Aid. Nichoi stated the council had
adopted a resolution in the past to

Aid. -McCallum said It all depended
nn what kind of a bridge was io lie

The aldermen agreed that the new
bridge should be similar to the one
washed out, but planked instead of
being freed with split cedar.
Matter finally left to board of
works, they to luve the bridge put
in during the following week.
Mayor York then intro-iuccd the

Messrs. Chew and Lavallee, members of the Orillia, Ont., syndicate
owning the sawmill at the head of
the lake, returned here on Sunday,
accompanied by their local manager,
W. B. Strathearn. They had been
to Vancouver to spend a holiday
and view the beauties surrounding
Burrsrd Inlet, and camo in here to
definitely settle the location of their
Slocan sawmill. The Bank of Montreal at New Denver and other influences are being brought to bear on
them to retain the mill at its present
site at the head of the lake. However, the syndicate aims to get into
civilization and tho chances ars exceedingly Ai vorablc for them locating
in Slocan.
On Sunday and Monday the party
again went over the proposed site ef
the mill in the bay, and planned off
the ground to suit the mill and yards.
At 11.30 Monday morning they held
a secret meeting with the city council and submitted a proposition to
them, the nature of which will be
made public later on. Just now,
while negotiations are pending, it is
deemed prudent to keep the subject
[.matter quiet. But of the general
outline ofthe company's wants, the
visitors stated thev wanted so acquire
all the land in blocks F, 4, ft, 8, 9,
and half of block 6. This would admit of ample piling and switching
room. It is the idea to cut and season 6,OCO,000 feet of lumber each
year. A market for thc output would
be found in the Northwest Territories.
The syndicate asks lor no bonus and
are quite willing to contribute their
share towards the support of the
school. In fact, they have approached the council iu a most reasonable
and business like manner, and are
aakttttt tor natiiiiig more than fair
and just treatment. And they arc
being met iu the same friendly spirit
by the city dads, whs are putting
forth evcrv effort to get the mill located here.
The visitors stated that should thoy
definitely decide on coming here—
and it certainly louks as if they had
so determined—thev would put in
the most complete plant in the interior of British Columbia. They would
come hers prepared to spend $100,000
at least and employ steadily up
wards of 50 men. In addition to the
sawmill proper, tln»y would establish
all the modern adjuncts for treating
lumber, including shingle, lath, planing, sash and door factories, etc,
forming a combination that will make
a town in itself. Arrangements
would bo made with the C.P.R. for
putting in the necessary sidings, the
aggregate length of which would be
upwards of a mile. In short, the
company is prepared for big things,
and in six months they would have a
portion of their outfit in operation.
Slocan would bo mado their head
quarters and they would not split up,
having everything under local and
direct management.
As an earnest of their good intentions, tha visitors went to Nelson on
Tuesday, nccouipanied by Mayor
York, to arrange with Frank Fletcher
for the acquisition of the desired
land. They would then hasten on to
Orillia and submit the matter to the
full beard ofthe syndicate, and thev
would then advise the council. All
being well, tho proposition will come
before the ratepayers for ratification
In August.

Tom turned round. 'Here, you fel-
lc***r**; get off. Co and stand beside the
chair. Whatever happens, don't Interfere. Well, my lord, the sooner this
event comes off tbe better.' "
He laid down his sword and took off
coat nnd waistcoat, turning up ibe
sleeve of his right arm. Theu he turned to Molly and saluted her. "Mistress
Molly," he snld. with a grin, "you art
going to hnve a very tine sight. Per

Lord Fyllngdale bnd also removed
his conl and waistcoat ami now stood
lu his shirt, with the sleeves rolled up.
Jnst nt that moment the sun rose
swiftly, us Is his manner In this flat
country It wns us If the earth had
leaped Into light In order to give these
swordsjnon a clearer view or each other. They were a strange contrast—Molly's champion erect, pale aud calm,
bis adversary bent ns If with passion,
grasping his sword with eager band.
"He means mischief," repealed the |
gentleman of tbe troop.   "I would tbls
iiiisiness wns ended.   I wonder If the
noble lord can tight,   fie does ool look
afraid anyhow."
"He looks ns If he could feel neither
fear nor anger nor love nor any passion at all.    He  Is nn Iceberg.    Ha.
they are tieglniiliig""
They fnccil each other.
The swonls crossed.   "Look tc yourself." cried loin    "1 will spn you like

