Desperate for more Information, Harrison probed in every conceivable diree

of Hardy's, one Israel Snow, a resident
of Rockdale, might perhaps be enabled
to assist him

The news of a will mude recently, n
will   concerning   which   Dorothy   knew
Mnlhiug -this wus so utterly disconcert-
ing thnt it quite overshadowed, fur ;i
time, the equally important factor in tin
ease supplied hy Durgin's tale concern
ing this unknown Himm Cleave.
Where the elews pointed now it was
utterly impossible to know. If the fact
should transpire that Dorothy did, iu
fact, know something of the new will
made by her uncle, or if Foster know,
and no such will shoul 1 ever be produced, the aspect of the case would be dark
Nut at nil convinced thut Theodore
Rob iu SOU might not yet lie found ut the
bottom of the mystery. Garrison wondered where the fellow had gone and
what his departure might signify.
Israel Snow was out of town. He
would not. return till the morrow. Garrison 's third night was passed in the
little hotel, and no word hail come from
Dorothy, lie had writtea four letters
to the Eighteenth Street address. He
was worried by her silence.
In the following day Mr, Snow returned. He proved to be a stooped old
man, but he supplied a number of important facts.
In the first place lie stated that Hiram
Cleave had long since assumed another
name which no one in Rockdale knew.
No one was acquainted with his business
or his whereabouts. The reason of the
enmity between him and John Hardy
went deep enough to satisfy the most
exacting mind.
Cleave, Hardy and Scott, the inventor, had been boys together, and, in
young manhood, chums. Hardy had
fallen iu love with Seott's sister, while
he was still a young, romantic man.
Cleave, developing an utterly malicious
and unscrupulous nature, had deceived
his friend Hardy, tried to despoil Miss
Scott's very life, thereby ultimately
causing her death, and Hardy had intervened only ia time to save her from
utter shame and ruin.
Then, having discovered Cleave guilty
of a forgery, he had spared no etVort
or expense till he landed the creature
ia prison out in Indiana. Cleave had
threatened his life at the time. He had
long since been liberated. His malicious
resentment had never been abated, and
for thc past two or three years, with
Miss Scott a sad, sweet niomory only,
John Hardy had lived a lonely life, constantly moving to avoid  Ins enemy.
A friend of another friend of a third
friend of Snow's, who might have moved away, had once hnd u photograph
of Cleave. Old Snow promised to pro-
«iiie it if possible aud deliver it over to
Garrison, who mude eager offers to try
tu get it for himself, but without avail.
He promised to wait for the picture,
and returned at last to his hotel.
A  telegram   was waiting for  him  at
the  desk.       He   almost   knew  what   he

Garrison faced tho intruder, a tall,
flaxen-haired, blue eyed man with a long
mustache—a person with every mark
of the gentleman upon him.
"Well,  sir,"  sain!  Harrison,  ia  some
indignation, "what can I do for you?"
"We'll wait a minute aad see,"' said
the stranger.   "My name is Jerold Fairfax, and I came to claim my wife."
Garrison almost staggered. It was
like a bolt from the bluest sky, where
naught but the Bun of glory had been
"Dorothy! What does he mean?" he
said, turning at once to the girl.
She sunk weakly to a chair and could
not meet the question in his eyes.
"Didn't you hear what I said?" demanded the visitor. "This is my wife
and I 'd like to know whnt it means, you
or somebody idse passing yourself off in
my place.''
Garrison still looked at Dorothy.
' 'This isn 't true, what the mun is saying?" he inquired.
She tried to look up.    "I—T For

the stranger. "Why wouldn't 1 follow

stuff they've been printing in the papers'
about some man passing as your husband?" He snatched out a newspaper
abruntlv, und waved   it  in  the uir.
"And if you're the man," he added,
turning to Garrison, " I 'II  inform you
right now "

AVERY Important decision was made
on Tuesday, Juno 14. hv the United States' Circuit Court of Appeals, when it declared dissolved the
Injunction granted hv Judge Hazel, of
Buffalo, to the Wright brothers restraining the Herrlng-CurtisB Company from
manufacturing airships on the ground
thnt the Ci.rti.-s machine i.s un infringe
ment on the put ent .secured by the
Wright brothers for airships on Mny
22, 1906. In rendering this decision the
Court makes it possible, it is believed,
to hold this year's international aviation meeting, which is scheduled to occur   on   TI pstead   I'la ins.   Ul.,   some
time in October, without the paying of
royalties to the Wright  brothers.
The Court declared thut the evidence
taken was not sufficient to prove the
contention of the Wrights that their patent was being infringed upon, and it
vacated the bond of $10,000 which Curtiss was compelled to file in order to
make exhibit ion flights after Judge
Hazel's decision in Buffalo. Several
weeks after the Wrights brought suit
against Curtiss in the Buffalo court, a
similar suit was instituted against Louis
Paulhan, who was then in this country
giving exhibitions. Judge Hand also
issued a temporary injunction against
Paulhan. Both cases were tuken on appeal to the Circuit Court of Appeals.
Clean II. Curtiss was enthusiastic
over the outcome of his appeal, but he
said that he expected such a decision al!
the while.
''There couldn't have been any different outcome, in my mind," he said.
'•The only thing that is absolutely new
in the Wright patent is the method ot
automatically turning a rudder when the
wings are warped toward the side of
least resistance to prevent the machine
from turning around.''
Mr. Curtiss denied that he learned
how to fly on a Wright machine. He
said that he had constructed four machines at the Hamniondsport factory before the Wrights made any public
flights. Tn commenting on the vacating
of the bond, Curtiss said in part:.
" Everyone wdio has ever operated a
Curtiss machine declares that there is
never any swerving occasioned by the
movement of the ailerons, which was the
principal contention made by the
Wrights, who claimed that it became
necessary for,an operator of mv machine
to use the steering rudder in order to
overcome this alleged turning tendency.
According to the claims of the Wrights.
the movement of the wing tips of their
aeroplane fo% balancing causes the ma-
' chine to swerve from its course. Then,
according to their statements, which are
true as to their machine, it becomes
necessary to turn the rudder to the side
offering the least resistance, so as to
bring the machine back to its course or
to hold it there. The steering of their
machine is done in practically tin1 same
manner;  accbrdfng to their claims.
" lu my machine the balancing opera
tion is entirely divorced from the steering operation. Tn balancing one aileron
is raised to the same degree thut the
other is pulled downward, the resistance
on each side of the machine remaining
the same. The rudder is never brought
into play for any purpose except to
guide the machine, .iust as the rudder of
a boat is used. Incidentally, the rudder
is turned to the side opposite to that
■whicli the Wrights have maintained it
is necessary for it to be turned. It has
been a case nf theory and suppositions
pitted against facts, and the facts have
been in our favor. Tf the Wrights had
ever operated my machine they could
never have made the claims that thev

UK King of Spain, who wont to
England for the funeral of King
Edward, is twenty-four. His Majesty, who is original in all things, is
said to hnvi* hud ;i hand in the manufacture of his face! This sounds a
strange statement, but it came about in
this way. When he was a very small
boy, he" was found one day by his attendants standing in front of Velasquez's famous picture of Philip IV., of
Spain, The young monarch looked long
and earnestly at his ancestor's portrait,
aud then said: "I will have a chin like
that." From this instant he set himself
the task of moulding Ilis chin with his
hand into the true Bourbon shape with
the result that today his likeness to
Philip is singularly striking. King Al-
phonso has a great liking for Kngland,
and some years ago, when the outlook
was very black in Barcelona and other
parts oi' Spain, and lie was asked by
a friend what he would do if he ever
found it necessary to follow Napoleon
I[T„ and other European sovereigns into
exile, he replied, "I should at once go
to England and purchase a farm in some
country district, and try to forget there
was such a place as Spain or any land
thut was less peaceful than the one in
which I found myself."

