"Onen���in lhj King's name!" it said.
"The police!" lu- gasped, and looked round for seme way of escape.
���Helder did 'iot lose his .nerve. The

at the rear of the building. He led the
way swiftly across the tiled door of
V>e kitchen to the rear of the premises.*
;He took a c.uuious survey from the
bay window. There was nobody in

ped out, the two men following. They
gained tlie shed.
"Jump in!" said Holder-

Gold had seen the car vanish. He

"Theve is one at Royston," said
the doctor; "your car will get yju

There was no time to be lost; he
must communicate at once \yith tne
police and secure the arrest of Haider.
He had sufficient evidence now.
He sat down to a little table in tne
stone room below and wrote rapid'.y.
He was in che midct of his messa-re

"There's r ca. coming down tne

Ho left the half-written message on

man whose walk was strangely fauiil-
a.  to Gold.
"Bell!" he gasped,.'
Without a word Comstock Bell
strode into the house. In the light
thrown by a hanging lamp h'.s face
was pale and drawn.
"Where's my wife?" he asked.
"I'm expeotlig her," said Gold, In
A shadow,of alarm passed over the
voting man's face.
"Where have you���?" began  Go^l.
'.'I will tell you later." said the
other, hurriedly. '-I passed my wife's
car four m:les on the road; it had
broken down and the chauffour told
me she nnu.t h-we gone on here. Could
she mave missed the way?"
Gold shook his head.*
"I don't thi.ik It's. possible. 'She
may have gone back, to London. I
will send this message off by one of
the men and go back to town with you
in your car."
"Where's Maple?" asked Comstock
"He's upstairs," answered .the other
"' "Is he ueac'?" Comstock Bell's voice
was sharp, his face went suddealy
"No, lia's not dead," said Gold, "but
I'm afraid he won't last long."'

The doctor shook his head.
"Then I must speak to liim," sa'-*
Comstock Bell, decidedly. "Come

Tlie three men went upstairs 'o-

What Makes the Crest on tlieJ Wave?
When the wioft blows over the aea
it forms waves that follow on In "Uie"
.direction of :hy wind. The water in
the waves themselves moves '���eaby
ii��* and down aud down and backwards
and forwaids with a very slight. move-
ment In a , iorward direction. Tho
stronger the wind- that makes the
waves, the higher will the crest on
the waves be, the deeper the ho.lows
between them, the greater their 'ength
and the faster will they move forward. The crest is formed by the action of tho wlr.d on the mass of tno
wave whe'- tho wa.ve ceases to nijvo
fbnvaid. The movement of the wave
is (|iiib npan Jrom the movement of
tho whole mass of water, as we.may
see on th'- mr'ace of a river whe-n tne
wind Is blowing against the direction
of the stream. In thnt case the wind
willjorro wav-s in its own direction.
The same thing may bo noticed at
the mouth of a harbor, if tho wind is
blowing on \t, the shore whllo th.e
tldo to going out.

The Highest Tunnel
Ever s.nco the discovery of South
America the, great Andean chain of
u-ountains, *.\"n**-h runs from ond to
end of the continent, has formed a
formidablo barrier to Intercourse between the nation inhabiting it. indeed, it hac-actually been simpler for
people livlnc iu the Argentine to
make long sea voyrges in order to
reach their neighbors in Chile rather
than attempt to cross the natural
fiontler dividing them. But the'proud
Andes have now been subdued by -he
burrowing thr: ugh of a tunnel, the
lcftiestri (of -any considerable length)
iu the world- This Is to bo found on
the'Transandina Railway,'which runs
from Buenos Ayres "on the Atlantic to
Valparaiso on '.Le Pacific, a distance
of 8SSS miles. In ascending the Andes
the track follows more or less closeiy
the old Andean trail till it reaches
the foot of iha Cumbre Pass. He*e,
ai an altitude of 10,500 feet above the
sea level, "he ���aummlt of, the .mighty
lVMige of mountains is pierced by- a
tunnel just over two miles in length,
It. was at once *.i difficult and arduous feat, necessitating the toll of an
army of brave men for several ye;."s
in a reglou of eternal snow aud frightful bllzzar's hnlced, this tunnel In
the Andes lies l.cOO feet higher than
the highest carriage road In Europe
that over the SUevio Pass���and
more than 3,500 fret higher than the
Mount Cenis, St. Gothard and Simplon
Passes. With the opening of the Panama Canal tho commercial import**.!**"��
of this tunnel cau hardly be exaggerated.

