Reciprocity is a business proposition. It means free trade in the
products of the forest, the sea, the
farm and the mints. On the manufactured articles the  I nitnd  States
litical parties ill Canada to make witli
the United States uu agreement for
the freo exchange of natural products
between the two countries. In 1854
Lord Elgin on behalf of Canada and
the Maritime provinces negotiated
with the United States a treaty for
this purpose, which lasted until 180G,
and which, within the meiuery of
iii.inv mill alive, was of great advantage. Even since the termination of
that Utility all public men of anv
prominence in Cunada, whatever their
differences on other Canadian questions, have been unanimous in any
attempt tu again secure this free exchange of products; uor is this to be
wondered at, seeing that in the industries of agriculture, fisheries, lumbering and mining Canada possesses
advantages not enjoyed qy any other
country un earth, and that upoa the
markets s -cured fur products of these
industries depends the growth of our
manufacturing and commercial interests, and the prosperity of all classes
in the Dominion. The latest attempt
of the Conservative party to that end
was made by S r John Macdonald
himself, who dissolvod parliament in
1891 for the purpose of submitting to
the electorate of Canada the expediency of his approaching again the
American authorities for a renewal of
the treaty of 1854.
In ]8!).'l thu intention to obtain
reciprocity with thu United States
was made a prominent feature of the
platform uf the Liberal party upon
which that party obtained power in
1896.
After the present govermneent took
otlice it   renewed in vain this oiler   to
the United Status, but   u ting   with
no response, declared that no further
overtures of this nuture would be
tuade by Canada.
Within the past twelve months the
president of the United .states sent to
Ottawa two commissioners froinWa h
Ington for the purpusu of opening
negutlatiobs looking toward lowering
of the tariff barriers which have hitherto stood in the wuy of a freer exchange of commodities between Caus-
dti and the United states. These negotiations in January laat culminated
in an agreement between the two gov.
uniliieiiu by which the duties of each
country   on   moll   products   might be
lowered or altogether removed. This
agreement was strenuously resisted iu
the United Slates bv various interests
on tho (.Hedged ground that it was all
to the advantage of Canada and to
the detriment of the ui her country,
hut the view that it wa« mutually ad
vautangenus to buth countries finally
' prevailed in congress and the agree-
mont stands today as an offer by thu
United State, to Canada of that very
measure of reciprocity which for more

CHAPTER XIX.
Phantom Gold.
Vera hud entirely recovered her
self-possession by this time. She
was able to regard the men coolly
and critically. There was nothing
about them that suggested anything
wrong or underhand; on the contrary
the girl rather liked their appearance. All the same it was a strange
and unique experience; and though
Vera had heen through a series of
trials and tribulations, she thrilled
.now ns she recognized how near she
had been to the man who was thus
running himself into the hands of
justice.
"But how can you know anything
about me?" she suid. "You surely
do not mean to suy that you suspect- "
"Not- at all, miss," Egan said civilly. "Only you see, it is always
our business to know it great denl
more than people imagine. I hope
you won't suppose that we are going
to take any advantage of our position here, or that we want you to
betray Mr. Fenwick into our hands;
but since we hnve been discovered by
you, we will ask you to go so far
as to say nothing to Mr. Fenwick.
If you tell him, you will be doing
considerable harm to a great many
deserving people who have suffered
terribly et that man's hands. I think
you understand."
Vera understood only too well, and
yet her delicate sense of honor was
slightly disturbed nt the idea of continuing there without warning Fenwick of the danger that overshadowed him. Personally, she would hove
liked to have told him exactly how
lie stood, and given him the opportunity to get away, Perhaps Egan
saw something of this in Vern's face
for he went on to speak again.
"1 know it isn't very nice for you,
miss, and I nm not surprised to see
you hesitate; but seeing that Fenwick
has done you ns much liiirni as any-
liody else "
"How do you know that?" Veru
exclaimed.
"Well, you see, it is our business
to know everything. I feel quite certain thnt on reflection you will do
nothing to defent the ends of justice."
"No," snid Vera, thoughtfully. "In
nny ense. it cannot much mutter.
You nre here to nrrest Mr. Fenwick,
and you probably know where he is
to be found nt the present moment."
"There you nre wrong, miss,"
Grady snid, "We nre not in a position
nt present to lay hands on our num.
We came here prepared to take a few
risks—but 1 don't, suppose you would
care to henr anything about our
methods. It will be n grent favor to
us if you will retire to your room and
stay tliere till morning."
Vera went off without any further
ado. feeling that once more the current of events had come between her
and the sleep that she sorely needed.
But she had youth and health on
her side, and in spite of everything
