A 0. C. TOOTHPICK—80ME OF PERNIE'S TIMBER-Photo by Bpildlna
LONDON, Oct. 17—Spanish anar*
chists in London are openly threatening the life of King Alfonso, and are
boasting that he will not be permitted
to live the year out. Malatesta and
others of the more rabid anarchists
are actually inviting reporters to accompany them' to secret meetings to
listen to firebrand speeches. Some
of them have shown reporters laboratories with newly devised bombs,
wherewith they hope to- be able to
fake the lives of European monarchs.
The outbreak of Ferrerism which is
convulsing the continent reached England this afternoon, and evening and
London witnessed scenes duplicating
those enacted in Paris and other European capitals. ■ Following a demonstration in Trafalgar Square, 10,000
malcontents rushed" to the Spanish
embassy in Grosvenor "Gardens, by
way of Whitehall and Victoria streets
and succeeded in reaching it in spite
of frequent' charges by the police.
The embassy which was guarded by
a .strong forco of police, escaped'- any
■damage^1—*I-Iand-to-h and-f 1 ghts-occur-
red, missiles were thrown and sticks
and umbrellas were used.
Grayson's Fiery, Speech
A- demonstration occurred outside
Westminster cathedral where a' Catholic priest was-threatened. The police
were unable to stop the rioters oi- keep
them in check and not a single arrest
was made. Victor Grayson, tho stormy
petrel of parliament, made a violent
speech in Trafalgar Square this afternoon, iu which he announced the expulsion of tho Spanish ambassador
would bo moved In the house of commons Monday. His speech is the
strongest thing delivered from, any
rostrum in England. Ho sulci tho murdor of Ferrer wns a local outrage on
cosmopolitan feeling. "It meant not
only the death of ono grout worthy
man but. was an insult to the Intelligence of Europe,' he'said. "I believe
tho prlco of Ferrer's lifo will bo pnld
long hence. If tho bonds of all' the
kings of Europe weer torn from thoir
trunks tomorrow it would not. pny tho

Fierce Fighting   ,.
The demonstrators then decided ,to
rush the Spanish; embassy,and headed
by a black, banner inscribed "To Hell
With the Murderer Alfonso," they
made their, way down Whitehall. Near
the war office 200 police charged the
line and succeeded in seizing several
banners, but the great wave of rioters swallowed them up. Several injured are here at the Westminster
hospital. The mounted police-made
another effort to'stop the procession,
but the check was only temporary and
the crowd, with'a dangerous temper,
rushed on, singing the.Marseillaise.
It was a battle eyery inch to Grosvenor Gardens, ) where"' the Spanish
embassy is located. Here the fight
became the. fiercest and hand to hand
fights occurred. The police attempted to make several arrests, but the
prisoners were rescued by their comrades. Police -reinfoi'cementskseemed
unable to cope with the mob of riot**

Boy Orator Leads Off
The meeting was opened by Lawrence Pickup, tbe socialist boy orator, who said that Ferrer bad been
hounded to death by the Roman Catholic church because he had founded
schools of modern thought for the uplifting of people who were living in
darkness and superstition, taught by
the orthodox church.
A. Cameron followed along the same
lines, strongly condemning the'Spanish
government for taking the life of one
who was endeavoring to uplift tho people, He rejoiced that under the British fjag he had the liberty to express
his .opinions, and he maintained that
the same liberty should be enjoyed in
every part of the 'world. . '
W. Hemming referred briefly to the
career of Prof. Ferrer, and said the
■whole Christian church was to blamo
for the murder of that good man. The
church had always been opposed to intellectual freedom, and the pages of
history weer stained with the blood,of
many martyrs wlio had been killed In
the name of Christianity.

Personal   Mention
• Sir Edward Henry, coramissisoner of
police was struck repeatedly, the rioters nearly unhorsing him. The inspectors struck out^yith their clubs and
charges were frequent. ' Finally with
the weight ,.of reinforcements the polico drove the rioters back to Grosvenor hotel. Hore they were dispersed, but. they came back and wero
driven* to Hyde Park comer, whore
they melted. It was Iho fiercest demonstration England has witnessed in
many yenrs.
The Feeling In Winnipeg
A demonstration of protest'against
tho execution of Francisco Ferrer by
the Spanish authorities wns ■ held In
Winnipeg Inst, night. Tho demonstration wns not marked by nny of those
scones of violence which have occurred In London and somo of tho continental cities, but was pcnceuble and orderly throughout. Thp proceedings began with a mooting at* tho corner of
Main stroot, and Stella avenue, whoro
a crowd of about 150 peoplo gathered,
nbout. hnlf of these afterwards form-
lug Into a procession nnd marching lo

"We are the victims of popular ignorance, declared Barnes, and pointed
out how tho conscience' of the people
had been* aroused by the Dred Scott
decision and tlio death of John Brown
before the Civil war, and later by thc
assertion of Goorgo Baer, Pennsylvania
coal baron, that he had been divinely
appointed to superintend the digging
of coal.

