Disastrous Floods in Washington—Railroads Demoralized—Portland is Entirely
Cut Off.
Portland, Ore., Nov. 17.—Portland
was cut nil' last night by Hoods (rom
Seattle, Tne nm, Heilingluim, Spokane
and every poiut nortli tnd east ol Kelso,
Wash. The rainstorm that swept over
tho 'north west Pacific coast on Wednesday night lms created a condition
under which railroads are at a stand
still or greatly interrupted. Flooded
rivers have washed out bridges, and
wagon roads are impassable. The only
trains that entered Portland yesterday
wire Irom the south Trains Irom
the north nre stalled in and about
Seattle and Tacoma, and trains from
the east over the Oregon Railroad &
Navigation tracks are stalled by a
landslide at Bonneville, and passengers
will be taken to Portland by boat. A
despatch Irom Kelso, Wash., says that
a raging torrent is rushing through
the lowlands in that vicinity,carrying
away thousands ol dollars' worth of
property. The Cowlitz river which
began to rise rapidly on Wednesday,
jumped to 20-feet above low water
mark yesterday morning, and the big
800-foot drawbridge that spans the
stream between Kelso and Cstlin,
unable to withstand the terrific strain,
broke from its fastenings early yeBter-
dav. Nine steamers have left Portland for the Cowlitz river to recover
bourns of saw-logs that broke loose
near the headwaters of the river. The
Williamette river in Oregan, at points
above Portland, rose rapidly Wednesday and yesterday.
Roughest Trip  Tartar   Ever
Made — Passensers   too
Frightened to be Seasick
Vancouver, Nov. 16.—After running through fourteen days of tbe
heaviest storms in years, during part
ol whi 'h time a smoldering lire broke
out in her cargo, the C. P. R. steamer
Tartar reached port Wednesday night
Irom Yokohama and way ports. The
passage was one of the worst in the
ship's history, and every precaution
was taken to prevent the spread of the
news that the cargo was afire. The
fire was only a small.one and no great
damage was done, but the passengers
on tl.e Btp.in.or were so frightened tt
the heavy seas which washed completely over the ship, that none of
them were seasick. Many times the
passengers were afraid the ship would
flounder, so fierce was the gale. The
cabins were all boarded up to prevent
the wnter coining in, hut even that
protection was unavailing. For three
days the women passengers were not
allowed to enter the lower staterooms,
as tbey were Hooded with waler, There
wns also a large quantity ol water in
tlie lio'd anil as one oi the water tanks
was empty the steamer listed considerably. Ol the 1,100 bales ol silk on
hoard, 75 were water-soaked and the
silk was destroyed. One day, when
the storm was at ils height, the
Tartar made absolutely no headway.
Capt. Davidson kept tlie steamer's
head lacing the wind, ami hy so doing
was able to remain steady, but the
fierce wind prevented any headway
being made. When the steamer ar
rived this morning it was stated that
there was only enough coal in her
bunkers to hist one more day, and if
she bad been unable to make port
when she did there is no telling what
would have happened.
Thc passengers, when  the storm
was at its height, werc so  frightened
that tliey forgot that people  usually
get seasick in rough weather, aud
were quite well.

The hospital ball held on Wednesday night was in every sense of the
word successful. Although the attendance did not equal that, nl lust year
Btill the whole was voted a great, success and tlie arrangements were looked
after admirably and rellccled grunt
credit on those who were instrumental
in carrying them out, The Ladies'
Guild worked hard to ensure the success of the evening and are to be congratulated on the dainty and artistic
manner in winch the Opera House
had been decorated. The supper wns
a .plendid feature of the event and
wbs indeed % credit to thoso who prepared the many dainty and delicious
dishes lor the occasion. An arc light
was suspended in the center ol the hall
and artistically arranged in festoons
and arches were flags and bunting,
the whole effect being very pleasing.
Lounges and easy chairs were placed
here and there in appropriate places
round the hall. The ball room was a
scene of dazzling and glittering beauty,
and a more charming array of beautifully gowned ladies his never been
seen in Revelstoke, The whole effect
was very smart, the sombre evening
dress of the men contrasting welt with
the sheen and sparkle of the ladies.

a Grave Menace.
Vancouver, Nov. 17.—To the numerous depredations which have been
reported as having been committed by
the Hindus in their short sojourn in
this city iu.B iieen added une of sandbagging, indecent assault, and possibly
rape, committed at tlie home ot Mr.
Alfred Laviolette, 983 Homer Street
Thursday evening about 5:30 p.m.
upon ins young bride ol ten months.
Shortly alter (1 o'clock Mr. Laviolette came home, and finding his
house in confusion and his wife not in
sight, he at once made a hearty
search. Alter going through the
whole house he discovered his wife
lying face downwards unconscious
on a pile of old clothes in an unused
room in the upper part of tho house.
When restored to consciousness alio
said that about 5 o'clock two Hindus,
one of whom wore a mask and a felt
hat, and the other a turban, came into
tlie house and demanded money. Sho
snid she hud none, and one ol the
Hindus called her a loul name. Mrs.
Laviolette then picked up a broom
and struck nt the men, and even went
so lar as to throw one of her husband's
boots at them; but they still remained,
culling her loul names. She remembered that she had some money in a
downstairs bedroom, and went- in to
get it to appease them, She was
billowed hy ono of the Hindus, who
felled her to the lloor witii a billet in
his iiiiiid and then kicked her with
his hobnailed boots. After that she
remembers nothing, nor does she
know how she got into the sparo room
upstairs, though it may have been
that she went thero by instinct in
seeking a place ol safety. Tbe right
si.leofherli.ee was black from forehead to chin,and her husband thinks
lhat had he arrived twenty minutes
later she would have been smothered
as she was lying face downward on tl.e
pile of old clothing.

