Surely Slocan has won a treat reputation for holding c«ltthratiiin*-i, and
each succeeding event results in
•till greater success. And the best
part of it is that the outside public
have caught on to the idea and are
unusually anxious to push along the
general fun. Of the neighboring
burgs, Rowland seems to have be-
e<*mo infatuated with Slocan and it
evidently desires to annex the place.
Some weeks buck a number at lie-
bokahs came here from the gold
camp and were hospitably entertained, and thev have been boosting for
Sloean ever since. Their work resulted in tlie business men's excursion here last Thursday,when a high
old carnival took place.
On Friday a telegram was received from Frank Woodsides, secretary
iif the Rossland Miners' Union, want-
in'*; to know if tiie city could accom
misdate a labor demonstration on
Sept. I and promising 300 or more of
an attendance. A prompt reply in
I ihe affirmative was sent by Mayor
York and Secretary O'Neail of the
local Union. Other telegrams were
exchanged and by Saturday the thing
wns iii full working order. Messrs.
Coyle and Carter, ofthe C.P.R. i>ass-
eiiger lorvice, happened to be here
and rates were soon arranged from
the other towns, with special service
by lake and rail. Invitations weTe
at once bi nt to the neighboring towns
to participate and all accepted.
A committee canvassed fie town
and raised $400 for sports,being four
times as much as Rossland asked.
Later on Rossland asked and was
tficen $10) tor a baseball game with
Northport, which will be the main
drawing event oi' the day. Another
good item will tic ajuniu- drilling
contest, t r which three lsjc.il teams
arc already cutcrcd. Other sports
arranged for are a few escapades on
the lake, running races on Main
street, bicycle races, horse races,and
tug-ufwnr, winding up witli a ball
In all these event* everything is free,
no entrance fees being charged, and
the prizes are substantial.
Boat and trains from Nelson ai.d
Uossland will arrive here at 11
o'clock. A procession will then be
formed headed by the Rossland and
Slocan bands and paraded through
tha principal streets. Alter that will
follow the general sports. For the
accommodation of those desiring it,
a short excursion on the lake will be
handled by the str. Slocan, lasting
about li hours, for 25 cents. Oil the
return journey passengers for all
points will depart at 8 p.m., so giving nlno hours for general jollification in Slocan. The C.l'.K. are giving a f L5Q rato from Rossland and
single fare from other points, and
exceptional service for the day. The
promises are for a crowd of at least
ooo people here,Rossland holding the
heavy end.

Slocan held another celebration on
Thursday last, ths occasion being a
visit to the city by the business men
of Rossland nnd their friends, who
turned out about 309 strong. The
visit was sprung on the burg as a
surprise and not much time was given
for preparation^ but when the visitors arrived tliey found the place de
coratod, a dancing booth tixed up,
and a short programme of sports arranged for. The magistrate had also
been shanghaied and the policeman's
beat changed to a back street.
Part of thc excursionists went on
up the lake, the C.l'.R.haying given
cheap rates. Ts'ese who remained
here put iu an immense time. There
was walking the greasy pole, tub
and swimming races on the. lake,and
running races on Main street, tlie
Rosslauders scooping the principal
prizes. In tlu; tug of-wur contests,
Slocan hand pulled over their Rossland antagonists, as did also the local
businctis men. Afterwards there was
dancing on the platform at tho whart
both in the afternoon anil evening,
in whieh a big crowd participated,
The Rossland and local bands contributed music during the day and it
was much enjoyed.

While nothing definite has bees
received this weok from the Ontario-
Sleean Lumber Co. relative"1 to the
establishment of their big mill project here, yet some good news for the
town has come from W. B, Strathearn, the local manager of the concern, who visited this place on Tuas-
day. He stated other places wero
pulling strong for the mill, and antagonistic influences were working
against Slocan, vet the companv had
made up their minds to locate here.
He had received a letter from headquarters acquainting him with that
fact, and tliey were but awaiting the
outcome of tlie city's proposals for the
site, to take the initial step.
