Dick went  along seasonin' an' aililiu' tin' stirrin'  nn ' not secniin' to pay a mite of atlcn  r.iun, until finally Jabez got tired of ap-  prei-.Jtuin' himself, an' sez, "Well,  what do you think ot this little plant  anyway?"  " Do you like the .-.ccuery around here  ���������������������������jr do you have to live hen. on account  of your health?'1 sex Dick, sort of unconcerned like.  .Jabez. looked at him about a .min  ute to kiud of get lhe drift of his  remark, au' then he hc/., "'What do you  mean by ih.it?"      ���������������������������  f:\Yhy," sez Diek, "'you ain't mak-  jii'' two per cent, pro/it, an' '[ was ju.st  wonderin' what you stayed here for���������������������������if  when folks got  [fe was game  the credit.

Iiis  hands were fair size but white, an' they  stayed white.    They had a nervous way  of   fussin'   around   with   things   when  over he got to thinkin'';  but after all,  the thing that  was  the  final  call  was  his eyes.     They were bright an' set in  under heavy  brows:  but    they     never  seemed  tryin'  to bend you, like some  eyes do, (hey just seemed so completely  sure of what they saw, an' they seemed  to have scon so much beforehand, that  a   feller   was  tempted   to slick  fo  the  truth   in   front of   Vm���������������������������even     when  it  wasn't   altogether   convenient.

They was like a couple  u' young children; but Barbie 'wasn't  (juite so high-headed with Diek after  the dog affair, an' r.hoy got to ridin'  together qui Lo. a bit themsoive<s. Barbie was just as good friends with me  a.s ever; but J could see--any one could  sec.���������������������������that Jabez was willin' io call Dick  a son-in-law just the minute that 'Barbie was.  By the time iio had been thore a year  Dick was the big head chief, an' the  ranch was boomin' along like a river  steamboat. He alius got the best of  everything in the way ol: supplies, an'  iwery laddio-buek in the West knew of  it; so 'at a Diamond Dot puncher didn't throw up his job joHt. for exercise.  The' was a swarm o' whito-fucod calves,  un1 about half of 'om wore other fellers' brands, which was a receipt for a  lot of fancy money; so 'at Jabez was  as well satisfied as tho men; an' even  Barbio had come to own up that Dick  was the fit tin'est man in those parts.  (To be Continued)  THE HUDSON BAY ROUTE  -('By 1,. S. Amery, M.P., Eng.)  splendid pulpwood, but a great deal, of  excellent, land winch is destined sooner  or later to be cultivated.    That particular region is being moro directly opened  up by lines coming  up  from Ontario,    but   its    development   will  undoubtedly be hastened hy  the opening  up of the sea route out of Hudson Bay  and by the general increase of interest  in  the  .Hudson  Bay   region  once. if,  is  made easy of access.      A  development  of." the lake fisheries along the route of  the Hudson Bay Bail way cau be reckoned ou, and there are great possibilities���������������������������though there are also somo doubts  ���������������������������as  to the  fishery  in *'thof Bay   itself..  The question of .the mineral wealth of  this   region   is  still   purely  conjectural.  Copper and  gold   have   been   found  on  the western shores of the Bay, north of  Churchill;   there  i.s  unlimited   iron  ore  in Labrador.      What else there may bo  has  still   fo  1)0  determined  by  systematic  exploration or by  accident.      .But  wheu   wc   remember   that   it  was  practically to a mere accidental by-product  of railway  building  that,  w.   owe  both  the  nickel  mines  of -Sudbury and  the  silver mines  of Cobalt,  we cau. safely  assume that in somo form or other the'  opei.'ng up of the  Hudson  Bay region  will    be   similarly    rewarded.       While,  other  more  attractive   portions  of   the  Dominion   arc   still  almost,   virgin,   the  opening up of the  [fndson  Bay region  will necessarily be a slow matter     But  that it wili come is certain.      It-will  never be a closely settled farming region   or   a.   highly   developed   centre   of  great, industries.      But  it   will   have  a  life of its own. aud breod a hardy pop  elation  of its  owu,  which  will   form a  material   addition^ to   the  strength   of  tbo .Dominion and of the Kmpire.

Now the thing of importance about  all these names is not that they arc  funny, or that they reproduce Russia  and. Dutch-town on Canadian soil, but  that they are going on our electoral  lists, aud the men who possess them  will be counted amoug the bona tide  citizens of Canada. As time goes on  and the more adaptative of them have  become fairly well assimilated, we shall  have to,live on neighborly terms with  them, and it therefore behooves us to  got used to thoir' names now.  If we don't like this kind of tormin-  ology how would it, do to mako all  funny-named immigrants take new and  loss dangerous-looking names on landing V  AI r.  ceedin  b  an  intimate.  it wasn't for aoinothi:.' else beside the  til thy looger.''  Jabez, ho jumps to his fool an' goes  all through it again tellin' all he has  took in an' all he has paid ouL; while  "Dick kept alien din' to hi* pots an'  pans~thc same as if he was stone deaf.  Jabez milled on an' ended up with:  ''An' this here ranch has the best  --rater an' the best'range an' the best  shelter of any ranch in the state. What  do you. think' of-thal?"  "Why, I think if all the more reason  why ii should pay a business profit,"  diawls Diek. " Only J as I week, I heard  you complainin' somethin' fierce because you had to put up for a new  ireight:wagon. The gieal trouble with  vou' is that you don'I have no system.  . Vou Deed a manager, a mau who lakes  an interest in modern progress, a man  who riees (hat the. rest o' the incu pay  .a profit. I don'l mean a foreman, you  got- plenty o' Ihem. I mean n busi  ness man. Vou ain't no business man;  you don't like it."  Well, Jabez was siupciiej. He'd  never had nu wage owner dump advice  on him before, an' here wan it tramp,  ���������������������������ia yonvHiight r,nay,-:xvhn<,.started. in'by  Dogs just doted ou  tier, and she recipercated full measure;  but she had oue dog what was only a  dog by what they cull an act of courtesy. 1.1 must 'a' weighed fully two  pounds, an' had bushy hair at that,  ft had a bark to it. like one o' those  intellectual dolls what ean say Ma-maa,  Ma-maa, but the critter was as proud  o' this bark as though it shook all  the buildiu's on the place. . The blame  thing wasn't physically able to inflict,  much more damage than a mosquito,  but it was full as bloodthirsty, an' it  had took'a. keen disregard for Bill Andrews.  Bill Andrews was still tho foreman,  an' one day ho was ou his way to the  oiiice t.o make a report to Dick when  this imitation dog came sail in' around  the comer an' took a grab'at his leg.  lie had a brand new paii of pants on,  an/ they was outside his boots.

