- Will Build Next Spring.
Construction work on the
southeast Kootenay railway
running over a distance of 50
miles from McGillivray to the!
international boundary will
commence next spring, according to an announcement of
Thomas Davis, the president,
who is at present in Victoria.
The road will open up one of
the richest coal mining areas in
the province. Mr. Davis, who
has just returned from a trip
through the Flathead district,
states that considerable development work is in progress at
the different coal properties
there. From the Calder Creek
measures to the boundary, a
distance of eight miles, a wagon
road has been built for the
bringing in of supplies and construction material. Twelve
coal mining properties in all
are carrying on development
work, the principal of these,
that known as camp Davis, being controlled by the Southeast
Kootenay railway company.
Mr. Davis states that in addition
to the coal areas the new railroad will open up rich agricultural territory lying in the Flathead valley.

Shot His Wife to End Her Agony.
New York, Sept. 17.—James
McDowell, prospector and miner, who killed his wife to end
her sufferings in the wilds of
the Canadian northwest, is at
the home of friends at 2774
Bainbridge avenue today. He
is a nervous and physical wreck.
McDowell complied with the
plea of his mortally injured
wife to end her agony. He was
examined by a jury. "My wife
was Fanny Crawford, a native
of the province of Alberta," he
said. "I had a rich claim near
Castle mountain, in the British
Columbia extension of the Cascade range and soon after we
decided to visit it. The mule
on which my wife was riding
was stung by a hornet, kicked
and plunged over a precipice,
carrying my wife with him.
My wife was crushed to a shapeless mass and begged me to end
her agony.   I then shot her."

Building of C. P. R. Branch Lines.
The twenty ninth annual re
port of the C. P. R. which i-
just issued and which covers
the year closing on June 30th
last, contains several items ol'
interest. The president in biannual address which will be
presented at the annual general meeting of the shareholders
on October oth, says that the
shareholders will be asked to
authorize tiie issue and sale of
four per cent consolidate debenture stock to provide for the
construction of the following,
among other branch lines:
Woyburn-Lethbrige branch,
50 miles and Lethbridge-Alder-
syde branch, 58 miles.
The shareholders will also be
asked to approve an agreement
made with the Kootenay Central railway company, for the
building and leasing to the C.
P. R. for 999 years of a line
from Galloway on the Crow's
Nest line to Colder, on the main
line. The railway to be built in
sections of from -10 to 50 miles
as the C. P. R.  shall designate.
In the financial statement accompanying the report, the expenditure on the C. P. R. during
the year are given as follows:
Additional   sidings,    buildings
stations and yards.$134,002.24
Permanent   bridges   and    improvement of lines.    62,563.60

Walt Mason is Not Dead.
When a false rumor of Mark
Twain's death was cabled from
Europe some ten years ago, and
anxious inquiries as to its truth
were flashed across, the great
humorist cabled in reply that
the news of his death was
"greatly exaggerated." Admirers of the writings of Wall
Mason will be glad to know
that in like manner the news
of bis death, which came with
such a shock a few days ago.
was unfounded.
The news dispatch which was
printed all over the continent
announcing the death of John
Scanlan, a cartoonist, in Philadelphia stated that he wrote
under the pen name 'Wall
Mason,' It now appears that
on soveral occasions he had
written to his sister, several
postal cards signed 'Walt Mason,' the name of a well known
writer of verse. She thought
'Walt Mason's' productions
were her brother's, and this
fact led the police to believe for
a time that Scanlan was the
well known writer.
Walt Mason is in Emporia.
Kan. His admirers whose
name are legion, will expect
something from his pen about
this false story of his having
crossed the great divide.
Welsh Miners May Strike.

their action today in voting in
favor of a strike of 20(1.(100
Welsh coal miners, the delegates to the miners' conference

not become operative unless the
miners themselves support the
proposal, but there is little
doubt that they will vole overwhelmingly to support tin- delegates and that tin! strike will

Some few years ago a ship load of
Pennsylvania steel and American, workers landed at (.'ape Town and eommene-
ed ut Johannesburg the erection of the
first modem steel fpame structure in
South   Africa.
The work started ut the beginning of
the hot season, and when, after six
mouths, the residents of the city returned from their mountain resorts they
found a completed building awaiting
them, and at lirst refused to believe
their eves. A smaller building, just

The story uf the express-built sky

and short-cut processes and with a
gigantic remorseless rush turn out a
product whether men get in the way or

sky-scraper is built iu multitudinous
sections—-that i-. to .say, columns, beams,

A complete story could be told of the
works ut Pittsburg: of how the big
machines start rolling, rivet ting, cutting, punching—the processes ure many
and mighty—almost the moment the
blue prints arrive: of how even while
the work is ia progress some master
minds are plotting ways and means to
hasten it, to get the black metal timbers craned more swiftly out of the
roaring shops and speeding on to New
Vork in  hundreds of uoavy tint curs.
One might think thut the greater part
of the structural erection wus done
iu tlio steel-mills; that it ought to be a
.simple matter to join the purts together uml so erect the framework of
the building. Hue might think so—but
don't mention this thought to tbe iron
foreman—to thut taciturn, tense-featured man, the lines in whose leau face
grow deeper as each story is added.

job witb ils rattling dynamic progress is
enough of u burden. But to rush one,
to crowd ponderous steel into fleeting
hours, is another mutter. Ills employers give him so much time, und keep
pounding him; und along with this pressure they give him constant but contrariwise orders, to wit: Don't kill uny
It,   i

The Framework of one big store in
New Vork, containing 22,000,000 pounds
of Steel, wus erected iu onlv four hundred hours. Not an ironworker wus kill
ed or seriously injured. The Met ropoli
tan tower, rising lifty stories ubOve the
streets, was topped with the sume for
tunate result: so was the lofty "Singer
horn." Some buildings and bridges in
the past have pro\'eu veritable morgues
—they show the constant hazard of the
ironworker's life but buildings ure not
erected that way today, even with
greatly advanced speed.
It is ;i wonderful giant's game of
jack straws—this rearing of the . d
■structure. Firsl a platoon of mo er
derricks is set up in the pit. The masts
are so met ime*- ninety feet iu height,
with beams neatly us long, and are
Shipped all tlie way across the rout in
ent from the big pine forests of Oregon.
Three Mat-ears, end to end, are required
for the length of the poles, and, arrived
at their destination in Xew Vork, they
are trucked through tlie streets to the
building site nt midnight when other
traffic ia nil save suspended.
Now the steel i*- arriving, drawn from
the river lighters in great double team
ed. extension trucks, and is unloaded
all   around   the  edge  of  the   rectangular
pit. Each length is marked to go in a
certain pluce. The drivers for the most
part, are ox-ironworkers and know bow
to handle steel as well ns horses, Thc
derricks nre electrically run und move
silently, swiftly, steadily. The spasmodic jerking of the putting steam upright engine is absent. The big booms
swing, dip. ruNe their muny ton loads
with nil the precision nnd delicacy of
human hands, .lust think of swinging a
heavy girder into a llunge union with u
play on either Bide of little more than Q
quarter of an  inch.
With each derrick there'fl a crew of
seven men. comprising i "pusher" or
squad boss, u derrick-man, And five
over-head   ironworkers.     Over   all   the
squads is the iron foreman, darting
here aud there, looking up and down,
seeing the whole process and everv part
of it.
The mighty work goes on continuously by day and night. Une shift—on a
big job it numbers fifty men—relieves
another. There must be no .stopping;
minutes count. At night yellow and
white incandescent lights sputter over
u ceaseless din aud travail. Now aud

