Teachers Summer Class In Manual Training Held at Lord Selkirk
School, Cedar Cottage, South Vancouver
The Education Department of this
province has this year made the lirst
attempt at supplying its own requirement! in the leaching of manual
training, the popularity of which subject is ever increasing. This attempt
was made by arranging a training
class for teachers desirous of becoming manual training instructors. As
many of these were at present engaged in actual teaching it was necessary to fix the time of the class during the holiday and the hml month
was  chosen   for  the work.
Teachers wcre attending from Victoria, Vancouver, ami Xew Westminster, therefore a central position was
chosen and as a class for teachers
had been running at Cedar Cottage
School, Semlli Vancouver, during the
winter, ii was decided to carry this
.ii. making the summer class a continuation  nf it.
The class assembled on Mouday,
June 31, and met continuously for
iln    six   working   day-   nl'   llle   link.
finishing the course mi July 24. The
Imurs were from nine lo twelve in
ilie morning and one to three-thirty
in tlu- afternoon. Tin- work however
proved so fascinating lhat many of
lln- sludcnts began long before 9 ee'-
clock, some as early a- 7 o'clock, anil
did nut finish often until 5 o'clock
in the afternoon. All evinced the
greatest desire to become thoroughly
acquainted wiih the besl methods of
presenting this subject ami iln- best
schemes to adopt tee get the besl results out of the subject.
Mr. W. K. Woodcock, supervisor
of manual instruction for Smith Van-
' "liver, was appointed by the F.du-
cation Department of the Province
I" conduct the class. lie has had
much experience in conducting similar cla.-si-s in England, where these
summer classes arc the chief source
nf -upplv nf teachers I'm this special
work. And these conditions are
much more strenuous for the summer holiday is only of four weeks'
duration, and teachers taking such a
course thut lose the whole of those
four weeks' holiday. But such is the
demand for ibis training that centres
arc established in seven or eight districts of England, generally holiday
resorts, so that the surroundings of
those taking this strenuous training
may  be of a   holiday  nature.
Teachers in training make a recognized course of models, the objects
chosen being attractive in themselves
and in the making of these are shown
lhe correct methods to be pursued.
The course arranged this year consisted of 24 models, one of which wa.s
1" bc an original model. Sonic exceptionally line examples of work were
procured by the members of the class,
work thai no skilled cabinet maker
need be ashamed of. and the original
models were of an exceptionally high
All these models were grouped together at thc end of lhe course and
photographed so that a permanent
record may be kept of the result of
the month's work. At the same time
a photograph was taken of the members nf lln- class, 'Sn that now lhe
\-nrkers and lhe work will make com-
I1 iiiimi pictures.
Running   concurrently   with    this
class was one in manual training met-
al work at the King Edward High
School, Vancouver.    This was for the
manual    training    teachers    already
qualified and actually teaching the
woodwork branch nf lhe subject.
Mi-ialwork is intended in follow thc
woodwork of the  Public School  when
tin- pupil reaches tin- High School.
This class was visited by the members "f the woodwork class nn Tuesday, July 15. and many we-re fired
with ��� desire to eventually add this

Conservative bouquet distribution al

accompanied by tIn ir wives and
children, The picnic resolved itself
into a celebration feer all and nol the
lasl of those who enjoyed the- out.
Ing were the rising generation whieh
was present In large numbers. All
told, about 2.fH)0 suills enjoyed themselves in the cool glades of the park.
In a ringing speech full of logical
reasoning, Mr. M. A. Macdonald,
president "i the Provincial Liberal
Association, stamped himself as a
fighter second to nunc in the political field. He ably dealt with many
of the big questions affecting this
province, and in scathing terms
roundly condemned the McBride administration, noteworthy in su far
that its chief wurk had been lo sacrifice the best lands In the province
tu the speculator to the detriment of
the fanners and buna fide settlers and
liritish  Columbia  generally.
For the past six ur seven years,
Mr. Maidonald stated lhal the people of this province had been living
in a speculative atmosphere, Thc
government had been squandering
the public funds. The McBride government had had a lung life. It was
now suffering frum decrepit old age.
It   had  had  a   merry   life.    The  large
bounty al its disposal bad been exploited iu personal benefit and general detriment. No less a sum than
$20,000,000 went out eef this province
every year to buy food-Stuffl which
should be produced here. The whole
trouble was thai  the land speculator
had   got   in  befure   the   farmer.     Rich
lands had been bartered for a Bong
anel lhe- legitimate land seeker and
Si ttlcr had been given no chance to
bid for the Boil.
Mr. Macdonald described Sir Ri<li-
ard as Premier Esau, and said that
he certainly bad received a mess of
pottage. The auctioneers, posing as
statesmen at Victoria, had brought
British Columbia  tu this pass.    Pre-

