Hugh Cameron, it is said, is  building up a splendid real estate  business in Spokane. He is now  one of the heaviest advertisers in  that line of business in that city.  Hugh is well aware of the value  of printers' ink.  Thos. Rader was down to Mor-  rissy Miuos this week looking  after the hotel in which he and  Chas. Farrell are interested.  There is to be a resumption of  work at the mines there, and  probably as many as 200 men will  be put to work.  According to a report from  Vancouver the iron mines near  Kitchener, which were sold ��� sev-.  eralyear3 ago by '-Chippy1' Hill  to tne C. P. R., are ta be opened  up and worked. L  ��� On a recent trip east Hill was  authorized .by members of the  members of the syndicate to Hy  out a comprehensive plan of development, involving; the expenditure of several million dollars.  It is understood that a large blast  furnace will be erected on  Kootenay lake noxt year. The  plans-will be. drawn .by . a . well  known Pittsburg expert.  "The iron veins on our properties have been traced and prospected for a distance of seven  miles," said Mr. Hill. "They are  ten in number, the widest having  a thickness of twenty-three feet.  We have all kinds of fluxes in  close proximity to iron doposils.  "In connection with the industry we purpose developing water  power on Elk and Goat rivers.  The deposits are within three  miles of the Canadian Pacific and  we have a down grade.

Foote as a tailor  Bhop.aud A. B. Stewart as a cigar  store, and the residence occupied  by D. A. Ayres.

