A. Campbell Reddie, deputy provincial secretary, wrote, under d te
of August 19, as follows: "In my letter of 20th of July, I mentioned that
the payment due the municipality,
under sections 14 and 15 of the Slocan
Incorporation Act, 1901* was receiving the attention ofthe troasury.and
on receipt today of vour further communication of the 13th iust., in respect to tlie aforesaid matter, I referred, it to the deputy minister of finance, who writes in reply as follows:
'The returns from the assessor and
chief license, inspector will no doubt
be in in time so that the refund may
be available by the 17th September.
I will write today to the assessor to
hurry up the returns.'"
A communication was also read
from Thomson Bros., Nelson, re citv

Copyright 1899 by the Author.
"Oh, how dared she?" Mary burst
ont. Mr. Stacey looked nt her with a
▼ague sense of amusement. "I assure
you, Miss—well, never mind her name-,
it is immaterial, but Miss Blank we
will call her—thought very small potatoes of me. I can't write by hand.
I've got writer's cramp, and I have always a terrible lot of work in hand. If
I bad gone on with Miss Blank, I
■hould have been as dead as a doornail
by this time. She could not do my
work without ironing it ont as she
went along, so that every vestige of
style and individuality was eliminated
Mary gave a little gasp. "But I
thought she took down whnt you dictated," she said almost breathlessly.
"Yes. but if she saw what she thought
eras an error she su always kind
enough to mend it for me," said Alan
Stacey, smiling at the remembrance.
"She knew just a little too mnch for
' ma She must have been overeducated
or something. My last helper had, on
the contrary, no ideas. He had a notebook and a sharp pointed lead pencil.
When I was in form, he was excellent.
When I had to get a certain amount of
copy turned ont by a certain time nnd
I hadn't so mnch as the ghost of an idea
in my head, he used to sit on the edge
of a chair waiting till I did get an idea.
If he would have read the newspaper,
gone to sleep, walked about the garden;
if he would have yawned even, I should
not have minded, but he never did. He
said once it was all in the day's work
whether he worked or waited So, when
I couldn't work, he waited. I had to get
rid of him. I found him an excellent
billet and swore I would never have un-
other helper of any kind. Then my hand
came in and said 'No; I'm hanged if
you shall use me. I'm delicate.' So I

"I am not afraid." wid Mary, smiling. This man was wholly delightful
to her, surrounded by a halo of romance, still young, strong, unconventional and wholly hnman.
"Have you seen anyjaf my work!'
he asked.
"I have read the 'Lover's Creed a
dozen times at least." she answered.
"Ah I Then you will to a certain extent understand me.   I should need yon

"Yon would lnnch here—by the bye.

"In Bloomsbury."
"That's a far cry."
"I should seek for rooms in this

"Still better. Yon are married, Mra
"My name is Conway." she said
gently. "I am a widow."

"None—nor a sin*j|* relative in all

"Poor little soul I" *The words slipped
ont unconsciously, as if he were thinking alond. "Then about terms."
"I will take what yon are accustomed to pay," said Mary.
"I have, let ns say, 2 guineas a
week," he returned hurriedly.
"Bnt won't yon try me first?" sain
Mary, rather taken aback by this unceremonious way of arranging the matter.
"No, na    Your speed is 120,  and
yon look as if yon wonld jnst suit ma "
"Bnt my references!" she exclaimed.
"Mra  Conway," ssid the novelist,

ly at her, "I wonld jnst as soon not see
yonr referencea I know too well tbe
lies one tells when one wants to pass
some one on to one's friends. I know
too well what they are worth. Yonr
last employer died, yon tell me"—
"But it mightn't bo true," she faltered.  "I wonld really rather"—
"Do yon want a character with me T"
he broke ia
"Bnt .everybody knows you," she
cried ingenuously. "Everybody has
read yonr books."
"I wish they did. I should make a
decent income then. No, no, Mrs. Conway. I know what I am and what I'm
not. I know my own limitations and
exactly what I am capable of. It's my
business to read character. You may
not suit me as a secretary, bnt only
time can show and prove that So fas
U yon yourself are concerned, honesty

