Charles A. Wallace Buys a
Ranch and Much City
The Montgomery ranch, owned
by W, J. Montgomery and others,
wsa sold this week to Charles A.
Wallace, of Calgiry. Tbe property
is located a short distance east of
our oi y, and ia considered one of
best farms in the valley. It consists
of 77 acrea, snd tbe price paid was
• 135 pt-r acre. Mr Wal'aoe will
move fro ii Calgary to Oraiul Porks,
and Mr Montgomery intends to remove to one of tbe prairie provinces.
Mr. Wallace has also purchased
between thirty and forty lots from
tbe Townsite company near the
Central school. The prices of the>e
lots range from $200 to £300 It is
Mr. Wallace's intention to erect a
$2000 residence on eacb of tbese
lots for renting purposes. Work

Tribulations of a Teacher
A duple of weeks ago the department of education at Victoria sent a
young Nova Scotia lady teacher to
thia city to take charge of the Hilltop
a ihool When ahe arrived here she
could Add no one among a whole city
full of people who could tell her where
the Hilltop sohool* is located. After
a week spent here, during which time
a lively correspondence, both through
his majesty'i mail and by tbe numerous lines of telegraph wires, waa kept
up with the superintendent of education, she learned that Hilltop was
>oiiewhere in the vicinity of Fife, and
left for that place. The people of
Fife appeared to be nearly as ignorant regarding Hilltop aa the people
nf Orand Foi ks, but finally she found
a man who aaid he had heard tbe
name mentioned once or twice. A
further search, and she was rewarded
by encountering a person who admitted that he was quite conversant with
the actual location of Hilltop. It was
six miles from Fife, nearly straight
up in the air, being situated on the
highest 'eminence in the neighborhood. She would have to employ a
guide to take her there, as the road
waa not very well defined She finally
secured a guide and a team to haul
her trunk to Hilltop. On her arrival
at the school house, she discovered
that it was a little log hut affair, un-
plaatered on the inside, thus giving
the wind an unlimited opportunity to
play with the golden locks ot the
teacher and the pupils But even
with the disadvantage of having ohm's
tresses familiarly toyed with hy. the
mountain zephyrs, the plac. possessed
one redeeming feature. The school
house was perched on the loftiest peak
within a radius nf a hundred miles,
and the vieat was •opteinely grand.

triot consisted of six- families, all
foreigners. None spoke English, and
as the superintendent of education
had not furnished her with an inter

in a strange land as if she had been
in Turkey. A meeting of the school

herself with tlie nature  of the pro

The report recently Issued by the'
Chief Conservator of Forests in South
Africa for the year ending on December 81st, 1»11, Is of considerable Interest by way of comparison with
what Is being done along forestry
lines in this country. For such a
young Union the progress made ls remarkable, and considerable credit is
due to tho Forest Department for the
efllclency already altalned in administration   and   flre-prutectlpn.
The area of tlie Forest Reserves in
the Union or South Africa In December, 11)11, was 1,71)9,550 acres. Besides this, there were also 42,687
acres reserve-*] for growing railway
ties, on which railway funds alone
were expended, making u total reserved area of 1,842,1*17 acres. ThiB
area Is divided Into seven conserv-
iiiieirs—roughly speaking, a cerserv-
anoy to each province In the Union.
Each conservancy, co.l_lll.tlnf. usually
of several reserves, is administered
by n District. Forest Officer and a
technically trained Assistant. Forester, tinder ibem are chiefs of reserves, forest guards, rangers, etc.
The more important positions are all
tilled by technical foresters, usually
h's'ilv trained men who have com-
pleted their course in the Oxford
school of Forestry and in Germany.
Tills organization very closely resembles that of the Canadian Government forest reserves.
Under their snpervisidn, forest surveys are being made for the demarcation of new reserves, and existing reserves are being protected from Are
by burning or cutting lire-belts around
the reserves a..d by planting up their
perimeters with trees of the less in-
llammable species. As a result of
these precautions, there were (turned
during the season of mil only seven
hundred acres or 0.04 per cent, of
the total area.
On the reserves themselves Improvement cuttings are being carried
on under tlle direction of forest officials, for lhe removal of defective timber and weed trees, and these operations not only have much Improved
the species composition ot the forests
but have proved financially justifiable
as well.
Replanting Is also being extensively
carried on In the various Reserves,
Ihe total nrea replanted at the end of
1011 being 48,136 acres. Several
species-of exotics are being introduced witl. considerable success.
Nurseries are maintained and the
seed and transplants of forest trees
are sold to the public at cost. About
sis thousand dollars worth of seed
was sold by the Department during
ihe year, together with 2,806,402 seedlings, valued at over -(42,600.00.

