Watt & Company  God  knows  I  meant  it  as  time   enough   to   forget,"  CHAPTER XIX.���������������������������Continued  "V/'OL* wiil go to Nice for a Avhile,"  X said Steele, firmly. He had fallen  into a position olf arranging their  affairs. .Mrs. Horton, di.-ire.s.-x-d in  Duska's distress, found herself helpless  to act  except,  upon   his  direction.  The girl  nodded, apathetically.  "il   doesn't matter," she said.  Tlieii, she looked up again.  "Uut I wain you to stay. I want you  to do everything- ywii can for both of  them." She paused, and hor next  Words wero spoken wilh an effort:  "And I d-n't want���������������������������1 don't want you  to speak of me. I don't want you to  try to remind him."  "He will question me," demurred  Steele.  Duska's head was raised with a little  gesture'Of pride.  "I am not afraid," she said, "'that hc  will ask you? anything he should not���������������������������  anything that he has not the right to  ask."  CHAPTER XX.  "When he lurrr-d back, a clay later,  from the turmoil of the station, from  the strenuous labor of weighing trunks,  locating the compartment in the train,  subsidizing the guards, and, hardest ot*  all, saying good-bye to Duska with a  .seeming or normal cheerfulness, Steele  found himself irritably; out of measure  with thc quick-step of Paris. Mrs.  Horton and the girl were on their way  to the Riviera. He was left behind to  watch results; almost, it seemed to  him, to sit by and observe the postmortem on every hope in the lives of  three people. Nice should still be  quiet. The tidal wave of '���������������������������trippers"'  would not i'or a little while sweep over  its rose-covered slopes ancl white  beaches and dazzling esplanades, and  the place would afford the girl at least  every soothing influence that nature  could offer. That would not be much,  but it would be something.  As for himself, he felt the isolation of  Paris. On a desert, a man may become  lonely; in deep forests and on high  mountains, he may come to know and  hate his own soul in solitude, but the  last note of aloofness, of utter exile, is  that whieh comes to him who looks  vainly for one face in a sea of other  faces, whose small cosmos lies in unwept and unnoticed ruin in ihe midst  of a giant city that'moves along its  - indifferent way to thc time of dance-  - music.     In   the   hotel,   there . was .the  "fbhattcr  of  tourists.'    If is  own   tongue  "-.was prattled by men and women whose  lives seemed to revolve around the  shops of the Rue de la i'aix, or whose  literature was the information of the  guide-books. . Hc felt that everyone  was, invading* his somberncss of mood  with    trivialities,    until,   in   revulsion  "against fhe whole stage-setting of  things, he had. himself and his luggage  ' transported to the Hotel Voltaire,  where the life about him was thc simpler  life of the  less pretentious  quais  -of the Seine.  After his dejeuner, hc sat for a timo  attempting to readjust his ideas. He  had  told  Saxon  that  he  would   never  - again speak of love to Duska. Now, he  realized how barren of hope it would  ever be for him to renew his plea. She  had bankrupted his heart. He had  buried his own hopes, and no one except himself had known at what cost  to himself. He had taken his place' in  the niche dedicated to closest friend,  just outside the inner shrine reserved  for the one who could penetrate that  far. Now, he was in a greater distress. Sow, he wanted only her happiness, and  a.s  he  had  never wanted  it  =TJCf6rO~~X'0"\'rf^n e^l'cfn vf. ed���������������������������tl tfturvl 1 e^&rrl^���������������������������  source through whieh this could come  was the source lhat seemed hopelessly  clogged. There was no doubt of his  sincerity. V.ven his own intimate  questioning acquitted him of self-consideration. Could ho at that moment  have had one wish fulfilled by some  magic -agency of miracle, that wish  would have bet-n Hint he might load  Robert Saxon, as Robert Saxon had  been, in _Pu������������������kn, withy\\\_ his memory  and luve intact, and free from any incumbrance that might divide them.  That would have been Ihe gift oT all  gifts, and th--- only gift that would drive  the look of heart-hunger and despair  from her eyes.  Steele was restless, and, taking up  his hat, he strolled out along the quay,  and turned at last into the Roulevard  St. Michel, stretching off In a broad  vista of cafe-lined sidewalk's. Tho life  of the "Houlo Mich" held no attraction  for him. In his earlier days, hc had  known it from the river to the Boulevard Montpnrnasse. He knew its tributary streets, its lodgings, its schools,  and the life which the spirit of thc  modern is so rapidly revolutionizing  from Bohemia's shabby capital to a  conventionalized district. None of these  things held for him the piquant challenge of novelty.  As he passed a certain cafe,  which  he  had   once  known   as  the   informal  club of  the  Marston  cult,  he  realized  that here  the  hilarity was more pronounced   than  elsewhere.    The  boulevard  itself was  for squares  a thread,  stringing cafes  like beads in a necklace.    Each had its crowd of revelers;  its boisterous throng of frowsy, velvet-  jacketed,     long-haired    students;     its  laughing models;  its inevitable brooding and despondent absintheurs sitting  apart   in    isolated    melancholy.      Yet,  here  at   thc  "Chat  Noir,"   the  chorus  was   noisier.     Although   the   evening  was chill, the sidewalk tables were by  no    means    deserted.      The    Parisian  proves hi.s patriotism by his adherence  to the out-door table, even if he must  turn  up  his  collar,   and  shiver as  he  sips his wine.  Listlessly, Steele turned inlo the  place, it was so crowded this evening  that for a time it looked as though he  would have dilfioully in finding a seat.  At last, a waiter led him to a corner  where, dropping to the seat along the  wall, he i-rdered his wine, and sal  gloomily looking on.  Tho place was unchanged. Thero  were still the habitues quarreling over  their warring tenets of the brush; men  drawn to the centre of painting as  moths are drawn tu a candle; men  of all nationalities and sorts, alike only  in the general quality of their unkempt  grotesquerie.  There was music of a sort; a plaintive chord long-drawn from the violin  occasionally,made its sweet wail heard  above the bnbel and through the reeking smoke of the room. ISvidcntly, it  was some occasion beyond the ordinary, and Steele, leaning ovor to thc  student nearest him, inquired in  French:  "Js there some celebration?"  The stranger was a short man, with  hair that fell low on his neck- and  greased his collar. I-Tc had a double-  pointed beard and deep-set black eyes,  which he kept fixed on his absinthe ns  it dripped drop by drop from the nickeled device attached to his frappe glass.  At the question, ho looked up, astonished.  "But is it possible monsieur does not  know? Wc arc all brothers here���������������������������  brothers in the worship of the beautiful!    Does not monsieur know?"  Steele did not know, and he told the  stranger so without persiflage.  "It is that the great Marston has  returned!" proclaimed the .student, in  a loud voice. "It is that the master  has come back to us���������������������������to'Paris!"  Thc sound of his voice had brought  others about tho table. "Does monsieur know that thc Seine flows?" demanded a pearly pretty model, raising-  he r glass and Hashing from her dark  eyes a challenging glance of ridicule.  Steele did not object to thc good-  humored baiting, but ho looked about  him, and was'thankful that the girl on  her way to- Nice could not look, in on  this enthusiasm over the painter's  home-coming; could not see to what  Marston was returning; what character of devotees woro pledging the promotion of the first disciple to the place  of the worshiped master.  -_ Somo half-drunken student, his hand  upon* the shoulder of a model, lifted a  tilting glass, and shouted thickly, "Vive  1'arl! Vive Marston!" The crowd  took up the shout, and there was much  clinking'of glass.  Steele, with a feeling of deep disgust,  rose   to  go.     The  other  quais  of  tho  Seine were better after all.    But, as ho  reached for his hat, he felt a hand on  his shoulder, and, turning, recognized,  with  a glow  of welcome,  the face  of  M.   Herve.      .Dike   himself,   1st. -T-Icrve  seemed  out  of his  element,  or would  have seemed so had he also not had,  like   Steele,    that   adaptability   -which  makes  some  men  fit into  the  picture  wherever  they  may   find    themselves.  Thc   two   shook   hands,   and   dropped  back on the cushions of the wall scat.  "1 have heard the story," the Frenchman  assured   Steele.    "Monsieur  may-  spare himself thc pain of repeating it.  It is a miracle!"  - Steele was looking into his glass.  "Jt is a most unhappy miracle," hc  replied.  "l?.ut, mon dieu!" M. 1-Tcrvo looked  across thc table, tapping the Kenluck-  ian's sleeve with his outstretched  fingers. "If ...makes_mi_c_Jh.ink,_mpn^rni.  ���������������������������it makes ono think!"  Nis vis-a-vis only nodded, and Herve  went on:  "It brings home to one thc indestructibility of the true gonitis���������������������������the unquenchable fire of it! Destiny plays a  strange game. She has hero taken a  man. and juggled with his life; battered his identity lo unrecognizable  fragmenls; set a seal on hi.s past. Yet  his genius she could not efface. That  but'ned"~throngh "to the "light���������������������������sounded  on insistent ly through the confusion of  wreck, even as that violin sounds  through this hell of noises and disorder  ���������������������������1 lif greal unsilenced chord! The  man thinks he copies another. .Not so  ---he Is merely groping to find himself.  