PIRATE'S BURIED LOOT  ENGLISH   EXPEDITION   MAKES  FRUITLESS SEARCH FOR IT.  Secret of Itt Whereabouts Disclosed by  Dying Man to No Purposa���������Account  of the Expedition���������-The Pirates'  Flight���������Treasure Syndicate Lands  June 30 on Island But Did Not Find  Expected Treasure.  The yacht Alkelda, commanded by  tier owner, Capt. Gage, has just returned to Gibraltar from a treasure hunt  In tho Island of Alboran, ln the Mediterranean, opposite Melilla. The search  arose from a statement made to T. C.  ���������MeMichael, of Brighton, by an old army  tnan, who had a secret confided to him  when he was a boy to the effect that  treasure worth $5,000,000 was buried by  -pirates on the island in 1832. Nothing,  tiowever, waa found,  j Capt Gage and Mr. McM-ichael were  accompanied by Col. Lewis, Capt. English, R. N.; Capt. Chaplain, H. A.; the  Hon. Alister Campbell and Messrs. J. E.  Browne and E. S. Hopkinson.  Account of the Expedition.  ���������   The following account of the expedition Is supplied by a reporter who accompanied it:  "On June 10 the schooner Alkelda, R.  Y. S., 140 tons, owned by Capt. Gage,  ���������ailed from Plymouth for Gibraltar.  "We had a picked crew of six Cornish  fishermen and a young mate irom the  mercantile marine, and we were commanded by Capt. Long, who had been  many years In the service of Capt. Gage,  A cook, two stewards aiid a forecastle  band completed the ship's company, and  the fortunate guests who had been invited for the cruise were Col. D. T,  L-ewls, Capt. English and Capt. A.  Campbell.  "Tho object of the expedition was a  treasure hunt, and the information we  depended on was, briefly, this:  "A few years ago a friend who owned house property in Yorkshire had to  press one of his tenants for rent.  "This tenant, a retired army captain who was getting on in years, told  the proprietor that in his soldiering  ���������dayis he had a private named Robinson  as servant, and that in return for some  kindness Robinson had told hhn that  when quite a lad he had gone to sea and  served as cabin boy in a merchant ship  called the Young Constitution. He soon  foundjmt that the ship was a pirate,  and was carrying on "Its nefarious busf  ness off the coast of Jamaica.  The Pirates' Flight.  "In 1832, he said, British men-of-war  were on the lookout for the Young  Constitution, and being laden with  Jewels and gold to the value of fully a  million pounds, the captain decided to  leave the West Indies and made a  course Cor the Mediterranean.  "They were chased by two British  frigates, but, being favored with   fair  winds  safely through  "Here the pirate captain lost his  bearings. He had no charts of the Mediterranean, and   no   knowledge  of the  mg piace just as aescrlbed In Robin-  eon's account.  rtBut now the Island waa no longeT  uninhabited. There was a lighthouse  and a large barrack-like building round  its base, and we saw seven men and  several boys and women. |  "Two boats put off. The men, who  were of very superior class, offered us  some rock cod for sale, while we offer-  .ed them Spanish wine, and stuffed the  boys with biscuits, bread and butter,  and fruit. After breakfast we all landed in the cutter. j  "Two of the most diplomatic, accompanied by the interpreter, went up to  the  lighthouse, and gave a    plausible  reason for our arrival with picks ana  shovels and iron bars, while the rest of  the party began to prospect for the  place where the treasure was hidden.  "We soon found a second 'landing  place which was more accurately at  the southeastern part of the islanui, but  not at the corner. Here was a natural  jetty of flat rock, with almost a couple  of fathoms of water, and a steep path  up the face of the cliff. An old wire  rope was suspended from the top.  "The general idea was that this was  the natural landing that had esisted  when the island was uninhabited, and  that the one which we had used was  made when the lighthouse was built.  "However, we tried at every conceivable olace to find soil or sand dee������  enougn to bury treasure in'/and nownere  could we find a spot. The soil was not  more than three feet thick, ana then  we came on solid rock. For three days  we dug a cut through sand heaps, and  probed with pointed iron rods, but all  to no purpose, and on July 2 a gale  sprang up, and we had to sail away, but  not before every member of the expedition was satisfied that there was no  treasure in Alboran."  ENGLAND'S LOST LAND.  The Heltlnr Co������������t������ Getting to Ba ���������  Serloua Queitlon.  