Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen
under the presidency of Orand Master
P. H. Morrissey, of Cleveland, Ohio.
Matters of much importance are being
considered by the convention, among

biennially; tl.e appointment of a board
of insurance to report on claim in the
yesrs in which no convention is held;

Free-Milling Gold Quartz Vein
300 Feet Wide and Two
Miles Long—A Valuable Proposition at Our Doors.
Situated about eight miles south of
Rovelstoke and hall a mile from the
west bank of the Columbia River, is
possibly the largest lend of free-milling
gold quartz in British Columbia, and
whicli in the very near luture will he
a valuable asset to this district from a
mining standpoint.
About two years ago, while Mr.
Neil McEachern was cruising timber
along tbe weBt bank of the Columbia
River, between Revelstoke and Arrowhead, he discovered this immense lead
of free-milling quart/, and lo-nted
eight ciniins un it. The lead is I Ily
300 feet wide fur two miles in length
and it outcrops from 100 to 200 feet
above the surface, giving milli..ns ol
tons of ore on the stufaee, which cnn
be quarried without any difficulty and
at very little expense. During last
season Mr. McEachern did a large
amount of work in sampling the property and nearly 30 assays were made
of the rook, giving, returns of $2,
$8, $10, $15, $40, $72 and five assayB
running from $200 to the highest of
$270 to the ,oo. For thia year Mr.
McEachern has completed his assessment and made ai! arrangements for
the driving of a 50 foot tunnel. A
oabin hns been erected this spring on
the ground. The citizens ol Revelstoke
will watch with a good deal oi interest
the work upon this property, realizing
that in the near future, when the full
value of tbe discovery is demonstrated,
it will he another big asset to this city
wlrch will derive direct benefit Irom
the exploitation and mining of bo big
a proposition.

"You Cannot Come Into This
Court Unless You Wear
Your Clothes."
Cincinnati, O., May 9.—Peek-.i-hoo
shirt waists are tab.oedto far ns the
local municipal court is concerned,
even if the thermometer register 80
degrees. Justice Luedees took a shy
at. dress relorm when Miss Alva Hall,
aged 22 years, appeared in court with
a perforated or lattice-work waist.
"That wont do here," remarked the
judge. "You cannot Tome to this
court unless you wear all of your
clothing. I will continue this case so
that you can get out ol hee quickly
and get on a .'ecet.t waist. When you
come for trial do nut have that kind
of waist on. If you do, I will fine you
to the very limit ol the law." Altei-
wards the judge said: "I am opposed
to, the peek-a-boo waist. Woman's
crowing glory is her modesty, and I do
not think that peek-a-boo waists have
crowns on them. I do not think that
exposure ol that kind is ol any benefit
to the health of the wearer either."

Cheap Power and Light Supplied—Revelstoke a Center
of Industrial Development
and Progress.
Although Revelstoke has always
been a popular city both as a resort
for touriBtB and the travelling public
in geoeral and also as a central headquarters for commercial men in the
province, it is but recently that the
p ss'bil.iies uf her becoming an hid .if ■
trial center have attracted many eyes
to I l.e exceptional advantages held out
to possible manufacturing investments
and tn linns who are endeavoring tt
this time to locate in a likely district.
Within the last few weeks many inquiries have been made regarding the
feasibility uf establishing industries
here, and those whu have looked uver
the place have gone away very well
well satisfied with tlie results of theii
scrutiny. Whether or no these pre
liiuinaries will hear fruit cannot he
said, although the uutlook is promising. Revelstoke and her citizens have
some hopes and ambitions ol their
own—hupesflthat are founded on the
fact that besides being far removed
[rom any formidable rival aud the
center of a vast and promising territory, it also offers natural advantages
that are peculiarly its own. Rovelstoke
appeals to all intending settlers in the
west as a city of unrivalled portion
geographically and commercially and
furthermore a city which can supply
cheap power. The water and light
plant has been successfully operated
to supply all comers, during the last
few years, and with the installation of
a new system producing cheap power,
the hum of machinery for industrial
purposes will soon be heard. The city
stands ready to supply light and
power to promising industrial enterprise, at a cost of 15c, 12c. or perhaps
lower, on a sliding scale, for light, and
3c. to 2Je. for power. These rates are
as low as any city in the province can
give and offer excep'ional advantages
and encouragement ior the establishment of industries of all kinds.
Another boon to Revelstoke will be
the construction ol thc last few miles
of the Canoe River trail whicli will be
in all probability carried out this yoar,
by the Provincial Government, and
which will open up a vast and rich
tract of land, rich in forest, mineral
and agricultural resources, the value
ol which cannot be estimated, This
district enjoyed the best weather ol all
the surrounding country, during this
hard winter which is by no means a
small consideration. Agriculture and
fruit growing have laken c ..isiderahle
strides aod the latter especially, seeing
that Revelstoke has In en chosen as
the headquarters Ior the whole province. Mining aud timber development is far away ahead ol all exp. elation and as, evinced by the influx of
outside capital to h ith industries, the
expectations have been hilly realized.
These are only a lew ol the Improvements looming up before Revelstoke
and we have no reason to envy tin-
future of any of the great growing
cities of the Canadian weBt.
Growing Supply Nearly Equals
The price ol logs which during the
past winter reached an unprecedented^ high scale hns been dropping ull*
as the opening ol spring has increased
the supply, until now, it is stated on
guud authority, the price averages $2
leas than in February, No. 1 fir logs
which but a short time ago werc
bringing $14 can now he had at $12,
and at this price there is a good demand which indicates that the mills
are perhaps nut as overloaded as has
been hinted. Mixed Looms, which
were selling at $13 are now listed at
$11 and thoso too are readily placed.
It is said that tho reduction in logs
but presages a similar reduction in
tho price ol the manufactured article,
and this when announced will have an
immediate effect ou building which
has undoubtedly been retarded by the
high prices, An improvement iu the
car sorvice is also solving one ol the
chief problems of the ...ills and it is
expected that within a very short
time there will he a vory decided increase in tl.e shipment of lumber
eastward which will slill further enhance the demand Ior logs.

