Author of "Eben Holden." "D'ri and 1." Elc.
COPYRIGHT.      1905,      BY      LOTHROP      PUBLISHING      COMPANY
IT was tn 1835, about midwinter,
when Brier Dale was a narrow
clearing, and tbe horizon well up
in the sky and to anywhere a
day's journey. Down by the shore of
tbe pond there Tberon Allen built bis
house. Today, under thickets of tansy,
one may see tbe rotting logs, and there
are hollyhocks and cutnlp in the old
garden. He was from Middlebury,
they say, and came west—he and his
wife—In 1829. From tbe top of tbe hill
above Allen's of a clear day one could
look far across the treetops over distant settlements that were as blue
patches In tbe green canopy of the, forest; over hill and dale to tbe smoky
chasm of the St. Lawrence, thirty miles
north. Tbe Aliens bad not a child.
They settled with no thought of school
or neighbor. They brought a cow witb
tbem and a big collie whose back had
been scarred by a lynx. He was good
company and a brave hunter, this dog,
and one day—it was February, four
years after tbelr coming, and the snow
lay deep—be left the dale and not even
a track liehind bim. Far and wide tbey
went searching, but saw no sign of
bim. Near i month later, one night
past 12 o'clock, tbey heard his bark in
tbe distance. Allen rose and lit a candle and opened tbe door. Tbey could
bear bim plainer, nnd now, mingled
with bis barking, a faint tinkle of bells.
It had begun to thaw, and a cold
rain was drumming on roof and window.
"He's crossing the pond," said Allen
as he listened. "He's dragging some
heavy thing over tbe lee."
Soon be leaped in at the door, the little red sleigh bouncing after bim. Tbe
dog was in shafts and harness. Over
tbe sleigh was a tiny cover of sailcloth shaped like that of a prairie
schooner. Bouncing over tbe doorstep
bad waked Its traveler, and there was
a loud, voice of complaint In tbe little
cavern of sailcloth. Peering in, they
saw only tbe long fur of a gray wolf.
Beneath lt a very small boy lay struggling witb straps that held blm down.
Allen loosed tbem and took him out
of the sleigh, a ragged but handsome
youngster with red cheeks and blue
eyes and light, curly hair. He was
near four years of age then, but big
•nd strong as any boy of five. He
stood rubbing bis eyes a minute, and
the dog came over and licked his face,
(bowing fondness acquired they knew
not where. Mrs. Allen took tbe boy in
ber lap and petted blm, but he was
afraid—like a wild fawn that has just
been captured—and broke away and
took refuge under tbe bed. A long
time sbe sat by ber bedside with the
jiandle, showing blm trinkets and try-
lug to coax bim out. He ceased to cry
when she held before blm a big, sblny
locket of sliver, and soon bis little hand
came out to grasp It. Presently she
began to reach bis confidence with sugar. There was a moment of silence,
then strange words enme out of bis
hiding place. "Anuli jouhan" was all
tbey could make of them, and they remembered olways that odd combination fit vsoirnds,1 They gave him food,
'Which he a— witli eager haste, then a
H—_icnt of silence and an imperative
call for more in some strange tongue.
When at lust he came out of bis biding
place he fled from the woman. This
time be sought refuge between the
knees of Allen, where soon his. fear
gave way to curiosity, and he began to
feel ber face and gown. By and by he
fell asleep,
They searched the sleigh and shook
out the robe and blanket, limliBg only
a pair of warm bricks.
A Frenchman worked for the Aliens
tbat winter, and the name, Trove, was
of^hls Invention.
'And so came Sidney Trove, liis mind
ln strange fetters, traveling out of tbe
land of mystery ln a winter night to
Brier Dale.
THE wind, veering, came bitter
cold; tbe rain hardened to hail;
the clouds, changed to brittle
nets of frost and shaken to
shreds by the rough wind, fell hissing
ln a scatter of snow. Next -morning
wben Allen opened his door the wind
was gone, the sky clear. Brier pond,
lately covered with clear ice, lay under
a blanket of snow. He hurried aerqss
the pond, his dog following. Near the
far shore was a bare spot on the Ice
cut by one of the sleigh runners. Up
ln tbe woods, opposite, wiih the MOhm
trail. Sunlight fell on the hills.above
* him. He halted, looking up at tbe tree-
tops. Twig, branch and trunk glowed,
with the flre of diamonds through a
lacy flecking of hoar frost. Every tree'
had ji_i| on a jacket of ice and become
as a'f8nntaln of prismatic Hues. Htre
and there a dead pine rose like a spire
of crystal; domes of deep colored glass
and towers of jasper were as the landmarks of a city. Allen climbed the
shore, walking slowly. He could see
no track of sleigh or dog or any living
thing. A frosted, icy tangle of branches
arched the trail—a gateway of this
great, crystal city of the woods. He
entered, listening as he walked.
Branches of hazel and dogwood were
like Jets of water breaking Into clear,
halted dropB_ and foamy spray above
bim. He went on. looking up at thlf
long sky window of the woods. In
rae deep silence be could bear bis heart
'Sport," said he to the dog, "Bhow me
-_e way." But the dog only wagged
bis tail.
Allen returned to tbe bouse.
"Wife," said he, "look at the wooda
yonder. They are like the city of holy
promise. 'Behold I will lay thy stones
with fair colors and thy foundations
with sapphires, and I will make tby
windows of agate.'"
"Did you find the track of the little
sleigh?" said she.
"?*o,"  he answered,  "Bor will  any
man, for all paths are bidden."
"Tberon,   may  we  keep  the boy?"
she inquired.
"1 tblnk It is the will of God," said
The boy grew and throve In mind
and body.   For a time he prattled ln a
language none who saw him was able
to comprehend, but he learned English
quickly and soon forgot the jargon of
his babyhood.    The shadows  of mystery that fell over his coming lengthened far into his life and were deepened
by others that fell across them. Before
be eould have told the story all memory of whom he left or whence he caine
had been swept away.   It was a house
of riddles whsre Allen dwelt—a rude
thing of logs nnd ladders and a low
roof and two rooms, yet one ladder led
high to glories no pen may describe.
The-Aliens,   with   tbls   rude  shelter,
found delight ln dreams of an eternal
home   whose   splendor   and   luxury
would bave made them miserable here
below.   Wbat a riddle was this!   And
then, as to the boy Sid, there was the
riddle of his coming and again that of
bis character, which latter was, indeed,
not easy to solve.    There were few
books and no learning ln that home.
For three winters  Trov^  tramped  a
trail to tbe schoolhouse two miles Away
and had no further schooling until he
was a big, blond boy of fifteen, with
red cheeks and large eyes, blue and
discerning, and hands hardened to the
i az helve.   He had then discovered the
. beauty of the  woods and begun to
' study the wild folk that live in holes
and thickets.   He had a fins face.   Tou
| would have called blm handsome, bnt
'■ not they among whom he lived.   With
■ them handsome was as handsome did,
| and the face of a man, if it were clean-
I ly, was never a proper cause of blame
or compliment, but there was that ln
his soul which even now had waked
tbe mother's wonder and set forth a
riddle none was able to solve,
(To Be Continued.)
i in' voltnlre of the Eml.
Omar Khayyam was a famous Persian poet and mntbemnticlan in the
twelfth century, who was employed by
tbe Sultnn Malik Shah In revising tbe
astronomical tables and ln making a
thorough reform of the calendar. He Is
better known to us as the writer of
some 500 epigrams in verses of four
lines which are unsurpassed In their
pure diction, fine wit and crushing satire. These clever and fascinating
quatrains were put Into English by
Edward Fitzgerald, who in 1859 published "The Rubaiyat of Omar," a rendering marked by 'exquisite melodiousness and by poetic ^nslght and. power.
Omar has heen called the Voltaire, of
the east because' of his brilliant and
pungent wit, while his depth of tenderness and profound thought and his denunciation of the fate which dooms to
decay and death what is best and most
beautiful in the world reveals much
that reminds one of Byron, Swinburne
and sometimes Schopenhauer.

