Tommy Syers, of Penticton, who  caught for Enderby at Kelowna and  Enderby in the game with Vernon,  was behind the bat for Vernon in the  game against Kamloops at the latter  place last Friday. The game was  hard-fought by the Kamloops team,  but they could not win out against  -Vernoii's -combination- und-the- game  went to Vernon by a score of 10-4.  This is quite a feather in the cap of  the Okanagan league. It indicates  that we have been having good baseball this season. Incidentally, it indicates that our Enderby baseball  boys have been there with the goods.  The game at Kamloops was played  by the same line-up, with thc "exception of Syers, as was played against  Enderby two weeks ago, when Vernon  went down to Enderby by a score of  9-4. It would be pleasant to see some  more such baseball.  Dr. -.Elliot S. Rowe'  Rowe, Publicity Commissioner of the  Progress Club,." was in Enderby, on.

vuice, "J have no right to touch you.
In live minutes, you will probably not
even let me speak to you. I had no
right to speak.' I had no right to tell
you that 1 loved you!"
She did not draw away. She only
looked  into  his  eyes very solemnly.
"Vou had no right?" she repented,
in a bewildered voice. "Don't you
love me?"
"���������Vou don't have to ask that," ho
���������avowed. "Vou know it. Your own
heart can answer such questions."
"Then," she decreed with womanlike
philosophy, "you had a right to say so

"Xo," ho expostulated,  "J   toll you 1

"It is too late," she said simply.
"Forget!" There was an indignant
ring in her words. "Do you think
lhat I could forget���������or that, if I could,
-I would? Do you think it is a thing
that happens every day?"

To Saxon's ears, the inconsequential sounds came with a painful distinctness. It was only his own voice
that seemed to him muflled in a confusion of roaring noises.   Hi.s lips were
- so  dry  lhat  he hail   to  moisten  them
with his tongue.
To   hesitate,   to   temporize,   even   to
soften his recital, would mean another
failure  in the  telling  of  it.   He must
.   plunge in after his old method of dir-
ceclness,   eve*i   brutality,   without  preface or palliation.

she turned from him with loathing,
at least anger would hurt her less
than heartbreak. ���������

and assassin  and  the  firing squad  in

with  a nauseating sense  of  certainty
that his brain had nover really doubted   his  identity.    He  had   futilcly  argued   with   himself,   but   it   was   only
his  eagerness  of wish   that  had  kept
clamoring concerning the possibility of
a  favorable  solution.      All   the while,
hi.s  reason  had   convicted   him.    Now,
as he spoke,  he felt sure, as sure as
though he could really remember, and
he foil also his unworthiness to speak-
to her,  as though  it were not Saxon,
but Carter, who held her in his arms.
He   suddenly   stepped   back   and   held
h_r away af arms'  length, as  though
he, Saxon, were snatching her from the
embrace   of   the   other   man,   Carter.

"And so," he said calmly at the end,
"fhe possibility that I vaguely feared

that I know of my other life is a disgraceful thing���������and ruin."
There was a long, torturing silence
as she sat steadily, almost hypnotically, gazing into his eyes.
Then, a remarkable thing happened.
The girl camo lo her feet with the old
lithe grace that had for the moment
forsaken her, leaving her a shape of
slender distress. She rose buoyantly
and laughed! With a quick step forward, she threw her arms around his

In the white light, her upturned eyes
were sure with confidence.
"Now, you listen," she ordered.

She said it all so positively, so much
with tho manner of.a decree from the
supreme bench, that,1 for a moment, the
ghosts of hope began to rise and
gather in the man's brain; for a moment, h(P forgot that this was not
really  the  final  word.
He had crucified himself in fhe recital to make il. easier'for her to abandon him. I-Ie had told one side only,
and she had seen only the force of
what he had left unsaid. Tf that could
be-possible, it might be possible she
was right. With the reaction came
������i wild momentary joyousness. Then,
his face grew grave again.
"J had sworn by every oafh I knew,"
he told her, "that I would speak no
word of love to you until I "was no
longer anonymous. 1 must go to Pour-
to  Frio at once and determine it."
Her arms tightened about his neck,
and she stood there, her hair brushing
his face, as though she would hold him
away from everything past and future
except her own bean.
"Xo! no!" she passionately dissented.    "Even if you wero the man, which

When he reached the cabin Saxon
found Steele still awake, The gray advance-light of dawn beyond the eastern ridges had grown rosy and the

of living day when an early teamster,
passing along the turnpike, saw two
men garbed in what he would have
called "full-dress suits," still sitting
over their cigars on lhe verandah of
the hill shack. A losing love either ox-
pels ;l man into tlie outer sourness of
resentment, or graduates him inlo a
friendship that needs no further testing. Steele was not the type that goes
into an embittered exile. His face had
become somewhat fixed as he listened,
but there had been no surprise. Ho
had known already, and-whon the story
was ended, he was an ally,
"There are two courses open to you,"
ho said, when he rose at last from his
seat, "the plan you have of going to
South America, and the one I suggested of 'acing forward and leaving the
pas behind If you do the first,
whether or not you arc the man they

Saxon, "solves nothing."
"Why solve them?" Steele paused at
his door. "It would seem to mo that
with her in ygur life you would be
safe against forgetting your present at
all events���������and that prosent is enough."
The summer was drawing to its
close while Saxon still wavered. "Unless he faced the charge that seemed
impending near the equator, he must
always stand, before imself at least,
convicted. Yet, Duska was immovable
in her decision, and Steele backed her
intuition wilh so many plausible,- masculine arguments that he waited. He
was packing and preparing the pictures
that were to be shipped to New York.
Some of them would be exhibited and
sold Ihere. Others, to be selected by
his eastern agent, would go on to the"
Paris market. He had included the
landscape painted on the cliff, on the
day when the purple flowers lured him
over lho e:lg*e, and th'e portrait oi" the
girl. These pictures, however, he
specified, were only for exhibition, and
wer not under any circumstances to
be sold.
Each day, hc insisted on the necessity of his investigation, and argued il
with all the forccfulness he could command, but Duska steadfastly overruled
Once, as the sunset dyed the west
with the richness of gold and purple
and orange and lake, they were walking' their horses along a hill lane between pines and cedars. The girl's
eyes wore drinking in the color and
abundant beauty, and the man rode
silent, al her saddle skirl. She had
silenced his continual argument after
her usual decisive fashion. Now, she
turned her head, and demanded:

would you be nearer your certainty?

