Mr. Oliver, who has technically  withdrawn from the Committee, in  order to conduct tlie examination,  declined, when challenged by the  Chairman, to formulate any specific  charge against the Government.  The evidence so far shows that the  declaration forms, which were alleged  to have been issued by the Government lo assist evasion of the Act, were  but the continuation of forms in use  under t>he former Act, and hnd heen  used when Mr. Mclnnes was Provincial Secretary.

"  ���������Thonia's White Liniment at Bews'  Drug Store,  famous Silver Cup, have met with  reward, .in striking the ore. The  principal development ^has been the  driving *i a 300 foot crosscut tunnel to  tap the vein at an approximate depth  of 250 feet. Their stick-to-it-iveness  has won out and today Joe Kirkpat-  rick, L. Thomson and Harry Carter,  the. trio of prospectors that backed  their faith through years of waiting,  are receiving the hearty congratulations of their numerous friends. After  passing through 12 feet of irony ore  which gave a return of $10 in gold, the  footwall of the vein was cut and  seven feet of rich silver-gold ore,  similar to tho Silver Cup, was passed  through hefore Thompson threw down  his tools on the morning of the recent  find and hastened to came to tell the  good news to his partners.  One likes to hear of these things.  Do you, Mr. Reader, who have never  been in a mine or seen a prospect,  realize what this six years of work  'mean!' How these three partners  rustled at various jobs to furnish the  Tu'cess7uy7:apital"t7f buy^ruli^powder  and steel. How they toiled day in and  day out during the long days of  summer, often doing two regular  day's shift in one, toiled on anil on  hoping some day that their never  swerving purpose���������to strike it���������would  be realized. But Uiey know the game  i.s not yet over. Buyers are to he  secured, more work is tn be done to  open up Ihe ore before Ihey will  realize on six years of strenuosity.  They are only a sample, these hardy  pioneer's of hosts of other- miners who  are toiling and sweating in the bowels  of old mother earth to seek the golden  lleece, Hope i.s oft deferred! Discouragements are numerous, yet we  in this province hardly appreciate  what prospectors are doing for us.  These indefatigable bedouin of the  hills are making Brjtish Columbia the  banner mining country of the world.  All praise to'them I  Card of Thanks  Mrs. S.

Shrouded in Mystery  Fort Frances, Ont,, Jan. 13.���������A  terrible tragedy took place at Frog  Creek, .3 miles north of here,some time  Inst evening, which is shrouded in  mystery. Two men by the nanrt' of  Wm. Watson and John Scott were  engaged last week to cut wood for A.  Dowker, on the farm of one James McJ  Kay, and were allowed the use of a,  shanty on an adjoining claim. Mr.  Dowker visited {.henr ou Sundny.when  Scott complained of being sick. On  Monday night, a, gentleman' named  Cole, passing by, heard the door shut  and thai'is the last heard of  the men.  This morning when Cole and another man were passing hy, they  thought something wa.s wrong, and  going*into the shanty, found it empty.  On the lloor tbey .picked up a case*;  knife and whetstone, covered with  blood, ami ou examining ' the  bed, found it *in thc same  condition. On searching near the  house they, found the body of Watson  leaning against a stump with a gash  in the throat and the head knocked in.  A little further on they found Scott  lying in the snow, frozen still'  no marks apparent ou hiin. As  hud heen dead for some time.  Watson [could have received  terriblo wounds is a nrysteiy.  Watson is said to be from I^mnrk  County, Omaha, and was about <I0  years of age, and is suppo'sed to have  a wife and family.  It i.s not known where Scott came  from. Ho was.abont 00 years of age,  and clean shaven. Both men were  addicted to drink and had been hanging round town since the New Year.  with  Scott  how  such  Imperial Bank  The finishing lumber for the interior  of the new Imperial Bank building  will be here from the coast by the end  of the w������ek, when Contractor Ker-  naghan with his stalf of carpenters  will commence the inside work. ��������� The  plastering has been completed and  Moscrop Bros, are busily engaged installing the heating apparatus. Mr.  Kernaghan expects the building to he  ready for occupancy by the first of  March,  refused to act when she was six ruiles  of her wharf at Victoria. Then she  became unmanageable. Some time  before midnight she was picked up bv  a. tug \vhich'tried to tow her back'to  Port Townsend.  But she was too much of a wreck  even then, and she foundered close to  Smith Island. She went down in -10  fathoms.  The passengers aboard the steamer  Clallum numbered 39, and the crew  31: total aboard 00. The number- lost  Ts .>!; saved 30. The male passengers  lost numbered 20: female Jo: children,  4; crew 0. The passengers saved  numbered 11, and the crew 22. The  vessel was a regular daily passenger  packet. She made moderately good  progress across the Straits bound for  Victoria, until Trial Island, otf the  entrance to the harbor, was abeam.  Then a. terrific cross-sea was pelting]  the vessel, retarding her progress and  making life uncomfortable for those  aboard. Little fear was manifested  until word came up from lielow ihat  the vessel wTfe* leaking. Investigation  showed that the waves on the windward side had stove in a dead light  through which the water1 rushed in  volumes', resisting all efforts to he  checked, the safely of the passengers,  pat liculai'ly the women and children,  wa.- looked after, and all who desired  were put oif from the steamer- irr the  ship's boat',.  The heavy laden boats were ihrown  aboul wildly in the choppy sea and.  one after .-mother, nfter succeeding in  getting away from the ve-sel. were  either capsized or swamped.  The terrible fury of the .storm is al.  tesled hy the. fact t hat rrot a woman or  child of those on hoard the small boats  which left the ship, when she was lirst  in danger, lived to tell the tale.  A fleet of powerful tugs wore despatched from Port Townsend to render  assistance. The Richard Holyoke, iu  command of Captain Robert Hall, wa.s  the lirst to reach the Clallam, which  had by this time, careened |iartly over  from the inrush of water which had  put the engines out of commission.  The Holyoke reached the Clallam  about 11 o'clock at night and about one  a. in. succeeded in getting a hawser  aboard. She started to tow the Clallam to safety, but the steamer took a  heavy lurch and those on Iioard were  compelled to climb to the roof of the  pilot-house for safety.  Without a moment's hesitation the  tug's boats were lowered and the work  of rescue liegau  of S. E. Bolton, a business man of Al-  lierta. who with her husband k&d re-  cently !>een staying at the Oriental  hotel in this city, says the Victoria  Colonist. Mrs. Bolton was drowned  within speaking distance of her.husband, who was powerless to' render  aid and who last night returned to this  city almost insane with grief over the  loss of his bride.  Mr. and Mrs. Bolton were wedded in  Alberta ten days ago and had been  spending their honeymoon on tho  Sound. They were returning home, byway of Victoria and took passage for  this city on the Clallam. When the  vessel first became distressed and it  was determined to launch"; the boats  with the women and children, Bolton  brought his wife on deck and tenderly-  handed her down the ladder in charge  of Capt. Lawrence, the volunteer who  took charge of the life ciaft.'  Passengers who witnessed thepart-  iiig~l>eEween Bolton and'lTiswffi "state  that their farewells were heartrending,  but this incident did not equal the  scene which followed a few minutes  later. Bolton stood on the forward  deck with his eves riveted on the mere  shell which, with jts burden of human  freight, was caught, up hy the angry  sens and carried away in the teeth of  the storm that lushed the straits into  a fury. Suddenly I lollon saw a monster"  wave tower-up and come rolling towards the frail t-raft. Wiih a cry of  agony he seemed to realize the impending fate of his bride and hid his face in  horror-at Ure situation. A moment  later, when he again turned his gaze  towards the spot where the boat which  carried his precious bur-den, had last  been seen, all evidences of it had  vanished. A few piercing screams  from women and children reached the ' '  deck of the Clallam ahove the roar of  the storm as the sea, swallowed up its  helples-s victim".  Bolton stood for a moment as if  transfixed, but when the full import of  his loss dawned upon hiru his grief  was pitiable to behold. He strode the  deck calling upon the sea to give'hint  back his bride, and passengers for the  moment forgot their own peril to  sympathize with the distracted husband. Finally Bollsn was overcome  by the helplessness of the situation,  and, becoming desperate, it is believed  he would have thrown himself into  the sea. had not passengers taken him  in.charge. '  "1 never witnessed a more harrowing 'thing than Bolton's grief." said  Purser Freer. "His suffering was  something   terrible   to   witness, "nnd.