A meeting of the company for organization purposes had been held,
and J. B. Tudhope. It. P. P. for East
Simcoe, elected president, and Geo.
Chew, of Midland, managing director. The. latter was coming out
here to spend two months this fall in
order to get the mill started. Mr.
Strathearn said he hoped to see every
thing satisfactorily arranged with the
city next month.
The dry ore belt has had the experience this seasoi of having had no
money spent by the government in
thc repairing ot roads and trails.
Since the lecal member, R. F. Green,
joined tlie opposition ranks, the government h.is taken the expenditure
of public monies out of his hands, so
the blame cannot be attached in any
sense to him for the situation here
existing. Last year, when Mr.
Green was with 'he p-twere that he
the work of repairs In this camp was
about com* leted by this time. As it
is now, the bulk of tho assessment
work in tlie camp is completed and
the need bt the trails ia well nigh
over for the season, as in a short
timo the rainy season will have set
in. Much inconvenience has been
put en the prospectors by tho neglect
i.f the necessary annual repairs to
the trails, while to mine owners who
have had to keep up the various wagon roads the expense has beon
heavy, in that thev were doing work
rightly coming within thc province
of the government. It seems a suicidal policy to pursue to cripple a
promising camp because of politics,
if the itting member is not allowed
ta handle tha public monies, then tbo
local reorders should be given the
power tn make the necessary repairs
when required.

A company of British editors, representing the leading papers in thc
Old Country, is touring Canada for
thc purpose of writing up its resources. They are to visit tbe coast
and will return to Revclstuke on
Sept. 4th, leaving that point for Nelson and Rossland. It has liecn
mooted that the editors should have,
their route switched so as to bring
them through Slocan. A banquet
and a visit to the Arlington mine
woultl afford some entertainment to
the visitors, who would thus gain an
idea of the mineral resources of the
ry ore belt.   The camp would got
great deal of advertising from the
.isit of editors, rosultipg in much
good, and every effort stoald be put
forth to get thein hero.

(CapjTlght IOOO by Sir Watter Beaant.)
"Sbe deules that stfe was married."
"Ah! 1 liave heard. In Tact, that
there Is some sort of a story-n cock
and a bull etory-about the wedding."
"Another woman was substituted.
Molly was nt home."
"Another woman? Strange! Why
was she substituted?   W...i was she?"
"I know not. The matter la a mystery. Certain It Is, however, that Lord
r.vllngdale was married. I myself saw
Ihe wedding.   I was in the church.'
"You were In the church?" She
raised her fan for a moment. "You
were In the church? Ami you saw the
weilillng?   Who was the bride?"
"1 do not know. At the time I
thought tt was Molly."
"Jack," she leaned over, looking me
full In the face, "have you no suspicion?"
"None. I cannot understand how all
lu a moment anil when lie found that
Molly was not there the bridegroom
found means to substitute another woman dresss.'d as Molly should have
been.   I cannot understand It."
"It Is, as you say. strange. Do yon
think you will ever flud out?"
"Why not? There an* three persons
In the plot—Lord Fyllngdale. Mr. Purden and tbe woman. One of the two
last will perhaps reveal Ihe truth."
She waa silent for a moment.
"Well, and what are you doing In
"I camo to learn, If I can, something of Lord Pyllngdale's private
"Have you succeeded?"
"He Is a gambler and a rake. He la
rapidly wasting the whole of poor Molly's fortune. In a few months or
weeks it will all be gone."
"Yea," she replied. "All will be
"First be took the money and the
"What?" She sat up suddenly. "He
took the Jewels?"
"He took them first. Then he sold
tbe lands."
"Ob. tell me no more! He Is wasting
and destroying. It is his nature. First
he took the Jewels.   How long ago?"
"Six months ago."
"He has bad the Jewels," she said,
"has bad them for six months?"    Her
face became hard and drawn as with
pain. Her smiling mouth became hard.
The light died out of her eyes. Sbe became suddenly 20 years older. I wondered what this change might mean.