"It would "mean ih'is much," he argued. "I should have followed to its

should have exhausted the possibilities, and I could then with a clear'conscience leave the rest to" destiny. I
could go on feeling* that.] bad a right

"I should," hc urged, ."feel that in

She raised her chin almost scornfully  and   her  eyes  grew  deeper.
"Do y u think thai danger can affect

and die, nnd never have a hint of loving as, the gods love? 1 want to love

#very chance, If the stars up there
love, they love like that."
Some days later, Mrs. Horton again
referred to her wish lo make the trip
to Venezuela. To the man's astonishment, Duska appeared this time more
than half in favor of'ii, and.spoke as
though she might after all .reconsider
her refusal to be her aunt's travelling
companion. Later, when they were
alone, he questioned her, and she laughed with the note of having a profound
secret.    At last, she explained.
"1 am interested in South America,
now," she informed him. "I wasn't before. I shouldn't think of letting you
go there, but Jguess I'm safe in Puerto
Frio, and T might settle your doubts
myself. Vou see," she added judicially,
"I'm the one person you can trust nol
to bctrav your secret, and yet to find
out all about this mysterious Mr.
Saxon was frankly frightened. "Unless she promised* that she would do
nothing of the sort, ho would himself
go at once. He had waited in deference to her wishes, but, if tho thing
.were.fu be recognized as-dusei'ving-investigation at all, he must do it himself. He could not protect himself behind her as his agent. She finally assented, yet later .Mrs. Horton once more
referred lo the idea of the trip a.s
though she expected Duska to accompany her.
Then it was that Saxon was driven
back on strategy. The idea was one
that he found il. hard to accept, yet he
knew that he could never gain her consent, and her suggestion proved that,
though she would not admit it, at heart
she realized the necessity of a solution. Tho hanging of his canvases for
exhibition afforded nn excuse for going
to New York. On his arrival there,
ho would write to her, explaining* his
determination to take a steamer for
the south, and "put it to the touch, lo
win or lose it all." There seemed to be
no alternative.
He did not take Steele into his confidence, because Steele agreed with
Duska, and should bo able lo say, when
questioned, that he had not boon a
party to the conspiracy. When Saxon
stood, a few days later, on the step of
an inbound train, the girl stood waving hor sunbonnet, slentlerly outlined
against tho green background of the
woods beyond the flag-station. A
sudden look of pain crossed the man's
face, and he leaned far out for a last
glimpse of her form.
Steele saw Duska's smile grow wistful as the last ear rounded the curve.
"I can't quite accustom myself to it,"
ho said, slowly; "this new girl who has
taken thc place of the other, of the girl
who did not know how to love,"
"I know more about it," she declared,
"than  anybody   else  that   ever   lived.
And I've only one life to give to it."
Saxon's first mistake was born of the
precipitate haste "of love. He wrote
the letter to Duska that same evening
on the train. It was a difficult letter
to write. He had to explain, and explain convincingly, that Ue was disobeying her expressed command only,
because his love was not the sort that
could lull itself into false security. If
fate held any chance for him, he would
bring back victory. If he laid the
ghost of Carter, he would question his
sphinx no further.
The writing was premature, because
he had to slop in Washington and seek
Ribero. He had some questions to ask.
But at Washington ho learned that Ribero had beon recalled by government.
Thon, hurrying through his business in
New York, Saxon took the first steamer sailing. It happened li be a slow
line, necessitating several transfers.
lt was characteristic of Duska lhat,
when she received the letlcr hardly a
day after Saxon's departure, she did
not at once open it, but, slipping it, dis-
patch-Mke, into her belt, sho called the
terrier, and together thoy went into
the woods. Here, silling,among the
ferns with the blackberry thicket at
her back and the creek laughing below,
she read and reread the pages.
Por a while she sat stunned, her
brow drawn; then, she said to the terrier in a voice as nearly plaintive as
sho ever allowed it to bc:
"1 don't like it. 1 don't want him
ever to go away���������and yet���������" she tossed
her head upward���������"yet, I guess- I
shouldn't ha.ve much use for him if he
didn't do just such things."
The terrier evidently approved the
sentiment, for he cocked his head
gravely lo lho side, and slowly wagged
his slump tail.
But the girl did not remain long in
idleness. For a time, her. forehead
was delicately corrugated, under the
stress of rapid thinking as she sat, her
lingers clasped about her updrawn
knees, then sho rose and hurried lo
Horton Houses There were things lo
be done and done at once, and it was
her fashion, once reaching resolution,
to act quickly.  '*
II was characteristic of Duska that,
lon into her full confidence, because it
was necessary that Mrs. I-Iorton should
bc ready to go with her, as fast as
trains and steamers could carry' them,
to a town called Pucrto<Frio in South
America, and South America was
quite a long way off. Mrs. Horton had
known for weeks Lhat something* more
was transpiring than showed on the
surface. She had even inferred that
there was 'an understanding" between
her niece and the painter, and this inference she had hot" found displeasing.
The story that Duska told did astonish
her, but tinder hor'composure of manner Mrs. Morton had the ability to act
with prompt decision. - Mr. - Horton
knew" "only part," but "was complacent,
ancl saw'no reason why a trip planned
for a later date should not .be-"advanced on tho docket," and il was so
Steele, of course, already know most
of the story, and iL was he who kept
tbe telephone busy between the house
and the city ticket-office, i While Lhe
ladies packed, he was acquiring vast
information as lo schedules and connections.. He learned tha t\ they could
catch an outgoing steamer from Now
Orleans, which would probably put
them at their destination only a day
or two behind Saxon. Incidentally, in
maki ', those arrangements, Steele reserved accommodations for himself as
well as Mrs. Horton and her niece.

trade winds, was insufferably hot. The
slenderly filled passenger-list gave the
sligl t alleviation of an uncrowded ship.