God, as  representing the very highest, because  most perfect, mastery, and Mammon,  as demanding the very lowest, because  the most degrading, service���������each is an  imperious and exacting master, and no  man can be loyal to both. Their wills  are so different, their commands =n^opposite and their ends so antagonistic  that the occasion must frequently rise  when one or the other will have to bc  despised arii disobeyed if the other  bc honored and served. Try as we may  to elude the difficulty, of the situation,  ive are forced to enlist in the secvice  o: the one or the other.

Cream That Will Keep. '���������  I  will   give  our  method  of  making  a  fancy  cream,    which   will  keep- for  ivceks without souring, in a very few  words, as thc whole secret of our success lies in absolute purity and cleanliness in everything, from beginning to  end.    It rccpiircs  much  more care to  produce clean milk than any other iood  product, and wore the consumers aware  or   the   impurities  in   the   larger   part  of the  dairy products  ou the  market,  there  would  be  a  small  sale  for  the  same.   The consumer is much to blame,  for  this  condition of  things.    If    the  people would demand a better arti.de,  and will be willing to pay foK-the extra cost, there are many dairymen who  would be willing to take, the pains re  quired to furnish clean milk and cream.  Our first aim is to keep thc stables  and cows  as clean  as  possible.    Tne  cows are brushed and the udders washed before  milking.    No hay is  fed at  this  time,  as ' the  dust  in  falling  w;!'.  carry  into  the milk  the  germs  which  are  found floating in all  cow-stables.  The bacteria thus introduced will give  to   the   milk    *:he -same   disagreeable  flavor as the filth from the cow.    To  keep the dust and dirt from the milk  we use a pail covered with two thicknesses   oi    cheesecloth,   between    thc  folds of which is placed a layer of absorbent cotton.    In^tliis way the milk  comes  to the  dairy house nearly free  from all impurities.    The greatest care  is taken to have every utensil in thc  dairy thoroughly cleansed and  scalded  every  time  it  is   used.     No   half-way  :work will answer here.   No'sour germ  can lurk in the can or strainer without  altccl-ihg the cream.   In fact, no odor  or germ must be allowed in or around  the dairy house;  After separating, thc cream is cooled  quickly  and kept in a tank of ice  water until bottled for shipment. You  will  see  irom  my description  of    our  nacthods that it is simply keeping the  milk absolutely clean. and_ cooling as  soon   as -possible   after   milking,   that  give  our  cream  its   fine    flavor    and  keeping  qualities.     Choice  cream   and  butter  cannot,   be   made     from   filthy-  milk, and our dairy inspector will have j  filled an important part of his mission, i  and   rendered   to   the   public   a   most 1  commendable   service   when   he     shall .  have awakened the dairy- farmer to the !  importance of producing a pure, ciein  Rateher.

And Rateher  laughed big bass gratitude at the information.  "How old are you?*' shouted Rateher.  "Oh, don't yell." said Jones. "Ninety-  live.    I'll go to bed."

Hero, then, are two dit'licullies  to be avoided, which arc heal and  cold. What the farmer wish.es is to  store the roots rrr sueh manner as to  keep them at an even temperature,  preserve them in a. good condition,  and to be easily handled when he  wishes to tne them for fecdinur. Of  course, it is well known that the time  for storing the crops is in the tall,  but it is never too late to repack tlrem.  which can bc done when thc weather  is only moderately cold. The best plan  for so doing is to get some dry dirt,  coal ashes or dry sawdust, in a bin,  barrel or box lay two inches of thc  packing material, and. upon this make  a layer of roots and do not let them  quite touch one another. Fill the  spaces with packing material, and so  continue until thc receptacle is f.rll.  By this method they can bc taken out  fpr use in any quantity desired, and  they will keep much better than if  stored in heaps, will not freeze nor  heat, and will keep until the next crop  comes in. Even potatoes, both sweet  and white, may bc thus preserved. Be  careful that the packing material is  dry.. Moisture should be* avoided -rrs  much as possible. At thc present time  the difficulty' is to procure dry dirt,  which is thc best material to use,  while wood ashes arc not plentiful.  Fine sawdust is thc next best substance, but not equal* to dry dirt.  Plaster is excellent, hut somewhat expensive. Wheat chaff is good, and so  is straw when cut in half-inch lengths.  It is best to do such work, however,  at the time of harvesting thc crop.���������  Philadelphia Record.

