"tf 1 take yuu bade, you will go unarmed, under f-oiistiint supervision,"  stipiilaU'd Rodman.

Are  tory?"  "Absolutely:*  ness burst  from "nis lips  than he had  intended.  "Then, come with me to the captain."  Suddenly, Hodman wheeled, and looked  at the other man with a strange expression. "Do you know why I'm doing this? It's a fool reason, but 1  want to prove to you that I'm not the  sort that would be apt to turn an ally  over to his executioneers. That's why."  Five minutes later, the two stood in  the captain's cabin, and Saxon noted  that the officer treated Rodman with a  manner of marked deference.  "Is Cart-wright's steam yacht still at  Mollera?" demanded the soldier of for-   let clustered vines,  fragrance  to  adobe    walls,    and    the  tune, incisively.  "It's held there for emergencies," replied the officer.  "It's our one chance!    Mr. Saxon and  myself  must  get  to   Puerto   Frio   at  once.    When   do   we  strike   Mollera?"  Rodman consulted his watch.  "In an hour." '  "Have tis put off there. Send a  wireless to the yacht to have steam  up, and arrange for clearance. ' Put  on all' steam ahead for Mollera."  It was something, reflected Saxon, to  have such toys to play with as this  thin ally of his could, for the moment  at least, command.  "Now, I fully realize," said Rodman,  as they left the captain's cabin together, "that I'm embarking on the  silliest enterprise of a singularly silly  career. But I'm no quitter. Cart-  wright," he explained, "is one of the  owners of the line. He's letting his  yacht be used for a few. things where  '   it comes in handy."  There was time to discuss details on  the way down the coast" in the Phyllis.  The yacht had outwardly all the idle  ease of a craft designed merely for  luxurious loafing over smooth seas,  but Cartwright had built it with one or  two other requisite qualities in mind;  - Tlie Phyllis could show heels, if ever  matters came to a chase, to anything  less swift than "a torpedo-boat de-  .'stroyer. Her mastheads were strung  with the parallel wires that gave her  voice in the Marconi tongue, and' Saxon had no sooner stepped over the side  than he realized that the crew recognized in Mr. Rodman a person to be  implicitly obeyed.  If  Rodman   had  seemed   to  be  won  over   with   remarkable   suddenness   to  Saxon's  request that  he  undertake  a  dangerous rescue, it was now evident  to the painter that the appearance had  been in part deceiving.    Here, he was  moro at Rodman's mercy than he had  been   on   the  steamer.      If  Rodman's  word  had indeed been as he boasted,  that of an admiral on the City of Rio,  it was, on  the Phyllis, that of an admiral on his own flagship.   BV a thousand  little,  artful  snares  thrown  into  their  discussions of ways and- means,  Rodman   sought' to   betray   the   other  into any utterance or action that might  show underlying treachery, and, before  the yacht had eaten up the route back  to the strip  of coast where the fron-  Tie  , on deck, garbed in riding-clothes that  ] almost fitted him, though they belong-  i ed to Cartwright or some of the guests  i wlio had formerly been pleasuring on  j the yacht.  i As their motor-boat was making its  I way shoreward over peacefully glinting  ! water, the painter ran his hand inlo  ; his coat-pocket for a handkerchief. He  | found lhat he had failed to provide  , himself. The other pockets were  ' equally empty, save for what money  had been loose in his trousers-pocket  when he changed, and the old key he  always carried there. These things he  had unconsciously transferred by mere  force of habit. Everything else he had  left behind. He felt a mild sense of  annoyance. He had wanted, on meeting her, to hand Duska the letter he  had written on the night that their  ships passed, but haste was the watchword, and one could not turn back for  such   triiles  as  pocket  furnishings.  Rodman proved the best of guides.  He knew a .liveryman from whom  Argentine ponies could be obtained,  and led the way at a brisk canter out  the smooth road toward the capital.  For a time, the men rode in silence  between the haciendas,  between  scar-  clinging with heavy  Tier stretched its invisible line, ne naci  corroborated his belief that the artist  was telling the truth. Had he not been  convinced, Rodman had only to speak,  and every man from the skipper to the  Japanese cabin boy would have been  obedient to his orders.  "We- will not try to get to Puerto  Frio harbor," explained Rodman, "lt  would hardly be safe. We shall steam  past   the  city,   and   anchor   at   Bella-  -vista,-iivo-miles- beyond. ���������������������������J.eliavisUi-is  a seaside resort, and there a boat like  this will attract  less  attention.    Also,  the  consulate  is  better suited  to  needs as to thc formalities of entering;  and leaving port.    Tiiero, we will take j  horses and ride to town.    I'll read the'Hodman  fringed spears of palms along the cactus-lined  roadsides.  Hitherto, the' man's painting sense  had lain dormant. Now, despite his  anxiety and the nervous prodding of  his heels into, the Hanks of his vicious  little mount, he felt that he was going  toward Duska, and with the realization  came satisfaction. For a time, his eyes  ceased to be those of the man hurled  into new surroundings and circumstances, and became again those of Frederick Marston's first disciple.  They rode before long into the country that borders the town. Rodman's  eyes were fixed with a fascinated gaze  on the quiet summit of San Francisco.  Pie had himself no definite knowledge  when the craters might open, and as  yet he had seen no sign of war. The  initial note must of course come drifting witlr the first wisp of smoke and  the first detonation from the mouths of  those guns.  _ At the outskirts of the town, they  turned a sharp angle hidden behind  high monastery walls,-and found themselves-confronted by a squad of native  soldiery with fixed bayonets.   * _    .  With an" exclamation of surprise,  Rodman- drew his pony back- on* its  flank's.-- For a moment, he leaned in  his saddle, scrutinizing the "men who  had halted him. There was, of course,  no distinction.of uniforms, but he reasoned that no government troops would  be guarding that road, because, as' far  as the government knew, there was* no  war. He leaned over and whispered:  "Vegas y Libertad."  The sergeant in command saluted  with'a grave smile, and drew his men  aside, as the two horsemen rode on.  "Looks like it's getting close," commented Rodman shortly. "We'd better  hurry."  Where the old market-place stands  at the junction of the -Calle Bolivar  with a lesser street, Rodman again  drew down his pony, and his cheeks  paled to the temples. From the centre  of the city came the sudden staccato  rattle of musketry. The plotter threw  his eyes up to the top of San Francisco,  visible above the roofs, but the summit  of San Francisco stiil slept the sleep  of quiet centuries. Then, again, came  the clatter from the centre of the" town,  and again the sharp rattle of rifle fire  ripped the air.   There was heavy fight-  -i .. .-���������������������������- ..*\~~.r\r,.\\n-..r.    r\,-\~o Vt/-n fl     TITo���������������������������5Uni->nivi-c-v.i-u--ij*nMP.   "Good God!" breathed the thin man.  "What does it mean?"  The two ponies stood in the narrow  street, and the air began to grow  heavier with the noise of volleys, yet  the hill was silent.  Rodman   rattled   his   reins   on   the  skirmishing. The central plaza and its  environs were holding the .interest of  the combatants.  "Sure, it means there was a leak.  When the bo?s marched up to San  Francisco, they were met with artillery  fire. It had been lipped off, and the  government had changed the garrison."  The Irish adventurer, who had led men  under half a dozen tatterdemalion  flags, smiled sarcastically. "Sure, it  was quite simple!"  "And where is thc fighting?" shouted  Rodman, as though he would hold  these men responsible for his shattered  scheme of empire.  "Everywhere. Vegas was in too deep  to pull out. The government couldn't  shell its own capital, and so it's street  to street scrappin' now. But we're  licked unless���������������������������" He halted suddenly,  with the gleam of an inspired idea in  his eyes. The leader of the Foreign  Legion was sitting on a table. Saxon  noted for the first' time that, besides  the punctured wrist, he was disabled  with a broken leg.  "Unless what?" questioned Colonel  Martinez. That officer was pallid under his dark skin from loss of blood.  One arm was bandaged tightly against  his side.  "Unless we can hold them for a time,  and get word to the diplomatic corps  to arbitrate. A delay would give us  a bit of time to pull ourselves together."  Martinez shrugged his shoulders.  "Impossible," he said, drearily.  "Wait. Pendleton, the American  minister is dean of the corps. Carter  here is practically a stranger in town  these days, and he's got nerve. I  know him. As an American, he might  possibly make it to the legation. Carter, will you try to get through the  streets to the American Legation? Will  you ?"  Saxon had leaped forward. He liked  the direct manner of this man, and the  legation was his destination.  "It's a hundred to one shot, Carter,  that ye can't do it." Murphy's voice,  in its excitement, dropped into brogue.  "Will ye try? Will ye tell him to git  th' diplomats togither, and ask an  armistice? Ye know our countersign,  'Vegas  y Libertad.' "  But Saxon had already started off in  the general direction of the main plaza.  For two .squares, he met no interference, For two more, he needed no  other passport than, the countersign,  then,-as~he turned a corner, ir seemed  to-him that he plunged at._.astep into  a reek of burnt powder and burning  houses; There was a confused vista of  men- in retreat, a roar that deafened  liim, and a sudden numbness. He  dropped to his knees, attempted to rise  to his feet, then seemed to sink into  a welcome sleep, as he stretched comfortably at length on the pavement  close to a wall, a detachment of routed  insurrectos sweeping by him in full  flight. '  -  pony's neck and rode apathetically forward. Something had gone amiss! Iiis  dreams were crumbling. Al the next  twriiu', lliuy drew. to. one bide._ A.company of troops swept by on tho double-  quick. They had been in action. Their  streamed with sweat, and many  wero bleeding. A few wounded men  were being carried by iheir comrades,  recognized   Captain   Morino,  our j faces  signs, and, if tilings look safe, we can  get in, collect your people, and get out  again at once. They can go with us to  tho yacht, and, if you like fireworks, we  can viow them from a safe distance."  La Punta, a.s they passed, lay sleepy  by her beach, her tattered palms  scarcely stirring their fronds in the  breathless air. Later, Puerto Frio  went alongside, as quiet and untouched with any sense of impending disturbance as the smaller town. Behind  the scattered outlying houses, the incline went up to the base of San Francisco, basking in the sun. The hill  was a huge, inert barrier between the  green and drab of thc earth and the  blue of the sky. Saxon drew a long  breath as he watched it in the early  morning when they passed. It was  diflicult to think of even an artificial  volcano awakening from such profound  slumber and  indolence.  "You'd better go below, and get  ready for the ride. We go on horseback. Got any riding togs?" Rodman  spoke rapidly, in crisp brevities. "No?  Well, I guess we can rig you out.  Cartwright has all sorts of things on  board. Change into them quick. You  won't need anything else. This is to  be a quick dash."  When the anchor dropped off Bella-  vista, Saxon stood in a fever of haste  and shouted desperately;  hut the officer .shook his head wildly, and went on.  Then, they saw a group of officers at  the door of a crude cafe. Among them,  Hodman recognized Colonel Martinez,  of Vegas' staff, and Colonel Murphy of  the Foreign Legion, yet they stood here  idle, and their faces told the story of  defeat. The filibuster hurled himself  from the saddle, and pushed his way  to the group, followed by Saxon.  "What does it mean, Murphy.'" he  demanded, breathlessly. "What in all  hell can it mean?"  Murphy looked up. He was wrapping his wrist with a handkerchief, one  end of which h_ held between his teeth.  Red spots were slowly spreading on  the white of the bandage.  "Sure, it means hell's broke loose,"  replied the soldier of fortune, with  promptness. Then, seeing Saxon, he  shot him a quick glance of recognition.  The eyes were weary, and showed out  of a face pasted with sweat and dust.  "Hello, Carter," he found time to say.  "Glad you're with us���������������������������-but it's all up  with our outfit."  This time, Saxon did not deny the  title.  "What happened?" urged Rodman, in  a frenzy of anxiety. The roaring of  rifles did not seem to come nearer, except  for detached  sounds of  sporadic  CHAPTER XIII. ���������������������������  - The passing of the fugitive insurrectos; their mad turning at bay for  one savage rally; their wavering and  breaking; their disorganized stampede  spurred on by a decimating fire and the  bayonet's point: these- were all incidents o'f a sudden squall that swept  violently through the narrow street, to  leave it again empty and quiet. It was  empty except for the grotesque shapes  that stretched in all the undignified  awkwardness of violent death and  helplessness, feeding thin lines of red  that trickled between the cobblestones.  