"We must change the cry of 'The

"The King is dead—Let us Bury Him,"
said Barnes.
"Tlie foulest and most" indelible
stains that ever disgraced the American press are tlie headlines over tlie
stories relating to the arrest, trial,
condemnation, execution, and European indignation over the assassination of Professor Francisco Ferrer,"
was Dr. Axel C. Gustafson's introduction to his address.   *

case by tho great American press bo-
comes* known, as jt must shortly,

Press   Disgraces   America
"The press articles show thai the
writers know absolutely nothing about
Ferrer and that they have simply published all the calumnies and lies that
tbe Maura-Cierva ministry has disseminated lo prejudice1 public opinion
against the greatest educator of the
growing generation ever born,
"Ever since Ferrer's arrest I have
ransacked the libraries for all information concerning this wonderful mnn
to replenish my scanty resources but
havo been unable to find the least bit
of record of his life or work-, The various biographies and dictionaries do
not even havo Ills namo, and yet tho
whole of Europe Is in commotion over
his murder,
"At the beginning of tills century
Francisco Ferrer of Borcelonn made
up his mind Hint his country must bo
rodoomed from medieval despotism,
and (hut the mil lonal education of the
children was Hie surest means to that
end. This tusk was appalling,

Civil Trial Fruitless
"After his previous arrest Prof. Ferrer, notwithstanding having been in
prison for thirteen months was finally
brought to trial. * The Spanish • government had done its utmost to get
his case tried by a court martial, but
the'public opinion of Europe, as well
as the direct intercession of King Edward of England, caused' thorn to refrain. As a result not only was he
acquitted and found guiltless of ■the
charge, but the expenses of the trial
had to be paid by the government, and
the decree compelled them to return
the funds to Ferrer, which upon his
arrest thoy had confiscated. This time
they know fully that with a civil trial
whore evidence had to be heard and
the public admiited, they had not a
ghost of" a show-.of Ferrer's conviction.
"But before a court martial with
enclosed doors, with ho presentation
of evidence except that which was intended to convict him, with no power,
of rebuttal, the captain general, whose
word would bo final, .knowing that
Dom Antonio Maura would take away
his commission if he" allowed Ferrer
to escape, had no other recourse. Ferrers conviction was certain before the
trial started.
One of World's Greatest
:"You will not wonder, I know, if,
with facts like- these before me, I refuse to even attempt by facts, which
are irrefutable, to show that Prof. Ferrer had no part or share in the uprising af Barcelona: I consider that
Hie' mere effort in that direction, with
such a glorious record as he had reconsecrated and masterful devotion
to the elevation of the world through
rational education of the young, would
be to smirch his-clean and stainless
memory. I affirm, and history ' will
bear me out in this assertion; that
Prof. Ferrer was one of the, grandest,
truest' and most consecrated men to
the cause of liberty, justice aiid ideal
happiness that ever lived.
The-commotion-i n—EuTope—orei—hi s*
murder has'only commenced. It will
reach in deeper and deeper circles, all
the truest men and women in the
world until his marvellous educational
methods will become universal, not
only in Spain, not only in Europe but
even America will be enfranchised and
a now world witli justice, contentment
happiness and infinite hope of progress
will be established."

"Wheneovr a crime is committed, if
there is no one else to object, the Socialists will object," said County Secretary Fraonckel iu opening the mooting,

