He facetiously remarks: "Parsons are human," says the Enderby' Pressr  'There goes another of our traditions! Once  we had the idealization of the past to buoy  us up. Then the writings of Brother Walker and~ Brother Lowery and other stern  iconoclasts were just getting us to feel that  the preachers were chiefly a nebulous formation, something in the star dust line,  who, when in contact with the atmosphere  of this cold" world of hard fact, simply went  off in a series of explosions, irritating the  highly sensitized moral make-up of these  gentlemen, and otherwise disturbing the  circumambient ether with some noise and  more or less dazzling coruscations and then  ���������������������������a smudge. Now we are told that they  are human. Coming as it does at the tail  end of summer, when we are scarcely recovered from our vacation, the shock is  considerable. i,      /  /'The sad part of it is that Mr. Walker  seems to prove it by saying that the parsons do not pay taxes.        /  "We all know that yearning toayoid tax  paying. Even editors and other millionaires chortle, when theyget the assessments  away down or avoid it altogether in chunks.  So it follows that the most humanly human  chap is the one that dodges it-altogether.  But of course we speak of things as they  are at the Coast. Up in that pure?atmos-  phere around Enderby, that gateway to  thhaigs\delectable, .if'not .unspeakable, it  rhay^be that'the people; following the high  example of their'editor, "welcome < the tax  collector: as' a long-lost. brother, saying:  'All I have-is thine, take it and more also.'  "Soon the parsons under1 the^ instruction  that the Enderby Press affords them from  time to time, will be able to pay taxes and  otherwise 'spend a lot of money in order to  be poor in the Okanagan," but, then, they  may be in the position of the Irishman who  was awakened by his wife in the dead of  night. 'Get up, Pat/ says Biddy,, 'there's  burglars in the house.' 'Lave thim be,  Biddy,'says Pat, 'if they find anything, I'll  git up an' take it from thim.' "  rpEN days ago the world was thrilled by  Cook had found the North Pole. He spent  two days there, April 21-22, 1908. While  the world was still cheering for Dr. Cook,  a message is shot from the telegraph station farthest north that "The North Pole  was discovered April 6th by the Peary  Arctic club expedition, under command of  "Commander Peary." "And how "the stay-  at-homes are putting forth their doubts as  to the colossal achievement of these indomitable explorers. But the mystery of the  North, the solution of which has engaged  the attention of the world's explorers for  the past century, will be unveiled when  these men make their reports. When this  is done, it is not at all probable that there  will be any kind of a rush tp get there.  The scientific value of these explorers' observations is another question, but the  value in dollars and cents is nil.  ENDERBY willl-ave^a1 City Hall. The  by-law carried by a comfortable majority. Every effort will be made to hurry  its commencement, and it is hoped to have  it ready for occupancy before winter sets  in. It is a big step in the right direction,  and will add a great deal to the dignity  and stability of our city government. The  city has had enough of City Hall makeshifts.

The people of Mara each year  feel the serious need of a station  agent to handle the business of  that growing district. The farmers of Mara are confined to one  crop and that hay, for the reason  that perishable stuff cannot be  shipped profitably -from-therethrough either Enderby or Sicamous. i Four hundred tons of hay  are shipped from Mara each year  but Mara does not get the credit  for it. The railway officials  demand to be shown what passes  through the Mara office, when  appealed to, and when the records of the office are brought  forth they declare the business  of the office does not warrant an  agent. This thing has been going on for years, and has done  more to retard the settlement of  Mara district than all other con- ���������������������������  ditions combined. It is a matter .  that should be taken before the ���������������������������  railway commission.  - ' .; "U-  vv'i w-i  \'j"'"'_  -���������������������������~7\ .;-4:l  '   ' *��������������������������� ' *.  ���������������������������' ,"-.-. i  .

Proceed as  in bread, except that they should  be shaped into rolls.  Cakes from Old Bread. - When  cut bread is left over from the table  it is usually thrown away. Instead  of doing this, put it in a tin can  of some kind and save it until you  have sufficient to make up for one  loaf of bread. Soak this bread in  j._lk or water and let stand for  half an hour. Then add salt, one  egg, and sufficient flour to make a  batter. After it is well mixed put  on a hot griddle and bake.

Tales of hidden hoards of pirates and of treasure cargoes stored  far beneath the waves in sunken  galleons have in all ages had a peculiar fascination for- men, and  many a life has been lost and many  a dollar expended in the search  for wealth that never existed. It  has remained, however, for men of  the twentieth century to place treasure-hunting on a sound business  basis, and to equip it with the machinery necessary to its success.  Within a few weeks the greatest  treasure hunt ever organized will  begin in the Bay of Vigo, where it  is estimated that within a comparatively small area, minted gold and  silver to the value of between  twenty and thirty million pounds  sterling lie.  THE BATTLE OF VIGO.  In the golden age of Spain's history she drew from her mines in  the West Indies gold and silver  worth more than ������������������9,000,000 a year.  In 1702 a fleet of galleons brought  home the accumulated treasure of  three years, amounting to some  ������������������28,000,000, together with precious  merchandise almost equally valuable. Arrived safely at Vigo; thc  seventeenth Spanish galleons were  attacked by the combined British  and Dutch fleets, under Admiral  Sir George Rooke. The galleons,  which were men-of-war, carrying  from twenty to forty guns apiece,  were assisted in the engagement by  21 French ships of the line. The  others were much stronger, and  gained an overwhelming victory. It  was to save the treasure falling into their hands that the galleons  were sunk. It is proved beyond  doubt that only a very small part  of thc treasure belonging to the  King was landed before the battle;  contemporary official documents  show it to have been _2,0S1,461, aud  the allies secured as booty no more,  than ������������������'134,785. Some of this gold  and silver was departed to the national currency in England, and a  number of c_ ni memorable medals  also were struck from the captured  gold by order of Queen Anne.  FORMER TREASURE-HUNTS.  Almost as soon as the battle ended attempts were made by'the Spanish Government to recover the  treasure. They were unsuccessful,  land later the Government began  to grant special charters to private  companies. A succession of attempts was made, the Government  at first demanding as much as i)5  per cent, of all treasure that might-  be raised from the bay. In 1728  a wealthy Frenchman, Alexandre  Goubert, almost succeeded in bringing one of the sunken vessels on  shore, but it proved to be a French  warship that had been sunk during the battle of Vigo. An English  expedition, under William Evans,  worked for a year from the end of  KILLING A GRIZZLY.  Thc hunter was recalling some of  his early experiences for thc benefit  of the tenderfoot.  "Ves, sir," he said, "it was my  first grizzly, and I don't deny.I was  proud of having killed him in a  hand-to-hand struggle We began  fighting about sunrise, and, when  he finally rolled over, done for, tho  sun  was going down."  He paused. No one said anything  and so he added slowly, "for the  second time."  "Do you mean that, it took you  two days to kill a grizzly?" aked  the English tourist.  "Two whole days and one night,"  replied the guide, reaching for a  match to light his pipe. "He died  mighty hard."  "Choked to death?" asked tho  tourist.  'Yes, sir," the guide said, calm  ly.  to  ���������������������������Well, well  get hini to  What did  swallow?"  you try  --lS25,=,and=succccdcd=-with-a=piiimiti-\ _;  diving bell in rescuing small  amounts of silver, cannons, balls  and other objects. Thc American  Vigo Company followed, after an  interval of years, and succeeded in  lifting one of the ships, which, however, went to pieces before it reached the surface, as it had not been  properly strengthened.  THE HYDROSCOPE.   No other concessions were granted until the present concessionaires  appeared on thc scene, and secured  from the Spanish Government the  sole right of working in Vigo Bay  until 191/3. The Spanish Government is to receive 20 per cent, of  the value of the objects recovered.  Dr. C. L. Iberti is at the head of  thc enterprise, while the engineer  ii: Guiscppe Pino, an Italian. Pino  has invented and patented a number of ship-salving instruments,  specially adapted for finding and  lifting the lost galleons. Chief of  his inventions is the hydroscope,  which may be described as a telescope for use under water. Through  the hydroscope objects can be seen  under water almost as clearly as  objects in thc air can be seen  through field glasses. The top of thc  apparatus is a floating platform, on  which twenty men can stand. From  its centre descends a powerful telescopic steel tube, at the end of  which is an optical chamber, a kind  of camera, provided with mechanical arms, and containing powerful  lenses. The system of lenses and  rellcctors is so arranged that objects surrounding the base may be  seen from above to a distance of  about 2,000 squaro yards. The  hydroscope is provided also--with  electric lamps of great power.  PNI ��������������������������� UM A TIC ELEVA TOR S.  Another of the clever Italian's in  ventions is a submarine'boat, which  was used by the Japanese to raise  the sunken Russian warships at  Port Arthur. It is shaped like a  torpedo, and is screw-driven; ifc is  also fitted with wheels, and can  move along the sea-bed ; it can rest  immovable in the water at any  depth, and has mechanical arms  which may be worked with a precision almost equal to that of human  hands. Among the other inventions  are the elevators, consisting of cylinders made of rubbered canvas,  into which compressed air is pumped. Each cylinder is capable of  raising 40 tons out of the water,  so that it is only a question of multiplying the number of cylinders,  whatever thc weight may be. ' The.  -levator has mechanical arms to  embrace the hull which is to be  salved, or cables may be passed beneath a keel when thc wreck is  weak.  THE GALLEONS LOCATED.  " The bed of Vigo Bay has already  been examined with the hydroscope  and the ships, which for more than  two centuries had rested peacefully in thc depth of the ocean, have  been located. By way of experiment several cannons were raised  to the surface, and a quantify of  wood was recovered, so well preserved as to resemble stone. The  wood of which the sunken gelle-  one were built is alone a treasure  that would repay years of work  spent on its recovery.  Thc general cargo brought home  by the transports included pearls,  emeralds and amethysts, amber and  precious woods from the South  American forests. It is known that  there were numerous works of art  in gold, silver and bronze, to say  nothing of 1,541 cannon, and innumerable articles of value belonging to officers and seamen.  When, in a few weeks' time,  work is begun in Vigo Bay, attempts  will first bo made on the Santa  Cruz, one of the largest of the galleons, which carried 34 guns. It is  hoped that she will come up whole,  for, from appearances, she has been  wonderfully preserved.  -__.  FORTIFIED AT FIFTY.  Dr, William's Pink Pills   Mn  ^ Health and Strength to Women  at a Critical Time,  Few women reach thc age of fifty  without enduring much suffering  and anxiety. Between the years  of forty-five and fifty health becomes  fickle, and acute weaknesses arise  with rheumatic attacks, pains in  the back and sides, frequent headaches, nervous ailmentsand depression of spirits.  The secret of good health be-.  tween forty-five and fifty depends  upon the blood supply. If it is  kept riclil red and pure, good health  will be the result, and women will  pass this, critical stage in safety.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills help women of mature years as no other  medicine can, for they make the  rich, red blood that means good  health, and brings relief from suffering. "Mrs. C. Donavon, .Ne .-  _astle,-^N=.---B;y=say-s=:-^Abou_^tw_=  years ago I was greatly run down  and very miserable. I did not  know what was wrong with me. I  was hardly able to drag myself  about, had severe headaches and  no appetite. I felt so wretched that  I hardly cared whether I lived or  not. I had often read of what Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills had done for  others and I decided to try them,  and [ can 'now" truthfully say I  found them all they arc recommended to be.