It was silent except for echoes of the  stubborn "lighting ' comifig fro~m the*  freer spaces of the plazas and ala-  medas, where the remnants of the invading force clung to their positions  behind improvised barricades with the  doggedness of men for whom surrender  holds no element of hope or mercy.  Into the canyon-like street where the  frenzy of combat had blazed up with  such a sudden spurt and burned itself  out so quickly, Saxon had walked  around-the- angle of - a-wall,- just in  time to find himself precipitated into  one of the fiercest incidents of the  bloody forenoon.  Vegas and Miraflores had not surrendered. Everywhere, the insistent  noise told that the opposing forces  were still debating every block of thc  street, but in many outlying places, as  in this calle, the revolutionists were  already giving back. The attacking  army had counted on launching a blow,  paralyzing in its surprise, and had itself encountered surprise and partial  preparedness. It had set its hope upon  a hill, and the hill had failed. A prophet might already read that Vegas y  Libertad was lhe watchword of a lost  cause, and that its place in history  belonged on a page to be turned down.  But the narrow street in which Saxon lay remained quiet. An occasional  balcony window would open cautiously,  and an occasional head would be thrust  out to look up and down its length.  An occasional shape on the cobbles  would moan painfully, and shift its  position with the return of consciousness, or grow more grotesque in the  stiffness of death as the hours wore  into late afternoon, but the great iron-  studded street-doors of the houses remained barred, and no one ventured  along the sidewalks.,  Late in the day, when the city still  echoed to the snapping of musketry,  and deeper notes rumbled through the  din, as small field-pieces were brought  to bear upon opposing barricades, the  thing that Saxon had undertaken to  bring about occurred of its own initia  tive. Word reached the two leaders  that the representatives of the foreign  powers requested an. armistice for the  removal of the wounded and a conference at the American Legation, looking toward possible'adjustment. Both  the government and the insurrecto  commanders grasped at the opportunity  to let their men, exhausted with close  fighting, catch a breathing space, and  to remove from the zone of fire those  who lay disabled in the streets.  Then, as the firing subsided, some of  the bolder civilians ventured forth in  search for such acquaintances as had  been'caught in the streets between the  impact of forces in the unwarned  battle. For this hour, at least, all men  were safe, and there were some with  matters to arrange, who might not long  enjoy immunity.  Among them was Howard Rodman,  who followed up the path he fancied  Saxon must havo taken. Rodman was  haggard and distrait. His plans were  all in ruins, and, unless an amnesty  were declared, he must be once more  the refugee. His belief that Saxon  was really Carter led him into two  false conclusions. First, hc inferred  from this premise that Saxon's life  would be as greatly imperiled as his  own, and it followed that he, being in  his own words "no quitter," must see  Saxon out of the city, if the man were  alive. He presumed that in the effort  to reach the legation Saxon had taken,  as- would anyone familiar with the  streets, a circuitous course which  would bring him to the "Club Nacion-  <il," from which point he could reach  the "house he sought over the roofs.  He had no doubt that the American  had failed in his mission, because, by  any route, he must make his way  through the streets where he would  encounter fighting.  Rodman's search became feverish.  There was little time to lose. The con,-  ference might be brief���������������������������and, after that,  chaos! But fortune favored him.  Chance led him into the right street,  and he found the body. Being alone,  he stood for a moment indecisive. He  was too light a man to carry bodily  the wounded friend who lay at his feet.  He could certainly not leave the man,  for his ear at the chest, his finger on  the pulse, assured him that Saxon was  alive. He had been struck by a falling  timber from a balcony above, and the  skull seemed badly hurt, . probably  fractured.  As Rodman stood debating . the  dilemma, a shadow fell across the  pavement. He turned with a nervous  start to recognize at his back a newcomer, palpably a foreigner- and presumably a Frenchman, though his excellent English, when he spoke, was  only slightly touched with accent.- The  stranger dropper to his knee, and made  a rapid'" examination, as Rodman had  done. It did not occurf.to him at the  moment that the man* standing-near  him.was an acquaintance of.the other  who. lay unconscious^at their<feet.  "The gentleman is evidently a non-  combatalht-rand he is badly hurt, monsieur,", he volunteered. "We most assuredly cannot leave him here to die."  -Rodman answered with some eager-  ness*~  "Will you help me to carry him "to  a place where he'll be safe?"  "Gladly." The Frenchman looked  about. "Surely, he can be cared for  near here."  But Rodman laid a persuasive hand  on the other's arm.  "He must be taken to the water  front," he declared, earnestly. "After  the conference, he would not be safe  here."  "The stranger drew back, and stood  for a moment twisting his dark mustache, while his eyes frowned inquiringly. Hc was disinclined to take part  in proceedings that might have political after-effects. He had volunteered  to assist an injured civilian, not a participant or refugee. There were many,  such, in  the streets.  "This is a matter of life and death,"  Their task was like that of many  others. They passed a sorry procession of litters, stretchers, and bodies  hanging limply in the arms of bearers.  No one paid the slightest attention to  them, except an occasional sentry who  ga^ed on in stolid indifference.  At the tavern kept by the Chinaman,  Juan, and frequented by the roughest  elements that drift against such a  coast as this, Pvodman exchanged  greetings with many acquaintances.  There were several, wounded officers  of the Vegas contingent, taking advantage of the armistice to have their  wounds dressed and discuss affairs  over a bottle of wine. Evidently, they  had come here instead of to more central and less squalid places, with the  same idea that had driven Rodman.  They were the rats about to leave thc  sinking ship���������������������������if they could find a way  to leave. "  The tavern was an adobe building  with a corrugated-iron roof and a  largo open patio, where a dismal fountain tinkled feebly, and one or two  frayed palms stood dusty and disconsolate in the tightly trodden earth.  About the walls were flamboyant portraits of saints. From a small perch  in one corner, a yellow and green par-'  rot squawked incessantly.  But it was the life about the rough  area that gave the pic-  and variety.. Some had  into service to support  About others gathered  uniforms; men with  and   arms   in   slings.  tables of the  ture its color  been pressed  the wounded,  men in tattered  bandaged   heads  urged Rodman, rapidly~- "This man is  Mr. Robert Saxon. He had left this  coast with a clean bill of health. I explain all this because I need your help.  When he had made a part of his return journey, he learned by chance that  the city was threatened, and that a  lady who was very important to him  was in danger. He hastened back. In  order to reach her, he became involved,  and used the insurrecto countersign.  Mr.- Saxon -is-a famous-artist."- Rod-N  man was giving the version of the  story he knew tlie wounded man would  wish to have told. He said nothing of  Carter.  At the last words, the stranger started forward.  "A famous painter!" His voice was  full of incredulous interest. "Monsieur,  you can not by.any possibility mean  that this is Robert A. Saxon, the first  disciple of Frederick Marston!" The  man's manner became enthused and  eager. "You must know, monsieur,"  he went on, "lhat I am Louis I-Ierve,  myself a poor copyist of the great  Marston. At one time, I had the honor  lo be his pupil. To me, it is a pleasure  to be of any service to Mr. Saxon.  What are we to do?"  "There is a small sailors' tavern near  the mole," directed Rodman; "we must  take him there. I shall find a way to  have him cared for on a vessel going  seaward. I have a yacht five miles  away, but we can hardly reach it in  time."  "But medical attention!" demurred  Monsieur Herve.   "He must have that."  Rodman was.goaded into impatience  by the necessity for haste. Pie was in  no mood for debate.  "Yes, and a trained nurse!" he retorted, hotly. "We must do the best  we can. If we don't hurry, he will  need an undertaker and a coroner.  Medical attention isn't very good in  Puerto Frio prisons!"  The two men lifted Saxon between  them, and carried the unconscious man  toward  the mole.  Occasionally, one saw an alien, a sailor  whose clothes declared him to have-no  place in the drama of tho scene. These  latter were usually bolstering up their  bravado with aguardiente against the  sense of impending uncertainty that  freighted the atmosphere.  The Frenchman, sharing with Rodman the burden of the unconscious  painter, instinctively halted as the-  place with its wavering shadows and  flickering lights met his gaze at the  door. It was a picture of color and  dramatic intensity. He seemed to see  these varied faces, upon which sat  defeat and suffering, sketched on a  broad canvas, as Marston or Saxon  might have sketched them.     - _.  Then, he laid Saxon down on a corner   table,   and    stood   .watching    his  chance companion.who recognized brother   intriguers.     Suddenly, ��������������������������� Rodman's  eyes brightened, and he beckoned  his  lean hand toward two men who stood  apart.    Both  of them  had  faces  that  were in strong contrast to the swarthy"  Latin-American    countenances    about   -  them.     One  was  thin  and  blond,   the  other dark and heavy.    The two came-  across the patio together, and after a  hasty glance the slender man bent at  once over the prostrate figure on  the  table. ���������������������������_ His   deft  fingers- and  mariner  proclaimed-him-the surgeon:'-His^uni-  '  form was nondescript;.-hardly more a"-**  uniform-than  the riding clothes worn   .;  by Saxon himself,, but on his shoulders -:  he had pinned a major's straps.   -This.:  was Dr. Cornish, of the Foreign Legion, -  but for the moment he was absorbed z  in his work and forgetful of his disastrously adopted  profession  at arms.  He called for-water and; bandages,  and, while he worked, Rodman was  talking with the other man. -Herve  stood silently looking on. He recog- -  nized that the dark man was a ship-  captain ��������������������������� probably - commanding a  tramp freighter. -,     - -  "When did you come?" inquired  Rodman.  "Called at this port for coal,"' responded the other. "I've been down  to-Rio with flour, and I have to call at  La Guayra.    I sail in two hours."  "Where do you go from- Venezuela?"^  "I sailed out of Havre, and I'm going  back with fruit.    Tho Doc's had about   .  enough.    I'm  goin'  lo  take  him  with  me."  For a moment, Rodman stood speculating, then he bent eagerly forward.  "Paul," he whispered, "you know me.  Tve~  or  two   in  the  ���������������������������Th frand  thc-  done you a turn  past."  The sailor nodded.  '"Now, I want you to do me a turn.  I want you to take this man with you.  He must get out of here, and he can't  care for himself. He'll be all right���������������������������  either all right or dead���������������������������before you  land on tho other side. The Doc here  will look after him. He's got money.  Whatever you do for him, he'll pay  Omndsomely. - He's - a- rich-man."- -  filibuster was talking rapidly  earnestly.  "Where do I take him?"  asked  captain,  with  evident reluctance.  "Wherever you're going; anywhere  away from hero. He'll make it all  right with you."  The captain caught the surgeon's-  eyes, and the surgeon nodded.  Rodman suddenly remembered  on's story, the story of the old  that was nothing more to him  another life, and the other man  whom he had turned his back,  sibly, there might even be efforts at  locating the conspirators. He leaned  over, and, though he sunk his voice  low, Herve heard him.say:  "This gentleman doesn't want  found just now. If people ask  him, you don't know who he is,  prende?"  "That's no lie, either," growled the  shipmaster. "I ain't got an idea who  he is." I ain't sure I want him on my  hands."  A sudden quiet came on the place.  An officer, had entered the door, his  face pale, and, as though with an instantaneous prescience that he bore  bad tidings, the noises dropped away.  The officer raised his hand, and his  words fell on absolute silence as he  said in Spanish:  "The conference is ended. Vegas  surrenders���������������������������without terms."  "You see!"  exclaimed Rodman,  excitedly.   "You see, it's the last chance!  Paul, you've, got to take him!    In  a.

