Evans  & Son,  Pi ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  ONE WAY O UT  Copyright, 1911'  Bg WILLIAM CARLETON  [By Small, Mnynnrd & Co., Inc.  CHAPTER VIII.  (Continued.)  Sunday  \\7 E brought up an old blanket and  T spread it out beneath the.canopy and that, with a chair or  two, made uur root' garden. A local  branch of lhc Public Library was not  far distant .so tbat wu bad all tbe  reading matter wo wanted and hero  we used lo sit all day Sunday whon  wo didn't feel like doin.. anything else.  Here, too, we used to sit evenings. On  several hot nights Ruth, the boy and  1 brought iio our blankets and slept  out. The boy liked it so woll that  finally be came to sleep up hero most  of the summer. It was fine for him.  The harbor breeze swept the air clean  of smoke so that it was as good for  him as being at tbe sea-shore.  To us the sights from this roof were  marvellous.      They  appealed  strongly  because they were unlike anything we  had ever seen or for that matter unlike   anything   our   friends   had    ever  seen.      I   think  that  a  man's  friends  often   take  away   the  freshness   from  sights that otherwise might move him.  I've  never  been  to Europe,  but what  with magazine pictures and snapshots  and Mrs. Grover, who never forgot that  before she married Grover she had travelled for a whole year, I haven't any  special desire to visit London or Paris.  I -suppose   it  would  be  different  if  I  ever went, but even then I don't think  there  would  be  tbe novelty  to  it we  "found   from   our   roof.       And   it   was  just   that  novelty  and   the  ability   to  appreciate it that made our whole emigrant life possible.     It was for us the  Great   Adventure   again.      I    suppose  there are men who will growl lhat it's  all  bosh  to say  there is any real ro-  man-e  in  living   in  four  rooms  in  a  tenement district, eating what we ate,  digging in a ditch and mooning over a  view  from  the  roof top.      I  want  to  say   right  here  that  for    such    men  there   wouldn't   be   any   romance   or  beauty in such a life/    They'd be miserable.     There are plenty of men living down  there  now  and   they  never  miss  a  chance   to   air   their   opinions.  Some  of them  have big bodies but I  " wouldn't give  them  fifty cents a day  tf  work  for  me.      Luckily,  however,  " there, are not many of them in proportion  to  the others,  even  though  they  make more noise.  ' But"when you stop to think about it  , what else-is it but romance that leads  men to spend" their lives "fishing off the  "Banks when they could remain safely  ashore  and  get "better  pay  driving  a  * team?     Or. what drives them into the  "army  or  to  -work  on   railroads  when  they   neither" expect   nor   hope, to'- be  advanced?     Thc men themselves can't  - tell you. " They, take up the work unthinkingly,  but there  is  something  in  the very  hardships they  suffer which  lends   a   sting   to   the   life   and   holds  , them.     The only thing 1 know of that  will  do  this  and  turn  the  grind  into  an inspiration is romance.     It's what  the   new-comers   have, and   it's   what  our ancestors had ancl it's what a lot  of us who have stayed over here too  long out of the current have lost.  On the lazy summer mornings we  could '���������������������������hear the church bells and now  and then a set of chimes." Because  wc were above the street and next to  the sky they sounded as drowsily musical as in a country village. They made  me a bit conscience-stricken to think  that for the boy.'s sake I didn't make  an effort and go to some church. But  Cor a while it was church enough to  devote the seventh day to what the  Bible says it was niade_fr>r,__ R_uth  used to read out louci to us sufu-w������������������r  planned to make our book suit thc day  after a fashion. .Sometimes it was  Emerson, sometimes Tennyson���������������������������I was  fond of the Idylls���������������������������and sometimes  Later on we had  minister who bad  An old battle flag will attract twenty  foreigners to one American.     And'incidentally I wish to confess it was they  who made me ashamed of my ignorance  of   the   country's   history.      Beyond   a  memory   of   tlie   Revolution,   the   Civil  War   and   a   few   names   of   men   and  battles   connected   therewith,   I'd   forgotten all 1 ever learned at school on  this subject.      I'.ut here the many patriotic   celebrations   arranged    by    the  local   schools   in   the   endeavor   to   instill patriotism and the frequent visits  of the boys to the museums, kept the  subject   fresh.       Not   only   Dick,   but  Itulh and myself soon turned to it as  a- vital   part  of  our  education.      Inspired  by the old trophies that ought  to stand  for so much  to us of today  we   took   from   the   library   the   first  volume  of  Fiske's  fine  series  ancl   in  the course of time read them all.     As  we traced the fortunes of those early  adventurers  who   dreamed  and  sailed  towards  an   unknown   continent,   pictured   to* ourselves   thc "lives   of    the  tribes who wandered about in the big  tangle  of forest  growth   between  the  Atlantic and the Pacific, as we landed  on the bleak New England shores with  the  early  Pilgrims,  then  fought with  Washington,  then studied the perilous  internal    struggle'  culminating    with  Lincoln  and  the  Civil  War,  then the  dangerous      period    of   reconstruction  with   the   breathless   progress  following-���������������������������Why  it left us all  better Americans  than  we  had  ever  been  in  our  lives.      It gave  new  meaning  to  my  present  surroundings  and   helped   me  better to understand tho new-comers.  Somehow all those things of the past  didn't seem to concern Grover and the  rest of them in the trim? little houses.  They had no history ancl they were a  part   of  no   history.      Perhaps   that's  becauso they were making no history  themselves.      As  for  myself,  I  know  that  f. was just beginning to get acquainted  with  my ancestors���������������������������that for  tlie first time in my life, I was really  conscious   of   being   a   citizen   of   the  United States of America.  But I soon discovered that not only  the historic but the beautiful attracted  these people. They introduced me to  the Art Museum. In the winter following our first summer here,, when  the out of door attractions were con:  sidcrably narrowed down, Ruth and 1  used to go there about every other  Sunday with the boy. We came to  feel as familiar with our favorite pictures as though" they hung in'our own  house. -The Museum ceased to be a  public building; it .was our own. We  went in with a nod to'the old doorkeeper, who came to know us, and felt  as unconstrained there as at home. We  had our favorite nooks, our favorite  seats and we lounged about in the  soft lights of the rooms i'or hours at  a time. . The more we looked at- the  beautiful paintings, the old tapestries,  the treasures of stone and china, the  more we enjoyed" them. We were sure  to mcet\ some of our neighbors thore  and a young artist who lived on the  second floor of our house and whom  later J came to know very well, pointed out to us new beauties i'i tho eld  masters. He was selling plaster casts  at that time and studying art in the  night school.  I.i the old life, an art museum had  meant nothing to me more than that  it seemed a necessary institution :n  every city. It was a mark of good  breeding in a town, like the library in  a good many homes. But it had never  occurred to me to visit it and I know  it hadn't to any of my former as-  gi-if in i f������������������������������������8 -Tim woman occasionally.  very  a book of sermons,  a call from a youn,  a little minion chapel not far from our j  Hal and who looked in upon us at the j  snip's lion of the .'-eere-mry of the sel- |  , tlemi'iit house.

Perhaps our neighborhood was liie ex-  (.���������������������������cptiuii and a bit more ignorant than  lhe average about sueh things, but I'll  venture to say there isn't a middle-  elat'S community in this eounlr.. where  Iho paintings play the part Ir. the lives  of lho people that they do among the  foreign-boi'iiT "A" class" heller than limy  does thc work; a class lower enjoys  H.

