Marpole, in speaking to  11 News-Advertiser reporter on his  return to Vancouver, has the following to sny in regard to tho employees  of the road in this lociility :  " The   difficulties  contended    with  have   been    enormous  and   without  parallel in the operation of the railway in   this Province," Mr.  Marpole  continued, and, when risked how the  troubles   were   overcome   in   such a  remarkably short time, said:      " It is  due to the loyal and energetic support  of all hands, irrespective of position,  that the road is now open for traffic*.  Officials    and   subordinates    worked  I night and day to enable the patrons of  unese   ships but they were  without I the road to get   through  as   expedi-  movemont,  save that caused by the, t������������."sly .as possible,   and particularly  heaving sea.     My  SNOW-SLIDE AT  THE SILVER CUP  Brilliant Word Picture by an  Eye Witness of the Sinking  of the Russian Battleship off  Port Arthur.  "I watched the Potropalqvsk closely  as she steamed toward Electric Cliff.:  All was quiet.    I looked for the Jap.  glance returned to  our squadron. Moving at reduced  speed, the Petropalovsk came abreast  of Electric Cliff and the torpedo boats  were entering the harbor, when sudden tly from the starboard side of the  Petropalovsk's bow a white column  shot up. There was a double muffled  explosion, and the whole flagship became covered with orange brown  smoke.  " 'They are firing a broadside', cried  a gunner stationed beside me.  "But through my binoculars I gazed  speechless and horror stricken. I could  see fragments of wreckagefallingfrom  above the broken rigging of the foremast and flames of fire shooting out.  " 'She's sinking, she's sinking,' wail  ed some one beside me. Then the  Petropalovsk began to settle slowly by  the head,' heeling far over to starboard  until her rail was under water. Her  bow had already disappeared and her  stern was lifted out of the sea, the  port propellor still revolving. 1 could  see figures desperately clutching at  the slippery hull, rind tpngues bf flame.  Hor aft turret w'ithits gun pointing  sty ward disappeared, and the stern  was the last to be engulfed. A last  explosion and all was over. The flagship was no. more." Boats from the  torpedo boat destroyer: Gaydiimak  hurried to the scene of disaster. It  was forty minutes past nine in the  morning. The floating woodwork and  the men struggling in the" water were'  all tlrat was left to recall the splendid  fighting machine which a few hours  before had sailed out of the harbor.  "Eager to ascertain what had occurred on board the sunken ship I hastened to a landing where it small remnant  of the gallant crew were being put  ashore and conveyed to a, hospital.  Signalman Perchkoff, who was slightly wounded, was able to give me a  remarkably clear statement of the  disaster.  "He said: 'We were returning to  the harbor, the Petropalovsk leading.  Some of our cruisers, which had  remained in the harbor, came out and  steamed toward the enemy firing 16  shots at them with their bow guns  They then retired. The denemy numbered 11 heavy ships, nearly al]  armored, while ours were nine.  Against their armored cruisers we  had only the Bayan. I stood in the  wheel house on the bridge of the  Petropalovsk slowed speed and almost  stood still. Suddenly the ship shook  violently. I heard a fearful explosion,  immediately followed by another.  'Tliey"~s"eenied=ito���������ine���������to=be-=directly-  under the ship. I rushed to the door  of the wheelhouse, I met an officer,  probably a helmsman. I could not  pass hiru and sprang to the window  and jumped out. The ship was listing  and I feared that every moment she  would turn ovei'. On' the bridge 1  saw an officer weltering in blood. He  was our admiral Makarolf. He lay  face downward. 1 sprang to hiin and  grasped hiin by the shoulder and made  an attempt to raise him. The ship  seemed to be falling somewhere. Prom  all sides flew fragments. I heard the  deafening screech and tlie frightful  din. The smoke rose in dense clouds  and the flames seemed to leap toward  the bridge where I was standing  beside the admiral. I jumped on the  rail and was washed off but succeeded  in grabbing something. On our ship  was an old man with a beautiful white  heard who had been writing, perhaps  sketching.'  "He was Verestchagin, the painter.  with safety." It has been an exceptional winter in regard to the heavy  snowfall, and the weather for the  past ten days has been unusual, but it  lias lieen the means of demonstrating  that with the sincere co-operation of  all hands the greatest of difficulties  are soon overcome."  Card of Thanks  The Ladies' Aid of the Methodist  Church desire through the columns of  the Hehaxh to express their sincere  thanks to all who contributed to the  success of their bazaar and concert on  Tuesday evening. The total receipts  amounted to $275.  TEN MILLION  DOLLAR FIRE  In Toronto���������Wholesale Business  District Wiped Out���������Neighboring Cities Respond���������Fire  Still Raging  Tonox'i'o,     Ont.,     April    20.���������Fire  swept through a section of Toronto's  wholesale business district last night,  causing "a   loss  which  will.'-probably-  reach   $lo,oob,ooo.   The fire   started  in a neckwear factory on Wellington  street,   west of Bay street,   about 9  o'clock.

In less than an hour the flames -'.had  spread from building to building on  both sides of the street until the whole  block Was a mass of flames and the  fire was utterly beyond the control of  the local department. Appeals were  sent to every surrounding. city where  fire apparatus could be obtained,  asking for assistance, Montreal, London, Hamilton and Buflalo at once  responded, but it will be hours before  they can be of assistance.  It was believed at 11 o'clock that the  fire was under control, but a sudden  shift in the wind again fanned the  flames into a roar and clouds of sparks  and burning brands were carried down  side streets until three entire blocks  were doomed.  The firemen were making a gallant  fight amid the falling buildings and a  mass of tangled wires, but their efforts  at midnight seemed to be fruitless.  JUMPS FOH HIS  LIFE.  Chief Thompson of the fire department and George Dowkes of Montreal  were cut oif by the flames while  directing the work of firemen from a  roof. Thompson jumped six storeys  ToTTiie gT^HTd���������^1Td^fiiMculously"  escaped with a broken leg. A mass of  tangled wires broke his fall near the  ground.    Dowkes has not been seen  Causes Death of a Miner and  Considerable Damage to the  Company's Property���������Another  Slide Imminent.  News reached^ the city this week of  a disaster which occurred on Friday  afternoon last at the Silver Cup mine  in the Lardeau. A snow slide 1,200 ft.  wide, came down the mountain side  and took out 1,000 feet of the Baby  tramway, and the upper terminal of  the No. 1 tramway, carrying away a  miner, who was at work on the surface, named Man-able, a nephew of the  mining superintendent. The slide  also carried away the blacksmith  shops and the ore-sheds, together with  a large quantity of ore sacked and  stored there, and badly damaged the  compressor.  The superintendent of the company,  Mr. A. J. G. Swinney, places the loss  ot $75,000.  Marrable's body was recovered at a  point about 150 feet below where he  was struck. There is yet a second  slide pending, and until this comes  down no one will venture near the  spot to begin making repairs.

