"What is the mutter';'' he asked,
"Why do you annoy this lady?"
"This ain't no lady. She is a confidence queen," said the detective roughly, "llon't you come butting In or
we'll have to run you in too."
"There's some mistake here," Clayton said quietly. "I presume you are
making the arrest on information?"
The detective drew a printed slip
from his pocket and passed it to Clayton. It recited that l.oa Cogswell,
alias Pfeffer, alias Hay. alias Goodrich,
was wanted In Chicago for swindling.
She was supposed to be making her
escape to London or Paris. The description iu n general way fitted the
girl, but Clayton saw that s.ouie mistake had been made, He had been
looking at the girl all the afternoon,
nnd he would have sworn that she was
no criminal. That her distress was real
was apparent.
"This is ali wrong," be said decidedly. ''That description would lit hundreds of women who have passed
through this station today. If.you nr
rest Miss Ormonde, you will be sue,!
for false Imprisonment. I know her
to be the person she says she is."
"One of her pals, eh?" sneered the
detective. "I guess we'd better take
you too."
Clayton banded the man a card.
"If you want to mess things up still
further," he said quietly, "go ahead."
The officer looked at the card. "Got
any letters to back this up?" he de
man,led. Clayton produced sever.'.!
from his coat. The detective touched
his bat.
"I guess we made n mistake," be
said uncertainly. "Sorry we troubled

said promptly, "YVuir double hail so

you are she."
Thej bid risen and were standing
on the platform of the Pullman, she
put her baud in his. v
"Perhaps I am," she said softly.
"Thank you so much for your kindness, and goodby."
She had slipped down the steps and
wa- lost In the crowd before Clayton
had recovered from the audacity of
that last speech. He knew that it
could nol be true, yet for a moment the
suggestion shocked him, lie hurried
down the platform after her. but the
boats were just leaving their Blips as
he passed through the gate, and she
was lost.
For weeks Clayton puzzled over that
speech. He knew very well that she
was not the swindler, yet why did she
choose to create that doubt? The more
he reasoned the more puzzled he became. Only one fact stood unchanged.
He loved her.   That was certain.
Business culled him to London, and
there, away from his friends, he came
to his decision. When his business affairs were straightened out he would
go straight to Detroit and see If he
could locate the Ormondes.
But he did not have to wait that long.
He took the bout at Southampton, and
at Cherbourg the passengers from Far-
Is came on board. Clayton, leaning
over the rail on the upper deck, saw a
figure r.scendlnx the gangway that
caused his heart to beat faster.
It could be none other than Mile.
Alias. He hurried down to the lower
deck, but could not find her. and.
though the passenger list gave her
name, for two days he looked for her
In vain.
Then, lute In the evening, n wan little
figure was helped out on deck and established in a steamer chair. Clayton
hurried toward her.
"I have been looking for you for two
days." he said when greetings had been
exchanged. "Where have you concealed yourself?"
"Iu my berth," she explained, "f
have been most miserably seasick.
Why-did you search for me?"   .
"I wanted t" ask you tn become my
wife." he said directly.
"Not  knowing  whether I  11111  a eo:i-

"Knowing in my heart that you ar".

to raise such a doubt?"

"Are you content?" he asked as ;'������

probably say, if he answered accord-

answer.

The Globe sfiys, "The Toronto Junction ghosl Is still a mystery. If the
town had not adhered to local option
the mystery might easily be solved."
Premier McBride has our sincere
sympathy. An attack of grippe is
bad enough: but to have the days of
convalescence darkened by the worry
o reconciling the conflicting claims
of a lot of hungry office seekers is a
heaping of misfortune ujKin misfortune  which  almost  calls for tears.

Royal  Templar   Sees Things.
To th<' Editor of the Daily N'ews:
Dear Sir,���In going down Columbia
street tonight I saw a number of
Chinamen being' taken up to the lockup, having been (aught gambling.
Now would the police treal a white
man so at our Christmas time? A
saloon keeper can sell the liquor on
Sunday night, and the police cannot
see it, although men arc getting
drunk under  their noses.

A Novel Industry Pursued In a Rem&U
Part of China.
At the far fide of China, where
it almost penetratc-5 the secret of
Tibet and is itself very much of a
secret to the rest of the world, the
natives conduct an industry which is
novel in many respects and involves
a pilgrimage of great length every
year.    It is the raising of insects
that makes wax.  The wax is used in
many  parts   of  China  for  making
temple images and candles covered
with odd raised characters.
The female insects are about the
size and shape of shoe buttons.   The
males are like miniature beets in
shape and a quarter of an inch long.
The insects have a peculiar characteristic.    They will not secrete the
wax in their birthplaces.   So-about
May 1 of each year the wily Chinese
take them from the branches of the
trees   where  they   were   born  and
porters carry them many miles away
across   the   mountains   and   rivers.
For hundreds of miles they are carried t" a part of the country where
grows the flowering ash upon which
they delight t" feed and to deposit
the wax.    There ar" thousands of
t: ese porters in the province of Sze-
chuen.
It is a strange procession which
strings out from the Chienchang
valley in May. Each porti r is dressed in a rain emit of straw, which
makes him look very much like a
sheaf of grain, lie carries two bamboo baskets fastened together with
curved sticks. The sticks fit ever
his shoulders, one basket being before and the other behind. His burden consists of gourds containing
the insects. The females are almost
ready to deposit their eggs.    There

L^H   It is nightfall when  the porter
sets out on his journey of -100 miles.
He carries in one hand a lantern,
for he must do all of his traveling
by night.   The heat of the noonday
sun might cause the females to lay
their eggs prematurely.    Along the
rude roads he swings through the
night, his lantern flickering as  it
gwavs to and fro.    Now he passes
through a silent village or city without stopping.   The gates have been
left open for his passage in order
that there may be no  delay.    At
hast over his right shoulder the horizon begins to grow light.   Thc birds
are tumbling out of their nests with
i a few sleepy notes.   As be drags his
weary feet along, the hilltop gradually brightens into a  flaming red
and the birds are singing.   Now he
seeks   out   a   cool,   shady   retreat,
where the basket may be protected
from the heat and he himself may
curl up his tired limbs until evening.   So the porter travels his lonely way night, after night until he
reaches his destination.
His journey ended he immediately goes to his master and delivers
his burden of gourds.   Al once the
leafy bags are tied on the branches
of the ash tree-, whi h i re < nly five
or sis feet high.   A bluni needle is
pushed through the leaves in each
bag in order that the in ei ts may
find their way out,   Once they have
left their case they creep rapidly
, up to the leaves of the trees and begin to feed.    In a couple of weeks
they scatter along the branches, and
after  a   short   lime   the   eggs   are
hatched and the war. is being deposited on the twigs.    By Sept,  1
thc trees look as if covered with
snow.    It is a snow, however, not
amenable to the temperatures which
wipe    oul    ordinary    snow.    The
branches tire then cut off ai d their
quarter of an inch of pure white
coating is scraped off.   The i ax is

presume the  time  consumed   by  the

would   be   at. least    one    week,   this
would mean that shippers on the Port

to load twice or three limes in a week,
would   be   able   to   load   cars   turned
over 10 the C.  P. R.  only once in a
