The fact of a mayoralty contest Helped to  swell the list, and gave spirit to the occasion.  Mayor Baxter was returned .with a majority  of 1,851, which fact is a seal ot approval upon  his administration during 1913.  Some excellent men disappear from the Council. Their time will return again. The wheel of  fortune revolves.   .���������".-. y ';"-,C-  ' Three aldermen were defeated. Aid. Cieland  in Ward Two, Aid; Black in Ward Five and Aid.  Ramage in Ward III. " Ex-Aid. Enright and  Messrs. James, Hamilton, Hoskin and Co.ttrell  are the new aldermen.  Money bylaws* were carried and approval was given to the Central school site as  a location for a new city hall. The citizens declined to favor a change in the rule of the road.  They went on record for the establishment of a  board of control.  LIST OF SUC0E8FUL CANDIDATES.  Mayor���������T. S. Baxter.  No. votes cast for Baxter, 6,504.  Majority for Baxter, 1,851.'

ELECTORS, FOLLOW YOUR LEADERS.  - City fathers, while quite Angelic in appearance, are, nevertheless, nearly human and not  above the need of sympathy and watehing. Some  of them are strong men and others stronger, but  all are more or less subject to influence.  To make good and efficient councillmen of  them show interest in their work from January to  December. Study civic, matters and be a "booster.' Their success is your success. Work for a  4jiean; prosperous and progressive city. Hold up  your head, smile and go ahead.  : Reeve J. A. Kerr is a man of clear brain, executive ability and moral courage. He is again candidate for the Reeveship of South Vancouver.

An interesting article from the pen of Prof.  Odium may b# found on page Two.  r ACKNOWLEDGEMENT   y���������'  The splendid majority that so fplly demonstrates the electors' confi-  I dence in my administration during the* year 1913, not only arouses feelings  | of pleasure and a sense of satisfaction out provokes genuine gratitude to all  who, by word or deed, sustained me in the contest  You have my heartfelt acknowledgment for your efforts and good J  will. r ������  Let me assure you that I would Choose defeat at the polls rather than ::  be recreant to the trust reposed in me jby the electors of this city.  x Trusting that you will have no reason to regret your action of Janu- t  ary 8, and with sincere wishes for a prosperous year and the happiness of all \\  our citizens, I am, (  "Its an ill wind that blows nobody good" had its exemplification in the issue  of the contest for Mayoral honors in this city. It seemed unwise and wholly unnecessary that a contest should have been planned or even thought of. Mayor  Baxter's administration, from first to last, was so free from mistakes and conducted with such evident ability that he should have been returned for 1914 by  acclamation.  However, the outcome dissipates all doubts that may have existed as to  Mayor Baxter being the free choice of the electors of Vancouver. One year ago  Mr. Baxter was elected by acclamation, other candidates having failed to qualify  This was regretted by none more sincerely than by TVS..'Baxter himself, who  would liked to have known beyond the possibility of doubt that he was the  choice of the people. -  I     He courted a strong and manly contest.  This year all doubts vanish from his mind and from all who may have  felt any uncertainty in the matter. Friend and foe alike now know that the electors of Vancouver believe in T, S. Baxter, and rely upon him to pilot the city  through the rocky sea of financial depression and danger out into deep waters of  progress, prosperity and unprecedented growth.  Great schemes, looking to the near and remote improvement and reconstruction of Vancouver and vicinity, will now have his strong hand to help plan  and execute. It is most fortunate to have T. S. Baxter at the head of public affairs in this epochal and formative period of our growth.  All citizens may be expected to assist Mayor Baxter and his Council to  make 1914 a record year in permanent advance. To reach this kicking and self-  seeking should be eliminated.

