F. Robertson,   Provincial    mineralogist,  has,  been received at  this  office.    It  contains J2.'j0 pages of matter .relative   lo  tlie mineral sections of   tho  Province,  besides numerous  half   lono  illustra-,  tions of places and  things  of interest  in that area.    Mr. Robertson  lias  exercised great care in compiling his  report and has spared no pains  in making   it both   accurate   and   reliable.  The  mines of East- Kootenay    have  been given . greater  prominence   than  in any previous report.    We  herewith  publish a portion of the report.dealing  with the mines on Moyie lakes :  ,    . MOYIE LAKES.  The Moyie lakes are a widening of  the Moyie river, some IS miles south  of Cranbrook, lying between two .lines  of low. mountains sloping up at an  angle of about 25* degrees from the  water'.-* edge. The Crow's Neat Pass  Branch railway skirts .the eastern  shore'of-the ]akes,"arid is uow in operation. .<  Tho town ��� of Moyie ;$ .situated on  the eastern shore of the most south-  erh' of (he two lakes, and i*j already a  ilonrishins little town with five'hotels,  nearly as man}' stores, and a number  of-private houses.  Thc coun'tiyrock is composed of  erevish slates aud shales, with beds  of quartzite dipping nt an angle of  about lo degrees to thc east info the  hill, k On tlie mountain, just above  the town of Moyie, a number of locations have. been made, and here is  situated the St. Eugene mine, while I  ���>ero*-cs the lake the Aurora group has J  been located.

The  underground development has, however, been so extensive und -j!u-,eessful  that'the surt'aco indications are' not of  snob'folativo importance. I shall not  notice them 'further tii'au   to -.Say  that  v,y  the solid ore was again struck. After  striking the' ore the work had been  continued some 250 feet, at the time  I s-aw it in Juno, and had carried ore  for the width of the tunnel all the way  in to thi face. In this tunnel a couple of small igneous dykes have cut  across the lead, but do not appear to  have been accompanied by faulting  to any extent. At the time of my  visit thero was a dyke cutting across  the face which had not yet been cut  through," but from past experiences  and surface indications was not creating any excitement in the minds o{  tho management.  Prom   ihe    development   made    it  would appear   that   theie    is   an   ore  chute   outcropping    on    the    surface  from No, 2 *-bafl for a distance of  GOO  fcL-t to the east,- so f.tr as   yet  known ;  and lhat such ore chute has a  dip   of  about  'lo  degrees   to  the  east���i.  e.,  into the  hill.    This  ore  chute has   a  width, of  from   3   (o   G   feet,  safely  averaged at -1 feet,  and   while  it contains a considerable percentage of absolutely solid galena, it is partly made  up of ore that shouULbe concentrated.  The best class of ore is  Stated  by  the.  management to assay 70 per cent lead  and about 50 o'tlncee  of silver   to  the  tori.,.' '  Tlie surface openings -jhow up two  other leads of similar character, "with  from G to 2*1 inches of galena, which  may be parallel leads or , only spurs  froni the main lead;! sufficient work  not having been done on them to determine wioh.  Since my visit I ani informed that  a wagon road has been'.built from the  mine.to Moyie; arid that shipments of  first class ore will be 'ra'a'dc M1*3' year';  Should   development continue  satis-  Active   Operations  -ivJIl   JJe  Commoncetl  Without Delay.  �� -All doubt is now removed regarding the.-, building of the St. .Eugene  concentrator, flume and tramway.  James Cronin,' manager and part  owner of the mine, returned from  Spokane last evening. When --seen  this morning by a representative of-the  .���"���*-",  Leader he said that the work would  go right along without delay. That  the contract for building the tramway-  had already been  let,  and , that. work  on tho concentrator and flume   would  .- ,        i  . i  begin as   soon  as  possible.    Thei site  for the concentrator is   being  cleared,  and several sawmill firms are  figuring  on the furnishing 'of  the   lumber  for  the building, -which   will  amount   to  some 300,000 feet.    The  concentrator  will have a. capacity  of   from   100 to  150 tons per day.    The  working force  at the mine   will   be increased   to  25  men for the  present, and   perhaps  50  will be a conservative estimate of   the  number of men that wi-i be  employed  on the other works  of   the   company,  making 75  in  all.    xVs   soon    as  the,  road between the mine and the siding  is free   from   snow   the   hauling from  the mine and shipments of ore will bp  resumed, and will continue until   the  mill   and    tramway   are, in   running  order.   ���  Nearly a half carload of supplies for  the mine, consisting of candles, steel,  shovles, picks, grind stones and two  bellows came in on last evening's  train and were unloaded.  Thc absolute certainty of this work  going ahead will have a stimulating  effect on Moyie. and is an assurance  of the town going steadily ahead this  summer. '  Ijftku Shove Hotel Lcnsod.

