I put the  print of Sibyl among them .".nd then in-  vited Jimmy's*- inspection. For a fow  minutes thi boy dropped hip mask  He Viewed the pictures with hearty interest, asklna: questions which proved  thnt he was well taught nnd more than  ordinarily mature in ui'.nd. Yet once  or twice I caught himcicvin-ly pretending to know more than he did. and I  gained some small '..acquaintance with  the methods by winds i:e iU.-i:*hted to  anticipate the thought :i..d speech of  his elders.  At last he came upon fhe print, and'  It was a genuine surprise.'.'. Beyond  question he recognized ir at e, glance,  b;u when I asked him iv. tlio most ordinary tone I'cciild command'v.'hether  he knew the lady he lied with a counterfeit of sincerity quite shocking in  one so young. Indeed I could not have  done it better myself.  Still more suspicious than this falsehood was the fact, that he almost immediately remembered something that  he had promised to do for Mrs. Witherspoon. He made this the excuse for  his departure, and a few1 minutes later  I saw him hurrying away toward the  iv iJAvara tn������ mtenen door, in wmen  'By...  Howard  Fielding  T  There stood Jimmy -LalAvino .offering  me a light.  strip of woodland Ir-at lay back of the  bouse. He was not In search of Mrs,  Wltherspoon or upon any errand of  hers. It did not comport with my honor to follow hlra, but he had directed  my attention to the grove, which was,  more than largo enough to afford room  for both of lis.  I had como out with tho Intention of  going down to tlie lake, but tho wood  upon tho rising ground looked very Inviting, nnd so, talcing a different course  from Jimmy's nnd a more leisurely  pace, I ascended the gentle slope. I  was almost within tho shadow of the  One old trees when; turning a little to  the right, I came'suddenly into view of  a white parasol with blue 'polka dots.  There was a girl under It, and I stopped  short. Iraniedlatply Mr. Trask jumped  up from tho far, sido of the parasol,  sketchbook nnd pencil In hand, nnd  balled mo by name. Tho sunshade  dropped at thnt moment,'and I had a  glimpse of a dainty white gown adorned with bluo ribbons and of a vory  effective hat-so effective, Indeed, that  I nearly foil over backward at tho  sight of It, for beyond possibility ef  question It wns iho ono I had a picture  of lu my pocket, This was tlio inoro  certain because I saw tho lint before  tho lady turned her head-saw It pro*  clsoly ns tho camera hnd caught It,  Thero wns but nn lUHtnnt of tlmo, yot  Jt was quite enough, Then I saw the  lady's fnco and recognlwd MIhh Jqiioo  of St. Jo. She looked even pn-itlor than  wheu I had first seen her, nud tho gown  she woro wns certaluly a inlracJo of  sweet simplicity, As sho rone to greet  mo I poreelved thnt sho also had boon  sketching, and 1 had already seen tho  "subject," who was no other than our  landlady's nleco, looking quite picturesque In her plain gray gown and the  big sunboutict, which soomed to bo her  favorite headgear.  "flood mornlnir," sho pnld, looking up  at me without moving from the "pose."  Trask laughed nt lier In n gently teasing fashion ns ho took a step or two  toward her aud put his sketch pad Into  her hands.  "You're n crent mndo], Lucy Ann."  bo said. "I'm ashamed to havo dono no  better."  She looked at the sketch wltb ao  eager, childish Interest nnd scorned to  enjoy holding It in ber hands.  I taw tbif out of the comer of my  eye, my main attention Icing given to  Miss .lonet. Positively tbli could not  he Fibyl; there was not the slightest  physical   resemblance.