for the emigration of selected men and
their .-families. This aspect of tlie
question was raiseel at the conference,
and it was pointed out that when 'men
left their wives and children at home
there was a real danger of the dependants being deserted altogether. By
its being i**ueie possible for the whole
family tee join the* head of the house
soon ufter his start in the new country
this eventuality is removed because of
the* mun's obligations and the Government's hold upon him. Given an adequate central authority, there should
be little dilficulty in carrying out the*
scheme put forward by the Allan Liue,
whose eighty-eight years' experience
in the emigration business should of it
self command consideration.
Summed  up, the  plan  i.s as follows:
(1) That a limited number of selected pioneers be sent out iu July next,
a uel that they be required to homestead
iu -November and prepare for the arrival of their wives and children in
March, 1911; that the wives and children lie maintained from July to December, and that they be provided
with steamship and railway fare to
join the husband and father. That,
on honiesteuding, the mau be provided
with cash or credit for a start; that
the money for passage eif colonist, maintenance of wife uud family, passages of
wife and family, insurance and fidelity
bond, and cash or credit to homestend
($750 in all) he advanced as a loan,
bearing interest at 7 per cent, (repayable over five years), and secured by a
life insurance and fidelity policy, the
homestead land, subject to the home
stead laws of the Dominion already
made unci provided, to be held as uel
elilional security.
(2) That in May, Juue, and July.
1011, a further contingent of selected
hich be scent forward, and that they be
assisteel  by the 1010 pioneers to build
•Shacks and homestead, the latter having been located in 1010 by the Canadian authorities iu anticipation of this
event; that their wives ami children
be* maintained and sent forward as were
the pioneers' wives and children, and
that thev follow ill February unci
March, 101-J.
(:i) Thut this operation be repeated
(4) That the operation be regarded
nud worked as a business mutter, leaving the colonists without any suspicion
of  charitable  support  or  philanthropy.
(5) That the labor exchanges, H..M.
Board of Trade, the authorities of
which are fully posted on the matter
anei are giving consideration thereto,
be the vehicle of procedure.
(16) That the present position of
passenger agents of all descriptions be*
not interfered with, and that they form
the first means of introduction of applicants to the local superintendents of
labor exchanges.
(7) It is estimated that this scheme
—upon a basis of 2,000 pioneers, their
wives and 4,000 children, during 1010.
and 5,000 men, their wives and 10,eH!'i
children, during ench subsequent year—
could be administered upon a maximum
credit of two and a quarter millions,
which in the sixth year by repayments
with 7 per cent, interest would fall below one million nud remain nt that figure. It would provide a start in life for
20,000 people per annum, anel also pay
interest at 'A per cent, per annum, furnish a reserve fund of £.''0,001' per annum, and £10,000 per annum for ml
ministration in Great Britain.
' (8) The value of land security under
these operations woulei be more than
double the amount involved, while the
life insurance and fidelity bond would
form an additional security.
(0) Provision for a leakage ley default of 5 per cent, may lie regarded us
prudent, and this is provided for by
clauses whicli would enable the Ciieia-
diun authorities (in first instance) to
retake possession.
It. has been pointed out as the high
water mark of the above proposition
that when, say, £2,250,000 is oa loan
there would be a substantial security of
4,000,000 acres of laud, in addition to
insurance policies on the lives of the
settlers and the fidelity insurance. Thus
business, not charity, is essentially the
characteristic of what is actually a
benevolent Government help scheme,
While giving n worthy man a chance,

cidal activity of zinc as manifests itself
is associated with the coincident presence of oxygen. A much more intense
bactericidal ae-tiou is produced when
air is permitted to bubble for our hour
through water holding the colon bacilli
in suspension in the presence of aluminum, zinc, and copper. With a sulfi-
ciency of the pure meted it is thus possible to render the water completely
sterile with all three metals, and that

pears to he due to the formation of
chemical compounds, while in others the
result would seem to be the direct effect
nf thc metal in solution, although the
quantity dissolved must be extremely
small.    The writer goes ou to say:
"The subject is clearly of sufficient
interest and Importance to merit further investigation, and it would not be
surprising if a key to the germicidal
action of metals ou bacteria in water is
found in the ion.
"ft is quite conceivable, at any rate,
and especially with waters containing
salts or free carbonic acid gas, that ia
contact with metal there is some dissociation. . . . The question naturally arises in considering this subject
whether it is possible that our metallic
cisterns afford water-consumers any protection against microbic invasion."
BY a treaty recently signed by Great
Britain anel the United Stutes provision is made* for regulating the
use of water leer power purposes nt
\iuguru Falls. The Canadian side is to
be permitted the use of 30,000 cubic feet
per second, while the New York side
will bo allowed to "use 20,000 cubic feet
per second. Says a writer in the Tron
Age, of New  York:
"The amount nloltted lo the Canadian side will make possible a much
larger development thun is now in use,
but as the developing companies an*
permitted by the Canadian authorities,
as well ns by the United States authorities, to transmit and sell in the United
Stutes ut least half of the power generated in Canada, the New Vork side is
benefited bv the Canadinn development.
"The 2(1,000 cubic feet per second
allotted tee the power coiupunies on the
New York side will muke it possible
for the Niagara 4**nlls Power Company
nnd.the Niagara Fulls Hydraulic Power
nnd Manufacturing Company to perfect
their development,.:ts originally pluiineel.
It, will also loave a smnll amount of
water for use in Lockport, where one
company has a development to effect,
which wnter is diverted from the Erie
Canal. As considerable attention is
paid to efficiency at Niagara, em both
sides of the river, the water diverted
may bo expected to afford the highest
possible  results iu  power output."
ERNEST   OAWCBOFT,    writing  in
the   Hook Keeper, of  Detroit, for
June,    discusses    the     industrial
future of Canada.    In the course of his
article—the leading article of the mag
azine, by the way—he says:
"The industrial present of the Dominion of Canada is a fact; its industrial future' is assured. Canada has a
lurger ureu thun the United Stutes; and
us the population and development of
Canuda are now somewhat parallel to
the growth of the United States in the

the Federalism of Koosevelt and Taft,
it is interesting tee contemplate, both in
its economic aspects and aa a study iu
historical evolution, the Industrial future of the Nation of the North. Today England and Germany are fighting
for the same markets; ami iu view of
the fact that the perioel is approaching
when Canada will be a competitor of
the United States in the West Indies
and eSouth America, the prospective
growth of Canadian Industrialism is a
pertinont subjoct for consideration.
"Jefferson foresaw the United States
as a vnst ngrlculatural empire, but did
not allow for the marvels worked by
the inventor. Stephenson sounded the
death knell of the Jefferson agricultural
empire and paved the way for the Ham-
iltonian system of protected manufacturing cities when he invented the
steam engine. Why is that an evident,
fact? Because ihe modern railroad is
too costly an investment, and too expensive from an operative standpoint,