Mary could not help starting. Alan
Stacey continued: •'Yon give yourself
away continually becunse you cannot
conceal your real feelings. In a sense
you are bad for yourself because you
cannot dissemble. Yon couldn't tell a
downright lie if you tried, and you are
so honest that yon wouldn't try."
"I do hate lies." snid Mnry in a tone
as if such a fact were rather to her
detriment than otherwise.
"Let me look at yonr hand. Yes; it
is capable—precise, upright and highly
nervous. We shall be able to work together very well, I am certain. At all
events, let ns try tomorrow morning."
"Mr. Stacey," said Mury, rising as
she apoke, "I will do my very best."
"We shall get on splendidly," he replied, holding out his hand. "I am doing a particularly difficult piece of work
just now, a most difficult subject, in
which the handling is everything, the
whole difference between success and
failure. I was writing with my fist-
yes, donbled up so—in despair, when
my servant told me you were here.
LcJok at this"—spreading out his bund
and showing an angry swollen red ridge
of muscle which rose between the first
and second fingers nnd extended beyond
the wrist. "That means the intensest
and most exquisite agouy. It seems to
disappear above the wrist and to rise
again in the underside of the arm,
from where it runs in a rope of pain to
the very armpit"
"It must be horrible," said Mnry
"Are you working now?'
"I was when you came.'
"Why don't you let me begin right
away, sir?" she ventured to say.
He looked at her again with tho same
quick, alert glance as before. "Don't
call me 'sir,'" he said, half amused
and half irritable.
"I always called Mr. Desmond so.'
she said meekly.
"He had an office and a lot of clerks;
tbat was different I don't require that
kind of thing. One 'sir' wonld upset
me for a morning. Come into my study
I like you for tackling the work straight
away.  We'll try how it goea "
Mary followed him into the study, a
long, low ceiled room with many books,
a few pictures, some guns, fishing rods,
golf clubs, two luxurious sofa lounges
and half a dozen capacious chairs. A
rough terrier dog lay before the open
window and a big Angora cat, brindled
like a bulldog, was in possession of a
fur rug before the empty fireplace It
was a revelation to Mary Conway—she
had never seen such a room in all her
life befora
She established herself at a table and
they began She was amazed at the
ease and rapidity with which Alan
Stacey poured out his story, taking it
np at the last written word and spinning it ont in the most vivid and interesting way, almost, indeed, acting it all.
So for nearly two hours they worked
without a hitch, until the servant came
to say that luncheon was served. Alan
Stacey drew a long breath and rose to
his feet
"Come to lnnch," he said. -'I used
to have ideas about not interrupting
the flow of genius—but I take my meals
at regular times now—it pays better
all round Do yon think you've got all
"I think so," said Mary "If yon
will allow me, I will transcribe it after
lunch so that yon can see for yourself.'
To Mary's surprise the table was only
laid for two persona It was essentially
a man's table; it was small and was
spread with a nice clean cloth and serviettes; its dominant note was a cruet
"Take that seat" said Alan Stacey,
with a gesture to a chair. "It will be
a simple lnnch, I warn yon. If I eat a
big meal now, I am no good for the rest
of the day. Some people like a regular
dinner at midday. I believe it means
apoplexy if you only eat enough and
sleep soon enough afterward. What
have you today, John?"
"An omelet, sir," said John, "and
cold beef and salad."
"A luncheon for a king, if the omelet and salad are properly mada Don't
yon think so, Mrs. Conway?" said
Alan Stacey.
"I do," slid Mary, wondering
whether she ought to be honest and say
that a dish of scrambled eggs was the
nearest approach to an omelet that she
had ever tasted in her Ufa
"I have a little Frenchwoman who
makes both to perfection," he went on.
"Some people like to make a salad at
tabla I don't. I know several delightful houses where it is the task of the
young ladies to dress the salad, and
they do it with a diffidence which results in loathliness. Tell Maltide that
this omelet is excellent, John."
"Very good, sir."
Mary ate her portion and allowed
herself to be persuaded into taking a
little more, but she refused wine and
persisted in taking only water. "I must
keep my head clear," she said firmly.
"I want to do your work and myself
justice this afternoon."
Alan Stacey tried hard to overrule
her, because, as he said, they ought to
have a mild celebration of their first
day's work and their first meal together. It is true that he liked and respected her the better that she held firmly to
her point
"When the book Is finished, Mr
Stacey." she said, "if yon then think
my work worth celebrating, I will do
It with pleasure. As yet you don't
know whether 1 have not made the
most fearful •hash of yonr work or
whether I may not turn out to be ten
times more aggravating than cither
Mi** Blank or the good gentleman who
did not mind waiting."
"I don't think so," he said in a tone
of conviction.
His instinct proved to be correct, as
tbe instinct of a man who has given bis
life up to tho study of character usually is.   After a delightful luxurious half

