The neglect of the Canadian mining industry by the late Laiwicr ad-  ministiation has become proverbial and strong: pressure is lo be brought  to bear on the new government for closer nttention to mining in the  Dominion. The following article from tbe Daily News, Fort William, is  sell explanatory:  >  "The agricultural and manufacturing interests have been assisted and  protected, while the mining intere'sts of ttt'e 'Dominion have been  neglected.  From 1900to 1909 inclusive, $6,342,086 has been expended \\y the  imm gration department to secure settlers for western Canada, and over  SS, 185,880 by the Depattment of Agriciiltnte, largely in the interests; of  iht farming community, and Dominion lands have been given as A  bom t) in .etllers at the rate of $10 per homestead, wlictcas if the lands  had boon sold .it lhe prices paid lo the lailvvay companies for adjoining  lands the Dominion treastny would hn\o received over 875,000,000,  whereas the geological department dining the last, ten years has expended SI,089,167, or at the rate of about $100,000 each jfear.  The in.iniifaettners are protected so that dirring the last [ten years  over 8408,000,000 has been Collected in customs dues on articles imported into Canada'. Out of the $13,771,796 paid in bounties on iron  and steel during the last fourteen yeais less than_$700,000 went to the  mine owners and ovet $13,000,000 to the maiuilacturcrs, the owners of  the blast furnaces and steel plants.  The blast furnaces and steel plants are now producing each year pig  iron and steel products worth over $12,000,000, and the plants tire being  materially increased in capacil), which should be a v ery satisfactoy  return lor the bounties paid out.  In 1903 a bounty of $15 per ton was authorised to be paid to the  mine owners for each ton of lead produced in Canada to assist the sil\er  lead mines owners of British Columbia. The amount ol" bounty payable  each year was limited to $S00,000 during those siv. yearsi produced  $23,718,083 worth of silver and lead, which was a most gratifying result  of that policv.  The iron mines of Canada should receive the same assistance. Each  mine should be paid $1 per ton on the first 100,000 tons of ore shipped  and smelted into pig iron, but provided tbat the bounties paid during  an) one vcar should not exceed $500,000, and the aggregate bounties  not to exceed $2,500,000 and no one company oi mine owner to receive  in the aggregate more than $100,000.  If the total bounty was paid it would mean nt least 25 iron mines  that in the aggregate would produce probably over 25,000,000 and be  instrumental in securing and in developing these numerovs iron ranges,  who.seanmi.il output-might .aggregate 40,000,000 "ttfiriH worth nearly  .$100,000,000 at the mines,  besides paving  nearly S50.0OO.O00 in freight  rates." ��� ��� - 7 .,  The ptovince cf British Columbia is well to ihc front in the extent  of its iron oie bodies and there need be nor qualms of fear that the pro  dnce of the Nova,.Scotia and Ontaiio mines would .swallow up the  bounties suggested. The known iron deposits of this province aie even  now enormous and there is no (elling wliat will yet be discovered when  a proper .ind systematic survev of hitherto unexplored districts take  plare. I.ivtic if any comment is pcce��-s-iry as to the quality ot R. C. iron  ores. The product of the To\ada Island mines which is treated in the  furnaces at lrond.de, Wash., is of excellent qirthtv and the iron produced  has rarelj been surpassed. #  Apart from tbe Texada Island iron mines, there arc the deposits at  Ciordoti river (San Juan,), Copper Island, Sarita ��i\er, Albeini canal,  Kennedy lake. Magpie lake. Head bay, Qtiatsino sound, on the west  coast of Vancouver Island, Rivet Inlet, on the mainland and the deposits  on the Oiiccn Charlotte Islands. N'e.irei home, large quantities are to  found near Kercmeos and if we are not mistaken there are the large deposits repoilcd b\ Dr. Dawson two miles trom Ward's crossing, not far  from Honnington falls On the coast there are extensive supplies of  limestone, suitable for flux and easily accessible.  The market of British Columbia and the Pacific coast is in itself  sufficient to maintain an iron and steel industrv, as the natuial conditions  for economical production ate probably without a parallel in anv other  part ol the world. The suggestion ol the above mentioned paper is well  worth the sciious consideialion ol the new ministei ol mines, while its  charge that the mining industrv of Canada has been wotull} neglected is  well founded and bevond dispute.

