Nelson    Liberal - Conservative  Association     On     Record.���������  Willing- to Let the Dead Past  Bury Its Dead  The following resolution was unanimously passed at a meeting of the  executive council of tho Nelson Liberal-Conservative Association Tuesday  afternoon, says the Nelson Daily  News:  1. That this Association did at lire  last Provincial election faithfully  support and work for the success of  tho Liberal-Conservative Government;  2. That in consequence of what was  considered by tho constituency as a  whole the unfair treatment of the  member for Nelson by tlie Lieutenant-  Governor and the Premier in connection with it Cabinet appointment, this  Association did, on November 21st.  190:i, refuse to support a resolution of  confidence in tlie Government, the  reason being its desire to show its  disapproval of the action of the leader  of the Government in that one particular, but without any intention to  place itself in avowed opposition to  tho Government. Further the motion  referred to was introduced against the  advice of the President as being  inopportune whilst public feeling was  excited at the incident, and in addition the introducer of the motion had  not himself been a supporter of the  party and did not Work or vote to  place the Government iu power.  3. This executive declares that, the  Association is in all party matters a  loyal supporter of the purty and government, both in Provincial and Dominion politics,, notwithstanding any  statements to the contrary.

Prominent Calgary Lawyer is  Arrested in Connection7 with  the Wilcox Mail cRobbery  Case.  Calgary, April 11.���������John Arthur  Bangs, of the firm of Bangs & .Tones,  one of the prominent lawyers of this  city, was placed under arrest on Saturday on a charge of complicity in concealing tho money stolen some time  ago from His Majesty's mails and for  tlie robbery of winch mail clerk Wilcox is now on trial.  Bangs is counsel for Wilcox, and the  authorities suspect him of having the  iiiissing.inoriey^iiuhis.possession.^Some-  tirrro ago liis house was searched witli  a view, it is understood, of securing  evidence, in support ol" this.  The arrest has created a great sensation hero, where Hangs has lived for  the past eighteen years, and where lie  has been in practice as a barrister and  solicitor for very nearly tlrat time.  That Hangs is guilty of the charge is  discredited by the citizens, with whom  his reputation is au excellent one, and  it is not believed that any positive  grounds fen- the action of the police  have been obtained.  Thu arrest was' mado by Colonel  Sanders, superintendent nf the Northwest Mounted Police, on instruction's  received by wire from Inspector* Chamberlain from Gleichen.  .Hangs was admitted to hriil on $11).-  000 security being put up, of which  .$5000 was furnished by himself and the  reni.iindor by two sureties, who gave  $2,500 each.  LATER.  The arrest of ,T. A. Bangs, H. F.  Boyce and T. B. Bohan is almost as  much of a mystery here, as at the time  thoy wore arrested and but little of  the evidence that will he offered at  the preliminary trial has boen made  public or is evon known yet to the  crown authorities hero. Pinkerton  detectives have been working at the  case. Thoy have engineered the  arrests and have worked up all the  evidence in connection with it. The  story, as far as can he learned here, is  that the Pinkerton agency in Seattle  had beerr informed that some of the  Bank of Hamilton bills were being  exchanged in bulk for some other bills  of another hank in tliat city. They  discovered the agents who were handling the hills, shadowed them irr  Seattle and followed them back. The  agents purchased tickets to Gleichen.  B. P. Boyce was placed under arrest |  at Gleichen after returning from the  west. He was in the act of receiving  ii package of money from the express  company when arrested, |  Mr. Ogle and Socialism.  Editor IIkkald :  Sill.���������Last .Monday night, April 11,  Mr. Ogle mado an attack on Socialism,  under cover of the .Methodist church.  Any thinking man present would admit the truth of many of Mr. Ogle's  .statements, but as an attack on the  stronghold of Socialism it was an utter  failure. The -charges brought were  against the stand of .certain Socialists  on the'-'religious (jucstion. Socialism  itself was untouched. Indeed Mr.  Ogle failed to answer a very pertinent  question put to ' hiin by ill'. Cough.  Ono would think that tho gentleman  would at least have understood what  Socialism was before leading an attack  against it. From Mr. Ogle's remarks  I would take it? that he lias never been  a Socialist. True, he may have been  in tlio party but by ignorance as he  himself said. Now, Mr. Editor, I am  a Socialist, I have beerr a 'member of  the   Revelstoke   Socialist   Local   and j  Big Find at Poplar,  Incoming passengers from Poplar  creek arriving on the steamer Kokanee  yesterday reported the recent finding  of several large nuggets of pure gold  in a" pocket lincoveren in the Lucky  Jack groupe.  Some of the nuggets contained two  hundred dollars worth of the precious  metal each.  In the aggregate the value of the.  packet h said to exceed $1,000.���������Nelson News.  Diocese of Kootenay.  The executive committee-of - the Anglican diocese of Kootenay held a  session in Nelson last week. His Lordship Bishop Dart of New Westminster  presiding.  Two mission posts .were organized  and arrangements made for sustaining  them.    One will.consist of Arrowhead,  though I have quil that"organization I Comaplix and Nakusp, and the other  am still as good a  Socialist lis ever. }of_Ci-eston.nnd points along the Crow's  It is true that'many of the prominent  members of the ��������� party in B. C. are  practically atheists, but the churches,  are to blame for that. Why did they  irot take rrp the good work? 'Because  the churches have not grasped or even  realised the true problems of human  life. Vague, shadowy theories, instead of hard practical facts. When  Christ taught the multitude he also  remembered and had compassion on  their physical wants and so provided  tho loaves and the fishes. I tell you,  Mr. Editor, the physical hardships oif  life, the empty stomachs, the mental  distress through being unable to provide for loved ones, the injustice of  our present social system damns more  souls than all the ignorance and lack  of Christian doctrine. What have the  churches' doire to ease distressed humanity, have they lifted any of the  load? No. they don't profess to, but  teach humility, patience and servility.  If I have my hand in the fire and am  perfectly free to withdraw it but will  rrot, do I rrot deserve lo burn. The  laboring man is in that position.  Why should he bear ' that which he  canJ,hrow olV. "What matters it to  liimTfnrfiiTiin^Sth'Bi^^  self that raises his load and makes him  free. Let us look at the matter  sipiarely and honestly. The church  offers charity but leaves the man a  slave. Socialists, even though they be  atheists are pointing the way to freedom. Thc churches are blind or they  would see that the present social system i.s the greatest obstacle to Christianity. And charity, what do we want  with the beggarly pittance you call  charity, we want justice. Charity  used to mean love but does so no  longer. Mr. Ogle told us that he  studied character, better be a Jittle  broader and study humanity before be  comes before the public to run down  and try to overthrow that which is  striving for the regenei-ation of mankind. Socialism is in ita infancy. I  admit its imperfections and would not  for a moment think of advancing the  .system of Socialism as being perfect,  but it is a step in the right direction  and with the increase of education we  may hope to see its truths adopted and  its "faults remedied. He is the true  man who will lead us on to better  things, any craven can pull down  better work than he can build up. The  present system of capitalism which is  fostered by most churches is leading  us to wreck and disaster, as any man  can see for himself if his mind is broad  enough and his senses keen enough to  follow the run of events. I will not  tresspass more on your kindness for  the present but may have something  to say on the subject later on if Mr.  Ogle"persists in tho campaign he has  now entered on.  I am, etc..  J.

