Cart hew  Ae an introduction, I cau not do better  than use the words of the late Mr, P. Barry  in the introduction to his -"Fruit Garden.'*  ''fhe suhject of truit growing is one in  which almost all classes -of the community  are more or leas practically engaged and interested.  Agriculture is pursued < by one class, and  commerce by, another, the mechanic -arts,  fine arts, and learned professions by others;  but fruit culture to a greater or less extent  by all.  It is the desire of every man;  whathever  t 4        '  f t  may be his pursuit or condition in life,  (whether .he live in town or country, to enjoy fineiruita, to provide them for hia family, and, if possible, to cultivate the trees  in his open garden with his own hands.  The agriculturist, whatever may be the  extent of his grounds, considers an orchard,,  at least, indispensable. The merchant or  .profesional man who has" by half a lifetime  of drudgery in town, secured a fortune or  competency that enables .him to retire to a  country or suburban' villa, looks fonward to  his fruit garden as one of the chief sources  of those rural comforts .and pleasures he so  long and so earnestly labored and hoped for.  The artizan who has, laid up enough from  '. his earnings to purchase a homestead, considers the planting of his fruit trees as one  ! of the first and most .important steps towards improvement. He anticipates the  pleasure of lending' them in his spare hours  of watching their j-rowth and progress to  maturity, and of gathering the ripe aud de*  hcous fruit, and placing tnem before his  family and' friends as tne valued produce ot  his own garden, and ot, his own skill aad  labor. e '   .  t 1  ?Fortu9ately in the United State/ land is  so easily obtained a* to.be wiuhiu tue reach  pt every industrious man; and the climate,  and soil being so favorable to ' the produe-  , tion ot fruit, Auidricaus^, "if they be not already, must become txuly, "a nation of  fruit groovers."  Every word of. tne above cau be applied  to Bmtish Columbia, even wah greater  force tb;-in to the United States, as witnes-  the exhibition at Spokane, where our ex-  hibit carried off so many prizes.  We have in Comox a climate as good as  the most tavored fruit growing coutur.e-3 of  England, with a. soil second to none. It  only requires a person to see tho quality of  the apples, pears, aad plums shown at our  exhibition to know that Comox is well  adapted to the growth of all the more hardy  fiuits. vI do noo include poaches aud grapes  although they can under favorable cireutn-  otauctd be grown, as was .shown by those on  exhibition last* tall. Some fruits appear to  do better here than elsewhere; for instance,  tno ixraveastien appie, aud tne Vicar of  VViukheid pears.  I know that thousands of dollars have  been spent in purt-hasiug aud planting fruit  trees, aud yet we see so few good orchards.  What is the cause of our failure "���������*  I sl-viU, to the best of my ability, try t*>  antiwar tuia question. Firyt, want of {haulage; tiecoud, ylAiiting on unsuitable soil;  thud, improper planting; fourth, poor selection of varieties; fifth, wauc of utter cultivation,  .Fruit trees,, to grow with any degree of  success, must be planted on laud that, is  either naturally or artificially drained, so  that water will not stand about their roots.  As a tost, dig a hole %k or 3 reet deep; two  or three hours alter a heavy shower, examine the hole, and if you tind water standing in it the laud required to be drained.  Tlie soil best adapted to the apples, is a  rich sandy loam, not too light; for pears and  has got well established it can staod a good  deal of abuse, but when first planted it re-  quires a certain amount oE caro'and atten-,  tion; it must have a considerable space of  good loose soil in which to make it3 toots,  bo as -to get established.0  The proper way to plant is to make a circle six feet in diameter; dig the top soil ono  spade deep, throw "this on one Bide of the  hole, then dig another spade' deep and  throw it on the other side; now turn'over  the soil iu the bottom of the hole -one spade  deep, and break it up thoroughly.

