Maddy was  fond of jewelry���as what  yqung girl is not'.-and felt a liush of  -   gratified   pride,   or   vanity,   or   satisfaction, whichever one chooses to call  it,   as   she  glanced  at   herself, in   the  mirror   and��� remembered     the    time  when, riding with the doctor, she,had  ,       ''met Sirs.

The day had come  sooner than she then anticipated, but  ,   Maddy  was   not  as  happy  in   posses.;  sion of-, the covered ornaments as she  had   thought   she   should   be.     Somehow, it seemed to her that Guy ought  not to have given  them to her;'that  '       it was improper for her to keep them,'  and that both  Mrs.'Noah and   x\gnes  thought to, too.,   She wished she knew,  exactly   what   was"   right,   and   then,  ' remembering  that1 Guy had said the  .doctor   was   expected   early,   she  decided to ask his opinion'on/the subject and abide  by  it.

(-   The doctor'had  never forgotten Maddy as she was then, the very embodiment, he thought of ( helpless purity.  The little sick girl, so dear to him  then, was growing away irom him  now; and these adomings which marked tne budding woman, seemed to le-  move her from him and place her  nearer to Guy,v whose bride should  *��� wear jewels, just as Maddy did.  She was very glad 'to see him, she  said, asking in the same breath why  he had' not been to the cottage, u  she had not grown tall, and if he  thought her 'impioved with living in  a  city.  "One   question   at   a   time,   if   you  ,"    please," he said, drawing her a little  more   into   the   shadow   of   the   hall,  where they would be less observed by  anyone  passing   through.  Maddy did not wait for him to answer, so eager was she ,to unburden  her mind and know if she ought'to  keep the costly presents, at which she  knew  he  was  looliing.  "If he  remembers  his  unpaid   bill,  he niust consider me mighty mean,"  , . she thought; and then, with her usual  frankness,   she   told   him   of  the   perplexity and asked his opinion.  "It would displease Mr. Guy very  much if 1 were to 'give them back,"  she said; "but it hardly is right for  me to accept them, is it?"      ��� -��*.,  The doctor did -not, say she ought  not to wear the ornaments, though  he longed to tear them from her arms  and throw them anywhere, he cared  not where, so they freed her wholly  from   Guy.  They were very becoming, he said,  She would not look as well without  them; so she had better wear them  to-night, and to-morrow, if she would  see him, he would talk with her further.  Dissembling doctor' He said all  this to gain the desired interview  with Maddy, the interview for which  Guy was to prepare her. That he had  not done so he felt assured, but he  could not be angry with him, as he  came smilingly toward them, asking  if they had talked in privacy long  enough, and glancing rather curiously at Maddy's face. There was nothing in its expression to disturb him,  and, offering her his arm, he led her  back to the drawing rooms where  Agnes was smoothing down the folds  of her dress, preparatory to receiving the guests just descending the  stairs. It was a brilliant scene which  Aikenside presented that night, and  amid it all Agnes bore herself like  s. queen; while Jessie, with her sunny  face and golden hair, came in for a  full share of attention. But amid the  gay throng there was none so fair or  no beautiful as Maddy, who deported  herself with .as much ease and grace  as if she had: air her life; long been  accustomed to just such, occasions as  this. At a distance the doctor watched her, telling several who she was,  and once resenting by both look and  manner a remark made by Maria Cutler to the effect that, she was nobody  but Mrs. Remington's governess,ii a  poor girl whom'Guy had. taken a fancy  to (educate out of charity.  "He. seems very fond of his charity  pupil, upon my word. He, scarcely  leaves her neighborhood at all," whispered old Mrs. Cutler, the mother of  Maria, who, Guy said, once fancied  Dr. Holbrook. and who had no particular objections to fancying him  now,  if it could  be reciprocal  its various modulations.  "Oh,' please, Mr. Remington, anything but a song. 1 cannot sing,"  Maddy whispered pleadingly; but Guy  answered resolutfly, "You can "  was <Jne 6T me cTTjrch people referred  to.  "But MsilH''.

There was  a blur before her eyes, a buzzing in'  her ears, and just as the dancers were  entering heart 'and soul( into the merits of a popular polka', there was a  sudden pause in the music, a crash  among the keys, and a faint cry,  which-to those nearest to her sounded very much like ."Mr. Guy." ,as  Maddy fell forward with her face upon ' the piano. It was hard telling  which carried her from the room, the  " THIS IS IT���  St. George's  Baking Powder  ���the baking powder that make*  the best Bread���the whitest Biscuits  ���the lightest Cake and Pastry���  yon ever safe."

