(Bv an occasional correspondent)
Considering the evidonco of those
concerned in the future welfare of the
Slocan and picturesque New Denver,
Silverton, Slocan City and Nakusp in
particular, it is ��� matter of no little
surprise to observe tbe apathy amongst
the trading community and property
owners not advertising to the world its
many natural and commercial attractions, If this course were adopted I
have no hesitation in prognosticating
satisfai tory results. I would suggest
that an association, such as Mr. Nelson
proposed in a previous letter, be formed
in each ramp for this special purpose.
It was hy this enterprising method
that Vancouver end Viotoria were
largely developed, and to which their
prosperous conditions to-day may be

his people expected a fight and were
preparing for it. Count Halfont hastily called tbe ministers together, and
Lorry and the princess took part ln
their deliberations. General Marlanx
represented the army, and It was he
who finally asked to bave Baldos
brought before the council.
The Iron Count plainly Intimated that
the new guard was in a position to
transmit valuable information to the
enemy. Colonel Quinnox sent for him,
and Baldos was soon standing in the
presence of Yetive and her advisers.
He looked about him with a singular
smile. The one whom he was supposed
to regard as the princess was not in
the council chamber. Lorry opened tbe
examination at the request of Count
Halfont, the premier. Baldos quietly
answered the questions concerning his
present position, his age, his term of
enlistment and his interpretations of
tbe obligations required of bim.
"Ask him who he really is," suggested the Iron Count sarcastically.
"We can expect but one answer to
ihat question," said Lorry, "and that
is the one which he chooses to give."
"My name is Baldos���Paul Baldos,"
Bald the guard, but he said it in such a
way that uo one could mistake his appreciation of the fact that he could give
one name as well as another and still
serve his own purposes.
"That is lie number oue," observed
Marlanx loudly. Every eye was turned
upon Baldos, but his face did not lose
Its half mocking expression of serenity.
"Proceed with the examination, Mr.
Lorry," said Count Halfont, interpreting u quick glance from Yetive.
"Are you willing to answer any aud
all questions we may usk in connection
with your observations since you became a member of the custle guard?"
asked Lorry.
"I am."
"Did you take especial care to study
the Interior of the fortress when you
were there several days ago'/"
"I did."
"Have you discussed your observations with any one since that time?"
"I have."
"With whom?"
"With ber highness the princess,"
said Baldos without a quiver. There
was a moment's silence, and furtive
looks were cast In the direction of Yetive, whose face was a study. Almost
instantaneously the entire body of listeners understood that he referred to
Beverly Calhoun. Baldos felt that he
had been summoned before the board
at the instigation of his fair protectress.
"Aud your Impressions have gone no
"They have not, sir. It waB most
"Could you accurately reproduce the
plans of the fortress?"
"I think so. It would be very simple."
"Have you studied engineering?"
"And you could scientifically enumerate the defects in tbe construction of
the fort?"
"It would not be very difficult, sir."
"It has come to our ears that you
consider the fortress weak In several
particulars. Have you so stated at
any time?"
"I told the princess that the fortress
Is deplorably went. In fact, I think
I mentioned that it conld be taken with
ease." He was uot looking at Count
Marlanx, but be knew that the old
man's eyes were flaming. Then he
proceeded  to  tell  the  board   how  he
could overcome the fortress*.elaborat
ing on bis remarks to "BeTerly. The
ministers listened lu wonder to the
words of this calm, indifferent young
"Will you oblige us by making ���
rough draft of the fort's Interior?" ask*
ed Lorry niter a solemn pause. Baldos took t. paper aud in remarkably
quick time ew tlie exact lay of the
fortress. The sketch went the rounds
and apprehensive look* were exchanged by the ministers.
"It is accurate, by Jove," exclaimed
Lorry. "I doubt If a dweller lu the
fort could do better. You must have
been very observing."
"Aud very much interested," snarled
"Only so far as I Imagined my observations might be of benefit to some
oue else," said Bnldos coolly. Again
silence was like death.
"Do you kuow what you are saying, Baldos?" asked Lorry after a moment.