the twentieth parallel, whero nothing
seemed cool enough for energy or
moLion except the flying fish and thc
pursuing gull.
There were several days of this to be
endured, and the painter, thinking of
matters further north and further
south, found no delight in ils beauty.
He would stand, deep in thought, at
tho bow when day died and night was
born without benefit of twilight, watching lhe disk of the sun plunge into the
sea liko a diver. It seemed thai Nature
herself was here sudden and passionate
in mailers of life and death. He saw
Lhe stars come out, low-hanging and
large, and the waters blaze with phosphorescence wherever a wave broke,
brilliantly luminous whero the propeller churned lho wake. Tl was to
hini an ominous beauty, fraught wilh
crowding portents of ill omen.
The entering and leaving of ports became monotonous. Each was a
steaming village of hot adobe walls,
corrugated-iron custom houses and
sweltering, ragged palms. AL last, at
a town no more or less appealing than
tho other", just as tho car-splitting
whistle screeched its last warning of
departure, a. belated passenger came
over the side from a frantically-driven
rowboat. The painter was looking
listlessly out at Lhe green coast line,
and  did  not notice tfio new arrival.
Tho newcomer followed his luggage
up the gangway to the deck, his forehead streaming perspiration, his none-
too-fresh gray flannels spashed with
salt water. At the top, he shook the
hand of the second officer, with the
manner of an old acquaintance.
"I guess that was close!" ho announced, as he mopped his face with a
large handkerchief, and began fanning
himself with a stained Panama hat.
'Did the���������the stuff get aboard all right
at New York?" .
Tho officer looked up, with a quick,
cautious glance about him.
"Thc machinery is slowed away in
the hold," he announced.
"Good," said the newcomer, energetically.      "That machinery must be
safeguarded. It is required in the development of a country that needs de-
velopin'v Do I draw my usual stateroom?   See the purser?   Good!"
The tardy passenger was tall, a bit
under six feet, but thin almost to
emaciation. His face was keen, and
might have been handsome except that
the alertness was suggestive of the fox
or the wtasel���������furtive rather than intelligent. The eyes were quick-seeing
and roving; the nose, aquiline; the lips,
thin. On them sat habitually a half-
salirical smile. The man had black
hair sprinkled with gray, yet he could
not have boen more than thirty-six or
'I'll just run in and seo the purser,"
hc announced, with his tireless energy.
Saxon, turning from thc hatch, caught
only a vanishing glimpse of a tall,
flannel-clad figure disappearing into
lho doorway of the main saloon, as ho v
himself went lo his stateroom to freshen himself up for dinner.
As the painter emerged from his
cabin a fow minutes before the call of
the dinner-bugle, the thin man was
lounging against lho rail further aft.
Saxon stood for a moment drinking
in lhc grateful coolness thai was creeping into the air with the freshening of
the evening breeze.
The stranger saw him, and started.
Then, he looked again with the swift
comprehensiveness that belonged to his
keen eyes, and stepped modestly back
into Lhe protecting angle where he
could himself bo sheltered from view
by the bulk of a tarpaulined life-boat.
When Saxon turned and strolled .aft, ���������
the man closely followed these movements, then -went into his own cabin.  .'
That evening, at dinner, thc new passenger did not appear. He dined in his
stateroom, but later, as Saxon lounged
with his own thoughts on the deck, the
tall American was nover far away,
though ho kept always in tho blackest
shadow thrown by boats or superstructure on the moonlit deck.1 If
Saxon turned suddenly, the other would
flatten himself furtively and in-evident
alarm back into the blackness. He had
the manner of a man who is hunted,
and who has recognized a pursuer.
Saxon,  ignorant even of the other's
presence, had no knowledge 'of ihe interest he was himself exciting. *    Had

Puerto Frio sits back of its harbor, a

line, a few steamers come to anchor-

water-eaten rocks, where the surf runs
with a cannonading of breakers, and
losses back a perpetual lather of infuriated spray. From the mole Saxon
had his first near view of the city. He
drew a long inhalation of the hot air.
and looked anxiously about him.
Ho had been asking himself during
the length of his journey whether a
reminder would bo borne in on'his senses, and awaken them to a throb of
familiarity. I-Ic had climbed lhe slippery landing stairs with the oppressing
consciousness that ho might stop at.

and forgotten world. Now, he drew to i
one side, and swept his eyes question-
ingly about.
Before him .stretched a broad open
space, through which the dust swirled
hot and indolent. Beyond lay the Plaza
of Santo Domingo, and on the twin
towers of its church two crosses leaned
dismally askew. A few barefooted
natives slouched across the sun-refracting square, their shadows blue
against the yellow heat. Saxon's gaze
swung steadily about the radius of
sight, but his brain, like a paralyzed;
nerve, touched with the testing-electrode, gave no reflex���������no response.

