The Spring assizes were opened in  Vernon last week, and already the  criminal docket, the largest ever  heard at Vernon, has been pretty  well disposed of. Two murderers had  a hearing, and in each case conviction in the first degree was the result  and the death sentence passed. McDougall, a half-breed, was the'first  to be -tried. He was sentenced to be  hanged for the killing of his cousin  in a drunken row some months ago  on Okanagan lake. James, the murderer of Constable Ashton, was the  next to receive a similar sentence  from Chief Justice Hunter. Milo  Roberts was given twelve years for  the attempted hold-up of the Lumby  bank some weeks ago; and a Chinaman was sentenced to nine months  for attempting   to    bribe an  officer.  water  nor rations.

ENDERBY PRESS AND  WALKER'S WEEKLY  ONE WAY OUT  B$ WILLIAM CARLETON  Copyright, 1911  [By Small, Maynard & Co., Inc.  B  was  and  CHAPTER XIII.���������������������������(Continued)  I   Become   a   Citizen  UT as for Dick,  he was too busy  wilh  his studies, and Ruth  loo   glad    to   sit   al    home  watch him, to go out at night.  What spare time I myself had 1  began to devote to a new interest.  KalTerty had first roused ine to my  duty as a citizen in the matter of  local politics and through the winter  called often enough to keep my interest whened. But even without him  1 cunldn't have escaped the question.  Politics was a live issue down here  overy clay in the year. One campaign  was no sooner ended than another  was begun. Sweeney was no sooner^  elected than he began to lay wires for  his fellows in ihe coming city election,  who in their turn would sustain him  in whatever further political ambitions  he might have. JC the hold the boss  had on a ward or a city was a mystery to me at first, it didn't long remain so. The secret of his power lay  in the fact that he never let go. He  was at work every day in ihe year and  he had an organization with which he  could keep in touch through his lieutenants whether he was in Washington or at home. Sweeney's personality  was always right there in his ward  wherever his body might he.  The Sweeney Club rooms were always , open. Night after night you  could find his trusted men there. Here  ' the man out of a job came and from  here was recommended to one contractor -'or another or to the "city";  here the man with the sick wife came  to have her sent to some hospital,  which perhaps for'some reason would  not ordinarily receive her; here the  men in court sent their friends for bail;  here came those with bigger plans  afoot in the matter of special contracts. If Sweeney couldn't get them  what they wanted, he at least sent  thom away with a feeling of deep obligation to him. -Naturally, then, when  election time came around these people obeyed Sweeney's order. It wasn't reasonable to suppose that a campaign speech or two could affect their  loyalty.  Of course the rival party followed  "much the same methods, but the man  in power had tremendous advantage.  The only danger he needed to fear  was a split in his,own faction as some  young" man loomed up with ambitions  that moved faster than Sweeney's own  - for- him. " Such -a man _ 1 -began^ to  suspect���������������������������though it was looking a long  way into the future���������������������������was. Rafferty.  That winter-he took out his naturalization papers and soon afterwards he  began an active campaign for the  Common Council. - It was partly'my  interest in him and partly a new sense  of duty I felt towards the whole game  that made me resolve to have a hand  in this. I owed that much to the  ward in which I lived and which was  doing so much for me.  In talking with some of the active  settlement workers down here, I found  "them as.strongly prejudiced against  the party in power as I had been ancl  when I spoke to them of Rafferty I  found him damned in> their eyes as  soon as. I mentioned his party.  "The whole system is corrupt from  top to bottom," said the head of one  settlement house to me.  - "Are you doing anything to remedy  it?" I asked.  "What can you do?" he said.      "We  are   doing   the   only   thing   possible���������������������������  we're trying to get hold of the youngsters and give them a higher sense of  ._civic_vir.tue.'J I ���������������������������   in   either  the  is a  is a  good  good  good  "That's good," I said, "but you don't  get hold of one in ten of the coming  voters. And you don't get hold of  one in a hundred of the coming politicians. Why don't you take hold of  a pian like Dan who is bound to get  power some clay and talk a little civic  virtue into him."