SATURDAY, MAY 11, 1907
Never in the history of British
Columbia haa there been such a demand ior timber land as at present,
the rich and vast areas uf thickly
covered forest property in the interior
country being especially in favor.
Every day sales ol lrnseB and cronn
grants of more ur Icbs magnitude are
being put through. While these sales
are taking place and outside capital is
flowing into the country, new offerings
are constantly king put in the market as the result ef the cruising uf new
districts and this general wave of
timber and lumbering interest is
ipreading rapidly on all sides, the
interior perhaps attracting the most
attention. Several, in (act many
parties arc out in various sections ol
this district, including Arrow Lakes
and the Hig llend, and when they
have completed their work it will
mean a further addition to the lands
Irom which Intending purchasers mny
select what they wnnl. The principal
demand is, ul course, lor Iir, but then-
is also a ready market lor cedar,
spruce and hemlock. No kind ol
marketable timber it allowed to go a
begging, and the result Is a stiffening
in prices all round. There is an active
demand L.r all kinds ol timber land,
and what is particularly striking about
the enquiries is the fact that most ..I
them are from south of the line. Ah
is well known, American investors
already hold large tracks of timbor
lard all over the province, but particularly of recent years has this influx
of American capital been felt in the
interior country. Many arc buying up
timber tracks with the idea of working them. Many have purchased
timher limits and mills, and are nuw
operating the same under improved
conditiuns; and others are purchasing
simply lur the purpose uf investment,
believing that a few yearn will bring a
large increase in  value,    There are
We nre in receipt of a lengthy communication from Mr. A. C. Flummer-
felt, of Victoria, in which he oilers

Canada's Banks Loan  $17.-
000,000 in One Month
The Canadian bank statement for
Marcli came out on April -Oih, and iu
view of thc great scarcity at tlie
present time, it is ol extreme interest.
The statement shows that the
bankers have noi heeo romanolng
when they spoke of tlie tremendous
demand lor money from business
Current hums in February were at
tbe record level of $682,600,000, but in
March they jumped to 1679,000,000,
an unprecedented total.
Had the hunkers not curbed their
customera' demands, the sum might
have been many millions more.
Every industry nnd business in
Camilla seems to l»- culling (or money
i.r extensions and te meet the grow-
.ng demands that have arise., as I
result. I the swelling volume of trade
from coast to coast.
March bit tl.e hanks holh ways, lor
not only did they Imve to lend ...on
money, but they lost several millions
in deposits.
This was due, it is believed, to the
lact that many people withdrew their
money Irom tbe hanks in order to
take advening.! of the bargain)
existing in the stock market, as a
result of the slump in prices.
Tliis statement gives   the   total

emigration of near U«W men, Women and children, who
arrived In Massachusetts Bay tn June of 1630. After a
fortnight of varied experience, sleeping In a ham tonight
hnd under canvas tomorrow night, riding on a pillion
heh.rd one brother, or steering u boat for another, Patience found herself, with her father and mother, her
brothers and sisters, nnd especially with the precious
baby nf the party, under the shelter of a tent en the
ehorc of Charles River, where, SdO years ufter, stood the
house of one of her descendants, on the lund which her
father stnk'd out on the morning of that dny. The older
limbers and sisters were at work her** and there, as the
rugtmen of a well-disciplined English yeoman's family
directed. And io Patience was left thc oversight of the
three children younger than herself. It was not hnrd to
pet Robert and Jotham to digging holes in the wind beside
the river, with the big shells they had found there. The
bnby wns too small to dig, too big to go to steep, and too
rue'il ute to be left alone. Patience had built bouses of
pohb'cs on tbe chest on which she nut, she had extem-
poflttd Jarkstraws from lhe big pine-needles; but one

wheat which Patience had placed there on the day of
the landing. This served her purpose heft of nil. The
whont was ranged In unnles, It wus pushed to and fro,
lt was dropped through holes, to be recovered by tho
baby's fingers, till, happily and suddenly, the child developed drowsiness, gave way to one skilful, slow rendering of the ballad of "Robin Hood." and. in a minute
more, was Bleeping under a veil, i-n the rough bed which

brother, "the Dibit snjs. 'some un hundredfold.'" And
Bhe rapidly counted her grains. "Her* are forty-three
■grains     A hundredfold will be a great many."
,.l-\rtln laughed good-naturedly ai her confidence, and
laid, '"llice mult be eurefu. i'Rshe, or the sun will horn