The town of Lee,, N.II.,  though covering  a large  territory,  is so  sparsely
settled   that  one   might    almost     ride
through   it   without   meeting1   a   lialf-
noren   persons.       Indeed,   it   covers   so
much trround that the various sections
>   where there are clustered together any
considerable    number     of  houses    all
9,bear different name.**, as Lee- Hill,  Lee
Hook, Lee, or Leo Depot, as it is more
•!-oi'nino'il.v knowm. because of the railroad station, and-lastly AVndley's Falls.
Wadley's  Falls  i.s  the sour hern most
and most populous section of thc- town.
It, is in  the Immediate- vicinity of the
low'falls in the Lamprey river, which
i tins , through   the   place.      This  river,
though at   times  so shallow  that   one
might    wade   across   tn   many   places,
turns   numerous    mills    in   its   course.
Unth river and falls play an important
pari  in this history.
A good road leads from the depot at
Lee. anil with a few t*asy turns winds
its way uphill, passing- tho farm,and
homesteads of tho Lewises, and on a
mile further, where the river i.s crossed
hy a bridge. Beyond one finds the
Wadley's Falls' post-office and the saloon. , The bridge, being of some interest to us. must receive a, moment's
description. To-day' there is a neat
iron structure at this point, but-at the
time of which i write a woode.ii ramshackle affair did duty for man and
horse. It was situated about fifty feet
to the south of the falls, and where
the river winds under it many a huge
boulder projects, making- the rushing
Mi earn the more noisy. Here also to
the north is a dam, and over on the
east bank stands an old ruin, whicli
is still in use as a  sawmill.-
The Lewis farm i.s bounded on the
east by ihe Lamprey and on the north
by the ri"*ad. which at this point runs
eastward. After crossing; the bridge it
turns to the south, following a somewhat parallel course with the river, so
that did one choose he could leave the
read on the south side of the .bridge,
and by crossing a narrow stia'p of land
and the .river be upon the Lewis farm,
which   covers  over  200 acres.
That you may well understand the
deduction.*- which the detectives reached from the study of the grounds, it
will be best for you to follow closely
a description- of the place with the
assistance of the accompanying map :
' AA—Gates. P.—-Paved walk. CCC—Pl-
az;as. D—Hall. JO—Parlour. F—Virginia's room. O—Library. II—Lewis'
room. . 1—Dining-room. K—Kitchen. L
—Boat-landing. MN—Two parts of :um-
raer-house. O—Window through which
a shot was supposed to have boon tired.
PPP—Chimneys with ilruplace opening*!.
K—Maple tree. SSS—Closets. The plan
of the house, as here given, i.s out of
prorioriion to surrounding grounds, but
is enlarged that it may be more read iiv
understood. The footprints found by the
detectives are represented by the dotted
linos, and are numbered as" Mr. Barnes
numbered them. Tho arrows show the
ttii ec-tion.
-V beautiful grassy lav. n is separated
from the road by a. neat paling fence,
in which there are two gates, one opposite ttie main entrance to the dwelling and the other opening into the
grounds, about a couple of rods to the
east (AA). Passing thrnug-h the first
of thes/? a brick path (13) leads the
visitor to a piazza (C), three steps
above the ground and extending tho
full width of the build ins-. Knlerincf,
.-ne finds himself in a spacious hall
(D), which on the first floor divides
the house in thc centre, doors leading
Into the rooms on either side and into
one   at   the  farther   end.
To the west is the libraiy (('.), back
iz-t that Lewis' bedroom (H)'and beyond, again, th.- kitchen (K). On the
tast side and facing the lawn and river i.s the parlour <.£:,, wherein the
corpse w as discovered, then Virginia's apartment (F) and the dining-
room {1), which is as wide as tht.* parlour and hall.
lt willI be.;een by consulting the plan
that Virginia's room communicates
with parlour, hall, and dining-room,
which latter has a door leading on to a
small piazza, and thus i.s approached
readily from the lawn. PPP repre-
st nt chimneys, each serving ior two
rooms, and O is the window looking
toward the .summer-house (JIN) alluded
to by Bun-uw-Si, and through wliich he
thought  the fatal shot had   been  fired.
'Hie various dotted lines ivnresent
the differenr tracks or footprints in the
new-fallen snow, but further allusion
will be made to these later, as this diagram is a facsimile of thc* one made
by Mr. Barnes and used by him in his
study of the case.
Jt will be remembered that just heft-re leaving the parlour Mr. Barnes
stood for a moment looking from the
window'. While there he noticed tho
piazza with which the dining-room
communicated, and he deemed this a
suitable way to get out on the lawn,
-so when in. the hall he looked for a
way to reach the room into which he
judged that the door on the piazza
opened. Seeing the door at the end of
the hall, he at once entered the dining-room and went thence out to the
porch.' Before descending the steps he
stood a moment and looked about, him,
Burrows   at   hi.s   side.      At   length   he
"Tom, I think we are in luck, for
hi*r'..* wi; have a fresh fall of snow, and
plaiuiy there have been several peo-

