Committee's remarks: The double  games will have to be played on the  dates named, as any changes or postponements would only mix matters  worse than ever.  The committee suggest that the possession of the cup be decided by the  outcome of the first round, as several  of the rinks are already broken up.  ���������������������������not made. No doubt this is right-  still-born. In the case of Mister  George L. Pedlar, I (pardon the slip)  think so. George was more an editor when he was a schoolmaster than  most'anybody knew. On one-occasion  we had the pleasure .of calling upon  Mr. Pedlar in his boudoir, in the eve-  draw close   to   the  every curler's coat.  button   beneath  direction and to loosen up his joints;  draws back and lets her go.  ,"The stone goes booming down the,  ice and the skip yells, 'Sweep!'

Bonspiel    is    a compound  word, bon    being    short for  'bonne,'  meaning, in French, a servant or an  old maid, aud spiel being a colloquial  chunk   of    slang,    meaning   a vocal  eruption issuing from the main gash  in thc face.     Hence bonspiel, bonne'  spiel, or a lot of cackling by a bunch  of old maids.

At first there was a  mocking smile on his lips, but it gave  way try a look of exquisite agony. His  face turned livid, his eyes rolled upward, he gasped and swayed. They saw  his muscles stiffen, his lips twitch, and  then with a moan, he fell to the floor  with a crash, hurling the glass to bits  igainst the wall with the last movement of his arm.  Fischer, who during all this had remained on the floor, unable to move,  scrambled to his feet, forgetful of  bruises, and rushed to the side of the  prostrate Hopkins. The others, roused  from the stupor into which this tragedy  had thrown them, joined the German  professor iu lifting tho inert body to  ihe table. Rice seized a wrist, while  Sordon put his ear to tho man's heart.  Pear predominated in the questioning  looks which they threw at each other.  Fischer caught up a bottle of ammonia  md began applying it to the unconscious man's "nostrils. Snyder hurried  aervously about for water. For five of  the longest minutes in their lives they  labored to resuscitate the victim of  >f their unfortunate espionage.  Rico broke the awful silence.  "Uentleineii," he said, in a whisper  that was scarcely audible, "I am afraid  chat our efforts are useless.''  "He/is not���������������������������dead?" gasped Gordon.  "lie is," said Fischer. And he rais-  -id the white hand that he had been  "holding in-his and laid it reverently  leniss the breast of the man on the  table. They .looked at "each other in  terror. It is ono thing to destroy a  man's reputation, it is another thing to  "till tho man himself. Yes, kill; for  ibey could not help thinking that they  were directly responsible  for Hopkins'  juicido.  For a moment there was not a sound  but the breathing of the guilty quar-  ;ette. Then footsteps wore heard. In  i sudden frenzy of fear Snyder reached  ip to the electric light button that depended near him, and pressed it. The  laboratory was plunged into" darkness,  ["he footsteps came nearer along-the  ball, and stopped at the laboratory door.  \. hand tried the knob, and a voice call-  jd:  "Professor!   Processor Hopkins!"  Rice, standing next to Gordon, felt a  ipasmodic    movement    of    the    young  jian's body as the voice reached them.  Silently he' clutched at Gordon's sleeve.  Vnd then the voiee came again:  "Professor, let me in: it is Ernesta."  Another pause and the listening four  magined   they  could   hear  an   exclam-  ition   of 'disappointment  or   petulance  -fronL-thc-flqeaker,. .Then another trial  if tho doorknob, anTI still another  pause. Sho. must be looking through  the keyhole. Thank heaven! one of  ;hem had had sense enough to extinguish the light. Then came the sound  if fr.olsteps retreating as though tho  ^irl had concluded that the professor  had gone.  It "seemed  hours before  any of  the  ni'ii  standing there in  the  inky dark  ie������������������s dared  to loose his voice.    Finally  ..i''iw.ljf.r-ni!iil������������������-bohl enough, to. whisper:.'  "She is gone! *'  For another interval them was no  novo by tlie others. At length Rice  ra'n!:  "Turn on the light!"  Snvder felt for the button and thr  ���������������������������nrmi" was flooded with light. Tho faee>  >f the living were scarcely less death  i.ikc than that of the man lying on the  table. There was but one thought in  the minds of all. I'tider ordinary cir-  mnistanccs, and, if they had been given  time for consideration, they would have  lismissed it; but now they "wore ��������������������������� in-  japable of thinking clearly. They must  ���������������������������jide   the  body.    Kicc  proclaimed  it.  "It is only' for Ihe present,'' he said  ipologetically. The others silently  igi-eed. The open door.-i of the cup-  loard suggested a temporary hiding-  ���������������������������dace. Thev put the limp form of Processor Hopkins iu ihe cupboard, "lock:  ng tho doors.  ���������������������������"'Let's leave it there for now," said  .lice, "until we can decide on some  ftorv as to how he met his death. It  nus't never be known that we broke  nto hi* room through the skylight."  "No," said Snyder, "now that he is  (cad,  for  his sake !"  "For our Kikes!" grunted Fischer  larshlv.  "This is no place for us to linger,  -aid Rice.    "Let us adjourn to Profes-  ,or Snyder's room to talk it over."  Raising tho ladder, tonyder went cut  he wuy that thoy had all come in. The  ,thers unlocked the door and went out  hat way, Kico locking the door after  hem.   in Snyder's room they gathered.  CHAPTER V.  The Light in the Cupboard  "There is one matter of extreme im-  lortance," said Rice, when it seemed  is though his companions were in a  raine or mind to receive the suggestion  .aluily. "Was that Ernesta Frost who  ried the door aud called Professor Uop-  cins' name?"  " "She  buid  so,"  was  Snyder's  eom-  nent.    '" It is I���������������������������Ernesta,'  were her  voras."  "Still " began Rice; but Fischer  ntercupted, saying:  "Come, come, Kico; ve know dat you  ire mathematically inclined; very goot.  .t pays to insist on proof before arriv-  ng at conclusions, and ve vould haf  been better oil if ve had vaited. But  let us not split straws. Dot vos Ernesta Frost for all practical purposes.  Admitting dat, vat?"  "That, being the case," went ou  Rice, acquiescent though not humbled,  ���������������������������'and we saw her, or her shadow, with  Hopkins in the laboratory only fifteen  minutes previous to that, she could not  have been very far away while���������������������������while  matters were going on. We must in  seme way discover if she heard what  transpired iu the room between us and  Hopkins." '  "He  certaiuly  spoke loud  enough,'  said Snyder, shuddering at the recollection of their victim's tirade.  "And vet," said Rice, "if she had  heard him" she would scarcely have gone  away without making furthor inquiry  than she did. 1 believe that she came  back to ask him something which she  had forgotten during the evening. Receiving no answer to her call, undoubtedly she returned home, to wait until  to-morrow morning."  "Yell?"   asked  Fischer  impatiently.  "A person hearing Ilopkin's. unjust  denunciation of our purpose might naturally have thought that we were thore  to offer him violence. In such-a case  it would be-most difficult to arrange an  explanation of his..death. If, .however,  there was no witness to the scene, we  have an opportunity to deny all-knowledge of the affair; unless,-of course,  vou gentlemen wish to have the actual  iruth become known."  "No!" came in unison from Fischer,  Gordon and Snyder. Rice could not  help smiling at tho rapidity with which  his companions had changed from absolutely honorable men to persons of  criminal bent. ' For it was a criminal  bent that permitted them even to consider the expediency of trying to hide  all connection with Hopkins' death.  Had the case been put ,to them hy-  pothetically, a day previous, there was  not one who would not. have counselled  a clean breast wilh assurance that it  always pays to tell the truth. Yet now,  confronted with an actual condition,  thev were all for subterfuge iu preference to straightforwardness.

