j Sir, -
In accordance with the decision
I arrived at the meeting of the
! Board of Horticulture held at
Vernon in June last, that I should
investigate the markets and the
general conditions of the fruit
trade in the three western provinces, 1 left Hammond on the
14th of June for Nelson and having spent the intervening months
in travel and study of the question, I now beg to report as follows:
POINTS VISITED
Points visited were Nelson,
Mcleod, Calgary, Edmonton, Red
Deer, Wetaskivvin, Medicine Hat,
Moose Jaw, Regina, Winnipeg,
Brandon, Virden, Moosomin,
Wolseley, Indian Head, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, North and S.
Battlel'ord, Milestone, Areola,
Weyburn, Yellow Grass, Wilcok,
Maple Creek, Gleichen, Leth-
bridge, Clarcsholm, High River,
Nanton, Okotoks, Crossfield, Dis-
bury, Olds, Carstairs, Lacombe,
Strathcona, Portage La Prairie,
and numerous smaller points on
branch lines. All the points
named were visited a number of
times in order to ascertain the
conditions of our fruits arriving
at different dates as they followed
the order of the season.
MARKETS AND  FUTURE  OUTLOOK
Before going into detail I think
it would be well to dwell for a
moment on general conditions.
First, the market for British Columbia fruit is almost unlimited
because the population of the
three western provinces east of
the mountains, is increasing by
leaps and bounds, and wealth is
increasing almost as fast as the
population.
British Columbia is the nearest
and most natural fruit producing
market for all this territory, and
no matter how fast her fruit production may be increased, it can
never increase as rapidly as the
consumptive demand of the market. More especially is this true
of the demand in Alberta and
Saskatchewan. These provinces
are hardly touched by the producers of eastern Canada, who
are to some extent supplying
Manitoba. The further west you
travel from Winnipeg the less
you see of eastern fruits, with
the exception of apples. Eastern
Canadian apples are shipped
everywhere; indeed this year
they are being shipped even into
our own local market to supply
the shortage.
RAILWAY DEVELOPMENT
The railway development in
Alberta, Saskatchewan, and
Manitoba has been great during
the past few years and plans for
additional construction for the
coming year have been made by
all the railways. This is of more
importance to the British Columbia fruit grower than might at
once appear. Every added line
of railway and every improvement in railway service makes it
possible to reach more people
than were reached before. This
year, for example, lines of railway have opened markets that
so far as the people were concerned have existed for years,
but for lack of railway service it
has been impossible to reach
them. The Grand Trunk Pacilic
and extension of the Lacomb,
Outlook, and Wetaskiwin branches of the C. P. R. are all examples of this.
OPINIONS   OF WHOLESALERS AND
RETAILERS
Great care was exercised in
securing the opinion  of whole
salers and retailers of our fruit
at the present time, and also our
methods of packing and grading
a:id the prices of our fruit in
comparison with American and
i eastern Canadian.
SMALL FRUITS
I found the general concensus
of  opinion   very    favorable   to
our small fruits.    The criticisms
| offered were that while the fruit
' itself was of the best the British
j Columbia producer had still very
| considerable to learn in the matter  of  packing   and   grading.
Small fruits should be carefully
graded into large and small and
baskets should be more tightly
packed, and more carefully faced.
Uniformity of   size   is greatly
prized and dealers would apparently rather have a smaller berry
where all the fruit in the basket
is uniform and faced, than even
larger  berries  irregular in size
and thrown into the baskets haphazard.     These   remarks refer
specifically to strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.
CHERRIES AND PLUMS
British Columbia cherries are
not quite so favorably regarded
as the smaller fruits, and here
the difficulty has been largely
caused by shipping fruit from
Coast Districts as far east as
Winnipeg. This fruit does not
hold up well and should only be
shipped to the nearest Alberta
Markets and should then be sent
chiefly by express. The question
of packing and grading comes in
here also, and the comparison of
American and British Columbian packed cherries is distinctly
to the disadvantage of our fruit.
Here again, uniformity of size,
tight packing and careful facing
are most essential.
All that has been said of
cherries applies with equal force
to plums. The only cherries and
plums that it is safe to ship to
distant markets in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, are
those from Vancouver Island,
Kootenays, Vernon, and Okanagan points.
Peaches and pears from Summerland, Peachland, Vernon, and
other Okanagan points, and pears
from the lower mainland and
Vancouver Island are all welcomed in any of the markets
visited. Those fruits compare
most favorably with the same
fruits from Washington and Oregon, with which they come
directly in competition. The
flavor, color, and packing are
highly commended, and all that
is necessary is to keep up and
improve the present high standard.
