R. J. McPhee, manager of tho Ottawa,, states that an important discovery was made on that propeity last
week, in that it lias now lieen satisfactorily proven that it carries two veins,
running parallel at a short distance
apart and both mineral bearing. For
some time past Mr. McPhee has been
dissatislied with the course taken by
the lead iu the No. 4 tunnel,which has
been driven 160 feet with tho object of
hitting the big ore chute encountered
in the No. '5, whieh is 130 feet overhead. To make certain he sent for
W. S. .Johnson, who mado a thorough
examination and survey of tho lead
and made a cross section of the
ground. The conclusion arrived at
was that thero wero two veins, running
alxmt 80 feet apart, but with surface
cappings very close together. Tho
No. 1 workings were proven to be on
the west vein, while tho No. 3 are on
that to the east.
When theso facts were demonstrat-1
held to satisfy a mortgage held by the
bank against the property of J-oTiOO.
The group was owned by the Queen
Bess Proprietary Co., an English corporation.

the Conservatives, everything is in order awaiting the call oi the provincial
executive for meeting in convention in

Tuesday a new feature cropped up.
in that a definite move was made by
the Lalior men to place a candidate iu
the field.   A public  nieeting will  be
held on Saturday night in the Union
Hall, to discuss the situation, and all
persons anxious to see a Labor man
put up are asked to be present.    A
preliminary canvass* of the situation
has been held by friends of the cause

"Why didn't you run!" demanded
"I staid to piny the game out," replied lilalr. "There was money In

also 1 love life. Uow absurd, but
1 Uo—uow that It'a overl Think of

well, I'm done for—doue fori"
Elmendorf eyed the man curiously.
IDs fare was flushed aa if with fever,
and his words were thickly Ottered
and hurrifl.il, as with delirium.
"You didn't get the money V" said
"Money!" echoed BlaJr. "For tbe
first time in my life*I forgot that there
was sucb a thlug. I read that letter,
as you guessed, nnd I was crazed. I
knew sbe wns holding ber secret, and
would put him off for shame, aud because she treasured up something he
had said that frightened her—about
some woman who ran away to be married. Well, I went there tbat ufter-
iK.'iiu; I talked with her, raved at
her and then—well, you know what
happened. I thought every oue would
know I did lt We had had more meetings in tbe last few weeks tban you'd
believe possible," he rambled ou, "but
then nobody cares wbat his neighbor
does here in New York. Our whole romance passed without notice. I waa
on the balcony when Robiuson canse."
"Did you know that be returned?"
asked Elmeudorf.
"llo left bis cane In tbe room, got
outside the bouse, got In again because
the lock hadn't caught anil entered
the room, thinking thut be had beard
an answer to bis knock. There waa
the money right on the table, and no-