BLOTS ON NATURE'S NAME  VIEWED RY AN ANGRY LOVER  OF NATURE.  Plenty of Blots and Mistakes   in  Nature's Way of Doing Things,  so We Think.  One of Nature's many blunders  is that of carefully nurturing millions of lives for about, say, four  or five weeks, and then killing the  whole lot oJ'f in a single day and  night. She is fondest of playing  this trick on insects    and    plants.  Now, some insects are comparatively harmless., and if there is any  danger of their becoming too common, they art kept sufficiently down  by birds.  In spring large numbers are reared in trees and bushes. Some aro  destined to become-very beautiful  moths and butterflies. They fatten in the warm sunshine and on  .frosh green leaves specially prepared for them. Then, all of a sudden, a hurricane comes up, rain descends in sheets, and the following morning "a sharp frost sets in,  and countless hundreds drop to tho  ground d.ad.  WOLVES DESTITUTE.  Nature is shockingly neglectful.  Take wolves. A wolf's voracious appetite is appeased during summer;'  but, when winter arrives, he is left  destitute. The tiny dormouse is  taught by. nature to hibernate, and  the squirrel collects a winter larder of nuts to draw upon between  his dozes. Even beetles, and caterpillars, and worms are cared for.  But the great, hungry wolf is allowed nothing. He faces the winter  empty and shelterless, and has to  roam over hundreds of miles of  snow-clad steppes before he can get  . single dinner. In a frenzy of starvation and despair, he often devours,  his own kind.  CANNIBALISM OCCURS.  Yet, in the face of this, cruelty,  some creatures are allowed more  food than they can eat. Several  species of foreign sea-bird are sur-.  rounded by such swarms of fish that  they cat till they can.scarcely mo.ve,'-  much less fly. What,_ contrast to  the poor  wolf!  As we get forther on into tho  book of Nature, things^.get worse  and worse. The starving wolf, and  the bloated sea-bird ' arc bad  enough. Yet some creatures, in  spite of being surrounded with  food, will eat themselves. .There  is actually a case on record of a  captive hyaena who broke his- leg  between a fork in a branch, and  then gnawed it off. On the follow-"  ing morning, thc leg w^s gone���������������������������for  thc creature had devoured it, bones  and  all.  This is     quite    common    among  grasshoppers and locusts.    If you  catch" one of these creatures^,   ten  to one ho will break a leg off trying -to escape       Then, if you put  him with his loose limb in a tumbler, he will cat up his own leg wit.i  great relish.    In a similarly charm-,  ing  frame  of  mind  mice and  rats  ..-il Hgn a w-H> hei r-o wn-tail s-off y-and-  toads and caterpillars regard it as  the essence of morality to eat their  own cast-off skins.  MOTHS AND BUTTERFLIES.  But this is not all. Over-eating,  starving, and vicious appetites are  not my only quarrel with Nature.  Hundreds of. creatures commit suicide. -No man can walk through  a brilliantly" lit "town at night" in  summer without noticing the  swarms of moths that surround the  lamps. They are all desperate suicides. And' by the way they persist in going to their death one  would think they were quite fond  0f it���������������������������but it is all  nature's fault.  Some butttrflies live through tho  winter, and it is not generally  known that they commit suicide  whenever they get the chance. The  "chance" is one of those warm, sunshiny mornings in mid-December,  when it ought to be snowing and  freezing hard. Out comes the butterfly into the spring-like warmth,  and, after flying about flowerless  fields,   and leafless  woods  for the  day.  returns  now,  home in the evening.  And now, what do you think it  has done? It has broken its winter  sleep, and can't get its five hundred winks back. It fidgets and fidgets next morning to get out again.  But next morning happens to be  real December���������������������������snowing and freezing, and the foolish thing dies.���������������������������  Pearson's Weekly.  - ; .*-  Nearly 80,000,000 gallons of water  are used annually to cleanse the  streets of the City of London.  - fi  It's surprising howmany otherwise sensible men believe in signs  and omens. if  ���������������������������i.  &<>4<>4<>+o<t<rt*>t^o+o+o+<>.

Must be Treated Ihrough  tbe Blood.  Indigestion can be' treated in  many ways, but it can be cured in  only one way���������������������������through the blood.  Purgatives cannot cure indigestion.  By main force they move the food  on still undigested. That weakens  the wholse system, uses up the natural juices of tho body and leaves  the stomach and bowels parched  and sore. It is a cause of indigestion���������������������������not a cure. Otherstry pre-  digestcd foods and peptonized  drugs. But drugs which digest the  food for the stomach really weaken  its power. The. digestive organs  can never do the work properly until they are strong enough to do it  for themselves. Nothing can give  the stomach that power but the new,  rich, red blood so abundantly supplied by Dr.-Williams' Pink Pills.  So the reason for their success is  plain. The health of the stomach  depends upon the blood in ,its delicate veins.. If that blood is weak  and watery the~ gastric glands  haven't the strength" to secrete the  juices which alone can digest the  food. If the blood is-loaded-with  impurities it cannot absorb the good  from the food when it is digested.  Nothing can stimulate the glands,  and nothing can absorb the nourishment but pure, red blood. And  ���������������������������nothing can give that pure, red  blood but Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  Mrs.^Alfred Gallant, Mill River, P.  E. 'I. says :���������������������������"For . several- years,  previous up to two years ago, I suffered continually- from indigestion.  I could not eat enough to keep my  strength, and what little I did eat,  no matter what kind of food, caused  great pains, so that I became much  reduced in flesh, strength and  energy. I consulted several doctors  ane! took medicine from them but  without any benefit whatever. On  the advice of a friend I "began to  take Dr. Williams' Pink Tills and  soon good results, were "noticed, -I  could slightly increase the amount  of food day: after-day,-^and���������������������������'suffered  no inconvenience, untik after. taking ten boxes I could eat any kind  of food andI in a short-time-got back  to my normal state of- health and  feeLthat Dr. Williams'.

