CHAPTER VII.
Oscar Glendenning paused and
looked anxiously over his shoulder.
There was certainly no mistake: somo
one was following him; the pnrty
that had followed him through each
successive corridor had now doubled
his  pace.
The thoroughfare was crowded,
but not even mingling with the
throng  dispelled  his  fears.
As he hurried along the street, as
quickly as he could push his way
through the dense throng, his attention was attracted at the first cor-
,.„r !.„ ,,.,.,....i  i,,.  „  .., - "ideavdring
to dispose of a young horse.
l_rleiluuiiuiiig s_^..>_- . _>.i-.>i _-; a sudden idea had com? to him; he stepped up to the man quickly.
"What is your price for that animal?"   he asked,   nervously.
"Two hundred and fifty dollars,
sir," returned the man. "He's worth
twice that, sum, but the trouble is
I'm in a tight place; I must sell him;
*-"
"Here's your money," cut in Glendenning, counting' out the bank-notes
and thrusting them into the man's
hand.
An instant more and he was in the
saddle.
Glancing back over the heads of
the swaying crowd, Glendenning saw
that he had indeed great cause to
fear; it was indeed the same olficer
that had been pointed out to him
while he. was sitting on the balcony.
He was tearing madly down the
street, waving a paper in his hand,
and gesticulating wildly as he pointed toward Glendenning.
"He will seize upon the first horse
that he can lay his hands on, and
be after me," he thought,- turning
pale to the lips; "but," and here the
hard lines tightened about his
mouth, "if he and I meet, there will
be but one of us left to tell of the
encounter."
On, on rode Oscar, Glendenning
with the speed of the wind, taking
little heed of which direction he
went; that mattered very little to
him.
The daisy-strewn valley road near
Hempden village, in the heart of
Louisiana, was one of the prettiest
spots the golden sunshine ever fell
upon.
Who could have imagined that! ere
the setting of the sun on the lovely darkness opriight settled
summer day on which our story opens, it would be the scene of a tragedy, and the modest violets and nodding wild-flowers would be stained
with a human being's life-blood.
The only sound that broke '.he
stillness of the drowsy noon hour
was the hum of the restless bees, the
murmuring breeze stirring the leaves
of the grand old magnolia boughs,
and the far-off sound of a horse's
hoofs adown the white winding
stretch of country road.
Nearer dash horse and rider swiftly as the wind, so near that one
eould see now that it was Oscar
Glendenning; and as the dense cloud
of dust cleared away, one could also
see that the animal was covered
with foam, and the handsome, desperate face of the hatless horseman
was white and haggard with long
riding. He had been over eighteen
hours in the saddle.
At the fork of the road he suddenly   drew  rcirt.
"Well, old boy," he cried, hoarsely, patting the quivering horse's
neck with his white hnnd, "which
road do  we take,   I  wonder?"
The sign-boards that pointed either
way were old and weather-beaten,
and the names they originally bore
were entirely obliterated; but on the
board which pointed to the left,
nome mischicvoulsy inclined person
had cut the words, "The Way to Destruction."
The handsome horseman ^smiled
grimly as his keen blue eyes fell upon this. "We will take the road to
'destruction,' " he muttered; "we've
gone quite a little way on it already, speaking -literally. It's the
broadest road, looks as if it waa
the most traveled, and must lead to
Hempden. By this time those whom
we have left bo far behind us have
discovered—"
The rest of the sentence was never
finished, for the horse had suddenly
stopped short, shied sideways in the
utmost terror, and woultl have
wheeled about but for the strong,
determined hand" that held the reins
and the quick succession of blows
that fell on his quivering flank.
Again the horse shot forward, and
mile after mile was stretched quickly
b—lind  horse  and  rider.
"Wc are on the wrong road, I am
alraid," muttered Glendenning, again
drawing rein sharply. "This must be
the swamp road; yes, and, by the
eternal, we arc well into the quagmire." ,-.
A fierce, impatient imprecation
broke from his lips; already the animal was plunging ankle-deep in the
Ircicheroua     croupd,    and    sinking
deeper with every step.
He loosened his hold on the reins
and turned half around in tho saddle an instant. That, action was fatal; feeling himself free from all restraint, the animal suddenly wheeled
about, and in a twinkling the horseman was unseated and flung among
the bushes, face downward, in tho
long swamp-gruss. and the horso. Iri»»
as the wind,  was lost to sight    thu
next moment.
Glendenning attempted to struggle
to his feet, then a groan of agony
broke from his lips, and he foil back
half fainting among the long, poisonous grasses and  tufted weeds.
"I am done for now!" he cried",
"my right ankle and my left arm
must be broken—they are broken.
Will they overtake me, lying here
helpless and at their mercy? No, no;
I will kill myself first! They shall
never take mc alive;  I swear it!"
He sunk back with a groan, weak
from horrible pain and the loss of
blood that flowed from a deep gash
in his  arm.
"1 am dying!" he cried. "If I call
will any one hear, I wonder. Is thero
no human being near in this wilderness of swamp?" He tried to call
out, but tho cry died away on his
lips in a terrible moan of pain. "To
die like this!" he cried; "I who have
lived a lifo that a prince of the royal blood might have envied. To floe
from the great metropolis only to
find death in a Louisiana swamp! It
is  too horrible!"
For an instant his great pain overcame him, and ho lay panting and
almost lifeless, with the scorching
sun pouring on his upturned face,
while the wild-flowers and tender
grasses about him were dyed with
the crimson tide that flowed from
his wound.
Oscar Glendenning was fair and
handsome evon with tbat awful pallor on his face. His eyes were large
and blue, and the hair that waved
back from his broad white brow was
thick, brown a*d luxuriant, and thn
drooping brown moustache with its
curling ends half revealed and half
concealed a mobile mouth.
The pain of his wounds grew more
intense as tho hours wore on. He
could not pray—he had forgotten
how to frame such sacred words—hut
he cried out to Heaven to kill him
then and there, and not take this
slow way of torturing him to madness. The sun wont down and tho
over the
dismal swamp; the dew fell on the
rank flowers whose very breath was
poison, and upon the upturned fnce
lying among the ivy and the deadly
fox-glove.
Oscar Glendenning, lying there dying by inches, looked up at Vho
bright stars overhead and the pale
moon that hung like a goldon cres-
I cent in the azure sky, and shuddered.
The night-wind sighed among the
trees, a nightingale sung on a branch
hard b.v, swamp insects woke to life
amid the darkness and mingled
their shrill piping with the notes of
some belated bird or shrill cry of a
night-owl calling to its mate. Serpents rustled among the tall grass,
and the wild animals that mado their
homes in the marshes chased one
another through the brake and tangled underbrush, stopping short in
wonder upon finding their retreat invaded by so strange a creature lying under the trees.
All through the terrors of that
long night of agony never once did
he closo his eyes; he dared not. He
had only his thoughts and his intense pain for company.
As he lay there, drawing nearer
and nearer the inevitable, each moment that passed thoughts of the
life he had led came to him like accusing spirits. The face of Olive
Kneeland haunted him—that face
more' fatally fair than Helen of
Troy's, and quite ha flluring. How
many men w$uld'ige'^ttd''for ,,love
of her? Duels might be fought for
her, and souls wrecked. He turned
from the thought, gathered a handful of green leaves, and buried his
face in them, shutting his eyes as if
to keep out the vision.
He knew of another who loved her
better than, his life, and.,-,that .other
one was his elder brother, Roger,
who had played him false.
"Why must I be tortured with
thoso remembrances in this terrible
hour!" ho cried out,'with almost a
sob op his lips. , "My brother was
worthy of her, aft** all, while I—ah,
well! of what uso to murmur over
the past now!'.'
He .lay wjth.hirf fuce upturned to
the ritght-sSly until the startf'paled
in the bhjc yault loyertuiad, and the
pint* iln-wi. of t-Ai-ly morn 'broke over
the eastern  tylla. ,        ',.   ;, j .
I low' lohg would this torture last
—hpw long! Already tho • vultures
hud Wented mm" for their prey,
Wheeling about},and yircliijg in the
upper air. "Oh, -if they woult.' but
wait until death claims mo!" moaned Oscar Glendenning, in terror pitiful <J» ','itholii.
'I'he sun ro*3e higher and higher,
and the terrible pain grew more excruciating; he felt his senses reeling.
Was he mad or dreaming. Suddenly through it all he was conscious of
hearing a human voice, a young,
sweet, girlish voice, fresh as a meadow-lark's, sounding nearer and
nearer!
He tried to call out. to attract attention, but the sound died away in
an almost inaudible moan on his
ashen  lips.
lie heard the rustle of skirts nnd
the light patter of steps on the other side of the great older bushes
which shut him from view.
Oh, for the power to cry out, to
move! Another moment and sho
would be beyond the sound of his
weak voice. Had the God whom he
had wronged full many a year no
mercy on him in his pitiful helplessness, in this his hour of greatest
need?
Uo tried to struggle to his feet,
but sunk back with a terrible moan
of pain, Great God! sho was passing
on!   ho. was left to his horrible fate!

