three other'members, tha list doea

ship must go on together, and, as
the roctor pointed out, the present
building, united as it was to' the
church, symbolised in its structure
the unity of these two parts in every
complete life.
Special thanks, he felt, are due to
the Woman's Guild, whirl, in the
beginning, and the W. A., which
latterly, together with the many
good friends, outside as well as inside the parish, enabled us to accomplish this work.
The rector read a letter of regret
from tha Ref. Father L. Choinel for
his unavoidable absence, and in
which he extended bis congratulations and good wishes.
The Rev. James Calvert, of the
Methodist church, and the Rev. M.
1). McKee, of the Presbyterian denomination, kindly made a few
co-oplimentary and appreciative remarks, felicitating tbe church members in accomplishing su much.
The rest of tbe evening waa spent
in conversation, interspered witb
with music and singing. Refreshments were served by ths ladies",
and the singing of the national anthem and doxology brought to an
end a very pleasant evening, marking the beginning of a new chapter
in which, it iB hoped, will be recorded much good for the benefit
not ouly of the church people but
also of the whole community.

J. J. Warren, president of tha
Kettle Valley lines, accompanied by
the chief engineer of the road and
SuperindentDemutb, arrived in the
city last Friday from a trip to
Franklin, and Gloucester camps,
where they made a thorough inspection of the prospective ore tonnage. On their return down the
river, the party followed the right-
of-way of the road from Gloucester
to Lynch creek. The chief engineer decided to make a slight change
in the proposed route. Tho road
will cross the river at a lower point
than was intended by the original
survey in order to avoid some heavy
rockwork. Mr. Warren had. nothing to say regarding terminals or
divisional points.
The impression prevails among
North Fork residents that tbe provincial government is on the trail
.f the road, and that the link from
Lynch creek to Franklin will be
built next summer.

Tho Last Finger
In the ordinary course of things,
and, but for the dramatic . events of
the evening, it would have been about
the time oi night when dinner was
finished and the house-party had
gathered in the drawing-room. It
had been somewhere about seven
when the Americans reached Merton
Grange, and now it was getting towards nine. It was not exactly the
temperature at which one enjoys an
evening stroll, but the recent exents
had been so exciting that Vera felt
how impossible it would be to settle
down to anything within the limits
of the house. There waa a moon,
too, which made all the difference in
the world. As Vera walked along
she almost smiled to herself to think
how strange her conduct might look
in the eyes of those formal people
whose lives run in conventional channels. She told herself more than
once that it would be absurd to hope
to see Gerald at this time of night,
but all the same she continued her
journey across the park.
She had not so far to go as she expected, for presently she could see
the glow of a cigar in the distance,
and Venner came up. A little joyful cry came from Vera.
"This is very fortunate," she said.
"How lucky it is that I should run
against you in this fashion."
"Well, I was flattering myself that
you came on purpose," Venner said.
"And, after all, it is not so very
lucky, seeing that I have been hanging about this house on the chance
of seeing you since it became dark.
But you look rather more disturbed
and anxious than usual. My dearest
girl, I do hope and trust that there
are no new complications. I shall
really have to take you by force and
carry you out of the country. Why
should we have to go on living this
miserable kind of existence when we
can take our happiness in both hands
and enjoy it? Now, don't tell me that
something fresh has occurred which
will keep us apart for another year
or two. By the way, have you had
any visitors tonight?"
"What do you know about them?"
Vera asked. "Have you found out
anything about Mr. Fenwick?"
Evors or my brother to be too much
in evidence just now."
"My dearest girl, I would do anything in the world for you," Venner
cried. ""And if I am to take that
and get rid of him altogther, I will
do so with pleasure and never count
the cost. If I could see your brother "
"Then why not come and see him
now?" Vera said. "You will have to
meet sooner or later, and there could
be no better opportunity for an explanation."
To Le Fenu and Evors, smoking in
the dining-oom came Vera and Venner. Le Fenu looked up with a sort
of mild surprise and perhaps just a
suspicion of mistrust in his eyes.
"Whom have we here, Vera?" he
said. "You know him perfectly well
by name—he was with us, on and
off, for a considerable time before our
poor father died. Father had a great
regard for him, and I hope you will
have the same, for a reason which I
am just going to mention."
"I am sure I am very pleased to
meet you," Le Fenu said, politely.
"This is my friend, Mr. Charles
Evors, the only son of the owner of
the house.' When I come to look at
you, Mr. Venner, I confess that your
appearance pleases me, but I have
had to deal with so many suspicious
characters lately that really "
"Oh, don't apologize," Venner
laughed. , "You will have to make the
best of me. I came here tonight with
Vera to have a thorough explanation
of certain matters."
"Oh, indeed," Le Fenu responded
with uplifted brows. "My sister and
you  appear to be on  very familiar
terms "
"It is only natural," Vera laughed.
A vivid blush flooded her face.
"Charles, Mr. Venner is my husband."
I am not in the least surprised to
hear it," Le Fenu said. "In fact, I
am not surprised at anything. I have
quite outgrown all emotions of that
kind, but perhaps you will be good
enough to tell me how this came
about, and why I have not heard of
it before. As your brother, I am entitled to know."
"Of course, you are. It was just
after our father died that I promised
my self to Gerald. I had my own
ideas why the marriage should be
kept secret. You see, I had more or
less thrown in my lot with my uncle,
Mark Fenwick, because I had determined to get to the bottom of the
business of our father's death. I felt
certain that Charles here had nothing
to do with it; though, owing to his
folly and weakness, he played directly into the hands of the man who
was reallv responsible for the crime."
"We all know who is responsible
for the crime." Le Fenu said. "There
is no necessity to mention his name."
"Oh, I know that," Vera went on.
"The explanation I am making now
is more io mv husband than either
of you. He has heen goodness and
kindness itself, and he is entitled to
know everything. It was within a
few minutes of   my   being   married

