Murrell and F. Putnam waited  oh Col. Lister and discussed redistribution with him. They made it quite clear  that in case Creston riding is done away  with the Creston Volley section very  much objects to being grouped with Nelson. Col. Lister assured the delegation  that he would keep them posted as to  what was likely to happen so that steps  can be taken to make the best of a bad  job in case the Creston constituency goes  into the discard.  Crest en board of trade met in February session on Tuesday night last with  the new president, K. J. Forbes, in the  chair and a fine turnout of members who  transacted business in considerable  variety, possibly the most notable  features being the resolutions that were  adopted in connectidn with redistribution and a beer parlor.  Another important feature was the  election of 16 new members, as follows:  H. S. McCreath, Vic. Mawson, Gib.  Sinclair, W. JL. Belt, Chas. Murrell, A. L.  Palmer, E. Wine combe, S. Hendren, A.  E. French, I*. W. McFarland, Matt-  York, Jas. Cherrington .- J. 6. Farris,  Guy Constable and W. Anderson,  manager of the new Cranna jewlery  store. With these added to the previ us  roll the board membership is now the  largest in-almost a dozen years.  _ On motion it was decided to pay -he  membership for 19B2 in the Associated  Boards of Trade of Eastern B.C. at $10,  and themesttng agreed to the appointment of five standing committees for the  year as follows:  Municipal and Hospital���������W.

Letters'are to be sent the minister of  finance and the local member protesting  against any reductions in grants paid to  municipalities from liquor profits, motor  license and pari mutuel revenues. The  cabinet at Victoria and the local mem er  will also be advised that Creston objects  to any plan of redistribution thvt will  eliminate the Creston riding.  A resolution was adopted affirmiug  that the board is in favor of a beer parlor  license being granted in Creston to auy-  one operating a hotel*in "a proper and  fitting manner." In the discussion of  this matter it waa definitely stated thnt  no beer license could be granted until.  the building in which it.was proposed to  operate was constructed.

Canyon residents were out one  hundred strong to rhe first of this  season's musical programme put  on by the Canyon Study  Orchestra Friday evening at the  Community hall.-  F. Knott, as chairman, opened  up the evening's entertainment  at 8 p.m.���������on time. This was  followed by the orchestra's  rendering of the introdnctory  number, "American Youth."  The manner in which������this opening  march was rendered left the  audience with a feeling of hope  that there, would be more like  this to follow. John Finlay of  Camp Lister, cornet, is a new  addition to the orchestra and his  j solos, "I Hear You Calling Me"  and "The Rosary," were received  with rounds of applause and calls  for "encore. The programme,  while fairly lengthy, was handled  with dispatch and put on in good  time. It is hoped that this precedent will be followed on future  occasions. r  A.

Basse of Creston was here on  Sunday afternoon for Lutheran Church  ���������service.  Friday was observed as valentine day  at the school and the number of these  that were exchanged was the largest in  the history of the school.  Co!.   Fred   Lister left on Friday   for  Victoria to attend  the   session   of   the  legislature, which opened on Wednesday.  He is also chairman of the Tory caucus  I which went into session on Monday.  The original settlers of this area are  having a meeting at the schoolhouse  on Friday evening at which matters of  importance to the district will be discuss, d, more especially water and land  prices. .  E Brudler had a small gang qf  German settlers at work dismantling  ihe old south bridge on tlie Canyon  highway, which he has purchased from  the public works department.  Lister farmers have now disposed of  tho last of the 1981 hay crop. It is  satisfactory to note that the price advanced from $17 to $20 a ton on some of  the latter sales.  The new arrangements for handling  tho Community Society card parties  appears to be just what was wanted as [  the attendance at Saturday night's  bridge was up to soven tables, with the  high score prizes soins: to Mice Cartls  nnd Frank Dodgscn. Other features  were the valentine box and tho leap year  proposaloa, which combined to make the  evening one of the most enjoyable  for many months past.  audience   had  a few more Septs  sprinkled among it.      ���������������������������������������������������.-..-��������� =���������������������������_.  The programme offered on Friday night might be summed lip  as being somewhat "heavy" but  for light spots provided by Tom  Mawson on the voilin, and two  very refreshing piano duets played by Mrs. Kolthammer and Miss  Frances Knott. As is usual 6n  these occasions, Tom Mawson  was boisterously encored and  suitably responded to the  applause accorded his numbers  by giving another of the old  favorites.

