Transfers of city property and
fruit lands continue active, and
scarcely a day .pauses that some Bale
i. not recorded. The 1110*1 important deal during the present week
was the sale, on Tuesday, nf Norman McLellan pretty residence in
Wesl end. The purchaser of tbis
property was Ben Whiteside, a C.P.
R. engineer. The consideration has
not been made public.
Tbe custom* officials in certain
sections of the Boundary appear to
be more solicitous about correcting
tbe morals of aliens than of the natives. Foreign baseball clubs can
not exhibit their skill here on tbe
Sabbath aB long a* tbe home team
can find opponent* on this side of
line. Uncle Sam will no doubt feel
duly grateful for tbe fatherly interest taken in his erring son* by the
officials. And the sport* on this side
of the line will not raise a protest
as long a* they can sandwich in a
ball game, played by native elubs,
between tbe morning and evening
sermons.    -
Labor for Fruit Growers
As a result of an inquiry conducted
by the British Columbia Fruitgrowers association throughout the various fruit districts of the province,
asking what labor would be required
for tbe current year, it is of interest
to note tbat tbe fruit district* are
more thoroughly supplied with labor tban wag the case two year* ago,
when the last general inquiry was
instituted. At that tm 1 fiuitgrow-
ers made application for 1450 men.
Asa rtsult of the present inquiry
they have asked for onlv 300.
Wages in the fruits district* have
advanced slightly in twu yeara and
the conditions of tbe workingman
have nlso improved in that fruit
growers are more generally supplying comiortable lodgings ai d suitable board.
From tbe inquiry it was learned
thnt on Vancouver island and in tbe
lower mainland suitable help can be
secured with little difficulty without
any *pecial effort on the part of organizations for the purpose. It is
true, however, that in these districts
tbe Chinese and Japanese to some
extent receive the preference over
white men.
The Okanagan, which will bave
tbe largest crop of fruit in its history tbis year, haa made the most
inquiries for labor, and it is evident
tbat tbere will be suitable employ
ment for men adapted to the work
of harvesting and handling fruit.

Fitzsimmons in "A Fight for
Love"
The fen I u re attraction of the
theiitrit.nl season will be the appear
ance here of the world'* greatest
lighter, Bob Fitzsitn 1111111*, supported by a capable company nf metropolitan players, in "A Fight for
Love." Fitz ha* been named by
hi* legion ol friend* and admirers as
"ihe grand o'd mm of tbe ring,
title which he richly deserves for hi*
untiring efforts to lift the lighting
gnme from the slough into which t
wns drifting to n clenn exhibition ol
the manly nrt—self defense. His
name hns never been connected in
any way with any crooked work.
He fought his way to tbe world'*
championship by pure physical
strength and science, and he accept-
ted his defeat at the hand of Jim
Jeffries like a man. He went into
the ring at 160 pounds against a
man who weighed 208, and yet tbe
streak of yellow failed to appear.
He was game to tbe finish. Hi* success in tbe theatrical world has been
as steady as hi* rise in the ring, and
he is still receiving the homage duo
to the greatest ring general that the
world has ever known. Bob Fitzsimmons (himself) and his company
will appear at tbe Grand Forks
opera house on Monday night,
July 8.
.. E. G. Warren, manager of the
British Columbia Copper company,
died in tbe hospital at Greenwood
on Thursday morning at 2:50
o'clock, as the resul- of an automobile accident tbat he met with last.
Saturday night.
While returning from Pboenix,
at a narrow place in the road near
Cropley'g ranch, the big automobile
of the British Columbia Copper
company turned over and ran for
some distance down the hill. All
the occupants were thrown out,
and escaped with minor injuries,
with the exception of Mr. Warren.
He was driving the car, and bad his
chest crushed by the Bteering wheel,
breaking several ribs and rupturing
one of bis lung*. He wa* removed
to the hospital^ and after several
day* of suffering, succumbed to the
effects of hi* wound*.
Edward George Warren was born
at Hawkesbury, Ont., March 13,
1874, dnd wa* therefore 38 year* of
age at tbe time ot bis death. He
was educated at the Hawkesbury
high school and at Trinity college,
Toronto, and first came to British
Columbia in 1896. He engaged in
mining at Rossland for two year*.
In 1903 be was a candidate for
Greenwood riding in the provincial
elections. He was. prominent in
hockey and curling circles, having
been president of tbe Greenwood
Curling club. In 1902 he was married to Miss Wilhelmia Hirscb, of
lngersoll, Ont. He was a Mason
and a member of; the Greenwood
club and tbe Engineers' club of New
York.
Mr. Warren ha* been general
manager of the British Columbin
Copper coinpany for about 0 ie year.
He was also secretary of the Greenwood City Waterworks company
since 190K, having been manager of
tbat company for seven years previously. Iu 1908 he became superintendent of tbe British Columbin
Copper company's smeller at Greenwood, j
The death of Mr. Warren will lie
severely felt by tbe mining industry
in tbis district. Under his capable
management the British Columbia
Copper company ho* enjoyed n
greater degree of prosperity than it
did under any previous regime. The
company will have some difficulty
to find a manager of equal capability
to fill his position, as men of hi*
gcniuB are scarce.
Tbe funeral will be held in Greenwood tomorrow. A large number
of the friends of the deceased in
tbis city will attend.

