NYnic*;,���There are several hundred readers of Tin:  Economist behind in their subscriptions. No doubt this  in attributable to neglect and nil that will he required t<>  rn.sure a hasty re^pome is this gentle reminder.  DUEI NO tlie past few   weeks   there have  been a  series  -of. burglaries'   -nui other  minor crimes  perpetrated in Nelson.      Indeed,   so far from   being  tlie   most   law-abiding   city   in.   British   Columbia,  Nelson Is now  euni ag for   itself the   reputation    of  being a haven for criminals,     A few   years ago, the  severity and certainty of the punishment   meted   out  to law-breakers had a deterrent-effect' on   crime, and  the criminal class gave -Nelson a wide berth. Latterly,  it has been the custom-to deal gently with  criminals,  with the   inevitable   result that   law-breakers   have  come to regard .kelson as a criminal's  Paradise. The  hardened   criminal .��� realizes that he   can commit .a  crime, which, in other places, would cast him    many  years of sec. usidn in one of Her   Majesty's   prisons,  and only be'con lined here''for a-few months in jail.  Of the men   undergoing   various  terms of  incarceration in the Provincial jail, fifty per   cent, belong  to the criminal class.     Thev are at war with'society  and ha ve no regards for the rights of societ}'.    Well-  appoiuted houses of detention, like our provincial jail,  are regarded only as  pleasant   places of re-ort,   provided by a beneficent government   for the   better accommodation of men   who spurn   honest labor   and  prefer to live by  the   profits of  crime.*    What is a  month or two detention in a   Provincial   jail to men  who have served sentences for nearly every crime in  the criminal calendar'?���  Indeed, so assured do the criminals feel on this  P>int, that when discharged from the jail here,' in-  ^'u\ of seeking new pastures, they tarry here and  .commit other misdeeds, knowing that, if caught,  tiieirpunishment will be altogether insignificau t com-  I'^red with their offense. The Provincial jail is  crowded with prisoners who should be in the peuiteii-  tiarv, had their punishment been made commensurate  with their crime.  We do not believe that eve��y man in jail is  vicious  at heart.      There are manv who, in healthy environ-'.-  meat, would become good men, and in- dealing with  these men, the greatest leniency is  urged.      It is the  hardened criminal   with   which   the authorities   are  asked to deal severely���the vicious fellow who, with  in a day from the time of his release,  is again on the  warpath.      Where the crime is a mild offense against  the laws and the offender is.not a hardened criminal,  the punishment should not be too   great, but   where  the offender is known to belong to the criminal class/  the punishment   should not -..���only  be of a   character  that would relieve society   of the   law-breaker's presence for a number of ye.'-rs, but should also be given  with a view of acting as a deterrent for others engaging in crime as a means of.livelihood.  Moreover, so considerate have the authorities been  in providing adequate and comfortable accomodations  for their guests, that a term in the local jail is regarded more in the light of a vacation than a punishment for crime. As a fact, it is not an uncommon  occurence for a discharged c mviet to fall into the  hands of the police on the day of his leaving the  Provincial institution.  One great trouble appears to be in the  discharge of  Prisoners without providing them with means to beein  1 e anew.      There are many men who leave jail with  Just now the city is infested with a large number of  discharged   prisoners.      They   are   hanging around  the third-rate   hotels and not one.seems,   disposed to  work.     Nearly everv nh;ht something is stolen from  private houses, and the police naturally conclude that  the perpetrators are among   the discharged prisoners.  They make -hi arrest and very often it transpires that  they gather iu   the thief.      But   that   does not   prevent crime      On   the   contrary,    when   it   becomes  known that the thief receives oaly a   short sentence,  others of his kin 1 1:1 *;ic mri^ai t > ste il.

