Bhe  Riverman  By STEWART  EDWARD  WHITE  m*m**%t. IMt, by the McCHm Cm*  * mm*.   Co������yri������ht. 1907. IMA. by  Stewart mAmatm White  (Continued.)  THK first season of tbe Boom  compan. was most successful.  Its prospects for tho future  were bright. The drive hnd  been delivered to Its various owners  at a price below what It bud cost them  eeverally and without the necessary  attendant bother. Therefore tbe loggers were only too willing to renew  tbelr contracts for another year. This  did not satisfy Newmark, however.  "What we want." be told Orde. "is a  charter giving us exclusive rights on  the river and authorizing us to ask  toll. I'm going to try aud get one out  of the legislature."  He departed for Lansing as soon as  the assembly opened and almost im-  "What we want is a charter."  mediately became lost in one of those  fierce struggles of politics uot less bitter because concealed. Heinzman was  already on the ground. Newmark had  the shadow of right on his side, for he  applied for the charter on the basis uf  the river improvements already put in  by his firm. Heinzman wanted the  improvements already existing condemned and sold as a public utility to  th������ highest bidder, Uo offered further  guarantees us to future improvements.  In addition were othor and more potent arguments proffered behind closed  doors. Many cases resolved themselves  Into a bald question of cash. Others  demanded dlplomncy. Jobs, fat contracts, business fnvors, Influence, wero  all.flung out freely, bribes as absolute  an though stamped with tlio dollar  mark. Newspapers all over tbo state  woro pressed into ��������� service, Among  'these delicate nnd complicated cross  lewrroutn Newmark moved silent, cold,  ���������ecret. lie seemed to understand thorn,  tp jplay wltb tlicm, to manipulate tnera  as elements of the game.  The fight endured through most of  the first half of the session. At tho  last, however, tho bill passed the board,  The company hud Its charter.  "It's cost us plenty, anyway," Ordo  Btild when the charter bill became a  law,    "Tho proposition's got n  load  ,on it,   It will tnist. uh n long tlmo to  get out of debt,   Tho rlvor driving  "Newmark A Onlc incims mjTtu!t/itn_ lo  to time fellows miu,"  won't pny quite ko big as we thought  it would," he conclrtded.ii with a rueful littlo fnugh.

Wo want to look nround for some  <!n.������������f������. nf nur own There** where the  big money Is. And perhaps wo cnn  buy n schooner or two and go Into tbo  carrying trade. Newmnrk & Ordo  moans something to theso fellows  now,"  j tated by the temporary value of the  improvements goi.il years could hardly  fall to bring good returns. This, It  will be remembered, wns a stock com-  ; pany. With tbe profits from that busi-  ! ness the two men embarked ou a sep-  i arate copartnership.  j Orde lived at ease in a new house  I of some size, surrounded by grounds.  I lie kept two servants. A blooded  I team of horses drew the successor to  ! the original buckboard, Newmark  j owned a sail yacht of live or six tons,  j in which, quite solitary, ho took his  I only pleasure. Bath were considered  I men of substance and property, as in.  , deed they were.  Immediately after the granting ol  the charter to drive the river the partners had offered them au opportunity  of acquiring about 30,000.000 feet oi  timber remaining from Morrison fi  Daly's original holdings. Orde finally  completed the purchase on long tlma  notes. Below tho booms they erected  a mill. The following winter Orde  spent ln the woods. By spring he bad  banked about G.000.000 feet  At the end of tho fifth year the opportunity came to get possession oi  two lake schooners. Orde at once suggested the contract ,.for n steam barge.  Towing was then In Its infancy. Orde  thought that a slenm barge could bo  built powerful enough not only to carry its own hold and deck loads, but to  tow after It the two schooners. New-  mark agreed with him. Thus the firm  went into the carrying trade. The  most important acquisition was that  of the northern peninsula timber.  Most operators called tho white pine  along and back from the river inexhaustible. But Orde saw the time not  far distant when the world would be  compelled to look elsewhere for ita  lumber, and he turned his eyes to the  almost unknown north. After a long  investigation he purchased 300.000,000  feet. This was to be paid for mostly  by the firm's notes, secured by Its other property.  To Carroll. Orde was always the  same big, hearty, whole souled boy  she had first  learned to love.  She had all his  confidence.  