Xover have I (bought so deeply as  since I have heard this story."  For a time, Steele did not reply. To  him, the personal element drowned the  purely academic interest of the psychological phase in  this tragedy.  Suddenly, a new element of surprise  struck- him, and he leaned across the  table, his voice full of questioning.  "Rut you," he demanded, "you had  studied under Marston. You knew  him, and yet, when you saw Saxon,  you had no recognition."  M. Herve nodded his head with grave  assent.  "That    was    my    first    incredulous  thought when I heard .of this miracle,"  he admitted;  "yet, only for a moment.  After  all,   thnt  was  inevitable.    They  were different.    Now, bearded, ill, depleted, I fancy he may once more look  the man I knew���������������������������that man whose hair  was a mane, and whose morbid timidity gave to his eyes a haunted and uncertain fire.    When J saw Saxon, it is  true I  saw. a. man  wounded  and  unconscious; his face covered with blood,  and the dirt of the street, yet he was,  even so, the man of splendid physique  ���������������������������the   new   man   remade   by   the   immensity   of    your    western   prairies���������������������������  having acquired all that the man I had  known   lacked.    He  was   transformed.  In that, his Destiny was kind���������������������������she gave  it not only to his body, but to his  brush. He was before a clemi-god of  the palette.    Mow. he is the god."  "Do you chance to know," asked  Steele suddenly, "how hi.s hand was  pierced?"  "Have you not heard that story'."'  thc Frenchman asked. "1 am regrettably responsible for that. We sought  to make him build the physical man.  1 persuaded him, to fence, though hc  did it badly and without enthusiasm.  One evening, we were toying with  sharpened foils. Partly hy his carelessness and partly by my own, the  blade went through his palm. For a  long period, hc could not paint."  Frederick Marston was not at onco  removed from thc lodgings in thc Hue  St. Jacques. Absolute rest was what  hc most required. When he awoke  again, unless he awoke refreshed Insufficient rest, Dr. Cornish held out' no  hope. The strain upon enfeebled body  and brain Lad been great, ancl for days  he remained delirious or unconscious.  Dr. Cornish was like adamant in his  determination that he should be left  undisturbed for a week or .more.  Meanwhile, the episode had unexpected results. The physician who had  come to Paris fleeing from a government he had failed (o overturn, who  had taken an emergency case because  there was no one else at hand, found  himself suddenly heralded by the Paris  press as "that distinguished specialist,  Dr. Cornish, who is effecting a miraculous recovery for the greatest of painters."  During these days, Steele was constantly at the lodgings, and with him,  sharing his anxiety, was M. I-Iervc.  There were many callers to inquire���������������������������  painters ancl students of the neighborhood, and thc greater celebrities from  the more distinguished schools.  But no one was more constantly in  attendance than Alfred St. John. Tie  divided his time between the bedside  of his daughter and the lodgings where  Marston lay. The talk that filled thc  Latin Quarter, and furiously excited  thc studio on thc floor below, was  studiously kept from the girl .confined  to her couch upstairs.  One day while St. John was in the  Rue St. Jacques, pacing the sriiall cour  with Steele and Herve, Jean -Hautecoeur came in' hurriedly. Ifis manner  was that of anxious embarrassment,  and for a moment he "paused, seeking*  words.   -'   '   :. - . _   '- ���������������������������_.  St. John's face.turned while with a  divination of his tidings."  "Docs she need mc'-"' he asked, almost breathlessly.  Hautecoeur nodded, and St. John  turned toward the door. Steele weiit  wilh him, and, as they climbed thc  steep stairs, tho old man leaned heavily  on his support.  Thc Kentuckian'wailed in St. John's  room most of that night. ' In the next  apartment were the girl, her father,  and the physician. A little before  dawn, the old man came out. His step  was almost tottering, and he seemed to  have aged a decade since he entered  thc door of the sick-room.  "My daughter is dead," he said very  simply, as his guest paused at the  threshold. "1 am leaving Paris.- My  people except for mc have borne a good  name. I wanted to ask you to save  that name from exposure. I wanted to  bury with my daughter everything that  might shadow her memory. For myself, nothing matters."  Steele   took   the   hand   tho  Englishman  held tremblingly outstretched.  "Js there anything else 1 can do?" hc  Tf-SKCXl. "*  St. John shook his head.  "That will be quite all," hc answered.  Such things as had to bc done, however, Steele did. and two days later,  when Alfred St. John took the train for  Calais and the Channel, it was with  assurances that, while they could not  ;it this time cheer him, at least fortified him against all foar of need.  It was a week later that Cornish  sent for tho. Kentuckian, who_\vas_wait_  ing in  the court.  "1 think you can see him now." said  (he physician briefly, "and I Ihink you  will see a man who has no gaps in his  memory."  Steele went with some misgiving to  the sickroom. No found Marston looking at him with eyos a.s clear and lucid  a.s his own. As ho came up, tho other  extended a hand with a trembling gesture of extreme weakness. Steele  clasped it in silence.  For a time, neither spoke.  While Steele waited, lhe other's face  became drawn. He was evidently  struggling with himself in desperate  distress. There was something to be  said which Marston found if bitterly  diflicult to say. At last, he spoke slowly, forcing his words and holding his  features in masklike rigidity of control.  'T remember it all now, George." He  hesitated as his friend nodded; then,  with a drawing of his brows and a tremendous orfort, he added, huskily:  "Ancl I must go to my wife."  Steele hesitated before answering.  "You can't do that, Bob," he said,  gently. "I was near her as long as  could bc. I think she is entirely happy  now."  Thc man in tho bed looked up. His  eyes read the eyes of the other. If  there was in his pulse a leaping sense  of release, he gave.it no expression.  "Dead?" ho whispered.  Steele nodded.  For a time, Marston gazed up at the1  ceiling with a fixed stare.    Then,  his  memory!  kindness."  "There   is  said Steele.  It was some days later that Marston  went'.with'Steele to' the Hotel Voltaire.  There was much to be explained and  done. He learned for the first time the  details of the ^expedition Steele had  made to South America, and then to  Europe; of the matter of the pictures  and .St. John's connection with them,  and of the mystifying circumstances of  the name registered at the Eysecl Palace Hotel. That incident they never  fat homed.  St. John had buried his daughter in  the Cimctier .Montmartre. After thc  first mention of the matter on his recovery to co: sciousness, Marston had  not again alluded to his former wifo,  until he was able to go to the spot,  and place a small tribute on her grave.  Standing there, somewhat awestruck.  his face became deeply grave, and,  looking up al his-friend, be spoke with  deep agitation:  "Thero i.s one part of my life that  was a tremendous mistake. I sought  to act with regard for a misconceived  duty and kindness, and I only inflicted  infinite pain. I want you to know, and 1  tell you here at a spot that is to me very  solemn, that [ never abandoned her.  When I left for America*, it was at her  command. If was with thc avowal  that I should remain subject to her recall as long as wc boih lived. I should  havo'"kept my word. It's not a thing-  thai: I can talk of again. You know all  that has happened since, but for once  i must fell you."  Steele felt that nothing he could say  would make the recital easier, and he  merely inclined his head.  "1 shall have her removed to England, if St. John wishes it," Marston  said. "God knows I'd like 1o have thc  account show some offsetting of the  debit."  A.s they left the gates for thc omnibus, Marston added:  "If St. John will continue to act as  my agent, he can manage it from thc  other side of the Channel. J shall not  bc often in Paris."  Later, he turned suddenly to thc  Kentuckian, with a half-smile.  "Wc swindled St. John," he*exclaimed. "We bought back tho pictures at  Saxon prices." His voice became unusually soft. "And Frederick Marston  can never paint another so good as the  portrait. We must sot that right. Do  you know���������������������������" thc man laughed shecp-  shily���������������������������"it's rather disconcerting to find  that ono has spent seven years in self-  worship?"  Steele smiled with relief at (he  change of the subject.  "Js " that the sensation of being  deified?" ho demanded. "Does one  simply, feel, that Olympus is drawn  down to sea level?" '  Shortly after, Marston'sent" a .brief  note to -Duska. . -��������������������������� "  - -'.'[ shall say little," hc wrote. "1 can't'  be sure you will-give mo a hearing,  but also I can not go until 1 have begged il. I ean not bear that any.report  shall reach you until 1 have myself reported.