The diocesan synod will meet this  year at Kevelstoke on Wednesday,  June Sth, and the executive committee  will reconvene in Nelson again on  May ISth to prepare a program for the  meeting of synod.  The Tie-Up  The C.P.R. are having a strenuous  time bn this division 'with snowslides  arrd washouts. The hot weather of  the past week has started the snow-  down the hills with fatal results to the  train service. The officials here are  working night and daj- with crews to  clear the track, but no sooner has  one of the obstacles removed when it  is reported that a slide has come down  at another point on the road. The  lost through train from the east came  in on Saturday night last and up to  the present there is no definite news  as to when the main line will he open.  The passengers east and west are now  transferred over the Crow's Nest Pass.  ���������Sprint; conies slowly, but surely will  its beauties and its joys develop. Not  less surely do the suits at Cresstnan's  Tailoring Establishment show the perfection of art and the beauties of  artistic skill. You get the best at  Cressinan's.  "Anglo-French   Colonial  Treaty.  The Associated Press learned on  Monday through private advices from  London that the Anglo-French colonial treaty, including the agreements  relative to Morocco, Egypt and Newfoundland, has been signed. The main  points of the colonial treaty are as  follows:  France surrenders her sovereignty  over the Newfoundland shore ana receives a two-fold indemnity:  First, for French individuals giving  up property along the surrendered  shore, and.  Second, for the French government's  relinquishment of its sovereignty.  The amount of the indemnity to ba  paid by Great Britain to be decided by  f he Hague arbitration tribunal.  Morocco figures largely in the treaty.  It safeguards Great Britain's commer- -  cial rights and insures no fortification  of the'Moroccou coast opposite Gibral- '  tar.  The Egyptian agreement does not  effect Great Britain's protectorate over  Egypt, brrtis said to be confined to the  administration of the Egyptian debt.  Great Britain having a larger latitude  in disposing of the surplus without the  concurrence of France.  France gets improved facilities in  reaching Lake Tehad and other points  in French Central Africa. This concession, it has been asserted in thedes-  patches, is a partial return for the  return of French sovereignty over the  Newfoundland shore.  Finally, the treaty is said to contain  a clause providing for equality of tariff ,*  duties on goods entering Morocco and '-  Egypt for a period of thirty years, this -  clause having the effect of establishing^'  the open door in Morocco  and Egypt. .-.

It was useless to try to dissuade her;  although still very weak and hysterical,  the poor young woman insisted on driving to the post-office and. seuding the  message herself. I accompanied her,  and with some difficulty prevented lier  from wiring off a volume of nonsense at  the rate of seven and six-pence a word,  that would have swamped iny dividends  for.the next half year; for she had forgotten her purse, and, as I had only' a  couple of sovereigns in mine, she had to  be content with the following baid coui-  , mimical ion���������  ��������� "All right, dear love.

' Ou our return home we found Janet,  quite recovered from the shock,'waiting?  for ns in her bedroom, her ruby velvet  gown spread out ou her bed,7 her, case of  diamonds lying unopened on her dressing-table.

She  gave   iu, ami  Hetty aud  , Trot went off to help her to dress. * I  i Very pretty she looked in her flowing  wedding-gown, but her face lacked its  usual animation; and 'there were dark  lines still under her eyes. However, her <  mother-in-law made up in imposing gor-  geoueness for the sobriety of her t&iue.  A little scream of astonishment, not uu-  . mixed with reprobatiou, greeted Janet's  appearance in the drawing-room, for wo  bad not seen the new style of bodice before, and the almost entire absence of'  sleeve was at first a little trying to the  ���������craggy shoulders and neck on which  the diamonds glittered so magnificently.

I "They aro perfect���������dazzling!" Emmeline murmured.: "I can't help admiring  theni, though you know, dear, jewelry is  a thing I dou't care for in tlie least. "  Ae I felt little disposed for sleep and  ���������bad an interesting book,-I sent the servants to bed and waited up for the return of Janet and her daughter-in-law.  They arrived at about midnight, both  veVy pleased with tlieir evening's entertainment. Enunelino had .evidently  quite got ��������� ver tho afternoon's shock, aud  was her bright..'-.lively.-self again, and  Janet was delighted with the effect;  their joint appearance had made upon  the'company and was graciously garrulous thereon. When Emmy and I got  her to bed at last, we folded ' up her  precious gowri, wrapping the scanty  bodice in tit-sue paper, according to directions, and went down to deposit tlio  diamonds as usuai in the old plate-chest,  concealed under a sly boarding iu the  but tor's pantry. Thou we brought Janet  back the massive key, which she placed  under.her pillowy'clocing her oyes with  a sigh Of sleepy couteut.  | The night was go hot and clone that,  when I got to boil, I was about as wakeful as I had been all thu evening. Having finished my gtovy, I hnd no excuso  for lighting the candle, ho I remained  tossing f:*'>m side to side, watching for  the first ������������������freak of dawn, and fretting at  the ultor stilli.ess of the house. But  presently, when starting out of a "semi-  doze, tin's cause of grievance was , removed, for I heard a loud croak in tha  passage, follo"*ed bv the sound of heavy  footsteps that stopped right, nt my dc r.  The perspiration rolled off my fnee, mil  I jumped out of bed and turned uie key  tliurply in the lock.  "Open, Netty���������open, please!" Jsnet's  voice called to ma in a frightened wl.L-  per.

"Will���������will you peep over the baluslera  with mo, Nutty? We can scream . lo  rouse the Hervaiits if we see���������hear anything, and bolt back!"  Hand in hand we stole along to tho  balusters, and there sure enough we saw  a faint streak of liglrt through the hulf-  closed baize door.that led to the kitcliea  Stairway.  "Help! Thieves!

"Emmy, Emmy." we cried, "what ia  it?    What are you doing?"  "Then���������then you, too, heard something ?"aho asked, tottering towards Ud.  "It���������it wns not rill my imagination ?"

Then yorr screamed.  Ah, they have heard at last; they're all  up now, thank goodness!"  . Indeed, half-clad ten.fied figures began  to gather round us from ull corners.  Emmy's story was to1' over again ; then,  after listening  patiently  for aliout tivo  minutes in tense - si'euce and hearing  nothing more alarming than the voice  of tlie cat in tlie lower regions, we  agreed to. descend en masse and ascertain  if tliere was any cause for our disturbance.   -  Janet, guarded by Trot and her heroin  daughter-in-law, returned to her room  for the keys of her casket and of tlia  plate-chest; aud we sallied forth, to find  nfter a minute investigation that there  was not really auy ground for our  alarm. All the windows were intact,  tlie out-doors fast, and the precious diamonds sparkling on their faded satin  bed, not a stone missing.  Emmeline looked rather foolish and  began humbly to apologize for ner impulsive conduct; and, as daylight ha.I  broken distinctly, we all dispersed wiih  some confidence to dress for an early  breakfast; feeling that it would be hopeless to woo sleep again after such exo foment.  .  "Still I must have heard something; I  am sure I did hear a crash. I'couldn't  have dreamed.it, you know," Emirreline  muttered, peering rigiit and left uith a  discomfited frown. i  When we were half way up the kitchen  stairs Irer voice recalled us eagerly. We  found her in the scullery, triumphantly  pointing to a mass of broken crockery  lying on the ground iii front of au old  dresser.  "There," she exclaimed���������"I am vindicated! You muse lay the blame upon  puss, not me. Behold tho caus>e of tiio  whole disturbance!"  We all pronounced ourselves perfectly  convinced, except Janet, who declared  at breakfast thai, liar nervous system w:i3  thoroughly unhinged, and that nothing  would induce her to wear her diamonds  at_lii_e_regimenta 1 dunee,  for  which ..wa  bad received invitations thut moriiiug.  1 Chapter V,  After she had been with us two mon ths  the family verdict was that we did nodi Ke  Phil's wife. But why, we did notkuo > ;  what had tended to remove our first favorable impression, not oue of us cntilil  satisfactorily state, though we sat in conclave over the question often eiiougu,  goodness knows.  However, Janet's affection and delight  in the girl increased day by day ; the refrain of her attractions, now and then  ruiied by slightly disparaging comparisons at our Trot's expense, was continuously kept up. And we had to agivo  that tliere was no questioning the you"g  wife's deep love for aid entire trust in  her unworthy husband. The tremulous  anxiety and delight she had shown over  his letters during the first week, which [  Ihought rather overdone and afi'eoted .-it  the moment, remained just as marked as  time went by.  '������������������'On mail mornings she iyas rpally liko  O.Egiire.on wire.-;, in and outofthe room,  U;> und dowu the stairs twenty times in  half an hour, and one <iay 1 saw her st-irS  impulsively from her favorite sent at iho  lobby window ami, before I could attempt  n remonstrance, dart dowu stairs and cru.-s  ths sodden liiwu, iu nn almost blindin-  torrent of raiu, the moment the postman  appeared at the loilg* gale. As well as  I oau remember, it m s on the evening  of thia very day that a circumstance occurred which disturbed aud excited us  all Tory unpleasantly, arid Which proven,  alas, bow unerring wm our Dottj'u  judgment!  Tho raiu continued so deprrssingty,  and it got so chilly to������ ants evening, thut  Janet suggested a fire in the drawing-  room, which suggestion we all supported  briskly; and, two girl friui.us of Trot's  dropping in to cousult her about sonic  ba&uir work thuy had jointly under-  talj&u^w* jjMM-.itai"','!'

