CHAPTER VII.  THERE was a soft, warm, yellow glow to the world when  Beverly Calhoun next looked  1 upon lt. The sun from his  throne In the mountain tops wus smiling down upon the valley the night  hud ravaged while he was on the other  Bide of the earth. Tbe leaves of the  trees were a softer green, the white of  the rocks and the yellow of the road  ���were of a gentler tint. The brown  and green reeds were proudly erect  once more.  The stirring of the mountain men  bad awakened Aunt Fanny, and she in  turn called her mistress from the surprisingly peaceful slumber Into which  perfect health had sent her not so  many hours before. At the entrance  to the Improvised bedchamber stood  buckets of water from the spring.  "We have very thoughtful chambermaids," remarked Beverly, -while Aunt  Fanny was putting her hair Into presentable shape. "And an energetic  cook," she added as the odor of broiled meat came to her nostrils.  "Ah caln' see nothin' o' dat beastes,  Miss Beverly, an' Ah���Ah got mah suspicions," said Aunt Fanny, with sepulchral despair ln her voice.  "They've thrown the awful thing  Into tb�� river," concluded Beverly.  "Dey'a cookin' hit!" said Aunt Fanny  solemnly.  "Good heaven, no!"; cried Beverly.  "Go and see, this minute. I wouldn't  eat that catlike thing for the whole  ���world." Aunt Fanny came back a few  minutes later with the assurance that  they were roasting goat meat. The  skin of the midnight visitor was  stretched upon the ground not far  away.  "And how is he?" asked Beverly,  Jamming a hatpin through a helpless  bunch of violets.  "He's ve'y 'spectably skun, yo' highness."  "I don't mean the animal, stupid."  "Yo' mean 'at Misteh Goat Man?  He's settln' up an' chattin* as if "nothln'  happened. He says to me 'at wc staht  on ouah way Jes' as soon as yo' all eats  yo'  b'eakfus'.    De bosses Is hitched  "Has everybody else eaten? Am I  the only one that hasn't?" cried Beverly.  " 'Ceptln' me, yo' highness. Ah'm as  hungry as a poah man's dawg, an' "���'  "And he Is being kept from the hospital because I am a lazy, good for  nothing little��� Come on, Aunt Fanny;  we haven't a minute to spare. If he  looks very P, we do without breakfast." -     -  But Baldos was the most cheerful  ��� man ln the party.   He was sitting with  his back against a tree, his right arm  in a sling of woven reeds, his black  patch set upon the proper eye.  -'You will pardon me for not rising,"  be said cheerily, "but, your highness,  ���I am much too awkward this morning  to act as befitting a courtier ln the  ���presence of his sovereign. You have  slept well?"  "Too well, I fear. So well, ln fact,  that you have suffered for lt. Can't  we start at ouce?" She was debating  within herself whether It would be  quite good form to shake hands with  the reclining hero. In the glare of the  broad daylight he aud his followers  looked more ragged and famished than  before, but they also appeared more  picturesquely romantic.  "When you have eaten of our humble  fare, your highness���the last meal at  the Hawk and Raven."  "But I'm not a bit hungry."  ���-"It-Is-very-considerate-of-you,���but  equally unreasonable.   ' You must eat  before we start."  "I can't bear the thought of your suffering when we should be hurrying to  a hospital and competent surgeons."  He laughed gayly. "Oh, yon needn't  laugh. I know it hurts. You say we  cannot reach Ganlook before tomorrow? Well, we 'cannot stop here a  minute longer than wc��� Oh, thank  you!" A ragged servitor had placed a  rude bowl of meat and some fruit before her.  "Sit down here, your highness, and  prepare yourself for a long fast. We  may go until nightfall without food.  The game Is scarce, and we dare not  rwiture far into the hills."  arranged bridge of boxes and bags providing support for his long legs.  "We want to go to a hospital," Beverly had said to the driver very much  as she might have spoken had she been  in Washington. She was standing  bravely beside the fore wheel, her~face  flushed and eager. Baldos from his  serene position on the cushions watch-  t ed her with kludllug eyes.    