Subjects of Soils and Winter
Pruning Discussed Last
Friday Night
One (if thc most interesting,
us well as being thoroughly
practical, was the meeting of
the Kettle Vallev Farmers'
Institute, held in tlie city hall
last Friday night.
James Rooke, the president,
iiftroduced C. C. Clark, of
Kamloops, who took as his
subject "Soils." The speaker
divided the soil into .two
parts—first, chemical; second,
mechanical. Clay soil is made
up of very small particles and
sticky loam, and sandy soil is
made up of very small particles of quartz. The three
plant foods in the soil are nitrogen, phosphorous and lime.
Mr. Clark very clearly pointed out the difference between
the arid soil and humid soils.
The physical condition of the
soil waa very important. In
this district he thought that
nitrogen was lack.ng, and ad
vised sowing a ctover crop of
hairy vetch late in the fall and
plowing it under the next
spring. This should produce
forty pounds of nitrogen to
the acre. Rotation of crops
was better than steady crops,
because the former kept up
the vitality of the soil. He
strongly advocated the sowing
of cover crops in orchards,
and suggested growing shade
trees to protect the soil from
the hot summer's sun. Clover
made a first-class cover crop,
but. it should be taken off in
the fall. In closing his speech,
the speaker referred to the
cement pipe question, and
said, "by all means use it for
irrigation purposes."
M. fc.. Middleton, provincial
horticulturist, discussed the
subject of winter priming in
a thoroughly practical manner. Many question were
asked and answered.
Mr. Twiddle, of .Stony creek,
was called on by the chairman. He endorsed Mr. Mi d-
illeton's ideas, as he had
proven them to be first-class
by practical experience. Hairy
veteh should grow very well
here, as this was an ideal climate for it.
On motion of W. A. Cooper
and J. T. Lawrence, a vote of
thanks was tendered the
staff ol the district attorney'.! oflice
enme to the court room. The en- '•
closure where the attorneys wer*]
seated wat also crowded with their
friendi, it being avident that a hig
sensation waa expected. James B.
McNamara pleaded guilty to tha
charge of murder, and John J. Mc-
Kumar* confessed to dynamiting
the Llewellyn Iron Works.
James K McNamara's brief confession, penned hy hia own hand
Monday alternoon, and bearing
many evidences of a man little
•killed in letters, wat made public
on Tuesday.    It is at tollows:
"I, James B. McNamara, defend-
dant in the case of the People, having heretofore pleaded guilty to the
crime of murder, desire lo make
this statement of fact (and this is
the truth):
"On the night of September 30th,
1910, at 5:45 p.m., I placed in Ink
alley, a portion ef the Times build
ing, a auitcaae containing IK sticks
nf 80 per cent dynamite, set to explode at 1 o'clock the next morn'ng
It was the intention • to injure the
building and scare the owner, I did
not intend to take the life of any
one. I sincerely regret that these
unfortunate men loat their lives. If
tbe giving of life would bring, them
back, I would gladly give it. In
(act, an pleading guilty to murder in
the firat degree, I bave placed my
life in the handt of the state.
"(Signed) James B. McNamara."
On Tueaday James B. McNamara,
confessed murderer, wu sentenced
to life imprisonment by Judge Waler Bordwell. Hit broilier, Joba J.
McNamara, secretary of the International Astocialion of Bridge and
Structural Iron Workers, wbo con
tested to tbe dynamiting of the
Llewellyn Iron Worki, was sentenced to fifteen years in the peni
lentiary. Twenty-one persons lost
their lives in the Timet disaster. No
one wts killed ia the Llewellyn affair.

Traveler Dies Suddenly
A sad fatality was reported from
Penticton last week, the victim being C. O. Douglas, a commercial
traveler, who arrived in that town a
couple of days previously from Keremeos by the auto  stage.   He was in
weak state of health, and it was
evident that he was much worse as
a result of the exposure incident to
the journey in the cold weather He
was, therefore, ohliged tn remain in
his room, and on Friday C. S. Russell, who occupied an adjoining
room, heard a heavy thud as of
••someone falling, and rushing in he
found the room partially in flames
and Douglas prostrate on the floor
over tbe blazing lamp, which behind
evidently knocked over, causing it
to explode. Russell put out the
Maze and assisted tbe unfutuiiat'
gentleman, who wss placed in hed,

