A  Pathetic  Incident of   His   Franco-
Prussian War.
Bismsrck Is always thoucht of ns
the Iron Chancellor, who cemented
the German states into one empire
with the blood of Gorman soldier*
shed in three prest war*. But a
French army surgeon. Dr. Czernicke.
in n volume of reminiscences from
which Forest and Stresm quotes, most
unexpectedly presents him as a man
who felt and deplored all the horrors
of wnr. The surgeon met the statesman nt Rezonville during the Franco-
Prussian war nr 1970.
"You are taking part, sir. in a terrible war," lichen Bismarck to the
young man. "What a beginning for
your career! Whut awful sights
What suffering I *
"It is not you or thes.! poor muti-
lated^fellows that 1 should like to see
here," Bismarck continued, earnestly,
"but your senators and deputies
They would then see whst war is."
This idea that the wnr had been
forced upon the two nations by politicians wns cvrr with Bismarck, according to Dr. Czernicke. He referred
to it nunin on goin? over the battle
field white, seated on some straw and
propped up against n pillar nl the
church, was one ol the Krench soldiers, a very young man.
He was terribly wounded. A shell,
striking him like the lash of a whip,
had ciirri.d uway both his eyes and
tlle bridgi ot his nose, leaving the
skull bare, The wound was covered
with a dressing. He lay there, calm,
silent, motlonkis, in dumb resignation,
Bismarck eiooped in front of him
anil asked .ho surgeon nbout the case.
"TherjB is war   for  you, Messieurs I
the Senators aiul Deputies)" he snid!
bitterly! Then, turning tn one of his
suite, "Please bring me some wine
uud u fins.-."
He tilled the glass lo the brim and
took a sin. Then, gently*tapping the
poor fellow, "My friend, will you not
drink something:-"
Tlle woUhded soldier roused himself.
Bending, Bismarck very tenderly nnd
slowly pave him the wine and, ri.-inp
again, almost solemnly drunk what
was left in 111-- glass.
"What is jour name, my boy, and
where do you come from?"
"itoasignnl, from Brittany."
"I am B'.Jmnrek, my comrade, and
I am very prou I In have drunk out
of the same glass wilh a bruvc man
like you."
Stretching Ills hand over the horribly mutilated head, Bismarck gave
mute benediction and passed on.

Unique Situation in Remark.ble War
���Constantinople  Is Optimistic
of Speedy  Peace.
, ^��?d0?: Dec' 5--Ashmead Bart
lett, In hls despatch from ConstantI
nople, reveals a situation unique In
the warfare of all ages. Commenting
upon the conditions of the armistice
which are coming out only a bit ai
a time, he says:
"The problem of feeding Adrian
ople day by day has been settled by a
very simple and practicable expedient
which does credit to the common
sense of thc delegates and Is an earn
estness of their evident desire tc
come to terms as soon as possible.
"The Turkish army at Catalja will
feed the Bulgarian army In front ot
their lines and the Bulgarian army besieging Adrlanople will dally hand
over to the beleagured garrison ��dml
ar quantities of provisions, amount
Ing to one day's rations for even
man, woman and child In the place.
"This will save the Bulgarians the
Usk of transporting food from Kirk
Killsseh to the Catalja lines, and thf
Turks from having to send up fooj
from Constantinople to Adrianople
This waB Is full of dramatic anc
unique situations and surejy this spec
tacle of two armies, which ten days
ago were engaged In a life and death
struggle, now mutually feeding om
another, is without precedent in war
Men seldom keep up a quarrel aftei
they bave eaten one another's bread
and salt, ar.d this arrangement is i
happy a::gury for peace.
"I presume some similar arrange
ment will be arrived at in regard to
Skutart.
"The garrisons of Adrlanople and
Skutarl have the right to make good
any damage to the defences so long a.
they do not break freab ground, and
the besiegers for their part can alsc
strengthen Intrenchments and make
good any damage.
"Preliminary negotiations for peace
are being conducted at Catalja at nu..
rate until the outlines of an under
standing have been arrived at, but 1
am inclined to think that the poor
quarters and the severe weather will
speedily bring about a much desired
consummation and allow the dele
gates to discuss the minor details In
more comfortable surruondlngB. Al
though lt Is denied that actual termr
for a final settlement have been d's
cussed by the delegates and although
in the armistice signed yesterday
nothing Ib mentioned of the lines or
which the discuBBion will proceed. 1
have every reason to. believe that pri
vately among themselves the delegates are already agreed on the broad
principles of the understanding.

