Institute Fall Fair
Shapes Up Well
There were 36 members on hand for
the August, meeting of Creston Women's Institute on Friday evening
last which, owing to the coolness of
the evening, had to be held in the hall
instead of on the lawn at Mrs. Speers
home as intended.
There was only one paper presented, on drying fruits and yegetables,
which was giyen by* Mrs. Lyne. These
were all tested and found good re-
ceipes and they will be published for
the convenience of the many who
asked for the use of them.
The institute will be represented at
the Kootenay Women's Institute conference at Cranbrook on Sept. 4 and 5,
by Mi*s. H. B. Downs, who was
unanimously chosen as delegate.
The prize list for the fall fair were
distributed, and are now in the hands
of practically all the members, and
the balance of the session had to do
with the exhibition, which is set for
Sept. 5th, in Mercantile Hall.
The following ladies will look after
the refreshments at the fair: Mesr
dames Hayden, Maxwell, Craigie,
Arrowsmith, Goodwin and Miss
Mark wick, while: all-ihe junior members of the Institute are expected to
assist on this occasion. Every member is reminded, too, that, they are
expected to help out the" refreshment
committee oh fair day to the extent
of each bringing along something of
this kind.
The    decoration     committee    was
named as follows:   Mesdames   Hayes
Mallandaine,    Cherrington,   Lidgate,
-G. Young and   F. Jackson.   Members
of both   committees are reminded'to
meet with the. djree.tQrs  at. the" Red.

R. S. Beyan addressed the Institute
members oh  behalf of -the boiird of
trade, asking the ladies  tb V co-operate
in the exhibit the board-is making at
the Cranbrook   next   month,   in   the
way of sending down a line   of fancy
work, as well as other articles in the
ladies' department of the exhibition.

3 cents a cup has had to be paid to
attract pickers.
Local anglers sta'te that the fishing
in Arrow Creek"this year has been the
best for several seasons. At present,
too, the water in this stream is about
the lowest it has ever been.
R. J. Long has just completed taking
off the second crop of alfalfa on the
Woodbine ranch. He and W. G.
Littlejohn will rank among the
tomato kings this year, as they are
each counting on at least 300 crates of
ripe ones. E. S. 'Cuming will have a
crop of about 100 crates from appearances.     _

Some of the young folks motored
over to Port Hill to the dance on
Saturday night and reported a most
enjoyable time.
��� Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Cooper are
chaperoning a party of about fourteen
young folks who leave here on Saturday for a week's camping trip at
Sanca Creek.
Creston visitors for the week were:
Mr. and Mrs. Matt. Hagen, Mr. and
and Mrs. Peter Andestad, Mrs. E.
Williams, E. Butterfield, Gus. Johnson and "Baby" Carlson.
Tommy Butterfield spent the weekend with his parents here as par
usual. Nelson must be very dull, indeed, for a week seems to be as long
as he can stay - in ii, spending each
week end at busy Wynndel to liven
him up.
. The. evangelistic services held by
th�� i!ifis��^.RV^^tis<>n ^dc Long, have
been Vcontinued "tnis- week with .the
exceptioriVdf Monday eyening. They
have beenVvery well attended, and on
Sunday ovening every available seat
was taken and somewhat crowded at
that. For the plain unvarnished
truth they are without comparison
and there is one thing to the credit of
the people of Wynndel and that is
they, will at least give them a hearing.
A special,meeting of the directors of
the Westejrn Belle Mining Co., Ltd.,
was held in the office of R. Lamont on
Monday afternoon, which was. attended by ColeijL Smith, Porthill, president;
A. McCormick, Spokane, vice-president: S. R|Green, Spokane, secretary-
treasurer;'.0. W. Smith and Joe Walls,
Porthill, and R. Lamont, Creston,
directors. Vs
The We|tern Belle is a Summit
Creek property, on which a great deal
of'development work has already been
���done, the %company's holdings embracing 20*0 -acres on North Star
Mountain;i* Frequent assays of the
ore show it to. run 80' per cent, lead
and about ten ounces of silver to the
ton, showing also a trace of gold.
The company has now at least 200
tons of ore bh the dump. It has just
completed the erection of commodious
bunk and _cpokhouses~and has started
a crew of ri^en to work driving a long
tunnel^ possibly 1000 feet. The company is well financed for operating
this--.tunnel*-.work,' and, they are not
expecting to ship any ore until early
in 1918.
The property is advantageously
situated in^iiany respects. Th' y have
only four miles of road to build to
connect up:with the road used by the
Idaho-Contineutal, and the plans are
to erect their concentrator at a point
midway between the_ mine and the
Continental road and bring the ore
dowa in by a bucket tram. The concentrator has an ideal location in that
it is so situated that it can be utilized
by the.fBjave*dpprt group of claims,