And thc girl reading the letter let it  drop in her lap, and looked out through  her window across the dazzling whiteness of thc Promenade des Anglais lo  the purple Mediterranean. Once more,  her eyes lighted from deep cobalt to  violet.  "But thero was nothing fo forgive,"  sho softly told thc sea.  CHAPTER XXI.  When, a month later, Frederick  Marston went to tho hotel on the Promenade des Anglais at Nice, it was a  much improved and rejuvenated man  as compared with thc wasted creature  who had opened the closed door of the  "academy" in the Quartier Latin, and  had dropped the key on the floor. Although still a trifle gaunt, he was much  (he same person who, almost a year  -before. - hud -clung- to -thc -pickets-of  Churchill Downs, ancl halted in his  view of a two-year-old finish. Just as  tho raw air of the north had given  place to thc wooing softness of the  Riviera, and the wet blankets of haze  over tho gardens of lhe Tuilerios to  the golden sunlight ot tho flower-  decked south, so ho had como again  out of winter into spring, and tho final  result of his life's equation was the  man that had boon Saxon, untouched  by the old Marston.  Duska's stay at Nice had been begun  in apathy. About her wero all the  influences of beauty and roses and soft  breezes, but it was not until sho had  read this first letter from Marston that  these things meant anything to her.  Then, suddenly, she had awakened to a  sense of its delight. She knew that ho  would not como at once, and sho felt  (hat this was best. She wanted him  to come back to her when he could  come as the man who had been in her  life, and, since she knew he was coming, she could wait. Her eyes had become as brightly blue as the Mediterranean mirrori..g the sky, and her  cheeks had again taken on their kinship to the roses of the Riviera. Once  more, she was one with the nature of  this favored spot, a country that some  magical realist seems to have torn  bodily from the enchanted Isles of  Imagination, and transplanted in the  world of Fact.  Now, she became eager to see everything, and  so  it happened that, when  face clouded with black self-reproach, j Marston, who had not notified her of  '"If I could blot out that injury from' the   day   of   his   arrival,   reached   her  hotel, it was to find that she and her  aunt" had motored over to Monte Carlo,  by the upper Corniche Road, that  show-drive of> the world which climbs  along the heights wilh the sea below  and the sky, it would seem, not far-  above.*'  cfhe man turned out ��������������������������� again *��������������������������� to the  Promenade des Anglais. The sun avos  shining on its whiteness, and it seemed  that the city was a huge structure of  solid marble, set between thc sea and  the color-spotted slopes of tho villa-  clad hills.  Marston was highly buoyant as ho  made his way to thc garage where he  could secure a oar to give chase, lie  even paused with boyish and delighted  interest to gaze into the glittering shop  windows of thc Promenade and the  Avenue Felix Paure, whore were  temptingly displayed profound booklets  guaranteeing tho purchaser a sure system for.conquering the chances of roulette "on a capital of ������������������*!), playing red  or black, manque or passe, pair or impair, and compiled by one with foiir  years of experience."  Ho had ��������������������������� soon negotiated for a car,  and had gained the friendship of the  chauffeur, who grinned happily and  with contentment when he learned that  monsieur's object was speed. Ahead  of hini stretched nine miles of perfect  macadam, with enough beauty to fill  the eye and heart with joy for every  mile, and at. (he end of the journey���������������������������  unless ho could happily overtake her  sooner���������������������������was Duska.  The car sped up between the villas,  up to the white ribbon of road where  the ship.-,-, lying at anchor in thc purpled water beneath, were white toys  no longer I nan pencils, where towns  were only patches of roof tiles, and  mountainsides mere rumpled blankets  of green and color; where the road-  houses were delights of picturesque  rusticity and  flower-covered walls.  Thanks to a punctured tire, Marston  found a largo dust-coated car standing  at fhe roadside when hc had covered  only half of tho journey. It was drawn  up near a road-house that sat back,  of a rough, stone wall, anl was abandoned save for the chauffeur, who  labored over his task of repair. But  Marston stopped and ran up the stone  stairs to thc small terrace, where, between rose bushes that crowded the  time-stained facade of tho modest car-  avansery, were set two or three small  tables under a trellis; and, at one of  tlie tables, he recognized Mrs. Horton.  Mrs. Horton rose with a little gasp-  of delight to welcome him, and recognized how his eyes were ranging in  search for an even more important  personage while he greeted her. Off  beyond thc road, with its low guarding  wall of stone, tho mountainside fell  away precipitously to the soa, 'stretching out below in a limitless expanse of".-  tho bluest blue that our eyes can en- -  dure.   The slopes were thickly-wooded."-  ."We blew out a tire," explained Mrs.  Horton," "and Duska is'exploririgsome-  '  where over the wall there.    [ was con--  tent to sit here and-wait���������������������������but'you are  younger," she added .with a smile.    "I  won't keep you hore." ' ,."-  From inside tho tavern camo the  tinkle, of guitars, from everywhere in  the clear crystallin- air hung the perfume of roses. Marston, ��������������������������� with quick  apologies, hastened across the road,  vaulted thc wall, and began his search. "  It was a brief ono, for, turning into a  clearing, he saw her below him on a,  lodge. She stood as straight and slim  and gracefully erect' as the lancelike  young trees.  Hc made his way swiftly down the  j  slope,   and   she ' Jiad   not   turned   nor  heard his approach.   He went straight  to her, and took her in"his arms.  The girl wheeled with a little cry-of -  recognition and delight; then, after a  moment, she held him off at arms'  length, and looked at him. Pier oyes  were deep, and needed no words. About  them was all thc world and all the  beauty of it.  Finally,   she   laughed   with   the   old,  happy  laugh.  "Onco," she said very slowly, "you  quoted poetry lo mc���������������������������a- verse about the  young queen's crowning. Do you remember?"  Hc nodded.  "But that doesn't apply now," ho assured hor. "Vou aro going to crown  me with an undeserved ancl unspeakable crown."  "Quote it to me now," she commanded, wilh reinstated autocracy.  --For a.-moment,-lhc man-looked-into-  her face as the sun struck down on its  delicate color, under tho softness of  hat and filmy automobile veil; thon,  clasping hor very close, hc whispered  tho linos;  "Beautful, Jiold nnd browned,  Bright-eyed out of tho battle,  Tho young queen rode to bo crowned."  "Do you remember some other lines  in tho same verse?" she questioned, in  a voice that mado his throbbing pulses  bound faster; but, beforo hc could answer, she went on:  "'Then    thc   young   queen   answered  swift,  "Wo hold it crown of our crowning,  to take our crown for a gift.   They   turned  up the slope.  together,   and   started  The End.  A new line is being built between  Rome, Italy, and Naples which will  shorten the prosent distance of 155  miles by about 24 miles.

