WELL ANSWERED
He Proposed to Trade the
Philippines For Oanada.
SIR J. D. EDGAR'S PLAN
The Speaker of the House of Commons Proposes to Exohange Jamiioa For the
State of New Hampshire.
Toronto, Nov. 21.���Sir J. D. Edgar,
speaker of the Honse of Commons, hus
a lottor in tho Globe, in which he refers to the suggestion of United States
Senator Chandler in an article in
Greater America, n popular meclizine, in tbe courso of which he suggests that 'England should tako the
Philippines and give the United States
Canada, if the latter wants to come,
as she soon will.   Sir James says:
"I may be permitted to point out
another "deal" between England und
United Sates, whioh may be const)m
mated much more easily than tbe one
proposed by Senator Chandler. Eng
land just now has her own troubles
with Jamaica aud might, out ot
friendly disposition, be induced to exohange the island for a satisfactory
portion of tho United States. Jamaica
is in the West Indies, is very fertile
and has a population of 7C.000 souls.
The state of New Hampshire is contiguous to Canada and though possessed of many advantages and beauties,
its area is small and its population ia
only about one half of Jamaica's. Why
not, then, exchange New Hampshire
for Jamaica? On her admission to tho
Dominion, I think, I can promise tliat
New Hampshire would be given the
ful status of a province of Canada. I
feel satisfied the New Hampshire sen
ator will accept my suggestion ss full
of advantage to this country, and as a
distinct compliment to his own state.
It will be observed, I feel justified in
assuming, without argument the same
willingness of Now Hampshire to accept this arrangement that Senator
Ohandlor assumes on the part of Cantt
da as to his plan.
DOMINION BYE-ELECTIONS.
Ottawa, Nov. 31.���It is understood
that the writs for tho bye-elections are
being issued today and that the contest
will take plaoe in all of the constituencies on the same date, except in West
Huron.
j"In West Huron there is a provincial
eleotion going on and it is found  im
possible to hold nn  election   there  on
the same day bb the others.
STOKY OF THE GRAVES.
Bodies Removed Trom the Old   to the
New Cemetery.
The work of removing the bodies
from the old burial ground to the new
oemetery is now pructically over and
little remains to be done but to olear
off the objectionable old site. The
fenoing used has not been removed, the
intention being to burn it on the
ground with the fragments of coffins
and other debris now lying around.
About one of the last coffins removed
was that of Bart Henderson, who was
perhaps the first man buried in Nelson.
In 1888 tbis good old timer's remains
were buried in the lot npon which now
stands the C. P. R. land offioos. -Two
others were subsequently laid at rest
there, but about nine years ago the
coffins were removed to the graves
from whioh they were again taken a
few days ago and transferred to the
new cemetery. The grave of Jimmy
Quigg, an old paoker on the Cariboo
trail in early days, was among others
identified by Mr. Lemon, who superintended the removal of the bodies.
Paddy Woods, the blacksmith, who
was murdered a couple of years ago in
Nelson, and whose murderer was the
first man exeouted here, was among
the corpses taken to the new ground.
Gillis, a miner who was killed by a
snowslide at the Noble Five three
years ago, and Campbell, who was
drowned in  the  shaft  at  the
marked "unknown," there being no
record whatever kept of the interments. In the Odd Fellows' plot were
16 graves, the Free Masons claimed
six departed brethren, while the
Chinese bad 11 interred within tbe
plot allotted to them. One oorpse was
removed which was found to be clothed in a slicker or oil coat, while three
dead men were ducked in gum boots.
THE CARIBOO DISTRIOT.
W. J. Goepel, government auditor
returned from an offloial trip through
the distriot on Saturday. Mr. Goepel
left Nelson on Sept. ii, and during his
absence has been all through tbo Yale-
Cariboo seotion He reports that there
is as much activity in old Cariboo as
ever, and that the people are agitating
for railway accommodation with every
prospect of success. Placer mining is
being pursued all over with renewed
activity, and some 800 miles of the
Quesnelle river have been leased for
dredging operations. Tbe Cariboo
mine on the south fork has paid upwards of 1100.000 this yesr, and at present there are about BOU men employed
at. the works. The Golden River-
Qriesuelle company has put in nu immense dam, aud are sanguine oi rich
results. All through thu country, Mr.
Goepel says, prospects aro bright.
SUPREME OOURT.
The next silting ot the supreme
court will be held in Nolson on December 6, uud promises to be a very
busy session. The famous case of Bell
vs. Boos, which hus been before the
public for years past, comes up iu another form.
Bell vs. Hanaenr. All the litigation
has been over the recovery of certain
bonds, which appear to have changed
bauds more frequently than was desirable.
Clarke vs. Hay, Hay vs. Cummings,
and the Seattle Mining & Smelting
Co. vs. McCallum uro ull oases affecting the ownership of the Scuttle,
Butte, and Drummond mineral claims
in the Kettle River mining division.
Then there is an originating summons in the case of J. M. Burke &
Co., late bankers of Kaslo, who ask
for the discharge of J. L. Retallack as
trustee, and the appointment of another in his stead. These are the more
important cases listed up to date, but
as the registry is still open, and ns
there are the usual number of motions
tbe presiding judge is likely to have a
very busy time.

