Thero wus n grocery store near Milker's olllce, and the proprietor came out
on tho sidewalk  and  Joined the two
men.   Ills nnine was Harnett.   He wns
•n  powerful  man,  who stood six feet
■ live In hlu boots.   lie wore no coat, nnd
Lis suspenders were soiled and knotted.
"I  see you  uns Is watchin' Craig's
lloor," be snid.   "I've bnd my eye on it

(vhat to make of it.    1 went thar to

'Im go In about nn hour ago. I mighty
nigh shook the door oll'u the hinges.
His clerk, tbat western fellow, Wln-
sblp, bas gone off to visit Iii:i folks, an'
I reckon maybe Craig's got all tho
bookkcepiu' to do."
"Well, be oughtn't to keep his doors
closed at this time of day," remarked
Miller. "A man who bas other people's
money in his charge cun't be too careful."
"He's got some o' mine," said t-e
grocer, "and Mary Ann Tarpley, my
wife's sister, put ifilOO thar day before
yesterday. Oh, I reckon nothlu's wrong,
though 1 do remember 1 heerd somebody say Craig bought cotton futures
an' sometimes got skeord up a little
about meetin' his obligations."
"I bave never heard that," said Rayburn Miller, raising bis brows.
'.'Well, I have, nn' I've heerd the
snme o' Wlnshlp," said the grocer, "but
I never let It go no furder. I nlu't no
hand to circulate 111 reports agin n good
member of the church."
Miller bit bis lip, nnd nn unpleasant
thrill passed over him ns Trabue
walked ou. "Twenty-live thousand,"
he thought, Is no small amount. It
would tempt five men out of ten lf

were In a tight."
The grocer was looking at blm steadily.
"You bank thar, don't you ?" he nsked.
Miller nodded. "But I happen to
huve no money there rlgbt now. I
mnde a deposit nt tbe other bank yesterday."
"Suspicious, heigh? Now, jest n little, wasn't you?" The grocer now
spoke with uudlsgulsed uneasiness.
"Not at all," replied the lawyer. "1
was doing some business for the other
bank and felt tbat I ought to favor
them by my cash deposits."
"You don't think thar's anything tho
matter, do you?" asked the grocer, his
face still burdening.
"I think Cruig Is acting queerly—
very queerly for n banker," wns Miller's slow reply. "He has always been

"I'm going over there," snld Miller
abruptly, and ho hurried ncross In tbo
wake of tbe big grocer. The miller followed blm. On the other side of tbe
street several people were curiously
watching tbe bnnk door, nnel when
Burnett went to It nnd grasped the
handle nnd began to shake it vigorously they crossed over to blm.
"Wbnt's wrong?" said u denier In

was another furious shaking of the
"Wby, man, what's got Into you?"
protested the fruit dealer In a rising
tone of astonishment. "Do you intend
to break thut door down?"
"I will If tbnt skunk don't open it nu'

was now red in the face nnd almost
foaming at the mouth. "He's bnck In
thar, an' he knows it's past openin'
time. By gum, I know rnore'n I'm
goin' to tell right now!"
This was followed by nnother rattling of the door, aud tho grocer's enormous weight, like a battering ram, was
thrown against the heavy wulnut shutter.
"Open up, I say-open up in tbnr!"
yelled the grocer In a voice bourse with
passion nnd susppnse.
A dozen men were now grouped
around the doorway. Burnett released
tbe handle nud stood fuciug them.
"Somethlu'g rotten in Denmark," bo
panted. "Believe nie or not, fellows, I

A thrill of horror shot through Miller.