average 50 cents a crate better than in
.'16, arid the reds possibly 40 cents.
The market is right for tomatoes,
but as yet the Valley crop of these is
slow in coming in. Right now the export is very little better than a dozen
crates a day. There is plenty of
cucumbers to supply every demand,
with few. if any enquiries for the
pickling sort. -'
Independent shippers are sending
out cooking apples in limited quantity
to Crow points. Shipping of these, is
not being encouraged as the fruit is
inclined to be under size, forcing down
pi-ices, and tending to injuriously
effect the price on the real good stuff
that will be available shortly.

Tomato exports have not got ovor
the dozen-cratos-a-day mark as yet,
probably due to the fact that the early
ones are suffering from point rot.
However, the disease is not in evidence
on the later ones at all.

While growers generally may have
a considerable kick on the deal they
got this season in the line of weather,
their disappointment is tempered to
some extent at least on much better
prices than other years, and Union
shippers have a still added satisfaction
in that so far they have got statements and pay cheques oftener and
more regularly than eyer before.
All fruit handled during June and
July was paid for in the last batch of
cheques, which went out on Tuesday.
These accounted for all the strawberries handled and the average price
paid was $2.57 per crate--on 2803crates
handled during tho entire season, or a
decrease of ovor 2000 crates as compared with 1010, when close to 4000
elites were handled.

President Henderson presided.
The committee looking after the
exhibit at Cranbrook fair reported
progress. As yet but one copy of the
prize list is available which was holding up matters to some extent. How���
ever, the Valley" has been divided up
into districts, and a member of the
committee assigned a section, and a
still hunt is now on for the good looking stuff in the fruit and vegetable
lines. In addition to this, oh behalf
of the committee, R. S. Bevan interviewed the Women's Institute on
Friday last, and they have consented
to co-operate by seqding along a display of fancy work, canned goods,

daily- papers in B.C. as well as the
weeklies in Kootenay, Boundary and
part of Okanagan have been sent a
carefully prepared story covering the
matter, and leading dailies on the
prairies had also been supplied with a
shorter version of the same thing, and
results are confidently looked for iri
the provincial press at least.
A tentative date for the big drainage meeting at Creston was set for
September 29th, and tho president
along with Messrs. Rodgers.Stark and
Embree were named a committee to
strike the standing committees to
handle the conference and to draw up
a proposed programme for the gathering which will be taken up and
adopted at a board meeting to be
held next Tuesday night. In the
meantime the Idaho' authorities will
be got in touch with for suggestions in
this connection.
R. Stark introduced the irrigation
proposition, which was freely discussed
Mr. Stark dealing at some detail with
investigations he had made in a amall
way looking to the utilization of
Arrow Creek, and the various routes
and systems for piping the water
down to a central distributing point.
All present were quite agreed that in
view of thiB year's experience an
irrigation system was yery desirable,
and in view of a prospective visit from
the minister of land to the drainage
meeting it was considered wise to get
ahead with all possible preliminary
work along the lino of gathering data
so that, if possiblo, tho proposition
can bc informally di��>cuij.sed with him
on his visit horo. Messrs, Stark,
Bennett and W. V. Jackson wore
named by the president to go into the
matter and report at the next meeting
of tho board.

In other words, the  trouble lies in the high freight prevailing. Australia produces little, if  any, timber suitable for shiphuildliig.  Pine wood must be used, and in the  past shipbuilders have employed Oregon, pine from Amerie^t and kauri..  iiom New 'Zealand. But since the  outbreak of war, the freight on Oregon pine has risen from 8 shillings to  95_ shillings per 1000 feet, and the  price from 8 shillings to 35 shillings  per 100 feet, and therefore these rates  are prohibitive. The Australian builder would be quite willing to use kauri, wliich, though more costly than  usual, is still not at si prohibitive  price, bul for some reason tliat is not  very clear, kauri cannot at present be  obtstined from New Zealand in an}--  thing like tin* required, quantities.

