Foregoing initial order was
issued by tlic volunteer fire brigade. The people hereabouts responded in goodly numbers, though
tiie night was wet. I'he smoking
concert, which was held in Larson's pavilion, was a most unique
c.ie. There was plenty of inn anil

but then, that was what he Was
tin ie lor, and certainly he was
equal to the occassion.
Chairman Kealy in opening
spoke briefly. He said that the
purpose of the entertainment was
to raise Iiiuds, so that the hoys of
the lire brigade could have a gymnasium where they could indulge
in manly exercise. '01 course,"
he went on, "none o! us know how
long it will ho before we have a
paid fire brigade, but we must
show our thanks to those who have
volunteered to risk in either a
large or small blare, perhaps loss
ol life or limb." (Applause.)

a charge of selling "spavined"
apples, he was then sworu on a

fruit did not agree with him.
Judge Kealy—It wai forbidden

Ex-Reeve J. C Keith was then
charged with being a "darned
good fellow."    He stayed out late
D, G. Dick was brought up, to
the astonishment and amusement
ol all, to answer the charge of
"breach of promise.'' Unlit. Dick,
his son, was witness. What chanci
was there for the old man ? But
thin the good, kind, lenient judge
let him off easy.

lushed before the beak, charged
with pelting money for ads, never

Well, I get the ads. and if people
haven't brains to read them it's
not my fault." J. C. Keith, a
witness, said: "I paid Si (or The
Express and considered it a good
investment.,' Nevertheless the fine
iiad to be paid.
C. P. Shute-Piers "had his hand
on fifty cents." The court grabbed
it, with a caution to Piers.
J. C. Williams was up for vagrancy. Special Constable Gibson
knew Williams never worked, but
didn't associate with him. The
defence told the court that the
prisoner was uo booker. Larson
said the accused was too mean to
frequent his hotel. (Laughter.')
Chief Constable Dick, who thinks
lie is the whole cheese, warned
Williams to leave town.
Mr Gibson was charged with
horse stealing. Tnis was considered a "capital" offense by the
court. Mr. Larson went on to
lay that Gibson wanted to trade
heavvy horses with him in the dark
at J a. in. They were fed poor
oats, had the heaves and were
lame. Larson said he was smarter
than Gibson though.
Tom Clark, the recorder, was
fined >i and costs for having his
hat on in court.
Rev, |, li. Giilain seemed very
much interested in the "horse
case, he was charged by "Judge"
K.ialv, with sheep stealing. His
honor said the accused could not
pull the wool over his eyes as he
knew the tlock.
W. B. Ross, who just dotes on
judges, magistrates, stipendary
and otherwise, justices ol the
peace, court clerks, constables,
policemen etc., etc., and novel
saying a word, was seen to move
by this remarkable judge, who
lined him for being alive.
Walter Green, Ru.-scll Clark,
Roy Wheeler, and the watchman
at the Moodyville mill, as well as
several others who also could not
give eXCUSftS for living, were penalized.
The awkward squad ol thirteen
was charged with being a gang of
hoboes. All pleaded guilty in one
voice pitched in a lii-di key.
Chid Constable Dick answered
to a charge of being drunk and
disorderly, Mr. Larson—"You
bet he drinks once and awhile." It
was no use, the accused had to
whack up bis fine.
Mr. Stacey charged Mr. Arthur,
the lawyer for the defence, who
acted all through the court pro
ceedings, but never won a single
ease, with unprolessionalism in
presenting his defences. He was
promptly  .sat  on  again   by  the
Mr. Arthur mads a similar charge
against Mr. Stacey, who was likewise dealt with.
J. C. Keith was very pleased to
see such "bum" lawyers so summarily dealt with. It was indeed
a pleasant thing to be brought together this wise.    Now  the  great
question was, how to help ihe
volunteer fire brigade from now on.
Mr. Larson rose and stated he
had a i liarge to make against the
Reeve of tho municipality for
allowing holes ill the street, This
being BI it were a bolt from the
blue as the integrity and impartiality of the judge up to now had
not been questioned. I'r isi uting

