Next Tuesday tho Liberals of the
Sloean riding will meet at New Denver for the second time. The convention is the result of R. A. Bradshaw,
the party nominee, resigning from the
candidature. What decision the party
will com* to is not known outside of
the elect, but it is believed an earnest
effort will be made to bring out another candidate.
ln any event there is a large percentage of the former Liberal vote
lost, having now gone to the Conservatives. Should a decision be arrived
at by the convention not to nominate,
still more of tho faithful will voto for
Bill Hunter, as tho representative of
party line polities. In fact, the majority of the Liberal vote ia the various towns will lie east for the Conservative candidate, in the event of their

suid Adams, "there can be no ults'i-

present a claim for services rendered.
1 should feel justified in allowing a

i.hristine thanked him, and suffered
hlin to pass on.
Later in the evening, Faul Way-
brook came ov«-r, and sat with Christine in the little drawing-room where
they hnd passed their happiest hours
of life. They talked over the whole
matter, and Christine related what
tho administrator had told her.

"Don't fear opposition from my father," said Paul, in reply to Christine's words, "If my father— But
he will not—he dare not."
".Iter a pause, he arose and walked
to and fro across the floor. He was
evidently taking a full estimate of
his father's character.
"Christine," he at length said, sitting down once more by her si sle,
"my father has given his consent to
our union. Neither you nor 1 was
responsible for the cause which Influenced him thon, nor can responsibility be laid to our doors in this pre?
sent case. If lie withdraws that consent,  I will marry  you without it."
''I am resolved, darling. No power of earth shall separate us?"
Christine, who loved him so deeply
und so devotedly, and who felt that
her ull of life was bound up in him,
could only rest her head upon his
bosom. Vet he had not lifted the
burden from her heurt. She who
must, if suffering came, bear the passive purt, had no strength of will
but to endure. She hud read her
doom in the coldness ol the father,
and though the impassioned vow of
her Issver wus grateful to her soul,
she durid riot accept it us authority

Had there been parties at hand of
Madame Rachel's kin, or had there)
been even one strong man, with
i-ool and level head, deeply interested
enough to demand and pursue investigation without fear or favor, many
incidents connected with the closing
days of tha deceased, and especially
connected with the matter of tha
will, which were now suffered to pass
lightly away, might have been dragged up to new and atartllng proportions.
Christine, the party most directly
interested, could not act for herself,
Every sense of modesty and decency
forbade lt. She knew that ln truth
she was but a nameless foundling
that she had been all the yeara of
her Ufa an humble dependent upon
Madame Rachel's bounty, and that,
under the question of stem right, aha
had claim only to gratitude for fav.
ors already received, rather than
claim for favors ln the future. In
short, when brought face to face with
the bare facts of her life, she ahrank
from publicity ns the true heart ever
shrinks from the exposure of inherited misfortunes.
Br. Arkwright, though a true
friend, and plainly conversant with
affairs at the Hrooksido, wns not the

ITon. Nathun Waybrook hud an interest at stake, and he was. moreover, amply qualified for the work Of
Investigation; but his pride stood in
his way. Had Christine been a legal
heir, so that the investigation might
have beijun and ended with tho will,
he would undoubtedly huve entered
into the work; but he saw plainly
thut the very first, steps of opposition—should opposition he made—
would l.e to question the maiden's inherent right. This would bring tho
iruth to the surface, and it would bo

Of the household there were none to
help, did Hagar hud followed Tom
to tho silent shore, and Lora was
nlone left to boar her young mistress company. But Lora could do
nothing toward lifting the vail that
darkened tho future. Sho had se*en
two old wills destroyed, and knew
that Mndame Rachel had ordered
their destruction, but sho Itnew nothing of any new will. She had
been sent to summon the two workmen from the garden, but she could
not declare for what the.v had been
summoned, nor did she know that
they had been admitted to Rachel's
presence. She had only conducted
them to an ante-chamber, where Mr.
Halford bad received them.
.lohn Downey, tho gardener, wus of
account only so far as he threw a
very uncertain and misdirecting glimmer upon the disappearance of Eben