SATURDAY, NOV. 17, 1906
The needs of our city have frequently been disoussed, anil important as is
the question of enlarging and beautifying the city itself there are other
matters every bit as weighty as those
of materially increasing Revelstoke,
and these are the study o( our dutieB
as citizens and what it behoves us to
do to lollil the laws of good citizenship.
The subject is a very wide one und
looked nt (rom many poiots of view it
will be seen how the citizens make
the name ol their city. We, in Revelstoke and the west generally, cooupy
a peculiar position. This city is looked upon as the hub ol the western
interior and the gateway of the Koote-
nays. Our population is cosmopolitan
and we should endeavor to learn and
impress upon tbe minds ol those who
would adopt citizenship obligations
that it is essential (or their own good
and for the good of the city itself to
take a lively interest in all mutters
cunnected with it. Frequently people
do not take sufficient interest iu
utfairs of the city; tbey ure too absorb
ed in their own atl'airs and inclined to
become selfish and to lorget the needs
oi others. In the keen rush lor wealth
people are apt to forget the duties ol
citizenship. The first paramount duty
is to the Creator. We have many
churches in Revelstoke ot all denominations all of which on Sunday sliould
le filled with citizens. The next duly
is to lhe home. Parents have responsibilities in regard to their children und
vice versa. Frequently parents do not
do their duty to tiieir children being
often too absorbed in their business
or pleasure to attend to the homo.
In large cities in most cases ut juvenile criminals the first step towards the
dock is in truancy which begets idle-
new and the distance Irom idleness to
"ther indiscretions is not very great,
Happily we in Ilevelstoke are too enlightened and the rising generation is
sueh that study and learning appeals
t" them very highly. The man nr
boy who shows respect to his elders is
sure to obtain respect Ir others.
Io all municipal affairs the citizens
Bhould take the deepest interest and
not be t I ready to complain ol the
manner in which a city council are
doing their work. It is well known
that a man always thinks he would
make a better show il be had hi*
neighbour's job. The life ol an alderman is not all "beer and skittles" and
he does us u role what be thinks best.
Tbe citizens should co-operate with
the Council ior the (.inhering of tlie
city's inttre-ts. Very frequently political affairs have attributed to the fact
that the ordinary citizens do not take
the interest they .should, lie that us
it ii however co-operation is neeessaiy
(or a city's welfare, and by pulling together not only in business utfairs but
also in social ways we will soon
realize that a city to itand firm uiul
prosperous ibould nol be divided
against itself, out work along the
lines of reciprocity and show those
who come tins way that it is indeed i
pleasure as web as u profitable Investment to be a citiz'i, ol Revelitoke,
d Linn-
will he welcome news to tbe theatre
goers of Ilevelstoke. This year the
company is by far the mst talented
that Mr, Nelson bus nad assembled
with him during bis western tours
and will he seen in a reporloire nl
elassie. nnd modern dramas.
On Monday night Mr. Nelson uill
present here (or the lirst time, an
elebnratc scenic und costumed production, "A Soldier of Fortune." This
is a romantic drama with stirrinji
climax and just suflioie.it comedy lo
keep the audience Irom wearying nl
the heuVy scenes.
Sir Rupert, tho wonderer, arum d
whose adventures the play is woven,
the «ay, careless, fearless freelance,
nnd upholder ol the poor and oppressed, is a very life like character in
Mr. Nelson's hands. Those who saw
Mr, Nelson in "Prince Otto," IiibI
season, may (eel sure of a treat when
Mr. Nelson appears in this great
romantic role.
On Tuesday night, Mr. Clifford
Lane Ilruce will be seen in the title
role of that great western drama, "The
Virginian.'* This is a pretty love
story ol the cowboy country, and is
tilled with dramatic action, with the
picturesque costume ot the cowboy ns
a bnck ground, the audience, can almost feel the breezy atmosphere ol the
west coming over the foot-lights. Mr.
Bruce, possessing as he does, good
looks and a line physique is particularly adopted to this style of play.
Mr. Wm. Yule, nn actor who has
many warm Iriends in tlie west, plays
the comedy parts on both bills.

Chicago, Nov. 15.—James J. Hill,
at a recent the banquet here delivered an extended address upon
Chicago's interest in reoiptooity with
Canada." In tlie coursi ot his address
ho recited figures showing thnt the
trade with the people whom the United
States will be able to reach by the
construction ol the Panama Canal
amounts to only $54,500,000 annually,
while the United States trade with
Canada is over $200,000,000 per annum. He said: "Whatever commercial policy confers tlie greatest
benefits upon the whole continent will
best advance the various parts and this
city would receivo and cooler inestii*
able benefits under a more liberal
trade convention. Canada will in any
event and under any system, be opened
up and highly developed. Would it
then he disadvantageous for us to
share in the products ol the fields of
Manitoba, Alberta and Ssikatobewan.
The time is opportune for a practical
movement towards better trade relations with Canada. There has been
incn using irritation towards our utti-
tude and already tbe hint th.it our
taritf against the Dominion is 49,83
while thai ol Canada against the
United States is 84.83, causes comment and suggests reprisals."
In conclusion lie pleaded lor eilher
a free Irade oi- an umple reciprocity
between the two countries.

