What Revelstoke, Fislr creek and  tlie Lardeau country need is a promotion company with ample capital to  exploit their many resources. By this  is not meant a company such as those  promoted by "Whitaker Wright antl  *<ithers,-wlio.3u'sole-motive=has-lieen=tor  hleed the shareholders. The company,  when formed, should be conservative  in its management, honest to its  shareholders'���������and be represented - by  competent representatives in this  province thoroughly acquainted with  local conditions and nhlo to grasp at  once every opening for remunerative  investments.  Take the various mining camps.  Undeveloped properties of groat  promise can be secured now for pi ices  much less than ^formerly. - Prospectors are beginning to realize that a  claim with only one or two assessments performed on it must be sold at  11 moderate figure to secure a purchaser. In the Fish creek country, at  Clout mountain, Lexington mountain,  JOoyd creek and other localities there  are showings startling in their rich-  near future. Thoso who buy wisely  and hold or manufacture will make  money and lots of it. From -Lillooet  cast to the eastern slope of the  Rockies the whole prairie will iu the  future be supplied. Although steadily  growing, the lumber trade is in its  infancy and recent heavy purchases  by men -of experience in eastern  lumber- centres show that- tlrey are  turning their eyes to tbe forests of  British Oil'iniliiii. Limits can be  secured now at half the figure they  will fetch in a very few yeais and any  company able to take the matter up  effectively, unhampered by the wnnl  of a few thousand dollars, will gather  a plentiful harvest of profit on their  original outlay.  Jin the purchase of real estate there  are also opportunities for most satisfactory investment. Not only by the  unearned    increment,   but "algo. bv  ness the owners of which have not the  capital to; prove the continuity, with  depth, of the veins. Such a "^company  as suggested ��������� could, tinder proper  advice, obtain several such properties  and. develop them. Proving their  value subsidiary companies could be  formed to take oyer partially developed claims that bid fair to become  porrnanent mines tlie parent corporation holding an interest commensal ate with their value. Such a  scheme would work well all over the  Province. There rirp other creeks  near Poplar believed to bo equally rich  as ' the Iato discovery.. Meadow,  Tenderfoot and ; others should be  exploited in n systematic milliner and  any company taking up this work  conservatively and under competent  management would assuredly reap  rich rewards..'  Then thero is lumbering industry.  It is making great strides now but  progress  will lie tremendous  in thc  building and leasing and ''renting, a  large margin of profit can be made,  ltevelstoke, for instance, as .1 field for  real estate purchasing is not speculative, it is assured by the satisfuctoiy  progress of the city. Lots have  doubled iu value within the Inst year,  aud increased ten times in five. And  the cry is still for more buildings. A  company ablo to purchase nnd build  would Hnd a market ready nt hand  either for profitable sale or leasing.  And Revelstoke is nut tho only city  in which sueh satisfactory results can  be obtained. Kvery town of any  importance in the Province is on thr;  rise and. though for a period values in  some instances' wore inflated, they  have now reached a normal figure and  property purchased now may be  relied upon to increase rapidly in  value. These are only a few of the  many directions open for profitable  investments. In any and all of them  a company having competent officials  could make the hearts of its share-  halders glad with regular and increasing dividends.  Such a'company should not be local  in its scope. It should embrace every  portion of British Columbia. The  instances we give are merely by  way of illustration, the opportunities  arc iill over, from Hector to Victoria  and the Flathead Valley to Chilkat.  Those able to promote such a company  should do so without delay. Capital  is what the Province rreeds* and those  supplying it will have only themselves  to blame if their investments do not  prove more than satisfactory. Tbe  conditions' precedent, however, are  ample capital, a management conversant with local conditions, careful  investigation before purchasing and a  reliance on local men who kuow tbe  Province rather than an arm chair  directorate irr some far away city.  These .conditions being fulfilled such a  promotion company as we suggest  would bo not only' <i boon to the Province but a bonanza to its shareholders. 1  LAURIER IS  THE TRAITOR  His Speeches caused the Alaskan Boundary Commission to  Decide against Canada���������Part  of the U. S. Case.  One of the cliief witnesses for the  United States before tho Alaskan  Boundary Com mission was Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Premier of Canada. He  was rrot present in person but the  counsel for the country opposing  Canada took care that his speeches, as  recorded in Hansard, were presented  Lo the Commission in support of the  United Stales' claim.  Foremost among those give away  speeches, conceding what is now the  Alaskan lisiere to our neighbours to  the south was one delivered in defence  of the Yukon railway proposition by  which Mackenzie and-Mann were to be  made millionaires' at the expense of  Canadian taxpayers' pockets. It was  suggested by the Conservative party  that the outlet of the railway in question should be at a point at the.head  of the Lynn Canal, so that Canada's  pretensions to. the inlol heads should  be accentuated. But Sir Wilfrid  Liui'ier would have bone of this. In  order to provide an argument against  a political opponent he conceded the  whole United States case. He cared  not for Canada so long as the Grits  could remain in power. And so, from  his place on the floor of the House he  male the following statements:  "The fact remains that from time  immemorial IJ)yea was in the possession of the Russian?, and in 1807 it  passed into tbe hands of tbo Americans, and   it   bis   been  held in their  hands ever since. So far  as   1   am   aware   no  protest has ever  been entered against the occupation of  Dyea   by   the   American  authorities,  arid when American authorities are in  possession of that strip of "territory on  tho sea which has  Dyea as its harbor,  succeeding the possession of the Russians   from   time   immemorial, it becomes manifest to everybody that at  this moment  we cannot dispute their  possession.    .    .        .   .   .   .     Under  such circumstances Dyea is practically  irr American territory���������at all events  in possession of the Americans, and,  therefore, if we had "undertaken to  build a railway from Dyea to the  Yukon country we would have been  placed at the mercy of the American  authorities with regard to the bonding privilege."  These statements can be verified in  Hansard. They are Laurier's own  words. Acting as the responsi hlc head  of the Canadian Government he conceded absolutely the United States  claim. Some people blame Lord Alverstone for the recent decision.  Could he act otherwise than he did  after having placed before him the  declaration of the Canadian Premier  that the United States contention was  right?  The real traitor was Sir Wilfrid  Laurier and we have him alone to  thank for Canada's defeat. The speech  quoted from formed part of the United  States case. Canada's premier gave  evidence against^Cajiadiu Let us not  Tlie  NOW SILVER AS  WELL AS GOLD  Remarkable Discovery of Native  Silver at the Oldest Location  ��������� on Poplar Creek���������The Whole  Town Stampedes.  (Special to Tub Heiia������d.)  Poplar, Nov. 2.���������Tho richness of  this enmp is not confined to free gold  as an important discovery of free  silver was made the other day. This  occurred on the Spyglass group, owned by John Winqui.st, one of the oldest  locators in this section and the richness of whose properties attracted the  attention of .Marquis, Gilbert*, Morgan,  Hamilton and others towards the  vicinity of Poplar creek. In fact, it  has beerr alleged that Hamilton wa.s  on his way to tlio Spyglass when he  ran across his famous discovery, the.  Lucky .lack. This, however, lias been  denied.  Thi. Spyglass group was located in  ISOli and consists of three claims situated 11 miles up the creek near its  head. The latest find win made in tho  course of drifting oil a vein showing,  besides free silver and gold, gioy  copper, zinc and lead. ."���������The. specimen  brought here by Winquist weighs  about five pounds and. is bespattered  with free gold and silver and is undoubtedly equal, if not superior, to tiie  remarkable free gold quart's that has  attracted so much attention wherever  exhibited.' Winquist is known as a  reliable man .and states that he has a  paystreak from 12 to 1*1 inches in tho  centre of -11 loot vein of white quartz.  Immediately*" "the.; new find was  known the town waa deserted. Everyone hoped to' secure vsome vacant  ground* near the Spyglass but practi  cally everyone was disappointed.

Rich Ledge of Free Milling  Quartz on Silver Dollar���������  Goat Mountain Looking well  ���������Fish River News.  (From Onr own Correspondent.)  CAMnoiiNE, B. C, Nov. 2.���������In addition to the. recent discovei ies on Goat  mountain a new strike has been made  in the vicinity of Mohawk creek, on  the Silver Dollar. This well known  group was the property of the Into  Joseph Best and several Revelstoke  men are also intoiesled in it. The  new strike wa.s made while assessment  work was being done under the direction of Mr. it. A.

On the .Big Showing an 85-foot  tunnel has been driven and the lodge  exposed is equal in width to tho low  grade veins of the Boundary, averaging over 120 feet. It was intended to  work the property .continuously but a  fire that burnt up all tools and supplies caused suspension of operations  for the present.

