"Mayor Keller's decision as to the future of the Atlin  district is that of every man of intelligence who visits that country.  Atliu will be one ot the names to  conjure with by those of the future  who write or talk of the production  of gold."  Dr. Keller, who spent several  weeks here, has the following good  words to say about Atliu and his  visit:  "Atlin's good times are for the  future���immediate future, I might  say. They are good there now and  ha/e been so for a long time;���as a  hydraulic camp, there is nothing in  the North to compare with the  Atlin district  One thing that will count' for  much iu the development of Atliu  district is the character of the people. I never saw a better crowd  oi fellows in my life. That applies  to those living at Atlin, at Discovery and on the creeks.  Will Hold Meeting at ^Nugget Hall, "Discovery.

The' second 'cut 'was ?attended .with  much 'greater difficulty than the  other, l and necessitated a bedrock  cut of over 400 feet, to a depth of  8 feet. At the* end of this cut, 30  feet deep, a shaft was sunk 17^  feet, wh e n a continuation of the  same results, as obtained in 'the  one pieviously mentioned, were  found.

I cried a warning to Paul and heard  la snarl, as of a wild beast, and an answering snarl.

' ^      V  Rev. Alfred W. EL Hodder, Six- Q  teen-th Baptist Church,  G '      New York.  -Emmanuel���God with us.���Matthew,  1.,,  a. ���  The secret of joyi and peace lies i��  file fact that we all (believe in a pre  sent and not an absent God.    .  It is this which' brings comfort U  our hearts, which giii's us security in  the promise of eternal redemption and  places before lis the loving side of -"our  Vather's" character.  By virtue of this declaration we can  more fully realize God with and within the souls of men. Not with us  merely in loving mercy or care, or  providence, or piotection, but with us  as one of us. The delight in thinking of what has been done for us in  the ages past, for "even from everlasting to everlasting thou hast been  our dwelling place in all generations,"  is enhanced by the thought of what  God is now doing���that He still lives  ami rules and dwells among jnen,  bringing all things to pass for the uplifting of his  children  to  Himself.  Moreover, we are led to rejoice1 in  the larger revelation of God, for each  footprint grows more distinct as one  follows another., As there have been  always in existence rthe electrical powers of nature, but not revealed fully  until man reached intellectual strength  sufficient to lay hold upon* their energy  and utilize them for his best interests.  so God 'has revealed 'Himself as men  grew into larger life and light. More  and more God has made Himself  known through prophets of old,  through the life aid words and death  of Christ, through saints and martyrs  to the cause of righteousness and truth  We lejoice in the fact of "Emmanuel���  God with us," written on the page  of history and in' th~* hearts of men.  Qur God lives and dwells among us  now.  The thought of "Emmanuel" ought  to make us biave ��� The abiding presence of God should give us courage,  faith and hope, for "if God be for us,"  and with us, "Who can be against us?'  No temptation need be too s'trong to  be conquered, no difficulty need be too  hard to be surmounted, no soi row need  cause us to bury our hearts and lives  in the graves of,our'loved ones, for it  will eventually be with us as with them  "From grief and groan, with a golden  \ crown, close by the tin one of God"  God in us will graduate our strength  for every experience Of life ��� through  which we shall pass, and omnrp_otpnt  power will be under every care and  burden. Thus we may bravely go into, ^life's .work as warriors to battle.  Orlr j5a'tKer7 having taken our cause to  His heart, ought to bring a similar  action from us in His behalf. For  there is a gieat battle on between  righteousness and unrighteousness.  The trumpet which musters the warriors soundeth loud and long, and the  fight will be stern and desperate between truth and sin. We must take  our post, every one, on one side or  the other, for "If the Lord be God,  follow Him ; but if Baal, then follow  him." No touch or though* of compromise; no division of the living child,  as in the days of Solomon, by a wicked woman ; no acceptance of a particle  of error, for "if God be for us, who can  ���be' against us ?" Thus be brave in  the word, "Emmanuel���God with us."  The thought of "Emmanuel" ought  to is ike us good and true to each  other. The human family is bound  together in Him who gives us out  daily bread, not only for the, body, but  for the soul also, and bids us be breakers of bread with our fellowman, help  ing those who have need to share out  blessings. There is a noble family  in Italy whose name of Fiangipanni  means breakers of bread���that is, foi  the poor. So ought we by the God  dwelling nature, if not by name, break  bread 'unto those who are poor in  spirit if not poor in body. For thus  alone can we give something to Him  "who freely giveth us all things."  In this world of sorrow there are  some who know not the sweet peace ot  the indwelling presence of God. Then  eyes have become blind by the glare  of temporal things ; their lives-tare fill  ed with the husks of this world. Here  in this wide world of sin-sick souls  the God in us should go out to them  Our Father would dwell in their hearts  and lives as in -*'irs. He would have  them be "sons -<f God." But do thej  see the revelation of God in us ? Are  our bodies, o ���' commercial transactions, our social circle such that men  see the dwelling place of the Most  High and covet the blessing we hold i  God shows Himself in a multitude  of wavs and yet is always the self  same Father. So will He manifest  Himself in the varied ways of men,  through a wide range of activities  from the cup of cold water gi\en "in  His name" up to the accomplishment  of larger things for men. God re  vealei in us "to will and do of His  good pleasure" is to bring men back  to their largest portion. This revela  tion is in earthen vessels "through  whom God aforetime spoke" and  speaks to-day. If the night is dart  our God's abiding light will enable us  to scatter it. If the road be rough  and dreary our God., who dwelleth in  us, will assist us to make it smooth  and plain. If sin has pressed out  brother hard our God will provide s  way of escape and eternal redemption.  So we need never say, Where is 0111  For the Farmer.  j Old, musty hay should be used for  bedding only. Duiing the summer  season there is nothing better for  horses than1 to cut a few armfuls of  grass in the morning and allow it to  wilt during the day. If fed at night it  will be found much moie palatable than'  the hay from last year's crop. Many  horses' are supposed to lose appetite  for 'hay when the dilficulty is only due  to their rejection of old matcnal.  A good many fanners are looking  into the Angora question with considerable interest. I he goat docs not interfere* with the pasturage of cattle  and sheep, as he is a browser and not  a grazer. A few goats mingled with  the 'sheep flock and cattle herd < will  keep the fence lines clean 'of brush and  brambles and make the sciub patches  disappear ; they get their living from  the giowths which the other animals  refuse.  guard to the wholesaler or   expo   For instance, it has been found in previous years _]by, apple expoiteis that  barrels bearing their biand and marked as put up by a ceitam boss packer, say No. 60, were in gieat demand,  while good's similaily branded except  that they were marked as put up by  another packer, say No 48, were not  wanted. This difference m the quality of the fruit may have been due to  inferior packing, onto the fact that the  second packer was working in an inferior district, but, in, any case the advantage to the exporter of having a  check on the work of his packets is  quite apparent  Sartorial Shortcomings of Painters.  "A cheap preparation which will  keep flies off horses in pasture is'made  by mixing crude caibolic acid with fish  oil, in the proportion of two table-  spoonfuls of caibolic acid to one quart  of oil," says a horseman. "This  should be applied to those paits which  the animal cannot icacli with its head  or tail. The preparation, can be applied to the young foals as well as the  brood mares. Crude carbolic acid  should be used, as it is stronger than  the solution,usually sold by diuggistb."  Always give horses water before  feeding, whether moining, noon, or  night. Do this, because a 'horse will  digest his food better, be stiongei, and  will last the longer for it. Colic or  acute indigestion, a common' and often fatal trouble with'horses, is avoided by watering befoie feeding. But  three times a day is not oftcnf enough  to water horses when at woili and in  hot weather. Five or six times a day  is not too often under such condition**  and the horse 'is' bcttci, fresher, and  can do more without-'injury to itscit if  wateied often.  When O. N. Mind, an up-to-date tailor,  went   to   the,  London   Boyal   Academy  the other day he experienced a severe  shock.'   In narrating his experiences hi'  the "Tailor and Cutter," he says that as  one-half of the pictures shown are portraits,  which   profess   to  reproduce   the  characteristic features, face and dress of  Uie original, and as the tailois have had  lo design and produce that dress before  It was worn by the artist's customers, it  is but natural for the tailor to take an  Interest in such portraits.    In criticizing  the  portrait  of   Lord   Mount 'Stephen,  pointed by Sir George Kcid, the eai castle tailor notes'a tolal absence of bin-  tons on tlie coat, and declares that tho  silk on the fronts is al least an inch too  narrow.    He 'witheringly  condemns  the'  painting as "contortions in black with n  smudge of gray."   Then Solomon J. Solomon comes'in  for, criticism, ,"Look at  number sevenly-bhrec, a portrait of II. T.  Levy/' he'says; "the silk on the lapela  is indicated as forming a continuation of,  the collar, a style that no 0110 but an old  woman who  is sometimes employed  to  mend clothes would adopt.