"And I think," he said, "that they

consistent, the more so as he fortified hi*- opinion with the fancies wl Icb,
from his own prejudices, he hnd magnified into facts. And so tlii« rir-
cumstnnce, which, under rigid scrutiny, might have led to grave suspicious in other directions, wus, in
the end, passed over as of no material  consequence.
Only one other person remained
who was at all interested in, or cognizant of, the merits of tlie case, and
that wns Caspar Hugo.
Wo would not forget Paul Waybrook, But his interest was not of a
kind to be considered under the circumstances. Moreover, his father
would not suiter him to interfere.
Once the youth had ventured upon
tho declaration that he would tnke
the law in the case upon his own responsibility. Ordinarily, Mr. Waybrook, senior, would have been
wroth at such a manifestation of filial disrespect, but in the present in-
stance ho regurdod it simply us an
ebullition of precocious obstreperous-
niss, und, with an ironic smile, he
usi.e.l tlio young man how old he
was. Paul guessed that he lucked
two weeks of being one-und-twonty;
and the reflection came crushing upon him that ho was as yet but a
child in the eyi's of the law.
.So Caspar Hugo was the only remaining man to whom inquiry o uld
be directed. We will pass over tho
muny interviews held by other parties, and come to the final consultation with the clerk by the Hon. Mr.
Waybrook. Thus far, Hugo had sustained his reputation as an honest,
upright and devoted clerk, and Nullum Wuy brook, fancying that ho
possessed great tact in reading human charnctor, exprsssi-d himself ns
thankful that llalford's business had
been left In such capable hands
There hud lieen no loophole through
which a possible suspicion could nt
t.ich to the clerk. The secretion or
destruction of a will would not seem
to hnvo benefited hiin, not in tho
least; but, rother, he should have expected benefit from the presence of a

Mr. Waybrook opened his business.
He did not wish to be Intrufivo; but
he wished the utmost) possible
nmount isf light, with n view to a
final settlement of the matter in his
own mind.
Caspar Hugo bade the merchant to
proceed Uo would give all the light
he hod to gi\u, and ho would render
any assistance lhat lay in his power,
And he would slo it ull with the utmost cheerfulness,
"Iiai you think it possible," asked
Waybrook, "that Mr. Halford could
have written a will at Madame Ra-
dii'l's dictation without your knowledge? "
"Such a thing would huvo been ut-
leily Impossible," answered tho
clerk/ emphatically, but very politely.
"Then it, Is your own private opinion that no now will was made?"
pursued the merchant.