Moreover, we are led to rejoice in  the larger revelation of God, for each  footprint grows more distinct as one  follows another. As there have been  always in existence the electrical powers of nature, but not revealed fully  until man reached intellectual strength  sufficient to lay bold upon their energy  and utilize them for his best interests.  so God has revealed Himself as men  grew into larger liie and light. More  and more God has made Himself  known through prophets of old.  through thc life 3������d words and death  of Christ, through .-.aims and martyrs  to the cause of righteousness and truth.  We rejoice in the fact of ''Emmanuel���������  God with us," written on the page  of history and in th~ hearts of men.  Our God" lives and dwells among us |  now.  The thought of "Emmanuel" ought  to make us brave. The abiding presence of God should give us courage,  ���������faith and hope, ior "ii God be for us."  ���������' and With us, "'Who can be against us?"'  JNo temptation need be too strong to  be conquered, no difficulty need be too  hard to be surmounted, no sorrow need  cause us to bury our hearts and liver,  in the graves of our loved ones, for it  will eventually be with us as wr!.h them.  "From grief and groan, with a golden  crown, close by the throne of God."  God in us will graduate our strength  ior every experience of life through  ���������which we shall pass, and omnipotent  power will be under every care', and  burden. Thus we may bravely go into lire's work as warriors ������������������ to battle.  Our Father, having taken our cause to  His heart, ought to bring a similar  action; from us in His behalf. For  there is a great, battle on between  righteousness and unrighteousness.  The trumpet which musters the warriors soumleth loud and long, and the  fight will be stern and desperate between truth and sin. Wc must take  our post, every one,; on one side or  the other, for "If the Lord be God.  follow Him : but if Baal, then follow  him." No touch or thought of com-  ' promise; no division of the living child,  as in the days of Solomon, by a wicked woman : no acceptance of a particle  of oil," says a horseman. "This  should be applied to those parts which  the animal cannot reach with its head  or tail. The preparation can be applied to the young fouls as well as the  brood marcs. Crude carbolic acid  should be used, as it is stronger than  the solution usually sold by druggists."  Always give horses water before  fteding, whether morning, noon, or  night. Do this, because a horse will  digest his food better, be stronger, anil  will last the longer for it. Colic or  acute indigestion, a common and often fatal trouble with horses, is avoided by watering before feeding. But  three limes a day is not often enough  to. water horses when at work and in  hot weather. Fi.ve or six times a day  is not too often under such conditions  and the horse is heller, fresher, and  can do more without injury to itself if  watered often.  Vegetable Crops Under Cover.  Several interesting experiments are  being conducted this year in the horticultural department of thc Central  Experimental l-.ai in, Ottawa, by the  horticulturist. W. T. JMacoun. One of  these experiments is the growiirg of  vegetables iu an enclosure the top,  sides and ends of waiclr-are made oi  .cheese cloth, as compared with growing them in the open. air. The object  is to determine what difference there  will* be in lime of maturing and'in the  tenderness oi some of the vegetables.  The kinds of vegetables used in this  experiment are radishes, lettuce, bce.ts,  beans, carrots, tomatoes; cucumbers,  watermelons, muskm'clons, cauliflower,  egg plant and corn. The results of  this experiment* will, be published in  the annual report of the farm, but already several interesting facts have  been noted. The temperature is at  ���������times several degrees higher in the  enclosure, the 'greatest-difference being  at night, which is very favorable to  plants that succeed but* in hot weather.  During heavy storms the, rain comes  through the cloth as a thick mist, and  the soil is hence not compacted as  much as outside. Radishes were ready  for use three days earlier inside,** and  were perfectly free irom maggots.while  those outside" were rendered almost  worthless on account of them.    Cauli-  Butlers in the old houses of the British aristocracy, writes the Marquise dc  Fountenoy, in The New York Tribune,  have always enjoyed a certain amount  of prestige and respectability, and their  loyalty and  devotion  to  the  interests  of the families in whose service   they  have grown  grey    furnish    a  favorite  theme in those  of the popular novels  of the last hundred years that deal with  the  English  nobility.    Thc  species   of  halo thus acquired in the eyes  of the  general public by these usually rather  impressive  leaders  of high life  below  stairs  is  likely to  be    rendered    still  more   effulgent   by   thc  announcement  that the late Thomas Couchman, who  died  at the age of nearly seventy,  as  butler of the Earl of Ravensworth, has  left a fortune which, according to the  records of the Probate Court, exceeds  $150,000.    His entire life, or rather,  I  should say, the whole term of his domestic service, extending over a period  of nearly half a century, has been spent  in  the employ of thc family of Lord  Ravensworth, -aad the estate which he  has left represents not merely his savings, but also the result of several very  fortunate    investments,    and    likewise  three  substantial  legacies.    How  fortunes oi this kind can be accumulated  by servants who remain for long numbers  of years in the employ    of    the  great  houses  of  the  English  nobility  was  shown  some  time    ago,    in   thc  course  of  certain   legal    proceedings,  during which a footman in the service  of  Lord    Northcote    testified    under  cross-examination  that,  although    his  wages did not exceed $300 a year, yet  his  place  was  worth    ?3,ooo    a  year,  thanks to  the  tips  which he  received  from his master's guests, and likewise  to occasional gifts and perquisites from  members of the Earl's family.    It will  be seen from this that, after all, there  are some compensations in the life of  a domestic servant,    especially    when  one rises to the eminence of butler in  one of the old houses  of the English  nobility,   with  free  access    to    cellars  that are often of national celebrity, and  the    satisfaction    derived    from      the  knowledge that one is,  after all. part  and parcel of that time-honored institution known as the English aristocracy.  Cartridges as Money.  For a great number of years salt  bricks and Maria Theresa thalers have  formed the only currency of Abyssinia, says Commercial Intelligence.  It appears, however, that the salt  bricks, representing the minor forms  of currency, have lately been more or  less superseded in the financial  transactions of everyday life by cartridges. This is undoubtedly due to  the great affection of the natives for  their firearms. In all the markets'of  Northern Abyssinia, more especially  in Adua and Makalle, the native dealers are displaying alongside their  sugar-loaves and pieces of soap long  rows of glittering cartridges which  serve the same purpose as the contents of an English merchant's cast  box.

Mr. MacKinnon's  forthcoming bulletin on the export  apple trade will deal with this question, and the fruit division will show  at Toronto Exhibition a model brand  for  apple barrels.  The plan of placing a slip with the  packer's number in each package lias  been largely used by tobacco and  other dealers, and has proved a safeguard to the wholesaler or exporter.  For instance, it has been found in previous years by apple exporters that  barrels bearing their brand and marked as put up by a certain boss packer, say JMo. 60, were in great demand.  while goods similarly branded except  that they were marked as put up by  another packer, say No. 48, were not  wanted.

Here Is the servant question, for Instance, which hns appeared  at times to darken the whole horizon of  woman, ' and beside whoso tyranny the  tyrant man sinks Into Innocuous desuetude. And, lo! says a writer In Harper's  Bazar, a Massachusetts woman, grappling  with the real, the truly vital statistics In  the case, tells us lire groat, soothing fact  that S3 per cent, of the women of.America do not keep servants at all. Only  1.7 per cent of our sisters sit In. the  shadow of the servant question to-day.  Even though that shadow bo dark indeed, and still darkening, four-fifths-and  more of the homes of America are still  rejoicing in light and'liberty.

A cold bath ls n better  remedy, and much simpler. It Is within  tho reach of every person. A bathtub is  not necessary, though very desirable.  The water should bo as cold as possible  to produce the desired effect, especially  should this be tho case with the victim  of insomnia. He should shock himself,  nnd thus drive lire Insomnia away.

Thus there was no fenr that the precious  tiara might adorn tho galleries of the  British Museum, and remain as a reminder of a new  victory  of England over*  France.   There were some sceptics, however, who were, not quite convinced that'  the  articles  purchased   by   the  Louvre  were quite so old as they were claimed  to be; who believed, even, that their age  might be expressed more accurately with;  one  figure, or perhaps  with  two,  than;  with four.   The tiaru, however, brilliant-'  ly glittered, dazzling the multitude from!  the top of an isolated -pedestal, until the'  ^German      archaeologist    JPuertwnengler.  published over liis own signature a. dis-'  scrtation maintaining by the aid of most'  serious arguments that the famous headpiece was entirely spurious and most hu-'  milintingly  modern.      The   controversy:  went on for a while, for the tiara had its'  defenders as well as its trnduccrs, when  suddenly'a'man'appeared who exclaimed:,  "Me,  mi.  adsum  qui feci!"

Another claimant had  appeared for the fatherhood of the an-,  tique, a llussian Jew by the name ofj  Kouchoniowski: He was sent for, came to.  Paris at the expense of the French au-/  ithorities, and seems to have satisfied tho.  learned Academician that all the designs,  arid inscriptions of the tiara were copied,  by him from books of archaeology, sup-*  plied to him by people who, though lie-  was ignorant of their purpose, simply in-,  ���������tended to victimize, some of the leading;  ISuropean museums.

At  last Rosa could catch Iris words:  "It might be," lie was muttering;  "there Is Just a chance���������hardly a,  chance, Indeed; but tho Lord might direct it.

This belief created a barrier as it were between her and her  : daughter, and prevented her offering  the consolation which would have been  admissable had' thero been a moro direct sympathy In their,vlews of the  matter. By her very position, Mrs.  ���������Bruyn was forced to stand midway between her husband and daughter; and  she deemed it best, under the circumstances, to let Rosa's grief quietly wear  itself out. She was little aware, indeed,  of the real depth of the wound that had  been inflicted, 30 calm and patient was  the brave girl's demeanor, but she could  note the altered appearance and demeanor, and her anxiety and sympathy  iivere deeply 'excited.  Ralph Saybrook continued his calls  at farmer Bruyn's, and his attentions  to Rosa. So delicate and circumspect  ,was his conduot, however, that he had  really made a quite favorable impression upon Mrs. Bruyn, and even Rosa  ���������was forced to treat him with a consideration that she would gladly perhaps have accepted the opportunity to  .���������withhold. But the fact was, that so  ,-weU had he ingratiated himself In tho  old -farmer's good opinion, and so careful *was he not to allow Kosa any opportunity to take or show offense with- ;  out doing injustice to her natural goodness of heart, that he had greatly,  strengthened his position as a suitor  for her hand, without her being really  aware of it. At times ihe thought of  the wrong that had been done to Claude  smote her heart, yet she had no ground'  save her own suspicions to accuse the  Saybrpoks of a plot to injure her lover,  and her nature was too guileless and  too generous to tako the risk of doing  Injustice upon mere conjecture.  'Thus evor-reculirrlng grief and doubt  lay at the heart of the unhappy girl;  and the fact that there seefned no ono  In whom she could confide, and that  everybody appeared drawn into the plot  to thwart her wishes, caused her sorrows to weigh moro heavily upon her  heart than  they otherwise  would.    It  seemed to her continually that if there |  ������������������were only somo one to whom she could j  talk  about  her  sorrows.   If   she   only I  knew some friend of Claude's of whom  she  could  simply  inquire  his  welfare,  even though it were to ask in vain. It  would  be  some  relief  to   the  intenso  strain of anxiety and grief.  So it was with a sudden emotion of  Joy that, one day, as she was watering  her- cherished  flower-bed  in  the  front  yard, she saw the familiar form of old  Carl CruiB descending the road that led  toward ISO house from the village.    It  seemed strange thatshehadnotthought  of him.   She knew that Claude had airways highly esteemed the faithful old  man. and that he was devoted to the  ���������Rolff family, and she felt an irresistible  desire to talk to him.    There was no  -\  ers, and my experience of life Is that  ; the Lord is often kinder to us than our  ' weak  faith  merits.    We  can  put  our  1 trust In him and try tho plan.    It is  our only hope."  Rosa caught eagerly at this plan,  hopeless as lt seemed.  "Yes," she exclaimed, "it ls our only  hope, and we will try it. and pray tho  good Lord to direct it safely. I will gu  ln the house now and write my letter;  and you, Mr. Crum, must write all you  know, and to-morrow I can bring my  letter to you."  "No, no," replied tho old man, " 'tis  too long a walk for you to come down  to the ferry; and I must needs be up  to the village during the morning; and  If you will walk down toward Rolff  House at nine o'clock you will find me  there. It is some sort of pleasure for  me to linger round the old house,  .though I may not enter it."  In truth, old Car] did not allow a day  to pass In which every means of entrance to Rolff House was not carefully  scrutinized by him. It caused him  great anxiety to sfre the house lonely  and unguarded, and he took every  means in his power to guard it as vigilantly as he could.  Rosa wrote a long letter to Claude  (detailing her troubles and anxiety, tha  rumors that prevailed in regard to  'Anthony Saybrook's treachery, and her  suspicions in regard to the plot tlrat  had been put in motion to separate  them, and next day, nt the hotlr appointed, she wandered down toward  Rolff House, where, at ihe gate, sho  found old Carl, who took her letter,  and, telling her that he must hasten  back, as his friend was to Ier.vc at  once for the city, on a sloop that would  sail that very day, turned and loft her  With a cheery word to be of good heart.  And then, kneeling down o'n the "soft  greensward, in the shadow of the tall  stone gateway, the fair girl prayed  fervently that her' letter might reach  its destination, and the clouds of sorrow  that surrounded her be dispersed.  CHAPTER XX.  It was not without somo trepidation  that Anthony Saybrook finally resolved  on the bold step of recording the deeds  ���������which would make him pratica] master  of Rolff House and a considerable portion of the estate connected therewith.  His wary nature did not allow him to  proceed in his viliany without many  thoughts and misgivings. He fully believed that the chances were all In favoi  of his never being seriously troubled by  Claude; yet he could not but forsoe tho  possibility that the war might suddenly  end, and the young man come to a  knowledge of his treachery before he  had obtained that advantage of long  occupation of the place which he considered quite essential to the full sue-  ���������a-ty^am^ready^to^takeUhe^chance^of^^ reason fcr^hesU^  our keeping It*" -        .   .   .   ___*.._. *     ...-_  "I quite see tbe weight of yo-ur arguments,*' replied Ralph, "and, of course,  I'm in favor of a bold course.