A good  Democrat  citizen and a good machine  power," I said.  The man smiled.  "You don't know," he said.  "Do **uu   know?"   I   asked.       ''rlave  you   been   to   the   rallies  and   met   the  men   and   studied   their  methods?"  "All you have to do is to read the  papers," he answered.  "I don't think so," I said.     "To beat  an enemy you ought to study him first  hand.       Vou   ought   tn   find   out   the  good as well as ihe bad in  him.    You  ought   to   find  out  where  he  gets  his  power."  "Graft and patronage," he answered.  "What about the other party?" 1 said.  "Just as bad."  "Thon what aro you going to do  about it?" 1 asked.  "Our only hope is education," he  said.  "Then," I said, "why not educate the  young politicians? Get to know Rafferty���������������������������he's young ancl simple and honest now. Help -him to advance honestly and  keep him  that  way."  He shook his head doubtfully, but  he agreed to have a talk with Dan.  In the meanwhile I had a talk with Dan  myself. I told him what my schemo  was.  "Dan." I said, "you must decide  right at the bogilining of your onrepr  whether   you're   going   to   be   just   a  tool  of   Sweeney's  or  whether" you're  going to stand on your own feet."  "Phot's the mather with Sweeney,  now?" he asked.  "in some way he's all right," I said.  "And in other ways he isn't. But  anyhow he's your boss and you have  to do what he tells you to do just as  though he was your landlord back in  Ireland and you nothing but a "tenant."  "Eh?" he said,  looking up quick.  I thought I'd strike a sore spot there  and I made the most of it.     I talked  along like  this for a half hour and I  saw his lips come together.  "He'd knife me," he said finally. "He's  sore now 'cause I'm afthcr wantln' to  run for thc council this year."  1 had heard the rumor.  "Then,"' 1 said, "why don't you pull  free and make a little machine of your  own. Some of the boys will stand  by you, won't they?"  "Will ihey?" he grinned.  With that I took him around to the  settlement house. Dan listened good  naturedly to a lot of talk he didn't  understand, but he listened with more  interest to a lot of talk about the  needs of the district which it was now  getting cheated out of, which he did  understand. And incidentally the man  who at first did all the talking, in  the end listened to Dan. After the  latter had gone, he turned to me ancl  said:  "I like that fellow Rafferty."  That seemed to me the really important thing and right there and then  we sat down and worked out the basis  of the "Young American Political  Club." "Our object was to reach the  young voter first of all and through  him to reach the (older ones. To this  end we had a "Committee on Boys"  and a "Committee on Naturalization."  J insisted from the beginning- that we  must have an organization as parfect  as that of any political machine. Until we felt our strength a little, ^however. I suggested it was best to limit  our efforts to the.districts alone. -Wc  took a map of the city and we cut up  the districts into blocks with a young  man at the head of each block. lie  was to make a list of all the young  voters and keep as closely in touch as  possible with the political gossip of  both parties. Over him there was to  be a street captain and over him a  district captain and- finally a president.    - Q  All this was the'result of slow and  careful study.. All .the workers down  here fell in with the plan eagerly and  one of them agreed to., pay the expenses of a hall any time we wished to  use one for campaign purposes. At  first our' efforts passed unnoticed by  either political party. It was thought  to be just another fanciful civic  dream. We were glad of it. It gave  us time to perfect our organization  without interference.  This business took up all the time  I could spare during thc winter. But  instead of finding it a drag 1 found  it an inspiration. They insisted upon making me president of the club,  and though 1 would rather have"' had  a younger man at its'head I accepted  the honor with a feeling of some  pride. It was the first public office I  had ever held and it gave me a new  sense of responsibility and a better  sense of citizenship.  In the meanwhile Dan made no open  break with Sweeney but it soon became clear that he was not in such  good favor as before. Although we  had not yet openly endorsed his candidacy we were doing a good deal of  talking for him. J received several  visits, from-Sweenev-'S-lioutenantS-Who.  tried to find out just what we were  about. My answer invariably was  "No  partisanship   but clean  politics."  When if came time to register I  was forced to register with one of thc  two parties in order to take any part  in the primaries. 1 registered as a  Democrat for the first time in my  life. I also attended a primary for  the first time in my life. 1 also felt a  new power back of me for the first  time in my lifer" " ~ " ~" "  Little by little Dan had come to be  an issue. Sweeney did not openly declare himself, but it was soon e\ idem  that he had come to the primaries  prepared  to  knife  Rafferty  if it were  and announced this to Ruth, she cried  a little. Truly our cup seemed full  and running over.  CHAPTER XIV.  Fifteen Dollars a Week  My first thought when I received my  advance in pay was that 1 could now  relieve Ruth of some of her burdens.  There was no longer any need of her  spending so -much time in trotting  around the markets and the department stores. Nor was there any need  of her doing so much plotting and  planning in her endeavor to save a  penny. Futhermore, I was determined  that she should now enjoy some of  the little luxuries of life in the way  of better -things to wear and better  things to eat. But the idea wras taken  out of me in short order.  "No," she said, as soon as she recovered from the good news. "We  mustn't spend one cent more than  we've been spending."  "But look here," I said; "what's the  good of a raise if we don't use it?"  "What's the good of a raise if we  spend it?" she asked me. '"We'll use  it, Billy, but we'll use it wisely. How  many times have you told me that if  yon had your life to live over again  you wouldn't spend one cent over the  first salary you received, if it was only  three dollars a week, until you had a  bank account?"  ,, "I know that," I said. "But when  a man has a wife aiid boy .like you  and Dick���������������������������"  "He doesn't want to turn them into  burdens that will hold him down all  his life," she broke in. "It isn't fair  to the wife, and boy," she said.  T couldn't quite follow her reasoning, but 1 didn't have to. When I  came home the next Saturday night  with fifteen dollars in my pocket instead of nine she calmly took out three  for the rent, five for household expenses arid put seven in the ginger  jar. I suggested that at least we  have one celebration and with tho boy  go to the little French restaurant we  used to visit, but she held up her  hands in horror.  "Do you think I'd spend two dollars  and a half for���������������������������why, .Billy, you wouldn't!"  "I'd like to spend ten,"'! said. "I'd  like to go' there to dinner and buy you  a half dozen roses-and get the three  Lest seats in the best theatre in town."  I said.  She came to my side and patted my  arm...-    . - - ---_ : - -       " -��������������������������� - _  "Thank you, Billy," she said. "But  honest���������������������������it's just as much fun to have  you want to do those things as really  do them."  - 1  believe she meant  believe   it  of "anyone  week she talked about  those   flowers   and   the  she  had   me  wondering  it. L wouldn't  else, but for a  that dinner and  theatre until  if   we  hadn't  For those interested in the details  I'm going . to give another .quotation'  from Ruth's note book. But to my  mind tacse details aren't the important  part of our venture. The thing that  counted was the spirit back of them.  It isn't the fact that we lived on from  six to eight dollars a week or the statistics of how we lived on that which  makes my- life worth telling about, if it  is worth telling about. In the first  place prices vary in different localities  and shift from year to. year". ��������������������������� Tn fact,  since we began they have almost  doubled. In the second place, people  have lived and are living today on  less than we did. 1 give our figures  simply to satisfy the curious and to  show how Ruth planned. J^ut no one  could do as she did or do as we did  merely by aping her little economics,  or accepting'the result of them. Either  they would find the task impossible or  lookuipon it as a privation and endur^  it as martyrs. In this mnod they  wouldn r last a week. I know thai  people who read Ibis without at least  a germ of the pioneer in them will  either smile or shrug their shoulders  I've met plenty of this sort. I met  them' by the dozen down here. As 1  said, you can find them in every bread  line. Mn every Salvation Army barracks or thc Associated Charities will  furnish you a list of as many as you  want. You'll find them in the suburbs  or you'll find them marching in line  the next time (hero is a procession of  the unemployed.  But give me true pioneers such as  our own forefathers were, such ns fhe  young men out West are today, such as  every .steamer lands here by thc hundreds from foreign countries every  week, and 1 say you can't down that  kind, you can't kill them. I'don't say  that it's right to raise the price of  necessities. 1 don't think if is, though  I "'don't know much about it. But I  do say that if you double the cost of  food stuffs and then double it again,  thrugh you may cruelly starve out the  weaklings, you'll find ihe pioneers still  on their feet,* still fighting.  It seems strange lo rne that men will  go to Alaska and contentedly freeze  and dig all day in a mine���������������������������not of their  own, but for wages���������������������������and not feel so  greatly abused or unhappy; that they  will swing an axe all day in a forest  ancl live on baked beans and bread  without feeling like martyrs; that they  will go to sea and grub on hard tack  aiid salt pork and fish without complaint and then will turn Anarchists  on the same fare in the East. It seems  strange too that these men keep strong  and healthy, and that our ancestors  kept strong and healthy on oven a  still. simpler diet.',- "Why, my father  fought battles-rand'the mental strain  must have been terrific���������������������������and did more  actual labor, every day in carrying a  rifle and marching than I do in a week,  and slept but doors undeiva blanket���������������������������  .all on a- diet "that" the average "tramp  of today7would spurn.