But   I  ain   runnin;.  story.  We'd have dinner this first summer  at about half past one and then perhaps we'd go for a walk. There wasn't a street in the city that  terest us. but as a rule  visit one of the parks,  there were so many of them or thai  they were so different. We had  choice of the ocean or a river or  woods. If we had wished, to spend  say, thirty cents in car fare  have had a further  beach, the mountains, or a taste of the  countrv which in places had not  changed In lhe last hundred years.  This would have given us a two hours'  ride. Occasionally we did  at'present there was too much  within walking distance.  For one thing it suddenly occurred  to me that though I had lived in this  city over thirty years I had not yet  seen such places of interest as always  attracted visitors from out of town,  attention was brought to this  the need of limiting  amusements that didn't  but chiefly by  didn't in-  we'd  plan  to  I didn't know  thai  our  the  end.  we could  choice    of    the  this,   but  to see  My  ���������������������������first by  ourselvs    to  cost anything,  learning where the better   element   down   here     spent   their  Sundays.       Vou   have   only   to   follow  owd  to find out where the ob-  national   pride   are   located.  this cr  jects   of  ic we'd have a lunch of .'old beans  biscuits or some of the pudding*  lhat was left over. Then during the  .summer months we'd go bac; to the  roof for a restful evening. At night  ih>; view was as different from the  day as you could imagine. Behind us  the city proper was in a bluish haze  made by tbe electric lights. Then wc  could see the yellow lights of Lhe upper windows in aii the neighboring  houses and beyond these, over the roof  tops which seemed now to huddle  closer together, wc saw the passing red  rind green lights of moving vessels.  Overhead were thc same clean stars  which were at the same time shining  clown upon thc woods and the mountain  tops. There was something about it  that made me feel, a man and a free  man. There was twenty years of slavery back of me to make me appreciate this.  And Ruth reading my thoughts in  my eyes used to nestle closer to me  and the boy with his chin in his hands  would stare out at-sea and dream his  own dreams.  my whole life, my imagination became  tired with new plans. 1 saw no reason why J myself should not become  an employer. As in the next few  weeks 1 enlarged my circle of -acquaintances and pushed my inquiries in evory  possible direction 1 found this idea was  in tlie air down here. The ambition  of all these people was towards complete independence. Hither they hoped  to .:ol up in business for themselves in  this country or they looked forward  lo saving enough to return to the land  of thoir birth and live there as small  land owners. 1 speak more especially  of the Italians because just now 1 was  thrown more in contact with them than  the others. hx rny city they, with the  Irish, seemed peculiarly of real emigrant stuff. The Jews were so clannish that they were a problem in themselves; the Germans assimilated a little,  better and yet they too were like one  large family. They did not get into  the city life very much and tven -in  their business stuck pretty closely to  one line. For a good many years they  remained essentially Germans. But  the Irish were citizens from the time  they landed ancl the Italians eventually became such if by a slower pro-  CC1S,  The former went into everything.  They are troTiendously adaptable people. But whatever they tackled they  locked forward to independence and  general'y wor it. Even a man of so  humble an ambition as Murp^iv had  accomplished this. The Italians either  went into the fruit business for which  they seem to have a ,-nack or served  as day laborers ancl saved. There  was a man down here who was always  ready to stake them to a can and a  supply of fruit, at an ixorbirant price  L> be sure, but they pushed their carts  patiently mile upon mile until in-the  end they saved enough to buy one of  their own. The next step-was a small  fiuit store. The laborers, once they  had acquired a working capital, took  up many things���������������������������a lot of them going  into the country and buying deserted  farms. It was wonderful what they  did with this land upon which the old  stock New Englander had not been-able  to live. But of course in "part explanation of this, you must remember  t'.nt these. New England villages have  long been drained of their best. In  many cases only the maim, the halt,  and "the blind are left and these stand  no - more chance against the modern  pioneer than they would against one  of their own sturdy forefathers.-  Another' occupation which the Italians seemed to pre-empt was the boot-  blacking business. It may -seem odd  to dignify so-menial an employment as  a business, but. there is many a head  of such an establishment who could  show a fatter bank account than two-  thirds of -his clients. The next, time  you go into a little nook containing,  say, fifteen chairs, figure out for yourself how many nickels-are left there  in a clay. The rent is often high���������������������������it is  some proof of a business worth thought  when you consider Lhat thoy are able  to pay for positions on'-' the leading-  business streets���������������������������but thc labor is cheap  and the furnishings and cost of raw  material slight. Pasqualc had set rne  to thinking long before, when 1 learned that he was earning almost as much  a week as I. It is no unusual thing  for a man who owns his "emporium"  to draw ten dollars a day in profits and  not show himself until he empties the  cash register at night.  But the facL that impressed me in  these people���������������������������and this holds peculiarly��������������������������� \ riip-nf-l |ip_.1pws���������������������������was-that-thev��������������������������� all  sobriety and. honesty. A salary- with  an old, strongly established company  seemed to them about as big a stroke  of luck for a young man as a legacy.  1 myself had hoped, to find a place for  Dick with one. of: the big trust companies.  Of course down here these people did  not have the same opportunities. Most  of the old firms preferred the "bright  young American," and 1 guess they  secured mos' of them. 1 pity the  "bright young American," but I can't  help congratulating the bright young  Irishmen. They aro forced as a result to make business for themselves  and they are given every opportunity in  ilie world for doing il. And fhey aro  doing it. Ancl J, breathing in this  atmosphere, made up my mind that 1  would do it, too.  With this in mind 1 outlined for myself a systematic course of procedure.  Jt was evident that in this as in any  othor business I must master thoroughly the details before taking up tlie larger problems. The details of this as  of any other business lay at the bottom and so for these at least I was  at present in the best possible position. The two most important factors  to thc success of a contractor seemed  to me to be, roughly speaking, the securing and handling of men ancl the  purchase ancl use of materials. Of the  two, tho former appeared to be the  more important. Even in the few-  weeks I had been at work here I had  observed a big difference in the amount  of labor accomplished by different men  individually. I could have picked out  a' half dozen that were worth more  than all "-the others put together. Ana  in the two foremen I had noticed another big difference in the varying capacity of a boss to get 'work out of  the men collectively. In work where  labor counted for so much in the final  cost as hero, it appeared as though this  involved almost tho whole question of  profit and loss. With a hundred men  employed at a dollar and a half a day,  the saving of a single hour meant the  saving of a- good many dollars.  It may seem odd that so ,,obvious a  fact was not taken advantage of by the  present contractors. Doubtless it was  realize'd, but my later experience  showed me that tho obvious is very  often neglected. _ In this business as  in many others, Lhe details fall into a  rut and often a newcomer with a fresh  point of view will detect waste that  has been going on unnoticed for years.  I  was. almost  forty  years  old/ fairly  him say a hundred such men- and by  better treatment, possibly better pay7  possibly a guarantee of continuous  work, make cf them a loyal, hard  working machine with a capacity tor  double the work of the ordinary gang?  Such organization as this was going  on in other lines of business, why not  in this? With such a machine at his  command, a man ought to make himself a formidable competitor with even  the long established units.  (To be continued.)  CHAPTER IX.  Plans for the Future  As I said, with that first dollar in  the ginger jar representing the first  actual  saving I   had  ever  effected  in  shied away from the salaried jobs. In  making such generalizations I may be  running a risk because I'm only giving the results of my own limited observation and experience. But I want  it understood that from the beginning  to the end of these recollections I'm  trying to do nothing more. Tin not a  student. I'm not a sociologist. The  conditions which I observed may not  hold c-lsfwbere for all T know, From a  diTi'orciit"iioinf of vYew,Jlhoy" might~"n ot  Lo another .seem to hold even in my own  city. I won't argue Willi anyone about  it. I set down what I myself saw and  let it go al that.  Going   back   to     thc    small     group  among whom I lived when I was wilh  the   United   Woollen,   ft  seems  to  me  that evory  malt  clung  to a salary na  though it wero hi.s only possible hope.  1 know men among them who even refused  lo work on a commission  basis  although they were practically s.ure of  earning in this way double what they  wero  being paid  by the year.      They  considered  a salary as a form of insurance and  once  in  tho grip  of this  idcii they had nothing Im look forward  to except an increase.     I was no better myself.     I didn't really expect to be  head of the firm.      Nor did  thc other  men.     We weren't working and holding on with any notion of winning independence along lhat line.   The most  we hoped for was a bigger salary. Some  men     didn't    anticipate    more    thar  twenty-five hundred like me, and others  ���������������������������the  younger men���������������������������talked about five  thousand  and  even  ten  thousand.      1  didn't   hear   them   discuss   what   they  were going to do when they were general  managers or vice-presidents,' but  always  what   they   could   enjoy   when  thoy  drew  the  larger  annuity.      And  save   those   who   saw   in   professional  work  a way  out,  this was  the careei  they wore choosing for their sons. They  wanted to get them into banks and tin  big companies where the assurance o'  lazy routine advancement up to a cer  tain point was the reward for industry,  intelligent, and I had everything at  stake. So I was distinctly more alert  than those who retained thoir positions merely by letting things run  along as well as they always had been  going. But however you may explain  it,-1 knew that the foreman didn't get  as-much-work out of me,as he might  have done. In spite of all the control 1 exorcised over myself I often  quit work realizing that . half -my  strength during the day had gone for  nothing. And though "it may sound  like boasting lo say it, I think I" worked both more conscientiously and" intelligently than most of the men.  In the first place tlie* foreman was a  bully. He' believed in driving his  men. He swore at Ihem and goaded  them as an ignorant countryman often  tries to drive oxen. The result was a  good deal the same as it is with oxen  ���������������������������the men worked excitedly when under the sling and loafed the rest of  the time. ' In a crisis, the boss was  able to spur them on to their best���������������������������  though- even then they wasted strength  in.frantic endeavor���������������������������but he. could not  keep them up to a consistent level of  steady work. And that's what counts.  As in a Marathon race the men who  maintain a steady plugging pace from  start to finish aro the ones who accomplish.  Thc question may bo asked how such  a boss could keep his job. I myself  did not understand that at first, but  -lalG-p=a s=I���������������������������woi*ked=wi t-h=-d i ff oren t��������������������������� mciv  and under different bosses 1 saw that  it was because their methods, were  much alike and that tho results were  much alike. A certain standard had  been established as to the amount of  work that should be done by a hundred men and this was maintained.  The boss had figured out loosely how  much the men would work and thc  men had figured out lo a minute how  much they could loaf. Neither man  nor boss Look any special interest In  thc work itself. The men wero allowed to waste just so much time in  getting water, in filling their pipes, in  spitting on their hands, in resting on  their shovels, in lazy chatter, and so  long ns they did not exceed this nothing was said.  The trouble was that lhe standard  was low and this was because the  men had nothing to gain by steady,  conscientious work and also because  Lhe boss did nol understand them nor  distinguish between them. For instance the foreman ought to have got  thc work of two men out of mo, but  he wouldn't havo, if I hadn't chosen  fo give it. That hold true also of  Rafferty and one or two others.  Now my idea was this: that if a man  made a study of these men who, in this  city at any rate, wero the key to the  contractor's problem, and learned their  little peculiarities, their standards of  justice, their ambitions, their weakness and their strength, he ought to be  able to increase their working capacity. Certainly an intelligent teamster does this with horses and it seemed as though it ought to be possible  to accomplish still finer results with  men. To go a little farther in my ambition, it also seemed possible to pick  ���������������������������ind select the best of these men instead of taking them at random, For  Instance In the present gang there  were at least a half dozen who stood  out as more intelligent and stronger  ihvsically than all the others. Why  couldn't a man in time gather about  WHERE WIFE'S RELATIVES LEAD  In England, where the quest ion of  precedence is a vital one, even at family panics, there is a definite rule as  to whose relatives shall go first, thoso  of the wife or thoso of the husband.  Thero are Severn I reasons for this being so. The wife's mother is taken in  to dinner by her son-in-law, thc host,  as he could not take his own mother  or his own sister. Again, a wife could  go in lo dinner with her brother-in-  law, but not with hor own brother when  other men guests were present.  Concerning more distant relations  thc case is different. A host couid  take in his own married niece, ancl the  hostess her nephew, but they would  not do so if the wife's niece or Lho  wife's nephew were present on lhe occasion. This because or Lhe preference  usually accorded Lo Lhc relatives of  thc wife over those of the husband.  It is essentially at dinner parties  that this question of precedence has to  be considered, but in reality it comes  to thc front throughout the day', not  only at mewls, but on all those occasions where one or othor of the ladies  must lake the lead. For instance,  when a drive is proposed, either by  carriage or by motor, the first to enter  the vehicle is a relative of thc wife,  mother or sister, followed by a relative of the husband, the hostess entering last.  At luncheon the wife's mother often  occupies the seat at the bottom of the  table in Lhe absence of the host, and  assists in doing the honors to the  guests. At Lea she also assisLs her  daughter in helping Lhe guesis to all  they require in tho way of cakes ancl  bread ancl butter, etc.  At dinner sho is the first to be helped, as tho waiting commences from Lhe"  host's right hand, and should the guests  be helped in the order in which thoy are  seated, and they happen to be numerous, unless thore are duplicate dishes,,  Lhe relalives of Lhc husband have some  little time'to wait in each course.    The.  signal for thc ladies Lo leave Lhe din-"  ing-room   is  given  by  Lho  hostess   to  the  lady  who  is  seated^at  the  host's  right  hand,   hor. mother" in   a   family  party, and she is the first to lead the",  way    from    the   dining-room    to    the  drawing-room;- -followed -byv. the" "oilier-  ladies, lhe hostess going last.    The ad-,  jo'urnmcht for the highij'is'made"iii a",  like  manner,-the proposal  boing  suggested by- the  hostess  to  her moth'ciy  iind carried out as aforesaid.7 Thus, it  will be seen that throughout-the.- visit"-  the   honors   of   the  situation   arc   bestowed upon the relations of the hos- --  toss, and this by general consent.  THE SOWERS  .  Sowers went out to "sow, but diverse  fortunes followed their sowing.  The. first sower ' sowed the seed in  fruitful ground which" his forefathers  had cultivated from time immemorial.  The seed ca me-forth and yielded the  sower one hundredfold.  The second sower "sowed thc seed in  unfruitful ground which!workers had  cultivated with their hands.    -    ~  The seed came forth and yielded the,  sower ten fold.