Beanie and keep your pegs  in line.    .  I have alluded to improper planting, as  one cause of failure. It has been the custom  to. make the holes 'figg small.    When a tre.i?  inches of  throw a'quantity of the top soil in the bottom, a little' higher in  the centre;   take a  plant examine the roots,  and if ���������, any have f  ' been broken or   cut   with ; the spade,  trim -  them  with a sharp   kiufo,-  so as to make a  ���������clean cut.  ' If they are left broken or rough, ;  they are liable   to decay,   but if cut clean  there is a surface from which new roots will  ' start to fill the place of those lost in mov-'  ing.    Cut back the top to balance the roots  as a great deal   of roots are lost in moving  "from tbe nursery.    After the ;plant is trim*  ' med let one man hold it upright in the hole  in the position in which it is to stand, that  when the planting is iiai^htcf the  collar  of  the tree, will be about 2 inches below the'  surface."    Let the roots be carefully spread  out in their natural position'; fill in amongst  them with-the finest of the top soil, "being  careful to leave co vacances,  let the upper  roots be held back by tine assistant "luring  , the time yon   are   filling   the   lower   one.  When yon have got, the roots covered, and  the hole about half   filled,  the soil   can be  gently pressed with  the feet;  then fill up  with tte under soil,   pow tramp  firm.    Do  sot use manure in planning,   any that'may  be required cac be put on "tbe surface; .this  , will act as a mulch, .and the rains will wash  juices, "down to  the'roota,'  which is better  than the roots coining iu - contact with the  manure. ^ ' ,'*;"-  If the weather and soil be dry, in advanced spriug planting, you may use about  a pail of water "after the first'tramping; in  fall or eai ly spring planting, this is liot required. ' ,  In exposed situations, when large-trees  arc planted, one or more stakes should be  nsod to keep them steady until they get  established, that 13 one or two years.  Be sure to mulch your trees after planting, that js, spread,. two or three inches of  half rotted manure, straw, or hay around  the tree, to a distance of three feet. This  will prevent the sod drying out during a  dry time, it will also help keep the roots  moist and warm, a condition that is highly  favorable to the promotion of new roots.  Some of you may say, there is a great  deal of work attending the planting of treesj  Well, there is a good deal of work, but as I  said before you are not planting for a few  years, but for another generation, and  remember, that to be suie of success you  must do the v/oik well.  I remember reading in the American Agriculturist, that two farmers met one spring  evening. They were both tired after a hard  day's work, one of them made the remark  that he had been planting apple trees. "So  have I," said the other; "I got ten trees  to-day." "Ten trees 1" exclaimed the first  speaker, "I have planted one hundred,'  "Well," said farmer No.2, "I would not  give my ten treci for your hundred." And  h<- was right; tor in two years time there  ���������were only twenty poor sickly things left, the  rent were dead, and every one of the other?  man's teu, had made a fine healthy growth.  Aad now for after cultivation. This consists iti koeping the ground well worked,  and we-.l manured for the five or six years.  This' ������i������ )>*38t be done by growing a hoed  crop between tlie- trees���������potatoes, beets, or  carrots. This should pay for the expense,  and should supply the manure.  Never take 9. crop of grain off your youDg  orchard, neither allow grass to grow there  until the treed havo got well estab-  .liehed. L-ok well to your youna treesj  and keep thorn in good open shape, by prun-  ning iu early spring and pinching in summer.  With respect to varieties, select only  sueh as have been grown with success by  your neighbors. Of course a few may be  planted for testing, but never plant an orchard of untested varieties.  The kinds I can personally recomend are:  Riunrnc, Eiriy Harvest, and Red Astricaus.  I boiieve Yellow Traaspaveut, may be added  to the IL-it. "For fall,. G-ravenstien, Fall  Queen, and Snow; for winter, Baldwin,  Northern Spy, R. I. Greening, Waxeu, and  Ra.rn.bo, and many other varieties do well  here, but these are my choice. Do not plant  too many varieties.  When getting trees, be sure and deal with  aonp but trustworthy firms, firms who have.  ,a reputation.    To   mention   we   have suck  farms in the province,   from   whom may be  obtained, good sound healthy' stock, trueto  name, and cheaper  taking  everything into  consideration than can be purchased outside.'  Beware of tree peddlers. They ,are a deiusib*' ,  and a snare.    They have plundered the fuiw,  mers of Cemox for years, and the moat cruet >  kind of plundering.,. It it   was taking their  money without   giving value,   that   would ,  be bad enough; but they have done worse,  they xold trees, which we have taken at  heir  wotrd, -planted and nursed then), and waited '  for long yean,   only to  find that tbey["are'-  not the varieties we expected, perhaps t_oth# ' '  ing but seedlings that have missed takfng ia    '  the nursery rows. ������ ���������'    ' ' '    t ,  *    Every person who has fruit trees planted  .  or who intends to plaut, should have a cood "   '  practical work on fiuit growing,  as a,book' ���������-'  of reference.