M.. l'��������������������������� the writer of  this article on the Hudson Bay Railway, is able to speak with authority  on the .subject;. lie accompanied Earl  Omy, the Govonior-Oenoral, on his trip  ex to fludsou Bay, in August of last <-ear,  traversing the, country which will be  opened up by the proposed railway, and  visiting both Fort Churchill and Fort  Nelson, one of which places will be its  Hudson Bay lenninus.  THAT  the   route  is u  foaaible  proposition   can������������������ hardly    be   denied.  The real question is:    Dojs it represent     an    economy    over    existing  routes  which1 justifies  tlie  expenditure  from a strictly business point of view?  Advocates of the route have estimated  the saving iu freight as fully 15 cents a  bushel, or :">s. a  quarter on wheat, and  as ,,������������������2 lo ������������������2 10s, per bend of cattle.    A  safer estimate would, perhaps, be '2s. a  quarter aiid .CJ ou cattle.     The advantage   on   inward   trauie   would   be   proportionate.      On this basis thero. ought  to   be  no  question  as  to  the  eventual  magnitude and. paying character of the.  trade    carried    on    during    the    four  months'- o-  tlie  open   season.     For "the  rest of" the   year' the", steamer!? .would,  presumably,   be "diverted   to   Halifax,  sydney,  or -St.  John's,  while  the  railway   would be confined to a  local  traffic "which   may at;  first   be   vory  small,  but is sure to rise to very respectable  proportions   with   tlio   general  development of the Hudson Bay region.    Taking  all   the   various   factors   into  consideration, it is reasonable to conclude  thnt  the  opening  up  of this  route  is,  standing by itself, a  fair business proposition.  From thc point of view of tlie West  and of the Dominion Oovernmeut thoic  are, however, other fnclors in favor of  fho Hudson Bay Kouto which justify  State assistance, if such be necessary,  i" opening up. The saving in freight,  even if only directly applicable to a  portion of the outward and inward  traffic, nf the West, would tend to keep  down transportation chargvs "all round  and to push on enterprise? such as, for  instance, the Georgian Bay Canal, for  offeeUng new- economies on the old  route. ' The benefit To the West, both  direct and indirect, in .veenring a better  market for its exports nud paying less  for ils manufactured imports should be  \T>y^niurk������������������Mlf-=^T-he=bonofit-=to���������������������������Britisl:  trade", which will by tho Hudson Day  Route he placed in as favorable a position lo compete with its American rivals in the West as it now is iu Bastern  Canada, will be no less pronounced.  Nor will the advantage be eon lined  to British importers. The manufacturers of Nov.! Scotia and Now Brunswick,  who have hitherto been nt a great disadvantage, in the market of the Went,  aa .compared ..with _t)ieir__Ont:irio rivals,  will be placed on more, oven terms.  Thc sugar and fruits of the West Indies are also not unlikely to profit by  (he route, onco it is in full working order. As a new and powerful link uniting Western Canada with Kastorn Canada, with the United Kingdom, and  with the Umpire as a whole, tht; Hudson Bay Kouto deserves consideration  uot only as an interesting business proposition bul as tt groat national and  Imperial project, a worthy sequel to  the great -railway projects 'by which  the Dominion has been built up and  united  in  the past.  So far 1 have dealt with the Hudson  Bay Route, simply as a new niaiu nr-  Uiry of commerce between tho Canadian Northwest, and the outside world.  ���������������������������But the building of the railway ancl  the opening up of the Hudson Bay region t.o the enterprise of the pioneer and  tbe prospector will, it is certain, have  important consequences of its own.  There is very little-doubt that a large  proportion of the belt of land north of  the present limit uf occupation ia fit for  cultivation. Between the Saskatchewan'and Churchill Rivers it is estimated there aro between :il),000,00u and  50,0000,000 acres of land capable of  bearing wheat. The proposed railway  would cross the eastern end oi this  belt, and eventually a main line might  run directly from Edmonton right  through it to thc Hudson Bay Railway.  The country around James Bay, at thc  extreme southern end of Hudson Bay,  contains not   only   immense   ureas 'of  SOME WESTERN NAMES  Sever..] hundred uew towns are to be  built in the West, wo are told, this year  and next. They will all havo to be named.  Ft is a comparatively easy thing to pick  out a fownsite on tho prairie, but where  does the supply of 'brand-now names  come from'. The now map-making that,  is continually going on in Western Canada is not merely a question of where  the towns shall be put but of what they  shall be called.  This   matter   of   place-names   iu   the  West is an interesting bit of study, and  reveals not ouly an amaxing profundity  but   a    very   considerable   originality.  They are not the  kind of names that  are  known  in   the  Kasl.o  Very seldom  does a western (own duplicate the'naine  of an eastern town���������������������������which i.s more than  can  be said  of  the  Bast  itself,  where  there are  many  repetitious.    A glance  at  the newest map of thc prairio provinces will show an interesting variety  of names that .are practically copyright.-  Thcy are the'.kind of names that would  not fit well in the Fast; simply because  they have grown put of western experiences and'conditions; The earliest were  rndian,' and,-many   sweet-sounding--fn-  .dian  names are ou  the map;  cnen lhe  cue was-taken, from the appearance of  Nature, particularly in the oasoot rivers, hills.i'and valleys; "and-Iatterly the  surname.? of men are being commemorated, men who have taken .some part in  the establishment of the town! or,  in  thc  case  of mauy  of   the  newest  stations,  tho officials or engineers of the  railway which is bringing the town into  being. *  But. even greater iii variety, interest,  and occasional oddity than the place-  names .are the names of the people.

Not eontont to be  the museum of thc world, she has east  a longing eye upon her old eommorclnl  supremacy and has dreamed dreams of  its restoration. To this ond she has  tried to deepen the Grand Canal, and  the result has been a flow of water  around the ancient foundations of the  i:ity._and with lamentable_con!.c,qtii.!ices.

Souday asks if Venice  is doomed to disappear and if the death  of hor commerce is to be followed by  the death of her romance.  1't is to be feared that Al. Souday  must he answered iu the aflirmative, although it would be a pity to hasten  the inevitable by an attempt to revive  commercial glories that are glorious  only because they are blurred by the  mists of time.

Then again. As soon as Zrim-Buk  is applied to a sore, or a cut, or to  skin disease, it stops the smarting.  That is why children are such friends  of Zam-Buk. They care nothing for  the science of the thing. All they  know is that Zam-Buk stops their  pain. Alotlierd should never forget  this.  Again, As soon as Zam-Buk is applied to a wound or to a diseased  part., the cells beneath the skin's surface arc so stimulated that new  healthy tissue is quickly formed. This  ���������������������������forming of fresh healthy tissue from  below is Zam-Buk's secret of healing.  The tissue thus formed is worked up  to the surface and literally casts off  the diseased tissue above it. This i?  why Zam-Buk cures are permanent.