beiug on the balcony between the windows, llo needed money, and he tossk
it, and I traced lt. The man's at headquarters now. He tried to skip, but he
was shadowed at the time, as I knew
and be didu't."
"I thought Neale got the money,"
aaid Blalr, starting as if from a do/.e.
"Robinson will be released," said
Elmendorf. "There'll be no complaint.
This whole case will be covered up."
"Covered up?" echoed Blalr, aud he
laughed.   "I'll  be covered  up—lu uiy
grave, and, by , Elmendorf, I dou't
want to dlel   I don't want to diet  Can
you understand tlmt?"
"Don't die, then," said Elmemlorf;
'there's no naed of It I shan't trouble
you. I could make a lot of money by
letting you alone, and I'm going to do
It ror nothing, or, to be exact. I'm
going to do It for Elsie Miller. You'll
go acot free, Blalr, you black hearted,
lying brute!"
Blalr suddenly rose to his feet He
seemed to be Impossibly tall us he stood
there wltb raised shoulders and clinched bands, staring down at Blmendorf.
"Do you mean to say that you have
not come here to take me?" he demanded.
"That's what I mean," said Elmendorf. "You can go where you please,
and you'd better go as fast as you oan,
for Alden may bo here at any moment
Perhaps you have observed certain
physical peculiarities of Mr. Alden? 1
seem to bear your bones crack, I'.lalr,
ln his hands."
Blalr gave utterance to a terrible
"Do you know what I bavo doue?"
be cried In a volco that seut a chill to
Klmendorfs heart   "Look here!"
He lifted tbo smell bottlo and then
dashed It down to shivers.
"I'm done fori I've taken enough of
thut to kill three men. No electric
.-hairs for me. And now—I nlgbt have
lived! I might havo gone abroad. 1
could have bad money- found a uew
life; but I'm a dead man."
He bad wrenched open the door of a
locker upon the wall, but at the last
words be turned to launch a frightful
curse at Blmendorf.
"I may still save my§elf," ho bnb-
blcd, and there wns a rattling of bottles In the cupboard. "This Is It
Great heavens! There Is hardly enough.
Bring me that water."
Elmendorf started to comply, but his
Kps-s-si did not equal Blair's Impatience,
and tbe latter sprang forward so that
tbey came together. There wus a
tinkling of glass upon tbe floor.
Blalr sprang back, bis face dripping
and ghastly red with tbe poison.
"It's all I have!" be cris-d. "It's my
last chant-si!   And you—you did It!"
With Incredible strength and midden-
ness be seized a heavy paperweight
from tbe table and aimed a fearful
blow at Elmendorf. The detectlvo reeled for un Instant anil then fell face
downward upon tbe floor, where he lay
perfectly still.
Blair glanced at blm once, tlipn ru«h*
ed to a mirror near thu window and
stares! at bis own IIvial face.
"Tbere snny bo time!" he gasped, om*
band clutching tils breast.    "If I cun
get to a drug store"—
He seized bis bnt Instinctively nnd
rushed to the door, tiirotigh which he
passed Into tbe hall.
"Dr. Blnlr," saial u rerneinbrrod voli'e,
*l must spenk with you. Como bock
with me. Where Is Elmendorf? Hum
you seen him?"
Frantic,  be  tried  to shake off  tbe
band that was ou his nrm. but the h.iml
wns of iron. He bubbled unintelligible
"Poison!" cried Alden. "Who Is poisoned?   Come bnck here to the light."
And be thrust Blalr into tlie office,
practically carrying the man at arm's
length. Utterly Insane with the feat
of death, Blalr struck at bis captor
vainly and screamed like a child.
Elmendorf was struggling to his feet
as they entered, and Alden uttered a
cry at tiie sight of blm.
"Did he do this?" he exclaimed,
pointing at Blalr, whom be had released.
Elmendorf pressed his hand upon his
hair, wblcb was wet with blood.
"Yes," he said hoarsely; "this—and
the other!"
Alden paused an Instant, the strength
of his body gathering for effort.
Then he leaped forward nnd seemed
to pass half through, half over, the
body of Blair, as if tt bad been a ghost
la garments. Turning, he fflir I'lalr
lying upon the Moor, bla limbs contorted, his face bearing the uuoilstakable
stamp of death.
Elmendorf stnggered forward and
knelt beside the body.
"We're going to keep her secri-t." he
said. "Her name must not appear lu
this. We must see what the man lias
in his pocks'ts and ln the room. Some
of these fellows make strange memoranda."
"Brenda has told me the story," said
Aides. "It s*ould not be concealed. In
fact, I had got bsi much from the nurse
you bribed that use remainder mattered little. And tliis man was her hus-
baud. this cowardly wretch, this assas-
slu of women!"
"He was also an inveuterof women."
said Elmeudorf. "And I never kuew a
shrewder trick."
"Do you mean that he lied about seeing oue?"
"Then was no myst.^rious woman
In the case," replied Blmendorf. "It
was a pure Action and worthy of its

mi mlorf, didn't I tell you lo let this
man alone?"
"I'll let him alone now, captain," said
Elmendorf. "You can bury him. And
See that you bury everything else too.
Tils whole case is on tiie quiet I can
steer things at bsiadquarters with a lit
tie money, Mr. Alden. und Joe Neale
must tuke care of the precinct. This
Is a mysterious suicide, Neale; dtis'
probably to financial trouble or 111
health. It has no relation to the case
of Miss Miller."
"Since when did I take orders from
you?" cried Neale.
"Since I got hold of this," replied F.I-
mendotrf, showing the partnership
agreement "i know the whole game,
Nenle, and you can't stand It Just
"That's off anyhow," said Neale, witl
deep   bitterness,   "Duncan   Maclane
was too smart. He has got the Holbein company's option himself, for the
gent who was to bave been his son-ln-
law, of course."
Ansl he bowed grotesquely to Alden
"Maclane smellcd a rat after he had
given up to Blnlr." be continued, "and
so he stepped In ahead of us. And
now, Eliiii'iidorf, I'm willing to call
tills thing a draw on your terms. I'll
attend to matters hero strictly on the