every   direction.".

intend to follow, as far as J can.' the
ditferent tracks before us from beginning to end. That will at least show
me the ground iravelled_over by tnos-2
who have been hei e." even though it
tell but littl? of the ooject or personalities of th<2 virmors."
" Well, since you say you will trace
these footprint? from beginning to
end, w-* can commence here, for this
seems to, have been- the point of departure for two people. Sec." Burrows pointed to the, ground before
them. Mr. Barnes stepped down from
the piazza, being cartful not to destroy any of the impressions already
[ in the snow. lie- examined the footprints closely a minute, and then said:
"' As you say, here are two' tracks.
Which would you trace first'?"
" The   smaller,-"   answered   Burrows,
after a  little  consideration.
" Why ?"
" Mainly because it h.-ads to "the summer-house, which is what we intended
to examine wlvm we started nut,
Then, again, 1 noticed that these two
sets of footmarks are very different.
One is so large it must be that of a
man. and equally the other js so tiny
none but a woman's foot could have
made it." '   '.
- And you would follow the woman's
footsteps first, eh '.' What did you say
awhile age about net considering, sex ?
But 'shall 1' tell you' what you are
thinking '!',' ■        o
Burrows looked up eiKiuiringlv. and
Mr.  Barnes proi ceded,  impressively :
" Tom. you are making a groat mistake, one which 1 taimot too much
warn ypu to avoid-mow and all through
life. Vou have 'already, formed your
opinion of this cast-, and unconsciously
perhaps you are ready io fit to your
theory any evidence that turns up."
Burrows attempted to "disclaim any'
such intention, but Mr. Barnes continued :
" L don't ,blame you exactly. Vou
have youth and ambition as your excuse, Hiie.1 I am soirv to say I have
known older .and more experienced
men drop, into the same error. They
are so anxious tu discover a criminal—
a   "'iniiiial;  mark the words."
" But. really, you are mistaken. You
misjudge inc.      i "—
"1   mi   afraid   not.    I   don't   wish   to
stay your .zeal either, but in cases liku
this it is wisest to make haste slowly,
as  tho   proverb 'has   it.       Now   let  me
show you what jou-have done in your
own mind.   First, you find*a hole in a
pane   of   glass,   and   because   you   can
v. cave  enough  evidence   to snow   that
it is of recent origin you conclude that
the fatal shot pass.-d in that   way. The
fact is, all that etldence proves i.s that
a bullet passed through the glass last
night.      Anything  further is  merely a
matter of circumstantial possibility, :ir
perhaps in this ease 1 might go so far
as   to   say  probability.       Second,   you
Tind it  woman who is certainly acting
suspiciously.   . I don't say you actually accuse her,  but you incline to such
a" judgment.      Third,   these  footprints.
Having   in   your   theory   settled   that
the shot came from without and deeming it   possible  that   a  certain   woman
committed   the   crime,   you   would   ex-
arnine the woman's footsteps first, and
if possible prove thereby that tht woman   whom  vou  would  implicate  was
in  the position to tire through the window..      Thus     you   would     sti ciigthen
your theory."
Burrows seemed confused, as though
detected in a mean act. Jn truth, he
was to himself considering the charier?
of discovering the murderer , by his
own individual efforts, thus', if possible, forestalling the,man with whom
he was working. He was therefore
not a little astonished at the accuracy
