G  Death thi=* week has taken another of  the valley's highly respected and oldtime  residents in the passing of William H.  Watcher at his Creston home early  Tuesday evening, the end coming after  quite a prolonged illness, at the advanced age of 77 years.  Deceased was * a native of Thedford,  Ontario, near Sarnia, in which town he  served his appeecticesaip as blacksmith.  He was married in that town in 1883, to  Margaret Chester, and continued to reside there until 1904, when he came  direct to Creates* and associated himself  with his brother-in-law, the late Frank  Rose, in the well known, fruit ranching  firm of Rose & Watcher, and with  characteristic; eastern enterprise also  operated a blacksmith shop at the ranch  In connection with horticultural effort.  For some years after the ranch was sold  deceased continued to operate the shop,  although living in town, and up till about  three years ago actively followed hi3  trade in shops in town.  At his trade deceased was a  master  workman with which he happily combined industry and courtesy.   Of the same  high? order was his integrity and  loyalty  to his friends.   Whiis essentially a man  of the home he took a very active interest in   Masonry and Jin addition to being  the first   local   resident  to   be   made a  Mason in Creston lodge he also served in  all the lodge offices,  including that of  master, with distinction.   He was active  in Presbyterian Church work ever since  the denomination was established here,  serving as an elder for many years, while  in 1925 he was one of the representatives  from   the Kootenay presbytery  at the  memorable     meeting    of   the   General  Assembly following church union.  1    Although bis passing was not unex-  |tifiiactedi;:iipne7 the? less .genuine  is   the  sympath-^i^ctended Mrs. Watcher - by a  host of friends In the great loss   she has  sustained.

B.   C.  i  ��������� m  '-.  J  i  Zest to the M.eai  To Burn. Or Not To Burn  There will be few people in Western Canada, whether farmers, business  men or wage earners who will quarrel with the policy which resulted in tbe  announcement of the Canada Grain Board's establishment of a minimum  price of 87������_ cents for No. 1 Northern wheat f.o.b. Fort William.  Regardless of political affiliations or economic beliefs thc general public in the west greeted the announcement with approval as soon as it was  made and, it is to be hoped, it will be accorded general backing in the  east as well.  But the extent to which this policy will ensure to the benefit of Western farmers, who are hard pressed as a result of a prolonged period of  drought, followed this year by a most disappointing situation as a result  of wide-spread ravage of the wheat crops by rust, -will depend *upon the  price spreads -which, at the time of writing, are expected to be announced  any day.  As harvesting and threshing operations progress, the amount of damage from rust is being daily revealed as a disaster of immense proportions,  and while estimates of the extent of the loss sustained by farmers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan vary from day to day, it is quite apparent that the  final figures will show a loss of great magnitude.  T^Thlfi   i*tic*r*   **t������Ti~r**,H   *|ti*V5_/^-p^   lowy-A   ^*s*?5c������k   ft*?   #*l*sg^  ^4^3+   '���������sayh-f^Si*'   "P^Q^-ViT^f*"   ���������&���������**$*_*������-& ^  of the" west with such devastating effect, has not only reduced yields of  what earlier in the season promised to be abundant crops but it has depreciated the grades to an extent comparable with the lowered yields.  At the moment there are thousands of acres of low grade wheat standing in the field awaiting the time when the grain is sufficiently dry to ensure a good burn because it does not pay to cut it.  Before taking this drastic action to destroy a lot of grain which conceivably may be of some value at a future date, farmers would be well advised to at least await the promised announcement of spreads prices. It is  quite possible that the spreads may be set at such figures that even the lowest grade wheat can be threshed and stored on the farm, without too serious  loss to the grower.  The Federal government has recognized the loss sustained by farmers  through drought in the past few years as a national calamity and it is  surely reasonable to suppose that the loss from rust this year will be regarded in the same category and that recognition will be given to the fact  when minimum prices for the lower grades are set. *  No one can gainsay the statement that the blame for damage by rust  cannot be laid at the farmer's door. Rust damage is just as much, a national calamity as the drought loss of recent years and, this being the case,  there is every reason why the national purse strings should be loosened to  relieve the predicament in which such a large number of Western farmers  find themselves with winter knocking at the door.  It must be remembered that the grain about to be delivered to the  flames has already cost the farmer something in outlay and labor and  would cost more if it -were cut, threshed and hauled to the elevator.  Unfortunately the present market price is too low to cover all these  costs, without taking into consideration any margin of profit for the farmer  who raised the grain.  If the crop is destroyed by fire not only does the grower lose what he  has already put into it in cash and labor, but it represents a loss to the  country at large. It might be well worth the country's while to advance  the farmer at least sufiicient money to save the grain by way of a fixed  minimum, price, thus salvaging what has already been spent on the crop  and perhaps saving what might otherwise have to be expended later in the  form of relief.  Such a measure might we!! be regarded in the light of a partnership  between the individual and the nation for the mutual benefit of both.  There is also the question of the effect on the morale of the unfortunate grower. After losing a series of crops from drought the economic necessity of burning a crop which was not very long ago so promising must  have a disheartening effect on the stoutest heart. If this effect can be  averted without serious financial loss to the country, it may be well worth  the expenditure.  Bomb Shelter De Luxe  City Of "Paris Making Provision For  Air Raids  Thirty feet under the   ground    In  the Avenue Foch,    one  of the moat  fashionable     residential    streets     in  Paris, a model concrete shelter  has  been constructed for use in the event  of air raids.   The shelter consists  of  several rooms equipped with all conveniences,    including   apparatus   for  detecting the presence of poison gas  outside.   It -will serve aa the model  for many -mpre^which are to be'built  by the city of Paris. It is built under  a mansion. Its roof is a block of concrete six feet thick.  Above this is 10  feet   of  earth then a one-foot thick  block.of concrete, and finally another  layer of earth. Two stairways lead to  the shelter, and at the foot of each  is a steel and concrete door weighing  a ton. There are special   rooms   for  giving    first   aid to injured persons,  machine rooms for light and ventilation purposes.������ and   storerooms.   Although it is connected with the city's  regular light supply, the    shelter   is  equipped with generators   and    batteries for providing its own light if  necessary.  MAN  MAN!  China Has New Tax  After  Next May Thoso Who Cannot  Read WiU Be Fined  China has announced that after  May 1, 1936, anyone in Nanking between the ages of six and fifty who  cannot read will be fined. Appalled at  the ignorance of the people of the  capital, the Chinese authorities have  issued a primer of 1000 characters  and ordered students to teach the  ignorant from it or give up hope of  graduation. As half the population  of the city cannot read, the students  will be kept busy until the new law  goes into effect. The police will be  the official examiners, and will stop  anyone they wish who if he fails to  read the primer, will have to pay the  equivalent of half a cent on the spot.  The penalty is called the Ignorant  People's Tax.  It's bigger! It's richer i  It lasts longer, tod.