SATISFACTORY BARN.
Mam
British Postmaster-General's Problem.
In the annual report for the year ending March 31, the British Postmaster-
General says the question ot reduction
ot postage charged for magazines, periodicals and newspapers sent from the
United Kingdom to Canada is engaging
his attention. "Although there are obvious objections to making ln the case
of Canada arrangements more favorable than can be granted to periodicals,
etc., passing within the United Kingdom itself, or not to other colonies, I
recognize that ln consequence of the
geographical situation of the Dominion
the circumstances are exceptional, and
I am endeavoring to concert some plan
which will meet the end in view without unduly burdening the exchequer."
Following is an estimate of the
weight of letters and postcards other
than articles exchanged by the United
Kingdom with Canada and Newfoundland despatched from the United Kingdom: Letters and postcards weighed
248,000 pounds; circulars, book packets,
newspapers, 1,891,000 pounds. Destined
for the United Kingdom, 18,700 pounds
letters, 616,000 pounds books and papers; number of parcels despatched to
Canada was 172,609; received, 76,492.
The amount of money order transactions between the United Kingdom and
British America were: Issued ln the
United Kingdom, £196,685; Issued in
BriUsh America, £545,584. ,
A Good Name For a Town.
We "effete Easterners" know, of
course, of the spirit of '-hustle" which
animates the "West, and there are few
people down here who have not been
told strange tales of the marvelous
growth of a "town" after Its location.
Warman, on the Canadian Northern,
is an Instance which comes to mind at
the moment. One day It was Just
prairie; next day there were a dozen
stores, numerous tents, and work had
begun on a school'-and a churoh. But
It has remained for one little colony
of Michlganders, who have settled In
Alberta, to give to their town a name
which Is characteristic of Canada's New
West. They have called their town
HURRY, and that they are true to
their name ls shown in the fact that
whereas a year ago the site of the town
was just rolling prairie, lt now has
stores, churches, schools and practically all the comforts of civilization. Hurry ls located twenty-five miles south of
Vegrevllle, Alberta. Add It to the names
ln your Gazetteer, for it will 'be heard
of again.
The Cat Came Back.
Mr. Frank Lacey, of Sprague, Manitoba, found his young chickens being
killed off in a wholesale manner, and
jumping to conclusions, decided that
"it was the cat." And so Pussy was
shipped oft to a friend at Rainy River,
60 miles distant. But even after
Pussy's departure, th* killing of the
chickens continued; a careful watch
was kept; the culprit was found to be
a large hawk; and lt was promptly
killed. Then came the coincidence.
The very morning her innocence had
been proven In walked Miss Pussy,
weary and dusty after her tramp, but
"stlU in the rlnsr."
At the E-penne of tbe Public.
"On whom does the cost ot a big
strike fall?" said J. Ogden Armour, the
great beef packer ln answer to a question of a reporter. "Well, I'll try to
Illustrate with a story.
"A butcher was carrying to a customer's kitchen some' meat that had
been ordered and paid for, when he
was attacked and pinned to th. wall
by a great dog.
"'Hero! Hero I' called * woman's
voice. The, dog slunk away. 'Oh,'
anxiously asked the mistress of the
bouse, 'did Hero bite you?'
" 'No,' answered tbe still trembling
butcher; "I kept him off by giving him
your chops, and you came just in time
Jo save your steak."—Woman'* Horn*

The Simple Facts.
"Children," said the teacher, Instructing the class tn corapgsltlon, "you
should not attempt any flights of fancy,
but simply be .youlwelves and write
what is, ln you. Do not Imitate nny
other person's writings or draw Inspiration from outside sources."
As a result of this advice Tommy
Wise turned out the following composl-,
tion. "We should not attempt any flights
of fanoy,'- but write What ls ln us. In m»
there'is my stummlck, lungs, hart, liver, two apples, one piece of pie, ont
stick of lemon candy, and my dinner."—

Girl* True to First Love.    .
There are seven "virgins' garlands"
Cilll in existence ln Minsterley church,
Salop, tbe first of them bearing the
date 1554 and the last 1751.
They consist of Bilk ribbons and
paper, ball shaped, and are covered
with rosettes, the Inside center of the
cane or wire frame supporting a pair
of paper gloves. They represent a romantic custom of very ancient origin
aud are sacred to the memory of girls
who while betrothed in their youtb
lost their Intended husbands by death,
yet remained true to their first loves.
Each maiden designed ber own garland, and at her death this simple emblem was borne before her by the village lasses, the wnite gloves being afterward added. After the obsequies
•these garlands were suspended ln the
village church on a.jod bearing at its

A Forest ot Giants.
It Is almost Impossible for one wbo
bas seen only the eastern or Rocky
mountain forests to imagine the woods
of the Pacific coast. Pictures <4 the
big trees are as common ns postage
stamps, but the most wonderful thing
about the big trees Is that they are
scarcely bigger than the rest of the forest. The Pacific coast bears only a
tenth of our woodland, but nearly half
of our timber. An average acre in the
Rocky mountain forest yields one to
two thousand board feet of lumber; In
the southern fdrest, three to four thousand; ln the northern forest, four to
six thousand. An average acre on the
Pacific coast yields fifteen to twenty
thousand. Telescope the southern snd
Rocky mountain forests, toss tbe northern on top of them and stuff the central into the chinks, and, acre for acre,
the Pacific forest will outweigh them
all.
Stains  on  Books.
Ink stains may be removed from a
book by applying with a camel's hair
pencil a small quantity of oxalic acid
diluted with water and then using blotting paper. Two applications will remove all traces of the Ink. To remove
grease spots lay powdered pipeclay
each side of the spot and press with
an Iron as hot as the paper will bear
without scorching. Sometimes grease
spots may be removed from paper or
cloth by laying a piece of blotting paper on them and then pressing the blotting paper w^h a hot Iron. The heat
melts the grehse,. and the blotting paper absorbs It.