"It Is," replied the detective. "As
so- n as I get my bead patched up I'll
go down to headquarters and g*_'t Bob*

"I am a-going back to St. Winifred's,"
was the reply.
Wben Alden renched the hospital, bo
wi :it at once to Keudull's room, from
which plnco be sent word of his arrival. Both tbe doctor and Breuda
prs'seutly Joined him.
"1 think the danger ls all over," snld
Kendull, taking Alden's hand. "This
last attack of faiutuess was to bo expected; but I do not look for any recurrence. But bow Is It with you?
•Something serlou.-s bus happened?"
Alden told theni simply and directly
Just whut bad occurred.
"She Is free, then?" exclaimed Brenda.
"Yes, and partly by my band," he replied. "Bts'iida, I am glad of It. 1 nm
glud to hove been concerned In I tint
man's death. I am more than hair a
t-nvnge. From the first instant, when
I learned thnt Elsie bud been struck
dowu, I hail scarcely more thnn one
idea, one passion thc desire for vengeance. 1 wanted to kill with my own
hands tho mnn who hnd done this
thing. All softer feelings were swallowed up In thnt one desire."
"it produced a lingular effect," said
Kendall, with a shudder.
"You mean lhat I seemed to be guilty
of tbls crime?" said Alden calmly.
"Well, there was murder In iny henrt
at tbe time, you see, antl 1 cannot
blame any who misjudged me. And
now, Brenda," bo snld, drnwlng him*
self up and clinching his white anil del*
Icntu bunds thnt gave so liitln hint of
their enormous strength, "1 am glad
Hint I enn go to her and tell her thnt

her; that all these horrors"—
"My friend." said Brenda, checking
him. "you will do nothing of the kind."
He asked her In surprise wbat Bbe
might menu.
"Y'ou will utter no such violent sentiments," she said. "Elsie believes herself a sinner. She looks upon thut folly
as If it were a terrible offense, ami.
what Is much more Important, she believes that you will so regard It She
thinks that you will look upon her us a
girl disgraced by her own act u-nil
saved by chance. The whole timidr
bas assumed a shape utterly monstrous
lu her eyes. Now, what will you do—
thank God in her presence that the
dreadful drama closed with your bands
upon Blair's throat? Never, never!
You will be very gentle alwnys. You
will say to her In tbe beginning that
you love her dearly and thut not bin;,'
else matters in the least. Vou, will
speak as little as possible of this tangle of crime. It is not Important Do
you cxwiprchend? Love is what matters. Throughout these first difficult
days and for all your lifo you will do
tho same tblug. Y'ou will help her to
forget that sucb men ns Blair are In
tbe world; that sbe ever met one of
them. It won't be a forbidden topic.
Ob, far from that; merely a matter not
worth brooding over In a world full of
sunshine and love."
"Brenda," Bald he, "tbls is the (lower
of wisdom. I think 1 might huve
erred In a way that would huve taken
a long time to Bet right Can 1 sou her
"I think you can," said Kendall—
And with the last word he looked
at Brenda.   Alden understood.
"I shall be all you wish me to be,"
he said.
So they went to Elsie's room, Alden
lingering until the way was prepared
for him. He entered smiling nud handsome lu tbe wuy of the days before.
He knelt down beside Elsie's bed and

Tbere might have been other considerations than mere thanks; but, lu thu
detective's opinion, the time was uot
ripe for corruption.
About a week Inter Alsli'n wns surprised to meet Elmondorf In a car of
the elevated road dressed In a patrolman's uniform.
"Back to the ranks," snld Elmendorf

In England under an old law still ln
force the swan is a royal fowl, as
whales and sturgeons are royal fish.
All swans the property whereof la not
otherwise definable, when within Ihe
Britisli dominions belong to the crown
by virtue of this prerogative. When
swans arc lawfully taken into the possession of a privati* person, such person
may be said to huve a property In
them, but If tbey be nt liberty they belong to the crown. Formerly lt was
necessary for persons who wished to
keep these "royal fowls" to obtain a
swan mark, which was grouted by the
crown and which could not be legally
Impressed witbout grant or prescription. 	
it is no compliment if a friend comes
fifty miles to your wedding, but It Is a

