STEAD  Published By Special An'ang.c-  nient.With the Author.  ���������'*���������*' (Continued)  Tenderly he turned the body, to a  more comfortable position, layinc his  folded coat beneath the head for a  pillow. Unloosened the shirt about  the neck, and far down the heaving  che.st saw the sodden red that marked  his*:wound. Rain fell in scattered  drops, and he brought another blanket  from the cabin, caring little now for  the silent shadow of his greater tragedy. He spread the blanket over the  wounded boy, and sat down by his  side, cdfcessing. his temples with his  big fingers, and wondering what to do  next.  As he sat the helplessness of his  position grew upon him. He was deep  in the foothills, many miles, as far as  he knew, from the home of any settler. In daylight he could, no doubt,  find his way back to town, but daylight might be too -iate. He did not  know whether Allan was dying on his  -���������- hands at that moment. Certainly to  attempt to move him 'in'-the"'buggy  would be dangerous in the extreme.  And as  he' sat he  thought of the  missing money, the fruit of his life's  labour,  snatched  from him in a moment in the darkness.     The loss did  not hurt -him as deeply as he might  have thought; he was numbecf by the  greater blow that hung over him. .....' If  Allan would'only live! . ���������'. . The  boy had been his constant companion  since boyhood. All his hopes, all his  ambitions, which had found their expression in his years of feverish toil,  had been wrapped about Allan. He  had no one else. Y . . His better  self revolted, at that thought. "You  have a wife and daughter," it said,  "ready to share your life as^ soon as  you are ready to share theirs.". He  forced his mind from that phase of  his position, but it reverted to it.again  and again. He could not. wander in  memory up the path of his boy's life  without meeting his boy's mother.  And all the pain and unhappiness of  the later years���������how it cut like an evil  bank of fog across the once bright  course of their career] But he had  suffered for their sakes, holding fast  to his own course because he knew it  to be best. . . . Best?" And it  had brought* him to* this?. . . .  The question would not down. Rather  than relax an iota from his own purposes he had broken Up his family;  he~had crushed them under the wheels  of his inflexible will, and now. that  same will had driven his son to destruction and himself to ruin.  It is not easy for a man who has  laid out a career and "followed it with  aU the energy of a virile nature, recasting his gods from time to time to  conform with , the evolution of his  ideals, but recasting always in the  mould of his own will rather than, any  vessel, of creed or persuasion���������it is  not easy for such a man to stop at  fifty and say, "I was wrong." It requires a break .in his process of evolution a shock sufficiently powerful to  pulyerize his gods before his face, to  drive home the truth that they were  not gods at all but merely idols of his  own creation. In Harris's later life  two idols had gro**,vn up to the exclusion of all others; they were the  wealth which he had buiided with his  hands and the boy Allan about whom  he wrapped all the affection of his  nature; and they had crumbled to  dust even while he worshipped.  He found a flask thrown from some  camper's pack, and filled it with  water at the -mountain stream that  rushed by a few rods below the cabin.  He placed the liquid to the boy's lips  and fancied that some drops found  entrance. He had staunched the  wound as best he could with fragments torn from the lining of his coat,  and he sat down again to watch. Until morning he could do nothing more.  Then some camper, lumberman, or  surveyor might happen along the  road. If not, he would have to move  Allan at all risks..  It. took time for him to realize the  utterness .with  which  his  plans  had  Nervous  Breakdown  The extreme depression and  discouragement which comes over  onc at times is the most alarming  symptom of nervous exhaustion.  This letter ia a message of hope  to all who find themselves in this  unfortunate condition.  Mrs. Geo. T. Tingley, Albert,  N.B., writes:���������  "For yars I wni in ������ very nervous,  run-down condition, wai much deprm-  ed in spirit* and suffered a great deal  al lime*. The leant noiie would irri-,  late me nnd at times I felt as though  I ^ertiv'nly would go crazy. I eon-  suited  different  doctors  to  no ������ fleet.

