Last Monday a bunch of AToyie  Odd Fellows, journeyed to Cranbrook and paid* the members of  Key City lodge a fraternal visit.  Those ' who went were: A. G.  Monkhouse. R.' Campbell, "W. H.

Work in the third degree  was conferred by the Moyie degree team, after which there wa.s  a social session. Tables were  spread and all sat down to a  splendid lunchoon.

A   very, noticeable* feature  in  connection with this  benefit con-  i l  cert is the fact that those who are  doing the most work and who are  contributing their talent  towards  the  success  of    the   even Lug, are  persons who have the least^ cause  to fear loss from  fire  should  town bo visited  by.'* a  tion.    Every person who  owns  a  building or value their belongings  should come forward    on thia  oc-  cassion, and if they  cannot  sing,  dance or tell a story, they should  at least buy a ticket .to help along  j a work deserving of the most gen  erons supriort.

She bad tipped a chair back against  the door,'wedging it beneath the knob  so that she might be saved from interruption, then flung herself' into another seat and stared unseeingly. As  she sat thus and thought and schemed  harsh and hateful lines seemed lo eat  into her , face. Now and then she  moaned impatiently, as though fearing  lest tho strategy she was plotting  might prove futile; then she would,  rise and pace her narrow quarters.  She was unconscious of time and had  spenti perhaps two hours thus' when  amid the buzz of talk in the next  compartment she heard a name which  caused -her to start, listen, then drop  her preoccupation like a mantle. A  man was speaking of Glenister. Excitement thrilled his voice.  "I never saw anything like it sinc-i  McMantor's night in Virginia City,  thirteen years ago. lie's right."

Then it's your money he's winning!" ,  "Sure, at the rate of a thousand a  minute."   '  She glanced at the'long trail of devastated tables behind Glenister and  his .followers. At that .instant the  sound told that the miner bad won  again, and it dawned upon Cherry that  the, gambler beside her stood too quietly, that his hand and voice were too  steady, his glance too cold to be natural. The next moment approved her  instinct. ,  The musicians, grown tired of their  endeavors to lure back the dancers,  determined to join the excitement and  ceased playing. ,The leader laid down  his violin, the pianist trailed up the keyboard with a departing twitter and  quit his stool. They all crossed the  hall, headed for the crowd, some of  them making ready to bet. As they  approached the Bronco Kid. bis lips  thinned and slid apart slightly, while  error and' should -tlie position ' of. his  counters not tally with the cards in the  box on the "last turn," all bets on the  table are declared'void.

In  other   words,    he   would    employ"'^ a  ^"straight box," but a deck of cards,  certain ones of Which had been, roughened or sandpapered slightly, so that;  ,by pressing  more heavily on  the top  or exposed,card, the one beneath would  stick  to" Its neighbor  above  and   thus  enable-him to deal two witb* one 'motion  If tlie occasion  demanded.

News  oi liis winnings had gone out into tlio  street, and the sporting men were coming to share his fortune, to fatten like  vultures on the adversity'of ���their fellows.

A United States cruiser out destroying derelicts found its water supply  running low. The water tanks are  usually filled ,at Corn Island, but the  ship was top fnr from it to sail there  without losing precious time, which it  could not afford to do then, as it was  hot on the track of a particularly dangerous derelict, and the chase hud led  pretty well down toward the coast of  Honduras. So when a low bunk of  purple that might be a cloud or might  be land wns seen low down on the  eastern horizon it was decided to  make for it in the hope that it might  turn ont to he a small coral island  yet uncharted.  It proved to be a little island about  three-quarters  of  a  mile   around and  a   quarter   mile   wide.     Tn   shape   it  wns   long  and  narrow,,   with   a  thick  growth of vines  and bushes reaching  down to the water's very edge   Throe  tall coeoanut palms grew in the middle of it.    No life of any kind was on  the  island, nor was there any water,  though  instead,   of    being    sandy   or,  rocky,   as   siich   islands   usually   are;  the   soil    was   rich,   dark   and   very  moist.   .'After.'gathering the cocoanuts  the.   sailors   returned... to . the   cruiser,  which,, oddly  enough,   seemed   much  farther off and  considerably /more to  the   southwest  than when   thoy   loft  her.     Then' it just dawned  on' thorn  that   they   had ', been   visiting   one   of  tlie   floating   islands . so   often   heard  about, but seldom seen, in the south ,  Atlantic.'     Further   observation   soon  ���|..confirmed the .suspicion; as the eruis-  {.er,..remained  near'it .long enough  to  'see'the'island, change its position.  These floating islands are parts of  other islands torn away by. hurricanes  or some grent. seismic upheaval. They  drift i-bbut for months, moving slowly with the winds and currents, held  together by the malted roots of .'tree?'  find plants until they either attach  'themselves'again to solid land or are  disintegrated and eaten away by the  action of the waves.. In some rare  instances thoy gather other flotsam  of the sea to "themselves and, stranding on a reef, become in time a new  island.  practic ���  ,--  . , -      .       -     ���  worship; and any chief who counter--1 send a photograph for us^wj.thr a  ances such trials by ordeal or piohibit- j special aiticle oi your woik in" that  ed ju-ju worship is liable, on convio-   line." xsi rilb'i  tion,   to   a   fine  of  $1,000,   or' to   im- ]     "Such   is  iame,'   said   Mr. .Shaw.���  prisonment for three years    These are   Philadelphia Press,  far-reaching provisions, which our .vivacious    Nigerian   correspondent,    in  j the   exercise    of   his    quasi-chieitain  ! jurisdiction, will do well to avoid.