Douglas was a guest at ths Yul
hotel in this city a few days beiore
ihe fatality. He leaves a wife and

"Say no move about It. say no
more," Lord Merton said. He seemed
to have some little difficulty In tlie
articulation of his words. "Let us
shako hands on the bargain and foi-
cet the past. 1 was profoundly Interested In your long letter, and 1 must
confess to some litle curiosity to sec
your other friends, especially Mrs.
Venner, who seems to have played so
noble a part In the story. I understand that she and her husband are
down here. 1 suppose you made them
more or less comfortable, which must
have been a rather difficult task
In the circumstances. However, I
have arranged to have all the old servants Lack tomorrow, and lt will be
some considerable time before I let

and enjoy yourselves, and let us meet
at dinner as If nothing had happened.
I don't want lt to appear that there
has been anything like a quarrel between us."
So saying. Lord Merlon turned and
proceeded to his own room, leaving
Beth In a state ol speechless admiration. It was no diflcrent from anything she had expected, that she felt

no need to tell her that the Interview
with the master of the house had been
a smooth one. She could judge that
by the way ln which the lovers were
walking side by side. Venner came
and stood by his wife's side.
"So, that's all right," he said. "So
far as one can Judge they have managed to propitiate the ogre."
"What do you mean by calling a
man an ogre In bis own house?" the
voice of Lord Merton asked at the
same moment. "For some'few minutes' I have been keeping an eye on

Women's Secrets
There is one man in the United States who has perhaps heard
more women's secrets than any other man or woman in tha
country. These secrets are not secrets of guilt or shame, but
Ihe secrets of suffering, and they have been confided to Dr.
R. V. Pierce in the hope and expectation oi advice and help.
That lew of these women have been disappointed in their expectations is proved by the faot that 98 per cent, ol all women
treated by Dr. Pierce or his able stiff, have been absolutely
and altogether cured. Such a record would be remarkable if
the cases treated were numbered by hundreds only. But when
lhat record applies to the treatment of more than half-a-mil-
lion women, in a practice ot over 40 years, it is phenomenal,
and entitles Dr. Pierce to the gratitude accorded him by women, aa lhe first of
specialists in the treatment ol women's diseases.

"Then you are not annoyed with
ts?" Vera asked. "You are not displeased with the way we have' taken
possession of your house? I am afraid
that Indirectly we have been the cause
of a great scandal."
"Oh, don't worry yourself about
that", Lord Merton said, breezily.
There have been far worse scandals
than this ia great houses before now;
and, at any rate, It does pot touch us;
I am afraid you have been rather inconvenienced here, and that the
Grange has not upheld its reputation
'or hospitality. Still, I hope It will be
all light tomorrow, and I sincerely
trust that you can see your way to
stay here for some little time to come.
I am going to ask my sister, Lady
Glynn, to come down and act the part
ot hostess. Somebody will have to
introduce Beth to the county as my
future daughtcr-ln-law."
"You ere pleased with the arrangement," Vera asked demurely.
"Indeed I am," Lord Merton replied. "You do not know what an eccentric lot we are. 1 should not have
been at all surprised If Charles had
come home with some curiosity ln the
way of a bride, and I am only too profoundly grateful to find that he has
made so sycet a choice. But tell me,
you will stay here some little time—"
"I am afraid not," Venner said regretfully. If you will allow us to come
back a little later on, I am sure that
my wife and myself will be very
pleased. I have ns doubt that Evors
will be Impatient to claim his bride,
but I hope he will wait for a month
or two, at least. You see, I have a
bride of my own, though, tn a way,
we are old married people. I don't
know whether Charles has told you
anything of our story but If you would
like to hear lt "
Lord Merton Intimated that he had
already done so. He expressed a hope
that Venner and his wife would return
again a little later on; then, making
some excuse, he returned to the house
leaving Venner and Vern together.
For some little time they wandered
across the park very Bllently, for the
hearts of both were full, and this was
one of those moments when words are
not neccessary to convey thought from
one mind to another. Presently Evors
and Beth appeared In the distance and
Joined the others."
"Well," Venner said with a smile,
it Is some time since I saw two people
look more ridiculously happy than you
two. i_. it, I am sincerely glad to find
that the ogre Is only one in name. My
dear Charles, your father Is quite a
delightful person. I quite understood
from what you fold me that we had a
lot of trouble In store for us. On the
contrary, he seems to be as pleased
with the course of events as we are."
"He seems to have altered so much
lately," Evors said. "At any rate, he
has been particularly good to me, and
I am not likely to forget 't. Behold
in me a reformed character, ready to
settle down to a country life with
Beth by my side "
"Not quite, yet", Venner said, hastily. "You will hav© to curb you Impatience for a bit; you must not forget how Vera suffered for the sake of
you both, and how patiently I waited
for my happiness. You must promise
us that the marriage will not take
place under two months, or I give you
a solemn warning that we sliall not
be there.    Our honeymoon "
"Of couise Charles will promise,"
Beth said, indignantly. "Oh, I could
never dream of being married unless
Vera were present. And, after all,
what are two months, when you have
a whole life time before you? I am
sure that Charles will agree with me."
'I don't Indeed," Evors said, candidly. "Still, I'm not going to be disagreeable, and Beth knows that she
has only to look at me with those imploring eyes of hers to get absolutely
her own way."
They left lt at that and gradually
drifted apart again. When Vera and
her husband returned presently to the
Grange, the setting sun shone fully
In their faces, flinging their shadows
far behind. Venner paused Just for a
moment under the sombre shadow of
a clump of beeches, and drew his wife
to his side.
"One moment," he said. "We have
not yet decided where we are going.
1 have everything In readiness ln London, and I suppose that you are not
lacking In the matter of wardrobe.
Don't tell me, while having everything
that woman ean want In the way of
dress, lhat yon have nothing to wear."
"I won't" Vera snid softly. f*My
dear boy. can't yon see how glad I
shall he to ho nlone with you at lust?
Everything Is going well here, and
Belli Is entirely happy. You have
been very good and patient, nnd I will
keep you waiting no longer. If you
so will It, and I I hink yon tlo, let lt

