Jeremiah Tried uud Ac.juittt.il
Jeremiah stopped ibo congregation
on ils way to church and preached
such a sermon ns it would never have

ol ono speaking tlio very words of
Hod ho laced kings and princes, prieal
und people. Ho sot up a mourner's
bench and called a nation tn up nl.

oico oi bridegroom and bride, sound
ol mill dom. and light ol candle, all
would cease in the whirlwind ol divine

would bo like Iho disgraced tabernacle ol Shi lob nnd Ibo boly city so
entirely desolate tbut il. would nol
havo a single inhabitant, on astonishment, hissing nnd curse, The answer
ol tbo privileged cluss to tbis scathing sermon was natural enough. Thoy
saw their honors and emoluments
moiling away in Ibo beat ol a genu

prophet's calmness arid sell-possession

spoken God's words I"* It was said
ill such a way as to compel belief. A

It waa hall past twelve pn tilt
twenty-third of May'
The tall young mai) v/ltli the long
dark cost, a coat that otivoloped bin)
completely, reached the corner at tha
same instant that the electric lights
want out. They went out for ilio
same reason that lights go out op all

• Tbo man stood there lor an Ionian)
looking up and down the street.
He may have been waiting (or .1
ur. II be waa, be waa disappointed
In the distance tba faint light of
an electric gleamed through the moisture It waa receding, of course, as
Is the habit of alreet conveyances.
Tbe young pan breathed a sign
"A beastly night," be exclaimed all
lo himself In a pleasant, well-modulated voice.
It dldnt seep lo worry I1I111. He
said It wilh (be same easy nonchalance as though it were tho finest of
"So much Ibe better," he continued
In tbe same happy frame of mind.
Nevertheless be drew bis coat the
closer about him and turned up tho
collar. Then, removing his opera hat,
he shook the rain from It and replaced It upon hln head.
But although the Btorm continued
with unabated force, he did not sock
shelter, but Bill! stood upon the corner, glancing repeatedly up and down
the cross streets, peering ln(o the
darkness to see what he could see,
nnd thrusting bis heed forward and
lo one aide, to hear what ho could
He elood thus for some four or live
minutes—a long while to eland and
look and Helen. And be saw nothing
end heard nothing.
Finally be thrust his hand into tbe
deplbs of bis long coal, snd from the
'nslde half pulled out a watch.
He did not look at It for two roa-
loi.ii, lirst because the rain vould
live ruined II; second, because ii
was too dark to see it. Instead, be
presBod a small spring. It was ,1 re-
r cater, and II struck the hour.
"Quarter lo one," he remarked
rofily In himself: "I'm Just in time."
That's a good watch," be contln-
1 ed, 'ono of the best, I'll wager, In
tho old man's slock, and a flrst-class
stock be carries, too—or did, up to
night before Iimt."
He laughed noiselessly to himself,
nnd then, with an upward glance nt
the corner building, lie moved over
towards II, aa though seeking shelter
from tho storm.
It wim a bank—one of tbe old-fashioned kind, wilh a high corner sloop
covered by Ibe conventional species
i.f portico.
Another man would havo ascended
Ibis stoop and taken his stand under
Ihe portler, whicii furnished ample
protection from the wet. But nol bo
thie man.
Instead, with unheard footsteps, he
moved half way down the length of
the bank on Ihe sldo street end paused In front of s ground-floor window.
There were sli windows on Ibst
elds. He selected the third one, after
ciaminlng it with csre.
As was the cobo with all the others,
this window was barred with Iron
bars. Tbey bIbo were old-fashioned,
somowbal wide apart, and ran .'rom
top to bottom with no supporting
piste between.
Having completed his Investigation,
the man in the long coat straightened up and stood wilh his back lo the
window, and coco moro looked about
It wu a bad place lo stand. Tbe
watar from the roof poured down In
a aleady atream upon bis bead.
' He never heeded II, however. After
looking end listening for another Instant, he merely wrapped a long scarf
about bis neck and drew bie coat still
more closely around bim, and then
again stooped down and—what!
No one knowsl Turned up his trousers, perhaps.
If It were that, It took Borne time,
tind required considerable care.
Again be straightened up and again
stod still. Not entirely, though, for
bs kept one beel tap-tap-tapping upon
lha lag beneath.
And aa ha tapped a reaping, grating sound becape perceptible, alight,
but still distinct It cane from behind hip. .
Once more he jpoke.
"Oreat Scott,'1 he exclaimed, "what
a, boon these new automobile heel
machines have con* to be. The man
(bat makes thep deserves a placo
along With |h« Ipventor of the typewriter a»4 tha sawing machine and

