Idea of burdening Mr. Hania with the

afford to do without sport, but na long
as wa are inqdu in the Image of God,
,we cannot afford to do without pity

almost anywhere .than to man to
realise hia idea of Ood.
Many mnnpmenti bave beep railed

yet hie detractors are many. Yet, bla

so, tbat be bad uot bared hii bosom
tu the world. Had be not done io
ho would have been spared tbe ruth

I am surprised at thu want of charity, at the pitylessneu of Iheir judgments. "0," they say, "Hums was
not a guod man. Bums drank wbis
l.y." Hut what if be ilidt Is Bums
Ihu only man who drank whisky. The
real Bonis is lhe sincere poet. Hii
head and iiis heart were of tbe purest
gold. I have recently received from
thu Old t'nuiitry u paper dealing with
Hums, and that paper said that wu
weru getting io civilised that soon no
one would understand Burns. "How,"
il asks, "is it lo be supposed for ono
moment that Hum:, can endure!"
Hums answered that question long
ago in bis poem: "The Urigs of Ayr"
(Bridges of Ayr).

I followed the stairway to tbe hot

t bit of llulteiied paraffin tbout tb*

After re-ascending theae stall's I
tiood once more looking Idly down
over the baluatrade, going over In
my mind the parts of the puttie which
bad been aet for me to bring together
Into tn intelligible tnd perfectly
rounded whole, tnd wondering what 1
would aucceed In making of It all. For
u while I wtt aware of a ttrange laok
of confidence 111 myiolf, of a feeling
ol uncertainly. Had I been negligent
in not arreallng both Maillot and
llurke? It seemed lhe almplett and
must, dlrct method of proceeding; II
would he no difficult mailer to faalen
thu crime on one or tho othor, or both

lew plain details which Ity so Invll
Ingly belore ino?
i'i ii..i.i. lhe Intrusion uf a pair of
blue eyis Into tho midst of my cogitations hud much to do with my Irresolution. Somehow 1 waa extremely
desirous ol winning their approval.
The inni iliihii that I might win more
did not enter my thoughts, because,
I I, ii.. i. .I rather dismally, Iho owner
of the blue eyes moved lu a sphere in
which I hud neither purt nor parcel.
dtlll, my determination to tolve tbe
mystery of Felix 1'sge's death was
Inextricably Inierwoven wilh another
determination lu win one liual friendly, commendatory look —parbtpt a
word or twu, or even a warm hand-
clasp -from Miss Ueiievleve Cooper.
How wus I to do Uiat? liy fastening uu odious iiiun- upon her cousin's
lover? 1 shrank from such au alternative. Heaven grtnt thtt so fur 1
bad not reasoned falsely.
It may seem a poor business tbut
tu mix Miuiim in with one's humdrum

After iiiniiii,' reflection, 1 can think
of hut one enlonuatlng pleu:  I  was
my   curiosity.   The   carpet   betweeir only twenty six at Ihe lime.

Have You Figured the Loss
From "Busy" Signals?
•Suppose a customer is aboul lo order something or
oilier over your telephone. Ilie operator funis your
line or lines engaged, [lie customer musl wait or
order somewhere else. Maybe he tbooses to wait —
mils again again finds your line or lines busy,
lhal means a possible loss of a customer.
ihe business man needs adequate telephone service for -the accommodation of his
business and his customers. When you lose
customers through "busy" signals, il hat
been proved that your telephone Utilities
are inadequate.

..Februtry B, 1B18.
A system ef governmental loam at a
low rato of interest for the actual settler, was ono of the departures recommended by tbe annual meeting of Ihe
,t'milml Fanner's lustltuts, which recently convened in Victoria This was
later submitted to tho government in
an interview accorded thu ejeiiutivo of
tbe In; nun.■ by the Premier At this
interview the oxueutivo n.|u,..l.ii Ihut
a Boyal Cuniiiiission lie appointed lo in-
ijuirs into tbe wliule question nf cheap
money for the farmur, special mention
being mudo of lhe pluu in nperutimi
in Denmark, in purls of Austruliu ami
in Ireland The reply nf Premier Mcllride was symputhclic uml wus to llic
effect that their suggestions wsre very
largo onus and involved.the acceptance
of u policy never yot tried uul in this
country ,thut tlm government wss fully
alive to the requirements of tlio sot-
tiers, ami likewise desirous of doing
ils full duty al ones \o the province
at large and lu the fanning community therein
Miine the endorsation uf this proposition by the Farmers' Institute, the
matter hus been widely'<discussed and
it has been pointed out from different
sources thul the uduption uf a system
nf num. tar. assistance, upon the pari
nf tho government in favor of any
uue section of tho community would
'im Hint' u grave departure which
might involve far reaching developments, inasmuch as it might constitute
u precedent and be made the basis of
similar demands upon Ihe purl uf uther
classes uf the community.
While considerable weight must un
denial,ly tin attached to this contention
it is in ■.'■nli, I ', worthy'of note thai
lite report of the royal commission on
taxation contain! a recommendation,
iilinli, in ell" I ii iiiun ii i - to a .until
liiition of government funds fur lhe