APPLES
British Columbia boxed apples
hold a very high place in the estimation of the fruit trade in all
of the three provinces. Much of
the packing is equal to anything
from the American side, while
the color and flavor are quite as
good as the very best Ontario
apples. The apples most highly
prized are those from the Okanagan, Vancouver Island, Salmon
Arm, and the Kootenays, but
the lower mainland apples will
be welcomed once the growers
in these districts give more careful attention to spraying, pruning, and thinning, and all details
necessary to grow good fruit.
INCREASE OI'* SUPPLY
A very  important matter for
the fruit growers of British Columbia to bear in mind is the
1 urgent need of increasing the
Supply of all kinds of fruit
grown.    Wholesalers and  retail-
, ers alike complain that the supply of B.C. fruit is not sufficiently large or constant to meet the
requirements of their trade.
Another complaint is that too
frequently when asked for a car
of one variety of apples the reply
is ' 1 cannot give you more than

Penticton they were guests of
Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Carner.
A reorganization meeting of
the Local Option League will be
held in the Methodist church on

says he took the whole lot from
one hill. Had the editor of this
paper   grown   those   spuds   he
would have made it forty pounds,
but Mr. Evarts would not lie for
half a pound of potatoes,
A. J. Smythe, promoter of the
Peacheliffe fruitland subdivision,
at Okanagan Falls, was in Penticton on Thursday. Mr. Smythe
speaks very hopefully of the outlook for the Falls as well as for
the entire Okanagan Valley.
Peachcliff is the farm formerly
owned by Jas. Lang and is an
excellent tract of fruit land only
three fourths of a mile from the
wharf. Water rights go with
the land. Mr. Smythe visited
the Seattle exposition this summer and found many anxious
to hear about the Okanagan, especially so when they learned
that unimproved fruit land can
be bought at fifty dollars an acre
less here than in Washington
state.
Last Sunday, 31st inst, at 1
o'clock in the morning Henry
Murk caught two men at his
chicken house, one inside, handing the chickens to his partner
on the outside of the fence. At
the command of Mr. Murk,
"Whoa, Bill, whoa," Bill did not
whoa, but dropped the chickens
and started on an obstacle race,
down Forbes street, towards Okanagan Lake, beating the best
record of any professional obstacle runner, as some of his
running jumps measured 16 feet
(No. 8 shoe). The last heard of
Bill was when floundering in the
surf of Okanagan Lake. On account of darkness, and Bill not
"whoaing" when called upon,
the two culprits could not be
recognized (?) Loss of chickens
up to date, 27.
Miss Rose Lectures.
There was a fair attendance of
both sexes at the meeting on
Tuesday evening at which Miss
Laura Rose, of Guelph, Ont.,
lectured on Women's Institutes,
and Mr. B. Hoy on fruit growing.
Miss Rose proved herself a
capable and entertaining speaker,
having a thorough grasp of her
subject. Women's Institutes embrace the science of cooking,
ventilation, cleaning, and, in
fact, anything pertaining to
household work. The subscription is fifty cents per annum,
and this is supplemented by a
government grant. Besides this
the members receive the free
government literature issued by
the Department. The speaker
was interested in the organization of Women's Institutes in
Ontario, where over fourteen
thousand members are now enrolled.
It was the desire of Miss Rose
to organize a Women's Institute
here, but it was found impossible
to complete the organization that
evening. Mrs. J. W. Thompson
was appointed provisional president, and a meeting was announced for the following Friday
afternoon to elect' a president,
vice - president, secretary and
treasurer.
Mr. Hoy spoke only for a short
time, confining himself chiefly to
answering questions. He will be
here later and arrange for a
demonstration on pruning.
Mr. E. W. Mutch, president of
the Penticton Farmers' Institute,
occupied the chair.
Rifle Association Competition for
the Dominion Salver.
The final shoot in the above
competition was held last Saturday, and resulted in N. Hudon
adding 30 points, out of a possible
35, to his previous score. His
being the highest total, 170
points, he carries off the prize.

n.iiiy both wayt, during summer excepi .suti<ia>.. States to capture the fruit markets ot the prairie provinces, are
matters for immediate consideration by the growers in British
Columbia.