Yon will think that I was a very simple person not to guess more from nil
these Indications. Stie pushed back her
chair and sprang to ber feet. She
walked over to the window and looked
out upon the cold street In which there
were flying flakes of snow. Then she
came back and stood before the Ore.
"You can go," she said harshly, not
looking me In the face. "You can
go." she repeated, forgetting her
proffered hospitality of "tea. "About
that woman. Jack, you may find her
yet. Many a wicked woman bas been
goaded by wrongs Intolerable to confess ber wickedness. I tblnk you may
find her. It will be too late to save
Molly's fortune. But when It Is all
spent there will be a chance for you,
Jack." Shu turned upon ine a wan and
sod smile. "Happy Molly!" she added,
laying her hand upon my arm with the
sweet graclousuess thnt she could command. "Jack," she added, "I think we
mny pity that poor wretch who personated Molly. It was perhaps out of love
for a worthless man. Women nre so.
It Is uot worth or virtue or ability or
character that awakens love and keeps
It alive. A woman. Jack, loves a mnn.
There Is nothing more to be said. If
he Is a good man. so much the better;
If not. still she loves blm." She sighed
heavily. "What do you snllors know
about women? Virtue, fame and fortune ilo not make love, nor, JacU, which
Is a hard thing for you to believe, does
nil the wickedness In the world destroy
lore. A woman may be goaded Into
revenge, but It mnkes ber all the more
unhappy because love remains."
I went nway, musing on tbls woman
who sometimes seemed so true and earnest with all her fashion and affectations, for as she spoke about lore the
tears stood In her eyes as If she was
speaking of ber own case. Hut I never suspected her. I never hnd the least
suspicion of her as the mysterious woman.
I took oars Into the city and went to
my cousin's shop, where there were
half a dozen gentlemen talking volubly
about new books, among them my
friend who hnd taken me to the gaming house nnd to the tavern. When he
saw me, be slipped nsldi*. ''Mr. Pentecrosse," he said, "your cousin reminds
me that I once told him wbat I conlfl
learn concerning au unfortunate poet
named Semple. If you would like to
see him. I think I can take you to
I thanked l.'i.. aud said tbat I would
willingly have speech of Mr. Semple.
So be led me down Little firitaiu and,
by a maze of streets, to a place called Turnagalu lane. He stopped at an
open door. The street In tho waning
light looked squalid and the bouses
"The darling of Parnassus," be said,
"lies In the top chamber. You will And
him there unless I mistake not, because be cann.it conveniently go
So saying he left me, and I climbed
up the dark nnd dirty staircase, some
of tho steps of which had been taken
away for firewood, and presently
found myself at tho top of the last
flight before a closed door. I knocked.
A faint voice bnde me come in.
There wns no fire In tho fireplace;
there was no candle. By the faint light
which struggled through the window I
perceived thnt I was In a garret; that
all the furniture visible was a bed nnd
a man In the bed, a table ami a chair.
On the mantelshelf stood a eaiii'.le-
Btlck without a candle and a tinder
"Who Is it?" asked the man In the
"I am ln search of Sam Semple. Are
you Sam Semple?"
"I know that voice." Tbe man sat up.
"Is It the voice of Jaek Peutecrosse?"
"The same.   Whut cheer, man?"
For all answer he burst out crying
like a child.
"Oh, Jnck," he said, "I am starving.
I made up my mind to stnrve. I have
no longer any clothes. I have not even
a candle. I have no money. I have
not even a sheet of paper to write a
letter, aud I deserve It all—yea, I deserve It all."
"Why. this Is bad. But let me first
get you some food. Then we will talk."
1 went down stairs and found a woman who told me of a shop where I
could get some necessaries, and I presently returned bearing food and a bottle of wine, some coala and candles
and a warm coat, which I thought
would be useful.
By tbe light of tbe candle and tbe
fire I could perceive that tbe condition
of the unhappy poet was miserable Indeed. Never was there a more wretched den of a garret. The plaster had
fallen from the walls, the window was
mostly stuffed with rags In place of
glass—In a word, everything betokened
the greatest extremity of poverty. As
for tbe man himself, he bad neither
coat, waistcoat nor shoes. He sat on
the bed half dressed, but the rest of his
wardrobe had been pawned or sold.