CHILDHOOD IN JAPAN  The great day In the Japanese child's  life Is tho Mirayamalri, or the templo  visit, which may be said lo correspond  roughly with tho Western chrislening.  The infant, if a boy, on Lhe thirty-first  clay, ancl ir a girl, on the thirty-third, is  carried to the templo and is placed under the guardianship of a special deity  chosen by the parents. For this occasion the mosL beautiful crepe clothes  Lhat the parents or grandparents can  afford are used, consisting of a set of'  three; the outer one being marked with  the family crest and gay with silk  linings.  Except in dress, no difference is  made in thc first yoar or two of a male,  or female infant's life. White is the  color of mourning, and is never used  for children. Scarlet is the baby's color, but after Lhe first year the boy  baby's clothes are of blue or brown and  black striped materials, while the kimono of the little girl is much brighter,  with large patterns of birds and flowers and leaves, with a profusion of  crimson and pink, which, diminishes  with age, Childhood in Japan is certainly a very happy time. It never  has beon necessary to form a society  for the prevention of cruelty of children, and proverbs such as this show  how tenderly they are cared for and  how fully their importance is recognized in the household: "Kodakara,"  or "Children are treasures."

The'safe'was a back number;  to "think"of soup in,connection with it  would have been'paying it a compliment. After an hour's work with a  can-opener, Sammy ancl Big Head declared themselves within ten minutes  of the money. All that remained was  to batter in tho inner lining* of jthe box.  Big Head cocked a sudden and suspicious ear. *  "What's that?';, he whispered.  Sammy "had just reversed' the can-  opener, for an attack upon the sheet-  iron lining*.     He paused in midswing.  "It's a pinch!" cried Sammy, after a  moment, at_ the same time crashing  down thc heavy iron tool. Then, with  a cataract of curses: "It's a pinch! ���������������������������  an' th' Ghost is in on it! Agnes had  him right!"  lt was a pinch sure enough. Even  as Sammy spoke, Rocheford and Wer-  theimer of the Central Office were covering- them with their pistols.

"That's all right," retorted Sammy,  grimly;  "youso'll get yours, Ghost."  Had tho Ghost been wise he would  have remained in tlio Tombs; it was  his best chance. But the Ghost was  not wise. Within the week he was  walking the streets, and trying to explain a freedom which so sharply contrasted with tho caged condition of  Big I-Iead and Sammy Hart.

LITERATURE   AND   MARRIAGE  No one has put the case so pertinently as Do Quincey when ,he says  that the wives and children of literary  men create "for them thc deadliest of  =theiiu=^anxietieSi=iU=is=pthej������������������=who=stuf������������������  the writing man's pillow with thorns  nnd surround his daily life with snares,  To a man of family who has no resources except what his pen may yield,  what a maddening thought it is that  some day he may be face to face with  sudden failure of his resources, and to  know that instant ruin atends his failure to exert so delicate an organ as  the creative intellect. Do Quincey  sufforpd tills forrihlp Anxiety: nnd so  did ~13ur7is,~ pcrlKips~ovbri In orb- poignantly.  Balzac says that the author, should  have neither wife nor children, that ho  should in common honesty to others  tread his path alone, and Splelhagen,  thc groat Gorman novelist, Flaubert,  Byron, Waller Savage Landor, and  others reinforce this opinion. Vet it  tliere is a man in the world needs tlie  love nnd sympathy of a wife it is the  literary man. But in literature's annals the fact stands forth lhat, of nil  men, authors have been the least happy  in their domestic lives. Shakespeare,  from his own bitter experience, announced that a young man married is  a man that's marred. Milton sang of  "Paradise Lost," and he experienced  it with three successive wives. Addison escaped from his Countess to Wills  Coffee-house ancl the geniality of  Steele and fellow writers. Tlie modern  author escapes through tho divorce  court, whither Bulwer, Lytton, ana  Byron would have found their release  had they been of to-day. Dickens'  domestic troubles have' never been  satisfactorily explained, but he said it  was "a case of incompatibility of'temper���������������������������whose he did not "state.v, And it is  much,- 'this incompatibility of temper���������������������������temperament, too���������������������������from Xantip-  pe downward���������������������������which, apart from the  living wage question,'lies at the back  of the question. -  There have been wives "who were to  their author-husbands both their comfort and their stay. Lamartine "and  John Stuart Mill had life partners who  were perfectly ' congenial. Beacons-  field, in his dedication in "Sybil," terms  his "a perfect wife." Dr. Johnstone's  ^Letfy-��������������������������� mn dc���������������������������him���������������������������V-ery^iappy^and.  hc never ceased to miss her and mourn  her death. Guizot and his wife Avere  as twin-souls, and so were that incomparable pair, Robert Browning and his  helpmate. Wordsworth's wife Avas a  "phantom of delight" to him, while  Shelley's second von lure proved a fortunate choice, the strongest bond of  sympathy and affection existing between tho married pair.

To-day is '���������������������������Maundy Thursday.     The  term is ugly,   but it has a beautiful  meaning.     It is borrowed from Eng-  ' land, and from a very early English  j word,     Alatind,     meaning     basket���������������������������  j maund and nrauudy   having come to  | signify    articles   given in charity or  I from   kindness.       From   very    early  Y        ��������������������������� time thc day before 3ood Friday has  ' j been marked by acts of humility and  kindness to the lowly on the part of  ��������������������������� those in    high    places, in memory of  the Savior's act of washing the feet  of his followers, and serving as a servant those who really were unworthy  to unlatch   his shoes, on the eve of  his passion.   Sovereigns, princes,  ecclesiastics small and great, laymen of  high  degree,   for    hundreds of years  thought it   fitting   to their religious  profession to lay aside personal dignity on this occasion and condescend  to the menial act of washing the feet  of paupers, then   sending them forth  i with   gifts    of   food,   clothing     and  | money.  ANNUAL FLOWER SHOW  It is not surprising that George E.  McCrossan,   president    of thc  Liberals      Association,      Vancouver,  should    feel   sore.    After the strong  light put   up    by   his party in Vancouver, to be defeated and completely  wiped out,    is    no   laughing matter,  and we could    hardly expect Mr. Mc-|  -rossan to waken up on "the morn-'  uig after" with i'cz tce-hces.   But we  oel that we might reasonably expect'  rfr. McCrossan to act the gentleman1  j.en if it is not in his make-up to bej  jno.   It is not much wonder that the  liberal party   should have met such  crushing    defeat   when   it is realized  how far it   has   fallen.   When a man  like McCrossan   can be raised to the  high place of president of the parent  organization of   the   Province, what  may wc expect of the rank and file ?i  .

EVANS & SON  Enderby, B. C.  The Near East Danger���������������������������War Cloud $  Hovering Over Balkans this Spring  (From the Montreal Star.)  It   is   becoming   more   apparent  every day���������������������������in spite of tlie bother of  the coal strike���������������������������that the capitals of  Europe are awaiting the coming of  spring in the Balkans with the gravest  anxiety.     The   position   of   the  Young Turks has become precarious  ���������������������������it may, indeed, be really desperate..   Though Italy is having.a hard  time of it to turn her proclamation  of   the   annexation   of   Tripoli   into  reality,  the  failure of  the Turkish  Government to win any signal military successes in the defence of that  ravished  province,  has .tremendously reduced its prestige at home.    It  must be remembered^that the Young  Turks are a military  party.    They  won and have maintained their position   with'  the' sword.     They   were  theoretically.a Liberal party, broadening the basis of Turkish rule from  that  of   narrow   Moslem   fanaticism  to a working union of all Turkish  subjects;   but  this  theory   has,   as  practised, failed to attract the non-  Moslem sects, while it has aroused  the disquiet of the stricter Moslems.  So that the Revolution has nothing  left to save it except the sword; and  ,the impotence of the sword is leaving the Revolution defenceless.  The fear is that the spring may  see this impotence put to the test.  Macedonia is already in a state bordering on anarchy. Albania .ie in  permanent rebellion. For the present/all is in abeyance; for neither  the marauding tribes nor the punitive Turks can move because of the  snows. But the snows will soon  melt; and ti.en what? Several oin-  ister . facts emerge. , Bulgaria , and  Greece seem to, have come to ' an  agreement. Now, if this does not  mean - the partition of Macedonia,  Wuat does it mean? But' partition  ^ouid" only be arrived at with' the  consent of Austria;.and Austria will  not permit any obstacle to he placed  acioss the path to Salonika.

It is a common practice to assume  that Austria might create a great  South'1 Slav Kingdom and turn itself  into;.a~Triple^ Monarchy;"*' 'One; diffi:  culty, in the way of this would be to  peisuade. both' Austria',and Hungary  to-give, up'their Slav .Provinces" to  the new partner; and yet it does hot  seem as if this difficulty should be  serious. " The ruling/races .in both  Austria and Hungary, have had'their  power  challenged    recently " by "the  press on its "rapprochment" with  Germany and so re-establish the  concert of Europe, which "steamroller" will flatten things out in fine  style.

They are believed to number nearly 100. By the  end of 1912, at the present rate of  activity, there will be 200.

It is a poor choice between  these two policies. Poor old Britain must either hasten to make  friends, with the difficult Germans;  or must announce that she has no  interests in a section of the world  where she fought the Crimean War,  where she subsequently barred Russia out of Constantinople, where she  took Cyprus, where she raved over  the Bulgarian massacres, where she  backed plucky little Greece, and  near which she now has Egypt and  the Suez. Then, if Austria threatens to seriously worst Russia, has  Britain no interest? If the German-  Austrian alliance looks like the heir  of Turkey, does it not matter to  Britain or France? In the present  delicately-poised state ot- tlie international ' situation, it is impossible  for Britain to pretend that i;he can  be indifferent towards any important  shifting of the balance of power.  -Germany's Aerial Fleet.

A  greater difficulty,- it _'seems'to us,  would be to get the necessary. con:  sent of Bulgaria arid Russia. They  aie both Slav Powers, and would not  relish the permanent loss of a part  of their possible territory to a rival,  while Bulgaria especially would object to being so entirely overshadowed in its own neighborhood.* For a  =Triple=Monarchy,=owing=allegiance  to the Hapsburgs, would, in time become the most powerful nation in  Eastern Europe���������������������������if not on the Continent, s  Yet. if Russia, Bulgaria" and  Turkey joined forces against such a  project, to which we can add the  armies of Roumania and Servia, it  could hardly be accomplished. The  _fact is: that, just as the jriyal.j^m-  bitions of the great powers for so  long kept a tottering Turkish Empire on its decrepit feet, so the rival  hopes of the nearer nations today  may serve the same purpose. The  danger will be that Turkey herself  will see another revolution, through  the decayed prestige of the "Young  Turks; and that the consequent temporary liberation of Albania or  Macedonia may be regarded by one  of the neighbors as but a disguised  removal of these countries to the  care of some" one else. Then the  game of "grab" will be precipitated.  Nor is it safe to assume that Italy  will be content to get Tripoli alone.  Italy will be very much engrossed,  indeed, if it permits Austria to  secure the other shore of the Adriatic without a protest; and it should  be remembered that the collapse of  Turkish power would render it unnecessary for Italy to hurry on with  the occupation of Tripoli. Britain  did not hurry with the occupation of  Egypt and'the Soudan where there  was no outside opposition.  The British Government is being  variously counselled in this matter.