for thu evomag jaunt, in the hallway

smilingly; "I should like '��ne of those

As Loraine handed .'to him the

she said.
"If they axe -not, they certainly

"Then Shakespeare never would

they woo, ibut December when they

"Your skill shall never 'chime,

out the sentence that he( read in ihe
limpid blue eyes upraised to his own.
Loraine's face ,*flushed to the exquisite- hue of a. blush- rose; h-r

Swiss custom, the entire length of the
building, accessible from the ground
floor by a. flight of stops from
either end, a. gentleman who had evidently awaited her witb no little impatience, stepped gracefully forward,
extending his hands.
Tall, stalely, self- possessed, she
went forward to greet him.

over the slender, white hand, "need I

fell between them. Loraine Ulvesford would have started brick in
.horror had she beheld the terrible expression on the darkly- handsome
face turned from her, or could have
probed lhe terrible resolve ihat Jay-
brooding in his heart. "
Tho one answer Loraine had spoken,
forged the last link in the fatal chain

bitter anger, maddened at the

excoeded by hits annoyance upon recognizing Heath Hampton, whom he

Ulmont liad quite forgotten the old
unhappy forebodings that had enfolded him.
Heath Hampton's face, dark, flashing and brilliant, filled him wilh -a
strange sense of pain.
-He had thought he had Loraine all

He found himself wondering if it
was merely a chance accident - that
brought Heath Hampton just then
to Switzerland.
Ulmont knew, although they had
boon rivals, as his countryman he
must greet him at least courteously,
if not cordially.
The Ulvesfords were a deep- loving
raoe, .self- willed and exacting.

Meanwhile Ulmont was wondoring,
as he entered tho room where she sat,
what Bhe would sny when he told her
Heath namptou had decided to ro-
maln in Savoy, accompanying them
on their homeward trip to America.
'An exclamation of surprise and dismay broke from Loraine's lips, which
(She instantly repressed. No matter
what her own rtecret feelings were
on the subject, she believed she had
no right .to raise nn objection if her
husband really desired his presence.
While Ulmont, as he watched Loraine's face narrowly, was thinking:
"How foolish I was, after all, to
ever imagine my Loraine cared for
Heath Hampton."
The week that followed was the
most eventful one that had ever come
to the gay, careless life of Ulmont
Ulvesford; a week which brought the
bitterest off bitter fruits, which
were to be deep, sown in his heart.
There were straJige whisperings among the' tourists, .-who ".watched with
darkening brows the assiduous attention the dark- browed stranger paid

asked themselves, to permit it? Why
was he so blind?

oould seo that the fair young wife, in
action, thought and word, was as
pure as the white lilies that lay an
the tranquil bosom of the stream
down in the smiling valley.
She was utterly innocent and ignorant ot the world of sin, or the

One friend, more daring than the
rest, who had a fair young! bride of
his own, whom he quite idolized, ventured to remonstrate .with Ulmont in
a mild way.
"I have heard Mr. Hampton was
quite attached to your wife at one
time, Mr. Ulvesford," ho said carelessly.
"That was all nonsense," laughed
Ulmont, good- hvumoredly; "he "had
quite a fancy for my1 wife at one
time, I believe. We have often
laughed over -our wine about it
"There are many men whose first
love is'the one grand, supreme -passion of their lives," ;remerked Wylmer
Lee, gravely.
-"How seriously .-you are inclined to

and waving the curling rings of
smoke away with his  hand. (
''Contemplation makes me serious,"
remarked his fellow traveler; "1 have

He remembered vividly how, the
Count de Itisoar, a personal friend
of Hampton's, had engaged him so often for hours at a time in ,his subtle,
graceful way, while dloath Hampton
invariably talked with Loraine.
On Ulmont's previous visit to

AU   tho  day   that   follo'wed.     Heath
Hampton    hovered   like   a   persistent
shadow    around   Loraine,   who   v was
quite annoyed ut hi-i attention.
"Why," she asked herself, sorrowfully, "did Ulmo-tt, her husband, seem
to prefer the society of the Frenchman to her own, leaving her to spend
the lonely hours as tsest she might 5n
the society of 'Heath Hampton?"  -
The scenery from ;Loraine's window
was sublime; yet. ns she stood tliere
in her royal, azure-tinted robe, the
breeze toying wilh'the soft lace thatt
encircled her throa't, and loosened hei
golden hair in which n sprav of blot*,
soms clung, she -was not thTnking w'

eye rested; she had pusbed aside her
books, the very sunliglu and the. flowers tired hor; she was glad, she < oln
herself, slie was to strii-t for Am&ric.-i
on the morrow.
Loraine was waiting for her lius-
ba-nd; she had no heart, no thought
away from him. and lhe hours seemed
dirzll  and 'long whicli -parted  them.
Again sho took up her book, but the
story had' no power lo charm her.
She 'laid her fair young cheek on
the crimson cover, -with the question
on   hex red ,,lips:
"Why docs Ulmont not como *to me?"

-unnoticed, so engrossed were tlrey in
-the ~-recital of seme story from the
reminiscence of Hampton's -exploits.
"Ah, yes, gc.ni'ierm-n," coni.riueil

marry her then, but 1 suppose thero
is a double charm aboul her now that
she is beyond your reach, eh, Hampton?" remarked some loquacious, bystander. - ��� -
A low, sardonic" laugh broke from
-Heath Hampton's lips, a laugh that
froze ihe blood in Ulmont's heart as
-he heard it.
"Loraine   will always  ibe   the  most
charming  .girl  in   tire   world  in  my
���eyes;    let   us   drink,   gentlemen,"    he
cried, "to the fair beauty .of Loraine!''