"He knows how to fence," tbey whispered. "See! He means to tire his
adversary. He parries everything
Tom thrusts like a madman. Why, he
exposes himself at every lunge. See!
He hns lost his heasl. Oue would think
he was lighting with an automaton
who could only parry."
At the door stood the object and
cause of the encounter—namely, the
glrl-who had brought all this trouble
upon Tom Itlslng's head. She stood
motionless, hardly breathing, watching
the duel ns they say tbe ltomaii women used to watch the fight of the gladiators In the amphitheater and ns I
have seen the Spanish women watch
the men who fought the bulls In their
circus.   I believe that women. In spite
of tbelr tender henrts, are carried
away, out of themselves, by the sight
of mere fighting. It Is a spectacle
which they cannot choose but gaze upon. It shows the true nature of man
ns oppoHi'sl to that of woman. He
stnnds up and risks his life, trusting
■onetimes to his skill, ns In n duel with
swords, ami sometimes to chance, as
on a battlefleld where the bullets are
flying. Molly therefore watched the
fight with gleaming eyes and parted
lips. She was almost ready to forgive
the man who had n'.teuipti'd this In-
Jury for the sake of his courage, am)
she could not siilllclently admire his
adversary for the cohl and Impassive
wny lu which he met eery furious attack, just with a simple turn of the
wrist, as It seeuiesl to her.
Tom wus n strung and lusty fellow,
end ho could fight after his fashion,
which was with thrum upon thrust,
fast snd furious, ns If reckless of himself so that he could engage hla adversary wholly In defense until be
found a moment of weakness.
He had fought many times end hitherto always without n scratch or s
wound, tbe fight nlways ending with
his adversary prostrate. On this occasion, however, he found that every
thrust wns parried, that his adversary
yielded not so much as on Inch of
ground nnd that he had to do with s
wrlsl of Iron nnd the eye of u hawk.
"Jack." snld Molly, "I hope thnt I desired not the death uf the young man,
but I did desire his defeat. It was
splendid to see blm stamping on the
ground snd attacking liko lightning.
But It was more splendid to see his ml*
versa ry Immovable. Ho stood like S
rock. He showed neither passion D0I
eicltemcnt Ho parried every thrust
with Just a turn of his wrist"
The gentlemen on horseback closed In
and looked en. holding their bnath
There wns no longer nny fear on ae
count of their champion. For the first
time In their lives they saw as fine a
master of fence as ever came out of (he
schools of Paris. Meantime the other
man was as oue maddened. He drew
back; be roared like a bull; he rushed
npon his enemy; he panted and gasp
ed. but be continued tbe tight uuduunt
Suddenly his sword flew out of his
hand and fell In the field beside the
"Pick up your master's sword." Lord
Fyllngdale ordered the chairmen.
The spectators lookesl to see Tom
run through on the spot. On the con
trnry, Lord Fyllngdale remained In his
attitude of defense, ne was playlnc
with bis enemy.
"Take your sword," be said.    "You
are at my mercy. But take your sword
man.   We have only Just begun."
Toro received his sword and wiped
i the mud upon his shirt    Then he re-
I newed tbe attack.   But It was wltb less
' confidence.    That   one   should   refuse
1 to finish the duel wben he had disarm
ed his adversary was a thing beyond
Ids experience.
"Tom Is dashed." snld one of tht
company.   "It Is all over with Tom "
It was. After a few more lunges,
parried with the same quiet skill aud
calmness of manner. Tom's sword
once more flow out of his band. Then
tbe duel was over, for l.ord Fyllngdale
made one thrust, and bis sword passed
clean through the right arm at the,
shoulder, passing out at the other side
Tom reeled. Oue of his chairmen ran .

advanced to Molly.
"Madam," be sild, "we are fortu*

rescue. This Is not a place for a lady,
nor is this a sight tbat one would willingly offer you. I trust tbat no violence has been used."
"1 thank your lordship. It was a
horrid sight Ob, do not let tbe poor
man die! He Is a villain, but be bas
failed.   Be merciful."
Then the captain came running un
"Molly!" he cried with the tears running down his fas-e. "Molly, we are
not too late? They haven't married
you? The villain is paid. He is paid,
I take It. ne hasn't married you yet? i
By heaven, If he has 1 will brain i
him witb my cudgel so you shall be a
widow as soon ns a wife."
"Captain, can you nsk me? The man
had a chaise waiting here and would
have forced me Into it But I ran into
tho house and so Into the upper floor,
whither he could not follow. He set
his men to pull off tbe thatch. What
he would Rave done next I know not.
But I could defend myself."
"What is tbat In your hand, Molly?"
It was the knife, which she still held
In readiness. She threw it away. "I
shall uot need It now," she- said.
"Whnt do you think I should bave
done with it?"
"Molly, I know what you would have
done. I said that there was no man ln
England who could marry you against
your will. It was his heart and not his j
shoulder that would bave received the j
knife. My dear, I knew my Molly. I
knew my girl."
Then the other gentlemen crowded
round, offering their congratulations,
no one taking the least notice of the
unlucky Tom, who still lay pale nnd
bleeding on the ground.
It wns Lord Fyllngdale wbo came to
his assistance. "Here, fellow," he or- '
dered the chairman. "Take up your
master and put him In tbe cbalr. So,
and ns for you," he addressed the postboy, "here is a guinea. Drive ns fast