Half way between the fort and the
Arizona border lies Lindell's Rest It
ls a low wooden building, dull yellow
like the sun buied plains around, and
tbere isn't even a cactus sprout to east
a shadow near it.
j    Saturday uight at Lindell's Is a thing
to dream of  evermore once one bas
1 lived through It—the crazy, witching
i Mexican music; the dancers with tbelr
lithe, southern grace; the violet smoke
rings curling over all; I.indell himself.
j tall and thin, with his happy eyes and
j everlasting cigarette—and Lollta.
She was seventeen the summer Lln-
j ds'U came to San Luis; a slim Mexican
i girl, with long lushed, teusing eyes of
j velvety brown and dusky balr curling
amtind her small, piquant face.
I.indell    was   merely   a    gentleman
, tramp In those days, one of the crowd
of boys who drift here and there once
the spirit of the gypsy is upon theni,
accomplishing    nothing,    caring    for
( nothing, but happy and true hearted
nnd quick to lend a helping hand when
11 call conies.   He and Ted Xorris came
, down together, with plenty of grit, but
I neither cash nor credit, except at the
low. yellow half way house where old
Msinut'lo kept ogen Inn with his daughter. Lollta.
I Those things happen of themselves—
moonlight on the little rough veranda,
Lollta singing comical little snatches
of American songs in her soft* broken
English, under Lindell's tutelage, with
her small brown lingers playing lightly
on her mandolin:
"1 cant tell why I love you, but I do-0-0;
There lotta girl ln town so swes*t liko
But there BomothlnR I can't tell,
8s'em to hole me In It spell.
I can't tell why I luve you, but I do-0-0."
I.imi i'U would smoke and smoke and
look up at her as she snug, lazy and
happy and full of a joyous, don't eare
Irresponsibility that comes to one,
somehow, with the climate down there,
and tlie music aud the white, strange
One Saturday I.indell and Norris
rods.' away to town, seventeen miles
away, with n pr, 111 lse to ret urn In
time for the slaiiec. Lollta watched
them out of sight, and Maiutclo laughed when he beard her singing. She
was the prettiest girl tliis side tlie
border. Tbe American boy was clear
eyed nnd young nnd quick to laugh.
If lhey loved, why not? There were
the house and a good bunch of money
when he was gone, and little Lollta
would slug evermore. lie smiled
shrewdly.   Maybe, perhaps, qiiien sulie?
At 7 the mull conch from Ban Luis
drew up nt tlie yellow house, and a girl
alighted. Lollta was Bring a hot shot
of smiles and repartee nt the driver,
Billle Slogan, when she saw her and
slopped short. The stranger was fnlr
and blue eyed, and, though the Indian
Bummer day had been hot and dusty,
sl 1 e looked cool and elmrming.
Lollta was dressed I'or thu dunce.
She wore yellow and had wound a
long red silk scarf about her shoulders, crossed It and tied It below her
waist on one hip. Billle luul just told
her she looked like one of the little
dark red roses lhe ladles wear lu
their balr over nt San Luis on the
plaza when she caught sight of this
oilier girl, und sill' hoped I.indell would
not seo her.   Tilers' wns n difference.
Mr. I.inilell and Mr, Norris? Oh. yes,
Lollta told ber The.v were living
there.   Thoy had gone for 11 ride, Just
II short ride, she lii'ougbt 11 chnlr out
on ilu veranda and talked with the
stranger after the couch had gone.
She called I.indell Allan, thi*; girl, nnd
Norris Ted. and she hoped tin.,' would
return soon.
"Vou have not seen hlin for n long
time, yes'/" snld Lollta, her eyes full
of a half frightened suspicion.
"Not for a yeur," said tbe otbor softly.    "We bad only lies'll niurried 11 few
months when he went away.   It seem-
i ed   better,   you   know.    He   was   so
. young, and he thought he could make
a fortune out here.   I guess he hasn't.
Lolitn laughed. It was comical to
: think of Lludell making a fortune or
anything else. It was growing dark.
and already a few couples had made
their appearance and passed indoors,
with a gay greeting to Manuelo's
daughter. The strange girl looked at
them curiously.
•It Is the dance," said Lollta shortly.
resenting the amused surprise In the
other's eyes. She would show her she
was not afraid to speak his name as
she had. "Al-luln. he like to dance lots
with me."
"Yes":" The stranger looked at her
kindly. "1 do not wonder at it. You