TRIED FOR FORGERY.
H. A. Parker was bofore Judge Forin
yesterday afternoon, having elected for
a spesdy trial. The charge against tho
prisoner is one of forgory. He issued
a cheque on the local branch of the
Bank of Montreal for $35 in favor of
one D. B. Thomas, and there were no
funds to meet it, nor were either
parties known at the bank. Parker
pleads in extenuation of the offence
that he was drunk at the time nnd did
not know what he was doing. His

���quirios as to the prisoners antecedents.

Made Him a Phasha.
Berlin, Nov. 21.���Emperor William
is expected to arrive here At the end of
che week. It is said that in conversation at Messina he spoke optimistically
of the situation. He requested that no
publio reception be given him on his
arrival on Austrian soil. He suggested
that Great Britain was seeking entrance to the Dreibund, but this is
wholly discredited. It is learned that
the municipality of Beyroot spent the
whole of the coming year's taxes iu
entertaining the emperor, making it
necessary to collect the taxes for 1000
immediately. When the Turkish fleet
was ordered to escort, the Hohenzollern,
the German imperial yacht, it was
found that the vessels wero without
co il. A loc.il mercht.nt was asked to

and conferred npon him the title of
Pasha.

spirit of imperialism and what is it,

load in imperialism,

China in the interests of the British
Associated Chambers of Commerce, in
the courso of a speeoh bere Saturday

AN UNLIKELY STORY.
McWherrell. (he Murderer, Said to Be
Heir to a Title and an  Estate.
Toronto, Nov. 21.���Tbe Mail and
Empire publishes a story to the effeot
that the man Walter McWherrell, nn
der sentence of life imprisonment for
the murder of an aged couple named
Williams, near Port Credit, five yean
ago, is the son of a Scotch gentleman
of high family and has beoome beir to
the title and estates of the Kinnark
family. A Scotch woman, who goes
by name Mrs. G. M. K. Truman, living in Hamilton, claims to be Mo
Wberrell's wife, and has been for some
time endeavoring to get the department of justice to pardon the convict.
She is the somewhat doubtful authority for tho Mail's story. JThe truth will
probably be found in the faot that Mc-
Wlr rreil is an illegitimate son of some
man of means in the old oountry, the
rest being no doubt a fable.

tomorrow night (Nov. 22) before the
Lennox Athletic olub, will certainly

the police authorities. Both pugilists
are in the beat possible sbape for the
encounter and while each seems confident of victory, Corbett is still the
favorite among the majority of sporting men. Both indulged in light work

keep their muscles and wind in good
order and each will rest from this afternoon until he is colled upon to enter
the ring, about ten o'clock tomorrow
night.

to bn reinatatnd as a member of the

punishment of snspensiou it was ultra
vires of the bonohorB to disbar. The
full court uphold the benchers and took
the view of Gordon Hnnter, who appeared for the law society, that Blake's
only remedy wns to apply to the benchers, to show the money accounted for
and nsk for reinstatement.

case as uu outiage and travesty on

being able to have a new trial.
MUNITIONS OF WAR.