How   tbe  Dons   Once   Tried   to   Capture  , North America. .  The present trouble with Spain recalls  the historic attempt of tho dons to captura  North America. ~  In June, 1732, King- George II granted  Oglethorpe a charter, by it ceding to him  for the period of 21 years tho country between Savannah and tho Altamaba rivor  and west from the headwaters of these to  the Pacific,,to be held in trust "for- the  poor."  In 1736 Oglethorpe laid out a town site  at tbe mouth of the Altamaha rivor on St.  Simon's island, the spot now being known  as Fred erica.  In tho meantime tho Spanish officials ut  St.  Aufiustino viewed   with  jealous eye  ���������    what they considered an encroachment on  thoir boundary rights and began to threaten war.  Oglothorpo returned to'England, while  i>     thero , securing  military  coiniriandership  ,i   over tho country now comprised in South  Carolina and Georgia and tho title of brigadier general.  Ho then wont to tho highlands, of Scotland and gathered as sturdy a  band  as  over followed William Wallaco on a battlefield.    This ho trained  and  drilled with  '     especial roferonce to tho wild kind of fight-  -ing which would have to be undertaken in  the new world.    Tho regiment was then  transported  to Georgia and   tho work of  the fort pushed steadily on to completion.  In 1740   tidings  came of  war between  ���������  England and Spain.    Oglothorpo  immediately resolved on tho invasion of Florida.  , After a five weeks' siego of St. Augustine  and accomplishing nothing ho rcturnod to  Frederica.  The Spaniards meanwhile busied tbcin-  -,'��������� selves concerting measures of retaliation.  Troops wcro gathered from Cuba, and,.ac-  ' companied   by a largo  fleet  of  powerful  men-of-war,-tho army moved toward the  mouth of the St. Mary's.  " On July 5, 1743, a bloody encounter occurred between tho Spanish fieot of "J8 vessels and  tbe  batteries on  tho southern  .  ' point of St. Simon's island, resulting in a  victory for tho invaders.   .,  The Spanish, finding themselves unopposed,,landed at Glasconis bluff and'took  , . possession of tbe abandoned English camp.  From this location a road led to Fredorica.  On its ono sido was a donse forest and on  tho other a morass. - The Spanish officers  held a council of war and resolved, to  march on Frederica along this road. The  army was djvided into two sections, the  ���������   one io precede and the other to re-enforce  - if the 'enemy proved too strong. .*��������� -  , Oglethorpe^ posted' his men along tbo  wooded sido of tho road, with instructions  to attack at a given signal and drive tbe  ' Spaniards into tho morass. The Spanish  van was well to the front of the ambuscade whon the signal was sounded. Immediately tho attack was takon up by  ' each detail, and before the , astounded  Spaniards could realizo what had happened  - they wore falling before tho well directed  volleys of the-Highlanders and being slowly pushed into tho morass.  Disposing of tho fow remaining Invad-  ' era, Oglothorpo ordered his followers to  niovo farther down tovvard tho enomy's  camp and awaited tho coming of tho second division. Ignorant of tho fate of thoir  brethren, ths soldiers marched gayly forward, moving in'disordered ranks and not  troubled by any thoughts of danger.  They arrivod opposite tho men lying in  wait, and the first few columns passod  thorn until Oglothorpo, assuring himself  that none could escape, sounded tho second signal. In an instant tho narrow strip  of ground was converted into a shamble.  So discouragod wero tho fow remaining  Spanish officers and privates that a retreat was resolved on, and soven days nft-  ���������or the terrible chastisement which they  lhad sustained tho remnantof the onco invincible force boarded their ships, and,  following the example of tho armada and  in almost as doplorablo  plight, sailed out  A HOPELESS INVALID.  SUCH WAS  THE   CONDITION   OF  MISS R_DD, OF BROOKLIN.  StorMf  Her  Remarkable  Was  An Editor Relates   the  Illness, and    How  Change    in    Her    Condition  Brought About.  From the Gazette, "Whitby, Ont.  For some five years the editor of  this  journal has made weekly visits to Brook-  lin in search of news.    One of his earliest  recollections of the village was in noting  that Miss   Levina   Rodd 'was   very  ill.  Miss Rodd was well known, and as  week  after week rolled round, it was natural to  ask how she   was   getting   on,  and, the  reply always came that she was no better.  Time, went on and it became a settled fact  that Miss Rodd was a confirmed invalid  and that such she would continue, until a  kind Providence  took mercy on her by  allowing death r to   end   her   sufferings.  -None of   the   villagers   anticipated any  other   ending.,     Our astonishment   can  better be imagined than described, therefore, when Mrs. Bert Wells hailed us ono  morning with "Well, we have some news  for you to-day."   "What is it ? " "Why.  Miss Rodd has gone on a visit to Columbus  friends."    "Why, I thought she   was a  confirmed invalid ?"      '"So she was, but  sho has been improving  so  much lately  that she is now able  to help herself a  good deal, and it was thought a, change  of scene would do  her'good."    "That is  certainly news," replied the quill pusher,  "and good  news   too;   but  what cured  her?"    "Dr. Williams'Pink Pills."  replied Mrs. "Vvells.     We then decided to  ask Mrs, Rodd upon her return for an  interview, but it was some time before it  took place, owing to the,: limited time at  our disposal-between trains,   and partly  owing to a desire to wait  and seo if the  improvement was likely to  prove' permanent:   However, after many put-offs,  Ve finally called at   the   home   of   Mrs.  Doolittle. a sister of Miss Eodd's,   who  has carefully cared for her during the  long illness.    At the request of the editor  Miss Rodd made the following statement:  "I am fifty years of age aud  have lived  in. Brookim ten yeaiv?.     Five j'ears ago  I was taken ill  with acute rheumatism,  and have not done a   day's   work since.  The trouble began with my feet and the  swelling extended to my arms, wrists and  shoulders, and finally settled in my neck.  I had such pain that I was obliged, to use  a walking stick  to   ease   me in   moving  about, and two and a half j'ears' ago  the  stick had to make way for a crutch.    At  this time I used, to ' get up a   little each  day, but it was"' not long before-1  was  "I suffered for days from a very severe  attack" of rheumatism and tried various  remedie?; several lotion?, electricity, etc.,  with little, if any, relief; but after applying "Quickcure" as directed, the pain was  much relieved, and in a few hours had  disappeared altogether. I can therefore  conscientiously recommend this remedy.  W. Noble Campbell,  Notary,'Quebec.

