Eilitor Grand Forks Sun
I was informed recently that there
a general impression everywhere
that Grand Forks is destined to become the largest city in the interior of
British Columbia, and that it has already started on its career of pros
perity. Some people will be sure to
rush to the conclusion that the pres
ent condition of affairs is due wholly
to the work of dealers in real estate,
but I think it can be clearly shown that
what such people will assume tu be the
uause of the rise iu values is merely
an effect, and that the real estate
men, instead of being the cause of an
artificial boom, are really shrewd ob
servers who have discovered that
Grand Forks is placed iu such a posi
tion that it must uf necessity become
the largest and most prosperous city
in the interior of British Columbia,
Grand Forks has many resources,
but 1 will deal at present with the
t iwn as a railwy centre It ia known
that the new southern line of the C.
P. R., which will not touch the present main line between Winnipeg and
Hope, and which, even from Hope
into Vancover, will share a double
track with that line, will be several
huupred miles shorter than the pres
ent main liue. When it is completed
two passenger traius might leave Win
nrpeg for Vancouver at the same time,
and the one going by Grand Forks
would bc in Vancouver twenty hours
before the one going by Revelstoke.
This difference is due, not only to
the shortness of the distance, but also
to the superiority of the grade. Grand
Forks will be the chief point in the
interior of British Columbia on this
line, and have large railway shops
What has made Revelstoke a town of
three or four thousand inhabitants'?
This one thing that 1 have mentioned
It is a C.P.U. railway town, and
nothing else, unless the presence uf a
few prospeceors among the hills around
it be takeu into consideration. What
is, therefore, the sole source of the
prosperity of Revelstoke Is merely one
item in the list of the resources of
Grand Forks.
Grand Forks is, however, a dvision-
al point on the Great Northern also.
Years ago, in the old Yale hotel, Mr.
Kennedy, chief engineer of the V„ V.
■k K.Jrailway, showed me on a map a
short route by which the Great North
ern would come in time. This route
was j.ist south of the United States
boundary, and led from Bonner's
I Ferry, or near it, west to the line on
| which Northport is situated, and
thence on tu Grand Forks. From lion
| tier's Ferry to Vancouver by way of
Grand Forks it will be at least two
hundred miles shorter than from Bon
' ner's Ferry to Seattle by way of Spo-
' kane. But the distance is not the
onlv thing to be considered. The
gra le will bo altogether superior For
three days thia winter the Great
Northern could not run a train over
the Ca. cades because the snuw was
fourteen feet deep Can any one for
a moment suppose that they will send
their through trains by a route hundreds of miles longer, and of much
greater altitude, after thoir new route
to the sea through Grand Forks is
finished! They will undoubtedly build
shops at Grand Forks also and have a
continuous succession of trains of
trains passing through the valley
within a few years.
There is a strong probability also
that the Canadian Northern will build
through Grand Forks, coining in by
way of the North Fork. They aro now
building frnm Kamloops to Vernon,
and on to Luiuby, whicli is nut very
far from the source uf the Notth Fork
Last July I had an interview with Sir
Donald Mann in his own office in Toronto, and pointed out that the route
from Lumby to Grand Forks on   the
map, strongly impressing him with the
idea that thut was the only feasible
route to take in extending their road
east to the Crow's Nest Pass, where
they will connect with the line which
they are building ft om the east to
that pass, thus securing a southern
short liue in order to compete with
the Canadian Pacific.
The Grand Trunk Pacific must also
secure a southern short line, aa their
line passes through the Yellowhead
pass, which is about two hundred
miles north of the Kicking Horse
pass, through which the present main
line of the C.P.R. passes. TheCanadian Northern g< ei through the Yel
lowhead pass also. These two lines
can never compete with the Canadian
Paciflo unless they seeure southern
short lines, and both are bent on securing them. The Grand Trunk Pacific has men out now exploring for a
southern road through the Crow's
Nest Pass. They are in close alliance
wirh the Great Northern railway, and
will undoubtedly use the tracks of
that company in some places. They
must pass through the valley at Grand
Forks There is no other way by
which they can go. The passage
through the mountains at (irand
Forks is the best between the Oregon
boundary at the south and the main
line of the CPR at the north.