Bobby had  turned out a  sturdy, honest  little fellow, witb  more than a  streak of his  mother's charm  and intuition.  "I want to give  him-a-H-t-he-  chance there is."  Orde explained  to Carroll. "A  boy ought to  start where his  father left off  and not have to  do the same  thing all over  again."  "Why don't  you let him continue your business?" smiled Carroll.  "By the time Bobby's grown up thia  business will all be closed out," replied Ordo seriously.  Threo years aftor the conversation  last mentioned, which would have  made Bobby Just eight, Orde came  home on a summer evening, his face  alight with satisfaction.  He believed ho had found the opportunity, twenty years distant, for which  he hnd been looking so long.  Oide and his wlfo sat together on  the top step.   Uc slipped bis arm about  hor.   Thoy breathed deep of tho happiness that filled their lives.   Two shadowy   figures  defined   themselves   ap-  pronchlug up tlio concrete walk,  "IIcllo!" called Ordo.  '���������Hello!" a volco responded.  "Taylor and Clara,"  said Ovdo to  Carroll,  with  satisfaction,  "just  the  man I wanted to see."    Tho lawyer  and bis wlfo mounted tho steps.  Clurn Taylor stopped short and considered Ordo for u moment,  "Lot its nwny," she said seriously to  Carroll.   "My prophetic soul tolls mo  thoy nro going to talk business, and if  uny moro business is talked In my  prosenco l shall expire.   Come, Carroll; let's wander down tho street and  boo Minn Hcliumum."  Tho two snuntori'd nwny,  "Look hero, Taylor," broko ln Ordo  abruptly; "you told mo tho other dny  you hnd fifteen or twenty thousnnd you  wanted to plnco somewhere"  "Yob," replied Taylor.  "Woll, 1 bollovo 1 hnvo Just tho proposition."  "Whnt ts It?"  "Cnllfornln *phio," replied Ordo.  "Cnllfornln ptno."  repented Taylor,  "California's n long wny off, nnd thoro  Is no market, Is thoro?"  "It's cheap," replied Ordo succinctly. "I don't sity tt will bo good for  immedlnte roturus, but in twenty or  thirty Venrs tt ought to pny big on a  small Investment mndo now."  Taylor laughed.  "Lnugh nil you plonse," rejoined  Orde, "bur I toll you Mlclilu.ui nnil  Wisconsin pine is doomed. Twenty or  thirty yearn from now thero won't bo  any whllo ptno for snle."  "NoiiHonHol" objected Tnyior, "You're  lili'KHlg Wild."'  "AH right," snld Ordo quietly. "Well,  whnt do you think of Indlnnn ns n  good field for timber Investment?"  "Indlnnn!" cried Tnyior,, amazed.  "Why, thorc's no timber thoro; It's n  prnlrlc."  "Thero used to tie. And nil the  southern Michigan fnrm bolt wns tlm-  bored, nnd around hen*.

Orde cut him short, "the  big things are for the fellow who can  see far enough ahead."  "What kind of a proposition have  you?" asked Taylor after a pause.    ,  "I can get 10.000 acres at an average  pride of $8 an acre," replied Orde.  "about 400,000.000 feet in timber."  "That's about 20 cents a thousand."  Orde nodded.  "And of course you couldn't operate  for twenty or thirty years, and there's  WHAT'S LIKE HIM?  "The big things are for the fellow who  tan tee far enough ahead,'',,  your interest on your money and taxes  and the risk of tire and"��������� *  "Of course," agreed Orde impatiently, "but you're getting your stumpago  for 20 cents, and in thirty years it  should be- worth a dollar, and a half."  At the present time-sugar pine such  as Orde described would cost $3.50  to H.  Taylor relapsed into thought  , "Look   here,  Orde,"   tie  broke out  finally, "how old aro youV"  ���������Thirty-eight   Why?"  "How much timber have yon in  Michigan?"  "About 10,000.000 that we've picked  up on the river since the Daly purchase and 300,000.000 in the northern  peninsula."  "Which will take you twenty years  to cut and make you a million dollars.  Then why this investment thirty years  ahead?" ,  "It's for Bobby," explained Orde simply. "A man likes to <. have his son  continue on in his business. 1 can't"do  Jt_herej_bujt__ther^_i_can. it would  take fifty years to~cut~thaF~pine,~a"nd"  that .will give Bobby a steady income  and a steady business."  "Bobby will be well enough off anyway. He won't have to go Into business."  Orde's brow puckered.  "I know a man. Bobby is going to.  work. A man is not a success in life*  unless he does' something, and Bobby  is going to be a success. . Why, Taylor," he ��������� chuckled, "the little rascal  fills the wood box, for a cent a time,  and that's all the pocket money he  gets. He's saving now to buy a thousand dollar boat. I've agreed to pool  In half. At his present rate of income  I'm safe for about sixty years yet"  (To be continued.)  And That's No Jo Wo.       -T;.