Construction work is progressing on  the Trans-Uruguayan Railway from  Colonia, opposite Buenos Ayres, almost  due north to San Luis, on the northern  frontier, where it will be linked with  the Brazilian railway system.

It  was necessary to take down some old  houses that were built about the year  16-10 and in the foundation ruins were  found many relics of that day, including clay pipes of a rude form such as  were smoked hy thc men of that mediaeval time. But under those foundations thc ruins of another house were  discovered, and  it must have been of  ���������������������������some importance, for it had a large  courtyard.and was .apparently regarded as some sort of boundary mark.  Antiquarians suggest that it may have  belonged, to some high official or dignitary or the church, for that whole  neighborhood was once a great religious centre and the names of many  of the adjacent streets, such as Paternoster How itself, still have a religious  significance. But a still more interesting discovery awaited the excavators.  Twenty feet below the street level were  found thc remains of a Roman house,  and thc soil was rich with' Roman  (coins, Venetian glass wine vessels, and  pieces of Roman pavement. The secretary of the British Archaeological  Society has placed all these relics, and  many others, on exhibition, and he  fells us that tbe ancient London of thc  Romans lies everywhere about twenty  feet below the surface, with succeeding   eras   represented    by    the    upper  ' strata.    -"  But in point of antiquity those London discoveries are far surpassed by  the interesting finds reported from  Laussel, in tho Dordogno, France.   An  * explorer has unearthed three statuettes, or bas-reliefs', that must have been  the work of men.living 3,000 years beforo Christ. These statuettes represent a man apparently in "the act of  throwing a lance and some women. The  figures   of  thc  women   are  somewhat  - obscured and the 'features are obliterated., but- the hair- is neatly arranged "and falls 'over the neck'in long,  heavy" curls. The figure "of the "man is  a. prepossessing one, thin, strong and  -,strongly    suggestive* . of    civilization.  1 Close.at hand was discovered a frieze  supple, and all of these statuettes are  of  much-artistic  merit     representing  ��������������������������� animals,  including the horse  and*the  .bison.,-If the France .of, 3,000 years ago  was actually inhabited by' a people possessing any degree, of civilization'the  , fact  seems*, to  argue  against  a  good  many theories of evolution.   If any of  these long past ages possessed a civilization    approximating   to    our    own,  which  was  subsequently  overwhelmed  by barbarism and'perhaps by natural  , cataclysms, we may one day .^discover  traces of a civilization surpassing our  own, and what a shock that-would be  to  our  complacency.  ITVDWARD Fitzgerald Beale, whose  !_��������������������������� ��������������������������� biography is given to us by Mr.  Stephen Bonsai, belongs to a type  lhat has disappeared with fhe need  for it. A grandson of Truxton, he was  born in the navy and his early yoars  -were passed at sea. He fought at San  Pasqual and il was he, in company  with Kit Carson, who carried to Commodore Stockton at San Diego the  news of General - Kearny's situation.  Beale was in California at the time of  tho gold discovery and he went east  with thc news and with the first samples of tho precious metal. Bayard  Taylor called him "a pioneer in tho  path of empire," for after his resignation from the navy he devoted himself  to thc exploration of the desert trails  and the mountain passes that led  overland to thc Pacific, while later on  he surveyed the routes and built the  wagon. roads over which passed the  m[ghty migration which created the  now world beyond the- Rockies.

He was deputed by  General Kearny, besieged at San Pas-  qual, to meet the enemy's envoys, and  to treat for an exchange of prisoners.  The incident was descrihed by Senator Benton, who learned it from Kit  Carson himself:  "This lad volunteered to go. and hear  fho  propositions  of  exchange.    Great  was  the alarm  at  his  departure.      A  six-barreled   revolver,   in   addition   to  the sword, perfectly charged and capped, was stowed under- his coat.   Thus  equipped,   and   well-mounted,   he   set  out, protected by a flag and followed  by anxious eyes and palpitating hearts.  Thc   little ' river   San   Bernardo  ,was  crossed at a plunging gallop, without  a  drink, though rabid for water both  tho horse and his rider, the rider having a policy which the horse could not  comprehend.     Approaching   a   picket-  guard, a young alfarez  (ensign)  came  out to' inquire for what purpose.    The  mission, was  made  known,  for  Beale  spoke Spanish;   and while a sergeant  was -sent to the general's  tent to inform   him  of  thc  flag,  a  soldier  was  despatched  * to   the - river   for   water.  'Hand  it  to  the  gentleman,'  was - the  Castilian command.   Beale put the cur  to'his lips, wet them, in token "of acknowledging a-civility,  and passed  it  back; "as * much " as   to "say,-, 'we- have  ���������������������������water  enough  on . that, hill.' *>The al-  farez  smiled;-and; while waiting  tlie  arrival   of   Don   Andres; ..a 'courteous  dialogue went on.    'How do you' like  .the country?' inquired the alfarez. 'Delighted with it,' responded Beale. 'You  occupy; a good position to take a wide  view.'     'Very  good;   one   can   see" all  round.'    T don't think your horses find  the "grass refreshing on the, hill.', "'Not  very   refreshing,    but  strong.'     There  was, in fact, no grass on the hill, nor  any  shrub   but  the   one   called^wire-  wood, from the close approximation .of  its twigs "to that attenuated preparation of iron which- is used for making  knitting-needles,*   card-teeth, - fishing-  hooks,   and   such   small   notions;   and  upon  which  wood,  down  to. its roots,  the famished horses gleaned until compassionate   humanity  cut  the"  halters,  and   permitted   them   to   dash   to   the  river  and .its" grassy  banks, "and  become the steeds of the foe."  By this time three horsemen were  seen riding up.

A stolon sheep on his back would  have boon a jewelled star on his breast  compared to the fixed fact of that assassin revolver under his midshipman's  coat. Confusion filled his bosom; and  for a momont his honor and shame  contended for the mastery. To try  and hide it, or pull it out, expose it,  and fling it away, was the question;  but with the grandson of Truxton it  was a brief question. High honor prevailed. The clean thing was done.

Then breathed the boy  easier and deeper." ^  As a result of his bravery, Boale was  intrusted by Commodore Stockton with  dispatches for Washington and was  ordered to proceed there with Kit Carson, a journey of immense labor and  danger. After they reached the Gila,  they found traces of Indians and Carson's experience foresaw a night attack :  "When he considered that the psychological moment had come,- from indications that were anything but enlightening to his companions, Carson  mot Indian strategy with the trapper's  ruse. Carson and Beale and the other  riflemen cooked their supper rather  early in the evening, and wrapped in  their blankets threw themselves on, the  grass, apparently to sleep, but as soon  as it was dark the men were ordered  to rise and to march forward for something more than a mile, again to picket their animals and to arrange their  pack-saddles so that they might serve  as a protection from the arrows of thc  Indians.

They dared  not approach near enough to see, for  in that case they knew the fate that  awaited them from the unerring aim  of Kit and his companions. After  many, random shots and many unearthly yells the discomfited savages  fled before the approach of dawn. And  this was the last serious attempt made  by the "horse Indians" to prevent the  bearers of dispatches from crossing  their territory."  "We had already overtaken and passed several largo wagon and cattle  trains from Texas and Arkansas, mostly, bound for California. With them  were many womon and children; and  it was ��������������������������� pleasant fo stroll into their  camps in thc evening and witness the  perfect air of comfort and being-at-  home that they presented.

For a moment longer the  Utah eyed Felipe, and then, with an  indescribable grunt, pushed tho rifie  from him, and lashing his horse furiously, rode away from us at full speed.  Felipe gave us a sly wink, and uttered  the highly original ejaculation���������������������������'Cara-  jo.' "  Beale was a sufficiently strong man  to champion the Modoc Indians at a  time when it needed some courage to  (ell the truth concerning* thc treatment  they had received and that led to thc  uprising. He addressed a letter to the  J-tcpublicaii of Chester, Pennsylvania,  which contains the following notable'  appeal:  "Lot us pause for a moment before  committing ourselves to a policy more  savage and remorseless,than that of the  Modocs whom we propose to smite hip  and thigh. Let us ask ourselves if Ave  are not reaping what .we have sown,  and if the treachery to which the gallant and lamented Canby fell a victim  is not a repetition of a lesson which we  ourselves have taught those apt scholars, thc Indians? Are we to think ourselves blameless when we recall tho  Chivingfon massacre? In that affair  the Indians were invited to council  under Hags of truce, and the rites of  hospitality, sacred even among the Bedouins of the desert, were violated as  well as all military honor, for these  poor-wretches, while eating tlie sacred  bread and salt, were ruthlessly fallen  upon and slaughtered to the last man.  The Picgan massacre was another affair in which we industriously taught  the uncultivated savages the value of  our pledges; and if we are correctly  informed thc very beginning of the Modoc war was an attempt while in the  act of council to which they had beon  invited to make'Captain Jack and two  others prisoners. As to the bloody  character of Indian warfare, as far as  wo can see," it is carried on by us with  about the same zeal. ' We read of a  sergeant in .the service of the United  States who in the late attack on the  Modocs 'took the scalp of Scar-face  Charley, who was'found wounded in  the lava beds.' And if we desire to feel  very good and free from barbarism  we have only'to read what comes to  us side by., side with news from thc  Modocs of the humane and civilized  treatment wc are'meting out to our  brothers in Louisiana, who differ from  us on political questions; or recall the  massacre and robbery ancl mutilation  "of. unoffending Chinese, which was  committed in broad daylight by American citizens in California a year or so  ago."       -..._.

Up to  the present time Enderby has made  no move to oflicially recognize the  visit of the distinguished party.

It will  be to Enderby's honor *'f some simple  but earnest recognition of the visit  is expressed at the depot if His Majesty's train is held at tne station in  passing down the line.

