Never bad tbe image oi old Bob and  that of Larsan been so Inextricably  confounded in our restless spirits as  since Rouletabille bad found "tbe oldest dagger known to tbe human race"  dripping witb tbe blood of Beruier.  Mme. Editb bad at once realized tbat  henceforth tbe fate ot Old Bob lay in  tbe bands of Uouletabille. Aud mere-  fore Mme.

Alcae. Editb trembled tor Old Bod ana  ior berseit.'  And tbe incriminating fact remainec  that there had Own nothing any wbere  around tbe corpse ot Bernier* but the  stone knife whi<*b old Bob bad stoleu!

And she showed  we a tiny revolver wbicb was hidden  ln her gown. ,  "Is.it  actual   truth   that  you   aro  j ready to defend me?" she demanded.  ; turning her beautiful eyes full  upon  my own.  "1 am ready."  "Against your friend even?"  "if it should be necessary," I answered, with a sigh, passing my band  across my forehead.  "Very well; 1 believe you." she answered,    "ln  that case  1   will  leave  you here for a few minutes.   You will  guard this door for me."  And she pointed to the door bebind  which Old Bob was resting. Then she  ran out of the room. Wbere wus she  going? She confessed to me later.  She was going to look for Prince Galitch.   Oh. woman, woman!  She bad scarcely disappeared under  the arch when Rouleiabille and M.  Darzac entered the room. They had  heard all tbat bad passed. Rouletabille  ���������KtiraM eed~ttr-"Tifo'��������� *sirte~-snrei���������told���������ore"  quietly that be was aware that 1 bad  betrayed him.  "You are using a large word, Rouieta bille!" 1 exclaimed. "You know that  1 am not in tbe habit of betraying auy  one. Mine. Edith is really very uiucb  to be pitied, and you do uot pity her  enough, my friend."  "An, well, you pity her too much."  1 started to make some reply, but  Kouletabille cut sbort my woras witb  a dry gesture.  "1 ask you only one thing���������only one,  you understand. It is that, no matter  wbat may happen���������no matter what  may happen���������you shall not address one  word to either M. Darzac or to myself."  "That will be a very easy thing to  promise." 1 replied, foolishly Irritated,  and 1 turned my back upon hini.  But at tbe same moment the officers  cousin*'' out of the csstie call^^d tc  us. The inquest was at an end. There  was oo doubt, in their eyes, after the  deoiarariou ot tbe doctors, that the affair bad been an accident, and tbat  was rhe verdict which they telt obliged  to render. . Darzac and Rouletabille  accompanied them to the outer gate.  .As l stood leaning on n������y elbows at  the window 1 suddenly beam a sound  which fell  opon  tbe evening air like  Edtth, whom all these prepuiatiout*  had disturbed more**; than any onu.else.  "I entreat Mine. Darzac to join me in  imploring these gentlemen to do nothing until Arthur's return."       A  v A  The Lady iu Black had no opportunity to intervene, for before Mme.  Edith finished speaking we- heard a  loud noise outside the door qf the corridor. A knock cakue at the door, and  we heard the voice of Arthur Ranee  begging us to open immediately."'..He  cried:  "I have brought the pin with ythe  ruby head!"  Rouletabille opened the door.    '  "Arthur Kanee. you are come then  at last!" he exclaimed.  Edith's husband seemed plunged In  the deepest- melnucnoly.  "What have you to tell tne? What  has happened? Some new misfortune?

Not a single minute passed after  jbat when 1 saw Mme. Edith rush into  the room and hurry to me as though 1  were her only refuge.

"Before nis death Bernier accused  Frederic Larsan." answered M. Dar-  sac.  "Do you mean to say by that that  he accused Old Hob?" interrupted  Kabce tndiguaiitiy. "i will not suffer  that.