The  evidence, pitifully scant pro and overwhelmingly strong eon, bad been vigilantly sifted by tlie attorneys aud measured out to tlie jury, all iu the shifty-  eyed presence of the crumpled bit of  humanity in the prisoner's box.  As the judge rose, pompous and  paunchy, to make iiis charge to tho  jury, the foreman of that insignificant  body leaned back iu his arm chair, complacent in the prospect of the case with  which a verdict muse be arrived at.  Thc performance of his duty, however, was no trivial matter to the <'on-  ���������������������������scientious deacon. His solemn sense, of  its importance he had expressed by don-  niug his Jong, funereal frock coat. That  his function was nol exactly religious,  only somberly and seriously secular, liko  acting as pallbeaicr at a week-day  funeral, he had indicated by wearing  his gray flannel shirt: and second-best  brownish gray trousers. He was unpleasantly conscious, too, that in the  worldly anxiety connected with this  disagreeable business, he had disturbed  with his fidgetty fingers the Sabbatar-  ' ian sleekness of his insufficient gray  hair.  Protesting, shocked, irritated digits  they were, for the details of the trial  had been most unpleasant oven* though  tho facts had not seemed-elusive. For  generations in five counties round about,  no such calamity as a murder and its  consequent catastrophes had blighted  ���������������������������vthe public good name. Human wickedness in the abstract was a favorite subject of invective for the deacon in  prayer-meeting; human sin in practise  he found not only offensive but dis-  c-oncorting.  "fou must bear iii' mind, however,  gentleman of tho jury, that not one  word of this remarkably clear chain of  evidence is direct and positive."  At the_,words of the judgo, the foreman moved a bit uneasily in his chair  and settled his stiff Sabbath-coat collar  more amicably over its unaccustomed  neighbor, the easy-going flannel shirt-  band, The attorney for thc defonse  had already harped sufficiently on the  dangers lying in decisions based on  circumstaucial evidence. These easy  .acquittals on the ground of insufficient  evidence only put a premium on criminality.  " In such an instance it becomes your  duty to.determine whether the evidence  as  educed^ from  the "attendant circumstances, "proves beyond all-possible human doubt, the guilt of the prisoner, at  < the,bar,", instructed tho judge.  '"'    The  deacon  resented  tho implication  that any  such - reasonable doubt  could  ���������������������������exist about this case.    For his part, his  mind .was mado up  once  for all   time.  The whole thing was too obvious, too  simple to admit of uncretainty.      This  strange, man, the. prisoner, and a woman, going no one.knew whither from  no   one  cared " whence/ in   a" "mover-  .wagon," had camped for the night  under" the-maples along the roadside  just below tho old Quinn place, more  rtfoentty owned and farmed by a comparative neweomor from Illinois, John  Nfatthows by name.  Early evening passers-by saw them  make camp there; later travellers heard  their voices in angry altercation'in the  wagon and beside the fire. John Matthews*' hired man, putting his horso  away on his return' from town about  eleven o'clock, heard a "shot in the direction of tho wagon. Matthews, thc  nearest house-dweller, had slept, solitary  bachelor that ho was, till roused by the  neighbors with the.news of the adjacent  tragedy.  Investigation���������������������������for what corn-growing  i.ftmmumty-startlod-l>V_a_.|ristol_Bliot Jn.  the brooding peace  of  tho  night" hour  From its duty depths showing ebon-  blaciv in the yellow sheen of the afternoon sun glint, a ily was buzzing a  futile and stupid attempt lo escape.  What there could bo in thc frantic  humming of a foolish fly thus to ensnare any sane man's attention the  deacon eould not. understand.  If the insect had one atom of sense,  u would see that the avenue of flight  lay just above its purposeless circling.  With an uncomfortable senso of impact,  the deacon's eyes met lho eyes of Matthews. A slow strange ghost of a smile  shadowed the thin" brown face of tho  juror. Wifeless, childless, ho had lived  too much alone, decided the gregarious  deacon.  ���������������������������T repeat, gentlemen of the jury, the  circumstances must prove beyond all  possible refutation, the guilt of the accused," cautioned'the judge's voice.  Back lo a sense of his responsibility  in tho burden of the lifo or death of  this whimpering culprit, shuddered the  deacon.  "The wages of sin/" he whispered  to himself to "fortify his spirit as the  judge concluded his instructions. A  perturbation of mind too general' to be  called doubt, born of what parent  thought he knew not, ruffled tho stern,  unrelenting quality of his earlier decision. "Thou shalt not kill/' might* be  as stringently laid on the foreman "of  the jury as ou the criminal in the dock.  Absentmindedly, even to inattontive-  ness,.he watched thp closing formalities.  An awesome sense of the inevitability*  of the 'thing, of the finality of the  ovent, seized upon' him with the sharp  click of the latch of the jury-room door.  For two heartbeats, he permitted himself to heresy of condemning any gov-  ermental system and social order that  had power thus to mavo .i dozen men  their brolloi '���������������������������> keeper.  Reassurance lay in the familiar'faces  of his colleagues.^. The hibtt of i'*ader-  sh:p w������������������<*. strong in the deacon. Right  is right. Wrong is wrong. Their, duty  as mon and citizens, disagreeable as it  might be, lay straight ahead. This man  whose feverish lifo-breath was theirs  to strangle or set at peace," had'-sat-ifi  the seat of the scornful." The wages  of sin mtiBt not be denied.  for justification.   The deacon dodgod.  "You don't mean to say that a man  has a right to shoot his wife?" spoke  up a new voice, oily, gently conciliating  as to a madman.  "It'e a quicker wav than slaving her  to death," .7 '.'  Then flaring a blaze of contempt at  the speaker,.. the' deacon'$���������������������������������������������������������������������������������- own cousin,  who sat at his right hand, Matthews  turned to thei. deaeou again as the seat  Oi authority.  "That miserable whelp theio, your  own kin, has five hired men on' his  place. Iiis wife has had ten children,  and ain't never once had a hired girl  even in harvestin' aud tlij-nshin'. She  don't even got enough to eat. All thc  stingy cuss raises he sells; all he can't  soil hc feeds to thc hogs; what the hogs  don't want the family gets. And yot  he sets there, a steward of tlie mysteries, passin' judgment on a stranger,  when he's the one himself thai; needs  hangin'."  Tho deacon laid a hand of precaution  on the fat, purple anger-spluttering man  beside him. Tho tenseness of tragedy  threatened to fall into the bathos of  (ho comedy of a cheap brawl, when the  gray eyes burned his and the rasping  voice stung again his startled ears.  "When did you ever kiss your wife?  When did you ever get her a "new dress?  When did you over praise hor bread?  She had pretty clothes, plenty enough,  when you and Doc Ashton was sparkin'  her. And she'd had thom now if she'd  took Doc instead of you. .D'you think  anybody'd be to blame but you if she'd  last chapter of the tragedy had detained  the twelfth juror in tho -'jury-room:'  Jarred loose from his traditions, bewildered by the whirl of unaccustomed  events and. ideas, the deacon turned toward the jury-room  door.  "L>'ye suppose he told the truth*?  Or did he just say it to save his cousin'.  D'ye reckon he'd be saved, or would  his soul be lost?" queried his cousin at  his..elbow,  bound in pachyderm.  .  The deacon looked at that individual  with new eyos. An unrighteous desire  to smash with his fist the smug primness  of'that piggish face pulled the diaconal  features into nn ungodlv scowl.  "That's none of our business," tho  deacon replied sharply'. "All we've "*ot  lo do is to bury tho body.'-'  Her Skin Was Yellow  _"I had only to try Dr. Hamilton's  Pills to appreciate their merit,'' writes  Miss   Annie   S.  Bryce,   of   Woodstock.

Two cmpLy-cartridges in .his gun. he  explained by showing thc remnants of  two quail loft from their supper, a  iiAtural defense but silly in the face of  the facts. A gambling outfit had been  dipcovered in the search nf the wagon.  This man had walked in thc counsel of  the ungodly; therefore he must not  stand in the judffnoiit.  Ho had refused consistently lo give  anv information about himself or his  wife; even his name was unknown. He  had called upon no friends for help.  To the deacon, n highly influential member of a numerous :iud wealthy farmer  clan, this hopeless alonencss was in it-  HOlf n most incriminating feature of the  trial. Furthermore, the a-'cused had  declined persistently the comforts of  religion and thc inquisitively proffered  ���������������������������Morviees of both pastor and people.  For confirmation in this judgment tlie  deacon looked down the line of eleven  farmers' faces turned toward the  judge's instructions. Ten jurors were  earnest but unruffled, well-fed,, narrow-  ly ���������������������������'shrewd.'honest, not widely varying  typos of tillers of tho-. soil.,. Sincerely  searching for tbe truth;:this decade of  the deacon's old frionds and neighbors  listened with a realization of the grim-  ness of their duty.  -  Thc twelfth man, John .Matthews, thc  outlandov, chosen at the last moment aa  'talesman.to complete thc panel, watched  with strained widely oponcd eyes not  the judge's exposition of .their function  but some point in space-which the deacon could not at-first locate. Following lhc line of tho man's steady gaze,  the deacon finally discovered that the  obiect of tbo unwavering scrutiny was  Jn empty ink-bottle left from the last  term of court on the walnut table be-  low lhc .judge's bench.  Aware at length of the lapse of a long  tense silence, the foreman raised his  tired eyes to the double row of-solemn  faces along the black walnut table-top.  Opposite him at tho other end.of'the  justice-scarred table-top, wit John Matte ews. From the black-ringed, steel-  gray agony in that juror's eyes"the dea-"  con ..could with difficulty move his gaze  as he called -for the first vote. -This  was grim business, this deciding the  right of a sinner to live on in his sin;  but a man's duty must be done and  there was small avail in such vicarious  suffering as that which stiffened John  Matthews' pallid face.  The ballot stood eleven 'to one for  conviction and sentence of death. On  the gray miserable faces along the table  and the torment-twisted,features at the  ond, tho deacon read the explanation  of tuc divided vote.' He braced himself  for the struggle to bring those defiant,  forbidding oyes to reason.  One ballot should have decided it.  Sorely this grisly task nooded no additional burden of difficulty.. Clayton  County must not shirk before the eyes  of her neighbors thc duty of administration of justice to hor evil-doers.  "' 'Let a man ho account of us of  stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover, it is required in steward's that  they be found faithful.'

