Mr. Hetherington said nothing, but  onened the letter and read it  "Look," he said, handing It to  Hugh.  Hugh took it and read:  "You have failed once. Ii you stay  where you are you will be sate, but It  you follow further you will run the  risks ot dangers so frightful and so  strange that you cannot even imagine  them."  "You see you have your warning,"  said Hugh.  (Continued)  sh, rubbish, rubbish," said  Mr, Hetherington three times over,  with added emphasis each time. "Aad  I don't care if they are," he added. "1  ask nothing better than to be decoyed,  as you call it."  "You mean," interposed Delia  thoughtfully, "that letting that cabman know they were going to Poplar,  and leaving that shipping list and the  marked map������������������"  "All that inakeb me feel," said  Hugh, "as I daresay a salmon feels  when the took i. in its mouth and tne  angler is guiding- it towards the bank  ���������it thinks it is free, and yet there  is a constant mysterious pressure  drawing it in one direction. I .feel like'  that; as though, while we think ourselves free, aa old man far away -were  lea-ding us and guiding us towards���������"  ''Where1;" asked Mr. Hetherington.  "To where the little devils live,"  said HttKh.  "Oh,- I'm quite sure he is off his  head," cried Mr. Hetherington.  Hugh laughed, and told them of his  strange interview with the negro he  still believed to have been a white  man in disguise.  "It is easy enough to black a skin,  you know/" he said in conclusion.  "Yes," agreed Delia, "but we have  tKUjjminXfrlJUum rji^i  nt  Tll^iT^s s rf"vrr*.*Mr**i *o'  Ox J.'������3*jL������il ..LAUHIB  "Do they think they -can frighten me  by writing silly letters?" and he tore  the note in half and threw i: away impatiently.  "There was no signature, was  there?" said Delia, who had read the  note over Hugh's shoulder; "Who gave  you that letter?" she asked, turning  to the sailor, who was hanging about  near in th������. hope of a tip coming his  way.  "Sure it was a beautiful, pale young  lady," the man .answered, "with haiv  as black as the big black man's face  that was behind her."  "Oh," said Delia, "I just thought as  much. She is a young woman very  free with her warnings; but, of course,  we go on, papa?" and all the time she  was saying: this she watched Hugh  closely. *  "Oh, or course," answered Mr. Heth-  iugton. "it shows a weak hand when  they try to ohm' us like that���������they  cant murder the three of us, and what  else do they think they can do?  ''���������frightful and strange dangers!' Rubbish! No, we will do our best to get  hold of the cipher again, and if we  can't���������"  "What then?" asked Hugh . as ns  paused.  "1 shall suggest a partnership," said  Mr. Hetherington calmly. "Why not?  They ought to jump at the chance, for  the law  is  on  my side  and 1 could.  rolleduP in the most approved 'Varsity  style; "it clean beats me," he said.  Fortunately they had not arrived too  late for the evening meal, and Mr.  Hetheringtoh and Hugh, coining downstairs, applied themselves with vigor  to the very substantial tea or supper  which Mr. Kobbins provided for his  guests. Delia, longer occupied with her  toilet," aid not come down with them,  replying when hor father knocked at  her door, that she was going to; have a  sponge down in her room and would  come downstairs when she was ready.  So, without wating for her; Mr. Hetherington and Hugh started their supper; and seeing them alone Mr. Uob-  bins came up and expressed a hope  that the young lady was well. Reas^ur-  ed on this point, ho siit down near and  began to chat, and Hugh, anxious for  /������    $5Sm\  Comprehensive   Movement   Launched  in Aibcrta io Stimulate inter est  In Agricultural Advantages  What promises to be the biggest and  most comprehensive movement for  the development of the farm lands of  Western Canada, was started at Edmonton on January second. On that  date, the Industrial and Publicity Association of Alberta held a meeting *.n  the Civic Building at Edmonton and  blocked out a big plan for the better  improvement of the farm lands of Alberta and it is expected that this  movement will be. taken up by men  working along similar lines in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.  The 32dmoiiton meeting was made up  of representatives of Alberta boards  of trade, industrial ^bureaus, farmers'  associations, labor organizations, railway corporation}*., the provincial and  civic governments, and a number of  other public spirited men who gathered for the occasion.

