Great is the respect of the average  juvenile mind of Enderby for that illustrious personage, Bob Bailev���������������������������City  Constable, water commissioner, guardian of the peace and linger of curfew. "Maw," asked .S-year-old Jim-  mie, the other evening when thunder  was roaring, "Maw, if the thunder'd  break the sky and God 'd fall out,  an' fall in the street, would Bob  Bailey put God in the coop?"  and throe of these very low.

The only excuse that can be found  for so few passing is that the teacher  having in hand the children in the  preparatory department had too  many children and too many lessons  to get through. This cannot be remedied, we understand, until we have  more school room.

"It's the one thins 1 miss in his pictures, because it's the one thing 1 most  admire���������������������������.strength, virility." She was  talking more rapidly as her enthusiasm  gathered headway. "A man's pictures  are, in a way, portraits of his nature.  Ho can't paint strong things unless he  is strong himself." n  Saxon felt his heart leap. It was  something to know that she believed  his canvasses reflected a quality of  strength inherent to himself.  "You and your master," she went  on, "are unlike in everything except  your style. Can you fancy yourself  hiding away from the world because  you couldn't face the music of your  own fame? That's not modesty���������������������������it's  insanity. When 1 was in Paris, everybody was raving about some new pictures from his brush but only his  agent knew where he actually was, or  where he had been for years."  "For the man," he acceded. "1 have  as small respect as you have, but for  .the work J have something like worship! 1 began trying" to paint, and I  was groping���������������������������groping rather blindly  after something���������������������������I didn't know just  what. Then, one day, J siood before  his 'Winter Sunset.' You know thc  picture?" She nodded assent. "Well,  when 1 saw it, I wanted to go out to  the Metropolitan entrance, and shout  L-ureka up and down Fifth Avenue.  Jt told me what J'd been reaching  through the darkness of my novitiate  to grasp. If seemed to me thai art had  been revealed to me. Somehow," the  man added, his voice falling suddenly  from ils enthused pitch to a dead, low-  one, "everything that comes to me  seems-to come by revelation!"  Into Duska's eyes came quick light  of sympathy, lie had halted before  her, ancl now she arose impulsively,  and laid a light hand for a moment on  his arm.  "I understand," she agreed.    'M^lhink  that for most artists to come as close  as you  have come would  be triumph  enough, but you���������������������������" she looked at him  a moment with warmth of confidence  ���������������������������"you can do a great.deal more."   So  ended her first lesson in tbe independence of art,  leaving the pupil's heart  beating more quickly than at ils commencement.  Jn  the  days   that  followed,  as  May  -.gave  way" to" June  ancl the: dogwood.  .- blossoms -dropped and withered .to bc  supplanted  by   flowering  locust   trees,  Saxon   confessed   to   himself   that   he  ...had  lost tho  first battle of lhe campaign.    He hud resolved that this close  companionship   should   be   plaLonically  hedged about; that he would never allow himself to cross the frontier that  divided  the  realm  of friendship from  the hazardous territory of love. Then,  as the cool, unperfumed beauty of the  dogwood was forgotten for the" sensc-  stceping- fragrance .of   the   locust,   he  "knew that he was only trying to deceive  from the steeping fragrance of last  year's leaves. At the end was a view  that brought his breath in deep  draughts of delight.  For two hours, he worked, and only  once his eyes left the front. On that  occasion, he glanced back to see her  slim figure stretched with childlike ancl  unconscious grace in the long gras.i,  her eyes sussing unblinkingly and  thoughtfully up to the fleece that  drifted across the blue of the sky.  Clover heads waved fragrantly about  her, and one long-stemmed blossom  brushed her cheek. She did not see  him, and Lhe man turned his gaze back  to the canvas with a leap in his pulses.  After that, ho painted feverishly. Finally, he turned to find her at his elbow.  "What is the verdict?" he demanded.  She looked wilh almost tense eyes.  Her voice was low and thrilled with  wondering delight.  "There is something," she said slowly "lhat you never caught before;  something wonderful, almost magical.  I don't know what it is."  With a swift, uncontrollable gesture,  he bent a lillie toward her. His face  was the I'ace of a man whose heart  is in insurrection. Mis voice was im-  7)assioned.  "J know what il is," he cried. Then,  as she read his- looks, her cheeks  crimsoned, and it would have been superfluous for him lo have added,  "Love." Jle drew back almost with a  sl.-irt, and began to scrape the paint  smears from bis palette. J-le had  quelled the insurrection. At least in  words,  he had  not broken  his vow.  For a moment, the girl stood silent.  She felt herself trembling; then, taking refuge in childlike inconsequence,  she peered over the edge of the cliff.  "Oh!" she exclaimed as though the  last few moments had not been lived  through, "there is thc most wonderful -  est flower!" Her voice was disappointment-laden. "And it's just out of  reach."  Saxon had regained control of himself. He answered with a composure  too calm fo bc genuine and an almost  flippant note that rang false.  "Of course. The most wonderfulest  things are always just out of reach.  -The edelweiss grows only among the  glaciers, and lhe excelsior crop must  be harvested, on i naccessible pinnacles." "  . He camo. and looked over the edge,  stopping close to" her shoulder. , J-fe  wanted Lo demonstrate his regained  command of himself. A delicate purple  flower hung on thc cliff below as  though it had been placed there to  lure men ovci' the edge.   . _  He looked down the sheer drop, appraised with his eye the frail support  of a-jutting root, then slipped quietly  over, resting by his arms on the ledge  of rock and groping i'or the root with  his toe. . .  With a short, gasping exclamation,  the" girl bent forward and seized bolh  'himself!

With the  realization camo fhe resolution of silence. J-le was a man whose life might  at any moment reneAV itself in untoward developments. Until he could,  drag the truth from the sphinx that  guarded his secret, his love must be  as inarticulate as was his sphinx.

His   happiest  achievements   resulted  from  sketching  trips   taken   to   points  sho knew in   the hills,    lie had  called  her a dryad  when  she  first appeared  in  the woods, and  lie had been right,  for   she   knew   all   the.   twisting  paLhs  in  thc  tangle of the  knobs,  unbroken  and   virgin   save   where   thc   orchards  of   peach-growers   had   reclaimed  of   sloping  soil.    One   morning  at   Lhe  end of .Iune. they started out together  on   horseback,    armed    wilh    painting!  paraphernalia,    luncheon    and    rubber,  ponchos in Lhe event of rain.    For this1  occasion,   she   had   saved   a   coign   of-  vantage  she  knew,   where  his  artist's i  eye might swing out from  a  shelving1  cliff over miles nf. checkered valley ancl:  llat,  and  league  upon  league  of cloud  and sky.    She led  ihe  way   by  zigzag  hill roads where they  caught stinging1  blows from back-lashing branches and  up   steei),   slippery   acclivities.    It  was  one   of   the   times   when   Saxon   was  drinking lhe pleasant nd-tar of to-day, t  refusing to  think  of  to-morrow.    She,  sang as she n>de in advance, and he foi-  lowed  with  the pleasure of a man  to,  whom being unmounted brings a sense!  of  incompleteness.   lie  knew   that  hc j  rode no better than she���������������������������and he knew j  that he could ride.    Tn his ears was the I  exuberance  of  the  birds  saluting  the:  morning, and in his nostrils the loamy:  aroma stirred  by   their  horses'  hoofs.  cd.