To all such  l)r Williams' Pink Pills are an actual  life, saver. Miss Mabel McTavish, of  Prince Albert, Bask., says: "In. my case  [ can only sav that life had lost -its  magic: all work was a trial, and even  pleasure onlv a task. When f went up  a flight of stairs I. was ready to drop  from sheer weakness, and 1 had begun  to think life would be a continued burden But; all this is now changed, thanks  to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

It must be Ernesta Frost.. Cor  don ran to the door and opened il.  rhe others .heard' a woman's voice say.  "Oh, excuse me, Professor. L didn't  know anyone was in there. I was just  goin'  to "clean  the  room."  They gave a sigh of relief, for the  speaker was nobody but Mrs. Harms,  the scrub woman who customarily made  her rounds of the building at. this houi  of the evening. But they were in no  condition for a fresh shock, as could be  seen ;by the way they trembled as they  resumed their seats.  The scrub woman's presence in thc  building reminded them that quick action was necessary if they were to  decide on a course of procedure that  night. Rice, as usual, became spokesman  for  their  sentiments.  "Gentlemen," he said, for the first  time showing impatience, "we must ai-  rive at a conclusion. What are we  going to do and say in this matter''  Come; has nobody a suggestion but  me?"  "I have." said Fischer, "and it iss  dis. Der body vill haf to be discovered  in der morning, anyvay.

Ve  found der door of dot room open, and  inside on der floor lay der body. Dat  iss all."  . "Whereupon," said Rice, falling into  Fischer's manner of phraseology, "we  sound the alarm, and our story is ae-  cootcd*  "Dat iss it," said Fischer. Turning  to Gordon and Snyder, who remained  silent, he asked, "Vot do you gentlemen tink of dat'plan?"  Before either could reply an unearth  ly   shriek  through   tho   building.  fhe four professors were on their feet,  stiff with terror. Again the shiek rang  out.,' It came unmistakably from the  second floor. This time there.could be  but one interpretation. Ernesta Frost,  returning again, had ��������������������������� found- Professor  Hopkins* body," and was forestalling  tho conspirators -in giving the alarm.  At breathless speed the four mon dashed from Snyder's room and up the  stairs; tho screams continuing all-- the  while. They found thc laboratory door,  which tney had locked, wide open.  Rushing in, they found, not Ernesta,  but Mrs." Harms, backed up against the  wall, still uttering ear-piercing shrieks.  Fischer flew at her, and clapped oue  hand over her mouth, while with the  other he supported her, for she would  have fallen from fear.  A fresn terror seized the guilty four.  What had the scrub woman seen? How  would she accuse them? A cry from  Gordon drew their gaze in the direction  of the cupboard in the further end of  thc room.  Li thc gloom a strange, penetrating,  whitish light emanated from the doors  of tho cupboard in which the body was  concealed!  "It's only some chemicals," faltored  Rice to thc scrub woman. "For heaven's sake  be  still! "  "Chemicals!"  she  repeated.     "I���������������������������1  ������������������.l ,.!.������������������    _1-.+ linnrrli+ -LI   -u1iimg-������������������Tr-=--i������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������) tl^l.t   "What?" demanded Gordon, half  afraid to hear her answer.  <>l���������������������������x don't know," said the woman.  "Hut T wish Professor Hopkins wouldn't leave such things around to frighten  a poor woman! "  "It's nothing," said Rice. "But as  it seems to have unnerved you, perhaps you had better go. Wo will lock  tho d'oor and see that everything is  nil   right."  " Uo' half pushed the woman-from the  room and  escorted  her downstairs.  Only when he had heard her go onl  at the front door of the college did he  return to the shuddering trio ou the  threshold of the laboratory.  He looked at the laboratory door once  morn without realising what he wa-  doing, and then he turned to gaze at  the cupboard. Tlie doors were still  closed, disguising, but not concealing,  their hideous secret. With trembling  hands Rice opened the cupboard, swing  ing the doors apart with a sudden movement of his arm.  With exclamations of horror they  sprang back. On the floor of tlie cup  board, in exactly the position, in' which  thev had left it. was the body of Pro  fessor UonkiiiS. Tt Avas-luminous! From  every part of it came a strong, cloai  light, so powerful that it had penetrated  the thick doors of the closet: so dazzling ' that it almost blinded them as  thev stared stupefied.  And, as their eyes became more accustomed to looking at the figure, they  discerned the face." It stared at them  with wide-open fiery eyes, and through  the parted lip." seemed to como a steady  glow of flame.  It was Fischer who first broke the  silence.    He said:  "My  Golt!

"  Detective Sullivan, standing within  earshot of a group of Graydon. students  strove to betray no interost in this ques  tion from one of the group; nevertheless, he listened attentively for .the  answer.  "Probably at home, working out  some of old Hoppy's chemical expert-  nents," said another student.  "I don't see what Ernesta sees w  :hat stuff," was the comment of a  .hird, a girl. "She's either up _at the  taborutory or in her room working all  tlie-time."  "I  guess  Hoppy  pays  her   for   hev  work," suggested another.       '���������������������������"���������������������������"''"  "Perhaps she's trying to learn a lot  io she can help Professor Gordon .when  they get married," said a young, man;  'whereupon   the  girls' tittered. ,  The group scattered and wentvin  various directions. The detective followed two of its most loquacious mem  oers, hoping that he would hear more  concerning Ernesta, but he was disappointed. The students turned into a  dormitory at the foot of College Hill  without further comment on the young  woman.  But Sullivan had heard something  that surprised him.  "When she aud Professor Gordon are  married," one of the students had said.  So there was another complication, a  love ali'air, possibly an engagement, between the girl and one of the faculty.  .Mrs. Hopkins had told him nothing oi  this; doubtless she did not know of it.  But if it existed, what about the elopement with Professor Hopkins'?  The detective had left the Hopkins  house well pleased with himself at having so easily, by the mere turning of a  photograph,'discover the identity of the  girl. He had made a plausible excuse  for a young woman, more than ordin  arily prepossessing, being attracted by  a middle-aged college professor of high  mental attainments. But now it seemed  that Hopkins was not the only college  professor to have attracted Ernesta.  There was Gordon.   Who was Gordon?  A matter easily discovered, thought  Sullivan, as he mounted the elm-lined  road leading to the collegia Of course,  he could find that out in tXje^oruing,  and. perhaps, if be were to approach  Professor Gordon very carefully he  might learn of a quarrel between him  and Ernesta. Perhaps the fact of her  disappearance with Hopkins . was the  result of sudden pique.  "Tf the old fool was careless enough  f,c leave that note where his wife could  find it," he commented, "who knows  but maybe he has left something around  his laboratory that will give me the tip  as to where" they have gone. If Ihe  college isn't carefully guarded, and I  can find his laboratory in the dark. I  may be able to turn a little trick tonight."  (To be continued)  MOTORING NOTES  IT might be a very good thing for  every driver of "a motor car to  seek an opportunity now and then  of riding in the front seat of another  car beside some other driver. It would,  perhaps, make him a trifle more thoughtful of the uneasiness caused his own pas  sengers when driving hi.������������������T own car. At  any rate he would not be a passengei  for long before he would be noting the  eiliciency of the brakes and the ability  of the dnvcr to operate them; and it is-  quite possible that if they did not seem  to respond as readily as they should he  would be trying to push the foot-board  out of the car in an effort'to assist in  bringing'the car to a stop.  Knowing .the importance of always  keeping the brakes of a ear in the most  perfect working order, the expert drivei  would no more think of driving hi?  ear with the brakes out of adjustment  or in poor working order, than he would  of running the motor without oil. Still  there are thousands of drivers throughout the country priding themselves upon  their ability of keeping a car in first-  class condition whose brakes really arc  most criminally neglected. There are  many drivers who do not know how to  -ad fj us t-+he-=-b r-a k esf-a-n d=tb arfcaxcuath er^  wlio know how tho adjustments should  bo obtained but when putting then  knowledge to the test find that theii  efforts are  not  greeted  with  success.  Starting a motor after it has been  standing out in the cold for a few hours,  or in a cold garage over night, is no  joke; and a few hints on how to start  with the least amount of cranking will  no doubt be appreciated by many. Per-  haps" the "best way "l.o~get"a motor started is to wrap a bunch of waste loosely  in a cloth, saturate it with gawoliue,  put n hulf-teaspoonful of gasoline in  each cylinder, turn ou the ignition aud  crank the motor. As soon as it starts,  run around and carefully place the saturated waste and cloth near the air intake of tho carbureter so that as the  nntor begins to slow down it may be  brought still closer and a combustible  mix!me be thus formed until the carbureter begins to carburet. Should this  fail, siuply remember the .old adage,  ���������������������������'If at first you don't succeed, try. try  again," and when the motor has become  sufficiently warm it will keep on running without the necessity of holding  the saturated waste and cloth near thc  .lir-inlnke of the carburetor.  11 i.- recommended that if the intake  manifold of the motor be lapped jus!  lbove the carbureter, and connection be  made with the acetylene gas tank, a  cold motor can be readily started and  run on acetylene, gas until the carburetor begins to deliver a suitable mixture.  Another way is to have a long piece of  rubber hose which can be attached al  Hue end to one of tho lamp leads, or  direct to the gas tank, and the othei  end stuck into the air-inlet of the carbureter; the gas can then be turned on  and a combustible mixture formed in  this way until tho carbureter is brr.ughi  into use. It is not universally known  that there is more than one grade of  gasoline on the market, and that with  he better grades a motor can be much  ftulcMy  stops eoliths*   cures colrU,   benls  tht> throat ���������������������������&<*, lund������������������.      ���������������������������   ���������������������������   ���������������������������      1"3 ceiit*  more readily started than when a poorer  grade of fuel is employed..