As you probably know,  velvet has almost entirely displaced velour iu the affections  of the up-to-date home keeper, this season. She has extended her predilection for velvet gowns to make it include  that most artistically satisfying of all materials in every  sort of diawiug-room aud library drape and cover. French  velvet, an imported fabric, is a most, exquisite material  used in this way. Tt is a very recent importation, coming  iu a variety of beautiful shades, including golden brown, old  blue, that charming silvery shade of green known to milliners  as "reseda," as well us a good half down other colors. But  \l~'n thc original fashion in whieh-it may-hc-decorated to  match the rest of the room that insures the permanent popularity <vf "French velvet with milady who delights in making  her home furnishings a triumph of artistic achievement.  Suppose you have a now rug, or bolter still, a handsome old  one, whose pattern and coloring yon wish reproduced in  curtains or hangings. The portion of the rug design you  want to use is traced on flic velvet in exactly the same way  you used to "burn" leather for pillows and so on when tlie  craze for "burnt-work" raged some time ago. The pattern  is then filled in with oils, in precisely the colors of the rug,  excepting that on tho veivcfc they are infinitely softened  and shaded. I saw one set of hangings that, was going into  a beautiful Orcaccntwood home. Thoy w?re of golden brown,  and the borders wore all in autumn tints of reddish gold,  bronze and rich brownish yellows. If you are clever with  brush and pencil you can buy the material at a nominal cost  and still have a library or drawing-room set that a real millionairess will envy you. if you must be very economical indeed, and aren't accomplished along those particular lines,  get thc inexpensive cotton taffetas and dimities that  come in wide ribbon-like bands ready for eutting out and  sewing on plain materials in decorative border designs.  There are a variety of colored flower borders, with their  clustered leaves of'green, that, turned "wrong side out,"  their brilliant colors dull and blur into thc much-to-bc-dft-  sired "shadow effects" popular just now.  The prettiest thing T saw among the new upholsteriugs  was a material something like plain old-fashioned denim, but  with dainty cicam aud white backgrounds, and the. most exquisite pale blue and pink and delicate green flowers scattered over it in this same"shadow effect." At a little distance  it resembled nothing so much as a, huge ���������������������������'yard-wide bolt of  Persian ribbon. It i.K used almost exclusively for drawing-  rooms and reception rooms, an obliging .young salesman informed rue. I hadn't either of those, so Y bought a yard  to cover a sofa pillow or so.   It's lovely.  '**���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������."'

Suppose you are-a stranger in Winnipeg, or in any of our  larger cities nowadays, for that matter, and have two or  three, or may be half a dozen kiddies,' and are trying to  find a roof tree to stow thern away under. If one is financially able to purchase a home of one's own, all very well,  lint in looking over the "houses to rent" columns in the  daily papers, or "apartments to let" lists in the agents'  offices, tho "no children" warning appears with appalling  frequency. J know a little mother, newly arrived in Winnipeg, with four charming children, who has stored her modest  household goods, loaned out one of the children to a relative,  sent another to the country, and has settled down with her  two youngest to. what is apparently a fruitless "house-to-  house canvass" foi a home. From apartment aud cottage  alike shchas been turned away, so soon as that dark secret  of a family of four has been revealed, ft seems that, something is wrong with the scheme of things when you look from  the bright, healthy children, with. their pretty faces and  silken curls, to the sign 'which reads "No cats, dogs, parrots  or children allowed"���������������������������now doesn't it?  Have you noticed what a quantity of space is devoted  nowadays to reading matter designed especially to interest  children? There are almost as many children's periodicals  as'theie are publications devoted to."woman's interests."  Even in the over-crowded columns of the daily press, the  "children's page" and the "woman's department"- have  sense. If not, we may "skim" or ignore, aud no particular  harm done. .'    '  But how about the children's writers! A child's sensitive imagination is a very delicate, impressionable thing.  Well do J, myself, remember, for instance, the fearful joy  wilh which I devoured the legend ,of thc "hobgoblins and  the golden ball" by day, and shivered with the covers pulled  over my cowardly little head for half the night in a verv  agony of horror at the recollection of the slicing of the  ugly giant's head ofl'.

Is it any wonder  the district is held back ? Is it any  wonder thc   government is  backward  to  sessment down  years ago.  ESCAPING  TAXATION  The report of the recently held tax  Commission will no doubt be an interesting onef If a report were published showing the inequalities of the  present levy, it would make interesting reading. Particularly m relation  to"the district between here and Mara  and farther in the direction of Salmon Arm. The recent movement to  incorporate this section, has brought  to light some things which the Government should be apprized of, and  which, if known, would quickly lead  to a re-adjustment on an aquitable  basis. There is something wrong in  Denmark when property valued at a  figure within the $10,000 mark can be  held on an annual tax ol $1.80. If  the Government would revise the  present assessment and make the levy  more on the lines of equity, it would  be the greatest blessing to the district. At the present time a strenuous fight is being made against rural  incorporation by those whose taxes  have been little or nothing. Cases  have been reported where the owners  of 160 acres of valuable land, held at  $40 an acre, have been getting ofl  with a tax of ������������������1-80 per annum. Another who values his property at  ?10 000 pays the munificent sum of  $7o'.00 per year, and complains even  at that of the high taxes.  These, it is true, are extreme cases,  and yet, wc are informed there are  many instances reported which are  almost as bad, and. show the marked  inequality of the government assessment. These properties are not situated far away from the trunk roads,  but" on " the contrary, some of -them  have, government roads .running  *   -hy them or through them or to them,  wonuer uiu Bu������������������cu..^u. *~ ���������������������������  in dealing liberally with this district which amis  in the matter of road and bridge  grants ? It is really not much wonder that these men are opposing the  proposed incorporation of the district, for then their properties would  be assessed at somewhere near the  value, and the district would ad-1  vanco accordingly. In thc advance  thc owners would reap the benefit���������������������������a  benefit a hundred fold greater than  that which comes to them through  S the ridiculously low assessment and  i light taxation. This, perhaps, they  have not seen, but they will some  day. In the meantime it is up to Uie  Provincial Government to readjust  thc matter of taxation in this district. Not that there should be any  hardship worked on the land owners.  But when men put a value of say $40  an acre on their land, and pay a tax  at a value of less than a cent an acre  it cannot be   any  matters up to a more equitable figure  ancl make them bear their just share  of the burden of maintenance and improvement.  It is the policy of the McBride administration to assist in every legitimate way the districts which show a  disposition to help themselves. It is  a just policy, it is the right policy.  It encourages thrift, and leads to the  fuller development of the province, so  rich in natural resources. But the  districts quite as rich m resources,  that sit back and cry eternally to be  spoonfed rather than assume a share  of the responsibility of government,  get scant treatment-the treatment  justly coming to them. It is to be  sincerely   hoped   that the farmers of  trict can have is a low assessed valuation; and the worst policy for a  town or   district   to   follow is that  keep the rate of as-  to    that   of twenty  RACING ON THE ICE  Mr. M.