Some of the trifling things of childhood are things most vividly engraved
on the tablets of an old man's memory.
We wonder, sometimes, if it isn't one
of the signs of advancing second
childhood that causes our minds fo revert so frequently to the incidents ���������/.
youth���������and especially to the early
years of pioneering in Kansas.
Even in the most trying times of the
first settlers of this part of the State,
with hunger on one side and danger of
losing one's scalp on the other, the
most humorous things would take
place. So it wasn't all gloom in ihe
work of shaping the destinies of Kansas.
A Kansas editor was born in a foreign land, and went to Kansas when
about eight yoars old. "Setting sail
for America" in those days was quite
an event to all concerned, and the bidding of good-bys and the saying of
farewells was something of a serious
formality���������ancl the preparations were
many and great.
There was a formal farewell dinner
given by an aunt on the last night
spent in Wales, the climax of which
was a big plum pudding over which
some brandy was poured before cutting
it, the room darkened and then a
match set to the brandy. It was a
weird affair, and added to the mysterious frame of mind in tho family regarding the great America.
Then the kindly disposed aunt gave
mother a white stone jar,' filled with
orange marmalade, as a delicacy that
might prove enticing in convalescence
after seasickness. It is simply a matter of correct historical record to say
now that the future editor of these
notes ate most of it as the rest of the
family did not recover until it was
about all gone. '
But it's the stone jar that figures m
this story. It was the family heirloom, thc receptacle of precious things
of the household, because of its
origin and association. It was lost to
the family through an early Kansas'in-
One day a band of 'about twenty'
Cheyenne Indians came into the cabin,
on the White Rocks, in about 1S68,
when they made about their last raid
against the settlers in this -part' of the
State. They came -into' the cabin
boldly, without, knocking,on .the door.
The "men folks" were'over on the
claim, digging a well���������and a child was
despatched-to tell them" to stay" there.
It was'nearly noon, and the dinner was
ready on the table. The Indians .insisted -"on eating it���������and they. did.
They made the unprotected woman���������
With only small children as her companions���������cook such food ,as was left in
the house',.until she told .them "she"had
no more.* .Then one'big buck,-the leader" of the-gang, went snooping about,
looking for:more: to eat.V-He.'.espied the
white stone, marmalade jar on a shelf
and" took'it, down.' It'was filled wilh a
yeast starter.    .      ~        .",;".
The Indian stuck _ his nose into the
jar and took one whiff of it and as soon
as he realized that he might live, after
the experience,, his ;.indignation '- was
something to-be admired in its sav-
.agery. Mother said she forgot for the
moment the danger - to ffherself *and
children, in watching the facial contortions of that Indian. His vocabulary of
English words was' quite .limited.
-I-Ie knew only one word that could
convey his feelings, or express his contempt for the .ingredient of the white
man's civilization���������and  he*- used  it.
He said "damn!" and threw the
precious stone jar,' an heirloom from
across the sea, as far as his -strength
would permit him out through the
cabin door and into, the depths of
water in thc White .Rock creek���������and
then mother laughed.
For her sense of humor under such���������
lo the Indian���������trying circumstances
she was kicked out of doors ancl
threatened with the"loss of'her scalp
unless she became more serious.
But in the many years thereafter she
-sa id=sh e=T_ Hera 1 d=iTavT"la1[igliltl=lfStl:=s1rer
known that dire calamity was about to
befall her. And' that's what became of
aunt's orange marmalade jar.
Eugene Jacquemin, of Puyallup,
Wash., has acquired his -heart's desire,
a farm on which are pure white animals and fowls, all housed in spotless
shelters, and permitted to roam within
bounds of snowy fences. This "white
farm" is unique because it contains
many specimens of albino wild animals and birds.
While horses do all the farm work
ancl are the drivers and saddle animals.
White ponies play with the children.
White cows furnish butter an.l milk.
There are white hogs, sheep ancl goals.
The pigeons, chickens, ducks, geese,
turkeys, and guinea fowls are all
while. The guinea fowls were imported from Africa. A novelty is a pair of
peacocks pure white. About the yard
three Spitz dogs play and white Persian cats lounge on the porches. In
the orchard the eccentric farmer has an
albino elk, three white deer, a mountain sheep and a polar bear cub. There
are in avaries a pure white m.-tgpie,
white blackbirds, pheasants, wild
swan, cranes and storks.
Fresh air enthusiasts are familiar
enough to most of us, but we hear less
of enthusiasm for light. Darkened
parlors, darkened bedrooms, darkened
sickrooms, are too common. ' Sir B. W.
Richardson, the eminent London scientist and physician, declared that when
the professors of healing enter a sickroom their first words in most cases
ought to be Goethe's dying exclamation, "More light! More light!" The
light of the sun is God's own microbe-
killer, germicide, disinfectant, prophylactic, sickness healer. There is no
physician, no chemical antidote, no
compounded prescription to be compared with sunlight. Without it, nature
could not perform her functions. Man",
beast, bird, insect would fall victims
to the deadly gases that would prevail.
The horrid mists and deadly gases are
dispersed and decomposed by the action of ��������� light. Let it in,' everywhere!
Let the light in more ancl more abundantly. Faded carpets are not as pitiful
as faded cheeks. Spoiled "cushions arc-
trivial compared with spoiled health.
Darkened - rooms ��������� are too suggestive^ of