And so, just as usual, after this  .she'd take her basket and start out  two or three mornings a week and walk  with me as far as the market. She'd  spend an hour' here and then if she  needed anything more she'd go down  town .to thc big stores and wander  a-ro'und hero for another hour. But  Saturday nights was her great bargain  opportunity. If lt couldn't go with her  she'd take - Dick and the two would  plan to get^there at about nine o'clock.  From this time on she -often picked  up for a song odd ends of meat and  good vegetables which the market  men didn'l'wanl to carry over to Monday. In fact, they had to sell out  these things as their stock at the be-  pglnning^of���������������������������flici=.w-eelv=,had^to^b'e=,fresh.^  J suppose marketing at this lime of  day would be a good deal of a hardship for those living in the suburbs,  but   it   was   a   regular   lark   for   her.  possible. Back of Dan stood his large  personal following; back of me stood  the balance of power. Sweeney saw  it, gave the nod, and Dan was nominated.  Six weeks later lie was elected, too.  You'd have thought he had been elected mayor by the noise the small boys  made. Rafferty came to me with his  big paw  outstretched.  "Carleton," he said, "the only thing  I've got agin ye is that ye ain't an  Irishmon. Faith, ye'd make a domn  foine Irishmon."  "It's up to you now," I said, "to  make a damned tine American."  It   wasn't   more   than   two     months  later that Dan came to me to ask my  opinion on a request of'Sweeney's.     It  looked a bit off color and I said so.  "You   can't   do   it,   Dan,"   I  said.  "It manes throublo," he said.  "Let   it  come.      We're  back  of you  with both feet."  Dan   followed   niy   advice   and     the  trouble   camo.       He   was   fired   from  hi.s job as  foreman  under Sweeney.  But you can't keep down as s.rood a  foreman as Dan was and he had anothor job within a  week.  A few months later I had another  i'lh myself. I was made foreman with  ���������������������������ny own firm nt a w.-i'.ro of two dnllai"-*  and a half a clay.      When I went bad.*  Most everyone is good natu red on Saturday night if on no other night. The  week's work is done and people have  enough money from their pay envelopes  to feel rich for a few hours anyway.  Then there were the lights and the  crowd and the shouting so that it was  like' twenty' country "fairs rolled' into"  one.  After the excitement of coming home  Saturdays with so much money wore  off, 1 began io forget that 1 was earning fifteen instead of nine. If Ruth  had spent it on the table I'm sure I'd  have forgotten it even more quickly.  I was getting all 1 wanted to eat, was  warm and had a good clean bed to  sleep in. and what more can a man  have even if he's earning a hundred  a week? I think people are very apt  to forget that after all a millionaire  can ���������������������������ypr-ncl only about so much on himself. And after the newness of fresh  toys has worn off���������������������������like steam yachts  and private cars���������������������������he is forced to be  satisfied with just what T had, no matter how much more money he makes.  He has only his five senses, and once  these are satisfied he's no better off  than a man who satisfies these same  senses on eight dollars a week... Generally he's worse off because in a year  or so he has probably dulled them all.  Rockefeller himself probably never in  his life got half the fun out of anything that I did in just crawling into my clean bed at night with every  tired muscle purring contentedly and  my mind at rest about the next day.  I doubt if he knows the joy of waking   up   in   the   morning   rested   andf  HIBERNATION   OF   MOSQUITOES  Dr. Howard of the United States Department of Agriculture, who probaoly  knows- as much of. the mosquito and  its habits as any other man in the  world, contends th.afjthis 'cosmopolitan  pest does not necessarily perish with  the coming of winter. On the contrary, mosquitoes\havc been observed  to hibernate, adult specimens lhy/ig*  from November until the succeeding  April or May with all their powers'of  torment unimpaired, although their activity is suspended in winter. The  mosquito needs but little food and it  is the female that thirsts for blood,  the males contenting themselves with  water  and  vegetable  fluids.  The fact that mosquitoes are often  found upon dry prairies many miles  ���������������������������from-wat������������������i~is-asuribedHo=the-loiigevity-  of the adults of certain species which  enables them to survive seasons of  drought. Railroads have been responsible for the transmission of mosquitoes into regions where they were  previously rare.  of the finest steel, is of a size .large  enough to print a sheet of stamps,  numbering from two hundred to three  hundred, at a single impression. Great  pressure is brought to bear upon the  surface of this plate,-"once for each  stamp in the subsequent sheet; and  then the plate is hardened. It follows,  of course, that such impressions are  "negatives"and that the prints obtained, from them���������������������������the stamps themselves  ���������������������������are  "positives."  ���������������������������It should be stated at this point  that the reason .why printing is done  in this way. instead of from a single  die, lies in the fact that such enormous numbers of stamps arc required.  Then, too, the printing could not be  done from the roller, inasmuch as on  the roller the lines are in "relief," instead of being "incised." Furthermore, it would not be practicable to  employ several dies, or a great number of them engraved; the expense  would bc too great, and no two stamps  would   be  absolutely  alike.  When the workmen have obtained  three satisfactory printing-plates,,  these are fastened to the bed of a special kind of printing-press. Peculiar  care is exercised in the- process of inking. Upon the starting of the machinery, the first plate is inked and  wiped automatically until the plate  fairly shines. This wiping takes away  all the. ink except that which clings"  to thc lines of the two or three hundred engravings.  The printers Jay over, the plate a  sheet of dampened paper, a slight'degree of heat is applied to the plate in  order'that the ink may "swell," and'  then more pressure is applied. During all this time the second plate has  boon receiving its ink, and subsequently the third is brought into action, with  the result that, although all three plates  are on the same press, each one of them  is at a "given moment undergoing a  different process from its follows.  When the printed sheets have been  properly dried, they are sent to a  gumming-machine. Jn this they are  passed between a dry roller on one  side and a roller moistened with mucilage- on the other. From thc 'rollers  fhey emerge, wet side, up, on to an endless web that conveys them through  a steam-heated box.  Prom this box they reappear to -receive . the perforations, which are  made by passing lhe_,sheets between a  cylinder provided with steel pins and a  cylinder perforated with holes to'match  the pins.  Thc last step in the manufacture  of the stampjis the, pressing of the  sheets to overcome their tendency to  curl by reason of the mucilage used.  This pressing is accomplished by' hydraulic power.      ***  The stamps are now "ready for  thc  postmaster.  HARD  LINES  FOR  INVENTORS  .. Many, inventions were, at, first opposed tooth and "nail arid had to, make  their'way by degrees. In'.sbme parts  of. Europe forks were , considered a  useless luxury and sinful indulgence  and were for a long time under a ban  of the".*clerics. In "Germany the ordinary people, regarded the innovation  as absurd affectation, while the clerics  considered them 'an insult -to Provi--'  dence, who had given man wholesome  food which he ought not to be ashamed  to touch "with his fingers. In courtly  France, however, forks were a welcome  addition and speedily'became popular.  HOW   POSTAGE   STAMPS   ARE  MADE  The manufacture of postage stamps  involves" a_p"rdcess riot, altogether simple. There is much labor given to the  making* of Ihc little wafers with which  everybody is so familiar. The first  step toward thc production of the  stamp is, of course, the engraving of  the die with which it is printed. Only  steel of thc finest quality is used for  the purpose, and upon this thc engravers slowly and laboriously cut line  by line the portrait or the emblem  that the government has selected for  the particular stamp in hand.  Engravers call this die a "negative,"  for the reason that it is a reversal of  the design that the stamp will exhibit.  Upon the completion of tho die,  proofs are "pulled." Should these  prove satisfactory, tho die is then  hardened and fixed in the bed of a  press of great power. Then a steel  roller, whose circumference is several  times the diameter of the die, is passed  ,over it, immense pressure being.applied, so that every line cut on the  surface of the die may be impressed  upon that of the roller as many times  as the circumference of the roller is  larger than the area of the die. The  result is that there are reproduced on  the roller four perfect copies of the  die, but copies that are revised. Engravers  call   these  impressions   "posi-  BULGER   HAD THE  BUGLE  - Bulger, a Colorado town of 200 population, "was recently- moved eighteen'  miles..

