MAN ACQUITTED OF MURDER
Ki.montos, June H.—Victor Houde
lormerly of Ihe Winnipeg fire brigade,
charged with killing George Woods in
a shack on April 4th, in the eaBt end
ot Edmonton, is again a Iree man.
The jury, alter being out fitly minutes
last night, brought in a verdict ot "not
guilty" ot manslaughter. Judge Scott,
in his charge to the jury, slated that
there could be no other conclusion
than that the accused hud killed
Woods. The only question to decide
was whether he was justified in the
act or not. A feature of the trial was
the statement made by the prisoner on
his own behalf when he admitted that
he and Woods had quarrelled, and
tbat be had struck Woods with a chair.
The act, he claimed, however, to have
been in self delence, after Woods had
thrashed him and threatened to "fix
him.'

CORRESPONDENCE
School Matters.
Editor Mul.-llK.U.,...
Having Been in your paper ol recent
date, that our esteemed High School
Principal (Mr. Sissions) has resi ned,
I thought it might be a good time to
ask a few questions concerning Bcliool
matters in general. We have elected
a Bcl.ool board to manage the educational affairs ol our city and it is now
a question as to whether it amounts
to "management or mismanagement."
For some time it has boen Buspected
matters wcro not running quite
smoothly with this august body and
this " board o! management ?" has
allowed more than one good teacher
to leave our Bchool Ior no apparent
good rcrsou, but ae a parent having
children attending hoth the public
and high school, I feel that it is high
lime to enter a protest against a lew
matters affecting our interests.
I have always uiideistood Mr.
Sissons liked Ids work here and I
know whereof I speak when I say l.e
lulds the oonlidonco and respect ol the
children under his oaie. Thereloro 1
do not consider it is in the best interests ot our school to allow a competent
principal (as ho has proven himself tt.
bu) to give up bis work here, il it is his
intention tn cuntinue touching as a
proli.sjii.ii. and il it is not alroady too
hue, a.) effort should bu made to retain
his services. KevelBtoke has reason to
bc proud ol its lohonll and teaching
staff, ranking lavorably wllh the belt
in the province, but il a high standard
ol excellence ia to be maintained, surely the best way is to retain the services
ol the teachers who have been tried
and found conscientious and capable.
We cannot afford to be making experiments with teachers every term, it
puts the pupils out in their work and
olten hall a term is lost " getting
acquainted" as it were with different
methods,
I think I have the opinion ol all the
parents sending children to the high
school aud it is the earnest wish ot
both pupils and parents, that Mr.
Sissons be retained il possible. This
trustee board by thc-way lias no
children attending tbe high school,
consequently one can quite see how
their interests are not directly touched
in the matter, nevertheless it is up to
them now to take this matter up and
ask Mr, Sissons to reconsider his
decision. II they are in any doubt as
to my statement concerning tl.e wishes
of the parents having children attending the high school, let them take a
list and visit these parents and friends
for themselves.
A PARENT.
[We learn, on going to press, that
tho school trustees have nii.de arrange
ments to retain tlie services ol C. li,
Sissons as principal ot the High
school and that a suitable assistant
will bo engaged. The trustees have
acted wisely in this decision, and
Rivclstoku cannot afford to lose men
who have given satisfaction to parents
and pupils alike unless tlie reasons
are ol a serious nature which demand
their retirement Misunderstandings
will occur, but wo leel that general
satislactii.il will be the result ot Mr,
Sisiuni' being retained.—En. ]
TENT MISSION
The meetings in the tent have been
well attended in spite ot tl.e unfavorable weather the past week. Tl.e use
ot a fine electric lantern in the song
service and illustrutid hymns is
greatly enjoyed. During the week
Rev. Mr. Hatt, Supt. ol Missions, and
tbe evangelist, have been takng the
service alternately. Mr. Hatt has
gone to Nelaon over Sunday. This
evening there will be a tree illustrated
lecture on the lite ol Christ. The
pictures are ol the finest possible pro-
duction and the lantern with its
powerful arc light makes them show-
up beautifully on the screen. Tbe
lecture will begin at 8:30.

J. Johnstone, as president, tuck the
chair a.id calltd lhe meeting tu order,
stating that the imp..riant nature uf
the business which there was fur
discussiun. He Baid that thc question
ot tilling the position of secretary-
manager was an extremely important
one, since the whole business ol the
Exchange was practically devulred
upon his shoulders and tbe success ot
the organization depended largely
.1 not entirely upon a thoroughly capable head. W. J. Brandritb then read
the applicatiuns Ior the position,
which were very numerous and were
received Irom all parts ut the Dominion. Nearly forty applications were
received. These were lully discussed
and their respective qualifications
reviewed. By this nn ana tl.e number
was reduced to a lew und alter much
discussiun, pro a -Vm, it. was moved
by Dr. Wade and eecon led by Mr.
Wilson that T. Morley, Nelson, application Ior secretary manager be accepted and that he be notified tu ilia,
effect.—Carried.
Mr. Brandritli then explained and
reportid regarding the incorporation
of the Exchange, staling that urratigi -
inentB ha I been made for tliis to he
carried out. The expenses ol ihe past
month were passed and a rc.-o'ntion
adopted approving of Mr. Brandrilh's
actions in the matter. General luisi-
iusb was then discussed and die work
for tbe season laid out.
During the alternoon session a wire
was ice lived frum Mr. Morley, who
has been intormed by telegraph ol his
appointment as secretary-manager,
stating that he could nut are-apt the
position, A long dismission ensued as
to who should he appointed, L. M.
Hagar, late ol Fairbanks & Co, being [ "ess in their futur
finally chosen. Mr. Hagur iB well
known in the Northwest and is in
every way suitable fur the position.
Tbe session was taken up with discussing tl.e season's work ami the
arranging of prices, the secretary
manager being instructed to get in
touch with all the local associ.ittons
to see what they had got. Tlie next
meeting of directors will tie held on
Saturday morning, June 20, and tlie
local association will meet the same
night at which Messrs. Brandritb.
Johnstone and Kipp will deliver interesting lectures on Iruit growing. Thc
vice pre8ide.it, H. E. R. Smythe and
the secretary manager will arrange for
suitable olliee premises. Alter discussing freight and express rates, and
packing, etc., tl.o meeting terminated.