Awt then hcr/nn a long well of hard work
bonr of chut Mary went back to the
Btndy und begun to work, and by 5
o'clock had finished her transcription of
the morning's work   Ainu Stacey, who
wns ns keenly interested in the result
of the experiment as -die was. come In
from the garden and nnd over the fiiir
typewritten pages. He did not speak
till he hnd rend to the end.
"Mth  Conway," he snisl  then, "yon
are a perfect treasure   Can you keep it
"Vim have taken me down literally
word for word, point for point You
bnve caught the exact spirit of my idea.
Mrs. Conway, if yon can keep it up we
shall get on splendidly. "
She hud flashed up scarlet in her excitement and suspense.and Alan Stacey,
looking nt her, said to himself that
surely his star had been in the ascendant
when such a dainty creature had suddenly fallen from the skies in lieu of
the bulldog features and Btaring goggle
eyes of the pntient individual who had
but just left him.
"lam so glad," she said with her
pretty, shy nir; "so proud to be able to
help you. I'll try hard never to be anything but your interpreter."
He laughed alond and held out his
band. "That's a good name for you,
Mrs. Conway," he said. "I can never
say 'my typist dues this' or 'my stenographer does that.' You're not my secretary, and it would sound pretentious
to call you so. But 'interpreter'—that's
a splendid name for yon. I shall always
call you by it"
And so he did. She went that very
evening and looked nt various rooms in
the neighborhood, fixing on some in a
qnaint out of the world nook which
they call Parson's Green. I don't mean
all that intricate bewilderment of small,
featureless, mean little streets which
lie between Fnlham palace and the
cemetery, but a corner on the other side
of the railway line, a corner which then
was still rejoicing in tall old trees and
spacious wide fronted houses, such as
kept an air of dignity about them
which came as a surprise to thc stranger
wandering through the neighborhood.
And then began a long spell of hard
work, yet work tbat was intensely enjoyable in character. It is almost impossible adequately to describe the
effect which this way of earning her
living had npon Mary Conway. She
was still quite young, little more than
a girl, and during all her early years
romance and the joy of life had never
had any chance of growing and flourishing within her.
There is nothing of romance about
the life of aboard school mistress, more
especially when under the continual influence of a mother wbo never forgot
her gentility or that her daughter was
the child of a gentleman. The board
school mistress who can love and be
loved again by a young man whose
sphere is the same as her own, a young
man whose aims and ambitions are on
a level with her own, can revel in romance as entirely as the hero of a novel
or the lord of tbe manor. A young girl
may spend her life in the stuffy classroom of the state schools and yet invest
her lover with all the tender and idyllic
romance of a knight of old, but if sbe
is cut off by class grade from intercourse with those men among whom
she is thrown by circumstances all the
romance which may be in ber heart is
of necessity bottled up for sheer want
of an outlet
Mary Conway, frail and delicate of
being aa she was, gentlewoman to her
finger tips, a girl in whom all tho signs
of good breeding were present to a very
marked degree, was of a nature in
which romance was indigenous, and nntil the time when she became associated
in work with Alan Stacey, the novelist,
no sort of outlet had afforded itself,
and all the natural love in her heart
had been pent up until it was filled
nigh to bursting and was ready to overflow at the first kind word from a sympathetic soul, at the first touch of a
kind bund, at the first glance of a pair
of magnetic eyea
In Alan Stacey, Mary found not an
employer, but an idol. From the first
day she worshiped him. I know tbat it
is not a commonly accepted idea that
a woman should lovo a man at first
Bight. In a senso she did not do so, and
yet she idolized him. The possibility
that one day she might be something
more to Alan Stacey than his interpreter
never for a moment entered her head.
But she loved hlin with a dim, faroff,
almost a religions, feeling. He was so
brilliantly clever both in his work—for
where were such vivid, brilliant, haunting human books to bo found as those
which bore his name?—and in liiniHelf.
There were times when he worked at
fever hent untiringly, restlessly, almost
passionately; times, when the lit was on
him. when ho almost wore her out calling on her to como early and to stay
late, times when thoy snatched their
meals and when she went home to ber
bed dog tired and brain weary.