Over the doer where I go to the slie

They hold oue ton each. I put a chut*
at the bottom, pull a slide, and I can

my stock their silage, as shown in th*

GROWING CHESTNUTS.
Nut Culture and Timber  Culture  Differ—Some Risks.
Growing chestnuts for the nuts ls aa
entirely different proposition from
growing chestnuts for timber. To bear
nuts the tree3 must be exposed to th*
air and sun on all sides. This requires
low heading and broad spreading
branches as nearly the shape of an apple tree as possible. To grow timber
we do "not want side branches, but try
to crowd the trees and have each one
vie with Its neighbor ln height. Th*
extreme top of these dense forest tree*
are the only parts which bear nuts.
We have had experience with most
all the vicissitudes to which th* chestnut business ls subject, such as fire,
frost, hail, wind, drought, Insect pests,
faulty preparation for market and disappointing commission merchants. Tb*
writer does not want to discourage any
one from engaging In chestnut culture,
hut fourteen years' treasurershlp of a
chestnut company, from which no dividends have as yet been paid, has prevented him from extending his holdings ln chestnut culture stock until w*
get a better understanding of the business ln all lt* details. We have Pandora's only blessing left to us, "W*
hope for better things."—J. J. Albert-

Collar and Saddle Gall*.
Gall* on horses are due to several
eauses, hut frequently to saddle* and
harness that press unevenly on th*
body, says American Cultivator., Th*
collar should fit the horse perfectly,
and it cannot be too good. A loos*
girth to a saddle may allow lt to shift.
When a gall ls noticed there I* some*
thing wrong with the saddle or harness, and no remedy will be availaibl*
until the cause of the gall. Is removed.
An examination of the harness should
be made whenever the _o_*»e is brought
up from work at night, and lt should
be kept ln good condition or the hors*

The White Man Has Broken Faith by

In thes. words Mr. Gibson, City
Comptroller of Vancouver, wished bon
voyage to the two Indian chiefs and
their Interpreter who are now on their
way to London, England, their object
being to see King Edward and "lay at
the foot of the throne" their grievances
against the white men, "who have taken
away their lands and Interfered with
the Ashing and hunting right* which
tbelr fathers enjoyed." A free translation of Mr. Gibson's Chinook address
U:
"Mayor Buscombe's heart ls grieved
because he oould not be at the station
to say good-bye to his Slwash friends.
He hoped King Edward would grant
their wishes. He wished them a pleasant Journey and a safe return ln tb* big

"I will speak to him of what his Indian
subjects want. I will tell you when I
come back what he says. I will shake
his hand ln loyalty for you. He Is the
King of the Indians ind the whites.

■was at 'the station to play Chief J*Se
upon his way to the far city across the
great ocean and the vast sea. A strange
sight was presented at the station. Chief
Joe was ln kingly coBtume. A grext
fur hat of coonskin, nearly a foot high
with the tall dangling down his back
was as unnoticed by him as though lt
had been a panama, yet the day was
the hottest thus far this summer. A
woven reed blanket fell below his knees
and almost put out of sight the ready-
made white man's trousers.
The  Whites Indicted.
"The whites are crowding u» out,
they are taking away our heritage."
That ls the burden of the address which
the chiefs will present to the King.
Missionaries have put the document ln
formal style so that lt starts out thus:
"May lt please your Majesty. Perhaps
We are among the most remote of your
Majesty's subjects, yet we give place
to none ln our loyalty and devotion to
your Majesty's person and to the British Crown. Our home ls beyond the
great Atlantic Ocean, beyond the great
Inland seas of Canada, beyond the vast
wheat-growing prairies of Manitoba,,
beyond the majestic Rocky Mountains,
away on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.
We bring greeting* to your Majesty
from thousands of true and loyal hearts,
which beat in unison beneath the red
skins of our tribesmen, and it is because of our love to your Majesty, coupled with the desire to live tn harmony
with the white people who are filling
up our country, that we appeal to your
Majesty In person."
No Treaty Indians In B, C.
The address proceeds to point out that
there are no treaty Indians in British
Columbia, such as there are In other
provinces of Canada. Hero the Indian
title has never been extinguished.
"Many years ago,' Mt proceeds, "Sir
James Douglas came to our country and
told us he had been sent by her Majesty, the late Queen Victoria,—whom
we learned to love like a mother, and
whom we continue to mourn. Sir James
told us that large numbers of white
people would come to our country and,
ln order to prevent trouble, he designated large tracts of land for our use
and told us that If any white people
encroached on those lands he would
remove them, which he did, and that
we should receive remuneration for
other lands settled upon by the white
people, but when we asked for anything
we were refused. But when Sir James
was no longer Governor whites settled
upon our lands and titles were Issued
to them by tha British Columbia Government."
Have Na Pull.
The Indians naively add that, being
without votes, they can get no redress,
so they trust his Majesty's ear will be
ooen to their cry. Thev point out
tno.t at one time the whites were glad
to employ them, but now Chinese and
Japanese take their places in the labor
market
"We know how to work as well as
the white man," they say, "we have our
families to keep as well as the white
man, then why should we not have the
aame privileges as the white man?"
This Is no doubt a reference to the
lack of the franchise and perhaps to
the fact that It ls Illegal for Indians
to drink Intoxicating liquors. The Indians ask the King to "send a good man,
or some good men to British Columbia,
Who will see and hear and take back
a report to your Majesty. We leave
ourselves In yoar Majesty's hands and
trust we may be Bible to return to our
****)**  with   coed   news."
She  Ri'baked Gladstone.
Laura Haln Frlswell, In her book,
tells this amusing anecdote of William
H, Gladstone. Miss Frlswell had been
to the wedding of Sir Edwnrd and
Lady Brmyntrude Malet and wns trying bard to get out of tbe crush. "I
beard a voice saying: 'It's 4 o'clock!
It's 4 o'clock! We shall be late tor tbe
bouse, Harcourt. We must get out.'
The speaker was just at tbe back of
me and pushing dreadfully; but I,
grasping my friend's arm, stood back;
then I turned my head and saw Gladstone and Sir William Harcourt.
" 'What do you mean by this ungen-
tlemauly behavior?' I asked Indignant.
ly. 'We are late for the house, madam,'
returned the 'Grand Old Man.' 'And ts
tbat any reason why we should be killed by tboso horses? If you were —.cu.
you would keep the crowd back.'
" 'She's light there,' whispered Harcourt. 'We must keep the crowd back.
I beg your pardon, mndnm.' Gladstone
lookod very cross, but did as be was
requested and muttered som'.llilng
which I took for an apology. They
kept back tb* crowd."
oKlflSH ARMY TUNES.
Some Favorites For Many Year* With
Regiments.
British regiments are very Jealous of
certain tunes which tradition and association have connected with them
"Dumbarton's Drums" has been the
quickstep march of the Royal Scots
for over two hundred years. The West
Yorkshire Regiment claims "Ca Ira" as
Its march; the 1st Battalion Duke of
Cornwall's Light Infantry, "One and
All"; the Cheshire Regiment, "Wha
Wadna Fight for Charlie?" ln honor ot
Sir Charles Napier, who once commanded them; the Rifle Brigade, "I'm
Ninety-flve"; th* -Scots Greys, "The
Garb of Old Gaul"; the 10th Hussars,
"God Bless the Prince of Wales" and
"Men of Harlech','; the 6th Lancers,
"Let Erin Remember'* and "The Harp
That Once Thro' Tara's Halls"; the 2nd
Battalion Seaforth Highlanders, "My
Pretty Brown Lass" and "The Relief of
Lucknow"; and the 12th Lancers and
21st Hussars, "Cobourg." The Scotch,
Welsh and Irish regiments of the British army are all partial to tunes of national extraction; and English regiments formed originally ln counties the
names of which they still bear have
melodies applicable to the locality, and
clng to them tenaciously.