'������������������'������������������������������������������������������...*    ������������������  There is a prevailing idea ia tat  minds of maiiy motorists that iu a motor  with a circulating oiling system, in  which the lubricant is used ovor and  over again, that as long as tho proper  level is maintained in the crankcase. tb������������������  motor is being properly lubricated, li  even is claimed by the selling representatives of some motor car maun far. luring companies, that owing to the construction of tlio motors in the care  which they sell, leakage of oil from the  crankshaft ends is entirely eliminated  and their cars can run several thousand  miles without the necessity of replenishing the oil supply in the crankcase.  It is true there arc motors in earfi which  under favorable conditions can run a  couple of thousand, or perhaps ev������������������np  several thousand miles, -without reducing the level in tho crankcase to any  considerable extent, and a slight replenishment would permit of a eon pic o"  thousand more miles of travel; but th*  bearings of the motor must by th'w  time be in sore need of repair und adjustment.  It is not only necessary that the proper supply be maintained in the oil rosei  voir of a motor, but it is even more  important that tho proper lubricating  constituency of the oil be sustained and  not impaired by the accumulation o*'  solid particles of carbon. It is af,well  known fact that after the oil that i������������������  used in a circulating oiling system has  been on the job, so to speak, for a reasonable length of time it begins to lost  its clear aspect and lake on a murkj  color which, if ignored, in time become?  black." And if when this black oil is  drained from the case, one were to al- '  low some of it to run onto the forefinger it would be very thin and nt/i  very oily; and should it be rubbed b������������������- ���������������������������  tween the finger and the thumb it would  be found to contain a powdory, gritty  substance decidedly not good for hearings.  The requirements of a suitable lubricant for circulating oiling systems ai������������������"  that it be of a proper consistency U  feed well with the lubricating arrangements and under the temperature conditions required; of. such viscounty and  oiliness as to reduce friction to a injiw-  uiuin, and contain a minimumamoimt of .-.  constituents "prejudicial to its sustained  effect. .From tlie above statements it .  may be seen that when an .oil has boc:������������������. -  used for* too long a time it will have  lost in one of its most essential require- .  incuts, its viscosity, and taken. on aa.  excessive amount of what is referred lo  as a prejudicial constituent, granular  carbon. .The viscosity of an oil is'its  disposition to be creamy; it is a d.iki;  applied to the internal friction'betwect  the globules which restricts its fluidity,  and when it is stated that an oil has loai  ils viscosity, one is to infer that it ha?  lost its original creamy composition and  become more like skim milk. The fat ot  grease globules in an oil are thc ulo-  merits that keep the lubricated surfaces  sufficiently apart to' prevent rubbing;  and when these oily elements are burnt  in the cylinders of a motor a fine car  bon deposit is formed. Thus, when al*  or most of the oily contents of a" lubricant, are carbonized." it ceases to be an  effective lubricant and becomes more oi  an  abrasive.  Jn order that a motor may be'properly lubricated the entire crankcase sup  ply should be drained but and replaced  wilh fresh oil about once a month, or  _inoreH,requerrt-l}V"if-t'ie=car--isidoJrrg-c-ori-=====  linuons and heavy duty, as when running under very muddy conditions, or  on the lower gears on rough or hillr  roads for any length of time. It is also  advisable, after the oil has been loft  in thc crankcase for an unusually longr  time, to flush the crankcase out wilk  kerosene to remove the sediment.  THE  HOBBIES.