TheV.,V.ctE. Railway Will
Be Rushed through to
the Coast.—The Northern Extension of the
V., W. & Y Railway Is
an Admirable One—Did
Not Acquire Waterfront.
Last Friday, after wc had gone
to press, President James J. Hill,
of the si. N. R. and party arrived
at Vancouver. The railway magnate, accompanied by President
John Hendry of the V., W. & Y.,
inspected the waterfront of Burrard inlet in the east end of the
city. Returning, Mr. Hill entered
the local railway office at the
station, where he was closeted
with Mr. Hendry, and Mr. James
Jeffery, the secretary of the V.,
W. & V., for a busy tun minutes
examining plans ol False   creek
and Burrard inlet.
Mr. Hill made the following
statement, as published in the
Province ;
"The work of construction of
the western section ol the Vancouver, Victoria i; Eastern Railway
will be started this winter and will
be rushed witli all possible dispatch. All the preparations arc
now under way. A start will be
made at Cloverdale, where the new-
road will join the Westminster
Southern Railway, now a part of
the Great Northern system, and
the contractors, dividing the work
into large sections, will work cast
over the Hope mountains to connect with the other section of the
Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern,
now being built from the Boundary
into the Simiikameen district. It
will be an all-Canadian line, with
terminals at Vancouver. Mark
my words: We will do more to
upbuild Vancouver than any railway corporation has done yet."
"The northern extension of the
V., W. ii V?" said Mr. Hill, repeating the interviewer's question.
"Well, you know that project is
in the hands of Mr. Hendry who
can give you all the information,
it is an admirable project, but my
connection with it is an indirect

the same, and ol course enforced
the full penalty of the law.
This concluded one of ihe most
enjoyable entertainments ever held
in the mnnicnpality. Chairnan
Kealv, after some well chusjn remarks, wished th:: boys every
success and hoped that it would
not be long Imlore they got up
another "smoker"
The gathering then sang "For
H.'s n Jolly Hood Follow," "Auld
Lang bint" and "God Save the
King." -
Although our school is not as
large us at on time previous to the
summer vacation, yet it is interesting to note that it is steadily growing. It is to be hoped that this
month will bring the average up to
what is required. The Education
Department has broken its own
rule, that a school must have a
month1)' average of 50, and given
an assistant on the strength that
the average would shortly reach
the 50 mark; but unless it does
soon the department threatens lo
remove the second teacher. The
average attendance for the month
of September is almost 44, being
an increase on the previous month
of over 4. There is now a regular
attendance ol 51 pupils, some ol
which have been added lately.
In the First division those who
were always regular and punctual
during Septei bar were: Alfred
Shaw, Rachael M '"'banc, Lizzie
Leek, Nellie Philips and Robert
In the Fourth class Nellie Mc-
Clure holds first rank in proficiency,
while to Edna McShane is due that
of second.
In the Third class, Rachael McShane claims first in proficiency,
and Nellie Philips second.
For good behaviour both in and
out of school, Ruby Lill, Glen
McMillan, Lizzie Leek and Nellie
McClure deserve first place.
In the Second division, those
always punctual and regular were;
Clara Fogg, Walter Gibson, Fred
LaPenOtiere, Alma Martin, Amy

The World Points Out That
tlie Next Railroad Must
Uo Across the Inlet to
North Vancouver—Revelation Is Interesting
and Startling to Everyone.
The Vancouver World commenting on the evidence laid before the
Royal Commission on transportation on Friday, proved one thing
conclusively and that is that if a
national harbor board is to be
established for Vancouver for the
purpose of furnishing docks under
national control it will have to
acquire the necessary waterfront
rights from some one else other
than the city of Vancouver, for
the simple reason lhat the city has
not now, nor ever had, any waterfront property of value of any kind.
The citi.iens mav have been
under the impression that they had
some foreshore rights that were
1 worthy of the name but the evidence given before the comission
proves that the only places where
docks might be established within
reasonable roach ol the city proper
which are not already in the hands

In view of the lact that Vancouver hopes in the future to become
the terminus of three or four other
railways, this revelation is interest
ing, il not startling.
It leaves room (or only one or

to intend to do, or it must go up

Sir,—In your last issue you invite your readers to offer suggestions of a name more suitable
than North Vancouver. Will you
permit me through your colunis to
••xpress my opinion. The advantage to be gained is not clear; on
the other hand the disadvantage
and detriment is very apparent.
Some years ago a move was put on
foot to change the name of Seattle,
Wash., to that of the Queen City.
Certain high horse riders considered it humiliating to have
their town named after an obscure
Indian. The cause was lost, because better judgetmen prevailed.
Should we not be proud ol claiming to be the northern part of the
largest city in B. C; the terminus
ol one of the greatest railroads in
the world; placing the name of
Vancouver before the eyes of
millions of people in the East; with
our enormous shipping to all parts
of the globe; spreading the name
and lame ot Vancouver beyond the
seas? Are we not already known
in the world's great metropolis as
North Vancouver? The very name
bungs those who wish to learn
about our coming city to immediately recognise our position, and
instils in them a deep conception
of our commercial advantages. I
consider from an advertising point
ot view alone that the move is detrimental. Let us join hands with
ourbig sister cityacross the iulet and
march triumphantly forward in
name and fame,