Sometimes it  is suggested answers can be written  in saliva bn  thc inside  of envelopes.

The  farm has been sold to Mi*. Coolcdge  for $25,000, and Mr. Cooleuge has  since disposed of a half interest in it.  Mr. Green's sheep ranch on Chin coulee consists of several sections and.is  an ideal sheep grazing area. It has  been sold to Ed. Hagerman for $84,-  000. This, however, does not include  the sheep. The ranch . is well equipped .with buildings, including one of  the most modern houses in the south  country.  There is . a great deal of land  changing hands in the Taber district.  The Cameron ranch, which was- put  on the. market last fall, is being  bought tip, partly by new settlers and  partly by people living in the Taber  district. The outside edge of the  ranch on the northwest-has all heen  disposed of to a depth of four or five  sections.  >������������������*-���������..*>.���������-.���������..���������������������������  ������������������������������������������#������������������������������������������������������������������������  ..*..*..**.*^*mm..im..*.^  4  i  *~*.

Subscription: $2 a year in advance;  $2.50 to United States points.  C. F. Kates, Owner and Editor.  ORESTON, B.C.. FRIDAY. AUG. 17  Needs Exptaining  Disappointing���������writ with a  capital D���������is the most likely  unpartizan word that does justice  to the deliberations of the 900  Liberals who gathered at Winnipeg  last week to enunciate the policy  of western Liberals in the coming  federal election.  In promulgating a platform on  which to go before the country  the delegates took advanced  ground all along the line, but  when it came to elucidating its  war policy it fell down miserably,  offering [something which, in view  or all the facts, is hardly fish, fiesh  nor good red herring.  Tbe war resolution  adopted  by  the convention is as follows:  "That in times of peril the entire  resources of the conntrv, moral and  material, man power and wealth, are  justly disposable by the state for the  preservation of its national liberties.  That the imperative duty of the  Canadian people is the continued  vigorous prosecution of the war hy  the maintenance in unimpaired  strength at the front of our fighting  forces and the taking of all steps  necessary to secure the required reia-  fo������x*enients for this purpose,"  On the face of it the foregoing is  a fairly circumspect statement of  case; implying conscription if not  explicitly stating it. x>ut an  incident that showed at least some  insincerity on the question was  furnished when J. Gi Lurriff. M.P.  for Assiniboia, moved an amendment to make the latter part read  the taking of all steps  necessary to secure the required  reinforcements for this purpose by  compulsion if necessary."  The press reports all agree that  Mr. LurifFs amendment was voted  down by an almost overwhelming  majority, after which the gathering rose and sang God Save the  King���������and most people will agree  that the sentiment was very  appropriate.  As to leadership in the coming  fight the following resolution was  accepted:  Resolved, that this convention  places on record its admiration for the  life and work of the greatest of all  Canadians, the Rt. Hon. Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, and of his earnest endeavor  to carry out his duty as he sees it in  the interests of all Canada, respecting  our part in this world struggle. We  e'xpress the hope that his undoubted  ability, his long experience, his master  statesmanship may be utilized in reuniting the people of Canada in this  great crisis and the successful prosecution of the war and the carrying out  e>f the platform laid down in this  convention."  Robbed of just a little of its  fulsomness as touching Sir Wilfrid's great Canadianism, beoause  there have been occasions when the  peerless leader has failed to secure  the following of the English-speak -  irg Liberals, the fore part of the  resolution may be taken as the  usual thing under such circumstances, generally speaking.  The last few clauses, however,  arc not so palatable in view of Sir  Wilfrid's utterances and the actions  and statements of his coin patriots  in Quebec���������tho element, his admirers asbtire, Sir Wilfrid prefers  ut stand by oven in this crisis for  tlio rather specious reason that if  he forcsakos them thoy will rally  to soma othor loader  whoso handl-  same time endorses the leadership  of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, a self-  announced anti-conscriptionist���������  well, to put it mild, the gentlemen  who framed and endorsed the platform have a mighty low estimate of  the intelligence of the rank and  file of the real Liberal party. A  writer puts the situation admirably  when he says:  "Will those gentlemen at Winnipeg who say they are not anti-  consoriptionists, but intend to  support Sir Wilfrid Laurier, explain how they reconcile the two  positions ?  "As for conscription, Sir Wilfrid  spoke against it, voted against it,  and carried with him against it  every member whose vote he oould  command. If he goes to the country  as leader of the Liberal, party, that  party must accept and support his  polioy on conscription.  "A man may be a good Liberal  and support consoription. He can-  be a consoriptionist and support Sir  Wilfrid."  As a very prominent Liberal remarked on Friday, after reading  the convention proceedings, if no  further effort is made to put the  party in squarely behind conscription and displace Laurier "their  goose is cooked."    So mote it be.  SS  a  ing of them and their ultimate end  none might foretell.  Had this been a gathering of  fruit f������row<������rf������, ov^n, tryinp* to  formulate ������ nulling plan that would  protect themselves and at tho same  time do justice to tho middleman  and consumer, ono might complacently nit tight and hope for tho  host, lint in a time liko thin to  havc a nmall army of Liberal  politician!! put forth a .statement  which wc nro iiMHiirud plurfgcn tlio  party to  conscription   and  at tho  Due   to  the  hot   weather,   the  scarcity  of labor and   the consequent very   busy  season  everyone  hereabouts appears to  be  having  just now, it may be well to suspend  final judgment as  to  the seeming  falsity of the logic afore quoted  as  to   waking   a   man   up   properly  when his pocketbook is endangered.  What we are trying,   to get at is  this, that  although  it  is  now almost   three   weeks    since   official  notices came that the 1917   sur-tax  on real  and   personal   property is  now   due   and    payable,   nothing  tangible has eventuated tending to  end or mend a matter  that   must  have been the cause of much extra  labor in the early part of August  for   the   recording angel charged  with setting down  the good deeds  and also the  bad  ones of resident  British Columbians.  And the aggrevating feature of  this inactivity is that unless we  get a move on soon 1918 will be  with us and we will have to pay  all over again, with only this  consolation that thanks to a  generous boost in assessments last  fall the new year's taxes can hardly  be higher than the one we are now  trying to finance.  And, as if to add insult to injury,  although the assessor informs valley  taxes have been paid up better this  year than for some seasons back,  practically nothing has been spent  even on necessary repair road work.  The only way out of it is local  self government via an organized  raral municipality, whioh is now  admitted by all as the only businesslike way of handling affairs;  giving better value for tho money,  ensuring a lower tax rate, providing somo say as to where and how  work shall bo dono and who'll do  it, and an on-the-spot representative  institution that can inform as to  whats what and why���������and that  can bo disponsod with if unsatisfactory at loaat onco a yoar.

