Two Lines Will be  Operated to  Otter  Summit���������Trains Will Run1 Be-  ���������  fore End of Year.  .Two important communications  were received by the boanl' of trade  from the department of railways at  Ottawa, referring to applications  made by the Kettle Valley Railway  company for approval of route maps  of its line ft mil near Summer-- Creek  to Otter creek summit via. the town  of Princeton, and.a branch line to  Copper mountain from near Princeton. 'A blue print showing the proposed line of construction from Five-  Mile to Otter- summit accompanies the  letter and disposes of the theory that  the Kettle Valley railway would run  over the Great Northern tracks to  Coqti.-thalla summit. It.is now quite  certain that two separate lines of railway will operate. .  . Many railway men are arriving in  Princeton, which is the headquarters  for the district. Wages for laboiers  on the Kettle Valley railway construction have been fixed, at $2.25 per  day, board at 90 cents per day and  doctor's fees at $1 per month. At  these figures large numbers of unskilled laborers are applying for  work.  Crooks <fc Co. are installing a 3S-ton  steam shovel on their contract at Gibson's ranch. They will soon' have a  night shift working and are at present  employing about 100 men.  , Glavin,-YungblntH & Co. are working a 70-ton steam shovel and have  about 150 men employed near the loop  between Summers creek and Five-  Mile.  ��������� Railway construction from both  ends of the Kettle Valley raihvay will  be pushed to completion this fall and  trains will be running into Vancouver  via .Merritt, the Nicola valley and  Spences Bridge before the first of the  -year. - Ihe firsUcla'ss.f:u-o from Men::" tt  to Vancouver is $8.75. There is already about 40 miles of steel laid up  the Coldwater river from Merritt to  the summit.  Thegrading from Five-Mile creek  into Princeton is liable to open up  some good copper showings, as the  line goes through a good group of  copper claims, before entering the  Similkameen or Princeton coal basin,  as the rim of this basin to the north  and south is uplifted by the cuperifer-  ous deposits of the: Similkameen.  E. S. Silcox, land surveyor, came in  from Vancouver last Friday and has  joined Frank-Bailey, M. E. Mr. Silcox is greatly impressed with the  Similkameen district and hopes to locate here permanently, as the Similka-  meen's mineral resourses are unrivalled in the providence of British Columbia. He has recently come from some  of the copper camps in the north.

The safe door-was blown clear across  the room, knocking down a stove and  leaving the room in confusion,  There appears to be no clue,* although it is thought that the culpits  may .be following in the wake ;'of a  circus troupe which left town ; this.  morning.(, v  The safe in Abbot's laundry" was  also blown open, but the loss .there  was small. ���������;  STORM AIDED BANDITS      ;        '  The robbery was committed ...under  cover of a" heavy rainstoim, which  swept the city during the early, hours  of the morning. Two distinct explosions awakened several residents.from  slumber about 1.30 a. in. Nitroglycerine was apparently the explosive.'uscd  in both robberies.  In the ease of the post office; the  entrance was totally wrecked. " The  front of.the.safe was blown to atoms,  quantities of small silver scattered in  all directions and left by'the burglars  in their haste to make a getawayJ  The fact that the.registered package  to the Canadian.Bank of Commerce  was in the haul appears to the authorities to bear more than a coincidence,  as these are received, here onlyjabout  ones a month,and remains in tlie post  office one,night only.  IS OPTIMISTIC  Sir  Thomas Shaughnessy Sees Nothing  Unsound in State of the Country  Penticton, May 16th���������Information  given to the police last night by the  driver of Mr. W. E. Welby's' Auto  Stage, concerning the identity of two  passengers--biirtied.tQ..J**;ei'eiiiepruO������u,ly  yesterday morning, may prove of the  utmost value in apprehending the  men who cracked the post office safej  securing nearly $6,000.  The men .in,question were roughly  dressed, and one of them carried a  gunny sack, which the driver of the  stage believes contained some of the  loot.  Montreal, May 16th���������"I return more  optimistically inclined that when I  started out," said Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, back from the west.  