'i didn't take 'em long to talk me  :,jt0 it���������������������������it generally is easy to break  down v: man's will when it ain M. braced  up by his n'ncural desires; so alter. Id  balked as long as seemed polite, I ���������������������������settled into the collar again' an' trotted  along just, in  tlio same old gait.  _  It was just as T thought. Barbie was  plumb wild to hear all those eollcgo  stories, an' lhc queer words that Uios  uied to talk with. Sho asked moiabout  a thousand questions that 1. wasn't, sure  on the answers; but I made out to interest hor, nn* Jabez' face used to  beam when he'd hear ber laugh ri������������������K  out.  back,  an'  besides,  ������������������ had  give  hor all  tho pointers the' was.  One mornin' about ten days, after  I'd come back, I heard' em discussin'  purty heatedly out back of the corral;  an' 1. just sauntered over to hearken to  it. It wasn't a case of eavesdropping  'cause Avhen them two had any com-  ments to make they didn't care a blue  bean what thc.prcvalin' style in opinions happoued to be, they nailed their  own personal jedgments on tho Avail  an' then stuck around handy to back  'em up. T av.13 particular anxious to  knoAv what they was crossin' words  over, 'cause! couldn't got it out o'  my head but what'my comin' back an'  findin' 'em peaceable betokened something,  Jabez Avas staudhv' with his feet  wide apart, his hands on his hips, his  hat tilted over one ear, his chin stick-  in "out with thc lips pursed up, an' his  eyes had a dogged look in 'om. Line  by line an' feature by featruc, she  shadowed him to tho last itom; an'  -r.eithcr-=imc^of=^cm=saw���������������������������a=t-\vinlclo-���������������������������������������������  comical ness in it, noither.  "Do you know who you're talkin'  to!" he yells just as Y arrived. "Cm  your father!" '  "What of it?" she snaps back.  "It's too late to remedy that��������������������������������������������� ;just  got to make the best of ii. But do  you know avIio you're talkin' to? I'm  the fulurc OAvner of tho Diamond Dot,  an' I" ain't a-layin' no plans to havo  the lala-lra-dinks from the oiyijj^od  parts' "o"' "this country "conic" out "an'  round up my langwidge, same us they  gather Injun specimens. You may be  my fathor, but you can just bet your  saddle that before 1. reach thc ond o'  my trail, a stranger Avon't be able lo  guess ir from our talk."  Now the old man was mighty savin'  with his cuss-words, nn' ho put out a  purty tol'ablc fair grade'o' grammar;  but the girl had an eye in her head  and an ear to listen with, an' she had  been for a long time takin' notice o'  the side Avinks o' the Kasterncrs. Some  l-lasterncrs put on their manners the  same as their complexions, au' the  opcm air is apt to put a crack in 'em.  Thc ol' man looked at her a good  long while, but she novcr blinked a  winker; an' he finally turned a way an'  said in n soft-like voice, "I know child,  I ain't been ablo to fill tho part full  measure���������������������������but it ain't 'cause Y haven't  tried. I reckon you'll have to go,  honey; but it'll suro be lonesome Avhile  you're aAvay; an' when you do come  back you'll never be my Utile kid any  more." His voice kept gettin' sadder  an' saddor until Labout Bnuffled myself  whon he continued: "I'll rub up my  talk all I can while you're away, an'  then if you bring out any friends noxt  summer "you can toll 'em that I'm the  foreman an' that you lot mo eat in the  house while iyour father is takiu' a trip  to Europe."  Tho ol' man would havo playod that  part about as natural as a bull buffalo,  but he fooled himself into bcHovin' it,  an' his voice was purty shaky at the  end. Barbie's eys fillod up with tears,  an' when hc stopped au' began to tot  ter  feebly  toward the hoiiao,-she ran  up an' throw hor arms about hia neck,  an' said, "Dad, I just hate you���������������������������you  don't play  fair,    You start  tho  game  under oue sot o' rules an' then whon  you got thc worst of it you just simply  crawfish.    Whon  wo wore sayin'  mean  things out in  tho opon, 1. just  natchly  put it all  over you; an'  now you flop  ovor on your back an' work that 'coals  o' fire' stunt, an' I just hato you. You  know  in   your  heart  I'd   be  proud   of  you in any company ou earth, but the'  's a   heap  o'   difforcuco  betwoou  you  an' me.    You have beon successful, an'  strangois  will  respect you  for it;  but  it's  got   to   be  a  show-down   with   mo  every time.    If I. don't loarn the new  gaits, so a'stranger will think I'm city-  broko, some fresh tourist is apt to got  the idee that I'm as uncivilized as my  manners, an' it AAron't do to tramp on  my   toes���������������������������not    overly    often.       But   I  don't have to leave you.    I'll just turn  in  an' -do   tho  job  right  hero  on  the  ranch, an* accordin' to the very latest  models.    You get me a lot o' books an'  all  tho 'magazines an' fashion   papers,  an' hanged  if  1 don't turn out a job  'at Ml fool thc host of -'om.    You're a  mean old Daddy, you are, for a fact;  but avo make too dandy a duet for me  to go away an' leave you to grind out  a solo all alouo.   But���������������������������but I sure Avant-  ed to go."  Well, .Jabez grinned all over; but ������������������  saw .that he wasn't through with it so  easy. Barbie wasn't tho ono to throw  her rope before sho syas all braced for  the jerk, an' tho' wouldn't be any  kinks in her logic, noither. She had  thrown a purty stout string of arguments, an' T was full prepared when  they told me that ho Avas to havo his  way about it, an' she was to go to college that very fall.  She did -go iu less 'u a mouth to a  prep-school clear down East. A prep-  school is a sort of calf college, you  know; an' sho had to train thero a solid  year before they had the nerve to turn  her-loose on a full-grown university.  But sho had a head on her, Barbio had,  an' Avhen she got squared away, sho  made 'em all got down an' scratch.  They do say that alio put more life an'  vim in that institution than anybody  Avhathad ever giArc it a' work-out before.  01' Cast Steel Avent down tA\rice tho  first winter, an' never let her know 'at,  he was in the neighborhood, for foar it  Avould mako her think ' 'at he was  pinin' for her. - He just-went down  there'au' bought some store clothes an'  prowled around Avaitin' for thechanco  to see her at a distance���������������������������never even  lined out tho professors to .see if: they  were doin' their duty, nor mixed iu tho  fame thc slightest bit. _ - Talk- about  oin' game! I reckon that puts a  shadow on anything over that man had  fo face.  She used to come back every-summer,  bringin' a lot of chums an' all kinds  o' pets with' her. She was just daffy,  over any kind of a wild animal from  an Injun papooso to a white mouse; an'  when she'd go. back in the fall, Jabez  had hia hands full Avith parrots an'  alligators an' butterfly coons an' soch  ���������������������������to say nothin' of a lot of potted  flowers what was mighty notionable in  their tastes.   - - -  E'was so busy teudiu' to this branch  o' tho outfit that about all tho ridin'  ������������������ did was for oxeroiso���������������������������yos, an' for  company, 'cause it alius seomed as if  she was along wheu I'd be out on the  range. Then, again, ������������������ alius felt a kind  of dmwin', myself, to the silent people,  who think an-' wish an' feol, just the  same as we do. but aren't able to handle our langwidge. ������������������ got so J. could  =p u r fc-���������������������������n i gh=tol l=w h a tra ir^a u i m al=h a d~o u~  his mind, just from tondin' to her  specimeuts.  She had one .specimenf which avus a  possoni, an' the blame thing bit mc  eight timefi one winter, mo tryin-' to  give it baths���������������������������an' then she wrote back  iiomo that the doggone critter didu't  nood 'om nohow. She purt' nigh got  expended for takin' a rattlosnake back  to the university an' keopin' it hid  in her room; an'_ after I__d.had.a.deuco  of a time catohin' 'om, thoy made her  send a bob-cat an' a mountain lion to  some kind of a (.anion���������������������������wouldn't lot  her keep 'om at all, The professors  alius was a sore trial to her, but ouce  she bogan a thing she alius fought it  through', so she put up Avith 'em the  best way she could.  Sho used to toll us that boin' housed  up like to 'a' drovo hor crazy at lirsl,  an' they was so tarnation fussy that  she felt liko a hobbled pony in a stampede. They wouldn't oven lot hor picket her ponios out in what they call tho  campus, wliich she said was just drip-  pin' fat with rich grass, an' nary a  hoof to graze it. Why, thoy even had  fool notions about havin' certain hours  about goin' to bed, an' e\ren when you  had to put your lights out  One night she got fidgety an' nervous  with the loncsomoness of it, an' she  got up about one o'clock an' fired her  revolvers out of the Avindow���������������������������just for  sport, you know, like a feller soino-  times Avill when he's���������������������������woll, Avhen his  soul gets kind o' itchy like���������������������������an' it  purt' nigh startod a riot. - She said 'at  avo wouldn't never boliovo how different the people was down there. I reckon a univorsity must be run a good  bit like a pouiteutiary. But as I said;  she wasn't no quitter, an' I reckon,  takin' it all in all, she give 'om back  about as good aa they sent.  Course Ave could see a lot o' change  in hor when she'd first come back, but  it seemed to slide off as the tan came  on, nn' by tho time she left iu the fall  again she'd be purty much the same  obi Barbie. She Avent full five years,  countin'   the   prep-school,  an'  I  don't  suppose they was much in tho way o'  learnin' they didn't filter through her;  but it didn't spoil her, an' the very  moment her knees clamped on a pony  again you could see that her blood was  as red as ever, even if hor face was  roses an' cream. My heart alius beat  out of time when I knew she was head-  in' back; but the very minute she.gavo  my hand the old-time grip I know sho  was still tho old-time girl, an' when  she'd turn to tho chumaan' say, "Girls,  this is Happy," Avhy, I was big brother  to the lot, an' before thoy wont back  I'd teach 'em ridin' till thoy, could  giggle on boss-back without fallin' off.  Thoy all oAvned up that she was tho  takin'est girl at the university, and  while her pals was a mighty attractive  lot, they didn't havo to use any arguments to convicc mo it was tho truth.  Sho alius left mo so much to do whon  sho was aAvay that f nover felt liko  leaviu' through the Avinter; Avhile durin' vacation time I wouldn't have gono  without bein' drove; but toAvard the  middle of her fourth year, me an' Bill  AndroAvs had another little run  in.  Wo Avas havin''a terrible streak of  weather, an' Bill wanted to move a  herd ovor to the southwest corner of thc  ranch Avhore the' was somo oxtra good  bunch grass. It Avas a wiso movo all  right, an' I said so; but when he Avant-  ed mo to help trail 'em, I vetoed it.  ������������������ avus Avatchin' up some experiments  with silkworms an''I didu't want to  leave 'em. We'wore short-handed an'  Jabcz 'lowed 'at I'd bettor go. Well,  we argued back an' forth until he  finally said that he could take full care  o' the silkworms, an' intimated that  my Avork Avith 'om Avasn't much but'  pastime, anyway.  (To be Continned)  THE  EARTHQUAKE  EXPLORERS  (By John Milne, F.R.S.)  "Why ou earth did you study earthquakes?" is a question which during  the last thirty years has beon put to,  mo more than any other.        ���������������������������'  Tho simplest answer is that for  tAventy year of my life earthquakes  were forced upon my attontion. In  187fi, together Avith many others of  various nationalities, I was invited to  assist Japan iu her endeavor to. learn  something about tho material side of  Wostcrn civilization. I had just come  home after two years' bucking about  in a fore-and-aft schooner on the coast  of Newfoundland and " Labrador, ' but  boing young and vigorous I accepted  the imitation, packed up and started  off via Siberia, Central Asia, and some  1,200 milas of China to take up my  new appointment. The trip took eleven  months. On one section, of thirty-ono  days tliere-were-no roads, no houses,.no  bread, no vegetables, no.washiug, no undressing, plenty of snow, and from -10  to 50 degreosof frost. The saifrc journey is��������������������������� now performed'in" a morocco-  bound, gilt-edged Oraudc, Vitesse in  fourteen days. * '.',-__  I met Afith my first earth-tremble' in  Irkutsk,'the capital of Eastern Siberia.  It upset a fow bottles and _ provided  a "subject for conversation', but "it..was  hardly a hors d'oeuvro for the twenty  years' feast before me iii Japan.' When  I'arri\'od in that country I had a glorious shake-up the very first night. Tho  name oi! the mansion the Japanese  GoA'crnment had provided for niy reception was " Yama-Gouchi," or the  M'oHth of thc Mountain. Yama-Gouchi  creaked and groaned and .rolled, about,  pictures sec-sawed ou thc walls, while  the rings attached to a mosquito curtain  jingled a high treble. I field on tightly, ..wondering what Avould happen next.  There is nothing like an earthquake tori 11 you up A\Tith expectations. Of course,  after a few minutes it ended. -The  next mom ing 1 wondered whother [ had  really ever lived or had only just risen  from the dead. :  Very, quickly, like all thc other pro  fessorial consignments imported by Japan, I learned that in Japan, particularly at certain seasons, earthquakes  came in groups, you could haAro them  Tit^lJif^k?f^t^luTOli7^fea~'^uppo'r, or iTf  the middle of the night. An idea that  earthquakes should be studied floated  in the air. Et Avas crystallized at tho  end -of February, JSSO. On thc 22nd  of that mouth an earthquake occurred  which made people more thoughtful  than usual. Yokohama practically lost  all its chimneys, many houses had boon  unroofed, streets Avorc filled with debris,  while slopes from which trcos anil vegetation had___slidden_ downwards .looked,  as if they had been whitewashed. The  interest in earthquakes was al a white  hont, and ������������������ foil the psychological moment to establish an earthquake socioty  had cone at last. A meeting Avas convened aud a largo hall Avas packed.  Thc American consul, General Van Duron, took the chair. Ln thirty minutes  a set of rules drafted to suit the occasion was road and adopted, subscriptions  were collected at tho door, and lhe Sois-  mological Society of.' Japan was established, ft lived for fifteen years, and  in thc twenty volumes wliich it published you find the foundations of almost everything that has boon dono  since.  The successor to this society is the  Earthquake Investigation Committee of  Tokio, which receives from tho Japan-  ose government an annual subsidy of  at least $10,000. Russia spends a somewhat similar gum, while earthquake investigation in Italy has for years past  received departmental consideration,  in fact, most_of thc civilized states of  thc Avorld, as will be testified by the  arrival of foreign dolegatos to thc meeting of the International Seisinological  Association, to be hold in Manchester  July 18th to 22nd, consider the study  of earthquakes of groat importance.  Among the delegates to this gathering  are such men as Professor Boid, famous  in connection Avith the San Francisco  earthquake; Dr. Omori, from Japan;  and Prince Galitzin, of Euasia, Mr.  Napier Donnison comes from Victoria,  B.C., and Sir George Darwin is one of  the English delgates,  because they are of such rare^ occurrence in his own country, entirely forgetting the fact that the whole of British capital is not invested in these Is-  lauds and every year somehow or other  he has to pay for earthquake effects.  The 'Shareholders in British insurance  companies were recently called upon to  pay $60,000,000 for an earthquake Avhich  ruined San Francisco and $10,000,000  more for destruction in Jamaica. Although the British Government do not  give any direct assistance to seismology  in this country, thoy contribute $800  per year to the International S'eismo-  lo^ical Association. NotAvithstanding  this, British Avorkers havo contributed  very much tOAvards the extonsion of our  IcnoAvledgo of the planot on which wo  live. The British Association, which  has issued forty-sovou annual reports  about earthquakes, at tho pvosont time  enjoys the .co-operation of about sixty  stations fairly spaced over continents  and oceanic islands. Because submarine earthquakes noAv and again interrupt cables and tho records of those  .disturbances not only indicate tho posi- ,  lion whoro an interruption took place  but- enable us to say thoy wore duo  to natural causes, cable companies havo  generously assisted in tho establishment  of noAv stations. If a colony is suddenly isolated from the remainder of the  world by the failure of its cables, it "'  is of groat importance for them to  know whether this AA*as duo to natural  causos or to an operation, of Avar. Jfc  frequently happons that earthquake records havo furnished definite informa- *  tion respecting destruction in- distant  places and corrected and extended telegraphic information about the same.      ' _  Qur  friends  in  Germany  have  been  quick to see the advantages to bo gained by the study of earthquakes and appealed   to' all   civilized   states   in   the  world'to  join   them  in   the  formation  of an International Association of Seismology.    The   permanent" headquarters  of   this  association. are  in   Strassburg,  and   are   supported   by   an   income  of '  about  $9,000  per year,  subscribed   by   -  about    tAventy-three    different-   states.  Thoy   have   a  station   in' Iceland  aad    -  hope   to   ostablish   tAvo   moro,   one   in  Greenland and tho other in Asia Minor.  Each year Strassburg publishes at-least ,-.  two. large .catalogues   on  earthquakes...  Recently at this central bureau a moving platform has been erected, on which-    ;  it is proposed  to  tost earthquake instruments. ��������������������������� Next year a  map will  be"  drawn   which  will  show  Strassburg as  the  centre   of" the' Avorld.

