BURNS & CO.  DEALERS IN  FRESH & CURED  MEATS.   FISH  AND POULTRY  It is only a little more than eleven  years since Admiral Dewey fought  the battle of Manila bay. It is not  quite eleven years since the occupation of Manila by the American) their friends  troops, and it is only eight years since  American civil government was established in the islands. The achievements of American rule in that short  time have revolutionized the life of  thc islands from the topmost circles of  society in Manila to the everyday life  of the dog-eating, head-hunting savages of the mountains. More has  been done in a decade than Spain accomplished in over three centuries.  America found a subject people  which had absolutely no part in the  government, and which for years had  been in a constant state of insurrection against the authorities, America  brought about peace by making war  effective, and put down the bandits  and thieves, as well as the political insurgents. Today the Philipines enjoy  a tranquility never before dreamed of  in the islands. The Fhilipinos have  been granted almost complete autonomy in municipal affairs and have been  granted a large share in the legislative,  executive and judicial government of  the islands.  America found a people which had  never  enjoyed   free  speech or a free  press.    Men who spoke   for  the liberty of their countrymen   were  executed   without   trial.     Persons  who  complained of the corruption   of the  government were cast  into noisome  prisons.    All that has been   changed.  The press  is  free,   the right of free  speech is guaranteed, the right of petition is assured and men may talk of  independence as much as  they please  unless they advocate riot or rebellion.  America   found   the   church   and  state so combined that there was great  difficulty in demarking the province of  one from that of the other in government.    Complete separation has been  accomplished, the right of every man  to worship as he sees fit is guaranteed,  the lands of the religious orders were  purchased and held for  settlement by  freeholders.   And all of this has been  accomplished peacefully.  America found a fluctuating money  in use and replaced it with a fixed and  stable currency upon the gold standard, so that in every part of the islands the money is the same and its  value known.  Americans have constructed hundreds of miles of highways and are  unceasingly pushing the work of new  construction. They have built bridges  and culverts of steel and concrete,  and have connected widely separated  communities by easy transportation.  Where was one short railway is now  more than 500 miles of good railway  lines  America found 90 per  cent of the  people in absolute   ignorance.    Now  there are half a million pupils  in the  public schools.    A model  postal system has been  inaugurated   and  every  town  and village   is  supplied with a  regular mail.    Eleven years  ago Manila was unpaved, today it  is  one of  the finest cities in the   Orient.    The  prisons which under Spanish rule were  conducted like thc prisons of the middle ages, have been converted into reformatory institutions,  and   are clean.  The judiciary and civil  service   were  entirely   controlled    by    favoriteism.  Now they are maintained   as   part of  the judiciary and civil  service  of the  United States.    The old taxation system has gone.     It laid  the burden on  the very poor.    The Americans have  established a system that   secures   the  necessary revenues by a levy upon the  people in proportion to their ability to  pay.    Besides these manifold reformations, the Americans have taught the  rich and poor alike that  honest labor  is not disgraceful, and the old   dislike  of work has been superceded by business-like endeavor with prosperity as a  natural result.  SPAIN'S THRONE  IS TOTTERING  On Thursday last Dr. and Mrs.  J. E. Spankie left on the C. P.  R, for Vancouver, and were seen  off at the station by a number of  The Doctor was  so essentially a part of Greenwood that it will be Sotue li'|tle  time before his place will be filled. He was born at Kingston.  Ontario, and graduated from  Queen's university, after which he  moved to New York, to study  further, and practice. It was in  1896 that the genial doctor first  moved west, to Ban if, as assistant to Dr. Brett at the sanatorium,  Remaining at Banff  until  November 1899, Dr.   Spankie   then  moved to Greenwood.   That was  the year of Greenwood posperity.  Everyone was making money, and  the doctor built up a large   practice here.    He made a  big  circle  of friends and like   manv   others  lie made a goodly sum of money.  Hut he spent his   money   in   the  town, and encouraged the efforts  of several of our smaller mining  companies by putting his money  against tbeir experience, aud some  day these   same   properties   will  make   the   doctor   a   rich   man.  He has always shewn his faith in  the district   and has   evinced   a  public spirit which is a good example to those who are left.  In 1<)03 Dr. Spankie went to  New York for a holiday, but he  returned with a bride. The  townspeople turned out to welcome tbe popular doctor home,  and the city band serenaded him.  Since then the doctor and Mrs.  Spankie have made Greenwood  their permanent home.  The doctor has won the esteem  of all with whom he has bad to  do, especially those who have Had  occasion to experience his extreme  kindness and readiness to assist  those who were unfortunate.  For the past year he was the  British Columbia Copper company doctor.  Before leaving the doctor was  the recipient of an illuminated  address from the citizens of Greenwood, and a banquet given in his  honor at the Imperial hotel.  Mrs. Spankie was presented with  some choice cut glass by the ladies of the town, and this week  several farewell parties have been  given for her.  The Dector and Mrs. Spankie  carry with them to Vancouver  the heartiest good wishes of  everyone in Greenwood   and   its  The history of Spain has been  a series of wars, plots and intrigues for the past 500 years.  In the third century, B. C,  Hamilcar Barca, the great Carthaginian general, after whom  Barcelona was named, conquered  Spain. A century later the Romans drove out the Carthaginians, but it took them 200 years to  subdue all the native bribes. Then  for several hundred years Spain  was  the  granary  of the Roman  THREE CHEERS  AND THEN SOME  ABSOLUTE  SECURITY  empire, and filled the treasury of  neighborhood.