This is the second year  that  onductor Stephens has put on a  series  of  these   concerts   which  have     been ' well _ received " by  residents;   although   the attendance at the opening of the  1932  series was not quite as   large as  I that in 1931.    It, however, wm  not in any way indicative that  j these musical efforts are not fully  j appreciated by Canyon folic, THE   KEVIEW.   CRESTOST.   B.   <&  Truck Load Of Petitions  A.re   lA^e Over-Govcrne  a?  premier Bracken, of Manitoba, has officially advanced the suggestion  that the three prairie provinces of Canada be united as one province,  governed by one Legislature. He makes the suggestion solely in the interests of economy in administration, claiming that several millions of  dollars could thereby be saved to the taxpayers. His suggestion is approved  and supported by Hon, W. F. A. Turgeon, for many years attorney-general  of Saskaici_ewa__ and new a justice cf the Court of Appeal of the same  province. Premier Brownlee, of Alberta, has expressed doubt as to the  feasibility of the proposal, while Premier Anderson, of Saskatchewan, says  It ������s deserving of consideration but, in any event, could only be adopted  following an affirmative referendum vote of the people of the three provinces  and new legislation by the Dominion and  Imperial Parliaments.  Premier Bracken, Mr. Justice Turgeon, and others who have given  support to the proposal, frankly admit there are many and great difficulties  to be overcome in bringing it about, but they do not regard these as insurmountable. To mention some of these, not necessarily in the order of their  importance, but as indicating tlie problems to he solved and difficulties to be  overcome:���������  Today there are three capital cities, Winnipeg, Regina and Edmonton,  with, three magnificent and costly parliament buildings, thi.ee distinct civil  services, three large and expensive universities, three sets of district, intermediate and higher courts of law, three codes of law. except the Criminal  Code which Is uniform: as a Dominion enactment. In addition, Saskatchewan  and Alberta have separate as well as public schools, while Manitoba has no  separate school system.  United as one province there would, of course, be only one capital city  and one government representative of the people  in all the present three  prQvf3H.es.     No doubt one of the present capital cities would be selected as  the capital of the united province.    The other two would object, and object  strenuously, but, after all, such objections of a local and more or less selfish  nature would have to foe over-ridden in. the larger interests of all concerned.  Inasmuch as the writer is not presenting an argument solely in favor of  union, it Is right to say there are other, and more serious, objections. It is  argued that the individual costs imposed on people having business with the  Government would be greatLy increased.      For example, if Winnipeg was  selected as the capita,, people and deputations f com Alberta would be put to  heavy expense  of time -and money  in journeying   to  Winnipeg,  while if  Edmonton was the chosen site. Manitoba people would be the sufferers. To  offset this, branch offices of the central government might be maintained in  each present province, but,, if so, the savings to be effected by union would  tos greatly reduced.   In like manner, the expense entailed an all matters of  government inspection services   would    be   ^increased   where   government  officials were required! to make long journeys over the entire prairie country  instead of within the smaller areas of existing provinces.  And wfest is true ___ regard to government itself would be equally true  if only one university was maintained, and students had to travel much  longer distances. This, however, might be partly overcome by maintaining  all three but restricting the number of courses at each, instead of all attempting to cover the whole field. For example, one might specialize in law,  another in medicine, another in science, etc., instead of ail three duplicating  these subjects, with a continual demand for more buildings, more professors,  more everything.  In the matter of law administration, district courts would still be  essential, .although possibly the districts could be somewhat enlarged as is  now the tendency in the existing provinces. But one high court of appeal  could easily serve a united province. It would be a supreme court for the  West, and possibly the decisions of such a court would be more readily  accepted as final, thus reducing the number of appeals to the Supreme  Court at Ottawa and the Privy Council in London.  "Unquestionably, too, the number of civil servants could be substantially  reduced, and a large saving thereby efi.i-cl.ed. In the matter of such institutions as Schools for the Blind, the Deaf, correction homes for delinquent  boys and girls, homes for the aged, etc., there is, of course, no necessity for  one of each in each of the present three provinces. This is already recognized, but sometimes there is difficulty in getting united action in regard to  thorn.  Where the conditions prevailing and the interests of the people are so  similar as throughout the prairies, one code of laws would eliminate imich  confusion and simplify administration immensely.  Finally, there is the argument that one Legislature coxild just as  efficiently, and at much less cost, govern the whole country instead of maintaining three such bodies. In the opinion of many people this reduction  In. legislative representatives and expense would be'the outstanding saving.  The writer does not quite agree. There are at present upwards of 175 members of legislature in tho three provinces, and possibly half that number  would suffice, but all that would be saved would be sessional indemnities and  tlie actual costs of two Legislatures while in session, but the ono Legislature  would have to remain In session for n much longer period, thus offsetting  gome of these savings. On the other hand, constituencies would havo to be  just twice as large, the effect of which would be two-fold,���������either ability to  etand for election would be restricted to men of considerable means who  could bear the expense, or sessional indemnities would have to be so increased as to enable the average man and woman to continue to bo  candidates.  Admittedly, only some high spots have boon touched upon in consideration of this big question; it cannot bo otherwise In a short article. In a  fourth, and concluding article in this series, some of tho broad aspects of tho  wholo subject of duplications and costs of governmental services will bo  dlscuBEied.  55BB_BB"B9 IrQJEi-SS SSI iilBS ���������f$������llff  Serves In Bad Condition  Mr, Fred J.