I  bad been pursuing a phantom. The  picture, I had found unquestionably  represented the girl before me. She  and Sibyl must be ���������friends, and thus  the picture had come into our house.  It was both a disappointment and a  relief. My thought of it was jiktrango  mass of contradictions. I woujd havo  liked to find Sibyl, though I had come  to Mrs. Witherspoon's to avoid doing  so. I had given myself great uneasiness for fear that Sibyl would not be  pretty, and here was the prettiest girl  that I had seen in five years, yet I was  glad she was not Sibyl.  While we talked tliere was a crackling in the underbrush and suddenly  Jimmy Lamoine burst forth in a great  hurry. It. must have been the surprise  of his life .when he saw me. A youth  of ordinary resources would have been  puzzled to account for his own presence there, nnd I think it was a notable  triumph of his peculiar .genius that ha  hesitated so short a time for a falsehood, scarcely long enough indeed to  get his breath.  "Your aunt wants you," said he to  Lucy Ann.  The ������irl roso with a quaint little sigh.  It wtisipleasanter no doubt to sit there  under ihe shade of-thc trees and be a  model for a hnmlFome young artist,  i pleasanter even ro envy Miss Jones'  j beauty and pretty clothes and unattainable refinement of manner, than to toil  ir. Mrs. Wiflici^Moon^ kite-hen. I ri'kd  ber with hearty sincerity, exercising  therein a virtue not my own, for such  merit is no more mine than is the  money that I spend. I have them both  from my father, and my real nature  goes back to some selfish anthropoid , the line of  'tlui^li^drJjT^n:ree^'uTl^^^peff5ctly~'r'i  satisfied so long as he had cocoanuts  enough to fill his own stomach.  "What! More cake:" exclaimed  Trask,.addressing Lucy Ann in'a fine,  cheery-tone. ."Really you mustn't make  It so good. , We eat it too fast. . I advise you to make a Dice soggy one this  morning."  ���������'I guess you don't know my aunt,"  said Lucy Ann.'  "Miss Wltherspoon," said I, removing  my .hat:with reverence,, "did you mako  the cake that we had with our ice  croam last evening?"  It Is a great thing to mean what you  Bay. If I had not vitally believed that  that cake was the best ever baked  since tho- world began, I could not  have piensed this poor child. She would  have seen straight through mc. As It  was, she gave me a quick glance of  gratitude.  "Yos," said she. "I made it'?'  "Lucy Ann mnkcs.all the cake;" said  Trnrk. "She is an Incomriarablo  artist." 1  "In that case," said I, "it is fitting  that 1'Should carry my hat In toy hand  all tho way back to;tlio house���������that is,  if Miss Wltherspoon will let mo walk  with hor."  Without waiting for a reply I said  good morning to Miss Jones and Trask,  nnd grinned nt Jimmy so tlmt ho might  know that I was deliberately withdrawing ln order to give hlra a chance  to deliver his messago about the plcturo. It wns n groat and rare pleasure  to observe that he wns disconcerted.  "Did you ever seo tho like of Jimmy  Lamoine?" said I to Luey Ana when  wo wero out of earshot.  I "If you'd taught school, as r have,"  sho replied, mentioning tho occupation  wllli a touch of pride, iir I thought,  ���������'you'd have soon a good many."  | "So you've been a schoolnia'ara," I  rejoined. "Do you llko ������������������ It,better than  making cake?"  "Cake ty mighty uncertain," said she,  "but I guess more school pupils are  ���������polled In the baking. I suppose a person naturally likes to do what be can  do best. I wish I could draw like Miss  Jones."  "Perhaps you could," said I, "If Mr,  Trask would teach you, IIo teaches  lier, doesn't he?"  "Yes," said Lucy Ann. "Uo teaches  tier uii the time,  "lu alio hlaylug hcic'J' I u,<UU.  She seemed not to have heard tbe  question, und I wus nbout to repeat It  when she mado n gesture toward the  house, and at tho same time shook ber  Head,  "You'll seo her around quite often,  though," she sold. "Ain't sho pretty'/"  "Indeed she Is," I assented.  "Mighty pretty, I call ber," said Lucy  Ann, and sbe compressed hor lips firmly after the words were out. We walked a little way In silence.  "(Joodby," she said suddtmly.   "I've  got to go lo." ,  . 8he noddtd to me ajd the.9 ran light-  the girl was some one whom" Lucy Ann  would recognize if she should see her  at close range.  I jotted down this point for future  reference. I had not yet made up. my  mind that the girl was Sibyl; that is, I  bad said so to myself, but something  within ine ������������������ had refused belief. Really  I could as easily believe, that Miss  Jones was Sibyl. The basis of this  confusion was tbat elusive memory  such as drives one distracted when a  She gave mc a quick glance of tjratlludc.  