(Serial   Rights   Arranged   Through  F.   r>.. Goodchild,   Publishere,  Toronto)  ���������  (Continued)  CHAPTER XVIII.  A  Cryptic Messenger  From the Home,Restaurant, the sergeant went to the "stable where already  he had made his horses comfortable.  He secured a clothes poke from tlie  pack of his outfit. The Bonanza  Hotel proved advantageously informal  in that he was asked "two dollars a  night in advance." instead of being  confronted with a register for his  name and address. A key, attached  to a tin disk too large for any normal  pocket, was tossed to him by the  grouchy boniface, who informed him  he would find No. .12 at the head of  the stairs.  Opening a canvas "door supported on  a paid of leather hinges, Seymour entered a tiny room lighted by a single  window. It was furnished -to the  minimum with a blanketed cot,, a chair  and a table of the roughest construction. v  As he  sat on the edge  of the  cot,  he recalled the crowded events of the  life that had been    his    in    the    few  months    since    the    strangulation    ot  Oliver   O'Malley.       Up   at   Armistice  post, by now, the first mail must .have  arrived.       Constable   L.a   Marr  would  know that a "court"    was    about    to  start   from O.ttawa  to give  Olespe ot  the Lady Franklin band a trial for his  life.     He'd know, too, that Avic would  not be tried just then because the case  against    him    would    be    incomplete  without the testimony of Harry Karmack, the  fugitive    factor    who    undoubtedly had robbed the Arctic Trading  Company.      And when would  he  find Karmack-T-when and where? And  Moira  O'Malley. when  would  she arrive    in    Gold    to    join her bereaved  rather until that capture time?  The events of the day, however,  were too .stressing for his practical  mind to long concern itself with anything but the matter immediately at  hand.  "Richer than gold!" The test words  of the widow kept recurring to his  thoughts. What could this presumptuous crook of the wilds have had in  mind? The sergeant could think, of  course, of commodities that were more  precious than the yeliow metal, but of  none that were indigenous to that upper corner of British Columbia.  So he puzzled over the remark until  he concluded that Bart must have used  a figure of speech. He would await  the -widow's interpretation.  acquitted herself of culpability. The  weary lines In the face that must have  been beautiful not so long ago, the  haunted look in her dark eyes, even  her superb first effort at denial had  won the Mounlie's--'sympathy.  A knock en the.canvas door of his  room interrupted bis study of: the local  situation. 7 Arising, he unhooked the  latch, whereupon <he improvised door  swung inward of its own* weight and  the accord of its"makeshift"hisges.  Disclosed in the frame, filling it perpendicularly but sadlylacking in, horizontal proportions, stood a gaunt,  miner-Clad figure, distinguished ^>y a  pair of deep-set eyes which burned  like living coals and a shock of white  hair which waved its freedom when  his slouch hat was removed.  "Will you pardon me,  stranger;  no  intrusion meant"    The voics -was-.sd.ft'  and a smile Of utmost benignity came  ' into play.      "In. the- midst of life, we  : are in death."  1     "The  missionary���������Moira   O'Malley's  f'father and the uncle of the morning's  colorful trailmate!" was Seymour's instant thought; but he gave no sign of  the presumed recognition. *  "Safe enough statement'an this camp  to-day," he said to his visitor.  "I'm the sky-pilot of these diggings," the other announced in a pulpit voice that rumbled through the  hall.  "Won't you come in, sir?"  The missionary declined .with a  shake of his head. . "1 -must hasten  on my weekly rounds, distributing lessons from the Word. Won't you accept one of these and"-promise ine to  read it?" He held out a small tract  taken from a. handful which he carried.  The sergeant glanced at the title:  "What Shall It Profit a. Man������������������" He  smiled tolerantly, thinking -vylmt a  queer yet lovable character his future  life's companion had for-a parent. ������__  "It is not meet that -we should be  seen in conference," O'Malley's voice  had been lowerea to a whisper;   then  aflFUblSC  Skin disease threatens us every day. ���������  Invisible germs of blood-poison, eczema,.-  etc, sye waiting .to infect the least ent  or sore place.