EKfdBRBY  POLITICAL-  One of the most diflicult things for  the amateur player in any game of  sport to learn is to quit the game  when it is finished. The tendency is  general to gather at some convenient  place the morning or the day after  and play the game over again���������������������������tell  what might have happened if the little dog Towser hadn't stopped to  chase his tail. We see it in almost  everything. It is a weakness most of  us* are prone to indulge in���������������������������sometimes in matters of real moment.  The past week we nave seen individual citizens who favored the railway track school site endeavoring to  convince themselves and others that  when the citizens voted two to one  in favor of the site on the Sharpe  property,-the matt-er^was not settled.  One citizen even went so far as' to  write and'circulate a petition asking  the School Board to "place the school  three blocks nearer the railway track  but on the low lying land on the  Sharpe property. And after he ha*d  circulated the* petition and had it  signed by probably half a hundred  people he, himself, came to the conclusion that the site his petition was  asking for was no place'for a school  house. Undaunted,   however,    the  same individual with ethers, asked  the School Board to look into the  possible purchase of the properties  embraced in the city biock bound by  George, Knight, Regent and Sicamous streets, a block and a half  nearer the business centre oi the town  than the site selected and voted upon  by the ratepayers. Mr. Taylor s^tnt  some days going- into the ir.-ittci of  price with the various in iiviclual owners of lots in this block, ar:-l states  that he believes thc propositi ou is  not feasible,   even    if __t_*icre_\\as_no  Mr. Geo. Packham, of the Enderby  Board of Trade,   is    quietly doing a  splendid work in connection with the  boosting program    thc Board is preparing to carry    out this winter and  spring.     He has circulated a petition  which it is   proposed shall go before  the City Council,  asking that a special tax be levied to raise the sum of  $3,000  for    advertis ng purposes,  the  said special    tax   to   continue    each  year for a number* of years.   The majority   of   ratepayers    have    already  signed the petition, but Mr. Packham  wants to get   every   property owner  on the petition   before presenting it.  This is the   position taken by the  Board of Trade:    If the district and  town are to be pushed Jonvard an effective advertising campaign must be  carried out.   This requires money.   If  the money is not to be had it is useless to attempt to do the work in a  half measure.  Another means of popular publicity  has been placed in the hands of the  execut ve of the Board. It consists  of a bi-monthly journal which will bo  published and circulated by the Board  with the assistance of the businessmen of Enderby.  "HOW'S YOUR P/.TE"  An eminent brain specialist of Paris  states that _ within. 500 years..there  will scarcely be a hair on any. woman's head,- and- that the men will  lose their hair 200 years before that  time., Baldness will ��������������������������� then be fashionable for both men and women.  The development of bruin power of  the human race will precede the loss  of its hair, he declares, and to have  curly locks will be a reflection on the  intellect of the wearer Kome hundred  years - hence. This important pronouncement will not materially retard the sale of hair restorer, however, nor lessen the demand for wigs,  rats and other hair goods for the  next year or two.

We mention these matters only to point  out the folly of those interested in  attempting at this late hour to defeat the expressed will of the rate-  Payers. The matter of school site  is or should be settled. The School  Board, after three months of investigation, placed before -he people the  only" two" "sites"" wliich" they deemed  at all suitable for a maiding of such  splendid proportions as the new  building is to be. The ratepayers  were asked to choose wliich site they  preferred. - They voted U*o to one in  favor of thc site on laised ground  and convenient to the majority of the  townspeople. It would seem that  the vote of the ratepayers was sufficiently strong to have settled the  matter for everybody. But the individual real estately interested in  seeking a change was not satisfied to  abide by the vote taken, hence these  other selections.  So far as wc can learn from the  Board of School Trustees, there will  be no change in the selection of site.  Mr. Fulton, who, in the absence of  Mr. Taylor, chairman of thc Board,  took hold of the school question and  presented it clearly and concisely before the public meeting, slates without any equivocation, that the people  have expressed their choice of site,  and that so far as ne i.s concerned,  the school is going to be built on the  DROWNED IN OKANAGAN LAKE  While bathing in Okanagan Lake at  Kelowna, on Saturday, a week ago,  Mrs. Neil McMillan, of Seattle, stepped into a hole and was carried beyond her depth by the waves and  d.rowne.tLan=.sight=of-her--girl=compan-=  ions with whom she was bathing.  ���������������������������$-4*"$-$*-$*-$*-j><$^  E.

DONT HAVE  Dangerous, unreliable, expensive Gasoline  home.  or   Ascetylene    Lamps in your  Buy: Aladdin Lamps  Premier Borden left Liverpool on his  homeward trip last Friday, after a  visit to England that was filled with  importance to the Dominion. He  himself has characterized the visit as  thc most enjoyable time of his life,  not alone because of tne most hospitable reception he received on all  hands, but. largely because of the importance of the questions he was permitted to discuss with the statesmen  of the Motherland. Premier Borden  stands high in the public esteem of  England. His dignified bf&ring on all  matters taken up by him quickly won  the respect of all, and tlie newspaper  criticisms of all party cclor are most  unanimous in praise of uis manliness  and clearness of vision.  The last question Mr. Borden had  to face in the Motherland was the  question of woman's suffrage. A delegation of militant suffragists called  upon Premier Borden a' few days before he took his , departure and urged  him to pass a law in parliament giving the women of Canada the right of  the ballot. Mr. Borden's repjy to  these ladies was in effect that the  women of Canada were capable of  taking care of themselves in this matter, and advised his callers to confine their operations to England. He  was told by the suffragist leader that  if he failed to comply with their de-,  mand they would begin a campaign  to divert emigration to Canada and  send English men and "vomen to Australia- instead. To this threat some  of the" English press, replied that it  would be of real benefit to Canada if  the emigrants controlled by' the militant suffragists were diverted to  some other colony. . . ~ ~-  -   The London Time's says:. "One jarring note was    struck characteristically enough' by   militant suffragists,  arid Borden's manly^ and dignified reply will raise.him yet higher in public esteem." _     , . *,  Comparing   Mr.  ' Borden's' position  on the naval ."question - with "the" posi-'  tion-^taken- by Sir'..Wilfrid'-Laurier in  his recent Ottawa speech,-the London  Morning Post   says:; 'The speech of  Laurier   "can'"'only/ , be' described: as  hostile to the British; naval'policy."'  The Post adds:    "If J.aurier has to,  thank the Lord,, that Canada has no  burden" of armament to" bear,, he has  also to thank the   instrument under  God's    providence   which   has saved  Canada from that burden���������������������������the British  fleet.     While   Mr.   Borden will have  the approval of the Imperial government in, his   campaign, he will have  the   active    opposition    of   Laurier.  Laurier's policy   is    to place all the  burden    upon   the   mother country ;  reap all of the advantages and take  none of the responsibilities.

The length of a freight car from
buffer to buffer is 39 feet, its weight
37,000 pounds, and. Its carrying capacity so.iioo pounds. Tho length of
thu.se loeomoth-es from pilot to buffer
of the tender is about 09 feet, and
its weight, in working order, 17;" tons.
K.ich tend or carries Ti.OOO gallons of
water and 13 tons of coal. Each locomotive i.s of 15,000 horse power, anci
can haul on the level at least 75 cars,
or on an average of iiO cars over the
whole system. String these ears in
one long line and they would reach a
distance of 92 milos���������from ^Montreal
more than half-way to Quebec.
Thc 12,fj00 freight cars would make
up 250 trains, and if they were to
start, say from Calgary, af intervals
of one hour, running on a regular
schedule of 20 miles an hour, nearly
ten days and a half would elapse between the dispatching of*the first and
of the last, train. When the last train
left* Calgary, there would be a grand
procession from the Rockies to the Atlantic and 2,000 miles out on its depths
���������if if. were possible to extend tho rails
on the ocean���������and that i.s two-thirds
of fhe watery way to tho Old Country. The 5,000-mile parade would
practically reach around one-fifth of
the globe The distance from Calgary
to Montreal is 2,251-miles, and the run
would occupy four and a quarter days.
If the cars were unloaded promptly,
the first train could reach Calgary, on
the return trip, two days before the last
one had  been dispatched east.
Each car carrying 40 tons, the total
capacity of thc new cars would be half
a million tons, more, than enough cargo for fifty ships of the largest cargo-
carrying* type in the world, which have
a capacity of 10,000 tons. ,

machinery of factories that would keep
nearly four hundred thousand persons
employed. ,_t
The trains themselves, with the
"runs" averaging, say, 125 miles between divisional points, would require
seventeen crews of five men each, between Calgary and Montreal, a total of
So men, and the 250 trains would need-
an army of trainmen. 21,250 strong, if

(he continent of North America, from
Halifax to Vancouver, over seven
times. And they would have a carrying capacity of 2,700,000 tons, on the
one trip, and with last year's equipment over twenty-two and a half millions of tons woro carried during the
year. " 	
All of this shows that tho C.P.TI.'s
equipment is something colossal, and
lhat its $19,000,000 purchase means a
great deal more than appears on the
face of it.
"Few people know that Chicago has
been in eight different counties of Illinois," said George C. Greenville. "It
was first placed within the limits of
Madison county, Illinois then being a
Territory, September 14, 1S12.
"Subsequently it was included in the
following counties seriatim: Edwards
in 1S14; Crawford, 1S10; Clark, after
the Territory was admitted as a State,
LSI!); Pike, 1S21; Fulton, 1S23; Peoria,
1S25, under the jurisdiction of which it
remained until thc creation of the
county of Cook, January 15, 1S31.
"The name of the city, too, has been
spelled more than a dozen ways.
Father Hennepin called it Che-cau-
gou; La Salle, Shecagou; on an old
French map of 16S2, Chekagou; on
another old map (1673) in the Historical Society library at Madison, Wis., it
is Chicaugua; Father Gravier (1G90)
wrote it Chicagoua, and in 1700 St.
Sosme wrote it variously Chikagu, Chicagou, Chicaqu and Chicago, he being
the first to give the letters the arrangement which finally was settled upon as
the authorized spelling. Charlevoix
gave the same spelling in 1721. In the
Greenville treaty (as revised) it is Chikagu.