with which his companion had read
his thoughts.
•' I am afraid you hit the nail on
the head," -said he, "and I am ashamed to be forced to confess it. But
tell me. which of. these trails do you
decide on tracing first "
" The same as you selected, but for
this- reason :—Notice that here ttie direction i.s toward the summer-bouse,
as you just now said, while on this
side the point of the toe shows that
lhat the owner of the foot returned
to her starting point. Unless wc find
another trail leading from the house
we have here prof conclusive that
this party has remained within doors."
" How so ? I don't see that."
"Yet it is simple. Notice that-the
steps away from the house are very
indistinct, while those coming toward
up are, on the contrary, clear and
sharply defined. The woman left this
spot whil.' it \va.s yet snowing, so the
snow tilled un the tracks somewhat.
Wherever she went, and that we shall
finrl out perhaps by following the
trail, she did not start for home, or,
to be accurate, she did not reach here
till the snow had ceased falling, as
the   clear marks- testify."
" Mr. Barnes.,vou are a genius. "Why,
all we have to do is to find out when
the snuw ceased to have the time of
this young woman's promenade."
"Why do you say >oung woman?
You are. smart/-!* than I if you can tell
hei* age* by the?e." pointing at the
Burrows seemed  a  little abashed  as
he   replied :— ,
"Surely,  since   you  proved   tint   tbe
covered to be divided into two j<aii.'. |
It seemed that the unknown person J
whose movements they were, tracing j
had entered the southern half. I
"This was a place of ir,t eting," said j
Mr. Barnes.  " for notice that still  another set  of steps leads here,   evidently a man's, judging from the size."
*' Then  you   think   the  woman   carne
here to meet some man ?"
"Yes. and, furthermore, the man ar-
iived   jir?t,   for   his   footprints.' 'or   at
least those leading in, are more obliterated   by   the  falling   snow   that   archers.      Similarly,    arguing    from   iiv
impressions which they left for our examination,   it   is    evident    that    they
separated here, for the woman plainly
walked off toward the  river,  whereas j
the man returned, as he had  entered, j
ihiough   the little  gate-  yonder."
'' Mr. Barnes, as there seem to be
so many sets of impressions, would it
not be well to make a drawing of tbe
grounds, and the general direction of
the tracks, for convenience as well as
11-ft? re nee V"
"A good suggestion. We. will act !
upon it at once. But wait here a mo- f

stronger  proof   In   the   fact   that   near
ihe gate J find an imprint from the foot
of the man, and across it i.s one of the
woman.       The   latter   is   plainer   than
ihe  first,   and   was  consequently   made
last.      By plainer 1 mean that the outline of the sole is easily traced acioss
the iarger footprint,  wliich  it  obliterates   where  the  two  cross.      There  is
another thing worth noting.     C>b?erve
that   this, woman   went    almost    in  a
straight -line   from   the   gate   into   the
summer-house,   ln departing she carae
out in a straight line toward the house
and then turned and went to the gate.
Just   where   this     turn    occurred    she
stopped  for, a   moment."
" Why, you seem to discern  a great
deal.      How do you deduce that ?"
" Very easily and almost certainly.
If one walks or runs, the footprints
must be single and about equidistant.
At the joint where 1 say that she stopped 1 find two imprints nearly side by
side. So she stopped, but why ?"
" Can you also tel! that '.'" , i