Sting Of Giant Type  Proved  To Italian  A sting by a giant jelly-fish has resulted in the death of S_ty#tore Can-  tarella, an Italian cane faring near  Brisbane. He was bathing at Coo-  garra Beach when he suddenly cried  out loudly for help. His companions  rushed out and pulled, him ashore. He  was given artificial respiration and  restoratives but in vain, and he died  on his way to the hospital. Tentacle  marks were found on his body and it  was at first thought V that he had  been attacked by an^ octopus. Later,  however, it was found that he had  been paralysed by a giant "Portuguese Man of War," a type of Jellyfish that is found along the Queensland coast. These -jelly-fish often  have tentacles up to 12 feet long,  and their sting is capable of causing  temporary paralysis.

BRITAIN STANDS  BEHtHD LEAbliE  ITALY IS TOLD  Nazi Congress  Geneva.���������Great Britain stands unreservedly by the covenant of the  League of Nations, the league assembly was told. Sir Samuel Hoare,  foreign secretary, was clear and emphatic as he addressed the league  assembly.* "The attitude* of His  Majesty's government,'' he declared,  "has always been one of unwavering  fidelity to . the league and all it  stands for."  The present dispute between Italy  and Ethiopia was no exception:"Tbe  recent response of public Opinion  shows hoW completely the nation supports the government in full acceptance of the obligations of league  membership," said Sir Samuel.  Great Britain supported the league  from no selfish nor imperialist motives. The'British government and  the British people maintained support of the league as the most effective means of ensuring peace.  But collective security meant more  than what are commonly called  sanctions. "It means not merely  article 16 but the whole covenant. It  assumes scrupulous respect for all  treaty obligations. Its foundation is  a series of fundamental obligations  freely accepted by .members of the  league to, submit any dispute likely  to lead to war to peaceful means of  settlement."      '  One thing was certain, he added  pointedly: If the buaden of obligations under the covenant had to be  borne it must be borne collectively,  "If risks for peace are to be run,  they must be run by all.  "On behalf of His Majesty's government in the United Kingdom I  can say they will be second to none  ^^^-1-,   ^_t__*;^���������   t-n.  ���������Fulfil*   TxritViin   fh������->  UlXBli    ltH.Cil8.i8JU.    8.V.

