Death of Capt. Disbrowe
The Winnipeg Free Press has the
following article regarding the recent
death of Capt. W, H. Disbrowe, who
was one of the pioneers of Orand
Forks, and who resided here until Hope, paralleling
four or live years ago:
A letter has lieen received by Clark
Bros, ilt Hughes from Superintendent
Constantiu, of the northwest mounted
police at Prince Albert, enquiring for
particulars as to the late W, H. Disbrowe, who died in St Boniface hospital about two weeks ago.   It seems
that Mr. Disbrowe'a father, who   was
a Church of England clergyman, died
aome time ago, and friends asked  the
Route Approved
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of
the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern
railway, has announcod that the
Qreat Northern railway has definitely abandoned the idea of building a
ine between Simian Landing and
tbe Caoadian
Northern line, but through an arrangement with Sir William Mac-
benzie will use that line for a distance of thirty eight mi es. The
Great Northern will probably reciprocate by permitting tbe Canadian
line to use its tracks between Vancouver and Port Kelli, at least until the latter has built its line between Port Mann and Port Kelts.
During  bis  month's   tour Mr.
K.N.W.M.P. to locate the son several Kenned-T «eoured the ftPPro*al oI the
board of railway commissioners at
niontha ago, with the idea of getting
him to take charge of the estate,
W. H. Disbrowe was a guest at the
Dominion hotel, Main street, Winni
peg, all the time.
The late Mr. Disbrowe was an interesting personage. He came to
Canada in 1876, and for a time settled in Ontario, coming to Winnipeg,
where he established a farm implement emporium on Main street, close
to where the Union bank now stands.
For a time afterwards he waa in the
real estate business, and became manager for A. W. Ross in the Birtle
Farming company, situated near Beu-
lah, Man.
Later Mr. Disbrowe was appointed
government guide by the late Sir John
A. Macdonald, then premier of Canada. He waa prominently connected
with the militia in the early days.and
was also a member of the volunteer
lire brigade. He then went to Quebec citadel for a course of instruction
as an officer in field battery {.work
While there he was appointed by the
then lieutenant-governor of the prov.
ince as aide-de-camp. When the
troops were called out (or the Riel re*
hellion he came to the northwest
again, as transport officer, and became
a "galloper" to General Middleton.
He was an officer along with Hugh
John Macdonald in the first cavalry
corps of Manitoba, which he organized
and captained, and he was prominent
here in both military and social circles. At cricket he was also quite an
expert. He was a personal friend of
Lieutenant-Governor Schultz, Lieutenant-Governor Macintosh, A. W.
Onderdonk, James Isbister, the two
latter being big railway contractors.
T. G. Poyntz, James H. Ashdown,
Thomas Scott, and other prominent
men were among his acquaintances in
the early days. A strong Conservative, he was alwhys active in the organization work of that party.
Years ago Mr. Disbrowe   went   to
Banff, where he established an outing
house some distance  away from the f
present  hotel   at that place.    From
there he went to Nelson, B. C.    His

While at St. Paul Mr. Kennedy was
authorised to call for tenders for the
construction of nine wooden bridge
on the line between Abbotsford and
Sumas Landing, in tbe building of

No instructions for tbe construction of tbe line from Tulatiieeii to

undertaken until next year, as the

Compressed Air Blasting
In modern mining the operators
are ready and willing to avail themselves of any new methods or devices which will cheapen and increase the production, and a method
recently adopted in some coal mines
dislodges the mass of coal by tbe
direct application, behind the mass,
of a charge of compressed air. The
method appears to be effective, and
seems to bave no element of danger
either to the mine or the miners.—

A Good Shot
The viceroy of India, Lord Dufferin, once had a shikaree, or hunting-servant, whose duty it was to attend the visitors at the viceregal
court on their shooting excursions.
This young man was above all noted
for his tact.
Returning one day from one of
these expeditions, the shikaree encountered the viceroy, who, full of
courteous solicitude for his guests'
enjoyment, asked:
"Well, what sort of eport has
Lord had?"
"Oh," replied   the scrupulously
polite Indian,   "the   young   sahib