"Were you hired to watch 'his
dam, or weren't you?" demanded the
tense voice of Thorpe. "Answer me,
you fool,"
"t«a. ' as," returned tho man, n
shade ol aggsession creeping into his
"Well, you've done it well. You've
cost me my dam, and you'vo killed
8ve men. II thu crew finds out about
you, you'll go over the falls, sure.
You get out of here! Pike! Don't
you ever let me see,your lace again!"
The man blanched as he thus learned of his comrades' deaths. Thorpe
thrust his face at him, lashed by
circumstances beyond his babitual
"It's men like you who make the
trouble," he stormed. "Damn tools
who say they didn't mean to. It
isn't enough not to mean to. They
should mean not to! I don't ask
you to think. I just want you to
do what I tell you, and you can't
even do thnt."
He threw his shoulder into a heavy
blow that reached the dam watcher's
face, nnd followed it immediately* by
another. Then Shearer caught his
arm, motioning the dazed and
bloody victim ol the attack to get
out ol sight. Thorpe shook his
foreman oil with one impatient motion, and strode nway up the river,
his head erect, his eyes flashing, his
nostrils distended.
"I reckon you'd better mosey,"
Shearer dryly advised the dam
watcher; nnd followed.
Late in the afternoon the two men
reached Ham Three, or rather thc
spot on which Dam Throe had stood.
The same spectacle repeated itself
here, except that Ellis, tho dam
watcher, wp-3 nowhere to be seen.
"The dirty whelps," cried Thorpe,
"they did a good job!"
Hc thrashed about here und there,
and so came across Ellis blindfolded
and tied. When released, the dam
watcher was unable to give any account of his assailants.
"They came up behind me while I
was cooking," he said. "One of 'em
grabbed me and the other one kiver-
od me eyes. Then I hears lhe 'shot'
and knows there's trouble."
Thorpe listened in silence. Shearer
asked a few questions. After the
low-voiced conversation Thorpe arose
"Where you going?" asked Shearer.
But .he young; man did not reply.
He swung, with the same long, nervous stride, into the down-river
Until Into that night the three
men—for Ellis insisted on accompanying; them — hurried through the
forest.. Thorpo walked tirelessly,
upheld by his violent but repressed
excitement. When his hut lell from
his head, he either did not notice the
fact, or did not care to trouble himself for its recovery, so he glanced
through the trees bare-headed, his
broad white brow gleaming in the
moonlight. Shearer noted tho fire
in his eyes, nnd from the coolness of
his greater age, counselled moderation.
"I wouldn't stir the boys up," he
panted, (or the pace was very swift.
"They'll kill some one over there,
it'll he murder on both sides."
He received no answer, .\bout midnight they enme to the camp.
Two great lires leaped among the
trees, and the men past .he idea of
sleep, grouped between them talking.
The lesson of twisted timbers was
not lost lo Iheir experience, and the
evening had brought its accumulation
of slow anger ngainst the perpetrators ol the outrage. These men were
not given to oratorical mouthlngs,
but Iheir low-voiced exchanges be-
ttveen the puffings of n pipe led to a
steadier purpose than lhat of hysteria. Even ns the woodsmen joined
their group, they had reached the intensity of execution. Across their
purpose Thorpe threw violently his
"Yon must not go," hc commanded.
Through tholr anger Ihey looked at
him esknnced.
"I forbid It," Thorpe cried.
They shrugged their indid'ereivce and
arose. This was nn affair of caste
brotherhood; and the blood of their
mates cried out to them.
"The work," Thorpo shouted hoarsely. "The work! We must get
these logs  out!   We haven't time!"
But tho fighting forty hnd not
Thorpe's idea. Success meant a
day's work well done; while vengeance slood for a righting of the
realities which had been unrighteously overturned. Thorpe's dry-eyed,
burning,almost mud Insistence on the
Importance of lhe day's task had
not its ordinary force. They looked
upon him from a standpoint opart,
calmly, dispassionately,as one looks
on a petiiluiii child, The grim call
of tragedy had lifted them above
little mundane things.
Then swill ly between the white,
strained lace ol the madman trying
to convince his heart that his mind
had been right, nnd the fnnuticull.V
exalted rlvermen, Interposed the sanity nl Radway. The old jobber Inc-
e(l Ihe men calmly, almost humorously, nnd somehow the very bigness of lhe man commanded attention. When he spoke, his coarse,
good-natured, every-day voice fell
through ihe tense situation, clarifying It, restoring It to the normal.
"Yon fellows mnke ine sick," Haiti
he. "You haven't got tne sense Ooil
guve n rooster. Iiou't you see you
nre playing rlghl In Ihoso follows
hands? What do ynu suppose they
il.Miiiitiili'il Ihem diims for? To kill
our hoys? llon't you believe it for
n uiiniile. They never ili-eiitiied thnt
we wns dry plckln' thn,t finm. They
sent soine low-lived whelp duwn thoro
to hang nur drive, nml by smoke, ll
looks like Ihey were going In suc-
ceiil. thanks in ymi mutton-hoods,
"Spose yoli i:n over mul 'ake 'cm
apart! whnt then? Ymi havaaicrap,
probably ynu  lick  'em."   The    men
growled ominously, but did not stir.
"You whale daylights out of a lot
of men who probably don't know any
more nbout this here shooting ol our
dams thun a hog does about a ruffled shirt. Meanwhile your drive
hangs. Well? Well? Do you suppose
the men who were back of that shoot-
i ing, do you suppose Morrison and
Daly give a tinker's damn how many
; men of their's you lick?  What they
! want is to hang our drive. If they
hang our drive it's cheap at the price
of a lev blnck eyes."
The speaker paused and grinned
good-humorcDy at the men's attentive fives. Then suddenly his own
became grave, and hc swung into his
argument all the imprcssiveness of
his great bulk.
; "Do you want to know how to get
even?" he asked, shading each word.
"Do you want to know how to make
those follows sing so small you cannot hear them? Well, I'll tell you.
Take out Ihis drive! Do it in spite
of them! Show them they are no
good when they buck up against
Thorpe's One. Our boys died doing
llieir duly—the way .a rivorman
ought to. Xow hump yourselves!
Don't let 'em die in vain!"
The crew stirred uneasily, looking
at each other for approval of the
conversion each had experienced.
Iindway, seizing the psychological
moment, turned easily toward the
"Better turn in, boys, and get
some sleep," he said. "We've got
a hard day to-morrow." He stooped to light his pipe nt the fire. When
he had again straightened his back
after rather a prolonged interval, the
group had already disintegrated. A
few minutes later the cookee scattered the bennds of the fire from before
a sleeping camp.
Thorpe had listened non-committal-'
ly to the colloquy. He had .iiaintai-!
ned the suspended attitude of a man
who is willing to allow the trial of
other methods, but who does not I
therefore relinquish his own. At tho!

