specials were
aiding the strikers by acting as pickets
and turning back men who were desirous of working. ■ They have clashed
several times here with the county police and on Saturday the ludicrous
scene was-witnessed of two rival policemen putting each other under arrest. The county man finally won out
as the special turned out to be' an

.Another Funny Muddle
GLACE BAY, July 13—Councillor
Tobin added new" complications to the
already somewhat muddled police situation here today when he swore into
office, a. number of special constables
who were dismissed by the police
committee yesterday. These are the
men who were appointed by Mayor
Douglas the day before the troops arrived. Councillor Tobin has' refused
to tell the chief of^police or the chairman of the police committee how many
he swore into office.

<UNIQN lay) LABEl>
Tlio District Hoard met at Frank and decided
not to accept the finding of Kev. II. Grant re the
Hillcrest pillar work. The Hoard was absolutely
rigid . The idea ot! asking the men to take twenty
per cent loss for their Jiard labor when (lie company
is getting a higher price for its coal, and milking
the men pay 20 (d 30 per cent, more for theii- house
rent. Hill has always been a-bone-of contention,
as he tries to grind down Uio men al I'vcry stage
and they will not si a nil for it.
A postcard was mailed in Toronto to a Fernie
address, minus the necessary stamp.y It reached
Fernie, from whence it was sent'to the dead letter
office .at Vancouver. Tlie addressed party in Fernie is then notified that by sending the sum of one
cent in legal currency the 'post card will be forwarded to the owner, otherwise it* is kept in pound
No doubt this may.be proper and the correct method of procedure but to ordinary folks it looks like
a lot of rubbish.
I would like .to ask Mr. Crawford if
I did any other work such as he did—
dig ditches, pack- timbers, work double shifts.or. dig .coal"when the men
were looking for their rights. I -say
no, W. N. Reid never asked Mr. Crawford to a smoker that the membev.s of
Middlesboro local union were holding,
but I asked him to a smoker that was
gott,up by outsiders as well as members of different locals. It seems to
me no matter what petty position any
man may hold he can act,fair to hid
employer and the employees without
prejudice. . I have said this much iu
explanation of my position.
' . Yours truly
' The miners are an awful mean class of people.
They kick when llioy have to work in a mine where
they get drenched in *'wet places." They kick when
they' are in Tf room that.-is so chuck full of gas that
their lights go out, and when their rooi' is faulty or
their chutes flat. Now you do not find their
-friends, the operators, kicking when they have
to'work in a richly furnished ami thickly carpeted
office where they have all the conveniences that
money can buy.     Oh no. the miners are terrible.
.* "When a strike is on. the employers stop at no
end of expense in housing scabs, hiring special detectives, and put up with all sorts of inconveniences
with materially decrease their output and earniirgs
All told these extras run' into enormous sums. Yet
when honest and competent workmen ask for increases, the total of which would be a mere trifle
in comparison to the sum wasted in fighting them
they a're invariably refused. Yet this is called
splendid executive abililv.       '        ,   ■
Elsewhere is published an account of another
postal gravel train delivery. The surrounding if
ihe case were such that immediate and prompt delivery was essential,, To make a long story short
the fact is that this letter was at the local post-
office from June 27 to July 14. Another letter
was there from June 2!) to July 1-i. 'Ihe geniu-
man to whom the letters were addressed, has a
box in the office, and also inquired daily for letters. Just how this seemingly glaring neglect can
be explained is hard to imagine. , A rigid examination is in order.
.The city-recently purchased a street sprinkler,
one of the latest design, and all that, but during
the dusty weather it is used very sparingly.. hei.
if be kept going by all means. Tt is certainly not
meant to stand by the fire hall as an ornamenL
while the dust is being driven around the streets
much to the annoyance of pedestrians and business
men. (!   .
The action of the City Council in appointing a
fire warden to patrol the section at present being
cleared is timely*and commendable. Prevention
is always "better than cure, and the fact that half
the expense is defrayed by the Elk Lumber Co.
makes the cost small .indeed to the city. This
same policy if carried out tinder government auspices during the dry season to a greater extent,
would certainly curtail Ihe intent of damage done
bv bush fires. •,       -
-. Much has been made of the, fact that the Canad
inn Typographical union has sent word to the P.*'