DON'T MAKE A NOISE
Sit! Don't make a noise, or you might*wake
the eouneil up to the advisability of getting good
clean, healthy -water down to the Annex and district, from where almost.cvery day a miner or some
other poor unfortunate is, carried to thc hospital,
suffering with fever. Every few' days a death
occurs, till now it has become so alarming as to call
i'or .some special "attention.      The fact that tlie
_ Jai*g__i__,iui-j_i_l4__^^
from this part of the city, where city water is not
available, leads one to suppose that the late JMecli-
ciil Health Officer was right in posting up notices
that the water of the wells in West Fernie.   thc
.Recreation Grounds and tlie Annex was unfit for.
use.     That was fine to go'lo a district whero no-.
* thing but 'unwholesome water Avas to be had and
say "Don't use il."     What wero the people to do?
Live without water?.     Sure; we. the city council
''  , of the city of 1-Y»rnic have mere to attend to than
ihe health of a few laboring plugs. "We must raise
officials' salaries, rush through park sites, power
.plants and civic buildings, but water, bah! That is
i\ moiv nothing.     ]l''tlu\people dn not want to use
the well wafer Hint we as an august and duly i|hnl-
ified body have condemned, let them leave it alone!
We have all Ilie water wo 're.ipiiiv at "Our." homos.
That is the fever situation in Ferine today in a nut,
shell.     II. would cosi approximately three hundred
dollars to have laid a pipe down to this district,
and loft an open tap where people who are paying
luxes to support tho city, could have got al least
pure wnter.
Would the aldermen give bad water to their
horses or dogs? No, thoy value them,'but men's
lives are cheap, the country is flooded witli men,
womon and children and they are a drug on thn
market, so let them go,
A civic olcotion will be on soon. See that you
put in two or throe, men that will pay more attention to the lives of workingmen and their families,* and do the other work after.
brought, into the limelight soon if a* move is not
immediately made to stamp out this evil.
The foreign members of the II. M. W. of A.
are the ones usually picked for these swindles, because of their ignorance of the customs of the country. ■ Left alone-.the Italians and Slavonians are
the most honorablejnon in the camps, but .taken
tlie.-way they are it is.no wonder they fall such an
,casy prey to these bestial vampires. "Old Fighting 13iill" the president ol: this District, as well as
the other officials, arc determined to see that the
foreigners get as square a deal as any others, and
for this reason are going to push a .very, vigorous
campaign, against this thieving policy, no matter
who the culprit may be—so beware.
Following is Manager Stockett's letter admitting
the fact of corruption:'     ,     '
' Hosmer 13. C, Oct. 16.
Win. Powell, President District IS'lL JI.'W. of A.
Fernie, 11. C.
Dear Sir: Hereafter the superintendent only
will hire all of the men, and I think it would be
well to send a letter to the local union* here, calling
attention to the fact, that tne employee who offers
or pays a bribe, is as guilty as the foreman who
accepts it, and that the Company hereafter will
discharge any employee-guilty of these,,offences,
and that if an employee is'so discharged, he will
not be upheld by the union.
This, with the other action I have taken, should
effectually break up the practice;
-Yours truly;

In connection with the inquest held last. Friday

the verdict was otic of the most sensible that has
been rendered, and the jury should lie compliment-
i'd on their work,1 The president, vice-president
and secretary-treasurer of the district did good
work also, and obtained some good points, and
showed that they are always on the alert in the
interests of the workers. Too many deaths have
been passed off as "accidental" and no recommendations appended. This has got; to stop. The toll
of capitalism is too- strong.

Quite a crowd visited Coal'Creek on
Saturday to take in the great football
match, Coal Creelc vs. Coleman. We
hope they were, satisfied because we
were not by a long way. However
the* joke was on tho C. N. P. league
committee and we hope tliey thoroughly enjoyed it.
Vice-President Stubbs, Secretary-
Treasurer Carter and Board Member
Whitehouse were amongst'the visitors
to the Creek on Saturday'for the football match, ,
The usual pay night crowd visited
Fernie on Saturday night lo take in
the attractions of B. C.'s premier city.
The picture show was crowded and it
certainly, was a good 25c worth. Out
of the first fifty, who entered the opera house over one" half came from the
same place, Whitehaven, Eng. We
counted them, so we know. Of course
there,were the usual number on the
train going home who had imbibed too
■ freely of cold tea and peanuts, but the
behaviour was good.
We think we are entitled to a little
more consideration by the M. F. and M.
on pay Saturday nights,. Two coaches
for about 500 people is scarcely what
one would call sufficient. The company put notices up threatening to
prosecute any one standing-'on the
platforms. There was no other place
for them on' Saturday. We noticed
the conductor did not order them inside, same as he usually does. , The
reason was obvious that;-* there*was no
inside, .the coaches being a solid block
from end to end. It was tlie'' same
coming back. We look to see this
.remedied in the future.

Editor  Ledger: <• ■>■
Sir: The, seeming interest that has
recently been displayed in labor organizations by some of the newspapers of
this country, ami particularly in our
own district by the papers of the
Foothills .lobbing Co,, is now showing
itself in its true light.
The struggle of the workers in the
east has brought, out some' of the
pseudo labor leaders, who enter the
columns of that part of tho press
that is every ready to back up the
cause of the master class against the
slave, loudly declaiming against outside interference by labor leaders of
another country, and.against tlie International organization of the workers.   ?1 '   .
Such resolutions as have recently
emanated from that august body
know as the Canadian Federation of
Labor, readily show, at least to those
who know what that body is, the
purpose of such,a pus exuding bunch
of political ferunculi.
We are told by certain newspaper
men that if the officials of District,18
will officially denounce Socialism and
the Socialists, that we can havo their
supporf; seemingly entirely forgetful
of the fact that the ; miners in the
Rocky Mountain- constituency", chose
as their'representative at.'Edmonton,
C. M. O'Brien, a straight Socialist,
and. that in the last convention held
in'. Lethbridge they .adopted a Socialist
resolution—-with*— only-^oue—dissenting-
vote.     ' ■■■'-,
In. a coiivel-sation recently Mr. Barrett of the Foothills Jobbing Co., stat-.
ed to a miner at Coleman "If District
IS will place in' its constitution a
clause to the effect that they will
agree to .be bound -by tho decisions of
all chairmen of boards, appointed under tho Industrial Disputes Investigation Act, then we will fall in and support them.' , ' .,
'This is a raiher bald'way of ox-
plaining the position of the Coleman
Miner, and any and all who encourage and support it,
If the mine workers of district 1J
will agree to submit peaceably to the
dictates, of their * masters entirely,
they can got tho support of not only
tho Coloman Minor, but of overy member of tho master class throughout,
Canada, and would bo hailed by every
prostituted nowspnpor man in • the
country as the greatest and,most successful labor organization history has
ever seen,
Mino worltej's of District 18; If you
think you cnn fill tho hungry moutliB
of your families nnd yourselves, wllh
the goodwill of your masters, then
hurry up nnd plnco this clnuso In your
constitution, nml become the abject,
misorablo bIiivcb that mich muton**
would hnvo you be,
MINER.