Before daylight Injin Charley drift-1
ed into the camp to find Thorpe already out. With a curt nod the Indian seated himself by the fire, and,
producing a square plug of tobacco i
and a hnife, began leisurely to Illll
his pipe. Thorpe watched him in si-1
lence. Finally Injin Charley spoko
in the red man's clear-cut, imitative
English, u, pause between each sen-'
tence. I
"I find trail three men," said he.
"Both dam, three men.   One man go
down river.   Those men have    cork-,
boot.   One man have no cork-boot.
He boss."
The Indian suddenly threw his
chin out, his head back, hall closed
his eyes in a cynical squint. As by
a flash Dyer, thc scaler, leered in-1
sulently from behind the Indian's
stolid mask. ,i
"How do you know," said Thorpe.!
For answer, the Indian threw  his;
shoulders forward in Dyer's nervous
"He make Irnil big by the toe,
light by thc heel. He make big
trail on inside." ,
Charley arose and walked, after
Dyer's springy fashion, illustrating
his jioint in the soft wood ashes of
tbe immediate fireside,
Thorpe looked doubtful.   "I believe
you arc right, Charley,"   said   he. I
"But it is mighty little to go on.
You can't be sure."
"1 sure," replied Charley.
He puffed strongly at the heel   of
his smoke, then arose, and without
farewell disappeared In the foresr.
Thorpe ranged the camp impatient- j
ly glancing often at the sky. At
length hc laid Iresh logs on the fire
and aroused thc cook. It was bitter
cold in thc early morning. After a
time the men turned out of their
own accord, at first yawning with I
unsullii-ieiit rest, and them becoming
grimly tense ns their returned wits
reminded them of the situation.
From that moment began the wonderful struggle against circumstances
which has become a by-word among
river-men everywhere.    A    forty-day
drive had to go out in ten.   A fresh-
et hnd to float out thirty    million
(eet of logs.   It wns tremendous; as
even the men most deeply buried in
lhe heavy hours of that time  dimly
realized.   It was epic; as the journalist, by   now   thoroughly   uroused,|
soon succeeded in convincing his od-,
Itors nnd his public.   Fourteen, six-j
leen,   siinie.imes eighteen hours      a;
day, the men ol tho   driving   crew i
worked like demons.  Jams had   no
chance to form.  The phenominnj activity  of the crew  reduced  by  half
the  inevitable  sacking.  01    course,
under the pressure the lower    dam;
had gone out.   Nothing was to    bei
depended upon but sheer dogged grit. -

endured. The men themselves had

men worshipped Thorpe; the idea of
thwarting the purposes ol their comrade's murderers retained its firm
strength; the inmate pride of cast
and craft—the sturdiest virtue of
rivermen—was in these picked men
increased to the dignity of a passion. The great psychological for-es
of a successful career gathered and
made hend against the circumstances
which such careers always arj'ise in ]
Impossibilities were puffed aside
like thistles. The men went at them
headlong. They gave way belore the
rush. Thorpe always led. Not for)
a single instant of tho day nor for
ma,uy at night was he at rest. He
was like a man who bad taken a big
deep breath to reach a definite goal,
and who cannot exhale until thc,
burst of speed be over. Instinctively he seemed to realize that a letdown would mean collapse.
After the camp had lallcn asleep,
ho would often lie awake half of
the few hours of thc night, every
muscle tense, staring at the 'sky.
His mind saw definitely every detail
of the situation as he at last viewed it. In advance his imagination
stooped and sweated to tho work
which his body was to accomplish
the next morsing. Thus hc did ev- i
erything twice. Then at last the
into uneasy sleep. But twice thati
did not follow. Through the dissolving iron mist ol his striving, a,
sharp thought, cleaved like an ar-
tension would relax. He would fall
row, It was that after all he did j
not care. The religion of Success
no longer held him as its devoutestj
worshipper. He was throwing the;
fibres of his life into the engine of
toil, not because of moral duty, but
because of morol pride. He meant j
to succeed in order to prove to him-!
self that he had not been wrong.
The pain of the arrow-wound al-.
ways aroused him from his doze with
a start. He grimly laughed the
thought out of court. To his waking moments his religion was sin-
sere, was real. But deep down in
his sub-consciousness, below his recognition, the other influence was
growing like a weed. Perhaps the!
vision, not the waking, had been
right. Perhaps that far-off beauti-
ful dream ol a girl which Thorpe's
idealism had constructed from the1
reactionary necessities of Thorpe's'
harsh life had been more reel than
his forest temples of his j-uthless
(5od! Perhaps there were greater
things than to succeed, greater
things than success. Perhaps nfter
all, the power that put us here de- j
mands more thon we cleave one to'
the other in loving-kindness than

the the keen, poignant memory of
the dream girl stole into the young-
man's mind, and in agony was immediately thrust forth. He would
not think of her. He hnd given her
up. He had cast the die. For success he had battered her, in the nob-
liest, the loftiest spirit of devotion.
He refused to believe that devotion
fanatical; he refused to believe that
he had been wrong. In thc still darkness ol Ihe night he would rise and
steal to the edge of the dully roaring stream. There, his eyes blinded
and his throat choked with a longing more manly than tears, he would
reach out and smooth the round
rough coats ol thc great logs.
"We'll do it!" hc Whispered      to
them—and to himself.   "We'll do it!
We can't be wrong.   God would not.
have let us!"
Wallace Carpenter's search expedition had proved a failure, as Thorpe
had forseen, but at thc end of the
week, when Ihe water began to recede, the little beagles ran upon a
moss of flesh and bones. Thc man
was unrecognizable, either as an individual or as a human being. The
remains were wrapped in canvas and
sent for interment in the cemetery st
Marquette. Three of the others were
never found. The ln.st did not come
to light until after the drive had
quite finished.
Down nt the booms tho jam crew
received the drive as fast as it came
down. From one crib to another across the broad extent of tho river's
mouth, heavy booms were chained
y< to end effectual Iy to close the
CAit lo Lake Superior. Against these
the. logs enromed softly in the slackened current, and stopped, the cribs
were very heavy with slanting, instead of square tops, In order that
the pressure might be downwards instead of sldewise. This guaranteed
their pernancy. In a short lira*
the surface of the lageon was covered by a brown carpet of logs run-'
ning in strange patterns like windows of fallen grain. Finally, n.ross
thc straight middle distance of the)
river, appeared like agitated sjiccks
leaping back a,nd forth. Thus the
rear came in sight and the drive wns