THE'response to our announcement of this contest has been most gratifying—descriptions and photographs have been received from all parte of Canada.   We believe,
however, that in some provinces there tare examples of work superior to any that havs
yet been described in the photographs and descriptions already received.
YOUR ontry may be one of the thirty-six
Thero arc four $100,000 cash prlzeo for
each Province. Thus you are In competition
only with those surrounded by the same conditions as yourself.
The contest Is so arranged that tho amount
ot cement you have used makes no difference
(except for Prise "A"). Neither do you have
to bo an expert photographer or trained writer.
We want facts, not art or essays. Entries will
be Judged from a practical, common-sonse
standpoint. So don't pay particular attention
to grammar or punctuation. Just tell, plainly
and simply, as you would in talking to Neighbor Jonea, on thc next concession, how you
built tho silo, or the barn or cistern. As for
tho photograph, that neod not worry you. Your
son's or daughter**) camera will do nicely.
In any event, do not let the idea of having
a photograph made deter you from entering
tho competition. Your local dealer has been
requested to help In cases where tt In nol convenient for tho farmer to procure a camera
In the neighborhood. Thus you arc on an
equal footing with every other contestant.
Let us repeat, we want ns many facte about
the use of concrete on thc farm as wo can get.
We knew that the farmers who are using It
would be the best fitted In give us these facts.
That's why the contest was started.
If a neighbor stopped at your gate on his
way from market and asked you how you
built that new silo, you would be glad to toll
him. wouldn't you? And you'd probably
describe every step ln its construction, tell
him what the materials cost, how much labor
was required, and why lt Is better than the
old one. Now, since we can't stop at your
gate, we have to ask you to write this same
description. We want to make ll worth yeur
while.    So we offer theso prizes.
Every dealer who sells "PANADA" Cement is supplied with circulars giving particulars ot tho prise contest. Your dealer
will give you ono If you usk for It. Or, If you
prefer, you can use tho attached coupon or a
post card. Hend it tn us, and you'll receive