Dr. Andrew Wilson writes: "Year by  year the subject of the lost land of  Britain grows in importance. If. as the  geologists tell us, we lose annually a  mass of land equal to Gibraltar, it may  be an easy matter to, calculate the period it will take well nigh to annihilate certain areas of our country.  We are told that on our east coast  aloue there is swept away every year  a land mass equal to the Island of j Everbody doas  Helgoland. The rate at wbich erosion j men.  takes place depends on the nature of  the materials on which the waves  wreak their force and vengeance. When  the materials consist of soft clay, gravel and chalk the rate of sea Inroad Is  very rapid. Where we find hard rocks  the rate of wear.'and tear is appreciably lessened. The sea, moreover, In  dealing w}0 even hard recks has a  very distinct plan of Invasion. It will  underrate a cliff, for example. It  will use the detached bowlders as a  HEALTH THE PRIZE  MOST SOUGHT FOR  And to Thousands of Weak, Sickly People  Health Is Restored by  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.  You want to be strong and healthy.  Women as    well    as  There was a time when women prided themeelves on looking pale and  delicate.  I That day has passed.  | To-day robust health is tho ideal.  j A well-rounded form, firm flesh and  I muscles, strength and elasticity of  J movement and a healthful glow to the  i complexion���������these are what all are  . s.riving for, and many are attaining  it'ieir object by the use of Dr. Chase's  ��������� N*exve Food.  When the food which is taken into  kind of marine artillery,  the  waves j the body fails to supply the required  WHY WE DO SOME THINGS.  Certainly Not Because We Look Prfetty  When We Do Them.  A man does not take oft his hat to a  lady because he looks nicer without it.  The instance of bald men would be  alone' sufficient to upset such an explanation.  He, does it because you must positively do something when you meet a'  lady or your whole civilization goes to  pieces, and taking off your hat is easier  than taking off your necktie or lying  face downward on the pavement. j  The primary point is that you must  do something, not that you must do  something beautiful. And as long as  cultivated people cannot grasp this*  fact they will find their efforts quite  futile jndealing with what they often  consider   the "dullness" of���������Tfie" middle  seizing them and hurling them against  the rocks. The undermined cliff topples over and falls, and the waves  play around the detached mass until it  worn away. Sometimes the attack assumes a different guise. The waves  beat against a cliff and tunnel It  through, leaving thus a natural archway such as the locality around Torquay Illustrates very aptly. Then in  time the top of the arch falls in, and  the outer side appears as the lone sea  stack or pillar. This In due season Is  also worn down by degrees until It appears as the tangle covered rock over  which the waves are ever breaking.  "To be convinced of the Immense  loss of iand for which the sea is responsible one has only to consult geo- j  logical works and ordnance survey records. Take the case of Yorkshire, for  example. Professor Phillips said that  the rate at which the cliffs recede from  Bridlington to Spurn, a distance of  thirty-six miles, equals on an average  two yards and a quarter yearly. Estimated for thirty-six miles of coast,  the total amount of loss is about thirty  acres.   Further   calculated,   the  amount of rich, life-sustaining blood  external assistance must be sought  until the system is fully restored.  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food supplies  the very material which goes directly  to the formation of blood, pure,  health-giving blood.  Mrs. W. R. Sutherland, St. Andrews,  Man.,    writes���������"In    February,  1903 I was stricken with paralysis,  fell helplessly to tho floor and had to  be carried to bed. The doctor pronounced it a bad case as I had no  power in my tongue and left leg. I  remained in that condition for six  months without obtaining benefit  from the doctor's prescriptions or  other medicines.  "My husband advised me to try  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food and by the  use of this treatment all symptoms of  the disease disappeared. I can now  talk plainly, my leg is all right and  I can do my housework. How grateful I am to be cured by so wonderful  a remedy.''  .Weakness, irregularities, headaches,  dizzy spells, feelings of fatigue, discouragement and despondency soon  disappear before the splendid restorative influence of this great medicine,  and for this reason Dr. Chase's Nerve  Food has become so popular; 50 cents  a box, at all dealers, or Edmanson,  Bates & Co., Toronto.