.".Iter that there would be no hurry,
and he looked around at tho hard,
fatigue-worn faces of tho men about
him, and in the obsession of his
wearied mood he suddenly felt a
great rush of affection for these comrades who had so unreservedly spent
themselves for his affair. Their features showed exhaustion, it is true,
but their eyes gleamed still with the
steady half-humorous purpose of the
pioneer. When they caught his glance they grinned good-humoredly.
All at once Thorpe started and
turned (or thc bank.
•That'll do, boys," he said quietly
to tho nearest group.   "She's down."
It was noon. The sackers looked
up in surprise. Bohind them, to
their very leet, rushed, the soft,
smooth slope of Hemlock Rapids.
Below them, flowed a broad, peaceful river. The drive had passed its
last obstruction. To all intents nnd
purposes it was over.
Calmly, with matter-of-fact directness, as though they had achieved
the impossible; as though they, a
handful, had not cheflited nature and
powerful enimies, they shouldered
peavies end struck into thc broad
wagon road. In the middle distance
loomed the tall stacks of the mill
with thc little board town about it.
j\cross the eye spun the thread ol
the railroad. Far away gleamed the
broad expanses of Lake Superior.
The cook, bad early that morning,
moored thc wnnigan to the bank.
One of the teamsters from town had
loaded thc men's "turkeys" on his
heavy wagpn. The wanignji's crew
had thereupon trudged into town.
The men paired off naturally, and
fell into a dragging, dogged walk.
Thorpe found himself unexpectedly
with Big Junko. For a time they
plodded on without conversation.
Then the big man ventured a remark.
"I'm glad she is over," said he.
"I got a good stake comin'."
"Yes," replied Thorpe indifferently.
"I got most six hundred
comin'," persisted Junko,
"Those men don't know how big
they are," remarked Hie journalist.
"That's the way with most big men.
And that man Thorpe belongs to an- i
othor ago. I'd like to get him to ]
telling his experiences; he'd be a j
gold-mine to mc."
"And would require nbout ns much
trouble to work," laughed Wallace.
"Ho won't talk."
"That's generally the trouble, cun-j
lound 'cm," sighed Hamilton. "The|
follows who can talk haven't anything to say; and those who have-
something to tell are dumb as oys-.
ters. I've got him in though," He j
spread out a roll ol papers on his,
knees. "I got a set of duplicates for [
you. Thought you might like to keep
them. Tho olliee tells me," he concluded modestly, "that they are attracting lots ol attention, but are
looked upon as being a rather clever
sort of fiction."
Wallace picked up the sheet. His i
eyes was at once met by the heading
"So long, buys," in letters n half i
inch ill height, and immediately und-'
ernealh in smaller typo, "said Jimmy Powers, and threw his hat in tho.
face of death."
"It's all there," explained thc jour-!
nalist, "—the jam and the break, and
all this magnificent struggle after-'
wards. It makes a great yarn. I feel
tempted sometimes to help it out a I
little—artistically, you know—but of;
course that wouldn't do. She'd make
a ripping yarn, though, if I could get

Wallace Carpenter was about to re- j
ply that such a motive actually existed, when the conversation was In-1
terrupted by thc approach of Thorpe j
and big Junko. The former looked |
twenty years older after this winter.
His eye was dull, his shoulders droop I
ed, his gait was inelastic. Tho whole
bearing of the man was that of one
weary to the bone.