the Bishops had lost their all. How

Bishop might within the last week have
drawn out nt least part of the money,
but that hope was soon discarded, for
ho remembered that the old man waa
waiting to invest tbe greater part of
the deposit in somo Shoal Creek cotton
mill stock which had been promised
him in a few weeks. No; the hope was
groundless. Alan, his father, Mrs,
Bishop and—Adele.
Miller's heart sank down Into the
very ooze of despair. All thnt he Jpid
done for Adele's people and which bad
roused her deepest, tenderest gratitude
was swept away. Whnt would she
think now?
His train of thought wns rudely broken by nn oath from Barnett who
with the rage of a madman suddenly
threw his shoulder against tbe door.
There was a crash, a groan of bursting
timber and breaking bolts, and the
door flew open. For one instant Miller
saw the ghastly face and cowering
form of the old banker behind the wire
grating, and then, with a scream of
terror, Crnlg ran Into a room in tbe
rear and thence made his escape at a
door opening on the side street. The
mob filled the bank and did not discover Craig's escape for a minute;
then, with a howl of rage, It surged
back into the street. Craig was ahead
of them, running toward the church,
where prayer meeting was being held,
tbe tails of his long frock coat flying
behind him, his worn silk hat lu his
convulsive grasp.
"Thar he goes!" yelled Barnett. And
lie led the mob after bim, nil running
at the top of their speed without realizing wby they were doing so. Tbey
gained on the lieclug banker, und Burnett could nlmost touch him when they
reached the church. With a cry of
fenr, like that of a wild animal brought
to bay, Cruig sprung up tho steps and
ran into the church, crying and groaning for help.
A dozen men aud women and children wero kneeling at tbo altar to get
the benefit of tho prayers of tho ministers nnd the congregntlon, but they
stood up In alarm, some of them with
wet faces.
Tbe mob checked Itself at tbe door,
but the greater part of it crowded Into
the two aisles, a motley human mass,
many of them without coats or bats.
The traveling evangelist seemed shocked out of expression, but the pastor,
Mr. Lapslcy, who was nn old Confederate soldier and used to scenes of violence, stood cnlmly facing them.
"What's nil this mean?" he asked.
"I came here for protection," whined
Craig, "to my own church nnd people.
This mob wants to kill me—tear me
limb from limb."
"But whut's wrong?" asked the
"Winship," panted Crnlg, his white
head bunging down as he stood touching the altar railing—"Wlnshlp 's absconded with all the money in my
vault These people wnnt me to give

I would refund every cent If I bnd It!"
"You shall have our protection," snld
the minister cnlmly. "Thoy won't violate the sn-redhosB of the house of God
by raising a row. You are safe here,
Brother Craig. I'm sure all reasonable
people will not blame ydo for the fault
of another."
"I believe he's got my money," cried
out Barnett In a coarse, sullen voice,
"nnd tho money of some o' my women

turn It over! Oh, he's got money hid

"Even now you are laying yourself liable to serious prosecution for threatening a man with bodily Injury when

them being only small depositors, and
Burnett found himself without open
support. Uo was silent Rayburn Miller, who hnd come up behind the mob
nnd was now In the church, went to
Craig's side. Many thought he was
proffering bis legal services.
"One word, Mr. Craig," be said,
touching • the quivering nrm of the

turning on him. "There was nothing to

It was their money thnt tempted Wln-
Bhlp. He'd never seen such a lurgo pile

"You don't mean"— But Miller felt
the utter futility of the question on his
tongue and turned awny. Outside he
met Jeff Dukes, one of the town mnr-
Ehals, who had been running nnd was
Very red In the face nud out of breath.
"Is that mob In thar?" he asked.
"Yes, and quiet now," said Miller.
"Let them alone. Tbe Important thing
Is to put the police on WInshlp's track.

"I'll have to tit the particulars from

"Well, I'll see you In a minute, and

Farther down the street Miller met
Dolly Barclay. She had come straight
from ber home, In an opposite direction from tbe bank, aud bad evidently
not heard tbe news.
"I'm on my way to prayer meeting,"
she smiled. "I'm getting good to please
the old folks, but"— She noticed his

Miller. "I .was fortunate enough to escape."
"But Alan—Mr. Bishop?" She was

Miller did not answer, but she would
not be put aside.
"Tell mc," Bbe urged; "tell me that"
"If I do, It's In absolute confidence,"
ho said, with professional firmness.