"The relations between William  and his mother, the Empress Frederick, became, at last, so bitter that  William placed spies about her���������������������������  even in'the bedroom of his invalid  father.  ^ "Through one of these spies William learned of the existence of a  journal which his father had kept  for some years. Frederick had a  taste for writing and the fact that  there was a coldness between hini  and his son led William to fear that  this secret journal might contain  some criticism of his conduct.  "The 'empress, however, was  clever enough lo conceal the diary  before her husband's death. Eluding the surveillance of her son, she  sent the papers to her mother,  Queen Victoria or to her brother,  then Prince of Wales, I don't remember which.

Ruttan and Mr.  William H., Hutchison on the  City Council.   Mr. Ruttan's  experience in matters of public work and municipal affairs  generally places. him   in a  position to give valuable suggestions to the old council-  men,   and he  engenders in  the- discussion    about   the  table very much of the practical,   viewed -from an unbiased      stand-point    Mr.  Hutchison's    thorough    acquaintance   with Enderby's  needs, and his close touch  with the business and   labor  interests,   fits  him   admirably for the work he has undertaken  on the city's behalf.   .  Street excavation last Wednesday night, the City of  Enderby would have discovered to its sorrow how serious a matter it really was.  It is not a question of  how many times these accidents may be averted by the  juick action of bystanders;  it is a question of are we as  a corporation a lawabiding  people and do we respect the  criminal code?  City   Improvements  The Example We Set  ON the agenda for the  special meeting of the  City Council last Friday  evening was this business:  "Complaint re. excavation  on Cliff Street being left unguarded at night. His Worship the Mayor." And it  was fair to anticipate that  His Worship would make  some reasonable comment  in a matter so flagrant as  this has been. But instead,,  the Mayor made light of  the whole affair, and pooh-  poohed the agitation of the  citizens who gathered Wednesday night and demanded  that danger lights be set to  prevent accident on Cliff  Street, where a water-pipe  trench had been dug across  the street and left unguarded  either by lights or rail. He  said his reason for bringing  the matter up at all was to  discover what had become  of two lanterns the city used  to own, whether they had  been stolen or stored away.  No light was thrown upon  this profound mystery.  _ The criminal code dealing  "with "excavations' on  BUSINESS is business, and  the  handling of public  funds is a trust that should  not be treated lightly.   It is  one wherein the essence of  business should be exercised.  We have heard considerable  complaint, froth and doubtful    questioning     relating  to the expenditures  for the  public work done  this summer by the city.' The trouble has been not so much in  the men doing  the work as  in the policy of the city under which   the   work   has  been clone.   Alderman Peel  has had charge  of all public  work  as  chairman of   the  committee whose duty . it is  to look after it.    No man  could work harder than  he  has  to  see  that the- work  was properly done and without unreasonable cost to the'  city.: But Alderman Peel noi  any other alderman is  nol  supposed to leave his . own  business  to attend to work  on the.streets and the building of sidewalks.'  The  city  has had no general office]  whose duty it is to superintend  such  work.     It   ha,  spent $2800 on pub li  If a certain amount of  public work is to be done, isn't  it far easier for the city to  stipulate what the work  shall be, appropriate the  money for it, and call for  tenders to have it done?  Men who understand the  work will then take hold.  They will be able to tell men  when they employ them how long  the job will last, and the matter  of wage will be settled by the  capacity of the workman. A set  wage per clay, especially if it be  a low wage, is the curse of any  community. It puts the talker  on a level with the worker, and  offers no incentive to the man  who wants to do an honest clay's  work.  Contract  work  is  far   more  satisfactory to the men who want  to work, and infinitely more satisfactory to the city.   It cuts out  of the workman's life  that incentive to gab and grouch,  and  puts the matter of advancement  all in his own hands.   It is up to  him then to make   good,    not  merely to draw a weekly wage  of $2.50 per day.   Also it relieves  the chairman of the committee  of public works of much of the  labor now unjustly thrust upon  him, and precludes much of the  criticism    unwisely   made.    It  shuts out all charges of graft  and favori teism, and shows that  the city is being run as other  business institutions   are   conducted.   This    the    ratepayers  have a right to demand,  and the  City Council   should feel   it a  privilege to give.  The Walker Press is putting in  the latest model Oliver type-  -vriter.

LET  OUR  SUITS  TALK  _������������������������������������������������������_* JW-W  highways and places where  there is likely to be traffic of  any kind, says that everyone  "who makes or causes to be  made an excavation upon  any highway, of sufficient  area and depth to endanger  human life, and leaves the  same unguarded and unin-  closed by a guard or fence  of sufficient length and  strength to prevent any person from accidentally riding,  driving, walking or falling  thereinto, is guilty of an  offence and liable to a fine or  imprisonment with or without hard labor, and everyone whose duty it is to guard  such hole, opening, aperture  or place is guilty oi manslaughter if any person loses  his life by;" accidentally  falling thereinto while the  same is unguarded."  It will be seen that what  His Worship presumes to  make sport of is., considered  a very serious offence in the  eyes of the law. And it is  quite certain, too, that had  Mr. Mark Hill and ladies  been  wrecked in  the Cliff  , x      _ works  thus far the present seasor.  without appropriating a cent  for the work or calling for a  tender in connection with it.  The work has just jogged  along as the men were willing to do it.  ^Is this policy right? Is it  just to ask an alderman  to superintend the work?  We should have a capabl.  man to act as superintendent and direct all work, and  tenders should be called for  as is the case in other towns.  We._ should��������������������������� demand_good  work and let the contractor  pay a good wage to his men.

A temperature of 45 degrees P. is cold  enough, and 100 degrees F. hot  enough to spoil it.  If using compressed yeast, see that  it is fresh. If dark and mouldy it is  old; if it breaks up like putty it is  weak.  Good yeast breaks up easily, has a  crisp feeling and a pleasant winelike smell.  Dried yeast cake will keep longer  than compressed. There is no danger  of decay, but -if kept too long it  spoils. i  Flour taken from a- cold place  should be -warmed before using to  about che temperature of the hands,  and the dough kept at this temperature. If allowed to become chilled  the dough will not raise. Too much  heat also weakens the dough and  spoils the color. Eighty-two to 86  degrees F. is the right temperature.  Always bear this in mind: For  bread baking use Moffet's Best, for  pastry use Drifted Snow���������������������������take no  substitute.  Mix the dough soft; it has enough  flour when it ceases to stick to the  fingers.   -  Knead the dough, thoroughly; it  improves the texture and makes the  bread stand up better.  If good results are not obtained,  change the yeast.  Work on the Round Lake mining property, bonded by the  Williams company, is being prosecuted.

Suppose you drop the blinders of  conceit and take a squint in the mirror of revelation. And while you're  at it get a good look. See your  weaknesses and acknowledge them.  They're bound to be found out by  some one" else, because the biting  acid of life will sooner or later eat  away the plating of hypocrisy and let  the brass of your nature peep  through.  Who are you that you have the  right to judge anybody?

Do you ponder  over the probable consequence of  your gossip?   You don't.  It isn't because you wish to hurt  nor because you are really malicious,  but because you don't visualize the  consequences of your thoughtlessness'���������������������������because you don't see the definite otcome of what you are doing.  The charity that you spell in dollar marks is minor alms. Give of  your heart, give of your understanding, of your gentleness, of your forbearance.