was fast asleep in a few minutes.
It wns fairly late when she came
down the next morning nnd she was
rather surprised to Hnd that Fenwick
had not finished his breakfast. He1
sat there sullen and heavy-eyed, and
had no more than a grunt for Vera
in response to her morning greeting.
He turned over his food with savage
disapproval. Evidently from the look
nf him, he had not only been up
lute overnight, but he hnd also hud
more wine than was good for him.
"Who ean eat rubbish like this?"
lie growled. "The stuff isn't fit. to
feed a dog with. Look at this biienn."
"You can expect nothing else,"
Vera said coldly. "If you choose to
try ami run this large bouse with
practically no servants but ii enre-
taker and his wife, you must put up
with tint consequences. You tire an
exceedingly clever mini, hut you
seem to have overlooked one fact,
and that is the amount of gossip
you are providing for the neighbors.
It isn't as if we were still in town
where the man next door knows nothing ubout you and cares less. Here
people are interested ill their neighbors. It will cause quite a scandal
when it becomes known thnt you are
occupying Lord Merton's house with
nothing more than a number of
questionable men. As far as I call
see, you are far worse off here than
if you had stayed in London. I may
lie wrong, of course."
"I begin to think you nre quite
right," Fenwick grunted. "I must
see to this. It will never do for all
these chattering magpies to pry into
my business. You had better go
into Canterbury this morning and
see if you can't arrange for u proper
staff of servants to come. Well,
what's the matter now?"
One of the men had come into the
room with a telegram in his hand.
He pitched it in a contemptuous way
upon the table and withdrew, whistling unconcernedly. The man's manner was so flippant and familiar that
Vera flushed with annoyance.
"1 wish you would keep your subordinates u little more under your
control," she said. "One hardly expects a man of your wealth to be
treated in this way by his clerks."
But Fenwick was not listening.
His brows were knotted in a sullen
frown while he glunced at the message
| he held in his hand. He clutched the
I flimsy paper and threw it with a passionate gesture into the fire. Vera
could see that his yellow face hod
grown strangely white, and that his
coarse lips were trembling. He rose
from the table, pushing his plate
away from him.
"I've got to go to town nt once."
he said. "How strange it is thut
everything seems to have gone wrong
of late! 1 shall be buck ngnin in
time for dinner und 1 shull be glinl
if you are good enough to see that 1
have something fit to eat. Perhaps
you had better telephone to town
for some servants. It doesn't much
mutter whnt you pay tbem ns long
as they are good."
Fenwick walked rapidly from the
room and n few moments later Vera
could see his cur moving swiftly
down the drive. On the whole she
wus not sorry to hnve Fenwick out
of the house. She wns pleased too,
that he had mode up his mind about
the servant question, and she was
not satisfied until she hnd set the
telephone in motion and settled the
matter so far us the domestic staff
was concerned.
Then a sudden thought flashed into her mind. * Here was the opportunity for examining the little room
where Fenwick and his satellites hod
been busy the previous evening.
Vera hod not failed to notice that
three of the men had gone off with
Fenwick in his cor, so thot. in all
probability, they meunt to accompany
him to town,   tf this turned out to be
was some moments before she could
make the old man understand what
she needed; then, with the air of
one who parts with some treasure,
he handed her a little tortoiseshell
box, remarking at the same time,
that he had hud it for the lust sixty
years and would not part with it for
anything. A moment later Vera was
back again at the end of the corridor.
Venner hod not moved, a sure sign
that no one hod approached in the
meantime. Taking the box from
Vera, and leaving her to guard the
corridor, he stepped into the little
room where he proceeded to stir o
little pellet of .-snuff into the glass
of wine. This done, he immediately
hurried Vela away to the other end
of the corridor.
"1 think that will be all riglit
now," he said. "We have only got
to wait till win man comes buck and
give him a quarter of un hour's low.
Snuff is a very strong drug nnd within ii few minutes of bis finishing his
wine he will bc sound uslecp on the
floor."
It fell out exactly as Venner had
prophesied. The man came back
presently, passing Vera and her companion without lhe slightest suspicion of anything wrong. Then he
turned into the little room and closed the door behind him. Half an
hour passed before Vera knocked at
the door on some frivolous pretext,
but no answer came from the other
side. She knocked ngain and again,
after which she ventured to open the
door. The wine glass wus empty, a
half finished oigurntte lny on the
floor und beside it, lay the man in
a deep and comatose sleep. Venner
fairly turned htm over with his, foot
but the mon guve no sign. The
thing wns sufe now.
" We*needn't worry ourselves for un
hour or so," Venner said. "And now
correct then there was only one man J to see if we can discover the secrets
to be accounted for. Possibly with of the prison house. Evidently no-