Mr. Kirkup had intended returning six weeks or so earlier, but was  obliged to remain on the field in  order to swear in each of the new  justices of the peace appointed to  administer Iiritish Columbia's laws  along the Grand Trunk Pacific construction line on lhe easierh borders of the province.  While aw.titing theircommissions,  Mr. Kirkup occupied himself in  cleaning out a nest of illicit liquor.  sellers, the camp followers of the  railway building army, collecting  approximately $1800 in fines during  his short stay on the frontier. He  also located several police stations,  awarded contracts and supervised  construction of the first two jails established in the Peace river'territory.  In   a report    which   he   has   just  made to   the  attorney-general,   Mr.  Kirkup   states  that    before   taking  leave of the Peace river district, he  administered the oath  and installed  in .office   Messrs.   Sugars,   McCor-  mick and McLaren,   officials   ofthe  G. T. P.   contract   forces, who had  recently received   commissions, Mr.  Mackenzie,   the    fourth   tecent   appointee, had gone "outside"  foi nn  indefinite period, in   consequence of  the serious   illness  of a member of  hN   family,   and  therefore   was  not  swore' in.  'A:   K.   Bouchler,   J.P.,  hadt  however, lately  arrived, in the  district   from   Fort   Ceoige,   andjs  now   located   at   Sand   Creek,   two  miles west from  Tetc Jaune Cache,  so that the administration  of justice  is   well   distributed  throughout   the  new district and along the- line upon  which the   railway construction will  shortly be advanced.  GREENWOOD WINS  FIRST HOCKEY MATCH  Grand Forks Team Outclassed���  Greenwood Wins 4 to 1.  The first league match in the  Boundary series took place en Monday, at Gieenwood, between the  team representing, that town and  the Grand Forks seven. There was  a fairly large attendance considering  the other New Year attractions. A  special From the, Forks carried  about 75, while Phoenix had a  similar number of representatives  on the gio'tnd. Both teams appeared to be in excellent shape, and  the opening phases of the game  showed lots of dash. There was an  entiie absence of rough play and  the various manoeuvres were  watched with genuine interest. The  Forks team, which was quite local  in character, was outclassed at almost every stage of the game, its  g'oal defence being its one redeeming feat it i e. Lynn, formerly of  Phoenix, was a -valuable acquisition  to the Greenwood bunch, his sensa-  sational breakaways being responsible in a great measure for the  final score ol -1 to 1 in favor of  Greenwood. A. C. Warren, manager of the B. C. Copper, proved a  fair and impartial referee.

It is in the following terms:  " I am giateful for the invitation  to extend through these columns -1  New Year's message to the people  of British Columbia, and gladly  avail mvselt of it. During the past  twelve months the province has experienced a wonderful growth in  population, industries and general  development; extensive railway construction and large additions to the  merchant marine have been necess-  iry to supply tbe demand for greater  transportation facilities, and on all  sides there has been a healthy and  well-sustained progress.  "For the year 1912 there is a  certainty of an inci eased impetus  along all lines that m:'.ke for  material advancement, and we may  look for a large influx of settlers as  well as the investment of vast  amounts of capital in the further  development of our natural resources. With this bright prospect  in view we may all, .with peace and  happiness surrounding us, enjoy a  bright and prosperous New Year."  Most sincerely,  RICHARD McBRIDE.