"Will he die?" asked one of the bystanders.
"I should tblnk It not unlikely. His

In It went rattling along the rond, the
jerks and bumps among the ruts beiug
enough to keep the wound open und

Then Lord Fyllngdale called the
chairmen. "Who ore you?" ho nskcsl.
"Uo you belong to the town of Lynn?"
They looked at each other. -Then one
sulsl: "No. We be from Swaffham.

"Put In your poles. You must now
carry the lady back."
"We have done our work," said his
lordship. "It remains for us to escort
Miss Molly home again. Minium, you
can leave this foul den with the consciousness that you nre avenged."
"Indeed I want no revenge."
"Justli*c has been done. Justice Is
uot revcugo. You can now, niailain, go
bnck In the chnlr In which you were
brought here. The villain who miide
the attempt Is already on his wny back.
Since you desire mercy rather than revenge, we must hope that his wound is
not fatal."
So Molly re-entered the chnlr. Then
she wns brought home In triumph. The
captain rode on one side, her champion
on the other; before aud behind rode
ber mounted escort. If she hnd been n
queen, tliey could not hnve shown her

OUD FYLINGDALE resolved to marry Molly.
You    shall   hear   by
what cunning tbls noble and virtuous person,   this   adornment
and boast of tbe peerage, laid bis plans for
securing   the   fortune   and   the   hand
of   our   Molly.     He   had   persuaded
the simple old sailor to believe anything  be chose  to advance;  be  hnd
shown himself In tbe eyes of the girl
that which women admire more than
anything else In the world—possessed
i of fearlessness and skill; be bad also
; shown himself ready to place bis cour-
• age and his skill at the Bervle* and for
; the rescue of a woman.   So far every-
i thing was prepared and In readiness
for the next step.   But there were certain obstacles still iu tbe way.   These
he proceeded to remove.
The Lady Anastasia, after the morning prayers, nt which sbe was a regular attendant, generally returned to her
lodging, where she sat with ber maid
engaged In the Important affairs of the
toilet until dinner. Lord Fyllngdale
was carried to Lady Anastasla's lodging In tlie market place.
The lady dismissed her maid. "You
have something to tell me, Ludovlc,"
sbe said. "1 cannot tell from your face
whether you are going to deal truthfully. I bave had experience of tbe other
way.   Now, what Is It?"
"What I bave come to say la Important. Anastasia, In this matter I have
given you my entire confidence. There
have been, I own, occasions when 1
bave been compelled— But all that Is
over. I now confide absolutely In you
and in you alone. My Interests are
"You hsve already given me that assurance." Sbe Implied, perhaps, by
these words that the assurance and
the fact were not Identical.
"What can I give you except my as
"Nothing, truly. But, pray, go on. 1
hear that you hnve been playing the
part of the knight errant and fighting
for distressed damsels. I laughed
when I beard of it Yon to flgbt on the
side of the angels! Where are your
wings, my Ludovlc?"
"The thing happened exactly as I
could bave wished. The country bumpkin who carried her off had no knowledge of fence. He could only lunge,
and be was balf drunk. There was a
great appearance of desperate fighting
Deeause he was mad with drink and
disappointment. I played with the fellow long enough to make a show of
eournge and danger, .then I pinked
"Is he dead?"
"I believe that be Is in some kind ot
fever. Well, Annstasla, the result of
the affair Is thnt I have now arrived
nt perfect confidence on the part of my
old friend the guardian."
"And with the girl':"
"The girl matters nothing. Tho first
part of the business Is done. Y'ou can
now go back to London"—
"To go back to London?" she replied
"You have done all I wanted done
here. You have given me a very good
character. Y'ou have charmed the people of the spa. You have flattered the
girl and Inspired her with discontent
Why should you stay any longer?"
"To be sure, I am at great expense,
and the bank Is In a poor way. But
what are you going to do?"
"Anastasia," he sat down and took
her hand. "I  have inquired carefully
into the whole business.   There Is ne
, doubt, none whatever, that the girl Is
far richer than even her guardian un-
' derstands.   She has a huge Income, a
greet accumulation of money and, what
' Is more, a collection of jewels which la
: in Itself a large fortune.   Go bnck ts
j London tomorrow or next day.   Then
sit down and write a letter Inviting the
girl to stay at your house.    Bid her
bring with her nil her jewels and fln-
> ery.   I, for my part, will urge tho captain to let her accept the Invitation."
"All this is very clrcumstantlaL
What then?"
"I will promise the captain to find
her a husband, a man of position, a
man of rank, nnd, above all, one as
virtuous as myself." Ho' said this
without the least blush or even a
'Where   is   thnt   husband   te   be
"As yet I do not know,   ne must be
' a creation of our own.   no must not
( know; he must simply obey.   We shall
find such a person somewhere.  I have,
i 1 believe, a good mnny of my former
friends   ln   tho   fleet   or   the   king's
! bench.   Now, Anastasia, to find one of
these   unfortunates,  to  offer   him   an
allowance,  say a guinea a week, In
ri'turn for a power of attorney to administer  the   property.    True,   there
are the creditors, but we might take
over the detainers,    ne must not be
suffered to get out."   Ho went on suggesting deceits nnd villainies.
"You said 'we.' What have I to do
with the scheme? It Is, you must confess, Ludovlc, one of those arrangements or understandings which tbe
world calls a conspiracy"—
Lord Fyllngdale released her hand.
Hit words pained his sensitive souL
"If at this time, after all we have done
together, we are to talk of conspiracies, wo had better act separately," he
said coldly.

