LIMITED  London, Melbourne and   Toronto,  "Yes���������I havo heard " lie said, and  after a  Becond of hesitation added,  "that Is to say���������I have heard as much  as Sir Miles told Miss Carstairs. She  j thought it -right to���������to tell me���������to ask  ! We���������before  binding herself to .him."  j    "Quite so, 'quite so."    Mr". 'Soames'  .voice was still exquisitely    soothing,  .but a clearer and clearer perception  'of the truth was dawning upon him,  and future possibilities began to loom  .larger before, his eyes.. He secretly  congratulated himself upon his saga^  city in coming to see Dynecourt upon  the flimsiest of excuses.  True",*he,had;  I obtained   no   information   about ?' Sir.  George Hernesley's  (Continued!.  The final words escaped him Involuntarily, but directly they wero  spoken a dull colour spread over his  face, and he fell silent. As a general  rule, he was a man of more than average self-control, but Dorothy's visit  with all the emotion it entailed���������tho  awakening of a whole train of new  ambitions and new hopes all founded  on what he knew to be a wrong foundation had combined to shake that  control. The man who sat talking to  Edward Soames this evening was not  quite tho same man who would have  talked to him had the. lawyer's visit  been paid a day earlier. This man  was harder, more ambitious, and--  more unscrupulous. That very afternoon Mr. Soames had learnt the  mime of Miles Hernesley's future  wife; Dynecourt's glib utterance of  the name of Dorothy opened to him a  ^new train of speculation��������� fresh  " Ihreads for the use of his busy fingers  seemed suddenly to dangle  Belves before his eyes.  "No other' heir lias turned up," he  said lowering his voice and drawing  his chair nearer to the other man;  "but���������1 have reason for thinking that  possibly���������only possibly, ��������� you understand���������Sir .George Hernesley's vaga-1  bond son may have married, and"���������  lie spread his hands out significantly  and shrugged his shoulders, adding  quickly, "I mention this in strict confidence. There is nothing proved,  nothing certain, ouly���������a possibility."  The fabric of Dynecourt's latest ambitions seemed about to fall round  him; his voice was husky as he asked���������  "You have told Miles Hernesley of  this possibility?"  "No, I have said nothing. It is all  too chimerical, too doubtful, and���������it.  seemed unfair to put such an idea as  this into his mind when he already  has so much to go through. One of  my reasons for coming to you to-day  was to consult you as to the wisdom  of troubling him with these���������possibilities at all."  The glib lie fell from the lawyer's  lips with a perfect semblance of truth.  When he entered Dynecourt's door  "nothing" h"ad_be"en'"mpre"remote "from  his thoughts than the idea of taking  the doctor even thus imperfectly into  his confidence; but when it suited Mr.  Soames to tell a lie It was not his  habit to dally with truth; he told his  lie outright, with unabashed demeanour.  "Sir Miles is the kind of man who  would leave no stone unturned if In-  thought there was any doubt about  his inheritance."  "He would certainly spend the  whole fortune in hunting for a problematical heir," Mr. Soames answered dryly.  "And worry himself to death over  the rights and wrongs of.(ho affair,"  Dynecourt said thoughtfully his medical instincts for a moment' overpowering all meaner thoughts, "Any worry would be bad for him just, now,  but���������he is not tlio man to take a property that is not lawfully his:"  "Tho whole point is doubtful, quite  doubtful. It is only possible that  thoro may bo another hoir. Would  you advise me to put the possibility  before Sir Miles?"  "Good heavens, no!" Dynecourt  leaped from his-chair ond began to  pace the floor with feverish haste.  "Why, if you tell him, he���������will chuck  liio whole thing. Though I havo only  Boon him onco, I know ho Is ultra  ���������scrupulous: he would not keep tin  property an hour���������all his schomoH for  liolplng his wife, and his wife's people, would .full through. Ho would  Insist on ransacking tho wide world  for UiIh precious hoir���������and tho monoy  would bo squandered!"  "You aro acquainted with Miss Car-  nlaliH and hor family?"   Tlio lawyer's  ttntall eyes seemed to peer Into Dyne-  court's vory houI.  "i���������know   Mlfifi   C'lirstnlrs -- very  woll.   