This is a line that should have reached us for spring trade, but owing to the  manufacturer being unable to make delivery they just came to hand this week.  We have them in sizes from 2J to 7, and at this figure you are buying these  at August wholesale prices, so rapid has been the advance in leather costs.

B BB%S  W cScsSa   Sf BafJMS99S  ' *,,  A looal oitizen, who should know  whereof ho speaks, estimates that  the exceptionally dry summor will  mean a loss of at least $30,000 to  tho ranohers of Croston Valloy this  soason.  Allowing that ample moisburo  would havo givon us a maximum  strawberry orop, and admitting  that early-season cotimato of 20,000  urates of thoso wae corroot���������whioh  would socm to bo so judging by  tho quantity of orator* aotnally  purchased���������tho difference botween  tho 9000 shipped and tho 20,000  oxpootod at $2 por orate, would  total up to at leant '$20,000, with  no account takon of othor soft  fruits, vegetables, and tho shrink-  ago in apples.  Au irrigation pipo lino, starting  at Arrow Crook, and brought to a  central point to onouro tho cmoient  watering of the Creston and Erickson sections, has been fairly  authoritatively estimated to cost  less than $20,000, we are told. Just  how much more would have to be  added on to this to place the water  on each individual ranch is problematical, depending to some extent on how extensively those  interested could be induced to cooperate in putting in the neoossary  pipes to bring the water to their  ranches.  That the irrigating idea has  caught on there is no gainsaying.  Wo know of at least ono rancher  who is liable to go partners with a  neighbor almost half a mile away  to oonneot up to a stream now  running entirely to waste almost  two miles distant, if, our memory  sorvos us right.  1917, of course, has boon tho  dryost of all reoont seasons, bnt at  that it is safe to say that for Ave or  six years back an abuunanoo of  water in July would havo brought  many moro orates of raspberries  to ripening, to say nothing of tho  good it would havo dono hay and  vegetables most years as woll.