LEWIS  Copyright, 1906, bu M. M. Cunningham  It may have been that in the hurry  and confusion of getting away from  London the purser of the steamship  Bramble got things mixed up. He  knew that he had among the passengers no less than three fond American  mammas who had been trailing oyer  Europe with marriageable daughters  and were coming borne witb disappointed looks, and he hoped to give one  of tbem a last chance.  However it happened, It was known  among the passengers even before the  Bramble left ber dock tbat a great  man was on board. It was Mr. Julius  Smltoers of the Chicago beef trust,  and bis fortune was variously estimated at from ten to fifty million dollars.  There were men who at first denied  tbat Smlthers was a member of the  trust They could name over every  packer who had ever been mentioned  In the papers, and the name of Smlthers didn't figure In tbe list. Tbey were  about to denounce him as an impostor  (when a red headed man suggested that  Smlthers, might have come Into the  trust on a merger pf some sort. There  were mergers merging all the time,:  and ������ what if the beef trust and the  tombstone trust had consolidated their  Interests? v  Tbe thing was as good as settled ln  an hour. Mr. Smlthers was a man of  forty. He was rather rotund and bald  headed. He bad just the faintest inclination to be flashy. Mr. Smitbers was  very democratic/or a man worth untold millions. He made acquaintances  rapidly, and the steamer had not made  a hundred miles to the westward when  he started a, game of poker In the  smoking room and had for companions  a drummer,, a cattleman, a ward politician and the inventor of the sausage  stuffing machine. He was given a seat  at the captain's table, It was after-  iward said tbat this was a mistake and  **l WILL SEB TOTJ AGAIN.  IK PACT, I WANT  TO BBS SOU AGAIN."  that ho bad takon tho place assigned to  ������ bishop. If ho hadn't beon worth millions upon millions bis table manners  would havo been open to criticism.  Thero was much to overlook in Mr.  Julius Smlthers or thoro would have  beon undor any othor circumstances.  He was about the only one wbo didn't  know It, and be was happy.  Within forty-eight hours those mammal wore laying wires. If thoy bad  fa Hod to pick up a lord, a dukt or  count abroad It wasn't tucb a bad  thing to fall back on ont of tbe "Its" of  tbo beef trust, Mr. Smitbers could not  only restort tbt family beefsteaks to  tbt old tlmt prices, but be bad millions  to spond in castles, yachts and diamonds, These mammas bad malt  frltndi aboard, wbo were instructed to  obtain Information about Smitbers. Ht  mot tbem halfway and more,  "Say, you take my word for It, It's  golus l*> he Use hlggv i ��������� -rctw of any  thing for the last ton yonrs," wns his  sanguine reply. "You'll hoar all about  It within a month after wt land. Monty In It? Well, I guess yes. I expect to  make bonfires of fifty-dollar bills."  He, was talking about thc merger, ef  course. His replies were reported to  tlio waiting mammas, and tbey were  Introduced. Tbt said introductions  came about in a careless way, as If by  more accident  Tbe mammas found him hearty abd  jovial in bit speech. He didn't always  follow the rules of grammar, ond he  sometimes caught himself just in tlmo  to bit* off a cuss word, but a man may  bt forgiven much If bt can draw bit  check for several millions.  It was dtcided tn all three casta tbat  Mr. ftmlthore would do aa a member ef  lb* fajoUr. When bt became a son-in-  law they could polish bim up a bit and  gradually reduce the size of his two  watch chains and his diamond pin.  Then the daughters were introduced.  This was also carelessly accomplished  ���������that is, while Mr. Smithers was making Intervals between his poker games  In order to get a breath of ocean air he  would suddenly find some one in his  path and be compelled to pause and be  Introduced. He wasn't a man with a  grain of suspicion in his composition,  and he was the soul of good nature.  He gave up his poker to sit down and  make himself agreeable to Miss Blank.  "You may have beard of the beet  trust?" was bis way of starting off th&  conversation. "It's going to be the  biggest thing the United States ever  heard of. My, but that was a great  thought of mine, and I can't help but  feel rather swelled up over It! No  more bust-ups; no. more walking the  railroad tracks for *Juli*j Smitbers,  Esq."  