The British government felt the  present problem was economic rather  than, politicals It. was the fear of  withholding essential colonial raw  materials" which was causing alarm.  Britain was ready to share in any  collective attempt to deal in a fair  and effective, way with the difficulty.  He suggested an inquiry "which  should be limited in this case to raw  materials from colonial areas, including protectorates and mandated  territories."  "I suggest emphasis in the terms  of reference should fall upon the free  distribution of such raw materials  among the industrial nations which  require them so all fear of exclusion  or monopoly may be removed  once  for all."  In his conclusion, Sir Samuel said:  "The league stands, and my country  stands with it, for collective maintenance of the covenant in its entirety,  particularly for steady collective resistance to all acts of unprovoked  aggression. The attitude of the British nation in the last few weeks has  clearly demonstrated this is no variable and unreliable sentiment, but a  principle of international conduct to  which they and their government  hold with firm, * ^enduring, universal  persistence."  The foreign secretary said, "If only  these war clouds could be dispelled,  with how much greater effect could  wo turn to those economic questions  that often matter so much more in  tho modern world than political problems."  The British secretary asserted the  ���������spirit of war "oven perhaps of war  for war's sake has raised its head in  moro places than ono," adding that  "from tho growing fear of war"  armaments are increasing, evon in  Britain, therefore "a vicious circle of  insecurity has boon set up."

Premier Aberhart said he was satisfied with the interim credit after a  final conference with Pr������3mier Bennett,  Finance Minister Rhodes and treasury ofllcials. He asked for $18,289,-  000, -which he believed was necessary  to carry Alberta safely through its  present fiscal year, which ends  March 31, 1936. Premier Bennett  took the attitude he should not bind  the next government and agreed to  advance enough money to carry the  province until the? end of October.

Feeder cattle are likely to be considerably higher in price this fall as  some stock already has been contracted to the United States at prices  from $3.50 to $3.75, Mr. Guild observed. The spread between buying  and selling price was not likely to be  as *wide as last year, but in previous  years narrower margins had meant  profits to efficient feeders.

From the sorters the fruit passes onto  four belts���������two on either side of the  grader, household and fancy���������from  where they drop onto cup carriers and  are deposited, according to weight, into  the right bin. This system of grader  operation is very simple and the apples  are handled with extreme care. Instead  of being dumped they are rolled gently  from the cup carriers to a belt and then  into a piece of canvass and into the bin.  The rotary bins give one the impression  of many woBhing machines as they are  round and the bottom con ti oiled by  springs which move the fruit up and  down according to the weight. Each bin  will hold from three to four boxes when  full.  The rotary grader is run by three  motors of three, two and one horsepower. At Long, Allan ���������& Long shed at  Erickson there are 18 rotary bins to each  section, milking a total of 36, which  number will keep a dozen packers busy.

First Movie Film Of This Kind Is  Made In "London  The first motion picture film ever  to be made without a camera was  shown to the public in Londoh.YEng.,  under the auspices of the post office.  It consisted of colored patterns  which moved in tempo with a rumba  played on the sound track of the film.  The patterns were applied directly to  the film by hand.  The invention was made by an Australian artist, Len Lye, who sought  by use of a'film to avoid the mechanical difficulties encountered in providing a color accompaniment to music  by means of electric lights.  The post oflice has ordered other  films of the same nature, which will  be used to advertise its services.  C. N.