The chief merit of the fairy  tale  is  that  it  keeps  alive the  sense  of wonder.   It is true that nature and  life    furnish    greater    wonders���������������������������that  truth   is   stranger   than   fiction.     The  story of Jack and the Beanstalk is not  so wonderful as the fact that a vine,,  with   leaves,  flowers,  and  beans,  may  be produced by simply burying a bean  in the ground;  that a rose or a great  oak  or pine may be produced in  the  same way.    "It is sown in corruption;  it is raised in incorruption.   It is sown  in dishonor; it is. raised in glory.   It is  sown   in    weakness;     it  is  raised   in  power."     Chesterton puts the truth in  his usual quaint and stimulating way  when he says that . a    tree produces  fruit because it is a magic tree; water  flows downhill -because it is bewitched;  the sun shines because it* is bewitched.  But the tendency of human nature Is  to believe that a thing is not-wonderful because it is common.    Hence the  imagination  reciuires to be stimulated  by myths and fairy tales.  133  ft'  I ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY

There were three hundred and sixty-

Nevertheless, Barak was not a Sultan; he was hageb���������-that is, upper
chamberlain���������at the court of the Sultan Mohammed. Re had -.come to
the country as embassador of the great
Mongolian kingdom, and the widow of
the late Sultan, yet young and pretty,
had given him the management of her
household, her son Mohammed being
still a child.
Barak's administration, was- good;
the army owed toohim, among other
reforms, the raising of the pay .of the
soldiers from three to four aspers.
The number three, Hageb claimed, was
holy, because there were three prophets.
One day the Grand Vizier, Darfur Aii,
visited the upright Hageb, and while
the two. drank coffee, the guest began:
"Truly, Barak Hageb, it is folly unworthy of.you to keep so many wives.
If it- was with us as the Franks, the
custom to give wives, you might then
be as rich as King Sapor; but here
you- must not only buy your .wife, but
must pay cash for her. Now you
have squandered a, great deal of gold j
for this purpose, and when your money
is spent, what have you? For the
cost of one wife,' you could keep a
hundred-soldiers."
Barak stroked his beard. "No" doubt,
but a hundred soldiers would not give
me as much pleasure as one pretty
wife." ',  '    ���������
To this Aii inwardly agreed. "But
the number."
"One should pick as 'many flowers as
he can  from  the world's garden,"  returned Barak.
,   "True enough, you have blonde and
brunette,  white  and   black,   blue-eyed
and gray-eyed women, yellow Chinese,
and brown Malay���������yes, and even those
women _\hat' color  their hair  red and

Allah! you have so many that you can

army, himself and his horse loaded
with precious stones. The sight of
them caused a glow of righteous pride
in every barefooted warrior who turn.-

