Still Kicking for a Station. <
Nelson Tribune; - The town of
Moyio, oue of the most important
points'on thc Crow's Nest Pass railway, is, still without a station and
agent. The -people there have been
kicking for such facilities for over a
year, and they hope to get what they
want by continuing to kick. The
local board of trade has the- matter in
charge. On Tuesday last thc board"
elected officers for the ensuing year,
and as ,the' president-elect is an old
newspaper man who has become a
mine manager the town will get what
it should get, or someone will know
the reason why. The board decided
to draft a memorial and. forward it to
President Shtuighnessy of the Canadian Pucific, citing the urgent need of
placing a station aud agent at Moyie.-
If president-elect D re wry will only
take time to draft the memorial,
President' Shtuighnessy will come
down ofl'his high horse aud telegraph'
orders to his subordinates to build
that station and appoint that agent,
and do it within 30 days. Moyie is all
right, because it has the right kind of
mines within sight and the right kind
of men developing them.

" Ah 1 Then, as I supposed, you
knew hia intentions before he went.
However, as he did not succepd you
cannot be held on tliaL charge. To
continue, L.e"ivis, 'a.s 1 have said, killed
Marvel. He then succeeded in making-
everyone believe that it was hi? own
body- which was foiuid, while he passed off for his son, just returned from
sea. This might have been a suc-cess-
' ful ruse had not a strange chain of
circumstances implicated his niece in
the affair, and despairing-' of proving-
lier innocense in anv other way, he
committed suicide, leaving- a full confession."
•' I don't see what I have to do with
all   this."
" You will in a moment. Tf the
truth is e.Ypoped, ihe knowledcrp must
come to this irirl of who and \vlnu

" I must invent  a. tale which   will  fit
the circumstances,  and you must sub-,
stantiate the stun-."
" I will do nothing of the kind."
" Oh ! Yes, you shall. You will have"
no choice in the matter." '    •
'• 1 tell you 1 will ,not. "Who is this
plrl ? The daughter of the woman who
crossed the sea to take my husband
away from me." r
" You and that man, by your heartless treatment of that woman, hastened,   I  may say    caused,  her death."
"What do I  care for that ?      If you
.think J  will help you to spare the deli-
' care  feelings  of this  girl,   you   do   not
know, me." ,   -
"It is just because
do  know  you  that T

" What   do you mean ?
I imagine that T
am  so  confident
to be well  in-
time   to   spare.
" you  must choose  between oboyiny
me and absolute poverty."
" How so ?"
" [ will explain. Marvel married this
girl's mother, and she is his child. His
wife was alive when you married him,
and, according to your confession to
her, when she met you in Paris, you
knew of this first marriage, but chose
to ignore it. , If you had been united
in this State, I could easily have you
imprisoned for that bisramous marriage, .but, fortunately for ,you. you
were married abroad. However, I
will not let you slip through my fingers
■for all that. 1 think you did what you
attributed to the real wife. You were
anxious to share Marvel's position and
his fortune,-and therefore I believe
you will do anything-for monev. So
T intend to manage you through your
cupidity. If you persist in your obstinacy, I will reveal all that T have
learned and will see that steps ixVi'
taken'Lo gain possession of Marvel's
jriipc-rty for his rightful heir, his
daughter. Moreover, you shall bo
made io give up whatever moiievs you
i:oiv lia,ve of his, us'-lliey become a
part of his'estate This will be simple, for, as you'can easily be shown by
the records of the Parisian court to
be the bigamous, wife only, of course
you would be entitled to no share in
his  proDftrty."
" How  is it  that you are so  well in
formed ?" l
" It  is  my profession
formed.      1   have '  no
Choose '."
" You are a devil !" Then, after a
few minutes' hesitation, '' What is it
tliat  you   wish   me  to do ?"
•■ So ! You decide that my way is
best, do you ? You are wise ! Well,
then, you will return with me, and on
the way r will explain what I require
of you. Obey me and no harm shall
come  to you."

