At tne end of nait an hour tbe officer  returned.   All hope had gone torn his  face.    "It ls  useless!" he crUa  out.  "The guides refuse to proceed.    See!  They are going off with their countrymen!   We are lost without them.   I do.  not know what to do.   We cannot get-  to Ganlook.    I do not'know tha way,  and the danger ls great.   Ah, madam,  here they come!   Tbe Cossacks are going back."  As he spoke the surly mutineers were  riding slowly toward the coach. Every  man had his pistol on the high pommel  of the saddle.    Their faces wore an  Mis only thought was to get away.  ugly look.   As they passed the officer  one of them, pointing ahead of him  wlifi   his   sword,   shouted   savagely,  ������ "Balak!"  It was conclusive and convincing.  They were deserting her.  "Oh, oh, oh! The cowards!" sobbed  Beverly ln rage and despair. "I must  go on!. Is it possible that even such  men would leave"���  She was Interrupted by the voice of  the officer, who, raising his cap to her,  commanded at tbe same time the driver to turn his horses and follow the  escort to Balak.  ."What is that?" demanded Beverly  In alarm.  From fai off came tbe sound of firearms. A dozen shots were fired and  .reverberated down through th'e gloomy  pass ahead of the coach. ���        -t ���.  "They, are fighting somewhere in the  hills ln front of us," answered the now  frightened officer. Turning quickly, he  ' saw the deserting horsemen halt, listen  a minute and then spur tbeir horses.  He cried out sharply to the driver':  "Come, there! Turn round! We have  no time to lose!"  With a savuge grin, tbe hitherto  motionless driver hurled some insulting remark at the officer, who was already following his men, now in full  flight down the road, and, settling himself firmly on the seat, taking a fresh  grip of the reins, he yelled to bis  horses, at the same time lashing them  furiously with his whip,- and started  the coach ahead at a fearful pace. His  ' only thought was to get away as far  as possible from the Russian officer,  then deliberately desert the coach and  its occupants and take to the hills.  CHAPTER  IV.  mHOR'OUGHLY mystified by the  action of the driver and at  length terrified by the pace that  "T^"1 carried thein careening along  the narrow road, Beverly cried out to  him, her voice shrill with alarm. Aunt  Fanny wus crouching on the floor of  the coach between tlie scats, groaning  and" praying.  "Stop! Where are you going?" cried  Beverly, putting her head recklessly  through the window. It the man heard  her ho "gave no" evidence of the fact.  His face was set forward, and he was  guiding the horses with a firm, Un-  cjulverlug hand. Tho coach rattled  and bounded along the dangerous -way  hewn In the side of the mountain.. A  misstep or a false turn might easily  start the clumsy vehicle rolling down  the declivity on the right. The convict  was taking desperate chances and,  ���with a cool, calculating brain, prepared  to leap to the ground In case of accident und save himself, without "a  thought for the victims Inside.  "Stop! Turn around!" she cried ln a  frenzy. "We shall be killed. Are you  crazy?"  By this time thoy had struck a descent in the road and were rushing  along at breakneck speed Into oppressive shadows that bore the first imprints of night. Realizing at last that  her cries were falling upon purposely  deaf ears, Beverly Calhoun sank back  into the scat, weak and terror stricken.  It was.plaln to her that the horses-were  not running away, for the man had  been lashing them furiously. There  was but one conclusion���he was deliberately taking her farther into the  ' mountain fastnesses, his purpose  known only to himself. A hundred terrors presented themselves to her as  she lay huddled against the side of tbe  coach, her eyes closed tightly, her tender body tossed furiously about with  the sway of the vehicle. There was the  fundamental fear that she would be  dashed to death down the side of tbe  mountain, but apart from this her  quick brain was evolving all sorts of  possible endings���none short of absolute disaster. ���  Even as she prayed that something  might Intervene to check tbe mad rush  and to deliver her from the horrors of  the moment the raucous voice of the  driver was heard calling to his horses,  and the pace became slower. The awful rocking and the jolting grew less  severe, the clatter resolved itself Into a  broken  ramble,   and   then   the   coach  sroppea witn a mighty lurch.  