One of' the most potent arguments
against the construction of the /canal at
Panama,~i*n the days when the building
of this work by the United States was
under discussion, was the frightful
number of fatalities which were supposed to have attended the construction of the Panama railroad in the
middle of the nineteenth century. "A
dead man for each crosstie" was a favorite theme with the magazine writer
and the politician. General George AV.
Davis. U.S.A., first governor of the
Canal Zone, has exploded this time-
honored story by showing* that whereas the number of ties amounted to
L'10,000, the road never employed, Jur-
ing its five years of construction, more
than 7,000 laborers. In its first four
years of operation the railroad carried
L96.000 passengers, not one of whom
co tracted illness as the result of
crossing the isthmus.
Russia is to adopt electric traction
on a number of sections of railroad,
especially in the district around St.
Petersburg. The conditions are favorable, for carrying this out, for a good
supply of water power for operating
electric stations can be secured from
the falls of the Volkoff river, in the
Novgorod region.
Navies of the South American republics are not large, but the.individual
units, at least of the newer ships, are
very powerful. Two battleships now
being built in England for Chile will
?be 2S.000 tons displacement and of
twenty-three knots speed. They will
carry ten 14-inch guns in turrets ancl
four 21-inch torpedo tubes, -and they
will have a normal coal supply of 3,500
tons, with 450 tons of oil fuel. Their
length of 025 feet will render them the
longest battleships' in existence.
- Although the early, expectations of
the wholesale substitution of aluminum
for steel and iron have not materialized, the demand for the new alloy has
grown enormously. From a pro'duction
in the United States of less than 100,-
000 pounds in 1SS3, in 1893 the output
had grown to 350,000 pounds, in 1903 to
.7.500,000 pounds and today it is in excess of 50,000,000 "pounds. **
The decision to demolish the ancient
wall surrounding ^Shanghai city is an
interesting sign of the times as well as
the preliminary' to"an ambitious scheme
of development. ..'"",'     ...       ..
Scores of coolies* were at work recently with ".pick - and shovel on that
portion of th^ ..city, .rampart which,
faces, the street *leading--*Eo -the old
yam en.      The   wall   itself   is  several
times wider than the alleyways along
which pedestrians and rickshaws make
their devious and difficult way in that
part of the city. The space acquired
by the removal of the wall should
therefore if used to best advantage be
of considerable value.
It appears to have been suddenly discovered that the wall is useless as* a
means of defence and that it is an ugly,
impediment   to   the   development   and
improvement   of the   native   quarters'..
The work was put in hand immediately
the order.went forth from the Town <-
Hall Works Department that it was to "
be executed without fail.    '    - -   -'
- The first section to' be removed is-"
that stretching from near the old '
yamen along by-the great East Gate to "
the United Fire Brigade buildings. The *"
moat or creek beneath the wall is.to' -
be filled in and it is reported a broad. ."
maloo is to take its place.
The owners and inhabitants of shan- ~
ties on the wall have been ordered to
remove these and any fences, material, :
etc., which would impede the progress,
of the work.     An outcry might have
been  expected,  since  the  scheme"- had
been  strongly  opposed,  but * the' order \
has  been  quietly  accepted.      In'fact, ;
very little interest seems to^havebeen. .
aroused by the work,  even though  it   ,,**
inaugurates a'striking change.

In Massachusetts" the'Supreme Court
has held that a garage is not a stable
in the meaning of this term in realty
restrictions. This is a just decision
which lecognizes changes in life, custom and habits and acts on them.
An improvement company had sold
land subject to the familiar restriction
that "no stable, private or otherwise,
shall ev.r be erected or maintained on
any portions" of the1* land sold. The
court decided that a "stable" in such a
restriction involved 'the ' prese'nee of
domestic animals, like horses, or
cattle." If these were absent the building, the court hold, was not a "stable,"
even if the dictionary defines a garage
as a "stable for motor cars."
The occupants of the next lot disliked a garage as much as a stable.
Hence the action. In its bearing on
realty restrictions in other States, this
is an important decision and it comes
from a court whose findings are hetrd
with respect by the bench in all States.

End������������������r*y  In his address to the citizens of  Enderby last Wednesday evening, in  the Opera House, under the auspices  of the Board of Trade, Dr. Elliot S.  Rowe, of Vancouver, save not only a  most interesting talk about the aims  and ob3ects of the Progress Club of  that city, but he told also many valuable truths that have a bearing on  the advance of every municipality in  the Province, and particularly our  own town. In explaining his presence in Enderby, Dr. Rowe said that  he had been sent out through the  Province by the Progress Club to  seek and to offer co-operation from  and to the Boards of Trade, in the  work of endeavoring to build up  British  Columbia.  The Progress Club, .vhich has succeeded the old Vancouver Tourist Association, consists of some 900 members, all of whom are residents of the  city of Vancouver, or adjacent municipalities. The ideal of the Progress  Club, the speaker said, is to make  British Columbia the most prosperous Province in the Empire, that is,  the Province in which the opportunities for making a living and for  human betterment shall be as good  as its enormous natural wealth and  unequalled conditions will make possible. The purposes of the Club are  to help in the building up of every  part of the Province, and particularly  the agricultural interests, for without  a prosperous"and well-developed farm-  back-it up,-no-large  -PROFESSIONAL    --���������������������������  p W.

It  | remains for the cities to help the developing districts around about them  j if they are to make head themselves.  ; The Progress Club wishes to be  j known as an organization of builders,  lit believes in making more easily  (available to the farmer the markets  | of the Province, and to enable the  j people to derive the greatest possible  j returns from the marketing of their  ; products. The club believes our pro-   -ducts    should    be   sent   out in their  WATTP'R ftO-RmsON highest form  of    manufacture.

It  west, Enderby, B, c i believes that   these resources can be  ������������������������������������������������������ | manufactured    profitably in this Pro-  ENDERBY   COTTAGE  HOSPITAL j vi������������������ce-       While    recognizing that the  i cultivation   of   agricultural lands is  MISS Warwick, Proprietress j essential   to   any   measure of indus  trial and   commercial   expansion,    it  ' admits, as its plain duty, the obliga-  (tion to employ   every   means   to en-  cour-age=4ocal=-mamifacturef=and^the=  cultivation of fertile areas as are now  unoccupied.  In this connection, Dr. Rowe was  particular to point out how much we  'deed to encourage local manufacture,  | and how best to do so. He said it  ' rested with every citizen to do his  j part; that if the merchant felt disposed   to   handle    any    manufactured  sented. This work is now being  looked after by the Provincial Government, and it is expected that in a  short time the necessary information  will have been assembled. In Vancouver the work is being done through  the office of the Progress Club,, and  splendid progress has been made. It  is. the club's desire to have in thc  Vancouver office information relating  to this subject covering all of the  Province. "We want to be able, for  instance," said Dr. Rowe, "to tell  | inquirers what openings there are for  manufacturers in any particular line,  and where, or we want to bc able to  say concerning any particular locality what openings for certain industries exist in that locality."  To collect this information involves  an enormous amount of labor, but it  is worth doing, and if the work is  properly divided, it can be done  quickly, and without imposing any  great burden on any one place. For  instance, if the Board of Trade of  each locality will prepare the data,  covering its jurisdiction, and furnish  us with a copy of its findings, it will  be easy for us to put this into convenient form and make it available  for the many persons who write or  call for information of that kind.  There is another committee whose  duty it is to see to all matters relating to the settlement of vacant  lands. The purpose of the club is to  collect and to have in convenient  form, information as to lands available in or adjacent to every municipality in the Province!' It will give  out what information is can about  Government lands, but this information, the speaker admitted, would  have'to be somewhat vague, owing to  the lack of information on the subject in the land department of the  Government. It is the club's intention to concern itself more particularly with lands lying within the  bounds of the Municipalities, or very  close thereto, in the hands of private  parties or corporations. The club  wants to know the quantity of such  lands that are available, the conditions of settlement, transportation  facilities, capacity of the soil, results obtained, market for agricultural products and all matters of similar kind. For these statistics the  club will have t0 depend upon the local-Board of Trade.  Dr. Rowe explained that the club is  arranging' for the permanent exposition of Provincial resources, in which  it is hoped every municipality will be  represented. It is proposed" to keep  a permanent exhibit along .the lines  of a chamber of "commerce, where it  will.be,possible-to show visitors what  are the, chief products of each" section,  and to-have a lecture hall in connection where visitors may daily hear  speakers tell of'the natural and manufactured products of each locality.  For these exhibits and data, the club  will also have to "depend on the enterprise and co-operation of the local  Boards of Trade.