The Johnson-Richardson Co., Limited, Montreal,
-A I-IE speculation in real estate in
"Western Canada, says Fred. "W.
Field in Monetary Times, is a
menace to the country's prosperity, lt
is a skip at the maintenance of Canadian credit, lt is retarding the proper
yrowth of lown������ and cities which deserve better treatment. It is placing',
in a country ot" millions of spare acres,
a home beyond the reach of thc artisan.
It is putting* lands which should be
tilled by market gardeners into,
thoughtless speculators' hands. Thc
.situation is unnatural. Unscrupulous
real estate brokers have blown wild
talk into the speculative balloon until
thoir lungs are weak.
After an extensive trip through tho
prairie provinces and British Columbia,
the impression' gathered is this: Suddenly, without warning, five thousand
men realized the immense possibilities
existing in Canada," what a wonderful
country it will be ten, fifteen years
hence. They immediately proceeded to
gather clients selling Canadian land
futures, and discounting them unreasonably, alarmingly, criminally. Men
have made money in the west by holding lands which, ten years ago, perhaps, they could not sell. Men have
made money despite themselves. Men
with vision have held their property,
sold it for a modest profit, repurchased
at an advanced price, sold it again,
chuckling* meantime, and have yet lived to chide themselves for not holding
for another two, years. Men have tilled
farm land till Lhe city has rubbed
shoulders with -it. Bight or ten years
ago, corner lots in .Regina, Edmonton,
Calgary, Saskatoon and elsewhere went
bogging for purchasers. Legitimate
and rapid growth has trebled, and
more, their value.
In a country, where nation-building
is thc first work, art and duty; where
railroad steel is laid by hundred miles
every, year; where acreage under"cultivation increases af a great pace;
where new population coming in thousands'is part of the-life; where natural resources make a strong foundation;
where outside.capital flows unceasingly; where, in a word, growth is the
order of the day, there must be a
natural increase in land values. The
recognition of this fact is the basis of
the present speculation. The unfavorable factor is a" floating army of land
sharks, discounting that fact ag'aiii and
again^' until the holders , of. hundreds
of acres and thousands -of so-called
city/and**-town-- lots have flheir money
locked in land." -They cannot ~sell "except to" those who 'are equally 'as "or
more foolish'than themselves. 7--"" y
.The .worst'feature is thc sale of .outside subdivisions. This .consists of-the
purchase'-- "by.' - promoters of -farm- or
waste" lands at a few hundred .dollars
per acre, and their sale on the strength
of imaginative literature, -at so much
per city lot. The. possibility-'of. an-incoming railroad or car system, the
ejection1 of a" roundhouse, is seized .by
the vendors as a selling argument,
magnified and.distorted. The.prospective buyer, far distant, -is led to believe that hc i.s offered valuable lots
in a town which will bo a city of importance beforo the stars have twinkled
again. In reality, he is defrauded with
lots surrounding a railroad station and
a few wooden" shacks,,"or lots anywhere
from'five'to ten miles from. the real
town's' centre. A western cabinet minister pointed to farm lands the other
day, sold at ridiculously high prices,
as city lots, upon which hc predicted
houses would not bc built until 1950,
or 1925 at the earliest,
The investor in Eastern Canada and
alleged subdivision lots of value 'are
not being purchased by the men on thc
spot. The reason is'that the salesmen
have sufficient sanity not to offer them
there, and the men on the spot have
enough sense not to buy them.
If the methods adopted by the real
estate pirates are legally correct, they
are morally damnable. Blue prints,
maps and pictures aro drawn and
painted without regard to scnle. Hills,
Hat-1 and.- brush;_Avalcr, all "look ""alike."
City halls and union depots are made
to' wander milos from thoir permanent
homos in serve the purpose of tlio subdivision salesman. Look into the store
windows, rented by the men who are
gambling with Canada's future, and
immediately a selling tout will pull the
coat-tail, endeavoring to entice the in-
riiilrcr into a maze of statistical optimism nnd a shower bath of hind falsehoods. These men' arc far worse than
racetrack touts. They are mortgaging
to the hilt thc country and tho country's savings. They arc insects, flit-
ling from point to point, according to
the speculative climate of the moment.
They sell by misrepresentation. They
encourage a dangerous pastime, which
leads men never lo expect to make a
second payment. To gel their equity
and a profit, and pass on their second
payment���������that is all they anticipate.
p]ach man who sells is building a stairway, every step of which is faulty, and
is leading to thc crash.
"We cannot do more than warn the
investor. There are al least 2,500 reliable bank managers who will unhesitatingly advise as to thc worth of proposed real estate purchases. Therer
are reputable financial journals always
willing* lo offer sound counsel. Tho Edmonton and Calgary boards of trade,
and others, have, endeavored to secure
legislation to stop this land riot, but
without success. Their action is none
the less commendable. The investor
must now, as always, get the best advice possible, and use his common-
sense.   He cannot be warned here too
strongly against the brigands who are
seducing him with misrepresentation
and doing the entire country considerable harm.
For a moment consider tho manner
in which this land gambling checks the
progress which our splendid towns and
cities deserve.' Tho workingman, the
factory hand, responds to the call of
tho west. He is hired at a fair wage.
1-Je seeks a home. Turning to the east
end, hc walks to fhe end of the car
line. Dwelling sites along tho route
are held by speculators for future store
sites. Accepting the fact that he must
buy the farm land beyond, he finds it
subdivided into town lots at prices he
cannot consider. Going still further,
he discovers his final alternative, acreage divided into 25-foot lots at high
prices, many miles from transportation
facilities and far from his labor. Thus,
the'employer of labor and the employee
are both-severely handicapped. The
latter may have to "take rooms" nearer
the city, a proceeding which is disgraceful in a country which should be
able .to afford a home and a lot of fifty
feet lo every man who is willing to
Again, the garden grower may think
a certain city and 'district a good market for his vegetables'. Hc has to follow tho footsteps of the workingman,
and beyond. Even content, io go far
distant, he* discovers market garden
lands being sold,at a thousand or.more
instead of a few hundred 'dollars. That
is one reason why Canada is importing
onions, cabbage and the vegetables
which should be.grown by lhe ton in
such excellent soil as we, have.
Professional men are taxed -beyond
reason for homes. "Young men lose the
ambition ever to get - a home. . The
whole economic structure is being
stretched and strained by land rol^
bers, who will skip-to other'fields at
lhe first sign of the'breaking storm.''
Fortunately, the sound business and
financial men of.Canada.are .unanimous
as to the ii desirability o'f these conditions. Our banks'are* no party.to this
mad gambling. Indeed/.they.- are _the
strongest (check upon it. The- sooner
the speculative balloon collapses, '.the
belter will it be for the country.    '.
These are lhe facls as we find them.

WHAT IS A SARDINE?-   -    -

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

If a merchant were to open for business with a stock valued at $100,000,  and made no provision to advertise  what he had for sale, or to tell of  the attractions possessed, by him,  other than that which he could pay  ! for after all other running expenses  had been paid, he would be put down  as a failure, and he ������������������/ould oi;e soon  enough. The first thing the average  up-to-date business man does when  he gets his goods about him is to  find the best possible nethod of advertising. I-Ie figures his advertising  first, not last. And a liberal amount  is set aside for the purpose of advertising.  What are good business methods in  the ordinary mercantile life, are of  equal merit in ,the conduct of the  corporation -business of a town.  The rate-payers of the town and 'district are as co-partners in the business. Each has an interest in the  whole, and what is of benefit to one  benefits all, when all are "playing  fair," and each is ready to contribute  his share or to do his part. The  value of the taxable property is the  value of thc stock and trade. No  community can advance beyond the  limit of the means of the individual  property owners, without the assistance of men from the outside. Every  man, every home seeker, who is induced to add his mite to the whole,  is so much gained in the interest of  all.

Thaw, the murderer of  Stanford White, some half a million  dollars to prove that her son was insane. She succeeded. It has since  cost her an equal amount to prove  that he is not insane. She has not  yet succeeded. Justice Keogh of thc  U. S. Supreme Court, a few days ago  denied Thaw's last application for  freedom. The court took the stand  that Thaw's release would be dangerous to public safety.  v.:  _z  PRO BONO PUBLICO  i  xz  X  STOP !   LOOK !   LISTEN !  Editor The Enderby Press:'  Never attempt to cross a ral'road  track until you are positively certain  there <is no train 'approaching. This  warning should be put in practice by  .3very person who ands it necost-ary  io cross a railroad tr.-vik, whecher  walking, riding, driving or nioioruijr.  There would be positively no accidents recorded in this counectio;i if  people would only stop! Ion.-:! aud  listen!  at every crossing.

They  are not decreasing���������������������������are not dying off.  This is rather embarrassing. The Indian laws of Canada were so framed  by our forebears as to make it easy  for the Indians to pass away���������������������������to conveniently get rid of them���������������������������but no  provision was - made in anticipation  of any increase in the Indian population. The framers of the Indian laws  of Canada apparently did not ever  consider the possibility that the Indians would do anything but become  accommodatingly extinct. Therefore  it would seem, that if the Indians are  determined to increase, there must  be a new Indian policy adopted. And'  the sooner the better.  Under tbe Indian laws now in operation, the red men are loaded up  to the ears with1 valuable land which  they can neither cultivate nor sell.  No provision is made for compulsory  schooling; no provision is made for  compulsory cleanliness' or the teaching of right living; no provision is  made for- the Indian to have.any  standing in court: he cannot negotiate a deal' for any monetary consideration; if. he* 'runs a bill with a  [.whiteman, the white mau cannot col-  lect;   or if    a    whiteman   is   foolish  enough to enter into a contract cov-, _ . ���������������������������       ering any, kind,  of   a    business deal! able.   It may be argued that, "if'given  with an Indian, he can have no legal  all the financial assistance necessary  hold upon him   to . see that the con- j to" do these things, the Indians would  tract is carried out.   Our laws make ��������������������������� still prefer to loaf.   This same argu-  the Indians   irresponsibles.