Dragging herself from the corner,  poor Beverly Calhoun, no longer a disdainful heroine/ gazed plteously .out  into the shadows, expecting the murderous blade of the driver to meet her  as she did so. I'auloff had swung from  the-box of tbe coach and was peering  first into the woodland below and then  upon the rocks to the left. He wore the  expression of n tnnn trapped and seeking means of escape. Suddenly be darted behind the couch, almost brushing  against Beverly's hat as he passed the  window. She opened her lips to call  him, but even us she did so he took  to his heels and raced back over the  road they had traveled so precipitously.  Overcome by surprise nud dismay,  she only could watch the flight In silence. Less thuu a hundred feet from  where the coach was standing ho turn-'  ed to the right and was lost among the  rocks. Ahead, four horses, covered  with sweat, were panting and heaving  as ir in great distress after their mad  run. Aunt Fanny was still moaning  and praying by turns In tlie bottom of  tho carriage. Darkness was settling  down upon the pass, und objects a hundred yards away were swallowed by  the gloom. Then- was no sound save  the blowing of the tired animals and  the moaning, of the old negress. Beverly realized with a sinking heart that  they were alone aud helpless ln the  mountains, with night upon them..  ' She never knew where tlie strength  and courage came from, but she forced  open, the stubborn couch door and  scrambled to the ground, looking frantically in all directions for a single  sign of hope. In the most despairing  terror she had ever experienced she  started toward the lead horses, hoping  against hope that at least one of,her  men had remained faithful.  A man stepped quietly from the Inner  side of the road and advanced with" the  uncertain tread of one who Is overcome  by amazement. He was a stranger  and wore an odd, uncouth garb. The  falling light told her that he wus uot  one of her late protectors. She shrank  back with a faint cry of alarm, ready  to fly to the protecting arms of hopeless  Aunt Fanny if b-" uncertain legs could  carry her. At the same instant another  ragged stranger, theu two, three, four  or five, appeared ns if by magic, some  near her, others approaching from the  shadows.  "Who���who   in   heaven's   name   ar*  you?" she faltt'rod. The sound of her  uvu voice in a measure restored the  .-ouruge that had been paralyzed. Unconsciously this siim Bprlg of southern  valor threw buck her shoulders and  lifted her chin. If they were brigands  they should not find her a cringing  coward.   After all, she was a Calhoun.  The man she hud first observed stopped near tlie horses' beads and peered  intently at her from beneath a broad  and rakish hat. He was tall und appeared to be more respectably clad  than his fellows, although there was  uot oue who looked as though be possessed a complete outfit of wearing apparel.  "Poor wayfarers, may it please your  highness," replied the tail vagabond,  bowing low. To her surprise, he spoke  in very good English. His voice was  clear, and there was a tinge of polite  irony In the tones. "But all people are  alike in the mountains. The king and  the thief, the princess und the jade,  live in the common fold." And his  hat swung-so low that it touched the  ground.  "I am powerless.   I only Implore you  to take what valuables you may find  and "-let���us���procced^unharuied!" -she-  cried rapidly, eager to have it over..  "Pray, how cau your highness pro-'  ceed? You have no guide, no driver,  no escort," said the man mockingly.  Beverly looked at him appeallngly, utterly without words to reply. Tho  tears were welling to her eyes, and her  heart was throbbing like that of a captured bird. In after life she was able  to picture ln her mind's eye all the  details of that tableau In the mountain pass���tlie hopeless coach, the  steaming horses, the rakish bandit and  his picturesque men, the towering  crags and a mite of a girl facing the  end of everything. "~  "Your highness is said to be brave,  but even your wonderful courage can  afaujn v euo uau limb to opserve that  there were smiles on the faces of ali  the men within the circle of light.  "Rest assured, your highness," said  the leader, leaning upon his rifle barrel with careless grace, "we Intend nn  harm to you. Every man you meet iu  Graustark Is not a brigand, I trust,  for your sake. We are simple hunters,  and not what we may seem. It ls  fortunate that you have fallen' Into  honest hands. There Is some one in  the coach?" he asked, quickly alert. A  prolonged groan proved to Beverly that  Aunt Fanny had screwed up sufficient-  courage to look out of the window.  "My old servant," she half whispered. Then, as several of the men  started toward tbe door: "But she ls  old and wouldn't harm a fly.. Please,  please don't hurt her."  "Compose yourself; she is safe,"  said the leader. By this time it was  quite dark. At a word from him two  or three men lighted lanterns. The  picture was more weird than ever In  the fitful glow. "May I ask, your highness, how do you Intend to reach Edelweiss In your present condition? You  cannot manage those horses and, besides, you do uot know the way."  "Aren't you going to rob us?" demanded Beverly, hope springing to the  surface with a Joyful bound. The  stranger laughed heartily and shook  his head. - _r,  "Do we not look like honest men?"  be cried, with a wavo of his band toward his companions. Beverly looked  dubious. ''We live the good, clean life  of the wilderness. Outdoor life ls necessary for our health. We could not  live in the city," he went on, with grim  humor. For the first time Beverly noticed that he wore a huge black patch  over his left eye. held In place by a  cord. He appeared more formidable  than ever under the light of critical Inspection.  "I am very much relieved," said Beverly, who was not at all relieved. "But  why have you stopped us in this manner?" --  ."Stopped you?" cried the man with  the patch. "I Implore you to unsay  that, your highness. Your coach was  quito at a standstill before we knew of  Its presence. You do us a grave Injustice."  "It's very strange,", muttered Beverly, somewhat taken aback.  "Have you observed that lt Is quite  dark?" asked the leader, putting away  bis brief show of Indignation.  "Dear me; so lt Is!" cried sbe, now  able to think more clearly.  (To Be Continued.)  WOOD RAT TYPIFIES MAN.  K-a Ia Small, feat Hla Ac��alaltlT��mcaa  Ia Insatiable.  Too many Americans have the "wood  rat Instinct" The wood rat, tbe animal, is a native of southern Oregon,  but the wood rat typified in man is  not restricted to any small section of a  state or nation, but is well nigh universal.  The wood rat is small, no larger than  s common rat, but his ambition and  acquisitiveness are insatiable. .His  one insane desire seems to be to increase tbe size of his pile of sticks.  The neighboring field is placed under  tribute. First, all the nearby sticks  are gathered into the pile. Then, as  these are cleaned up, he goes farther  and farther away from home, and every twig is eagerly seized upon to increase the size of his pile of sticks.  The ' wood rat regards his pile of  sticks as a refuge in.time of trouble.  On the first sound of alarm he rushes  for the pile and crawls underneath. It  is here that be often finds his destruction, for <t summer fire sometimes  sweeps through the woods, and "the  wood rat's pile of sticks .makes a  veritable furnace. The larger the pile  the hotter tbe fire, and thus he has  piled up the means of bis own agony.  We do not need to carry the comparison any further. The lesson is  obvious, but still-many of us do not  appear to realize that we are like the  wood rat, worshiping a pile of sticks.  We marry a man* because of tbe size  of his pile of sticks and not from an  Innate attractiveness. We call this  .m&n-alsuccess-because-he-can-gather.  sticks faster than any of bis companions. We call tbis man "sharp" and  "shrewd" because, after a fellow  .worker has laboriously made a huge  pile, he steps in and ousts bis fellow  from the pile and appropriates all the  sticks for his own.  let us take warning from the wood  rat and the'summer fire���the larger  the pile of sticks the fiercer burns tbe  fire when the time of destruction finally arrives.���Montreal Star.

