The Board of,Trade has been  very active of late in dealing  with matters qf importance to  the future welfare of thc city  and deserves thc hearty support and cooperation of all, the  citizens.  the world is pleased  to   call tangible   facts  as on the prevalent and profound  public confidence throughout  the Dominion in thc nation's resourcefulness, as regards" the pro  ducts of soil, mines, forests and  waters aud on the ability of. its  citizenship to deal intelligently  and successfully with the iniuied  iate or any other emergency.

The   principle   thing   is  that Canada has   pulled through  what", in onr judgment, may pro  perly be called the crucial stages  of the prestint  crises with (lying  colors.    More  than   this,   such  figures   as may now  be quoted  show lhat the   balance of   trade  which for years has been against  the Dominion, and heavily so, is  now being steadily reveised. According to the federal minister of  finance, W. S. White, "Rxporta-  'ions from Ihe   Dominion,   have-  not only increased iu  relation to  previous i'auadian standards,but  compared with both  Great Hiii-  ouiwaid ior capitau ior enter  prise, for settlers of its surplus  avas. for woikersj It will prob  abiy have to to look oiit-wa.d for  al! of these- to some ,exicnt  thiough many more yerfrs. ��������� JJut  it is lining iir.thcse days that  il has at- home and. al.hand prac  tically. every resource essentia fib  its welfare, and that, its first 'd:_tv  'o itself i.s to develop" its own  opportunities.

He remembered then hni prophecy that a  misfortune awaited him in this house;  and so fixed was his look inlo the cor-  , nor where he seemed lo see lier image  that Delia noted It and snid:   ,  "Whi't r������re yon staring at so?"  ,  "Nothing.   notaLj."  he    answered  quickly.   "Dulia, 1 can hardly realize  it."  "But you guessed," she said jealously.   "You g-iessfd?"  "h.deed, 1 ft A n.A," lie answeerd, "1  nether guessed nor.hoped. Delia, my  only wonder was liow angry you would  be with ni-,"  "Oh, poor boy!" she said, stroking  his cheek.  "Why," ho went en, "I had so little  idea, so little inter.ton of speaking  even, that 1 remember now I have  promised to dine with Ambrose B~us-  stead .tonight."  "But you won't, new?" she said wtli  her quick jealousy.  "Oh, no," Hugh answered at once;  "of course not."  "Dea.* boy," she smiled at him.  "Come he:e und sit by me, and lot us  talk."  He obeyed her and sat near by her. j  Eul for tlu .ife 'of him ho could not  think of a single thing to say.   She  made a face of discontent.  "I thought lovers rhapsodized," she  said. "You don't."  ' "I have hardly realized I am- a lover yet," said Hugh, and addeu hastily  as sho lookc . s. him, "I meai- an accepted lover, of course. 1 nave been  a lover long enough."  "llow lo; g?" she asked wtih a happv  sigh.  "Oh,"  he  said,  uneasily,    "a  long  time, months .perhaps."  -    "I  thought  you   would   have    said  years," she remarked with a .touch of  discontent.  "It seems an eternity," he replied,  truthfully enough.  "And wlien did you first know you  loved me?" she asked, smiling at him.  "It���������it���������I," he answered,"stammering wlille she watched him happily,  and he wondered to himself how long  T.e could endure this'  "Shall I tell you a secret?" slid  asked.. "You .mow wo must havo uc  srr.ret.-5 from eaoh other i.ow. l  thought you despised my temper and  lack of self-control."  "Oh, Delia,' he protested, with his  hand pressed to his heart.  "Yrs, I c'.irt" sli. insisted with a littlo  Mod.     'Do  ynu  romorabor telling  "No, I havo forgotten," he answered  quickly. "We musi forget the ;>ast  me I was'a 'brutal little fury' once?"  and think of the future  instead."  "Forget the past when it has  brought mo such happiness?" she protested w'th p. look of rebellion, "No,  indeed. Hugh, teil mo, when first  you "  "Ah, do not ask mo snob a question," lio .cried stung beyonc. e'lilur-  a;: co.  "Whv apt?" sho- asked, flashing a  swift glance nt him thai bad in it al-  roi'dv' something of suspicion,  ".Those wore days of doubtt- antl  till" nf certainty," ]io -answered,  "Ah,, you mo.'ii my outbvenks ct  temper    sometime,',  frightened  you,'  phatically. jiudeid���������"nothing ot the  kind. All that his been done away  with; for one'thing you have to have  been in residence there for so loug."  "How silly," complained Delia, "1  thought you only had to say something  before witnesres and it was all  right."  She looked very angry and disgust-  I ed, but Hugh experienced a devout re-  | lief. , If marriage in Scotland had been  quite as easy as Delia supposed, he  was by no means sure he -would not  have found himself forced to elope  then and there with that very impetuous and headstrong young woman.  "No, no, Delia," he said, "it will  be only fair to put the things squarely to your father and see. what he  .'says."  "Well, then," said Delia, considering, "I think you had better go now;  lor he may be hon.e any,minute, and  perhaps he l.ad better not iind you  here. If he seems in a good temper  and I get a chance 1 will say something; and if not, you had better  come and see him ,tomorrow, After  all." she addeu, "we can always fall  back on an elopement, and do you  know, Hugh, I think it would ba rath-  *   fun to elope?"  Hugh ��������� iu not think so'at all; but  without discussing this point he fell  11, thankfully e.'.ough,, with Delia's  suggestion that he should taive his  leave. For indeed he felt thnt if he  stayed with her ..much longer his self-  possession might desert him. It was  agreed that he should keep his engagement to dlno with Lore. Ambrose,  and then he put out his hand -to bid  her good-night. But she, laughing at  what she called his modesty, put up  her lips to be , "jscd, aud then'-on ..  quick impulse threw, her arms about  his neck.  "Dea. old Hugh." she breathed, "1  shall nov.r cease wondering how you  managed to Jin 1 me out."  How Hugh finally got away he  hardly knew, but?., last he-found him  self outside, in Juch a confusion and  distress of mind as not even his  threatened'bankruptcy had been aid 3  to evoke in,, him. His only0 hope  seemed to be that Mr. Hetherington  would .forbid the match; and Hugh  had an u'.icomt'o/table feeling that the  more iVr. Hetherington forbade it, the  more Delia wouid -be determined on  it.  ".And thc-n uncle has always been  more than half scared bf her," he  mused; "perh )s he will consant--  lord, I may find myself married to  Colin in less than a month."  Arrived at this stage of his meditations he locked round in despair and  ..eeing a ctib, hailei. it and was driven  to his club, whero to his surprise he  found Lord Ambrose Boustead waiting  for him.  "There you are, old chap," said  Lor.. Ambiose beamin;Ov. "I have boen  planning the evening out ro "that we  can have a real high old time. We'll  dine at Towxton House, then we wiil  go to the '.heatre, then we will have  "slip per" iftf"Tt"oi5D iirrsntmr; th en-w_-wi IV  go back, to Towxton House and finish  the night with bridge,    What do you  say."  "First rate," said Hugh, "so long  as you don't mind my getting drunk."  "Kh?1" said Lord Ambrose, putting  up his eye-glass and looking at liim in  surprise; "why I thought you were  such a sober  sort of Johnny,"  "Not tonight, this is my night on,"  said Hugh, without a smile; "I'm going to bc the drunkest man in London tonight, so that is fair warning"  "By Jove," said Lord Ambrose, "we  are out for larks then, eh?"  "I don't know if you are," replied  Hugh with tho same fixed look; "J  have boon in .for one lark and I am  winding up with a spree."  "fiiKlit yon are," returned Lord  Ambrose cheerfully; "lot's take a cab  to my place, the*, and make a start,"  Hugh agreed, and Lord Ambrose  hailing a cab thoy were driven off to  Towxton House, This was a gloomy  old building, dating from tho early  seventeenth century, very large, very  dilapidated, and very ugly,   II stood in  But whatever emotions they might  be that the sight of the flower-girl  raised in Hugh's breast^ Lord Ambrose Boustead seemed to have ideas  of his own about her.  'Stand back, ,you," he shouted, and  ran right at her.  The girl, alarmed, sprang back into  the roadway and Lord Ambrose banged the postern gate on her and locked  it with the key. he ..always carried  with him. As for the great entrance  gates, they were always kept locked;  for any vehicle seeking admission, the  big bell had to be rung. This was because of the annoyance caused by  tramps, who, when the gates stood  open, were apt to slip in on fine days  and use "the grounds as a convenient  busking spot. Hiigh, standing quite  still, had'a vision of the flower-girl's  pale faco pressed against the bars of  the gate and pesring in, as a captive  might peer through the bars of a prison cell. The vignette of her pale face  seen through the iron bars remained  long, in his memory.  "Now we have 'em," said Lord Am-  brase .excitedly, as he returned his  key to his pocket, "this is the only  gato nnd now they can't get out."  "But���������but " repeated Hugh, not  understanding, and his eyes turned  involuntarily towards- the Hower-girl  seen through tho bars bf the postern  gate, "but what do you mean?"  ' "Why, burglars," said Lord Ambrose impatiently for his quick and  subtle mind had grasped the situation  more quickly than Hugh's slower intelligence, which indeed was occupied  just now chiefly by the pale face and  deep, mysterious eyes of the flower-  girl who still stood outside the gate.  "That's their decoy," said Lord-Ambrose, pointing to her, "that I ell is to  alarm them, theyare after dad's silver  I.e lent mc when I first hung out here.  Gome along."