In her man's saddle, she sat almost  rigidly erect, and the gaunlleted hand  that held the reins of the heavy cavalry bridle clutched them with unconscious Laulness of grip. Saxon's face  was a picture ol* struggle, and noither  spoke until they had come to the road  at Lhe base of the hill whero two  horses could go abreast. Then, he found  himself  quoting:  "Her hand was still on her sword hilt,  thc spur was still on her heel,  She had not> cast her harness of gray  war-dinted  steel;  High    on   her    red-splashed- charger,  beautiful, bold ancl browned,  Bright-eyed out of the battle, thc  Young Queen rode to be crowned."  He did not realize that he had repeated the lines aloud, until she turned  her face and spoke with something  nearer to bitterness than hc had ever  heard in her voice:  "Rode lo be crowned���������������������������did you say?"  Ancl she laughed unhappily.  CHAPTER VI.  For more than a week afler the ride  to. the cliff, Duska withdrew herself  from the orbiL in which Saxon revolved, ancl the man, feeling that she  wished lo dismiss him, in part at least,  used the "air line" much less frequently than in thc days,lhat had been.  Once when Steele had left the cabin  early, to dine at thc "big house," Saxon  protested that he must slay and write  letters. 1-Ic slipped away, however,  in the summer starlight, and took one  of fhe canoes from the boat-house on  the river. He drove lhe light crafl  as noiselessly and gloomily as a funeral barge along the shadow of thc  bank, the victim of tiller misery, and  his blackness of mood was intensified  when he saw a second canoe pass in  mid-channel, and recognized Steele's  tenor in lhe drifting strains of a. sentimental song. There was no moon,  and Lhc river was only a black mirror  for Lhc stars. Thc tree-grown banks  were blacker fringes of shadow, but  hc could make out a slender figure  wielding thc stern paddle with an easy  grace which hc knew was Duska's.  1-1 is sentiment was in no wise jealousy,  but it was in every wise heart-hunger.    _  When they did meet she was cordial  and friendly, but the old intimate regime had been disturbed, and for the  man the sun was clouded. He was lo  send a. consignment of pictures-to his  Eastern .agent for exhibition and'sale,  and hc wished Lo include several of  the landscapes he had'painted since  his "arrival at thc cabin. .Finding creative work impossible, hc devoted himself to lhat touching- up and varnishing which i.s largely mechanical, and  made frequent trips to town for tho  selection of frames.  So'much of his time had been spent  ul Hor lon House that unbroken absence would have been noticeable. -His  visits were, however, rarer, and on one  occasion Mrs. Horton made an announcement whieh.-he found decidedly  startling.  *'l have been wauling to lake a trip  to Cuba parly in tho fall, and possibly  go on io Venezuela where some old  friends are in the diplomatic service,"  she said, "but Mr. Horton pleads business, and I can't persuade Duska to  go with me."  Af   once,   Steele   had   taken   up   the  to be  admitted   to  thc  party  and   beginning  the  retloclion  of what she had a-few ,       .    ,      ...       ., ,.  moments before read in his own.

Back at the cabin, Steele found his  guest moodily pacing the verandah.  The glow of his pipe bowl was a point  of red against the black. The Kentuckian dropped into a chair', and for  a time neither spoke. ., ��������������������������� ���������������������������  At last, Steele said, slowly:  "Bob, I have just asked Duska if 1  had a chance."  ' The other man wheeled in astonishment. Steele had indeed maintained  his Platonic pose so well that the other  had not suspected the fire under what  he believed lo be an extinct crater.  His own feeling had been the one thing  he had not confided. They had never  spoken to each other of Duska in  terms of love.  "You!" ho, said, dully. "1 didn't  know���������������������������"  Steele rose. With his hand on the  door-knob, he paused.  ".Bob," he said, "the answer was the  old one. It's also been 'No.' I've had  my chance. Of course, I "really knew  it all tho while, and yet I had to ask  once more. I shan't ask again. It  hurts her���������������������������and 1 want to se her happy." He turned and went in, closing  the door behind him.  But Duska was far from .happy, however   much   Slcele   ancl   others   mighl  wish  to see her so. , She spent much  time in solitary rides and walks.    She  knew  now that she loved Saxon,  and  she knew that he had shown in every  wordless  way   that  he  loved   her,  yet  could she be mistaken?    Would he ever  speak, since he had not spoken at the  cliff?   -J-Ter  own  eyes  had  held  a declaration,   and   she   had   read   in   his  Lhat he understood  lhc message.    His  silence at lhat time must be taken lo  mean silence for all time.  (5 Saxon   had   reached   his   conclusion.  Hc knew that hc had hurt her pride,  had rejected his opportunity.   But that  might be a transient grief for her. For  him it would of course bc permanent.  Men  may love at twenty, and recover  ancl love again, even to Lhe number of  many   times,   but  to   live   to  the   age  which he guessed his years would total, and then love as he did,  was irremediable.   Jror just  Lhat reason,  hc  must remain silent, and must go away,  o enter her life,by thc gate she seemed  willing to open   for  him  would  mean  the  taking into  that sacred  inclosure  of every hideous possibility that clouded his own future.   He musL not enter  the gate, and. in order to be sure that  a second mad impulse would not drive  him  through it. be must put* distance  between himself and Lhe gale.  On one point, he temporized. Hc  was eager to do one piece of work thai  should be his masterpiece. The greatest'achievement of his art life must  be" her'portrait. He wanted to paint  it. not in Lhe conventional evening-  gown' in -which she seemed a young  queen, among women, .but .in the environment Lhat he "liked to" think was  her own by.' divine right. It. was the  dryad thatjie sought lo put on canvas. .   -  He asked her with so much genuine  pleading in his voice thai, she smilingly consented, and the sittings began in  the old-fashioned garden at Horton  House. She was posed under a spread  of branches and in such, a position that  Lhe sun struck down through the  leaves, kissing into color her cheeks  and oyes and hair. It was a pose thai  called for a daring palette, one which,  if he succeeded in getting on his canvas what hc felt, would give a result  whereon he might woll rest his reputation. Bul lo him il meant more than  just thai, for it was giving expression  to what he saw through his love of art.  and his art of love.  Thc hours given to the first sittings  were silent hours, but that was not  remarkable.    Saxon always worked  in  The man stood back and covered  the portrait, then, .'when the girl had  seated herself before the easel, he  stepped forward, and laid his hand on  the covering. lie hesitated a moment,  ancl his fingers on the blank canvas  trembled. He was unveiling the effort  of his life, and to him she was the  world. If he had failed! Then, with  a deft movement, he lifted the concealing canvas,, and waited.  For a moment, the girl looked with  bated breath, then something between ^  a groan and a stifled cry escaped her.  She turned her eyes to him, and rose  unsteadily from her seat. Her hands  went to her breast, and she wavered  as though she would fall. Saxon was  at her side in a moment, and, as ho  supported hor, he felt her arm tremble.  "Are you ill?" hc asked, in a frightened voice.  She shook her head, ancl smiled. She  had read the love-letters, and she had  read, too, what silence must cost him.  Other persons might see only wonderful art in the portrait, but she saw all  the rest, ancl, because she saw it, silence seemed futile.  "It is a miracle!" she whispered.  The man stood for a moment at her  side, then bis,,face became gray, and  he half-wheeled and covered it with  his hands.  The girl took a quick step to his side,  and her . young hands were on his  shoulders.  "What is it, dear?" she asked.  With an exclamation that stood for  Lhe breaking of all the dykes he had  been building and fortifying . and  strengthening through the past  months, he closed his arms around her,  and crushed her to him.  For a, moment, he was oblivious of  every lesser thing. The past, the future had no existence. Only thc present was alive and vital and in love.  There was no world but the garden,  and that was flooded with the sun  and the light of love. The present  could not conceivably give way to other  limes before or after. It was like the  hills that looked down���������������������������unchangeable  to  Lhc end of things!  Nothing else could count���������������������������could matter. Tho human heart ancl human  brain could not harbor meaner  thoughts. She loved him. She was in  his arms, therefore his arms circled  the universe. Her breath was on his  face, and life was good.  Then came the shock of realization.  His sphinx rose before him���������������������������not a  sphinx  thai kept  the secrets  of forty  his   words   and   smile  wercTwhore  perhaps  he himself had  a cri-  'mlnal  rocord.

"If you go."  she said  with ominous  quid ness of voice "1  shall come too."  _ Thi-   man   clainbei-ed    back    to    Lhe  li-di-'c,    "I'm not  going," he announced.

She  , laughed as she said lightly:  "For a man who is a great arlisl,  \ you are really very young and very  .' silly."  Iiis voice was hard.  "I'm   worse  than  lhat,"  he  acceded.  J-'or a momenL more, there was awkward silence; thon. Duska asked simply :  you    going    to    paint    any  gazing at the canvas mood  savagely,  he   answered  touch   it   now  shorlly;    "if   1  I  should   ruin  "'Aren't  more?"  lie was  ily, aimos  "Xo,"  were W  it."