The griz-  Beverly sat at his feet and daintily  began the operation of picking a bone  with her pretty fingers and teeth. "I  am sorry we have no knives and forks,"  he apologized.  "I don't mind," said she. "I wish  you would remove that black patch."  "Alas, I must resume the' hated disguise. A chance enemy might recognize me." "'  "Your���your clothes have been mended," she remarked, with a furtive  glance at his long legs. The trousers  had been rudely sewed up and no bandages were visible. "Are you���your  legs terribly hurt?"  "They are badly scratched; but not  seriously. The bandages are skillfully  placed," he added, seeing her look of  doubt.   '-'Ravone is a genius."  "Well, I'll hurry," she said, blushing deeply. Goat hunter though he  .was and she a princess, his eyes  gleamed with the Joy of her beauty,  and his heart thumped with a most  unruly admiration. "You were very,  very brave last night," she said at last,  and her rescuer smiled contentedly.  She was not long In finishing the  rude but wholesome meal and then  announced her readiness to be on the  way. With the authority of a genuine  princess she commanded him. to ride  inside the coach, gave incomprehensible directions to the driver and to the  escort and would listen to none of his  protestations. When the clumsy vehicle was again ln the highway and  bumping over the ridges of flint the  goat hunter was beside hla princess on  the rear seat, his feet upon the opposite, cushions near Aunt Fanny, a well  ".you', will pardon me for not rising."  zled driver grinned and shook his head  despairingly. '.'Oh, pshaw! You don't  understand, do you? Hospital���b-o-s-  p-i-'t-a-l," she spelt it.out for him, and  still he shook his head. Others in the  motley retinue were smiling broadly.  "Speak to him in your own language,  your highness, and he will be sure to,  understand," ventured the patient.  "1 am speaking lu my���I mean, I prefer to speak in English. Please tell  him to go to a hospital," she said confusedly. Baldos gave a few Jovial instructions', and then the raggedest  courtier of them all handed Beverly  into ,the carriage with a grace* that  amazed her.  "You are the most remarkable goat  hunters I have ever seen," she remarked in sincere.wonder.  "And you speak the most perfect  English I've ever heard," he replied.  "Oh, do you really think so? Viss  Grimes used to say I was hopeless.  You know I had a���a tutor,".she hastily explained. "Don't you-think* it  strange we've met no Axphain - soldiers?" she went on, changing the subject abruptly. _   ��� ..  "W.e nre not yet out of the woods,"  he said.  "That was a purely American aphorism," she cried, looking at him intently. "Where did you learn all your  English?"  "I had a tutor," he answered easily.  "You are a very odd' person," she  sighed. "I don't believe that you are  a goat hunter at all."  "If I were not a goat hunter I should  have starved long ago," he said; "Why  do you doubt me?"  "Simply because you treat me one  moment as if I were a princess and  the next as if I were a child." Humble  goat hunters do not forget their station iu life."  "I have much to learn of the deference due to queens," he said.  "That's Just like 'The Mikado" or  'Pinafore,'" she exclaimed. "I believe you are a comic opera brigand or  a pirate chieftain, after all."  "I am a lowly outcast," he smiled.  "Well, I've decided to take you into  Edel weiss~and"������ ~ *���= ~'-_  "Pardon me, your highness," he said  firmly. "That cannot be. I shall not  go to Edelweiss."  -  "But I command you"���  "It's very kind of you, but I cannot  enter a hospital���not even at Ganlook.  I may as well confess that I am a  hunted man and that the instructions  are to take me dead or alive."  "Impossible!" she gasped, involuntarily shrinking from him.  "I have wronged no man; yet I am  being hunted down as though I were  a beast," he said, his face turning haggard for the moment. "The hills of  Graustark, the plateaus of Axphain  and the valleys of Dawsbergen are  alive with men who are bent on ending my unhappy but inconvenient existence. It would be suicide for me to  enter any one of your towns or cities.  