DELIGHTFUL  OPERA SINGERS  Greenwood music lovers were  well rewarded for their attendance on Monday night at the  Auditorium when the English  Grand Opera singers delighted  everyone present by their charming singing and acting. iSvery  item on the program pleased, and  the small but well balanced orchestra were excellent. Especially  charming was tht graceful playing of Miss Bessie Zeller, violin-  lste, her rendering of Dvorak's  Humoreske, stirred the entire  audience. With the very limited  space of this week's paper it is  impossible to give an account of  the entire program, but it is a  pity that when the management  hi*��s taken so much trouble to secure really good entertainments  for us this winter so few turn out  to show their appreciation, and  enjoy a really first-class program  by first-class singers aud players.  DENORO NEWS  GREENWOOD  BOARD OF TRADE  Mrs. P. W. Lover is on a visit  to her father at Seattle.  Mr. C. F. Stork, of Greenwood,  was a visitor in camp on Tuesday.  Stanley Smalley and family  left last week for Seattle, where  Mr. Smaller is opening up a real  estate business.  Messrs. McLean and Read, of  the Phoenix Miners' union, were  visitors in camp last Friday on  official busiuess connected with  the union.  Walter Auger and family, with  a carload of effects, arrived at  .Eholt last Monday from Saskatchewan. Mr. Auger has recently bought G. T. Scott's ranch,  for mixed farming.  Ten years ago Greenwood was  visited by two hundred prominent  business men of the larger cities  of British Columbia, as guests of  the C. P. R., and the local Board  of Trade did themselves*, proud.  They entertained the visitors royally at mine and smelter, at banquet and club. The address of  welcome alone was an advertisement of our resources. Hut today wha6 are we doing to encourage people to come here: to stay,  when they get here, or to invest  in our mountain mines o. valley  farms if they cannot remain themselves in our midst? Kow that  winter is here, it is a good time  to get ready to pull together for  Greenwood and district, and when  Spring comes be ready to welcome  the new arrivals the winter's advertising and work has brought in.  BENGOUGH  The noted cartoonist and entertainer, J. W, Bengough, kept  Wednesday night's audience at  the Auditorium in continual  laughter. His drawing was excellent, and his humorous yarns  and poems delightful. Capital  cartoons of R. Wilson, the well  known customs broker, J. McCreath, the popular head of the  Greenwood Liquor Co., and R. T.  Lowery, the famous editor of the  Ledge, caused considerable mirth  and the cartoons were later  bought in by admirers. As an  evening entertainer Mr. "Bengough  pleases all, and his farewell visit  to Greenwood was a distinct success.  A BITTER  CAMPAIGN  The whole of Great Britain is  rent with political strife. Two  great camps are warring against  each other, 'those who support  the action of the House of Lords  in refusing to pass the Budget,  and those who are in favor of the  Budget. While there are several  other minor issues before the  British public, such as tarriff reform versus free trade, these are  being pushed into the background  by the great issue, the Budget.  The general elections will take  place about the 10th of January,  and the nation will either have  to eudorse the action of the Lords,  which means a general curtailment of national defense expenditure, or part with the long-cherished hentitary right of the upper house; which means nothing  more or less than a political revolution.

A new skating rink, 50 feet by  100 feet is being constructed on  the flat opposite the mine office.  There are many good skaters at  the mine and a lively time is being looked forward to by all.  All lovers of the best in drama  will be delighted to hear that  F.W. McLaine, the popular manager of the Greenwood Auditorium, has secured an elaborate production of '*As You Like It," the  most delightful of all Shakespeare's comedies, for Wednesday  next. December 15. The company presenting "As You Like  It " is from the Walker theater,  in Winnipeg, and is composed  altnust entirely of English players.