They've exhausted the~Far-Knst,-and- are-weeping-i'or  new  worlds."  Saxon went back early that night,  and mio.- more tramped the woods.  Sleek- lingered, and later, while the  whippoorwills were calling and a small  owl plaintively lamenting, hc and  Duska sal alone on the while-columned   verandah.  "Duska," be said suddenly, "is thero  no chance for mc���������������������������no little ouLside  chance?"  She looked up, ancl shook her head  slowly.

"Js there no way I can remake or  remold myself?" he urged.

Perhaps, ihe man himself did not realizo  lhat he eould never again paint such  a. portrait, or any landscape that  would bo comparable with il, Somo  men write love-letters Lhat aro wonderful heart documents, but they write  thom in blaek and while, wilh words.  Saxon was not only writing a love-  letter, but was painting all thai his  resolve did not lot him say. He was  pulling into Lhc work pent-up love of  such force Lhat it was almost bursting  his heart. Here on canvas as through  somo wonderful safety-valve, hc was  passionately converting iL all into tho  vivid eloquence of color.  Jt had been his fancy, since the  picture had become something more  than a. strong, preliminary sketch, thai  Duska should not see it until it neared  completion, and she, wishing to have  her impression one unspoiled by fore-  tastcs. had assented to the idea. Each  clay after tho posing ended, and while  hc rested and let her rcsl, lhe face of  lhe canvas was covered wilh another  which was blank. Finally came the  Lime lo ask her opinion. The afternoon light had begun to change with  lhe hint of lengthening shadows. The  outdoor world was aglow wilh gracious weather and the air had the  wonderful, almost pathetic softness  lhat sometimes comes to Kentucky for  dead centuries, but onc������������������that held in  cryptic silence all thc future. He  could not offer a'lovo tainted with such  peril without explaining how tainted it  was., Now. hc must lollher everything.  "J love you," he found himself re-  pealingover and over; "I Iqveyou."  J-fe heard her voice, through-singing  stars:   - _      ���������������������������        .        ��������������������������� z   y'../...   ..  ' "J love you.

Standing there with her close to his  heart, and her own palpitating against  his breast, he felt more than a match '  for' mere facts and condilions. It  semed ridiculous that he had allowed  things lo bar his way so long. Now,  he was thrice armed, and * must,  triumph!  "I know now why the world was  made," he declared, joyfully.

And so the resolve lo be silent was  cast away, ancl afler it went the sudden resolve to tell everything. Saxon,  feeling only triumph, did not realize  that hc had, in one moment, lost his  second'and third battles.  An hour later, Ihey strolled back  together to*ward Lhc house. Saxon was  burdened with thc canvas on-which-he,���������������������������  had painted his masterpiece. They  wore silent, but walking on the milky  way, their feet stirring nothing meaner than star-dust, On the verandah,  Steele met thom. and handed hi.s friend  a mueh-forwarded letter, addressed in  care of the r,ouisvillo club whore he3,  had dined. It bore tho stamp of a  South American Republic.  It was not until he had gone to his  room that night that lho man had  timo to glance al it, or even to  mark its distant starting point. Then,  he tore open the envelope, and- road  this message:  "My Erstwhile Comrade: /  "Though I've had no line from you in  these years I don't flatter myself that  you've forgotten me.

The Key to Yesterday  (Continued)  u -  POSTAL NOVELTY IN BELGIUM  The Sunday label, in a new issue of  postage stamps, is a device whieh is ex-  - clusivelv Belgian.    Some twenty years  ago. in an access of Sabbatarian zeal,  a minister of posts adopted the dominical label, with a view to lessening Sunday-labor-in the post office.   The label  which forms part of' thc stamp as issued by  tho post office bears the in-  junetioii '' Not to deliver on Sunday,'' in  . French and in Flemish.    The" perforations extend all round c. the    complete  stamp and between thc label-and the  stamp proper, so that if it be urgent  that the letter or other packet should bc  delivered on Sunday, all thc sender has  to do is to remove the-dominical label  before   affixing .the   stamp  to  the  en-  A-elope'or.wrapper.   Tf the label is affixed to the letter it is not sent out with  ,'the Sunday delivery..-Tlie "addition" of  the Sunday label does not improve the  . appearance    of ��������������������������� the stamp, _ and it is  somewhat _dqubtful whether- its purpose  .is much appreciated by.the Belgian public, ^reports-having frequently reached  philatelists -that the- uscr of the label  .-was likely-ito'be abandoned.   It still remains, however,"on the new stamps of  Kincr Albert's reign.  O C_> -j - ���������������������������  When Your Eyes Need Care  Try Murine Eye Remedy.