nre 11 dear, with those big brown eyes.
Anil the other-does he dance too'/"
"Who—Ted? No, 110. He Is not one
hit like I.indell. He Is still and nil
way off somewhere. He uever eare to
dance." ,
The music had begun, and tbe bine
eyed girl rose hesitatingly. "I wisli I
could go and meet them. I want to surprise him, you know. Could I?"
i Lolitn rose, too. In quick, hot anger.
They would meet and he would take
her iu his anus and kiss her. Sbe
thought of last night and the night before and tbe nights before for weeks.
Was It for this Lindell hnd sung and
laughed witn her and told her her lips
I were the sweetest In nil the world?
I "Suddenly she looked nt the fair, ealin
face beside her, aud n flood of wild, unreasoning Jealousy swept over her. She
pointed southward.
"If you walk that way straight on to
There the ground slips and the cacti
•w tall you will meet them." sbi
told her. "It Is only a short way. lou
cannot miss them. It is only two or
three miles to the uext house, and they
may have stopped there."
After the girl had gone she went In
to the dance, laughing, with the lie
fresh on her lips. There wns no house
for thirty miles thut way, and once
she hud passed the giant cacti sbe
would go down Into Death valley, that
terrible wilderness whero only the
snakes and the 011a monsters and tarantulas could dwell in safety. One
nlgbt spent tbere, aud Lindell might
cull and cry for his wife in vain,
Never was' tbere such a dunce at
Manuelo's as thut Saturday night. Lollta danced and sang with feverish gay-
ety, her eyes ever on tbe door, watching for Lindell. Then suddenly, nt tbe
very height of the merriment, she was
missed. Out Into the clear, bright night
she went silently to the shed where
tbe horses stood, and, choosing her own
rough little mustang, she mounted aud
rode away towurd Deuth valley.
If Lindell loved this fair, blue eyed
girl, he would hate her for sending her
to ber death. The thought terrified ber.
Anything but his hate, she thought;
anything but tbe look ln bis eyes when
be knew. And was It not right? She
wus fulr like him and gentle voiced.
She was not a Mexican girl to smoke
a clgnrettsj wltb and sing to In th*
moonlight and laugh wben her lora
was won.
She caught her breath In deep sobs,
uud the teurs fell ou the mustang's
brown neck ns she urged him on over
the miles tbat lay between them and
the valley, and nt lust there were the
giant cacti ahead, guarding the em-
trance to the valley like grim Bentinels.
Shi' turned toward (hem bravely, but
before the mustang hnd gone a dozen
paces past them he reined und backed
nwny from something that lay upon
lhe ground.
Lollta knelt nud en light ber breath as
her hand touched the bnnd of the
strange girl. It wns warm, and she
raised hor head upon her lap. The
blue eyes opened wonderingly.
"It wns sueh a long wny, nnd I could
not find thom." she said faintly. "You
did not know It was so fur, did yon?"
Lolitn pressed a kiss on the band
she held. It wns a white, dainty hand.
No wonder Lindell loved It. She helped
her up to the saddle, and with one arm
around her for Support she guided the
mustang blicll user the long stretches
of sand nnd mm baked nlkull on
through the ulglll until the lights nt
Manuelo's showed like (hollies against
the sappnire dnrfenewi of the skive.
Miinuelo could tell you the rest-
how the two Americans returned at
midnight, and Just as they were to lend
the search for Lollta there came tbe
thre-e figures through the moonlight,
and Lolitu fell at Lindell's feet.
"I bring her back to you." she said
pleadingly. But It was Norris wbo
sprang to tbe stranger's side wltb a
glad cry. and Lindell held the Mexican
girl I11 bis anus there before them all
and told her she wns all In all to blm.
.So that is wby lt Is Lindell's Rest
now. and if you stop there on yopr
way to tbe fort or to San Luis old
Miinuelo will tell you how It hnppened
over n little glass of tbe deep red .Mex-
Icnn wine be loves nnd bid you sliuke
hands with his handsome soil-In law.
And If you nre courteous and pleasant
Lolita will flash a smile up nt you
from under her long, dark lashes.
And Lindell? He is perfectly trappy
and full of a gay. careless content that
comes but seldom lo a man In ths
world. It cotues with the moonlight
and the music dowu there—nnd Lolitn.

