"Let's see wbnt he Is looking at,"

Lois, glancing up qtllckly at th.' significant note In his voice.
"Where nre yonr eyes, daughter?
There, he's facing us. with his hat off.
Now you must recognize bim."
The youth with the kitten on his arm
bad readied dry soil, where he sl aid

clothing. After n moment's meditation,
however, he put on his coat and continued his progress loward theni. still

Lois took one long look, then lowered
her glasses to hide a burning face
ngainst her father's coat.
"Is lie still coming?" she nt length
"Certainly," said Southley. "Yon

just becnuse his clothes were mussed,
did you?"
Lois forsook his encircling arm and
began to settle her hair with deft pats.
"I think," suid she—"I think— No, I
don't think any more; I know. Father,
I shan't need yoar help, I'd rather

"All right, child." replied the old gentleman, turning to enter the house. "I
never believed it wise for parents to

natural market for Ontario poachos,

When horses Mere Urst hitched to

he walked on the left side, nnd consequently the horse on the left side came
to bo known us the •'near" horse, and
the one on the right side was called the

The estimated enst of building the
Grand Trunk Pacific road is $175,000,*
000. Sir Chas. Rivers Wilson, president of the Grand Trunk, at the annual meeting in London, told the
shareholders thai an excellent bargain
had been made with the dominion
government for building the new mad
—the government to contribute nine
tenths of the cost and the shareholders
the otlier tenth. Sir Charles shoulil
lciiow what he is talking of, as hi-*
road is a party to the deal. That will
let Canada in for $150,000,000 all
right, Galliher's the Liberals' Btate-
meuts to the contrary notwithstanding,
The Nelson News is splitting hairs
ou tlie railway policy of the two greal
parties. It admits the Liberal scheme
is for a company road; that Conservatives favor the construction of a government owned road, but it bulks at
the suggestion of Conservatives operating that road, because, forsooth, i!
is contended Hon. Mr. Borden has not
stated so in exact words. If Leader
Borden has not said he woultl operate
his government owned road for the
people, or that he does not favor such
operation, does it not seem more than
passing strange that his followers,
supported by the party press, are
conducting a campaign along those
lines, ls it ;t soldiers' fight without
tlie officers' commands or approval?