J-Ic had bolioved that circumstances  wero pi <^tic and man invincible. Now,  iis lie bent forward in his chair, the  South American letter hanging in limp  lingers and the coal-oil lamp on the  table throwing its circle of light on the  foreign postmark and stamp of tho  envelope, he realized that the battle  was on. The forces of which he had  been contemptuous were to engage him  at onco, with no breathing space before the combat. Viewing it all in this  light, he felt the qualms of a general  who encounters an aggressive enemy  before his line is drawn and his battle-  front arranged.  He had so entirely persuaded himself  that his duty was clear and that he  must not speak to the girl of love that  now, when he had done so, his entire  plan of campaign must be revised, and  new problems must be considered.  When he had been swept away on the  tide that had carried him to an avowal,  it had been with the vague sense of  realization that, if he spoke at all, he  must tell the whole story.'. He had not  done so, and now came a new ciues-  ti : Had he the right to tell the story  until, in so far as* possible, he had  probed its mystery? Suppose his worst  fears proved themselves. The certainty  would be little harder to confess than  the presumption and the suspense.  Suppose, on the other hand, the fighting chance to which every man clings  should, after all, acquit him? Would it  not be needless cruelty to inflict on her  the fears that harried n his own  thoughts? Must he not try first to.  arm himself with a definite report for,  or against, himself?  After all, he argued weakly, or perhaps it "was the devil's' advocate that  whisper.ed th*. insidious counsel, there  might ��������������������������� be a mistake. The man of  Ribero's story might still be some one  else. He had never felt the instincts of  murder. Surely, he had not been the  embezzler, the liberirie," the assassin!  "But, in answer to that argument, his  colder logic contended there might  have been to his present Dr. Jekyll a  Mr. Hyde of the past. The letter he  held in his" hand of course' meant  nothing more u than that Ribero had  talked to some one. It might be mere-,  ly tlie fault of some idle.> gossip in a  Latin-American-cafe, when* the'-'claret  flowed too freely.7. The writer, this unknown "H.S.R.," had ��������������������������� probably.Q taken  Ribero's "testimony"^ at- its .face, .value.  Then, out ofjthe.page arose insistently  the one sentence" that did mean" something, more.'-the new link ina .chain of  definite conclusion. "Since you .beat-it  to God's country and ' went _ west���������������������������"  That was the'new evidence this anohy-.  mous witness had contributed..' He  had certainly gone-west! -'   -.  Assuredly, he must go to South  America, and prosecute himself. _To  clo this meant to .thrust himself into a  situation that held a hundred chances,  but there was'no one else who could  determine it for him. It was not merely  a matter of collecting and sifting evidence, lt was also a test of subjecting  his dormant memory to the stimulus of  place ".nd sights^, and sounds and  smells. * When he stood at the spot  where Carter had faced his executioners, surely, if he were Carter, he would  awaken to self-recognition. He would  slip away on some pretext, and try out  the issue and then,- when he spoke to  D ka, he could speak in definite  terms. And if he were the culprit?  The question came back as surely as  the pe -dulum swings to the bottom uf  the arc, and rested at the hideous conviction that hc must be the malefactor.  -Thenj=Saxon=rose=and=paced=the-=floor-f=;  his hand convulsively crushing the  left     into a crumpled wad.  Well, he would not come back! , If  that were his world, hc would not reenter it. I-Jc was willing to try himself���������������������������to be his own prosecutor, but, if  thc thing spelled a sentence of disgrace, he reserved the right to be also  his own executioner.  Then, thc devil's advocate again  whispered seductively into his perplexity:"    Suppose ho wont and tested thc environment, searching conscience and  memory���������������������������and suppose no monitor gave  him an answer. Would he not then  havo tho right to feel certain that his  memory, so stimulated and still inactive, was not only sleeping, but dead?  Would he not be justified in dismissing  the fear of a future awakening, and, as  Steele had suggested, in going forward  in the person of Robert A. Saxon,  abandoning the past as completely as  ho had perhaps abandoned previous incarnations?  So, i'or thc time, he stilled his fears,  and under his brush the canvases became moro Wonderful than they had  ever been. He had Duska at his side,  not only in the old intimacy, but in  the new and more wonderful intimacy  that had come of her acknowledged  love. He would finish the half-dozen  pictures needed to complete the consignment for the Eastern and European  exhibits, then he would start or. his  journey.  A week later Saxon took Duska to a  dance at the club-house on the top of  one of thc hills of the' ridge, and, after  she had tired of dancing, they had gone  to a point where the brow of the knob  ran out' to a jutting promontory of  rock. Jt was a cape in the dim sea of  night mist which hung upon, and  shrouded, the flats below. Beyond the  reaches of silver gray, the more distant hills rose in mystic shadow-  shapes of deep cobalt. There were  stars overhead, but they were pale in  the whiter light of the moon, and all the  world was painted, as the moon will  paint it, in silvers and blues.  Back of them was the softened waltz-  music that drifted from the club-house  and the bright patches of color where  the Chinese lanterns swung among_the  trees.  As they talked, the man felt wilh renewed force that the girl had given him  her love in the wonderful way of ne  who gives but once, and gives all without stint or reserve. It was as  though she had presented him unconditionally with the key to the archives  of her heart, and made him possessor  of the unspent wealth of all the Incas.  Suddenly he realized that his plan of  leaving her without explanation, on a  quest that might permit no return, was  meeting her gift with half-confidence  and deception. 'What he did with himself now, he did with her property.  I-Ie was not at liberty to act without  her full understanding and sympathy  in his undertakings. The plan was one  of infinite brutality.  I-Ie must tell her everything, and  then go. He struck at match for his  cigar, to give himself a moment of  arranging his words, and, as he stood  shielding the light against a faintly  stirring breeze, the miniature glare fell  on her delicately chiseled lips and nose,  and chin. Her expression made him  hesitate. She was very young, very  innocently childlike and very happy.  To tell her now would be like spoiling  a little girls' party. It must be" told  soon, but not while the dance music  was still in their ears and the waxy  smell of the dance candles still in their  nostrils.       ,  When he* left her at Horton House,  he did not at once return to the cabin.  He wanted the- open -skies for his  thoughts, and there was no hope of  sleep.  He retraced his steps from the road,  and wandered into the old-fashioned  garden: At last,, he halted . by the  seat- where he. had posed her for the  portrait. The moon was sinking, and  the shadows of * the garden wall and  trees and shrubs fell in long, fantastic  angles across the silvered earth. The  house , itself was dark except where  the panes of her window still glowed.  Standing between' the ��������������������������� tall stalks of  the hollyhocks, he held his .watch up.  to the moon. 'It was , half-past two  o'clock. - ,  _Then,-he looked up and started "with  surprise as he saw her standing in the  path before hini. /AX first he ,thought  that his imagination had .projected her  there.' Since", she had left him at the  stairs,,,, the-picture- she' had made-in  her "white gown -and - red", roses had  been vididly -permanent, though she  herself."had gone."  ,-  - - "   -    -  But, now her voice was real.'  "Do you prowl under , my windows  all night, kind sir?" she .laughed hap-"  pily. '-"I believe ,you must be almost  as much in love as I "am." '.'  The man reached forward, and seized  her hand.       l        -  "It's morning," he said. "What are  you doing here?".  ' (To be continued)  LIVES  OF  GREAT   MEN. -  According to Benoiston de Chateau-  ncuf the average life" of members of  the French Academy from 1635 to 1S3S  was 78 years and 10.months. Potiquet  reckoned that "between 1795-and 1S4S  the average for members of the Institute was 71 years and 4 months, while  for-members of the Academies of the  Fine Arts, Sciences, etc., "it was respectively 72 years and 2 months, 71  years and 4 months and, 70 years and  S months. We know of no-corresponding- statistics for members of other  learned societies, though to mention  ���������������������������onlv-the-most-recenL-cases _Sir_ Joseph  Hooker and Lord Lister had each passed* the ordinary limit of human life.  To arrive at any definite conclusions  we must discriminate between different  forms of intellectual energy. Poets  and artists are not in the same category as mathematicians, for instance,  or workers at scientific problems.  Then there are tho inventors, a class  apart, in whom the mero intellectual  excitement is increased by the hope  of gain.��������������������������� -Disappointment, -want- of- appreciation, lack of means, a squalid  home, a scolding wife���������������������������nil these things  have to be taken Into account a.s tending to shorten  life.  The longevity of statesmen has been  so remarkable that during the last  half century or so it has beon said with  truth that tho world Is governed by  old men. For the poet it has been  said that the fatal age is 37. This  seems to bc founded on nothing more  solid than the fact that Byron ancl  burns died at that age. Lcopardi died  at-30, Shelley at 20, and Keats at 25.  Before he was 40 Alfred de Musset  was according to Heine's bitter gibe, a  young man with a great future behind  him. Heine's own life after 47 was  spent in what he called his mattress  grave. Shakespeare died at 52, but  his creative life had ceased somo years  before.  Goethe, on the other hand, lived to  S2 in the full possession of his faculties. He was a man of powerful physique, and though he ate and drank  and did other things in anything but  moderation, and in fact was supposed  to be doomed to an early death in his  youth, he continued eating and drinking and high thinking 'almost to the  end.  Victor T-lugo died at S3, yet poets as  a class are not long lived. In them  generally intense exercise of the imagination alternates with periods of  inaction, and these havo too often been  passed in excesses which tend to undermine  the  constitution.  On the other hand, painters are long  lived, as pointed out by Hazlitt in a  well   known   essay.

The International  Bible Students state that they do not  find the Bible    to teach the doctrine  of a literal "Hell   Fire," or place of  fire and brimstone for the punishment  of the wicked,    and   ^hey state that  the general    clergy do not believe in  the doctrine of   "Hell Fire," but de-,  clare that for some reason the clergy  men have been   silent   on this p,oint,  and    the   Bible    students   call upon  them to speak    out.   They appeal to  | "every minister   in  Canada, to pub-  jlish in his local paper, over his own  ! signature,     a    statement      declaring  ' whether or not   be believes the Bible  to, teach the doctrine of a literal lake  of fire ancl    brimstone   as a place or  state    or    condition    for the eternal  punishment of the    wicked, and that  every editor   of a newspaper in Canada be requested to invite the ministers of his constituency to avail them  selves of his columns for their statements."  Slowly the world is getting better.  It is apparent that the Bible students and the ministry generally are  beginning to realize Lhat the laymen  have brushed aside, the fables and  myths of theology, and are no longer  depending upon their ministers to do  their spiritual thinking for them.

The membership fee was retained at  H per year, and the membership roll  opened for new names. The names of  Messrs.

A committee of five were elected to  shape up a plan of operation for the  ensuing year, to report at a meeting  to be called in two weeks. The following were named: Messrs. Moffet,  Stevens, Lawes, Packham and Walker  Since the meeting, Mr. Packham  has quietly solicited new members for  the Board, with the result that he  has increased the membership to more  than fifty, with more to come.

