"I am pleased to say-that'-'the'"depart  ment have decided to devote three day  to the Central Farmers' meetings hen   j  after, as the volume of work   done  i   i  these conventions is increasing so rapic  ly that it is  found  impossible  to  g<  through the business in two days.  "Among other changes in the department for the coming year, it is proposei  that the' Superintendent of Institutes  will send to each institute a copy of the  resolutions passed at the previous annual  meeting and a report of what action, ii  any, that the Government have taken  on them, so Ghat the delegates will havt  a better idea of how to act and save a lot  of time in asking questions.  "The department are also sending out  forms to the different institutes to be-  filled up, stating lectures, speakers, dates  and subjects desired,. and will arrange  tours. They are also arranging apple  packing schools at several points in the  province at the .larger shipping place-i.  I made inquiries as to whether we could  take it up. or not,- but found that the ar-  ���������x-augeiacrsts had all been completed for  ���������this"year?' -'However the department  ftavo promised to sand packing demon  strators during the season, if applied for.  "Great disappointment was felt by the  department at Creston not sending fruit  for the British exhibitions, as we were  recommended by Mr. Winslow, the Government  horticulturist,   as having the  fruit; but on explaining that last season  = was an off season for apples ond that we  j did not feel competent to grade and pack  j for such an important exhibition as that,  11 was informed that at any   time  we  could call on Mr. Middleton, if he is free  to come and assist us 'in this   class  of  work.  "Considerable discussion took place  over nursery stock not being true to  name. Some growers who had purchased  trees from a catalogue house across the  line find .now that their trees are in bearing that they are not true to name, and  it was pointed out that the Government  is powerless to take action, unless the  nursery, selling the stock, have a licensed  igent in the province, and advised  igainst buying stcck from catalogue  aouses.  "The department are commencing a  ���������eries of literature, especially.gotten up  tor the fruit grower, written by experi.  ���������need men in the province, instead of  irticles written by men in other parts of  he dominion. The Fruit Magazine, of  Vancouver, is also to have correspond-  nts in the various fruit growing dis-  irists, who will write special articles,  ?hich will be of value to us.  "A unanimous vote was passed by the  agriculture Board of Fall Fairs and the  entral Farmers' Institute   to  hold a  anadian National Apple Show on the  d lines of the Spokane Apple Show, to  u held in Vancouver next November,  ad a resolution was passed, asking the  overnment to assist this proposition,  ad it is expected it will be put through  "Among the more important motions  is effecting ns, was one carried for the  G-overnment to further cheapen stumping powder to   the  rancher by paying  TTie Golden  Q  S> ���������*  Store*  As extreme tightness is  the  prevailing  feature of the money market.

"The Nelson delegates brought in a  lotion to do away with Central Farmers' Institute and to Hold four district  onventions.   This did not appeal to the  est of the Kootenay delegates or to the  Departxneht of  Agriculture,   and  was  iost.  "There was also a motion put to the  convention to form a B.C. Ponltryman's  Association on the lines of the Farmers'  Institute, which met' with sthe hearty  approval.of Jthe Department of Agricul-  ������ are and was carried. A 'A. motion -,was  also carried to put Women's Institutes  on the same footing as our Institute.  "Tbe motion that the Government  purchase clover seed and sell the same to  the farmers at cost price was carried.  "The motion for the Government to  assist^ rural telephone companies ' was  also carried. A motion was put and  carried, that the Government assist tlio  farmer in getting proper and efficient  cattle guards on all railroads operating  in the Province of B.C.  "Considerable discussion arose over  tho resolution dealing with the O. P. R.  freight rates between B.O. points and  the prairie provinces. The resolution  asked that the railway Fhould reduce the  freight charges bet ween B.O.. points and  tho prairie points and vice versa. It developed in course of di&rassion that the  present freight rate's charged compared  favorably with those in effect between  Washington points and the Northwest.  It was decided to change the resolution  and ask tho Government to appoint a  commission on freight and expreas rates  to disouBS tho matter with the O. P.AR.  Nothing definite was done.

' "Regarding our motion of a year ago  for a Government well boring* outfit, I  learned thai this was,thrown out, owing  to the fact that thero were i&> many^ irri.-  gation projects granted covering this  class of work, ann this would interfere  with their privileges. Regarding tho  lime sulphur spray, I find that lioth Pen*  dray's and the Victoria Chemical Co.'s  stand the Government test, and it is  recommended to add ten pounds of lime  to each barrel of diluted spray. Regarding a thoroughbred bull, Mr. Hodson  would not recommend a Shorthorn, but,  strongly reoommended a Hols tern."  After reading his report, a number of  questions werej asked him and he explained at some length tbe following  items in the report: Nursery stook not  being true to name from catalogue houses  across the line The merits of the Fruit  Magazine, of Vancouver, and why we  should support it 5 Canadian Apple Show  and why it Bhould be held; Institute  stumping powder and the abuse of its  privileges; 'Women's Institutes and how  they enn be obtained; Government operation of small demonstration plots in  fruit growing districts* and Government  apple packing schools; after which the  report was adopted aud a hearty voto of  thanks tendered Mr. Ooolc.  The next order of business was the  arranging by tho Institute for the pur-  ohnso of a oar of stumping powder, and  orders were taken for the same. Orders  were also taken for a supply of lime and  spraying fluid. Considerable discussion  took place over spring pruning, and it  was decided,to invite Mr. Middleton, of-  Nelson, Government Orchard Inspeotor,  over to give demonstrations on this clasp'  of work.  It was decided to make application to  the Government for demonstrators dur-'  ing the coming season on the subjects of  Bee Keeping Summer Pruning, Fall  Pruning, Applw Thinning, Apple Grading and Packing. A subscription list  was also drawn up for subscribers to. tho  Fruit Magazine, of Vancouver, and a  large number of 'members took up this  valuable paper, after which the meeting  adjourned. '  A. B. Fenwiok, of Fort Steele, was a  visitor to Creston on Wednesday. Mr.  Fenwiok, who is a resident of the Koot-  enoys for the paBt thirty years* soys that  he has great faith in the Oreston disttiot  as a fruit growing contre, and predicts a  great future ahoad of it, He says that at  Fort Steele things are very prosperous,  thp maoy logging camps employing hundreds of men, mako things lively. The  Crows' Nest Lumber Co. has this season  got some thirty-five million feet of logs  out, and the \vholo Fort Steelo section iR  jhst'now experiencing ah unprecedented  tate of prosperity.