The West Mourns   the Lose   of   Dr.  Lundy oi Portage,  Dr. Frank B. Lundy, oi Portage la  Prairie, died n tew weeks ago. A '  short time before, his death he drove  fifty miles ncross prairie,"got caught  in a blizzard, and slept all night under his upturned cutter. Such nn ex-  nerience was'no novelty to Dr. Lundy.  He belonged to the swift-passing type  of prairie doctor thnt went the trails  before there wero railroads. In all  Manitoba there was no character better known, . He . went to Portage in  1882 when the caravans of Red River  carts came honking tjp from Fort  Garry en route to Edmonton, Battle-  ford nnd Calgnry. Portage, now the  junction point of four railways, three  of. them trnn_continentaU, was th������n  the point wh������ro the old trails diverged. Dr. Lundy knew every trail, every  couloe and eyery hill in that part of  Manitoba. He wns a young man whon  he started trailing; had spent a short  while in Bruce County, Ontario, after  graduating from Trinity in 1880. In  the twenty-seven years of his trailing  he saw .many changes; more trans'  formations in the country than in the  science of medicine. He was a characteristic "old-timer," . who knew as  much about Indians as nbout white  men.. To doctor up a sipk man best  of a hundred miles away was.part if  *Dr. L'uhdy's practical religion. He  was never known to send a patient a  bill; and he was never known to need  money.  TBut one morning this "Dr. Mc-  Clure," of the prairie, was found dead  in his office. With a score uf doctors  in the town where once his had been  the only, shingle,'he just quit���������and  the long trails of Manitoba will never  feel the click of his. horse's ��������� hoofs  again.  The citizens of Portage were deeply interested in Dr. Lundy. There is  much talk of a handsome ftone memorial in the form of a statue, to  adorn a public square in the town. If  this act of benevolence is carried out.  it will be but a feeble echo of the long  line of benevolences practiced unostentatiously by Dr. Lundy.  The late doctor was born at  Shakespeare, Ont., eldest son of Dr.  J. B. Lundy, once of Preston. Ont.  He was educated at the old grammar  school at Gait, Ont. He entered  Trinity Medical School, Toronto, in  1877; graduated Fellow of Trinity,  and M.B., Toronto, in 1880; passed  examination for license to practice in  Ontario that year. He practiced a  short time in Bruce County, Ont..  going to Portage la Prairie in 1882.  He lived there continuously until his  death. Member of the Manitoba  _Medical_JVwociation.;_ he ' was nlso  past president of "the "College lif" PHy"  sicians and Surgeons of Manitoba.  Three Macdonalds In the Senate.  In the Senate there are threo veterans of the Clan Macdonald, whose  ���������combined ages total 239 years. There,  is Andrew Archibald, from Charlotte-  town; who has seen 82 summers and  as many winters. William is a political stripling of 79 years. He hail-  from Cape Breton, and can address  the Upper House in Gaelic. Lastly  comes William John, of Victoria, B.C..  who is 78-and has a son old enough  to be a oommander in the new navy.  The Hon. William John gave his colleague a rude shock recently when  he suggested that the only thing the  matter with the Senate was that the  majority of its members had become  too wenriod with the burden of years  to take nny interest in public affairs.  This humble expression of opinion  was called forth by a motion of Senator David, himself 71 years of age,  who, when he is not writing pnmph-  lets eulogizing Sir Wilfrid Laurier, or  acting as clerk of the City Council  of  Montrenl, is  trying to  solve  the  Eroblom of bettor distribution of work  etween the Commons and the Sen-  ate. Mr, David, therefore, moved that  a committee of both Houses be np-  pointed to discuss this matter, but  tho chnmpion of "more work for, the  money" was obliged to go nbout his  task with that diplomacy brought to  a high state of perfection during his  long experience with the alderman of  tho metropolis.���������Saturday Night*  Just Like the Men,  The discussions of the quosUixn of  ���������votes (or women which have taken  placo in Toronto of late ns n result of  tho visit of Miss Sylvia Pnnkhurst  rocnlls a story'of a retort onco mndo  liy Sir Wilfrid Laurier to a member  of a party of Indies which.waited upon him aB a deputation, asking for  several things.