Every week sees new styles exhibited, now materials and new colors until the average  brain grows fairly dizzy trying to decide upon which  really is the smartest and most desirable model to choose. It  is acknowledged that the hat is all important in a woman's  ���������������������������utfit, and there must be a suitable hat for each and every  occasion if a strict adherence to thc laws of fashion be contemplated, and each and every hat must be becoming and  distinctive. "With these rules to follow it can readily be  understood that too much time and thought cannot be expended iu quest of fashionable headgear.  Tho models are so varied this year that it is more confus-  ' - s  Black .Velvet Hat with Blue Eows  .ing than usual to select.just what is wanted. One moment  'largo hats aro declared absolutely,the one, and only style; the  acxt moment "thc small-hat is firmly stated to be correct  fashion, and there arc so many of medium size, neither large  ���������������������������or small, that are extremely attractive and very smart. The  picturesque- style is much in evidence, aud while thc fashion  is a dangerous one for the majority of women to follow blindly, it is often most" satisfactory, because it can be so distinctive aud original. , A soft mob cap of velvet with an  iritudo plcatiug of fine lace, a twist of satin ribbon around  the crown, and a bunch of liny silk roses at one side is a  favorite model, one that hitherto- has been associated more  Vith fashions for children, but now is chosen for grown  women.. There are. some faces to which this hat is extremely  becoming; to others it is grotesque and most unbecoming.  Large hats are more often on the picture order, but all  large hats are not picture hats. At the moment the large  hats aro considered smartest for tlie afternoon ami evening,  vrhile the small and medium size arc relegated to tho more  severe styles of dress. For the theatre hat, the hat to be  worn in a box at the theatre, thejarge hat continues to be  is large as turkey wings encircle small turbans and toques or  ire massed together at the side of a medium size soft velvet  turban. Long still" quills, black and white, made of velvet,  iloth and a few real feathers, are. most effective, and are  used in* the hats made of cloth and satin, or satin and velvet,  ind the willow feathers, so exquisite in detail and coloring  md so becomingly soft and graceful, trim-the velvet hats  of medium size. A charming model of a rather stiff black  velvet hat of medium size with a brim turned up at one side  is trimmed with a cluster of short willow feathers in bright  emerald green. The contrast of the feathers and hat is so  marked that it would excite attention at once, and then thc  hat is so becoming it is not to be wondered at that it is  i most popular model.  Flounces and fur are two most fashionable trimmings this  winter and aro used separately\and together. The flounces  are most effective in coloring and of the finest workmanship.  The silk and velvet -flounces are especially noticeable and  the colors most unusual. The rather flat, low crowned hat  of velvet and of beaver and velvet, combined is a very smart  with .the wreath of flowers around Jthe crown, and the lack  of height in the trimmir-g and hat, gives a. certain air of distinction and individuality that the more eccentric shapes  often lack." One point about these hats which makes  them beloved by those to whom they are becoming  is that \they are not becoming to many faces and  never are dangerously popular in consequence'. They are  most deceptive in appearance, for only the initiated can recognize at a glance tho master hand in their manufacture. So,  while seemingly  simple, they require  to be  most  carefully  -fT.?*.  **',"''.!''      ,'     ''���������������������������     o/*  1  ������������������ ::'V- :\������������������ 'jM  * -i.,\��������������������������� A " ;!', LL. tWat  r: ;:<*ZMk  w������������������mttm  *��������������������������� >'',*^^^SSI  i^JHM  xa'.\i g^wl*m&&������������������  h-''������������������'MMmMmi  fr'-^W5.

The. shaded ostrich  plumes are thc most fashionable this winter, and the colorings are exquisitely beautiful. Mlack shading to gray aud  white, two or three tones of blue or purple, all shading to  very light, are put on black velvet hats both of large and  -���������������������������mall size.

Tho feathers used aro all most perfect and are extremely  'ixpe.n.sive. Aigrettes are also to be counted among the expen-  dve -trimmings, but in both instances there is at least tho  satisfaction that the money expended "shows." It is not  ttniy a question of line, but beauty of workmanship as well  is the quality of the feathers.  Strange and weird feathers, plumes and stiff wings are  ���������������������������to bo noticed in'this winter's millinery. The most learned  ornithologist would have a task beyond his powers to name  any bird on which such feathers grew, such startling combination of color and design and such quantities of feathers as aro  used to trim the simplest of hats.   Two and three spread out  HOW  A   TIGER,  WAS   CAPTURED  THE interest of a community iu thc  Malay Peninsula was lately excited   by   the  announcement"that   a  fine  tiger  had  been  captured  in  a  pit  situated  in  a  Chinaman's  garden.  The pit in which the tiger was caught  was circular, eleven feet deep, and throe  feet in diameter, contracting slightly at  the bottom. It was dug in sandy clay,  and as the sides were clean-cut the tiger  was not able to escape by scrambling  out. The situation was on the margin  of a jungle forest, and the pit. along  with others, had been dug for the purpose of capturing wild pigs. These pits  were covered with thin sticks and grass  or leaves.  As soon as the owner of the pit into  which the tiger had fallen was aware of  his prize, he covered the mouth of the  pit with strong planks and at once looked around for a purchaser, who was soon  found. The sum of twenty-five pounds  was paid for the tiger as it lay at the  bottom of the pit, and it afterward cost  fifty pounds to have him caged and conveyed to Singapore.  For nearly,six days the captive lay in  the pit, his captor feeding him very  sparingly in order to reduce his energy.  The operation of caging the beast was  intrusted to six Malays, who, as a race,  are noted for their knowoldge of woodcraft and of the habits of animals.  The Malays went to work very cleverly. Every detail of their plan was ordered admirably, so that no accident  could occur.  The first step was to rig up s strong  beam at a height of about nine feet over  the pit, and this was supported on well-  secured uprights, to which it was securely lashed with  withes.  Next there were prepared two cylindrical baskots made of green rattan.  Oue of these baskets measured two'feet  in diameter and eight feet in length.  The other was made just largo-enough  to be passed into the larger one,-for the'  purpose of giving additional strength  to the contrivance. One-end of each  basket was left open, while the other  was closed with the exception of a hole  about three inches in diameter, the  use of which will  presently appear.  Thc smaller basket having been jammed into the larger one,' the walls of  both were firmly laced together throughout with.Avithes to obviate any chance  of slipping.       . ' J '<"  Finally two new hemp-ropes two and  three-quarter inches-in circumference  were prepared with running noosos. As  soon as a few long polesjiad been cut  and. prepared, with forks- on" some ���������������������������of  them and pieces of wood lashed on'  others to form Jiooks, the Malays were  ready to take' care of the tiger.

Velvet Hat with Ostrich Plumes  made, otherwise they lack style and are anything but smart.  Made in colored velvet to match the gown with which it is  to be worn, this hat affords a fine opportunity to carry out  any scheme of one color or a color contrast, the flowers of  different shades and of velvet and silk showing to the best  possible advantage against the velvet.  Rough beaver hats of all kinds are extremely smart this  season, and the useful soft black beaver is very popular. Worn  as a knockabout, useful piece of headgear it is most satisfactory. Trimmed with anything, oven a black or white  cockade or fantasy, it is smart. There is another shape,  something the same in effect, but not so soft and shapeless.  This can be trimmed effectively with colored stiff feathers;  one style has the feathers placed toward tho back; another  has the feathers, either two stiff on������������������s or three soft ostrich  tips, at the left side. Then there are the beaver hats trimmed with only a velvet bow across the. front or at one side;  the velvet, put through a piece of the material, is in two  loops, with no ends, and lies flat against the hat. The beaver  has quite a long nap and is becoming in any shade. Thore arc  more effective shapes in white with a black velvet bow, but  the. white is not so practical aH color, and is most suitable for  the girl who does not have to count the pennies she.sponds on  her clothes and consequently enn buy any number of hats.  There are shades of light tan in this shape that are more practical and look well with fur coats. A bit of fur is sometimes  substituted for the velvet bow. but it is not so smart, for the  great charm of this model is its simplicity.  INKS AND FORGERY  X *\ Knowledge, "Mr. Ainsworth Mit-  i. chell, who, it will be remembered,  recently gave evidence in a case  dealing with a forged will, has a striking aiticlo on inks. Incidentally he  lets his readers into the secret as to  Uli'JcJl *>yhjj"h_ho_ nppljcs in _order Jo  discover the age of any particular piece  of writing. If it is shown that thc  ink on a document purporting to bo  drawn up, say. ten years ago, is really  fpiite fresh, then there is every chance  that the writing has been forged. An  examination of tho color of tho ink may  be helpful. Blue-black ink may be recognized as fresh up to the sixth day.  and in after years its age may be told  when thc blue provisional pigment has  faded and left only thc black. The  blue coloring as time goes on is hardly  acted upon by reagents, but for a year  or two it is. Jn fact, writing done  within that time will at once diffuse if  treated with a fifty per cent, solution  of acetic acid, whereas when it is five  or six years old, diffusion, if it takes  place at all, is very slow and limited in  extent.  A still more useful reagent is a saturated solution of oxalic acid which causes thc pigmont of relatively fresh writing to give an immediate smudge, but  has very little if any effect on writing  six or eight years old.  The first occasion on which chemical  evidence as to the age of an ink has  been given in thc law courts was in the  The Bowels Must Act Healthily���������������������������It  most ailments the first care of the. medi  cal man. is to see that the bowels an  open and fully performing their func  tions.