I'd like to sneak away today

And loaf beside a little stream
Where long ago I used to dream.
Barefooted I would like to be,

The charms of that old lishing hole,
When I had but a hickory pole.
I'm starting out at break of day ..
To fish oui yonder in the bay
With costly tackle, shining bright,
But I shall miss the old delight;
And I shall wish that I could be

That bare of head, barefooted lad.
Who only home-made tackle had,

,-b.J ENDERBY PRESS AND  WALKER'S WEEKLY  __  XL  A Gainful Occupation  (By W. Edson Smith)  Thc fal-visaged, pimply young* man  with the soro eyelids gazed bitterly  down over the shabby roll-top desk.  "You'd hotter swipe the pennies oil a  dead man's eyes," he growled sulkily.  At this ancient sarcasm the dissipated face ot the employment agent  underwent a lightning change. It  stiffened coldly, and a sneer twisted  the good-natured mouth. Wells  sLarcd insolently up at his visitor.  "What's the matter with you, Hanson?" he queried sharply. "You registered only two weeks ago. You must  think that office positions are as thick  as flies."  Hanson shuffled his feet indefinitely.  "When a fellow pays you good  money, he, ought to get some consideration���������������������������seems that way to me," hc  said.  Wells jammed some papers into a  pigeonhole. Then he tipped his re-"  volving chair backward at a sharp  angle, putting one knee against the  edge of tho desk.  '^You're getting all the consideration  that is coming to you," he said with  finality. "You paid a fee for the privilege of filing your application with mc.  It was distinctly understood that there  was to be no strings to your measly  little old two dollars. I told you at thc  time, the chances for a man with no  experience were far and few, but you  were crazy to get aboard���������������������������then. I  suppose that you've run across a good  job driving a dray, or something of  that sort, and think you could use two  dollars���������������������������eh? 1 don't see it that way.  If I hear of any < vacancy that you  match up to, I'll let you know."  Hanson glowered. "You're a hell of  a business man,' ain't you?" he remarked heavily with near irony.  "That's what I am," came the curt  rejoinder. "Anyhow, I'm,.not easily  worked. Can I do anything more for  you today?" he queried in polite con-  - elusion. "My time is quite taken up,  but of course "  After Hanson had shambled out and  down the hall, after the door of th'e descending* elevator  had   slithered  open  ,and'   clashed    shut,    the    intelligence  broker still.sat motionless, staring* at  lhe wall.    -And the wall was not' far  away, for Wells had cramped quarters;  a"* mere, three-angled nick in the very  corner of a many-storied building. The  , outer side was set with three windows  '' ���������������������������in fact, three windwos might be said  " to form the'.outer side.    Through' them  floated the traffic grind from one of the  '- busiest-,slrecls~in town. _'.- The "broker's  desk was_lclose to the,_door so that he  ~J, could look over-it at-whoever entered.  .This.was a convenient arrangement.   A  - lift of the eyebrows and a practiced  shake of-the head was sufficient to send  . many of*' his less . insistent clients  stolidly, down the'hall again. ' In;the  front angle of-.the .office .was a type-  ', writer desk.   Whether this was;occu-  . "pied by a stenographer depended hot so  much on thc amount of correspondence  . as-on the condition ~! of the treasury.  Employment agents are accustomed to  -"** precarious existences.  AVells had a hundred romantic stories  filed away behind his eyes, and half  forgotten. He'did-not deal in, servant  maids," nor yet in railway hoboes. To  him, came the eager youngsters "with  their little mockery of knowledge acquired at ono of the hundred business  ' _ colleges, cheerfully pouring their attainments into his cynic ears; modestly requesting secretaryships to heads  of corporations. To him came desert-  , ed wives, fearfully eager to take up tho  bitter task of earning their daily bread;  pitifully sure that their worldly knowledge���������������������������salvage of a day gone by-  would stand them in good stead. To  him men with hair of silver grey, proud  __beggars who were stumbling down that  long ladcler to U"Te~stars, taunte"d~and=  laughed at by climbing youth.  Every one came. A steady stream of  something that was once crystal with  hope but was now muddied with a tributary despair trickled into the room  with its one door. It might have been  a confessional. And yet he was young,  was Wells. That is, he was young in  these things���������������������������he was slender and his  brown hair had no streaks of gray; and  - his-skin-was-smooth-as-a boy's But  his eyes spoke eloquently of the thousands of troubled years that had been  left with him by his petitioners���������������������������victims���������������������������what you will.  Just now he sat tilted back in a rare  solitude and gave himself over to those  pitiless ones���������������������������the blue devils.  "That fellow was right," he groaned,  "I'm exactly what he said I was. Tag  along, year after year, listening to  tales of woe from Tom, Dick and  , Priscilla, ancl never lay up the price of  a drink. Sit here like a cheerful little  cricket, chirp at whoever comes in and  change their luck. And then hear  them say that I'm nary cricket, but a  bloodthirsty spider, merely because I  ask them for a frugal slice of their first  month's salary. It's 'Oh, Mr. Wells,  kind Mr. Wells, dear Mr. Wells, if you  will get me that be-yew-ti-ful position  I will be eternally in your'debt!" And  confound it, when I do���������������������������they are eternally in my debt."  Arising, he went over to the farthest  window and stared mournfully into the  street from his second-story vantage  place, standing with one foot on the  low sill. Wells was distinctly shabby.  He never seemed to have time, money,  or inclination to attire himself like a  'Heimer model. A triflle down at the  heel a trifle baggy at the knee, and a  trifle of a leaning toward last season's  style, so far as any style at all was  distinguishable. That   was   Wells.  Some people said that he had been disappointed in love; some inferred that it  was a terrible thirst. Neither supposition was absolutely correct. It was  just Wells.  There was a tentative fumbling of  the door knob by 'some one in the hall  without. The meditating one straightened up to the limit of his lazily  stooped shoulders, yawned once at the  September afternoon in general, once  at himself in particular, and forthwith  took the two steps necessary to steal  the base of the chair behind the desk.  This action seemed to be automatic.  So, too, was the rapid rush of his fountain pen across a sheet of paper. The  latter must certainly have been automatic.   What he wrote was this:  "I'm a dub. I'm a'gyasl'acutus. It's  about time I was being good to myself  i'or a while."  Having written this very important  paragraph three times, Mr. Wells  blotted it, placed it in a pigeonhole, and  then glanced up with the trite, "What  can I do for you?"  It was a girl who came doubtfully,  hesitatingly, around his desk, and, at  his inviting nod, sank weariedly into  the chair near him. She was a demure, graceful little thing, nineteen  perhaps���������������������������fragile and "slender. Her  silky brown hair showed smoothly  combed, and she wore an unworldly  frock of simple white stuff with infinitesimal flowers scattered here and  there in its pattern���������������������������a dress which  would have charmed birds or bees, or  country lads, maybe, in some old-  fashioned garden. But birds and bees,  and gardens were hopeless!