Everyone should makca point of using his Individual influence, be it great
or small, to aid in bringing the Dominion Agrcultural Exhibition to the
Coast next year. Some persons have
thought that there Is no necessity to
commence the agitation a year ahead,
but the/ are greatly in error, as lt is
absolutely necessary to make the application to the Dominion Hoard of
Management thus early to secure Its
being admitted for discussion with
others for the ensuing year. There will
doubtless be great rivalry wilh the
other provinces of the Dominion as to
which shall get the Exhibition next on
account of the Large disbursement of
money it occasions in the district
wherever it may be located. Half a
million dollars spent In Vancouver anil
New Westminster In the course of
a few weeks would give a mighty impetus to trade, to say nothing of the
advt'i'tisinf and educational advantage*
lo be derived from the Exhibition Itself, therefore no effort should be con-
■ldertd too great and nothing that tan
be done should he left undone to secure
the Exhibition for next year. The
doubting Thomases, and there are i.
few even In Vancouver, can rest assured that tho Dominion Agricultural
Show Is no circus or labour street fair
concern for the purpose of making
money, but quite the reverse, as It will
cause an Immense Bum to be spent in
the Province and will certainly take
nothing out. Report says Victoria Intends making a big fight to get the
Exhibition held  In  that city.
Arrangements are being made to call
a pnblic meeting at an early date to
discuss tho matter.

"You are home early," said Mrs.
Maitland, when her sou came to toy
good-night about half-past ten.
"And you are late; I hardly expected
you to he still up."
"I have been spendiug the evening
with Mrs. Miles and Miss Vivian.
She could not come to rae because her
cousin  arrived to-day."
"Ah! what Is he like? What do yoj
think of him7" asked Maitland, eagerly.
"I cannot quite understood him; and
1 do not exactly like him. He win very
silent at first this evening; then he
burst into talk, and talked well enough."
"Do you think he Is more than a
cousin to Miss Vivian? Do you think
she will marry him?" asked MaitlauJ,
"It is impossible to say, I think not-,
I hope not- I fancy she is a litt'e nfr.i'd
of him. Why, what has put that ideal
into your h'cudV"
"Because—because I should like to
marry her myself."
"Yes," returned his mother, softly;
"I have seen that you love her; I wish
she may return your affection. She has
exactly the nature that would suit yo'i.
She would be a sweet daughter to me.
Do you think she likes you, Jack?"
"I cannot tell. I thought last Bpring
that if I had a fair field I might hove
won her, bat there was such a rascally
plot weaving round us at the time that
I was bound hand and foot. 1 will te'l
ycu all some day. Now I feel convinced
some one tibb put her against me. She
has changed; she distrusts me. I tried
to'draw her iato nu explnnnt'sn to-day,
but she showed a decided objection to
enter on the subject. Yet 1 have a sort
of instinctive feeling that she might
have loved me at one time." Jack paused his hand over his brow, but the
mother's loving eye* caught an expression of pain.
"You love her very much, dear?" she
silked tenderly.
"With all my soul!" said Jack emphatically- "Bat I hove lost heart since
she rebuffed me this morning. Still, t
will hold on a while longer. I will see
her nnd this cousin together and judge
for myself. If there's no hope I will b.'
on? liome."
"1 do not for a moment believe that
viii will find a rival in Mr. Vivian. I
do not think Edith is even glad when
he comes. She gives me the impression
of heiue afraid of him."
"Afraid? oh, that can hardly be. Well,
good-night. I fear I am not a lucky fallow, except In having such a dear old
mother." He stooped, kissed her affectionately, and went away to his

unrond, hut evidently considered that he
himself waa to be of the party.
At dinner he encountered Maitland,
who happened to sit next Editli, and did
his best to amuse and occupy her, not
unsuccessfully, for an ioiinutlon to

report of his speech respecting herself

very unfavorable to her *onse of enjoyment, for she waa strongly drawn to

by chance they spoke together Vivian
made a point of contradicting him on
every point in the roughest and most
abrupt manner. Maitiand bore ail this
with unshaken good-temper, occasional'
ly sending o keen, inquiring, anxious
t-'ltiiice across the table at hi* moody
Dinner over, Mrs. Maitland asked
Miss Vivian and her friends to tea la
her room, and though Vivian accepted,
he did not stay long. With a confused
ni-ology about haviog promised some
lows" to play a game of billiard* at
otel, he said good-night,
llis parting glance made Edith un-
eesy. It rested on Maitland with »j
murderous an expression of hate and
fury, that she could not collect her
thoughts for a few moments. What
danger did it threaten? or wa* her
fancy gr.wn morbid? She felt altogether unnerved and glad to retire,
though there hnd been pleasant moments duiing the evening.
-When David Vivian next presented
himself to his cousin he was iu a very
quiet, melancholy mood. It was after
luncheon, and he asked her to come out
for a walk. The afternoon was soft,
gray, autumnal aad Edith, glad to be
able to grant a request of his, at one*
"We will go toward Eastney," said
Vivian, a* they passed through ih*
porch. "There arc not *o many people