THE   ORESTON,   B.C.   REVIEW.  ���������������������-  Xhe reception-gown is an-.all. important item to be reckoned with in dealing  with the question of this winter's outfit,  and is in many respects materially different from those that have for several  years been considered correct. There  are two quite distinct reception gowus;  one is the reception costume "with skirt,  waist and coat to match, or the one  piece gown with outside wrap, and the  other is the afternoon gown designed for  indoor wear. It is the latter that is re-  ������eivirig so much attention at the present moment and which is so extremely  smart and attractive. 'Until tlu* fashion  of wearing a gown cut open at the  throat became popular the present model  for tho afternoon gown had been considered suitable as a theatre gown, but in  this age of extravagance there must be  a gown for each and every occasion, and  the slight difference of the open waist  marks the gown satisfactorily.    All the  merits on her appearance does so from  the indefinable air of completeness that  marks her as being attired after fashion's latest dictates.  Theatre gowns are sadly troubling the  average dressmaker who has formerly  had to struggle (there is no other word  to use) with only street gowns and evening gowns, the formerly being generally  turned over to the taiior. Tlie theatre  gown of the moment is of such importance that it requires special care and  attention. As has often been said, it is  on the model of what was formerly call-  gown to be worn at informal dinners  and quito distinct from the dinner or  ball gown. Tlie tendency at present  would seem to be toward making it  more and more elaborate, cut lower, in  'the neck and with shorter sleeves, but  tlu* ������iijxi-test' sire as unlike as possible  to the ball gown. Tlie height of art, as  exemplified by long unbroken lines and  draped folds, is to bo found in the newest models .'for-this style, and although  at first glance the price demanded for  an absolutely plain draped gown seems  preposterous, it is easy to discern after  an attempt is made to cany out the  idea by aid of unskilled hands why these  apparently simple styles are so costly.  An extremely popular model is in black  and.'yellow or black and rose, or nattier  blue voile dc soie. There is the surplice  effect in the folds of the wn ist;.'while  the. manner in which tho folds on the  skirt are crossed one over the other is  almost impossible of description. A belt  of satin ov velvet, which, can, XT so desired, he ornamented hy a Huge mauu-  facthreil 'buckle, is. the only trimming,  the jewels of the wearer being supposed  to furnish the nceessarv lightening of  any too sombre appearance. The. con-  . trust of the black with h'te light color  is certainly startling, but everything de-  oainc. tiiere are many prac������icu-*..a.Sv������.'iuc*.* \  ?!!!ia!!"V ���������*"y e^t^m"^lly'^k1^.^t*n^i 1 V������^'!ds "ui^n how "the "fabric is disposed,  .���������..~ .       ...+.v  ...���������������.. ~~,v...     ,��������� ..-     f^ .{     ^^ ^e  diaped  or adjusted with  women who are intelligent enough to arrange to have the one gowii do duty for  both purposes.  Chiffon, velvet, arid in fact all velvets,  are extremely popular this winter, and   0f 0ne  for the afternoon gown there are manv !  out either the black or the color predom-  iHstiuy,  as   desired,    while      the   same  ne eat* be worked out in two shades  color.    Worked out in all black  -, , , . ..is   too  dark   aud  sombre,   except   if  most charming models made up in the { XVi>rn in mourninsr-. ���������  light pastel shades of -chiffon..-velvet.  Tliese are for indoor , Avear. but often  there is an outside -wrap which juakes  the costume complete. The lines ar*e  simple, although it must l>e admitted  there are many of the ugly, unbecoming  skirts caught in around the foot with a  large rosette, recalling to mind old-fashioned window drapery. The double  skirts are far prettier than these stiff  draped ones, while the long unbroken  lines are "till chosen by the women who  desires to  be becomingly gowned.    Tite  SLEEVE. DESIGNS'-IMPORTANT.  Tho sleeves of the reception and theatre gowns are an important consideration in the fashions now in vogue. There  are several different styles. The kimono  sh-eve is more than suggested by the  drapery on the waist, which forms the  upper part of the sleeves or fallls over  the transparent cap. Just above or just  below the elbow is the favorite length  ed an informal dinner gown, meaning a  for the  sleeve of  the open neck waist.  waists, while the folds of material  are   One model,  of pink  chiffon  or   net,   is  draped, nevertheless fit close to the fig  ure, and all the flat embroideries and  trimmings are selected in preference to  any other style. Be it understood that  every possible attention is paid to the  corset and to the fit of the gown, so  that if nature has not provided a perfect  figure every aid must be given to producing the effect of one. The size of the  waist Is diminishing, but the exaggeratedly small waist attained at the expense  <������f big hips and bust is not fashionable  either, nnd how the desired results arc  obtained in many instances is a, secret  known only to the corset maker, who is  . nu artist, if ever there was one, and who  has also a thorough and practical knowledge of anatomy.  EMBROIDERY AND APPLIQUE.  Exquisite in coloring are the newest  gowiw of this order mul embellished with  fine embroidery and luce applique, the  tliffecrnt models affording opportunity  for the display of either niituh or little  fine work, as' desired. With the plain  double or Hingh* skirt the embroidery on  the wuifit is the most important feature  <>f the model. A favorite model has the  tunic or overdress of some transparent  or lighter material, the embroidery is  on the lower piu-t of the upper skirt and  comparatively a small amount is used on  tin* Vt'iiist; a hand of satin or velvet below the embroidery is an effective finish  nnd this bund can either match in color  th������ material of the gown or bo of a  .darker shade or hltick, tin* strong contrast being a favorite fad of the day.  There, are such absolutely contradictory designs fashionable this season that  it ih really puzzling to choose. With the  plain skirts, the draped skirts, the pleated skirts and the gathered skirts It is  not an easy question to decide. The  gathered and plcutcil effects nre in marked contrast to tlio too tight fitting onos  of lust season, but exaggerated slender-  new* or ligure must be posHessed to make  the gathered or pleated skirt look at nil  smart and becoming, ..''Sloppy" is a moHt  inelegant expression, but it applies iniir-  velously to the effect given by n. hndly  hung full skirted gown. Tlie well dress*  I'd woman to-ilny must look trim nnd  well turned out. The hiiuiII Iniinl that  tiiHliion now I'oiiiiiiniiiU iiiiikes tliis more  tbnn r-ver iinuenitivi', nnil, in fuel, the  woman  who  receives the  must  compli*  close fittting, but is covered with black  chiffon or net that is slashed to show  the lining and is then gathered or drawn  into fine pleats finished with a jewelled  button. Then the sleeve is finished' with  ���������a broad band of openwork jet or jeweled passementerie. There are close fit-!  ting sleeves of pink chiffon, finished with  a hand of the. jet or passementerie that  from a distance gives the effect of the  .arm being bare, with a broad jewelled  bracelet. There are half sleeves of the  material to match the gown, short and  close fitting, and there will he worn a  scurf so draped as to form the sleeve.  This might have been expected, for the  tunic overdress has always the short,  loose sleeve, and then there must be the  tight and longer tindersleeve of lace or  chiffon. Details are tiresome, but again  -must it be most emphatically stated  that n ceaseless attention to detail is  the price of the finished appearance' re-  quired of the well-gowned woman of the  (lil> ��������� A.

