The doctor blushed ant] glanced uneasily at the captain.
"I asked hlm if be could pick that
womnn out of a crowd," said the cnptnln, "and he told me tbat be didu't
know: he couldn't be sure."
"I fancied that It might have been
something of the sort," rejoined
Brenda.   "And now, Captain"—
Sbe paused, and tbe olllcer supplied
the uame.
"Captain Neale, at jour service,*"
aaid he, wltb a bow.
"Thank you. And now, Cnptnln
Nenle. I wish you would get the message from the hospital for which you
are waiting as quickly aa you can, for
I am Impatient to go there."
"I'm expecting It any minute," he replied.   "Ah, perhaps this Is It."
A tall young man of a German type
of countenance, wltb wide blue eyes,
entered the room nnd stood by the
door, as If be hnd no erm ml. but bad
simply been Impelled by a gentle, su-
L>''i'lor force. There was silence for
b.'iP," a minute, Then the cnptnln advanced to the young mno snd led blm
by the arm Into the vestibule.
"Wbat are you here for, Blmen-
dorfy" lie demanded in s low voice.
"Headquarters don't need to mix up
In this case.   I enn look out for It."
"Orders.'' replied Elmeudorf. "That's
all I know. Tbe chief wonts a report."
"Well, hell get one. won't he?"
asked the captain. "Now, see here;
dou't take a step till 1 say so. 1 know
what I'm about."
Elmendorf strolled Into tbe room and
eat down in a large cbalr. wltb a sigh.
Then, perceiving tbat Brenda was
Standing, be rose hastily, very much
to tbe young lady's surprise.
"By the way." said the captain,
"while we're waiting I want to ask
you about Mr. Alden. We've sent word
to his otlice, but be Isn't there. They
don't know where he's gone. You knew
hlm quite well, didu't you? I noticed
how quick yon recognized bis band-
"Yes." said Brenda, "1 knew blm
quite well."
"And you knew Miss Miller?"
"I never Raw her." replied Brenda
nfter a moment's hesitation.
"Why, Miss Williams," exclaimed
Neale, with a grotesque attempt to
speak softly, "I thought you aaid you
were a friend of hers!"
"I hardly knew what to say to the
policemen at tbe door," replied Brenda
calmly. "I was very anxious tn get lu.
And let me add that I am ut present
very anxious to get out."
"Just one mluute." snid the captain.
"Ynu knew Mr. Alden. .Now. did you
hnppen to know of tiny young woman
that he was particularly sweet on?"
"I have heard." replied Brenda slowly, "thnt he was at oue time engaged
to a girl who had a grent deal of money
and some social standing, but 1 understand tbnt that hns beeu broken off. It
can have uo possible bearing upon this
crime, which was plainly the work of
a thief."
"You're thinking of the money," snld
Neale. caressing bis projecting chin
with a great. si|ii»rc hand, "the money
Alden Is alleged to bave put Into the
letter. It cnu't be found, nud that's a
"Is alleged to have put Into ibe letter!" exclaimed Brenda. "Wby. he
says so himself."
"Yes." responded the cnptnln, "that's
what be says."
An Intervnl of silence followed. Brenda wns leaning forward, her right linnd
restlug on tbe table, her eyes Intent
upon the officer's face. Tbe"* were
gray eyes ordinarily, and their expression spoke of the cultivated self restraint by which the natural dilutions
are held ln check. On this occasion,
bowever, they seemed to be of a dark
blue and to emit a light Wblcb even
Or. Blair, who saw thu lady lu profile,
did not fall to perceive.
OME one put a key Into tbe lock of tbe
front door, nnd the
faint sound of It wns
distinctly audible In
tbat room. The growling voice of h policeman In the ball said:
"Hold on!   You can't go"—
And seemingly In the same Instant a
young man appeared upon the threshold of the room. He took two steps
forward and then baited, the others
faciug blm.