Why not try itinowyouraeli? 0  W  n.   u.    ir.io  suddenly it boomed so that all beneath  the roof might hear: "I trust you will  read that tract, brother���������read and  profit thereby." And with that, he  stalked down the hall as though in  search of other needy souls.  Seymour watched him. On getting  no answer from the next door, the  gaunt frame stooped to slip a . tract  under it. At another a woman answered his knock and a "sister" .was  informed that in the midst of life she  was^n death.  Back in his room, Seymour pondered the single whispered sentence with  which the sky-pilot varied what evidently were his wonted words when  distributing tracts - Had Moira -vvrit-  ten that he had started for Gold and  that he knew more than anyone in the  world about the family's Arctic tragedy?  But that was impossible, for he had  been able to spend but a moment with  the girl when orders came to liim. at  Moritreai to report at once to the assistant commissioner in command of_  "E" Division at "Vancouver. Seymouf  himself had. not .known then that he  would eventually arrive in plain  clothes at her father's mission station.  What, then, could the whisper mean  unless there was a message���������temporal  rather than spiritual���������for him hidden  somewhere in the pamphlet? .  But when he shoo.*: its leaves, no  enclosure dropped out. He examined  the margins without raising a sign.  The inside back cover was blank but  nothing had been written thereon. He  remembered that the missionary had  picked the tract seemingly at random  from a pack of several dozen and he  was discouraged. "  . Still, the whisper persisted. "It is  not meet that we be seen in conference'*���������*he recalled every significant  word of it. Surely such words had  not been spoken at random. Drawing the chair to the window, he sat  down and began a more intensive  study of the printed sheet. Soon, an  ink dot. heneath a letter rewarded him;  then others. Presently he picked out:  a sequence of dotted letters spelling  "P-a-r-d-o-n."  The process reminded him of reading sun-heliograph or taking a hi inker  message at night. Undoubtedly the  communication was of importance that  th-* girl should have gone to such  trouble to assure secrecy. The uncle,  too. must have shaved the secret oi  lin could no* have been trusted to pick  out. the message-dotted tract. From  Ills cloilies-poke.', Ihe sergeant took  out a writing pad and with his pencil  khi. ihe indicated letters into words,  with this final  result.:  Pardon my vamose and cut "Both  for good oui* cause Bart said you coming to help Now must, carry on alone  Hr. careful Keep silent Come our cabin  lute toni-i-lit.

It would mean getting in  touch with Moira quicker than he  couldTJiope to do if he continued, his  incognito role in the camp.  * Seymour turned his attention for  some lime, then, to an intensive study  of* the blue print map of the district  which he had purchased at the surveyor's office on riding into Gold that  morning.' His hope was to find a way  toward the creeks after nightfall without'asking', questions.  His morning course to the point  where he had overtaken the "boyish-  looking rider was easily traced, and  thence into town. Working back, he  found the trail over which Ruth Duperow had come an'd followed that to  the mouth of Glacier Creek. Evidently the girl, for some reason, Kad taken  a roundabout course that morning, for  he found that % more direct trail 'to  town followed the Cheena. His acquaintance with the Indian tongue  was sufficient to spare him the map-  maker's mistake of adding the word  river to a name that reallv included  it in the "na" siuffix.  From such detail as was drawn into  tlie    map,    he   -judged    that    Glacier  was not much-of a creek.      It appeared to. start in a ntst of glaciers and to  flow thorugh a canon as from the neck  of a bottle.     Between the Cheena and  the cs^non was drawn a square with a  legend,  "Indian   Mission."       That  no  mining claims were marked ofE on this  creek,  although  those   surrounding -it  were well staked, seemed remarkable;  but the stranger did not try'to guess  t,ij.e answer.  For no othei reason than that the  name had lodged in his mind, Seymour sought out Hoodoo Creek on  the map and found the claim accredited to Cato���������Thirteen Above. If the  long-armed ox-man cited it in advancing his hopes with the widow, Seymour hoped that the number would  exert its supposedly baleful Influence.  From the blue-print, he turned to  writing a report to his chief in Vancouver to whom word of the murder  of his "Staff-Sergeant Russell Seymour" had undou"D"fcedly been sent  without delay. He tok a grim sort  of ienjoyment in an opening after Mark  Twain:  "I have the honor Lo slate iny safe  arrival in Gold, B. C.