Messrs. Bennett, R. Stark and  Hayes, the board of trade's special  publicity committee in connection  with Kootenay Flats reclamation as  a returned soldiers' proposition, have  selectedrthi8,week for their effort in  this cpnnection. The story, which  follows, has been sent out ih typewritten form to all the daily papers in  B.C.4 as Well as all the weeklies in  Kootenay and Boundary, and the  biggerone^iu the Okanagan, with a  nicely^jworded request for its publication in full or in part, and an editorial  rceferenceto it if conyenient. In addition it lias been supplied to the  leading* dailies in'the prairie provinces,  WAth. a.-, like ' rpquest. . Here's the  article. - ' ���������  Oreston, B.C.. Board of Trade', is  taking up with the National Service  Board of Canada, as well as the provincial rauthorities, a very comprehensive seheme of providing employment for -returned soldiers, which, if  undertaken, will, when completed,  prOyide also an ideal location under  most favorable conditions for those of  the veterans who care to follow agriculture as an after-war vocation.  Briefly stated the proposition is to  reclaim 25,000 acres of land in Kootenay Riyer "Valley, employing returned  menoir" the work and allowing such  of them as care to attempt agriculture  tracts of the reclaimed land adjoining  each Other, so as to enable the B.C.  Goyernment to put into practical;  effect the returned soldier farm colony  scheme. ��������� ^   ���������':  The scheme is one unique in its way.  being the uncovering from flood waters  of a big inland delta of richest alluvial  deposit brought down by the Kootenay River and formed at the southern  extremity of Kootenay Lake,  The Kootenay River,' with its  tributaries, draining the whole of the  western slopes of the Rocky Motm-  tains in B.C., and the* Selkirk ranges,  after a bold swoep southward running  into the United States as far as Bonners Ferry, Idaho, from that point  turns directly north again to B.C.* and  ;Kootenay -Lake. -At - the same time  the Lardo River an"d others run into  the" lake'-at'the other end and the  combined volume; of water passes out  toward the  centre of the lake by a  Sassage called the West Arm* like the  ownward*stroke: of a gigantic-T,:past  Nelson and Bonnington Falls to join  the Columbia River.  The outlet of the West Arm is, however, so restricted, in size that it is  unable ~ to cope with the enormous  volume of water which every spring  rushes down from the melting snows  of this vast watershed, with the result  that Kootenay Lake itself is formed,  for the time being, into an inland 8ea������  raising its level during June and July  at time 20feet above its normol height.  When this takes place the Kootenay  River meets this flood-tide at its  entrance to the lake heavily laden  with earthy matter from the mountain, deposits them th*fere, a film of  fertility which in the course of unknown geological time has become a  bed a hundred feet in depth of richest  alluvial soil.  The reclamation has solely to do  with the enlarging of the lake's outlet.  In 1918 a preliminary survey was made  by Engineer Muerling, who in his  findings reported favourably on tho  project, but asked for a more thorough  examination of the Whole territory  before making a final decision. With  the outbreak of tho war the next year  the scheme was, for tho time being,  abandoned. American engineers  have also spent two seasons on the  work and their report, made public  about two months ago, was strongly  in favour of tho work being proceeded  with, tho estimated cost being a little  ovor $2,000,000.  Tho fertility of tho soil has been  proven. In years when tho snowfall  is light, and there is no flooding, these  lands readily yield 100 bushels of oats,  05 bushels of wheat and IG tons of  potatoes to tho acre. Including tho  Idaho area almost 05,000 acres would  bo reclaimed, and that State ia pledged  to pay its pro rata per-acro cost of the  work.  Tho land is in ono of tho older settled parts of B.C. interior, already  supplied with railway communication  by tho Crow's Nest lino, has good  highways, educational facilities and  eyery modem convenience, so that tho  proyinco would be at no expense in  providing thoBo. Tho bench lands  surrounding this to-bo-roclaimed area  are ono of the finest fruit areas in all  B.C. Tho climate Is idoal. It is  figured that theso reclaimed lands  would ho eapahlo of carrying 20.000 to  *TO,000 hood of dairy stock whon laid  down to pasture.  Tho week la apiu-opi lately chosen co  far as B.C.