must be stated that the magnificent
piairtes are Inhabited In large measure by people who are very materialistic in their tastes and thinking. In
the hurry and excitement of making
good on the homestead, the finer sensibilities are frequently dulled, and
many forget that worthy citizenship
Is not simply a matter of making a
living, but of living a life. We need
more frequently to be reminded that
man <loe3 not live by bread alone—
that we have other needs than the
mere vulgar necessity of three meals
a day, and a place to sleep at night.
The farmer and his wife who decide
that so far as their house Is concerned the esthetic, the beautiful, the love
of (ruth and goodness, the pleasure of
pure and Innocent fun. the comrade:,
ship of worthy books, the, gladness of
music, ihe mlnth of laughter the mysterious awe which comes over (hose
who take lime to pry Into Nature's
wonderland-»-we say that the farmer
and his wife who decide that these
things are legitimate and desirable—
that tihey are worth taking time for
—such persons as these make no mistake.
There ore many farm homes In
which far too great a premium is put
upon that duality of character which
Is misnamed industry. The father
takes pride in the fact thut his boys
are everlastingly on the grindstone
from dawn to dusk- and tbat they
have no time for gadding. He prides
himself that they aie hard workers.
And, yet his sons are mere drudges.
They may hold the record for a big
day's stooklng but they know nothing
about books or flowers or the relaxation nr an idle day with a fishing
rod. They pass by, unnoticed, the
sunlit ripples and the cool, deep shadows of the farm brook; they never
look up to behold the glory of the
nineet; they know not the cunning
ways of tlle bee, nor the wonderful
world of plant life about their feet;
they are just common drudges, work-
ins ah lay long In God'B wonderful
laboratory, but with eyes that are
holden that tley may not see.
Wc make ro plea for mere Idling,
lure ii.doli-r.e-(i Is always a crime..
And fretiuently It leads to other
crimes worse even than Itself. But
there Is no Indolence ln an hour now
and then with the children In gathering, naming and admiring the prairie
flowers: In an effort to surround the
other things ot beauty; and In a word
to live in companionship with the
farm, regarding It not merely for Its
mercenary value, but also for IU delightful associations and constant
round ot Interest and of surprise.
There are some families who really
own their farm aud enjoy it; but there
are other families who think they own
a farm, but who in reality are owned
by It, and have become Its slave.—

Dr. William.' Pink Pills Rebuild
Shattered Nerves
Good blood—rich, red blood—makes
all the difference between health and
sickness. If the blood Is thin and
watery, the health of the whole bod/
suffers. The sufferer becomes nervous anC irritable; the stomach fall;
In strength and the appetite becomes
poor. Food does not give the necessary nourishment, and the first feeling of weakncEs passes, as time goes
oh, Into a general breakdown In the
health. The case of Mrs. Angell-
qr.e Qagnon, of St. Jerome, Que.,
Illustrates the truth of these statements. Mrs. Qagnon says: "I am
flfty years of age and up to a few
months ago always enjoyed the best
of health. Th.n I began to feel rundown and weak, without patience or
ambition. My appetite grew poor,
and my nerves seemed to be on edge,
and the least noise or worry would
make in; Irr'l.-ble and nervous. Lite
became nil i ct**al burden and I could
no longer look after my houaehold
duties. My doctor prescribed and ordered a change, saying that I was a
nervous wreck. I tried to become
interested ln other thinga but failed,
and my condition was really deplorable. I continued In this condition
for several months, gradually going
down, and as my doctor was not helping me I was easily persuaded by a
friend to try Dr. Wllliains* Pink Pills.
After taking the pills for a few weeks
I could see an Improvement, and I
gladly continued using them for a
couple of montha, when I found my
health fully restored. I am more
than thankful for what Dr. Williams'
Pink PIUs have done for me, and I
gladly recommend them to all who
are weak, nervous and run down."

A new electric tanning process, invented by the Swedish scientist, Dr.

method, the hides are put In special

as to carry out an electrolytic action,
and this will tan the hides In much
less time than usual, for Instance,
six weeks as compared to several
months. Leather of better quality
Is produced In this way, and the method gives a perfect and solid tanning.