Sho nnd I���������tho fact Ih, wo "  Ho broko his sontonco offi short, but  tho astute lawyer tilled in tlio gups  without. dltllctilty.    ,  "I understand," ho mild gently, nnd  <lio sympathetic tone hud'a uootliliif,  rffoot upon tlio other man's fretted'  iipli'lf.  "Thoro In nothing between us���������now  " MIhh (Jiiratal��������� In engaged lo Sir Miles  llornosley."  All tho oxoltoniont nnd stress of  tho, flay concentrated Itself In tho  burst of fueling, nnd tlio Htudoiit of  Immunity who mil watching him, an a  Hpldor watches'a fly, follow oil tlio  ���������windings of hl������ mind with absolute  accuracy.  "You havo heard the provlshm of  Sir Miles' will?"  The calm voice noted an a calming  Influence upon Dynecourt.,  scapegrace son,  and it was a hope that Dynecourt  ! might have such information. . tjxab  | had led him to call oh :the surgeon.  But, en the other hand, a complete  new, Held, of enterprise had opened  before him; and he already began to  regard tho surgeon as a tool in his  capable hands.",  If Dynecourt married the rleh Sir  Miles' widow, he would havo a share  of tlie great property, which, as the  little lawyer knew, would by and bye  belong to Dorothy; and���������if���������he and  Dynecourt wero inextricably* joined  together in the���������supression of���������of���������  surmises, then���������somo of that vast  fortune could surely be / induced to  filter into his pockets ' Mr. Soames  was not afraid of stating his thoughts  crudely in his own mind, and, translated into speech his thoughts in  Dynecourt's consulting-room would  have run very closely on the lines  abovo Indicated. Hut he was far too  clever'to press a victim unduly. After his last sympathetic utterance, he  rose slowly,- and changed his tone  from sympathy to briskness.  "I have no right .to.Jake up any  more of your time," he said. "1 ought  them t0 apologise for having troubled you  at all. But I felt I must como to you  direct for confirmation of Sir Miles'  sad' story. And I felt, too, that it was  of ��������� parampunt importance that I  should ask for your opinion in the  other matter of which I have spoken."  "I am very glad to be of any use I  can,"-Dynecourt answered rather awkwardly, feeling as if he were being  dragged down from the heights into  the commonplace of everyday again.  "I understand that you consider it  would be a risk to Sir Miles' life- if I  ���������ahem���������mentioned to hiimthc chance  the remote chance, "of another heir  putting in an appearance:?"      "_'."_  Dynecourt- hesitated before he replied. A vision of Hernegley'B face  rose to his? mind. It almost. seemed  to his disordered fancy as though for  a moment the man himself stood" before him, He saw the open face, the  frank eyes that met his so straightforwardly; he heard the hearty ringing voice; and he knew that to such a  man the bare idea of fraud, of reigning, unlawfully in another's stead,  would be more abhorrent than death;  and in that moment of swift-thought,  the young surgeon's better self almost  reasserted itself. He was within an  aceof-saying to-the-lawyer --���������  "I will have no hand in hiding a  truth, or even a surmise. Hernesley  is a man who 'plays tlie game'���������and  so am I!" '.  -At the bottom of his heart he instinctively realised that by yielding  to Soames' insidious suggestion he  was deliberately putting himself on  the side of evil, and though he was  unable to grasp the lawyer's scheme,  the voice of his good angel prompted  him to bid Mr. Soames begone and  do his own dirty work alone.  But In that moment of hesitation he  fell. Ambition reasserted horBelf. it'  ho lifted a finger to prevent Miles  Hernesley from coming into his kingdom, the riches upon which already  he was building such vast hopes  would never bo hifl. Already he had  shown himself ready to sell tho woman ho loved for those same riches;  now���������it whimsically crossed his  mind���������he was equally willing lo sen  his soul! '     _, ,,  "To toll Ilornosloy tho truth would  cortalnly endanger his life," no  heard hlniRolf say slowly and distinctly. "My advice certainly is, that unless you can produce absolute proof  of tho existence of another heir, y,<u  ought to, keep silence." ,  "Thank you vory much for frankly  giving me an opinion." ���������"���������������������������_���������  Mr. Soames spoke us formally as 1C  ho had merely boon asking ordinal'}  medical advice, not at all as thoug'i  they two had entered Into a criminal  conspiracy.