Thoy promised to bo troublesome  " 'Moreover, it is required in stewards that a man bo found faithful,' '���������������������������'  repeated tne foreman, with his eyeB  persistently melting at the rigor of  .Matthews ���������������������������' own.  "The man ain't been proved guilty,"  tlio deacon watched thc bloodless lips  affirm.  "   "Bnyond ~- all reasonable "human  douut." he hoard his own rnsping voice  nnswor.  .\ laugh that sent the deacon's fingers  clutching his palms, distorted tho set  anguish of the talesman's face. A  doubt of the man's sanity chocked the  dencon 's roply.  " Beyond all possible human doubt,"  he   fouud   himself  repeating inanoly.  The fire of physical pain and mental  distress burned in the juror's deathlike  pallor, giving an instant's color.  "The man ain't proved guilty," and  some inner flame glowed in his dogged  persistence.  "Beyond all reasonable doubt," repeated the deacon against his own volition.  "The judge said not to convict on  circumstantial evidence," and the deacon wondered if his own perturbed  fancy had tricked him into hoaring a  wistful tone in the words.  "Except, when-it proves '. boyond all  possible human doubt the guilt of. the  prisoner at the bar," quoted the deacon,  impelled by some motive force outside  himself.  "A lot you know about the prisoner  at thc bar! A lot you know about anything or anybody outside your own cornfields and pig-pens and church and grocery store!" And the high-pitched  tones slipped down into thc deeper note  of scornful indignation. "Stewards of  tho mysteries! And you can't read the  meaning of any human oxperionce beyond the end of your own nose! Maybe  thc man had a right to shoot the woman."  The doneon felt rather than saw tho  ten spines stiffen in startled amazement.  Ten pairs of oyes looked at the deacon  It's  only because she's too good to even  think of such a thing that she don't do  it. Jt's none of your good doin'a that  sho hasn't." Aiid the voice shrilled  off into a   half-hysterical sob.  Tho man was crazy. But a cold  clutch gripped, the deacon's breath at  thc effrontery of the man's suggestion.  Framed in its crinkly, gray hair, the  placid, inscrutable face of his middlc-  agod mate trembled before his misty  eyes, A chill shook him at the thought  of a possibility of her loss.   -  Tho chill burned, into a white heat  at the thought of hia old-time rival.  hated, perhaps feared, even after all  these yoars of possession. The dea������������������on  had come by way of this man's wild  words to a new bit of knowledge, and  quite against his will his eyes acknowledged their debt to the ones across the  table. The man was mad.  _ "Oh, no, fm not crazy. 1 wafc once,  years ggo,.-biit.,l;m sane enough now.  T had a wife once, too, like "you,* before  I moved here���������������������������back in Illinois." His  voico dropped into the drone'of a schoolboy reciting a hatod .lesson.  "She was pretty; she had always  lived in town, and had a good-time, und  I married her and moved onto the farm  und-wont'to work, and I forgot she was  a woman and my wife. She was young  and liked company .and =fun and nice  clothes like women do, but-T wanted to  pay for the farm. ~'My cousin had want-  od her before T got her, and hc kept on  wanting her. Jt's the same old story  of two h'ien and one woman1-common  enough���������������������������common enough.

The bitterness of'tlie memory drew the tense eyelids tight for an.  instant. - ' , - ���������������������������*���������������������������  "And she wont."  The deacon's universe, of self-satisfaction had crumbled into bits at the  man's arraignment of his domestic procedure; it was ground into atoms forever by the forco of a blinding, choking fellow-feeling of rage, jealousy, wild  longing for revenge, a desire to kill,  roused by the maundorings of this sane-  eyed lunatic.  "And she wont," ropeated the voico  dnll)r. "T moved out here. They didn't  get on very well. Ho's a failure. You  needn't set yourself up to judge men  for their sins'; the sins'11 do that.

Oh, Molly,  Mollv! -"---*  ���������������������������  The deacon and his colleagues sat  paralyzed before this black chasm of  human experience which.their nice philosophy of life could not bridge.  " Vou sec, folks got in sometimes, too,  and can't get out, like that poor little  devil of a fly in lhe ink-bottle, even  when tho bottle's open. And now"--  he spoke in a whisper and staggered  to his feet, his eyes glazing, and his  breath coming iu gasps���������������������������"don't you  think we'd better lake another vote on  the verdict!"  He fell face forward with a shivering  thud of his limp weight.  Following thc deacon's eye, lhc men  rose from the table in unison like a  machine. Like men in a dream, they  filed from the jury-room. In a daze the  foreman heard the verdict, "Not  guilty."  The murmur of surprise in thc courtroom barely touched his ears. He was  consciously adjusting himself to a wider  horizon lino. A chiHcold,.a9 the wind  over a summer hail-storm, shivorod  through   him;   he  knew  well; that  the  THE EVOLUTION OF  SHOES  The earlier shoe was a sandal, most  frequently of hide or loathcr, but sometimes of wood. When one encounters  lhc word "shoo" iu the Bible, ho may  be sure that it is the sandal that is  commonly  meant.  In Kgypt thc sandal was woven1'of  palm leaves and papyrus. As a symbol  of tho subjection of thoir enemies the  Egyptians often painted the figures of  their opponents ou the lining, of thoir  sandals.  If ��������������������������� utility ' was the, first' motive iu  wearing shoes, art and decoration aoon  crept in. Ladies permitted themselves  great luxury in the attire of their feet.  Thc sandal became closely - identified  with symbolism, very much in the same  way that the glove did later. To throw  a sandal or shoe over a tract of land  was a symbol of possession. This is  fho meaning of the Biblical .phrase,  "Over Edom will I cast my shoe."  In timo the .sandal camo to have  many forms. Two varieties .developed  in Greece for use in dramatic performances: the sock for comedy, the buskin  for trngedjv The "buskin reached to  the knee, wa9 something like a high  Wellington boot, aud showed very thiok  Boles,.intended to increase the-stature.  The sock reached only to the ankle,  and appears t������������������ have.been worn when  quick  movement was desired.  It was in Rome that tbe sandal bo-  gan to take a shape something like bur  modern shoe. There are in Eaatern  Europe peoples, whose civilisation-'are  derived from Borne, who still oling to  the unroformed sandal, but the Rome  of Augustus was more luxurious. The  footgear of patricians was decorated  with golden clasps and embroideries,  and shoe-making* became, an elaborate  trade'."* "- * - - ' :-\. ....���������������������������  Ordinary walking-Shoes frequently  had a wooden sole like some of the  sandals'of .Egypt, aud it is probably  from those that the French peasant of  today derivos his sabots. The wealthier  classes indulged in dainty slippers, aud  laced boots,.while the emperors wore  purple buckskins.- Red_ was permitted  to-the nobility; the commons had to  content themselves with more sober  coloring.  - In England under, the Norman influence some extraordinary developments  took'place. During thc time of the  Plantagencts thc - toes, of shoes were  turned up like rams' horns or- wore,  drawn out to such a length.that tho  points had to be laced to. the kneoa.  These were of bright colors,-sometimes  different for each,foot, and jewels and  precious stones were. stitched upon  them.. Later large rosettes of colored  ribbon were attached." -., " /.  It has been pointed out that' the  sturdy sandals of the Teutonic tribes  enabled them to march aaross Europe  to the walls of Rome. The footgear  of an army is one of the most important  parts of its equipment.  PRIMITIVE SURVBYING  .