On the boxes and bundles of signatures sat 15 women each carrying  a blue and white banner "for peace"  in various languages.

"The Oriental library was at first  attached to the: Commercial Press/:  he said, "and was named the Han  Fen Ldu Library, famous for its collection of old and rare editions. Then  years ago, the company/with the help  of the local government, provided a  special fund and erected a large 'modern library building of six storeys to  house these books.  "According to last year's report, it  had on Its shelves 360,000 volumes in  Chinese, and over 100,000 In ether  languages. It contained 700 works  of the early Sung editions dating  back to the 10th. century and about'  10,000 volumes of unpublished manuscripts."  "The Commercial Press," Dr, J������iang  went on, "is a purely Chinese busi- j  ness concern and is known as the |  largesfpublishing house in the world-  It employs 15,000 men and women  and its output amounts to- many millions of volumes a'year."

CANADIAN SULECTE������  J  Ottawa, Ont.���������^CJreatipn of a - scientific laboratory where the "economic  system might be- dissected in van effort'to remove the m&llgnant. growth,  depression, was advocated - in the  House of Commons by Alf red Speak-  man, U.F.A., Red Deer. He would establish a "national .council of social  and economic research," patterned  after the existing council on industrial and scientific problems.  Tbe government, said Hon.* H. H.  Stevens, was willing to give serious  study to the suggestion of an economic council. It was prepared even  to pass the Speakman resolution if it  wore made contingent on the ratifica.  tion of the government.  The machinery already existed for  a scientific study of social and economic problems, said Rt. Hon. Mackenzie King, Liberal Leader. The National Council of Scientific Research  might be enlarged and such questions  as unemployment, unemployment Insurance and maldistribution of commodities and wealth, referred to it for  consideration.  Organized science had solved such  industrial problems as production,  said Mr. Speakman. The Dominion,  Jn furthering that work, had created  the National Council of Scientific Research. He asked why Canada  should.not establish a similar council  to grapple with social and economic  problems. A ready field existed-with  such unsolved problems as unemployment, general" distribution and low  commodity values. Systematized research might find a- key to the riddle  of depression.;  The resolution, explained Mr.  Speakman ,was identical with the  one moved by him last year. The  value of work performed by the National Council. of Scie_itl3e Researcb  was well known. Another body  should be created which would be  supported by the state and which  would deal with the problems indicated,   r. -'-'.���������. >  It was a curious, significant and yet  sinister fact, said Mr. Speakman, that  people who had held property worth  thousands of dollars are today receiving relief. The world today demanded  leadership back to normal conditions  or to what some n_.ight_.caii a.return  to better society. The two steps which  had been taken so far in the present  depression were CD relief, which was  necessary and essential, but would increase the burden. (2) The 10 per  cent, cut, which reduced the purchasing power of civil servants. The conditions under which the people of the  world were suffering were the consequence of human error and rectification must be susceptible of human  control.  W. T. Lucas, U.PiA., Camrose, declared/that before any real progress  or prosperity could be achieved many  of the old ideas wouid have to be  scrapped. The big problem today  was the proper distribution of wealth  among thc people who created It.  Increased Demand For Export Grain  Has Made Market Firmer  Ottawa, Ont.���������Increased export demand for Canad'an wheat during the  jaext two months, with resultant higher prices, appears inevitable.  In a statement issued recently by  Hon. H. H. Stevens, Minister of Trade  ahd Commerce, favorable factors in  the wheat situation are summarized,  and It is declared a large continental  demand is even now making itself  felt.  Broomhall, noted Liverpool authority, who has taken the pessimistic  view until recently, now has Indicated  a growing appreciation of the- constructive factors in the wheat situation.  He says:  "Larger buying of foreign wheat  by Italy and Prance, as previously  predicted, has already a firming influence upon world's markets and we  arc of the opinion that continued  large buying will prevail during the  coming six months, including a better  demand from Germany which -would  be essential to provide the necessary  food for the people. The United  Kingdom may buy slightly less actively, but the consumption of imported wheat is certainly abnormally  large just now. The strength in  America and the lack of Russian offerings must in time make for a  much better selling market for other  exporters."  , .  Developments point to a shortage  of good milling wheat in Europe at  the present time, and that there are  no large supplies of wheat in normally exporting European countries.  Forecast of government legislation  to bolster values on the Buenos Aires  futures market, which may encourage the holding of wheat in the Argentine, appears as a favorable factor here. If the Argentine action is  too drastic, it would mean the switching of trade to Winnipeg where a free  hedging market exists.  To Amend Juvenile Act  W. T.

