COPYRIGHT.      1005.      BY      LOTHROP      PUBLISHING      COMPANY  CHAPTER I.  IT -was In 1835, about midwinter,  ���������when Brier Dale was a narrow  clearing, and the horizon well up  in the sky and to anywhere a  day's journey. Down by the shore of  the pond there Theron Allen built hia  house. Today, under thickets of tansy,  one may see the rotting logs, and there  are hollyhocks and catnip in the old  garden. He was from Middlebury,  they say, and came west���������he and hia  wife���������in 1829. From the top of. the hill  above Allen's of a clear day one could  look far across the treetops over distant settlements that were as blue  patches in the green canopy of the^or-  esfT over hill and dale to the smoky  chasm of the St. Lawrence, thirty miles  north. The Aliens had not a child.  They settled with no thought of school  or neighbor. They brought a cow with  them and a big collie whose back had  been scarred by a lynx; He was good  company and a brave hunter, this dog,  arid one day���������it was February, four  years after their coming, and the snow  lay deep���������he left the dale and not even  a track behind him. Far and wide they  went searching, but saw no sign of  bim. Near a month later, one night  past 12 o'clock, they heard his bark in  the distance. Allen rose and lit a candle and opened the door. They could  hear him plainer, and now, mingled  with his barking, a faint tinkle of bells.  It had begun to thaw, and a cold  rain was drumming on roof and window.  "He's crossing the pond," said Allen  ns he listened.    "He's dragging 6ome  . hea.v_y__thing___over_the.ice." ,;  Soon he leaped in at the door, the little red sleigh bouncing after him. The  dog was in shafts and harness. Over  the sleigh was a tiny cover of sailcloth shaped like that of'a prairie  schooner. Bouncing over the doorstep  bad waked Its traveler, and there was  a loud voice of complaint In the little  cavern of sailcloth. Peering In, they  saw only tbe long fur of a gray wolf.  Beneath it a very small boy lay struggling with straps that held bim down.  Allen loosed tbem and took bim out  or the sleigh, a ragged but handsome  youngster with red cheeks and blue  eyes and light, curly hair. He was  near four years of age then, but big  and strong as any boy of five. He  stood rubbing bis eyes a minute, and  the dog came over and licked bis face,  showing fondness acquired tbey knew  not -where. Mrs. Allen took the boy in  ber lap and petted him, but he was  afrald-ltke a wild fawu that bas just  been captured���������and broke away and  took refuge under the bed. A long  time sbo sat by ber bedside wltb tbe  ���������mndlo, showing bim, trinkets and trying to coax blm out. He ceased to cry  when sho held before him a big, shiny  locket of silver, and soon his little hand  came out to grasp It. Presently sbe  began to reach hia confidence with sugar. Tboro was a moment of silence,  then strange words came out of his  biding place. "Anah Jouhan" was all  th-y could mako of them, and they re-  rnombored always that odd combination ef sounds, They gave him food,  which, ho ate with eager haste, then a  moment of silence and an Imperative  call for moro In somo strange tongue.  When at last ho came out of his hiding  placo he fled from the woman. This  time ho sought refugo between tho  knees of Allen, whoro soon his fear  gavo way to curloBlty, and he began to  feel her face and gown, By and by be  fell nsloop.  Thoy Boarchod tbo sleigh nnd skook  out tbo robo and blanket, fluding only  a pair ot warm bricks,  A Froncbman worked for thc Aliens  that winter, and the namo, Trove, was  of bis Invention.  And so came Sidney Trove, bis mind  in strange fetters, traveling out of tho  land of mystery ia a winter night to  Brlor Dale,  CUAritiii ii,  THE wind, veering, came bitter  cold; tbe rain bardcued to hail;  tbe clouds, changed to brittle  notn txt front and shaken to  shreds by the rough wind, foil binning  ln a scatter of snow, Next morning  when Allen opened his door the wind  was gone, tbo sky clear. Brier pond,  lately covered with clear Ico, lay under  a blanket of snow. Ho hurried across  the pond, bis dog following. Near the  fur shoro wns n bare spot on tho Ice  cut by one of the nI������-Mi rutuiers. Ip  iu tho woods, opposite, was tho Moss  trail. Sunlight fell on the hilts above  bim, He baited, looking up nt tlio tree-  tops. Twlir, branch and trunk glowed  with the fire of diamonds through a  lacy flecking of hoar from, hv-ery irvo  bad pvt on a jacket of Ico and become  bs a fountain ot prlstiaatic'Tiues. Here  and there a dead pine cose like a spire  of crystal; domes of deep colored glass  and towers of jasper were as the landmarks of a city. Allen climbed the  shore, walking slowly. He could see  no track of sleigh or dog or any living  thing. A frosted, icy tangle of branches  arched the trail���������a gateway of this  great, crystal city of the woods! He  entered, listening as he walked.  Branches of hazel and dogwood were  like jets of water breaking into clear,  halted drops and foamy spray above  him. He went on. looking up at thii  ������ong sky window of the woods. In  ���������Tie deep silence he could bear his heart  '^eating.  ''Sport," said he to the dog, "show me  Tbe way." But the dog only wagged  his tail. .  Allen returned to the house.  "Wife," said he, "look at the woods  yonder. They are like the city of holy  promise. 'Behold I will lay thy stones  with fair colors and thy foundations  with sapphires, and I will make thy  windows of agate.'"  "Did you find the track of the little  6leigh?" said she.  "No," he answered,  "aor will any  man, for all paths are hidden."  "Theron,   may  we keep  the boy?"  she inquired.  "I think it is the will of God," said  Allen.  The boy grew and throve in mind  and body. For a time he prattled in a  language none who saw him was able  to comprehend, but he learned English  quickly and soon forgot the jargon of  bis babyhood. The shadows of mys-  ~tery-that-fell_a_y,eiLhis_cojBjngJgngthen^  ed far into his life and were deepened  by others that 'fell across them. Before  hp could have told the story all memory of whom he left or whence he came  had been swept away. It was a house  of riddles wh<tre Allen dwelt���������a rude  thing of logs and ladders and a low  roof and two rooms, yet one ladder led  high to glories no pen may describe.  The Aliens, with this rude shelter,  found delight ih dreams of an eternal  bome whose splendor and luxury  would have made tbem miserable bere  below. What a riddle was this! And  then, as to the boy Sid, there was tbe  riddle of bis coming and again tbat of  his character, which latter was, Indeed,  not easy to solve. There were few  books and no learning in that bome.  For three winters Trove tramped a  trail to the schoolhouse two miles away  and bad no further schooling until be  was a big, blond boy of fifteen, wltb  red cheeks and large eyes, blue and  discerning, and bands hardened to tbe  ax helve. He bad then discovered tbe  beauty of the woods and begun to  ���������tudy the wild folk tbat live In boles  and thickets. He bad a fine face. You  would bave called blm handsome, but  not they among whom he lived. With  tbem handsome was as handsome did,  and tbe face of a man, lf it were cleanly, was never a proper cause of blamo  or compliment, but there was that In  his soul which even now bad waked  the mother's wonder and set forth a  riddle none was able to solve,  (Jo Be ���������Continued.)  in* vnltntrp of tlic F.nut,  Omar Khayyam wns a famous Per*  Blan poet and mathematician in tho  twelfth century, who was employed by  tl:o Sultan Mitlilc Shah In revising tho  astronomical tables and in making a  thorough reform of the calendar.