PROMINENT  ARTIST  AMD BILEANS  Says They Cured Him of Pain After  Food, Belching, Constipation and  Weakness ��� He Was Gradually  Losing Weight but has' Now Regained   It.  One of the most impressive cures  of indigestion and allied ailments  ever reported has just been effected  by Bileans in Toronto. The subject  is Mr. Arthur R. Hand, a prominent  teacher of painting on china, leather,  glass, etc., residing at 2 Woodgreen  Place, Toronto.  As a teacher, of painting, Mr. Hand  has made for himself a wide reputation, but his work was interfered  with considerably by ncute attacks  of digestive disorder.   He says:  "I suffered agonies for months previous to taking Bileans, resorted to  all kinds of remedies, but found only  temporary relief. The , indigestion  cume on quite suddenly, soon after  sating, and caused nie terrible pain.  There was a constant feeling of uncomfortable fullness in the stomach,  pains in the chest and under the  -shoulder blades and rifting and belching of gas.  I hnd constipation so badly tliut, no  medicines seemed to have any effect  on the bowels. 1 dieted a great deal,  but the slightest food brought the  same distress. After taking a few  Bileans I experienced ease, and corn-  tort after meals, so I purchased a  supply of this vegetable remedy and  left all other medicines alone. Bileans cured me. Now my food digests very nicely and my bowels act  .���juite naturally.  "i>efore I took Bileans my food did  aie no good, and I wus losing weight  ���apidly. In a few months, through  ;he use of this valuable remedy, my  -.veight increased from 125 ,to 165 lbs.  This increase, too, is not useless fat,  but sound, healthy flesh."  Not only for indigestion, ' but for  constipation, piles, general debility,  meiniii, female ailments, rheumatism,  blood impurities, liver and kidney  complaint, headache, dizziness, wind,  etc., Bileans are widely .recommended. They are purely herbal and do  not merely relieve these ailments���  they cure them permanently. , All  druggists sell Bileans at 50c a box,  or post free .from the Bilean Co., Toronto,'on receipt of price.

The steady' roll of wheels merged  with the varying notes of tiorns Id  motors- and the sound of talk and  laughter from, the sidewalks, and all  b' lded In a great humming symphony,  struck through with the rattling, syn"  copated clack-clack of hoofs upou the.  asphalt, like the staccatl of sharp  drums.

MOORE  Editor  Dauphin   Herald  The present editor of tbe Dauphin  Herald is one of the many progressive and ambitious young men who  have left the domain of Uncle "Sam  to seek fame and fortune in the  "Last West."

Mr. Moore wns born at- Monmouth,  Illinois, in 1867. He attended public  school till 14 years of age, and, after  this was variously engaged, working  first on the farm, leaving this to  follow the printers' trade for three  years, then in a. railroad office for a  similar length of time. He took up  editoral work in 1892 in Iowa, South  Dakota, and for a short time in St.  Paul, Minn. From this place he was  appointed to a clerkship in the census office at Washington, D.C, which  he filled for three year's up to 1903.  Mr. Moore had begun reading law in  1894,   and   after    leaving   the  census  ��� bureau, went into practice of law  in Iowa.' It was "while at Washing-,  ton he, took a post-graduate course" at  tha National University "of" Law " in  1902. He also received a degree in  Patent Law in 1903. He was "special  examiner" of all, the schedules-relating to "printing, publishing and periodicals" in the census office, and hnd  to supervise the a examination '_. and  editing" of the' schedules *6f ' over  twenty-four thousand copies���such as  preparing reports of amounts,invested in piiperty, machinery, wages  paid, efe. ���" \-   - f  In spite of the comfort of this position, the lure of tlie. west, called him  to Manitoba, in 1904, and he assumed charge of the Dauphin Herald in  October of that year.- In addition to  his editorial work Mr. Moore travels  north and west of Dauphin as-general agent for the " Sawyer-Massey  company.  Mrs.'Moore is then in charge as  rnanacer and local editor "for the  greater part of the time, nnd is to  be complimented on the fact that the  paper, which depends on her for a  great part of its success, is showing  superior care and typographical excellence in keeping with the1 progressive' town in which it is publshed.   ���  It is to be hoped that.Mr. and Mrs.  Moore will long be spared to follow  their excellent calling, and that they  will he plentifully endowed-with- this  world's goods as a just remuneration  ior their services in the cause of  their, town and country. ���  Science of Milking Cows Clean. -  It. is well known - tbat the average  milker gets less milk than he who  does a thorough job, that incomplete  milking means not only direct but Indirect 'loss,' not only -an Immediate  lessening of the fat yield, but tends  toward. drying the cow, writes Prof.  Hills, in Orange Judd Farmer. A Danish scientist ha3 recently developed a  special system of udder manipulation,  a-;sort of massage of the mammary  gland, as If were, which 'it is claimed  augments the' flow. The Hegelund  method, as lt ls called, Involves three  manipulations, each thrice repeated or  until'no more milk ls obtained. First,  the pressure' of the quarter on each  side against each other thrice repeated, followed by removal of the milk;  second, the pressure of the'glands to-"  gether on each-side, the fore quarter-  being first manipulated and then the"  hind quarters, followed by removal of  the milk; and third, the fore quarters  are pressed between hand and body,  the'hands holding'the teats loosely,  then .the hind quarters also, followed  by milking.  Trials of the scheme made at the  Wisconsin and New York stations afforded a dally average increase per  cow of a pound of milk and two ounces  of butter. The after milk was"very rich  In fat, testing above 10 per cent. This  after milking takes not to exceed five  minutes' time, often only two or three  minutes. The two ounces of butter may  be hel�� at a low estimate to be worth  2 cents. This would be a fair pay for  five minutes' work, 24 cents an hour  and the skim milk thrown in. Not only  is more milk and butter made, but the  secretion ls stimulated and the lactation period prolonget*1.. It may be remarked, however, that the differences  ln milk and butter yields between this  method ami careful stripping are not  great-Thla Danish method emphasizes  more perhaps than has hitherto been  done, the actual and potential losses  due to incomplete milking.