PLEA FOR COLLEGE ROOM.
Not  Necessary  That  It  Should  Bs a

It has for a long time seemed necessary for the college girl's room-to be a
-..runs between a gyuiniiHlum aud a junk
shop. This Is altogether a fatal Idea,
not only from au artistic point of view,
but from the point of.view of tbe woik
to be done nt college, play lo lie played
at college and health lo be inulumiued
at college. It stands to reason that In
a room which Is Insanely furnished
concentration on any tblug���piny ct
work-is bound to be more difficult to
attain, and from tbls difficulty of attainment a strain naturally ensues.
Surely lf there is anything to bs
avoided at college It Is strain of'any
kind whatever. Thc sane room, tben. Is
one answer to the question of how to
overcome some of tbe nervous tension
Ibat seems to cause breakdowns und
the relinquishing of college courses.
The sane room does not mean a colorless, prim or cold room. On the contrary. It means Just the opposite. It
means a room that is hospitable, warm
in coloring (not hot) and consistent In
design���a room, In other words, as conducive to rest nnd tranquillity ns It Is

to the*most enjoyable type of camaraderie, room purt ies and tbe Inevitable

UNWARRANTED INTERFERENCE.
Had the Kraser ceased to flow the
surprise occasioned thereby could not
bave been exceeded by that caused
yesterday when, like a bolt trom the
-blac. a notification was received from
tbe provincial government stating thai
a plebiscite upon the proposed lease
-of tbe arena must be taken at the
���-ooiainj; civic elections so that the
Irishes of the people may be ascertain
ed forsoothl
When    the    Westminster     arena
scheme was  first  mooted  there  was
eiot tie slightest idea entertained  In
the mind cf any thinking citizen thai
so pretentious a building was  to  be
utilized merely once in the year and-]
ror about a week only at that.   Rather
it was understood that the place was
to be used for entertainments, sportu j
aad the like, in brief to fiH a real, all- j
���fee-year-round need tn the life of the j
city.
Vy these means it was understood !
that   instead   of  having    a     building :
whicb had cost them some $.10,000 ami j
���was bringing in no income, used for '
3* few days in tlie year for horse show
purposes, the  ratepayers  would have j
some entertainment provided for thein .
jn a place worthy of their city, and. al j
the same time, would have tho picas- ]
ure of knowing that the proceeds tr,
the  cily   for   the   rent   of   the   arena
would  be  contributing  to  the  repayment of the outlay.
Consequently when the eity was ap
proai.hi d by a company of Westminster men who wished to lease the
building for ice rink purposes thoy
were assured of the councils' acquiescence, provided the city's interetSS
were satisfactorily safeguarded.
We believe that in point of trust
worthiness and Intelligence the present mayor and council will compare
'favorably with any public body on
.the mainland or thc island, and tlia'
therefore the arrangements made with
this company are satisfactory lo
������Westminster. The city is not able to
.undertake a scheme of this nature It
-self aad it is only natural that a com-
fmny which is investing some $30,000
io the undertaking should require a
leaae for a term of years.
The building as it stands, today belongs to Westminster and Its cost is j
briur, met by Westminster people.    It i
ia sot being paid for by the govern j
meat, neither does it belong to them '
Ffcs location  upon  land  held  in trust j
by  the  city  is  the  sole  cause  thai
. the gnvernment's assent has now been .
sought.    Surely   we  have  a   right  U.
��Jo as we  will  with our own  and  a
right to expect that  the government ;
milt  not   put  obstacles   la   our   path. !
especially after the professions of sup '���
port cm the part of members of th3
, provincial executive.
Tbe public knows how delegation ar I
ter delegation hns gone to Victoria
and has been assured hy ministers
and premier alike of support. Now.
when everything Is ready to oe j
brought to a successful fruition, there
comes the mandate (>f delay.
The people want the rink, the coun
��-.il and company are agreed, everything was going well, Why this
change of front? ls tliere a nigger
in the woodpile'? lr so. let hint ooni
oot.
Apart ircm prol - lonal iii okay, the
rink has man) advantages, it will
provide om young pi pie with an out
irt for legitimate pleasure and there
toy keep than) oul ol mischief   it wil|
brieg and keep a certain amount of
trade In the city, il will further cs
tahliah un on thfl map, and above all
the  income  derived  from   the  torn
months In the year during which the
company  will uie It, will pay off th
interval on the loan raised lor its ere::
tion, thus saving the ratepayers' poe
bets.
What is to he done?
If the present di iti rminatlon of the
.government cannot be changed |i
means thai all these advantages win
be deferred and thai i: ere will be no
liockey season In Wi tminster thl.-