The girls elevated their eyebrows In  surprise and perplexity. Tbey had never heard any merger talk before, and  It was as Greek to tbem. They reported to their respective mammas tbat  Mr. Smlthers didn't get into college  the day be called, tbat his waya were  rather ranmiar, that he evidently  hadn't attended over a thousand high  teas and grand receptions and that it  would take a carload of sandpaper to  rub bim down, but be had a good heart  as a foundation to build on. If his conversation wasn't exactly up to the  notch the wlndup was intended to  draw applause. He always finished by  saying:  *T shall now have to ask you to excuse me, but I will see you again. In  fact I want to see you again. I think  I can figure lt out before we arrive at  Sandy Hook to offer you tbe best thing  of the season, but keep that to yourself."  "Mamma, what did he mean by  that?" asked the respective daughters  of their respective mothers.  "Why, child, how silly you are!" was  the reply. "What could he mean but  one thing?"  "But we have known him such a little while."  ,  "You haven't got to know a millionaire over a day or two. They are different from other men. They have the  -cash."   :*������������������ .���������������������������-���������'-;���������_ __^___^_u_^_______,  THE SUNDIAL.  It Should Be Marked For the latitude In Which It Stands.  In an old shop in lower New York a  man keeps up his trade of dial making.  The dials, square, octagonal or circular, are hahd chased. They do not receive a high polish, and any accidental effect of weather stain or other  "tone of time" is carefully preserved  if not skillfully added. These dials,  fitted with the gnomon, or stylus, are  then artfully slipped into the show  windows of uptown curiosity shops  among��������� a selected debris of Sheffield  plate, prism candlesticks, inlaid tea  caddies and old blue plates.  A visitor to one of these shops asked;  "How old is tiat brass dial over there?  It's all hand work, isn't It?"  "It's all band work/' said the proprietor, whom we will call Truthful James.  "I can testify to that, for I know tbe  man whose hands made it. It's about  a month old, If you want to know.  You're like lots of other people���������you  want an old Scotch".or English dial.  Don't you know it would be useless, If  you found it, for practical purposes?  Excuse me, but haven't ybu ever studied geography and heard Of latitude?  A dial ought to be marked out scientifically for tbe exact latitude in which  it is to be set up. So unless you strike  the same parallel ln the states that the  dial left in England it will tell lies  from morning till night. You'd'be surprised how many people pick up a dial  that strikes their fancy which perhaps  stood in tbe garden of an old Virginia  estate, intending fo hurry it off to the  big grounds of some place, in Minnesota; or they'll snatch at some quaint  dial from New England, with the idea  of rigging it up in Texas.  "More people would make the same  blunder, except that many haven't  caught on to dials. Too bad. Nothing  is prettier than a simple dial at the  crossways of garden paths, or by a  fountain or on a terrace or at the entrance of a pergola or near a rustic  seat or arbor. You don't have to ��������� hire  a head gardener and two assistants-to  keep a sundial. Marble platforms and  pedestals are very grand, but unless  you're running ��������� a big Italian garden  with clipped hedges and yews and  statues something simple is what you  want. The dial will keep just as good  THE SILO IS "IT."  There were men aboard looking to  get into a good thing on the ground  floor. They knew that the beef trust  was a good thing. Tbey threw out  hints to Mr. Smithers, but be laughed  and shook bis bead and replied:  "Not yet, my boy. I've got the dough  to start It off, and I want all the  plunks there are in It See me next  season."  "Will beef go up?"  "Thunder, no! We expect to knock  the price down to 15 cents a pound."  "Then how will you make your millions out of lt?"  Mr. Smlthers didn't make any direct  answer. He simply winked a long,  quivering wink with his left eye and  conveyed the impression that tbere  was a coon up tbe tree. Tbe merger  man enjoyed the sunshine of flattery  and envy and toadyism for five or six  days.  Then Sandy Hook was sighted one  morning, and he announced to the  threo scheming mammas that he wanted to bold cohverso with their three  daughters. It was to bo private converse. There was agitation, There was  perturbation. Thoro were consultations. Mr. Smlthers selected a corner  of the music room, and to that spot tho  victims wero led In turn. The conversation was about tho same in each Instance.  "My dear girl," began Mr. Smitbers,  wltb paternal blandncsB, "I told you I  ���������bad a good thing on hand and would  try to arrange to make you an offor. I  am about to do so. Ybu have never bad  any experlenco on tbe stage, but you  are a mlgbty good looker."  "Sir!" demanded tbt maiden ti ibo  retreated a step.  "Ob, I shan't ask you to dress unbecomingly.

