A Speers  Dominion Day  Rifie Shoot  A DAY OF SPORT AND PLEASURE WITHlTHE MEN BEHIND jTHE GUN.  Dominion.  day  1x1  Creston  passed off quietly, suffering as  the result of being sandwiched  in between the Coronation day  festivities and the big celebration planned, for the 12th July.  the big-event was the shoot  for, -the club spoon,and the  Dominion government .cup,  commencing at ~ the rifle range  at 9.30; a.-m., and .some thirty  members, of the Erickson Rifle  Association turned out to compete ia these events.,  " The shooting ��������� -was-'a fair average,' noTecords being broken,  at any. rate/not before lunch,  when the cup shoot took place.  G. M. Gunn finished highest  marksman bf the day with a  ecore of 84, but E. Botterill,  having shot, in the previous  shoots which, count in the competition, is cup winner on the  day and also wins "th'e Club  spoon with a total of 83.  There is a peculiarity about  ihe Erickson range worthy of  notice, namely, that the shooting always improves arf.the  day got* on, and Vhminion Day vuas  no exception, but the shooting  is always better between lunch  and sundown. It may be the  weather, but credit for this improvement should in our opinion, be given to the ladiea of  the Methodist church who provide the luncheons on these occasions. The Review man, it  may be remarked, was, alas!  too late for lunch, but in ample "tSfw������   to he .-'ft- poor substi-  J tute for Tom Crawford, who  foreseeing the   worst, thought-  | fully deposited the losers share  of the great # afternonon ice  cream stakes in the hands of  his opponent, and after shooting at the 200 yards, hurried  away from the seene of the  slaughter of the innocents, and  wended his way back to town.  Missing the luneh did the  trick ana when the two sides  had finished, the face of Mr.  Hyde was wreathed in smiles,  his cheeks were as rosy red  with anticipation as the luscious berries over which he later contentedly smacked his lips,  whilst the Editor was "stuck."  It was a terrible downfall,  after getting a beautiful lead  at ��������� the 200, we were compelled to watch them piling up  the winning score, and subsequently had to sit and listen in^  silence.to .-their sarcastic re^  ,marks, the whilst if you please  they gorged themselves at our  expense.  But ah, R-R-Revenge is very  sweet, and on some future occasion the tables shall be turned.  The shooting and feasting  was all over by 5.30 p. m. and  after a vote of thanks   to the  ladies, the riflemen, victors and  vanquished, walked home together.

The members of these powerful ^ lodges alone wouldT be  sufficient to guarantee success,  but the provision of a special  train,, the long and elaborate  program including star attractions, such as the Cranbrook-  Creston baseball game, and the  association football match, the  extensive advertising and the  guaranteed local support, will  stamp the occasion' as one  which should appeal to the  general public, who are always  anxious to attend any good  thing, and a record attendance  is therefore assured.

B. Lamont, is now the proud owner  of a well bred mare and colt, 'the more  is a roadster which has taken prizes in  the show ring at Oalgary, and when  she is harnessed up to the buggy, Bob  hopes to almost rival Mr. Staples, who  drives the fastest piece of horse flesh  that travels in this valley.

The ladies who have volunteered to  help in the booths on the 12th July, ore  requested to meet at the Bunce Storo,  in the ovoning of July llth., tho refresh  ments wUl be stored in tbe Bunoo Storo  until the morning of the 12th.

Sentence of six months in jail was  imposed on Toney Covello, who was  found guilty by his honor Judge Wilson  yesterday, of inflicting actual bodily  harm npon Duck Oreek Davie, an Indian, at Duck Creek near Creston, on  June 4th last. The sentence dates  from time of arrest.  Dr. Henderson, and Paul Hagen of  Creston, gave evidence' substantial ly the  same as at the preliminary hearing.  Covello said thnt he was chopping  wood, when the Italian arrived near the  shack where he, the accused, hod slept  the previous night. He said hello!, and  asked   Davie  what he had got.   The  Indian was carrying a rifle over his sho.  ulder; and the Italian asked him ts sell  it The Indian answered in the afflrma  tive, and was offered $10, accused pulling a roll of bills out of his pooket. The  Indian then refused to sell.  " He va* looking at me pretty bod,"  said Covello, who explained that he  thought Davey was about to attack  him. A struggle ensued for the possession of the rifle, daring whioh Covello  suoceeded in jerking a loaded shell out  of the breech. The Indian then pointed  the gun at him, and the struggle continued " I was afraid to let him have  the, gun, and he was afraid to let mo  have it " said Ooveiio, who explained  how the rifie was exploded four times.'  The Indian in his evidence, explained  that he fired the rifle with the object* of  emptying the magazine.  Covello   then told how> he and the  Indian   struggled on-* the 'ground, and  how ho pounded Davie's head ^with a  rock, which he claimed he polled out of;  HheludUan^band"^.'*' ^ yj:"'    ".