known in railway circles as the "return
haul." in other words, no railroad

from the fanns to the cities. If it did,
the expense of moving the freight cars

farm products. Thus the necessity of a

'I'he synopsis of the1 scheme shows
that much care has been exercised in
its preparation, and though particulars
are clearly shown and generalities
avoided, there is no doubt but that
thc propoundcrs of the project would
be prepared to make alterations to meet
nnd harmonize with departmental requirements nt present in forco or projected for the future. It is to be noted that many points which will exclusively occupy the attention of the Dominion Department of the Interior have
not formed the subject of representation at the conference above referred
to. Those points can only be elucidated after the Dominion Government
have deliberated upon them. Besides
promising to cost comparatively little,
the scheme has the merit of providing
r"nilE Toronto Telegram's opinion is
J- anxiously awaited as to the value
of a new theory for purifying
water now being discussed by the scientists. It has been found thnl in many
cases bacteria are killed ley the presence
of metals in vory minute quantities, so
that water may be sterilized by merely
allowing it to stand in n metallic vessel.
Interesting experiments have been made
by Dr. A. c. Rankin, demonstrator in
bacteriology at McGill University, .Montreal,' support this view. Snys a writer
in the Lancet (London):
"Sundry metals possess not. merely
a distinct inhibitory action upon the
growth of molds, bacteria, and other
micro-organisms, but exert even a germicidal pow.eiv Wutpr containing the
typhoid bacillus'and kept in a clean
copper bowl becomes sterile. When air
is^ passed through water containing
abundant colon bacilli thero is no inhibitory effect. Relatively large
amounts of pure zinc with large surface
area, placed in water contaminated with
•abundant, colon bacilli and allowed to
remain for one hour, bring about a recognizable, but not extreme, destruction of the bacteria; Aluminum and
copper, under similar circumstances,
have no perceptible effect. The same
experiment repeated, but with the oxygen driven out of tho water by previous
boiling, proved that none of these
metals had any influence upon tho subsequent growth of the bacteria. From
this it would appear that such bacteri*
MT. McKINLEY has been sealed a
second time, and two more expeditions are about to attempt the
feat, with very fair chances of success.
Dr. Cook, therefore, stauels vindicated
to this extent, that his claims never
embraced the impossible. He may not
have climbed Mt. McKinley, and he
may not have reached the pole, but by
almost miraculous power of prevision
he has seen the coming event a few
months in advance of his fellow-citizens; and thnt is a gift not to be ashamed of. In addition, the doctor is undoubtedly entitled to the credit for
such stimulative effect, ns the announcement of his own performances may have
exercised upon others to go and do what
he claimed to have done. As a harbinger of success, he is almost, without a
rival. It might be a very good thing
for civilization if Dr. Cook could be
induced to come out of his retirement,
and announce that he had discovered a
cure for tuberculosis, solved the cost-
of-living problem, and persuaded the
Kaiser to consent to a reduction of
armaments. Within a few months these
things would actually have been accom-
plished—by  some  one  else*.
ON" the occasion of the recent inauguration of the new Royal Line of
steamers between Montreal aud
Bristol, Alderman Twiggsc, of Bristol,
while the guest in this country of the
Canadian Northern Railway, lend an opportunity of learning much nbout Canada's marvelous growth. At a club in
Winnipeg the party foregathered with
some old-timers, and Alderman Twiggs'
questions started much "reminiscing."
Mr. Hugh Sutherland happened to remark that eight million bushels of
wheat, had that day been sold iu the
Winnipeg pits at an average prico of
a dollar a bushel. At this, Mr. C. N.
Bell, secretary of the Winnipeg Board
of Trade, an old-timer, said:
"1 remember when the Hudson's Bay
Company were the only buyers of wheat
in Winnipeg. It was Fort (larry then,
and I recall seeing their notice to the
farmers. It was posted up on the dejor
of the church, as being the most public
place in the community, The notice
stated thnt the Hudson's Buy Company
would not buy more than two bushels of
wheal from any one farmer, and that
payment for the same 'would be made
only in goods.' Tt was signe-d by the
agent, of the company. I remember
reading the signature, It was Donald
Smith. Today ho is known as Lord
OXE of the reasons formerly urged
against the existence of living
creatures in the abysses of the
ocean wns the supposed absence of oxygen there. It was deemed impossible
that any considerable quantity of oxygen could exist at greut depths. But discoveries of recent date have shown that
there is no lack of oxygen even at the
greatest depths. The explanation is
that the cold water of the polar regions,
enarged with tho oxygen from the atmosphere, creeps nlong the bottom toward the equator from both poles and
thus carries a supply of oxygen over the
whole vast floor of tho oceans. The
surface water moves toward the poles,
and so a great system of circulation exists. 'Were it not for this world circulation, one authority assuros us, it is altogether probable that the ocean would
in time become too foul to sustain animal life, at least iu its higher manifestations, nnd the sea, the mother of life,
would itself be dead.
rpHK well un the san. 1 spit at Nome in
X. the rush summer of 1900 was at
once a prize joke and a breeder of
tragedies. A hand ful of miners aud
prospectors discovered gold in the sea
beach in 1809 and many dug a small for
tune out of it. Adventurers, boomers,
aud blacklegs flocked iu immediately, as
they always do to a new camp, and
when the great rush began the next
Hpring were ready to collect money from
the incoming thousands by every known
device, and some not hitherto in use.
One of these last was this well, which
came to be known in derision as :* Widow Smith's well." It was the only
well on the spot and had been dug the
summer before by an honest miner who
had "gone out to Seattle ia the fall
and had failed to come back. The
gamblers and confidence men who had
taken charge Of the town and everything else they could lay hand on during the winter held this well ns a prize
asset, not to use, but to sell.
'i'he plan was simple. Of the incoming people a few were real miners, a few
would-be miners, but the great remainder had come with the linn con vie -
(inn that they were to make their for
tunes us trailers. "Traders have always-) made the fortunes in mining
camps," they argued, "therefore we
will tie traders." lt was easy tn sell
Widow Smith's well for a considerable
.sum, it being represented that the own
er hud but to sit ou tho curb and ladle
out water at a nickel a bucket, the de-
maud being good and the supply inexhaustible, t.very steamer brought a
new customer for tlie well. Among a
population daily shifting it was easy to
sell water to newcomers, and for a day
the. new owner would do u rushing busi
m.ys, then the business would become ex
citing rather than rushing, 'I'he more
experienced would refuse to pay fur
water from a well which they had used
as common property, and the more reck
less WOUlu defiantly take water by force.
The matter always culminated by the
third day iu the new owner being driven
from his supposed property and leaving
the well aud the sand-spit behind him
forever iu disgust at his ill luck. The
dispossession was always conducted
with perfect good humor if possible.
Once, though, there came a foolhardy
man who had a large pistol and did not
understand the ways of mining camp
people, lie left ou the first day for
the Nome hospital, his pistol hand disabled by some quick and accurate
marksmanship which no doubt prevented him from murdering innocent people.
Those of us who had stayed on at tlie
sand-spit from the first ami were fast
becoming old-timers in the short life
of such camp regretted this, but wo
hoped at least it would ond the purchasing if not the ottering uf the well
for sale, but. we underestimated the
greed of the confidence men as well as
the innocence of the tenderfoot. There
came a steamer the very next day and
with it a slim, boyish looking chap
■who bought the well, paying the largest
sum yet, or so the rumor had it.
He was a pleasant little fellow, aud
before he began business hi' strolled
about camp for a day talking with
everybody, lie seemed'to have a mar
t/elous faculty for getting a man's name,
his personal history; aud his confidence,
and keeping them. Everybody liked
him, antl though every one of the ten
rules for comfort in a mining camp is
"Mind your own business," there was
n't one of us old-timers but gave him
a hint of what he had coining to him.
3*'vidcntly he pieced these together an
Ue went along, for lie went back to his
teat before midnight very thoughtful,
but, us we all agreed, a verv polite and
likeable little chap. We didn't think
he would last out the next day, but
evening found him at the curb. He had
taken mopey frnm everybody who had
taken water, too.
''lie's so blamed polite.'' growled
one man who had sworn to pay no more
in direct tribute to the well thieves.
" What can you do to a man who knows
you by name the minute you show up
and talks to you as if you were an .old
friend? Why', no came from my State.
I can't kick over* nickel with a man
like that."
"Told him f hadn't any money for
water," said another, ''and what ilo
you think? He said take nil I wanted
to and welcome. 1 could pay when 1
got on my feet again. He knew me by
name; knew a man 1 used to know down
iu the States. Do you suppose 1 was
going to have him send out word thnt
■Jones was so badly broke he couldn't
■• ay a nickel for water? I made believe
it was a joke and paid up. Ouess I'll
nave to right along."
By the second day everybody was
"Polite Mr. William's" sworn friend
and the Widow Smith's welt was a bigger joke than ever, but this time the
laugh was with the new owner. No oue
iu camp thought of refusing to pay for
water. All wished to see Polite Mr.
"William win out in his ownership. For
the first time the camp had found an individual and cause on which to crystallize public sentiment and it adopted
both witll ardor of youth. .Men who
were making it well in the beach sands
with rocker and sluice were ushamod to
pay just a nickel, which is considered a
picayune coin, a bit of down-east stinginess, in most rush camps. Instead they
would drop a quarter of a dollar in his
hand ami say, "Never mind the change,
lad, two-bits is as small as wo have in a
good camp."
Polite Mr. William began to lose his
anxious look. Hut the men who had
sold him the well and/who were eager
to have him driven from it without
their direct interference were much
angered when this did not. take place.
Rmissurics whom they sent ovor from
town failed to stir up strife and they
were   forced  to  more open  tactics.
Meanwhile Polite Mr. William had
become the intimate friend uf every
man in camp and knew more or less
about everybody else iu the district.
Ho had served to introduce us all, in a
way, and a community spirit which had
not hitherto existed was fostered, and
did much good. Thus things went on
for ten days, when one morning when
the camp was most busy and there was
least liability that many would be on
hand to interfere, a stout man came
ovor from Nome and stopped as if
aghast when ho saw the well and Polite
l\Tr. William serving water from it.
"What! What!" he sai.l. "Who
baa dared to interfere with this property?"
'' Why, no one, Mr. Blum,'' said
Polite Mr. William in his most cordial
manner. Every one is patronizing me
and I am doing well. Glad to see you;
will you have a drink?'
The stout man looked a little dis
turbed at being addressed by name, and
refusing tlie proffered dipper of water
■went on: i(But this is au outrage!
This chum jumping, young man, must
be stopped. That we'll is the property
of the Widow Smith. How ilo vou com'e
to be selling the water?"
"Now I'm sorry vou aro disturbed
about this," said Mr. William. "1
have a bill of sale from some very nice
people over in Nome who 1 ani very sure
< -omc
lt is
would make no mistake about it.
around and sit oown, Mr. Blum
a warm day.''
Nothing could be more genial than
the tone of Mr. William, and no one
could be more cool than he. On the
other hand, the stout man did his part
well, going from indignation to a tine
rage at the injustice done to Widow
Smith, who, he declared, was not iu
town at present, but whose rights were
in the hands of all good citizens, and
there would be some who would not fail
to protect these rights with their very
lives. Indeed, he understood that Pistol
Hill bad been seen on the .sand-spit that
morning. Pistol Hill was a great friend
of the widow's and a dead shot. He
was a very quarrelsome man, too, when
he had beeu drinking, which was most
of the time. The young man would better look out! lie himself was deter
mined that no oue should defraud the
widow and he was going straight back
to town to invoke the law!
The indignant Mr. Ilium went, off hastily iu the direction of Nome, and it
was not long before the second actor iu
this farce-comedy appeared. This was
the veritable Pistol Hill himself, ami
the rumblings of his approach were
audible some time before lie came. The
newcomers withdrew from the tents
along his line of march and eyed him
with awe fnun a respectful distance.
lie was outfitted like a stage desperado
and he approached the wel IwtlOOpiug]
and shooting inlo the air with two very
large pistol*., but .Mr, William sat quietly by with his usual polite smile. A
shot splintered the slender board canopy
over the well, but, though he was pale,
he was seemingly unmoved.
Pistol Hill wavered a little as he drew
very near, lie was playing a game that
might well be dangerous iu a mining
camp, even though his intended victim
was but a pale young tenderfoot. Yet
the tenderfoot had made no move to
ward golf-defense. No doubt he was
frightened and needed but a final vigor
ous onslaught to make him turn and run,
never to come back to camp. With a
tremendous roar of "Mush, you claim
jumper! Mush for your life!" he waved Ins two revolvers ami lurched forward as if to butt the pale young man
clear off the sand spit.
It all happend like a transformation
scene at the play when the wicked demon vanishes under the compelling
magic of the good fairy. As Pistol Hill
lurched forward Mr. William suddenly
crouched, rose, and with the quick side
flip of a wrestler sent his opponent, pistols and all. headlong into Widow
Smith's  well.
It  was  afterward   rumurer