He is made the" re- j in Idaho.   But it did not result that  cipient of    the   lowest of, the white-1 way.

The younger  men and women were put upon farms  and in schools and there taught how  to better themselves. As a result of  this new policy, the American Indian  has in a few years become a much  more valuable citizen, and is rapidly  developing into a higher type of manhood. We might do worse than look  across the line for our patern from  which to cut our Indian laws. ,  Canada must some day meet the  Indian problem and solve it. One has  but to live along side, an Indian reserve to recognize - how weak and  faulty are our Indian laws. Weak,  not in their operation, but in their  'lack of operation. They retard the  development of the1 Indians rather  than encourage it. o -"hey afford the  Indians nothing to live on except a  hugh tract" of wild land which they  cannot cultivate. If the Government  would convert 75 per cent of this  land-into money for the Indians,- they  would still have more land than  would be. necessary to keep the race  in comfort as long as it-logically can  live. The Indians themselves would  at once, come into possession of sufficient money to enable"'them to pur-'  chase implements and to .erect build-*  ings, and to pay for the clearing of  land enough to make farming profit-  Paid-up Ca  CANADA  and Undivided Profits $8,181,370  Total Aasets (Over)   $58,000,000  Thrifty Children  Tlie    lesson    of    thrift,    so *  necessary to the future welfare of  your children,   is   perhaps   best  taught  by  opening for   each   a'  Savings .Bank   Account,   and  encouraging them to deposit regu-'  larly a portion of their spending  money.

RAINFALL AND CONSUMPTION  A   study   of   fhe   influence   of   rain-  bearing winds upon the prevalence of  tuberculosis   has    been   made    by  .Dr.  William Gordon, physician to the .Royal  Devon    and    Exeter    hospital.      After  classifying    several    Devonshire    parishes   according   to   their   exposure'  to  rainy winds, Dr. Gordon searched out  in precisely which parishes the deaths  from  consumption  during a series  of  years had mainly occurred.   lie found  that   the   death   rate   in   thc  parishes  exposed   to   rain-hearing    winds    was  generally twice as high as that of the  parishes   sheltered   from   them.