The question  of Confederation  v.i    the   all-important one in considering  the history of the J)ominion.      Wc naturally ask, Wiho was the father of this  great movement?    .In dealing with  this  question we, have really to consider but  two names, the Hon. George Brown and  Sir John Ma .don .Id, and that we are  to-day    a    strong and united' people is  due, first  of all,  to  the foresight and  enthusiasm of the Hon. George Brown,  who, from   the   moment Confederation  flashed    on    him,  followed it with  ardent    faith,    a.nd,   secondly,     to     the  diplomacy and statesmanship of Sir John  Macdonald,  who.  long a.n   opponent of  the. movement, like the wise ''opportunist"  he  was, skillfully  worked, out  the  scheme when he did take it in -hand. Like  all great movements, this had long been  in _hc air.   ]f we had never a. Darwin  or a Wallace Ave would nevertheless have  had   the great  hypothesis of  evolution  demonstrated veiy much as it is at present;     and  so.  if' Urown   or Macdonald  had never existed. Confederation would,  in  all    probability, have    worked itself  out.    But   they hastened the movement.  The  time  was  ripe  for it.    Lord Dur.  harn^s report had suggested it.   In Nova  Scotia,   our greatest   Canadian   oratoT,  Joe Howe, Although he afterward* opposed  it, saw  what might be done by  such a union.   But it was left for George  Brown to wive Canada by sacrificing himself and his party prejudices that Confederation might l>e a fact.   ������������������   ���������������������������   ���������������������������  But Confederation was not    brought  nation: find it takes way���������������������������war a.gainst j about jri a day.

There was one grave difficulty in ihe way, a difficulty ".hat-has  ever 1 _cn in th" way of adequate legislation in Canada, ar.d whieh at the present moment we -are feeling as keenly  iis ever before���������������������������1 mean the race difficulty. J.onl Durham, although in this  country hut six months, sa.w it as clearly as we must all see it, and in his report declared that''he was brought to  the conviction that the contest which  had    been    represented as a contest of  . sl:sso.s was' lrl f"ct-' a contest of races."  This jealousy, this   antagonism of races  caused some of our politcians to advocate the absurd -'double majority'' principle,  and  confusion   worse' confounded  seemed about to enter Canadian affairs.  Jt   was   fortunate for Canada at this  juncture   that   she   had in her borders  such a man as George Brown, a man of  .sterling principle,  of  enormous  energy.  of   dogged   determination. a.i id. it may  he, of unbounded, egotism.'   He' certainly was very opinionative.   but to convince others he had to be sure he was.  in the'right; and the history of Canada  has proved that in the majority of cases  he was in the right,    it may be doubted  wh.etherjm hiidJJi^ abijjty  to lead   a  fi-orerirnieiftT'lna "no "better nmn"ever"  jiral foes or physical fo?s���������������������������to call out  that is best in a..man.

