Penticton vs. Peachland at Football.
^he Penticton football eleven
went to Peachland on Saturday
last and played their first game
of the season with the team oi
that place. When the two halves
of forty minutes each had been
played the score stood 6���0 in
favor of the home team. The
game throughout was clean and
| the most friendly feeling prevailed. The visitors were greatly handicapped by the condition
| of the grounds, which being a
bed of shingle, were difficult to
run on. Though fairly level
these grounds are quite different
to the turf the Penticton boys
are accustomed to ; but that is
not the principal reason why the
visitors lost. Their forwards
were very weak, as was evidenced by the fact that when
the ball was passed to them they
gave the Peachland goal-keeper
only three or four opportunities to
return it, during the whole game.
The Peachland backs were strong
and the play was almost continually in the neighborhood of Penticton's defence. Foster did
some pretty work in goal and
made numbers of smooth saves.
Penticton's backs, too, did splendid work.
It is only about a month since
the Penticton team was re-organized, and their practices number
but four or five. By strengthening the weak points mentioned
and getting a little combination,
an interesting game can be
expected when the return match
is played on Thanksgiving Day.

An interesting and exciting
event took place last Saturday
afternoon in the form of a paper
chase, in which many of the citizens of both sexes, and most of
the saddle horses, joined. The
capture was made by Mrs. I, M.

The only regrettable incident
was that the horse ridden by
Thos. Johnson stumbled and fell
upon the rider's leg, bruising it

Sutherland and family on Main
St., was on Tuesday evening the
scene of a very pleasant gathering to a party given by the

guests were present and a most
enjoyable evening was spent
with games of various descriptions. Miss Sutherland, who
bears with her the kind  regards
of a host of friends, left Thursday morning, and will probably
be absent for a year among old
friends at Moose Jaw.
Dredging the River.
Joseph McDonald, who is to
have charge of the dredging of
Okanagan River, arrived from
Vernon on Tuesday. Lumber
has been secured and a camp is
being erected near the mouth of
the River. The dredge is now
on its way from Vernon, and
work will begin with as little
delay as possible. It is proposed
to spend five thousand dollars
this season on clearing the passage of obstructions. A further
grant from the Dominion Government will probably be applied
for at the next session of the
House of Commons, but the
work this fall should render the
river navigable for small steamers, thus giving the residents of
Okanagan Falls and vicinity a
means of communication by water with the outside world.

The Servile Press.
A large percentage of the
newspapers of this province
would make an honest editor
blush, if one could be found.
Any old party and any old policy
is good enough for them so long
as their services are amply remunerated. Two of the most
pitiable spectacles at the present
time are the Vancouver World
and the B. C.   Saturday Sunset.
Previous to the announcement
of the Dominion elections the
World excelled itself in pouring
a flood of filthy vituperations over
everything Conservative. No
language was too abusive, no
misrepresentation too great and
no headlines too large to blacken
the character of its political opponents. But the World wanted
something, something which it
did not get at the time, so it
promptly got on the political
fence and began throwing
boquets at the opposition any
finally dropped to the other side
and joined its former opponents
in an endeavor to put the Liberals out of business. This much
was bad enough, but it did not
end there, for now that august
journal has again jumped the
fence, on the slightest pretext,
and is again hurrahing for the
Mclnnis party.
The position taken by the Saturday Sunset is almost as bad
and even more ridiculous. That
paper has usually stood for the
highest in politics, but when one
sees it starting out as an inde-
psndent supporter of Cown, and
then straddling the fence about
the time that the Pacific Globe
began publication at its office, he
begins to fear that the lofty
political ideals of the paper are
not very deeply rooted. The
Sunset's explanation, that it did
not follow that because it had
supported Cowan's nomination it
should support his election, is
silly and weak in the extreme.
The editor says in the same
article that he does not yet know
how he shall vote. All we can
say to this is that the editor,
who, after listening to the discussion of political issues by both
parties for over a month, besides
having every opportunity to post
himself upon the past record of
the government and yet cannot
make up his mind how to vote,
is scarcely capable of fiiling a
position as a moulder of public
The worst feature of the subsidized   press   is   not  that   the
papers speak as they are paid  to
speak, but rather that so  many
people are fools enough  to  be-'
lieve what they say.    The  poori
���deluded   public   eagerly   devour j
every scrap of sensational news,
and the newspapers,  backed  by
the   men   who   hold  the purse I
strings, are ever ready to throw j
out their bait and rake in  their j
victims.    What British Columbia ;
and the whole of Canada need
to-day is not merely honest politicians   but   honest   newspaper
men as well, men who cannot be
hired either to speak or to  hold I
their tongues,  but who,  guided j
by the highest light of the  agj,
and the dictates of conscience, I
will stand for right and  honesty |

