The Electors of South Vancouver
should bear in mind that port of the
Municipality is in Vancouver District;
they have as much voice in primaries,
conventions, inoctingR.clc, iu Vancouver
as the oity people. As far as can be
learned the portion linked with the city
politically extends along the Cemetery
or North Arm road to the river. Along
Granville (or Centre) street sonth to
Eburno or near its vioinity. It is a little
puzzling to understand exactly bow the
boundary lines run,but each Elector will
not be slow to find out. All South Vancouver Conservatives within the vicinity of Mt. Pleasant are requested to

' "Et mol aussl," he murmured, llko
tho vast murmur of the sen, "I wnnt
to be ln that dance! Pardonncz messieurs. Mol, Jo vein danser, s'll vous
plait."
And when he had filled himself he
plunged out and rushed awny, wrought
up to the extreme fighting pitch of
temper. Dlable! If ho could but como
across that Lieutenant Bnrlow, how he
would smush him und mangle blm'l In
magnifying bis prowess with llie hns
of Imagination he swelled and pulled
us he lumbered along.
Tho firing Bounded ns If lt were between the fort and the river, but presently when one of Hamilton's cannon
spoke M. Housslllon snw (be yollow
rplko of flume from Its muzzle leap
directly toward the church, nnd he
thought-It best to inuUo n wide detour
to nvold going between the firing Unci.
Onco or twlco ho heard llie .vliino of
n stray bullet high overhead. Beforo
ho hnd gone very far he met a mun
hurrying toward the fort. It was
Cnptnln Francis Mnlsonvllle. one of
Hamilton'!, chief scouts, who hnd been
out on a reeonnoissanco and. cut off
from bis party by some of Clark's
forces, was trying to make his way to
the main gate of the Btocknde.
M. Roussillon knew Malsonvlllo nn ■
somewhat desperate character, n lender of Indian forays and h trader In
human sculps. Surely the fellow was
legitimate prey.
"Zlffl Diablc de gredln!" he snarled,
nnd leaping upon him choked liim to
tbo ground. "Jo vais vous scalper lin-
tnedlntement!"
Clark's   plan   of   approach   showed
masterly strategy.   Lieutenant Bailey,
with fourteen regulars, made n show
of  attack  on   the  east,   while   Mn.lor
Bowman led a company through the
town, on a lino near where Main street
ln Vlncennes ls now located, to a point
north of the stockade.   Chnrlevllle, a
brave Creole, who wa3 at the head of
somo  daring  fellows,   by  a   brilliant
dash got position under cover of n natural terrace at tho edge of the prairie
opposite the fort's southwestern angle.
Lieutenant Beverley, In whom the commander placed highest -Confidence, wan
sent to look for a supply of ammunition and to gather up nil the Frenchmen lu the town who wished to join In
the attack.  Onclc Jnzon and ten other
available men went with him.
They all made n great noise when
they felt that tha place was completely
Invested. Nor can we deny, much as
we would like to, tho Btrong desire for
vengeance which raised those shouting
voices and nerved those steady hearts
to do or die ln an undertaking which
certainly had a desperate look. Tho
thought was tremendously stimulating.
Beverley, with tho nld of Oncle Jnzon, was able to lead his little company
ns far as the church before the enemy
saw him. Hero a volley from the nearest angle of the stockade had to be answered, and pretty soon n cannon begnn to play upon the position.
"Wo klh do better some'rs else," wns
Oncle Jnzon's laconic remark, flung
back over his shoulder us he moved
briskly nway from the spot just swept
by a 0 pounder. Como Ibis yer wuy,
lieutennnt. I hyer some o' Ihe fellers
n-tnlkln' loud jes' beyant Legrnee'!
place. They ain't no sortV sense u-try-
ln' to hit anything n-shooliu' 111 the
dark nohow."
When thoy reached the thick of the
town there wns a strange stir In the
dusky Btreets. Men were slipping from
housu to house, arming themselves nnd
Joining their neighbors. Chirk hnd
lent nn order enrller In the evening
forbidding any street demonstration by
the inhabitants, but he might as well
have ordered the wind not to blow or
the river to stand still. Oncle Jazon
knew every man whose outlines ho
could seo or whose voice he heard. He
railed each one by name: _^
"_Iere, Roger, fall In! Come, LouE,
A'phonse, Victor, Octavo— venez let
here's the American army, come wllb
me!" His rapid French phrases leaped
forth as lf shot from n pistol,- and his
shrill voice, familiar to every ear In
Vlncennes, drew the Creole militiamen
to hiin, nnd soon .level-ley's company
had doubled Its numbers, while ut the
same time Its enthusiasm' uud nblllly
to mako n noise had Increased ln a fur
greater proportion. In accordance with
an order from Clark they now look po
sltion near Ihe northeast corner of the
stockade nnd began firing, although
lu the darkness thero was but 1 ittin opportunity for marksmanship.
Oncle .lazuli had found Citizen! Lo
grace and Rosseron, and throiiR'n them
Clurk's men were supplied wilh ammunition, of which they stood greatly
ln need, their powder having sot wet
during, tbelr long watery march. Hy
9 o'cldck the fort was completely
surrounded, and from overy direction
the riflemen and musketeers were
pouring In volley after volley. Bev-
erley with his men took the cover ef n
fence nnd some houses sixty yards
from the stockado. Hero to their surprise they found themselves below the ]
lino of Hamilton's cannon, which, bo- j
Ing plunted on the Becond floor of the :
fort, could not bo sumclently depressed j
to bear upon them. A woll directed j
musket fire, however, fell from the
loopholes of tho blockhouses, the bullets rattling merrily against the cover
behind which the attacking forces lay.
Clark, lu passing hurriedly from company to company around the line,
stopped for u little whilo when he
fouud Beverley.
"Have you plenty of ammunition."
was his flrst Inquiry.
"A B-igbly sieht more 'n we kin see
tb shoot with," spoke up Oncle Jazon.
"|t'ti a right smart o' dad burn foolishness to be wastlti' lt on nothln'; seems
like to me 'at we'd better set the daB.ed
fort nllrc an' smoke the skunks out!"
"Speak when yon are spoken to, my
iBiin." said tbe colonel u trlflo hotly,
and trying by a sharp scrutiny to make
I tli n out ln the gloom where he
crouched.