Tom Brown'f Famous Schoolmate  Is  a Professor In England.  Rev. Chancellor Bulkeley Owen  Jones, who, ns stated in The Daily  Mail is the original Slogger Williams,  one of the heroes of the great fight described in "Tom Brown's Schooldays,"  gave hia version of the famous encoun.  ter to a representative of that journal  and, incidentally, had some remarks  to make on the life of the public  schoolboy of the 'thirties and 'forties.  The changellor, who is now in his  eighty-eighth year, is a mun ot fine  physiqus, hale and heurty, with ail  hia faculties unimpaired. After a life  of useful service he has retired to  pass the evening of his life in the  beautful little town of Deganwy, en  tho banks of Conway River, one of  the beauty spots v,f his native country.  "Whether the public schoolboy, of  to-day is as hardy as of yore 1 can-'  not say." he remarked. "I urn so old  that my knowledge of public schools  of the present day is limited, but we  were certainly not pampered at Rugby. I had to travel there on the box-  seat of the o|d stage, aud I remember  that on ono occasion I got so cold  that I nearly fell off Uie seat. Whenever I went home at holiday time I  paid $20 journey money to Bangor  by old Thomas, as related in the book.  Other boys had longer distances to go  ���������some to Scotland.  "In my time at'Rugby the only  places available during the daytime  for washing the hands and face was  the venerable and much-respected  pump in the quadrangle. There was a  penalty attached to non-ablution before early school, and at was that  the offender should be placed under  the said pump and the delect remedied by a deluge on the back of the  neck. This remedy.was applied in a  good' many instances "without injurious , effects, but in the case of a  Welsh boy named Williams the punishment was so severe, the weather  and water being so cod, that his circulation was stopped and Williams  well-nigh ceased to exist.'  "Our football matches in those days  were much more strenuous than they  are -nowadays. We, of the School-  house, about seventy in number, played the rest of the school, about 300.  We used to 'hack' one another in a  most ferocious manner, and I have  marks on my shins to this day which  I gained at Rugby more than seventy  years ago. These games Were excellent training for the pugilistic encounter which were then not uncommon."  Describing his fight with Tom  Brown, "the chancellor gave a version  somewhat different from that of the  Rev. Augustus Orlebar, His opponent,  -who-said-that-neither-of-the-parties-  could claim the-victory.  "What happened was this," said  the chancellor. "It was a rainy day.  and a lot of boys were gathered in  the.Schoolhouse.,hall. Orlebar, was  teasing a little fellow, and the little  fellow said to me 'Spank him, Jones.'  I caught him a rather sharp tap; he  lost his temper and knocked me down.  At once the boys in the hall shouted,-  'Fight! Fight! Jones and Orlebar!'  There was no help for it, and we had  a rare set-to. My own opinion is that  I won, because when Arnold came and  caught us Orlebar had fainted.  "My face was so disfigured that the  doctor did not know me. When he  found out who it was he gave me a,  double punishment, first for talking  in chapel and second for fighting. I  had to write out 500 lines of Virgil.  Orlebar waa a mighty hitter and  punished mo severely, but I was in  the better condition at the finish, the  reason being that I had just been out  twice with the Big Side hare and  hounds. It was a fine sport for keep-  in.j a man in condition. Orlebar and  I wore tho best of friends both before  and after the flgtit:"     '  Of Tom Hughes himself tho chancellor had little -to say. "He was  rather a quiet Ind, and not very popular," he remarked. "I, think it is a  mistake to assert- that Dean, Stanloy  was the pro.totypo of little 'Arthur.'  Tho character was made up from a  number of bays," '.'  Pop Qo  100,000 Weaiels.