CHAPTER XIX  Wearily passed the days to Rosa.  ���������tBruyn. , Drearily the sun rose in. the  morning and as drearily set behind the  .western mountains at eve. She performed iter accustomed duties with her  'usual alacrity, and perhaps with moro  than her usual conscientious care; but  ���������the light of happy content had gono  ���������from her sweet face and the buoyancy  from her step. For days and weeks  she had wrestled with the doubts and  surmises that had thronged continually  upon her, und this mental anxiety and  conflict could not but leave Its impression. But, through it all. she had not  given up her faith In Claude. She was  ���������resolved that she would not question  his fidelity till she was afforded better  evidence than anything that could  oome to her through the Instrumentality  of Anthony Saybrook. She was strongly lmaelied to the belief that the defa-  -matloa of Claude and  the persistent ���������  away from home, and she was familiarly acquainted With the kindly but" eccentric Old man, who had always petted  her when ho met her since she was a  little girl, and was at all tim������s as approachable by the young and Innocent  as well could be. So Rosa unhesitatingly set down her watering pot, and hastened to the xate to intercept him.  I A pleasant smile Ut up the old man's  ���������rough, bearded face as he drew near.  * "Good day, Mr. Crum," said Rosa,  nrlth courtesy.  I "Ah, good day, my rosebud," replied  old Carl as he took her hand and pressed lt In his horny paw. "Let me look  at you," he added, as he adjusted his  epectacles. "Tes, yes, I see���������your face  has prown older and thinner; and there  Is a trace of trouble ln It I fancy. It's  the way of the world, and a sad world  it is for the good and the pure. It  ought to be some years, yet before your  jlaco should show care, my pretty one."  I "I have good reason for trouble," replied Rosa, with a simple frankness  that Indicated her entire absorption in  the object of her quest.   "I thought I  .���������would speak to you, Mr. Crum, to learn  (���������whether you had heard from Claude  ���������Blnce he went away."  ; The old man stroked his head a mo-  ������nent as if in troubled thought.  . "I hear from bim?" he answered*.  JTea, yes, rosebud, to my sorrow. Tou  jknow I am in disgrace at Rolff House.  ;He wrote me dismissing me from the  house���������that is nil. But you surely have  heard from the young master, and I  Svould fain enquire news of him of you.''  "Not a word have I heard from him  ���������Ince he left here," replied Rosa, with  Just m hint ln her tones of the anxiety  at her heart."  , "Indeed, indeed," muttered the old  man. "This ls strange���������strange. 'But  fwhy do I say strange, when tbe graceless villain, Anthony Saybrook, has had  ���������the Influencing of master Claude's  mind?   There seems no evil influeneo  essary for him to defend his title before  the law.  Nevertheless, he could not. hesitate.  Having* resolved on his course, the soon.  er he made himself master of Rolfl  House the better. So the fraudulent  deeds were recorded, and the little community was soon afforded full confirmation of all Its suspicions of the operations of theshrewd.unscrupulous lawyer.  Anthony Saybrook took occasion to explain publicly how it was that he cam*  to be the owner of Rolff House. His explanation was to the effect that Claude  had wanted money on any terms and al  any price; he had furnished lt, and, ol  course had taken the best security ht  could get, which was securing of tht  deeds ln question; and he shrewdly explained that he had not designed to usa  the deeds so soon, but as war had  broken out, and all-hope of the young  heir returning to redeem his premises  had heen .thwarted, he had hastened  his possession of the house.because it  was without an occupant, he being un������  able to get any one to live in it, and th|  ���������pTaee was going to deca,** and needed  supervision and repair.  Thi3 explanation proved satisfactory  to most people. They saw only that the  lawyer had been afforded a rare c-hanco  to enrich himself at the expense of the  foolish young heir, and they did not  question the means now that it was evident be had the property safely enough  4n his possession and would be the  richest and most powerful man in the  section.  On no one did this transaction make  a deeper Impression than on old Jacobus  (Bruyn. To him it was evidence not  only of the truth of his prediction ln regard to the recklessness and worthless-  siess of Claude Rolff, but It placed the  lawyer in the position of being the only  man In the world who owned that which  he coveted, or whose good or bad opinion could affect his   peace   of mind.  The old farmer was himself of the most  rugged honesty in nil money matters,  and at tlie bottom of his heart he despised thc means by which Claude had  been cheated out of liis inheritance;  but he was of too workly-wiso and  money-loving a nature to trouble himself much about tho moral aspect of tlio  matter. Ke could see plainly thnt  from the turn events had taken, young  1'talph Saybrook would be tho richest  young man in the neighborhood, and  the irclr of lands that ho prized far  more than their money value, and, us  he had really taken a fancy to him, ho  became decidedly Interested in seeing  ills suit with Rosa prosper.  It had not prospered so far, spite ot  nil tlte persistence, subservience and  arts of the young man. lie had gained  every advantage or position to urge  his suit, but Ire could sec only ten plainly that he had not made the host progress In displacing Claude Rolff in the  affections of tho young lady. To the  young man this did not cause tiny great  amount of disappointment, as his heart  was not so much cn.-wgod as to suffer  many pangs, and ho felt reasonably  certain of success In the end If I'lnu.lo  did not return, which he was not likely  to do while the war lasted. Hut Iho  elder Saybrook wns not so philosophical over the matter, lie felt the gravity  of the step he had taken In using the  fraudulent deeds, und wished to fortify  his position In every possible way  against all contingencies of the future.  He saw that It would bo a good stroke  of fortune for Ralph to secure tho only  daughter of the rich old farmer, and ho  was anxious to expedite matters so as  to prevent any possible risk of failure  from any unwished-for developments,  as well as to make sure of strengthening his position against any future legal troubles by the alliance with liis  rich neighbor.  So Anthony Saybrook took every occasion to Interest the old farmer in  Ralph's behalf, artfully seeking to ox-  cite his cupidity by frequent references  to the old woods and the adjoining  meadow lands which he knew in the  eyes of the old man were one of tho  most tempting of prizes.  These efforts had their effect on farmer Bruyn. He became more and more  Interested in the project of the match  between Ralph and his daughter, and  'his interest was not the less becauso  ���������he could see that Rosa was secretly sorrowing over her separation from Claude  This latter fact especially worried the  old gentleman. To bu sure, their seemed no probability of Claude ever returning to make trouble, but it angered him  to think that his daughter's affections  should be wasted at all on sueh a graceless scamp. So he took frequent occasion to commend and praise Ralph Saybrook in her hearing, and to let her  know by wh'at he no doubt considered  delicate hints that It would be pleasing  to him to see her encourage the young  man's suit.  Rosa received all these indications of  her father's wishes in silence. This encouraged him to believe that she would  speedily yield.  Still, the days passed.on, and Rosa  ���������grew more quiet and sad, and Ralph's  suit failed to make progress. The old  farmer began to be troubled.  "What alls you, chl'rd?" he said to  her one day, as he entered the house  and found her sitting sad and with  tears stealing down her face by a win-  Sow���������so-absorbed in her mood as not  to have noticed hia entrance. "Dun'der  and dounds, you're no longer my merry  little girl. Crying for- that scamp of  a Claude Rolff, oh! For shame! He's  no fellow for a girl to cry her eyes out  about���������the rascal.

To mention Sir Henry Irving's name  without linking with it'that of his colleague, Ellen Terry, is impossible. The  two have been so closely united irr their  art, almost without a break, for twenty-  four years, that old playgoers resent,  somewhat in tire sense of a private  ���������frievance, the presence of the actress in  management at the Imperial while the  actor is at Drury Lane. But these  things seem to be among the inevitables  of the dramatic world. All the same,  when one conjures back sweet memories  of Miss Terry playing Ophelia to Sir  Henry living's Harnlet, .Marguerite to  Iris JM'ephistoplreles, and Madame San-5-  Gene to his Napoleon, ;'t is hard to siille  the feeling that, this combination errded,  some of the fragrance has departed from  oirr stage. J'eojile wont, of course, to  tire Lyceum "to see Irving." but in so  3peakirrg they never forgot that tliey  would see JJTllerr Terry as well.  The professional association of Miss  Terry with "Mr." Irving dales back, indeed, further than tire Lyceum days, for  these two young people were pliiyinu  together in "The Taming of the Shrew"  at the old Queen's Theater under the  management of the Wigans. Nor.  though Miss Terry is out of the cast of  "Dante," is she a novice in Sardou's  plays, for was she not, just three years  ago, the lending lady in "Robespierre,"  which Snrdou wrote speerallv for thc  Lyceum company? An unkind fate at  times 'has decreed thnt she should enact  the tragedy-queen; but, as we all know,  her truest .successes have been ia that  species of comedy where gentle raillery  and the display of arch perversitr and  merry mischief divulge her womanhood.  Theater-goers of to-dav are often unaware that Sir Henry "Irving, too, possesses the gift of comedy to a degree  which���������in the former judgment of some  ���������overshadows the tragic and realistic.