Vernier produced a small knife anil
Gurdon attempted to insinuate the
point of the blade under the elubor-
ate moulding. Surely enough, the
moulding yielded, und presently came
away in Gurdon's hands.
"There you are," he said. "It ia
exactly as I told you. I thought at
first that those mouldings were plas
ter, but you can see for yourself now
that they are elaborately carved
wood."
It was exactly as Gurdon had said
Venner laid the ornament, aside and
stood watching Gurdon with breathless interest whilst the latter attacked another of the mouldings. They
came away quite easily, pointing to
the fact that they must have been
removed before within a very short
period. Once they were nil cleared
away, Gurdon placed the point of the
knife behind one of the panels, and
it came away in his hands, disclosing
beyond a square hole large enough
for anybody to enter. Here was tbe
whole secret exposed.
"Exacty what I thought," Gurdon
said. "If I removed the other three
panels there would be space enough
here to drive a trap through. I think
we have been exceedingly lucky to
get to the bottom of this. It is won
derfully clever how ingeniously the
whole thing has been managed. However, I don't think there is any occasion for us to worry about moving
any more of the panels, s*>eing that
we can get through quite easily.
Wouldn't it be just as well to put
out all the lights?"
The house was reduced to darkness
and very cnutiouslv the two adventurers crept through the panel. They
were in the hall on the other side, of
which fact there was no doubt, for
they stepped at once off a marble
floor on to n thick nig which deadened the sound of their footsteps.
They bad, naturally enough, expected
to find the whole place in darkness
and the tenant of the house nnd his
servants in bed. This would be in
their favor, for it would enable them
to take all the observations they required with a minimum chance of being discovered.
A surprise awaited tbem from the
first. True the hall was in darkness,
and as far as they could judge, so
was the rest of thc house. But from
somewhere upstairs came the unmis
takuble sound of a piano, and of
somebody singing in a sweet but
plaintive soprano voice. Gurdon
clutched his compnnion by the arm.
"Don't you think it is just possible that wc have made a mistake?"
he whispered. "Isn't it quite on tne
cards that this is a genuine affair,
and that we are intruding in an unwarrantable manner upon some respectable private citisen? I am bound
to confess that that beautiful voice
does not sugeest crime to me."
"Oh, we must go on now." Venner
said impatiently. "It won't do to
judge by appearances. Let us go up
the stairs and see what is going on
for ourselves. If we nre intruding,
we will get away as speedily as possible."
Gurdon made no further objection,
and together they crept up the stairs.
They were getting nearer and nearer
now to the sound nf the music, which
appeared to eonie from the drawing-
room, the door of which was widely
enough open for the brilliant light inside In illuminate the staircase. A
moment let *r the music ceased, ami
someone was heard to applaud in a
hoarse voice.
"Sing some more," the voice said.
"Now don't be foolish, don't begin
to cry again. Confound the girl, she
makes im* miserable"
"Do you recognise the voice?" Venner whispered,
"Lord, yes," was Gordon's reply.
"Why, it's Fenwick. No mistaking
those fines anywhere. Now, what on
earth does all this mean?"
"That we shall lin.I out presently,"
Venner said. "Vou may laugh at tiie,
but I quite expected something ol
this kind, which was one ol the rea-
was sprawling in a big arm chair,
smoking a large cigar. Then he noticed that the girl crossed 'the floor
and laid a slim hand half timidly,
half imploringly, on Fenwick's shoulder.
"Why are you so unkind to me?'
she said. "Why so cruel? How many
times have you promised me that yj-i
will bring him back to me again? I
i get so tired of waiting, I feel so sad
and weary, and at times my mind
seems to go altogether."
"Oh, patience,'" Fenwick .laid. "If
you will only wait a little longer he
will come back to you right enough.
Now go to the piano and sing me
another song before I go to bed. Do
you hear what I say?"
The last words were harshly uttered ; the girl shrank .buck as if fearing
a blow. Gurdon standing there, clenched his fists impulsively; he hnd
some difficulty in restraining htmself.
"Very well," she said; "just one
more, and then I will go to bed, for
I am so tired and weary."
Once more the sweet pathetic voice
rang out in aome simple song, and
the words gradually died away, and
once more there was silence. Gurdon
had barely time to slip back to the
head of the stairs before the girl
came out and made her way to the
landing above. Standing just below
the level of the floor, Venner sgazed
eagerly at the pretty tired face, and
mournful blue eyes. He grasped his
companion by the arm in a grip that
was almost painful.
"We are getting to it," he said.
"It was a good night's work coming
here to-night. Do you mean to say
you don't notice the likeness? Making
due allowance for the difference in
height and temperament, that poor
girl is the image of my wife."
"I must have been a dolt not lo
have noticed it before," Gurdon said.
"Now that you mention it the likeness is plain enough. My dear ie'.'ovv
can't you see in this a reason for you'
wife's reticence in speaking of the
past?"
There was no time to reply, for the
sinister evil face of Fenwick appeared in the doorway, and he called
aloud in Spanish some hoarse command, which wns answered from
above by someone, in the saire Inn-
truag'". Gurdon whispered to his com
panion with a view to ascertaining
what hnd been said.
"Oh, yon will -lee for yourself in a
minute," Venner said in nn excited
whisper. "You ore going to have another surprise. You wanted to know
what hnd b'come of Hates. Unless T

sons why I obtained the keys of the
house."
"It's a most extraordinary thing."
Ourdon replied. "Now isn't this man
Fenwick one of the last persons in the
world you would credit wilh a love of
music?"
"Oh, I don't know," Venner said.
"You never can tell. But don't let's
talk. We are here to listen more than
anything else. I wish we could gel
a glimpse of the singer."
"I am going to," Gurdon declared.
"Unless I am greatly mistaken, I
have made n discovery too. Oh, I
am not going to take any risk. Do
you s**e thnt mirror opposite the door?
It strikes me that if I get close enough
to look into that I shall be able to
see who is in the room without betraying  my   presence."
Sn saying. Gurdon crept forward
till he was close enough to the mirror
to get ii very good luen of the room
anrt its occupants. He could see a
pale figure in white standing by a
piano;  he  could  see    that    Fenwick

of their being attacked from below,
seeing tint all the servants had gone

risk had to be run. and eo they stood

he said. "Is she anything like the
woman you saw next door? I mean

hanpened to come into the room when
you were talking with the owner.'*
"Why, of course, it is the same