Luke Prentice carefully reread the  letter a second and a third time..  Wbeu he had learned it quite by heart  be tore it into a hundred bits and  flung them to the four winds of heaven. '  "1 reckon there won't another girl  git. a chance to throw me down." said  Luke sullenly as he dug his spurs into  the cow* pony's flank. "Hump your-  self. Stebbins. if you want a rubdown  and a bite tonight!"  Stebbins hunaped himself to such  .good effect that it lacked an hour of  sundown when he loped into tbe corral of tbe Three X, ranch. Bis rider  dismounted, and. nodding grimly to  the circle of cowboys gathered around  the fire, he rendered the promised services to Stebbins and then entered the  bunk house, where be made a careless  toilet.  VMWednesday night's beau nigbt." remarked Fletcher, scanning Luke's blue  flannel shirt with a lifted eyebrow.  **You know, Luke, we kinder look to  you to keep up the reputation of the  ranch, you beiug the most popular  courting gent in the outfit. You ain't  soing to baok out and stay home?"  "That's just what I'm going to do."  staid Mr Prentice, turning a dangerous glance toward bis tormentor. **I*ve  heard it said that 1 ought to stay  home and give some of you other fellers a chance with the girls. Of course  I don't *wani to stand in anybody's  ���������way. I'm taking a few courting days  off, see?"  Tbey all saw and passed the wink  -to Fletcher.   That gentleman pulled at  his long mustache, turned it fiercely j  upward and smiled thoughtfully. j  "Thank you. Luke." he said at'lastin J  a  velvety  tone.     ~l*ve  been   waiting j  a long time for a chance, so as you've j  dropped   oat  of   the  game   I'll   just  mope   along   the   Chincapin   trail   tonight.   I got a box of candy laid asi-tte  for just such an emergency."  The Chincapin trail led to the Chincapin ranch, and there was where Es-  telle Blair lived with her brother  'Frank. It was said that Luke Prentice  mounted on Stebbins had worn the  Chincapin trail down to bedrock. It  iwas a fact $hat\ he had fallen desperately iu love with Estelle Blair and  that for a time at least she-appeared  to reciprocate bis feeling. Lately,  however, Estelle had grown cool and  'distant, and' now their friendship bad  ��������� Ibeen severed by the, curt little letter  she bad sent advising him that she  would ant be at home hereafter on  tWednesday nights.  Luke could not understand why matters hud turned out this way unless it  ���������was that Estelle bod learned to love  enrnebody else. He knew that Fletch i  ler occasionally called at the Chincapin  !to see Frank Blair, and he must at  tbe same time Have opportunities of  'ijnceting Frank's lovely leister. But  both Fletcher and Blair were rival  suitors for tbe fair band of Miss Ger-  'tie Gibbs. the schoolteacher at Lone  fTreo, and it was not supposed that  cither ever wavered In his allegl-  innce to tbo plump little beauty. As a  matter of fact, the two rivals were  ���������close compunlons, nnd it was whie-  ipered that in this wny each kept track,  ���������of tbe other's movements.  . NeverthelesH Luke felt a flerce stab  iof .jenlouHV as Bert Fletcher emerged  tfronv the bunk house Immaculate in a  twbite shirt and wearing In bis bosom  ttbo largo yellow topaz pin be had won  ifrom Mexican Pete. His mustaches  tfwero twisted fiercely, nnd his black  ������yes sparkled maliciously as be look"  ,������d nt Luke Prentice playing solitaire  toy the light of n lantern.  ���������'Any messugeH you want to send,  flLuke?" tensed Fletcher as ho passed  toy.  Prentice lifted n dangerous eye and  ���������surveyed his companion's getup with  contempt. "You might tell Miss Gertie I can't get ovor tonight, but I'll  'bo around sure thing next Wednes-  day." he nnld. Inzlly gathering up tbo  cords nnd snapping tbera into n rub-  'bor band.  "Mias Gertie?' Fischer reddened  nnearlly. "1 didn't any I ������mn going  to Lone Tree, did 1? Bonldee. I reck-  on���������1 didn't know you'd beon pros,  pectin g a round there."  "All gnls l* alike to me." returned  ���������Luke spntentionKly. "When ono' ain't  to homo another will do Junt n������ well  ���������o long ns they'll sing nnd piny and  ninooflo mo.

Estelle sneered  openly and then flitted off to bed without even a good night  Back in the Gibbs house Luke Prentice and Miss Gertie opened tbe boxes,  of. candy and enjoyed the coutenta,  hugely, and when Luke departed Misa  Gertie tied a handful of chocolates into;  a corner of his cleanest pocket band-  kerchief.  Seven Wednesday evenings Luke  Prentice called upon Miss Gibbs. and  then the following seven Wednesdays  he rode down the Chincapin trail, but  In every instance, strange to relate, he  did oot nnd Miss Estelle at home.  The Swedish housekeeper ������yed bis.  blankly the seveuth time.  "I woden't t'ink Miss Blair be seem*  youse. Her says her ain't to home,  but her is!" she explained, with a  world of pity in ber light blue eyes.  Stebbins, muzzling the parched grass  in the dooryard. brought up his head  with a jerk as Prentice passed through  the gate. Suddenly he halted and looked back at the ranch house where he  had known many pleasant hours picketed under the trees where the herbage was green and succulent and  where lumps of sugar were tendered  bim in Esteiie's pink and white palm.  Luke dug bis spurs in Stebbina'  flanks and Sapped the reins about the  pony's ears. "Get along, you son of  Satan!" he mattered angrily. "You  trying to make more kinds of a fool out  of me than 1 naturally am? Hump  yourself!"  The pony started forward just as a  shutter opened cautiously in a second  story window and a low whistle sound- I  I ed softly across tbe yard. A soft, se- j  duetlve whistle it was. and in the old  days it always served as an invitation  to partake of a lump of sugar from  Miss Blair's band. Luke did not bear  tbe/w^stle. but Stebbins did and Instantly* turned and shot through the  gate and galloped wildly toward the  house, while Luke sawed at the reins,  mad clean through at tbe mortifying  'spectacle he was making of himself  before the round eyed Swedish woman who gaped at him around a corner  ot the bouse.  "She says she woden't b$ to borne,"  sbe mumbled excitedly as Stebbins curveted and pranced and balked and utterly refused to leave the hospitable  Blair doorstep.  Then it was that Luke Prentice  brought forth a Mexican quirt from  beneath his saddle blanket'aud cut'the  balky Stebbins.once across the flunks.  As a result be found himself sitting on  the ground ten feet away witb a badly  wrenched arm. while Stebbius whinnied sharply near the front door.  Luke dragged himself ; painfully toward a couvenlent chincapin aiid  leaned wearily against the trunk and  closed his eyes. Instantly be forgot all  his troubles. Wben he opened bis eyes  to consciousness again Estelle was  kneeling;beside bim binding bis arm in  strong cOol bandages while tbe Swedish woman held an ice cold cloth to  bis aching bend.  "I can get along all right now. Sol-  ma," said Estelle briskly, and when  the woman bud departed her volco  dropped almost to a whisper. "I'm so  sorry, Luke! It wus all ray fault, you  boo. I whistled to Stebbins. 1 could  see bo didn't want to go. Ho know  better than bis muster what bis master ought to do. Wby didn't you como  and mako me givo you an explanation,  Luke? 1 wnnted you to Jutit. boss mo  nround, only you never, never would,  and 1 thought maybe If I mado you  stay away from rao we'd both Ond  out Thoro, I'm not going to say it  all!"  Lulco Prontico aaid his part with  such good effect that ho rode away  from tho Chincapin witb a radiant  omllo on hia hnndsbmo face.  At tho forks Prontico met two dejected riders turning out of tho Lono  Troo trail. Ono wns Bert Flotehor, and  tho othor waa Estollo'a brother, Frank  Blair.  "Evening," said tnko happily. "How's  Miss Gertie Gibbs?"  Tho two stared unhnpplly nt each  other, and anally Flotehor blurted out  angrily:  "Tho littlo eatt Bho's gone ond mar*,  lied the engineer down to the nmelter  Iiouho. 1 gnvo ber a ring last week,"  bo nddod viciously.  "So did 1," said Frank Blair bitterly.   "1 nnppo#o you did, too, Luke?"  "Nnry!" protewted Luke Pi-entlea.  "I've boen ringing a hollo up to the  Chlnrnpln. Frank.