Prom the edge of the pit you see an
iron beam roil lazily out of a pile. Its

contact; but a man's fingers intervened,
and they were Dipped off. Aud metal

No one takes heed of them, not even

Only the best und steadiest men are employed, experienced workers, who are
not only careful of themselves, but also
of their team-mates; and it is remark
able how the charueter of the ironwork

ring of thut lofty derrick, or swaying
iu midair with one leg wound carelessly about a dangling cable, or standing

nothing more substantial under his

plumber laying pipes in the dark basement gets just as high u wage and his

They have muny characteristics in common with their brethren of the plains.
They love u dare and a scampering race.
Often tbey make and huve them—when

one. "it's all right, only it's over nowadays before you get your second wind."
Said another: "This going up at a

there was a hotel within arm's reach,
I one dny I got to talking with u

days more I had to say goodby.
" 'Good-by!' says she, 'Sorry to seo
you go; but I'll introduce you to my
friend Katie who works on the tenth
floor.' "
Every time two stories of steel are
completed the derricks must be raised.
This bas been slow, cumbersome work
in the past. Only u year ugo it meant
a day's work. Now they do it in from
thirty minutes lo two hours. In the old
wuy they rigged u st ill'legged derrick
above, which grappled down und lifted
up the boom derrick. In other words,
thev raised u derrick with B derrick.
Now they make the derrick raise itself. To a layman this sounds like raising one's self by tlie boots. But it
can be done, even with un eight-ton,
ninety foot derrick, A young iron foreman solved the problem one day when
his company gave him just twelve days
to put up the frame of a twelve story

Another precedent broken! Said a nervous young superintendent one morning,
"We begin plastering today."
"What!" expostulated the foreman,
He   interposed   objections,   slowly,   ob-
stinately; the .-uperiiiteudejit snapped

lt is this dovetailing of all the vari
ous activities—from base to cornice,
from side to side, tbat helps most to
solve the puzzle of rapid construction.
No trade waits for another to finish.
Each fits iu the moment another makes
a groove and ull work skyward together.
Thus there muy be more thun u thou
sand men on a building ut one time.
They swarm like auts over the structure. Mauls, riveting-hammers, trowels,
wrenches, shovels, saws—join in a tremendous chorus which may be heard for
Around the base of the building drays
are fighting for room and dumping materials rushed hither from the railroad
yards of Harlem, from the scows of the
North ami Kast rivers, from city supply-
shops. Above all is din, dust, clamor,
and clang. All seems confusion to the
unpractised eye, yet out of the vnstness
of it, u massive, architectural, fireproof monument: grows into the heavens
to endure for ages.
There is another remarkable feature
of the express sky-scraper—this, that in
their construction amid the traffic-
crowded streets of the metropolis, thousands of tons of diverse materials are
whirled up and into place without injuring those itelow or even impeding traffic to uu appreciable degree.
All the various trades—the masons,
steamn'tters, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, plasterers, fire-proof ers, stone-
setters, concrete-mixers, laborers—are
organized in gungs, as ure the ironworkers. Kuch gang has its "pusher," each
trade its foreman. The men are responsible to the "pusher," the "pusher" to the foremen, the foremen to the
superintendent. Every kink in the
work, every problem of the vast operation—nnd they ure many and frequent
—filters quickly down to the superintendent:. He solves them with a suap of
his fingers. Sometimes he bawls back
his orders through a megaphone. Oae
superintendent, an old young mun, wiry,
nervous, alert, wus expluining how he
dovetailed his building gangs.
"I see," I began, "while you are
"No, no!" he interrupted. "Cut out
the word 'waiting.' There's no waiting—anywhere. Thut's just the keynote of the job. We don't wait; we
double up!"
"What will you do wheu you finish

"Get a harder oue," he said, grimly.
The   spirit  of   tbe   superintendent   is,
"Mrs. Maybrick found guilty: Sentence of death."
Thut news spread through the country
one  August   morning   iu    i<Sf>9   aroused
thousands of readers of her tnul to protest.    Tiie night had hardly closed upon
the spreading of the news before petitions were being prepured aud circulated   through   the  country  for  signature,
praying tnat the wretched girl might be
saved  from   the  scaffold.       When  completed,  the  Maybrick  petition  was  the
most  extraordinary  oue   for  u  prisoner
the British isle has ever seen,    it bore
no fewer than close upon a million sig
1 natures,   including    those    of   fifty-two
j members of the House of Commons. One
t of the most remarkable features of thc
1 Maybrick   appeal   was   that   something
like thirty-five  per cent,  of the signatures were those of women.
At eleven o'clock one December night,
eight yeurs ugo, u cab drove up to the
entrance of Hollowuy Prison and u man
leapt out. He wus a messenger irom
the Home Office bearing a sealed despatch from the Home Secretary for im*
Mediate delivery into the hands of the
governor of the prison. A few moment,
later the governor, the chaplain, and
the head wardress were tramping down
the dismal corridors of the prison to the
cell iu which wus confined Miss Kitty
Birou, the young girl condemned for
the killing of a stockbroker whom she
hud encountered in the street and mortally wounded with a knife before the
spectators could rush to his rescue.
Thousands of people hurried to append
their names to the petitions in her favor. Even in the stock exchange itfcelf
people hustled one another to sigu the
appeul for mercy, aud iu less than a
week 500,000 men and women were
pleading on her behalf. The Home Secretary anticipated the presentation of
the petition by commuting the sentence,
but inter on tlie monster petition was
carted into his office urging him to mitigation of the sentence of penal servitude for life.
Liverpool was the centre of another
great agitation for mercy iu 1808, when
the people of Luncushire were aroused
respecting the fate of a youug lieutenant iu the Royal Artillery, Lieutenant
Wark, who had been condemned to death
by Mr. Justice Darling at the preceding
assizes. Wark was accused of the murder of a young woman. Kven though
guilty, there were many circumstances
that appeared to make his offence one
for merciful consideration. The jury
had themselves strongly recommended
him to mercy, and the public found their
hearts iu accord with their finding. A
manly, but at the same time touching,
speech made by tlie prisoner after the
verdict had a vast effect. No fewer
thun 54,000 persons signed the petitions
in his behalf, and the sentence wns Inter
on commuted to one of merely three
years' penal servitude.
From morning till night people flocked to the places iu Edinburgh, Glasgow,
und in ull the lurge towns in Scotland
it culminutes iu financial operations on
a scale unexampled in our day, and 'lie
development of innumeruble industries
connected with the use of rubber.
lt wus, indeed, in lH-iu that Thomson
patented the idea of allixing a **bell '
filled with compressed uix to the rim of
a carriage wheel, and although his invention never came iuto practical use,
he showed greut knowledge of the goo-1
effects which would follow from the use
of the pneumatic tire. Thomson, now
ever, was ahead of his time, and his tue
fouud no favor.
Forty-three years later John Dun lop,
without uny knowledge of the Thomson
invention, patented u pneumatic tire.
More than once I huve beard from Mr.
Duiilop himself the simple tale of how
he came to invent his device. The "safety" bicycle hud then come into vogue,
but its wheels were shod with solid rubber tires. Mr. Dunlop's little son p»s-
sessed a tricycle, and ns the Dunlops
theu lived in Belfast, and the Irish
roads were of very bud surface, this
veterinary surgeon applied his miud to
contrive some means for minimizing the
harsh jolting to which his boy was subjected wheu he rode his tricycle.
A rubber tube filled with compressed
air was evolved, ami it afforded such
comfort to the rider that Mr. Dunlop
brought the ideu before adult cyclists,
aud some enthusiasm wus aroused among
them. But Mr. Dunlop would have hardly been more successful iu I88S than
Thomson in 184o hud not another man
appeared on the scene.
Mr. Harvey du Cros wus ut that time
a prominent figure in Irish sporting
circles, und his sons were famous for
their prowess iu cycle racing. With true
business instinct, Mr. du Cros saw the
immense possibilities of the pneumatic
tire for cycles, and he threw himself
heart and soul into the work of making
this crude invention practicable. His
early efforts were greeted wtih derision.
Cyclists and cycle manufacturers scoffed
at the clumsy "bolster" tyre offered to
them, and almost without exception experts declared against it.
Then Mr. du Cros brought a band of
Irish cyclists, including his sons and Mr.
R. J. Mccredy to England, and they
gained sweeping victories with the pneumatic tire on the racing track. It was
evident now thut the new invention
would eventually triumph, but a long
and desperate fight against conservatism
and prejudice had still to be waged, and
it is reasonable to assume that but for
the enterprise and ability of Mr. Harvey
du Cros Mr. Dunlop's invention might
have lain dormant for muny years. Hud
this been the case the whole progress
of modern locomotion from motoring to
airmanship would have been checked,
for we can trace the direct influence of
the air-filled tire iu all the astonishing
developments of the last twenty-two
years. So from the bad state of Irish
rouds, from the solicitude of a fond par-
cut to make smooth progress for his
son's cycle over rough roads, Thomson's