to wr|t« ths (allow a testimonial and
have It publlshed-over py signature
and under py portrait. I will, too, If
ever I—If tha warst comes to the
worst. I've got Ihe nerve to do It."
Qllt he kept on tapping. Suddenly
there waa a sharp whirring sound
and than a loud snap.
"Number one!" ho exclaimed.
Again he stooped and mado another
adjustment.   Having  done   this,   he
once more examined tbe window and
the bare
As he did so a small gleap of light
played around tbe bottom of one of
the long bars. It came from a tiny
incandescent lamp held In the hollow
ot hia palp.
This nsw Inspection seemed highly
satisfactory. Again be resumed . his
After a time there was aWher
whir and another enap.
"Number two," he remarked  In 11
lone of delight.
Then he sprang aside.
"Oreat Scotl" ba continued, "what's
For be had Indistinctly heard upon
the heavy moist air the steady tramp,
tramp of a man around the corner.
Tin' man In the long coat hastily
took from his pocket a small piece of
putty, Ailed the Hied crevices with
it, then with a diminutive peper
Bhaker dusted the edges with lino lead
pencil Bcrapings—thls lo rcsloro
them a metallic appearance.
Then he blew away Ihe iron tilings
inul noiselessly disapeared.
The watchman—for It was became around (lie corner, tried the
front door, then flushed bia light In
turn into and upon each window.
All was well. He stood for a moment, glancing up and down, swore

August 4 1911
When the Dominion House of Com
mons re-assembled in duly, it wss
fully sipeoted by the country at large
that ths then parliament would not
survive Ihe ssssion, but notwithstanding this lacl the siiilil.iin.BH with
which dissolution wss reached came aa
a surprise to all those who were
closely following events, and who considered themselves In position to
gauge the probabilities with a (air degree ol apouraey,
The statements ol the members ol
the oppoaition during Ihe recees were
positive and unambiguous, lo the effect that they were determined lhat
Ihe propoaed reciprocity agreement
between Canada and the I'nited
States should be pronounced upon by
the Canadian people at ths polls.
During the lew sessions through which
the House survived, the gov.rnment
Inrcee employed the customary methods ol thoroughly testing tha temper
ol the opposition with the result that
(here was not any sign ol a weakening ol their determination or ol any
break in the ranks.
It was hoped in many iroartars
that the government might find it
feasible to accept, in some form, ona
nl the propositions offered by Ilie
opposition in order to bring in a redistribution bill before laying tbe reciprocity issue belore Ihe people. At
any rate it, wus generally etpeeted
that some proposition wilh respect lo
supply would lie made and accepted,
before Ihe House was dissolved. The
prophets, however, were all astray
and the effect was somewhat like
Ihe proverbial "bolt Irom the blue"
when the announcement wns made,
during the absence ol many members,
who, according to tbs invariable custom had taken a run home lor the
week end, lhat Ihe ilium,, had lieen
While the,genera) record of Ibe government will doubtless figure to a
greater or leaser eitent in the ap-
proaching campaign, yet Ilie elections
will lie fought in Hie main upon the
reciprocity issue and it is sale lo say
that Ihe results will lie controlled by
that issue.
This appeal lo the people will lank
as ons ol the moat notable tbut has
been recorded in Canadian histoly lo
date lor several reasons, first because
ol the circumstances under whicii il
was precipitated in lha middle ol the
usual parliamentary term ; secondly,
because ol tha importance ol tbe ijsus-
tioo which haa caused lha appeal hi.iI
third because ol Ihe (act tbut Ihe
lines upon which the electorate will
divide are so laid as to break down
the old party lines to a great eitent.
While in Ihe main it may lie said
that the Conservative parly ia nppoe-
ed to the reciprocity agreement and
that the Liberal party is in lavor of
the pact, yet the special grounds upon
which the proposed agreement may appear desirable or undesirable to Ibe
individual voter an ol such a nature
that many followers ol both parties
will break away Irom those aAliation*
for Ihe tiase fating at any rate in cast
lag their ballot on September 21st.
This leatura oi lbs situation will be
round particularly gratifying by those
who as* of opinion tint while there