Reeve Kealy Succinctly Presented the Views of the

Use of tho Waterfront
Rehire the Transportation Com mission—The
Proposed   New Bridge.
On Friday last before the Royal
Commission on transportation
Reeve Kealy presented the North
Vancouver idea in a resolution
prepared by tbe municipal council.
Briefly, the resolution proposed
that the Dominion government
should hold and improve a strip ol
waterfront 9400 feet in extent,
stretching below the North Vancouver town limits and including
the frontage of the Capilano re-
seive. This, the resolution claimed, could be so improved that
there could never be any shortage
of wharfage in Burrard inlet. The
chief clauses are;
The frontage controlled by
private owners is about 5,000 feet,
unalienated Hats, 9,400 feet; by
tbe Indian reserve, 1,800 feet.; by
the municiapality only  592  feet.
From Lynn creek tn the western
boundary of the Indian reserve,
deep water is available at from 100
to 600 feet from high water mark,

stated. In connection with this

We would point out that as the

necessary that shipping facilities

to provide this in connection with
North Vancouver by carrying out

earnestly ask your honorable body
to recommend the (ederal government to carry out.
The Indian reserve, before mentioned, as it stands, takes over

that if your honorable body will

will see that it will be a serious

The Saving of
Ronald Carr
"Good God:1 What a narrow
■shave !"
Tbe great gates of the Huxtable
level-crossing swung heavily across
the roadway, grazing the back of
the motor-car, as it shot through
.at forty miles an hour. Willi a
flash of its lamps, and the subdued
roar of whirring wheels, it vanished
down the dark road, leaving the
gateman aghast.
"A woman driving, too," bo ex-
Five miles further down the road
a young farmer driving home from
Molehill ,'iiarket pulled his startled
mare back upon hei haunches, and
swerved narrowly out of the way of
the car. When it was gone, he
stood up in his cart and yelled
curses after it, shaking bis whip in
impotent fury. Despite the glare
of its lights in his eyes, he too had
seen the girl in the ear—had seen
her tense, white face, ami had
moreover noted another figure by
her side, huddled into a shapeless
"What tin devil is the gill up
to ?" he asked himself aloud.
In the early winter evening Jhe
hoot of the horn .sounded weirdly
through quiet villages. Rural
policemen shouted unheeded challenges, aud strained eager eyes
alter the numbered tiil-b iard.
Lovers braving the cold for the
sake of sweet companionship drew
hurriedly into the bare hedgerows,
as ivitll menacing eyes ihe great
car darted upon them out of tin
darkness. Surly carters muttered
he ivy anathemas upon all autoim-
inles, and consigned their drivers
to lurid fate.
How thu girl's eyes ached as she
sir lined them towards the road
ahead ! II ir arm i were nnin'i with
h ti ling the steering wheel. But
with superb skill and dauntless
courage she held on her course.
Now, at some dangerous turning,
or in the street of some tiny hamlet, she momentarily cheeked tho
speed, her fingers moving unerringly amongst the levers which
coutrolled the powerful engine beneath her; then, again, she would
demand its utmost speed from the
car, and liy at breakneck pace between the hedges.
On, on through the night.
At intervals, subdued moans
came from the figure by her side.
Truly the danger was such as to
shake a bold heart. At that fearful speed the slightest mishap must
be fataL But the girl in the car
cared little for that—for some
higher and stronger emotion overcame the alarm she could not but
feel. Skilled in the art of driving,
she fully appreciated the risk to
herself and others involved in that
headlong Bight through the darkness, and she accepted it deliberately.
As for her fellow-traveller, she
(for the coweriug form was that of
a girl) sat shivering with dread.
This wild journey was none of her
seeking. No exaltation of spirit
overbore her terror. II any emotion but fear had a place in her
bosom, it was one of hatred for the
.masterful girl who had compelled
her to join in the car's mad career.
No word passed between the