people u iii say.
Addams, Dr. Lena Sadler, and other
prominent Chicago women. Their
protest is against reckless and meaningless extravagance in the distribution of costly gifts. They would have
Christmas not so much an occasion
for the exchange of expensive gifts as
an opportunity to communicate expressions of personal esteem and
friendship,     i
To children, to the poor and needy,
aud within reasonable limits, to relatives and friends, the giving of pres
ents Is a kindly and worthy custom.
But when Christmas means physical
suffering from overwork to procure
money for the purchase of presents;
when it means shattered nerves from
worry over inability to buy expensive
articles; when tt means plunging into
useless debt���there is both sense and
reason in a protest against such, a perversion of the Christmas spirit
The ethics of present-giving are not
under discussion. It Is the' distortion
of the dseire to spread joy and gladness in honor of Christ's,nativity Into the dross of pure commercialism
that attracts criticism. Something
like a standard of present-giving at
Christmas is established in every circle, and copformity to it often calls
for individual sacrifice not at all in
keeping with the true spirit of tit*
season.
What ls given as tho exptossion of
affection, or esteem, or in token of
fellowship, Is well given. When they
carry no sense of obligation and entail no undue embarrassment to de
stroy the free-will valu of the offering, Judicious gifts a. e a source of
ioy to both the ona who receives and
the one who gives.

TRAGEOCS OF LONDON.
Where Woman Are Found to Work For
Half a Cent an Hour.
Ther^ are women in London, declares W. B. Northrop, author pi
Wealth tnd Want, who work for a
farthing (half a cent) an hour. A Gov-
ernment report mentions the case of
one Woman who abandoned her work.
She found it easier to starve. ' The
tragedy of poverty in London is of
the grny, somber, unrelieved kind
that, onoe seen, drives the iron of
pity through the very soul, leaving the
memory seared forever.

Paris, Dec. 5.���That France in tho

clearly in the important address mad ���

The French premier spoke plainly
on the European situation when he
said to the committee;

PREHISTORIC MAW.
Ths Dlscovsry In East Anglla Arousss
Qrtst Interest.
In the recently published proceedings of the Prehistoric Society of East
Anglia some interesting details sre
given of tho human skeleton whicii
has been (ound in a glacial deposit at
Ipswich. Careful examination made
before disinterment showed clearly
tliat there were no signs of previous
digging, the clay above the bones appearing to be in every way the same
as that which extended for pome distance on either side. There was not
the slightest mixing ot the soils, nor
was any grave furniture discovered.
Immediately underneath the bones ��
pronounced calcareous band was present, and this undoubtedly would
have been dissolved, it a grave had
been dug through the clay, by th-:
rain water percolating through thi!
loose material.
The remarkable cranial cast, formed
of the sandy loam in which the bones
rested, was so perfect that the part
of Uie frontal lobe ol the brain connected with speecli was clearly
marked on it, and this points to the
fact that the material composing it
must have been introduced while in
a semi-fluid state. The antiquity of
the skeleton must, therefore, be very
great, for it is, indeed, difficult to
imagine that clay and sand have been
in such a condition since the time
when a grave would liave heen dug.
Speaking before the society some
time ago, Mr. .1. Reid Moir said:
"Let us1 supjiose that this man.
whose remains we'have found, wa*
wandering over this sandy land surface, and was overcome with the cold.
If this were the case ho would lie
down, curl himscll up ior warmth,
and eventually get covered by th"
Band as it was blown hy the wind.
This supposition is borne out by the
fact of the contracted position in
whicli the body was found, and also.
as the climate was fast degenerating
into glacial cond.tions, it is certain
very low temperatures were present.
Perhaps the most surprising thing
connected with tlie Ipswich discover.,
is the fact that this mau, who is ap
parently so much more ancient than
the Neanderthal men, should bo ol
modern type, while the latter are very
primitive. Undoubtedly East Anglian skeleton at least sliows that modern
juan ha�� existed since <* much esr'.is'
epoch than hud been previously imagined. During one ol the warm inter
ludes of tlie Great Ice Period he had
alresdy been evolved. Corroborative
evidence of the gre^ ayo of them
bones has still more recently been
provided by the discovery nl a tusk
and other remains of an elephant st a
spot some 11 miles away. The beast
was probably a contemporary of the
man, and its resting place was als.
on the surface nf the sand, which now
lies 11 feet below tbe ground level. .