Speaking of naval defense, Sir

he had  been   privileged  to call  in  an
official  way  on   the  commander  of

was tangible evidence of the loyal.y

was proposed to place $.?5.(XX),00<1
aside for this purpose, the dreadnoughts to remain the property of

thought thai there was a chance to
malic political advantage out of the
occasion, and the matter, which
ihould have been viewed from the
standpoint of anxiety to contribute
to the cost of that navy on which

CASTING aside all party views in the matter, it is not
in the interests of South Vancouver that the40,000people who live within the municipality's boundaries should
be practically deprived of representation at Ottawa and
Victoria. The Vancouver "Sun/' a journal which has
been doing much of late to discredit South Vancouver
in the eyes of the outside world, publishes a lengthy editorial on the subject of Provincial Representation, which
makes some amends for past sins, and which in part is
aes follows :
"There ean be no question at all of the unfairness under which the riding of Richmond labors. It has only
one member in the legislature while thirteen other constituencies in the province, whose combined voters are
less in number than those on thc Richmond list, send
fourteen members to the legislature. That is these thirteen constituencies which together have a less voting
population than Richmond possess thirteen more members in the legislature than it does. Tbat is obviously
placing Richmond at an immense disadvantage. It robs
it of any influential voice it might have in provincial affairs.
"Our system of government is. in theory at least, based
on the principle of representation hy population and yet
contrast Richmond's strength in the country and then
in the legislature with the strength in the country and in
the legislature of some of the other constituencies. The
number of voters in Richmond is 9,888, and these 9.888
voters send one member to the legislature, the present
member being Mr. Carter-Cotton. The constituency of
Atlin has 156 voters, and these 156 voters send one member to the legislature, thc present member being Dr.
Young, minister of education. Then Cariboo with 838
voters has two members; the Islands with 760 voters
has one member, who is a cabinet minister.
"Is it not all extremely absurd? Is it not a disfranchis-e
ment of the constituency of Richmond which should be
regarded as intolerable by the public of that community,
Is it not manifest that a remedy must speedily be found
for such a state of affairs? With a total voting population
in the province of 101,000 and with forty-two members in
the legislature the proper arrangement, if we adhered
strictly to the principle of representation by population
would be one member for approximately every 2,500
voters. If this were carried out, always with entire fairness to the rural constituencies, that is on the basis we
formerly suggested that 100 voters in Vancouver and
Victoria should not receive more representation thai 75
in the rural ridings, Richmond would then have four
members in the legislature. Xo difficulty wouhl he found
in making a division that would do justice to the community. North Vancouver for example ought to have
a member and South Vancouver, Burnaby and Point
Grey with the balance of the Richmond riding attached
to it, which would give the required four seats in the
are at variance with the standards of commercial life in
every civilized community, The 'World' 1ms b^en pictured as weltering in business embarrassment and financial ruin. A concern whose assets are greatly in excess
of its liabilities and whose standing in the community was
never better than it is today, has been represented as
moribund, and drifting towards dissolution.
"There are vipers, vultures, hyenas of the human species,
whose function in nature it is to sting lo the death
whose fined is carrion, dead matter that once mu
part of living things, higher in the scale of being than
themselves. They are met with in the commercial world.
Their sting is the poisoned arrow of malevolent speech,
eif false insinuation. Hy stings oft-repeated, by misrepresentation cunningly insinuated and diabolically reiterated and disseminated, they seek to trail a commercial
reputation in the dust and mire. Their thoughts, their
nun-, their purpose, the end and object of their being is
the ruin of their lelleews. These human hyenas are Ibe
scum and the scavengers of thc commercial world, the
black-hands win, lurk iu elark places, waiting tee strike."
Behind the Vancouver "World" is the guiding genius