The Lawyer's Duty
One   died   of the   Los   Angelos
dynamiting   outrage   has   been    to
draw the   searchlight   of enquiry on
Clarence Harrow,   the  McNamaia's
chief   counsel,    and    to    raise    the
general question of a  lawyer's duty
to his  clients  and   bis duty   lo  lhe
state.      The   law   of  the   land  and
legal ethics   will settle   these questions nine  times out  of ten, but the
tenth time comes when  there seems
to  be   a   conllict. between   a   man's
duty as  a lawyer and   his duly as a
citizen.       In   the   jYlcNamara   case,
for example, Mr. Darrow knew   for
several    months   that   one    of   his
clients was guilty.      Knowing this,
he   continued to   fight   for  his freedom, spending   money like water in
his efforts,   and   it was  the money,
for   the   most   part,   of  men   who
would not have contributed a dollar
if they had known as much of James
McNamnra as Darrow knew.  There
'can be little doubt that if the agents
for the defence  could have bribed a
juror, or   if the   defence   could   not
have made an arrangement with the
prosecution,     .Mr.     Darrow    would
have   continued   to    fight    for   the
McNnmaras.       In   other   words   he
would have sought to  turn loose on
society again a  man who  had committed a series ofthe   most horrible
crimes in modern history.   In so doing,   Mr. Harrow   might   have  discharged his duty to his clients;   but
it is questionable if bis course would
have  been   that   of n   law   abiding
citizen.       It   would • seem,   in   fact,
that he would   be no better than an
accessory after the fact, and that he
too should  he sentenced   to  a term
of imprisonment.     Mot   only   would
McBride on  Yukon Absorption
The recent proposal that the
Yukon territory be absorbed by this
.province, is not by any means new.
The scheme was discussed at great
length in the federal House of Commons some years ago, and then as
now, opposed by the directly interested community through its representative In "Parliament, Dr. Alfred
Thompson. When interviewed a
few days ago, with respect to the
various bite newspaper references to
this, at all events interesting proposal, Hon. -Richard McBride, prime
minister of British Columbia, stated
that the proposal of annexation had
never emanated from this province,
at all events, since he hud been its
first minister, and that there was
quite enough to he done within the
borders of  this province   as  at pre
Railway Charter For Okanagan
In connection with recent references to present railway activity in
British Columbia, application has
just been made to the Minister of

is well understood to have been influenced by the recent purchase of

Taking into consideration that of all garments an Overcoat
is the most conspicuous—not for a week or a month hut for
every day throughout the Winter—is it not worth while to
select the most distinctive style you can find for your  price?
Our Overcoats are essentially garments of quality, and
represent the highest stage of perfection known to the art of
fine tailoring. We show the most tasteful weaves and

subverting tbe laws of (he land bv-j
I aiding criminals to escape justice.
Ought   a   lawyer   to   continue   lo
defend   a client whom he believes to
be guilty?    Ought he so to continue
to defend a man who has  confessed
to him that be is guilty?    In theory,
the duty of a lawyer to  his client is
to see that he gets a fair trial. However, that   is the  duty of the judge,
and if there   are not other duties, it
would    sdem    that    the   lawyer    is
superfluous, and that the judge and
other court officials might well lake
his place.     In discussing the case of
the   McNamaras,   the Seattle   Post
Intelligencer   expresses    the    belief
that a lawyer who violates the confidence a client  places   in   him is to
be classified   with  the medical man
who   commits. the same   breach  of
etiquette with   regard-to   a patient
Nevertheless it rebukes Mr. Darrow
for trying   to   shield men whom  he
knew were  guilty.     Without violating  their    confidence,   how    could
Darrow   have   thrown up   the  case
for the. defence?    He seems to have
chosen lo play the part of an enemy
to the   slate rather   than   that   of a
traitor to his wretched clients.   The
public opprobrium   that    has    been
visited on him in the past fortnight,
is evidence that in the opinion of the
great majority of people, he made a
wrong chcice.     The general verdict
is that a   lawyer's   first   duty   is   to
justice, of which   he  is  supposed to
be a minister.---Mail and Kmpitc
Provincial Redistribution
Several references have recently
appeared in the provincial press
as to the possible presentation of a
redistribution bill, based on the
recent census returns, al the forthcoming session of the local legislature, in connection with which it
may be staled, that, although the
matter litis as yet received no formal consideration by the cabinet, it
is highly improbable that a measure
of this nature will be regarded as
necessary or desirable at the present
juncture. Representation of a population of less than half a million by,
42 members may be regarded as
numerically quite sufficient, while itj
is deemed the policy of wisdom to

