The Arlington is continuing to ship

out during the week. Prom the Eu-

have some effect in lessening shipments owing to the breaking up of tho
roads, but once the snow is here half a
dozen properties will enter the shipping list. Among them will Iks the
Republic,Mefteor, Ottawa, Bondholder

freight tonnage, and it is expected a
rate of $10 per ton on the ore will be
given. Should the matter lie -atisfae-

of tlu' larger mines will establish
works to reduce their zinc ores and
clear them of lead as far as possible.

be oasdy attainable and il will enable

of the zinc question would coin" as
welcome news, as it is in shape i<> give

None of tl e enclosures referred to
were in the letters.
Shortlv alter midnight, the "Cur-
lew" dropped anchor in Santa Cruz
Bay. In answer to her whistle. Dr.
i'umeos bout, and that of the Eng-
I sh Agents, were already approach-
ns;: followed by other containing
fruit car ro and voluble Spaniards.
The few i aaseugers who were on deck
stood watching the flotilla Unit crept
tsswurd theu. out of tlie darkness. As
ss.on as Br. Uuirieo declared the snip
out ol quarantine, the Spaniards
ewar:ii-:d en board. Then commenced
noisy confiiR-ion, which lasisjd till
tho vessel lert. and formed a bewildering contrast to the quiet routine
of the past fortnight.
John was perplexed to know what
he sliould do. Was it worth while to
go fcl onee t»o the town, or should he
wait where he was for two or three
hours? While lis* debated, his arm
was touched. Bes'de him stood Alan,
clinging to the bulwarks for support.
"Fetch me a chair please," he said,
"and see nbrmt hiring a boat for me.
I must go on shore."
John gazed blankly at him, dumb
with vexation and amazement; then
he went for a chair. Dr. Brand was
with him when he returned. The two
men tried remonstrance and persuasion in vain: Alun only reiterated hla
demand to have a boat hired.
"I am well able to go," he said.
"Since Monday I have done nothing
but sleep, and 1 feel quite strong.
Nothing you can say will hinder me.
I mean to go: if you will not corns
with me, I must go alone."
Seeing that opposition was useless,
they tried to persuade him to wait
for an hour or two, until there was
more light; but even this he refused.
Thero was nothing for it but an
immediate start. The doctor leaned
over tlio bulwarks, trying to distinguish tho faces of the boatmen who
waited a few fe-et away from the
ship.
"I used to know some of these fellows," he saisl. "but it is almost too
dark to rerogni/e them."
nis remark was overheard by one
of the shipping agents who stood
near.
"Can I be of any use to you, gentlemen?"
They told him what they wanted.
"Marco!" ho called.
"Si Senor."
A boat shot through the water to
tho ship's side.
"Marco, you will take three gentlemen to tho mole for live pesetas."
"Impossible. Senor! For fifteen."
"That is robbery Marco. Five pesetas is more than enough."
"Is therp luggage?"
Tho question was translated and
nogativod.
"Ther« is no luggage, Marco."
"Senor. I could not do lt."
"Bueno! You uro not the only one;
there arc others  who will,"

"The mun    wants    to charge

"What does that signify; let him
have what he asks."
"Well—they are all thieves. Marco
is perhaps     leas    a    thief    than the
oth'TS,"
The events that followed, seemed
to John like a miserable nightmare.
lie tried again to slissuadc his friend
from leaving tho ship; but every word
of remonstrance Irritated the invalid
so much, that it ssxined worse than
uselsss. Alan attempted to walk
to the gangway, and almost fell: after some troub'e they placed him in
a chair and lowered it over the ship's
side into the boat. John und the doctor took their scats, and were followed presently by the gentleman
who had hired the boat for them.
"My Spanish may bo of use to
you," he said, us they wi>re being
rowed through the water. "Can either
of you speak it?"
"I onco lived In Iluenos Ayres for