The salary bylaw now pending
before the city council is an imposition on tha ratepayers of Grand
Forks, and a vigorous protest
against its adoption should be made.
The mayor and  aldermen who are
■* i
now   clamoring   for   remuneration
knew tha custom under which
former councils served, and they
should bave made the fnct known
to the people that they were not willing to accept office on the same conditions, in which event men of more
public spirit would undoubtedly
have been chosen. This would have
been the proper mode of procedure.
Instead of adopting tbis method,
however, lhe members who think
they are entitled to remuneration
wailed until the fag-end of the term,
and tben make an attempt to railroad a salary bylaw through the
council. This looks a great deal like
obtaining olliee by deceptive means,
nnd that it is resented by the people
is abundantly evidenced by public
opinion on the subject.
With theexceptiou of Aid. Bob
tbron, none of the members of  the
present council  have devoted  very
much of tbeir time to the welfare of
the city.   The mayor has   certainly
not had one-half the official duties
to perform that his predecessors
ware burdened with. Aid. Davis,
chairman of finance committee,
probably knows a little—but ouly
a little—more about the city's finan-
cies tbau the man in tbe moon. As
a rule the city is financed by the
clerk—and the Eastern TownBhps
bank. Aid. Smith, of the water and
light department, is a supporter of
the bylaw, although a few years ago
be was bitterly opposed to such a
proposition. Tht duties of his department during tbe past year have
not been sufficiently laboriaus to
warrant a very high salary. The
work hss mainly been done by the
city employees. Aid. Michener is
only a cittspaw in tha hands of tbe
otber salary members. He was
elected to the council only a couple
months ago, and his election was
biought about so quietly lhat not
even Tbe Snn was aware of the
event until month a after it bad oo
curred. He has only attended a few
meetings. None of the other alder-
men have been present at more than
one-half of the sessions during Ihe
quent taxes is a sign of prosperity—
in the Conservative newspaper
The best advertisers in British
Columbia are McBride, Bowser ifc
Co., of Victoria. Their ads. are
written in tbe most attractive style
and tbey pay a higher rate than any
other business firm.—Victoria Times.
The "better terms" agitation is
ing. Some of the British Columbia municipalities are now asking for better terms from tbe Victoria government... Thi» will probably have the effect of diminishing
the ardour of Premier McBride's advocacy of this subject.
EVEN if tlie bylaw is defeated, the
present council will be the costliest
tbat the city has had for a nuitibei
of years. It inaugurated its term
by increasing the salary of the city
solicitor to 875 per month. Mr.
Sutton was elected solicitor for the
oorporatfon a few years ago with the
specific agreement that the salary of
tbe office was to be reduced from
pi to $50, If he had become tirtd
of serving at the latter figure, he
had the alternative of resigning.
There was nn necessity fur the raise,
as tbe work or the office had mil
increased. Other cases of generosity
might lie cited, but one as a sampl,
will suffice: It cost the present ad
ministration over $S{) to have the
financial statement printed, whereas
in former years the cost hut never
exceeded $40.

that statement we promise to promptly return all the money you pay us for

Several pens, notably pans fi, 21,

As foreshadowed at the outset of
the contest, several of the White Leghorn pens ara no* in the heavy milt
In aome pens this was caused by ton
early hatching, but in three pens this
is caused by the faet that the birds
were laying before received at Hastings Park, and aa usual in auch cases
they have stopped laying and gone
into molt. These birds have every
appearance of having been feed too
rich rati ,n prior to the competition.

From many parts of the world our
exchange table is the recipient of
many magazines, and in our judgment
the practical mind permeates a large
percentage of the volumes. In the
hurried hours of business, we glean
from their pages the pith of business
ways which adds a germinating force
conducive to the healthy growth of
our ever optimistic arena, ahd again
in the quiet hours, from a perusal of
these magazines, we find pleasure in
the muse and know that tha classical
mind goes hand in hand with the
practical. Thus from the exehangr
table we have a double pleasure, and
yet another in  complimenting those
„ responsible for  publications   of  such
... standard.