"Vcatreblflu!    I'm  not  askln'   you,
Leaping upon htm, he choked Mm to
the around.
Color."! Clark, n_r no other mnn. when
I shlll speak.    I talks whenever I gits
ready, nu' I shoots Jes' the same way.
.So yo'd better go on 'bout yer business
like n white mnn! Close up yer own
whopper Jawed mouth ef yo want anything shet up!"
"Oho, Is that you, Jazon? You're so
little I didn't know you! Certainly,
talk yonr whole under Jaw oh" for r
I cure," Clark replied, assuming n Jocose tone. Then, turning again to Beverley:   "Keep   up   the   firing  and   the
noise. The fort will be ours ln the
morning."
"What's the use of waiting till morning?" Beverley demanded with impudence. "Wo can tear that stockade to
pieces with our hands In hnlf nn hour."
"I don't think so, lieutenant It ls
better to piny for the sure thing. Keep
up the racket, and be ready for 'em 11
they rush out. We must not full to
capture the hnlr buyer general."
, Beverley submitted to Clark's plan
with what patience he could, nnd nil
night long flred shot for shot with the
best riflemen lu bis squad. ' It was n
fatiguing performance, with nppnrent-
ly littlo result beyond forcing the gaii*
son now and again to close the embrasures, thus periodically silencing
the million. Toward the close of tho
night n relaxation showed Itself In the
shouting nnd filing nil round the line.
Beverley's men, especially the Creoles,
held out bravely ln the mntter of noise,
but oven they Hugged nt length, their
volatility simmering down to desultory
bubbling and half sleepy chattering
and chaffing.
Beverley leaned upon a rude fence
und for a time neglected to reload Ids
hot rille. Of course he wns thinking of
Alice—he really could not think In any
other direction; but it gave him a shock
and n Btnrt when ho presently heard
her mime mentioned hy a Utile Frenchman near him on the left.
"Thero 'II never be another such a
girl In Post Vlncennes its Alloc Roussil-
lon," t.io fellow said In the soft Creole
patois. "And to think of ber being shot
like a dog!"
"And by n man who calls himself a
governor, too," said- another. "Ah, as
for myself, I'm In favor of burning him
alive when we capture him. That's
me."
"Et mol nussl," chimed In n third
voice. "That poor girl must be avenged. Tbe mnn who shot her must die.
Holy Virgin, but lf Gnspard Housslllon
were only hero!"
"But he ls here. I saw him just after
dark. He was In great fighting temper,
that terrible man. Ouf, but I should
not like to be Colonel Hamilton and
fall In the way of that Gaspurd Uoua*
sllloul"
"Mot'bleii! I should say not. You
tatty leave me out of u chance like Ihut.
I shouldn't mind seeing (.uspurd bundle
tho governor though. Ah, thut would
bo too good I He'd pay him up for
shooting Mile. Alice."
Beverley could scarcely hold himself
erect by the fence. The smoky, foggy
landscape swam round hlin heavy and
strange. Ho uttered a groan, which
brought Oucle Jnzon to his side lu n
hurry.
"Qu' nvcz-vous? What's the matter?"
the old man demanded with quick sympathy. "Uev they hit ye? Lieutenant,
nlr ye hurt much?"
Beverley did not henr the old man's
words, did not feel his kindly touch.
"Alice, Alice!" he murmured. "Dead,
dead!"
"Yu-as," drawled Onele Jazon. "I
licani about lt soon ns I got inter town.
It's n sorry thing, n mighty sorry thing.
But niehby I won't do a little soniepln'
Io that"—
Beverley straightened himself and
lifted his gun, forgetting that ho had
not reloaded It slnco firing last. He
leveled it nt the fort and touched the
I rigger. Simultaneously with his
movement an embrasure opened nnd a
cannon flashed, ils ronr flanked on either side by a crackling of British muskets. Some bullet! struck tho fence
and flung splinters Into Onclc Jnzon's
face. A cannon ball knocked n ridgepole from' the roof of a house hni'd by
nnd sent it whirling through the air.
"Ventrebleu—ct nprcs? What next?
Better knock a feller's eyes out!" the
old man cried. "I ain't a-dolu' nothln'
to ye!"
He capered around rubbing his
leathery face after the manner of a
scalded monkey. Beverley was struck
ln the breast b.v n flattened and spent
bull that glanced from a fence picket.
The shock caused him to stagger und
drop his gun, hut ho quickly picked it
up and turned to his couipthilon.
"Are you hurt, Oncle Jazon?" ho Inquired.    "Aro you hurt?"
"Not a bit; Jes' skcert nios.' Into a
duck fit. Thought a cannon ball had
knocked my whole dang fnce down
my thronl! Nothln' but a handful o'
splinters  In  my  poo'ty   count'nanco,
makln' ray head feel like a porc'pino.
But I sort o' thought I heard somepin'
give you a dlff."
"Something did hit me." said Beverley, laying a blind on bis breast, "hut
I don't think It was a bullet. They
seem to bn getting our rango nt last.
Tell the men to keep well under cover.
They must not expose themselves mill]
wo nre ready to charge."
The shock hud brought him back to
bis duty ns n leader of his little coin-
paiiy, nnd with the funeral bell of nil
bis life's happiness tolling ln his agonized heart he turned afresh to directing tho lire upon the blockhouse.
About this time a runner cine from
Clark witb an order to cease thin:; and
let a returning pnrty of British ncouts
under Captain Lamothe re-enter the
fort unharmed; A strange order it
seemed to both officers nnd men, but
it was Implicitly obeyed. Clark's genius
hero made another line strategic (lush.
lie knew thut unless he let the scouts
go back Into the stockado they would
escape by running nwuy, nnd might
possibly organize an nrmy of Indians
wilh which to succor Ilumllton. But
if they were permitted to go Inside
they could bo captured wilh the rest
of the garrison.   Henco his order.
A few minutes passed In dead silence. Then Captain Luinotho und his
parly marched closo by where Beverley's squad was lying concealed. It
was a difficult laak to restrain the Creoles, for some of them hated Lamothe.
uncle Jazon squirmed liko a snake
while tliey Hied pant all unaware ihut
an enemy lurked so near. When they
reached the fort, ladders were put
down for them nnd they began to
clamber over the wall, crowding nnd
pushing ono nnother in wild hnste.
Onele Jnzon could hold In no longer.
"Yu! Yh! Yn!" he yelled. "Look
out!   The ladder Is'a-fullln' wi' ye!"