Tbat waa foi*  lowed by a growl After tbe growl  came crlea of "Kill blml Throw bim  overboard I" There was a rush of feet  along tbt decks, but Mr. Smlthers was  pulled Into tbe purser's room and saved  from total wreckage, and wbon tbe  steamer reached ber dock tbo captain  lent bim a pair of false red whiskers to  disguise himself and escape tbe mob.  time," once it's engraved right, If "it's  mounted on a tree stump, with ivy  planted round it, or on a bowlder, or on  the coping of an old disused well; or on  a column of cobbles mortared together,  or on top of the old bitching post that  the family doesn't use in these automobile days, but doesn't want to root  up and throw away.  "You'd be surprised at the ingenuity  of some people," said Truthful James,  wbo himself seemed of ingenious bent.  "I mean people who haven't much  money to spend and are fond of tbelr  own old stuff for association's sake.  They're the ones who get effects with  a piece of junk, a lump of sentiment  and a pocket of small change that can't  be bought with a blank check. I've  known people who used an old millstone to set tbe dial on, or wbo laid a  slab over an old stone garden urn, or  who saved the capitals from pillars on  a house being torn down, or wbo even  rigged up a standard from tho bricks  of a chimney on an old homestead that  had meant a lot to them. One family  made a sort of calm out of a geology  collection some ancestor had formed.  Another took a flag pole for tbe gnomon  and laid out a dial with pebbles in the  grass around the pole.  "No, It doesn't require any skill to set  up tbe dial. Get the noon mark for the  gnomon on several days, nick it on tbe  slab and tben set the dial lu a bed of  cement.  Thero you are."  ������������������iTinsr thm Problem of Stalk Haa.  dllnar and High Priced Land, j  Stalk fed stock is inferior to silage  fed stock, and the heavy stalks accumu-1  lating ln the barn and yards are hard*  to handle.   It Is a difficult matter to  get them upon the field, and after they  are there they hinder cultivation.   The  part of the stalk below tbe ear is said ;  to represent 50 per cent of the nutri- j  tion of the fodder.   If that is allowed j  to become ripe and woody you lose 50  per cent of the feed value.   This half  of the stalk Increases the difficulty in'  handling at least 100 per cent    All  these problems are solved by the silo, j  It takes all the corn, cuts it up at a !  time wben it is full of rich feed and '  preserves  it In prime  condition  for  winter use.   The manure from silage'  fed stock is preferable to that of stalk  fed stock because it is much easier to  bandle and can be applied to tbe land  more economically.  The silo is "it"  On Hia* Priced Land.  When farm land sells for anything  above $65 an acre it is something of a  problem how to make the average crop  pay for It The beef farmer is up *  against lt good and bard, and tbe dairy '  farmer has no snap unless he attends '  to business and is posted. If a man is  going to keep one cow to every four  acres and if he has to pay $80 an acre  for the land that cow must make him  $19.20 above expenses in order to pay  the Interest on the money invested in  the land alone. This does not allow  anything for improvements, Interest on  the price of the cow or. labor. The  solution of the whole problem lies in  silos and silage. The forty acre farm  with a silo Is worth just as much as  the eighty acre farm without one when  lt comes to earning capacity. If a man  depends upon hay, corn and pasture  alone he can keep only aboat one-third  as much stock as if silage, entered his  ration. The silo is the solution of profits from high priced land, declares  KimbJall's Dairy Farmer in conclusion  to the foregoing appreciation of the  silo. It gives more feed for less money;  and the feed is harvested at a more  desirable time.  Exact Knowledge.  It will pay^very man to weigh the  "miik~d?"e,vTrF^ow~aF'"evel^-mnk"Ingr  Records show; that there are whole  herds that do' not, return! the cost of  feed. Weighing pays because only a  definite record of tbe best cows shows  whether each one Is doing her best or  for some reason Is going wrong. The  next best scheme is a week's tests every seventh week. This will give near  the actual yield. You cancot afford to  weigh the feed for each cow, but there  should be a record of the total amount  of food that goes Into the herd*���������Professor H. E. Van Norman.  At Sen.

For several years past  the   practicability of closing the Strait ot Bene  o f������1e has been much discussed by traits-  ,   attantio shipping interests.    The most  pktlful engineers In the country are of  ~_/WlntPh^h^_Jhe2K2l2SLls a ���������c'e*sibte  pete. The Belle Me route i-~da"rrger=���������  pne te navigation, and in the spring of  fhe rest, makes a passage-way for Immense fields of ice that drift down  frith tbe tide from the northern seas,  . as a result of which the Quit Is blocked  tor WMk* and huge icebergs And their  way into the path of ooean liners south  -of Batole Island.  ?be Strait le not very deep, but the  current rushes through It with f_ai������.'u-l  vetoelty.     Oji   either   side   are   high  fnauntalns of bare and Bolld rook, and  In these we have an abundance of malarial with which to bridge this passage of water, which Is only about nine  miles wlda at the narrowest part.  By contract labor, the work would,  . M already stated,  cost  an  enormous  , amount of njoney;   by   convlot  labor  It would be comparatively umall.  The  -suggestion, then, is to make Labrador  *. penal colony tor Canada, and utilize  prison labor In tilling the fltraJt of  Belle Isle.    The colony might be divided Into two camps, one on the Que-  *p** and the other on the Newfound*  fand side,    The filling could tftus be  folaa on from botb sides.  Moral gffaot Would Bt Qoed.  With an endless haulage system, If  necessary, running Into the quarrlos  and with the large force of convicts  Sent there from time to time to do  penance for thoir crimes, this gtgantlo  pleea of work would bo accomplished  Jn tbe oourse of not very many yoars,  and at perhaps lets cost than It would  take to maintain the samo force ln tho  various penitentiaries. Honest labor  would be glvtm an untrammelled control of our tyarkpts.  Tbove can bt little doubt that tho  (Institutions of this Canadian Siberia  would have a salutary effect upon tho  morals of the criminally mlndod  throughout Canada. Pour years, or  whatever tbe period might bo, of hard  taibor }n Labrador would carry greater conviction than a similar sentcmrn  lo Dorohentfr, pt.