He saw signs of the general stringency. He noticed that there had. yet  to come unmistakable signs of recovery. -Improvement, indeed, was beginning to^ manifest itself, but it was  not' marked, nor would it be so for  some little time.  "I could see the state of things as  far as our own business is concerned,  in the trains, in the hotels, in the  freight shrinkage, which found little,  comparatively, to move.. People are  on an even Keel, they are marking  time. 1 do not look for any great  recovery until the fall when, if we  have a good crop (and all the signs  point that way), there will be a recovery, and that of a wholesome and  rational nature.  "On the other hand there is nothing in this country fundamentally  unsound from the business point of  view. If I thought differently, I  would, with the evidence of stringency, begin to feel a little anxious.  That is not the case absolutely. The  country is sound. No vital interest  has been irretrievably hurt. As far  as we are concerned our position is  strong. There has.been a shrinkage,  but when we consider our returns  upon the stock, when we consider,  above all,' that the hnsiness of the  country, in its large aspects, is sound,  and that we share in it, there is not  cause for anxiety.  "The stock has its intrinsic value,  apart from any speculative interest,  bound up with it and which may  cause fluctuations.  "And then too, we have other-  large assets, not directly associated  w.ith the business, strictly. '. Of  course, they may be 'affected by the  fluctuations'of economic law, but they  have their inherent value."  MINING  PROSPECTS  BRIGHT  Summary   of   Mining   in   the Province  Shows That This Industry Was   '  Never on Better Basis  An encotu-.iging feature of the outlook for mining in British Columbia  is the number of representatives of  British capital now visiting Vancouver to investigate prospects of profitable investment. One financial man  hit the nail on the head when he said  the British investor must give up the  idea of being able to purchase ready-  made mines in -this province and  must recognize the opportunities af-  foided by promising but undevolop-  ed prospects, where he can take his  chance along with the prospector.  This is the light sentiment, and with  caiefully selected ptospects there is  no reason why an inves-tor working  along that line should not sectue  more profitable lesults on the average  of his undertakings than if he stuck  to the old and ultra-conservative idea  of investing only in properties which  are developed to the "sure thing"  stage.

Mrs;|McKen**ie and MissjHattie Innis  of Keremeos are visiting at Mrs.  Crooker.  Malcolm C. McCauley of Kelowna,  paid Keremeos and vicinity a visit  during the week combining business  with pleasure. Mac has had a good  deal of work done on his ranch during  the last two years. It is now surveyed and application made for certificate  of improvements.  Mr. McCauley has suffered a good  of deal annoyance and loss of both time  and money during the last twelve  months, on account of being charged  with the very serious matter of  stealing a two 'year old steer from this  vicinity. We believe this case should  not have gone any further than the  preliminary at Keremeos and now it  has ended in being dismissed. Mac's  many friends in the valley are glad  to know that ho did not steal that  steer.  AV J. Manery makes weekly trips  to Keremeos with his splendid import-  French Coach Horse.

No  Less Than Three  Miireer Charges  Will Be Presented to Grand Jury at  Assizes Which Commenced Yesterday  Many important-criminal cases will  be tried at the Kamloops Spring criminal assize which will commence on May  20th. Yesterdayjyir.F. G. T. Lucas  recived advicesfroin the Attorney-General informing him that he would be  briefed to prosecute for the Crown.  There are    three   murder   charges  down oh the Kamloops assize docket.-  The first is that of Rex.  vs.  MacDer-  mott.    A. J.  MacDermott i������ charged  with killing Charles  Atcheson,  a C.  P. R.   .fireman.    On   November 2nd.  1912, Atcheson and two other C. P. R.  employees were   walking along    the  tracks to the  roundhouse  when  they  were  set upon by three armed  men  There were shots fired, and  Atcheson  fell dead.    