Sam Hughes Makes a Telling  ��������������������������� Speech on the Militia at Vancouver  '.���������������������������l-V  In an address before a meeting  of the citizens of Vancouver-a  few nights ago the Minister of  Militia, Col. Sam Hughes made  the -following remarks. In the  opening paragraph will be found  a thought for the city of Enderby  to take home, since Col. Hughes  is reported to have made the  statement after his visit to .the  Valley that the Department did  not feel disposed to accept a drill  hall site from an individual member of the community.  The Vancouver Province says:  Opening his speech, .Colonel  Hughes commented on the laxity  of Vancouver in the matter of securing a drill hall site.  "We have appropriated $100,-  000 for you and we are how waiting for you to present us with a  drill hall-site," he said. "I have  received offers of sites all over  Canada with the exception of this  city.   Regina has given me a site  - valued at $100,000; Moose Jaw's  site is worth $40,000; little Prince  Albert gives me one valued at  $20,000; Edmonton's site is worth  $70,000; Calgary" contributed a  site valued at. $100,000; Vernon  - has given a site and yesterday  North Vancouver ~ contributed  three-and a half acres valued at  $18,000.  "I am sure that if you all take  up the matter with your mayor  and aldermen I shall have-a fine  r site offered me in the centre of  the city on .which can be erected  a drill hall worthy of Vancouver.''  --���������������������������-.' It is significant,''- went on the  : Colonel, "that the, people want  drill halls. AIL over Canada' I  get demands for drill sheds and  this is most encouraging as it  - shows an increasing interest-in  . the militia.. And:in,this connection-let. me say \that "militia and  . ^militarism, are-" very .different  ; -things.; The militia.is a force of  \ thev people.' Militarism \ is. the  "'tool of the "few.". ' - /''-  . '' The Colonel went on to ,whip-  ,; lash.the "people who in Canada  ,,cry down the militia.   He des-  Tcribed them as . cranks  of  the  t:worst.kind and added that they  were the most" ' 'narrow, ~,igno"r-  . .ant and prejudiced men in; the  7 community.",  ".. ��������������������������� "I shall never be found apolo-  - . gisihg for'the expenditure on the  -militiar" he said.   "It seems to  . have been the policy of my predecessors to smuggle the militia  estimates through the House as  if they were ashamed of them. I  shall invite' publicity and criticism.  ; , Declaring that the time to train  boys in the principles of military  drill was when they were young,  the Colonel called attention to the  ���������������������������1far>.h.t.hflt-Wo1fe���������������������������was-adjutant._of  his regiment when he was only  15 years of age."  "The men who fought under  Wellington were mere striplings"  he said. "There was that gallant  Welsh regiment which defeated  the French cuirassiers at Quatre  Bras and the following day taunted them and dared them to attack again. They were all youngsters with scarcely a hair on their  lips. Our forefathers were all  trained in the arts of war from  boyhood up and were efficient  soldiers in the art of warfare, as  practised then, as soon as they  donned the uniform." ,  "These cranks who cry down  the service say we want to train  our boys to become .murderers,  but the soldier is not a hired assassin. The soldier is the last  man to cause war. In Toronto  we have found that the schoolboys who have undergone military drill have never come before  a police judge. The boy who is  trained is better physically, morally, mentally and spiritually." ���������������������������--  "My object in developing, the  cadet system is to make men in  Canada who will take their place  in all ranks of industry as efficient citizens and who, if the need  comes, will be able to defend  their horns and loved' ones. They  will be trained men capable of  doing it. I have no use for the  loyalist who puffs out his chest  and declares'I. am loyal; J believe in the old flag,' and then  will not take up a rifle and learn  how to use it. Those men who  shout could not hit an opponent  in a hundred yards. That sort  of loyalty is a menance.  * 'A thousand untrained loyalists  are worse than baggage,- because," he added,. "you don't  have to feed baggage.,'  The Colonel referred to the recent cadet camp at Grenfell and  said it was. a marked success.  "We exspected 500 boys and 780  turned up,": he said.    -       r  ��������������������������� * 'The "militia has suffered in the  past because"amongtheisplendid  young fellows who join, we.used  to,find two or.;three>in'every  corps"who were unworthy, to  wear the uniform^ We are doing our best ��������������������������� to weed them- out  andTthink\w������������������ ��������������������������� are. succeeding/  At Niagara ..camp,this spring a  report was published tha.t;,there  were scenes of riot and drunkenness among the men, but investigation showed that it was quite  untrue and.had been started by  parties interested in forcing .us  to establish wet canteens in the  camps.-   - - '     ��������������������������� "  .   .  OUR LEADING PULP WOODS.  Spruce  ���������������������������p    continues to hold its  place as the most important of  Canadian pulp woods. In 1911,  according to a recent bulletin of  the Forestry Branch of the Department of the Interior, over  four-fifths of the wood consumed  in the pulp industry was of this  species. The total increase of  73,801 cords in pulpwood consumption between 1910 and 1911  was almost entirely confined to  this species. Balsam fir, hemlock and pbplar together make  up twenty per cent of the total  consumption. The Province of  Quebec is still at the head of the  provinces in the pulp industry,  consuming 58 per cent of the  total pulpwoqd cut. Ontario used  in 1911 nearly one third, and New  Brunswick, Nova Scotia and  British Columbia together consumed approximately one fifteenth of the total.  Balsam fir is coming more generally into use, as a pulp wood.  It has been found that up to forty  per .cent of this species .can be  used with spruce.-to produce good  paper. As a-result balsam fir is  now worth-$4.60 per cord, or 69  cents per cord more than in 1910.  Spruce is worth $6.47, an increase of 42 cents per cord over  191������������������-     '  The manufacture of saw-mill  refuse into pulp has ,begun in  Canada,during the past year. It  is estimated that if the' material  which goes to waste in the woods  and mills of the Dominion were  made into- ,pulp the product  would be greater in amount than  at present made from the regular  cut.

The  doctor iirescribed i'or the hid and also  som him medicine. I-Ie was obliged  tu continue his visits for two  weeks.  In due time and with much anxiety  the father approached the physician  for his bill.  "Now* I have made two separate bills.  This one is for the medicine from (he  druggist, and this one is for my visits,"  said fhe doctor, smilingly.  Tlie man scanned each of the bills  in amazement and realized full well he  could not pay both. After a few moments he drew a purse from his pocket  and placed a five-dollar bill in the  physician's hand, saying: ."This will  pay for the drugs, doctor, and���������������������������we. will  return your calls."  * *    *  - An elderly gentleman, clad in an immaculate suit of black, was seated on  a bench in the park.en joy ing the lovely  spring day.

There is always a market demand for hini at fair prices, and  while the farmer may not often realize  .���������������������������iliiniiiiiallv higli prii-es for him the  same mav'be said of many of the other  classes of light horses. The man who  wishes to raise saddle horses must use a  thoroughbred sire if he expects to raise  the best. The best saddle horses have  alwavs a strong dash of this breed in  their' make up.' The term "thoroughbred'" is very often improperly used in  designating the breeding of animals of  anv'kind whether cattle, sheep, swine,  or'dogs. Thoroughbred is the name ol  a special breed of horses and should  never be used as a qualifying term as to  the breeding of any other animal. .It js  incorrect to speak of a thoroughbred  cow or sheep, "pure-bred" or registered is the proper term, ft is equally  wrong to fcppsik of a thoroughbred Clyde  or liackuey when wc mean pure-bred or  registered animal.

Jn the first place he  has in a very marked degree elasticity  of movement; this makes him light on  his feet and gives him that springy, clastic gait so necessary in a good riding  horse. Then he has a highly organized  nervous system which gives hini more  courage, force, and stamina than any  other "breed of horse, all m which cpuili  ties are necessary in a riding horse,  especially across country where still'  .jumps and hard runs are always part ol  "tlie game. And liuallv he has more  speed at the running gail than any  other horse, and while this is probably  of less .importance than some of the  characteristics just mentioned, yet its  \altie is woll recognized in the case of  hunters where ability I.o gallop fast, as  well :b carry weight, is very much to be  desired. However, while speed is desirable iu a thoroughbred sire there are  other qualities such as thickness and  deprh of body and weight of bone of  much greater importance. Almost any  thoroughbred has speed enough to sire  good saddle horses.  The qualities just named together  with a density of bone and toughness ol  all the tissues give this horse a great  degree of "quality," and there is no  other breed can compare with him m  this respect. Ho is the " blue-blooded ''  animal in the horse kingdom, and most  of the excellent qualities found in any  ol' the other breeds of light horses come  from a strong infusion of thoroughbred  blood.  'The. light horse interests of Canada  owe much to,this horse; and some of the  best high jumpers in the world have  been bred in our country. Now Avhile  the average Canadian farmer cannot  breed and. train racehorses or high  ���������������������������jumpers, vet he can-use the thoroughbred sire'to good purpose in producing  useful saddle horses. There is no other  sire will make such au impression on a  cold blooded mare.

They  quality and stamina and  pcarance from the sire, and  weight from the. dam. and  such au animal is not quite high-class  enough for a first rate saddle horse he  makes an'excellent work horse on the  farm, he is tough and wiry, with great-  powers of endurance, and when neces-  sarv will be able to pull a buggy along  the" roads at the rate of eight or ton  miles an hour and be none the worse for  it afterwards.

The automobile has given the harness  horse trade a pretty hard knock, but  there is an increasing demand for hunter, "saddle, and . combination horses  which can' only be met by thc intolli  gent use of the thoroughbred sire, and  the farmer who has suitable mares  ought to make good by raising saddle  horses.  DEVELOPING   THE   FOAL  ���������������������������==TlTC=^lcVelo'pinent-=of���������������������������the^foal^Gom-^  monccs long before it is foaled. The  care of the pregnant mare has a very  marked influence upon the colt in  foetal life, and the colt's embryonic  existence must exert a certain amount  of influence upon its development during the early stages of its actual life.  It is generally conceded that greater  success attends the raising of colts  from mares which have not been  pampered, -btiL_have _ been ..constantly,  exercised, preferably at light work. His  safe, tinder careful management, to  work- the average farm mare even up  to the day of foaling. Mnros must be  liberally fed, but not overfed, especially on grain. There is, however,  little danger of them becoming too fat  if kept at work.  With the mare treated in this way,  foaling lime presents fewer troubles.  Having been safely delivered of her  foal, the mare should be given absolute rest for from ten days to two  weeks, when she can bo again gradually started at light work. When thc  mare is first put to work, Lhc coll may  be allowed to run with her, provided  thore i.s no crop in the way that may  bc injured, whieh is generally the case  in early spring. Jf kept in the stable,  and only allowed nourishment when  the mare comes in at mid-day and  again at night, the fasts are very  often of too long duration for the  best interests of the 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 the dam is, helpful, because it  allows the colt to nurse frequently,  which aids il in getting a good start,  and keeps the mare's udder in better  condition than it would otherwise be.  As the colt gets older, it can be kept  in the stall for gradually increasing  lengths of time, until, in, a short time,  the mare can.,be worked a full half  d y without returning to the colt.  Care must, however, be taken that the  Greatest Invention of Age  For Hoarseness, Weak Throat  Nothing So Far Discovered Is So Beneficial to Public Speakers, Ministers,  Singers     and     Teachers     as  Catarrhozone  Pocause of Its strengthening influence upon thc vocal cords, Catarrhozone cannot be too highly recommended as a wonderful voice improver.  It almost instantly removes huskiness  or hoarseness, thus insuring clearness,  and brilliancy of tone. Catarrhozone  keeps tho mucous surfaces in perfect  condition, and its regular use absolutely prevents colds and throat Irritation,  thereby removing tbe singer's greatest  source of anxiety���������������������������un Illness of voice.