' ���������������������������  AFTER-HARVEST CULTIVATION  Owing  to   thc   scarcity" of 'inoisture^  during  the  growing  season     in  many  parts  of   Canada,   particularly  Ontario  !"  and the eastern  provincos, farm crops  will not be as heavy as they should be.  True,  there   is  abundance  of   rainfall  -'  during the year to ensure big crops, but  how  are  wc    to    conserve    it?     *By  thorough "after-harvest cultivation, continued at short intervals.until autumn,   -  thon followed by doep autumn cultiva-.  tion.

It enables soils to hold  moistuuro by increasing the- depth   of  the soil in which plants can grow, that  is, by increasing the depth  of the re:  sorvoir,   or   making   a   larger     sponge,  which   certainly   will   hold   more  moisture than a stone.  It is not advisable to bring to tho  surface poor sub-soil, but it is advisable to loosen up the sub-soil.to a good  deptirby moan's of "a~su"b-sbiIpT6w"." Tlio" "  sub-soil ploAV does not turn a furrow; it  is drawn by an extra team which follows-in the same furroAV after the ordinary ploAv. This may seom much extra Avork. but Avhen a systematic rotation of crops is followed, thc sub-soiling has only to bo dono once in foiiT  years, Avhich means little labor to four  crops, which certainly Avill be heavier  on account of sub-soiling.  WHY THE WAVES ARE BIG  Explanation is made of thc groat size  of sea waves in high southern "latitudes  by the fact that south of J;ho Cape of  Good Hope and Cape Horn there is  neither windward nor leeward shore, and  the preA-ailing wind in all longitudes is  Avesterly. Thus Avhen a Avost wind  springs up it finds a long westerly  swoll, the effect of a previous wind,  still running. The newborn wind increases the steepness of this SAvell and  so forms majostic storm waves, which  sometimes attain.a length of 1,200 feet  from crest to crest. The avorago height  attained by sea waves in feet is about  half the velocity of the Avind in miles  an h������������������ur.  WHERE VIPERS ARE NATIVES  Africa is the homo of tbe typical  vipers.