After a delay of a week, owing to  the snow slides between here and the  Glacier, the above company appeared  rU_the Opera House on Monday night.  They fully maintained the reputation  earned by them in eastern Canada, as  a company of first class artists. Beit  Harvey, as a singing comedian, is a  peer i.i his line. May Ethel Courtney  in the latest popular songs antl imitations of America's greatest theatrical  stars, completely won the hearts of  the large audience. Mildred Keith,  comedienne, and C LeRoy Kenny,  character impersonator, were equally  good. Should this talented company  again visit Revelstoke they are sure  of a hearty welcome.  since and^it is believed he perished.  From the Currie warehouse on Wcl������  lington street, where it originated, the  fire spread with astounding rapidity to  the west, destroying buildings occupied by tlie Eckhnrdt Casket Co. and  Warwick Brothers & Kutter, and Ciage  Company, and then made a clean  sweep up Wellington street to the  Queen's hosol. The thick fire walls  of the hotel and the concentrated  efforts of the Are fighters stopped the  flames there, but in the meantime the  fire had swept across the street, and  the block of buildings from Bay street  west of the National Club were wiped  out.  At that tima the firemen believed  that the fire was under control, when  a shift in thu wind sent the flames  roaring down Bay street, destroying  every building on both sides, fronr the  National Club to Front street. Among  the buildings burned in Bay street  were those of Wyld & Darling, West-  wood & Co., Galey & Co., Bond &Co.,  Asborn ���������& Slierwin, Ainslee & Co. and  Suckling Company.  The warehouses of W. H. Brock &  Co., Mackay & Co., Pugsley, King &  Co., Cockshutt & Co. and Brown Bros,  were destroyed.  Nothing could resist the force of the  flames as tliey swept down Bay street  toward the lake, and the firemen  fought back tlio fire from side streets,  confining tlr* fire zone to the one  thoroughfare wherever possible.  Several frame buildings which  threatened to cause a spread of the  fire were bjown up by dynamite.  Buy street ison^flre from Wellington  street down to the lake front, but the  firemen are meeting with success in  their efforts to prevent a further  spread, and it is believed the lire will  burn itself out there.  Bazaar and Concert.  The bazaar and concert held under  the auspices of the Ladies Aid of the  Methodist Church on Tuesday afternoon and evening was most successful. The bazaar, which was held in  the Opera House, occupied all the  afternoon and Was largely patronised,  the ladies disposing readily of the useful and fancy articles which they had  prepared for sale. A ready sale was  also found for the ice cream, coffee,  cake, etc., of .-which there was a good  supply on hand to refresh the eager  buyers.  In the evening the Opera House was  taxed to its utmost capacity to hold  the crowd that had assembled for the-  concert.     The   first  number  on the  programme   was   a~ selection   by the  Revelstoke Orchestra to which it was  indeed a pleasure to listen.   Following  this   came   a   solo    by  Miss   Myrtle  CatUels,   "Littlo Boy in Blue," which  showed this young lady to be possessed  of a clear, sweet voice.   The song wa.s  well sung and received a hearty encore.    ���������'The BIphin  Call," a duett by  Mesdames   Dent   arrd  Crcelman  was  well rendered, as was also a solo by  Mrs. Wilks.    In ii recitation  "An Bye  to the Future," Mr.  Humphreys gave  tho bachelors some good advice which  they would do well to heed.   A duett  ���������'Ruth   and   Naomi,"   by    Mesdames  Wilks and Bews, in Oriental costume,  was rendered with great feeling and  received well merited applause.   After  another  selection   by   the   orchestra  came the "star" number of the evening, viz., a recital  by the Peak Sisters  from Alaska.   These were represented  by Mesdames George, Dent, Creelman,  Bews and Misses N. Smith, Atkinson,  Pettipiece,  D.  Smith,  Valentine and  Stephenson.     Tbe    Sisters   were  all  dressed alike in black, waists with elaborate white fronts, white aprons and  high peaked caps loudly branded with  the initial  letter of the family name.  Each carried  a hat box and looked a.s  though   tliey   had   just arrived from  -suiiie^grand^milliiiery^ opening. The  Peak Sister's were under tlie management of Sister Cassia (Mrs. George)  who gave ii. brief biographical sketch  of tiie "Peak" family, alluding touch-  ingly to tlie death of their mother, at.  which ten white aprons went to ten  pairs of eyes in a very pathetic manner. Sister Cassia's story was interrupted frequently by Sister Sophia  (Mrs. Bews) who reminded one forcibly  of the "end man" iu a minstrel show,  with her humorous and opportune  interpolations. The Sisters then sang  with good effect a number of choruses  including "The New X-Rays," "lJoor  Old Maids," "You are my Honey*  suckle," etc. Sister Balhia from Boston (Miss Valentine) gave a recitation  in a highly cultivated Bostonian  fashion, descriptive of an ideal Boston  girl. Sister Dorothia (Mrs. Creelman)  contributed a solo, and Sister Sophia  (Mrs. Bews) chirruped forth at intervals. The agricultural sister, Maria  (Miss Stevenson) from the Rogers Pass  farm, told the audience "She Didn't  Know Chicken from Turkey," at the  conclusion of which she was presented  with a boquet fronr an admirer irr the  audience. Sister Betsy (Miss Pettipiece) suffered from the greatest affliction which can possibly befall a  member of the female sex���������she was  deaf and dumb. The Peak Sisters  also showed themselves to be accomplished musicians and rendered a very  soothing instrumental number on  what might be termed "tonsorial  jows-harps." After the Sisters had  refreshed themselves from tlie contents  of their hat boxes, another chorus was  sung and they bade the audience farewell amid defeaning cheers.'  Next on the programme was an  instrumental duett by Misses Dent  and Woodley, which was executed in  a very clever manner, showing the  young ladies to lie musicians of promise. A tableau in three scenes descriptive of the hymn "Sweet Hour of  Prayer," was exceptionally well produced, and showed careful rehearsal.  The singing of the National Anthem  brought a most enjoyable evening to  a close.

Ward  The Nelsen Daily News of Sunday  gives the following particulars:���������Harry  H. -Ward received word from Montreal yesterday of the death of his  brother E.E. Ward, in that city earlier  in the day. The late Mr. Ward was  manager of the Molsons Bank at Revelstoke and last December obtained  six months'-leave of absence on the  ground of ill health. He passed  through this city at the close of the  year, on his way to Southern California, and laterwent on to his home  in Montreal, where he died yesterday.  The deceased was 47 years of age and  had been in the Molsons bank service  for 30 years. He was formerly manager at Ridgetown and later at Port  Ai'thuv, Ont., previous to his coming  west. His wife died at JRevelstoke  last August and no children survive  him.  Alexiff Resigned  St. Petersburg, April 20.���������Viceroy  Alexiff has applied by telegraph to tho  emperor to be relieved of his position  of viceroy in the far East. It is expected that the request will be immediately granted. While no official  announcement has? yet been made,  there is reason 'to believe that the  above statement is correct.  The immediate cause of the viceroy's  application is reported to be the  appointment of Vice -Adirrir-alSkrydloff  one of the Admiral Alexiefffs strongest  enemies and sharpest "critics, as successor to the late Vice-Admiral Maka-  roff, in command of the Russian navy  in the far East.  Columbia Athletic Club  The Columbia Athletic Club have  opened up their quarters in the McCarty block, in the store formerly  occupied by W. M. Lawrence. Professor Jones is having the premises  overhauled, repapered and fixed up in  first class shape. A room at the rear  is being specially fitted for the ladies  and children, upstairs the bath rooms  are located and will be furnished in  first class style. The club is starting  with 100 members and no doubt will  be a big success.  Revelstoke  Rifle Association.

COLLEEN BAWN  _Vorv earnest and successful efforts   _  are being put forth  by those connected with the produclion^f~r,Colle^=Bawri''r  under the auspices of St. Peters church, on May 24th, and considering the crust, which is given below, there is not a question  but that this delightful  Irish  play redolent with merriment  and fun, will be worthily put on.  A number of new scenes are being painted by Mr. 1'.  Dunne the well known artist. This new scenery will make a  very exquisite stage setting, whicli, with the many artistic  and dainty costumes will make the play in all ways quite an  elaborate one.  Rehersals are going on all the time and no expense is  being spared to give the citizens of Revelstoke a first class  entertainment which will be well worthy of a bumper bouse  on the evening of Victoria Day, May 24th.