If we muy judmo liy the past, thc
forthcoming dredging of the Tilier
OUght to yield some renin' I'llljle
"finds." A long I lino ago il was
proposed to divert tho stream ofthe
liver ahove Romq, so that excavations might he mado in thu thud und
.'lime, und also in the solid earth
that underlies the presont channel.
That idea was abandoned as too
elaborate and expensive, Imt in I8T7
an effort was mado to give to tho
Btroam a uniform depth of nine fs'ot.
'Iho dredging Involved tn this hardly
penetrated moro thnn three fsn-t be-
leiw tho bottom, it did not touch
iho lower strata. Nevertheless an
mormons number of antiques wore
disinterred, Few of those dated
hack to clnssicnl times. Coins were
dlsio\orc*d at the rato of l'l,000 per
annum, but, nearly all belong to the
lust two centuries. Some thousands
61 weapons were also recovered, ths*
wltnosses to thc revolutions and political outbreaks of the last few
hundred years. The revolt of IHI'1
and the Napoleonic wars Supplied
the mn.ioi Ily of them.
On only two occasions hns tho Tiller been pierced to a depth of over
.'10 fnet—once in constructing tho
Ponto Qarlbaldl, and once In repairing tho Ponte Sisto. Tho excavations mude at these times were confined to a vesry small area, but they
brought to light an enormous mass
of    archaoological    matoriall     The
treasures comprised coins, medals,
sculptures, bronzes, brass work, inscribed stones and Roins, specimens
of [lottery, nnd also niarliles. Among
the la t was a fino statue in perfect
condition except for the loss of Its
arm. None of these objects hod suf-
ferod much from their entombment,

Toronto, July 0.—(Special)—In
these days when tho dreaded Bright's
Disease seems to bo selecting its victims at will the report of an authenticated cure is received with relief by
all classes of the community. And
such a report comes trom Andrew
McCormick, of 248 Spadina avenue,

That Mr. McOormlck is well-known
and highly rospectod, is evidenced by
tho fact thut ho has held high offices
in several fraternal societies, and
was for several years President of
thst Bricklayers' union. Interviewed
regarding the cure, Mr. McCormick
says :
"I suffered with nn attack of
Blight's liiseuse and naturally was
much troubled concerning it. I heard
ol the wonderful cures effected by
Dodd's Kidney Tills and concluded to
try them. The result was so satis-
fnctory that it gives mo pleasure to
recommend them."

A Trick With nn Ess.
Hace two V shaped wineglasses of
the snnie size near the edge of a table.
In the right hand one put au egg, just
littiug the rim of tlie glass. Hold the
bases of the glasses firmly dowu, tlie
top rims touching each other. Now,
with a quick, sharp breath, blow upon
the line where the egg and the glass
meet. The egg will Jump to the other
glass. With a little practice this can
be done every time. Be careful to
bio sv in a line with the left band glass,
or the egg will Jump In the wrong direction and land ou tbe table with disastrous results.

No shoe manufacturer would have the
temerity to guarantee ordinary Patent or
Enamelled feather-certainly the makers
of the famous "Slater Shoe" would not
guarantee ordinary Patent or Enamelled
leathers because with them a guarantee Is
a -guarantee, not a pleasant sounding but
■meaningless play of words.
But the "Slater Shoe" makers use a
standard of Enamelled leather which they
can and do guarantee-every Enamellod
shoe which bears the " Slater Shoe " trademark Is guaranteed-The "Slater Shoe"
makers use no Enamelled leather which
they cannot guarantee.
And the "Slater Shoe" people have a
patent leather made of Colt skin, pliable,
flexible, as brilliant as the best patent
leather and tough and durable enough to
carry with it the responsible guarantee of
the " Slater Shoe" makers.
Every pair of "Slater Shoes" bearing
their guarantee has with it a Guarantee
Bond Scrip lithographed like a bank note
and as good a guarantee as one.
It says:-
" We (tho makers) warrant the leather
In this pair of shoes not to break through
within three months from date of purchase."
The bond also bears the registered factory number of the pair of shoes to which
It belongs.