This summer, oven the most inquisitive Avoman finds it almobt impossible to keep posted on the  internal arrangements of all the houses in her OAvn neighborhood. Whole blocks seem to spring up in a week or two  and the evenings are shortening so that there is a danger  of. the innermost secrets of many dAvellings escaping the  most watchful eve.  Being one oi these private inspectors myself, with the  purpose of gathering7 ideas and learning what to do and  what to avoid when I build my own house, I have been struck  with the same omission in every house,examined. Some of  the plans are very clumsy and aAvkward, the arrangement  of the rooms being the most inconvenient possible i'or the  housekeeper, so inconA'enient that one wonders how the  builders can ever get anyone to occupy such ridiculous places;  but many are very compactly and ingeniously laid out, everv  inch of space is utilized to the best advantage, and always  with a view to the economy of labor in the housework.  This is all very nice and pleasant for the mistress of the  house; she has her convenient kitchen, pan-tries and cupboards,'for her working hours, andrwhen her work iB done  she has her pleasant sitting-room for rest, her dainty dining-  room for meals, and a bright, cheerfukbedroom for sleeping.  But in not one house, of the many I have looked at this Hummer, has any provision been made for'the servant, other than  a miserable little bedroom, often 'only large enough to hold  a small.bed,', and situated always'in the-most dismal corner  of the house, with the garbage,'can for a "view." Not one  builder has considered the- comfort of the- maid-of-all-work,  the one laborer left who has'no regular-hours,, no standing  of any sort, and very little pleasure outside of what she ean  get out of her work. She 'is__alsp the one who ministers  most -to our own comfort���������������������������or the opposite���������������������������and for this  reason, if for no other/it would seem to be good policy to  provide a little comfort and pleasant surroundings for her.  A small sitting-room for the servant would take up, very  little space, and would mean so much to a homeless girl.  This room might open off the kitchen, so that while resting,  sewing or reading she could have an eye on her cooking'as  our grandmothers did in their old fashioned homey kitchens,  which were always the pleasantest rooms in the house.'  S'ervants might not be so hard to get, or keep, if-they  had a spot in the house where they could entertain a friend,  sew or read in comfort. A small room is all that is necessary, having room for a table, a rocking chair and an extra  chair for a caller, a few pictures on the wall, books and  magazines for harmless amuse"ment, and above all, either a  window-box or potted plants for her very ownf Under sueh  ,conditionsr a-girL could keep her self-respect and remain a  human being. . ' >  . -  As she exists in most homes, the servant soon-deteriorates  into a drudge; and-drudgery sours* the"milk-of human kind-  ness-^-in either mistress or maid���������������������������ruins the temper .and  brings ,to 'the surface all( theviciousness any human nature  is capable of. The servant girl is usually given her choice  of- the - kitchen with its- cheerless sarcophagus-like gas stove,  or else her. bedroom furnished '.with -the cast-offs from the  family "bedrooms, each piece-"of furniture screaming, at thc  others���������������������������if she is lucky..enough to have~a room-large enough  for anything but a~bed. This .sort of room is.so'likea prisoner's cell, and the girl's time so much at the disposal of "her  employers^ that she might just about as.well'be in jail. ;__.--  _ "' While.aH'the'Vorld has-moved Von, "and ..even-womankind  is coming into" Her own, .thejrelatibns of mistress"and maid  are still onv_ the same' antiquated If ooti rig/-.

They;-are  bending all their energies towards the attainment of greater  liberty for women, but, in this one-particular, are still doing  their individual beet to keep-one class, of women in bondage.

" One great and ncver'ending cause of  complaint is the late hours at which the -girls come in at  night. T know several women, who live far out in different  suburbs, who bore me to destractibn with long dissertations  on the late hours kept by their serA'ants; every detail of the  going-out and coming-in is given at length, tilL my poor brain  .is-completelv���������������������������mudd 1 od.anfl -all_my^sympafchi_e_uarp-with^tbe_  household pets for any family, and thev should not be confined to the kitchen only.  There is a class o'f mistresses which should be abolished  by law. They are thc ones who, when they condescend to  engage in a little friendly conversation with their "maid,"  entertain her with the relation of the delinquencies of her  predecessor, hor bad cooking, her dishonesty and her impertinence, and what are known as her "followers." Tbe  idea of the mistress may be to discourse on such topics as  she imagines may be suited to the mental calibre of the help-  Icbs listener, but more often it is the desire to "point a moral  and adorn a tale" which animates her. Tt is taking a mean  underhand, advantage of a person who is unable to retaliate,  for, of course, no one who employs a "maid" would for one  moment listen to any tales she might have to tell about her  former mistresses. A servant resents being.,bored, just as  the rest of us do, and a bore is ahvays a great trial even  as a casual visitor, but to be shut up in the house with one,  day afrer day���������������������������it certainly is the limit. I have known charwomen, as well as servants, who left their places because  "the lady" talked so-much "she made my,head ache."  * *    ������������������  NEW-FANGLED SCHOOLS  They taught him how to hemstitch and they taught him  how to sing,  And how to make a basket out of variegated string,  .

In a family where dinner is late and but one serA-ant is  kept, the' girl can rarely get out before eight o'clock.   The  friends  of these girls live, as a rule, in the north end of  thc city or to tbe northwest, two or three miles from their  place of service.    Everyone knows how much timo is wasted  waiting for cars and transferring, to say nothing of the accidental delays'which are ahvays occurring in our car ser-  A'ice; so that at the very least it would take half an hour  to mako the journey from Fort Rouge, say, to Selkirk Avenue.   Half an hour would be quick time, and the journey one  -way-would-bo-much-more likely-to-take from three-quarters  to an hour, thus requiring an hour and a half for the round  trip.   The rule in most familios is that thc servant must bo  in by ton o'clock.   Add the hour and a half for street car  travel to eight o'clock, whon sho goes out, and you leave  her exactly a little half hour for nor evening's entortnin-  mont.   How would you like it yourself?   You spend more  time than that gossiping with a chance acquaintance on tho  stToot corner.  ������������������ - ���������������������������    ������������������  One woman dismissed her servant bocause she came, in  at a quarter past twelve, although she knew tho girl had  been at the theatre, and that the night service on that sur-  burban car line was very intermittent.  I had been at the same theatre that night myself, and  had reached home at 12.10, as the show was very long. This  girl had much further to go "than I had, and could not poB-  sibly have been in earlior without leaving before the end  of the play. This I carefully explained to th* irate mistress,  but she was absolutely solfish and deaf to all reason, and insisted that a servant's duty was to be in at tho hour specified by her mistress, oven though she should have to leave  the theatre at the endsjpf the first act.  This woman is not an isolated case either; there aro hundreds of her, just as unreasonable and pig-headed. She is  alwayB in trouble with her domosticB, and deserves to be.  Servants show their good sense by refusing to stay with her.  A mistress' first.duty is to provide suitable quarters for  her household help, not just a cell for her to sleep in, but  proper room for hor to live in and live humanly. She has  need of fun and recreation, fresh air and rest as much as  any other woman, and should havo it. Having attained all  thoso necessaries, the sen'ant owes her best service to her  employers and a consideration of their -Sashes���������������������������oveH whims  ���������������������������so far as she is able to comply with them.

CARTRIDKEK-ATt^-MAPE���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������  A SMALL PORTABLE ICE MACHINE  The modern tendency is toward large Bcale production.  The spinning wheel may bo seen in our homos as an heirloom, but it is silent and unproductive.     Wo find it cheaper and better to have our industries concentrated in large  factories, which turn out our clothing, our prepared foods,  our  ice   and   what    not    in   bulk.      Nevertheless,    home  "manufactures" have not yot quite passed away, and naturally they  too  havo been   modernized  by  calling to  aid  the various resources which  the development of mechanical and other arts place, at our disposal.      An instance in  point is  the  ice-making machine.      This  depends  for  its  action upon the well-known fact that a liquid in evaporating absorbs  from its  surroundings   a  certain  quantity  of  heat, commonly termed the "latent heat of evaporation,"  thereby   cooling  those   surroundings.      In   order   to   apply  this fact to practical advantage we need a container from  which a suitable liquid, such  as  water, is evaporated, an  air pump wherewith to  reduce the pressure above the liquid, so aB to cause its evaporation at low temperatures,  and finally some absorbent to take up tho vapor, and assist in maintaining a low pressure in the apparatus.    The  rotary pump is connected by a  ruffer suction  pipe to the  "absorber."      This  latter  is  simply   a  glass   vessel   containing   commercial   concentrated   sulphuric    acid,     which  should be free from  hydro-chloric acid.      The purpose of  the sulphuric acid is to take up the  vapor evolved  from  the water placed in the vessel which is being cooled.   , Tbie  A'essel iB connected to the absorber by an enamelware tube  with rubber ends.      A block of ice may thus be formed  direetly  in  a  carafe  of  table-water,  or  a  suitable  Avide-  montked  vessel with  adaptable cover may be substituted  fer tke ������������������amfe, and any  material, such  a.  ice-cream mixture for eaample, can be frozen.  As the hunting season will soon  be  here sportsmen generally are-thinking"  of their hunting outfit.    This makes' H  more opportune-to-call attention-to. the"  repeating rides, repeating shotguns arid  ammunition of all kinds manufactured  by   the   Winchester   Repeating   Arms  Company, the largest manufacturers of  arms and ammunition   in  the world���������������������������  which   are justly  celebrated   for  their  superiority and   reliability.   -Over -two-  milliou-Winchester gnns have" b"een"sbld"  during tho forty odd years they have  been upon the market, and to-day they  are in general uso all over tho world,  flaying established sueh a demand for  their  guns  and  ammunition  the  Winchester   Company   6trive   to   maintain  tbem by exorcising care in the selection of tho materials uBed, and by cm-  ploying modern methods and machinery  in- manufacturing  their product.   "The  Winchester Company employ the leading   experts   in   gun   and   ammunition  making,  and   oxpend  annually  a  large  amount of money in experimental work  and   in   perfecting   new  and   desirable  types   of   guns   and   ammunition.     By-  moans of this experimental  work ^aiid  by an exacting system of tests and inspections   embracing    every   stage    at  manufacture,    from    the    materials   in  their  rough  state to  the finished product,    the    Winchester   Company    are  enabled to keep thoroughly modern ia  every way and up to a high degree of  perfection.    As proof of the superiority of  Winchester cartridges might be  cited the report of the Board of Government   Experts   who,   after   a   thorough  test of various makes, reported official-   "  ly that Winchester rifle cartridges have  been    ho    honored.