Canada's Meat Northerly City Has New
a  Population  of 12,000—Grew
From 1,200 In Five Yoars.
The building permits of Edmontnn
this year are over one million dolla-s
ln value.
I Five years ago the city had 1,200 of
a population; a conservative estimate
now places the population at 12,000, and
| ln great confidence the good people
I of the most northern city expect to
have ln another five yenrs 35,000 Inhabitants.
The city owns Its public utilities,
electric light, water works and telephone systems. For a thousand miles
north wheat cam be grown. Government statistics on the crop of 1905 show
the average yield of spring wiieat 'n
the Edmonton district to have be?n
24.2$ bushels, and winter wheat 24.51
to the aero.
I Subserves Enormous District.
|    The city subserves an enormous district to the north.     In that vast territory the Inhabitants sleep ln blankets
mode In Edmonton of Central Alberta
wool, and eat flour, oafmeal, bacon and
: butter made at Edmonton, the   latter
| being  enclosed  ln  tubs  of  Edmonton
manufacture.   The doors and windows
ln the far northern residences are sent
from   Edmonton   factories;    and    the
dg_rs smoked are the product of one
i of   Its   flourishing   Industries       Every
| package of merchandise that goes Into
that country bears the brand of some
Edmonton house.
It ls essentially a modern town, with
yet a fund of historic associations. It
was scarcely a village ten years ago,
and nearly three-quarters of lt have
been built during the last four year,..
The city Is one of the greatest primary
markets for fur on the continent. It
ls rapidly becoming also a milling centre, there being now ln the city and
"tear-by territory, fi :e flour mills and
a cereal mill, with a flour mill of 250
barrel capacity under course of construction.
Enormous Su --'v of Coal.
Another obvious factor In Edmonton's development la the enormous supply of easily-mined coal of high grade,
whleh underlies the city and surrounding distiiet. This coal is so easily
mined that lt can be sold retail, and
delivered Into the cellars of citizens at
a cost of J3.00 a ton. Coal of good
steaming quality it delivered to mills j
and factories at a oust of not less than
J1.50 per ton.
The buildings that are seen along the
streets are not of the light, cheaply
built class more or less temporary so
often noticeable ln a new town ln the
West. They are solid, massive, permanent structures. The water works
and sewerage systems, together with
the electric lighting, were taken over
In 1902. The water Is taken from the
Saskatchewan, a glacier-fed stream
which Is absolutely free from organic
matter. On electric lighting the city
ls making a good profit notwithstanding that rates are lower than In other
Western cities, the revenue this year
"xceedlng J50.000. The service ls beyond criticism, and no town In Canada Is better lighted than the new
capital. There are now about 350 telephones on the Edmonton exchange
(also a munloipal enterprise). There
Is a farmers' line going through the
Clover Bar and Agi-lcola settlements.
A Mile ef Cement Walk*.
Notwithstanding the enormous cost
of cement at such a distance from
points of production, last year a mile
of cement walks was put down, fourteen feet wide.
Some of Edmonton's public school
buildings are structures which would do
credit to any city In Canada. Alberta
College, completed about a year and a
half ago, has built an addition whlcH
doubles the capacity of the bul'dlnj.
With the coming of the new the old
passes away. Recently the Old Inn of
Edmonton was torn diwn, a place
around which life centred forty or fifty
years ago. They still tell the tale thai
when any traveler complained of the
fare provided at the hotel he was gravity advised to go to the next, which was
only 750 miles on, Portage la Prairie
being the first stop after Edmonton
that boasted an Inn.