I got completelj' discouraged after ineffectually being treated by two physicians and trying the different medicines  recommended for my ailment. While I  was in this helpless c mdition my niece  came in one day and prevailed upon me  to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. After  taking two boxes I felt a slight change  for the better so I continued to take  them, with the effect thac 1 continued to  | improve slowly ever since. I now sleep  well; have a good appetite and have  gained in flesh. I can stand now, walk  about, and even got in and out of the  buggy upon tho occasion of my late visit  toCoJumbus. Since that time too, I feel  stronger and my reason for still using a  crutch is on account of my knees being  weak and a desire to not overtax my  strength. Jubilee Day was the first time  iu twenty-one months that I was 'able to  put my loot outside the. door and I am  satisfied had I tried Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills in the first place instead of the  other medicines used, I would have been  spared much suffering. I am sure I owe  my improvement to these pills alone."  Mrs. Doolittle, who, as we have previously state-i, attended her sister through her  trying illness, was equally strong in her  recommendations astoDr. Williams' Pink  Pills having affected the radical change.  and the three of us agreed that it would  be only just that this case should be  brought; to the notice of suffering humanity in the hope that it might prove a  blessing to more than -Miss Rodd, who  still continues to improve and who hopes  to again be able to do her full day's work  at no distant date.

As to  the two men who followed nie, I only  saw them in .the dark. It is evident that  instead of entering the chase themselves,  these worthies, suspecting a trick perhaps,  stuck by the train and sent the two  ^-Chilians who have come under their  orders after me.''  "Then it was all useless?"  "Not so. We have reduced the number  of ourfoes by two. That is something to  feel good over. I believe Lord Rackett  and Garcia are all we have to watch  now, and by my next coup d'etat I hope  to get rid of them."  "You have wesolved, then���������" begins  Larry, but his drawl is so- labored that  Jack, as is often tho case, finishes the  sentence for him.  ' "To have a special awaiting our arrival  in Denver, on, which we shall outstrip  the regular train and leave our foes behind."  "Three cheers for Doctor Jack!" but  the other's frown causes,Larry to restrain  his enthusiasm.  "in a lew nours, ** recurns tne doctor,  handing over the time-table, for they  have left Cheyenne.  They are whirled on their way. The  great Rockies have been climbed, beyond  which, lie the prairie lands of the corn-  growing states:  Their enemies seem very quiet, but it  is at such times the most danger is to be'  looked for. Perhaps they have engaged in  a little surprise of their own, which may  be sprung upon the party of Doctor Jack  at the moment when least expected.  Denver opens before them  "Get in readiness, Avis,   but   show no'  more excitement tban    if   we   meant   to  stop here for n meal like the   rest. of the  passengers," and Jack   snaps   his   valise  shut. i  "How about   our   trunks?" she   asks,  CHAPTER XXIX.  Presently the' Englishman is seen to  "look'through, the car? Larry declares that  he seems greatly surprised when his*eyes  fall upon Doctor Jack,' but he returns  again to .the seclusion of the' smoking  apartment, where doubtless^ various  schemes are being brought forward between the, colonel and , himself, having'  for their object tho detention of the  American, perhaps even his death.'   r  Having talked tho matter over with the  others as they pass the timo over the  little table, Jack proceeds to make out a  message which ne'desires to send ahead,  and which will give him a tight squeeze  on the game.  Then he waits for the conductor, with  whom he has a long talk" in the seclusion of the state-room.' Sworn to "secrecy  concerning the facts, this official folds  the message up with some bank bills  Jack hands over, and then the affair is as  good as arranged.  ���������Jack can lie on his oars,  all that   is   necessary    is  'to   watch   the  enemy and   circumvent   any   move looking to a sly attack from the rear. ,.  When Denver is reached by rthis transcontinental train, thero will bo a surprise in store for some people, no   doubt.  The schemes of the two allies may embrace a variety of forms, since one wants  the secret packet that seems of such immense value to Doctor Jack, while the  other covets his wife.  By this time, however, the bull-dog  aature of the British nobleman has been  fully aroused. He.hates Jack with intense  fervor. Every victory of tho American  stirs up the sluggish bad blood in his  veins, until ho is now in a condition  ���������bordering on frenzy, though outwardly-  cool, and could see the man against  whom his anger is kindled burned at the  stake with pleasure.  When two such unscrupulous plotters  strain their energies in the endeavor to  hatch up mischief, the chances are they  will arouse something of a commotion.  An hour   later   tho. sleeper   drops   off  woman like, thinking how terrible it  might be to land in New York without  her wardrobe.  "They will follow���������only a few hours  later. We don't dare take the risk of  transferring them to, the special. My  dear girl, you surely know money will  provide���������"  She puts a hand over his lips,' which  he immediately kisses.  "Say no more, Jack. .1 can get on if I  never se8 my trunk again. You know  best, dear."  "Denver���������half an hour ���������. for dinner,"  cries the brakesman, passing through the  car.  ' The train rolls into tho depot, and  stops. 'Around them is the wizard city  of Colorado, where in a decade magnificent ' blocks of business houses and  lovely palaces 'have sprung into existence.  They do not mean to ��������� lose , any time,  but having gathered what few packages  they carry, are ready to leave the sleeper  as soon as it comes to a stop.  Larry leers at' milord, who, standing  in the aisle; ' looks after them with a  peculiar expression on his face, and then  makes a motion with his arm to , Colonel  Garcia. v  No doubt he is very much surprised at  seeing them with their luggage���������at least  Larry takes this view.of it���������for a very  brief space of time.        , .   ���������    '  They pass out.  The conductor awaits their coming, for  ho desires to,see them win, and at once  says:���������-"'-  "Follow(-me, Doctor Jack.. I will show  you where your soecial lies.'.'  "Gentlemen, T���������m sorry to detain you,  but truth to tell I have a,document here  that requires your presence at police  hcaquarters," says a* tall' man, opening  his coat and showing a detective's badge,  while two blue-coated officers push into  yiew.  Larry's -jaw drops, Doctor Jack frowns,  at once recognizing a bold ' move of the  enemy. * '  "Perhaps you have made .a mistake,"  he says, knowing full well, however, that  this is not so.       ���������      '        \      .  "You are Doctor Jack 'Evans, of New  York?",-      "   . -  "Yes?"