Vancouver, a man who thrives best in adversity, a man
who makes enemies because he makes progress, a fearless man and a fighting man, a Daniel among Canadian
IN the permanent street Improvement in Vancouver during the past years, the citizens have been aggravated
with the cost, inconveniences and unsightltiiess of the
constant tearing up of new pavement for the purpose of
making way for the laying of sewer, water and gas pipes.
Now that South Vancouver has taken up a progressive
and active policy of permanent street work, it is to bc
trusted that thc municipal officials will sec tei it that
plans will be arranged beforehand for the taking care of
thc various underground conduits that parallel city streets.
Work will likely commence within a few days on preparing thc grade for the paving with wood block of Main
and Fraser street. Has the engineer's department prepared or the laying of water, sewer and gas pipes under
these streets before the expensive pavement is put in
place? Has the engineer's department considered the
plan of placing electric light and telephone wires under
ground on  these  two  thoroughfares?
Just a little attention paid to such details today would
save the citizens later on many hundreds of thousands
of dollars, and a great deal of inconvenience. The tearing up of the splendid block pavement which will be laid
will not enhance the durability of thc pavement and will
not add to its longevity. Thc ripping up from time to
time will be an annoyance to traffic, an ugly defacement of the street, and an absolutely needless expense.
With the glaring mistakes made by Vancouver and other
older cities to guide us in this respect, South Vancouver
should make i complete and scientific job of the paving
of Main and Fraser street���should be able to show to the
world a South Vancouver-made pavement laid on Semth
Vancouver streets, by South Vancouver men, in accordance with the highest standards of modern municipal engineering.
SOUTH VANCOUVER'S Board of Trade is showing
its usual enterprise and aggressiveness in following
up the project to establish on the North Arm of the
Fraser River a public market. Already the endorsement
and co-operation of the farmers of Ladner have been
offered. At a meeting this week, thc Board of Trade
appointed a representative to thc Fraser Valley Development League, an organization which is doing good
work for the agricultural and commercial development
of the Fraser Valley.
President R. C. Hodgson was the moving spirit in initiating the market undertaking, null iiis enthusiasm for
the   project   grows   ever   brighter.     Merging   the   fanners
of iiie Fraier Valley and the consumers of Greater Vancouver al a point "ii the North Arm will do much to
lower the high coil of living on the Peninsula. President Hodgson has iu hand plans for the market buildings
Hn all sides, the Hoard "i Trade is receiving encouragement in the work, and here seems to remain only tbe
adjustment of finances to see the undertaking brought
to fruition.
Development <,f a public market em lhe River is an improvement which will go hand in hand with thc permanent street improvement being undertaken, the developing of a national harbor for South Vancouver, and
thc many other advances being made in the district's
EADERS of the Vancouver "World," in view of strange
talcs that have been going the rounds, have doubtless
read with satisfaction the statement printed in the editorial columns of that journal, Saturday last���a statement which will set at rest the minds of thc more substantial people of Greater Vancouver, as to the financial stability of the best daily newspaper west of Winnipeg.    In part, the  article  ran as  follows :
"For a few weeks past The 'World.' its management
and its affairs have been made the object of a bitterly
vindictive campaign, the design of which has been plain
to the management and to everyone connected with the
business. The management was informed a few weeks
ago, that unless they disposed of the busbies at a figure
tken offered, an irresistible combination of interests and
individuals would be organized for the purpose of compelling acceptance of the terms, or failing this, to put the
present owners out of business. The management did not
agree to sell at the figure and on the terms offered. Since
then the campaign has been carried on by methods which

found an exact profile .if the Attorney-General "f British
Columbia. On a clear day it may be seen���the broad,
bumpy forehead, peculiarly pugnacious nose, short upper
lip, the football chin���turned to the everlasting skies. No,
the face made out of the rugger crags docs not rest anywhere near the "Sleeping Beauty," but is some distance
to the cast.  Seriously, it is an uncanny likeness.