"Certainly, Mr. Lorry. It is the duty
of any servant of her hlghuess to give
her all thnt he has ln hlm. If my observations can be of help to her I feel
in duty bound to make tbe best of
them for her sake, not for my own."
"Perhaps you can suggest modifications in the fort," snarled Marlanx.
"Why don't you do It, sir, and let us
have the benefit of your superior intelligence? No, gentlemen, all this prating of loyalty need not deceive us," he
cried, springing to his feet. "The fellow is nothing more nor less tban an
Infernal spy, and tbe Tower is the place
for him!   He can do no harm there."
"If It were my Intention to do harm,
gentlemen, do you imagine that I
should withhold my information for
days?" asked Baldos. "If I am a spy
you may rest assured that Count Mar-
lanx's kindnesses should not have been
so long disregarded. A spy does not
believe in delays."
"My���my kindnesses?" cried Marlanx.   "What do you mean, sir?"
"I mean this, Count Marlanx," said
Baldos, looking steadily Into the eyes
of the head of the army. "It was kind
and considerate of you to admit me to
the fortress, no matter in what capacity, especially at a critical time like this.
You did uot know me, you had no way
of telling whether my intentions were
honest or otherwise, and yet I was permitted to go through the fort from end
to end. No spy could wish for greater
generosity than that."
Au almost Imperceptible smile went
arouud the table, aud every listener
but one breathed more freely. The
candor and boldness of the guard won
the respect and confidence of all except
Marlanx. The Iron Count was white
with anger. He took the examination
out of Lorry's hands and piled the
stranger with insulting questions, each
calm answer making him more furious
than before. At last, in sheer Impotence, he relapsed into silence, waving
his baud to Lorry to Indicate that he
might resume.
"You will understand, Baldos, that
we have some cause for apprehension,"
said Lorry, Immensely gratified by the
outcome of the tilt. "Y'ou are a stranger, aud, whether you admit it or not,
there Is reason to believe that you are
not what you represent yourself to
"I am a humble guard at present, sir,
and a loyal one. My life is yours
should I prove otherwise."
Y'etive whispered something in Lorry's ear at this juncture. She was visibly pleased and excited. He looked
doubtful for an instant and then apparently followed her suggestion, regardless of consequences.
"Would you be willing to utilize your
knowledge as an engineer by suggesting means to strengthen the fortress?"
The others stared in fresh amazement.
Marlanx went as white as death.
"Never!" be blurted out hoarsely.
"I will do anything the princess commands me to do," said Baldos easily.
"Y'ou mean that you serve her only?"
"1 serve her first, sir. 1 f she were here
she could commund me to die, and
there would be an end to Baldos." And
he smiled as he said It. Tho real princess looked at him with a new, eager
expression, us If something had just
become clear to ber. There was a
chorus of coughs aud a round of sly
"She could hardly ask you to die,"
said Yetive, addressing him for tho
first time.
"A princess Is like April weather,
madam," sam Bnldos, with rare humor, and the laugh was general. Yetive resolved to talk privately with this
excellent wit before the hour was over.
She was confident that lie knew her to
he the princess.
"I would like to ask the fellow another question," said Marlanx, fingering his sword hilt nervously. "You say
you serve the princess. Do you mean
by that that you imagine your duties
us a soldier to comprise dancing polite
attendance within the security of
these walls?"
"I believe I enlisted as a member of
the castle guard, sir. The duty of the
guard is to protect the person of the
ruler of Graustark and to do that to
the death."
"It is my belief that you are a spy.
You cau show evidence of good faith
by enlisting to fight against Dawsbergen nud hy shooting to kill," said the
count, with a sinister gleam lu his
"And If I decline to serve ln any
other capacity than the oue I now"���
"Then I shall brand you as a spy aud
a coward,"
"Y'ou hnve already called me a spy,
your excellency. It will not make it
true, let me nilil, If you call tne u coward. I refuse to take up urms against
either Dawsbergen or Axphaln."
The remark created a profound sensation.
"Then you are employed by both in

"1 am employed as a guard for her
royal highness," said Bslilos. with a
square glance at Yetive, "and not as a

