The searchers  worked all day Thursday without  success, and were on the scene  again bright; and early Friday.  Along in the afternoon E. G.  Gwynne and Eddie Desaulnier,  who were in one boat, ��� pulled up  their drag hooks and found they  had hooked onto the carpet that  had fallen out of the canoe when  the drowning occurred. It was  only about ten minutes afterwards, and in the same vicinity,  that the body was brought to  the surface by Alex Cameron,  John Taylor and Arthur McKay,  who were dragging from another  boat. The body was brought to  town, and W. R. Beatty, the  Cranbrook undertaker, came up  the following, day and prepared it  for burial. Saturday at 2 o'clock  a service was held at the Methodist church, 'and was conducted  by Rev. S. Cook. -The church was  well filled with friends of the deceased. From the church the remains were escorted to the station and taken to Cranbrook for  burial.

N tho city of New York  there was practicing at  that time a lawyer by  the name of Bansemer.  .His olliee, ou the topmost floor of a dingy  building in the lower section of the  city, was not inviting. On leaving tha  elevator one wound about through narrow halls and finally peered with more  or less uncertainty and misgiving at  the half obliterated sign which said  that .lames Bansetnei- held forth on the  other side of the glass panel.  It wns-whispered in certain circles  and openly avowed in others that Ban-  seiner's business was uot the Kind  which ' elevates the law. in plain  words, his methods were construed to  debase the good and honest statutes  of the land. Once inside the door of  his office��� and"sTheavy spring always  closed it behind one���there was quid"  evidence that the lawyer lamentably  disregarded, the virtues of prosperity,  no matter how they bad been courted'  and won. Although his transactions  in and out of tbe courts of that great  city bore tlie mark of dishonor, be  was known to have made money dur-  ing tbe ten years of his career as a  member of tbe bar.  Possibly he kept his* office shabby  and unclean that it might be in touch  with the transactions which bad their  morbid birth inside the grimy walls.  There was no spot or corner in the  two small rooms that comprised his  "chambers" to which he could point  ���with pride. The floors were littered  ���with papers; thu wails were greasy  and bedecked with malodorous notations, documents and pictures; the windows were smoky-and useless; the  clerk's desk bore every suggestion of  dissoluteness.  But little less appalling to one's aesthetic sense was tbe clerk himself.  Squatting behind his wretched desk,  Eiias Droom peered across the. litter  of papers and books with shaky but  polite eyes, almost as Inviting as the  .spider who ,with wily but insidious  decorum draws the guileless into bis  web.  If one passed muster in the estimation of the incomprehensible Droom he  was permitted in due season to pass  through a second oppressive looking  door and Into the private oflice of Mr.  James Bansemer, attorney at law and  solicitor. It may be remarked at this  early stage tbat, no matter how long  or how well one may have known  Droom, one seldom lingered to engage  In commonplaces "with him. His was  tho most repellent personality Imaginable. When* he smiled one was conscious of a shock to the nervous system; when he so far forgot himself aa  to laugh aloud there was a distinct  illustration of the word "crunching;"  when he spoke one was almost sorry  that he>ad ears.  Bansemer- knew^ but- little - of- this  freakish Individual's history; no one  else had the temerity to Inquire into  his past or to separate lt from bis future,' for that matter. Once Bansemer  Ironically asked blm why he had never  married. It,was a full minute before  the other lifted bis eyes from the sheet  of legal cap. and by that time ha was  in full control of hla passion.  "Look at me! Would any woman  marry a thing like me?"  This was said with such terrible earnestness that Bansemer took care never to broach the subject again. He  saw that Droom's heart was not all  steel and brass.  Droom was middle aged. His lank  b<-*djr_anji cadaverous face were con  ���trncted on principles not generally "accredited to nature as it applies to men.  When erect his body swayed as if it  were a stubborn reed determined to  maintain Its dignity in the face of the  wind. He did not walk; he glided.  His long, square chin, rarely clean  shaven, protruded far beyond its natural orbit Iudeed, the attitude of the  chin gave one an insight to the greedy-.  character of the man. At first glance  one felt that Droom was reaching forth  with hl3 lower jaw to give greeting  with his teeth Instead of his hand.  His neck was long and thin, and his  turndown collar was at least two sizes  too large. The nose was hooked and  of abnormal length, the tip coming  down over the short upper lip and  broad mouth. His eyes were light blue  and so Intense that he was never  known to blink the lashes.' Topping  them were deep, wavering black eyebrows that met above the nose, forming an ominous, cloudy line across the  base of his thin, high forehead. The  crown of his bead, covered by lonfi.  scant strands or marl- hair, was of  the type known as' "retreating aud  pointed." The forehead ran upward  and back from the brows almost to a  point, and down from the pinnacle  hung the veil of hair, just as if he-had  draped lt there with the same care he  might have used In placing his best  hat upon a peg. His back was stooped,  nnd the high, narrow shoulders were  hunched forward eagerly. Long arms  and ridiculously thin legs, with big  hands and feet, tell the story of his  extremities. .When he was on his feet  Droom was more than six feet tall; as  he sat In the low backed office chair he  looked to be less than Ave feet over all.  