Provinces feel,that with the' possibilities possessed by such a widespread

largest purchaser of Canadian products. The fact is not lost sight of,
however, of tbe opportunities offered
by the now fast developing South

Punishment in Effigy
Punishment lu'. uffigy was legalJy
practiced in .Prahce and with greiJ
solemnity up' to tlie time of the first
revolution. - If , the man condemned
escaped a dummy was put up in liis

law allowed to take its course. The
warrant was read to it, and on the
day appointed^ _was_conducted to
the scaffold i.i the ��� p"resen"ce"""of"air

Bacon Predicted Steamsh'pa  and Aeroplanes  '' The seventh leutonary of the bl-tU  of Itoger Bacos was celebrated recently at Oxford University, whero  tht famous philosopher studied somo  years.  Bacon tppearr to have predicted  many things which have - been" reab  \zeft, such as tho bteninship, the automobile and the flyin-; machine.  One of the earliest pf Bacon's miner  v*orks, tho treatioO "on the marvelous power o^ art and nature,' was  first printed iv Paris in 1512. His  early reputation for, magical pow*5ra  nnd mechanical Inventions partly  arose out of a passage In that treatise, stating that It was possiblo to  make "instruments . of' navigation  without mtn to row iu them;" "chariots' moving with unspeakable* force,  without any living creature in them;  and even au iuatrumeut ' to fly  wttlial if one sit in tho midst of tho  Instrument, and do turn an engine,  by which the wings, being artificially  composed, may beat the air after the  manner of a flying bird." "Also per-  spects may b������ so formed that things  far off shall soeni most nigh unto  us." lie further states that "from  saltpetre and other ingredients, wo  aro able to mako a Are that shall  burn' at any distance wo please."  The sciences traversed by Roger  Bacon In the course ot his published  works Include Theology, Speculative  Philosophy, JIathomatics, Geography,  Astronomy, Physics, Optics, Chemistry, Experimental Science and Moral  Philosophy. He was interested in  every one of these sciences taken  separately, but he also realized the  close connection of all the scleuc.es  to one another. He tells .us, in his  Opus Tertium that all the sciences  are* connected, and' foster one another  with mutual aid." s  Roger Bacon was profoundly convinced of the influence of tho stars  on the life of man. He even held,  with Albu-nazar, that the origins of  all religions, aud cof their several  sects, depende.'. upon the'conjunctions  of the planers, and it has been sur;  inis'ed tJiat ti.is was one of ihe 'novelties" of opinion for which be was  condemned Dy the authorities of thd  Franciscan Order.  But such co*jld only have ,been part,  of the pretext for tho severe' sentence  passed upon aim. The crime Oi  which;* in the eyes of his superiors,  he was really guilty was an unflinching devotion to the cause of liberty,  progress aud reform. He was punished by persons in authority for the  unpardonable offence di' holding opinions in advanc-; of those of his own  time; but Uu* present generation wUl  assuredly rejoice in the honor that  is being paid to the memory of one  who was a votary of learning , and  science, as wa:i as^a martyr-iii' the  sacked cause ol liberty.

Beware of    , ; ���������  ���������  Fake Baking Powder Tests  ,    ("THE SPICE MILL"'(N.Y.), SEPTEMBER, 191.3.) "  Unscrupulous manufacturers of baking powder, in order to sell  their product, sometimes resort to the old game of what is known as  "the glass test." In reality it is no test at all, but, in cases where the  prospective buytc^Jojes not understand that the so-called "test" is  a fake, pure and simple, the salesman is sometimes able to make h'im  believe it shows conclusively that the so-called baking powder he is  selling, and which of course contains egg albumen, is superior to other  brauds which do not contain this ingredient.  Bulletin No. 21, issued by Dairy and Food Bureau "of the State of  Utah, reads as follows:���������      " '   -  "The sale in the State of Utah of baking powders containing  minute quantities of dried egg (albumen) is declared illegal. The  albumen in these baking powders docs not actually increase the  leavening power of the powder, but by a series of unfair arid deceptive  tests such powders are made to appear to the innocent consumer to  possess three or four times their actual leavening power."