HONORS PIONEERS  The Automobile World  Over  Thirty-five   Million   Cars   Are  In Use  The motorist who brags of 100,000  miles has still some distance to go  to cover the world's highways. In a  little booklet issued by the Automobile Manufacturers' association,  packed with unusual and interesting  information, it is stated that there  are 9,231,000 miles of highway in the  world.  The United States has 3,065,254,  one-third of the total. Soviet Russia  is second with 1,682,109, and Japan,  rather surprising in view of its small  area, is third, with 594,626. Australia  takes fourth place, with 468,251, and  Canada is fifth with 409,124. At the  other end of the scale is Gibraltar,  with 15 miles of road, and French  Somaliland with 25. But Gibraltar  has 66 cars to each mile of road,  while the United States has only 8.1  per mile, and Canada 2.7.  According to the booklet, the average life of cars is 8% years. It is  said also that 95 per cent of all car***,  sell for les3 than $750 wholesale; that  farmers use 26 per cent, of all  trucks; that there are 35,087,000 motor vehicles in the world, of which  71 per cent, are in the United States;  that motorists pay six times the taxes  they paid 15 years ago; that In automobile deaths per 10,000 motor  vehicles Canada has the second  lowest standing in the world, with  9.1���������second to New Zealand's 6.6���������  and Italy the highest at 54.5.���������Edmonton Journal.

Sir Edward Beatty, G.B.E., chairman and president of the Canadian  Pacific Railway, is shown here beside the cairn which marks at Craigellachie,  B.C., the spot where Lord Strathcona, in the preseince of Sir William Van  Home and others of Canada's railway giants, drove the last spike completing the Canadian Pacific Railway from ocean to ocean across more than  3,000 miles of formidable country, on November 7, 1885. In the golden  jubilee of the Canadian Pacific's history, Sir Edward, during his current  trans-Canada tour, dropped ofiL* his special train at Craigellachie to pay his  respects to the memory of the builders of his great transportation company  and to receive the greetings of Craigellachie's handful of citizens.  Explanations And Comment  Rejoice in Suffering, verses 2-4.  Greet it as pure joy, my brothers,  when you come across any sort ot*  trial, sure that the sterling temper  of your faith produces endurance;  only, let your endurance be a finished product, so that you may be finished and "complete, with never a defect (MofEatt'a translation). It is  not upon his own authority that  James counsels his readers to count  it all joy when trials befall them, for  he at once reminds them of their  own experience, knowing as they did,  that the testing of their faith created endurance. Trials are not a joy in  themselves, but when rightly borne  they are to be rejoiced in, as opportunities for practicing virtues. Recall Mt. 5:11,  12.  "This doctrine of joy in suffering  which at first sight seems to be almost superhuman, is shown by experience to be less hard than the  apparently more human doctrine of  resignation and fortitude. The effort  to be resigned, and to, suffer without  complaining, is not a very inspiriting  effort. Its tendency is toward depression. It does not lift us out of  ourselves or above our tribulations.  On the contrary, it leads rather to  self-contemplation and a brooding  over miseries. Between mere resignation and thankful joy there is all  the difference that there is between  mere obedience and affectionate  trust.   The one   is    submission;    the  Sunlight  Is  Trapped  Tnoreniou'*- Device Ensures Full Bens-  fit Of Son's Rays In The Home  In a block of fiats now being built  in London, sunlight is being "laid  on.** '..  Not just sun-ray lamps or artificial  sun-ray apparatus, but real sunshine,,  so harnessed that it switches itself  on as soon as the sun appears, and  switches on the electric light as the  sun disappears.  This is the first installation in England of an ingenious device invented,  by a French engineer, Jacquea  Arthuys, which puts sunlight "on.  tap" for domestic lighting.  The device enables every room in.  a house, including the darkest celiac  to be efficiently lighted by the rays  of the sun, even .with blinds drawn  across the windows, or even if there-  are no windows.  This is achieved by an arrangement of mirrors and lenses. Up on.  the roof there is a big mirror mounted on a slowly rotating axis, operated  by a tiny l-6th horse-power motor.  . A mercury thermostatic device,,  worked by the heat of the sun, controls the motor and thus keeps the-  mirror moving just enough to make  it follow the sun across the sky���������so-  that it is always receiving the direct  rays over its entire surface of 40*  square feet.  These rays are reflected by another  mirror-fixed at-, an angle that will deflect them down a vertical shaft to  the basement."- At the height of the-  ceiling in each room are mirrors, so-  arranged that a number of descending rays are trapped as they reach  each storey and deflected to the ceilings of the rooms surrounding the-  shaft.  The rays are then finally deflected  Fruit Imported By Canada  Canada, tho United Kingdom,  Prance, Germany and Austria are  leading world importers of fruit.