Thero were no books, there were no papers, there was nothing to show his
calling, and there was no sign of food.
At the sight of my basket and its contents tho man fell to. With Just Buch a
rage have I seen n sailor picked up at
sea from an open boat fall upon food
and devour It. Nor did Sam finish till
he hnd devoured the whole of the cold
beef nnd bread, a goodly ration, and
swallowed the whole of tbe bottle of
wlue, a generous allowance. Tben be
breathed a sigh of satisfaction and put
on thc thick coat which I bad bought
for blm.
"Well," I said, "can we now talk?"
"Jack, you have saved my life. But
I shall be hungry again tomorrow.
Lend me a little money."
"I will lend you a guinea or two. But
tell me first how you came here. I
thought you were In the confidence of
a certain noble lord."
"He Is a villain, Jack. He Is tbe
greatest villain unhung. Oh, hanging
Is too good for him! After all I did for
him!   The lying villain'."
"Tell me more. What were you to
get for It?"
"It was I who Invented an excuse
for taking my lord and his friends to
"Yes, I understand. You Invented tbe
spa.  The water In tbe well"—
"The water is very good water. It
could do no harm. I wrote to the doctor. I Invented the analysis, applying
It from another. I told him about tbe
discovery and the things said by tho
newspapers. There was no discovery.
Nobody had heard of the water. No
physician sent nny of his patients tbere.
The only visitors from London were
my lord and his friends."
"They were nil his friends, then?"
"All. Ills reverence Is In the pay of
Beelzebub, I believe. The colonel Is a
bully and a gamester. Sir Harry Is a
well known decoy. Lady Anastasia
shares her bank with Lord Fyllngdale.
They were a nest of sharpers and villains, and their business and mine
was to sprend abroad reports of the
shining virtues of bis lordship."
"All this, or part of it, we found out
or guessed. The vlcnr publicly denounced you all at bis assembly. Bnt

"I wag to havo an appointment under
government of £200 a year at least."
"I was to have It directly after the

"No, and I shall not get it When I
claimed It, his lordship asked me to

anything.   Oh. villain, villain!"
It .seemed as If there was here somo
opening, of whnt nature I knew not.
However, I spoke seriously to Sam. I
pointed out that iu Introducing a broken gamester, a profligate, a mnn of up
honor or principle, the companion of
profligates and gamesters, to the simple folk of Lynn, wbo were ready to believe anything, be had himself been
guilty of an act more villainous even
than the breaking of this contract. 1
gave him, bowever, a guinea for present necessities, and 1 promised blm 5
guineas moro If he would write a history of the whole business so fnr aa he
was concerned. And I undertook to
lenve this money with my cousin, the
bookseller, to be paid over to blm on
receiving tbe manuscript
And, this business arranged, I bad
notblng more to do with London. I
had been, however, ns you shall presently learn, more successful thnn I myself understood, for I had learned by
actual presence tbe dally life and conversation of this noble lord, aud I bad
laid thc foundation for a proof of the
conspiracy to disguise his true character, and, whnt was much more Important, I had unwittingly flreil the mind
of tbe mysterious woman herself wltb
resentment and Jealousy.
We were now, Indeed, although we
knew It not, very near to the end of
these troubles.
I returned with tbe satisfaction of
bringing with me tbe confession of the
conspiracy which we bad long known.
Still It is one thing to know of a conspiracy and quite another thing to
hnve a plain confession by one of the
chief conspirators. You may Imagine
that tbe poet was not long In writing
out a full and complete confession and
ln claiming the 5 guineas of my cousin,
wbo took tbe liberty of reading the
document nnd of witnessing his signature before he gnve up the money.
One after the other the victims of
Lord Pyllngdale's perfidy and of tbelr
own wickedness came over, so to speak,
to the otber side, impelled by rage and
the desire for revenge, and made confession. Tbe first was our old friend
Sam; the second wns Colonel Looyon.