from Kelowna, Saturday, a party
of homeseekers, among them
being Mr. and Mrs. Law, of Cal-j

fruit trees, and may return later

Mr.   and   Mrs.   Robinson,   of

Miss  Warnicker's   home   was

j day afternoon, when The  Girls' i
Handicraft Club met to shower
j upon one of its members, who is
i soon to become the bride of one
I of our esteemed citizens, all  the
lovely things that go to make up
the furnishings of adiningroom:
china, cut glass and linen.     The !
table decoration was carried out
in yellow and  white effect,
Club colors.    Each  present
: hidden, and attached was a
bon, leading to the centre piece
of   yellow   and    white    asters,
where the  several  ribbons centered and were bowed in a  'true
lovers' knot,' which the bride untied.    The bride cut the bridecake which  contained the   old
time ring,  money and thimble,
and caused a good deal of fun.
A well-put and curt little speech
from   the   bride   was   enjoyed,
after which the singing of 'She's
j a jolly good fellow, and  the extending of good wishes on the
part of the  Club,  an enjoyable
afternoon was brought to a close.
Newly   Receive
Don't Keep Hens
but make the hens keep you by
using a reliable egg food. I.
Kent has purchased from one of
the leading poultrymen in A-
merica a valuable recipe for egg
food. This food has been on the
market for twenty years and has
given general satisfaction to
those who have used it throughout the United States and Canada* The same people have
bought it year after year because
it has proven to be the most
profitable egg producing food
they have found, by keeping
their hens laying all winter when
eggs are high; and when this
food is given breeding fowls
their eggs have shown better
fertility and chicks hatched from
them have been more hardy.
This food is now made at the
"Lake View Poultry. Yards."

That did not escape Matthews. lie
shamed his momentary embarrassment and resolutely grappled the matter that bad brought him. "I want t'

"Hub!"  ejaculated   Matthews   In  an
[ugly tone.   He came a few paces nearer.   "I got f see him, jus' tb' same."
"But you can't."
"Ain't be f home?"
I   Marylyn pressed close to her sister.
"Tell him yes." she begged  nervously.
Dallas hesitated. Then sho answer-
ied: "He's not home. Will you please
'come again���some other time?"
The gambler chuckled. "My dear

"Ah!" Dallas was thinking fast. At
her shoulder, aware all at once thai
they were In danger, was Marylyn,
clinging In pitiful terror.
"Yes," added Matthews, as if that
clinched the matter.
Dallas looked at bim without speaking.
"I Jus' come from Dodge City." he
went on. "My intention is t' live on
my land all winter I'm very sorry"