Ontario fruit growers have had
four or five representatives cov-
lering    Alberta,    Saskatchewan,
Prop, and Manitoba this season,  pushing the sale of their products;
further, associations have been
formed    in   Ontario   with   the
special obtect of shipping to the
west.    The results have been a
larger consumption  of  Ontario
fruit  than   ever before in the
west  and an extension of the
| territory supplied much nearer
! to the   Rocky   Mountains   than
I they   have   ever  come   before.

, ly heavy one this season and they

AMERICAN   CONTROL   OF    FRUIT

The fruit jobbing trade of the!
prairie provinces is to a considerable extent in  American hands.

side, and in addition the American capitalists collect a brokerage fee on every car of fruit,
both citrus and decidous, going
into any of these houses. They
have'a number of orchards of
their own, the fruit of which is
sold to the various houses. Managers in several of the Canadian
houses stated, however, that
they were not confined to American fruits, but were prepared to
buy in the cheapest market and
were prepared to buy British
Columbia fruit whenever they
could get a sufficient supply;
that they had already bought
considerable quantities and were
prepared to buy still larger supplies in the future.
This system of jobbing houses
recently acquired a large jobbing
[house in Spokane, Wash., and it
I is from this point particularly
that agents have been sent out
to cover the province of Alberta.
The fruit rates from Spokane
along the Crow's Nest down to
Medicine Hat, and north by Mac-
leod to Calgary, are better than
any enjoyed by British Columbia
growers with the single exception of the Kootenays, and their
rates are possibly a little better
even than from the Kootenay.
This year Spokane berries were
actually sold in Nelson in considerable quantities. Southern Alberta is the natural market for
the Kootenays, and it is a very
rapidly developing market as
settlement is rushing in. In addition to the railway already in
operation there is a new line projected from Lethbridge to Wey-
burn on the Soo Line in Saskatchewan. This line would open
up a large, new section of Alberta and practically all of southern Saskatchewan to fruit coming in over the Crow's Nest. It
will be seen from this how urgent
it is that the Kootenay growers
should strain every nerve to increase the output of both large
and small fruits as quickly as
possible in order to overtake this
market and prevent its falling
entirely into the hands of the
American growers and shippers.

tered gave the visitor a pill"
greeting and a moment inter,
lien ring the wheels of the brougham
crunch the gravel of the carriage drive,
hurried awny dowu the hroiul hall and
disappeared. Ariel dropped her parasol upon n marble topped table near
the door and, removing her gloves,
drifted into a room nt the left, where
a grand piano found shelter beneath
crimson plush. After a moment of
contemplation she pushed bnck the coverlet and. seating herself upon the
plush covered piano stool (to match I,

keyboard once and fall listlessly in her
lap as she gazed with deep Interest at

"Please don't stop playing. Miss Ta
bor." said a voice behind her. She had
not observed that Eugeue had followed
her into the room.
"Xery well, if you like." she answer-
ed. looking up to smile absently at
him, and she began to play a rakish little air which, composed by some rattle
brain nt a cafe table, had lately skip
ped out of the Moulin Rouge to disport
itself over Paris. She played it slowly in tlie minor, with elfish pathos,
while he leaned upon the piano, his
eyes fixed upon her lingers, which bore
few rings���-none, be observed with an
unreasonable pleasure, upon the third
fiuger of the left hand.
"It's one. of those simpler Grieg
things, isn't It?" he said, sighing gen
tly.    "1 care for Grieg."
"Would you mind Its beiug Chain!-
uade?" she returned, dropping her eyes
to cloak the sin.
"Ah. no: I recognize it now." replied
Eugene, "lie appeals tj me even more
than Greiir."
At this she glanced quickly up at
him, but more quickly dowu again, and
hastened tlie time emphatically, swing
ing the little air Into the major.
"Do you play 'The Pilgrim's Chorus?' "
She shook her head.
"Vous name pas Wagner?" Inquired
Eugene, leaning toward her.
"Oh. yes," she answered, bending
her head far over, so that her face was
concealed from him. except the chin,
which, he saw with a thrill of Inexplicable, emotion, was trembling slightly. Therfl were some small white Mowers upon her hat. and these shook too.
When she turned to him lie was surprised to see thnt she looked astonishingly happy, almost as if she had been
struggling with Joy instead of pain.
"This chair." sbe said, sinking iuto
It, "makes me feel nt home."
Naturally 1    could uot understand.
"Because," sho explained. "I once
thought I was going to live In it. It
has been reupbolstered, but I should
know It if I met it anywhere iu the
world."
"How very odd!" exclaimed Eugene,
staring.