Toronto Man Cured

"I Just want to aay a (rood word (or Cull-

ago I waa in Port Arthur, and I bad an attack
ol the Itch. It certainly was an Intolcrablo
nuisance. The ltclilns waa principally at
nights before I went to bed. The thighs
weie (specially affected.
"I went to tv,o doctors about It, and tried
more than one remedy. I was beginning to
think the complaint was Incurable, when I
waa tellliiR my trouble to a barber, and he
raid that lie would guarantee to euro me. He
laid me to take a hot hatb, use Cuticura
Soap, and Iben apply Cuticura Ointment.
I took hla advice, and, aura enough, the itch
vanished. I had probably been troubled with
tlie itch for two or three month* before I
tried Cuticura Soap.and Ointment, and tbey
completely cured me of that Intolerable
nuisance. After one warm bath with Cull-
cunt Boap and ute of the Cuticura Ointment
I wu never troubled with the Itching again.

EATING VEGETABLES.
A Few Valuable Printi on a Subject
of General   Interest.
Vegetables, form .a large part of th*
diet of every civilized nation. What
would the Irish do without their po-
tatoes, or the Chines* tnd JapanM*
without their rice? Fresh vegetables
are very necessary il health it to bt
maintained; and sailor* who (50 on
long journeys require a certain
, amount of fresh green food snd fruit
i otherwise they develop a disease
known as "scurvy."
For long lhe origin ol this malady
remained unknown, but it has since
been proved that it is due to ths absence ol these fresh green vegetable
foods. So, in winter time especially,
we ars apt to suffer from a deficiency
of these foods, and care should be
takeu to obtain a certain amount ol
them every day.
A' few vegetables are good eaten
raw, but the bulk ol tliem undoubtedly should be cooked, to a, greater or
lesser extent. The cabbage is an example ol the former. It ls a very
healthful article of diet, and contains
various "organic salts" which are
highly beneficial.
When cabbage is cooked much of
this nutriment is lost—boiled out into
tha water in which the vegetabli it
cooked, and only the "skeleton," so
to say, is left. Cooking seems to destroy tha life-giving properties — the
vitality—of many foods. II cooked,
vegetables should be placed in fast
boiling water — first ol all — as this
tends to shrivel up the outer coating
ol the vegetable and keep the juices
in tiie tender iuside portions—instead
of allowing them to boil out' into the
water so completely.
All vegetables contain various valuable organic salts, without which life
would be impossible.
Vegetarians, or those who never eat
meat, depend for their muscle-forming elements largely upon the bean,
pea and lentil family, which form
"the beafsteak of tho vegetarians."
But one ol-t.e most valuable properties of these foods is the fact that
they contain a very large quantity of
heat and energy-giving ma-erial. The
meats contain little of this, and most
o. the other vegetables an also lacking in these "carbohydrates."
The cabbage family, comprising Hi*
cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach
and other greens, are especially good
for persons suffering from skin diseases of all kinds; also fo;' those having anaemia, scrofula, gout and rheumatism. AM such greens should be
eaten with caution, and thoroughly
chewed or "masticated" before they
are swallowed.
Many persons find vegetables hani
to dirjist. If so, they should eat them
sparingly.
Asparagus is by many considered a
great delicacy and is certainly one of
the choicest of all vegetables'. It ls
considered to be especially good for
nervous complaints and for diseases
of the heart, including palpitation.
Onions are noted fer ths large percentage of. valuable salts they contain.
Tbey are especially good for kidney
troubles—including gravel. They act
also as good stimulants, tonics and
'ajrat.ives.
Th* Word "Scat."
It seems to be generally understood
that there Is no word of Its letters
that can be said quicker than "scat."
But just how long it takes to pronounce it is a question lor modern
experimental psychology.
If you were a student in the psychological laboratory at a university
j-ou could determine that. The ozonoscope, an instrument which measures
time in thousandths of a second, tells
the time exactly. Still, a quick ton-
gued man could probably read a book
through while a stuttering man said
"scat." Furthermore, to know how
long it takes to say "scat" is not to
very important anyhow.
Mountain Tobacco. .
In Switzerland a weed called mountain tobacco is smoked in great quan.
titles. It is powdered beiore using
and causes the smoker to become a
mental and physical wreck. The natives ol South Africa are peculiarly
affected by smoking the dried leaves
ol the camphor plant*. The smoker
trembles with fright at nothing, weeps i
bitterly and uses all torts of words
which do not in the least express hit
meaning. The wild dagja, another
South African plant, poisont slowly
any one using it.