Willi  While the adventures of the average naval officer occur at sea, the most  exciting of any in the life of Captain  Prank Helm took place several year-  ago, whon he thought himself quite  safely ashore. But then Helm is anything but an average naval oflicer. To  his friends the Captain is best known  as the "Admiral of the Philippine  Navce," the propriety of which title is  somewhat in doubt, for there is no  Philippine "Navce'.' in the first place,  and secondly, Helm maintains  that wero thero any such thing  iu existence, he would have  none of it. What Helm roally docs iB  to take complete charge of navigation  in the Philippine Islands, and ho does  it very well indeed. His' lighthouses  alone save hundreds of ships each year,  and he is worthy of any insignia Iiis  friends decree. But to return to what  Helm avers is the moat thrilling incident  of his eventful career. It happened, he  tells us, in Pershing's famous campaign  in Mindanao, and that, says the Captain, was in 1903.,  At that time Pershing was operating  about twenty-three miles from the coast.  1 did not get to his camp in time to join  him; in fact, I was a whole day behind,  and it looked as if 1 wouldn't get to see  anything at all. But Captain Fitzpat-  ricli of thc Fifteeth Cavalry, who had  beon left in command of the camp", was  about to send food across tho lake tbat  lay between us and the force in the field,  and f decided I would take a chance  and go along with the natives who were  to, work the boat.  There were six of them in the craft,  friendly Moros, and when we got the  supplies aboard it was iate in the afternoon. Dusk came on as we Beared Ma-  en., on the opposite bank. I could bear  Pe'-Hhmg's guns going about four or  iv8 miles away, and that was somo satis-  l.������������������tion,,although coinciiently witn my  gathering in the sound came a di.M-ov-  ery of a lot of Moros, all armed, running  down to the beach ahead. I was the  only white man in the b%>at, of course,  uad my,companions told mo to lie down  fiat in the bottom, and wheu L had adjusted myself as best I could so as to  imitate bags of food they covered me  with a ,6arong, a doth'.the natives use  as a garment."       :'  As soon' as we grounded .the armed  men"swarmed about the boat. Some of  them-eat on th^ gunwale',, and-1 eouM  have, grabbed a dusky .leg or two, but  I had no such mind. 1* knew enough of  their,' lingo to gather- what- they were  talking about, arid it was by no-means  inspiriting to hear them-brag "about the,  number of Americans they- had killed  that" morning... In my position I was a  good-deal cramped, but'I.hardlyn'dared  to breathe,.for I.realized that if somebody-lifted one-corner of-that sarong  thatjwouldbe about all for me'y In the  morning l_had written a note to Per-  shino asking him. to send a troop of  cavalry, and I wondered whether my  messenger had got through.  lt seemed I had been lying there an  hour whon shouts were heard-and more  men came running down'to the beach. J  was couvinee'd 'that they were coming  after'my head, and began to wish 1 had  not been so enthusiastic about wishing  to see a fight. There was a lot-of jabbering, and as it proceeded my ears  pricked up and then I"threw the sarong  off and got up and stretched myself.'!  decided-il they had to have me I might  get a better chance standing,up to take  a Moro or two along with me. T had  learned from the conversation that the  late arrivals were messengers from the  Dato of Macin, whom Pershing had  whipped that morning, though as yet I  did not know_it, and they kuew 1 was  iu^thiir'bWtT^They^b^  irom their master to como ashore and  call upon him.  To me that looked very much like an  invitation to come on and be chopped  up. There was no choice, so I followed  thc messengers. Tho Dato told me that  Pershing had got the better of him that  morning, and that he had submitted and  was now anxious to show Pershing that  he was as good ae his word.,He proposed  to'send - me _on to-tho -American -commander, giving me safe conduct and an  escort. Well, I wasn't altogether so  i?uro of his intentions, but I palavered  away and expressed my appreciation of  hi.s royal consideration, and prepared to  ���������������������������say "ready."  At a sign from the Dato five of the  most villainous-looking Moros Helm had  over seen came forward with drawn  krisses. What a kriss is the Standard  Dictionary does not say, bnt we presume tbat it was a weapon sharp enough  and long enough to make trouble enough. Anyhow, wo read that (still with  drawn krisses) three of the Moros placed themselves at the head of the despairing Captain, while the other two  stationed themselves at the rear. He  goes on:  1 had no weapon but an old navy revolver that would not cock', but I  thanked the chief for his courtesy while  other emotions than gratitude fought  for the mastery.  Our route lay through a country dotted with cottas or small groups of native huts. W^ nad Dot g������������������ne far w*ien.  one of tho fellows in front suddenly  disappeared in one of these cottas and  I guessed that some trick was up. A  little farther on, another disappeared,  and Boon after the last of the vanguard  was gone. The two in the rear still remained, aud I can tell you it was far  from comfortable marching along there  in the gloom with two savage-looking  Moros just a few feet behind me. When  we reached a canal aud the roar-guard  tald me to cross it, I felt euro 1 was just  about to get a blow ou thc back of the  head. This impression received some-  i~.ng liko confirmation as 1 stopped  into tho ditch.  I had had an idea that tho water was  only about two foot deep, for it was  dark and there was no way of guessing,  i went in ovor my head. The water, I  found'when 1 got on my feet again, was  really only four feet deep, but, owing  to my miscalculation, I had fallen,  which had almost -the effect of being  struck.  When 1 got to the other bank 1 started ahead ais fast as 1 could go, for 1  saw the light of camp-fires. I did not  look back to sec if my rear-guard -was  following, but whistled as loud as I  could. There was no answer, and fearing to attraet a shot from a native 1  dropped behind a dike. . Then" I crept  forward about 100 'yards and dropped  again. I'heard_firing, and then I lit for  the camp as* fast ae I'could go, yelling  in English as I ran. The call ������������������f an  ontpost for me to stop yelling'and come  on in was grateful music. It just happened that I had struck the side of-the  camp from which they were not firing,  THE   BOY     WHO     EEOKE     THE  LIBERTY BELL  Every patriotic ^American has learned of Liberty Bell which from the belfry of the State House at Philadelphia  proclaimed proudly the Declaration "of  Independence,, and which -seven years  later made known the joyous news that  peace between the United States"-,and  the mother eonntry had been at last restored. " For more than a century the  old beU, srtill preserved in Liberty Hail,  has been a shrine for countless pilgrims  from every eorner of the civilized world  who have seen the large crack running  the entire length of the bell, and unfitting it for duty. This break was always thought to have occurred while liberty Bell was tolling at the funeral of  Chief Justice John Marshall, on July"8,  1835, but other stories,at odd.intervals  have gone the rounds,- and .this one ie  the latest.1- - *  - -'���������������������������   ���������������������������>���������������������������' ���������������������������- *  Now, more .'than three-quarters of a  century after-the; old bell was silenced,  comes a man who declares that none of  the-'more or lees" accepted-versions "of  how it eame to be cracked-is, correct;  that hie - version '"alone is' the true o.3>  planation of the - incident. - For more  than fifty years, he'declares, 'he has  been reading-in newspapers and elsewhere'all the various conflicting stories  off the 'accident, but; "inasmuch" as- his  has been an extremely busy life,,he has  never bothered his ��������������������������� head' ��������������������������� overmact  about them until.quite recently."'"  Being now-old, and.'retired. from act-,  ive work he has more, leisure on' his  hands; his mind dwells more-and more  on the past, his-tenacious memory, of,  which.he is extremely proud, is prone  to take him back to early youth and  review the.happenings that still stand  out from the haze of yesterday.  , So, when a few days ago this man  saw yet another story "of how the Liberty Bell was. cracked, and realized vet  again that his memory'branded it as incorrect, he hastened to protest.   -  "1 was one of those who wero present and assisted in 'the cracking of  that bell���������������������������perhaps 1 am the:only person  now living who was present," hc stated.  Those words took a Times reporter at  once to his house with the request for  f nll^details.- ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� --���������������������������     .   - ���������������������������=  The man who, he says, helped erack  the oid Liberty Bell, is Mr. Emmanuel  .Joseph Rauch, of 380 West 116'th  Street. lie is eighty-six years old, but  doesn't look it. In fact, so straight  is he still, so square and robust, that  he seems scarcely older than his won,  a man who has turned fifty.  And Mr. Rauch's manner of speech  is such as to justify the pride he takes  in _his__memqry.  His  talk _gocg; right  ahead, without hesitation or confusion.  He never adds anything concerning  which he feels the slightest uncertainty.  Hc was born at Cluster, Pa., of Pennsylvania Dutch stock, on November (5,  lS'J.'i, and removed with his parents to  Philadelphia when ho was .������������������evon years  old. It was three years later���������������������������in lS3fi  ���������������������������that, according to him, tho cracking  of thc Liberty Bell occurred. That is  the year usually given as the one in  which the mishap occurred, but Mr.  Rauch iH emphatic in his statement that  the bell was not cracked on the occasion of Chief Justice Marshall's funeral. Here is his own version of tho  occurrence:  "The Liberty Boll was cracked, as 1  remember, on Washington's birthday,  1S35, and this is the way it was dono:  '*! was then ten years old. On that  day 1 had been sent by ,my mother on  an errand to a shop not far from our  home. On my return from it, 1 was  walking through State House Square  when I noticed that the janitor, or  steeplckeeper, of the old State Houso  building was beckoning    to mc, .   His  name was Downing���������������������������'Major Jaek,' we  U6cd to call hini���������������������������and he was a well-  known character in Philadelphia at that  time.  " 'Come here!' he ealled to me and  to several boys whom he spied in the  square. After he had corralled six or  eight of ne���������������������������I don't remember exactly  how many���������������������������he told us that he wanted  ns to ring the Liberty Bell in honor  of Washington's birthday. Tho idea  pleased us very mueh���������������������������we boys were  uot in the habit of ringing the old bell  ���������������������������and we agreed to do it.  "Then Downing climbed into the  steeple of tho State House and tied a  rope to the clapper of the bell. Coming, down again, he put the end of this  rope into our hands and instructed us  to pull with all our might, which we  did.  '' Wo were working away, and the bell  had struek, so far a8 I ean recall, about  ten or a dozen times, when we noticed  a change in thc tone. We kept ringing, though, but, after a while, the  Bteeplekcoper noticed tiie difference,  too. Surmising that something might  be wTong, hc told us to stop pulling  tbe rope. Then he climbed back into  the steeple, we boys following behind.  "On the side of the bell that hung  toward Walnut Street we found that  there was a big crack, a foot'or fifteen  .inchee long. Downing then told us to  run along home. We obeyed.  : "What happened, after that I forget  --boy-like' I didn't do "any worrying,  and beard'no more about the cracking  of the bell until some years'later. Then,  however, and many**times since,'! have  read of bow the bell came to be cracked, but never have T seen the version  which I have just given. - I honestly  believe it is the eorreet one.-"   . ='   .  Investigation of what is known- regarding the cracking of the'Liberty Bell  gives considerable plausibility to Mr.  Ranch's narrative. First, there is, as  has been already mentioned, confusion  as to just how the bell was,cracked.  . It was thc custom to ring it on im  portant occasions, -notably on each re-  eurrin? Fourth of _ Jnly, but, .according  to one authority, it was not rung on  that day after 1831.' This would- explain how, if thc bell waa indeed era'ek-  ed, as Mil Ranch maintains, on February 22, 3836, the erack was not dis^  covered on the following Fourth' 7of  July.   "., ' y '    ( '.   '"  Coining to, the theory, that, the, bell  "wan cracked while tolling* for the funeral  of Chief Justiee Mar-shall, we. are reminded that: ��������������������������� ,. .  *":"While-tolling-" is an- ambiguous  phrase. .Is it not * possible, - probable  even, that, as stroke after stroke,of tbe  clapper smote the side of the bell, thoee  who "heard detected .something wrong  in the sound, exactly as did -^Downing  and hie youthful helpers in Mr. Rauch .s  narrative, and.-promptly arrived - at -_the  conclusion that the damage had-.been  done'on.that very7day,."being unaware  that"_the' hell' had-bMn' cracked before?  Iu-.view of the-unhesitating nature-, of-  Mr. Ranch's statements, this view seems  distinctly plausible!

Provincial Elections Result in  Completes Conservative Victory  In the elections last Thursday, tha  Province voted a solid Conservative  House.   The Liberals did not elect a1  man. The Socialists elected two: Mr.  Parker Williams   of   Newcastle,  and  Mr. Place of Nanaimo.       It will be  some days before the complete returns  are received,   but   it is evident the  total vote polled was comparatively  light.      The   explanation of this, of  course, was   that   the   result was a  foregone conclusion,  and consequent  ly there was a certain amount of in  difference among   the electors.   It i-  believed,  however,    that the Conser  vative percentage   of   the total vote  polled will be found to be the larges |  ever received for any political party  at a general election in Canada.  It was reported when the early returns were received that Parker Wil  Hams was defeated in Newcastle, but  later returns would indicate that he!  succeeded in   squeezing in by a close  shave, his majority being 13 instead'  of 150 which he confidently expected  In the   Okanagan,    tho Hon. Price  Ellison   polled/ about one thousand1  votes, "against 1500 three years ago.  He virtually had no opposition, only  the Sosialist candidate being in the  field against him, and there was a  general indifference shown by the electors about voting. He polled C2 at  Enderby against 25 for the Socialist.  At Mara the vote was 19 to 15.  Speaking of the result of theelec  tion the Victoria Colonist says:  "Such   a     victory   as   has     been  achieved by the government, such an  expression of confidence in its administration, such an endorsement of its  progressive   policy   carry with thera  important   lessons,   which   Mr.    Mc  Bride and his colleagues and indeed  all the Concervative members of th  House must be prompt to understan  and sincere in obeying. It has seemed  fit to the people of British Columbia  to entrust Mr.    McBride and his fellow members with the administration  of the affairs   of this great province!  all its great   problems.     This is no,  with all its enormous resources and1  light responsibility, and in the hour  of unprecedented success it is fitting  that words of soberness should be  spoken. . Vigilance . that the public  "morieys~shalF"bc faithfuily~cxpcnded7  care that thc sense of responsibility  which the members of thc government  must feel, shall permeate the ranks  of their supporters, a sense of duty  to the whole province as well as to  their own constituencies on thc part  of all thc members of the Legislature  should characterise the government  and the whole Conservative party.  At the same time it is to be borne in  mind that one thing stands out conspicuously as thc result of this election, namely that the province heartily endorses a policy ,of progress.  The electors have given to Mr.  McBride a commission to go forward  with his plans for die advancement  of their material prosperity. The  verdict was not only one of confidence in him as the man responsible  for the immediate future of British  Columbia, but also one of confidence  by British Columbians in themselves  and iu their matchless province.  "With an overflowing treasury, with  expansion observable on every hand,  with the fullest trust of thc most energetic, enterprising and progressive  people in Canada, McBride has before  him an opportunity such as has been  given, to few% public men in Canada,  an "opportunity"which~"we~are per-^  suaded he will employ to the lasting  welfare of those who have extended  to him such testimony of their reliance upon his integrity and confidence in his ability."