}' far away,  and the delicate face was tinged with a  pallor that should not have been there.  "Mr. Wells?" she inquired faintly.  "Yes."  "���������������������������I���������������������������" she hesitated. "I would like  a position, if you please."  Wells considered soberly. "Will you  take it with you?" he queried at last  with a twinklc.-  - The girl surprised him. She smiled  straight back into his eyes and nodded  as though understanding the bit of  humor. -   .  "I don't suppose that was the way to  say if," she returned quietly; "but you  must make allowance. I'm not used to  this���������������������������to getting a place."  The listener suppressed a sigh. There  were so many girls who resembled her  in that one particular. She apparently  divined his thoughts.  . "I do need a position very, very badly," she added earnestly. "Anything at  all���������������������������oh, anything at.all that I can do!"  This last came out with frantic eagerness. -And then , the cough���������������������������a tearing,  strangling struggle with disease than  tinged her "cheeks", a flaming red, and  left little crimson-flecks upon her handkerchief.-"-"'-'* "~ '���������������������������'/,- ' /{-:-'���������������������������- '- I -**  Wells steeled himself with an armour  of professional, apathy. .- It was one of  the pitifully impossible 'cases.      -  "Out here for your health, I suppose?',' he _ questioned in perfunctory  fashion after she had struggled into a"  panting silence.  The 'girk nodded without speaking,  her. lovely gray eyes fastened upon his.  He picked',up a steel'paper-cutter and  made angry jabs with it at the desk  blotter. Among ��������������������������� other things he  thought of a trapped bird..'       -    -  "Ever do any office work?", he asked  helplessly, following the old routine. ���������������������������  "No," she replied softly," "I have  never   worked���������������������������at   anything." She  stopped, then went on as' if a further,  explanation was necessary. "My home  is up 'north���������������������������in a town called Hawthorn. I got this" awful cough two  years ago. And last winter it was so  much worse the doctor said it was my  only,chance���������������������������to come to a climate like  this " She faltered into a momentary, piteous silence. Wells had  heard so many variations to the theme  that hc made no" direct comment. Instead he sought to relieve the tension  of the narrative.  i:^"Fath������������������r^Irish'"?"=h"e~aske'"dr:q"uizzicallyf  The girl looked at him, startled for  one second,  then smiled relievedly at  his friendly regard.  "You mean my eyes," she said simply. "Yes, he was Irish. My name is  Kathleen Desmond. But my mother is  French," she added with quaint frankness. The shadow stole over her face  a^ain.  "Wc didn't have much money," she  continued,- "Mother-and--I������������������ lived-alone  in a tiny cottage"���������������������������there was a. caress  in the slow words���������������������������"and now, after all,  the doctor here says that it's no use,  that I must go farther south." Miss  Desmond hesitated, regarding the man  with gravity. "I cannot ask my  mother for money," sho resumed; "she  has no way of getting more than just  enough to pay my board hero. And [  thought of finding something to do, so  that I could save enough to get a place  where I can be truly well. I hope that  I haven't taken up too much of youi  time," she concluded with sweet courtesy.  "Oh, no! I suppose you can write  legibly?"  "I think so. I might show you."  She looked at him doubtfully.  "Better fill out one of these applications���������������������������over on the table���������������������������there. Answer the printed questions. I can get  an idea from that of your penmanship."  Without a word she seated herself at  the table she indicated and commenced  on one of the lengthy blanks, The  man followed the movement of the  slim fingers for a second. Then his  eyes roved to a box of envelopes on the  floor by the typewriter desk. Those  five hundred envelopes, had to be addressed before morning. It was one  of the odd lots of work Wells hated,  but that were often thrust upon him  by overburdened chief clerks. They  seemed to think that he kept a row of  office girls all ready on a long shelf.  H'm! This one might as well have  the work. Mayer paid 10 cents a hundred.   Fifty cents.     Perhaps it would  awray and not bother him any more.  Heaven knew she ought to be* in bed���������������������������  somewhere in a hospital. He took the  paper which she held timidly out to  him and looked at it absently.  "Yres, very good," he said. "Now,  Miss���������������������������er���������������������������Miss Desmond, I happen to  have a littlo work on hand that can be  done right here in the office this afternoon. Would you like to try it? It's  two o'clock now, and you could work as  long as you liked."  'I'd be so glad!" exclaimed the girl  assentingly.   "I don't suppose you can  imagine what it means to me to "  "Yes, just so," interpolated Wells  hastily. "It is some addressing I want  you to do. Here is the card index with  the address. There are about five  hundred���������������������������more or less. Take them in  turn. "I'll put thc envelopes up here in  front of you���������������������������so.    Get the idea?"  "I���������������������������I think so," she replied slowly.  "This is the way, is it not?" 'She  copied the contents of thc first card on  an envelope in a dainty, cramped hand.  "Sure! That's it exactly!" said  Wells carelessly. "Ancl, say���������������������������I'm go-'  ing to be out on the street for the  greater part of the afternoon. If any  one drops in to see me, tell them tc  come again at five. Same for the  'phone."  Miss Desmond propounded a question  full of quiet eagerness as he turned to  leave the room. "How much���������������������������could  you tell mo much I'll get for this?"  He hesitated, hand* upon the open  door. After" all, such' sums were terribly .inadequate.  "Why���������������������������er���������������������������Mayer, the man who is  having those done, pays 10 cents. Of  course, I understand it isn't much.  But I thought it would give you a start  in the right direction."  "Oh, I think it's fine!" she exclaimed  happily? "I'm thankful to you for giving me the chance."  It was somewhat after fiv<_ that he  came in again and found the girl still  bending over the unaccustomed task.  He busied himself at'the telephone for  a time, and then leaned back and looked over at the frail toiler.  "Better not keep at it too long," he  advised easily; "if you don't get them  all done you can come down in .tho  morning bright and early���������������������������nine or so���������������������������  and finish them up. When you leave  tonight pull the door shut, if you "will  please," he added by way-of farewell.  "It's a spring lock.   Good night!"  It was one morning almost a week,  afterwards that Miss Desmond came  into the office again. Wells was. alone.  It was early and the procession of .applicants had not formed up as yet. I-Ie  was feeling badly that morning. There  were three or four vacant posions in  view which . would* easily net him*- a  hundred dollars in "commissions���������������������������and  no one to .fill. them. ,;Moreovor, .Wells  had'dined the' previous-. evening io.  long drawn-out- fashion,, "with many  strange drinks to punctuate'the record  "of the dining.; "And he had breakfasted  on black-coffee-and the memory of. a  Turkish bath.^ Z- So"-the -effect -of an  otherwise'cordial greeting was somewhat spoiled; by -.the. luridness "of .his  eyes!