Well   I   should   say  so     Venner i thnt j 1(,arnt something of the dread-
said, drily.     I have absolutely got to]ful tru(ll    j Iearnt ,hnt Fpnwick had
the bottom of that mysterious coin
business. In fact, I accompanied
Egan and Grady to London, and I
was with them when they arrested
that awful creature, Blossett. Egan
and Grady are old friends of mine,
and I told them all about the strange
coins and how you literally burnt
your fingers over them. Thev were
coming down here to arrest Fenwick,
and I offered to accompany them; but
they declined my offer, so I returned
here alone, and have been hanging
ahout the house, curious to know
what had taken place. Have they
bamred our friend Fenwick yet?"
"It is about Mr. Fenwick thnt I
wish to speak to you," Vera replied.
"Mr. Evors is down here. By the
way, I don't know whether you are
aware of the fnct that he is the son
of Lord Merton."
"Perhaps vou had hetter tell me
the story," Venner said.
"I nm comity? to thnt presently.
Mr. Evnrs is down her»; he is the
mnn who is engaged to my sister
Venner whistled softh- to himself.
At anv rale, he knew all about that,
for his mind went swiftly back to
the series o' drnmntic events whioh
had taken place some time previously
in the bouse in Port-mouth Pnnare.
He recollected now the .»'hite-fnc-*d
young mnn who hnd broken away
from his enrtors nnil ioi—-d T- Fenu,
otherwise Bntes. in the drawing-
room. He recolla>ctcd th- ioy "nd ile-
liffht of the girl, nnd how she had
clung to the stranger ns if he hnd
come bnck to her from the other side
of the grave.
"There will he a great mnny thincs
♦o he oxplnincd hetween us presently," he s-i-l. gravely. "But for the
present. I wnnt to know nil about
Fenwick.   Where is he now?"
"He is hiding up nt the house. I
believe they hnve put him into n
secret room, the wherenbonls of
which is known only to Ohnrles
Evors.   Of conrso. he will not stay."
"But why shield such n blackguard
a* nil?" Venner asked. "Surely, after
all Ihe trouble he has caused you—"
"Yon must not force! thnt he is our
own flesh and blond." Vera snid,
nulelly. "I hnd nlmost ignored the
fnct— nm afraid I should have ignored il altogether hnd nnt my brother tnken a strong view of the matter. At nny rate, there he is, nnd
wn nre in a conspirncv to p»t him
safely out of the oounlrv. For the a
present the mnn is utterly broken
down nnd absolute!.* incnnnble of
Inking care of himself. I want you:
to do me a favor. Oernld. I want'
ynu to tnke n hand in Ihis business.
Whl'e the poller- nre sllll hot unon the [
track it would not be prudent tor Mr. j
conspired to throw the blame of the
tragedy upon Charles Evors. I
learnt what an effect this conspiracy
had had on our poor Beth. There
and then I came to a great resolution.
I wrote to my husband and told him
in all probability I could never see
him again—at any rate,- I could not
see him for a long- space of time.
I implored him to trust me in spite
of all appearances, and he did so.
Now he knows the reason why I acted so strangely. I can see that he
has n thousand auestions to ask me,
but I hope that he will refrain from
doing so at present. The thing that
troubles me now is what has become
of poor little Beth."
"Oh, she is all right enough." Le
Fenu said. "I thought of that before
I came down. I have left her in the
safe hands of the very clever doctor
who has my ense under his charge,
nnd Beth is with his family. We can
hnve her down here tomorrow if you
"Nothing would please me better,"
Vera said, fervently.. "And now, I
want to know if you have done anything or formed any plan for getting
rid of Mark Fenwick. I shall not be
able to breathe here until he is gone."
Le Fenu explained that Ihey had
come to no conclusion at present.-He
waa quite alive to the fact that delay was dangerous, seeing that Lord
Merton's agents would have to communicate with him by telegram, and
that the owner of the house might be
back any moment. Therefore it
was absolutely necessary that something should be done in the matter
of Mark Fenwick without loss of
time.   Vera indicated her companion.
"That is why I brought Gerald
here," she said. "I thought he might
be able to help us. He knows all
sorts and conditions of people, and it
is probable that he may be able to
find an asylum in London where the
wretched man upstairs can hide until it is quite safe to get him out of
the way."
'I think I can manage that pnrt of
the programme," Venner said, "There
iB an old servant of mine living
down Poplar way with his wife who
will do anything I ask him. The
man haa accompanied me all over
the world, and he is exceedingly
handy in every way. Those people
would take, a lodger to oblige me, and
when you come to think of it, Poplar is not at all a bad place for anybody who wants to get out of the
country without being observed. It
is doae to the river, and all sorts of
craft are constantly going up and
down. What do you think of the