Ha6 Succeeded  The Coronation of George V. at Delhi, the city of the Great Moguls, made  him heir and successor to their Imperial power, says . the English  Queen. The history of these his predecessors is one of strange contrasts.  First of the Great Moguls was Tamerlane, the mighty conqueror, a type  of overweening arrogance, unrestrained by any fear of God or man. In  Marlowe's drama he kills his son.Ca-  lyplias, for skulking from.the battle,  and with insensate' fury urges on the  captive kings who draw his chariot.  The sombro story is only relieved by  tho tenderness of the; fierce 'wa-rior  for his wife Zenocrate, and his bitter  grief when she is lost to him by dea'h.  In wild exultation at the Conquest  of Western Asia, towards the end of.  the 11 th century, Tamerlane descended with his victorious hordes on ihe  plains of northern India. In feeble  helplessness. Mahmud sat still in his  palace trusting vainly to the old proverb:���������"It is a far cry to Delhi." - '  Amid scenes of indescribable horror  the city was taken, but Tamerlane  came as destroyer, not as founder..He  returned to Samarkand'to die, leaving  the-Empire of the Moguls'in India to.  be established one hundred years later by Babar, his great descendant.  Babar-the Adventurer was the most  fascinating of his race. Poet, philosopher, artist and musician, he was  skilled in the :ore of nature ,a,nd .in  the knowledge of men.-' Withal .'lie  set himself to become a strong, military leader and chose Tamerlane "as  W- evam*.}e. .It was' in the Punjab  that he met the Rajah Sanga, "the old  Lion "of the Rajputs, minus an eye and  an arm and lame of one leg," and won  that great victory of India over Hin-  dooism by which was achieved the  great Empire of the Great Moguls in  India.  His -ambition accomplished Babar  lived for three years at the palace of  Agra, ruling his'newly acquired country with justice and severity. No romance threw its glamor over Barbar's  union with his wife. All his affection was lavished on his three daughters, Rose-face, Rose-blush and Rose-  bodyrand-on-his-Bon-Humayon,-for  whom he is said to have given his  life. As the young man lay sick,at  Agra, the leeches declared that, he  could only be saved by" the mercy of  God and at the cost of some supreme  sacrifice. Whereupon the father exclaimed:���������  "I can give my life! It is the dearest thing on earth to my son."  Standing by the be"d he. said earnestly, "On me be thy sufferings."  His desire was granted, his son recovered, but Barbar died and was buried in tho pleasant gardens of Kabul.  Could be Used In Winter If Built to  Fit Sledge Tracks     .  Automobiles of suitable construction  could be used in the.Yukon. Local  tests in the last two years In all kinds  qf weather have proved that-the gasoline does not congeal in the cold weather.  Two years ago a large automobile  was used' successfully in Dawson and  on suitable country roads. Last winter  the White iPas's and Yukon ��������� Route  Company, .which operates a 320-mile  stage line in winter between White  Hors4> and Dawson, tried an,automobile, but it did not prove satisfactory,  as the automobile's guage was much  wider than that of.the .sleds which  they wero using and the sled track  could not bo use.d. .  The snowfall in. the Yukon basin  between-the first of October and the  last of April���������usually about two feet.  ���������remains on the ground until melted  by the sun "in tho spring. By midwinter tho track is worn down in the  snow by these narrow gauge sleds  ��������� until tho banks on cither side aro IS  to-24 Inches high, making It difficult,  if not impossible, for a wide-gauge  vehicle of any kind to pass over the  road.'  .There being no blizzards and little  wind In the winter in the Yukon Valley there are no snowdrifts to contend with, except on tlmberless ridges. ..The roads usually have low and  even grades and were they of suitable  width "would be well suited for motor  vehicles. These roads or trails,"were  originally made fifteen to twenty-five  .inches wide, to accommodate the dog  sled.  When horses took the place of dogs  these trails were -widened to accommodate the "double-ender" one-horse  sled, which is long and narrow, with  tlie runners turned, up at both ends  to save reversing the sled, which is  difficult to do on such narrow roads  when turning back. In recent years  some, of these roads have been widened for the. use of wagons in summer, over 'which heavy loads are  drawn by., t,wo, four and six horses.  If some ' motor-vehicle company  would construct a" car of the width of  the sled'now in use in this country, .It  could be iised to great advantage  throughout tlie whole Yukon Valley for  speedy ;travel in conveying mails, pas-:  senge'r's and freight. ��������� -The time now"  occupied by Btag'e between White  Horse and Dawson is five to eight  days, with relay stations at"'20-mile Intervals, while an automobile should  make tl?e journey at any time in the  Giildren Often Need * ^r^-r?

"These plains," writes Mr. Spafford, "naturally bring lo  mind the connection of the Dead Sea'  with Sodom and Gomorrah, the 'cities  of the plain,', that were overthrown.  They have been variously placed on  every side of the Sea. ���������  "These plains and the small oasis  at Engedi are tho only points where  life of any kind and water are to be  found. Engedi, our first' stopping  place,' is the only spot, on 'the West  side whoro fresh water is to be had.  This evidently was a litle. paradise in  tire time of Solomon, and is frequently'  mentioned in the Old Testament.  "Tho cliffs on the west sido of the  sea which' form an almost unbroken  wall, excepting for tho rugged torrent  beds, and which vary from 300 to  1,000 feet In height, are all of limestone, whereas on tho east side of tho  Uako the' formation is ontlrely sandstone of oxquislto hues.