T-le set out almost cheerfully  . for the American Legation to present  the letters of introduction hc had  brought from New York and to tell  his story. Thus supplied with credentials and facts, the oflicial might be  prepared to assist him.  His second step���������������������������thc test upon which  hc mainly depended���������������������������involved a search  for a yellow cathedral wall surrounded  with red flowers and facing an open  ' area. There, Saxon wanted to. stand,  for a moment, against the masonry,  with the sounds of the street in his  cars and the rank fragrance of the  vine in his'nostrils. There he would  ask his memory, under the influence  of these reminders, thc question the  water-front had failed  to answer.  That wandering, however, should be  reserved i'or the less conspicuous time  of night. T-Ie would spend the greater  part of the day, since his status was so  dubious, in the protection ol" his room  at ���������������������������the hotel. , ,,  If night did not answer the question,  he would go again at -sunrise, and  await the early glare on thc wall, since  that would exactly duplicate former  conditions. The night influences would  bc  soft,er,   less   cruel���������������������������and   less  exact,  ��������������������������� but he would go first by darkness and  reconnoifer thc > ground���������������������������unless his  riddle were solved before.  The American Legation, he was informed, stood as did his hostelry,, on  the main Plaza, only a few doors distant and directly opposite the palace  of the President.  He was met by Mr. Partridge, the  secretary of legation. The minister  was spending several days at.-Mira-  vista, but was expected back that  evening, or tomorrow morning at the  latest, ln thc meantime', if the secretary could be of service to a countryman, he would be glad. The'secretary  was a likable young fellow with "frank  American" eyes.- He fancied Saxon's  face, and was accordingly cordial.  ''There  is  quite a" decent  club,-here  for   Anglo-Saxon    exiles,"   announced  "Mr. Partridge.   "Possibly, you'd like to  ���������������������������r look in? -I'm occupied for the clay, but  I'll drop around for you this-evening,  and make-you out a card."     '      .  .     -  ��������������������������� Saxon left his letters with the secre-  : -tary to be given to .the chief, on arrival,  ii and returned to the "Frances y,Ingles."  -''lie did-not'again "emerge" from  his  -.room untillevening, and,"-'as he left the  -patio- of -the'" hotel  for his journey to  the old cathedral, the moon -was shin-  ��������������������������� ing brightly between the shadows .of  the adobe walls and the balconies that  hung above, the pavements. As he  Avent out through the si reel* door, Mi*.  ..Howard Stanley Rodman glanced furtively up from a corner table, and tossed  away a half-smoked cigarette.  The old cathedral takes up a square.  In 'the'-'niches of its outer wall stand  ,the stone effigies of many saints. Beforo its triple,- iron-studded doors  "stretches a tiled terrace. Af its right  runs a side-street, and, attracted by a  patch of clambering vine on the time-  " stained walls, where the moon fell full  upon them, Saxon turned into the by-  -way.    At the far end, thc facade rose  .blankly,,-fronting a bare drill-ground,  and there he halted. The. painter had  riot counted on the moon. Now, as be  took his place against thc wall, it bathed him in an almost effulgent whiteness. The shadows of the abutments  were inky in contrast, and the disused  _an_d   ancient   cannon,_ planted   at   the  curb for a corner post; stood out boldly in relief. But the street was silent  and, except for himself, absolutely deserted.  For a lime, hc stood looking outward. From somewhere at his back,  in the vaultlikc recesses of the building, drifted tho heavy pungency of  incense burning at a shrine.  Mis ears were alert for thc sounds  that mighl, in their drifting incpnse-  ���������������������������qu en cor moan- everything.- -Then,- as no  reminder came, he closed his eyes, and  wracked his imagination in concentrated thought tis a monitor to memory.  lie groped after somo detail of the  other time, if thc other time had been  an actual fragment of his life. T-le  strove to recall tho features of the  oflicer who commanded the death  squad, some face that had stood there  before him on* that morning; the style  of uniforms they wore. He kept his  eyes closed not only for seconds, but  for minutes, and, when in answer to  his focused self-hypnotism and prodding suggestion no answer came, there  came in its stead a torrent of joyous  relief.  Then, he heard something like a subdued ejaculation, and opened his eyes  upon a startling spectacle.  Leaning out from the shadow of an  abutment stood a thin man, whose face  in, the moon showed a strange mingling  of' savagery and terror. It was a face  Saxon did not remember to have seen  before. The eyes glittered, and the  teeth showed as the thin, lips were  drawn back over them in a snarling  sort of smile. But the most startling-  phase of the tableau, to the man who  opened his eyes upon it without warning, was tho circumstance of the unknown's pressing an automatic pistol  against his breast. Saxon's first impression was that he had fallen prey  to a robber, but he knew instinctively  that this expression was not that of  a man bent on mere thievery. It had  more depth and evil satisfaction. It  was the look of a man who turns a  trick in an important game.  As the painter gazed at the face and  figure bending forward from the abutment's sooty shadow like some chimera  or gargoyle fashioned in thc wall, his  first sentiment was less one of immediate peril than of argument with  himself. Surely, so startling a denouement should serve to revive his memory, if he had faced other muzzles  there!  Whon the man with the pistol spoke,  it was in words that were illuminating.  The voice was tremulous with emotion,  probably nervous terror," yet the tone  was intended to convey irony, and was  partly successful.  "I presume," it said icily, "you wished to enjoy tho sensation of standing  at that point���������������������������this time with the certainty of walking away alive, lt must  be. a pleasant-reminiscence, but one  never can tell." The thin man paused,  and then began afresh, * his voice  charged with a bravado that somehow  seemed to lack genuineness.  "Last time, you expected to be carried away dead���������������������������and went away living.  This* time, you expected to walk* away  in safely, ancl, instead, you've got to  die. your execution was only delayed."  He gave a short, - nervous laugh, then  his A-oico came near breaking as he  went on almost wildly: "I've got to  kill'you, Carter. God knows I don't  want lo do il, but I must have security! This knowledge that you are  watching me to drop on me like a  hawk on a rat, will drive me mad.  They've told me up and down both  these God-forsaken coasts, from Ancon  to Buenos Ayres, from La Boca to  Concepcion, that you would get mc, and  now it's sheer self-defense with me.  I know you never forgave a wrong���������������������������  and God knows that 1 never did you  the wrong you are trying to revenge.  God knows-I am"innocent."  Hodman hailed breathless, and stood  with his flat chest rising and falling  almost hysterically. He was in the  state when men are most irresponsible  and dangerous.  Meanwhile a pistol held in an 'unsteady hand, its trigger under,-an uncertain finger, emphasized a 'situation  that called for electrical thinking. To  assert a mistake- in identity would be  ludicrous. Saxon" was not in-a_ position to claim that. The other man  seemed to have knowledge that he himself lacked. Moreover, that-knowledge  was the'information .which.' Saxon, as  self-prosecutor,-must have."?" The only  course -was ' to..meet, the';' other's bra-*  vado with a-counter showof^_bravadoL  arid keep him" talking] Perhaps, some  one would pass in thc empty street. -  ' "Well,"..demanded Hodman-between  gasping breath's, "why,in hell don't you  say .something?"  Saxon began to feel the mastery of  the- stronger "man over the weaker,  despite thc fact-that the weaker supplemented his inferiority with, a  weapon.  "It appears -to me," came the answer, and it was thc first time Hodman had heard the voice", now almost  velvety, "it appears to me that there  isn't very ��������������������������� much for me to say. You  seem to be in the best position to do  the talking."-- - , - _ .'  "."Yes,-damn you!" accused the other,  excitedly. "You are ahvays the same  ���������������������������always making the big pyrotechnic  display!; You have grand-standed  and posed as the debonair adventurer,  until it's come to be second nature.  That won't help now!" The thin man's  braggadocio changed suddenly to  something like a whine.  =^' ���������������������������ytftrl?irovfT irri r i glTraTrelr^iil=Wff-?  're throwing a bluff. You're a fool not  to   realize    lhat   it's    because   I'm   so  frightened that 1 am capable of killing  you. I've craned my neck around  every corner, and jumped at every  shadow since that day���������������������������always watching for you. Now, I'm going fo end il.  I seo your plan as if it was printed on  a glass.pane. You've discovered my  doings, and, if you left here alive, you'd  inform tlie.governmenl.--l   Here, at least, Saxon could speak,  and speak truthfully.  "1 don't know anything, or care anything, about your plans," he retorted,  curtly.  "That's a damned lie!" almost  shrieked the other man. "It's just your  style, it's just your infernal chicanery, i wrote you that letter in good  faith, and you tracked me. You found  out where 1 was and what'l was doing.  How you learned it, God knows, but I  suppose it's still easy for you to get  into the confidence of the juntas. Thc  moment 1 saw you on the boat, the  whole thing flashed on me. It was your  fine Kalian brand of work to como  down on the very steamer that carried  my guns���������������������������to come ashore just at the  psychological moment, and turn me  over to thc authorities on the exact  verge of my success! Your brand of  humor saw irony in that���������������������������in giving mc  the same sort of death you escaped,  But it's too late. Vegas has the guns  in spite of you! There'll be a new  president in the palace within three  days." The man's voice became almost triumphant. He was breathing  more normally once again, as his cour-'  age gained its second wind.  Saxon  was  fencing  for  time.      Incidentally,  ho  was  learning  profusely  about the revolution of tomorrow, but  nothing of the revolution of yesterday.  "I neither know, nor want to know,  anything about your dirty work," he  said, shortly.    "Moreover, if.you think  I'm bent on   vengeance,   you    are   a  damned fool to tell'me."  Rodman laughed satirically.  "Oh, I'm not so easy as you give me  credit for being*. You are trying to  'kiss your way out,' as the thieves put  it. You're trying to talk me out of  killing you, but do you know why I'm  willing to tell you all this?" He halted,  then went on tempestuously. "I'll tell  you why. In the first place, you know  it already, and, in the second place,  you'll never repeat any information  after tonight. It's idiotic perhaps, but  my reason for not killing you right at  the start is that I've got a fancy for  telling you the true facts, whether you  choose to believe them or not. It will  ease my conscience afterward."  Saxon stood waiting for thc next  move, bracing himself for an opportunity that might present itself, the  pistol muzzle still pointed at his chest.  "I'm not timid," went on the other.  "Yon know me. Howard Rodman,  speakin' in general, takes his chances.  Bul I am afraid of you, more afraid  than 1 am of the devil in hell. I know  1 can't bluff you. I saw you stand  against this Avail Avith thc soldiers out  there in front, and, since you can't be  frightened off, you must be killed."  The man's voice gathered vehemence  as hc talked, ancl his face shoAved  groAving agitation.' "And th'e horrible  part is that it's all a mistake, that I'd  rather be friends with you, if you'd  let me. J never was informant against  you."  I-Ie 'paused;*1 exhausted by his ' panic  and his flOAV of Avords. Saxon, Avith  a strong effort, collected his staggered  senses.  "Why do you think 1 come for ven-  geance?"'he asked.  ' "Why do J think it?" The thin man  laughed bitterly. "Why, indeed? What:  except necessity or implacable A**en-  geance"could drive a man to this Godforsaken strip of coast? And you���������������������������you  Avith money, enough to live richly in  God's country, you Avhose very face in  these boundaries imales imprisonment  or death! What else could bring you?  But T knew you'd come���������������������������and, so help  mc God, I'm innocent,"  A sudden idea struck Saxon. This  might be the- cue to draAV on the  frightened talker Avithout self-revelation.  "What do you Avant me to believe  Avere thc real facts?" he demanded,  with an assumption of the cold incred-.  ulity that seemed expected ,of him.  The other spoke eagerly.  "That morning Avhen General Ojedas'  forces entered Puerto Frio, and the  goA'ernment' seized me, you we're free.  Then, I -was released, and you arrested.  You dreAv your conclusions. Oh. they  Avere. natural enough, p But; before  hcaA'en, they Avere ,Avrong!"- ** -  -"Saxon felt'that, until,he had learned  the full story, ho must-remain the actor.. Accordingly,-he allowed himself a  skeptical *laugh"._. Rodman, stung by  the-implicd- disbelief/"took up "his argument, again: '- ;-;, ���������������������������;-_-.���������������������������_'- . ; *' ,'-,  "You think I'm-lying. _ It sounds too  fishy! Of course, it. AA'as'my enterprise': It Avas-'a revolution of my mak-  jn'g. . You.'\ve17_ .called in as the small  lawyer calls in the great one. " I. concede-all that.' , For mo��������������������������� to"haArc.sacrificed you would haA'c been infamous,  but I didn't do'it. I had-been little seen  in PuertoFrio. '1 was not "AA'ell"* known.