throughout the South Africau war not

"There were, ' he said, "quite a few
surrenders under the white Hag, but not
one of them was a Canadian; nor was
one Canadian guu captured.'' The
statement was received  with cheers.
*' Two little incidents occur to my

At the battle of LUHfontein, Col. Sor-

were falling back before a superior
force of liners. There were two guns
of the Ottawa Artillery. Two hundred
aud fifty mounted men were trying to
keep tne Boers back, guarding the line
of retreat. They saw thai.' their horses
were tireu and that they could not get
oil with the gun. The colonel turned to
Captain Cockburn and said: 'Cockburn,
take your squadron and deploy there.
Never let it be said that a Canadian
gun was taken.' Cockburn formed up
liis men, aud they went on fighting.
And they never stopped lighting until
the guns were got away.    (Cheers.)

Axle Grease
For Traction Engines, Wagons, Etc.
Mica Axle Grease
makes the wheel
as nearly friction-
less as possible
and reduces the
wear on axle and
box. It ends axle
troubles, saves
energy in the
horse, and when used on axles of traction engines economizes fuel and power.
Granite Harvester Oil
insures better work from the new machine
and lengthens the lite ot" the old. Where-
ever bearings are loose or boxes worn it
takes up the play and aits like a cushion.
Change.* ut weather do not affect it.
Standard Gas Engine Oil
is the only oil you need. It provides perfect lubrication under, high tentfifraiures without appreciable carbon deposits on rings or
cylinders, and is equally good for the external bearings.
Capitol Cylinder Oil
delivers more power, and makes lhe engine
run better and lunger with less wear and tear,
heeau.se its friction-reducing properties arc
exactly fitted to the requirements oi steam

^ Brief for the
Vou muy think every man who smokes wjiuts to quit and can't. The genevul
(pinion seems to be that using tobacco is a bad habit; not very bad, lmt su bar!
that men would not learn it if they wore beginning over, nnd hnd their present
knowledge of the weed.
Hut to thnt there is ti big opposition, and not nil men want tn quit. And
not wanting to quit, it is for them to make a defence; there are always arguments
lor the defence.   Here is one ottered by a Correspondent to the Chicago Tribune.
"You may say thut the world did without smoking fur a mighty long timr,
why not now? But you must admit that since tobacco wns Introduced to the
world it has witnessed the greatest things done by brain power.    Tobacco did it.
"Why, every conceivable invention is cither perfected now nr sn near it
that the inventive field is nearly used up and inventors are leaving the field and
retiring. The bruins responsible for oar present civilization are found mostly
in  the tobacco era.
" Kven the Ladies' Home Journal advises girls uot to marry a man who does
not use the weed in a .smoky form. That paper rightly contends that the noil-
user iw likely to get irritated after dinner, whereas a smoker would be quiet ami
behave himself, soothed by the balm of a fragrant  BUCK-EYE.
"To a girl in  love a  suutker is more desirable because lie writes
love letter, which is more efficient than stargazing."
P.S.~-Anci to every smoker the BUCK-EYE is desirable, because it represents the best ten cent
smoke in Canada.

" A   horrid
rash came ont all over my baby's 'ace and
spread until it had totally covered his scalp.
It was irritating and painful, and caused
the little one hoars of suffering. We tried
soaps and powders and salves, but he got
no better. He refused his food, got quite
thin and worn, and was reduced to a very
serious condition. I was advised to try
Zam-Buk, and did so. It was wonderful
how it seemed to cool and ease the child's
burning, painful skin. Zam-Buk from the
very commencement seemed to go right to
the spot, .and the pimples and sores and the
irritation grew less and less. Within a
few weeks try baby's skin waa healed
completely. He has now not a trace of
rash, or eruption, or ecxer.ia, or burning

Automobiles and the Cost
of Living
Arguments For and Against tlie Charge
That the Craze ior Autos is Causing the Stringency in the
Money  Market
'II UK automobile i.s now being blamed
J- for the high tost of living, and the
recent stringency on tne money
market. Aa a lmt weather subject of
newspaper discussion the question has
heen taken up eagerly by tin- news
papers of the republic, which rang.- up
inr or agaiust the auto. A number of
bankers iu the Western States have
agreed to refuse money to borrowers
who intend to um* it to buy motor cars,
•iml the newspapers are affirming or
denying that "automobile extravagance
has become a country-wide evil that |
demands drastic treatment." In Oklahoma the State Hankers' Association
believed th'* situation sufficiently serious to warrant the passing of this
resolution: ,
" Resolved, Thai tho bunking frateru
itv ut Oklahoma should use their power
and influence to curtail lhe tendency of
the people of thc State toward extravagance and speculation in real estate and
the prevalent habit of withdrawing the
funds thev sadly need as capital in their
business for investment in motor ears
.aid gasoline.
According to press despatches from
St. Louis, a prominent banking house
of that city recently sent a letter of

"There's a reason," according to the
New York world, for this cry of "auto
mobile extravagance" being raised by
bankers and Wall Sine! brokers. To
" A main trouble with the present
motor ear extravagance is that its affects arc directly felt, by Wall Street's
chief industry. Every purchase of a
$3,500 automobile represents the invest
ment of a sum sufficient to margin 150
shares of stock, and lhe aggregate of
such withdrawals of funds from 'legitimate trade" in stocks and bonds is
obviously immense. To say nothing of
the $30,000,000 alleged to bo invested in
automobiles in Kansas, the 108,000
automobile licenses issued at Albany of
themselves constitute the equivalent, at
a minimum estimate, of u $100,000,000
bond issue.
"No doubt in time the bulk of these
diverted funds will find their way I
to  Wall  Street."
The Other Side of the Story
Hunkers   huve   declared   war   on
automobile -bankers   of   the   Mas!