the most costly delicacies, and the
thought that the Sultan fared sumptuously went far to cheer the hungry-
soldiers.
��������� Mohammed also had an enormous
standing army. As to its exact number history is" silent; but it is always
given as twice as many as the enemy's
force. The Grand Vizier Darfur Aii
was- appointed  commander.
The night before the first battle, one
of Barak's wives, the Jedibah of whom
we have already heard, prophesied that
.the neighboring kingdom would be destroyed; and Koxana, who also dabbled
in fortune-telling, predicted that on the
next day Sidi Achmed would die.'
These predictions wero made public
in the principal city, and there was; in
consequence universal enthusiasm.
Barak himself was firmly convinced
that both would be fulfilled; and he
and his entire following of women
occupied,^ the next day, a hill in the
neighborhood of the battlefield, in order to enjoy from that" coign of vantage the.amusing spectacle of the downfall of the enemy.'
The battle began early'in the morning, but it did not last long. In describing it'the historians again differ
widely. The Persian chronicle says
the army of Mohammed lost forty-five
thousand men, while "the enemy lqst
but three. Another writer stales that
the- army of Mohammed did not lose
a man, while the opponcnt���������'lost thirty-
three thousand. Perhaps in this ca'se,
also, the real truth lies half-way between the two statements." c All agree
that the army of Mohammed speedily
fully opened, for now everybody knew
that Sidi Achmed was a tyrant; while
Barak Hageb was praised as the liberator of the nation, and was finally asked to be its Sultan.
Barak Hageb assembled his wives
and said to them:
"Glorious women, I thank you for my
life. Yes, I have more to thank you
for: my fame and my. kingdom. Name,
then, the reward you' desire; I swear
by Allah to grant it."
Then came forward the smooth Zibella, and spoke:
"O great Sultan, we do, indeed, deserve a reward, for we have fought
for you like men. We ask nothing
small, therefore: we ask for freedom
and our desire is that all the women
in your kingdom shall he as free as
men."
Barak "l-Iageb was touched, very
much touched; he shed tears. Then
he said:
"You ask for something unheard of���������-
something that has never yet been.
Yet it must be, for I have sworn. In
Kermau, from this time forth, woman
is as free as man and the wives of
Barak I-Iageb may proclaim that they
have gained this freedom by their own
personal efforts."
And   so  the  new   Sultan     won   the
hearts of his people, and even  in the
neighboring realms his fame increased.
All, the  Sultans  around  claimed  his
friendship and  solicited  his kinship.
The makers of marriages besieged
his house; even the Sultan Mohammed,
at whose court Barak had once been
ambassador, offered him sisters'-and
cousins.
To him Barak replied: "1 choose
neither your sisters, nor yet your cousins, for,. I want 'not frivolity, but
rather������wisdom. If you really desire
to be kinsman of mine, give me for
wife���������your mother."
And sojt happened. .
After having had three hundred and
sixty-five wives, he contented himself
with one, and found it enough.

"Good, good," interrupted the Grand
Vizier. ' He had kept.count, first on

feared his friend would keep on fill

lest some day you discover an infamous
one."
Whether the Grand Vizier was right
or not, the following story will show.
The Sultan of Kermau, Sidi .Achmed,
hearing Mohammed's people were discontented, decided to liberate them
from their oppression. To alleviate
the sufferings of his neighbors has always been a labor of love to Oriental
rulers.
Sidi Achmed commanded an immense army. Some Persian historians
say he had ten thousand soldiers; others insist that he had ono hundred
thousand; the truth ' probably lay
somewhere between the two. Certain
it is that he had three hundred cavalrymen.
Before declaring war he raised the
pay of the troops from four to live
aspers. This naturally caused universal enthusiasm.
Sidi Achmed was at the head of the

of freeing the .people.
"By the beard of the Prophet!" cried
Barak Hageb, "seeing.the flight'of his

"By .the holy, apron-of the Prophet's
wife," growled Barak,. "Roxana's.prog-.-

and.not Sidi Achmed."'.'      .-     ;_    .z,

In the meantime," the women were not
idle. When'Barak reti.ir.ned from his
evening devotion's, he found; instead, of
his pious" family of "wives, an-army of
bearded troopers.- Great at first 'was
his fright, for the warriors were .of
fearful aspect. - "
The women had cut off the manes

themselves false beards. l?rom a

boo canes, ,to the1 end of .which they
attached their dainty daggers, making thereby elegant lances.
Yarko, the Tartar, ancl Zibella, the
Indian, commanded thc gentle cavalry.
The troops were divided into three
divisions.
Sidi Achmed came on in wild haste;
as soon, however, as he saw these
warriors, whose long beards swept
down_to J hcir_siimips, Jiis_ heart _sa nk
into his wide breeches! "At once""a
portly hero rode up to him, calling
him lo come forth to single combat.
This was Zibella, so expert with the
knife. The very first throw of her
lance killed Sidi  Achmed.
Under the guidance of the Tartar,
Yarko, thc other Amazons now pressed upon the enemy. The troopers
of Sidi Achmed were bui lukewarm.
Five pennies is a nice sum; but it
hardly pays for a hole in one's sside.
each of these fellows, therefore, took
his shield upon his back, and, turning
that quarter lo the enemy, fled as fast
as his feet could carry him; and a.s
they \vent they roared.
"The"Tartars are coming! The barbarians are behind us. Ten thousand
���������twenty thousand���������-one hundred thousand horsemen, have come to the relief
of Barak Hageb! Save himself who*
can. The Turks shoot wilh lightning."
"Now you see the fulfilment of my
prediction," said Roxana. turning to
Barak  Hageb.
"And mine will be fulfilled, too." added Jedibah, "for the kingdom of our
enemy will go to pieces. Let us
hasten to Kermau."
The head of the Sultan was struck
from his body and stuck on the point
of a lance. With this token of triumph, the party pressed on to Kermau.
Hour by hour their following increased; the runaway soldiers came from
their lurking places and joined the
expedition, so that at last an immense
armv passed over the frontier of the
country.     The city gates were cheer-