The company is also doing away  with the lay-over of 24 hours at  Sicamous, of passengers bound for  Okanagan Valley points arriving at  Sicamous Saturday night or Sunday  morning. This has always been a  .sore trial to the travelling public,  and the effort to bring the Okanagan  Valley service . out of the jerk-water  column into the rank of. through-  line was greeted with pleasure by the  great majority of the business people and the travelling public. The  idea of holding up the traveller at  Sicamous over Sunday because he  had to change cars on his way in to  thc Okanagan, is about as reasonable  as tieing up the through train on the  mainline wherever Sunday overtakes  it.

A DIFFICULT PROBLEM  King Edward Hotel, pr0]S  MURPHY  ietor  Enderby  The city fathers have "recently been  up against a difficult and at the same  time -an unpleasant problem.- Some  time ago it was decided to put a  meter water service into the mills instead ,of the flat rate per month as  heretofore. . This decision was arrived at only after a careful investigation of the system to find if the  city supply could not be imcreased.  It was believed early in the past summer that by increasing the head and  otherwise strengthening the intake at  Brash's creek an increased 'supply of  water would be obtainable. Later,  however, and before the expense of  the proposed work was incurred, it  was decided to have a" water expert  go over the ground. On examination it, was discovered that to attempt to increase the water supply  through the present pipes would be  at the sacrifice of the present system.  It was thereupon decided to curtail  the extravagant use of water,.and the  mills were the first to feel the pressure.  The pipe line from the intake to the  city is only 6 inches, and off of tins  6-inch main the A. R. Rogers Lum'ber  Co.-is served   through a 6-inch-pipe,  plied.     It is somewhat of a hardship  on both mills    to have to resort to.  their pumps, but   there was nothing  else for it.     With one mill    tapping  the six-inch   main   with a 6-inch ser-  r\  vice pipe, and the other with a 5--  inch service pipe, there were r.i.iny  times in the summer season whon the  pressure in the city main was insnfri-  i cient to carry the water t-i many  residences. The crying need is for a"'  larger supply main, and this is a  problem that will have to be n.et at  no distant date.

We believe in this;polled to 'discontinue the use of the  striving for temporal power the  Church, of to-day is doing the very  thing that has driven men from it in  ages past and will drive men from it  in the present day. Without going  into any argument on this score we  would like to call attention to this  one simple fact that while the .ministerial association of old, the Lord's  Day Alliance, or - whatever -it might  have been called, was more intent on  making Sabbath laws and compelling  Sabbath observance than it was in  finding and following thc Christ, the  ;mJuiste.riaL=iassociationJ=o������������������=olcL_-cr_uci^  fied the Christ in the nair.'e of law for  His having done a labor of love on  the man-made Sabbath. The present  case is not a parallel, we know, but  are we not drifting into the same  bigoted, narrow spirit of intolerance  and law worship ? Are we not drifting into the same position assumed  by the Church in the days of the In-  {j nisi lion ?'" Is "not the Church neglecting its duty to the spritual man  in a mad effort to suppress and control man temporally ?  Wc must confess to having very little sympathy for thc man or institution that presumes to question the  good intentions in other men and institutions not of the same blood or  creed or calling. We believe the men  in control of the C. P. R. are just as  honest and good at heart as the men  in control of the Lord's Day Alliance.  Wc believe the Sunday service over  the Okanagan line will be a great  convenience to the travelling public.  Wc believe it is as necessary as the  through train on the mainline, and  wc believe there is as much call for  action on thc part of the Lord's Day  Alliance in one instance as in the  other. Wc arc pleased that the C.  P.

This fact is of great benefit to. the  farmer,' as it is in the colder period  of thc year that he is able to find,  time for building and making the  many articles around the farm to  which   concrete ,so  readily   adapts  It-  '   self.  With a few  simple precautions  lt has been found  that . concrete can  be used, not .only  In freezing weather, but when' the  thermometer has  been actually below zero.  If" the " concrete  freezes before lt  starts to ."jet," It  will not be injured, but- if the  freezing - takes  place^ ' after     the  "setting"- ' action'  has _  started   - up,  the -   concr.ete>~ hv  likely; to. be   damaged ������������������������������������������������������ -when ���������������������������'- {It - -  thaws, ' owing  the ..'expansion  the   m e 1 ting.' water  forcing .  the  - jiar-  ticlcs   -apart,   and ' ' ',.  making the concrete crumbly. On  the other band, .-..if -''the concrete has a ohance . to become  thoroughly "tat" before .freezing, no harm wlllbe done. To give  It this chance you must first of all  prepare the materials as described  below, and secondly, you must pro-,  tect the concrete .after lt has been  placed In the "forms."  HEATING WATER.  A simple and easily-made vessel  for heating water ia shown in the accompanying drawing. (See Fig. 1.).  A coil is made of one-inch pipe with  the' ends fastened in the barrel and  made water-tight. .A small fire built  under the coll will heat the water  rapidly and will keep it in circulation, thus keeping all " the water  heated.  For this purpose it is wise to use  a length of malleable iron gas-pipe,  because lt is easily bent into the required coil. This is done by taking  a log or fence-post about the size of  the coil and bending the pipe around  it.     This   method   prevents  the   pipe  pipes,   and   will   soon   thaw  out  and  become heated.   ,  In very cold weather, the cement  may. be heated by laying the bag-s on  top of the sand, but' this is not absolutely necessary, as the cement itself  must be kept dry until used, whether  the weather be hot or cold.  TEMPERATURE REQUIRED./  Materials should not be heated to  too high a temperature. A good way  to judge the proper amount of heat  is to make them Just hot enough to  be comfortable to touch. Care should  be taken not to use any frozen lumps  of sand.

In empires the raw material out of  which things immaterial are made is  energy���������������������������not eneigy measured in terms  of restlessness and epileptic oiuotoiu-  ..lisin, hut energy moasurod in terms  of self-discipline, of doggod perservor-  niice, and good work. Wo were a dogged nation in the eighteenth century.  Are we so now?-  Empires come and go. They pass  through the phases of genesis, rise, extension, nnd (Iodine.  Of Assyrian and Babylon, those great  inland empires of tho Mid-East, wc  know comparatively little, but thoy  possess one small point of interest for  ourselves. We may be gradually approaching them again; tho great pendulum of geo-politics may be swaying  eastwards again, whilo the way of some  king of lhe east is being prepared.  Three thousand years ago, thc valleys  of the Tigris and Euphrates stood thick  with* corn supporting teeming cities  and a great--empire, and now for centuries this enormous tract of country  has lain fallow. But the railway���������������������������that  ������������������ great herald of modern civilization���������������������������  is gradually creeping up to Bagdad.  The lands that onco supported a vast  population may do so again, and tho  Mid-East may he a great controlling  '  factor in world politics a century hence.  Eome was not built in a day nor did  she vanish in a night; sho took some  SOO years to hammer herself into a  - nation and this preliminary forging  made her tough enough to hammer  every other nation into an empire.  And  the  Eoman   Empire  was   uot  a  merely military empire.   It was a naval  empire, as  well, and  was built ou  an   equilibration   between    naval   and  military power wliich  wo do; not seem  to possess.    The  empires  of  the  Mediterranean aro interesting also for an-  -   other   reason.      "What  happened  on  a  small scale round the olive lined shores  of the Mediterranean may be repeating  itself  on   a   larger  mileage   round  the  Atlantic   and   Pacific   shores.

Will our fate bo theirs? The answer  lies buried in certain pivotal periods  dotted along tho history of the next  two centuries, and thc noxt twenty  years is the first of these periods. Tho  ��������������������������� arona of history is now being cleared  and ' the immortals are,, taking their  "seatB.  England has no monopoly of empire  nor' lias she always boeu imperial. In  fact, up to the time of Elizabeth., she  . had made a distinct mess of imperialism  in-Scotland and Ireland. She had no  oceanic commerce in thoso day*, and a  seaman was adventurous if ho had passed Cape Finistorre. England, self-contained and insular, lay brooding at that  time with great undeveloped capacities  within her'heart.

Tho Mediterranean was no longer the  one and only sea, and tho tide of sea  powor and empire began io ebb from  the Venetian quays.