"Sit down, Wylmer; thank God, "J

The netrt instant Heath Hampton
had received a stinging blow in tho
face that sent him reeling into De
lUsnar's arms.        ,
"Now, coward thnt you are," cried
Ulmont, white to the very lips, "apologize this instant for tuking my .wi'e's

"New.r," ; cried' Heath Hampton,
"reckleesly, his cheeks'flushed, and a

playing about the lumber wliarves
in Bangor, he gave promise of liis
ability at financiering, his old neighbors say. A circus was coming to

Then hc had an inspiration.
All the water which came to the
circus grounds was brought through
a wooden tunnel from far up the lull.
Its source was an old spring, scld nn
visited and hard of access. Frank
waited until the morning parade was
over and the circus help were Iur gry
for their midday iiic.nl. Then he
mounted the hillside nnd inserted a
wooden plug in the tunnel. Uy the
time he liad reached the grounds he
found everything ripe for a strike.
The water had ceased to run.
"Say, mister, gimme a ticket, an' I'll
fix it for you," he offered.
"Fix it, and you can have half a
dozen," cried the manager.
Inside of ten minutes the plug was
removed, and the horses were drinking their fill. And the boy Frank
took five bosom friends to the show.

to sell no more stock in the big corporation.    The directors felt   that   it.   was
simply tin-owing away   money  '.o sell
any more stuck, when the.money to be
derived, from such   stock  was  not required.     If the  mill  cannot   turn   orru-

"Woo betide the forest gianc when, ho  falls into tho clutches of Che ehisia or  lis. Its sco-is being provided with a  pulp, which is very pleasant to the  tasto o������ a great number ot" birds, are  carried irom tree to tree and deposited ou the branches. Here it germinates, the leafy ste-ni rising upward aud  the roots flowing', as it were, down tho  trunk until tliey reach the soil. At.  lirst these aerial roots are soft and  ilollc-ate, with apparently no more  power ior evil than so many streams  ot pitch, which thoy resoluble in thoir  slowly llowlng motion downward. Hero  and there they branch, especially if an  obstruction is met with, when tho  stream either chances its courso or di-  yiaoa to right nnd left  Meanwhile leafy branches havo been  developed, which push themselves  through the canopy above and get into  tho light, where their growth is enormously accelerated. As this takes  place the roots have generally reached  tho ground and begun to draw sustenance from below to strengthen die  whole plant. Then comes a wonderful  development. The hitherto soft aerial  roots begin to harden and spread  wider and wirier, throwing out side  branches which flow into and amalgamate wirtr each other until the  whole tree-trunk is hound in a series  of irregular living hoops.  Tho stranger is now- ready for its  deadly work. The forest giant, like  all exogons, must lrave room to increase in girth, and here he is hound  hy cords which are stronger than iron  band3. Like an athlete, he trios to expand and burst his fetters.and if they  wero rigid he might succeed. ��������� * *  The bark bulges between every interlacing���������bulges out, and even tries  to overlap, but the monster has taken  every precaution against ihis by making its bands very numerous and wide.  As the tree becomes weaker its  leaves begin to fall, and this gives  more room for its foe. Soon the stran-  gler expands itself into a great bush  almost; as large as the mass of  branches and- foliago it has effaced.  * * * If we look carefully around  us we see examples of entire obliteration���������a clusia, or lig, standing on its  reticulated hollow pillar, with only a  heap of brown humus at its base to  show what has become of the trunk  which onco stood up in all its majesty on that spot.���������Guiana Forest.  !TI0 072 .",i  ?  10 172 54  Hew School BuiUdsng Account.

Nine years ago an Atchison man  was induced- to subscribe for a publication known rts "Picturesque Egypt."  He was to pay SI a month for a volume on dilivory. The publication,  would last only a few months, 'the  smooth agent told him, and he would  riot miss the snrall sum of $1 a month.  The books are still coming. The man  has had to buy three new book cases  to put the volumes in. He has had  business reverses, and often had .to  deny' himself the' necessities of life,  but the;Sl a month x>n his "Picturesque Egypt" had''to ho paid. He was  worried so much about this dollar and  where' he will eventually find room  for tho hooks that his mind has failed  him. and he now spends his days in  sitting around muttering to himself:  "Only $1 a month for 'Picturesque  Egynt.' Won't miss 'it. Only $1 a;  month, and an art gallery to be proud  of when I get through."  Water and Light Department.  RECEIPTS:  To cash on band. Jan. 1.

HE "Electric" left the Fifteenth Street Terminal in
Kansas Ci*-f =s tii^ ycllo,v
dawn of an OctODer morning; the car, with its snub
nose and projecting forward cage, nosing on like a great catfish across bridges, railroad switches and
oross streets up to Ninth street, where
it headed .toward the town of Inde-
pendence, Mo., at a smooth, swimming gait. Jusrt beyond the Belt
Crossing the motorman glanced bad*.
*t the conductor for an enquiring
half second, the enquiry being, "Do 1
dareT" a.nd the conductor flashed back
at the motorman, "Sure, dare!" The
motorman's eyes were shining and th��
conductor's eyes were shining. The cai
began to go faster. Beyond Sheffield, ir.
the open stretch with its sprinkling ol
country houses, the speed was a thing
to question, and, quitting the rear cage
where he had heen talking to two men
the conductor passed through the cai
to the motorman out front. Two or
three of the few passengers aboard, whe
were noticing, were glad to see that tht
conductor was disposed to put a stop tc
the motorman's foolishness.
In the forward cage the conductor
nis breath issuing explosively in steam*,
whiffs, was shrieking to the motorman:
"Jimmy! Mr. Shore says a hundred
more if we reach. Shore Station in fifteen minutes!    Let her go!    Let hei
g��r       '
. Then he passed back through the car
humming to hide his excitement fron
the passengers.
"See here," .said an uneasy man
plucking at the conductor's sleeve as hi
passed, 'what's this for? Ain't we a-go
Jngtoo fasti"
"Fastr** repeated the conductor, wit!
��'look of competency betrayed, "fast!'
He passed on haughtily, but turned, or
Heme charitable impulse, to say bebinc
his hand, "We are runnin' on skedaddli
cthne,' but that's an expert at the motor
needn't worry, no matter how fast wi
?o." With that, he went on back ti
he rear, where the two men were wait
ing for him, the eyes of both burning
with impatience and distress. One p
them, a big fellow, who seemed to earn
one arm with a little nursing care, anc
who looked ill despite his great size
thundered impotently at the conductor
"See here, Henry, what are we crawl
ing along like this for? If this is thi
beet you can get out of this damnec
"Well, I tell you, Mr. Shore," inter
posed the conductor soothingly, "I'll le'
you come through and stand by Jimmy
Then you can see how fast we are goin'
and mabby that'll quiet you."
"Let's do that. Let's move up then
in front, Hardin.". As he spoke thi
slighter and, taller of the two met