THE NELSON ECONOMIST  infliction of Nelson. Iu ;> ny event, the j udges are  called upon to discharge.a. great moral obligation in  the way of dealing severely with law-breakers. A  recurence to the old methods of administration of  jutice is essential, and once more .it..must be. made  known that British Columbia judges and juries an*  terrors to evildoers.  It will not surprise anyone to leans at any moment  that the Semiin Government has been defeated. h  is now at the mercy of one man and he plays with  Mr. Semiin the same as the cat does with the mouse  previous to the destroying process. Indeed, almost anv other man than Mr. Semiin would long ere  this have rebelled against the tyr nay of his persecutor, but after i>eing out in the cold for years, it is  hard for the leader of the Government to cast aside  the crown which was thrust upon him. it is doubtful if Mr. Semiin ever dreamt he would one day be  Premier of British Columbia. Certainly bv no  stretch of imagination'could the free and independent  electors of this-Province contemplate Charles Semiin  in the light of a possible Premier.  ���'In view of the cora^icaSsd condition of political  parties in British Columbia at the present time, it is  difficult to forth'any idea of what will occur when the  funeral dirge of the Semiin party is sung. Of course.  the .Lieut.-Governor will hold the middle of the  stage for a time, but what line he will take no one  seems to know, although some profess-to believe that  .he will play the role of the ambitious father. If it  resolves itseli into a ne.-iv election, it is .hardlv likely  the electors on Vancouver Island are yet prepared to  shatter their idols. ��� On the mainland, Federal party  .lines will* in all probability, be drawn, with the result that the next House, may be as chaotic in its  composition as the present'  one..     Indeed, it   .might  -u .wv., tin*-    \h*>- l<\n:\d    members,   bv   .standinir to-  getber, may hold a balance -of powwr in the next  House. One thing is certain...we are on life eve of a  great change iu British Columbia 'public affjirs, and  that it may..be lor the. benefit ot tiie Province should  l>e the earnest prayer of all.  Appropriating the words of the ��laily report's of  Lord Roberts i'rom South Africa, the mining situation may be said to be unchanged. .The statement  that an-alien mine-owner was importing alien labor so  that he could more rapidly absorb the mineral wealth  of Canada has not bseu dented, and we therefore  take it for granted that such is the case. In such  event, the most decisive blow yet administered to  the well-being and prosperity of Uritish Columbia  has been delivered. We have no desire to play the  role of alarmist, but tlie conclusion is forced upon  us that with a laiye al.en population, lacking in the  common interest and aspiration of tlie Canadian, we  will soon witness a repetition of the foul crimes that  have made the Siatc ol Pennsylvania   shunned by all  law-abiding citizens*,  nverless   to   check  racter.  ���Worse' than' all \ the law seems  the   avarice   of  men of this  ���-���** .��MH���WWftlliWH **��*>*>  Another mine-owner, a British subject, by the way,  is making every reasonable effort to fill his mine with  KugHsh-speaking workmen. hi this he!'is rcrfectlv  within his rights, and no one can find .fault with him  for,the course bet is pursuing.'