Trick That Makes a Yellow Stone Appear Clear Blue White
Let me show you a little trick lhal
1 would advise you not to put Into
practice, said a jewel fancier to a
number ot friends the other day.
The conversation had turned to diamonds during the midday luncheon,
and the expert had been holding forth
on his favorite subject. The little
group of St. I,ous!ans were interest
ed still more when the speaker drew
a big solitaire from his finger an,,
beckoned a waitress across the cafe
Bring me a glass of water and an
Indelible pencil, said ho when the
servitor came over to the table.
This Is a trick 'hat Is essentially
crooked, said the jewel fancier, and
will get by nine times out of ten even
when the examiner is an expert at
judging stones and detecting trier.-
ery. It will make a yellow off color
diamond look like a stone of the very
flrst water. Pawnbrokers innumerable have been fooled by this same
trick, as it Is extremely difficult lo
detect even with a powerful glass.
The expert took the pencil and allowed the lead to dissolve ln the glass
of water, ln a couple of minutes the
water was as blue as Indigo water.
Now watch, said the man who kntty
the lore of jewels.
Ite took the ring and dropped it Into
the glass. Ils brilliancy was dimmed
by the hazy, bluish water until it
looked like a dead stone.
Now, you noted, said the demonstrator, that the diamond I placed in
there was a bit yellow. It will be _.
clear bluish white when it comes oui
of its bath.
At the end of a minute the atom,
was taken out. The top of the gem
was dried with a soft handkerchief and
then the ring was waved to and fro
for a few minutes. It was held up
for inspection. Not a gleam of yellow was to be seen. The stone was
apparently a magnificent blue white
1 gem that any one would be proud to
I own and loathe to pledge.
■ It is the blue pigment deposited on
the back of the stone that has made
the difference, said the jewel expert.
The deposit is so filmy that a strong
glass cannot detect it. You cannot
see lt from the rear of the mounting
and only a bath of alcohol will remov,
It. It will stay on the gem for weeks
If it Is not removed in that way. It
used to be a favorite trick of many
folks who now and again had to put
a diamond Into the hands of a pawnbroker.
The trick is called doctoring a stone
but as I said ln the beginning, I would
not advise you to try it. I don't
know what the law on such matters
Is ln Missouri, but there are states
where a person convicted of such an
offense would serve a long penitentiary term for his cleverness.
The Brick and the Rose
A friend of ours travelling ln Ireland stopped for a drink of milk at a
wblte cottage with a thatched roof,
and as he sipped his refreshment, ha
noted on a centre table, under a glass
dome, a brick witb a faded rose upon
the top of lt.
Why do you cherish in this way, our
friend said to his host, that common
brick and that dead rose?
Shure, sir, waa the reply, there's a
certain memory attachln' to them. t~Si
you. Bee this big dent In my head*!
Well, lt was made with that brick.
But the rose? said our friend.
His host smiled quietly. The rose
he remarked, is off the grave of tho
man tbat threw the brick.

Turning a Greedy Water evil Into a
Trussed up Mummy
It is known that a crocodile will
sometimes leave a liver stocked with
food, explore for miles an unsuitable
tributary, then wander inland until it
finds a pool.
ln this way three crocodiles one?
found their way to Talping lake, in
tbe Malay peninsula. So long as they
confined their attention to the fish and
au occasional duck no one objected
to their presence, but when one of
them began to take sheep off the bank
as they came down to drink lt was
felt that the saurians ought to be exterminated, and an Englishman and
his servant made the attempt.
Obtaining a dugout, they paddled
Into deep water. The servant was
already barefooted und the Englishman himself took off his shoes and
stockings so that his bare feet might
have as good a hold as possible on the
smooth bottom of the canoe. A bait
was attached to a heavy rattan, and
soon a tug and a plunge indicated that
the crocodile was fast to one end. Immediately the canoe began to move
through the water. After a protracted struggle the Englishman managed to get the crocodile within a few
yards of the canoe. At one moment
the open jaws would surge out of the
broken water ahd snap together ln
unpleasant proximity to the men's
legs; the next moment the heavy tail
would swing free of the water and
with the weight ot a falling pole would
hit the side of the canoe a blow that
made it shiver.
As the crocodile surged close to the
canoe and the open mouth appeared
above the water the servant sllppel
a noose of stout cord over the upper
jaw and pulled it tight some six Inches
behind the point of Its nostrils. Then
with a quick turn of the wrist, he
s.tppetl the slack ot the cord round
under the lower jaw. He drew the
cord tight, and the teeth of each jaw
pressed home into the sockets of the
other. The servant now grasped the
point of the long, narrow head with
one hand and with the other rapidly
wound the cord round the clinched
Another noose was slipped over a
fore leg. It pulled tho leg up to
the animal's side. The servant slipped the line over the creature's back
and caught up the other fore leg.
Then he noosed and tied together the
hind legs.
The effect he had achieved was wonderful. In a few minutes he had
transformed a ravening water devil
Into a trussed up mummy, and his
only weapon had been three pieces
of box cord.
The beast was afterwards dispatched, and the servant received ths
government  reward.
Cape Cod's Treacherous Shoals and