"Very well," returned Edith, meekly.
"So that fellow Maitland lives iu the
house,"   resumed   Vivian;     "I   *ee  him
writing Id hi*  room."
"It is nice for him to be with hi*
no.ther," sold Edith, turning her eyi-j
"Very likely," grimly. "Well, I'm not
Kiing to stay in the same bouse. I
moved off to the hotel last night, didn't
tbey tell you?—no?"
"You would hove been more comf'ict-
able here, would you not?"
To this David made no reply, and
they walked on almost .in *ileuce till
they reached a lend In the sea wall
.which commanded the view westward,
with the Martello Towers In the middle of tbe channel, and a glimpse of the
0maKt« in  the harbor beyond.
"Let  us sit down," said  Vivian,  abruptly.   "It is not too cold for you, ih?"
"Oh, not at all," returned Edith, whi
was feeling uncomfortable ut thl* long

brow in grent agitation. "When I first
raine over there was a good deal af
excitement about your affairs. I gut
better, calmer, stronger; but after a
bit the old craving came back. I have
something more to say. Do you te-
membet I once offered to marry you?
I didn't care much about it. but I
thought it might suit you at the time.
Now I want you to marry nie for my
sake. Don't shrink away as if yon feared me, Edith. You must marry me. I
i-i nnot live without you. You can save
me. If you are with me always, I shall
be able to resist; and I lore you, MttJe
cousin!—the sight of you is life to mel
I have been awfully bad since you came
away down here. I had some ha.-d
bouts before you left London, but list
week I waa mad drunk for three days
and nights. I gambled, lost a heap of
money, went down Into hell!" He stopped with a shudder. Edith was speechless.
"Of course," he resumed; "I never
came near you until I had got pretty
right, but I would not deceive you. It
is the one vice of my nature, and it leans
to every other- Now you know the
worst. WH1 you be my wife und save

Maitland dares to look at you and love
you! I'd like to cut his throat! Answer
me, Edith. Will you save me aud
marry me?"
She was deadly white. She had
scarce command of her voice from terror, but she forced herself to reply:
"I never dreamed you wished to
marry me, David. I have learned to
think of you as u dear brother. I will
do everything 1 can for you—but msn-
you, that I can not do."
"What is your objection?"
"Iu truth, I have not the comae*

He burst Into a mingled torrent ot
reproaches and entreaties, Edith
though tiembling from head to i'o. t.
continued tenderly, though firmly, to re

where she described to the aston'ahed
and sympathizing Mrs. Miles the hying
interview she had just hud-
"What will he do?" was Edith's cry
"He seemed quite out of his mind. I
am afraid of his hurting himself."
"Oh, no, I don't siiiipo-.-ie he will," re .
turned Mrs. Miles, soothingly. "He is
odd and eccentric, but 1 don't think he
is so foolish as to do himself any harm.
I will get Mrs. Parker to send round
to his hotel a little later ou, und fin.I
out if he hus couie in. She is a hit
huffed about his leaving her house, but
she is uot nu unreasonable woman."
"It is oil so unfortunate," said Edi-h.
"Whejt can we turn? Mr. Dargan
seems to have quarreled with you, and
Mr. Tilly is so undecided, and now we
have lost David! 1 shall always be
afraid of him, though I would give any
tiing to be able to help him, Ob, lummy  head aches and throbs!"
"Will you lie down? I will shut the
shutters, and Bit by you while you rest,
Perhaps you will get a little sleep."
Mrs. Parker's messenger reported
first that Mr. Vivian had gone out early
and had not yet returned; and on be'.n,;
again sent after dusk, brought work that
Mr. Vivian had just come in, and was
In his own room.
When Mrs. Parker's guests eat down
to dinner, Maitland was much exercised
In his mind by the absence of Miss
Vivian, especially aa Mrs. Miles' honest
face showel uneasiness and expectancy.
She glancrd ot the door, she forgot to
answer when spoken to, she scarcely
ate. He remembered eeeing Edith go
with her cousin in the afternoon, and he
drew the conclusion that they had come
to some understanding—or misunderstanding.
Vivian puzzled him, but he wa* Ve-
Kln«ung to suspect that he was either
a drunkard or aa opium eater. Such «
lelutive waa a grave misfortune to a
girl so unprotected a* Edith. He felt
strongly impelled to risk everything anl
ack her to be his wife.
"Mother, perhaps Mis* Vivian will
sie you?" he *aid, in a low voice, a*
tbey rose from table.
Bhe gave a little nod of .assent, and

portentous length, but she came at

forward; "well?"