This was an age of general  prosperity. Next barbarian tribes  desolated the peninsula, and after  the downfall of Rome it was conquered by the Visigoths.    About  400, A.   D., some  three hundred  ���years  later,   the  Saiaceas ruled  Spain, after a series of wars, and  after   them   the   Franks       The  Moors were the next invaders, and  until   1031   were   the   dominant  power.    As   is   the  case   todav,  their dominion was the  result of  a   futile   effort   on   the   part  of  Spain   to rule   Morocco.    It was  during the Arab Moorish   regime  that several separate states sprung  up, and the last  of these,   Granada, which rose to great brilliance  under the Moors, was captured by  the armies of Ferdinand and Isabella in 1492.    The Moors have  never relinquished   the   hope  of  recovering Spain.  Spain dominated the world  under Ferdinand and Isabella and  reached out and secured vast colonies in America. This was  Spain's brightest era. The next  ruler, Philip II, essayed to conquer England, and the destruction  of his Armada was the downfall  of Spain's naval supremacy.  Next came the war of the Spanish succession, and Spain was  only saved as a separate kingdom  by the powers who stopped the  French invasion. Steadily Spain  has declined in power. Though  Napoleon's brother once sat on  the Spanish throne, it was the  stubborn resistance to French  dominition that showed that Napoleon was not invincible and  ultimately led to Waterloo.  In 1859 Spain  fought  Morocco  with indifferent success,  and  ten  years later Spain was a republic.  After another decade  the  father  of the present king came to  the  throne and  for  the   time being  blasted the hopes of the Carlists.  The present reign has not been  a happy one for Spam.    The war  with the United States  stripped  her  ot  her  few  remaining possessions,   and   now  a disastrous  war with Morocco, civil war and  wild  anarchy  at  home are completing the decline of the last of  the   great  Latin   powers.    With  the  pretender,   Don  Jaime,   proclaiming his claim to the Spanish  throne,    mutiny    in    her    army  abroad,   aud   domestic    anarchy  rampant,   bloodshed   and    arson  rife, the intervention of  the powers alone can save  Spain   from a  reign of terror  unequaled   in the  history of the world.  The complimentary banquet  tendered to Dr. J. E. Spankie on  Saturday night was a scene of exceptional enthusiasm and brilliancy, and was attended by 50  representative citizens of Greenwood, Midway, Boundary Falls  and Eholt.  At 9 o'clock, the guest of the  evening, accompanied by Judge  J. R. Brown, the chairman of the  evening, took his seat. Rousing  cheers and "He's a Jolly Good  Fellow," started the ball rolling.  Never in the history of home hospitality was such a table spread  in the Hotel Imperial.  After the wants of the inner  man had been satisfied, the chairman proposed "The King God  Bless Him," and the loyalty of  those present was attested by the  united singing of the national  anthem with highland honors.  The toast list was long and ably  carried out, and the speakers vied  with each other iu their appreciation of the doctor and his good  services to Greenwood and the  district. Songs, recitations, sallies of wit and wisdom, were the  order ot the evening, want of  space alone prevents our presenting them in full.  In the wee small hours, "Auld  Lang Syne " and " God Save the  King," brought au exceptionally  enjoyable evening to a close.  During the evening the doctor  was presented with an address  signed by those present, and letters were read from several who  were unable to attend.  In his own carriage, and with  the banqueters as motive power,  the doctor was escorted home  with three cheers, and then some,  and then some more.  While the party press accuses the  Liberal government of extravagance  and worse, places a false interpretation  upon the resignation of Mr. Lums-  den, chief engineer to the Transcontinental Commission, unjustly represents Mr. Fielding as adding heavily  to the public debt, nothing is said of  the system of government���old age  annuities.  This is neither a party nor a political question, excepting one may truly  say it is a boon conferred upon all the  people by the Liberal government. It  is a subject of such wide-spread interest that every community will be interested to know something about it.  Sir Richard Cartwright, minister of  trade and commerce, was primarily  responsible for the measure known as  the Annuities Act, 1908. This act  solves the problem of securing comfort and happiness in old age at a very  trivial cost, and everyone is eligible to  share in the advantages which it otters.  Many men have been ruined, or have  seen their hard-earned savings disappear through improvident investment  or unwise speculation. Others have  wasted their savings in many ways.  By the purchase of an annuity such  experiences are impossible.  This annuity scheme of the government should appeal with special  force to the wage earner and man of  small means. Many people of limited resources find difficulty in securing an investment upon good security. The security in this case is the  Dominion government with its vast  resources.