his feet,.and with the case in one hant

strange, white radiance.
An hour later the woman, after a
briefly conscious interval, was sleeping;
Hardin Shore sat in the next room with
a look of hope on his face; in the lower
hall the two doctors were talking the
case over softly, Carey telling what he
had done and had been just about to do,
the other not listening, but acquiescing
and approving, all after the dicta of tho
Code; in the room assigned to the
nurses the two who were to go were
packing their traveling cases in open
"Who-all is he anyway, this new man,
I wish you'd say," grumbled one. She
was the girl who had been last on dutv
in the sick-room, and there was a significant resentment in her tone.
"A country doctor, from that little
town of Penangton down the riyer
where >��� Mrs. Shore used' to live, that's
all the who," answered the other, equally petulant; "a friend who runs the
Shores, if I can read anything���sending
people away I"
"And whit's his name?" pursued the
first   speaker,  that  trained    blankncss
again on her face.
"But his first name?"
"I d'n* know-Garth, I believe."
"Oh, I see!"
"See what?"
A look of ostentatious discretion
passed over the face of the first nurse;
she would not say what, and presently
the two went out of the house and back
to the city with Carey.
The people who were left ranged up.
watchful and alert, under Henderson's
leadership, for their fight with the fever.
"It's treacherous, typhoid," Henderson
told Hardin Shore in the very beginning; "it will double on us, it will let
us hope, it will cheat us, it will lead us
on a long trail, the old tangler." He
had; got immediately at the woman's notion that the dizziness of her head was
the ceaseless twisting and turning of an
aeriform Something that flew with her.
and he expressed himself with an unconscious assumption of her fancy. "411
wc can do," he told Shore, "is to keep
up with it, keep a hand on it, till we
tire it put, then pull her back to us."
The Shore child was sent away, and
from morning until night there was no
Sound in the grea.t house, save the coming and going of careful servants and
the low whispered word; but througl)
it all, up to the day of the last crisis,
the household having responded confidently to Henderson's, presence, the
house seemed less sensitively prescient
that disaster, hovered, over it;: the ser
vants smiled sometimes, and in far eor-
Dcrs of the grounds the small black chiJ
dren laughed gayly.
"I feel that I'm unfair to you, a regular burden, Henderson," said Shore, who
stayed near the sick-room helplessly but
enviously; '"still, I don't know where tc
begin to 3top it. I'm foolish about you.
I want you to be in there with her al!
the time, and when you arc not with
her, I have to have you with nie."
For a number of years Shore, through
a. long fight of his own with disease, hat
been expressing this sort of dependence
upon Henderson; for years, through
long tests of friendship, he had been utterly trustful; for years, through blinding mist3 of passion, Henderson hail
been entirely reliable, entirely true; foi
years the .woman, had stood between
them; until now, her eyes always insistently upon Hardin Shore's eyes, hei
hand sometimes in Henderson's hand in
secure friendliness, a delicate protective
aura playing from her consciousness like
a Juminous -ether, .through winch Hen-
have dared look if he could.
That had been the way for years. Bu-,
now, out on the red range of the fever,
had not the luminous veil fluttered rag
gedly back, and for onee, whether he
would or not, had he not seen beneath
it? "GarthI Garth!" she had cried, and
had clung to him. .Was it all the.crazl-
ness of the fever���had she not known
him? The mad question became a companion thing of that hurrying delirium
of hers, leading him on and on after
her, twisting, turning, coiling. Anil over

of the generic truth that the revelations of delirium were reliable for the
purposes of the pathological novel only,
not for any honest weighing of things;

finally, nnd specifically, whatever this
particular woman said in her delirium,
the fact remained Hint in the full possession of her faculties she handed herself nnd her great power of loving to
her husband more unequivocally, more
fully, and more beautifully than nny
woman in the world. Then he would
go back to her again.

Across the black quiet of the nigh*,
another figure was vaguely outlined at
the orchard wall. Shore was standin-

as Henderson came up silently.   "I followed  you out  here.    I can't  stay  in