He was one of those men whose tremendous vital energy declares Itself
unmistakably. As he stood there, perfectly still, the power within blm seemed to affect the air. It wus as when one
feels tbe tension of an engine tbat is
at rest, but ready. Wben such a man
advances, neither the ordinary obstacles nor even bis own will can stop
"Brenda!" he snld In a slngulnrly re-
strulnel voice, very 111 suited to his
words. "Why In tbe nnme of heaven
are you here'/"
"If 1  know," she nnswered, "It waa
bes'iinse I wanted to help ber. because
I couldn't have her die like this.   I"—
"Where Is she?"
"Tliey bave taken her to a hospital-
fit Winifred's."
The young man snatched up bis hat.
which had fallen to the lioor.
"Wait a minute:" exclaimed IVeaie.
"You're Alden-Clarence M. Alden?"
"Well, I want to talk to you. Waltl
If you go down there, you can't get ia
nor find out anything; that's orders.
You'll get more information here."
"Is she living?" demanded Alden.
"Yes," replied the captain. "If abe
diea, I shall know of It within five minutes, and that's quicker than you could
learn of It anywhere else. Let me manage this. I'll take good care of you.
I'll see that you get every word of
newa. Meanwhile let'B get down to
business.   You sent that note to her?"
"I did."
"With $000 In itr
"Yes." ""• . * '"".''
"At teu minutes after 2 I sent It by
John Robins.hi, a clerk tn my otfi«."
"Where la he now?"
"I dou't know," answered Alden. "1
didn't wait for him to come back.
Now, answer my question. Wbo did
this thing?"
Neale spread his hands abroad with
a grotesque gesture intended to disclaim the possession of tbe information.
"We're all at sea." he said. "Somebody got Into tbis room aud stabbed
the girl with this knife."
He suddenly lifted a newspaper that
bad lain on the table and disclosed
the weapon beneath It. Tbe long
blade was open and visibly stained
with blood. Brs-mla's band luul been
within six Inches of It. and at the
sight she started back witb sucb alarm
thnt Dr Blair stretched out hie nu.
to support her. She did not fall, bow
ever, but stood rlgisl. staring nt Aldea.
The eolot rushed to his face. He pui
up his bund und pushed hack the tan-
jrle of light brown hair that was lying
moist upon bis forehead.
*'Recognize It?" said Neale. wltb his
mirthless grin.
"It is mine." replied Alds-n In the
same repressed nnd steady tone tii.it
be had used throughout this scene.
"I gave It to her."
"a few days ago." said Aldeo. "!
don't exactly remember."
"Queer present. ' rejoined the cap-
taiu. "for a girl.'
"She was cutting some pictures «...t
of tbe magazines." replied A Idea, I
happened to bave tbe knife in my
pocket. She used tt, aud I didn't tnke
It back."
The captain slowly nodded his bend,
as one who bas reached tbe end of a
topic and Is preparing for the next.
"Aad now." said be. •how lung have
you known this young latl.vV"
He waved his bund toward Brenda.
"I have known Miss Machine a Ions
time." said Alden. "Why do you ask'*"
"Miss Maclane, eb?" suid the captain, elevating the strange tufts of
parti colored hair tbat were his eyebrows. "I understood that her name
was Williams."
"I have done an absurdly foolish
tblng," said Brenda, addressing Ahlen.
"I was afraid my name would be published, and ao 1 tried to deceive these
people." '
"Big mistake." rejoined Captain
Neale, shaking bla bead solemnly.
"This whole story will bave to come
out, and If tbe facts are known to the
police at the start It will come out
straight; otherwise there's uo telling
what tbe reporters will do wltb It."
"There Is no reason whatever." said
Alden, "why Miss Machine should be
brought Into tbla affair."
"There isn't, eb?" aaid tbe captain.
"Wby ls sbe here? Sympathy for a
woman that abe says sbe uever saw?
No; I guess we'll have to bave something better."
"If you don't get It," aaid Alden.
"wbat then?"
"I'll have to hold her as a witness."
"You menu that you will put me under arrest?" demanded Brenda, her
face aud even her lips absolutely colorless.
"I'll have to," said tbe captain.
"And suppose that I answer all your
questions now?" she asked.
Neale atruck his band down upon tbe
"You can go borne Just as aoon ss
you've done It," be declared, aud nt
that moment a man in plain clothes,
but with thc unmistakable stamp of
the police upon blm, entered thc room
and sainted bis superior.