"I'm glad there's,  a Lucy Atherstone over the sea." 'And  with a smile of encouragement for  Maddy, who was 'pale with nervous,  timidity, he listened' while ,her sweet,  birdlike voice' trembled for a nioment  with fear; and then, gaining confidence from its own sound, filled the  room with melody, and made those  who had wandered' off to other, parts  of the building" hasten back to ' see  who was singing."     fr    \ "    '  Maria   Cutler   had   presided   at   the  piano earlier  in  the evening, as had  one  or  two  other"young'ladies,  but  to none of these  had, Guy paid .half  the attention he.did to.Maddy, stayi  ing' constantly   by   her,   holding cjher  fan, turning the leaves of music, and  dictating what she  should play.  / "There's'devotion,"'-tittered a ,miss  in long ringlets; ,"but'she really does  play well,", and she appealed, to Maria  Cutler,  \whoa  answeredt    "Yes,    she  keeps good time, and I should think  might play for a dance.    I mean to  ask ,her," and going up to Guy she  said,   "I  wish   to   speak   to-^-to���well.  Jessie's   governess1.'      Introduce ,me,  please*." / ,"     ,  Guy waited till Maddy was through,'  and, then gave ' the desired .introduction^, i In a tone not.wholly free'from  superciliousness, .Maria said: '���������  ,"Can 'you play, a waltz or polka,  Miss Clyde? We are aching to exercise   our   feet."     , s (l   ,'  Maddy bowed' and struck into a  spirited walta, which set many of the  people present to whirling in circles",  and produced .the result which Maria  .so much desired, {��viz., it drove Guy  away -from ' the piano, for-he-could  not mistake her evident wish^to have  him as a partner, and with his rarm.  around her waist he was', soon moving rapidly ' from that* part of the'  room, leaving only the doctor to'watch  Maddy's fingers as they flew over the  keys. Maddy never thought of be-,  ing .tired. She' enjoyed cthe excitement, and was glad she could do  something toward entertaining Guy's  quests.-   But Guy  did-not  forget  her  for an instant. Through all the mazes  of the giddy ,dance, he had her be^  fore his eyes, seeing not the clouds'  of lace and'muslin encircled by his  arm, but.the little figure in blue sitting so patiently at the piano until  he knew she must be tired, and determined to release her. As it chanced, Maria was again his partner, and  drawing her nearer to Maddy, he said,  "Your fingers ache by this time, > I  am sure. It is wrong to trouble you  longer. -Agnes will take" your . place  while you try a quadrille with me.". .  "Oh, thank you," Maddy answered.  "I am not tired in the. least. I had'  as lief play till morning, provided  they are satisfied with ray time and  my stock ot music holds out."  "But it is' not fair for one to do  all the playing; besides, I want you  to dance with me���so consider, yourself invited in due form to be my next  partner." ���  Maddy's face crimsoned for an instant, and then in a low Voice she  said, "I thank vou, but I must decline."  "Maddy!" Guy exclaimed, in tones  more indicative of reproach than expostulation.  There were tears in Maddy's eyes,  and Maria Cutler, watchine her, was  vexed to see how beautiful was the  expression of her face as she answered frankly. "\ have never told  you that grandpa objected to my taking dancine lessons when T wrote to  him about it. He does not like, me  to  dance."  "A saint'" Maria uttered under her  breath, smiling contemptuously as she  made a movement to leave the piano,  hoping  Guy  would  follow her.  But. he did not at once. Standing  for a moment irresolute, while he  looked curiously at Maddy, he said  at last:  "Of course I interfere with no one's  scruples of that kind, but T cannot  allow you to wear yourself out for our  amusement."  "I like to play���please let me."  was Maddy's reply; and. as the set  upon the floor were waiting for her,  she turned to the instrument, while  Guy mechanically offered his arm to  Maria, and sauntered toward the  green room.  "What a blue old ignoramus that  trrandfather must be to object to danc-  inc. don't you  think?"  Maria laughed a little spitefully,  secretly glad that Maddy had refused, and secretly angry'at Guy for  seeming  to care so  much.  "Say," she continued, as Guy did  not answer her,, "don't you think it  a sign that something is lacking in  brains or education, when a person  sets up  that dancing k wicked?"  Guy would have taken Maddy's  side then, whatever he might have  thoneht,   and   he replied:  "No lack of brains, certainly;  though education and circumstances  have much to do with one's views  noon that subject. For my part, I  like to see people consistent. Now,  that old ignoramus, as you call'him,  lays great stress on pomp and vanities, and when T n*ked him.once what  he meant by fhem, he mentioned dancing in particular as one of the things  which you church   people promise to  three-'was   the   whitest.     Guy's   was  the   most  frightened,   for  the   doctor  knew, she   had   only   fainted, 'while  Guy, struck with, the marble  rigidity  of the  face so  recently  flushed  with  excitement, said at firs,t. "She's, dead "  while  overturn   there  flashed   a   feeling .that life with Maddy d?ad would  be desolate indeed.    But Maddy, wa.��  not   dead,   and   Guy,. when   he   went  back  to  hia  guests  carried   the  news  Ih'nt   she, had   recovered   from     he'r  faint,   which   she   kindly  ascribed   to  (he hent of the rooms, instead of fatigue from  playing so long.,< The doctor was with'her-and she was, doing  is   well   as   could   be   expected,     he  said, thinking within himself hojv lie  wished, '!they   would 'go '��� home.