have   been   issued   quite   generally   to

is that motoring has become "an extra

In   discussing   the   many   good
ties of the toad Mr. Gray says:
Cutworms that destroy millions of
dollars' worth of wheat and rye stalks
are its favorite food,and after the cutworms come the lent caterpillars, the
weevil, the .grasshopper and the cricket.
The food capacity of our warty backed
friend is prodigious. In the stomach
of one ordinary sized toad there were
found twenty-seven thousand - legged
worms; iu another twenty-two gypsy
moth caterpillars; in another ninety
rosebugs—all taken within several
hours. It is estimated that one toad
will devour in thirty days 700 cutworms, 1,000 ants, 150 weevils, 110
ground beetles, and (J00 myriupods.
These are all harmful insects to vegetation, and nature seems to have
created in tho toad an appetite for
them rather than for the beneficial insects. The brown tail moth, one of the
greatest pests we have, is a special
tidbit, and is eaten in vast numbers,
so If you multiply the stomach capacity
I .' of one toad bv the stomach capacity of
w '10,000   other "toads  you   will   see   what
can and will bo accomplished if these
little creatures are properly bred and
protected. . s high as a shilling apiece
bas been paid by Knglish farmers for
full grown toads.
While we are about it is is as well
to mention that the little garter snakes
so common everywhere, which are ruth
lessly Killed ou sight merely because
they are snakes, are utterly harmless
and moll-meaning creatures. 'I'he old
instinet to kill, brought down with us
from the days ot' our simian ancestry,
makes us turn instinctively against
living things that are not pretty. .Even
the snakes deserve a chance to live.

THERE have been so many ship-
wroeks on the islands of the
Southern Ocean between thc Meridian of the Cape and Australia that
depots of food and clothing have beon
established on many of the more import-j
ant Islands. On Hog Island, Crozet j
Group, there is a hut near thc landing
place where t..e French war vessel La
Meurthe left a ton of preserved beef,
half a ton of biscuit, three-quarters of a
hundred-weight of sardines in oil,
twenty blankets, fifteen pairs of shoes
and trousers, all carefully packed, together wilh two spears, two hatchets,
and some cooking utensils." At Possession Island and many other islands there
are similar depots, and nearer New Zealand there are several such sanctuaries
for castaways. Similar depots have
also been established on Vancouver Island at Cape Ileale Lighthouse and Car-
manal Lighthouse. Both England and
Prance, indeed, have vied with one another in recent years in alleviating the
misfortunes of castaways on the desolate islands of the Southern Ocean and
other lonely seas.
A Spanish Professor Says that Spain's

PAIN* must rescue Latin America

States, declares Prof. Vinconte
Gay, of tho ancient University of Val-
ladolid, in the Spana Modernn of Madrid, to which he contributes a second
article on South America. Ho bids the
Spanish laborers to turn their eyes to
the broad, rich acres of South America,
instead of flocking foolishly to thc
United States, lured by the Vaukee
dollar. "Wo should insist upon the
common blood of Spain and South America," he says, "and encourage trade
and intercourse." The one obstacle
to closer relationship between Spain and
her former colonies is the United States
which is always interfering in the internal affairs of the Latin Republics,
although, to be sure, as the professor
admits, the Republics bring this intervention upon themselves by their own
misdoings. He quotes the Chiapas y
Mexico as remarking that "it may be
that the Northern Republic abuses its
power," and sometimes intervenes for
selfish purpose ,   \ i I:

Evidently it hau beeu the lever breaking   on    which   had   mad*'   the   metallic

the little clock wildly, but it steadily

grabbed a shoe with tlie mad thought
of breaking the clock to pieces, but he
quickly realized that the assault would
only increase the noise emanating from
his room. 1 hrusting Ins fingers desperately o\cr ami aruuud the clock, he
found a small hole where the lever

which stopped  the alarm.
"Thank  heaven,"  Motlit   breathed.
It was 2,30 by the face of the clock.
Moifil, staring at it in growing consternation, figured that he would have
to sit there holding his finger on the
spring a number of hour.s. The prospect was not pleusant. Possibly a
match would do as well as his finger—
but the room was lighted by electricity!
Still tightly clutching the'clock, which
clucked threateningly inside it whenever he relaxed iu tho least the pressure of his finger, Moflit hunted up his
vest. The matches he fouud therein
were the small, safety kind, which were
useless for his purpose.
Ile found a buttonhook on tho dresser
and the clock let out a shrill peal as
he withdrew* his linger and inserted thc |
bit of metal,-which bobbed about a bit
and then fell out with a clang, letting
the alarm ring forth in all us glory.
Thereupon he fell upon the clock again
ami pul his linger upon the spring. He
realized Ihat he was terribly, horribly
He thrust the clock under his pillow
with a quick jump and tried sleeping
on it, but it sounded like a huge bumble

rustic of dawn. Suddenly it occurred
to hiin to romove thc extra pillow ease,
throttle the clock in its lohls, thrust the
bundle into his suitcase, and shut the
suitcase in  tho closet.
Having thus disposed of the clock,
Motlit went back to bed. At auy rate,
lie had protected the slumbers of Irene's
parents, which was the main thing.
Jle never could have faced them if he
had ruthlessly disturbed them in tin1

WHKX Pltcaim Island was discovered in 1707 it was uninhabited,
but twenty-two years later nine
mutineers from the Bounty, reinforced
by four men and eleven women of Ota-

few men who had been faithful to him
during the mutiny, found their way iu

but when Sir Thomas Staires, who was j

whether governmental (army, navy,

whether' industrial or commercial,
proves on investigation to bo Inefficient,
often disgracefully so, the efficiency of
the. output of men of militia age of the
country as a whole being not more than
n per cent., the efficiency of use of ma
terials being not more than 60 per cent.,
the efficiency of equipment, facilities,
averaging not 30 per cent. These in
efficiency statements can be verified
from the fads, by any competent ex
pert, as readily as an assayer can dupli
cate the assay of an ore sample.
Our material resources are unsurpass
ed, our workers are intelligent, ambitious, versatile; our equipment, from
farm lands to office buildings, from
typewriters up to Mallet compounds and
down again to telephones, is lavish; yet
it is all depreciated by nn equally stupendous inefficiency. Tho principles of
efficiency are simple, are plain, are ele
mentary; they have been accepted and
practiced empirically for a few million
years since life began on our planet;-yet
in modern America, we flounder in our
productive operations, as hopelessly put
back in the running as the hook warm
victim of the South.
What is this insidious disease that
wastes our resources of materials, of
human potentiality, of equipment—that
prevents the application of efficiency
principles even as the existence of the
hook worm prevents the application of
principles of human well-being?
The industrial hook work disease is
defective organization,
Au air compressor, forcing hot and
squealing air, and a vacuum pump softly
coaxing cooling air, are oue aud the
same machine working on the same
cydo in opposite directions. With n
very few simple changes the compressor
can be changed into the vacuum pump.
So with a very few small changes a disastrous form of organization can he
turned into a benefit form.
In primtivo times, with that fatuity
and perversity which accountably char
aeteri/.es so much that is human, we
turn to the left wheu we ought to have
turned fo the right. Having two forms
of organization to choose from—only
two, the destructively offensive and
the constructively defensive—we choose
for our industrial organization the de
structively offensive type, and it does
not work out, never can and never will;
while we ought to have chosen the con
structively defensive type of organize
tion, alone suited to productive up
The two types of orgunziation are as
<dd as life, are therefore far older than
humanity, ami we have had to accept
them as part of our inheritance just
as we accept the necessity of assimila
(ion, of elimination, of reproducing, of
breathing. Hut there is no more reason
in adhering industrially to the destruc
tive type of organization, since we have
learned that the other is better, th'an
there is iu adhering to phek teams and
ox carls after the railroad and automo
bile have been perfected.
To bring out clearly tlie radical dif
ferences between the two types of or
gaaization, in spirit, ia effectiveness,
and in methods, we select two primitive
examples, one a plant and the other an
animal. The plant trusts to the generous, often enthusiastic co-operation of
forces outside of itself and it therefore
draws strength of w'ide and unlimited
range. The mammal trusts to the occasional, often grudging, co-operation of
powers identical in kind with its own,
therefore of limited scope. The path
finder through primeval forest is impressed with lhe luxuriant wealth and
profusion of plant life—trees, at their
best, 400 feet high: i*-. impressed with
the comparative paucity, pettiness,
transltoriness of animal life, whose largest jungle representative is the elephant,
twelve feet high and living at most a
few hundred years. Plants trust all
nature and draw help from everywhere;
animals trust none but their kind and
grow through destruction. Kven that
type of all that is silly and innocent,
the sheep, will destroy in a few years a
millennial   pasture  range.
The wild rose bush exemplifies the
defensive, upbuilding type, of organiz
ation. The rose steins are covered with
sharp thorns so that the delicate flowers mny not be plucked and destroyed
by wanton creatures wdio might just as
well be browsing on grass or leaves,
but the color and perfume of the blossoms attract the bees, beetles, butterflies, and moths who in return for an
efiieiency reward, the honey, cross-fertilize the plunts, The petals fade and
drop, the seed receptacle, au inconspicuous green, swells and grows. When ripe,
the leaves that hid it fall away; it appears red, a tempting rose-apple to bird
that* plucks it, to mammal that finds it
dropped, but the cradle of the seeds is
so protected that the rose babies escape
to grow and flourish where they fall.
The rose relies on defensive up-building
organization, calling on water, nir,
warmth and light, earth, insects, birds
and mammals, each taking a part, all
helping the rose to dot tho western
Roosevelt gives us the other picture
when he describes the African baboons
who are organized for offense, for destruction:
"The baboons were very numerous
around this camp, living both among
the rocks and in the tree tops. They
are hideous creatures. They ravage the
crops und tear open new-born lambs to
get at the milk inside them; and where
lhe natives are timid and unable to
harm them they become wantonly savage nnd aggressive ami attack ami even
kill women and children. In Uganda,
Ounninghame bad once been asked by
a native chief to come to his village
and shoot the baboons, as they had just
killed two women, badly bitten several
children, and caused such a reign of terror that the village would be abandoned
if they were not killed or intimidated,
lie himself saw the torn nnd mutilated
bodies of thc dead women; and he stayed in the village a week, shooting so
many baboons that the remainder were
quite cowed.
Baboons do not act alone, but in bands
with leaders, with sentinels posted. Baboons, wolves, wild dogs, and primitive
man nre thoroughly organized for offence and destruction. Tt is because
the object i.s ofTenoc and destruction
that evil characteristics are most prom
inent—arbitrariness, irresponsible exercise of jiower, harshness, cruelty, with
anarchy all along the line.
Some strong male, differing not in
kind but merely in degree from his fel
lows, has fought his way to the top,
is given allegiance, based partly ou
fear, partly on self-interest. He dele
gates power, or each lower rank of
followers usurp power, and tbls results
in anarchy ail along the line.