Incidentally sho corrected a common  mistako of most people in .pointine;  out that "tints" are iho light tones  of a color, e.nd that -'shades" arc the  dark tones of a color.

Th������ secret of health, as every intellb  gent physician knows, le free and full  circulation of the blood, and this clrcn-  lotion is dependent absolutely on thorough oxygenation. In many cases  where erroneous habits of living have  been so long continued that congestion  has become chronic in one shape or another���������obesity, gout, rheumatism, constipation or tuberculosis having  camped In the system and crippled it���������  the patient is not apt to be ln a condition to readily assimilate a su.licient  quantity of oxygon direct from the atmosphere. Tho breathing apparatus  must flrst bo properly developed, so  that the patient shall bo able to gradually Increase tho supply of air to the  gygtem, until at last ho recovers the  normal power of deep breathing.  WlUi the bnllalnfi: up of the lunga  through proper breathing there is a  metabolism o-f sill Uie tissue* und organs, so that, for most men, breathing  ���������serdses aro morn Important than any  mere muscular exercise.

Burk's Falls, Ont., Feb. 1.���������(Special)���������Mrs. Thomas Adams, ol Collingwood, whose inmost miraculous  recovery from Bright's Disease in its  worst stages has caused a sensation  in thc medical world, is well known  iu Burk's Falls. She resided here  for years befoie removing to Collingwood, and it was while living here  that she was stricken with the terrible disease that sweeps so many  into   the grave.  Mrs. Adams has many friends still  living in Burk's Falls, and they, well  remember the helpless, suffering invalid, who in March, 1000, looked as  if her only relief lay in death itself.  They can recall how when the dread  words "Bright's Disease" fell from  the doctor's lips, the report went  around that Mrs. Adams' doom was  sealed, that she would never rise  from her bed of suffering on which  she lay. They can recall how their  sympathy went out to the little children who would soon he motherless.  WHAT CAUSED THE CURE.  Then while they waited and watched for the end a gradual improvement  came over the sufferer. It was hardly noticeable at first, but as she  grew stronger and was at length able  to leave her bed antl give to her children a mother's care, they wonder-  ingly asked thc cause. And then  the truth came out. Mrs. Adams  had on the advice of a friend placed  her trust in the old reliable Kidney  remedy, Dodd's Kidney Pills.  Slowly but surely Mrs. Adams'  strength came back till she was going about as if Bright's Disease had  never held her in its clutches. Still  the skeptics refused to believe. "It's  only one of the vagaries ol the disease," they said. "It will come back  with thc winter." But winter camo  and went. Another summer anil another winter passed, and to-day Mrs.  Adams is able to say: , "I have had  no return of the trouble since Dodd's  Kidney Pills brought nie hack from  the brink of the grave."  And now all Burk's Falls, all those  who knew Mrs. Adams in sickness and  health, . are forcad to admit Dodd's  Kidney Pills cured her Bright's Disease, and cured it to stay cured.  Neither has thc lesson taught by  Mrs. Adams' case been lost. People recognize the fact that if she had  cured her pain in the back with  Dodd's Kidney Pills, she would never  have had Bright's Disease.

An  Immense number of people sleep on tha  left side, and this is tbe most common  cause of tho unpleasant taste which id  Eenerntly attributed to dyspepsia. If d  meal nad been taken within iwo ol  three hours of going,to bed, to sleep ori  the left side ls to give the stomach *  task which it Is difficult in the extvfcmd  to perform. The student of anatomy  knows that all food enters aud leavei  the stomach on the right side, am!  hence sleeping on the left side soon  after eating Involves a sort of pump-  lug operation which Is anything but!  conducive to sound repose.

The sound came through t'.iei  boards to tha boy. He was a tall. i������;ia  browned young fellow. Ills blu;> shut  was stained, and his bonis wore dtnly.  Ou the floor by him was his coat rolled  up fora pillow.  The door opened, nnd Maria came In.  Bhe was a smail fcirl. Her eyes were as  dark as her hair, anrl ber skin was of a  rich olive color.  She lighted a candle.  "I've been trying to get up to see you  ���������11 day, Dill, but I couldn't. Whera  were you shot?"  "In the arm," growled Pecos BUI,  "and It's stiff as thunder."  "It's your right oue, too." said Maria.  "No matter; my left's just as good.  But I've got to get it fixed somehow,  nnd then I've got to go away. When  that sheriff's convention finds out I'm  here the crowd '11 tear tha town down  to get me."  Maria bared the boy's broken arm,  disclosing a round, purple wound, cut a  bandage from her petticoat and bound  it  "I don't see how a little thing like  that queered me so," said Bill. "It  made me sick all over."  "Now fix my gun," said Pecos Bill.  He passed it to her. "I suppose the  crowd's all here by this time," he added while he watched her till the chambers of the sir shooter with cartridges.  "Curse 'em, why couldn't they go some  place else," he growled. "It wasn't my  fault anyway. Graham was cheating,  ���������nd he'd killed me sure if I hadn't got  the drop on him first."  Maria clicked the gun playfully.  "You'd been all right eef you badu't  got shot," she said.  "Guess I ain't any good any more,"  whined the boy. "Confound those sheriffs. ��������� I wish they'd hold their convention in Jericho."  Maria left tbe caudle on the floor and  opened the door. The crowd ln the  dance hall below was singing. There  ware loud laughs and the noise of booted men lining up at the bar. She crept  flown the stairs.  The dance hall wns crowded. Dark  ���������klnned Mexicans,and gayly dressed  Mexican girls from across the river,  cowboys and gamblers danced and  chatted or patronized the games of  chance. Three grave looking fiddlers  played on a platform. Across one side  of the long room was the bar.  Bob Cowan, who ran the El Paso  Dally Maverick and was reputed to be  the best judge of stock and liquor in  west Texas, and who'was pointed out  to strangers as "El Paso's next mayor,"  bought Maria a bottle of St. Louis beer,  Imported at great expense, and later  lanced with her, to tho admiration of  all. Maria, whirling over the slippery  floor, frequently glanced at the ragged  rafters cobwebbed overhead.  "Know that fellow," asked Cowan,  pointing to a tall, loose jointed man.  "Most prominent man in Texas today,  bar none. Sheriff, empire builder, he is.  Bill Sopcs of San Antone, president ot  the sheriff'8 convention.".  Maria danced and sang and enjoyed  herself witb the others until the sun  came up. She danced often with Bill  Bopes, her eyes shining, her loosened  black hair falling around her.face. and  her white teeth glistening between hor  parted lips.  "Who's the girl ?" asked Sopcs, lounging up to Cowan.  Cowan glanced down the long room.  Maria stood binding up her hair.  "   "Oh,"   said   Cowan,   "that's   Maria;  Mexican girl. She's a typesetter on our  paper.  Ain't she n Jim Dandy?"  "She io," said Sopes.  At 7 o'clock Maria climbed upon her  Stool at her caso in the dingy ollice of  tbe  Maverick and began  to set  type  _buslly.__She_could notj*oad_EnglisIi, but  ���������he knew the alphabet.  At noon Cowan wrote tbe story of  the sheriffs' convention, then In session  ln El Paso, and dealt the "lakes" to Maria and the other girls. Maria clicked  the type merrily until suddenly she saw  the only two printed words she knew���������  Pecos BUI. Sha found the big capital  P witb ��������� baze before hor eyes. Then  ���������he found the small letters, aud the big  capital B with the other smnll letters,  and set them up mechanically, faint  with fear.  The two words were near tho end of  the take. She finished lt. thrusting the  remaining bits of type savagely iuto  their places and clinging by the heel*  of her slippers to the rung of the stool.  Lunch time arrived. The glrl3 filed out,  followed by Bob Cowan, pulling nt tt  black cigar.  Tommy remained. Tommy was foreman. He set heads, read proof, helped  Cowan to "make up" the paper every,  day, and, when the proper time came,  locked th������ forms and carried thorn to  the press on his shoulder. Marin remembered a report, once current, that  Tommy was In love with her, but sho  had never considered him seriously.  He wns always so drunk, or had just  been drunk, or was irr a fair way to become drunk, that sho never had eared  to go near him. It occurred to her that  this was an exceptional cuse.  She slid from lhe stool ivlih tho stlcK  of typo In her baud, dodging between  the rows of cases, until ilie ,.-.ime to lho  lon^, narrow Rbelf where .rrre Ink nnd  roller, and (truck o(T a proof.