Like the poet, be also fell upon evil
days. But, less lucky than Sam. be
had lost his liberty p.nd was now a prisoner for debt In the King's Bench prison.
Tbe voice of the third confederate
followed. It was a voice from the
tomb. Sir Henry Malyns. the poor old
beau who had lived for 80 years In
the world of fnsblon. who bad spent
bis patrimony and had in the end been
reduced to tbe miserable work of a decoy, as you have heard, waa at last
summoned to render an account of bis
life. He repented of his degradation
as the secret servant of Lord Fyllngdale; he repented of bis share In the
deception which led to the promise, If
not the performance, of marriage between his patron nnd Miss Molly. And
be dictated to some one who attended
blm In his last moments a brief note,
which was accepted In tbe spirit of forgiveness which he desired.
Next came the Itev. Benjamin Purden. A. M„ In a truly Impudent letter to
Captain Crowle, wblcb tbe captain read
to us all. Tbe reverend gentleman exposed tbe wbole scheme.
Y this time a wbols
year bad passed since
tbe pretended marriage aud our submission. Never was a
magnificent property
so destroyed and dl
mlnlsbed in so short a
time. Farms, lands, bouses, were sold
for wbat they would fetch —at half
tbelr value, a quarter of tbelr value.
All tbe money out at mortgage had
been called In; all the money received
at the quay and thc counting bouse
had been sent to his lordship's attorneys. In one short twelvemonth the
destruction bad been sueh that In June
there was actually nothing left—notblng out of tbat princely fortune except
tbe fleet of ships and the general business.
It was on the 15th of June—I remember the date well and shall always remember It The Lady of Lynn had arrived two days beforo and we were
moored off the quay. At 2 o'clook or
thereabout one of the stable boys
Irom the house came alioard bringing
a messnge for me. A Indy lodging at
the Crown desired to see me Immediately. The lady had arrived In tbe
evening In a post chaise, having with
ber a maid. Sbe had given uo name,
but In the morning hnd asked If my
ship was In port. and. ou lenrnAig that
It was, she desired that a boy from the
stables might carry this message to
I landed at our own quay. I say our
own, but It wns no longer ours— that
is, Molly's quay. At tlie door of tbe
counting house stood the manager In
conversation with tbe captain of one of
our ships. He beckoned me to spenk
wltb him. When he hnd finished his
discourse wltb tbe captain, he turned
to me.
"Mr. Pentecrosse." he said, "the worst
bas now begua Tell Captain Crowle.
1 should choke If I bad to tell lit in.
Alas, poor man! It seems as If the
work of his life wns ruined and destroyed." So saying, be handed me a
letter to read. It was from my lord's
attorneys, Messrs. HI sic & Soil "I
suppose," said tbe inannger. "thnt they
are really acting for tils lordship,
Tbelr power of attorney cannot be dented, con It? Mr. Redman, out aitor
ney, says tbat tbere Is uotblng lur It
but obedience."
Tbe letter was short:

"A draft for moneys In hand!" cried
the manager. "There nre no moneys
In hand! And 1 hnve to sell Without
delay n mil ship, cargo and all as she
stands. Without delay! Who Is to
buy Hint ship—without delay?"
I returned him the letter and shook
my bead. My ship perhaps was the
one to be sold. She was tbe latest arrival. She was filled with wtno. The
cargo belonged altogether to the bouse.
So I should be turned adrift wheu Just
within hall, so to spenk, of becoming a
captain. 1 could sny nothing In consolation or In hope. I walked away, my
heart as heavy as lead. Never before
had I felt the true meaning of this ruin
and wnstc. All around me the noble
edifice built by Molly's grandfather
nnd her fnther and continued by her
guardian had been palled down bit by
But one felt the loss of a farm or
a house very littlo. lt was not until
the ships, too, were* threatened that the
full enormity of the thing, tho Incredible wickedness of the conspirators, was
borne lu upon my mind. It threatened
to ruin mc, you see, ns well ns Molly.