HE was called Mexie because he was
burn way flown in Mexico fl'J
had been sent many hup-'.ed
mllea to his now home In HarrlKiurg.
Pa., to become tlio pet of :i kind mistress, Mrs. lleffHlingcr.
Mexie was very young when he arrived at liis new home; In tact, was only
4 years uld when lie came to liis untimely end; but In that time he hud
learned so many cute tricks and every
ono was so lomi of iiim thai when he
died his mistress had him stuffed, as
you sir in the picture,
A very pretty bird was Mexle, of
brilliant green,with a bright yellow head,
three scarlet feathers at the edges of
tils wings and on his tall of brilliant
blue. He was extremely proud of his
appearance, and used to say often,
"Isn't Mexle pretty?"
Uut though ho was so proud of his
looks, MexlQ was not very fond of taking a imiii, to keep his beautiful feathers clean, Indeed, he never would get
into his tub himself; but when Mrs. Heffelflnger bathed him he always splashed
around and hived it, saying each time
after the washing was over, "Pretty
boy! Pretty buy.'"
It was odd Mexle hated his tub, becuuse ho was really a very dainty bird,
and could never stand the leasl speck of
dirt on his feet,
He was nlso very particular In hla
table manners—always picking the
seeds from berries and never touching
any fruit that had even a tiny speck In
lt. When he shelled peanuts or other
nuts he put the shells in neat piles.
But best of all did he like to eftt from
hla souvenir spoon uf lhe Spanish-American War.
"Please hnnd me my spoon," he would
call. Then he would hold it in one claw
while his mistress put In food, which he
carried, without spilling, to his mouth,
The boys teased Mexle so much that
he did not like them. One day Mrs.
Heffelflnger came home from a trip
"Oh, Carrie, the naughty boyB! the
naughty boys!" he repeated again aud
Later, one of the neighbors said she
hnd seen the boys at lhe window tormenting lhe poor parrot.
Mexle made friends with every one,
even with the cats and dogs of the
neighborhood, who tried to catch him
when he was In his cage in the yard.
Instead of being scared, .uexle alwaya
cried, "Ah! ah! nice doggie!" spreading
his wings and making a great fuss over
hie cruel foes. He also loved the gold
lish, which he called "pretty little fish!"
Mexle was most affectionate. Each
evening at the same time he would begin to call "Ellis! Ellis!" for Mr. Hef-
felllnger, and keep It up till his master
came In. Then how Mexle laughed, and
showed his joy by flapping his wings.
When his mistress felt ill, Mexie seemed to know It, He would perch beside
her so quietly as to scarcely move when
she lay on the lounge, never attempting
to play until she opened her eyes once
When callers came. Mexle never forgot to call, "Good-bye, come again," and
always said politely, "good night" and
Often he would shake hands with the
guests or call, "Come and kiss me,
please, come and kiss Mexie. Mexie will
cry If you don't." And straightway be
would hide his face under his left wing
and pretend to cry.
One evening Mrs. Heffelflnger asked
her husband to bring some bread from
the cellar. On his return Mexie called,
"Have you got the loaf?" AnothT time
he asked, "Carrie, are you going to
wash dishes?"
Mexle loved to sing, and knew "Little
Drops of Water," "Tramp, Tramp,
Tramp, the Boys Are Marching," and
many other songs,
I'm afraid, thl igh, like many singers,
he was jealous, for one day whu; r.ilry,
the ottnary, waa caroling away, Mexio
began to SCOld and grumble,
"Oh! naughty Mexie!" said Mrs Heffelflnger, 'TSl.ame on you, when Fairy
Is singing so sweetly."
At this .Mexie pulled his feathers down
over his nose with his foot and said,
"Excuse me! Excuse me! Excuse me!"
Never after that could he be made to
say "Excuse me."
Mexie's mistress had a very lovely
garden and dearly did he lovo to get
uut ihere and swing on hla trapeze. He
never attempted to Ily away, but usefl
to call, ' ^retty flowers, pretty flowers!
Ah! Ah!" (
One Jay wh^n ont in the yard he heard
ihe neighbor's child ery. and called to
lis mistress. "Mary's crying. Carrie!"
But .Mexie loved best of all tn play.
He would He flat on his back In the
cage and throw a wooden ball about two
inches lu diameter and a ehit.a egg from
one foot to another. Sometimes he
would throw his ball far off In the cago
and run for it, laughing hard.
THn he hnd a little bell that he liked
to ring, and a red doll cord holder with
which he amused himself by the hour.

NEVER were Ave pigs moro

You remember the story you had last
week, do yuu not, about Mother Pig and
her children escaping from the home
pen and starting out to see tho world?
About their starting out to travel on a
railr ad handcar and their narrow escape from being run over by a fast
night express? And about their wandering Into a farm and prowling about
the Sarnyard to see what might be seen?
It waa whiie they were doing this, yuu

•And after that Mother Pig carefully
(avoided f rms and barnyards. So
they wand-red about pretty hungry

away from the railroad track, for
their hopo, you remember, was that
they might fortunately And the handcar back on the track again and
might continue their travels on IL.
At last, when darkness began to

and the next Instant, deserting the

j scurried away as fast as their legs
[would take them.
Thej happened to enter a very fashionable avenue, on which they presently encountered a pompous man
'with a blue uniform, gilt buttons and
ta wicked-looking club.
•'Children, children!" groaned Mother Pig, "see lhat awful looking creature? What shall we do? oh, how
[foolish I was to bring you away from

* Billy was ready with a good sug-
I'll tell you. mother, let's go Into
the big house yonder, where the door
stands bo hospitably open and BUch a
' stream of light Is shinlnp out."
' Anywhere to escape the policeman,
for that was what he was; So they
scrambled up the Immaculate marble
eteps into the luxurious hallway of the
elegant house.
It  happened,  somehow,  that no one
was there to dispute their entrance.
And how should they ever gueas that
) they would not be as welcome here as
^they had been at  the pigpen where
they had spent the pr-vlous night?
Delighted with the hallway, they
wandered Into the drawing room,
where many candles were ablaze with
lights and many mirrors reflected bo
many apparently real and live pigs
that Mother Pig waa filled with Joy
and squealed a friendly "How do you
do? This la aa unexpected aa It ia delightful!"
Still not a human being in sight!
And the reason was that a family
wedding waa going on in a neighboring church, taking all of the household away except the butler and the
cook, who Just at that moment were
out at the back sharing some wedding
cake with the couk next dour,
Peggy and Eliza cuuld only murmur
a faint "Wee! wee! wee!"—they were
so dazzled by what they saw; but Hilly
and Jacky, without stopping to oh! and
ah! disappeared at once through an
open doorway to explore the real of
the houBe.
All at once there was a aqueal of delight, followod by another.
"Oh! Jacky and Billy have found
something Interesting!" exclaimed
Mother Pig. "Come, Peggy and Eliza!"
And, hurrying helter-skelter out of
the drawing room, thev followed the
direction of the squeals they had heard,
finding Billy and Jacky at last In front
of a huge thing with black and white
teeth nnd a stool.
Mother Pig raised her noae and touched the teeth, then shrieked with mingled terror and delight at the flood of
sounds that came from them. (It waa a
piano, you understand.)
Then what did venturesome Billy do
but clamber up on the stool, whence
he found he could easily reach the
"teeth" with hla sturdy forefeet. And
what sounds he produced from them!
And what thrills went through Mother
Pig and the oilier three children, fairly
Intoxicating them ao that before they
knew ll they were circling and pirouetting about on the floor In a aort of
And not one of them In the least
dreamed of Interruption, till of a aud-
den. like a clap of thunder, came the
exclamation: "My gracious! What 'ave
we 'ere?" from the doorway.
There was the butler, amazement
written all over hla stupid English face!
Mother Pig set up a shriek of terror
and rolled off the sofa where she had
thrown herself down to recover breath.
Billy, Peggy and Eliza collapsed into a
pitiful heap on the door, while poor
Jacky, tumbling panle-stricrc>m from oft
tha Btool, caught a leg between tha
pedals and broTte It, alas!
"Sho! Sho! Sho! You dirty beasts!"
roared the buller waving his arms
about In a very threatening manner.
Now, If Mother Pig had only known It,
Mr. Butter would not for the world have
touched h^r, b»st ho should soil hla Immaculate livery, which had been donned
especially for the wedding reception to
follow the cfremony at the church.
But nut knowing It, and being In a
frenzy uf fright, she let forth an ear-
splitting squeal and bolted past the ap-
palling buthr to the open front door.
Close at her heels flew Peggy, bumping
against the butler who, in his precipitate retreat, mumbled over squealing
Blly ond Eliza.
By the time lie had recovered his wits
all the pigs were gone-all, that Is, except poor, crippled Jacky.
"Well, HI do declare!" exclaimed th**-
butler, '"e's a cunnln' lookln' beast, su
'e Is! And, poor thing, is leg Is broke!"
(For he was a Boft-nearted fellow.)
And, procuring a large newspaper,
he wrapped it about Jacky and picking
him up bodily, carried him squealing to
the basemen!. And there bo nursed the
broken leg so that It would do to limp
ahout on. at least. And then, being
sueh a soft-hearted fellow, he mid hla
master about Jacky, and got him to
send the little fellow to his country
place, where Jacky may be seen any
flay alive and well.
The rest uf the family, sad to say,
did not share Jacky's good fortune Although in the darkness they gul separated, by morning they found themselves nnlted-ln the Pound!
But their days In the Pound were few
In number and full of apprehensions.
Sure enough, tbey disappeared one
morning, and the eats told the dugs
they heard the m*»n Bay "Those pigs