I looked up and saw that it was a purso  ���������the purse that Trot had made as a patting gift for her lover before he started  for Australia, and tlrnt Iro had delared to  lier should never leave the pocket nearest to his heart until he could bring it  baok filled with some of the gold that  was to purchase him the happiness of his  life. I stared at it, doubting the evidence of my own eyes. I leaned forward, sharply meeting the heads of t������ o  of my sisters advanced for the samo  purpose, and examining the center,  where his initials I knew had beeu  woven. They were therel It was tho  identical purse! Draw frig hastily back,  I caught a glimpse of Florry Bertram's  startled face. I saw that she realized  tlie wantonness of the outrage Eustace  Brownrigg's son had been guilty of.  After a second or two I glanced toward  the .tea-table - where. Trot sat. I saw a  little crimson face bent low over its  work; I saw two tears drop heavily, and  I felt that, had I met my nephew at that  moment, I should have kill'., him.  Presently Florry Bertram's voico, high  aud flurried, readied me indistinctly.  "Thank you���������er���������Mrs. Brownrigg; it's  a very pretty -purse indeed, but it's not  the purse I saw before; the���������the silk is  quite a. different shade, and the pattern  of the bead embroidery is quite different,  too. At the first glance, I thought it  looked rather like������������������"  "Well, it might be the same, you  know," Emmeline answered carelessly,  tossing it up like a ball, "for it was my  husband who gave it to me, and I know  it was worked for him by some young  lady or otiier, I know it���������ha, ha!���������the  moment I spied it thrust away in a dim  corner of his wardro'ie, aud then when  be denied tho ciiarg'i���������at least, denied  that he set the least i-jdue oh it, with two  or three naughty, naughty words���������all  my doubts were set at rest, and I ordered  hi in to hand it over to me at once,  which he did without the slightest demur. Oli, fickle: is the heart of man���������  isn't it, Miss Bertram ?"  | I do not know how much longer we  eat there, or what any oue else said; but  after a time I became conscious of the  fact that our visitors were taking their  leave. I watched Trot help them to fasten up their waterproof cloaks, exchange  ' a merry jest, then stand witli dazed  flushed face looking after them as they  hurried down the avenue, until Emmeline, absently twisting tlio hateful purso  through lier fingers, came up and slipped  her arm round her-waist.! Then for the  first time I saw her release herself with  a shrinking movement and run rather  quickly up the stairs, humming a tuuo  as she went. i  i I followed her with Peggy, and outsido  her room, in a loud unconcerned voice,  made some inquiry about the dress sha  was to wear at the military dance tho  next night; and, without waiting for her  answer, entered the room. I  I She had broken down at hist, our  bright, bravelittle maid! 'Wefound her,  Iher face buried in her pillow, crying as  jif her heart would burst, sobbing out in  'wild incoherent words the long restrained torrent of her wrath and pain.  I "I know���������I know!" she oried, strrig-  (gling to release herself from our arms,  moving her head from side to side iu  'feverish avoidance of our eager, whisper-  ling lip3. "Oh, I know all that; you  .have told me that before.