"Then I am sure sbe is Vern's sis-
ler. I'll ck her about it the first
lime I have an opportunity, but be
silent and get a little lower down the
stairs. There iB somebody coming
from the top ol the house. We con

Assuredly there won- sounds emanating from' the top of the house. A
voice wis raised in angry expostulation, followed by ot*h**r voices morose
nnd threatening. As far as the listeners could judge, two men were dragging a third down the stairs neainst
his will. Hut for thnl. the house was

Venner wondered to himself how
many such scenes were taking place
In London nt the same moment.
But he hnd not mii"h time for his
meditation, for the snuffling of feet
came closer. Tliere were no more
sounds of expostulation-now; only
the heavy breathing of three peonle,
os if thc captive hnd c"nsed to strug
ele and was making but a passive
resistance, Then there emerged on
the lamline the figure of the handsome cripple with a guardian on
either side. His face was no longer
distorted with pain; rather was it
white with nn overpowering anger—
his eyes shone like two -poinrts of
flnme. On his right side Venner ond
Gordon recognised the figure of the
mon in the list slippers-jthe mnn
who had been handling the sovereigns
ln Fenwick's rooms. His comrade
was a stranger, though nf (he same
type, nnd it, seemed to Vernier thnt
anyone would h'nve been justified *n
repudiating either of th*>m as on acquaintance, It wns perfectly evident
thnt the handsome cripple rime
ngalnst his will, though he wns strug
gling no longer. Probably the condition of his emaciated frame had
rendered the task of his captors an
easy one. They dragged him now,
limp and exhausted, into the drawing room where Fenwick was seated
and they stood in the doorway awaiting further instructions.
"You needn't stay there," Fenwick
growled. "If I want you I can call,
fou had .better go back to your cards
again."
The two men disappeared up the
stairs, and just for a moment there
was silence in the drawing-room. It
was safe for Venner and his companion now* to creep back to the
drawing-room door and take careful
note of what was going on. With the
aid of a friendly mirror on the opposite side of the room, it was possible
to see and note everything. The hand-
Bome cripple had fnllen into a chair
where he sat huddled in a heap, his
hand to his head, as if some great
physical pain racked him. His heavy
breathing wns the only sound made,
except the steady puffing of Fenwick's
cigar. A fit of anger gripped Venner
for the moment; he would hnve liked
to step in and soundly punish Fenwick for hie brutality. Doubtless the
poor 'rippled frame woe racked with
the pain caused by the' violence of
his lute captors.
But pnder that queer exterior was
a fine spirit. Gradually the cripple,
ceased to quiver and palpitate, gradually he pulled himself up in his
chair and faced his captor. His face
was still deadly white, but it was
hard and set now. There was no sign
of fear about him. He leant forward
and stared Fenwick 'between the
eyes,
"Well, you scoundrel," he said, in
a clear, cold voice. "I should like to
know the meaning of this. I hnv
heard of and read some strnnge outrages in my time, but {b kidnap a
man and keep him prisoner in his
own house is to exceed all bounds of
audacity."
"You appear to be Annoyed," Fenwick said. "Perhaps yon hove not
already leamt who I nm?"
"Oh, I know perfeotly well who
you are," the cripple responded.
"Your nnme is Mark Fenwick, ond

as an American millionaire. Foots
may believe you, but I kmow better
The point is, do you happen to know

"Yes. I know who you ore," Fenwick said with a sardonic smile.

himself over to literary pursuits. As

Poet, book-lover, sportsman, model
landlord, and a keen agriculturist, the
Earl of Crewe, who succeeds Lord
Morley at the India Ouice, has gained the reputation of being one ot the
most versatile as well as broaduiiuded
of peers. In addition, he is one of
the bent-dressed, and tue term
"Crewe's elegance" ia often heard at
6t. Stephen's. He is married to the
daughter of Lord Rosebery who, prior
to tne wedding ill 1899, was known as
Lady "Peggy" Primrose. Lady Crewe
has developed into one of our leading
political hostesses, and has proved of
great service to her husband in his
political work. She is an exceedingly
clever, tactful, and witty woman. On
one occasion at dinner sue noticed her
father seated between Mrs. Asquith
and the late Duchess of Cleveland.
"Look at papa," the said, "sitting
between the nineteenth and twentieth
centuries."
CURED  HER  KIDNEYS
Mrs. John Pettigrew, of Central
Economy, N.S., was practically helpless from rheumatics. She could not
stoop, and her limbs ached so it was
torture for her to be up and around
the house.
As Mrs. Pettigrew put it, "I was
all crippled up. I saw Gin Pills advertised and sent for some, and after
taking only two boxes, am a different
woman. Gin Pills are the only things
that helped me, and I cannot say
too much for them."
If you have that dreadful pain in
the back—if you are tortured with
rheumatism—get Gin Pills at once.