BENEDICT.  ���  A  Thrilling 'Story of Love and Adventure*  i* We have seen that Anthony Saybrook'  'had anticipated the outbreak of war.  Bo certain was he of it, that his plans  , 'a.nd schemes for months past had been  ttlmost entirely governed by the anticl-  Satlon of its speedy occurrence. Po-  tlcally, he belonged to the party that  opposed such an extreme course as war,  Mid sneered at its advocates as "French  sympathizers.^' Personally, however,  Mr. Saybrook was not a man to let his  political prejudices interfere with his  Interests in any,way. With the young  ,heir of Rolff House away in Europe,  jtnd himself holding mortgages on por-  ' tlons of the estate, and with fraudulent  Heeds 'in his hands covering the most  raluable parts of the property, a war  ji'ould'furnish an opportunity to carry  ��ut his schemes at his leisure and witn  the utmost chance 'of safety. 'Thore-  "ore, though in his public utterances,'  find In his letters to Claude, tho lawyer '  had deprecated 'war and affected to-j  loubt Us probability, at heart he was  >ager 'to have it occur, and strongly,.  convinced that Its outbreak was inevitable. , - 11  So Joy was brought to the household *  ��f the Saybrooks, when, with the early  ,      Jay's of summer, the tardy mail biought  the news of the,actual declaration of  -tzar against England. <   ,  "You see, Ralph," remarked the elder  Saybiook, after they had carefully read  ivery word refeiring to the all-lmpor-  ta-nt topic contained In the _ modest  news letter which brought * the good '  Sews, "that my throw has been a successful one, even if It was risky, and we  Isave won our game.   Ah, my dear boy,  5 never did a finer piece'of wonk'in my,,  fe. This news clears every obstacle  from our path, and the extent to which  l?e shall take advantage of our opportunity rests entirely within our own  Hiscretion. The war the administratron  tk *as plunged into will not be a short  |j(      "        itne, I opine.   There is no doubt that rt  ���will be  continued  till the  country  is  jretty   well   exhausted   and   the   war  jpirlt of the people1 has evaporated, and  that means three or four years, in my, ���  Jpinion,    at the least.     Look   at our  bhance.   Claude is in Europe, arid there  Is no possible1 chance of his either get-  ling back to this country or communl-  )atlng with It in any way while the war"1  lasts.    The mortgages  are  so   drawn ,  (hat they can be closed up at the end'  if a year; and I have the deeds, you  know, covering the homestead and ad-  Joining property, "all regularly drawn  Jnd  signed,   and   nobody   to   question  ttreir validity while he is absent.   "What  ��� to prevent our taking advantage of  mr good fortune, and coming into pos- -  tession of the Rolff property?    Nothing, that I see, unless It is our own  Bmidity.   And why should we be timid?  It is not likely that Fortune will ever  >ffer us another such a chance.    Tho  fisk Is comparatively small.    I am in ,  favor of taking the fullest" advantage  ���if our posltlori,L(and of acting prompt-  i   ty." ^ j  "But what If he should come back?"  isked Ralph.        - i  "Well," replied the parent,  "I don't  Slink he la very likely to come back at  111.   Still, the question is a farr one, and  (p-ill bear consideration.    Suppose  tho  Var ends  In a year or two,  and  he  tomes back to find us in possession of  Rolff House.    He  can  bring  suit,1 of  lourse, but what can he prove?   The  bortgages will have matured, and wo  rhall be  the purchasers.    As  for  tho  feeds, there is no possible ground to  f      (hallenge  their  regularity, i   His   only  (ourse would be a suit to dispossess on  Ihe  ground  of  fraud;  but  with  what  lhance of success?   Our defence would  Ite that the deeds were given as collate  iral security for money furnished, and  ie has absolutely no testimony to offer  igainst us but his own.   Don't you see  kow beautifully all my plans have been  wranged?  I can see no possible chance  for failure.    The probabilities  all ara  Ihat Claude will soon be left penniless  )m "Europe, and, by the time he is afford-  Id a chance to return to this country,  t thousand things may have happened  lo take him out of our way.   The long-  ��r he Is away, the better   for us,    of  lourse; but, In any event, as soon as  ���fre are in full possession of the prop-  ��rty I am ready to take the chance of  ��ur keeping it."  "I quite see the weight of your arguments," replied Ralph, "and, of couise,  I'm in favor of a bold course. When  -will you record the deeds?"  "Oh, there Is no immediate hurry,"  ���van the reply. "It will be well to wait  Hie turn of events for a few weeks.  .My only object In hastening at all Is to  advance you in old Bruyn's favor.   As  jooon as you are the recognized heir of  'Rolff House, you need worry no more  aver your interests in that direction."  L "I don't worry." replied Ralph.  f  "Well, I am glad of it," was the reply.    "Nothing is so sure to win the  favor of Fortune as a cool and brave  front  You have but to be cautious and  .���persistent, my boy, to win."  I "I intend to be," asserted Ralph.       *  p "No doubt, no doubt," responded the  "M*er; "and the prize is worthy of the  ���blithest effort.   You must win, Ralph."  I   "I Intend   to win," again   asserted  .Ralph.       _ ^   n  CHAPTER XI3C  "Wearily passed   the days   fo Rosa  ilBruyn.    Drearily the sun rose in the  tSnornlng and as drearily set behind the  vestem  mountains at'We.     She  pei-  torrnod hoi accustomed duties with her  usual alacrity, and pei'iaps with more  than her usual consclent'ous care: but  the  light  of  happy content  had  gone  from her sweet face arid the buoyancy  from  her step.    For  daV3 (and  weeks  she had wrestled with the doubts and  'burmises that had'thionged continually,  upon her, and this mental anxiety and  conflict could not but ll>a\o its impios-  Blon.    But, through it nil, she had not  given up her faith In Claude.   She was  resolved ,that  she  would  not  question  his fidelity till she was, afforded be tier  evidence   than     anything   that    co'Md  come to her through tho int trumpntnllty  of Anthony'Saybrook    She was suofiK-  ly Impelled to the bellcJ. that the defa-  ���0.U00Q   pf   Claude  and   tlie' pei'.Isteiit  pressing of Ralph Saybiook's sult'wcre  parts of the same plot, unci a thousand  explanations thronged to her mind to  excuse Claude's strange letter, which,  as she recalled  Its win els,   seemed   to  her too ambiguous r and  too  much  Hko  ^tho high-flown expressions of one writing in a merry, mischievous mood,, to  be   an  acutal' confession, of   falseness  and guilt.   She flattered her hopes with  the thought that the letter'had been,  drawn out by some subterfuge of tho  wily lawyer, and was evidence only of  Claude's light and gay spirit, which she  well understood to be p'one to a certain  recklessness of expression, easily mis-'  'understood.  -Yet doubts would at times  assail her, and the ceitainty that there  was to be a long and peihaps'total separation, .and' that all chance of explanation was removed from her,  caused  her troubles to weigh most heavily upon her mind.  Mrs.  Bruyn's watchful  ey?  had  detected her daughter's quiet, unconles=ed  grief,  and 'she  was  the  obiect  ol  her  anxious solicitude.    Yet even  she was  unaware of the real nature and depth  of her sorrow.    The good lady had  rn  an .unwilling and half-heai ted way admitted what seemed to  her  the  overwhelming evidence of Claude's falsity.  The  absolute  convictions  of   her   nus-  band had  gradually broken down  her  "last defence of the young man, and she  was ,faln to admit the guilt she could  not explain.   This belief created a \s-i-v-  .rler'as It were between her  and  her  daughter,  and prevented  her  offering  the consolation which would have been  admissable* had there boen a more 'direct sympathy In  then   views  of    the  matter. , By 'her very    position,   Mrs.  Bruyn was forced to st^nd midway between her husband'and daughter; and  she deemed it best, urder the clicum-  stances, to let Rosa's grief quietly wear  Itself out.   She was little aware, indeed,  of the real depth of the wound'that had  been inflicted, so calm and patient was  the brave girl's demeanor, but she could  note  the  altered  appeal ance  and  demeanor, and her anxiety and sympathy;  were deeply excited. , '  Ralph  Saybrook continued his calls  at farmer Bruyn's, and his attentions  to Rosa, . So delicate and circumspect  was his conduct, however, that he had  really made a quite favorable impression upon Mrs. Bruyn, and even Rosa  was forced  to  treat him  with   a consideration that she would gladly perhaps have accepted the opportunity to  withhold/-   But  the fact   was,   that  so  well had he Ingratiated himself in the  old farmer's good'opinion, and so caic-  ful was he net to allow Rosa any opportunity to take or show- offense without doing inJustice*to her natural goodness of heart,    that   he had    greatly  strengthened  his  position  as  a  suitor  for her hand without her being really  aware of it.   At times the thought of  the wrong that had been done to Claude  smote her heart, yet she had no ground  save her own suspicions to accuse the  Saybrooks of a plot to injure her lover,  and her nature was too guileless and  too generous to take the risk of doing  Injustice upon mere conjecture.  Thus ever-recuurrlng grief and doubt  lay at the heart of the unhappy girl;  and the fact that there seemed no orrs  In whom she could confide, and that  everybody appeared drawn into the plot  to thwart her wishes, caused hei sorrows to weigh more heavily"upon her  heart than they otherwise would It  seemed to her continually that if thero  were only some one to whom she could  talk about her sorrows, if she only  knew some friend of Claude's of whom  she could simply inqurre his welfare,  even though It were to ask In vain, it  would be some relief to the intense  strain of anxiety and grief.  So It was with a sudden emotion of  Joy that, one day, as she was watering  her cherished flower-bed in  the  front  yard, she saw the familiar form of old  Carl CrufltJ descending the road that led  toward tf�� house from the village.   It  seemed strange thatsl.ehadnotthought  of him.   She knew that Claude had always highly esteemed the faithful,old  man, and that he wa-3 devoted to the  Rolff family, and she felt an irresistible  desire to talk to him     There was no  reason for hesitation, for her father waa  away from home, and she was familiarly acquainted with the kindly but eccentric old man, who had always petted  her when ho met her since she was a  little girl, and was" at all t'*nes as approachable by the young and Innocent  as well could be.   So Rosa unhesitatingly set down her watering pot, and hast- '  ened to the gate to intercept him  rough, bearded face us he drew neai.  "Good day, Mr. Cium," said Rosa,  .with courtesy.  "Ah, good day, my rosebud," replied!  old Carl as he took her hand and pressed it In his horny paw. "Let me look  at you," ,he added, as he adjusted his  spectacles.