The morrow brought a climax little
• • • •
Edith, wearied out, had slept well and
refreshingly. A bright morning he'ped
to cheer her, and she began to look
npon her distress nnd fright of the day
before as exaggerated and unreasonable. Yet she was still reluctant to let
Mrs. Miles leave her. Thi* cowardly
feeling she resisted, as she knew her o'd
friend wished to post a parcel to her
son, which she did not like to trust in
any hands save her own.
"Oh, yes; go, dear Miley," said Edith.
"I am too foolish. When you go I will
pay Mr*. Maitland a visit. I think Mr.
Maitland is going to the Isle ot Wight
to-day, and David cannot come to her
room. Indeed, he was so angry I do
not think he will see me. He has probably gone beck to  London."
"Yes, that is likely enough. Wei', if
you don't mind, I will go," and a few
minutes after Mrs. Miles took her departure.
Edith rang and sent up-stnlrs to ask
if Mrs. Maitland was alone, and would
like to be read to. The servant brought
an Immediate acceptance of the offer;
so Edith proceeded to look for a bod;
which Mrs. Maitland had expressed a
wish to see.
She was standing nt a bookshelf, with
her back to the French window, opening
Into the conservatory, when the sound
ot a footfall made her turn round. To
her dismay she saw David Vivian coming through the window, which wns a?
usual open. He must hnve entered by
the door which led into the veranda.
He looked very white. His eyes we.'e
bright and wild, but he seemed composed.
"I frightened you yesterday, I know
I did," said he, "I have been thinking
a great deal  since."
"Will you not sit down, David?" said
Edith, feeling that a crisis waa at hand.
"No; theie is no'use in sitting down,
I cannot rest. I must end all this. I
shall never leave off drinking; I know
it. I fsJiall go down—down. Now I
am determined that shall never be. You
wouldn't like to see me degraded, eh,
little cousin? You wouldn't like me to
be mocked und jerred at? No; aud il
would never do for you to stuy behind
nie. I have thought over all that; I can
keep myself in hand still. I was awfully tempted to finish Maitlnnd as 1 went
by and saw him." A terrible, fierce,
wild look came into his eyes. "But I
had a duty to accomplish, and I resisted—I resisted! Edith, life is hard on
us both. I am chained dowu by the
devil of drink; you ore drawn from me,
from huppiness, by thnt held Mnitlnnd.
1 will deliver ns both. Look here!" He
drew from his breast u long knife,
which he unsheathed, and looked carefully at the eruei, glittering blade, while
Edith stood petrified with terror, yet
keeping her wits about to know that
any fanprudeace, any attempt to call for
assistance, would be instant death.
"This will end all our troubles. I am
a sound believer, Edith, in spite of the
life I have led; and I know when I deliver you and myself from this fleshly
huek we shall be united and happy-
no more temptations or misunderstandings, but peace, rest. You mustn't be
frightened, little darling; it will not
hurt you long. I know the spot in thut
white neck where I can strike, and
reach your heart in half a second; then
I will end my own troubles, and we
shall live together through eternity.
Don't look at the door. I'd be sorry to
hurt you, but if you try to get away
I will. I will never let you out of this
alive." He spoke with incerdible
"I am not going," said Edith, with
marvelous, desperate self-control. "I
think your plan is a good one, for life
is so piizzlin: ."
The uufoi .nate madman's countenance relaxed. "Ah, that is right. You
nre true, after all; come-"
"One thing, however, I must do before—before we die. I promised Mrs.
Parker to water the ferns iu the conservatory. I cannot break my word
at such a lime."
"All, perhaps; yes, you ought not."
"There are two watering-pots; will
ycu help mc?"
"Yea, yes; we will get through
He thrust the knife back into its
sheath, and replaced it in his breastpocket.
With agonizing tension of nerve, and
in earnest, silent prayer to God", Edith
went to a tap neor the window and
filled one of the watering pots which
hung there, giving him the other. Vivian
wns soon eagerly at work, while she
went to the other side and advanced
ns rnpldiy as she dared. If—if only Ihe
door iato  the   veruuda  was open!
"You do not get on us fust as I do,"
cried Vivinn.    "I must get more water."
"There is  plenty  in  the    tap,"   said
Edith, feeling as if sho could hold out
uo longer.
Vivian turned sharply aud went
back, talking all the time.
Then Edith stole forward, saw the
door was open, and fled wildly through
the veranda—not Into the house, not to
call assistance, but to Jack Moitland'a
rooms. She felt sure that the moment
A'ivian missed her be would rush to
wreck vengeance on hi* supposed rival.
Muitlaud was writing, us he often
did, at a table beside the window, which
was open. He wa* resting hf> head on
his hands, thinking over his mother**
advice, and balancing the proa and ooo>,
when Edith, white as death, her eyes
wild with terror, flew into the room.
Maitland started up, hi* first Idea be-
ing that the wa* making her escape
from danger or pursuit; but before he
could apeak she began In frantic hast*
to close the window, then the shutters.
while she kept repeating, "Lock the
door—bolt itl oh, do', do lock it!"
I "What 19 the matter, for heaven'*
sake?" cried Maltla-.-d- "My dear Mis*
Vivian, tell me. You are safe with me."
"No, not I want to save you! He
will murder you! Oh, come back into
the corner I Do not hold me; I must
fasten the door!" Then leaning back
against it, exhausted, she went on:
"He is mad—quite mad, David is. He
wanted to murder me. He was very
near murdering you. He will come
now; he has a long, keen knife." Here
n step was head in the passage. Quite
beside herself with fear, Edith daitel
to Maitland and threw her arms around
him. "He is coming—he is coming,"
she whispered,  as she clung  to h in.