The bride was pale, ns t  [bride"should be: she had lost, as hi  guossed by the trembling fingers, over  ���������Susy at disentangling rice grains, tin  eelf-possession which had long com  Branded his respect. She was still aloof  llbut she was agitated: she was urreerfcair  ���������of herself, and he had not cxpectei  Shis.  There had been some talk of coniiiiitii  ity of interests between them; they had  ���������stood upon a common ground of well  .wishing; there had been no mention oi  3ove.    This was a business  transaction  ��������� ������,.  union' of interests in which, he assured  Siraself drearily, he was lucky to receive  ���������oom-tcsy and to be able to return it wit!  ���������esteem. He was to give her his name-  it was an honorable name, and he wishec  Abat he could have more worthily up  Cield it���������and the protection of whicli 9  (rich, lonely woman found crying need  :*That was for happiness, since happinc;'  could not be found in tho inheritance ol  great fortune and in youth and indepen  dence. She gave him,'in return, as mucl  of the; despised hoards as he cared ' tr  finger, prosperity in place of an incon  gruous poverty, a helping hand to pit!  tim out of pecuniary deep waters. Tin  place to which'lie'was born���������his birth  right���������wns handed back to him for bene  fits received. There���������it was a simpb  ���������bargain.  The solemn echoes of the marriage set  vice tingled in his ears.   lie had not beer  given  to  thinking  upon  serious  thing-  He had taken life ns it came and dot*.'  his best, even  under difficulties,  to  cr'  joy it;  he winced as he wondered  hov  .the words he had spoken felt to men r  whom  they brought  rapture and   fiilii  ment; to whom women such as sho gin  .���������-themselves, not  their chattels only:   t  whom marriage was a door that opene  upon love and loyalty, not upon a b-rrti  of gold.   She had been  till  that day-  she was now���������a thing incomprehensihl.'  lofty, apart; it was not until their hand  touched as man and wife that he undci  stood that' they were linked together, .  gulf between them of their own digging  - ������nd yet they two alone, thc rest of th'  ���������world a world away from them, ne ho*  not thought of this". He had thought to-  llittle of the less obvious aspects of thei  action. Now they intruded themselves-  they humiliated him, and he could no:  escape them. It was not all desire fo  the name that brought her to him; sir-  wanted protection���������a friend. Good hen  veils! Was this the way to establi-1  friendship? Hc had lost his confidence:  he was ashamed, childishly afraid t<  look her in the face.  Lord Alresford coughed   and fidgetcci  - Her agitation, the restlessness of tho<:  beautiful fingers, meant emotion, anc1  emotions were barred. Did she feel com  punction, too? Had she foreboding':  She was surciy above these things as she  was above hiin. But he could do his par  in smoothing the stony road they lino  elected to travel together. His inipul������  ���������was generous; his words tumbled out  awkwardly.  "I'm awfully glad it's over; ain't you?'  ���������Lady Alresford started out of hei  thoughts. She looked up with eyes from  which the tears were not far distant:  and she found something, to relieve hoi  in tho sight of the young man, with hi  curiously English air of sportsman, soldier, and well-groomed schoolboy.  "Yes." .  "I never did see any fun in a wod  ding," Alresford went* on, desperately  gabbling nonsense because her mono  syllable had been tremulous. "Just silly  ��������� rot���������old asses making speeches. an' fellows tryin' to bc funny, and always hot  Never knew a wedding that wasn't hot  And, 'gad, what a mob of women!"  "I thought it was very kind of somr  of thein to speak as they did, considcrine.  how little they knew of me. They were  your friends, you know. And-your~8iT  ters were very nice."  "Isabel is a jolly good sort," Alresforn  said. "Kathleen is rather inclined to put  on airs since she married, though wlrat  there is to brag about in buttons���������"  He stopped dead nnd Hushed under the  brown. Ho could have bitten out hit  reckless tongue, for,between buttons tine  the cotton-spiuning source of his bride'.1  fortune there was nothing, in his mind  to choose. It was. curious that he per  sisteutly lost, in; conversation with her  the remembrance :-of: the ruck of stull'j  Midland respectability from whicli cotton���������and a few other things���������had lifted  her. He spoke to her as to one of his  kind, admitting her unconsciously to the  ���������freemasonry of the innercircle. He pulled  up now and lloundered. dumbly.  Lady Alresford came to the rescue.  "I thought Kathleen was particular!}  pleasant," she said.    "And who was tin  .pretty   woman    in    silver   grey���������dark  bright color���������who was so very gracious!  She  seemed   to   assume a���������well, - I sup  ?ose I must call it a patronizing atti  ude; but it was not offensive."  '.'IMrs. Arlington?   Did she?   Oh, thn-t'i  very good."   Alresford recovered liimsel'  and laughed.   "Very good.   You see, tin  point lies in tlie position of the man-wit!  'her." "'������������������"-.  ';������������������    "And  he?"

Then  iisn't a bit of real vice in ISarllinhi. aty  be is a splendid fellow; but, of cour������&  if a man is left to himself   . '.   ."  Lady Alresford looked thoughtful.

Yet why should  it matter to her?  "What will happen when ne goes to  India?" ,   _    ^  "His wifo won't go, I know that. Daro  say Mrs. Arlington will run out to seo  what Anglo-Indian life is like. . . .  And that reminds me. it's the 'Camp-  aspe,' not the 'Punjabi.' we've goin' in.  The chief told me so this afternoon."  "A fortnight earlier! In a month!"  "Yes. So yorr sec"���������he looked at her  with deprecation���������"we sha'n't have to  keep it up for long. Only a month, and  then you can work out all your own plans  without having to consider this dual arrangement. I���������1 wanted to tell you. I  feel a brute about it. But. I won't bother  you. I'll keep out. of your way as much  as I can."  It was the bride's turn to flush. Sire  did so delicately.  "You hurt m.j when vou speak liko  that."  Alresford stared.  "I���������hurt you!    Wiry?"  "Yoii seem to think you arc���������obnoxious.   Wc were to be friends, weren't wc?  Is it good fellowship to say that I dislike  you?"  "Xo; but���������it was your���������plan, you  know, as well as mine.   We agreed���������"  "That you should go to India and I  stop at "home. O! course. But why  should I be so anxious for you to go?  You know, it seems absurd to say it to  ���������to one's husband, but then we are not  an ordinary married pair���������I like your,  friendship and your company. You are  one of the very few men I have known  who gave me that friendship in all honesty, without afterthought. It was because of that I suggested to you what  followed."  The bridegroom looked at her in astonishment. Had there been no con-  ' tempt, then, in her mind; when he agreed  ���������call it, rather, fell into temptation? '  '1 take all the responsibility," the  bride went on. "You were too������������������" ���������  she was going to say "simple-minded,"  but checked herself���������"honest to suggest  the thing. I wanted a haven away from  the difficulties that beset me, handicapped by a woman's weakness and this���������  money, and beset on all sides by' people  who might, have made me doubt all the  world. But I found you, the only siugle-  minded one among them all. And so 1  came to you to shelter me. Do you think  you do not stand out in my mind as my  best friend? And is one so anxious to  lose one's only friend?"  An odd thing befell Lord Alresford  His imagination began to work, and. te  see visions faT beyond the level plains ti  which he had limited himself.

Then he jumped to his feet, anc  the blow of concussion threw him back  again. The roar of the tunnel swcllec  with crashes and thunder soundsand-tin  hiss of steam, and with a frantic, dislo  eating jar the train came to a standstill.  He exclaimed that it was an accident;  but his voice was lost in the rattle of  falling stones and the hubbub of voice--  and wounded machinery.- He shouted:���������  "DorisI are you there?"  "I am not in the least hurt," said th<  bride's voice out of the blackness. "Something dreadful has happened outside; 1  can near groans. Let mc���������let us go and  help. ... I cannot find the door  handle."  "Stay where you arc," he commanded.  "You are not hurt'"  "I am absolutely .uninjured. But���������  listen���������let me go."  Lord Alresford groped his way to her  end of the. carriage, and for answer  clicked the spring lock, swung himseli  into the unseen, and snapped the door  upon her.  "You   must  not  move.    Promise  mi  you will not move!"  "Someone is wounded���������needs help. Will  you let me "  "Nol I am going myself now to see.  There's i    .antern.    Hey, guard!"  He snatched nt the arm of a man who  raced past. The man, who had a lamp  in his hand, swore at him.  "Let me pass. There's the deuce to  pay up yonder.   Jim!    Thank heaven, i-:  that you?"   "Aye, it's me." Thc lantern shone on  a grimy fireman. "She's off the rails  and the two thirds arc head over heels.  Don't know how or why, but there's awful trouble���������the carriages swung off the  line and were battered agin the stonework.   Come on."  "I'm coming to give a hand," said Al  rcsford.  "Who's i that?" snapped the fireman.  "The place is alive with steam and splinters. Don't want no amateurs. Second  ������������������arriage is atop of the other, and it's  not a good balance, either."  "All rtglit,"; Alresford said, cheerfully.  "That'll just suit me. I suppose this lady  is safe here?" ���������  "Yes. Well, if you will, c6me_ oni"  The glimmer of the lantern swung for-  .ward into the blackness arid was swallowed up. The two men vanished. ��������� Alresford hung back a moment to throw a  few words of-encouragement into the  carriage window; and then he, too, was  gone.   "' '.'���������'-'��������� .- "������������������  The time that followed seemed ages  long to the bride. She strained her e.iw  to catch the strange, muffled sounds with  which thc tunnel was -filled; the- irriiiT  shouts of the rescuers; the cries and sobs  of wounded rind startled people; the.  horse of shifting rubbish and the hiss'of  steam., She wanted to be beside Alresford and help him; it was sickening work-  to sit there in the idle darkness.