Taots of Great Structures Across the
Tay and Forth
.**Jot tiie least of the extraordinary
•ears of the redoubtable bridge-bulld-
sr, -.Sir William Arrol, was the fact
that at one time he carried on two
auch gigantic contracts as tbe Tay
ind. Forth Bridges. It was a striking
tribute to his great powers ot organl-
tatlon and to his genius for engineering, on a mammoth scale. The construction of the Tay Bridge was only
ialt-flnlshed when lie made a start
with the gigantic undertaking which
aow spans the Firth of Forth, from
lhe* designs ot Sir John Fowler and
Sir;Benjamin Baker. Over a year
. was spent In the preliminary preparations alone—the designing and making, of Bpeclal plant, the erection - f
workshops on shore and the thousands
and one things essential to the success
at auch a large scheme.. Tbe cost of
temporary plant ran to hal.-a-mill.on
sterling, and Included thirty sleam
a.id other barges, tugs, launches anl
boats, sixty steam cranes and winches,
fifty hydraulic cranes, forty-eight
steam engines acl hydraulic Jacks,
hand-cranes and drlllii... machines almost Innumerable; not to
mentloi. oue million cubic feet ot timber and sixty miles of wire. The
enormous nature of this engineering
wonder of tbe world may be gathered
from the following figures: The total
length Is over a mile and a half, and
consists ot two spans, each nearly a
third of a l.iile long; two spans ot six
hundred and seventy-five feet each. In
the piers there are about one hundred
and tweity thousand cubic yards of
masonry, and In the super-structure
over forty thousand tons ot steel and
aome fifteen thousand tons ot Iron.
The building of the Tay Bridge was
an-opportunity for a display of hla
engineering genius which the ambit-
iotts brldgenibker eagerly welcomed.
A rigorous examination revealed the
old foundations to be insecure, and lt
was decided to build an entirely new
bridge a short distance farther up the
river-. Within five years from Its
oommencemeiit—1882 to 1887—a remarkable erection, over two miles ln
length, and constructed at a cost of
seven hundred and flfty thousand
pounds, spanned Ilie estuary, a structure strong enough to defy the fiercest
gale that ever blew, - It was tho
greatest engineering triumph of tha
age. until It was eclipsed by a great-
en—the Forth Bridge.
Dining on Books
With the exception of minerals lt
ls difficult for one to find on the
earth's surface substances that do
not tempt the appetite of some sort
of animal. The list ot queer articles
ot diet includes the earth, which Is

clay eater, and the walrus hide, which

In 1370 Barnado de Vlscontl compelled two Papal delegates to eat the

W. N. U. Mt
Saskatchewan Lady Adda Her Testimony to What Haa Already Been
Said of the Great Work Dodd's Kidney Pills are Doing.
Caeaarvllle, Sask.    (Special)—Tho
scarcity ot female help In a new country subjects the women of the prairies to unusual Btrain, and careful observation has established the fact that
this stialn first mak . Itself felt ln
the kidneys.   For this reastn Dodd's
Kidney PIUs -re making an enviable
reputation from the Great Lakes to
the foothills of the Rockies.
Everywhere you will find women
singing the praises ot the great Can
adlan kidney remedy that has ban
lshed their patna and weariness, and
brought them back to health. Among
the many la Mra. Edgar Cowen, an
estimable lady of this place.
"I have found Dodd's Kidney Pilla
very beneficial," Mrs. Cowen stales.
"If anything I can say will help any
sufferer I am glad to add my testimonial to wbat has already been said."
The kidneys strain all the refuse
material out of the blood. It they
are out of order this refuse remains ln
the blood, and becomes poison. That's
why sound kidneys mean pure blood
and good health. Dodd'e Kidney
Pills make sound kidneys.
Quotations That ara Wrong
. Some of the most frequently uaed
quotatlona are not quotations at all,
but ln many cases convey tbe opposite meaning of the original wording.
Fenimore Cooper, for Instance,
thought he was quoting from the .Bible when he spoke of an Inscription
being bo devised that he who runs
may read, signifying that lt was easier to run than read.
lf Cooper had looked In his Bible
he would have found ln the book ot
Ilabakuk that the passage he tried
to quote was: Write the vision and
make It plain tbat he may run that
readeth It. The vision waa a warning : nd the reader was to flee from
danger, but the Cooper version hae
survived Ihe original and practically
put It out or use.
A popular chronic misquotation Ib
that of the passage In lludlbras
which says; He that compiles ngalnst
his will ls or the Bame opinion still.
Authors and public speakers wltboul
number have twisted that Into: A man
convinced against his will Is of tho
Bame opinion atlll, forgettlug that a
man who waa convinced could not
possibly remain ot the same opinion
for If he was ot thc time opinion he
would not be convinced.
Theodore ltoosevelt publicly declared ihat Washington in his farewell address aaid: To be prepared for war
Is the moat effective means to promote
peace. But the flrst President said
nothing ot the sort In his farewell
address. In his flrst message to Congress he Bald: To be prepared for war
Is one of the most effective means ot
preserving peace, and be spoke ot oth-
tr means aa well.
Novelists do not seem to be very
strong ln their knowledge ot the
ScrlptureB «omehow, and Sir Walter
Scott, In 'The Heart ot Midlothian,'
attempts to point a moral with the
words: Our almple and unpretending
heroine had the merit ot those peacemakers to whom It Is promised as a
benediction that they ahall Inherit the
earth. The fact Is that the peacemakers did not receive any auch promise, but It Is said that the meek
ahall Inherit the earth.