On* That  Cmis.cil  a l'l-rliirmsnos ta
End In a lliot.
Stnsre banquets ure not invariably merry, ns witness a very old one—that la
"Macbeth," wjicre Banquo Is a guest unseen by all but the host, whose ravings
at the sight throw everything into disorder nnd cause the hostess to dismiss the
company. There is also an outdoor dinner going on in "Aa You Like It" when
Orlando Interrupts. In Shakespeare's
lime ut these stnge feasts the performers
used ns food marchpane, a sort of biscuit, to which one of the servants makes
nllnsion in "Borneo and Juliet," "Good
thou, save me a piece of marchpane."
The actors grumbled at the constant use
of marchpane and would have preferred
something substantial.
ln tbe eighteenth century, when the
strolling players went more or less merrily on foot aud were much of the time
half starved, real food In the plays was
more than welcome. There was a British manager who, whenever salaries wert
considerably ln arrears sad dlssatlsfae-
tis>n prevalent, soothed everybody Into
good humor again by putting up the nautical drama, "The Cramoud Brig," which
calls for a dinner of boiled mutton and
turnipB. In "Thc Gentle 8hepherd,"
which used to be given lu Scotland, real
haggis was introduced. There was also
a very elaborate meal in the old farce
"No Song, No Supper."
Persons ln the*'audience are not aware,
perhaps, that it Is difficult to eat on the
stage and carry on the dialogue st the
same time. Not a little practice Is required. The experienced players, however, do It gracefully and well. Before
an audience one must est very daintily,
els* well bred people la front will criticise. Au actress mutt alio know something about cooking, or at least about
the preparation of food. Making bread
on the stage is common, and in Robertson's "Ours" there Is a charming scene
where Mary Netley runs about in the hut
in the Crimea with sleeves rolled up and
In her hand the well dusted rolling pin.
She also works out the dough.
Occasionally thero is too much drinking. In a play entitled "The Wary Widow," which was scted In 1603, tt Is said
that there was so much whisky punch
consumed that all the performers became
Mr. Clement Scott, In his memoirs, relates the disastrous experience some years
ago in London of Miss Nita Nrcotlna, a
young woman who made her debut la a
play called "Ecarte." The Australian
tragedian, Boothroyd Falrclough, was In
the cast The picnic scene was of highly
realistic character—genuine hampers from
Fortnum & Mason's, Ferigord pies, chicken, truffles and champagne. The repast
was of sumptuous character, and the actors and actresses ate and drank heartily. The gallery, after awhile, becoming
weary of so much feasting without being
able to join in lt, began to jeer. The
champagne continued to flow, and Miss
Nicotine displayed the effects of overindulgence. The jeers turned into yells,
and presently, when she entered with a
green boot on one foot and a yellow boot
on the other, the yells became howls, and
the lady unwisely attempted a speech.
The piece ended In a riot, and the lights
were put out.
Moat Tattooed Haa la Fraaee.
Languishing in a prison cell la Paris, to
which be was relegated tbe other day for
assault aad battery, Is one Augusts For-
min, an ex-soldier, who claims to be the
most tattooed man la Frsnce. His body
presents an illustrated version ot the
Dreyfus case, In which the moat dramatic episodes In that world famous drama
are reproduced with great skill.
His right arm bears the portraits of the
•fEcers who testified at the Zola trial, together with a picture of the novelist On
his left arm la th* portrait of ths 1st*
president ef th* republic, Felix Faura,
aad other celebrities who figured la con-
aectioa with the case of the prisoner of
Devil's Island. Then, beginning with th*
tragical incident of Dreyfus' degradation
In the presence of the troops, scene after
scene Is unrolled. Th* spaces between
are filled In with flags and allegorical devices, such as a bleeding hesrt pierced by
a dagger and a boa constrictor crushing a
man. In all there are 120 scenes, portraits aad devices.
This remarkable example of tattooing
was performed while Formin wss serving In a disciplinary battalion at Blribi,
ia Tunis. II* claim* that the surgeon of
his regiment offered him 400 francs for
the Illustrations on bis back, promising to
remove the skin without pala and guaranteeing that he would speedily recover
and suffer no ill effects from tho operation. Formin, however, preferred to keep
his pictures.