I wather guess Denver agwees with  milord. He may take a notion to settle  down there," laughs Larry, but that is  where   he counts without his host.  CHAPTER XXX.  of old  in Texas?"  right.  Let   us   see your war-  from the train which goes on and leaves  it on the open prairie. Luckily the accident is discovered by the conductor a  few minutes later. He happens to look  out of a window and sees lights a mile  or so in the rear, where no illumination  could be expected, pokes his head out  still farther, counts the cars, and finds  his train one short of the number with  which it started.  So he pulls the cord, stops the train,  and they back down the track to secure  the lost sleeper. Already those on board  have become aware of the situation, and  crowd the platform. An investigation  shows that it has been no accident. Some  strong hand uncoupled the cars after  detaching the bell-rope and accomplishing other things thai; are necessary on  account of the vestibule.  No one makes any accusation. True,  Colonel Gar<*ia was in the smoking compartment, but he was tho first to give the  alarm, and declares he saw a rough man,'  i whom he took to bo a trainman, doing  something outside the door, but paid  little heed to the matter until the sleeper  slowed up, when, looking along tho track,"  he '���������discovered they were left.  Lord Rackett ventures the august  opinion that this is the work of train  robbers, who intended going through the  sleeper when the remainder of the east-'  bound train had passed from sight.  Some of the passengers grasp this story  eagerly. Strange how people want to be  connected with somo notoriety, especially  when it does not cost anything and in-,  volvcs no dangers.  Doctor Jack and Larry exchange a  glance, and even the dude's smile is sug-:  gestive. Evidently they know just about  how that car chanced to be left behind.  The rough man was all in the mind of  the indignant Garcia.  Again they move forward.  One of the colonel's first acts is to wash  his hands, which fact Larry reports with  considerable emphasis.  Tlie conductor is suspicious, and during the remainder of the night keeps a  Blose watch upon the sleeper '' Diana.''  It will not redound to his credit to leave  a ear filled with first-class passengers  standing on the main track.  . It is a game of diamond cut diamond,  now,and as yet Jack seems to be holding his  own, yes,and gaining ground continually.  Another dawn aud all well. So the  day and night pass and Ogden is left far  behind.  The   train   is   on   time.    That golden  lubricator appears to be   doing   its   duty^  remarkably well.    There   is nothing like  it   to   surmount    difficulties   when     it  comes to railroad travel.  "When do we reach Denver?" asks  Larry, who begins to weary of this chase  against time-  "Quite  i-rant."  All of them glance over the document,  but Avis notices milord and the Chilian  "colonel "hurry away, though' she thinks  little of it at the time, believing^ they  are heading for the restaurant connected  with the central station.  "There's no disputing the fact that you  have authority to take all-of us or only  one member of the ' party to headquarters," says Jack, into whose mind a  thought has flashed, by means of which  he may bridge tho difficulty.  "Well?" drawls the officer, waiting.  "We are in a great hurry. I have hired  a special to take us to St. Louis ahead of  the regular train. It means much to me  to reach New York at a certain hour.  There are men on board this train who  strain every nerve to halt, us���������an English lord and a Chilian colonel. I was in  the affair at Valparaiso when the sailors  of the Baltimore were mobbed, and these  men have followed m6 all the way. You  understand the situation, I am sure.  Now," and his hand meets that oi" the  officer on the sly, transferring a little roll  of greenbacks, "so far as I can see, your  document really only calls for the presence of one of our number at headquarters to explain this charge."  "Now that you mention it, Doctor  Jack, I believe you are right," returns  the officer, as he glances again at the  warrant. This time looking through  different glasses.  Jack gives Kirke a meaning look.  Kirke, who has stood there eager to  knock the whole trio of officers over, if  need be, so anxious does he feel to be of  assistance.  "Iwill remain," he says, quickly.  "That settles it, then.    Follow   ou the  next train;" and  each,    in    turn,   shake  hands wit* him.  "The law is satisfied. Come. Kirke,"  remarks the astute detective, locking his  arm with that of Iii.s old friend. "Goodbye-Doctor Jack���������I've heard of you before  ���������and good luck follow you."  Jack  waits   no   longer.    Already   five  minutes have boon wasted by this episode,  and that is a considerable period of  time  when one travels   at   the   rate   of   sixty  miles an hour.    Ho picks up his valise.  "Come, Avis���������Larry!"  Tho conductor has waited.    When   the  detective first appeared   on the   scene   he  was filled with considerable apprehension  regarding the outcome of   the affair,  but  now his face fairly   beams  with satisfaction at witnessing   the   neat   manner in  which Doctor Jack has manipulated matters and baffled the intentions of his foes.  They pass around   several   trains   and  come upon the   special���������an   engine   and  Pullman sleeper.    Everything   seems   in  readiness for an immediate start.  