Guarding the approach to that arid  and barren ocean of driven sand, the  Libyan desert, and almost beneath tlie  shadow   of   the    mightiest   structure  ever erected by man upon   this earth,  stands that strange wonder of thc ancient world, the Great Sphinx.    And  well might those superstitious and deluded   worshippers   of crocodiles and  mummied cats,  of Osiris and  Horns  and Ptah, regard the impassive  monster with awe and with the profound  est reverence; well might   they   look  upon it as endowed with   tremendous  authority and power, and with the absolute   control   over   their   destinies,  both in this life and in the realms beyond the tomb.     For to   us   even, of  this more intelligent age, emancipated  from those insensate   delusions which  held those mighty ancients   in an iron  grip and sunk them down in   abysmal  and benighted ignorance, it is a thrilling experience to stand   at   sunset before the towering,   majestic   form of  the stupendous figure.    Now, starting  as it were into life as the  golden   rays  merge into carmine, and the passionless vissage is gradually   mantled with  a   suffused   ever   deepening blush   as  though the   life-blood   were   coursing  through   it;   now,   as   the  great   red  luminary sinks lower  and   lower, the  roseate   hue   of  vitality   fading   away  into   a   sullen   and   lurid,   empurpled  lividity;   and   now,   as the   gloaming  advances and the stars, of heaven one  by one shine forth, the   massive   features   of   the   image   darkening   ever  blacker and   deeper,   until   the  rising  moon again lekmdles on   it a ghostly  and unearthly pallor.  Hoary   with  age a thousand   years  before Menephtah's  generals,   vainly  pursuing   the Israelite  host,   perished  ignominiously   in   the   Red   Sea,  tlie  blear,   stony   eyes of this   sculptured  monster of the past���a huge and stupendously colossal   man-headed   lion,  its pedestal a rock-hewn temple ���have  looked out with the same   impenetrable, visionless gaze upon some of the  greatest events of this world's history;  the triumphant progresses of the great  Rameses; the headlong Might of Pha-  roah Necho,   driven   back  by the invincible   forces   of Nebuchadnezzar;  the return of Shihak with his   plunder  from   the   Holy   City,   Jerusalem; or  the victorious triumph of that   mighty.  ruler  of a  world-empire,   Alexander  the Great.

Like every habit, the  saving habit grows. Once the  person puts by in the savings  bank a small amount every pay  day it becomes a habit, and with  the incentive offered by the government it will be a matter of  pride to continue the same, and  when old age comes creeping over  us what a blessing the annuity  will be to those of us who have  not acquired a fortune.