Beavers arrange their homes in a  neighborly wny to form villages and  towns. It haa been pointed out thai  they are lake dwellers for the same  reason that early races of men live-j  over the water, The chief differences  between the two, however, is thai  men built over natural ponds, where,  as the beaver mnkes a pond where h������  happens to want it. The labors of no  other animal on earth, nddo from"  man, present so many  phases as. those of the beaver.  According to Maeoun, who ha-*)  made most exhaustive studies ol  theso little animals, whole tribes of  beavers unite to In *'ld villages,  Houses, nivnriablv of two floors, bear  witness to the uniform gcniuij of thesa  architects. The pantry occupies ths  ground floor, but the upper floors ol  the beaver's domicle are reserved -lot  his hottr& of sleep and leisure.  Tlve walls at*|d upper part are re1  markably thick, sometime* measuring several 'f?et. ��������� Then, at the beginning of hard frost, the ' exterior is.  coated with a thick layer ofV mud  which immediately freezes, and has  the double advantage of perfectly  shutting out the cold air and Vol  guarding against the attacks' of wolverines.

The extent of  the dams is the mo->t striking proof  of the social habits of the beaver, for  several families must have combined,  to carry out the plans, and if individual instinct produces the results  of a general government among these  laborers, they must be influenced by  a sense of common interest as highly  developed as that of the A bees*.

A student of "social conditions tells me  tl.at the only class of laborers who command the situation are what he terms  "the servant-gin class" ' "They," he  affirms, "can make theur own terms,  can demand a raise of wa'gfs. can dictate as to the work they will do, and  their employers will accede to. their  demands rather than dispense with their  services.*'  Much of which Is true. But the servant is not alone responsible for the  existing conditions. The employer has  done a great, deal to .bring about the  state of things' which she n&wydepre-y^  -cates, and, for,, which she biimes the  employe.  ��������� -Jn' dealing with the domestic problem  are not we wo..ien lacking sometimes ia  sinceilty and in the courage of our:convictions? Theie are exceptions, I acknowledge;, and I sat recently near such  an- exception in an intelligence office.  She was interviewing a stalwart Celt,  telling her what sue required of her.  Just what her duties would be, etc.  Tii en she fixed the woman with a clear  gaze and said. "Now, what 'questions  have you to ask me?"  "Maa.n?" was the startled response.  "I say, what questions have you to ask  .c; ma? I have asked aii I wish, of you;  I have told you what I shall expect of  you^IjCI^engage you. But before*-this  matter Is definitely settled I want you  to make any inquiries you wish ana to  raise now'any objection?' you have* in  mind.

She Is not earning Van-honest'liv.ng"  when 'she takes money ^ for that which  she does not perform, or for being t" at  which she is not. If she drink's, you  have' no more right to give her cUan  .papers Chat will,admit her to another  woman's family, than you^have to- put  a menace to safetyv in the house of that  woma'n. If she is loose in her' morals,  what right ha\e you to send' her into a  home where ttfere ave your.g girls and  boys? Would I prevent her earning a  living? Yes!���������if 'in earning It she is endangering other people' It, is time we  understood that sineeiity and truth aie  the standards by which we 'must work.  We women sometimes let. weak sent-  mentality get into tlie way of our sense  of justice. An honest man would net  recommend to his neighbor the office  boy who had stolen from him. If he is  a fair man,, he will.let-his. principles of  truth and honor come-before his consideration of the individual. : Until we  w.omen do that, we. cannotyexpect to get  from our employes such service as men  get from theirs.  I do not mean that; one should not be  lenient and charitable with one wbo has  erred and is striving io do well.   But the  maid   who  drinks,   or  steals,   or  is  insolent,  or slothful,   does  not  belong to  this  type.   Give her affair  chance and  'take time to prove  her,  but when you  find (that  she is unworthy  of trust,  do  not   allow    her   to    impose    upon   your  '"neighbor   armed   with   a   certificate   of  good character signed by yourself.  "'The conscientious-reader may not believe that this kind of thing is done by  employers, but i1 is.