He gulped twice and  read:  "The morning session was adjourned  nt 12 o'clock, with twenty-six delegates  present.

"IDii'.s mla," cried Maria.  "Tliere,"   said  Tommy.    He  looked  curiously at tho girl, who swayed from  side to side.   She grasped his arm.  "They must be thrown off tho track!  Do you understand'/ Oh, Tommy, yon  will help me! Help me before they  come back from Itineh. l'ou must set  cet up as I tell you."  Tommy followed her meekly and  climbed upon bor stool. "Word has  just reached us," dictated the girl, laying her hand on the man's Inky sleeve.  Tommy swallowed hard and picked at  the type.  ���������"that Pecos Bill ls in hiding at  Plume's ranch, about twenty miles  from El Paso. He was seen there this  morning and wus���������aud was slightly  wounded in tho arm."  "Eet'll sound natural to say he's  wounded," she explained.  Tommy wagged his head. "You're  a smart one," he said.  "Tommy, listen. . I want you to put  that In the paper right after the convention.   And don't tell. Tommy."  "It'll tost me my job," said Tommy,  with a husky voice; "but, Maria, I will  ���������If you will give me a kiss."    .  Maria put up her lips without a  word, and Tommy kissed her on the  mouth.  She toiled through the afternoon, tortured by a thousand fears, until at last  Tommy, mallet in hand, pounded down  tho last form and carried it to the  press. The little inachlne rumbled,  and the damp, sticky papers came out.  Maria washed, wound her mantilla  around her head, seized a paper and  went straight to Pecos Bill.  "Find the end of the convention and  tell me what you see," panted Maria.  Pecos Bill spread the sheet ou the  rough floor and, easing himself on onu  elbow, read down the column. The firo  of knowledge flashed Into his eyes.  "Why, I ain't out to Plume's," he cried.  She knelt down by the boy and put  her arms around his neck. "I put that  in the paper," she cried, "to lead 'em  off, send 'em out to the ranch, so I can  get 3'ou away."  He crawled to his feet painfully. His  eyes were bright, and the blood was iu  his cheek. .  "Get down, can't you?" snarled tho  girl. "Don't you know they'll see you?**  She looked cautiously out of a window.  Many bearded, men were lounging on  the porch of a saloon across the street.  A rider dashed up to the -group, wavinr;  a newspaper over his head. Tho crowd  listened while he read to them from the  saddle. Then the men jumped for their  horses.   Murlu went out.  *vVhen sho came back she beckoned to  Bill. He followed her dowu a sid!  stair.

Bill's gun was ln his belt. Maria  drew lt out and pointed It at Cowau.  "Get down off that horse," she said.  Cowau dismounted, fuming with rage.  "Somebody's Bent tho whole town away  on n wild goose chase. If I krrew who  meddled with my paper I'd break his  neck."  "I did ect," said Maria.   "Throw up  your hands."  =Cowan=stoodiiby=the"horsefwitlrbol!r  arms raised above his head.

((  mn. douobty, uomisiox archivist.  historical documents has been carried on in three departments. This  stato of affairs prevailed for many  years prior to the advent of the present Government. 'Iho archives  branch of the Department of Agriculture was established about the  year 1873. The lato Mr. Douglas  Brymner was the first archivist, und  held the oflice up to the time of his  demise, a couple of years sinco. Soon  after tho establishment of the .archives branch, a records branch was  formed in the Department of the  Secretary of State, tinder tho charge  of Liout.-Colonel Alphonse Audetto.  Tho work of these two branches has  been of an identical character, und  to somo extent, has been duplicated.  This was made evident on ono occasion in a rather costly way. Cno  of thp branches went to considerable  "dxp>hsa=to^haV^  copied ln London, while all the timo  the originals were in the possession  of tho other branch. In addition to  tho two custodians already alluded  to, the Clerk of the Privy Council  has had charge of .some documents.  In many of tho departments there aro  papers of great valuo not only to  tho State, but to the individual, involving as they do quoslions of titla  and proprietary rights.  It is only in the anhives branch  cf the Department of Agriculture  that these papers are properly classified and open to the inspection of  tho general public. Under the circumstances Hon. Sydney Fisher has  recommended to his colleagues tho  consolidation of tbe records branches  and tho collection of volumes and  documents having any historical  value under one roof, a recomrricnda/-  tion in which they fully concurred.  Tti 1897 a commission was appointed to examine into lho state of  the public documents, end after investigation mado a series of recommendations. These form the basis of  tho action upon which thc Government havo now decided. The papers  and documents in thu records branch  of the Department of Agriculture, in  tho records branch of tho State Department, and in the Privy Council  Department will all bo brought together under the care of Mr. Doughty,,  whoso titlo will be "Dominion Ar*  chlvist and Keeper of tho Records."  From tho other departments will be  assembled papers relating to tho war  of 1S12, tho rebellion of 1837, tha i  Northwest rebellion, ths Behring seal j  ���������fishery dispute and other international disputes and other matters. Such  other papers and documents as tho  Qovomment may from timo to time  ���������do fit aro also to be placed in tha  custody of the P<?m'nio������ Archivist  and Keeper of Records,  Oliver  Cromwell.  Meiyburg priory claims the distinction Of sheltering the remains of Oliver  Cromwell. After the protector's death  on bis lucky dny, Sept. 8. his body was  embalmed and. after lying In stute for  softie time, was Interred with regal  potnp In Westminster abbey. After  the restoration his body, along with  tho?*-* of Ireton and Bradshaw. was ex-  hun d and hanged on the gibbet at  Tyburn. The heads, so the story goes,  were struck off and placed on the top  of Westminster hall, while the bodies  were buried beneath the gallows. On  the other hand, It is said that another  body was substituted for thut of Cromwell and that the protector was buried  secretly on the Hauibledon hills. At  all events, at the top of Newburg priory there is a nurrow. room, one end of  which is occupied by a mass of stonework built Into the wall. Here, it is  said, the remains of Oliver Cromwell  rest.  TU*a   I.erttl   Pencil.  The name lead pencil is a misnomer  made correct by custom.

Not ninny years  ago   Sir   Wilfrid,   Sir   Uieharil Cart-  wright, Hon.