"You  who liave been so brave, so just���������you  'who have taught us so noble a lesson,  don't let your wrongs blind your eyes  now. She is not to blame; 'she knows  nothing; slie believes in liim as you���������wo  all did orrce; she knows nothing "    j  "She knows everything���������everything,  I tell youi" the girl answered, Bturling  to her feet with clenched hands. "And  it is tlie business, the pleasure of her day.  to wound, to shame.-to���������to insult nie���������  me, whom she 1ms so terribly and knowingly���������knowingly, I repeat���������wronged,  and yet who received her with a kiss, who  meant aud tried to treat her���������to like her  ���������as a oister, who��������� ��������� ". j  i "You have no proo'ef what you say,'  Trot, not the slightest! You will besony  for having so misjudged her. Oh, think  of what you are saying! How could sho  know after the scene of this afternoon;  what proof enn you have?" ���������  , "I have proof, I tell you; I have proof!  From almost the first day I suspected  her, and then���������-then I became ashamed  of my suspicions; I struggled against  them���������struggled bard not to let you or  her know, what I felt..;I told myself  twenty times a day that it was all jealousy���������nothing but jealousy and euvy and  bitterness. I tried to see her as you all  law her���������a gentle/winning, innocent,  and affectionate girl. But I couldn't���������I  couldn't. To me she was but a coarse,  affected, intriguing woman. Her beauty  I could see, but that was nil, nothing elso.  I could not see that she was a gentlewoman, ever, when you all admitted her  ease of manner, her tact, her gracefulness. I could net see ".hat she was innocent and winning. I fought hard���������oh,  aunt Peggy, aunt Netty, you are wit-  bosses that I fought hard to over-coma  Xny oouviotlon���������but, I tell you, it was of  no uso; it gathered strength everyday,  nnd when she saw that I disliked her then  ���������then she did not spnro me, I can tell  you���������oh, she did not spare������������������"  "What!" I burst in, thoroughly  etartled. "Do you mean to say that you  Bpoko out, Trot���������that she admitted she  wns aware of her husbaud's conduct to  you?"  "No���������oh. no! There wns no qunrrel,  uo admissions; why, that would havo  robbed the situation of its point���������its  piquancy. No, no"���������with a choking  laugh���������"she stubbed me, her arm round  my waist, with ber hand clnsping mine,  with words of nfTucIion nnd endenrmcut  on lier false, cruel lips."  "My poor child���������my poor child!" interrupted Peggy, crying weakly. "What  can have put such terrible thoughts inro  your head? Do you think that wc, who  love you, should not huve seen it if such  were the case?"  "You saw it now and then, aunt  Peggy, only you did not understand.  But it was not often before you; it. was  more beforo other people���������people who  knew how I had onco loved Ph���������lier husband. It was scenes���������incidents like the  one she planned this afternoon for Florry's benefit���������Florry,- who was to have  been my bridesmaid, to whom I told���������  told everything, to whom I���������I often  showed his letters even. "  "Trot," I said vehemently, snatching  her bands from her face, "I can not  suffer you to talk like this unless you  give me some reliable proofs of these  accusations, i Are you aware that you  are showing up this poor girl in the ligUt  of a fiend���������simply a fiend?"  "Proofs���������proofs," she muttered wearily. "I tell you I hare.a thousand proofs,  ouly you wouldn't see them-���������understand  them! I tell you I know I am speaking  the truth���������-I know it���������I know it���������there!  Oh, leave me alone, then! Don't believe  me if you don't liko! Believe tliat I am  blinded with bitterness and jealousy, as  at first I tried to convince myself. Perhaps you are right, after all; perhaps I'm  half off my head and don't know what  I'm saying. Dunr��������� dear aunties, forget  it all���������forget it! Don't mind what I said ;  don't tell the others!"  "Trot, love," Peggy whispered, bonding over lier, "would you like me to  take you away to the seaside for a little  while? You havehad no change, at all  this summer, remember; and I think a  month at Brighton* or Southsen-���������-"  "Yes, yes���������I think I should like that,  dear; but not.until after the dance tomorrow. I���������I don't wan t her to kuow  that she has driven me from my dear  home���������she       '".  As we paused at the door, T heard her  mutter, through a fresh storm of teal's���������  "Oh,-why did I break down? My  dear, dear old'aunties, how they will fret  and worry over this! Oh, what a miserable selfish creature I am!"  It was a terrible state of things, we nil  'agreed, as we sat over the embers of the  drawing-room firo, discussing witii soro  and heavy hearts tha unexpected outbreak of the storm that Dotty's sagacious  eyes had detected in the sky,so. long ago.  What could be done? After many  suggestions and much discussion, we had  to confess that, for the present at least,  there was nothing to be done but to take  the poor child from Fdrnbaok as quickly  as possible, and then, with every available means in our power, witli judicious  argument and persuasion, remove by degrees her groundless and cruel misconceptions, show her forcibly and clearly  how grievously she wronged her defenceless '.'guest by scroll wild and completely unproveii accusations; for, notwithstanding our vague dislike of poor  Emmeline, not one of us for a moment  believed tliere was even a shadow of  truth in them, or that tlie girl had-received the slightest hint, since her arrival among us, of her, husband's engagement to his old playmate. Indeed,  we had taken particular care to withhold  sucli knowledge from her, foreseeing that  it might niaije the Intercourse between  the girls strained and unpleasant, and  had warned our inti mate friends und old  servants, who were very garrulously inclined, to keep siienfc orr the matter. Wo  knew at least that tho latter had strictly  respected our wishes.  Before 'separating,Peggy wrote to. a  ''friendat'Brightdn^asking-iier^to: engager  lodgings for her at onco; but the next  morning after breakfast Trot informed  us that she could uot leave homo until  the end of the. week on account of llio  wedding of Grace Harrington, whoso  chief bridesmaid she had promised to be.  The day passed by uneventfully enough.  I took Trot but for a long morning's shopping, and Janet kept her daughter-in-law  by lier side all day, malting some minute  alteration in her costume for the ball that  night, and discussing with her the  mighty question whether sho would havo  the courage to take her diamonds agniu  out of the bank. ^  Vanity carried the point, as I had  tno'.vn it would. The. regiment had a  new colonel; tbo new colonel had, rumor  said, a "dressy wife," aud this lady had  never seen the famous Brownrigg dowry.  Janet felt that it was her duty to drizzle,  to outdo lier at all risks.  I So at five o'clock, an hour Inter than  usual, the fly arrived to fetch the diamonds from the bank, and at about  nine a brilliant quartette started from  our door���������Dotty, bur youngest,-who'still  enjoyed a quadrille or lively set of lancers witli oue of the partnors of our  youth���������now, alas, mostly bald-headed  fathers of families or gouty old bachelors  ���������chaperoning Trot, who looked very  bright and pretty iu pale blue gauze with  a silver arrow in her hair; Janet, with  the gait of a Cleopatra and about a quarter of an inch less tucker than she had  woru at Lord Somertown's, In charge of  her daughter-in-law, who again wore her  bridal dress.  Hetty and Iwr.lteo' Tip for them. IM-  ways had a weakness for waiting up for  people, and have often thou lit, if fruo  had given me a convivial husband, what  a terror I should have been to him.  At abont three o'clock tlrey returned,  looking little the worse for their revel  and eviderrlly iir the best of spirits.  "It was a lovely dance, aunt Netty,"  Emmeline nnnnnuiw?. dropping into  au  wisy chair; "and tha officers wero quiln  too charming! Ono of thoin reminded  tne awfully of my dear boy���������that tall  young fellow you sat so mii-jh with on  the top of the stairs. Jliss Trot Oh, I  Bnw you, my dear, though perhaps your  chaperon didn't���������hn, ha! He reminded  you of Phil now, didn't he���������didn't ho?"  "Then you enjoyed the dance too,  Trot? You had plonty of purtuors?" I  asked eagerly, wheeling round.  "Oh, plenty! Thoro nre three now  men in the regiment, one of lhem qtiitu  an Apollo, and he reverses like���������like an  angelt But oh, Netty, anything to cquul  the conduct of my chaperon  Chaperon, Indeed! Three dancos running I  caught her In tho conservatory, hid in  a forest���������a jungle of shrubs and plants,  alone with a wicked Colonel���������a Colonel  Roper-Coote!"  "Colonel Roper-Coote!" I interrupt ed  eagerly. "Doyou mean of thoSixteeiith,  Trot���������Dotty ? Oh, fancy his being back  here again!"  "He has left tho army nnd settled down  here altogether. Netty," Trot answered,  with a significant nod. "And his wife is  dead���������I believe two of his wives are dead  ���������-and he has a dozen motherless childivu  on hie hands; und���������and���������isn't it sad,  Netty���������just too awfully sad? I caught  him telling Dot all about it, you know.  He had a pocket-handkerchief in his  hand, and she had one in her hand, too,  and looked so sympathetic! There's  nothing so nice and soothing as sympathy, is there, Dotty?"  Poor little Freddy Roper! I rcmemhgt  him five-and-tweuty years before, jusl  after he had joined the army���������an awkward, stammering, susceptible youth  whom we all made game-of. A few  weeks after introduction lie had flung  himself at Janet's feet, and of course had  beeu callously spumed by that young  lady, then in the zenith of her beauty.  After that ho had turned to Dotty, n  blooming lively girl just stepping out of  the uchoolroom; but Dotty would not  have anything to say to him either, and  he had passed out of our paths apparently  broken-hearted.  "Two wives, you say���������lie has had  two  wives���������little Freddy?"  I.'repeated, with  an iucredulous laugh.  . "And buried them���������I distinctly stated  they were both buried, Netl"  I turned to Dotty, and saw tliat sho  was���������what?���������actually blushing!  "Dotty, you old-������������������" I began teasingly,  when a particularly vicious look in Janet's eyes suddenly stopped me, arid then  clever little Mrs. Phil came to tlie rescue.  "Yes, it was a lovely ball, deal's, and  both Trot and I looked uncommonly  well���������I know we did; but, all the: same,  we weren't the belles of the room by: any  ineano!"  "No? Who were they, then, Emmeline?"    .  '"My mother-in-law was ono. No,  madam, I am not joking! No end of my  ' partners were talking about you and saying that you didn't look thirty; and one  of the new subalterns, a Mr. .Stau���������Stall  something or other, I forget tiio name���������  asked me if you weren't the Italian princess who was expected at Lord Somertown's last week. Aud they say sho i'1  a beautiful young womau, I know!" ',  "Fine feathers���������clearly a case of lino  feathers, Ernl" Jauet simpered, with a  glance at the mirror. "Certainly this is  the, most becoming dress I've liad for  years."  "Well, have you settled whero you  are going to lodge your cliief feathers for  the night. Janet?" asked Hetty, yawning. "For it's high time wo were think'  iug of bed, you kirow. "  "Oh, yes, it's all seltleuT'she answered  briskly. "William is going to sleep upstairs in the spare room, aud I am keeping tlie diamonds myself. Em is sharing my bed, nnd promises to sustain my  courage and wake up at the lightest  sound. I have the greatest confidence  in the dear child since her devoted in-  ttrepidity at the last alarm."  ' "Bertie, Manners was there; he lia9  immensely improved. She was with  him half the highfc," Dot whispeiuU to  Wo as we said "Good   night."  Clinpter  VI.  The night, or rather the remainder of  the morning, passed by uneventfully,  without auy false or real alarm of burglars.   We all met at a latajjieakfast, except  Janet, who dozed on far iuto the afternoon and awoke very cross, complaining  of a biliorrs headache.  I When tho fly came at about twelve to  take the diamonds to their stronghold, I  .offered to undertake the responsibility of  their escort as I had more shopping to  get tlirough, and, for the purpose of keep-  Jug Emmeline out of Trot's way, I asked  tier to accompany me. She readily consented, and, when we had safely disposed  of our precious parcel, we separated foro  little time, she to send ou a box of roses  to an invalid lady witli whom she had  made friends when coming from Australia, I to visit my bootmaker. ;  i I had left her only a few seconds when  I remembered that I wanted her to do a  commission for mo at the station, to  which tho postoffice was attached. So  I ran after her into the office, and, not  finding Irer there, . enterod the larger  building, which was in a state of bustle  consequent on the departure of our one  afternoon., train. The platform was  crowded, but, after a moment, I quickly  detected Emrneli"e's bright yellow hair  and red hat. Pushing forward, I tapped  her smartly; or, tho shoulder. Slur  turned with a little, scream, her faco  flushing suddenly.  ,"0h, aunt Netty, what's tlio matter?  You frightened me so!    What is it?"  "Only a message I fcrgot. I'm sorry  I frightened you, Em my I I want you,  -when the train goes, to see James Grant,  the porter with the crooked eye, aud  tell him that the parcel I gave liim to  send on Friday last by tlie3.45 to���������to *  "Oh, auntie," she interrupted, moving  Impetuously to'-< ard the train, "isn't it  too bad about m}' vose3?