„..AND THE-.
By Harriet Bitchelor Bradner
"Calumet," supposed to be an Indian
word meaning "pipe of peace," was
wholly unknown among the savages.
It Ib Norman and signifies in general a
pipe. The pipe of peace was a "ga-
nowdaoe" among the Iroquois and a
"poagun" among some otber tribes.
The Algonqulns called lt "poagan," the"
Wlnnebagoes "tnhneehqo" and tbe Da-
cotahs "cbalndonhoopa."
The day Eleanor Beverly bad been In
her position as Cornwell's secretary six
months something happened. Tbe political boss of his precinct, McWllllams,
having made an engagement over the
telephone, paid tbe young lawyer a
visit at lunch hour, when the place was
practically deserted.
Having carefully closed the door behind him, he settled his huge bulk in a
chair and came at once to business.
"Mr. Cornwell, we need your support
ln the coming election," he began Impressively, "If a man of your sterling
worth comes out for our candidate It
will settle the vote of the majority."
"Impossible!" returned Cornwell decidedly. "As I bave repeatedly told
your agents, I do not approve of your
selection and cannot conscientiously
vote tor him. As to the influence of
my decision, you greatly overestimate
"See here, Cornwell, we've got to
have you with us. Llpper Is aH right
Man, you're prejudiced—unjustly prejudiced. Why, he's tbe most inoffensive
fellow—harmless as a kitten!"
"That's my opinion of Mr. Lipper exactly," observed Cornwell, smiling
grimly—"Inoffensive, harmless, unable
to say 'no;' a weak feol in the hands
of unscrupulous politicians."
"Hey? What's that about unscrupulous politicians?" McWllllams' bulging
eyes glared savagely. "This ain't no
subject to be treated without gloves."
The two men looked into each other's
eyes for the space of a second, tbe one
angry and uncomfortable, the other
calm and undisturbed. Then McWllllams leaned forward and began in a
confidential undertone:
"Look here, Cornwell, I don't mind
confessing to you tbat we're up a
stomp. Lippers ls a regular frost, but
If we fall to elect him there'll be no
end of money lost."
"Which a good natured alderman,
once elected, will see to returning, of
course," Interrupted the lawyer dryly.
"I'm glad you catch the drift of my
remarks so quickly." McWllllams'
■mile was comprehensive and bland.
"Yes, I follow you perfectly, but you
haven't my sympathy." Cornwell look-

Bavins Tcmnmio'is Voice. '
Recently Tamagno, the Italian tenor
and the greatest singer of the age, de?
6lrtng to leave for his children some
record of his genius, had made upon
specially prepared plutes for reproduction hjnthe phonograph several records
of his songs. Two of these records
have' been preserved In a museum lu

t_,e other at the end of a century. t
ed him straight ln the eye. "Mr. McWllllams, you knew before you came
here that I wasn't open to bribery!"
And he settled back In bis chair.
The boss of the precinct emitted an
ngly smile. Fumbling In an Inner coat
pocket he drew out an envelope and
extracted from it a canceled check.
'• "I tried.to persuade you gentle," he
said. "Now we'll see what pressure
can do-" And, still holding the smile,
he handed Cornwell the check.
"Well, what of It?" he asked after a
brief examination.
"What of ltl'l exclaimed McWllllams
In exasperation. "What of a check for
$5,000 to you from Hendricks—Hendricks, tbe grafter?" ' '
The young man flushed angrily.
"And bo you purpose to show thle as

some deal' for $5,000?" he, said,' the
color creeping away from his lips as
he redbgnlzed the false position - into
which ithe presence of tbe check forced
him. "Mr. McWllllams, you know better than that!" Even the well seasoned boss shrank a little from his anger.
"Some time ago Mr. Hendricks hurriedly entered my offlce and begged
me to ii'ml him $5,000 in cash to close
out a real (state deal, hs he said. He
explained that the owner was leaving
Immediately for the west and, as it
was after banking hours, refused to

Had the light subsequently thrown oa
his character Illuminated Mr. Hendricks at the time I would unhesitatingly bave refused his request. This,
Mr. McWllllams, is the explanation of
that check—facts with which you are
doubtless already acquainted."
"Indeed! Let me advise you, my
friend, to remember your vote while lt
Is possible." The politician's tone was
Insultingly familiar. "Tbls little fairy

Cornwell rose'slitlly to his feet. His
eyes were dark with auger, and hia
muscular hands clasped and unclasped
ln an effort of Belf control.
'So your plan is to frighten me Into
submission, eh?" he said, bis voice
ringing with contempt.   "Well, It won't
work.   1 don't RCare worth a , even
at a charge of bribery!" and his' tine
lips curled.
McWllllams leaned back in his chair,
his pudgy thumbs hooked lu the arm-
holes of bis waistcoat. "Who'll prove
your story to a jury?" he asked Insolently. His eves narrowed to furtive
Blits.   "Who'll prove it, 1 say?"
"I will," answered tbe ringing voice
of a girl—"1 will!"
With a violent exclamation of Irritation, the grafter sprang to his feet, and
Cornwell, wheeling, looked straight
into the shining eyes of Eleanor Beverly, who stood just within tbe door.
"I knocked, but hearing no sound,
supposed no one was here," sbe said to
him breathlessly. Then her eyes traveled to the other man, and sbe spoke:
"You are the grafter McWilliains. I
have been waiting for you to come."
"You surprise me."
"I expect to surprise you still further," Miss Beverly replied easily. "Mr.
Cornwell," she continued quickly, "two
months ago I sat behind this man and
a friend of bis on a trolley."
McWllllams lunged forward, his eyes
predatory and threatening.
"They both bad been drinking and
were talking rather loudly. I beard
them speaking your name and laughing
over a trick tbe other man bad played
on you—a trick that put your honor la
their hands. They spoke of the check*
—Cornwell set his teeth, and bis eyes
blazed—"and told how they expected to
use it as a weapon over your head in
the election. I listened—because I
knew I could help you."
"Why didn't you tell me of this before?" Cornwell asked eagerly. "Wby
did you keep lt to yourself?"
"I—you," the girl hesitated, her lips
trembling In embarrassment "you had
so much to worry you at the time that
I—I thought I could watch alone," she
finished hurriedly. "Nothing could bs
done till he"—pointing—"made the first
move." Looking at the man she had
protected for a sign of. approval, she
saw la his eyes a look that sent a
quiver of joy into the secret places of
her heart making the warm blood
surge Into her cheeks..
McWilllams looked fixedly into her
radiant eyes, and his own face slowly
There was a time once when If the