Martin waa fond of tht child, ua well he might be.
nnd ulwuys hummed hei. They filled the basket to-
gi-tner, and then he bade her pick out the very largest
nml plumpest of her gralna. "Thee doea not want a
merin harvest, Pashe," ho eaid: "good grain or none,
and good seed, If we are to have a hundredfold." Bo

And It proved, as It will prove in the world, thnt the

Borne mllei In a great birch canoe, which a friendly Indian
squaw on tht; river had lent Goodwlfe Coram. When
It cnm« to lhe curries, the children did their part wilh
the bout, There were two more than when they landed
at Salem. For the gentle Mudam Skeats had died
befoie Christmas, and that qulot gentleman, her husband,
hnd coughed his life away before two months more. Here
were the iwo orphans, Lawrence ar.d Mildred, whom
Goodwlfe Coram had taken
into her shelter and into her
heart, of course. With her
eight children, these two
made the journey to Ded*
The new home was
further advanced hi tho beginning than the old one
had been when they left It.
The men of mark who wanted Coram's help had known
enough to know that he
would be likely to stay if
they mndo things attractive
to his family. Two or three
ncres uf meadow had been
ploughed, a log-cabin built,
and thatched wllh marsh
hay nnd reeds, and, as the
day of arrhal chose to be
one of the days ln a New
England May when tho wind
blows from the southwest,
where ihe Indian's heaven
lies, everything seemed
cheerful and hopeful.
Coram's two horses wero
by lar the most valuable
part of his wealth. At once
he mnoo for himself n
rough harrow, and, under
the moonlight, with the
boys" help, broke up the
newly ploughed lund He
would try oats, he would
try barley, ho would try
wheat. As for the new corn,
which the Indian boys
showed him, he was Incredulous. They might plant
that; good ohl English
wheat wus good enough for
hlm. Patience said nothing
while the«e larger, labors
went on Eut the next day
she chose her own garden-
spot behind the house. She
found a pick and a spade—
both far too heavy for her,
but a fortunate rush of
water In the spring had
broken tip the surface so
that It wus not sodded beyond her strength. In one
Interval and another, between buby- tending and
plate-washing, and other
cares Invented  or suggested
by   her   mother,    she   made      	
herself   a   bed   big   enough
lur all tho seeds she had and mere. She planted
npple seeds which htr grandmother had given her ln Kent.
She planted scarlet-beans which she had saved a year
ago In the old cottage ln Fingland. And, with most care
of all, she broke into a dozen bits the hard block of soil
which had caked together in thu Indian basket, and set
them in liei* new garden, us she might have dono so
muiiv precious tulips, had she ever heard uf such wonders.
were the fowls she loved so well, and then made har a
oed big enough for her heart's most earneit desire. He
lammed off the straggling water which came down from
the wood above. There was space for the posies which
we** to come from the swamp, there was a large corner
where sho was to plant ln the spring the Indian corn
which the old squaw had given her, there were a dosen
poles for her beans, which were to be glorious in another
summer; there were long beds for her peas, and, In the
mldil of all, well away from the ruBh ot water from the
thatched roof, was a space especially raked and sifted,
where Phnronh was to have his 570 full stalks of grain.
"Thee shall have a stalk for each day of the year, little
one, and 5*03 stalks more. Witii Buch good luck ai thee
har had, wo will have thirtyfold this time." And with
her own hand Patience planted Pharaoh as he bade her.
She had a bit of worn-out net which one of the fishermen
" 'Smoke, indeed,' cried she, in dismay, like his own. 'Not near the house, thank God!'
Fortune favors ihe brave. And Is there nol indeed
a divinity among the powers set to rule this world who
.has n special love for children and their enterprises? Who
enall say.' Uut it seemed so. Before June was over
Goodman Coram had reason to wish that be had listened
more careluily to the Indian boys. They had warned
him thnt the meadow where he planted, which seemed
wholly out of reach of lhe stream, was, in exceptional
yenrB. flooded when a freshet came. They even showed
him logs which had been floated there; but ihey had to
conf0#a that these had been there ever slnco they re-
memlMTed. Coram had sold, In his easy way, that If the
trerheiH had held off for ten years, they would hold off
a year longer. Anyway, he must build the town mill
and lend lt; hc could not be felling timber for his fields
nnd crops, ns the others were. •
And so poor Coram hud the dismay, when he woke
one morning In the middle of June, of seeing that the
rain o| the lust week had started up In the mull sources
nnd streams such as ho had never dreamed of In Eng-