SYNOPSIS  Nancy Nelson is a sub-deb, a gay,  irresponsible girl of nineteen, with no  ���������care beyond the choice of her costume for her coming-out party. Suddenly, in the market crash,' her indulgent father loses all he had, and  his family is faced with the necessity of a simpler method of living.  At this juncture a letter is received  ���������from an eccentric relative in Colorado, who offers the girl a home on  what seems to be impossible conditions.  . ..After much- ��������� consideration, ._��������� Cpusin  -Columbine's offer is accepted, and  Nancy and Jack arrive at Pine Ridge.  YNancy set out one afternoon to  ���������climb to the top of a hill so as to  obtain -Va ? view "of the surrounding  landscape and missels the path Aturora  Tubbs had told her to follow. A truck  comes along the road, driven by Matthew Adams, and she asks him which  way to" go. They ascend the hill,  look around, and then go on to  Cousin Columbine's. There Mark  Adam tells Nancy that his brother  Luke has broken his leg, and that  Jack. Nelson has been hired to help  out while Luke's leg gets better. With  Jack away, Nancy finds that she Is  lonesome, and having no books to  read, the idea of starting a public  library at Pine Ridge seems a good  one, and Nance writes home to get  her parents to send all the books they  could spare and all they could induce  others to let them have.  Nance and Matthew Adam go  Christmas shopping in a neighboring  town. On their return to Pine Ridge,  Nance is amazed to see the Columbine residence all lit up, and asks  Matthew if he knows why. He said:  Let's go in and see. Then Nancy  learns that she is having her debut,  but in a different setting than had  boen planned for her In Boston.  Nancy'a parents and friends gave  their liberal support to her request  for books, and a sizeable box arrived  in due course. Father Adam painted  a sign for the library, and the Adam  boys worked on tho shelves for the  books and decorations to make the  room look presentable.

"It's on a hillside back from the  road," he told them. "Most of the  I graves seem to be children's and unmarked. Was there ever a smallpox  epidemic in these parts, Cousin Columbine? It seemed strange finding  a cemetery way off there."  "He means that little burying  ground near West Creek, doesn't he ?"  questioned John Adam.  "Not if West Creek's a town," responded Jack.  "Do you recall a mile or so farther  nn. Taflssiraor & H-ttreilino- "h.QUH9 and. two  ramshackle buildings that looked fit  to collapse at the first high wind?"  asked Cousin Columbine.  Jack nodded; and the old lady continued: .���������Those,;* buildings, and that  wayside cemetery, are all that remain to tell *l"h^ tale of a prodigious  hoax which was planned and carried  out successfully by old Marsh Pemperton. You Adams have heard the  story many times."  "Never from you," Eve * Adam reminded her. "Tell it again, Miss Columbine. You saw the place in its  heyday, I suppose."  "I surely did; and to one of my  age it's not even ancient history. The  Pemperton hoax was started in 1894,  soon after the boom at Cripple  Creek. I dare say that as a child,  Eve, you heard your people mention  it, for the news must have spread  much farther lhan Denver. You see,  the general feeling in those days was  that all these mountains were lined  with gold, and that any one could  ta������ce a pick and dig it out; but old  man Pemperton had been working a  tunnel with no success, and   I   dare  It was that evening, seated before  n crackling hearth-fire at tho Adam  ranch, that Cousin Columbine told  thom tho   story   of   tho   Pemperton  WV-������ I ��������������� ������8*88 -iSI -Smr- \\% r* 3"> *  i,1 AJv  YA$!*,v; REA P'' 'Ol RE-CTIQNS :M  \ 'Sto!-;..-.

"That I can't tell you; but it was  plenty anyway, and the lurid tales  off quickly gotten wealth at Cripple  Creek probably mado him furious  that his own acres were useless save  as pasture land. So at last he determined to mako use of the prevailing  excitement to feather his nest, an  idea which ho carried out with exceeding shrewdness, as you shall  hear.  "I sometimes wonder," wont on  Miss Columbine dreamily, "if old  Marsh Pomperton started this hoax  on a sudden impulse, or if ho lay on  his bed in the long, still hours off  night in that peaceful valley, and  planned it.out. At any rate, homado  a trip to Cripple Crook to purchaao  Bomo gold oro; and a wook or two  later ho emerged from bio tunnel  stuttering with excitement and bpth  hands full of nuggets!"