Have thc germs of tetanus been put  into your blood, and_do you feel the  effects of the tight jaw ?  HAVE YOU BEEN VACCINATED ?  <*>  CITY OF ENDERBY  Assessment, Year 1911  COURT OP REVISION  NOTICE is hereby given that the  first sitting of the Annual Court of  Revision of the Municipality of the  City of Enderby for the year 1911,  will be held   at   the    City   Hall   on  It is a matter for congratulation  that the people of Vancouver have  taken up the matter of compulsory  vaccination, and are going to the  Government to have tho order-in-  council compelling every citizen of the  province to be at once vaccinated,  determined to protest to the limit of  absolute refusal against the law put  into force through the Provincial  Board of Health.  At- a mass meeting held in Orange  Hall, Vancouver, on Saturday night,  the following curt resolution was  passed:  "Resolved, that this meeting heartily condemns the order-in-council providing for compulsory vaccination,  and demands the immediate repeal of  same." - -'  Mr. F. C. Wade, K. C, one of the  principal speakers of the evening,  made reference to what he termed  "the aberrations of our most wonderful health department,''  "What is the reason for this, ladies  and gentlemen ?"   asked the speaker.  "Where is the smallpox against  which we' are to guard ? I am in-  iormed by the health officer that  there are in Vancouver four cases of  smallpox, not one of which originated  in the city. The reason given for the  order-in-council is that there is smallpox at Mission and Abbotsford. But  1 am informed to-day by the police  department that the quarantine from  Dewdney to Silverdale has been  raised. Apparently' the only reason  for this sudden and extraordinary  order is the panic on thc part of a  number of incompetent and incapable  officials in charge of the health department. I am not here to stand  against vaccination, but I do say  that there is no occasion for vaccination, and no occasion for the panic  into which the members of the health  department have thrown themselves."  The chances for taking smallpox,  according to Ontario statistics, are  about one in 1,GOO���������������������������if you are in a  locality where smallpox exists. The  chances of dying from smallpox are,  according to thc same statistics,  about one in 160,000. The chauccs  of dying from cowpox (vaccination)  are, according to statistics quite as  reliable, fully as great, and there is  no longer any doubt in the minds'of  physicians generally that vaccination  leaves in its train syphilis, lockjaw,  cancer, erysipelas, and many other  diseases.  Dr. Close in the "Medical Advance"  some years ago described vaccination  as an obnoxious and pernicious medical theory, a medical measure that  destroys health and causes disease,  physical degeneration and death, and  he thought it time to rebel when the  minions of the law, tyrannically violating constitutional rights of the  person, attempted to enforce it."  The British   Medical  Journal says:  "In addition to the fact that people  are often ill after   vaccination, i{, is  I important/ to   remember that people  S die after the   operation, if not from  [the disease   itself  (cowpox)  at least  from its sequela, notably erysipelas."  Proi. Wm. Osier, that eminent Canadian-American physician and author,  was educated v'at Trinity University,  Toronto, and at thc medical faculty  of' McGill University, Montreal. He  also studied at University College,  London, Eng., and at Berlin and  Vienna. And he is an authority recognized by the medical fraternity the  world over. In Osier's Modern Medicine, Vol. 2, p. 324, we find this: .  "1���������������������������-Tetanus is not a frequent complication of vaccination. 2���������������������������The  cases occur in small numbers after  the use of various viruses. 3��������������������������� An  overwhelming proportion. occurred  after.the use of a particular virus.  4���������������������������Tetanus bacilli may be present in  virus iu small numbers, derived from  manure and hay.  - "Wilson (1902) first found tetanus  bacilli in vaccine virus, and' Carini,  out of four hundred examinations of  fifty different specimens of lymph,  found'tetanus bacilli five times. He  concludes that they BELONG TO  THE NORMAL FLORA OF LYMPH,  but occur rarely    and in small num  bers, because in a series of specimen;-  of the same lymph he found thi.  germs in only one tube.  "Reading the   accounts of separate  cases,  and   still   more those of cpi  demies of complications, gives one an  unfavorable view of vaccination."  This is a frank admission on the  part of thc best authority in the  world that vaccination may and doc:-,  cause tetanus or lockjaw. In view  'of this, forgetting for thc moment  the many other complications whici:  everyone knows are a result of vaccination, does it not seem cruel and  cowardly that whenever such unavoidable accidents occur, the doctor  doing the vaccinating Avill seek t.j  place the responsibility of thc accident upon the parents, who, they will  say, were careless in attending the  victim.  There are physicians in every locality who are opposed to vaccination,  and will perform the inoculation only  under protest., Elbert Hubbard tells  of one of these physicians met on a  recent trip.  "A short time ago," says he in i\  late number of his magazine, "I  spent a week in St. Louis. Durinr  the week there were three deaths cf  children from tetanus (lock-jaw), all  the direct result of vaccination. The  Board of Health had been very busy,  and all the children that could not.  show a scar were vaccinated, this  without the consent of the parents o*  thechild. For each vaccination the  city paid the kind doctors delegated  to the work, the sum of 50 cents.  That is to say, these physicians  operated upon healthy children, introduced a poison into their systems,  thus giving them a disease, in order  to prevent them from having one���������������������������all  for half a dollar per child. The three  children that died netted the doctors  a dollar and a half.  "Scores    of    other   children's-were  made seriously   ill. "How many were"  poisoned for life no one knows!

But personally he  said'he   thought   the   whole system.  was founded on   superstition; and on  a very barren assumption. ���������������������������  Said the"  physician: 'Many people who are vaccinated never have smallpox.   A few  who  are    vaccinated  have smallpox.  To assume that   those who arc vaccinated would have smallpox if they  ENDERBY PRESS  Published every  Thursday at  Ender.by.