Editor Ledger:
Sir: I have just received copy of
Ledger for lGth inst,, containing news
,of the demise (pf F. 11. Sherman, and
truly I enver received a greater shock.
Although knowing personally how he
has suffered for years 1 did not expect
such an early culmination in death.
Will you kindly publish these few lines
of mine as a testimony of the respect,
yes, and love, of dear old Frank, because I loved the man. I have been
by his side in many a fierce fight, political aiid social,'and that is'how I
came to know him as he was, and truly
he was a man worth knowing, and' if
In the unknown future it is possible 1
shall meet him again, I feel he will
be the same, old sincere, honest, unwavering, astute leader of the forces
of labor. Never was his moral and
physical courage brought out in . a
greater degree than it was when he
left his bed to take up the last fight
before the board of inquiry in McLeod
on May 20th, travelling through the
dangerous and difficult places of Lille
and Hillcrest mines to enter minutely
into the details of the cases to be' decided for or against the men he represented, iu District IS. *   ,*
My mind goes back to the first time
I met him iii Morrisey, when I* came
to the country first. There he was,
a small man physically, but a giant
morally, fighting the powers of capital
in its fiercest aspect as checkweigh-
mari, having to'defend himself against
the personal violence of a man who
was determined that the miners should
not have their just dues, and it is with
■^iclF"lTMfessnrirK~IT'ur(r'fnisT^tage'
of its existence the *U. M. W. of A. in
Canada had such a leader as- F. H,
-Sherman. ,
His career on Lhis-earthy sphere is
at, an end, but the moral force and
lessons lie lias taught and left behind
lilm will .live forever in this country,
Now I' trust enemies and friends will
join to honor the dead hero, and the
needy living loft behind to battle with
this hard, cold world for mere existence. How his family'will miss him
■—such a father nnd husband, yes, seldom it is that we meet such a one, and
how considerate of others" failings, my
own personal ones, and thoso of others
as woll, i
When Frank Shermnn gnvo advise I
felt, it wns for my good, and hnd I
followed It mnny a time I should havo
boon a bolter man physically, montnlly
and morally today, and I know in tho
eternal ordor, of tilings, he will bo n
striking figure In somo other oxlst-
onco, whuiovor form that will take,
nnd when it Is decided how and In
whnt form n monument will he erected, to perpetuate his memory In Dint.
18 I will contribute my own mlto and
do my best.' to induce others of my
comrades |n Ihls cornor of the District
to do tho same,
Adieu, Frnnk Shermnn, thy memory
will live with mo whilo In tIiIh mortal
frnmo, and without detracting from tho
personal'respect I feel for the comrado
th.at fills his chair, may ho also turn
out to exemplify Ills departed comrade,
Yours In the utornnl fight,

THE DISTRICT. LEDGER, FERNIE,    B.  C. OCTOBER 23.1909
And by That Time  We'll
Not Worry About the
C. N. P.'s Output.
Ur. Elias Rogers, President of iho
Crows' Xest Coal Company, was in
Victoria on the 21st inst., _ to discuss
eoal mining matters with the government. He was accompanied by Mr.
J. D. Hurd, general manager of the
Company, and Mr. \V. R.' Ross, M. P.P.
"On nothing does the future prosperity of . British Columbia' rest to
such an extent as the proper development of the immense coal areas which
lie within'iho confines of this province,' declared Mr. Rogers to the Victoria Coloonist. "Up to date the com;
panics *-yhich have been doing businoss in the interior have been operating
under difficulties which have not been
encountered in other .countries, with
Ihe possible exception of Wales. Tlie
amount of coal in British Columbia, according lo the best surveys, is sufficient' to last for one thousand year's,
but the difficulties to be met with in
some sections, makes it imperative
that, every cneoiiragemeiii should bo

