his policy for the coming year, which
iuclndes better water supply for Mt.

City asking the exhorbltant prico of 16c

charged previously. He continued, the

him to go.

carried that picturo of his young
wifo with him for many a long day
as ho saw her then, standing on tho
stone porch, the dark crimson roses
that' cl imbed ovor tho arched door
forming a glowing background for
the little figure in the whito mull
dress, with the palo whito blossoms
on hor breast, and the slanting rays
of tho red gold sunlight falling on
her curling hair und upturned face.
When they wero by themselves,
Bonnylin brought a hassock, and
knelt down at his feet, telling him
that she could be happy hero no
longer—he must take her away at
, For a moment he caressed tho
golden head thoughtfully.
1 "It is quite impossible), darling,"
llie declared, "wc must wait until wo
get a remittance from home to settle our bills here and take us on ; it
will be along in the course o[ a
\vVek or so, I dare say."
•How was he to know that down
deep in hor heart she was moaning
out 4a agony :
"A week or so. Heaven help mo,
my lifo might be blasted by that
time, laid in ruiiiB, and tho bitterness of death surrounding me."
No wonder she pleaded with him ln
Words eloquent and tearful, pleaded

it was lifo or death with Bonnylin.

"Be reasonable, my darling," ho
said, holding out his arms to hor.
"I would do anything In tho world
to please you or win from you one
smile; but this is impossible. You
know nothing of business affairs,
Bonnylin, nnd I wouldn't havo your
pretty head muddled with it for

business womun. Of course you did
not know, dear, thut affairs of this
kind need a few days, and now that
I huvo explained it to you, suy to
yourself: "Le Hoy knows best, n

For answer llonnylin drew a deep
breath, then fell dowu at his feet In
a deep swoon. It was dusk i when
she regained consciousness. Lo Uoy

Creeping stealthily to a Wardrobe,
she rjuickly donned her bat and sack,
and glided noiselessly from tho

and slip tho key in lier pocket.
A strange, desperate resolve hud
come to her, nnd she trusted to fate
to help her curry it out.    ■

Stranger things than this for love's

flirt resolved
to risk it;  her    lilo;
her love and all her hopes of happi
ness lay in the Issue.
Pausing before the ofllco of tho In-'
ternational Cabla Company, Bonnylin glanced hastily around. No ono
was in sight, and sho hurriedly entered.
Ono of the young operators sat at
his desk, deeply absorbed in tho
evening copy of one ol the London

"I am sorry 1 cannot sCnd it foi1
Vou—it is impossible," ho said, smiling.
A sudden dimness seemed to creep
over Bonnylin's senses, and her blue
eyes filled with the bitterest tears,
which touched his heart   deeply.
"Oh, sir!" she asked pitoously,
"hnven't you some friend over there
—in Boston, I mean— whom you
could get to send it back here?"
The young operator drew back in
dismay. The very suggestion staggered him.
"You surefy cannot be aware of
whut you are asking me to do," he
suid, not unkindly: and readily Boeing sho did not comprehend tho
matter as a deception, "will you
tell me the object of this?"
"Yes," said Bonnylin, smiling
through hor tears. "Tho gentleman
addressed Is my husband. AVo camo
hero from Boston lately. I have
been pleading with him to return
homo; but he iB deaf to my prayers.
I thought this would be suro to ln-
lluence him," sho faltered.
Ho was relieved and glad to know
thu object of such a proposition was
innocent, only a young girl's scheme
to havo her own way und outwit
her husband. Ho could not understand how a husband could possibly
refuse this golden-haired littlo creature anything. And a thrill of disappointment shot through his heart
at the thought that she wns married.
"Then you absolutely refuso mo?"
said Bonnylin,  pitoously.
"I must," he replied. "Tf I sent
It, do you know what the result
would be lo me?"
"No,", faltorcd Bonnylin, trombling
"As soon as the deception was discovered, which would be bound to lie
the caso ultimately, 1 should not
only loso my place here, but 1 would
bo thrown Into prison. The company
is quite as careful about tho messages that pass in. and out of our
hands, as the Inspectors of tho
malls' are in regard to what passes
through tho mails. Think of tho dls-
graco that would follow me, for it
never would bo forgotten whilo I
lived, if I wero accused of lending
myself to such a schema," ho said
"I think I comprehend what you
moan," answered Bonnylin, faintly.
"I did not know it would be looked
at in that way. Pleaso forget such
a request was mado."
Beforo ho could reply, the littlo figure in tho long, durk cloak, and tho
Bweet faco framed in a sheen of
golden hair, had vanished.
Hurrying homeward, Bonnylin
scarcely paused for breath until she
found herself once moro In her own
upartments. She had hardly thrown
off her cloak and hat ere thero was
a knock at the door, and sho heard
Le Hoy's voico calling:
"Bonnylin, I say, Bonnylin, why in
Heaven's namo don't you answer
mo ?   open the door, dear."
Mechanically sho crossed the room,
slid back tho bolt and flung open the
With' a quick step Le Hoy entered
the boudoir.
"I havo been here twice within tho
lust hour, knocking for admission.
Why did you refuse to open the door,
darling?" he asked reproachfully.
"Did .you take il so vory much to
bear, uecauso i wouia not take vou
away  from hero V"
Bonnylin burst Into passionate
tears, nodding her head dumbly,
'Well, then, dry those tears, love;
it pains mo to the heart to seo those
precious blue eyes suffused by them.
You shall havo your own way. We
will go wherever you like."
He never forgot how she flung her
white arms around hiin and thanked
him, smiling up at him through her
tears. He knew it was madness to
humor this whim; but ho could sooner have died than refused her. Ho
was amazed at the Immediate chango
ln Bonnylin. She was so gay and
happy. No "Wilder, poor littlo soul;
Lo Hoy had promised to tako her
away. She would not be here when
tho American party arrived at the
villa, If Basil Severne was among
them, sho would escape him,
Tho evening that followed seemed
llko a dream to Le Hoy. It wus bo
much like tho old, happy days In
which he and Bonnylin wero lovers
—those days in which ho could never
quito make up his mind whether willful, coquettish little Bonnylin really
loved bim or not.
Bonnylin was moro thun happy at
tho prospect' ot Hying tho whole