TEETHING TIME.
Every mother dreads that period in
lier baby's lif© known as teething
time. The little gums aro swollen,
inflamed and tender; the child suffers
greatly, and is so cross and irritable
that the whole household is on edge.
All this is changed in homes where
Haby's Own Tablets are used. This
medicine allays the inflammation,
softeiiB the swollen, tender gums,
brings the teeth through painlessly.
In proof Mrs. W. C. McCay, Denbigh,
Out., says: "I have found Baby's
Own Tablets a splendid medicine at
teething time. My baby was very
sick at that time, was cr<_ss, restless,
and had no appetite. After giving her
the Tablets there was a marked improvement, and in the course of a few
days, she was not like the same child.
The Tablets are just the medicine to
help little ones over the trying teething time." You can get Baby's Own

Would Be a Muddle.
There would have to be some reeoj.
nlzed authority in charge of the Issu*
of the stamp. There ls the International
Bureau of he Postal Union at Berne,
Switzerland, which could supply tha
■tamps to all countries In the union, but
the difficulty encountered at Rome wa*
that each country would still be free to
Issue universal stamps within It* own
borders, but without regard to their
destination. This would imean that
each country would have to keep
track of all the postage on letters sent
from a foreign country. It would ba
a big Increase in the work of the post-
offices, and ln the case of Canada would
necessitate the employment of another
batch of clerk* In the Postoffice Department at Ottawa. The Congress of
Rome thought that It wouldn't do.
United State* Got Some.
Ureat Britain, and Incidentally Canada, came away from the congress
with no mean trophies, but there were
other victors. The United States, after some hard work, secured one or two
Important privileges. They obtained the
right to use the face of the picture postcard—half of lt—for correspondence.
Italy, Switzerland, Germany and some
other countries have been doing this for
a considerable time, but lt has been
forbidden ln the United States. Uncle
Sam went to the congress determined
to get the concession, and after hard
pulling' did succeed in getting it.
Cut Down Transit Rate.
Much of the .time of the congress
was occupied in reducing what ls
known as tha transit rate. This ls
the fixed rate per kilogral charged by
an intermediate country on malls carried from one outside country to another. For example, when letters sent
from "A" have to pass through "B" to
get to "C," there Is a transit rate charged by "B."
Ths congress- at Rome cut this transit rate ln half.
This was one of the big battles of the
convention. Heavy transit charges have
to be paid on the greater part of tue
mall originating ln Europe for the American continent. The proposal was
thus an Important one. England and
Germany did not oppose lt, but every
other European country did. They
fought lt li committee and on the floor
of the congress, losing ln the end by
only two vo&es..
Australian* Not Sore.
Ths next Postal Congress will be held
In Madrid. The Spanish capital had
extended an invitation. So had Melbourne, Australia. The convention was
Inclined toward Madrid, but the Australian Postmaster-General, Hon. Mr.
Chapman, and his fellow-delegates put
up a vory strong canvas ln favor of
Melbourne. They finally forced the
question to a vote and lost, but they
did not, as some reports have said,
take the verdict badly. They received
the vote ln good spirit, and the motion
to make the Madrid movement unanimous came from them.

Tho new school house on Westminster
avenue, near the Bodwell road, ia rapidly neuring completion, and when finished will be a credit to that section of

from Sixteenth avenue to the new
sohool. Tho building is a large square
buildiug consisting of two rooms downstairs aud two up-stairs besides balls
and coat rooms. The grouuds contain
over two acres of laud well graded.
The buildiug iB constructed so that
additions can be bnilt without spoiling
tho symmetrical harmony of tbe structure. The two rooms ou the first floor
will be finished aud occupied aud tbe
top floor wheu required. The Westminster aveuue district is growing rapidly,
aud it will not be long - before this big
school house will be filled with children
and more room be needed. It is wonderful the way the people are settling
in Ward IV. of South Vancouver.

Toques aud tnrbans and well-fitting
small hats that took us so loug to get
uso to aro all in high favor for morniug
wear. Certain adaptations of the sailor
when trimmed with the taatau plaids
nro quite popular with walking suits.
Mushrooii shapes are iu bnt it is feared that they ara short livod, although
the. drooping brim they introduced has
fouud its woa* to many another radically different creation. >
Instead of tbe triinmiug at the back
of the hat forcing it up to au absurd
angle, there is very littlo tilt permitted
nt all, the trimming which still remains
well massed at the back nudor the brim,
beiug brought down over tbe hair iu a
way which is becoming to the average
womau. i
The combination' felt trimmed with
velvet or velvet trimmed with felt, is
very often seen in the hat displays.
Often tho two materials match exactly.
Plumes ni'3 as good as ever thoy were.
Buckles share iu the trimming honors
of every sort of bat, from the smartest
of little hats to the big hats.
Tho wonderful dahlia and wine
shades, which have come back iuto
favor iu dreeB stuffs are the prettiest
wheu trimmed with plumes and roses
perhaps kept to a single tone or to a
succession Of shades that deepens from
the coolest imaginable shade to rich,
warm tones.
Fruits trim some of the prettiest hats,
one bunch matching the felt another
the velvet, aud so on.
It is said that the prophets of Paris
predict a fad of tho all black hat. They
say that this fashion will extend to the
everyday toqne as well as to the sweeping picture hat.
Black lace and maline hats aro to be
iu the fabric doubled and sewed on
smoothly to be iu the least degree
transparent. Those hats nre usually
trimmed with os|rich feathers.
For the lncc cheapeans a heavy black
lace is usod, aiid this is stretched ou
'ightly, the bptu beiug bound with
blnck velvet. The French faucy is to
pile black feathers and sweopiug aig
rottcs ou thom, although wiugs are
used.
Every year the bandeau is different
from the year before. This year it is
an iuch uml a half strip which reaches
half way around the hat, whero it
grndnates into slight depth,
Colored handkerchiefs are shown in
larger assortment thun ever this season,