John looketl at him, aghast.
"Alan!  what is it? What  is it?"
They  were close io thc mole,    the
light "streamed     down on their faces.
Alan's eyes had  in them  a far-away
happv look.
"Death," ho said, gently. "Tell
Mary."
When they lifted him out of the
boat his. heart had stopiied beating.
They had feared such a consummation as this, and yet it wus a terri-
b'e shock. Irresolutely they stood
looking at each other.
"What is to Le done?" John asked.
"We can surely take him somewhere.
You have an English burying ground,
I suppose."
"Yes, we have a burying ground;
but, in the meantime—? You see
there is a regulation in force here,
forbidding the removal of any body
from tho mole until the Mayor has
seen it and given his consent."
"Then some one must go to the
Mayor for us."
"Ho Will not be disturbed at so
early an hour."
"Xot even in a case of tills kind?"
"No."
"Thero are buildings on the mole:
can we not make use of one of
tbem?"
"I will nsk: but these fellows nre
so suiperstitiuus that 1 fear they will
not l«?t you take your dead friend
into ono of their sheds."
It pro\ed to be as he suid. No
one would givo the requirod permission.
'"Vhen can we semi for the
Mayor"""
"It is 2 o'clock now; he wilt not
come down beforo 5 nt the earliest."
"And we sail at 6.301"
"Has he any friends here'.' Y'ou
might send for them."
"Oh yes," suid John, much relieved. "He expected to meet sir.
John Corbett who lives in the Culle
Sun Antonio. Perhaps > ou know
him."
My denr sirf if you mean tne young
fellow- of that name who came oul
from Glasgow to take a photographic
business here, he has been dead nine
months. He was not too strong
when he came out; and a chill he
took at I.aguna last autumn, killed
him in a few days."
John gave a groan of dcsralr.
"What can we do?"
"I can only suggest that you cave
lhe affair in the bands of the English
Consul nnd myself. Give mo your
Instructions, and I will sc» that
they are faithfully carried out. Will
you come to my office now, Bud arrange what you would like done?"
•'You go," said John to l.i. companion. "I can't leave Liu; here
alone."
As the two gentlemen "-"talked
away, he turned again to th* chair
and its silent occupant; und kneeling
slow n beside his friensl, ho gazed nl
the dead face until f.ie vision grew
blurred, it seemed lei -*lble that
Alun could be dead. IL .bought he
heard him breathe; he thought he
saw the movement of respiration; he
thought the eyelids quivred us he
watched them. Death had beautified
tho face: the brow that pain hnd
contracted was smooth nu>-. the
freiful expression had vanished, the
lips were parted with a smile. John
thought of his own life, comparatively freo from grief: thc past full
of bright memories, the lot ure full
of brighter hopes All sunshine for
him: all slarkness for that other—
dead, und.T a cloud of disgrace,
without even thc chance to clear
himself in lhe eyes of the g'rl he had
lovs*d.    Poor lad, poor lad!
After a short ubsei; tho doctor
returned, and together they searched
to ses* if Alun had nny valuables
about li nit. They found nothing but
a letter-case, containing in one pocket a key of which John tool, possession, und in another a lank note
of sufficient value to cover the ex-
penses of Interment lleiiieinbering
Alan's lust words, John felt that, the
money had been placed ths*re for
that purpose.
This duty done, they awaited thu
summons to return to the ship.
Now and again they exchanged a
few worsls: si>eaking in whispers, us
though Alan only slept, and might
ut any time awaken und hour them.
They Watched the gray duwn burn