A Safe Proposition
(By Elliot BaJestier)
through   nnan-
aniily  to give un
.\\   eighteen, .obliged
ciiil  se\erses  in   his
;ill thought of,- college, h'anisay Morton entered- the employ ��������� of Bradley,
Cathcait & Company, thegreat bankers and brokers of Broad .street, as a
junior clerk. At; _.thirty-five flic wan
made cashier, with the promise ol' a
pjiriiunsliiji when he hail completed the
{���������(.���������fund decade of. iiis employ. Natural
shrewdness and hard work had earned
this  leward.
Tlie twenty 3-oars would empire in
loss than :i week, consequently when
he entered the outer olHce one bright
Monday morning early in October, aud
was informed that the senior partner
wished to see him, ho felt that the hour
had a i rive J when this promise, which
had become the goal of his ambition,
was ������bo-it to  be  fulfilled.
Hn: his firs; glance at tho stern I'aco
of hi* chief as Morton opened the door
of the senior par! nor's private room,
startled him. In place of the usual
friendly morning greeting lie was received with silence, and to hi.s surprise
at the
Cathcart,  who  seldom  appeared
oflice, was also present,
fhe. junior partner, who
pacing the room, seemed
ing- at hi tn.
Before    Morton    could

Bradley spoke.
"Morton." he said sternly. ���������
conceive of circumstances under
1 might forgive a thief. 1 can
forgive a   fool."
l'V.i a moment Morton was dumb with
amazement. Then a dull llush mounted lo hia forehead. Hul a.s be attempted to speak Bradley raised a
"One moment,'' he .said
"Saturday afternoon, after
hours, .1 received a packet of fifty-one
Lhousand dollar bills, and as the time-
lock had been set on my new safe, I
placed thc money  in  my own personal
���������safe- Vou   remember,  Cathcart."
he added parenthetically, "that .last
week I placed in my oflice, and in the
office of'flic head of each department, a,
modern time-lock safe 'for my -and
their personal use, but tho old ones
have not yet been removed. Aro oue,
1 believed, knew' the combination of
my old safe but myscif. Morton, this
morning the psiekot of bills is gone."
White   with   rage at.  the   implication
tune, Morton
in   the   senior   partuor's
took   a   step    forward   with
hands,' but   by  an   effort  ho
himself.   .
-."Am i to understand that- you suspect me of this theft?" he demanded
angrily.    - - - - -
"Only you .were" aware  that   T had
-placed-tlie money thore,""said Bradley,
"and  you   returned   to   the  oflice   late
.Saturday   afternoon.    '   Do   you     deny
-tbisT" ' - -:    ���������
"J  dii.iiot."  replied  Morton shouly.
"Do you deny that you were in this
room 1"     ���������
"I do not."
"Do you deny that this is your
ing?"' '   The  senior partner held
small   sheet   <>f   paper,   evidently
from an ordinary scratch pad, on wine

Moiton paled slightly as
at if. and for a second he.
but only'for a second.

ine and
could ^easily have read the combination
when 1 opened the safe last night to
put'tho money in. Vou saw me put it
in the inner compartment and lock it.
I am willing to listen to anything you
may wish t<. ..ay, but���������" his pause-
was significant.
Morton "f     pa lior     increased.      _'[ h������l
to .put this 'trinket' in your safe! It
is very much too tame, Morton. You
should have taken time to think of
something better."
".It is the truth.���������" insisted Morton
dully, too shocked by his position to
resent the other-*s words. ''The trinket���������the ring is intrinsically .valuable,
beside tne sentiment attached to it. It,
was my mother's. When J found my
���������my friend would not be in town, I
thought ) would go and see Jack Harrison in Biooklyn, and us there have
been several robberies lately in thc
apartment house in which 1 live, and
1 did not care tu carry it about with
me, 1 decided to stop here and put the
ring in rny safe.''
Bradley and (Jathenrt exchanged
glances that betrayed plainly their disbelief, but Vaine seemed somewhat impressed.
"1 think,'' he said quietly, "that in
view of .Morton's long and honorable
service, hc should have every opportunity to clear himself of this charge. The
coincidence of the combinations 1 admit is strange, but his other statements
are capable of proof. It might, be
well for you to sec the jeweller who
had the ring, and this Harrison, Mi
Bradley. Probably Morton has the
telegram from hjs friend���������it is no lime
for concealment ^now. ltamscv���������Miss
Deeming. ���������'' ������
.  "Vou seem  to be much in Morton's
confidence,'-' observed Bradley dryly.
"Miss Virginia Deeming happens lo
be my cousin," replied Vaine, with
some asperity, "and Morton is my
friend. Naturally I knew that there
was aa understanding of sorts between
them and have expected to hear of
an engagement. My only desire now
is to see fair play. T suggest that we
call up Jack Harrison and���������"
"I did not see him," interrupted
Morton dejectedly. Fate seemed to be
doing her best to discredit him. "I
saw by the paper while on the subway
that the President would cross the city
that afternoon, and Jack's troops always act as escort so hc would probably
be at thc armory, but as I was then well
down-town I kept on to the
then returned home.'''
This time Bradley and Cathcart
laughed outright, aud even Vaine
glanced  at  his friend  anxiously.
"There-is still thc jeweller," he said
hopefully, after a moment's hesitation.
"As for the telegram from Miss Deeming, I can vouch for her being -ealled
away,- I know that.Jicr mother, who
is ill at Lakewood, sent for her Saturday."
"U seems to me," said "Cathcart,
speaking for the first time,-"that since
Vaine is. so anxious to test all of .Morton's statements, we begin with those
nearest at hand���������the combination of his
Kfli'e, and the. presence of the ring--"in
'it.'" ��������� *
"Bah!" cried Brndlev irritably.
"This is utter folly. Of course, tlie
man would prepare .some excuse for
being here after hours. The, starter,
the elevator man. a dozen persons must
have seen him." -
But he rose, nevertheless, and led
the way into the cashier's room, drew
a chair before the small safe in the
corner, and, lowering his portly form
into it, twirled the combination.
It yielded at  the fiist  attempt.
"Jluli!" grunted Bradley. "That's
the combination all right. Mut what
does it prove? Not a thing. Where's
the ring?"
"In. the drawer," said Morton

mockery of his usual pleasant greeting,

Broad street, turning automatical!}7: toward the subway station at Wall street
and  Broadway.
But one fact stood