The  ing at the others ������n<i bad not lost  sight of each other while some one  was killing Bernier a few steps away,  so it was impossible to beuere that  the killing could have beeu done by  any other than the victim.  To this the examine magistrate,  greatly interested, replied by inquiring whether any nf us bad reason to  suspect any motive for suicide on the  part of Bernier. to wnicn Houletablllf  answered that the supposition of suicide might easily he laid aside aud  tbat of accident substituted for it.  The stone, which might have attracted his attention by its strange form,  might have been picked up by Pere  Bernier. and if he nad happened to  slip and fall while holding it in bis  hand everything would be explained,  and very simply. Pere Bernier undoubtedly must hnve thus unfortunately fallen upon this triangular hint,  which bad pierced bis bearu  One of tbe physirluns summoned tc  care for Old Bob was culled, and be  decided thut Bernler's fatal wound  was caused by tbe dint.  As to Mme.

Edith suddenly seized mc by the  hand and cried out:  "Do not leave me!

As she took my hand so confidingly  and held it for a moment In ber own  I felt tbat I was for Mme. Editb with  all my heart and soul, and I assured  her that she might rely upon my devotion.  Itoulttablllc never failed to cast a  glance Id our direction every time ho  had tbe opportunity. *  "Ah, he Is watching ub!" exclaimed  Mme. Edith.

All three were  armed witb muskets and placed tnetn-  seives iii silence lief ore tbe door, where  they stood with military precision  while tbey received from the lips of  Rouletabille the order to let no person  go out from tbe old' chateau, luaith  was overwhelmed with terror and demanded ot Mattoni and Waiter, both  ot whom were greatly artacaea to ber,  what,their presence signibed uud what  their weapons threatened; ���������ut. to tny  great astonishment, jthey returned no  answer.

It is  quiie unlikely that tbe lad himself..  who ls ould to inherit King Edward's  eye for beauty and Queen Alexandra's tact aud artistic temperament,  will have much of a voice in the selection of a bride.  The English nation prefers that its  royal family marry In Queen Victoria s  family connection. The czarina, who is  Queen Victoria's granddaughter, has a  daughter,   tbe   Grand   Duchess   Olga.  ._..������,   ���������������   .-*..���������   ni.*������.        tnM_ii....   *._..������������,.**  nut*    an    ui'w    niAircu.        *2Ufill?.u    iv^ailj  has before happily intermarried with  the Russians, the mother ot the crown  princess of- Roumania having been a  Russian grand duchess. While Austria has several eligible archduchesses,  the possibilities; of such a match are  remote, owing to religious differences.  Many persons think that the kaiser  would like to arrange an alliance between his daughter. Princess. Victoria  Louise, and tbe heir of England, for  he is most ambitious for her; his favorite child, and available crowned,  beads or heirs to thrones are scarce.  With her mother: she will attend the  coronation, and the young people will  then bave. a chance to become acquainted.  A ruler of the.

She. is colonel  of the Hussars of the Bodyguard  and wears her skull and crossbones  badge with as jaunty an air as any  young officer. Her royal highness Is  full of fun nnd high sr'rlts and is devoted to the companionship of. Prince  Oscar and Prince Joachim, though nel-  ���������{Jier of them is in her regiment. All  the princes are in the kaiser's wonderful-foot guard regiment. The fact  that the fJermau princess has so many  of the housewifely virtues to which  Queen Mary attaches importance will  doubtless have weight when ber influence is to be cast into the balance in  selecting a consort for her son.  |ENGU8H7#^m0JlC POETBY.