The inquest over the dead body
which had been found in the secret
room attracted even more interest and
a. greater crowd than had the first.
All looked eagerly forward in the explanation promised by Mr. Barnes, and
loud were the praises which he received on every side. At length the moment arrived, and the woman whom
the detective had brought with him
aginst: her will was made to take the
Maud. Prompted by Mr. Hames, Mr.
Topper conducted the examination of
this   witness :
" Will   you   give   your   name   if   you
pleawe,   madam ?"
" Mrs.  Horace  Paul."
" I'ou have seen the body of the deceased ?"
" T  have."
"t Do you recognize it ?"
"I   do.    It   i.s   the   body   of   my   husband."    This   caused   a   sensation.
" Can you gi\-L- any reasi n why he
should have wished to , harm Mr.
Lewis ?"
Hl- knew Mr. Lewis long ago, and
did some work for him. My husband
was an architect and a practical carpenter. Mr. Lewis engaged him when
he first came to- this town to build a
secret apartment in his house. Mr.
f.ewis was very anxious that no one
should know of this hiding-place, and
that is why he brought a man from a
distant city to do this' work. His
anxiety to keep his.secret, coupled with'
fiie fact that he paid my husband an
immense sum of money, and , stipulated . that he shpuld never /return to
-I.ee, made my husband suspect, that it
must have been ' as a storehouse'for
money that he wished to use it. .He
spoke so often of .this that, fearing he
might be;'tempted .to" investigate it, at
length .I persuaded him to go with me
to Europe. Lately; however, he Insisted on ret/urning, as we had used up
most of our,means. I did not believe,
'after so many years, that he ' would
again think of this- 'hidden treasure,'
as he was wont to call it. But now I
see it must have been that' which
I brought  him "here."
, After,this testimony. she -was' allowed to retire, and .Mr. Barnes took the
stand  to   make   a  statement/
"Before we give this case to. ' the
jury, I should like to say that I think
ibis man remained after the crime was
committed with the intention of seareh-
■ ing for the treasure. Mr. Burrows will
testify that he heard him in the. secret
chamber during the first night after
tbe murder. I think he assumed the
personality of the1 dead man's , son [as
the best means of enjoying the ..-fuue
which he expected to obtain as well as
to avoid suspicion most effectually.
Failing, to find any treasure or to inherit under, the will, it. wa.s .still his
only means of safety to remain. Femur remorse at last impelled suicide, a,
not unusual thing with criminals Of
un intellectual order."
The  verdict   of   the  jury  placed   the
:-i.-sponatbillty   for  the   murder  on   the
dead man, and. Indeed, though it little
understood the true facts of tlie case,
that was where- it justly belonged. ''
There still remained . one or tv. o
points about which Mr. Barnes felt a
curiosity, arid at the first opportunity
after Marvel's release he puestioned
" Mr. Marvel," said he, '" how js it
that you thought that Mr. Lewis wa.s
dead, as we supposed him to be, when
I spoke to you on the vessel at Portsmouth?"
" 1 guessed it. 1 had received a letter
frrm Miss Lewis, in which she- used the
words ' after the events of lasL night.'
I did not quite understand this at'first
through I placed'no special importance
on it until you told me that a murder had been committed. It flashed over
my mind in a moment that it was to
f nis iliat Virgie had alluded,'and I feared that she and her uncle had quarrelled on lier return to ihe house after
leaving me and that ,in a fit of passion
she had killed him. That is why I refused to go back- with you. 1 did not
wish to be a witness against her.
Afterv. arcl it dawned upon me that I
myself must have been suspected, or
you would never have come after me.
Tin n I was anxious  to return."
" That explains the point in question, but' there is one other matter.
Why was it that .Mr. Everly sent you a
letter that night and that you went
io Lpping instead of go'ing to Portsmouth '!"
" 1 formed the idea of going to Portsmouth after I reached the farm that
night. Previously I had sent word to
loverly, asking' him to get some money
for me and explaining how he could
frrwarc; it without betraying my
v. hereabouts. If he had brought ir
himself, his presence in Kpping niisht
have excited suspicion, as he was well
known to-be my friend. I knew that
wu could trust the matter to Harrison,
and T suggested him as the .bearer of
the letter and money.     To receive these
I  was'compelled to go to  Kpping."