MELISSA MAYO'S SPECIAL PROVIDENCE
CHAPTER I
HILANDER BAXTER f»at
at the antiquated desk In
hli private offloe reading
a fatter -which he had Juit
received ln the morning
mall. PhUand**i private
office waa almoat aa narrow ta hla mind, and waa
devoted to the same pur-
poie, the calculation of
Intemt and tht figuring
ol percental* Hla wall-
worn talt hat, of the crop
of '«. reposed on the top
of tht desk, and hli cow-
hlde-ehod feet wart ele-
vattd to a poaltlon beside
It. Tht letter ht waa
poring over waa wrttttn
on paper bearing tht
nrlnt-d head, "Office of
Bamei A Snyder, Pen-
aion Attorneys, Boston."
and read aa followi:
"Dear Uncle:-Snyder
thinks the Mayo claim will go through all right. He says
It would have Uen pretty ahaky It It hadn't been for
them affidavit! you got from Doc. Ballty and tht rest.
How you got 'em I don't ate. Snyder aaya that Uphe-
lefa only eervln' for three monthi in tht war and then
not dyln' for ten year afttrwardB makes tt hard to prove
thnt he got bia rheumatism ln the army, hut he thlnka
the affldavlta will fix it all right Snyder's a keen one
und pretty level-headed, ao I gueaa lt will do to bank
on. There'i ao much back pension due now that if the
claim goes through, Mellssy '11 havo a good-alaed wad.
"What are you op to, anyway? 1 know you ain't In It
for your health. Why don't you give a fellow a tipt
Voiir loving nephew, ANTl.
rhtlander read thia epiatle three Hires, puckering
his eyes thoughtfully behind hla apectaclea and twitting
hln grilled chin beard Into a point. Anty Taylor-tha
nlcknami being a contraction of Anthony-was a nephew
after hla own heart. He had early dlacemed symptoms
of prnmlrie n the young man, and Md been mat rum en tal
In getting him the poaltlon he held In the Boaton attorneys* oft'ce. But, Anthony being a prospective heir,
Mr. Baxter did not think a tip advisable under iht
present  circumstances,
lie pondered over the letter for aome time, philosophizing perhaps on the efficacy of a note of hand In
soueerlng affidavits out of unwilling physicians, and
then, removing both feet and hat from the desk, stood
upon the first and covered hla bald head with the second,
and  left   the  office.
Tin minutes later be wns walking slowly betwwi
the box hedges up the path that led to Melissa Mayo'n
front dnor. When he retched the turn that led around
the house—only strangers and clergymen call at front
doors In Orham-he paused a moment to look at ths
ho.is.' and Ite surroundings.
Ellphalet Mayo had faJlen heir t-) a fine estate and
some monpy when his father died, back In the fifties
But Ellphalet hail succeeded In getting rid of the most
of the money before he In turn passed away, and hli
widow, with the able assistance of her brother-in-law.
Nnpoleon, nad spent the reat. There was llltle left
now but the farm itself.
But the farm was not to be sneezed at, and that was
precisely what Philander was "cal'latin" " as he stood
there A gocd-slzed orchard and garden, seme acres of
cranberry swamp, badly run to weeds and buBhea, but
capable of being wade profitable; pasture land, cornfield and the houae and barn; that wm the Iht ae Mr.
Baxter itemlred tt. A pretty good home for a man to
tpend hla old age ln, and the window wai a rather pleas-
"Hello, Napl" he aaid, rather tartly. "What art
you up ter thli mornln'?"
"Oh, nawthtn' much. I wu Jctrt wondtrln' If 'two*

I over remembered a much hotter spill. Klndar dry
fer vegetables, ain't It?"
"Humph!" grunted Mr. Baxter, glancing toward ths
gardsn. "Don't ie«m ttr bc too dry fer weeds. Why
In tlmt don't yer clear out that patch?"
"Wa-a-l, I have be'n goin' ter fer sotns tlmt, but ant

'Ont thing; tr 'nothtr yer granny! I tell yer what
'Mi, Nap Mayo, if thli place b'longed ter me you'd have
ttr work harder 'n yer do now. Settln' round all day
and sunnln' yerstlf like a ret. I snum If I wouldn't bs
ashamed of myself!" *
Mr. Mayo'i dignity waa touched.
"I dunno 'i my avttln' 'round It any of your afaln,
Philander Baxter!" he observed.
"I dunno 'i 'U«, either -not yet," aaid Mr. Baxter.
Then he entered by tho back porch and slammed tht
door, leaving the namesake of the mighty Corslcan to
speculate on what the last two words of his remark
might mean. It wan it subject which required consideration, and Napoleon sat down on the wash-bunch
again In order to do It Justice.
Mr. Baxter's knock at the back door wai answered
hy Mrs. Mayo herself. Melissa Mayo was all that a
widow should be, being "fair, fat" snd the rest of ths
quotation,
"Why, haw dy'do, Mr. Baxter!" ahe exclaimed. "I'm
reel glad ter see yer. Walk right Inter the dlnln'-
room."
Philander complied, and after helping hlmaelf to a
seat In the best armchair and "hanging up his hat on
the floor,"  proceeded to business.
"Mellsay." he asked, "yer ain't heard nawthln' more
from that pension,  have yei?"
"Mo, Philander, I ain't. Yer don't s'pose"—there
waa a tremor in the widow's voice—"yer don't a'pose
there'a any chance of my not glttln' It-do you?"
"Well, yer can't tell. Anything ter do with gov'ment
ls mighty onsartln. However, 1 reckon them affidavits
I got '11 fetch It through."
"Laud of Goshen! I hope there won't bo no hitch
anywhere, 1 do need that money somethln' dreadful.
What with taxee and groe'ry bills and things Uke that,
aeem's If I should go distracted. I should never have
thought of a pension If it hadn't been fer you, Mr. Baxter. You've heen so kind ln all this I dunno what I can
ever do ter thank yer."
Mr. Baxter waved the thanks away with the air
of a philanthropist to whom such manifestations of
gratitude were everyday trifles.
"You're welcome," he grunted. "Now-«r—Mellssy,
I come up this mornln' ter have a leetle talk with you
on—on—er—a matter of business, so ter apeak."
The widow looked a little alarmed, but she said,
"Yes,  MV.  Baxter?"  Inquiringly.
"Yes. Pact ls, Mellssy, you need a man round this
plnce."
"Well, there's Napoleon."
"Napoleon!" acornfully. "I mean a man with some
hosa sense. Fact Is, Mellssy, I oilers liked you. You're
a good, likely woman and a worker, I don't know'e I
ever see a better worker 'n you be. Er-er-Mellssy,
how'd yon like ter be Mrs.  Banter?"
The widow turned red, then •-«*• and then red again.
"Why—why, Mr. Baxter?" ahe gasped, "What do
yer   mean?"
"Jest what I say. You've got a good place here, and
you need a man ter run lt I've got some money ln
the tank and I need somebody ter make a home fer
me. Of course, yer understand I think a heap of yer—
love yer better'n anything on alrth, and-and all that,
yer know," he added, as hn afterthought.
Mrs. Mayo was so entirely taken aback by the unexpectedness of ths proposal that she sat for a moment