THE   PIONEER,  PHOENIX,  B.C.
The Sequel to the Dream of
Little Miss Mouse.
By KEITH GORDON.
• The partition. was not very thick,
and the girl often heard him whistling
or Hinging in the next room. Ills rep-
.ertory vvns extensive nnd confusing,
"She's the neatest girl that ia, und i
need her In niv hi?.." would flout In to
her, followed perhaps by the btralnsof
"Samson et Diillln" or some music
equally line.
. One knew the sort of man who
would sing coon songs with guHto;
.also tlio sort that would hum liltB
.from the grand operun. The puzzling
ithlng vvaa to know what sort of mau
would take an impartial delight In
both. So In the Intervals of her work
;bIio begun to speculate about her un-
iknovvn neighbor.
At the end of two months she tabulated her knowledge of blm. lie was
•gay and debonair. Witness the scraps
of song Hint floated In to her. He was
.carelessly litdhTcrcut to women. This
Bho gleaned from the fact that live
idnys out of seven she could hear blm
"tunefully asserting-.
If alio be not fair to me.
Wlmt euro 1  liow fnlr sue bot
lie smoked Invcierntely—n pipe, she
funded. Sometimes the faint, elusive
•nplrlt of the thing seemed to float
'jibout her hall bedroom, nnd she
si.^ed again and again, her small
bead veil In tho air, but could never
•be quite" sure. Tbe partition bore her
startled scrutiny Irapertiu-bably, but-
well, she was sure she studied smoke.
He was about thirty. This she divined from the freshness of his voice
and his boyish delight In the chatter
of the elderly chambermaid, whose
Irish wit would send him Into peals
of laughter.
Also he was a man of the world,
since she beard him come in early
many evenings nnd move about his
room as if dressing for dinner. TheD
at half past 0 or 7 he would go out
.again, leaving her with on absurd
■sense of desolation.
They never encountered each other
in the halls, much to ber satisfaction,
but she came to have a very distinct
iden of his appearance. He was tall,
■broad and straight, with a clear cut
Iface and an air of knowing, his way
'about.
"Sure, an' he's a folne glntleman."
•Maggie Informed her once: but. though
she might have verified her idea of
him. she refrained with a line sense of
.personal reserve. Sometimes through
the open door she caught a glimpse of
this room, and her interested eyes took
;ln the dark green walls, covered with
.handsome photographs, tbe low bookcases on either side of the fireplace
and the low. broad table with Its Utter
wf books and papers.
"It certainly looks as if he were an
interesting man." she thought to her-
nelf. and thereupon she entered her
.owu room, and. taking out a sheet of
paper bearing the mystical heading
"My Knight In Spain." she wrote:
"Evidently educated—a college man;
profession, law. literature or something of the kind."
"Maggie. Is there any one in tbe next
room'/" she heurd him inquire one Sunday morning. Then In answer to Maggie's mufHed reply: "Utile Miss Mouse,
1 should call her. I didn't know there
was any one there, though once or
twice I've thought I heard some one."
The girl blushed guiltily. Apparently he had no idea how plainly she
could hear him. Then she smiled to
herself. So he would call her I.lttle
Miss Mouse. Well, it was fair enough,
since she called him her gentlemau of
Spain.
For awhile after this she noticed a
decided effort on her uelgbborv part to
go softly. In tbe midst of a stave be
would cease abruptly, only to begin
afresh and stop again wlrb an impatient exclamation, as if he were annoyed at not bdng able to remember
to be quiet. At all of which, in the seclusion of ber room. Little Miss Mouse
laughed immoderately, though iu silence.
Then one morning Maggie found her
In bed. ber usually pale face flushed.
her heavy hair covering tbe pillow in
a tossed nnd tangled mass.
"It's nothing, but perhaps you'd better get a doctor:" gasped -Miss Mouse.
"My head's so queer, aud. oh. I'm so
warm I"
Soon after a serene faced nurse In a
striped uniform and white apron was
Installed lu the room, and to ner I.lttle
Miss Mouse, down with bruin fever,
talked an uneudliig Jargon.
"If you can bave a castle In Spain
you can certainly have a knight iu
Spain, can't you?" she demanded over
and over again.
"Of course you can." soothed the
nurse.
"I'd be very lonely If be vanished,
os/castles In Spain do." she said at
another time, with wistful, puzzled
eyes. "You don't think he will vanish, do you? Hera use I'm all alone
here. He's the only person I really
know.
"Don't you ever tell, upon your honor." she' rambled on. "It's very
Btrange. I don't Just understand It.
but actually I have never seen him!
Can you believe It. I've never seen
htm. and yet I know him so well? I
don't understand It. and my head is
splitting.   Hold It:   Hold It!"
The man In the next room was very
quiet these days. From Maggie be
had learned of the little artist's 111
ness. and from her also he heard of
the strange hallucination about the
man In Spain. When she told him he
shot a quick, piercing look ironi h.s
deep set eyes, but evidently there was
no connection in ber wind between tbe
sick girl's iniicy and  himself.
Instinctively he knew the truth.
"Poor little girl." be mused, "lonely,
struggling, with nothing to feed her
lovu of companionship and romance
upon but the sense of fellowship with
the unseen occupant ot the next room!
It Is well that she hasn't sevn this ugly
mug of mine." he concluded grimly.
So he fell Into the way of stopping
to Inquire about In.!' of the nurse each
morning   and   then   of   sending  great
bunches or violets, upen wnicn tne sick
girl's half conscious eyes rested later
on with dreamy pleasure,
"Who picked them?" were her first
Intelligent words when the fever left
ber and she became herself. Then,
realizing where she vvns and what bad
happened, she laughed weakly and corrected herself, "Who sent them, I
mean?"
At the reply a faint color crept Into
her cheeks, and she murmured something the nurse did ijpt catch.
Then came the days when she sat
up, feeling like a new creature come
to a pew world, though In appearance
she was tnor» than ever like a frail
child.
"Come In: I think she would like to
thank you," said the nurse when one
dny the man stopped lo miike bis usual Inquiry, and a moment later lie was
standing before I.lttle Miss Mouses his
heart thumping at the gaze of two
dark fringed eyes that reminded him
of violets.
She stammered out her thanks,
scarcely knowing what she snltl. so
great was her astonishment, for. In
fact, the knight In Spain, whose face
she thought she knew as well as hot
own, was dark and most tnicoiiipromisingly ugly. Besides, he was old-
forty If he was n day—and—nnd—
In another moment her surprise was
forgotten. A big. strong hand was
holding hers, and the voice that she
liked so much vvns speaking. There
was u vibrant tenderness In II that she
hud never noticed before—that seemed
personal, that suggested, outlandish as
the Idea was. that to her of all the women lu the world would be ever speak