And tbe west  is asked  to accept a sop cast here and  there throughout   .Kootenay electoral  division, as sufficient to atone for the  violation  of promises,   the strangling  of pledges upon tbe part of tbe nation's  rulers!    More than this, both Liberals  and  Conservatives   must deplore the  almost shameless methods adopted, by  those   who   aim   at   remaining  occupants   of   the   treasury benches.    Let  any  unbiased student consult the ollicial   report   of   House   of    Commons  debates,  and he will limi every statement now made   fully substantiated.  It is not our word, it   is   not our mere  assertion, for  Votes and Proceedings  are in existence, anil it is tbe bouiiden  duty   of   honest   voters   to   use their  franchise  according to the dictates of  conscience and  consistency.    All will  remember two issues upon which the  Liberals united (1) That no candidate,  defeated in  a general election, should  he elevated  to the Senate.    What followed ?    In IS^Xi and 1901. many Liberals lost their seat*.      Whero are they  nowr   Members of the Senate of Canada for life!     Again   (2) "No member  of parliament should  be appointed  to  an oflice (save and accept as a Minister  of   the  Crown)   during   the  term for  which he was elected to .serve his constituents."

As a mutter of  fact the rrotice in question only applied  to persons in arrears in 181)9, as was  best shown by the notice itself: j  "Attention is liereby directed to tbe  notice   signed   by   the  chief commissioner of lauds and works, and dated !  i2nd   June,   ISO!',   in   which   all pre-1  emptors or purchasers of crown larrds,  from   whom  the  purchase money re-1  liiaining unpaid on  such lands is over- j  due,  are   called   upon   to   make   full i  payment of such balance, with interest i  thereon, if any is due. I  ������������������Arrd further notice is hereby given \,  to all persons  who have failed to com- j |  ply with the  leqtiireiiients of  the said s]  niiiice that if such overdue balances of j  purchase   money me   not  paid  on   orj  before the loth   dayof   April next the \  records or agreements concerning such i  lands will be cancelled." j  mum  Moore Co., H.

Wo came down to breakfast 0110 morn-  ing in rather fretful temper and spirits.  Hetty complained of a touch of her old  enemy, neuralgia; Dotty, without any  iiccorrri table cause, had had a very restless night; and Trot, pale and heavy-  eyed, was'-suffering from headache.  Emmelirro was the on.y member of lho  party with unclouded countenance and  beaming eyes. Particularly beaming,  indeed, for this happened to ho tt'e great  morning of her week���������mail morning.  To celebrate which she hnd fastened a  bunch of bright red roses.in her'lowing  yellow hair, and sat in our glum circle  the incarnation of blooming happiness  and expectation.  Our meal over, wo separated to our  usual morning employ ments���������Peggy to  superintend her packing, assisted by  Hetty.for Peggy was starting for Brighton the next day; Dot to water Trot's  fernery, which the chiid was too ill to  undertake; and Emmeline to au idlo  morning at the lobby window, watching  for the   postman. 1  At about eleven .o'clock, my household  orders disposed or for the day, I went  down to the drawing-room to see how  Trot was getting on. 1 found horsittirrg  in an easy-chair, with closed eyes, tho  pain somewhat eased ; and I was just in  tho act of refreshing a wet bandago  Peggy had applied to her forehead, when  a sudden change in her face frightened  me���������from a dull pallor it flushed a vivid  crimson, then, with a little cry, she roso  quickly from her seat and fell senselesn  ut my feet.  I turned toward tho door she had he -1  facing and paw my nephew, Euimelii:v*'3  husband, crossing the threshold.  With a cry as intense as the girl's own,  he rushed forward, his arms outstretched  as if to seize her; but I had strength to  intervene.  "Stopl" I cried indignantly. ">"o: an  inch closerl Do you want to kill her altogether? Send the others���������send help to  meat once!"  He obeyed without a word, and in another minute they were all around me���������  Hetty, Dotty, Peggy and tiie three servants���������in a state of incoherent excitement, wrathfully pushing the wretched  young man aside, foi-, notwithstanding  my remonstrance, he was still struggling  to seize his victim's hand, liis face and  attitude, I was glad to see, expressing  some sense of shame.  "Go, go���������go at onee, sir!