his army of men. They, too, take a
Bavage joy in the speed of the work.
Ench gang seeks to outrival the other;
every trade works for a record. Each
strives to do "stunts." The first column
up and grilled fast in its concrete base,
is decorated witli a Hag—a tribute to
the gang that erected it. The last piece
of iron in thc completed structure also
bears a like emblem, which waves in
honor of the whole force.
Stonesetters, bricklayers, fireproofers
•—all greet the completion of their tasks
with a triumphant yell. Yesterday the
record was a hundred and fifty dray-
loads of materials laid in a day; now
they have made the record two hundred.
The modern sky-scraper is really a
great steel cage blanketed with stoue,
cement, anel brick. Its walls and partitions arc very thin as compared with
the old-fashioned brick processes which
took up room and gave less strength,
which, moreover, were slow and costly
to erect. The new type of building
stands for strength and economy—ami
lt wns new only a score of years ago.
Then the people of Chicago marvelled
over such a structure only nine stories
high. Pedestrians blocked the sidewalks in front of it and had to be dispersed by tho police. Today the fifty-
story sky-scraper hus already ceased to
be a wonder.
What doe's the future hold forth;
Greater height? The architects say
no: thnt ci multitude <if siu-li structures

Greater Bpeed, then.' Ves, in all probability. The1 express sky-scraper is just
beginning, Every one, from architect
down, is working tn further its speed.
All are simplifying processes, inventing
now mechanical aids, devising better
building systems. Verily, soon we shull
have "sky-scrapers while ynu wnit.''
NOTHING iiiuses the British public
like the sense of injustice done to
a fellow-creature," snid Sir W
Harcourt, while he wus Home Secretary,
nnd not' infrequently prisoners have
funnel themselves the subjects of extraordinary demonstrations in their behalf.
Nearly 80,000 persons signed the petition in favor of Daisy Lord, the poor
girl recently released after eighteen
months of imprisonment. She had been
condemned to the gallows for the deuth
of her child in the most pitiable circumstances. In thousands of homes the
story of her sorrow, of her despair, of
her frenzy, hnd touched the heart and
awakened people to sympathy with her
and to Indignation ut what one of our
most distinguished judges once describ
ed us nn "antiquated ami monstrous
legal form" which had dictated thc
cruel sentence passed upon her.
aud the North of England where petitions were lying iu favor of the young
woman who had been pronounced guilty
of the murder of Jessie Maephersini, the
housekeeper who had beeu discovered
mysteriously murdered in a house in
Suudyford Pluce, Glasgow. The jury
had found her guilty, and the judge hud
expressed his entire concurrence iu tne
verdict, but the public regarded the ease
as one of mystery. "McLachlau shall
not die!" was the ery of thousands.
Crowds flocked to the places where the
petitions in her behalf were lying, and
in the end the sentence was commuted
to one of life-long imprisonment.
A huge sensation was created by the
result of the Penge murder case, when
three persons named Staunton—two
brothers and the wife of oue of them—
and a young girl were charged with the
murder of the wife of the . younger
brother by starving her to death, i'he
ease was the first murder trial over
which Mr. Justice Hawkins presided,
and the prisouers were defended by Sir
Edward Clarke.
But whether I lie denth of the unfortunate woman wns designed or merely
the result of callous and brutal indifference was a hard question, and people
gave a gasp of surprise when the trial
resulted in the batch of four persons being found guilty of wilful murder an.l
sentenced to death! A thrill of horror
passed through the country. Agitation
in favor of the* prisoners commenced on
all sides. Over 80,000 persons attached
their signatures to tin; petitions against
the death sentence being carried out.
So absurd wns the verdict and sentence
recognized to be with regard to the girl
accused with the Stauntons that the
Home Secretary hurriedly granted her
an absolute free pardon. The others
were saved from Hie gallows.
Do petitions in behalf of prisoners
have any «*1Tci*i .-* Some persons ha.o
questioned it. But there is really no
doubt thut u petition, largely signed and
urging Reasonable grounds for revision
nf a sentence, tins considerable weight
with a Home Secretary.
"Whnt the public brain thinks and

Cross is said to huve remarked to a legal
gentleman who sneered ut a petition he
had received, "is worth attention. 1
shall never turn a deaf our to a voice

THE dispute arose about a statue.
Who invented the pneumatic tire?
To whom should Edinburgh give
honor in bronze or marble? To a Mr.
R. W. Thomson, who patented an air-
filled tiro in 1S45, or to John Dunlop,
who invented the pneumatic tire in
1SSS? The dispute curries the imagination back over one of the most astonishing episodes iu our industrial history.
It begins with a mystery of invention.

right mau was at hand to develop the
From the pneumatic tired bicycle
there evolved naturally the idea of fitting air tiros to motor cars, and iu this
direction France led the way. The
crude mechanism of the early motors
was saved from the rough vibration of
the roads, and the automobile improved
with amazing swiftness as soon as these
tires wore employed. With the progress
of the motor car came the perfecting of
the petrol engine aad its application to
manifold purposes. Last of all, it made
the airship and the aeroplane possible,
and in each of these vessels rubber fabric is extensively employed.
Follow the evolution from small to
great. Today cycles are numbered in
millions, thc total iu the United Kingdom being over three millions. There
are close on 180,000 motor vehicles in
the United Kingdom, and the world's
total must soon approximate to half a
million. All over the globe the trail of
the air-filled tire hus been laid by millions uml millions of wheels, and the
road is becoming once more the main
artery of our social system. In the air,
too, we are tracing uew routes by the
nid of the petrol engine. Airships are
being built by every great Power, and
of aeroplanes France alone has already
nearly two hundred, most, of them fitted
with pneumatic tired wheels. With all
this hns come the creation of innumerable allied industries, perhaps the most
remarkable industrial development being thnt. in connection with the production of raw rubber.
And this colossal factor in our indus-
triul life hns come into existence because of a discomfort to a child cycling
nlong the rough roads of Ireland.
Whether of Dunlop or of Thomson, Edinburgh's statue will not be without significance us a symbol in our industrial history.