We  see there the initial uiovcmont in the  working out of what Prof. Charles  M. Eliot characterized as "The Religion of the Future," and what has  more lately been named "the New  Religion.-" The latter name is a misnomer, for the "new" religion, like  "new" thought, is .limply the coming back to what was before Christianity became so deeply affected by  the  surrounding  paganism.  "In the religious life of the future,'  says Dr. Eliot, "the primary object  will not be the personal welfare or  safety of the individual in this world  or any other. That safety, that welfare or salvation, may be incidentally secured, -but. it will not be the  prime object in view. The religious  person will not think of his own welfare or security, but of service to  others, and of contributions to the  common good. The new religion will  not teach that character is likely, to  bc suddenly changed, either in this  world or any other,"���������������������������-although in any-  world a sudden opportunity for im-  provement may present itself, and  the date of that opportunity may be  a precious   remembrance.       The new  religion will not rely on either a  sudden conversion in f,his world or a  sudden paradise in the next, from out  a sensual,'selfish, or dishonest "life.  It will teach that repentance wipes  - out nothing in the past, and is only  the first step towards reformation;  and a sign of a better future."  - The new religion "will teach a uni-  , versal  good-will',  under  the influence  of which men will do thair duty, and  at the same time; promote their own  happiness. The devotees of a religion  of service will always be asking what  they can contribute to the common  good; but .their greatest service must  always be to, increase the'.stock of  good will among men."      '. .  ,It is. this,  phase - of ".the .-.religious  f'moverrient. in\the United- States- that'  we direct attention to in-this article.  - The movement is not,the result of  any combination of effort on the part  of any of the churches. It is rather  the result of the churches standing  still and resting upon the principle  of authority. The decline of the reliance upon absolute authority in  one of the most significant phenomena of the modern world. The demand of the laymen in all Christian  churches has been for a more practical and active religion. As a rule  the churches have refused to recognize the 'demand, with the result that  the laymen have started a movement  quite   independent   of   the   churches,  O  looking to the moral uplift of the  community. They are receiving the  cordial co-operation of the clergy,  but they do not depend upon the  ministerial profession for guidance.or  success.  The effort seems to be to make religion an affair of everyday life, to  produce such a sentiment that *it will  not longer 'seem strange for a businessman to ' identify himself openly  with the simpler forms of worship.  "It is noteworthy," says the Victoria Colonist, "that .the prople of  Christendom, -aiid especially of Protestant Christendom, are alone in a  species of shamefacedness in respect  to religion. The followers of Islam  do not hesitate to perform their devotions, no matter where they may  be. Pagan peoples are open in the  exercise of their religious rites. But  is it not " a fact ���������������������������, that, the ordinary  Christian business man would feel  rather embarrassed it a caller should  find him at his devotions, or, engaged  in reading the Bible? Is it not just a  little true that very many of us are  rather diffident 7 about confessing to  the,little religion that .we possess ?''  The new" religion -'movement will,  as was predicted - by "jr. Eliot, animate and - guide ordinary men and  women who are putting into practice  religious 7 conceptions ��������������������������� which " result  directly from their _own_ observation  and precious experience "of "tenderness,  sympathy,- trust;' and -solemn'-joy.' It  /will be most welcome to the men and  women who cherish and exhibit incessant, all-comprehending good-will.  These are the "good" people. These  are the only genuinely civilized persons.

The wagon and the eggs had been
settled- for, and now it came fo deciding on the value of the farmer's
horse wliich lay unquestionably dead
in the ditch.
"Now," said Winkles, leaning back
in the tonneau, "how much do you want
for the horse?"
"Twenty   dollars,   1   guess."   said   the
farmer.
"Twenty dollars?" echoed Winkles.
-For that old skate? Why he's nothing but a hat-rack���������a perfect plug."
"Waal," drawled the furmer, "reck-

pelualing a natural defect which .-.hould
be allowed to die out. For example,
many an otherwise fairly good mare
has very weak feet, and as a result
has become so crippled as to bo of
little use. Now, the result of breeding
such a mare Is simply to reproduce
the same weakness in her progeny, and
thus perpetuate a natural weakness.
A. bowed or sickle1 formation of hock
predisposes to curb, round legs and
sniall knees are very subject to strains,
while a predisposition to navicular disease is found in horses with narrow
chests, upright pasterns and out-turned toes. In fact, any weakness of conformation that reduces the value of
an animal, especially if present in any
marked degree, ought to disqualify!
such an animal for use as a, breeder.
Many minor weaknesses in the dam
can. no doubt, often be much improved���������or possibly even bred out���������in tho
progeny by selecting a male which is
as "near perfection as possible where

AN AERIAL TAXICAB
LJleriot has built for Henri Deutsch
de la Meurthe a veritable aerial taxi-
cab. This machine has a body which
looks like that of a taxicab body. The
passengers enter by a sido door and
view the landscape below through mica
.windows. Pneumatic cushions protect
the passengers in rough landings. The
pilot sits in front,.of the machine like
a true chauffeur, and controls the machine with regular Bleriot cloche and
foot tiller. There is even a speaking
tube to facilitate communication between thc passengers within the taxi
and the chauffeur. The elevator has
been placed in front instead of in the
rear. " A 100-horsepower Gnome engine is mounted on top of the cab,
and with it the fuel tanks. The spread
of wing is forty-three feet from tip
to tip, and the over-all length is forty-
six feet.- Ready for flight, without
pasengers, the aeroplane weighs 1,540
pounds.

Owing to so much unfavorable weather, many farmers ov������r Westorn
Canada have fathered at least part of their crop touched by frost or
otherwise water damaged. Hov/evcr, through the large shortage In
corn, oats, barley, fodder, potatoes and vegetables, by the unusual heat
and drought of last summer In the United States, Eastern Canada and
Western Europe, there ia going to be a steady demand at good prices
for all the grain Western Canada has raised, no matter what its quality
may be,
So much variety in quality makes it impossible for those less experienced to judge the full value that should be obtained for such grain,
therefore the farmer never stood more In need of the services of the
experienced and reliable grain commission man to act for him, tn tho
looking  after   selling  of   his   grain,   than he does thi sseason.
Farmers, you will therefore do well for yourselves not to accept
strep' or track prices, but to ship your grain by carload direct to Port
William or Port Arthur, to be handled by us in a way that will get
for you all there is in it. We make liberal advances when desired, on
receipt of shipping bills for cars shipped. We never buy your grain on
our own account, but act as your agents in selling it to the best advantage for your account, and we do so on a fixed commission of lc. per
bushel. . ,
We have made a specialty of this work for many years, and are
well known over Western Canada for our experience in the grain trade,
reliability, careful attention to our customers' interests, and promptness
in makng settlements.
We invite farmers who have not yet employed us to write to.ua for