PIRATE'S BURIED LOOT
ENGLISH    EXPEDITION   MAKES   A
FRUITLESS SEARCH POP IT.
Secret of Its Whereabouts Disclosed by
Dying Man to No Purpose—Account
of tho Expedition — The Pirates'
Flight—Treasure Syndipaie Lands
June 30 on Island But Did Not Find
Expected Treasure.
The yacht Alkelda, commanded by
fcer owner, Capt. Gage, has Just returned to Gibraltar from a treasure hunt
tn the Island of Alboran, In the Mediterranean, opposite Mclilla. The search
arose from a staitement made to T. C.
Mc— tichael, of Brighton, by an old army
man, who had a secret confided to him
when he was a boy to the effect that
treasure worth $5,000,000 was burled by
.urates on the island in 1832. Nothing,
ttowever, waa found.
Capt Gage and Mr. McMlchael were
-accompanied by Col. Lewis, Capt. English, R. N.; Capt. Chaplain, H. A.; the
Hon. Alister Campbell and Messrs. J. E.
Browne and E. S. Hopkinson.
Account of the Expedition.
The following account of the expedition ls supplied by a reporter who ac-
eompanled lt:
"On June 10 the schooner Alkelda, R.
T. S., 140 tons, owned by Capt. Gage,
■ailed from Plymouth for Gibraltar.
"We had a picked crew of six Cornish
fishermen and a young mate from the
mercantile marine, and we were commanded by Capt. Long, who had been
many years in the service of Capt. Gage.
A cook, two stewards and a forecastle
hand completed the ship's company, and
the fortunate guests who had been invited for the cruise were Col. D. T.
*_ewls, Capt. English and Capt. A.
Campbell.
"The object of the expedition was a
treasure hunt, and the information we
Upended on was,.briefly, this:
"A few years ago a friend who owned house property in Yorkshire had to
jpress one of his tenants for rent.
"This tenant, a retired army captain who was getting on ln years, told
tha proprietor that ln his soldiering
days he had a private named Robinson
aa servan-t, and that ln return for some
kindness Robinson had told hlin that
when quite a lad he had gone to sea and
aserved as cabin boy in a merchant ship
called the Young Constitution. He soon
found out that the ship was a pirate,
ajid was carrying on Hs nefarious business off the coast of Jamaica,
The Pirates' Flight.
"In 1882,- he said, British men-of-war
were on the lookout for the Young
Constitution, and being laden with
Jewels and gold to the value of fully a
million pounds, the captain decided to
leave the West Indies and made a
course for the Mediterranean.
They were chased by two British
frigates, but, boing favored with fair
winds and fortunate fogs, they passed
•aiely through the Straits of Gibraltar.
"Here the pirate captain lost his
fcearings. He had no charts of the Mediterranean, and no knowledge of the
coast. Before long they hove ln sight
•f a email island, which they found to
be uninhabited and waterless.
■"They packed their treasure in two
Creat copper boilers and landed them
-ait the southeastern corner of the Island.
It took ten men to get the treasure on
-chore, and they burled It close to the
.landing place eight or nine feet deep,
•nd then sailed away to the nearest
t>ort to get water, provisions and charts.
"Later on," said Robinson, "they
cam. in with two unarmed merchant
vessels, which they could not resist robbing and scuttling.
"They wore caught redhanded, and
every one except Robinson was hanged
*t the yardarm. Robinson was now the
•niy living person who knew of the
treasure, and he kept the secret until
_e confided ln his master.
'The captain was forgiven his debt ln
exchange for the secret of the burled
•million.
Treasure Syndicate.
"The proprietor was an old man, and
not ln robust health, so he waited to
realize the fortune that lay hidden ln
the Island of Alboran, 140 miles from
Gibraltar, until his son was grown up.
"Aftar the usual negotiations with a
_lty firm a small syndicate was formed
and an expedition planned. Capt. Gage
fitted up his yacht and undertook to
convey the syndicate from Gibraltar to
Alboran and back and to assist in the
Beardl.
"We sailed from Plymouth on June
10, and with fair winds and two days
of calm wo arrived at Gibraltar on the
19th. The syndicate, was not due until
the 26th, and so we made expeditions
to Algeclras and Cadiz.
"It was thought advisable to engagj
an interpreter to go with us to Alboran, as there ls a lighthouse on tbe Island, and It would be necessary to explain to the keeper what we were landing on his island for. It was thought
better to say we were prospecting for
-11.
"When the syndicate arrived we set
sail without delay, but tho wind faded
away, and we were becalmed In a very
choppy sea. The current set us to the
southward, and In a day or two we
wero In. sight of the Riff coast. Luckily we were well armed and the Riff
pirates did not attack us.
"With the help cf the motor launch
we towed tlie yacht for some hours, and
then the wind came, and at 5 a, m. on
June 30 we dropped anchor In eight
fathoms of water on the southeastern
aide of the treasure Island.
Welcomed  by  Natives.
"Every ono hurried on deck when the
anchor chain was heard rushing tlirough
Wie hawse pipes, and as we looked
through our glasses we made the land
ing piace lust as described In Robinson's account.
"But now the Island was no longer
uninhabited. There was a lighthouse
and a large barrack-like building round
Its base, and we saw seven men and
several boys and women.
"Two boats put off. The men, .who
were of very superior class, offered us j
some rock cod for sale, while we otter-!
ed them Spanish wine, and stuffed the!
boys with biscuits, bread and butter,!
and fruit. After breakfast we all landed In the cutter.
"Two of the most diplomatic, accompanied by the interpreter, went up to
the  lighthouse, and  gave a    plausible
reason for our arrival with picks ana
shovels and Iron bars, while the rest of
the party began to prospect for the
place where the treasure was hidden.
"We soon found a second landing
place which was more accurately at
the southeastern part of the Islanu, but
not at the oorner. Here was a natural
jetty of flat rock, with almost a couplo
of fathoms of water, and a steep path
up the face of the cliff. An old wire
rope was suspended from the top.
"The general Idea was that this was
the natural landing that had existed
when the Island was uninhabited, and
that the one which we had used was
made when the lighthouse was built.
"However, we tried at every conceivable nlace to find soil or sand deoo
enougn to bury treasure Inland nownere
could we find a spot. The soil was not
more than three feet thick, and then
we came on solid rock. For three days
we dug a cut through sand heaps, and
probed with pointed iron rods, but all
to no purpose, and on July 2 a gale
sprang up, and we had to sail away, but
not before every member of the expedition was satisfied that there was no
treasure In Alboran."
ENGLAND'S LOST LAND.
WHY WE DO SOME THINGS.
Certainly Not Because We Look Prletty
When We Do Them. |
A man does not take off bis hat to a
lady because he looks nicer without it.
The  Instance  of bald   men  would  be
alone sufficient  to upset  such an ex-1
planatlon.
He does lt because you must posi-'
tlvely do something when you meet a
lady or your whole civilization goes to
pieces, and taking off your hat is easier
than taking off your necktie or lying
face downward on the pavement. I
The primary point is that yoi> must
do something, not that you must do
something beautiful. And as long as
cultivated people cannot grasp this
fact they will find their efforts quite
futile in dealing with what they often
consider the dullness of the middle
classes or the vulgarity and morbidity
of the poor.
In so far as the bourgeois thinks It
more Important to wear a Sunday hat
than a becoming hat he ls perfectly
right. It Is more Important; the religion of the tribe Is more Important than
the pretty appearance of Mr. Jones.
In so far as the charwoman thinks
lt more Important that her husband
should have a "proper" funeral than a.
pretty funeral she Is perfectly right.
It ls more Important Decorum Is as
permanent a human sentiment as art
and a much more pressing one. Any
healthy savage would understand the
charwoman's sentiments exactly and
perhaps alarm her with demonstrations
of barbaric approval.
He would also understand perfectly
the sentiment of a Sunday hat. I believe ln savages myself. I think that
in a great many matters they represent the enduring common sense and
moral minimum ot humanity. There is
nothing which I so sincerely respect in
savages as their widespread and generally ascertained disposition to wear
top hats.—London Illustrated News.
-he >I—tlnir Coasts Getting to Be b
Serious Question.
Dr. Andrew Wilson writes: "Year by
year the subject of the lost land of
Britain grows iu importance. If, as the
geologists tell us. we lose annually a
mass of land equal to Gibraltar, lt may
be an easy mntter to calculate the period lt will take well nigh to annihilate certain areas of our country.
We are told that on our east coast
alone there ls swept away every year
a land mass equal to the island of
Helgoland. Tho rate at wilch erosion
takes place depends on the nature of
the materials on which tbe waves
wreak their force and vengeance. When
the materials consist of soft clay, gravel and chalk the rate of sea inroad la
very rapid. Where we find hard rocks
the rate of wear aud tear ls appreciably lessened. The sea, moreover, In
dealing with even hard rocks has a
very distinct plan of Invasion. It will
undermine a cliff, for example. It
will use the detached bowlders as a
kind of marine artillery, the waves
seizing them and hurling them against
tbe rocks. The undermined cliff topples over and falls, and the waves
play around the detached mass until lt
worn away. Sometimes tbe attack assumes a different guise. Tbe wares
beat against a cliff and tunnel lt
through, leaving thus a natural archway such as the locality around Torquay Illustrates very aptly. Then ln
time the top of the arch falls lu, and
the outer side appears as tbe lone sea
stack or pillar. This ln due season ls
also worn down by degrees until It appears as the tangle covered rock over
which the waves are ever breaking.
"To be convinced of the immense
loss of land for which tbe sea is responsible one has only to consult geological works and ordnance survey records. Take the case of Yorkshire, for
example. Professor Phillips said that
tbe rate at which the cliffs recede from
Bridlington to Spurn, a distance of
thirty-six miles, equals on an average
two yards and a quarter yearly. Estimated for thirty-six miles of coast,
the total amount of loss is about thirty
acres. Further calculated, the loss
since the Norman conquest amounts to
one mile ln breadth and more than two
miles since York, the old Eboracum,
was occupied by tbe Romans.
"In old Yorkshire maps there are
sites of towns marked as Auburn,
Hartburn and Hyde. Today these sites
are represented by sand banks. Near
Hornsea there was a street called
Hornsea Beck, which has loug ago
been swallowed up. Ravenspur, or
Ravensburgh, a rival as a port to Hull,
was well known In 1832, for Edward
Balllol and the English barons sailed
from It to Invade Scotland. In 1309
Henry IV. landed here to adjust matters with Richard II. Now not a trace
of Ravenspur remains."
HEALTH THE PRIZE