The   transmitter  is  a  screeu    composed of colls Of selenium, tho electrical resistance of which varies according to the light that touches it.  Over this screen there passes a synchronously running roller consisting  of n  nuinbir of pieces, which    nre  alternating conductors and insulators.  Tho roller is driven by a motor of  3,000 revolutions a minute, and   tho  resulting . variations    of    light    are  tiausmittod along an ordinary    conducting wire.   The   receiver is mado  up of a sorbs of cells operated by  tho passage of polarized  light through  thin'salts of steel and at this receiver the object, which , is before    the  transmitter ii> reproduced as a nickering linage.  The process is described ns a "kino-  matographlc application of common  electrical prl-*el*.'es." Tho system  litis been tested .trough a resistance  equivalent to a d'stance of four miles,  but, in tho opinion of Dr Low, thero  It, no reason why It should not - be  equally effective over far greatei distances'.

Canada Is Spending Fifty Million Dollars    to    Improve    Transportation  Facilities���������To   Carry    Trade'From  East and Wes.t  Today Canada is making geography,  not of the ephemeral sort, thai passes  away In a generation, bat of that perm-  auent aud substantial character that  ���������will endure for o century and boyond.  Right in the heart of this North Amor- i  lean continent���������-almost at the ,doors r f  Toronto���������Canada is engaged upon a  project magaiilcent In Its conception,  revolutionary In Us offect, national .n  Its significance It.Is this that Canada is about in the building of the  r.-'\v Welland Ship Canal '   '  The nppellmlou, Wellaud Canal, is  pei haps three-quarters of a contury  old. The old folks u.lked of it, overy  school child leanis of it as part ot  the dally curriculum. ..But, with all  this, howo many know that right at  the threshold of Toronto Is geography  In the'inaklnj:,? A nation is convening its wealth, Its brains, Its muscle, to  overcome tho natural'?- obstacle to  navigation p-.'esenJei! In the Niagara  cataract���������or better to improve the  .facilities of the existing gap; to .'n-  sure that the trade of Canada will  flow east and we-t, and that Canada  herself shall become one of the carrier-nations 01 the world.  These are some of the problems involved   In  the  proposal    to  build  a  new Weland 'Ship Canal and it is to  ��������� their solution  that the gigantic project is now unaer way.  It is no idlo boast to speak of tho  construction of the new canal across  the Niagara Peninsula as one of the  world's greatcr.u engineering tasks Indeed, the osvimaod expenditure of  550,000,000 would ��������� be sufficient to  warrant that -lalm. But ' In these  days of great .engineering construc-  . tion the new Welland Canal will rival  in its challenge to, science the connecting waterway'at Panama, where  two ocea.is arc joined, and in its com-  n.ercial efficiency to the prototype of  all big-canals, i at Suez. (  There is' i romance in the histor;  i of what maj\,'be called the Welland  Canalsj and there is the charm of  fiction in tlie story of 'the conception,  design and new the construction.*- of  the greater Wellanct. For its realisation men havp striven in the glare of  the nooday and the quiet* of the  night, In the halls of parliament and  in the secluded purlieus 'of the council cha.nbe.  It is a mane work; it is a work  f'.>i many men; it is a worthy task for  a nation. ,��������� The met who build* those  canals don't figure in digits Th-y  compound in tnousrJuds. .The ,,faith is  _giiien~o_;ihem_tQ_remoy_e-���������jnounlams,  They pjc'k up' a railway here and* deposit, it bodily over there- They compute quantities nn.; distances as if the  smallest thing to do was* to lift a  great steamsulp with- ten thousand  i-s.is of cargo oi-er a 300-foot hill, and  place It on" an ev?n keel ?,5 miles  away.  It is worthy to note that the directing genius of tne new Welland Canal  is a pure Canadian product. lMr. John  Lalng Weller a ei.gineer in charge of,  Burvey, design and construction. He"  Is one cf the. Increasing number of  graduates who now encircle the globe  ln one branch of the imperial service  or another wh; have brought great  and lasting credit to their alma mater  ���������the Royal Military College at Kingston. Mr. Weller was born at Co-  bourg. on February 13, 1862, At tho  ngo of twenty-one ho was assistant  engineer on the Trent Canal; from  1888 to 1900 he was connected with  the St,. Lnwronoo Canal system, ami  from .1900 to 1912 superintendent oi^  tho Welland Caiial. When the serious break occurrou In the Cornwall  Canal In 1008; Mr. Wotlor was callod  from St. Catharines to take charge of  tho .work.  Tho first shovel started to work on  October 3, 1913, and the specifications  provide for tho completion of all contracts In timo for the opeuluij of tho  canal in 1918.  Fifty million dollars is, rough'v  ���������peaking, Mr. Wollor's estimate of tho  cost of completing the canal. The  prices so far obtained from the contractors placo the cost considerably  bolow his ostlmatc, and ono ambition  tlio onglnoor has lsiV that tho whole  undertaking may be completed and  handed ovor to the government within tho original osllmato,  All the work la being dono by contract, excopt tho building of the lock  Kates, which are prnvldctl hy tho department to Insure uniformity of final  Hy and a, lower price, In view of the  number rcqulrtd Guard lockH will  be put In at Fort Wollor antl Port Col-  borne.