As the night wore on he  was able to weigh his disaster in a  more balanced mind, but its magnitude grew an the weighing. From  prosperous ambition he had been  swept in an hour to penniless ruin.  His destruction was almost complete.  The old farm, the scene of his labours  ���������his and Mary's���������was gone. If Allan should die there remained nothing  more.  Suddenly he fancied he heard the  sound of horses' hoofs in the clay road  along the hillside, now softened with  the light rain. The sound ceased as  suddenly as it began, and it occurred  to him that it might be one of the robbers returning. The lantern was  burning low, but as a precaution he  now turned it. quite out. There were  some cartridges in Allan's pocket; lie  felt for them and "decided to bring the  gun out of the cabin. YBut before he  could put this decision into effect he  observed the form of a man moving  silently but briskly towai'd the cabin.  He held his breath and remained obscured in the bushes. Dimly he discerned the form stop at the door and  peer into the darkness.  There was no doubt in his mind of.  Harris  as  to  the  evil   intent  of the  visitor.      He had come on horseback  near the building, and had then dismounted and stole up to it on foot.  That in itself was sufficiently incriminating.    One who was,riding through  the mountains on a legitimate errand,  and who knew nothing of the night's  affray,  would  take  no   such  precautions;      Unarmed as he was, Harris  resolved that the robber, probably the  murderer of his  son,  should not on  any account escape him.     With the  blanket.which he had brought to cover Allan wais a bag ih which they /had  tarried oats for their horses; this he  found in the darkness, and stole after  his victim.     He overtook him standing at the door In apparent hesitancy  whether to enter the buildings-   Without an instant's warning Harris threw  the bag about his head, ancl with a  quick twist of his powerful wrist had  his prisoner securely gagged.   Throwing him violently to the ground, lie  tied the sack in a hard knot, and, despite all struggles, dragged him back  to where Allan lay.      Here    he    relighted the lantern, and, cutting part  of   the   blanket   into strips with his  pocket-knife, securely tied his captive  hand and foot.     At. first the prisoner  tried to talk, but he could not speak  intelligibly through the closely-drawn  sack, and presently he gavo up and  lay in silence In the wet grass.  And  again   the leaden  night wore  on, broken  only by  occasional gurglings in the throat, of Allan, or futile  struggles   by   the   prisoner.     Harris  felt little  curiosity    concerning    the  Identity of the man In   gags   before  him, or the victim of Allan's gun In  the doorway.     Tbey   wore   absolute  .strangers to him, and he even feared  that Jf ho should look Into tho face of  the one that still lived his anger over  i ho si huhuU. upon Allan, would hurst, till  bounds and he would kill his victim  on thes Hpot.     He was slowly forced to  the conclusion that Rile* ami Gardiner  had also met with foul play, and that  no help was now to be expected from  that    quarter.      The    light rain had  drifted past, and bright stars gleamed  through great rents In tho shattered  clouds.     The gibbous moon, too, looked down, and  Its  cold  light intenai-  fled tho  Hhadows,     The night grow  colder, and Harris spread his own outer tfaraients upon his son, and nt hist  lay down with Allan In his arms that  hfs might communicate heat from his  body to the Htnufgllnft frame so sorely robbed of blood,     And oven Jn his  dlstrenit and his terrific tear for Allan  thftro cam't som������ r������mlnIsc������nco of old  d-Altf^ht I-* th������ f*'������*l nf ihe boy'tt llmfow  Against his, and ff*������*������t,������ footed  memory  ran hn/k Jttfftln to fh*r������ -"hlldhooil of Al  lan. But onits way it met the childhood of Beulah, and conjured up the  mother-face leaning in tenderness  over the sick-beds of infancy. And  John Harris buried his face in. the  heaving.chest o������-#ds child and ,wept in  his grief and loneliness.  Just as the first bar'sof grey in the  eastern sky jproclaimed approaching  dawn,.the sound,of horses' hoofs came  distinctly up the valley. -Harris drew  himself into, a' sitting ...posture, and  listened. Allan was still - breathing,  and apparently with less effort than  earlier in the nigh**. The sound of  the h.prp,erJ"came nearer-;and nearer.  At last1 it was in1 the road just below,  and a moment later would have passed by, had not Harris called out. His  voice sounded strange and distant in  his own ears, and cost him an unwonted effort.  - Sergeant Grey, instantly swung his  horse from the road and, dismounting,  proceeded in .the direction of the  voice.  .Harris told his story with such coherence as he could. He and his son-  had come up into the hills to* arrange  for the purchase of a property which  theyhad become interested in through  a third party, Gardiner. They carried with them a large sum of money  as proof of the .sincerity of their intentions. At this little cabin they  were to be joined by Gardiner and by  another, named Riles, who* also was  taking an interest in the property. As  they waited in the cabin, and as he,  Harris, slept after his long drive, they  were suddently set upon by outlaws.  Allan- shot one down���������the* body still  lay in the doorway���������but was himself  badly -wounded, and had not spoken  since.' Harris had encountered another, but after a severe fight the robber had ^escaped. The little black  bag in which the money was carried  was gone with all its contents. Although he had waited ..all night in  great anxiety, Gardiner and Riles had  failed to appear, and it could only be  supposed that they too had met with  foul play. But some hours after the  assault one of the party had returned,  dismounted from his horse at some  distance, and stolen softly up to,the  shanty. -"Harris* had followed him,  and, taking hire by surprise,-had been  able to make his prisoner;  Sergeant Grey looked Jrom Harris  to... Allan, and then to the" prisoner,  who seemed to lie in a semi-conscious  condition amid his bonds and gags.  "You were foolish to* come into the  hills with so much- money alone," he  said. "I would have been at your  service for the asking, and this would  not have happened. But. now that ���������;��������� it  has happened, the first thing is to  provide for the wounded man, and the  next is* to place this suspect in custody.