"I'm going off on a hunting trip

MOTHERS PLEASED WITH
BABY'S OWN TABLETS
A mother who.haB once used Baby's
Own Tablets for her little one never
falls to show her pleasure at the result. She at once realizes that they
are the Ideal medicine for baby—being absolutely safe and free from Injurious drugs aud at the same time a
sure cure for all the little ills from
which babies suffer. Mrs. P. Tlier-

"Please send me another box of
Baby's Own Tablets. I was extremely
pleased with the last. My baby wa*
greatly troubled with constipation
and vomiting, but the Tablets quickly
cured her." The Tablet* are aold by
medicine dealers or by mall at 25
cents a box from The Dr. Williams'

It I* a Liver Pill—Many of the ailments that man has to contend with
have their origin ln a disordered liver,
which is a delicate organ, peculiarly
susceptible to the disturbances that
conie from irregular habits or lack of
care in eating and drinking. This accounts for the great many liver regulators now messed on the attention
of sufferers Of these there Is none
superior to Parmelee's Vegetable
Pills. Their operation though gentle
Is effective, and the most delicate can
use them.

neighbors of his cure from a severe
attack of Kidney Disease which kept
htm in a state of paid and suspeuse

of two doctors who were treating hiin.
"My trouble started with a cold,"
Mr.  Mjujaison    says. "My    muscles
would cramp and I bad backache and

had a tired, nervous,   feeling   while
specks of light flashed ln front of my
eyes."
"I suffered ln this way for over two
nionthB and was treated by two doctor* but they didn't seem to be
able to do much for mo. Then I
started to take Dodd's Kidney Pills
and they helped nie almost at onco.
Six boxes cured  me."