The Bsautiful Picture for Grand Forks Sun and Montreal Family Herald and Weekly Star Subscribers
this Season.   c_An Inspiration of Love and
Affection—cyi Picture that will be like a
Member  of  the  Family—A   Daily
Study for Old and Young
rPHK Family Herald and Weakly Star of Montreal, acknowledged to be
I the greatest and best family and farm paper nn the continent, has on
many ncnaaiona given its readers mnst delightful premium pictures,
but this season they have secured wbat is beynnd any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper reader*. It is entitled "Home
Again" nnd describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation.
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winner
of mnny prizes at dog snows, the pride of tha family and neighborhood,
has been stolen, and after many days' absence he escapes one night from
his raptor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in his struggles for fre'dmn dangling from his collar.
His familiar hark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
wbich bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to he "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—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-Jiearted
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 is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
The beautiful picture "Home Again" on heavy plate paper 22x29
inches all ready for framing will be mailed KRKI*. tn every subscriber of
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly Star fnr 1912.
The small sum of 11.50 will secure the two papers tor a full year including a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which alone is
easily worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not be bought at that price.
Every home in the Boundary should get the big 11,50 worth tbis

There Is a bouse still standing lo
Bomb Carolina, one of those old fash

than ISO years old. The woodwork
above Its cornices, Its massive chimneys. Its Duted pillars extending from
the porch to the root, smack ot aristocratic persons who dwelt there when
tbe place was new. but who dwell
tbere no longer.
When the Revolution came on Charles
Ilugold, tben lord of tbe manor, remained loytl to tbe king, but bis children, all ot wbom were grown, chose
tbe patriot side. Bis two sous were

Eos." His only daughter, Margaret.
remained at borne wltb ber father,
though her heart wu with ber brothers iu tbe continental service.
One evening during tbat troublous
period Margaret) looking out ot a win-
slow, saw a man In a scarlet coat riding toward the house. Going out on to
the porch, sbe stood tbere between two
1 tbe greoi white pillars waiting for
Wm. When be drew rein before her
■nd doffed bis hat politely she saw
that be was wbat a woman would
naturally admire, a gentleman, a soldier and handsome. Be came of the
Mme aristocratic English stock from
.which she herself had sprung.
"May 1 ask," be said, "are you loyal

"And youT'
"It doesn't matter wbere my sympathy lies, for.l am a woman, but were
1 a man I would now be fighting for
tbe patriot cause."
"May I see your father!"
The officer dismounted. Tbe girl call
ed a negro servant to hold his horse,
then showed the man Into the library,
where her father was reading, and
left tbe two together. Captain Ar-
tackle, one ot Colonel Tarleton's oncers, bsd been sent out by bis chief
te make Inquiries among such Tories
as he could And In the neighborhood
■s to where the "Swamp Pox" was
lurking. Be asked Mr. Rlngold for
Information, bnt the latter frankly
told blm tbat though be was loyal to
tbe British cause be bad two sons tn
Marlon's corps and begged to be excused from replying to bis questions.
But since darkness was coming on be
•ffered tbe captain entertainment for
tbe nlgbt
Arbuckle accepted tho Invitation, not
fcr tbe entertainment, but that he
might pass an evening ln company
with Margaret, whose stately figure,
comely face and aristocratic bearing
had made a profound Impression upon
llm. Women to young English bloods
•f tbat day were considered legitimate
game, and Arbuckle vowed witbin blm
■elf that before be parted with tbe
(Irl for tbe night be would take at'
least ono kiss.
■■ Be kept bis resolution, though he no
more than kept It, for be got but one
kiss. Be left a crimson spot wbere
his lips touched Margaret's cheek
•nd Sre In ber eye. Rising, sbe swept
•ut of tbe room, leaving blm dlscom-

wild country, so far from old England.
Be was ln doubt whether to regret
his act or to muko an excuse to remain, wltb a view to a further effort
But for tbo present there was nothing to do but go to bed.
ln tbo morning be breakfasted wltb
Mr. Rlngold, and wben the meal was
knlsbcd, feeling obliged to return to
slaty, be ordered his horse. Tbe negro
.wbo brought lt banded btm a note
from Margaret, in wblcb she told him
that ■ champion demanded satisfaction
lor tho Insult ba bad offered ber tbe
•venlng before. Captain Arbuckle was
astonished. Be bad played tbe same
game many a time at borne, with no
•erlous consequences, to meet wltb a
.challenge to mortal combat on a like
provocation lu the wilds of America.
But for ono tblng the officer would
have offered a humble apology. That
Was tho champion. A spirit of rivalry
took possession of blm. Who was this
man who was to stand In defense of
tbe woman wbo had bo Impressed
him! Was he a lover, a brother or a
friend! In any event, could he, an
Englishman-ilia) proudest race on
earth-apologize for taking a liberty
Wltb one born lu a land recently ac-
tnfred from savages?
"Tell your mistress," ho said to the
segro, "that I will communicate with
her nn soon as my duties as a soldier
.Will permit."
On bis return to cauio   Arbuckle
round tnat ttie command tiaa got wino
of tne "Swamp Pox" tnd had gone ln
chase of him Tarleton bad left an order for the captain to remain In tbe
eamp In command of a small guard
left there till tbe expedition returned.
This left him an opportunity to take
care of tbe matter he bad In band. Be
wrote Margaret tbnt since he had
learned that she had a champion tbe
light must come oil before any apology
could be made. Be was Impatient to
throw himself at her feet to Implore
ber pardon; therefore he desired the
affair sbould be settled as soon as pos
Bible. Besides, be was now free from
uy duty tbat would Interfere wltb Its
settlement Would sbe ask ber champion to name an early date, place,