"Excuse me for a minute," aaid
Neale, and, accompanied by the mau
who had Just appeared upon the scene,
be sts.pped out Into the hall.
Rri'iialii turned to Dr. Blair, wbo wus
leaning against the mnntelplece.
"Dr. Blair." she whispered, "you will
not sny that it wns I whom you saw
leaving tbls bouse?"
"No," replied the physician slowly;
"I will not."
"What does this mean?" demanded
Alden. j
Dr. Blnlr regnrded Alden steadily for!
some seconds bssfore he said with that
careful measuring of words tbat doctors learn:
"I have Informed the police thnt ns I
wns passing this bouse, very near io
lhe time when this deed was done. I
saw a person—a woman—come out and
walk away hurriedly toward Broadway." I
"A woman!" repeated Alden, as If
speaking without volition.
"She ennnot be accounted for," con-
tinned the doctor. "No oue knows who
she Is or why she was here or how she
got Into thc house. As to tbe Inst
point, however, I will say this: I had a
room ln this house for a few weeks
while repairs were In progress at No.

the spring lock on tbe front door did

not always hold. If the lock has not
been repaired, there mny be an explanation of some mysterious points iu
tbls case."
If tbere had been an eye upon Detective Elniondorf at this moment, It
would bave uoted tbat he was much
Interested, but uo oue was looking at
blm. He himself wus observing Brenda closely.
Alden bad begun to pace tbe floor,
hla band upon bis forehead.
"I can't stay here any longer," be
aaid suddenly. "I must see Elsie. I
must know— Jack! How came yon
Tbe question was addrcf-ied to a
young man who entered v lib Captain
Neale. He was In his normal state e
rather handsome fellow, with the ox
eves that tbe Greek* dred (for wo
men) and a broad forehead above them,
but ln tbls moment bis face was distorted wilh exeiietneut and striped
witb perspiration that trickled from
his forehead. Tlie total effect was
somewhat grotesque, especially because the man was Inclined to fatness
and was a trifle conspicuous In the
matter of attire.
"This Is dreadful, dreadful!" he cried.
"I can't believe it."
"You're Mr. Robinson, who carried
the note to Miss Miller," said Neale.
"That's why 1 sent a man to your
"Yes," said Robinson, turning to Alden. "I didu't go hack to the ofliee Immediately. I went over to the place
where I live. 1 was Just going down
town again wben a policeman met me
at the door."
"Did you know what was ln that
note?" asked Neule.
"I knew ihere waa money," was the
reply, "but I did: t know how much.
It was sealed wheu Mr. Alden g. * It
to me. He said there was money in lt
That was wby I brought It iusiead of
giving It to a messenger boy."
"What happened here?" tbe captain
"Nothing," answered Robinson. "I
gave the note to I'Isle"—
"To whom?" sc -I the captain.
"To Miss Miller: that Is what I said.
I gave the note to Miss Miller, aud she
•pined It by the window. 1 didu't see
any money. I wasn't in tbe room ten
seconds—merely long enough to ask If
there was any answer, and she said no.
Then I went away."
"Meet anybody?"
"The servant wbo let me In was passing through tbe I all as 1 went out."
"That's Important," said the captain.
"It fixes you all right. Tbo servant
stopped at Miss Miller's door, knocked,
asked a question nnd got an answer.
Tben she went along down stairs."
"Fixes me!" gasped Robinson. "Is
anybody crazy enough to think 1 did
"No," said tbe captain. "You're out
of It. And now, Mr. Alden. let me tell
you that I've Just bad a report from the
hospital. Tbe girl Is alive, and the doctors think she has a fair chance."
"What does she say?" exclaimed Robinson.
"She hasn't said anything yet," replied the captain. "And now let's get
on with our littlo affairs here. I guess
you can't help uh uuy, Mr. Robinson,
so If you'll Just take a sent In tho parlor"— Ho waited till the young man
hnd pnssed out of the room. "Now,
Miss Muclane, I'd like to know a little
more about you If It's perfectly agreeable."
"I am tbe daughter of Duncan Mac-
lane," said Brenda.