" Her maid, perhaps," said Mr.
Barnes, with some curtness Of all
things, he abjured (onch **i.*nH which
were too hastily and therefore illogi-
eally  drawn.
"Come," he continued; " we will follow this trail as far as thc summer-

o;\es fixed scrutinizingly on the snow.
Burrows   followed    in   silence,     feeling-
night's snow." Mr. Barnes hurried
over to the fence, where he found the
man awaiting him, having been attracted  by a call  from  Burrows.
" Good morning, friend.     Do you live
about here ?"
" Yes, jest over the bridge-."
"Then perhaps you can toll me
about what hour it' stopped snowing
last evening. It may s.cem a trifle
to stop yen about,- but I have a good
reason for inquiring, and hope you
won't mind my troubling you."
"No trouble 'tall, not the least in

" No," replied Mr. Barnes, not deeming it wise to tell of the death of Mr.
Lewis, last-tie be kept frb'm his investigation  bv further talk.
"You ain't-sot track of young Marvel yet, is you ?"
" Not -\et."
'" Well, good -.lay ter you. Hope ter
see you up ter the house by and by."
Jef Hanison walked off slowly, evidently reluctant to leave. As he passed on he mutteieti to himself :—-■' Guess
he's the detective they told about
down ter Lee Depot. Guess he's a cute
one. Ain't much of a hand at an-
swerin' cjuestions. A dogconed .sight
better at askin' 'em. Wonder why
he wants ter know when the snow
stopped. Them fellers kin make a
mighty sight out of durned little,
that's what I think." And ' so he
trudged on, still wondering at the
presence of the detectives and what
it all portended.
Mr. Barnes rejoined Burrows, and
thc-y followed each sot of footprints
thoroughly, the elder choosing his and
assigning the others to his companion. Then the two men returned to
the parlour, where Mr. Barnes tore
oft' half a sheet of paper from some
which lay on the centre table, and upon
it made a careful drawing. This
completed, thev discussed the situation.
" 'Well," began Burrows, " now that
you have finished your map of the
movements of the several parties who
were about these premises last night,
what   do  vou. leain   from   it ?"
"We 4'ound iour sets' of tracks,"
said Mr. Barnes. " besides - the dog's,
which latter may prove of value. Two
of these we think were made by women and two by men. For convenience 1 have numbered them' 1. 2, 3