A reply came that sue felt a delicacy

stipulated tbat be should Ugbt masked.
The time would bo that evening at sun-
sct, ln a clearing back of ber father's

Ber slave, Jim, who bore ber messages,

To the masking Arbuckle declined to
assent unions assured tbat ber champion was not a- oioua raisins, _s=s
when thus assured be agreed to be on
band at tbe appointed bour.
He found bis enemy waiting for him.
The man was tall nnd slender, being
dressed In citizen's costume of tbe day,
a broad tailed cutaway coat and
breeches, buff waistcoat, wblte stockings, lurge shoe buckles and a powdered peruke. Bis mask was of black
velvet, wltb lace at and below bis
Jim, the colored slave, stood near
wltb a saber under an arm and a
small box containing articles to stop
the Sow of blood In the other. He
banded Arbuckle a saber, and tbe latter advanced to tbe spot where bis
enemy was standing. But beforo putting himself In a posture for defense
he said to Jim:
"In caso I am denied an opportunity
to crave your mistress' pardon by being killed bi this fight 1 desire you to
assure her that bud I livjed I would
bave done so.
"I'll do dat, sab," said Jim, "fo* I
reckon yo' gwlne fo' to get killed. De

A suppressed exclamation of dissatisfaction from the champion stopped
this attempt to frighten the captain,
aud tbe principals In tbe affair, advancing toward eacb other, began to
fence. Notwithstanding Jim's encomiums the unknown at once proved
himself no match for bis opponent.
Arbuckle, perceiving this, stood strictly on tbe defensive, not desiring that
blood sbould be spilled In sucb a
He was beginning to be amused at
the bungling thrusts and parries made
by bis opponent wben an accident happened at an unlucky moment. Just
us the masked man was making ons
of his awkward thrusts Arbuckle's
foot caught ln a creeptng vine, and he
fell forward on tbe point of bis adversary's sword, which, entering his right
side Just below tbe arm pit, Inflicted
a flesh wound.
A cry came from the champion. Not
a masculine cry; lt was like a woman's
shriek. Throwing away his saber, be
stooped and lifted bis enemy ln his
arms. Arbuckle, more interested In
the champion's Identity than bis
wound, pulled off tbe mask and exposed tbe features ot Margaret Rlngold.
Tbe two looked at eacb otber for a
few moments without speaking; then
Arbuckle, seizing Margaret's hand,
kissed It respectfully, exclaiming:
"Forgive mo!"
Meanwhile Jim was hurrying forward, opening the box of materials tor
stanching blood. Arbuckle assured
Margaret that his wound was of po
importance, threw off his coat opened
bis waistcoat and exposed his shirt
saturated wltb blood. Margaret tremblingly applied Uut and wound a band-
ago to bold lt In Its place. Tkon she
told Jim to go for assistance and bring
a conveyauce to take tho wounded mun
to tbe bouse. But Arbuckle demurred.
"The affair must be kept secret," he
said, "because I am ashamed of my
part In requiting a woman to protect
herself ngalnst me, and, as for being
carried about witb such n pin prick as
this, my comrades would despise mo.

Margaret turned and walked away,
but i'-lio beard footsteps behind Iter uud

"Tell me before we part," be snid,
"am 1 forgiven?"
Bhe made no reply except with her
eyes, but the man was satisfied. Ue

The "Swamp Fox" kept Tarleton nnd
his men busy for some time, during

Margaret that as soon as he had recovered be wonld see ber and make
all possible amends for bis treatment