Face Sores and Eruptions  Zam-Buk Will  Quickly Heal.  The approach of Spring finds many  people with ' unsightly face sores,  eruptions, boils, etc. In this connection Zam-Buk is invaluable. An  illustration' of the way in which it  cures even tho most serious nnd  chronic cases of- eruptions, sores nnd  ulcers, is provided by Mr. R. H. Barker, of Glencairn, Ont.   He says:  "I never could have believe'd that  any remedy could cure so quickly and  at the same time bo effectively 'as  Zam-Buk- cured me.' My face began  to-be covered with a kind of rash,  which itched and irritated.' This rash  then turned to sores, which dis-  charged freely and began to spread.  I -first tried one thing and then  another, . but nothing ' seemed to do  me much good, and the eruption got  iworso\,and worse until my face was  just covered with running sores.  "Apart from the pain (which was  very bad), ��������� my face was such a terrible sight that I was not fit to go out.  This was my state when someone advised me to-try Zam-Buk. I got a'  supply and within a week I could  see that the sores were rapidly healing. A little longer, and Zam-Buk  had healed them completely, and my  skin was as clear as if I had never  hnd a sore. We shall never again be  without Zam-Buk in the house,"  Zam-Buk is unequalled for Spring  rashes, eruptions, children's sores,  scalp diseases, ringworm, ulcers, abscesses, eczema, tetter, piles, cuts,  burns, bruises, and skin injuries and  diseases penorally. All druggists and  stores sell at 50c. box, or post free  from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, for price.  Refuse harmful imitations. Zam-Buk'  Soap, which may be "had from any  druggist at 25c. a tablet, should b'e  used instead of ordinary soap in all  cases of eruptions and skin diseases.  ��������� "The moohfehine distillery has  moved ten miles further."- "Great  sakes!" exclaimed the colonel.

Uus, MaIInI lite,  Cutlouw Uuult on tlii ouo ol ikln uud KCAlp,  Ernest Thompson-Seton  Tells  of  an  Adventure With a Camera.  The camera is gradually replacing  th������ rifle as a weapon fo: sportsmen.'  It does not bag the dead carcasses of  beaita, but it secures what is more  valuable, a record of their appearance  and habita in the living state. The  vory act of making tho photographic  "shot" also discovers traits in tho  wild' subject that a powder-and-bail  hunter would never suspect. Eruest  Thompson-Seton tells in Scribner's of  a surprising revelation concerning the  lynx. One of those supposedly savage animals had been driven from  cover and cornered by Seton and two  Indians.  Ho  faced  nbout  at bay, .says  tbe  writer, growling savagely, thumping,,  his little bobtail from side to side and  protending ho was going to spring on.  ui.   1 took photograph number two  at  twenty-live  yards.    Ho  certainly  did look fierce, but I thought 1 know  the creature aa well as the men who  wcro*backing up.  I retired, put a uow  film in placo and said:  o"Now, Preble, I'm going to walk up  to, that 'lynx, "and get a close photo.  If he jumps for me, and he .may; there  is nothing can save my, beauty but  you and thiit gun?' V  Preble,, with characteristic .loquacity, said, "Go ahead." <'.'  Then I stopped and. began slowly  approaching the desperate creature we  he������d at bay. His eyes were glaring  green, his ears were back, his small  bobtail kept twitching from side to  .side and his growls grew=harder and  hissier as I nenred him. At fifteen  feet he gathered his legs under him  as for a spring, and 1 pressed tho'  button, getting .number three.  Then did the demon of ambition enter into my heart, and lead me into  peril. The lynx at bay was starving  and desperate. He might spring at  me, but I believed that if he did he  would never reach me alive. knew  my man���������this nerved me���������and I said  to him, "I'm not satisfied; I want  him to fill the finder. Are you ready?"  "Yep."  So I crouched lower and came still  nearer and at twelve feet made number four. For somo strange reason,  now, tlie lynx seemed less angry than  he hud boon.  "He didn't fill the finder. I'll try  again," was my next. Then, on my  knees, I crawled tip, watching the  finder until it was full of lynx. 1  glanced at the beast; he was but eight  feet away.    I focused and ��������� fired.  And now, oh, wonder! that lynx no  longeT seemed annoyed; he had ceas-  ?ed. all  growling  and  simply ��������� looked  bored.  We  stood aside;  he saw his chance  amLdashod _for th_e t&ll_ timber.