B ra d1cy, Cathcart &
ers and brokers, was
after twenty years of
and in such a way
cloud  his  future.
More than that, if he wished to escape actual public disgrace���������arrest and
imprisonment���������-he must give up all the
fruits of those long years of labor, as
well as the tiny fortune that had come
to hi in -from his mother.
It had been hi.s custom for years, as
soon as he had saved a thousand dollars,
lo put it into a gilt-edged bond. He
owned exactly forty-nine, of these now,
and there was some twelve hundred
dollars in the bank. This fifty thousand was to have gone inlo the business
when he became a partner���������but now!
The rapid walk in the crisp autumn
air cooled his throbbing temples, and
cleared his befogged brain so that by
the time he reached Broadway, though
realisation increased his depression, he
was able fo think connectedly and with
a certain amount of calmness of ihe
condition that confronted him.
Moved by a sudden impulse to seek
solicitude and a quiet place to think,
he crossed the street and entered Trinity, lie seated himself in an empty
pew in a quiet corner, and began to
work  out his problem.'
Thore was something soothing and
restful in the dim twilight of the vast
old church, with its stately reminders
of by-gone days���������the atmosphere of
calm and peace. The world and its
complex affairs seemed to recede as the
heavy doors dulled its roar to a gentle
And there he sat for neatly the whole
two hours of.his grace, while gradually
his pulse grew normal and his brain
calm. Serious the situation certainly
was. but the "consciousness of his own
innocence asserted itself and buoyed
him up.
More, the sudden break in fhe even,
almost monotonous tenor of his life
began to act as a stimulant, to stir up
the long-dormant love of battle.      He
strength of tlie "evidence against nun
was apparent even to him, and ho felt
that to Cathcart. and Bradley it was-
almost conclusive'. For a moment, h'e
looked from one face to the other; ou
Uradlov's and Cathcart's lie. icad only
suspicion and distrust, but on Vaine's
he thought he saw pity. I hough he still
remained silent.
Willi an otJ'ort, Morton spoke.
".Saturday," he. said.      '  I got from
_ thc_jcwelIoi7s_������ -_-_n.gift for :i friend,. .I
expected to have an opportunity to deliver it. last, night, bul on arriving home
T fouud a telegram stating that���������that--
my friend had been called out of town
for several days. Y returned fo the
office and placed the-���������the tiinket in my
old personal safe, I'or the same reason
vou used yours. My new one was
locked.      It occurred  to  mc then  that
������������������ihe   safe   being    empty,     I   had     not
"""cf&nged the combination for thi.1. month
as"i!?"fnv custom, and Y did so--to thc
numbers on'that slip." He pointed,
without hesitation, io the paper in
Rradloy 's hand.
"AhT was leaving 1 started to light,
a cigar, but found my matchbox empty
and  went  into your  office, as   1   knew
vou alwavs kept a  box of matches on
your desk.      I  must have dropped  the
.slip   then.      Thai   is   all.       I   did   not
conseiouslv   know   the   combination   ol

watching   you   I   might   subconsciously
have noted it, and when occasion arose
have used it as the first series of numbers suggested. ���������  ...1. did not touch your
safe, nor did I  take the money."
Bradley smiled snooringly.
"And 'yon would have us believe, this
cock     and    bull    story?"    he    asked
angrily.      "ft is  a   remarkable  coincidence that you select the same combination for your safe as I for mine!    Vour
explanation is more croditablc to your
knowledge of psychology than  to your
common   aense.      Quite   plausible,   too,
lhat  you  would   take   the   trouble   to
come all the way from your apartment
in Forty-Fourth Pt-reot to Broad  street
Bradley jerked  if oui  impatiently.
"It's absurd, anyway���������" he begun,
and paused suddenly. The drawer was
entirely empty.
With a cry of dismay .Morton leaned
forward, staring in blank amazement
at the empty drawer.
"1 puf it there!_____ Iic-criod-cxcitedlv.

Without ceremony he pushed Bradley aside, arid searched the little drawer
himself; then one by one he wont
through the empty pigeon holes, up til
every corner of the safe had been e.t
plorcd; bnt there was no trace of tha
ring ot of the box that had contained
"Why don't you look in the inner