'and. At night he had simply taken comfort that the
roof was io wull thatched and the houpe bo dry. But
In tho morning here wn* the stream wllhln a foot of
his Utile Md, so carefully planted not four weeks
since. He looked wistfully on ihe field, sorrowfully on
thy river. "No good crying for spilled milk,'' he said,
hi he lud Patience and her muther back to breakfast.
'Lucky that 1 am a better millwright than 1 am farmer,"
Lucky, indeed, lur Lefore art hour had gone by some new
ruBh of water came down, us some beaver-dam gave way
above, and all the little field wus unuer a torrent which
even lloated the logs thut hud lodgod In lt In the freshet
of old days.
\nd so lt happened that, In Patience's little patch
behind the house, there ripened ail the wheat which
thc Coram family made ln their second summer In the
hay. The seed, because ll had been chosen of the best,
and becuusu It was dlllgentiy watered wllh the slops
which Patience curried from her motner s kitchen, throve
marvetously. Goodman Coram and Murtin wuuld pruliv
Patiences farming almost even* dny, "Thee- will not
have thy hundredfold, Pashe," Martin would say. good-
naturedly; "1 do not kiow what the man lowed who got
that, but not inch wheal as we sow. Hut thee will huve
a good tweutyfuld, and, maybe, thirtyfold. And that is
enough for a beginning In farming."
"The good Loul did not say that all bore a hundredfold, even then and there," said thc girl'i mother, laughing. "Bom*-* hnd a hundred und aume thirty. And 1 believe He hived one as much as the other."
When Martin told her the time had come, Patlenoi
cut her tall wheat with her own scissors, Her mother
kept the tblrtv tall stalks of straw and laid them by
under the HVM for the time when Patience ihould learn
to braid them, And Patience with her own fingers, In
the autumn twilight, picked all the big gralni from the
husks. Martin himself marveled thai they were io
large, and his good-natured father prulsed Patience that
she picked her seed so well. Bo, u she picked, the girl
made two piles, one tor "the best, the very, very best,"
and another for what her father told hei to mark as
second grade. Sho counted the full grains which she
culled the "Pharaoh wheat," and ihe had 670 kernels. She
made for herself a little hag from a dish-clout, and sewed
ths ends together, and bid it away with her treasurea.
8o, when October came, and th* mill was running
briskly, It only there had been grain enough for lt to
grlrd.  Patience called  Murtin une afternoon and usktd
him  how  she  was  lo  plant  "Pharaoh. Lean klne'
1 will not plant at all," ihi laid, laughing. "It shall
not li* said of me that I started poor cropi tn thli
brnvo, mw woild, which hath inch wonders In it."
The scrap of Shakespeare had itolen to her eon from
a iftllnt "ii the ship. Neither ihe nor her brother
aliened when* the sailor heard It, and still less that shs
hm. mlsqurjied it, Martin alwayi petted her, and would
have .imii' much mme for her than make a garden-bed.
He lieut oul at once, surveved her present irissesslons,
and law ut a g'nmi' how they could be enlarged. "I
milli brum ible seine of the posies from the woods," he
laid, "If their Is e\e! a time when the sun will not
butn lh"m belore *ac can mme them Thy besns do
thee credit, like im wheat, mv darling, and thee Is the
bill firmer nf us all " Po i*.* brought his ii'iidr ni.l hli
pick, he drove In plcketl stn-mj enough to Kt*ep off any
wauderliig pig,   he  Ktmid her thai her  worst enemln
gave her, and she pinned thlB carefully over Pharaoh's
bed and tho parts aroiu.d it. She drove off cocks and
heuB wllh unflinching perseverance, und even taught the
little spaniel who hud followed all their wanderings, that
he must not leap Insldu that incloaure. Llltle had tho
girl lo cull her uwuy from home, and hor watchfulnesa,
therefore, was easy, until the snow fell and protected all.
If she had known it, it enriched ull; "snow Is the poor
man's manure." , .        ,,,
With that full's success In the mill, and with worn
which knew no such petty limits as twelve hours or
even thirteen. Coram and Murtin cleared a farm whero
no freshets would sweep away their planting. .Between
thr- stumps they compelled the horses to drag their llgnc
plow. And, In a fashion, they got In their oat? and their
barley, und their wheat, By thlB time, also, Coram ft as
willing to plant as much of the Indian's corn as lie
planted of all tho rest. "But this we will make ready
for In winter," he said. "We will keep ourselves warm
by felling the great pines yon, and by burning them wnen
thev are felled."
And all was as he said. ,  n„.
Tils wheat harvest mado but a poor show comparea
with what he would have seen in Kent. His barley woe
poorer yet. But the oats were full and strong. aw
nobody has such wheat In this land," said he, alter their
little Harvest Home, "as the lasses do. How big la tny