Jle delighted in  detecting evils aud in rooting them out,  and if he could not reign himself he  caused more changes of government  and helped to eradicate more abuses  than any other man who had battled  lor the rights of the Canadian peopl _  In  lSo7 he began his struggle for represent .tion by population,    i'lic resolution was defeated, but the Reform Convention  of-JS;.!l proved to  him thai   it  wa.s the one  thing needful for the proper    conduct    of Canadian    legislation,  that it was the one thing desired by the  ja.'oplc of the Upper Province.    The following year saw him once more <.n the  Moor    of Parliament,  introducing    two  motions   which   wi-vr.   seconded   l������������������v   Mr.  -Mowat. the    one    laying down the f.icf  that   the   union ns at present existing  was a   failure, and could not  be loiuier  maintained;     the  other  that   the   bent  '''luedy   for   the   racial   and   legislative  difficulties wa.s the formation of'several  Local    (ioveriiinenls,    with    some "joint  authority charged with such matters as  are necessarily common to both section*  of the Province."   This was in I860.    In  .seven   years   Confederation   was  an   established  fact, and yet when   these mo-  lions were laid before the llou-e, when  they    were    pre. ented  with   Ihe  telling  force of  an   orator speaking  from  conviction, they    were    laughed    to    scorn.  Both    motions    were   defeated by large  majorities,  the    one    dealing   wit.i  tin-  failure of the union by a vote of sixty-  six    to    twenty-seven';    the    other, ail-  vising the adoption of a joint authority  ���������������������������which to the student of Canadian history    must    appear identical with Confederation���������������������������-l'������������������y   seventy-four    to thirty-  two.    As Dent says. "The joint uut.io'r-  ity  scheme gave occasion   to some specially     facetious     remarks,     and     one  speaker    declared    that    tlie. bee in Mr.  I .own .   bonne-  must   be of  more portentous dimensions -Jinn the bonnet itself."  THE DEAD LOCI..  They could laugh such motions down,  but an evil existed and a remedy wus  ro<]ui!.d for it. J'he evil grew, and before long we  find a deadlock  in Garni-  power lo save his adopted country, and  with  manly generosity he stepped from  the ranks of Opposition���������������������������or rather took  the   Opposition   with   him���������������������������-and   helped  Canada over Uie greatest difficulty she  has ever had  to face.    It has been argued by friends and foes of Brown thai  he should never have joined the coalition  of   I8(i-1.     A   sincere   man   could   hardly  have done otherwise.      Me changed his  principles in no way by taking the step.  Jle had been battling for a cause, and so  well had he fought that the enemy were  making    an    almost unconditional surrender.  Three  seats in  the  Cabinet  were allotted to the Beform wing of the Government.    George Brown became  President of  the  Council,  William   Macdou-  gali. Provincial    Secretary, and    Oliver  Mowat.    Postmaster-General.      "Thus,1'    ,";". ,  as  McMullen says,  ''a  strong coalition       '  *-*  Government  was  formed   to  carry out  the   newly-accepted  policy of Confederation, and   although    extreme    parties  here   and    there grumbled at these arrangements, the great body of the people   of   all   s'hades of opinion, thankful  that    the    da.rigorous   crisis    had   been  safejy   passed, glaoly   accepted the situation, and    calmly    a.nd    confident! v  awaited the progress of events.     Never  before had a coalition been more, opportune.    It  rendered  the Government of  the country again respectable, elevated  it above the  accidents of  faction, and  enabled  it to  wield  the  administrative  power with that firmness and decision  so requisite during the trying a.nd critical period whieii speedily ensued."  SIR JO FIX MACJDONALD'S WOKK.  Prom   the   union of these parties the  name that will ever stand first as the  maker   of   the great Dominion will be  that   of John A. Macdonald.     lie   had  been a bitter opponent of reforms���������������������������not  that he  was  opposed   to  progress,  but  from   a   feeling -that   the country was  not- prepared  for  the  reforms  of such  'nen as Brown.      JJut from the beginning of his career till his death he was  a striking    example  ,of an  '���������������������������opportunist," and now that it was an opportune  moment   for   introducing Confederation  his    bygone    prejudices,   his  sneers  at  1.-own . "'joint authority," vanished like  smoke, and    he   became  the sturdiest,  most   persevering   adherent of the new  politic .1 panacea.     As Dent says of liim  in the "Canadian Portrait Gallery," "No  -man. can say  that on any given  question   his    finality of to-day may not be  his starting point at some "future time."  As in every other matter that he undertook, the moment he began ix> work for  Can federation    it.  was an assured success.  A 'Maritime   union   was   at this time  under    consideration;    Prince    Edward  Island,    New    Brunswick    and    Nova  Scotia  had arranged   for  a convention  to consider the question, to be held in  Charlottetown in September, JSf>4.   Macdonald.   with   characteristic  astuteness,  determined   to   have   delegates sent to  tlris   convention   to   advance "the interests of the broader question of a union'  of all British North America.   Delegates  were    quickly    chosen, and J. A. Macdonald, George     Brown.  Cartier,   Gait,  D'Arcy   McGee,   Langcvin.   Maodouga.il  and Canif __11 started on their jouniev  for the scene of the convention.   As w'e  read  these names  we cannot help feeling    that   there    were giants in those  days, and that it would be hard to find  i n^-the-=prese:nt"'P_ rl i anient  at    the   conference   which   afterwards  met at Quebec.    The minds bf all were  pretty well made up, and it took them  but    a.    short time to decide to accept  a  federal union  rather  than a legislative union.     At    this    conference   th-;  shrewd    common    sense    of Macdonald  went a long way towards framing a set  of  resolutions   that   would   find  acceptance    with   both    the   people   and   the  home   Government.       With   the   feeling  that  their Provinces  would  approve  of  their course, the delegates rapidly drew  up    the    72 resolutions, opening with:  "The    best    interests    and present and  future prosperity of British North America ' will   be    promoted  by a l-'ederal  union    under   the Crown of. Grea*. Britain, provided such union Ciin be   .fleeted    on    principles    just to the i.ove?al  Provinces."  Never   was   there,   a more opportune  time, for dealing with  a. radical change  in the country's life.      The difficulties  that   had    occasioned    the deadlock urgently called  for a   remedy.      The people,  too,  were alarmed  by  troubles altogether   external.     The   civil   war   in  the United States was raging with bitter    intenseness   just at this time, and  complications had arisen from our contiguity    with    the    neighboring Republic   that   made   us"fear-that we would',  once more have to t_ke up arms against  a foreign  foe.      If such  a  calamity as  war   should   overtake   us it could only  union that we could hope tomake  a. successful  resistance.      The civil  war  tion, and to repudiate the action of her  delegates at Quebec. But this cloud  interfered but littlto with the movement, and matters were now hurried to  a close.  In    December,    1 SOS,   George   Brow;;  withdrew'   from   the   Cabinet. '   lie   has  been censured for this, but we must remember that, he was only human.      .Me  had repeatedly declared, and his opponents had repeatedly acknowledged,*that  he had joined the coalition for"_ut one.  purpose���������������������������the making of a united Canada;     and now that Confederation was  assured it is not to be wondered at ihat  he   should   have been anxious to withdraw   from   a   body of men with whom  hc was in touch on only this one question; a body of men to whom his character  was an  incomprehensible  enigma.  The best thing, thc wisest among them,  their  leader,  John  A.  Macdonald,  was  able to sav of him ten years afterward1;  was that )iis readiness to coalesce with  ihe Government was thc only patriotic  thin .  he ever did in his life, and that  hs did it through a momentary feeling  of" patriotism    which  he soon  repented.   Js it to be wondered at, then, that  he   should   have   withdrawn from men  who so little understood his nature a.nd  his motives, and who, on tlie reciprocity  question   then   before'the country, had  delilK-rately siighted him.   *   *   **  The movement was not affected in  thc'ieast by .lis withdrawal, and.on the  4th of December, ISCO, representatives  from Canada, Nova    Scotia   and    New  likewise aided our .statesmen in anoth-    Brunswick   met    in London and agreed  er way. The weaknesses in the American Government had led to this great  war, and with their mistakes before  them our statesmen were able to construct, if not a perfect federation, at  least one that would avoid the rock on  whieh the American Government hid  come to-grief. With earnest, enthusiastic, convinced men to plead for it. with  internal evils calling for it as a remedy, with external dangers' demanding  its speedy completion, Confederation  was assured. The discussion of the details continued until October 28, when  the conference adjourned to Montreal,  where, on the 31st October, the members  agreed on the report to be made to  their respective Governments.  Thc Canadian legislature met in February. ''(>:. and there was no lukewarm  man in the Cabinet. Each member determined to have his name go down to  posterity as one of the builders up of  this great united country. They may  have caught something of George  Prowrrs spirit on the subject, for,  consciously or unconsciously, they all  felt as he did. In writing jo his'wife  at this time he could not refrain from  a piece of egotism that we can readily forgive. "Would you not like," he  wrote, "that, darling little Maddie should  be able at 20 years hence, when we  may be gone, to look back with satisfaction to the share her father hud in  ti   certain   changes    in the resolutions  these great events?   For great thev are.      a   ga'laxv  of such illustrious and able men.   Thev  were   in   earnest, the people thev visited  were   in   earnest, and it was not long  before-'-the  Maritime   Provinces    were  anxious to consider Confederation.   The  Charlottetowii meeting adjourned to reassemble at Quel>ec  on   the  20th  October in the same year.   In the meantime  the people of Halifax and St. .John had  an opportunity of getting (0 know Ihe  men    with  .whom . they were about to  <'ii*l  in their lot.    The 'delegates visited  these cities, and the question wa.s thoroughly considered  in  the  banquet halls  ���������������������������for   they   wo.ro.   banqueted    wherever  they went���������������������������sand in the press.    It was no  easy   matter   to   captivate   by   oratory  audiences   used    to    tho   silver-tongued  efforts   of    the    Nova  Seotiau  Demosthenes. .Joe Howe, but   George    Brown  .coins to have done. it.   To hini, as the  recognized father of the movement, was  assigned the bulk of the presentation of  it     He knew that the Maritime public  must    wonder    at    his    sifting side by  side with his bitter foes, and iii perhaps  his    ablest     speech     on   Confederation  clearly st .ted   the  reasons for this anomaly.    '-I."  he  says,  "and   two   pnlit-  cal    friends    joined tin; Administration,  and  the  existing coalition   was   formed,  expressly   for   the   purpose   of   settling  justly   and    permanently    the. constitutional    relations    between   Upper    and  Lower Canada."      Thc    union    of    the  (.madus had 1 _e_ agreed on.    For fear  the  Maritime   Province    people ' should  think   that   their   agreement   was   the  sine qua. non  he said:    "We  have not  come   here   to seek relief for our troubles, for the  remedy of our grievances  is   already  agreed   upon;     and,   come  what  may of  the  larger schemes  how  before us, our sma-ller scheme will certainly be accomplished.      Our sole object in coming'here, is to  sa}' to you:  We  are about to amend  our constitution, and before finally doin . so we invite you  to  outer with us frankly and  earnestly   into  the  inquiry,  whether  it  would not be for the advantage of all  the    British    North  American colonies  to be embraced under one political eye  tern."  All    the   Provinces,    including   New  ami history will tell the taJe of them."  The   Governor-General,  in   opening  thc  House, claimed for the.subject of Confederation the "calm, earnest and impartial consideration of the members.-   "Jt  now," he    said, "rested    with the public,   men    of British North America fo  decide   whether   the vast tract of country    which    they inhabit shall be consolidated into a'State, combining within its area all the elements of national  greatness,  providing    for    tbe security  of its component parts, and contributing to the strength and stability of the  empire, or    whether    the    several Provinces   of   which ii. is constituted slin.il  remain   in   their   present   fragmentary  and    isolated    condition, comparatively  powerless    for    mutual aid and  incapable of undertaking their proper share  of Imperialresponsibility."  THE VOTE OX THE UNION RESOLD".  TIONS.  The members were not slow in acting  on this advice; the debate on the question was indeed calm and earnest; but  -froni=*Uio^fir.st. it-was-cvident. that=the^  resolutions as agreed on at .Quel, c  would be carried almost unanimously,  and Avhen they were put to the vote it  stood .1 to :i:S in their favor. In April  Macdonald, Cartier, Brown and Gait  went as a deputation to England, fo  confer    with    the Imperial Government  adopted    by   the Canadian Parliament.  A  bill  based  on these resolutions  was  introduced    into    the  Imperial  Parliament, and   on   the 20th of March, 1807. '  became law.     The union act was at __.?������������������  end, and on the  1st of .luly. 18l������������������7, the  new   constitution,   thc   British    North  America Act, went    into    effect:    and"  Canada,   from    a    number of   isolated  Provinces,  fighting out their'individual ���������������������������  destinies,  became   the   great  Dominion  that  worthily lifts  up its head  among  the countries of the world.   Lord Monck,  who    had   .acted as a stimulating force,  to    bring   about Confederation, became  its   first Governor-Genera,,- and John A.  Macdonald. who, from   the   moment   he  put his mind to thc scheme, had worked night :'iid day to make it n fact, was  called   on   to form the first Administration.    In forming his Cabinet he showed a wisdom that has gone a long way  in making us the unit we are.   It was "a  coalition  Cabinet, and  in it all classes  were   represented.   The   Confoderatiori,"  he   said, "is   the   work of the people of  these Provinces, irrcspecive of old-time  opinion.   I do not want it to be felt by  any   section   of   the country that they  have   ro   representative in the Cabinet,  and   no    influence   in the Government.  And.as there are now no issues to. divide parties, and as all that is required  is to have in thc Government the men  who are  best adapted  to put  tli.   machinery in motion. I desire to nsk those  to join me who have the confidence of  and represent the majority in the various sections'which were .in favor of the      .  adoption of Confederation, and who wish  to see it carried out."  There are still several questions to  be considered l>efore .we ean leave this  subject. Manitoba.,J.upcrt's Land, and  thc Northwest Territories became a.  part of. the Dominion in 1870. British  Colombia in 1871. and little Prince'Edward Island, on whose shores the matter was first fully discussed, came in to  the fold in 1873, and the Dominion, as  we have it to-day, stretching from,  ocean to ocean, fronted the world..      _ ������������������ ������������������ .���������������������������  .