Baldos would have knelt before his ruler  had not the worn, sickly young man  restrained him.  "Your hand. Captain Baldos," he  said.   "Most loyal of friends, you have  "Your hand, Captain Baldos."  won far more than the honor and love  I can bestow upon you. They tell me  you are a prisoner, a suspected traitor.  It shall be my duty and joy'to explain  your motives and your actions. Hhve  no fear. The hour will be "short and,  the fruit much the sweeter for the bitterness."  "Thunder!" muttered Harry Anguish.  "You don't intend to slap him into a  cell, do you, Gren?" Baldos overheard  the remark.  "I prefer that course,* sir, until it has  been clearly established that all I have  said to you is the truth. .Count Marlanx must be satisfied," said he.  "And, Baldos, is all well with her?"  asked the one we have known as Ravone.  . "She is being put to bed,", said Baldos, with a laugh so Jolly that Ravone's  .lean face was wreathed In a sympathetic smile. "I am ready, gentlemen."  He marched gallantly away between  the guards, followed by Dangloss and  Colonel Quinnox.  Naturally the Graustark leaders were  cautious, even skeptical. They awaited confirmation of the glorious news  with varying emotions. The shock produced by tlie appearance of Prince  Dantar. in tlie person of the ascetic  Ravoiie was almost stupefying. Even  Beverly, who knew the vaenhonn "Setter than all the others, bad not dreamed of Ravone as the fugitive prince.  Secretly che had .hoped as,long as she  ' could that Baldos' would prove, after  all, to be no other than Dantan. Thla  hope bad dwindled to nothing, however,  and she was quite prepared for the  revelation! She now saw that he was  Just what'he professed to be���a brave  but humble friend of the young sovereign, and sbe was happy, in the  knowledge that she1 loved him for what  he was and not for what he might  have been.  "He is my best friend," "said Ravone,  as they led.Baldos away. "I am called  Ravone, gentlemen^ and I am content  to be known by that name until better  fortune gives me the right to use another. You can hardly expect a thing  _ln"rags=t<rb���rcalIed"a^rlncer=There=i3*=  * much to be accomplished, much to be  forgiven, before there Is a Prince Dantan of Dawsbergen again."  "You are faint and .weak," said Lorry, suddenly perceiving his plight  "The hospitality of the castle is yours.  The promise we made a few days ago  holds good. Her highness will be proud  to receive you when you are ready to  come'to the throne, room. I am Grenfall Lorry. Come, sir; rest and refresh  yourself In our gladdened home. An  hour ago we were making ready to rush  Into battle, but your astonishing but  welcome news ls calculated to change  every plan we have made."  "Undoubtedly, sir, it will. Dawsbergen hardly will make a fight to release Gabriel. He ls safe In your dungeons. If they want him now they.  -* must come to your strongholds. They  will not do It, believe me," said Ravone  simply. '"Alas, I am faint and sore, as  you suspect. �� May I He down for an  hour or/two? In that time you will  have heard from your wardens, and my  story will be substantiated. Then I  shall be ready to accept your hospitality as It is proffered. Outside your city  gates my humble followers He starving. My, only prayer Is that you will  send them cheer and succor."  No time was lost in sending to the  gates for the strollers who had accomplished the marvel of the day. The  news of Gabriel's capture was kept  from the city's ��� Inhabitants until verification came from the proper sources,  but those* ln control of the affairs of  state were certain that Ravone's story  was true. All operations came to a  standstill. The movements of the army  were checked. Everything lay quiescent under the shock of this startling  > climax, y .   .  "Hang It," growled Anguish, with a  quizzical .grin as Ravone departed under the guidance of Count Halfont  himself, "this knocks me galley west.  I'd like to have'had a hand.ln.lt It  must have, been great How the devil  do you think that miserable little gang  of tramps pulled it off?"  "Harry," said Lorry disgustedly,  "they taught us a trick or two."  While the young princess was being  cared for by Yetlve's own maids ln one  of the daintiest bedchambers of the  castle Beverly was engaged ln writing  a brief but pointed letter to her Aunt  Josephine, who was still ln St. Petersburg. She had persistently refused to  vl8U.EdBlw��_u_ but bfla.KrlUeftmaQy  Imperative letters commanding her  niece to return to the Russian capital.  Beverly now was recalling her scattered wits hi tho effort to appease her  auut and her father at the same time.  Major Calhoun emphatically had ordered her to rejoin her aunt and start  for America at-ouce. Yesterday Beverly would have begun packing for  tlie trip homo. Now she was eager to  remain In Graustark indefinitely. She  was so'.thrilled by joy and excitement  that she scarcely could hold the pen.  "Father says the United States papers are full of awful war scares from '  the Balkans. Are we a part of the Balkans, Yetive?" she asked. "He says I'm  to come right off home. Says he'll not  pay a nickel qf ransom if the brigands  catch me, as they did Miss Stone and  that woman who had the baby. He  says mother is worried half to death.  I'm just going to cable blm that it's all'  off, because he says if war breaks out  he's going to send my brother Dan over  .here to get me. I'm having Aunt Josephine send him this cablegram from  St. Petersburg: 'They never fight in  Balkans. Just scare each other. Skip  ! headlines, father dear. Will be home  soon. Beverly.' How does that sound?  It will cost a lot, but he brought it  upon his own head. And we're not in  the Balkans, anyway. Aunt Joe will  Jiave a fit. Please call an A. D. T. boy,  princess. I want to send this message  to St Petersburg."  I When Candace entered the princess'  boudoir half an hour later she was far  from "being the timid youth who first  canle to the notice of the Graustark  cabinet She was now attired in one  of Beverly's gowns, and It was most  becoming to her. Her short, curly  brown hair was done up properly; her  pink and white complexion was as  clear as cream,- now that the dust of  the road was gone; her dark eyes were  glowing with the wonder and interest  of nineteen years, and she was, all in  all, a most enticing bit of femininity.  "You are much more of a princess  now than when I first saw you,"  smiled Yetive, drawing her down upon  the cushions of the window seat beside her.  "But she was such a pretty boy,"  protested Dagmar. "You don't know  how attractive you were In those"���  Candace blushed. "Oh, they were  awful, but they'were comfortable. One  has to wear trousers If one intends to  be a vagabond. 1 wore them for more  than a week."  "You shall tell us all. about It." said  Yetlve, holding the girl's hand in hers.  "It must have been a most interesting  week for you."  "Oh, there is not much to tell, your  highness," said Cnudnee, suddenly reticent and shy. "My stepbrother ��� oh,  bow I hate him!���hud condemned me to  uia because lie thought I was helping  Dantan. And I was helping him, too,  all that I could. Old Bappo, master of  the stables, who has loved me for a  hundred years, he says, helped me to  escape from the palace at night. They  were to have seized me the next morning.' Bappo has been master of the  stables for more than forty years.  Dear old Bappo! He procured the  boy's clothing for me, and his two sons  accompanied me to the hills, where I  soon found my brother and his men.  We saw your scouts and talked to  them a day or two after I became a  member of the band. Bappo's boys are .  with the band now. But my brother  Dantan shall tell you of that I was  so frightened I could not tell what was  igoingion.-Ii,bave^liYediin=the^openialr==  for a week, but I love it Dantan's  friends are all heroes. You will love  them. Yesterday old Franz brought a  message Into the castle grounds. It  told Captain Baldos of the plan to seize  Gabriel, who was in the hills near your  city. Didn't you know of that? Oh,  we knew it tw*o days ago! Baldos  knew it yesterday. He met us at 4  o'clock this morning-that Is, part of  us. I was sent on with. Franz so that  I should not see bloodshed if it came  to the worst We were near the city  gates, and Baldos came straight to us.  Isn't It funny that you never knew all.  these things? Then at daybreak Baldos insisted on bringing me here to  await the news from the pass. It was  safer, and, besides, he said he had another object in coming back at ouce."  Biverly flushed warmly.