Rome: months later 'Mr. Barnes received cards to the nptials of Virginia
Lewis and Walter Marvel and was
p'eased to attend (he ceremony.' The
bride and groom went abroad on their
honeymoon. , A few day's after their
departure Squire plney sent to the detective a certified cheque for $5,000,
vu'th the1 information that it must he
accepted from Ihe newly married
couple, as Virginia happily expressed
it, " in part payment for our happiness,
which we enjoy through you." . They
had delayed, -making this, presentation
until they should be out of the couu-'
tiy, lest Mr. Barnes might endeavour
to return the gift. Appreciating the
intentions ' which prompted its bestowal, Mr.- Barnes accepted the
money. He is now his own master, being chief of a private bureau which he,
has established in Xew York. 1 may
as well mention, also, that Burrows
manfully apologized to Mr. Barnes for
Ills actions in this case and was once
more received into the good graces of
the more experienced detective.

I Tfie Red Haired Qirf. 1
Au Instance Whom a .*
Man Found It State to ^
Go Hack on  HI J Girl.   "0
It happened two years ago, just'before
I was a Qualilied doctor and M. A. 1
spent a great part of that summer's vacation at Ballater. because Lctty and 'her
mother had gono there for a chanse. nnd.
a-j I>ttv and I "were engaged, naturally
,,-c liked spending most of our time together.       '
About the 2-lthpt September, however,
vo all returned to Aberdeen, and I resolved to spend the remaining partof my
holidays in the Buchau district, where' 1
had a few friends. So, after saying "good-
by" to Letty for what seemed an inter-
m'huible period—though it was only for n
fortnight—-I took the train for Mintlnw.
where I was met by, a friend, who,'for
convenience   sake,   I' shall   call   George
White. ■' "" -"■ '—-'
Old Deer, which Is near MIntlatv, ,wa*
an admirable center for a cyclist, arid, as
the w eather goes was good. White nnd I
rook Ions spina together. It wus toward
the end of harvest, and, ' although
"'•btooks" were still standing iri' a few
fields, most farmers had already finished
leading! and it was ussuredly the time for
"meal and ales."
Now, 1 had never bees at one of those
functions, so after spending a delightful
week at Old Doer I prolonged my visit
for a day to go' to BarnbiUV harvest
home. George promised there would he
some fun. 'Barnhill waa one of the largest farms in the'district, and this year
the. "meal and ale" was to be a big
nCfnir. ' ',
,. The evening came. We drove over
rather late, and when we got there, the
dancing had begun. A wooden Hoor had
been laid in the immense barn, the walls
were decorated with flags nnd flowers
and ripe corn, and at one end was a raised platform for the fiddlers. .At the other end of the room a huge pole had been
stuck up, on tho top of which was the
"clyack sheaf,;' all dressed with brightc
scarlet nnd blue ribbon.        '
"White introduced mo to his host, a
short., jovial looking man, ijnd to his two'
daughters, Misses Kate and Emmy'Smith,
and several others, but directly I entered
the barn I became conscious of a nirl
with flaming red hair dressed in pale blue
muslin.- who, although dunciiiR ut the
time, kept Idokiug at me with her great
ejes'till I felt a tiueer thrill ko through
me nnd a.feeling as if somewhere before
I had seen that girl.
I was standing by Miss Smith. I tried
to give her all ray attention.
'"You know, Mr. Keith, this Is really
the servants* night," she was saying, "but
we always invite a few of our own
friends too. Tberi we d.incc<herc ,till .12
o'clock, and after, 12 father makes it a
rule that the rest of us must go into tho
house and leave the others to enjoy it up
till 5 in the inoniina and sometimes even
till G."
"Tell me," 1 fcaid more hurriedly than
politely, "who is that lady dressed in pale
blue dancing with tho tail, dark gentleman?"
Miss Smith laughed slightly.
"Tho tall gentleman is my brother and
tlio girl my dearest school friend, Miss
Nora Stuart.    Shall 1 introduce you?"
Although  fascinated in n certain way,
r tlioujrht of Letty aud did not particularly   wish   an   introduction,   but   now   I
could   not  well   refuse)   and   soon   1   was,
dancing with the red hid red girl.
There was an indescribable something
that made her. very attractivo and kept
me by her side, and again and again a*
she talked she mado me think'that I"had
met and known her somewhere before,
but memory would not help me. And
soon I did not think of that, but felt only
happy to live in the 'present and know
her aud talk to her now.
The    hours   flew   swiftly   by.      I    had
danced  with her nearly the whole evening and  scarcely  left her Bide.    Twelve
o'clock came.    Mins Stuart and I were in
tho garden.    Tlio harvest moon was shining brightly and from the barn came the
distant  music of the  fiddles  and  concertinas.   We walked along the narrow path.
"The roses are almost over," sho baid.
"Oh, no!    There in one yet.    'Tho last
rose of .summer.'    Il is a yellow oue.    Let
me get it for you."
"Tlumk you!"
Bhe stuck it in her dress.
"Yon   know,"   she  said   laughingly,   "1
am so fond of roses, but I can never wear