"Emmeliiro Povcrenx, who.1 *,������������������>" married at BallaratI"  "Never heard of the woman !u .*.ry life!"  ��������� There was a. moment's compfete stlonce.  Trot rose to hev feet and stood looking at  hi 111.  "Well," I said at last in a high mocking voice, "it's strange, your statement,  for the lady has been here for tho past  two mouths, bearing your namo, wearing the wedding ring you placed on her  finger, receiving letters from you by  everv mail."  "She has���������sho has!"  "And it's strange, too," continued  Dotty hotly, "that you should havo written yourself announcing tlio fact, begging us to forgive your treachery toTror,  explaining how you couldn't have helped  yourself, you loved this woman sol"  lie answered not a word, but looked 116  us with a deep frowning glance, hij  hand grasping tho hack of a chair.  "Come. Trot, this is r.o placo for you!"'  Peggy whispered.  "No, no���������wait a���������a moment," Trot  answered, her eyes brightening���������"wait a  monicntl Phil���������Phil," sho murmured,  with outstretched hands, "whnt does it  ���������it mean? Tell me���������I will believe yon!"  The hard dogged look faded from his  handsome face; he made ri step forward,  then drew buck.  "You said, some of you"���������ho spoko after a moment, looking away from tlio  girl���������"that this lady, my wife, has been  here���������what, is hero now? Then bring  her to me���������quick I I am naturally ans*  ions to meet her."  Iu a second the roc.-n wns ck'nr, and  we were all over the house and grounds,  even out in tho high road, calling Em-  meline's name, making the still morning air echo with the glad tidings of her  husband's return; but no Emmeline  could we find. We came across Janet,  dishevelled, distracted, at every corner.  We sent down, at her instigation, messengers to the post-office, to Mr. Maxwell's, to the church, to our usual village  haunts, but without success. Nobody  had seen Emmeline sirrce half-past  eleven, when Eliza tl*e housemaid, after  dusting the spare-rocm, had beheld her  seated at the lobby wiudow, the red rosei  droopiirg in her hair, her blue eyes fixed  longingly upon the high road along  which the postman came. It was unaccountable,  inexplicable.  At last, I think it must have been folly  two o'clock, I sank exhausted on a hall  chair, begging for a glass of water. Phil  brought it to me, held the tumbler to my  lips, and I drank deep aud long.  " Well, you haven't found heryet?"  I shook my head, and I think I wanted  to kiss him, and I think he wanted to  kiss me; but we only looked at each  other. As he thus stood beside me, Trot  came in in a worse pligiit than, even I  was���������as regards heat and thirst, that is,  for her headache had mysteriously disappeared long ago���������and ho held the glass  to her lips, too, with another sarcastic  inquiry.  "Trot, my little friend," ho said. "I'll  never forget the devotion you havo  shown to me at this terrible crisis. If a  similar plight should befall you���������if your  husband should disappear mysteriously  any morning���������oh, trust me, my hand  will bo tho first to sound the bottom of  the well, to drag the���������������������������"  "Phil!" she snid; nud tho next moment the glass was lying shattered on the ���������  (lags and they were in each other's arms.  He carried her into fie. drawing-room,  closed the door behind him, and I rrrado  a rush at Hetty and Dotty, who were  coming   in.  "Netty, Netty, what do you thinlr  about Emmeline "  "Oh, bother���������no, bless Emmeline!  Well���������well?"  "They say Emmeline went off to London in the 12.35 train. 'I'hey say���������a'  least the boy in the yard, who's jiim!  como back from his dinner, says sho  went out of the house by the back door  when Piiil arrived, darted across tho  lawn, and overtook Phil's fly returning,  which took her at once to tiie station."  ���������������.     ������       *       -*       *       *        ���������  Our dear boy told us the story of tlio  last few trying but triumphant months  of his residence in Australia. On his way  up country to purchase tho property iro  had written to hi.s mother about, at the  beginning of the spring, he had had a severe attack cf sunstroke, followed by a  long and dangerous fever, which kept  him unconscious for months in a rough  and very shady establishment, half hotel,  half gambling-house, on the road to ,1  new mining camp. During occasional  TSnrniB~or7='ciSfn!iW7ii<se=js^6  the people about hiin to mako his condition known ro un. They had assured  him they had do e no; then, the moment he was fit tn travel, ho had continued Iris journey, and. thanks to the generosity of his partner, who had advanced  hiin hia nhare of the pnrcliase money, the  property had become iheir freehold, and  promised, by the sample of tho return it  was already making, lo turn them both  into capitalists before tho end of a year.  After that, not hearing from us, ho had  teiogrnphed, receiv.*d a reassuring reply,  had he.jun a letter warriiuj.' uh to look  out for liim befoio (..'iiristmas, when a  ft'cmid telegram from Mr. Maxwell urged  Iii 111 to return li'-me at 01.ee.  He had started hy the marl that was fo  carry l.i< letter, and arrived to {ind in all  apparently in I'odlarn, and a wife���������,-j  wife   "A wife!" here two or lliree of in  broke in excitedly. "0'i, Phil, do you  mean to say you really hrtv.-n't the faintest idea, who sii"--f?'.mtr.eline is? Oh,  yoo must, have! Why, sir: krrew lota o������  things ahout yoir!"  " Here is her picttiv, Phil,"cried Hetty  triumphantly, handing hiin a photo <,I  her and Trot taken together by an amateur artist, some few *veok������i ago. " Jt'j  not, very good, still "  "Polly Cunningham," shouted Phil,  the moment Ins glance fell upon the picture���������"Polly Cunningham hero? What  does it mean?    Whal, was lite game?"  "The game   wa.s���������was Oil,   Phil,  Trot, I'm sorry for you, dears!" broke in  Dotty, covering her face wirh hei' hands.  "The game w- - vnur money, your thousand pounds in r.'ie Kunils. Phil! And  ahe has got. it���������tin) minx! Mr. Maxwell  realized tier second (ire hundred yesterday, and gave it���������at, least, sent It out for  her. Tliat was wl at shu was wailing  for-."  "Well, well, no use crying over spilled  tuillr," cried Phil cheerfully, when wo  had given our disgust and astonishment  timple vent. "It cau't bo helped, and  ���������would scarcely pay trying to get it buck,  I fancy. But, hy Jove, what a game it  was���������what a game! 1 begin to sea haw  it was worked���������I begin to see! Site,  Polly, was in the house where I fell ill,  she aud u whole gang of her relations  and accomplices, her mother, a very  wily customer, and her father���������nt least  her mother's husband, for he wasn't ten  years older than his reputed daughter���������  Jou Bradley, a tickel-of-leave mar., ilrst-  class forger, I heard "  "Forger? Then, Phil, it was ho who  wrote the letter announcing your marriage; it was exactly like your writing���������  nobody had a doubt of it."  "Of course���������of courso; it must hnvo  been. I was sens-less for six wenks;  they were able to rummage everything I  had, open all my loiters, learn everything  about me. I had all Trot's old letters in  my portmanteau, all my partner's about  thu morley, drafts of mine to him, everything they could want lo know���������everything! Stop���������0110 thing I don't understand. When I left the place, aud got  clean out of their clutches, I continued  writing to you every mail, and sent Trot  my photograph. How was it you didn't  get my letters aud learn thu truth,  how "  "How?" four quivering voices answered in chorus. "Because sho got  them, Phil���������she got them fust! Marl  day was the great day of her week.  She used to sit at the window all tho  morning watching for the postman.  She alwaya met liim at the gate and got  your letters from liim!     She "  "Ha, ha, ha, ha!" I thought he would  never have done laughing. Peal after  peal rang througour discomfited silence.  "Oh, Phil, Phil, stop, you cruel boy I"  at last protested Peggy.  "And the worst of it was," burst in  Dotty, "she���������she, the wretch, enjoyed it  thoroughly! She got value out of every  hour she speut here, bamboozling us,  fooling us, torturing us with her wanton tricks! And���������and���������now to think ���������  to think she has walked off with -t ��������� ir  thousand pounds. ���������"  "yiie hasn't! She hasn't walked ofi  with a penny of it,r Miss Dotty!" Tno  speaker was .Mr. Maxwell, who had beeu  standing at the door Cor somo lime, taking in tlie scene with a. smile of intenso  satisfaction. "Nol a penny I I had my  suspicious of the lassie almost from thn  start, ladies; but you are such a set of impulsive people up here that I was afraid  to hint even an  idea to oue of you "  "What suspicious? Oh, Mr. Maxwell,  toll us, tell us!"    .  "Well, on the day she said Phil had  parted from her at Melbourne, I heard  by next mail he happened to be seven  hundred miles up country in company  with a cousin of mine; so that circumstance put me slightly on the alert.