All sense of time was lost in the
crowded minutes of that sensational
ride, Trees, hedgerows, houses,
flew past iu bewildering numbers,
and at awful speed.
At last the lights of a little town
appeared on the horizon. A smile
lit the set face of the girl who drove.
Ten minntes later she checked the
car, and they entered the ill-paved
streets of Rackstone. Deftly steering a devious way through the dim
and narrow alleys t lie girl made
with unfgltaring aim for the dark
gates of an ancient pile which
frowned upon the little High street
of Rackstone.
Lights Dashed from the windows.
She saw these  with   exultation.
As the car drew up, she took het
shrinking companion by tlie arm
AS she dismounted, and half leading, half dragging her, she entered
the building, brushing aside tho
constables who guarded the door
"Thank God, I'm in time," she
Ronald Carr was no coward, but
there was a pallor on his cheek
when he stepped into the dock at
Greenshire Assizes, "holden at
Rackstone," to stand his trial on a
charge of forgery.
He pulled himself together with
a perceptible   effort,  and   stood
calmly answering the challenge of
the clerk with a firm
" Not guilty."
The. horror of his position as a
gazing-stock for the idle or curious
spectator; the strain of weeks of
police-court investigation and suspense; the knowledge that the evidence was heavy against him; all
these bud told their tale upon him.
There had been moments when be
had been tempted to shirk this
terrible ordeal—to liy to ills be
knew not of, rather than bear it.
Now he glanced round the court
with a steady gaze. There was
the judge in his scarlet and ermine,
the counsel iu the.it silk or stuff
gowns and wigs, solicitors, ushers,
policemen and all th i paraphernalia
of the law. Only b.' an effort could
he realize that he wis the cause of
all this assembly—rt!) it lie held the
disgraceful prom! lence of the
felou's dock. Surely it was a hateful nightmare. II i knew he was
innocent, but What weight could
that knowledge hav^ agaiust damning testimony such as be knew
would be adduced.
He faltered when his eye rested
[on   one  fojm.    But the  eyes of
Mary Buitoii shot a message of
; trust and hope towards him, and
Ihe mentally thanked God and took
courage,    b'ur the moment all was
! unreal except the sweet face p! the
igirl who loved him, and believed
I iu him in spite ol all.   He knew
I that she cared not at all that her
own  lather was  the  prosecutor.
| lie knew that she no mere doubted
his innocence than he himself did.
It was a strange and bizarre position that  he occupied—indicted
lor felony at the instance of the
father of the girl he loved.    Mr.
Burton,  it  must  be  said,  knew
nothing of the tender relations between them.   Ronald had expressly
forbidden  Mary to make any attempt to use their love as a lever
for his escape.
" Come what may," he had said,
"I am determined to face the
charge out."
So Mary sat there, a silent witness of the ordeal imposed on her
lover, and full sharer in his agony
of mind,
* t *
It was late when the case was
called on.
Council for llie prosecution was
a young man who had yet to make
a name for himself. Iu an opening speecli of great length he put
his case to the jury. The story
was quite plain.
Thomas Burton, merchant ol
Martin, had a subsidiary banking
account at the County Bank, Rackstone. On sending lor his pass
book for comparison with his own
accounts, he louiid that what he
thought was a credit-balance ol
about /200 was really a debit of
,£50. Closer examination revealed tbe fact that a cheque had
been drawn ill favor ol Ronald
Can for ,C2S0' N°sucn payment
had ever been made by him.
Hurrying to the bank, he was
shown the cheque, apparently in
his own handwriting; "Fay Ronald Carr or order the sum of two
hundred and lilty pounds." And
endorsed thereon was the signature
ol Ronald Carr, unmistakably in
the writing of his confidential clerk.
That cheque was a lorgery.
Confronted with the position,
Carr had strenuously denied an/
knowledge of the document but
Thomas Burton had no hesitation
in handing him over to the police.