The men had been classmates In an  obscure law school down In Pennsyl  vania, nnnseiuer was good looking,'  forceful and young, while. Droom was  distinctly Ills opposite. Where he came  from no one knew nud no one cared.  He was p:ist thirty-five when he entered the school, at. least twelve years  the senior of P.nnseiner.  His appearance and attire proclaimed  him to be from the country, but his  sophistry, his knowledge of the world  and his wonderful iusight into human  nature contradicted his looks Immeasurably. A conflict or two convinced  his fellow students that be was more  than a match for them in stealth and  cunning if not in dress and deportment  Ellas Droom bad not succeeded as a  lawyer. He repelled people, growing  more and more bitter aj-ainst the world  as his struggles became harder. What  little money he had accumulated���heaven alone knew how he came by it-  dwindled to nothing, and he was in actual squalor when 'later Bansemer  found him in an attic In Baltimore.  Even as be engaged the half starved  wretch to become Ills confidential 'clerk  the lawyer shuddered and almost re  pen ted of his action.  But Eiias Droom was worth his  weight in gold to James Bansemer  from that day forth. Ills employer's  sole aim in life was to get rich and  thereby to achieve power. His ambition was laudable If one accepts the  creed of morals, but his methods were  not so praiseworthy. After a year or.  two of starvation struggles to get oo  with the legitimate he packed up his  scruples and laid them away���temporarily, he said. He resorted to sharp  practice, knavery and all the forms of  legal blackmail, lt was not long before his bank account began to swell.  Ills business thrived. He was so clever that not oue of his shady proceedings reacted. It Is safe to venture that  OU per cent of the people who were  bilked through'his manipulations promised iu the heat of virtuous wrath to  expose him, but lie had learned to  smile, in security. He knew that exposure for him meant humiliation for  the instigator, and lie continued to rest  easy while he worked hard. V  "You're getting rich at this sort of  thing."observed Droom one day after  the lawyer had closed a particularly  nauseous deal to his own satisfaction,  "but what are you going to do when,  the tide turns?" v 77  Bansemer, irritated on perceiving that  the other was engaged in his exasperating- habit of rubbing his hands together, did not answer, but merely  thundered out, "Will you stop that?"  There was a faint suggestion of the  possibility of a transition of the hands  to claws as Droom abruptly desisted,  but smilingly went on:  "Some day the other shark will get  the better of you, and you'll have nothing to fall back on. You've been building on mighty slim foundations. There  isn't a sign of support if the worst  comes to the worst." he chuckled.  before Bansemer put on his light topcoat to leave the office for the day  Droom tupped on the glass panel ot  the door to bis private office. Usually  the clerk communicated with him by  signal, a floor button by which he  could acquaint his muster With mucti.  that he ought to know, and the visitor  in the outer office would be none thu  wiser. Tbe occasions were rare when  he went so far as to tap on the door  Bansemer was puzzled and stealthily  listened for sounds from the other  side. Suddenly there came to his ears  the voices of women, mingled with  Droom's suppressed but always raucous tones.  Bansemer opened the door. Looking  Into the outer office, he saw Droom  swaying before two women, rubbln-;  his hands and smiling. One of the  women carried a small babe In her  arms. Neither she nor her companion  seemed quite at ease in the presence  of the lank guardian of the outer oflice.  (To be Continued.)  KHYBER CLOSED.  In-  Trouble  With   Border Tribesmen  terrupls Traffic With Afghanistan.  The Khyber Pass has been closed to  caravans. This step is due to the  aggressive attitude o�� the Khassadara,  or Militia, on the Afghan border  (says tlie Civil and Military Gazette.)  The Cabul authorities still appear to  be powerless ,to restrain the impetuous spirits of the borderland, and discipline in Afghanistan generally is  not what it was in the days of Abdurrahman. The Khyber Pass is the  chief artery for commerce! between  India and Afghanistan, and its  clos'ure for any length of time would  paralyze trade between the two countries. The unrest among the Afghan  tribes bordering on the northwest  frontier of India has for more than  a year caused anxiety to the Indian  Government. Frequent raids into  British territory have been made, and  in the Mohmand expedition in April  last year thousands of .Afghans  fought with the Mohmands against  British troops.  It is known that. for some time  past rifles and ammunition have been  pouring into Afghanistan via the  Persian Gulf and Persian territory.  The hostility shown to the Indian  Government is only one phase of an  attitude of violent opposition shown  by the more conservative Afghans  against the AmeeT, Habibullah Khan,  who is regarded as a daring innova-:  tor because he has' developed education in Afghanistan and is trying to  improve the trade roads into India,  witli a view to increasing ��� the imports and exports of Afghanistan.  Last, month, when the Ameer was at  Jellalabad, near which he proposes  to build a new city, an attempt to  murder him, his son Inayat TJllah  Khan, and his brother, Sardar Nas-  rullah Khan, was discovered. The  leader of the conspiracy was encouraged by Bibi Halima, a wife of the  late Ameer, Abdurrahman, who hoped  to place her son, Sardar TJmar Khan,  upon the .throne. The ringleaders,  were. executed at Cabul and Jellalabad, many of them being blown from  guns.