"I have good reason for trouble," ie-  plied  Rosa,   with  a  simple  frankness.  that Indicated her entiie absorption in  the object of her quest.    "I thought I  would speak to you, Mr Cram, to learn  .whether you  had heard  from  Claude  Bince he went away."   <  J The old man stroked his head a moment as If in troubled thought.

But you surely have  heard from the young master, and I  would fain enquire news of him of you."

"This Is strange���strange. But  ���why do I say'stwuige, when the graceless villain, Anthony Saybrook, has had  the influencing of master Claude's  ���mind?

I will go  in the house now and write my letter;  and you, Mr. Crum, must write all you  know, and to-morrow I can bring my  letter to you."  "No, no," replied the old man, " 'tis  too long a walk for you to come down  to the ferry; and I must needs berupi  to the village during the morning; and)  it you will walk down toward Rolff  ���House at nine o'clock you will find me  there. It 1b some' sort of pleasure -for  me to linger round the old house,  though I may not enter it." 1 ,  In truth, old Carl did not aHow a day,  to pass in which "e*7ery means of entrance to Rolff House was not carefully  scrutinized by him. It caused him'  great anxiety to see the house lonely  and unguarded, and he took every  means In his power to guard it as vigilantly as he could.  Rosa wrote a long letter to Claude  detailing her troubles and anxiety, the  rumors that prevailed in regard to  'Anthony Saybrook's treachery, and her  eusplclons In regard to the plot that  had been put In motion to separate  them, and next day, at the hour appointed, she wandered down toward  Rolff House, where, at the gate, she  found old Carl, who took her letter,  and, telling her that he must hasten  back, as his friend was to leare at  once for the city, on a sloop that would  sail that very day, turned and left her  .With a cheery word to be of good heart  'And then, kneeling down on the soft  greensward, In the shadow of the tall  stone gateway, the fair girl prayed  fervently that her letter might reach  Its destination, and the clouds of sorrow,  that surrounded her be dispersed.  CHAPTER XX  It waa not without some trepidation  that Anthony Saybrook finally resolved  on the bold step of recording the deeds  Whloh would make him pratlcal master  of Rolff House and a considerable por��  tion of the estate connected therewith.  His wary nature did not allow him to  proceed In his vlllany without manjf  thoughts and misgivings.   He fully be��  A pleasant smile lit up the old man's   ,,0ved that tljc chances were all In favof  certain of success In the end if Claude  did not return, which he was not likely  to do while" thei war lasted. But tho  elder Saybrook was not so philosophical over the matter. He felt the gravity  of the step he had taken in using the  fraudulent deeds, and wished to fortify  his position in every possible way  against all contingencies of the future.  He saw that It would be a good stroke  of fortune for Ralph tQ secure the only,  daughter of the rich old farmer, and ho"  was anxious to expedite matters so as  *Fo prevent any possible lisk of failure  from any unwlshed-lor developments,  as well as to make sure of strengthening his position against any future legal troubles by the alliance with his  rich neighbor.  So Anthony Saybrook took every occasion to Interest the old farmer in  Ralph's behalf, aittully seeking to excite his cupidity by frequent references  to   the   old   woods   and   the   adjoinmg  1 meadow lands which he knew in the  eyes of the old man weie one of the  most tempting of prizes.  These efforts had their effect on farmer Bruyn.   He became more and more  Interested in the project of the match  , between Ralph and his daughter, and  'his Interest was not tho less because  lie could see that Rosa was secretly sorrowing over her separation from Cl-rudo  This latter fact especially worried tho  old gentleman.   To be sure, their spertr-  ed no probability of C'audc ever returning to make trouble, out It angered htm  to think that his daughter's affections  should be wasted at all on such a priceless scamp.    So he took trequunt occasion to commend and praise Ralph Saybiook  in   her hearing,   and  to  let" bur  know by what he no doubt consUWi-u*  delicate hints that It would be phasilng  to him to see her encouiage tho young  man's suit.  Rosa received all these indications of  her father's wishes In silence. Tlrl.-i encouraged him to believe that she >vou!d  speedily yield.  Still, the days passed on, and Xlosa  stow more quiet and sud, and Ralph's  suit failed to make progrers. The old  farmer began to be troubled  "What alls you, chlid?" he said to  her one day, as he entered the houeo  and found her sitting sad and with  tears stealing down her face by a window���so absorbed in her mood as not  to have noticed hit! entrance. "Dunder  and dounds, you're no longer my merry  little girl. Crying for that scamp of  a Claude Rolff, eh! For shame! He's  no fiellow for a girl to cry her eyes out  about���the rascal.