It takes them just about a minute to  enter the car���������the conductor exchange a  few sentences. ' Perhaps their old friend  is giving the new man some hints that  it may pay him to serve the party whose  plethoric pocket-book pays the cost of the  special.  Now they move, leave the depot, and  start down the   track   like   a bird, with  jangling bell and an occasional toot from  the whistle.  ��������� Ii9-]3r3'_yid_Jack shake hands.    It   does  inclined to  assure you,  was left in  Apparently   all   is   plain sailing now,  and the world looks very 'bright   ahead.  When we have won   a   well-deserved victory, a sense   of   satisfaction > steals over  one that gives a very comfortable feeling.  - As before, our friends  have   the car to  themselves, with a conductor and porter,  the latter also serving   in the capacity of  steward, for luncheons- may be obtained  ,from a fairly well-stocked buffet.  This feeling of security and,'exultation  last just one hour with Larry.    Then his  dream of fancied triumph is rudely shattered,'  and   ho   realizes  'that   there are  others who can plot and"*plan  as well as  themselves.  They have just finished a lunch.   Avis  remains seated in   another section, while  the gentlemen repair to the smoking compartment.    Larry   will station himself at  the open window, where the smoke of his  cigarette may pass out   and   not   destroy  the flavor of his companioan's cigar.'  -   Jack has already   settled   himself, and  Larry is about due.    He waited to secure  a package of his favorites ,from his overcoat. '        -'    '  Presently in comes the dude���������the other  looks at   him- in   surprise.    Larry   has,  since   their   leaving   Denver, assumed a  very important and consequential  air, as-  though fortune has made him 'the benefactor of the  community���������the   fact   that  this pretty scheme originated in his brain  gives him something of a right   to   strut  about and appear taller than he really is.  *   Now, however,^ this look has   suddenly  faded.    Larry's glory   seems   to have departed.    One   could almost compare him  to a dog that comes sneaking home with  his tail between his legs. There.is a woebegone expression on his peculiar face.  Jack jumps to conclusions.  "Train hustles and swings   pretty lively, but I didn't know you   were   subject  to sea sickness, my boy," says   the   man  of iron nerve.       -  Larry gives him a reproachful look.  "Jack, dear boy, it's something   else,"  he says.  "Let's see if I can guess-it, then. D'ye  know, Larry,   you   looked, just,that'way  when the black-eyed Susan iri Alexandria  gave you the mitten.    Now,c if��������� we were  settled   in   a   city,    I'd   be,  think���������" ' -     ,  Larry grins now.  "No woman in the case,   I  JaC_.    The'  Chilian   beauty  Fwisco, you know."   ' <      ,  "Then, what the duse?    You  couldn't  have receiveda telegram of any kind?"  A shake of the head in the negative.  -"Dinner doesn't agree with you?" ''   .  "Jove! it was superb!"  "Ah! now I have it,i:������y boy. You have  made a terrible  discovery."    Larry   nods  eagerly.   ,"You   have   been   too fast, too  impulsive, and   consequently   run out of  cigarettes.    Have a weed?"  Larry holds up a package of the article  that are to his mind a   thing   of   beauty  and a joy forever,   at which Doctor Jack  shrugs his shoulders.  "Then Tgive it up, Larry."  That means he   would   like   to be enlightened as to the cause   of   the dude's  conduct. ,     /  "Look, my dear   boy,    have   you   ever  seen this article before?"  He holds  up   a   hat���������a   peculiar   hat,  with   something   of   the   military   look  about it���������a hat   which   once   seen could  never be forgotten.  Doctor Jack opens his eyes  wider than  their habit. He takes-the hat in his hand  and examines it carefully.  "A3 sure as I live   I   remember seeing  that hat upon the head of Colonel Garcia,  the Chilian.    Yes; here   is his   name on  the lining inside.    Now,   how  under the  sun could you have   -worn   that hat here  and I never noticed it?"  Larry claps it on his  head.    The   cha-  peau comes down to   his   ears, and Jack  laughs.  "I'd look widiculous,   wouldn't I now,  with such a head-piece   on?      Not   quite  such a fool, dear boy, if I do look it."  "But why did you bring it here?"  "Excuse me, Jack, I deny the   soft insinuation; I'm not in   the   hat  business  just at pwescnt."  "Eh? then who brought it   here?" sitting up, -with something   of   sudden interest. .--���������......  "That's what I want to know, by  Jove!" ,  "Where did you get it?"  1  "Pound it on   a   seat   in    the   car, or  wather hanging oii a hook."  Doctor Jack turns his eyes from the  military chapeau until they meet Larry's  gaze. .,  He does not seem disturbed in the  least. It is not his way to show his feelings? and yet the truth that surges  through his brain is of a character that  might alarm any one.  '' I remember now,''   he   says,   slowly,  "that when those men passed us  Colonel  Garcia   certainly   wore   his   hat,   for he  irc_ically bowed to Avis. Your finding it  here proves one   thing���������those  men   were  not heading for the restaurant."  Larry nods his head wisely.  '' That is so,'' he says.  "They got wind   of   our   plans���������������������������knew  we had a special here���������feared   lest   their  own plans   might   miscarry,    and   came  here to take adavntage of our forethought.  Perhaps they sighted us coming  through  the depot, and beat such   a hasty retreat  that our colonel forgot his head-gear."  Again Larry wags his head as though  he agrees; with his companion.  "The question that arises now is of  great importance to us. Did those men  m their hasty retreat give up their captured position here, or are they still  secreted about the car?"  It is, indeed, a serious thing to decide.  "A queer twick to play on us. Wonder  how they bwibed the conductor and por- i  ier?." ventures Larry, half.to himself-      !  .Doctor Jack sneers as ne puts nis nana  in his pocket, takes out a handful of  coins and jingles them together.  "That musiciwil*^accomplish wonderful things, my boy, astonishes things.  Most men have their price. You have  only to find out the size of their figure.  Remember, I don't say all men, but  there is more humbug about this world  than appears on the surface. I must say  I don't exactly fancy the looks of those  who have charge of our car.'' ,  "My mind, Jack.    The   darky is ugly,  and the conductor, well, I've  seen better  men in his line."  "Where could they-hide?"  "You know there's a state-room at the,  other end of the car.''  "Is the door, shut?"  "Yes, arid locked, for I   twied to open  it when I  went   that   way,   meaning to  smoke there."-  "That settles it When you see the porter ask him to open it. That the lady  would, perhaps, like to sse if as a boudoir. We hire,the car, and must be entitled to the whole of it." .  "There he passes now., I'll twy."-  Larry swoops out,' with a cigarette  between his teeth, and pounces upon the  porter, who has -just entered his little  cubby hole, which might be dubbed both  pantry and kitchen.  Presently he returns, with a look of  fierce import on his face... There is thunder on "that brow." Surely a storm  hovers in the distance.    -     "  "It's settled at last'!' he says.   -  "In what way?"  "Porter   is   vewy   sorry���������key   to   the  state-room' is lost, and he has   no means  of opening the door."  r) "The black rascal. It would serve him  right, if we tossed him from the car."  rAt this Larry presses a   hand   on   his  abdomen. "     ' . -  -"Pway don't Jack, dear boy. I admit  he is a twaitor but think of the lunch Ae  gave us. We have a good many hours to  spend in this car���������refwaincI beg of- you.  If there is.any tossing ' overboard, let it  be those chaps in tho ladies' boudoir,,  those uninvited guests who share the  benefits of our special twain."  ** "Larry, you're right. Let the darky  go'. We' must make sure0of our game, '  and ,then lay a plan' to > dislodge them.''  ' So, -.while they sit and smoke they talk  over many little schemes, all of which  have forjan object the confusion, of the  enemy. -   ' .. i  Now and then one - of' rthem takes a  glance into the car, too see that' Avis is  comfortable. She seems to be. reading'a,  novel and at peace, never dreaming that-  those who have given them so much  trouble are in thosame ' car as herself,  and, perhaps, even then watching her  back of the drawn curtains screening the  plate-glass window" between the car and  the state room.   ,  ' '  When Jack later on- communicates'the  startling intelligence to her,"* she is visibly  disturbed. The presence of her husband  reassures, her. He. haS ridden over all-  difficulties t>jus far, and they are - halfway across the continent, so it is fair to  presume that he will be able to keep up'  the good work. Her confidence in Jack  is sublime, and he is compelled to put  forth the best of his powers in order to  merit such faith.  Larry was not born a detective, but he  can show some energy in this l'ne.when  circumstances compel him to adopt it.  Before a great while he joins Doctor  Jack and his wife. What he has to tell  convinces the doctor that their ��������� suspicions are correct.  Larry declares he got a whiff of tobacco  smoke at an open window just back of  the state-room, which proves the latter  place to have   gentlemen   occupants.  Then, again, by placing his ear close  to the partition separating it from .the  ladies' end of the car he believes he hear_  the murmur of voices, and even caught  a Chilian oath, perhaps,- uttered when  Colonel vGarcia discovered the abominable  blunder he made in leaving his military  hat somewhere in the car. By the way,  Larry has hung it just where he found  it, so as to allay suspicions.  A while later he sees tlie porter take  the hat, put it under his coat, and walk  in the direction of the state-room, which  fact proves conclusively that he has been  in communication with the occupants.  Larry pokes his head a little way out  of the window, and watches to see what  happens.  He sees enough to prove it all true, for  the porter, leaning out, thrusts the military hat in at another opening connected with the locked state-room.  There is no longer any doubt, and they  can settle upon the course to be pursued.  Jack is indignant. He has hired this  train at heavy expense, and no one to  whom he objects has any right to ride on  it.'; V - .'-.:'".'���������'  So when he sees the conductor again,  he follows him to the smoking compartment.  "A few words with you, my friend,"  he says.  The man in blue uniform looks uneasy, but takes a seat as Jack motions.  Already has the latter analyzed his features���������the conductor is not exactly what  Larry pictured him, although Jack does  not wholly fancy him.  "You   understand that   I   charter this  train���������that my   money   pay   for the ser  vices of every nwii   connected   with it?"  says Jack.  "Certainly, sir," comes the ready reply.  "Ah! then   tell   me   why you dare to  carry other passengers���������parties   who   are  intensely   disagreeable   to   me���������on   this  .