When spring  came on, hc was hard and fit, and  was ready to race on May 24, from  which day he raced through to late  fall nnd came home heavier than he  went away.  Tho brown pacing gelding Ritchie,  2:09.7 recently purchased by J. C.  Ward, of Toronto, is another grand  example. He made his debut on the  ice last winter when in Art Bedford's  string, ancl was almost invincible over  the frozen footing. He was staked  liberally over the half mile tracks and  during the summer made over twenty  starts, of which he won over twelve  and   was   never   behind   thc   money.  There are many others which made  successful campaigns over the dirt  after first gaining racing experience  at the ice races. Furioso, 2:C2_j, ,and  Lew Joan, 2:113, raced the past season by Jimmy Powell, are-.graduates  of the ice tracks. Game Maid, 2:07.'.,  raced by, Billy Snow down the Grand  Circuit the past season also received  her first lessons over thc ice at Ottawa, and there saw'many, other trotters and pacers which "might" be  named.       - .*���������������������������...  Thc old opinion that.. racing over  ice is hurtful to horses, is now an  opinion of thc past, ancl the time is  not far distant when Canada will have  an ice circuit of as great importance  as many of the largest American half  mile track circuits.  One of tlie best-trotters which has  crossed the border into Ontario to race  in recent years came to the Dufferin  Tec Mectingin the name of Nata Prime  2.193, owned by Prime Wright, of New  Preston, Conn.  Nata Prime is a tidy made, rather  common looking, little, low-headed  brown mare, with a perfect way of going and the best of manners. She is  one of the wiry, tough sort that will  race all day; and has a wonderful  flight of speed,  Last spring her duties varied from  hauling milk and logs to doing numerous other farm labors. However, it  was soon discovered that she was a  fast trotter, and before fall came  around she was fit and away to the  races.    She was started six times and  WHEN   BISMARCK WAS GENTLE  The French surgeon Czernicke in his  reminiscences of  the Franco-Prussian  war tells a story that seems to place  Bismarck  in  a  new  and  more gentle  liyht.     He   says:    "Seated   on    some  straw and propped up against a pillar  of  the  church  of Rezonvillc was one  of  our   poor, soldiers, >a   quite  young-  man named Rossignol.     A shell, striking him  like thc lash of a whip, had  carried   away   both   his   eyes  and   thc  bridge  of Tiis   nose,   leaving  the  front  of thc skull bare.     This fearful wound  was covered with a dressing.   - He lay  there  calm,   silent,   and  motionless,   in  quiet  resignation.       Bismarck stopped  in  front   of  him   and  asked   mo  what  was his case.   He seemed really touched.    'There is war for you, messieurs  the   senators  and     deputies!'      Then,  turning to  one of his  suite,  hc  said:  'Please   bring   mc   some   wine   and   a  glass.'     Hc filled the glass to the brim,  look  a  sip, -and   then,  gently  tapping  the   shoulder  of   the   poor  martyr,   hc  said:   'My  friend,-will   you   not  drink-  something-?'      Rousing    himself    from  thc deathlike stupor that was creeping  over him the man assented.-    Wc then  saw  Bismarck   stoop   and   very   softly  and  slowly  give  the  wounded  soldier  the  wine.      Rising again,    hc    drank  what was left in the glass, and said:  'What is your name, my boy, and where  do you como from?'    'Rossignol, from  Brittany.'      Thc  count  then  took  his  hand,  and  said:   'I am  Bismarck,  my  comrade, and T am very proud to have  drunk out of thc same glass as a brave  man like you,' and stretching his hand  over  the  horribly  mutilated   head,   he  seemed  to  give him  a' mute benediction."     -  To discern and deal immediately with  causes and overcome them, rather than  to battle with'effects after the disease  has secured a lodgment, .is the chief  aim of the medical man, and Bickle's  Anti-Consumptive Syrup* is the result  of patient study along this particular  line. At the first appearance of a cold"  the Syrup will be found-a most efficient  remedy, arresting development and  speedily healing the affected parts, so  that the ailment disappears.  This is the verdict of all who have  tried Zam-Buk. The woman in the  home knows best its value. A burn  from the''stove, from a llat iron, or a  hot pan, is instantly soothed by Zam-  Buk. When the little ones fall and  cut or scratch themselves, Zam-Buk  stops the pain and, incidentally, their  crying. The best proof of this is ^the  fact that children who have once had  Zam-Buk applied come for if again.  For more serious burns, too, it- is  unequalled. Mr. John Johnston, of  7,'M South Marks Street, Fort William,  a moulder in Copp's Foundry, says:  "Some timo ago I burned tho top of  my foot severely by dropping some  molten iron from a ladle 1 was carrying. A large hole was burned through  my shoe ancl into the top of my foot. I  was taken home, and Zam-Buk was  applied to thc burn directly. If was  surprising what relief this balm afforded. The burn was so deep and so  serious that if required careful attention but Zam-Buk prevented other  complications arising, and as it was  daily applied, soothed fho pains and  allayed   Ihe   inflammation. In   the  course of two weeks tho hole burned  in my foot had been well healed."  Mr. W. B. Gibson, of ' Belleville,  writes:* "We have tried Zam-Buk often  on cuts and sores, and I think there-  is nothing that can equal it."  Zam-Buk will also be found a sure  cure for cold sores, chapped hands,  frost bite, ulcers, blood-poison, varicose sores, piles, scalp sores, ringworm, inflamed patches, babies' eruptions and chapped places, and skin injuries generally.

He smiled at  her with big brotherly approval, and  inspected hor programme.  "Two dances'to fix up," hc remark-'  ed. "Whom shall I introduce, Cinderella?"  lier eyes wandered round the room  till Ihey fell upon a very tall, dark  man, who had not danced yet. He was  thc finest figure in a room of fine men.  "Who is that big fellow?" she asked.  Her  cousin  followed  her  eyes.   His  smile nickered, and went out. He drew  " a deep breath, looked harder at the tall  man, and drew another.  "Good heavens!" he ejaculated.  "A prince in masquerade?" Mary  inquired.  "in masquerade," her cousin agreed  grimly, "but not exactly a prince! The  nerve of the scoundrel to come here!  I may 'be mistaken, but���������������������������upon my soul,  it is Kenny!"   /  ��������������������������� "Who is Kenny?" the girl asked. She  was new to the colony.  "Dick Kenny, the bushranger. There's  five hundred pounds on his head!"  Mary took another look at the big  stranger, immaculately clad in evening dress. The stranger looked for a  moment at her. His cold eyes seemed  to catch lire suddenly.  "Introduce him!" she lold her cousin.  The colonial secretary's well-trained  face almost betrayed surprise.  "Well," he observed, "you women are  curious ^creatures! Do you want to  say that you've danced with a man  who's  been  hanged?"  "A hanged lion is better than a live  donkey," said Mary, "and he isn't  liiino"ccl yet!"-  "He  will   be  within  a  month,"   her  cousin  asserted,  "if I'm not mistaken  in him.   I must go and find the chief  of police, and see what he thinks.    If  he agrees 'with me, I shall get a warrant for the man's arrest from H. E."'  The staff always spoke of his excellency   thc  governor  in   initials.   "If  you  see H. E. go out suddenly, you'll know  " ,' that you won't get a dance with your  friend.   He looks as cool as a cucumber!"  .-   "He .looks belter to dance with than  to hang," Mary protested, with a toss  - of her wilful head.       ��������������������������� ..*,  --- : "."Well,-you aren't going to dance with  him,  Miss: Featherbrain!

"Considering that you only arrived  last mail," hc remarked, "you seem to  know most of the best! I wish I could  have asked you for half a dozen dances  instead of"6ne; but a poor wretch of  an A. D. C. has to look after the "wallflowers, not thc roses, you know. Who  is -the first- lucky man 1 may introduce?"  Mary laughed.  "1 am so small," she said.    "It would  " be   amusing   to   dance  with   that   big  man!"    She indicated the tall stranger.  "Who is hc?"  "Hanged  if  I 'know!"  the A. D.  C.  confessed.

I only came  last week."  "No doubt people were curious about  you," he said.  "I was thinking rather of you," she  retorted. "1 have heard two guesses  about you already."  There was a trace of emphasis in her  tone; and the stranger raised his eyebrows a trifle.  "Tou mean lo tell me the guesses,  I  fancy?"   he said.   "Don't you?"  She nodded.  "Prince; and���������������������������bushranger!" she said.  Thc stranger started slightly.  "As bad as that?" he protested.  "As bad as lhat," she declared. "You  mustn't be surprised if you are called  upon to account for yourself."  She laughed, but her eyes were keen.  The stranger answered her eyes, instead of her laugh.  "Shall I glean wisdom from that remark?"  he asked quietly.  "There is wisdom in it," she told  him. "But���������������������������" She glanced over her  shoulder into the ballroom. The govr  ernor was still dancing, she observed.  "But no doubt you' are ready to account  for yourself?"  The stranger looked steadily at her.  "To be frank with you," he owned,  "I am not."  Mary drew a deep breath.  "Then," she said, "if I were you, 1  think���������������������������I think I should watch-the governor. If a servant comes to him, and  ho goes out quickly���������������������������I think, if I were  you, I should go quickly too!"  The stranger stretched himself.  "There is a fatal objection to that,"  he said. "I should lose my second  dance with you."  "You might lose that anyhow," she  remarked, with a touch of seriousness.  "If you cannot account for yourself,  you can hardly expect me to dance  with you."  "I am prepared to account for myself to you," he told her gravely, "and  I desire to do so. I do not propose to  account for myself to these other people, whatever thc consequences of my  refusal."  "I gather that you anticipate consequences that may be awkward?" " *  "Awkward, perhaps,". he agreed.  "Yes;-but if you force me to encounter  them, I must do so."   .  "I.cannot help your staying, if you  arc so foolish."    .,        * .  "Pardon me!    You can help my stay-  ingby .giving me another opportunity  to  explain."