It is, of course, now in order for all citizens of Qrand
Forks and all other sections
of Yale-Cariboo electoral district to congratulate Hon.
Martin Burrell on his elevation to a cabinet position. Few
men even among those who
voted against him will deny
him this honor. A few weeks
ago we would have liked to
have been able to record the
defeat of Mr. Burrell and the
balance of his political compatriots. But as a majority of
the Canadian people decided
against this Wish, the greater
the honors that the new government may confer on Mr.
Burrell the better it will please
us. We realize that the title
of a cabinet minister carries
with it more distinction to
the city and district than the
title of amembe-rof parliament,
and therefore as a citizen we
heartily congratulate Mr. Burrell on his appointment. From
a political standpoint, however, we may often in the future, as in the past, have occasion to differ from the views
expressed by the new minister. We believe that Mr.
Burrell make an efficient minister of agriculture, and that
. his department will be kept
free from scandal.
The people were promised
a number of surprises in Premier Borden's cabinet. With
the exception of Mr. Burrell's
name, and two or three others,
the surprises are not of an
agreeable nature, howeVer.
• Two .of the members have
political records which are not
far from shady. Another is a
Liberal reifegade. The increased representation given
Quebec indicates that Mr. Borden has taken a leaf out of
Premier McBride's political
code—"The point is to get into office, and to stay in."
As The Sun was the only paper
which advocated the appointment
of Martin Burrell as minister of
agriculture, we reluctantly jump at
the conclusion that it has more in-
lluence with thn new Ottawa government thnn nny other paper in British Columhia.