Tho building' permits of Edmonton  this year are over one million dollar  in value.  Five years ago the city had 1,200 of  a population; a conservative estimate  now places the population at 12,000, and  ln great confluence the good people  of the most, northern city expect to  have ln another five years 35,000 inhabitants.  The city owns Ita public utilities,  electric light, water works and telephone ayatema. For a thousand miles  north wheat can be grown. Government statistics on the crop of 1906 show  the average yield of spring wneat .n  the Edmonton district to have bein  24.29 bushel*, and winter wheat 24.51  to the acre.  Subserve* Enormous District.  The city, subserves an enorrnous district to the north. In that vast territory the Inhabitants sleep in blankets  made in Edmonton of Central Alberta  wool, and eat flour, oatmeal, baoon and  butter malde at Edmonton, the latter  being enclosed in tubs of Edmonton  manufacture. The doors and windows  in the far northern residences are sent  from Edmonton factories; and the  cigars smoked are the product of one  of its flourishing industries Every  package of merchandise that goes into  that country bears the brand of some  Edmonton house.  It is essentially a modern town, with  yet a fund of historic associations. It  was scarcely a village ten years ago.  and nearly three-quarters of it have  been built during the last four yeara.  The city is one of the greatest primary  markets for fur on the continent. It  Is rapidly becoming also a milling centre, there being now in the city and  Aear-by territory, fl :e flour milts and  a cereal mill, with a flour mill of ?M  barrel capacity under course of construction.  '.,������������������     Enormous Su->-'v of Coal.  Another obvious factor in Edmon*  ton's development is the enormous supply of easily-mined coal of high grade,  whioh underlies the city and surrounding dist; ict. This aoal is so easi.j-  mined that it can be sold retail, and  delivered Into the cellars of citizens at  a cost of $3.00 a ton. Coal of good  steaming quality is delivered to mills  and factories at a cost of not less than  _������1.50_per- ton. ,:  Tfien3ulldlin_WTMtTire"^^  streets are not of the light, cheaply  built class more or less temporary so  often noticeably In a hew town In the  Weist. They are solid, massive, permanent structures. The water works  and sewerage systems, together with  the electric lighting, were taken ov������.r  In 1902. The water Is taken from the  Saskatchewan, a glacier-fed stream  which Is absolutely free from organic  matter. On electric lighting the city  Is making a good profit notwithstand-  Jng that rates are lower than in other  Western cities, the revenue this year  ���������acceding $50,000. The service ls beyond criticism, and no town ln Canada is better lighted than the new  capital. There are now about 350 telephones on the Edmonton exchange  (also a municipal enterprise). There  ls a farmers' line going through the  Clover Bar and AgWcola settlement*.  A Mile of Cement Walk*.  Notwithstanding the enormous cost  of cement at such a distance from  points of production, last year a mils  of cement walks was put down, fourteen feet wide,  Some of Edmonton's public school  buildings Hre structures which would do  crodlt to any city In Canada. Alberta  College, completed about a year and a  half ago, has built an addition whicf  doubles tho capacity ot the bul'dlng.  With the coming of tho new the old  passes away. Recently the Old Inn of  Edmonton was torn down, a plaat.  around which life centred forty or fifty  years ago. Thoy atill toll the talo that  when any traveler complained of thi*  fare provided at tho hotel ho was gravely advised to ro to tho next, which was  only 750 niilou on, Portage la Piuiri-s  being the first stop after Edmonton  that boasted an inn.  ELEANOR.   AND THE..-  GRAFTER  By Harriet Batchelor Bradner  The day Eleanor Beverly had been in  her position as Cornwell's secretary six  months something happened. The political boss of his precinct, McWilliams;  having made an engagement over the  telephone, paid the young lawyer a  visit at lunch hour, when the place was  practically deserted.  Having carefully closed the door behind him, he settled his huge bulk lu a  chair and came at ouce to business.