A Musical Love Story.
Of all the romantic proposals which
have led to marriage between celebri
ties of the day, surely that of Mr
Keniierley-Kumford to. Mme. Clara
Butt, whom he married in 1900, is ope
of the most striking. In the days
when "Miss" prefixed the name ol
Clara Butt, these two singers were appearing at Queen's Hall, London, in
an old English duet called "The Keys
of Heaven," wherein a devout lover'
offers the lady of his heart the keys'
ef heaven if she will but walk and
talk with him. The damsel is obdurate, so a cti*fb and six is offered.
Uftn a black silk gown, which only
moves her to derision. Then:
lf I give you the heart of my heart.
And we are married till death do us
part,
Madame, will you walk and talk with
me?
"Kenncr\ey-Rumford." ssys Mr.
Harry Burgess in "My Musical Pilgrimage," "had asked the most momentous question of his life, to wbich
an answer had not been given. As
tbey stood beiore the audience, Clara
Butt put sucb emphasis into her reply
of Ves, 1 will walk aud talk with
you,' thst there oould be do mistaking
har meaning; snd it is doubtful If
Kenner.ey-Kiimlord knows whether be
walked ofl the platform or was carried
ofl by invisible angels."
Ate 888.000 Tee Much.
The  sdviee   which   Sydney   Smith
5sve to Lord Murray on the subject ol
let was probably sound. "If you
wish for' anything like hsppiness in
the fifth set of life," he wrote, "eat
and drink one-hall of what yon could
eat and,.#lnk. Did I ever tell you
my oslculations .shout esting and
drinking? ' Having sscerteined the
weight of whet 1 could live upon V.
as to preserve health and strength,
and what I did live upon, I. found
that between ten and seventy yesrs
ot age I bad eaten and drunk forty
(our horse-wagon loads ot meat and
drink more than would have preserved
me in life and health; The value ol
this mass of nourishment I consider
to be worth 886,000 sterling, lt oc
curred to me that I must, by my vora
city, have starved to death lullr 100
persons. This is a frightful calculation, but irtsslstibly true."

MRS. RENT PAYER!
How can you help your husband to save more money
than he is now able to do?
Sit down at your desk and figure it out. How long
have you been paying rent ? How long do you expect to pay rent ?
Suppose you have been paying rent for 5 years���
$25 monthly, $300 a year or $1500 in 5 years.   Do
you know that we will build you a home for that
amount and let you pay for it with what you are
now paying out as rent.    What have you to show
for last year's rent ?   Can you say that you are
$300 nearer owning your own home ?   If not, make
a start towards that end today.   Come to the office
and talk it over; tell us the size of a house you
need. Let us show you the 4, 5 and 6 roomed houses
we have already built for people in just your circumstances; people who cannot make big cash payments
on a house, and have been paying rent.
Tell us just how you would like to have your house
built and we will start to build it, and all you have
to pay is $25. Come to the office at once and let
us help you to get ahead of the game.
Every lot is high and dry 40 x 157 feet to lane.
Streets graded and sidewalks laid, electric light, city
water and telephone service. Right on the 12th
Street car line and only two blocks above the Orphanage. All lots are cleared and graded. Twelve
houses are already built and eight more are started.
If you do not select your lot at once the better lots
will be all gone. Remember you can secure a house
and lot with just what you are now paying as rent.
Come to the office today and talk it over. We are
open till 9 o'clock.
SPECIAL NOTICE
For those who are unable to see these houses on week days we
might say that agents will be on the subdivision, corner of 12th
Street and 12th Avenue (2 blocks above Orphanage) on Sunday