NICELY ROUNDED CHEEKS, well filled collars and
comfortable belts were conspicuous at the Conservative

of double chins, and an inclination towards longtitude
rather than latitude, characterized the Liberal rally at

2. Whal meaning has the amethyst?
3. Whal we.uld be a suitable costume for an early fall or late .summer bride, who will be travelling
some distance before the ceremony,

4. What   color   woulil   best   suit   a
girl who is tall, slight, with rather
fair hair, brown eyes and a dark rosy
complexion, nineteen years old, and
how  long should  her  skirls be?

interest in my page. I am see glad to
hear from you and trust you will
come again as I quite enjoy hearing
from the various readers ami am
always   willing   to   answer   questions.
1. Yet, there is such a stone, but il
is very rate. I have never seen one
and for the benefit eif both you and
myself I enquired of a jeweller, who
had only seen one himself, but explained to mc that il somewhat resembled a sardonyx, only it is darker,
between a slate grey and black in
color, and Ihe one he had seen was
richly carved, as it seems to he a
hard stone without lustre.
2. I am .sorry, but 1 do nut know the
meaning of lhe amethyst, possibly
some of our readers may and will
kindly lei us know, which 1 shall bc
glad  to publish  later.
3. From this question I infer you
will be married in the suit you travel
in. Cream serge would be awfully
smart with some natty hat lo match,
white shoes and gloves. Of course,
if yuu were to make a lengthy journey afler the ceremony il would be

years, who has youth and health and
all the charming requirements, such
as you describe ought to be able to

and tan should be exceptionally becoming, and if the skirts wcre worn
to the hoot-tops, I fancy il would bc
sufficiently long, though eme cannot always judge of such things frum
age. It was only this week 1 met a
nice looking young girl who would
pass for twenty anywhere, and yet
1 know her to be only fifteen years.
So, if your friend is tall and wears
her hair up it might be advisable to
lengthen  the skirts.
I trust this may help you and 1
shall be glad to hear from you again.

urban authorities for collection and
distribution of produce with a view
to  the   securing  to   the   producers   of
the province or their expanding markets; assistance iu the clearing and
draining of lands, and the establishment of agricultural banks.
It is devoutly te. be hoped thai
some practical result will follow from
these various efforts, bul meanwhile
something can be done at once and
a movement often finds salvation ill
activity. The Progress Club has
pledged itself to aid to the extent of
its power any movement that will
emphasize the wisdom of encouraging home agriculture. It was at the-
Progress Club that the farmer became articulate tome months ago
when the facile optimism of the distant   view   of  agriculture  received   a
to all the farmers' institutes and
boards of trade in the province with
the view tei iln generation of pro-
vincial interest in the  subject.
The suggesiie.ii as to immediate
pi ssible steps for the encouragement
of home production will be gathered
from the following letter which is
being se-nt by the Progress Club to
about fifty women's organizations.
Dear   Madame :
liver forty millions of dollars are
sent out of this province annually to
purchase fruits, vegetables and other
products of ilu s il, that can bi grown
here,   and    at    the    ..line    lime    British
Columbia growers have- generally
found ii impossible to secure a satis-
factory  markel   for  their products.
This condition must be changed
if this   Province is t<���  prosper as it
speak upon the questiotl if you should
Iii the meantime we would offer aes
a practical suggestion . that your
members sheiuld this year require
their leaders to supply British C ���. I -
umhia fruit for canning as well as
for table use. It may be necessary to
wait a week or ten day- longer for
some Uriiish Columbia varieties suitable ie-r canning than for those- grown
outside the Province, but the benefit accuring to emr country therefrom would surely be ample compensation for any inconvenience
caused by the delay.
We trust that we may be favored
with an early reply assuring us of
your valued co-operation.
Obviously the- appeal here is t'i the
"Spirit of tin- I live-,'' as Maeterlinck
calls  that  mystic  -pint of commun-

The 1'niteel .tales lawn tennis team
carried off the world's championship
trophy on July 2X, when Maurice !���'..
McLoughlin, of San Francisco, won
lhe fourth and deciding match il
contest with England tor thc Dwight
F,  Davis  international  trophy.
McLoughlin, the American national champion, was drawn again*!
Charles P. Dixon, and won in straight
sets, 8-6, 6-3, 6-2. The first sei was
haul fought, bill Dixon was ill the
lead only once. As sunn as McLoughlin steadied down to his task
he had the Englishman at bis mercy.
The second and third sets were easy
for the brilliant American, who was
plav ing at lhe top of his game.
During the thirteen years since the
Davis Cup was lirst put in play,
eleven championship tournments have
been completed, and the score of
championships stand as follows :
Hritish Isles. 5; Australasia, 4: United Stales, 2. Not including the present series, forty-three player.s, representing six countries, have battled
for the trophy, the number by nations or colonies being : United
Stales. 15; British Isles, 14; Australasia, 5; France, 5; Belgium, 2; Austria, 2.
As soon as play for lhe trophy was
announced, England challenged the
United States for the cup, losing the
lirst contest in the summer of 1900
in straight matches. Two years later the Hritish Isles players had another try, but were repelled three
matches to two. Encouraged by ibis
improved showing, they returned
again in 1903 with a team composed
of the Doherty Brothers, and won
four matches tei one. England held
he cup until 1907, when the Australasians ween with their two famous
stars, Brookes and Wilding. The
trophy was held in the Antipodes until last winter, when the British
Isles team, consisting of Parke, Dixon and Beamish won and carried the
bowl back to  England.