Secrets ot the sands of Cape Cod
are constantly being disclosed by the
sea. In the many storm tides that

Rlddlea Him With  Revolver Bullets
on Account ef Hla Violent
In Paris, a cabinetmaker, who Is
named Francois Delarue has been
killed by his wife, a woman suffering
from tuberculosis, because, as she declares, his violent temper prevented
her from dying in peace.
The woman Delarue, whose case had
become hopeless, has for the last tew
months been confined to bed.
Repeated violent disputes arose between her and her husband, who complained that his mother-in-law, whose
services had heen requisitioned when
the wife was no longer able to attend
to her household duties, neglected
When Delarue found that Ms supper was not prepared, there was another violent scene.
During the night the mother-in-law
was awakened by loud reports pillowed by frantic cries emanating from' the
sick woman's bed.
Delarue'e dead body, riddled wilh
bullets, was then found lying hy the
side of his wife, who had fired at him
tour times with a revolver..
The woman, who ls eemtdellrlous
from excitement, ls not expected to
live many days. No proceedings of
any kind will therefore, be Instituted against her.

A Famoua Cook's Lament on the
Death of Hla Royal Master
The most successful book that was
published by William Harrison Aim-
worth during his flrst year of business
says Mr. S. M. Ellis in his biography
of the English author and publisher,
was a cookbook. It was "The
French Cook," by I.ouls Eustache
Ude, the Oil Bias of the kitchen. —
This unique study of the culinary
art brought iu a handsome sum to the
astute young publisher who had purchased the copyright and the cook
was ln the hands of every gourmet ln
Ude had been chef of Louis XVL. of
Mme. Letlzla Bonaparte and then of
the Earl of Setton, at a salary of 300
guineas a year. At another time he
presided over the culinary department
of the CrockfordB, but his favorite
master was Frederick, duke of York.
When the royal gormand died his be-
renved chef pathetically  ejaculated:

Gentle Reminder
It was midnight. The man had entered the house as quietly as possible.
His shoes made some noise. He had
just reached the door of the bedroom
when he heard some one moving ln
the bed as if about to get up, and he
paused. The sound ot a woman's
voice floated to his ears.
If you don't take your boots off
when yon -come into this house, it
said, there's going to be trouble, and
a whole lot of lt. Here It's been
raining for three hours, and you dare
to tramp over my carpets with your
muddy boots on! Go downstairs and
take them off this minute! ,
He went downstairs without a word,
but he didn't take off his boots. Instead he went straight out Into the
night again, and the pal who was
waiting for him saw a tear glisten in
his eye.
I can't rob that house, he said. It

Will Have Better Facilities In Future
During the coming winter the officers ln charge ot the Brazeau and
Athabaska divisions of the Rocky
Mountains forest, reserve propose to
make "administrative Bite" surveys at
different points on the Reserves. Upon these sites lt Is proposed to ere.t
ranger and look-out stations which
will be no farther apart than one day's
trln by pack train, along the primary
trail system ot the Brazeau Reserve.
It is the Intention to erect, this winter,
at least three or four log cabins for
the rangers. A telephone system
is also being planned whereby these
Ranger Stations will be connected
by telephone to the forest supervisor's office. This office ls 'centrally
located and telephone Hues will run
tn from all directions, much ln the
manner ot the spokes of a wheel with
the central office as the hub.
This region ts one of the richest

under construction, will be shipping
thousands of tons daily.
With the future development of
this country, the' timber must be preserved. This region has once been
forested with very valuable timher.
which has largely been destroyed by
fires in the past. There ls still an
abundant supply of niine-prop timber,
however, and the whole region Is
green with young lodgepole pine from
ten to thirty years ln age. If preserved from fire this will be en invaluable asset to the country, both
for economic uses and as protection