'Twas  purely a matter of skill, which all  might attain if they willed.  In Loss Angeles, California, there is  an evident belief that what is sauce  for the gander)s equally sauce for the  goose. - The announcement is made  that a course of matrimony, has been  included in the ��������� curriculum of the  Gardens Agricultural High School.  According to^a despatch to the "New  York World,''-five classes of girls are  daily taking advantage of instruction  in courtship,, matrimony, the care of  babies, mother craft and domestic  science.        v       . ���������  "It is" planned," we read, "that boys  in Los Angeles shall be permitted to*  take the course next year,'but some  doubt is expressed about the need of  this. It is regarded that the 'female  of the species' will be so adept in the  hotter of courtship and matrimony  by .the end of the year that she will  have little difficulty in imparting her  knowledge to the less deadly male.  / "The' girls .aro taught how to deport  'lheniselves"during"courtship, "ana-in-  structed in' household management,  house, dieties, housekeeping accounts, dressmaking, millinery, and  even in such practical matters as how  plumbers are supposed to do their  work and how much they should be  paid."  A Legal Distinction  A long-winded,-prosy counsellor was  arguing a technical case recently before one of the judges of the supremo  court. He had drifted along in susli  a desultory.way that it was hard to  keep track of what he was trying to  present, and the judge had just vented a very suggestive yawn.  "I sincerely trust' that I am not trespassing unduly on tho time of' 'this  court," said the lawyer, with a suspicion of .sarcaHin'in his voice.  "There "is; some ��������� difference," tbe  judge quietly observed, "between trespassing-on tlmo, and encroaching on  eternity."   ���������  fOD ' ATLANTIC  ft  S.teOYAElMAlU^  MESSES  T&fe'.r  Weekly _ Sailings    to    and    From  Liverpool.   -  Prepaid Passages .

CURED 0TEP1LEPSY  A Case That Should Bring Hope to  Other Sufferers.  ��������� Epile.psy is one of the most serious  troubles that afflicts the human race.  This trouble is also known as "falling sickness" or "fits." Tlip patient  suddenly loses consciousness and  falls. The muscles become rigid and.  there is a twitching of the face and  limbs, sometimes accompanied by frothing of the mouth. The-convulsion Is  followed by "a deep sleep, varying In  duration. In the early stages the attack  mav only occur at intervals of several months," but.as the disease progress,  es tbey become move aiid more ��������� frequent, the patient becomes debilitated  and the mind weakened. Epilepsy .is  generally regarded* as , incurable, but'  taken In "its earliest stages -��������� has in  many cases been" cured by Dr. Williams' Pink ��������� Pills, which enrich the  blood, strehgthett,tlie'system., thus enabling it to resist tlie progress of the  disease. "The following case will be  of interest to any,who. suffer from this  terrible malady. ~ Mrs. John Mather,  Bancroft; Ont.,- says: "My little son,  Clivc, at the age of five was stricken  with spasmsof fits and despite alLwe  did for him,- for' the, next, five .years  was-af flictcd-with- them,,, apparently,  ���������growing, worse.'' He was under the  care, at various times, of five, different doctors, but they did him no good.  He was growing worse all the time,  until he got so bad that- ho would  sometimes- have twelve .of these  spasms In twenty-four hours.'I sent  him to the Sick Children's Hospital,  where they pronounced tho trouble epilepsy, but did nofholp him. -Later  he was treated by a .specialist, .but  to no avail. I was almost In despair  when my mother advised mo to give  him Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I got the  pills and gave them to him, strictly  following the directions as tp diet. He  continued taking- the pills fer several  menths, the' spasms gradually coming leBS frequent, and with- less severity, and finally they ceased altogether.  It* is now about two years since ; he  took the .last.of the pU!s, and ho has  'not bad a fit In that time, and Is now  as woll and strong as any other boyB  of his ago. I have great reason to bo  grateful for what the pills, havo done  for him. and hope this' may bo of  vnlno to some other Bufforor."       ���������  These pills aro sold by all modlciuo  dialers or may bq had by mall nt BO  conts a box or six boxes tor *2.B0  from The Dr. Williams' Medicino Co.,  Brockvllle, Ont. .