"1 settled hero in pioneer days." she ]
went on. tapping the arms lightly with I
her finger tips    "It was the last dance
1 went to in Canaan."
"1 fear tho town wns very provincial ,
nt that time." he returned, having com- |
pletoly forgotten the occasion she mentioned, therefore wishing to shift  tho |
subject.    "I  fear you may still find it
80.    There is not much here that oue Is i
In   sympathy   with   intellectually   few
people really of the world."
"lew people, I suppose you mean."
she said softly, with a look that went
deep into his eyes���"few people who
really understand one."
Eugene hnd seated himself on the sill
of an open window close by.    "There !
has been." he answered, with the ghost
Of a sigh, "no one."
Mamie appeared In the doorway, nnd
Eugene rose swiftly. "I have been
trying to persuade Miss Tabor." he explained, with something too much of
laughter, "to piny again. You heard
that Utile tiling of Cliiiniininle's"���
Mamie did not appear to hear him.
She entered breathlessly, and there
was  uo color In  her cheeks.    "Ariel,"
,JC.
she exclaimed,  "1  don't want you to
think I'm a tale bearer"���
'Oh.   my  dear!"   Ariel  said,   with   a
gesture of deprecation.
"No," Miss I'ike went on. nil In one
breath,   "lint   1   am   afraid   you   will
think it. because papa knows, and he j
wants to see you."
"Whnt is it that lie kuows?"
"Tbat you were walking with Joseph.
Louden!"    (This   was   as   if   she   hail
said. "That you  poisoned your  ninth
er.")   "I didu't tell him. but when he
saw you with him I was troubled nrul
nsked  Eugene whnt I'd better do, he
cause he always knows what is best."
'IfH one uf tlinne simpler Grieu tliimji.,
Isn't it?" he mid.
iMr. Bantry's expression, despite this
tribute, was not happy.) "And he nil
vised me to tell mamma about il lllld
leave it In her hands. But she always
tells papa everything" ���
"Certainly; that is understood," snid
Ariel slowly, turning to smile at Ku
iene.
The daughter of the house exhibited
signs of consternation. "He wants to
see jou." she repeated faltet'lugly
"lie's iu the library."
Having thus discharged her errand
she hastened to tho front door, which
had been left open, and out to the
steps, evidently with the Intention oi
removing herself ns soon and as far ns
possible from the vicinity of the li
brary.
Eugene, visibly perturbed, followed
her to the doorway of the room and
paused.
"Do you know the wny?" he Inquir
ed. with a note of solemnity.     ,
"Where?"    Ariel had not risen.
"To the library."
"Of course." she snid. beaming upon
hlin. "I was about to ask you if you
wouldn't speak to the judge fi c Die.
This is such a comfortable old friend,
this chair."
"Speak to him for you?" repeated
the nonplused Eugene.
She nodded cheerfully. "If I mny
trouble you. Toll him certaial.v I
shall be glad to see hhu."
Eugeue went. There was nothing
else to do. Aud he wished with eveir.i
step thnt the distance to the portals
of the library might hnve been greater
In whatever guise lie delivered tbe
summons, it was perfoctly ellicaciotis.
A door slammed, a heavy and rapid
treed was heard in the hall, and Ariel.
Without otherwise moving, turned her
hend and offered a brilliant smile of
greeting,
"It was good of you." she said as the
doorway filled with red. imperial wrath,
"to wish to have a little chat with me.
I'm anxious, of course, to go over my
affairs with you. and Inst night aflei
my journey I wns ton tired. But uow
we might lieirin. not in detail, of course,
lust yet. That will do for later when
I've learned more about business."
Ihe great one had slopped on lhe
threshold.
"Madam," he begnn coldly, "when I
sny my library I mean my"���
"Oh. yes," she interrupted, wilh amiable weariness; "I know. You mean
you keep all the papers and hoojks of
the estate in there, but I thlufc we'd
belter put Ihem off for n few days"
"I'm not talking nbout the estate!"
he exclnimed. "Whnt ! wnnt to lull;
to you about is being seen with Joseph
Louden!"
"Yes." she nodded brightly. "Thnt's
along the line we must lake up first."
"Y'es. it is!" He hurled liis bull bass
nt her. "You knew everything nbout
him nnd liis standing 111 this comniuni
ty! I know you did. been use Mrs. I'ike
told me you nsked nil about bim from
Minnie after you came last night, and.
see here, don't you"���
"Oh, but I knew before that." she
laughed. "I had a correspondent In
Canaan, one who has always taken a
great interest In Mr. Louden. I asked
Miss I'ike uflly to get her own point of
view."