She laid her  hand upon the door and then drew hack  again,''mindful of her husband's, words.  "If he went to India! What would  happen then? The future became suddenly dark to Lndy Alresford; her  thoughts were wordless, but their terror  was towards a numbness of depression  and a jealousy towards potential Mrs.  Aldingtons, who should, perhaps���������sorrre'  time, and because he had a wife who war-  no wife���������ensnare nn ' honest man and  make him no better than the rest. It  had been a vague possibility twenty  ninutes ago in the daylight; in the tun-  Jel it became a menace and a threat.  That was thc'-future.'The present contained the fact that the tangled noises  ahead were swelling, and that they were  .drumming danger into listening cars.  She opened the carriage door, catching  her breath at thc audacity; then gathr.  ered boldness with anxiety, and, seeing  a pin-point of light before, stumbled  across the sleepers till it grew again into  the guard's lantern.  A Knot of men wore busy upon a dark  mass of wreckage. The steam was blowing oif still, with a piercing hiss that  made other sounds difficult to hear; but  the chorus could bc distinguished, and  there were groans in it. The lantern, as  Lady Alresford saw when she came to  it, shone upon a rear-guard of outstretched figures, banked by the wreck  of the derailed carriages and ministered  to by a doctor, who was laboring among  them ns if he were in an hospital ward.  He was heedless of everything but his  patients, arrd when the woman appeared  at his elbow he jumped.  "No  place  for you." he shouted.  "Let���������me���������helpl" The bride raised hei  voice.  "Nurse, eh? Don't look like it. Well,  come on. First' woman I've seen not in  hysterics. Tear up this shirt for bandages."  She obeyed, and sho knelt on the  ground beside him wliile he bandaged  a bloody knee and held the limb for him.  She longed to go on where Alresford was,  but this duty had intruded to bar the  way, and its call was imperious.  "There; that's the last, they say," tiV  doctor said presently as he stood up  from a figure that "two of the rescuers  had laid down shortly after Lady Al-  resford's appearance. "'Now to iget 'em  Into 'fresh air. ... I say, ybu.re a  brick."  How like 1   Tlris was another man.  After all, the world must have no lack  of tlrem; else' how had these poor,  bruised, broken passengers been dragged  out of jeopardy? The steam was turned  off at last, and she could hear.  The volunteers clustered round th������  wounded; many, of them were injured  themselves by "their btrrrowings among  the debris. One of them was star!;  amongst the grave cases, whose removal  the  doctor  superintended   vigilantly.  "Give me that one, doctor," said Aires  ford's voice. "I cm let him have ar_  irm, and his understandings seem all  right." ��������� '  The bride shrank back into the shadow.  rhe bridegroom was within three feet ol  her, and���������and���������wns that blood upon hid  forehead? She stifled a cry.  '- "You've injured yourself," the sur  ;eon said. .  "Only a splinter. The last carriage  bristled with 'em.   Come on, my son."  The doctor stopped to look after the  nair as thev hobbled off.  'That's a" fine fellow." he stfid to Ladv  Mresford. "He climbed, on the second  'arriage where it trembled on the rool  if the first one, and hc handed the peo  ��������� ���������le out tt* the men down below.

Run after them with  'lliis'.-flask,., and .give .them both a nip  ivlien you got outside, please."  Thero was an abiding joy in the bride's  Iienrt as she sped past the train upon hei  mission. The bridegroom was safe; he  *vas also, as*her heart had cried to her  could not be otherwise, the, bravest o!  these brave men. She heard some others  talking of tbe incident as she hovered,  waiting to dart by a bandy chair that  they made for an injured ankle;  they spoke gravelv of the danger that  had been incurred. A ..first .volunteer,  it seemed, had climbed up and had been  injured by a fall. Alresford had beerr  the second. She went out into the daylight exultant, more thankful for "his  escape than she dared to think.  Local help hnd arrived; the patient?  were being stacked- into a trolley, and  Alresford was pilotine his charge acrost  the rails towards it. Someone else stepped  up, anticipating the doctor's orders,  and offered brandy. Alresford administered it to, his man, saw him, into tho  truck, took a drop himself, returned tho  flask, and in,so doing found his wife behind him.  "It's only a scratch," he said, reading  her eyes, and pulling down his shirt-culTs  in some embarrassment. Then his tone  changed and he sprang forward.  :_ "Good Heaven! Your, sleeve is soaked  with blood; the laces are crimson on  your dress. ..' . And I stayed up there  wilh them! ... Tell me where you  arc hurt."  "I have not been touched. "If was  only���������1 disobeyed your orders, and went  up "to help after all, and so, I suppose,  the stains came about. Oh. Dick, 1 am  so glad voir are safe!"  Lord Alresford looked at her- with  varying emotions plain to see in Iris  eager face. He glanced round, and fa������  that tire tunnel-folk were emerging and  that he was about to become ������������������Uns editor  of interest to those that:knew of his enterprise, and those tlrat were even now  hearing of it.        ��������� ���������  "It seared me," he said, "but I thunk  heaven you're all right. .