tinue tonight the U. M.'"Wr. of A. ' =■ Let it   be j
thoroughly understood that the Canadian Typogra
phical union has no connection with the great International body, hut is composed of a few malcontents who jumped from the I. T. U. when   the
assessment was on for the eight hour fight.   They
have no standing, no prestige and their good will
or otherwise counts for nothing.
Thc approach of August 1 brings to mind the
fact that as yet no definite arrangements.have been
made to mark in some way the0advent.of that day
True the Hoard of Trade have taken some steps,
but whether they have been followed up or not is
not .known. ., The day should be marked in some
suitable way, not necessarily bv a holiday or cclc-
n The Itfland Sentinel of Kamloops is the latest
to appear as u daily. The Sentinel was first established in 1H84 ns a weekly. It thrived year
after year and in'July ..8!)7, it increased to a" semi-
.weekly.     It has done well for its.management and
bration, but by some means this, our Lst mile.post
in the, growth of New Fernie, should be acknowledged and honored.'
The accounts that these days fill columns of
the press in regard to drowning accidents, ''got beyond his depth," "rocked, the boat," and other
accidents, seem bound to be part and parcel ol the
annual summer seasoii. The same holds good in
tho "sane" fourth of July "celebration. The possibility __ of such catastrophes coming home never
seems to enter the minds of certain individuals
until they themselves are victims of some such

'*-. The club would like'.'the spectators
•to keep,in mind that it takes a little
money'to run.a club..* There were
over* 200 people" at the game yet the
magnificent sum of $3.25 was collected.- Now this is a disgrace, to any
town, and when the players' lose' a
day's work for.the sake-of sport- we
think we are ent.ied to some- b^ter
support. " We go to Coleman on,Saturday and mean.to win, So come on
boys. The team will be: Huton, Dickie,, Watson, Erskine, Climle, Balder-
stone, Gordon, Steel, Moyes, Thomson,
McDonald; reserves: Berryman.
" Everything is booming in town now
and houses and stores are being built.
Mills & Son have started the work
of a new store beside A. P. Campbell
and both stores when completed will
be a credit to the town. ,
Blairmore' baseball, team did not
come up. on Sunday so a game was
fixed up with the C.P. R. The, result,
was 10 to 7 in'favor, of Hosmer. Tom
Spiers was umpire.- '     , ,
An' invitation dance was held by a
select.-few in the Royal hotel ori Friday night. As-1 didn't get an invite
I was not there but I understand that
everyone had^ a good time ..* '
We think that the'board, of' trade
should take steps to get the streets attended to, as they are a menace to the
general publio in the condition they
are in now. ,
- ■ Hosmer is fairly booming, and besides two stores there are a number
of houses being , built. We have
started a rifle club and now •' we are
going to celebrate Labor day. For
this purpose a large meeting of citizens
was held in the school room on Tuesday night:" C. B. Winter, was" appointed chairman,"with G.H. Dunbar
as secretary. ""A large committee was
formed,, so that if the. miners imion decides to take the matter up and with
the town people in, the same committee
we have every reason to think it wiF
be a red.letter day jn the history of
Hosmer.  ' ;-*.""
A baseball,game was played between
the'Commercials from,Fernie and the
local club and to say the ie'ast about
it, the* Commercials were never in the
game. . The score of 16 to 5 speaks
for itself. ■ ' It was unfortunate that

grain just maturing swept bare and
oilier damage"done in tornadoes that
ravished western Minnesota late this
afternoon. • Three persons were instantly killed here' and this list may
be enlarged when the debris ,which
litters the town has been cleared off.
Late tonight a" special 'train carrying
physicians and nurses , arrived over
the St.  Paul road. "
-, At the first breath of the tornado's
fury, a string of work cars sheltering
100 workmen were lifted from a track
and crashed into a nearby dwelling.
From this mass the bodies of • three
Italians have been recovered, while 19
others were found to have been seriously, if not fatally "injured. In the
residential part of the town buildings
were blown to' pieces, many of the occupants'seeking, protection in basements only to become buried beneath
shattered timber's.
Many fescues have been effected!
One family was. rescued with the exception of a little girl, and half , a
hundred men are .working desperately
throughout the night in the hope of
getting her out alive. -
Fifteen Houses Shattered
At Big Stone fifteen houses' were
shattered into kindling wood, a round
house-demolished, a' railway-coal shed
swept away'and *the.'coal.spread about
like so much chaff, "arid several small
warehouses wrecked: Wm. E.* Chamberlain, a farmer living a few miles
outside Big Stone, was killed and his
residence, together - with every' building on- the place ruined. ^ .
■-• His family escaped, injury. ' It .has
just' been reported .than an unidentified resident, of'Ortonville while driving in the country was caught by the
windTmd-toWh^TfiTirhis-team was
hurled several hundred' feet'r over- a
field to death..'    '* ■' ?..-
Fats 19; Ledger 14
. The Fats sat on the Ledger crew on
Wednesday night, not very hard, but
hard enough to-win. - The game was
loose, in spots sloppy, and no particularly brilliant ball was played by either
side.. Both pitchers were hit hard,
and'Rochori passed up more than he
usually does. The Fats played one
Stlllman, who seems to be a general
utility man for any ball team in,' the
city league. He played with the Fats
first, then dropped into the limelight
with the Scouts, and , on ■ Wednesday
evening he again, rolled iiito fat and
appeared with the bull frog stripes.
Of course the game was played under
protest. jThlsis perhaps the most
glaring breach of league rules that
has yet, been attempted.
Umpire-Kastner called the game on
account of the darkness. 'Guess the
footlights at the show looked good-to
him or some of the other sports:

Football; Lacrosse and Baseball.
The Crow's Nest Pass football
' league was advanced another stage on
Saturday last and the result In, one
match'at least had an important-bearing on the championship. * I refer to
the Frank and Coal Creek encounter.
Frank falling down in this game, the
score being 2 goals to 0 against them.
CoalCr<-*ek now step into second place
and are only three points behind the
leaders with two games in hand. It
appears at present as if tho race will
be between the old rivals Michel and
Coal Creek. Coal Creek deserve every credit for their meritorious win
on , Saturday. The day was not
favornblo for a good display of football,
and it gays much for'the teams engaged that such a good exhibition was served up. Frank have still a fighting
chance for the championship, but a
great deal'will depend on todays game
between Michel and Fernie'.. Should
Michel fall .the championship would
still be an open question, as Coal Creek
havo still a long way to go. They have
five games on their card yet, and some
of these are stiff encounters. Hosmer
seem fated to take' the wooden spoon,
as they have-not .yet a point to their
credit, and it .seems lo me that they
cannot escape from the bottom posit;
ion. The result of their gamo with
Michel indicates an improvement, as
they only fell by the odd goal. They
have shown considerable'pluck in hanging together in the face of adverse results, and it is to.be hoped that they
will get their reward when the Fort
Steele cup ties come on.. „
The position of' the different clubs
on the league table up to and including
, July 10 are here given.

amson was forced to put past. From
the corner kick McGechie got the ball
and placed well up the field, Petrie
fastened on and racing ahead-had a
fine shot,which Horrocks saved.' Mid-
field play followed' until the-interval
when neither side had scored again. ,
' Play was-resumed without, either "of
the teams leaving the field. The Frank
team's chances now looked rosy as
they had tlie hill in their favor..They
soon, became the aggressors, and the
things looked bad' for Coal Creek but
Allan cleaved his lines and Manning
let Hartwell away on the left. He forced a corner of Fagan which was well
placed, but Cardie cleared. McFarlane
and Cardie by strong play took the ball
well afield where.* Chambers secured
possession, and a timely pass let Ad-
lum away with a clear field. He waited too long before getting in his shot
and McFogan forced him to kick past,
a really fine chance toeing lost. Franl-
still hovered around - the Creek goal,
niade headway and Manning forced a
corner off Fagan. This was well placed by Hartwell but Smith cleared, the
bail .landing at the feet of McFegan,
who took-a long drive. .The ball had
Adamson beat all the way and went
through at the far post, registering the
first goal of the* match. The Frank
boys, nothing daunted, took play to the
other end, and Adlum with a fine shot
sent, right across the goal mouth, but
no one was up to' take advantage and
the ball'went past. The Creek were
next to make headway and from a
long drive up field Manning hustled
the backs, and getting clear through
scored a second goal for Coal Creek,
shooting well out of Adamson's reach.
Only 12 minutes of this half had gone,
and, Frank now made desperate efforts to reduce the leeway.1 Flukey play
by McFegan aided them but Horrocks
saved from Hutton and play was in
raidfield again. McGechie was very anxious to win against his old club, but
at times could not resist the temptation to try and walk aroUnd.his opponents. This did not help his side, and
he did not always come out best. Coal
Creel*, seemed to be'„tiring and Frank
forced tho game, b«t coujfl not beat