Mr. Wollor's experience with  canalH hau enabled him to Introduce  Into his doslgu many Improvements  that wlll facilitate the eaBo ot operation. The lockH aro all of tho samo  bI/.o, and the parts are Interchange-  able, In the multitude of dotal] today ho has a vision of tho completed  canal, with the products of the  prairies mooting tho Imports from tho  old land; cnntorn Canadn grasping  through Its long ntrotolios the hand of  tho west In ono great national purposo,���������Toronto Glolio,  DAIRV COMO'Rrnfj  Canada Sent J.

Willis is. ar undesirable alien, who  was charged at London session's with  contraventini' aa expulsion order  wliich had followed his practice of a  confidence trick.

It was difficult to know what  would .happen to him ln tho circumstances and he might permanently becomo a passenger ou ..liners travelling  between the different countries.  The unwanted Willis was said to  have been twice rejected by tho Unit:  ed States authorities and if the Russians **efuso to havo hlni back ^ ho  seems destined for a life on tho rolling deep unless he obligingly seeks  a watery grave.  FOR TOWN  BETTERMENT  SOULS VS* ALGEBRA  Dr.   Francis   Denounces   Majority   of  Teacners as Ignorant  Denunciation of the present .school  system uttered by Dr. J. H. Francis,  superintendent "of schools, Los Angeles, Cal... caused u stir among delegates present, at a session of the  National Education association held at  St. Paul.  "God bless the girl who refuses to  study algebra, a study wliich causes  many girls to iose their souls," was  one ot Dr. Francis' statements'.  "The-average literature teacher., had  no soul and little brain," he continued-  'It is a wicked waste of a child's  life to compel nim to study with her.  ���������'Most of our teachers are selfish  egotists, would-be scholars, hiding behind the word 'conservatism,' afraid  of any new method .because it would  show her'ignorance.*  "Progress, too, is blocked by the  great civic religious and political interests.  "I would rather send my child to a  teacher with a soul than one ' with  brains whose only object is to have the  child reach the answer in.the back of  the book. ,-   -  "Nine-tenths of our immorality is  due,-to damagj done by teachers to  boys and.girls Defore, they reach high  schools."  ,Kamloops,_B-C_.,_Qpens_Eiiblic_Market  The city of Kamloops, B.C., : has  opened a public market. On the opening day a goodly .crowd of citizens  .were present- early in the morning,  ready" to'receive the "vendors.

But  wnat about the country town? -Does  il need nothing? Is life In the couu-  try town or -v Uage so near perfection  thut no improvement can take placv?  ? Yet we rarely Loar this matter discussed. Either* we have grown accustomed to things as they are. or  havo been discouraged at repeated fai-  ures.

His  eybs had apparently not beon openod  to' tho grei.t needs aud woiulorful opportunities for social service that were  all about him Jn his own little town  For his benefit and for that of hundreds of Hhers like him, let mo quote  a few paragraphs from an article by  P. M. Hansen oi Des Moines:  "Business jealousies, social Jealousies, and miduulcrBtaudlngs are of frequent occurrence and assumo large  proportions In town lifo. in some  towns certain social,, lodgo or. church  groups make for rery distinct sots or  cliques* All this calls for a getting  together for mutual helpfulness to understand each other and to realize  that it's all ono big family , with a  common Interest- Events which aro  community-wide in their nature, such  as banquets, receptions, play events,  etc., may weil be planned with tho  idea in mind of doing what has just  been suggested above. If even all tho  men of a town would meet, onco a  month or so and discuss the community problems and mix socially it would  be worth while. In one town a commercial club has done with good results just this very thing. The writer  has always said that if some industry  could bo devised to make use of the  winter months of idleness ot! many  men-In small towns it would be a  blessing not only'to the men but to  the community. - There , is a great  economic waste here.  The public health Is a thing of .vital  coLcern in each town, and yet how little real attention is given to it. A survey of almost any small town would,  reveal some startling facts as to the  conditions endangering health. No  more practical thing could be done  than to make a health survey of a  community and then take action.  . A town, clean-up day has been1 one  of the first things thought'of in town  betterment tc safeguard' health and to  beautify1 the town. There Is an abundance of literature on the-preservation  of health which can.be made use tf  in such campaigns- .    .    /  The educational interests of a community can .beh'elped by any group  with real community vision. Are the  public schools the best? Is,the building the best? Are the courses what  they should be?