He hnd attended a meeting ot which
tbe Enrl of Shaftesbury was chairman.
The duty of propoj-iiig a vote of thanks
was assigned to him and the announcement made:
"Our American cousin, the Rev. Mr,
Moody of Chicago, will now move a
vote of thanks to the noble earl who
has presided ou this occasion,"
The whole thing wnR quite out of Mr.
Moody's line. English formalities might
or might not have come gracefully
from his lips had he attempted them.
but he did not. With tin utter disregard of conventionality be burst upon
the audience with the bold announcement:
"The speaker hnR made two mistakes. To begin with. Tin not the Rev.
Mr. Moody at nil. I'm plain Dwlght L.

then I'm not your American cousin.

he stopped It, He said he'd tried to do

Anaemia, or thin, watery blood, is increasing to an alarming extent among thc school girls anc young women of our
land. Pale gums, tongue and eyelids, mu.-icular weakness, inability for exertion, deficient appetite, Impaired digestion, short
breath, palpitation of the heart, attacks of vomiting, swoonint-'.
hysteria and irregularities ol! the feminine organs are among the
unmistakable symptoms of anaemia or poor qualify of blood.
Anaemic persons arc frequently said to be going into a decline, and as a fact do usually contract consumption or some
fatal constitutional disease if they neglect to restore nornwl
vigor. Fresh air, sunlight, moderate exercise and the regular
use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food after each meal will restore new

Why Men Lift Their Hols.
Some Ontario editors are discussing whether or not a self-respecting
British su'bject could kiss the hand of
tho King. It all depends on the point
of view, says Tho Woodstock Express. No self-respecting citizen could
kiss anybody's hand as a token ol
self-abasement; yet if ho looked upon
the ceremony merely as an acknowledgment of his allegiance, there is no
reason why his self-respect ehould
suffer. Old ceremonies may be retained long after their original significance has departed. Why should
a man take off his hat to a lady?
According to the original significance
of the custom ho offers her an insult,
for by removing his hat he presume*
that she is carrying a cluo or some
other murderous weapon concealed Ib
tho folds of her draperies. When ho
takes off his hat ho says to her in
effect: "There is my naked head;
smash it if you want to." Dut who

A 090-Yfar Lease Expires.
The age of London and the immutable system of affairs is illustrated
by the fact that a 909-year lease
expired here the other day and the
property was taken possession of
by thc original lessor, the chapter of
Westminster parish. Tho lessee "was
tSe town, and the property had been
in its possession continually since
the original lease was made. I do
not think such a thing would occur
In uny other city, but there nre said
to be many similar leases about to
expire, which were made at very
near the same time.
Another interesting fact is that a
bank note for £.r) issued in 1816

one of her ancestors. — W. E. Curtis, in Chicago Itccord-ITcrald.