Try to be more careful about  cleaning It.'.* In .the depths of her heart  the servant will respect the woman who  will speak thus frankly. But remember  that lt is only kind and honest to utter  a sentence of commendation when the  girl tries to, please you. 1 recall the  look of;-gratitude -oh the face of a new  maid who had served her first company  dinner after she came'to me. When the  guests had departed I went > to the  kitchen and told her of how well cooked  everything Was, adding, "You did extremely well." The quick tears sprang  to ihe blue Irish eyes. "Oh, ma'am!"  was the surprised exclamation, /'thank,  you for saying it. I did my best,,but  I didn t suppose as you' would speak  of  it!"  Long afterward I learned from her  former employer, with whom she had  lived for two years, that she "did not  believe in.-praising a servant;"* But  I also learned that she did believe in  reprimanding sharply when one did -Hi.  It is a very poor rule that does not  work  both -ways.  After -a 11. our servants do .. not have  as easy a time as we -employers like to  fancy. To'be sure, there is the sheltered  home, snd, sometimes, a comfortable  yoom; and. usually, good fare Bui there  is the labor which,''whiie not, exactly  lasting "from sun to sun," begins before  breakfast,in the. morning, and is not  finished until the������last dish is washed  after the late dinner at night. Against  this, one. may place good wages, no expense of board or lodging, kind treatment, and one afternoon and evening  "oft" each week.  "I wish 1 had as easy a job!" sighed  a literary woiker in talking of this  matter.  Does  she?    Would  she ask  no  other  recreation for six evenings. In the: week  : than to.sit in her room and read, .write  or sew?    1 question it.  Still every kind of work Is largely  what the worker makes it.    The maid  housewives insisted upon and paid tor  "specialists," the ..conditions we.regret  -would not exist A. So do not bljume  Bridget. She Is but doing what you and  J would do���������looking for a position that  brings in the highest p<?.y with .the least  exertion. Are you or 1 above such considerations? You may be an altruist.  The Ignorant girl who has not had your  , advantages is not, nor would she know  ' what you meant if you used the word  in her hearing.  But she do s know wvhat if means to  toe "kind hearted." If you are Inclined  to doubt it. treat her fairly, and then  wa>t jjntll you are 111 or In great sorrow, or sitting at the sickbed of one Of  your dear on s. If your maid ir. like  most of her class, she will sacrifice her  "afternoon off" or, maybe.- a" night's  rest to "help vou out." Of course,  Ther-? are rnaH*" who leave in time of  trouble, but tbey are the exceptions,  not. the rule.  ���������I am not shutting my eyes ���������_ to the  evils that exist. I have seen them, and  I have suffered from them.v My china.  rr>o.   hm*  been   bi-ol-en:   my-: hous?;   too.  iias been neglected'; I, too, have had*  servants who have'lied, somevfew have  stolen, some n#ve been ill tempered,  many of them have been ungrateful.  But ,that does not alter the fact that  thevemployers of these sarnie girls are  much to blame for their faults. As  long as you, my reader, pay your maid  more than most of yjur friends can afford to pay;, as long as you "tip" her to  keep her in a good humor when you  have company; as long as you spoil  her and allow her to neglect her duties,  as long as you are afiaid to speak the  truth' to her when she does w.-ong, so  long'will her class give unsatisfactory  service. Try to bear in mind that her  training, her ideals, her aims are different from yours. Do not let a matter of  "feeling" enter into your dealings with  her But be just and kind. If you  would have her honest, sti aightforward,  dutiful, tTeat her with strict honesty,  sincerity and Justice.  When we housekeepers appreciate our  duties along these lines, a better time  will come, and it 'will be a better time  for Bridget as well as for her nominal  mistress. ,  "She will sacrifice her afternoon off to help out."  Useful Hints  M  who performs her tasks faithfully and  .well, receives often.favors that are not  "nominated in the bond," and she>  should. When you engage her, you. do  not stipulate that when you are 111 she  is to wait upon you. oook dainties' for  you, arid arrange thie family meaJe,without di3tuibing you. Yet she often does  this, and scores of little tasks that yoa  did not hire her to perform. It is,  therefore, perfectly: right that you  should allow her to go out occasionally  in the evening when it Is not her "day  out," or give her a whole Sunday otf  when you and your family run out of  town for a week-end. Again, this is but  hone3ty and justice.  This is an a.seoi specialties, and the  maids who are" willing   tb   be   "general  houseworkers'   are  few,   ond   growing  fewer;    We cannot blame- the' class fo;  this.    Who  would  cook,   wait  on  tnby  wash dishes,-make;beds, sweep and du :  if she -could  get a position to do out  cooking,   or  onlv   walling  or chamber-  work?

School closing day June 30th., was marked by a very  enjoyable afternoon to the parents of the children, and other  invited guests, when Miss Opie, school-mistress at Alice  Siding Public School, and Miss M. Moore, of Douglas  Villa,   entertained  them  to  a  very pleasant " At home."  Miss Opie, dressed in a neat costume of delicate yellow  material, assisted by Miss More wearing  a  gown  of white  net, ushered the guests into   a  parlour artistically  adorned  with wild  marguerites.    Music  and conversation  whilst  enjoying the views from the casement  windows, made  the  time fly on winged feet, after which the visitors  were invited into the dining room, where  a  bounteous  spread table,  centered by the old fashioned pink Sweet William  met the  view.   Justice having been done to the good things provided  and after more music and songs by some of the  guests, we  strolled home in the dusk of the  peaceful evening,  having  spent a most enjoyable afternoon  and evening, a pleasant  memento of a first visit to Creston.