The  attitude of the British Government after the Jameson  raid ought to have been studiously reassuring, but  unfortunately it was very much the reverse. Great  Britain, when victorious, as victorious she will in-  fallibly.be. will have gained a dependency and lost a  colony, for what emigrant, other than a mere gold  digger, would choose to settle in such a caldron of  race hatred and revenge as South Africa after this  war will be !"  Mr, Charuss Wiluams, whose reviews of" .'the  .war situation in the Loudon fender are read with  eagerness, is a gentleman well qualified to discuss  military nutters. For years he acted as war corr.es-.  po'ndcnt of the London Da fly News, and his letters to his  paper during the Soudan campaign of 1884-5 might  be compiled and -used as a history of that affair. On  his return to London he exposed many of the swindles by which the War. .Department .was robbed by tin-  scrupulous contractors. One of his sons, Mr. Fred  Williams, is political editor of a Montreal paper/  and visited British Columbia  four or five vears  Wo./  Railroad building and other contemplated public  enterprises should make the coming summer a   prosperous one for Nelson,     If  to   this were  added the  settlement.ofthe mining troubles, the  population   of  tins city next'autumn would closely approach 10,000.  Nelson merchants are laying in large stocks in -anticipation of a busy summer, one   house, F,    Irvine &���  Co., having their buyer in the Eastern markets   now  purchasing goods.  Thh   new city   council   is  manifesting  a   praiseworthy spirit in  the direction of keeping things mov-  i1 1 g. T he re a p pea rs to be a dQs.ire to keep Ne ison wel 1  to the front   s an updo-date  city.    Following  close  upon the request for tenders for macadamizing Baker  ��� street, comes the proposal of Aid. Arthur to indicate  the name of.-street and number of house  by   painted  signs and figures..    How many in Nelson to-day can  give off-hand the names of half-a-dozen  streets   running parallel with Baker or Ward ?    If residents cannot accomplish this simple feat of  memorizing, how  can a newcomer'be expected to tell "where he is at?"  By all means, placard the street corners.    It is an-inexpensive luxury, and one that n-��t onlv th" stranger  within our gates but the "oldest inhabitant"  as   well  will appreciate.  thousand men were selected indiscriminately iu Canada and forwarded to South Africa at least one thousand of the number would be sure-enough soldiers in  a year and sufficiently trained to cause dreadful  havoc with an enemy. The other nine thousand  would probably be just as willing, but they would be  wanting in the special training required for the work.  It would be like the discovery of America by Columbus���simply a case of knowing how. The Strathcona  Horse s, of course,'a different question.. The men  are being selected for a special purpose���scouting.  Their training adapts them for that work, and they  will probably accomplish much that could not be undertaken by the regular soldiers. But to send ten  thousand men, picked up here, there and everywhere  in Canada, to South Africa tQjGghts-de by.side with  the finely-disciplined soldiers of the Empire, would  be. simply throwing more difficulties in the way of  progress of British arms against the Boers.  After mature deliberation the Attorney-General  of British Columbia has decided to take up the great  "high treason" case against the publisher of the  Kamloops Standard. It appears that Joseph Martin  is determined to prosecute the publisher to the bitter  end, and it may be that Mr. Martin is more sensitive  as regards-the attacks made upon himself than by a  a desire to protect the dignity of the throne, as reflected in the person of Lieut.-Governor Mclnnes.  Mr. Martin gave generously of* his time to the prosecution of libel suits in Manitoba ; perhaps he is going  to follow out the same line here.  The Greenwood Tim^s tells of a certain local merchant who decided that because Spokane was a larger  place stationery coti Id be secured there cheaper and  better than 'in Green wood. He sent an order to a  Spokane printing house, secured prices that were  lower than those charged by Greenwood printing  establishments, but when he .paid out express and  dutv he found  that his   stationery cost him   twenty-  ��� 1 j  ��     t**i!��iM ���"��������'>*���*���*"*  u.  live per cent more than it -.would in (.greenwood, tie  also went to the Times office and acknowledged that  the work was not as satisfactory as that done by the  home offices and that the experiment had completely  convinced him that it was better to patronize offices  in Greenwood. The incident points a moral and  adorns a tale.  Wk are forced to   endorse   the  proposition  of the  Nelson    Minn-  that   this   indiscriminate   offering  of  Canadian volunteers for service in South Africa is becoming a trifle overdone.   The Empire has surelv not  reached that stage when its  integrity  depends   upon  the   service   of   ten   thousand    raw   recruits    from  Canada.     It is all well enough  to show   the   Mother  Country where Canada stands   when the  Empire   is  attacked, bit it is not a wise thing   t >  permit   Canadians to get into their heads that they are "the whole  show/'    We have not the slightest doubt that if ten  Up to the hour of going to press, nothing of an unusual character was heard from South Africa. Evidently -the impression prevails in London that Buller  is fighting his way through to Ladystnith.  So far the health authorities have succeeded in  warding off a visitation of smallpox .from Spokane.  It is reported from the latter city that the authorities  have the epidemic well in check.  Elaborate preparations are being made for the  Rossland winter carnival, which takes place next  week.  1  ym  m  -��*T  1    ft  ^<"Wf*r-i.   Iff  * T 1    ~K* *���  im <M