M'r. Baxter snorted, Napotsrm wns the one Item on

or two speechless, trying to get her thoughts Into some
sort nf order.
"Well, what d' yer pay?" Inquired the ardent lullor,
briskly.
Then the widow Mid what others have said before,
Ihot.rh nol always wllh so much reason:
"l:ut thls-ls-ls io sudden, Mr, Baxter!" she stammered
The suddenness of It had not struck Philander before,
hul he w..s willing tr. allow nnvthlng In reason.
"Well I dunno hul *lls." he said. "Tell ver whal
I'll ilu, Mellssy, a'pose yer think I. over till ler-morrer
or ter-nlglll and then drop me a line.    How u that do?"
Fill! trembling Melissa agreed to this arrangement,
and Mr. Ruler got ut. to gu.

However, yer .-an write me ter-nlght. Oood-mornhV:

The la.t remark showed that Mr. Baxter considered
It   already   settled.
N.poleon wm still sealed on the wash-bench when
Philander cnn, out of the house, but the mm of bual-
neas did not deign to notice (ilm. Mr. Hayo'i medlla-
lloni nun have been absorbing, for h.i had allowed hli

had gone, he aat these, icralchlng hli ehln and drawing
ihsmt-mlndedly at tin d.ad pipe. Then he go. up, put
on hli hat and mo?**! off toward the village. He hurried a little, too-an almoit unbelievable action.
He walked on down the main street, pait the poal-
ofllce, pait Mr. Baxter", real eitate offlce, past Web
gaundar'i billiard saloon, until he oame to (he road
which led to th* ihere. Town thli he .limed and
slopped at a lillle houie by lhe ilde of the road. Thli
wu where Abljeh Colton lived, and Abljah hlmialf
op«l«1 lhe door In answer to Napoleon's knock.
All the gossip In town, beginning wllh Matilda Bui-
teed and ending with Mn. Jerry Burgess, were lorry
for Abljah Colton. They all said (hey didn't im how
'Blje Colton made out ter earn a llvin*. Ao Min Bus-
teed fee'lngly put It:
"He'o got more leetle pullerln" irons In the fire, and
.hey don't none of 'em amount ter nawthln'. Leeds