All the members  Bill Designed  To  Meet  Representations I&eceived From Seven  Provinces  Ottawa, Ont.���������A" bill'to amend the  Juvenile Delinquents' Act, in line with  representations received from the  Province of Manitoba, endprsed by six  othet provinces, was- given first reading in the House of Commons.  Hon. Hugh Guthrie, Minister of  Justice, explained that the amendment arose from the fact that the  act as it now stands provides that  it is an offence for anyone to contribute, promote, or procure a child  to become a delinquent. It had  been held by magistrates in certain  courts, however, that while a man  might do all in his power to procure  a youth to become a delinquent, if  that youth did not actually become a  delinquent, the man was not punishable.  It was proposed to insert a clause  providing that it shall not be a valid  1 defence to a prosecution that, hot-  withstanding the conduct of the accused, the child did not in fact become a delinquent.  The amendment, Mr. Guthrie said,  was endorsed by nearly all the Chil-  dretfs  Aid   Socleitles.

Mayor Webb was asked what the  sentiment on the prairies was towards the proposal of Premier Jrohn  Bracken, of Manitoba, for a united  government of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.  "If you want to know my opinion," said Mayor Webb,-"I would tell  Premier Bracken to try to solve the  problems of Manitoba before he tries  to take on the problems of the other  provinces. He's got plenty of work  to do there."

TARIFF BM IS  INTRODUCED TN  BRITISH COMIOF-S  London, England.���������^The "trade bm"  to establish a general 10 per cent.  tariff on imports to Great Britain,  was ia&foduced in the House of Commons in "dummy" form, and given its  flrst reading, after the governm _nt  had disposed of two Labor amendments -which would have limited operation of duties to one year and placed  all foodstuffs on the free list.  .The bill was then introduced by  Rt. Hon. Neville Chamberlain and  given first reading. Exact con-teat;,  were still unknown.  It was not known what products  would be exempt from the effects of  the bill, beyond that they would-include wheat in grain, meat including  bacon, raw wool and cotton, tea and  coffee.  In the1 House of ' Lords Viscoiant  Snowden, of Ickorasfaaw, made his  first speech as a peer, telling why tie  thought a general 10 per cent, tariff  would be "disastrous to the economic  and industrial life and to the prosperity of the country."  Viscount Snowden told the lords  why he remained a member of the  cabinet as Lord Privy Seal, despite  his disagreement with the protectionist measures put forward by the government.  Referring- scornfully to assertions  that such an arrangement violated all  precedent, he said that "if anankind  always had remained the slave of precedent we would still be living in  caves eating shellfish."