Ottawa, Nov. 21.���At the rate tbat

soon bo possible to convert ocean liners
into armored cruisers and transports
equal to tho embarkation of 10,000 mem
simultaneously for any points in tho
far eustoru seas to which the ships
might bo ordered.
There is apparently no intention to
provide for the movement of troops to
any largo oxtent from Europe across
Canada by the "Imperial highway"
to Asia. On the contrary, every indication points to Esquimalt being utilized chiefly for fitting out cruisers
and transports on sudden emergency
aud Halifax as a supply depot for the

At the meeting of the city council
yesterday Alderman Tectzn! made au
important suggestion, supporting it by
TOBolution which, we are glad to see,
the council adopted. As Alderman
Teetzel pointed out the Dominion government will be formally asked shortly
to establish a mint in Canada, where
gold and silver coinage can bc struck,
and the request will likely be complied with. In view of this Aid. Teetzel's is tho first practical suggestion
that we have seen thut preparation
should be made to utilize the mint, by
establishing refineries wherein gold
and silver can be treated and prepared
for use in that institution. At tho
present time all the gold uud silver
matte, the rosult of such reduction
processes as the smelters hereabouts
oan apply, is shipped to Newark unci
Kansas city mainly, whero tlio refineries are, and the product is either
Bhipped back here or disposed of in the
United States. Should refineries bc
constructed in Nelson of sufficient capacity, all this work could bo done at
home and all railway freight rates,
oustoms duties, and other charges
would be saved, besides giving home
iudutries tbo benefit of the profits
which accrue, at the same time providing labor for a great many hands.
The motion which AJd. Teetzel put
before the council was to the effect
that the city open negotiations with
capitalists to secure the establishment
of refiniug works and in the debate
which followed it wus pointed out that
in order to secure such works it would
be wise to pay a bonus to those willing
to embark in tho undertaking. It is
hoped that Aid. Teetzel and the council will not let the mutter rest where
they left it yesterday, but will formulate a plan by which such works can
be secured. We ure sino that efforts in
this direction would receive the hearty
support of not only Nelson, but of the
surrounding district, to which refineries would prove most advantageous.

NELSON A RAILWAY CENTRE.
The opening of the Crow's Nest Pass
railway, which notable event will
probably mark the first week in December, will mean much to Nolson
and the Nelson district. In the *. first
place a day and a half, perhaps more,
will be saved iu the journoy to and
from Winnipeg, and in the socond
place, it is believed that, the company
will give local rates of travel from this
point and from point to point, to the
junction with the main line at Dun-
more. Thia is what will be asked for,
but whether the company will agree
remains to be seen. Certainly the company would be justified in giving a reduced fare as compared with the present rate around by Revelstoke, which
is much fhe longer journey. The
freight rate, too, rr.nBt fall lighter upon the merchants of Nelson, as goods
will come quickly from the east and
the cars will bo handled witb much
less cost than they now nre at Revelstoke, Arrowhead and RobBon. In a
year's time the linewill be built around
the end of thc hike and there will be
a continuous rail journey into Nelson.
The railway will not go .by the Salmon
to Trail. The country has been looked
over aud nothing less than a four per
cent grade oould be got. Tbe company
will not accept anything over one aud
a half per cent; therefore the line will
be built aa originally planned and will
come via Nelsou to Robson. The people
of Nelson would do well to cbnsider
what the company has at Robson and
ou the opposite Bide of the river and
to enquire what aie the company's
inteutious at that place. They may
have an important boariug ou tbe future of this city. Tbe Canadian Pacific railway owns tbe townsite at
R obson, and all will agree that it is a
fine townsite. The company also
owns the townsite on the optjosite Bide
of the Columbia river, aud will not
sell a foot of land iu either. Nelson
should ascertain, if possible, the company's designs ns to Robsou. If it
is intended to make that jlace the
inter-ter.'ninal of the Crow's Nest Pass
and the Robson-Peutiction railwnvs,
Nelson should see what can be done to
make this city tbe terminal   of  both.
It would be a great gain to tbe oity
to hnve such an arrangement and if
tbe city goes properly about it .we
have no doubt that the company conld
be jonvinced that it would be. advantageous for tbe road to join hands
with Nelsou iu this matter. And no
time should be lost in setting about it.

NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA.
While the greatest known wealth of
British Columbia lies south of tho
Canadian Pacific railway, in Southern
British Columbia, it is the opinion of
many, including at least ono eminent
export, who has put bis viows on re-
oord, that the oountry north of the
Canadian Pacific railway and west of
the Rocky mountains range, will
provo equally as rich, if not richer.
Tt has been pretty well established that
the placer area at Teslin lake is comparatively as valuable as the best
grouud of the Yukon. Comparatively
we say, because the new diggings nre
in a lowor latitude anil can be worked
the year round or almost so, without
tho hard labor lhat operations in tho
frigid Yukon entail. Again now placer
finds are reported upon the Stiekine,
still further south nnd it iB probable
that careful prospecting will show
that there is placer ground all through
the northern couutry.
But it is of the oountry immediately
north of tbo Canadian Pacific that we
would particularly speak, It ia known
to be a region rich in coppor enrrying
a fair percentage of gold. It is needless to say that the mun or company
that owns a copper mine whore the
metal is present in large bodies, possesses something more valuable than a
gold mine. Tbe copper mines of Spain,
which have been operated since before
the days of our Saviour ou earth, have
yielded fabulous returns to the state
uud nre still being worked with large
returns.
Copper has been discovered in this
neighborhood and in East Kootenay
nnd there ure widespread indications
of it, but it hiu not been found in
large bodies, save in north East Kootenay, in tho Golden division, where
it is said, sonic verv large leads have
beeu uncovered. An expert who wua
iu tho city a short time ugo, but does
nit wish to be named, told The Miner
that, in his opinion, founded until*
careful enquiry, north East Koolonay
Would provo the copper region of Brit-
COMMUNICATIONS.
COASTING ON  THE   SIDEWALKS.
To the Editor of The Miner,
Sir:���Through the medium of your
columns I would like to cull the attention of the city council to the absolutely
unsafe condition of the sidewalks during the snowy and frosty weather from
the practice of making every sidewalk
into sleigh slides by the young people.
The elder generation has not bo many
opportunities of taking exercise here
in the winter that they oan do without
a good sharp walk occasionally and
when those walks are so slippery from
children's slides, etc., I think something shoud be dono to, at any rate,
limit the practice. Iu the east sleigh
slidca aro not allowed except in the
roadways, and youugstera fouud sleighing on the sidewalks aro liable to a
penalty. Trusting that our city councillors will read, mark, learn and inwardly digest this and outwardly make
a by-law to atop sleighing ou the sidewalks.    Yours, etc.,
TARAWERA.

AN IMPORTANT CASE.
Lowenberg vs. A. MacDonald & Co.,
and the deputy sheriff. This action
was entered last wintor by tbe plaintiffs, 11 firm of merchants   of   Victora,
j B. O., for   an   injunction  restraining
\ tho defendants from proceeding with
the sale under their  execution   of  the
'goods of S. Gintzburger of McGuigan,
B. C., upon the ground that the chattel mortgage of the plaintiffs obtained from Gintzburger   for   about   $600,
1 some time prior to the issuo of the execution, took priority ovor tbe execution
I of the defendants. Tho defendants in
turn refused to consider either the
mortgage of the plaintiffs or that of
Crawford & McMillan for about $800,
Contending that ns tho jurat of each
chattel mortgage read "sworn to, before 1110, at Sandon" etc., (na is contained in the form of the statule,) the
mortgages were invalid as against
third parties and execution croditors.
The mutter was brought on at Victoria