DO not, gentle reader, start back aud
think that 1 am about to enter
iu these literary columns ou a
political discussion. Here 1 have no
opinions to pronounce ou Mr. Roosevelt's political views, either on the affairs of his own or of our country. Let
the political journals debate those questions to their hearts' content; we are
concerned here with the muu aud not
with his politics.
it is a complex personality, and yet
in its essentials it is a very simple—I
had almost said a primordial uud elemental— personality. The complexity
conies from the man's environment; the
simplicity is in the man himself. Simple, direct, almost brusque iu speech,
with very definite aud very single purpose, with no tolerance or even keen
sense of the intricacies, the insincerities, aud the difficulties of all political
or social problems, this man goes
straight to his object. He offends many
traditions; sometimes he exasperates
muny people to fits of inarticulate or
blasphemous ruge; he now and then, by
the very rudeness of his attack, help's
the forces he is assailing; but he goes
right on, never perceptibly influenced or
discouraged or wounded by the attacks
that come so abuiulautly iu reply. No'/
ene and even joyous in lis inner self, in
s-pite of strong language and apparently
hot resentment, this strange survival or
recrudescence of -i simpler and robuster
age goes right on, laughing with the
hearty laugh almost of a child iu the
midst of the raging tempests of passion
which he everywhere gathers around
him. 1 was particularly struck with
that when 1 had a little talk with him
the other morning, immediately after
his Guildhall speech. The speech, as we
all know, brought down on his head a
considerable amount of notice, not altogether friendly; but he seemed as unconscious of it all—except by a certain
boyish enjoyment of it—as though it
had never been.
His career as president was on just
tho same lines. Few people who do not
know America intimately cap have any
idea of the cyclones of hatred and vituperation through which Mr. Roosevelt
as President had to pass. After all,
there is no power in political life which
you cau tread on with such certainty
of a serpent-spring back at you as
Money, and especially Big Money. Money is powerful everywhere; Biy Money
too powerful everywhere. But us there
is no country where there is so much
money, and, above all, so much Big
Money, as the United States, so there
is uo place where au attack upon it
brings such terrific rejoiuder. And
therefore it was thnt, when Mr. Roosevelt began to attack the gigantic trusts,
with their revenues equal to those of
muny smnll States, with subjects almost
us numerous und almost as dependent,
with their antennae spread all over—in
the Press, in the Legislature, in the
judiciary, and even iu the pulpit—ho
fell foul not of oue serpent, but of a
hundred thousand serpent-headed
powers, pomps, and principalities.
Roosevelt fought for the millions, and
that is the reason why he embodies so
I don't know that he was always
prudent, und 1 don't know that ho was
always right, but i cannot help admiring that splendid and elemental courage.
He knew the risks and faced them, anil
never wns dismayed by them. Horo
he is todnv approaching fifty years of
age, and he has the stride, the toughness, the unlined fnee, the ready and
open laughter, the free speech of a boy.
Wellington admired the courage of thut
heroic sergeant in the Peninsular who
grew pule when he wus ordered to advance on u forlorn hope, but who yet
advanced, overcoming the natural mun
by the sheer force of will and sense of
duty. Roosevelt has no title to the
same kind of admiration; he never
grows (ink* iu the si**ht of danger, ho
luuglis ut it, and if it eaiiice tee his turn
to lead u forlorn hope he would do so
either with a hearty smile or with just
u little more sternness in the strong,
stern chin. He has no inner tremors,
ever to overcome.    He is primordiul.
And yet this splendidly robust creature was a delicate youth, aud perhaps
it was this delicacy which helped to
make him what he is today. He wns
ordered West by the physicians from his
native New York. This wns some thirty
years ago, and the West of America wns
the West. Today even the States which
1 myself kuew and saw as desolate,
hopeless, thinly-populated prairies lire
now covered with mighty cities, with
their great, clean, even streets, their
monster hotels, their gorgeous theatres
and opera houses, their cathedrals and
their chapels. But thirty years ago
they eould still be the haunts of the
men who fight and kill big game; they
were populated by those adventurous,
reckless, lawless spirits who huve fled
voluntarily or under logul pressure from
turner civilizations; and men had to
live under the conditions of man's first
steps towards the establishment of
orderly communities.
Here was the -right training ground
for the primordial man that Roosevelt
is. He fought for big game, taking his
life often in his hands; but he had even
grimmer and more trying experiences,
for he lived among men who had, many
of them, lost respect for ordinary human law. They held life cheap, and
they often took it or lost it iu the
course of a smnll personal dispute
which, in civilized society, would end iu
a laugh or u lawsuit. But Roosevelt
liked, though he did not always approve
nf. his wild associates. There is a stirring story in one of his many sketches
of Western life in which he tells how
two desperadoes, meeting accidentally,
after the exchange of many taunts began firing on each other till tliey both
fell, and uow one of them, though dying
and prone on tho ground, managed to
fire a last shot which sent his enemy
nnd himself companions over the Styx.
They wero perhaps both well out of
the way, but what grit they showed! as
is the characteristic comment of Roosevelt.
A primordial man among primordial
men in the West, Roosevelt has retained
a good deal of that spirit still; and it
is one of the many factors that go to
make up his extraordinary popularity.
He has no sense of any social distinctions; everyone is either n man or not
a man to him. Oue of his friends is
John L. Sullivan, the famous prize-
ficrhter, aud he speaks of John L. with a
certain tender affection. "Mighty good
fellow is John," he says, musingly; and
theu he tells some humorous story of
John L's peculiarities, which prove
that, with all his stronuousness aud
sternness of purpose, Roosevelt has a
keen souse of humor. He was terribly
assailed because he naked Brooker
Washington, the celebrated colored propagandist and college president, to take
a lunch with him at the White House.
But who that knows Roosevelt could
have been surprised that he made no
distinction   of  race   or  color  when  he
found himself in the presence of one he
coiiMtiered a real man.'
The face never comes out well iu a
photograph. , Every photograph I have
seen of Roosevelt is. indeed, more of a
caricature than a photograph. This is
because you see all the **.tern, hard lines
of the face aud not the expression. The
jaw, massive aud square, the stroog
mouth, the stern brows, all these things
are reproduced; but what are these
tilings without the boyish smile, the
quick humor, the welcoming shake, and
the tactful and pleasant word which
you kuow in Roosevelt the moment you
are in his presence!1 He has his likes
aud uislikes, doubtless—perhaps strong
ones—but I am inclined to think that
they are to things rather than to men.
He is glad to see and to hear everybody; he has a strong, human, fraternal
soul, this man who has lived in the
midst of fierce and devastating conflicts
ull his life. This is partly the result
of his environment. No mau ia America is such a perfect type and embodiment of that oqualitniiuii and simple,
and even brotherly, spirit which remains, amid all its faults and disappointments, the most splendid virtue
and conquest of the Republican system
of government iu the United States.
The rich in America often oppress the
poor, but they never patronize and they
never slight them. And Roosevelt meet
iug any body of men—soldiers, youug
uspiruuts, the humble, the distressed,
the prize-fighter, everybody who represents early struggle or helpfulness or
sympathy—Roosevelt, meeting any body
of men, hails them each one with the
same warm shake of the hand, the same
pleasant word, the same smile. It is
this naturalness and brotherliness of
the man's manner that also create
around him that atmosphere of blind
affection which everywhere meets him
among the masses in America.
Finally Roosevelt met the conditions
which bring out the great man; for
in all great careers there must be the
conditions as well as the man. Roosevelt represents The Revolt. It is everywhere, The Revolt; but it is stronger,
more widespread, more vehement in Am-
erica than in uny other country. Roosevelt found his country iu the chains of
trusts, monopolies, and the possession
by these organizations not merely of the
resources but of the laws, the food, and
the very being of the ninety millions
that make up the mighty nation. Leader of a party that draws much of its
strength from the rich and the conservative, Roosevelt was a Radical, and even
a Revolutionary. He fought the trusts;
ue shouted at them cries of arrogaut
defiance; he raised up against them
every instrument that the rather unwieldy Constitution of his country permitted. Sometimes they were able to
beat him; sometimes he adopted wrong
methods; often I have thought that he
attacked the man, not the system; the
topmost braaches and not the poison
roots of the system. But he voiced The
Revolt; aud it is as the voice of The
Revolt that millions in America look up
to him and believe in him aud love hiin
and hope from him.
SPEAKING against time is common
enough iu  most  Parliaments,  but
praying against time is something
new.   Tho Washington 'rimes, however,
tells of such an occurrence, which once
happened in the United Stutes capital.
Members of the House, who had congregated iu the cloak room during the
general debate on the tariff, wore discussing the recent prayer of the Rev.
Mr. Coudrey. the House chaplain, deploring muckraking.
-'For some reasou," said one of eke
veteran members, --the chaplain's
prayer reminded uie of the most amusing incident I ever sny during my entire
sorvice in the House of Representatives.,
The incident occurred many years ago,
so I havo forgotten the names of thu
actors, but there are still sume members
of the House who recall it.
"One day the journal clerk rushed
into the House while tin.* chaplain was
praying. He looked through the drawers of his desk in a hasty manner and
then hustled to lhe side of the chaplain.
'' ' Keep on praying,' he urged earnestly.   'We can't find the journal.'
"Mr. Chaplain was so startled that
he faltered iu his prayer, but after a
moment he seemed to grasp the situation. He bowed his head still louver
and continued to pray. The usual time
devoted to prayer iu the House is about
a minute. Members begun to shift uu- l
easily on their feet, to look at their
watches, and. instead of bowing their
bonds in reverence, they lookod at the
.Speaker, pleadingly. The Speaker, evidently, had been informed of the difficult nnd, realizing that the business
of the House could uot proceed without
the journal, he was willing that the
members get plenty of prayer. After
ten minutes' solid praying the preacher
showed signs of getting nervous. He
knew the members were getting restive
aud he looked down to one of the clerks.
" 'Don't stop,' pleaded the clerk.
'We haven't fouud it yet.'
"The preacher did not stop until he
had been praying for fifteen minutes,
at the end of which time the journal
clerk rushed into the House bearing the
precious book under his arm.
" 'Amen,' said the chaplain with a
sigh of relief, and the Speaker promptly
ordered the clerk to read the journal
of the precoding day's business."
THE Suffragist community is indebted to Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont for a
new story. Mrs. Belmont, as all
know, is one of the most anient of Suffragists. The other ladies in the movement complain that she wishes to be the
whole show, and just permit the others
to work for her, but no one questions
her devotion to the cause. She refused
the other dny to aopear on the samo
platform with another lady who was
hopelessly in the thrall of the demon
man, and to explain her dislike told the
"I used to know a married pair,"