Tliere was a certain flavor of the stables about the  word which offended their nice taste.  "His ancestor was Antonio I.," Miss  Anno would sny proudly. "The blue  ribbon winner at tlio bench shows."  Anthony had never won n blue rib-  ! bon.  In fact, he had not been entered.  Charles, the buller, had advised against  it.  "He'd never stand it, ma'am, liis  nerves are that shaky," he had said to  Miss Angellne.  But -when he took Anthony for a walk  he met Tam tlie trainer. "What cud  he git with tliat nose?" he had asked  disdainfully, and Tam haii nodded  -wisely.  "But, there, I wouldn't tell the old  ladles that there wasn't any chance,"  Charles bad said.  For the world of the Misses Hildreth  revolved around Anthony, and they  fought off the monotony of thei:.* gray  lives by an absorbing devotion to the  little Skye with the banged hair.  One morning in front of the brown-  stone Hildreth mansion stood a modest  cab, while before an upstart yellow  brick apartment house across the way  waited n victoria, with a crest on the  door and cockades on the hats of coachman and footman. Charles helped Miss  Angellne into the cab. She was going  to visit a cousin at Newport. She embraced Miss Anne and kissed Anthony  on the tip of his unaristocratic nose.  "Take care of hiin, Anne," she said  us she was driven away.  As Miss Anne turned to go in the  housa there swept into the victoria opposite an individual���������a lady, the un-  thin..lng might have called her. But in  spite of the borrowed crest and stolen  cockades, Miss Anne knew that nowhere in the blue book of New Yo'-k  was there t'.re name of a person who  wore a ring on her thumb.  Tho fat, red face of the person peered out eagerly. "That's a darlln' dog,"  she said. Then the good natured creature bowed effusively to Miss Anne,  but MIbb Anno looked calmly over her  head. '  "Who ia that person?" she asked  Charles.  Charles did not know, and Miss Anne,  with a shrug of her sloping shoulders,  trailed up the stairway.  All that day Miss Anne and Anthony  eat by the window in an upper front  room. Miss Anne embroidered ���������" and-  Anthony lounged on his white covered  table and was bored to the point of  extinction. Outside the sun shone nnd  the wind blew with -alluring freshness.  Within all was darkness and quiet and  inaction. And Anthony was young!  What rebellious plans raged in his bos-0  om will never be known, but that night  the Hildreth mansion was the scene of  a tragedy.  Bedtime came, and Miss Anne, with  her soft, gray hair in decorous curl papers, laid herself down In the stillness  of the big room. Anthony's basket was  in a dressing closet close adjoiulng.  For hours everything was very, very  still. Miss Anne slept soundly, with  her little, soft, old .face on her little,  soft, old hand, and dreamed the dreams  that come to such 6weet saints.  "Anne!   Anne!"  Wido awake in a momei . Miss Anno  groped for tho matches, nnd at once a  faint glow showed tho wonder in her  old face.  "Who called?"  She slipped out of bed nnd went to  tho door. Tho hall was solid with  blackness. She I intoned���������only the far  nway hum of downtown noises.  In   the  ominous  stillness  came  the  thought. Why had not Anthony waked?  She pushed the door ot the closet open  Iand*"ll3tened.==^I5utr=ito������giii,gIo--of^con-=  tented doggish sleep came forth.  Anthony was gone!  For 11 moment the little lndy stood  dazed. Then she ran through her room  to tbo hall and down the stairway,  As ;bu reached tho bottom a square  of grayish,white light faced her. The  front door was open!  Miss Anne's nervous fingers played  across tho buttons on tho < all. end  lights flared up all over tho house.  Then the bell connected with Clmi-ies'  room whirred In the dishinre, and  presently Charles came down !n a limited costume of slippers and long coat  "Anthony's gone," said Miss Anne,  and ������h������ wept.  Charles examined the door. "That  Mary came In lust. It's her careless-  ness," he declared.  There wan no more sleep for the  household that night. Only a weary  vigil, arid all the next day Miss Anno  wandered from window to window until at last shu crept fo Ilie door to welcome her sinter, and the ulendor little  women fell on each other's necks.  "I woke In the middle of tliu night,"  sobbed Miss Angellne, "and called  you."  "( heard," said Miss Anne solemnly,  "but it waa (no late."  Charles looked ovor the beads of the  Ilttlo Indies at Mary, the housemaid.  Then ho winked and tapped his forehead significantly.  In the ghostly stillnes.t of the old parlor the tale wus all told, and the two  lonely littlo women sat down to face  tho loss of the one Interest In their  barren lives.  But meanwhile���������Anthony?  By morning be was miles away from  the brownstone front. The dnys went  on, nnd gradually tire glory of his yellow white floss departed.    At times he  ���������went hungry, and his round sides became mere hollows, but in his eyes  was the sparkle of 11 caro free spirit.  Back of him was tiio dim room with  its confining white covered table, ahead  of him sunshine and freedom. But  dark days canio when he was driven,  lame und thirsty, from place to place,  and one niorning tin: light went out of  his eyes, and be lay on a path in tho  park, bis cars alert for tho sound of  nieruiein;: footsteps.  All at once there came down the road  a vloloriu. In it was tho lady with the  rod face, who motioned the driver to  slop.  "There's thnt darlln' dog."  Shu held out un open box of biscuits.  "Come, doggie," she pleaded. And the  prodig.il, tired at inst of tho husks,  trotted forward. .The footman lifted  him in, and ho sat with his dirty paws  on the fawn cushions and ate of tbo  fatted calf.  When tho carriage reached the familiar street the footman was ordered  to hold Anthony tightly.  "It would kill them sweet old darlln's  to seo him so dirty," said the k'tid  hearted person. So the small dog was  carried into the gorgeous apartment  nnd scrubbed and perfumed and decorated with a distracting pink bow.  Then the red faced lady hied herself to  tho brownstone front.  Charles took her card up.  "The person from over there," he  said discreetly.  The backs of the two little ladies  otiffened.  Charles hesitated. "She said she had  some news."  The eyes of tbe old ladies centered  with one accord on a black draped  basket on a white draped table.  "Anthony!" they exclaimed and fluttered downstairs.  When tbey reached the drawing  room, howover, and the vulgar awful-  ness of the person was revealed, they  stiffened again.  But the red faced lady swept forward  and put both of her fat hands on Mis9  Anne's protesting, patrician shoulders.  "I've found your darlln' dog." she  said.  What was a thumb ring or distinctions of caste at such a moment? Tho  frail blue veined-hands of the little women clasped the pudgy digits of tho red  faced lady, and their well bred voices  1 wero almost shrill as tbey asked their  breathless questions. Presently Charles  was sent across the street to mee.t halfway the cockaded footman, and between them they brought ln a perfumed  and prodigal canine, who barked excitedly and licked the faces of the old ladies as they bung oyar him.  At last Miss Anne sank down on a  sofa, her cheeks flushed, her eyes  bright, her gray hair flying about her  ears..^.       .-.-:���������..;''���������. "  "Get him a chop, Charles," she commanded.  The red faced lady interposed. "He'o  stuffed already," she said inelegautly.  The little ladies shuddered.  "He ought to get out more," advised  tho person. "You let me take him. I'm  that lonesome sometimes that it seems  as if I couldn't stand7 it" In her voico  was all tho wistful longing of the onco  busy woman to whom wealth lias  brought unwelcome leisure.  Before the eyes of the little Iadlc3  flashed a vision of Anthony in the victoria beside the vulgar, red faced lady.  But with their other fine qualities they  possessed the gentle one of gratitude,  and without apparent hesitation Miss  Anne responded:  "We shall be glad If you will take  him."  Then Miss Angellne made another effort:  "My sister and I will give oursclveo  the pleasure of calling on you eoou,"  sho said.  ���������-.The' faco of the person shone with  delight, for a calling acquaintance with  the Hildreths was a consummation to  bo desired.  But that night when Anthony was  snoring ln his basket-Miss Annio bent  over hira and sniffed:  "Musk!" sho said, with ii shiver of  disgust.  "And a pink bow," quavered Miss  Angellne.  They opened their windows, and the  Yres1r=ril'jh"t'~alr���������l)lpw==lnriiThen=!th"y^  crept into bed  to  Helen  blissfully   to  tho  deep  draw   breaths  that  issued  from the depy.*" of tu& Ilttlo closet.