shook his huge shoulders helplessly.
"Cornwell, it was a dirty trick. If ths

Under and the Student*.
During one of his warmest political
campaigns Benjamin P. Butler was
advertised to make a speech In a town
hall situated near one of the smaller
New England colleges. Some of the
students of the college who did not
sympathize with Butler ln his political
aspirations agreed to have a little fun
at his expense. As a preliminary move
they decided to wait until after the
time for beginning tbe meeting and
then go ln a body to tbe hall, martin together, making as much noise as
possible In securing seats and thus
compel the speaker to pause in his remarks. Then a series of various interruptions was arranged, to be start- j
ed at different times upon the signal
of a chosen leader. General Butler
had been speaking for ten minute*
when the hall door, opened and about
forty, students entered and marched
down toward the platform. They kept
perfect step, and the steady tramp,
tramp made it Impossible for the
speaker to go on. Quietly waiting until they had all taken their seatB, Butler said, with a smile, "It ls perfectly
evident which end of themselves these
young men can use best." There were
yells of laughter and hearty applause
from the audience, and no further attempts to Interrupt the speaker wero
made by the students.

Dr. Chase's Syrup of Unseed and Turpentine
The records of attendance at the
Toronto Public Schools show that
ten thousand children were absent
on account of colds during a single
"The worst enemy of all to the
child, so far as keeping him from
school is concerned, apparently is the
common, everyday cold," said Dr.
Goodchild in his report to the Ontario School Association.
"Not only does the cold prove an
enemy in this way," he continued,
"but it is well known that many of
the more serious diseases follow from
the simple cold. As a result of the
patient becoming weakened down in
his resistance against disease, the
germs of various infectious diseases
the more easily find a place to multiply somewhere in the organism."
Parents who make a practice of
keeping Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed
and Turpentine in the house have
at hand the most certain means of
curing    coughs,   colds, _ croup,   and
bronchitis, and positively preventing
more serious disease. It is sometimes forgotten that few ailments possess more possibilities of danger than
a cold.
Mrs. E. D. Turner, Broadview, N.
W. T., writes: "We have seven
children and have used Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine for
every one of them and with good results. We get four bottles at a time
and find it a good remedy to break
up colds on the lungs."
Not only is Dr. Chase's Syrup of
Linseed and Turpentine a positive
cure for croup, bronchitis, whooping
cough, asthma, and severe chest-
colds, but it is also a preventative of
all diseases of the lungs.

How   Nicholas   Wooed.
How Czar Nicholas as Grand Duke
wooed Princess Alix of Hesse is described in a Communication from St.
Petersburg to the Vossiche Zeitung.
At Walton-on-the-Thames Nicholas
had encountered the young princess
for the first time, and his desire to
marry her was approved by Alexander
III. The Czarevitch had now to do
the wooing. One beautiful summer
evening he met the lady of his choice
in the pavilion alone, and absorbed
in reveries. The opportunity was as
favorable as the Grand Duke could
desire, but he found it hard to pop
the question in the stiff form prescribed by Russian Court etiquette,
and the words almost stuck, in his
throat when he finally took courage
sat down by the side of the princess
grasped her hand, and solemnly declared: "The emperor, my father, has
commanded me to offer you both my
hand and my heart." "The queen,
my grandmother," the princess answered, smiling, and with a roguish
twinkle in her eyes, "has commanded
me to accept your hand." Whereupon she burst out laughing, and
added: "As to your heart, I accept
It of my owr. free will."
They Are Not Violent in Action.-—
Some persons, when they wish td
cleanse the stomach, resort to Epsom
and other purgative salts. These are
speedy in their action, but Berve no

incipient chills, and if persisted in
they injure the stomach. Nor do they
act upon the intestines in a beneficial way. Parmelee's' Vegetable Pills
answer all purposes in this respect,
and have no superior.
Two mutual friends sat near a very
conceited man at lunch one day.
"What makes him look so glum
thia morning ?" said the first.   .
"Why," said the other, "he visited
on Egyptian palmist last night, and
the fellow told him his wife would
marry twice, and the Becond husband
would be a remarkably fine chap."
"Aha! He thinks that's rather a
reflection on himself, eh ?"
"Not at v.11. He thinks his wife
was married before and never told
him."—Boston, Post.

The most secluded missionary post
in the world is probably the one on
Herschell Island, in the Far Northwest of Canada. The nearest post
office is 2,000 miles distant, so that

is there any vegetation. The Eskimos, among whom the missionaries

Another Wny to Put It.
"A shining example of private virtue
and an exalted teacher of good and
honest government" Is the description
of Robert Toombs of Georgia given in
"The Brother's War." Toombs was a
prominent , character for mauy years
before the war and served in the two
houses of congress about fifteen years.
He was afterward secretary of state ln
the Confederate government
He had a wit and a fineness of expression, says the author, which made
his phrases and repartee widely quoted
and made him the delight of appreciative audiences.
A. rival candidate, really conspicuous
and celebrated for his little ability, ln
a stump debate pledged the people that
if they would send him to congress he
would never leave his post during a
session to attend the courts, as he unjustly charged Toombs with habitually
doing. Toombs disposed of this fling
by merely saying:
"You should consider which will hurt
the district the more, his constant presence in or my occasional absence from