"My trouble started with a cold,"  Mr. Moulaison says, "My muscles  would cramp and I had backache and  dizzy spells. My head ached, and I  had a tired, nervous feeling, while  specks of light flashed in front of my  eyes.  "I suffered in this way for over two  months and was treated by two doctors, but they didn't seem to be able  to do much for me.

     . to provide the
amount of $24,000���������the city's share of
the cost of .the new school building
tobe erected in Enderby. As was
stated last week, the Provincial Government has agreed to pay 60 per
cent of the cost of a 557,000 or $60,-
000 school building if the city of Enderby will put up 40 per cent of the
cost. This is the policy of the McBride Government���������to help those who
are prepared to help themselves. The
Gavernment virtually says: "We will
put $1.50 to your $1 in the school
building, up to $35,000 on our part,
and when the building is up it will
he all yours, for your children and
the children of the district. But you
must do your part or we will not do
In submitting "this by-law the City
Council has placed the matter before
the rate payers, and it now rests
with them whether they will pass the
by-law and get solidly into the forward movement, or .defeat it and sit
down. It is inconceivable that the
by-law should be . defeated, ^and yet
it will not be wise for anyone having
a desire to see the new school erected
���������to be too .optimistic in the matter,
and allow others to do the work for
its passage.

The new roof plan is also important. The roof elevation is from the
centre to the walls of the building.
In the centre of the roof basin are
large open trenches heated by steam.
The snow melts as fast as it falls,
and the water is carried off by interior drain pipes which run from the
roof to the drains buried beneath the
basement. In this connection, Mr. A.
Pulton; for the School Board, visited
a Revelstoke school last winter after
ten feet of snow had fallen there,,and
he found the school roof clean of
snow. 'He was informed by the officers of-the school that the snow gavo

as possible before the ratepayers.
When the question of a new school
was taken up'by the* School Board at
the commencement. of their term of
office they had no" means of knowing
what the cost would be for a "modern
eight-room school building, with the
workmanship and material" the best
obtainable. ��������� The .Board did hot feel
that they would be justified in asking
for anything less than the best." And
when Mayor Ruttan and the members
of the School'Board went to Victoria
to. place before the Government. Enderby's need, they were somewhat in
the.dark, as to cost. ���������> The -Govern-'

The building will be 110x78 feet

basement -floors and .the .three entrances to, -the- school-rooms are' to
be floored with five inches of cement,
covered .with a coating of^asphaltum'
tempered" to withstand . the .extremes
of heat and cold. In the basement
will be a play room and lunch room
for the girls, , and the same for the
boys. - These rooms" are :to be'24x32

will be the lavatory, rooms, "etc.-The
floors and ,walls>bf ' these rooms are
to be ' finished.  with - cement,. and' as-
tion dividing the   assembly hall will
provide the extra rooms.
In addition to the rooms enumerated there are book rooms, storage
rooms, etc., provided for the teaching staff, and each room will be wired
for electric lights and call bells.
The cost of maintenance of the new
school will be little in excess of that
of the present frame school 'building.
It is estimated that if the full com- -
plement of rooms are occupied the
heating cost will be probably $300 ��������� a,
year more than the cost of the poorly", heated and non-ventilated old
frame building which contains only
four rooms.

There can be no question as to the
wisdom of the School Board in deciding upon and standing out for the
better-improved and more substantial
building. When the Hon. Price Ellison was ma'de familiar with the action of the Board he recognized at
once that the more expensive building
with its unquestioned improvements
was much to be preferred, and his advice was to build according to these
specifications,   and he 'ost no opp'or- ....
tunity to urge upon his colleagues 25x32 feet
the additional grant asked for. For trance is a
many reasons the action of the Trustees is to be commended. The adoption of the Pease Economical Heating and Ventilating System is of itself worth a large portion of thc additional cost. By this system there

At  the   "Macle-in-Canada   Train
The exhibits on lho "Made-in-Canada" train, which is now touring Western Canada, arc opening the eyes of
thousands of visitors. Many of us are
too prone to be-litlle our own goods
and to consider that thc word "imported" covers a multitude of virtues.
Those who go to see the "Made-in-

An exhibit which is doubly interesting to the mon is that of the Imperial

Arab horses and Eastern horses.
(3) To encourage Arab horse breeding in Egypt, the country which is most
adapted to that purpose, as'it possesses all the essentials necessary to ensure success in rearing the Arab horse,
viz.: dry desert air und hard dry
ground, a hot oven climate and practically speaking, no rainfall. All these
conditions make it possible to keep
both mares and produce all tho year
round in thc open, withouL shelter of
any kind and thus ensure their retaining that hardiness of ' constitution,
those clean strong legs and wonderfully
sound lungs, which are the principal
characteristics of thc Arab horse.
Egypt  is  also  most  favorably  situated   as   a  central   rallying  point  for
the   Arab   horse,   being   close   to   the
Arabian  Peninsula and  Syrian desert,
and at no groat distance from Bombay,

Arabian deserts; it wishes also to enter into communication with tho horse
merchants of Koweit, Mosul and Bombay, to induce them to send to Ciui.>,
for Lhe show, some first class Arabian
stallions.    Jt would be highly desirable
at  thc  same  time  to  got  the  private

as to gather- together as large a choice
as possible i'or intending buyers.
Arab blood is essential for improving and renovating other breeds, but
the thoroughbred Arab has neither the
height nor the substance necessary for
heavy weight riding horses nor for
carriage horses. The best 'all round
horse for riding, driving and military
purposes is, undoubtedly, the Anglo-
Arab. Arabs crossed with cart horses
have given tho best of results as i.e.
the Boulonnais, the Percheron and the
Russian Orloff trotter, which latter
is thc descendant of an Arab stallion
and a Danish mare.
, To demonstrate at the show thc
utility of crossing pure bred Arabs
with other, breeds it is purposed to
have classes for those breeds which
trace back-their origin to such crosses,
or havo been periodically re-crossed
again with Arabs. '.Such aro: 1st, The
Russian Strclets breed, the Cossakand
the'" Raslopchine .horses,* .2nd,- the
French Anglo-Arabs; 3rd, 'the Hungarian horses..
. These classes would prove how enduring the Arab blood is when 'used
judicially, for notwithstanding tnat in
some cases many decades have passed
since this crossing was made, lhe descendants will retain the best characteristics of  thc Arab horse.
To demonstrate further the suitability of the Arab horse for military
I purposes, it would be advisable to organize during thc show, long distance
(SO-]00 kilometres) races with officer
riders in full marching equipment. To
these races ought to be invited light
cavalry officers from all European-
countries, also Russian Cossacks, Australian and  American rough riders. .

Trade in booby eggs is one of the

ago the JBritish seamen gavo thc name
"booby" to several of tho species of
ganncls, because these fowls are regarded as stupid. Thc eggs are gathered in vast quantities on the islets at
certain seasons of the year and taken
to Port Antonio by thc boatload. .The'

the occasion of no little excitement
among the Negro women, who buy"
them by the box and thon sell-them by
retail chiefly in Kingston, though they
arc also sold in Spanish Town, Port

towns on the island. These eggs are
about two-thirds the size of an. ordinary hen's egg, and are quite palatable. '