Most of the other guests had finished their meal and departed, but in one  corner there still sat a-dark? lean man,  who had come in late and who ate  alone and very quickly. He had a thin,  highly nervous face, disfigured by a  dark frowning scowl that seemed hab-  itual.and a pair of hollow bloodshot  eyes set very deep in his head.  "That is Editor Keene," remarked  Mr. Robbins, who was growing quite  confidential towards his two new acquaintances, as the stranger, presently  rose and left the room, "a very remarkable man.

On    the other  "There is someone amoiig these  mysterious people who seems to take  {iuite-~an interest in you." she remarked.    "I wonder who "it can be?"

If  we can get it back, well aad good; if  not, the affair seems to me to offer  every basis for a fair and reasonable  compromise."  Hugh,said nothing, but it was in his  mind that this compromise, however  fair and reasonable,.came just a little  late in the day for, at any rate, that  'Aye," said the millionaire drawing ] unhappy man wh������ years before had  a deep breath, and, if he had been in j thrown away his life in a fit of des-  any way shaken by Hugh, s story, now i pair,  again show iug all his old fierce obstinacy of purpose; "it is a prize we  will not let ourselves be frightened  out of by a few words. After all, no  very great harm can happen to us.  The worst we have to fear is a failure  to get hold of the cipher, and if we  turned back we certainly should not  get hold of it thai svay. At the same  time, Hugh may be right in thinking  the clues we found were just put there  on purpose to lead us on a wrong  track." ���������  "Not at all," said Hugh, "I think  they may have been put there to lead  us on the right track."  "Then we stand a chance-of recovering the cipher," said Mt netheriug-  ton; "and as for Hugh's notion that  anyone eould bear me a grudge for  what happened to that poor fellow  Siddle years ago, I am sure there is  nothing in that."  Hugh said no more; and in due  course, and with no further adventures, their hurried railway rush ended at Holyhead, where a boat was waiting for them.  "What time did the other special  get in?" Hugh asked, When they ar-  rived.  "Half an ".".our ago," he wus told;  "the two gentlemen will be just about  out of the harbor by now."  It was evident these iwo  specials,  each with a boat waiting to take its  passengers   on   to   Quccnstown,   had  excited a good deal of interest.   With  as much haste as might be Mr. Heth-  ington,  Hugh  and  Delia  hurried  on  board the boat waiting at the quuy,  and  started  at once.    But luck was  against  t*;em:   the  wind  sprang  up,  hindering progress, while tho boat Itself was by no means particularly fast.  Finally, just off tho Irish coast, they  ran into a mist and had to slow down  considerably, and when they entered  Queens-own harbor It was empty. The  groat  liner had  loft,  an  hour before,  and  was  already  more  than  twenty  miles awy,  "First score :igainst us," said Mr.  Hetherington gloomily. "Wo shall have  to take the next boat from Southampton, but they will get to Now York  three days before us now."  They steamed filowly into tho harbor and lay up at ono of the quays.  As soon ar. ho was on Irfnd Mr. Hetherington inquired of tho official who  hau bii-jL-riiiU'-idod tho mooring operation!; If Lord Ambrose and Hannah had  had hotter luck, it appeared thoy  bad; they had entered tho ..arbor just  as the Lyric wan on tho point of departure; they linrl uindo ntralght for  her where r������he ]������y out In tho harbor;  and they had been takon on board  hardly five minutes before tho liner  {���������'urtcJ.