Maddy, too, was delighted with the  'party, 'declaring, that nothing but  pleasurable excitement and ,heat had*  made her faint, and then, with all  the interest* which'young girls'usually attach' to fainting fits, she asked  how she looked, ,how she acted, if  she didn't appear very ridiculous, and  how she got out >of the room,1 saying  "the.only thinga she remembered after  falling was a sensation as if she were  being torn in  two. ��� *  "That's it," cried Jessie, who readily volunteered the desired information.

With four ravenous timber wolves  battling fiercely with a black bear in  the wilds along the upper Peace river, Countess' Mehrenc de St. Pierre  of St. Brieue. Brittany, France, lay  concealed behind a windfall less than  20 feet away and watched the struggle for nearly a quarter of an hour.  Thia occurred several weeks ago while  the titled woman from across the Atr  lantic was making a trip through the  unexplored region north of Edmonton,  with only Indian guides for'her companions. Countess de St. Pierre, in  speaking of the struggle, said:  "For a time the honors were about  even,- and so intent were the participants, upon   the  fight  that they  did  not  notice   the  approach   of  the   Indian, guide and myself."   He had been  breaking trail through a heavily wooded'forest, the Indian making his way  ���through   the  timber  and   underbrush  without any more'-noise,.-that the'occasional* crackling of a twig beneath  hid moccasins.   Following his instructions. I.placed my feet'in the tracks  left   by   his   moccasins." and   in   this-  way we were able to advance quietly.

If,a Canadian warehouseman  has anything  to  sell  he soon lets you know about it,  and it is a common belief in Canada  that the, business  that doesn't know  how  to  advertise might as   well   put  up-the ''shutters.     The   advertising  genius  is   a  product  of the  country.  H'i   spreads   himself   over  the  daily  papers, he disfigures the prairie with  hideous   boards,   and  in  the   city  he  turns   night  into  day   by  his  illuminated signs.    Possibly he is seen at  his  best in  this latter respect. He is  lavish  in   his  use of electricity, and  the man  who has not advanced further than the changing lights of red  and_ white -is- a "mere   novice  in  the  business. r Designs weird and fanciful,  catch the eye; in one case you have  a_ clever   imitation 'of   forked   lightning;  in   another  a  wonderful   combination   of   lights, and   colors   that  compels attention.'     ���    .

The   other  day   a   remarkable   old  man, one of the early pioneeis of the  interior   of   British   Columbia,   made  hi.-<  way  from   the  Cariboo  gold  district   to   the   town  of   Ashcroft,   and  boarded a train for the east.'   It was  th-i  first. railway  train lie   had  ever  seen, the electric lights, too, and all  the  other  eights  of  modern   civilization were,entirely new to him,  ,  In   1852   this   man,    James   Siven-  wnght' by    name;    then   twenty-one  year9 of_ age, left his home' in,Scot- r.  land  and   sailed   for    America.      He  landed in New" York,   where for several years he worked as a mechanic,  He soon  tired,  however, of the tedious' routine and decided to strike out  for the, west.   In 1859 he crossed the  Isthmus of Panama and up the coast  tj San Francisco, which was then  a  trading post.    California did  not appeal to" him, and he embarked on  a  vessel for Victoria, arriving there  in  the month of September.-- He wintered  there and "that season engaged in  hunting   on��the 'Mainland    and^ the  . Island/ some being'done on the very  ground"where now stands Vancouver.  In  February, with a party of miners  h.>  followed the Eraser iiiver up' to  Lytton,   and   for   two   years , engaged  in   mining  between   that   place   and  Lillooet.    He  then  went to   Caribpo,  and for forty-five years followed mining in that section with varied sue-  ,cess.   r c  t   Such  wissi the lure  of'Nh'e   country  of  mines  and  big game, that Siven-  wright lived   for( nearly, fifty   yeara,  there,    without    venturing   into   the*1  world of pien and changing life thai  Li, constantly  pushing   back   the  old.  .frontiers.    It was not from dullness  of   mind,    but   clearly   from, choice,''  that he kept to the interior, for,to a  newspaper,reporter he  said: '"I,had  read ,.and   seen   pictures  of   railway  trains,' and  I  knew   what to  expect  when ' I   came,'here.    Although   my  sight, was not   educated'to   modern  times, I kept, my   mind   in   training-  by, reading mechanical publications."  Recently, Sivenwright,  who  is  now  seventy-six 'years >of age,'-resolved, to  return -to  Scotland to  end-.'his  dayp.  so he> emerged from the 'gold .district,'  and took a train for the east.