THE fondness of great men   for children   has  frequently been commented upon.    The  greatest
soldiers have succumbed to the smiles of -little  child-
dren   and   the    greatest    statesmen    have -'thrown
off the cares of state to seek ■ recreation in  the  companionship of the rising geuerati-m.    The late  Chief
Justice  Davie, often   referred  to in  polities as "the
Czar,"   was  a notable   instance.    His   fondness  for
children was not only demonstrated in the  attentions
he bestowed on members of his  own   family'; -but in
his habitual kindness to little ones and to women folk
at times when little thoughtful attentions  were  most
timely.    He was then at his best and the stern   politician    became    transformed    into  a living   exposition of tender consideration-   Travelling   upon   railway or steamboat,  if a   little one's  voice was heard
either in plaint or in merriment, his features instantly
relaxed, the stern politician   then demonstrating how
much of the milk of  human   kindness  he possessed.
Children   had  no  -hesitation  about making   friends
.with' him.    It was no uufrequent thing  to see   him
coming off the boat or cars, with little ones who had
just formed  his acquaintance  tugging  at  his  coat-
tails, or, perhaps, with them or   their  belongings  in
his arms or on his shoulders.    And this was   not" an
election times development, but it was the same, day
in and day out.    And* no   matter  what his  enemies
said about him, one could not believe that a-man who
was so good to little people,could be averv bad  man
under anv conditions.
A voung lawyer was asked the other day whv in
the English courts a woman must remove her hat.
He could not answer the question. But an old
lawyer, to whom the matter was referred,, recalled
the opinion of Sir Edward Coke on the matter.
It was at a murder trial where tiie prisoner was a
woman and appeared beibre tiie court with' her
head covered. Sir Edward Coke ordered the woman
to remove her hat, and said :' "A woman ma v be
covered in church, but not when arraigned in a court
of justice." The accused tartly replied: " It seems
singular that I may wear rny hat in the presence of
God, but not in the presence of man .' ' '"It isn't
strange at all," replied the judge. " for the reason
that man, with his weak intellect, cannot discover
the secrets which are known to God, and therefore,
iu investigating truth.-where human life is in peril
and one is charged with taking life, the court should
have all obstacles removed. Besides, the countenance
is often   the index of the mind, and accordingly  it i
fitting that the hat should be removed and therewith
the shadow that it easts upon your face " The hat
of the prisoner was taken off, but she was allowed, for
modesty's sake, to cover her hair with a kerchief.
A lady correspondent writes a lengthy letter on the
habit of flirting, which seems to permeate female society in Nelson at the present time to an alarming ex
tent •   indeed some of-the  married ladies  appear to
have acquired the habit, but more about that in a fu*

amusement, and there ^re instances where it  in a v be

always that they wiuld invariably have the ■ hist. of.
the situation.   -It is a painful sight to witness a  girl
putting herself in- false .position vddh*^ and-' saying
foolish 'things,' letting go her.prestige.. justwiieu : ;;'he '■
ought to'he-holding  the  palm the-brightest;   And
many girls do'this, I am sorry to siy/ simply out ail
ignorance of some of the-features, of meir^ character'
which every woman reallv"should know..
One- of these things .that is necessary to knaw at id ■
firmly to grasp is that a 'man io thi se.sitbtuittal stage-/
of flirtation has'the tender feeling more- intermittently ■'
developed, than the girl ; his.niWKkof absorption hi ;
the.object of his temporary infatuation  come; and go.
while a girl who is'at all'tn love is apt to be in love alt
the time, without intermission/'   'Thus; it   happens '
that 'some of   her own   very interesting and'melting
moyods coincide   with'some   cooler   motncM'sof !ih:

softer   emotion that   for the-nonce   Is in   abeyance
Now,   an   inexperienced girl   can never   lake these
passing coolnesses of a man with whom'she h carrying on a flirtation in the right way.      She bridle**, or /
is offended, at him, or she  trie** iwhich h the   most
.fatal mistake of all) to force to the fore the sentimental, stale of mind iu him by that same state- of mind iu
herself.     And if there he-one-thing that-rules a man
the wrong way, that   Jensens   his ' respect' (or a girl, ■
ifi-it ii>K't*-^»<-! ^itfiHt.' A**it*-i*t*i. it*s finrfWiu*   if--i* .m evident
intention on her part, to make him  sentimental when
lie does not feel inclined to. l*c.
When a girl is smitten there is-practically   nothing
else in life for her, for the time feeing; but the man
she is smitten with and the scenes and atmosphere
in which he and she revolve. When a- man is
smitten he has the emotion with tremendous strength
(much.more tremendous than the girl any moment).
but there are all the same, other things for him m.
life. That is the difference. It is inherent m
human nature, and nothing can change it. And it
follows that the clever girl,, the ultimately most
successful and triumphant girl, is she who understands this distinction perfectly well, and whena^hc
finds that " the" man is in one of his " off" moods ;
much more taken up with other things—things that
claim the attention of his own sex than he is wit"
her, rises blithely ami brilliantly to theoeeasionand us-