Saturday, -Oct.  17TH, 1903.  The mining season, just dosed,  in Atlin has been marked by many  changes, more particularly as regards methods of mining. The  passing of placer claims from individuals miners to companies has  likewise been a feature of the past  season. A very large amount of  outside capital has lound its way  into the district while many of the'  pioneer miners are taking themselves off to other fields. We regret to see many of these good men,  who have done*"so"'much to bring  the camp to its present state or importance, leave us now, but in  ' leaving Atliu they will do for other  , districts what they have done for  this.  A's the years go on and the shallow diggings become exhausted, it  becomes apparent that, with a few  exceptions, the deep ground of the  district can most profitably bo worked by hydraulic" or mechanical  methods, both'of \yhich beyond the  reach of the average miner, -and  as a matter of course, the day of  company operations is even now at  hand. In the progress of events  we must bury sentiment and welcome the new order of things, as  being the best for the development  of the district.  Though much of the older part  of the camp has passed oris passing  into the hands of capitalists, there  is yet much ground available and  open for the prospector and miner  in the contiguous country to the  east and south. This territory has  hitherto received but an occasional passing from hunters  or from men en loute to Tesliu'or  the Liard country. Developments  during the past season have shown  that the Dixie valley is worthy the  . close scrutiny of "miners, and it is a  well known geological fact that the  gold area is by no means confined  to the Pine and McKee watersheds.  As .we have already said, the land  is open, why, then, should our  pionears leave Atlin for other districts ?   After many years the Atlin district has at last succeeded in established its reputation as a hunters'  paradise. This season there have  been two or three hunting parties  from the Old Country, who have  found that the district offers a field  for sportsmeu which has few equals  and no rivals in the Dominion.  'With its accessibility and beautiful  climate) summer or winter, it possesses advantages enjoyed by very  few districts in Canada.  Apart from mining, the Atlin  country, given the opportunity,  should in a few years be as well  known as a land of sport as it is today as a land of gold. A word here  and a word there will accomplish  much.  BIG GAME.  Atlin's   Fame   as a Hunting  Ground Appreciated.  Notable Old Country Sportsmen  Are Enthusiastic over the  District's Possibilities.  Although Atlin has had but little  advertising as a rountry for big  game hunters, the fact has, however, become known, and from now  on its capabilities in that connection  will not fail to receive greater publicity.    ,  " Beyond the noise of the hum of  city life," said a valued correspondent in a article on "The Hunt,  in the land where the miner's  blast is unheard, the forest teams  with game, consisting of moose,  caribou, sheep, goat, bear, -'lynx,  martin, fox (red, cross, silyer-gray  and black) wolverine, fisher, etq.  Our lakes, which are innumerable,  are plentiful in fish and, wild-fowl  in their season; the woods andhills  contribute vast abundance of grouse  and ptarmigan, and the, swamps,  snipe, and plover; and all of this so  easy of access. What more'can a  sportsmau desire?"  This summer we have had at  least two prominent hunting parlies  from the Old Country, aucKiiom  both we hear strong expressions of  praise at the immense and varied  field which-this district, ojSEers the  sportsman. ,  -     ' ���  ..Mr: A. M." Nay lor, ot London,  Eng., recently spent some days at  the south end of Atliu lake aud the  glacier, and reports having seen  large flocks of sheep and goats, on  one occasion he counted no less  than 32 sheep in one flock. Anywhere on the slopes above the lake  goats could be seen feeding. Mr.  Nay lor secured a very fine "Ovis  Faniui" sheep, a black bear, aud  one goat. "He says that had he so  desired, he could have filled a  steamer with game. He is so impressed with "the country that he  will not fail to chain its praises and  he has signified his intention of returning next season. Mr. Naylor  has on several occasions been, a  companion with the world-ieuouued  hunter Dr. Selous.  Mr. Walter Aitken of Atliu acted  as guide to Mr. Naylor.  Sir Bryane Leighton and Lady  Leighton, of England, accompanied  by Messrs. Aiken and Rouayne, of  Atlin, who acted as guide's, a few,  weeks ago took a hunting trip to  the north end of Atlin lake. They  chartered the Scotia to transport  their outfit, consisting of horses,  supplies and camp equipment.  The first camp was made at Big  Fish Lake, 7 miles east of Atlin  lake. At this point the numeruus  moose tracks indicated the existence  of many of these animals in the  vicinity," but it was decided lo  push further on into the mountains.  Owing to one of the horses, loaded  with provisions, falling into the  lake, one of the party had to return  to Atlin to replenish the larder.  The trip was brought to a hasty  conclusion by the camp taking fire,  Atlin,  Nugget and Grape Rings  And All Kinds of Jewellery Manufactured on the Premises.

Then golf'can'be played in  any  trme of  tho year,  with  .ihnost as mucin  enjoyment in winter as in summer,'and  though the golfer is not independent   o*  weathor, he is veiy  lndif.ereut  to it.    *��  have  frequently seen  golfeis playing  lr  rain���1 have played myself in a fog���anrf,  the best pioof  that snow- has no tcnorr  for the golfer is the fact that there i? :���,  special   ball  for playing in  snow���a  ba'l  painted  ied instead of white     These are  but the minor causes of the  fascln itron  of golf;  tho real charm is rn the character of the game  itself.  ,Compare rt with  any  other   outdoor  game,   and  the   11' st  advantage  you  will  see   that   it   has    Is  that  you   can  play  with  just   one  other  person    It you are a member of a ciicket  team or a football team, jou curnut get  ion without twenty-one other people���I :-s-  sume  that eleven is tlie  average of  tho  football as of the ciicket team.