That  sounds incredible now, but it's the  way things go In boom days. I've  seen it happen. >:;.....  "More than a thousand people, pos-  sib%* twice that number came pouring in. The town was incorporated;  a man named Tyler was made mayor,  and another whose name I can't recall was sheriff. "When I saw the  place there were no less than a dozen  saloons���������three general stores���������a long  street of frame houses or tents, and  even two ������re-Gnashing machines,  though not. one ounce of precious  metal was ever discovered in the  vicinity."  ''What became Of the people when  the bubble burst?"  "Drifted away, poor souls, leaving  their dead behind them���������their high  hopes -crushed. I recall one family  stopping at our house for water, and  Father bringing them, in to be fed  and warmed. They were a pitiful  sight: the young mother frail and  worn by hardshi*pi*? the father in  ragged shirt and trousers, and an  ailing baby. They promised to let  us know how things-went with them,  but we never heard."  " 'Ships that pass in the night/"  said Matthew softly, and Luke broke  in:  "But will you tell us how old Pemperton escaped being tarred and  feathered when the hoax was discovered?"  "For the very ?gpod reason," replied Miss Columbine, "that the  scamp was nowhere tp be found!  When the boom was at its height he  disappeared; and now all that is left  of the 'ghost city" which bore his  name, are those tumble-down buildings Cone of which cost a woman five  thousand dollors, I was told), and  that small burying ground -where lie  the bodies of, those who were too  frail to survive tntr'rig'ors off frontier  life." Y .^V'  :��������� "I'd like tp see: that place," said  Nancy, as Cousin Columbine ceased  speaking. ' f  "You shall, my dear; and "we'll  make an excursion out on the plains  as -well. They can be so beautiful,  our western prairies, that I hate to  think how cruel they sometimes are."  "Cruel?" Nance questioned, a little  puzzled. "You mean those sudden  blizzards when the' grazing cattle  have no shelter? Well, this winter's  over, Cousin Columbine, and if you've  no objection 111 start getting  acquainted with the plains to-morrow. I've got a marvellous idea.  Why can't I ride to Prairie Ranch  with Jack and Matthew? It would  be a lark."  "You're a new woman, Nance  Nelson," remarked her brother, "If  you regard as anything ILke a lark  the necessity off piling, out of bed  along with the robins! We'll pass  your tower at five a.m., young lady.  Do you think you can make it?"  "Of course she'll mako It," put in  Matthew eagerly. "We'll* get lunch  at "Uncle Tom's, Nance. It'll bo bully  having you along.".  Thus it was settled, though on the  ride homo that night Cousin Columbine predicted a change off weather.  Despite this prophecy the  sun  was  shining when Nance awoke, dressed  rapidly, and   slipped   downstairs   'on  tip-too:; but as she passed the lower  bedroom a call arrested her.  "That you, Nancy?"  Nanco opened tho door.  "Did I wako you up?    You  were  wrong   about   the   weather,   Cousin  Columbine.  It's a lovely morning."'

"What sort of stockings have you  got on?"  The question caught . her at the  door, and the girl turned, a bit exasperated.  "Don't let that worry you! I'm  wearing sport shoes and woollen hose.

She made sure  that Jack had taken his sheep-lined  coat���������^looked up at the sky, and said  at the last moment: *T sort of wish  you wouldn't g:o, Nancy. There's  something in the air this morning  that I don't like."  "Now don't you worry, Miss Columbine," soothed Matthew. "If  there's the least suspicion of bad  weather, we'll keep her safe at Uncle  Tom's until it's over."  This seemed reasonable; and as  they waved good-bye a robin hopped  down from a spruce tree and. began  his breakfast at Miss Columbine's  bird board. But even this emblem, of  the springtime failed to cheer her.  "I ought to havo set my foot  down," she said soberly when. Aurora  Tubbs arrived an hour later. "I don't  like this air."  The sun played hide and seek all  morning, and at loot retired behind  a cloud and stayed there.

Columbine  Nelson kopt going to a window and  staring out. Her lunch, was left almost untasted. Twice she sat down  at tho telephone and then turned  away, knowing that If there were  anything to say Eve Adam would  hav-a called her.  The storm increased; and at half  past four, after moving restlessly  about tho house, Misa Columbine  stood so long at the front window  that Aurora, who had boon curiously silent during those dragging hours,  burst out: "Don't you keep fretthV  so, Miss Columbine.