Negotiations With Ooal Operators to Be Ke-Opened
at Once
Lethbridge, Alta.. Oct. 12.—The
miners completed their couvention
today, but have absolutely nothing
to make public, l't is thought tbat
the convention referred the whole
situation hack to the executive to do
us they think best.
There is no doubt that something
will transpire in a few days to bring
about a settlement of the strike.
It is known that the international
executive is in favor of having a aet-
tlement reached as soon as possible,
and for thia express puipose Mr.
White came up to the scene.
It is significant that he left for Indianapolis today, and before he left
beseemed very optimistic regarding
a settlement. It isgenerally believed
that the convention formulated pome
plan of action that the execntive
will follow to reopen negotiations
and that something of importance
will be made public in a lew days.

The Bsautiful Picture for Grand Forks Sun and Montreal Family Herald and Weekly Star Subscribers
this Season.   r_/ln Inspiration of Love and
Affection—cyl Picture that will be like a
Member  of  the  Family—A  Daily
Study for Old and Young
'PHE Family Herald ami Weekly Htir of Montreal, acknowledged to be
I the greatest and lient family and farm paper on tha continent, has-in
many occasions given its renders moi-t delightful premium pictures,
hut this season they have secured what is beyond »ry question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper reader*. It is entitled "Home
Aiiiiin" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation.
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous fnr his beauty and gentleness, winner
of many prizes at dug snows, the pride of the family and neighborhood,
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
which he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark brings hislittli- mistress, Marjoric, to the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty plaiymite's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. ''Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Whew I love is Home."
The sweet faced young mother, a woman of lofi ourves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an «_|er boy with hair like
his Mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place,
on the walls of any home.
The picture i.s by'tha celebrated artist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting nf children and animals.
The beautiful picture "Home Again" on heavy plate paper 22x29
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly Star for 1912
The small sum of 81,50 will secure the two papers for a full year including a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which nlone is
easilv worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not be bought at that price.
Every home in the Boundary should get the big $1 50 worth this
silver-white mica for silver; graphite
for silver-lead ore and  molybdenite.
It is equally true that valuable
minerals are sometimes passed over
as worthless, a notable instance of
this being the zinc-carhoneate ore at
Leadville, Col. This ore, now lie
coming an important source of profit
at many of the mines in that camp,
had until only recently been ignored
as worthless, eyeu by '-experts."
It is nol safe to take long chnnces
on identifying minerals merely by
inspection, There are too many opportunities for slips. An amusing
instance of this may be cited. A
sample of a mineral was submitted
for identification —that to the eye
resembled calcite; the resemblance,
however, ended there. A sample
was sent to a noted New York gem
ex pelt, who, very sarcastically, pronounced it calcite. Another sample
was sent to a prominent mineralogist at an eastern university who
named the mineral cojrectly. The
trouhlu was that the gem expert
ventured to nnme the mineral by
inspection, while the university professor subjected it to tests. The
moral to be gained from this is, do
not take too much for granted.

Wool Wu Not Her Specialty
A colored lawyer retained on behali
of a colored dresHmaker, charged with
stealing her customer's silk and substituting an inferior quality, was trying to throw doubt upon the testimony
of a lady witness who had said that
she could tell the value ol silk accurately.
"Do you think," said he. "you could
recognize the man of color who
brought you tho hundle?" *
"No," she answered, "I think all
colored persons look alike." .
"Oh, do you?" said the lawyer, "We
will see," and he called upon Several
negroes present to rise.
"Now, madam, please tell the court
whether you could distinguish these
men apart."
"I don't see any difference between
them, and, except that some are a
little darker than others, I cannot distinguish one from another."
"Do you mean then, madam, that
you can judge accurately of silk, and,
yet you cannot see any difference between Mr. Johnson and myself?"
"She regarded herself as a judge of
silk and not of wool," interrupted the
prosecuting attorney.—New York

The young man considered for a moment.   Then he said:
"I think, sir, I should leave that entirely to Mrs. Bullion."
"Um! And what is the amount of

"Oh, that, sir," answered the pleasant young fellow, "I—I leave that entirely to you, Mr. Bullion."