house. We know his six months is almost up too. But If you're bim. and
even if you've got back only a few
hours before it's up, I'm willing, and
I think dad 'II be, for you to have the
claim. But you must pay for what
we've done on it."
"I never ast y' f do anything on it."
"That's so.    But the law says"���
"Aw, th' law be d���d! 1 don't
pay a cent!"
"Then I know dad won't leave."
"Oh, you do'.'"
"Yes," very quietly.
"Well, let me tell y', my dear, that
you're dead wrong. You're golu' t' git
your duds an' grub t'gether right now.
In half a' hour you leave this cabin!"
At this Marylyn began to sob.
"Come, get a move on!" ordered
Matthews threateningly. He knew that
If he wished to regain the laud there
would be no time better than the
present He began to walk up and
down, flinging bis arms about to start
tlie circulation.
Dallas turned to comfort Marylyn,
putting an arm about her protectlugly.
"Hush!" she said. "Keep quiet, honey!"
"Ob. let's go, let's go!" wailed the
younger girl.
Matthews en me forward again and
look out his watch, a large open faced
timepiece hung to a braided buckskin
chain. "Now, look n-bere," he said
peremptorily, "I don't want uo more
funny business. This claim's mine.
Your old man ain't got a solitary right
to it. So you got t' go. I'll give you
jus' ten minutes." With this lie resumed his pacing, comforting liis beat
with occasional drafts from a flask.
Dallas strove hard to collect herself.
"I can't do anything till dad comes,"
she called to him finally, "You want
us to leave. Why. we haven't got any
place to go. and U'h cold"���
"Olless I know that." interrupted
Matthews.    "I'm almost friz."
"And you've got no right to ask us
to go till you've paid for this house

"1 pay fer nothlll' I don't see an' fer

Dallas understood the Insult. Her
rray eyes flamed In tier grayer face.
She slammed the window.
Matthews came near, so that his face
nil but touched the glass. "Oh, that
don't do no good, my dear," be said,
raising his voice. "When I get ready
I'll come In."
Marylyn bad stilled her weeping to
listen to him. Now. pallid with fear,
she threw herself upon her sister and
agaiu burst forth.
Dallas put her swiftly aside. The
lace thai had been gray was now a
tense white. Her eyes were blazing.