Among the new pui-ses, the square  ones are popular.  In silks, brocade is the ultra petticoat  material at present.  Seal plush coats, made up after real  seal models, are in demand.

Herein y wings of fancy gilt are seen  on some of tbe smart tutbans and tri-  coincs.  Long f������r coats were never ia such  high favor. Most of them are quite closely  fitted.  Some  of the handsomest far  turbans  aie shaped almost exactly like a helmet.  Suede  boots    are made highly decorative by their close set, glittering buttons of gnnmetal hue.  Buttons continue large and claborato  for decorative effects, but they do not  appear in numbers.  Pelt Juliets in the softest colors and  ���������edged with rabbit skins come for the lit-  ���������tle people.  The broad bow of velvet is much worn  with the turnover collars or embroidered  batiste-or linen.  A few narrow fur stoles appear, but  the wide neck piece of this style is moro  ithe favorite.  Jet is beiug used on almost every article of jewelry. Jet watoh cases are among the novelties.  The old popular blues hold thoir own  in suits, bub fabrics are rough instead  of hard and smooth.  Black waists nre popular, nud are  shown iu net, crepe, voile, messaline, taffeta, moire, and satin.  Some of the velvet gowns for street  wear are so trimmed vnth fiu* that  wraps are considered  unnecessary.  Bows on shoes arc more iu evidence  than over before. In fact, there are bows  and bows and bows this season.

Among the   new   umbrellas' are  thos������  with palmetto handles. The handles are  handsomely carved and highly polished.  Hatpins \vere never so extravagant in  size and decoration. Some of the latest  and   richest  are   adorned      with  hand-  painted miniatures.  reking messaline is the name given to  a particularly alluring silk striped : etiif-  fon cloth that is quite a favorite for  blouses.  Sumptuous wraps f<-r the afternoon as  well as'for the evening are made with  wide, loose sleeves, and many have the  burnous drapery.  Beads and braid combine to make,  some of the new and unusual-cabocbons  on hats and gowns.

They   are   finished with. a  button-holed edge and have more or less;  elaborate handwork as-'w.ell.-..  Pillow covers of canvas, embroidered  in conventional designs, are'-aga'a.seen.

In fact,  the bishop tendency is marked. ,  The monotonous lack veil is having a:  rest, and those of deep violet, powder  blue, bottle green, prune, and seal, are  chosen by "the smartest dressers.

The new coiffure is all a-bristle \with,  shell pins and combs, and those for evening wear are richly decorated with inlaid-  metal  and sunken jewela  Sleeves that are cut in one with the  body of the garment, but which are neither of the old dolman shape nor of the  hodly used kimono style, figure in the  richest   coats.  A pretty ornament for the hair is n,  filet of. black velvet about half an inch  wide, finished with a tiny bow either  directly in front or a little to one side.  Panniers, whenever they arc employed  now, are made bf the most supple matr-  ials, which droop in long graceful folds,  instead of producing even a suggestion  of bouffantry.  Evening gowns are nglcnm with gold  nnd silver, usually the old fino tari.isii  shades. The metals are used as borders  and embroideries, veiled with transparencies, more or loss filmy.

In spite of  treatment, tho wound got no better and.  the foot became mora and more swollen  until it was several times its usual size.

In a couple of  5j| d.'iyo the swelling had gone down considerably, the discoloration Was less,  distinct and the pain was banished.