"I want to tell you. madam," he
shouted, coming toward her, "thnt no
member of my household"���
"That's another point  we must  take
up today. I'm glild you remind me of
it." she snid thoughtfully, yet with so
laglcnlly compelling un intonation
dial Ue stopped his shooting In the
middle of a word, stopped with an
apoplectic splutter. "We must arrange
to put the old bouse in order at once."
"We'll arrange nothing of ihe sort."
he responded alter a moment of angry
silence. "You're going to stay right
here."
"Ah. I know your hospitality." she
bowed graciously. "But of course I
must mil tax it too far. And about
Mr. Louden? As I snid. 1 want to
speiu; to y ni about him."
"Yes." lie intervened harshly, "sn o>
I. and I'm going to do it quick! You'll
liud"-
Aguin she mysteriously baffled him.
"He's a dear old friend ol mine, you
know, and I have made up my wind
Hint we hotll need his help, yen and I."
"\\ bat!"
"Y'es." she continued calmly, "In ��
business way, i mean. I know yon
have great interests in n hundred directions, all mire Important than mine.
It isn't fair thai you should bear fhe
whole burden nf my affairs, and I
think it will be be-t to retain Mr.
Louden as my man of business. He
could take all the cares of the eMat��
off your shoulders."
Ma ri in i'ike spoke no word, but he
looked al her strangely, and she watched him with sudden keenness, leaning
forward In her chair, her gaze alert
but quiet, fixed ou lhe dilating pupils
Of   his   eyes.      lie   seemed   In   become
dizzy, and the choleric scarlet which
'ind overspread his broad face nnd big
neck faded splolehily.
Still keeping her eyes upon him, she
wenl ou: "I huveu'l nsked him yet
and so I don'l know whether or not
he'll consent, but I think it possible
that he may come tj see me this afternoon, niul if he does we enn propose
it to liini together nnd go over things
a little."
Judge I'ike recovered his voice.
'He'll gel n warm welcome," he promised huskily, "if he sets foot on my
premises!"
"Y'ou mean you prefer 1 shouldn't
receive him here?" She nodded pleasantly. "Then certainly I shall not.
Such thiugs are much belter for offices;
you nre quite fight." She swept lightly and quickly to the door, where she
paused, gathering her skirls. "I shall
not detain you another instant! And
if Mr. Loudon comes this afternoon I'll
remember. I'll uot let htm come iu,
of course. It will lie perhaps pleas-
antor to talk over my proposition as
we walk!"
There wns a very faint, spicy odor,
like wild roses aud cinnamon, left in
the room where Martin Pike stood
nlone. staring whltoly at tlie open doorway.
CHAPTER XIII.
THEIIE was a custom of Canaan,
time worn and seldom honored
In the breach, which put Ariel
that afternoon In easy possession of a coign of vantage commanding tbe front gnte. The heavy Sunday
dinner was finished In silence (ou tbe
part of Judge Pike deafening) about o
o'clock, and soon after Mamie tossed
a number of cushions out upon the
stoop between the cast iron dogs. Snm
Warden having previously covered Ihe
steps with a rug and placed several
garden chilli's near by on the grass.
These simple preuhrutlons concluded,
lOugent sprawled comfortably upon the
n:g and Mamie seated herself near
him. while Ariel wandered with apparent aimles-uess about the lawn, followed by the gaze of Mr. Bantry until
Miss I'ike begged her a little petulantly to join Ihem.
She came, looking about her dreamily and touching to her lips now antl
then, with an absent air, a clover blossom she had found in the longer grass
against the feuce. She stopped to pat
the nock of one of the cast iron deer
nnd, with grave eyes, proffered tho
clover top lirst for inspection, then ns
food. There were those in the world
who. seeing her. might have wondered
that the deer did not play Oalatea and
come to life.
She had put on her hat after dinner,
and Mamie now inquired if she would
not prefer to remove it. offering t'i carry il indoors for her, to Ariel's room,
to insure ils safety, "You look so
sorl of temporary, wearing It," she
urged; "ns if you were only here for a
Kiltie while. It's the loveliest hat I
ever snw, and so fragile, too, hut I'll
ta.'ie care"���
"I am wearing my hat." answered
Ariel, "because at any moment I may
decide to go for n long walk."