A Curious Bit of History Wrapped
Up In the Word.
The making of silhouettes can hardly be classed among the lost arts, since
there is so little art about tbem. The
best of them represent tbe human profile in a crude way, an*i they were regarded as rather a cheap kind of pictures even in the days when they were
most popular. Indeed, the very word
silhouette means something poor and
cheap, and it had its origin in a spirit
of ridicule. It is taken from Etienne
de Silhouette, wli* was a French cabinet minister iu the year 1759, when
the treasury of Ftance was very low
because of costly wars with Britain
and Prussia and by the extravagances
of the government. When Etienne de
Silhouette became minister of finance
be set about making great reforms ln
the public expenditures. He was by
nature a very "close" man, and he
went to such extremes in keeping
down the public expenses that he
brought great ridicnle upon himself,
and finally anything thnt was cheap
and poor was referred to as a la Silhouette.
A very crude picture was popular at
that time. It was made by tracing the
shadow or profile of a face projected
by tbe light of a candle on a sheet of
white paper and the outline defined
with a pencil. This was such a very
poor and cheap sort of picture that
It was at once called a silhouette in
further derision of the very saving
French minister, and the name has
"stuck." It is an Instance of tbe curious derivation of some words in common use, and this unkind slur on a
man who was really trying to Introduce needed reforms in the spending
of the public money has long been accepted as a good and proper word. Indeed, there is no other word used for
pictures of this kind, although there
were such pictures long before M. Etienne de Silhouette had his name attached to them in so embarrassing a
way.�����Morrl** VVnde In .CentJitry.

my suffering was almost Indescribable.
Sometimes for whole tluys 1 was unable

Sale of Some Articles of Jewelry Leads
to Solution of a Mystery.
A sensational murder mystery was
partially solved last week when tbe
body of a wealthy young man named
Hentchel, who disappeared from
home at Munich three years ngo, was
dug up on a piece of wiiste land out-
side the Bavarian capital.
Hentchel was the son ol one ol the
wealthiest business men in Munich.
He spent money lavishly, attended
the pleasure resorts regularly, belonged to the fashionable clubs, gambled
and kept race horses and motor cars.
He wus very friendly with another
young man named David Niederhofer,
son of the proprietor of a stationary
circus at Munich. Hentchel and Niederhofer were nearly always together,
Hentchel finding the money for their
Disappeared   In   1904.
Hentchel suddenly disappeared on
May 24, 1904, and not the least trace
of him could be found. Crime was
suspected, but the police abandoned
tlieir investigations without finding
the least clue.
A few days ago Niederhofer attempted to sell to a jeweler several articles
of value which formerly belonged to
'Hentchel, and, is it happened, the
jeweler remembered tbat tbey corresponded with particulars circulated by
the police describing articles of jewelry which Hentchel commonly wore.
There included diamond rincs and nn
extremely expensive bracelet. Tho
jeweler Immediately communicated
with the police, and detained young
Niederhofer until they arrived to arrest him.
Publication of the news of Nieder-
hrifer's urrest brought other suspicious
circumstances to light. A former em*
I'loye nt the Niederhofer circus informed the police that David Niederhofer ordered him about three years
ago to dip a deep' hole in waste land
adjoining the circus. He hnd no idea
for what object the hole was dug,
but offered to show the police where
the bole was made.
The  Body  Found.
Excavations on the waste land began early one morning, and continued
ul! day without success. V/hen ���hey
were resumed next morning, young
Niederhofer was brought to watch the
work handcuffed and fettered, between  two  policemen.
After some time Hentchel's
body was recovered, amid the intense
excitement of all present. Niederhofer
trembled violently, and was quite unable to overcome his agitation. He
was then taken back to prison.