The spring hats call for a great deal
of trimming, all of whioh will probably
be at enhanced prices. The recent ad'
vance in the raw silks is recollected in
al) manners of silk trimmings, such as
chiffons, malines, blaok and colored,
and silk flowers. The advanoe in trimmings will be from 10 to 26 per cent,
Ribbons have also advanced in practically all lines,
The new shapes are widely diversified,
both as to style and material. In 'styles
there are hoods, mushrooms, flats, and
Italian body hats. Prosy le flats to be
made up in any shape eome in various
shades. The mushroom shapes are
mostly in chip and Milan, and are in
innumerable variety The hoods in
Leghorn, Java or Manila, Italian body
hats in Cuba are also shown in many
color combinations. They are a decided
Hint of an approaching demand for
velvet costumes are seen by some whole'
Balers in the number of elegantgowns
of this material now being worn by
smart people who are generally in advance of tne fashions. Manufacturers
of velvet staffs are making preparations
for an enormoup trade next fall. Anew
line of cotton velveteen will then be
offered, whioh promises to be quite a
novelty. It has all the appearance of
silk velvet, but is of greater width, and
has none ot the drawbacks of the real
silk goods.
Wholesalers are now experiencing
in the print lines one of the effects of
the new tariffs which has increased the
duty about twenty-five per oent on tan
ported goods. As a large amount of
prints had already been sold and were
on order in the Old conn try, the wholesaler is forced to bear the whole brunt
of an extra duty. The tariff has pro
duced some other effects in the trade
whioh have not yet reaohed the retailer.
Among the fabrics most acutely affected by the tariff are glass chocks and
bordered roller towelling and the checks
in the glass cloths brings them under
Uie flat 25 per cent ruling, whioh ' alone
means an advance of 8H per cent in cost
over last year.
Indications of the recurrence cf short
sli'i-ves in women's gowns are found in
the scramble taking place for the possession of stocks of long gloves. A
buyer from a well known departmental
store in the States haa been through the
Toronto wholesale bouses recently look*
ing for stray lots of these gloves that he
could buy to take back home. The long
glove fashion was so extreme that it was
expected to be transitory, but it appears
able to last another S-isoat

A  Reminiscence   of the    Many    Pleasures    of    a    Short
Vacation   Spent Amid   the  Qlories of the Canadian Alps.
(Contributed   by   H.   W.   Dearman.)
Dear Mother
The mantle of night had scarcely
enveloped the busy western metropolis one evening early in August,
when  the  writer ensconce-    himself
the sensation in first gazing upon
those mountain giants is certainly' a
peculiar one. The tourist experiences
alternately u sense ot boundless ad-
snugly in a C. P, E. first class coach miration and a feeling ot ecstatic
to be whirled across the vast prairies pleasure that seem to paralyze ail
of the Canadian West to enjoy a powers of speech and leave hrm
brief respite from the daily grind in i transfixed with astonishment. Ad-
a first visit to that province of moun- jectives have not yet been manufac-
tain splendor and wondrous scenic j tured that will begin to convey an
beauty—British Columbia. With that j adequate idea of the magnificence

tween Winnipeg and the Mountains,  snow-capped    peaks whose    towering
most of those who chance to scan this
brief narrative, will, no doubt, be already familiar, and therefore it is
necessary to make but passing mention. At that time of year, however,
and in a year which for abundant
harvest bids fair to eclipse anything
on record, the sight of so many immense stretches of ripening grain
was one calculated to implant a
spirit of pride and satisfaction in the
breasts of all who can drink in the
"view and revel in reflection upon the
illimitable possibilities of agricultural development in a country of such
huge Areas of soil of matchless fertility. Indeed, there is small room
to doubt that the eight hundred odd
miles of prairie covered in the run
to Uie foot of the Eockies will one
day- appear as it weie an unbroken
field of waving grain—a glorious tribute to that wealth of heritage to
Which we are proud to lay claim today.
* But while dwelling for a moment
upon the consideration of the almost
unbounded stretches of grain fields,
there is another factor, and that a
.potent one, in the development of
Western Canada, which must not be
'lost sight of, and that is the cattle
industry. Ond needs but a passing
glimpse of the vast herds of cattle
and flocks of sheep that dot the landscape, to obtain u pretty accurate
-conception of the' important - part
iplayed by this branch of husbaridry
in our country's upbuilding. One may
•see as many as ten thousand in one
flock of sheep, while bands of cattle,
mrfny hundreds strong, are no uncommon sight; and more finely-conditioned stock one could hardly wish
to cast evo 1'pon, but this is no cause
for woilder wlien me boundless
stretches of thai?''most nutritious of
pastorage — Western Bunch Grass—
are taken into consideration. . From
Moose Jaw to Calgary seems one vast
•cattle range; but with the advent of
•irrigation facilities it is safe to predict that tlie grazing areas will make
way for the plough, cultivator and

is the remarkable purity and transparency of water wherever seen, while
mere seems a very legion of springs
bubbling  forth    from    the    crevices
along those portions of the bases of
the mountains that are visible to the
naked eye.    First you will see a little stream trickling through a small
cleft in the rock to wind its almost
trackless course through a myriad of
small pines and-ferns and empty itself in some mightier flood; or, again,
you  catch  sight,   far   up   the   rocky
steep, of some rushing torrent, fed by
seemingly inexhaustible  snows    and
glaciers,    leaping   turbulently     from
crag to crag  in its impetuous' haste
to find its level in one of the many
lakes so constantly in view.    Of the
glories  and  wonders    of  the    many
places of interest    along the    route,
such   as   Banff,   Laggan, .Field,   Glacier, etc., too much cannot be    said
but the greatest tribute to the wealtl
of beauty and scenery is found in the
ever-increasing    numbers of    tourists
from every quarter of the globe that
are everywhere seen and tax to their
limit of capacity the resources of accommodation of the many    superbly
appointed hotels of the Ct, P. R. and
fill to repletion all the privately owned hotels along tlie route throughout
the entire  season.    While  the  lakes
in the clouds,  the hot springs,  and
the vast  glacier  fields   always   command  a  protracted  visit,  there   are
other equally  interesting sights that
should  not  be  missed,  such  for instance as "The Great Divide," where'
a small stream is seen    gently descending the mountain side,   and ere
it reaches the railroad track dividing
into  two  small  rivulets,  the  one  to
swell into a mighty river that will forever be pouring its Waters into the Pacific ocean, the other to flow- eastward
and northward   with   ever-increasing
strength till it finds its outlet in the
Hudson's Bay.   Or take, again, some
of the great 'engineering feats in the
construction of thai., necessarily most
tortuous    of  lines    that  runs    from
mountain to sea.    It is not sufficient
that  the   'path  of    the  iron    steed
should   be  hewn    out  of  the    solid
gtfartite, :but it has at times    to    be
swung across  some  torrent    rushing
hundreds of feet below.    One of the
most  interesting  and  withal'   nerve-
hag' 'Shaking pieces of construction is that
found  west    of  Glacier    where    the
course of the line in crossing a deep
valley, takes the shape of the letter
S,    spanning several   times,   at   an
alarming  altitude,    the  same    rapid
stream,  and ultimately    leaving the
valley at an elevation many feet below that at which it entered.   Again,
the view at such places as the Kicking Horse Canyon, with its four tunnels to be seen at" one and the same
time, and Roger's Pass, with its tremendous grades, u,ud glimpses of many
astonishing twists, and turns and curve's along the -route, will all serve to
keep green in    Jjjie memory  of    the