Col tart's fine dairy farm is located south of this. He has the  wide end of the valley open to  settlement, and has developed a  splendid, well-paying butter business. He has also a fruit orchard that produces a big crop of  cherries, apples, etc. Next to  Mr. Coltart's farm is the Indian  reserve, and, though the Siwash  holds the best land in the valley,  it-lies in the same wild state as  it was when he got it half a century ago.  Looking upward from this valley to the mountain one can have  no conception of the higher valley lying between the first range  of hills and those still higher  which slope westward into Deep  Creek. It is in this higher valley  where Bryn-iach is located. The  valley is probably a mile wide,  and extends from the Indian reserve on the south to the Salmon  Arm road four or five miles south  of the Elson corner. The first  locator in- the Bryn-iach valley  was P-. J. Frei. He has been  followed by C. Nelson, Jas. Ellison, T. Bradbury, Chas. Garden,  Gilbert Mohr, C. A. Skeeles and  E. Embrey.>  , Three years ago Mr. Frei  cleared 20 acres and erected a  cabin. He later discovered that  he had much better land on his  holding that that cleared and delayed planting. And, then, you  know, there are discouraging  features about homes, eading, and  only the strong-hearted push on  to achievement. I do not know;  of course, but it seems to me that  the first really essential thing on  a homestead, next to the vegetable garden, is flowers about the  cabin door���������������������������the kind, She likes.

He has erected a comfortable cabin, cleared 20 acres,  fenced most of it and has upward  "of 250 fruit trees set cut, grape  vines growing, strawberry patch,  raspberries,_gooseberries,_a_yege-  table garden, potato patch, and  Her favorite flower growing luxuriantly about the cabin door.  He has 8 plum . trees, 8 cherry,  8 pear,' 20 peach, 20 walnut, 150  apple, and .a number of grape  vines. Every tree shows strong,  uniform growth. Last winter's  cold snap which killed so many  fruit trees on the lowlands, did  not touch one of these trees. The  peach trees look exceptionally  strong.  The soil is a light red loam,  well watered by the hill seepage.  On Mr. Ellison's place is a clear  mountain lake, the waters apparently strong in sodas, for about  the shores it is white with a soft  vegetable deposit. Mr. Ellison  has cut a road from his clearing  to the lake and contemplates experimenting with the soft, rich  deposit about the lake to discover  what it will produce most profitably. The land is, moist, rich  and peaty and should be excellent for celery culture.  To the north of the lake, Thos.  Bradbury has a homestead. The  valley here widens considerably  and is admirably adapted to fruit  culture.  North of these settlers, but in  the same valley, we find the settlement of Glen Mary. Here the  same conditions exist with regard to fruit trees. Chas. Garden, Gilbert Mohr, C: A. Skeeles  and E. Embry all have demonstrated what can be done in a  few years on this land.

