HUDSON-FULTON  CELEBRATION  (Continued from last week.)  Miss M. C. Henderson, milliner,  has a store on Copper street opposite  the Logan Bros, jewelry store, where  every manner of beautiful creations  are available at all prices. Miss Henderson has been here for five years,  and enjoys a large patronage.  Hotels  The Pioneer hotel is well named.  It was built in 1895, and was the forerunner of the many hospitable hostel-  ries to be erected in Greenwood.  Wm. Nelson is the proprietor, and a  most excellent host. Mrs. Nelson  attends to the dining room, which has  the distinction of being Greenwood's  first ballroom, for the initial terpsi-  chorean evening was held in this room  14 years ago, and was a memorable  event, one couple taking the stove,  pipe and fittings with them in their  mazy whirl. The first Xmas dinner  served in Greenwood was at the  Pioneer, and many a good time since  has occurred in Greenwood's oldest  hotel. Mr. Nelson has accommodation for a large number of guests and  deserves a fuller measure of business  than he has received.  The Norden hotel, on Copper  street, was built in October, 1899,  and in 1907 took over the Queen's  hotel, next door, and is now one of  the largest and best appointed hotels  in town. The proprietors are Messrs.  Sater and Johns, both good fellows,  who attend to the wants of the inner  man in a well conducted dining room  and an excellent bar. The Norden  is the town headquarters for the  Mother Lode stage.  The Rossland hotel, on Copper  street, with George Wellwood, proprietor, is one of the old time hotels  of Greenwood. Mr. Wellwood  started in business February 12, 1900.  The Rossland is the home of many  of the old timers, and George has a  welcome for one and all. He has  accommodation for a number of  guests. Mrs. Wellwood attends to  the dining room.  The Imperial hotel is the leading  hotel in Greenwood, and is admirably  conducted by the proprietors, Messrs.  Graham & Parry. They started business in the old Imperial, now known  as the Clarendon hotel, in the winter  of 1897, where they did an enormous  business. Those were the days of  Greenwood's beginnings. There  were few families here, few homes,  and everyone boarded at the Imperial.  In January, 1900, almost .10 years  ago, Messrs. Graham & Parry moved  to their new quarters, the present  three-storey building on the corner of  Copper and Deadwood streets, and  have maintained their business prestige throughout the dull times of the  past few years. In June, 1906, they  bought the spacious Armstrong hotel  as an adjunct to their sleeping accommodation. The Imperial bar is a  favorite resort, where Pat presides,  and where first-class potions can be  obtained in any quantity. The Imperial dining room is large and comfortable, the meals and attendance are  first-class. For the convenience of  travelers the Imperial has several large  sample rooms in connection with the  establishment. A bus meets every  train, and Pat meets every bus.  The Clarendon hotel has changed  hands possibly more often than any  other in Greenwood. It is situated  on the best corner in town, on Copper and Greenwood streets, opposite  the Bank of Montreal. The present  proprietor is J. H. Goodeve, more  popularly known as "Doc," a most  efficient host, who took over the business of D. Manchester last August.  The Clarendon is a three-storey building and has a large number of comfortable bedrooms to accommodate  the traveling public. Doc is an able  reconteur and his patrons can be sure  of the " very latest" with every wet  they buy.  Messrs. Greig & Morrison are the  proprietors of the Pacific hotel,-a  three-storey building on Copper street,  where they have been in business  since May, 1906. The Pacific has a  commodious dining room and lunch  counter, with an excellent cuisine and  staff. This is a most popular establishment and meals are served at popular prices. The bedrooms are large  and most comfortable. The hotel is  heated throughout by hot water radiators and lighted by electricity. Both  Alex Greig and Norman Morrison attend to the liquid refreshments and  are deservedly popular.  The Windsor hotel, next door to  the Pacific, was originally a log building, and the first to be built on Copper street. The present building is a  three-storey structure with a fine,  large dining room, lunch counter,  bar room and billiard room on the  ground floor. A servicable parlor and  many large and well lighted bedrooms  in the upper stories complete the establishment. Charles McClung, the  proprietor, came to Greenwood in  June, 1908, and has built up a most  excellent business. The hotel is  steam heated and has every accommodation for the traveling public.  This article continued next week.  Henry Hudson, au Englishman  in the employ of the Dutch, was  the first to discover the great  river of America, which bears his  name. This was in September.  1609. His ship was called the  Half Moon.  Robert Pulton was the man  who, in 1807, plied the first steamboat, the Clermont, on the Hudson.  The present historical pageant  being celebrated in New York is  designed to do honor to these two  great pioneers. The Hudson was  an unknown stream and New  York merely a small Dutch village in Hudson's day. He opened  up a new world, and by his daring voyage in his little 60-ton  cokle shell laid the foundations  of the greatest harbor in the  world. Fulton's pioneer steamboat, 200 years later, was the  forerunner of the mighty leviathans that daily, hourly throb  their way across the vast oceans  and have annihilated distance between land and land.  