The mounted policeman made a  brief examination of Allan, as best he  could in the gt?ey dawn,* for the lantern now had no oil. "He has not  bled very much," he said. "He has  a strong frame and ought, to have a  fighting chance.: I will just have a  look at the scene of the crime, and  then we will move him." -,*'���������*  *' He made a hurried--, sui-vey of the  cabin,merely satisfying himself that  the man in the doorway,' was (juite  dead, afid then, with, Harris's assistance, quickly found the horses and  harnessed them to the buggy.

They placed the wounded and still  unconscious Allan in the buggy-as  gently as they could, and then Grey  gave his attention to the prisoner.

Hayes, Editor and Owner,  ORESTON,   B.C., FKIDAY, FEB. 17  SSotssestio Pmok  Coincident with the announcement that girls are once more likely to display their ears, Mayor  Little ventures the opinion that it  is not locally believed that the  sweet young things have missed  anything worth while during the  time they have been  under cover.  that even he who runs may read,  and to faciltate this^praiseworthy  efibrt we bespeak the same generous consideration as has been ao  corded us in the year just ended.  A community without a newspaper  is pretty much in the same pre-  dicaament as the young man who  winks at his girl over the telephone;  he knows perfectly well what is go  ing on, but nobody else does.  A. D. Manuel is of opinion that  Mr. Edmondson's poetical classic,  '"Hail to jCreston Valley," would  have been complete and entire if  the second last stanza had read  something like this:  And when his majesty the king  Ascends the steep of heaven,  May the first colonial to greet him  there  Be Creston's B,, ft; Bevg;n=  "Vain hope," quoth Mayor Little.  Certainly the winter has been  unusual. From Kaslo comes the  report that during last month the  village blacksmtth's^supply of hard  cider actually froze solid. JLh^T  Kootenaian tries to account for the  phenomena by suggesting that the  wet goods were made from water  core apples. The explanation, however, hardly explains, as it is quite  well known that the smithy enjoye  a well deserved reputation for home  brewing a brand of hard stuff that  hitherto has always been many degrees plus frostproof.  Time certainly flies. It was not  until Thursday last, when we.came  to change the date line on tfaefront  page, that we became,aWare that  The Review had completed thirteen  years of a very useful existence and  was getting off to an auspicious  start on its fourteenth year. We  take this opportunity to express  full appreciation of the generous  support accprded the three departments of the business: Circulation,  advertising ^nd commercial print  ing during the year. Thanks are  also due in very full measure to a  splendid staff of reporters whose  efforts enable us to each week serve  up the news of the whole Valley  area. As in the p#sb the effort of  The Review wilkbe to keep Creston  Valley on tbe map in letters so bold  In a, bulletin issued by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics for the  first six months of 1921 it is stated  that more than 21 per cett. of all  the deaths reported in that period  were of children under one year of  age. Recently a Canada-wide  child welfare effort has been insti-  tuted by the federal authorities,  and in which all the provinces are  co-operating, with Mrs. Garland  Foster of Nelson named to organize th<S effort in the Kootenay-  Boundary area. In view of these  startling figures and the effort that  is b^ing made to oope with thee situation the Women's Institute might  do the community a good tnr^n by  having Mrs. Foster here to deliver  an address on such a vitally important question.  The last and best poetical effort  of T. M. Edmondson has at least  been efficacious in inscribing his  name in a niohe in the literary hall  of fame.- During tbe literature  lesson on Tuesday vice-principal  Pearce had occasion to ask the class  to give him the names of a few of  the foremost poets and when after  being told of Tennyson, Shakespeare, Longfellow, Goldsmith, and  some others of the older school of  veraefiers, the name of T. M. Edmondson was put forward, by  unanimous vote of the class it was  agreed thatk.his name_should stand  amongst the great and near great  producers of epic poetry. It will  be well for, the scholars who will be  competing for the prize in writing  at the 1922 fall fair to keep this  poem in mind, as some of the verses  .of it will be used for penmanship  competition at the exhibition.  The detail   of  our   leader   last  i*  week, in which  attention was called to the fact that Creston  Valley  had voted   "wet"  in-tbe plebiscite  in October,  1920,  caused no little  surprise amongst   Review, reader;  apparently, the popular impression  being that this section had turned  in a "dry" majority.    The returns  are      incomplete     due      to     the  fact that on   plebiscite night  the  ballot taker at Lister failed tomake  public the result of the poll at that  place, but when these were subse  quently obtained the vote  showed  a wet lead of about 25.      Of eight  polls in the  Vallev five  turned in  pluralities for government coutrol:  Lister, Reclamation Farm,  Kitchener, Wynndel and Sirdar.