At the top Lprd Alresford helped hi*  wife over the railing, and the pauso wa*  filled by a ringing cheer from below,  which the doctor led boisterously.;������������������ As  an explanatory bellow left no doubt as  to its meaning, Alresford lifted his hat  and bowed gravely above the rail, and  then they moved away and were swallowed up in corn and poppies, and the  railway accident. became, suddenly, a  matter of history.  The field shimmered golden. Far away,  beyond it, behind the sparkling parkland, a "mansion turned a solemn grey  eye upon the landscape. The cirrus  clouds floated in thc summer sky, and a  lark soared from umiar their feet with  its song of  thanksgiving.  "There's the old place," Alresford said.  "Qjiecj-.we siiould-bc. sljot.here isn't it?  It Is���������home.'*  "Our home," said the bride.  The bridegroom stopped, and the red  ���������wept into his face again. He tried for  words, but there were none; and tho  bride, pitying his confusion, put a hand  into his as she faced hrm.  "Choose,-Dick," she said.

"You dear, brave,  manly thing, do you want to be told in  *o many words when a woman���������lovei  you?"  There was a long 3ilence, and the discreet lark sang itself away out of sight.  Then as tHiey turned again homewards',  hand in hand, the bride gave a littlo  wondering laugh that yet had a note of  awed amazement in it.  "Dick!" she said.

Curious Bits of News.  .Paper clothes are the latest, novelty,  according to the "World's Paper Trade  Review." Tliis journal tells us that n  Berlin - tailoring-house is now offering  complete paper suite for $2.50. The prospectus gives full instructions for measuring oneself, and the firm also advertises  in foreign journals, evidently expecting  to do an export business. The material  is woven and pressed, of a dull cream  color, and apparently not veiy light.  Boston has recently added an automobile policeman to its police department.  He is expected to arrest automobilists  who run their cars too fast. Every large  city has had bicycle policemen for a, long  time,, to keep "the wheelmen in order,  and officers on horseback are common in  the parks and public drives where men  are tempted to speed their horses. The  next thing to come will be flying-machine  policemen, to keep the peoplo sailing in  tho nir from violating the speed ordinances.   London "Truth."  Of .Leo's freedom from carnal frailties  1 have spoken. No scandal ever tarnished his life. But I am not sure that  there were times when he would not  have gladly brought a woman into, his  life. He undoubtedly came under the  spell of Mme. Rattarrxl'n grace "and beauty. She had the palace of her grandfather, Lueden Bonaparte, at Vlterlro,  which Leo often visited, and received bim  there in her delicious manner. Mme.  Rattazzi would be tres grande dame, and  blended as hostess of the Bishop of Fer-  upia that character with that of an  amiable coquette. But the grand souvenir of the late Pope's life was of Judith, the French actress. He saw her in  Paris in 1840; thought she would be an  ideail model for a Notre Dame dc Car-  tnel, and indirectly- got Anthoine, a Belgian painter, to do a portrait of her in  that character. Whon first asked to sit,  she objected, saying, "You know I am a  Jewess." Tliis did not matter. Were  not the Virgin Jlary and the Apostles  Jewish also? And so sho posed. In liin  last illness Leo ordered the painting of  Notre Dame de Carmel to bo tnk-rm from  his oratory and hung before his bed. Tie  hoped t.o die on her festn���������July 1(1.

Th.-) niei-il  expression and varied actions which .t.-  livened the process ,prrte rfconeiled .no  to the opinion of the pnot wlr-i \vi-h"-,i  the woman hu loved ivott'd always dine  alone.  ���������Some of the prettiest women look u*_*!y  while eating. n.->. per contra, some of tii*'  ugliest look quite, charming. Now as all  sensible (and n lew silly) women desire  to look charming on all occasions, it  would bc as well if they remembered  that in public resorts tbey themselves  attract quite as much notice as their  gowns and jewels.  Yet there aro women who lean their  elbows on the table and talk across it  to an opposite neighbor, taking sips of  wine, or stiifling bread into their mouths  nt intervals. There are others who absolutely throw fragments of their dinner  rolls into their mouth as if they were  enjoying a game of cup and ball! There  is the W0111...1 who does not eat her roi!  at nil, but has an irritating knack ol  crumbling it up into a heap of frauments,  making an untidy and most unpretitr-  csqrre Jitter beside her plate. Possibly  not one of the women thinks, of tire  cll'eet of her methods on an onlooker.  Not one imagines she is an object oll'en-  sive and offending against a standard or  good manners.  There nre various methods of taking  soup, though the wise woman is the one  who does not take it at all. It is a very-  bad foundation for a series of courses  And not only'calculated to render diges  tion more difficult, but to a^Iord quite  unbecoming importance to a certain feature of the face.  I have seen delicate cheeks flush to  rustic ruddiness; noses���������Grecian, tip-  tilted, or otherwise admirable in shap'  and contour���������absolutely .swell and red  den beneath the influence of consomme  asperges or potage tortue. The difficulty  of eating (or sipping) soup becomingly  is drawback sufficient without the risl-  of unbecoming consequences.- Some wo  men take it iii tiny sips, .serme gulp it.  some ladle it into their, "mouths; sonu  seem bent on "taking in" the spoon f������  well as its contents, others make the pro  cess audible. Some gurgle it dbwn_ ir  conversational interludes, aeconrpanied  by the cup and ball trickT have alrend;  mentioned. But rarely have I seen on-  sip, drink or partake of it in a grace  fui manner.  Thc way women ply knife and fork i  also an interesting study. I have see-  them cut up what is on their plate int*  a little heap, lay down the knife, an  proceed to convey the food to its nn  tural receptacle by the fork! I Irav  seen others throw "in huge mouthful* i  a time and spoil the contour of th  cheek, the expression of the mouth, nn  even the delicacy of the throat by eni'  latirrg the methods of the boa-constri.  tor.  There is likewise the "snapper" e  food, the slow- masticator, and th  "bolter." Thc first opens her mouth a*  sort of .trap. It open= and shuts like  thing on springs.-��������� Hey. piesto! Th  trick is done. The slow process is .t  annoying one to watch, though doubtlc;-  beneficial ,to the digestion of the o>  ���������lonent. Let her, however, rehearse tl*  irocess before n looking-glass .at hon*  ere she treats the public to a facial p.i-  tomime.  'ilie "bolter," in contradistinction !