Kidneys. Cured Kidneys strain all
the Impurities out of the blood. That

bear the. loss on one item ot bis Income, *o long a* other* were profitable. There 1* no room for disputing the fact that what la known a*
"mixed farming" 1* good farming, safo
farming and profitable farming.
Look abroad.and see how the farm-
era who pay a yearly rent of from
$6 to $15 an aore make farming pay.
It is not by confining themselves to
growing crop* of grain. That la tbelr
smallest source of revenue. The making of butter and cheese; the raising
and fattening of hogs, sheep and cattle for the butcher; the breeding ot
horses; the growing ot roots and vegetable* for market, all contribute to
the British farmers' bank account and
enable him to pay high rents to hiB
landlord. Here, ln this northwestern
Canada, the land 1* fertile. The farmers have no rent* to pay. But when
bad seasons come, as come they will,
the single crop on which the farmers
wholly depend, Is a failure, and the
majority ot them are brought to the
brink ot ruin. Diversified farming
would remedy all this.
Now, we will give a brief glance
at Ontario, and *ee what mixed farming has done tor that province. Fifty
yeara ago, grain growing had resulted ln Impoverishing the land to such
an extent that ln large districts lt
would not grow anything to yield a
profit.. Tbe dairy industry has worked wonders ln Improving these conditions.   For instance, look at   the
county ot Oxford. Tho land 1* now
fertile and will grow anything. Cood
large brick barn*, comfortable and
largo brick and stone borne* have replaced the ramshackle, dilapidated log
buildings, and there is an air ot comfort and prosperity on every farm. At
Woodstock and Ingersoll, markets are
held-every week at which are to be
seen cheese buyer* from all parts of
the province, and even trom Brltaiu.
The quality of the cheese is equal to
any ln the world and command* the
highest prices. In other parts of that
province tho result has been equally
satisfactory.
Tbe factory system prevails, mostly
ln Ontario, but there are a great
many private dairies which are very
profitable, though the farms are small,
tew ot them exceeding one hundred
acres. For example, the writer know*
of farm* ot that size where twenty
to twenty-five milk cows are kept and
the milk la made Into cheese and butter aud Bold In the locat markets.
The dairies are operated on the most
Improved principles, a member of the
family thoroughly learning the business In one of the many nearby cheese
factories. All these farms glye a
good profit to their owners. Their
handsome horaea and the well-dressed
and good-looking sons and daughter*
of the house, a* they go to church
on Sundays ln their double-seated
buggies, bear unmistakable testimony
to the success of mixed farming.
Are the Fly and Mosquito Dangerous?,
The fly, with ipoagy feet, collect*, the invisible terms of diseases, i.
Ihem over our food and poisons ui with typhoid and cholera. The mosquito with
ill bite injectt into our veins malaria and yellow fever. The bacteria ci consumption, or trip, are everywhere present for us to breathe into our lunfi. The Mood
which flows through our veins and arteries is our protection., It should contain
healthy red and white blood corpuscles—capable of warding off these disease
germs. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is a blood medicine and alterative
made entirely without alcohol, a pure glyceric extract of bloodroot, golden seal,
Oregon grape root, queen's root, mandrake and stone root, which has enjoyed •
good reputation for over forty years. The refreshing in*
fluence of this extract is like Nature's influence—the blood
is bathed in the tonic which gives life to the blood— the
vital fires of the body burn brighter and their increased
activity consumes the tissue rubbish which hss accumulated
during the winter.

superintendent of the Brandon Experimental Farm, was told by that
gentleman that be had known of many
farmers wbo had failed as wheat
growers, but he had never known ot
one farmer to fall who honestly practiced mixed farming. Mr. Bedford spoke the truth. Never
was there a tterner lesson given than
the western farmers have gotteti this
year. They staked tbelr all on ono
crop—wheat and otber grain—and that
crop though large waa not a success.
The result, as we all know, bas been

FRIDAY, JULY .5, l»l-.'
From information that has
reached The Sun this week, it
appears that the grain growers of the prairie provinces are
not as eager to purchase British Columbia fruit this year
as tliey have been in previous
seasons. One fruit grower of
this valley, who in former
years has disposed of his entire crop in the Northwest,
has been unable to elicit any
response to his letters of inquiry sent out to his old customers this summer. It has
been suggested that this
apathy on the part of the
North westerners may be due
to the result of the Dominion
elections last fall. British Columbia voted solidly to restrict
the grain growers' markets.
It is possible that the grain
growers may go elsewhere for
their fruit. To retaliate is as
human as it is to err. Little

backwards, by this subterfuge deluding the doorkeepers into believing that he
was coming out instead of going in. Can it be possible
that the British Columbia fruit
growers, even after the heroic
measures tliey adopted last
fall to capture the Northwest
market, have only been walking backwards?
In various parts of the world
igitations are rife for old-age
pensions. In British Columbia
there is no need of such a law,
as the government road work
serves the same purpose.

Calling the present litigation between the Hindus of British Columbia
and the Canadian government, in so
far as it applies to the admission of
Hindu women, "a national immorality," the Montreal Witness says:
Law or no law, Utj) refusal of the
Canadian government*!, admit into

self-respecting ract> to whose native
indefeasible loyalty the empire has
owed its salvation, it is not for the
most daring statesman to attempt to
compute. The exclusion of men's
wives is far worse in principle than
the exclusion of the men themselves,
for God made mon and women to dwell
together. - It is a greater slight upon
the race affected and a greater mischief to society. We cannot see how
the principle of law can be ignored
tbat a woman domicile is that of her
husband A law tlmt pretends to as

Has been stolen, and after many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
whieh he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar hark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with eries of joy
which bring her mother and brother tn lhe door. "Laddie'.' is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome hy putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
whine, whieh in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman pf soft curves, tender eyes
nnd parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager hoy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with ripplinglocks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy ncek of
the beautiful collie, ail go to form a picture that will win a Favored place
on the walls of any home.
Tbe picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.