Run along the line of can ia^e.i  Until I see a face I can trust, and ask (be  owner to post the parcel at the first office  they come to iu Londou! She'd get them  to-night tb'it way."  "Come along," I said; "it's not a had  Idea."  It was rather an embarras de riV/iMSM,  for, in the hustle nf ,ie| ;u line uud uf bidding "Good byes," nearly every enrriago  door was crowded with rather mist-  worthy countenances, I thought. But  Emmy seemed somewhat (lurried and  undecided, and the "five minutes'bell"  had rung some time aiuce.  "Look, Emmy, look!" I whispered,  clutching her elbow. "What do you  think of that sweet-looking young widow with the little boy at the second-  class window? There's uo one talking to  ber. *  "Netty," sho whispered with a very  roguish smile, "I think, dear, considering that I hadn't time to���������to stamp tlio  box, you know, it would be better, surer  to give it to a gentleman."  "You little diplomatist!"  "A gentleman, young and first-class, I  think, dear."  "But I don't like  addressing     It  would look as if we���������we wanted to  make his acquaintance. Then the compliment, Emmy," I objected, withdraw,  ing from a smoking carriage towards  whicli I feared she wus leading me iu  ber impulsive innocence.  "What will it matter?   He will never  know���������see us again.    Ah, I perceive our  man���������the very man!"  "Where?   Show nv!"  "There,   at the  window���������two   below  the smoking-carriage with the fair  hair,  reading the paper.    Come on, aunt Netty���������now or never!      Wait   till   you   seo  how gracefully I'll t������ukle him."  ������������������'"Wait a moment till I get a sixpence  ready.    One can't put one's self under an  obligation   to   a   stranger   like  that; it  would bo highly 'improper. "  "Quick tlieir, dear; the train will start  in another minute!"  But, when we got close to the cirriage,  when the young gentleman; raised a very  languid pair of gray eyes to our Airshed  faces, the girl's guileless courage suddenly deserted her, and, slippirrg behind  me, she whispered, with au , hysterical  giggle that he must have distinctly overheard���������  "Aunt Netty, I can't, Ask him for  ine, dear���������quick!"  "I beg your pardon," I began, "but I  want to know if you would kindly post  this parcel iu London this afternoon for  my niece. She has uafortunal.-ly just  missed the mail, and ic i3 important that  it should reacli its destination to-night."  "Certainly. It will give me much  pleasure to render this slight service to  tlie young lady,your niece, "he answered  at once, taking the bos from' me and  stooping slightly forw ard to get a glimpse  of the girl sheltering behind me.  "Here is sixpence for the postage," I  continued somewhat ungraciously, for  the young muu's appearance and tone,  though he was good looking and well  dressed, did not please me over well; ho  did not strike ine as" heiug a gentleman  somehow. "Take it." I went!'on almost  imperiously, as he ignored the coin.  "We had not time to buy stamps. You  must take it!"  There was a shrill whistle, the train  moved forward, ami my sixpence, shaken  from my hand by tho preliminary jerk,  dropped upon the line. '*  "Don't open it���������they're only roses, not  worth stealing!" the girl cried laughingly,  os he leaned out, evidently to catch a last  glimpse of her pretty face.  "Erumelino, "I exclaimed, very angry  and put out. "I am astonished at you! I  thought you had more���������more sense, self-  respect. "  "Oh, forgive me, auntio dear!" slie  pleaded, so penitently that my wrath  melted almost at once. "I am so  ashamed of myself! I don't know what  came over me. It was Just���������just when  you dropped tlie sixpence'.that' tiro  thought struck me that he might opeu  the box and let my roses all get withered; not open it to steal anything, you  know, but just to see if I was sendiug a  frisette, or false teeth, or something.  -And^you���������know���������he-did-���������look���������Iook=jH  little���������"  "Fast���������yes, Emmeline, you are right;  he did look fast, aud I wish I had. not  spoken to him. I should not have allowed myself to be persuaded by a girl  of your age, who knows so little of the  wickedness of the world. I wish tliat  sixpence hadn't fallen upon the rails,  too."  "Well, well, no uso crying over spilled  milk, dear; he has it now, and it wouldn't  be much uso trying to get it back from  him, I expect. Ha, ha! What an adventure it has bee.., to be sure! I'll  make Trot laugh over it all the evening;  and I'll tako yon off. aunt Netty, tiying  to snub tlrat wicked young mnn when ho  made eyes at you! Oh, 1 feel that I can  take you off lo the life, and I will, too!"  It was evidently of no use' whatever  trying to make Einmeline look at the incident from a serious point of view-. It  was of no use even asking lier to keep it  from the others,7 for sire would talk of  nothing else. And, what; is more, sho  did take me off to thc- life, the others declared, though I must say that I myself  did not see lire likeuess, or hear that slro  had caught to a note tho tone of my  voice 'when I try .to'-be-overpowering!?'  dignified, as tlrey said sire had. However, it amused my sisters immensely,  and of course I was, very glad to be ablo  thus to contribute so easily to their enjoyment. But I noticed that, though  Janet pronounced her daughter to be the  cleverest littie mimic she had ever met,  and Dotty complained of a stitch in her  sido from laughter, the performance did  not amuse my little Trot in the least.  She sat .all the time, her fingers busy  with her work, not a ripple of a siuiie |  once crossing her sweet pale face., Indeed, her gravity was so marked that I  felt sure Einmeline must lrave noticed it,  and dreaded every moment that she  would osk a question or make a comment tliat might cause the explosion  which we were all trying with  such fc-  Xjoopinir **fe* Boajcha  la nn   TCtTeottT������'  War  to  Strip  a  Tree,  Not a few are the devices of skilled  nutting.