TRAINS REACH  IKEDA MINE  The Consolidated Mining and  Smelting Co., of Trail, have purchased the Ikeda mine, Queen  Charlotte islands, for approximately $200,000.  The V., V. & E. line from  Hedley to Princeton has been  turned over from the construction  department to the operating department, since the governmeut  inspector of railways has accepted this portion of tbe line.  Regular trains will uow run to  Princeton. Work on the line to  the coast is under way. Chief  Engineer J. II. Kennedy has  transferred his headquarters to  Abbotsford, and L. M. Hale will  take charge of the new westward  construction.  A SECOND FORTUNE  Ross Thompson, the father of  Rossland, and at one time rated  as a Canadian millionaire, has acquired some rich copper properties at Yerington, Nevada, and  probably will retrieve his ill luck  of later years in the   n**ar future,  A pessimist is a person who  has lived with an optimist.

WINTER SPOFTS  to those who cannot get a skate  on at the curling rink. Then  winter supplies us with much  crystal snow, and the most glorious mode of locomotion���sleighing. Any moonlight or other  night sleighing can be made superbly enjoyable if the right companion be chosen, and this is a  sport especially adapted to the  bachelor, who is too busy to curl,  too ungraceful to skate, to show  he can handle a pair of large  greys and a pair of small hands  at the same time. For others, or  for a change, there is tobogan-  ing down the many hills���the  thrilling excitement of a moment followed by a laborious  dragging of the bobsleigh back  up the hill and one more sensational flight before it's time to go  home. No! winter is not slow,  and for those who do uot appreciate the outdoor sports a  warm corner near the fire, a pipe,  a glass, a book and a ** thou " can  always be found by those who  seek, by all but the bald, the  grey or the old���and they ought  to be out in the cold, and they  are.           CHRISTMAS GIVING  The Dr. Cook records have arrived at Copenhagen and will be  examined by the scientists at  once.    It is rumored that Sir Montagu  Allen is to succeed Lord Stratb-  c<*>tia as high commissioner for  Canada,  Paterson,   of Vic-  Thomas W  tori a, has been appointed to the  position of Lieutenant-Governor  of B. C.           Sergeant James Goss died at  Ashcroft, B. C, last week. He  fought through the Indian mutiny, in Central India, at Delhi  and Luchnow:  The master of E)libank is a firm  j believer in the art of judiciously  j sprinkling his speeches with good  stories. One such anecdote he  tells concerns a Highland farmer  who once handed a parcel in at a  small Scottish railway office.  ''Do you think," he asked the  man in charge, "tbat it's well  enough tied to trust going in the  van?" '-Weel, I'll see," answered the porter, dropping it  with a crash. "It'll get that  here, an' it'll get tbat at the junction,"  giving  it   another   bang,  "an'  it'll  get  tbat at  Dundee,"  . , , The peculiar properties of Chamber  banging  it so  furiously that the!laln>a CoU(jh   Reme(,y>   hatfe been  the   thoroughly teited duriug cpid-Miiios ot  influenza, and  when it was   taken   in  Government reports show that  Alaska was second as a gold producer in 1908, atnoug- the states  and territories of the United-  States. It yielded yellow me*al  valued at $19,858,800, or two-and-  a-half times as much as was paid  for the district in the sixties.  Colorado led Alaska only by two  millions, and the indications are,  that with the opening of the new  camps just reported, in- another  year or two Alaska will be the  first in the gold producing localities of the United States.  Welcome Words to Women  contents   scattered   all  over  floor,    "If   it be  going further  than   Dundee,"   be remarked   at  laHt, "it'll nae do at all."  Women who suffer with disorders peculiar to their  sex should write to Dr. Pierce and receive free the  advice of a physician of over 40 years' experience  ���a skilled and successful specialist in the diseases  of women. Every letter of this sort has the most  careful consideration and is regarded as sacredly  confidential. Many sensitively modest women write  fully to Dr. Pierce what they would shrink from  telling to their local physician. The local physician  is pretty sure to say that he cannot do anything  without "an examination." Dr. Pierce holds that  these distasteful examinations are generally needless,   and   that   no woman,   except  in  rare  cases,  should   submit  Dr. Pierce's treatment will cure you right in "the privacy of  your own home. His "Favorite Prescription" has <H��red  hundreds  of  thousands, some of them  the worst of  ��.-k:,cs.  It is the only medicine of its kind that is die product of a rc-Jt-Iu'-'-.  physician.