evening, though she wos rather surprised to find him manifestnting less
astonishment that she had expected.
Venner smiled when Vera mentioned
this.
"Oh. that's no new thing to me,"
he soid. "I sow all that going on ill
your suite of rooms ot the Grond
Empire Hotel, though 1 haven't the
least notion what it oil means. 1
should hove thought thot your interesting gunrdioii was manufacturing
counterfeit coins. But we managed
to get hold of one of them, and a
jeweler pronounced that it was genu
thut the mysterious new sovereigns
were wrapped up in."
"Oh, let me see," Vera said eagerly as she pulled the lid off the box.
"See, this stuff inside is just like
asbestos, and sure enough here is o
layer of sovereigns on the top. How
bright and new they look. I have
never seen gold so attractive hefore.   I "
Vera suddenly ceased to speak and
a sharp cry of pain escaped her as
she dropped on the floor one of the
coins which she had taken in her
hand.   She wns regarding her thumb

his wife count for nothing, they ure
quite innocent parties, and merely
regard their stay here as temporary,
pending the arrival of our staff of
servants." ,
"In that cose, I don't see why it
shouldn't be managed," Venner said.
"You hud better go bock to the
house, and 1 will call and see you.
There is not the slightest reason why
1 shouldn't give my own name, nor
is there the slightest reason why
you should not show me over the
house when I come. I daresay all
this sounds u bit cheap, but one cannot be too careful in dealing with
these people." ,
It was oil arranged exactly os
Venner had suggested, and a little
Inter Vern wns shaking hands with
her own husbund os if he were n
perfect stronger. They proccded
presently to wulk up the grnnd stair-
ciise uud nlong the corridor, Veru
doing the honors of the plnce nnd
speaking iu o manner calculated to
deceive onybody who wos listening.
She stopped presently and clutched
Venner's arm excitedly. She pointed to a doorway leading to a little
room down the steps at the end of
the corridor.
"Tliere," she whispered, "that is
the room, nnd, us fur ns 1 enn see, it
is absolutely empty. What do you
say to going in there now? The const
seems to be quite clenr."
Venner hesilnted, for n moment,
it would be just ns well, he thought
to err on the side of caution. A
casual glance from the corridor disclosed nothing, except that on the
table tliere stood a bottle apparently containing wine, for a glass of some
dark ruby liquid stood beside it.
Very rapidly Venner run down the
flight of stairs and looked into the
room.
"There is' nobody there for the
moment." he snid, "but thnt bulldog of Fenwick's can't be far off for
there is a hnlf-smoked cigarette on
the end of the table which has not
yet gone out. 1 think I can see my
wny now to working this thing without any trouble or dnnger. Do you
happen to know if that rheumatic
old caretaker uses snuff?"
"Really, I don't," Vera said with
o smile. "But what possible connection is there between the enretnker
and his snuff ?"
"Never mind about that at present.
Go down mid ask the old man for his
snuff box. By the look of him, I om
quite sure he indulges in the habit.
Tell him you want to kill some insects In the conservatory. Tell him
anything, so long as you get possession of the liox for o few moments."
Vera flew off on her errand.    She
wos no fire in the room, and apparently no furnace or oven in which
the metiil could have heen heated.
Then he suddenly recollected that
Vera must bc ill poin.
"My poor child," he soid. "I um
so sorry. You must go down to the
old housekeeper at once and get her
to put something on your hand.
Meanwhile I will stay here nnd Investigate, though I don't expect for
n moment thot 1 shall mnke ony
further discoveries."
Vera's hand was dressed and the
pain of tlie burn had somewhat abated when Venner came down the
stairs again. He shook his head ill
response . to the questioning glunce
in Vern's eyes.
"Absolutely nothing," he snid. "I
found u snfe there let into the welll
but then you see, the safe has been
built fur years, and no doubt has
been used by Lord Merton to store
his plote and other valuables of that
kind, lt is just possible, of course,
that Fenwick has the key of it, and
that the safe hud been cleared out
for his use. I am afraid we shall
never solve this little pusxle until
Fenwick is in the hands of those detectives who gave you such a fright
lost night."
"But there must he some means
of heating those coins." Vera protested, "They must hove come
straight from the furnace."
"Of course," Venner said. "The
trouble is where to find the furnoce.
1 am perfectly sure, too, that the
sovereigns were genuine. Now what
on earth eon a mun gain by taking
current coin of the realm nnd milking them red hot? The only chnnce
of o solution is for me to find Egnn
ond Grody and tell them of my dis-
oovery, 1 shall be at the same spot
to-morrow afternoon ot the some
time, ond if 1 find out anything 1
will let you know."
There was nothing more for it than
this, whereupon Venner went awny
and Vera returned thoughtfully to
the dining-room. 8he was just a
little bit in doubt as to whether the
man upstairs would guess the trick
played upon him, but that she had
to risk.

The way In which the United State*

thieves and crooks may bring tbeir
stolen wares to bave them melted and
receive cash for th* eame waa recently
explained by tbe superintendent
The federal statutes make It difficult

or allver handed In. The statute read*
ln part tbat "any owner of gold and

and assayed Immediately." It doe*,

"Several yeara ago.'' said the superintendent "tbere waa a city detective
stationed In tbe building to watcb for
Jewelry and gold and silver pieces that
were presented for assaying to determine whether or not tbey were stolen

nut catch a single thief. Tbe reason
waa tbat tbe newe undoubtedly went
out to every 'fence,' crook aud thief of
every description in tbe city that ■

"After the city detective was withdrawn It became more necessary to ae-

"Tbe one provision we finally Incorporated, Into our rules that hae sept

we will accept stuff and It will turn
out to be worth a few dollars under
tbe amount but we cannot always

"We hove many otber ways of determining whether goods presented to u*

speaking of Canadian cattle he produced an old photograph which . he
stated he had obtained In the province of Quebec. He said that he had
found it In the barn of a farmer, and
he smilingly related how, by a little
careful manipulation he had managed
to carry it away with him.
H. H. Miller, the member lor South

a fall out of the doctor, so he interrupted with the comment, "I hope

New Health and
New Strength for
Suffering Women
ACHING   BACKS,   TIRED   LIMBS
AND SPLITTING HEADACHES
NEED NOT BE ENDURED
In silent patience nearly every woman endures suffering that casts a
shadow over half her existence. An
aching back, tired limbs, attacks of
laintness, and headaches and backaches need not be part of a woman's i
life. Such trials indicate plainly I
that the system requires the new
blood that is supplied through the
use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I
These Pills are valued by suffering
women who hnve used them above all
other medicines because they give the
rich, red' blood that makes women
well, bright and nt their best. Mrs.
Fred. Collard, Poplar Point, Man.,
Rays: "I can give you but a very
small estimate of the suffering I endured before I began using Dr. Willinms' Pink Pills. Afer the birth of
my first child I suffered intensely from
ailments thnt too often afflict my
sex. TRis was complicated by an
attnek of bleeding piles, and the
agony of the days and nights I endured is almost past comprehension.
1 tried ninny remedies but tbey did
not help me in my trouble, nnd from
a healthy young woman weighing 140
pounds I fell awny in weight to 95
pounds. I grew'so weak I could
hardly walk across thc floor, and
there were times I hardly knew what
I was doing so great wus my agony.
1 went to Brandon and consulted a
ilnctor who suid that nothing would |
help me but un operation for both I
my troubles, and that I would have
to remain 111 the hospital (nr nt least
eight weeks. .Being n farmer'! wife!
1 felt thnl this was impossible, nnd I
while in Brandon I met n friend who I
stvcngly urged tne to try Dr. Wil-!
llama' Pink Pills, telling me Hint
they had cured her trouble similar!
to mine, after an operation had proved
of no benefit. She had such strong j
faith In them that she guve me the
first box, and I began using them.
It wns not .long before I found much
relief. I continued to use the Pills
all thc rest of that summer, and the
result was they restored me to perfect health. I told the doctor what
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills had done
for me, nnd his reply wns thnt he
considered what they had done for
me a little less thnn n miracle. I have
since recommended the Pills to many
others who have suffered from woman's troubles, and they always produced beneficial results. I hope that
this statement will be of benefit to
some other suffering person." *
These Pills are sold by all medicine dealers or may be had by mail
at SO cents a box or six boxes for