I  must admit that the logic of vaccination is no reason at all, and could  only appeal to prejudiced, ignorant  and unthinking people. I wish we  were rid of the whole thing, but I am  not strong enough to stem the tide.  Doctors get paid for vaccination, the  books and colleges uphold it, and  this thing will go on until the people  revolt; which I hope they will do  soon.' "  This same writer tells of another  instance coming under his personal  sight. A most excellent doctor told  him that he was called upon to vaccinate a beautiful little girl, three  ' years old. She was the picture of  happiness and health, and as he  rolled up the sleeve of her little dress  preparatory to scarifying her arm,  she looked at him trustingly out of  her bright blue eyes and laughed.  The doctor turned away and a  something seemed to clutch at his  .heart.  "Hurry up, doctor, I can't keep her  quiet much longer," said the mother  nervously.  "I'm not going to vaccinate that  child, unless���������������������������unless you demand that  I shall," said the doctor.  "Well, vaccinate her���������������������������that is why I  brought her here. "'  ��������������������������� The doctor performed the operation  The child cried a little as children  do, but soon forgot her hurt; and  laughed out of her bright blue eyes  as her mother led her away.  In six days the doctor was sent for.  He found the little girl with a violent .fever, her, arm swollen to an  enormous size,' and in great pain. A  week later the fever subsided, but the  whole arm was covered with sores,  and her eyes were so affected that  she had to be kept in a dark room.-  JTwo years have'passed; the 'child's'  body is covered with an'eruption that  cbmes;.and . goes. r. She has scarcely  grown an. inch .in , height-, and. her  weight is not as. much as on the fateful morning when she looked innocently, into the face of the doctor and  laughed in' glee." : J '   ."  "I often drive around-the block.to  keep from running the risk of seeing  her. - She is^ the last person I vaccinated, and the last person I wilL  ever vaccinate," said the doctor.  "What    will   become   of the' little  girl,"  I asked.       "Will she outgrow  the poison in her system ?"'  "I know what the end will be,"  said the doctor. "She will die of  tuberculosis when she is sixteen���������������������������provided, of course, that she lives that  long."  "The idea of inoculating the human  body with " a poison in anticipation  that otherwise the person may contract a disease, was first introduced  into England from India in the latter  part of the Eighteenth Century.  "In the year 1796, Dr. Jenner heard  a milkmaid say, "I can never have  smallpox, because I have already  caught it from a cow."  > "Upon investigation Dr������������������ Jenner  found that cows occasionally had a  disease of the udder marked by an  eruption that very closely resembled  in appearance the smallpox pustule.  If the hands of .the- milkers were  chapped they occasionally caught the  disease from the cow, and their hands  and arms would break out in sores.  It was a legend held as a fact by the  peasantry that such persons were immune from smallpox, having already  had the disease, it being believed that  you could have smallpox "only once."  "And so Dr. Jenher's 'discovery'  came from the chance remark of an  unthinking, unscientific country maid.  "Inoculation by cowpox virus as an  immunity for smallpox, causes a disease called vaccinea. That vaccinea  is a reduced or mild form of smallpox is a barren assumption���������������������������the germ  of smallpox, unlike the germ of typhoid, never having been discovered.  Tlie immunity is an assumption,  absolutely unproved. Those who  have been vaccinated occasionally  have smallpox, and then we say the  vaccination "never-took" or "it had  run out," or."it wasn't as severe as  it would have-been-had he never been  vaccinated." These terms, and other  similar - terms are without meaning  and without sense. -_ - -    '���������������������������=:/'-',_  --*--' -  Thc Jenner fallacy owes.its vogue  to being endorsed- 'by the i English"  government, thus being given a legal  standing. And it is. a significant  fact that England was the first nation to abolish the compulsory vaccination law.' ' That was thirteen  years ago, and, in spite of the dreadful things predicted for the people of  England as a result of discontinuing  the fool fetish, smallpox has almost  entirely   disappeared   from the land.  There is no preventative of disease so powerful as the happy, healthy resiliency of Nature. Life is a  fight against disease, and Nature has  provided that life shall win if given  about half a chance. Health is natural; disease is abnormal. To introduce disease into a healthy body under the plea that you are fortifying  the individual against disease, is thc  very acme of scientific stupidity.  There is nothing resists disease  equal to health���������������������������keep it, prize it,  work-for it, pray for it ! And when  a doctor, or anybody else talks to  you about ''inoculating the beautiful*  body of your child with dead matter  from a diseased cow, in the interest  of health, tell him to go to  ~  on to a stretcher, the scab of each  sore carefully lifted, and all pus  squeezed out of the wound into a vessel for the purpose. This pus is  afterwards strained free of all extraneous matter, such as hair, etc.,  and is then sealed up for future use  as the finished product.  'Qrom the foregoing it will be seen  that pure  that   'pure    calf   vaccine   lymph'  is  nothing but pus; yet this is injected  into the arms of babies and children.

The excavations for  mines and for railways occasionally  meet with them. An adventure of this  kind recently reported from Ttaly is  thus described by a writer in La Xa-  ture  (Paris)-  "On a new railroad line to connect  Koine and Naples a funnel to be four  aud a half miles long is being driven  under Mount Orso, near .Sonniho. On  May II last, at -ibout a mile and a half  from the northern entrance (on the Ionian side) a bla������������������t in the advance gallery suddenly opened a passage into a  huge natural nit. Several of The workmen narrowly escaped falling into it.  It, is a deep rift, somewhat inclined and  apparently descending to sea-level. It  is about -00 feet wide and the gallery  meets it somewhat on one side. Pis  sures abound in the rocks of Mount Orso  and other similar encounters are to be  feared.  "This is not the first case-of the  kind; the Speedwell mine in Derbyshire,  I'ugland, intersect ed in the same way  a rift 300 feet deep; under the-Larzac  Mountain the railroad from Tourenine  to Vigau crosses wide fissures; two tunnels between Brive and Cahors have  broken into caves, and other examples  are not rare. "What is rather surprising  is that this does not happen oftencr in  fissured regions aiid among limestone rocks tarvcrscd by subterranean  streams.  "The. size of the Vomit Orso fissure  will, probably interfere considerably  wilh the work: if will be necessary ,to  go around thc cavity in order to work  on the other side. There is talk of filling up the hole itself,-but it would bo  imprudent to do jt before exploring its  depths to find out whether there may  not bo direct or indirect connection  with some underground watercourse. If  such a, ilow exists, its erosive action  would sooner or later undermine the  filling, which might cave in 'And cause  a serious accident. Iu any case, this  event shows once more the necessity of  a thorough exploration of the ground  where possible, before building a tunnel'; the Simplon and the Lotschberg  have already proved this. This precaution will be particularly necessary in  the crossing of tho Jura range, if (he  plan of constructing a long tunnel there  is to bo carried out."  straight  owncd-by the Ideal Stock Farm, East  Aurora, .N.Y., willgo down in turf history as a most remarkable one.

One of the  most important of the new regulations  is ono hy which the four chief officials  at the iloiiHohold, namely, the Lord  Chamberlain, thc Master of tho House  hold, the Master of the Llorso, and  the Lord Steward, will meet at regular  periods to confer on the working of  their respective departments, and to  settle questions which aro constantly  ���������������������������irisJJig between  them.  Under thc old regime, when tho work  tf, ������������������ay  the Master of the Horse's de  partment brought that oflicial into conflict with the Lord Chamborlain "s 'department, etiquette forbade a meeting  of the two officials, and the question at  issue between them was referred to the  King's secretary for his Majesty's in-  atriiMtions on the mutter.  Wh"������������������ Lord Parquhar was reorganizing the late King's'Household, he pro-  posod such a scheme as has now been  adopted, but, for various reasons,' it  was nevor carried out. The "new arrangement will net only relievo the  King's private secretaries of a great  deal of unnecessary work, but will much  expedite the work of tho departments  tsencerned.  The number of Equerries and Lords-  in-Waiting in residence is to be reduced, but the number of non-rosideut  Hquorries who arc put- on the Hst i"  rotation every fortnight for attendance  at tho Palace-will be increased. This  regulation wilMnako for economy without putting any extra work on the officials affected by it.  Thc,presence of thc Mistress of the  RoboVal Court will be required far more  constantly than was the case iu the last  f������������������w years of King Edward's reign,  when Queer! Alexandra only required  the presence of., her Mistress of ��������������������������� the  Kobe* on occasions of great state ceremony; and many of thc duties attaching  te hor oilice we're, as a matter of fact,  performed by Miss Knollys.  " Ji is the wish of both King George  a.id Q,ueen Mary that the Mistress of  the Sobes should'rcsunie chief control of  -her Majesty's Household, and, in conscience,' the Duchess of Devonshire will  b������������������ a great deal at -Court.

Queen Mary intends to- revert to the  ���������������������������ild fjufctom of giving a dowry of ������������������1,000  be a,. Maid of .Honor when she marries,  but against this, her pay will bo reduced  by a hundred a year. Queen Alexandra  raistid the 'pay of her Maids of Honor  hy a" hundred' a year, but stopped the  dowry money.  Til the new reign the "Maids" will  receive three hundred a year each instead of four.  QiHieii Alexandra had only four Maids  of "Honor, whilst Queen Victoria had  fen. Queeii Mary will probably appoint  six, but not more than two will be in  attendance at thc same time. Her Majesty will present each of her Maids  "with a gold and pearl locket which the  Maid must always wear whon she is in  attendance.