'.  At Kaslo this winter the attendance at some of the ultra fashionable dances is so large that in order to expedite matters supper is  sometimes served in the shooting  gallery next door to the drill shed.  Despite the inappropriate appell-  atic n of the sometime supper room  the Kootenaian is still able to truthfully state that so far none of the  guests have been guilty, of  converting the hour of refreshment  into intemperance or excess by returning to the dance even half shot.  Definite announcement that Hon.  Dr. King has retired from provincial government affairs, and has accepted the portfolio of publio works  in the Dominion cabinet,  and will  seek election in EastKootenay, will  be welcome news .to those who keep  tab   on    ptblic   affairs   generally.  Just why Creston, Valley  may be  selfishly interested   in   his   translation to Ottawa lies partly in the  fact that for the past two years  hard surfacing road  work in this  area has been  done under  the as-  sumption that the Ottawa authorities would stand 40 per cent, of the  cost, though up to the present  no  suohconsideration has been received.  As already in   the neighborhood of  possibly $20,000 has been spent on  this class of road construction,  if  Dr. King speeds up the payment of  tha $8000   already   overdue   that  amount alone would take eare of  Here's Your New Suit!

A very general feeling evidently exists in the \ alley as to our inability  to'meet, the requirements of our tax  notices.

Dear Sir:  In.the absence of the Honourable  thp JSfinister-wha-r.is. confined^" to his  home owing to sickness, 1 beg to ac-.  knowledge receipt of your letter of the,  17th instant.  -Replying to ��������� ?our petition, which  reads as follows: "That the time at.  payment clause as it applies this year  be rescinded, and that the old conditions of payment --be re-established",  I desire to point' *6ut tbe following  facts: _ " " "  Previously iand taxes were due on  January 2nd of each  year;   now   the  time has been extended to February  IStjb, or six weeks to the advantage,of.  the taxpayer,  and, as stated by you,'  the discount applied until  the 30th of,  June compared with the imposition of  the penalty clause becoming' effective  on the 30th of April.   You state, how-  that  Springtime  is   the   most  '6f   the   year .for   the  farmer to pay his taxes, and 1 presume  f:-c::: your remarks that the most suitable time is in. the Autumn  when the  crops are realised into cash.     If this is  so, is it not to the advantage of the  farmer to have the Act in its present  state?   For exam pie, take the farmer  who pays his taxes, say in the month  of September or .October. ,he would be  penalised either five or six per cent,  according to  the month of payment,  whereas formerly he would have had  10 per cent,   additional   to   pay.   For  instance,- under the old scheme a person was penalised, 10 per cent. wheth=  er he* paid his taxes on the 1st of July  or the 31st of December, whereas under the new scheme, if he pays his taxes in May he pays 1- per cent, penalty,  in June 2 pe*r cent,  and so on until in  December he pays 8 per cent, after the  31st of December however the  rate is  12 per cent, per annum as against the  former rate of'"& per  cent, the latter  having proved;' insufficient,   it   being  lower than bank or mortgage interest.  Further it is no]b- always a full 12% per  .annum, as it requiies, a full calendar*  month to eari^the 1 per ceni. penalty.  For example "'take the "case of a man  who - has not paid his taxes on May  31s,t, he has-becbiue liable to a penalty,  of 2 per cent,   but no. further penalty  can be imposed until J^iine has passed,  su if he paid oa Ajv before lhe SOth of  June he would Escape th������rpenalty for  June.