CANADA LAUDED BY
BANQUET SPEAKERS
Canadian Club Affair In  London  Remarkable for speeches Which
Left Out Naval Question.
London, Dec. 5.���At the banquet ol
the Canadian Club tonight the
speeches were, ln a sense, remarkable for what the speakers did not Bay;
there waB not a single direct or open
reference made to the naval question
although the subject waa doubtles*
uppermost In the minds of moBt ot
those present. Mr. McLean Brown
presided, and his Immediate con
freres were Rt. Hon. W. H. Long. Sir
Robert Perks, Hoik Dr. Payne, Hon
H. MacKenzie, Hon. A. I,. Sifton, Barl
Stanhope. Sir J. P. Whitney, Sir T. P.
Whittaker and Mr. Hamar Greenwood.
Hearty cheers rewarded Mr. Mc
lean's endeavor to get away from the
stereotyped Btyle In proposing the
toast of the Dominion. Premier Whit
ney, ln responding, eulogized the Dukt
of Connaught's tenure of office, and
said the dominating hope In the Cana
dian mind was that His Rcyal High
ness would be Induced to prolong lib
stay in Canada. He also said that Sli
John Macdonald's prediction that the
Dominions would become the outlying
���nixll'ary forces for the protection ol
the ritlsh BCrown wns being fulfilled
There wns nothing of the Jingo splrll
In Canada, but the people were confident in their own country.
Hon. A. L. Sifton declared he found
the feeling formerly apparent in Brit
ain, In that Canada would separatp
from the Empire, now entirely dlsap
peared.
Rt. Hon. Walter Ix>ng mado no aliti
sion to the political bearing of his re
cent journev to the Dominion, but ex
nressed   profound   gratitude   for   the
Javlsh   hosnitalitv  shown   him.      Thr
! Canadian, he said, were   Imperialist'
i In the tnip sense, and determined tr
j take their full sham of the EnplreV
, burden and make certain that the his
��� tory of the British Eninire was even
J more glorious in the future.
Tying Up Ihe Dog.
Having bought a dog tbat he admiral, a maa of obstinate will undertook to buy a dog collar. Tbe dog Iind
a neck nearly as big as his hend, and
the denier advised the mnu to buy two
collars.
"What for?" said the mnn. "lie's
got only one neck, so I guess he enn get
along with only one collar, cnu't he?"
"Maybe so." said the denier. So the
mnn went nway leading the dog by bis
new collar nnd chain.
In less tuan a week be brought tbe
dog back,
"I'm afraid I can't keep him," he
*nlil. "He's too obstropuloua. I enn't
keep him tied up. His neck Is the
biggest part of bim. and he Is as
strong ns nn ox. Therefore It Is a
olnrh fur hlm to slip his collar off."
"That wns why I wanted you to tnke
two collars." snld the denier. "Put
both on nnd fasten the chain to tlie
hnek collar, nnd he can tug all nicht
without getting loose, ne mny commit suicide, hot he won't get loose."���
New York Times.
Where ths Fish Bite.
A traveling salesman while In Chicago wns Invited to n party given b.v a
friend. During supper stories were
called for. nml he told the following:
Two Irishmen were fishing one dny tn
a Inke. After nearly all day one of
them threw Ills line fnr out nnd. pulling In, he got n strike. After Ashing
awhile he anally Innded a fine flsh.
"Ob." snld he. "Mike, this is the only
place In the Inke to flsh: we will Just
mark IL" And lie cut n notch In the
side of tbe boat.
They all laughed, and the story telling wns resumed
There was one Englishman who kept
laughing nil the lime duiing the rest of
the evening until time to go home,
when he came lip tn the trnvellng snles-
mnn nnd snld: "I witn Just thinking of
the story yon told It wns such a
funny story. I don't believe 1 ever
heard such a funny story before. Just
think. If they hud got the wrong liont
they would lmve never known wbere

THE GIRL'S ROOM.
Hew the Business Women May Pit Up
a Den.
Bine Is alwaya lovely for a girl's
room and combined with cheesecloth
ia pretty and clean looking. Stencil
materials are reasonable, wblle tbe
work amounts to almost nothing;.
If blue and wblte bave been cbosen
for tbe color acheme buy soma Japanese toweling, cut It Into lengths, hem It
and use it for a few psnela sgalnst tbe
walls. Its bliieblrdy and flowers against
the white background wlll be attractive wltb tbe curtains. It can be purchased for a few cents a yard.
If one has a couch Instead of a bed
there ls tbe Japanese crape tbat could
be used as a covering for it and a few
eitra pillows, wblcb would go well
wltb the rest of tbe room.
Of course If a girl enjoys sewing and
It rests her. as it does some persons,
sbe can make a great many attractive
things for ber room besides tbe sewing
for herself which must Iw done. But
for many It Is hard sfter tbe day's
work to accomplish anything beyond
the mending snd dnrnlng nhil renovating which are necessary If one la to remain trim and nent. Yet the time and
thought would lie well spent for it
gives n very real sense of Independence
and happiness to have an attractive
room of ber own.