Pierce, President, Buffalo, N. Y.,���take the advice rectivv.;      ���  ii.: --v-Ty  '.'Viiv;. :i-  -.i:i"a  The British Isles are now in  the the throes of a general election, and a bitter fight is being  waged. The House of Lords is  likely to get the worst of the  deal in any event.  Diplomatic relations between  thftUuiled States and Nicaragua  have been severed. The insurgents in the petty war now obtaining in the small Central  American republic have beeu recognized by Uncle Sam.  Greenwood grumblers, who find  fault with anything and everything when lhe first cold snap  freezes lip tbe water pipes, breaks  the milk bottles, and reddens the  noses, big and little, at least have  one or two things to be thankful  for in the winter time. In the  good old summer time there is  little or nothing to do, outside of  tennis, and afternoon out-of-door  bridge. We are not blessed with  a lake to boat on or swim in, and  the modern aeroplane has not yet  reached our summer valleys; but  when tbe winters frosty bite  pierces our ears and playfully  draws a lace-like veil over our  parlor windows there is one solace���curling. The Greenwood  rink resounds with laugh ter every  winter's night and could many a  tale unfold, while the semi-annual  collection of dear dead soldiers  testifies to the amount of spirit  that is put into the game. Besides this roaring sport we have a  skating rink, where every evening the youth and beauty of the  burg parade in pairs, hand in  band, skating gracefully, mostly  on tbeir feet, a most inspiring  sight and one to be recommended  Here's still another Christmas  drawing near, and almost all of  us are planning some small token  to be given with our real regards  to someone we really do like. But  there cur giving should end.  When we hear people say: "I  suppose I must send So and So  something for Christmas this  year, he or she will be sure to  send me something," we hear  what is the mean side of all this  giving and taking. And it is a  mean side. The onlv gifts that  count at all are the ones that  stand as symbolic, that are the  outward and visible signs of the  real Christmas feeling, the tokens  of regard and brotherly love and  honest friendship, that all-necessary spice of life that makes  every hazard and worry well  worth while.  Give and give freely to those  you like, and not for duty sake,  if you want to carry out the true  Christmas spirit. Duty calls,  duty dances, and duty gifts are  all in the same class���unnecessary and most tiresome. Then,  when you receive by mail on December 25, a small parcel of flowers, a book or some simple present, something made for you,  something thought out for you,  you will know it means good will  for you and to you for this Christmas, the next and all the rest of  them; and your gifts should carry  the same message and be not a  duty presentation, but a pledge  that a bit of yonr heart accompanies each one.  The Domiuion government has  announced the personnel of the  British Columbia Court of Appeals as follows: J. A. Macdonald, chief justice; Mr. Justice  Martin, of the Supreme Court;  Mr. Justice Irving, of the Supreme Court; W. A. Galiiher. To  fill the vacancies created by the  elevation of the two judges, P. B.  Gregory, of Victoria, aud Dennis  Murphy, of Ashcroft, are appointed to the Supreme Couit  bench. ^^  VANCOUVER PROSPERITY  Magnificent Offices for Vancouver  Corporation.  The Dominion Stock and Bond  Corporation, of Vancouver, is now  installed in the new Winch building;.  Vancouver's commercial progress  is aptly illustrated by the growth and  prosperity of her financial institutions.  Changes are being made on every  hand, and oflice accommodation that  was more than adequate a year ago,  is now disgarded as being insufficient  to handle the volume of business  transacted. Among those recently  installed in new quarters is the Dominion Stock and Bond Corporation,  Vancouver, Ltd., whose premises  rank with the finest in Western Canada.  These new offices are exceptionally  spacious, and impress the visitor at  once with a sense* of architectural  substantiality and munificence; the  high ceilings make for an abundance  of light and air; thc floors of polished  hardwood; the counters and interior  fittings of massive quartered oak, and  the electric fixtures of polished brass  richly designed and carefully executed.  The location is most central, being in  the recently completed Winch building, directly next doorto Vancouver's  new postofiice, on Hastings street.  The corporation carries on a large  general real estate, financial and insurance business. They buy and sell  realty of all kinds, purchase agreements of sale, make loans, collect  rents, and engage in company promotion. They have extensive connections in the old country. The office  staff is composed of capable and reliable men whose thorough knowledge  of the intricate details of real estate,  financial and insurance business qualifies them to serve clients advantageously and thoroughly.  It is the purpose of the Dominion  Stock and Bond Corporation, of Vancouver, Ltd., to erect a modern ten-  story brick and stone office building,  in a central location, on Hastings  street, and arrangements are being  made to rush the work to completion.  A number of representative business  and financial men are interested in  this enterprise, which will add another  imposing structure to Vancover's rapidly growing list of sky scrapers.  The greatest danger from influenza  is of its resulting in pueumonia. This  can be obviated by using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, as it not only  cures influenza, but counteracts auy  tendency of the disease to pneumonia.  Sold by all Druggists & Dealers.