The government, is so im pressed by  the value of this kind of entertainment  tbat it lias organized similar companies in tho. provinces of J'osen and  Silesia, subsidies being provided by thc  provincial authorities and till the towns  of the. provinces boing visited in rotation, ln other districts the municipalities uve following the exnmple.  l-.fforts of the Duke oi* Sutherland  to develop gold mining on the bunks  of Suisgill burn, noiir Kildonan, Scotland, recalls that back in tho twelfth  century gold mining was carried on to  some extent in North Britain. It is  a matter of history that in 1(500 Queen  Elizabeth wns presented with a porringer made nf tho precious metal found  in   Scotland.  Bickle's Anti-Consumptive Syrup is  an unparalleled remedy for colds,  coughs, irifluony.fi and diseases of the  turoat and lungs. Tho fame of the medicine rests upon years of successful  use in eradicating these affections, and  in protecting mankind from thc fatal  ravages of consumption, nnd as a neglected cold loads to consumption, one  cannot bc too careful to fight it in its  early stages. Bickle's Syrup is the  waap0/1, use it.  When Captain: Matthew -Webb succeeded iu mastering the English Chan,  hei," in 1S7/5, it was thought that the  feat would never be undertaken again  ���������������������������so many were the dilliculties then  disclosed. ' But Thomas William Burgess, who swam across safely from  Dover the other day, not only experienced the same dilliculties which Webb  Imd encountered, but several difficulties  of his own as well. In the first place  Burgess is a Yorkshire blacksmith,  working industriously at his trade with  little or no time for wator activities  of any, kind, and in the second place  he is a man well over forty years of  age, These were two very grievous  handicaps, and handicaps which Burgess well overcame. Bis spurt for  fame lasted over twenty-three hours,  while that of Webb took twenty-one;  but Burgess was buffeted about by a  wild sea and ballling white-capped  waves, so that, instead of covering Lhe  official twenty-one miles,' he in reality  breasted some sixty odd or more. From  the very start the wind was bad.  Burgess, however, made no complaint  for a long time, but it was seen that  he was-having a bad time. Ou several  occasions he swallowed water. The  lumpy sea was very tiring to his arm  action, aud, most serious of all, his  eyes became affected. At the start,  of course, he had been greased with  lard, and this, combined wilh his great  powers of endurance, enabled him to  keep quite warm alL through the long  hours of the swim. In addition to  the grease he also wore as protection  against the sea and sun a pair of motor  goggles, and   a  rubber bathing-cap.-  The loppy water, however, penetrated  the goggles, especially the right glass,  which was under, water much more  than the left, and a small pool collected and remained iu the eye-piece, giving  Burgess great trouble. In the first  throe hours hc changed his goggles no  fewer than four times, but did not seem  lo get much benefit from the changes.  After sayImining for an hour and a  half Burgess asked for refreshment, and  Mr. Watson, the food specialist oo  hoard, prepared some chocolate���������������������������a beverage which was used throughout the  swiirn. While taking his drink Burgess efcattad with the party, aud told  them of* the rengk time he was haying.  ' Every one's spirits were rather low,  as the wind-was blowing-fifteen miles  an hour on more, and the- prospects  of anything like a good swim were very  remote. Burgess' eyes wore rather inflamed, and he stated that in all bis  experience he had never suffered so  much from the salt water.  Id spite of this fact it,was the opinion of everyone on board that thc  progress made up to that time was bettor than on any previous Channel swim.  Burgoss used his loft ovqrarm Btroke  continually and got a great deal of  power from his legs. His stroke was  twenty-four to the minute, und ho never  varied this for fifteen hours or more.  About three o'clock a large tramp  steamer, tho F. Stobart, hove in sight,  steaming up Channel. Thc entire party  stood up and signaled her to go behind  the swimmer, and her captain elowed  down and altered his course. When  informed who was in the water he and  his crew shouted a message of good  wishes.  Thc cud of the Hood tide on which  the swim was started took Burgess  three miles north of the South Sands  Bead  Lightship.      In   three   hours  he  -was- six- mi les -off-theJand Thc_ lap.  was still troubling him. Hc was slightly sick three times, and after about  three hours' swimming ho had a serious  talk with the pilot regarding the acV  visability of remaining in the water.  "A couple more turns of sickness  will finish me,'' he said.  Burgess came down Chanuol Jit a  great pace, and the Calais boat, due at  Dover at five o'clock, passed many  miles eastward of liim. His westward  drift took him "as far ae "the" Shake"  speare Colliery, situated half-day between   Folkstone   aud   Dover.  The weather was thou improving  rapidly. Thc swimmer was in better  spirits after six hours than after two,  and, as the pilot gruffly yelled, "Everything in tho garden is lovely."  Jn seven hours it was a position that  any Chamicl swimmer would have eu-  vied. Bnrge.-s was >atisficd, but not  elated.  lie was fast settling down to the  real business of the swim, and thoso  on board hoard little except tho swish-  swish of his mighty kick and occasionally a jest about, any unfortunate  member of the. party who looked a little  ������������������ickly.  At eleven o'clock Burgess started his  night swim in fine spirit:*, and finely  placed.  The next Hood tide took him one of i  the most extraordinary jaunts if has  cv.r been tho fortune of a Channel  swimmer to go. it set him right back  toward England and he had to cross the  di ended Kidgo Bank, where ho noticed  the chill of the shallow water. Be  asked for soundings to bo taken and  when informed that thore woro twenty-  one fathoms he immediately assured his  pilot that he was decidedly nearer England than France.  One of the party, "Jack" Weidman,  dived in and accompanied Burgess from  nine o'clock until twelve-thirty, and his  presence was much appreciated by Burgess,, who, we are told, "ate, drank,  and swam the night away."  At dawn, about ���������������������������i-.'.lO o'clock, the !ir,st  bearings of the day were taken. Grisnez bore southwest by south and Calais  eastsoutheust; the nearest land. Sangatte, was only three miles distant. The  fog hung about all the morning and the  coast was not visible for a long t'-ine.  About this time, after eighteen hours'  swimming, "Burgess grew a little w������������������a.k.  lie Btated he was all right physically,  but felt "light-headed." He said ho  could see mirages, and summed the  whole situation up by saying hc had a  ���������������������������'bad lit of thc blues and if they boys  didn't sing to him he should chuck it  shortly."  "-"���������������������������he party immediately began to sing.  Mr. Watson led off* with the "Miserere" from "11 Trovatore."  Burgess asked for the "Marseillaise," and the entire party sang it  to him for twenty minutes or so without stopping.  An attack of cramps near the heart  bothered Burgess until a few miles off  Grisnez.  ' High tide at Grisnez was at 0:40  o'clock and tho slack wator was felt  at 7HO. Thinking he was still many  miles off, Burgess asked for champagne.  When informed he was only a mile and  a half off the shore he brightened up  very much, and went away' again with  the word, ".No champagne then."  'Mr. Watson gave him a lozenge and  some essence of peppermint., which  seemed-to ease him in his pain, and he  went on again steadily.  Captain Fearson sang out: "IT you  ean stick it a little longer, 'Bill,-' you  won't, be troubled with this job again."  To whieh Burgess answered: "Oh,  we'll settle it now."  When Weidman went in, at 6:30  o'clock, Burgess, noticing he was using  a poor arm stroke, gave him a short  lesson in swimming.  About eight o'clonk he had another  attack of stomach cramp, whieh prevented bis swimming his best. The  situation was then critical. A decision to alter thc course half a point  east or west meant success or failure.  .Burgess summed up the situation  swiftly. He told his pilot that rather  than run .the risk of being swept off  Bhort by the.tide, as, he was on a previous swim, be would makea1 dash for  the point of Grisnez. The course was  at once altered, and tbe wisdom of  Burgess' decision was soon apparent;  he was gaining on the land more rapidly. ��������������������������� His-.illuess,- however,- badly handicapped him.  At 8:30 o'clock the point of the ������������������ipe  was straight ahead, and Burgess had  missed-it by-a little under'a quarter  of a mile! By many ou board this was  regarded ns the end of his chance. Burgees said he was in a bad way, but if  necessary he would make a dash for  the shore. His great pluck was the  only thing that kept him going. The  "Marseillaise" was again trolled forth  from the boat and as Burgess slowly  fought his way inch by inch into the  bay east of Grisnez the scene was most  dramatic.  It was a race with the tide, and Burgess won, one .raight say, by inches.  He got inside the bay and into slack  wator, -ind another quarter of au hour's  painful work brought, his great, task to  a close.  The excitement on tho boat was' intense. The whole of the party took off  'tlrei")'^hWs=ffTfd=^oek"'ingsJ=ra''n'cl=1eagerly"  awaited tho word from the skippeT that  thc water was shallow enough to walk  in. Burgess sprinted'the last two hundred yards on his left overarm, thc  stroke that had given him thc victory  over the Channel, exactly at 0:50  o'clock.  Then Burgess walked n little weakly,  but. with n firm ."top to shore, and selected his mother out of all the crowd���������������������������  eager-to take him inher-arms.--- ---  -  Ctcktj- ���������������������������tap* vmmihm, mmrma twlda.  i tivtmmi mmA Urnim*     a  a  %     M  TKE riEST MAN TO SCALE THE  MATTEEHOEN  After facing a hundred deaths on  mountain peaks in every part of the  globe, it may seem strange that Edward Whymper, thc world-renowned  mountaWi-eliriher, who died a few* days  ago in the shadow of his loved Mont  Blanc, met death iu a perfectly normal,  every-day fashion in his bed. But this  has been really the fate of nearly ull  great; explorers���������������������������Captain Cook and Sir  John Franklin alone standing out ns  two notable exceptions. And both of  these latter were comparatively young  men.  Whymper was well advanced in his  seventy-second year, and had beeu ill.  He spoke in Geneva a few days ago as  n man, with a premonition of death.  He died at Chamouni among thc tall  mountains and glaciers he loved so well.  When Whymper was twenty-five years  of age, in I860, he climbed the Matter-  horn after seven fruitless attempts.  Thc peak had been supposed unscalable.  On thc way down, Lord Hadow's foot  slipped, an'd four of tho members of  the party when tho rope broke fell  thousands of feet to their destruction.  The tragedy, and ' Whymper'b graphic  account of it iu "Scrambles Among the  Alps," made the first ascent of the  Matterhom the most famous mountain  conquest on record, Though in scientific attainments Whymper was not the  equal of several other noted "mountain-  climbing investigators," owing to his  grace of literary style and mastership  of the art, of vivid description ho had  no superior iu the matter of imparting  to the general reader his knowledge  and the results of his observations.  Whymper was, moreover, an artist of  considerable talent.  A singular fact illustrative of, "the  irony of fate-and<the.Barcasm of destiny," is that although on the occasion  of ���������������������������'his great triumph he narrowly escaped falling 4,000 feet down the sheer  slopes of the mountain, some yearB later  he fell four feet from a lecture platform  and suffered a broken leg. Previous to  this accident,' moreover, he had come  out unseratched from numerous perilous  situations, into which his enthusiasm  for climbing and an almost reckless  spirit of adventure had led him.  Whympcr's explorations, expeditions,  and peak scalings were not confined to  the Alps, but extended to Mexico, South  America, Greenland, and other countries. Many of his ventures were undertaken alone, since, being comparatively without money, he could not pay  guides and others to accompany hiuj.  The first ascent to a greater- height  than 20,000 feet was placed to tbe credit of Mr. Whymper when hc reached  the top of Chimbora-zo in Ecuador,  whieh had baffled all other travellers.  He made valuable observations ou thc  physical effect of high altitudes, and  tor years occupied himself with barometric researches. He came to America a few years ago, -and':pointed out  that there are "Tift.een Switzerlands  rolled into oue" in the Canadian .Rockies. Though he was then at an age  when ��������������������������� most men prefer.'the slippered  ease of thc fireside, he made several  ascents of virgin snow-clad crests in  that region.  In his seventy-one years of active  life  as  scientist,  artist,  and - explorer,  low in his footsteps Btarward, or, al  least,"to lift, tlreir eyes to the everlasting hills .ameng which he lived and  died.      ' '������������������������������������������������������-  Whymper was the evangel    of  1 the  freedom of the mountaineer." By  practice he illustrated thc proeept of  his books and pictures, and his depiction of the pleasures and rewards of  mountaineering have led  many fo foi-  Shi/oh* Cun  quickly stops coutfhft. cores coids. hcalr-  the throat and lungs   ��������������������������� -      ���������������������������       25 cents  HIGH LIVING IN* JAPAN  Every 'item' of every-day' 15fo is as.  costly in Japan as :in Europe or America, says a Japanese paper.