In tbe in,I,.,.t,,ui firmer ai
an encouragement lo flic food pro
dining induitry of agriculture. It is
dun. nit, therefore, to sec wherein the
principle involved iu Ihis recnnimeu'
dulion differs from that involved from
the recommendation of the Farmer.*'
In point of fact, a consideration of
the details of tbe two plans would ap
pear to make rather in favor of the re
commendation of the institute, The re
I'onimindatiou of tbe Commlwioners
I'linti'iiiplalm a gift outright, of slut,'

The recommendation of tba commit-
tionert "contemplate! tbii abioluti (fifl
of government funds, tot to tbt fir
mor wbo is laboring against   heavy
oddt in a small way (ami Wlto for
tbat reason might be held lo require
and to bo worthy of somo assistance),
but to the farmer who has attained a
positiop of opulence ami who of all
members of his class is hast alilu lo
sustain hii full share of taxes, without
deduction of any kind. The riicom-
inundation of thu Farmers' Institute,
on the other hand, recommends iiione
tary assistance, by way of luan uf
government funds, for the plotter, for
the mail whu with his capital nf heullli
and industry ami energy is prepared
tu selllii upon Iho wild lauds of the
province, to redeem them from the
wilderness, to cause them to yield new
contribution! to the volume of food products gruwn iu the province for home
consumption to make of them ultimately
a insuiis of increased revenue to the
pruviucia! treaaury and tho niau whu in
addition to this will rear his family
upon the soil and thus add yet furthei
to the agricultural population of Hie
Public opinion may he said to be as
yet iint'oiined, is to the advisability of
giving effect through legislation, to ei
ther of these recommendations, but
if the principle of sttte iisiatance lu
agriculture be ciii,,'.led, Ihere are good
grounds for concluding that the recim
mendations of lhe Farmers' Institute
are better fitted to meet the real re
quirements u fthe caae, than those of
the commission on taxation in this re
The action liken by Ihe municipal
councils and the Board of Trade, is
expressed in the resolutions idopted,
with reference lo the ippiication nf
the C, P. K. for railroad righli ou the
North Hhore, is without doubt aq tc
• urate reflection of public it'/ilijiient
wilh reference lo the miller in hind.
The Nortli Hhore winls (he C. p. R.
tu enier this Held, just is it would welcome iny md every other road--that
il, on a sound business basis in relation
to all North Hhore interests both pre
sent and prospective. It is not de
sired to hamper tin-, great corporation,
or any other incoming railway cor
porstion, with restrictions snd provisos
thai would place II, in any sense a
disadvantage in the transaction of
business, but il is desired lo so prolcr
North Hhore interests thai the incoming
of any railway, will not .rente soy
conilitions which would lo any degree
shut out olber roads, or in any way
close up additional avenues of business
that might be available lo the Icrrit
ory at present included in Nurlh Vin
couver City and district, at any future
time.. In adhering lo this altitude.
the citi/i'iis ind fricndi of the North
Shore a,e persuaded that Ihey are
actuated by lOund ind reasonable
business principles, which will com
mind the respect of railroad and other
commercial organlratioua and all
rcisumble requirements of whicb
ought lo receive due ronisderitlon at
their hands.
Ai at prmnt understood, tho pro
redure which the C. P. B. it foliowltg
consists of au application, under iti
originil cbirter, to tin Minister ef
lliilwayi for the approval of a route
map mado for a bridge acrou Nortb
Arm ind • connecting line of railway
from that'point to Ibi city of Nortb
Vincouver. Thii ipplirttlon il made
under tnd by virtue of power to con
itrurt Isinii.li llnei of railway, con
ferred upon them by their charier and
no ipeclal (barter li therefore ro
quired. Tbe tucriii of iny ippiication
which North Vancoover may make ai
to proviiloni, to protect North Hhore
Intereitt, depends therefore, solely
upon North Vancouver doing aide to
convince ths Minister of Biilwayi of
the rigblnoM of thote requests. If the
Minister gives hii approval conditionil
upon the C. P. B. complying witb
certain proviso! itlspoiatsd by Nortb
Vancouvor, bli decision muit prevail.
The condltioni outlined by tbt
public bddlet, nprennling the intertill
of tbt Nortb Hhore ire few In number,
tbey ire eminently rntonabla and an
aot it any unu obstructive. Thoy tre

Tba conitructlon of O, P. R, lines

Company and tlm North Shore being
able to do business to tboir mutual
benefit and would promote harmony
and good will in all those relationships
which might ariau between the Cum