It is the nerve  centre of our great and complex de--;  tective system, which controls the cur-A  -rents- ixadiatiRg-������,ll-������hs-v;<xld-<tvez~ fcf -  tne discovery of crime; and it ia in  this secret chamber that the mysterious Council of Seven hold*; their meet*  ings to .unravel vthe tangled skeins oi  tragedy.  :''':' .'.  This council has not long been is  existence; in fact, it is practically uny  known to the outside world. It is only  a. short time' since it occurred to the  authorities of, New Scotland Yard!  that, in place of casual conferences  b'etween,.detectives engaged in the so*  lution of some problem of crime, it  would be-well to-appoint a body of  their cleverest V detectives ��������� men of  acute and astute brains, with lon$.  experience of crime and criminals���������i  to combine their efforts in solving the-  principal mysteries; and,, as might be  expected, the plan has worked admirably. .'  '���������',  The greatest care has;naturally been*  taken  in  choosing  men. for   this  responsible wprk. It was important thai  i the council should, as far as possible,  cover the whole range of crime.   The  detective who has specialized in murder  or burglary  mayyknowv little' yoiy  6ay,  coiners -and   beg^iifg-ietters  im-A  posters, and thus the leading expertV  in each of the principal branches of  crime: was chosen ������������������ men who know  practically  all  that  is  to  be  known  about their own branch and its professors, and whose names even are ������j  terror  to  evil-doers  the   whole  world  over.  But let us see how this council  works. Suppose that a mysterious  murder has taken place in London.  WVithin a few minutes after it has I  been reported to the nearest police  station the detective inspector and his  assistants are on the spot making investigations. Meanwhile the news has-  been flashed to New Scotland Yard;  and almost before the local men have  well commenced their inquiries ������  member of the council���������the man whoser^  special province it is���������appears on "the  scene and takes charges o������ the operations.  If  the  problem  is  a fairly  sample-  one, as it often is, and the murderer'  is speedily run to earth, the. services*-  of  the council  are  naturally  not  required.   But if there, is no sufficient]]  clue to the assassin, or he has made:;  his   escape   good,   the   council   is   at.  once* summoned, and.takes the case its  hand.' .���������'���������  And who are the members of the secret   council?    Naturally,   they   vary  from time to tjjhe, due to retirements  and  other  causes,  but  the  principaiA  members  have  so  far  remained  thee  Big   Derby   Sweepstake.  This year the great. Calcutta Turf  Club sweepstake oh the Derby was  worth ������66,666, no less than ������16,666  more than tlie previous best attained  last year. On that occasion Captain  H. T. Raban, of the Indian army, drew  Lemberg, drawing ticket No. 92,211,  for wniua he paid 14 snillings. Within half an hoar of his being advised  by cable that he had drawn the favorite he had negotiated with a' London  syndicate, who purchased a half  snare in the lucky ticket for ������7.500.-  Captain Raban  won  ������33,000 in all.  xs early a quarter "of a million tickets  are bought annually in this, the greatest sweepstake in the world. The  tickets, which cost 14s. each, are  keenly competed for. Sometimes syndicates buy up thousands, and pool  the result. Of the total amount subscribed the chance of the winner takes  40 per cent., the second 20 per cent.,  and the third TO per cent. The other  starters divide 10 per cent, between  them, while a further 10 per cent,  goes to the -drawers of non-starters  left in the race at the time the sweep  closes. A final 10 per cent, goes to  defray expenses. - Needless to say, romance has.abounded in the history of  the sweep, which originated as a small  private affair at the' Calcutta Turf  Club.. ., 7A .  ,  '*....

King's Wagon Journey. ���������  King Lewanika, the paramount chief  of Barotseland, who is the donor of  a Sitatunga. deer to the King's South  African collection of animals in London, was present' at the last coronation and the inconveniences which he  underwent in passing through South  African territories on that occasion  left a very bad impression upon his  mind.  No fewer than five weeks were occupied in making the journey by ox-  wagon to the Zambesi River, and the  much-traveled king, who during his  stay in London had been accommodated with every comfort at'a well-known  hotel in the West End, was then 300  miles from his capital and homo.  HiB Majesty was accompanied by  Col. Colin Harding, tho commandant  pf the Barotseland Police,,who has had  the unique experience of having been  attacked at one and the same time by  nine lions, soma of which he killed.  When Lord Belborne visited the King  at Livingstone hih lordship was presented witu a tame hippopotumus,  and subsequently a big-gnme drivo  was arranged in his honor; During  his visit to London King Lowanika did  most of the sights of the metropolis.  dltlrens "bunted.'1  ' Tho ancient; oaremony of riding tho  bounds at Nqwbiggin, Northumberland, England, was followed by tho  "dunting" of two new freeholders at  the: historical "dunting" stone on tho  moor. .For tho first time in Uvl������B  memory one of tlio recruits wus*a  lady. .They woro seis-ed by stalwart  men and carried face uppermost to  tho stone, and "duntod ��������� gently  struck 'against the Btoue���������throo times.