A Scheme That Is said to Improve the
Sense of Smell
The most striking fact connected
with my school career, said the prep
school graduate was a peculiar ability on the part of our commandant to
detect the faintest odor of smoke ln
a room on his dally Inspection. The
school I attended waB of the military
\artety, and Bmoklng was a rather
serious offence. No matter how
much a room had been aired or fanne-J
with wet tow Ms previous to the Inspection, the offender was always caught.
After I had received my flnlsfilni;
touches and become a citizen I made
so bold as to Inquire from what peculiar dispensation of providence the
ability waa given to detect one mol.v
cule of smoke ln a hundred cubic
feet of pure -tlr. The old boy smlleJ
and binding me to secrecy, Imparted
the reason of bis wonderful ability.
Then he took me to a boy's vacated
room and told me to wet my finger
and rub my nostrils with it and strtff.
Lo and behold, where before ther.
Beemed no talit ln the atmosphere
was now detected that smell of old tobacco smoke! Since then I bave
taught school myself and hava ussd
the trick occasionally, entirely for experimental purposes, however.
I have also sought the scientific explanation, but with little success. It
may, however, be somewhat analogous
to the process, of tasting. You know
it Is Impossible to taste anything that
Is not dissolved ln water or Is not a
liquid itself. So the moisture on the
nostrils must carry the smaller particles of smoke ln a more or less damp
state to the olfactory nerve ends and
thus make the smell more apparent.
At least this is the only explanation
I have ever found for the phenomenon.
The same thing can also be used
for detecting other odors and I have
found lt useful on a number of occasions for this purpose, both in analytical chemistry, when only a small particle of a certain material ls avail-
abb for analysis and In detecting
faint perfume from flowers that arc-
ordinarily quite odorless.

Use Your Influence for
Concrete Roads
There's no need to point
out the advantages of
good roads.
It used to be that there was little choice.
Macadam for the country and smaller cities was
the only material used. Then, twenty years
ago concrete was introduced. And for these
twenty years oonersts has been proving
It is now acknowledged to be one of the
best known materials for roads or for street
pavements—to be as far superior to ordinary
macadam as macadam is superiutto sand.
Estimating the Cost.
It is not the first cost of a road that determines it'srralcost; nor is it the first six months
of service that determines whether it's a good
road or a poor one.
The only ture way to find out what a road
has cost, is to add to the first cost all that is
spent for repairs in fifteen or twenty yeart.
Now, that's where concrete roads win
every argument—their first cost is practically
their only cost j they require little or no upkeep
The kind of good road,
however, is another
cost.    Concrete,  instead of  needing repair,
actually becomes stronger with age.

railway policy appears to be
of vast benefit to the railway
promoters. This week Sir
Donald Mann did a great
stroke of business at Victoria,
as a result of which the assets
of the province are mortgaged
for a good many future generations. Guaranteeing the
bonds and interest of railway
to the extent of $35,000 a
mile is too serious a proposition to be entered into lightly,
yet that is exactly what the
government has done. A perusal of Premier McBride's
railway bills leads one to the
conclusion that everything the
Canadian overlooked in this
province in its first bargaiu
with the government it has secured in its latest coud.
KIUDIY, KtHRU.lRY'   14,  11.18
The proposed changes in
the land laws ofthe province,
viewed superficially, appear to
improve on the old laws; yet
tliey embody provisions that
might easily work an injustice
to citizens not friendly to the
government, especially if they
were administered by an official of unscrupulous principles. The rejection of the
system of the past in charg-
ikg for pre-empted crown
lands, and offering instead free
holdings to settlers, who will
be required to pay merely the
$2 record fee aud $10 for
crown grant, will be generally approved. The standard
size of holdings will continue
to be 160 acres. The minister cf lands, however, is given
the power to decide as to the
size of any individual preemption or to reject an application entirely if such action
appears to him in the public interest. The minister is
also empowered to allot preemptions if it is deemed in
the public interest even in
such reserved localities as the
provincial parks. This is
cloth ng this official with too
much discretionary power—
power that, when wielded by
an unscrupulous politician,
might prove t.angeious, as
well as defeat the enus of justice. Tun   Miinir<.»  Rnosters, nni* yesr

The advertising agents for
Premier Borden's emergency
contribution are working overtime. Nearly every day the
press dispatches inform us
that a mysterious foreign air-
.ship is hovering over England, As only two aircraft
have ever crossed the English
channel, it would appear that
any foreign airships now
sailing over England are supernatural, as well as mysterious. In the good old days,
when it cost 50 cents per
thousand ems to set type, rot
of this description could not
have found its way into the
colnmnsof a respectable newspaper.
A number of our Conservative contemporaries, always
seeking an opportunity to flatter a government which keeps
them alive, now say that if
Premior McBride had done
nothing else than to secure the
passage of the audit bill he
would be entitled to a seat
among the immortals. Had
the premier brought in this
measure ten years ago, all the
people ofthe province might
have joined in singing his
praises; but now, after the
horses have been stolen, there
is no sense in becoming enraptured over the locking of
the stable door.