Thompson was the only loy available,  nnd was apprenticed to the company  for aeveh years, and was Bent to Fort  (Jnurchill,  , Thompson spent fourteen years with  tho "ancient and honorable" company, and during theso two terms of  sorvico he surveyed most of the river������  tributary to Hudson Bay from the  Rout.li .nnd'west, going ns,.far as. the  oast end of Lnko Athabaska.  .In 1707-8 ho made a long journey  through all the principal water  courses of tho northwest.

Canada Cement Company, Limited.  Annual Report of the Board of Directors.  TO THE SHAREHOLDERS: '}  ~~ Yd\TrT)ifectoTs���������bie^  of the Canada Cement Company,. Limited, as of the 31st December, 1910.  In presenting the Balance Sheet, we call attention. to the Company's strong financial position  as disclosed by the large amount of cash on hand, and other quick assets, and the comparatively  small amount of current liabilities. After providing for interest on our Bonds and Dividends on our  Preferred Stock for the year, we have'been able .to set up reserves' for depreciation, extraordinary repairs and renewals, bad debts, etc., and carry forward a substantial balance to Surplus Account. >. ;  The consumption of cement during the past year wns not as large as anticipated. Our business  also suffered on account of- the Railways not being able to meet our full requirements for cars during  the heavy  shipping  season;  consequently, we  carry over from last year 781,116 barrels of cement.  Early in 1910 the price of our product was fixed at a lower price than cement had ever been  sold for in Canada, excepting for a short period in 1909, but your Directors are pleased to state  that tho anticipated savings in manufacturing and distributing our products were such that they wore  able to still further reduce this price.  We trust, when you consider the above mentioned conditions, and also the fact that during 1910  our plants wore only operated to 57.G per cent, of their capacity, the profits shown will be uatisfactory  to tlio Shareholders.  During tho current year we loolc for a larger natural demand,, which demand will' bo stimu-  latod by continuing to manufacture n strictly high grade article, and by selling it at tho lowest pos-  sible price. This anticipated increase will enable us to operate our plants to better advantage than in  the pnst, hut wo do not expect that the demand will be sufficient to onablo us to put inlo operation  either of tho two plants which have boon idle since the organization of this Company. However, it ia  confidently expected that the increased demand,'and increased output, will result in further savings  in tho cost of manufacture and distribution, and it is tho policy of your Directors to givri your cub-  tomors tho bomoflt of those reductions,  Tho Shareholders' profits will depend on tho increased volume of tho Company's business, the  policy of the Company being the maintenance of such a'stable position as will insure regular and  uniform payments of interest on its bondH and dividends on its Proforrod Stock, and at the same time  bo in a position to withstand any unforeseen emergency that may arise consequent on business depression or otherwise, which condition naturally necessitates tho accumulation ef, and tbo maintenance  of.,,11 largo cash rosorvo.  It is also tbo policy of tbo Company to equalize tbo price of cement throughout Cnnadii in so  fur as tho physical, conditions mnko such possible, and. in furtherance of this polioy, your Directors  have arranged to purchase a silo nonr Winnipeg, on which thoy will croct, tbis your, a -mill to grind  clinker, whiob clinker will bo shipped from ono of our KaHtorn mills, The buildings, machinery, etc,  will bo planned so*that, Bhould it at any time in tbo future bo advisable, a Burning.

His home, a small log cabin,  stood,   with.two  others precisely  like It, in a-clearing.  The Browns' nearest neighbors llve^  four miles distant down the river, at a  settlement known as "Hopper's Clear-  in'." Travel was neither easy nor sale ln  'those days, and although Tom had  made the trip several times, he hnd'n.1-  ��������� ways gone under the protection of his  father or a neighbor. These events had  been red-letter days of fun and excitement to him, for there was always the  danger of capture by the Indians, who  Infested the region.  One sunny morning in spring two  white-faced men staggered into ��������� the  Brown cabin and silently^ kald Mr..  Brown on hie rough couch. To Tom's  terrified inquiries, they only said that he  had been set upon by ��������� an Indian and  that they had arrived upon,the scene  Just in time to prevent his being  scalped. It was their opinion, they said,  that the tribes were making ready to go  on the warpath, and they told' Tom he  had best barricade the cabin against  sudden attack. ���������   *  After they had gone, Tom made a brief  examination of his father's inert body.  He made up his mind that, although  there was no Immediate dariger, It would  -���������be-^by-far-safer-to-procure-a���������doctor.-  - Tom gat on the side of the pallet to  think. That there was a good doctor  at "Hopper's Clearin'," he knew., Hqw  lo reach' him was the question. The  men in the cabins were needed, every  one, to protect the women and children.  Tom listened anxiously to his father's  heavy breathing, ,and<<a< sudden brave  resolve came Into his heart. '  He reached for his father's ride, but  on second thought put It down again.  He kne.w that his aim was poor and  that It would be safer to go unhampered by a heavy rifle, trusting to the  swiftness of his legs Instead of'to  ���������weapons.  The lad crept to tho door, opened It  and closed it softly behind hlin. A  glance 'it the sun showed him that  tho day 'is well c������i its course. With  the peculiar long, swift,, easy stride  of the backwoods, the boy swung into  tho forest trail.