And little' Patience, who was not so llltle now, blushed
crimson, and Hung her arms nround him without saying
a word, and kissed hlm.
Here it proved he was right, and, accordingly, he
led his vagrant family there when they hud lived little
more than three years In their home on the Ncponset
river. But this was a long time for an adventurer like
Goodman Coram.
Aud, once more, the family waa divided.    This time
Patience and  Lawrence and   Mildred und  Martin  were
of thu party which went across the land, while the little
children,  with the mill-gear, and  their mother and the
various  BtoreB,  went In a trading  vessel,  out  through
the bay, around by the perilous passage of Cape  Cod
and Nantucket, anchored  once and again in  the Vineyard  Sound and in   Long   Island  Sound,  and   then,  by
favorable winds, pushed forward for a fortnight to the
great   river.     This   time  the  marching  party  came  hi
ahead  of the sailing party, and  this time Martin and
the boys, who could swing an axe with the best of the
''>~. now, had made a good
beginning   for   their   father
and  mother,  In  cutting  the
logs   ready   for   lifting,   so
that   tht   cabin   was   soon
built and there wus but little tent-life  for the  women
before they were  fairly established,   That  valley   was
as   beautiful   as   It  Ib   now,
and  Goodwlfe Coram hoped
that this lime they had come
io   the   home   .where   they
were to remain.   Surely her
goodman    would    hear    of
nothing that was better than
this.    Here  was   to  be   the
home which she had promised herself so long.
Of all such emigration,
ihe temptation is to the new
settler to come somewhere
when; he may plow at once,
without thnt Irksome or tiresome business of cutting
down the timber, burning
It, and so creating a farm.
On the other side, as poor
Coram found to his cost, In
the little Mottapan valley a
meadow was a place not to
he trusted too fully, even If
one go up on the second
terrace. Here, In their new
Eden, they had the example
uf the squaws, who wero tha
Indian farmers, and were
able to profit by Borne of
their rough hydraulic enginery. Thut Is to say, their
custom was to take a good
bit of land on an upper terrace, and to fortify themselves by a low log rampart,
which would not, Indeed,
beur the pressure of a heavy
freshet, but which would be
able to keep an accidental
flood from the highest water
levels from ravaging the
field. Even before the cabin
was well covered In,
Coram and his boys, who
were as good to him us
men, felled one and another tree, bo that It should
answer Buch a purpose of
protection for a few acres,
resolved   not   to   be   caught
 ^^ again   as   they   bad   been
caught befoie. Nor were they.
The cabin Itself Btood on ground somewhat higher
than the terrace, For It Is one ot the peculiarities
of that beautiful river, pointing back, I suppose, to bits of Its geological history, that, as one
lake after another gave way In the formation of New
England, different terraces rose from the river, and you
may take your choice nt what height you will live above
the stream. This limu the father sowed his wheat In
bis field, and Lawrence and Martin sowed "Pharaoh" rn
what thoy knew as "the upper garden." Pharaoh had
become an Important element In the family life, and lt
wns Understood that Patience would not like to have her
crop mlxe-l In with the moro vulgar crop of the larger
field. It was no longer a crop to be watered with the
suds of the wash-tula, lt had to take the chunces, with
thn most democratic wheat, of the rain and the dew.
But when spring came, Patience wus delighted lo see how
firmly the stalks came up and bow bravely they grew
under those hot suns und under thoso healthy spring
slu.wers. Her father was as proud of her harvest as
he was of his own, and was wllillng to confess onco and
agc.Hi that she had the best show of them all. lt was
really quite a largo patch that grew from the careful
"OWlng of Lawrence and Martin, and when a hot July
crowned the work of the showers of May and June,
Goodman Coram himself confessed that never In' his
best Kngllsh experience bad he seen better grain.
Perhaps the origin of lhe "Pharaoh groins" hs* been
told In too much detail. Hut It seemed worth while for
younger readers, nt least, who eat their dally bread
ds If It came to them of course. Without anybody s special
effort or enre. to bc coirled hack to some of the chances
and dlflloitltlei of u beginning. The story need not be
told wllh tho same nicety for a year or two more, hor
enough has been told lo show why und how It happened
that the little girl's handful came to be plunted separably,
and why, from year lo year, thu product was kept separately. It waB no trifling task, after her third harvcai.
to lay out in succession, on the largt* kitchen table, one
and unother measure of thc great yellow grti ni, and to
put upon the floor, in thc old Indian basket, thoie which
were a littlo shriveled, or for any reason not io full a*
the others. A doien, perhaps, had bison p erced by a
miserable littlo worm, hardly bigger round than a arg-
pin, who had worked his way out of them. Patience
bulled these behind the coals In tho smouldering nihea
of the fireplace. Her beloved grains were far beyond
her counting now. And white sho kept ber first bug,
with a certain superstitious love or respect, she had to
make a much larger bag to hold the Increase of her
Thirty times fifty le 1600, and In another year thirty
times 16* made «,000 grains, Patience, who Is no ongei
little Patience, but tall Patience, and, be It added In a
whisper, pretty Patience, did not even make this calculation, But she did weigh her bags, and laid them In he
corner of the great meal-chest, uf which she was now tha
mistress. And thus she knew that Pharoah had kept
up to bis old standard. Not a grain of all that was
thua chosen was ever made Into meal, No, It was saved
for autumn sowing. And all Patience's original garden,
and more, well manured by Martin's loving care, wai
needed for Pharaoh's tyrannical requisitions.
But two vears was a long time for Goodman Coram
to remain In one home. He was on* of those who
"hunger for the horlson." And so soon as men began
to mspoct thnt the sandy gravel of tho bay shores was
not even equal to old Kent for nmifUt land, so soon
alio there began to be great rumors of WjJW WJJ
of the West," .as watering meadows to which the little
freshet-washed fields of th* Neponset were as a handkerchief pinned on the mainsail of a man-of-war. Thil WM
not the great river of which we know the name as Mm-