This room,  too, was quiet as the places shc had  traversed in reaching it���������it might  have been a sound-proof, fire-proof,  steel-walled, vault in the underground  regions of a Lombard Street bank.  She heard no sound prefacing the entrance of von Roon; the door opened  ���������noiselessly to admit him. And be-  lund-him Hilda saw the Tjland countenance of Mr. Barthelemy.  ^The two men advanced to the tabic  and drew up chairs to it. Barthelemy  rested his^iands on the exlge of the  table, Joined the tip's of his fingers  together, and looked over the rims  of his spectacles first at Hilda, then  at von Roon. And vou Roon at once  plunged into the business of the moment.  "Verv well, then," he said. "Now  we talk." He glanced at Hilda. "You  may have concluded." he; continued,  "seeing that he is present, that Mr.  Barthelemy is with me���������with iis:���������in  this affair. He. and. I are���������co-speculators in it. Yoil are now to come  in. Mr. Barthelemy"���������he turned to  the proprietor of the Amaranth���������  "Mr. Barthelemy is already acquainted with what you have done at Ash-  ininster,.. at my suggestion and on  my instructions. Mr. Barthelemy approves."  Mr. Barthelemy nodded his great  ii cad. and tapped his fingers together.  "Excellent, excellent'" he said unct-  nouslyl "A very nice beginning���������  nothing could have been better. I  congratulate. Mrs. Tressingham,  heartily."     ���������; '  Hilda nodded her acknowledgments. Then she turned sharply on  von  Roon.  "Come!" she said. "What is it?  The   scheme."  Von Roon smiled, and drew his  chair nearer to the table.  "Yes," he said, "the scheme. It is  a very simple thing���������in idea, and lo  loll. Listen, then. This young Mr.  Islington has been appointed Civil  Lord of the Admiralty. He will accordingly come into possession of  all the secrets of the- Admiralty. He  is, therefore, a person lo know. Now  ������������������you  know  him.     Eh?"  "And."   said   Barthelemy,   watching  Hilda    closely,     "Airs.     Tressingham  .will   no   doubt   make  it  hcr  business  to know hint better���������much better."  ' Hilda gave  Barthelemy a look and  turned lo von Roon.  "What do you want?" shc asked in  a matter-of-fact tone.  "This," answered von Roon. "There  will shortly be in existence, on paper, for very secret circulation only  ���������amongst those of the Government  ���������who arc particularly interested in it,  a scheme for an important���������a most  important���������development in the future arrangements of the British  Navy. It is so important that, to  possess knowledge of it, those for  whom .wi���������Mi*. Barthelemy and my-  ���������self���������are acting, will pay a great  , price. Naliirally, this young man  will be in possession of the papers  relating to this scheme. And"���������-he  ised   for a     moment    and     looked  "You realize that it will not'be an  easy matter," observed Hilda.  "We realize that it will not be at  all an easy matter," "replied von  Roon.  "Then perhaps you have some suggestions to make as to how I am to  do it?" she said.    "Tell me them."  But von Roon shook his head with  i a smile* and Barthelemy spread   out  ihis plump fingers. ���������  [ "No!" said von Roon. "As to the  method and manner, we would rath-  : er leave that to you. As a -woman,  ! you will have no difficulty in evolv-  j ing your own scheme. Pursue your  i own  plans���������it is better."  "Far better," agreed Bartnclem'v.  "Unaided."  "Very well," said Hilda, aftcr a  pause. "Very well. I shall do my  best.    And now, what do I get?"  The question was prompt. Yon  Roo.n's ansvv*er came as promptly. "1  "Place that paper in my hands for  one hour and you shall have five  thousand pounds," he said.  "Cash," supplemented Barthelemy.  "Cash!"  Hilda nodded without speaking.  Presently she rose. The two men  rose w*itli her.  "That is all���������just now," said Barthelemy, looking at von Roon.  "Ah!" answered von Roon. "For  the present."  They moved towards the door, but  Hilda  suddenly  paused.  "A moment,' 'she said. "Mr. Barthelemy, on my return tonight I noticed  a new member of the club. A man,  Mr. Richard A vory.  to know* who is he?  Barthelemy, lifting  door, paused in the  wouderinglv at Hilda  "Mr. Richard Avory ?>' he said.  "Why yes, I know him. Of course  I know everyone who joints the  Amaranth. You, too, then, know  him?"  "I  have met him  once.  Under  cir-  "  surprising  at  cumstanccs which made it  to me to meet him���������here.'  Barthelemy stared at her;  then  von Roon.    