Could not Play!  How Zam Buk Brought Relief  Mr. Julius Glacier of Denbigh, Ont.,  says: I was so tortured by piles that 1  could not get ease whether lying down,  sitting, or standing. The ailment  robbed me of strength, of appetite, and  of all desire to live! I had suffered so  long and so acutely that I cam! to  thick there was no ease forme, but one  day I found that I was wrong!  "I was told that Zam-Buk cured  piles, and that this balm was altogether different to ordinary ointments,  scores of which I have proved useless  for so bad a case as mine was. I got  a supply of Zam-Buk, and began to use  it regularily,  "Without going into necessary details in a few weeks I found myself  cured. 1 owe my cure to Zam Buk entirely, and I trust my experience will  be the means of leading other sufferers  to try this great herbal balm."  Nothing need be added to this plain  powerful testimony save one question  ���if you suffer like Mr. Glacier didi  why not get relief from the same  source as he did?  Zam-Buk���aa he truly says���is  "something different', to the ordinary  oinl ments. and salves. It is a powerful  combination of healing and soothing  herbal essences. No mineral astringents or poisons;  no impure animal  fats.  It is a powerful cure for inflamed  areas-.aa in piles) erysipelas, eczema,  ulcers, sores, abscesses, cold cracks,  chapped hands, hums, cuts scalp sores,  and ull skin injuries and diseases. It  is the most suitable balm for children's rashes. All Druggists and  Stores at &0z. box or post free from  Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, for price.

Whatever Inner  hart this might betoken, he must hide  lt the sooner to leave the hospital,  where each hour brought -nearer the Inevitable disclosure.  He' thanked fortune now for tho  chapel game. Pew enough ln Anlston  would care to see the unfrocked, disgraced rector of St James'. He did not  know that the secret was Bishop Ludlow's own until the hour when he  opened his eyes after a fitful sleep  upon the latter's face.  The bishop was the first visitor, and  ll wns his lirst visit, for he had been  ln a distant city at the time of the Are.  Waiting the waking, he had been mys-  tiflod ut the change a few months had  wrought in the countenance of the man  \ whose disappearance bad cost him so  many sleepless hours. The months of  indulgence and rich living ���on the  money, he had won from Harry���had  \ taken u\yny Hugh's slightness, and hia  % fuller cheeks were now of the contour  of Harry's own. But the bishop dls-  \ tlnguished new lines in the face on the  pillow, an * expression unfamiliar and  puzzling. The firmness and strength  were gone, and ln their place was a  haunting something that gave him a  flitting suggestion of the discarded that  he could not shake off.  Waking, the unexpected sight of the  bishop startled Hugh. To the good  man's pain he had turned his face  away.  "My dear boy," the bishop had said,  "they tell me you are stronger and better.   I thank God for it!"  He spoke gently and with deep feeling. How could he tell to what extent he himself, in mistaken severity,  had been responsible for that unaccustomed look? When Hugh did not answer tbe bishop misconstrued the silence. He leaned over the bed. The  big cool hand touched the fevered one  .1 on the white coverlid, where the ruby  ring glowed, a coal ln snow.  - "Harry," he said, "you have suffered  ���you are suffering now. But think of  me only as your friend. I ask no  questions. We are going to begin  where we left off."  "I would like to do that," said Hugh,  "to begin again. But the chapel la  gone."  "Never mind that," said the bishop  cheerfully. "You are only to get well.  We are going to rebuild soon, and we  r-  "We are going to begin where we tyt off.*  want your judgment on the plans. Anlston is hanging ou your condition,  Harry," be went on. "There's a small  cartload of visiting cards downstairs  for you. But i imagine you haven't  begun to receive yet, eh?"  "I���I've seen nobody." Hugh spoke  hurriedly and hoarsely. "Tell the doe-  tor to let no one come���no one but  you.   i���I'm not up to it"  "Why, of course not" said the bishop quickly. ' "You need quiet and the  people can wait"  The bishop chatted awhile of the parish, Hugh replying only when he must;  and went away heartened. Before be  left Hugh saw his way to hasten his  own going. On the next visit the seed  was dropped ln the bishop's mind so  cleverly that he thought tbe idea his  own. That day he said to the surgeon ln charge:  "He is gaining so rapidly I have been  wondering if he couldn't be taken  away where the climate will benefit  him.   Will he be able to travel Boon7"  "I think so," answered the surgeon.  "We suspected Internal injury at first-,  but-1 imagine the worst he has to fear  is the disfigurement Mountain or sea  air would do him good," he added reflectively. "What he will need is tonlo  and building up."  The bishop had revolved this ln his  mind. He knew a place on the coast;  tucked away ln the cypresses, which  would be admirable for convalescence.  He could arrange a special car, and be  [himself could make the journey with  He proposed this to the surgeon  alpd witb his approval put his plan ln  tion. In two days more Hugh found  hlt$ going fully settled.  he idea admirably flttad his necessity^ Tbe spot the bishop had selected  wass'quiet and retired and, more, was  near >jthe port at which he could most  readlljt; take ship for South America.  Only oiie rellectlon made him shiver���  the roifvfe lay through the town of  Smoky Mountain. Yet who would  dream or-, looking for a fugitive from  the law ln jihe secluded car that carried  a sick math? The risk would be small  enough, and it was the one way open.  On the jlast afternoon before the departure Hugh asked for'the clothes he  had worn when he was brought to the  hospital, found the gold pieces he had  snatched, in the burning chapel and  tied them ia a handkerchief about his  neck. They would suffice to buy his  sea passage. The one red counter he  had kept���it was from henceforth to be  a reminder of the good resolutions he  had made so long ago���he slipped into  a pocket of the clothes he was to wear  away, a suit of loose, comfortable  tweed.  Waiting restlessly for the hour ef  his going, Hugh asked for the newspapers. Since the flrst he had had  them redd to him each day, listening;  fearfully for the hue and cry. Bnt  today the surgeon put his request  aside.  "After you are there-" b�� said, 'If  Bishop Ludlow will let you. Not .new.  I oil are almost out of my dutchers, JUid  I must tyrannize while I caa."  A. quick look passed from htm ta Ma  assistant as he spoke, for tne newsj*'  pers that afternoon had wota-ataaiamma)  ^fldlines^ypif;  sordid   agatta  at  mining town across tbe rang** l��ad little Interest for Anlston, but tbe names  of Stires and Moreau on tbe clicking  wire had waked it thus late -to the sensation. The professional caution of tbe  tinker of human bodies wished, however, that no excitement should be  added to the unavoidable fatigue of Inpatient's departure.  This fatigue was near to spelling defeat after all, for tbe exertion brought  again tbe dreadful slabbing pain, and  this time lt carried Hugh into a region where feeling ceased, consciousness passed and from which bo struggled back finally to find tbe surgeon  bending anxiously over bim.  "I don't like that sinking spell," the  latter confided to his assistant un hour  later ns they stood looking through the  window after tbe recoiling carriage.  "It was too pronounced. Vet bo has  complained of no pain. He will be In  good hands at any rate." lie tapped  the glass musingly with hi;* forefinger.  "It's curious," be said after u pause.  "I always liked Sanderson -in the pulpit Somehow he doesn't appeal to me  at close range."  The special car which tbe bir-hop had  ready had been made a pleasant interior, fern boxes were in the corners.  a caged canary swung from a bracket.  and a softly cushioned couch had been  prepared for tbe sick man. A moment  before the start, as it was being coupled to the rear of the resting train.  While the bishop chatted with the conductor, a flustered messenger boy banded him a telegram,   it read:  I arrive Anniston tomorrow 5. Confidential.    Must see you.    Urgent.  JESSICA.  