Farmers Need Better Mar
ketine; Facilities
Lieut.-Cnl. Olunop, the well-
known fruit grower of Rock Creek,
who has spent a number of years in
f* the province and bas al-aays taken a
leading part in trying to improve
the lot of the rancher, in a recent
nterview in Vancouver is quitted
as follows:
"It is to be hoped the commission
which is inquiring into iiuricultura
conditions in this province will sue
ceed in finding out what is the real
trouble, and suggest plans for lin
proving the same. There is not the
least doubt but that farming in tbe
province is in a bad way, and so far
most of the euggestiens made before
the commission are beside the mark.
"It is idle to talk about a back-to-
tbe-land movement. The great need
in British Columbia today is Dot to
put more people on the land, but to
assist those who are already there,
Many of tbe latter are not sucoeed
ing. At the outset they were confronted by tbe big handicap of hav-
ing to clear tbeir land. Now tbey
have no means of bringing tbeir
produce to tbe city market, and last
season the spectacle was common of
good fruit sunh as peaches and apples rotting on the ground. Many of
the interior farmers have today a p.

"Various plans have been tried to
relieve the situation. One nf them
was the co-operative plan of marketing. It was tried in my district, and
did not work. At many points in
the Okanagan canneries have been
established aa a means of disposing
of the surplus fruit. I believe means
could be evolved by which the fruit
could he put wilhin the reach of .the
city market to the benefit of both
tbe eity consumer and the-producer, and if so, this would be a
more profitable means of disposing
of it than sending it lo ihecanneri'-s.
Witb any such plan there should be
a rule whereby only the hest fruit
should be shipped to the city, tor

is a matter which might well engage

Robert Lawson Praises the
Editor Grand Forks Sun.
Who are the greater menace to the
district—the people who are busy creating a living out of that which nature
has provided, or thorns who are busy
trying to get that which others have
created! The Doukhobors can certainly be classed with the first mentioned type The Gazette seems to
take a particular delight in letting the
people know who has- classed them as
anarchists, This paper also appears tn I
have a grudge against the first-mentioned class, for it accuses the farmers of sitting at home in their easy
chairs and not paying tke price for
community profit and prosperity.
This, they claim, is the modern form
of graft. Now, if the first mentioned
class is accused of modern graft, what
name wonld you give the form of
graft the second mentioned class (nf
which there are a great deal too many
to insure a healhy condition of affairs)
is practicing? Even if the Doukhobors
have been called anarchists, I wuuld
a great deal sooner live among them
than  I would among this class.
As far as the first-mentioned class
being inexcusable and ignoble, I do not
think they need worry about that, for
tbe opinion of a man who would write
sucb an article as the one in the Gazette of January 4 does not go very
1 think it would be hard to improve on Mt. Blakemore's report on
the Douklinboi'S. It seems to me that
anyone who wants to see justice done
will say that it is better to try to lead
these people than to drive them, especially a people of such a quiet and ;
kind disposition. This report was an
agreeable sun-rise to me. I know
these people as well as sny man, as I
live among them. The Doukhobors
are not the town-boosting class.
Bnt   they   are a menace to neither'
the town nor the vicinity, the
laborer nor the producer. They do
not work for any less than the av
ei-age wages, and they can not control
the market; but if they do sell some
things locally a little cheaper, the
consumer is benefited by it. I would
like some one to show me any place in
the vulley that shows more signs of
prosperity and development than are
lo be fouud in the Doukhobor colony.
These peop e, in buying their supplies,
are doing exactly what everybody else
is doing— buying wherever they can
buy the cheapest, and that is every*
body's privilege, or should be. IVubit
bly the people who antagenize the
Doukhobors are like the preacher who
told his congregation not to dp as he
did, but to do as he told them. Some
of them be.
As tar as being half civilized and below our standard is concerned, I am
sure the Doukhobors exhibit inure pf
the twentieth century ideas than the
Gazette and its wishes do. They can
not be carried away by the loyalty-
cry, or induced to shoulder the rifle
to shoot their fellow man. Mr. Blake-
more never hinted ur thought of such
a thing us changing any laws tu suit
the Doukhobors, but ddvised the gov
ernment to try and come to some satisfactory arrangement so that they
wuuld comply with the present laws.