BIG   BLUFF.  AVe understand   a   protest lias been  entered against the election   of Thos.  Taylor,  M.P.P.,  in  this constituency.  The question  "Where did the money  come fi-oinJ" naturally arises.    But of  that   more  in  the near future.     The  protest   can   be   nothing more than n  great big   bluff.      There  was nothing  done  by  JMr'. Taylor or his supporters  in  contravention of  tiro Electrons Act  and   consequently   the   protest   must  fail.      However-,  our   Liberal   friends  will   have   done  something   to make  happy the life of   a   limb  of   the law.  But these tilings often turn out boomerangs.     Counter charges can be laid  and tbey will be.     Probably attention;  will be drawn to attempted stuffing of  tbe lists  by Liberal'agents, of which  absolute proof is in existence.   Intimidation was also resorted to.   This can  nlso be   proved up to the hilt.    Let  them all come and the  man to emerge  with a  clean   record  will be Thomas  Taylor.     The protest  will never come  to trial, however, it is  already lost on  statutory grounds.  TARIFF CAMPAIGN,  The annoucement of our intention  to publish the pamphlets issued by  Chamberlain's tariff committee has  aroused great interest all over the  province and the Herax-dIuis received  many encomiums on its enterprise in  obtaining for its readers these illuminating, terse arguments in favour of  preferential trade. XVe have also the  Colxlen Club publications and may  re-print some of them later on.  The two published today are of  especial interest. The first, dealing  with taxes on food, will be read with  avidity by* those whose predilections  run. through birth and training, towards what is usually termed ''free  trade.'* although JMr. Chamberlain's  new definition, "free imports." more  aptly sets out present conditions in  Great Britain.  Xumlx-r four clearly enunciates the  difference l>etween Mr. Colxlen's aspirations and the present attitude of the  Cobden Club. Mr-. Cobden believed be  was the leader in a crusade that, in a  few years, would change the fiscal  policy of the world.  ���������'Von might a.s well tell rne tlrnt the  sun will not rise tomorrow as tell nre  that foreign nations will rrot adopt  Free Trade in less than ten year-s from  now."  How false tbat prediction wns Great  Britain rrow knows to her' cost. Instead ot* being copied by other- nations  British so-called free trade has resulted  in heightening the barrier-s of protection against her exports while she has  become the dumping ground of the  surplus produce of the rest of ihe  world. Canada watches with anxious  eyes tbe success or failure of Mr.  Chamberlain's campaign. It means  much to the Dominion. Ultimate  success will be his. however, and in a  very few years the Empire will be able  to use, as regards hostile tariffs, Tennyson's emblem of Imperial unity.  "Hands all round."  As usual, the "Mail" in its issue of  Oct. 21 tli wilfully misrepresented the  position of rond arid trail work irr this  constituency. The statement tlrat the  stoppage of work at this lime of the  year is unusual does rrot accord wilh  the facts. Uoad work was never continued in this districl nl'ler about the  ."ith October' and the only tiring unusual this year was the extension of  lime until the lltli so that the money  provided could tin fully used up.  Irr reference, to the Beatrice trail.  Tlris is a matter which concerns the  owners of that urine alone. An appropriation of $l.*i(X) was made to assist, in  giving transportation facilities from  the mine in question. The appropriation wus spent. The management of  tbo Beatrice is satisfied. The -���������Mail"  has nothing to do with the matter.  As to the Cnuoe river trail tire  ���������'Mail" states that the "peoplo put irr  supplies, expecting to complete tho  work authorized." That expectation  has been fulfilled. The work authorized has been completed. The amount  allotted has been expended. If not  enough' wa.s allotted the only person  to blame is the "Mail's" tin god, XV.  V. Wells, who made the appropriation.  The Camborne-Benton wagon road  is not in good shape. Everyone knows  that. But W. C. Wells would only  allow ,$3000 to be sperrt err it and that  has practically all been used up. Work  was not suspended immediately after  electiorr. Men ace working there yet.  The foregoing facts show the deliberate misrepresentations made by our  contemporary.  Attention is also made to men being  employed on roads before elections.  And wc suppose that when an election  is near all work should be stopped?  This is. what the "Mail" inferentially  advocated, And while on this matter  let us remind the "Mail" of Jlr. Kellie's  actions in 1804. There were 100 rrren  employed' on the Trout Lake wagon  road then. The elections were in .Inly  and they were discharged immediately  after. It was rill right for' Kellie fo  shut down worn in the middle of the  summer but wrong for the present  Government to conclude it late in the  fall.  Not content with misrepresentation  the "Mail" becomes libellous. It  stales, referring to the Crow's Nest  oil lands, tlrat Mr. McBride 'assisted  in putting the deal through. Mr. McBride was irot in the House when tho  Cro r's Nest project, the B. C. Southern Railway, was considered. Irr fact,  he was a law student taking no interest in politics. Maybe our contemporary, in its ignorance, meant the  Columbia and Western. if so. the  "Mail" shows its untrustworthiness.  Hon. W. C. Wells admitted that he  fathered the scheme. And yet the  "Mail" virtually calls Wells a prevaricator by saying that, in making this  statement, he lied.   Next!  The "Mail" also states the Bank of  Commerce has refused further advances to the Government. The "Mail"  says it gets the press despatches. If  so. it suppressed the news. If not, it  jrrisrepre^nAs,^^  got the   facts   from   exchanges.    Th*  chief clerk irr the Department ot*  Mines) examined a large amount of  correspondence as to reforming tire  mining laws arrd thero is irr Ihat Department today a tabulated statement  of all suggestions received rrp to lire  time Mr. McBride. retired.  It may also be stated that the present Premier cleared up all anomalies  in the "Placer Mining Act", and  stopped blanketing, by bis important,  aiiiciidmerrts during the session of  11X11. .Since that lime the act in question has worked perfectly and the  only bone of contention i.s found in  Part VI I., regarding hydraulic lenses,  which tenure a number of mining rneir  suggest should Ire changed to a free-  bold similarly to the present method  of Crown granting under tlie "Mineral  Act." On this subject we shall have  something to say irr the near future.  The "Mineral Act" also received  adequate attention and the Mining  Committee was banded a draft of suggested amendments which, if passod  in their entirety, would have removed  the many contradictions that exist in  the act irr question. The committee,  however, deemed it impossible to take  up the matter during the rush of the  session and contented itself with a  couple of sections, orre making plain  the position of a "Special Free Miner's  Certificate," and the other dealing with  declarations and affidavits in mining  procedure and litigation. It is much  to bo regretted the full amendments  recommended by JMr. McBride did not  become law, but he cannot, be blamed j  for this failure. We trust these  amendments will be mado at the coming session. If suck be done the work  of consolidation would be easy and all  laws regarding mining .made into one  with the smallest possible change in  conditions for locating, recording and  holding claims.  We believe this consolidation would  be a good thing, but it must-be done  in a manner that will not alter the  intention of the present law except for  some explicit, and well considered  reason. If, irr addition, there wa.s  embodied in the Aot a declaration  that no. further 'amendments would be  rrrade for a period of year's prospectors aird mining men would have more  confidence iu tire stability of legisla-  lation governing our most important  industry.  At the present time the mining laws  are distributed over a large number of  Acts. In addition to those regarding'  Mineral . claims and Placer mininy  there are (1) Coal Mines, (2) Coal Tax  (3) Water Clauses, (4) Assessment, (a"  Land and orre or two others we cannot  for the moment recall. This sort tithing is wrong and should be remedied. It will not tie a difficult matter'  and we believe that the present government? will take it* up in a businesslike way.

IIow 1 Obviously the way to learn is to  study the rrretlrods of men who have succeeded.  Guides to success are many. What do they say ? He honest. Tell the truth.  Work hard. Save money. Bo S-ro worth of work for wages of $$. Such advice  is good, no doubt, as far as it goes,���������but is not something more needed?  Did these methods alone make Ilir.i.is, and liOK, and Reed, and Carnegie,  ond Curtis, successful ?  Young nren nre not fools. They see that there is a secret of success, and  that it is more than honesty and hard work, else every honest hard worker  would  he successful.  Tlie secret lies in controlling the minds of men. How to make others believe  you, .trust you, and do what you wish,���������this is what you must learn. To be sure,  few ..will learn it but those who also work hard and tell the truth. These, come  first,���������but tlrey nre not all.  f As a guide to the highest success, "Modern Eloquence" has no rival.   Itis  a splendid series of object-lessons by masters in the art of influencing men's minds.  And the success aimed at is fnr more than mere money success.   Fame, power, honor,  I the gratitude and lave of generations to come,���������these are the rewards which have  |  spurred to such efforts tire nren whose words are gathered in these ten rich volumes.