Does thi; entitle Greenwood to  make i 111 mediate application to  tlie superintendent of education?  There is no necessity to dwell  on the advantages of having such  an excellent institution located in  our midst. The advantages are  obvious. Parents who are loathe  to part with their boys and girls,  after they have, left the public  school, could keep them at home,  and the town is tlie loser when its  young people spend the greater  part of the year away. Then,  again, a" High School is an additional attraction lo families aad  home makers, aud an ornament  to any town where such an institution exists. There are no disadvantages.  But while we have an excellent  beginning this year, with twelve  scholars to form the. nucleus, does  the average school attendance at  present in the six schools in the  district, aud the population of the  town and district, warrant a high  school being established today?  If it does, let us have one at once,  if we can procure it Places with  a far greater school population,  and consequently a greater number of entrance candidates have  had to wait a long tune before  their applications were granted,  and have experienced considerable  trouble to maintain thc requisite  number of scholars lo keep the  high school up to standard requirements. Of course no injury  can accrue from our making application, but at the present juncture would it not be better to go  easv and apply first for permission for the principal of the public school to take the work of the  first year in high school, in conjunction with that of the entrance  class, until such time as we can  boast of a larger school attendance in the surrounding district,  and consequently a larger field  from which to draw material for  the High School, and assure ourselves of the permanancy of that  most excellent adjunct to the attractions of tbe Boundary.

The British   plan  encourages pauperism   by providing pensions for the improvident,  who  spend   their  wages without  thought   of    the   morrow.    The  Canadian plan educates the  boys  and   girls  of Canada   to  lay   by  even as small a  sum   as  25 cents  weekly, so that when  they  reach  the age of 50 to fiO years they are  assured of an  annuity   that will  at least  make   thein   independent  of charity   from their   friends or  neighbors.

an Intuitive knowledge gained in a
'slsaiflcant formative period. He saw
mora clearly than the townfoik who
■to a general way had known Hugh
Stires all their lives. Week by weel:
.Harry bad Been him regain lost
ground In bis father's esteem. Day.
by day he had seen him making stndl*
eas appeal to all that was romantic in
Jtawlca, climbing to the favor of each
on the ladder of the other's regard.
Hugh was naturally a poseur, with a
keen sense of effect He could be
brilliant at will, could play a little on
piano, banjo and violin, could sing a J
little and had himself well iu hand.
And, feeling the unconscious chord of
romance vibrate to his "touch, be had
played upon It with no unskillful fingers.
Jessica was comparatively tree from
that coquetry by means of wbicb a woman's Instinct experiments ln emotion.
Although she bad been artist enough
before tbe cloistered years of ber blindness to know that she was comely, she
bad never employed that beauty tn tbe
ordinary blandishments of girlish fascination. But steadily and unconsciously Bhe bad turned In her darkness
more and more to tbe bright and tender air wrth which Hugh clothed all
their intercourse. Her blindness bad
been of too short duration to have developed that fine sense-perception with
which nature seeks to supplement the
darkened vision. The ineradicable
marks which ill governed living bad
set in Hugh's face, tbe self Indulgence
and egotism, she could not see. She
mistook Impulse for instinct She read
him by the untrustworthy light of a
colorful imagination.   She deemed bim
He began lo pUiy
high spirited and debonair, a Prince
Charming, whose prideful rebellion had
been atoned for by a touching and
manly surrender.
All thia Harry had watched with a
painful sense of impotence, and this
feeling was upon bim today as he
stared out from tbe study toward the
white porch glistening in tbe sun.
At length, with a little gesture expressive at once of helplessness and
puzele, he turned from the window,
took bis violin and began to play. He
began a barcarole, but the music wandered away through insensible variations Into a moving minor, a composition of his own.
It broke off suddenly at a dog's fierce
snarl from the yard and the rattle of a
thrown pebble. Immediately a knock
came at the door, and a man entered.
"Don't stop," said the new comer.
"I've dropped in for only a minute.
Thafs an HI tempered little brute of
yours. If I were you I'd get rid of
him."
Harry Sanderson laid tbe violin carefully In its case and shut the lid before
he answered. "Rummy is Impulsive,"
he said dryly. "How is your father today, Hugh?"
The other tapped tbe toe of his shining patent leather with his cane as be
said with a look of ill humor:
"About as well as usual He's planning now to put me In business and expects me to become a staid pillar of
society—'like Sanderson,' as - he BayB
forty times a week. How do you do
it, Harry? There-isn't an old lady in
town wbo taluks ber parlor carpet half
good enough for you to walk on. You're
only a month older than I am, yet you
can wind the whole vestry and tbe
bishop to boot around your finger."
"I wasn't aware of the idolatry."
Harry laughed a little—a distant laugh.
"Ion are observant, Hugh."
"Oh, anybody can see it I'd like to
know bow you do it It was always
so with you, even at college. You
cootd do pretty much as you liked and
yet be popular too. Why, there was
never a jamboree complete without you
and your violin at the head of the table."
"That is a long time ago," said
Harry.
"More than four years.   Four years
■ and a-month tomorrow, since that last
evening of college.    Yet I Imagine it
will be longer before we forget it"
Harry did not speak. An odd confusion blurred his vision. Perhaps to
cover this, he crossed tbe room to a
small private safe which stood open in
tbe corner, in which'he kept his tithes
and his charities. When Hugh, shrugging his Bhoulders as If to dismiss the
unwelcome picture he bad painted,
turned again, Harry was putting into
It some papers from his pocket Hugh
saw €he action. His eyes fastened on
the safe avidly.
"I say," he said after a moment's
pause as Harry made to shut its door,
"can you loan me another fifty? I'm
flat on my uppers again, and the old
man has been tight as nails with me
since I came back. I'm sure to be
able to return it with the rest In a
week or two."
Harry stretched his hand again toward the safe, then drew It back*, with
compressed lips. He had met Hugh
with persistent courtesy, and the other
bad found him sufficiently obliging
with loans. Hugh's lowered gaze saw
the arrested movement, and his cheek
flushed.
"Oh, if if s Inconvenient I won't trouble you for the accommodation," he
said.   "I dare say I can raise it"
The attempt at nonchalance cost him
a palpable effort Comparatively small
as the amount was, he needed it Ho
was in sore straits.
"It isn't that it Is inconvenient,
Hugh," said Harry. "If s that I can't
approve your manner of living latel*
and—I don't know where the fifty in
going."
The mark on Hugh's brow reddeasd.