raznrs arc. of course, at the bottom
of some unidentified trunk. It is a
plot to drive me to bay rum and a
monologuing barber. Give me a
pen that doesn't scratch. I hate
pens  that scratch."
"Sit down," said double-chinned,
gray lawyer Oldport. "The worst

yet ready to sign. They will be
laid before you tomorrow at eleven.
You will miss another day. Twice

your sorrows do not embrace a haircut."
"If," said Blinker, rising, "the act
did not involve more signing of papers. I would take my business out
of your hands at once. Give me a
cigar,  please."
"If," said Lawyer Oldport. "I had
cared to see an old friend's son
gulped down at one mouthful by
sharks I would have ordered you to
take it away long ago. Now. let's
quit fooling. Alexander. Besides, the
grinding task of signing your name
some thirty times tomorrow, I musl
impose upon you the consideration
of a matter of business���of business.

ago, but you would not listen���you

I think. The subject has come up

"Oh, property!" interrupted Blinker,
"Dear Mr. Oldport, I think you mentioned tomorrow. Let's have it all
at one dei'Se tomorrow���signatures and
property and snappy rubber hands
and that smelly sealing-wax and all.
Have luncheon with me? Well, I'll
try to remember to drop in at eleven
tomorrow morning."
The Blinker wealth was in lands,
tenements and hereditaments, as the
legal phrase goes. Lawyer Oldporl
had once taken Alexander in his
1 itie pulmonary gasoline runabout to
se the many buildings and rows of
buildings that he owned in the city.
For Alexander was sole heir. They
had .-.mused Blinker very much. The
houses looked so incapable of producing big sums of money that
Lawyer Oldport kept piling up in
banks  for   him   to  spend.
In the evening Blinker went to
one of his clubs, intending to dine.
Nobody was there except some old
fogies playing whist. Everybody was
out of town. But here he was kept
in like a schoolboy to write his
name over and over on pieces of
paper   His  wounds  were  deep
Blinker turned his hack- nu the fogies, and said to '.he cluh steward
who had come furwarc with some
r.i'ti-e use about c ilu fresh "almon

alone upon a cam;) Stool But Blinker did not intend i" he brazen; the
girl was se, wonderfully good looking
that he forgot for one minute that
he was the prince incog and behaved
just as he did in society.
She was looking at him, too, and
not severely. A puff of wind threatened Blinker's straw hat. He settled it again. The movement gave
the effect of a bow. The girl nodded
and smiled, and in another instant
he was seated at her side. She was
dressed all in white, she was paler
than Blinker imagined milkmaids
and girls of humble .station to bc.
but she was as tidy as a cherry bios
som. and her steady, supremely frank
gray eyes looked out from the intrepid  depths  of an  untroubled *Oul.
"Ilnw dare ymi raise your hat to
me?" she asked, with a smile-redeemed  severity.
"I didn't," Blinker said, but he
quickly covered the mistake by extending it to, "I didn't know how to
keep  from  it after  I  saw you."
"I don't allow gentlemen tn sit
by nie lee whom 1 have not heen introduced." she .said, with a siielden
haughtiness that deceived him. lie