neapolfl and 8t, Paul people would think a very little
river, but which wai big to an Indian Olltatoy.ag
which from Its meadows fed young Sew England as the
Mississippi valley feeds th* New England of today.
Coram hid not been at the Dedham home for two years
before he was sent for to New Plymouth for some advice
as to their mill-gear. There he met some of the traders
to th* "great river"' and cam* home full of enthusiasm
with what they told him. There ws* lo b# the place for

sky was all a sea of pule pearly light; lu lhe lower edge

and then humming thc si/ug which hs had heard till

"Thoss us thy glorious worki   Pursnt of Good."
But, of i sudden, the miracle was perfected for which
they had come. It was the girl who saw It flrat "There

Lawrence looked over his shoulder to sec the "ebal*
t'-ed flower" floating on the lake, and skilfully dr*w
the bout to lt, io that Patience might take It for h«r
prise In the minute in which she did so. half a doien
more had opened, and, as ihe looked up she law them.
"There—ohl and there! There Lawrence, look there! Oh,
they are everywhere!"
Yes. that Is the beauty of morning on suth a lake,
where there are bo many of these maiden-queens waiting
to meet the sun-god. And Lawrence, delighted that she
ro enjoyed the new pleasure which he had prepared for
her, skilfully pushed the boat from one to another aa she
pointed. At last, indeed, there needed no pointing or
exclamation. The surface, Just now brown, or blue, or
green, ns it reriected shadow, or sky. or tree, was everywhere flecked with the pure white of the lilies, as they
fl-alted, hoping that the girl would need them.
The space between them in the canoe was filled with
the m'iss of them which she hnd collected, when Lawrence for the first time looked northward In the sky. Ia
an Initant his face changed.
"Patience, stand up-look yon'    What ls that—amolttf
"Smoke Indeed." cried she, In dismuy, like his own.
"Not near the house, thank God!"
And already he was driving the boat to the landing.
Three minutes and ihey are there; two more, with no
thoueht rf their enrgo now, nor of axe or paddle, they
are running up the sloping bank. The smoke, and even
tongues of fire, weit only too visible, juBt beyond the
northeast point, where the mountain had turned the
course of the river.
"I will run to the house and warn them," cried he.
"Do thnu go right to the tent nud wake Martin," and. as
he spoke, he threw back to her his whittle. "Cut all th*
cords, bid Martin roll up the canvas, and we will come
for tt." The uir! caught the knife, and ran. like Diana
herself, to call ber sleeping brother.
Yes, and neither of them had a minute too much for
what they had to do. Lawrence thundered at the cnbln
door. Ills cry waked nil who were there, and some sort
of clothing was wrapped round the little ones. Goodman
Coram himself was nway, caring fur the Windsor Mills.
But the two boys who slept then*** werc made to put on
chocs and breeches, Mrs. Coram, with the girls, carried to tbe safe covert of the trees such things of worth
as women could handle*. The new baby, most precious
of all, and the other little ones were left there, under the
care of the wondering Robert, And In a few minutes
more—ln time, thank Ood!—Martin and Lawrence and the
rest appeared, stumbling through the thicket, with the
great roll of the tent-cover. Two of the young fellows
climbed upon the roof of the cabin. There was time tMll
to do their work well, though they could sec that tiie
fire had turned the point, and could plainly hear Us roar
as It rushed through the tall grasses of the meadow,
cn which no rain hnd fallen for a fortnight. Before a
single burning leaf or straw fell upon It, the dangerous
thntch was covered with the canvas, and Martin at hli
post, Lawrence nt his, on th* leeward sldo of the roof,
were throwing water over the sheet, aa the hard-working
women supplied it ln buckets from below. The air
gTftw hotter and hotter, but thc women and the men
were wet from top to toe. and hardly felt or knew
whether they were hot or cold. Within thirty yards of
them there was nothing to feed the fire, A little Una of
maples, which had been spared In chopping, from some
Indian's talk of their sugar, parted the homestead lot
from the broken field. And. after a terrible hour, they
knew that the fire storm had passed them and wu
speeding Its way down the valley. Men and women, boyt
nnd girls, their faces were black with smoke and with
the crock of cinders.
The house was saved! Put*the harvest on the meadows waB gone! t )
Jotham and Robert were sent down ln Lawrence's
canoe to call hack poor Coram lo the scene of desolation, and on the night of the third day after the fir*