OUT OF SCHOOL  BECAUSE OF COLDS  THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN WILL ACQUIRE  LUN6 TROUBLES WHICH COULD BE  AVOIDED BY USING  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Unseed and Turpentine  The records of attendance at the  Toronto Public Schools show that  ten thousand children were absent  on Account ol colds during a single  month.  "The worst enemy of all to the  child, so far as keeping him from  school is concerned, apparently is the  common, everyday cold," said Dr.  Goodchild in his report to the Ontario School Association.  "Not only does the cold prove an  enemy in this way," he continued,  "'but it is well known that many of  the more serious diseases follow from  the simple cold. As a result of the  patient becoming weakened down in  bis resistance against disease, the  germs of various infectious diseases  the more easily find a place to .multiply somewhere in the organism."  Parents who make a practice of  keeping Dr. Chase's Syrup of Liriseed  and Turpentine in the house have  at hand the most certain means of  curing   coughs,    colds,    croup,    and  bronchitis, and positively preventing  more serious disease. It is sometimes forgotten that few ailments possess more possibilities of danger than  a cold,  Mrs. R. D- Turner, Broadview, Nl  W. T., writes: "We have seven  children and have used Dr. Chase's  Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine for  every one of them and with good results. We get four bottles at a time  and find it a good remedy to break  up colds on the lungs."  Not only is Dr. Chase's Syrup of  Linseed and Turpentine a positive  cure for croup, bronchitis, whooping  cough, asthma, and severe chest  colds, but it is also a preventative of  all diseases of the lungs.

At Walton-on-the-Thames Nicholas  had encountered the young princess  for the first time, and his desire to  marry her was approved by Alexander  III. The- Czarevitch had" now to do  the wooing. One beautiful summer  evening he met the lady of his choice  in the pavilion alone/and absorbed  in reveries. The opportunity was as  favorable as the Grand Duke could  desire, but he found it hard to pop  the question in the stiff form prescribed by Russian Court etiquette,  and the words almost stuck in his  throat when he finally took courage,  sat down by the side of the princess*  grasped her hand, and solemnly de-f  clared: "The emperor, my father, has  commanded me to offer you both my  hand and my heart." "The queen,  my grandmother," the princess answered, smiling, and with a roguish  twinkle in her eyes, "has comman������.ed  me to accept your hand." Whereupon she burst out laughing, and  added: "As to your heart, I accept  it of my own free will."

Not only aro protests  cdmlng from labor organizations, bqt  the manufacturers are equally pronounced in their opinion that prison  labor should be taken out of fhe range  of competition with freo labor.  Convicts must be kept at work,  otherwise penitentiaries will become  mere asylums for the Idler and th������j  tramp, arid a haven of rest to the criminal. On the other hand, industrial iii*-"  terosis demand a modification of the  -preBeut-system-of^prison-emplo,1^!*!^-,  They go further and say that. tho  manufactured articles coming from the *  venltontlaries should be so designated.  What, then, is to be our disposition  of prison labor?  The municipal authorities throughout the country have of recent years  provided prisoners with work on the  public highways, and the moral effect  tas been surprisingly good, It would .  toe imp^slhle, perhaps, to make such  provisions for tbe convlots of our  penitentiaries, although there ls no  reason why a convict should not be  kept In or transferred to, tho local jail  and made to serve his time there ';s  en employe of the municipality.