CHAPTER   XIV.  When Duska Filson had gone out into the woods that day to read Saxon's  runaway  letter,  she  had  at once  decided to follow, with regal disdain of  half-way     methods.       To     her    own  straight-thinking    mind,    unhampered  with petty conventional  intricacies;  it  was all perfectly clear.    The ordinary  woman would have .waited, perhaps in  deep distress and tearful  anxiety, for  some news of the man she loved, be-  --cause he had gone away, and it is not  customary for a woman to follow her  wandering lover over quandrant of the  r,     earth's   circumference..   Duska  Filson  was not of _the, type that sheds tears  or remains .inactive.    To  one man  in  the world, she had said, "I love you,"  - and to her that settled everything.   He  had gone to  the place where his life  was   imperiled   in   thc  effort  to  bring  back to her a clear record.   If he were  ��������������������������� fortunate,    her    congratulation,   direct  >  from  her own  heart  and  lips^ should  be the first he heard.    If he were to  be   plunged   into   misery,   then   above  '"   all  other   times  she  should  be  there.  -   'Otherwise, .what was the use of loving  him?-*       c'  *    - But,; when' the  steamer   was - under  " way,','crawling slowly- down the .world  by the same route he had "taken, the  .  days'between quick sunrise.and'sud-  '   den sunset seemed interminable.-  "-" - Outwardly,- she^was-'lhe.blithest pas-  .,* - senger .on the steamer, _andN, daily ..she  held a-sort, of salon for the">few .other  passengers'-who  were   doomed  to  the  ���������������������������, heat and the weariness "of such a voy-  .'   age./-   . -..-        ,    .        ;" .   ,v  But, when she was alone with Steele  ���������������������������-. * in the evening, looking off at the moon-  '   lit sea, or in her own cabin,- her brow  would  furrow,   and   her  hands  wouid  "'-"' clench with the tensity of her anxiety.  And, when at last Puerto Frio showed  --���������������������������across -the purple water with a-glow  of  brief    sunset    behind    the  brown  -'' . shoulder" of. San>* Francisco,  she stood  by the rail, almost holding her breath  in suspense,  while the  anchor chains  ran out.    As soon  as Steele had en-  - "���������������������������   sconced   Mrs.   Horton   and " Duska   at  the Frances y Ingles, he hurried to the  American Legation for news of Saxon.  When he-left Duska in the hotel patio,  he knew,-.from the anxious little smile  she threw 'after him, that for her the  jury deciding the    supreme' question  was going.out,  leaving her-as a defendant  is   left  when  the  panel" files  into the room where they ballot on his  fate.    He rushed over to the legation  with sickening fear that, when he came  ==-^baekf^il^might-^haveHo-*-be=like--theijury-=  man whose verdict is adverse.  As it happened, he caught Mr. Pendleton without delay, and before he  had finished his question the envoy  was looking about for his Panama hat.  Mr. Pendleton wanted to do several  things at once. He wanted to tell the  story of Saxon's coming and going,  and hc wanted lo go in person, and  have   the   party   moved   over   to   the   legation, .where..^thoy must=:_be_ his.  guests while they remained in Puerto  Frio. It would be several days before  another steamer sailed north. They  had missed by a day the vessel on  which Saxon had gone. Meanwhile,  there were sights in the town that  might beguile the intervening time.  Saxon had interested the envoy, and  Saxon's friends were welcome. Hospitality is simplified in places where  faces from God's country are things to  greet with the fervor of delight.  At dinner that evening, sitting at the  right of the minister, Duska heard the  full narrative of Saxon's brief stay  and return home. Mr. Pendleton was  at his best. There was no diplomatic  formality, and the girl, under the reaction and relief of her dispelled anxiety, though still disappointed at the  hapless coincidence of missing Saxon,  was as gay and childlike as though  she had not just emerged, from an  overshadowing uncertainty.  "I'm sorry that he couldn't accept  my hospitality here at the legation,"  said the minister at the end of his  story, with much mock solemnity,  "but etiquette in diplomatic circles is  quite rigid, and he had an appointment to sleep at the palace."  "So, they jugged him!" chuckled  Steele, with a grin that threatened his  ears, "I always suspected he'd wind  up in the Bastile."  "He was," corrected the girl, ^ her  chin high, though her eyes sparkled,  "a guest of the President, and, as became his dignity, was supplied with a  military escort."  "He    needn't    permit    himself   any  ^vaunting pride about that," Steele assured her. "It's just difference of  method. In our country, a similar  honor would have been accorded with  a patrol wagon and a couple of policemen."  After dinner, Duska insisted on dispatching a cablegram which should intercept the City of Rio at some point  below the Isthmus. It was not an original telegram, but, had Saxon received  it, it would have delighted him immoderately. She said:  "I told you so. Sail by Orinoco."  The following morning, there were  tours of discovery, personally conducted by the young Mr. Partridge. Duska  had wanted to leave the carriage at  the old cathedral, and stand flat  against the blank wall, but she refrained, and satisfied herself with  marching up very close and regarding  it with hostility. As the carriage  turned into the main plaza, a regiment  of infantry went by, the band marching ahead playing,^ with the usual  blare, the national anthem. * Then, as  the coachman drew up his horses at  the legation door, there was-a sudden  confusion, followed by the*-noise of  popping guns. It was the hour just  preceding .the noon siesta. The pJaza  was indolent with lounging figures,  and droning in the sleeping sing-song  chorus of lazy voices. At the sound,  which for the moment impressed the  girl -ftike the exploding of a pack of  giant crackers, a sudden stillness fell  on the place, closely followed by a  startled outcry of voices as the figures  in the plaza broke wildly for cover,  futilely attempting' to shield their  faces with their arms against possible  bullets. ��������������������������� Then, there came a deeper  detonation, and somewhere the crumbling of an adobe wall. The first sound  came just as Mrs. Horton was" stepping to the sidewalk. 'Duska had already - leaped liglitly out, and stood  looking on in surprise. ,But Mr. Partridge knew his Puerto Frio. He led  them hastily through the huge, street-  doors, and they had no sooner passed  than the porter, with many' mumbled  prayers to the Holy Mother, slammed  the great barriers against the outside  world. The final assault- for Vegas y  .Libertad had at last begun.  Mr. Pendleton had insisted that the  ladies remain at the rear of the house,  but-Duska, with her adventurous passion for seeing all-there was. to see,  ..threatened insubordination. , .To her,  the idea-of leaving several perfectly  good-balconies'vacant," and staying-at  the back of. a. house," when'*the\only.  battle one - .would probably ever" see  was occurring in the street just outside, seemed far fromJ sensible. ^But,  after shehad looked out for a few. moments, had seen a belated fruit-vender  crumple to the street, and hadtsmelled  the acrid stench of the-burnt powder,  she was willing to turn away.    .   ',  Inasmuch as the stay of Duska and  her aunt involved several days of waiting, for the sailing of the next ship,"  Duska was somewhat surprised^ at  hearing nothing from Saxon in " the  meanwhile. He had had-time to reach  the point to which the cablegram was  addressed.. She had told-him sbs would  sail by the Orinoco, since that was the  first available steamer. . At such a  time, Saxon would certainly- answer  that message. She fancied he would  even manage to join her steamer, either  by coming down to meet iti or waiting  to-intercept it at the place where he  had received her message. Consequently, when she reached that port and  sailed again without either seeing  Saxon or a receiving a message from  him, she was decidedly surprised, and,  though==she=did=-not-=admit=-it-=even=-to-  herself, she was likewise alarmed.  It happened that one of her fellow  passengers on the steamer Orinoco  was a tall, grave gentleman, who wore  his beard trimmed in the French fashion, and who in his bearing had a certain-air of  distinction.  On a coast vessel, it was unusual for  a passenger to hold himself apart and  reserved against the chance companionships of a voyage.._.Yet, .this, gentle^  man did so. He had been introduced  by the captain as M. Herve, had bowod  and smiled, but since that he had not  sought to further the acquaintanceship  or lo recognize it except by a polilc  bow or smile when he passed one of the  party on his solitary deck promenades.  Possibly, this perfunctory greeting  would have boon the limit and confine  of their associations, had he not chanced to bo standing one day near enough  to Duska and Steele to overhear their  conversation. The voyage was almost  ended, and New York was not far off.  Long ago, the lush rankness of the  tropics had given wray to the. more  temperate beauty of the higher zone,  and this beauty was the beauty of early  autumn.  Steele was talking of Frederick Marston, and the girl was listening with  interest. As long as Saxon insisted on  remaining the first disciple, she must  of course be interested in his demi-god.  Just now, however, Saxon's name was  not mentioned. Finally, the stranger  turned, and come over with a smile.  ''When I hear the name of Frederick  Marston," he said, "I am challenged to  interest. Would I be asking too much  if I sought to join you in your talk of  him?"  The girl looked up and welcomed him  with her i.; accustomed graciousness,  while Steele drew up a camp-stool, and  the Frenchman seated himself.  For a while, he listened sitting there,  his fingers clasped about his somewhat  stout knee, and his face gravely speculative, contributing to the conversation  nothing except his attention.  "You  see,  I am  interested  in  Mar-   For a year they laughed, then they be- I    It is probable that the original vege-  *m," he at length began. came  a  trifle   uneasy.    Finally,   how-   tation of the world's first days of ver-  ston,  ,The girl hesitated. She had just  been expressing the opinion, possibly  absorbed from Saxon, that the personality of the artist was extremely disagreeable. As she glanced at M. Herve,  the thought flashed through her mind  that this might possibly be Marston  himself. She knew that master's fondness for the incognito. But she dismissed the idea as highly fanciful, and  even ventured frankly to repeat her  criticism.  At last, Herve replied, with great  gravity:  "Mademoiselle, I had the honor to  know the great Frederick Marston  once, lt was some years ago. I-Ie keeps  keeps himself much as a hermit might  In these days, but I am sure that the  portion of the story I know is not that  of the vain man or of the poseur.  Possibly," he hesitated modestly, "it  might interest mademoiselle?"  "I'm sure of it," declared the girl.  "Marston," he began, "drifted into  the Paris ateliers from your country,  callow, morbid, painfully young and  totally inexperienced. He was a'tall,  gaunt boy with a beard ��������������������������� that grew  hardly as fast as his career, though  finally .It covered his face. Books and  pictures he knew with passionate love.  With life, he was unacquainted; at  men, he looked distantly over the deep  chasm of his bashfulness. Women he  feared, and of them he knew no more  than he knew of dragons.  "He was eighteen then. He was in  the Salon at twenty-two, and at the  height of fame at twenty-six.- He is  now only thirty-three. What he will  be at forty, one can not surmise."  The Frenchman gazed for a moment  at the spiraling smoke from his cigarette, and halted with the uncertainty  of a bard who doubts his ability to do  justice to his lay.  "I find the story diflicult." He smiled  with some diffidence, then continued:  "Had I the art to tell it, it would be  pathos. Marston /was a generous fellow, beloved by those who knew him,  but quarantined by his morbid reserve  from wide acquaintanceship. Temperament���������������������������ah, that is.-a wonderful thing!  It is to a' man what clouds and mists  are to a land!

The masters, knew that  before they had criticized him six  months. In a" year, they'stood abashed  before him." -- -  "Go on, please!" prompted Duska, in  a soft voice of sympathetic interest.  ."He dreaded- - notoriety," he 'feared  fame. " He never had- a" - photograph  taken,, and, -when it;"was'his turn-to.  pose in the ��������������������������� sketch ��������������������������� classes, where the  students "alternate-as models for their  fellows,'- his" nervousness . was "actual  suffering. ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� To be looked at--meantjr-for  him, to drop his eyes and find his hands  inv his way���������������������������the hands'-that could paint  the finest pictures in Europe!