United States Haa Surplus Production, but Our Superior Quality
Attracts the Yankee
Such prophecies as James J. Hill
has been guilty of, in depicting the
United States as almost at the limit
of her productive powers, are vain
babblings, when the actual agricul-
tuinl condition of the United Stntes
is considered. Those people like J.
J. Hill who argue ' for Reciprocity,
simply wnnt Canadian wheat for
milling nnd export purposes nnd nothing else. Northern whent from
Canada has n reputntion for qunlity
and it is this qunlity the American
desires to inject into his brand of
llntfr and grain shipments to Britain.
The facts of the cuse ure evident in
the following extruct from un nrticle
written for a Winnipeg daily paper
a fortnight ago:
"So far as wheat is concerned, and
it is the chief breadstuff that United
States would like to get from Canada,
our neighbors do not need Canadinn
wheat for their own consumption.
Their chief purpose in getting free
wheat from Canada would be to export it through their ports and to use
it for milling purposes, thus benefitting their own courses of transportation. Prices would not be helped in
any way, because the United States
has a surplus production of wheat
that will make that country an exporter of flour and grain for the next
hundred years. The following figures
show how the volume of wheat production is increasing in the States:
Bushels
1908    634,000,000
1909    684,000,000
1910    737,000,000
"In connection with these statistics showing the increase in the total
nnnunl yield of wheat in the United
Stntes it is most important to note
the words of Mr. C. L. Olmsted, chief
of the Bureau of Statistics at Washington, who has just recently issued
the results of a study on the subject
of population and subsistence. He
combats the view that ngricultural
production will fail to keep pace with
the growth of population, and he
shows that the agriculture of the
United States, after passing through
a phase of decadence incident to the
exploitation of new land, has obtained a secare footing in the contrary direction toward improvement.
"The general trend of production
per acre was a declining one during
the two decades 1876-1885 nnd 1886-
1895, but in the decade 1898-1905 and
from 1908-1909 the mean production
per acre has steadily increased. Mr.
Olmsted shows that the mean production per acre for the lour years,
1906-1909, has increased over the preceding ten years as follows:—
Wheat (per acre)      &B per cent
Corn     7.1 per cent
Rye     6.5 per cent
Potatoes  15.5 per cent
Buckwheat         8.6 per cent
Tobacco  '...   9.7 per cent

PRESS COMMENT
Thursday, September 21, the people of Canada will be given an opportunity to decide whether or not
they desire a larger market for their
products. Reciprocity means progress; "let well alone" means to
Btand still, and to stand still eventu-
'ally leads to retrogression. On the
merits of reciprocity alone the government should be returned to power
w tb an increased majority. But
the Conservatives are attempting to
introduce a number of irrelevant
issues in the campaign, with tbe object of diverting the attention of the
electors from the real question. The
most absurd of these side issueB
which is atpresent being persistently
paraded tit*Iore the Canadian people,
is the claim that a freer commercial
intercourse between tbe two nations
will eventually lead to annexation.
The absurdity of this claim is bo apparent that it will not influence the
voter who po-sesses ordinary intelligence, allhot g i it may catch the
votes of a few ulira-imperialisls who
have conceived the mistaken idea
that the man who works consistently
for the advancement of Canada,without taking the time 'to hourly proclaim his loyalty to the mother
country is necessarily disloyal to
the empire. Tbere is no occasion
for protestations of loyalty at the
pnsjiit time. The allegiance of
the citizens of Canada to the empire
has not yet been questioned. The
man who shows his loyalty to Canada by endeavoring to further her
prosperity, tlius enhancing the
glory of thu empire, cannot be called
a disloyalist. A man's lirst duly
should be to tbe,country in which be
lives, of wbich he is a citizen, and
where he bas property interests.
In eastern Canada thoy are betting four to nun that tbe I.nurier
government will be returned to
power. It is an indication Unit the
consumers desire tho cost of living reduced.
In this province the Liberals will
gain at least two members. Comox-
Atlin, Victnrin nnd Vancouver arc
sure governmenl scuts. In the other
constituencies there will be nn even
fight.
Hon. R. McBride, ns has already
been noted, states that Quebec will
be the storm centre of the political
campaign. In one sense our premier wns right. It was in Montrenl
that "the interests" met and volunteered to contribute half a million
dollars towards the Tory campaign
fund provided Mr Borden consented to obstruct the passage of the
reciprocity agRement. But half a
million is not enough to corrupt the
electorate of ull Canada, even if the
people were susceptible to suoh in
fluences as a party in alliance with
curporate greed can exercise.—Victoria Times.
Howe's Great London Shows
There are many novel acts with
the Great London Shows which are
certain to be well received in every
oity lucky enough tu secure a visit
from the consolidated enterprises.
There are acts which were never
seen/ in America until this show
opened its season of 1911, forthe
reaton that there was no amusement
enterprise great enough tn affnrd the
large salaries which the artists demand, and no iuslitation with sufficient prestige to attract the aiten-
ion of such  celebraied  perfomers.
The Eddy family of acrobats, f r
instance, perform feats which have
never been seen in other shows.
The Great London Circus will exhibit in Grand Forks August 16.
Don't forget that The Sun hns thi
best job printing department in thi
Boundary country.
Remember that every added
subscriber helps to make this
paper better for everybody.

Martin Hiiiiiki.i. has one defeat
and a victory to his credit. With a
true spirit of reciprocity in political
honors, it is his turn to give way to
a new member this fall.

States. It is impossible to treat such
an argument with any kind of re-
spect,if indeed it can be dignified with
the name ot argument, for if it has
any meaning, its meaning is that the
people of Canada would be seduced
from their allegiance bv the prosperity
to follow the larger flow of natural
commerce, for experience of all ages
abundantly justifies that trade is the
moat potent agency of peace, amity
and mutual respect between natiuns.
Nor is this all. The agreement, which
in no way impairs our fiscal policy,
which still maintains at top mast the
fecund principle of British preference,
this agreement hy opening up new
avenues of trade- hitherto closed,
would further improve the friendly
relations which now happily exist between this country and the mother
country on the one hand anrl tho
American republic on the other hand,
and which it is hoped may at no distant date eventually join in a general
treaty of arbitration, the effect of
which would be to remove forever all
possibilities of war between the great
empire of which we are proud to form
a part and the great nation which we
are proud to have as neighbors.
Our time, knowledge and
experience in the printing
business is at your disposal