Health is Restored by
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
You want to be strong and healthy.
, Everbody dojs.    Women  as    well    as
! men'
There was a time when women prided themeelves on looking pale and
delicate. '
1    That day has passed.
To-day robust health is the ideal.
A well-rounded form, firm flesh and
muscles, strength and elasticity of
1 movement and a healthful glow to the
complexion—these are what all are
i striving for, and many are attaining
1 their object by the use of Dr. Chase's
. Nerve Food.
When the food which is taken into
j the body  fails to supply tho required
amount of rich,  life-sustaining    blood
external assistance must    be    sought
until the system is  fully restored.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food supplies
the very material whicll goos directly
to the formation of blood, pure,
health-giving blood.
Mrs. W. R. Sutherland, St. Andrews,   Man.,     writes—"In    February,
1903 I was stricken with paralysis,
fell helplessly to the floor and had to
be carried to bed. The doctor "'.pronounced it a bad case as I had r.o
power in my tongue and left leg. I
remained in that ■ condition for six
months without obtaining benefit
from the' doctor's prescriptions or
other medicines.
"My husband advised me to try
Dr. Chase's Norve Food and by the
use of this treatment all symptoms of
the disoase disappeared. I can now
talk plainly, my leg is all right and
I can dp my housework. How grateful I am to be cured by so wonderful
a remedy,"
AVeakness, irregularities, headaches,
dizzy spells, feelings of fatigue, discouragement and despondency soon
disappear before the splendid restorative influence of this great medicine,
and for this reason Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food has become so popular; CO cents

Trout Kept In Tank For Guests.
Another step has been taken ln that
art of supreme simplicity which Is fast
becoming the distinctive feature of the
London school of epicures.
The Carlton Hotel ls bringing live
trout from Barrasford-on-Tyne. The
tanks ln which they are carried are
packed In Ice, and the water ls changed
soveral times on the way, so that the
fish arrive in London ln prime condl- ,
tion. They are at once transferred to
a great tank fed by water running over i
mlniatu."e icebergs. This tank ls covered with wire netting to keep the vigorous fish from leaping out. I
"Presently a glass tank will be fixed
ln an annex to the palm garden beyond
the restaurant, and those who are so
pleased may go and see the actual fish
caught ten minutes beforo they aro
served at. table. i
Of course, this custom ls a fairly
common one on the Continent, moro
especially at little Inns among tho
mountains, but until M. Jacques took
It >ln hand it has never been a success
ln London. j
Last year a visitor to Vevey spent,
one of the most exciting quarters of an
hour of his life In trying to land a six
pound carp for his lunch from the pri -1
vate fishpond of a llttle Inn in Vevey. |
It was  not until  assistance had been
given that  the fish was^rflumphanitly
caught.
Every year at the great London restaurants the demand for plain fare increases. Nothing could be more perfectly simple than "truite aubleu"—trout

Probably In no other part of the
United States, except In East Liverpool, O., ls there a baseball diamond
from which It ls possible to bat a ball
Into any one of three states. Such a
condition actually exists at the
grounds which have been leased for
tbe Klondike club there. The diumond
Is laid out on a lot which ls known as
"State Line corner." If a batsman
makes a hit over third base the ball
will be sent Into West Virginia. Should
a foul tip result tbe catcher would
have to chase tbe ball Into Pennsylvania. If a straight drive or a bunt Is
made the ball will bowl Into tbe state
of Ohio. Taking advantage of this
freak of nature, the Klondike club Is

Did you ever stop to consider the fact
that the iuhabltauts of this earth have

and to Inquire the rensons why such
should be the case? The explanation Is
this: Tbe moon makes one revolution
on her axis In the same period of time
which she consumes ln revolving once
around the earth. Thus the same geographical regions of the moon are always toward us. One explanation usually calls for another. Therefore It may
not be out of place to remark tbat the