clammln* that time er year! Beats me how he keeps
ou. er the porrhuuse!"
As Abljah, being close-mouthed about his affairs,
didn't see fit to enlighten Miss Busteed, the lady bads
fair to be "beat"' for the term of her natural life.
"Hollo, Nap," said AMJah. welcoming his caller.
"Come In find set down. What's the matter? If '.wai
anybody else but you, I thould think he'd been runnln'."
Mr. Mayo was too full of tho Importance of his news
to notice the sarcasm.
" 'Blje Colton," he raid, solemnly. "I want ter oak
you sunthln' Important Be you thlnkin' of raarryln'
Mellssy?"
Mr. Colton was surprised. Ha sat down ln a chair
rather suddenly and  whittled.
"Well, I snum, Nap!" he said, nfter a pause. "That's
what tho lawyers would call a leadln' question, ain't it?
What are yer drlvln' at?*'
" 'Cause all I've got ter say is," continued Napoleon,
wagging his forefinger solemnly, "that If yer be, yer
went tor brace up nnd ask her. Philander Baxter wai
up ter the house Just now poppln1 the question himself."
"Who?    Phllan-    Oet out!"
'Hnnut Lord'i truth! Heard him rr.yiclf. Said
she waa a likely woman and i> worker, and that he
wanted her ter be Mrs, Baxter."
"What did ihe lay?" anxiously asked Mr. Coltm.
"Finally decided ter think It over and write him yes
or no ter-night."
"Well, well, well! I swan ler man!" Abljah wo.
talking to hlmaelf rather than to Napoleon. "Philander
Baxter! Philander—that mean, miserly old— Humph!
there must be sunthln' In this more'n there looks ter he."
Then, after.a pause, "gay, Nap," he aeked, "what
made yer s'pose I was thlnkin' of marryln' Mellssy?"
"Why," said Napoleon, slowly, "you be'n a-co-nin'
ter lie her off and on fer four er Ave year now, and I
klndir thought yer might be thlnkin' of keepln' comp'ny.
Course I ain't had no experience myself, betn' a bachelor,
but-"
"I seo, I see. Four er five year." musingly: "that
does seem a long time. Mebbe I have been a leetle mite
slow. Comes of my everiastln' cautiousness. I'm glad
yer come down and told me, Nep. Jedge yer didn't
like the Idee of Philander fer a brother-in-law; he le a
toler'ble  hard  driver."
" "I'wnn't thnt!" declared Mr. Mayo, reddening. "I
don't care how hard a driver a man ls. Work don't
scare me. i Jest thought yer oughter have a chance,
that's all."
"Well, I'm much obleeged ter yer. Cal'la.e I'll s.ep
up snd see Mellssy a minute er so. Reckon you'll
excuse me.    So long!"
And MT. Colton hurried out, leaving hil visitor to
follow or not, as he pleased.
CHAPTER II
If any one not cognisant of the facta had seen
Melissa Mayo getting supper that night they would have
had strong doubta as to her sanity. She made the tea
In the coffee pot, and Just caught herself ln time to prevent putting on the baked beans to warm in the sugar
bowl. When a woman at the age of ii receives two
proposal!, on the same day she la apt to he somewhat
flustered, and mistakes are excusable.
She had long ago given up the Idea that Abljah Colton meant anything serious by his visits. He had been
calling for ao many years that his dropping In every
now and then had come to be taken aa a matter of
course. Besides, Melissa shared the prevailing opinion
that Abljah was on the point of going on the town, and
theirfore, not being able to support himself, had no
Intention of taking a wife. But that afternoon he hod
come hurrying to the back door, and, on entering the
dining-room, had without preface asked her If she had
ever thought oi belnp married, and, If so. how she d like
to ship long with hlm. After this he appeared too
much engaged In wondering ut his own temerity to
say more, und shut up like one of his own r-callopa.
The astounded widow, afler several "Lnndsakes,"
and I'm so flu.toreo I dunr.c what ter do's," had finally
stammered that she would like a Utile time to think It
over, and would send an answer In wrltln' lhat night
Abljah, who had sat on thn edge of his chair, twirling
hla hat and h'tchlng uneasily, indented to this proposition with alacrity, and departed forthwith, leaving the
much Bought Melissa to wander about In a dazed state
until tea time,
Neither Napoleon nor hte sister-in-law had much to
say during the progress of the meal. Tho former ate
rather hurriedly and kept glancing furtively across tho
table. After he hhd finished hla third cup of tea, however, he blurted out:
"Wall,  Mellssy,  which  it'll be   Philander or 'Blje?"
The relict  of  the martyred Ellphalet eet  down  hur
cup with emphasis,
"Napoleon Mayo! you'vu be'n a-llstenln'!" she exclaimed.
"Hain't, nuther!" declared Mr. Mayo, guiltily,
"Yes, you have, and dun't yer have the face ter deny
It.    Huw else did you know 'bout lt-I never told yer!
"Well, I happened ter be scttln' or. the waBh-benoh
when Philander was here, ami he ledlered so loud a
decf man could hear him. Besides," and Napuleon ils-
turned an all* of Injured dignity, "who's gol u better
right ter listen? Ain't I your brother In-law, and didn't
'Liphalet say ter ine, jest 'fore he died: 'Napoleon, I
leave Mellssy In your care; you look out fer her?' And
I've done It, too; laid awake ulghtB and planned and
planned, so's ycu'd have a easy Ilniu Worked myself
h't f ter death, and nut a word of tfinnki, This l.i an
lmpnriant matter; yer oughter nsk my advice."
"Vour udvlcel l naked your advice and took It when
1 put that thousand dollars In the Buy Bhore Investment
Company, and where'd lhe advice and the thousand
doilais go to? Where's the profits ive wna goin' tor
mark-it un that other thing I took your ftdvlco about—
that patent clam dlggor? They're ln your mind, tliat'i
where ihey be, and that's when- molt of your work Is
done. You march your bonis Inter tlmt woodshed and
slay there! I don't oak advice of folks that's dishonorable enough ter listen under winders."
The discomfited Napoleon retired to the 8t Helena
of tbe woodshed, and the milled Mra, Mayo cleared away
the Ua things with a bang. Then sh'.' aat down at the
Old-fashioned desk and prepared to write lhe letters that
should carry Joy or woe to two palpitating hearts.
In her rational Intervals that afternoon sho hnd
turned the matter over and over In her mind. Inclination i-olnted one way; duty and prudence tlm other, Sho
had always liked Colton; In fact, llie gossips fn town
weie agreed thut, had Ablpih mustered up courage to
propose In the old dayi: when he ami Ellphalet weru
courllng the fair Melissa, he would have won. Bul
Abljah delnyrd, and Ellphulet didn't, and so thu Inl ter
came out ahead.
At the present time the facts were these; AMJah
wae poor, and, so the widow reasoned, could not uirry
on the farm. If ahe should yj-t the pension \hw might
have enough to get along on, but It whs Philander who
hnd suggested thu pension In the firsl plnce. and who
had der,? so much tc help her to get It, From her point
-if view It would be thn worst sort of Ingratitude tu
marry Abljah and live on money thnt Philander had
obtained. No, It waa her duty to marry Philander, find
he was rich enough to keep the old home and pruvtdu
for Napoleon and for her.
She had never written n letter of this kind before,
fihe could and did write pages of news and small talk '
to htr niece In Enst Boston, but thil wis no ordinary
subject, and no ordinary letter would do It Justice Hhe
roBe, and, from the shelf where It Stood along with thu
"Life if Captain John Smith," "Pilgrim1! Progress,"
"The Pirate's Own Book," ''Goapel Hymns Number 2,"
and "The Home Doctor," ahe tuck lhe "Complete Letter
Writer" and opened It at the page bended, "From a
Young Lady Accepting nn Offer of Marriage."
The young lady In question iruist hnve tmen a very
formal young lady, fur htr Idea of a latter waa a grand
.'affair, almoit painfully so. No "Sweethearts" and
"Own precious darlings" for her; no, Indeed But Melissa thought tho epistle the pink of perfection and proceeded to copy It
"Dear and Respected Friend -I have cons Id«red, with
a henrtfelt sense of responsibility and solemnity your
proposal, seeking my hand and heart ln marriage. I
rea Ilia the importance of the decision which I am called
upon to make, and am conscious of Ita potent effect upon

also your sterling worth and stainless character, and
feet that I may safely trust myself to your guiding care
aa we travel together the long pathway of life. Ltear
friend, 1 accept your proposal. Yours affectionately,
"MELISSA T. MAYO."
The widow read this mournful screed over again with
a becoming pride, and, placing It ln an envelope, sealed
the latter and addressed tt to "Philander li. Baxter,
Orhain, IrUus."
"Aba!" sneered Philander, exultlngty; "w yer tee ver
ain't so Independent, after all. You're a pauper! And
yer-ve killed the egg that laid the golden mam, too. But
don't yer flatter yerself What d'yer s'pose 1 -wanted ter