HAVE YOU A SKIN RASH?
Zam-Buk Will End It.
For skin rashes, eruptions, eczema,
etc., either ln adults or children,
there is nothing known to science
which equals Zam-Buk in the quickness and certainty ot its curative
power. Mr. Raymond Webber, ol Al-
lanburg, Ont., writes: "I have tried
•Zam-Buk for many ailments, and
every time have found it successful.
Some time ago I had a bad rash all
over my body. I tried home-made
salves, herb salves, and various homemade preparations, and these proved
of no use, but when 1 tried Zam-Buk
I was cured in a quarter of the time
that I had beeu experimenting in vain
with other preparations
"On another occasion I had one of
mi lingers crushed, and in that case
also Zam-Buk was the only remedy I
used. It healed the wound splendidly.
"My boy had bolls and once again
Zam-Buk brought about a complete
cure. We have also used it aB a household balm, for the Injuries and skin
diseases which are common to every
person, and can say that-In our experience there ls notning to equal
Zam-Buk."
Zam-Buk owes Its unique healing
power to certain herbal extracts it
contains. Unlike most ointments it
contains no poisonous coloring matter, no animal fat, but is purely herbal. For eczma, plies, blood poiBon, abscesses,, ulcers,, cue, burns and all
skin injuries and diseases it is without equal and should be in every
home. 50c box, all druggists and
stores. I'se also Zam-Buk Soap, 25c,

What the Parii Police Are Paid.
The Paris police who risked their
lives in trying to arrest the members
of the automobile bandit band are not
overpaid.
The chief inspector, Oolmard, receives $840 a year and has reached
the highest rate in the service. Sergt.
Fleury has WOO a year. After him
comes Inspector Rohr, who arrested
Carony, for which day's work he got
*1.50.
Inspector Leroy has S1.34 a day and
Inspector Sevetre and Huet, wbo after watching for Beven consecutive
nights, arrested Raymond la Sciesce,
do not receive quite $1.25 a day.
Inspector Naeesens, who arrested
one.ot the gang, Paul Doehel, gets
the same amount.
It ls true that pensions are paid
after a certain length of service, but
It ls not surprising in view ot the
scale of the pay that goqd men in the
Paris detective service should be attracted by private work.
A lady recently stopped at an east-
end open-air butcher's stall antl purchased a Joint at threepence a pound.
She returned shortly after and complained that it was saturated with
naphtha from one of the butcher's
lamps.
"S'welp me!" remarked the butcher.
"Vou gels don't want much — not
'arf! You've got a wing rib off a bullock what was bred by King George
hlsself for threepence a pound, and
now you ain't satisfied! You're askin
too much, mum. If you want your

Umbrella* and Parasol?.
Fashions change In Umbrellas Sn
well as ln clothes. .We find on' visiting the London Museum thai; Gebrge
IV. used to carry a green silk umbrella fringed with gold, and about twice
as large as the umbrella ot today.
Parasols, too, have diminished in size
since they first came Into use. Henri
Estlenne, writing In 1578, speaks of
a parasol as capable generally ot sheltering four persons from the sun. And
when they diminished in circumference the material remained of the
heaviest. Red velvet parasols, with
heavy gold fringes, were carried by
ladies ot fashion in the days of Louis
XIV. At that time lt was possible,
when crossing a bridge In Paris, to
hire a parasol at one end and deposit
it at the other, the charge for the
accommodation being a sou.—London
Chronicle.
That Was "Willie."
The late Bishop William N. Mc-
Vickar, of Rhode Island, harbored a
large soul in a body to match,. He
waB a bachelor, whose sister kept
house for him.
Ou one occasion he telephoned to
his tailor that he wished** to have a
pair ' of trousers pressed, and the
tailor sent a boy to his residence to
get them.
The Bishop's sister admitted the
messenger and called upstairs: "Willie, the boy has come for your trousers!"
When her brother appeared the
youth's astonished gaze traversed the
prelate's impressive "corporosity,"
then he murmured:
"Gee! Is that Willie!"