PAKT II.
CHAPTER I.
Fortune Smiled upon Oavln WIs-
hart; and straightway mnny people,
by whom he hnd been hitherto un-
BOtlced, begun to favor him with
their smiles ulso — so thut life appeared to him to be a pleasant thing,
uud he, us the object ot 8o many
smiles, ii pleasant and amiable person,       liefore  Fortune smiled    upon
htm, his estimation of life and of
himself, was widely different; lilc
was unbearable, he wns despicable.
This was always most evident to
him just before l*.s salary was due,
when the weight of unpaid bills te-
came oppressive; but after the money
was actually in his hands and, his
eyes had grown accustomed to the
sight of unreceipted accounts, the
feeling died down for a time.
He was looked upon with interest,
in those days, only by his employers
and his creditors. To the former he
se.*iiied to be fairly intelbgent nnd
trustworthy young man, who had
served them for ten years without
provoking their wrath or their admiration. They were genuinely sorry
to part with him when the nece sity
for parting came, and they told him
so in terms which caused him to
loathe himself for ten minutes, und
admire their discrimination for the
remainder of the day.
His creditors had at first been Impressed by his graceful ease of manner which suggested a corresponding
ease of circumstun'cs. He rose iu their
regurd when it became evident that
he wus a competent judge of the
goods supplied to him. He smirked
little, but his cigars must be of the
best; he drank ls*es, but only the finest wines would content him. At Ws
rooms, which were small and in an
obscure neighborhood, evitleiice* of
his extravagance were visible in the
quality of the station ry he used,
and in the type and bin ling of tho
few books he possessed, t'n'ortunato-
ly all his desires were costly, and he
had hitherto been able to attempt to
satisfy them only to a lim't-jd degree and at intervals of time. When
credit failed him, he starved his various appetites, pleas«d to observe the
extent of his powers oi self-control;
and resigned himself to the importunities of his creditors with an indifference which he admired, and thoy
did not. His debts were small; he
compared them with the debts of
other men and found them trifling;
unhappily his income was smaller —
Fate was clearly to blame for gifting h'm with expensive tastes, and
failing to provide means sufficient for
their satisfaction. Any alteration in
his own habits was out of the question.
Indifference toward creditors, is nn
attitude thut cannot be maintained
indefinitely. A time came when public
exposure was thrs'atened. Th"*n philosophy withdrew her support, the
young mun s face became haggard,
anxiety overpowered him, his state
of mind grew desperate. He actually
went to the len th of pawning hi
wut"h to procure himself a pistol,
and sat with .t in his hand for hours
one night, lacking the nerve to hohl
it to his he.id. Next morning he received the news that £2(.i0.d00, the
property of a d'stant relative who
had taken no notice of his legatee
during his life time, hnd been left to
him,  under certain conditions.
Blessed, blessed change! The hand
of Providence was clearly e.iden.ed
in it. The very conditions luid down
by the testator must have ben devised in heaven, so completely did
their fulfilment release (lavin Wis-
hart from his unhappy past and
start him on an entirely new enreer.
A feeling of awe took possession of
him, he saw himself to be one particularly favored by God. He determined to be punctilious in his attendance at church, and to revive sundry pious customs of his youth which
had lately fallen into disuse. He now
thought debt to be a hideously dishonorable state, into Which he would
never, in any circumstances, allow
himself to relapse; and as unlimited
credit was again at his command,
this resolution appeared to him highly virtuous. He also subscribed hunsl-
somely to two or three charities,
which in tho days of his poverty ho
would have liked to aid hud cigars
ami wines been a little leas costly.
Tin so initial steps taken, he repaired
to tho house of his deceased relative,
and began to surround himself with
the things that his soul loved

Color Is One of the Most Import
ant Points in Well Made
Butter.
Too many buttermakers lose sight
of the fact that "color" is one of
tho most important and effective
points in good butter. The sweetest
•nd richest butter is but half prepared for the critical eyes of consumers, if tho color be faulty or objectionable.
Wells, Richardson & Co.'s Improved Butter Color gives tho natural
golden tint to butter in the autumn
and winter seasons. It is tho favorite color in the (lovernment Creameries, and ls used exclusively by the
largest makers of butter for export
and home consumption. Wells, Richardson & Co 's Improved Mutter
Color never fash's from tho butter; it
does not turn n brlcky shade such u.i
other colors produce; It Is pure and
harmless; its keeping qualities are
perfect; It is the strongest, therefore
the cheapest to use. Ask your druggist or dealer for It; take no other
msJts.

Paine's Celery
Compound
FOR CLEANSING AND PURIFYING THE BLOOD.
It Eradicates the Seed of Disease,
Invigorates and Rejuvenates.
Thousands of men and women who
have neglected the work of physical
recuperation in the summer months,
are now currying a burden of disease.
In the majority of cuses Impure und
poisoned blood und sluggish circulation ure the direct causes of Buffering und misery. Are you, reader,one
of the victims? If so. do not hesitate a moment regarding what you
should do. The life stream must be
made pure, the health-wrecking laxity of tho blood vessels must bo corrected, the nerves und tissues must
be nourished. Paine's Celery Compound is tho medicine that physicians recommend for the increase of
pure blood in the arteries, and for
arousing the purifying organs to cast
ofl tho Impurities that give rise to
disease. Mr. T. F. Mitchell, New
Hamburg, Ont., writes as follows :
"My mother Buffered for five years
With a sore leg, unci her system was
so far run down that doctors could
not help her. She could hardly walk
about the house. She tried almost
everything to procure a cure, but no
good lesults came until Paine's Celery Compound was used, which gave
her instant relief. She is now using
the third bottle and able to do her
own work."
She—"liefore we were married you
said it would give you the greatest
pleasure tu gratify my every wish."