understood.    It was not oveu auburn—if
was    decidedly,  red—-but   just    then    I

"On the contrary, it is a blessing. I
hastened to reply- "Tliat is JIM my fa
vorite color, and 1 think it very .Leant.fill,
smil 1 also think a blue inrslin gown tin-
pretiiebt in all the wot Id when ar certain
person wears it." .
Letty was far away.    I hud completely
forgotten her existence.
-You' flatterer!" she said. ■ smiling.
Then she tapped her foot impatiently
upon the ground and frowned, -lint men

'S;nm atler.ward White and 1 drnVe back
to Old Deer together, and ne.it day I
went on to reterhcad to spend tli* ie-
maining days of my holiday.
At first my ihouglits v.-ere full of that
red haired girl, and evcty tune f went out
I hop»d to meet her. I cycled lip to Oh;
Deer three days running, aud pr.ee even
:n|ip.l at Rarnhill. wheie I was entertained to leu by Mi-;s Snii'h and h«-r sister,
wh.i infosmed me that their fiiend. Miv*
Blur.: I, had gone hmne., •'
I'.ul the hiM few days of my holiday
brought Letty nearer, and. dear girl. 1
begun to'loiig to see her again.''And when
at last I took the train to Ahetdi;eii, I
saw that the other had only been a liaising fancy and that I had la-en led on by
a bold, designing girl and that, after ail,
I eared for Letty only.
1 had written her only the day before,
so I knew she would he expecting me.
and after getting some of the journey's
dust rubbed' off, I set cut for lhe little
house nt Queen's G-Voss. "   ,<
I was getting impatient. I quickened
my pace.   I almost ran. ,.
When t was shown into the pretty
drawing room, Letty was there alone.
She wore a"-white dress that I bad always
admired, but she did „uot run to meet, me
with a little, glad cry, as I had expected.
She only stood up nnd held out her hand
coldly, "l kissed her, but "she did not re;
turn the caress.
; ''Letty,' dear, aren't you glad to see me
again? You have dressed for me alone,, I
know, though you do not we}"—
"I thought you admired pale blue, Joe.
That was why 1 dressed in white."
That made m'e think of tliat horrid red
hnireil girl.   I really began to dislike her.
"Why do you say that, dear.? You know
I always like you in white. And why are
you so cold—and ^-different?' Have !
changed? I do not'think so, nnd you are
just lhe same, except for your coldness.",
I glanced nt her fair hair. The sun.
shining in from a side , v. indow,' put a
touch of gold in it'. I raised- my'hand ami
gently pushed back a stray curl that Lid
her eyes from ine. She shrunk from my
touch. , '
"Don't:" Fhe said, emphatically. "Red
!« your favorite Color, you know. I wonder you can bear to,look nt'my ugly, fair
1 feltoalmost giddy with astonishment.
ITow r hated that red haired girl'
"I  hate  red."   I   cried   vehemently.   "I
detest il!" '',.",
".Men are nil alike. They have no constancy whatever. Their Taney Is taken
bv every frcrh face lliey poc. I have no
belief iii them—none."  , ...
With which words, spoken quickly ami
angrilv, Letty rushed ,out of the room,
aud the door'sliut behind her with a little hang.
I was dazed nntl perplexed. I had
heard almost tlie same words before, and
now I felt as if I could have murdered
that red haired girl. •   •   ,
Dropping into a low chair, 1 buried my
face in my hands. Slowly it came to me
that it was all over between Letty and
myself. .When nt last the idea got el early"'fixed iu my mind.' 1 began wondering
why I was staying in that drawing room.
I had no right there now.
I got up slowly and looked once again
round the dear room. . How' familiar
everything seemed, and perhaps I might
never see it again! Then I went to the
door and on opening it came face to face
Y.-ith—the rod Inured girl!
I staggered back. Was I mud?' Wan
this all a horrible dream? I clutched the
back of a chair for support.0 Coolly the
gill held'out lier right hand. Sh-' wo;e
the same half evening dress of pale nine
muslin aud fastened by a gold pin. A"ar
her throat was a yellow, withered rose.
"How do yon do, Mr. Keith?"
1 could stand this no longer. I took a
quick'step past her and reached tlie stair.
".Joe. Joe! Don't go! Don't go! Don't
you know mo?" !'•
I looked rn'uud just as I reached the
foot. The red in aired giil had taken off
her hair, nnd underneath were Letly's
own fair tresses. She was laughing and
crying by turns, and of course 1 rushed
back and took the dear girl in my a run.
"Didn't I make up iny checks and oyp-
brows beautifully. Joe?" she asked after
a time, as v.v sat iu the diawing r.'.-orn together. "And dnn'.t you think 1 ad well?
The Smith girls were school friends of
mine, and we made it up together."
Then, again she said:
"I do not know if I can trust you now,
dear. A little more and yuii would have
proT'Osed to uie us the red haired girl,
and then .you would have been engaged
to two—no—yes. to two girls."