The,  New   York   Girl   Found   a   New  Form -of Entertainment, in Canada.  "Did you ever hear of a -walking par-i  ty"'" asked a New yVoik youn������ \yoman  who had ijust returned from a long stay  in Canada. "Ho, 1 do iibt' 'rhean little  walking trips across country in which a  group of persons engage, but a form of  evening's: entertainment. Those Canadian girls seem to be taking exercise  continually, and any social affair is ail  the more enjoyable across the border if  it includes what seems to some of us a  lot of hard work.  "Invitations to a walking party are  sent out with just as much ceremony  as if the affair was to be: avdance or a  theatre party. It is essential for a perfect walking party that thei'e shall be  a>i equal number of young ��������� nien /and  young women. Those invited meet at  the home of the hostess at' tlie' usual  timo for an evening affair. The guests  are paired off and the route of the walk  is announced.  "It isn't any walk around the block  by any means. Five miles at the least.  One ninn acts as a master of ceremonies,  and lie and his partner lead tho procession from the house. When the parade  has moved a certain specified distance  the leader calls a halt and turns his  partner, over-to the man of the next-  leading couple. Then each man moves lip  one, tho leader taking the girl*������et the  foot of the line.  "The march is resumed until tlio noxt  stage is reached and then another change  has been usually a complete change of  partners nil round.  "This isn't any summer amusement.  In fact, a tramp tlnough the snow with  the thei monietcr somewhere down near  zero is con^idoied awfully good sport.  But be it summer or winter, the paitici-  pants in a walking party return leady  to enjoy the supper which winds up the  evening.  "One thing against these walking parties, to my mind, is the continual changing of paitners. You no sooner get interested in your companion than you  have to turn him over to another giri.  Maybe you diaw a good partner at the  ���������start and a few mirutes Inter get a  stick. Of course it is eminently fair to  ������������������.every ��������� girl and to every man. but some  igirbv.you know, delight in being unfair  when7 there is a man in the case. As an  aid to flirtation these walking parties  aren't worth one of thoso big Canadian  cents you see sometimes, but as an exerciser they are all to the good. And  after all, the exercise is what these Canadians are looking for.  "Fm not -=uie that I won't try one. ot  these walking parties here in L-**ew Wrk.

It was a wonderful undertaking for  this woman, who had not been beyond  the confines of those walls fov so many  years, that she almost forgot what the  outside world was like.. Aud she, quite  an invalid at that; hut intense longing  and excitement seemed to buoy her up.  She took from ,her weirdrobe a long fur  cloak, a bonnet and veil, and heavy, iur-  linsd shoes.  It did riot occur to her how weird they  looked and strangely at variance with  the fashion of the present day as she  donned them. Her mind was busy with  other thoughts.  "Not? that I come to think of it, I  need not walk so very far," she ruminated. ' "The stage bound for the' Great  Bear Mines must pass the turn of the  road here. 1 can ��������� board the stage and  get out "at the "turn that leads over the  mountain. I^ong as I have been a recluse  within these walls, I have not forgotten  that."   .  She could not have told wliat prompted her to place the old will in her bosom,  and hold the new one tightly grasped  iu her hand. The key of the door was  hanging on a nail in its accustomed  place. With steadfast hand she inserted  It in the lock, and the ponderous oaken  door swung noiselessly back on its  hinges. She stepped quickly over the  threshold, and, for tho first time ia long,  ' miserable years, the fresh air of heaven  blew upon her faca.  . How strange it seemed to be out under  the stars of heaven once again. She did  not have time to think of this long, however, for at, that moment the horn of  the on-coming stage sounded clear and  shrill', on the night air.  W\th all haste the closely-veiled figure  made ite way down to the bend of the  road/ reaching there just in the nick of  time.* to hail the massing coach.  The driver did look a little astounded  at picking up a passenger in that secluded spot, and especially a woman, at that,  He did not' have the trouble of climbing down off his box to open the door  for her, for the-service was performed by  for her,.- for* that, service was performed  by' the passengej^ihside-^oc ��������� Brainardi,  who-f was going' all the trip with' him,  as far as the Great Bear mines.  Joe was .quite as much surprised us  the driver had been to seo this closely-  veiled", apparently elderly woman board  the stage,.,for he had'been assured that  he was the:dnly passenger booked for the  trip/-* Joe noticed that the stronger sank  quickly down into' the nearest seat, as  though the effort of climbing into the  high,, lumbering old-vehicle had taken,  considerable of- her strength, from* her,  and/*moreover,"she" had no rugs with:  ��������� which to wrap about her to make - herself comfortable on this bitter cold night.'  The swinging old coach proceeded on  its way, jolting the two occupants considerably as they struggled up the steep  mountain path.  "Who .and what'is this woman?" Joe  wondered, a strange souse of uneasiness  that ho could not Bliako off oppressing  him. \ "It's always unlucky for a woman  to board a stage after it has started."  ��������� CHAPTER X.  On and on rattled tlie old stage up tho  narrow, steep incline, pitching from side  to *ido like a boat on an angry sea,  threatening each moment to tip , over  undfhurl itself'down tlio yawning, icy  abyse wlUch seemed waiting to reoeive it  I   and iti������ human freight.