Captain Hardr-us Lloyd, the famous  polo player, was talking about the  oesuation of Hogging at tho great English publio sohool of Eton.  "I. am glad,!' he said, "that flogging  is now done away with. Eton'boys  lined to suffer a good deal from, the  birch. There was one Kton master  in the seventies who flogged eo so-  vcrely that his death, when he came  to dio, wus announced In tho papers  among tbo shipping news.

Apart from his long experience of crime and its professors, he*  is a bom detective, if ever.there wav  one. So intuitively clever is he that-  it iB said he can tell, after a few minutes' conversation with a criminal, of  Awhat particular branch-he is a s,pe>  oialistfi and his resource and tenacity  are jusY as'wonderful as his instinct  for discovering clues.  ; After Sir Melville, who controls the"  council, its principal member is Superintendent Forest, whose fame an<3  prowess as a detective are world-wide.

The news that the fire wardens are now issuing burning permits, to land clearers, will be welcomed throughout  this district. Those of our readers who have complained  aboat the severity of the regulations, and they are many,  will join us in their Shanks for this relief from a genuine  grievance. v  The Central Conservative, and Liberal Party Conventions, have now been held, and the respective candidates in  the persons of A, S. Goodev*; M P., of Rossland, and Dr.  Kisg of Cranbrook, having been duly entered, the active  campaign is on.  In Mr. A. S. Goodeve, the Conservatives possess a tried  and experienced man, who has already demonstrated his  capacity in the Dominion Parliament, and there is little  wbubt that he will again carry the Conservative flag to  victory.   ..;,  TThe greatest danger liei| in over-confidence. There is  ss������ disputing the fact that Dr. King is a strong candidate, of  great personal popularity and who by virtue of hist business  connections and standing in the Province, is in a position to  make a good fight. We bejieve the fruit growing commu-  aty as a whole will support A. S. Goodeve, and vote against  Reciprocity, but there are many voters independent of the  fruit industry and who, unless convinced by the facts as  can only be done by an active and well planned campaign  of education as to the evils of the proposed agreement, will  ���������either not vote at all, or may vote the wrong way.  ��������� It should be rememberer!, that a vote unpolled, is a vote  lost, in a spirit of over-cojnfidence, clever generals and  Jttuiny a gallant army have gone down to defeat, and every  effort should bt made in this portion of the constituency, to  educate the electors, and poll the last rote against reciprocity  Conservative Policy.  The Liberal-conservative party gives its pledge to carry  out the following policy if returned to power:���������  i A thorough reorganization of the methods by which  She public expenditure is expended, Ihe increac^ in. what  is known as ordinary controllable expenditure from  J#i������5oo,ooo in 1896, to nearly $74,000,000 in 1911 is proof  ���������f extravagance beyond any possible defence.  % Granting of the natural resources, to the prairie  pt^rinces.  3 Construction of Hudson Bay Railway and its opera  tion by an independent commission.  4 Control and operation by state of terminal elevators.  5 Necessary encouragement for establishing and carrying  ���������lithe chilled meat industry.  6 Establishment of a permanent tariff commission.  7 The granting of substantial asRistance towards the  Improvement of public highways.  8 The extension of free rural mail delivery.  ���������9   Extension ot civil service, reform.  10 Granting of liberal aid to provinces for purposes of  supplementing and extending the work of agricultural  education, and for improvement of agriculture.  And lastly, we pledge ourselves to a course of policy,  tind administration which will maintain independent and  ���������ud unimpaired control of our own affairs by the parliament  ���������f Canada, a policy which, while affording no just cause of  aomplaint to any foreign nation, will find its highest ideal  fei tht autonomous development of Canada at a nation within  &s British Empire.