A Uomlalsasoolaty—How tho Kipontai
of the Aonual JUsstlng aud Itoourda Aro
The Boyal Society of !anasla,
which met in Toronto from May '20
to 29 at Toronto University, wus.
formed for the purpose of uniting in
lhe friendly bonds of literature and
science those whsi In all the provinces
of Canada have most distinguished
themselves in those brunches of mental gctlvfty. The charter of the
Koyal Society ol ihe •mother country seems to have been the model
followed, and, although that society
hus oi late years neglected literature,
th..* Canadian society bus given more
weight to thut form ssf culture than
lo tbo applied sciences.
It ought to be generally known
lb it the society is by it9 ■■ institution limited in numbers, lt is not a
society, like those which evl.tl In
('real Britain and in the United
states of America, which thc general
public ale Invited to join. .mo. >y association uid in tbo advancement Jf

valuable societies which exist in most
large cities for the cultivation Of
Mime special subject, which till cua
join «ho declare their Interest In
that pursuit. To become a member
ono must already have become distinguished in some branch of learning, have made original investigations in science or published works
of literary merit. Nominations must
be mado a year before election, unsl
tho qualification of each new candidate for the honor of becoming a
memlei of the society are -,iuii-d by
tho proposer and seconder, printed
ami distributed, so that the ballot
may be taken after a full discussion
of the merits of the person propose*:!.
Nor is this an idle form. The bibliographical volume of the Hoyal Society's proceedings gives long lists
of the printed works of all the members, covering the widest laige of
subjects, from poetry to statistics,
from noiels to treatises of I hye.es.
The meetings are annual, ssnd, this
being a Dominion society, are equally held at Ottawa, but as the Principal of the Toronto University was
the President for 1902 It was
thought a fitting compliment io Mr.
Loudon that the meeting of the year
should be held in thc city where he

past week than for some time previously. There is a general com-
plaint, however, that the public is
not Interested In wheat at present,
| and tlio market is loft more to whut
is colled Hi,, professional element,
and without a widespread buying on
the part oi l ho public it is diaacult
to arouse enough buying enthusiasm
to advance prices materially, so thut
while markets huvo been activo and

sees prices *[c to lie lower than a
Week ago. It bus been a mixed market' sometlmoB tlio future deliveries
huve been the strongest, then again
the cash or duly delivery would bo
stronger than tbo futures, the result
on the week is that the spreasl between the duly und the September
nnd December deliveries has narrowed
fully ic.
Manitoba wheat has been rather
dull all week, except that there has
boon a fair demand lor spot wheat

BUTTER—Dairy—Supplies are in.

increase of $5,500,000 compared with

, three million dollars has been added
, to the public debt of the country.