We publish the following extract from a recent issue of  the Daily News which will he  read with interest hy all intending tobacco growers :  L. Holman, the Kelowna tobacco expert, who was engaged  by the provincial government  last spring to give a course of  lectures on the subiect at various points in the province  reached the city last night and  is a guest at the Hume.  Mi*. Holman has been engag-  in tobacco culture all his life,  at first -in Wisconsin and for  the past 18 years at Kelowna.  Near the Okanagon city he  has under cultivation 32 acres  of land, froin which he raises  j many hundreds of pounds of  Havana and Wisconsin tobacco  every year. He also operates  a factory where the raw! product from his own ranch ������nd  from those in the vicinity is  manufactured into cigars.  "I think from what I have  seen and been told/' said Mr.  Holman last night, "that tobacco can be < commercially  grown in this district. The eh-  mate is certainly suitable and  [ have no doubt, that the soil  would grow tobacco well. Of  course the most suitable soil is  black or sandy loam, but the  plant can be raised on many  other varieties."  Asked concerning the modus  operandi at his ranch at Kel:;  owna, Mr. Holman said that  the seed was first sprouted and  then sown in cold frames between April 1 and Aprxll5th.  About June   1   the Havana  plants are set, when they    are  about four inches high   at    a  distance   of three feet by eighteen inches apart*,, while the Wisconsin plants are set out at a  distance   of three feet by   two  feet apart.   They are cultivated  for three weeks and at the end  of four or five weeks the flowers appear.   These flowers   are  then picked off and thrown away, while'the leaves are thinned  out until there are from 18   to  22 on the Havana plants  and  from 12 to 15 on������the Wisconsin  variety.   ITrom 12 to 20   days  after the flowers are taken off  the plants aro ripe for the harvesting ond they are cut    and  taken to a shed, where thoy remain   for three months.   They  are thon graded and token to a  sweat   houao, whero they    aro  kept for three months in artificial heat and then allowed  to  cool   off for six months'.    The  leaves   are   then ready to    bo  manufactured*  "I have ti groat belief in the  future of tobacco growing in  this province," mniicl Mr Holman.

COPVRlGBT. 1909, BV BRENTANCS  (Continued.)  The unhappy woman soooeo. sne  struck vyitb desperate nauds at tbe  door which Bernier oi>*ued to us.  She motioned me to enter the Httle  parlor at tbe right, which was just  outside the bedchamber ot Old Bob.  She took both uty hands In ders and  aaid in a voice wbicbvi snail never tor-  get*.    Ay: 'Xx -y:':Ay^ A A   .,-;���������.  **Youv are my; bbyV frlerin. lell him  that he is pot th^ .only on*5 who has  suffered." And ahe added wun a sob  wbicb .shook her whole frame:  ��������� "Why will be Insist ou not telling  me the truth?"  I bad not a word ro say. W hat could  1 have aiijswered': I had breinued the  perfume of tbe Lady in Black;  Yes: she treated me as an old friend.  She toid nie everything that 1 aiready  knew in a tew sentences as piteous  and as simple as a mother's love itself, and she toid >-me other culngs  which Rouletabille had kept a ������ecret  ���������from me. The tviationsuip between  them bud been guessed by the one as  surely as by the other, feed by v sure  Instinct, Mme. Darzac bad resolred to  take means to learn who was this uouletabille who had saved her from death  and who .was or the age of her own  soo and wbo resembled the lad wtiom  she bad mourned as dead. And since  her^arrivai at Mentone a letter nad  reajched her containing the proof tnat  Rouletabille bad lied to her in regard  to bis early life and bad never set toot  in any school at Bordeaux. Irauieci-  atalysbe bad sought the youth and  had asked for an explanation, but ne  bad burried away without replying.  ���������*Wby did ibe not throw himself intc  my armsVwh'eb1 opened tbem to bim V  she moaned. "Ab. my God J If be refuses to bo Larsati's son, will be aeve.  consent to be mine'*"  1 was almost beside myselt. I feisse*  her bands and entreated pardon toi  Rouletabille. Here was the result oi  my friend's schemes to save her pain.  Under the pretest ot saving her from  maae up for all the years they bad  lost: I beard bim murmur, "You know,  mamma, it was not true that 1 stole!"  Hut where was Bernier? I entered  the lodge from tbe left, for I wished to  know the weaning of the cry and of  the shot wbicb 1 bad beard.  Mere Bernier was at the back of the  room, which was lighted only by a  tiny taper. Her features were distorted with fear.  "Some one tired off a pistol!" 1 said.  "What has happenedV"  "1 do not know." she responded.  And at tbat moment  1 heard some  one open tbe door of the tower, and  fere Bernier stood on tbe threshold.  "Bernier!   Wbat bas happened?"  "Oh. nothing very serious, I am glad  to say.  An accident without any importance whatever.   Darzac while placing  bis revolver on  the stand   beside his  bed accidentally Sred it off.   Madame  naturally  was frightened and scream-  ed. and as the window, of their room  was open she thought tbat you and M.  Kouletabille  might  have heard  some-  thing and Astarted but to tell you that  it was nothing/'7     ?V  '"Daf-zae'iias cotne iu. then?"  "He got here almost as soon as yon  bad left the tower. M. Sainclair.   And  the shot was tired almost immediately after he entered his bedroom.    Ybu  can guess that 1 bad a pretty fright!  1 rushed to the door.    Darzac opened  it  himself.    Happily  no one  was injured."  "Did  Mme.  Darzac go  to  her own  room as s^on as I left the tower?"  "At once. She beard M. Darzac when  he cauie in and followed him directly  to  their  apartments.'  They   went  In  almost at the same moment."  "And Darzac���������is he still in his room?"  "Here he 1$ now."  1  turned  and   saw   Robert   Darzac  Despite the gloom of the place I saw  that his face was ghastly  pale.    He  made tae a sign and then said very  cala\ly and quietly:  "Listen. Sainclair!    Bernier told you  about onr  little accident.    It is  hot  worth  mentioning to any one onless  some one should speak of it to you.  The others perhaps have not heard the  shot,    tt would be useless to frighten  all these good people.   Don't you think  so?   Now I have a little favor to ask  of you.    It is only to persuade Roule-  \ ta bille to go tc bed-    When he is gone  I my wife will calm herself and will try  i to get the rest that she needs. Every one  \ ot us has need of rest���������and silence."  |     1 pressed his hand witb a fqrcewbich  l attested my sentiments toward bim. 1  j was persuaded that both ne and Ber-  | nier were concealing something from  i us���������something very grave, '-'��������� ���������  ..    . |     Darzac re-eptered   his room, and I  Larsan be bad plunged a knife into ber ��������� i went to find JtSooietabUle in the sitting  heart.    1 felt as though 1 had no wish { room 0f oi<j &oti.  to  know-any   more of  the story,    li  went out of the square tower cursing j  Rouletabille roundly. I went to toe  court to look for nim. but found it deserted.  At the postern gate Mattoni aad  come to take the 10 o'clock watch. 1  saw; a light in Rouieta bille's room, and  I hastened up tbe rit-Kety stairway ot  the new castle and quickly found myself outside bis door. 1 opened it without knocking.   Rouletabille looked np.  I told bim all tbat I bad heard and  my opinion of bim tor bis actions.  "Sbe didn't tell you everything, ray  ���������friend," be replied coldly. "Sbe did  not tell you tnat she forbade me to  touch tbat man. Do you Know wbat  she said to me yesterday? Sbe ordered me to go away. Sbe would rather  die than see uie take issue against my  father.''  And he laughed, laughed! Sucb  laughter I hope not to near again.  Hia face was uot a pleasant sight to  see as be uttered tbe words, not suddenly it seemed to be transformed.  "Sbe ia afraii tor me," he said softly. "And l���������l aro alrald tor ber���������omy  for her. And I do uot unow my lather.   Ab. God help me'"  At that moment tne souud ot a snot  rang out ou toe ingot, roi lowed by a  cry ot mortal agony. Ah. it was again  tha cry tbat 1 had heard two years  ago in tbe "inexplicable gallery." uouletabille tottered; toeu ne bounded to  tbe open window with a despairing  ���������burst ot anguish:  "Mother, mot ner, mother!"  1 leaned after him und threw my  *rmsnround his body,dreading wont he  might attempt Quickly he turned on  roe, threw me off aud precipitated himself wildly through corrinors. apartments, stairways and courts toward  tbe accursed tower from which nod  come tbat same death cry mat wo  both bad beard a moment seo aud  also two years before, wneu it nud resounded through the "inexpacaoie gallery.^'  I was still tbere when the door of  too square tower opened, ana in its  frame of light there nppenreo (be form  of tbe Lady lu Black. ane wee standing upright, living and uunarmed in  spite ot tbat cry ot dentn. but ber  pale nnd gbnwtly vtwnro reflected a  terror liko tbat of dcutu itself.