C011uc.il would tall the prosecutor, and tbe teller at the County
Hank who would ideulily the
prisoner,    lie would  further  call
handwriting experts who   would
show   that   signature   upon   the
cheque was a lorgery, and that the
endorsement was in the writing ol
the prisoner,
lie was at a loss to know what
defence could be put up against
such testimony.
So his witnesses were called and
gave their evidence clearly.
Cross-examination scarcely shook
them. It was based upon a theory
of mistaken identity. It would be
easy for a man who could forget
prosecutor's signature to forge that
of prisoner by way of diverting
suspicion. Under severe questioning, the bank teller admitted that
prisoner was rather taller than he
had taken the man to be who had
cashed the cheque. He had no
previous acquaintance with prisoner.
Re-examined, he had picked the
prisoner out of a dozen men in the
courtyard of Rackstone police-
Council for the defence had not
been instructed that there was in
existence a man who bore a striking resemblance to Ronald, For
this man Robert Standring, had
been for several years resident in
The handwriting experts were
emphatic, but Mr. Thompson, for
tbe defence, knew that he had
other experts to call, and hoped
that at least the judge would point
out to the jury that these neutra.
Used each other.
* * *
During the evidence for the
prosecution, Mary Burton had
been thinking closely.
At last a dim light seemed to
dawn upon her. Hurriedly she
scribbled a note to Robert's solicitor.
"Tell Mr. Thomson to drag out
his case as long as possible. I
think I can clear Ronald."
When next the prisoner looked
towards tbe place she had occupied
he saw to his dismay that she
had gone. It needed a strong
elfort to enable him to pull himself
together for the giving of his own
evidence, which was to follow the
opening speecli ot his counsel He
did his best to listen to Mr. Thorn
son's eloquence, but soon he became concious that he wished that
he would sit down, aud let the
wretched business be eaded.
And so the trial dragged on.
Ronald's council made a valient
effort to extend his case to its
utmost limits. He also was
anxiousfor victory, mainly because
to win in the face of such evidence
would be a triumph indeed, but
also because he was genuinely im
j pressed with belief Iu the innocence
iol his client. He worked the
theory of mistaken identity for all
it was worth, and made the best
that could be made of the scanty
evidence he was able to call.
Meantime Mary Burton had
l)own to the railway station, and
had just caught a train for Marlon
Wnat had caused her sudden
It was the memory of a voice in
the night.
Like a Hash its meaning had
come upon her.
Two nights before, she had been
sharing the room of her cousin
Isabel Burton, her father's ward,
who lived with them at Marlon
Grange. Isabel had seemed to be
afflicted with a lit ol nervous dc
prcssion, and she had asked Mary
to stay the night with her.
Through the night, Mary re
menibered, Isabel! had tossed
restlessly, snatching only now and
again a lew minutes' fitful sleep,
and preventing Mary fiom enjoy
ing more prolonged repose.
Hall waking and hall sleeping,
she had heard Isabell mutter:
"Bob, you must go back. Why
have you done it?"
Now, as she travelled to Mirlon,
she was busy piecing together a
theory, which, if it could be veri
fled, would clear her lover ol the
foul charge which lay against him.
By the time the train had reached
Marton she had formulated a plan
ol action.
She rushed Irom the station to
the grange, and found Isabel.
The latter was vainly trying to fix
her attention upon a novel, and
was plainly ill at case. She star
ted Irom her chair as Mary entered
the toon).
"Well, how has the trial gone?
"Belle, I've come to fetch you
to save Ronald."
"To letch me? What do you
1 scarcely know yet, but sonic
thing tells me you can do it, and
you must, you must!"
Belle sank into a chair trembling.
"But 1 pin do nothing."
"Yes, dear, you can. You re-
member the other night wlun I
si.iv il with yOU I   beard  ynu   talk
in your ileop, Ymi mentioned
Bob. (Th.' ail Ik r girl started. 1
Von told him to go be k. Ymi