Wat Weak, Nervout, Run-down and
Suffering from Rheumatism —
Dodd't Kidney Pills made her a
New Person.
Beauvallon, Alta. (Special).—Women who are nervous, run-down and
suffering from Rheumatism, cannot
fail to be interested in the case of
Miss Gertrude E. Reyome, of this
place. She was exactly in that condition. To-day she is as she puts it
herself "a new person." Dodd a Kidney Pills cured her. Here is her
statement given for publication.
"My kidney disease started from a
cold two years ago. Rheumatism
set in, and I was weak and nervous,
and in a run-down condition. I was
attended by a doctor who did not
appear to understand my case. Three
boxes of Dodd's Kidney Fills made a
new person of me."
Is not Miss Reyome's condition an
exact description of nine-tenths of
the ailing women of Canada? The
doctor did not understand her case.
It was simple enough. It was Kidney Trouble. And Kidney Disease
is the one great cause of women',-**
troubles. Dodd's Kidney Pills always cure it.

WHAT WILL THE BABY BE 7
Superttitlon Which Veriout Nations
Ult to Safeguard Their Young.
Mnst of us are tuperstitious upon
at least one point, and mothers are
particularly so with respect to their
children.
It is still considered a necessity in
many parts of England that a cbild,
when first leaving the mother's room,
should go upstairs before going down.
lt frequently happens that the room
of the mother is the highest in the
house. When such is the ease the
difficulty is met by the nurse setting
a chair and stepping upon that before she leaves the room.
I There are numerous other super-
1 stitions. Prosperity and long life are
assured to the baby in whose hand
a silver coin or a new-laid egg is
placed, and the same good luck will
he the lot of the infant if it is placed
in a maiden's arms before anyone
else touches it.
The baby should on no account
make its first publio appearance out
of doora unless it it accompanied r>y
a small loaf of bread, an egg, some
salt and a penny. If this precaution
is omitted the grown-up career ot the
baby will be one of poverty and distress. The baby that cries lustily
during the christening ceremony is
sunposed to have good luck.
The Spaniards also believe in determining the baby's walk in life at
once. To do this they place a silver
coin, a silver cross, e sword, a book
and some fruit in front of him and
let him make his choice. It he takes
the coin he will go into business; if
the sword, he will be a soldier; tin*
cross, a priest; tbe book, a scholar,
and the fruit, a farmer. They also
believe that a band of gold or silver,
or even jet, put around baby, will
keep him from harm.
The Truks put a piece of mud,
which has been steeped in hot water,
upon baby's forehead, believing that
the charm? which have been used in
preparing the mind will protect the
child. The Hindus declare that baby
must be called after the name of a
god, for then will the deity be flattered at the frequent use of his name
nnd be induced to think well of the
child. The Arabians name the child
os soon as it is born, as then the
trbesmen will honor it. The Persians string amulets and necklets
around beby's neck, as then the bad
spirits will not touch him.
The Belgians teach their bnhie* to
make the sign of the cross, for they
believe that this will certainly outwit the devil.

"You'll find," said the proprietor of

You muat soothe her down, and not

At last Hon. Richard McBride,
premier of British Columbia, has
contrived to get in the spotlight.
We were wondering whether he and
Hon. W. J. Bowser had got lost in
the crowd or mashed in the crush,

his passage on thc journey across
the big pond. Here is the paragraph
from his letter which culms our excited and wrecked nerves: "I beg to
express my very high upprcciution
of the unf-iiling kindness and courtesy shown by tbe White Star line
and the captain, officers and staff of
tbe Celtic during our trip across the
Atlantic. The ship bas been so
steady that one could hardly think
it was in midocean, and everything
possible was done for our comfort."

FRIDAY, JUNE 9,  1911
Thk Sun ventures the opinion
tlmt there is not a person in tbis
province today who dues not rejoice
because American coke is one of the
commodities on which there is no
duty. Picture to yourself the condition ofthe mining industry in this
district if the smelters were entirely
dependent on domestic coke. Every
blast furnace would be cold, and
every shipping mine closed down,
with thousands of skilled laborers
willing to work out of employment
Reciprocity in coke is good, for
British Columbia today; a few
months hence, when the coke ovens
in the Crow's Nest resume opera
tions, there might be labor disturbances in the States which would
make it advantageous for the American smelters to use Cnnadian coke,
thus benefiting the people of both
countries by the free interahange of
one industrial commodity. And if
recipiocity in coki J*s beneficial to the
two countries, is it not a logic) conclusion to surmise that reciprocity in
fruit, farm products, farm implements and all kinds of manufactured
goods would prove equally advantageous. A high protective tariff
wall between two contiguous friendly nations, speaking the same lan
guage and possessing practically tbe
same ideals, is an unnatural and antiquated institutien.
There is some talk of a federal
election this fall. One thing is certain: If it comet, tbe reciprocal trade agreement will carry
the country by a larger majority
than the Orand Trunk Pacific did a
few years ago.
The treatment of newspapers by
municipalities in different sections
of the country is an interesting
study. Some cities pay the papers
advertising their resurces; others
charge them r. license for perforin
ing the same service.
NEWSPAPER COMMENT
■'It is alleged by friends of reciprocity in the United States that the
farmers who went to Washington to
speak against it traveled in Pullman
cars, and put up at the most expensive hotels. But that is nothing,"
says tbe Toronto Mail and Empire,
I.o, it's nothing wben you know
that they traveled at the expense of
the bankers, insurance men and
trust interests. —Victoria Times.
There is now a church in Montreal
which owns and operates a convalescent home. The spectacle of a church
really doing something may horrify
some of the stricter brethren, but we
incline to think it is calculated to give
the ordinary Canadian a greater interest in that church than he could get
from the best sermons or the most exquisite music or even the largest Wed
nesday evening prayer meetings.—