THE INSPECTOR'S
ROMANCE
]'��� Its Ending and the Event :
That Led Up to It.
| By CLAUDE PAMARES,
m-H-H-llllllliuw
PAGE  SEVEN
Once every two months-now s day
er two earlier and now a dsy or two
Uter-Inspector Cranforth bad entered
tbe different postofflces on bis route
and cbecked up aud straightened out
affairs. Tbere were postmasters who
bad seen blm grow old and gray sines
tils appointment Tbey bsd always
found blm a pleasant spoken aud a just
msn. but all stood in swe of him. In
sio department of tbe publlc service Is
Cncle Sam more particular tban lu the
postal. The cash must bslance to a
cent wltb the poxtmnsters, and sny
man or woman wbo attempts to plsy
tricks with his letters are certain to be
pursued wltb relentless energy.
Inspector Cranforth was generally re
Carded as a flint hearted man. It was
understood tbat be was ao old bachelor
end bad never known what love was
He accepted no excuses from postmasters and indulged In no flirtations while
raveling. At fifty years of sge he bad
got to be pnrt of the route, and no one
^fcDcw him for Just what he was. Out-
ikle of his officialism he bsd a heart as
arm as any man's, and one reasou-
nd perhaps tbe main one���wby he bad
ot married wns the fact that he had
Iways maintained a home for a moth
ir and a crippled sister. His salary
lould do no more. One day a windfall
ame lo the shape of a legacy, and If
he Inspector bad dreams of matrimony
nd a fireside all bis own no one could
Hume him.
Tbose who looked upon the man as
Hint hearted did not know tbe Ins snd
���outs of the esse at tbe Dover post
-offlce.   An old soldier bsd been postmaster there for years.   When he died
4ils widow took his place.    When she
died   her  daughter,   Mary,   who   had
known the Inspector since >her baby
d.  was left  motherless,  fatherless
ed almost penniless.    It was tbe In
pector who paid a part of the under
aker's bill; It was tbe Inspector wbo
ad   Dncle   Hilly   Smltb  appointed:   It
was the Inspector wbo got llary Williams a clerkship thst practically made
ber postmistress and financially  lode
pendeut
Even the girl did not know the extent of his kindness. When he found
tilmself asking why he did It be found
���himself replying thnt In two or three
years more be hoped to be lu a posi
tion to marry. At present his feelings
toward the girl were merely paternal
Wbat they might be In the future be
Wouldn't discuss wltb himself.
It was said tbnt Inspector Cranforth
took more time for Inspection at tbs
Dover postuttice than un.vwhere else.
Some of the village gossips said It was
' fceoause of Mary Williams, who regard
���ed him as a friend snd wns always
'��lad to see him come, and others said
tie bad his eye on Tlllle Laugtoti, the
���daughter of the village lunkeeiwr. It
evas the talk that the two girls were
rivals, and tbe Innkeeper's daughter at
least eame to believe It and to feel bitter toward tbe girl In the postofflre
The situation of affairs was just right
-when there came an official complaint
against tbe Dover postofflce.
William Penfield. eon ef Deacon Pen
fleld. was In the hsliit of sending hi*
���old father money from lews every
month or two.
William waa of an economical turn
and did not want to pay a registry fee
or the premium exacted for a money
���order. The bill was simply Inclosed In
a letter. Tbe fstber wus Inclined to be
garrulous snd to look upon It as a
erasrt trick to get ahead of Uncle Sam
and so fn time every one In snd around
Dover csme to know whst would bare
lieen more prudent to he kept secret.
A money letter wns missing. Uld Mr
I'enfleld haunted the imsiolllre for s
���week and theu wrote l�� WlUlsm. Wll
Ham made affidavit that li* wrote Hnd
inclosed s ten dollar bill on s certain
���Silts. It wns tlie business of Cncle
Sam to aend out s tracer snd for one
of bis lusertors to follow It up. lu
eiMKtor Craufortb too* bb> Mme ebout
It but be finally traced tne letter Into
tbe Dover iswtofflce By that time
there whs grent ado la the town. Old
Mr Penfield bndn't hesitated to ex
press his opinions that "some one'
eight In the bome imatoMce hsd crlbhed
tils letter and slsrtmrted tbe money,
end of course he referred to Mary.
She claimed to I* Innocent, but there
were those wbo beld to tbe contrary,
end when lns|ieotor Crseforth arrived
to carry his Investigation further there
eras great excitement. Te the Intense
Indignation of hundreds of clttxens the
Investigation wss beld within closed
doors-that Is, Mery wss questioned
only In tbs presence ot a Justice of the
lience. She was nervosa snd excited
nnd shaken. Rbe sdmltted her bellel
tbnt such s letter hsd arrived st about
such s dale, but what Int* lieeome of
It. If not delivered, she could uot say.
The establishment wss a ctinililna
tion grocery and iwetofflce A person
could have anenked tttto the postolllce
pnrt from the gns-ery. hut he would
bnve had to look over ell the geneml