Carried Down During Last Ice Age Is  Scientific Belief  Plymouth Rock, so we learn from  scientific investigation, is itself an, immigrant. It Wa3 brought down from  Canada during the last ice age on the  bosom of a. glacier -and when'-the glac"-  ier melted, was deposited conveniently  for the subsequent use of the Pilgrims.  It is a boulder of "biotite granite with  altered plagioclase feldspar," if that  interests you. At the same scientific  gathering where-the history of Plymouth Rock was' sketched.

As one of the unfortunates who*  live on the lower Eriekson road I  that the road situation is,  "quite familiar," but  not so "reasonably satisfactory" as  you imagina It is true we hava  hauled our apples without great  loss, ss you have remarked, but it  is, perhaps, more a casiplJroeni t*?  the teamsters than to the roads  that such has been done.

Apparently,* Mr. - Editor, you  were thinking only cf the quality  we produce, and not the quantity.

A. B. SnuBrnsniit. CJl,,       \  oi Maxcricl*. Mitchell t& Compazsy '  Jtaacr C. Baktwb, CA.,  of Macintoth, Cole A Robertsa|k  At the annual   meeting   of  share-  Holders of th-> Imperial Bank  of Can  ada held in Toronto   im   Wednesday,  Novetnbei    26th,    the    50th    annual  statement of the bank was presented.  It is generally admitted that business  conditions in th*. last   twelve! months  ���������' have been seriuui-1^" depressed . and the  e_cellentBi^temeni'whicht^e; direct^  urs presented does gt*eut: credit to the  sssanng-snient.    Isa addition,  it clearly  demonstrates that ������ moderate   sisied  b������nk can  with   profit  give   adequate  banking facilities to Canadian business.  A comparison of   the  figures   with  those of a ye_r ago'W.31 reveal several  interesting particulars.    Deposits have  been well  maintained and now stand  at  over   $88,000,000,   of   which   over  ������70,009.000* are  interest   bearing.   It  has been the policy, of   the   Imperial  Bank for many years past to maintain  a considerable portion of its funds in  highly liquid tssets  and   the   present!  Btutemeot Is well in accord with this I  policy.   Cash on   hand   and   kindred  assets are $27,000,000 or   over   27%  of  the bank's   liabilities   to   the   public,  while quickly realisable assets stand at  ������50.000,000 or 60% of public liabilities.  It is interesting   to   note   the   large  Bum   represented   by  Dominion  and  Provincial     government     securities,  [ which now   stand   ut  f 13.4H7.00G,   or  $1,400,000 over the figures reported a  year ago.  The figures of Profit and Loss statement are very satisfactory. The  earnings for the year, after deducting  charges of management and other  itt-ms including full provision for had  and doubtful. debts. stand at  $1,107,880.99, which haa allowed the  directors ten pay quarterly dividends at  the rate of 12% pe*r rinnum, ana in  addition a bonus of 1%, to make the  usual contributions Guarantee and  Pension funds and carry forward to  next year an amount of $5,000 in excess  of-u year ago, $1,080,223.19.  Current nans always reflect- business  conditions and it is therefore not  surprising to note that under this  heading there has been a reduction of  30,000,000. Non-current loans, which  a year ago stood at $660,000, have been  reduced to $323,000,  Bank premises account Is slightly up  over tho figures of a year ago, the  other items In   tho  assets  remaining  York's Work Pleases  lept Oriigi Loop. lo. 20S5  Meets THIRD THUJ-tlSDAY of  each month at Mercantile  Us!!,    ^"ssitlnsr bs_tisren cos?dl-  ahy- invitaHa.  fcBR-C OLSON.