The sixteenth century was that of  -Spain and Portugal; the scvoiitBont.li  belonged to the Dutch. In lhc eighteenth century Prance and Em-land  fought a .croud Hundred Years' War  to decide who.-"! the nineteenth century  should be. Under the Tudors we fought  with Spain. Under Cromwell and thc  Stuarts wc beat the Dutch out of thc  field. Under the Georges we boat the  French, and in Victorian times, we lay  on our oars and annexed great slices  of the world.  Uut, during this long century of practically unchallenged sea power, not only  ine internal constitution of the kingdom, but thc face of thc world has  changed. And with this change the  handwriting appears onco more on the  wall. Tckel and Upharsin niay not  vet he written, but Mene, Mono has  been, or is being scribed. Other nations are growing up and asking us to  ���������������������������rive an account of our stewardship.  The foundation of the German Empire,  the approach to unification of a Greater  Germany, the growth of the United  States, "the modernization of Japan,  have profoundly altertfd the equilibration of world ' power. Mene. Mene���������������������������-  we are being weighed in thc balance.  The next fow decades will docide  whether or not. wo shall be found wanting.  One thing, however, is certain. The  British Empire, as it is in the twonlicth  centurv. is a profoundly different thing  from the British  Empire  of the eighteenth century in the making.  Our Empire, as existent, seems to be  ono after its own kind whoso future  must be guided rather by those "'who  possess an inthnato knowledge of tho  present than by those who immerse  themselves in the doings of tho past.  Compare thc eighteenth and the twentieth century. Tho spirit of government has changed, and so have thc  people governed. The arts and crafts  of war have been revolutionized. Tho  Empire is no longer making, but mado.  Tho faco of Europe has changed, and  so has the face of the world. And is  there not a subtle chango in our national character? We legislate largely but  are forgetting how to rule, and wo do  not hesitate to undermine tho great pillars of state ana imperial authority  without which all the * legislation in  Lho world is mero parchment and waste  paper. Wero tho Empire guided by  that superior wisdom which plans in  miles and not in metres, which schemes  three decades ahead, and bases its  scheming on principles hammered out  and tested in practice, the study of history would be a usoful guide. But  democracies must be content to be  guided by a lower kind of wisdom, that  day-to-day wisdom which meets daily  needs by daily expedients, which ties  up its shoes with - string and, taking  little thought of the morrow, is satisfied if it obtains day by day its daily  broad. This may be all very well for  saints, but it is not good for empires.  .It is generally believed that the pub-  lie do not want to hear about Imperial  defence at all, but to think thoy hear  about it when they are in reality reading a lurid description of a fight be-  Lwecn colossal battleships yet unbuilt,  breathing out death and gasoline vapor  indiscriminately, and carrying guns at  least three inches larger in calibre than  any yet manufactured. I think better  of the public than that. Lot us imagine  the situation before us in diagram  form. You will see au empire (never  mind it's mileage, for strategy ia measured iu time, not in distance), which  divides itsolf geographically into the  great sections���������������������������the western and eastern.  In the western section lie Great Britain, Canada, thc .West Indies, and the  Gape. The eastern section is a great  triangle with India at the apex, resting  on tho Capo and Australia as a base.  A great strategic chain runs from east  to west, tho links "of which are Gibraltar, Malta," Aden, Colombo, and  Singapore. Hong Kong forms a loose  link, giving us an entrance into Chinese  seas. ���������������������������  , Now the defence equation of this  empire contains several factors, somo  variable, others "vague and undeterminable, but let us try and get at the  things which are and which stand out  clearly and prominently for even the  most shortsighted Little-Englander.  Pour great  items of defensive work  confront us, and three items of offence.  . Under the heading of defence there  is:���������������������������  (1) A vast trade and the sea communications of thc Empire to dofend���������������������������  a naval task.  (2) Tho land frontiers of Canada and  India to consider���������������������������uo light things  these���������������������������a task for soldier?!  (3) The seaboards of Greater Britain  ���������������������������Canada, Australia, aud tho Cape to  protect from inv'asionary attack���������������������������a  work -partly naval and partly military.  (4) The great strategic chain to garrison and defend.  The offensive work of war again  falls under three principal heads. First,  a main attack on the enemy in his own  strongholds. Secondly, if this is too  ���������������������������har4=a=-isufc=-fco=6fa&k-f=an=ecconti*-i(i=-attack^  on his possessions overseas. Thirdly,  an attack on his sea-borne trade. The  latter, iu the case of Germany, constitutes 00 per cent, of the whole, and she  is, therefore, making frantic efforts  to persuade us to declare all private  property at sea   immune  from  capture.  It must, never be forgotten that merely defensive measures will never force  an enemy to submit to .vour will; they  can only force him In keep out of your  own" front "garden."  All these various items of work, nf-  l'ensi\e ;ind defensive, must not only  be enrolully studied and provided for,  but must, be worked up into one great  synthetical whole, and the burden  equally and justly distributed among  all member.- of ihe Empire  The io'iiernl organization of these  branches of work seems to crystallize  naturally along two lines���������������������������one local or  national', the other Imperial. Each  part of the Empire must see that its  door is strong enough to stand any  hammering that may fall on it before  tho imperial police force can arrive,  and just in the same way each part of  the Empire must be prepared to earmark a quota of its forces for Imperial  use. and must subscribe to the doctrine  that, being many, we are one body,  and evcryono members one of anothor.  Local forces must be organized and do-  signed for service at home. Imperial  forces for service abroad. If an attack  is made on" any portion of the Empire,  the local forces, must take the first  shock, while the Imperial force is  hurrying to the point of strain to supplement  its  efforts.  Now, this is all very plain, but the  question arises���������������������������Is thc Empire inspired  and actuated by the right spirit, or  will the different members, whon asked  to contribute to Imperial defence, bo-  gin nil with one accord to make excuse?  This one must spend its money on a  canal to carry its wheat, that one on  railways, another on something else.  Thc beginnings of a clear conception  of Imeprial defence lie in an attitude  of mind and spirit, not in motor-driven  battleships. Each great member of the  Empire must resolutely make up it6  mind that it is a part of the empire,  and intonds to do its share of work.  If this is to bo done efficiently, we  must differentiate clearly between  things: Imperial and things national  just as the "German Empire does, and,  according to the ability of each, each  must give cheorfully.  Tho first step towards this fis the  constitution of ano Imperial staff to  decide on all naval aud military problems which may arise. At preesnt we  havo no clear idea of Imperial stratogy  and our conception of tho subject seems  to be chioily remarkable for its immense purposolessnesa. We send our  greatest soldier reund the Empire to  collect ideas, but iustead of giving him  authority to curry his ideas into practice, we permit him to play golf. Suroly  while ho plays golf, we aro playing tho  fool. Our inquiries and conferences  spell lack of will power, and hesitancy  to act. We strike a single note hero  and there, and evolve a territorial army.  Meanwhile, across thc North Sea, a  cloud is gathering, a nation of gnomes  is working, hammering ceaselessly, ro-  lentlessly, unwoariedly.' It has worked  i'or one decade, will work for another.  What will  the third bring?  THE   ENGLISH   WAY  (By H. "Hamilton Pyfe)  Whenever I hear pooplo saying that  England's day it over .1. ask them  whether they travel much abroad. I  find, as a rule, that thoy have never  been outsido their own couutry. If they  had, they would revise their opinion.  They would discover that the influence  of England is stronger in Europe than  it has over boon before. In these days,  when distance has been abolished, the  fashions of one country are the fashions of all. Nations aro no longer ignorant of one another's habits. We have  ceased to believe-that tho .Frenchman  lives on frogs. The Preach have abandoned the idea that our favorite oath  i.s "Rosbif!" and that wo make a practice of selling our wives. Nations  have ceased to regard their own ways  as the only right, ways, and all other  peoples' ways as ridiculous. Tf they  see something they like they adopt it.  Very striking is the number" of things  English "which have been ad op tod by  other nations during the last fow years.  Everywhere our language is being  learned as part of the necessary equipment of educated men and women. Although Gorman tends to become the  business tongue of Europe, directly thc  business man gets outside Europe-he  finds English indispensable. It is  spoken ovor the whole American continent, throughout Australia, in South  and-Central Africa, in India, and the  Far East. In Germany and thc North  of "Europe English is a regular school  subject, not taught, "in a" dead." perfunctory, Olleudorflian manner, but so as  to enable those who learn it both to  rend and speak, ["have often met Germans and Swedes and Russians and  Austrians who talk English fluently and  correctly without ever having' beon in  England. "Further, they fall very soon  into English ways; and, if they" live in  England, are often anxious to bo taken  for natives." A clever German woman  married to an EngJishraau has in one  of her novels hit olf very neatly this  foible of hor countrypcoplc domiciled  among us..   ' ���������������������������. " >���������������������������  English games have made rapid conquest' everywhere. Football is played  all over Europe. So is lawn tennis.  Golf is-gaining'ground, in France especially. Bridge, wliich started its  career in England, has become a universal card-game. Foreign calvary ofticors  long to spend a winter in England for  hunting; nnd wheu they have had this  delightful experience thoy talk of it  with enthusiasm all -their livos. England, again, sots more social fashions  than any other country. Five o'clock  tea has' beeii widely adopted; so has  our custom of dressing for dinner. Gov-  ^natis=eHpe������������������a!!-y=!irc-bocoming=punctiLL-  ons on this point, and no Frenchman  aspiring to be cons-'ulored a "clubman"  would appear after eight, o'clock in any  costume but u "smoking," which means  a dinner-jacket, what Americans call  :i "Tuxedo." Tho type of I'oroigner  who used to loaf about hotel gardens  all day and wear the same suit of  clothes (probably black, with a large  (lowing tie) ironi breakfast till bod-  lime has disappeared. His place has  been taken"byini'athletic;active young  man who h eager to take exercise, who  wears tlannels or knickerbockers, and  who at evening feels tho need of a  change into something rather more formal   and   "correct."  It, is this widespread adoption of oiiv  habits, cairying wilh if, as a natural  consequence imitation of our manner  of dress, Lhat accounts for the surprising frequency on tlie Continent of the  English type" of man. If our -women's  fashions sire sei by I'.-iris or Vienna, it  i.-- we. who now dictate thc style of  inon's dress almo.il all over the world.  And it is not, ouly the style of English  dross which is copied, but also tho appearance generally of what we call our  "public-school man." Not many years  ngo an Englishman could bo picked out  at once among n crowd of young Frenchmen or Germans or .Italians. Nowadays, at first glance, they all look very  much alike. Thoy not only reproduce  our clean-shaven cheeks and chins, our  neatly cropped heads of hair, our broad-'  shouldered-carriage, our well-cut but  exceedingly "quiet" and even sombre  clothes. They admire us so much that  they adopt, so far as Nature will allow  them, the public-school manner as woll.  They aim at being reserved, brief of  speech, unemotional.'They.' would rather  miss their dinner than their -.morning  tub. To be regarded as "good sportsmen" when thev piny games is one of  their highest ambitions.  A. Little Englander, who declares that  England's day as a world-power is over  (the wish being parent to the thought),  would very likely consider me contemptible for being proud of this prevalence  of the "English type.:" Pride will continue to be my feeling all the same.  Not merely a vainglorious satisfaction  that it is the English type which prevails and not" sbirie-other, but a genuine  gladness that we have been able to offer  the";world an example which is worth  following. I do=uot suggest that the  "English type" is perfect. We have  much to learn from the. French in tho  way of cultuvo, from the Germans-iu  the Held of exact study, and so on. But  1 do bolievo that, taken all round, the  English type is the host for the conditions of the world today. It is a conviction of this truth which accounts  for tho English type's victory abroad.  Several Germans of good position,  husbands and wives, wero talking education with one or two English people,  hotel acquaintances. Throo German  couples said thoy meant to send their  sons to English public schools. This  astonished lhe Britons, who, from having Lho superiority of German education continually preached at thorn, had  at last, accepted it as a fact. The Germans explained their reasons. "Our  schools," they said,-"stuff boys with  learning which thoy soon forget; overstrain them, lcavo them- uo freedom,  tench them to rely upon authority and  tho time tabic. Wc want our sons to  learn to be men, to rely upon thorn-  selves, to be ablo to act in emergencies  upon their own judgment.'" We want  character-training rather than miud-  stuffing. That we can got in England.  Thorefore our sons shall go there."  Those German parents saw it would  be a groat-mistake to suppose that the  English type is differentiated simply by  appearances. That fresh, clean, alert  bearing would have little valuo if it  were merely an outside polish. But it  is far moro than that. No amount of  polishing, indeed, could produce it from  outside. Tt must, come from within. It  is an outward, visible sign of tho inward cliaractcr���������������������������a character which :it  homo seldom reveals itself in action,  but which comes out ut once when difficulties havo to be faced, whether on a  farm in Rhodesia or in an Indian district; on the Canadian prairio or the  sand of tho Sudan. This old European  world with its softness aud .luxury, its  over-cultivated - taste and effeminate  will, its "shrinking from any conditions  ���������������������������which call for endurance and decision  ���������������������������in this world thc English typo seems'  out of place. But in the new lands  whore the Future lies for all of us (tho  Germans recognize that as fully as wc  do) it^is this type which is wanted,  which is even indispensable. Tho type  which asks nothing better than to peg  away steadily .at some difficult task.  Which suffices for itself ovon whon it  scarcely sees a .white man for months  at a lime. Which can keep its head  both in prosperity and when things go  ill. ,, Which by patience" and courage  wins new countries over to civilization,  but never talks about-it, never "ovon  seems to think, abontit, just docs" it be--  cause it is all in thc day's work.  - So - long as England .can continue  to produce this type, .her day will, not  pass, her influence will not.decline. If  by some miracle her- politicians could  be persuaded so to school; the masses  ���������������������������first in class-room and" playground,  later in drill-yard, and barrack-square,  ���������������������������as to .bring them nearer to tho spirit  of the-public school,--then England  would be irrisistiblc.