MaoDermoDt  is  alleged   to  have been the guilty party.    His case  was traversed from the last assize.  Serro Coval is also charged with  murder. He is alleged to have slain  Andrew Charnot at Camp Four on the  Canadian Northern Pacific Railway  construction line. The camp was situated about 12 miles north of Thompson  crossing. The allegation is that Coval  shot Charnot with a .22 calibre rifle  on January 7th. of this year. There is  said to have been a feud between the  men.  An Indian named Johnny Lullipie  also faces a murder charge. He is alleged to have cut the throat of Mary  Springs at the Quilasasket Indian Reservation on April 25th last.  Vito Morea-faces a charge of attempted murder. He is alleged to have shot  at Mary Bulka in Kumloops City on  February 16th.  A case in which the whole countryside is greatly interested is that of  Rex. vs. Moses. Jimmy* Moses ^is  charged with cattle lifting in and a-  round Merritt, and many ranchers are  expected to be present at his trial.  There are also a number of cases  where stealing of various kinds is alleged.  The assizes will, it is estimated, last  about ten days. The presiding justice  will be appointed in the next few days.  DIVIDENDS Of THE   MINES  The regular dividend distributions  speak' more forcibly than anything  .else of the financial success intending mining in British Columbia. - The  Standard Silver Lead Mining Company has ��������� just announced an extra  dividend of 2i percent, making the  total distiibution for the month $100,-  000 or 5 percent on the capital stock  fortius month alone.. This company  hits he-en steadily distributing 2 A  per cent:per month,, or at the rate of  30 per cent on its capital stock.  The dividends for  the first quarter  of   the   year   amounted   to   586,088.  Granby .announces  another dividend  at the rate of 6  per  cent,   absorbing  $225,000.    With  the Standard Silver-  Lead dividends to date  these, amounts  'make", up dividend    payments  to  the  amount of $061,088. forv.the .fiistfive  nionths of the year.   'This it must be-  admitted, is a splendid showing.    Hediey Gold   will  keep, up its  quarterly  dividends, and these, with the annual  bonus gwill    make a   distribution   of  30 per cent on   the  capital  stock  of  the company.    Consolidating  Mining  [& Smelting  will distribute  its   usual  dividends at  the  rate  of 8  per  cent,  absorbing  $110,0SS per quarter.    Slo-  can Star  will  probably  be  added  to-  the  dividend   list   during  the   year.  With the added profits   not distributed in dividends,    but  applied  to  improvements it lieu  of capital, it is not  -too'much to say that the mines of the  province are  earning   profits   of $5,-  000,000 a- year, It  might well   be said  of British Columbia   as has been said  of Ontario,  that   "As  an    anchor  to  windward against financial storms the  mines of the. province   have:.-been'-'a  pronounced success."  GRANP.Y CONSOLIDATED  MINING, SMELTING, AN'D  rOAVKK  COMPANA'  Some curiosity has been aroused by  the announcement of an  extraordinary meeting of shareholders  in   this  company at New York on May 13th to  authorize  a   loan  of   $3,000,000,   and  the question   has    been  asked   as  to  what the   company   proposes    to do  with  the money,  since it has  already  authority to issue debentures  to the  extent of $5,000,000?    Tt appears   the  new loan is not in  addition   to the debenture    issue     authorized,     and   of  which $2,000,000 has been  subscribed,  but its the present is not considered a  propitious  time to  place  the balance  of the 6 percent,  debentures  on   the  market it is considered   preferable to  authorize the directors to provide the  funds  required by a short  term loan,  which can be obtained  at 4 per cent.  and at the due date of which  it is  hoped market conditions may be more  favorable  to  placing the   balance of  the debenture issue.  The new 6melter at Granby Bay is  producing about 40 lbs. of copper to  the ton of ore smelted, and the full  battery of three furnaces are in blast  this week. It will take a little time  to get the plant running smoothly,  and when that is accomplished, although the smelter is rated at a. capacity of 2000 tons per day, it is believed  it will handle 300 to 400 tons more.