in "The Cur" this weok, makes
some interesting remarks on thc
necessity of protecting ueroplanists
from the effects of a fall, and puts
forward the novel suggestion that they
should  wear air-inflated suits.
After commenting on the tragic death
uf the Hon. ('. i>. Uolls. he proceeds to
set out his plan iu detail, illustrating
it   with   several   pon-uiul ink   drawings.
"i suggest," writes Mr. Kipling, "a
helmet of rubber inflated on tin- crown
of the head and around lhe back and
over the collar bones-I he whole need
not be nine,-, heavier than a wicker-
work singlestick mask. What you want
is thc protection of thc neck against a
backward or forward wrench. The
height of the padding on the shoulders
ought to cushion off the worst of the
sideways wrench aud I lie rubber, being moderately thick, acts as slight
protection against bits of broken stays
and things.
".But the main thing would be to give
the spiual cord a chance not to be
snapped, and to protect the dome of the
head from fracture, Vou would have
to make fhe rolls under the chin pretty
thick, so that tne head could be driven
down on to them witliout tDO much
"Hack and pelvis protectors are dif
ferent propositions, and I doubt if men
would care to wear them, aud I do not
think mucii of Spanish picadors' boots
for protecting the bones of the legs.
"But it looks to me.'' concludes Mr.
ipliug, "as if the head, neck, ami
shoulder bones, being vital, could be
given sonje sort of prof eet inn, if only
for that fraction of a second which
turns an irretrievable smash into nothing worse than a horrid jar. Wltat do
the experts say?''
Breaded Chicken
Cut a small spring chicken, after it
has been*cleaned and drawn, into four
pieces; dust with salt and pepper and
dip them iu a beaten egg, to which you
have added a tablespoon ful of water,
and dust thoroughly witll fresh bread
crumbs, which must .not be browned.
Place the pieces in a baking pan, bone
side down, and run into a quick oven
until a golden brown. This will take
about forty minutes. People who have
been accustomed to fried chicken will
think this very nice. Dish neatly and
serve with cream sauce.
For supper, serve with them either
corn bread or milk biscuit. Por lunch,
green peas, nicely cooked and daintily
THERE are already between 800,000
and 900,000 people actually receiving old-age pensions in Great Britain. Pensions aro now to be extended
to paupers, and on January 1st there
wil] bo about 240,000 aged paupers
walking to the post office for their five
shillings a week in addition to the
eight hundred thousand odd receiving
aid now. Tiie total of Britain's old
age pension bill will thus be in the
neighborhood   of  $55,000,000  a  year.
D'JGOHTS are usually associated with
bygone days, but they still figure
iu .Maryland navigation. A few
are even being made today. This dug
out is the Chesapeake canoe of the East
era Shore oystermen. tt is made by
placing three pine logs side by side aud
fastening them together with wooden
pins. Then thc inside is dug out with
an adze and the outside similarly shaped.. Thc result is a non sinkable craft,
with bow and stern alike, that is rigged
with two sails and sometimes a "jig
ger" as well. From these boats the
oysters are taken up with tongs. When
the oyster season is over these canoes
are painted and aquatic race are indulged in by the oystermen.

Two years ago a telephone girl at the
Hagcn exchange (Germany) was struck

accident has been suffering from a lingering illness, died recently, all efforts
to cure hor of the effects of the shock
proving futile.

MR. JOSEP.U BODGECftf, slouchiiig
along iu his usual elegaut fashiou,
felt a Hand fall ou his sl.uuleier,
and swung round with a look of apprehension on Lis face.
"Oh, it's you, is it!" he exclaimed
augrilv, as his eve met that of Mr. William bode]. -'What the doose d'yer
wanter come that sort o' game fort 1
thought it was a cop! "
"I 'adn't got wind enough to cull out
to you," answered Mr. Dodd, whose
quick and labored breathing bore out
the statement. "I've been ehasine- vou
for pretty nigh the 'ole length of the
yc eet.''
V" Wheat fori" growled Mr. Budgen,
in whose bosom there lurked an instinctive dislike to being chased.
"I'll tell you in a minute," pauted
Mr. Dodd, "when 1—when—when 1 get
my breath back.
He took Mr. Budgen by the arm, uud
led him onward.
The two walked side by side iu silence
for a few moments, and "then, drawing a
deep inspiration an.l thumping himself
on thc chest, Mr. Dodd spoke again.
" 'Eard about Dick (Jutes?" he inquired.
"No," answered Mr. Dudgen surlily.
"Beeu pinched, 'as 'el"
"Not. much!" sai.l Mr. Dodd, with a
"Como into a fortune, then.'" sneered Mr. Budgen,
"You've 'it it," saiel Mr. Dodd impressively.
Mr. Budgou, coining to a sudden halt,
stared at his companion contemptuously
for several seconds,
"Tommy-rot!" l.e exclaimed at last,
,.   d walked on again.
X',' 'Taint   nothing   of   the  sort!"   recited   Mr.   Dodd   indignantly,     "it's
gospel truth.''
Mr. Budgen stopped again, and treated his friend with another stare, one in
which scorn wus giving way to a rising
"What's the little joite?" he Said,
with the ail- of a man who, while open
to conviction, is still on his guard
against the institution known as a
'' sell.''
Mr. Dodd glanced up and down the
■street, as if to lend a note of mystery
to the co.niuunie-ation which l.e wus
about to make.
"Dick Oat.es'B cousin, Ebenezcr," l.e
"Didn't know he'd got a cousin
Ebenezer,"  remarked Mr.  Budgen.
" 'E didn't know 'isself till three
days ago," said Mr. Dodd impatiently.
"Not till the lawyer come along,
and ''
"If 1 was Dick I wouldn't 'ave no
truck with lawyers! " declared Mr. Budgen, very emphatically.
"Not if they brought you a couple
of 'undred quidf" inquired Mr. Dodd,
with a leer.
Mr. Budgen's bloodshot eyes grew
round and protuberant.
"You don't mean to say " he began.
"Yes, 1 do," said Mr. Dodd, nodding
his head violently. "Two 'undred quid
was the figure; and 'e's got every
pennv of it.    'Is cousin died intestit—"
"Died wot?" exclaimed Mr. Budgen.
"Intestit,"- repeated Mr. Dodd.
" 'Adn't made no will, y' know; uud
Dick was 'is only relation."
Mr. Budgen, with his eyes fixed on a
distant public-house, gave himself up to
the rapture of imagination I'or the space
of several seconds.
Then: "Two—undred—quid!" l.e
said, very slowly and impressively.
"We ougl.ter get some of it," said
Mr. Dodd.
"We oughter get the lot!*' corrected
Mr. Budgen fiercely.
"I spoke about  it," said Mr. Dodd,
an air of gentle melancholy spreading
itself over his expressive features,
offered tee go shares.   'Look 'ere, Dick,'
I ses: 'you nnd me ought ' "
"Wot about mel" demanded Mr.
Budgen, with some heat.
"Yes. of course," said Mr. Dodd
hastily. " 'You anel me and .Toe Budgen,'! ses, 'ought, by rights, to be all
doing time together.' ''
"Wot " began Mr. Budgen fierce-
"I said that to remind in. as we was
all in the same boat," went ou Mr
Dodd quickly. " 'A feller as comes
into money and then won't shale it
with "is pills,' I ses. 'deserves to 'ave
the gaff blown on   'im!' "
"So 'e does!" interjected Mr. Bud
-, J ii.
■ " 'Ho. does he?' 'e ses," continued
yMr. Dodd. " 'All rio-lit,' 'c ses, 'you