delivery mull to get the I'enfleld letter
He would hnve also bad to hit ths
exact date uf Its arrival.        i
Kvery Incident of the dsy was recalled, but suspicion could not be directed ngnlnet nnybody. The letter hn*
nrrlved. but what hsd become of It
whs s puxsls. Two honrsr tslk wss
leaving the Investigation Just where it
hnd begun when the outstdscs domsnd-
sd that ths girl's trunk at bar boarding
place be searched. Bhe went psle ln sn
Instant, aud aa tbs inspector noticed It
a suspicion lodged In bis heart Wben
asked lf sbe were willing she hesitated
snd finally declined. Even tbe good old
Justice, who was her friend, looked at
ber with pity in his face. The Inspector
stared Into vacancy a moment and
then hla mind waa made up.
"Mary, bave you a ten dollar bill In
your trunk?" be asked.
"I���I"��� she stammered.
"Hsve you or have you not?"
"Yes. but-butH-
"Tbon you took tbe letterr
"Oh, I couldn't have done It���I never
did ttl" sbe walled.
"Then where did the bill come fromr
"I can't tell you. Please don't ask me
anything more I didn't take tbe Pen-
field letter, but I-I can't tell you!"
"Poor girl!" sighed tbe justice ss bs
walked serosa to the hotel wltb tbe Inspector.
"I've got s duty to do," was tbe reply.
When tbe Inspector bad reached Ills
room be sat down and wrote out his
resignation, to tuke Immediate effect
Some one else would bave to srrest
Mary Williams. It was the hardest
blow of his life. He had been thinking
of her for s month pust us his wife.
It seemed Impossible thst she could be
guilty, and yet the lns|iector sent on
to tuke hls place must arrest her on
ber owu showing. The mnn wns feeling more sore at heart than ever before
In hts life when he beard two female
voices In tbe next room. Tbere was a
vacant stovepipe bole Just above his
head that let every word flout through.
The women were the Innkeeper's wife
and hls daughter.'and he heard tbe
mother sny:
"Tlllle. where did you get that ten
dollar hill changed?"
"At thc butcher's." was the reply.
"And whnt did you do with the letter?"
"Burned It up. Don't you go to fretting over things. They sny that Mary
will lose ber place. Imt nothing else
will happen. 1 wnnt to get Mr. Cranforth In the parlor tonight end sing and
play for him."
Ten minutes later the Inspector wss
at tbe butcher's, asking questions. He
weut from there to the postofflce for a
few minutes' talk wltb the accused
girl. When he hud asked a question
or two she remembered that on a certain date when she hnd hnlf n dozen
letters ln her hand sbe I id lieen culled
into the grocery part In a hurry and
had Ivft the letters on the counter for
a . moment beside the Innkeeper's
daughter. I.
"And now about searching your
trunk?" asked the Inspector.
KV handed him the key In a shunie-
fiu-ed way und snld:
"I don't wnnt yyu to. but If yon must
then yon will find the bill In a letter.
Read the letter."
Tbe justice wns taken along. The
letter and money were found, and hoth
read the letter and replaced It and
went out of the room almost on Uptoe.
The Inspector had never heard that
Mary even had a bean. The letter
proved thst she was engaged to a
young man In n neighboring town and
he had sent ber the money to save up
with more against their wedding.
"Why didn't yon tell nie this before?" Hsked the Inspector of tbe girl
that evening.
"I-1 dMu't want to hurt you." abe
replied.
""Hurt me-how?r
"I knew yon were falling la love
with me. and you are ao old. yon know,
and I'd have fo say no. you see"���
"I understand." be finished, with a
sigh. and. going Into Ills own ro����n. he
tore up bis resignation snd sat d��wu
and figured it all out and said to himself:
���The girl la right Tbe man of fifty
wbo has a romance Is an old fool!"
He wss not entertained ln the Inn
parlor that evening. He never ships
there now. The thing was somehow
fixed up between the landlord and old
Penfield and the government, hut It Is
whls|>erod around that It cost Ihe for
mer a thousand dollars and tint Tlllle
Is likely to dlr uu old maid.      *
Cemorrlst Becomes Insane.
Plst, Dec. 5.���Qulseppe de Marlnls,
one of the members of the Camorra,
who waa convicted at Vlterbo of being Implicated In the murder of CFuc-
colo, and sentenced to 30 years Imprisonment, has become insane.
HIS BAPTISM OF FIRE.
The Sensation Was Different From
What Hs Expected.
A curious story of a Lieutenant
Harford of tbe Ninety-ninth regiment
wbo served In a Zulu campaign, la told
by Colonel Hamilton Browne In "A
Lost Legionary In South Africa."
"He was a charming companion, ons
of the very beat, but be was a crazy
motbu nd beetle hunter and would run
about on tbe hottest days wltb a landing net to catcb batterflles and otber
Insects. - He. moreover, collected and
treasured snakes, scorpions snd loathsome beasts of all aorta. He bad never
been under flre before and bad on two
or three occasions talked to me about a
man's feelings wblle undergoing hla
baptism of fire