at that moment appeared Mrs. Witherspoon, looking, as I thought, not quite  as pleasant as usual.  I glanced back toward the spot where  we had left the others. All were upon  their feet, Trask facing in my direction, with Miss Jones at his right hand  and Jimmy at his left. By the way  that' Trask's head turned from side to  side I knew that an animated conversation was in progress, and I could not  be in doubt as to the subject. Jimmy  had told his news about the" photograph. Did they guess that I had supposed it to be Sibyl's? Probably. So  Trask was in the secret. He knew  whore Sibyl was.'  Well, for that matter, so. did I. Beyond question she was the girl in the  orchard.  CHAPTER VIII.  THE DEACON AND TIIE WRECK.  HE north   wind   was gaining"  strength as the day advanced.  The orchard was a mass of       tossirg  boughs as  I   looked  1 down upon it from my window.   Those  , trees must have been planted by an in-  ! spired geometrician, for tbe design was  j such that whatever point of ob'serva-  ! tion might be' selected there was al-  | ways one tree, and only one, between  i the observer aud tbe lodge.   It seemed  ! perfectly easy to move a little way and  get a clear view, but at the precise instant when any given tree passed from  vision another interposed.  ThlTl>rancljef" lning~low77ufd~iKr IcTd ge*  was on a hummock, so that a waving  | green veil always fluttered before It.  |    There, was no strong temptation to  j look thnt way, for/MlPS Scott's side of  I the lodge was the nearer to the house,  j and Miss Scott, by. all accounts, was  not a romantic object.   Nevertheless I  had acquired a habit of staring down  Into the orchard, and on this particular  day the high and rising wind so tossed  the boughs that I had a better view  than usual. I saw Miss Scott sitting  by the door, and I made her oat to be.  angular, awkward andj, litvell past her  youth, yet these* were gtiesses, for the  distance was considerable and my  glimpses momentary as the green billows of tbe orchard rose and fell.  Presently I saw Jimmy Lamoine go  down the crooked path, and I was not.  surprised. He exchanged a few words  with Miss Scott and then dodged round  the corner of the house, passing beyond  my vision. Half an hour latent was,  startled to see him coming along the  carriage way that led from the road,  There was, however, no mystery In his  return by tbls route, for tbe 'lay of the  land" was such that ho could bave  passed from tbe lodge to tbo road without being visible from any part of tba  house, unless perhaps the roof.  Ho paused just outside my window  and seemed about to deliver a remark  of tremendous importance; then he  changed his mind and went on without  saying anything. This was ono of  Jimmy's favorito methods of making  himself obnoxious; it was a rite ln his  religion of mystery, and lt sometimes  grieved mo sorely when ho thus annoyed mo to bo reminded of bis slstery  As for tho physical rcsemblaaco bo-  tween them which Lucy Ann had mentioned, I had never been able to seo It;  but I was beginning to be painfully  awaro that thtre was a certaiu similarity In their ways.  It was grotoBquo-tho likeness of a  fenrful caricature. That which was  with Anna a pretty air of reticence, the  veiling of somo sweet fancy, a delicious  name dances upon the tip of the tongue  for hours, even for days, and will not  be uttered. The girl reminded me of  somebody; and it seemed that if I  could but thJak of that person all doubt  would vanish. It did not vanish when  I thought of Sibyl. I  I spent the afternoon In the woods !  alone, "a book of verses underneath  the bough," no loaf of bread, no jug of  wine, no girl. Yet, though lacking the  best part of old Omar's prescription, I ,  did not waste the hours. The trees  sang well In tho wind, and the odors of  the wood were heady as wine. They  lured me away from my book; they  made me walk many miles without  weariness, indeed with an access of  strength for every step, and when at  last I strode across the fields toward  Mrs. Witherspoon's, with the western  sun giving me a half mile of shadow, I  viewed that1 part of the house which  held the kitchen with a certain uneasiness). At that distance it i^id not look  big enough.  But no man will starve at Mrs. Witherspoon's, no matter what his appetite  may be. She fed us amply and well  that evening, and I went forth after the  meal exceedingly content. Tlie breeze  had gone down with the sun, and the  lake seemed to be smooth as a mirror  when I viewed it from the head of the  long path, It invited me, and not in  vain.  There were half a dozen boats on  the strip of. beach, and I chose the one  that pleased me best. It was a rule at  ���������Mrs.