"Philander Baxter, 1 don't know what you're talkio'
about, but I do know thut the Lord's be'n good enough
ter let me aee what kind of a man you be. Walk out of
that door this minute!   Not another word!   Tou march!"
The widow's eves snapped and her flngars twitched.
Mr. Baxter hesitated, essayed to speak, thought bettar
of It, and—marched.
Napoleon was elttlng or. ths wash bench.
"Nice  mon.Ing,   Philander!"   he  said,   cheerfully
"You—yuu-you-l-" gaiped the choking owner of
bonds, and puied on, speechleBS.
"Half an hour later Melissa stood at the back door, waving a good-bye to the jubilant Mr. Colton."
Then, with a sigh, a sigh that meant the relinquishing of a lifelong dream, she returned to the next page
of the book and proceeded to copy the letter, "From a
\oung Lady Rejecting a Proposal of Marriage."
"Keapected and Honored Friend:—I have considered
with a heartfelt sense of responsibility and solemnity
your proposal seeking my hand and heart In marriage.
I realize thc Importance of the decision which I am
called upon to make, and am conscious of Its potent
effect upon my happiness In the future. Honored friend,
I realize your sterling worth as a young man of high
moral character, but 1 cannot but feel that the difference
In our temperament and Ideals makes It Inadvisable for
me to consent to entwine my career with yours and
travel with you the long pathway of life. I feel that It
la wisest for me to decline your proposal. My parents
agreu with me that this decision Is for the best I shall
always be your friend. Yours with sincere respect,
"MELISSA T.  MAYO."
When Melissa reached the words "my parents" In
the copy she healtated, pondered, and at length aubstl-
tnterl the word, "Napoleon." Then, Just ns she sealed
this second letter In Its enve'ope and addressed It to the
luckless Abljah, the Methodist minister rang the front
door bell.
"Why, how'd you do, Mr. Salterfl? I declare, what
a stranger you be! Nnpoleon: Nap-o-le-on! Take
them two letters off my deak and mall 'em down ter the
posiofflce right away. Yes; them two there. Walk
right Inter the setlln'-room, Mr. Salters."
And MeiUsn hurried awny to enlirtnln her guest,
who was making his formal round of pastoral calla,
Napoleon took the leiter-j Into the kitchen, took his
h^t from the null, and stood turning the two envelopes
over and over In tils hand.
'Jest like her," he muttered. "Nevor naked my ad-
vlcn nt all, and there ain't no tslltn' what'a ahe's been
and done. I oughter see whnt's aho writ; It's my
boundeu duty ter ate."
He held the letters up to the light, but It was nearly
sunset, and  the paper was thick,
'"That woman needs a guardcen, that's what she
needs," he soliloquized.
He tiptoed to the dining-room dnor nnd shut It carefully. Then he hold the two letters over the steaming
IIORe of the ten kettle.
Twenty minutes Inter ho started for the postoffice.
CHAPTER III
MellHia'l spirits were not nf the best the next morning, a state Oi mind which had Its effect upon her tamper
and calmed Nnpoleon lo seek Ihe QUlet nf the wnsh-lieinh
tor the most nf the forenoon. To tell the iruth. the
widow was not looking forward to wedded life with Mr.
Baxter AS a dream of hlUs, Philander wm not thu
lde.il bridegroom. Then, too, she could nut help thinking
how much happier ahe might have been with Abljah. If
Circumstances hnd been different, Poor fellow, how
disappointed he would be. Melissa1! onl> consolation
was the thought lhat she wna doing her duty an.l that,
perhaps, Philander would take Iter t" Niagara Palls un
their wedding trip. To go to Niagara Kail* had been
her dream ever sines Ellphilet had promised tu tnke hor
there nnd had been unable to keep his word.
Sh'j wna dusting the chairs in the "sett!n'-room" and
looking nut nf the window when Philander slammed the
front gate and came up lhc walk. The accepted juitor
didn't look happy; not nearly bo happy as lie should look
under the <1rcumntanees, Melissa thought, Boforo She
could gi't to the buck door, he had opened it and stamped into tlm dining-room.
"Oood-niornln'. Ph'lander." said Melissa, blushing becomingly.
"yoti—yott—>'0U!" tpittered Mr. Baxter, whoso face
was the color of a danger nlgnnl.
"Why, what's Iho matter', began the widow, but
Philander Interrupted her.
"Voil—you jumper, yuu! he shouted, shaking his fist,
In which two envelopes, nne hrown nnd one white, wero
clutched: "vou mis ruble pauper, you!"
■Philander Bnxtor,   whnt do  you   ?"
"Dutit yer talk ler me' Pont yer do It' Thought
because vou was goin' ter gll the pension money yer
didn't need inc. hey? Do yer rccllze whu I be?* im tl.o
richest mnn In this town, that's who I bo. I've got
money in the bank, 1 have! Vcs, and I own bonds, And
-and-who are you? That's what I aak! Who aro
vii-?"
Tho bewildered Melissa tried to Interrupt ence more,
hot Mr. Baxter would not 'illow it
"Who art you? What have you got? Not a red
cent! Thai's what yer've got! And >ou think yer'va
gol a pension comin', don't yer? Well, yer nln't1 Hend
that!"
Automatically, Melissa took the brown envelope from
Phi Ian dfir'S lingers. It enclosed n telegiam to Mr. Baxter,
"The Mayo pension clnlm turned down by the government.    Your affidavits wan't hefty enough.
"ANTY TAYLOR."
MV. Mayo eaid nothing, but his shoulders shook.
Melissa returned to the dining-room, sat down in th*
rocking-chair, rtad the telegram again, and began to cry.
Her wrath and mortification at Phllander'a insults wero
keen, but they were forgotten ln the crowning olnnppolnt-
ment of the rejection of the penFlon claim. The farm
would have to be soid. for she had not money enough
to pay the taxes. What would become of them? What
should she do?
"Mellsay!" called Napoleon, "'Blje n comin'."
The widow sprang to her feet, hurriedly wiped her
eyes and bravely greeted Mr. Colton as he came up the
back steps. If Philander bad looked too gloomy for an
accepted lover, certainly Abljah looked too happy for a
rejected one. He was dressed In a new suit of clothes,
too, which the widow, even tn the midst Of her grief and
excitement, did not fall to notice.
"Well, Mellssy'" exclaimed Abtjnh. Learning like the
sun In  August,  "here  I be.  yer see!'
"^eh." stammered the lad\. "I-I see you be, Abljah. '
"Yer se*.> I be! Weill is that al! yer've got ur sa> ter
me th's mornln' of all mornln's? Why. I've pot a heap
ter say ter you. my denr!"
At this fond appellation Mrs. Mavo Inoked up In
astonishment, and Abilah saw her swollen eyelids.
"Me'.issv Mayo!"  he exclaimed,   "you've been cryin'."
"No.  1 Bln't-that Is,  I—"
"Mellssy. you're too good a Methodist ter tell yarns
like that. Now what's the matter? By thunder' 1 know.
It'* that mls'rab|e Philander Baxter! : see him comin'

"Atljnh Colton. What did you jest sav ter me about
belli' a Methodist?"
"That's po. Well, I'll see Philander later. Now,
Mellsay, what's the trouble"   Out with It"
Melissa could keep the secret no longer.
"Oh, 'BIJah!" she sobbed; "I've lost my pension. Tho
gov'ment wouldn't allow It."
"Wouldn't, eh?" .«ni.l Mr. Colton. calmly. "Well, I
ain't B'prlsed.   1 wouldn't cry 'bout that."
"Wouldn't cry! Why. what am 1 goin' tor live on?
How can I run the farm'1"
"Why, 1 reckon I'm goin' ter look out fer that, ain't
I* when *t man marries a woman he gln'rally cal'latas