«ri*i«"*"« THE NELSON ECONOMIST  ..O  : i  with pouts or aggrieved meins of wounded sensibility,  logins to show brisk interest in the topics that then  absorb him, and seems to be no more intent upon  sentimentality tnan he is. A girl who looks lovesick while the 111.111 in the question is a bit absent  minded, is really (t> a weak and absurd for works.  It is that sort of girl, depend upon it, who will lose  her lovers, whose influence and attraction will be short  lived and who will make a tremendous wife to the  husband.who fi nail v gets her.  The other kind of girl who takes the   bull by   the  horns, as it were,   who eizcs her   cue and never languishes   out   of season,   is the   one whose  running  vou can't back to any extent;   the one   whose swift  tact and strong self restraint   will carry   her with   a  high'head-and a serene front,    through   all the   tips  and downs of the   feminine career.     One of  the results of tact and self-restraint is   to teach a girl when  i* break away, too, when to withdraw a little ; when  to be. at any given   moment,   the first   one to cry   a  half; to change the current of   the   conversation,   to  end, a. scene.   This is the thing that should always lie  in. her hands.    She should never i How herself to wait  until the man takes the initiative.      When   he   does  so he is probably  already a  .little tired of the'.-'situation.     And   a gtrPs   prestige is gone if she  permit  fa'igue to declare itself  sail clear of many rocks ; she never brings ridicule  upon herself in any flirtation (a girl cannot afford to  make herself ridiculous under any circumstances);  she keeps the allegiance of her lover, when she has  one, in earnest; and, crowning and most difficult success for a woman, she retains her power over the respect and devotion of her husband*  I  :Yj.J  I have to make an apology for speaking favorably  of the Australian Novelty Company; which appeared  at the Nelson Opera House last week. Mr. Van  Gofre and his wife enjoy almost national reputations,  and I could scarcely conceive them as associated with  such a vile combination of spavined dive artists as he  brought here. With the exception of the "Ole  Olson" outfit that appeared here last spring, I cannot remember of having ever seen a worse "show.,r  And the orchestra was strictly in keeping with the  merits of the Novelty Company.  " The Coontown 400" was a pleasant relief from  the exasperation produced by witnessing the Australian Novelty Company. Atthough in many respects not equal to the Nashville Students, "The Coontown 400" give more of the real Southern minstrelsy.  The dancing was away above the average, tbe sing-  was jgood, and the selections on the banjo were really  artistic. "The Coontown 400" canalways feel  assured of a hearty welcome in Nelson.  That a girl should,   in all   ways,    hold herself  in  precisely the 'right attitude with   regard to the men  who may l>e interested iu   her depends very   largely  upon the state of her health in general.;   of her nerves  in particular.    If a gVl's nerves are shaky, hermoods  and emotions get the better of her, and'push her into  doing, saying and even looking   silly things,   when  her judgment would   really tell   her   clearly enough  to take another course.     For   the   nerves the   great  traitors, and make us all, when they are in a bad condition, unjust to   ourselves   at the instant   when we  least expect or desire it With   woman it is especially  so, and yet women precisely need particularly to hold  themselves iu full possession of their wits and faculties,  tor the wor d pardons sentimental blunders in a man,  [!it   never   in   a   woman.      Indeed,  it   pardons   no  l-lunders hi   her at   all.      Vet, as   I say, most of her  hluuders' come, not from her faulty judgment, but  :rn111 her nerves, which ;>!av her false.  The hockey matches between the Lacrosse and  Nelson clubs aroused considerable enthusiasm. We  have many good hockey players, notably Tom Duncan  of the Nelson team. On the Lacrosse side there are  two or three who could take places on first class  teams, but there is an evident inclination to ignore  the rules that govern clean hockey. There is altogether too much rough playing and the sooner it  is stopped the better. P. G.  The many people who knew Judge Senkler of St.  Catharines, will receive the news of his death with  deep regret. Deceased spent several days in Nelson  two years ago visiting his son Edwin, who was at  that time j unior member of the firm of Bowes & Senkler, barristers.  Keep, then,   ihc whole   system   in strong,   active,  working order ;   bathe regularly ; walk, live as much  av; possible   in   the fresh air;   eat   plain,   good, substantial food ;   do   not   indulge in very   late   hours.  Tins   regimen tones   the nerves, and to it I   should  ���If<<* to add a sort of   mental   regimen   for   the same  purpose���the avoidance of too much   poor literature,  the keeping of the mind free from weakening reverie,  1 he quick,   conscientious   performance  of. any duty  that lies ready to hand, and'a sound interest in some  :<��<>d ^study.     A   girl   who follows a   mode of   life  kishioAed after such  physical   and mental   pattern is  t'aeralily sure to have steady nerves, *nd therefor e to  "The Absent Minded Beggar" concert at Greenwood was Well patronized last Thursday night, and  realized over $500 for the Mansion House Fund.