Then all the lurking crowd shouted
ns one man, nnd. suro enough, down
came n ladder—men und all ln a crashing heap.
"Silence! Silence!" Beverley commanded, but he could not check the
wild jeering nnd laughing, while the
bruised and frightened scouts hastily
erected their ladder again, fairly tumbling over one another In their haste
to ascend, nnd bo cleared the wall, fulling into the stockade to Join the garrison.
"Ventrebleu!" shrieked Oncle Jazon.
"They've gone to bed, but we'll wake
'em up nt the crack o' day nn' give
'em n brenkfas' o' hot lead!"
•Now the lighting was resumed with
redoubled spirit and noise, uud when
morning enme, affording sufficient light
to bring out the bend sights on th*
Kentucky rifles, the matchless murks-
men In Clark's band forced the British
to closo the embrasures nnd entirely
cense trying to use their cannon, but
llie fight with small nrmn went merrily
on until the middle of the forenoon.
Meantime (.uspurd Roussillon had
lied Francis Muisonvillc's bund3 fast
and hard w<-li the strap of bis bullet
pouch.
"Now, I'll scalp you," he snid In a
rumbling tone terrible to hear. And
vi lth his words out came his hunting
knife from Us sheath.
"Oh, have mercy, my dear M. Itoussillon!" cried tbe panting captive.
I "Have mercy!"
"Mercy! Y'es, like your colonel's;
that's what you'll get. Y'ou stand by
that forbaii, that scelerat, that bandit,
and help him. Oh, yes, you'll get mercy! Yes, the same mercy that he
showed to ray poor little Alice! Your
scalp, monsieur, lf you please. A small
matter; It won't hurt much!"
"But. for tho sake of old friendship,
Gnspnrd, for the sako"—
"/Iff!    Poor little Alice!"
"But I swear to yon that I"—
"Tout do memo, monsieur, jo vols
Tons sei'ilper nialntenant."
Iu fact, he bad taken off s pnrt of
Malsonvllle's scalp wben n party of
soldiers, among whom wns Mnlsouvllle's brother, u brave fellow und loyal to the American cause, were attracted by his cries und came to hi3
lescue.
M. Kousslilon struggled savagely, Insisting upon completing liis cruel performance, but be was at last overpowered, partly by brute force and partly
hy the pleading of Maisonville's brother, nnd made to desi.st. The big mnn
wept with rage when he saw the
bleeding prisoner protected. "Eh blent
I'll keep what I've got," he roared,
"nud I'll take the rest of it uext
time."
He shook the tuft of hnir nt Malsou-
ville and glared like a mad bull.
Two or three other members of Lamoille's band were captured about the
same time by some of the French militiamen, and Clark when on his round
cheering nnd directing his forces discovered thnt (hose prisoners were being
used ns shields. Some young Creoles,
gay with drink and (lie stimulating effect of light, hnd bound Hie poor fellows nnd were firing from behind them.
Of course tho commander promptly put
un end to this cruelty, but thoy considered It exquisite fun while It lusted.
It wns In broad daylight, and they
kntw that the English In tho fort
conld see what they were doing.
"It's shameful to treat prisoners ln
this way," said Clark. "I will not permit lt. Shoot the next mail that offers
to do such n thing."
Ono of the creole youths, a handsome, swarthy Admls ln buckskin,
tossed his shapely head with a debonair smile and said;
"To l"» sure, moil i-olonel. But what
have they bail doinir to us? We have
amused them all tv!: ter. It's but fair
that they should give us a littlo fun
now."
Chirk shrugged hls.brond shoulders
and passed on. He understood perfectly what the peoplo of Vlncennes had
suffered under Huml.ton's brutal administration.
At 0 o'clock an order was passed to
cease Ilring, nnd a Hag of truce was
seen going from Clark's headquarter*
to the fort. It was n peremptory demand for unconditional surrender.
Hamilton refused, and fighting was
fiercely resumed from behind rudo
breastworks meantime erected. Every
loophole nnd opening of whntovcr sort
wns the focus Inlo which the unerring
backwoods rifles sent their deadly bullet:.. Men began to full In the fort, and
every moment Hnmllton expected nn
assault ln force on nil sides of the
stockade. This, If successful, would
mean Inevitable niussacre. Clark had
warned him of the terrible consequences of holding out until the worst
should come. "For." said he In his note
to the governor, "If I am obliged lo
storm,  you   may   depend   upon  such
treatment as ls justly du* to a rmr-
derer."
Historians have wondered why Hamilton became so excited and acted so
strangely after receiving the note. Th!
phrase "Justly due to a murderer" ls
the key to tho myBtery. When he read
It his heart sank nnd a terrible fear
seized him. "Justly due to a murderer!" Ah, that calm, white, beautiful
girlish face, dead In the moonlight,
with the wlsp of shining hair across
It! Such treatment as ls Justly due
to a murderer!" Cold drops of sweat
broke out on his forehead and a shiver
wcut through his body. __
During tbe truce Clark's weary yet
still enthusiastic besiegers enjoyed a
good breakfast prepared for them by
the loyal dame! of Vlncennce. Little
A<irlenne   Boureler   was   one  of   th!
"What's the matlcrt   Hcv they hit yet"
handmaidens of the occasion. She
brought to Beverley's squad a basket,
nlmost as largo as herself, heaped high
with roasted duck and warm wheaten
bread, whilo nnother glii boro two
huge jugs of coffee, fragrant and
steaming hot. The men cheered them
lustily nnd complimented them without reserve, so that before their service was over their faces were glowing
with delight.
And yet Adrlenne's heart was uneasy
and full of longing to hear something
of Reno de Honville. Surely some one
of her friends must know something
about blm. Ah, thero was Oncle Jazon!
Doubtless ho could tell her all that
she wanted to know. She lingered
after the food was distributed and
shyly Inquired.
"Hain't seed the scamp," said Oncle
Jnzon, only ho used tho patois most
familiar to tho girl's ear. "Killed an'
iicelped long ugo, I reckon."
His mouth wns so full that he spoke
mumblinEly and with utmost difficulty.
Nor did he gluuce at Adrlcnne, whose
face took on as great pallor hs her
brown complexion could show.
Iieverley nte but little of the food.
He sat apart on a piece of timber that
projected from the rough breastwork