"There is one custom," said a

In an interview in the Spokesman-
Review on Tueiiday last, Frank M.
Sylvester, assistant general manager
of the Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power company, in
quoted as saying that "the Granby
mines nnd smelter will resume work
with a full force next Monday. So
far as the mines are concerned, the
resumption of operations on that
date is absolutely certain. The
smelter might possibly be iwenty-
four or forty-eight hours later blowing in, but I hardly think it will be.
We now have on the road from
Pennsylvania two special trains entirely loaded with coke, the fir*"t of
which is due to arrive on Saturday
Other trainloads will follow at intervals of a day or two. We Bhnll start
with six furnaces, and if the test
with them proves that the cost of
operating with eastern coke is not
much greater, owing to its higher
grade, than that of running on
Crow's Nest coke, we will put the
other two furnaces also into operation.
'•Our prospecting work on tbe
claims we have under bond npar
Chesaw has not progressed far
enough to enable us to determine
whether they are the kind of properties we want. Our engineers are
constantly in the field investigating
everything which appears to be at
all likely to meet our demands. It
is the settled policy of the company
to go on acquiring properties until
it has an ample supply of all of the
various sorts of ore which we require
to run our smelter at its fullest capacity on the most economical basis.
"The visit of Jay P. Graves, the
vice-president and general manager
of the Granby company, to New
York, where he has been for the
past week, already has borne fruit
iri the issuance of a circular letter
announcing a special meeting of the
stockholders in New York on June
13, forthe purpose of considering
the purchase of Hidden creek properties, which are now held under
an option, expiring June 15. The
circular also states: 'Your directors
expect to he prepared to recommend
the purchase. The latest information bearing upon the subject will
be laid before the meeting, and the
advice of stockholders is desired, as
intimated in the circular under date
of December 30, 11)10.'
"The Hidden creek property is a
large group of claims situated at
Goose Bay, Onservntory inlet, in the
Portland Canal section of northern
British Columbia. It contains tremendous bodies of copper ore, carrying a high excess of iron. Should
the property be taken over by the
Granby company it is the intention
to equip it with a matting plant,
which would produce a matte containing anywhere from 25 to 40 per
cent of copper and carrying a high
excess of iron. This matte would
be shipped to the Granby company's
smelter at Grand ForkB, B.C., where
it would be found very useful in
fluxing the ores of the Phoenix
mineB."

going to the pit have to come early on

Hence ln the case of a popular play
a long queue ot people may be seen at
7 o'clock stretching from tbe pit door
all along the sidewalk, welting for tbe
house to open. Tbey keep their places
very patiently in line, united by a common mood of pleasurable anticipation.
One manager awhile ago made the
experiment of selling reserved seats ln
the pit at tbe usual price, but to this
the pit people objected strenuously on
the ground that they could seldom

find themselves possessed ot that happy combination of money end an evening off which would permit of theater
going and preferred to take their
chances waiting ln line wben the for

Can Be Removed by Toning up tha
Blood, Thus Strengthening
the Nerves
Nervous diseases are, more common
and more serious in the spring than
nt any other time of the year. This
is the opinion of the best medical
authorities after long observation.
Vital changes in the system after
long winter months may cause much
more than "spring weakness," and
the familiar weariness and sellings.
Official records prove that in April
and May neuralgia, St. Vitus dance,
epilepsy and various forms of nerve
disturbances are at their worst, especially among those who have not
reached middle age.
The antiquated custom of taking
purgatives in thc spring is useless,
for thc system really needs strengthening while purgatives make you
weaker. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
have a special action on the blood
and nerves, for they give strength
and have cured not only many forms
of nervous disorders, but also other
spring troubles, such as headaches,
weakness in the limbs, loss ol appetite, trembling of the hands, as well
ns unsightly pimples and skin troubles. Tiny do this because they ac
tually make new, rich, red blood,
which means a return to perfect
health.