AN ANCIENT PRESCRIPTION  "A lecturer once told of au old Egyptian'king who lived some several thousand years before tho Christian era.

The pre-'  scription itself is written on a small  piece of limestone about three inches  square. It is carefully smoothed for  tho purposes of ils use, forming what  is cnlletl "an ostraeonr "The "writing"  was done, with a brush, -black ink or  paint being used. It is still quite"  plain, attesting its victory ovor time.  Thc inscription is in the old cursive  hieratic writing. Some years ago it  was noticod by Max Muller, who translated the inscription, though rather un--  satisfactorily. Its exact origin has,  never been determined^ as- it was  brought to this country from Egypt  along with a number- of other specimens, no record having been made of  the source from which it was obtained.  The ingredients of this prescription are  mainly precious stone, and these were  to be ground up and used for fumigation. The idea that it ia a _curo for  hysteria comes from an authority on  ancient Egyption modicincs. It seems  that remedies of this kind wore often  resorted to in cases of hysterical manifestations���������������������������malachite for the poor (it  was quite common), something a little  better for those of more means, but-iu  the ease of the rich the remedy required, must be expensive, Tt appears that  tho neurotic' affections of tne wealthy  did not yield lightly k> treatment, and,  in fact, surrendered only when tfic most  costly stones were used���������������������������from which it,  would seem that the ancients worn, after all, quite modern,  'I  a  K  'J  yZi  TO BE OS NOT TO BE  (By Harold Susman)  "You wish to wed my daughter." said  The  father of fair.Flo.

Contractors & Builders  Meeting of Church People Held to  Register Kick Against Sunday Train  ��������������������������� Last Sunday evening at the con-j should be tbe objection raised to the  elusion of the regular services in the inauguration of the Sunday train. It  Presbyterian and Methodist churches,; was solely put on to accommodate  between 40 and 50 of the members of the travelling public, an'd at thc re-  the congregations gathered in the ] peated request of businessmen of the  Methodist church to <consider the:Valley, as well as by the individual  matter of Sunday train service. Rev. | members of the Vernon Board of  Mr. Hall took the chair and called .Trade. He'had recommended it to  upon Rev.  Mr.    Campbell to express the management of the road, because  his .views to the meeting.  he believed the requirements of travel  Mr.  Campbell said he had -lived in. demanded it.     It would go into effect  the Province for a period of 20 years,  this month,  and   would be continued  ancl had seen in someQcamps the store  keepers and the hotel bars doing  business on Sunday the same as on  any other day in the week. He was  glad that such conditions did not  now exist. He was in favor of keeping the Sabbath quiet and especially  in' the Okanagan Valley, where there  was no demand for any commercializ  until it became evident that there is  no domand for such a service.  Mr. Campbell objected to the tone  of the letter. He did not like its  contents. The whole-*matter, be said  was the fault of the Provincial Government. There was not a moral  question -brought before them that  1 they did  . not    evade or endeavor to  bring the guilty party to trial. As  for the train service on Sunday, he  was not convinced of the necessity of  such a service, not' was he prepared  [to say there was not some reason for  it. There might be many reasons  advanced for such a service.  Mr. Jaquest spoke strongly against  the Sunday service and in favor of  the Lord's Day Alliance. He took  occasion to condemn the criticism appearing in the local press from time  to (time of the Alliance and its work  He felt such criticism sorely, ancl was  of the opinion that wliile it was continued the influence of -the Alliance  would be to a large extent'lost locally, and the work carried on with  difficulty.  Mr. Banton moved that the local  Lord's Day Alliance be asked to take  steps to enforce the Lord's Day Act  against the C. P.. P.- Motion seconded by Mr. Jaquest, and carried.  ing iof. the day.

He ridiculed the idea of the Sunday train  being an. accommodation to the public. It might' now and then carry  someone away from Sicamous who  did not know how to travel and had  landed there on a Saturday evening.  The innovation^, would also compel  the train crew to work seven days a  week," which was a violation of the*  Sabbath' observance law." In view of  the difficulty 'heretofore experienced  in the Okanagan-to~in-di.ee the C.P.R.  to give the Valley the service it required, he did not think now that the  company was inaugurating, the Sunday-service for the accommodation of  majority had been wiped out. In  these days- Canadians could very  readily change big majorities' into  minorities. He eulogized the work  of the Lord's Day Aliance, and hoped  to see them compel the enforcement  of the Sunday laws.  A spell of quiet followed Mr. Campbell's remarks, and Mr. Hall asked  for a show of hands on the question  of a Sunday train. . Those who voted  on the question were opposed to the  train service.  ���������������������������- Mr. Banton objected to the" reference made ^by Mr. Campbell to the  action of the Government. In the  matter of local - option,' he said, the  Government'had. submitted the question toa^plebescite, with 50 per cent  of the vote necessary.to~carry. The  .question failed to carry. For this-the  church people were to blame, ancl'not  We are in receipt of the report of  the Provincial Archivist for the six  months ending December 31st, 1910.

Something over 5,000 - horses have  either died or been disabled from the  effects of the heat so far this enmrner  in New York City and very near a'liko  number in Chicago and in consequence"  there i.s an almost unprecedented demand for all classes of horses, especially  the draft type and delivery ehunksi. At  this season with tho exeessivo heat  horse owners cannot be too careful in  using preventive measures to protect  their animals from heat prostration.  Unquestionably, tho Joes of thousands  of these horsos eould have been prevented by proper treatment.  - Tho gray pacing horse, Barl Jr., by  The Earl, which won the champion  sweepstftkos at the Kalamazoo Grand  Circuit meeting, has developed into ono  of the whirlwind side wheelers and a  consistent race horse. 31c was intro-  ^ueed-toHheHighfc^harnessHuoree^world5  some three or four years ago, at Peoria,  by a farmer boy from southern Illinois.  lie unexpectedly, T might say, unintentionally, won his first, race in fast  time at that meeting, much to the fis-  tonishmont of tho wise boys who didn't  have a lino on him. The colt was given  his first lessons on an irregular half  mile track markod off in a plowed field.  Uc is now one of tho pacing stars of the  Grand Circuit, All of which goes to  prove- that "winners may bo "developed  anywhere.  Thc little mare had ear-nod herself a  year of rost after her all strenuous  campaign and not until lato of thc present spring did she and her quiet man-  nored owner, MV D. S'hutt, again appear  upon the bcodc. The rendezvous of tho  yonr for' tho Grand Circuit entourage  was at Tndinnnpoli? and it was there  that Shutt and Ponipa Maid joined tho  clans and commonced their preparations  for the season's campaign, All went  well until one day in late June when  McKenzie, of Winnipeg, came down  from the northwest country to inspect  his stable of trotters and pacers which  Havers Jamos had brought ovor from a  winter's preparation in California to  acclimate at Tndianapolis prior to thoir  Grand Circuit debut, Penisa Maid's  daintinesfi, her wonderful bursts of  spocd. her apparent class, took tho oye  of thc Canadian sportsman and Shutt  woa forthwith offered $25,000 for his  great little trotter. Jt. was witb groat  reluctance that tlie Iowa man parted  with Penisa Maid, but $25,000 was a  fortune. Thus Penisa Maid, the plobo-  ian, became the property of Mrs, 11. J.

Penisa  Maid was dead.  Ueniy Holt i- Co., of New York, havo  published a book by Oskar Pfungst on  "Clever Hans," the trained equine sensation of Germany. For some years  much to the wondermcut of spectators  he has secminglly been able to solve correctly probloms in multiplication and  division, giving the answers by striking  with one hoof on the ground; to select,  from among a number of colored cloths,  any given color named to him, and to  perform other intellectual feats of so  startling a character as to give rise to  a widespread, belief that hc actually  possesses the power of thinking as human  beings  think.  On investigation Mr. Pfungst discovered that the horse could not answer  any question- correctly unless thc answer was known to the questioner, and  that he could not answer unless he  could seo the one putting the question  to him.  The suspicion formed in Mr.  Pfungst's mind that possibly the key  to the mystery lay in unconscious movements���������������������������slight alterations of pose or  facial expression���������������������������which the horse perceived and ^ybich he intrepreted as a  signal to stop tapping. This hypothesis  Mr.   Pfungsi   was  at.   first   inclined   to  A Traveler's Experience  r   ���������������������������  "My one wish will be," writes  llany P..