spilling ground coffee Into his
boot lops. He strode to the
front of the store, the tin scoop in his
hand still hold recklessly upside down.
A pung was passing the grocery���a
grt*..'ii pung drawn by a milk white
horse. On its quilt padded seat were
two men. Above tbem as tbey slowly
proceeded sagged a high board cross.
Lounsbury glanced Inquiringly about
him. His neighbors were also watch-
lug the strauge sight. At the windows
of the bunkbouse opposite and at the
openings of other buildings near were
many faces, wide witli good uatured
grins. As Lounsbury turned to the
travelers again his owu mouth curved
in a smile.
But all at once he sobered. The pung
was now so far away that the backs
of the men were presented to him,
and between them, projecting nt a
slant over tlie seat, were the curved
tops of a pair of crutches.
Jocular opinions of the pnssersby
were being freely exchanged back and
forth. He paid no heed to them. The
scoop dropped from his hand and clattered upon the floor. He let it lie.
Silent and troubled, unaware of tbe
demands of an insistent customer, he
looked nfter the departing sleigh.
At last be acted. Without waiting
even to put ou his cap lie started at a
run up the street. His race, bare-
beaded, increased the laughter of those
who were still watching. They yelled
to him boisterously, "Sic' 'em. Bud!"
"Sell 'em somethlu'. John!" "Drag
'em back an' skin 'em!" But the storekeeper was deaf. Each yard made
him more certain of tbe identity of one
traveler. His thoughts as he pursued
were of him. He gained rapidly on
(he pung. At the edge of the camp, iu
tbe trough of a drift, he stopped it.
Lancaster spoke lirst. for Lounsbury
was too spent "Waal, waal!" be said
"lixcuse me." panted tbe other, giving in his eagerness only a glance at
David Bond, "excuse me, but I see
you're headed from home. I wondered���I thought maybe I could do a turn
for the young ladies while you're
Kor a moment the section boss did
not reply. He was still smarting over
Dallas' generalship and if anything
was more disgusted and rebellious
(ban when be left the shack So In
Ihe brief pause he gave ready ear to
Ihe whispering of the' yellow harpy.
His lids lowered    His lip curled
"i'oil understand. I'm sine," Lounsbury hastened to say. "1 thought they
might be alone, that"���
"Thank y'," answered Lancaster,
snapping out each word, "thank y',
tbey is alone. An' you'll oblige me a
d���n sight by leavin' em thet way!"
He settled himself In liis seat. "Git
ap!" he said to Shadrach. The pung
slipped slowly ou.
Lounsbury was too taken aback either to follow or to retreat. For awhile
lie stayed where be was, busily coining forcible phrases for the relief of
his mind. A.s he retraced his steps tbe
few men who saw him were discreetly
silent, for the camp knew that there
wer? rare moments when It was best
lo give him a wide berth.
Tlie interview in tlie trough of the
irift was so brief that David Bond
was shut out of it. But had It been
longer���had be been given a chance to
speak���the result might have been tlie
same. The section boss bad been
mute all tlie way to Clark's. The fact
that Dallas had told him to relate the
story of tlie claim was the strongest
reason for his not doing so. David
Bond therefore was left iu ignorance
and had no means of couuectiug tlie
evil companion of Ids journey north
witli the fortunes of the Lancasters.
So as tbey left Lounsbury behind lie
eveu found some censure in his heart |
for the storekeeper.
"You were quite right," he said,
flicking Shadrach gently. "That young
man should pay no visit to your daughters while you are absent Yet"���ho
could not refrain from putting a reproof where it seemed due���"yet I regret your manner of addressing him,
your oath"���
Lancaster glared. "Oh, you' grnn'-
mother's tortoise shell cat!" he said
wrathl'ully. for several hours thereafter he added nothing to tills.
Back in Ills store Lounsbury was
mixing brown sugar with white,
oolong tea witli a green variety and
putting thread lu tlie pickle barrel.
Simultaneously he was tortuHng himself, Had the section boss 9 t home
with no danger threatening'; But���the
green pung was undoubtedly bound
for Bismarck. What was It that had
suddenly made him see the necessity
of attending to (he claim'/ Along with
this came self arraignment. After all,
he should have told Lancaster that a
man who claimed the quarter section
ou the peninsula had beeu called from
Dodge City. Lounsbury had been certain   that   Matthews  could  not  reach
Tort  Branuon liefore tbe spring.    But
it bad never occurred to him that the
section    boss   would   leave   bis   girls j
aloue!    Now.  he   vowed   tbat  if  auy ,
harm   befell   Dallas   aud   Marylyu   be
had only himself to blame.
He buckled ou Ids pistol belt and
padlocked the door. "1 dou't care
whether tbe old man likes It or uot,"
he declared aloud, "I'm going down
As be swung through tbe camp on
his way to tbe corral he saw one of
old Michael's helpers coming toward
him, picking Ids steps in the slush.
The man motioned and held out out a
white something. It was an envelope,
grimy and uuaddressed.
Lounsbury ripped it open and pulled
out a written sheet