KING'S EVIDENCE  ;*-<>. O.K>*-0.-<>4K_f04<>>C^O+fll  Maggie Leycester, the prettiest  girl in thc little mining village of  Darbystone, was unable to make up  her mind on the most vital question  in every maiden's afc. Shu had,  within a week, received two offers  of marriage. Both her suitors were  steady young men, working six days  '��������������������������� out of the seven in the darkness  far below the ground, and earning  good wages. But Maggie was in a  dilemma. She liked them both;  her tender heart rebelled against  accepting one and thus causing  pain to the other. So when Justin  .Tillman put up the all-important  question to her she bade him wait  her answer.  Two nights after her first proposal  David Barclay, Miilman's lifelong  chum, lai 1 his hand and heart at  kev feet, and begged her acceptance. She had instinctively expected st.ch an offer, and to David she  g-avc the same reply a3 she had  sent his chum away with. Hc must  go and give her time to consider  the matter.  She had rejected neither. Their  offers, so to speak, were hung up  for maUirer consideration, and  thus the matter stood when a sensational thing happened in the village.  There had been a burglary at  Darbystone Grange, the residence  ' of Lord Whi bland, and a largo  quantity of valuable plate taken  away. Some of the articles stolen  were family heirlooms, and his  greatest anxiety was to recover  tijem.  In conjunction with the local  police thc London men spent several  days at the Grange and in tho village itself, endeavouring to discover some trace of the missing property, but without success.  Thinking a big reward might be  of assistance in stimulating inquiry,  and possibly bear good fruit, Lord  .Vhitland offered ������������������500 for such information as would lead- to the recovery of thc stolen property. The  burglary was the one groat theme  in the lit .le mining village, and  never in the history of Darbystone  had there been so much excitement.  Now it appeared that amng" the  various pieces of evidence which  the police had secured were a number of finger-print marks. These  had been found on the woodwork  of the window through which an entrance to the Grange had been  effected, and also on the glass itself, i'holographs were taken of  these incriminating marks, and  these had been oompared with  those of all Lhe village suspects, but  yielded nothing upon which the  police might work.  More than a week passed, and the  authorities were no nearer clearing-  it. up than at thc beginning. Then,  just when everyone thought that the  police had given up all hope of  solving thc mystery, a new and  oven bigger sensation was sprung  upon llic village.  =rj-i t_ ti n=_ ���������������������������}-_���������������������������! ri i u-n-an d-ID avi d���������������������������B a-u~  clay wore arrested and charged  with I.ho burglary;  Darhystoiio  was    striken    dumb  when the news wc.it abroad,    and  own, and the whole of these from  the woodwork found to correspond  in every respect.  "Who was your companion?" was  naturally one of the first questions  which the police put to him, and  A without hesitation Millman impli-  f cated Barclay. In less than half an  hour David was confined in the adjoining cell, for the remaining  finger-print marks were soon established   as  belonging to  him.  This was the extent of the evidence which tho police offered at the  first  hearing,   and  upon  their  application a remand was granted for  a week   in order   that   additional  evidence might be obtained.  III.  When  thc date of    thc resumed  hearing came round the demand for  admission   to the court was    such  that only a tithe of those who clamoured for    accommodation    within  coufd   be   admitted.    But    among!  those  who  succeeded    in    gaining  an entrance was Maggie Leicester.  Whatever some of her neighbors  might think of the two young men  who stood in the do^k on so serious a charge,  she had not passed  judgment on either.    She could not  bring    herself    to    beiicve    them  guilty.    For both there was in her  heart a great pity, a loyalty, whieh  made her strong and fearless in her  championship of their innocence.  Suddenly a breathless hush fell  upon the packed court. The solicitor for thc prosecution was on his  feet. His strong, clear voice was  ringing through the building.  "Your worships," he began, "before I proceed with my case this  morning I have an important application to make."  The crowd strained forward with  eager ears, anxious not to miss a  single syllable.  "I have," continued the prosecuting -lawyer,, '-to ask-your worships to grant the release of the  prisoner Justin Millman on the  ground that he has turned King's  evidence, and is prepared to give  valuable information, which it is  confidently hoped will lead, to the  recovery of the whole of Lord  Whitland's missing property, and at  the same time show that Barclay  was the only one actually implicated  in the removal of the articles from  the Grange."  Something like a suppressed hiss  swept over the court.  M~-;gic Leycester's face grew  strained. Her lips twitched nervously. Her eyes darted flashing  glances in the direction of Millman,  who, with chin held low upon his  breast, stood in view of thc whole  court a pitiable object.  A brief whispered consultation  between the justices and their  clerk ensued, and then the- chairman announced that Millman would  he discharged from custody.  Picking up his hat from thc floor  of the dock, Justin, still keeping  his glance averted' from those in  court, slowlv left the side of his  chum and took his place in the witness-box to bear damaging testimony against him.  Having been sworn, the witness  who had turned King's evidence  against his friend said :���������������������������  "Nearly three weeks ago David  Barclay, one night after wc had left  the reading-room, suggested to me  that  we  shoe. A'    break    into    the  throughout Use \itlage not a single  inhabitant could be found to believe  in the guilt of either of these  younj. men. To have arrested them  was a shameful blunder on thc part  of the -police, and Darbystone had  no doubt whatever that once the  matter was invescod at the local  petty sessions Ihero would be an instant acquittal, at., the two young  miners would leave the court without a stain upon their characters.  JL  But in this respect the good people of Darbystone were mistaken.  Thoy were much out of thoir reckoning, as th. evidence which the  police .ere able to put before the  magistrates quickly showed.  Only tho previous day, such was  the testimony of the prosecution,  one of the London detectives had  gone up to the Grange for a last  examination before leaving when,  in a thickly-shrubbed part of the  ornamental ground, he picked up a  largo red cotton pocket-handker-  ehiof, in one corner of which,  worked roughly in while darning  wool, were thc initials "J. M."  With litis elite it wa.s not difficulty  I'j. identify the owner, and whim  .'lust in .Mi.l.m.i was confronted wilh  his prop'.fly iie had no alternative  but lo admit its ownership, at the  name time stoutly denying all knowledge as lo the means by which it  found its way to Darbystone  Grange  Then the finger-print marks which  \v\d been found o.i thc woodwork  and   .la/.; were compared with hi.s  Gra/1gc. He said-heTlcnew where  all thc plate and old things were  kept, and that if we got hold of  some of lhe articles wc could get  a lot of money for them. At first  I refused to have anything to do  with iho job, but he pressed me so  hard, saying that there was no  chance of our being nabbed, that  at last 1 agreed, though my heart  wiis not in the thing. " Therrhowent  in while I. kept watch. I waited  about twenty minutes, when he  came ont to the lawn carrying a  lot of things wrapped up" in his  coat. He carried everything away  himself. .1 touched nothing. Then  we wont to the Old Black. Stam  workings, where he dug a deep hole  and buried everything he had  brought away. I have since shown  the police the spot where thc things  wore buried, and they have all been  recovered."  Jn thc end David Barclay was  committed to take his trial at the  Assizes,  bail being refused.  IV.  From that day Justin Millman  became a social outcast in the village of Darbystone People turned'away from him with a rigidity  whieh completely isolated him from  his fellows. On all sides his conduct was declared to be cowardly  and unmanly, and, whilst every  hand was raised against him, the  sympathy of all went out to David  Barclay, waiting alone in his prison cell.  Millman had been bound over to  appear at the Assizes to give evidence against his chum, and it was  generally agreed that unless the unexpected happened the testimony  of the Crown witness would be sufli-  cient to get Barclay committed.  Meanwhile Millman had been paid  over the ������������������500 reward.  It was the eve of the Assizes,  which were to be held at the neighboring county town, and Maggie  Leycester was laying out her best  clothes for the morning, she having  made up'her mind to attend the  trial. She had just come downstairs  when a nervous knock took her to  the frontdoor. Darkness was setting down, and in the half light she  failed at. first to recognise the  visitor, but this matter was quickly  decided as the well-known voice of  Justin Millman greeted her. -  Her first impulst was to bang the  door in his face and bid him begone about his business���������������������������such was  thc contempt and anger his conduct had aroused in her���������������������������but something in his tone stopped her. She  listened.  "Maggie, 1 know you have lost  your good opinion of me," he began, in a low, pleading voice, "but  what I have done I have done for  your sake only. I turned King's  evidence to earn money for you."  His audacity filled her with sheer  amazement, and for the moment  deprived her of speech. Then thc  floodgates of her fury burst upon  him.  "Accept a coward's money I"  she cried, with a scorn which made  him wince "Never! How dare  you come with your tainted money  lo me, who believed you a man .  No ! I spurn you and the money  you would try to buy my honor  with.    Go!"  As he slunk away in the darkness  a great yearning to possess this  girl as his wife came upon him,  and he halted, making as if to return.  As this thought shaped itself in  his mind a noise of light footsteps  coming from the direction of Maggie Leycester's house reached him.  Very soon through the darkness  he was able to distinguish, the form  of the girl who only a few minutes  before had thrust him from her,  and then hc heard his name called  in a low whisper, "Justin!" It  was tho old, familiar form of address.  "Maggie!" he exclaimed, with a  joyous movement forward.  "I  spoke perhaps    hastily    just  now," she said, in the same voice.  "If you did, Maggie, it is not for  mc to fall out with you for it," hc  replied  wistfully.  "Do you remember how a few  weeks ago you asked me to be your  wife?" she went on boldly.  "That 'j. do," he returned, with  a new-born hope and joy quickening his pulse throbs.  ���������������������������'Well, I give you my answer tonight," she proceeded.  "Yes, yes," he cried unable to  restrain himself at the unexpected  turn things had taken.  "I will be your wife on one condition, and that is that yo udo not  appear at the "Assizes to-morrow  to give evidence against David  Barclay," and with these words  something like a sob escaped her.  "But 1 dare not. I should be  arrested," hc exclaimed, fearfully;  and then, with a great jealousy,  "Why should 1 not tell the truth  against Barclay?"  She paid no heed to his words.  "Do you agree or not?" she ask-  cdri m p a t"i_n tty.  'I. dare not," hc repeated.  "Not for my sake?" she went on,  in a different voice in which he  thought hc caught'a note of pleading. "You have asked me to be  your wife You have told mc  again that you love me, and yet you  hesitate to make a sacrifice on my  behalf."  -"Ah!" -Iiis voice was -hoarse  and thick. "What you now seek is  fur David Barclay's sake I see it  all. 1 am not blind, To save him  from a prison cell you are willing  to bind yourself to me. "You love  him, and would save him. Without  my evidence the case against him  will collapse and he will "go free1'  She was silent. Of what use  were denials?  "To save David Barclay you will  marry me?" he said, slowly.  "Yes," she replied, with touching simplicity.  "And vou solemnly pledge yourself to tliat?"  "Yes."  "If I agree, how am I to escape  the penalty for not turning up at  the court to-morrow?"  "You must leave the country and  go abroad. I will join you later  when , things have-blown over,"  she responded, quietly. "You have  still time to make your arrange  ments and catch the midnight mail  for London. From there you can  easily get a steamer to the Continent. You can write t_. when you  arc settled, and I will come out to  J'0"-"  "I  accept  the conditions,"    he  said, "yet���������������������������"  Bub Maggie had gone  V.  The next morning David Barclay  stepped briskly into.the dock of the  Assize Court, and as he gazed upon the sea of faces which surrounded him on all sides, the sad, pensive eyes of-Maggie Leycester melius.  Smiles of recognition passed between them, and then'the court was  hushed, for eounselfor the Crown  had risen to open the ease.  .:-.' In a masterly speech he outlined  the evidence which, would be called, and then the name of Justin  Millman rang through the court.  He was the prosecution's first and  most essential witness. But to tho  repeated calls, of his name there  was no response Messengers were  hastily dispatched to search the precincts of the court, but in vain,  Then the case was put back for a  little time whilst the prosecution  gob into telephonic communication  with Darbystone in order to ascertain if any light could be thrown  on the whereabouts of the missing  witness. Presently a message came  that Millman had left his lodgings  late the previous night and had not  been seen since.  Then up jumped the counsel for  the defence and applied that, as thc  case against his client had broken  down, he should be at once discharged.  "If the case had gone on,  my- lord," said the barrister  who had been entrusted with  Barclay's defence, "there would  have been a' dramatic sequel  to the appearance in the box  of the Crown's missing witness,  for he wouid have assuredly changed places with the prisoner in tho  dock. 1 think it is only fair to my  client to say now, publicly in this  court, that he is the victim of a vile,  conspiracy. He had absolutely  nothing to do with the burglary,  which was planned and carried out  entirely by the Crown's missing-  witness.  "My client, as a matter of fact,  was not present at the Gr'ange  when the robbery took place, and  we offer, as accounting for tho  presence-of his finger-prints upon  .the glass, thc explanation that on  the morning following the burglary  he -was one of the first to arrive at  the Grange, and there is no doubt  that in examining the broken window he inadvertently left the incriminating marks behind him. We  admit that Barclay was-approached  by Millman to join him in the committal of thc crime, but that he took  the slightest part in th_> business  wc absolutely, deny. The Crwn's  missing witness is well aware of  that, and dare not come here   to-  daJ'- . -.   .  "There is just one point which,  in my client's interest, CI should  like to clear up. "When he was arrested and charged, it might, be  asked why he did not at once fake  steps to vindicate himself.. Why  did he.not, like his fulse friend,  turn King's evidence? Because a  sense of loyalty prevented him from  deserting this friend. He recognised that up to a certain point  there was strong circumstantial  evidence against   him.  "Not only'-did Millman, in order  lo save his own skin, and also incidentally to earn the handsome  reward offered by Lord Whit-land,  turn Kings's evidence, but at the  sam c time~la 1 _��������������������������� ica tec!  court and shook hands  with    him  again and again.  And Maggie Leycester ? What  of her during all this stirring excitement?  Had she known what was going  to happen, what would-her actions  of the previous night have been 1  But it was too late now. She was  pledged to another, and when  David Barclay came to her she was  sure he would ask for her answer.  As she returned-home it seemed  that all that was worth having in  life had suddenly slipped away from  her.  Three or four days, but still  David Barclay did not call. In a  sense she was glad, for "the delay,  gave her opportunity to preparo  for the ordeal which she knew she  must face.  At the end of the week a foreign  letter  came  from  Justin  Millman.  "Dear Maggie," he wrote "you  need not keep your promise to me..  I release you. You are free Marry  David. 1 have seen all in the English papers. It is all true I de- .  serve every honest man's condemnation ; but after all what I did was  for your sake. I saw with an overpowering jealousy that you cared  for David, and my idea of the  Grange job was to blacken him in  your estimation, but it has all turned out so differently from what,I intended that I accept what has happened as an intervention from  Providence.