By Polly Evans
, wna very popular in Imr
home (own, and even while
she wus away at Mount
Pleasant Seminary, ton miles dis-
liuit, she kept in close touch with
her friends there.
This was very pleasant for both
herself nnd her home friends, but it
involved their sending her every
single week Imlf n dozen invitations,
nmre or less, some of whioh she felt
sho really must accept; nt least, the
unes for Saturday night, und occasionally for Friday night | nnd that,
of course, meant thnt every week's
cod, without fail, Bertha Damon was
tin* Hrst one to usk the principal for
permission to "go home over Sunday."
"Xow, Bertha," suid the nrincipal
nt lust ono day, "this will never do.
Your parents put you here to study,
us I understand. And this thing of
going homo every week nnd attending parties is ruinous on your grades
as well ns your work. Don't nsk my
permission to go home for a month."
At which a very aggrieved and
tearful Bertlin departed from the
office and sought consolation in the
sympathy of her chum. Monday-
morning's mail brought a letter from
Tom Murphy.
"Dear Bcrthn: We Murphys, if
we aren't Irish, ought to be, so Boss
nnd Annie are going to give a Shamrock party next Saturday night. And
you'll he sure to come home this
week, won't you ? 1 went to the station to meet you last Friday. Why
didn't you como? I'll be your escort
to the party, if 1 may.       TOM."
Tears gushed 'n torrents from
Bertha's eyes, as she wrote:
"Dear Tom: 1 can't! Mr. Smith
says I mustn't ask for permission
for a whol» month. I'm brokenhearted. But you'll have a good
lime, anyhow. 1 suppose you'll ask
Helen MoCrncken, Yours, a prisoner of despair BERTHA."
Back came this brief answer:
"Dear Bertha: Smith's a wretch.
Come anyhow Friday, and it'll turn
out all right. I'll be there to meet
you. TOM."
Bertha sought out ber chum and
showed her the note.

to thc occasion was the fact that the

sequence, the burning question on
every tongue was "Which school will

Whicli school would get the coveted

would capture it, their respective
seniors having devised by  far  the
best comic costumes of the party.
"The next prize, for the best comic
makeup," said Mr. Murphy, "was

everybody found himself not only in

but slipping, sliding down to nowhere, jammed against some one below and some one on each i 'de, and
being jammed by some one above

Frightened screams penetrated
the air, and were answered by equally terror-stricken cries from the
guests in the other rooms.
"Lord, snve us!" quavered one.

Philip is a good student in
most branches of study. But
geography is his blackbear!
"Where is Warsaw?" asks
his teacher.
"In India," answers Phil,
and then wonders what he has
said to bring a derisive grin to
every schoolmate's face.
Now, if his teacher only had
time to teach him geography by
means of puzzles, as Uncle
Harry did pn St. Patrick's Day,
he would get along amazingly
well, for Phil is passionately
fond of solving puzzles, and
anything he learns in that way
—even a geographical fact—
sticks to his memory for good.
What Uncle Harry did on
St. Patrick's Day was to draw
six picture puzzles for Phil and
leave him to discover what six
places in Ireland they represented.

done, even lor those ol us who
Indulge In It only upon rare but
,. ecstatic occasions, ts to teach us
' how to adjust veils In a practical yet
becoming way Ior driving and trolley-

Henceforth we may go upon such
rides as present themselves without
fear of arriving at our destination with
hair from which every vestige of curl
has departed, and which straggles in unsightly elflocks.
Why on earth no one Invented thc automobile veil in some one-or several-
of Its many forma a lew years ago,
when the trollcylng fever raged hotly
among us, Is one of the incomprehensible mysteries of fashion.
The more elaborately conslructed veils
—they of several parts, fitted together
with the precision and nicety of delicate
machinery - are seldom worn for anything but automoblllng proper; but tho
two veils-one the same cobwebby mesh
that everybody wears Ior shopping and
calling and on a thousand and one occasions, the other a larger, more closely
woven thing—aro wonderfully satlsfac-
The mesh veiling Is put on In the usual
fashion, fastened ln front at the edge
of the brim and brought back lo be securely knotted or jillined at the back.
The heavier veil-usually of chiffon or
of Liberty silk, or of Borne one of Ihe
crepes which ure an ethcriallzed form
of the usual crepes-Is broiifc-ht across
the top of the hat. deftly eased about
the back (if the head and tied, either In

More often than anj one color brown
is worn, following tl.e fashlo.i, no
doubt, of the brown niallnc • lth
which Paris has bedecked the bandeaux of hats of my nnil every color.