The transition from winter's fold to
summer's heat frenurntly mite a strain
upon the system that produces internal
complications, always painfnl and often
serious. A common form of disorder Is
dvsenterv, to which many are prone in
the spring and summer. The very hest

No books sold on train after It Htarta!'*
Tbe newsboy bawled tbis In Amy Curtis' ear. and she lost all tbe young
man aaid eicept tbe words "can't
climb those beastly steps."
Not that abe cured. She was quite)
able to climb tbe little ladder to tbe
npper berth. Her Up curled scornfully.
"Ob, tt doesn't matter In tbe least,
jou know. It waa tbe conductor's
Idea. I assure you. Only In the south,
where I come from, men, as a rule,
■re more obliging."
Sbe picked up ber novel and proceeded to ignore McKean's presence.
He looked at her blankly, then flung
himself down the sleeper to tbe smoking compartment. "Well. I do think
she's a bit harsh!" He pulled out a
paper and tried to forget tbe scorn In
the eyes but recently lifted to meet
his.
In tbe meantime tbe girl in section
7 stared wratbfully at tbe letters in
ber book, which fairly danced before
ber eyes. "A nice beginning for my
trip! 1 never wanted to go to Colo- j
redo Springs anyhow. I bad much
better remained at Bar Harbor tban
to let the Carters Inveigle me Into
coming west."
Wltb this final reflection she commenced to read In earnest, but some-
bow her mind went back to tbe very
disagreeable young man wbo bad disregarded tbe sleeping car conductor's
request that he yield the lower berth
to tbe young woman, wbose Pullman
ticket had been duplicated by a care-
leas employee ln an uptown office. She
could not forget tbe real regret In bis
eyes nor tbe nervous, embarrassed
way ln wblcb be bad smoothed his
hair while be was offering his baiting
explanation. She could not reconcile
this, however, with the fact that he
had declined to climb the little steps
In ber stead. It waa most annoying,
ahe argued, that she could not forget
■ certain fascination which his long.
Arm hand had held for ber and tbe
hair he bad smoothed.
8he could Imagine tbat be bad spent
hours trying to brush out a certain
tendency to crisp curls. Sbe was very
glad there was something that could
defeat him. if tt was notblng more
tban curls, and after deciding ibua ahe
waa more content
She did not see bim again until sbe
entered the diner at dusk. The only
place left for ber waa a single sent nt
■ table meant for four. The three passengers already seated were men. talking business ln rather loud tones. Amy
heaitated. A figure* at tbe table opposite rose auddenly. Tbe very disagreeable young man who bad sentenced
ber to the upper berth was standing
beside her.
"Take my place." be aaid eagerly,
"and I will go over there wltb the
men." He had been occupying a seat
■t one of the small tables, snd a gray
haired woman was sitting opposite
bim.
Amy saw all this at a glance and
with a surprised uplifting of ber eyebrows and a mechanical "Thank you"
accepted tbe sear. Tbe young man had
not yet been served, and sbe realised
that tbe change bad not embarrassed
bim In tbe least
"Quite willing to do things that do
not Incommode bim," she thought
•corn fully.
Tbe young man did not presume upon
the reception of tbis courtesy. Directly after dinner be once more retired to
tb* smoking compartment and Amy
early ordered tbe porter to make ii|.
ber berth. Once tucked anugly away.
■he forgot ber grievance. The steady
clunk-cluuk of tbe wheels waa ■ singular lullaby to which abe soon yielded.
lt seemed as If sbe had not been
■sleep more tbsn three minutes when
■be awoke to tbe most horrible noises
that abe bad ever beard. Wbat bad
happened? Had tbe train run Into a
circus or a Jungle of wild beasts? No;
tbe train waa still moving. Ita unremitting clunk-clunk could be beard at
intervals between tbe awful sounds
which no wassailed ber cars. If It
were not wild beasts, tben maybe aome
one around ber waa dying.
This pretty, carefully reared, ever
protected aouthern girl bud never aeen
■ny one die. and In her Ignorance of
tbis and various otber matters she was
working herself up into a fine frensy.
A particularly deep and agonized roar
waa followed by a sound that waa a
cross between a penny whistle and a
sob. She could stand tbe suspense no
longer. She pushed the tluy button
■nd. carefully arranging tbe curtains,
■tuck out ber head to meet the look of
Inquiry In the porter'a black face. Dp
■nd down lbe car ahe gave ■ hasty
glance. Apparently no one else realised the tragedy that waa going on
ao cloae at band, for no otber curtains
were swaying, no other heads were
thrust out.
"Sumfln you want, miss?"
"Why-why.   don't   you   hear   tbat
dreadful noise?" ahe said.   "I think
aome one ln tbe berth next to me la
dying."
In the dim light abe could see the
darky's teeth gleam Ivory white ln a
grin that reached from ear to ear.
"It's Just the gentleman In the lower berth, mlaa, snoring. I will wait*
bim up. Soon «a he rolls over hell
stop."
Amy Jerked in her head as if the porter had struck ber. Sbe could feel
bim switch aside tbe curtains below
her. Two masculine voices were
wafted toward ber, tben tbe sound of
a deep grunt that waa decidedly masculine—und silence.
Up in ber eyrie Amy lay. still flushing hotly with mortification. She
knew tbat porter would tell everybody'
on the train next morning. She wished
sbe could change care. Then suddenly
from the berth below the bated sound
rose again. Evidently there waa no
respite from this Infliction, and. oddly
enough, abe felt herself pitying tbe
man wbo waa responsible for It It
was really a disease, abe decided, and
he was so young too!
The next morning she met him face
to face ln the dining car. Her cheek*
were flooded wltb Crimson. Sbe knew
by tbe quizzical light ln hla eyea tbat
he had beard of her mistake, and undoubtedly every one on tbe car knew it
by this time and would consider lt k
fine Joke.
She ate her breakfast ln ■ resentful
humor. Sbe felt reckless and miserable, and It may have been this mood
wblcb caused her to sway uncertainly
as she crossed from tbe diner back to
tbe sleeper. Sbe reached out a hand to
steady herself against tbe side of tbe
vestibule. Suddenly It seemed to ber
as if a sharp, redbot iron bad been
thrust Into ber flnger tip and run up to
her shoulder. She tried to draw away
her band as a child does from a bot
store, but something beld It tight, nnd
tben she awoke to the truth. The train
bad been swinging around a curve, and
the iron plaits, or folds, of the vestibule, left uncovered by a careless employee, bad opeued Just far enough to
admit ber finger and then bad closed
upon It again. She was beld as ln ■
vise, and ber calls for assistance could
not be heard above tbe roar of tbe
train. And so it happened that the
"hateful young man" came upon ber,
wblte lipped and fainting. When tbey
bad pried tbe band loose be carried ner
unconscious figure into the vacant
drawing room. The conductor cam*
hurrying up, grestly perturbed over tb*
accident, wblcb meant a damage suit
tor the company. He turned to tb*
porter.
"Hustle through th* train and find
out whether there la a physician on
board."
Tbe young man spoke sharply.   "I
am ■ physician.  Porter, bring me that
long,   narrow  black   bag   from   my j
berth."
And sn It happened when Amy woke I
up il n'us to bnd the hateful young I
man deftly bandaging liei- Injured
bund. Tbe drawing room wus placed
ut her disposal by tbe anxious conductor, and tbe entire train force waa
on Its knees before ber. Tbe uncovered vestibule meant tbat aome employee's bead would fall Into tbe basket
Toward noon. In spite of tbe terrific
psln lu her crushed finger. Amy commenced to feel drowsy, thanks to the
mild narcotic which Dr. McKeuu hud
administered. Ae plumped up the pillows for her. and sbe murmured drowsily. "I didn't sleep very well lust
nlgbt"
McKeun bit bis lip. "I was afraid
you wouldu't. Tbat was tbe worst
part of ray having to put Mr. Carter
in tbe berth wltb you. but 1 couldn't
get bim upotber lower In tbe cur. und
he stubbornly refused to buy up a
drawing room."
Amy felt auddenly wide awake.
"Mr. Carter!   Why, didn't yon"-
"l.nrd. no! You didn't think I was
raising the roof of my berth, did yuu?
Mr, Carter hus lieen nt a siiniturltim
Just eust of llarrlsbiirg. He Is a patient of my father's, aod bla people
asked uie to pick bim up and bring
blni on to C .dorado Springs, where 1
um visiting for a week or so. That's
what I was trying to tell you laat
night"
A audden light dawned on Amy.
"Oh. It'a all the fault of tbat newsboy!
I am going to tbe Carters myself.
They're giving a bouse party."
"Yea. I know." said McKeun. "I
saw your name on your luggage. Rut
now you're going to sleep, and If you
don't mind 1 shnll sit here beside you
und see you ure not rocked oft when
we make a fast run."
Amy dropped back weakly amons
the pillows. "No, 1 don't mind. 1 will
be only too glad to have—you—stsy."
Suddenly she raised her heavy eyelids.
"But promise tne you will never tell—
whnt—I snid to tbe porter last night"
Dr. McKean's eyea twinkled. 1