It was partly through the generous
employment of Ids Imagination that
the storekeeper was able to make out
the scrawl, which, though not signed.
he knew to be the pilot's. Tbat same
Imagination enabled him to bring up
numberless disturbing���almost terrible���pictures.
Tbe astonished helper gazed after
him as be went tearing away in the
direction of tbe horse herd. "By jingo!" he grumbled. "Twenty miles,
and he didn't even say treat!"
Soon iAJiinsbury's favorite saddler,
urged on by a quirt, was kicking up a
path across the crusted drifts tbat
Shadrach had so recently surmounted
As tbe storekeeper cantered swiftly
forward a new question presented
Itself to him. Was the "preacher" iu
league with Matthews, and so was
carrying the section boss out of the
way? He decided negatively. He had
given only a glnnee to Lancaster's
companion, but that, together with the
passing glimpse from the store, bad
6bown him a venerable man whose
piercing eyes held a pious light. He
was no scoundrel confederate. He
was plainly but n brave, perhaps a fanatic and foolhardy, apostle In the
wilderness, nnd bis calling had kept
Matthews from confiding In him.
While Lounsbury thus alternately
tortured and eased bis mind he bad
passed the somber clump of cotton-
woods where tbe Indian dead were
lashed nnd was fast covering the miles
that lay between the burial boughs
and Fort Brannon.
When the ten minutes he had allotted were past Matthews made a great
show of putting away his watch and
look a last pull at the whisky flask.
The bottle disposed of. he walked
down tlie drift to the warped door nnd
rapped a staccato. No answer was returned. Agaiu he rnpped aud more
Imperatively than before. Again no
answer. He pushed back bis hat aud
applied an ear to tlie bole through
which had hung the lifting string of
the latch. Then he heard long, infrequent sobs, like those of a child who,
though almost asleep. Is yet sorrowing. Between the sobs, punctuating
them fiercely, sounded the prolonged
sucking In of breath.
"Might as well stop y' bawlin" an'
Bqualliu'," he called through the latch-
hole    "Time's up!"
Getting no reply, as before, he alter-
wl his tatties. First, shading his face
with his slim lingers, be looked In.
He could not see the girls. Dallas was
close to the door and beyoud the limit
of bis vision. So wus Marylyn. v��-ho,
helpless with fright, half knelt, half
lay, against her sister. What he could
see was, from the south window, tlie
gaudy Navajo blankets forming two
partitions of Lancaster's bedroom und
nearer two partly tilled sacks, some
harnesses and the seat of n wagon.
The other window afforded a better
view. "Looks mighty comfortable,"
he said as he contemplated it. There
was a beartb with Its dying fire. In
front of It were circling benches and a
thick buffalo skin rug. Above was a
mantel, piled with calico covered
books. A freshly scrubbed table stood
In the farther corner beneath a dish
cupboard, which was made of a dry-
goods box. To the left of this, high up
on the log wall, were a couple of pegs.
It wns these that finally riveted
Matthews' attention and brought him
to a temporary halt. "Got th' gun
down!" he exclaimed. On finding that
Lancaster was gone he had decitled
not to produce a weapon. Now, however, he quickly felt for one and dropped on all fours. "That biggest gal 'd
no more mind punipin' lead into nm
than uothln'," he declared, wagging
his head wisely. "1 could loll that by
the shine in her eyes." He crawled
around the comer.
Behind the lean-to, he came to several conclusions. . It would be useless
to try to get In by either window.
Both were high and small. The best
spot for an attack was the door. Unless be was hard pressed he must uot
shoot. Women were concerned, nnd
the fort or Clark's might be stirred to
unreasonable retaliation in their name.
For exumple, there was that poor devil
of a cow puacher ut Dodge who bad
been riddled simply for slapping his
wife. Obviously the shack must be
occupied without the shedding of
blood. But what of his safety'.' "I'll
jus' have t' chauco it," be said, und
bunted for something to use as a battering ram.
Not a pole, not even a piece of board,
could be find. A scarcity of fuel be-1
fore Squaw Charley began furnishing
it bad led to the burning of every odd
bit of timber. Dlsgruutled, but uot J
discouraged, Matthews crawled buck
to the front of the cabin aud closely
examined the door. "I thought so!"
he declared joyfully when be was
done. Rain aud snow hud swelled the
thick boards of which It was built
But through the narrow cracks between these he saw that the transverse
pieces on the Inside, like the four with
out, were only slender battens, "ir I
can git some of tbem cleats off," he
said, "I cau bust iu."
With a born haudle knife he pried
up the eud of a batten until be could
get bis fingers beneath it. Then be
pulled, and it came away. A light
Btrip from side lo side marked where
It had been. Three times more he
pried and pulled, and the outer transverse pieces lay on the snow. For the
rest of bis job Matthews bad to depend on his shoulders.
1'utting his knife in his pocket, he
backed to tlie top of the nearest drift
There he gathered himself together
and, with a defiant grunt, hurled himself headlong at the door. As it bent
with (lie force of the impact a shriek
rung out. Well satisfied, Matthews ro-
treated and flung himself forward a
second lime. The door cracked ominously. The inside bolt rattled in its
sockets. Anticipating a speedy entrance, Matthews wanned to Ills task.
And each time he fell upon tbe harrier a weak moan from within swelled
(o a cry of mortal terror.
And then- a few feet behind hi in a
voice   interrupted���a   well   modulated