when I saw her butler pass the door

'Oh,'' I said, 'are you going to get rid

with a sigh. "I'm very fond of him—
but I feel that it is my duty to send him

lovely woman along and risk her
fair neck, splashed into lame live years
later. Within the green gardens of
Loudon's l5ugle Inn, in the late spring
of 18.2!, the eyes of the populace feast -
■ed upon the "Koyal George,1' a "stupendous and magnificent" steed which
strained at it* harness while its gaudy
ear rested upon a stage erected for
the occasion, lt was a day suited by
weather t" novel adventure.' The earth
below, warm under the northward-
hastening sua, was not more alluring
than the blue dome of the sky overhead,
which seemed to beckon to earth bound
The charioteer selected to brave the
trip was one Harris, formerly of the
navy, and it, was announced to the
hundreds awaiting his entrance that he
wus to be accompanied by a fair companion, a girl whom he had never seen
before that day, but whose pluck aud
persistence in begging to accompany
him to yield and share with her the
honors of the trip.
Everything being in readiness, a
band struck up an air in the distance,
and behind it. came marching in stately
1 .-ihion, from the Inn, a procession,
headed by the aeronaut, iu white hat
ind blue uniform ornamented with a
profusion of gold lace and brass buttons. Loaning upon his arm was a frail
girl of about eighteen, delicate in coloring ami simply gowned in a frock of
■white, muslin. About her straw bou-
net was a wreath of roses, and her hair
was turned back upon her temples aud
Cheers greeted the little heroine as
she ascended the stage, and, after sho
aad curtsied iu return, tlie aeronaut
helped her iuto the gaily adorned oval
car with its coverings of crimson velvet-
festooned and fringed with green and
yellow silk. The crowds pressed closer
to the car, and some women offered the
pretty pusyenge* their cloaks and their
•shawls, which slip declined. Others asked if she did net wish the attendance of
ii'inie ot her fiUi ily, but sho replied
w;U out a auspicious sign of uesitutbm
that her mnthiv was outside the gate
and had consented to her ascent.
The balloonist, after pronu-i.i.i; tli.if
he would descend and return to tho guv-
den within a couple of hours, gave the
word, and , the cords being slipped
forthwith, the balloon rose into the air,
ytfter the car had beeu nearly capsized
by a defect of the launching-gear. For
a while the "Koyal George" pursued
its course steadily in a southwesterly
direction. Then it. entered a thick
cloud and wus losL to the view of earthly ga/.ers. Up to the last second when
it was within view of the observers it
■was sailing along with majestic calm,
apparently perfectly stanch and airworthy. There was uot thc slightest
reason I'or any apprehension.
A rumbling noise, like thunder, came
dowu from tne sky that afternoon, to
trouble a gamekeeper ensconced beneath a spreading tree In Beddiugton
Park, near Car shalt ou. Squiutiug aloft,
ne was amazed to see a black monster
■swooping down upon his shadowy retreat. Before he could recover his
breatli there was a crash aud the thud
of a heavy body that had fallen
through an adjacent tree. Running to
the spot, he found spread upon the
ground great folds ot silk, i'roin beneath which issued smothered moans.
He hastily moved the tangled mass, to
disclose a pale and terror-stricken girl
in a white dress.
Gasping a question as to where she
was, she swooned, aud was tenderly
laid out upon the grass with her head
upon a pillow. Deeper beneath the collapsed body of the ill-fated "Koyal
George" was found its lifeless driver.
Side by side the two limp figures
were carried to the Plough inn, at Car-
■shalt oil, and placed in neighboring
rooms. Harris was gone beyond recall,
and his corpse was sent forlhwitu to
a sorrowing widow, but his companion
still retained a spark of life.
Inquiry disclosed that she wa? Sophia
Stocks, the daughter of a millwright
in Vinegar Gardens, and for days she
lay at the little inn, at lirst moaning
with agony, repenting over and over in
er dreams the terrors of the ''Royal