THE USEFUL CASSEROLE.
Hew te Mak* Cheap Diahaa Pleasing
to th* Palate.
Tli* casserole la « utensil which
should be known ln tb* American
kitchen.
Awhile ago the casserole was an expensive Imported dish. Now lt is
made In thia country and can be
bought for a small sum. Any fireproof earthenware dlah, large or small,
with a cover la ■ casserole or may
serve In the place of one. Tbe food
cooked in the casserole Is sent to the
table In the same dlah and haa won
by tbe process of cooking a savori-
ness it could hardly gain ln any other
way.
To make cheap dishes pleasing to
tbe palate 1b the object of housekeepers at all tlmea, but especially now,
wben tbe cruel rise in prices sends us
all searching for ways ln which to
keep our bills down without letting
our families feel they are being pinched ln their food supply. In this effort
the casserole Is of distinct service.
Take, for instance, a casserole of
veal. For this you may use tbe leg
pieces or nny otber cheap lean portions. Cutlet Is altogether too good
and too expensive. You put tbe casserole on top of the stove and fry ln it
an onion ln a little dripping and when
this Is hot lay In the slices of meat
and turn tbem until tbeir surfaces are
lightly seared. Yon arrange the meat
and sliced or stewed tomatoes In alternate layers, pour in a cup of weak
gravy, cover your casserole and put lt
iu tbe oven and leave lt tbere for an
hour and a half to two hours.
Try the meat from time to time
witb a fork to see lt It Is tender. If
you choose to add a few sliced mushrooms to the dish you may do lt but
lt ts good without these. At the last
turn off the gravy, put It In a saucepan and thicken it wltb browned flour,
add a little kitchen bouquet pour back
over tbe meat in the casserole, leave
this ln the oven five minutes and send
to the table.
The same plan may be followed wltb
lamb or with liver. Use lamb's liver
instead of calf's liver, If you really
wlsb to economize, and fry tbe onion
with two or three slices of bucon,
searing the liver ln tbe bacon fat If
you choose you may add balls or dice
of potatoes to the dish, parboiling
them nnd putting tbem Into the dish
about half an hour before you take lt
from the oven.