and gar* himself ever to inilnita ml*
cry of spirit, which was trebled when
ho took Alice's locket from his bosom
only to discover that the bullet which
struck blm bad almost entirely destroyed tho fuce of tho miniature.
He gripped the dented nnd twisted
case and guzed at lt with the stare of
a blind man. His heart almost ceased
to boat and his breath had the rustling
sound we hear when a strong man dies
of a sudden wound. Somehow the defacement of the portrait was taken by
his soul as the final touch of fate, signifying that Alice was forever and
completely obliterated from bis life.
Ho felt a blur pass over his mind. Ho
tried ln vain to recall the face and
form so dear to him; he tried to
imagine her voice; but the whole universe wns a vast hollow silence. For
a long while he was cold, staring, rigid.
Then the Inevitable collapse came, and
he wept as only a strong man can who
ls hurt to death, yet cannot die
Adrieiine approached him, thinking
to speak to him nbout Rene, but he did
not notice her, and sho went her way,
leaving beside him a liberal supply of
food.
CHAPTER XI.
ALICE'S 1-I.AO.
GOVERNOR HAMILTON received tho note sent him by Colonel Clark and replied to lt with
curt dignity, but his heart was
quaking. As a soldier he was true to
tho military tradition, and nothing
could have Induced him to surrender
his command with dishonor.
"Lieutenant Governor Hamilton," ho
wrote to Clark, "begs leave to acquaint
Colonel Clark that he and his garrison
are uot disposed to be awed Into any
action unworthy of British subjects."
"Very brave words," said Helm when
Hamilton read the note to him, "but
you'll sing a milder tune before many
minutes or you and your whole garrison will perish tn a bloody heap.
Listen to thoso wild yells! Clark has
enough men to ont you all up for breakfast. You'd better be reasonable and
prudent. It's not bravery to court mai-
sacre."
Hnmllton turned nway without a
word and sent the message, but Helm
saw tbat he was excited and could be
still further wrought up.
"You are playing Into the hand! of
your bitterest enemies, the frog eater!," he went on. "These crooles, over
whom you've held a hot poker all winter, are crazy to be turned loose upon
you, and you kuow that they've got
good cause to feel like giving you ths
extreme penalty. They'll give it to
you without a flinch if they get the
chance.   You've dono enough."
Hamilton whirled about and glared
ferociously.
"Helm, what do you mean?" ho demanded ln a voice as hollow as lt wai
full of desperate passion.
The genial captain laughed ai lf b*
had heard a good joke.
"You won't catch any fiih lf yon
swear, and you look blasphemous," he
said with tke lightness of humor characteristic of him nt all times. "You'd
better suy a prayer or two. Just reflect a moment upon the awful sin!
you have committed and"—
A crash of coalescing volley! from
every direction broke off his levity.
Clark was sending his response to
Hamilton'! lofty note. Tbo guns of
freedom rang out a prophecy of triumph, and the hissing bullets clucked
sharply as they entered tho solid logs
of the walls or whisked through an
aperture nnd bowled over a mun. The
British iuuskeeters returned tho firo
as best tbey could, with n courage und
a stubborn coolness which Helm openly admired, although he could not bide
his satisfaction whenever one of them
was disabled.
"Lamothe and his men are refusing
to obey orders," snid Farnswortb a little later, hasUly approaching Hamilton, his face flushed and a gleam of
hot anger ln his eyes. "They're In a
nasty mood. I can do nothing with
them.   They have not flred a shot"
"Mutiny?" Hamilton demanded.
"Not Just that. They say they do
not wish to Are on their kinsmen nnd
friends. They are all French, you
know, and they see their cousins, brothers, uncles and old acquaintances out
there ln Clark's rabble. I can do nothing with them."
"Shoot the scoundrels, then!"
"It will be a toss up which of us
will come out on top lf we try that.
Besides, lf we begin n light Inside, the
Americans will muko short work of
us."
"Well, what nro we to do, then?"
"Oh, fight, that's all." said Farnsworlh apathetically, turning to a smnll
loopholo uud leveling n field glass'
through It. "We might make a rush
from the gates nnd stninpedo them,"
he presently added. Then ho uttered
an exelumutlon of grent surprise.
"Tliere's Lloutenuut Boverley out
there," he exclaimed.
"You'ro mistaken; you're excited,"
Hamilton hnlf sneorlngly remnrketl,
yet not without n shade of iineuslnesi
In his expression.   "Y'ou forget, sir."
"Look for yourself. It's easily settled." And Fnrnsworth proffered the
glass.   "He's there, to n certainty, sir."
"1 saw Beverley an hour ngo," suid
Helm. "I knew ull tho time thut he'd
be on hand."
It was n white He. Captain Helm
was as much surprised as his captors
at what he heard, but he could not resist the temptation to be annoying.
Hamilton looked ns Farnswortb directed, nud, sure enough, there wus
the young Virginian lieutenant standing on a barricade, his but off, cheering his men • with a superb show of
zeal. Not a hair of his head was missing, so far ns the glass could, be relied
upon to show.
Oucle Jazon's quick old eyes saw tho
gleam of the telescope tube ln tho loophole.
"I never could shoot much," he muttered, and then a littlo bullet sped
with absolute accuracy from his dls-
reoutable looking rifia and shattered
the object lens Just as Hamilton movea
to withdraw the glass, uttering aa
ejaculation of intense excitement
"Such devils of inurksmeu!" said he,
and his face was haggard. "That Infernal Indian lied."
"I could huve told you all tho timo
that tho scalp Long Hnlr brought to
you was not Beverley's," snid Helm
indifferently. "I recognized Lieutenant Barlow's hnlr ns soon us I saw lt."
This was another piece of offhand
romance. Helm did not dream that
he was accidentally sketching a horrible truth.
"Barlow's!" exclaimed Farnswortb.
"Yes, Barlow's, no mistake"—
Two more men reeled from a porthole, tho blood spinning fnr out of
their wounds. Indeed, through every
aperture In tho walls the bullets were
now humming like mnd hornets.
"Close thut porthole!" stormed Hamilton. Then turning to Farnsworlh he
added: "We cannot endure this long.