In the past year an effort has been  made to revive the English game of  rugby football in the province of Quebec, and three strong teams have been  formed in Montreal playing the game  under 'the British Rugby Union rules.  The three clubs are McGill University. Montreal English Rug'-y. Football  Olub. and the Canadian Pacific Railway. E.R.F.C. In Ottawa the Royal'  Naval College also hopes to take up  the game. English rugby football is  further played to a great extent in  Winnipeg, extreme Eastern Canada.  British Columbia and California,  where it has in recent years taken  the place of the American game.  While it is not the wish of English  rugby clubs in Canada to try and  make converts to the British game,  yet they feel that it is time that Canada, especially on account of her closd  situation to Great Britain, be able to  _put a fifteen in -the., field, under Brit-  Girls who are troubled with painful j euce  iih rugby'rules and capable of holding its own against representative  teams of Great Britain, or any of her  overseas dominions.  This would make one game of rugby  throughout the Empire and induce  British, as well as the teams of South  Africa, Australia, and New Zealand  to visit Canada.  Almost 500 first class clubs are members of the British Rugby Football  Union, and these clubs are spread all  over the world, the head office of the  rugby board being in London, England.  The rules governing the British  game have chauged considerably since  the game was last played in theso  parts of Canada; now many years ago.  and the g.vtie as played to-day is. no  doubt, the fastest, exciting aud most  spectacular game of football iu exist-  FROST &  WOOD   Machines Lead  Oef   Oa*a!sgu������  fposs.   th������   Osskshuii   ������eaSes8  "STONEHENGS."

Origin  of   Famous  Monument  Veiled  In  Mystery.  first   serious   inquiry   into   the  of   Stonehenge   came   from   a  characteristic quarter, no less a person than  the  British  Solomon,  King  James    I.,    who,    says   The    London  Globe, directed Inigo Jones, the famous architect, to undertake the task.  At  the  time  of  his  death  Inigo had  prepared some notes only.  These were  edited by a relative at the desire of  two  famous  men,. Harvey, discoverer  of  the  circulation  of  the  blood,  and  Selden,   the   lawyer;   the   theory   ad-  A*-&4iGed-^4.ng^J"uii.^J^  temple  after  the  Tuscan   order."    It  would   be   interesting   to 'know, how  much of the work was really Inigo's.  as it, was based on certain geometric  measurements   which  proved  to  have  been less accurately done than might  have been expected from an architect.  The   popular  theory   that  monuments  such as Stonehenge, or the circles at  Keswick  and  elsewhere  in  the  Lake  distriot, were Druids' temples, originated    with    Dr.    William    Stukeley.  Stukeley was a man of great learning,  but   allowed   his   ideas   to   run   away  with him.  His arguments formed a remarkable  study, tie had seen the circles, apparently temples without priests; he  had read ol the Druids, apparently  priests without temples. He wished to  connect them. Then he found in Pliny  a fantastic story that in Gaul the  serpents congregated at midsummer,  ami produced from their saliva an  egg to which magic virtues were ascribed. This they cast into the air,  seemingly after the modern ritual ol  tossing the pancake, and he'who would  possess himseli of the talisman must  catch it ere it reached ;ne ground  and fly for safety beyond running  water; "for all the terrors that Tam  o' Shauter or Elsie Venner braved  were liis Pliny crowns the whole  by saying that he had seen one of  these eggs; so when he adds that they  were regarded as a charm by the  Druids, Stukeley had no hesitation in  saying that the circles were erected  by the Druids for serpent worship.  But why were they circles? Because,  said Stukeley, they represented the  coils of an enormous '.snake, worked  in boulders, the image of their deity.  To demonstrate this he made a sur?  vey of the lines of stones near the  circle at Avebury. The resulting snake  was semi-detached, neither continuous  nor convincing, and it was only by  the help of artistic license that he  was able to produce the required diagram. Later he supplemented this by  a plan of certain remains aV Shap,  Westmoreland.

'       Jack Tar's Letters.  It is easy enough for you to drop  your letters in a pillar-box and know  that they will be delivered with all  due speed. But Jack, especially  when he is cruising in foreign waters,  has to wait weeks or even months to  get a reply to his correspondence.  On every British war vessel a cor-  goral or lance-corporal of the Royal  latines is specially told off to collect  and dispatch letters and parcels. He*  is the local postoffice and postmaster,  for he sella stamps and generally acts  for and gives information to the members of the .ship's company about  their mail. All the letters for England are fastened up in/private bags  and addressed to the G.P.O., London.  These bags are sealed with the design of a British ensign around which  are the words, "The Seal of His Majesty's Ships."  Many of the letters that aro received from Jock Tar bear English  stamps and the London postmark,  which rather puzzles recipients. But  the foregoing paragraph explains thi.*-  simply enough. TheJ>a mall bags',  when properly sealed, are taken  ashoro by the ship's postman and  delivered to tho nearest postoflice.  Very often the latter is twenty or  thirty mileB away ond consists of a  dignified barn.  Royal Cyclists.