"Then V won't part," said Mr. Budgen gloomily.
"Not a 'upenny." sai.l Mr. Dod.l,
shaking his head sadly. "The only
thing now," he added, "is to get it out
of 'im in some otner way. I thought
p'r'aps you'd be able to suggest something."
Mr. Budgen reflected for n while,
tilting his cap on one side and scratching his head, ns if to stimulate his imagination,
"I don't quite see 'ow it could bo
done," he said presently. "Where does
'e keep the stuff?"
" 'E keeps it st, 'ome," answered
Mr. Dodd, "but it ain't no use trying
to get it by breaking in. 'E's too well
■'*. in them' sort of tricks 'isself."
t"That's what 1 was thinking,"
hgreed Mr. Budge*... with an air of resentment.
"Ain't there no way you could gammon 'im into letting go of it?" inquired Mr. Dodd, looking beseechingly at
his comrade.
""""T "can't think o' none," answered
Mr. Budgen, after cogitating for a moment.   "Ts 'o spending it pretty free?"
"No," admitted Mr. Dodd. " *e
ain''t. That's the rum part of it. 'E
goes to the pub. same as usual, but 'e
onlv drinks bottled beer in the private
bar. 'E talks about turning respect
able, .and buying n greengrocery business, and all that sort of blooming rot!"
Mr. Budgen's gaze became suddenly
riveted again on the public-house in
the distance.
" 'Ow 'ud It be," he said, very slowly and pensively, "if I was tn offer to
go partners with 'im in the greengrocery business?"
"You don't suppose,'e'd take it on,
do you?" began Mr. Doelel, in a voice
full  of  contempt.
"You wait," said Mr. Budgen oracularly. "Just you wait till you've 'card
all I've got to say."
He took his pipe and a screw of tobacco out of his pocket, loaded in
leisurely nnd thoughtful fashion, and lit
up, Mr. Dodd watching him with ill-
concealed impatience.
"If I was to say," be continued, putting vigorously—"if i was to say to
'in.''—puff—'' look 'ere, Dick Oates''
—puff—"I want you to take me into
partnership, "e 'el "—puff	
" 'E'd tell you to go to blazes!"
stated Mr. Deeeld, with emphasis,
"■lust so," agreed -Mr. Budgen, nodding sagely, ". e would. But if 1 was
to say: 'Look 'ere, Dick Oates, you've
got two 'sudreel quid, and I've got
three 'undred. Let's put it all together,
and do the thing  'andsonie' "
"But you ain't got nothing of the
sort!"  broke  i.t  Mr.  Dodd.
" 'Ow do you know 1 'aven't.'" inquired Mr. Budgen, with asperity.
"Dick Oates ain't the* only ...au as 'as
cousins what die and leave 'im money,
is  'e ? "
He allowed his features to expand
iuto a broad grin for the space of two
seconds, and then contracted then, again
into their usual expression of surliness.
Mr, Dodd, whose habits of life  were
conducive  to  quickness  of   wit,  sinil
an.l winked.
".lust so,
"But 'owMl that 'elp you?" Inquire.
Mr. Dodd, after a short period of re

"There is thut difficulty," admitted
Mr. Budgen, rasping a scrubby chin
with a dirty linger and thumb. "It'll

dou't quite see the wuy to do it, yet.
I know a bloke in the greengrocery line,
as 'ud be quite willing to talk about

into 'is 'cad that 'e'd 'ave no dealings

with great heartiness.

Dodd, witl. an air of dob-fulness whicli
carried conviction.
-'Well/ as it 'appens, I've got a
quid," said Mr. Budgen, "which is fortunate. Lady's 'andbng this afternoon," he explained, in response to the
other's look of inquiry.
He set off again, Mr. Dodd, shorter of
leg, trotting to keep lip with him.
"We ought.*.- look excited when we
go in,*' Mr. Budgen remarked, quickening his pace.
".lust what I was thinking," declared Mr. Dodd.
"An.l we mustn't take too much
notice of Dicky at first," continued Mr.
Budgen, "My lotl! bigger'n 'is, yon
know. Look 'ere! Suppose we do a
sprint. It'll make us look as if something   'ad been  stirring us up."
Mr. Dod.l acquiescing, the pair broke
into a run, arriving outside the Spotted
Cow in an appropriate state of heat and
"In with you," said Mr. Budgen,
clapping his companion ou the shoulder.
"And try ami do a laugh," he whispered, pushing Mr. Dodd forward.
"Ha, ha, ha!" guffawed that gentleman, bufsting into the private bar with
Mr. Budgen close em his heels. -'That
was a gooel  'un. Joe!"
"So I told 'im," said Mr, Budgen
genially, as he urged Mr. Dodd towards
the counter. " -Spend it all in a week,

I can make three 'undred of the* best go

The bitter remark wns addressed to
Mr. Oates, who was sitting on a stool
ainl resting his elbows on the bar.
" 'Ow's yourself?" was the reply,
given with the nod of one whose wealth
entitles him to be rude to others.
"What're you going to 'ave. Bill?"
asked Mr. Budgen. without troubling
himself to reply to the plutocrat's inquiry.
-'I'll 'ave a whisky," answered Mr.
"And soda?" said Mr. Budgen.
"Two whiskies-and-sodas, [.lease, miss;
nuel two sixpenny cigars. You going
to'join us. Dick?"
"I'll 'ave another bottle of beer,"
replied Mr. Oates, draining the contents
of his glass.
"And a cigar?" suggested Mr. Budgen.
"Don't mind if T do," assented Mr.
Oates, looking curiously at the sovereign
which Mr. Budgen had slapped down mi
the bar. "You seem to he flush tonight," he added.
"Flush!" echoed Mr. Budgen, laughing .llo.id, anil giving Mr. Dodd a theatrical dig with his elbow, "Flush! Oh,
yes, T am a bit that way."
"Beet, 'civiug some money left yon?"
queried Mr. Oates satirically,

picking up lhe change which the bar
mnid had placed before him. and dropping it carelessly into his pocket,
"The cloose you 'ave!" said Mr.
Oates, growing palpably Interested.
" 'Ow much?"
"Only a .....tter of three 'undred
quid." replied Mr. Budgen, after biting
off the end of his cigar.
"(lanunon!" commented Mr. Oates,
with nn nil- of suspicion. "Whcit're

than my little lot!"'
"Your little lot!" said Mr. Budgen,
artfully throwing the suspicion of
plagiarism upon the other man. "Oh.
give us a chance, Dicky! Can't a feller

to make out as you've 'ad one, too."
"But I 'ave! " cried Mr. Oates hotly.