of her mortal foe, and still hiding in
lier breast her pitilul secret from Lf?

He would be sure to seurch for her

Thus she fed her poor, fluttering
heart on false funcies, and her doom
came upon her quite unawares. Slowly the days glided by, and tho fateful morning of the seventh dawned
bright and clear.
The eventful morning brought with
It no cloud to warn Bonnylin of impending danger.
Bonnylin was an early riser, and,
tying on her sun hat, ond leaving
l.o Hoy to dream tho* golden hours
away, sho strolled out into tho garden, down tho highway, and on toward tho margin ot the stream that
skirted tho village.
Suddenly tho sound of swiftly approaching footsteps fell upon her
ear, nnd through tho interlacing
blanches of the trees sho saw a man
approaching; but instead of raising
her bluo eyes as she walked along,
sho kept them flxul dreamily upon
the pretty wild flowers at her feet.
Tho man did not pass ber; instead,
he stood still in tlie path beforo her,
and the harshest, bitterest- sneering
laugh that ever was heard foil upon
the sunlit air.
With a swift intuition of dread,
Bonnylin raised her blue, terrified
eyes nnd saw standing before her
Ba3il Severno. Sho tried to Ily past
him, but ho put out his hand and
caught her white arm.
"So," ho cried liorcoly, "wo meet
nguin, Did I not tell you that you
should never escape me? I knew you
had been saved. I saw him hand you
Into Uie boat; thon I lost sight of
you. I havo been zealously searching
for you ovor since; 1 waul you to
answer mo ono question; have you
dared to como here with Lo Hoy
Pierpont, after what happened that
night on tho deck of tho ill-fated
steamer, knowing that you belonged
to mc---not to him?"
"Spare mo," murmured Bonnylin,
pitoously; "in mercy spare me," sho
cried, kneeling down in tho long,
daisy-studded grass at his feet and
raising hor beautiful, terrillod face,
pallid with despair, to his "I am at
your mercy; oh, be pitiful."
Ho frowned darkly upon hor, a
smilo of demoniac triumph curving
his g.im lips.
"Listen to whnt I have to Bay,
Bonnylin—fair bride — who dared
stand at tho altar with another
scarcely a week after my supposed
death— listen to me, I will be more
merciful to you than you desorvo. I
will be what you asked mo to     be,
pitiful. I Summon you by tho right
of a husband to my sido. I claim
you. You are mine by tho law of
Heaven and man. If 1 did what
strict Justice enjoins I should cxposo
you to iho world. Thoso who accuso
you of ono crimo, would show you
littlo mercy for tho second and almost as great a one." .;
He saw 'ho lovely faco framed In
its sheen of golden half grow as palo
as tho white petals of.the daisies,
and tho thought enme to him that