"Dearest," eald Maitland, straining
her to his heart, "you will be ill. Lot
me take you to my mother. If your
unfortunate cousin is mad, he must
be presented from doing mischief to
himself or others.    You are trembling;
Maitland; "he would have been here
before. Let nie take you away; I mint
know what is going oa." Slill supporting her, h« opened the door; till was
quiet, but a distant buzz of talk came
from the hall, i "You must come upstair*. You shall be safe with my
mother.    I will see to it."
Half-leading, half-carrying her, Maitland took Edith with infinite care to his
"She has had an awful fright," he
«aid; "get her some wine. I scarcely
know what is the matter; bat don't
leave her. I shall return when I find
Mrs. Miles."     __________________
"My dear child, you are more dead
than alive," cried Mrs. Maitland. "Put
her on the Bofa,  Jack." ^J^_^_
Edith conld not speak- She tried srbill
to hold Maitland, but he, gently kissing
her hand, disengaged himself and bur
ried away.
In the hall he found Mrs. Parker anl
all the servants talking eagerly. "Oh,
Mr. Maitland!" said the ludy of the
house, "we are all so frightened. Tom
here—he is the boy that cleans the
boots—about ten minutes ngo he saw
Mr. Vivian without his hat, and a great
long knife 1n his hand, tenriag across
the lawn as hard as he could, and looking quite wild."
"Indeed!" cried Maitland. "What
direction did he take?''
"He turned left, and ran straight to
ward the beach,"
"He tamed left and ran straight toward  the  beach,"  said the boy.     "He
seemed to come from    Miss    Vivian'
"Good gracious! I hope he hasn't
hurt the dear young lady," cried Mm,
Parker, fussing away in the direction
of her room.
"Miss Vivian is rjuite safe with my
mother," said Muitlund, reaching his hat
and sallying forth to see what eonld be
done to capture the lunatic.
Mrs. Miles' dismay can be imagined
when, on her return, she learned the
terrible news of poor Vivian's outbreak-
It was some little time before Edith
was able to give an account of her
hair-breadth escape, or before she could
speak to Maitland- She felt certain
that in her immense excitement she had
betrayed herself. She louged, yet dreaded to see him.
"Do teil me something of my pon
cousin," she said to Mrs. Maitland, who
was sitting with her in the room to
wliich she had removed, as the association with the other  was too terrible.
"I am afraid, dear, he is a very hopeless case. He was found struggling
with a policeman aud an artillery soldier, who managed to get his knife from
him, and they took him to the police-
station, then to the infirmary. We
have written to a friend in London, and
■Tuck see9 that proper care is taken of
him, bat"—looking to the door—''here
is my son. He will teil you more particulars Mum I can."
As she spoke Jack Maitland came in,
and while he shook hands with Edith,
who rose to greet him, llis mother
quietly left the room. It was a moment of profound embarrassment. Edith
scarce kuow how to, speak or what to
fay. He, however, soon relieved her of
thut difficulty.
"I am sorry to see that you have not
quite recovered the dreadful shock you
have sustained- Your hand is not steady
yet," nnd he held it a moment in both
his own.
"I am much better," retained Editli,
resuming her seat on the sofa, "But
it will be long before I can forget thnt
dreadful day; and my poor cousin
David, my heart aches for him."
"Ay, poor fellow, I am heartily sorry
for him; but I want to speak somethin.
else—something which concerns the
happiness of my life. You must know
what it is. I hnve longed for weary
months to say, 'I love you, Edith,' and
even now I dread lest the avowal may
part instead of uniting us, so uncertain
am I of your feelings toward myself.
I had almost despaired, when soinethin;.
in your fears for mc that day—soaie-
thiag lu the clasp of your arms, which
has haunted nie ever since, guve me
a faiat hope. My wishes no doubt have
led me to exaggerate a natural humane
impulse." He paused, and Edith, half
charmed, half frightened, made a little
hesitating movement as if to give him
her hand, and then drew back. "Ah, you
distrust nie," cried Maitland. "Why?
What is the cloud which has arisen between us? Do be caadid with me; do
not keep me in the torture of suspense."
"I have been vexed with you," began
Edith, with natural sweet frankness,
"and I am almost ashamed to say Why.
But I will tell you. When you went
away to Scotland I was sorry.. You al-
wuys seemed true and earnest—a real
friend, and I said I was sorry. Then
Mrs. Winington told me you were pleased to go—beeuuse—because you thought
I was in love with you, and showed it
too much," The last words came out
slowly, while the pale, delicate face wa*
dyed with blushes.
"It wns an infernal lie," burst out
Jack Maitland, with more energy than
politeness, "invented by an unscrupulous woman. Look in my eyes, Edith,
nnd teil me whom will you believe—
Mr*. Winington or me. I am Incapable of making such a speech about
any women."
She raised her  eye*  to his;  then   a
soft, eliy mile broke over her face, and
•he wild very low and steadily:
"I believe you."
"Then one difficulty is removed. Now
1 am so fur from so presumptuous an
opinion as Mr*. Winington attributed
to me, that I am atill waiting in infinite anxiety for your decision. Edith,
I have loved you ulmott from tha beginning of our acqunintance; can you
give me n little In return 7"
He held out hi* hand, and Edith put
hers Into it.
"Dearest," he exclaimed, drawing her
close to him, "put your arnis round mo
us you did the other day, and say,
'Jack, I lor* you!'" He raised her
bands to his neck and clusped ber to lis
heart with passionate force. "Whisper
it to me, und I will be content."
But he had scarce heard the word*
si.ftly murmured when a long, fervent
kiss stopped further utterance—past,
present uud future ell merged in that
intense moment.