Shut up every place large enough for
a bullet to get through. Go all around,
givo strict orders to nil. See that the
men do not foolishly expose themselves. Those ruffians out there have
located every crack."
His glimpse of Beverley and the
sinister remark of Helm hnd completely unmanned blm before his men
fell. Now it rushed upon him that If
be would escape the wrath of the maddened Creoles nnd the vengeance of
Alice's lover he must quickly throw
himself upon the mercy of Clark. It
was his only hope. He chafed Inwardly, but bore himself with stern
coolness. Ho presently sought Farnswortb, pulled bim nsido nnd suggested
that something must bo done to prevent an assault and a massacre. The
sounds outside seemed to forebode a
gathering for a desperate rush, and la
bis heart he felt ull the terrors of awful anticipation.
"We ure completely nt their mercy;
that ls plain," he snid, shrugging his
shoulders nnd gazing at the wounded
men writhing In their agony. "Whut
do you suggest?"
Cnptnln Fnrnsworth wns a shrewd
officer. He recollected thut Philip Do-
Jeun, justice of Detroit, was on hi!
way down the Wabash from that post
nud probably neur nt hand with u flotilla of men nnd supplies. Why not
ask for a few days of truce? It could
do no harm and If agreed to might bs
their salvation. Hamilton Jumped at
the thought and forthwith drew up a
note which be sent out with a whit!
flag. Never before in all his military
career had ho been so comforted hy a
sudden cessation of lighting. His soul
would grovel in spite of him, Allco'!
fcold fnce now had Beverley's bosldo It
In his Held of Inner vision—a double
ussiiranco of Impending doom, It seemed to llllll,
Thero was short deluy In Ihc arrival
of Colonel Clark's reply, hastily scrawled on a bit of soiled paper. The request
for u truce wns flatly refused, but the
uoto closed thus:
"If Mr. Hamilton Is Desirous of a
Confcrunce with- Col. Clurk, ho will
meet hlin at the Church with Cnpt.n.
Helms."
The spelling was not very good, and
thero was a redundancy of capital ^letters, yet Hamilton understood lt all,
nnd lt was very difficult for him to
conceal his haste to attend tho proposed conference. But he wns afraid
to go to the church—the thought chined
him. He could not face Father Beret,
who would probably be there. And
what lf there should bo evidences of
the funeral? Wbat If ?— He shuddered
and tried to break away from tho
vision ln his tortured bruin.
He sent a proposition to Clark ta
meet hlin on the esplunndc before tho
main gate of the fort, but Clark declined, Insisting upon the church. And
thither ho at last consented to go. It
wus nn Immense brace to his spirit to
hnve Helm beside hlin during thnt
walk, which, although but eighty yards
ln extent, seemed to blm n mutter of
leagues. Ou the wuy ho had to pass
near tho new position vaken up hy
Beverley and his men. It was n flno
test of nerve  when  the  lieutennnt'!
eyes met those of the governor. Neither man permitted the slightest change
of countenance to betray his feelings.
In fact, Beverley's face was as rigid as
marble; he could not have changed It.
Father Beret was Indeed present at
the church, as Hamilton had dreaded,
and the two duelists gave each other a
rnpler-llke eye thrust. Neither spoke,
however, nud Clark Immediately demanded a settlement of the mntter In
hand. He was brusque and imperious
to a degree, apparently rather anxious
to repel every peaceful advance.
lt was a laconic Interview, crisp as
autumn lee and bitter as gall berries.
Colonel Clark hud no respect whatever
for Hamilton, to whom he had applied
the Imperishable ndjectlve "hnlr buyer
general." On the other hand, Governor Hamilton, wbo felt keenly the disgrace of having to equalize himself officially and discuss terms of surrender
with a rough backwoodsman, could uot
conceal his contempt of Clark.
Tho fiver men of history, Hamilton,
Helm, Hay, Clark and Bowman, were
not distinguished diplomats. They
went at their work rather after the
hammer nnd tongs fashion. Clark
bluntly demnnded unconditional surrender. Hamilton refused. Thoy argued the matter. Helm put In his our;
trying to soften the Bttuntlon, as was
his custom on all occasions, and received from Clark a stinging reprimand, with tho reminder thnt he wns
nothing but a prisoner on parole and
had no voice at ull lu settling the tonus
of surrender.
"I release him, sir," snld Hn • Illon.
"He ls no longer n prisoner. I nm quite
willing to have Captain Helm Join
freely in our conference."
"And I refuse to permit his acceptance of your favor," responded Clark.
"Captain Helm, you will return wltb
Mr. Hnmllton to the fort nnd remain
his cuptlvo until I free you by for**.
Meantime ligld. your tongue.**
Father Beret, suave looking nnd quiet, occupied himself at the little altar,
apparently altogether Indifferent to
whnt was being said, but be lost not a
word of the talk.
"Qui habet aures audlendl, audlat,"
he inwardly repeated, smiling blandly.
"Gnudete ln Ilia die, ct cxultnte."
Hamilton rose to go; deep Hues.of
worry creased his face. But when the
party had passed outside he suddenly
turned upon Clark nnd snld:
"Why do you demand Impossible
terms of mc?"
"I will tell you, sir," was the stern
answer ln a tone In which there wus
no mercy or compromise. "I would
rather have you refuse. I desire nothing so much as an excuse to wreak full
and bloody vengeance on every man
In that fort who hns engaged in the
business of employing lavage! to scalp
brave, patriotic men and defenseless
women and children. The cries of the
widows and tho fatherless on our frontiers require the blood of the Indian
partisans nt my hands. If you choose
to risk the massacre of your garrison
to save those despicable redhunded
partisans, have your pleasure. What
you bave dono you know better than
1 do. I have a duty to perform. You
may be able to soften Its nature. I may
tnko It Into my head to send for somo
of our bereaved women to witness my
terrible work nnd sec thut It ls well
done If you Insist upon the worst."
Major Hay, who was Hamilton's Indian agent, now, with some difficulty
clearing his throat, spoke up.
"Pray, sir," said he, "who ls lt thnt
you cull Indian partisans?"
"Sir," replied Clark, seeing that his