Light Thrown on  Forest and Trade
Conditions  by  New Government
Over 1200 wood-using Industries in
Ontario contributed the data for a bulletin on this Industry now being issued by the Forestry Branch, Ottawa.
Thirty four different kinds ot wood
are being UBed by those Industries
and the detailed Information regarding the various uses to which such
woods are put,- should be of considerable value not only to the manufacturer by showing new means of waste
disposal, but also to the house holder
by Indicating what native woods are
best fitted to replace the more expensive Imported stock, for interior decoration, furniture and flooring.
The bulletin also shows Incidentally the increasing poverty ot Ontario
with regard to the more valuable work
woods. Almost halt ot the thirty-
four kinds of wood used are obtained
principally from outside sources and
three and one half million dollars are
annually sent out of the province for
Imported wood stock. The imported
oak alone costs one million six hundred thousand dollars annually, for
this tree has become commercially
extinct ln Ontario while the hickory
and ohestnut groves ot southern Ontario have also, almost entirely disappeared. Even good clear white
pine Is becoming hard to obtain and
Its market value Is steadily rising for
It represents twenty one per cent
ot the total wood consumption in Ontario for industrial purposes.
Ot more Interest to the small consumer of wood-products are the side
lights the bulletin throws on the possibility ot substituting cheap home
grown woods for the expensive foreign species now used so extensively.
Recent tests mado of their physical
properties have demonstrated the suitability for certain purposes of many
native species, hitherto despised by
the dealers. For hardwood flooring
lu plac.' ot the oak and maple now
in general use, may be substituted the
home grown birch and beech which
take a high polish and have the advantage et being considerably cheaper. Likewise for Interior finishing,
the expensive oak can be very closely
Imitated by stained black ash and
stained birch ls aimoat Indistinguishable from mahogany, while stained
red gum requires an expert to distinguish lt from the costly Circassian
waluut. The now expensive white
pine Is being replaced, where durability la not a requisite, by the cheaper
spruce, basswood and elm. Poplar
and balsam flr are two of tbe most
common trees ln Ontario and that
tbey bave wider uses Is evident from
the fact that poplar ls highly valued
tor b-.rdwood flooring ln Manitoba
while balsam flr Is perhaps tbe most
widely used native species dn the
Maritime provinces.
The bulletin also Indicates the existence of a market ln Ontario for
sumcc, apple and cherry logs. Tke
lumber cut from tliem being worth
$30, $46.50, a.id $44.SO per thousand
feet board measure respectively. The
Forestry Branch has already been Instrumental ln securing Bales ot the
wood of worn out apple orcharda and
Is desirous of further serving the public along these lines. The bulletin
on Thc Wood-using Industries of Ontario can be had gratia from the Forestry Branch, Department of the Interior, Ottawa. A similar report
dealing wilh the Maritime Provinces
will appear shortly.