Proper recreation and entertainment  for the people of a community is no  small factor in making for character  and contentment as'well as community pride. Some organizations should  take a hand in seeing that public recreation is properly directed. Wl o  runs the town ball team and does It  respect honor, truth and the Sabbath?

The Remedy For the Many Evils Foi ,  lowing  Jeforcstatlor.  is the Carry-j  Ing Out of a Policy of Conservation  Under Government Control.  A perpetual timber supply, resulting  from- systematic  methods of cutting  is commonly, and correctly,. supposed  i to be the  chief purposo of making  ' forest reserves.  Another purpose, scarcely, lf at ti'.l  inferior, is Auu. of regulating the runoff from, th water-sheds of rivers, on  which,.on account of the fact, that tho  land is un-suited for farming, throueh  its being too poor In quality or too  rocky, or being at too high a level and  so exposed to frosts, trees form the  most profitable crop.  Forests maintained for this latter  purposo are called 'protection forests,'  Possibly the best example of such a  forest, and certainly the largest protection forest In tiiu world, is tho  Rocky Mountains Porest Reserve ln  Alberta, which now has an area ot I'O,.  SDH square' miies.      .      .    , .  Portunately t'io Dominion _ "govern-1  mont early'recognized the value of'  such protection forests, and, by, '.no  creation of forest reserves in eho  west, the great rivers of the plains  having-their source in these' watersheds were savc-d from the disastrous  Hoods, the ,ow-water stages, and the  flllliig-up of the river-beds with eroded soil, so characteristic of the rivers  originating in the denuded water-sheds  of the eastern United- States.  In this latter region many areas in  the-Appalachian mountains, which  cover a large part of Pennsylvania,  Virginia, the Carolinas and other  States were very severely cut, and  have been repeatedly swept by lire, so  that the forests have been entirely  destroyed. When rain falls on such  an area, the wuler runs off almost Immediately; if, on the other hand, the  area were covered with forest, the  soil would be more spongy and able  to retain water, aud the water would  be hindered in running off by tlie tree-  roots and the debris on the ground.  Moreove.*. the water, in its rapid run-'  off, gradually takes with It the soil,  and where the soil covering the rocks  j.is thin, it is apt to be washed away  entirely. Hen:e there is lost any pos-  sibility of growing a new forest on the  new bare rock. The soil'carri'ed away  eventually found its way to the larger  rivers and harbours, and did actual  harm by silting . these, up. The increased irregularity of flow in the  streams���������excessively full - in* spring  tand as scanty in midsummer���������greatly  (lessened tte value"of the water-power  situated on tnem. Accordingly an agi-:  tation-sprang up to" take steps to re-  afforest suoh areus as above referred  to, and aftor some years the Weeks  Bill was finally passed in 1911, setting  aside .1.11.000,000' for the purpose of  conserving thu navigability of navag-  able streams, by buying up and ultimately rc-affore&thig tho denuded  areas on imro.-tant water-sheds.' At  present over five and a half million  acres' in ths Apalachians "havo been  purchased or approved  for purchase.  The right of tho federal govern^  nient to expropriate such lands by purchase hinged on the power of promoting navigation, given by the constitution. In Canada the Dominon govern-  niet was also gven the regulation of  navigation by tho British North Anic."-  lea Act of 18G7, and'it has been suggested tliat, In those parts of eastern  Canada where wasto water-sheds  clearly oxort a detrimental influence  on the navigability of'rivers, the Dominion government should co-operato  with the provincial governments in  there establishing and conserving forest growth. Such a water-shed Is. that  of tho Trent rlvor, Whero, according to  a report lately issued by tho commission of conservation, ns tho result of  repeated llres, about 150,000 acres aro  practically desert land. The Trent valley canal wlikh passes through this  region, mis already cost the Dominion government upwards of $10,000,-  000, and, as above report points out,  tho re-osiabllshmont of a forest covor  ou the denuded water-shod for tho  conservation of water-supplies Is ono  of paramount Importance to the naniil.