words had gone solidly home, "I tnke
Major Hay to be one of the principals."
This seemed to strike Hny with
deadly force. Clark's report says that
he was "pule and trembling, scarcely
nble to stiind," nnd thnt "Hamilton
blushed, and, I observed, wns much affected nt his behavior." Doubtless lf
the doughty American commander hud
known more nbout the governor's feelings just then he would hnve added
thut un awful fear, even grentcr thnn
the Indlun agent's, did more than anything else to congest the veins In his
fnce.
The parties separated without reaching an agreement, but the end had
come. The terror ln Hamilton's soul
was doubled by a wild scene enacted
under the walls of his fort, n scene
which, having no proper plnee In this
story, strong ns Its historical interest
unquestionably ls, must be but outlined. A party of Indians returning
from a scalping expedition in Kentucky and along the Ohio wns raptured on the outskirts of the town by
some of Clnrk's men, wbo proceeded
to kill and scnlp tbem within full view
of tho belengiiered gurlison, after
wliich their mangled bodies were flung
Into the river.
If the British commander needed further wine of dread to fill his cup wllh-
ul It wns furnished hy nn ostcntntlous
marshaling of the American forces for
n general ussniilt. His spirit broke completely, so thnt It looked like n godsend to liim when Chirk finally offered
i terms of honoi'iible surrender, the con-
! summation of which wns to bo postponed until the following morning. Ho
accepted promptly, appending to tho
nrllcles of ciipltulntlon the following
reasons for his action! "The remoteness from succor, tho state nnd quantity of provisions, etc.; unanimity of officers and men In Its expediency, the
honorable terms allowed nnd, lastly,
the confidence In n generous enemy."
Confidence In n generous enemy! Abject four of tho vengeunee just wreaked upon his savage emissaries would
have been the true statement. Beverley rend the paper when Clark sent for
blm. but ho could not Join In the extravagant delight of his fellow officers
nnd their brave men. What did nil
this victory menu to him? Hnmllton to
be treated ns nn honorable prisoner of
wnr, permitted to strut forth from tho
fort with bis sword nt his side, his
hend up—the scalp buyer, the murderer of Alice! Whnt was patriotism to
th! crushed henrt of n lover? Even lf
his vision lind been nble to pierce the
future nnd realize tho splendor of Anglo-Saxon civilization which wns to follow that little triumph at Vlncennes,
whnt pleasure could It hnve afforded
him? Alice, Alice, only Alice; no other
thought had Influence save the recurring surge of desire for vengeance upon
her murderer.
And yet that night Beverley slept
nnd so forgot his despair fur ninny
hours, even dreamed n pleasant dream
of homo, where his childhood was
spent; of the stately old house Oil the
breezy    hilltop   overlooking   a   sunny
plantation, with a liitie river luptlng
"Such devils of -marksmc-t!"
and shimmering through It. His mother's dear arms were around hlin, her
loving breath Btirrcd his hair, and his
stalwart, grav headed father sat on the
veranda comfortably smoking his pipe,
while away In the wide fields the negroes snng at the plow nnd the hoe.
Sweeter and sweeter grew tho Bcene,
Bofter the air, tenderer the blending
sounds of the water murmur, lenf rustle, bird song and slave song until hand
In hand he wandered with Alice In
greening groves where the nlr wus
trembling with the ccstusy of spring.
A young officer awoke blm with an
order from Clark to go on duty at once
with Captains Worlhington nnd Williams, who, under Colonel Clark himself, were to take possession of the fort.
Mechanically he obeyed. The sun wns^
far up, shining between clouds of n _
leaden, watery hue, by the time everything was ready for the Important ceremony Beside the miitn gnte of the
stockade two companies of patriots under Bowman nnd McCurty were drawn
up as guards, while the British garrison filed out and was taken In charge.
This bit of forninllty ended, Governor,
Hamilton, attended by some of his officers, went back Into the fort and the
gate wus closed.
Clark now gave orders that preparations be made for hauling down tho
British flag and hoisting the young
banner of liberty ln its pluco, when everything should he ready for a salute ,
of thirteen guns from tlio captured battery.
Helm's round face was beaming.
Plainly It showed that bis happiness
wns supreme. He dared not sny anything, however, for Clark was now^ll I
sternness nnd forninllty. It woultruo
dnngerous to take any liberties, but ho i
could smile and roil his quid of tobacco
from cheek to cheek.
Hunilltou and Fnrnsworth, the latter
slightly wounded In the left nrm, which '
wns bandaged, stood together some-
whnt npart from their fellow officers
while preliminary steps for celebrating
their defeat and rapture were ln progress. They looked forlorn enough to^
have excited deep sympathy under fairer conditions.
Outside the fort, the Creoles were beginning a noise of jubilation. Tho rumor of what was going to he done had
passed from niouth to mouth until every soul In the town knew nud thrilled
with expectancy. Men, women and
children came swarming to see the
slight and to hear at close range the
crash of the cannon. They Bbouted, In |
a scattering wny at first; then the tumult grew swiftly to a solid rolling
tide thnt seemed beyond all comparison with the population of Vlncennes. '
Ilumllton heard It and trembled Inwardly, afraid lest the mob should '
prove too strong for the guard.
Ono leonine voice roared distinctly,
high above the noise. It was a sound
familiar to all the Creoles, that bellow-
lug shout of Gaspard Knussilion's, lie -^
wns ronmlng around the stockade, buying been turned buck by the gunrd
when he tried to puss through tbe main
gutc.
"They shut me out!" be bellowed furiously. "I nm Gnspard Roussillon, and
they shut me out, me! Zlff! Me volcl!
Je vnls entrer liniuedlatement, mol!"
Ho nttracted but little attention,
however. The people and the soldiery
were all too excited by the special Interest of the occasion and too busy
with making a racket of thclrown for
nny Individual, even Ihe great Roussillon, to gain their eyes or cars. He In