At tbe meutlou of thla wealthy aud
widely knowu man Neale softly whistled.
"It ain't possible," he said, "that you
are the young lady with a lot of money
nnd n high social position tlmt you
muutloued nwhlle ngo as beiug engaged to our friend bere?"
"1 am the woman," replied Hreuda.
"Aud the engagement'! been broken
off?   When?"
"Cuptaln"— began Alden, but the officer rnlsed his baud.
"A bargain's a bargain." he snld. "1
wns to hnve the truth. When wus the
"iigagetnent broken off?"
"Tbls afternoon," nnRws>re,l  ltremla
firmly.   "1 went down to Mr. Ald"n's
ollice at half past 1.   I hnd expected to
See hlui Inst evening, but"—
"He didn't come?"
Brenda Inclined her head.
"1 went to his otlice," she said, "and
In tbe conversntlsin between us there
I relcnMd bin, from his engngumeui."
"Thut must huve been u bnrd blow
for you, Mr. Alden," said the captain.
•What do yon mean?" demanded
I Alden. "If you have the delicacy to
! appreciate my feeling"—
•I wns thinking especially about
1 your businesa." said Neale. "I'm told
'your (inn Is in the hist ditch, nud tbat
yonr engagement to Duncan Mas-Jane's
daughter Is about all that holds you
Up. That's what my man told me Just
•He told you a Ile." aaid Alden, but
with the same monotonous tone, ns If
his utterance was mechanical and his
mind upon another matter. "My affairs
svere nevor before so prosperous as
they are toslny."
"That won't do." responded the captain.   "I have positive proof"-
••You kuow notblng ubout It." Bald
Alden. "1 have other Interests than
those of my firm"
"What other interests?"
"1 decline to answer."
"Where did you go wben you left
your ollice ufter sending that note?"
"1 will uot tell you."
"Why not?" queried the captain In
his most persuasive tone. "Ob. perhaps you don't know theso other gentlemen. They'll step Into the hall or
out on to tbe balcony. I've uo doubt."
"It will make no difference" replied
•What you say will be confidential.
of course."
"Captain Neale." said Alden. "this Is
n business secret that Is worth n good
deal of money. If I should tell It to
nny man. be could force payment for
his silence."
"Yon don't mean to say tbat I'd do a
thing like thut'." demanded Neale.
"1 have uo wish to offend." suid Alden. "but you wnnt the truth, and you
shall have* It. Your reputation, like
that of many another man high up ln
the department. I* had-as bud us It
can be. Remembering thai this business matter Involves others thou myself. 1 won't trust you with a hint of It.
That Is my Inst word on that subject."
Nenle's face ttirtiesl red aud white ln
strange, Irregular spots.
"Now hear a word from me," he
said. "I've lieen looking you op. You
Hie a ruined mun Ynu were eugaged
to this girl, aud It was all that saved
you. But you couldn't be honest even
witb her. You made love to this Elsie
Miller, and you neglected Miss Mac-
lane, and she wouldn't stand for it.
But by that tline you •were so Involved
with Miss Miller that you couldn't
breuk away. So what did you do?
Why, you wrote her a note telling a
fairy story about a lot of money, knowing that the note would be found und
would make the case look like robbery.
You told her how busy you were, and
five minutes afterward yon quit work
and came up town. You bud a key to
this house; you came here"—
"Do you mean to accuse me of this?"
The words came from between Al-
den's teeth, and he strode toward Neale,
who put the table between them and
drew bis revolver.
"Wallace!" be called.
A policeman entered from tbe hall.
"That man ts under arrest" aaid
Neale.   "Take him iu."
"Tbls is monstrous," said Alden, bnt
be spoke coolly. "You shall answer
for lt."
"We'll talk about that Inter," rejoined the captain. "You go with that
Brenda crossed tbe room quickly aud
took Alden's band.
"I will do everything that I can for
you," she said, "and for her."
"Yeu're coming along, too," said
Neale. "No; I'll stand by wbat I said.
Go home."
Alden opened bis mouth to speak and
then closed It again. He tnrned and
went out of the room with the poliCO*
man, Brenda fs.liowlng Immediately
and Dr. Rlalr a moment later. Klmen-
dorf nnd Neale remained.