I ing laugh brought him down to his

���| guess yem weren't going far." she
declared with beauty's magnificent
"Are vou going to Coney Island?"
asked   Blinker.
"Me," She turned upon him wide-
open eyes full of bantering surprise.
"Why, what a question! Can't you
see that I'm riding a bicycle in the
park?" Her drollery took thc form
of  impertinence.
"And I am laying brick- nn a tall
factory chimney," said Blinker. "Mayn't wee see Cnney together? I'm all
alone and I've never been there before."
"It depends." said the girl, "on how
nicely you behave. I'll consider your
application  until  we  get  there."
Blinker took pains to provide
against the rejection to his application. He strove to please. Hc learned
she was twenty and her name was
Florence; that she trimmed hats in a
millinery shop; that she lived in a
furnished room with her best chum
Ella, who was cashier in a shoe
store; and that a glass of milk- from
the bottle on the windowsill and an
egg that boils itself while you twist
up ynu hair makes a breakfast good
enough for anyone. Florence laughed when she heard  Blinker."
"Well," she said, "it certainly shows
that ynu have imagination. It gives
the Smith's a chance for a little rest,
They landed at Cnney, and were
dashed nn the crest nf a great
human wave nf mad pleasure-scck-
��� s intn the walls anil avenues nf
Fairyland gone intn vaudeville.
Witli a curious eye, a critical  mind
and a f.iily withheld judgement, Blink-
,i   considered  the  temples,  payodas
and kieesks of popularized delights.
Basket parlies bumped liim; sticky
children tumbled, howling, under his
(eet, candying his clothes. The publicity gentlemen with megaphones,
each belnre Iiis own stupendoui attraction, reeared like Niagara in his
ears. But what held Blinker in awful fascination was ihe mob, the
multitude,  ihe  proletariat   shrieking.
Struggling, hurrying, panting, hurling
itself iu incontinent frenzy, with un-
abashcel abandon, into the ridiculous
sham palaces of trumpery and tinsel
In the midst of his disgust he
turned and looked down at Florence
by his side She was ready with her
quick smile and upturned, happy
eyes, as bright and clear as the water
in trout pools. The eyes were saying
that they had the right to be shining and happy, for was their owner
not with her (for the present) Man.
her Gentleman Friend and holder of
the keys of the enchanted city of
Blinker  did  not  read  her  look  ac-
! curately, but by some miracle he suddenly   saw   Coney  aright.
He no longer saw a mass of vulgarians seeking gross joys. He now
looked clearly upon a hundred thousand true idealists. Counterfeit and
false though the garish jeiys of these
spangled temples wcre lie perceived
that deep under th gilt surface they
offered saving to the restless human
heart. Here, at least, was the husk
of Romance, the empty but shining
casque of Chivalry, thc breath-catching though safe-guarded dip and
flight of Adventure, lhe magic carpet lhat transports you In the realms
of fairyland, though ils journey was
through hut a few poor yards nf
space. He nn longer saw a rabble,
but his brothers seeking llie ideal.
Almost humbled, Blinker rolled up
j the shirt sleeves of his mind and join-
I ed the idealists.
"You are Ihe lady doctor," he said
! to Florence. "How shall we go about
dning this jolly conglomeration of
fairy   tales,   incorporated?"
"We will begin there." said thc
Princess, pointing le' a fun pagoda
on the edge nf thc sea, "and we
will take them all in. nnc by one."
They caught the eight o'clock returning boat and sal, filled with pleasant fatigue against the rail in the
bow. listening to the Italians' fiddle
and harp. Blinker had thrown off
care. The North Woods seemed to
him an uninhabitable wilderness. What
a fuss he had made over signing
his name���pooh! he could sign it a
hundred times. And her name was
as pretty as she was���"Florence." he
said to himself a great many times.
As the boat was nearing its pier
in the North River a two-funnelled,
foreign-looking steamer was dropping down the bay. The boat turned
ils nose in toward its slip. The steamer veered to seek mid-stream, yawed,
seemed to increase its speed and
struck the Coney boat on the side
near the 'Stern, cutting into it with a
terrifying shock and crash.
While the 600 passengers were
mostly tumbling about the decks in
shrieking   panic,   lhe     captain     was
! shouting   at   the     steamer     lhat     it
' should not back off and leave the
rent exposed for the water to enter.
I But   the   steamer   lore   ils   wav   out
| like   a   savage   sawfish   and   cleaved
i its heartless way, full sneed ahead.
The boat began to sink at its stern,
! but   moved   slowly   toward   the   slip.
The  passengers  were  a   frantic  inub,
unpleasant   to  behold.
Blinker held Florence tightly until
the boal had righted itself. Sin- made
no I und eir sign of fear. Ile ftood
,,ii a eaiiip stnnl ripped off the slats
above his head and pulled down a
I number e>f life preservers. He began
to buckle- eme around Florence, The
P..lien canvas split and the fraudulent granulated cork came pouring
out in a stream. Florence caught a
I handful   of  it  and   laughed   gleefully.
"It looks like breakfast food," Ale
said. "Take it off. They'er DO good."
She unbuckled it and threw it on
the deck. She made Blinker sit down
and sat by his side and put her hand
in his. "What'll you bet we don't
reach the pier all right?" she said, and
began to hum a song.
And now the captain moved among
the passengers and compelled order.
The boat would undoubtedly make
hcr slip, he said, and ordered the women and children to the bow, where
they could land first. The boat,
very low in the water at thc stem,
tried  to  make his promise  good.
"Florence," said Blinker, as she
held him close by an arm and hand,
"I  love you."
"That's what they all say," she replied,  lightly.
"I am not one of 'they at all,'" he
persisted. "I never knew anyone I
cnuld love before. I could pass my
life with you and bc happy every day.
I am rich. I can make things all
right   for  ynu."
"Thai's what Ihey all say," said
the girl again, weaving the words
into  her little, reckless  song.
"Don't say that again," said Blinker in a tunc that made her look at
him   in   frank   surprise.
"Why shouldn't I?" she asked calmly. "They all do."
"Who are they?" he asked, jca-
fietis for the first time in his existence.
"Why, thc fellows I know."
"Do  you   know  so   many?"
"Oh, well, I'm imt a wall flower,"
she answered with modest complacency.
"Where do you see these���these
men?  At your home?"
"Of course, not. I meet them just
as I did you. Sometimes on the boat,
sometimes in the park, sometimes on
the street. I'm a pretty good judge
of a man. I can tell in a minute
if a fellow is one who is likely to get
"What  do  you  mean   by   'fresh?'"
"Why, try to kiss you���me, I
"Do any of them try that?" asked
Blinker,   clenching   his   teeth.
"Sure, all men do. You know that."
"Do you allow them?"
"Some.   Not   many.     They     won't