It was on their honeymoon that,
longing to hear over and over again
the beautiful truth, he questioned:
"You're sure you don't regret marrying nu ugly brute like me?"
She laughed softly, laying her cbeek
against his. but she did not speak.
With quick puln he pulled the face
down where he could look into tbe

The Meaning of Million*.
In astronomical calcu.uiioiis it is
most difficult to grasp the meuning of
millions of miles, but some Idea iu this
connection may be gathered from tbe
statement of the time that would be
consumed by an. express train or tbe
shot from a cannon to cover celestial
space. Now, the distance from the
earth to tbe huh is about 02.000.000
miles, and light traveling from the
solar luminary comes to us at the rate
of 1S0.700 miles a second In vacuo. It
traverses this distance in eight and a
qunrter minutes, but a railway train
proceeding at sixty miles an hour
would take 175 years to cover the distance to the sun. The circumference
of the ellipse forming the orbit of the
earth around the sun Is about G77.7C0,-
000 miles in length, nnd tbe earth covers this distance In 3(j5>4 days, traveling at the rate of <V>.Q10 miles an hour
or 1.098 miles a minute, or nearly 1.100
times as fast as a train going nt a
mile a minute. It Is therefore clear
ihnt n train proceeding at this speed
would require nearly l.lOu years to accomplish the journey around the
earth's orbit.—London Tlt-Blts.