In. addition to being a good shot  and by no means indifferent horseman, he holds  militia certificates unsurpassed, it is safe to say, by  no officer in the active militia of Canada. He holds  a First A certificate f bin the Infantry School at Frede-  ricton, and a similar one in artillery, taken at Work  Point, In the two courses which he took at the  latter place his rating was of the highest and he kas  abundantly demonstrated his readiness in practically  apylying his knowledge in the handling of troops.

Advance in Price.  (Vancouver World)  Tlie leading American newspapers, in consequence  of the sharp advance which has already taken   place  in the cost of white news print paper, and all material  entering into production of newspapers, have advanced  the price of   their   publications   considerably���some  even going so far as to   double the   rates.     The demand on the mills on both sides of the boundary is so  great for home and   foreign   consumption   that they  are utterly unable to meet  it.      Many mills in   reply  to inquiries as to cost and contracts for future delivery,  reply:    "Sorry, all our output contracted   for.      At  present cannot   quote   for   immediate  or   future delivery."     There is a dearth of news print; in. Europe,  Asia, Africa and Australia.

He  answered *4 in his dispatch box/1 of which the key  was attached to his watch chain, or,.at all events; he  hud it with him on the spot. The dispatch box was  brought out.. Lord Lytton oppened it, and there  was the ring.  This trick would be easy if the British officer was  a confederate of the juggler and if he possessed a  duplicate key to the dispatch box. In that case he  would not throw the ring into the well, but take it  into the house, open the box and insert the ring.  But tins explanation involves enormous improbabilities, while it is unlikely, again, that the conjurer  managed to insert a duplicate ring into the dispatch  bos beforehand*  Lord Lyttou then asked the juggler if he could repeat the trick.     He answered in the affirmative, and  a lady lent another ring. Another officer took it  with the seeds, as before, and dropped the ring into  the well. The countenance of the juggler altered in  the pause which followed. Something, be said, had  gone wrong, and he seemed agitated. Turning to  the second officer, he asked "Did you arrange  the seeds as I bade you ?" M No." said the officer ;  " I thought that was >A\ nonsense, and-I threw them  away." The juggler seemed horrified. "Do you  think I do this by myself?'' be said, and, packing  up, he departed.  The well was carefully dragged, and at last the  lady s ring was brought to the surface. That ring,  at least, had certainly been in the water. But had  the first ring been, as faithfully consigned to che  depths ? Experts will be of various opinions as to that,  yet the hypothesis of confederacy and of a duplicate  key to the dispatch box is difficult;  ���-> 'li  1     ��� -Ttr"     *- ' iTaH.*V.y����.*��!<!��� ,*����**��������*������� '  STARTLERS  j>* FKK'K&tW-  \yall Paper  P.

All day in his   canoe he had   battled with the  ice in the   river to reach   Stillwater to play, for- the  lumberman's dance.     His   crisp,   white hair   swept  over the old violin as he laid his face,   tanned  by the  wind and weather to the  brown hue of the   polished  wood,   against   it.     A.fanciful- er   poetic   observer  might   have called him   the spirit of   the bent and  twisted instrument.     But they were not much given  to poetry up there in that   northern   logging   camp.  Among the hundred'hoarse-throated., brawny-chested  Joggers but two had souls above the   waoagan���and  they were in, love.     So - Chippewa  Joe watched   the  fiddle through  half-shut  eyes, dreamily, and   Adam  Hill   beat   with   his foot  the   measures of the tune  listening betimes for the sound of coming sledges.  The room was long and low*. Kerosene lamps  smoked in their brackets against the unplas.tered  walls. Landlord Berger kept his broom in hand to  sweep back the snow which constantly sifted  through the crack under the door. It was the night  for the annual dance S,:fare the lo^s-were   sent down  the St.   Croix,   and the  loggers   were waiting  the  arrival of the ladies.  All at once tlie   crack   of runners   over the  snow  brought Adam to his feet.  ������They're coining!"   he shouted, and in a minute"  the men   were outside   shouting a   welcome     The  long sledges   drew up   at the door and the   muffled  bundles of femininity were sorted out and lifted down;  Adam and the   Indian stood   by one sled ���together  Four arms were stretched   toward a   Canadian   girl  ....wrapped in her suit of fur.     But with a 'faugh and *  spring she eluded them   and run up.the'  path to the  door.     Inside, the old Frenchtnauy'luued.,'hi*f fiddle  to.a mellower key,  and "in  a few. .momeuts more the  dance was going merrily; .