"What's wrong about my meeting
fellows?"  she   asked,   wonderingly.
"Everything," he answered, alnieist
savagely. "Why don't you entertain
your company in thc house where
you live? Is it necessary to pick

She- kept her absolutely ingenious
eyes upon his.
"If you could sec the place where
1 live you wouldn't ask that. I live
in Brickdust Row. They call it that
because there's red dust from the
bricks crumbling over everything.
I've lived there for more than four
years. There's no place to receive
company. You can't have anybody
come to your room. What else is
there to do? A girl has geet to meet
men, hasn't she?"
"Yes." he said hoarsely. "A girl
has got to meet a���has got In meet

"The first time one spoke to me
on the street." she continued. "I
ran home and cried all nighl. But

on rainy days and stand in the vestibule until one comes up with an
umbrella. I wish there was a parlor,
so I could ask you to call, Mr. Blinker���are you really sure it isn't Smith.
The boat landed safely. Blinker had
a confused impression of walking
with the girl through quiet cross-
town   streets   until   she   snipped   at   a
corner and held oul lu-r hand.
"I live just one mure block over,"
she said. "Thank you fnr a very
pleasant  afternoon."
Blinker muttered something anil
plunged northward till he found a
cab. A big, gray church loomed slowly at his right. Blinker shook his
fist at it through the window.
"I gave you a thousand dollars
last week," he cried under his breath,
"and she meets them in yuur very
deiors. There is something wrung;
there is something wrong."
At 11 the next day Blinker signed
his name 30 times with a new pen
provided by Lawyer Oldport.
"Now let us go to the woods," he
said surlily.
"You are not hviking well," said
Lawyer Oldport. "The trip will do
you gnnd. But listen, if you will, to
that little matter of business of which
T spoke to you yesterday, and also
five years ago. There are snme buildings, 15 in number, of which there

j loud,   discordant   laugh.
"Brickdust Row for an even hundred," he cried. "And I own il. Have

"The tenants have some such name
for  it,"  said  Lawyer  Oldport.
Blinker arose and jammed his hat
down to his eyes.
"Do  what  ynu  please  with   it,"  he
said   harshly.   "Remodel   it,   burn   it,