-Witherspoon's .to-follow one's impulses in such matters. I judged that  a person whose impulses proved to bo  defective would be gently eliminated  from this idyllic spot and that the discovery of his unfitness would ne  prompt. Such was my confidence in  this notion that at the end of the first  weeli I would have gone into the With-  eivspGon stable and saddled a horse  with ,my eyes shut, sure that had I  been the sort of fellow to take the  wrong horse I should not have remained so long a guest of the house.  feet high, but of this only the top waa  ��������� visible, for it was of course impossible  I for me to see anything that was directly behind the light.  |    As for the singer, she was utterly in- >  visible.  There was something mystical  . ln this music, which seemed to proceed  j out of the red fire that,'with the fa-  i miliar habit of inanimate moving ob-  I jects, assumed to the eye the rhythm of  the song.  I was so deeply fascinated  by all this that I forgot my seaman  ship and let my oar strike the boat's  rail with a sharp sound.  Instantly the music ceased, and I was  tortured by a perfect silence. This  was an emergency, and I knew it. The  elnger might be at that moment escap-,  ing by some secret path among the  rocks. Por a moment I was near to  lhe deadly banality of addressing her,  apologizing, introducing myself, committing I know not what absurdity.  !    Then it occurred to my mind, that  since there undoubtedly was a way of  escape for her it might possibly  be  ���������  permissible for me to sing.  There have f  been serenades in all ages, and un-  '  doubtedly at one time or another women have listened to worse voices than  mine with very kind acceptance "of the  , offering for the sake of the spirit in  ���������  which it has been made.   Se I sang the  . first thing that came into my head, and  ,  it happened to be a ballad called "The  Evening Star," quite trivial in every  [ way, that I used'to sing to Sibyl long  I It is well known that in moments of ���������  excitement one speaks above his usual  pitch, and this law of nature worked to  defeat me in the present instance. The  man who wrote "The Evening Star" J  would never have dared to publish it  In the key that I hit, for he would have  found few that could sing it. I think  a special dispensation must have been  granted me, for I got through, the first  stanza like a nightingale, but I perspired freely with terror. Then I  waited, and by my sensations of duration it should have been 4 o'clock in  the next afternoon when I heard a  blessed sound from the shore. It was  the guitar, and presently the lady sang  . again. She had chosen "Heart's Delight," a quaint little melody, and  Sibyl's favorite of all, as I remembered.  I have strong faith in the power and  the will of chance to deceive a man,  but to take this for coincidence was an  impossibility.  It could be only Sibyl that sang to  me, and I must have been less susceptible to emotion than was the wood of  l_paddled,oiitJnt<^heJabe.-JEhere_t^e-boilt^ha^bora^^if-I_had^^t  was still a trace of color in the sky, and  all the air seemed to be most delicately  rose tinted. The mere eye could not  see this, could not watch It fade into  the faint gray of the ashes of roses, but  it was none tho less visible. There were  whispers from all the shores. The rough  hill spoke in'its own way; the low  ground where the willows grow had a  very different story nnd the orchard  another! I was naturally most inter-  'ested in\ thei orchard, and I propelled  the boatUo a favorable position, keeping my distance, however, ns I had  been taught.  Suddenly I became aware of a light  upon the shore. The lake mennwhile  had clothed Itself with Indistinctness  thnt was not the dark, but scarcely  more penetrable. That light had a reddish glow, and it illuminated nothing  except the narrowest path upon tho  water. I made It out to bo a Are of  little sticks kindled upon the rocks tbat  were quite rugged at the eastern slaw  of the orchard's sea edge near tho bill,  It was so placed as to be visible over  a small area only, ancl tbls I knew from  having como bo suddenly into tlio view  of it; Now, what should a light be klu-  died for upon tbe shore except for ths  sailor wbo seeks a harbor? A beacon  Is set upon a rock as a guide to sho*  the way. But there nro false lights, of  course, and the mariner must exercise  great caution; bo must not set all sail  in a, hurry.  I om a good skipper of small craft. I  can puddle over the rnll of a boat, nnd  you shall neither hear nor soe auythlug  that bears a hint of propulsion. And  thus I floated In toward tho shore  through tho gray night.  Presently thero came a sound ns If a  band had beeu laid upon a stringed Instrument; then thero were chords very  lightly struck, aud at last I beard a  woman's voice singing Hotkey tin air  thut was now to mc.