Mark  again,   that cuoh   shot  that a golfer plays has its own history-  its own drama.    You hit tho ball squarely and falily, or you hrt half squarely or  fairly; or you hit It badlv, or you miss it  altogether.

Mr. Healy and His Hat.  To the surpilse of his fellow-members,  Mr. Healy has appeared in the House  ���of Commons in a new srlk hat. He has  told a cor re ondent of Tho Leinster  ���Leader' the history of tho old hat, with  'which   M.P.'s  have  grown   familiar.  "After the fight in the House of Com-  'mons in 189'," he said, "the Mayor and  corporation of Alexandna, Loursrana,  cabled to me that, reading that my hat  ���was broken In the melee, they had voted  me a new hat and hat-case out of the  public funds, and requested me to cable  the size of my head They then sent mo  .a new hat, which I undeitook, in acknowledging the gift, to wear to tho  utmost limits.  "The result i? that I have benn wearing  a shabby hat, and I have been so joked  -about It that, after ten years' wear, with  many a pang at parting with an old  Tfriond, I  decided  to discard the gift."   <* ���  Mrs. Emily Crawford.

"It is easy to say that Russia  designs upon India," savs Blackwood's  Magazine (Edinburgh), "and that It is  only our ill-natured opposition to her  harmless ambitions which causes her to  threaten us in that quarter If we 'are  only wise enough to give her what she  wants, she will 'leave us masters of the  greatest prize in the world, the fertile  plains and valleys of Southern Asia.' In  other words, we are advised to offer no  opposition to the occupatron by Russia ot  a position which will place Indra at her  mercy, and to trust to the infinite mercy  and goodness of the Czar and his advis-  eis to restrain their hands. Russia will  be so kind as to 'leave us masters' of  our Indian empire. It may be so, but  the British people will prefer to hold  their possessions by their own right  hands, and at no man's sufferance."  A Frenchman's Pun.  Two English M P.'s, Mr. Walter Palmer and Mr. Hany Samuel, were osts at  a luncheon party given to about forty of  the French Deputies at the Junior Carlton Club, says The London Chronicle.

All  ���went well, however, at the Junior Carlton luncheon, though later in the coffee-  room, when Thrglishmon wo><? presented,  it was noticed that the profundity of tho  introductory 'w was generally to be  taken as Indicative of a somewhat surface knowledge of lhe visitors' tongue  Ono Fronchman, with innate politeness  did his best to establish an International  accord by talking English; his facility in  which he attested by a pun: "Great treat  shall lead to groat Treaty."

It is always an advantage, and often a  distinct relief, to get at the true proportion of things. Here is the servant question, for instance, .which has 'appeared  at times to daiken the whole horizon of  woman, and beside whose tyranny the  tyrant man sinks Into innocuous desuetude. And, Jo! says a writer in Harper's  Bazar, a Massachusetts woman, grappling  with the real, thevtruly vital statistics in  the case, tells us the great, soothing fact  that 83 per cent, of the women of America do not keep servants at all Only  17 per cent, ot our sisters sit in the  ' shadow of the servant question to-day.  Even though that shadow be daik Indeed, and still darkenrng, foui-fifths and  more of the homes of America are strll  rejoicing in light and liberty.  Therefore, even when we hunt references, and tram incompetents, and overlook badly swept rooms because we dare  not drscipline Nora lest she should leave,  and endure the impertinent cook becaust  hor successor would probably .ie more so,  let us take comfort In the thought that  we are not facrng a universal problem,  but a very limited one. The great majority of American women still rule their  own households There are 83 per cent,  who have never bowed the knee to Bridget���who do not know anything about intelligence offices, or days out. or followers, or a week's warnmg. The question  as to eight-hour relays of domestics,  which vexes tho brains of millionaire mistresses, does not'stir these independent  housewives to more than an academic interest. The problem of a large cook in  a small flat never faces them in all its  concrete difficulty, nor have they ever  known the sorrows of the suburbanite  whose sarvants wrll not stay, though  wages soar.   Their hori70n Is clear.  When we are tempted to magnify our  troubles about servants, then let us remember that the American woman, In the  mass, has no servant question. A small  proportion of American women wrestlo  with it���that Is all. If ft never Is solved  tho nation Is not Inst, by any mean3.  Perhaps. In this thought, our worrlPS  over Bridget mav lose their monumental  proportions and assume a more suitablf  Biz*.  How to Get Sleep.