Dear Sir:  At the recent Convention the matter  of Finances was thoroughly discussed  and two methods of securing funds  urgently needed to enable the Association to carry on were suggested.  One waa a special emergen cy fund of  $500.00 to meet pressing liabilities. The  other that of having the Directors  collect by the fiirpt of February half the  fees on the new rate of $2.00 per  member, the other half to be collected in  November.  The first Twa? conditional upon the  whole amount b^ing raised and may  take longer' than ^e can wait at the  present time The other should be done  without delay.  May we,, in. vL;w of the urgency of the  case, ask Vou to undertake this right  away as our case is becoming more  embarrassing and indeed desperate each  day.  You will agree that after the splendid  advance made at the convention and  the great opportunities opening before us  as a consequence, it will be too bad if  the Finance Committee should have to  recommend to the* Executive a temporary cessation of secretarial duties owing  io having no funds wherewith to pay the  salary. Nevertheless such is the  situation. May we urge upon you  therefore to rally to tho cause in an  extraordinary effort to enable us to  ���������carry on.  Yours truly.  FRED COX,  Chairman.

Distribution  Saskatchewan Editor Publishes Interesting- Booklet On  Economics .  C. C. Stuart, editor of the Dundurn  Enterprise, has recently published an  interesting booklet of fifty pages, in  which he sets forth a thought provoking discussion of the present economic conditions under the title "Money  and Distribution."  Nationalization of the banking system and abolition of the gold standard  are advanced by the writer as possible methods of restoring credit, and  stablizing prices. Gold, he declares,  is not a reasonable basis for currency,  since it is not a useful commodity,  and there is no real demand for it.  Money is valued only for the goods  which it may purchase, and therefore  it should be issued on a basis of the  national wealth.  Mr. Stuart advocates a national  clearing house, in which records are  kept of the wealth of the nation in  terms of the goods it produces, and in  which there are also records of the  credit due each individual. On this  basis, tokens could be issued, which  would be used by the people in Canada.  Gold or silver is not necessary in  international trade, he continues,  since "if international trading is carried on, the commodity prices must  rise and fall together in each country." He rgoes on to say in this connection that the relation between  wheat and the dollar will vary in like  proportion as between gold and the  dollar.  The relation of such a standard of  currency to inflation, holding of property, and other phases of economic  life are discussed in a clear and logical manner, and the book is written  in a direct and interesting style.  Copies may be secured from Mr.  Stuart by forwarding fifty cents to  his office at Dundurn.

The sheep know the shepherd's  voice and come at his call. He leads  them out, going before them and they  follow, but from a stranger they will  flee, for they do not know his voice.  A flock of sheep is not driven in the  East, as in our country.  "Jesus' method is not that of compulsion, but that of attraction. He  does not drive; he draws."���������Francis  Greenwood Peabody.  Jesus As the Door, verses 6-10. ���������  The Pharisees who claim to be the  spiritual guides of the people, could  not see that Jesus was describing  them under the picture of thieves and  robbers, and the man formerly blind  could not grasp the comforting  thought that he was independent of  the Pharisees because they were false  shepherds who did not themselves  know the way into the fold, into the  Kingdom of God. The Pharisees  thought that by excommunicating the  man they had closed the door into  heaven for him. Jesus therefore explained the picture lie had drawn. "I  am the Door of the sheep," He announced, "the Door through whom  the sheep may enter the fold."  "One only Door leads up to God;  'Tis Christ His Son;  Faith is the key that swings it broad:  And every one  Who   takes   this   key may  upward  plod."���������Donald A. Fraser.  Jesus. As the Good Shepherd, verses  11-18.���������With the statement of the  purpose of His coming, Jesus changes  the figure of Himself as the Door to  that of Himself as the Good Shepherd.  Good here does not mean kind, but  genuine, true, as is shown by the contrast with the thief and the hireling,  verse 12. The good shepherd layeth  down his life for the sheep, while the  hireling flees when wolves come, leaving the sheep to their fate. "I am the,  Good Shepherd; and I know mine  own, and mine own know Me, even as  the Father knoweth Me, and I know  the Father"; in these beautiful words  Jesus declares the depth of the lovo  existing between Himself and His  followers.