Tn order to give a preference to our  own Colonies, it is proposed that a  small tax should be levied on Foreign  wheat���������but not on Colonial wheat���������in  order to encourage Colonial farming  and British farming.  ln return for tlris preference the  Colonies will give a Preferential Tariff  in favour of British manufactured  goods.  Canada lias already given a. preference to British goods. "What has been  tire result? The exportation of British  products into Carrada, which had been  steadily falling oif forcmany years,  increased from ������0,594,000 in 1S!'5 to  ,dK9,&"j9,000 in 1000. Think how much  employment for British labour this  increase of -63,000,000 means I  A 6iuall duty on corn will tend to  give n. stimulus to the growth of wheat  at home.  The number of acres of land under  coin in the United Kingdom :  Tn 1SS1     .    .    .   10,654,097  In 1S91     .    .   .     9,443,001)  In 1901     .    .   .     S,576,80*J  f Land going out of cultivation means  -.a sheer loss to the national wealth, as  well as n loss   of  occupation  irr the  country and a congestion of labour in  the towns.  Suppose that a tax of 2*. a quarter  were placed on foreign wheat, while  wheat from the British possessions  was admitted free.  The consumption of wheat in the  United Kingdom is six bushels, or  three-quarter of a quarter, per head in  the year. Thus, even if the tax caused  a rise of 2s. in the price, the extra cost  would only amount to ls. Od. a hoad.  ��������� But it is certain that a 2s. duty does  not mean a 2s. rise in price.  It is sometimes laid down by old-  fashioned and ill-instruit d economists  that "Import duties on food are paid  wholly by the consumer.*' . This is  taken for granted by many critics of  the new policy.  - But it is not true.  In the first place it is contradicted  by experience. Two tests have recently been applied to this maxim in our  own country. When the sugar duty  was raised, the State made a large  gain without any increase of price to  the consumer of sugar.  The shilling registration duty on  corn was taken off by JMr. JLowe in  18C9, without lowering the price of  bread: and was put on again by, Sir  Michael Hicks-Beach in 1902, without  raising the price of bread. Tills tax  was paid, not by the consumer, but  ���������partly-by���������the--Aiuerica.n~~and^other  producers, paitly by the American  rail way companies, who at once lowered the rate of carriage for corn.  In Italy the Corn Duty was raised  from ls. lOd. to 7s. Od. in 18S3. This  policy greatly increased the output of  wheat in Italy, and thus increased the  national wealth of that country, but il  did not raise the price of the food of  the people. .       .  In the second place the statement is  contradicted by common sense. Thc  duty will encourage the production of  wheat at home and in the Colonies.  It will therefore increase the amount  pf wheat in the world; and an increase  of supply will not tend to an increase  of price.  A duty may x*aise tlie price of corn,  but it cannot raise it by so much as  the amount of the duty.  But notice further that, the increase  of price is not so much loss to the  purchaser. The 2s. duty (paid, in part  at least, by foreigners in return for  access to our market), goes to fill the  national purse. Now it is certain that  the national purse must bo filled somehow. If thc state takes money out of  our pockets in respect of -corn, it can  take less in other forms of taxation���������  say for iustancee, on tea, sugar nnd  tobacco.  The duty on tobacco is now 3s. to  8s, Od. a pound. The duty on ten is  Od. a* pound. A reduction of 2|d. or  8d. in the duty on tea, of which tho  annual consumption is 71b. a head,  would more Winn make up for a 2s.  duty on corn. Tho cost of subsistence  would be thc same as now, but the  workinginan would liave all the ad-  I vantage of increased employment and  ! larger trade with the Colonies.  No. 4.���������con den's   i-*kee  tiiade  and  C'liriMli.V C'l.UIl  KltKE TIIADE.  Speaking at Manchester on the 15th  of January, 184(1���������the year in which  the old Corn Law was repealed*���������.Mr.  Cobden said:  "I'Turope altogether has been cor  i-uptcd by the vicious example, of l-Tng-  larrd in lier commercial legislation. I  believe llrat, if you abolish tire Corn  Ijiiw honestly, arrd adopt l-'ree Trade  in its simplicity, there will not he a  Tariff iu Kuropc that will not be  changed iu less than live years to  follow your example."  On another occasion JMr. Cobrlou  said:  "Vou might a.s well tell me that the  sun will not rise to-morrow as tell ine  tbat foreign nations will not adopt  l-'i-i-e Trade in less than ten years from  now."  This shows plainly that the Free  Trade that Jlr. Cobden cared for, and  worked for, and expected to get as the  result of his labours, was Keciprocal  l-'ree Trade,���������free export*- as well a.s  free imports.  We were 'to get Reciprocal Free  Trade in live years. We have waited  nearly sixty years, and we have not  got it yet I Moreover the commerce of  the protected countries, especially our  chief commercial rivals, Germany and  the United States, is making such  huge progress rrow that they are less  likely than ever to be tempted to  follow our example.  Is it not lime to reconsider' our position, and to adopt a Progressive Commercial Policy?  Free Trade, according tn Mr. Cob-  den's expectation���������that is, universal  free trade���������will never come by Europe  following our example. We may approach it by degrees if we have the  power of bargaining for reduction or  abolition of tariffs against us.  More hopeful still is the prospect of  Free Trade within the Empire. That  is Mr. Chamberlain's ideal: and his  proposal of Reciprocity with the Colonies is the first necessary step in this  direction.  NOTICE.

It v,-:is very strange, but she. felt  her heart go out to this young man  in as del errnined a fashion as Iho  disliko and mistrust had como for  Gordon Smyihe. Iho first time she,  had seen him. She fell, sorry for  him, too; ho looked tired, and so anxious, and there w.ts an indefinable  and indescribable charm about  altogether.  Involuntarily stc turned and walked back t.o the gate with him, and,  us he passed out, his handsom"., fair  i/oung head uncovered in hor honor,  held oul. her band suddenly, I renting  bim as though hc had boon an old  ������nd  valued  friend.  "Good night I" she snid again, and  llmosl unconsciously to herself, the  aid blessing  hor  father  used  to give  eh,  my  "You know as well as I do whether  it is right to say srrch things," Katharine   returned  very'coldly.  Then, a.s the hall door closed and  I Mrs. Smythe wa.s heard entering. a  ���������righ of relief broke from her lips,  and moving awny quickly, she let  the mother run in to welcome her son,  hut not before she had caught a  glimpse of the scow! which had come  to Gordon's face, and noticed how  angry Mis eyes had grown with a cur-  iou*t,  vindictive linger.  She was half way up the narrow,  old- fashioned staircase to her own  room, when an impulse seemed to  strike her, and she went down slowly  ngnin.  "Sarah," she said, standing In the  tiny, spotless kitchen, "Sarah, what  mado you tell that gentleman an untruth just now?"  Sarah's hard, honest face flushed.  "And, indeed, Miss Katharine, if.  weren't my fault, no how! .".raster  Gordon was that firm, he quite frightened me, like; and when I camo and I  (old him that the. young gentleman '  as he .warned me about hnd been,miss,  why, he tip and sworo most dreadful  like; and glad I was his mo-ther didn't  hoar him. .There!��������� T can't abide, bad  him i language: it leads to ovil ways, say f.

Kal.harrno shivered unconsciously,  anil a curious nervousness fell on her  as she went upstairs again��������� a nervousness born of the. sensation tha*  evil  was close at  hand!  dl^J   what I imagined was true. I had no  thought of Gordon coming to-night.  I wish" ���������Katharine's sweet red lips  little ���������"I wish,"  very slowly, "he  had not come for Gordon ; it dis-  t ro.ises me. ' I feel as if a dark  shadow were hanging over us ���������a  shadow (bat   will   not  be lifted."  Then with a broken sigh and a  half- impatient, gesture, as though  al. her own folly for thinking this,  Katharine left the window, and having knelt down and said her prayers,  rested her beautiful bead on her pillow, and was soon asleep and in  dreamland.  Rut in all her dreams none came  io warn her of the dark shadow that  was even then creeping, slowly but  surely  over her  life.  Ker spirits "rose as sho walked  Quickly, gotling awny from tho  works as fast us she could, and t'ar-  :lo frisked along .gayly by hor side.  When she got outside tho old walls  sho stopped.  "I shall havo liine to got to 1''ihs-  t*i-s Mirro and brick before breakfast,"  sho said, consull/nrg her watch,; "ihe  air is so lovely  there."  So on sho ,wen(, gelling swiftly oul  of Iho nniso of tho works and Iho  smoko of tho town, till sho camo to  n rough, open commorr, across whicli  a faint sofi breeze was blowing.  As Katharine walked, hor mind was  busy   wilh   Iho   fui uro.  "With mv fifty pounds I could  never starve," she determined, "and  daddy always said -..ion.

"So llris was his arrangement, wa.s  it?" she. murmured. "Poor follow ���������  poor boy !"  Kaiharinn was barely nineteen herself, but sho irad grown accustomed  to consider herself a woman, arid in  her sight this young stranger was  quite a boy. "How tired he. is, his  eyes are quite dark underneath with  fatigue. I.'oor fellow, . how I wisir I  know what was troubling him; shall  I wake him and ask him?

"No," she -said to herself,  "I will let him. sleep on, he seems  worn out; when 'I go b-iok I will toll  Gordon whore I have, soon him, nnd  perhaps rouse him to somo sense ot  duty."  "My henrt misgives me," she-murmured,' aa she passed on and loft  iho  sleeper  undisl urbed.  This unexpected incident robbed hor  walk of all Its-pleasures. It was  strange how siiu could not rid her  mind of (he fooling that this young  mini was iu somo danger, and that  she ought to shield him. That some  very urgent motive had brought him  down to Ledstone in J a penniless condition ���������else why, it bo bird money,  should ho be sleeping in 'lhe open  fields? ���������Katharine was corlain now  and a cold shiver passed ihrough her  as she recalled hor cousin's unox-  peited arrival home, and his linger  ���������repealed lo her by Sarah ���������ai i he  fact that ho. had been followed by  this  si ranger.  Thinking deeply, Katharine walked  on lill sho reached tho curious, old,  ruined works called I-'rasor's Mine.  A'bout ton vra rs previously some unwary individual had gorre to the enormous expense of sinking a shafi  and gelling all the. paraphernalia  necessary for tho production ot coal.  Unfortunately coal refused (o be produced, and Hie result of the speculation was utter and complete ruin for  Lho originaror. The pecuniary part  of thc affair had*,passed into Chancery, and ihero il remained, while  the mi no was allowed io fall into decay "and ruin as fnsi us it liked. Katharine had a si range fancy for rhis  (lesulato phi en; s.lio ofion brought her  pen and paper here, and wrote hard  al. iho stories which no one but herself kncwcxiMed. There was nol  much fe.ir of interruption, for 1 he  factory folk did not care aboul tho  spot, and wilh one voice declared it  haunted; but Katharine had a supreme contempt for gliosis arrd all  spectres, and enjoyed her solitude  immensely.  Arrived at her favorite corner��������� a  portion sheltered by huge, muss- covered beams, from behind which, a few-  yards beyond, could be caught a  glimpse of lho dark, uncovered mouth  of the'pit��������� she sat down ' to think,  and, tired with the long, hot walk,  and the unusual exertion of rising so  ..-arly, the girl gradually lost the  troubled train of her thought in a  soft, deep sleep; Carlo, curled up at  her feet, following her example.  From a curious, mixed dream,Katharine was awakened suddenly by-  heavy raindrops falling-on her face,  and a loud clap ot thunde.r rolling  over her head. She had boon asleep  an hour, and in that time the morning glory Bad gono and the sky had  grown-=gray-and=stormy.=**=**^=-=���������-=  "Come, Carlo, wo must get under  shelter," she said, rising quickly, arrd  running into a shed that had once  been     tiro foreman's  room,   Katharine  OTArrrort ii.

Thc. morning was so  lovely   that sbo-detr-rrnin-  ed to dress  and  go out,  urged  iiy the j  fact     that   Iho     old,    uncomfortable, i  troubled thoughts of the night before \  (had come    back,  and     I bn t  the fresh j  ' air might,  help  to dispel  lhem, belter j  than   a   vain   attempt   to   woo    moro !  sleep. " {  She stole very slowly down lho j  stairs into tho garden, which ���������having picked a burr.;!) of rosos ��������� she.  soon left, and with a pat and a smile  of consent to Carlo, the old fox terrier, to join her in hor walk, turned  down tho street toward the. old walls  ind country lanes. A busy hum of  machinery greeted her ear as she  went, and every now nnd then she  met a factory hand who dropped a  respectful curtsey to hor gentle  .riorning greet ing. Thero was not a  ion! irr Ledslono who did not like and  idmire   Kulharino  Xireretun.  prepared to wait patiently for the  storm lO'Clear.