First,  theie , was   Lloyd   In-  wood,  tall, slender and  , finely knit, nervous and  And then  Paul  Tichlorne,  tall.  finely   knit,   nervous^ and  a&rk.  slender  and    .,    ,      blond. Each was the replica of the oth  er in everything except color. Lloyd's  eyes were black coals of fire; Paul's  ���teel-bluc jets of flame. Under stress of  .excitement, the blood coirrsed olive in  rlha face of Lloyd, crimson in the face oi  Paul But outside this matter of coloring they weie as alike as two peas. Both  were high-strung, prone to excessivo ten-  r ��ion and over-endurance, and they lived  constantly at conceit pitch. 1(  But there was a trio involved In this  remarkable friendship, and the third was  .short, and fat, 'nnd chunky,' and lazy,  and, loth to say, it was I. Paul and  ���Lloyd seemed born to rivalry with each  other, >and I to be'peacemaker between  them. We grew up together, tho threo  jof us, and full often have I received the  'angry blows each intended for the'othor,  JTaey were always competing, striving to  joutdo each other, and when ' entered  pupon s'omo such shugglp there \vii3 no  lUmit either' to their endeavors or pas-  laiona. ' ' '  , This intense spirit of rivalry obtained  |fn their studies and - their r games. If  jpaul memorized * one canto of_"Mar-  irmion," Lloyd . memorised two cantos,  iPaul came back with three, and'Lloyd  '���gain with four, till each knew the whole  .poem' by heart. I remember an incident)  ���that occurred "at the swimming-hole���-an  incident tragically significant of the life-  atrugglo between'them.   The boys had a  ���, game of diving to the bottom of a ten-  foot pool and holding v on by submerged  roots to see which could'stay under the  longest. Paul and Lloyd allowed them-  aelvea to be bantered into making the  descent together. "When I saw their  ���faces, set 'and determined, disappear in  the water as they sank swiftly down, I  felt a foreboding of something dreadful.  The moments sped, the^-ripples died away,  the face of .the pool grew placid and untroubled, and neither black nor_ golden  head broke surface in quest of air.   We  ��� above grew anxious The longest record  of the longest-winded boy had been exceeded, and still there ,was no sign. Air  bubbles trickled slowly upward, showing that the bieath had L been expelled from their lungs, and after'-that  the bubbles ceased "to trickle upward.  Each second became interminable, and,  unable longer to endure the suspense, I  ' plunged into the water. ��- ,  I found them down "at the bottom,  clutching tight to the "roots, their heads  not a'foot apart, their eyes wide open,  each glaring fixedly at the othpr. They  ���were suffering frightful torment, writn-  ing and twisting in the pangs of voluntary suffocation; for neither would .et  go and acknowledge -himself beaten. I  tried to break PauTs hold on the root,  -but"he resisted me fiercely. Then I Jost  my breath, and came to the surface bad-,  iy scared. -1 quickly -explained the situation, and "half a do7en of us went down.  and by main strength -tore them loose-  By the time we got them out, both were  unconscious, and it was only after much  ���barrel-rolling and rubbing and pounding-  that they finally came to their senses.,  They would have drowned there, had no,  one rescued them. '  .When Paul Tichlorne entered college,  !he let it be generally'understood that he,  iwas going in for the social sciences.  (Lloyd Inwood, entering at the same time,  elected to take the same course. But  iPaiil had had it secretly in mind all the  time to study ,the natural sciences, specializing on chemistry, and at the last  moment he switched over. Though Lloya  had already arranged his year's work  end attended the first lectures, .he at  once followed Paul's lead and .went in  for the natural sciences and especially  tfor chemistry. Their rivalry soon became  a noted thing throughout the university.,  Each was a spur to the other, and they  ���went into chemistry deeper than did ever,  students before���so deep, in fact, that  ere they took their sheepskins they could  have stumped any chemistry or "cow college" professor in the institution, save  "old" Mossrhead of the department, and  him even they puzzled and edified more1  than once. Lloyd's discovery of the  ���-death bacillus" of the sea toad, and his  Experiments on it with potassiuin cyanide, sent his name and that of his *uni-  ���jrerslty ringing round the world; nor  ���was Paul a whit behind when he succeeded In producing laboratory colloids  exhibiting amoeba-like activities, and  ���when he cast new light upon the processes of fertilization through his startling experiments with simple , sodium  chlorides and magnesium solutions on  low forms of marine life.  It was in their undergraduate days,  however, in the midst of their profound-  est plunges Into the mysteries of organic  chemistry, that Doris Van Benschoten  entered into their lives. Lloyd mot her,  first, but within twenty-four hours Pan*  saw to it that he also made her ao>,  qualntance. Of course, they fell in lova  with her, and she became the only thing  In life worth living for. They wooed ho*  ���with equal ardor and fire, and so in��  tense became their struggle for her thai  half the student-body took to wagering  ���wildly on the result. Even "old" Moss,  one day, after an astounding demonstration in his private laboratory by Paul,  was guilty to the extent of a month's  salary of backing him to become the  bridegroom of Doris Van Benschoten.  In the end sho solved the problem in  her own way, to everybody's satlsfac'  tion except Paul's and Lloyd's. Getting  them together, sho said that she really!  could not choose between them because  she loved them both equally well; and  that, unfortunately, since polyandry was  not exactly peimitted 'in the Unitea  States, she would be forced to forego the  honor and happiness of marrying either  of them. Each blamed the other foi this,  lamentable outcome, and the bitterness  between then* grew moie bitter.  But things came to a head soon  enough. It was at my home, after they  had taken their degrees and dropped out  of the world's sight, that the beginning  of the end camp to pass Both were'  men or means, with little inchnatron and  no necessity for professional life. My  friendship 'and their mutual animosity-  were the two Hiings' that linked them in  any way top her. While they were  very often at my place, they made it a'  fastidious point to avoid each other on  such visits, though it was inevitable, under the circumstances, that they should  come upon each other occasionally. .  On the day I have in recollection, Paul  Tichlorne had-been .nooning alb morning  In my study over a current scientific review. This left me free to ray own affairs, and I washout among my loses  when Lloyd Inwood ai lived. Clipping  and,pruning and tacking the climbers on'  the porch; with my mouth full of nails,  and Lloyd following me about and'lending a hand now and again, we fell to discussing the mythical lace of invisible  people, that strange and vagrant people  tho traditions of which have come dowi'  to us. Lloyd warmed to the talk iu lu*<  nervous, jerky 'fashion, and was soon  interrogating the physical pioperties end  possibilities of invisibility. A peifcctly  black object, he contended, would ,eludo  and defy the acutesl vision.  "Color is a sensation," he was saying.  "It has no objective reality. Without  light, we can see neither colors nor objects themselves. All objects are black  in tho dark, and in the dark it is impossible to see them. If no light strikes  upon them, then no light is flung back  from them to the eye, and;so we have  no vision-evidence of their being."  "But we see black objects in daylight,'  S objected. " ' V   ���� \  "Very true," he went on warmly. And  that is because they are not, perfectly  black. Were they perfectly black, abso  lutely black, as it weie, we could not  see them���ay, not in the tya<.e of a thou-  eand.suns^could we see them!- And so I  say, with the right pigments, piopei-ly  compounded, an absolutely black-paint  could be*(produced 'which wi ildr render  invisible whatever it applied to."  "It would be a remarkable discovery,"  I said non-committally, for the wholo  thing seemed too fantastical'for aught  but speculative purposes.  "Remarkable!" Lloyd slapped me on  the shoulder.���,"I should say so! Why  old chap, to coat myself with suah a  paint would be"to put the world at my  feet. The secrets of kings and courts  would be mine, 'the machrnations of diplomats and politicians, the double-play  of tricksters, the plans of trusts and corporations! " I,could keep my hand on the  inner 'pulse of things and become the  greatest power in the woild! Aud I���'  he broke off shortly,' then added, "Well,  I have begun my experrments, and I  don't mind telling you that I'm right dn  line for it." < t i  '"A"1 sneering laugh from the doorway  startled us. Paul.Tichlorne was "standing 'there, a smile aof mockery on hi?  lips.        * ���  --. "You forget, my dear Lloyd," he said  "Forget what?"  '���You forget," Paul went -on���-"ah, you  forget the shadow."  I saw Lloyd's face drop, but he -answered sneermgly, **T can carry a sunshade, you know." Then he turned sud  denly and fiercely upon him. "Look  here, Paul, you'll keep out of this if you  know what's good for you."  A rupture seemed imminent, but Paul  laughed good-naturedly. *"I wouldn't Jai  fingers on your dirty pigments.1 Sueceeo  beyond your most sanguine expectations  vet you will always fetch up against tht-  shadow. You can't get away from it  'Now I shall go on tie very opposite  tack. In the very nature of "iny pioposi-  tion the shadow will he eliminated���"  -"Transparency!"  ejaculated Lloyd instantly. '"But it can't be achieved"  "Oh, no;"of course not." And Paul  shrugged his shoulders and strolled ofi  down the briar-rose path.  This was the 'beginning of it. Both  men attacked the problem with all the  ,tremendou3 energy for which they were  noted, and with a* rancor and bittei-  ness which made me tiemble for the success of cither. ' Each trusted me to the  ntmost, and in the long weeks of expen  mentation that followed I was made a  party to both sides, listening to their  thoorizings and witnessing their demonstrations. Never, by woid or sign, did 1  convey to either the slightest hint of the  other's progress, and they respected me  for the seal I put upon my lips.  Lloyd Inwood, after prolonged and un-  intermittent application, when the tension upon his mind and body became too  great to bear, had a strange way of ob  taining relief. He attended prize-fights.  It was at one of these brutal exhibitions,  whither he had dragged me in order to  tell his latest results, that his theory re-'  celved striking confirmation.  "Do you see that red-whiskered man'?"  he asked, pointing across the ring to the  fifth tier of seats on the opposite side.  "And do you see the next man to him,  the one in the white hat? Well, there is  quite a gap between them, is there not?"  "Certainly," I answered. "They are a  seat apart. The gap is the unoccupied  Beat/-  He leaned over to me and spoke seriously. "Between the red-whlakcred man  and the whlte-hatted man sits Ben Was-  son. You have heard me speak of him.  He is the cleverest pugilist of his weight  in the country. He is also a Caribbean  negro, full-blooded, and the blackest in  the United States. He has on a black  overcoat buttoned up. I saw him when  he came in and took that seat. As soon  as he sat down he disappeared. Watch  closely; he may smile."  I was for crossing over to verify  Lloyd's statement, but he restrained me.  "Wait," he said.  I waited and watched, till the led-  whiskered   man   turned    his    head   as  -enough addressing the unoccupied seat;  and then, in that empty space, I saw the  rolling whites of a pair of eyes and-the  white double-ci listent of two rows oi  teeth, and foi the instant I could make  out a negio's face. But with the passing  of the smile his visibility passed, and  the chair seemed vacant as bcfoie.  "Were he peifcctly black, you could  sit alongside linn and not sec him,"  Lloyd said; and I confess the illustiation  was apt enough to malic me well-nigh  convinced.    "'        ���   ,  I .visited Lloyd's laboratory a number of times after that, and found him  always deep in his seaich after the absolute black: ".'His"1 experiments coveted all  s6rts of pigments, such as lamp Llacks,  Jtars, carbonized vegetable matters', soots  of oil8 and,fats and the various caibon-  ized animal substances.  "White light is composed of the seven  primary colors," he argued to mo "But  it is itself, of itself, invisible. Only ��� by  being reflected from ooieers do it and,  the objects become -isiblp But only  that portion of it that is reflected becomes visible. For'instance, here is a  blue tobacco-box.