Shortly after leaving the main line
the mountains seem to recede from
View, like mists before the rising sun,
and gradually diminish in size till,
at the head of the lake, they assume
more the contour and appearance of
hills of average size. Around Vernon
and north to Armstrong, lying to the
north of the lake, there is a magnificent stretch of rolling country where
immense crops of grain and fruit are
annually harvested, and where irrigation is available it is no uncommon thing to cut four crops of hay
or clover in the same year. A visit
to the extensive fruit ranch (they call
them ranches, not orchards) established near Vernon by Lord Aberdeen,
affords one of the most pleasing spectacles to be found anywhere in the
country. Here may be seen to what
degree of perfection fruit culture can
be developed with the aid of skill
aud science and modern facilities and
the co-operation of Dame Nature in
her most generous mood; and one
can readily understand how it is the
products of this ranch have attained
such a..world-wide reputation.
At Okanagan Landing the writer embarked on the C. P. R;
steamer "Aberdeen" for Peachland,
the. point of destination, and the
memory of the pleasures of this most
enjoyable portion of the trip will ever
remain. Lake Okanagan is a lovely,
transparent sheet of water some 75
miles long and averaging two to
three in width, and is literally teeming with fish of the genus trout. Indeed, fishing in the lake as well as
in the creeks that skirt its shore ni-
.•fofds constant occupation to many
who make it a source of livelihood,
while, the.amateur devotee of line and
rod will find his Elysium within constant" reach in almost any portion of
the valley. After leaving the Landing the first port of call was Kelowna, which enjoys a most picturesque
locution on a large 'stretch of beach
land on the eastern shores oi the
lake. This thriving town is situated
in the heart of' a famous fruit' section 'and is acquiring ever-increasing
notoriety for the quality and quuiij
(ity of the products annually exported.
I From Kelowna is a short run of
some fifteen miles to Peachland, the
limit of our lake trip. The first
glimpse of Peachland nestling on the
western shore of the lake is suggestive of that peace and contentment
tl^at ever appeal so strongly to the
jaded city slave, while the physical
surroundings of the district seem to
have been designedly constituted by
Nature to afford one of the most,
charming landscapes the eye could
wish to rest upon. But there is a
material charm to this district that
is. daily forming a still greater attraction. Peachland, as its name
suggests,- is essentially a peach-raising district, and in the production of
this peerless of fruits it stands unrivalled in Canada today. This section, though of comparatively recent
settlement, already boasts of many
bearing ranches, and the writer picked fruit from trees in their fourth
year that would average at-least three
cases of peaches to the tree, and saw.
as much as one thousand dollars'
worth of fruit gathered from less
than two hundred five-year-old trees.
And such peaches! We had never
tasted fruit with such a peculiarly
luscious, mellow flavor—so different
to the insipid, green-picked apologies
for Reaches one frequently, finds exposed for sale in centre's far removed
from the source of production. And
it-is not alone' in the raising of
peajthes that Peachland will; excel,

ial factor in the supplying of the
markets of the Canadian West with
all varieties of fruit.
After a brief sojourn ln Peachland,
we rejoined the main line at Sica-
mous Junction to continue on to
the coast, and soon were again traversing a wealth of lake and mountain
splendor, shortly to emerge into a magnificent stretch of ranching country
reaching out for many miles in all
directions, with tt distributing centre
in the flourishing and picturesque
town of Kamloops. From Salmon
Arm clear to Ashcroft, on either side
of the line, are seen many attractive homes, in the establishment of
which mixed farming, under most
favorable conditions, has evidently
played no mean part. Here, too, we
find that irrigation is becoming
a strong factor in successful agriculture, und huge crops have been garnered wherever an unlimited water
supply was available to develop that
latent wealth of soil bo common in
these mountain regions. From Ashcroft on toward the coast we again
passed through numerous rugged
mountain defiles, where railroad and
river seem constantly vying for the
right-or-way, though considerable expanses of comparatively open country are seen west of Agassiz, at
wnicli point there is a very interesting and extensive experimental farm
operated by the Dominion Government. Perhaps the most attractive
sight between here'and the coast is
the magnificent view;had of Mount
Baker, in Washington, rearing its
twelve thousand odd feet of rock and
glacier far into the clouds.
On  reaching    Vancouver,  the  features of paramount interest, after a
protracted residence    so many.miles
inland, were naturally, the ocean and
its commerce.    The sight of the sea
at all  times  arouses a pleasureable,
exhilarating sensation, and one never
seems to tire in the contemplation of
the  wonders  of  the   deep  and    the
study of the important part the ocean
plays in the commerce of the world,
so freely instanced on every hand in
the  countless  varieties  of  merchant
craft.    After  indulging  iu a dip in
tlie briny and enjoying the sights of
Vancouver   for a    couple    of    days,
which, of course, included a visit to
the far-famed Stanley Park and    an
inspection of its mammoth trees, we
shipped on the Princess Victoria for
Victoria.    That is, without a doubt,
one of the finest floating palaces ever
engaged in the passenger traffic    of
the ocean.    It is fitted  with    every
modern    convenience, has   exquisite
cuisine, and is elaborately furnished
in perfect taste and style, and affords
another instance  of  the magnificent
scale upon which    anything    undertaken by the C. P. E. is carried out.
The beauties of the trip to Victoria,
on a day of perfect calm and cloudless firmament, witn a clear perspective  of  the gorgeous  island scenery
that lines the route, cannot easily be
described,  and words can only convey  but a faint conception    of  the
pleasure, experienced. The "Princess"
traverses the Gulf    of Georgia,  and
entering the Georgia straits winds its
course through myriads of lovely islands and sandy bars down into the
Straits of Juan de Fuca, 'and, rounding the southernmost .point of Vancouver Island, comes to. anchor'in a
harbor of naturul beauty'at the very
threshold of one of the fairest cities
of the  Pacific.    And here it is that
Nature seems to have been most lavish of her gifts, for there abound in
and around Victoria many spots    of
great scenic    beauty the charms    of
which  beggar description.    The physical formation of the district is decidedly hilly but from the many eminences may   be   obtained 'some   of
the most delightful  views  ofrislapd