What did it mean?   What did it
"Nothing, dear."
"Oh, but it must have done.
You were so much troubled about
it. Do you know what I think ?
I believe Bob's been over here.
And I believe he wrote that cheque."
Belle leaped to her feet.
"How do you know?" she exclaimed.
"Then I was right," cried Mary.
And you knew all the time that
Ronald was innocent, and would
have let him suffer! You shall
come with me at once and clear
"I will not," replied the other.
Somehow or other you have
guessed our secret, but I will never
say a word that will hurt Bob.
He's back in America now, where
you thought he was all the time.
Any besides, Uncle owed him the
money. Ho had treated him so
shabbily, and—and— "
The overstrung girl burst into
But her hysterics did not change
Mary's purpose.. If Belle could be
obstinate and even cruel in defence
of her sweetheart, Mary was pre
pared to venture much for the sake
of her own lover. Hastily fetching
a coat and hat, she commanded the
weeping girl to put them on.
"You must, you shall come with
me. I am stronger than you, and
I shall make you. And you must
come this very minute I"
Mary was rising to heroic heights,
Belle broke down under the
compelling force of the other's
enthusiasm in her lover's cause.
But, when she yielded, another
obstacle presented itself. Suddenly
Mary remembered that the last train
lor Rackstone had left.
"Let us wait until to-morrow,"
pleaded Belle.
"Never! We could save him
from prison to-morrow, but I mean
to save him Irom spending one
night in false imprisonment—from
having a sentence passed on him.
I shall drive lather's motor, and
you must come with me."
Every second was precious, il
the brave girl's design was to b<
can ied out.
Grasping the shrinking Belle,
who was terribly afraid of auto
cars, she ran down to the coach
house, now turned into a motor-
Luckily she was a skilled driver,
and besides that she knew the
mechanism of the car as well as a
professional chauffeur. It was the
work of a moment to satisfy herself
that the car was in running order,
Another minute saw her almost lift
Belle into the car, heap rugs upon
her, and mount to the driver's seat
A third saw tbe car dashing down
the street in the direction ol the
Rackstone road, and the adventur
ous journey began.
Happily it ended without mishap,
Mr, Thompson had striven his
utmost to prolong the proceedings,
He had even induced the judge to
adjourn for dinner. But time went
on. His opening speech, his examination and re-examination of his
witnesses had been stretched out
to the utmost limits. Yet he felt
he had made little headway with
the jury. He had, in point of (act,
no case. Now he was engaged
upon his closing speech, and was
exhausting all his powers ol eloquence. He could foresee the ease
with which the counsel for the
prosecution would demolish his
flimsy case,
It was with relief that he heard
the momentary confusion caused
by the entrance of the two girls.
By the permission of the judge,
a 1 0ui11l1.1t: m took place, and at
last he was able to put Isabel Burton into the witness-box.
Though she had been lor the
time overmastered by Mary's force
of will, when she entered thu court
Isabel was again determined to
shield her lover at all hazards.
But the solemnity ol the oath she
took, the shock ol seeing Ronald
Carr in the dock, and all the awe-
inspiring circumstances of the administration ol justice shook her
resolution. In spite ol her faults,
she was a girl ol good impulses,
and face to face with a tragedy of
injured innocence she felt herself
unable to play the part she had
hastily mapped out.
Her story, given reluctantly, told
how Bob Standring, her lover, and
her uncle's nephew on tho other
side, had lived so wild a life lhat
his uncle had packed him off to
America. How he had suddenly
come over to England known to
none but herself and bad in an evil
hout li elded to equalize accounts
between bis uncle and himsi ll by
means nl forgery. How lie had
taken advantage ol his uncle's account in the Rackstone branch ol
the County Bank, and had used
Ronald Carr as unconscious accomplice. The likeness between
the two men was a matter of note
among their friends. He had then
gone back to America. From Isabel he knew of Ronald's attachment
to Mary, and to do him justice he
had never thought that Mr. Burton
would prosecute his confidential
clerk when he knew of his daughter's affection (or him. Besides, he
bad intended to write and acknow-
edge the act if legal proceedings
were taken.
But Isabel had not meant that
her own lover should suffer even
justly, and only Mary's appeal and
high-handed actioti had caused her
to speak.
She produced a letter from Bob,
in which he virtually acknowledged
his wrongdoing.
CotinciU for the prosecution
withdrew from the case, and the
Judge directed the jury to find the
prisoner "Not Guilty."
His Lordship—in discharging
him, congratulated him on his
mistake, and on the pluck and
resource of the girl who had saved
After the first ecstasies of delight
at the happy outcome of the trial
to which they had been subjected,
there united lovers told each other
the story of their emotions during
the ordeal.
Mary explained to Ronald how
the light of  her  discovery  had
dawned upon her. She of course
knew her scapegrace cousin Bob
well, and had often seen the remarkable resemblance between
him and Ronald. As Mr. Thompson tried to establish his theory of
mistaken identity, and as the bank-
teller admitted disparity between
Ronald and the man who had
cashed the cheque, she had wondered if, by any chance Bob could
have been in England at the time
of the crime. But no. Surely he
was far away. Then Isabel's
words had occurred to her. How
could Bob "go back" if he had not
beeu here. Reasoning with daring
cogency on these lines she had determined to put her conclusions to
the test, and boldly to challenge
her cousin. With the happy
effect that has been recorded.
As partial reparation for his in-
advertant wrong to Carr, Mr.
Burton willingly gave his consent
to his marriage with his daughter
and later took him into partnership. The old man was much
incensed against Bob, but decided
not to take any further action in
the matter. Isabel very sooa
joined her iover in America,
where it is to be hoped they will
be happier than is suggested by
the duplicity of which they were
