It is our misfortune, that a constituency .so vast in extent and so varied  in interests as Yale-Cariboo���������which  .includes not only Vale and Cariboo but  ., also Li lionet and all Kootenay���������should  have, but one ' representative in the  Commons, but as redistribution will  not take pla,-:e un'il after-next  year's census, it   will   be the  dutyr, of  ' the successful candidate, at the approach in it federal election" to essay  that almost impossible task*.    For four  years Mr. Bostock has filled that oner-  '' '  ous position and even his severest  critics will not refuse to accord him  praise for his efforts in behalf of his  constituents. Mr. Unstuck lias said  that he, will decline ro-nomination,  though his numberless faiends would  ,, liava it otherwise. (Should he adhere  to his determination it will become  necessary for the' Liberals, to unite upon another candidate. The magnitude  of the task of even canvassing the rid  ing   would   be  eno,ugh   to  appal most  " '��������� **  men and it will' be diflicult to find one  who will give as much time and attention to our needs as  does the present  'representative!  The, woik  of   choosing'a candidate  will devolve upon the Liberal  Convention to be held here on September Oth,  which gives  every promise of being a  most   successful     gathering. _    Every  section of  this great constituency will  be   represented    therein   and   judging  fiom the inieresit being displayed and  those who are coming  as delegate.:' we  may rely   upon   it that  the  best man  wiil   be chosen, for  tho vai ions delegations are made up of the most promin-  . cut men in   their respejtive localities :  men who are more  anxious lo foi ward  , Wk regret, to learn of T. E. L. Taylor's resignation from the lieutenancy  of No. 5 Company, R.

There had been a time when Jack's  evenings were not'spent in an-aimless  endeavor to make, the hours fly faster,  but that time vv.is i),ist. ,.  ' The orchestra -was crashing out the  music of a comic opera as he stepped  from the elevator, and ho leisurely  scanned "tlie crowd that, sat in groups  around small tables sipping iced  drinks,  All day the heat had been terrific,  and even now, although a breeze 'stirred the foliage of the potted plants, ft  humid haze still lingered in tlie air and  mellowed the rays of the colored lamps  that only partly dispelled the darknesu.  Their light was suuMcient to catch the  glitter in the jewels' of the women  nearest them, but .there were nooks  -where the friendly darkness'shielded  the faces of lovers and encouraged louder confidences.  ���������  As Jack passed a-number of those  couples'on his way to a-seat,"he turned  his .eyes impatiently toward the center  of the inclosuro where that part'of the  audience bad congregated which had  come to find amusement and forget the  heat,   c      -'. ���������-  The'retue murmur, of voiep.s p-ipgljng  with tho music was continuous, and  the. deep,.tones of, prosperous looking  '.'busine'ssvn-ien' blended wi'th the low  laughter of women who, despite the  heat, looked cool and fresh In tllPh  filmy gowns.  Jack nodded to one or two people as ���������  he dropped into a -sent. A waiter came  for his order, and after ho had given It  Jack lighted a cigar and, leaning back,  proceeded to take,note of the groups at  tho tables ucarest'hiin. It was one of '  his ways' of obtaining diversion, this  studying of the people about.him. lie  liked to watch the play of expression  ou the various faces and to speculate  about them.   ���������'���������.'��������� c  He did pot, however, enjoy watching  lovers. Jack had a line contempt for  sentiment. His ono love nffajr ha(]  been full of it, and it had ended badly.  Hut that.he had quite outlived bis love  and even his slight fooling of bitterness  inward the woman who had been able  lo cause him, so much paiu Jack often  assured himself.  Thoughts of Edith brought no accompanying heartache, and his feelings for  her now resembled thp'calm regard wo'  entertain toward friends of formei'  days from whom wo have parted. But  the affair had left him with a'cynical  dislike of anything that bordered ou  sentiment.  It amused him to think how rich In  the thing he now despised the days of  , his courtship and short- engagement  hfid been. Edith, has told him once,  with a pretty flusli ou her cheeks and a  liirhf in her eyes, that the sight of vlo-  I':ih always would'recall to her'mind  the time when he had asked her to he  his wife.  She find worn those flowers that  evening���������a monstrous .bunch of lliein  flint lie had sent her���������and Jack remembered how (heir perfume had filled tlie  tiny drawing room and In some Indefinable wny had seemed to blend willi  ihe soft light of (he shaded lamps.  It was pretty, ihut love affair nf  their.'-, but, after all. il hud been only  atf episode. He was glad that they had  discovered their mistake'in time, and  he was nble to look back upon that  portion of his life much as wc remember a dainty play that lifts 'us for a  time above the sordid cares of the  workaday world.  In the time he had known IfcT Edith  had roused him from his Indifferent attitude toward life. He always must  feel grateful to her for that. Jack told  himself, but the sight of violets  brought hlni.no i-"grcis.