Even you could not protect me, I  fear."  "This sounds like a dream. Oh, dear  me, you don't look like a hardened  criminal," she' cried.  "I am the humble leader of the faithful band who will die with me when  the time comes. We are not criminals,  your highness. In return for' what  service I may have performed for you,  I implore you to question me no further. Let me be your slave up to the  walls of Ganlook, and then.you may  forget Baldos, the goat hunter."  "I never can forget you," she cried,  touching his injured arm gently. "Will  you forget the one that gave you this  wound?" .'.-..-.  '���'It is a very gentle wound, and I love  I It so that I pray lt may never heal."  She looked away suddenly.'  j     "Tell me onet thing." she said, a mist  , coming over her eyes.    "You say they  ( are hunting you to the death.   Then���  ' then your fault must be a grievous one.  Have, you���have you  killed a  man?"  she. added hastily.    He was silent for  a long time.  |     "I fear I have killed more than one  ,' man," he said In low tones.   Again she  shrank  Into the corner of the coach.  "History says that your father was a  , brave soldier and fought in many bat-  ! ties," he went on.  "Yes," she said, thinking of Major  j George Calhoun.  '    "He killed men then, perhaps, as I  have killed them." he said.    -  "Oh", my father'never killed a man!"  cried Beverly in devout horror.  "Yet Graustark reveres his mighty  prowess on the field of battle," said  he, half laconically.  "Oh," she murmured, remembering  that she was now the daughter of  Yetive's father. "I see. You are not  a���a���a mere murderer, then?"  "No. I have been a soldier. That ls  all."  "Thank heaven!" she murmured and  was no longer afraid of him. "Would  ���would a pardon be of any especial  benefit to you?" she asked, wondering  how far her influence might go with the  Princess Yetlve.  *  "It is beyond your power to help  me," he said gravely. She was silent,  but it was the silence of deep reflection. "Your highness left the castle  ten days ago," he said, dismissing himself as a subject for conversation.  "Have you kept In close communication with Edelweiss during that time?"  "I know nothing of what Is going on  there," she said quite truthfully. She  only knew that Rhe had sent a message to the Princess Yetlve apprising  her of. her arrival ln St. ..Petersburg  and of her intention to leave soon for  thejdrajistark .oanltaJ  'To Be Continued.)  THE TELEGRAPH.  Opposition  and  Rebuffs With  Which  Morse Had   to Contend.  The Morse telegraph invention lingered for years In the hands of Its  starving Inventor because capitalists  were indifferent or Incapable of appreciating its merits.

Trouble and Experme.  '.'��� A good filter is an expensive thing,  a poor one is of little or no account,  and almost any filter, unless'it is kept  clean, is more destructive of life and  health than the water, it filters. The  care of the filter can never be given  over to the care of irresponsible servants. It soon begins to smell foul,  and it is ultimately given .up with  disgust, as costing more-than it  comes to. -_'.'; ^  It Is within the power of every housekeeper to provide the family with  pure and sparkling water at the expense of but a few cents a year and  the smallest amount of attention every  day.-  In France the purifying of water In  this way is carried on to a considerable extent and with elaborate and. expensive mafchlnery. But with no machinery at all the housewife can produce practically the same result.  Take any vessel you may chance to  have handy. I have found a stone pot,  wblch you can buy any place for 10  cents, one that slopes down the sides  to a small base at the bottom, about  the best of anything. Be sure that  your vessel Is clean. Fill it nearly full  with water from the faucet.  The rule for mixing the precipitating  purifier which you are about to use Is  1 to 0,000. It is more than likely that  you will have no way to ascertain  these exact proportions, but do not let  that discourage you. A little experience is worth a good deal in this world  whether the work be done is compll  cated or simple. A few days' of trial In  using the separator will serve 1? guide  you all right.  