STEAMSHIP
ENGAGEMENTS j
By C. B. LEWIS
Copurlaht, 1»06, bu M. M. Cunningham
It may have been that In the hurry
and confusion of getting away from
London the purser of tbe steamship
Bramble got things mixed up. He
knew that he had among the passengers no less than three fond American
mammas who had been trailing over
Europe with marriageable daughters
and were coming home with disappointed looks, and he hoped to give one
of tbem a last chance.
However It happened, lt was known
among tbe passengers even before the
Bramble left her dock 'that a great
man was on board. It was Mr. Julius
Smlthers of the Chicago beef trust,
and bis fortune was variously estimated at from ten to fifty million dollars.
There were men who at flrst denied
that Smlthers was a member of the
trust Tbey could name over every
packer who had ever been mentioned
In the papers, aud the name of Smlthers didn't figure iu the list. Tbey were
about to denounce him as an Impostor
when a red headed man suggested that
Smlthers might have come Into tbe
trust on a merger of some sort. There
were mergers merging all tbe time,
and what lf the beef trust and the
tombstone trust had consolidated their
Interests?
The thing was as good as settled in
an hour. Mr. Smlthers was a man of
forty. He was rather rotund and bald
headed. He bad just the faintest Inclination to be flashy. Mr. Smlthers was
very democratic for a man worth untold millions. He made acquaintances
rapidly, and the steamer had uot made
a hundred miles to tbe westward when
be started a game of poker in the
smoking room and had for companions
a drummer, a cattleman, a ward politician and the Inventor of the sausage
stuffing machine. He wus given a seat
at the captain's ta.hle. It was afterward said that this wus a mlstuke and
"I WILI. 8KB TOU AGAIN.   IN TACT, I WAKT
TO SB- IOU AGAIN."
that he bad taken the place assigned to
• bishop. If be hadn't been worth millions upon millions his table manners
would have been open to criticism.
There was much to overlook In Mr.
Julius Smithers or there would have
been uuder any other circumstances.
He was about the only one who didn't
know lt, and he was huppy.
Within forty-eight hours those mammas were laying wires. If they bad
failed to pick up a lord, a duke or
count abroad it wasn't such a bad
thing to fall back on one of the "its" of
the beef trust. Mr. Smlthers could not
only restore the family beefsteaks to
(he old time prices, but be had millions
to Spend in castles, yachts and diamonds. These mammas had male
friends aboard, who were instructed to
obtain Information about Smlthers. He
met them halfway and more.
"Say, you take my "word for It, lFs
going to be the bigge"t i .-cess of anything for the last teu years," was his
sanguine reply. "You'll bear all about
It within a month after we land. Money In lt? Well, I guess yes. I expect to
make bonfires of fifty-dollar bills."
He was talking about the merger, of
course. His replies were reported to
the waiting mammas, and they were
Introduced. The Bald Introductions
came about ln a careless way, as if by
mere accident.
The mammas found him hearty and
Jovial In his speech. He didn't always.
follow the rules of grammar, nnd he
sometimes caught himself just ln time
to bite off a cuss word, but a man may
be forgiven much If he can draw his.
check for several millions,
It was decided in all three cases tbat
Mr. Smithers would do as a member of
Ibe family. When he became a son-in-
law they could polish blm up a bit and
gradually reduce tbe size of his two
watch chains and his diamond pin.
Then the daughters were Introduced.
This was also carelessly accomplished
—-that Is, while Mr. Smithers was making intervals between his poker gapifs*,'.
In order to get a breath of ocean air he''
would suddenly find some one ln bis
path and be compelled to pause and be
Introduced. He wasn't a man with a
grain of suspicion in his composition,
and be was the soul of good nature.
He gave up his poker to sit down and
make himself agreeable to Miss Blank.
"You may have beard of tbe beef
trust?" was his way of starting off the
conversation. "It's going to be tbe
biggest thing the United States ever
heard of.' My, but that was a great
thought of mine, and I can't help but
feel rather swelled np over It! No
more bust-ups; no more walking the
railroad tracks for Julls. Smlthers,
Esq."
The girls elevated their eyebrows In
surprise and perplexity. They had never beard any merger talk before, and
It was as Greek to them. They reported to their respective mammas tbat
Mr. Smithers didn't get Into college
tbe day be called, tbat bis ways were
rather laminar, tbat be evidently
hadn't attended over a thousand high
teas and grand receptions and that It
would take a carload of sandpaper to
rub him down, but he had a good heart
ss a foundation to build on. If his conversation wasn't exactly up to the
notch the wlndup was Intended to
draw applause. He always finished by
saying:
"I shall now have to ask you to excuse me, but I will see you again. In
fact, I want to see you again. I tblnk
I can figure lt out before we arrive at
Sandy Hook to offer you the best thing
of the season, but keep that to yourself."
"Mamma, what did he mean by
that?" asked the respective daughters
of their respective mothers.
"Why, child, how silly you are!" was
the reply. "What could he mean but
one thing?"
"But we have known him such a little while."
"You haven't got to know a millionaire over a day or two. They are different from other men. They have the
cash."
There were men aboard looking to
get into a good thing on the ground
floor. They knew that tho beef trust
was a good thing. They threw out
hints to Mr. Smlthers, but he laughed
and shook bis bead and replied:
"Not.yet, my boy.   I've got the dough
to start  lt off,  and  I  waut al)  the
plunks there are lu It.   See me next
; season." . . ;
!    "Will beef go up?"
i    "Tbuyder,■' no!   We expect to knock
the price'doWn to 15 cents n pound.".
"Then how will you make your millions out of it?" "*'*.'.
Mr. Smithers didn't make any _irect
answer. He simply winked a long,
quivering wink witb his left eye and
conveyed the Impression that there
was a coon up the tree. The merger
man enjoyed the sunshine of flattery
and envy aud toadyism for five or six
days.
Then Sandy Hook was sighted one
morning, and be announced to the
three scheming mammas that he wanted to hold converse with their three
daughters. It was to be private converse. There was agitation. There was
perturbation. There were consultations. Mr. Smlthers selected a corner
of tbe music room, and to that spot the
victims were led in turn. The conversation was about the same ln each instance.
"My dear girl," began Mr, Smlthers,
with paternal blandness, "I told you I
bad a good thing on hand aud would
try to arrange to make you an offer. I
am about to do bo. You have never bad
any experience on tbe stage, but you
are a mighty good looker."
"Sir!" demanded tbe maiden ns she
retreated a step.
"Ob, I shan't ask you to dress unbecomingly. It's just a plain, straight
play called 'The Beef Trust' end showing bow tbat corporation by raising the