A large increaM* in lhe force of men  ���������nrnployed irr the jilaccr anil gold copper mines of lln* Big Heud will bring  grist to the merchants of Hcvclstokc.  AW* can conceive of no more honorable  may of securing money than to get it  from a natural source. Our mountains  nrc full of mineral wealth, gold, silver,  copper, coal, iron and lend. Tlie  values heretofore mined aro but a drop  compared with the vast iiiuount still  remaining. Capital is required to  open these mines: once open and productive, yenr after year thoy will  enrich their owners, and as n profitable  investment they arc incomparable  with any other to bc found. Select  something which hns a reasonable  showing, something worth the expense  of development, and instead of scattering your means in throe or four or .1  dozen places���������unless thoy are ample  to develop all���������confine them to the  development of one property. The  more spent in proper development the  greater the value of the property.  The growth of this city for the past  two years has been extraordinary���������an  example of quiet, steady, solid pro_  gress. If the figures of attendance at  the public school are any criterion, the  population has more thart doubled  itself in the. period .mentioned. ..A  large number of private residences  nnd new places of business havo been  erected and the old firms have extended their spheres of operations. The  fact has become established beyond a  ���������possibility of cavil that'Kevelstoke is  rapidly faking her place in,the very  first* rank of the business centres of  Kootenay. These reflection's; must be"  eminently satisfactory to every resident of this place.  ! An additional thousand men oh the  pay rolls of trie lumber!.companies  operating" iu and around Kevelstoke  should and will make'this summer a'  business hummer.  said under this head, but when it is  remembered thnt lire plateau from  which so much has been expected i**  from SOO lo l.li!!') feel above lire rivrr  and I'm lu 2,(Kill to 2..1III) feet above lhe  sen, it will lie seen t hat, as ;r general  proposition it, is a great deal to assume  that at tlintnllilii.leri.nil in that latitude there would be no severe summer  frosts, even were then* no evidence  against- thai hypothesis. There is.  however, alniiidriiil, evidence that in  many years there are severe frosts in  June. July and August, frosts wliieli.  if they do not entirely destroy the  growing crops, render wheat unlit for  tloin-ni.'iking purposes. I'ore and  tliere through this report there are  references to low temperatures in l!'0'i  and oilier years, ,'Mid (inning the two-  score or more old residents of that  region with whom I talked in 11)03  Uiere wa.s nol. one who believed that  tho purls of the plateau country with  which ho was ;i<*fjn.-iiriIt'll wen* fitted  for wheat growing.  ���������'While  the  country  thnt  has boon  described should, in file opinion of tlie  writer,   not   bo   settled   by either the  rancher or  the grower of wheat until  there   is   more  satisfactory   evidence  that it  is suited  for either  of  these  pursuits,-it may  be safely prophesied  that after  railways  have   been   built  there will lit* only a very small part of  it that will not ail'ord home:: for hardy  northern   peoplo,'  who   never having  had much will   lie. satisfied witb little.  It. is emphatically  a  poor man's coun  try, a. country  where any hard working man   may. in   a few years..gather  around   hiin   a few   head   of  stock-  horses, cattle and hogs���������whero ho will  be able to grow vegetables and in most  years  barley and oats .and sometimes  even   wheat.      But   it   will  be many  years  before .anything can  be grown  for export, even  with good  transport  facilities.    The building of the railway  will lead   to tho development' of 'the  mines  in 'Northern British Columbia,  and these urines will  aH'ord a market  for beef  and   pork at. least: but until  thero is some such market, cash will  be very seal ce.   'During-the' construction  of the Grand?Trunk Pacific-railway, 'there"'will-' of course; bo a ready  'market' for   any  produce grown near  the   route  it  will  follow, but, such a  market cannot  lust more than a yenr  or two and  the  demand  for food products,  will   cease,    when   ehe   road  is  completed."

PEACE RIVER  !SI  Pessimistic Report on District  by Professor Macoun of the  Geological Survey Department.  A report on tiie Peace river region  hy James M.Maconn, hns just been  issued bv .the, Oeoloijicitl Survey's Ije-  Jinriment.    Following are extracts:  "After  a   perusal   of  ail publislred  reports on the Peace Hiver country, an  examination  of aluuist every  acre of  cultivated land  irr  that  region and a  careful study of the natural vegetation,  soil   nrrd   climatic   conditions. I   have  been   forced   to   the conclusion thnt,  notwithstanding the luxuriant growth  that i.s to he  seen almost everywhere,  the   upper   Peace   river   country.   Io  which so   many eyes are   now turned,  will neverl>pa country in whicli wheat.  can Ix* grown successfully.     That this  gttiin will mature occasionally thero i.s  -no'doubt, but that  it will ever become  the staple product of any considerable  are 1   do  not   believe.    The fact must  never be  lost   sight of that there have  been very few attempts to ^row grain  except   in   the   river valley, antl that  when these attempt's have been rrrade  they bave almost always tailed. "Without any exception, every report on the  productiveness   of   the   soil   nnd    the  suitability   of     the   climate    for   the  growth   of   creals refers to the river  valley, not   one   of   those   who   have  stated  that  the  whole Peace river region   was   suited   to   the   growth   of  wheat having any  other grounds for  that belief than the evidence afforded  by   crops   grown   in  the valley.    The  chax-acter of the soil  in dilferent parts  of   the country  has already been described, and  nothing further need bc  SIioob Named for tlir  >>w Eirn ���������m.  Because tho new Empress of Russia hoe pretty feet and is fond of dancing the faithful French bootmakers  have named in her honor a series of  n������w Russian slippers meriting admiration. Tho Tsaritsa is a rich black  satin, shoe on which a piece of fins  whito fc.ee is applied, the pattern  suiting the front of the slipper and  for other and particularly evening  go-wrrfl tinted satins are used under  lace. The Feodorovna is of the new  tan glace kid, soft, and pliable, and  has hairs of patent leather ail round  with a gilt or bronze slide. A white  satin slipper banded with gold and  twinkling like Cinderella's own .Is  ca-HeaS the Alix and tho Alexander is  made of patent leather perforated tc  prevent any injury .to tho . feet and  decorated with a bow of alternate  stripes of patent leather twisted with  satin ribbons of various colors.