and drink a little when I'm dry? I've
got to have a bit of amusement once in
awhile between prayers. You liked It
yourself well enough before you discovered a sudden talent for preaching!"
"Some men bide tbeir talents under a
napkin," said Harry. "You drown
yours—ln a bottle. You bave been
steadily going downhill. You are deceiving your father—and others—with
a pretended reform wblcb isn't skin
deep. Vou have made'them believe you
are living straight when you are ca- j

company when you have taken up wltb
a besotted and discredited gambler!"
"1 suppose you mean Dr. Moreau,"
returned Hugh. "There are plenty of
people In town who are worse than be
Is."
"He Is a quack—dropped from the
hospital staff for addiction to drugs
and expelled from bis club for cheat

"He's down and out" said Hugh
sullenly, "and any cur- can bite him

ing to give him the cold shoulder because everybody else does. I never

that sort!"
"You .never had a friend, Hugh,"
said Harry steadily. "You never really loved anybody or anything but
yourself. You are utterly selfish. You
are deliberately lying every hour you
live to those wbo love you. You are
playing a part—for your own ends!
You were only a good Imitation of a
good fellow at "college. You are a
poor imitation of a man of honor
now."
Hugh rose to bis feet as be answered hotly: "And what are you, I'd like
to know? Just boc.iuse 1 take my
pleasure as I plei*?'* while you choose
to make a stained s.ass cherub of
yourself, is no reason why I'm not
just as good as youl 1 knew "you
well enough before you set up for such
a pattern. You didn't go in much then,
for a theological diet Pshaw!" be
went on, snapping his fingers toward
tbe well stocked bookshelves. "I wonder how much of all that you really bellevel I imagine your friends
don't call you 'Satan' now?"
"No," returned Harry quietly, "they
don't call me 'Satan' now."
He went back to the safe.
The movement set Hugh instantly
to regretting bis hasty tongue. If be
bad only assumed penitence instead
of flying into a passion' be might have
had the money be wanted just as well
as not.
"There's no sense in us two quarreling," he said hastily. "We've been
friends a long time. I'm sure I didn't
intend to when I came ln. I suppose
you're right about some things, and
probably dropping Moreau wouldn't
hurt me any. I'm sorry I said all I
did. Only—the money seemed such a
little thing, and I-I needed it"
Harry stood an instant wltb bis
hand on tbe knob; then instead of closing tbe door he drew out a little drawer. He lifted a packet of crisp yeUow
backs and slowly counted out $100.
"I'm trying to believe you mean what
you say, Hugh." he said.
Hugh's fingers closed eagerly over
the crackling notes. "Now, tbafs
white of you after everything I said.
You're a good fellow, Harry, after all,
and I'lL always say so." He pocketed
tbe money with au air of relief and
picked up bis bat and cane.   .   •
Just then from the dusty street came
tbe sound of carriage wheels and the
click of tbe gate latch.
"Its Bishop Ludlow," he said, glancing through the window. "He's coming in.- I think I'll slip out the side
way. Thanks for tbe loan, and—I'll
think over what you've said."
Avoiding the bishop, Hugb stepped
toward the gate. Tbe money was in
his pocket. Well, one of these days
he would not have to grovel for a paltry $50. He would be his own master and could afford to let Harry Sanderson aud everybody else think what
they liked.
"So I'm playing a part, am I!" he
said to himself. "Why should your
holiness trouble yourself over it if I
am? Not because you're so careful of
the governor's feelings, not by a long
shot! It's because you choose to think
Jessica Holme is too good for me.
That's where the shoe pinches. Perhaps you'd like to play at tbat game
yourself, eh?'
He walked jauntily up tbe street—
toward the door with the little barred
window.
"The old man is fond of her. He
thinks I mean to settle down and let
tbe moss grow over my ears, and he'll
do the proper thing. It'll be a good
way to put my bead above water and
keep it there. It must be soon,
though."
sated tor an Instant a whisper of early
prodigalities and wUdnesses .which he
had beard.
"I looked ln to tell you a bit of
news," said the bishop. "I've just come
from David Stires. He bas a letter
from Van Lennap, the great eye surgeon of Vienna. He disagrees with tbe
rest of them. Thinks Jessica's case
may not be hopeless."
Tbe cloud that Hugh's call bad left
on Harry's countenance lifted.
"Thank God!" he said. "Will she go
to himr
Tbe bishop looked at bim curiously,
for tbe exclamation seemed to bold
more than a conventional relief.
"He is to be ln America next month.

