A story is told of a Vancouver

he questioned the colonial: "I suppose that in your country you have
no place like the abbey?" he suggested. "No," replied the other.
"Then what, may I ask, do you do

The Juvenile Bostonians
The cleverest youngsters before
tbe public today are the Juvenile
Bostonians, who will appear at the
Grand Forks opera house, Friday
evening, September 29, in Chat delightful musical affair, "The Koseof
Blandeeu," a story of romance and
adventure in song. The Juvenile
Bostonians hardly need an intrn-
tion, for they ure mining the best
known of the high-class attractions,
and besides they have the distinction of being the only juvenile or
ganization of the kind in this country. The company is composed of
young ladies of the sweet sixteen
age, the oldest being but eighteen.
Of couisb there are some men connected   with   it, but they   are   the
Birdnian Eugene B. Ely will fly
at the Spokane fair after all. Word
was received this week by Manager
Robert H Cosgrove that the Glen
Curtiss com puny, after deciding that
Ely could uot come west aud substituting Lincoln Beachy as the .Spokane flier, hud made arrangements

the Interstate fair aviation meet.
Ely is famous the world over for bis
spectacular flights lo and trom the
deck of the battleship Pennsylvania
in Francisco bay, und has been one
of the most prominent contenders at
the recent big meets in Chicago and
Boston. With him will come the
youngest of the Curtiss aviators,
Cromwell Dixon. Dixon, although
he is hut 19 years of age, is a holder
of a record for fancy maneuvers,
mude while he was trying for his
air pilot's license iu August, and hss
had wiali' experience as u navigator
of thc air in dinghies and balloons.
Ely and Dixon will arrive in Spokane a wa-ek before the fair, each
with two biplanes, and will make
trial flights over the Interstate fair
grounds lo test the course and their