All the Eoyal War  rants to tradespeople expire automatically at the death of the Sovereign, and  ;here is no obligation whatever ou the  part of the new Sovereign to renew  -hem.  In the late reign little attention was  .riven to seeing that thc Royal Warrants  wore renewed, and a large number ot  tradespeople continued to describe them  selveB as warrant holders who nevor  ipplied for permission to do so.  The registered lists bf the Royal Warrant holders will now be carefully investigated and will be personally examined by the King. There is no question  that there arc many bogus Royal Warrant holders, and it is a matter of much  importance, both to the public and to  the genuine warrant holders, that the  matter should be carefully investigated.  In the matter, by the way, of the  disposal of orders King Georgo will not  be by any means so liberal as was hit  father.  Thc Royal Victorian Order and the  Imperial Service Order were so freely  distributed in the late reign that they  ceased to be very highlj valued, and iu  more than one instance tho Victorian  Order was refused.  Under  the  new  regime,  modiocrities  need not expect to be decorated because  thoy chance to be intimate, or have in  ilueuce with a friend of the Sovereign.  t  Lord Chamberlain'h department. Ono of  fcha most important of these deals with  tho granting to societies and institutions thc right to- use tho prefix "Royal." All institutions which are properly entitled to use the prefix nro registered in tho books at the Lord Cham-  hcrlain'B office, but. a great many use  it who are not entitled to do so, for tho  simpU  reason  that it acts as a great   holp-in .obtaining subscript ion-)._ Except  in one or Uvo glaring instances of misappropriation of tho prefix, no trouble was  taken in th<> late reign to investigate  the rights of any Bociety or institution  to style itself "Royal," and numbers  of Rociotios availed themselves of this  state of affairs to do so without proper  authority, but under the new regulations  they will no longer be able to do so;  already one institution has been peremptorily ordered to cease designating  itself "Royal," and, as a result, several  others, not entitled to use the prefix,  havo voluntarily dropped it.  In one ease, that recently came to  light, it was ascertained that a society  which existed practically for pushing  tho sale of a certain American patent  medicine described itself as "Royal"  . on its ������������������ircnlars, though it carefully refrained from doing so more openly. In  future, no society not registered as  "Royal" will be'allowed to designate  itself as such, and the privilege to use  the prefix will not be at all so readily  granted as heretofore, as his Majesty  has been long of opinion that it is one  which has been always too easily secured. Of course, the right to designate  itself "Royal'' will not be withdrawn  from any institution which is properly  entitled to do so.  In the same way, the claims of Royal  Warrant holders will be investigated  with equal care. There aro a number  of people claiming to be Royal Warrant holders who are not, though they or  A CHANGE OF MIND  (By Mevi] G. Henshaw, in Outing Magazine)  THERE are certain freshwater officers  who gain their titles solely by a  close asosciation with the water  front: You can see them upon any clear  day, scattered like ungainly mile posts  along the river banks, smoking, fishing,  telling eternally of incidents that have  never occurred.. None of them have  been to sea, few of them own even so  much as a rowboat, yet they aro captains e\ory one.  All of{them are old, all of them are  idle. Each of,them has his own particular spot overlooking the water for, even  in the easy ^acquirement of their titles,  a certain amount of propriety must be  obscrvod. Of" these Captain Wilkins'  was a type.  ~ in appearance he was one of those  small, contradictory-men-of less than  five feet in height, about whom-every-  thing else gives.one an impression of  size. His laugh .was loud arid rumbling,  his voice was like "the bellow of a bull,  his moustaches were" huge and red, curling up fiercely at the ends. His opinions  wero voiced with the solemn impressivo-  ness of a judge, lie moved with ,the  slow, majestic progress of a great body.  Aud the worjst of it was that ho took  himsolf seriously. An Harahan, the corner saloon man, once said, "If he had  had any sense of humor, he would have  laughed himself to death."  Theoretically, Captain ���������������������������- Wilkins was  supposed to be in' search ot a job at the  docks, an occupation which he had followed unsuccessfully for the greater  part of-his life. Practically, ho employed his days in attending to tho sov-  ernl duties of his oflice. In the meantime Mrs. Wilkins took in washing.  Now as no description of a man can  be complete without a hint at either his  likes or dislikes, I will finish mine of  Captain Wilkins by recounting tho two  things in which he took a chief and particular pride.  The first, his grandson, Littlo Bill,  needs no comment from my pen.' Children are children the world over, and  -poor-Mn<"e������������������d=is=the-=hcart=that=-docs=nGt=  turn toward them. Of Captain Wilkins's affection for the child it will be  enough to say that he hourly paid him  the very highest compliment in his  power,  "There's a boy for you," ho would  proudly observe. "Some day he'll grow  up to bo a man like his grandaddy."  Tho second, his reputation as n swimmer, Captain Wilkes had built up and  ltppt going through a series of interminable and highly colored anecdotes. " All  of thorn minted to incidents of his youth  which had brought on n series of complaints that effectually prevented his  ontering the water,  One morning in tho early summer.  Captain Wilkins sat in his accustomed  spot upon thc river bank. The day  was perfect, his position was comfort  able, a pipe was between his teeth, and  v  fishing pole was stuck  into thc soft  "Yes, sir, jumped off the dock just as  she'd got good an" away, an' swum  after her I'd hate to say how main  niiles. Captain Joe didn't ease up 01  put about, till I was nearly a 11 in. Said  he wanted to see just how long 1 could  hold on. Jle says to this day he reckons  1. could have swum clear to Baltimore ii  L'd tried, but of course that's goiu' too  far. I ain't a fish. I'm just a ordinary human who ean naturally swim.  "But what I'm going to toll you  happened, as I've said, on the lowei  Jeems. Wo was just comiu' home from  a trip one uight an' I was figurin' on  r.he captin's putt-in' in on tho way up  thc river an' lcttiu' mo go ashore to see  my gal. 1. don't moan the old lady. Thit  was another one named Sue. Likowise,  as Sue's old man was somo cross an' ir  ritable. I'd brought 'long a five-gallon  jug of hard cider from Norfolk, to sortei  soothe him.  "Sue lived in a little town on the  right bank an' we was hugging close to  the left bank on account of the current,  so, when the lights begun to show waj  on ahead, I asked Captain Joe to crosfc  over.  "'You're crazy,' says ho. 'Do you  reckon I'm goin' five miles out of m)  may for any such fool bizuess as seein-'  a gal?'  "'Lend me the skig, then, an' I'll  row across,' says L  " 'No, you won't,' says he. 'Not  havin' no wings, I'm figurin' to use hci  myself when ������������������ go ashore'  "So there I was,,all fixed and ready'  to see Sue, with a five-gallon jug for the  old man. An' there was the town slip-  pin'down-on us all the tunc, an' gettin'  ready to pass us with five miles of room  to spare. Now if you 'd been me, what  do you reckon you'd done?"  "I reckon I'd just put off that visit  till some other time," answered Larry,  iis he "had answered the same question  a dozen times before.  Captain Wilkins considered the reply  as carefully as though it had been entirely new to him.  "Yes," said he after a while, "1  reckon that's just what you an' most  young fellers would have done. - But  that warn't my way. I just naturally  tied my shoes round my neck an' tool-  that jug in one hand an' swum ashore.  "Still holdin' the jug?" asked Larry  with  well-feigned  surprise.  "Why, of course," said Captain Wilkins. "You ought to be acquainted with  me well enough to know that I wouldn't  go an' feed all that good-licker to the  f'shes.  "But the'joke of the thing is that I  didn't get to see Sue after all. "No, sir.  After I'd got dried out in Captain Riddle's kitchen, my clothes was.so shrunk  they just about covered half of me. An'  that half warn't the biggest- half by a  long sight. Fact is I gave 'em to Captain Riddle for his'littlc boy. I likewise  swapped the-jtig for. an old suit of oil  skins to get back to the Jenny in. They  sure did joke'me .about it'. Some folks  say that's where thc old-savin',about  'Keep your clothes on' comes.from."  The'-Captain paused suddenly to attend to his fishing. After he had landed  and unhooked a very diminutive perch,  he threw back his line and,sat staring  out upon thc water in search of,another  anecdote. As -ho did so, a single shell  sped noiselessly up0from below and shot  swiftly past in the still water beneath  him. So smoothly, so expertly, did the  rcd-jerseyed figure at the oars propel it  that he left scarce a ripple to mark his  progress. -,    -  Confronted with one of his pet annoyances, Captain Wilkins glarod after  the oarsman in impotent hatred. ' N  - "Blame them boat-club sports," he  growled.. "They're ��������������������������� they're" snipes,  that's, what they are. Why can't they  stay homo an' mind their own biznis  'stead of rompin' up an' down the river  in a boat like a butcher knife, scarin'  thc fish off poor folks' hooks? Why  can't they woar some clothes 'stead of  puttin' qii a couple of holes with a little "red worsted wrapped round 'cm to  keep 'em from fallin' apiirt? If 1 was  ro^go^oTi tTl Hre^tim t7f-"P?riJb=aTr ostetlf-"  eyes and turned away. As he did so  there cam������������������ a flash of brown, a streak ot  red,  and   a  sudden,   resounding  splash  It is unfortunate that the Captain har  his eyes closed, for he would have be  held the spectacle of a man diving fron  a rapidly moving shell���������������������������a feat which  despite his experiences, might havo ap  pealed to him. As it was, the youii};  ���������������������������nan from the boat club was just drag  ','ing Little Bill from his third descent,  when  he whirled  hopefully around.  "Go to the pier," spluttered tin  young man as he turned over on hit  back and uoatcd down with the curreir  ���������������������������the child's head held well above tin  water.  After thc young man hnd landed a'  the pier, he assisted tho Captain in roll  ing and pounding Little Bill to lifi  igain. Wnen it became apparent tha  his efforts were successful, he smilec"  with pleasure, waving aside Captaii  Wilkins's protestations of gratitude.  "Never mind about' that," said he  ".Just get this child home, and give hin  something strong and warm to drink  LIo'U come round all right, never fear.'  "An' how'11 yon get home your  self?" asked the Captain, with a glai'ici  at his companion's scunty attire.  "Oh, some of the fellows -will set  my boat as it drifts past," said he  "They'll be looking for me in a minute  or two."   ������������������  So Captain Wilkins hurried honn  with his unconscious burden, but be  fore he got there he did a curious thing  Stopping at a lonely and deserted pier  ho descended its ladder until the watci  closed  for. an  instant above  his  head  Some few mornings later,, Captaii  Wilkins sat beside Larry in his acens  tomed spot upon the river bank. Ai-  usual he was indulging., in an ancc  dote, but, this time, it related to ai  event that had occurred a bare five days  before.  "So, as soon as I heard him-yell, ]  jumped to my feet, and took off from  the bank there," the Captain was say  ing, "right there where it's sortei  stomped down. Of-course there warn't  much swimmin-' to it for a man like nic  ���������������������������only a stroke or two. ft was the div  in' that counted.  "I reckon Bill must.have struck hi?  head on somcthin' goin'down cause he  never come up once. Seems to me like  I walked round ou thc bottom fOT pret  ly near ten minutes before I found  him.   We come up just about thore."1'  As^he paused to point out the exaci  spot, a shell came speeding up the river,  and uashed past below him.  Angry at the interruption and anxiom  to gain favor in the eyes of his hero.  Larry shook a fist at the'departing oars-  man.      "   . ,   . '  "Blame them boat" club snipes," he  began violently. "/Why can't" they���������������������������''  But Captain Wilkins" stopped him with  a roar.   "        ^      . _/*���������������������������    _.     ;  "Shut your mouth," ho bellowed. "If  you can't "speak welllof your.; betters,  you necdn't-speak of 'em'-at all."  -.Thoroughly amazed and'disconcerted.  Larry stared at the Captain in " unite  surprise. . .   .