"Baldos says there is  a very mean old man here who is tormenting the fairy princess���not the  real princess, you know. He camo  back to protect her, which was very  brave of him, I am sure. Where ls my  brother?' she asked, suddenly anxious.  "He is with friends. Don't be alarm-,  ed, dear," said Yetive.   :  .  "He is -.changing clothes, too? -He  needs clothes worse than I needed  these. Does he say positively that Gabriel has been captured?"  *"Yes. Did you not know of it?"  "I was sure it would happen. You  know I was not with them in the pass."  Yetive was reflecting, a soft smile in  her eyes.  . "I was thinking of the time when I  wore men's clothes," she said. "Unlike  yours, mine were most uncomfortable.  It was when I aided Mr. Lorry in escaping from the Tower. I wore a  guard's uniform and rode miles with  him in a dark carriage before he discovered the truth." She blushed at the  remembrance of that trying hour.  "And I wore boy's clothes at a girl's  party once���my brother Dan's," said  Beverly. "The hostess' brothers came  home unexpectedly, and I had to sit  behind a bookcase for an hour.

It was with difficulty  that the listeners" suppressied their  smiles. ���',  "Better than any one else. He ls our  idol. Oh, your'highness, ifwhat he  says is true that old mail must be a  fiend. Baldos a spy! Why, he has not  slept day or night for fear that we  would not capture Gabriel so that he  might be cleared of the charge without  appealing to���to my brother. He has  always been loyal to you," the glrf  said with eager eloquence.  "I know, dear, and I have known ah  a-'ong. He will be honorably acquitted.  Count Marlanx was overzealous.

I cannot condone that one amazing  piece of wickedness on his part"  "You, then, are the girl Baldos talks  so much about?" cried,Candace eagerly: "You are Miss Calhoun, the fairy  princess? I am so glad to know you."  The young princess clasped Beverly's  band and looked Into her eyes with admiration'and approval. Beverly could  have crushed her in her arms.  . The sounds of shouting came up to  the windows from below. Outsider  men were rushing to and fro, and there  were signs of mighty demonstrations  at the gates.  "The people have heard of the cap-'  ture," said Candace, as calmly as  though she'were asking one to have a  cup of tea. '  There was a pounding at the boudoir  door. It flew open unceremoniously  and in rushed Lorry, . followed' by  Anguish. In the hallway beyond a  group of noblemen conversed excitedly  with the women of the castle.  "The report from the dungeons, Yetlve," cried Lorry joyously. "The  warden says that Gabriel ls in his cell  again!   Here's to Prince Dantan!"  Ravone was standing In the door.  Candace ran over and leaped into his  arms.  (To Be Continued)  " DIRTY   MONEY.    "  AUGUST.  A  Large Part of. Our  Paper Currency  Is,Not git to Handle.   ' t  Recent cases of Mood poisoning from  handling dirty money furnish a striking Illustration ol'.the unsatisfactory  condition of the paper currency of the  country in' this important resp'ect of  cleanliness. It has often been asserted  that the dirty notes -which pass from  hand to hand in this community serve  as vehicles for the disseuiiuation of  disease, but It raaj be doubted whether these reiterated statements have  carried much conviction with them.  The average man does not exactly  disbelieve them, but he has an' idea'  that thoy are exaggerated, tbat there  is no real danger from the source mentioned, aud he is generally too'glad to  get money of any kind to be very  particular about its physical quality'  He thinks' that tliere is not much risk  of his contracting any disease from all  the money he has occasion to handle,  and. anyhow, he is perfectly willing to  take his chances. �� ...