Curious One Still Extant In Gloucestershire, and Some1 Others Obtain  -   In  Yorkshire.   ,  In these days the use of agricultural  machinery has driven almost ail manual labor from, the'harvest field, and with  . K   have   disappeared   most   of   those  ; quaint customs which endeared the sea-  | son to the farmer as well as to his men.  One old-fashioned ''Gloucestershire  fanner, however, still keeps up as  many of the old customs' as he" can.  All his wheat, .-barley and oats are cut  by hand. Just as In the days of half  a century ago. The. first sheaf ln each  of his wheat fields he has 'always cut  himself, and the binding, or tying together, of it has always been done by  his wife.*"        ��� *   "* ���  -   .' . *      - ���  It was a quaint..Idea of .his own.  "When the reapers, to- the numlber of  three or fqur, are ready to begin, he  appears -In the field, arrned with a  bright sickle sacred to the occasion,  with which he solemnly proceeds , to  cut the first sheaf. Just as solemnly  his spouse, who accompanies "him,  takes up_ a handful of the newly-cut  ���Wheat, and with It ties the sheaf tog-ether.  Refreshments are then passed round  to the waiting reapers, and, bidding  them God-speed in their work, the  farmer and his better-half leave them  to it If they make a neat, even stubble they always receive an extra shilling or two for their pains.  Gleaners are rarely seen in the harvest fields now, Iput there is at least  one farm in Herefordshire where the  wives' 'and children of the ���harvesters ;;  turn out after the corn has been gathered In to 'pick" up the scattered ear?  that have, fallen. . ,'.'  .. -* ���  It ls surprising how much wheat a  family* of three or four Indastrious  children can -pick up ear by ear. It  must be -back-aching work, and cannot be very profitable, but in this Instance it is done "more for keeping alive  an old "custom than 'for anything else.  Every afternoon when there are any  gleaners at work the. farmer's wife  sends out tea and cake for ail, which  ls much appreciated by the workers.  When they have finished for the season the farmer-adds a bushel of -wheat  to each collection and, pays for the  grinding of the grain at'the flour, mill.  A,.Yo,rkshire.far-mer,,renorwned for his  genuine hospitality, insists on all his  ' helpers attending his harvest 6upper,  though as a rule they do not require  much pressing. The tables groan under  the load of good things provided, and  the guests are invited-to eat to their  hearts' content.  \ ,  Part of the meal Is the fruit of their  own Industry, for the bread on the tables Is always a special baking of loaves  made from the flour of the recently-cut  wheat. Of this a loaf Is given to each  /worker when he leaves for home.  Driffield, ln the 'ea"st riding of Yorkshire, la one of the few places ln the  country* were the' ancient' custom ot  ringing the harvest ''bell" Is still. observed. The ringing Is to notify' the  inhabitants of. the ^district that the  time has arrived for them to cut their  corn.  As soon as the grain has ripened, one  of the bells of the parish church rings  out at 5 o'clock ln the morning the  welcome intimation that reaping time  has come; the same bell, throughout  the harvest, signalizing- the fall of eventide by again tolling at 8 p. m. It is ar.  Interesting fact that for upwards of  fifty-years the' harvest, bell' of 'Drif,-  fleld^was,. rung by one "and the same  parish" clerk, a record which stands  almost unique. ���       . *        ���'.