Hard Penance In Mexico.
The    Mcxlcnns     are    extremely    religious,    and    their    faith    enters    into
their dally  lives   to  a   remnrksble extent.     During   floly   Week   the  native
women who are anxious to do penance
for their sins go on  their  knees  from
one shrine to another, devoting hours
to the painful task.    At this time temporary shrines are set np. and  in tne
remote   villages   it   is   no   infrequent
sight   to  see   half  a   dozen   parties  of
penitents    traveling   iu   this   manner
over the sharp stones nnd gravel from
one sbrlne to tbe other, apparently oblivious to the burning rays of the sun
and the discomforts of their progress.
Sometimes   nn   attendant   spreads   a
serapo or blanket before them to protect   their   knees,   but   this  is  considered to detract from the merit of the
penance,  nnd  most  of the  women-It
Is always the females who undertake
the task—go through with it scorning

Millie Averted  a  Tragedy ana

By   MARTHA   M'C.-WILLIAMS.
If Millie had not worn her blue gown
the story might have been different
Whether It whs the color or the llulT
of It or the way It clung to and molded
her slim suppleness nobody could sny.
but the fact was patent-somehow li
transformed her from a very pretty
girl Into nn elllaud queen. Millie vvns.

dark eyes and hair of the palest gold
Small wonder In the blue gown she
swept John Eustace off his feet nnd
made blm forget some things lie ought
to huve remembered Ills betrothed.
Alice Ulllson, for example.
Alice was as good as tier plentiful
gold, but stubby, 'dull colored nm!

above all things, dutiful. Duty was.
indeed, the enrly rout of her love lor

Her father had marrleil In a III ot
plipie when lie was on Hie edge of seventy. He lived to see Ills daughter
nine years old and lo Impress upon liet

and so keep tlie money In the Klllson

he had never repined. ,\n only child
and motherless, tie bad grown up his
father's Intimate comrade. Thus wo
men. especially young women, had nev
cr worn for hltn the roseate glamour
of unschooled youth. Still his fathei
had by no means tried to put an old
bead upon young shoulders nor ti
bred in his son contempt for woman
kind. It was only that lore unci worn

reckoned mere episodes beside l lie rush
and scurry of truly manly pursuits
Marriage was honorable In all men
marriage with Alice would tie thrio

when she came to eighteen John had n
certain satisfaction In putting the ring
upon her finger and even chafed a III
tie over the fact that by tier father's
express desire she was to stay single
until she was one nnd twenty.
He honestly believed himself In levi
nnd truly felt for her a lender fend
ness tbnt had begun when, a sturdy
little lad. he had guided her tottering
baby steps. He meant always to guide,
guard and cherish her as lieeame n
gentleman, even though In his swelling
visions of the future she was no more
than a dumb, submissive shade. It
she would never be a brilliant figure,
still less would she be one of whom ti
husband must ueeds be ashamed. In
deed, he was altogether :> little more
than content with the ordering ot
things until six months before tits wed
ding day   he came  under   Millie's spell
He saw her first upon a miring nmrn
Ing full of hot. shining and languid
ruffling airs, pew still sparkled on th-
grass. and overhead in tbe green gold
of new leafage robins fluted delicately
tbe Joy of life and love. To his en
chanted eyes Millie embodied the shin
knew herself Its rei'il root. The men
must not light. She could not have
her brother's blood upon tier conscience. Rtlll less her lover's. There
was but one way to stop them, a way
bitterer than deniti. Still, she set her
feet toward It unfaltering.
She got up and sal by the window,
watching with noteless eyes the wheeling stars, the waning moonlight. Hut
at the first pale dawn light she was
tensely alive. Below she beard a
stealthy stir, the cautious opening of
a door, with muUled voices and cautious steps outside. She got up and
crept to her brother's room, Lighted
candles mill glittered lhern. Upon tbo
table there was a brief will, the ink
not dry In the heavily scrawled signature. Beside It was a briefer statement: "Let It be understood of nil men
If I die I shall huve died in n man's
quarrel, founded on no personal grudge,
but resenting unjust aspersions upon
my native state." She almost smiled
over It. The native stale counted to
Joo for so very little in tlie ordinary
course of life.
Twenty minutes later. Just as tlio
sun peeped over rimming trees, she
came out in a little clearing upon a
wooded hilltop nnd saw two men
standing vveniiori In hand, face to face,
ten yards apart. Three other men a
Utile way off had scared, white faces,
but neither combaiant had lost wholesome color. Millie sprang between
them, white as a dawn wraith, hut
with eyes like glowing coals. Shu
Hung up her arms and said clearly:
"Klre. gentlemen I If anybody deserves doatli I do!"
"Millie, go backl" Joe Cnntroll thundered. Eustace dropped Ills pistol and
leaped lo the girl's side, In ber ear
lie whispered brokenly: "Darling, let
blm kill mo. It Is tbe best way out of
It all."
Millie Rhrnnk from him a little.
"There Is no need for bloodshed," sue
said. Then, raising her vol-e so tne
•seconds could bear: "I call all here to
witness that 1 have not been deceived.
I knew at the very first of John Eus-
tnce's betrothal. We have done no
wrong to anybody. We—we love each
other because we cannot help It Oh.
It is hard that my own brother brings
me to such open shame!"
"Come home." Cnntrell snld muchly,
flinging away his pistol and clutching
her arm. Eustace caught the other
band, saying: "Stay with me. Millie:
The whole world may go if I nave
you!"
"Cioodby." Millie said, drawing uwny
her hand. "1 shall love you always,
John, but your wife need not be jealous."
•        •••»*«.
By tbe strange orderlngs of fntethnt
was a true word. John Eustace went
straight to Alice and told tier all the
truth. She gave hltn hack his freedom nnd .vould have given him Halt
ber mouey ouly he would not have It.
But be could not persuade Millie to
marry   him   until   Joe.   the   masterful.