lips moved mutely, ob lf repeating the
.words he hod Just spoken. "Poor

Miller toucbed his hat and started
on, but sbe joined bim, keeping by his
side like a patient, pleading child. He
marveled over ber strength aud wonderful poise. "I nm taking you out of
your way, Miss Dolly," he Bald gently,
more gently than he had ever spoken
to her before.
"I only want to know If Alan bas
heard.   Do—do tell me that."
"No; lie's at home. I shall ride out
ts soon as I get the matter In the
bands of the police."
She put out ber slender, shapely band
nnd touched his nrm.
"Toll him," she snld In a low, uncertain voice, "that It bas broken my
heart. Tell blm I love him more than
I ever did and tbat I shall stick to blm
Miller turned and took off his hat
giving her his hand.
"Aud I believe you will do lt," he
said. "lie's a lucky dog, even If be

"Well, tell blm," snld Dolly, with a
little, soundless sob In her throat, "tell
blm what I told you."
HAT afternoon tbe breeze
swerved round from the
south, bringing vague threats
of rain. About 3 o'clock Alnn,
bis uncle and bis mother and father
were out In tbe front yard looking at
the house with a view to making somo
alterations that had been talked of for
several years past
"I never bud my way In anything before," Mrs, Bishop was running on In
the pleased voice of s happy child,
"an' I'm glad you are goin' to let me

"Sho knows what Bhe wants," said
Bishop, with one of his Infrequent
smiles, "an' I reckon we'd save a little
to let her boss the job ef Bhe don't
hender the carpenters by too much
talk. I don't want 'cm to put lu a stick
o' lumber that ain't the best."
"I'm glad she's going to bave her
way," said Alan. "She's wanted a better house for twenty years, and she
deserves lt."
"I don't believe In sech fine feathers," said Bishop argumentstively. "I'd
a leetle ruther wait till we see whether

At this Juncture Alan called their attention to a horseman far down the
road. "It looks like Ray Miller's mare,"
he remarked. "This ls one of his bmis>

"Is that so. Hay?" asked Alnn, calm

"Can nnythlng at nil be done?"

Here old Bishop, with compressed
lips, turned and walked unsteadily into the house. With head bunging low
and eyes flashing strangely, his wife
followed blm. At the steps she pnused,

her despair. "You must stay to early

"I'd find n way," retorted Daniel
hotly, "so I would."
"We'll do nil we can," said Miller.
Daniel strode into tho bouse, nnd
Ainu went nfter his horse. Sillier stood
at the gate, Idly tupping bis boot with

That evening nfter supper the fninily

S Abner Daniel lenned over the

two weeks later he saw evidences of the cx-moonshlncr's thrlft-

love for hia children. A little express
wngon, pnlnted red, such aa city children receive from their well to do parents on ChrlBtmas, was going to ruin
under a cherry tree which had been
bent to tbo ground by a rope swing
fastened to oue of Its flexible boughs.
The body of a mechanical speaklug
doll lay near by nnd the remains ot a
toy air rifle. After a protracted spree
Pole usually came home lndcu down
with such peace offerings to bis family
and conscience. Ills wife might go
without s needed gown and he a coal,
but hia children never without toys.
Seeing Abner at tbo fence, Mrs. Baker
came to the low door and stood bending her bead to look out.

"No; hain't time," smiled the old
man. "I Jest como over to see how

14 III Not So Good  u  Thins a. Some
Housel-ecpera Think,
"When 1 see men or women looking
r,for nothing but fnt on u fowl," said a
niarketman, "I don't envy them their
dinner. There ia n luyer of fut underneath the skin when poultry is unduly
fattened, and In the cooking this over-
bea*.ed fat saturates the ment, nud delicate stomachs have u hard tussle. This
ls why lots of people can't eat ducks
and geese nt all. These overfattened
fowls are in reality more expensive
nnd less easily digested, there being
much less lean meat in proportion to
the fat. Most of my customers are now
willing to pny what a good turkey la
worth, 'understanding tbe difference.
What is the difference? Why, there
nre u few rules thnt must be observed.
For at least six days before killing
barnyard fowls must be cooped, not
huddled, have a good, clean space
nnd be well fed on corn for ut least
live days. Then for twenty-four hours
before killing they should be fed on
skimmed milk or soft boiled rice, The
night beforo tbe killing the turkey
must hnve plenty of wnter, but no
food, which leaves the crop empty, the
intestines -clean, the dnrk ment quite
light, und gives u flavor lis different ns
possible from the offensive flavor thnt
Is likely to Impregnate tho common
fowl killed In the common wny. The
flesh of nil nnlmuls Is flavored by their
food. This accounts for the delicious
llayor of tho canvusbaek und redhead
ducks.. ISoth eat of the wild celery at
the water's edge, the former taking the
roots, the hitter the tops."