So Edith's troubles in this stage of
her existence were over. Dnrgun dared
offer no opposition to the marriage—
Tilly was gisd to get rid of the responsibility.
Edith's husband, as nearest of kin,
wus uppolnted guaiduin of tlie lunatic.
He was tenderly cared for, and when
his attendants deemed it safe, Edith
visited him and listened to his long
rambling hunting stories.
In all places of fashionable resort tho

I had been knocked down by a cab
on the streets of Pails and taken to a
hospital. I wns hurt about tbe head
and shoulders, and, though I had no
broken bones to mend, I was so badly
bruised that the surgeon told mo I
wouldn't get out for a month. Hard
up though I was in a financial sense, I
had enough money In my pocket to get
me Into a pay ward, nnd they gave me
one of the 14 cots on the third floor

to the seventh window, counting from

The routine of a hospital for an In-
jured man Is a monotonous one. After
the first three or four days they put
me on full diet nnd gave me books to
read, but I could not leave my bed, and
It was against the rules to converse
with the other patients. It was read,
sleep, think and plan, with one visit a
day from the surgeon. I could not see
the street from my window as I sat
propped up on my cot. The only sight
to greet my vls'on was a qunlnt old
bouse opposite. The structure wan
two stories high, end I could see the
upper halves of four windows. The
house looked to have been built 100
years ngo and w«s In a sad Btate of
neglect aud untenanted. I don't know
Why I should hnve been Interested In
that house except that a sick msu will
turn to tbe veriest trifle *o make a diversion. I saw by tbe state of the windows that the housi was tenantless,
and yet I had the curiosity to question
the nurse nbout it.
"That house has been emDty for
many years," she replied, "nnd as It Is
In law It will probnbly fall down before the heirs come Into possession.
You cannot s°e thnt fnr down, but the
lower doors nnd windows are boarded
up to keep tramps out I hnve often
wondered lf the place has not a ghost."
1 fell Into the habit of watching thos»
four windows as closely as lf I had
been employed as a watchman. It
seemed that If I waited long enough 1
should see a face at one of them. When
evening came, there was an electric
light somewhere which struck tb» front
of the old house, ond 1 would wateb
those windows until the nurse enjoined
me to turn nwoy and go to sleep. It
got eo nt last that I felt certain of making a discovery, end one evening, when
1 hsd been In the hospital nine or ter
days, the face I had looked for appeared at one nf the middle windows. It
wss that of a mnn.
The window was 150 feet, from me.
bnt by tbe assistance of the electric
light I made out the face very clearly.
It camo l"to view gradually, as lf the
man slowly advanced across the room,
and It remained at the pancless sash
for a full minute. It was the face of
an evil man. It was dark and benrdpd,
and tbe eyes traveled up and down and
across tbe street as If looking for danger. Whoever tbe man wns he was no
tramn, nor had be a lnwful right In
that house. As he left tbe window I
etllert to tbe nurse ard told ber of hi*
presence, but she laughed nnd replied:
"Ah, but we are net to concern ourselves about what Roes on over there.
If It Is some prowler who ban broken
In, the police must take care of him."
I uow hpd something to occupy my
full attention, and I gave up everything to wnt"h the windows opposite.
Nothing appeared next day, but at
about half past 8 o'clock In the evening: 1 *nw the name fnce again. There
wag more boldness In the way tbe man
spDroicbed tbe window, and be seemed to feel himself more secure as be
surveyed the street If be were not s
fugitive In hiding, why should be be
taking peeps at the neighborhood' A
vagabond, having entered to obtain
shelter for the right, would keep clear
nf the windows. On this second nlgbt
the mnn seemed, to be looking Intently
st the sidewalk running In front of the
hospital, nnd b.v nnd by be started and
turned away as If he hnd received
some signal. When the nurse csme, 1
told her of tb» Incident She waa as
much amused as before.
"Yon certainly hnve a mind for mysteries," ahe laughed, "but If you become too Interested you will develop a
fpver and have a pnllbnck. When you
are able to leave us, you can tell the
police about the man, who will probably turn out to be a shadow."
1 gave tbe window? but little attention In the daytime after that The
face appeared on tbe third evening nt
thp snme hour, and 1 felt so sure that
n confederate made signals from the
sidewalk that I took a convalescent Into my confidence. He was an old soldier who wns being treated for rn old
wound nnd wns allowed tbe run of the
place. 1 told blm of the face and the
confedernfe, and he was Interested at
oucp. It was arrpnged thnt he should