"I couldn't have put il there,"
plied Morton. "1 gave Morton,
chief clerk, the key at tho time
netv sifes came laxl week."
Bradley rose abruptly.
"Knough of I his iiose.nse! " he
claimed shaiply, "Y should send
to the penitentiary. It is where
belong. But because of your long
service and good record I will give you
n chance,
"It is now ton o'clock. Return
that money to me before noon, and you
can go free. But. don't imagine, you
can escape!" he roared, his anger getting fhe better of him. "If you are
not. hern on the stroke of noon,
police of every city in the world
have vour description in an hour,
Morton glanced appealing)}' at Vaine,
but the junior partner was viciously
gawniag his moustache and staring out
of Ihe window, a puzzled frown furrowing his forehead,
Without a word, Morton turned and
left the room.
To Itamsay Morton It seomed that the
end of the world had come, He could
not realize fully the horror of the position he found himself placed, in. His
mind, as ho entered tho elevator at; the
twentieth floor of the groat Ajax
Building, and was shot down to the
roaring street, refused to grasp any
fact save that, he was passing that
way possibly for tho last' time.
He walked rapidly through the arched marble arcade, mechanically return-,
remembered, with a thrill, how in his
youth, bo.foie his father's failure and
death, and his mother's comparative
poverty condemned him to a life of
little more than oflice routine, hc looked
to a career among the men who do.
His youthful spirit had leaped at the
thought of the'groat world's contest
of will and wits. He had pictured
himself a statesman, a diplomat, a,captain of finance���������anything that meant
strife and life. - ,     -       ���������
But uwhen his freedom had finally
come, with the death of his mother,
all such dreams had faded to a dim,
.delightful half ' humorous memory,
Habit had hini in itsiron grip," arid only
the electric-/shock of a great, catastrophe  could   overcome  his  inertia.
^He had-received .t he shock,' He was
awake���������alive, again..at .last���������arid now
for the fight! Now to defend - his
honor, and as a corollary to that to
solve the double mystery of the dis7-
appearance of the cash and ring.
- Morton rose,-.-"and, with head held
high, and a swinging stride, left the
church and walked straight to the Ajax
Building. Be did not, pause in the.
outer oflice.
Past the staring clerks aud other employees,' to whom some tumors- of
trouble had drifted from the inner
sanctum, he went. Yn his own room
he paused for a.moment at his desk,
and then proceeded to the_office of the
senior partner.
The three members of the firm were
still in conference, and they looked
np as Morton entered. Bradley and
Cathcart with frowning brows, Vaine
with an eager hopefulness.
"Well," growled Bradley, "have
you brought the money?"
" L   have    not,"    returned
quietly.-      "'1   do   not,   intenr
.y.our���������silfliu-o���������;ii���������i.he^pri ce^o i'���������al 144
world.       Such   an   act,  iu
sudden vehemence, "you can't make a
fool of me, young man. Vou are ������
thief, Eaiiisey Morton���������;'
He stopped short, as the door leading to the outer office- was suddenly
thrown open and a white-faced girl
pushed her way in, despite the efforts
of a  uniformed  ollice-boy.
" What does this mean?" she cried
indignantly. "Who says Kamsoy Morion is a thief? Sidney Vaine, my
brother Jack Ramsey got you out of
trouble .with Walden; you ought to be
ashamed to let any one say such u
thing I Rum.oy, tell me what, il
means!" .
"It means, Virginia, that a hot-tempered old gentieinaii is making a mistake he will regret some day.'' replied
Morton calmly, as he drew her into
the room and abruptly closed the door.
"It was Mr. Bradley who ealled me
a thief," ho went on. "lie says .1
came down here Saturday afternoon
and stole fifty thousand dollars from
his safe."
"Why���������why, you weren't here Saturday!" cried the girl. "I was here
at four o'clock, and���������"
"Vou wore here!" exclaimed Morion   in   surprise.
"Yes. Mama telegraphed mc she
was ill, and to come on at once; and [
sent a message <o you. Then, before
I could get ready to leave, sho telegraphed again that she was better and
had decided to come home, and for me
to get Cousin Sidney and meet her on
thc Jersey side of thc ferry at five
o'clock, and by that time I was so confused and worried I forgot, it was Saturday and came down -here for hini,
but the men said you'd all gone at noon
and wouldn't bo back."

We have  Earl Jr., Winner of Record Pacing  Race, in Pink of Condition at Enderby  It was somewhat of an experiment  on the part of Mr. P. H.

But Mr. Murphy is not sorry he took  thc risk. Since arriving in Enderby  the great' pacer has improved in  general condition, and Mr. Murphy  says he is now as fit as they make  them.     The great grey is kept at Mr.  and he was installed  the   betting,   selling  for  troit last week  favorite in  ?200 in pools ranging in size from  $400 up to $500. Earl Jr. was second  choice at $125, Ess H. Kay third at  $40. The race was a stern battle before it was finished. Major Mallow  drew the pole, with Ess H. Kay in  second place, Evelyn 'W. third, Independences-Boy fourth, The Eel fifth,  The Abbe sixth,* and Earl Jr. seventh. At the word The Eel stepped  off in front, with The Abbe and Major  marched up to the three-q'uarter pole,  where Independence Boy showed to  the front, but Cox was right there  with Earl Jr., and he set sail for Independence Boy and made the pace so  hot for him that Independence Boy  went to a break inside the short distance and Earl Jr. won eased up in  2.02.V, with The Eel in second place.  "The third heat was raced in about  the same way, Major Mallow leading  thc bunch past the three-quarters,  with Independence Boy in second position, and Earl Jr. trailing the  leaders, but when it came to the  stretch drive Earl Jr. \vas too  strong, overhauling Independence Boy  on cut at all times,  and our aim is to  give good service.

Flis letter  follows:  "Our oiled track has filled ewry requirement, aud has moro than met our  highest expectations. Our soil, being  a dark brown loam, seemed to take  kindly to the smooth advances of the  oil. and mixed readily, leaving a most  beautiful cushion that neither wind nor  rain can carry away. In dry. hot  weather without the use of oil it is a  most difficult task to iclain a cushion  for any length of time, more especially  so, if there should be much wind, and  in wet weather without thc oil heavy  showers have repeatedly carried .������������������������������������������������������our  cushion away, and especially on tuo  turns.

"'In buying crude oil at that  price'  it was  necessary  for us to order  it   iu  tank cars.  "Thc total cost for oiling a half-mile  track 50 feet in width aii told should  not exceed $00.00 and should last a  full season. The second season 's oiling would  not  require as much  oil.

TKE SNAKE FIGHTER  A creature that has always been ex  fremely interesting, because bo never  fears to attack the most veiioinoiif-  suake, ond can do this apparently with  impunity, is thc mongoos, a kind of  ichueinon inhabiting northern Africa  and India. The people of India have  a superstitious regard for this little  fellow, because he not only does them  excellent service, but seems to them  to lead a charmed life. The ancient  Egyptians went further si ill, and gave  the mongoos divine honors.  Nevertheless (he creature's accomplishment is a perfectly natural one.  The mongoos is not proof against ser-  jjcut poison any moro than any other  animal.  RELIEF IS QUICK;  BUT CUBE IS SURE  Napoleon Voilloneourt Speaks of Dodd's  Kidney Pills.

A snake always calculates its blow so  thai its fangs'shall reach the object  aimed at. Its aim is generally good;  hut when the mongoos attacks a snake,  it doets so wit, al! its loug, thick fur on  end, so that it looks twice as large as  it really is. The snake is decoived,  and when il strikes miscalculates by an  inch at least, and  discharges  its venom  itself   harmlessly   in   the   animal's   fur,  Wheu a snake has struck a few times  its venom is exhausted and its bite  becomes harmless. Jf a fresh cobra  wen: to bite four persons who wore in  equally good health, one after thc i ���������������������������-,  the linn'would certainly die, the second  might or might not lecover, the third  and fourth would recover. In tho"case  of the mongoos, if fhe fresh snake  act mil! v succeeds in biting its nose or  anv other part of its skin it would die  as'quickly  as  any  other creature.  Put after thc ending of a lively  scrimmage., in which the mongoos has  goaded fhe snake into biting at him  not only once but a score of times, he  mav allow the snake to bite his noso  with impunity, for its fangs are no  longer venomous.