The First Parachute Tragedy
There's somethin    in a flying horse,
There's something in a Hying horse,
— Wordsworth.
Such horrible catastrophes as these set
inventors at work striving to perfect
the parachute, wherewith aerial mariners might escape from their burning or
runaway ships. One of these inventors
was a man named Cocking, uu aged Englishman. And upon a bright day iu
July, 1S37, an immense concourse of people gathered in Vauxhall Gardens, London, to see him launch his aparatus from
thc great Nassau balloon, which had recently mnde a celebrated night iiight
from England to Germany.
Gradually the monstrous, striped bnlloon grew from a flat, shapeless mass
und swelled above the green iloor of the
gardens. 'Iho crowds surged forward as
the aged inventor produced his odd vehicle—a great, Irish linen, umbrella-like
object, thirty-five feet in diameter, and
like a parachute of today turned upside
down, or with its concave surface faced
toward the sky. Tt was attached to tlie
bottom of the balloon-car, and fixed to
stay open during the ascent. Below it
was hung a little basket in which stood
its inventor, very pale and "expressing
confidence of success; but evincing, by
restless looks and nervous manner, that
it was a confidence which he did not
The great gas-bag rose majestically,
although steadied by the weight of the
parachute and its occupant. Nature was
"kind, hot a capful of wind blew up to
disturb the poise of the pendant
"There was not the slightest oscillation," says a scribe of our great-grandfathers' time, who witnessed the event.
1' The balloon and paracjrute sailed
through the air with a grandeur that exceeded anything of the kind ever before
witnessed, and continued in sight for
about ten minutes."
The excited multitude had expected
to see the new invention cut loose and
descend among them, but after the
clouds closed in upon it they beheld it
no more.
From his dangling basket Mr. Cocking had repeatedly called up to the navi
gators to learn how far'they had climbed
ihe tires of cloud. He seemed to be suffering from anxiety, but voiced no hesitation about ending the experiment.
"1 shall soon leave you,'" he culled
when about over Greenwich and some
three-quarters of a mile up. And he
added that he never felt more comfort
able or delighted in his life.
"Good night!" As the words floated
up to them from the parachute the bal-
loonists felt a sudden jerk. Then they
shot up into the air as if carried by a
giant sky-rocket. The gas, rushing in
torrents from the lower valve, nearly
.suffocated them and rendered them
totally blind for three or four minutes.
So they did not try to see how their
parachutist had landed.
Meanwhile a spectator from Vauxhall
Gardens had followed, on horseback, the
direction which the balloon and para
chute had seemed to take in passing over
London. Xow and then he saw the aeronauts faintly through the veil of clouds,
aud on and on he galloped.
At length he arrived at a field  near

wood, just before leaving earth, said
to a brother scribe:
"I cure to go only this once, just for

So ut five on that midsummer afternoon the " I'eiii-nuin'' rose gracefully
from the Hippodrome to a height of u
mile. Then it Hunted steadily to the
northeast, out over Luke Michigan nud
iu a direction which, if followed, would
hnve tuken it, to (ernnel Haven, eene liiin-
cli-eil  uml  twenty  miles distant.
Thousands of people packed the lake-
front to watch it us it sailed before u

been up for an hour and u half did the
grout bul! fade frnm their sight. Evou
then hundreds, anxious about the descent, waited to see if perchanco n
counter-current might se^il it back.
Just us dusk wns falling the schooner
Little Guide, standing some thirty miles
off the Illinois shore, and about u dozen
miles north of Chicago, sighted the bnlloon und noted that it occasionally dipped until the basket touched the lake.
So the Little Guide made off in the direction of tho aeronauts, although they

darkness wus fust filling the gray space

it disappeared in the blackening night

That night a furious hurricane swept
down upon Luke Michigan, uml nil
through the awful hours two terrified
women watched through tho blurred
panes of theii- windows. One wus Don-

hurried down tee the lake, whose frantic
waves had subsided until source u ripple
disturbed its surface.
Hut a maddening month of suspense

Proper Lubrication
For Traction Engines, Wagons, Etc.
Mica Axle Grease
l&£ qreaS
makes the wheel
as nearly fric-
tionless 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
D| insures better work  from   the  nevr machine
rlOWS, ,nd lengthens the liie of the old.     WhCTe-
narrows,  Drills, ever bearings are   loose  or   boxes  worn  it
takes up  the play and acts like   a  cushion.
Changes of weather do not affect it.
Standard Gas Engine Oil
is the only oil you need. It provides perfect lubrication under high temperatures without appreciable carbon deposits on rings or
cylinders, and is equally good lor the external bearings.
Capitol Cylinder Oil
delivers more power, and makes the engine
run better and longer with less wear and tear,
because its friction-reducing properties are
exactly fitted to the requirements of steam
traction engines and steam plants.

"How could he know?"

"I'll land him in prison, if he doesu't

cleverness as he was by this premature
publicity given to the story. '' He has

"But—what shall we do? All the

"Buy what you need, and remain indoors as much as you can," he instructed. "Reporters will be sure to haunt

"It's horrible!" said Dorothy. "It
almost makes ine wish I had never

Garrison looked at her with frank
adoration iu his eyes.
"Whatever the outcome, I shall always be glad," he said—"glad of the

"I'll try to be worthy of your courage," she answered, returning his look
with an answering glance in which

"Oh, Mr. Hunter, this is a very pleasant surprise!" she said. "Allow me to

Dorothv, "This is Mr. Hunter, of the

Prepared to bow and let it go at

on learning the visitor's connection. Mr.
Hunter, on his part, meeting, strangers