"Your stories of the englishman in  the Calgary district remind me of  one I heard when living in Calgary,  which was vouched for as being an  actual occurrence." writes a Vancouver correspondent to Saturday  Night.  "It seems that a young Englishman  who was out thore getting experience  on a ranch, was endeavoring to wean  a calf, but could not get it to drink  milk out of tho pail, so he came back  to tho family and recounted his difficulty.  " 'Oh,' they said, 'go back and give  it your fingers,' referring to the well-  known method of teaching a calf  'how.'  "He strolled away with a thoughtful  air and was gone a rather long time,  so they ' went round to see what he  wsa doing, and found, him with his  fingers in the calf's mouth while'the  pail,of milk stood some little distance  away. He looked up as they approached   and  said  innocently:  "'! don't think it can be very  nourishing, hnt he seems t-o like it.'"

This is the result of the large  , number of American couples' coming  over to be wedded.  Dr. Hodgetts advises the amendment of the law, making it necessary  that one of the contracting parties  should have resided fifteen days in  "the province before the ceremony is  performed. "In this manner the system .of hasty marriages, to callit by  a simple name, would be materially  improved. 'Certainly at present,",  says Dr. Hodgetts, "it is a blot on the  good name of the province and a stigma to those trafficking, therein."  The death rate remains practically  unaltered at 14 2. there having been  only'81 more deaths in the province  during 1905. as compared with the  previous year. , Of the population  2.1.3 per cent., is in the towns and  cities.

At   the   head  3f the Canadian Pacific are  not only  many of the ablest men of the country,, but,  because of   the  vast enterprise they own and administer on the  land  and  rivers,   the  lakes   and   the  oceans, men .exceptionally in a position to .judge the likely course of future events.,   In such  circurnbtances,  the', words    of    Sir Thomas ' Shaugh-  nessy,   resident   0f     the    company,  speaking  for  the  board  of  directors,  are  most  convincing,     T,he " d'rectdrs  'are convinced that Canada will con-  'tinue to progress, and that if there  'be any temporary set-back resulting  'from financial  conditions,, in'   other  'parts of the world, it will prove comparatively   unimportant.',    Therefore'  it is held to be vitally important that  the Ciuladiah  Pacific  should  proceed  without"cessation in the course adopted  some years ago, 'of adding to the  railway's' facilities, in every direction  so as to be 'prepared to cope with the  'very largely .'increased traffic sure to  'be thrown on your lines.'

The perfection of  our summer and autumn vwas the salient feature' of our climate, not the  cold of winter.. After showing, that  climate does hot depend altogether  Oil listance from the equator, but on  altitude, size of land area, and circulation of the earth's atmosphere,  since Toronto is 550 miles <south of  London, Mr. Stupart. described the  climate of the various provinces.  He was-dubious as to whether the  country lying between Lakes Athabasca and Slave and Hudson Bay can  ever be used for agricultural purposes. At Fort Churchill the mean  temperature of June is no higher than  that of MacLeod for April, and for  July not as high as in --Mackenzie  River' at the Arctic circle. With regard to Northern Ontario from the  height of land to James Bay there is  nothing in temperature conditions to  prevent this being a good agricultural  country almost to the shores of the  bay.  For National Betterment.  The Governor-General, Lord Grey,  speaking recently before the inaugural  luncheon of the Women's Canadian  Club, Montreal, at which Lady Drum-  mond presided, highly recommended  the work done by the men's Canadian Clubs throughout the Dominion.  Co-operative union was necessary for  the attainment of national betterment,  and Canadian Clubs made for na:  iional, not party'good.  He hoped the example would soon  be taken-up in other cities.  No two people, Lord, Grey, said,  were more, in need of each other than  the French and English. The blenaV,  ing , of the best qualities of each  would , make  the best sort of man.  In ' reply ' to the question, "What  can the women of Canada do to help-  their country "he said .that they  should shut the doors of their houses  against men who corrupt domestic  and national life, . and . close their  drawing-rooms to men who, in sport,  business or politics, hit below tita  belt.