THE  HUMAN  ELEMENT OF OUR
NATIONAL RESOURCES
A Yale Professor Would Prevent'
Waste of Vitality by Taking Greater
Care of'the  People.
(Industrial Index)
• The greatest waste in our country
and all over the world is not coal and
timber, but the life and energy of
citizens, says Professor Irving Fisher
of Yale College. It is a more important question, he asserts, that forest
conservation, the utilization of water
power or the redemption of the arid
lands. . ;
In his opinion it is a* matter of reproach that we, should lake more pains
in the welfare of livestock than in that
of human beings. He would have a
national health' bureau, * whose energies in part should be directed toward
providing bettor living for the people,
as a means of heading off. disease, and
in part redeeming us from present
physical  ills. ' «i
It.is more important thai the milk,
we drink should be pure, than the cow
from which it conies should have a
pedigree. It is just as vital that our
1*00(1 should be lree from injurious
ailiilt.eratioiis as that we should increase the area of cultivated land.
The regulation of women and child
labor, the enforcement of the use,of
safeguards in hazardous employment
and the improvement of tenement
house conditions are larger problems
than national expansion. ,
Tlio national'government, thu slates
and    llio  municipalilies,    he    claims,
opinent of the fields. Some of.the
mines are somewhat, gaseous and in
some sections subject to more or less
geological-disturbance, wiih the result should steadfastly devote their ener-
that as, experience has shown, the!'gies and resources to the* protection
mine operators have found what. of the people from disease. Such pro-
looks like a good workable area today,, lection is quite as properly a govorn-
is, by a fault, rendered useless. Then '■ mental  function  as  protection    from
foreign   invasion,   from 'criminals   or
from fire.
It is both bad policy and bad'economy' to leave this work mainly to the
weak and spasmodic efforts of charily, or to the philanthropy of physicians.
Through a systematic and constant
means of presenting facts to the people, everything pertaining to' their
health should be made a matter of
common knowledge. .lust ..as now
the department of agriculture supplies
specific information to the farmer in
respect to raising crops and livestock,
so-should a* department devoted to
health be able to provide every health
officer, school teacher, physician, cm*
of an up t.o'date steel tipple at Michel P'loyer and private family and individ-
and the installation of an air com-' ual with knowledge by which the dan-
pressor plant, together with other im-', ser signal could be promptly ■ raised

The Crows Xest Pass Coal Co. is
expending money at the rate of two
million dollars annually in' wages;
aiid has spent in cash since operation
first began on capital account over
five million dollars. These figures indicate, what an important place an industry of that magnitude occupies in
the development - of the resources of
British Columbia. Just as soon as trade
conditions warrant it, extensive additions to the company's plant will be
made.' In the past year nearly 300,000
dollars has been spent in the erection

AN IMMENSE DEAL
IS REPORTED
Immense Coal Areas in B*rC.  Figure
.   in Transaction—MilKoiis
Involved
CALGARY, Alta. Oct. 21—Within
the past few clays a deal has been put
through here by which a company of
German capitalists'-has secured possession  of  the  Kanaskls  coal   fields
near "Banff, and tho Brazeau coal field
**.
in   the  neighborhood'   'of  Yollowhead
Pass. -       y
The price paid has, -.lot. been definitely stated but it is said to be in ihe
neighborhood of 510,000,000.
The supply of seam .coal in both
fields is regarded as practically inexhaustible and it is believed they will
form the chief source of supply for
the Grand Trunk Pacific as well as
a partial supply for the Canadian Xoi*-
Thern', '
The Canadian Northern is understood to be heavily interested with
the Gorman financial men in the new
venture ui;'■- one of the first moves
on tin? part of Mackenzie and Maun
interests will be to construct a railroad
fifteen miles In length from the Kan-
askis fields to the main line of the
C. P. R., so ns to "supply to that road
coal whicli has now "to be . brought
from the Crow's Nest Tegioii.

, Pushing tiie girl aside I strode toward the..door and opened It. • There
was'nobody. At least 1 saw no one,
for it was pilch dark; but I heard a
creaking, which seemed to come from
the stairs, So like a fool I advanced
a step or two—and walked into the
trap laid for me.
In an instant I was seized by several
strong arms and in such a perfect man
ner—due to years of practice I suppose—that I had not even the chance
of a struggle.
A gag was clapped to my mouth and
my, revolver,wrenched froni_ my hand
and my arms pinioned, my ankles
shackled, and all with such lightning
like rapidity that within ten seconds
I was lying on tlie ground bound both
hand and foot and as helpless as a
mummy, '
As* for Juana, who had come running to the door, I could hear, though
I could* not see, thai, her manner toward me had changed completely.
"Pope, is that you?" .she asked anxiously.
t A man beside me. growled assent. I
expected an angry scene of jealousy,
biit,evidently the fellow was reserving
that for'a better occasion when he
should find her alone.
"Have you got him?" she continu-.