all right, but it's biit of the question to
win. a game with a good battery, and

NEW YORK, July, 12—A Berlin despatch to- the Times says the present
fashions ,in. women's attire, denounced
by the Vatican organ, are responsible
for a remarkable divorce just granted
by tlie courts of Silesia, ■ On the representation of the husband that his
wife had become intolerably thin a to
accommodate 'her figure, to modish
dress, a decree of divorce has been
awarded to a Silesian judge, .and the
respondent has been declared guilty
in the eyes, bf the law.    *«    -       v *
The petitioner declared that' when
he married hei* his wife was "naturally
a good figure, biit this year she suddenly decided that she must be thinner
to'keep pace-with the fashions. She
began therefore, ■. a strenuous ' cure,
which, reduced her weight 31-pounds
in'three months.
She rode horseback three hours each
morning.'played tennis two hours, and
al hours and ate-like a bird. Hei-habitual rosy complexion. gradually gave
way to a chronic paleness under this
I'egime."She dwindled away in weight
and though she was 5 feet ten inches
In height she weighed only 133
\ She attained her ambition however
and could1 wear a fashionable gown.
When the judge* forbade his wlfo to
continue fading away she defied him.
In tho divorce proceedings the judge
contended thnt his wife hnd deceived
her, husband becalise. he had bargained to marry, a lady of natural ample
proportions. Had sho been 111, It
would have been his duty to watch her
grow thin uncomplainingly, but as she
sacrificed' herself merely ln response
to tho dictions of mad Impulse he now
claimed that ho had the right to be rid
of her.  ,
Aftor a fiery attack on the curront
hnrbarlc styles by tho judgo's counsel, tho divorce wns granted, ■

THIS storm bud passed.   The day
broke culm und  radiant over
; the  castle of   Praslok. -. Sun*
.   shine played caressingly on the
lake and on the hills. *
Markart bad breakfasted and paid n
visit to his horse.' He wanted to be off
by 9 o'clock and waited only for the
prince's letter. He was returning from
the stnblcs, sniffing the morning air
with. a most vivid enjoyment of the
change of weather, when' he saw; Sophy coming along the road. She bad
been for a walk.- Her eyes nud cheeks
glowed with' exhilaration. She: woro
her sheepskin tunic, her sheepskin cap
with, its' red cockade and .her short
blue'sklrt over high boots. She walked
as though on the clouds of heaven,.a
.wonderful lightness in her tread. The
red star signaled the'exaltation of her,
'spirit-- TheVgiad "sound of the, trumpet
rang In her heart!. '"''•', "'
Her cordial greeting to Markart was
spiced with raillery, to which;he responded as well as'his Ignorance al*,

she knew of the real situation. /But if
his tongue was embarrassed his eyes
spoke freely. He could not keep them
from her face. To him. she sepmeda

morning.       *
"You've recoverod.frofh your fright?"
she asked. "Poor M, Zerkovitch Is still
sleeping bis off, I suppose! Oh, the
story's all over the castle!" .
. "It'll be all over thc country soon,"
said Markart, with a rueful smile.
, "Well, after all. M. Zerkovitch Is a
journalist, and journalists don't spare
even" themselves, you know. And
you're not a reticent person, arc you?
Don't you remember all tbo Information you gavo mo once?"
"Ah, on tbo terrace of tho Hotel do
Paris! Much has happened since then,
baroness." '
"Much always happens If you keep
your oyos open," said Sophy,
"If you keep yours open nothing happens for mo but looking at thom,"

"We've said all we possibly can ..to

should perhaps! And now,to duty!" She
pointed to the door of the castle.
■ The prince was coming down the
wooden causeway. He, too, wore the
Volseni sheepskins. In his hand he
carried a sealed letter: Almost at the
same moment a,groom led Markart's
horse from the stables.. The prince
joined them and. after a bow.tb Sophy,
banded tbe letter to Markart.     "• ,
"For his majesty.   And you remember my message to General Stenovics?"
^'Accurately, sir." ' .
"Good!" He gave Markart his hand.
"Goodby! A pleasant ride to you, captain—pleasanter than last night's." - His
grave face broke into a smile.
"I'm not to have M7 Zerkovitch's
company this time, sir?"-
"Why, no, captalp! You see, Zerkovitch left the castle soon after 6 o'clock.
Rather a short night yes, but he was
.In a hurry."    '
Sophy burst Into a laugh at the dismay on Markart's face. "We neither
of us knew that, Captain Markart. did
'we?" she cried. "We thought he.was

"It must be the last for a long time."