Contrary to Uie usual practice lhe Assessment Notices for
1912 have heen tent lo the registered owners of properly
according to the Land Registry records.
Up to the present, purchasers h^ve heen in tlte habit of
notifying the city authorities that the property had changed hands
so that notices of assessment and taxation should not go astray.
Thit (uiiii of registration of owners has heretofore heen deemed
sufficient for city purposes, bul owing lo a recent decision the
city council is advised by its solicitors to recognise these owners
only who appear on the records of the Land Registry Office.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreements.
The North Vancouver Land and Improvement Company
has received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for properly
which it has suld and which has since changed hands two or three
. *- ,   ...      .., .1 ■  ...... _
The Company, therefore, desires to notify persons who have
purchased from it lhat they should lake steps to ensure notices
of assessment and taxation being sent to them to that they may be
come aware of the value at which they are being assessed and
pay taxes at they fall due.

Bhe spoke very quietly, bul, too, very
aarneatly. Murder Is an ugly word;
I marvelled that she did not shrink
from H.
"Why ara you ao aniloua to know,
Miss Cooper?" I Umporlsad—"out of
friendship for Mr. Maillot?"
"No," frankly meeting my Intent
look, "though lhat would be a sufficient
reaeon." Sba paused a moment, bit-
lug her under lip In Iba Intensity of
her musing.   Then,—
"Mr. Swift, I'm going to ba .perfectly

that you will do the samo by me. Am

First, he would have been u a babe

would have been no stniggle at all.
Second, tbo fellow wu uu arrant

Tbe rear stairway wae associated
with the thought of Dtirko's cowardlca,
for he had chosen lhat way to acconv

For somo limo I had been alone iu
Uie house- save, of course, for the still,
eheeit-d form The piano wu u silent
u any tomb. Tben of a sudden a
sound i-i .tut,' upon my car tbat brought
me In a ftaali to attention.
Tbore Ib a curtain fucinatlon ubniii
a dour slowly opening In a house
whicii you suppose to be empty. Un<
HI yuu have lound out the cause you
nm i ilu It to anything from gliosis to
llengal tigers, and even then may be
Bure of a surprise. The Invisible
agency may turn out to he ouly tbe
wind or a wandering cat. But II makes
no difference what starts the door to
i- win ring open; the bald fact of Its
doing so when by all known laws It
should remain firmly shut, Is per sa
pototit enough, or hypnotic enough,—
or whatever Influence 11 Is that eierta,
—to tout you at once lo tbe spot until
tlte Unseen declares Itself. In truth,
an opening door Is pregnant with such
Inllnlii' pnsalflllltli'B.
It wu with some such sorl of suspended animation Ibat I stared down
over the baluatrade and walled, my
look glued upon tha front door. It
swung Inward with a siowuesa Inei-
presslbly aggravating. And then I ra
colled with a little cry,
Miss Oenevieve Cooper waa standing In the lower hall, pale and troubling, and darling quick nervous
glanues In every direction.
A fact
' At my liivoluutary eipresslon of
amusement, Mlaa Cooper looked up,
ami our eyes met. Her charming face
Immediately broke Into a smile; her
fears seemed to fall away frnm her
Ills- the dissolving of a sun smitten
'Mr. Hwllll" she esclalmed under

"I'm an glad! I wu uli uid I shoulil
nut Ilml you here."
'lhe Idea of hur wanting lo dud me
for any reason was distinctly pleulng.
I'm afraid I appeared for Ibe moment
a trifle (nullah; I wu tongue-lied, at
any rate.
"May I come up?" aba went on
brightly.   "Or will you come down?"
She was so pretty standing Ihere
ahd looking up al me, so everything
tbat a dainty, reltnid little lady should
be, tbat I could have remained Indefl-
nli, I) watching her,
Hut I'm so glad to say tbat I did
nol. I found my tongue by and by,
and vnii i ,i some Inane remark lo tba
affect lhal she might mosl usuradly
"coma'up," If she bad Uie leut Inclination to do ao, but, on ibe other band,
tbat I wu more Uian wlillng to "•■mnn
down." Which I did, whan she made
known her choice by sitting down In
lin b»-ii|«- Stodger aud 1 had occupied
aome hours earlier,
Hut I moved down Uie steps deep In
meditation. Oreat u had bean my
surprise whan ibe opening front door
disclosed Miss Cooper, I wu not long
In surmising wby aba bad come, and!
WU mora than a trifle reluctant to dis

wilh a lady ao obviously geulle and rained. The subject wu ao utterly for

that. I (alt she could barken to and review tba different upecia of tha crime
only With shuddering aversion. But,
fafu mt, bow Incapable Is any man of
estimating a woman's fortitude!
While I descended to Inr, aba <on

perhaps, but with a direct, fearless
glance which tha duilaat comprehension muat haVe understood.