He found that as soon as a  questioner had given ,a problem to the  horse, he, the questioner, would involuntarily bend his head and body slightly forward, when thc horse would at  once begin tapping, As soon as tho desired answer was reached the questioner, Again involuntarily, would make a  slight, upward jerk of the hoad, and  the horse would stop tapping!-  Every one of the horse's-quostioners, -  Mr. Pfungst found, from Mr. von Os-  ton to himself, made these "minimal  muscular movements"' without being  aware tiint ho did so. But in order to  be certain that it was thus that Hans  was able to solve the problems given  him Mr. Pfungst undertook an elaborate series of experiments with twenty-  five persons of bothsexes and every ago  '(including children of six) in which hc  played the part of Hans, and sought to  obtain the correct answers to questions  given him mentally- by watching the  faces of his interviewers-while he wau  rapping out hie replies.

We call it  "Drcams-Come-Truo," because long bo-  .fore we got the reward money .wo had  planned and hoped for just such a  home, but, as Jack was only a "scrub"  reporter then, the realization of our  dreams seemed far distant.  And Jack ha,s developed a healthy  respect for tho curiosity of Avomon and  their love of bargain-hunting, for if I  had- not possessod these "weaknesses  of the sex" I would not havo gone to  tho unclaimed baggago sale and there  would have beon no week of adventure,  no bronze imago, uo reward, Jio  "Dream-Come-Truo." We would be  living yet in our tiny three-room apartment in the foggy city, and Jack would  still be "doing" police news.  But one morning, moro than a year  ago, I chanced to spy an. announcement  in the newspaper, and then -our adventures began.   Tt read:  A sale of "3,500 pieces of unclaimed  baggage, consisting of trunks,' boxes,  suit-cases, hampers, etc., will be held  at the Southern Pacific warehouse at  ton o'clock a.m. on April 15th.  That ,ad suggested a bargain and a  mystery, and the combination was irresistible, so when Jack said he had  orders to attend,the sale to look for  some bits of local color for his paper,  I eagerly coaxed him to take me with  him.^  "Yotrdon't mean you would'trudge  I--        through-tho  mud  and rain on  a cold  day like this just to see a few boxes  and   trunks  auctioned  off?"

In fact, for "days it seemed  every time I turned around I came face  to face with that man.

It was an effigy of Mait-  roya, the Buddhist Messiah, concoived  as an obese Chinaman with smiling foa-  ��������������������������� tures, and was beautifully molded and  chiseled, it was, indood, a bargain,  and yet, to my mind, this did not satisfactorily explain the conduct of the  man behind us. He semed prosperous  aud cultured, and not nt all the kind  to make a scene in public for the sako  of getting a ton-dollar article for two  i dollars.  Jack interrupted my puzzled thoughts  by suggesting that thc idol would make  a novel and charming wedding present  for Mhvy Ralston, my girlhood chum,  who was to be married the following  week. I immediately acquiesced, for it  was really a little beauty, aad I knew  its value would be enhanced in Mary's  eyes when she learned how we acquired  it. Mother was going to Hillsdalo to  attend the wedding, and when she left  that afternoon sho carried in her travelling bag our present to Mary.  The next few days were so filled with  preparations for a little trip we were  planning to take that the incident  of the sale was forgotton, except when  I encountered my neighbor, which was  often, and sometimes in places men  seldom frequented.  We left on a Saturday for Mount  Tamalpais, where wo secured a room  at thc tavorn, and settled ourselves for  a week of solid enjoyment. Early tho  next morning wc started for our initial  tramp over tho mountain trails. The  unaocustomed   exercise   soon   tired  us,  and wc were back at the tavern by  threo o'clock. There I found the following note from the manager of the  apartment house where we lived:  "Dear Mrs. Dawson: When the house-  boy wont into your apartment this  morning he found everything in the utmost confusion. The contents of overy  drawer wero turned out upon the floor  and the whole' apartment has the 'appearance of having beon ransacked by  burglars. Upon inquiry I found that  no other apartment in. the house had  been entered, so before reporting to the  police I want to ask if,-in your'haste  to depart, you left things in the above  condition. If so, pardon my intrusion,  but I thought it best to lot you know.  Please telophone me as soon as possible,  and if the apartment has been entered  I .will notify the police at once.  "Very sincerely,- '-  "CABBIE DAVIS."  Now here was a pretty kettle.of fish!  L most certainly had not left my apartment in that condition, and yet how  could anyone get into it? Bright lights  burned in the halls all- night,- and.the  desk of the" telephone operator was  located to command a-view of the stairs  and elevator. True, an iron fire escape  ran just outside our window, but our  apartment was a corner one, and one  taking that route would have to pass  the windows of the four apartments on  the samc> floor, and so run the risk of  being seen or heard. And why should  a burglar choose our-apartments in preference to others which woro occupied  by people of wealth? We certainly had  no valuables to tempt them. However,  if our little belongings were not costly  wo were at least fond of them, so we  decided to catch the" next train to San  Francisco and see just what was - the'  extent of our loss. We hurried'to our  room to change our clothes, but when  the door waa - opened .we stopped in'  amazement." Our steamer trunk and  suit-casos-were turned upside'downj and  the contents scattered all.over the floor.  The hotel proprietor, when, questioned,  could give no" explanation.. He said the  servants were all trustworthy, the-key  to the room had .not boon taken .from  the office, and no - other room in" the  hotel had been entered.' Our room was  one of a' suite,* but, the. door between  it and tlie next-room. was, locked and  the proprietor.had the key'in his possession.-, The-usual obig Sunday crowd  had"been;.tor the' tavern .for.the day,  and the room "had been rented, to' two  "men who wished to rest for a couple of  hours" after-their, climb7;from- Mill -Valley.

However, we had little, time, to worry,- for. the last-.train  left-the tavern at four .o'clock and we  had to hurry to make it. -"  .-7 -  Wheu we reached .our apartment .we  found, thing's as Mrs." Davis, had described- them, but 'much to our relief  nothing'was missing. .-We decided" it  would- be useless to notify the police,  for they would, take small interst in  the capture-of a burglar who would  break into a house and steal ."nothing  I confess I: was rather nervous by this  time, "and a foreboding of impending  evil had settled upon my spirits,-but  after hours of searching our brains' for  some motive, with no result,-Jack and  I decided that it was just a coincidence  after .all, and we would go back, to  Tamalpais in the morning and forget  about it.  When   we  awoke  the  next  dav  the hospitals and viewing the bodies  in the morgue, but found no traee of  Jack.  In the late afternoon a letter came  from Jack. With trembling fingers I  tore it open. The cool audacity of it  dazed me.   It read:  "Dear'Wife: Do not worry about me.  Had to go away on a little business trip.  Will bo back within a week and will  thon explain all.   Yours,  "JACK."  I found myself unconsciously cutting  open the envelope so 1 could soe the inside of tho flap that glues down. When  Jack and I wero sweethearts we both  wrote bborthaii'1 and in our letters  we always put some little message of  lovo in shorthand on tho inside of the  flap of tho envelope boforo sealing it.  It scorned so much more personal tucked away in the dark, where only one  who knew the secret could find it. Always T looked for the little "I love  you" before reading the letter. And  we had. never abandoned this sentiment  of our courtship days. [ scarcely expected to find such a mossage in .this  letter, but to my delight there were  the well-known little curved outlines,  though written so dimly with pencil I  had difficulty in reading them. And I  began to doubt I was reading aright,  so astonishing was the message: -  "I am held a prisoner, but am well  treated. Don't worry about me.