and quite conventional, but pricked up
his ears, which wero strung to catch the

Star which Dorothy had left iu a chair.
He deftly tucked it up beneath his coat.
No, oh, no, certainly not," he said,
aud pulling out his watch, he added to
{Dorothy, "I shall have to be going. Put
\a your hat and come out for a two-
unuto walk."
Then, to the others:
"Sorry to havo to run off in this uncomplimentary fashion, but I trust we
shall meet again.''
Hunter felt by instinct that this was
the man of all men whom he ought, in
all duty, to see. He could not insist upon his calling in such a situation, however, and Garrison und Dorothy, bowing
as they passed, were presently out in
the hail with the parlor door closed behind them. In half a minute more they
wero  out upon  the street.
"You'll be obliged to find other
apartments at once," he said. "You'd
better not even go back to pay the bill.
I'll send the woman a couple of dollars
and write that you made up your mind
to go along homo, after all."
"But—1 wanted to ask a lot of questions—of Miss Ellis," said Dorothy,
thereby revealing the reason she had
wished to come here before. "I thought
perhaps "
"Questions about me?" interrupted
Garrison, smiling upon her in the light
of a street lamp they were passing. "I
can tell you far more about the subject
than she could even guess—if we ever
get the time.''
Dorothy blushed as she tried to meet
his gaze.
"Well — it  wasa't  that — exactly,"
she  said.    I only thought—thought  it
might be interesting to know her.''
"It's far more interesting to know
where you will go,'' he answered.   '' Let
ine look at this paper for a minute."
He pulled forth the Star, turned to
the classified ads, found the "Furnished
Koonis," ami cut out half a column with
his knife.
"Let me go back where I was tonight," she suggested. "I am really
too tired to hunt a place before tomorrow. I can slip upstairs aud retire at
once, and the first thing iu the morning
I cau go to a place where Alice used
to stay, with a very deaf woman who
never remembers my name aud always
calls me Miss Root.''
"Where is the place?" said Garrison,
halting as Dorothy halted.
"In West Eighteenth Street." She
gave him the number. "It will look
so very queer if I leave like this," she
added, "I'd rather uot excite suspicion."
"All right," he replied, taking out a
booklet and jotting down "Miss Root,"
and the address she had mentioned.
"I'll write to you iu the name the
deaf woman remembers, or thinks she
remembers, and no one need know who
you are. If I hurry now 1 can catch the
train that connects with the local on the
Hartford division for Rockdale.''      ,
They turned and weut back to the
"Vou don't know how long you'll be
gone?" she said as they ueared the
steps .   "You cannot tell iu the least?"
'' Long enough to do some good, I
hope," he answered. "Meantime, don't
see anybody. Don't answer auy questions; and don't neglect to leave here
early iu the morning."
She was silent for a moment, and
looked nt him shyly.
"1 shall feel a little bit lonely, I'm
afraid," she confessed—"witli none of
my relatives, or friends. I hope you'll
not be very long.   Good-by.''
"Good-by," said Garrison, who could
not trust himself to approach the subject she had broached; and with his
mind reverting to the subject of his personal worry in the case, he added: "By
the way; the loss of your wedding -certificate can be readily repaired if you'll
tell me the name of the preacher, or the
justice of the peace "
"I'd rather not—just at present,'
she interrupted, in immediate agitation
"Goodnight—I'll have to go in."
She fled up the steps, found the door
ajar, and pushing it open, stood frameei
by the light for a moment, as she turn
ed to look back where he was standing
Only for a moment did she hover
there, however.
He could not see her face as she saw
He could not know that a light of
love aud a mute appeal for forgiveness
lay together in the momentary glance
bestowed upon him.
Then she closed the door; und as one
in a dream he slowly walked away.
A Dearth of Clews
Garrison's ride ou the train was a
mutter of several hoors' duratiou. Not
only did he read every line of the story
in the Star, which he felt convinced had
beeu furnished by young Robinson, but
he likewise had time to reflect ou all
the phases, old and new, of the case iu
which he wus involved.
Hut wander where they would, his
thoughts invariably swung around the
troubled circle tu Dorothy ami the topic
wus she married or not, and if she was—c
where was the man?
He could not reach a decision.
Heretofore he had reasoned there
could be no genuine Fairfax; tonight he
entertained many doubts of his Former
deduction's, He found it possible to construe Dorothy's actions botli ways. She
was afraid to have him search out the
man who had written her wedding certificate, perhaps because it was a fraud,
or perhaps because there wus a Fairfax somewhere, concerning whom something must be hidden.
The murder mystery, the business of
the will, even the vengeance ho promised
himself he would wreak ou Theodore,
sunk into significance in the light of
his personal worry. There was only oue
thing worth while, and thut was love.
He was rapidly approaching a frame
of mind iu which no sacrifice would be
too great to bo made, could he only be
certain of winning Dorothy, heart-free,
for his own.
For more than an hour he sat thinking, in the car, oblivious to the flight of
time, or to the towns through which he
was passing. Ho gave it up at last and,
taking from his pocket a book he employed for memoranda, studied certain
items there, supplied by Dorothy, concerning her uncle and his ways of life.
There were names of his frieads and
his enemies among the scribbled data,
together with descriptive bits concerning Hardy's personality.
Marking down additional suggestions
and otherwise planning his work to be
done at Rockdale, Garrison reflected
there was little apparent hope of clearing young Durgin of suspicion, unless
one trifling hint should supply the clew.
Dorothy had stated that her Uncle John
had long had some particularly bitter
anil malicious enemy, a man unknown
to herself, from whom she believed Mr.
Hardy might have been fleeing, from
time to time, iu the trips which had become the habit of his life.
That this constant moving from place
to place had beeu the bane of his existence was a theory that Dorothy had
formed a year before. Yet, for all she
knew, it might have been young Eoster
Durgin whom her uncle was trying to
The train connection for Rockdale was
wretchedly timed. What with n long
wait at the junction and a long delay
at a way station farther out, it was
nearly one o'clock when ut length his
destination was reached and Garrison,
with his steel-trap suit-case in hand,
found his way to a second-rate hotel,
where, to his great relief, the beds were
far better than they looked.
He hnd taken the precaution to register as Henry Hilborn. realizing that
Rockdale doubtless abounded iu acquaintances of Hardy's who would probably read the published story of his
will in their own local papers in the
morning, He wrote at once to Dorothy,
under the name of Miss Root, apprising
her of his altered name and his address.
In the morning he was early at his
work. Representing himself as nothing
more than the agent of the New York
Insurance Company, for which he was,
in fact, couductiug his various investigations, at least in part, he rapidly
searched out one after another of tho
persons whose names Dorothy had supplied, but all to little purpose.
He found the town very much alive
indeed to the news which the Star had
blazoned to the world. Hardy had been
a well-known figure off and on, for many
years in Rockdale, and the names of the
Durgins and of Dorothy were barely less
Garrison's difficulty was not that the
people talked too little, but rather that
they talked too much, and said almost
nothing in the process. New trivialities
were exceedingly abundant.
He worked all day with no results of
consequence. The persons whose names
had been supplied by Dorothy had, in
turn, furuished more names by the dozen, alleging that this man or that knew
John Hardy better than the proverbial
brother, if possible; nevertheless, one
after another, they revealed their ignorance of any vital facts that Garrison
could use.
On the following day he learned that
Paul Durgin, the nephew credited with
having claimed the body of the murdered man, lived ten miles out on a farm,
amassing a fortune rearing ducks.
Hiring a team, Garrison drove to Durgin's farm. He found his man in the
centre of a vast expanse of duck-pens,
where ducks by the thousand, all singularly white anel waterless, were greeting
their master with acclaim.
Durgin enme out of the duck midst
to see his visitor. He was a large, taciturn being, healthy, strong, anil independent, a trifle suspicious and more
than a trifle indifferent as to the final
disposal of John Hardy's fortune.
Garrison, lit first, found him hard to
handle. He had not yet read the papers.
He knew nothing at all of whnt was
being said: nnd now that ho heard it nt
last, from Garrison's lips, lie scarcely
did more than nod his head.
Garrison was annoyed. He determined on awakening the diick-stopored being, unless the task should prove hopeless.
"Mr. Durgin," he said, "the reasons
for supposing that Hardy was murdered
—poisoned—are far more convincing
than anyone reallv supposes—and suspicion points particularly at a person
in whom you may and may not be interested—your younger brother, Foster
A curious white appearance crept all
about the smooth-shaven mouth of the
duck man. He was not iu the least an
emotionless clod; he was not even cold
or indifferent, but silent, slow at giving
expression to anything but excellent
business capabilities.
He looked at Garrison steadily, but
with dumb appeal in his eyes. The blow

Garrison sorry.

quired, "even with Foster wild?"