The  sleaniel they caught at Southampton  made a good journey to New York,  and by a piece of good luck they land-  edkin time to catch without the delay  of an hour the express for the middle  west. At St. Paul and Minneapolis  they had to change, and thenceforth  their progress was not quite so rapid;  but towards evening on the next day  after leaving St. Paul the three of  them alighted at the Petersville depot,  an object of much interest to the ilttle  band of loafers assembled to greet the  arrival of the train.  Petersville is not, perhaps,vibe most  important town its State can boast of,  but it is a flourishing and progressive  place:   it boasts  an  opera  house in  stone and a post office in brick;   it  has   two   newspapers   and   a   savings  bank of its own, as well as b-anches of  other banks; it has some large stores  ���������the Ebervelt Hardware store has an  Inter-State reputation���������and is altogether a live place with no small opinion  of itselffi a sublime confidence in its  own future, and an opinion of Gam-  betta, the State capital, which cannot  well be expressed in commonplace dictionary language.  It has also two or three hotels, of  which one, the Robbins House, overshadows all others ns in the City of  London St. Paul's Cathedral overshadows all other of the city, churches. To  the Robbins House, therefore, Mr.  Hetherington, Delia and Hugh mado  their way and were welcomed in person by Mr. Robbins, who shook hands  with them cordially, inquired after  their health, and asked them first  what thoy thought of tho United States  and next their opinion of Petersville,  his tone suggesting that the United  StatOB existed largely for the purpose  of affording a fitting background for  tho abounding merits of Petersville;.  Hugh having made sultahlo response  ���������ho was growing accustomed to being  asked what ho thought of the country,  and had ovolvcd tho answer, satisfactory alike to himself and to his questioners, that he had never noon such  n. country before���������a negro was summoned to conduct thorn upstairs to  their rooms, Mr. TtohbliiR expressing a  polite hopo thut thoy wonb.1 like them,  und adding that ho was noi. a prejudiced man, and for his part thought just  as much of au IGiiKlibhnuiu aa of anyone else.

The loss of Austria-  Hungary he regards as most, serious.  Eastern  Prussia is  equally important to Germany from an agricultural  standpoint.    The crop deficiency,  he  thinks, threatens most serious conse-.  quences for these two countries.    He  also points out that the wastage of  horses in both hostile countries must  be tremendous,   the   home   supply inadequate, and    the   difficulty   of importing any considerable number formidable.

But in spite of this, he has, to quotje  Mr. Hardy, Fellow of Trinity, who has  taken a great interest in Ramanujan,  "discovered for himself; a great number of things which the leading mathe-  matlciahs of the last hundred years  had added to the knowledge of school  men, although he was quite ignorant  of their work and accomplishments.  Indeed, his mathematical. education is  rather a mystery, arid the first I knew  of him was about fifteen months ago  when he wrote to me explaining who  ne was, and ient a large number of remarkable - mathemathicalA: theorems  which he hau proved."

The  cable estimating at fifty raiUions the  total of orders, by the Allies is somewhat exaggerated, but they are constantly being placed; and' that figure  will be reached before long at tho  present rate.  The militia department is pursuing  the policy of ordering well in "advance  the clotliiiig and equipment required  for all the expeditionary forces, and  about all the contracts required for a  considerable time have ^ow been  placed throughout the country. Woollen and textile mills, clothing, underwear and saddlery factories are working day and night and furnishing a  compensating stimulus to'an industry  which otherwise might be adversely  affected by the war.  This, in addition to the assured'  demand and high prices for increased  agricutural products, make the general outlook for Canada .na bright as  for any country in the world.

Same condition may be applied to  us as farmers when we venture into  ' the commercial field,  and before we  get our bearings.

Conservative member from  Vancouver.  The call for recruits for the Third  Canadian Contingent has been  sounded and once more East Kootenay has been asked to supply 100  men.  Will someone in authority p'ease  inform the public hereabouts why  the militia department should allot  such a small contingent of volunteers to be drafted from this part  of Kootenay.  At Fernie thirty men were asked  for, and the rYee Press is our  authority for saying that almost  300 were available. At Cranbrook,  Michel, and other centres the same  conditions exist. Even here in  Creston there were at least twenty  men available for the ten openings.  From the fact that the Montreal  regiments were glad to accept our  men as part of their quota on each  of the- first two contingents, it  would seem only right that the  men should be enlisted where they  are available.

There:  fore it is absolutely indispensable for  Great Britain that this country should  become a n,eutral state or be annax-  ed.    But the objection to    a    British  occupation of Palestine is that if tne  province  opens  a door on  Egypt    jt  also holds the relation to this country*  ot an exit,    and    the presence of a  British garrison    in    Palestine would  keep the inhabitants .of Syria awake.