point of view she has something to
offer that will Interest the world. Un-

country by water during only four
months of the yeur. Dog sledges and
snowshoes ure the medium of travel
Ihe remainder of the year. There are
no roads.
The interior of Labrador has been
found to be tableland, about l.fiOO feet
nbove sen level, tbe foothills of which
iri'iieh down to the Atlantic const.
Piercing these foothills at intervals
along the Till) miles of const line urr
deep inlets, some of wblcb resemble
Norwegian llorils. Of these perhaps
(lie most picturesque Is Nochrach buy

llinn l.riuO feet high, Jut out Into the
wrier on either side, glistening ens-
oiuies tumble over their Bides, nnd mys-
.lifylitg sen caverns lure one to explore
them. Fifteen miles from the mouth ls
n waterfall of tremendous height. Its
altitude bus been variously estimated
nt from .00 to 000 feet. Tumbling over
the edge of the cliff In a cuscnelc, lt
takes this grout leap nnd then dashes
along on Its foamy wuy dowu several
hundred feet until lt drops Iuto the
buy. This Is by no menus the lurgest

Vancouver, B.C., June 4, 1904.
Mt. Plbasa-CT needs a better water
supply at once. New buildings are
being erected on every street, consequently the danger from fire is more
apparent. At present the pressue is too
weak iu case a fire got headway beforo
the firemen could reach it. A reservoir
on the highest elevation or a pumping
station at the foot of the hill is badly
needed, and we trust our Aldermen will
endeavor to secure one of the two
' suggested improvements.
His Worshir   Mayor McGuigan  is
' expected home soon from Ottawa, where
his presence was necessary in oonneo-
tion with the Stanley Park lease and
other civic  business.     The objections
■ to        the        Mayor's        visit       on
the part of members of the Council
• Mouday evening was regrettable,
- for both Messrs. Morton and Macpher-
1 son  are  conscientious  aldermen  who
have done much good for their respec
1 ttoe wards and have the good of the
' Oity at heart; however, we believe
1 they will yet see that the business conld
1 Dot- be delayed until the Railway
' Commission would come here.
His Worship Mayor McGuigan is as
much interested in Vancouver's good as
■ any one, more than many. He bas been
1 long identified with the City's growth
and its government. Contrary to an
-accusation on the part of an evening
1 daily, the Mayor is anything but a
' "figure head," he is a diplomat, one
■-. who realizes at once the obvious buo-
, cess oa futility of acting in opposition
, to other men. whose ability and good
1 sense' he   recognizes   and    concedes;
■ whether or not he lacks "back bone"
j it . is .Only necessary to recall
>'tbat he has carried his point in
i almost every thing, not by fighting and
, bluster but by intelligent. lulheronco to
\ what he believes to be right He hns
, been bravely indifferent to all manner
• "of attacks, in his endeavor to faithfully
perform his duty to the City, and like
. pll broad men he bas been too modest
, toboustof what he does. Many who
, voted against pur present Mayor declare
1 they will do all possible to secure his
1 ejection for a second term, if he will
, consent to stand for nomination.
We do not remember to nave heard
, ex-Mayor Neeland's trip to Ottawa last
. year objected to.