In otlier large cities where,  there are numerous banks the conditions are not "so bad- because tlie banks  refrain as far ns' they can from giving  dirty notes to their customers, but in  the country, where greenbacks .and  treasury notes are-passed around until  they will scarcely hold together, n state  of things exists in this-, connection  which is distinctly injurious and discreditable. -..   ��� ������    .  ;  It has been proposed as a remedy  that Ihe use.,of'paper money in denominations lower than twenty dollars,  be discontinued and that gold, and silver coin be exclusively employed in-retail transactions.. That this would not  be Impracticable Is proved by European experience. "��� Tliere is practically  no paper money In England.

A memorandum, edited by Lord Selborne, and  issued with his v ithority, points-out  the necessity of establishing one Parliament vto represent the whole of  South Africa, ar'l protect British  ports and interest i, especially in view  of tlie position of ~>elagoa Bay, which,  under the Portug icse, "is reaping in-  ordinute railway and other advantages. The memoi ind urn asserts that  the state of nffa 3 is such that the  political-positioii -f the country ns a  whole must withii the*present year be  deliberately discussed between all the  P-ritish South African Governments.  The memorandum conveys the impression that union is necessitated by  the position of Delagoa Bay, which is  reaping inordinate railway and otlidr  advantages ruinously affecting the  British ports, and the idea in  that a consolidation of the railway  and other. British interests terminating this state of things, "though with  scrupulous fairness to our ally Portugal, becomes increasingly pressing.  General Botha and his Government  point out that the memorandum was  drawn up .before they took office.  While cordially approving of federation, they dissent from what is said  in the document regarding Delagoa  Bay. declaring that their attitude towards the Portuguese will always be  sincerely friendly. Lord Selborne  strongly deprecates retarding federation. Tlie .Colonies",-it is pointed out,  possess lull self-government, but  South Africa as n whole docs not possess it, because there are constant  inter-Colonial divergences which necessitate the intervention of tlie High  Commissioner, who is controlled by  the Imperial Government.' Consequently, ��� in extreme cases, the ultimate authority in the strictly internal  affairs of South Africa is the Imperial  Parliament. South Africa, the memorandum adds, can only be wisely and  successfully governed by a Government responsible to "a Parliament representing the whole of South Africa.  The four self-governing Colonies of  *3outh Africa, now that Orangia has  Seen "granted a constitution, are the  Cape of Good Hope, Natal, the Transvaal, .and the Orange River Colony.  The present constitution of the Cape  Colony dates from 1872. The Parliament consists of a Legislative Council of twenty-six members, elected for  seven years, and a-House of Assembly  of 107 members elected for five years.  Natal attained responsible Government in 1893. It has a 'Legislative  Council of thirteen members, who  hold their seats for ten years, and a  Legislative Assembly of forty-three  members, elected for four years. The  Transvaal, under its new constitution  granted ..last, year, has a Legislative  Council of- fifteen members, and a  Legislative Assembly of ^ sixty-nine  members. The letters patent, recently  issued, providing for the,- establishment' of responsible Government in  the Otnnge River Colony vest the  legislative power in . a Legislative  Council' of eleven members and a  Legislative   Assembly  of  thirty-eight.

Henry Wharton Griffith and R.

A challenge to a duel was sent by Drake, but  Griffith declared that-the challenger  was beneath his notice and that he  would not demean himself socially by  consenting to meet him.  Then followed u long aud wordy warfare In which each posted the other as  a coward. Lieutenant Duryee of the  'United States navy was called to make  an effort to settle the dispute, and it  was theu that Miller, tho lawyer, and  Hunter, the midshipman, became Involved iu the quarrel. In the heated  discussion Hunter accused Miller of  publishing a confidential letter, and a  challenge was at ouce scut by the midshipman and accepted by the attorney.  It was"decided that the duel should  be fought early on Sunday morning of  March 21, but It was nearly 10 o'clock  before carriages containing the principals, seconds und surgeons left a house  that stood on Chestnut street above  SIxMi.