RICHARD McCOMB,  General Manager,  Aldergrove, B.C  THE FOOT  OF DEATH  Fifty-six per cent of the pulpwood cut in Canada during the  year 1911 was exported to the  United States. This is the fact  shown by statistics collected by  the Forestry Branch of the Department of the Interior.  The total quantity of pulpwood  cut in Canada during 1911 was  1,520,227 cords. The quantity'ex-  ported amounted to 847,939 cords,  while the remaining forty-four  per cent (672,288 cords) was  manufactured in Canada.  The value of this pulpwood was  $5,340,592 an average of $6.29  per cord. Had the wood been  retained in Canada and manufactured here, it- is estimated  that the value would have been  increased" to aboutf $15,000,000.  Had Canada manufactured into  wood-pulp all the pulpwood she  produced, she could have had  enough to supply a hundred and  twenty-two mills of the average  size of those operating in Canada,  instead of the fifty-four she now  has. - Quebec could have supplied  sixty per cent, more mills than  she is now doing and New Brunswick could have doubled the number of lier mills.  Ever   since   the Province of  Quebec   forbade the. export of  pulpwood cut from crown lands,  considerable   interest has been  taken in the question as to how  the price of pulpwood would be  affected.   A leading paper trade  periodical  estimated   that   the  price of pulpwood had advanced  ,one dollar per cord.. _This is corroborated by the bulletin on pulpwood lately compiled by the Forestry Branch of the Department  of the Interior!    According/to  this bulletin, the average price of  pulpwood in Quebec'prvoince during 1911 was higher by ''ninety-  seven, cents than 7 during. 1910.  In Ontaricfthe price actually fell  twenty cents pe'r..cord,;whiler'in  Nova Scotia and^New Brunswick  increases   of--.twenty-nine, and  twenty-two ' "cents ,-;-'respectively  are announced. '  .       7 '"  *.,'  . A .question that is just beginning to come into/notice. in - the  Dominion is   the -utilization-of  saw-mill waste as material for  pulpmaking.   A very small quantity of such waste is so. utilized'  by three-firms which own both  saw-mills and pulp-mills;   '  , '~; -  states that, except for fire, the  country would be covered with  timber two or three feet in diameter."  N THE NECHACO VALLEY.  "While no detailed estimates  have been made, I believe there  are easily twenty-five billion feet  of spruce, eottonwood, cedar, fir,  birch and balsam, besides a vast  amount of, cord-wood of poplar,  which will be available for lumber, paper pulp, and wood using  industries in the watershed of the  Fraser River above .the mouth of  the Nechaco, which empties into  the Fraser at Fort George," said  the Hon. Wm. Ross after a visit  to the  northern  country.    "As  very, much  of ��������������������������� the   land   on  which this timber stands can be  used for agriculture  after  the  timber is removed, every effort  should be made to promote ' the  development of   the industries  which will use  this timber.   To  this end it is my intention  to'  have a special investigation made  by experts into the uses to which  this timber can be put, particularly the spruce, birch,   eottonwood  and-poplar, and the markets in  which these products can be sold.  It is certain "that if paper or pulp  saw,   furniture  or  other  mills  manufacturing wood into -marketable products; can be/located  along '��������������������������� the line of  the < Grand  Trunk Pacific in this valley the  settlers will be greatly helped,  since the" sale of the timber from  their lots would provide means to  clear the land, and "a, vast saving  would be made in timber which  would otherwisebe burned.'

The timber of the Hudson Bay  region (the southern part of the  old district of Keewatin)" is a  topic that has lately become of  considerable 'interest. Interesting observations with regard to  it are found in the 1911 report of  the Director of Forestry, .pub*:  lished as part of the annual report of the Department of the Interior for 1911. These are in  continuation of the report1 on the  timber along the proposed line of  the Hudson Bay Railway, published as Bulletin No. 17 of the  Forestry Branch.  Mr. J. T. Blackford, an experienced woodsman, -acquainted  with conditions in the north, reports on the conditions of the  forest around Oxford House, his  explorations covering some 5400  square miles of country. Of this  only about 16oo square miles bears  merchantable timber; on the remaining 3800 miles the timber  has been burned. There is  abundant evidence that the whole  country was originally forested  with spruce, tamarack, poplar, jack pine, balsam, fir, and  birch, and on islands which have  by their position been protected  from fire are dense stands of trees  two to three feet in diameter.  The areas, after the first burning, have usually been covered  with dense growth of trees, but  the debris left after the first almost invites a second fire. In  many places fire has swept the  country many times, impoverishing the soil, destroying all seed-  trees, and with them all hope of  a second forest. "During the  summer,' the report states, ' 'Mr.  Blackford found no commercial  timber of any quantity,  but he  Press agents of-Hell have' again  'succeeded in-getting "space in-iKe  papers.