From the northern end of Chatham
square starts the Bowery, and a few
steps from Its commencement Is tbe
building now used as a Gerinen theater, which was once the Old Bowery.
Before the Bowery theater and previous to tbe Revolution tbe same site
occupied by a building which has a
place ln history because Washington
slept In It. This was the Bull's fiend
tavern. Being close by the city slaughter houses, all the butchers who came
to town stopped nt this Inn, making It
the first commercial Inn of Its dny.
During tbe Revolution Henry Astor,
brother of John Jacob Astor. owned
the Bull's Head tavern. He leased It
to Richard Varlan. But Varlan went
privateering and left tbe Inn to be
conducted by his wife.
Astor was a butcher and conducted
bis business In the Fly market ln
Maiden lane. He Incurred tbe enmity
of all the butchers in tbe town by conceiving tbe brilliant Idea of riding far
ont along tbe Bowery lane, meeting
the drovers as they brought their cattle to town and buying their stock,
which he sold to the other butchers at
his own price. As the lane was really
the only road to tbe city, Astor In this
way formed a trust and prospered for
many yenrs. The inn, too. prospered
until 1820, when lt gave place to tbe
Bowery theater.—Home Journal.

cd with the "knocker," and the dig.
strict is suffering in consequence.
Some man cannot bear to see a neighbor make a deal and will endeavor
to queer everything in their anxiety
•to sluff off their own property. It is
a short-sighted policy and is retarding the development of the country.
Every sale made encourages some
other investor and ull claim-holders
.will get their turn in time. Jealousy
•lias been the ruin of inanv a camp,
hut it ought not to be allowed to do
an injury here. If a man cannot say
**. good word for another's claim, he
sliould have gumption enough to
keep his face closed. The knocker
knocks another's deal and gets
knocked himself in turn.
An object lesson of the beneficial
effects of arbitration and conciliation
was seen here during the week in the
prompt and amicable settlement of
the trouble at the Arlington, Each
side meeting the other on a friendly
-footing and willing to grant concessions, it did not take long to dissipate
the clouds of discord, resulting iti
harmony being restored between the
management and the employees,
The men exhibited good horse sense
in the conferences, while the management displayed a fair and reasonable
spirit, and it is safe to say each side
has a higher respect and esteem for
tho other. What has been done in
this instance by voluntary arbitration is possible tc accomplish in every
industrial dispute which may arise in
tbe province, and the way to secure
as prompt an adjustment is to have
arbitration made compulsory by law.
.From a mining standpoint, thc dry
ore belt tributary to thc city is in a
,flourishing condition. More men are
employed on the various properties
than a year ago and the payroll has
increased The amount expended in
supplies and for wages will total
$600,000 this year; $100,OX) has been
distributed since January 1 in various mining deals; while a large sum
of money has been expended in general improvements, machinery and
•trails. It is safe to stfy $1,000,000 is
not too high an estimate for the total
•expenditure in the camp during
1901. Added to this is the largely
increased tonnage of ore exported.
Taken all together no camp in the
country has more reason to be thankful and hopeful than the Slocan I "ity
division. The prospects for the future
are bright and ere the snow flies a
number of other important deals will
be closed up.
Contrast J. Frank Collom'a conciliatory actions witli his men in the recent trouble at tlio Arlington with
.the bulldozing and domineering tactics adopted bv Bernard oiacdonald
and Edmund Kirby at Rossland, and
see which is ofthe greater benefit to
the country.   In the one casc'a manager is not above treating with his
men face to face and upon an equal
footing, and the result is shown in a
restoration of peace and the strengthening of the bonds of friendship between employer and employee; in the
other case, look ut tho evil results
accruing to management, men and
camp through tho fuedal ideas advanced   by   employers,   who   hold
thoraselves aloof from  and  above
their employees.   Let any  manager
■how himself approachable to his men
and willing to listen to their grievances and ho will be rewarded a
hundredfold. Unionism is recognized
by the leading mining operators: in
this camp and it Is singularly free
from distrust and suspicion.