"From the earliest days o������ lon������ distance wirelgss telegraphy* the difficulties in reception due to vagrant or.natural electric ^aves and atmospheric  electric discharges passing down the  receiving, aerial have been the bane  of the wireless-telegraphist," Professor  John  Ambrose  Fleming,  of London University, told the Royal Society  of Arts.      He said:  "Having' regard to the fact- that  the positive atmospheric electric potential' gradient j~t. the earth in-  i creases at the rat-erol" about 100 volts  per meter of ascent, roughly speaking,  if" is not surprising that aerials several hundred teet high may be traversed by quite large currents due to this  cause alone, which may utterly swamp  the feeble signal currents."

Most of , the - cost of  this work must be left to private enterprise since it is by private enterprise  that the new knowledge will be exploited, properties laid out. employees set  to work, and production-carried'on. **-���������*,. -������������������������/'  But if every branch of Canadian enterprise starts independently in the  pursuit of new scientific information, there is bound to be tremendous'waste.  Many duplicate laboratories Would be required. Much over-lapping of effort  would go on. In one laboratory time would be lost in proving or disproving  What had already been learned in a laboratory somewhere'* else���������and perfectly willing to share the knowledge. --"--  A vast amount of energy and money would*.be wasted on ground wdrk���������  -instead of having the ground work done as far as possible, iu common and  the money available for research concentrated'on the really, new effort. YTo  discover a quite simple formula might cost so much for laboratory and men {  as to discourage the enterprise. Y;  A lack of organization would be, therefore, a drag on the wheel. .  It has been suggested in such circumstances that the universities should  be mobolized. But this view has had to be abandoned, not. merely because universities are scattered, but because university routine cannot meet  the requirements of the kind of research the business world now needs without damaging the usefulness of the iiuiversity to its students.  ��������� It has also been suggested that the scientific staffs attached fo certain  Government departments could satisfy this heed. But tlio..work, which is  needed, cannot be done entirely by "the Dominion Government. 'In many  cases investigation can be carried out* to the best advantage under one or more  of the Provincial Governments, or under Federal and Provincial authorities  in co-operation. Moreover it will often happen that the work cannot be completed as a practical and commercial success without calling oh the financial and other help oi" the industries which are concerned. In all such cases  the work lies outside the duties of auy Government department and should  be directed by a bodywith greater independence and freedom from administrative duties.  Thus in* England, in the United States, in Germany, and in Japan, the  need foe pome? central bureau of research to synthesize fhe efforts of ils individuals Itas resulted iu the establishment of State Institutions equipped and  endow.-d by public funds*, controlled by Parliament only in regard to the  amount oj funds made available for its yearly work.  ix is. proposed, therefore, that the Government of Canada should set  aside- ?;"00,00v to erect and equip a building at Ottawa to be known as "The  National Research Institute," and that it should mnke nn. annuul grant I'or  the carrying on t><  research in the public interest'.