Harry's face was turned away, or tbe
bishop would bave seen It suddenly
startled. "To make a matcb of it!" To
hide tbe flush he felt staining bis
cheek Harry bent to close tbe safe. A
something tbat bad darkled iu some
obscure depth of his being whose existence he bad not guessed was throbbing
now to a pulnful resentment Jessica
was to marry Hughl
"A handsome fellow—Hugh!" said
the bishop. "He seems to "have returned with a new heart—a brand plucked
from the burning. You bad tbe same
alma mater, I think you told me. Your
influence bas clone tbe boy good, Sanderson!" He laid bis hand kindly on
the other's shoulder. "The fact that
you were in college together makes
him look up to you—as the whole parish does," he added.
Harry was setting tbe combination
and did not answer. But through the
turmoil in his brain a satiric voice
kept repeating:
"No,   they   don't   call   me   'Satan
now!"
-   •        *••->»•
The white house ln tbe aspens was
ln gala attire. Flowers—great banks
of bloom—were massed in tbe hall,
along the stairway and in tbe window
Beats, and wreaths of delicate fern
trembled on the prim bung chandeliers.
Over all breathed the sweet fragrance
of jasmine. Musicians sat behind a
screen of palms in a corridor, and a
long scarlet carpet strip ran down the
front steps to tbe driveway, up which
passed bravely dressed folk, arriving
iu carriages and on foot, to witness
the completion of a much booted romance.
For a fortnight this afternoon's
event had beeu tbe chat of tbe town,
for David Stires, wbo today retired
from active business, was its magnate,
the owner of its finest single estate
and of its most important bank. From
bis scapegrace boyhood Hugb Stires
had made himself the subject of uncomfortable discussion. His sudden
disappearance after the rumored quarrel with his father and the advent of
Jessica Holme bad furnished the community sufficient material for gossip.
Tbe wedding had capped this gossip
with an appropriate climax. Tongues
had wagged over Its pros and cons,
for Hugh's past had induced a wholesome skepticism of his future.
There was an additional element of
romance, too, in tbe situation, tor Jessica, who had never yet seen her lover,
would see her husband. Tbe great
surgeon on whose prognostication she
had built so much had arrived and
had operated. Tbe experiment had
been completely successful, and Jessica's hope of vision had become a sure
and certain promise.
The operation over, there had remained many days before tbe bandages
could be removed—before Jessica could
be given her first glimpse of the world
for nearly three years. Hugh bad
urged against delay. If be bad stringent reasons of his own be was silent
concerning them. Aad Jessica, steeped in tbe delicious wonder of new and
Inchoate sensations, had yielded.
So it had come about that the wedding was to be on this hot August afternoon, although it would be yet some
time before tbe eye bandages might
be laid aside save in a darkened room.
In ber girlish, passionate ideality Jessica had offered a sacrifice to ber sentiment She bad promised herself that
the first form her new sight should behold should be not her lover, but her
husband. The idea pleased her sense
of romance.
It was a sweltering afternoon, and
ln the wide east parlor limp handkerchiefs and energetic fans fought vainly against the intolerable heat There,
as the clock struck 6, a hundred pairs
of eyes galloped. between two centers
of Interest—tbe door at which the bride
would enter and the raised platform at
the other end of the room where,
prayer book ln hand, in his wide robes
and flowing sleeves, Harry Sanderson
had just taken his stand. Perhaps
more looked at, Harry than at the
door.
He seemed bis usual magnetic sejf
as be stood there, backed by the flowers, his waving brown hair unsmooth-
ed, tbe ruby ring glowing dull red
against the dark leather of the book he
held. But Harry Sanderson was far
from feeling tbe grave, alien figure he
appeared. In the past weeks he had
waged a silent warfare with himself,
bitter because repressed. The strange
new thing that bad sprung up in him
he had trampled mercilessly under.
From the thought tbat he loved the
promised wife of another a quick, fastidious sense in him recoiled abashed.