She had  lo bo extremely- rich, and was likewise  iia aloof and well-nigh forbidding -g-  lire.  Today Mrs. Green lias a wide host of  sisters, not precisely kin iu extent of  hunk-account, but close enough to snare  iii the shifting fortune of that fascinating domain known as the money world.  The woman has become a factor to be  reckoned with in the field of couversa  tive investment,. Despite hor so-called  emancipation in various directions, she  still, prefers the ties of the purse.  This feminine ascondeucy in a field  hitliorto regarded as strictly masculiuo  did not develop overnight. It is , the  result of a long and expensive novitiate.  When you stop to consider,that woman  is by temperament and instinct a born  speculator, you soon realize how and  why she has beou for yours tlie prey  of the gullible promoter and the. beguiling "get-rich-quick" artist.

She Is williug to take  a chance whon tho prospects for a big  profit dangle alluringly before her. but  whon the market breaks-aud things go  to smash, she does'not always understand tho reason .why.  Hence mauy big brokerage houses  discourage women's speculative accounts. When, a woman loses on a  speculative venture she takes it sackly  to heart. More than one broker who  had. to eurry, a woman's account, for  family or busness reasons has made  losses'good-rather than face'a >scone  witb the customer.  Most people of our generation havo  forgotten;, that Wall Street once had a  - firm of women brokers. It was , the  spectacular combination known as  Woodhnll, Clafai & Co., and it was backed by "Commodore" Vanderbilt. "It  lorft a good deal more .than it made, and  about the most permanent thing that it  achieved was a tradition of the Street.

He bought  a thousand shores of stock, planning  to clean up the price on an expected  rise in the security. But a panic came  along and knocked his plans into a  heap. Ho sold lhc stock at n loss of  sM^OOO. He still hud to buy the necklace, so that it finally cost him $50,000.  Another broker once took somo women friends to luuchcon. He thought  he knew tho market, and said he would  pay the check by buying'fifty shares  of Amalgamated Copper. During the  meal there was a flurry iu tho market,  and the luncheon cost him exactly $400.  Woman's idea of tbe "tip" is closely akin to hor conception of yield.

"I have some iiiBurunce in invest,"  she said.  "How much return do you expeet?''  asked the banker.  ��������������������������� "About twenty-live per eont," she  answered naively. "Vou see, I haven't  tiiiicii moucv and I must ������������������(������������������t a lot on  it."  This desire to "get ft lot on if." ims  led most women to their tinancial un  doing. They do not realize Miat the  greater the return promised, the largei  is the degree of risk that the tui>n������������������;y  employed assumes.  This woman's answer is full distcr  to that oft-repeated incident concerning the woman with her first bank-account. One day she called at the bauk  and was informed by the cashier that  her account was overdrawn.  "Oh; that's all right." she replied,  as she produced her check-book. "I  have a good many blank checks loft,  and I'll give vou one for lhe overdraft."  But you must not get the notion that  all women got their fingers scorched in  the stock-market. A few have displayed rare judgment and discrimination.  Mrs. Hetty* Greeu, for example, yields  to few in the Street in knowledge, of  financial conditions and astuteness of  purchase. In fact, she has a broader  grasp of money affairs than most men.  At one time she was one of the largest owners of Louisville and Nashville  stock. Of late years she has only dealt  in high-class bank and trust stocks and  devoted most of her money and attention to bonds and mortgages. Herein  she displayed sound .investment, sense.  Her strong boxes today arc packed  with securities that are practically immune, from the ravages of panic and depression.  The late Mrs. Thomas , W. J.awson  had a remarkable knowledge of thc  stock-market, ��������������������������� and ber. judgment was  almost" uncanny. It is said "that-the  celebrated ��������������������������� sponsor of "frenzied finance" never undertook a great'stock  exploitation campaign without hor advice and often, her co-operation7Many,  pooplo have noted that hc has not  launched any vast speculative outer-  priscs since her death.  One of'the shrewdest business women  in tho United States is Mrs. Frederic  C.',lJenficld,'who is the daughter of, thc  late '^William Woightman^ the, "Quinin  King"-of Philadelphia. She not only-  inherited the control of a great', business; but the charge of a ramified financial- trust. -.While -most" of Jthe- money  was "employed - in.-"ground;.rents,T"5a  favorite^"1 Pennsylvania -_ real; estate, ��������������������������� in":  vestment, -there-was a'-good -deal in  stocks.and bonds,, and her.jstrong, sane  administration " of affairs ;baa "greatly,  enhanced the valnc'of.the"estate,' kike  Mrs. Green; she has shown-a man/a.-firm.,  and discriminating grasp of.-" large  affairs.