Roasted asa-d packed same  day in  air  C-l  cans  Xlie War To End War  &  How often during the faterul years 1914 to 1&1S, -while the colossal struggle between Germany and the Allies was in progress was heard the expression  that this -was  a war to end war.      This idea was embodied*in the appe���������als  made by all Allied Governments to their people to loyally and even cheerfully  bear the heavy burdens being imposed upon them and to endure the terrible  sacrifices they were called upon to make.      Thousands of husbands and fathers"  fought and suffered and died declaring it was worth while if by such "sacrifice  the world of mankind was'to be forever freed from the horrors of war. "Never  again" was the watchword of these heroic souls as, dying, they felt assured  their descendants would never be called upon to face what- thej* had endured.  But although the bugles sounded "Cease fire" along the great battle line  on November 11.   1918, the war to-end war was not then, concluded.      It is  ,,-not yet concluded.      Wars are eveu now in progress in different parts of the  world, but more significant than these local struggles is the fact that, even  witli the elimination of Russia, the European Allies in the Great World War  have a larger number of men under arms today than Germany, Austria-Hun-  gary, Turkey and Bulgaria had when the Great "War began in 1914.  Today the peace strength of France, Italy, Britain, Poland, Rumania,  Belgium, Czecho-Slovakia and Yugoslavia is 1,937,000 men, while in 1914 the  peace strength of Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and Turkey was 1,504,-  999, or nearly half a million less.  The financial burden imposed on these war impoverished countries in maintaining nearly two million men in military idleness is an appalling one. Important advances have been made in reduction in naval .armaments, and it is  probable that more will follow, bur as yet the even greater menace to the  peace of the world constituted by huge standing armies exists.  The whole race of mankind must rejoice, therefore, that the League of  Nations is leaving no stone unturned to bring about, first, a binding agreement among all nations calculated .to mklce war almost impossible of outbreak  and banish it from among the calculations which today every European country has to consider, and, secondly, to bring about an early and drastic reduction in all standing armies* and armanafents along lines which are proving  effective in the reduction of navies-and naval expenditures.  Some people stijl scoff. at the League of Nations. They criticize and  condemn it because it has not accomplished more. Yet when its achievements in the six years which have elapsed since tlie Covenant was dratted  and signed are studied, the amazing thing is not what it has failed to do in  that short space of time, but that it has accomplished so much, and has secured such a large measure of confidence among the nations of the world. Tlie  influence of the League of Nations is the most powerful factor in international  affairs today.  Beneficial and effective in so many ways as the work of the League has  proven to be, its recent achievement in drafting a protocol of peace which-received the unanimous approval, of the representatives or every nation now a  member of the League, and the equally unanimous approval given by such  representatives to the plan for a great world conference on disarmament, arid  their united demand upon all,Governments to proceed with the least possible  delay in giving individual Parliamentary approval to the peace protocol, is  easily the most important and far-reaching effort of the League and one that  holds  promise of heralding a new era in world history.  The effect of the concord displayed at Geneva is seen in the speeches  delivered by two Generals who were active participants in the Great War,  one a Gorman, the other a Frenchman. General "Veriaux (French) and General Von Schoemaich (German) united in stating to lhe World Peace Congress at Berlin that "only complete general disarmament can save the world."  General Velraux declared that "'little armies are as 'dangerous as big ones,"  and General Von Schoemaich said that most generals of the old regime-knew  that their theories were wrong, but had not the courage to confess it.' He  promised to support the movement looking to the abandonment of military  ���������servic'i-'.  Th'- war io end war is, ������herei'ore, moving forward to victory, This really  glofiiui-s war i-* not yet won. To achieve complete victory calls for the enlistment of every right-thinking man and woman to bring the last ounce of  pivssuri* to b'-ar on Government in each and every country in order that  sunns- national support for ihe League of Nations plan for universal disarmament wilt be "���������>-������������������.*������������������!coming.  e For Cancer Cure  Toronto       May *    Achieve'     "Another  Triumph  In a Curative Treatment**.