Tlie Clever Spider.
"One of my friends was accustomed
to jfrant shelter fo a uutnber or garden
spiders under »i vacant varaudn and to
watcli ,tlieir hahits. One day a sharp
storm hrola; out. aud the wind r.ifrod .^o
furiously throug-h the {jai'den that the
spiders fuill'ered damage from It, although sheltered hy ihe veranda. The
niainy.;irds of one of these wehs,. as the
.sailors would call Ihem, were broken
so that the web was'blown hither aud
thither, like a slack sail in a storm.
'•The spider m.'wlft no fresh threads,
hut tried io' help itself iii another ,way.
It let itself dowu to the ground by a
thread and crawled to,a place where
liiysouie splintered, pieces of a wooden
fence, thrown down by the storm. , It
fastened a thread to one of the bits of
wood, turned hack with it and hung it
wllh a strong thread to the lower part
of its nest, about five feet from tho
ground. The performance was a wonderful one, for the weight of the wood
sufjiced to keep the uest tolerably linn,
while it ,was yet liyln enough to yield
to tlie wind and so prevent further injury. The piece of wood was-about 2'A
inches long and as thick as a goose
"On the following day a careless
servant knocked her head agaiust the
wood, and it fell down. But in the
course of a few hours the spider mended her web, broke the supporting
thread in two and let the wood fall to
tbe ground."—Our Animal Friends.