The captain dropped iuto a chnlr.
"I dou't know as I doue right," he
Elmeudorf walked across the room
and looked at a picture o:i the wall between the windows. It was a photographic copy of Nolersteiu's painting
of "Tantalus." Tbe unfortunate king
who divulged the secrets of Zeus was
represented chained to the rock starving while the fruit laden boughs wnved
just beyoud his reach. It was a painful picture, quite out of keeping wltb
all else In the room, and Elraendorf regarded It curiously. A few lines, telling the legend, were printed below,
and the detective read them.
"Well, he looks It," he snld, glancing up at the face of Tnutalus. "And.
by the way, Neale, you don't think Alden did this thing, do you?"
"Not on your life!" said the onptsln.
"The case Is perfectly plain. It may
be that I didn't do the smart thing."
Elmeudorf turned away.
"Arresting a man for murder Jin-t because he calls you a thief wheu you
know yeu are one," said he, "Isn't exactly my Idea of wisdom."
Neale sprang to hla feet and faced Klmendorf augrlly.
"Not with me, Joe Neale," snld thc
detective.   "It won't work."
"St. Winifred's," replied Brenda.
"Please tell him to drive fust."
Alden guve the order and then, addressing the young womnn, snld: "1
shall tie there soon. They dare not
hold me."
Brenda would hava spoken, but the
horse suddenly started under the whip,
and tbe cab lurched on the tough pavement. The last glimpse of Alden lifting his httt while the huge pollcemun
gripped his left arm remained wltb
Brenda like a persistent nightmare that
survives the dawn. The conventional
courtesy Btuck In her mind. It was a
little picture of the old days, the time
of small pleasures and easy living, so
sharply brought to an end. Everything in life had suddenly become difficult. Words must bo weighed and
one's conduct guided by a plan, not left
to mold Itself Into the forms of mere
usage. And thus she came to think of
what sbe should do and sny at the hospital. How meet the emergencies tbat
might arise? Had Elsie regained her
senses? Had she spoken, or did she lie
dead at that moment tn some small,
bare room, watched by a stolid muse
wbo yawned and stretched herself as
the day's work drew to a close? A portrait ln a velvet frame—Elsie's mother
beyoud a doubt-recurred sharply to
Bieuda's memory, and 6he shuddered.
It had stood on the dressing table-a
womau not yet old; a pretty, smiling
face. It wns dreadful to think of tbat
fuce smiling there all tbat afternoon,
the eyes looking, yet seeing nothing,
the lips unable to utter a cry.
"1 must put It out of my mind," said
Brenda to herself.
At the hospital there was little to be
learned; nothing to be done. An tlder-
ly man wbo seemed to be In authority
said: "The child Is still living. We
cannot predict tho ultimate result of
the Injury as yet. You ennnot see hpr
nor seud uny message. Leave your address, and we will communicate with
you In accordance with the event,
whatever It may be. It will be useless
to wait. If you are able to see her ut
all. there will be no great pressure of
Brenda rode to her home, nnd ns tbe
cab drifted through the clamoring
■vhlrliiooU of tbe 4 venue Bhe was
thinking that t!..* white haired man
had spoken almost tenderly of Elsie as
"the child."
There wa.s no mother In the Maclane
mansion. She had been dead ten
yenrs. There was an aunt, an amiable
old lady for whom Brenda entcrtalne-d
no little affection, but lu tbe serious
affairs of life she would as readily
have tnkeii counsel with her brother,
wbo was not yet 12. Her fnther. for
so strong a man as he was In tbe
world of finance, wns a weak man nt
home. He had no gift of sympathy, a
deficiency wblcb may have accounted
for both the strength and the weakness. Brenda tolsl him the story of
her adventures as It has been bere set
forth, and he received It with painful
surprise and lively alarm.
"Why did you go there?" he exclaimed. "Wbat possible Interest
could you have In this wretched girl?"
"My dear father." she replied, with
an excellent counterfeit of a smile,
"let me remind you that my affection
for Mr. Allien has been the one sincere emotion of a sadly artificial life.

Thai  Growth  ot (lsi* Acurn.