Though be   we  nvero-greeted^by^a^t^ffdy'doWnpouf of  rain, so we postponed our return to  Tamalpais for another day. Jack was  content to spend a lazy morning in the  houso, but by afternoon the inactivity  wore on his nerves, and ho said, he  would go down to the office for a fow  hours and watch thc other fellows  work.  "Have dinner a littlo earlior than  usual, and I will got tickets for tho  theatrc^Jonight," he called back, as. ho  sta'rted off in high spirits.  .Our dinner hour came, but no Jack.  Seven, eight, nine, and still hc had not  come. I was making a mighty effort to  be bravo, but when eleven o'clock  struck and hc had not como Y was almost frantic. It was so unlike Jack,  lie was the most thoughtful of husbands, and oven if he had found an  interesting assignment at tho oflice and  had rushed off to fill it he would certainly havo telephoned me.  Recent events had unnerved me, and  all kinds of horrid fan������������������ies took possession of my brain. -In one nightmare I  pictured Jack as having beon run over  by a street car; and again as wandering  the streets in a fit of mental aberration. I had heard of such cases. Thon  f fancied he might have deserted me,  foolish as I know the thought to be,  and there flowed great tears of self-  pity. And all the time I was listening  for the sound of the latch-key in tho  door,  With a great effort I recovered my  mental health, and tried to think only  of the probable and reasonable causes  of his absence, and to decide the sensible thing to do. After midnight I telephoned to the office, but I had waited  too long. The paper had gono to press  and the few straggling roporters still  on duty had not soen Jack. I shrank  from ?he publicity attached to reporting his absence to the police, and do-  cidod at least to wait until morning.  Mr. Marshall camo up from the office  in the early morning to offor Mb assistance. Jack was very popular with  the boys, and they wero just as anxious  about him. and fully as puzzled as I  was.   He  spent  the  morning  visiting  wildered, I was happier than 1 had been  since Jack left.. Now I knew he vwas  not away of his own violition. With  feverish zeal I set to work to carry  out his instructions. I knew Jack had  some good and sufficient reason for  making such an unusual request, so I  telographed Mary and was confident  she would do as I asked.  Then I had a long talk with myself  as to the best method of finding Jack  Somehow I did not like to tell hiB busi  ness associates about the message' on  the envelope flap! It Bcemed so melo  dramatic and unbelievable,that sueh a  thing should occur in the heart of a  big city. In my perplexity a rnost'il  luminating thought flashed through my  brain.' Why-not"take my troubles to  kind^'old Mr. Drake? He and grandfather had been ''to ..college, together,  and thore an attachment was "formed  that "lasted .throughout the-nearly aev:  enty years of grandfather fs life. Every  summer Mr. Drake would spend his vacation at our home, and among my most  pleasant recollections, were the long  summer ."evenings when.-I sat on the  porch steps, and-listened to. the marvelous adventures ., of San Francisco 's  most famous, detective. Since grandfather's death-we ���������������������������had heard" nothing  of Mr. Drake, but I, instinctively;felt  that he'was'the' one for me to appeal  toJif he" weref.still-in^the..'.city.-,v^v-\.'iA  Froni tho telephone .directory I learned that his,home was only a few blocks  away; so1"my resolve was scarcely made  before I ..was -.speeding ionV-myr. way.- to  see-'him.7'I 'found*rbim;'the_ same kind  old man-as of bld:.jHi8~keen,7penetra-  ting ,oyc " and ��������������������������� energetic -- movements  seemed to", put to route the mute .testimony of'tho.beautiful, snow-whitefhair  and proclaimed .him stillI-a -young "man.  Real pleasure at seeing me was shown  in his greeting, and' before .he would  let me.talk of businoss he insisted that  I_ drink a cup of-tea with hini-while we  talked of-bygone day's. ' So deftly did  he guide my thoughts'that I'had almost  forgotten my distress, and it was with  a guilty start, that I rocalled the objeot  of my visit. Then he said: "You look  much better now, dear, and have a bit  of color, in your cheeks. -'-I ameuro you  are much more fit to tell mo what has  brought you to seek'' my counsel. I  can.see it is serious, so omit none of  tho-details, no"matter how trivial they  may seem to you."  - So I related" the whole story, beginning with'the purchase of the box at  the sale.  With an occasional "woll-directed  quostion^Mr^Drake^brougbt-out^Bome"  point I had omitted, or" kept mo to the  main ovchts when I was inclined to  digress. Hc insisted upon my describing to tho minutest detail the appearance of the young- man who occupied  the apartment noxt to ours. This I  was able to do accurately, aiid tho old  detective's face evidenced great satisfaction as I proceeded.  When I had finished Mr. Drake took  boUi iny hajidsin hisjirid_said:__"Now,  Dorothy,"drop all your fears about Jack,  for before many hours I shall rcstoro  him to you. Providonco has directod  you to mo, for not only will wo roscue  ���������������������������luck, but we will capture the cleverest  lliief i'n San Francisco. You must loavc  these matters entirely to me. You  need a good rest, so while [ am on the  trail of your hiding husband, my housekeeper will mako you comfortable in  one of the guest rooms. Before you  retire, however, please write out an  order on your friend in Hillsdale to do-  liver to my son the Chinese imago, for  it is essential that I secure that at the  earliest possible momont."  Tho excitement under which I had  boen laboring, coupled with the loss of  sleep, had completely exhausted mo,  and I submitted readily onough'to the  motherly housekeeper who insisted upon  putting me to bed at once. Fooling  that I could loave everything to tho  kind old detective, I soon, drifted into  a dreamless sloop.  When I was awakoned it was to look  into Jack's smiling eyes and to be  clasped in his arms. Jt was early morning, my sloop having remained unbroken through the long night. Breath-  lossly T listened to Jack's rocital of his  experiences since his departure for tho  office.  As he walked down the corridor to  the elevator, hc was met by the young  man of the neighboring apartment, who  greeted him in a friendly manner and  asked him if lie was interested in pictures. When assured that he was, he  invited Jack to inspect his latest canvas. Thinking it but an act of neighborly friendliness, Jack entered the  open apartment, only to have the door  closed and locked behind hira and fco  bo confronted by an ugly revolver.  Taken entirely by surprise, he waa unable to offer resistance and was compelled to enter an interior room, where  he was kept under rthe constant surveillance of one of the two' men who  occupied the apartment Ho was informed that he must disclose the whereabouts of the image, and so soon as  his captors had secured possession of  it ho would be given his freedom. Thoy  allowed him to write the one letter to  me, so that I would not tako steps to  find him, but otherwise he was ao closely watched that communication ' with  the outside world waa impossible. At  first he refused to give the desired information, but, tired of his imprisonment, he was on the point of doing so,  when Detective Drake and his men descended upon the apartment and took  them all into captivity.  At this point breakfast was announced, and having made a hasty toilet,  Jack and I descended to the dining-  room to find Mr. Drake awaiting us.  [ was eager to learn how he knew  where to find Jack, and my curiosity  was satisfied by the detective's recital  as we partook of the delightful breakfast set before us.  "You see, Dorothy," he said, "when  you told me your experiences yesterday  and described your neighbor to ,"me,  your story dovetailed so well with a  case I already was working on that I  felt sure I knew where Jack was. I'did  not want- to toll you, however, until  I had proved 'my theory to be correct.  While you slept, I took a number of my  men and went to tho apartment adjoining yours, whero Jack was rescued  and his jailors were taken into' custody. Then, turning to Jack, Mr. Drake  asked: "Do you recall the theft of  Mrs. Crew's necklace some two months  ago?"  " Before Jack could reply, the door flew  .open and Richard Drake rushed in with  the .Chinese "image in ,his arms. With  almost feverish haste, Mr. Drake unwrapped the image and felt over- its  entire surface. Suddenly, with^a click,  the head flew back, disclosing "to-.view  a velvet-lined receptacle. When overturned, there rolled out the most wonderful chain of sparkling diamonds -I  ever saw.    ".*-,-  "The.Crew necklace,'-^ shouted Jack,  the details^of tho.,whole ��������������������������� case,flashing  through-*hi8 mind, for he had <been assigned-to the task of writing up its  disappearance for his "paper.    ���������������������������  .'But"how did it get'into the Chinese  image, and why^wasit left at .the  check- room?"-I asked.    *v    -  .

In'spite, of all'his efforts, however, Mr.  Drake has been unable vto secure any  proof to confirm his "suspicions, but he  had- not lost sight of ,the young man  and believed isome day he. would trap"  him."  -- ��������������������������� *'" - .c*     '     -.'-������������������������������������������������������  "And ' remember, Dorothy," :Mr.  Drake said, as he finished his explanation, '' there is still a reward "outstanding amounting to $40,000 for the return  of those jewels, half of which is yours,  for without your assistance I would  -neyer^havc^found^the^nocklaco^^-  ; ���������������������������=-  And   thus 'we   came   to   have  "Dreams-Come-Truc.", .  the tracks; and especially to tho fact  that violations of tho law are invari-"  ably punished.

Thc largo  ratio of fatalities to injuries, which is  Hcvornl times larger than tho ratio that  obtains in thc case of accidents to passengers and employees, suggests that  practically all of theso accidents were  due to trespassers being struck by moving trains. The records of tho commission show that in 1S9S, 4,063 trespassers  lost their lives on American railroads;  that five yoars later the number of kill-  oded was 5,000, and that in 1907 it rose  to 5,G12���������������������������that is to say, on every day  of that year an average of ovor L5  pooplo lost their lives entirely through  their own folly in trespassing on the  right-of-way of the railroads. Figures  compiled by the Pennsylvania Railroad  alone show that -IG5 passengers lost  their lives ou that system's linos in  ]899, and 781 were killod in 1904; while  in 1907 the number reached 915, an aver-  ago of about three for ever}' business  day of the year. In the last-named  year, this company inaugurated a vigorous campaign against trespassers, and  as a result tho number of fatalities in  1908 was reduced to 757.  Thero is no country in the world  whero the loss of life due to trospassing  on railroads approaches theso figures,  not oven if wo take into consideration  thc smaller mileago of the railway systems in Europe aud elsewhere.

FAIRY STORY FROM VICTORIA  A despatch from Victoria *<-lls this  interesting bit of story, which will  amuse those who know the facts:  "After three traverses, thc Vernon  arson case in which Frank Belmont  and Jas. A. Dake were jointly indicted a year or two ago, has passed  from the active criminal calendar,  nolle prosequis having been entered  by the crown during the progress of  the recent court -of assize at V.ernon.  The case will be remembered as that  of the jeweler, Belmont, who is  charged with having arranged for the  destruction of his store by fire, thc  latter to be caused by an ingenious  clockwork mechanism which was to  automatically set the place afire during the still watches of the- night.  The clock went off before it had accomplished thc task proposed for it,  attracting thc attention of the nifiht  watchman and causing him to investigate with the result that the fire  was prevented. Belmont escaped ancl  was never apprehended. The case  against Dake has been from tiiu- to  time "stood over" in the hope that  the principal might be brougat to the  bar of justice. As Belmont's whereabouts are still unknown to t'he police, it was felt that it was unjust to  keep Dake longer in custody, and the  case was therefore abandoned by the  crown."  ���������������������������-���������������������������-������������������������������������������������������������������������-���������������������������   ���������������������������   ���������������������������   ���������������������������   ���������������������������  ���������������������������-���������������������������-��������������������������� ���������������������������-���������������������������  Dry Goods & Millinery Dept.  ��������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������  Heavy Gloves  and Hosiery  for Winter  ������������������Kimona Cloth  Drawn Work  1  D. & A.

The  Courier says: "Some very mean and  senseless mischief,was perpetrated on  Halloween by some boys who should  know better. It does not take a  colossal brain to discriminate between pure, innocent fun, even if mis-  chevious, ancl malicious destruction  of property. The boys who worked  wholesale destruction of ornamental  picket fences along Bernard Ave.  must have, a queer twist of mind  when they can see,any humor in conduct- of that sort, and- a wholesome,  dose of strap would be good medicine  to impress upon them the distinction  between fun and contemptible meanness. As the consequence of- their  so-called frolic, six boys suffered the  public ignomy of being taken in  charge yesterday during school hours  by Constable MacRae. In the Police  Court the boys at first stoutly denied their guilt, hut under examination they finally admitted it, and  they are to come up again to-day to  receive their punishment."