And  the  Part an   English   Statesman  Played Vyhen the Clock Struck  Twenty-Thre.o  Times.  There Is a racy reminiscence of tho  present HoirMj Secretary and his school  contemporaries in an illustrated article in the summer number of The.  Pail Mall Magazine, just to.hand. The  first time I spoke to Herbert Gladstone (says the writer, "Ain Old Schoolfellow") will always remain ' fixed in  my memory, for it was one of the  most exciting moments of my Eton  schooldays,, and as the episode connected therewith has often been discussed by hundreds of Etonians, the  solution may interest them. I vrefer  to the memorable occasion when the  dear old clock in the sch*x>lyard went  apparently off its veneratole head, and  struck twenty-three times without any  known reason.  On a certain fateful day  I  was   In  ���������  the company of a little friend of mine,  j  whose nickname   was   "Senex.'V  owing  !  to his old-fashioned appearance, when,  ���������  on  passing-  the  entrance  to  cloisters,  wo noticed that the door leading to the  clock tower .was half-open.  Without a  moment's hesitation  we   crept  inside,  and   found   ourselves  facing   an   iron  spiral staircase.     It was very dark in  "tire"tov.-eT,-the-only*light-eom+T.g4hroughi���������  little  slits  in  the  wall.     Taking-  our  courage,  however,  in both  hands,  wo  'bc^an to climb, the stairs, and as we '  frot higrher and higher, so the noise of  '.he  mighty ticking 0! the, clock    in-  orcasedsand lured us to our fate, till  finally we found ourselves in a sort of  room, whero all. the works were exposed  to  our  eager  eyes.    For the first  few minutes we were too awed to move,  but by degrees  wo  gained confidence  and began to touch various parts of the 1  mechanism.    "Senex" was particularly  busy In this respect, and finally pulled  a weird kind of lover.  Suddenly, without   a   moment's   warning,   the  clock  struck!   Ye gods, what a noiso It made '  In the silence of that little room!     It  seemed as If the whole tower was .coming about our ears, and as If the old  clock'In Its righteous'an'iyer was pro- ,  claiming to the whole school the sacrilege perpetrated 'by two littlo lower ;  boys.  Tho time was about olevon, and tho  schoolyard'..was full of boys waiting to  po br-fnro their respective masters. At  first we wero not, greaitly perturbed,  but when wo had counted thirteen or  fourteen Bt-rokos, uncontixjllablo panic  ael-zod us both, and we began tumbling  down the Btalra as hard as wo could,  pursued by tho sound of tho mad clanff-  Jnir of the outraged clock. And what  added to onr tcrrbr was >tho sight,  through the silts In tho masonry, of  some tw> or throe hundred boys and  mnst������n. giu-lnff up at the clock tower  In ������poei_hlfSR aatonlshmwt. "Snnox"  reached the bottom of tho spiral staircase hcfoi'f. ma u.!.<l .un plump into  the arms of old 1 loliJornesa, the cus-  tiVIlrin of the clolHtors.  Poolnp the cnpt'iro, I prr-noodod to  hide In a dark corner by \hn door; and  half an hour later, when all was quiet  and tho clock had or-ased fwm tr sibling, I cautiously slipped out Into tho  Hoh'xilyanl. It was hero I lwppono-1  to ment Herbert Olndn'ono, who wa.8  then high up In tiro sohool and a celebrity In his way, for he pltiyod In tha  pclicol f-v-ishnii olewn, and xvna in  "Pop," Undor ordinary clrcumstnnccB  J would not havo dared, as a lowrr  hoy, tn stop Mm In tho street; but I  wnu lalwrlw un'or rriw.t ..xi.llomcnt,  pnd wns undocldod an to what wft������. the  rlfrht thlnf' t<i d'> no fnr oh my loyalty  tn ������������������Prinox"' won ennoornod.

Jone-Twent to bed and when  he was almost asleep could Hear her  still scolding him unmercifully. He  dropped off to sleep and awoke after a  couple of hours, only to hear his wife  remark, "I hope all the,, women don't  have to put up with such conduct as  this."

One of the most astounding ajid at  the same time heartrending  cases  Ot !  the many which passed through The '  Montreal   Star's  Information   Bureau,  was that of a woman who wanted a  few dollars more than her    husband \  had allowed! her for clothing for her !  daughter's first communion, :  Caught by the alluring circulars  whioh had been freely sent albroad by  mail and hand delivery, she ^ent to  the office of one of the worst of the,  usurers, and borrowed ten dollars. Sho  wm told that she would have to got  the signature of her husband to the  note, and she replKd tbat she did not  want her husband to know anything  about lt. \  The crafty manager of the firm re*  piled that there was no necessity for  hor to let her husband know anything  ab������ut lt, but to simply sign his name  In a "kind of a back hand" and thm  sign her own name. He told her h������  would leave her alono for a few minutes, aad a man would then oome ln  and aj$k hor if phe had seen her husband slgp the note. Sho fought to get  out of the act and Its attendant disgrace, but the._ man assured her that  to just answer'yes to a question waa  not like taking an oath.  She fell Into the.trap and when the  usurer's tool had left the room she  forged her husband's name and then  wroto her own.  Here are her own words: "When ths  other man came Into the room I stood  with my face to the floor, becausfe I  knew what I had done. When he  asked trie if I saw my -husband sign  the paper I said "Yes.' God knows  how sorely I was tempted.' Then he  asfced mo if T could Vet my oldest  daughter, who is just 16, to sign It. 1  had told him that she was working.  I said that I would, and he told me  to send her to him.