And Hilda went on:  "I met this Mr. Avory at the Ellington's at lunch. He seemed to mc  to be���������well, in pursuit of Miss Marcia Ellington. Now, they are so very  Puritanical and priggish that "  Barthelemy laughed, waving -a  hand.  "Ah, my dear madam, the young  man is in pursuit of his young lady's  fortune!" he said.- "I know all..about  that little matter. Re-assure yourself, Mr. Avory has been known to  me for some time.    lie is���������all right."  "Oh!" said Hilda, taken aback.  "Well, I only thought that it might  bc a little awkward for me, as things  are, to be meeting Miss Ellington's  young man at the Amaranth. You  see?" -'   _      ,  Barthelemy  waved  his  hand  again.  "It is all right���������all right!" he said.  "Re-assure yourself, then, my dear  lady. I know all the frequenters of  tbe Amaranth. And now"���������he looked at his companions���������"a little play,  perhaps an hour, eh?" .  Now,   I   want  Do you?"  a   hand   to   the  action,   looking*  hopes, but Ayliom he considers to be  a little raw and more than a little  rash. As for Hilda, she stood for a  second or two drumming her slender  fingers on the table from which they  had just risen; when "she looked up  it was to give Mr. Barthelemy a  quick, curious glance in which there  was a certain amount of suspicion.  "Before I say anything about that  Mr. Barthelemy," she said, "I'm going to ask you a question and I expect a straight answer. Is Isidore  Bernstein still coming here?"  Mr. Barthelemy glanced at von  Roon and smiled. It was a smile .of  knowledge and understanding, and a  swift one; he turned and transferred  it to Hilda, but in the mere act of  turning it became transformed and  showed itself to hcr as a fatherly and  almost protecting smile; a smile tha*t  would have done credit to a patriarch.  "My dear lady!" said Mr. Barthelemy, "you have been out of town.  Consequently vou have not heard tiie  news."  "Having had little else to do," retorted Hilda, "I have read the Times  and thc Morning Post from the front  page to the last every day���������every  scrap  of  them."  (To Be Continued.)  CHAPTER X.  Hereditary Passion  For a moment these three people,  all concerned with each other in more  than one venture, yet conscious thai  each had ventures which were peculiarly their own individual affairs,  eyed-one another narrowly. Mr.  Barthelemy looked at his two companions as a highly respectable spiel* sunk. The more submarines are for-  er might be supposed to regard twojeed to depend upon their torpedoes,  eligible flies for whom-he entertains | as the arming of merchant ships-in-  a wish that they could bc transform-1 creases,   the   less   effective,     they  are  Not-Effective With Torpedo Only  Iii the French official report of losses of merchantmen by submarines it  is especially signified tliat of twenty-  eight attacked, eighteen escaped,  twelve of them from gunfire. -Only  two vessels attacked with guns  were  Fly Poison Perils  A Recent Bulletin Contains Warping  Against All Composed of  Arsenic  In the war on flies there is peri!  iu the use of arsenic '">oison. Tlic  press repoits of poison cases are appalling, especially when one realizes  that they show only a fraction of the  actual number. But this fraction'  amounted to 106 cases in the past  three years, a large percentage of  which were fatal. All because people use arsenic fly paper or thc arsenic poison cans to. rid their homes  of flies, putting this deadliest of all  poisons within children's reach.*  Doctor Ernest A. Sweet, . passed  assistant surgeon of the United  States Public Health Service has this  to say in a public health report bulletin, entitled "The Transmission of  Disease by Flies," mention should be^  made merely for the purpose of condemnation of those fly poisons composed of arsenic. Fatal cases of the  poisoning of children through the  use of such compounds are far too  frequent, and owing to the resemblance of arsenical poisoning to summer diarrohea and cholera Infantum it  ed into members of his own species .-  Von' Roon regarded Hilda with a  certain anxiety���������'the sort of anxiety  that one sometimes sees in the eyes  of an older and more experienced  player of a game who is put in  charge  of  a   tvro  of   whom   hc    has  proving.���������New   York   World.  A carman charged with overloading his horse was asked how heavy a  load hc had on his truck. "About a  ton," hc replied, "but it was. all light  stuff."  is ocueveu mat the cases reported  do not, by any means, comprise the  total: Arsenical fly destroying devices must therefore be rated as extremely dangerous and should' never  be used, even if other measures are  not  at  hand.."  With this government .warning',  mothers should find other means to  keep the home clear of flies.