I could kick myself now for  being such a dolt."    r c    ,  "Never mind.' Tell me how it came  about."  . "As simple as apple pie.

Up come two gentlemen���������"    ,  ' ���������  "One dark and with a military look;  the other plainly English?" interrupts  Jack. ' '  "Yes. This, English fellow talis me a  cock-and-bull story, and like a fool I  believe it. He says ho is a detective from  Scotland Yard, in England, fallowing  his' man around the ' world; that you  have stolen a million and run away with  a duchess. I ��������� agreed to conceal them on  board, since he said ho would pay for the  special in case'you failed to turn up  Under these circumstances  Will pardon my   mistake,,  and believe   that   I  acted  **ny judgment."  What can Jack do but forgive him.  "Then you will act with me, now?"," ���������  ' "The first thing .to be done, then, is to  get,rid of.these interlopers."  The conductor rises to his feet.  "Stay, what would you do?"  "Stop at the next   station,   and   force  them to alight." '        v "���������  The doctor ponders a little. '  He is disposed to be   lenient,   but''the  knowledge that these men, are1 desperate  in their endeavor to   ruin   him   hardens  his heart to a degree.

They   are . .  still some hours from ,the   destination' of..  the special.    Their progress has been" exceedingly   rapid,   as   all -regular'trains  must give way before them. -  '   Just as they -finish' their ' supper' ���������the '<,'?'  train slows up, and they see many lights.  Evidently in response   to  a, signal"from"-;',  tbe conductor the special means to stop a L  few minutes, as he is   subject   to   orders-' >?."-  as well as the official of a regular 'train.

This   peculiar   whirl   across   the con-   '  tinent is rather demoralizing   to   regular/  habits, especially   when   they  are racing'  against time, and have such   determined .^  ���������  foes at hand; but   they   arc   Americans,       ,  and can put up with many   things   that   ..  would completely weary out some people.

It would be difficult, indeed, to do justice to the expression that marks Doctor Jack's face when he makes this demand. Men more valiant than the Pullman conductor have felt it before, and  cringed. He speaks in a low tone, but  there is something in his voice, with the  glance from his eyes, that emphasizes  the words.  The man turns red in the face. He  cannot look Jack in the eye for a minute.  "I am positive you have been deceived  by those men. To set you right, my  friend, I am going to tell you something  of the history of this chase across the  continent."  train  aback.  "No, no, fully fifteen^ minutes yet,  Doctor Jack; but you made   a mistake."  "How so?" (j.-'      -  "In not letting me put those - men off  at the little station in the afternoon."  "Eh? what's this?" exclaims Larry. "'  "They're here, sir."  "Well, that's odd.    How   do   you   tuS-~  count for it?"  The Pullman conductor, shakes his*  head.  "I am in the dark. I examined both  platforms several times . while we ran,  and there were ho signs of them."    '       '-*  "By Jove! wode in on top of the car.  What a beastly wide to take," remarks  the little man.  At this the employee smiles.  "I hardly think that was the case,  though it might be possible. There are  other ways in which they could have  come. Por instance, they may have stolen .  a ride on the cow-catcher of the locomotive, or even entered the engine, deceiving the men just   as thej- did nie."  "That is a more plausible theory.  How they reached St. Louis would probably form the base of an admirable story;  but at present I am more concerned in  considering how I shall gain New York.  Will you show us the eastern train, conductor?"  "With pleasure, Doctor 'Jack. This  way, sir." ,  He acts as if anxious to please." Perhaps he desires to make them forget that  he helped their enemies part of the way.  on the road. The veteran traveler hardly  knows what to think. It may be this  man has played a double game, and after  all remained faithful to the party who-  first "saw" him with a fat bribe..

Col. Henry, committing,  suicide, .admitted that on,e docu-  ment on trial, was a fprgery. The  ,'Emperor of .Germany declares that'  papers giye,n in evidence, purporting to connect Qermany with the  .transaction are iorgeries. 3,t, there-  ������9^ loo^s like a h������ge .com? piracy  Among army oncers to ruin Drey-  iij.8, and it ;is probable no .treason  ���������^as committed by any person. In  other words no army secrets have  ibeen sold to any foreign power; but  for Boi&e reason the charge has  jbeen made and bolstered up by forged documents in.order to destroy ^he  officer now on his way to France to  lace his accusers, before, let us hope,  a public and impartial tribunal.  H^uch credit is due to Zola for  creating a public opinion powerful  .enough -to sucessfuily demand a  pew trial, and still more credit is  flue to the noble wife of Dreyfus,  who h?.s stood by him through evil  Report, covering him with a mantle  pt love, proclaiming his innocence  5-yith paf^ionate an,d vehement elo-  fmensq which has stirred the hearts  ^f her c.puntrymen to an insiajtance  pi} fair pl?.y.