"Sorry,"  he   snld  dryly,   "but   it's  rny
voice   in   an   amused,   ironical   tone.
"Well," it said slowly, "1 hope you're
enjoying yourself."
Matthews whirled and reached for
a weapon. lie was too late. As he
swung it forward (he single eye of tt
revolver held liis. Beyond was Lounsbury.
A queer tremor ran around the storekeeper's mouth. His nostrils swelled,
und he wrinkled his forehead. "Sorry," he said dryly, "but it's my bead."
Sheer surprise, together with a lack
of breath, made tlie other dumb.
"Drop your gun," bade Lounsbury. ,
Matthews' right hand loosed its hold.
His revolver fell nnd slid, spinning, to
the bottom of tho drift.
"Now, 1 know all you want to say,"
said Lounsbury: "that this claim Is
yours, that your six months ain't up,
.Hint Lancaster's jumped it, and so ou.
But that won't excuse what you've
tried to do���break into this house while
these young women are alone. Besides, you haven't the ghost of a right
tn this land. So you'll oblige me bj.
keeping off it from now on."
Matthews found his tongue. "Who
in hell are you?" he demanded coolly.
"Who am IV" repeated tlie storekeeper, smiling down the revolver barrel,
"why, I'm St. George, and you're the
dragon." lie raised liis voice. "Miss
Lancaster!" he called. "Miss Lancaster!"
A face appeared at a window, then a
second. There were more cries, but
not of fear. Tlie sash was pushed
open. Dallas and Marylyn, the younger girl still clinging to the elder, looked out.
"It's all right," saitl the storekeeper,
not taking his eyes  from  the enemy, j
"I'm here."
Dallas could not answer.    But Marylyn, though exhausted, was fully alive !
to their  rescue     Her eyes,  wide and
tearful, were lixed iij-.pu Lounsbury.
"Oil, we're afraid!" she cried plaintively.    "I'a's gone, and we're afraid!"
"You needn't he any more," he said
Matthews under his breath was cursing the self contained UIUII in Hie saddle. Enraged al ihe storekeeper's interference, hot wiih disappointment,
he saw himself stood up like a tenderfoot But his CllUtlon prevailed. A
certain expression In Lounsbury's eyes,
a certain square set to his jaw, the
very cues that guided the cattle camp,
made him cautions.
"Look a-here," he said to Lounsbury, assuming a conciliatory manner.
"Let's talk as one gent to another.
These ladies is your friends. So far
so good. But I lias my rights, an' 1
can prove that I slop' on this quarter

I.ounsliiiry's face darkened. He was
lightly ironical no longer. He urged
his mount forward. "Don't argue with
me, you Infernal blackguard," lie said.
"You can prove anything you want to j
by a lot of perjuring, thieving hind
grabbers. Don't I know 'em! If you
bled ou this claim yon were hired to j
do it. You hadn't an idea of settling
or building a home. You tlid it for
speculating purposes���nothing else.
And (he law, I happen to know. Is
dead against that You're a shark.
But your game won't work. These
folks are going to stay in this shack
mid on this bend. And you be mighty
careful you don't make 'em any trouble!"
"I'll git a Bismarck lawyer," declared Matthews.
"Yes, and we'll tar and feather the I
shyster. What's more. I'll head n
bunch of Clark's boys, ami we'll wipe
Shanty Town off the face of the earth:"
Matthews raised his sbooldera and
put his tongue in liis che��w "You're
mighty interested in in������ ladies,
seems I' me," he said insinuatingly.
Tlie slur did not escape tlie storekeeper, it determined him to parley
no further, "Hoist your bands!" he
Matthews obeyed. His fingers were
Tlie next command was curt "Mosey !"
The other moved away. When he
was beyond pistol range he produced
his second revolver and waved it above
liis bead. "You jus' wait!" lie shouted.
"Y'ou jus' wail!    I'll lix y'!"
Lounsbury returned bim a mocking