The Avoman siat bolt upright, uttering  a cry of consternation, exclaiming:  "Back to Hadley, did I understand  you to say? Surely I could not have'  heard aright." '  "This is the stage which goes over the  mountain, Tt started from Hadley, surely you could not liave niadie the mistake  of supposing it went to the village?" he  exclaimed in consternation.  "Yes, that is what I' thought," replied  luis companion, excitedly. "Great heaven! what shall I do? I will be obliged  to walk back the entire distance. How  wall I ever.be able to do it? I���������I will  pay the driver any price he'asks if he  wdU only turn around and take mc back  to Hod-ley."  "That would be quite an impossibility,  madam, as you will readily s������e when I  explain the matter to you," said Joe,  continuing:. "This stage has its regular  trip to make at a given time; other  vehicles which uiu������t cross the mountain are obliged to wait for it, for, should  two conveyances chalice-to meet, in the  roadway a male higher up, a great ca.1  amity would ens tie, for the road is too  narrow to passeaeh other by."  "Wliat shall I do?" exclaimed the woman, growing almost hysterical, "1  wanted to go to Hadiley. I have taken  the whong stage. I���������I shall have to get  out and���������and���������try to make my way on  foot."  "Allow me to suggesit a muoh more  practical way," returned Joe. "Remain  in this stage until the Hadley coach  passes, and then transfer into tbat. You  may lose an hour or so of time, but  that is nobbing compared to the hard*  ship of attempting to make your way  hack down the path on foot. Pew^men  would aibtempt it in this Egyptian, darkness, and surely no woman could afford  to risk her life by doing so."  "I am forced to take your advice and  oocept the situation ojs cailmly as possible, since there is no other way out of  it," she answered, with a sigh of resignation, as she sank back into her seat.  Before Joe could reply to her xemaik,  the door of the coach was hastily flung  open, and the red, flaring light from a  bull's-eye lantern was flashed upon the  two occupants of the vehicle, and above  it loomed a man's face, upon which was  a hlack mask.  In each band he carried a loaded revolver, tuwi a brae������ of weapons gleamed  from his belt.  "It's an, iii wind which blows nobody  -good," exclaimed the stranger, adding,  with a sardonic laugh: '"The acoident  which caused the drivers return to the  village was most fortunate for me. Otherwise I should have had two men to  overpower instead of one. But to business. You1 are the express messenger  from Hadley; you carry with you - a  very valuable package, which. I must  trouble J~ott to band over without de-  iay, my 'gcfod'Sir.* In other words, your  money or your life," he exclaimed.    ��������� '  As he spoke, the muzzle of one of the  revolvers was pressed close to Joe's  temple, the other over his heart.  That voice! The moment the sound  of it, even Wiougli the tone waa disguised, fell upon the strangle woman's ear,  the very heart in her bosom stood still,  for she recoznized at onoe. She tried to  cry out, tried to utter a single word,  but her tongue, her every limb seemed  paorlyzed. She could not have uttered  a single sound if hor life had depended  upon it, eho could only sit there, rigid  aud cold, like a statue carved in maitble,  watching the two luridly piercing eyes  that looked out from tlie mask, and tine  white hands holding the revolvers.

Poor Joe's  valiant courage had given away at last,  because tlio little strength which he had  posisefised when he arose from a sick bed  to take this journey failed him, leaving  him at liis assailant's mercy.

Suddenly the cord which. seemed to  bind Mrs. Barrison's every sense snapped asunder, and with a desperate leap,  for one in her condition, she sprang  headforemost from the vehicle���������her one  thought being to get away, anywhere���������  anywhere from the spot where she had  witnessed the horrible tragedy of the  murder of her fellow traveller.

So terrified was the hapless woman  over the horrible discovery, that the  power of speech had suddenly left her;  that, all forgetful of her' weakness and  the great amount of strength she was  exerting," she fairly flew down the slippery, snow-covered mountain road.  It was only by the mercy of heaven'  that she did not make a misstep and  go over the ledge into the yawning  abyss below, the darkness was so impenetrable.  How far she traversed she never  knew;   in   her   dazed   imagination   she  and higher still ov.������r v^. treetops,' landing them tlnor.yii a window left open  by mistake, directly into the room ol  Clifford Carlisle, ������<s though by preconceived design. A" ���������  But at'that'.moment, while life and  death struggled for supremacy in the  chilled body of Frances Barrison. the  light of-a'lantern came flitting like" a  huge earth-star.up the. path.  It was swung to and fro in the hands  of a young girl, and that young girl���������  Norine.  Was it strange and inexplicable fate  that caused the short cut through the  village to be blocked with .snow, thus  obliging those who must from necessity  venture out to take the long, roundabout journey/seldom used of late years,  which led past the stone house of Frances Barrison, the old recluse.  Norine had been to the bedside of one  of the sick village children who, she was  told that day, was calling for her incessantly.  The girl Was young, strong of limb,  warm of blood, and fearless of heart.  The wildness of. the storm was nothing  to her, nor was the depth of the drifting  snow.  She had ' pleaded.-so . hard.: with the  aged blacksiiiith and his wife, to go upon  this errand of mercy, that they could  not refuse her.  "I feel, .somehow, as though I may save  a life, grandma, by: going," she said,  gravely, as she kissed them good-by.  "Don't be the least uneasy about me,  even though I should'remain after, dark;  for I am not destined to die in the snowdrifts, you know." A y '  Grandpa Gordon would have watched  Norine out of sight, if his dear, cautious  old wife had hot drawn him away from  the window, remarking that it y/as never  lucky to; watch any one ��������� departing.  Norine had made, her "duty visit," as  she called: itj and had set out on lier  way homeward.  It was by the merest chance she observed the prostrate; figure lying in the  roadside, half covered by the drifting  snow. She had been within a hair's  breadth of passing it by, supposing the  dark object to be a part of a tree blown  down, when suddenly she beheld the: object move ydistinetly. The wind' had  caught up the folds of the long cloak,  and was blowing it to and fro.  Norine stopped short in the road, and  held down her lantern close to the object.  "A���������a woman!";.-;. she cried, in the  greatest consternation. "Either dead or  dying on the  roadside.    What    shall I  do?"   . '��������� -'yyA;A:  She raised her head and cast a quick  glance about her, quickly espying the  old stone house. No other habitation  was about..  "I will go in these and summon help!"  she cried, excitedly. "It is the home of  the old woman miser, or recluse, or whatever they call her. No matter how hard  and cold and cruel she is, she cannot  refuse succor to this poor creature, dying  out ere in the cold of this awful night."  Norine's lungs wera strong and vigorous, she helloed loud and long���������her shrill  cries for help piercing the thick walls  and almost deaf ears of old Esther and  her husband, who were taking their  toast and tea by the kitchen fire.  . "What is that?" exclaimed old Esther,  setting down her cup and listening intently.  "Nothing��������� nothing' whatever," declared her husband. "You are nervous  and fanciful to-night, Esther "  "It's just eighteen years ago to-night  that- " ......  "Yes, ye3. I know it.