"But," ho resumed, "I will be

ho said slowly, his passionate eyes
devouring her fair loveliness as ho
spoke, "I placo the alternative beforo you. If you refuso to come with

Bonnylin fell upon lier face amid
tho long grasses with a cry so bitter
that it startled oven the singing
birds in the trees above hor.

cried, "you could not; I would not

And before she could divine his In*
tentlons he had seized her ln bis
strong arms, and his desperate, passionate kisses fell upon her cheek,

But help was near; there were
sounds of quick, hurried footsteps in
tho underbrush. A young man who
had been sauntering out for a morning walk, and thoughtfully smoking
his cigar, heard those piercing
shrieks, each one of which went
through his heart like a dagger's
thrust—for lt was Lo Hoy—and ho
rorognlzed Bon.nylin's voice.
How ho reached tho scone ho could
never after fully remember, and tho
sig'ht that met his gazo froze the

back from tho brink of tho river and

horrible imprecation. "You shall

Le Hoy rierpont knew tho value
of wasting no strength or breath in
useless words.
Then followed the most dosporate
struggle for life or death that tho
golden sunshine ever foil upon. Both
had had the advantage of scientific
training in the art of self-defence,
and now ench made tho most of his
knowledge. The blows on each side
fell like hail. It could not last much
longer, this, horrible struggla for life
or death.
In the midst of it Bonnylin's senses
returned. As her eyes opened, they
fell with n horrible terror words can
nover describe, upon tho awful
sccno,        %
With a cry that must have plcrccS
the groat white throne In Its pitiful,
eoncuntratod agony, sho shrieked out!
"Oh, God in Heaven, Bparo Ls

With ono straight, unexpected blow,
hit square from the shoulder, Basil
Beverne was laid full length unconscious at his feet.
Even ln that moment Le Hoy
would not turn from his fallen foe
until ho ascertained whether or no
ho was seriously injured. Finding he
was not, he loft him lying In tho
grass to recover as best ho could,
nnd turned his attontion to Bonnylin.
With gentle, tender hands ho lifted
her to her feet, attempting to sootho
bor with loving words, but Bonnylin clung to him with frantie terror.
"Let us fly beforo he recovers!"
jihe cried, wildly, "or I am lost! Oh,
Lo Roy, quick, quick, for tlio love of
Heaven let us fly: we havo not a
moment to lose; seo, ho is recovering

Lo Roy Pierpont drew Bonnylin's
hand hurriedly within his, aud half
forced, half carried her into an adjacent by-path that led toward tho
But she drew back in sudden fright.
"Not there, Lo Roy," alio whispered in terror: "don't you know thoy
arc expecting a pnrty of Americana
at the villa? Ho is probably among
them; we must not go back thero."
Of course Basil Severne had recognized Bonnylin before she had Been
him, or this encounter would not
have huppenod.
Le Roy refrained from questioning
her minutely ns to how it camo
about, seeing how terribly agitated
sho was.
Onco Bonnylin had opened hor
whito lips to glvs somo plausible explanation, but ho had checked her.
"We will not talk about it ' now,
darling," ho said. "You shall tell
mo all about it somo other time."
How near discovery hor horrible so-
crot had been for the second timo;
nnd for tho second timo "Heaven had
spared her," she told herself thankfully.
Lo Roy could soo thnt Bonnylin
was quito right; it would to madness to return to the villa, for no
doubt Basil Severne made that his
stopping place—indeed, tho vlllago
boasted of no other hostelry.