McClure       A  0<H><KH30-C-<M>-0-0-0  Horc It did rain! Barbara pressed hor  woebegone face .-.sainst the window-  pane and strained her eyes In a vain  endeavor to catch n glimpse of the  gleaming white of tbe distant monument. Sho hnd been in the beautiful  capital of her country nearly twenty  hours, nnd she bad seen nothing���������absolutely nothing���������of it. Nearly twenty  hours of the few precious days of her  visit gone In Impotent, heartbreaking  waiting for Jupiter Pltivins to exhaust  himself and retire in favor of old Sol.  As a fresh gust of wind drove a volley of raindrops in a yet fiercer onslaught against the glass and dashed  them ln scurrying streams down the  dripping asphalt tho girl's head drooped  despairingly and she sighed.  Thc young man who for some time  had boen watching her sympathetically  over his book now threw it aside and  stepped to the other window.  "What a day!" he said as the ivy,  clinging desperately to tho -wall, was  tossed hilher and thither by the boisterous -wind.  The girl's face brightened, and sho  turned to him impetuously.  "Oh, thank good ti ess you have spoken  et last! 1 was going, to start the eon-  vcrsntional ball myself. I simply  couldn't stand the Eiietirre any longer.  Do you know I. have not uttered one  word thia morning since I ordered mj  breakfast It's an unprecedented record, hut the. strain has been awful."  'She dimpled roguishly, and a faint flusl!  ro.se in lier cheek. Me might think hei  very bold, this handsome young strati  per, -but. she really could not help it  The- limit of he;*, silent: endurance hat}  besn reached.. She must speak or���������per  ���������sh.  But the idea of boldness never enter  ed the young man's bead. He was  thinking how very.pretty she.was, hovi  soi't r.nd curly her hair, bow piquant  her dimpled, smile and how-becoming  the little tinge of pink In her round  cheek. Ke laughed- in comprcliendinj  sympathy.  "Why, I wanted to speak to you-lout*  ago. but didn't like to venture.-   Isn'!  lt tha very (dickens of a  dny?    Win  could   go   sightseeing   in   this'.'"   ns  1  fresh fury rattled the windows.  Tho gild's face fell n.vain.  "Who, indeed?" she echoed disconso  lately.    "Think of coaxing all win tes  for Just three days of Washington anl  . having the whole of one of them liki  this!"  "It ls rather rough." said the yotinj  man. "I'm in precisely tbe same boa  myself���������that is, for coaxing, read man  aging. But it only incre.i'ses one's ago  ny to look at it. Won't yon sit down?'  He turned a rocking chair with ilt  back to the window, and as Barbara  dropped into it he threw himself intd  the sofa cornor opposite.  "Is tbis your lirst visit to Washing!  ton?" he asked. *  "lly very lirst. Father coiues hcr>!  on business every "spring, but be bates  to be botleured. and I could never persuade him to bring me before. Ha  poked his head into nry room before I  was up this morning to say that ho  would probably not see me again to'  day as he had oceans of business to  do and an official dinner tonight, and  he enjoined mo most emphatically nofi  to think of going out 113 long as it-  rained. I have written letters to every  one,I can. think of, and if it doesn't  clear after luncheon I'll go to-bed!"  The young man laughed aud locked  at his watch.  "Why, it's a quarter to 2," he said.  "Suppose we have luncheon now. it  you will honor me. and perhaps the  outlook will be brighter by the time  we have finished,"  The girl rose with alacrity.  "I'm ravenous." she declared, "but  I simply could not face that great dining room again all by myself. I positively cannot swallow unless I have  some one to talk to while I'm eating.  M.y~,br.eai'^a8t-this-nioi*nlng_waB--.uiar-.  tyrdom."  That luncheon wns the Jolliost meal  Barbara had ever eaten and, she maintains, the most delicious. When It wits  over nnd they adj6ui'.'icd to the stately  drawing room ber companion left her  for a minute. When be relumed bo  brought with hirn a couple of books aud  a huge bunch of violets.  "These," he explained, when Barbara had arranged tho flowers upon her  portion to her satisfaction, "are guidebooks���������one to Washington in gent nil,  the other to the Congressional library in  particular. As tbe rain god is-still in  command of affairs, suppose we just  'do' the capltol and library right iiere  where we are. It's really, when you  think of It much the more satisfactory  way. If we went to the actual build--  Ing3 we'd have to walk our feet off on  tho hard floors. We'd have to lose our  breath climbing Innumerable stairs or  else have our brains nddled by being  Jerked up and down irr elevators. We'd  dislocate our necks tilting onr heads  bacit to see the pictures on the ceilings.  And at the end of the day we'd probably come back to the hotel cross, tired  and dissatisfied, having doubtless forgotten to look at the one thing above  all others we particularly wanted to  si>e. Now, with these valuable littlo  books we can defy the elements and  ���������tudy at our enst every detail of thj  buildings��������� exterior!? and Interiorly���������  but we caD absorb pricelesr knowledge  tbout therr thm si tin gazing at the  orlginnl- could never fell us. Wlrat do  you say, shall wc begle rltn the library?"  Barbara's eyei 'parkled. "It's the Inspiration of rrenlus," the cried ecstatic"  ally, fyet, let ns begin with" the libra,  ry by all means, and you may read its  kUtory aloud before we look at the pictures."  By dinner time they knew more  about the capltol nnd the wonderful  Congressional library than many a native V.'ashlugtoiiian, and tlrey had also  learned the height of Washington's  monument and all the details in connection with its construction.  After they had dined they repaired to  the palm room, whore to the accompaniment of sweet music each unfolded  to the other various chapters of personal history, which, strange to say, tliey  found even mora interesting than the  history of their country.  F.arbara's sympathetic attention and  undisguised interest encouraged her  companion to discourse at length upon  his occupation, prospects, hopes and  ambitions, a compliment she returned  ln full, being inspired to confidence by  the delightful discovery that her new  acquaintance was actually tbe Arthur  Howard of whom "Cousin Tom" was  always talking, who had been his FI-  dus Achates at'Vale and his comrade in  arms in Cuba.  The precious hours flew only too  <iuickiy now. When at last Barbara  felt compelled to say good night she  tripped blithely to bed, happy in the  knowledge that she hnd another whole  day ln Washington and that, no niatfer  how busy her father might be, she  would not have to spend it nlone.  Not even the undeniable fact that it  was still raining when Barbara pulled  np her window blinds the next morning  could dampen her buoyant spirits.  By a strange chance Mr. Howard  reached the dining room door just as  Barbara'and her father appeared, and,  poppa having cordially greeted "the  Mr. Howard who nursed Cousin Tom  through that drendful fever in Cuba,"  the three went in to breakfast together.  "I'm sorry, little girl, to have your  visit turn out so dull," said Barbara's  father as tbey were leaving the dining  room, "but there's a meeting of directors this morning, nnd I'll have to bo  with Hryce up to train time this afternoon, so I'm afraid- I can't show you  around today any more than I did yesterday."  "If you nnd Miss'.Warren will permit  me," cried Howard eagerly, "I; shall ba  only too delighted to be her cicerone.  Mine Is purely a sightseeing visit."  "Capital," answered Mr. Warren. "I  have a great respect for Tom's Judgment, and I leave my daughter in your  care witb perfect confidence. Only don't  take her out if it rains hard." And, accepting a hasty kiss from Barbara, the  busy man hurried nwny.  "Suppose," suggested Howard a3  they wandered into tho drawing room,  "that we road up the .Smithsonian institution ond the Corcoran Art gallery this morning. Then if it clears  we can go out right nfter luncheon and  drive round the city. By that incar.3  we can at least see the outside of nil  the places of interest, which will be  better than vainly attempting to see  the Inside of only one."  Mr. Warren reached the door of his  hotel that evening in a heavy downpour just as a closed carriage drove  up, from which he was amazed to see  his daughter and her escort emerge.  In spite of tho rain and the thick,  gloomy fog that enveloped everything  "Barbara's cheeks were flushed with  happiness, her eyes gloriously bright.  "Tou've never been sightseeing in  this weather!'' cried Mr. Warren as  they followed him in. "Are you both  crazy?   Where have you been?"  The young man stepped forward  eagerly, but Barbara forestalled bim.  ���������Laying her hand on her father's arm,  she said coaxingly:  "No, dear, we're not crazy; just engaged, and we've seen the outside of  everything, and"���������  "And next year, sir, with your permission." broke in Howard, "we'll  come back -together, Barbara and I,  and see thc inside of them all."  "Engaged!   Seen everything!" gasped  the  astonished   old   gentleman;     "All  insido of twenty-four hours!"  Barbara laughed.  "Two people and a guidebook can  do a good deal in two days���������If tbey understand bow to study the guidebook!"  she declared. And lier father was  forced to believe that they could.