Newfoundland is a land of surprises. Mr, Walter Monroe is
resident secretary of the Newfoundland Oil Development Co.,
Ltd. Their oil wells are situated
at Parsons Pond, on the Newfoundland coast, and have been
examined by an English and
American expert. On their most
favorable report, both'as to the
quantity and quality of the oil,
London financiers have taken hold
of the business and put up a large
capital to work the oil wells. .
A party of prospectors has left
Prince Albert on a six months'
trip to the country lying between
Isle la Crosse and Athabasca lake.
They have been sent out by the
Lands branch of the Canadian
Department of the Interior, and
will work their way across lo
Fort McMurray by water, and return by dog trains. The object
of the expedition ip. to discover
definitely what coal deposits are
in the north, and to find further
outcrops which the Indians report to have found from time lo
time. 	
The big Monarch lead mine at
Field, 1J. C, which has been under bond to the Vancouver Mining & Smelting Company, Limited, has been bought by a syndicate of mining men representing
both eastern and western capital,
and the work of developing the
mine on an entirely new basis will
be started at once, and a carload
of new machinery is being shipped to Field. Thc mine has been
worked in the past from a surface
level at a point about 700 feet
above the C. P. R. tracks. It is
estimated that at. least 10,000
tons of lead are in sight, while it
is difficult to place a limit on the
extent of the mineral in the
mountain. Recent examinations
have convinced the new owners
that the ore body is very much
greater than was at first estimated. Samples taken from all
parts ot the property average in
value over $25 per ton.

Taft  visits Seattle the latter part of  September, to attend the Alaska-  Yukon-Paci fie exposition, it is  predicted that the largest gathering ever known on the Pacific  coast will congregate. Special  arrangements are already under  way to provide special entertainment for not only the president,  but the crowds also. Three previous presidents have visited Seattle while in office���Hayes, Harrison and'Roosevelt. Each visit  was a memorable occasion. The  records for crowds established on  these visits are certain to be shattered when "Big Bill" comes,  not that he is a stranger to Seattle and the Northwest, but because he is so well known and so  well liked here. Many prospective visitors will put off their com-  iug until thc visit of the president, when they "will kill two  birds with one stone." The president will leave the cast September 15th, stopping en route for  brief visits in Denver, Salt Lake  and Spokane. Owing to Mrs  Taft's poor health, he will not  be able .to make the contemplated  trip to Alaska this year.  An official census of Calgary  has just been issued, and the population is shown by it to be 29,265,  Two years ago a similiar census  showed 21,000. The eucrease is  regarded as verv satisfactory,  especially iu view of the accom-  paniug'increase in general prosperity aud thc flourishing condition of all local business enterprises. Calgary's growth in population is not only rapid but along  the best possible lines.  After having made a journey  from Tailcm Bend to Lonton on  the Murchisou river, the crown  lands commissioner of South Australia reports the "discovery" of  1,000,000 acres of good agricul  tural land ou which 700 farmers  could be settled if the country  were opened up by a light railway. Another party reports having found 2,000,000 acres in the  northern portion of Eyre's peninsula.