Day after day when the presiding
ollicer has tried to put the question he
bas been met by diliatory motions, by
enilloss speeches, by obstructive de
vices of every kind, each put forward
on some specious pretext but in reality nothing else than to abuse the free
doin of speech in parliamentary debate. Such pretenses are simply a
clumsy attempt o give color to unwarranted and undignified obstruction.
To overcome that obstruction after a
session whicli has already luted eight
months would uot only mean the continuation of the unseemly spectacle
presented by the opposition in the
house of commons since the resumptions of its sittings on the 18th inst.,
but woultl also mean weeks and
months of wasted time and perhaps
end in the close of tbis season to the
Canad.an producer uf a free American
market. In this condition of things it
hai seemed tu his excellency's advisers
more in accordance with the dignity
of parliament, with the traditions of
those British institutions which all
true Canadians value so highly and
which the present opposition degrade

best interests of the country as a
whole, to remit the iss.ie to the people

Parliament Prorogued
Ottawa, July 27.—Parliament was
prorogued today bv proclamation, and
immediately afterwards a proclamation was issued dissolving the house
and fixing nominations for September
14 and polling on September 21.
When this morning's sittings of the
cabinet council broke up, Sir Wilfrid
Laurier authorized Mr. Fielding to
announce the news.
The minister of finance pioinptly
said; "Gentlemen, parliament has
heen dissolved and elections will take
place.ou Thursday, September 21."
Rumors of dissolution were alloat
all morning, but it was not believed
that the announcement would come so
soon, and it caused the wildest excitement.
The members of the house will
pack up and get away to their constituencies at once. Hon. \V, Tern
pieman expects to leave for the west
about the middle of next week.
The Conservative, members will get
away without delay.
First Thought Not Sold
P. Burns, the big Canadian cattle
man and packer, has made the following announcement concerning the reported sale of the First Thought mine,

I wish to give these the fullast

DISFIGURED
v.;k
Mothers Should  Realize What
Neglect of Skin-Troubles
May Mean to Children.
A lifetime or disfigurement and suffering'
often results from the neglect, In Infancy ur
childhood, of minor affcctloni of the skin and
icnlp. A mother overlooks a little rash or
attempts some simple treatment and in a
day, perhaps, the little one Is covered with
severe eczema or a similar distressing trap-'
tion.   Then the struggle for a cure begins.
A multitude of remedies are tried, doctor
after doctor consulted and hospitals visited,
but ton often the suffering extends, without
substantial relief, from days to weeks, weeks to
months und month-, to years. Added to this ia \
the evcr-prpsr.it (ear that the itching, burning
und disfiguration will become chronic, mar-
rime future welfare and making life miserable.
Jn thc prevention o( the simple skin troubles]
from which all tills suffering so often arise*
and In establishing a condition of skin health
that makes eruptions impossible, mothers ara
rjsured that nothing Is purer, sweeter or mora
effective than Cuticura Soap aod Cuticura
Ointment. And greater still, if possible, is
thc success at these simple household remedies
tn the treatment of tlie severer skin affections
Ihenwelves. With the lirst warm bath with
(.uticura .Soap and gentle application of
Cuticura Ointment, the Itching and burning
of ecxema cease, the child falls into a refreshing sleep, the mother reals and for lbe firat
time, posfllblv, In many weeks peace falls on
a distract "J household. Frequently a single
«t\ke of Cuticura Soup and boi of Cuticura
Ointment are sufficient
Positive as Is this statement, It Is Justified
by more than thirty yeara of pronounced
euccess. To quote but a single Instance,
llobert Mann, of Proctor, Minnesota, says:
"Our hoy was born In Toronto on Oct.
13, 1D08, and when three months old a slight
Tish appeared on his cheek. What appeared
lo he a water bli-tter would form. W^en it
broke m«t i "r would run out. starting new

and one In particular, the   Remedy,
almost nut the infant Into convulsions. The
iam.lv doctor prescribed for him and told us
to bathe the baby In buttermilk. This did
not do any good, no we took him to a hospital.
He was treated as in out -patient twice a wet*!<
wid he got worse. If anything. We decided
that It could not be cured and must run Its
course and so we Just kept his arms bandaged
to his side to prevent tils tearing his flesh.
We left Toronto and shortly after our arrival

The doctor in order to save the siirht

one wa? injured, voluntarily immured
himself in a room made totally dark

adopt this course and the ingenuity

on accurate record of his impressions
when he at last looked again upon
Vie light after the supreme monies',
at which he satisfied himself that he
wa. not blind.
He found that in the nine months'
darkners his eyes had lost all sense'of
color. The world was black, white

of distance. His brain interpreted, the

Whan Baranats Wart Bald.
The title of baronets ia exactly 300
years old.
It was in the reign of Oood King
James that' baronets first came into
existence. To-day, you could hardly
tell a baronet Irom a banker. But
in the year 1611, when James I. needed ready money, and created two hundred "little barons" to supply him
wi'.l. cash, they swaggered about in
the baldrics and sashes, and behaved in the courtliest of fashions.
Each baron.?., in order to justify
hi. title, had to maintain a small
army ot thirty soldiers for three years.
In this way the crafty king not only
increased his revenue, but actually
lightened his expenses!
It is not generally known that tha
title of "baronetesa has twice been
bellowed on women. One ol these
waa the mother ol a Dutch general.
The other was a Nottingham lady
named Dame Maria Bolles, who won
her war into the good graces ot
Charles'I.. and reoaWad tht title from
hit hands.

sleep was broken and un-refreshing.
I perspired freely at the slightest
exertion. I had pains in my back
and Rheumatism developed, from
which I suffered for two years.