Lcwln, Porlln, a  fllsttnguleheil German scientist, tho hutr ol  ���������omc copper workers ts alrnofLtjcertuiri to turu  green eooner or later. Tlie I'rsfesser hag been  Uudylnj; tho subject for the lust few yenr!  And he tells the resnlt of his liivotication In  the current number of the Deutsche Jledl/  inlsctie Wochen6chrlfu  .'   "For nearly two hundred and fifty yeiir.".,'  tresays, " scientists havu known that, tho Iralr  of [orsons employed in copper works is uptte  become green���������a curious fact, and one  wliieli  Is especially Interest Ine from a biological poinl  of view. The general belief, however, that tlie  hair becomes green ufter.ii few days* work  In  summer is erroneous. Workmen perspire free  ly during the summer and thu dust from tin*  copper naturally clings to llieir skin and tend!  to give their hair a greenish hue.   *!h!s green  however, can be easily washed off.  ;   "The true green does not appear In tire hair  of workmen until tliey have been   somo year!  Itthe business,  and neither  by washing noi  by the nseof chemicals can they ever whnllj  rid themselves of It. I   have examined  over  three hundred workmen and yet I found that  Only eight of them had any trace of green in  their hair. 1 examined one mnn, a  brass  polisher, who bad   been   twenty-seven years trine factory, aud I found his hair of a natural  color. On the   other  banu, I found    anothei  polisher, who bad a green beard.  Even anl-  ttals' hair becomes   green under such condt.  lions. This was clearly proven to roc by the  discolored hair   of a goat    which   used   tc  frequent a certain copper factory aud  whlcb  used to drink daily   without any evil   result!  the water in which the   copper was washed.  |   "In the  case of workmen the hnlr of the  bead and ' beard chariges color   more often  than that of the eyebrows, nnd,  its a rule,  the  beard changes first. On  men   with white oi  fair hair the   change   can be   noticed  more  readily than ou those   with dark hair.   Another peculiar fact is  that after 6orae   year!  the green may disappear froiff" the hair,  provided the workman is no longer employed ui  this trade. I   incwqneold   inau   whose hair  which was vory green while he was -working  it copper, became snow while soon after'hV  ceased to work.   On the other baud, a story  is told of a workman whose hair, which "was  white while he was at work,  became green  within   live    months after  he .'.bad -.stopped  working.  . f' " In the crises whlcL  I /studied the' ��������� green  wasspread evenly over the whole hair,  which  Is curious in view of the fact that two other  scientists    who    have    been    studying  this  eubject discovered more green at the roots of  the hair than arry where else.   The color itself,  I found, varied from the lightest green to the  ; lery'darlsest,,-.. ���������/������������������.-.;'������������������.'...'.'... ;:���������_;���������  NOTICE.

From the first easel to the  right of the platform the American  student, Hal Crane, sprang to the pint*  form and raised her bead on his arm.  It was such a young bead. The !oos:\  warm tinted hair lay softly against h!n  shoulder, and be noticed for the first  time how thin the small, piquant fiu-e  Was.  Yivon hopped excitedly the lenglb of  thf room and waved his small plump  hands for order.  "It is nothing." he said. "She la  fatigued, it: is so warm. Can you carry  her, M. Crane?"  Could he carry her? Crane smileri  grimly es he raised the Blender figure  In his arms. Why, his little slst'-r  Bes3, back in Crawfordsville. Mo., wns  heavier than this. He followed Vlvon  from the atelier away from the bit-  tery of nmused, curious eye3 to the  artist's private den.  "Ma foi," laughed petite Tvette, hnr  eyes narrowing critically, "that wn  not bud, that last, i think I slie. 11  faint, too, and let le gros Crane waltz  me off in his arms."  Laurier leaned lazily over her shoulder  and  scrawled  ri   rough  caricature  od the corner of her paper.  "Like thut?"  Ehe boxed bis ears soundly and  reached a greedy little hand after the  box of bonbons Elsie Ticot was passing.   The model was forgotten.  "Lay her there." Vlvon nodded to a  corner divan In the inner studio heaped  high witli pillows, sketches and costumes. Crnne ruthlessly pushed 1 lie  latter off with his foot to make room  for his burden. He laid her down gently nnd held to her lips tbe glass of  water Vivon brought.  "It Is Just fnlritncss, yes?" asked VI- ,  ron anxiously. j  Crane stared thoughtfully at the  white face among the pillows. He had  been hungry once back in tho first days  of the battle. The little home In Crnw-  fordsville had sent him out to the gr^at  city of his dreams, aud only long afterward had the fight been his own. 'To  thought he recognized the look tl'-t  comes to those who are tracked b.v t:ie  wolf. j  "I think that she's .lust about starr- I  ed,'* he said bluntly.    "(Jet some wine  or brandy or something."  Vlvon obeyed. The Americans had  a way that made meu obey. |  "Who is she?*' asked Crane when he ,  had managed to get a few drops of ;  brandy between the pale lips. j  "Oue of Ribaut's models," Vivon an- ':  swered nervously. Tbe sounds from  the atelier were not conducive to pence  of mind. Yes, she was a new one. Rl-  baut had sent her to him yesterdny,  and he had engaged her for the po'.=i\  the grace, the turn of the head, that  Une from the tip of the ear to the slope  of the shoulder. She did not pose for  the life classes, merely for drapery .-. nd  the poise effective. And tbe name���������it  Was in his notebook.

Before a mouth hud passed  she bad picked up odd work coloring  pen and ink proofs for one of the weeklies, and at last there cama a day when  she left Vivon's for good, and the future was full of hope.  "And we shall see. In-Ia-la; w������ shall  Bee now," laughed Vvette. "Ue is In  earnest, le gros Ciiue.*' The wedding  bells will go ding-a-ling, and the little  white faced Alrgiuia will have roses ln  her cheeks."  "It's all your doing." Virginia told  bim that night when they parted at  ber door.

"Please take it buck." shu said. "Vivon told me. and I ihink It was Just  6plondid of you."  Crane flushed holly, bur he tool: it.  He knew her pride uud thut to her it  was a debt of honor.  "And after today, wlrat?" he asked.  "I shall miss the walk home, und you  Will  foi'ttei   Vivon's und  uie."

You  seemed so different and little and  alone."  She was silent still, and he waited.  Out over the city some bells were ringing slow, sweet chimes, anil the sparrows were fluttering sleepily around  the eaves of the sky parlor over their  heads.  One of the roses fell ut ber feet, and  be raised lt tenderly.  "Do you think I had better go?" The  dark blue eyes looked up at him at last,  and he bent toward her eagerly. "Virginia, sweetheart?"

When   the  girl's  eyelids   opened   ho  smiled down at her In a friendly fash-  i Ion.  "Feel better?"  "I guess so." She hesitated and added, with a scared look In her dark blue  eyes.