" 1 gave you my drawings, and you
have     them.shown     quite   accurately.
No. -l,  made by a woman, commences,
as you know, at the steps of the dining-room piazza and leads to the summer-house.       From   there,   I   traced   it
over the river,  where I  found a boat-
landing.      Thence she returned   to'the
steps again.     No. 1, a man'*., commences   at  the  river-bank,  about  l'00   feet
south of the landing, and leads directly   to   the   steps.      Thence     it   follows
around the house and out  through the
main    gate.      Outside,    uniortunatelv,
our party this morning made so many
footprints  that I could  not  follow  No
" Did you cross the river, Tom ?" ■
" No,  but there is a boat there, anel
I  meant   to   suggest   that  we' co  over
i offer her.      1   think   we   will   find   evidence on the other side that 'mv  lady
crossed  last  night. ,   Whv  else  should
the have gone to the boat '."'
"Certainly;   we  will  goTat  once,  but
first   I   have   something  more   to   communicate.      Your theoryrwas that  the
shot was fired  from  without and  by a
woman, and you inclined  to the  belief
that you knew the* identity of that woman.      What,   then, -do   you   think   of
this ".'"'      Ho  handed   Burrows a   beautiful   silver   mounted   revolver,   in   tho
chambers   of  which   were   four   loaded
fartridges  and    one    empty  cartridge.
The   weapon   had  apparently   bev-r.   recently  ilrjd.      But rows looked   at   it  a
moment in  amazement  and   then  asked :—
" Where did  you  find  this ?"
" Outside  of   the  summer   house,   lying  in   the  snow,  just   where   1   claim
that   the   woman   stopped.      Now   you
see what I meant when  I said I could
guess whv she did so.      But vou  have
not seen all yet.     There is a name on
it.      Bead."
Burrows examined -the butt more attentively, and there .-.aw a piece- of
plate let into the stock, and neatly en-
praved therein the name, " Alice Marvel."
" Mr. Barnes, what do you make of
lhat ?"
" I think chat someone had that
pistol last night and fired it. From
other evidence, that I have I should
say it is a circumstantial probability
that Miss Marvel herself was here last
night  and   fired  her  pistol."
'This was a place of .meelhirj," said Mr.
rebuked and just a little resentful.
The tracks led in almost a direct line
to the summer-house, which they dis-
tatlon as 1 discovered them, 1 will
trace them in the order in which they
uer.*  made."
'• You .don't protend that you ct.n
do that?" i.oid Burrows, incredulously.
" I think so, and commence.' with
number -1. This was made by a woman. Unfortunately I can *ind no
distinct continuation of ar.v cf the
tracks outside tlu- c-atcs, for passing
teams have ohlitc-ialed them. We find
the first of number -1 at the little gate.
The woman went directly to the summer-house, and into the northern side
(M). That she was the efirliest on
the scene is evident, because the
tracks which she made going in are
almost entirely deslroyed by the snow
which fell since. J even got so far
as to venture the opinion that this
woman suspected a meeting, and came
to this snot as  an  eavesdropper."
" Now you are going rather fast, are
you not V asked Burrows, sarcastically.
" I will give ymj reasons for all my
deductions. The summer-house faces
the west, and the north-west wind last
night drifted considerable snow in
through the doors: enough, at any rate,
to show me that this woman sat quite
still in'a corner'till the time while she
was inside, -for (he mark of her foot
shows it. Had she moved about more
the snow would have been more
trampled. I even think she - sat ■ on
one foot, as many women do, for there
is but one imprint neai: the bench
where she must have sat, and that I.s
exaggerated out ot" all shape, as though
in her .impatience at. the slow (light, of
time sho had nervously kicked this one
foot about and into thc drifted snow."
" How much you make out of little
things,"   said   Burrows,   admiringly.
"She came probably to hear what
passed -between the man and woman In
the next compartment. Certainly she-
sat as close to the partition as possible.      She- stayed until after they  had
" This is the second time you have
used that phrase, ' circumstantial
probability.'      Won't (you  explain   it?"
" Certainly. We are considering a
case purelv on circumstantial evidence.
I have all my life made a specialty of
such, and I divide it into three grades,
according to the logical deduction
which it indicates. The first of these
I call a ' circumstantial possibility.'
For example, had the wound in this
case been differently located it misrht
have been a ' circumstantial possibility ' that It was a suicide. Second, we
have a ' circumstantial probability '
stK-h as I have here and will explain.
Third. the ' circumstantial proof'
where tho attendant facts leave abso-
of these pistols were  fired  at  the  dot;.
But   there     is   another     aspect   which
yot*  must not  neglect, and  that  is   the
' citcumstantiai   possibility'      Beim ni-
bor t.'iat both Lucas and this girl, according    to    the  squire's    story,     had
threatened the dead man.     They both
came   he.ro   armed,   an   unusual   thinj;
for a   woman at all' events.      Suppose
that   Lucas   saw   Lewis     through   thf
window   and shot  at  him.     The noise
may   have   attracted     the*     dog,     and
thus   that   contest   may     have   occurred   after   the   discharge   of   the   weapon, instead of before.     Further, sup-
pns,;   that,   seeing   thnt   her   lovr   had
left,   the  girl   had   also   tak<"*n   aim   at
the- same target.     One   shot  may have
made  the  hole in   the celling,  and   the
other may have reached the mark."
"Why,   this   becomes   moie   .-ouipii-
cated  every   miiuito.     What, about   tho!
pistol   in   Miss   Lewis'    room '.'"
"Ah!     That   Is   th-*   problems . But,
coi'.o;   we   will  go  across  the   tisvr."
Thereupon they proceeded to iho
beiai landing, marked L in the dia-
, gram, and crossed in a light row-
huat, which they found fastened at
that place. On thf-, other bank they
founel't. cominu.itii'i of the fuolprmf:*
inaikcd No. 1!. Those led to tbe base
of a gigantic maple (io. around which
a seat oi boards had been annnged.
Mr. Barnes exumined' the spe-l critically and  finally said : —
"I "juosh it was Mi.4» L^-wi*. after |
all. See, this' tree is covered with I