It was  j impossible in some districts to procure  ��������� mail carriers.      Appalling stories are  i still related of the fearless ferocity of  ithese beast    The railway was build-  i -ing at Kiu.   Several coolies had been  ' carried off by an old lion, and one night  t Ryall. an English engineer Who    had  j seen much service in India, decided to  I sit  up  ln  a railway  carriage  on  the  chance of getting a shot.     With* him  w*������re Mr.  H-selyier,  the German  consul, and an Italian, Parent!.   The night )  w&s'"'darl{,  with  but  little moon,  and  after midnight Ryall commented upon  the brightness of the fireflies near the  carriage andalso remarked that he had/  seen a rat repeatedly cross and recross  a spot where the steel rail glinted tn  the mo������nlight. -      .      ���������  "But the supposod fireflies were the  luminous eyes pf the lion they waited  for, and the rat was ttio, slow movement of his tail. If Ryall had recognized this, his life would have been  saved. Tired of their vigil toward the  morning, the three watchers went to  6leep, Huebner on the .upper berth, tho  two others -bolow. The can Inge was  the ordinary sleeping c* rriage familiar  to Indian travelers, with a lavatory beyond the couches. An hour had. passed,  the party was asleep, when the lion  Jumped into the carrhxgo and seized  Ryall, While In a moment-Parenti had  slipped into the lavatory nnd closed the  door.

CHAPTER VII.  Oscar Glcndciming paused and  looked anxiously over his shoulder.  There was certainly no mistake; some  one was following him; the party  that had followed him through each  successive corridor had now doubled  his pace.  The thoroughfare was crowded,  but not even mingling with the  throng dispelled his fears.  As he hurried along the street, as  quickly as he could push his way  through the dense throng, his attention was attracted at the first cor-  *i������i.

"What is your price for that animal?" he asked,  nervously.   ,/  "Two hundred and fifty dollars.  pir," returned the man. "He's worth  twice that sum, but the trouble is  I'm in a tight place; I must sell him;  3���������"  "Here's your money," cut in Glendenning, counting' out the bank-notes  and thrusting them into the man's  Hand.  An instant more and he was in lhe  saddle.  Glancing back over the heads of  the swaying crowd,, Glendenning saw  that he had indeed' great cause to  fear; it was indeed the same oil'icer  that had been pointed out to him  while he was sitting on the balcony.  He was tearing madly down lhe  street, waving a paper in his hand,  and gesticulating wildly as he pointed toward Glendenning. .  ii "He will seize upon the first horse  that he can lay his hands on, and"  be, after me," he thought, turning  pale to the lips; "but," and here the  hard j, lines tightened about his  mouth, "if he and I meet, there will  ���������be but one of us left to tell of the  encounter."  On, on rode Oscar Glendenning  with the speed'of tho wind, taking  little heed of which direction ho  went;  that  mattered very  littlo    to  Him.  *      ������      ������     ., #      ������       #     , ������  The daisy-strewn,valley road near  Hempden village, in,the heart of  Louisiana, was one of the prettiest  .spots the golden sunshine ever fell  upon.  Who could have imagined that pre  tho setting of the sun on the lovely  summer day on which our story opens, it would be the scene of n tragedy, and the modest violets and nodding wild-flowers would bo stained  with a human being's life-blood.  The only sound that broko tho  fdillness of the drowsy noon hoi.r  was the hum nf tho mstless bees, tho  murmuring breeze stirring the leaves  of tho grand old magnolia boughs,  iind tho far-off sound of a horse's  hoofs ndown tlio whito winding  stretch of country road.  Nearer dash horso and rider swiftly ns tho wind, so near that ono  could see now thnt it. wbh Oscar  Glendenning; nnd ns the dense cloud  of dust cleared awny, ono could also  nee that the animal wns covered  with fonnv'.vnd tho hnndsomo, desperate fnco of tho hatless horseman  was white and haggard with long  riding. Uo hnd boon over eighteen  hours in tho .saddle.  At the fork of the road he suddonly drew rein.  "Well, old boy," h<? cried, honrso-  Jy. patting the quivering horso'*  neck with his whlto hnnd, "which  rond do wo tako, I wonder?"  The sign-boards that pointed either  way woro old nnd weather-beaten,  nnd tlje names they '���������originally bore  were entirely obliterated; but on tho  bonrd which pointed to tho left,  somo mlsehlevoulsy Inclined pernor!  >iiid cut tho words, "The Way to Do*  ���������tructton."  The handsome horseman emllod  grimly nn his keen bluo eyes fell upon thia. "We will tnke the road to  'dpstructlon,'" he muttered; "wo'vo  gone quite a little wny on It already, speaking literally. It's tho  broadest road, looks as If it was  tho most traveled, and must lend to  jleliipUeii. ins *.���������������* '���������������'��������������� '���������������->���������" vhv.������  ���������nt* hisvf left ro far behind us hnve  discovered���������"  The rest of tho sentence was never  finished, lor the horso had suddenly  stopped short, shied sideways in thu  ntmoit terror, nnd would hnvo  wheeled nbout but tor ihe strong,  determined hnnd that, held the reins  and the quirk succession of blows  that fell on his quivering flnnk.  Again thc horse shot forward, nnd  mile after mile was Mittched quicklv  brfilnd horse nnd  rider.  "We are on the. wrong mod, 1 nm  sfrnid '* n������������t'**re������l Olend������'iinln������r. again  drawing rein sharply. * I hi* musi b������  the swamp road; yes, nnd. by the  (ternal, wc are w<ll into the quagmire."

He loosened his hold on the reins ( -|vp'ak voice,  and turned half around in the saddle an instant. That action was fatal; feeling himself free from all restraint, the animal suddenly wheeled  about, and in a twinkling the horseman was unseated and iiung among  the bushes, face downward, in %he.  long swamp-grass, and the horse. Ira*  as the wind, was lost to sight thu  next moment.  Glendenning attempted to struggle  to his feet, then a groan of agony  broke from his lips, and he fell back  half fainting among the long, poisonous grasses and tufted weeds.  "I am done for now!" he cried;,  "my right ankle and my left arm  must be broken���������they are broken.  Will they overtake me, lying here  helpless and at their mercy? No, no;  I will kill myself first! They shall  never take me alive; I swear it!"  He sunk back with a groan, weak  from hoiTible pain and the loss of  blood that flowed from a deep gash  in his  arm.  "I am dying!", he cried. "If I call  will any one hear, I wonder. Is ther*������  no human being near in this wilde>-  ness of swamp?" He tried to call  out, but the cry died away on his  lips in a terrible moan of pain. "To  die like this!" he cried; "I who have  lived a life that a prince of the royal blood might have envied. To flee  from the great metropolis only to  find death in a Louisiana swamp! It  is  too   horrible!"  For an instant his great pain overcame him, and he. lay panting and  almost lifeless, with' the scorching  sun pouring on his upturned face,  while the wild-flowers , and tender  grasses about him were dyed with  xinr~cnmmm~ti"dw~i"hwt^  his wound.  Oscar Glendenning was fair and  handsome even with that awful pallor on his face. His eyes' were large  and blue, and the hair that waved  back from his broad white brow was  thick, brown a������d luxuriant, and tho  drooping brown moustache with its  curling ends half revealed and half  concealed a mobile mouth.  The pain of his wounds grew more  intense'as the hours wore on. Ho  could not pray���������he had forgotten  how to frame such sacred Words���������but  he cried out to Heaven to kill him  then and thero, and not tako this  Blow way of torturing him to madness.

There are seven "virgins' garlands"  Ctlll in existence in Minsterley church,  Salop, the first of them bearing the  date 1554 and the last 1751.  They consist of silk ribbons and  paper, ball shaped, and are covered  with rosettes, the inside center of the  cane or wire frame supporting a pair  of paper gloves. The; represent a romantic custom of very ancient origin  and are sacred to the memory of girls  who while betrothed in their youth  lost their intended husbands by death,  yet remained true to their first loves.  Each maiden designed her own garland, and at her death this simple emblem was borne before her by the village lapses, the white gloves being afterward added. After the obsequies  .these garlands were suspended In the  village church on a rod bearing at Its  extremity a heart ln the shape of an  escutcheon, upon which the initials and  date were inscribed. These were originally fixed above the maiden's pew.  Some of the earliest and forgotten  garlands were composed of real flowers, but later the covered hoops described were substituted.  There Is a passing allusion to this  "simple memorial of the early dead"  ln "Hamlet." "Yet here she is allowed  her virgin crants," "crants" signifying  garlands.���������London Graphic.