Sho knew them in a moment; there  was no mistaking Gordon's smart  fiond street cut clothes, and Katharine had a vivid recollection of the  light iweedsuit worn by the other.  .It was evident thoy had run sharply  to escape the rain, for both were,  breathless, and that might have accounted for lho singular pallor arrd  anger that was written on Gordon  .Smythe's* faco.  "This is bettor!" Katharine heard  the young stranger exclaim; sire  could car oil every syllable, uttered  quite easily. '/'Hy Jove! isn't it corning 'down!  Gordon made.no reply; he was carefully shaking tho raindrops from his  sleeve.  The olher wailed a few moments,  then half- impatiently, half- eagerly,  bo said:  "AVell, Smythe, what's your answer?"  Gordon   turned on  lrinr savagely.  "What, do you mean by hunting ni������  in this way, curse you!" ho muttered  fiercely.  The  other laughed  shortly.  "Gome, don't lose your temper, old  fellow.

'Katharine could seo the veins swollen urr Gordon's brows, and iho expression written on his face soul a  thrill  of droad  through  her.  "You've como on a wild gooso.

IIow. long ho stood thus. Gordon  never knew. Suddenly he started  with a smothered shriek; a cold hand  had seized him as in an-iron grip,  and somo one was beside him. It was  Katharine.  "You have killed him! ��������� killed  him!" sho muttered, in a voice almost choked with horror and emotion  "I���������I saw him go, sent by your hand  ���������he screamed as Iro went.

With swifl, trembling steps sho  approached (hat dark chasm again,  and  bent  over   it.  'All was deathly still. Xot a moan  or sigh' came lo hor ear. Katharino  looked about her in an agonized way.  It she could but go down thero and  discover it a spark of lifo still lingered! In lho full I error of the past  few moments sho had been too stunned to think of succoring him ; now  every nerve in her body was quivering. She felt if something wero not  dono sho must go mad. Turning  suddenly, she saw Gordon still on  his knees beside her.  "Quick!" sho said, almost fiercely.  "Quick!

Instead of crying to  mo for your paltry lifo, Gordon  Smyihe, arouse yourself and think of  your victim."

Gordon crept nearer to her.

As hor eyes opened again,  and she realized whose arm was supporting her, she started up with a  dhudder, of deep, unutterable repugnance.

We grew up together, the threo  ���������of us, and full often have I received the  |r������ngiy blows cnclr intended for the other,  'They were always competing, striving to  .��������� ..1.1..

This intense spirit of rivalry obtained  (In their studies nnd their games. If  (Paul memorized ono canto of "Arar-  ���������imion," Lloyd memorized two cantos,  ���������Paul came "back with three, nnd /Lloyd'  .again with four, till eneh knew the whole  ,poem by heart. I remember an incident,  (that occurred at the swimming-hole���������an  incident tragically significant of tlte life-  -struggle between" tlrem. The boys had a  jame of diving to tire bottom of a ten-  foot pool and holding on by submerged  roots to sec which could stay under the  "longest. Paul nnd Lloyd allowed thom-  -eelves to be bnntercd into making the  ��������� descent - together. When I _ saw their  faces, set and determined, disappear in  the water as tliey sank swiftly down, I  felt a forebodincr of something dreadful.  " The moments sped, the ripples died away,  the face of the pool grew placid and un-  ��������� troubled, and neither black nor golden  bead broke surfneo in quest of -iir. We  above grew anxious.   The longest record  - of the'longest-winded boy hnd been ex-  ��������� cecded, and still there was no sign. Air  ���������bubbles trickled slowly upward, showing   thnt  tire    breath * had    been.-. ex-  ,     'ipelled from their lunss, nnd after tlint,  the  bubbles   ceased   to  trickle  upward.  ; Each second  became  interminable, and,  ��������� unable longer to endure the suspense,:I  - plunged into the water.  I found ..thenv down "at  the bottom,  ��������� clutching tight to tlie roots, their heads  not a foot apart, their eyes wide open,  ��������� each glaring fixedly at. the other.   They  '      were suffering frightful torment, writhing and twisting in the pangs of voluntary suffocation;  for.neither would .et  ?o "and acknowledge himself hen ten.    I  ried to break Paul's hold on the root,  but he resisted me fiercely.   Then I lost  i       iny breath, and came to the surface bnd-J  "!y seared. T quickly explained the situa-  '',  "tion, and "half a dozen of us went down  -and by main strength tore them loose.  By the time we got them out, both were  unconscious, and* it wns only after; much  " barrel-rolling and rubbing and pounding*  that they finally came to their senses.  'They would have drowned there, had no  one rescued them.  .When Paul Tichlorne entered college,-  ' he let It be generally-understood that he  ���������was  going! In I for   the   social   sciences,  i      lilovd Inwood. entering at the same time,  ��������� elected to take the same course. But"  iPaul had had it secretly in mind all the.  time to study the natural sciences, ppe-  - ciallzlng on chemistry, and at thc last  moment he switched over. Though Lloyd,  had already arranged his year's work  ���������nd  attended  the "first lectures, he  at  -tones followed Paul's/lend and went in  for the natural sciences .and especially  for chemistry. Their rivalry, soon became.  ��������� rn noted thing throughout the university.;  Each was a spur to the other, and they*  ���������went Into chemistry deeper than did ever,  -students before���������-30 deep, in fact, that  ere they took their sheepskins tlrey could-  have stumped any chemistry or "cow, college" professor In the institution, save*  "old" Moss, head of the department, and  , "him even they puzzled and edified more'  Ithan once. Lloyd's discovery of the'  fdeath bacillus" of the sea toad, and his  experiments on it with potassium cyanide, sent his name and that of his i.ni-  =|*rer8lty=ringing=rotind=-the^world;'���������nor  iwas Paul a whit behind when he succeeded in producing laboratory colloids  ���������exhibiting amoeba-like activities, and  .-when he cast new light upon the pro-.  * cesses of fertilization through his startling experiments with simple sodium  ���������chlorides and magnesium solutions on  low forms of marine life.  It was In their undergraduate days,  however, In the midst of their profound-  ������st plunges into the mysteries of organic  chemistry, that Doris Van Benschoten  ���������entered into their lives. Lloyd met her.  ���������first, but within twenty-four hours Paul  saw to it that he also made her' ao*.  ���������; qunr'ntance. Of course, they fell in lov**>  with her, and she became the only thing  in life worth living for. They wooed her  with equal ardor and fire, and so in-  ' 'tense became their struggle for her that  half the student-body took to wagering  ���������wildly on the result. Even "old" JMojs,  ���������one day, after an astounding demonstration In his private laboratory by Paul,  ���������was guilty to the extent of a month's  salary of backing him to become the  ���������bridegroom of Doris Van Benschoten.  In the end she solved the problem in  her own way, to everybody's satisfac-'  tion except Paul's and Lloyd's. Getting,  them together, she said that she really;  could not choose between them hecauso  ehe loved them both equally well* and.  that, unfortunately, since polyandry was  not exactly permitted in the United  States, she would be forced to forego the.  honor and happiness of marrying cither.  of them. Each blnmcd the other for this,  lamentable outcome, nnd the bitterness*  feetween then, grew more bitter.  But things came to a head soon'  enough. It was at my home, after they'  had taken their degrees and dropped out:,  of the world's sight, that the beginning,  of tho end came to pass. Botli were!  men or means, with littlo inclination arrd"  no necessity for professional life. My  friendship and their mutual animosity,  were the two things thnt linked them In.1  iny way tog. Jier. While they wore*  very often at my place, they mode It ���������'  fastidious point to avoid each otner on  such visits, though it was inevitable, under the circumstances, that they should  some upon eacli other occasionally.  On tho dny I have in recollection, Paul  Tichlorne had been mooning nil morning  In my study over a current scientific review. This left me free to nry owrr affairs, and I wns out among my roses  when Lloyd Irrwood arrived. Clipping  and pruning arid tacking tlie climbers ou  tho porch, with my mouth full of nail'*,  nnd Lloyd following mc ahout and lending a hand now and again, wo fell to discussing the mythical race of Invisible  people, thnt strange arrd vagrant people  the traditions of which hnve come dowf  to us. Lloyd warmed to the talk in hid  nervous, jerky fashion, and was soon  interrogating the physical properties niul  possibilities of invisibility. A perfectly  black object, hc contended, would elude  and defy the ncutest vision.  "Color is a sensation,'' hc waa saying.  "It has" no objective reality. Without  light, we can see neither colors nor objects themselves. All objects are blnck  rn tho dark, and in the dark it is impossible to see tlicm. If no light strikes  upon them, then no light is Hung back  from tlrem to tho eye, and so wo have  no vision-evidence of their being."  "But wc see blnck objects in dnyliglrt,'  I objected.  "Very true," lie went on warmly. "And  that is becnusc tlrey nro not perfectly  black. Were they perfectly black, ribao-  lutely black, as it were, we could not  see them���������ay, not in tire blnve of a thousand suns could wc see theru! And so 1  say, with the right pigments, properly  compounded, nn absolutely black paint  could be produced which wr lid render  invisible whatever it was applied to."  "It would be a remarkable discovery,"  I said non-committally, for the whole  thing seemed too fantastical for aught  but speculative purposes.  "Kenrnrkable!" Lloyd slapped me on  the shoulder. "I should say so! Why,  old chap, to cont myself with such n  paint would be to put tiro world nt my  feet. The secrets of kings and court.-  would he mine, the machinations of diplomats nnd politicians, tire double-play  of tricksters, the plans of trusts and corporations I I could keep my hand on the  inner pulse of things nnd become the  greatest power in the world! And I���������'���������  he broke off shortly, then added, "Well,  I" have begun* my experiments, and 1  don't mind telling you that I'm right in  line for it."  A sneering laugh from the doorway  startled us. Paul Tichlorne was standing thore, a sinilo of mockery on hii  lips.  "You forget, my dear Lloyd," he.said.  ;   "Forget what!"  "You forget,'.' Paul went on���������'���������ah, yon  forget the shadow." \  * I saw Lloyd's face drop, but ho answered sneeringly, **T can carry a sunshade, you know." Then he turned suddenly and fiercely upon him. "Look  here, Paul, you'll keep out of this if yor.  know what's good for you.". ���������  A rupture seemed imminent, but Paul  -laughed good-naturedly.   "I wouldn't lay  fingers on your'dirty pigments.   Succeed  I beyond your most sanguine 'expectations,  vet you will always: fetch up against the,  shadow.    You can't-get nway from it  J>T6w* I shall go  on  the very/ opposite  /tack.   In the very nature of my proposition the shadow will be eliminated���������",  "Transparency!" ejaculated' Lloyd instantly.   "But it enn't be achieved."  -   "Oh, no;  of course hot."    And Paul  shrugged his shoulders and strolled J of!  down the briar-rose path.  This was the 'beginning of it. J Both  men attacked the problem with all the  tremendous energy for which they were  noted, nnd with .a rancor and bitterness which made me tremble for the success of either. Each trusted mc to the  utmost, and in the long weeks of experi  mentation that followed I was made a  party to both sides, listening to tlieir  thoorizings and witnessing their demonstrations. Never, by word or sign, did 1  convey to either the slightest hint of the  other's progress, and they; respected, mc  for the seal I put upon my lips.  Lloyd Inwood, after prolonged and un-  interniittent! application, ������hen the tension upon his mind and body became too  great' to bear, had a strange way of cb-  'ta'ining J relief.. He attended prize-fights;  Itwas at one of these brutal exhibitions,  .whither he had dragged me in order to  tell his latest results, that his theory reT  ceived striking confirmation.  "Do you see that red-whiskered man?"  he asked,*pointing across the ring to the  fifth tier of seats on the opposite side.  "And do you see the next man to him,  the one in the white hat? Well, there is*  quite a gap between them, is there not?"  "Certainly," I answered. "Tfhey are a  seat apart.    The gap ia the .-.moccuoicd  seat.":  -^He^leaned=*ovei*=to=inie^and**spoke^scri-=  Jpusly." "Between tho red-whiskered man  and the white-hatted man sits Ben Wesson. You have heard me speak of him.  He is the cleverest pugilist of his weight  in the country. He is also a Caribbean  negro, full-blooded, and the blackest in  the United States. He has on a black  overcoat buttoned up. I saw him when  he came in and took that sent. As soon  as he sat down he disappeared. Watch  closely;  he may smile."  I was for crossing over to verify  Lloyd's statement, but he restrained me.  "Wait," he said.  I waited and watched, till the red-  whiskered man turned his head a*  though addressing the unoccupied seat;  and then, in that empty space, I saw thc  rolling whites of a pair of eyes and tlie  white double-crescent of two rows af  teeth, and for the instant I coultl make  out a negro's face. But with the passing  of the smile his visibility passed, and  the chair seemed vacant as before.  "Were he perfectly black, you could  sit alongside him and not see him,"  Lloyd said; and I confess the illustration  was apt enough to make me ������������������yell-nigh  .convinced.-':.-  I visited Lloyd's laboratory n number of times after that, and found him  always deep in his search after the absolute black. His experiments covered all  sorts of pigments, such as lamp-thicks,  tars, carbonized vegetable matter*?, soots  of oils and fats and tlio various carbonized animal substances.  "White light is composed of the seven  primary colors," he argued to me. "But  it is itself, of itself, invisible. Only by-  being reflected from oojecis do it nnd  the objects become .-isiblc. Hut cn!y  that portion of it thnt is reflected becomes visible. For instance, here is n  blue tobneoo-box. Tlie white light strike*'  against it, and, with ono exception, ali  Us component colors ��������� violet, indigo,  green, yellow, orange and red���������arc absorbed. Thc one exception is blue. It '���������*  not absorbed, but rcllcctcd. Wherefore  the tobacco-box gives us a sensation of  Jil..-iieAi   ,'.%,.. sio-uot aos. i'n* f,i'*nr calori  because they are absorbed. We see only  ihe blue. For the same reason grass Js  jreen. The green waves of white light  ire thrown upon our eyes."  "When we paint our houses we do not  Upply color to them," he said at another  time. "What we do is to apply certain  ���������ubstanees which havo the property of  absorbing from white light all the colors  except those which we would have our  houses appear. When a substance reflects all the colors to tire eye, it seems  to us white. When it absorbs all tho  colors, it is black. But, in I said before,  wo have as yet no perfect black. All  tho colors are not absorbed. Thc perfect  black, guarding against high lights, will  bo utterly arrd absolutely invisible. Look  nt that, for example."  He pointed to thc palette lying on Ins  work-table. .Dilferent shades of black  pigments were brushed on it. One, in  particular, I could hardly sec. It gavo  my eyes a blurring sensation, and I  rubbed them and looked again.  "That," ho said impressively, "Is tho  blackest black you or any mortal man  ever looked upon. But just you wait,  nnd I'll have a black so black that no  mortal man will be ablo to look upon it  ���������and seo it!"  On the other hand, I used to find Paul  Tichlorne plunged as deeply into the  study of light polarization, diffraction  and Interference, single nnd double refraction, and all manner of strange organic compounds.  "Transparency: a state or quality of  body which permits all rays of light to  pass through," he defined for me. "That  is what I am seeking. Lloyd blunders  up against the shadow with his perfect  opaqueness. But I escape it. A transparent body casts no shadow; neither  does it reflect light-waves���������that is, the  perfectly transparent does not. So,  avoiding high lights, not only will such  a body cast no shadow, but sinco it reflects no light, it will also be invisible."  Wo were standing by the window nt  another time. Paul was engaged in polishing a number of lenses, which were  ranged along the sill.   Suddenly, after a  fiause in the conversation, he said, "Oh!  've dropped a lense. Stick your head  out, old man, and see where it went to."  1 Out I stnrted to thrust my bead, but  a sharp blow on the forehead caused me  to recoil. I rubbed my bruised brow and  gazed with reproachful enquiry at Paul,  who  was laughing    in  gleeful,  boyish  fashion. . ...    ���������*.   "Well?" he said. . ;*:.;.  :������������������ ���������'  "Well?" I echoed. ; ���������''���������"'���������' v*"'  "Why don't you investigate?" he demanded.   And investigate I did.   Before  thrusting, out my head,, my senses, automatically active, had told me there was  nothing there, that nothing intervened  between mc. find put-pf-doorsj .that the  aperture of the window-opening was tit.-  tcrly empty.. I stretched forth my hand  and felt a hard object, smooth and cool  and flat, which my touch, out of jts experience, told me to be glass".   I looked  Jagnin, but could see positively nothing.  ���������'   "White qunrtzose snnd," Paul rattled  off, "sodie carbonate, slaked lime, cullet,  manganese peroxide-*-tlrere yoii hnyo Jt,  the finest French plate glass, made by  .the great St. Gobain Company, who made  ���������the finest plate glass in the world, and  "this .is the finest piece they ever made.