a hitch. Papers are bound to give it

What do you say?"
None of the three said anything—not
"to Mr, Smithers. Ten minutes after
the last Interview a murmur swept
over tbe great steamer. That was followed by a growl. After the growl
came cries of "Kill html Throw him
overboard!" There was a rush of feet
along the decks, but Mr. Smlthers was
pulled Into the purser's room and saved
from total wreckage, and when the
steamer reached her dock tbe captain
lent him a pair of false red whiskers to
disguise himself and escape the mob. .<
THE SUNDIAL.
THE SILO IS "IT.'
It Should Be  Marked For Ihe Latitude In Which It Stands.
In an old shop ln lower New York a
man keeps up his trade of dial making.
i The dials, square, octagonal or circular, are hand chased. They do not receive a high polish, and any accidental effect of weather stain or other
"tone of time" is carefully preserved
If not skillfully added. These dials,
fitted with the gnomon, or stylus, are
then artfully slipped iuto the show
windows of uptown curiosity shops
among a selected debris of Sheffield
plate, prism candlesticks, Inlaid tea
caddies and old blue plates.
A visitor to onu of these shops asked:
"How old Is i__at brass dial over there?
It's all hand work, Isn't It?"
"It's all hand work," said the proprietor, whom we will call Truthful James.
"I can testify to that, for I know the
man whose bands made it. It's about
a month old, lf you want to know.
You're like lots of other people—you
want an old Scotch or English dial.
Don't you know lt would be useless, If
you found It, for practical purposes?
Excuse me, but haven't you ever studied geography and beard of latitude?
A dial ought to be marked out scientifically for the exact latitude in which
It ls to be set up. So unless you strike
the same parallel In the states that the
dial left in England it will tell lies
from morning till night. You'd be surprised hew many people pick up a dial
that strikes their fancy which perhaps
stood In the garden of an old Virginia
estate, Intending to hurry lt off to the
big grounds of some place In Minnesota; or they'll snatch at some quaint
dial from New England, with the Idea
of rigging lt up ln Texas.
"More people would make the same
blunder, except that many haven't j
caught on to dials. Too bad. Nothing
is prettier than a simple dial at the
crosswnys of garden paths, or by a
fountain or on a terrace or at the entrance of a pergola or near a rustic
seat or arbor. You don't have to hire
a head gardener and two assistants to
keep a sundial. Marble platforms and
pedestals are very grand, but unless
you're running a big Italian garden
with clipped hedges snd yews and
statues something simple ls what you
want. The dial will keep Just as good
..time, once It's engraved right, if it's
mounted on a tree stump, with Ivy
planted round it, or on a bowlder, or on
the coping of an old disused well, or on
a column of cobbles mortared together, '
or on top of the old hitching post that
the family doesn't use In these automobile days, but doesn't want to root
up and throw away.
"You'd be surprised at the Ingenuity
of some people," said Truthful James,
who himself seemed of ingenious bent.
"I mean people who haven't much
money to spend and are fond of their
own old stuff for association's sake.
They're the'ones who get effects with
a piece'<of jiink, a lump of sentimeut
nnd n pocket of small change that can't
be bought with a blank check. I've
known people who used an old millstone to set the dial on, or ,who laid a
slab over an old stone garden urn, or
who saved the capitals from 'pillars on
a house being torn do.wn, or who even
rigged up a standard'*from'tbe"BSficka I
of a chimney on an old _cimes(i-_a»11-at I
had meant a lot to them. One family
made a sort of cairn out of a geology
collection some ancestor had formed.
Another took a i_|ag iwle for the gnomon
and laid out a dial with pebbles ln tbe
grass around the pole.
"No, it doesn't require any skill te set
up the dial. Get the noon mark for the
gnomon on several days, nick it on the
slab and then set the dial in a bed of
cement.   There you  are."
Baptism In Morocco.
This Is the way an Infant Is christened in Morocco: "When the first child Is
born—and the parents ore accustomed
to wish for a girl as a happy omen—
the mother of the young matron sends
a basket containing the layette of the
Infant, along with henna, eggs and
pigeons. Tbe baby is stained with
henna from head to foot and tbe little
body, smeared with butter and wrapped
In flannels. The seventh day is the
dap of baptism. At the drat hour of
the morning .the friends are invited to
the repast About 9 o'clock a 'taleb,'
or, better still, a 'shereef," sacrifices a
sheep on behalf of the child and as he
cuts the animal's throat pronounces
the sacramental words, 'In tbe name
of God it ls the baptism of such an
one, son of such an one.' Then the
child ls washed for the first time,
henna is put on Its hands and feet
khol under its eyes; lt Is clothed ln Its
finest robes and put Into its mother's
bed, at tbe bead,of which lighted taper* are burning."
Solving  the Problem of Stalk  Han.
-Unit and High Priced Land.
Stalk fed stock is inferior to silagej
fed stock, and the heavy stalks accumulating in the barn and yards are hard
to handle.   It is a difficult matter to
get them upon the field, and after they
are there tbey hinder cultivation.   Tbe
part of the stalk below the ear is said '
to represent 50 per cent of the nutri-1
tion of tbe fodder.   If that ls allowed
to become ripe and woody you lose 50
per cent of tbe feed value.   This half
of the stalk Increases the difficulty ln
handling at least 100 per cent    All
these problems are solved by tbe silo.'
It takes all the corn, cuts It up at a
time when lt ls full of rich feed and
preserves  lt  In prime  condition  for
winter use.   The manure from silage
fed Btock is preferable to that of stalk
fed stock because it is much easier to
handle and can be applied to the land
more economically.  The silo is "It"
On High Priced Land.
When farm land sells for anything
above $65 an acre it ls something of a j
problem how to make the average crop !
pay for it The beef farmer Is up
against lt good and hard, and tbe dairy
farmer has no snap unless he attends
to business and ls posted. If a man Is
going to keep one cow to every four
acres and if he has to pay $80 an acre
for the land tbat cow must make him
$10.20 above expenses in order to pay
the interest on the money Invested In
the land alone. This does not allow
anytblng for Improvements, Interest on
the price of the cow or labor. The
solution of the whole problem lies In
silos and silage. The forty acre farm
with a silo ls worth just as much as
the eighty acre farm without one when
it comes to earning capacity. If a man
depends upon hay, corn and pasture
alone he can keep only abont one-third
as much stock as If silage entered his
ration. Tbe silo ls the solution of prof-
Its from high priced land, declares
Kimball's Dairy Farmer ln conclusion
to the foregoing appreciation of the
silo. It gives more feed for less money,
and the feed Is harvested at a more
desirable time.

It will pay every man to weigh the
milk of every cow at every milking.
Records show that there are whole
herds that do not return the cost of
feed. Weighing pays because only a
definite record of the best cows shows
whether each .one is doing her best or
for some reason is going wrong. The
next best scheme is a week's test every seventh, week. This will give near
the actual yield. You canuot afford to

Australia Hat Daapaat Gold Mine.
Australia now possesses the deepest
(old mine ln the world. Within the last
few weeks tbe shafts at the New Chum
Railway at Bendigo, Victoria, have
been sunk to a depth of over 4,300 feet,
and the quartz there topped has been
sampled and crushed, with the result
that a yield of gold equal to an ounce
per ton has been obtained.
The operaHons ln the mine haye been
tested by Government officials. In view
of the fact that never before ln the
world's history has gold been obtained
from so low a depth as three-quarters
of a mile.
The Victorian Director of Geology, BS.
J. Dunn, ln the course of an official report upon a sample from the 4,300-foot
shaft of tho New Chum, writes:
"This remarkable specimen of auriferous quartz Is evidence of the vast
stores of wealth ln gold possessed by
the State. It ls a guarantee of the
stability and progressive pr nsperlty of
Bendigo that Buch rich ore exists at
such great depths. The winning of such
ore from a vertical depth of over three-
quarters of a mile from the surface ls
an achievement of which Bendigo miners may Justly feol proud."

Coaxing the Cow.
Milking is only coaxing the cow. The
dairy business cannot hold up when
you feed white top hay scraped off
poor fields to cows that are unable to
shed their hair. Early cut clover and
grass, bran, linseed and gluten feed,
with little change, give excellent re- /
suits. The American cow has had too
much exercise in the past. She is hard
worked in the mere making of milk.
When properly fed and watered he-

Life and Death.
So he diod for his faith.   That iB fine-
More than most of us do.
But Bay, cau yon add to that line
That he lived for it, too?
Io his death he bore witness at last
As a martyr to troth.
Did his lifo do the same in the post
From tho days of his youth?
It is easy to dio! Mon.bnve died
For a wish or a whim—
From bravado or passion or pride.
Was it harder for him?
But to live—every day to live out
All tho truth that he dreamt,
Whilo  his    friends  met  his  conduct
with doubt
Aud the world with contempt.
Was it thus that he plodded ahead.
Never turning aside?
Then we'll talk of the life be lived.
Never mind how he diod.