Ur At tthe regular meeting of ihe city
council held yesterday afteruoon there
were present Mayor Houston and Aldermen Hillyer, Madden, Teetzel nnd
Whalley.
After the minutes of last-, meeting
were read aud adopted, a communication was read from Mr. F. W. Peters,
district freight agent of the 0. P. K.
inviting the mayor and counoil to ��� attend the formal opening of the Crow's
Nest Pass railway. The dato has not
yet beeu fixed but it will be during the
flrst week of December. Mr. Peters
requested thut a list of the memberB of
the couucil who would attend the excursion be sent to him.        	
All the members of the council who
were present expressed their desire to
accompany the excursion aud the city
clerk was instructed to notify Mr.
Peters to this effect and to thank him
for the invitation.
John LaPointe wrote offering to do
the excavation on Josephine street between Vernon aud Water streets for 81
cents per cubic yard. The communication was referred to the board of
works.
A letter was reoeived from G. 0.
Hodge requesting that the couucil extend the resolution prohibiting the
posting of bills, etc., oil electric light
poles passed ut last meeting, to include
telephoue poles. A resolution wus
passed in accordance with Mr. Hodge's
request.
Alderman Teetzel seconded by Aid.
Hillyer, introduced a motion rioom-
meuding that the city open negotiations with capitalists to secure the establishment ot refluing works iu Nelson.
In introducing the motion Mr. Teetzel stated that he understood that a
mint would shortly be established in
Oanada. The establishment* of a refinery in Nelson would I uvo a benefioial
effect in bringing min iug meu to the
oity and it might pay to offer a bonus
to auy oompany willing to establish
suoh an institution bere.
In tbe discussiou whioh followed on
the motion, the mayor and aldermen
expressed themselves in favor of the
resolution, which was passed.
The question of the youths of the
city coasting on the sidewalks was discussed and it was decided that the
practice be forbidden.
The mayor wns authorized to seleot
three streets iu different parts of the
oity on which coasting muy be indulged iu by tbe young people. The mayor
was also authorized to have placed on
all inclined sidewalks in the oity, and
to have gravel placed.on the sidewalks.
A number of accounts were, on recommendation of the finance committee passed for payment, after whioh
the counoil adjourned.

HANDS ACROSS THE SEA.
Well Played Under Difficulties at   the
Skating Rink.
A bumper house,greeted the first appearance of the R. E. Frenoh Theatre
Co., at the rink last uight, when
"Hands Across the Sea" was put on
the boards under the greatsst diffloulties. The improvised theatre was well
heated, and every arrangement made
for the comfort of the audience on the
part of the management, who even
took the precaution of bnviug the Hall
street sidewalk, or toboggan slide, literally covered with sawdust. As tlie
playgoers were flocking in, tlie lights
were flickering out, nnd long ere ticket
holders wero iu thoir seats the place
was in darkness. The failure of the
electrio light system of Nelsor is
nothing new to Nelsonites, but it came
as a big surprise to the theatre coiU-

Night flees apace; it Is now half gone.
Haste, love, and open the clour.

For our lovo must secret be.