There, for many years, It has -been  the practice for the mayor of the.borough to present a bottle of wine to the  person who first takes Into the market  a-sample of newly-threshc-d -wheat. -  f, Needless.to say, the competition for  the honor of first comer and the coveted bottle of wine has' always been  pretty keen, though the recipient lias  not always been the same.  A Lincolnshire landlord used to  make a somewhat similar present, but  ln this case the present went to that  one pf this tenants who was the first  to start" cutting his wheat.

The necessary precautions should  be taken ln the early .'part of a hog  cholera outbreak in" order to prevent  a general infection of the hogs in the  neighborhood.'The diseased herd or  herds-should be quarantined and all  possible ways in which the germs can  be distributed by people, dogs, stray  hogs, etc., carefully guarded against.  Two very Important factors i*a ' the  prevalence of hog cholera are, the' little interest taken by some swine  raisers in,the health of the herds and  the neglect of necessary precautions  for preventing the spread of infection  to neighboring herds. It is advisable,  then, to place hog cholera under state  and federal control and use police  sanitary measures ln the control of  this disease.  At tbe beginning of a hog cholera  outbreak, it is best to move the herd  Into new yards.' The yards- should  be large.enough to prevent crowding,  as In crowded quarters the* opportunity for infection is greater and additional care ls required -in' order to  keep the surroundings in a, sanitary  condition. Sufficient shelter ls necessary, for exposure to the hot rays qf  the sun, storms, chilling winds, etc.,  tends to lower the vitality oMhe sick  animals. The very sick hogs should  be removed from the herd and given  separate, yards, or destroyed. However, tbe necessity of using this latter  precaution depends on the number of  hogs that are sick and may not be  practical when a large per cent, of the  herd becomes diseased.  The tar disinfectant should be used  daily about the feed troughs, floors,  sleeping quarters, etc. No less than a  2 per cent water solution of tbe disinfectant should be used and every  week, if. the weather permits, the" hogs  should be dipped or sprayed with a 1  per cent, solution.  The hogs should'not'be fed on tbe  ground, or allowed to drink surface  water. A Bloppy diet of shorts, bran,  and corn or oat meal ls best for the  sick and exposed animals. The water  and slop must not be left ln the  troughs for the hogs to wallow ln,  and in order to lessen the opportunity  for infection through' the food, powdered copper sulphate should be, added to the slop and drinking water iu  the proportion of one ounce of. the  copper sulphate to every ten gallons  of water; copper sulphate may be dissolved in the slop.  The- dead hogs should be burned.  Tbis ls not .a difficult task, if the  bodies are" placed on top of a pile of  wood' that burns^ quickly "and makes  a hot fire... If disposed of by burying,  It-should be well done and the bodies  covered with lime.  At the end of the outbreak, the lots,  houses, etc., should be cleaned and  disinfected. All litter should be  burned an'd the yards wherever possible, plowed. If'the herd has been'  moved from old to new quarters, it ls,  of course, unnecessary to wait until  tbe end of the outbreak before giving  the old quarters a thorough cleaning  and disinfecting.���R.

In the case of the regulation  milk can, something like the following plan will be found of benefit. A  section of a convenient fence may be  pressed into service in this manner.  Nail a light board at top and bottom,  and, if many cans are to be cared for  daily, arrange the bottom boards on  both sides of the.posts. Inch holes are  bored in these boards at intervals of  about,-fifteen-' inches, depending upon  the size of the cans, the holes are  bored at an angle of about forty-five  degrees, and into each is. placed a  stick of tough wood about twenty inches long. On to this the can is placed,  the cover being placed in the ground  and the 'cross-pieces attached as  shown in the cut. A in the illustration represents the can cover in post-  Men, B the can, and 0 tbe boles in  the cross bar. With this arrangement  in operation there is little chance of  tlie cans getting soiled or of dust blow-  ing in them.  Whitewash the Hog House.  This is'the season of the year wheii  the hog quarters, should be put into  the best kind of shape by cleaning  them out thoroughly, whitewashing  them inside and out wherever tho  hegs touch them. Air slaked Mme  sprinkled around the floor of the pens,  especially in the corners and sides, is  an excellent method of treating the  floor. Troughs should bo'whitewashed  inside and out and air slaked lime  scattered freely around where the pigs  are in the habit of eating.