In the Springtime—Disease is Ready

the Blood is Thin
Rich,  Red  Blood  is the  Greatest of
Germicides—You Can Get the
Blood Right by Using
Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food
When the blood is rich and red,
when it is largely composed of red
corpusles, there is little chance for
disease germs. They cannot thrive
in the system which is filled with
good blood.
But in the spring the blood is
generally thin, weak and watery. It
lacks the vitalizing *■ red corpuscles
nnd you become an easy prey to the
germs of disease which seem to lurk
everywhere at this time of year.
You can fortify yourself against
the germs of disease by using Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food. This great restorative treatment forms new, red
corpuscles in the blood, makes the
blood rich, red and healthy.
Weakness, tired feelings, stomach
derangements, and disorders of the
nervous system soon disappear when
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is used.
This medicine cures by tlje building-up process, and for this reason
its benefits are lasting. Nearly everybody needs something in the spring
to enrich the blood and tone up the
system, and is would be impossible
to get a more satisfactory spring tonic

Sorrento. In southern Italy, la a colony
ot villas und hotels, ninny of which aro
surrounded by orange grovea. The
place la built on a crescent shaped
rock at tbe foot of wblcb Is the margin of tbe Mediterranean. A part of
thia margin laps a beach, and on tbla
beach are fishermen's boats, and tbere
alto the women do tht family washing.
One morning Seymour Wilcox, a
young American traveler, was looking
down over a low stone wall built for
tbe protection of persons on the cliff
above, wben he saw a young girl
washing clothes ln tbe sea. Being
aome VNIO feet above ber, he could not
tee what she was like, but "distance
lends enchantment to tbe view." and
he could, even from tbat distance, detect a certain grace In ber movements.
Be went down on to tho beacb for a
nearer view.
He found a girl of fifteen, though
at that age and even mucb younger
an Italian girl la a woman. She possessed the dark hair and eyes of her
people and a good figure. Ber arms,
from exposure, were brown, but they
were abapely. Wilcox watched her for
a time, then walked past her and
smiled at ber. Be not only smiled, but
spoke to her. for he knew something of
tbe Italian language. He learned that
ber name was Marie and ber father
was a fisherman. After a brief chat
be returned to tbe town above.
But thc next morning be looked
down again over tbe wall. a?nd. although be knew he would be playing
wltb edged tools, seeing Marie below, be yielded to a temptation to go
down again und bave a few words
wltb ber. This time the girl met bim
iwtth a smile Indicating tbat abe waa
very mucb pleased tbat be bad come
again. On this visit he talked to ber
longer tban before.
Wilcox continued these visits. Be
found a wineshop down among tbese
fishermen's quarters and would go ln
tbere for a liter of wine and to smoke.
Sometimes he would take Marie ln to
bave a glass with htm. There was
nothing unusual In this In Italy. The
Italian wines bave very little alcohol
In them and are drunk by the women
and children the same as tbe men. Betides, a wineshop In Italy Is a very
Afferent affair from a saloon ln Amer-
'*a.
The landlord of the hotel where Wil
cox was stopping knew nothing of tits
descents to the fishermen's quartern or
he would have warned bim against
going tbere. Tbe young man mention-
ed the matter to no one. He knew he
waa taking a risk, but not bow much
of a risk. Besides, he was a fearless
fellow and at an age wbere a man of
courage Is more apt to court tban
avoid danger. Nevertheless be did not
sufficiently realise .the position In
wblcb be was placing himself to go
armed.
One night Wilcox went down to tbe
beacb and. culling for Marie at her
father's ivtlnge. invited ber to go for
a ride out on the water In her father's
boat, tbe father to sail It Marie transmitted the request to ber father, who
agreed to the plan. Indeed, no one
bad manifested a desire to Interfere
with Wilcox's attentions to tbe girl.
Whether those nearest ber were expecting to get money out of tbe Americano or whether they were permitting
ber to lure bim Into a position wbere
tbey could rob him didn't matter lo
bim. bent as he was un enjoying ber
•Kitty.
After a couple of hours' aall the
party returned to tbt abore. and Wilcox uked Ibe father and daughter to
go Into tbe wineshop for refreshment.
Too father declined for both himself
and bla daughter, aaytng It waa late
aad ht must be up early In tbt morning to begin bla day's fishing. Wilcox bade tbem good nlgbt. and, aa It
wat early for bim. wont Into tbe wtne-
abop alone for bit tipple and bla
amok*.
There waa no out In tbo place except tbo woman, wbo tet tbe wlnt before tbo American and left bim. There
wit a fireplace lo tbo room, and. tbo
nights being chilly tn Italy, Wilcox recalled her and atked ber to bring la
a few fagots and build a fire. Sbe
waa surprised at tbe request for fuel
la enormously expensive In Italy; bnt
knowing bim to bo an American,
which to tbtte people means bavlng
plenty of money, tbo acceded to bla
request Wilcox tat down beforo tbo
Art with tbo wine betide bim and
drank and trooked and, without Intending It foil asleep.
I Be awoke with a atari. Wtat caused
him to feel tbat be was In danger be
did not know. It might bave been a
blow that wns threatening him or it
might bave been tbe fact of a sudden
realization that be bad been ever since