And tbe Bernier*? l saw nel*  ther of them*  Roaietnblllo and tbe Lady In Blnek  wftnt Into Old Bob'* parlor.  And they were there alone, clasped  tn each other's arms, repenting over  and over nfjalu. ������������������Morher!"' himI "My  HUH* oner And then they murmured  broken sentence*, print**** without cud.  with the divine foolishness of a mother and her child, Aud then how they  embraced  each  otuur.  us   tliouicli  to  Bnt upon tbe threshold of the apartment 1 jostled against tbe Lady in  Black and ber son, who were passing  out. Tbey were both so silent and  wore an expression so unexpected to  me, wbo bad overheard their exclamations of love and joy only a few moments before, tbat 1 stood before them  without saying a word or making a  movement. The extremity which* in-  ouced Mme. Darzac to leave Rouleta-  biiie so soon under sucb extraordinary  circumstances as those which had attended their reunion puzzled me greatly. Mathllde pressed a kiss opon the  lad's forehead and murmured "Good  night, my darling," in a voice so soft,  sc sweet and at the same tij^aie so solemn that it seemed tome tbat it must  resemble tbe leave taking of one who  was about to die. Rouletabille witb-  oni answering bis mother took my arm  and led me out of the tower. He was  trembling like a leaf.  it was tbe Lady In Black herself  wno closed the door of the square tower. I was sure tbat something strange  was passing within those walls. Tbe  account of the pistol shot which bad  been given me satisfied me not at all.  Wo were at tbat moment not far  from a wludow in which a light was  still burning and wbicb opened upon  tbe sitting room of Old Bob and sloped  ont upon the sea. This window was  not closed, and lt waa this, doubtless,  which bad permitted us to bear so  distinctly in spite of the thickness of  tbe walls of tbo tower tbe pistol shot  and toe cry ot agony tbat bad followed It. The storm was past, but  tbe waters were not yet appeased, and  tbe waves broke on tbe rocks of tbe  peninsula witb a violence that would  have rendered tbe approach of any  vessel impossible. The thought of a  vessel crossed my mind, becauso 1  believed for un Instant tbat 1 could  seo tbe shadow of a vessel of somo  sort nppeuriuR or dlsnppeurlng in the  gloom,   Bat what could ic bo?  We stood there motionless for more  than live minutes botoro wo nenra a  sigh���������a groan, deep as an expiration,  Uko a moan oi agony; a heavy sob,  like tbe Inst breath of a departing  soul���������which reuchod our ears from  tbat window and brought tho sweat  ot terror to our brows. And then  nothing more���������nothing except tbo intermittent sobblugs of the seu.  And suddenly thu light lu tbo window went out.

Somo  ono wna dying there in that towerl  Some ono whom they hud hidden.  Wny? And who? Borne' one who was  neither M. Durcue nor Mmo.