About  seven months ago I became so nervous that^I could not rest or sleep,  and could not do the least bit. of work  without suffering dreadfully from  pains in the back. I could hardly  walk, could eat very little, and felt  that people were always watching my  body twitch.  "I tried several medicines with littlo effect, and was a mere skeleton o.  skin and bone about to give up in dis-  pair when I heard of Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food, and began using it. I  have used in all fourteen boxes of  this preparation, and it has built mc  up until   I am now strong   und well  again. Dr. Chase's Nerve Fpod has  done mo a world of good, and I feel  that I cannot recommend it to highly to persons who suffer as I have."-.  Mrs.  Welcher,    wifo   of   Conductor.

Such a  man connected witb a large wrecking  company was visiting some years ago  the pearl fisheries in the gulf of California, where sharks abounded. On  one of his trips in quest of the pear!  oyster he had u canto w escape from a  fearful death.  Ho had been Instructed never to stir  from the bottom until he bad looked up  and around. Fortunately he heeded the  advice. Haviug filled bis bag he glanced  quickly about and caught sight of V  huge KhovelQuosed shark watching hlra.  . In an emergency men think fast Near  the diver was a large rock. Hu moved  '.quickly to the other side of it, hoping  to dodge the ferocious monster, but the  maneuver did not work. The shark  ���������watched every movement, changing his  position by a slight motion of his powerful tail.  Time was precious, and tbe diver  conceived the Idea of blinding the  shark by stirring up the mud. Under  cover of that he might escape. He  worked for dear life and had the water  thick with mud in less than half a minute.  Slipping around the rock again, he  rose to the surface, having barely  fitreugtb enough to reach the side of  the boat, and was hauled on board just  as the VoraciouB man eater made a  rush for him.  ���������.-���������-.���������jr-L  ������    ��������� :��������������������������� -.

The   Exa&'vrsv&ted   Courtesy   of   ths  Eighteenth Century.  In Social England the following appears as indicating the exaggerated  courtesy of fashionable people early iu  the eighteenth century: "Chesterfield  teaches that it is boorish to congratulate a friend on his approaching marriage with merely 'I wish you joy,'  when ho should have said, 'Believe me,  my dear sir, I have scarce words to express tho joy I feel upon your happy  alliance with such and such a family.'  The ���������compliment of condolence' on a bereavement should not be, 'I am sorry for  your loss,' but 'I hope, sir, you will do  me tho justice to be persuaded that I  am not insensible of your unhappiness,  JMr. Adam McMillan, the proprietor  iind editor of the Virden Advance, is  in some respects one o: the most ;n-  teivstir.j.' fibres ir. Y.\st<-:".i Canadian  life. I'\ w. e>en among the many-  phased men of the West, can be compared with him in point of the variety and the success of his activities. He has been a blacksmith a  surgeon, a soldier and an editor,  and in intervening intervals many  other things besides. In most of  theso he has been conspicuously successful, and even in those in which  good fortune was not so pronounced  no absolute   failure  can be recorded  j position, and his patriotism, drew  him toward enlistment. He received  . th- non-coinniis.sioncd office of farrier-sergeant with Strathcona's  Horse. Within a few weeks after.his  arrival in South Africa he was promo led to a lieutenant's commission,  through the illness of his superior officer. After seeing monthsyoi service  with the now historic Strathcona  Horse, Mr. McMillan was transferred  to the commander-in-chief's body  .ruard. with the rank of veterinary  captain. After nine months' service  with that corps���������during which its  ; gallant  conduct won merited   praise  om Lord Kitchener���������Captain McMillan returned home to Canada by  way of England. After spending tho  win' r in Mani'oha he again volun-  ��������� erred for service in thc reorganiza-  1 .-'on .������f the 5th ivirimcnt of Canadian  J Mounted Rides under command of  jLt.-Col. McDonild. D. S. C. Ho  iwas given entire charge of the vet-  jerinary department, with thc same  I rank as that on which he retired.  | But th ��������� 'vur was concluded by the  time this contingent ,'rrived in South  Ainca, and the troops returned  home by way of Kngland, in which  countr; 'apt. McMillan stayed tome  month!, lvfore leaving for Canada.  