After many attempts the sea has
oeen made to elisgorge part of a gold-
fin heard which had lain in its keeping since a terrible shipwreck more
than four years ago. This catastrophe
occurred between Sydney and Auckland, N.Z., when the Elingamite, a
passenger steamer, bearing between
100 and 200 passengers, and ��17,300
in specie, went down on some dangerous rocks called the Three Kings. The
majority of the passengers and crew
were saved, but the sufferings of some
who were cast adrift on a raft, and
subsequently picked up by a passing
steamer, read like the romance out
of a story-book, many going mad from
thirst and plunging into the sea.
Needless to say, the recovery of the
specie has been a subject of no little
thought, and several attempts were
made to get possession of it. The first
lot of treasure hunters could not
locate the Elingamite; the second
succeeded in locating the wreck; but,
owing to the accompanying diver's
unwillingness to descend, the expedition  was  abandoned.
A third expedition from Wellington,
N.Z., was more elaborately organized. But, owing to bad weather, the
difficulties of diving were very great,
and. finally, the party returned to
Wellington to await the summer and
calmer meteorological conditions.
While waiting news came that an
American syndicate was on the same
errand bent, and that they meant to
use scientific operations to assist
them. At once the Wellington party
set out for the wreck, and the diver's
report was a very disconcerting one.
The ship had hem shattered by explosives, no port.on of the wreck was
more than 3ft. above tlie rock, and the
bullion had vanished, it being the
diver's opinion that the cases had
been swept off the shelving rock into
the Bea.
Then a fifth expedition was made by
a syndicate from Aratapu, N.Z., with
the result that they report the recovery of 1,500 sovereigns from the

A Touching** Story.
The young lady who had sat for a

pleased.with the result "It looks like

doubtfully, "and yet I think there are
some tlr.ugs about it tbat ought to be
She suggested that the eyes should
bave rather more of an upward look,
that the right hand should be a little
less prominent, that the bair should
be made rnDre wavy and that certain
changes ought to bo made In the drapery.
"That would require a great deal of
retouching," said the artist, "and I
should have to charge you about $10
additional."    ���-.

Spanish  Police Sonrte.
There is no truth whatsoever in the
story according to which Alfonso
XIII. bas intrusted Inspector Arrow,
one of tiie heiuis of the detective department of Scotland Yard in' London, with the reorganization of the
Spanish detective polioe. 1\ is perfectly true tbat Inspector Arrow has re
Hied from the service of the Metropolitan police in England and has
gone to Spain. He has taken service,
however, not at Madrid but at Barcelona, where lie iB now employed al
n salary of $6,000 a year by an association of the leading merchants of
lhe place. Barcelona, besides being
the most important commercial centre
and busiest seaport of the peninsula,
in one word, the Liverpool or New
York of Spain, is likewise a nest oi
crime which tlie municipal and state
police seem powerless to hold in
check. The outrages of one kind nnd
another which are so constantly oc
curring there have begun to affect the-
prosperity of the city, and that is why
the leading merchants have formed an
organization for the purpose of not
only protecting themselves nnd tlieii
interests but likewise with the objeci
of driving the criminal population
from the city. The news will prftvc
somewhat of a disappointment to
those who had looked forward to n
reorganization of the Government po
lice at Madrid, which furnished such
a striking demonstration of its inefli
citney at the time of the trageeh
which marred the wedding of the
King and Queen of Spain last year.
Value of Victoria Cross.
Tlie intrinsic value of the Victoria
Cross, the most highly prized decoration in Army uiiel Navy, is about
1 l-2d. It was instituted by Royal
Warrant on January 9, 1856, ns a reward of gallantry for all ranks, and
the first presentation (of sixty-two
crosses) was made by the late Queen
Victoria in person on Friday, Tune
26, 1857. It is in the shape of a Maltese cross, and is made to this day
out of metal from old Russian cannon
captured at Sebastopol.

Prenerf Similes For "Drunk."
The French have some Interesting
similes of their own corresponding to
the English "drunk: as a lord" or
"drunk as a wheelbarrow," says a
London writer. Tbe most generally
recognized one in the case of "ivre,"
the less extreme and less vulgar word
for drunk," is "ivre comme une soupe"
���"soupe" meaning the piece of bread
eaten with soup as well as the soup Itself, and a bouillon soaked piece of
bread offering a natural simile for saturation. When the less delicate "soul"
is used Instead of "ivre," the Frenejh-
miin may speak of being as drunk as
an ass, a cow, a Swiss or a thrush.
The allusion ln the last case is to the
fondness of thrushes for grapes, which
are said at vintage time to make them
unsteady ln their flight.
Worse Inside Than Out.

of the floors. A young Japanese student, studying ln London, hail the misfortune to live in an apartment house