133 ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  t  -6  ^  The Mountain Lion at Home  (By Charles Stuart Moody)  The intermountain region of the Pa-  s cific slope is the home of the puma,  cougar, or mountain lion (Felis con-  color) and it is here the great cat may  be found in considerable numbers. The  people of the. West call him cougar,  and hc has furnished material for  magazine articles without number,  ranging all the way from the hunting  exploits of Jlr. Roosevelt clown to the  latest newspaper sensation where some  person has been attacked by one of  the brutes. By far the greater number  of these articles have been written  from the viewpoint of the sportsman  and they deal largely with methods of  pursuit and capture. He is air interesting creature, this great feline, and  one that outdoor people should know  more about.  Thirty-one years ago last November  T took my first brief but comprehensive  lesson in the study of the cougar. We  wero entering Idaho at that time by  means of a -bobsled drawn by four  horses. Snow was already on the  ground and it was cold. Mother and  sister sat upon the load of household  goods wrapped in blankets while, boy-  * like, 1 rode on the high California seat  with the driver. -As ��������������������������� we crossed a  small, round meadow the driver pointed with his whip to a line of foot-  v prints  on   the  snow  which   looked  as  ��������������������������� though some person had set a lady's  muff down at regular intervals. The  tracks were made by a cougar. The  sight sent a shiver of excitement up  my. spine.  That night at the supper table the  driver remarked to our host, "Seed a  cougar track over onto th'  Van Horn  medder. Jim Torrance will have t' look  out f'r his, yearlin's."  "Yes," our host replied, "I heard him  f last night over in the White Pine."  ,,   After  thirty-one  years   of  more  or  less,   constant    association    with ' the  - beast, I have arrived at the conclusion  that the cougar is the most incongruous mixture, of courage and cowardice,  boldness and stealth, wisdom and, imbecility of any animal that runs wild.  t You can predicate-with a reasonable  degree of certainty what a deer, bear,  ��������������������������� or lynx will do under given conditions, but you can never tell what  stunt the cougar will pull off, or when.  I have known of his attacking man'  when"there was not the slightest reason for_so doing! Then I have seen  him turn tail and flee when by all the  ���������������������������" laws   of. self-preservation   he   should  "���������������������������have-fought to the last gasp.    I have  seen   him   back - tip _ against   a   snow-  laden bush and fight off'the dogs until  [- the_ hunters arrived;  then I .have seen  f-fhim  lead'-' ib'pack  of  houndsfjover the  ;-, hillsrfor_ an .entire day, refusing to take  - 'a-ftree,'finallj' to make his escape.- I  ; " have-known him-to walk into a farm-'  :��������������������������� Lyard, pick up a pig, and.seemingly wait  until the. rancher, got his gun, then I  have seen him slip away in the7inder-  - growth like "a dun-colored shadow. All  of these traits bear out the Western,  hunters' "assertion that "vou never can'  7  tell." "-   -   ";"- ���������������������������--���������������������������    -  , " North   Idaho,   at   the   time   it' was  .honored  by my  arrival,  was a great,  "unsettled,'" tree-clothed   wilderness   of  -"   mountain  and   hill.. The  wild, things  lived    there    in    primeval    seclusion.  *   white-and-black-tail   deer   were common    as'   sheep "in    a. -pasture;    the  "bugle" of the elk could be heard on  moonlight   nights   coming  from   some  rocky point;   moose came down  from  the highlands to feed upon the aquatic  vegetation  growing about the borders  of-the mountain  lakes;   bear were to  be found in numbers.   With such 'pro-_  fusion of easily procured food, as might  be supposed, cougars were numerous.-  The sporting instincts of a long line  of fox-hunting Virginia  ancestry  impelled our folks to gather about them  ________J__a__l__=QfLho.un d s._______li������������������se__dogs__bQasted_  no long line of canine ancestry, being  chiefly mongrel, but when it came to a  rough ancl tumble with a bear or cougar they were all that could be required. With their assistance we rid  the country round about where we  lived of all the predatory animals in a  very few years.  It would require a volume to recount  all tho interesting incidents connected  with the chase and capture of cougars  ��������������������������� during our first-ten years'-residence ln  Idaho, but a few of these, selected at  random, will serve to Illustrate some  of the leading characteristics of the  animal.  One, the first that happens to occur  * to my mind has a rather amusing   slant.  7 Some three years had elapsed and the  tide of Western  immigration was be-  ���������������������������i ginning to set into the wooded district,  following   thc   lead   of   tho   pioneers.  Among others came a gentleman and  his wife from Pittsburgh.   While they  were   house   building   they   were   our  .guests.    One fall morning, just before  daybreak,  father  called   up  the stairs  ' that   the   dogs   were   chasing  a   lynx.  Now, a lynx skin was about the same  as   a   ten-dollar   bill,   and   ten-dollar  bills were scarce those days.  I bounced out of bed and jumped into my clothes, rushed down stairs and  seized the antiquated muzzle-loading  shotgun charged with buckshot that  we" kept for such emergencies, for a  charge of shot would kill the lynx and  not injure the fur as would a rifle ball.  The gentleman from Pittsburgh dressed and came along. He wanted to see  a lynx. The clarion voices of the  hounds came ringing through the still  air and I knew by the note they had  "treed" their quarry. Guided by the  sound, we reached them.  They were baying up a larch tree,  ancl looking* up, I saw, not the lynx I  had expected, but an old he cougar  sitting on a "bole" some forty feet  from the ground, snarling down at his  tormentors. There was no time to return for the rifle. I turned both loads of  shot into the animal's face, trusting to  stun him so. that the clogs could finish  the job. I-Ie came tumbling out of the  tree, struck the ground, and the dogs  rushed him. Por a few seconds there  was a confused haze of yellow cat and  black and tan dogs all mixed in a  whirling, snarling, fighting heap.  The cougar was not badly injured  and soon began to work devastation in  the Moody dog kennel. The. gentleman  from Pittsburgh danced about in excitement, encouraging the dogs, while  L scarcely less excited, tried to load my  gun. The pressure soon became too  strong and my friend seized as stout  tamarack club and sailed in to help  it the dogs. Choosing an opportunity  he struck the cougar a-blow with the  club, the club broke, and he pitched  headlong into the" arms of that infuriated beast. The consequences might  have terminated seriously had not the  accident distracted the cougar for an  instant, giving the old boss dog a  chance to get hold of his throat. The  gentleman from Pittsburgh retired  from the conflict, minus about half his  clothes and decorated with several  deep cuts as mementoes of his courage.  The two following incidents serve to  show the animal at another angle. They  both happened- in the same week, in  the month of. November, when there  was a foot or more of snow on the  ground. One of the neighbors reported  a calf killed "almost, in sight of the  house. The animal had feasted off his  kill and then made tracks for a deep,  wooded canyon some'miles to the east.  We put the hounds on the trail and  they jumped the cougar in :the bottom  of this canyon. After a, short-chase  they brought him to bay. 'When we  arrived on tha scene they were circling  about a small fir'-biish growing upon  an open ^hill-side. The cougar had  backed up against this bush "and was  fighting off the dogs. He paid'no heed  to our presence nor attempted to escape.   A rifle shot endedhis career.  A, few days later we were prospecting, this same canyon,^ in the-hope, of  .routing'out a bear. -The hounds struck  the fresh track of a-' cougar/evidently  the mate of the other one, and followed  it to. where, the animal had just slain  a snow-shoe rabbit. The animal had  evidently snatched a hasty meal," for  the blood "upon-;"the snow -was still  fresh. In a short time we heard the  dogs "tree." - They were assembled  about a large,'leafy, red fir._  The tracks, terminated within -five  feet of the base of the tree, so it was  evident the animal was hidden 'there,  but where? I recall- father plodding  around that tree, - peering up into the  dense foliage like a man" looking for a  gray squirrel. Where in blazes could  that cougar be hid? She answered the  question by sailing out of the tree, her  legs spread and tail waving like a  flying squirrel. She struck the ground  running, followed hy several, rifle balls  and the entire pack of hounds. That  was the last sight we-ever.had of that  cougar. She" struck directly for the  summit of the range and led the clogs  an all-day chase, finally to escape  among the rocks. - -  I have been much interested in ".the  feeding habits of cougars and their  methods  of  securing_.preyf." Generally  Physicians Recommend Castoria  /^ASTORIA, lias met with pronounced favor on the part of physicians, pharma-  ^ centical societies and medical authorities. It is used, hy physicians with ���������������������������  results most gratifying, The extended use of Castoria is unquestionably the  result of Jhree facts: first���������������������������The indisputable evidence that it is harmless:'  Second��������������������������� That it not only allays stomach pains and quiets the nerves, but assimilates the food: 7w���������������������������It is an agreeable and perfect substitute for Castor Oil.  Ifc is absolutely safe, It does not contain any Opium, Morphine, or other narcotic  and does not stupefy. It is unlike Soothing Syrups, Bateman's Drops, Godfrey's  Cordial, etc. This is a good deal for a Medical Journal to say. Our duty, however, is to expose danger and record the means of advancing health. The day  for poisoning innocent children through greed or ignorance ought to end.