CHAPTER XII.  sigh of agony, we llateued. nou-  ietabille poiuted out tbe window ot hia  own room in the new castle, which was  still illuminated. 1 understood it was  necesaary to extinguish tbis light and  return. Five minutes later 1 wus back  again witb Rouieta bflle. There was  no other light in the Court of Uie Bold  than the ray which told of the vigil ot  Old Bob in tbe basement of tbe round  tower and tbe light at tbe gardener's  postern where Mattoni was sentinel. ���������  1 had scarcely time to steal back to  Rouletabille betore we distinctly heard  tbe door of tbe square tower moving  softly upon Its binges. As 1 attempted  to lean farther out of my corner and  see farther down into the court Rouletabille pushed me back and allowed  only bis own bead to look over the  wall. But 1 looked over his bead, and  this is wbat 1 saw:  First, fere Bernier. perfectly recognizable in spite ot the darkness, who  came out of tbe tower. In the middle*  of tbe court be paused, looked up at  the side where our windows were and  made a signal, which we Interpreted as  a sign that all was well. To whom  was this signal addressed? Rcui-nabilis  leaned still farther over, but he quickly  retreated, pushing me back with bim.  When we dared to look-out In tho  court again uo one wus there. But  in a few moments we again beheld  Pere Bernier. Aud then we beard  something * which climbed under the  arcb of tbe gardener's postern, snd,  Pere Bernier reappeared with* the black  and sottly rolling form of a carriage  beside him. We could see that it was  the little English cart, drawn by Toby,  AJrtbur Ranee's .pony.  Pere Bernier, reaching at length the  oubliette, raised again his face toward our windows and then, still holding Toby by the bridle, came to tbe  door of tbe square tower. Leaving the  little equipage before the door, be en-  V Eered the tower. ; A few ipouaenca passed by, which seemed to us like hours,  particularly to Rouletabille. who was  seized with a fit of trembling which  shook his frame like a leaf. <  Pere Bernier reappeawd. He crossed the court alone and returned to the  postern. A beautiful jnoon had Arisen,  which stretched its radiance across the  court. The two persons who came put  of the tower and approached the carriage appeared so surprised that iney  almost recoiled at what tbey saw. But  we could hear the Lady in Black repeat in low, firm tones: "Courage, Robert!   You must be brave now!"  AUd Darzac replied in a voice which  froze my blood, "It is not courage  which I lack!" He was bending over  something which be dragged before  bim and then raised in his arms as  though it were a heavy burden and  tried to slip under tbe long seat of the  cart. Rouieta bille's teeth were chattering. To move this sack Darzac was  making the greatest efforts. Leaning  against the wall of^tne tower, the  Lady in Black watched* vfaim without  offering any assistance. And suddenly, at the moment that M. Darzac had  succeeded in loading the sack into the  cart, Matbilde pronounced these words  In a voice shaken with horror:  "it is moving!" V y  "It is the end!" said Darzac, wiping  bis forehead witb his pocket handkerchief. Then be took Toby by the bridle and started off, making a sign to  theLudy in Black, but she^V still leaning7 against the wail, as though Rbe  bad been placed there for some punishment, made no signal in reply. Darzac seemed to us to be quite calm. His  figure straightened up; bis-step grew  firm. One might almost say that his  manner was thut of an honest man  wbo has done his duty. Still, with tbo  greatest precaution, he disappeared  with bis carriage at the postern of the  gardener, and the i<ad.v in Black went  back into tbe square tower.  <To be continued.)

Mr. Clarence I. de Sola of.Montreal  is the head nnd shoulders of the  Zion-Nt movement in Canada, the  movement to repopnlnte Palestine  with members of the Hebraic faith.  A little' le.-s than twelve years ago  the fir^t Zionist convention in Canada  wn������ held It took place on a bitterly  cold stormy winter..'night in 1898, Jn  the old Cndieux street synagogue.

The gas? had frozen;  and the building was but dimly lighted oy n few -.candles stuck in the  mouths- of old bottles. Amid euc-h  dim nnd discouragih.surroundings  the Zionist movement wa* born in  Canada.     Mr.  de  Sola  proposed   the  VARSITY'S QUEER LEGACY.  President  Falconer    '-*ol    s   Pleasant  Surprise and a Handsome Gift.  At the Alumni dinner ih Toronto  recently. President Falconer related  an interesting s>tory about ������������������ the way  Toronto University received its latest  legacy. , He wns getting ready one  afternoon not long ago to leave the.  city and, like most men who want  to catch a train, had very little time  at his disposal. A visitor was announced���������a Mrs. Marfleet, whose  name was qtiite unfamiliar to him.  The. president told the maid to ask  her if she could not come to see hini  later in the week. However the lady  insisted that she wanted to see him  then and now. "I've come a thousand  miles to meet the president of Toronto University/'  said   she.  So President Falconer weut down  to tiie reception room to interview  his visitor. The lady explained that  she was an American, whose> husband  had died recently. "My husband."  said she. "was during his lifetime  greatly interested in Canada and was  particularly impressed with the fine  work being'done hy the University of  Toronto. He followed its progress  with the deepest interest and often  expressed the wish that he could do  something to associate his name with  it. He died'intestate, but, knowing  his wishes in the matter, I want to  offer you some money, which might  be used in any way you thought well  to perpetuate his memory in your  university.    Will  you  accept $5,000?"  The president promised to lay the  matter before the board of governors,  Assuring -bier that the board would  hardly be likely to refuse so generous  .ah offer. It has been decided that  the m&iey 'thu&> romantically donated  shall be used to found a lectureship  to be known as the Pearson-Kirkman-  Marfleety lectureship. Every three  Ve'ars some prominent man, preferably an American, will be secured to  deliver a series of lectures on some  [ phase of A public or international life  The first lecture will probably b<  given next year.

One of the most interesting collections of burglars' tools is that possessed by Canon Horsley. rector of  St. Peter's, Walworth. England, who  years ago was chanlain at Clerken-  well and Pentonville. . A short time  ago he took to a bazaar a big assortment of skeleton keys, jemmies, crowbars, and a photograph of Charles  Pence, once a member of his "congregation." The ennon is an authority  on burglaries, and- tells a good story  of n buralnr who used'to.carry pieces  of doctored liver for silencing dogs.  One night he entered a house, saw n  dog's staring eyes in the hull, nnd at  once produced the liver. The animnl  did not move, und on close inspection  the hurglnr discovered that the dog  wns stuffed. "Here's a joke I" he  thought, nnd laughed bo unronr'.oui'-  ly thnt the members of the household  awoke and he was caught.  ne  Canada's Trade Commissioner.  The report issued in 1907 by Mr.  Richard Grigg. the Trade Cumm.sslon-  er to Canada, on the trade of tne  Dominion attracted a great deal of attention.