For a starter, say that to a pitcher  holding a quart of water you take a  small amount of pulverized alum,  about what would go on the rounded  point of the blade of a pocketkulfe,  toss It into the water and mix it thoroughly. This you can do with a spoon,  an egg beater or a whip cream churn.-  The only thing is to see that the alum  Is thoroughly mixed with the water,  and it takes considerable stirring to do  this.  If you notice little moss islands in  the water, which same little islands do  not seem to want to go to the bottom  with" their companions, you will know  that you have not properly mixed the  alum with the water. As "water costs  nothing and the alum but the merest  trifle, you can throw the water away  and "set*: some more. But you need  not do this. All you have to do is to  stir it all up good again.  When the work is properly done the  water is crystal clear and has a live  taste. One thing that makes distilled  water so unpalatable is the absolutely  dead .taste it has.  Another great advantage of water  thus prepared is that it Is not subject  to auto-infectlon or self contamination,  which is such a great enemy to most  filtered waters. This water will remain  pure even though exposed to the air In  open vessels for thirty-six hours.  Although so small an amount of alum  would not hurt you If you were to  drink every particle of it, be not  alarmed. You do not get any' of the  alum when you drink, for the water  upon analysis Is found to he chemically  free from alum. The alum has settled  to the bottom In an insoluble compound with "the filth and impurities it  has carried with ft. -  In half an hour or less you will see  a deposit on the sides and bottom of  your.pan or pot'in which you have  "set" your water. If you will shake  the vessel a bit you will see this deposit go to the bottom. If you can  spare the time the water should stand  for about six hours before it Is decanted. Then place in clean bottles  on the ice.  In this way you drink a pure, cold,  sparkling water without the contamination that Is bound to come from  putting Ice in the drinking water unless the ice has been manufactured  from filtered water.���Ruth Everett in  New York World.

One is amazed at the dextrous manner in which the vender takes the unripe cocoanut In his hand and deftly  cuts a hole in the top, from which you  drink the milk. Then you return the  nut to the man, and with his machete  he cracks it Into three pieces and cuts  a spoon shaped silver from one side,  from which you eat the white, jellylike substance scraped from the inside.,  These are the unripe cocoanuts. When  ripe the jelly hardens into the hard  white substance to which we are accustomed.  Ijaclc Versus Labor.

Sir Walter Scott had bis share of the  usual curious experiences shortly after  being called to the bar. His first appearance as counsel in a criminal court  was at Jedburgh assizes iu 1703, when  he successfully defended a veteran  poacher. "You're a lucky scoundrel,"  Scott whispered to his client when the  verdict was given. "I'm just o'^your  mind," returned the latter, '"and I'll  send you "a maukin (i. e., a hare) the  morn, man.", Lockhart,- who narrates  the incident, omits to add whether the  maukin duly- reached Scott, but no  doubt it'did. On another occasion Scott  ���was less successful in his defense of a  housebreaker, but the culprit, grateful  for his counsel's exertions, gave him, iu  lieu of the orthodox fee, which he was  unable to' pay, this piece of advice, to  the value of which he (the housebreaker) could professionally attest: First,  never to have a large watchdog out of  doors,", but to keep a little yelping terrier within, and, secondly, to put-no  trust in nice, clever, gimcrack locks,  but to pin his faith to'a huge old heavy  one with a rusty key. Scott long remembered this incident, ��� aud thirty  years later, at a judges' dinner at Jedburgh, he recalled it in this impromptu  rhyme:  ,  Yelping terrier, rusty key,  Was Walter Scott's bestjeddart fee.  -Westminster Gazette.

