A- motion upon which a great  many of the trustees had set their  hearts was defeated, after a good  deal- of discussion. It was to the  effect that the School Act be amended in such a -manner as to give  school boards com pletc control of  their own finances; to have the proportion of taxes payable for school  purposes set aside in a separate ac  count from that to which the muni  cipal council, and to be under the  control of the trustees.' Tins question of finance has been a disputed  one between school boards and the  municpal councils, and many of the-  trustees felt very strong upon the  issue.

'A   FLOWER    GARDEN    CONTEST  Friday,   Oct. 31,  1913  It   is   .somewhat   amusing  lq      outsiders   to see1 (he   Wrangle among tlio  people   of    Port   Coquitlall)    over   the  new   station   silo.   When   Port      Co-  qiiilluin,   or   New    Westm insler Junction,      as   it   used      to be  called,  Ava's    apparently    a    country     hamlet,  and   likely    to     remain    that   for    the  next   fifty   years,   the   present  station  and   -unction'  was   undoubtedly  sufficiently  adequate,   bill   now   thai  it  is  to   be   a   great   Terminal   City of the  greatest   of       transeonlinenlali   lines,  the   people   of that centre, must surely   expect    a more commodious      and  modern  station.   They  must   look "to  the   future.   It   is   just possible if the  e i t'  . present rale of progress is maintained  that the day'is not far distant  wL'en Port Coquitlam will have a  population as large as Mission City  and then some���������a city the present  residents fondly hope to rival some  of   its   present larger   sister cities    of  ��������� the     coast.      The     present     "dinky"  quarters would   not   be. appropriate.  If the city is to maintain the  name of port, in tho true, sense of  the Word, then it must either build  towards Burrard Jnlot or the Pit't  River, the latter being the natural  and, logical .direction- for expansion  Then if the city is io expand to  wards the east, it is only nafural the  station should be moved further  east.  The   C.    P. R.  is undoubtedly mak-  Jng   the   town   ,and   they ��������� should,-  be  surely given some   leeway in'the matter   of   the   choice   of   a   station site  Given   a   free   hand   and   backed    up  by the public opinion of   the city it is  also   likely   that the   company would  be   more   willing    to   spread' themselves,  in   regard   to    the size,  style and  architecture -of the'budding they      expect    to   put   up  in  the  course  of tlio  next   couple   of   years.   For is   it not  no doubt when the*' matter conns  up for discussion' Sir Richard W,ill no  doubt rub his hands and say,"Yes  gentlemen I. .am in perfect accord  with your ideas in the matter, now  that you have mentioned the subject, but it never occurred to me  before.  THE  MARKET.  Tho crowd of buyers present . at  ll.'e   New   Westminster   market on.  Friday morning last, was large but  unfortuately there was a lack of balance between the buyers and the  sellers  When the market, was...at its best  scarcely more than' half of IK: stalls  were Idled, and the- vendors in the  stalls   had   such   short   supplies   that  were   fairly   good   looking potatoes  r,,,       ,,    ,   ... |     There   were   fairly    large     consign-  fac hat    Ins   great      company's    inullU    of   cmlcd   _���������..__    __d   .^  actions   are  influenced more  or      less  before   eleven half;  of   them were sold  out.  An   observer   of   the   market-    notices   one   fact: The housewives of New  Westminster   want   (o   trade   on    the  market,   feeling   that  there  they -can  get  .fresh    products,   and they are apparently    willing   lo   pay  good prices  for   high   grade   goods.   Tne      poorer  products���������common       truck���������frequently  goes   begging  This   was    particularly-  noticeable   in    tho   potato     dem and.  There   have   been,   among  the     good  "lots,    a   large     quantity    of   inferior  potatoes   offered,     and   as     a    result  buyers  arc   getting critical.  One', saw  them   opening   sacks   and   cutting the  tubers   to   see   if   they    were     sound  Tho   prices    asked by consignees  ranged ��������� from thirteen   to   sixteen     dollars.  The     sixteen     dollar    potatoes    were  from    Chilliwack,    and     after   an   examination   a   marketer,     being   satis  tied   that   he   had   found  really      fine  potatoes,     promptly   bought     a ��������� Ion.  The   steamer   Transfer brought  sever- J'age,   would     be   the   compelling      of  al   tons   from   West ham   Island   that j speculators   to   keep   the   weeds   and  grass     on     their   property      cut  ',  Several -.times   during  the past few  months      the   fact     has been brought  to   our   attention   by prominent  citizens   on  'thisparL   of   Iho island, says  Sidney Review,   they would like, to see  ste. . a   flower   growing   contest started iir   Sidney  and   the   smaller towiei  and   villages      udj.i-.it   thereto,   and  we. see   no     reason      why   those living ' on     farms    or    small    acreugc  should   be    debarred.   We  believe this  movement   if   properly  organized  and  carried   out would   do   much to beautify   this   inxrl   of   the   peninsula  and  make   it   more .attractive   to      summer   visitors,    especially   in   the thick  1.1 settled parts   and   Would      be      an  cenlive  to   householders   to  do  something towards   making- the  places' in  which   they   live a ' little more attrac  Live.