In a few minutes  he died, while pale and anxious faces  watched tlie convulsive breathing of  the dying man.  "Gentlemen," said Ilunter, "I had no  enmity against this man. I never  heard of him until two days,ago. Let  those \vhoso quarrel embroiled him be  responsible for bis death."  After a" hurried consultation it was'  deed en that the midshipman should  leave the state at once, and-he was  driven rapidly to New Castle, Del.,  where he boarded u boat for New York  aud Tejolued the navy.

A Story of Samuel- Warren and  Mat-  ' thew Davenport Hill.  ' Sam Warren, the author of "Ten  Thousand a Year." has been the subject of many anecdotes, none of them  better than one which I first heard related about him by his friend. Matthew  Davenport Hill.  Looking In oue. day - ai Warren's'  chambers. Hill noticed that he seemed  a little troubled. "It is." said tbe lawyer-novelist, "most unfortunate. "1  ought to bave dined tonight with the  lord chancellor, but Mrs. Warren Is  about to'present me with another olive  branch. How can I leave her? 1 hope  his lordship won't be annoyed at my  putting him off." "Oh," returned Hill,  "don't make yourself uneasy. I nm  one of the guests. I know-him so well  I can put It all right for you." With  these words the visitor prepared to  leave the room.  At first profusely grateful, Warren  presently seemed a little perplexed nnd  said: "By the bye. after all. I won'i  trouble you to say 'anything about me  to.the chancellor. Between ourselves.

You leave your card at the door of  the person to whom you desire to present yourself, and there it is taken In  charge by that peculiarly French functionary, the concierge, says Professor  Barrett Wendell ln Scrlbner's. At  least In Paris, the greater part of  French people live In lnrge houses containing a number of apartments with  a common eutrance and staircase.  Close to the entrance door, on the level  of the street, are some stuffy little  rooms Inhabited by the concierge,-or  porter,' with his family. Their duty,  among other things, is to keep strict  watch on .whoever goes In or but, and  at least one of them, often the porter's  wife or half grown daughter. Is always  at hand. -��� *.  The chief peculiarity of their temperament seems" to be iusatiablej appetite.  At whatever hour of day of* evening  you cull on a.concierge you nre sure to  find somebody eating or just risen  from table, and the atmosphere Inhabited by this bustling personage seems  immortally laden with the fumes of  something recently - boiled.        .  No matter whether, you call on-a  friend who lives In some unpretentious  oat of the way place or on one who  Inhabits something like a palace, the  concierge is always about the same  You can detect little difference between those in charge of Important  doors nnd of Insignificant They nre  -as like as house Dies. Of course there  are private houses in Paris, with regular domestic servants' such ns you  would find anywhere, but tbese. grand  or simple, are so unusual that you remember the concierge ns everywhere  standing between you and further human Intercourse. *"  In response to your card, which the  concierge duly sees delivered, comes n  card, often with a note. In return. If.  as is generally the case, this acknowledgment of your existence contains an  Intimation of when your French acquaintance may be found at home, el  ther habitual or for your special benefit, you make your second visit at this  appointed time und thus enter Into rent  personal relations.  Otherwise, your Intercourse has limit-  ���ed itself to a polite exchange of cards.  Generally speaking, you never expect  or attempt to seo French people socially  except when they have asked you to  one of their regular days of reception,  or have made a definite appointment.  To call on a person nt any other time-  to do more than leave your card with  the concierge���would be an Intrusive  prctenso to intimacy.  Lying.  It was said of Dr. Johnson that he  always talked as though he were'taking nn oath. He detested the habit of  lying or prevaricating ln the slightest degree and would not allow his  servants to say he was not at home If  he was. "A servant's strict regard  _forJ;heJtr_uth,"_saId he, "must be weak-  ened by such a practice..- If I accustom my servant to tell a lie for me,  have I not reason. to apprehend that  he will tell It for himself?"