We see only  ihe blue. -For the sam** reason grass'is  jrcen. The green waves of white light  ire thrown upon our eyes."  "When we paint our houses we do not  dpply color to them," he said at another  time. "What we do is to apply ceitain  lubstiances which have the property- of  absorbing from white light'all <the colors  except 'those which we would have our  houses appear. When a substance reflects all the colois to the,eye, it seems  to us'white. When it absorbs all the  colors, it is black. But, as 1 said before,  we have as yet-no perfect black. All  the colors are not absorbed. The perfect  black, guarding against high lights, will  be utterly and absolutely invisible^ Look  at that, for example."       , >, '',  He pointed' to the palette lying on his  work-table. , Different shades ,of black  -pigments iwere brushed-on it. One, in  particular, I could hardly see. It gave  my eyes a, blurring sensation, and I  rubbedrthem and looked again.  "That," ho said impi essively, "is tho  blackest black you or any mortal man  ever looked upon. But just you wait,  and I'll have a black so black that no  mortal man will be able to look upon it  ���and see itl" >. '  On the'other hand, I used to find Paul  Tichlorne^ plunged as deeply into tho  study,' of light' polarization, diffraction  andi interference, single/ and double refraction, and all manner of strangei organic compounds.  "Transparency: a state or quality of  body, .{which permits all rays^of light to  paS9 through," he defined for me. "That  is what-1 am seeking. Lloyd blunders  up against'the shadow with his perfect  opaqueness. But I .escape it. ,A trans-,  parent body casts no shadow; neither  does it reflect light-waves���that is, the  perfectly., transparent does not. , So,  avoiding high lights, not only will such  a "body cast no shadow, but since it reflects no light, it will also be invisible."  ' We were standing by the window at  another time. Paul was engaged in polishing a number of lenses, which were  ranged along the sill. Suddenly, after a  pause in the; conversation, he said, "Oh!  I've dropped a Iense. Stick your head  out, old man, and see where it went to."  Out I started to thrust my head, but  a sharp blow on the forehead caused me  to recoil. I rubbed my bruised brow and  gazed with reproachful enquiry at Paul,  who was laughing in gleeful, boyish  fashion. ,  ,  "Well?" he said.  "Well?" I echoed.  "Why don't you investigate?" he demanded. _ And investigate I did. Before  thrusting out my head, my senses, automatically active, had told me there was  nothing theie, that nothing intervened  between me and otit-of-doois, that the  aperture'of the window-opening was utterly empty. _ I stretched forth my hand  and felt a haid object, smooth and cool  And flat, which my touch, out of its experience, told me to be glass. I looked  again, but could sec positively nothing.  "White quaitzose s.uid,"Paul lattled  off, "sodic carbonate, slaked lime,' cutlet,  manganese peroxide���there you have it,  the finest French plate glass, made bj  the great St. Gobain Company, who mado  the finest plate glass in the world, and  this is the finest piece they ever made.  It cost a king's ransom. But look at it!  You can't see it! You don't know it'b  there 'till you run your head agoinst itl '  "Eh, old boyl That's merely an ob  ject lesson���certain elements, in them  selves opaque, yet so compounded as tc  give a resultant body which is transparent. But that is a matter of inorganic  chemistry, you say. Very true. But I  dare to assert, standing here on my two  feet, that in the organrc I can duplicate  whatever occurs in the inorganic."  "HereI" He held a test-tube between  me and the light, and I noted the cloudy  or muddy liquid it contained. He emp  tied the contents of another test-tubo  into it, and almost instantly it became  clear and "sparkling.  "Or here!" With quick, nervous movements among his array of test-tubes, he  turned a white solution to a wine color  and a light yellow solution to a dark  brown. He dropped a piece of litame  paper, the rocella tinctoria, into an acid,  when it changed instantly to red, and  on floating it in an alkali it turned as  quickly to blue.,. ,  "The litmus paper is still the litmus  paper," he enunciated in the formal manner of the lecturer. "I have not changed  it Into something else. Then what did 1  dot I merely changed the arrangement  of its molecules. Where, at first, it absorbed all colors from the light but red,  its molecular structure was so changed  that it absorbed red and all colors except blue. And so it goes, ad infinitum,  Now, what I propose to do is this." He  caused for a space.   "I propose to seek������  ay, and to find���the proper icagents,  which, acting upon the living organism,  will 'bring about molecular changes analogous to those you have just -.wtucssed  But these reagents, which I shall find  and for that matter, upon which I already have my hands, will not turn the  living body to blue or led or black, but  they will turn it to tinnspa'reney. All  light will pass thiough it. It will be invisible.   It will cast no shadow "'  A few weeks latei I went hunting with  Paul. He had ^been piomrsing me for  some time that I should have the pleasure of shooting over a wondeiful dog���'  the most .wonderful dog, in fact, that  ever man shot over, so he aveired, nnd  continued to aver till my currosrty was at  fever pitch. But on the morning in question I was disappointed, for there was  no dog in evidence.  "Don't see him about," Paul remarked  unconcernedly, and we set off across the  fields.  I could not imagine, at the time, what  was ailing me, 'but I had a feeling of  sonic iinpendirig;aiid deadly illness. My  neives weie all awry, and, from the astounding tricks they played'me, my  senses'seemed to have run liot. Strange  sounds disturbed me. At times I heard  the swish-swish of grass being shoved  aside, and once the patter of feet across  a patch of stony giound.  "Did you hear anything,Paul!" I asked  once.      ,   ,  But he shook his head and thrust his  feet steadily forwaid.  While climbing a fence, I heard tho  low, eager whine of a dog, apparently  from within a couple of feet of me; but  on looking about me I saw nothing. , ���  .1 dropped to the ground, limp andt  trembling. - "- ���***flwl'*1  . "Paul," I said, "we had better return  to the house. ,Jam afraid I am going  to be sick."  "Nonsense, old man," he answered.  "The sunshine has gone'to,your head  like wine. You'll be all right. It'B fa-'  mous weather.", ^ ,  But1, ��� passing along a narrow path  through a clump of cottonwoods, some  objgct_brushed against *jny Jena, and 1  -tumbled and nearly fell. 'I looked with ���  tudden anxiety at Paul. v'  1 "What's the matter?" he asked. "Trip,  ���ling over your own feet'"      \t  I kept my tongue between my teeth  ind plodded on, though-sore peiplexed  ind thoroughly satisfied that some acute  ind mystenous malady had attacked my  aerves. So far my eyes had escaped,  but, when we got to the' open fields'  Again, even my vision went back on me.  ,3trange flashes of vari-colored, rainbow  right began to, appear and disappeai 'on  the path before .me. , Still, I,managed to  keep myself in hand, till'the vaii-colored  lights persisted for, a space of fully  twenty seconds, dancing and flashing m  continuous play. Then-I sat'down,' weak  and shaky.   * -> >     ��  fit's all up with me," I gasped, covering my eyes with my hands. "It has attacked my eyes. Paul, take me home."  .-���But Paul laughed long and loud.  "What did I tell you?���the most wonderful, dog, eh? Well, what do you  think?" _ '   ,c> '  He turned partly from me >and began  to whistle. I heard the patter of feet,  the panting of a heated animal, and the  unmistakable yelp of a dog. Then Paul  stooped down and apparently fondled the  empty air.  "Here!    Give me your fist."    .  ,  And he rubbed"my hand over the cold  nose and jowls of'a dog    A dog it certainly   was,   with,   the   shape   and   the  smooth short coat of a pointer.^   *  Suffice to say, I speedily recovered my  spirits and contiol. Paul put a collar  about the animal's neck and tied his  handkei chief to its tail. And then was  vouchsafed us the lemaikable sight of  an empty collar and a waving handkerchief cavorting over the fields It was  something to see that collar and handkerchief pin1 a bevy of quail in a clump  of locusts and remain rigid and immovable till we had flushed the birds  Now and again the dog emitted the  vari-colored light flashes I have mentioned. The one thing, Paul explained,  which he had not anticipated and which  he doubted could be overcome. y%  ' "They'ie a large famrly," he sals;  "these sun dogs, wind dogs, rainbows,  halos, and paihelia. They are produced  by refraction of light from mineral arid  ice crystals, from mist, rain, spiay and  no end of things; and I am afiaid they  are the penalty I must pay for transparency. I escaped Lloyd's shadow only  to fetch up against the rainbow flash."  A couple of days latei, before the entrance to Paul's laboiatory, I encountered a terrible stench. So overpowering  was it that it was easy to discover the  source���a mnss of puticscent matter on  the doorstep which in general outlines  resembled a dog.  Paul was startled when he investigated myfind. It was his invisible dog, or  rather, what had been his invisible dog  for it was now plainly visible. It had  been playing about but a few minutes  before in all health and strength. Closer  examination revealed that the skull had  been crushed by some heavy blow. While  it was strange that the animal should  have been killed, the inexplicable thing  was that it should so quickly decay.  "The reagents I injected into its system were harmless," Paul explained  "Yet they were powerful, and it appears  that when death comes they force practically instantaneous disintegration. Be-  markable! Most remarkable 1 Well, tho  only thing is not to die. They do not  harm so long as one lives. But I do won-  deT who smashed in that dog's head."  Light, however, was thrown upon this  when a frightened housemaid brought  the news that Gaffer Bedshaw had that  very morning, not more than an hour  back, gone violently insane, and wa3  strapped down at home, in the huntsman's lodge, wheie he raved of a battle  with a ferocious and gigantic beast which  he had encountered in the Tichlorne pasture. He claimed that the thing, whatever it was, na- invisible, that with his  own eyes he had seen that it was invisi  hie; wherefore ]rw tearful wife and  daughters shook their heads, and wherefore he but waxed the moie violent and  the straps by another hole.       '  Nor, i while Paul Tichlorne  was  thus  successfully mastering the problem of invisibility, was Lloyd Inwood a  hind.   I went over in answer to a message of his to tome nnd see Qiow ho was  getting on.    Now, his laboiatory occu-  ''  pied an isolated situation in the midst of  his  vast  grounds.    It   was  built  in  a.   j  pleasant little glade, sunounded on all'  sides by a dense foi est giowth, and was   ���  to be gained by way of a winding and  erratic path     Brit I had 'tr.v-.eled that^  path so often as to know every foot of  it,   and   conceive  my   suipnse   when  X   ,���  came upon tire glade and found no la-'',  boratory.