All honor to these great men.  New York this week is rightly  honoring herself in remembering  her two pioneers. Every great  nation is represented by a flotilla  of men-of-war and the envoys of  the powers have joined the general jubilation  It is sad to think that while  Fulton was laid at rest with honor by his countrymen. Hudson,  after repeated failure to sail to  China by the North pole, died  miserably, trying to get out of  Hudson's Bay, called after him,  after mutiny on board his little  ship, abandoned and alone on the  waters of that icy bay.  COOK VS. PEARY  THE KING WIRES  BOY SCOUTS  Dr. Cook will sue Peary to recover damages for slander. This  is tbe latest report by friends of  the Doctor. Affiidavits have  already been prepared to be used  in the case. The North pole will  be exhibit "A."  IN FAVOR OF COMPANY  On August 24, a special Court  of Revision was held in Greenwood to hear an appeal from excessive taxation made by the B. C.  Copper Co. The Judge's decision  has just "been handed down in  favor of the company.  Eleven thousand Boy Scouts  marched past Lieutenant General  Baden-Powell at the Crystal Palace first annual review recently in  a column that took 25 minutes to  pass the saluting point.  The following message from  the King was received:  "The King is glad to know  that the Boy Scouts are holding  their first annual parade. Please  assure the boys that the King  takes the greatest interest in  them, and tell them that if he  should call upon them later in his  life the sense of patriotic responsibility and habits of discipline which they are now acquiring an boys will enable them to  do their duty as men, should any  danger threaten the empire."  A reply was sent as follows:  '��� Boy Scouts, assembled at  Crvstal Palace, present tbeir  bumble duty, and thank His  Majesty for his gracious message,  which will be a great incentive to  them to prepare at all times to  perform tbeir duty to King and  country before all else."  The message was received with  a roar of treble cheering such as  the Crystal Palace must have seldom heard. Countless staves  sprang into the air above the  heads of the great khaki crowd  of boys, and were shaken like a  forest of quivering reeds.  COAST NEWS  BOUNDARY  OLD TIMER  Elbert Hubbard, the noted Roy-  crofter, will lecture at the Vancouver Opera house, October 7.  Mayor Keary, of New Westminster, who bas been elected  eight times, has signified his intention not to stand for re-election.  A party of over 100 French  Canadian lumber workmen arrived on Monday at New Westminster and will replace the Orientals at present employed in the  sawmills.  Tag clay in Vancouver netted  enough to pay the- debt on the  home of the Children's Aid  society and leave a substantial  balance as a necleus for an early  addition to the building.  A bie timber deal was closed  last week when 54,000 acres of  timber land was sold by tht E. &  N. Railroad to parties represented by A. B. Krutz of New York.  The consideration is in the neighborhood of 1% millions.  The marriage took place at the  hrm* of the bride's sister, Mrs.  Andrew Little, at Lit Me Falls,  N.

At the  outbreak of the war in South  Africa, he went to fight for the  old country, and while he was in  some of *he heaviest engagements, managed to come track  unharmed. But in one engagement Jack was captured, and the  capture is permanent. The Times  extends heartiest congratulations.

C.'S FASCINATION  That tiritish Columbia pos  sesses a peculiar fascination, for  those who have once breathed its  balmy summer air, or its dry  winter cold, or those who have  Wdded through its warm coast  rain;, is a fact. It is still -'home"  to those who left for the war in  South Africa, and found work  there later, and Englishmen who  exchange the damp chill days in  the old country for the healthy  climate of this province, seldom  return to their motherland aft��r  a visit, of any length to I��. C.  Last week we had the pleasure  of spending a most enjoyable evening with an old timer, a friend  of some 16 years standing, John  A. Coryell, of Grand Forks, who  went to Africa to fight the Boers  eight years ago, and remained to  develop mines and oil areas, till  he found the B. C. fascination too  strong for him and returned to  our hospitable mountains and our  superb climatic conditions. Jack  visited every part ot the British  possessions,   and    found   no   one  lone even suggested a  one (which is worse), but they  one and all attached a mercenary  addendum to tbeir several requisitions, and  therein   lies   the dis-  I  appointment.  We were prepared to boost  them, one and all, to help provide them with helpmeets, to help  ourselves, too, by charging - a  small fee for advertising their  individual mere male charm", and  incidentally assist in making  some poor, lone angels happy, or  otherwise, but all that is past.  Such philanthropic motives are  ruined by this cry for dough ���  and we hope, that if any of these  eligibles get any life companion  at all, that they have to provide  the dough themselves they knead  for their bread and butter.