E hear much from time to time of
the wonders of this or that complicated aud iutricate machine,
but thore are few pieces of machinery
more marvellous than that of the common watch.
A watch, it may be stated as a general proposition, is the smallest, most
delicate instrument of the same number
of parts that has ever been devised.
About 175 different pieces of material
enter into its construction, and upwards
of 2,400 .separate operations are comprised in its manufacture.
Certain of the facts connected witli
its performance are well-nigh incredible when considered as a whole. A
blacksmith strikes several hundred
blows on his anvil in a day, and, as
a matter of course, is glad when Sunday
comes; but thc roller jewel of a watch
makes every day—and day by day—■
432,000 impacts against the fork, or

a year, without stop or rest—some'3,-
ir*.:},(,00,000 blows during the space of
twenty years, the period for which a
watch is usually guaranteed to keep
good time.
But the wonder of it does not cease
here. It has been calculated that tlie
power that moves tbe watch is equivalent to only four times the force used
in a Ilea's jump. The watch power is,
therefore, what might be termed the
equivalent of four flea-power. One
horse-power would suflice to operate
270,000.000  watches.
Furthermore, the balance-wheel of a
watch is moved by this four flea power

at her indulgently.

"it's well to name it my every-day

looked suddenly wistful, her brows
wrinkling. "And you.'" she asked. "Is
there no vein of deeper feeling to be
stirred at thut," ami she pointed toward the glorious western sky, "or
this?'' with a sweep of her arm toward
the valley lower down—their valley.
He hesitated, and it seemed as if a
slight flush rose to the lean brown
cheeks. He looked at the golden splendor in the west, at the dimpling, laughing earth beneath them and then into
ber face, pale, clear, with its sensitive
lips and delicate nostrils.
"Judge me." he said, and the quiver
iu his voice matched her own. "For I

sun that has ever given light: or if this
is the close of the first magnificent day,
and we the fir.st mau ami woman, unspoiled, fresh from the Maker's hand,

She said nothing, but tbe little wistful curve between her brows disappeared suddenly and the fine lips grew tremulous. To her, indeed, the world seemed
recreated, but she had not hoped to
huve her feelings set to words—aad uow
he had spoken and she knew they were
in unison. The harsh business of life
would claim them before long, the affairs of otber men and other women
would occupy their days—but this hour
was theirs, and she drew a long, deep
breath, standing silently, quietly, beside him. The golden glow took a
deeper tinge, and they on the heights
looked from slope to hollow, from wood-

Mrs, Northrop sat quietly rocking in
the low chair in the middle of tne room.
Her friend, a little woman with soft
white hair above a wrinkled forehead
rind with lips that in repose were wistful, even sorrowful, had been looking at
her curiously, $he thought -tow well
Eleanor Northrop stood the stress of
years; how lovely she was still; how
her very person, her slender figure, in its
well-worn black gown, radiated her personality; how she fitted, into this room
which, artistic and buautiful and quiet
ly subdued, was dominated by the woman's presence, the touch of her hand,
her tastes, -She watched the curve of
her wrist, the turn of her head, the
daintiness that was part and would always be part of her—a daintiness she
love.'!; fp-V they were true nnd ardent
friends, these two, opposite in character as thev might be on the surface, but
alike beneath.
"It's strange, Eleanor," she said.
"No amount of worry seems to be able
to affect you. Do you know you are
almost as attractive today ;is ever you
were.' "
Eleanor Northrop lifted her head,
filing it up rather, and her eyes met
her friend s smilingly,
"Almost!" she said. "With one or
two exceptions. This grey hair, for example, which is barely enough to cover
my poor scalp; the crow's-feet and the
very handsome teeth substituted for my
own rather insignificant ones! I may be
almost as attractive to those who care
for me. Juliet, but not nearly so genuine!
There was an undercurrent of mockery in her tones. Juliet Clarke glanced
at her sea rchi ugly.
"I wanted to feast my eyes on .you—
it's a treat to find you alone—even if
you do rail at yourself. And now—
well, Eleanor, I want to ask you something, and I know no one else would
be courageous enough. Have you heard

"From my son?" Her expression
changed a trifle. "No, Juliet, 1 haven't heard from him. When Marsden's

"To save her!"
"Her life is not your lite," said the |
gentle mentor, steadily:   "If you  spoil
it, as you will by forbidding this marriage, you lose everything and gain nothing. "
The mother rose to her feet, her
breast heaving.
"I lose everything when I lose her,"
she said iu a dogged tone. "The sharer

She paused, for Mrs. Northrop held
up a warning hand, and turned to the
table, so that her back was toward tin*
door. Her face was very pale, her eyes
strained. Then the door was opened,
und Nell stood on the threshold.
"Mav we come iu. mother.'" she
called, brightly. "And Mrs. Clarke!" in
a tone of pleased surprise. "How good
to see you   here!
"Vour mother would not come to me,

interested face. "Vou young folks keep

One of the finest concerts
that has been heard in Hosmer
for a long time was given by
the Methodists at the opera
house on Monday night. There
was, as ail vert ised, talent old
and talent new, and it is hard
to say which was more appreciated. The llosmer orchestra
is now an institution which,
without, llosmer would be dull
indeed. Their selections on
Monday night were given with
more /est than ever, and the
various numbers met with the
appreciation they deserved.
Three new singers to the
town were the Misses Whyte,
Rankine and Gourlay, all of
whom rendered their songs
most creditably. Miss Whyte's
"Come Back to Erin" was sung
in a most charming manner,

New R. C. Church for Hosmer.
The increasing population of
Hosmer has for some time
caused much inconvenience
through overcrowding in the
present Roman Catholic chapel.
There is, now in the course of
completion, a niagnilicient ed-
ilice situated to the west of the
0. P. ll, .Station and quite near
the track. The building is
thirty by sixty feet with a gallery twelve by thirty feet and
a tower seven by seven feet.
The chapel has a seating capacity for two hundred people.
It will be plastered inside and
beautifully painted, it i.s also
worthy of note that a bell is to
be provided for calling the
worshippers to the various services.
The contractor is A. McLean,
of Fernie. The formal opening
is to take place oh Oct. 15th, of
which particulars will be given
J. C. Mars Will Fly at Fair.
J. C. Mars, one of the world's
most daring aviators, who fell
into the Atlantic ocean from a
height of (100 feet recently, is
the man who will thrill patrons
of the Spokane Interstate fair,
Oct. Ii to 9, with four daily
flights. The fair management
was notified during the past
week by Glen 11. Curtiss, of
Hammondsport, N. Y,, that his
famous pupil had beeu selected
for the Spokane assignment.
Mars will be seen in Spokane
in a i'iO horse power eight cylinder Curtiss biplane, an exact
duplicate of the big machine in
which he took his high dive. He
will bring two machines with
the idea of quickly substituting
one if the other goes wrong, so
as to avoid any delays. In addition to the aeroplane flights,
a contract has just been closed
with K. C. Herbert, of Boston,
for a huge captive balloon in
which passengers may safely
reach an altitude of 1500 feet,
from which they will have a
view of the surrounding country for forty miles in each direction.
King George's Welcome.
King George has scut a cordial message of welcome to
Marshall Her mos de Fonseca,
who arrived in London from
Paris last night. It is understood that the latter may see
the King at Balmoral, the Royal castle in Scotland.