MINAKER  Managing  Editor   of the   "Gladstone  Age"  Tliere is an' attraction about newspaper life that draws many men,  who, though they have never been actually connected with any publication, have had, the inclination since  their early years to wield a pen in  a position where the wielding would  see thu light of day,"giving the writer  an opportunity to advocate the principles of progress and enlightenment  which he feels within him. It goes  without saying .that any " man who  has an honest inclination for . the  newspaper life is a man of good prin-  , ciples; an honest man fears no ��� publicity, and is willing to stand up for  that which is good, therefore, wc say,  a man who has a standing desire to  enter the newspaper arena never docs  so with the idea of lowering the  newspaper ideals, but with the idea  of adding his individuality to the efforts of his brethren of the fourth  estate, to the end that- something may  be done for the general good of mankind.  Many men have lived their allotted  span with this desire always beckoning them, and yet lack the opportunity to gratify their ambition, while  others identify themselves with the  profession after their years would indicate approaching middle age, and  by their aptitude and energy, make it  a success from the start. Of this  number is the subject of our sketch,  Mr. Geo. P. Minaker, editor and  manager of the Gladstone. Age, who  has made a record in the business of  which he may feel supremely satisfied. Since taking the '-'Age" office in  -hand just a year ago, he has almost  doubled the business, and has also  conducted the paper in such a manner that it has made a secure place  fqr itself in the regard of its subscribers. Of its future success there is  not a shadow of doubt.  Mr. Minaker, was born in Cobourg,  Ontario, on December 26, 1862. He  was educated in the public schools  of that thriving manufacturing town,  and completed his school education  in the Collegiate Institute at the  same place; At the age of eighteen  he started in the mercantile business,  came west to Gladstone in 1898 and  was in the employ of the well known  firm of Galloway Bros, for about  seven years, leaving this to occupy"  the editorial chair. He has associated with him him in this venture Mr.  Yuill, now principal of the public  schools at Neepawa, a man whom we  hope to see drawn into active newspaper work at some time.  Mr. Minaker was married in 1884  to Miss Anna T. Lazier, of Belleville,  and the happy union has been blessed with live children, the oldest now  a young lady of twenty years.  He is secretary of the Board of  "Trade at Gladstone, and-fills the po-  --~sition--to~the"satisfaction-of-his-business associates, is a Freemason and  a Methodist, and withal is a man of  .such. modesty that it has been difficult to get him to divulge sufficient  information to produce this sketch,  which we only fear doesnot do him  full justice.  Mr. Minaker's efforts for 'the public weal are appreciated by his many  subscribers, and we hope he may enjoy health and long life to pursue his  * chosen occupation.  i��  norm ii-resHc.

These pills make new blood,  this new blood feeds and strengthens  'the nerves and frees them from pain..  The pain is banished to stay banished���the cure is complete. Mr.  Chas. B. Maclean, a prosperous farmer near Brockville, Ont., 4ias been  cured of a severe case of sciatica and  wishes other sufferers to hear of his  cure that they may benefit by his  experience.' He says: "For upwards of five years I was a periodical  sufferer from sciatica. Tn the morning while getting up I would be  seized with agonizing pains in my  hips. Sometimes these pains extend-,  ed down one leg, sometimes down  the other; often down both. The  pain was terrible. Imagine the agony  caused bv a red hot spike being  driven- through the liesh. That was  just my feelings .when the sciatica was  at its worst. -Often while carrying  water to the horses me pain became  so acute I had to drop the pail in  the middle of the yard. I followed  doctor's treatment but with slight  relief. I then tried rheumatic plas-  ers and liniments but tliSse did not  help me at all. Then I decided to  give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a trial".  At first they did not seem to help me  but as they had heen so highly recommended I persisted in the treatment and' gradually noticed a change  in my condition. The pain became  less severe, I fell-stronger and my  appetite improved. I think I used  th'e pills about four or five months  before I was completely cured, but  though that was two years ago I  have not since had the slightest return of sciatica. I think Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a marvellous  medicine and so doos my wile who  used them as a blood builder.