Ask any doctor and he will tell you
that eczema is caused by impurities
in the blood; that nothing can cure it
tha does not reach the blood—that
salves nnd outward applications are
worthless and a waste of money. The
reason why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
have always been so successful in curing this most annoying trouble is because they act directly on the blood,
reaching the root of the trouble and
driving out all impurities. They
banish eczema, salt rheum, and unsightly pimples and eruptions, relieve
the irritation and itching and give
perfect health. Mrs. A. Puling, of
Milestone, Sask., says: "I was afflicted with a blood and . skin disease
which the doctor called eczema, but
which did not yield in the least to
his treatment. 1 was covered with
sores and in very bad shape. A friend
advised me to take Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills and after using eight or nine
boxes I was completely cured. I can
strongly recommend the Pjlls to anyone suffering from thnt trouble."
A medicine that can make new, red
blood will cure not only skin trouble,
but alBO anaemin, rheumatism, neuralgia, indigestion and a host of other
troubles simply because these troubles
are the result of bad blood. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills mnke new blood nnd
under their use blood nnd nerve

Be Warned
by Headache
It Tells of Serious  Derangements of
the Liver and Kidneys
You can stop a headache with pow-'
t-rful drugs. But it is not generally
wise to do so.
A headache almost always wnrns
you of derangements of the digestive
system, the liver, kidneys or bowels.
Awaken the liver to healthful action by the use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, and you not only 'free
yourself of headache, but remove the
cause, which will soon lead to more
dangerous results than headache.
Invigorate the action of the kidneys
by this treatment and you take away
the dangers of Bright's disense as well
as free yourself of headache.
Pains are the result of poison in
the system and whether you have
headache, backache or aching limbs,
you can be almost sure of relief and
cure when you cleanse and regulate
tlie vital organs by the use of Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
They are wonderfully prompt, as
well as definite and .thorough in action. You can depend upon them,
no matter how long-standing or complicated your case, so long as the
cause is the sluggish, torpid condition of the liver and kidneys.
If you don't feel like risking 25
cents for a box, write for a free sample. A trial will convince you of
their merits. One pill a dose; 25