THE iron gates of the grim old cas-  Jtle by the sea swung open, and  through them passed an old, old-  woman and a little girl,  "Oh," said the child sadly, . "I'm so  lonely here I ' Can't we go1 down to tho  beach by ourselves and explore the  caves?"  '��������� "I should love it, my princess,"' said  the woman, "but we must not' forget  ,that ytour enemies are many" and dangerous. It would.be a very Imprudent  thing to do."  "All nice things ; are ;'. Imprudent,"  pouted the child.'''       '  ''  "I wish I were just an. ordinary girl  instead,of a princess." She stood looking out .to sea, when suddenly a twinkle  of mischief came into her blue eyes.  "I wish to go back to my room," she  said, "and lie down all by myself. I'm  very tired."  Full of anxiety that the child was Ul,  the nurse hurried her back to the castle.  Alone ln her room, the princess wriggled out of her fussy frock and donned  a simple-sailor .costume; then she tuck-  ed her despised curly hair under a  cap , and surveyed herself with satisfaction in the mirror. Quietly she slip- '  ped to the window and looked out; the  coast was clear.  It was the work of a moment for her  to climb on the window* sill and from  there-on to the strong Ivy, which was  thick as the branch of a tree with age.  Carefully but fearlessly she descended  to the earth. Suddenly, she stopped  short,' remembering that.every exit to  _the-beach��������� trdnw^th*-castle���������was~well_-  giuarded. ln a disappointed fashion  she turned to go back, when she re-  ,mernbered an old orchard behind the  lcitclien garden. She1 dodged round the  corner of ihe house and soon found  herself in the orchard,  Here  she had  a  jolly time  climbing  the trees  and running about.   Finally  . she came' to an old moss-grown rock,  and stood idly kicking it,  Suddenly and without warning it flew  back on grooves,  and she almost fell  Into  a   round  dark   hole;   she  started '  back,   but   a  moment  afterward  was  i bending eagerly 'over a shaky, decayed-  looking   ladder   which   led   downward,  Then  she  began   to descend.    As  her  weight   struck   the   seventh   step   she  , heard the stone,overhead roll back Into  place.   Evidently this was a mechanical urrangement.   The child now found  '   herself in almost total darkness, This  bothered hor until she .remembered tho  small electric lump ln the pocket of her,  suit,  Holding the contrivance high overhead, the child saw that she,' wiui in a  wide, uneven passagowny that seomed  to bo carved out of solid rock. Although It was dump and dark, she felt  no fear.  Sho had gono somo distance down tho  passage, when she was confronted by a  large door heavily bound with Iron.  Sotting down ber light, tho prlnooss  picked' up a sharp-edged atono ^and  t loosened the hard cniHt,of onrtlt,which  ���������hnd formed about the 'o'riiclcs,  Sho gave It ti final shove, and It swung'  croaking back.       ��������� !--  Tho child now found herself in a  Bquaro chamber,,,..,.  , Hor light, held high, cast quooi'aliad-  ows ovor the rooky walls and outllnod  In grotesque fnHhlon a chest In onn  corner. With an oxoliimiitlm of sui'-  prlBO, the princess Blurted toward It*  Sho tugged 'lit' tho lid until il Hew  up, disclosing to hor wldo oyeB tho  moat beautiful Jewelry, tho moHt wonderful vnwcH nnd voimola of gold and  Hllvor, curiously onrvon, she had ovor  soon, Faintly, Mio prlnooss roonllml old  , tnkfM of Die pirutOH who long ago had  stored tholr troiiHtire In tho ouvos along  .the, bench. Him realized that she hnd  probably Htiiinuiiid iiui'ohh tho soorot  envo of some ornolold soadog, who had  spent IiIh life In umuHHlng Ihu.so pi'ooloim  things and thon, perhaps, had gone to  his long sleep ln a watery grave before  having a chance to tell any one of Its  whereabouts. After a "time the princess realized that it was growing late,  that she would; be missed.  She went along'the passageway to  the ladder. When she' had reached  the top she realized that the stone  was too  heavy to roll back.  