James Bryce,  British ambassador, in addressing the  conference on international arbitration, said that the ill-feeling betwoen  nations which led to war was -hen  laid at the feet of the newspapers,  which were accused of misrepresenting the purposes and sentiments of Lhe  other side, leading eacli people to 11-  lieve itself wholly in the right, md  the other side wholly in tlie wrong.  While not defending he newspap >rs,  he questioned if they were really to  blame, stating that the press was what  thc people'made it, and that; if the  people wished the newspapers to show  a pacific spirit they would do so, >:s  the press reflects the spirit of t'ie  people.  In his address, Representative I'.-r-  tholdt said:  "If tlie president of the IJnifml  States were to say lo King 1'Mwird  and Emperor William, 'Let us kcrp  the peace, and in ease of any troub'e  between either two of our three couii-  tries, let us not draw the sword until  we have an investigation by an :in.  partial third party, be it power, er.n-  mission or court,' and that the tvo  monarchs would agree to this pro  posal, it .would signify the end ul  war." _  Alfred Moseley's speech was ' loss  conservative than the diplomatic  utterances of those, who preceded hnn  He is an Englishman, and arrived nt  the conference after a- trip from South  Africa. He said that he was not it  all sure that President Taft would -are  to take the initiative in saying something to Britain and Germany, hut  suggested that if he did he shoud  turn his attention to Germany first, -is  Britain had already proposed to co'ne  to some agreement with Germany regarding armaments, but had received  no'response.  ond we knew the ravenous pack was  gaining on us.

By thisHimn, of course hor trousseau was getting frayed nround the  bottom and rii.-ty around'the lop;  and the hope, which she had been  entertaining that she would somo day  be the possessor of some gowns had  become a sort of permanent hope  ns far as she could see, or, in fact a*  they both could see together.

Droom ~qrlnvcit~~dlnhoHeallv~as-lic-re-^  sumed the rubbing o' tils itantls.  "Ifs a large world, Droom," said his  employer easily.  "And small also, according to another  saying," supplemented Droom. "When  a man's down, everybody kicks him.  I'm afraid you could not survive the  kicking."  Droom grinned so diabolically as  again he resumed the rubbing of his  hands that tlie other turned away, with  an oath, and closed the door to the inside office. Bansemer was alone and  . where Droom's eyes could not see him,  but something told him that the grin  hung outside the door for many minutes, as if waiting for a chance to pop  in and tantalize him.  Bansemer was a good looking man of  the coarser mold���the kind of man. that  merits a second look in passing, and  the second look ls not always in his  favor. He was thirty-five years of age,  but looked older. His face was hard  aud deeply marked with the lines of intensity. The black eyes were fascinating in their brilliancy, but there was a  cruel, savage light In their depths. The  nose and mouth were clean cut and  pitiless In their very symmetry. Shortly after leaving college to hang out his  shingle he had married the daughter  of a minister. For two years her sweet  Influence kept bis efforts along the  righteous path, but he writhed beneath  the yoke of poverty. His pride suffered  because he was unable to provide her  with more of the luxuries of life. In  his selfish way he loved her. Failure  to advance made him surly and ill tempered, despite her amiable efforts to  lighten the shadows around their little  home. When the baby boy was born  to them and she,, suffered more and  more from the linkiuilness of privation  James Bansemer, by nature an aggressor, threw off restraint and plunged  into the traffic thnt soon made him infamously successful. She died, however, before thc taint of his duplicity  touched her, and he, eveu in his grief,  felt thankful that she never was to  know the truth.  At this time Bansemer lived in comfort at one of the middle class boarding houses uptown, and the boy was  just leaving the kindergarten for a  private school. Bansemer's calloused  heart had one tender chamber, and in  It dwelt the little lad with the fair  hair and gray eyes of the woman who  had died.  Late one November afternoon Just  Artist's Critic Buys Picture.  .Sir Edwartl Poynter, president of  the Royal Academy, kept the 73rd anniversary of his birthday a few days  ago. He succeeded Sir John Millais  as president in 18GG. The foundation  of Sir Edward's reputation was made  by his picture, "Israel in Egypt,"  whereby hangs a story. He was long  ago a member of a sketch club, and  one evening the subject set for illustration .was "Work." The future  P.R.A. hit upon the idea of drawing  a crowd of dusky Eastern slaves  dragging a colossal statue, and the  , sketch met with such praise that he  resolved to- make a big picture of it,  and. "Israel in Egypt" came into being. It found, however, one implacable critic, an engineer,- who sought  out the artist and proved to him conclusively that the great weight indicated could not'possibly be drawn by  tne number of slaves shown. Poynter  took the criticisms in good part, and'  added more slaves, at which the engineer was so well pleased thut he  bought the picture.