Honors sit lightly on  Mr. AY'hymper, and he always declines to talk of those successes    which  ordinary individuals  would  be proud  to    discuss.   Having conquered     the  greatest of the Old World's mountain  peaks,   a oouple  of  years   ago,    Mr.  Whyuiper  sought  new   fields  to     exploit   on   this   side   of  the  Atlantic,  and his contributions    to  the  twentieth century knowledge of tho mountains of Canada is most valuable to  everybody  in  general,'   and  particularly to  that  increasing  brotherhood  of mankind,   who,    urged  on  by  the  spirit of adventure,  delight in climbing upon the roof of the world.  Wkympsr, the Mountain Clinbar.  Mr.  Whymper    will tell you,  when  you  ask his ago,  that  he  is  in   his  760th month, and while you are flg>-  uring out that he is in his 64th yeai*,7  you will wonder that time has dealt  so  gently     with him.     The  average  man would say that he  was in   his  "fifties,"  and    Mr.  Whymper    would  rejoin    that years     *'do   not    mako  ago,"  and  that his  seemingly perennial youth  is  owing  to  the core ho  takes  of himself,  and  the bodily exercise  he   daily   undergoes.    To   him,  exercise is  pleasure  und  health,    an.l  all that makes a man happy and contented.        So,     after     his      victories  amongst tha Old     World's  peaks,   ho  invaded   the   Canadian   Hookies,    and  this  year    ho   saw   a   great     deal   of  what there is in  the Canadian mountains.     He  walked   across   the    Ih.-ca  ranges which lie between tho prairies  of  Wostarn     Canada  and   thn   Pacific  Coast,   to  see for  himself  the hirtdeD  beauties of that picturesque region.  I.uiiG'i* ut Hardships.  Hale and hearty yet, a3 strong; and  lusty as a youth in his twenties, Iur.  Whymper laughs aL  what  thoso  who  whilo  away  tho timo at five  o'clock  teas  would call  hardships.    A tramp  of  500   miles    is  not   au   easy     one,  even  in  an  old   settled  country;     to  walk    that     distance     through      the  mountains  of British   Columbia is  a  task from which many would shrink.  "And yet,"  ho'rrsays,  "it  was merely  a   pleasure   excursion.    3   have     go.io  from    Loridorr      fo     Aberdeen,    from  Paris  to  Lyons,   and from  Paris    to  Marseilles,   and,   while  Great  Britain  and   France   are    beautiful   countries,  they  cannot  coinpai j  with   the  magnificence   of     these   Canadian    mountains.    1, started   from east  of Kana-  oaskis Falls on August 6th, reaching  Yale,  the head  of-navigation on the  Fraser; on Septernb, .��������� Oth,   and averaged   twenty-live   miles   a   day   when  the  weather  was   fa'toruble.      I     did  not   keep   to   tho  runway   track      all  the  time,   but  when   I.   thought  there  was   something   out   of   the   ordinary  to  see  oil  the  line.   I   made   rl-tours,  I and   was   amply recompensed    or  iny  i trouble.    There are lnutiy spo   ; worth  ' seeing���������and    this     leads   me      o   aay  that people  should  not* rush through  the mountain?   in  railway  trains, for  they miss a great   "deal they   otherwise  would    see;'    thoy  should  slop  over at several  places to  thoroughly  worship    the     grandeur    of,.-.   nattrr-o.  AV'hich   places   are   they?     AArell,      too  many places to give'in data I, but for  500 miles,   as  I   have  said,   the  lover''of nature has a world to admire."  Point* 2*sp*clK!ly Noticeable.  "The upper valley of the Bow," ho  said, "is not inferior to tho best  parts of the Upper Thames, yet aioug  the entire distance from Banff to  Laggan,   there  is     not   a   single   set-  fiii, and tn some matters our brother in rod could glvo us pointers.  It was a grand trip Mr. Whymper  mado through tho Hockies, almost  unaccompanied except by his own  personality.

Grub���������food we sometimes call it?  Well, he took a small hamper with  him, and contrived with the ingenuity of a trained mountaineer, to never find himseli' hungry without opportunities for grutifying his wants.  "Ono thing vis not.iccablo," ho  said, "X never saw a ferocious animal in all my wu!..s. Porcupines  there wero. and squirrels, but no  bears .nor mountain liuns." This  evidently was a dijujipointnient to  him.  A M������Knin<*������nt Manntala.  Tho Crow's Xest Peak Is t. magnificent mountain, he su.vs, but little is  known of it.

Through this country, in the valleys, were tinn fields  for settlement, but as yet they have  very few inhabitants. In his otin.  lon, It will not always be thus, ior  thq fortuity of tha land appeals to  the agriculturist.  On the subject'of the relative antiquity of the higher parts of North  America, Mr. .Whymper said:  '."���������; "I am 'traveling to learn, and to  learn about matters which are not  found in books. The fuct that n.  little to the east of AVinnipeg, a>-rt  thenceforward to tho East all ilia  way through'to Halifax, the exposed  rocks have been obviously ico gioui.d.  and have not only boen ice ground,  but hare been ground by ice for ct u-  turies, is a matter of considerable in-  I terost. In going westward town ids  ��������� the Hockies I expected to seo hii 11  more emphatic sighs of ice action,  hut I havo not found anything of  the kind. Thero are a number of  largo glaciers in the immediate neighborhood of tho Canadian I'acii'.c  Railway, but so far as I have been  able to observe, they do not prurxr-rit  any Indications that they have pmt  been materially larger than they are  at present."  Asked in regard to comparison of  Canadian scenery with other places  which he had visitod, Mr. Whymper  said: "I do not know any othor  part of the world of which" lt can  be said that thore is - not a dull mile  in over S00 miles. My walk across  the Canadian Kockies' wari undertaken because I felt that it was impossible to see p.dcquately tho beauties of this ' wonderful region.

Japan, China and V'ormosa are lli<3  only countries in which tho camphor  treo grows in profusion. The Chinese yield has never exceeded i.,20,0u0  pounds a year. J apan produces  about 8,000,UOO rvnnualJy. The production of Koruiusu. is over (3,000,-  000 pounds and would if uncurbed increase rapidly.  To take full advantage of this  situation the "Mikado's Government  four years ago declared Lhe camphor  forests of Formosa to be crown lands  and mado a monopoly of ths sale of  the cumphi i' taUcn from them. Quito  recently both houses of the Japanese diet passed a bill extending tho  monopoly over tho whole Empire.  Permits are uccessary before any  ono caji engage in tlio manufacture  of camphor in Formosa, but Uhiho  permits arc freely granted,, The Government, however, mimes the maximum amount of camphor to be (.reduced annually, nnd every pound  must be sold to the Government at  a fixod price.  Camphor enters largely into the  composition of celluloid and similar  products, and the ruotits get a.\vuy  with a good de.il of it. but the chief  cause of the great demand for it nt  present is its use in the manufacture  of smokeless powder.. Howevor, the  monopoly and the increasing demand  are not entirely responsible for tho  high retail price. The dangerous  character cf th������* work of gathering  camphor, and the consequent need  of costly military protection of tho  camphor camps, is a large element  in   the  regulation   of prices.

The camphor loresis are located in  the mountains back of tiro east  coast, nnd it is among these wild  devils that the gum gatherers have  to work. They are sent up into tho  mountains, pitch their camps and  gather camphor with one hand whilo  Uiey hold a gun in tho other. Though  their wits are sharpened by thc ever  present danger, whole'-parties of them  ore  sometimes  slaughtered;  The s&vagus are very dork and go  about nearly naked. They arc armed  with bows and arrows, knives and  swords and not infrequently with  rifles. Tbey are as crafty as the  North American Indians. Though  armed guards stand over the men  while thoy are felling ths trees and  getting out the gum, thoy may be  attacked at any moment, unless the  savages consider the fore* too large  for them to overcome.  The^ task ofj transporting tbc:> gtira  "to-llio-plains" is^dvFzf^TiToro^dahgei^"  ous than that of collecting it. The  paths are narrow, nnd tho curriers  cannot proscnt a broad front to tho  enemy. A strong escort, front, and  rear, beating the bushes and scrub  for savages who mny be Iur*:.ing  thore, is always essential to safety.  As a preliminary step the Government has detailed 1.D00 soldierr; lo  guard the camphor camps and convoy ths cuiiiei-f. If this is not  enough the Government will sciril &  larger force to Formosa, for it  means to put, ihe camphor business  on a safe basis,   whatever the com .  Tho camphor tie*' looks votneth.ug  liko a linden. It glows to grru: a^o  and size if left alone. A tr������������ centuries oW curl fifty feet in dioir.etcr  is not remarkable. But to get out  tho gum it is necessary to kill ihe  tree. Every part of it, including the  leaves, contains its share of- camphor. The first process is to reduce  the tree to chips, which are put into  iron vessels having cr.no shape covers lined with rice straw. The vessels are then l.eatod until tho camphor is volatilized. The vapor condenses on thc straw lining of tho  vessels' Covers and is scraped ofl in  the shape, of tiny lumps of camphor.  Thes<' lumps are refined and pressed  into blocks and are then ready for  shipment.  The Government lies lately introduced an ������ii*nnr.ed system of forestry in the interests of tha camphor  trade, nnd now for every tree cut  down another must be planted.  Violation of this rule means the revocation of the manufacturer's per*  mit.  l.ATK  JttKS.