Not long after she camo ln to the  house crying bitterly and asked me  what kind of a place it was that I  sent her to.

TOURING THROUGH THE  ������������������ ROCKIES ���������  A Reminiscence   of the    Many    Pleasures    of    a    Short  Vacation  Spent Amid   the Glories of the Canadian Alps.  (Contributed   by   H.  W.   Dearman.)  The mantle of night had scarcely  enveloped the busy western metropolis one evening early in August,  when the writer ensconcecr himself  snugly in a 0. P. R. first class coach  to be whirled across the vast prairies  of the Canadian West to enjoy a  brief respite from the daily grind in  a first visit to that province of mountain splendor and wondrous scenic  beauty���������British Columbia. With that  portion of the country traversed between Winnipeg and the Mountains,  most of those who chance to scan this  brief narrative, will, no doubt, be already familiar, and therefore it is  necessary to make but passing mention. At that time of year, however,  and in a year which for abundant  harvest bids fair to eclipse anything  on record, tlie sight of so many immense stretches of ripening' grain  was one calculated to implant a  spirit of pride and satisfaction in the  breasts of all who can drink in the  view and revel in reflection upon the  illimitable possibilities of agricultural development in a country of such  huge areas of soil of matchless fertility. Indeed, there is small room  to doubt that the eight hundred odd  miles of prairie covered in the run  to the foot of the Rockies will one  day appear as it were an unbroken  field of Waving grain-���������a glorious tribute to that wealth of heritage to  which we are proud to lay claim to**-,  day.  But while dwelling for a moment  upon the consideration of the almost  unbounded stretches of grain fields,  there is another factor, and that a  potent one, in the development of  Western Canada, which must nqt be  lost sight of, and that is the cattle  industry. One needs but a passing  glimpse of the vast herds of cattle  and flocks of sheep that dot the landscape, to obtain u pretty accurate  conception of the important part  played by this branch of husbandry  jinjsur country's upbuilding. One may  see as nwn7~as~ten-thousand-in-one-  flock of sheep, while bands of cattle,  many hundreds strong, are no uncommon sight; and more finely-conditioned stock one could hardly wish  to cast eye upon, but this is no cause  for wonder when me boundless  stretches of that most nutritious of  pastorage ��������� Western Bunch Grass-  are taken into consideration. From  Moose Jaw to Calgary seems one vast  cattle range, but with the advent of  irrigation facilities it is safo to predict that the grazing areas will make  way for the plough, cultivator and  binder.  By the time Calgary is reached,  and even before that, a well-defined  view of the Rockies is had, and swiftly rolling on one wakes almost as it  were from a reverie, so rapid, if not  almost instantaneous, seems the  transition from prairie to mountain  environment, to find himself in the  very presence of those awe-inspiring  monarohs that people as it were the  Pacific province, To one who has  ppent most of his life on the plains  There is a remedy over sixty  years old���������Ayer's Cherry  Pectoral.