Not So Easy to Walk at That Rate as  Many   Persons   Imagine.  There is nothing that the average person believes uiore implicitly than that  he can walk four miles in an hour easily.  Almost any one will say: "We were out  walking for an hour and a half to-day.  Let me see, four miles an hour; that  makes six mines we went," and he is  convinced that is the ground his party  covered.  That same average person has only to  try to walk four miles in sixty minutes  to discover that it is good stiff going.  There are many more folks who cover  three miles in the time w;hen they  tiiink they are going at the rate of a  mile better than there are who actually  know the pace they are making.  It is an easy thing to determine. For  instance, one man started, at 110th  street on Central Park West and walked  down alongside the park. He noted the  time on his watch when he started and  swung along at a gait that he fondiy  believed was a mile in ten minutes.  That, for instance, would be abo'u���������"-^fie-  half the speed that the average mile  runned would make when he was .fairly-  new to the game, bnt he would have to  have trained for a time to do that.  The walker didn't take out his watch  until he had reached Ninetieth street,  the end ,of his first mile. Then he  looked. It was fifteen minutes almost  to the second when he ended that mile.  This, was a little of a shock, especially  as there were only a couple' of cross-'  walks in the way and there was a nice  stretch of gravel path alongside the  pavements on which to walk. But he  started off again for ��������� the second mile1!  This time he walked steadily, using" his  hips, and eventually got striding at a  clip that convinced him he was going  at least four minutes better than the  other time. At Seventieth struct he  inexorable wntcli showed fourteen minutes for the second mile.  "And then I was all out,"* said the  walker, "and I made up my mind I  wouldn't try to inako time for ,the rest  of my walk down town. Those two  mile* in twenty-nine minuted were  about my best. Perhaps I could have  done the two in a little bettor/'but to  go on for two more would have pulled  the average down. It taught me some-  thing about   that  four miles   an  hour  srificed-  girl as a propitiatory offering  against cholera, and in Paiamau a  boy was'enticed into the jungle and  killed as a sacrifice. There can be  iittle doubt that any relaxation o*  vigilance would result in a serious  increase of witch killing and human  sacrifices. ��������� From the Allahadad  Pioneer.    ^MEN WHO SUFFER  idea.

At special times unusual demands  are made upon her strength. Wbere  these are added to the worry and harS  work which falls to her lot, weakness  will result unless the blood" is fortified  to meet the strain.  Weak   women   find   in Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills  tlie tonic exactly suited to  their needs.   Most of the ills with which  they suffer are due to bloodlessness���������a  condition  which  the Pills readily cure.  These Pills save the girl who enterB into  womanhood  in  a    bloodless ,���������   condition  from years of misery, and afford prompt  and permanent relief to the women who  is bloodless, and therefore weak.   Mra.  R. Kshcr,   Coates Mills,   N.   B.,   says:  "Some time ago my condition was in a  very anaemic condition, as the 'result of  an internal   hemorrhage  caused by  an  accident.    Though I had the services ot  a skilled doctor for a time, I did not recover my strength, and gradually I grew  so weak, that I could not do any housework.    As  I seemed to grow steadily  weaker I became much discouraged, tot  previous to my-accident, I had always  been a healthy woman.   About,this time  I received a pamphlet telling me of the  strengthening powers   of Dr. Willfains'  Pink Pills!      I procured a box: at'once  And     began    using    them, when  they  were '  gone  E  got    three   boxes' more,  and' by the time I had used these I found  myself somewhat stronger and my appetite much better.    Before I began  the  Pills I could' scarcely wailk upstairs, and  could do no work at all.   Now after taking three boxes I wa6 able to.walk out  in the open air.      I kept on with the  Pills, and after using six boxes was delighted to. find that I could again attend to my household affairs.    I took  two   moro    boxes  of the Pills,  and I  felt that I was as well as ever I had  been, and: equal to any  kind of exertion.      I have since recommended Dr.  WHUitms'   Pink  Pills   to   friends   with,  beneficial results."

It is important and most desirable  that more of the local fruit growers  should-join the Board of Trade. ATbe  Board of Trade is composed of business  men and a few fruit growers, and we  would like to see more'fruit growf rs as  members of this important body. It is,  j?s a matter of fact,, the fruit growing industry that the Board of Trade Is trying  ro aid, by a systematic course of advex-  t isitig. Why t hen should not the actual  fruit grower come in and aid in the gootl  work? The fruit growers st. pitssesiis iu  ' he Board of Trade are exceedicglyyttss*-  fal members, for their opinions on fruit  questions are valuable, but there should  l>e more bf these men in the Board   of  Orower, if you are not already a member of this organization.  FrOm present appearances the year  1910 will be a banner year for the Cres-  to������v district. Up to tho present time  this district has had practically no ad  vftrtisin'g whatever, and the advertising that has lately been done and which  is now about to be done by the Board of  Trade will bring good results this summer. Is is a safe prediction that this  coming summer will be a most progressive season for Creston, and it behooves  l������oth the fruit growers and the business  iiisu to secure from P. B. Fowler, Hon'.  Sec. of the Hoord of Trade, a good supply of the spiiciul letterheads and envelopes thnt have recently been printed and  which will so effectively advertise the  OrestOn district.  AFTER THE ELECTIONS  The following article on the election  in Great Britain, has boen received from  Ralph G.