That's merely an.' ob*  'ject lesson-certain  elements, jn them-  ..'selves opaque, yet so compounded as tc  give a resultant body which is transpar-  jent.   But that is a matter of inorganic  .chemistry, you say.    Very true.   But I  :dare to assert, standing here on my two  ���������feet, that in the organic lean duplicate  "whatever occurs in tire inorganic."  ���������*..' "Here!"T* He held: a test-tube between  ��������� me and the light, and I noted the cloudy  or muddy liquid it contained.   He emptied the contents of another test-tube  into it, and almost instantly it became  clear and sparkling.  "Or here!" With quick, nervous move-  ���������ments among his array of test-tubes, lit:  Iturned a white solution to a wine color  "and -aj light yellow solution to a dark  jbrown. He dropped a piece of litmus  .'paper, the rocella tinctona, into an acid,  "when it changed instantly tb .red, and  !on floating it in an alkali it turned as  .'"quickly., to blue.  . "The litmus paper is still the litmus  jpaper," he enunciated in the formal man-  Tner of the lecturer. "I have not changed  ���������it into something else. Then what did I  'do? I merely changed the arrangement  of its molecules. Where, at first, it absorbed all colors from the light but red,  its molecular structure was so changed  that it absorbed red and all colors except blue. And so it goes, ad infinitum  Now, what I propose to do is this." He  paused for a space. "I propose to seek���������  ay, and to find���������the proper reagents,  Twhich,-aeting-upon=the=Iiving-organismi=  will bring about molecular changes analogous to those you have just witnessed.  But these reagents, which I shall find,  and for that matter, upon which I already have my hands, will not turn the  living body to blue or red or black, but  they will turn it to transparency. AU  light will pass through it. It will be invisible.   It will cast no shadow."  A few weeks later I went hunting with  Paul. He had been promising me for  some time that I should have the pleasure of shooting over a wonderful dog���������  the most wonderful dog, in fact, that  ever man shot over, so he averred, and  continued to aver till my curiosity was at  fever pitch. But on the morning in question I was disappointed, for there ivas  no dog in.evidence.  "Don't see him ahout," Paul remarked  unconcernedly, and we set off across the  fields.  I could not imagine, at the time, what  was ailing me, but I had a feeling of  some impending and deadly illness. JMy,  nerves were all awry, and, from the astounding tricks they played me, my*  senses seemed to have run riot. .Strange  sounds disturbed me. At times I heard  the sw.ish-swish of grass heing shoved  aside, and once the patter of feet across  a patch of stony ground.  "Did you hear anything, Paul f I asked'  once.  But he shook his head and thrust his  feet steadily forward.  While clinfbing a fence, I heard the  low, eager whine of a dog, apparently  from within a couple of feet of me; but  on looking about me I saw nothing.  I dropped to the ground, limp and  trembling.  "Paul," I said, "we had better return  to the house.. I am afraid I am going  to bo sick."  "Konsense, old man," he answered.  "The sunshine has gone to your head  like wine. You'll be all right. It's fa.--  moua weather."  But, passing along a narrow path  through a clump of oottonwoods, some  .���������oiifici-^brysheji aeainat jny.Je2a.And i  . it ...vi,    l������ imu   null  .