The Bridegroom Model Even Held His  Breathing Apparatus.  Sir Luke Fildes>, who has been commissioned by the County of Surrey.  England, to paint a copy of bis portrait of Edward VII. in Buckingham  Palace for a county memorial to the  late King, is one of the favorite paiut-  ers of royalty, and has done splendid  portraits not only of the late King  Edward,but of Queen Alexandra aud  the present King and Queen.  Sir Luke first gained repute as a.  painter of English an_d Venetian ������gb-(  jects, afterwards lurning his attention  to portraits. His first.picture, "Fair,  Quiet, and .Sweet Rest," was exhibited at the Academy thirty-nine years  ago, and is separated by an interval  ot thirty years from the state portraits  of King Edward. His celebrated pic-"  ture, "The Doctor," took the artistic  world by storm, and is regarded as  one of .the most striking df modern  works.      - ' '  Sir Luke tells an amusing 9tory of  an inquisitive visitor to a picture gallery. Observing a man standing in  rapt attention before a certain painting, the visitor ventured to put the  query: "Did you paint that picture,  sir?" "Paint that picture?" echoed the  enraptured one contemptuously. "Not  me.   1 made the frame!"  Sir Luke also has a good story of a  rustic whom he employed as a model  for the bridegroom in "The Village  Wedding." Soon alter the drawing began, the artist noticed that his. model  became very pale. He made him rest,  and presently work was resumed.' The  model soon became more ghastly than  ever. "You don't seem well," >aid  bir Luke. "I'm a'right, zur," answered the model, "only for holding me  breath so long!" The poor rustic  imagined it was necessary for the- portrait to be taken, that he should hold  his breath the while!  The picture was painted for Mr. (afterwards Sir) Henry Tate. Sir Luke  bad thought over the subject, for several years before he made a siari, although eventually it proved the quickest painted picture lie had'ever done.  The artist traveled to many places,  from Devon to Inverness, to get thoroughly acquainted with the character  of the cottages and people. He made  many sketches, and on hia return to  town had the room built up exactly to  size at the end of his studio. Even  'the massive rafters shown in the picture  were  there.

In high police circles'woman's trait  of courage that exceeds her physical  strength i3 regarded as no new manifestation in the proverbially weaker  sex. " * -- .���������fl^-'-^���������w--. .���������  . v.-i,v-gsa   <  "Ever since I became associated  with police work," j,aid one experienced officer. "I have noticed that womea  seemed always ready to help any one  in apparent difficulties. Perhaps be^  cause they .are weak themselves they  ars disposed readily to help the ' ~ak-  er ��������� side without thought" of consequences to themselves."  A highly interesting explanation oi  this undoubted bravery' in women was  vouchsafed by J. W. Slaughter, tho  eminent English sociologist, who assigned female courage largely to the  maternal intinct.  "Nothing on earth," he said, "can  be more ferocious, more dangerous,  and more courageous than the female  animal defending her yonng. The  maternal instinct in woman is in itself an, inspiration to courage. You  will never see a woman on the edge  of a crowd taking the side of the uppey  dog. Women, moreover, act more d'i*  rectly than men. They are more impulsive  and  less calculating.  "We are accustomed to think of women as afraid of this or that, but it  is because they have not really had  experience. Courage is, after all, a  matter of experience. One' is not afraid  of things one is used to or knows how  ���������to deal with."  Mrs. W. Arnold, Edmonton, Alta.,  writes:���������"Kindly send me a box of  Baby's Own Tablets. They have been  invaluable to me and I really do not  know how I ever would have got along  without them. Baby was poorly; his  digestion was bad and he was constipated. I gave him the Tablets and  they made a fine healthy boy of "him.  Now, whenever he is cross or troubled  with constipation, I always give him  the Tablets and they relieve him right  away. I tried a lot of other medicine  but nothing soemed to agree with him  till I got the Tablets. I would not be  without them." The testimony of  Mrs. Arnold is that of thousands of  other mothers. Everyone who ever  uses Baby's Own Tablets have words  of praise for them. The Tablets are  sold by medicine dealers or by mail  at 25 cents a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockviiie, Ont.   _ ���������._/   "Maybe she "won't like me any  more, but I can't help it."

Mr.  btaunton has been in the pubhs eye a  good deal,  and  is  fair game  for the  book canvasser,  who is, however, h-  j able to disappointment.   Mr. Staunton  tells  with some  enjoyment of a  man  who onoe called upon nun for a short  bketch of his hie,  saying  he wanted  to use it in a book which was to give  a short account of the prominent men  in the "country.

Staunton is a native of Sputhamp-  >un, County Bruce, where he was born  n 1858:  he *went to school in Soutb-  lmpton, in St. Mary's College", Montreal,' and  at  Upper  Canada  College,  <vhere he graduated head of the class  md won tne gold medal.

"During August last, I went to  Montreal to consult a specialist as  I had been suffering terribly with  Stone in the Bladder.  He decided to operate but said the  stone was too large to remove and  too hard too crush. I returned home  and was recommended by a friend  to try GIN PILLS.  They relieved the pain. I took two  boxes and went back to the specialist. He said the stone was smaller  but he could not remove it although  he tried for two hours and a half. I  returned home and continued to take  GIN PILLS, and to my great surprise  and joy, passed the stone.  GIN   PILS   are   the best  medicine  in the  world  and   because  they  did  me so much good, I will recommend  them all the rest of my life." 46  J.