C    REVIEW.  - r  nrril'j* V^cXtio/v  THE vacation of tlie boys and  girls who are in school or college  began early In June. The young  ladies of the household are making ready for outings of varying lengths  In July and August. House parties, a  ���������week's sojourn at the seashore, or at  the springs, or in the Adirondack woods,  is set down ln the calendar of this one,  snd her sister has an Imitation to join  a camping gang bound for the Rangeley  lakes, or the mountaintop somewhere  In Veriiont. Even Pater Famillas has  engaged to "go a-fishlng" when his  vacation   conies  ln due order.  There is an  order of  precedence and  succession   In - the   matter   of   rest   and  recreation   in    every    .business   .House.  *  From  ���������'boss'' to porter,  the right to lay  -���������-0ff~f������T';--a-^iv-eHr"Ti'MT^^ ���������-  tablished asAthe rate'of; wages.'and the  time of payment.

In entering a place,'she mentions  the fact, if the employers omit to  epeak of it.  She Is right! So are all the rest of  our toilers, who. recognize the imperative  necessity of unbending the taut bow  periodically and taking the harness from  the draughthorse that he"may roll upon  the turf and/as the boys put it, "kick  up h's heels" to get the ache and stiff-'"  ness put of them. A wise ypractltiohrr  in'nervous diseases tojd an overworked  man on the verge of nervous prostration  to stop working'overtime and try conscientiously to do every afternoon andy.  evening "the thing he liked best to do-  always provided it was not work."  There you have ytheAvery essence and ���������"���������  spirit'of vacation. The'Latin root, "va-  care," ��������� signifies itb> empty,, to free &nd  leave unoccupied. Jt is. well to dig up  the root of a word sometimes, that we  may analyze flower or fruit.  I once, heard a rich���������Self-made���������man.  say that. he saw no sense in a grown,  persen taking aV vacation; for his party ;  he had never had one in his life. That  is. not since he went into a store as porter's assistant at 14. He had worked  six days in the week for twelve months' :  of the year for forty years. "Nowadays." he went on to say, scornfully,  "every 'whipsnapper of a clerk, on $6  per. must-have his ten days off.' As  for the ministers, nothing less than two  months will do for them; and. with that,  they go to pieces every three or four  years and require a foreign trip to build  ���������them up. It's nothing but a fashion ahd  a fid'"  At 45 he "went to pieces," dying at  the top���������as tlie saying is���������and drew hie  3a"'.est breath ' at:: 50. -after, five years of  semi-imbecllity.v The machine, was worn  out; the bow had lost pliancy; the beast ;  of burden was foundered and hopelessly ,  lame. -.. vy ���������'.'���������-  ���������With these facts In mind, I turn with  serious look and thought to a passage  Jn a letter from an active member of our.  r family: ������������������..:���������-.  "Say a word, please, for our housemother at this season. She is the.only  member of the household who does not  ' enjoy a elated rest and relief from the  cares of the. home.: She sews for her  daughters: urges the '.-husband to' take .  recreation and to enjoy, it to the full,,  and works from "alarm clock to alarm  clock.* In the name of humanity, won,'t  you put In a plea for respite from the  maddening grind?" -  "The maddening grind!"

That was as much'responsibility  as she could carry, year Iri and year1  out. The mother in. every home knows  what she meant and felt; knows,' too,  why she loses appetite for home food?,  with the coming of the summer days y  filie hates almost as heartily as the children love them. It Is bad enough to  order meals, she .will tell you, without,  having to eat them. Also, that "nothing tastes right," When the girls have  their own homes, and have to consider  for 365 days in the year the problem of  what*to eat and how to serve it; to calculate how to fit market bills to the  actual Income upon which she may  draw to pay them; to set so good a.-..,  table that the waning appetites of hard-  worked husband and schoolchildren,  fretting under examinations ond heat.  . may he tempted and their strength kqpt  up until vacation, the now thoughtless  young women will look back remorsefully to these days of Ignorance and  uncharitable-judgment of the appetlto-  >���������  Jesw toller-ln-ehlef. ��������� _  ������������������She sewn for the daughtera,"   There  U hn appalling quantity of sowing to be  done.