In a climate such as wo have  hero it is a very easy matter to  grow the most beautiful, flowers im  aginable- as is clearly demonstrated  by a look into the gardens of *a  few of our most industrious citizens during, the spring and summer  months A Well cultivated"- lot, that  'is- sown either to flowers, vegetables, or even a smooth velvety  lawn,, adds much to the value" of  a place when-offered for-sale.

He, fumbled in bis pocket and after  a - minute  brought  up a- sinall   black,  pocketbook and held it out io-me.' It  was   the small"* coin   purse; out  of  a  leather handbag.  "She dropped this In the cab. sir," be  said. "1 took it borne to Ihe missus���������  not knowing what else to do, with jr.  It contained only that bit of paper."  -I opeued the purse, ana'took out a  small white card without engraving  On it was written in a pencil the figures, "0 1122."  When the cabman had gone I sat  down and tried to think things out. Of  the two stories the taxicab driver'a  was tbe more probable, as far as Miss  Jane was concerned. Knowing hei  childlike nature, her timidity. . Iicr  shrinking and shamefaced fear of the  dark, it was almost incredible that sho  would walk the three miles toWyntoti  voluntarily aud from there lo������e herself  Id the (it,*.   Besides, such an explain  Hon woulfl not fit the blood stains or  the fao������ that she bad gone, as far as.  We could find out, in her night clothes.  Still, she had left the village that  night, either by cab or on foot. It the  'driver'had been correct In his time,  however,'the taxicab was almost elim-  * bated. He said tbe woman got into the  cab at 1:30. It'was between 1:30 and  1:45 when Margery beard the footsteps  to the attic.-. '  I~tbink for the flrst time It came to  me, that day, that there was at least a.  possibility that Miss Jane had not been  attacked, robbed and injured: that she  had left home voluntarily, under stress  of great excitement. But If she had.  why?  1 was uot proud of the part I played.  So far I had blundered, it seemed to  me, at every point where n blunder  was possible, i had been a hulf hour  too late to save Allan Fleming. 1 had  been up and awake, and Miss Jane had  got out ,of the house, under, my very  nose. Last and by no means least. I  bad waited thirty-five years to find  the right woman, and when 1 found  her some one else had won her. I was  in the depths that day when Burton  came in.  He walked into, the office Jauntily  and put something on the desk.in front  of me.    It was a Russia leather bag.  "The leather bag!" he pointed proudly.   "It was found in Boston."  It was, not lurked, and I got it open  in a minute. As 1 bad expected, it  was euiuLv.  "Then���������perhaps Wardrop was lolling  the   truth,"   I   exclaimed.    "By   .love,..  Burton, he' was robbed by the woman"  In theeab, and he can't tell about her  on   account   of   Miss   Fleming.    She  made a haul, for certain."  I told him then of the two women  who had left Bellwood on the uigiit of  Miss Jane's disappearance and showed  him the purse "and its lnclosure.' The-  (J puzzled him as it had me. "It might  be anything." he said as he gave It  back, "from a book, chapter and verse  In the Bible to n prescription for rheumatism at a drug store. As to,the lady  in the cab. 1 think perhaps you are  right," he said, examining the iutorlur  of the bag,, where Wardrop's tinme in  Ink told its story.  "How on earth did you get the bag?"  I asked.  "It was a coincidence.   There have  been a shrewd lot of baggage thieves  iu two or three eastern cities lately,  mostly  Boston.    The, method, the po  Moo say, was something like this���������one  of them, the chief of the gang, would  get a   wagon, 'dross*   like, an  expressman, and go round the depots look In;:  at baggage.    He would make a mental  note  of   the  numbers,, go  away   and  forge a eherk to niatcb.'.nnd secure the  pieces he bad taken a fancy ro.   Then  he merely drove around to headquarters, and   the trunk   was rifled     The  police  got  on.   raided   the  place  and  found, among others, our Russia lentil  er bag     It  was shipped back, empty,  to the address inside, Bellwood "  "At Bellwood?   Then bow"���������  "It came .while i was lunching with J  Miss Lelitia." he said easily., /'We're  very chummy -thick as thieves.   What  *I  want to know is"���������disregarding  my  astonishment���������"where Is the hundred  thousand V  "Find the woman.'*  ."Did you ever bear of Anderson, the  nerve  specialist"/'   he  asked, .without  apparent relevancy,  "I have been thinking of hlin." I  answered "If we could gel Wardrop.  there on some plausible excuse ' It  would take Anderson about ten minutes, with bis instruments aud export  mental psychology. to know everything  Wardrop ever forgot."  "I'll go .on one" condition." Burton  said, preparing to leave. "I'll promise  to get Wardrop aud have, him on the  spot at 2 o'clock tomorrow.".  About 4 o'clock a woman came who  refused to be turned away.    She" was  ���������of. medium height, quietly dressed anil  fairly handsome. - My first impression  was favorable.   She moved with a certain dignity, and  she  was uot laced  crimped or made up.    I am more so  phisM'eated  uuw.-  The lady who tells  me,  things  says   that   the  respectable  women "nowadays  out rouge, outoriinp  and outlaee the unrespectahle    '  However, the illusion was gone tbe-  moment she began to speak. Hei  .voice was heavy, throaty, expression  iess. She threw it like, a weapon. I  am perfectly honest In saying that for  .i .>>,.-..i���������Mt flu.