The tourist experiences  alternately a sense of boundless ad-  ! miration and a feeling oi ecstatic  pleasure that seem to paralyze all  powers of speech and leave him  , transfixed with astonishment. Ad-  . jectives have not yet been manufac-  ] tured that will begin to convey an  j adequate idea of the magnificence  J and majestic grandeur of those lofty  ; snow-capped peaks whose towering  heights on every hand seem to'penetrate the very clouds and defy human estimate of:size and altitude.  One of the most striking features in  connection with* this sea of wonder  in the remarkable purity and transparency of water wherever seen, while  mere seems a very legion of springs  bubbling forth from the crevices  along those portions of the bases of  the mountains that are visible to the  naked jeye. First you will see "a little stream trickling through a small  cleft in the rock to wind its almost  trackless course through a myriad of  small pines and ferns and empty* itself in some mightier flood; or, again,  cyou catch sight, far up the rocky  steep, of some rushing torrent, fed by  seemingly inexhaustible snows . and  glaciers, leaping turbulently from  crag to crag in ita impetuous haste  to find its level in one of the many-  lakes so constantly in view. Of the  glories and wonders of the many  places of interest along the route,  such as Banff, Laggan, Field, Glacier, etc., too much cannot be said,  but the greatest tribute to the wealth  of beauty and scenery is found ih the  ever-increasing numbers of tourists  from every quarter of the globe that  are everywhere seen and tax to tlieir  limit of capacity the resources of accommodation of the many superbly  appointed hotels of the 0. P. R. and  fill to repletion all the privately owned hotels along the . route throughout  the entire season.    While the lakes  4n^he^ci_m_ls___tM_Jl0_LlJH_HFs' anc*  the vast glacier fields  always  coTTP"  mand a protracted visit, there are  other equally interesting sights that  should not be missed, such for instance as "The Great Divide," where  a small stream is seen gently descending the mountain side, and ere  it reaches the railroad track dividing  into two small rivulets, the one to  swell into a mighty river that will forever be pouring its waters into the Pacific ocean, the other to flow eastward  and northward with ever-increasing  strength till it finds its outlet in the  Hudson's Bay, Or take, again, some  of the great engineering feats in the  construction of thai necessarily most  tortuous of lines that runs from  mountain to sea. It is not sufficient  that the path of the iron steed  should be hewn out of the solid  granite, but it has at times to be  swung across some torrent rushing  hundreds of feet below. One of the  most interesting and withal nerve-  shaking pieces of construction is that  found west of Glacier where the  course of the line in crossing a deep  valley, takes the shape of the letter  S, spanning several times, at an  alarming altitude, tho same rapid  stream, and ultimately leaving the  valley at an elevation many feet below that at which it entered. Again,  the view at such places as the Kicking Horse Canyon, with its four tunnels to be seen at one and the same  time, and Roger's Pass, with its tremendous grades, and glimpses of many  astonishing twists and turns and curves along the route, will nil serve to  keep greeu iu the memory of the  traveler a trip that abounds in unparalleled scenery and thrilling feats  of engineering.  At Sicamous Junction a divergence  was made to visit tlie far-fam������.d Oka-  nagan Valley, and little could ono  realize what a glorious surprise was in  store. This is without a doubt ono  of the loveliest spots In all British  Columbia, while it is not too much to  sny there in no fruit raising area on  tlio continent that will compare with  it for fertility of soil, abundance of  yield ond quality of product. Moreover, thero is a peculiar character ot  climute here not to bo found else-  whore from epast to coast. Even extremely hot us it certainly was while  the writer was there, there was yet  that dryness and buoyancy in tho air  that seemed to neutralize the intensity  of the heat and render it even agree-  iW<" mxd this olimntio feature ia the  more noticeable to a person accustomed to llie uuetvutiiut vUk*. ut h<.-..l  in a naturally humid atmosphere.

Around Vernon  and north to' Armstrong, lying to the  north of the lake, there is a magnificent stretch of rolling country where  immense crops of grain and fruit are  annually harvested, and where irrigation is available it is no uncommon thing to cut four crops of hay  or clover in the same year. A visit  to the extensive fruit ranch (they call  them ranches, not orchards) established near Vernon by Lord Aberdeen,  affords one of the most pleasing spectacles to be found anywhere in the  country. Here may be seen to what  degree of perfection fruit culture can  be developed with the aid of skill  and science and modern facilities and  the co-operation of Dame Nature in  her most generous mood; and one  can readily understand how it is the  products of tliis ranch have attained  such a world-wide reputation.  At Okanagan Landing- the writer embarked on the C. P. R.  steamer "Aberdeen" fot Peachland,  the point of destination, and the  memory of the pleasures of this most  enjoyable portion of the trip will ever  remain. Lake Okanagan is a lovely,  transparent sheet of water some 75  miles long and averaging two to  three in width, and is literally teeming with fish of the genus trout. Indeed, fishing in the lake as well as  in the creeks that skirt its shore affords constant occupation to many  who make it a source of livelihood,  while the amateur devotee of line and  rod ���������'will find his Elysium within constant reach in almost any portion of  thef valley. After leaving the Landing the first port of call was Kelow-  11a, which enjoys a most picturesque  location on a large stretch of beach  l_8l3_i__o,n__th^ieastern jihpres of the  lake, this thnving^wn is situated*  in the heart of a famous fruit section and is acquiring ever-increasing  notoriety for the quality and quantity of the products annually exported. :���������������������������;:      '���������-.    --���������-..  '" .  From Kelowria is a short run bf  some fifteen miles to Peachland, the  limit of our lake trip. The first  glimpse of Peachland nestling on the  western shore of the lake is suggestive of that peace and contentment  that ever appeal so strongly to the  jaded city slave, while the physical  surroundings of the district seem to  have been designedly constituted by  Nature to afford one of the most,  charming landscapes the eye could  wish to rest upon. But there is a  material charm to this district that  is daily forming a- still greater attraction. Peachland, as its name  suggests, is essentially a peach-raising district, and in the production of  this peerless of fruits it stands unrivalled in Canada today. This section, though of comparatively recent  settlement, already boasts of many  bearing ranches, and the writer picked fruit from trees in their fourth  year that would average at least three  cases of peaches to the tree, and saw  as much as one thousand dollars'  worth of fruit gathered from les3  than two hundred five-year-old trees,  And suoh peaches! We had never  tasted fruit with such a peculiarly  luscious, mellow flavor���������so different  to tlie insipid, green-picked apologies  for poaches one frequently finds exposed for sale in centres far removed  from the source pf production.