THE GREENHORN IN S"00<3  Why  the  Amateur  Who "Would   Get-  Rich-Quick  Would  Better  Reconsider   His   Determination.  Greenhorn purchasers oi mining  stocks often iind out that.the game  is not so simple'as it looks, and that  it is not all a mere matter of buying anything the*,, promoter recommends, and later-selling it out at a  profit.  The term "greenhorn" in this case  is used advisedly, as it is the ama-.  teur speculator who gets landed by  the wild-cat promoter in nine cases-  out of ten. The old hand doesn't buy  wild-cats, says The Toronto Star. He  can spot them a mile*.away, so to  speak, and pretty generally places-his  money in u producing mine for the  stock in, which there is a- more or  less assured  market..  Some of the devices which the promoters of these wild-cuts use to entrap the unwury are old, but still  apparently  effective.  One of the most effective devices  is that tho promoter who puts a certain number of shares on the market  at a low price, usually 25 cents a  share, with the announcement .that  the supply to be sold at this 'figure  is limited. He advertises lurgely, nnd  the amateur speculator, generally a  person of most modest circumstances,  makes haste to buy, and the promoter rukes in considerable cash. When  the silver (stream shows signs of drying up, the promoter has recourse to  his advertising campaign, and announces-in large type) the larger the  better, that on and after a certain  date, usually not far away, the price  of shares in the particular mine he  is booming will be advanced, say,  to fifty cents a share. This hurries  up ii lot of reluctant nibblers, whr  haste to get in before the price geti !  up. The duy comes,-und the advertise  ments are changed accordingly. Attention is drawn to the promise,  which is now fulfilled, and the.stock,  it is now announced, has advanced  to 50  cents  a share.  This, however, does .not mean that  the promoter will now pay 50 cents  a share for any stock his clients who  bought at 25 cents might wish to sell  back to him, and so double their  money. Oh, no. That would be too  easy. It only means that purchasers  from the promoter must pay-50 cents  a share, unless they can get a private  discount, while all the 25-cent crowd  can do is console themselves by- believing that their stock is worth double what they paid for it, even if they  can't- sell it. This game goes ou for  a while, and finally the advertising  campaign languishes. Clients write  and want to know when or where  they can take their profits..  Probably their letters aren't answered. If they come in person, they  may be told a dozen things. The mine  may have suddenly i petered out. The  demand for the stock has fallen off,  but will likely revive again shortly,  or any other reason may be advanced  which  will  sound plausible.  The real explanation is that the  promoter has sold all of that particular kind of paper that he can, that he  doesn't propose to buy. any back, that  he doesn't propose to keep on advertis-  doesn't propose to keep on advertising so as to create a market for other  people's stock," and that he probably  has a new mine to float, and the result is that thousands of people hold  on, with the hope deferred that mak-  eth the heart sick, to the worthless  paper which they have bought, but  which they have never been and never,- in all human probability, will be  able to sell.  Another successful device is for the  promoter, after -he has sold all the  stock he can, to announce that the  balance of the stock .and control of  the propei ty has been bought by an  American syndicate, who will develop  the property.   '  Time passes, and the syndicate  shows no signs of life. Perhaps it  never existed. Ask the promoter about  it, and he'll tell you that he has no  control over the syndicate, that perhaps they are short of money, or have  decided, after all, that it would cost  too much to develop. In any event,  the promoter's skirts are clear, and  the dupes���well, they are just dupes,  that's all.   There. are ,_dozens_of_.other .devices..  There is the device of publishing fictitious bids for a stock, where nobody  ever can locate the bidder.- It is an  old device of promoters to quote a  high price as being bid for their stock  while they -are on the quiet, and  through other brokers, dumping all  the stock they can get rid of at lower  prices.  That the game is profitable for the  promoters nobody doubts, and that  it ultimately . works injury to the  shares of reputable properties nobody  doubts either, while the misery and  the heartache that is caused in thousands of homes where the few dollars  that the wild-cat promoter has gobbled could be ill spared cannot be  estimated.  What is the remedy? What shall  the "greenhorn" do?  Let hin*. not speculate. Let him  not harbor the "get-rich-quick" microbe, which will only impoverish  him.

First, the men to relieve us would come clattering down,  and soon after we were free to go  back again to daylight and fresh  air. There was generally a shout of  gladness on sucli occasions, the firemen being quite as nappy as the inexperienced trimmers.

Tt would have paid to  tell him that they were better it  only to keep him from going at them  again.  "Oh, but my lame back!" 1 replied, glad to shift the doctor's attention in that direction. The worst  he could do to my back was to put  a plaster on it, I reasoned, and this  would almost "certainly relieve me of  one watch at least.  "Don't stoop so much," was all he  would recommend.