A Common Failing
There was a man
Of history Bad
Whose every plan
Went to the bad.
He did not drink,
He did not swear
Nor slyly wink
At sirens fair.
His ideals high
He would reveal,    .
He could notjie,
He could not steal.
His worth you'd vow
Was something strong,
And yet, somehow,
His luck *ent wrong.
Tbe hoped for bliss
He'd never clutch.
His fault was this:
He talked too much.

Too Much Argument
The surest wav to avoid trouble in
the mining camps of the west is to
avoid controversy. How carefully
some men follow that rule is illustrated by au amusing story.
A man who had come to a Nevada
mining camp met an interesting young
westerner, and proposed that they
camp together. After they had unpacked their things und eaten their
supper, they sat down to talk.
"Fine night," observed the new.
"Looks like rain," remarked the
"Oh, no, Idui't think so."
Without saying anything more, the
young westerner, to his companion's
astonishment, got up and began to
pack his kit
"What's the matter!" asked the
newcomer, in surprise
"Oh, I guess I'd better move on."
"Hut why?"
"Ton much argument."

Money Spent In Attending Fair* la
Well Inveated
Fair time la again upon us. It ls
the annual holiday handed down by
our forefathers who tilled the soil and
gathered to discover which had been
able to wrest the fairest fruits from
their labor. It ls a time of healthy
competition and relaxation that every
member of the family should be allowed to enjoy. Both farmers and
city cousins should attend. Evan tbe
most Insulated city dweller ls but a
generation or so away from toil tilling as men all tilled the soil or "grazed
their herds at one time. Those who
can have gotten back to the soil after
drifting luto the unnatural hothouse
city life. Thero is something for
everybody at the fair, whethtr lt be
merely a country pumpkin show or
the more enlarged and classified exhibition and ourself, especially It you
take an active part In entering your
best farm produce or help ln managing or superintending lt. The local
fair, like the country newspaper, the
country schoolhouse and the country
church, ls a success or failure just
to that extent that home folk:, take'
active part. Its power for good ls
also much greater than ordinarily
conceded. Many a big breeder of
purebred live stock got his Inspiration
from the local two-by-twice country
fair when his cow, pig or colt won
th. i-ed.rlbboa from the neighbors.
That victory or defeat may have
aroused friendly competition which
started one of more plain farmers to
breeding pure bveds to Bhow neighbors Jones and Smith that they could
not beat the products ot the rival
neighbor's farm. Attend at least two
fairs the coming season—the home
pumpMn affair, If you wish to so designate it, and the big fair that will
be advertised an£ talked about ln your
section. See what your neighbors
are doing and then see what the best
herds, flocks and fields In the Dominion are doing.—Exchange.

Grant's Joke at Vlcksburg
Fifty years ago, when Grant was be-

had claimed that he would be in possession of the city on the Fourth of
The editor gayly reminded the Union
commander of the old recipe for cooking rabbits, beginning: First, catch

Vlcksburg was surrendered to Crant

to print a second edition of tho Confederate newspaper, with this note

Path of tha Sun
The sun's path Is called the ecliptic.
It Is a great clrcl*. of the celestial
sphere, cutting the celestial equator
at two points 180 degrees apart and
making with lt an angle >.f 23H degrees known as the obliquity of the
ecliptic. The crossing points are
called the equinoxes, because tbe days
and nights are then equal, and the
points midway between the equinoxes
are the solstices, because the sun then
seems to stall still for a few days.
Thc ecliptic ls so called becauBO
eclipses occur only when the moon Is
crossing it or is near It. for tha
moon's irblt cuts the ecliptic ln two
points, called nodes or knots, and at
other times Is above or below lt. lf
th* moon when ln cither node, is In
line with the sun and the earth wc
have an eclipse, either total or annular.. If sho 1 near her node we have
a ,-artlal eclipse.
The moon's nodes are not stationary, but move backward on the moon's
orbit, completing a revolution ln
about nineteen years, when the eclipses of the period recur In the same
order and at about tho same Intervals,
as before. This period ot eighteen
years and eleven days Is called the
saros. It was known to the Chaldeans and the Greeks and gave them
their data tor computing eclipses.
Any Intelligent person can trace the