"Well," Vera snid, loftily, "you
doi? t expect to find him in here, I
suppose? Of course, if your duties
ca-ry you so far as to ransack a
laly's room, I will not prevent you."
The absolute iciness of the whole
thing profoundly impressed the list-
. eners. Astute as they were, it. never
occurred to them that the girl was
actinic a part; furthermore, with their
intimate knowledge of Fenwick's past,
Ihey knew well enough that Vera had
no cause to shield the man of whom
they were in search.
"We will not trouble you," Egan
stammered. "It is a mere matter
of form, and it would be absurd to
suppose that our man is concealed in
your room. In all probability he
received news of our coming and got
away without warning hia companions.
It is just the sort of thing tha* U
man of hi* type would do. We have
the rest of the gang all safe, but we
shall certainly have to look elsewhere for their chief. Will you please
accept our apologies?"
Vera waved the men aside haughtily. She wias glad to turn her bajck
upon them, so that they could not
see the expression of her face. She
was trembling violently now, for her
courage hnd suddenly deserted her.
For some long time she Btood there
in the corridor, until, presently, she
heard the noise of wheels as two
vehicles drove away. Then, with a
great sigh of relief, she recognized
the fact that the detectives had left
the house. She opened the door of
her room and oalied aloud to Fenwick. She called aguin and again
without response.
"Oh, you cun come out," she said,
contemptuously. "There is no cause
to fear, for those men have gone."
A moment later the yellow, fear-
distorted face of Mark Fenwick peeped out into the corridor. He came
shambling along on tottering limbs,
and his great course mouth twitched
horribly. It seemed to Vera ns if she
were looking ut a mere truvesty of the
man who so short a time ago had
been so strong and masterful and
"They gnve me a rare fright," Fenwick Baid in A senile way. He seemed
to have aged twenty years in the last
few minutes. "That—that—was very
cool and courageous of you, my dear.
I couldn't have done' it nny better
myself. You dear, kind girl." He
advanced now and would hnve taken
Vera's hand in his, but she turned
Irom him with loathing. She was
wondering which she disliked most—
the cold, cruel, determined criminal,
or this miserable wreck of a man
glad to lean on anyone for support.
"Don't touch me," she said, with
a shudder. "Don't thank me for anything. I should have handed you over
to those men gladly. I was ready
and willing to do so only my brother
recalled to me the fact that the same
blood runs in the veins of both of us.
It was the remembrance of this thnt
made me lie just now, that caused me
to run the risk of a criminal charge
myself. For 1 understand that anybody who harbors a thief for whose
arrest a warrant has heen issued,
runs the risk of going to jail, And
to think thut Le Fenu should do a
thing of that kind for such n crenturc
as yourself—it is too amazing."
"I suppose it is, my dear," Fenwick snid in the same carneying
voice. "I never expected to lind myself shielded behind u woman. But
I have lost all my nerve lately, and
lhe more I drink lo drown my trou-
les, the worse I get. But you must
not think too badly of me, for I am
not so black as I nni pointed."
"Could you be any Mucker?" Vern
asked, "Could any human being have
descended lower thnn you hnve descended? I think not, You imagine
because 1 threw in my lot with you
three years ago that I knew nothing
of your crimes. As a inntter of fnct,
I knew everything. 1 knew how you
had shifted the responsibility of that
dastardly murder on to the shoulders
ol the mnn who is in love with my
sister Beth. It wus for her sake that
I pretended Ignorance, for her sake
that I cnnie with you to try to get
to the bottom of your designs, Whnt
I hnve endured in the time nobody
but myself cun know. But it hn« -ill
come out, now, nnd here I am today
trying to shield you from the very
vengennce thnt T hnve been plotting
fnr you all this time. Oh, don't say
anything: don't deny it; don't add
more useless lies to the catalogue of
your vices. Go now. Let us see the
last of you, nnd never intrude upon
us ngnin."
All this outburst of Indignation hnd
apparently been wasted on Fenwick,
for he did not appear to he ifttening
at all. He had enough troubles of
his own, and, despite the fnct that
his nerve hnd fulled him, it wns no
feeling of remorse thnt left him
stricken nnd trembling nnd broken
down hefore Vern's scornful eyes.
He could only whine nnd protest that
he wns absolutely helpless.
"But what cnn 1 do?" he murmured, with senile tenrs iu his eyes.   "I
nm not so young us I was; indeed,
I am much older than people take
me for. I have no money and no
friends, there is not a place I can go
to. Don't turn me out—let me stay
here, where I shall be safe."
"It is impossible," said Vera, coldly. "We have done enough, and
more than enough for you. Now,
come this way, and I will hand you
over to my brother and Mr. Evors.
They nre cleverer thnn I am, and
muy be nble to devise some means
fo- getting you out of the country.
Why don't you come?"
"I can't," Fenwick almost sobbed.
"There is something in my limbs that
renders them powerless. If you will
give me ybur arm, 1 daresay I shall
be uble to get us far ns the little
fhe touch of the men wus jpolu-
tion, but Veru bravely endured it.
She could hear the excited servants
talking in whispers downstairs, and
one of them might appear at any
moment. It would be far better for
the domestic stall to assume that the
culprit had vanished, otherwise their
gossip would assuredly. bring the detectives back again without delay.
Vera was glad enough when her task
was finished and the trembling form
of Mark Fenwick was lowered into a
seat. The cunning look was still in
his eyes; the born criminal would
never get rid of that expression,
though for the rest he was an object
now more of pity than fear.
"It is very good of you," he said,
"for if you do not let me stay here
I will be discovered."
"That is absolutely certain," Le
Fenu said, coldly. "Most assuredly
you can't remain here. You may remain for the night, nnd Mr. Evors
nnd myself will try and think of a
plan between us."
"And Zary," Fenwick whispered.
The mention of that dreaded name
set him trembling again. "Keep me
away from Zary. I am afraid of
a good many things, but the mere
mention of that man's name stops
my heart beating and suffocates me."
"You had better go away," Le
Fenu said to Vera, "and leave the
wretched creature to us. There will
be no trouble in hiding him here for
a bit. There nre two rooms here that
nobody knows anything about except
Evors and his father."
Vera was only too glad to get away
into the open nir, glad to feel that
at least this nerve-destroying mystery
wns coining to an end. She wanted
to see Venner, too, and tell him all
thnt had happened. In all probability he was waiting at the accustomed spot. With a light heart end n
feeling of youthfulness upon her thnt
she hnal not felt for some time, Vera
set out on her journey.
(To be continued.)
Tht Antique Collector end a Bargain
Jewel Casket.
The collector had been sneering al
Americans for their ignorance of antiques. We had been walking in
Venice, down a narrow ealle while he
wae speaking. "Look at tbat old brats
scale," he resumed, pointing to a fish
stall in the litUe outdoor market on
which we had just emerged. "There's
a gem, not very old, but of the finest
seventeenth century Venetian work.
If you saw that in a New York deal.
er's, all cleaned up, you'd give up a
good deal for it, but you'd 'a' passed
it by a dozen times if I hadn't spoken about it. See that old junk stand
over there? I never pats a thing like
that. You can never tell what yon
may pick up—if you only know."
We hod scarcely reached the stand
when the collector thrust out his hand
with the swiftness of a hawk darting
on ite prey and swooped upon a litUe
jewel box.
"Camelian! Russian, I should say.
from the Ural mountains. It's not ot
great value, but it's a pretty little
thing if it was cleaned ap. It's mine,
anyway.*' To the keeper of the stall:
The Venetian slowly uncoiled himself and come down from the ehureh
steps, where he had been sleeping.
"Does the signore want the pretty
trifle?' The signore knows its value
(tetter than I, and he'll be generous?"
"I'U give you a lira for it. It isn't
worth it, but one mustn't be hard
with the poor."   '
-I had hope I should get five!"
"Well, I'U make it two."
"It is the signore'a."
"There, you seel" exultingly ehuck.
led the collector. "That's what it is
to know. An exquisite oarnelian Rub.
siao Jewel oaaket for 40 cental You'd
never hsve thought of looking among
a lot of maty old lion for a thing
like that, would youl*"
While speaking he held the boa with
a miser's clutch.
"May I see it, please?"
He reluctantly handed it to me as
though fearing I might make a sudden dash down the oaUe with his
"Phew!" aaid I contemptuously,
handing the box baek to him. "It's
not carnelinn at all. It'a glass—noth-
ing but glass."
''Glass'" drawing a magnifier from
his waistcoat pocket and mutely examining the purohase. "I'm—I'm—
afraid- it is!" he said sheepishly.
"Of course it is."
"I—don't know,"-sadly. "Yea, it is