After a; brief sojourn In Peachland,  we rejoined the main line at Sica-  mous Junction to continue on to  the coast, and soon were again traversing a wealth- of lake and mountain  splendor, shortly to emerge into a magnificent stretch of ranching country  reaching out for many miles in ail  directions; with a distributing centre  in the flourishing and picturesque j  town of Kamloops. From Salmon-  Arm clear to Asheroft, on either side j  of the line, are seen many attractive homes, in the establishment of  which mixed farming, under most  favorable conditions, has evidently  played no mean part. Here, too, we  rind that irrigation Hi becoming  a strong factor in successful agriculture, and huge crops have been garnered wherever an unlimited water  supply was available to develop that  latent wealth of soil so common in  these mountain regions. From Ash-  croft on toward the coast we again  passed through numerous rugged  mountain defiles, where railroad and  river seem constantly vying for the  right-or-way, though considerable expanses of comparatively open country are seen west of Agassiz, at  wnicft point there is a very interesting and extensive experimental farm  operated by the Dominion Government. Perhaps the most attractive  sight between here and the coast is  the magnificent view had of Mount  Baker, in Washington, rearing its  .twelve thousand odd,feet of rock and  glacier far into the clouds.  On reaching Vancouver, the features of paramount interest, after a  protracted residence so many miles  inland, were naturally, the ocean and  its commerce. The sight of the sea  at all times arouses a pleasureable,  exhilarating sensation, and one never  seems to tire in the contemplation of  'the* wonders of the deep and the  study of the important part the ocean  plays in the commerce of the world,  so freely instanced on every hand in  the countless varieties of merchant  craft.

It is fitted with every  -modern-!Sconvenience,~has-_exquisite_  cuisine, and is elaborately furnished  in perfect taste and style, and affords  another instance of the magnificent  scale upon which anything undertaken by the C. P. R. is carried out.  The beauties of the trip to Victoria,  on a day of perfect calm and .cloudless firmament, witii a clear perspective of the gorgeous island scenery  that lines the route, cannot easily be  described, and words can only! convey but a faint conception of the  pleasure experienced. The "Princess"  traverses the Gulf of Georgia, and  entering the Georgia straits winds its  course through myriads of lovely islands and sandy bars down into the  Straits of Juan de Fuca, and, rounding the southernmost point of Vancouver Island, comes to anchor in a  harbor of natural beauty at the very  threshold of oue of the fairest cities  of the Pacific. And hero it is that  Nature seems to have been most lavish of her gifts, for there abound in  and around Victoria many spots of  great scenio beauty the charms of  which beggar description. The physical formation of the distriot is decidedly hilly but from the many eminences may be obtained some of  tho most delightful views of island  and sea, promontory and bay, and  hill and dale. Indeed, so fascinated  was the scribe with the extreme natural beauty on every hand that he  was very loath to terminate an ail  too short a stay and commence the  journey homeward, to again enter the  arena of that hustling activity for  whioh our prairie capital is noteai  Tlio morning of August tho sixteenth found our party trudging, grip  in hand, down to tho wharf where  rode at anchor the Princess Victoria,  frosh from her Seattle trip, to mingle  with tlie throng of tourists homeward-bound. The sun's scintillating  rays, coupled with the dazzling reflection upon the water of the white-  painted hulk of our craft, almost enveloped us in a flood of brilliance  that seemed to mock at the general  reluctanco to leave so charming and  congenial a resort as Victoria, But  it "had to be," and clearing port at  an early hour, we Beemod to traverse  all too soon the hoautios of the return voyage to Vancouver; and after  enjoying a few short hours around  the city, once more wore established  in ono of tho comfortable tourist  coaohos of the C.