Th* Kal.er's Son Startled Berlin With
HI* Book
Something Ilk* a sensation wa*
caused ln Berlin by the publication
by the German Crown Prince of a
book called 'Germany In Arms.' The
book, which Is most reverently dedicated to tha German Enperor and the
Prussian King, contains the following
motto: The world does not rest more
safely on the shoulders of Atlas than
does Germany on her army and navy.
The Imperial editor asserts that
Germany, mors tban any oth-r land,
has to trust to Its armaments, and
that as Its geographical position ts
unfavorable, and as all nations do not
regard Germany with affection, the
country has the sacred duty Imposed
on It always to maintain Its army and
navy ln a state of readiness. Only
in this way, relying on our good sword
can we maintain that place ln the sun
which Is ours, but which will not be
voluntarily conceded to us.
The Crown Prince goes on to say
that diplomacy may delay the conflict
for a season, but those In responsible
positions mutt know that once a gigantic conflagration ls lighted lt Ib not
so easy to extinguish.
Speaking of the delight of riding
to an attack, the Prince says there
is one delight still greater—namely,
that of meeting the enemy at the end
of the gallop and the fight for life and

Paris Police Use Hand Car.non
The Paris police department ls
equipped with what is considered an
effective weapon for uso ln dislodging criminals who barricaded themselves ln houses and defy capture,
which ls a habit the Paris Apaches
have developed quite extensively. The
weapon ls a hand eaniiu.., designed
particularly for throwlnj bombs,
which when they explode will fill a
building or room with suffocating gases sufficiently powerful to overcome
the occupants. The cannon, which
la used behind a portable shield,
which completely protects the user
from bullets, looks Uke a piece of Iron
pipe, and may be carried tn the hands
or slung over the shoulder like a rifle.
It can also be used as a Are extinguisher, for throwing life lines Into
the upper windows of burning buildings, forcing doors open by hurling
heavy projectiles anl throwing grenades ln war time.

The Speed of Light
The first astronomer to satisfactorily demonstrate the speed of light
was Ole Roemor, a Scandinavian scientist, who read his Immortal paper
on this subject before the Academy at
Paris 238 years ago. Roemer's calculations and conclusions have stood
the test ot time and subsequent Investigation!! on all important points.
Knowledge as to the velocity of light
was of tremendous Importance to astronomical science, since It enabled
astronomers to accurately estimate
the enormous distances with which
their science deals. Roemer found
that light travelled at the rate of
186,000 miles tn a second. The sun,
being distant from the earth 92,000,000
miles, flashes light to us ln eight minutes and fourteen seconds. Yet the
sun ls a near neighbour compared with
the so-called fixed stars which ln reality move with Inconceivable velocity,
although the most powerful telescopes
will not show that velocity as anything but rest. Beyond the outskirts of our Insignificant solar system are other systems, and beyond
them still others, so far as the sight
of man, aided by instruments, may
bridge the ghastly chasm of the Infinite. Distai.ces beside which the
Immense ltne stretching from earth to
sun Is an Invisible point are now
measured by means ot Roemer's epochal discovery as to th. velocity of

thief and recovering the pearls.
Braun pretended to Gys tbat he had
a customer for the necklace, but decamped when tbey were entrusted to
hUn, ostensibly abandoning his wlf*
and cljlldrei. Mme. Braun exhibited great grief at being deserted, but
M. Gys had a suspicion that she wa*
aware of her husband'* whereabouts,
so he had his hair dyed, donned a
false beard and ragged garments and
completely disguised as a typical Parisian mendicant, posted himself outside her rosldence and shadowed her
when she went out.
Three days passed and then, with
her children she went to the railway
station and took the express for Vienna. M. Gys was ln the samo train,
and on reaching the Austrian capital
hs saw Braun awaiting his family on
the platform. Ke followed the party,
and learning that beside* being a
swindler, Braun was a deserter from
the Austrian army, easily Induced th*
authorities to Issue a warrant for hi*
Captured after a vain endeavor to
use a revolver, Braun confessed that
he had pledged the necklace tor
$4,900 to three Parisian moneylenders.
Continuing hla researches, M. Oy*
found the bank In which Braun had
deposited this money, secured evl-
lencti to show that the threo moneylenders were Braun's accomplices, and
had them arrested, and eventually
traced the pearls.