To most men"who can  command fame, tho plaudits of clapping, hands are as ��������������������������� the incense of  triumph. To him, there was but the  art itself���������������������������the praise meant only" embarrassment.1 - His ideal was that of  the English poet���������������������������-a.land: ��������������������������� , .'-'"  ��������������������������� 'Where no one shall work formoney  -     And-.no one shall, work for fame���������������������������  With none but the master to "praise  him    "��������������������������� .    ~  And none but the master to blame.'  That was what he wished, and could  not have in Paris..  "It was in painting only that-he forgot himself, and became a disembodied  magic behind a brush. When a picture  called down unusual . comment from  critics and press, he would disappear  ���������������������������remain out of sight for months. No  one, knew where he went. Once, I remember, in my time, he stayed away  ever, these fears abated. St. John, his  father-in-law, admitted that he was  in constant correspondence with the  master, and knew where he was in  hiding. He refused to divulge his  secret of place. He said that Marston  exacted his promise���������������������������that he wanted to  hide. Then came new pictures, which  St. John handled as his son-in-law's  agent. Paris delighted in them. Marston travels about now, and paints.  Whether he is mildly mad, or only as  mal as his exaggerated genius makes  him, I have often wondered."  To be Continued.  FREDDY AND THE TYPIST  It sometimes happens that an employer brings his two-year-old Freddy  to the oflice, while his wife searches  tl e length, breadth, height and depth  of the city for lace, curtains or a sideboard for her husband's birthday surprise.  The stenographer must not lose this  grand and glorious opportunity. She  must immediately stop her work and  go into thrills of rapture over Freddy's  curly hair, intellectual forehead, deep,  searching eyes, peachy cheeks,..sensitive mouth, dear little ears," pear/y  teeth, firm and determined chin and  never, never overlook calling attention' to the evident and faithful resemblance he bears to his handsome  father.  If Freddy shows a desire to examine  her bracelet at close range she shall  hand it over at once. If he wishes to  see the workings of her revolving  chair she shall arise promptly and  make the desired explanation with a  smiling face. If he manifests a desire  to try her new fountain pen, her wellT  sharpened pencils, or any of the other  articles in her tool kit, she shall give  them up pleasantly, counting her loss  Freddy's gain.  Yes, if she has a good, strong constitution and - steady, - well-behaved  nerves, it will be a splendid and telling stroke of diplomacy to lift the little  rascal up on her chair, and let him  loose on her typewriter.  While all this devastation is taking  place the-proud father has ^heard-the  excited ejaculations of delight and the  squeals, of rapture bursting ever and  an<-n from little Freddy's red lips.  When, .with one fell swoop, the,.little  tow-headed imp, .with -both hands  comes down solidly on the whole keyboard at.once, she hears a loud guffaw  from the' delighted father;���������������������������then is the  time for action.

"almost a yearf  "He knew 'one woman in Paris, besides the models, who were to him impersonal things. Of lhat one" woman  alone, he was not afraid. She was a  pathetic sort of a girl. I-Ier large eyes  followed him with adoring hero-worship. She was the daughter of an  English painter who could not paint,  one Alfred St. John, who lodged in the  rear of tho floor above.' She herself  .was.a poet-who .could noL-wrile-verso.  To her, he talked without bashfulness,  and for hor he felt vast sorrow. Love!  Monc'Jiou, no! If ho had loved her, he  would have fled from her in terror!  "But she loved him. Then, ho fell  ill. Typhoid il was, and for weeks he  was in his bed, with the papers crying  out each day what a disaster threatened France and the world, if hc should,  die. And sho nursed him, denying herself rest. Typhoid may be helped by  a physician, hut thc patient owes his  life to the nurse. When he recovered,  his one obsessing thought was that his  life really belonged to her rather than  to himself. I havo already said he was  morbid half to the point of madness.  Genius is sometimes so!  "By no means a constant absintheur,  in his moods he liked to watch the  opalescent gleams that flash in a glass  of Pernod. One night, when he had  token more, perhaps, than was his custom, he returned to his lodgings, resolved to pay the debt, with an offer  of marriage.  "I do not know how much was the  morbidness of his own temperament,  and how much was the absinthe. I  know that after that it was all wormwood for them both.  "She was proud. She soon divined  tlfat he had asked her solely out of  sympathy, and perhaps it was at her  urging that he left Paris alone.- ' Perhaps, it was because his fame was becoming too great to allow his remaining there longer a recluse. At all  events, he went away without warning  ���������������������������fled precipitantly. No ono was astonished.    His friends   only   laughed.  PLANTS OR  ANIMALS?  Was the. cell, which -was the origin  of organic*, life on earth,' vegetable or  animal?. Haeckel and- his followers  hold that it was vegetable and that the  cells of'animal nature sprang from the  vegetable cells, which were the. first  cells formed. In tracing the grades in  the scale of beings it is not possible  to define clearly -.the-, point where..one  nature branched - off from the other.  The scientist has tried in vain to classify, the good and the evil and to do  his work without invading the field  of=metaphysicsf==-The=animal=andivege-  table kingdoms are represented as two  trees whose' roots cling together and  intermingle and whose summits" are  widely separated.  Among the organic refuse cast up  by the tides quantities of coraline and  vegetable matters aro found. Among  them there are very fine seaweeds  covered with rose and white calcareous  armor; some scientists have ranked  them among seaweeds; -others have  classified "tlfem"~as~polyps.- There" is "a  pretty little water plant, the "marsl-  lia," which closely resembles a grub  and sometimes rises on its littlo feet  as if to satisfy somo occult impulse.  Thero are plants with systems com:  parable to tho arterial system of the  human being. A fragment of the sar-  gassum recalls to mind the ramifica-  .lions of tho human arteries. Tho sar-  gassum is but ono of many peculiar  algae, of which there aro at least fifteen thousand existing species, but it  is the most voluminous member of the  family. One of its plants attains a  length of three hundred motors. These  weeds are the giants of the vegetable  world. In the same family there arc  dwarfs so small that they can be seen  only with the microscope. The bacteria  of typhoid fever, diphtheria, tetanus,  cholera, the plague, and other diseases  are of the algae family. While thoy  are all of the vegetable world, they are  more dangerous than wolves.  Mosses and lichens are formed- by  the indissoluble association of a mushroom and an alga. Lichens cover  the arid ground, the rocks, trees, and  walls; they are gray, yellow, and very  often a vivid green.  It is supposed that the "manna" described in Biblical history as "a small  white thing like hoar frost," which  was seen on tho ground when the dew  disappeared, was a lichen of the sort  common in Europe and is the only  n urishment of the reindeer of Lapland. It has been said that were Lapland to be deprived of 'the reindeer  lichen the country would become a  desert.  dure sprang from the deposits of the  lichens.^ Only a few spores of mushrooms and of algae were needed to  start plant production'in all parts of  the globe. The little whitish lichen  called the "edible parmelia" is carried  all over Asia by the winds and deposited in masses in the Crimea, where  the people eat it and feed it to their  goats. The debris of the lichens accumulates and prepares the layer of  humus soil in which other plants can  live. Irish lichen, or moss, is one of  the benefieient growths of earth. Many  mosses have a commercial value; they  may choke the growth of the springing plant, but they serve as filling for  the mattresses of the poor, they are  used for brooms and brushes, and as  they are bad conductors of heat, they  arc valued as Ailing for the sides of  ice-boxes. Like lichens, moss forms  soil, or, humus, on the arid ground and  makes a bed where other plants may  grow. It moderates the floods of - the  mountain rivers, because its roots are  thirsty drinkers, while in the forest  it is a feeder of the streams.  The microscope reveals the beautiful  tissue of the leaves of,the mosses, and'  the   peculiarly  minute  care  taken  by  nature to preserve them from the extremes of heat and cold.   ,Moss plants  are shaped like vases;  they are often  of elegant and graceful forms.    Some  of them  have rows of cells;. one  laid  above the other, and closed by double  ranks "of teeth,  the  outer  side  shelllike ��������������������������� and   colored  and   the- inner  side,  diaphaneous" and   supple.   . The   ranks  of the teeth are set in  groups which  vary in number as the species vary;-  but  the ��������������������������� groups   in  a , species   always"  contain   the 'same   number' of   teeth.'  The teeth  vary  in number from four  to   sixty-four.    In .some  species  they  (the teeth)  are clamped over a,mem-;  brane  to   form * a   drum   hermetically-  closed .by i a. cover   rounded - like'  a'  beadle's'cap.   The1 cap is.covered with '  a smooth coif trimmed with long yel-  low  hairs.    When ' the  plant-reaches-  maturity" the  cap  falls voff,  the .teeth,:  open and close with rhythmic motion,  and the spores issue from the heart of  the plant, to be carried by "the -winds,;*',  as.they hay.e'.been carried since'first.;  the'lichen, worked  for  tlie" formation^  of   the' verdure" of   the "earth." ;  The,,  movements of mosses and lichens are '  so like the actions'.of men. that: scien---]  tists have found' reasons, for. attribut'r*\  ing their acrobatic work to. an' animal  >  origin;'",'.   ^-K -   .'.<',   -" -~ " 7- f ��������������������������� ~ _. ,-,  f  fiyii/i^:  ������������������-.':i'-*T.I  V- '- ~ .3  -y.ym  ii .r.   n  ..!;-{<l  .CHICAGO'S WONIAN^ ENGINEER.-,:' "(7-C- 'X  Chicago has -the, distinction of'"fur-" }'. .; y;"-^  nishirig the.first woman recruit to the->vf / -i-M!  ranks.of the civil,and consulting, engi7''v fz/z'yJZ'  heers,-". says^ a, writer in ��������������������������� the," Technical z-/.i_^jyy^%  World ^Magazine.--.

She considers  it the most natural thing in-the world  that, being familiar with her husband's  work, she should have stepped In and  assumed the mantle of his professional  duties. She earnestly advocates every  woman interesting herself in her husband's profession and associating herself wilh him in his business, since It  not, niy draws them closer together  but has tho practical value of making  a woman Independent and fortifying '  her against emergency. She considers  that civil engineering offers splendid  opportunities to women who have inclinations in that direction. In her  opinion there is no feature of the work  that is outside of a woman's element,  and put into actual practice she finds  it extremely fascinating.  '���������������������������*"-  GERMAN   TELEPHONE   SERVICE  Telephone lines in Germany are  owned and operated by the German  government. The telephone service  belongs to the post oflice, and the telephone lines are operated by the imperial postal authorities, except in  Bavaria and Wurtemberg, which have  maintained their separate postal service. The total number of subscribers  in the German empire, including Bavaria and Wurtemberg, it is stated in  the recent report, was 591,973 in 1905  and 1,040,849 in 1910.