West of Manitoba  the chief competitor was the United  States, but Ontario is a strong iiv,-il in  the Winnipeg market." Calgary alone  received by express  over 21,000 eases  of self-centred families.    It should be  an organization  of citizens  living together having common   interests and  purposes,   as   well   as   individual concerns.    Self  inlei est alone would suggest   reciprocity  and   mutual helpfulness, and  community   sympathy.    In  one way or another the   families in a  city     maintain     each     other.        The  traders live  by  the  patronage of the  consumers. " The   consumers   collect  wages, salaries, profits, fees, and other  incomes from manufacturers, builders,  traders, transportation   agencies, and  other activities.     The   manufacturer  sells  to   the trader  anil   through  him  to the workers and other householdeis.  The city  dweller  buys the produce of  the  farm,  dairy,   orchard,  saw   mill,  cannery.      These   producers   take   in  exchange the produce   of the   labor in  the. town.   AVitliout.sttc.il co-operation  among    citizens,   and     between    the  urban and   mral  districts;   the   whole  community    would      go     to     pieces.  When citizens are asked  to give, the  preference to producers   in  theii own  town they aieonly invited to give it to  themselves.    The. goods so  purchased  represent   the labor of other  citizens,  and  enable the  community  to stand  together.      No  one   would bo  so   un-  lcasonable. as to   propose the  boycotting of goods manufactured in Eastern  Uanada.    Tt would  not  be  suggested  that families should buy local goods  that   they   do  not   like,   rather  than  other commodities  that  please them.  There will  always be  a large   market  here   for   outside   goods.      But it is  good  business   for the purchaser   to  take   a little   trouble   to   obtain   the  product of a local  industry   when he  can do so   without loss.    In   the case  of standard articles in   which there is  mi difference in quality,   the  average,  customer is apt to take   the one which  first   meets  his  eye,   or   that   which  of British Columbia fruits and berries,   Uu, |lml|ii. ^.^   wh(j���������   hu  mi���������hL- as  exclusive of apples. The fruit consumption in the districts supplied  from nine cities in the prairie provinces is 'estimated, at 2016 carloads of  " apples;"fSrTof pTiiche's���������37*df apricots,  238 of prunes, 7S of crabs* 178 of "pears,  131 of plums and 180 of berries..  So reports  Mr.   J.   Forsyth  Smith,  markets commissioner  of British Columbia,   whose  pauiplet of  thirty-one  pages is closely pad ed with condensed  practical information,  which must be  of great value  to the fruit growers of  this  province.     It is the  business of  Mr. Smith to  travel,  investigate, discover, report and advise.    He does not  meddle at all with the actual business.  The   report  before  us deals with the  prairie  market for  British   Columbia  fruit.       The   commissioner   strongly  consels the producers   to arrange  for  shipment of strawberries   in  carload  lots, pointing out that the Americans,  following  this method,  sent  140 carloads to the  prairies last season.    He  points out that one American district  (Puyailup) shipped  last year  to home  and foreign   markets 369 cars  of fresh  raspberries   and   was   the chief competitor  of this  province  east  of   the  Rockies.    Mr. Smith  makes the interesting suggestion that fruit growers in  this     province    negotiate   with    the  Grain Growers'   Grain Company as to  the disposal, both of berries and larger  fruits   to   the   farmers   of   the  three  wheat    provinces.        He   says     that  there are 50,000 organized farmers and  that    they   have    co-operation   companies   capable   of    distributing    and  handling all kinds of orchard produce.  His statistics of fruit  handled ^at various centres, tables of freight and express rates,   from  [British   Columbia,  Ontario, and United .States producing  points, are only a small part of the detailed information supplied.  well take the one produced by the  labor of his own neighbor, the manufacture of which helps to build up and  maintain .the. tow.n. .{.For,...want; of  thoughtjin ���������purchasers";the  industries  of this neighborhood lose much business which they have the right to expect, and hundreds of local men aie  deprived of work which should be calling for them. For the same reason  thousands of dollars from this and  other small towns whicli ought to be  distributed among British Columbia  farmers will go this year to the United  States while the towns are losing the  trade'of farmers who ought to be sending this money back to the town, to  pay for their own supplies.  MINING PROSPECTS BRIGHT  HOME PATRONAGE FOR  HOME INDUSTRIES  Developement and promotion of  local loyalty is consistent with broad  and general patriotism. Community  consciousness and spirit is necessary  to any well organized city or town.