Miss Mnrguerlte Asbton, a young lady
•f Chicago, wns left .nlone ln the world
at nineteen by the death of futber and
mother wltb a fortune of two millions.
MiflflS* Asliton's brother bud died several
years before lbe others; consequently
■II ber father's property descended to
ber. He had left tbe management ot
the cstute to a young man he bad
brought up In his business, Ediuond
Wurlield, In -whose bands he felt tbnt
It would be perfectly safe and his
daughter would reap the benefit ot
every cent, for WurOeld wns uot only
* man or excellent business judgment,
but perfectly honest nnd honorable.
At tbo time of Mr. Ashton's death
Wnrlleld was ln bis prime, belug thirty-
flvo years old.
Tbe Ashtons were of the newly rich,
Mr. Ashton having mnde the bulk of
bis fortune ln n large real estate speculation shortly before bis death. His
dnugbter bnd no knowledge of tbe
world or of society. Tbere was no near
relative with whom - sbe could make
ber home, and she did not relish living
alone. It was natural, therefore, tbat
•be should wish to see something of
tbe world, and, being invited to join a
party going abroad, she decided to avail
herself of the opportunity.
After visiting the principal cities of
-western Europe Miss Asbton found
herself In Rome at the most expensive
hotel there. She was still tbe unsophisticated Chicago girl, but her surroundings had changed. Tbls difference for
ber did not consist lu tbe vnst field
of antiquity about her, for, although
fairly educated, a girl of twenty is not
'likely to be versed ln the literature
Unit ba* been banded down to us from
ancient Rome. What wns new to Miss
Asbton was tho collection of person*
from all parts of tbe world she found
In tbe Eternal City. Tbougb Bbe obtained no entree Into Roman society,
she wns .thrown In with tourists of
every variety.
Rome, too, hns Its share of adventurers. Wherever Is tbe American wltb
his fnrfiiined dollars to spend there
is the adventurer, and no cluss Is so
susceptible of affording plunder for
dlHsulute foreigners ns American belr-
Miss Ashton could not long remain
In one place without attracting the attention of these cormorants. She was
■linplli-lty Itself. When visiting tbe
golden house of Nero-nnd the guide
showed her a ruined apartment as the
emperor's smoking room—she did not
stop lo consider that somo fifteen cen-
turics had elapsed after Nero's time
before tobacco wns Introduced Into
Europe. When Inspecting tableware
exhumed from I'ompcll and tbo guide
showed her ccrtuln dishes from which
he told her the I'oinpelnns drank their
coffee It did not occur to her tbat a
similar period hnd elapsed before Europe had begun to enjoy tbnt beverage. It Is not strange tbnt a girl so
easily deceived In these matters should
put fulfil In nny man who claimed that
be loved her.
Ills* Ashton spent * winter In Rome,
anil wben spring enme she hnd received n number of propositions of marriage. There are many prince's ln Italy,
for every one descended from an ancient ruler of one of the formerly Independent principalities of whnt I*
now United Italy bear* the title of
prince or princes*. Among Miss Ashton's train of suitors were n prince, an
English earl, a German baron and •
French marquis. ,
It rt** fortunate for Miss Asbton
that tber* were so many of these suitors tbat they balanced one another.
Had there been but one It ls quit*
probable thnt by persistence he might
have won tbe prize. Tbe prince poured
Into her ear tiles of bis beautiful home
In Sicily, wbere they conld dream tbe
happy hours away. The earl pictured
his estates In Hereford. England (loaded with mortgages); the baron bi*
•cbloss In Westphalia, Germany. Tbe
marquis spoke eloquently of his chateau on the bnnk* of th* Loir* that had
been the home of kings and had descended to blm through thirteen gener-
To tbls nobleman tbe yonng lady said
that she could not tblnk of marrying

that was an unlucky number. i
Miss Asbton after ber father'* death
became used to looking upon Edmund
Wnrlleld as a sort of manager for anything, irrespective of finances, tbnt sbo
could not manage herself. He bad
made all tbe arrangements for ber trip.
He bud heard not a word from ber
siuce ber departure till one day he received ii calUemm: "Do please come to
Rome at once. I am all tangled np.- -,

I've balf promised the marquis, and. Indeed, tbere Isn't oue of them I'm nut
partly committed to."
"I see no wny out of it for you,"
said Wnrlleld. "but to go Into a betrothal bankruptcy. However, I'll
make inquiries about tbese gentlemen
and report to you if any of tbem bear*

appears that while at Illchmond, just
after the surrender, she wus summoned to tbe door by n sharp'rap. Sh*

With my baby on my arm I nuswei*

tenderness and love lighted up tbe sad

upon giving his father's friend a dewy,