dressed but evil looking mac mnke

by nny one not on t e wntch for them. |
"Now. then," snld the old soldier as
he returned and reported, "we have a
mystery on hand. Luck has thrown It
In our way that we may make u few
goidpleces. Let us work It out together aud share tbe reward."
None of us In the ward had seen a
newspaper for a week. They were not
interdicted, but none of the patients
seemed to care for outside news. Next
morning the soldier went out and purchased the journals for the previous
five or six days, and ns we looked them
over we struck a sensation. A boy 10
years old, the son of a rich Iron founder, bad been kidnaped and spirited
away, and lt was stated that the whole
police force of Paris was on tbe qui
vive. The kidnaping had taken place
three days before I saw the fnce af
tbe window, and 1 was arguing that
our mystery could have nothing to do
with it wben the soldier said:
"It Is at least 12 miles from here
where the lad was picked up. He was
probably hidden somewhere else for a
dav or two, but the scent got bo hot
tbat be was moved. Don't you fear
thnt. he la not In the old bouse opposite
at this very moment."
"Then we should Inform the police."
"Pooh! We must wait for a reward
to be announced. Never slap luck In
tjj. face."
On the fourth nlgbt and fifth nlgbt
the face appeared at the window at
the usual hour, and the same man
made tbe usual signals. As tbe police
were yet at fanlt, those signals must
have meant thnt things were all right
for tbe kidnapers. It was now eight
days since the boy was taken, and as
no trace could be had of him It was believed tbat he had been killed or taken
out of tbe country. Tbe papers gava
It to the police pretty hot, and It was
Intimated that tbe father was ready to
nay almost any sum to have his child
"Now we are coming nearer to It,"
snld the old veteran. "What the kidnapers bave been waiting for Is the reward, but we must be ahead of them.
You have some money, but I bave
none. You must give me enough to
tnke tre across Paris to the father."
It had come to be understood In our
corridor that we had some scheme,
hut we refused to answer any questions. Tbe soldier started off one
morning, nnd before noon be was holding an Interview with the father of the
.iirhieted boy. The distracted man
wns willing to give bis last franc, but
tbe soldier stopped at 20,000. He got
a promise In writing tbat be nhould be
nald that sura whpn the boy was delivered up, nnd then he went to the police
to find If there waa ft reward for
any nartlcularly desperate character.
Th»re was. It was believed In police
circles tbat tb.9 kidnapers were two escaped convicts, and there was a reward of 10,000 francs on the head of
either. When It had been agreed to
give blm half the reward, the veteran
gave our mystery away. The police
waited until evening and then caught
the confederate on the street after he
hnd signaled his "All right." Half an
hour later they surrounded the old
house, broke their way In and not only
found th» other convict, but found the
kldDapod boy a prisoner In one of tbe
rooms. The lnd had been fairly well
treated, but had been closely guarded
every hour since he hnd come Into the
man's bands. He had seen only tbat
oue man nnd bad been told that he
wonld b» set at liberty when bis father
hnd pnld 250.000 francs as a reward.
The old noldler divided fairly with
me, and we were not only enriched by
the double reward, but were the means
of returning to custody two as desner-
ate criminals as ever broke bars. It
wns considered an Incomprehensible
thing around the hospital, and doctor,
nurse and fellow patients were never
tired of saying:
"How strange!   You lie In your bed
and  look at tbo windows of nn old
bouse across the way, nnd, lo, there
come 15,000 francs rolling In to youl"

Man and Beast,
Nothing can be so terrible to an animal an a human being. There are times,
when the brute oeems to recognize Instinctively thnt man belongs to a higher order of creation and Is stricken
wltb a feeling akin to awe in bis presence.
In a small African village, some
yenrB ago, there was a scare about
some leopards which were said to have
killed a number of goats. Accordingly
two white men, accompanied by sev«
eral natives, set off to hunt them. Pres-
ently they found n place In the long
grass where It was evident that one of
the brutes bed recently lain, for the
ground was still warm.
The natives formed a ring round It,
and tbe hunters got tbelr guns ready.
After a little while tbe leopard emerged from the long grass and was fired at
nnd wonnded, but not fatally. With a
great bound be sprang on one of the
white men and brought him to tbe
(rroiind. Holding hlg victim, he turned
and growled savagely at the otbera.
Tbe nntlves gave a wild yell of fear,
snd then like a shot the leopard aprang
away. He hnd not been frightened by
tha cutis, hut the yell terrified him.—

tio—'  Breach   of Promise  Case*  Are
Averted In Hnncarr.
, "There are many curious and Interesting   facts   regarding  the   marriage
' and divorce laws of foreign countries,"
said R. J. Brown, wbo recently returned from a trip abroad, where be made,
a study of the question.
"Breaches of promise are averted In
Hungary by an express declaration of
. tbe civil marriage act that the relations
(created by a betrothal do not give the
. right to command tbe conclusion of a
marriage, but lf either party withdraws from an engagement without
just  reasons  he or  she  Is  bound  to
' grant compensation to the extent of
the outlay Incurred. Divorce In tbe
English senae does not exist but the
courts can decree the personal separation of a married couple without dissolving the bonds of mntrimony.
"A curious law prevailing In France
provides   that  before   being   married
! children of a family, although over
age, shall geek in respectful and formal terms tbe advice of their father and
mother. It makes no difference, however, whether the consent ot parents Is
given, for the couple can be married a
month after under any circumstances.
This Is also tbe case In tbe Netherlands. A divorce further entitles tbe
lnnoceut party to recover all the presents be or she may have made.
"According to the constitution of the
Netherlands, the civil marriage must
always precede the religious ceremony.
The latter, Indeed, is left entirely to
tbe conscience of tbe parties concerned. There is also a law providing that
no man or woman under thirty can
marry without the consent of parents.
It the consent be refused, the couple
have to appear before a judge, wbo
advises them as be thinks best.        J

avenue opposite this show ground be

showman standing at the door of a
small tent, lu front of which was a
garish caricature of a nondescript animal supposed to represent the "woolly