And the journey back over the
prairies was by no means uninteresting, for at frequent intervals throughout the entire distance the familiar
hum of the binder was distinctly
audible, while full many a mighty
field of golden grain had already
bowed its head before the reaper, and
now, far as the eye could see thickly-clustered stooks dotted the horizon awaiting the fan of the separator.
In conclusion, the writer has
endeavored, though imperfectly,
to '■• briefly describe the pleasures of the trip and to
pay a fitting tribute to the glories
of Nature's creations, there is a deed
of the Canadian Pacific that cannot
be too highly extolled. Few of us,
no doubt, realize what a colossal, almost superhuman, undertaking it
must have been to penetrate such a
labyrinth of mountain and valley and
complete the steel engirdlement of
this vast, continent. And surely, indeed, do we one and all owe a lasting debt of gratitude, to that company for making possible the enjoyment of : such majesty of scenic
beauty, while compassing such pleasure with every comfort and convenience knoWn to the executive and mechanical skill of modern railway genius.

WHAT a very long,  cold winter
It had been!   And for what a
long time the poor little bunnies had not been able to find
enough to eat!
Nothing was growing up above, and
the ground was so hard that they were
unable to scratch lt ud and nibble the
roots which grew underneath. They
lived for ever so long on the bark of the
trees; but the farmer did not like his
fruit trees to be nibbled, so he put wire
repeated. "I quite admire your genius
for telling it by the feeling ln your
bones. I tell it by the shining of the
sun. But lt may not be spring yet, for
all that. Let us go for a run and see If
the young grass Is sprouting and the
roots growing. They are the only sure
Bigns, after all."
So up they went, and sure enough,
they found that all the little green
plants were coming up out of the earth
to look at the sun.
They   only   stopped   long   enough   to
"By my grandfather's paws and earst
Where did you come from?" asked Mr.
Bunny, looking the picture of astonishment.
"PleaBe, I heard you playing, and I
broke out of my cage, because I love
to play, and I hoped you would not object to my joining you," said poor Mr.
Now, I think all boys and girls will
agree with me that bunny rabbits are '
among   the   best-natured   of   animals.
These were, anyhow, and they felt bo
around them, and the poor little bunnies
had to go hungry.
One morning Mrs. Bunny woke up and
began to sniff the air with her pretty
little nose. Then she became greatly excited.
"Wake up! Wake up!" she cried to
Mr. Bunny. "The sun is shining, and I
am Bure the spring has come at last!"
"Nonsense, my dear," replied Mr. Bunny with a sleepy yawn, "nonsense." But
tne next minute he sat up and sniffed
the air, too. {
"I believe you are right after all, my
dear," he admitted. "The sun is shining."
How they could tell that the sun was
shining up above when they lived ln a
dark little house right under ground I
do not know. But they could. Some anlmnls are .really very clever, you know.
"You are quite  right,  my dear,"  be
taste the fresh leaves.   Then they ran
oft   to   toll   their   friends.
"Wake up! Wake up! The spring ls
here," they called, and soon ever so
many bunnies were laughing and skipping about over the fields, full of joy
because the cold winter was gone.
"I think we must have a spring .
party," Bald Mr. Bunny, "down ln the- <
green pasture by the woods."
"Oh, yes, do, please!" chimed In all
the other bunnies; "that would be
lovely." And so they arranged it. ,
The Mrs. Bunny Rabbits made''themselves some lovely dresses; but what
they made them of I do not know exactly. Maybe they used little green
leaves and grasses and pussy willows.
The day of the party came, and they
all went In the pasture by the woods.
Here they danced and played leapfrog
and all kinds of jumping games., because '
the bunnies like those games, better
than any other kind.
Then they had a lovely tea party of
tender green leaves, and were about to
play some more games when they heard
a voice say:
"Please, may I play with you? I'm
so lonely."
.There stood a porcupine—a prickly
scrry for Mr. Porcupine because he
had no one to play with, and said:
"Come right along and Join In this new
game we are starting."    So Mr. Porcu-
fiine ran up and tried to Jump about
Ike his playmates. But he was a
bristly,  prickly  fellow,  you  know.
"Oh, deur, dear; he ls tickling me!"
screamed Mrs. Bunny.
"Oh, o-o-o-ohl he is scratching me!"
cried this one and that one, and so on
all around the circle.
All the bunnies began to look very
angry. Poor Mr. Porcupine stopped
right still and sighed:
"Oh, dear! that Is the way things always end with me. 1 always have to
end up by going off and playing all by
myself. And lt Isn't my fault at all—lt
is all because I have these horrid bristles!" ■ ".!'
And so he turned away, and looked
so lonely again that the bunnies felt
very regretful.
"I know what we can do," said Mr.
Bunny, with a bright look. "We can
pl.ay [ hide-and-go-seek, and then we
n*ed-;not go very close to Mr. Porcupine 4nd his spikes will not hurt us."
So they called him back and had a
delightful game of hlde-and-go-seek.
So Mr. Porcupine at last found some
playmates who would be willing to play
with him again the next day, and the
next, and the next. That made him
very happy, and now there is no danger of his ever being lonely again.