D will thus be seen that the editor  of the Advance has a distinguished  v.ar record, ln that war, which  war record. In that war, which  was one of the most just and humane ever waged, and which made  (he dream of Colonial Federation a  leality. he bore no unimportant  part. He, and those from the other  lolonial nations who served with  1 im on the veldt, perceived with a  keenness of instinct not surpassed by  tie most patriotic of Englishmen  fie magnitude of the issues at stake  i.i that happily ended war. They de-  ; oast rated, not alone to Britain  end her colonies, but to the world  : ! large, that the British Empire is  not, as are other'European (Jovern-  nients. a machine operated under an  air.ihitiotis sovereign or ambitious  salesman, but an Association,, in  which, with mutual support and  confidence, the .world-wide subjects of  one. Crown could come together for  all purposes, fiscal andrlmperial, in  which all were interested.  On returning home, Capt. McMillan took a practice in Virden. In a  few months he bought thc Advance.  Under Captain McMillan's control  tho Advance became much more independent,   but   lost   none    of   its   in-  So Quick, So  TO, MAKE QOOD TEA WHEN  that I take'part hi your~"disTre:rs"a"n^^  shall ever be affected when you are so.'  faith,  whether in the real'm of mind  His child began his lessons in 'breed-  or matter,   his   habit of mind is as  against him.

"I shall." he replied. 1  "Aud I"'- . !  She didn't finish. lie saw her eyes'  Gash and her jaw set. and he wondered j  if she had a temper of.,her own after j  all.    He  had  scarcely   made  his  de-;  parture  when  she  was  walking  Leri  room with clinched hands.   It wus two j  hours before she sat down to reason,  things out.   She was still r.-asoniug at!  midnight, and it was two hours later  before her plans were all completed.  At hrwicfast tfible tliere were no signs  of anger or disappointment or a broken heart, and tbe father winked at his  plate and whispered to himself:  "Rose's either the best of daughters  and ought to have a diamond ring for  this, or she has some little scheme to  spring on me. Very innocent girl, Rose  is, but she'll bear watching."  He should have watched her that  very day instead of making a journey  of twenty miles and back to Bee a  certain piece of real estate. While he  was tramping over the broad acres of  a farna and inspecting buildings she  was talking with a lawyer whose reputation was generally referred to as  "shady" and hunting up. a quiet boarding house in the suburbs. When the  father reached home it was to find, the  house in charge of an old servant and  to learn that the young mistress had  been absent all day. 'This was sonic-  thing so unusual that he was at once  alarmed, and. as night came he could  hardly sit still. The night passed .without a word from her, and he was making ready to call for the assistance of  the police when a note from Rose was  shoved under the front door by a boy  wbo rang the bell and ran away. The  note read that she had been kidnaped  and was being held for $7,000 ransom.  If tbe money was sent to a certain  place she would be set at liberty at  once.  If not���������w-ell���������  "I'll see 'em hanged first!" roared the  father as he roso to tho occasion. "She's  been kidnaped by James Brighton, of  course, but I'll have him behind the  bars within an hour!"  The police found James Brighton  easily enough, but he soon satisfied  them that he had no hand in the affair.  Naturally he was even inore concerned  than the father. He advised "no compromise," and for four days the police  had-charge of the case and worked every string they could grasp. , Second  and third notes were received from  Ro|e. She was being well treated.'but  the money must be paid or the kidnap-  jers_,would,become_desnernte. Day aji^  night the father and "the lover hunted  ln company, but tbe bold fellows had  covered their' tracks ��������� too .well. When  the police acknowledged themselves  beaten the ransom money was forwarded, and three hours later Rose was  homo. Never mind the tale she told.  Suffice it to say thnt it was well told  nnd bung together like a chain. It was  two evenings later that she smilingly  queried of James:  "Didn't you have an aunt die about a  month ago?"  "Yes; a dear old soul."  ������������������Didn't she leave you $5,000?"  "Bless me, but she hadn't $5,000 to"���������  "Oh, but she had.