GIRLS COME..Y AND DIGNIFIED
All wrung. Know now lhat
Ihe Indian—at least he of lhe Blackfoot tribe
—was in his aboriginal slate a happy, aljec-
donate fellow, who kissed and fondled his
wife, helped her with her work as much as du
men of the white man's country, who would
die for his faithful friend—in fact, lhat "the
Indian is lhe white man without the veneer of
civilization." And jusl as completely must
we reverse our conception of Mrs. l.o and the
children.
This is the conclusion of ./. //'. Schttllz,
who married a Rlackfoot woman and lived
long with her tribe. His remarkable ston

Berry had married a Blackfoot woman and waa
living happily with her In their tepee.- One dny Chief
Weasel Tail abruptly asked Schulti why he did not
do likewise, adding, "You have the right to do m~
you killed a ('ree and you look a Cree. horBO In tb*

Theae things, Indeed, he had done, for his daredevil nature prompted hlm to join the Indians In any
exciting adventure.
"Oh!" he evaded, bashfully, "no one would have
me,   Isn't that a good reason?"
ThlB tickled the funny-bone, of easel Tail's wlfp,
and-doesn't this show that the BOUaw doea nut really

Young Schultz envied his [.lends Berry nud Sorrul
Horse—also n white man—who seemed to he so hnppy
with their women. "Never a cons word, tilwayn the
beat of good-fellow ship anil open affection for each
other."
So, one day, when he snw a maiden whose looks he
liked, he said to Berry; "I'd 1 e lo have that girl.
What do you think?"
"I'll see. my old woman about It.' responded Berry.
And Merry's woman fixed It, sure enough.
"What nm 1 to pay?" asked the overjoyed youth.
"Her mother says there Is to be no pay, only that
you ar« lo koep your promise to b« good to her daughter."
N'nt-ah-ki (that was the name of the girl) simply
came over to Schultz'a lodge one day und made hot'
home with him, This was the Indian custom. Afterward, though, there waB a legal ceremony.

fihe answered only "yes" and "no" to his questions.
But this wasn't because she \.'us dlssatlsfled wllh him;
she simply thought It becoming dignity to us« in hil
presence,
But there wae n revelation of love when he volunteered to go with a war party, one day. She began
to cry and grasped his sleeve. "Don't go " sho pleaded,
"for If you do, 1 know you will be killed, and 1 love
you ao much."
After this she threw off her reserve, laughed and
danced, na ho puts It, "the aun always shone."
Ono of the Indian custom*., which be Insisted upon
disobeying was that prohibiting a man frum seeing
hla mother-ln-law. Aa for him, h« liked Nut ah-ki'a
mother, and Insisted upon having her sit In the Mg«

Ludicrous scenes were caused by the mother-in-law
order. Schulti saw n tall and dignified chief fall backward behind a high counter an hla mother-in-law

WAYS OF THE RED GIRLS
Being an Inquisitive whito man, he learned aome
things which even the Indian bucks, perhaps, do not
know. For Inatauco, when the young men and glrla
wore engaged In their games on cither aid" of the
common, 11 was well known that tlmae of each side
wore closely eying the other side, although they gave
no palpable sign.
Worn iNut-uii-kl h*1 learned that when the girls got
away by themselves they had merry times discussing
the boys, and especially laughed over the unties of
Home tellow corresponding to nur "masher1 who considered himself the dandy of the village
That UiIr Indian wife had In her veins the samo
tire of romance and love as her white sister was shown
after the public maiming of a womnn who had been d«v
teoted In liuldellty. The woman's nose was cut off-
the usual marking In audi cases,
"You aee," Nut-nh-kl told her white husband, "the
woman wus not to blame. She had always loved Two
Stars, but lie Is verv poor, and her bad father made hor
go lo bad nltl Looking Hack, who had already
live women, and 1» very mean and cruel to them, Oh. I
pity her!"
After a year of life with Nat-nh-ki her white husband left her to return East, lie thought he wad going
back to his Puritan people. But he round he no longer
liked the life of olvtlUatlon, He hinged contlnua ly
for the plains and found luve for this girl of the wilds
Stronger than other Ilea.
As he entered the lodge on his return, she was on
bor knees before the fireplace blowing the flames. Hays

"'Stop!'  she  exclaimed,    "Stop!   You are good,

As to morality of the Blackfoot womnn, one might
Judge from an incident. One day. white the women
were laughing and talking gully, Schultz walked ln
with a Methodist Kplscopul clergyman. "' "■-'-'■
he whispered: "This Is u -"Acred man.
hlm to sacredly marry us,"
"Oh," she cried. "How did you ever know my
wish? Il Is what 1 have always wanted you lu do, but
1-1 was afraid, ashamed to ask you."
An Instance given In the story shows thnt Indians
at tlmeB are moved bv love for a friend to do herolo
thl nan There was a bad Indian in lhe camp whu was
opposed to Schultz living among them; he tried twice
lu assassinate hlm. One day the Indian was found
dead uo the plains.
MURDER FOR A FRIEND
It was supposed he hnd lust his life on one of the
warring expeditions, until a young Indian of the tribe
came fnrwnrd and confessed! "1 killed him. He would
have killed our white brother I meaning Schultz), and
I killed him." ,    ,    , ,
This astounded the white man, who had been raised
to believe that lhe Indians wore selfish and ungrateful Instead of mourning, tha bad man's wives Joined
In the general rejoicing.
SohUltl tells at some length of an Indian elope*
merit at which he assisted. He and the redskin lover
rode several hundred miles, but were received with
coldness In the camp of the young woman. Very op-
nortunely a rival tribe attacked he camp, and during
the excitement the two men slipped away with the
eirl, who rode behind the lover on his horse.
It Ih somewhat astonishing to the white man to
learn that Indians are-or were in those days-^emon-
stratlvo in their affections, Kissing was a common
token of luvp among tho Northwestern tribes, and a
I.rave was not ashamed nor too blase to give outward
evidence of his feollngs—which In Itself throws a new
iiirht on the Indian character.
Charily'.' This remarkable man found lhe Indiana

lodire in the cump wan open to It.
After a happy life together, Mr, Penults wns deprived of his wife liy death. Sin* passed awny of