Just before him.
"Zlff!" ho ejaculated, stepping Inlo

OIL ON THE WATER.

A few gallons of oil cast upon stormy

force. That this is the case has long
been known. Tbeophylactcs, the Byzantine historian of tho sixth century,

oil mini the sea?" and answered lt to
tho effect that as the wind is a subtle

One of the Worst Cases on   Record  Cured
Through the Use of Dr. Williams' l'ink
Pills.
St Vitus dance is a nervous disease
chiefly alllicting children. There nro
a number of signs by which it mny
bo detected such as a twiching of
the muscles of the face, shaky hands,
or a jerky motion of tho arms, a
trembling or a dragging of the legs,
irritability and restlessness. St.
Vitus dance is caused by disordered
nerves and blood—that is why it is
always cured by Dr. Williams' l'ink
Pills. Tho pills fill the veins with
pure, rich red blood, which in turn
soothes and braces tho nerves, making the sufferer well. Mrs. i_ul.nian,
Poucher's Mills, Out., tells how Br.
Williams' Pink Pills cured her daughter, Louise. "I do not think it possible," snys Mrs Luftnlon, "thnt itny-
ono could be ndllcted with a moro
severe form of St. Vitus dance than
that which attacked my daughter.
Her arms und lugs would twich nnd
jerk, her face wus drawn, and finally
her loft side became numb us 1 hough
paralyzed. Her speech became thick
and indistinct and she could neither
stand still or sit down. Two doctors attended her but gave her no
b*.nofit. Tho last doctor who all ended her told mo sho would never get
better. It was at this discouraging
timo wo decided to givo her Dr. Williams' Pink. Pills. After taking two
boxes wo could soo nn improvement;
she could sleep better nnd the .spasms
were loss severe. From that on she
steadily grew bettpr, and after using
eight or ten boxes she was as strong
and healthy a girl ns you will find
anywhere, and she hns not had the
least symptom ol tho trouble since."
Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills nro tho
surest curo for St Vitus danco, hysteria, neuralgia, nervous exhaustion, paralysis, and nil tho nervous
troublos of men, women and children.

Our ancestors, to uvoid the dilliculty
of large numbers, used to keep accounts by cutting notches in n stick,
called a tally, and after twenty such
notches they cut off tlie tally, which
thus became a "score." These were
used in England for keeping the exchequer accounts, even to the beginning of the nineteenth century. A
cricket score was once spokvii of as so
many notches, nnd the rind of pork Is
scored. The word is first used iu a

Francis II. Nichols in his journey
through the Chinese province of Shen-
sl saw n temple where stone animals
wero worshiped. Ho says: "In rows
of heavily barred brick cages nre stone
Images of iiulmals. They nre all Ufa

Among them nre elephauts, tigers nnd
monkeys, whose sculptors must huvo

They ure worshiped ns saciea «„,i „r.

from csenping nnd running nwny from
their worshipers that tho cages hav*

where Ush were fonged or set at liberty, lu Its workings the system of
fonging animals hns very much the effect of n humane society on the western sido of the world. On tbe theory
that nny of the brute ercntlon may be
the dwelling place of tho soul of a former human being, lumo and sick nul-
nials become the care of tlio priests.
In some of the larger temples special
provision is made for caring for Bick
cats nnd dogs. To fong an animal ot
any kind Is considered an act of supreme vlrlue. To obtain good luck a
pious Chinaman will sometimes purchase n llvo tlsh nnd hnve a priest fong

pond reserved for the purpose near the

BY HEADACHES.
Could Not Eat op Work-Powders and Quick Cures
of no Avail-Lasting Cure Obtained From
DR.   CHASE'S    NERVE   FOOD.
This case of Mr. Barber well illustrates the way in which Dr. Chaae'e
Nervo Food curea headaches.
Ho tried the so-called "quick curea"
first, but without obtaining benefit.
It la a well known fact that such
remedies when they do bring temporary relief do so with a tremendous
waste of norvo force and consequent
injury to tho system.
Dr. Chase's Nervo Food cures by
enriching tho blood, vitalizing tho
nerves and building up the system.
Headaches, as well as all other symptoms of an exhausted system, disappear beforo its influence. Its cures
lasting because it removes the causo
of tho trouble.
Mr. 0. Barber, Simeon, Ont., writes:
"Dr. Chaso's Nervo Food is a splendid medicine. I was troubled lor a
long tlm* with headaches, wliich
would como on about once a week
with such violence that I could not
oat or do my work. I tried headache powders and quick curea, which
did no good.
"About eight months ngo I took
six boxes of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,
and I have not boon troubled with
headache since. It made a thorough
and lasting cure."
Mra. James Clancy, 714 Water
street, Pcterboro', Out., states:—"I
hnvo used four boxes of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food, and found them an excellent medicine. I was troubled
moro or less for nintecn years with
scvoro headaches, which made me
useless as far aa accomplishing my
work was concerned.
"The Nerve Food scorned to build
ma up generally, and so made a
thorough cure ol my old troublo. I
would not think of being without Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food in the house,
and would strongly recommend anyone suffering as I did to give it a
trial. It succeeded in my cose after
a great  many remedies had failed."
Dr. Chases Nervo Food 50 cents a
box, six boxes for $2.50, at all
dealers, or Edmanson, Bates & Co.,
Toronto. To protect you against