As  a fact, the Unionists have done a little  better than I expected, at the expense of  the liibernl-IJabos confederation.

If the promises of both, sides to extend  Old Ass Pensions, commence Labor T2x-  chan^es (these latter are beginning this  month on a large scrJe} and other social  reform p licies are to be continued, the  necessitv for at once raisiug a large additional revenue is at once apparent  The Tariff Reformers say, with truth,  that these revenues cvrn only be obtained  by extending the taxes to include foreign man ufactnred goods and that the  Liberal Government, by incurring these  vast expense?, have themselves hilled  Free Trade.  Then there will be a substantial sum  to raise for the navy. The Unionist party ijjive made the present state of the  navy one of the chief planks, and with  their augmented and solid party insisting ou increases, headed by men like  Charley Beresford and other naval and  military members, who have gone in on  the Unionist ticket at this election.  They are bound to have a big say on this  point.  The opposition to the laud and licensing clauses in the Budgot will be renew  ed by a strengthened opposition and uiso  by a large section of the Nationalist  members, who object to the whisky tax-  as, as they will damage Irish interests.  A deflection of just a few Liberal-Labor  or Nationalist votes in any of these divisions will suffice to put out the Liberal*.

Of these, six tons  to the acre is the average crop, and I  have never known the price per ton to  be less than $20; and oue exceptional  year the pric9 ranged as much as $60 per  ton.'  To secure a fair crop of potatoes, the  ground should be plowed in the fall and  again in the spring. As soon as the earth  is sufficiently dry to cultivate, it Should  be gone over twice with a good cultivator to preserve the moisture and prevent  the land from packing. Before plaoting,  the ground should De plowed about eight  or ten inches deep, then disced aud harrowed about four times aud then rolled  in order to make it firm, and harrowed  again after rolling to prevent -packing.  Personally, I always plant with a plow  in every third furrow, about four inches  deep. At the end of each day, what, has  been planted should be harrowed, and  when all is planted and well harrowed  the ground should be rolled and then  harrowed again. On completing the  foregoing operations, the soil should be  well harrowed,every week until the po  tatoes are up, when a one-horse cultivator can be used.  I may add that turnips, carrots, and  manges do well and assist in cultivating  the soil. .  In the hockey match last Sunday between the Creston and Port Hill teams,  CrestGii w-jn out, th@ score being Creston 7, Port Hill 1. The Creston team  was composed of N. Brown, R. McPeak,  Jack Cameron, G. Dow, E. McClure aud  J. McLeod, also a kid from .Erickson.  A man by the uameof Caruiaw, employed by the Crestou Lumber Co. at  Erickfcou, had .his face badly frozen  while working in the bush during the  recent cold suap.  Mrs. E. Harrison and Mrs. Elliott, of  Erickson, made a business trip to Port  Hill on Tuesday last.  the same play twice within two weeks  in their home town, and on both occasions to crowded houses. Many visitors  from outside towns, who witnessed the  play on Tuesday evening, were fairly  dumbfouuded at the good acting done  by these local actors.  P.   W.   Heathcote, formerly   of   the-  Bank of  Coaimsrce,  at Dawson City,  who has been paying a vibit to his brother here for the past tew days,  says that,  he is greatly pleased  \vuh Creston and.  predicts a great future for it.

There  was a large gathering, many of whom  had beeu preseut to witness the first performance of-this play teu days %eo.

SHOQUNG1  Hi-Urn the Noblest of  Heroism is  Punished.  Shortly before railroads /were forced  to elevate their tracks--within the city  limits, John Matchett, an engineer, was j  Operating a switch engine, on'tracks paralleling Archer avenue. It was dusk,',  ���������and Matchett's engine was standing on  * switch track ao that a fact, outward  found   passenger   train   might   pass.  "Matchett heard the passenger traihy  frith its human load coming in the distance Simultaneously lie discovered an  inward bound freight train, running at  high speed and almost at the junction  ; of the side track ith the main line. A  JooUision between' the passenger and the  ijroight apeared to he inevitable. Match- *  i������tt  thought otherwise.  ��������� "Jump off and flag the passenger,"  (shouted Matchett to his fireman, at the  |same time opening the throttle of his.  .engine.  The fireman jumped and the switch  engine leaped forward over the rails with  Matchett alone in. the cab. At tho  ���������witch the switch engine crashed obliquely into the freight engine and both" loco-  ���������motives were piled up���������a mass of wreckage. Matchett was killed,  "Sick Man's Friend"  That*s tlie Name Gives by Thou**  sands to ythe Old Family  Stand-feyf A4 l&zxviUnef*  \ ,00Qf0Q0 BQttlss* U������������d Aneiually  No better known : or more popular  family remedy has ever been, compounded than *'Nerviline."

"No one could get me to go to bed at  night unless I was sure we had Nerviline  in   the   house,"  writes Mrs.   JR..   R.  Weightman, of Boltman p. O.