Essterbrook was a mild little man with thick spectacles,
who always looked up apprehensively when people swung
the doo'i*. As Ormsby entered, he almost jumped. Eaa-
terbrook did not like Interruptions, Sometimes they
made him put his pen In the wrong rack.
"Afternoon," hailed Ormsby. "Where is the Governor?"
Easterbrook wiggled, "The Governor," he answered,
hesitatingly, "is In his office, but you can't sec him. Mr.
orrnshy-really, you can't see him this afternoon."
"Why not"" In the city room they held lhat Ortns-

lie pushed forward. The executive clerk caught, at
his arm "Don't go In, Mr. Ormsby." ho pleaded, nervously.    "You mustn't—honestly, it isn't right."
Orrnshy paused. "So-0," ho whistled. "Same old
alnry, and In a mighty had place is It? Where's Bora-
buck'.'" Roraback was the Governor's private secretary,
his counselor, defender and refuge in time of trouble,
and one whom Ormsby viewed with much respect.
"Mr P.ornback's gone? for Sunday, and—and—Mr.
Ormsby, that citizens' committee to demand the veto of
the fl and C, W. bill Is coming here at 'A o'clock, ami
the Governor's got an iron-dart appointment with them.
What am I going to do? Say, whnt am I going to do?"
There wns helpless dismay In Easterbrook's slinking
Voice, and the hand on the reporter's arm was trembling.
"You're going to keep very quiet for a few minutes,"
assure! Ormsby, "and I'm going to take n look at
things," He brushed aside tlie protesting clerk, und
stopped Into the first office of the Governor's private
suite. It wns vacant, lle pulled the heavy drapurles
dividing it from the second room. The Governor was
there, lie was careened, a flabby, heuvy-Jowled llgure
of a mnn, across the billowy arm of n great cushioned
chnlr, his feet weakly entangled in the wreck of a
tabouret. Ilia eyes we-re bleared and watery. He
drooled Idiotically.
"H'lo, Ormsby," he gluttered. "Hav" drtnk--good
drink."
The Governor of the sovereign Stale of Centralia was
hopelessly drunk!
Ormsby viewed tho spectacle without the shock of
surprise. He lind found what he had anticipated when
tho frightened Easterbrook hnd first essayed to bar hla
progress. He knew the weaknesses of his Excellency.
There were many of ihem. and this the worst of all,
since lt was the highway for the others. He had seen
the Governor noisily hilarious In the utile coterie of his
military staff at the summer encampment of the State
guird. He had heard half-suppressed whisperings of
disreputable exploits In distant cities. He knew the man
for the weak figurehead of designing political powers.
Rut never before had the weakness brought him tottering to this disgusting, pitiful besottedness. Never before
had Centralla's Capitol been chosen as Its theatre,
Ormsby hml few ideals. He was lhe crack reporter of
a morning paper. But the situation was extreme.
"Faugh!" said Ormsby. "You're a sight!"
Easterbrook stole to his side. "Whnt are we going
to do?" he quavered, hysterically. "The committee's
downstairs now."
"Hav' drink," persisted the Governor.
"He ought to sec 'em," argued Ormsby. "He ought
to see 'em, because thai railroad franchise is an out-and-
out steal they rolled through the Legislature on gold
dollars, and this committee of heavyweights might
frighten him into vetoing tt like a man. But, of course,"
he added, "he can't see 'em. He Isn't tit to see anything but n patrol wagon. We'll stave 'em off." He
turned toward the door.
The Governor wallowed rn his chair with sickly effort
to rise.
"Whosh Gov'uor?" he demanded, thickly. "You
show'm In, Goin' grant franchise. Got ail fixed. Ran'all's
gen'1'man. Road have anything 't wants. I'll settle
'em. Been prepar'n for'm. Goin' grant franchise. You

Ormsby wheeled about. In his blue eyes Hashed the
sudden light that comes with discovery and swift decision. For a moment ho eyed the weakly floundering
executive lu disgust. Then he sprang to action, "Easterbrook." he ordered, sharply, "In three minutes you show
ihal committee In—right In here."
The executive clerk paled. "But Mr. Ormsby," he
sobbed.   "I-I can't.   He's-"
"Kastorbniok," repeated the other, quickly, "you do
just exactly ns you're told or something very terrible fs
going to huppen to you. You chump," he added, more
cheerfully. "I'll run Ihls show ull right."
He hesitated a moment us he heard Easterbrook's
shaking tones In the outer olliee. Then he strode toward the Governor, who had ceased his vain attempts
lu stand, and with bt aided chin sunken on hla chest was
now breathing heavily in slumber.
"So Randall bought ynu before breakfast, did he?"
h*> questioned, very coolly now. "You're pnrt of tho
H. and C. W.'s equipment, are you? And you're going
to give tl.em ihnt franchise that'll protect them forever
p.nd amen from competition by the trolley, and let them
throttle the Slate al their own easy leisure? You're
going to lei the-m haul all the grain at their own line
young rates, are you—were you, I mean?" he corrected.
"Well, here's for State tights, as lhu misguided said
In '61."
With harsh hand he seized the executive of Centralia
by the collar of his dignified frock coat. Spineless and
collapsing In many Joints, thfl helpless, upturned feet
drawing great grooves in the velvety surface of the
rug, he dragged him to a corner behind the curtains,
threw open the window to let th» fresh air blow on the
purpled face, and pushed the flabby, Inert body Into place
with his fool.
"Lie there," he snapped, panting frum the exertion.
"You're making a lot uf iruuble—for a Governor."
Tlie citizens' committee, to protest agnliiBt* the
granting of the Iniquitous perpetual rights franchise to
the Hartsdale and Centralis Western Railroad, filed
slowly in from the anteroom of the executive clerk. At
tis head was General Rutherford, a gentlemnn of years
snd a somewhat formidable pomposity, who hud been
found useful In the soldiery of his Slate lu two wars,
but who had been almost shamefully negligent In the
acquisition of "financial consequence" und "vested Interest." Close behind him were Bronson, of the farmers' Federation; Boyd, lhe leader of the little valley
towns In the Assembly, Knapp, the keen young lawyer
accused by the H, and C. W. of professional entanglement with the proposed trolley corporation, nnd a dozen
others.
Ormsby knew them ull. They were lighting men of
strength ami purpose und honesty, but under existing
political ie/,idiiluns in Centralis they were men with
whom It was not necessary seriously tu reckun. Their
faces were stern and *d They enme. the forlorn hope
of a cause which already knew lis (ate. They sought
for that always possible weakness In the aunur of a
relentless foe, hut tbey were not hopeful.
The general held lu his hand a thick roll of foolscap!
presumably the petition oi remonstrance of which the
papers hod told, and ho smrvd In surprised displeasure
at the alert, smiling young mnn who confronted him,
"We have come,'1 he began, "to see-"
"Your pardon, general," Interrupted Ormsby. "Permit me to explain thai i am temporarily acting as prlr
vnte secretary to Governor Abingdon in the absence of
Mi*. Roraback. The Governor Is, I regret lo say, unable
to keep his oppolntment.  He
"Ah-h-h!" snorted General Rutherford, Indignantly.
The committeemen grouped In his rear whispered in
Ehnrp  dissatisfaction,
"He Ih." went on Ornish**, In even tones, "most disappointed ai his Inability to receive you In person, lln