Two thousand people attended tho  sale, and bidding was keen from the  start.  In no case was property withdrawn  because of the failure to reach the re  serve, price, and in many cases the  nrices went far above wh.it was .anticipated.  This was especially the case in the  business property, when the choicest  corner in that locality brought $10,500.  Buyers from Austria, Alaska, United  States and Winnipeg secured property,  though the bulk of thc buyers -wore  from Vancouver. No unnecessnry talking was required to bring bids, the  value,of the property appealing directly to the buyers, who knew exactly  What thoy were after.

There would not be so many worn-  DUt, fagged looking women if we  learned early the value of that ounce  of prevention. With most of us prevention Is like thunder���it comes after  the danger is past. '���"'  So much'of tbe misery of life Is  preventable that it is pitiful how rarely the effort is made. We lose our  looks, break dowu before our time and  either are snuffed out altogether or  hang on creaking binges when we  should be In the full flush of livlug.  Most women act as if they were fatalists���what must be must be. Then  they groan when tbe inevitable occurs  Instead of living up to the true fatalist spirit of stoicism.  Perhaps you are one of the persons  who ever take any rest. You look  on life as a race to be run. forgettlug  that the strongest runner goes slow  until thp finish.  Have yon the foolish Idea that to  stop a minute to rend tbe papers or to  dip Into a famous book Is stealing  time thut should be devoted to husband or children? Are you charitable  to every one but yourself and look  upon letting up lu your mad pace as  ���hlrklngV  Are you one of those misguided beings who think monotonous plodding  Is duty and crush out young longings  for au occasional matinee or social  -���utlng lest you fall in some chimerical  3uty?  If so. readjust things. Learn to look  on these things as "that ounce of prevention" without which smnshups are  Inevitable. It is continual plodding  that not only makes life stale, but  orings wrinkles and narrow minds.  Do you ever stop to think what n  breakdown means? How many ot the  :oveled pleasures or longed for rests  could have been had for the doctor's  hire?  Occasional flight from the grind ^is  better tbaQ skilled specialists to keep  one well, which Is tbe sensible modern woman's reading of "that ounce of  prevention."

Probably one of the, most interesting of the many occupations followed  at St. Martin's le Grand is that of  the postal "doctors."

It is in the sorting room that  they are humorously termed "doctors."

When he dies, if he was a millionaire, the state will seize a maximum  of 27 per cent, of his entire property.