Good housewives consider cleanliness and purity first of all; that's why  Quaker Oats is their choice among all  oatmeals. In making Quaker Oati the  grain is sifted and resifted, passing  through more than fifty processes of  cleaning before it is cooked and rolled.  If you took a handful of oats and  scrubbed and polished and wiped each  separate grain, it wouldn't then be  nearly as clean as Quaker Oats. No  human hand ever touches a single  grain of Quaker Oats from the field  to your kitchen. The best advice on  foods you could have is: Eat Quaker  Oats every morning for breakfast.  Yoti'll find Quaker Oats put up in  two size packages, the regular size and  the large, family size for those who  are not convenient to the store. The  large package: contains 'a piece of  handsome china for the table. Quaker  Oats is one of Canada's greatest products. *  fiiLIII  Makes Better Bread  You will appreciate this  fact if you have tried it.

The  Bobbs-Merrill   Company.  be was about to speak _ knock came  at tbe cabin door, and Prendergast  opened It  The visitor jaarry recognized Instantly. It was the man wbo had  called for fair play at the fight before  the saloon, wbo bad drawn him Into  the hotel.  Felder carried a bundle under blB  arm. He nodded curtly to Prendergast and addressed himself to Harry.  "I am the bearer of n gift from  some one in tbe town," he said. "I  have been asked to deMver this to  you." He put the bundle into the  other's hands.  Harry drew up one of the chairs  hastily. "Please sit down," he ^Ud  courteously. He looked at the bundle  curiously. "Et eos dona ferentes," he  said slowly. "A gift from some one  in the town!"  A keen surprise Hushed Into the lawyer's glance.   "The quotation  Is cias-  "It was-hl.i e2-}>rcsn wish that I give tht  violin to ynu.v  sic," he said, "but it need not apply  here." lie took the hmidle, unwrapped  it and disclosed :i buttered violin. "Let  me explain," he continued. "B'or the  owner of this you fought a battle yesterday. You tested its tone a little  later. It seems that you are a master  of the most dltlk-ult of Instruments.  There was a time, I believe, when the  old man was its master also. He was  once, tbey say, tbe conductor of an  orchestra in San Francisco. Drink and  the devil finally brought him down  For three years past he has lived In  Smoky Mountain. Nobody knows his  name.., The town has always called  bim 'Old Despair.' i'ou did him what  is perhaps the first real kindness he  has ever known at its hands. He has  done the only thing be could to requite  It"  Harry had colored painfully as Felder began\o speak. His voice was unsteady as he answered:  "I appreciate it, I am deeply grateful,  but it is quite impossible that I accept  It from him."  "You need not hesitate," said the  lawyer. "Old Despair needs it no longer. He died last night in Devlin's  dance hal], where he plnyed when he  was sober enough for his lodging.' I  happened to be near by, and 1 assure  you It was his express wish that I give  the violin "to you."  Rising, he held- out his hand. "Good  night," he said. "I hope your memory  ���will soon return. The town is much interested in your case."  The flush grew deeper in Harry's  cheek, though he saw there was nothing Ironical in the remark. "I scarcely  hope so much," he replied. "I am  learning that forgetfulness bas its advantages."  Chapter 1T&&  HE little town had been  unconsciously grateful  for its new^ sensation.  Tbe return "of Hugh  Stires and his apparent^  curious transformation  was the prime subject of conversation.  For a half year the place bad known  but one other event us startling. That  iKwas tbe finding some months, before  [of a dead body���that of a comparative  stranger In tbe place���thrust beneath  a thicket on Smoky mountain, on tbe  very claim which now held Prendergast and his partner.  The "amen corner" of tbe Mountain  Valley House bad discussed the pros  and cons exhaustively. There were  many wbo sneered at the loss of memory and took tbeir cue from Devlin,  who, smarting "from his humiliation  and nursing venom, revamped suspicions wherever be showed his battered  face. In bis opinion Hugb Stires was  "playing a slick game."  "Your view Is colored by your prejudices, Devlin," said Felder. "He's been  a blackleg in the past���granted. But  give the devil his due. As for the  other ugly tale, there's no more evidence against bim than there Is  against you or men*  "They didn't find the body on my  ground," had been the other's surly  retort, ''and I didn't clear out tbe day  before either."  