IL Karri-  man is., administered by trustees who  have ample financial knowledge, both  take'^no small part in the-employment  of their surplus incomes. The same is  true,of Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt,' Sr.,'  Miss Helen Gould, Mrs. Marshall Field,  Mrs. Irfjvi Loiter,, and ..Mrs. Collis. V.  Huntington. ' ,  But wliat of, the average woman aud  her money? She" has no large" inheritance with which to bulwark her declining years; no shrewd or far-seeing  trustee to guide and direct hor funds  into the pleufifmt paths of profit. Vet  it is this very woman���������������������������more often thc  Before the panic of 1907 the Pennsylvania had 40,000 stockholders. After  tho smoko of the disaster cleared awav  it had 59.000. Of this growth of 10J-  OOO'more than -aIf wore women. Behind this statement is an investment,  fact of importance to overy one who  has or expects lo have money to invest.  The fact is that the public is getting  away from the time-honored Wall  Street tradition, buy when stocks are  high, and sell when thoy are low. This  precedent, once established, will do  much toward safeguarding the people's  savings. Arid the interesting part, of  if all is thai woman is helping to do it.  The Pennsylvania is only one of the  many great' American railroads wilh  hosts of women stockholders. Second  iu this respect ranks the Illinois Con-,  tral, one-third of whose stock is in female hands.  Two other great systems that have  many women stockholders are the Croat  itoithcru and'the Heading. Vou will  also find a large amount of Louisville  and Nushs'illo. Southern Pacific, New  York Central and Baltimore and Ohio  held by the sex which is commonly regarded as having uo business sense.  When you come to'the great industrial corporations, there is a strong  temptation to take advantage of a very  striking fact. It develops that one-  half of the stock in the Sugar Trust,  otherwise the, American Sugar Refining  Company, is owned by women. Therefore the logical conclusion would .be  that "like seeks like." v Tt is interest-  widow aud the .wage-earner���������������������������who contributes to'the great host.ofr small.and  conservative investois, which is the  backbone anil substance of the whole  nation's finmicial strength.  Thc entry ot the average woman tuto  the conservative field is one of the biggest facts in present-day finance. The  facts are impressive. There aro more  than two million stockholders in the  various corporations of the United  States, aud of this number more than  one-third, approximately eight hundred  thousand, are women. When you in-  elude the women who have savings and  other accounts and who pay premiums  on - life- insurance,- you -find -that -the  total number who hnvo money working  for them���������������������������and investment simply means  making your money work for you���������������������������is  over seven millions.  Thus, while the jest nnd gibe, are at  the expense of the woman who speculates in. Wall Street, the profit and  competency rest with those who refuse  to bo 'dazzled by promise, of impossible  profit aud are content with smaller ,md  assured returns.  Formerly if was considered unusual  for a railroad or, in fact, for any corporation, to have a large number of  women stockholders, but at thc present  time it is a very common matter. There  are more than a dozen in which the  women -almost outnumber the men. and  the list is growing all thc time.  Take the great United States Sled  Corporation, which has more than one  hundred thousand stockholders, Although it is almost impossible to get  the exact proportion, the officials of  that company sny that practically half  of the stockholders, in point of number,  are women.  Among the railroads the Pennsylvania  heads the list, for it has exactly  32,293 women stockholders, or forty-  seven per cent, of the total number.  Tue Pennsylvania was one nf the original "women" companies. Foi years  they have been strong ou the stock.  Bach year has witnessed an increase in  their holdings. So, between May 1st,  1910,' and May. 1st, 1911, the number  of women stock holders gained. 1!t,3ld.  ing, in this connection, to add that  many women preacheis aud doctors are  included in' this list.  The Standard Oil stock has many  women owners. Tho general impression  "that this stock is closely held by the  Rockefellers and their original allies  is very'much" mistaken. John L). and  his fellow patriots have more thau six  thousand partners in their vast monopoly.  So fur 1 have only spoken of the  ownership of stocks by women. When  you . turn to bonds you find a much  bigger -field. Most of the women who  own stock also have bonds. They go  on the i very wise theory that no" one  who must invest for income should buy  stocks until they have K nost-egg of  solid, seasoned bonds.  .. No matter how gilt.edged a stock is,  there ' eomes'.'a ' time ' when "it -'fe'els .'a"  market 'depression.. It may he ,y'ery  slight, but most women cannot ��������������������������� understand these - temporary fluctuations.  They get uervous arid upset, and unless  strongly advised, are apt to sell out a������������������  a loss at the first flurry.. Hence bonds  should be the cornerstone of all investment by women.  When you' come to examine the bond  holdings of cautious .women 'investois'.  you,discover, that-they-have tbe seeuii.-  ties of-.the-time-tried-railroads, whose  bo'jfds. are, legal foi..savings-bank invest-  nients;'in"-states'_>like"New ���������������������������'.7ork,".I\ew  ���������������������������I orsey ,-CoiYnecti cu t- and - Ma ssa'c h u setts!

Thus has' she reached  man's estate.    . r   ������������������*'   .  . In .considering, the woman,.investor  you must not forget that she plays a  big part in the savings.bauk structure  of the country. Of the 9,142,000 savings-bank- depositors in the United  States more than fifty per cent, are  women. This _ shows that thoy. are  thriftier, in terms of actual dollars and  cents, than men. ' '  In N"ew Vork, where I here are nearly  three million depositors in the saviugs-  liantcs^   the   percentage   of  make a big strike there were ample  means with which to seize the glittering  moment.  The. inroads That women have madp  in the straight investment field have a  larger significance thau mere sate employment of funds. They emphasize  the big fact that safe, and assured incomes of four, tive, and five aud ouo-  luVlf per cent, are better in the long  run than one "come-on" dividend of  ten or fifteen per cent, followed by the  wiping out of all capital imesteJ.  They help, in short; to make tho woman  immune against thc allurements of the  smooth-tongued hawker of "as good a.s  Hell Telephone" industrial stock and  all those othor nefarious separators of  j> ople and tbeir money.  A wide ownership,of its stock spells  large content and peace of mind for  the corporation, lt means that the uis  criminating investor has made���������������������������as ho or  she should make whenever money is  employed���������������������������a careful investigation of  the company, including an examination  of its earning capacity over a considerable period of years/ its real assets and  its place iu competition. If there had  been a wider distribution of tbe securities of our great, railroads and industrial enterprises, there would have boon  much, less corporation baiting during  the la'st'''ten years,  livery woman who invests in a gilt-  edged stock or a seasoned bond adds  one more rivet to the financial armor  of the country, and thereby strengthens our national credit. As France  has proved so admirably; tho sum of  small investors set up the real mon yed  .bulwark of the land.  ./'  women Oe7  positors is even greater. Tu New Vork  city this is due to the fact, .that among  tho Germans and Italians, who'compriso  a big bulK of the depositor, the accounts are in the name of the wife,  who is the financial head of the family.  One reason why the woman has entrenched herself so strongly in the investment field is that she learned to  look upon the savings-bank as the tuisis  of-a-competency.

Your money works while you  sleep.  Benjamin Franklin once said:  "Money makes money, and the money  that money makes makes more money."  This is the keynote to all wealth. When  you analyze the sources of tho great  fortunes of the world, almost without  exception you learn that this simple  axiom lay at the bottom of the golden'  heap.   ^  There is uo witchery or cunning  about lhe amassing of riches.

"On thc other hand, there is the fact  that at present the light explotuves  which aerial machines'would be able  to drop would have very little penetrating or destructive power; tho machines would generally have to descend within rifle range if they were  to be of any practical use; while the  difficulties in the way of hitting anything from a moving platform in the  air, at an unknown distance from the.  target, may bo imagined,"  height, six miles uortkwest of NabUm,  othorwise known as Shcchern, and  about twenty miles from the Mediterranean Sea. The mount is covered with  orchards of olives, figs and pomegranates.  The first that is known of this hill  in history is when it was bought, about  900 B.C., by. Omri, who built a town  called Shomeron, afterwards known as  Samaria. There Ahah, the son of Omri,  built a temple of Baal, and also an  ivory palace, in the ivory palace hc  ruled the northern kingdom down to  728 B.C.���������������������������as see the accounts in the'  Book  of Kings in the Old Testament.  When Sargon captured Shomeron  (Samaria) he took away 27,000 people  into captivity. The population he left  in the city was put under the reign of  an Assyrian Governor, and thc city  was colonized by Sargon and1 Esarhftd-  don with Babylonians in piaee of thc  exiled Israelites. The next conqueror  of Samaria was Alexander the Great.  The place continued to be occupied  clear on down to the time of Herod.  Ho rebuilt and "improved" the city  and- named it Sebaate. Thin was just  before the birth of Christ.  Herod had a passion for building  cities, aad he literally dotted the landscape of his time with temples and  palaces, lie was notoriously cruel and  was poor , pay.