Newspaper Law
1. A postmaster is required to give
notice by letter (returning the paper
does not answer the law) when a sub
scriher does not take his paper out of
the postofliee, and state the reason for
its not being taken. Any neglect to
do so makes the postmaster responsi
ble to the publisher for payments.
2. If any person orders his paper
discontinued he must pay all arrearages, or the publishers may continue
to send it until payments are made,
and collect the whole amount whether
the paper is taken from the oflice or
not. There can be no legal discontinuance until payment is made.
... Any person who takes a paper
out of the post office, whether directed
to his name or not, or whether he has
subscribed or not, is responsible fnr
the pay.
4. If a subscriber orders his papS!
stopped and the publisher continues tn
send it, the subscriber is bound tn
pay for it if he takes it out of the

ground that a man must pay for what

Mr. Thos. D. Walsh, Plctou, N.S.,
writes:—"Two years ago my wife took
to her bed after suffering for a long

She was not able to stand on hev

doctor's medicine was no benefit whatever, that we could see. Sometlm.s
lier legs would swell considerably.
Reading about a woman In similar
condition being cured by Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills, we purchased two
boxes and when these were used she
was able to sit up. With three more
boxes she was restored to health and
doing her own housework.

pills all that ls claimed for them. I

A Bridge of Ants
A species of ants which spin silk
Is common in hot countries. The
ants nest ln trees, binding the leaves
together to mako their nests. The
silk used tor bis purpose Is not secreted by the adult ants, but by the larvae. In order to attach the silken
threads and draw the leaves together
the ants must carry thc larvae about
from leaf to leaf. When two distant
leaves are to be drawn together a remarkable method ls employed. Five
or six ants form a chain bridging the
gap between the leaves, each gripping
the waist of another In its mandibles.
A number ot such chains will co-operate In bringing two leaves together.

sve never met before is apt to be a
ttie stiff, and-for a ion moments the
oung man showed embarrassment;
hen be muttered s few incoherent
othlngs, took bis seat, attached tbe
lower, and the two sped away.  The
ormallty of a flrst meeting soon dlsap-
learcd.  Cousin Charlie asked a great
nany questions sbout bis relatives, tbe
tuchluclosscs, and Cousin Sue asked
i great many about his branch of the
amlly, the Chambcrlins.   He was es

that there wns an uneasiness tn her

tbougb evidently much pleased at having bis cousId wltb him, appeared
especially distracted. Little Frank
seemed Inclined to do a good deal ot

of tbe hosts was mingled wltb a good

looked frightened, and Cousin Delia
turned red In tbe face. No reference
was made to tbe boy's bavlng called
Delia Mollie, and In time tho equanimity of the party returned. After dinner
lt was still day, for It was the season
when tho twilights were long, and all
went on to tho veranda.
"Charlie," said Delia, "you bad better show Cousin Sue the grounds before It is dark."
"Oh, 1 wouldu't think of separating
s newly married couple. Come wltb
us Cousin Delia," said Miss Auchln-
Several ot the party turned tbeir
backs at tbis reply, and it looked to
the guest that it was for a reason.
Tbere was something going on underneath this cousinly welcome that mystified Miss Aucblncloss. Cousin Delia
excused herself on tbe ground tbat sbo
was obliged to get a letter written to
be sent out before the mall closed, lt
did not seem to Miss Auchlncloss tbat
tbere was anything husbandly and
wifely between ber nod Charlie. Tbey
bad been married but a abort time,
and even between couples who hnve
lived together for years there ls a certain something that marks tbem as
belonging to each other. Nevertheless
while Miss Auchlncloss noticed tbe absence of tbls something It did not occur to her tbat tbe couple were anything but man and wife.
"Cousin Delia," sbe said to Charlie as
tbey strolled away together, "looks
enougb like you to be your sister."
"I hnve never seen a married couple
resemble each other as you two do."
"Y-e-s; several persons bavo spoken
of that 1 don't see lt at all," replied
Cbarlie, tben turned the subject
He led Miss Auchlncloss about tbe
grounds wbich covered a dozen acres
attractively laid out, a rivulet running
through lt spanned by rustle bridges
and bere and there broadened into a
flsb or a duck pond. As tbey strolled
along together Charlie seemed to lose
thot embarassment which bad troubled
blm, but he surprised Miss Auchlncloss
by certain glances and words that
were altogether too flirtatious to coma
from a married man, especially ons
who had been recently wedded. Miss
Auchluloss suggested that, the sun
bavlng tet, tbe air was becoming s
trifle chilly and she thought she would
return to the house. Tbey found tbe
auto standing before the door.
"Why, you're not going out again In
your machine tonight, Cousin Charlie?"
remarked Miss Aucblncloss.
"1 thought we would bavo another
ride," was the reply. "Tbe moon ls
coming up, and tt Is full tonight"
"But wbat!"
"Why, don't you think you'd better,
take Cousin Delta out wltb you5"
"Oh, she doesn't llko to ride tn sn