Why It Should Excite More Horror
Than Any Other Murder.
As to Its moral aspects, suicide Is
manifestly forbidden by the divine
law. One of the commandments of the
Decalogue declares, "Thou shult not
kill." To make the law ns comprehensive as possible it Is not suid,
"Thou sbnlt not kill thy neighbor,"
which qualifying phrase Is employed
In some of lhe other commandments���
as, for Instance, "Thou sbnlt not bear
false witness against tbey neighbor;"
"Thou sbnlt not covet thy neighbor's
house." The prohibition to kill is therefore absolute. It forbids the taking of
human life, whether by suicide or
There Is another commandment
which BOsys, "Thou Shalt love thy
neighbor as thyself." Now, the love
which we o\fe to our neighbor forbids
us to slay him, and therefore the love
which we owe to ourselves forbids us
to compass our own death. If tbe law
allowed us to kill ourselves, while forbidding ns to kill our neighbor, our
love for our neighbor would not be
equal, but superior, to our love for ourselves.
Nay, I hold that suicide Is a more revolting sin than the killing of another.
The closer the ties of relationship between the murderer nnd his victim the
more atrocious is the crime. In the
estimation of mankind, a parricide, or
matricide, or fratricide, or uxoricide, is
a more shocking criminal than an ordinary homicide. Aud as a man has
more Intimate relations to' himself
than to a parent or brother or wife, his
deliberate self destruction should excite more horror tban the murder of a
parent brother or wife.���Cardinal ("Ib-

Th* Verses Were Always Kept Sacreo
by Mrs. Beecher.
It was.related by Mrs. Henry Ward
Beecher that during their courtship Mr.
Beecher once "dropped Into poetry"
and wrote a few lines of verse teeming
with affection for his sweetheart. But
tho verses were always kept sacred by
Mrs. Beecher, aud nothing could win
them fA*om her. One day Mr. nnd Mrs.
Beecher were In the office of Robert
Bonner, the publisher.
"Why don't you write a poem, Beecher?" said Mr. Bonner.
"He did once," said Mrs. Beecher.

to me," addressing Mrs. Beecher.
"Why, It run"��� quickly said Mrs.
"Eunice!" simply said Mr. Beecher.
And, although Robert Bonner afterward offered to double the sum first
offered, he never got the poem from
Mrs. Beecher. It had beeu hiddeu

as one of the dearest treasures her
husband left her.

A lawyer ln the Indian Territory
named Medium was the attorney for a
farmer wbo had killed a neighbor.
McGann got tlie man out ou bail en the
plea of justifiable homicide or something of the kind, and the farmer immediately took his gun and killed the
chief witness against him.
Naturally this nettled the sheriff and
the judges, and they offered $300 reward for the murderous farmer. "Say,"
���aid McGann to the sheriff, "will yon
give me that reward if I get him?",
"Yes/ the sheriff replied, and McGann
rode out to the hiding place of his
ellent I
The farmer cams up, and McGann
shot him, took the body back to town
and demanded the reward. "How
; about thia, McGann?" asked another
: lawyer. "Do you think It Is In accordance with the ethics of the legal profession to take advantage of your client in that manner?" "Ethics be blow-
ed!" snorted McGann. "I killed him in
'another case."���Exchange.

! Sagacity of Blind Horses.
I The way In which blind horses can
go about without 'getting into more
dllHcultles than they ordinarily do is
'very remarkable. They rarely, If ever,
hit their beads against a fence or stone
wall. They will slide off when they
come near one. It appears from careful observation tbat It is neither shade
nor shelter which warns them of the
danger. On an absolutely sunless and
windless day their behavior is the
same. Tbelr olfactory nerves doubtless beepme very sensitive, for, when
driving them, they will poke their
heads downward in search of water
Dfty yards before they com* to a
stream crossing the roadway. It cannot be an abnormally developed sense
of hearing which leads them to do this,
for they will act alike though tho water be a stagnant pooL Men who have
been blind for any great length of time
develop somewhat similar instincts to
blind horses.
Put them on with no tools but a
hammer and tinner's shears,���can't
g-o wrong. They lock on all four
aides, are self-draining and water-
shedding on any roof with three or
more inches pitch to the foot. Make
buildings fire-proof, weatherproof
and proof against lightning. Cost
least in the long run. Made of 28-
gauge toughened sheet steel���only
one quality used and that the best-
bent cold and double-galvanized.