of blood, or ono or more of Its constituents may be lacking. The surest
symptom of anaemia is pallor. The
trouble is particularly common among
young girls between the ages of fourteen and eighteen, but is also found
in women of all ages, and quite frequently attacks men. It ls nearly always present and prevents recovery
after grippe, fevers, malaria, nnd operations, and fo- this reason a tonic
medicine is required in all theBe
cases to enrich the blood, build up
the nerves and restore health and
strength. And there is no other tonic
as good as Dr. Williams' Fink Pills,
as has been proved in thousands and
thousands of cases, among them that
of Miss Annie Turner, Marie Joseph
Post Office, N. S.. who says: "Dr.
Williams' pink Pills have been of inestimable beneflt to me. I was so badly run down that I could hardly go
about, was not able to help in the
work about the house. As my health
grew worse the trouble brought on
some species of fit. and when these
attacks would come on I would Home-
times- remain unconscious for half an
hour. After many other medicines
had failed to help me, my brother
got me a supply of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills and I began taking these. In
the course of a few weeks I felt much
better, and after taking the Pills for
a time longer I was again in tlie full
enjoyment of good health. I feel that
I cannot praise Dr. Williams' Pink

"When one hears of a drama without words," says a letter from St.

says Mardschanow, "and plays In
which action, music and scenery can

In order to demonstrate this theory

TBE WITCH OF
DAHLGREN
b| A Witch In Fancy, but Not
| In Fact
CLARISSA MACKIE
WWlllttMWlltWWIililllllS!
The three traveling men drew closer
•round the bot stove iu the parlor of
Ibe little hotel nt Duhlgreu, I'u. Ben-
Ion, the cigar salesman, was continuing a conversation that had begun at
the snpper table n short while before.
"Ucntlomeu," he said Impressively,
"] know It sounds mlgbty fishy, but 1
actually did see wbat they call 'The
Witch of Dablgreu!"'
"When?" asked Cooper, the clothing
drummer.
"On  my last  trip  to this  forlorn
hole," was Benton's caustic reply.
•'"And that was?"-
"Lnst April. It's a short atory: Want
to bear about It?"
"Yes, go ahead," urged tbe third
member of the group, Joel Clifford,
who represented a great wholesale
grocery house. He was a tall, good
looking, quiet sort of man, well liked
everywhere. There bad been a tragedy ln bis life which many bad guessed at, but few knew tbe real facts tn
the case.
Benton passed the cigars around and
lighted one for himself..
"Now, gentlemen," be began, "please
understand that 1 shall not feel in the
least offended If you do not believe
what I am about to tell you, but It
really happened to me ln this town.
Last April I arrived bere In tbe regular course of my travels end put up ot
tbls some hotel. I wss tho only guest
tbat night, and after supper I got to
talking wltb our host, whom you may
have sized up to be Just what he ls-
a narrow minded country bumpkin."
"lou're right," agreed Cooper
promptly.
Joel Clifford smiled and shook bis
''head. "I can't express an opinion,
Benton, because I haven't seen tbe
chap. This Is ths flrst time I've covered this territory."
"You haven't missed mucb tn not
making bis acquaintance," growled
Benton, continuing bis narrative. "As
I said, I fell, luto conversation with
Linden and nsked him a question that
had been on the tip of my tongue for
several hours-in fact, ever since I had
heard a womau threatening her children with tbe wrath of tbe old witcb
on tbe crossroads. 'You certainly
haven't got a witch In tbis commonplace town?' I asked him Jokingly.
"For a moment be was silent, and'
then he stroked his long black beard
and muttered: 'We certainly bare, Mr.
Benton. The crossroads ls a good place
to keep away from.'
" 'Why?' I demanded.
"'Because tbere ls an old woman
there who can work a charm or cast
an evil spell over anybody. Mon, 1
know Itl' And the old fellow got quite
excited.
"'You're Joking, BUI Linden,* 1
laughed.
"He scowled like tho villain that he
must be from hla looks. 'Mr. Benton,
wben I tell you that that woman hail
ruined my life you'll understand that 1
know rtbst I'm. talking about She