They followed the tlacks, hut they

the wood-and approached iho river.

Therefore     Lucas    enters     the     house
through   the   side  door,   and   from   tho
dining-room   has   access   to   the   girl's
bedroom, where she gives him a pistol;
thence   he   easily   cruels   the 'parlour.
Such  an  arrangement of events  would
readily account  for her destroying   ihe
evidence   that   her  weapon     had   been
used"      But don't  lay   too  much  stress
on all  this, for, as 1  said,  lt is purely
guesswork.      There is a Haw  in it,  too.
Why   did   Miss   Lewis   leave   her  coadjutor  on   the  wrong  side   of   the   river
when   they   separated,   and   thus   force
him   to  wade a  stream   of   water  on  a

" I understand. Now will you tell me
why you think It a circumstantial probability that Miss Maivil was hero and
fired   the pistol ?"
"From   the   facts   which   1   havo   already  given  you   I  should   say  it   was
"a   question   whether  she   was   here   or
whether   someone     else     had   her   pistol.      But  I  found  another pistol."
" The deuce,   you   did !"
" And this one," pioducing a duplicate of the one already shown, "also
has a name—Harry Lucas. Now follow my argument. Squire Olney

Mi*,s Marvel came to hear what the
other girl had to say to her lover, and
he   to  her."
"You are right," said Burrows, excitedly. " and is it not equally evident that the second woman Is Miss
Lewis? Kern-ember, the meeting was
in  her own  grounds."
"1 am more inclined to.think so than
at first, though I do not-commit my-
s*-.lf yet! But ■.there is another matter worth considering. J found'■Lucas' weapon in the snow at the point
where I claim be was attacked-by .the
dog. There 'is als-i a little blood
stain "— -
"Ah, I see, you argue* that he drew
his pistol and tired at the dog, and so
account   for the empty  shell   there* '!"
"Yes. But the blood stain is important. I think that came from a
wound made by the dog's teeth. As
the discoloration Is visible, although,
somewhat covered, 1 believe the snow
stopped shortly after. Thus 1 reckon
that he left about. 9 o'clock. The woman   left  after  Ihe snow   had   ceased."
"You think Lucas- shot at the flog
and dropped his pistol In the'scrimmage.      Du  you   think    Allsa    Marvel
look: there she Is, leaving the house*."
" Now, Tom, I 'will give you a chance
to do some work alone. That girl has
gone to mall her letter. The nearest
post-office- is in the vicinity of the
bridge and in a private house. See;
she Is going ln that direction. By lhe
road It is more than a mile. By the
river you can readily reach there first,
as it Is shorter. Row as hard as you
can and hide near the post-office. If
she enters, wait till she comes our and
then go ln and learn, the address on
the letter. You will find It in a cupboard in the hall, where thc mail I.s
kept. That is the main thing- which we
want,'     1   will   wait    for   you     at   the
house unless something should turn up
to make me change my plans."
Burrows was already in tIn*- boat, and
started, as soon as th>-se last words
were uttered. Mr. Barnes waited till
the girl was out of sight, and don returned quickly to the house. He went
stialght to Virginia's room and over
to the writing-cabinet Jn which sin*
had placed th- pistol. To obtain this
he meant to break tho lock if necessary. Greatly to his surpilse, he
found the key In the lock. IU- opened
the drawer, hut did not find therein
the object of his search. Looking
around tho room, he was startled to
find the pistol lying cm the bed. lit-
picked it up and noted that it was of
the same pattern as the other two
which he already had, and. like them,
bore a plate, with the owner's name,
iu  this instance,  "Virginia Lewis."
"Is my last guess correct," thought
Mr. Marnes, "and did that young girl
instiga-te and assist at a murder 7
Why, what i.s this 7 This weapon has
an empty cartridge in it." He examined it closely, and gently raised fhe
hammer. " By heaven, she has replaced a shell for the one whicli she
iemovod. I see it all. She wishes to
get the best of me In some: way. She;
knows that I picked up the,shell -which
sho had drawn, and there; would no
longer be anything,gained by reloa-dirig