WHAT HE DESERVES.
rpilE man who thinks that be Is It
���*���    Who's sure that he's a brand new hit
With people great and people small.
Who's oertaln that he knows lt allies, all there Is and maybe morels truly a tremendous bore.
He i* a man, I say, whom you'll
Avoid aa you'd a tricky mule.
He's alwaya round with hls advice
And certain he Is cutting Ice.
He puts lt out In easy reach
And says that It Is sure a peach
And bound to help you while you wstt,
As certain and as sure as fate.
Just ask him.   Ha wlll do the rest
Or bust the buttons off his vest
a
He's krlmmlng full of arguments      .
That look to you like thirty cento,    '
But he la aura tbat they ars right
And bands them out In sheer delight  \
It's bound to be lust what you need.
This bloomin' bunk thst Is his screel.
He showers lt round as thick aa hall
Cornea riding on an August gals.
When he la ready to begin
We ought to take the fellow In.
Tie to his bead a silken bag.
So when hie tongue begins to wag
The heated air will soon or late
The pretty little bag Inflate,
And then the trusty silk balloon
WiU bear him upward to the moon.

of living that prevailed in 1812 ?
In spite of all the praise of "the good old days,"
would you be content to give up the many conveniences
we have gained in the past century?
Former generations knew nothing of the luxuries
of modern travel with its observation cars, individual
lights in Pullman berths, phonograph recitals, rich appointments, home-like comforts, and special safety devices with which the modern railway system surrounds
its passengers. \..

Goea   to   Ottawa   to   Arrange   About
Land���Timber Leases May Be
Settled   Now.
Mr. F. J. MacKenzie, M.P.P. for the
Delta constituency, has Just ueft for Ottawa in an endeavor to induce the
Dominion government to make a grant
of a large' section of Crown land
bordering on thc Yale road to the
municipality for park purposes. He
will take the matter up with the
department of the interior which exercises supreme control over all government lands.
The tract of land to be specifically
requested' by Mr. MacKenzie is approximately a mile square and divided
Into two parts bv the Yale-Cariboo
road. The property lies nbout three
and a half miles south of Westmlnstei;
and Is practically wild land grown
over with heavy timber. Its value
for park purposes ls greatly enhanced on account of the fact that a number of beautiful small creeks deviate
here and there through it.
The property is at present out on
timber lease but as thiB expires short
ly it was thought a good time to approach the government with a view
to having It reserved for scenic park
purposes, For some three years past
the residents throughout the district
have been agitating for more reserve places as there has been very
little provision mado ln this regard
so far. It is not expected that Mr.
MacKenzie will meet with much opposition In his request, as the government officials when interviewed on
the matter previously gave intimation
that the land would probably be reserved if the timber leases could h<*
settled satisfactorily. It is the member's intention to take uo several
other matters pertaining to the district while at Ottawa.