"Trip,  sing over, your own feet?"  I kept my tongue between my teeth  tnd plodded on, though sore perplexed  md thoroughly satisiUd tliat somo acute  md mysterious malady had attacked my  nerves.' So far my cyos had escaped,  Sirt, when we got to the open fields  igain,. even my vision went back on mc.  Strange Hashes of vari-eolored, rainbow  n'ght begiur to appear nrrd disappear on  the path before rrre. Still, I rimnaged to  keep myself in hand, till tlie vnri-colorcd  lights persisted for a space of fully  twenty seconds, dancing and dashing in-  con tin'uous play. Then I sat down, weak  and shaky.  "It's all up with me," I gasped, covering my eyes with my hands. "It has attacked my eyes.   Paul, tnke 1110 home."  But Paul laughed long and loud.  "What did 1 tell you?���������tho most wonderful dog, oh? Well, what do 3-ou  think?"  He turned partly from me and hegnn  to whistle. I heard tire patter of fost,  thc panting of a heated animal, and the  unmistakable yelp of a dag. Then Paul  stooped down and apparently fondled the  empty air.  "Here!    Give ine your fist."  And he rubbed my hand over the cold  nose and josvis of a dog. A dog it certainly was, with the shape and the  smooth short cont of a pointer.  Suffice to say, I speedily recovered my  spirits aird control. Paul put a collar  about the animal's neck and tied his  handkerchief to its tail. And then was  vouchsafed us the remarkable sight of  an empty collar and a waving handkerchief cavorting over the fields. It was  something to see thnt collar and 'handkerchief pin a bevy of quail in a clump  of locusts and remain rigid nnd immovable till wc Iind flushed the birds.  Now and T.gnin the dog emitted the  vnri-colorcd light flashes I have mentioned. The ono thing, Paul explained,  which lie had not anticipated and which  he doubled could be overcome.  "They're a large family," hc said,  "those srrrr (logs, wind dogs, rainbows,  hnlos, nnd* parhelia. They are produced  hy refraction of light from mineral and  ice crystals, 'rom mist, rain, spray and  no end-of lh::igs; and I am afraid they  arc the prir::'.Dy I must pay for ���������'transparency.. I escaped Lloyd's shadow only  io fetch up against the rainbow flash."  A couple of days later, before tire entrance to P.i'ul's*. laboratory, I encountered a terrible stench. So overpowering  was it that it was ensy to discover the  source���������a rirass of putrescent matter on  the doorstep which in general outlines  resembled..a dog. *:  Paul was startled when ho investigated my find. It was his invisible dog, or  rather, what had becui his invisible dog  "     "' "  ' " It had  .    .    ���������.. niriiute;  before in.nil health and strength. Closer  examination revealed that tire skull hnd  been crushed by some heavy blow. While'  it was strange that the animal slionlei  have been kiljed, Jhc inexplicable thing  was thai it should so quickly decay"  "The/reagents I injected'into', its' system ; were ; harmless," Paul explained.  "Yet they were powerful, and it appears  that when death comes thoy force practically instantaneous disintegration. Re**  inv*sV1,cl. iMostxsmarJsaMeL''-Wfl*. tlie  only thing is riot to die. : They do nol  harm so long as one lives. But I do. wonder "who smashed in that dog's head."  Light, however, was tnrbwn upon this  when  a  frightened  housemaid  brought  the news that Gaffer Bedshaw had that  very morning, not more than ah hour1  back,  gone  violently  insane,  and  was  strapped down at home, in the bunts-  man's lodge, where he raved of a battle  with a ferocious and gigantic beast which  he had encountered in the Tichlorne pasture.   He claimed that the thing, whatever it was, was invisible, that with his  own eyes he had seen that it was invisible;    wherefore    his    tearful-wife    and  daughters shook their heads,' and whereforehe but waxed the more violent and  the gardener and the coachman tightened  the straps by another hole.  J  Nor,  while Paul Tichlorne  was  thus  successfully mastering the problem of invisibility, was Lloyd Inwood a whit behind.   I went over in answer fo a message of his to come and see 'how he was  getting on.    Now, his laboratory occupied an isolated situation in thc midst of  his  vast  grounds.    It  was  built in a  pleasant little glade, surrounded on all  aides by a dense forest growth, and was  to be gained by way of a winding and  erratic path.    But I had traveled that  path so often as to know every foot of  it, and  conceive my surprise   when  I  came upon the glade arrd found no laboratory.     Tiro   quaint   shed   structure  ^wUluitsj-ed ..sands tone-c!ilmiicy-was=notf  Nor did it look ns if it ever'had been.  There were no signs of ruin, no debris,  nothing.  I started to walk across what Imd  once heen its site. "Tin's," I said to myself, "should be where thc step went up  to the door," and barely were the words  out of my mouth when I stubbed my toe  on some obstacle, pitched forward, and  butted my head into something that felt  very much like a door. I reached oul*  my hand. It was a door. I found thc  knob and turned it. And nt once, as  the door swung inwnrd on its hinges, Hif  whole intcrior"of the laboratory impinged  upon my vision. Greeting Lloyd, 1  closed the door and backed up the path  a few paces. I could sec nothing of th#  building. Returning and opening the  door, at. once all the furniture and every  detail of thc interior was visible, lt  was indeed startling, the sudden transition from void to light and form and;  color.  "What do you think of it, eh?" Lloyd  asked, wringing my hand. "I slapped a  couple of coats of absolute black on the  outside yesterday afternoon to see how  it worked. How's your head? Yoii  bumped it pretty, solidly, I imagine."  "Never mind tliat," he interrupted my.  congratulations. "I've something better!  for you to do."  While he talked he began to strip, and  when he stood naked before rne lie thrust*  a pot and brush into my hand and said,  "Here, give me a coat of this."  It was an oily, shellac-like stuff, which  tlternate* tension and relax-atio-a of* tho  tnusolss that I moved it, but it defied my  lense of sight. To all appearances I hn'd  teen, shorn of a finger; nor could I get  tny visual impression of it till I extended it under tho skylight and saw its  llradow plainly blotted on the floor.  Lloyd chuckled. "Now spread it on,  nnd keep your eyes open."  I dipped tlie brush .into t'ho seemingly  empty pot, and gave him a Jong stroke  across iris chest.    With  tho passage of ���������  the brush   tho  living lloah  disappeared |  from beneath.    I covered, his right log, i  and he was as a orin-lcggcd man defying,  all laws of gravitation.    And so, stroko j  i>y stroke, member by Member, I painted  Lloyd Inwood into nothingness.   It was  a creepy experience, and I was glad when  naught remained in sight but his burning black eyes, poisod apparently unsupported in mid-air.  "1 hnvu n rollnod and harmless solution for them," he snid. "A Hire spray  with an air-brush, anil presto I I am not."  This deftly accomplished, he said, "Now  I shall move, about, and do you tell mc  what sensations you experience."  "In the. first pjnee, .1 cannot see you,"  I said, and I could bear hia gleeful laugh  from the midst of the emptiness. "Of  course," I continued, "you cannot escapo  your shadow, but thnt was to bo expected. Whon you pass between my  eye and an object, the object disappears,  but so unusual and incomprehensible is  its disappearance that it seems to. me ns  though my eyes had blurred. When you  move rapidly I experience a bewildering  succession of blurs. The blurring sensation makes my eyes ache aRd my brain  tired."  "Have you any other warnings of my  presence?" he asked.  "No, and yes," I answered. "When  you arc near me I have feelings similar  to those produced by dank warehouses,  gloomy crypts, and deep mines. And as  sailors feel the loom of the land on dark  nights, so I think I feci the loom bf your  body. But it is all very vague and intangible."  Long we talked, that last morning in  his laboratory; and when I turned to  go, he put his unseen hand in mine with  nervous grip, and said, "Now I shall conquer the world!"   And I could not dare  They found, mo* an hour alterwtrd.  tome inkling of what had hnpaened got*  lo the servants- and they quitted the  Tichlorno service* in a body.

In narrating his experiences in  the "Tailor and Cutter," he says that as  up  the  driveway  on  my  wheel.    Paul  called me from the tennis court, and I  dismounted and went over.

I took out after it, and when 1  had laid the racquet upon, it for a:hnlf-  dozen 'stout "bloivs, Paul's voice rang out:  "JEnough! Enough! Oh! Ouchl Stop!

But in the midst of our play I felt n  sudden cold chill, reminding me of deep  mines and gloomy crypts, such a chill ns  I had experienced tbat very morning.  The next moment, close to the net, 1  saw a hall rebound in mid-air and empty  space, and at tihe same instant, a score  of feet away, Paul Tichlorne emitted a  rainbow flash. It could not be he fronr  whom the balLhad .rebounded, 1and.with  sickening dread I realized that Lloyd Inwood had come upon the scene. To  make sure, I looked for his shadow, and  there it was, a shapeless blotch tho girth  of his body (the sun was overhead)  moving along the ground. I remembered  his threat,'and felt sure that all the  long years of rivalry were about to culminate in hideous battle.  * I cried a warning to Paul and heard  a snarl, as of a wild beast, and an answering snarl.

In criticizing  the: portrait  of  Lord  Mount  Stephen,  painted by. Sir George Reid, the sarcastic tailor notes a total absence of buttons oh the coat, and declares that the  silk on the fronts is at least an inch too  narrp'.v;    He withcringly condemns. the  painting as "contortions* in black with a  smudge of gray."   Then Solomon J. Solomon ���������comes in for criticism.    "Look at  number seventy-three, a portrait of H. T.  Levy," he says; "the silk on the lapels  ji} indicated as forming a continuation of  the collar, a style bhatno one but an old  woman who is": sometimes, employed to  mend clothes tvould adopt,   it is a libel  on_taiIord6m. : It has the breast"; pbejeef  found and out of all shape, anil the collar is short and turning up.

The horrified tailor declares that there is  no collar seam or buttonhole in front,  and no waist seam or, indeed, any relief  whatever, while the sleeve is halfway up  the elbow. J Mr. Mind says he has .no-.,  patience with artists who are guilty of  such omissions and mistakes.  ing with equal swiftness to meet it; and  then shadow and flash came together  and there was the sound of unseen blows.  The net went down before my frightened  eyes. I sprang toward the fighters, crying:  "Por God's sake!"  But their locked bodies smote against  my knees and I wns overthrown.  "You keep out of this, old man I" I  heard the voice of Lloyd Inwood from  out of the emptiness. And then Paul'!"  voice crying, "Yes, we've had enough of  peacemaking! This settles it for good  and all!"  Prom the sound of their voices I knew  they had separated. I could not locate  Paul, and so approached the shadow tlrat  represented Lloyd. But from the other  side camo a stunning blow on the point  of my jaw, and I heard Paul scream angrily, "Now will you keep away?"  Then they came together again, the  impact of their blows, their groans and  gasps, and the swift flnshings and shad-  ow-movings tolling plainly of the deadlines') of the struggle.  I shouted for help, and Gaffer Bedshaw  came running into the court. I could  see, as he approached, that he was looking nt me strangely, but lie collided with,  the combatants and was hurled end over  end to the ground. AVith one despairing  shriek and a cry of "0 Lord, I've got  'cm!" he sprang to his feet and tore mad-'  ly out of the court.

The custom of handshaking dates back  to prehistoric times, a relrc of tho*������e  savage days when strangers could uot  meet without suspicion of murderoui  purpose. Then all men went abroad with  weapons and shields, arrd, when they met,  would stand in pleasant converse, each  with his shield upon his left arm and  with right hands clasped so that there  Would be no chance for a sudden swing  of the kfrifo or bludgeon. The right  hand was invariably used for the weapon, j  with the result that we are a right-  handed race. The reason for this lay  undoubtedly in the fact that the left  *.rm was always employed in the important work of shielding the heart. .Among  the common people of the Aryan race  tho old pledge of amity in yielding the  right hand to be grasped and held has  since remained the chief token of open  friendship. In the "Iliad" the returning  ���������rhiefs were "greeted with extended j  hands." Even at that remote day the j  early significance of the handclasp had  been lost in the nobler meaning of civilized life. JBut it remains 0. salutation in  which a greater or less degree of equality  Is claimed or conceded. It is, ���������therefore,  possible for a humble person to shake  hands with the President of the United  States, but not with an officer of the  Prussian army.  look-*  -;iiafr==  upo������  A Little Mistake.