The phenomenon, however, whether  credited or poohpoohed, was a drawing card. More than a few found occasion to climb the mountain by the  hillside trail that skirted the lonely  cabin. These ns likely as. not saw  Prendergast lounging in the doorway  smoking, while tbe younger man  worked, leading a trench along the  brow of the hill to bring the water  from its Intake, which Harry^s quick  eye bad seen was practicable.  The spectacle of Hugh Stires, who  bad been used to pass his days In the  saloons ^md his nights in even less becoming resorts, turned practical n-_ez  addeH a touch of opera bouffe to the  situation that to a degree modulated  tbe rigor of dispraise. It was tbe consensus of opinion that the new Hugh  Stires seemed vastly different from the  old: that if be were "playing a game"  It was a curious one.  On the one side was' a black record,  exemplified In Prendergast���clouded infamy, a sbudderiug abhorrence of his  past self as be saw It through the pitiless lens of public opinion; on the other  was a grim constancy of purpose, a passionate wish to reconstruct the warped  structure of life of which" he found  himself the tenant, days of healthful,  peace inspiring toil, a woman's face  that threaded his every thought. As he  wielded his pick In the trench or lit bo  rlously washed out the few glistening  grains that now were to mean bis dully sustenance he turned often to gaze  up the slope where, set In its foliage.  the glass roof of tbe sanitarium sparkled softly through the Indian haze  Strange thut the sight should mysteriously suggest the face that haunted  him!  Prendergast saw the abstracted re  Sard as he came up the trail from the  town. He was in an ugly humor. Tbe  hag of gold dust which he had shown  to Harry he had not returned to tlie  hiding place In the wall, and with this  in his pocket the faro (able had thai  day tempted him The pouch was  empty now.  Harry's back wns toward bim. .and  the gold pan In which he had been  washing the gravel lay at his feet.  With a noiseless, mirthless laugh Prendergast stole into the cabin and reach  ed down from the shelf the bottle into  which each day Harry had poured his  scanty findings. He weighed it in his  hand���almost two ounces, a little less  than $20. He hastily took the empty  hag from bis pocket.  But just then a shadow darkened the  doorway, and Harry entered. He saw  the action and. striding forward, took  the bottle from the other's hand.  Prendergast turned on him, a sinister snarl under his affectation of surprise. "Can't you attend to your own  rat killing?" he growled. "I guess I've  got a right to what I need."  "Not to that" 'said Harry quietly.  "We shall touch the bottom of the  flour sack tomorrow. _You expect to get  your meals here, I presume."---  "I still look forward to that pleasure," answered Prendergast, with an  evil sneer. "Three meals a day and a  rotten roof over my head. When I  think of the little I have done to deserve it, the hospitality overcomes me.  All I bare done is to keep you from  starving to death and out of quod at  tbe same time. I only taught you a  safe way to beat tbe game, an easier  one than you seem to know, and to  live on Easy street."  "I am looking for no easy way," responded Harry, "whatever you mean  by that I expect to earn my living as  I'm earning it now. It's an honest  method, at all events."  "You've grown all fired particular  since you lost your memory," retorted  Prendergast, bis eyes narrowing.  "You'll be turning dominie one of these  days. Perhaps you expect to get the  town to take-up with you and to make  love to the beauty in the green riding  habit that brought you here on ber  horse the night you were out of your  head."  Harry started. "What do you mean?"  he asked thickly.  Prendergast's oily, manner was gone  now. His savage temper came uppermost.  "I forgot yon didn't know about  that" be scoffed "1 made a neat story  of it in the town. They've been gabbling about it ever since."  Harry caught bis breath. As through  a mist be saw again that green habit  on the hotel balcony���that face that  had haunted bis waking consciousness  It bad not been Prendergast alone,  then, who had brought him here. And  her act of charity had been made, no  doubt, a thing for the tittering of tho  town, cheapened by chatter, coarsened  by Joke!  "I wonder If she'd done it if she'd  known all I know," continued the otb  er malevolently.   "You'd better go up  to the sanitarium, Hugh, and give ber  a nice sweet kiss for It I"  A lust of rage rose in Harry's throat  but he choked it down. His hand fell  like iron on Prendergast's shoulder and turned  him' forcibly toward tbe open  door. His other  baud pointed, aud  b i s suppressed  voice said: "This  cabin bas grown  too small for us  both. The town  will suit you bet  ter."  