They went Into tbo bouse, and Charlie announced his intention to take his
cousin for n moonlight ride. This did
not surprise the others, and wben Miss
Auchlncloss offered to glva place to
Delta tbo latter repressed a smile and
said tbat ber moonlight rides wltb
Charlie were a thing of tbe past.
So tbe cousins got Into tbe auto together ond started forth. Tbey bad
not been out long before It was evident
that Coualn Cbarlie was trying to get
something out He made several attempts, atl ot which were failures,
when Miss Auchlncloss said:
"Tbere Is something about this visit
of mine tbst I can't understand, i
secret among you ill, to wbich I hare
not been admitted. I wlsb you would
tell me what It Is."
Cousin Cbarlie made toother effort
■nd was soon launched upon tn explanation mingled wltb frequent excuses and apologies. He told her tbat
when he saw her In big auto be knew
it once that tbo bad made a mistake.
He wat not her Cousin Charlie at til.
The temptation to Impersonate that
gentleman and take her for a drive
wtt too strong for blm. Then It occurred'to blm to take her home wltb
him for dinner. He had prepared the
family for the event by telephone end
asked one of hit sisters to Impersonate
bis wife. Tbey btd protested against
the plan it flrst, bnt finally consented.
Tbe matter wonld have gone oft more
smoothly bad It not been for Frank,
-who kept them In constant terror lest
he ehould let out the plot I
It took Ur. Cbtmberlln tht greater
part of tbe ride to smooth Mils Auchlncloss' ruffled feelings, bnt gradually tt cams over her tbat the affair
was a very good joke, and she admitted that tbe had made some very
pleasant acquaintances. She asked
Cousin Cbarlie In -what direction he
was driving, and be said tbat he wis
taking ber to ber real cousin's. He
had telephoned them tbat ber arrival
would be delayed. Sbe asked wben
her suit case would be sent to ber, and
he told her that It was stowed away
In tbe rear of the auto.
It had been very easy for the young
man to play the game; Indeed, Miss
Auchlncloss had walked Into It of ber
own accord, lt wns another matter
to smooth ber ruffled feelings. Nevertheless by dint ot penitence and persuasion bo finally succeeded.
And so ended tho flrst chapter In a
love story which was quite awblto In
developing. Miss Aucblucloss was prevailed upon to visit agalo those wbo
had entertained her, and tbey all became very Intimate. Cousin Cbarlte,
or Fred Warrington, took ber on many
an auto ride and one moonlight night
In the autumn eecured ber promise to
be bis wife.
Violet Fer Mourning.
It was not by accident that violet
was cbosfcn by mnny nations as the exclusive color for mourning and by us
also for bait mourning. Painters suffering trom hysteria and neurasthenia
will be Inclined to cover tbelr pictures
uniformly wltb the color most'in accordance wltb their condlUon of lassitude and exhaustion. Tbus originate
the violet pictures ot Manet and bis
school, which spring from no actually
observable aspect ot nnture, but from
a subjective view duo to conditions of
the nerves. Wheu the entire surface
of walls ln salons and art exhibitions
ot the day appears yelled lu uniform
bait mourning this predilection for violet Is simply an expression of Ihe nervous debility ot the palnter.-Nordau's