You remember how" carefully  Ave planned���������������������������Iioav-Ave kept apart. You  know that even you and I met only  tAvicc, and that I never even saAv your  man, Williams."  Through the bitterness of conviction,  a part of Saxon's brain seemed to be  looking, on impersonally nnd" marveling, almost Avith amusement, at thc remarkable- position in Avhich he' found-  himself. TIcre stood a man before him  with a pistol pressed close to his chest,  threatening execution, denouncing,  cursing, yet all.the Avhile giA'ing cvi-  ner of a man Avho hopes for no quarter. His loAver jaAV dropped, and he remained trembling, almost idiotic of  mien. Then, as Saxon picked up the  Aveapon and stood fingering its trigger,  the filibuster drew himself up really  Avith dignity. He stretched out both  empty hands, and shrugged his shoul  ders.  (To be continued)  OLD  BLUE TABLEWARE IN GROWING DEMAND  At a recent auction sale of a private  collection oi* house furnishings in New  York an old "blue Staffordshire platter  measuring 14 by 18A inches Avas sold  for $1,225. .In 1903 at a similar sale its  mate sold i'or $290. Both plates Avere by  the same maker,' AndreAv StcA'enson, and  the same artist, W. G. Wall, furnished  both designs. The only difference Avas  that the platter sold in 3903 Avas a view  of '' NeAv. York from Brooklyn Heights''  and that sold in 1912 Avas "New York  from WeehaAvken."  The difference of $935 in the valuation' of these tAvo platters Avas not thc  measure of WeeliaAvken 's superiority  over Brooklyn Heights as a point from  AA'hich to observe New York in ISIS,  Avhen Wall came to America from Dublin to make his sketches for Stevenson,  "old  "blue  dence of terror, alriiost pleading Avith  his victim to believe his story! Tt Avas  -Lhe==a,rmeil=man=-wlio=,=-A\-as=frightenedr  avIio dreaded tho act he declared he  AA'as about to commit. And, as Saxon  stood listening, it dawned upon him, in  the despair of the moment, that it was  a matter of small concern to himself  Avhether or not the other fired. The  story he had heard had already done  tho injury. The bullet A\'ould be less  cruel.    .    .   .   Rodman Avc'nt on:  "I bent overy effort to saving you,  bul__Williams Jiad _confcsscd.._ _I-I_c_was  frightened. It Avas his first experience.  He didn't know of my connection Avith  tho thing. So help me God, lhat is tho  true version."  Tho story sickened Saxon, comjng lo  him as it did in a form he could -no  longer disbelieve. He raised his hands  despairingly. At last, he heard tho  other's voice again.  "When lhe scrap ended, and you  Avere in power, I had gone. 1 was  afraid to come back. I knew Avhat you  Avould think, and then, after you left  the country, I couldn't find Avhere you  had gone."  "You may believe me or nol," the  painter said apathetically, "but 1 have  rorgotten all that. 1 have no resentment, no Avish for vengeance. T had  not even suspected you. 1 give you  my word on that."  "Of course," retorted Rodman excitedly, "you'd say that. You're looking doAvn a gun-barrel. You're talking  for your life.    OT course, you'd lie.'  Then, the revolutionist did a foolish  and unguarded thing. Ho came a step  nearer, and pressed the muzzle closer  against Saxon's chest, his own eyes  glaring into those of his captive. Thc  movement threw Saxon's hands out of  his diminished field of sight. In an  instant, thc painter had caught the  wrist of the slighter man in a grip that  paralyzed the hand, and forced it  aside. The pistol fell from thc nerveless fingers, and dropped clattering to  the flagstones. As it struck, Saxon  swept it backAvard with his foot.  Rodman leaped frantically baclnvard,  and stood for a moment rearranging  his crumpled cuff with the dazed man-  but it is a measure1 of the increasing  value placed' by    collectors    on  blue,"  or "historic plates"   or  Staffordshire,'' or whatever it is called  today.  -"Old blue" has become one of the  leading staples of the antique market.  It has at least two elements of attraction that distinguish it from other old  fashioned household Avares that are iioav-  adays sought out. "First comes its historic interest. Jt AA'as made in England,  but for America; and to Avin American  favor there were reproduced upon" it  American vioAvs and other subjects suited to tho American trade. It came to  be used largely, and the old plates,  platters and other things present many  scenes of'a hundred years ago. This is  the basis of old blue's historical interest. ,   - -  ]ts other elements of' attraction lies  in its decorative quality. Although  many of the pieces arc deficient in fine  detail of decoration -because of 'the  vicissitudes of the process by which the  designs Avere printed" on paper from  copper plates and then'transferred to  the china, they provided a color note of  value, in the/decorating of Colonial  rooms, or-when associated Avith old furniture or pewter .or copper.and brass.  It Avould-not do to assume; that all  blue Staffordshire has increased 420 per  cent, in-value in.nine years because of  the records, of the-.tAvo. sales-already  cited. Prices at auctions do notysupply  evidence, on*:which" to base final conclu-.  sions-of; that nature.-. .-The "personal  rivalry*, of ;_avo, bidders.'may__ run 'up.'a  price"far.beyound'it's proper level or the  abseiicc"6f.pm-atc,collectors.'at an'a'uc-  tion'-maj'- leaA'e a piece wholly, at the  mercy of7the dealers,., avIio are'7iievor  bulls Avhen 'thoy buy, but always bears  until they have bought. - At anotber-re-  ^ecnt auction sale two women simultaneously became possessed of the.desire to  oavii the same Sheraton .mahogany cup"-"  board, and neither surrendered until the,  $400 mark" was reached.; .Yet"the pre"  ceding sale Avas of a Sheraton sideboard  Avith all the desirable characteristics  Avhich brought only $230. Most collectors Avould have appraised this 'sideboard" above" the corner cabinet. So  Avith the platter. - The rivalry of two  bidders may have raised the priee unduly. Nevertheless tliere is no doubt  about the increasing valuation placed  *by* collectors on old blue. -  Enoch Wood began to make blue Staffordshire Avare, for-the" American trade  shortly, after hc started in business in  ]7S4. -His lead Avas quickly folloAved  by hi.s competitors .and from ]7Sl"t6  IS.O or thereabout not less than tAventy-  onc firms identified their names Avith the  trade, while others Avere engaged in it  but arc not known by name.- There arc  records of at least .29 American sub  jects that were employed by these Brit-  ish potters to adorn their Avares, and  there were also many English and Continental subjects, some of which acquired popularity in America.  Enoch Wood, Andrew Stevenson, J.  ainl "R;- Olews, Joseph Stubbs, J. and W.  "Ridgway, .Ralph Stevenson and T.  Mayer are the best known names of the  English makers of! old blue tableware.  Specimens of their Avork arc still lo bo  found-fruuiieiitly-in- the antiquo-shops.  Prices vary in proportions to the reputed rarity of the subjects, the condition of the pieces, the eagerness of 'the  collector and the necessities of the dealer. Current quotations on a fow of the  best known subjects Avill serve in a  general way lo indicate general market  conditions.  Thc Clews plate, "Landing of Gen.  Lafayette," ten inches in diameter, is  valued tit $20, and one specimen can bc  had for $12 because it is chipped and  -���������������������������racked.    Eight, or nine years ago $10  Avould have been a fair price  for this  plate in good condition.   The "Landing  of Lafayette" view is considered cssen  lial in every good collection of old blue  and is a good one to employ as a test of  market conditions.   It came out in 3S24  as a souvenir of Gen. Lafayette's visit  to America, and the picture was taken  from Battery-Park Avhen the old Castle  Garden   fort  Avas  connected   Avith   the  mainland by a foot bridge.    A "T.arid-  high, Avith no imprint but undoubtedly  by Clews, with the Battery picture on  both sides and thc inscription beneath  thc nose, can bc had at present for $1-1.  A pair of Lafayette plates five and a  half inches in  diameter Avere recently  bought  for $17, and plates six and  a  half or seven and three-quarter inches  in diameter are Avorth from $.10 to $15.  Another favorite is   the   "Pittsficld  Klin" by CIcavs.   TAventy dollars is thc  price   at  present  for   a   perfect   nine-  inch plate, Avhile ten years ago a ton-  inch soup plate, with the samo pattern  Avas sold at private sale for $10.   This  design must have appeared subsequentlyto 1823, the year in Avhich the fence  sliOAvn around the tree was erected to  prevent its further use as a .hitching  post. This old elm became famous in  .Revolutionary days, Avhen a patriotic  clergyman enlisted a company of Yankee farmers under it for service against"  the British.  Every collector of Staffordshire  knoAvs about the "States" series by  CIoavs. Jt consisted of a dozen or more  subjects Avith a border giving the names  of fifteen states in a series of festoons.  A medallion of Washington and female  figures of America and Independence,,  arc ahvays in evidence in the design. A'  fine largo "States" platter sold at auction in Boston ten,years ago for $-10.  Today a nine-inch plate in perfect condition is offered for $13. Another New  York shop has a "States" plate six and  three-quarters inches in diameter in  good condition which it* holds at $12  and one of thc same size has just been  sold at auction for $9.  The RidgAvay "Beauties of America"  series of nineteen views of almhouses,  insane asylums, churches, city halls and  other' public buildings ahvays has been "  a prime favorite Avith collectors. One  of the best knoAvn subjects is the '' City  Hall, New York." A shop has one of'  these plates, cracked and chipped, for', "  AA'hich $10 is asked. Twenty dollars  Avould be the price of the plate were it  in good condition.  This is one of the subjects that have''  attracted those who make spurious .old 7  Staffordshire.-   Specimens    have  to . be  examined carefully for the    old"  stilt 7  marks, and they should bear the Ridg; -  Avay'mark, Avhich is always used"on-thc    *  "Beauties of America, "'AA'ith the name-7"--  of the series, the" title of the subject,-'"'  and the manufacturer's name in  'full.-'-'  "Dr.    Staughton's    Church;    Phila'del-* ���������������������������  phia,"'was another of the "Beauties,"  ' .  and an eight-inch plate iii deep form has"   '-  recently changed OAvners for $14.