German strategy  consist in remaining under cover of  mines and. fortifications, where the  British cannot possibly reach them;  laying* mines far and wide, particularly off English ports in channels or  localities -much used by British men-  of-war- and large vessels; keeping up  the spirits of the German people, and  spreading panic through fear   of ,in-  ,_vasion amongjthe civilians in England  "by bombardment of unfortified ports;  nicking off, with submarines, one by  one, the British battleships.    Finally,  ' when the preponderance of the British  fleet has been reduced, and when  ignorant meddlers in parliament have  compelled the division of the British  fleet, the plan is to make a.sortie and  co-cehtrated attack on one part of the  ABritish fleet   with the entire strength  ., of the German navy, with battleships,  battle .Acruisers,   light   cruisers,   de-  ��������� -troyers, mine layers^ and, if cond_*  lions permit, with submarine-?, -^Zeppelins .'ahd/aeroplane's.-��������� At the same  ���������time, fast cruisers of tho Emden type  ���������will slip through the North sea -in  the   prevailing   confusion,    paralyze  low zero.^ There is no rest night or day  tor the men.

Taking into consideration the facts  that many eminent officers, including  Sir Percy Scott, the father of modern  gunnery, stated btfore the war that  the submarine had made the battle-  snip obsolete; that Great Britain is  of necessity forced to divide her  fleet; that her superiority to the Germans in dreadnoughts is only five to  three; that the Germans are able to  make a sortio at any moment by day  or night in concentrated force; that  the British, fleet is in the position of a  man- with his arms bound, unable to  strike back, but feeling sur. that the  hour of vegeance "Will soon be nigh;  that Great Britain still is mistress of  the seas and lu.s been able to carry  cut every part of her programme������������������  all this seems to prove to me that  British naval strategy and efficiency  have been of a high order.  British, strategy in'time of peace  has provided, in spite" of the peace  crbkers in parliament, such a large  shipbuilding programme that Great  Britain'now occupies a stronger position relative to-Germany than at the  beginning of the war,-in spite of the  loss of about 3 per cent, of her total j  ���������>>W.*J-      ������/x*ii w_>������      4.11      W-J-.W      __--S-_.u      _?*._*- jju������.i.A* HO   "  eight superdreadnoughts will be finished for the French fleet, and two for  Japan.

Bell, London correspondent of the London uaiiy News, is of  the. opinion, gathered irom information in. interviews with men of importance throughout Europe, that the United States has incurred the enmity of  all the belligerent nations a: d that  with the close of the war this nation  will face isolation and peril. Mr. Bell  says:    '   ..  "Conversations with persons of  force .representing the sentiments of  Great Britain, -France, Russia, Italy,  Germany, and Austria compel the conviction that the United States is makt  ing no real - friends in this war. On  the contrary, it is impossible not to  see that the American name is suffering and that conceivably the republic  is laying up grave troubla for itself  in the future.  "The   general   charge against   our  country is  that we are  displaying  ..  shameless lack of idealism, chivalry,  magnanimity   and  courage.     Briton3,  Frenchmen,    Russians    and    Italians  blame America for ignoring the invasion of Belgium and the violations of  the    conventions of The Hague    and  then springing into the international  arena    with a protest relating exclusively to matters of trade. The argument in all these complaints is that if  President      Wilson      had    protested  cgainst   the violations of tha treaties  and tiie principles of civilized warfare  he could nave protested with a vastly  greater effect against    the -arbitrary  and possibly indefensible interference  with American cargoes."  "Europeans, profoundly misunder-  standingthe Americans," as nearly  every nation misunderstands every  other, always have referred to the  people of the Unitel,States as 'dollar  people,' and the policy of President  Wilson in the present war has crys-  talized the pervasive impression into  a sharp and universal postulate.  "It is asserted on every hand that  the Americans witnessed unmoved���������  that is, so far as official action -was  concerned���������the crucifixion of Belgium,  of   women  ships, the six Japanese and French  ships will be turned over to her, and  manned by her naval forces, an addition to the British fleet of 14 vessels  of the most -powerful and modern  type," and "equivalent in gun power ari������_.  fighting strength to the first 18 German dreadnoughts.  Those amateur strategists in England" wlio demand that the British  should chai*ge madly over mine fields  to get at the Germans simply ask  Great Britain to commit suicide as a  nation,'lor time works on the side of  the allies. The" situation of the allies  does not render the taking of chances  necessary, but criminal; a policy of  watchful waiting must be pursued.  When a few noncombatants in ah unfortified town are killed, th3 English  should remember that millions upon  millions are* suffering, in France,  Poland, Belgium and Galicia, and give  their fleet tne deepest confidence and  gratitude, for in the British fleet, I  believe, every man is doing his duty.���������  New York Times.