gin nre over his shoulder ut lhe iht<*k portieres now
closely drawn  "only by n most Insistent matter which

you mighi not be forced to wait an unseemly tii'"' for
nls decision, he has made it possible for me to Inform
you of the course he will follow."
"Ah-h-h!" snorted the goneral again. Knapp buttoned his coat ami squared his shoulders. Bronson leaned
forward. The committee's attitude wns one of stern anticipation.
"Governor Abingdon," pronounced Ormsby, with impressive deliberation, "will veto In its entirety HouBe
Bill No. f.io, amending the charter of the Hartsdale and
Centralia Western Railway."
This time it was the men In the rear rows -if the
committee who drew In their breath sharply, and said
"Ah-h--h!" Knopp'a Arm lips parted In startlod surprise;
Bronson tossed his shaggy head "Young man," stammered General Rutherford, clearing his throat hoarsely,

If Governor Abingdon needed any further justification
of his course I am sure that would supply It."
Silently, for the suddenness of the victory had dazed
him, the genernl surrendered the roll of legal cap. "In
behalf of my colleagues aud the taxpayers of the State
whom we represent," he declared, ponderously, "I wish
to say that we are surprised ami grateful nl this unexpectedly prompt recognition of thfl righteousness of our
contention. We cannot"—the g°nerul cleared his throat
again and surveyed his followers challenglngly—"regard

that we canot thank him In person. Gentlemen "—the
general faced the committee with dramatic gesture and
thunderous tones—"our task Is ended. The executive
power of Centralia Is In safe hands."
Ormsby dropped his hardly worn formality. "Quite
light, general," he assented, guyly, "and I'm glad to
hear you nay so. It gives me a sense of personal elation,
so to speak. Gentlemen"—hi' was still carefully guarding the entrance to the second room, und thc committeemen, radiant now and conversing excitedly, went pn-islng
him hard—"1 really must beg you to excuse me. Governor left a lot of things to do. Sorry yuu couldn't have

With one hand holding ihe dark curtains lightly together, hc waved the roll of legal cap genially at the
departing general, as that slout old warrior led his
Jubilantly conversing forces out of the dour. His eyes
were glistening nnd his breath coining swiftly.
"Well, 1 played through the first half In good form,'

Eastorbrook was white uiul trembling. Then*, was

he gasped. "I hoard what the genernl said when he
came out. I don't know whnt the Governor will do to
us.    We—we -could get arrested for this"
Ormsby parted ihe curtains nnd gazed at the prostrate form, still lying helpless where he hud dropped It.
"Easterbrook," ho said, gravely, "this man here Is

ACROBATS AND DANCERS
The Big Feature of the Norris
& Rowe Circus.
Mr. Chas. Sasse, lhe famous European agent of Morris & Rowe, finally
secured, alter several years aitempts,
tlie  troupe of   Cossacks   and  wild
Russian acrobats and dancers which
bears  the nnme ol  the Newekyotf
Troupe.    These people are naiives ot
the wild Steppes ol  far off  Russi.
They acknowledge no Sovereign and
theCz.irofi.il  tl.e  Rixsia-  is  wise
enough to let them alone.   They have
never  been conquered an.l know no
master save tbe chose., leader ot Iheir
own particular cli.n. They have a love
of  wild  udveutu.e  but are seldom
willing to  venture into civilization,
but Mr. S;isse painted lhe new country
ot America to them   in  such  golden
colors and offend tl.em a salary that
simply seemed princely, and so they
determined to come to  this country.
It is doubtful if they will remain long
for  they  are already pining for their
wild tree fi"rce  life of their native
mountains, but Norris ,*v. Howe have
put themselves under a heavy hond
to return them to their native land at
the expiration of tho  present circus
season.    The exhibition they give is
said to be wonderful and marvelous in
tl.e weirdness of their customs and
ceremonies.     The  men  are super-
naturally stiong.    Their daring teats
ot expert horsemanship arouses the
wildest enthusiasm.   The women play
upon old musical instruments and are
the most graceful dancers and acrobats
this country has over seen.    Upon
the elevated stage in  the middle of
the vast arena of the Norris & Rowe
circus, the Newskyoft* Troupe perform
a series of strange contortions.    Tl.e
acrobatic is mingled with tl.e singing
and dancing and while it iB all new
and strange to this country, still it is
graceful in the extreme, by the very
expertness of it all.   The act is one of
absorbing and most intense interest
and must be seen to be fully appreciated,    While  the Newskyoff Troupe
are exhibiting, everything else will
come to a standstill, no other act
being allowed to interfere with the
lull pictinefquciiess ol it.    Tl.e cob-
tomes worn by the troupe are wonderfully  beautilul      The act will be
exhibited hero when Norris & Howe's
oircus conies to Revelstoke, Wednosday

All the hot weather aristocrats
are here-
English Flannels
Imperial Serges
Gray Worsteds
Scotch Tweeds
Irish Homespuns
Light fabrics, dark fabrics and plenty
in between —from lhe dignified
plain effects to all manner of daring

NOT SHAKING.   JUST A GENTLE
ROCKING OF THE LEVER.
Shaking is a hard, back-breaking exercise,
The Best
peculiar to common furnaces, while you can
stand erect at the Sunshine—and moving the
lever, to and fro, about half the length of your
arm, a few times, is mere play. A child can
casiiy do it.
Grates of the Sunshine are in two sections-
right and left. By gently rocking the lever, a
few times, the ashes are released from the right.
Repeat the operation on the left and the ashes
from that side drop into the ash-pan, too.
You couldn't wish for anything easier than
the Sunshine Method.
When this lever is not in use it can be disconnected from the grates and the opening
capped, But when connected it (ills up the
opening so snugly lhat no dust from Ihe fa'ling ashes can escape.
Every detail is thought of on the " Sunshine "—that's what makes it
the best.
If your local d-al, r does not handle the "Sunshine," write direct to
us for Free Booklet.
A most unusual opportunity to have
Ihe best make of Sewing Machine on