I  started to  walk   across  what, had!   T  once been its site.   "This," I said to my- ,  self, "should be where the step went up .'  to the door," and barely were the words ��  out of my mouth when I stubbed my toe- ''  on some obstacle, pitched forward, anoV 4  fcutted my head into something that felt!. i|  very much like a door.    I reached ou�� -  my hand.   It was a door.   I found thei '  knob  and turned  it.    And at once, aa' <���  the door swung mwaid on its hinges, thei \ '  whole interior of the laboratory 'impinged! ���'-  upon   my   vision   ,   Greeting   Lloyd,* Pi  closed the door and hacked up the path' ��� *���  a fewj paces.   I could see nothing of th*,,   j  building.

How's  your   head?  '��� You>  bumped it pretty, solidly, I imagine."  - >��� i' ���  "Never mind that," he interrupted myy,  congratulations.   "I've something betteuj  for you to do."

"Now spread it on,l'  ind keep your eyes 'open." *���; J  'I-dipped the brush lnto'the seemingly;  empty pot, and gave him a long stroke*  across his chest.    With, the'passage* ofj,  the brush  the  living flesh disappeared*;  from beneath.   I covered hiB right leg^7  and he was as a one-legged man defying1'  all laws of gravitation.   And so, stroka.;  )>y stroke, member by member, I pointedl j  tloyd Inwood into nothingness.   It waa i  a creepy experience, and I was glad when?  naught remained in,sight but Ms burn-*',  Ing black! eyes, poised apparently, unsug-,  ported in mid-air. - - '--j  "I have a refined and harmless solu-4  tion for them," he said. "A fine sprays  with an air-brush, and presto 1 I am not." |{  This deftly accomplished, he said, "Now.-ii,  I Bhall move about, and do you tell me  what sensations you experience."       -   i ���  "In the first place, I cannot see you,"i  I said, and I could hear his gleeful laugh '||  from the midst of the emptiness. "Of,fj;  course," I continued, "you cannot escape-fj  your shadow, but that was to be ex- 5  pected. When you pass between my,-^  eye and an object, the object disappears, ||i|  but so unusual and incomprehensible is Jrj  its disappearance that it seems to nae a-8-|IL  though my eyes had blurred. When jrou leg;  move rapidly I experience a bewildering ��p|l  succession of blurs. The blurring sensa- g||'j  tion makes my eyes ache and my brain MS  tired.'  n  "Have you any other warnings of myr'fi|'  presence?" he asked. *  "No, and yes," I answered. "When ,  you are near ine I have feelings similar. ||;i  to those produced by dank warehouses, AJj  gloomy crypts, and deep mines. And aa?]|  sailors feel the loom of the land on dark U*]  nights, so I think I feel the loom of your Wi  body. But it is all very vague and in-f?l?i  tangible." ( ' tp'i  Long we talked, that last morning inV$  his laboratory; and when I turned tc*^  go, he put.his unseen hand in mine witb/ j1'1  nervous grip, and said, "Now I shall con- [  quer the world!"

I took out after it, and when I v|  had laid the racquet upon it for a half- ',��  dozen stout blows, Paul's voice rang out: ^'  "Enough!   Enough!   Oh!. Ouch!  Stop!