Naturally venison forms the'chief of  his diet, and it is impossible to estimate  the number of deer slain in a year by  one of these animals. There are times  when the cougar seems to slay for the  mero pleasure of killing.  When I first went among tho N"e*z  Perce Indians on the Clearwater River  therc__was_no.white settlement, and only  a few of the Indians remained thero the  year round. Tho winter snows in the  mountains would drive the deer down  upon the river canyons in immense  droves, where thoy remained during  the heavy weather free from molestation. With them came the cougars.  Tt was no unusual sight to find in a  "box" canyon the bodies of half a dozen  deor -with only a small portion eaten  out of  each  carcass.  A good many years ago some sheep  men pastured a large band of sheep on  the Warren Meadows in the Potlatch  country. At night the sh'eep were bedded in a sharp bend of thei Potlatch  River. One bright moonlight night the  i herder heard a commotion among his  charges and rushed out to find two cougars in the hand, killing right and left.

I hastened down from my perch,  ran in the direction of the sound, and  almost stumbled over a two-year-old  buck lying across a dim trail, his back  broken. I listened and could hear the  sound of a cougar threshing through  the undergrowth. He had been watching the deer lick, too,-and had evidently been lying at full length upon  ;a��������������������������� large=limb=o"f=������������������i^eIlaw^iirer^*nia;:=Ss=  the deer passed beneath sprang upon  the ground, the deer turned, and with  the next spring the cat had landed upon his withers, striking a powerful  blow at the same time.  Cougars are-very partial to horseflesh, and there was a, time when the  stockmen on the Grande Ronde in  Oregon wore almost in despair, so  great was the devastation wrought by  them upon the growing colts.  salute that fell to his" own lot was  similarly actuated, and we are not in  a position to contradict him7: Piety  in Scotland is well known to have its  trials ancl-tribulations, but-if it might  mean also a - kiss - from - Professor  Blackie it would seem that yet a'n-  other,obstacle had been placed in"-the  way of the devout-life. -        .   -  THE   MAYOR'S   REWARD  news item that is not without its  THE  BLACKIE  KISS  Is   there  such, a  thing  as   national  temperament?      That is to  say,  may  we ever assume that a particular man  will act  in a particular way  because  he belongs to a particular people?   We  have always assumed so, but perhaps  we have been wrong, ancl now comes a  remembered  experience  of  Sir  Henry  Lucy,   which  seems  to  show  that  we  must correct our impression of Scotchmen.      Sir Henry  tells  us  that  when  he went lo Oban he was met by Professor Blackie, and if Professor Blackie  was not a typical Scotchman we have  yet  to   hear  of  one.      And   Professor  Blackie   kissed   him   "in   sight   of   a  thronged  pier and  a shipload  of passengers."     The incident was momentarily disconcerting, for there can hardly he anything less romantic than the  spectacle   of   an   Englishman   and   a  Scotchman  kissing each other.      It is  like    kissing   a   policeman.       But    it  prepared Sir Henry Lucy for an entry  in Blackie's diary, published some fifty  years later.      Writing to his wife the  professor says  that  he  had  just  met  James Martineau and "in the afternoon  I   came   home   with   him   and   kissed  him because hc is good."      Sir Henry  iiTf(fi'e������������������trrto_ftuaents of municipal gov-  ernment finds its way across the Atlantic from England. The financial  committee of the borough of Bethnal  Green, an important London suburb,  has decided to make a recommendation  that can only be regarded as revolutionary. Not only does tho mayor of  Bethnal Green work without a salary,  but he i.s required to pay out'���������������������������of his  own pocket all those incidental ex-  penses_perlaining_tp.his_lofty position.  This is the injustice that the finance  committee proposes to remedy. A salary is, of course, out of the question. It  would place the soil of a sordid hand  upon an ollice that is paid liberally in  honor but not in cash, but tho incidental expenses are quite another matter and should be borne by the community at large. Hence bo it resolved  that the mayor "of Bethnal Green be  reimbursed to the extent of ?5 a week  or $250 for his year of office. The resolution notes regretfully that in some  few cases it has become the practice to  pay a regular salary to the mayor, but  far be it from Bethnal Green to sink so  low as that. It will keep unsullied its  bright traditions of municipal service.  It shall never be said that the taint of  money has sullied the ideals of its  mayoralty chair. The incident seems  to be a small one, and yet, as a thought  producer, perhaps not so small after  all.