Poor  Dante never got his royalty for  the moving picture privilege, but  that is beside the point. He  dropped down into Hell and took  a look around. The prospect  was not very alluring but he  made a fairly minute examination  of the place before returning to  earth. Strange to say, he did not  observe the Hobs, the Mill-Tail  nor the Little Wheel.���������������������������Fernie  Free Press.  rv<"  ���������������������������yfrz\  4.T-1 Vrl  *������������������S7*I  ... -j������������������  7,  ������������������-V ���������������������������*** '!���������������������������  ,;V-"<C   ,*s*  SYNOPSIS OF COAL MINING REGULATIONS  .���������������������������*/.- -/* y~ 'Z/yr:;,'���������������������������;-.>/��������������������������� -zy'//&������������������;{  : Coal-mining^rights. of .the "Dominion,  in.

The  care of the pregnant marc has a very  marked influence upon thc colt in  foetal life, and the coifs embryonic  existence must exert a certain amount  of influence upon its development during thc early stages of its actual life.  ]t is generally conceded that greater  success- altends -the--raising of- colls  from mares which have not been  pampered, but have been 'constantly  exercised, preferably at light work. His  safe, under careful manfigement, to  work the average farm mare even up  to the day of foaling*. "Mares must be  liberally fed, but not overfed, especially on grain. Thore is, however,  little clanger of thom becoming too fat  if kept af work.  Willi the marc treated in this way,  foaling*  time  presents  fewer  troubles.  Having*  been   safely  delivered   of  her  foal, the marc should  be given absolute  rest   for   from   ten   days- to   two  weeks, when she can be again gradually started al light  work.   When the  mare is first put to work", lhe eoli may  be allowed  to run with  her, provided  there is no crop in  the way thai may  be injured, which is generally thc case  in early spring.   If Kept in thc stable,  and   only   allowed   nourishment  when  thc   marc   comes   in   al   mid-day   and  again   at  night,' the   fasts   arc   very  often   of   too   long   duration    for   thc  best, interests of thc colt's delicate digestive  system,  which,   under  natural  conditions  receives  a  fresh  supply  of  thc dam's milk in small quantities at  very     frequent     intervals.      Running  with   thc   dam   is  helpful,   because   it  allows  the  colt   to  nurse   frequently,  which aids it in getting a good start,  and keeps the marc's udder in better  condition  than  it would otherwise he'.  As the colt gets older, it can be kept  in   tho   stall   for  gradually  increasing  lengths of time, until, in a short time,  the mare  can  be  worked  a full  half  d y   Avithout   returning   to   the   colt.  Care must, however, be taken that the  and shoura"n5c^tecl_li"berally: Clovci  hay should form a large portion of the  roughage fed until good grass is  plentiful, when this should be lhe  major portion of the ration. There is  nothing like grass for milk production. Of course, colts do better where  thc mare is not called upon to work-  after foaling, bul most farm marcs  must earn thoir keep. It is important  that the foal be kept growing* continuously,- and- aiiylhing--which-tonds.-  towards this should  be encouraged.

It is expected, however, lhat the energy so  long pent up will carry all before it  when the time comes and everybody  ' there looks for a season of tremendous  development this summer. The most  interesting phase of the situation, the  progress of the Grand Trunk Pacific  construction in the vicinity, of Tete  Jaune Cache, is the' prime topic of discussion in Fort George. The facts of  Ihis construction are as follows:  The end of steel is Mile 2S,  Tete  Jaune  Cache  is   Mile  53,  * There is yet some heavy rock  to be finished at Mile 47, B. C.  ever, this will be completed by June 1  and steel will be laid to Tete Jaune  Cache by-July 1. The necessary delay  in getting steel into the Cache will not  interfere with transportation down the  river, as six hundred teams are  freighting from Mile 2S, and the firm  of Foley, Welch . & Stewart, Grand  Trunk" Pacific contractors, has supplies at the Cache sufficient to keep  its fleet of vessels on the Upper Fraser  running for sixty days with full cargoes.  River transportation facilities will be  pressed to the limit this summer.'  Enormous quantities of supplies and  equipment, including thirty donkey  engines, and twelve steam shovels,  must- be delivered lo construction  -camps during ��������������������������� open navigation, and,  furthermore, positive orders havo been  issued tbat supplies,sufficient to*maintain a construction force of 1,000 men  throughout the winter, must be delivered in Fort George at the earliest  possible date. Twenty scows are now  building,"and-if they prove the success  that is^expecled, others will be built as  fast as the" mills can supply the-lumber. These scows will be used to carry  goods  from  Tele   Jaune  Cache  down  ' the Fraser to. Fort, George. The river  is now open and free of ice, bul owing  ��������������������������� to low water, navigation with the large  - -boats .will  not be possible  before the  middle.of, May.    - ,     -__  '���������������������������V.  The"Grandl'-Trunk Pacific "will, it is  ���������������������������expected, open, the line'to Fitzhugh by  midsummer, and passengers will have  ��������������������������� little difficulty "in "getting through lo  the Cache and on lo Fort George. It  will,   however, 'be  impossible  for  "Ed-  "' monlon-lo make'any freight shipments  to Fort George before the line is open  to -the Fraser- river. The Edmonton  shipper  cannot  freight "supplies  from  Z, Fitzhugh ancl compete with Vancouver,  and, in addition to this, Foley, "Welch  '& Stewart will not accept other freight  than their own on their boats. However, , shipments can be' made to Tete  Jaune Cache next winter and freighted  ��������������������������� on the ice lo Fort George, thus competing very favorably with Vancouver.  It-is believed thai the Foley, Welch &  Stewart boats will carry passengers  to Fort George throughout tho season.  It is understood that Fort George  will, this summer, become a distributing centre and permanent location of  Foley, Welch & Stewart and subcontractors. Among the railway men who  have already signified their intention  of moving Fort George to establish  headquarters arc" A. E. Griffin, who has  .the   contract   for   construction   from  =l?orl^Gcorge=Ho=Burns"=]ake=aml-"iwi]l  start this fall, building Irom Fort  George west; and Mr. Fetters, who has  full charge.of all construction and engineering work on this division. Vigorous construction work will bo under  way east, west and south of Fort  George as quickly as supplies and  equipment  can  be  assembled  there.  Thero are a dozen contracting firms  now engaged in business there, and all  _of_lhcm_slalc_that_lhcir hands.aro full  with construction work,  business, new firms are  everything points  to  a  markable activity.  The first steamer lo reach Fori  George this season was the British  Columbia Express Company's vessel  thc "J3. X.," which left Soda Creek on  Sunday, April 2S, anl reached Fort  George Tuesday morning, April 30.  She brought a full cargo and a full  complement of passengers. The British Columbia Express Company has  this year anothor now steamer, the "B.  C. Express," which will ply from Tete  Jaune Cache to Fort George, and westward up ithe Nechaco river.  For general amusement in the home,  select two well matched kittens and set  tlicin , to playing���������������������������or they will do it  without urging. The saucy "faces"  thoy make, with ears turned back, as  they wait to close in with each other,  are very amusing. It seems strange  that ,they can keep such serious faces  themselves while carrying* on such  funny performances. But wc must remember that all their quick attacks and  stealthy actions while tit play are training them for more serious business in  later life.  .Dogs got a great deal of exercise in  their play, but they arc not so sly nor  so graceful as members of the cat family. My dog has "killed*" many a rag  while playing at rat catching*. Bogs  seem to obtain great enjoyment from  their play. Their capers with a stick  thrown for them to bring back from the  land or the water have amused many  a sniall master. Little pigs play with  as much vigor and dexterity as anj-- animals that 1 have ever seen; but later in  life this capacity entirely disappears.  While some young animals-' enjoy  playing with one another tliere are  others which seem to prefer to- play  alone. Rabbits appear to belong to this  latter class. Many times J have seen  young rabbits amuse themselves by suddenly starting off from where they were  nibbling grass, and going  ning" for ten or more feet  sharp turn, come back with a leap in  the air and snap about again for another run. Suddenly they will stop and  listen, then shoot off again and turn  themselves in the air with a kick of the  hind feet as they skim over the ground.  Chickens perform most absurdly in  thc barnyard. Rooks arc said to go  through an elaborate performance oi'  "killing''" a biscuit before eating it.  Tame sea gulls play a game with sticks  and stones, throwing them into thc air  and catching them in their beaks its  they would fish. In the zoo monkeys  are the master players, but they have  their rivals in the tussling bears, the  dancing ostriches, the spouting and diving sea lions.