In  itddition to these comforts he had the  luxury of a listener in the person of  Larry Brown. ���������������������������  Larry was Captain Wilkins's most ardent admirer. He was a young, man of  a simple and trusting disposition, and  the fact that he had obtained a job at  the docks in no wise affected his belief  in the capabilities of his hero. In fact.  Larry looked upon the job as only a  species of disagreeable initiation into  the more honorable duties of the future.  If he saw enough of Captain Wilkins.  he told himself, he could learn to emu  late him. In time he might even become  like him. Then he. would get married  and become a captain himself, marriage,  as I have intimated, being a necessary  ad'unct to the proper enjoyment of the  office.  As usual, Larry was listening with  rapt attention to one of the Captain's  anecdotes.  " 'Twns done on the lower Jeems,"  that worthy was saying, "down whore  she's inoro'n five miles wide. I was on  tho schooner Jenny Wade���������������������������old.man Joe  Wade bein' captin an' me bein' mate.  You've heard me tell of her before, 1  Plio'p the boat I chased out of  I Hampton Roads.  ������������������������������������������������������Some one of these days I'll swim  out an' turn one of 'em over. If he  don't got ashore, it won't bo any fault  of mine."  At this moment tho "ono o'clock  whistles began to- blow, Larry rose reluctantly to his feet.  "Well, I reckon I'll get back to  work." said be "You goin' home?"  "Not till tho fish quit bitin'," replied-Captain Wilkins. 1' LLtheyJioop.on  like this, I reckon I'll stay all day."  At five minutes past ono, Littlo Bill  appeared with a dinner pail. After  Captain Wilkins had petted him and'  had praised him upon'tho success of his  journey, lie foil upon tho food with all  of the voracity of a hungry fifiherman.  Tn thc meantime, Littlo Bill looked  iifter the linos.  The accident occurred at oiro fifteen.  Whether the child had leaned over too  far or lost his footing in attending to a  bite, tho Captain never knew. He  heard the scream and. despite his pompous movements, arrived at the edge of  the bank coincident with the splash.  "Nov/ had any of Captain Wilkins's  .friends been present, if is probable that  I hey would have felt but little alarm.  A plunge, a stroke or two by the  doughty swimmer, and all would have  been well again. .,  It is my painful duty, howovor, to  relate that the Captain did none of  these things. He simply stood upon the  bank and stared in white-faced agony  at thc rapidly sinking curls for, alas, he  could not swim! Be it said to his credit  that, had there been a chanco of saving  tho child, he. would unquestionably have  plunged in. But the bank was high and  inaccessible, and there was no chance  of landing save at a pier a good fifty  yards below.  When Little Bill went down for the  second time, Captain Wilkins closed his  nulc!'.ly  atons co-idlis,  tha throat aud luntis.  cures col'U,   benla  ���������������������������   ���������������������������   ���������������������������       iid cunts.