be accused of murder."
"He won't be killed," chuckled Pepo.
"He'll kill himself, by walking over the
'Gai'ganla" (a precipice in the neigh-,
borhood.)
Drops of perspiration stood out on
my forehead as I realized tlie fate
that these cruel ruffians had In store
for me. ' <\
'"That's safer," agreed tho girl. "But
you'd better keep him until father has
returned, lie would also H!ro to s:c- thc
fun."
The wretched creature! So she
had been playing with me as well!
"It's too risky," said another.
"Oh, is that, you, Juana?" cried the
girl. ■ "Fathcr'U bo glad to know that
you sneaked into his house at,night,
with Popo. ■ ' Out ho will bo angry if
you do not lot lilm lake a part in the
despatching of thla miserable spy,"
"Ilut you needn't loll him anything
about It; and wo-shan't toll him that
you had fallen lu lovo with tho follow,"
sneered Pope. 7
•'Hold your Iohriio!" growled a no I lier Individual.
"Ih that you, Pneo?" said .luiiiia,
"Well yon all know my father. Cheat
lilm of tho fun his (laughtor hail in
Hloru for lilm and you'll boo what will
happen. Some of you won't bo feeling
happy soon."
In tho meant lnw I had been ruthlessly ailing on tho Hhoiildors of I wo
niuii ami a borne blanket wuh thrown
ovor mn and I was homo down tho
Htnlrn followed by othei'8 and Juana.
Wo croHHod the general room .and

of which niputloii had heen mado nt
lho prlnHt'M Ihal very afternoon, Would
thoy mnko away with nt-™ al oiire or
would Dwy delay my execution unlil

My r-pceillations were r.oon m-i nt
mat. HnltliiK nt tho CnBtlllo, lho men
ent tied one of lliu colls of the old niln
and tht.w* mo noiu. ton gently on nomc
bundle* nf utrnw In tlio rorner. Then
llioy tiegnn diHcunglng whether they
should despatch mo to (lie other world
immediately or wait until the return of
Juan's father should return. The last
words of the girl had evidently had the
desired, effect',, not that* it mattered
much to me for the ultimate end would
be the'same in, both cases—but "a man
likes'to hang'on to life if even by a
thread as long as possible.* Pope showed himself very obstinate wishing to
get me out of the,way as soon as possible. At last after mueh debating it
was decided to make mo'walk over the
precipice at noon on"ilie following day
.whether Juaiia's father.'had returned
or not.
The gag was now taken, out of millionth and I was warned that if I were
to make as much as a sound I should
bo instantly knifed. In vain I tried to
persuade them iliat. I was no police
spy and that they had been deceived
by Pope who was jealous because I
had chatted with Juana. But they
would not believe me.
"Shut up and don't whine," said one
bf them, "Take your fate as a man.
Whon you catch one of us we don't
plead for our lire?"
i-
"But I'm not a spy.'    ■    '■'      "
"Pepe knows you are."      " • ',
"He's a liar and ho knows il well,
too."
-* At' iho words Pepe made a furious
lunge'at me* with his knife, but was
stopped by Paco who said surlily:—
"Enough of that. We're not in the
habit of killing folk in cold blood'.
Pepe. Let tho* fellow have his say
until tomorrow; you can have yours
for weeks after."
With a curse Pepe retreated. As for
me, I saw it was absolutely useless to
continue defying them ftr prove I was
other than what I said I was, and so
I lay sullenly awaiting the hour*.of my
doom.
Shortly before dawn my captors decided to continue their march to a'cave
situated near the precipice,, and accordingly I was again hoisted on the
shoulders of- two men, having been
previously gagged. Strange tcsay
the thongs ancl ropes, with,,which I was
bound ancl which were eating the.ir
way into my swollen flesh caused.me
no pain;, at the'time. I was, however perspiring freely at ttie thought
—ever present in my mind—of ' my
approaching fate, and the. terrible,
mental agonies I was suffering seemed
to deaden my nerves to any sense of
pliysclenl pain.
It was already daylight when wo
reached tlie cave, where I was unceremoniously1 thrown down on the sand.
As far as 1 could make out the hollow
was either the mouth of an abandoned
mine or a cavo or. natural grotto. Tho
farther end was burled in thc deepest
gloom and tho cave seemed to extend
indefinitely into Ihe interior of tho
mountain.
Of the ruffians who wore going to
make me walk tho plank within six
hours all but Pepo and Pacd—the latter probably remaining because ho did
not trust his companion—-wenl off to
the village to gel food and drink nnd
to reconiiolt.ro as to whoro Dw gon-
darmoH wore prowling on that day,
My two custodians sat Brooking nnd
yawning until tho sun rose and then
went outside to stretch tliolr llm Ik; and
gel. n breath of rrosh air. Thoy did
not so mueh as throw a glance in the
direction of whore I lay bound, gagged
nnd helpless iih a babe,
O'h, tho torture of I Iioho long Iioiii'h!
—or were they only minuted, The stupid things that crossed the mind for