"I suppose that kind of work  is a bit too strenuous at present���������������������������eh?"  -"Perhaps,".assented the girl; "but I  hope to get something easier at Santa  Fe. It's there I'm going.

Thanks to  you I will have nearly fifty."  Wells stared blankly. The girl  coughed for a long, agonizing minute  and, when the spasm'was over, sat with  hor face hidden in her hands. The  man at the desk stirred uneasily.  "Let me sec," he queried; "how much  were you to receive for that bunch of  addressing?"  ."Ten cents, you said," replied the girl  simply: "I did'four hundred andsixty-  three. That would make forty-six dollars and thirty cents. Do you know,  Mr. Wells, that is the first���������������������������the very  first money I ever earned myscif. I  can hardly belive that it is really true."  The girl's eyes shone like misty stars.  "And I'm so happy to think that the  money will be the means of making ma  well."  There was an interval of silence, if  you misname silence something which  was really a medley of morning noises  from the clashing street.  "Uh-huh!" vouchsafed Mr. Wells at  last, somewhat jerkily. He gulped  down a sigh and reached into a corner  for his checkbook. "I'd better pay you  the amount right now," he said, "before  I forget it. And I hope you find the  Mexican air as advertised."  A little later hc inspected himself  carefully in the depths of a certain  spacious mirror downstairs.  "I reckon you might mix me a nerve-  builder, Jas." This to the white-coated one. "I've had a shock. Also I've  had inserted in my understanding the  fact that I'm a helluva business man."  A Fishing Expedition to  Sugar Lake B.C.  (By V. H. in Rod and Gun)  In June of last year I found that I  could spare a little time from the  strenuous life I had been leading as an  Albertan prairie farmer, and at once I  began to look about for something that  would provide a thorough change. My  thoughts naturally turned towards a  trip across the Rocky Mountains into  beautiful    British    Columbia. One  could scarcely imagine a more pronounced change from the bleak, treeless prairie than the fertile valleys and  flowing rivers, thick forests and snowcapped hills of British Columbia. Accordingly, my decision made, I journeyed from Calgary to Vernon, there  to pay a long-promised visit to a  friend who had a fruit farm in that  part.of,the country. What a gorgeous  trip it was across the mountains! No  words of mine can express the beauty  and grandeur of its scenery. ���������������������������" I was  compelled to spend ia night at Sicamous Junction to take the branch line  clown the Okanagan Valley. The  C. P. R. have built a magnificent Hotel  on the banks of Shuswap Lake) and  had it not been for the mosquitoes I  should have liked to have made a longer stay there.-as the fishing in the lake  was in full swing at thc time. I found  that my friend at Vernon was as willing as I to take a holiday, so after  spending a few days on his farm wc  decided to put in a fortnight camping  out and fishing on Sugar Lake, which  sheet of water is about sixty miles east  of Vernon.  ,, ���������������������������>  AVe collected our equipment and  borrowed a tent, in-Vernon, going oil  from there to Lumby. Lumby is a  small village reached by motor stage  and is about twenty miles "on the way  to the lake. Wo spent a couple of'days  there fishing the numerous small  creeks/ surrounding it; the sport was  good though the fish were all small.  With considerable difficulty we succeeded in hiring a man with a team  and rig to take, us the balance of" the  "way. The latter part of the trail was  bad and only fit for pack horses, we  were told." However, we found a'man  who was*"* willing to try it, and'we had  the wisdom to charter him for the re-"  turn journey. It was 'both hot and  dusty, but we.made good time the first  twenty-five mile's.' After that it was  wretched travelling. ., Just a rough  trail had ben made by*- the, settlers for  sleighing, in the-winter time-and-some  of the trees had beenleft a" foot or two.  high. ?In some-cases we had; to chop  these, down and', had ..also "to".chop a"  couple" of:,windfalls . out"- of" thei way.'  The least said.-about'the.-fholes.and  grades the" better. ' "Fortunately "the  horses were willing' and the" rig strong,  so no harm was-done. We, arrived-at  last on the banks of Shuswap river and  found our. way- up to the lake, barred  by- a swiftly flowing creek, which our-  drivei- .refused to cross. We -bundled  out*our. stuff, and as the rig returned  to a stopping house,about fifteen miles  on the road home, we struck' up to the  creek y to" *try and., find a. way across  without getting our blankets and provisions wet. Fortunately .we found a  windfall stretching right across the  creek, and following a track for about  three-quarters of a mile we came to  the lake side. "There'we found an old  Norwegian living in a log shack he  had built himself. Pie was more than  seventy years -old and had just taken  up a homestead there. Fancy going to  live alone sixty miles from a railroad,  and voluntarily undergoing-, all the  hardships and insecurity of a pioneer's  life at that age!   Yet the old man was  exciting than trolling, and would  rather catch a two-pounder with my  rod than a six-pounder on the line.  Wo landed at Rainbow Creek and had  an enjoyable bath, though we had to  light a smudge lo keep off the mosquitoes while we were drying. We  boiled a couple of the trout we had  just caught for dinner. We had no  luck in thc afternoon, but in the even-,  ing we caught a lot of fish with our  rods in front of the tent at the mouth  of the lake. It was hero that we always had our best sport; rowing  gently up and down under the bank  wo never failed to have some luck. We  found thc best bait was the natural  moth or butterfly. Tho lake was  really too high to get the very best  fish.  One night we awoke to find ourselves  lying in water ancl our tent pitched on  an eminence, an island.    The lake had  risen nearly two feet- during the night, ,*  and wc had to, shift our tent back into  the woods.    One clay Ave tried fishing  below the falls, where, .when the water  is   low,   one  can   catch   any  quantity.  We  had , no  luck,  however.    Although  a terrible place to approach, the' Shus- ���������������������������  wap Falls are a magnificent-sight and  worth the trouble of getting to. There"  is  a scheme  on  hand  to  harness the'  falls and use thc power for an electric-  railroad.   ��������������������������� ,        ���������������������������  Oui- fortnight passed all too quickly.  *���������������������������"  Once, bur stay   was   enlivened   by- a  visit from three gold prospectors, whom    ���������������������������  we photographed, along with our-Nor--  wegian friend, standing in front of his'  shack.   We listened to many an interesting tale of the country, with which  '  they were familiar. ,    - **    ���������������������������  Our hunting was  a disappointment, ,-  for a couple   of   loons   and   as   many  ,.  chipmunks   and  water; snakes   as -we   -'  liked  was  the  sum  total..

I-Ie lent us his  boat to fetch our baggage up in. It  was easy enough to take the boat  down, but when it came to pulling her  up again heavily laden it was another  matter. We each took a turn at it, but  the current was too strong, and each  time we were washed clown stream and  had to creep up the side again to hang  01l_iQ_.fL. convenient^ .tree.

I had no difficulty in bringing  tho boat up empty the next day. It  was a beautiful spot in*which to camp.  By the timo we had things fixed up the  old man had a delicious supper of fried  I rout ancl fresh bannocks ready for us,  to which we did full justice. After  supper we lighted a big fire and lay on  our blankets, pipes full on, at peace  with the world, watching the flickering  flames, listening to the croaking of the  frogs and dreaming of the big fish we  would catch on the morrow.  The following day, after a hearty  breakfast, we got off up the lake in the  boat. The lake is about nine miles  long by six wide with an island in the  middle, and is fed by the upper Shuswap river and numerous,creeks, off the  mouths of which there is excellent  fishing. The weather was perfect and  in a little while we both stripped to  the waist to enjoy a delicious sun bath.  We had two trolls out, a long and a  short one. The long one, which was a  large spoon bait, which we always  found the most successful, caught thc  first fish, a fine Dolly Varden trout  which weighed eight pounds. It was  the only big fish we caught that day,  but we got numerous smaller ones  varying from half a pound to three  pounds. Some we caught trolling and  some with fly rods. I always think fly  fishing is much better sport arid more  A GYPSY VACATION ,  Devotion to camp life first suggested '/i  (he idea, and having-plenty" of horses IV".  got a wagon-making concern to "supply;,-",  a good gear, like.that used for.a heavy*,  fruit  or vegetable wagon. ,     Tha box".";  built,,,thereon  is  light,,with  a canopy    '  top,' the upright supports <if which-are  -  heavy enough to support the addition-" i  al weight of the beds.

He  spent some of it over the bar ancl  carried away what its euphoniously  termed a "jag." Jt lasted until  Saturday, when he appeared before  Constable Bailey at the station platform, hatless, coatless and besmeared  with blood, ancl tolo a wild story of  being clubbed and robbed. He led  the Constable to the Company boarding house and into a room where he  alleged the assault took place. Thero  was found his coat and hat and a  bottle partly filled. Ke could not  ted very clearly how it happened,  but later in the evening laid a complaint against one of the young men  working in the saw mill. The young  man was arrested, but his friends appeared and vouched for his clean reputation. Magistrate R'jscman listened to their evidence'and rather  than hold him in jail over Sunday  and Labor Day, allowed him to go  on $100 bail.  Tuesday the case was called. Harrison could not make a case. He was  not any clearer- on the matter than  on Saturday, ancl the charge was dismissed.  Tuesday afternoon Harrison was  making himself generally troublesome  about town, and late i'i the evening  Constable Bailey was caLled to take  him out of the Opera House where he  was disturbing the peace.' The Constable finally located Harrison clown  town, and placed nim under arrest  for being drunk and disorderly. He  appeared before Magistrate Rosoman  on-Wednesday morning ancl was given  30 clays hard labor.  PROTECTION    AGAINST TYPHIOD  IF YOU WOULD BE POPULAR  If your principal object in life is to  be popular^ take the advice of Geo.  T. Angell, and take no active interest  in any of the battles of humanity or  of your town. Let other people' attack the things that ought to be attacked. .Say' "good Lord, good devil"  to everybody, and you ma/ be'a most  agreeable companion and run no risk  of ever"being crucified.    '    -  Owing to the prevalence of typhoid  fever in many parts of the Dominion  of Canada, the attention of the general public is called to tlie protection  afforded to this disease by thc inoculation of typhoid vaccine.  The vaccine may be injected by a  doctor, or in the oaser cf a doctor  not being at 'hand, a trained nurse  could carry out the procedure. The  first injection of vaccine, amounting  to a few drops of a sterile liquid introduced .under the skin, is followed  in ten days' time by a larger injection, ancl for greater security a third  ;may be given ten days after the second. A few hours after the first injection, a little headache ancl slight  malaise may be experienced, with tenderness about thc point of inoculation. This is seldom, sufficient to  cause^a man to stop his work, as by  the next morning he .usually feels as  well as usual. After tac second and  third injections no reaction is produced, the person seldom experiencing  any 'discomfort whatever.  It is significant that many large  employers of labor ha-/e gone into  this subject deeply, with gratifying  results, statistics having shown that  of those properly inoculated practically none have taken typhoid within  'a year, and protection is probably  afforded for a much longer period.  This method should appeal especially to friendly _ societies and labor  unions who pay benefits to their sick  members.  Typhoid  Vaccine    may  ne obtained  on    application    to    the   .Provincial  Board of Health, or from drug stores  W. 8APTY, M. D.,  Acting Secretary.  Here He Is  Swat Him!  Listen!