NELSON MARKETS.
When young Jack Stuart threw np his
government job and left Washington last
spring without tolling whero he wos going, everybody naturally oonoludod that
ho had "gone to tho devil." People are
always eager to suy thut any man, especially if he is young and hundsome and
hasn't a penny in the world, has gone to
the devil. In tact, it ls the one way people havo for accounting for a fellow who
turns up missing, and then regarding each
other in a greedily curious way they Inquire, "Who's the woman?"
The fact that a fellow can go "to tha
devil" without the help of some woman
never enters the human mind, although
bo it noticed thot when a man reaches a
high degree of prosperity, when he makes
fume and name, peoplo never turn upon
one another and ask,'' Who's the woman?"
Now, as nobody could prove by which
route Jack Stuart had gone, there the
mutter rested, and if a newspaper reporter
had followed his career where it is now he
woi'Id throw down his pencil with a
"PshawI" or something stronger, adding
ln tones of disappointment: "It was a
woman, but she didn't send him to the
devil. Tho story's no good." The result
would be that the newspapers wouldn't
give it a paragraph, whoroas, had she
caused him to kill her, himself or tho other man, we would havo hud an illustrated
page.
The story as lt stands has, however,
something besides virtue to recommend it,
and maybe it Is worth the telling oven if
the several people conceruud will not like
to see it in print.
It began, or at least the winter of Its
discontent culminated, one evening last
Mureli in tlie cozy little living room of a
great, impressive house on Uu punt circle.
Juck Stuart was sitting iu one of thoso
corners which Invoke flirtation at tho beginning nnd more serious intentions after
close intimacy. His hands were stuffed
deep down in his pockets, uiul his handsome brow bore a deep, dismal frown.
The girl sitting on the link* stool in front
of him and resting an olbow familiarly on
his knee looked apon him with tender,
anxious sympathy in her eyes. They Iuul
evidently been discussing some grave subject, and tho youth broLc forth after his
moody silence:
"Hang it all, llttlo girl, I can't much
blamo your mother ft.*.* not liking uio
around."
"She wouldn't llko you around if you
hnd cords and cords of money, Jack. You
know mamma. She's determined I shall
marry a foreign title, aud I'm just as determined I shan't."
Tlie girl closed her pretty lips ln a way
that showed that she hnd not hud a father
whti had plowed through poverty and obscurity and dreadful hardships to a for.
tune for nothing. Thnt fortune intact lie
had foolishly left to his foolish widow,
She was a "character"���a term which
means ono of two things, either that a
woman hus none of any sort or tlint sho
has too much of an objectionable description. This particular woman belonged lo
the latter class.
"Well, I tell you, Doily, I do got low in
spirits. You see, my prospects aren't
good."
Juck took her hand and caressed it,
smiling thnt hopeless, bitter smile that
means so little und looks so much on tho
faco of a boy of 28.
"Tho namo of Stuart," he went on,
"can't carry a chap through Hfo. It can't
muke him rich or famous. It can't givo
him the girl lie wants, and he's not going
to steal her when she's a rich girl���that
would look like highway robliery, grand
larceny or something of tho sort. Of
courso that's what your mother would
say."
"Oh, mamma"���
"And it's what tho rest of the world
would say too. Here I have beon on a government salary of less than $100 a month
for two years. 1 came here and found lots
of old friends ami 1 went into society. I
tell you I'm sick of it. It's a Bawdust life,
this thing uf a fellow taking a room and
living on sandwiches at ufturnoon teas iuul
counting on the dinners he's asked to for
his sijuuro meals. I wanted to stop, and
then I met you and I couldn't, and horo I
am, worso olt thau ever. If I go away, I
will loso ymi If I stay hero and try to
study a profession, it will tako years und
ycai's. and I couldn't ask you to wait for
me.''
Sho patted hia hand tenderly. "Oh,
Jack," she said, "it would bo dreadful for
yiiu to go���awful fur you to leave me with
oiamuiu uud the count. Think of ltl
Why, It would be brutal 1" Tears welled
lu her eyes. "I could bo true. I wouldn't
forget, and I would be brave, but think of
mamma and fflio count!"
"Yes," Bald Jack, touching the soft love
locks aliout her luiehcad, "but think of
tho hole I'm in. Vou see, that plantation
of mino"���
"Oh, Jack, do you own a plantation?
Why, of course you do. All southerners
have plantations."
"Yes, and mine is tho worst of the lot,
and that's saying a great deal. I never
told you nbout it because I pet hot. When-
over 1 think of it 1 want to fight. I want
to fight a woman, und that's ungallant."
Tho Bcarlet mounted tu his brow and his
Voice was low and tense with hatred.
"Well, I will tell you," he went on.
"It's a fine Virginia plantation, and it's
all I have in tlie world It was my mother's property, und when Hho died iny father
married again���an old maid, his housekeeper���and when he died iny Btcpmother,
being a shrewd woman and as mean as
tho mischief, omployod Borne tricky lawyers, wlio got her a willow's dower out of
tho rent of my mother's plantation���a