However, I still have the brush with-

There is a dullness, drowsiness and  inaptitude for work on account of the  whole system being clogged up with impurities accumulated during the winter  months.  The liver is sluggish, the bowels inclined to be constipated, the blood impure,  and the entire organism is in need of a  thorough cleansing.  Of all '^Spring Medicines," Burdock  Blood Bitters is the best.  It stimulates the sluggish liver to activity, improves the appetite, acts on the  bowels and kidneys, purifies and enriches ���  the blood, removes all poisonous products, and imparts new life and vigor to  those who are weak and debilitated.  7 Big Mr. Wm. J.   Hepburn  writes  Boils, from Centralia, Ont.: " I can  sincerely say that Burdock Blood  Bitters is the best sp'ring medicine on the  market, Last spring my blood got out  of order, and I had seven or eight good  sjzed boils come out on my body, and the  one oij my leg was much larger than an  egg. I got a bottle,of Burdock Blood  Biilcr<*, and inside of six days, when only  half the bottle was taken, there wasn't  a boil to be seen. I have recommended  B.B.B. to different people in our village,  and all derived benefit from it.' 1 wish  B.B.B. every success,'as it is indeed a  great medicine for the blood."

This bridge.comparatively little known,  was constructed long ago, in China, in  the reign of the Emperor Keing Long.  It is situated near to Sangang and  the Yellow sea, and measures not less  than eight miles and a half.  The Bridge of Lions, as it is called, is  supported by 300 immense arches and  its foundation is 31 meters under water. On each pile of this -wonderful  bridge is a marble statue of a lion, three  times larger than life size.

Dr. Ward's Blood and Nerve Pills have  done me an incalculable amount of good.  1 think they are the best,- surest and  quickest acting cure for nervousness,  unhealthy action of the heart, insomnia or  sleeplessness, anemia or impoverished  blood, loss of appetite, general debility and  ill-health- For nine years, before I commenced taking Dr. Ward's Blood and  nerve Pills, my heart was weak and in an  unhealthy state. Its action was so much  impaired that I could not walk, across the  street without suffering great distress,  my heart fluttering- and beating so rapidly  that I could scarcely breathe, causing-  faiutness, loss of strength, and leaving*  my nerves all unstrung. My sleep was  very much disturbed, I had no appetite  and there was little strength or vitality in  my blood; I was always excessively  nervous.  I   have   now    taken   three   boxes   of  Dr.   Ward's Blood  and Nerve  Pills and  since taking them I have not been atyay  from my business an hour.    Before taking-  these pills it was a frequent occurrence  for me to be away from business.    As a  result of taking Dr. Ward's Pills my heart  is perfectly healthy and strong and gives  me no distress or trouble whatever.   They  removed all nerve trouble, made my nerves  strong and gave me healthy sleep.    These  pills also made my blood rich and strong-  and gave  mo  a  healthy  appetite.    Dr.  Ward's Pills have given tiic* perfect health,  restoring my  lost  strength, in   place of  continual    ill-health,    weakness,     heart  trouble  and   nervousness.    In   justice  I  cannot speak too highly of this wonderful  medicine.    Signed,   Miss   N.   Mill ward,  Walton St., Port Hope, Ont.