Therefore 1 walked across the market place to the Crown Inn more gloomy
in ray mind thnn I enn describe. Hitherto, somehow, a ship seemed safe. No
one would Interfere with a sblp. Like
Lord Fylingdnle himself. I' was ready
to ask whether a ship could be bought
and sold-thnt is to say. I knew Unit
she was often bought aud sold, but 1
never thought that any of Molly's ships
- nny other ships ns much ns you
plense, but not Molly's ships—could be
brought to the hammer.
The Indy sent word that she would
receive me. Imagine my surprise. She
was none other than the Lady Aiuistn
sla. She was greatly changed in six
nionihs. I had seen her last you re
member, In January, when I met her
In the park. She was then finely dressed, a handsome woman, with a winning
manner and a smiling face. Thus Bhe
was when I met her. When 1 left her.
she was a handsome woman marred
with a consuming wrath.
Now I should hardly have known
ber. She was plainly attired, without
patches or paint, wearing a gray silk
dress. But the chief change was not
In ber dress, but lu ber face. She was
pale, aud ber cheeks were haggard
She looked like a woman who hail recently suffered a severe illness and
was, Indeed, not yet fully recovered.
"Jack"—she advanced, giving me her
hand wilh ber old graolousnesa—"you
are very good to come when 1 call. It
Is the last time that you will obey any
call from me."
"Why the last time, madam?"
"Because, Jack. I am now going to
mnke thee my bitter enemy-yes, my
enemy for life." Sbe tried to smile,
but her eyes grew humid. "1 can never be regarded henceforth as anything
else. You will despise me; you will
curse me.   Vet I must needs apeak."
■•Madam. 1 protest I know not what
yoo mean."
"And I, Jack, I protest I know not
how to begin. Do you remember last
January, wben we talked together?
Let me begin tbere—yes. It will bs* best
lo begin there. I tlo not tblnk I could
begin at the other end li would tie
like a bath of lee cold water In January."
"I remember onr conversation, madam."
"You told me—what was It you told
me? Something nbout a certain box or
case of Jewels."
"Molly's Jewels. Yes. I told you how
his lordship seized upon them at the
first wben he claimed control over Molly's fortune."
"Yoo told me that It wns In January. He had seized upon tbem six
months before. The thing surprised
me. He lind always toltl mo thai he
could not get those jewels, and. Jack,
you see. they were my own."
"Yours, madam? But they were Molly's."
"Not at all. Molly after her mnr-
rlage hnd nothing. All became my
lord's property. Tbe Jewels werp mine.
Jack, mine by promise and compact"
I understood nothing.
"I bnve seen In Prance the women
kneeling at the boxes where they confess to the priest. Jack, will you be

I could never confess to Molly, though
I have wronged her. Jack, oh, my

Water la tbe most precious thing tu
Palestine, and the laws which protect
springs and wells are y.-i-y aev. .v.
Most of the wells ure artificial. Well
men r.t very great expense have eh Is
eied basins aud reservoirs out of the
rocks to receive the flow from springs,
nnd iu many places where uo springs
could be found they have drilled
through the limestone a hundred feet
and sometimes twice thnt distance to
the artesian basin.
None but very rich sheiks can afford
such an expenditure. Nevertheless,
they have not only been tbe greatest
benefactors of their fellow men, but
those who have sunk wells and built
fountains have erected monuments to
their fame more enduring than palaces
or temples or shafts of granite.
The temple of Solomon lias vanished
forever, but the pools whieh be walled
up with masonry aud filled with water
still remain. The wells that Abraham
and Jacob drilled In the rock as acts
of piety ns well ns power are as Immortal as their names and will live forever as loug as meu feel thirst.
According to a Just custom of the
country, water rights could uever be
forfeited. No man who owned a well
might refuse bts neighbor water for
his family or his flocks, but the lord
of the spring was Inviolate. No creditor or enemy could take tils water
rights away from blm. To Injure or
fill up a well was an unpardonable*
crime. Wben the PliihVtlhes threw