A' feeling, of suffocation almost  overcame her. She was'caught���������trapped in this underground world! A  thousand horrible thoughts crowded  hor mind. Suppose she should starve  to death, here in the midst of tho  pirate hoard!  Slowly tho princess descended "the  shaky ladder. Suddenly a thought  came to her: If this were a pirate  cave, it must have some entrance by .  way of thq sea. Perhaps one of the  caves on the beach was the outltJt.  At the far end of the treasure room  she found a door similar to that' by,  which she had entered. With might  and main the princess struggled until  it swung back. Scarcely had she time  to pass through, when It closed with a.  heavy thud. Startled, the princess  looked backj but what had beeh the  door now resembled a solid wall of  rock.  Curiously  she  turned' back  to And  '���������  where the door began and where, the  rock.      Her  search was  in  vain';  It  was a masterful piece of 'cleverness., ���������  Looking   down    the    corridor,    the  princess saw that it was very' much 'i  like that whjch she had passed leading  to   the   treasure   room;   but  the  ground   was   curiously   smooth -and  even  and  the  salt smell,,of  the" sea  struck her eager nostrils.   Her idea  was correct, the cavern gave on the  -  sea.    Eagerly ~ she   pressed   forward.   ���������  Soon 'she could hear the breaking of  waves on the rocky, beach; .then she  '  could see light,  like a pinpoint, far,'  away. ��������� '   -..  With a glad cry she ran forward,  but scon stopped ln dismay. At her  feet,  Inside   the  passage,   inside  the  Weak aiid Exhausted from fright  and weariness, her hands torn and  bruised with her struggles, the child  fell in a sobbing heap on the sharp,  rocky floor. Soon she_buried her head  in her arrfTS and sank into a deep,  dreamless sleep. When she awoke,  she realized that she hnd slept for  some hours. She lighted her electric  contrivance and' scanned, the cave  afresh. There were no doors or openings, save that through which she had  come.    Holding  tlie light high, the  child examined the ceiling. With a  beating heart she realized that It was  made of ,wood. Moreover, she could  dimly see a square trapdoor in one  corner. If she could but make out,  some way, to knock on it!  Going immediately underneath' It,  the princess could distinctly hear the  sound of voices and the scurrying of  many feet. Evidently there-Was some  excitement    In    progress    overhead.  French Fashion r.

Beating the Railroad.  Oklliahoma is about to acquire  a remarkable fainUv,    Mr; and  Mrs Frank Scott,  of Highland,  Kan., are seeking a location for a  home   somewhere   in the state  where they can obtain plenty of  land.   They will need it, for they  have not been married quite ten  yeats, aud are the parents of nine  teen children, all of them boys,  and thirteen of them living, They  hold the record on triplets,  hav-  iug five sets to their credit,  and  two sets ol twins.     All   of. the  j-thirteen boys living are   under  five years old. Mr and Mrs Scott  are the children of farmers living  near Highland.  Last fall, the Scotts deciding  that they must find more land-,  went to Alberta, Canada. They  were not satisfied there and returned. On the return trip all  records in the history of railroading were broken. Mrs Scott and  her thirteen children all rode oil  one first-class passenger ticket.  At Omaha the conductor made a  vigorous protest.  "Madam,-you cannot carry a  whole Sunday school along with  you on-thatone-ticket^-and you  need not tell.me these are all  yours. You will have to pay fare  for some of them."  ''The rules of this railroad  -company provide that a child  under five years of age may ride  free when accompanied by its*  parents on .a first class ��������� ticket,  don't they?" retorted Mrs. Scott.  "They do, but you will have  to show me."  Then Mrs Scott dug down into;  her valises and brough t out the.  family bible, iu which were rei  corded, the names and ages of  each of the children.