be first taw Marie taking a frightful
risk. In any event he was conscious
that death was ln the room. The
fagots had burned out There was a
bright light near the entrance, which
shone on Wilcox's back and which
cast a shadow on tbe wall directly
over the fireplace. Tbe shadow waa
that of a figure with the right arm
raised above the bead. Tbe shadow
">.Kt liy the end ot this arm waa dim-
cult for Wilcox to make out It seem
ed to be a pointed stick beld by a fist
The mind works quickly ln tbe presence of danger, real or fancied, and ln
a traction of a second he bad determined that a man woe behind him
witb bis right hand raised and holding
a dagger.
"Senora!" cried the American sh'irp.
ly, calling to the woman wli i
served tbe wtue.
The shadow flickered and .Usup-
peared.
There was no reply to the summons,
and the young man called again:
•'Senora!"
Presently the woman, yawning,
fame slowly Into the room.
"1 find myself, senora." said Wilcox,
"with not even money enough about
me to pay you for tbe wine 1 have ordered. Bave you any one here who
will go up to my hotel with a check,
get It cashed by the landlord and bring
me the money?'
"Yes. senor, but you can as well pay
for the wine when yon come for
more."
"No. senora; I go away early tn tbe
i morning to Naples.   Besides, tbere are
otber payments 1 wish to make down
here among you good people.    I Intended to bring money, but forgot It"
"Very well, senor. If you desire lt
I will send my son. Be Is ln bed, but
1 can awaken bim."
Wilcox took a blank check from bla
portmanteau and filled a check tor
!i00 lira ($1001 and wrote on tbe back
of lt a request to tbe landlord of hla
hotel to send him the money It called
for by bearer. Tben he gave It to
the landlady, and. ordering another
litre of wine and lighting a cigarette,
he made it appear that he would await
tbe return of his messenger.
But be hud no Idea of watting for
the money. Be knew tbe man who
was about to kill him wben be awoke
from slumber would waylay the boy
who bud gone for It Possibly others
who knew of the fact that riOO lira
was to be curried at midnight from
the town down to tbe fishers' village
would also make an attempt to appropriate It There was still another
possibility. Tbe landlord might surmise thut bis guest bud been cornered
und required the money for a ransom
In this event be might bave the messenger sbudowed on bis return by a
policeman.
Wilcox realised tbe fact tbat be waa
at the fishers' 'village near 12 o'clock at
night wbere It was as dangerous to
remain as to climb to the top of the
cliff. He kept his eye on the wail for
awhile, but. seeing no reup|iearuiii'p nf
the Hlindilw. Dually arose from his chair
aud paced the Door, castlug glances at
the entrances of tbe room. Presently
be walked out tbe door tbrough which
the landlady bad gone aud made bis
way Into a kitchen. Tbere. among otber things, lay a carving knife with a
long, thin blade and a sharp point He
grasped It and for the first time since
be bad seen the shadow drew a breath
of relief. So far as be knew, no one
taw bim take the knife, and. concealing It under his coat he went buck
Into the room be had left
Wilcox was uncertain wbat to do.
Should be remain wbere be was till
day, or sbould he risk going up io the
town wltb no other defense than a
carving knife? If beset it might be
by several persons, if be remained
wbere be was, lu case of attack be
might put his back against a corner
of tbe room and stand off a number
of UHSulluuts. Every vestige of recklessness had deserted him. Be was
mad. fighting mad. but In that state
a man's faculties art often tbe sharpest Be resolved to ttay wbere be
was.
Sufficient time for a messenger to go
to tbe hotel and return had elapsed.
Wilcox had no Idea tbat tbo messenger would come back or, It he did
come, that he would have the money
wltb him. He waa not thinking of bla
500 lira, which be would be glad to
pay for bis life. He was wondering If
tbt msn wbose shadow bc had seen
or some one else bad appropriated It
This occupied bis thoughts when suddenly tbe outer door waa opened and
In stepped two persons
Tbey were a boy ot fourteen and—
Marie!
Marie, approaching Wilcox, handed
bim an envelope containing tbe money
be had tent for. Be looked at ber,
plainly asking wltb hit eyes an explanation.
"I knew, tlgnor.'* tald Marie, "that
there la one who since you first spoke
to me Is Jealous of you. I found tonight tbat be would attack you and
watched the place. 1 taw bim come
In here and followed bim. I beard you
call for a messenger to go tor money.
I did not believe Giovanni would too.
but 1 thought It best to go witb the
boy. Giovanni disappointed me. Be
waylaid us and demanded tbe money,
but wben be knew 1 bud It be upbraided me and went away."
"So you are disappointed In your
lover. Marie—tbat be should rob, but
not tbat he should murder?"
"The oue was for money and tbe
other for love."
"1 see.   There Is a great difference."
Tbe matter being explained. Wilcox
lost his apprehension. Since there
appeared to be but one man concerned,
be resolved, armed wltb tbe carving
knife he bnd captured, to go up to bis
hotel. Having paid his record, be set
out ln the darkness and arrived without being molested.
The next day Wilcox sent a note to
tbe father of Marie that he would fnr
nlsh the means to send the girl ti
school. Tbe offer was accepted, and
sbe went for three years to a convent,
at the end of which time ahe married
and emigrated to America.
Wilcox at tbe request of tbe girl wbt
had saved him did aot report tbo mat