ought to hove been banged yeara ago-
tbat's Ihe way they. did' with the
witches In Jbe olden days,   lf 1 bad
my way she'd bang high now!* And
he fell to muttering to himself nnd
cursing.
"'Guess I'll go and have • look at
her,' I uld half Jokingly.
"'You better not,' I was warned.
'She keeps a gun and winged Mason
Smith wben bo got drunk one day aud
attacked her house. Just opened ber
window and took aim, and Mason
went around wltb bis* arm in a sling
for three months after that'
"'Is she an old woman'/' I asked.
"'Must be,'was the reply. 'Hair as
white as anow.'
"'Where did sbe come from!' I Inquired.
" 'Nobody knows. Suddenly appeared In tbat little deserled bouse ou tbe
crossroads about flve years ago. Never comes out In daytime, but I've seen
her face ot tbe window, and some aay
lhal sbe rides at nlgbt on a snow white
horse. I don't know whether to believe that or not.'
"'You mlgbt as well believe the
.whole thing while you're about It, my
friend,' I grinned at him. nnd I Immediately went down to the crossroads
•nd took a stroll along tbe lonely wsy
that cut through dense woods. Why,
they must be back of tbis hotel!"
" Benton paused (o .relight bis cigar
•nd to marvel for a moment ou tbe
Idea that bad Just taken possession of
lilm. Then be resumed: "About n mile
down tbo road I saw a lonely llllle
bouse-more of a cabin than a bouse—
•et back In tbe woods ond overgrown
to the very door with underbrush.
Smoke curled from the chimney, nntl
I was staring at tbe windows when all
at once a face appeared at one of tbem.
I could not gee whether sbe was young
or old, but tbe face was white as a
sheet nnd on either aide of it bung
two heavy braids of snow white hair.
Tbe great dark eyes were turned to*
ward me, and two arms were lifted
either tn supplication or malediction.
"For au iustant 1 was rooted to the
spot, nnd then I rubbed my eyes In
wonderment, for suddenly she Jerked
backward, almost as If some one was
behind her compelling ber away from
the window. She disappeared from
view, and I walked ou, quite convinced that thf apparition l uaa seen was
tbat of some crated person. Nevertheless tbere was an air of mystery about
tbe whole matter, ahd the village gossip concerning tbe so called wttcb determined we to stroll around there late
lu tbe evening. 1 did so near midnight and was rewarded by n strange
sight
"Just as I paused ln front of the
little bouse, wblcb I could locate only
by a glint of light from one curtained
wiudow, 1 heard tbe trampling of
horses' hoofs and there broke from tbe
tangled growth ln .front of tbe bouse
a otm wblte shape tbat I knew td be
a borse and a suggestion of dim white
above tbat I was convinced must be
tbe face and belr of tbe wttcb ot Dablgreu. Beside ber rode a black bulk
tbat must have been another rider on
ti black horse, and -for the Instant I
thought the witch must be riding with
her master, tbe devil himself.
"I had to fall back ln tbe bushes to
save myself from being trampled upon,
so furious was tbelr dash into tbe road.
They turned away from the village
toward tbe open country nod disappeared. Uentlemen, I was curious
enough to remain there until tbelr return an bour later, wben a pale moon
peeped from the drifting clouds.
"They*'were riding slowly now. and
the woman was pleading wltb tbe
otber rider, a man, I could see her
wringing ber wblte hands, and ber
voice, n low, sweet contralto, did not
sound like tbst of a deranged person.
Her accents were cultivated, but Ibe
mau spoke roughly ln reply, and I
hesrd her break Into sobs as he bustled ber towurd tbe house and they
disappeared beyond It Later I heard
the crashing of branches ns If the
horses were being led off through tbe
woods back of tbe hut, nud. uow tbat
I tblnk of It, It must bave been la the
direction of this, botel."
Benton frowned as be opened the
stove door and tossed In tbe eud ot
bis cigar. "I've often felt tbat I'd
like to Investigate tbe matter. You
see, I bad to leave early tbe next
morning, and this ts the first time I've
struck tbls towo since then, but my
first question when 1 met a man I
knew was, 'Is yonr wltcb still bere'.'
And be said sbe was. There's a mystery In tbe matter, because"— Benton
paused and stared thoughtfully at tbe
toe of bis polished boot