S. Lamb, director of the  Department of Education at McGill  University, who has returned from  the twelfth annual convention of the  American Student Health Association,  held in New York City.  Alarm at the prevalence and spread  of the "white plague" among university students was revealed In a paper  read by Dr, J. A. Myers of tho University of Minnesota. Tho convention  decided unanimously to embark on a  five-year period of study, during  which time a relentless war la to be  waged against tuberculosis. Flguroa  and statistics also will bo obtained.  Comparatively little information Is  available oa_ tho extent of tho ravages of this disease among' university  students, it was stated, and Dr, Lamb  was assigned to direct tho study  throughout Canada.  Speaking on tho Importance of tho  campaign, Dr. Lamb called tho iwen-  ace of tuberculosis to university student., a "vory serious one," Due possibly, as some specialists, boHovo to  the strain of studios, ttibarculoalt. la  Inclined to develop much moro rapidly in fltwl0-_tB than might otherwise  be  tho  case,  ha  said,  France Is Encouraging Ex-Prisoners  To Open Up New Colony  Administrative reSorms and a new  spirit of colonization, are rapidly  changing the atmosphere of Devil's  island, the world's most famous prison colony.  Officials of the Colonial Office at  Paris created the Hew Inlni territory  in French Guiana. Hard-bitten convicts who have served out their servitude under a tnopic sun are looking  southward to a new El Dorado, said  to be rich, in mineral and agricultural  wealth.  No new colonists are to be sent  there but ex-prisoners are being encouraged to settle. Formerly the  only thing for a liberated man to  do was to try to find work in St.  Louis, Macouria or some one of the  other coast towns.  About thirty years ago an attempt  was made to transport Indo-Chinese  colonists to the district, but it was  a failure. Instead of clearing and  farming the rich jungle land they  became town .merchants and servants  for the households of the French administrative officers.  Arabs, Negroes and some native Indians make up the greater part of the  free population, ^hese men have refused to open, up the country. Some-  Indo-Chinese fishermen, the" last of a  band of pirates sent here years ago,  cast their nets i_i the ooasta.1 waters.  Almost all sentences to the prisons  carry with them exile for a number  of years after the completion of the  term. Thus men who have dona  twenty years penal servitude must remain another . 3n or fifteen years.  These men France expects to use aa  colonists.

CHAPTER XD_L���������Continued  With an effort of -will Jean tried  -to banish the recollection of Sir  Adrian from her thoughts. The picture of his thin, leaden-hued face,  with its cruel mouth and furtive, suspicious eyes, -was out of harmony with  this soft day of spring-. She wished  she had not let the thought of him  intrude upon her pleasant reverie at  ... all. Hist sinister figure seemed to cast  a shadow over the sunlit river, a  shadow which grew bigger and bigger, "blurring the green of the trees  and the sky's faint blue, and even  silencing the comfortable little chirrups of the birds, busy with _ their i  spring housekeeping.     At least, Jean  - couldn't hear them any longer, and  she took .no notice even when one  enterprising young cock-bird hopped  near enough to filch a feather that  was sticking out invitingly from the  .. corner of    the   cushion   behind   her  : head.

Someone   was    calling ��������� shouting  lustily, in fact,  and    collecting    her  . sleep-bemused faculties, she realised  that instead of being securely moored  against the bank her boat was rocking gently in mid-stream, ahd that  the occupant of another boat, coming  from the- opposite direction, was doing his indignant best to attract her  attention, since just at that point the  river  was  too   narrow  for  them  to  : pass one another unless each pulled  well in towards thc bank.