Loyalists and Empire's Defence  Toronto.���A strong position upon the  question of anada's naval policy was  taken by .the United Empire Loyalists'  association at a recent meeting. A  resolution' which had previously been  endorsed by the Daughters of the  Empire wns introduced and carried  unanimously. The resolution first expressed hearty appreciation and approval of both associations of the naval  defence resolutions passed by the Dominion parliament, and then said that  the Canadian naval service should be  organized^ on a sufficiently liberal and  comprehensive scale 'to provide ade  quate protection to our coasts and  commerce and also a contribution to  defensive power of.the empire.- They  will heartily endorse any action the  Canadian government may take pending organization of a Canadian .navnl  service to make a special ancl imme--  diate contribution to the Imperial  navy of one or more of the most  powerful battleships in the world.  Sometimes it becomes chronic and  returns again and again, wearing  out its victim.  At other times it develops rapidly into  pneumonia���cure is found in Dr.  Chase'-s Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine.    . ...  Any cold is serious enough when its  dreadful possibilities are considered,  but when there is soreness or tightness  in the chest and a dry hard cough you  can look for bronchitis, which is often  confused with an ordinary cold. -  It is usually known by aching limbs  and body pains, chilly feelings, weari-*  ness and weakness, pain in the chest  and a tight, tearing cough. Fever, dry  skin, thirst,' coated tongue and constipation are other symptoms.  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed ahd  Turpentine seems almost like a specific  for-bronchitis because it is so successful in loosening up the cough, aiding  expectoration and preventing the inflammation from reaching the lungs.  Bronchitis is particularly dreaded  because of its tendency to develop into  pneumonia and even when this dons  not result bronchitis is likely to return  again- and again whenever a slight  cold is taken until it wears put even  the most vigorous system.  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed nnd  Turpentine is-so prompt in affording  relief and so thorough and fnr-rcach-  ing in action that it succeeds when  ordinary cough medicines have no influence.  Mr. James F. Thompson, Yonge  Mills, Leeds Co., Ont., writes: "Last  winter my two hoys were so bad with  colds on the chest or bronchitis that  they coughed all night and could get  no rest or sleep. Several cough rem  edies were tried to no avail until I  was told about Dr. Chase's Syrup of  Linseed and Turpentine, and this  treatment, soon cured them." 25 cts. a  bottle, at all dealers, or Edmanson,  Bates & Co., Toronto.

The    Hague   Criticises   the    Position  Taken by Germany and France  in the Casablanca-Affair  The Hague.���The decision of the  Court of Arbitaration on the Cnsa-  blanca ^dispute between France and  Germany over the forcible seizure by  French officials of deserters from the  French foreign legion while under the  protection of the German consulate,  has been delivered. While not placing  the blame definitely upon 'cither.  France or Germany", the court censures the representatives of each nation in . several particulars. It declares that the secretary of "the German consulate at Casablanca wrongfully endeavored to bring about the  embarkation on a German steamship  of deserters from the French foreign  legion, who were not of German nationality, and adds that the consulate  had even no right to protect deserters'  who were of German nationality, nnd  that the consult committed an error in  signing their safe conduct.  Nevertheless, the decision continues,  the German" consulate officials were  not guilty of an intentional fault.  The court adds that the French military authorities were wrong in not respecting the de fncto protection exercised by the German consulate. The  circumstances did not justify the  French soldie'rs in threatening the consular agents with revolvers, nor in  their ill-treatment of the Moroccan  troops attached to the German consulate. ...���'.'  The court concludes with the statement that it is unnecessary to deal  with the other claims of the litigants.  ' The official view of the decision rendered by the court of arbitration on  the Casablanca dispute is favorable,  according to the Kord Deutsche Alle-  gerrieine Zeitung. *  "The decision," says the paper,  "takes a middle course, '.'between the  German and French view points.

COLLAPSE   OF    FRENCH   STRIKE  Curtain Is Rung Down Upon General  Turmoil and Peace and Quietness Now Reigns  '  Paris.���The curtain has been rung  down upon the general strike, amid recriminations by the leaders, who tried  to bring the responsibility for the failure upon each other and the defeated  postal employees. Tlie end came, when  a few hundred laborers voted to re-  sumework. ,  The General v Federation of Labor  issued a manifesto in which they seel-  to cover "up their retreat, explaining  that the postal employees were over  confident, of the success of their second strike, "which everything shows  was prepared and instigated by the  government, which was desirous of an  opportunity to avenge itself against  the leaders of the first strike."  The statement adds that the strikes  of the excavators and other workmen  have sufficiently demonstrated the solidarity of the proletariat and the postmen.  With the surrender of the general  Federation of Labor the strike of the  postal employees, which had already  practically ended, collapsed utterly  and the few men who were still on  strike decided to return to their  offices and try to obtain their old  positions. The postmen and a few  of the other unions arc now raising a  fund from which to give thc dismissed  postal employees $30 a month until  they can obtain other employment.  .Minard's   Liniment  used  by   Physi  cians.       :  Two   Extraordinary   Operations  " At ��� the St. Louis City hospital then  ,was performed recently two sureicnl  operations of such a dplicnte and un  usual nature that leading surgeons n'  the city went there to see them.