widow's dower of $8,000 a yeur out of my
niuther's property, That's all tlio income
tho plantation affords You wouldn't
think I'd stay thero und work it, would
you?"
"1 should think not."
"It's my property, and every cont of the
Income goes to that old harpy."
"lint, dear, she will die some day."
"Did" with bitter incredulity   "Neverl
Nover I    The knotty variety of parasli.is
like mistletoe livo forever."
"And so you have nothing���ahsoluiily
nothing���out of what is rightfully yours
through your mother? Shameful! Shameful I" said the girl.
"I'm a big coward to tell you all this."
he went on, "but I felt so down  in my
luck that I had to talk.    Now, Iniigh*
have made money out of the plantation if
I had staid and worked it instead of leaving it to the tenants.    I might have mado
$Bnj, perhaps a $1,000, extra for myself
out of  it, but I oouldn't do it, Dolly.    I
just couldn't stay there and clothe and
feed that old woman with n.y own hands
Bho lives ln tho house, and���oh, well"���  '
"Yes, dear, I have mamma."
"Yes, but your mother  is���excuse me,
Dolly, but your mother  is  fat���plump, I
mean to Bay���and portly women must be
moro endurable than thin ones with claws
and beaks."
"Jackl"
"Yes."
"I'm thinking of that plantation.   I'm
���0 glad you've got it"
"Well, I'm not."
"Oh, but you will be.   You see I didn't
know you had property, and that wns making it hard for me.    I thought of that collection of old family miniatures of yours
you showed me, and I thought that might
do."
"Do?   Do for what?" he ejaculated.
"Nevermind.    It really wouldn't anyway.   What I want you to give me now ls
a mortgage���a gonuino mortgage for $6,-
000 on that Virginia property."
"What?"
"How much ls the property worth?"
"Oh, perhaps $15,000 I should say. But
What on earth"���
"Well, it's just this," said the girl excitedly. "I am to give you $5,000. ��� It is
the income I have Saved from sbme property left me. I am to give you $6,OU0, and
you aro to borrow lt from me by fixing up
a mortgage on your plantation for that
amount My lawyer will attend to lt in
regular form. Papa didn't leave me his
business head for nothing, Jack, dear."
"And what am I to do with the monoy?"
asked the youth aghast.
"Now, I've been thinking out all that
for months. I thought lt out when I was
dancing, and I had long, restful, delicious
thinks over it while men were twaddling
their nonsense at me. Papa made his pile
mining, you know, and what havo you
studied mining and engineering for if yon
can't make yours that way too? You remember talking to me about gold possibilities in Alaska? Woll, I want you to take
this monoy and try your luck there. And
���oh, Jack, don't be so rude and don't kiss
me whilo I'm talking, und don't look at
mo as if you'd cry with feeling if you
weren't 6 feot in your stockings���your
socks, I moan. You are to go to Alaska
and make a fortune���a great, big fortune,
Jack, big enough to mako mamma quail
before you and to convert the count into a
poor little, black, trickling grease spot at
your mighty feot." m
Dolly Radnor was a little body, nnd she
was almost breathless and decidedly tumbled and out of order when she emerged
from his enthusiastic recognition of hor
devotion. Tho big fellow stood -up and
held her at arm's length and looked at her
���oh, I can't begin to tell you how he
looked at her���and then ho gathered her
up in his armB again, and presently they
both sat down and he said, "Oh, Dolly,"
in a voico hushed with tender emotion,
"Oh, Dolly, 1 can't accept"
And then she put her little, soft, white
hand across his lips and said in tho decisive way belonging to small women: "You
are accepting nothing. I am making you
a loan, sir. If a girl can't help a chap sho,
loves before sho gets him, slie shui'.kln't
ever have the right to do it afterward,
that's all. And���well, if you don't let die,
I'll���I'll marry tho count or that licr.-tiy
old officer with tho wooden leg or a Chinese uttacho or something liko a jack in
the box from Korea."
They both laughed, and there was much
personal talk and argument and niuny
caresses that need not bo recorded hero.
Suffice It to 6ay that two weeks after this
conversation Jack Stuart throw up his job
and went to Alaska instead of to the devil,
as everybody thought, bis coniifanions'
during his stay thore being not tl.e ile\ il's
servants���women, wine, cigarettes and
cards���but instead a miniature of a-.ery
beautiful girl smiling from a frame nf turquoise, a faco all Washington society would
recognize, nnd to keep its memory right in
tho heart of its owner thoro were Icitcrs���
long, dollcious, crossed und reei'0:-sicl letters���scented with violets and oi-nttmeiiied
with a modest monogram. Dully ltuiliior

The last ono of these letters was a bit
curt and Impatient,    it read:

She didn't add that she was wearing all
of her last summer's frocks; tlmt sho
hadn't a new gnwn or u new hat to her
namo; that everything liad been .cut off
from tlio first of tho year���at hast all tiie
spending money her mother gavo her���on

count. And, as for her own income, she had
taken the whole of that for a year in advance to lend to a certain young lellow
who liad recently dug a fortune out of an
Alaska goldileld. This young lellow has

and Mrs. Radnor is as yet liuroly reconciled