She will be more astonished than anybody else when the award  is made. The suspicion that she is anything higher than a commonplace wife  and mother, who tries humbly to do the  duty of the day without a taint of self-  pity in word or thought, has never  dawned upon her commonplace intellect.  Yet she is keen witted In descrying  the talents ol" her offspring and zealous  in the sacrifice of her personal ease and  comfort to secure recognition and improvement of these gifts. Her husband  is the head of the home. If he had his  deserts, he would be the leading man in  the community. She spares him every  care that she can ward off from the  I ,'  Ihmrii  A tb'nd, who is not especially fond of  cliurchgoing for the rest of the >;ear,  takes liei outing at Northfteld, attending every meeting, indoor and out,  When I looked polite surprise at hearing this, she explained the idiosyncrasy  by ob������-ervin<������ diffidently:  "You see, it is' so unlike anything' I  have for the rest of the year. It refreshes me through and thiough. I  look foi ward to it longingly from the  beginning i,f the season."  She hit up n the-truth without knowing one word of Latin. She empties  her mind of all that absorbed thought  and time lor the rest of the year and  follows whim rather than duty. The  indulgence  is  a  genuine  \acation.  If you fan bf-guile the mother into an  expression of peisonal inclination on  the subject of hej h-hday, exercise  your ingenuity to extract it painlessly.  That is., without letting her suspect  what you are bent upon. If she have  grown so weary m body and in spirit  that she has no preference for one place  or tring anova the other, the greater.is  her need of a thorough change "When  a woman of sense and native energy  c������3js������s^JU-���������e.*K6���������w-fce**������er ���������die���������stays ���������at ���������,���������  quaintance of two other "plain people," and the three sat for hours in  the shade of the veranda- roof,  eying the butterflies of fashion in their  flitting back and forth.

The effect upon -the quiet  homebody's health and spirits was so  pronounced that she has been sent  to the "Sbrings" every August since.  She has never driink a teaspoonful of  the   waters.      She   does   not   need    it.  For one golden week and a half out  of fifty-two^ she does just what she  likes: best, to, do. getting clean out of  the "maddening grind" of everyday  drudgery.

In how many, horftes���������even among  the very well-to-do classes" in our  country���������is mother's vacation a stated  family "institution"? Who plans that  she shall step out from the shadow of  money cares and homely contrivances  to get for husband and children of  more moderate means recreation and  holiday? She would plead against  herself that she cannot be spared  from the helm. Nobody, else can run  the house as she runs it; her duties  may not be delegated to daughter or  hirelings.  It is the plain duty, then, of ��������� husband and daughter to take the matter  of mother's vacation out of her .hands.