Tht Arittocratic Bulldog Wat Once a
Herder ol Cattlt.
It it probable that few lovers ot the
most popular dog of to-day—the bulldog—know when he obtained his
name. He is called a "bull" for the
reason that formerly his services were
employed in the driving of cattle.
The dog was trained to meet the
rushes of the bull by the simple expedient of seizing his charge by itl
most sensitive prt. the nose.
The spaniel, formerly one of the
most popular species of dogs, gets iti
name from Spain, from which country
the first breeds were sent to England,
where for a long time they were called
"Spanish dogs."
Some have thought that the fox-
terrier derived his name from the fox,
by reason of his pointed fox-like muzzle, but, as a matter ol fact, the dog
was not so named on account of any
fancied resemblance to Reynard. Uu
.the contrary, the fox-terrier is eo named because, in the days when it wat
much larger in site and ol greater
strength than now, it was employed
by English sportsmen to draw and kill
the fox, being sent down into Reynard's burrow for that purpose.
Many of the species of hounds to
popular to-day are survivors of the
time when most hunting dogs were
taught to "hound" game. Then dogs
selected by reason of their superior
speed and powers of endurance were
chosen to'accompany the hunting parties. Hounds were divided into two
classes—those best qualified to follow
the game by scent, and thoie capable
ot sighting the quarry a long distance
away. All,, however, were expected
to unite in the running down ot the
quarry. And so it happens that, in
the Teutonic languages, the name of
"hound," or "hund," as the Germans
have it, was originally used to designate all species ol dogs, but came in
time to be applied to hunting-dogs
only. In later times there came a
differentiation with respect to greyhounds, rabbit-hounds, blood-hounds,
deerhounds, etc.
An interesting case in point Is that
ot the German dashund, which means
"badger-hound." The first dogs of this
species were employed in the drawing
of badgers.
A Brave Detd.
The Duke of Connaught, Lord
Roberts, Lord Derby, and the Bishop
of Hereford were among the larue
company which assembled on the
occasion of "Speech Day" at Wellington College, recently. The Duke of
Connatieht presented the majority ol
the prizes to the winners, but Lord
Roberts handed his award to M. S.
Harvey Jones, and P. M. Bra-ndmead
received from Lord Derby the Earl
of Derby's prize for French.
In handing his prize to the winner
Lord Roberts said he had been asked what was the bravest deed he hn 1
ever seen. He remembered that while
on his way to Lucknow his force was
stopped by a walled enclosure. A
little soldier, a Punjabi Mohammedan, seeing the difficulty, endeavored
to open the door which barred their
way. When he tried flrst to draw the
bolt one of his hands was cr1 off by
one of the enemy. Then he manned
to unfasten the bolt with hit other
hand, which was subsequently nearly
severed from the writt.
Tht  Lott Anctttor.
Of Lord Houghton, father of the
present Earl of Crewe, the following
good story is told:
He had seen the portrait of an admiral in a shop in Wardour ttreet,
and offered $*-» for it. The detler
wanted $50, but ultimately came down
to $37.50. Lord Houghton would not
go beyond the $25, however, and did
not get tbe picture. Soon afterwards,
visiting a neighbor in Yorkshire, Lord
Houghton caught sight of hit Iriend
the admiral hanging in the dining-
room. He recognized him at once,
and said: "Halloa! who's that? What
have you got there? Something new?"
"Yes," replied tho friend; "he was a
celebrated admiral who fought with
Nelson—a fine portrait, too—recently
bequeathed to us—an ancestor ol my
wife's." "Ah, was he?" said Lord
Houghton. "A month ago he was
within two pound ten of becoming one
of mine!"

Distinguished Poultry Ftrmtrt.
It was Queen Alexandra who started
the vogue for chicken farming. At
Sandringham Her Majesty hat tome
of the best birds in the world, and
there is still a keen rivalry between
Queen Alexandra and her brother, the
King ol Greece, in regard to white
"Silkies."    Lady   Derby   it   another
great fancier whose name it well
nown at the thows. So is Mrt. Paderewski, wife of the famous pianist.
Lady Derby has the finest collection of
Orpingtons in England. The young
American Countess of Craven, daughter of Mrt. Bradley Martin, has expended a fortune on her chicken
farms. There is scarcely an aristocratic chicken family in the world ol
which ahe hat not a epecimen.

Height and Weight
The ideal insurance risk, from
the point of view of height, is Haid
to be from five feet eeven inches to
five fret nine inches tall. According
to the national faternal congress,
longevity and build have a dose relation; the greater tbe variation in
height from tbe above figure tbe
greater the risk.
Brockhank says that tall men are
not so long lived as their brothers
whose heads are nearer to the
ground. Men wbo are both tall and
stout are not so good risks as stout
men of medium or below medium
height, says a writer in American
Medicine. They do not 'bear acute
illness so well, und accidents to them
are likely to be more severe.
Risljs over the allotted limit of
weight are especially liablu to diabetes, heart affections, apoplexy*
gout, diseases of the kidneys and
abuse of alcohol are common among
this class. It is stated that stout
men under forty are worse risks
than those over forty and under
sixty, and that men who were unduly fat while they were boys are
considered poor risks, especially if
the tendency is hereditary.
Stout men are better average risks
than their very thin hrothers. who
are liable to tuberculosis and disorders ot the nervous system. But
for even tbe featherweight there is
much coi»solniion. He bears acute
illntBS better tban the heavyweight,
and most of the people living beyond
the aflotted threescore years and ten
are of light build. A slim, wiry,
small framed man is said to he a
better risk than a thin but big-
boned one.