leaned toward Lounsbury
from the window. "What does he
mean by 'fixing you?'" she asked
The storekeeper was still watching
riverward, antl he answered without
turning liis head. "He means it's a
case of shoot on sight," he said.
"Thou you mustn't go near him���you
must go back to Clark's. Promise me
you will! I enn (tike care of Marylyu
till dad comes.    If you got hurt"���
Lounsbury threw one leg over the
pommel and sat sideways for awhile,
buckling antl unbuckling his reins.
When lie spoke it wns very gently, and
again he did not look at her. "Hadn't
you better wrap up a little?" he suggested.    "It's Colli."
She put a coal about Marylyn. "It
ain't right for you lo make our quarrel
yours. You mustn't. I wouldn't hav*
you hurt on our account for anything."
Her eyes heseeclied  bim.
He glanced at her. "It's worth a
lot to kuow you feel that way," he
said slowly. "But���I'm afraid 1 can't
,do what you want. It's your safety
Ithat counts witli me."
Marylyn's face had been hidden to
shut out the dread sight of Matthews.
Now she lifted it. She said nothing.
But as if suddenly smitten by n painful thought she turned from Dallas to
Lounsbury, from Lounsbury to Dal-
'las, questioningly. doubtful. She drew
to one side a few steps and stood
The movement escaped the others.
The storekeeper had slipped from his
lsaddle to pick up Matthews' revolver.
IAud Hie elder girl, against whom was
Isetting In a tide of reaction, was strug-
'gllng for. composure. She put out a
|trembling hand for tbe weapon.
I "Got a rifle, too, haven't you?" he
{   "No.   Dad took it."
"Good heavens! I'm glad I didn't
know that coming down!"
"How'd you happen to come?"
"I saw the sleigh go by and was
sure something had scared your father
j nbout tlie claim. So I didn't wait to
'black my boots."
i   "Oh, it was a comfort to hear you,"
she said.
j "Was it?" eagerly. He stepped toward her, then drew back. "Well,"
I With a feeble attempt at humor, "I'd
I rather be a comfort than a wet blnn-
ket." He hail remembered that evil
i*yes were watching, thnt his least
'move might subject Lancaster's daughters to the coarse comment of Shanty
Town. He da rod uol even remain out

"Oil. you're going to leave us!" exclaimed Marylyn. She began to cry

there was some awful secret behind It

London, Oct. 12.-With the
customary observances in both
houses, parliament opened its
sessions to-day. Measures of utmost importance, in view of social and industrial strife, and the
troubles in the Near East, will
occupy the attention of the legislators. The entire ten weeks'
sitting will be occupied by government measures, the most important of which is the Licensing
Durban, Natal, Oct. 12.-The
first step towards the formation
of a commonwealth of South
Africa was taken to-day when
delegates from Natal, the Transvaal, Cape Colony and the territories ruled by the Chartered
Company, met here to plan a federation of their various governments.
Divergent interests and differences of opinions concerning the
most desirable form of union
threatened at one time to prevent any agreement whatever,
but preliminary exchanges of
ideas and numerous compromises
have removed what looked like
the most serious obstacles and
present indications are for the
adjustment of minor difficulties
that still are outstanding.
Ottawa, Oct. 10.���The financial
statement of the Dominion for
the first half of the current fiscal
year shows a revenue of $40,727,-

on capital account of $14,015,645.
There has been a shrinking of
over eight millions in customs
collections as compared with the
corresponding period a year ago.
Other sources of public revenue
also show a decline, with the exception of that from the post
office, which shows an increase
of $200,000 over last year, despite
the reduction in postal rates.
The total revenue from all
sources for the six months to the
end of September shows a decrease of $9,307,176, whilst the
total expenditures on consolidated fund account increased by
$3,931,210 and the expenditures
on capital account by $4,000,741.