The Zinc Problem.  The latest developement of the zinc  problem is the proposal  of the Nelson  Board of Trade to have the inventor of  the .Johnston process move his experimental   plant   to   British   Columbia.  Mr.  Johnston,  accompanied   by  Drs.  Struthers     and    Barlow,    prominent  eastern engineers, have, visited Nelson  to look   into the   advantages   oifered  then-and to investigate  the suiiabil-  ty of the Slocan ores  to treatment by  the  process.   The  Dominion Government   have   suspended    work   at the  Canadian Zinc Company's   smelter at  Nelson on the advice of Walter R. In  alls,   their    consulting   engineer,    he  having advised  Dr.   Haanel,  director  of .mines, that the Johnston process is  ahead of anything the  Dominion experimental plant has achieved.  Fka.ser Valley Banket Gold Deposits.  Several claims have been filed on the  cretaceous    conglomerates     on     the  Fraser River, near Hope, in the belief  that   these are auriferous,   and steps  will  be taken   to   ascertain   whether  values  may be  obtyiined sufficient to  make the  milling of them  profitable.  Many years ago Dr. Dawson drew attention to the desirability of prospecting   these   conglomerates,   which   he  suggested    might have  been  formed  from former placer   gravels,   and he  stated   the best placer gold found in  the Fraser River  was   where   it   cut  through these deposits.    Certainly the  problem is well worth investigation,  the results of which may .have an im-1 ENCOURAGE   HOME   INDUSTRY  portant bearing on future  mining operations there.'''/ '  Mining in the Lahdeau.  Good -news conies from Ferguson,  the oldest mining camp in the Lar-  deau, bul one which has been dead for  several years. An ore shoot of 4 ft. is  reported from the Ajax. The Silver  Cup is steadily shipping. Spokan e  capitalists have bonded the Parrsboro.  There are just as good prospects in  the Lai-dean as in any other partof  the providence and the wonder is that  more attention has not been paid to  the camp. On the mountains sloping  to Trout Lake theieare some magnificent prospects awaiting developement. They - are convient of access  and the. physical conditions are favorable.  Vancouvek Island Coal.  The coal mines on Vancouver Island  are now producing about 5,000 tons a  day, but the inaiket is disorganized  and can not absorb the output. The  Cumberland mines have been on short  time, but an improvement is reported  in the demand for Coinox coal. At  the Jinglepot Mine at Nninaino the  force has been reduced for want of  market. The VVestern Fuel Company  have about, half their former force at  work, and of the men now employed  70 (per cent are reported to be employees who were on the company's  payroll before the labia troubles.  Ore Shipment.--. "2_3  Up to the end of last month Trail  smelter had received for the current  year 10S,731 tons of ore, of which  82,037 tons were from Rossland mines.  The Silver King mine at Nelson is  making a good showing, production  having reached. 730 tons. The Silver-  King was one of the oiliest mines  operated in British Columbia,' producing ore to the value of about $6,000,000  and paid in dividends $187,500. Ttw.is  abandoned.as exhausted, and now we  find the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company taking hold of it, and  with their up-to-date mining methods  and engineering advice placing it  again in the rank of the third largest  shipper to Trail smelter.

The .annual report of the company just  to hand shows that it distributed in  dividends for the :year $1,650,000, and  had a balance in hand of $2,126,763, so  that it is financially in an exceptionally strong position. Tho report of the  president stated the company had examined about 150 properties and had  found one which seemed likely to  meet their requirements, this remark  no doubt referring to the Surf Inlet  Mine, on which the company has now  started development and shipped in a  compressor, drills, steam power and  electric lighting plant.  B. C. Copper Compaxa-.  New York advices state the merger  into the Canada Copper Company is  now assured, 75 per cent, of the British Columbia Copper stock having  been exchanged for Canada' Copper  shares. Encouraging reports continue  to be received concerning the company's developement on Copper-  Mountain, the ore reserves being  rapidly increased, while experiments  with the oil flotation process indicate  that ore carrying as low as 1 per cent,  copper can be profitably treated.  The concentrates from the mine will  afford an important new source of ore  supplies for the coinpany's'.'.sinelter at  G i ecu wood.  1836  THE BANK OF  1914  78 Years in-Business.