The  total area of the empire is placed at  .n,30C,000  square miles.      In  1SSI the  total   population   was   303,094,000,   hut  in   the  thirty  years   it  has  grown   to '  41C.31S.000,  or a population  of 36.S  to  the square mile.

The chief significance of these fig-,  tires lies in the 'fact that outside of  India, the increase has been almost  wholly of white people, every nation  in Europe having added its quota of  people to swear allegiance to the British flag and add to thc strength of the  empire.  AUSTRIAN RADIUM  MONOPOLY  The Austrian State is about to purchase Count Sylva Tarouca's pitch  brendc mines in tho neighborhood of  .loachimsthal for 2,250,000 kronen  ($457,000). This purchase would give  the State a practical monopoly of the  radium production in Austria, if not in  the avo rid, inasmuch as the radium  yielding pitch blende deposits in othor  countries are insignificant in comparison Avith those of the Joachimsthal  district,where it is hoped in future to  produce as much as five grammes of  radium per year.  143 THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, August 1, 1912  Want Ads.

A discovery of coal has been  made near Summerland by John  D. Rice, The coal is bituminous  and of a high class quality; according to an analysis made by  Provincial Mineralogist Robinson  to whom a sample was submitted.  The coal is outcropping 300 yards,  but a drift has been run in several  feet by Mr. Rice. From three  feet the seam has widened to five  in the few yards already excavated, and is of blanket formation, covering, as far as can  be ascertained, an area of several  acres. Rights of a mile square  of the land have been claimed.  Dsten! Buy groceries from us.