As the learned counsel finished  speaking, the pent-up feeling of the  court found expression in a wild  outburst of cheering, which the  officials vainly tried to check. And  then the judge directed David Barclay to be released.' The cheering  broke out again with deafening  force Dazed by the strangeness of  it all, the freed miner, as he stopped out of the dock, halted near  the barrister's table a.s If undecided where to go; and then some  of his friends, regardless of the  strident cries of the ushers for silence,  rushed into the well of   the  The Italian bureau of emigration  supplies the following information  about female emigration to the  United States:  "It sometimes happens' that a  woman residing in America comes  to Ibaly and returns to tho United  States accompanied by four or five  young girls whem she passes as her  daughters or relatives.: She is generally-met at,the pier, by male ac-���������������������������^.  complices who-either pass as the-'  girls' fathers or else are willing to  marry the girls to overcome any  opposition on the part of the Ameri-.  can authorities against their landing. It is-needless to say that such  marriages are a mere formality and  that the girls remain at the morcy  of thc woman.who imports them.  It has also ������������������een ascertained that  the custom prevails among certain  groups of Sicilians in New York and  Chicago for the fathers to give their  daughters in marriage to the highest bidder on condition of never see-.  ing them again. Thc prices given  for such marriages vary from $250  to $350.

As a remedy against these evils  the bureau of emigration proposes  a special law which prohibits the  granting of .passports to women under 21 whose parents do not reside  in America.  SAVING INIANTS LIVES.  Value of Milk Pasteurization Shown  in Oilk'ial Report.  Convincing testimony as to tho  value of milk pasteurization, as advocated by Nathan Straus, of New  York, is contained in a British Blue  Book issued the other day.  The death rate for children under  ,. has been reduced from G7.8 per  1,000 in 1857 to 40.9 per 1,00 in  1907. This decline is attributed to  the administrative measures and  the greater attention given to the  supply of milk. In ten towns depots have been opened for the supply of pasteurized milk for infants.  Of all European countries only Holland has a lower rate: of infant  mortality than Britain.  This Blue Book has been prepared under the instructions of John  Burns, President of the Local Government Board, as a response to  the charges formulated in a report.  o\' the Poor- Law Commission of  Enquiry issued last February, and  is designed to show the general improvement in thc health and social  conditions oE the' British people  since 18&9-, //  1  AMMONIA  POWDER  It Has no Equal  Ask Your Grocer  For It  Don't Aoocpt  Just as Oood  WE GLEAN UP  EVERYTHING  Sate the Coupom  enclosed    in    each  . package  and   com  pete for i.

AM) YVOX'T CHANGE.  \\i\\ Not Change His Habits After  Marriage.  It is pretty safe to calculate that  if you don't like your lover's ways  or habits before marriage, you will  not like them any better after the  ceremony. He may'make all sorts  ;of promises, but 'promises are like  pie crust, made to be broken." He  may ''turn over a new leaf," but  you have no assurance, but his, that  the leaf will stay turned. . We are  very likely to underestimate the  strength of habit, especially in  others. We forget hoy. much habit  means in our own case, and think  it costs others less to give up than  it costs us.  For instance, the girl who marries  a man who smokes, expecting he'll  give, up his cigars for her sake, discovers that he remains pretty much  as he was, if not worse. In the  course of a long obseravtion, I've  never found a case where the woman's influence or wish was strong  er than the man's love for his  "harem of dusky beauties," says a  writer. Many times the man has  "sworn off" before marriage "to  please her,"oand cither temporarily  stopped or smoked on the quiet,  only to resume openly when the  knot was safely tied. Her best way  is to accept the habit with the man  and do it without nagging, or else  bid" him go away, and camp "on the  trail of some man who really hasn't  the habit.  WEED CUTTINGS. -  In Egypt an enormous amount of  trouble and expense has been caused by the weeds and other vegetable  growths which spread so rapidly as  to choke canals and other waterways in _ few days. Clearing by  hand has been found-impossible in  one district, so a motor boat,has  been equipped with a unique weed  cutter and placed in service. The  cutting attachments consists of a  pair of V shaped knives.with sharp  and powerful blades,- worked by  belt from thc propeller shaft. They  trail alonj the bottom of the waterway, cutting the growth off at bhc  roots. It is said that the little boat  will clear as much as five acres an  hour.  Just when the coffee thinks it has  good ground for complaint, the egg  drops in and settles the whole business.

Tread  lightly, there!  WHEN Robert Waddell took  over what is now the Hazelmere Ranch, three years ago, he  did not know all there was to be  known about farming.    And he  knew it.  But he knew this much:  he knew one of  the requisites  was a large measure of straight  hard work: and that in order to  cultivate and harvest a field successfully,   it was necessary to  make his' fences straight and to  get the stumps out.   To back up  this knowledge, Mr; Waddell had  the advantage of an early_Scotch  training,   that taught  him the  importance of system in everything he had to do, and that Fear  is  man's   -worst   enemy.     He  had and has an abundance of the  intrepid spirit that never lets a  Scotchman  know he's   beaten.  Three years ago, undaunted by  the  task before him,   and unbeaten  in  life's  struggles,   he  rolled up his sleeves and went at  it.   The first season he was alone.  That year he pull the stumps on  the cleared land of the Hazelmere and,  in addition,  brought  20 acres more under the plow;  replaced the crooked fences with  straight, and opened by wagon  road a large portion of the land  that had heretofore been closed.  The second year he added nearly 60 acres more of clearing, and  this year, 40 acres.   The 60 acres  brought under the plow last year  is this year producing barley and  wheat, and from  the 40 acres  plowed for the first time this season and seeded on the 15-16th of  June, he is harvesting a thousand-dollar crop of oats.   The cost  of clearing and breaking this 40  acres was $800, or less, so it will  be seen that the first crop, grown  and threshed in three months,  will pay all the cost of clearing,  seeding and harvesting.   As the  curbstone philosopher would say,  "that's going  some"���������������������������or some  growing.  In all, Mr. Waddell has 600  acres in the Hazelmere Ranch,  half of which is under the plow  and in hay. All of it is������������������_evel land  and very productive. From his  regular oat field of 30 acres he  stacked 100 loads of grain���������������������������and  this is a light-straw season, too.  Mr. Waddell estimates that the  product of the ranch this season  will reach nearly $7,000. He aims  to make the annual output reach  $10,000, independent of the poultry. And he will do it. He will  do it because he has systematized  everything about the Hazelmere.  Go where you will: in the stables,  grainery, implement shed, work  shop���������������������������in all combined, you will  fin,d less confusion than you can  see in some woodsheds. Every-  .hmg-=is-put-away,_=,clean_=and-in-  its place.  Mr. Waddell is an advocate of  the policy that aims to put legs  to" everything raised upon the  farm���������������������������feed it to stock and sell  the stock. And lie believes a  scrub animal will eat as much as  the animal of quality, so he is  confining himself to pedigreed  stock. In this he is assisted by  Mrs. Waddell, who has followed  poultry as a hobby in the Home  Land, and has taken entire  charge of the Hazelmere poultry  yards, assisted by men who know  how. If the Hazelmere does not  rival Fishel in a year or two, we  miss our guess. Everything is  white about the Hazelmere yards,  White Wyandotte and White  Leghorn are the breeds they are  advancing. In each they have  the best strains known to the  American poultryman. It certainly is a picture to see these  hundreds of snow-white birds  gathered in the ideal yards and  runways prepared for them.  The Hazelmere is showing a  cockerel and pullet at the World's  Fair, Seattle, and will be represented at all the big fall and winter shows.  Painters are now employed repainting the Hazelmere home.  White set off by green will be the  new color. . When completed it  will present a very striking appearance and will be the prettiest  home scene on the river. The  flower garden about the home  has attracted much attention this  season, but it does not compare  with the floral beauty which Mrs.  Waddell is planning for next season. In her rose arbor alone she  will have 300 rose trees.  Mr. and Mrs. Waddell are  bringing the Hazelmere up to the  highest standard. It has. each  year excelled the previous year,  for the three years they have  had it, and it is Mr. WaddelPs  determination to "add 40 acres to  crop each season until he has redeemed every acre of the 600  from the wild.