The bishop read it in some perplexity. It was the first word be had received from her since her marriage;  but, aware of Hugh's forgery and disgrace, he had not wondered at this.  The newspapers today pictured a still  worse shame for her ih the. position of  the man who in the name still was her  husband, who had trod so swiftly tbe  downward path from thlevei-y to tbe  worst of crimes. Could Jessica's com  ing have to do with that? He must  see her, yet his departure could no!  now be delayed. He consulted with  the conductor, and the latter pored  over his tablets.  As a result his answering message  flashed along tbe wires to Jessica's  faraway train:  Sanderson Injured. Taking him to  coast train 48 due Twin Peaks' 2 tomorrow afternoon.  And thus the, fateful moment ap  preached when the great appeal should  be, made.  **.���������*  The evidence of the first day's trial  of the case of the people against Hugh  Stires was the all engrossing topic  that, night in Smoky Mountaiu. Barney McGinn perhaps aptly expressed  the consensus of opinion when he said,  "I allow we all know he's guilty, bu!  nobody believes it"  Late as. Smoky Mountain sat up thai  night, however, It was on band next  morning, rank and tiie, when tbe court  convened.  All the previous evening, save for a  short visit to the cell of his elieu'.  Felder had remained shut "in his office  thinking of the morrow, in bis talk  with Harry he bad not concealed bis  deep anxiety, but to bis questions there '  was no uew answer, and be had ro  turned from the interview more nonplused than ever. lie bad w'-udereu  that Jessica on this last night did no;  come to his office, but bad beeu rathe:  relieved than otherwise that she did  not. He had gone to bed heavy witb  discouragement and had waked In the  morning with foreboding  As he turned from greeting "as cli ���  ent in the packed courtroom Felder  noted with surprise lhat Jessica was'  not In her place; not that he needed her  further testimony, for be bad -drawn  from her the day before all be intended  to utilize, but her absence disturbed  him, and instinctively he turned and  looked across tbe sea of faces toward  the door.  Harry's glance followed bis, and a  deeper pain beleaguered it as his eyes  returned to the empty chair. He saw  Mrs. Halloran whisper eagerly witb  the lawyer, who turned away, with a  puzzled look, iu his bitterness the  thought came to him that the testimony hnd sapped her conviction of his  "I have learned hu true character during these days."  Innocence; that his refusal to answer  her entreaties had been the last straw  to the load under which It had gone  down; that she believed him indeed the  murderer of Moreau. To seem the  cringing criminal, the pitiful liar and  actor In her eyes! The thought Btung  him.   Her faith had meant so much.  The ominous feeling weighed heavily  on Felder when he rose to continue the  testimony for the prisoner, so rudely  disturbed the evening before. In such  a community pettifogging was of no  avail. Throwing expert dust in jurors'  eyes would be worse than useless. In  his opening words he made no attempt  to conceal the weakness of the defense, evidentially considered. Stripped of all husk, his, was to be an appeal to Caesar.  Through a cloud of witnesses concisely, consistently, yet with a winning  tactfulness that disarmed the objections of the prosecution, he began to  lead them through the series of events  that had followed the arrival of the  self forgotten man. Out of the mouths  of their own neighbors���Devlin, Barney McGinn, Mrs. Halloran, who came  down w��-���Ding���they were made to flee  pa in a cyclorama the struggle for re  habilitation agalnwt hatred and suspicion, the courage tbat bad dared for a  child's life, the honesty of purpose  that showed in self surrender. The  prisoner, he said, had recovered bis  memory before thei accusation and as  serted his absolute Innocence. Those  who believed him guilty of the murder  of Dr. Moreau must believe him also u  vulgar liar and poseur. He left the  inference clear: If the prisoner had  fired that cowardly shot he knew it  now; if he lied now he had lied all  along," and the later life he had lived  at Smoky Mountain, eloquent of "fair  dealing, straightforwardness of purpose, kindliness and courage, had been  but hypocrisy, the bootless artifice of  a shallow buffoon.  