"No," said Mr. Oates. "No; I don't

The question was addressed to Mrs,
Outes, who, framed in the doorway, was
staring ut her spouse in blank amazement.
"Ain't you been 'aving no fit, Dick?*'
inquired the lady hoarsely, coming slowly towards him.
"Fit!" exclaimed Mr. Oates, returning her stare with interest. "Me! Fit!
What d 'yer mean! "
"The   young   man "  began   Mrs.
Oates, and then stopped to moisten her
lips witli her tongue.
"Young man!" shouted Mr. Oates,
leaping down from his stool and seizing

bank, whicli lend radium at the rate of
two elollars per milligram per day.
The difficulty will be to get the radium. Until the present time the hospitals using it have received it from
Mme. Curie. 'Hie principal source of
radium as known today is the pitchblende of the Joachim Thai mine in Bohemia. Austria has the monopoly of
this supply. But pitchblende has been
discovered near C.uardo, in Portugal,
and it is known to be present in small
quantities in two mines in Cornwall.
The English bunk is making search for
it elsewhere.
Radium is furnished to the bank borrowers, under bonds, in little tubes, each
tube containing a milligram of th.
precious substance.

Marvellous Feats Performed by
the Dead
WHEN" King George IV. died, eighty-
years ago, the London Tifties
published a scathing article
which people of today will read with
surprise, so greatly does it differ from
anything the generation of today would
be likely to see in a newspaper:
"The truth is," wrote thc Times,
"that there never was an individual
less regretted by his fellow-creatures
than this deceased King. What eye
has wept for him! What heart has
heaved one throb of unmercenary sorrow? Was there at auy time a gorge
ous pageant on the stage more completely forgotten than he has beeu, even
from the day on which the heralds proclaimed his successor? Has not -hat
successor gained more upon the English
tastes and prepossessions of his subjects
by the blunt and unaffected—even
should it be the grotesque cordiality—
cordiality of his demeanor, within the
few short weeks than George IV.—that
leviathan of the haut ton—ever did
during the sixty-eight years of his existence?
"If George IV. ever had a friend—a
devoted friend—in auy rank of life, we
protest that the name of him or hor has
not yet reached us. An inverterate
voluptuary, especially if he be an artificial person, is of all known beings tlie
most selfish. Selfishness is the true
repellant of human sympathy. Selfishness feels no attachment, and invites
none: it is the charnelhouse of the
affections. Nothing more remains to be
said or done about George IV., but to
pay—as we must—for his profusion;
and to turn his bad example to some
account by tying up tlie hanels of those
who come after hiin in what concerns
the public money."

formerly known as the Grosvenor estate, it embraces vast tracts in the
west and southwest.

Liko many nt hor true incidents, the
stury i- more weird than any fiction.
Tin* engineer was at uis post on his side
of the cab, hi.- head out of the window,
his hand on the throttle. Tho fireman
was attending tu his duties, tossing coal
iuto the furnace, and now and then giv

twice he spoke tu the engineer and got
not answer, but ho supposed hi- mate
wus nut in a talkative mood.
As the t rain approached a station
where it was wont tu stop tho fireman
gave a lung blast nn the whistle, the
signal that a halt was tu In- made. Hut
the train sped un with unsla eke nod
speed. \ut until it had gone past the
station like a flash did the fireman's
suspicions   become   aroused.
"What's the matter, Bill?'1 he ask
ed. -'Wo ought tu have stopped
There was uu response, and tho now
frightened fireman placed his hand on
thi' engineer's shoulder. Ho withdrew
it with a yell when he found tho man's
body stiff in death. With a pro-em-.■
of mind bum ut' a life nf danger, the
fireman quickly reversed the lever ami
brought  tho train  tn a  -tup.

Many sportsmen will recall the part
which the proprietor of a London gambling house was made tu play aftor
death. The man's name wa-* Crock-
ford, ami he owned many race horses.
The day before the Derby one of Crock-
ford's iiorses was poisoned, and the mis
fortune brought un an attack uf apo
plow which caused hi-* death late that
night. Many of his friend- had staked
large sums un Cruckford's horses, which
wero disqualified by the death uf the
owner. Only a few knew of his sudden
death, however, and these were sworn
to secrecy.
On the day uf the rare Cmckfurd's
body wTas made to look as lifelike as
possible and was placed in a chair at an
upper window of his home, partly ion
coaled by the laco curtains. Peoplo gn
ing to the Derby and passing the house
saw the figure at the window and el i
ed him. \t was said that Crockford was
not well and was unable tu attend the
race. Ilis horSOS wnii, nnd the next day
it was aunounced that Crockford was
dead. It was several year--, however,
before the true facts leaked nut.

THK interest which hns heen aroused
iu London by Mr. 11. B. Irving*s
masterly impersonation of the
dual role of the high minded Dr. Jekyll
and hi- othei self, the villainous Mr.
Hyde, led t.. the asking a West end specialist in diseases of the brain whether
there were any such cases of dual per
sunnlity in real life.
"Quite a number." he promptly re
plied; "although I have never hoard of
such striking contrasts as those of \^i.
Jekyll nnd Mr. Hyde.    Oa several  a
sious, however, I hav.* eome into cun
tact with men who, with a reputation
for kindness and geniality, would do the

fanner whom I knew led him to treat
dugs ami cats with abominable cruelty,
lie took fiendish delight in torturing
and starving them, uud yet this same
man was exceedinly popujur with everybody in hi- neighborhood ami continually doing acts of kindness towards the
children of the village near which In-
lived. He candidly confessed to mo
that the sight of a cat or dog seemed
tu arouse every savage instinct in him,
ami ho came tu me to see if I could
do anything fur him. I could only suggest that he should rigidly exclude cuts
and dogs from his homo'. This. I believe, he ha- done.
"Another case was that of a man
who had periodical fits of moroseness,
and absolutely declined to speak to his
wife or childien for days together wheu
the attacks seized him; and yet, when
they had pn-ssed away, he was tho best
of husbands ami father-, ami was continually expressing hi- sorrow tu his
wife and children tor the pain he cans
ed them. They rei-ogni/.ed, however,
that ho wa- the victim of some psyscho
logical trick which medical science
could not fathom, readily forgave him,
uml endeavored to take no notice of his
attacks. But they grow worse, and at
lust 1 advised him to go away when
ever he felt them coming on, and stop
until the attack wus over. He adopted
this plan, and 1 hud a letter from him
a short time ago in which he said thut
he thought ho wus getting much better.
"It is the case of a woman, however,
thnt one finds some extraordinary cases
of dual personality. One of the most
remarkable cases I have ever met with
wns that of a young woman who had a
very fine voice. Her parents were anxious to have it cultivated, and placed
their daughter under the tuition of a
vocal instructor, who promised u brilliant future for the embryo singer. Hut
the young woman snid she could nut
sing a note, did not want to sing, anyway, and distracted her parents and in
struct or with her fits of melancholy
and stubbornness, in which she refused
to tuke tho slightest interest in her
vocation, nnd vet she could siug like
a lark.
"Personally I believe that a good
muny cases of kleptomania ure due to
a dual personality which forces u wo
man to steal against her will. Then,

To Keep Price of Lumber Up.
That it will be necessary for
the production of the mountain
lumber mills to be considerably
curtailed for the remaining
months of 1910 that the existing
prices will be maintained and
that drastic measures may be
taken to meet the competition
from the American lumbermen
who are enabled, owing to the
unprotected Canadian market,
to dump common lumber in tho
prairie provinces, were tho decisions of greatest importance
reached at tho convention of
tlid Mountain Lumbermen
Manufacturers' Association held
in Nelson last Friday.
The meeting was one of the
most largely attended overbold
in the city and most of the
groat, lumber manufacturing
companies wero represented.
Tho demand has suffered a
serious set back during the past
sixty days and whilo the British Columbia mountain mills
enjoyed a good business during
the first six months of tho year,
tho crop scarcity in th
was followed by a very marked
decrease in the demand for tho
product. Tho output for the
rest of 1910 will full considerably short of the milling capacity of tho mountain mills.
The question of tho kick ..I'

A prominent member said
Canadian prairie provinces are
made the dumping ground for
the surplus lumber from the
United States, while tho manufacturers are now considering
a scheme for meeting this condition which may involve a
drastic departure from the established practice of wholesalers.
It i.s well known that British
Columbia is probably the best
customer that Alberta has for
many of her products and by
the profits of the lumber industry in this province the people
of the prairie provinces gain
far greater advantages than
any which may accrue to them
through having lumber on tne
free list.