If love makes daughters nudutiful
sometimes the Grand Passion has au ennobling and elevating effect. Mr. Henry
C. Me-uke of Carsouville, Ohio, was in
every respect au estimable person. The
fairies at his birth had giveu him all
gifts but one. He had health,wealth aud
beauty, aud ouly lacked sanity. Whilst
iu this hopeless condition he met a
beautiful maideu. Instantly a great
burst of passion welled up in his heart,
aud strangely enough this highly praiseworthy emotion cleaved his intellect.
From that moment Henry C. Menke
wns sane. Love which drives so many
people mad had in this case proved a
homeopathic cure for insanity. Unfortunately the unhappy man is going
to marry the girl M«"'«»s° Is a great
Uiaiiiusioner, and wheu he comes home
and finds Mrs. Menke with her hair in
curling pins, nud that there is only cold
mutton for dinner, the chauces are that
this great passion will die down, and he
will lapse hack into insanity.
Or thero is the chance that he will de
cliue to see auy fault iu his wife, nnd
here ia another domestic danger. For a
lady hns just secured a divorce because
her husband wns too affectionate. She
pleaded that every request she made to
him was at once granted without any
at preseut one rather inclines to the coat
wearing heresy, and if chilly weather
prevails we shall really have to become
arch-heretics and wear overcoats. The
only fault that a friendly critic can find
with the delightful Lebanonites sect is
that there nre doubts as to whether the
movement will stop with the removal of
coats. One or two early Quakers made
personal protests agaiust the.blasphem
mous practice of wearing pants, and
oue is almost dubious as to how far
ecstatic enthusiasm may carry men.

THE MARRIAGE QUESTION.
The professor who announced that"lov«
»nd romance die oul With the sound of the
WL-ddiriK-bclls," was the first to start the
ball rolling. Jt would seem a brave woman
who marries with tliis echo in her earn, yet
we have not heard that there were fewer
marriages during the year. There are un*
happy married lives, but a large preccntage
of these unhappy homes are due to the illness of the wife, mother or daughter.
During a long period-of practice, Doctor
Pierce found that a prescription made up
j entirely of roots and herbs, without the use
VJof alcohol, cured ninety-eight per cent, of
sucli cases. After using this remedy for
many years in hit. private practice he put
it up iu a form that can be had at any store
where medicines are handled.
Backed up by over a thiid of a century of
remarkable and uniform cures, a record
such as no other remedy for the diseases
ond weaknesses * ecnliar to women ever
attained, the proprietors and makers Of Dr.
Pierce's P'avorite Prescriptioti now feel
fully warranted iu offering to pay $500 ia
legal money of the United States, for any
case of Leucorrhea, Pemale Weakness, Prolapsus, or Falling of Womb which they cannot cure. All they ask is a fair aud reasonable trial of their means of cure.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures

There is something iu the lady's com-
plaiut Next to the people who always
disagree with you the most objectionable people are those who always agree
with yon. An occasional difference
gives the necessary salt to existence. If
this lady's husband hnd only read the
Silly Season Correnapoud.uce on
•'Should Wives Bo Flogged," in an
Euglish daily, he might huve kept his
happy home together.
Pel haps the suggestion that wives
i. In ni Id be flogged is uu extreme one,
bnt it shows u reaction against the
tendency to make loo much of women.

Well, why shouldn't he if the youug
ladies liko it. Perhaps, however, Mr.
Urpiihui't is married. That, of course,
makes a great difference. SUU, if the
clergy wish to fill their cliurenes, and
shirk the uecosBory embracing, ull they
havo to do is to delegate thut branch of
the work to young and active lay depu-

Obituary.
The fnneral of Mrs. Muir, wife of Mr.
J. 8. Muir, occurred ou Tuesday afternoon from the family residence on
Tenth aveuue. Mrs. Muir had been iu
poor health for a longtime. The fuueral
services were conducted by Elder A.
Steers of the Advent Christian Church
of Mt. Pleasant. A husband and three
children are left to mourn her loss.
Happily the Cranks of the States furnish us with some needed light relief.
A uew sect which bas begun at Lebanon, near Chicago, has a beautiful simple
creed. They believe in the great truth
of Shirt Sleeves. The shirt sleeved
minister in the pulpit tells an audience
which has dispensed with coats, that
warm as coat wearers may be in this
world, they will be still warmer in the
next. A month since this creed would
have fouud numerous proselytes here;
MillicelltMaraget Huntley, aged one
year six months uud seven days, died
July lllth of tuberculous meningitis at
the home of Mr. and Mrs W. T. Ward,
4(18 Sixth aveuue, Mt. Pleasant. The
littlo oue whs the daughter of the popular Lonilnu Comedian nt the ftriuco of
Wales Theatre, Mr. G. P. Huntley and
his wife formerly Miss Eva Kelly a
well-known actress of Now York aud
London. In August 190!) Mr. and MrB.
Huntley with their little duughtir nud
Nurse White, stiu-tod for a tour of the
United States nud Australia. Iu New
York, acting upon medical counsel, Mr.
and Mrs Huntley left their babies iu
charge of Nurse White—a professional
nurse—to bring them to Vancouver,
where with Mrs. Ward of Mt. Pleasant,
a sister of Nurse White, they remained foui mouths wheu the littlo girl so
beautiful and attractive was taken ill,
and uotwitbslnnding every care and
effort to save her passed awny July 16th.
Nurse White was almost prostrated with
grief and much sympathy was felt for
her in the great responsibility she was
forced to benr. A memorial service was
held by Rev. G. H. Wilson, Rector of
St Michael's Church at the home of Mr.
and Mrs Ward, and a profusion of
floral tributes were sent by friends who
sorrowed for the parents so far awny,
nud the faithful nurse left
to brenk the sad tidings to the
parents. The remains in remaikablo
state of preservation lie at Armstrong &
Edwnrdes' Undertaking Parlors, awaiting orders for shipment to Englaud for
which country Mr. and Mrs. Hrfiitley
are now eu route from Australia,