One lamb mounted a pile of straw  and rubbish, and immediately his comrades "stormed" his castle, and tried to  push him from his stronghold. The one  that succeeded had a chance to defend  the position as the former one had done,  and the performance was kept up until  all wero tired out. A steeplechase was  another exciting amusement. In this  they jumped over a row of old feed  boxes as they ran back and forth across  thc barnyard. >  STRANGE RECOVERY OF WATCH  Nine years ago Mrs. Tracy Drake of  Chicago, lost a tiny diamond studded  watch, valued at $1,100, at Pasadena-,  California, while attending a large open  air meeting. Every effort was made to  recover it, and thc conclusion was finally reached that it had been taken by a  pickpocket. Recently, after a heavy  shower, Mrs. B. I. ' Jacobs, walking  through the' lot where thc crowd had  assembled, found thc timepiece.  lt was little damaged, having evidently been trampled in the soft dust  and eventually buried, to bc uncovered  by the storm. The police records disclosed its ownership and the treasured  keepsake is already on its way cast by  express. It was a honeymoon prcsenr  from Drake,-bought while hc and his  bride were abroad.  , THE FOX DEVIL OF JAPAN  The fox holds a place   in    Japanese  legend much worse than that given hini  in thc folklore of Europe, unenviable as  that is.    His attributes go far beyond  A  QUAINT  DUTCH  CUSTOM  Of the many quaiu^ and curious customs, traditions Uiid^jn-ivilcges prevailing in Holland, none is moro extraordinary than a certain privilege that has  been enjoyed by thc boys of Amsterdam  for nearly throe hundred years.  At a fixed time each summer these  boys gather by the hundreds in the  great square called the Dam, situated in  the centre of the city. Each boy has  a drum slung over his shoulder.  Facing this square is the Stock Exchange, ancl on the occasion in question,  just as soon as thc day's business is  over, as many of the boys as can crowd  into the building. They proceed to tlie  floor of thc exchange, where, pursuant  to this odd custom, they are permitted  to march about, singing ancl beating  upon their drums.  The origin of this custom, it is said, is  as follows:  One afternoon in thc year 1G22 a  crowd of boys playing in thc Dam lost  a ball in the canal that in those days  skirted one side of the square. One  of thc lads, while climbing in among tho  piles on wliich the building stood, found  instead of his ball a boat moored in  a dark corner and loaded with boxes  of gunpowder. This showed clearly  enough what was afterward ascertained  with certainty, tho intention of tho  Spanish conspirators to blow up the  Stock Exchange while it was crowded,  as it was every day, with the leading  citizens of the city.  The boy who stumbled upon thc gun-  FLOWERS  OF ANCIENT  EGYPT  Ju a suburb of Cairo stands the National Museum of Egyptian Antiquities  founded fifty years ago by a Frenchman known as Mariettc Bey. One department is devoted fo an'interesting  collection of specimens of plants which  have, been found in the sepulchral monuments of that country.  It is remarkable that, although the  botanical collection is largo and con-  lains many varietics^evory plant~is~slill  to bc found growing in the valleys of  the Nile. Moreover, the closest examination fails to reveal thc slightest difference between the plants that flourished fifty centuries ago and those wliich  the traveller sees today on thc banks  of the river.  Flowers such as the boy Moses or the  children of Joseph picked still bloom  unchanged. There arc to bc seen hero  blue sprays of larkspur which loving  hands laid upon the bodies of those who  died a thousand years before Abraham  and Sarah went into Egypt.  In thc tombs of later date have been  found, together with apparently simple  ornamental flowers, such as hollyhocks  and chrysanthemums, thc various fruits  vegetables and grains for which the  land has over been renowned, such as  figs, dates, olives, grapes, pomegranates,  onions, barley unci wheat. Around the  necks and upon thc breasts of those who  rlicd at the time when Solomon reigned  jn Jerusalem, about 1000 B, C, were  found garlands of celery, which does  not appear to have been used at that  time as a vegetable by the Egyptians.  All these plants, when fhey were prepared for thc funeral ceremonies, were  .subjected to great heat, by which their  form and color were preserved, bul, their  germinating power was destroyed.  Jlcnce all thc stories whieh have been  told of wheat having been raised from  grains that have lain in thc wrappings  of mummies for fifty centuries are untrue. Unscrupulous natives have sold  credulous travellers wheat in which  modern grains have been mixed with  the ancient, but only the modern grains  can germinate.  ��������������������������� BOTTLE FLOATS AROUND THE 7 ���������������������������-.  - 7 ���������������������������*���������������������������- -        '.

SECRET OF UNBREAKABLE GLASS  Unbreakable glass, for which thore  might bc a demand just now, was invented nearly two thousand years ago",  according to Petronius and Dion Cassius, though Pliny casts a doubt on tho  story. An artist appeared before Tiberius with a cup of glass which hc dashed  violently on the ground. Tt was neither  broken nor cracked, but merely dent  ed, like a piece of metal. Then the mau  produced a mallet and hammered the  cup back info its proper shape.  Tiberius, however, asked whether  anybody else know thc secret and whon  the artist proudly answered "]STo," had  him instantly beheaded. The emperor  feared that such glass would terribly  depreciate the value of the precious  metal.  Charles XII'. of Sweden, invented the  first portable military tireless cooker.  He had a knapsack lined with hay to  strap to a soldier's back. When starting  on a march a big chicken was split open  and tho inside dressed clean and then  filled with butter. In the chicken was?  placed a small cannon ball of hot iron.  The hot cooking chicken was then  placed in thc hay knapsack. When the  camp was pitched at evening thc meat  was deliiTously cooked and all soaking  with butter. THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, July 25, 1912  Want Ads.

British Columbia alone buys 60,.-  000 head of live sheep from  Washington every year, and the  amount that comes from Australia in cold storage is large. It  is net difficult to grow meat in  this part of the world. There is  plenty of land for the purpose  and there are plenty of people on  the land who could raise stock,  and do it profitably. There is  more demand for local grown  mutton than beef, but in both  cases the demand is greater than  the supply. It is considered that  for six months of the year British Columbia can keep the local  markets going in beef, but for  the other six months the supply  is obtained from Alberta. The  markets are not nearly so well  supplied with mutton and yet  sheep can be profitably reared  and do not cause as much : work  as the growing of grain.  AN ELECTION PREDICTION.  The Ottawa Free Press, which  is usually well informed on the  political outlook, expresses itself  as convinced that both parties  are lining up for a general election in the fall of 1913. The  ground of this surmise is that-  Mr. Borden will pass a redistribution bill and go to the country  on his naval policy. -  To keep flies oft* your bald spot, feed  them sugar from the hand.  DEATH OF R. H. AGUR.  The news of the sudden death  of R. H. Agur, which spread  rapidly through the community  Tuesday morning, came as a great  shock, says the Summerland Review. But few were aware that  he was ailing, and still fewer that  he had returned home from an  extended business trip. Though  not in the best of health for some  time, no serious result from his  ailment was anticipated.  Mr. Agur was one of Summer-  land's most prominent citizens,  and one who was greatly interested in all enterprises looking to  the advancement of the valley.-  He was president of the B. C.  Fruit Unipn and a man whose  loss will l")e deeply-felt.  CANADIANS AT BISLEY.  Commenting on the general  work of the Canadian team at  Bisley camp this year the commander, Lieut.-Col.

Good clothes  take up no more room than inferior kinds;  it takes less time to sell high-quality  stuff���������������������������it looks veil and. sells itself; on  high-class goods our percentage of  profit is less than it vould have to be on  lov-class stuff.  It is economy to buy our upright quality  merchandise.