Jnles Lefebvre, who died the other
dsy tt tbe tge of seventy-six, full of
the honors opes to an artist member
of the Institute, commander of the Legion ot Honor, was chiefly t portrait
painter. But In addition he painted
charming, dreamlike figures ot fancy
and also decorations for the ceilings ot
the Vanderbllt mansion ln New York,
of the court of cassation and the writing aalon of the city ball In Paris. He
was a member of tha old Salon Jury,
and the pupils at Julian's, .where ho
taught or ratber advised during bis regular visits, tlways found t powerful
protector ln him when they wished to
exhibit at the Artistes Francais. They
used to bring tbelr works to him before sending tbem to the Urand Palais,
ostensibly to have bis advice on tbem,
but really to be sure tbat be would
recognize them when they reacbed the
His studio just before sending ln dsy
was crowded with young artists anxious to show tbelr work. One day
wben tbere were about fifteen there t
magnificently liveried footman appeared with a small canvas under bis arm.

that she would be extremely pleased it
M. le Marquis' picture wat bung on

"Very well, my man; thnt't understood." And when the flunky bad left
the artist turned to the young painters
and said:

people want tbe line, next year they
will ask for a gold medal."

Arrangements Fer a Card Party.
A hostess should always provide
some prizes for a card party and thus
show ber guests tbat she does not expect tbem to play for money. To invite people to your bouse and then
oblige tbem to do something of which,
they greatly disapprove ls an unpardonable offense against good manners
as well as good morals. It also sbows
t cruel lack of consideration for the
young men wbo cannot afford to lose
money. A girl can often escape by,
making aome excuse, but for a man,
who ls supposed to be Independent ln
money matters, this ls more difficult
As gambling debts are very -properly
not recognized by tho law and are
therefore beld to be debts of bonor,
a poor young man who ls forced by ■
cruel or thoughtless hostess to incur
sucb a liability ls placed ln a moat unpleasant predicament
Some excellent people tblnk there lt
no harm ln playing for small stakes—
3 or 5 cents a point But, whatever
tbe personal views of tbe hostess at s
card party, lf she is a woman of good
breeding Bhe always arranges some
tables for tbose wbo prefer not to
play for money.
Since expensive prizes create envy
and bad feeling It ls better to select
pretty trifles tbnt please by their
novelty, beauty or oddity ratber than
by their money value. The exact cost
of these gifts will vary Bomewhat in
accordance wltb tbe means of tbe
giver and ber friends. It would be ln
bad taste ror tbe wife ot a man living
on a small salary to offer a prize that
might ho given without impropriety;
by the wife of a millionaire to her
rich associates. Our circle ot acquaintances usually know moro accurately
than we suppose tbo amount of our
Income and criticise any display ot
extravagance. Tba well bred hostess
tries to avoid the two extremes o<
meanness and ostentation.
It ts now thought best not to show
the prizes until the end of tbe even.
Theie Humble Burrows.« Are Qreat
Aids to the Farmer.
The humblo earthworm Is one ot
man's best friends. The farmer and
the gardener could not spare him. Dr,
J. Newton Friend tells about him In
Science Progress. From Dr. Friend's
observations lt appears that worms
aerate tbe toll In a variety of ways.
In burrowlug through the soil tbe
worms render tt more porous snd permeable to gases, not merely by virtue
of tbs tlr sptces formed, but by reason ot the fact that the soil ts tbus
continually kept In gentle motion.
Again, the soil passing tbrough iht
bodies ot worms la excreted tn n finer
condition, belug ground by attrition
tbrough lbe Intestines. Darwin estimated Ibat no fewer tban fifteen loot
ot soil annually pass through tht bodies ot worms for every tcre.
Further, worms breathe ln oxygen
snd exhale carbon dioxide, and the latter gas, at Is well known, readily dissolves tn waler, forming an- acid solution which will render alkaline earths
tnd metallic oxldes-tron-tolnble.
Worms materially aid Id producing
soluble salts of Iron Id tbe soil when
other ogenclcs-e. g.. dilute mineral
acids-fall. The Iron le eventually given back to Ibe soil In a more soluble
condition and presumably tn oot which
ctn be directly absorbed by pilot
roots.      i

New Ui* For Aluminium.
With a pencil of aluminium indelible
characters mny lie written or drawn
un glass or porcelain, and when treated
with hydrochloric acid the surface covered by Ihe characters becomes etched.
When tho characters ere not etched,

only on substances containing silicic