"Oh. f hope not," said Mamie,
"There are sure to be people. A few
still come, even though I'm an eu-
gayed girl. I expeet Hint's just to console me, though," she added, smiling
over this worn quip of tlie betrothed
ard shaking lifjr head at Eugene, who
crew red nnd coughed. "There'll be
plenty today, bnt they won't be here
to see me. It's you, Ariel, nnd they'll
be terribly disappointed if you weren't
here. I shouldn't wonder if the whole
town came. It's curious enough nbout
.vim!"
And now the young men of the town,
laboriously arranged iu- to apparel,
hojjtin to appear on the street in small
sounds, making their Sunday rounds,
the youngest working in phalanxes of
threes nnd fours, those somewhat older Inclining to move in pairs, the
eldest, such as were now beginning to
be considered middle aged beans or
(by the extremely youthful) "old bachelors." evidently considered it advantageous to travel alone. Of all these
there were few who did not before
evening fell turn io at the gate of the
Pike mansion. ('oi��!""iously, shyly or
confidently, according to the condition
of tbelr souls. Ihey made their way
between the cast Iron deer to be presented lo the visitor.
Ariel snt nt the top of Ihe steps and.
looking amiably over their fields, talk-
ihI witli such as could get near her.
There were many who could not, and
Mamie, occupying the bench below.
wns surrounded by the overflow. The
difficulty of reaching and maintaining
a position near Miss Tabor was increased by the attitude and behavior
of Mr. Flltcroft who that day cooled
ihe feeling of friendship which several
of his fellow townsmen had hitherto
entertained for him. He had been the
first to arrive, coming alone, though
thai was not his custom, and he established himself at Ariel's right, upon
tlie sleii inst below her so disnosino'
rfe great body and the pouoerous
irrns and h'cs the gods had given bim
thai no one could mount above him
ro sit beside ber or approach her from
thai direction within conversation:!1
distance.
Norbert not ordinarily talkative, had
uolhiug to say. He seemed to find suf
flcjeut occupation in keeping tbe place
he had gained, and from this close
vantage be fastened bis small eyes
Immovably upon Ariel's profile. Eugene, also apparently determined uot
to move, sat throughout the afternoon
nl her left but as he was thin others
who came and went were able to approach upon that side aud hold speech
with her.
Tbe conversation of the gallants consisted for the greater part of witticisms nl one another's expense, which,
though evoked for Ariel's benefit tall
e.- es furtively reverting to ber as each
shaft was loused), she found more or
less enigmatical. The young men, however, laughed nt each other loudly und
seemed content If now nnd then she
smiled. "You must be frightfully en
nulod with all this," Eugene said to
her. "You see how provincial we still
nre."
She did not answer. She had not
heard him. Tlie shadows were stretching themselves over the grnss long und
attenuated. The sunlight upou the trees
nnd bouses was like n tbin. rosy pigment, blackbirds were culling each other home to beech nnd elm, and Ariel's
eyes wore fixed upon the western distance of the street where gold dust was
beginning to quiver in the air. She did
not hear Eugene, but she started a
moment later when tbe name Joe Louden was pronounced by a young man.
the poetic Bradbury, ou the stop below
Eugene. Some one immediately snid,
"Sh!" But she leaned over aud addressed Mr. Bradbury, who. shut out.
not only from the group about her, bill
from the other centering upon Miss
Pike ns well, was holdiug a private
conversation with a friend in like mis-
fortuue.
"What were you saying of Mr. Lou
den-'" she asked, smiling dowu upon
the young man. (It was this smile
which inspired his description of her
ns "a revelation nud n dream.")
"Oh. nothing particular," wns his em
bnirassed reply. "I only mentioned I'd
beard there was some talk among
the"- He paused awkwardly, remembering that Ariel had walked with
Joseph Louden In the face of Canaan
that very day. "That is, I mean to say.
there's some talk of his ruuniug for
mayor."
"What?"
There was a general exclamation,
followed by an uncomfortable moment
or two of silence. No one present was
unaware of that noon walk, though
there was prevalent a pleasing notion
that it would uot happen agaiu. founded on the idea that Ariel, having only
arrived the previous evening, had probably met Joe on the street by accident
aud. remember lug him us a playmate
of her childhood aud uninformed as to
his reputation, had. naturally enough.
permitted him lo walk home with her.
Mr. Flltcroft broke the silence, rush
lug Into words with a derisive laugh:
"Yes. he's 'talked of for mayor���by
the saloon people and the niggers! 1
expect the Beaver Beach crowd would
be for him, and if tramps could vote
lie might"���
"What Is Beaver Beach?" asked Ariel,