A Town In Northern Holland Which
For Over Two Hundred Year* Hni
Had Ihc "llluht- to Welsh" livery
Cheese Made In the Realm.
Though Eldam, on the Zuyder Zee,
gives Its name to those rose red spheres
we know as "Dutch cheeses," which
are Instinctively associated with ln-
l. ' digestion, yet lt is Alkmaar, ln north
ern Holland, that conduces to the weekly Importance of this edible of commerce, as any one who has ever stood
In the quaint old market place upou a
Friday, and about the hour of noon,
Will have speedily come to understand.
For the Dutch cheese producer, indeed, "all roads" may be said to lead
to Alkmaar, likewise all waterways,
nnd there aro many of them. Thither
come tbe cheeses by rail, by cart and
by boat; you stumble over them inside
the station as you alight from the
train; they dispute tbe right of way between the rows of narrow, many colored and curiously gabled houses; they
stand ln solid stacks upon the landing
stages—heaped up like cannon balls in
readiness for an Immediate bombardment and, lf 'twere not libelous to
breathe aught savoring of disrespect to
a friendly country's national comestible, as deadly, possibly, also to an unaccustomed stomach as their leaden
But. be that as it may, the cheese
market ls s rare good sight ln quaint
Alkmaar when the peasant proprietor
and his vrouw come ln to drive their
bargain at the weigh boouse with the
wholesale agents from far and near,
and every hostelry does Its own brisk
trade with both parties. Across those
rounded bridges peculiar to Holland
come shoals of peasant folk ln picturesque attire. Who does not know
by now the dress with its glorious cap
nnd golden "corkscrew" ornaments, the
pride of many a generation, making
pretty faces doubly bewitching and
lending some Bubtlo nttrnctlon to even
the hardest featured dame well up in
years? On they come—clatter, clatter,
clatter, voluble with their guttural fluency we somehow feel we ought to understand because of Its confusingly
familiar sound, but its very kinship to
German *.ji.ds us astray, aud we listen
and listen till the jargon about the
weigh boons* becomes a more hopeless Jumble of sounds than ever to our
ears, and we content ourselves with
turning our attention to tbe building
Itself. It stands where Its richly painted facade cnn be Been clearly reflected
In tho cool, Bmooth waters of the neighboring canal, a dignified old pile, built
in 1651, with an especial eye fo tho
growing importance of Dutch cheeses,
Alkmaar having ln thnt yeur received
Its "right to weigh" from William of
Orange, and thus every cheeso changing hands from that date onward having passed from the producer to tho
dealer across the Alkmaar scales. The
preseut ones, by tho way, which havo
hung lu their placo since 1092, were
made ln Amsterdam at a cost of 858
' guilders and, having conscientiously
performed tbelr duties without a hitch
ever since, certainly speak volumes for
the workman, hip of 200 _ind odd years
Though the littlo town Is thronged
from earliest morn with orderly
crowds of heavy Hollanders, It ls uot
until the musical chimes within the
all Important weigh hoouso turret hnve
signified the hour of noon by breaking
forth ln melody, generally from somo
wall known comic opera, that the actual business of the day begins, although, "uneffleially," both parties to
the coming transactions have probably
already taken time by the forelock
over a glass of holtands ln some Inn
on the maarkt. Now, however, the
cumbersome ware ls carried within
doors, the time honored ceremony is
gone through and the ticket stating
the correct weight of each given, after
which act the money changes hands.
It ls a study lu temperament, this
weigh hoouBe scene ln tho littlo Dutch
town. No "hurry skurry" mars the
calm of tho place or disturbs the phlegmatic, pipe Bucking Individuals primarily Interested in the transactions
here going forward. The cheese nlone
seems riotous and Inclined to wholesale
insubordination, with a mind to roll
hither and thither, possibly resulting
from some "subconscious" memory of
cows, green meadows nnd buttercups
■nd a disinclination to coming bondage
upon the prosaic shelves of Borne provision dealer.
If so, we honor the "last kicks," futile though they be, for accustomed

Editor of "The Advocate":
Will you please permit mp to draw
the atteution of tho Ratepayers to
tbe action of the Reeve aud Council of
South Vancouver in refusing to grant
the petition of those Ratepayers iu the
southwest portion of tbe Municipality,
for a polling station ut Eburue, lit the
forthcoming Municipal elections, not'
withstanding that the expense of said
polling station was guaranteed on behalf
of said Ratepayers. Many electors will
thus have to travel on the return trip
from six to twelve miles over rough
roads to recoil their voto or otherwise
let tho election go by default, as has
been dono jn the past, much to the
detriment of the Municipality as a
I submit there should be at least three
polling stations, one at or near Cedar
Cottage, oue at the Municipal Hall and
one at Eburue.
A threat has beeu mode that if the
progressive party attempts to have a
change in the Municipal Council, .here
will be enough yotes fetched (rom the
Oity to defeat their efforts.
Now,I submit it is time those Electors
who live in the Oity—in jnsl.ee to them
selves as well as us—should either take
an intelligent and aggressive interest in

Eburne, B. O, 3d January 1905.
To the Electors of
Vancouver. ,
In response to urgent requests that I
become a candidate for School Trustee,
I am pleased to announce myself a can
didate for 1905.
I appreciate the importance of publio
education aud tho wisdom and foresight
required in its administration.
My experience as Teacher, Deputy
Minister of Education in Manitoba,
and as School Trustee in Winnipeg npd
Victoria, will I feel assist me in discharging so important interests as those
of our Public Schools.
I believe in education and that its
chief factor is the child.
If elected I shall endeavor first and
last to give my best thought and energy
to our schools.
Thanking ypu in anticipation.