Nothing was growing up above, and  the ground was so hard that they were  unable to scratch, it up and nibble the  roots whicii grew underneath. They  lived for ever so long on the bark of the  trees; but the farmer did not like his  fruit trees to be nibbled, so he put wire  repeated. "I quite admire your genius  for telling it by the feeling in your  bones. I tell it by the shining of the  sun. But it may not be spring yet, for  all that. Let. us go for a run and see if  the young grass is sprouting and the  roots growing. They are the only sure  signs, after all."  So up they went, and sure enough,,  they found that all the little green  plants were coming up out of the earth  to look at the sun.  They  only   stopped  long  enough   to  "By my grandfather's paws and ears!  Where did you come from?" asked Mr.  Bunny, looking the picture of astonishment.  "Please, I Heard you playing, and I  broke out of my cage, because I love  to play, and I hoped you would not object to my joining you," said poor Mr.  Porcuolne. .  Now, I think all boys and girls will  agree with me that bunny rabbits are  among the best-natured of animals.  These were, ��������� anyhow, and they felt so  s  around them, and the poor little bunnies  had to go hungry.  One morning Mrs. Bunny woke up and  began to' sniff the air with her pretty  little nose, Then she became greatly excited.  . "Wake up! Wake  up!"  she  cried to  Mr. Bunny.   "The sun is shining, and I  -am-sure-the-spring-has-come-at-lastl"   "Nonseiise, my dear," replied Mr. Bunny with a sleepy yawn, "nonsense." But  the next minute he sat up and sniffed  the air, too. *  "I believe you are right after all, my  dear," ho admitted. "The sun is shining."  How they could tell that the sun was  shining up above when they lived in a  dark tittle house right under ground I  do not know. But they could. Some animals are really very clever, you know.  "You are quite right, my dear," he  taste the fresh leaves.   Then they ran  off   to  tell   their   friends.  "Wake up! Wake up! The spring is  here," they called, and soon ever so  many bunnies were laughing and skipping about over the fields, full of joy  because the cold winter was gone.  "I think we must have a spring  party," said Mr. Bunny, "down in the  green pasture by the woods."  "Oh, yes, do, please!" chimed in all  the other bunnies; "that would be  lovely." And so they arranged It.  The Mrs. Bunny Rabbits made themselves some lovely dresses; but what  they made them of I do not. know exactly. Maybe they used little, green  leaves and grasses and pussy willows.  ���������The-day-of-the-party-came,���������and-they���������  all went in the pasture by the woods.  Here they danced and played leapfrog  and all kinds of jumping games, because  the bunnies like those games better  than any other kind.  Then they had a lovely tea party of  tender green leaves, and were about to  play some more games when they heard  a voice say:  "Please, may I play with you?   I'm,  so lonely."  There stood a porcupine���������a prickly  porcupine!  scrry for Mr. Porcupine because he  had no one to play with, and said:  "Come right along and join in this new  game we are starting." So Mr. Porcupine ran up and tried to jump about  like his playmates. But he was a  bristly, prickly .fellow, you know.  "Oh, dear, dear; he is tickling me!"  screamed Mrs. Bunny.  "Oh, o-o-o-oh! he is scratching me!"  cried this one and that one, and so on  all around the circle.  All the bunnies began to look very  angry. Poor Mr. Porcupine stopped  right still and sighed:  "Oh, dear! that is the way things always end with me. I always have to  end: up by going off and playing all by .  myself. And lt isn't my fault at all���������it  is all because I have these horrid bristles!" _  And so he turned away, and looked  so lonely again that the bunnies felt  very regretful.  __I_know what we can do," said Mr.  'Sunny, with-a~b~rTgh������rlook:���������"We-can���������-  play   hide-and-go-seek,   and   then   we  need not go very close to Mr. Porcu-  ,  pine and his spikes will not hurt us."  So they called him back and had a   ���������  delightful game of hlde-and-go-seek.  So Mr. Porcupine at last found some  playmates who would be willing to play  with him again the next day, and the  next, and the next. That made him  very happy, and now there is no danger of his ever being lonely again.  A. P. C.   v. ;  OME of the boys in Peytonsville, a  suburb of one of our large cities,  got up a mighty nice-looking club  house a summer or two ago, which  will be a good model for any of you  boys who want to make yourselves one.  The best part of this one is that it  cost almost no money���������only time. Of  course, during vacation, boys who do  not pretend to earn their living cannot  Justly call their time worth money.  One of the boys, writing a description  fit the club house, says:  We drew the plan rin a sheet of paper  first, and figured out roughly about how  ^uch wood we would need.   ...���������  Then we got our wood in hand. Father  had a number of packing boxes, includ-.  ing a piano box, and one of the fellows  got his father to give him some old  studding that had once been part of the  chicken house. The other boys contributed boards of various lengths and  as the roof was, wide, and commenced  tacking the strips on, the roof at th.  lower edge, lapping the next strip two.  inches over the last, and so on to the  top. This made a good, water-prooi,  roof;  Then wc laid the Moor; but first w,  placed three or four joists on the ground '���������  so as to raise the floor a few inches--  above the ground and. keep it dry.

That a  forest traot should thus bo eet aside  ie a faot patent to anyone who lookB  ahead, and beyond potty selHnter-  est the least little bit.   If this is not  done, the next generation will be  forced to seek for our "noble forest  treee" in by-gone agricultural ond  forestry reports.    Of course there  are hundreds--nay! thousands, of  people who ory out 1 cut) cut! in  respect, of timber, just as the Mu  tiny BendB cried "kill! bill! kill!"  but this ory is a selfish one and the  people who thus ory out are those  who strive to secure timber tracts  for the sole purpose of making  tncuoy, and nuking it quick,    So  long a������ iheir own pockets are filled  there is no thought for anything  else .  But apart from the preservation  of the forests, a tract should be set  apart ss a great national park for  tf taken now, will be a wise one.  Five years from now it will probably be too late.   Ten years from  i now it certainly will, and the rie  ing generation will vpeiik of having  heard of Elk and other unimalb at  one time being found oh Vancouver's Island.    In connection with  this game preserve, a suitable traot  oould he laid off as a forest reserve  on the jineti indicated by the Colonist.