with a touch of bright orange, cherry
red or violet; lie de vln with bright
pink or gold, maroon with pale blue
are very' much In evidence this Spring.
An attempt Is being made to introduce more and more figured loulslnes,
taffetas and voiles. These come, however, In soft pastel tones or sombre-
tinted patterns, as if evlled, by Mt
gauze. The tiny pompadour (lowers,
cacherolre designs, fantastic arabesques, Lois Fuller stripes In myriad
shapes appear as lf fading away from
the soft grayish green or rose morte
The gray shades are beautiful, especially In the voile de sole and satin
messallno sort of loulslne, just as rich
In effect as liberty satin, though less
expensive. They will be much worn In
ceremonious costumes and elegant visiting gowns this Summer.
Pamela Is the romantic name given
to a tiny pin-point checked changeable
taffeta, the check being so minute that
it Is almost Invisible, giving, however,
a certain character to silk. This taffetas comes in poppy and white, blue
and white, mauve and white, etc, so
many delicate combinations of colors.
Coarse white Irish linen gowns embroidered In large open patterns will
be more than ever the fashion, and
coats of coarse ribbed white pique, richly embroidered In white or In green,
will be no end smart for wear with
Summer dresses, A short pique coat
with Directolre tails ls elegant, as ls a
Russian blouse In the same material.
A smart little wrap, also, Is a tiny
klmona, so short as to suggest a bolero,
and having sleeves that reach only to
the elbow. It ls made of brooaded or
embroidered silk and faced with liberty
satin. Fancy how pretty lt will look
worn with a lace garden party or cos
Ino gown. Although the sleeve Is loose
and cut In one with the shoulder, lt fits
tightly across the bust, back and under
the arms.
The same peculiar klmona sleeve ls
attempted even on a. gown. This model
Is In pale pink linen, wide celnture of
pink taffeta swathing the waist broadly, knotting with long ends at the back.
The klmona sleeve ends at .be elbow
with a hem of pink taffeta, which lies
over an under-sleeve of lace flounces.
The trimming about the bodice Is peculiar—four rings of white lace ruffles
are thrown about the shoulder and
arm-hole, passing tinder the arm and
about the bust, shoulder and shoulder
blades.   Upon the outside of the sleeve
there are four more rings centered with
a lace rosette, so that there ls a continuous series of laoe frills from the
neck to the elbow. Imagine the sloping, dainty, Japanese effect of this.
The capricious woman ls passing, unclaimed and unrestrained by the twentieth century. Her day was yesterday.
She flattered bar butterfly wings in the
sunshine ot yesteryear; but tbe wheel
of I line broke her, for the age of chivalry 1s past, and the era of companionship |b begun. Man no longer desires
that his love shall be "like an high-born
maiden In a palaoe tewer." He desires, Instead, that She share his amusements; be genuinely, and, therefore, intelligently interested In his occupations;
and woman, complaisant chameleon
that she ls, must adopt w|th the cos-
tumtli editable ipr th* open-air life of
man, a new feminine code, and adjust
ber mentality and her manners to'
changed 'conditions.
The creature of mood* and caprices
may reiVri for an hour, but her season
Is brief; ' It was not ta one of tbe airy,
fairy Lilians that Thackeray p_.ld a
great and beautiful tribute. It was to
the Venus of Melon. And it was at the
feat of that same type of-eternal womanhood, strong and calm and beautiful and tender, that Heine oast aside
his Iridescent mockeries and sobbed out
his broken heart

Then In life's goblet freely press
The leaves that give lt bitterness,
Nor prise th* colored waters less;
For In thy darkness and distress
New light and strength they give)
And he who has not learned to know
H«w false Its sparkling bubbles show,
How bitter are the drops of woe
With which Its brim may overflow,
Has net learned to live.
The prayer of Ajes was for light,
Through ail   that dark and desperate
The blackness of that noonday night,

To see his foeman's face.
Let our Increasing;, earnest prayer

Our portion of the weight of oars

The Best Way.
This world is a difficult world indeed,
And people are hard to suit.
And the man who plays on the violin
Is a bore to the man with a flute.
And I myself have often thought
How very much better 'twould be
If every one of the folks I know
Would only agree with me.
But slnoe they will not, then the very
best way
To make this world look bright
Is never to mind what people say,
But do what yon think is right.
'TIb the prettiest word
That was ever heard
From lover to his near one;
It means much more
Than fifty score
Of darling, pet and dear one.   >
To lover tall
Doth lt recall
His little lady slender;
Her cheeks ripe peach
His heart doth reach.
His heart both strong and tender.
And he her eye,
Like Summer sky,
Or be lt black and gleaming;
And be she small,
Or be she tall,
The word for her ls seeming.
Sweetheart, Sweetheart,
If no one part,
Be hers of beauty's power;
Her heart so true,
Beats sweet for you.
You crave no fairer power.