The ncorn is tlie fruit of the oak.
The Boos.1 germ is a very imall object
nt the pointed end of the ncorn, with
tlu* future root uppermost. The neon
drops, nnd Us contents doubtless undergo Important molecular nud chemical changes while It lies under winter
covering of leaves or snow. In the
mild warmth of tprlug the ncorn
swells, the little root elongates, emerges
from the end of the shell and, no mat*
ter what the position of the ncorn,
turns downward. The root penetrates
the soil two or three lni'lis's belore the
xtniii begins to gliow lt.seif ami grow
upward, The "moat" of the acorn
nourishes both root and stalk, and two
years may pass before its store of food
' is entirely exhausted.
At the end of a year the youug oak
has n root twelve to eighteen Inches
long, with numerous shorter rootlets,
the stall; being from islx to eljfhl Inches
high, In this stage It differs from the
tree. To watch these transformations
under the leii3 ls a fascinating occupation.

Human chanK'ti-r infliioiics.il by
ideas of integrity will not bemean itself, cvon iii mining matters. Some
nn.n csiunt it a small tiling to iii.s1b-.k1
the public through .i newspaper by
wrongfully lvpoitiiu* nlioiit a property,
their Idea being to attract atta'iition at
any hazard. No camp without merit
can win prosperity, and the Slocan is
a country that will of itself attract attention at all times if tlie plain troth
Ik? uttered'crf its rusourcvs. Dishonesty
in idl walks of life, and milling is nut
excepted, ends sooner or later in disaster and oblivion.
Members of the Dominion house of
commons, irrespective of polities, have
agreed to put an end to electoral corruption, a step that should have Ixjen
1 alien years ago. If Conservatives
.erred when in control of the govern-
nis'ut uiachiuery, how much more so
have the Lilx*nds in the years they
have been in the seats of power, federal as well as provincial. To such an
extent has political corruption been
carried,that the good name of Canada
is l-»i3i-jg held up to ridicule and direful shame iimon'j civilized nations.
Party Bigotry should never lie permitted to Overrule conscientious scruples
of honesty; neither should it Ihi allowed to gloss over the wrongdoings of
friends while condemning similar
faults jn opponents.
Nothing of an alarming or radical
nature appears in the speech from the
throne deliver«l at the opening of tho
legislature on Thursday last. Anything of a fiercely controvertible nature appears to have been studiously
avoided, doubtless owing to the uncertain quantity of the government
support. The main issues foreshadowed are the skeleton of a compulsory
arbitration measure, re-adjustmenl oi
mineral taxation, re-enactment of the
anti-Mongolian legislation,and a gen-
tie hitit tu to railway propositions.
The latter are so feebly presented thai
there is not much likelihoo.l of the
BChemea being seriously pushed. But
it is the labor legislation that commands attention, it occupying the first
place on the legislative bill of ..fare.
The numerous imd comprehensive disturbances in business ami industrial
circles since the first of the year have
brought the affairs of the province to
Mich a pass that the government was
forced to meet the issue. At the same
time the government is taking a stand
on the question much in advance of
what niost people would have looked
for, and one that will make capital
campaign ammunition should the
house dissolve. The success of the
conciliatory board of the Provincial
Mining Association iu the Fernie
trouble has doubtless prompted tin'
govi'i-iiiiient to give a rimilarbodya
legal status. While not exactly com*
pulsory arbitration in fact, th" pro-
posed law aeknowli'dgi's ;lnsl accepta
the principle by declaring all strikes
and lockouts illegal until all the re-
s<»irc"s ,,f the conciliatory board hnve
been exhausted, ami it will provide for
the publication under certain circumstances of evidence adduced. It is
believed the meajrate will work smoother and with greater effect thin the
more drastic law of New Zealand. The
act will be pressed at once so as to
make it applicable to present troubles
in Vancouver nnd Ladysmith. Should
the law prove a success, and it is .sincerely hopod.it will, the country will
have just cause to remember the
fourth session of the ninth legislature.
As there is not much trouble in sight,
the session should be short, the main
point being the passing of the estimates. That done, tlie legislators
■should Ih. sent home.

no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his

Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