This was rendered  all the more easy because up to the  passage of the law in 1913, less than  half of the contingent of the year was  actually incorporated. .The result  was that, instead of anticipating con-  "ngents like Napoleon, the Germans  saved them up. and provided thorn-  selves With1 a first recruiting reserve,  of which a considerable part is probably already in service at the front  and at the depots. The last year for  which complete German recruiting  statistics are available is 1911. In  that year there were 663,000 youths  of 20 examined for the first time, 368,-  000 youths of 21, adjourned from the  previous yeav~ 289,000 adjourned from  thb year 1909 and 61,000 over the age  bf^.22. This a gave about 1,271,000  ybuths liable to.jsei'vice and the situation in ,1914, v-hen the wcr began,  must have beea rot very different.  This is the first source upon Which  the German military administration  will naturally draw.  Germany has at her disposal first,  tha  1914    contingent and  recruiting  reserve,      approximately      1,000,000;  secondly, the Ersatz men    and  first  ban landsturm 3,000,000, and thirdly.  the youtlis under 20,   say   1,000,000.

Again and again one hears  men of repute say that'Mr. Wilson has  revealed his own cowardice, degraded  the presidency, dishonored American  political and moral traditions. Thesa  outbursts do not proceed from resent'  ment of Mr. Wilson's^ protest with .-s-  gard to British and i. rench. treatment  of trade with neutral countries.

"The indictment against us so far  a& I can measure it simply is this-  We abdicated ignominously and ran  away when great questions of morals  and humanity were concerned- but  promptly lecovered our sence of duty  and our courage when the state of  war threatened to reduce the profits  of the copper kings anl otherwise  penalize America materially.

Thoroughly   Modernized   and   Greatly  Strengthened Since War With  Japan * ~  From    the    days  when Peter  the  Great, in a ship which his own hands  had helped to construct, led his fleet  to attach; the Turks, Russia has had a  naval tradition.. It    was Peter, too,  who wrested Sweden's Baltic province  from her, and built almost    on the  shore of the Gulf of Finland, his new  capital,   called   after    himself,    and  which, after haVirtg borne for a number of years they name o������ another and  even more notable Peter, hae just hadA  its original* Russian name a.g!u .bestowed on it.   By removing his c&pltai  i from Moscow to Pettograd, -Peter/'hot .;  ' only helped to bring his people more  into contact/Wlth the rest of Europe,  but himself became transformed from  the semi-oriental Czar of Muscovy Into  '   i_n\peror of All the Itussias, whose  influence  and   interests   needed   for  their maintenance an efficient degree  of sea. power.    That tradition which  Peter left has nlwayu retained Its potency, and despite neglect and maladministration,  which    at times    overshadowed it, the Russian navy Is today  far more powerful than is generally  known.    The lesson ot the war with  Japan   has been taken to heart, and  the result has been the creation of a  ludorn and efflclout fleet, stronger in  every way than before that disastrona  campaign. Russia, too, has beer in the  forefront of construction, nnd Borne remarkable ships have at various times  been put to her credit.  Of the four fleets possessed bv:Russia at the outbreak of war with Jupan,  two survived intact, but only ono can  be taken into nccount in connection  with later developments. Tho four  ileets are, respectively, the Baltic, Uio  Black Sea, Pacific and Caspian, and  two of them, tho Baltic and Pacific,  were practically nhriihlllatod. That tho  others escaped wan primarily duo '.o  the fact thnt the major portion of tho  Black Sea fleet was not permitted to  pac,** the Dardanelles, and tho Cabpiuu  lleot, of minor importanco, is, of  course, confined to her own wnlom,  from which there io no outlet.