Hallett raised himself lazily in his  chair as the above conversation struck  his cars and, turning slowly, looked  across the nisle of tho parlor car.  ��������� At the open window- opposite a girl  was bending forward. The knot of  dark hair under her wide hat and tho  graceful shoulders in their silk shirt  waist suit were sufficiently attractive  to make him rise farther to see whom  slie thus urged to victory.  Scarcely had ho done so than he  sprang across ��������� the moving car and  waved his hand frantically to the  young man who stood, hat in hand,  seeing the girl off.  "Why, hello, Hall!" the latter shouted surprisedly. Then he ran beside the  train.  "Grace, allow ine to introduce my  chum, Hallett���������there behind you. Hallett���������Miss Kennard."  The two people thus hastily  thrust  into acquaintanceship looked at each  other for a moment in rather a constrained silence. Then the girl laughed.  "Why, you must be 'the'  Mr.  Hallett," she said frankly.  "Why that distinguishing 'the?' "  "Oh, hasn't any man who was once  stroke of the Harvard eight a claim to  distinction?"  "But that was in tho remote past,  quite three years ago. I presume I am  talking to 'the' Miss Kenuard?"  The girl looked at him sharply.  "Jack wrote me of his engagement  two weeks ago," he explained. "It is  beginning to dawn upon me that my  letter of congratulation was tame."  Her glance drooped. A demure  smile lifted the corner'* of her lip. It  might mean assent or denial. Hallett  glanced in quick uncertainty at her  left hand, but it was covered by a  tan colored traveling glove. Underneath, be supposed, blazed her engagement diamond. '  "I think," she said, looking up and  surprising his inspection of her, "that  my stay in New York is to be with a  friend of yours as well as mine���������Miss  Glerhart."  'Oh, Dorothy; yes, indeed," he said  heartily.  "We  nearly  fell  out for life  when  Yale  won,   she was  so  anxious  you  should come off victorious."  "And you were not?"  "Well, you see, I did not know you  then."  She gave him a shy glance.  "I wonder if she is a flirt."    Hallett speculated and almost felt sorry  for his friend in spite of the girl's unusual beauty.   Presently he rose.  "I am afraid I shall have to leave  you for a moment," he apologized.  "Jly fox terrier Clip is in the baggage ear, and I have to let him have  a sniff at me once iu awkile to keep  him from tearing things to pieces generally."  "Oh, let me go too!" The girl  jumped up.   "I love fox terriers."  Hallett's brow drew together slightly.  He had his own ideas about girls, and  this rather too free young woman did  not quite fit in with thc-m. Nevertheless ho helped her through the sway-  hig train.  She  went  into   ecstasies  over  Clip,  stroking his velvet brown head while  he frantically licked his master's hand.  "I think his collar is much too tight,"  Bhe said authoritatively.  Hallett smiled.  "1 took it in a notch on purpose to  prevent his pulling his head through,"  lie replied quietly.  She looked the dog over with the eye  of a connoisseur, and Hallett watched  her narrowly. By the time they left  tlie baggage car ho had about con-  irluded that Miss Kennard belonged to  (lint objectionable class of young woman why could tell the good poiuts of a  horse or dog, but was decidedly lacking  iii Ihe i-.iore tender and womanly quid-  ii'o.:  In their zigzag way through the day  eo:;cb she paused suddenly. The car  ���������vas crowded almost to the point of  sttff(H-.-.!"(iti. In one seat a frai-.ie looking woiu-.n with a boy of foiu- on her  lap sat wedged close to the --indow  by a ''tout man with a hiim'.'.;on-hicf  tiif-ki--, round his collar, who linncd  III ii i: -. :f vigorously with a large hat.  "rii;.,t woman will faint if she remains here." Grace Kennard said deckle. !y     "She is almost gone now."  "AVbat cm we do?" Hallett asked,  with a liu"e!i".'s look around them at  the ci-!-',:oJ seats.  "J wi'l rive her my place in tho par  lor car."  "You?" Ills sur '.-'o was hardly complimentary. .,  .  "Yes, I, Mr. Ha lie,*'." Her eyes challenged his for (in instant. "If you will  help the mother I will take the child,"  she added coldly.  "Then I insist, on your having my  chair," he temporized.  "And I will take-it���������for tho boy!  Don't you see that he is too heavy for  that delicate woman to hold? Oh,  what does it matter about me?" sho  went on impatiently. "I am strong.  Let me get them out- of this while the  mother is able to walk."  While the woman lay gasping her relief in a comfortable armchair and  purer air Grace Kennard retired to the  narrow seat at the rear of the car  usually used by the conductor when  sorting his tickets. Hallett went off  to arrange things with that worthy,  and, returning successful, stood beside  her.  "Do you know, I think I owe you  an apology?" he said slowly.  Her eyebrows and shoulders raised  themselves imperceptibly, as though  the subject was not worth pursuing.  'Terhaps you could find a seat In the  smoking car," sho suggested coldly.  "Does that mean that I am dismissed?"  "No."  He watched the softly flushed face.  How tender, how beautiful it had looked as' the older and weaker woman  leaned upon Miss Kennard's young  strength. Hallett looked away from".  ner quickly. Was-he forgetting his  friend, he who had always prided himself upon being the soul of honor?    .  Again .his glance traveled' to her  hands.  "Do you always wear gloves wheD  traveling?" he said abruptly.  "AYliat a question!"  "But do you?"  "Of course. Every well bred wcu;  on does."  "Would you think it very impertinent if I asked you to remove them?"  "Mr.   Hallett."   she   said    hurriedly,  "will you kindly bring me my travel  ing bag?    I   want  to get  some v'.ofi-  water for that'poor-woman. ''I'm' 'sur'"  her head aches." ..