SOME of the boys in Peytonsvllle, a
Suburb of one of our large cities,
got up a mighty nice-looking club
house a summer or two ago, which
will be a good model for any of you
boys who want to make yourselves one.
The best part of this one is that it
cost almost no money—only time. Of
course, during vacation, boys who do
not pretend to earn their living cannot
Justly call their time worth money.
One of the boys, writing a description
if the club house, says:
We drew the plan nn a sheet of paper
first, and figured out roughly about how
"luch wood we would need.
Then we got our wood In hand. Father
had a number of packing boxes, including a piano box, and one of the fellows
got his father to give him some old
studding that had once been part of the
chicken house. The other boys contributed boards of various lengths and
as the roof was wide, and commenced
tacking the strips on the roof at tha
lower edge, lapping the next strip two
inches over the last, and so on to the
top. This made a good, water-proc_*
Then we _■ d the floor; but flrst we,
placed three or four joists on the ground »
so as to raise the floor a few inches ""
above the ground and keep it dry. '•
Jack Burns got a window sash from
his father, and another boy got a door
from his dad. And that just fixed us
up prime.
Nex thing, we took thin strips of wood '*
and nailed them on the outside of every
crack that we  found.    And we  tacked a
brown wrapping paper all over the In- ,
side   walls   and   celling.    Then   over   It
wo pasted wall paper that our mother.*,
gave  ub.    We   didn't   have   enough   oil

Heart in the Right Place .
A MAN   who  sells  cut   flowers  at   a
stand downtown was waiting for
trade the other afternoon, when a
newsboy, dirty and ragged,  came running up.
"Say," said the boy, "whot's the price',
uf them red flowers?"
"Those carnations, you mean? They're*
,two cents apiece," said the man. „
"I'll trade you a paper for one," said
the boy. The flower seller accepted the
offer and the boy ran away with his
carnation. A few minutes later he returned.
"Say," he snld, "I just sold a paper.
Gimme another uf them red flowers.
Here's the two cents."
The man at the stand handed him another carnation and accepted the pennies with a smile. As the boy started

Then we set lo woik and used the
studying for our framework, ln two
places we had to nail two short pieces
of studding together to make the correct length.
I forgor to say we put the club house
ln the corner of our back yard, so it
wouldn't be in any one's way.
Each corner of the framework was
built ln a foundation which we made by
sinking a great stone or a few bricks
ln the ground.
We were particular to make the
framework perfectly solid and strong
before we tried to nail the siding boards
After we had boarded up the sides and
fitted them around the window and door
openings as nicely as we eould, then we
got at the roof.
. First we covered it with boards at
about one inch distance from each other.
Then we cut strips of tar paper as long
tistically as we could,  and really,  the
result was bully!
Last of all, we banked up enough earth
all around the foot of the house to keep
the rain and rats out, covered lt wilh'
nice sod that we cut from a vacant lot.
around the square, ond then we planted
trupipet-vlne and morning glory and
honeysuckle, which' soon grew up and
covered the entire house, making it almost as pretty as you can possibly Imagine. ,      ' - -
The girls were awfully nice about furnishing the house; they,have It all to
themselves Saturdays, and we boys
stay out doors and play ball.
It's great fun and, we wouldn't be
without our club house for anything, especially on rainy days. We get tigeth'.T
and play all sorts of inside games and
read Scott's and Stevenson's and Hen-
ty's works aioud.

These chairs cnn be quite varied. For
Instance, you might have two plain, as
ln the picture, simply painted with enamel, or varnished and shellacked, according to tho way you finished the flrst
furniture. Then you can have one chair
with the seat covered with padding and
covered with some pretty, plain material
of one of the shAiH's of tho bed draperies; while another might be padded
on seat and bnck, and hnvo a valance,
or box-plaited piece, fastened around the
seat with brass-headed nails, to conceal
the legs.
I'm sure many of Polly Evans' Ingenious little carpenters will havo no
difficulty at all In making this attractive set of furniture. •
Even  today  In  some English villages
they have a very pretty custom, called
i .ill in Iniug. The children gather in hands
early in the morning and go from house
to house singing:
"Good morrow to you, Valentine,
Curl your locks as I do mine,
Two before and three behind,
Good morrow to you Valentine."
|At   each   place   thoy   visit   they   are
thrown pennies or candles or some llttle
gift, and have great fun,scrambling for
. Other English children get up beforo
the sun rises on Valentine Day, to be
the flrst to say "Good morning" to pass-
crsby, and thus "catch a valentine."
However, If they are little sleepy
beads and do not get to work before the
tun Is up woe is theirs, for they are
.'sun burnt" and are entitled to no re.
The bought valentines, as we know
[hem today, only appeared toward the
middle - of the nineteenth century. In
I.S49 a Miss Esther Howland, whose father kept a book store in Worcester,Muss,,
(tarted the valentine business In America by cutting out pictures, pasting
them on sheets of letter paper with'
ncalloped edges, and had her young
brother copy versos on them In his
found, school-boy hand. These became
so popular that Mr. Howfand had to
employ four young girls .to help his
daughter. Before long thew were made
more elaborate, and soon Miss How-,
land's valentines brought her ln many
thousands of dollars each year, .^ren't