wall, wc all make mistakes at times.
Do you want it?" disgust taking the

King George's Little Joke.
King George hus nlways been fonrl
of a joke, and he found a rare opportunity for one once. His ship wa ■
lying off Portsmouth, and coalinv
had been taking place. In this >h»
prince, like everyone else ou board
had to tnke his shnre. When he hno
finished he looked a pretty picture
being coal-dust from the crown of hit
head tb the soles nf his boots. Om
of his mesa-mnt?s made the laughins
remark that his grandmother, then
staying at Osborne, would have some,
thing of a shock if she could see him
st the moment. "By Jove,"%snid his
royal highness, "what a lark! 1
hnve a ihmxS mi-d to let her see me."
His brother officers egged him on
and a bost was lowered away and
off went the prince, as black as a
nigger. By some means or other h_
managed to gain secess to the
grounds of Osborne, snd presently
the familiar donkey-chaise benrin-
the late Queen hove in sight. When
It got close to him he stepped from
where he hsd been concealed, and
approached her majesty, who gazed
at the weird apparition in amaze,
ment. Then she made a mnvemen*
as though to call one ot her at ten-
dents to throw him out of the place.
"Oh, all right. I will go if you like,"
said his royal highness in assumed
dudgeon, "but I must say that I don't
think it is a very kind way to greet
your loving grandson!" Even thn
grave old Queen was forced to break
into a smile as she recognized Unroyal sailor, hut. from all account'.,
he received rather a severe "dressing