G.  Aug. 24th, 1911.  Mr.sEditor,  We are not experts bnt morely  fruitgrowers, if onr style does not suit  yon, blame our lack of time, or our ignorance.  We endeavor to answer Meenre O'Kell  Young & Co., whose letter appeared  in the last issue.  1. The information your correspondent got re themeeting,from his reliable  parties, is wrong. The oommittee were  rogularly appointed and tho manner in  whioh thoy have done thoir," work is  proof of thoir fitness.  2. Thero is no intention to spring a  proposal for Municipality upon the  publio,. thin subject is a live ono, in  Creston for 3 years pnat, nnd ovon if  tho petition is successful it will take  18 months or until Jan, 1018 to get the  Municipality stortod.  Yonr correspondents who pose as  such authorities must know this Ib the  law; 0 weeks Ib Bufllolent to enable Canada to conoldor Roolproolty, but 0 yours  6 months, (no.iording to OKoll Young)  imoflUout to decide on Municipality for  Creston. Yonr correspondents nro either  wilfully avoiding foots, or nro moling  themsolvos foolish.  3. A successful community, need  good.ecoaomlcal government and orgau-  ijiod right, an woll m to poanona nntnral  resources.  The Fairest apptn on earth decay  undor bod management, whilst Icbb  ravornd nations prosper on eftlalonoy iind  economy.  Fruit dittriotn 1000 milos away pour  produoo into onr mnrkot* and out um out  baoansa they ar* organlaed on bnslnots  XX  Hues, whilst we are struggling in vain  because of domination by outsiders at  Nelson or Viotoria.  A ^MjiinifiiwtlTFg wrmfirr"-mpiivt> gi   Rfi������"ttvir  provement in our administration, and  would, notwithstanding your correspondent, real estate men.non produaera nnd  others, bring increased prosperity to this  distriot.  4. Your correspondents display a  lack of kuowledge, when tbey Bpsak of  the four teachers paid by the Gov. os  lost if we form municipality. The Gov.  grants for schools will be same as uow  if we organized the distriot. Add to  this the veceipts from Liquor Licences, Trading Licences, Poll Taxes,  back taxes, sale of lands, nnd the financial benefit under municipality is still  further increased. .,'���������..  5 The figures shown large and increasing amount actually being taken  from this district now, over and above  the Doles the Gov. give us for public  works, and which doles are dependent  upon our supporting the winning side  at Yictorin, aria* may be cut off at any  time.  6. Where do O. Y. & Co., get their  information re the inefficiency of Ontario Townships.  Their statements read like g. story bf  30 years ago, and are certainly, untrue  of the Ontario of today, which is far  more efficiently, cheaply and honestly  governed, than ihe unorganized parts  of this Province. The teachers in. Ontario are paid on the standard of wages  current in the East; aud Eastern Teach  ers are the back bone of our schools in  8. G. today. As to Sehqnl efficiency,  considering all our, brightest schola-s at  Creston, have to be sent "to schools in  Cranbrook.and other organized districts  to be educated at all, and some even to  Ontario, Vat a vast espence" to parents  here, the talk of . sohool - ej&ciency in  un-organized . Greston' will only raise  a smile. How many High Sohools are  to be found in unorganized districts'  The Ontario Police may "be inefficient  but thev sure have nothiug to learn  from unorganized Oreston, where petty  thieving is chronic, where the ^Mulligan  Gang Rule, where the rancher and producer are robbed with impunity, and  where no arrests are made, whilst petty  thieves, dog poisoners, and chicken  stealers, make our Distriot their permanent head-quarters.  It is safe to say that there has been  more unpunished crime in Oreston and  Dlstript during the lost six months, than  there is In si# years in the average Ontario Township,  Onr J. Pb, for fear of losing business  refuse to act, absolutely rofnao to try  cafes or issue warrants, our only law is  by costly procedure at a town 70 miles  away. Your correspondents ore like  small boys throwing stones from a GlasB  House at an Ironclad, when they compare tho inefficiency of tlio polioo  uystoniBOf unorganized B. G, to tho  law fearing tdwushlpo of old Ontario.  It may have boon so, whon/O Koll  wne yonng, bnt their description Ib  more likely a "Pipe dream of Rural  Euglnnd."  7 Mobbm OKoll & Young kindly  inform us this District is grossly overtaxed aa oomparod with tho remainder  of the province.

Ignored politically, therefore shunned by progressive  settlers, is not only bankrupt, but  "Dead."  10. The opponents of a Municipality  are fund of casting reflections upou the  motives of the "progressives" but it  will be found that the chief opponents  of same are themselves the holders of  petty Gov. jobs which a municipality  might dispersa with, hence their opposition.  11. A Municipality, with contract  works, wonld save money for the ratepayers at the same time throwing the  work open to all and elimiuutiug patronage and its attendent evils.  lis},- Uuorganized- Creston is today  governed by political experts at Nelson  and elsewhere, who have uu iuit-ixBib iu  this distrct but in fact view our progress witb jealousy and knock us on all  occasions  Our Road Grants are dependent on  supporting the Gov., in" power Liberal  or Conservative, and are distributed  with a view to political ends, instead of  efficiency.  So long as  we are unorganized we  are cats-paws for . others,   but under  a  Municipality we should be free men aud  masters in our own district.  Yonrs truly,  Walter V.