"Because"— suggested Cooper Impatiently.
"Because tbe voice of the black
rldcc that nlgbt sounded, mlgbty like
tbe voice of mine host bere, Bill Lin*
den," returned Benton In o tow tone,
Joel (.Word aroused himself from
the bolt lounging position be bad assumed wben Benton began bis narrative, and. although be bad been a
close listener to the atory, hla own
thoughts must bave made a aad running accompaulmeut to the tale, for
his eyes were full ot troubled reminiscence.
He lifted bis eyes to- tbe mantelpiece, where an old fashioned mirror
hung In such a position tbat It reflect*
ed the door Into tbe hall. Joel Glf-
ford saw n picture framed In tbat
doorway, ond be balf rose from bis
choir snd pointed with a shaking linger at tbe face he saw in tbe glass.
It was tbe face of a tall, black
bearded man, wltb a narrow bead ond
little block eyes gleaming wickedly be*
neath busby brows. He was staring
at Joel Gilford as If fascinated by tbe
younger man's face. Tbere wns ferocity In bis gaze, as well as surprise
and fear.
"Wbo la that mon." cried Joel afford excitedly as he whirled around
toward the doorway.
"It's Bill Linden, our landlord!''
cried Benton. And tben be pulled
Glfford violently uslde, for tbere wns
the deafening report ot a* pistol, and
the bullet Hint bod been Intended for
Glfford found another mark and shattered tbe mirror. There was another
report, and tbe landlord of the Dablgreu botel dropped dead upon tbe Boor,
kilted by bis own wicked' band.
Glfford reached blm flrst sud turned
blm over and looked closely at tbe
dead man's face. "He Is dead," be
sold briefly, and then, rising, he continued to tbe little crowd of people
lhat bad gathered ot tbe sound of tbe
pistol shots: "Gentlemen, this mnn is
not Bill Linden. That must be an assumed name, fur he has been well
known to the world as Cbatleld Chapman, n well knowu bauker wbo disappeared five years ago and wbo was
supposed to be dead. At lho snme
time be disappeared my young wife,
who was his only daughter, nlso dis-
appeared from my house, nnd from a
note that reached me a few dnys latei
1 could ouly Judge that botb of Ibenf
were dead.~ The-nolo was sighed by
my father-in-law, and he said tbst si
he bad failed ln business be .would end
all and thst he .would take Gertrude
with him. My search for tbem both
has covered five years,.and It must
end tonight, for I believe I bave found
tbe solution to the mystery.
"Cbatleld Chapman was passionately
fond of his only child and always
hated me because I loved and married
ber. It Is my belief that he lured her
away and bas kept ber prisoner In tbls
but ln tbe woods back bere. allowing
her to ride forth only at night for air
and exercise. Gentlemen, the ultcb of
Dahlgren Is my wife!"
Accompanied by n crowd of Interested villagers, the. tbree traveling men
hastened to lbe bouse ln the woods
and broke open Its barred door. There,
facing them with beautiful white face
frozen Into foor nnd ber grief whitened locks banging in heavy braids over
her shoulders, was Gertrude Glfford,
Joel's lost bride.
At ber scream of Joyful recognition
as her husband took her in his arms
once more tbe people backed out of
tbe bouse and left the reunited couple
alone with tbelr happiness.
Thus passed the wltcb of Dahlgren.
Irishmen Barred.
The reception given recently to the
Irish students at Gray's Inn recalls
a time when Irishmen, were not so welcome at the Inns of Court.- One ol
the earliest entries in the Bench Books
ol Lincoln's Inn is, Bays "The Law
Journal," an order, dated 1437, "that
no person born In Ireland should in
luture be admitted as a Fellow of
the Society ot 'Lyncollysyn'; and it
anyone born there shall hereafter be
admitted by any person or persons,
hi shall be expelled, such admission
notwithstanding." The rule seems to
have been in force in the tour Inns,
but sppears to have been relaxed alter a time by allowing special admissions. Lincoln's Inn permitted the
admission ot a limited number ol
Irishmen, but in the middle of the
lOl'.i century required tliat all Irish
students should have chambers in one
building, known as the "Dovecote."
So late as thc 18th century some disability attached to Irishmen. The tine
on admission to tlie Middle Temple
was £5, while other members paid
only £4;