"Then I shall stay to clairn'my dance,  and the consequences."   . "  She' looked over her shoulder* into  the ballroom again  "A servant has" just-come to. the  governor," she said breathlessly. "He  is reading a note���������������������������he is going out���������������������������oh,  go!    Do go!"  "By. the second fort," he begged.  "To-morrow afternoon, at four.

I should feel responsible for���������������������������  for the awkward .consequences. Do  you think you ought to ask me to meet  a���������������������������a man who .cannot account for himself?"  "I throw myself upon- your generosity, little lady," he said. "We are  people who do not go by reason, you  and I.   Will you meet me?"  "I cannot," she began. "I���������������������������" There  was a rustle.   Her cousin approached  I'll .find out his name from a steward,  and do him a service!"  Hc returned shortly with the big  stranger, whom hc introduced as Mr.  Graham. Mr. Graham promptly asked  for a dance; and when he saw Mary's  card ancl found' two vacancies, he asked for both���������������������������the next dance, and one  toward  the  end.    Sho  gave  them.  "Rut il is almost too hot to dance,"  she protested.  "Shall Yvo~sirthis"ono"bul," he proposed, "if it isn't loo hoi lo lalk?"

Uemembcr  that, if 1 do lalk. There's wisdom to  bo gleaned from my conversation,"  "1 will endeavor to glean," the tall  stranger promised.  They went out upon the balcony together, and sat facing the sea. There  was a great spangle of stars in the  sky; and afar in the harbor was a  spangle of ship's lights.  "11 is good to be out in the open  air," he remarked. "A room always  seems to me like a prison."  "I have never tried a prison," said  Mary.    "Have  you?" "*���������������������������  She looked up at him artlessly.  "Not at present," he told  her.  "I dare say you've deserved it?" she  suggested.  "I dare say," he agreed; "but you  guess it quickly."  No Rest With Asthma.���������������������������Asthma  usually attacks at night, the one time  whon rest is needed most. Hence the  loss of strength, tho nervous debility,  the loss of flesh and other evils which  must bo expected unless relief Is secured. Fortunately relief is possible.  Dr. J. D. Kellogg's Asthma Remedy  has proved its merit through years of  service. A trial will surely convince  yoa.  between some palms. She suppressed  a scream. "Yes, then," sho agreed. She  rose, fluttering.   "Go now!"  "At four to-morrow afternoon, then?"  he persisted.  "At four," she whispered, just" as her  cousin stood in front of them.  "I have been looking for you, Mary,"  ho said coldly.  The stranger rose and bowed.   The  colonial secretary bowed stiflly, and led  -thc-glrl-away,     - -*   "You Utile fool!" hc reproached her.  "You headstrong little fool! The governor is signing the warrant now. It  is Kenny. He'll be arrested in five  minutes. It would havo been done  now, if I hadn't had lo gel you away  first. You tiresome Utile thing! The  governor Is going lo speak lo you tomorrow morning. You'll havo a bad  ten minutes with him."  Mary laughed scornfully.  "I've had a good ten minutes with a  man," she said; "and I know he doesn't  deserve hanging.",..  "Well," her cousin retorted, "he'll  hang. There go the men with the warrant." He whispered to them as they  passed. "Out on the balcony." Then  he hurried his cousin away.  They did not find the stranger on the  balcony, or anywhere. He had disappeared. Mary saw thom come back  alone. She was dancing then, and her  partner asked why she laughed.  "It must be my happy disposition,"  she answered gaily. "I often laugh at  nothing!"  "A jolly little creature, lhat Miss  Travers," he told a friend afterwards,  "but nothing inside her pretty little  head, I should think."  Her cousin was of much the same  opinion. In fact, he said so lo his excellency the governor, by way of apology.  "She doesn't mean any harm," he  declared, "but she's utterly reckless  and thoughtless. She gets it from her  Irish mother, and the national sympathy for outlaws with It! He's humbugged her into thinking that he's an.  ill-used person, and she's promised to  meet him at four to-morrow afternoon.  I only heard the time, not the place.  Wilh your permission, 1 propose to  watch her and follow, with the chief  of police and one or two fellows who'll  hold their tongue. We'll take him  quietly; and it will be a lesson to her."  "Very well," his excellency agreed;  "but we shall find her a handful here!  You'd better tell her people to send for  her to come home.    The lillie minx!"  "She doesn't think," her cousin said  apologetically.  That was where he made a mistake.  Mary thought a 'good deal, and her  smiling eyes wero observant, lt occurred to her, soon after lunch, that  she was being watched. She guessed  at once that hor cousin had heard the  hour of appointment, and intended to  capture tlie outlaw through her. She  thought the matter over carefully, with  much biting of her pretty lips, and  finally she told her faithful Irish maid  the whole story.  "He's too fine a figure of a man to  hang, Biddy, my dear," she said; "and  I'm sure he isn't really bad. I'll go  riding out on the sands the other side  of the town and draw them off. You  must go out to the second fort and  meet 'him. You'll know him by the  bigness of the creature. You can just  go up and ask him if he's 'come to  claim a dance. Then you can tell him  lhat I'm giving the dance to-those who  are after him, arid that he must go  away' as fast he can. If he likes,  he may write his explanation and send  it to you, and you'll give it to me. You  must say that he owes his life to me,  and that what he does with it will go  clown to my account; ancl I expect a  good ^balance from him. 'She leaves  it to your honor." Tell him that, Biddy, my dear."  "Sure, Miss Molly," Biddy protested,  "you leave it to a broken reed! If anyone had told me but yourself, I'd be  after getting the dirty reward; but you  need have no fear, Missie darlin', since  he's'a friend of yours. -vAnd, from what  I hear, he only shot a rent-collector  and a customs officer, and that's no  great sin!"  . Biddy started off soon after half past  three. A quarter of an hour later Mary  went out on one of her cousin's horses.

His excellency nodded several times.  "A life sentence," he said with a  slow smile, "to the dignities of a princess!"  "But," Mary protested, "his���������������������������his sovereign can't make me marry him!"  "No," said the governor; "but I think  he can!"  "Oh!" said Mary. "Oh-h-h! Popr,  unfortunate man!"

Darwin surprised the general reading-public - by his revelations" of thc  indispensable role played by the humble earth-worm in cultivating the soil.  He, showed how the strength of a  pigmy was changed ' into that of a  giant by the virtue of numbers and of  industry, so that the richest soil was  turned over and over again by the  labors of earth-worms and thus kept  in a fertile condition  When Nostrils are Plugged  Your Catarrh is Bad  BY    ACTING    TO-DAY    YOU    CAN  QUICKLY CURE CATARRH AND  AVOID   BRONCHITIS,  PERHAPS CONSUMPTION  Most   Agreeable   and   Surest   Cure   is  Catarrhozone, Which Cures Every  Curable  Case  Catarrhozone proves especially good  in those chronic cases where mucous  drops down the throat, sickens the  stomach, and pollutes the breath.

TRIUMPHANT  FROM   EVERY  TEST  AN INGENIOUS EXPLORER  To make an accurate description of  the route taken through an unknown  country requires an amount of hard  and incessant labor of which few people have any conception. An instance  in point may be taken from the explorations of William Junker in central  Africa.  This man, a Russian by birth, spent  five years endeavoring to trace thc  course of the River Welle, which lies  between the head-waters of the Nile  and the Congo, with a view lo determining the position of the watershed  between the two rivers.  When actually on the march he wore  a coat designed by himself, having,  numerous large and small pockets especially arranged for the handy use  of his watch, compass, aneroid, thermometer, and notebooks. Fro*xi one of  its buttons hung three pencils; one  red for marking his route, another blue  for noting the rivers and streams, the  third black for recording the times of  Ernest St. Pierre tells how they rescued him from the tortures of  Backache and Bright's Disease  Le Petit Bois Franc, Tcmiscouta Co.,  Que.���������������������������(Special)���������������������������-Ernest St. Pierre, a  well-known farmer of this place, is  telling his neighbors of his almost  miraculous cure, from Bright's Disease,  and he always.winds up with:  "I advise all persons suffering* from  Backache or Bright's Disease to use  Dodd's Kidney Pills." For like thousands of other sufferers in Canada Mr.  St. Pierre found his cure in the good  old Canadian Kidney remedy.  And his indeed was a particularly  bad case. His eyes were puffed and  swollen, his appetite was fitful and he  was always tired and nervous, while  the pains in his back made any form  of work something to be avoided. Today he is strong ancl well. Six boxes  of Dodd's Kidney Pills worked the  transformation.  More and more in this neighborhood  is it becoming a motto, "If the disease  is of the kidneys or from the kidneys,  Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure it." They  have been tried in many cases of backache, rheumatism, lumbago and  Bright's disease, ancl in no case whero  they have been given a fair trial have  they failed to cure.  1 if  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, April 4, 1912  Sure ana prompt  Delivery on date promised  You can  order Clothes by mail  through us���������������������������  REAL genuine Semi-ready  Clothes made to your  own special order and exact  physique type measurements.

Many of these competitions will be  open only to German and Austrian  airmen, the central idea being to develop flying for the exclusive benefit  of the two" great allied armies.  The World's Best Flying'Camps".  In Johnnisthal-Berlin and in Doberitz, the German' Aidershot, the  Fatherland has a pair of "flying-  camps" challenging comparison with  the best in the world. At Johannisthal, an enclosed field of SOO acres,  there ars now 102 pupils at work, including a German baroness and a  Russian princess, and seventy machines are in service. Thirty pupils  are military officers. At Doberitz  exclusively army airmen are trained.  Instruction includes long practice observation cruises across country.  Brilliant flights ��������������������������� Berlin-Hamburg  and return -without intermediate  landing, Berlin-Stettin and back,  and kindred feats���������������������������are of frequent  occurrence. German army airmen  are trained to travel in pairs���������������������������one  for steering, the other for observation. Both must be pilots. A German firm has just placed an "armored aeroplane" at the War' Office's  disposal. It is said to demonstrate  that flying craft can be successfully  protected against rifle ancl light shell  Ore. Doberitz airmen are also practicing zealously with the carrying  and dropping of explosives, but the  results of their perpendicular target-  practice are hermetically sealed.  A Great Aeroplane Fleet.  Many more young officers are volunteering for the new arm than the  War Oflice can possibly use. Army  orders for aeroplanes are rapidly putting the construction industry on a  sound commercial basis. If the  Reichstag were suddenly to pass a  inige 'aerial programme,' it would  find that the plant exists capable of  carrying it out. There is talk in ofli-  2ial" circles of a scheme of government subsidies for privately owned  aeroplanes, such as now exists with  regard to motor-cars. If this project sl.ould materialize, Germany will  become possessed of an air "fleet  which need not fear a brush.with the  "most powerful rival."* -' ~ "  PUT A RING AROUND IT  If you  to sell  List it with me in  - "time "for"my new  booklet, soon to  be issued.