'-'Full in a. bit please. We can't  pass here if you don't. ... Pull in J"  he yelled rather more irately as Jean's  boat still remained in the middle of  the river, drifting plts.ci.dly towards  him.  She flung up tier hand.  "I can't t" she shouted back. "I've  lost nay sculls!"  "Lost your sculls?" The man's  tones sufficiently implied what he  thought of the proceeding.  A couple of strokes, and, gripping  the gunwale of her boat as he drew  level, he steadied it to a standstill  alongside his own.  Jean's eyes travelled swiftly from  the squarish   muscular-looking   hand  that gripped  the  boat's  side  to the  face of its owner. He- was decidedly  an ugly man as far as features were  concerned, with a dogged-looking chin  and a conquering beak of a nose that  jutted out arrogantly from his hatchet face.    The sun glinted on. a crop  of     reddish-brown    hair,     springing  crisply from the scalp iss a way that.  suggested immense vitality; Jean had  an idea that it would give out tiny  crackling sounds if it were brushed  hard. His eyebrows, frowning in defence against  the  sun,  were  of . the  same hue as his hair and very thick;  in later life they w������ould probably develop   into   the  bristling-,   pent-house  variety.       The   eyes  themselves,   as  Jean described them on a later occasion, were "too red to be brown"; an  artist would have had to make  extensive use of burnt sienna pigment  in   portraying   them.   Altogether,   he  was not   a   particularly   attractive-  looking individual���������and just now the  red-br.owtt eyes were fixed on Jean.in  a rather uriconaprcMnlslTlg: g.ar������-  "M8w oa earth' did you lose your  oars ?" he demanded���������-as indignantly  ns though she had done it on purpose,  she-commented inwardly.  Her lips twitched in the endeavour  to suppress a smile.  "I haven't the least idea," she confessed. "I tied up under some trees  further up and���������and I suppose I must  have fallen asleep. But still that  doesn't explain bow I came to be  adrift like this."  "A woman's knot, I expect," he  vouchsafed rather scornfully. "A  woman never ties up properly. Probably you just looped the painter  round any old thing and trusted to  Providence that it would stay Hooped."  She gave vent to a Irow laugh.  "I believe you've described the process quite accurately," she admitted.  "But I've done the same thing before  without any evil consequences. There's  hardly any,current here, you know. I  don't believe"���������with conviction������������������"that  my loop could liave unlooped Itself.  And anyway"���������triumphantly ��������� "the  sculls couldn't have jusnped out of tho  boat without assistance."  The man smiled, revealing strong  white teeth. ���������     "   ,  "No, .1 suppose not. I fancy" ���������  tho smile broadening���������"some small  boy must have spotted you asleep in  the. boat and, finding the opportunity  too good to Ke resisted, removed your  tackle and set you adrift."  There was a sympathetic twinkle in  his eyes, and Jean, suddenly sensing  the "littlo boy1' in him. which lurks  In every grown-up man, flashed back;  "I believe that's .exactly what you  would havo done yourself In your  urchin days."  "I believe It is/' he aokhowleged,  laughing outright.    "Well,   tho only  thing to do now Ss for me'to tow you  back,   Whore do you want to go���������up  or down the river?"  ...

So now that we  know each other, will you come into  zny parlour?"���������smiling- "If I'm going to take you back, there seems no  reason -why we shouldn't accomplish  the journey together and tow your  boat behind."  He .held out his hand to steady her  as she stepped lightly from one boat  to the other, and soon they were glidings smoothly upstream, the empty  craft tailing along in their wake.  For a while Burke sculled in silence, and Jean leant back, idly watching the effortless, rhythmic swing of  his body as he bent to his oars. His  shirt was open at the throat, revealing the strong, broad-based neck, and  she noticed.in a detached fashion that,  small, ..fine hairs covered Ms "bared  arms with a golden down, even encroaching on to the backs of the  brown, muscular hands.  She found herself femininely conscious that the most dominant quality  about the man was his sheer virility.  Nor was it just a matter of appearances. It lay in something more  fundamental than merely externals.  She had known men of great physical  strength to be not infrequently gifted  With an almost feminine gentleness of  nature, yet she was sure this latter  element played but a small part in  the make-up of Geoffrey Burke.  The absolute  ease with which  h������  sent the boat shear_i.gr through th������  water seemed to her in some way  typical. It conveyed a sense of mastery that was unquestionable, even a  little overpowering. ������  She felt ^ceirtain that he was, above  and before all other things, primeval  male, -forceful and conquering, of the  type who in a different age would  have cheerfully bludgeoned his way  through any and every obstacle that  stood between him and the woman he  had chosen as his mate���������and, afterwards, if necessary, bludgeoned the  lady herself into submission.  "Here's where you tied up, then?"/  Burke's voice broke suddenly across  her thoughts, and she looked around,  recognizing the place where she had  moored h.er boat earlier in the afternoon. ,���������  "How did you divine 'that?" she  asked.  "It didn't require much divination!  There are your sculls"���������pointing���������  "stuck up against the trunk of a tree  ���������and looking as though; they might  topple over at any moment. I fancy"  ���������with a smile���������-"that my 'small boy*  theory was correct. I believe I could  even put a name to the particular  limb of Satan responsible," he went  on. "You moored your boat on the  Willow Ferry side of the stream, and  our lodge-keeper's kids are a troop of  young demons. They -want a thorough  good thrashing, and m see that they  get it before they are much older."  He pulled in to the shore and rescuing the sculls from their precarious  position, restored them to the empty  a ] boat.  "All the same." he added, as, a few  111,1,11 j  minutes later, he helped Jean out oa  to the little wooden landing place at  Staple.