Sticks to Telephone  "Since I ho sy.stem vviis..,installticl,  it has worked womlei fully," siticl a  C.P.R. official yet.ten.hiy in response  to tt tjiuiry roj,'iucling ;i rumor that  had spread .that the company was  not satisfied; with its new system of  despatching trains hy telephone.  "There was a report circulated,"  said James Kent, manager of C.P.R.  telegraphs, "that the company was  considering the advisability of going  back to the old system, but lhe idea  is absurd. Since .despatching by  telephone was inaugurated. It has  been distinctly successful, and in  every way superior U> lhe old  method of despatching by telegraph. "  The electrical engineer of the company, \V.  J.   Camp, was   indignant  at llu; idea thin the C.P.R. intended  doing away with its   newly installed  telephone system.      "All one has lo  i\o," s.'iid   Mr.    Camp,    "to   understand how  thoroughly the company  believes in  the  despatching by telephone, is to  take cognisance  of lhe  iHimber of miles of new circuits now  being   installed    each   year.      Next  year   they   intended   lo   add    about  1200   miles   of  new   circuits.     The  appropriation   for the work   has not  yet been made,   but    l(X)0 miles is a  conservative estimate of the amount  lo be   installed.      Most   of this new  milage is to be   on western lines, as  the main lines of lhe eastern division  are   now   practically   all   using   the  telephone   .system.     The.   apparatus  will   be   installed    on    the   Ottawa  short line, .'but the rest ofllie installation  will   probably   take place on  the    lines    west    of   Fort   William.  When next year's installations have  been   made,   the   C.P.R.   will   just  about lead lhe world in   the number  of miles equipped with the telephone  circuits.     Already it has 4000 miles,  which places, it second on the list of  railroads using    this   system,    and  makes it easily the leading   railroad  in Canada in this respect.

How to make our Phoenix hens  lay in the winter has strained many  a think tank, but after all its very  simple.

The result was surprising. From the temperance hens  he.secured only 27 eggs, but the  boozers responded nobly, producing  175 eggs in the same period of time,  so that the topers showed an excess  of production over the teetotallers of  148 eggs.  pjm7nion"ft\x>ni"^  Januury, 1912, at 12 o'clock noon, for  the purpose of electing' persons to represent them in tho Municipal Coun/;il  as Mayor and Aldermen, and School  Trustee for the Phoenix School Dis  triot.