Prendergast  shrank before the  wrath whitened  face, the danger  ous sparkle in the  eyes. "You've got  through with me,", he glowered, "and  you think you can go it alone." Tbe  old suspicion leaped in the malicious  countehance. "Well, It won't pay you  to try it yet I know too much! Do  you understand? I know too much!"  Harry went out of tbe cabin. At the  door he turned. "If there is anything  you own here," be said, "take It with  you. You needn't be here when I come  back."  His fingers shaking with the black  rage In his heart, Prendergast gathered his few belongings, rolled them in  the white horse skin which he drew  from beneath his bunk and wrapped  the whole in a blanket He fastened  the bundle in a pack strap, slung it  over his shoulder and left the cabin-  He settled his burden and went rapidly down the trail, turning over in hi-  mind his future schemes.  As It rh-iired; there was ose -who  'Tlie urum vrill suit  you better."  saw his vindictive face. Jessica,  crouched on the Knob, had seen hlni  come and now depart, pack on back,  and guessed that the pair had parted  company. Her whole being flamed  with sympathy. She could see his  malignant scowl plainly from where  she leaned, screened by the bushes.  It terrified her. What had passed between them in the cabin? She left  the Knob wondering.  All that evening she was 111 at ease.  At midnight sleepless, she was looking out from her bedroom window  across the phantom peopled shadows,  where on the face of the pale sky the  stars trembled like slow tears. Anxiety and dread were in her heart; a  pale phantom of fear seemed lurking  in the shadows; the night was full of  dread.  j&K  Chapter   18     rj  N the day following the  explusion of Prendergast Harry woke rest  less aud unrcfreshed  fleeting sensations  mocked him���a disturbing conviction  that the struggling memory in some  measure had succeeded in reasserting  itself in the shadowy kingdom of sleep  Waking, the apparitions were lied  again into their obscurity, leaving onlj  the wraiths of recollection to startle  and disquiet A girl's face hovered  always before him���ruling his con  seiousuess as i* had ruled his sleeping  thought  He took down from its shelf the  bottle he bad rescued from Prender  gast's intention and emptied it of its  glistening grains���enough to replenish  his depleted stock of provisions.

But.  there could be no remedy in conceal  ment If he was to live and work  there, appear he must on the streets  sooner or later. Smoky Mountain  must continue to think of him as it  might.

Of all this, however,  the object of their "I told you so"  was serenely ignorant  Entering the town, there were few  stirring on the sunny streets, but he  could not but be aware that those he  met stopped to gaze after him. Some  indeed followed. His first objective  point was a jeweler's, where he could  turn his gold dust into readier coin  for needful purchases. He saw a  sign next the Mountain Valley House  and entered.  The jeweler weighed the dust with  a distrustful frown, but Harris head  was turned away He was reading a  freshly printed placard tacked on the  wall, an offer of reward for the detection of the sluice thief. He read it  through mechanically, for as he read  there came from the street outside a  sound that touched a muffled chord in  his brain. It was the exhaust of a  motor car.  He thrust the money the goldsmith  grudgingly banded him into his pocket  and turned to tho door. A long red  automobile bad stopped at the curb.  Two men whom it curried were just  entering the botel. Something In the  sight of the long, low "racer" reminded  flnrry���of what? Ills eye traced its  polished lines, noting Us cunning mechanism, its build for silent speed, with  the eager lighting of a connoisseur. He  took a step toward it, oblivious to all  about him.  He did not note that men were gathering, that the nearest saloon was  emptying of its occupants. -Nor did he  see a girl on horseback, with a tiny  child before her on the saddle, who  reined up sharply opposite.  The rider was Jessica, the child an  ecstatic five-year-old she had picked up  on the fringe of the town to canter In  with her bands gripping the pommel of  the saddle. She saw Harry's' position  instantly and guessed it perilous. What  did the men mean to do? She leaned  forward, a swift apprehension in ber  face.  Harry came back suddenly to a realization of his surroundings. He looked  about bim, startled, his cheek darkening its red, every muscle Instinctively  tightening.

About 200 years ago it  was introduced into London by  Jonas Hanwav, a benevolent and  eccentric old gentleman. When  he first raised his umbrella, on n  rainy day, he found it of unexpected use in keeping off a shower  of sticks and stories, with which  the street, boys pelted him.