Finally nho UiniM a iciolwr into
my hand,
"Kill IVpo!" hIu' IiIhsciI Into my f-nr;
"tint Paco for ht< U a good man."
Her Idonn of tr.ttnd nnd !u4 may haw
liotnn primitive, Imi I wnn nnt tlwre in
argue that point with lur.     It w<-u
cleairly to me my duty to get her away
as well as niyself whether I had to
shoot down one man or two.
I motioned her to get back'into the
farther end of the cave—a suggestion
however, that-.she flatly refused to
carry out." Then I lay still for a moment or, two', enjoying the feeling of
returning strength.
Slowly I got on to my hands and
knees and crawled towards the opening. I had not made up my mind as
to how I was going to act when Fate,
which plays such an important part in
the lives and doings of men and women, came to my help. For Paco. got
up and walked slowly away.
."I'll just -io and see whether tliey
are coming," he remarked io his companion. ' -' ..,.,'
o
•■ Pepe grunted.
"Perhaps you'll not find him alive
when,you come back, yon idiot," ho
muttered to himself and a murderous
smile crossed over his evil face. ■ • •
Evidently he was waiting for Paco
io get some distance away; then he
meant, to come in and give mo a knife
thrust, lt was tim-8 to act. ' So I advanced-, cautiously,-' my eyes fixed on
the ruffian who sat a few yards from
Hie' mouth of the cave. I could not
havo been more than a foot from the
opening when I  paused.
"Shoot him!"., whispered Juana in
a hoarse voice behind me and it. then
flashed across me how much she hated
the man.
Just then Pepe, turned and saw me.
He shouted a terrible-oath and his
hand flew to his pocket for his revolver. We were so close to each other that it was a matter of first shot.
We could hardly have missed al that
range. All I remember is that ther.e
was a sharp report and I saw my intending murderer fall.   „
"Run!".said Juana as we both hur-
vit'.d out into "the blvding sunlight,
"into the bush." ,;
We had no time to lose for we could
hear Paco coming back lo the cave.
He walked sharply and there was a
dangerous look on his face, as we
could see.from behind the shrub'from
where we * were standing.
"lie. thinks you have bee"i killed ...
he would have run," said Juana. With
that she crawled swiftly away and I
followed her.
I paused again.for a moment to look
behind me and saw, Paco come up to
the cave, start at the sight of his dead
companion, and then looking around
lie espied me. " Again there was a
report and I felt a stinging sensation
in my left arm. I was just going to
shoot when— '   .'■>

- The man lowered his weapon, with
amazement written on his face.
"You?"
"Yes. Pepe was a liar. This man is
no spy."
"That's what' you say."
"Well if lie had been a spy would
Pepe have been so eager to kill him
in cold blood and risk tlie gallows for
his hastiness? He was simply jealous of him because I spoke to him,
That's all. And a nice lot of fools ho
made of you fellows!"
Paco stared ai  her.
"And what, are you going to do now?'
she asked after a pause,
'"'If it's as you say a love quarrel,
I'm with you and so are all the boys,"
replied Paco. "I had my suspicions
nil along,"
"I know you did." ,
"lint, by heaven," he went, on "if that
man woro to breathe a word to tho

"He Ih no spy I tell you," said lho

In view of the numerous cures which
Zam-Buk has worked when all else has
failed, there is little wonder that in
the end the doctor attending Mrs. J.'
P. St. Denis,, of 305 Thompson street,
Winnipeg, should tell'her there was
nothing but Zain-Buk could cure her.
The result* showed the far seeing wis
dom of this practitioner, and having
been completely cured by Zam-Buk
Mrs. St. Deiiis gievs'her experience for
the benefit ofothcr sufferers.
She says:' "Eczema started on ojie
side of my face and' nose. At first
my nose felt sore, similar to -what
one feels with a bad cold, °I '.paid no
attention to this thinking that it would
pass away in a day or so, but to my
surprise it got worse. The nose then j
became swollen and hard and turned \
a purplish red,' as well as'part of tlie
cheek on that side of my face.
"As Ihe disease developed pinipk-s
and ulcers broke out/then the skin
cracked in places and peeled off in
flakes leaving my faco and nose raw
and sore. This condition reacted on
my general health and I became very
111. I could get no sleep at. night because ot' the ii-rilation.and the pain,
and my.face was in such a shocking
condition that'for two months I did
not,,,go out of the house. I applied
remedies which were supposed to be
good for skin diseases but in vain.
"My doctor' also treated me, but
without effect, until one day1 he said
that the only tiling whicli would now
be likely lo cure me was Zam-Buk,
"Acting on his advice I procured a
supply and found that even the first
few applications had a.soothing effect
on tlie sores. 1' loft off everything
else in favor of this balm and applied
it liberally every day to affected parts.
In a remarkably short time, considering.the obstinate nature of my disease
we saw traces of improvement, whicli
encouraged us to persevere with the
Zam-Buk' treatment. Zam-Buk reduced the discoloraton, then the hard
swellng .began'to'show traces of leaving, the'sores*seemed .less angry and
in about three weeks time most of
tlie sores were healing nicely. To cut
a long story"short I continued wim
the Zanj-Buk treatment until my face
was cleared completely of. all traces
of the troublesome and painful ecze
ma."
'. Such was the experience of Mrs. SI
Denis, and scores,of other sufferers
could tell of other experience. Zam-
Buk is nature's own healer, being composed of pure herbal healing essences,
-ana—i.ree—from-all-traces-of-ifaTnTfu'r
animal fat or mineral poison. • It is a
safe cure for cuts, laceratons,- burns
eczema, ringworm, poisoned wound,
festering sores, bad Jog, and all skin
injuries, and diseases. Zam-Buk, is
also a cure for piles. Druggists and
stores everywhere sell at 50c. a box,
or post, free from the Zam-Buk Co.,
Toronto, on receipt of price. You
are warned against cheap and harmful
imitations sometimes represented as
"just as good,"