TliiSi dny—this holiday which might
be the lust—passed--In a fine carelessness and a rich Joy ln llvlug. Tho
cloudless-sky and the glittering waters
of Lake Taltl - were parties to their
pleasure, whether as they rode far
along tho s.bore or sat

Even of the happier issues -whicli the futuro

VANCOUVER, July \2—With an ingenious mechanical' de**. ice, Dake and
Belmo'nC partners in a-jew.elry business at Bnderby, B.VC.,-started an incendiary fire in their store early on
the morning of July 2 according to a
confession  made by  Belmont" today.
When the store -was burned the' police
■> -
made an-investigation which resulted
in the arrest of Belmont. His confession came soon afterward and Dake
has since been apprehended.
■ Belmont says that he and Drake rigged up an alarm clogk in such a way
that it would turn an emery wheel.
The conspirators for insurauce money
then placed matches against the wheel
and underneath these scattered shavings saturated with oil..
The alarm was set for 1.30 on "the
morning of July 2;j It went off on
scheduled time. .-Belmont and Drake
went to the nearby town of Armstrong
and listened to the fire alarm whistle
eight miles away.
Then they returned ,to the scone of
the blaze. .The stock was insured
for $2500.      .       *' -
Outside cleanliness is less than half the battle.' A man may
,4- scrub himself a dozen times a day, and still be unclean. Good
health means cleanliness not only outside, but Inside. , It means
a clean stomach, clean bowels, clean blood, a clean liver, and
new, clean, healthy tissues. The man'who is .lean in this way
will look it and act it. He will work with **nergy and think
dean, clear, healthy thoughts. .       .,,.. rj     --.-'.'
He will "never be troubled with liverj' lung, stomach or blood
disorders.   Dyspepsia and indigestion originate in unclean stomachs.: Blood diseases are found where there :s unclean blood.'
Consumption and bronchitis mean unclean lungs.
.'■-.-       i • - . '
Dr.. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
prevents these diseases. It makes a man's insides clean
and healthy. It cleans' the digestive organs., makes pure,
clean  blood, and clean, healthy flesh.
It restores .tone to the nervous system, and cures nervous ezhaustion and
prostration.   It contains no alcohol or habit-forming drugs.
Constipation is the most unclean uncleanliness. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure it.-  They never gripe:   Easy to take as candy.

with a rare
smile, Sopby's
beauty radiant
in merriment
His own face
fell as he rode
away. "I half
wish 1 was ln
tho other camp,"
be grumbled.
But Stenovics'
power held blm
-and tho fear
of Stafnltz. Ho
went back to a
work ln which
his heart no
longer was, for bis heart bad felt Sophy's spoil,
, "You can havo had uoxt to no sleep

reproach, miugled with commiseration,

" SEATTLE, July -14—Lumbermen
rom all parts of the United States,
•epresenting Interests that control the
entire timber wealth of the country,
will congregate at the Alaska-Yukon-
Pacific exposition from Monday July
19 to Wednesday July 21.
The Logging Congress' which will be
held in Seattle at that time is' one Of
the greatest annual * industrial congresses now held in the United States.
The western lumbermen consider this
as the" most Important event' ever
known to the lumbering interests, of
-he Pacific coast.
"The ■ meetings will be held in the
Joo Hoo building whicli was built on
.he exposition .grounds especially for
.his-congress. The structure was put
lp at a cost of ?10,000 by-a number of
Seattle lumbermen. The amount to
be spent for entertainment will bring
the amount to oyer $25,000.
- The Hoo Hoo building , itself has
been-designated as ah exhibit of what
the "west can do in lumber'. The pur*
to familiarize the visitors-with western timber. It is expected that it
will, do more to,advertise this great
resource of the west among tlie investors of the east than any other event
COUld. "' r
Keppet were among the guests. Mrs.
Vanderbilt was wearing on her corsage ' a big diamond ornament which
attracted much attention and excited
the   especiaUadmiration of. Mrs. Kep-
Pet- '    ,■        .    .
"I am so glad you like it," murmured Mrs.'Vanderbilt. "Won't, you
please accept it as .a token of my appreciation of your good taste?" and
suiting the action- to the word, sho
unfastened the ornament and handed
it to Mrs. Keppet. Tlie king was near
and seemed somewhat astonished at
such generosity for the ornament was
a huge affair with big diamonds and
worth a considerable sum.    .
"I could not think of taking it,"
said Mrs. Keppet, but, Mrs. Vanderbilt insisted and eventually Mrs. Keppet accepted the gift.
•'That ■ ends the story but there,is a
sequel. ■ Tho noxt' night at another
party Mrs. Keppet was wearing the
ornament. "What a beautiful thing
it is,' said a friend. "Where did you
get it?"'      ,. ,
NEW YORK, July 12—London . despatches to the Times sny that society