The session was prolonged past the  noon hour, and when Felder rested his  case it seemed that all tbat was possi  ble had been said. He had done his utmost. He had drawn from the people  of Smoky Mountain a dramatic story  and bad filled in its outlines with color,  force and feeling. And yet as he closed the lawyer felt a sick sense of failure.  Court adjourned for an hour, and In  the interim Felder remained in a little  room in the building, whither Dr.  Brent was to send him sandwiches and  coffee from the hotel.  "You made a fine effort. Tom," the  latter said as they stood for a moment  in tbe emptying courtroom. "You're  doing wonders with no case, and the  town ought to send you to congress on  tbe strength of It! I declare, some of  your evidence made rae feel as mean as  a dog about the rascal, though I knew  all the time he was as guilty as the  devil."  The lawyer shook his head. "I don't  blame you. Brent" he said, "for you  don't know him as I do. I have seen  much of him lately, been often with  him, watched him under stress, for he  doesn't deceive himself: he has no  thought of acquittal! We none of us  knew Hugh Stires. We put him down  for a shallow, vulgar blackleg, without  redeeming qualities. But the man we  are trying is a gentleman, a refined  and cultivated man of taste and feel  ing. I have learned his true character  during these days."  "Well," said the other, ^'if you believe in him, so much the better. You'll  make the better speech for it Tell me  one thing.  Where was Miss Holme?"  "I don't know."

At a farther  station, however, she was able to take  a night train back, arriving again at  Twin Peaks in the gray dawn of the  next morning.  When tbe train for which she waited  came in, the curtained car at its end.  she did not wait for the bishop to find  ber on the platform, but stepped aboard  and made her way slowly back, it  started again as she threaded tb** last  Pullman, to find the bishop on its rear  platform peering out anxiously at tbe  receding station.  He took both her hands and drew her  into the empty drawing room. He was  startled at her pallor. "I know," he  said pityingly.   "1 have heard."  She winced.   "Does Anlston know?'  "Yes," he answered. "Yesterday's  newspapers told it"  She put her band on bis arm. "Can  you guess why I was coming home?"  she asked. "It was to tell Harry San  derson! I know of tbe fire," she went  on quickly, "and of his injury. 1 can  guess you want to spare him strain or  excitement but 1 must tell him!"  He reflected a moment He thought  he guessed what was in her mind. If  there was any one who had ever had  un influence over Hugh for good it was  Harry Sanderson. He himself, he,  thought, had none. Perhaps, remembering their old comradeship, she was  longing now to have this influence exerted to bring Hugh to a better mind,  thinking of his eternal welfare, of bis  making bis peace with his Maker.  "Very well," he said. "Come," and  led the way into the car.  Jessica followed, her bands clinched  lightly. She saw the couch, tbe profile  on its cushions turned toward the window where forest and stream slipped  past���a face curiously like Hugh's!  Yet it was different lacking the other's  strength, eveu its refinement And  this man had molded Hugh! These  vague thoughts lost themselves instantly in the momentous surmise that  filled her imagination. Tbe bishop pnt  out his hand and touched the relaxed  arm.  The trepidation that darted Into the  bandaged face as It turned upon the  girlish figure, the frosty fear tbat  blanched tbe haggard countenance,  spoke Hugh's surprise and dread. It  was she, and she knew tbe real Harry  Sanderson was in Smoky Mountain.  Had she heard of the chapel fire,  guessed the imposture and come to  denounce him, the guilty husband she  had such reason to hate? The twitch-.  Ing limbs stiffened. "Jessica!" be said  in a hoarse whisper.  "Harry," said tbe bishop, "Jessica is In  great trouble.   She bas come with sad  (Continued next week.)