Of the master musician, the blackbird, he says:
"This bird Is known by all persons
and Is better to be eaten than kept,
being much sweeter to tbe palate when
dead and well roasted than to tbe ear
while living; sings about three months

song is worth nothing, but it he be
taught to whistle he Is of some value,
being very loud, though coarse." What

And hero Is a story of tbe squirrel
with the ring In lt of tbe seventeenth
even more than the eighteenth century.
It reminds one of the bares of Izaak
Walton, that changed their sexes once

"If what Is reported of them be true
tbe admirable cunning of the squirrel
appears in ber (where we commonly
use 'his' when the se't need not be specified our ancestors often used 'her') swimming or passing over a river, for when
Bhe Is constrained by hunger so to do
she seeks out some rind or email bark
of a tree, which she sets upon the water
and then goes into It, and, holding up
her tall like a sail, lets the wind drive
her to tbe other side and carries meat
In her mouth to prevent being famished
by the length of the voyage."
Of the wild boar we bave this: "And
what place soever he bites, whether
man or dog, the boat of his teeth
causes Inflammation In the wound. If
therefore he does but touch tbe hair of
a dog he burns off—nny, huntsmen have
tried the heat of his teeth by laying
hairs on them as Boon as he was dead,
and they have shriveled up as lf touched with a hot Iron."

Dutch customs still prevail to a surprising extent In the old villages up

a summer home Is confronted by Some
bewildering conditions.
While water aad the scrubbing brush
were and are much in evidence, tbe
sanitation of the bedrooms does not
meet modern requirements. In fact,
unless the house has beeu materially
altered there were no bedrooms, distinctly such, but from each of the five
rooms on the one floor, kitchen, Included, open recesses or alcoves just large
enough to contain a double bed, says
the Brooklyn Eagle.
These used to be filled with "four-
posters," having trundle beds beneath,
so that a family of twenty persons was
easily accommodated, and, lf necessary, more people could be placed In
tbe open garret, generally reserved for
storage purpose*.
Reverence for the past and its traditions may Induce tbe bouse mistress
to put her bed In such an alcove at
first, but one night's experience of Its
stuffiness usually suffices, especially as
lt is impossible to make the bed unless
It 1* rolled out dally, for no space was

Weyburn, Assa., N.W.T., Jan.  II,—f
(Special)—Na   more  remarkable  cure
of dropsy has ever been put on record
than that of little Edith Harris, the j
two-year-old     daughter    of Mr.  and
Mrs. It. J. Harris of this place.
The littlo girl had dropsy In It*
worst form. She was swollen from
her feet to her shoulders so badly
that the doctor was afraid one of her
feet would .burst. Her natural waist
measure was eighteen inches, but
when the disease was at its worst,
she measured thirty-four inches. Two
doctors attended her, but aftor three
months struggle with the disease the
child was gradually growing worse,
and the parents had about given up
all hope oi saving the life of their
At this time they determined to try
Dodd's Kidney Pills. Imagine their
surprise and delight when under this
treatment the child began to rapidly
improve. By the time she had taken
three boxes, half a pill at a doso, the
swelling was gone and the helpless
little invalid was transformed into a
merry laughing healthy child again.
Dodd's Kidney Pills cure old and
young alike. They cure kidney disease without regard to where or in
what form It is found.

Archbishop Howley, who lived In the

the reputation of swearing like a trooper. The explanation is that the Duke
of Cumberland, wbo fought the battle
of Cullodcn and wbo was unspeakably
profane, once went lu quest of tbe
primate to get bis assistance about a
certain bill wblcb be disliked. He returned to the bouse of lords, Baying:
"It's all right, my lords. I've seen the
archbishop, and he Bays he'll see the

the profanity bad been supplied quite

On oue occaulou Disraeli's liublt ot

to ber advantage tbat be was driven to
save tbe situation In a way tbat was
very far from being appreciated. Tbe

views," finding tbe great man so exceedingly profuse In big attention*,
tbougbt It an excellent opportunity for
making blm a convert to ber utoplau
Ideals, wblcb were of tbe most daringly
democratic order. After a long recitation of ber propaganda sbe wound up
witb a fervid appeal to tbe prime minister to Immortalize himself by espousing ber Ingenious panacea for remedying tin- wrong* of biimiiiiity. As ibe
Snlslicd ber impassioned birangue,
witb flushed cbeeks and flashing eye,
Disraeli, who had been silently watching her wltb apparently the profound-
1st syiuputhy and admiration, suddenly
dropped bis cyeglua* and aoftly murmured, "Oh, you darling!" "If It bad

Drldiro   lliiil.llnu-   Brotherhood*.
It was in Franca that brotherhoods
for building bridges first took shape.
In 1178 a bridge was begun over tbe
Rhone at Avignon by Salut Benezet,
the bend of a body called Kratres Ponds, who undertook the building and
repairing of bridge* during tbe mlddl*
age*. A second soon followed ut Nt.
About tbe same time Peter of Cole-
cburcb, tbe heud of a similar brotherhood In Englund, began tbe first ston*
bridge over the Thames at London.
lu many cases when a bridge wa*
built a chapel was founded, to wblcb
a priest was attached to pray for th*
soul of the founder, to receive money
and to offer prayers with the paasen-
gers for n safe Journey.