It wns Goodwlfe Coram who was encouraging her husband, and Patience who was trying to make hlm understand that things were really not as bad as they were
on the night when they gathered so hopefully at Water-

"For now. dear father." said the girl, "we have a

Modem life and its urtt-t.« environments
are responsible for this new division of pathology, which is now generally recognized
by physicians—the ills of which are startling
in number, aud as ruthless as they are insidious in attack.
OF ALL the latter-day ailments that are peculiar to
cities, agoraphobia Is perhaps the most typical.
Fiom tht* very nature of it, you would never eu-
tuur.ter It far from the skyscrapers.
it ls a nerve disease. The victim craves to be continually r..-ar some tall building. He may be recognized
by the hunted expression he wears going to or from his
office--for he Is usjally a man of business or profession.
Not unly the bustle of the streets, but the terrible strain
of modern city lift* :onducts to tbe remarkable state of
h> nervous system.
Close t'i the protecting walls of stone or brtek-and
nowhere else—he feels safe. Let his path be obstructed
60 that he h«s to tread near the curb, and his look becomes frightened, as If expecting Impending doom.
When he must cross a street, he stops, fidgets, steps
backward and forward hesitatingly, nnd flnallv makes a
mad niah-a do-or*di* movement. His mind Is constantly
repeating some Jargon such as: "Oh, for quiet' If 1 could
only be ln the country!"
Especially* does he fear brides. I.'sually, nfter loitering at a bridge approach for several minutes, hc desperately halls a cab and pays to be driven across; and, one*
Insld? the cab. he closes his eyes tightly, his heart beats
violently and his whole nervous system ts quivering until
terra flrma Is again reached.
Another form of the disease manifests Itself ln sneak*
iig through narrow alleys in an effort to get away from
the ..rowd aid noise. A; times the subject will cling
desperately to the rear end of a cart In crossing tha
street, and not Infrequently, If the street be wide, ho
will hire a cabby io take him across.
Usually this disease defies treatment. Two or three

required to upbuild the broken-down frame. Sleep! Yes,
there's the rub.
With the noise of the city, unremitting even at night,
sleep cannot be coaxed lo the tired one's couch; so,
after a while, complete breakdown follows. Night noises
are among the causes of city diseases with which physician* confess themselves unequal to cope.
Fully two-thirds of the residents of a large city live
on streets where the  noises keep up .almost all nighl.
Most noticeable is the street-car noise, which, ns Interested physleans suggest, could often be reduced by
greasing axles, repairing fiat car wheels, or by motor-
men refraining from sounding the gong upon the slightest provocation.
Then, ln many sections, there aro factory whistles
which t"ar loose at midnight, and again at li o'clock in
the morning, two hours before a large proportion of thn
people care lo be awakened.
In thc business sections drays and carls are kept
on tho go all night. This Incessant rumbling-especlally
over cobblestone streets—hue as frightful an effect on
the sleeper ns the constant jnbblng of hatpins Into him.
If he sleeps at all. It is an intermittent slumber, no better than a nightmare.
ln large manufacturing cities a quiet night Is out of
the question In these headlong times, when night shifts
aro necessary to supply the demands of trade.
No less conducive to neurotic conditions are the trains
which thunder through the densely populated sections at
ull hours—almost at all minutes—of the night. Their
peril Is a double one, for the smoke belched for squares
on each side of the track causes pulmonary troubles and
ailments of the eyes nnd nose.
H'-sldents In noisy localities sometimes sny they are
used to it. They may think so. Physicians say, however,
Especially are colds and respiratory diseases caused
by city dust. It Is, so physicians say, almost Impossible to take Into one's lungs on a city street any dust

tnrrh, pulmonary, eye, nose or throat affliction. If one's
constitution be very strong, the blood will overcomo the
unhealthy tendency In these Inhalations; If not, so much
the worse.
In a large city 75 per cent, of the population, probably, Is nflllctod with defective eyesight. Much of the
trouble is undoubtedly congenital; more Is the result of
eye strain. How much of this trouble may be attributed
to particles of dust, which Irritate the delicate machinery of the eye?
Akin to the dust evil Is the overcrowding In tenements, an exclusively city condition. In many such
cases three families occupy the same apartments. An
Investigation In New York recently showed 507*2 persons
occupying 370. rooms—little hallrooms at that. Of 726
families visited, only thirteen could be described as
living In sanitary rooms.

Especial tribulations assail the widow or widower
who may wish to marry again. It is essential that u
doctor's certificate telling of the dentb of the former
partner bo filed.
Not long ugo a widower was unable to marry again
hdbause he hud fulled to obtain thi necessary certificate from his deceased wife's physician, und the doctor
himself had passed to another world.
As n consequence of all this, many couples are now
being married by the civil authorities, who do not re-
quire so much formality.
others slip away to the nearest American city.