The ages to which some of these
pensioners live is astonishing. Men
who retired on tlio ground of ill-health
or old age back in the fifties still
draw their annual stipend. There is
one man named W. Learmonlh, who
nnnears to have inherited a pension
whicli began six years before he was
horn. Pie was Lord Chancellor's
messenger in the Supreme Court of
Judicature,' and Hie entries against
his namo are: "Retired at twenty-
seven; causo, abolition of fees; pension commenced on Jan. , 11, 1S32,
succeeded to compensation May C,
1°«5." This individual .also draws
£47 12s., ns a "commutation annuity," and since 1879 another £24
JX as a-"commutation annuity" from
tt-*-1' National Debt Commissioners.
Then there is a Mr. F. R. Brande,
whose office as moneyers' apprentice
in the Royal Mint was abolished in
1351, when -he was twenty-two. He
lias drawn £150 a year compensation
allowance since then, or £8,550 in all.
Biit'as well as this, Mr. Brande put in
forty-four years' service as a clerk
in ihe Mint and retired in ,1891 at
the aige of Gl, with a pension of £311
2s. 2d, a year, his salarv having been'
£466 13s. 4d.
There was another nineteen-year-
old moneyers' apprentice named H.
Finch "when the: office was abolished
in 1861.    He, too, draws £150 a year.
W. M. Carpendale, a clerk in the
National Debt office, retired in 1354,
at the age of 28, on the' ground cf
"ill-health." He still draws a pension
of £32 a year.
*■ A' curious pension granted in the
same year is that under the heading
of "Slave trade services" to a storekeeper at St. Helena, who still draws
£43 a year because his office was
abolished.
Since 1862 Henry Mills. * formerly
lower turnkey ,at the old Queen's
Prison, has drawn £4 9s. 9d. because
his office was .abolished.
In the report there are numerous
instances ol men who retired thirty
nod forty years ago on the ground ot
"ilWfelttrttiinJFffwing^LiTeir-pensi'onsr
An instructor in mat-making at
Pentonville Prison has drawn "£22
18s. lid. a year since 186G. An inspector of fisheries has drawn £367 a
year since ,1867.
Thc great majority of the prison
pensioners seem fn have retired because of bad health, and there are
hundreds of cases given in thc blue
book.
Whon the tolls on Chelsea bridge
were done away with in 1879, J. J.
Browning, the collector, was given a
pension of £17 Is. 2d., which ho still
draws.
A very large pension that has beon
paid for many vears is that to Sir
T, G.-Fardoll, M.P. for North Pad-
dington, whose office an registrar in
the Bankruptcy Court was abolished
in 1872, when he wns 38 years old.
Ho hold office for four years at a
salary of £1,000. His compensation
nllowanco hns been £666 13s. 4d. a
voar for iho last thirty-six years, or
£24,000 in all.
Anothor active pensioner is Sir
Coiirtcnay Tlbe.rt, tlie clerk of tho

Old Fashioned Dinner Bell Revived—A Dish Rack.
USEFUL WHEN SERVING CHOPS
A New Gridiron Promises to Revolutionize the Art of Broiling Steaks.
It Is Easy to Clean and- Can Be
Taken Apart if Desired.
That all softening.
Overpowering knell,
' Tho tocsin of the sou! —   -
Thc dinner bell.    .
Ot mission oak and brass is the, dinner bell seen in Hie illustration. ■ Fashioned like the old "town bells" used
in the villages during colonial days and
by English and French peasants to
tall town meetings, it is odd and attractive.
The lone of the brass bell Is deep
and rich.* The slightest pull on the
leather thong suspended from li will
make it ring long enough to call any
ordinary hungry mortal to dinner,
In a mission furnished hall this
would add a qualm and artistic touch.
Another new household invention la
tho chop rack. How often has the
polish on a iliniiiL: table been ruined
by an unsightly mark made by tho
contact of a hot dish!
Some servants are so careless they
never seem to learn'that'hot dishes
will mark a table unless a thick mat
is placed tinder tbem. Now the shops
show a dish, rack mado especially for
a fbop dish, biit which can be.used for