During the past week "The Advo
eate" 1ms had the contract for City
Advertising confirmed aud in con. e-
qhebce been very discourteously uttnek-
ed by oue daily pnper nud one
Alderman—Stewart. Alderman Stewart stated In the Council meeting he
"had received a copy of ' Tbe Advocate'
bnt conld not make head or tail of it M
it was on'- blot.' (Laughter)."—News-
Advertiser. What puzzles us is to know
who sent the paper to the humorous
councilman, tor we lind forgotten there
Was «n Alderman Stewart; however
we will take his word . that be 'did
receive a blotted or blurred copy of
''The Advocate." It happens sometimes
that blurred copies are turned off, but
never knowingly sent out of the office.
"The Advocate" begins the Sixth year
of its existence April 8th, and it is not
reasonable to believe the large number
' of intelligent subscribers, advertizes
nnd friends who have supported it so
long are so inferior in judgement to
Alderman Stewart, nor is it left for him
to fix a status lor this paper I
As tor the unfavorable reports and
common ts of the daily referred to we
prefer to believe them the over zealous
efforts of a callow reporter, who con-
; founds attacks on other publications
with loyalty to his employer,
and whose Very severe criticisms
escaped the notice of the Managing
Editor. We will have to try and survive it all, though we feel the attack
, has been unwarranted.

As to color, a comparatively plain
and colorless woman will brighten up
wonderfully and look almost, lf not
actually, pretty when the soft (lush of
a rose-colored or pink gown is next her
In pink, clear tones are most worn
for the reason that they are most generally becoming. There Is a shade of
pink known as shrimp pink that makes
the complexion of a few women look
dazzling and completely spoils what
good looks another woman may possess.
In this season, when pink Is so much
worn, lt Is a good idea for a woman to
lind out what shade will best become
her for wearing it.
Another thing readers might like to
know Is how to make chiffon flowers to
decorate sheer frocltB in the pretty and
popular fancy of the season for this
form of lloral adornment.
Of course, amateur fingers cannot do
as good work as those skilled In the
art of flower making. Very pretty
rotes might be made by gathering one
side of a bias fold of chiffon until four
Katlieied hits were formed', and then
the four f.i.'itened together with a centre of chenille. That la nbout the gen-,
eral appearnric* of moBt chiffon roses.
Some have niuny petals and Home only

Many women accustomed to taffeta
lining fur everything ask what Czar
silk is—a form of lining. It is a soft,
durable silk that looks a trifle like serge
silk, but which is given to soft and
pretty folds.
than any other, and a better recreation
for women than for men, from both
the health and the^ pleasure point of
view, since lt gives grace and strength
to  the entire body."
This Is truly the day of the automobile, and the Queen has quite adopted
the motor car for her own expeditions.
During the last residence of -the Cqurt
at Windsor she might have been seen
in her neat automobile bowling along,
while the King was shooting or otherwise occupied.
The car Her Majesty uses is a very
pretty turnout, dark maroon in color,
with crown displayed In gold.
Prayer-making of an original fash-
Ion Is being conducted by certain ladies of fashionable society In their efforts to advance a Young Women's
Christian Association.
Some of the leaders in the movement,
dressed In the height of fashion, assemble at the Headquarters of the Association In the Boulevard Perlere, and
there offer prayers for a heavenly endorsement  of  their efforts.
The Countess de Coetlegen holds the
record thus far the most original form
of intercession. It would appear that
these ladles of society have not had
much practice at prayer-making und
their intlal efforts are curious specimens of supplication.
Among the ladles who have distinguished themselves in this form of exercise are Mrs. Hobart Chatfleld-
Taylor. the Countess de Trobrland, the
Countess de Cherselles, who was Miss
Vnn Dusen Reed, and Mrs. Robinson
Bowling is the fashionable outdoor
amusement of the day, but by bowling
Is meant the ancient game of "bowls,'
that which used to be played on the
Bowling Green In New York and not
that of ten pins in an alley.
Encouraged by the example of King
Edward and Pi Incess Victoria, the
world which amuses Itself has latterly
taken up this placid game, though entiling much less fatigue than tennis,
equally affords an opportunity for
spending hours in -the open air and
displaying a new gown. Thus the
"bowls" frock threatens to become as
much a part of the smart matron's
wardrobe as the "bridge" blouse.
In the old days every house of Importance In the country possessed Its
bowling green, where the gallants and
belles of a less energetic century killed time and made eyes and praceised
graceful attitudes.. In the majority of
cases the Old World bowling green has
been transformed into the modern tennis lawn and hostesses who are arranging for a bowls season are laying out
fresh greens in readiness for the Sum-

Lady Colin Campbell, who Is the
sister-in-law of the Duke of Argyll, Is
unceasing in her endeavor to persuade
women that fencing is one of the very
beat sports to whlo. hthey can devote
themselves. She declare that it de-
velopcs every muscle in the body, without developing any particular one at
the expense of the other; that lt teaches
quickness of eye and comprehension,
the power of seizing an opportunity
and taking advantage of an opening,
and, above all, she says, "It ought to
teach loyalty, good manners and good