ONCE upon a lime   there was a
rich woman wl j breakfasted In
bed. At 11 o'clock   she   put a
wrapper ovor   her   nightgown,
tied a lace scarf on her head and received her friends.
"I haven't had Mine tro huve my hair

A German once asked an American
girl's permisaioi) to bring her a promlaed

Later ho naively remurked: "Until 1

women wore dressing gowns until 3
o'clock In the afternoon."
JI Is experience wus perhaps a little unfortunate, yet the number fa appalling of
women leu-ling lelsureiy liven, whu think
It unnecessary lo loos fresh and trim
about tlie house early in the day.
There are other daintinesses, however,
besides those of dr-.'*H and person that
go a long way toward making or marring Iho comfort of a home. It Is easier
sometimes to contend with u big up-

The girl who comes lo stay in your
room ovor night, and haven a tiny trail
nf powder along lhe top nf ihe drestilng
tabic, who forgets the Imlr in her brush,
and who picks up your towel by mistake, may be one of the dearest people
In the world, but you would Just u little

"Iio they nlwnys give ynu rlenn napkins here?" -queried a small child on being taken In a restaurant for the tirst
time, and then  he ndded, reflectively,
"i. wonder if tb y wash 'em or Just
preBs 'em." There was a whole life
history back of thut childish problem.
It doesn't lake ten minutes more in
tho twenty-four hours to clear the
table after each meal, leaving only
the centrepiece, with a bowl of fruit
or vase of llowers. i'et in bow many
houses do you see the table laid for
the next meal us soon as one Is finished.
It is Just aa easy to light tbe candles, to get the linger-bowla and lay
out the comfortable amount of small
silver for two people aa tt la for six.
Yet how often you hear 'It said, "Oh,
there's nobody here tonight! Let's
don't bother."
And bathroom daintinesses! A volume might be written on the Individual rights of soaps and lotions and
sponges; on how much the comfort of
the whole family depends upon the
tmiughtfulncaa und care of each individual.
I knew a man who was noted among
womenklnd for hla fastidiousness.
Hc purchased for himself a flesh-
bruah of a peculiar pattern, put lt in
a particular corner of tho bathroom
consucruted to his own small specialties und went on hie way rejoicing.
There came to that house to stay
over night a woman possessed of a
baby who hud but lately arrived at
the point when he could bs bathed ln
the big tub.
Later tho mother went to ber hoat-
css and said with amlilni calm: "1
wlah you would tell me where A. got
that lovely flesh brush I used It to
scrub the baby all over, and he was
ho delighted that I would like to buy
one Just Uko it."
"Tell her," said -.ne young man,
when thlB remark reached nil ears,
"that I'M sell her that one al half

Commission in the complaint ol the
Kaslo board of trade against Discrimination of rates by the C. P. R., Nelson
& Fort Sheppard railway, and Kaslo
& Slocsn railway, In lavor ol Rossland
and Nelson, has made an order rectifying thc discrimination.
The order provides that on stations
on Britiih Columbia Soutnern.Colum-
bia & Kootenay, and Columbia &
Western railways, cast ol Nelson, including Procter, and west of Nelson,
including West Robson, Trail and
Rossland, Nelson rates shall apply on
C. P. R. traffic, while Ic stations on
the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway,
Nelson rates shall also apply. In
traffic originating south of the international boundary to ports ol call on
Kootenay lake by vessels connected

Towns in State of Washington
Portland, Ore., Nov. 16.—Never
since tlie white man came haa the
state ot Washington suffered from
Biich a storm as raged last night. The
storms, wind and rain, which Ior the
past week have wrought hatoc with
"oast shipping, yesterday swept inland
and is venting an unheard ol fury
upon the whole state, especially the
Puget Sound country and exfendB even
to the north ol Oregon and the panhandle ol Idaho. Railroads out of
Tacoma and Seattle are demoralized,
train service to Portland and Vancouver. B C, only Irom the latter city
being maintained. The creek-, rivers,
and streaniB in the Cascades are roaring torrents. On Puget Sound, Snohomish, Sumner and Auburn are under water. In central Washington
floods are raging. Here small damage
has beeu done except that electrio
light and street car service are out of
commission. Three hundred square
iniles near Tacoma are Hooded being
the result of melting snow Irom the
Cascades. Communication with the
interior of Washington is cut off,
many villages being completely washed
away. Bridges, tracks, telegraph poles,
houses and property have been destroyed and the loss of life is considerable. Homeless, helpless, suffering
from hunger and exposure, and in
hourly dread that the rushing waters
will overwhelm Ihem, thousands of
residents ol the fertile valleys near
Seattle are camped on the hills, with a
few personal effects saved Irom the
Hood. All round them ie nothing but
a vast expauae ol water, with here and
there submerged houses, floating trees
and household furniture. Owing to
interrupted train service and telegraph
lines being destroyed, more particulars
are not forthcoming.

Sooner or later says tue London
Times, we must give these great com
niunities a share ol powers in our
foreign affairs, because we must aho
give them a share of responsibility in
those affairs. We cannot ask them to
accept responsibility without power
and without responsibility they will
inevitably tend to involve us in dangerous international questions and so
to endanger, however unintentionally,
the peace ol the Empire. To design
and provide that machinery is one ol
the cliief tasks of the imperial statesmanship ol the future. It is a task
which must be accomplished and that
soon, or it will be too late.