CURED  4 YEARS  RHEUMATISM  of the passenger  fireman had succeeded in flagging. The  pilot of the passenger engine was stopped within a few feet of the wreck in  (which waa buried the crushed body of  *tbe hero.  To   the   average   thinking citizen,    it  ; seems almost incredible that a-corpora-  ' tion would meditate  depriving the  wi-  'dow and children of a man like Mat'ch-  fefct, who had saved his credit with the  ���������traveling  public^ and   prevented       the  ���������uncounted loss of life at the cost of his  'own, b������ aid, but that is just what this  ttaiiroad did.   The claim waa set up that  'Matchett's voluntary martyrdom      was  ; outside  his  technical line   of  duty  and  . -Aflat consequently his heirs were not en-  ���������titled to any recompense.  y The attorneys for  the   railroad   company   actually thought   they  stood      a  chance of, beating the widow and ehild-  'ren of Matchett out of    the sustaining  'amount  of  money   by  this   monstrous  (plea.

WHERE DO THE  ���������a   t .raiicrn  LOST,    STRAYED,    BUT   CHIEFLY  STOLEN,   IS THE ANSWER.  Caddies With a Habit of Stealing-  Young Crooks That Work In Pairs  en ths Public Links���������Remaking  Second Hand Golf Balls���������Professional   Dealers.  In One Night  /  Tho ��������� conundrum used to be, Where do  all the pins go to? Now it is, What becomes, of the golf balls? As several  millions of golf bails aro manufactured  every year and as no one sees any of  last year's balls in thia year's holes they  must go somewhere.  A few years ago manufacturers used  to buy up second hand balls of their  own make remould them putting them  cost 75. There used to lie dollar balls,  Tliey had a standard price for balls regardless of condition so that no matter  how badly cut up a' ball might be it  was worth so much to the manufacturer  who wanted to make it over.  The idea then was that tho interior of  tho balls was as good as ever and that  ib was only the outside or gutta pcrcha  covering that was injured by use. Ex-  perience demonstrated that this was a  mistake and that the life and resiliency  of a ball is destioyed by continual hard  hitting.  The*re is an enormous amount of  money spent on golf balls, and yet  their ,*life is very short. The standard  price 'js 50 cents, although some makes  cest 75. There used to be dollar balls,  but there was not enough to' them to  justify the price and they are no longer on the market. When a player offers  to bet' a ball a hole or to play a Nassau,  which means a ball on each nine holes  and one on the match, it is understood  to mean 50 cents, even if both men use  75 cent balls.  Very few golfers will play more than  oightefen holes with the same ball. When  a first class player succeeds in getting  thirty-six or more holes out of a ball  without injuring either its driving or  putting qualities he thinks it is remarkable. These eighteen or thirty-six holes  have "/supposedly reduced the value of  tha seventy-five cent ball to 10 or 15  cents/' at which prico they are picked u-p  by those who make a business of dealing  in second hand balls.  Of course a great many balls are lost  on the Jinks, or at least abandoned as  lost on the links, or at least abandoned  as lost until picked up by .the caddies  or green keepers. These abandoned balls  are seldom good, because first class  players do not lose balls very often and  the duffers do not play with new balls  more' than once in a dozen times. A beginner will often make a dozen bails  last him until he has lost them all, one  at a jtime, and he will play with a ball  so ola. and dirty that he cannot find it  off the fair green.  The caddies are the iegitimate collectors of lost balls, but in the best clubs  members are-not allowed to buy balls  The Story of Sufferers From  Bronchitis, Asthma and Catarrh  Proves the Value oi Catarrhozone.

The interest may have nothing sentimental about it. It probably has  not at the start. It may be, and  probably    is,    pure  friendliness. No  matter, shoulders are shrugged, meaning glances of the eye given, so-called  joking questions asked if he but mention her name or she his.  It is a most pernicious habit. It  makes the young people self-conscious at once. It puts ideas into  their heads that need never have  been there. It has broken up many  a pleasant friendship or led young  people on into love affairs who were  totally unfitted for each other.  To a sensitive girl such allusions  are positively painful. If friends joke  her about a certain young man or the  family make insinuating remarks, her  manner toward him becomes suddenly  chilly and reserved. She doesn't want  people to get any such foolish ideas.  On liis past, aot knowing perhaps that  anything has been said and therefore  not understanding her conduct, his feelings or his pride are hurt and a pleasant and helpful friendship is broken  off. A girl should pay no attention to  such suggestions; but it is almost  impossible for a sensitive girl not  to.  If the man's friends take the initiative it may come to him as a shock  that perhaps he is paying her attentions that ~ will put wrong ideas into  her head. And he withdraws. Often the intimacy of two people who  might really care for each other in  time, if they had been left alone, is  broken up.  On the other hand the silly remarks of thoughtless friends may  make two young people believe there j  is more in their friendship than they  had thought.

Besides, Chester was the only possessor of a pair of  really truly riding breeches.  As they came riding grandly into the  pastuie. shouts resounded from the back  fence audience. Chester was loading, followed by Dotty, resplendent in a ruffled laee curtain of her mother's. Billy,  as he did not own a pony, was to be  clown. He wore his brother's masquerade suit, and with face powdered with  flour and smeared with juice of red berries, he was to ride Ins mother's cow.  .Lastly came the two boys who did the  acrobatic stunts. ^  Chester did his part well. Dotty did  some wonderful contortion work in order to stay on the pony's back.

In n region where ledges of Gold-bearing Quarts are a prominent  feature in tho formation, it is natural that these forces of Nature should  tear awoy quantities of exceedingly rich material.  This process has been going on for ages. The hidden stores of  Gold away in the hills ore inexhaustible.  The rush of the torrents is so impetuous that even boulders of  considerable size are borne in their course, and only when Nature  has spent lierwlf do they find a resting place.

But in the larger, constant streams,  these rich deposits arc beyond tha reach of merely human agencies.  It remains for the Gold Dred.-jo���������following the heavy nuggets  ana particles of Gold down through tlio overlying strata in the ban  ana benches of die river, to recover these ntorei of Gold horn the  licasure-houte of Nature.