As I went  to the door with him I heard the telephone bell ring violently. When I answered the call I was surprised to be  told that there was a lively blaze under  my desk, which had been seen by a  bright office boy In the opposite building.

Warman, on the Canadian Northern,  ls an instance which comes to mind at  the moment. One day it was just  prairie; next day there were a dozen  stores, numerous tents, and work had  begun on a school and a churoh. But  it has remained for one little colony  of Michlganders, who have settled in  Alberta, to give to their town.a name  which Is characteristic of Canada's Now  West. They have called their town  HURRY, and that they are true to  their name is shown in the fact that  whereas a year ago the site of the town  was Just rolling prairie, It now has  stores, churches, schools and practically all tho comfort^ of civilization. Hurry is located twenty-five miles south of  Vegrevllle, Alberta. Add it to the names  in your Gazetteer, for it will he heard  of again.  A Forest of Giant*.  It Is almost impossible for one who  has seen only the eastern or Rocky  mountain forests to Imagine the woods  of the Pacific coast. Pictures r������ the  big trees are as common as postage  ���������tamps, but the most wonderful thing  about the big trees is that they are  scarcely bigger than the rest of the forest. The Pacific coast bears only a  tenth of our woodland, but nearly half  of our timber. An average acre in the  Rocky mountain forest yields one to  two thousand board feet of lumber; In  the southern forest, three to four thousand; In the northern forest, four to  six thousand. An avernge acre on the  Pacific coast yields fifteen to twenty  thousand. Telescope the southern and  Rocky mountain forests, toss tho northern on top of them and stuff the central Into the chinks, and, aero'for acre,  the Pacific forest will outweigh them  all.

"The whites are crowding u������ out,  they are taking away our -heritage."  That is the burden of the address which  the chiefs will present to the King.

Perhaps  we are among the most remote of your  Majesty's subjects, yet, we give place  to none in our loyalty and devotion to  your Majesty's person and to the British Crown. Our home is beyond the  great Atlantic Ocean, beyond the great  inland seas of Canada, beyond the vast  wheat-growing prairies of Manitoba,  beyond the majestic Rocky Mountains,  away on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

There would have to be some recognized authority ln charge ot the issue  of the stamp. There is the International  Bureau of he Postal Union at Berne,  Switzerland, which could supply the  stamps to all countries ln the union, but  the difficulty encountered at Rome waa  that each oountry would still be free to  tssue universal stamps within Its own  borders, but without regard to their  destination. This would -mean that  each country would have to keep  track of all the postage on letters sent  from a foreign oountry. It would be  a big Increase in the work of the post-  offices, and in the case of Canada would  necessitate the employment of another  hatch of clerks in the Postoffice Department at Ottawa. The Congress of  Rome thought that It wouldn't do.  United States Got Some.  Or eat Britain, and Incidentally Canada, came away from the congress  with no mean trophies, but there were  other victors. The United States, after some hard work, secured one or two  important privileges. They obtained tha  right to use the face of the picture postcard���������'half of it���������for correspondence.  Italy, Switzerland, Germany and some  other countries have been doing this for  a considerable time, but It haa been  forbidden in the United States. Uncle  Sam went to the congress determined  to get the concession, and after hard  pulling did succeed in getting it  ���������   Cut Down Transit Rate.  Much of the time of the congress  was occupied In reducing what is  known as the transit rate. This is  the fixed rate per kllogral charged by  an Intermediate country on mails carried jrom one outside country to another. For exampier~wpn letters "TeHf  from ."A" have, to pass through "B" to  get to "C," there is a transit rate charged by "B." .... ^     ,  The congress at Rome cut this transit rate in half.  This was one of the big battles of the  convention. Heavy transit charges have  to be paid on the greater part of ���������the  mail originating in Europe Dor the American continent. The proposal was  thus an Important one. England and  Germany did not oppose It. but "every  other European country did. They  fought lt La committee and on the floor  of the congress, losing in the end by  only two votes.  Australians Not 8ore.  The next Postal Congress will be held  ln Madrid. The Spanish capital had  extended an Invitation. So had Melbourne, Australia. The convention was  inclined toward Madrid, but the Australian Postmaster-General, Hon. Mr.  Chapman, and his fellow-delegates put  up a very strong canvas In favor of  Melbourne. They finally forced the  question to a vote and lost, but they  did not, as some reports have said,  take the verdict badly. They received  the vote in good spirit, and the motion  to make the Madrid movement unanimous came from them,  A colonel and a captain were shooting together.