said the Kohnrk philosopher. Just a hit
sarcastically, "and 1 found my nephew
Lntber nnd his estimable wire still

they were quarreling about when I
was tbere before. The only change
that 1 wus able to detect was that,
while In the first place tbey npp»ured
to know whnt tbey were jangling
nbout. by this timo they seemed to
have forgotten what tbe original bone
of contention was. and tbey were quarreling mouotonously nlong without any
wny of knowing wben tbey had finished.
"Well, when my appearance interrupted tbem Luther was sttirtsiod to see
how much thinner I had grown lu four

they went, quarreling over that, and
the original question was shelved for
good and all. I came away feeling amply repaid for taking the trip. It is a

monotony and giving tbem something

A certain sportsman took a shooting

a good sporting territory. When he arrived this was s-sirroliorats'd by the

last he sold angrily, "Are tbere many
rhinoceroses on tbe estate?" "Shure,
yer 'onner," drawled Fnt very slowly,
"not many, not mnny," but brightening
up, "you may put up two or three round
the lake In tbe summer." Long before
the summer, of course, the tenancy
would be at an end. "You confounded

Toil of a Run-down System anil Exhausted Nerves-Strength
Comes With the Use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
To   many people peculiar spoils of
dizziness  and  weakness  ore a. source
of a    >si   'oily annoyance und   distress.   Sc  .    see flushes ol  lieht before  theni,    and    become  blind     and
dazzled ;     others   experience     severe
attacks of headache.    The cause    is
exhaustion    of    the  nervous    system
and deficiency   in   the   quality    and
quantity of blood,   in all such cases
Dr.  1'tuise's  Nerve  Food  is thc most
certain us well as the most thorough
cine obtainable.
Mrs.  SymonSi    43 Ht.  Clair street,
Belleville     Ont.,      states:      "Some
weeks nun I began a courso ol treatment wiih  Iii    Chaso's Nerve Food,
and   found   it    n very    satisfactory
medicine      l   was tormorl>   troubled
wiih nor.'otis exhaustion and a weak,
fluttering heart,   Whenever nn   heart
bothered  ma'  I   would have spells of
: weakness  and  dlvxiness,   which   were
j very distressing.     By means ol tln--
| treatment    my   nerves have   become
j strong,  nnil  tin* action  of the heart
' seems to be regular.     1  can recommend Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food as an
excellent   medicine."
Mrs.   .1 iin. s     Clancy, 714    Water
Street.   I'll,.i lioroiigll.   Ont.,   BtatOS :—
I have used four boxes of Or.
Chase's Nerve Food, and found
theni an excellent medicine. 1 was
troubled more or less for nineteen
years with severe headaches, which
mude me useless as far as accomplishing my work was concerned.
"The nerve food seemed to build
tne up generally, and so made a
thorough cure of my old trouble. I
would not think of being without
Dr, Chase's Nerve Food ln the
house, und would strongly recom*
mend anyone suffering as I did to
give it a trial, it succeeded in my
en*!' after a great many remedies
hud failed."
To the thousands of women who
ure victims of nervous headache
this letter should prove of tnostim-
ahle value. If they will but follow

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER llth, 1.10.'.
KlUiOltlil.   -JUOl'FINUS.
Neil McCallum, tin* Grit noniinoe in
the Grand Forks riding", has had
enough of the game of politics and
quit. He know enough to get in out
of the wet.
there are no appeals to he heard on
the new voters' lists, they Beak the
earliest opportunity possible to secure
the people's judgment on their policy.
They will )>» sustained without a shadow of a doubt, and it will be the best
thitig that lias ever happened the pro-
viace, for it will restore public* confidence. The Grits howled at first, that
the Conservatives were holding ollice
by su (Trance, and were delaying the
elections; now tliey are whining like
spanked children because the wicked
Tories have anticipated their -irislias.
The people, however, welcome the
change, realizing that the sooner the
turmoil is over the bettor. Conservatives have no fear of the issue. Tliey
have a solid platform, a clear cut pol-
'icy, and able candidates in the various
constituencies in support of their
cause. The Slocan riding comes within that category, for in William Hunter the party has a candidate in whom
all circles of the community place the
utmost confidence. He is a man ol
his word and will <lo as he Kays. Give
him your support and you will never
have cause to regret it.
The British war office has decided
that no South African war medals
shall be given men who did not see
ssrvice at the front.
A law is on the statutes, promoted
by the Conservatives, making election
day a holiday, and ensuring all workingmen timo and opportunity to exercise their franchise. Vote for Hunter
and endorse his party's legislation.
Should the Laurier government
again disallow the B.C. act, passed on
the lines of the Natal statute, for the
exclti-sion of Mongolians, the Conservatives stand pledged to re-enact it. A
vote for Hunter shows you endorse
that stand.
That the Conservatives will control
tbe legislature after the election is a
' foregono conclusion.    In  supporting
and electing Hunter, the electors know
• that his promises can and will Im fulfilled. A vote given to his opponents
is simply thrown away.
The Conservatives will navar consent to the C.P.K. securing the disputed land grants in East Kootenay,
beliating that they should lie kept for
tha people. William Hunter will
support that policy, and it behooves
the peoplo to vote for him.
Ex-ministers Blair and Tarte votsd
against the Laurier government last
week on the Grand Trunk Pacific
deal. Tho former's constituents have

The Lib'ial maalfosto issued last

electorate cannot bu blinded to that
fact. Moreover, the electors believe
the Conservatives will put their arcti
cles of faith into practice.