IDEAL CITY.
Wonderful Changes Predicted By an
Englishman *f Not*.
"Light and energy will be conveyed
by electricity. Gasoline and oxygen
will supply heat. Liquid air will keep
up refrigeration in every larder. In
addition to heat radiators there will
be oold radiators, which will enable
eaoh uuuse to be kept ut the required
temperature."
Such is the beginning of some most
interesting predictions concerning our
future that were recently made by Eugene Hanard at the international town
planning conference held in Loudon,
Eng. Ivir. Hanard's forecast of what
the ideal city of the Doming years will
be like is well worth reading, even
though one may be a trills- skeptical
concerning some ot tile great things
outlined.
"By this power," he declares, referring to control of temperature in
our dwellings, "it will be possible to
provide in euch house one or more
nealth chambers closed by close tit-
ting double windows mid doors in
»ii._m tue overworked occupant on
his return from town will Snd ull the
hygienic conditions which now he can
obtain only by taking an annual holiday.
"Glass verandas of various shapes
joined together and with covered footpaths, according to standard models,
will shelter pedestrians against rain,
and the normal height of buildings
will be exactly the width of the street.
The roofs of houses will be platforms
Ufoii wiuoti siiiiiij Uower beds and verdant shrubberies could be laid out, as
they would be the landing stages ior
aeroplanes.
"When this progress shall have been
accomplished the physiognomy of
towns will tie changed. All terraces
will have become landing stages for
flying automobiles. Aviators will be
able to Sy from one terrace to anoth-
_,, fituiliug and lUiiuiug us tney ptiSse.
The natural consequence of this new
state of things will be thst each'
building will hove to be furnished
with big elevators curable to raising
machines when they ure ready to start
snd taking them buck to the garage
on their return. Houses of this de-
script.oil win uiso De used to house
motor cars.
"Finally the town oi the future will
be traversed by large rudiuting thoroughfares, occupied partly by raised
platforms continually moving, which
will insure ra;>id communication between the different "u*». These pint-
forms will be U*r **d by large revolving crossways ••.. tiie intersection
of the main roads. Large parks and
flower gardens as residence and pleasure resorts will be laid out in various
parts of the town."

for special services in South Africa.
Since that time his career has been
one of increasing prestige at the Wur
Utlice till his retirement last year.
Was Too   Energetic.
Many stories ure told of the ready
wit and humor ol Sir Rufua Isaacs,
Attorney-General of Grent Britain,
who has been the guest ut dinner in
London of the Maccabueuns, the influential society ol Jewish prolessiunal
men which delights to honor distinguished members of the Jewish race.
Once, as a member of the Junior
Bur, he wus marching boldly through
St. Stephen's Palace yard, when the
officer on duty confronted him. "Excuse me, yir, but ure yuu a member*-"
"Nol yet." wm the reply, "but 1 am
going lo lie soon." "1 hope you will,
air," snid the policeman, "but, meanwhile, would you mind going round
the other way?" "Thut 'meanwhile',"
Sir liulus has since mid, in telling
the story, "lusted twelve years," ami
tben Reading accepted Iiiui as ita
member.
When about six years old Sir Rufu-
wus sent with a brother a year his
senior to a school at Brussels. About
a fortnight afterwards the schoolmaster urgently requested their father to
come over, and on the parent's arrival
explained tbut his boys were two ol
the brightest and most intelligent
lads imaginable, but that, unlortun-
ute.y. ho could not keep both, their
energy being too mu-li lor bun.
Whereupon Ruius was removed to another school on the other side ol
Brussels, and peace was restored.

Hyomei
The Breatheablu Remedy for Catarrh.
The rational wny to combat catarrh
is tlio Hyomei wuy, vi/.., by breathing
Scientists for years have neon agreed
on this point, but failed to get an antiseptic strong enough to kill catarrh
germs and not destiny the tissues nf

nounced High-nine.)

healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through tlie inhaler over tho iiillamed
and germ-ridden membrane four or
five times a day, and in a few tlayx the
germs will disappear.
A complete   Hyomei outfit, including the inhaler, costs 41.00, and extra

50 rent.    Obtainable from your drug-