Dublin  Hoolliluck*, 17SO.
Among the populace of Dublin iu
ITSO, says the Utiiversity .Magazine, the
shoeblacks'were si numerous and formidable body. The polish thoy used
was lampblack and n^gf; for which
they purchased all that were rotten in
the markets. Their implements' consisted of ,n three legged stool, a basket
containing a1 blunt knife, called a
sptidd, a painter's brush and an old
wig. A gentleman usually went out in
the morning with dirty boots or shoes,
sure to find a shoeblack sitting on his
siool at Ihe corner of lhe street. The
gem Ionian put his foot In the lap of the
shoeblack without ceremony, aud the
; artist no'-iiped it with his spudd, wiped
it with his wig'aud then laid.on his
composition' as thick as black paint
with his paiuter's brush.
The suih' dried with a rich polish, requiring no friction and little inferior
to the "elaborated modern fluids, save
only the intolerable odors exhaled from
egas in a high state of putridity and
which tilled any house which was entered before tho composition was quite
dry and sometimes even tainted the air
of fashionable drawing rooms. Polishing shoes, we should mention, was at
this litne a refinement almost confined
to cities, people iiv the country being
generally satisfied with grease.

him how I liked the country. If your

The king leilected for a moment.
"There can be no objection 10 that, so
far as I can see.  Vou may proceed."
The missionary's hands were untied,
and (here upon a piece 0/ bark he inscribed the following words:

.V Tale From  the 3I;Nlerlou» Knnt.
The hist wonderful tale being told
among the Ihirniese in Kangoon is concerning a monster egg. A few months
ago near Shwebo the villagers heard a
strange and mysterious voice in the
iuii'de uttering in Burmese the words,
"I am going to lay," which were repeated frequently several times a day
for umnv da vs. Eventually the egg was
laid, and its size is said to exceed that
of ten large paddv baskets. Nobody
will go near this egg. from which now
come the words. "1 am going to hatch,

■ Locking: Up at Giliraltar.     ,
Perhaps the favorite si slit of Gibral-,
tar is the daily procession at sundown
for the locking of the town gates. The
keeper of the keys, looking very like a
prisoner despite, his' uniform, marches
through the town iu the center of a
military guard, preceded by a regimental .band, which plays Inspiring
and familiar tunes. The keys, of enormous size, are borne aloft before him
as an outward and visible emblem of
the vigilance, of Britain iu' guardiug
her prime military treasure.
Ou/arriviug at the gates the guard
salutes, the martial strains strike up
with a redoubled paean of triumph,
while tho great doors slowly swing to
and are solemnly locked for the night.
Then right about turn, and the procession marches back to the convent to
deposit the keys in the governor's keeping, conveying by its passage an assurance to the ' people and garrison that
they may rest in peace. '
Once the gates are- shut, it were easier for a camel to pass through the eye
of a needle than for any unauthorized
person to go into Gibraltar. Eveu a be-
'lated ofiieer returning from pig sticking beyond the lines would be confronted by so many formalities and the
necessity of inconveniencing so many
high personages that lie would probably prefer to'encounter'the discomfort of a Spauish iuu .without.

There was little surpriso over the
conviction of Captain Dreyfus. The
evidence all along showed that he was
not receiving a fair and impartial trial,
aud that a just verdict could scarcely
be looked for; it showed a cut and
dried affair'from the very first, ^row-
ever, it is not at all likely that Dreyfus
will be compelled to servo put the 10
year sentence imposed..or even undergo the tenth part of the sufferings
which he endured during his detention
on Devil's Island.

Nelson   Tribune:
hiines in the neighborhood of Moyie,
in East Kootenay, are owned by Toronto men, and every one of them ' is
ut work. There aro now four big
minee withiu a radius of four
miles of Moyio and many premising prospects,- some of which' will
probably develop into good properties.
All the big mines are in the hands of
wealthy companies and are employing
many men. Toronto -men are mine
workers and not politicians.
Moyie's payroll is increasing 'every
month. That oi July was several
thousand dollars more than for June,
and that of August a great deal larger
'.han that of July, I'ast Saturday the
St. Eugene Minir$ -9^. paid their
men in the fiej^htfeff-'e'er? cf ?G,50'C,
and lue Canadian i9.Q\0 Fields syndicate, operating the Lake Shcfo mine;
nearly $3,000. This amount witli the
payrolls of the Society Girl, Park,
Mitchell & Co.'a sawmill and the
numernug carpenters and laborers employed about town; Moyie's payroll
for the month of August was
close on to .$15,000.