Its Qrsst Monttsry Worth to the Com.
munlty Where It Is Locatsd
An interesting and accurate calculation has been made of what an industry employing 1,000 hands means
to a community:
It increases the population by 5,000
It adds $90,000 to the value of public utilities.
The assessment is increased by
It pays out annually in salaries and
wages $559,a900.
It represents through its buildings
and the houses of its employees an investment of $2,000,000.
The annual expenditure in food
would be $63,000 in meat, $9,600 in
potatoes, $5,000 in sugar, $18,250 in
milk, $66,700 in butter, and $117,600
in eggs.
Sumnieil up, this means that an industry employing 1,000 hands is worth
$2-21.600 a year to the farmers of the
The expenditure in clothing would
be $168,750.
With the annual payment of taxes
added to the total expenditure on
buildings, food and clothing, you have
in all $2,428,360 turned into the town
in one year through the coming of
one great industry. In conclusion,
one may again note the prodigious re-
suite which are effected by the presence in Canada of some 435,000 artisans. In round figures these men
would mean at least $1,056,322,250 to
the Dominion.
An industry employing 1,000 hands
may be regarded as a large one, but
the same percentage of results would
follow in larger or smaller plants, so
that one can easily begin to reckon for
himself what any particular industry would mean to a town or city.

informant. "For morning wear her
dresses are usually tight-sitting tailor-
made in styie, and the material is
generally tweed or cloth, in either case

"For instance, in the summer she
will wear crepe-de-Uhine, fine voile, or
a material composed of silk and cotton, with p'-rhnps a lace jacket ot
clinging design.
"by tne hoy, Her Majesty shows a
distinct partiality for embroidery, and
will often favor brocade worked in
graceful patterns.

even in full evening attire inclines
towards a simplicity which is utmost

few good diamonds or pearls, and a
touch of blue somewhere about the
dress. This may take the form of a
bow of ribbon, possibly a sash or insertion.

As every mother knows, the death
rate of litle ones in Canada during
the hot sumemr months far exceeds
that of any other season of the year.
Thi* reason for this is that the excessive heat brings on those dreaded
troubles, cholera infantum, diarrhoea, dysentery and otlier stomach
and bowel complaints. These come
on so quickly and with such little
warning that often baby is beyond
help before the mother realizes he is
ill. During the hot summer months

her guard to see that bnby's bowels
nre working regularly nnd his little
stomach is kept sweet and pure.

How Winchester Guns and Cartridges
Ara Ivl.adt
As the hunting season will soon be
here sportsmen generally are thinking of their hunting outfit. This
makes it more opportune to call attention to the repeating rifles, re-
peuting shotguns and ammunition oi
all kinds manufactured by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company—
the largest manufacturers of arms
and ammunition in the world—which
are justly celebrated for their superi-
oi ity and reliability. Over two million Winchester guns have been sold
during the forty odd years they have
been upon the mnjket, and toduy
they are in general use all over the
world. Having established such a
demand for their guns and ammunition the Winchester Company strive
to maintain tliem by exercising great
care in the selection of thc materials
used,' antl by employing modern methods and machinery in manufacturing their product. The Winchester
Company employ the leading experts
in gun and ammunition' making, and
expend annually a large amount of
money in experimental work and in
perfecting new and desirable types of
guns and ammunition. By means oi
this experimental work and by an ex-
actingssyatem of tests and inspections
embracing every stage of manufacture, from the materials in their
rough -state to the finished product,
the Winchester Company are enabled
to keep thoroughly modern in every
way and up to a high degree of per.
fection. As proof of the superiority
of Winchester cartridges might be
cited the report of the Board of Gov.
ernment Experts who, sfter a thorough test of various makes, reported
officially that .Winchester rifle cart-
ridges were superior to all others.
This is the second year that Winchester cartridges have been so honored. Notwithstanding their superiority and the care taken in manufacturing Winchester guns and ammunition, they cost the consumer no more
than inferior makes. Quality considered, Winchester goods are the
cheapest upon the market, Winchester goods are sold by most all
reputable, dealers in hardware and
sporting goods.
Good pasture is sweet and fragrant.
These qualities are deficient in dry
foods, and they are essential to ensure thorough assimilation and prevent waste of food. Food not fully
assimilated sooner or later impairs
the henlth. During about twenty-five
years Herbageum has, without failure,
efficiently and economically replaced
those essential qualities, and its regular use with all classes of animals is
advised. The cost per month ior each
horse, cow, beeve, -hog, or for about
twenty fowls is not over 15c, and for
sheep and calves not over 5c per
month each. It. is manufactured by
the Beaver Manufacturing Company,
Limited, of Gait, Ontario.