Sculpto*-'* Early Struggles.
Mr. Bertram Mackennal, A.R.A..
has been mentioned aB the sculptor
commissioned to execute the King
Edward Memoriul to be placed in the
Mall facing Marlborough House.
Mr. Mackennal is an Australian by
birth, and the son of a sculptor. From
hiB earliest years he determined to
devote himsell to the art wbich his
father had, followed, but his path to
success lay by no means in easy
places. In Paris he had a terrible
struggle lor actual existence, and endured such trials and privations as
would have quenched the spirit, and
perhaps killed the art, in a weaker
man.
He came to London, and has gone
•tea-ily forward ever since. Mr. Mackennal live? in a quaint, old-world
house at Marlborough Hill, a Temark-
able feature ol which is a courtyard
that divides the house into two parts:
there are three studios attached to
th. house, in one of which Mr. Mackennal is certain to be lound at work
at any time between breakfast and
dinner hours. He it, indeed, an Indefatigable worker—snd smoker.

Tht City ol Parlt.
The founders of Paris, emigrating
from some Oreek or Etruscan country
on the shores ol the Mediterranean
Bea, rowed their galleys up the river
Seine. They took possession of tha
island in that stream on which their
city is built and, according to the legends that have come down to tht
present time, called it "Baris," which
is Greek lor a boat then used upon
the river Nile, whence Paris. Tha
island on which the adventurers landed was held to typify a boat, and to
this day the coat ol arms ol that ta-
moui city is an ancient galley.
WHITSUNTIDE CUSTOMS.
Remarkable Obstrvsnees  Art   Found
In Rural England.
It would be idle to inquire the origin of some of the extraordinary customs which still obtain at Whitsuntide, for the beginning of many ol
them is lost in obscurity.
All the history that can be gathered
of them is that they have been observed Irom time immemorial, and
that local sentiment will not permit
them to die out. ,
Not the least remarkable ie one that
is dear to the hearts ol the good'peo-
ple ol Birdlip. a usually quiet village
in the Cheltenham district. Down a
hill which the neighborhood boaste a
substantial round cheesj. is set rolling, with the younger and more active
ol the population in hot pursuit.
Before it can be captured many cf
the pursuers are rolling, too, but none
so last as the cheese, which generally
lulls to one ot the crowd who is able
to keep his feet. It would be interesting to know the why and wherelore
ol this cheese-rolling, but there Is
nothing to show thiB.
The County of Northampton has a
Whitsuntide observance which is only
kept up once in twenty years, the
next year for it being 1928. It dates
from the reign of "Good Queen Bess,"
and the scene of it is the village of
Corby.
Its object is to commemorate a
charter granted to the Inhabitonts by
Queen Elizabeth which freed the
knights of the shire from certain military duties, and other folk Irom serving on juries at Northampton.
In the small hours of Whit-Monday
morning the roads and byways of the
parish are stopped up, and toll is de.
manded ol all who would pass thereby. Should this demand not be com.
plied with, the pedestrian is seized
and hoisted on to a stout pole, upon
which he is carried through the village, escorted by the jeering populace,
whose lung-power is given lull scope
for the occasion.
Whitsuntide is essentially a religious season, and perhaps one of the
most remarkable celebrations ol it is
that which takes place in Cornwall.
It is held in what is known as the
Gwennup Pit, and in commemoration
ol the years gone by when John Wes-
ley conducted religious gatherings
there.
The service ia of a most impressive
character, and'on occasion it has attracted more than 10,000 devout Wes-
leyans to the spot. No distance is
to great for them to travel, and some
have been known to come from such
distant parts of the country as Lancashire and Yorkshire.
The mention ol Cornwall recalls the
fact that in the year 1540 a church
there was struck by lightning during
the course ol the service on Whit-
Sunday morning. Many ot the worshipers were injured, the storm being
described as "awful" and as a "tearful judgment" upon the church.
Superstition is not quite so rife in
these enlightened dayB, taut there are
etill people in this country who get up
unusually early on Whit-Sunday
morning in order to Bee the sun rise.
They firmly believe that whatsoever is asked of the Almighty at the
instant the sun rises on Whit-Sunday
morning is sure to be granted. In
years gone by this wos a widely accepted superstition, in which there
are still believers to be met with in
the hills and valleys of Derbyshire
and elsewhere. They declare, too,
that their requests have been granted.
A veracious chronicler rejoicing in
the appropriate name of "Arise
Evans" has it on record that he "went
up a hill to see the sun rise betimes
on Whit-Sunday morning and saw it
at its rising skip, play, dance, and
turn about like a wheel."
In those days many marriages used
to result from the mingling of the
sexes in the various games and amusements peculiar to Whitsuntide. The
young men and maidens came more
together at that season than at any
other ot the year.
It was looked upon as the first
"blush" of summer, and as lending
itself to outdoor pastimes retarded by
the cold winds ol the earlier days ol
Eastertide and spring.
Did Not Trust Council.
Under a somewhat curious will left
by Mr. Patrick Murphy, whose estate
totalled $517,000. the town of Newry,
County Down, Ireland, has been bequeathed a large portion of the property to pay off the local municipal
debt. Mr. Murphy states in hia will
that as the bequest may be insufficient (or the purposo, and "as I have
no confidence either in the ability or
good sense of the present urban councillors, it is my will that my residuary
personal estate sliall not be handel
over to the board lor a period ol 21
years trom the dato ot my death," tbt
interest and dividends to be invested.
Mr. Murphy directs that certain
houses are not to be sold, but the
rents are to be applied in perpetuity
for the reduction of tbo rates.
GRADUATION GOWN.
A Simple and Girlish
Design For tht Event
Tet, It Is rather early ln tbe season
to talk of graduation gowns, but
tempus bus a fashion of fuglttng
quicker thnn schedule time In these
strenuous days, so before one bus a
chance lo turn around the sweet girl
"grad" will be needing her new gown.
The Illustration shows a delightfully
simple and girlish design for tbe occasion. Tbe tunic lacing la one of tbe
noticeable features, and altogether tbe
gown is "sweetly pretty," as our English cousins say.
"Spooks" Terrorist Family.
A curious story comet Irom Dunfermline. The recent occurrence ol
four fires in rapid succession in the
household of Thomas Wstson, has
had the effect of terrorising the family. These outbreaks have each had
their origin in a cause which it inscrutable to the occupants ot the
house, and Mrs. Watson, who hails
trom the Highlands, imagines that a
supernatural agent hat been at work.
She, with others in the domicile, have
lately been living in dread. Alraid to
go to bed o' nights, members ol tho
family have sat up to watch lor further manifestation! ol tha itraoge,
uncanny, "unseen powtr."
Boudoir 8ttt For Summer.

scarfs, bags, pincushions and a largo
number ot practical articles, aro

materials and wltb pretty minor variations ln tbe way of trimming, wbich:
makes tbem very fascinating to women In general, says tbe Dry Goods,
Economist
One of tbe daintiest of boudoir sets,
la shown In white cotton voile, with a;
pink ribbon design running through it
and large pink roses placed on tbo rib.-
bon at Intervals In border effect .
This design adapts Itself admirably;
to tbe various methods of trimming.
Cut Into strips tbe material is used1
as an attractive border all around tbs
square pillow or In two vertical borders across lbe long pillow. The long
pincushion and corset bag bave this
border running tbrough the center.
An effective new trimming tbat lt a
revival of an old mode, old enough,
however, to be again called new, la
tbe fringe and passementerie border
of macrame cord. By the way, wide
bands of lace crocheted In Une macrame cord, copying venlse patterns,
are being used as blgb style dress
trimmings, and this ts probably responsible for the reappearance of this klncl

A Guide to Good Manners.
If you are puzzled about a question
of etiquette and bave not time to consult an older or more experienced friend
or relative apply tbe tiolden Itule—to

will almost always bring you out of
your diltlciilty wltb flying colors. Tbe
expression "a nature's gentleman" Is
often applied to some simple minded
and unsophisticated man who Is tbus
guided, for, whether we be gentle or
simple, tbe truest good breeding Is
tbown by our care for tbe feelings ot
others. Tbe real "great lady" Is ss
thoughtful snd considerate for those

would be for royalty, tbougb sbe would