Vogue of Soft Silk for
Spring Gowns
WHATEVEB else n woman
may, or may not, include among her spring
and summer clothes,
sh.. should never omit, to plan for
at least one silk gown. Nothing
takes the place of il; that ic, nothing has hiirotoffirc, and it is more
than doubtful if the present soil
6on will develop anything proeticu
in the wny of u substitute.
Moreover, a good silk is capable
of being repeatedly remodeled, often giving iimre real satisfaction ,
fie nld senson llian lhe firsl.
The   silks   already   show..,   and
anything cumor whispers of thoso
that are to come, point to the fact
that it is to be u season of soft-finished, clinging fabrics. Soft, supple
tnffetu, chiffon and mcssaline taffetas, liniisii is, radiums, foulards,
raj'abs, nnd thnl delightful n.-w silk
very much liko radium, only infinitely cheaper, r.i.li.il.i—all will bo
tremendously in demand.
O.ie of the most conspicuous of
the spring stuffs is the rajah silk,
which i.s shown in ninny new color
combinations    and    designs.
The plaids .ire of every size and
width, gencrully of the lino stripe
New Silks
* Trinn
TIIK new designs of silk are
rather inconspicuous, chiefly tine hair-line stripes,
dots in ull sizes, rings und
small geometrical figures. Few of
tin* huge leaves und llowers that
were worn when foulard wus to the
front before ure now to be seen,
Taffetas, messalincs, louisincs
and othor soft silks huve so far little of startling novelty, Checks
un.l stripes are much seen, and u
whole range of new colors tli.it ure
slightly brighter in tone than tlie
soft pastel shades worn this last
Lace is to be the chief trimming
of the soft silks for spring, I hough
buttons, passementeries ami narrow
velvet ribbon will play prominent
and Their
puns. The heavier lt.ees, such H
cluny and Irish, ure most often
usi !, thoufh the thinner valeneiennes a. t-nil roidered batiste
bandings . and embroideiy ure
by no inc. • imshed into tho background, ii y stitched an.! shaped
bands ure also used uu both waist*
and skirts.
Bright silver net is u*--.l very satisfactorily for the evening huts.
Often a draped turban or a wide-
briiuiiied bat o.' silver laee or gauze
is seen, trimmed with fur, velvet
and tbe ever-present ostrich plumes.
White nml silver make a lovely combination for these evening hats;
pink and silver is almost, il noi
quite, ns pretty.

variety—a pluin ground barred
with lines of contrasting color.
Gray and white and chestnut brown
and white combinations arc particularly strong; gray, indeed, bids
fair to be as much, if not more,
worn than for several seasons past.
There are also inch wide stripes in
tan and white, combined wiih dull
green, violet, mahogany, lavender
an.l blue.
Foulards also ore to know a big
revival if all the indications hold
good. It is already being made ip
in considerable quantities for
Southern travelers.
There iB no radical change os
yet in the new models. The under
blouse of lace, net or sheer lingerie maintains its popularity of
the last winter. The iong shoulder line hns been slightly shortened, nnd ninny sleeve caps or short
outer sleeves nre shown over nnd
under soft sleeves of three-quarter
The models shown today ure spe
cially adapted to be made up at
once by the amateur dressmaker.
The lines, while good, ure simple,
and the trimming is not over-intricate. All of them are carried out
in the supple chilloit taffetas that
wear so much better than those
with much dressing.
Tho first model on the left is a
delectable crention of citron-colored taffeta, wi'h a soft vest of lace
in a deep cream color. Both skirt
and blouse are rather elaborately
trimmed with a inncy braid in a
combination of black, white and
citron color. Narrow black velvet
ribbon forms tlio lucing.
Very simple and attractive is the
next gown of dark blue taffeta in
the new matelot shade. This is a
particularly good stylo to copy, as,
though intended chiefly for a utility gown, it is yet sufficiently elaborate for more formal occasions.
The plain circular skirt is finished with n broad facing, stitched on
the outside. Similar stitching gives
quite a tailored effect to thu waist.
A tucked linge.' yoke is combined
with a gruceful vest of lrisl. laco.
Large buttons in several tones of
blue give un added touch of bounty.
Apple green taffeta, worn over a
blouse of lino cluny lace of a very
deep cream tone—almost a chant-
pngnoshade-forniB tl.o next charming gown. This is a particularly good model for the .lurk blue
or brown foulards or rnjuhs that
are intended for hard wear. Throe
circular graduutcd ruffles, headed
by stitched bands, mnke an attractive skirt trimming.
Another stylish blue gokn is seen
on tho last figure. The strnight,
somewhat severe lines of this are
espocially becoming to tho woman
inclined to embo.ipoint. The skirt
is laid in inverted box pleats both
front and bnck, nud is stitohed in a
slightly dark...* Bilk. The blouse is
finished in a stole effect, and is
worn with a yoke und underslcevc,
of baby Irish laco.