Westminster Road, now Kingsway, is being ;r  Renumberfcfcs^'* " - V~ ,l y , *'  The first block running southeast frotaa Mpin' -  street is, for the present at least, to renfirin.2300, ,  but the second block is renumbered 200, and thus i  on to the end. '  _  The office and printing plant of the Terminal  City Press, Ltd., is numbered 203 and 207.  This change is very gctifying to this company,  as it will prevent many mistakes as to our location. '  We freely volunteer thanks for all residents  oft this old. highway. Renumbering is appreciated.  Our mail should be addressed Terminal City  Press, Ltd., 203 Kingsway, Vancouver, B. C.  Why change the location of the City Hail  from Main to Cambief -^  The city is sure to grow east and south; it  cannot move north or west. The center of population and business must always be east of Cam-  bie. Indeed, Carabie will in a few years be far  to one side of1 Vancouver. We should plan for  the future and for the great majority of the  people.  "H."~B%'Steveni; HlV left Vancouver for 0t-~  tawa on Thursday evening of last week after*  depositing his ballot in the civic elections.  His duties will retain him in the East for many  weeks. If his time and mind are as fully occupied with Vancouver business in Ottawa as  were they while home he has our sympathies.  Mr. Stevens has not the heart to turn away  even the weakest man, woman or child any time  night or. day, hence he is thronged with visitors  at all hours.  GIRL'S INDUSTRIAL HOME.  Hon. W. J. Bowser plans a public opening of  the new Industrial School for Girls in the im-  "mediate future.- Thefpurposenot^Kis^gathefing"  is to acquaint the people with the staff, the place,  the accommodations and the needs of this much  needed institution that will at once commend  itself to the citizens of this Province and city.  The superintendent is to be Mr. t. H. Collins,  a'brother-of the Juvenile Court Probation Officer  of Vancouver. Mr. Collins and his esteemed wife  are well adapted and schooled to the work.  EXECUTION DELAYED.  It is to be hoped that all delays of the execution of Clarke and Davis will not resolve into  undue clemency or indefinite postponement of the  sad but necessary event.  That they are both bad men, hardened in  crime and guilty of the murder of Police Constable Archibald, is beyond question. To pardon  or commute the sentence is. to lessen respect for  law and cause a depreciation of human life.  The sentence of death passed upon them has  made burglars and robbers scarce this winter.  Law and authority should be upheld.  J. C. McArthur, candidate for the Reeveship of  South Vancouver, has clear and comprehensive  views on the needs of the Municipality.  VANCOUVER WEATHER.  Grumble, as. we may about the Vancouver  rain and fog, we are compelled to admit that this  eLimate is much milder than that of the East.  January is spring-like in every characteristic.  This winter, mild as it is, differs little from other  winters in this country.  Why not enjoy to the full the blessings that  are our common lot as citizens of this highly  favored and most promising section of Canada  and the British Empire.  John Graham has been in Vancouver  fourteen,  years.   He has been a resident of Ward One, South  Vancouver, for seven years and is a very successful  business man.  ���������w  i  I  *T =0-.vf   -^..;���������f  r;:^yi->yy^yA<:s,^j  '   tl  ri --  THE WESTERN CALL.

Owen Bulkeley, A.K.C., wrote an article to the "Western Call," on the subject of the  "Tribe of Naphtali" being in Morocco. Making  a few comments on this article, I wrote to the  "Call" and expressed the thought that I believed  Naphtali is located, officially where Ephraim is  nationally situated, and where a blood successor  of David, the King of Israel and Judah, is how  ruling.  .. ��������� ."��������� ';���������;  Mr. Bulkeley, commenting on my remarks,  writes as follows: "Prof. Odium's referenceto  the Old Testament 'to set up the throne of David  over Israel' and over Judah' (2 Sam. 3-10) is set  aside by the subsequent rending of the Kingdom  into Israel and Judah, a state of things that existed to the captivity."  I used the quotation, from 2 Sam. 3-10* to emphasize the fact that the two houses of Israel and  Judah existed even in the days of King David,  many years before the separation into the two  Kingdoms, Judah under Rehoboam, and Israel under Jeroboam. Even though these two houses  were composed of the twelve tribes descended  from Jacob's twelve sons, they carried the spirit  of separation at least eighty years before the  ''final,division into two kingdoms.  Mr. Bulkeley then proceeds to deal with my  next quotation in the following words: "The  other reference, 'David,shall never want \2 man  to sitfuponthe thronie of the -House of, Israel,'  does hot necessarily Insist on the j>r&sen,ce~,of the  twelve tribes, OR rEVEN REPRESENTATIVES  OF THE SAME, wherever that throne, in the  present scattered condition ,,of Israel, inay be supposed to exist." ���������    . -i:^ ."a-   v- ������������������������������������������������������    '���������-"  This quotation from Mr. Bnlkeley gives me  much surprise, and must/ set a-thinking a good  many close readers of the, Scriptures.  I shall take the iiljerty^f re-sta������g Mr.(Bulke-'  ley's expressed thought freely in mf- own words, y  In effect, he says, though the J)6rcl promised  that King David WOULD NEVER WANT A MAN  TO SIT UPON THE THRONE OF THE HOUSE ;  OF ISRAEL, yet it is not necessary to have the  twelve tribes, together so as' to give effect to this  promise. And he then proceeds to add that it is  not even necessary tohave representatfres of these'  tribes under the Royal Rule of King P^id^s blood  successor. '���������'���������'. /; ';.''''.''',,.!''.  l'.,.',,.  Perhaps Mr. Bulkeley knows that the House of  Israel had its own throne, and in like manner  Judah had its own throne. The throne of the  House of Israel, not of Judah, was promised a  King descended from David; and this throne was  to be ALWAYS ruled over by a Davidic sovereign!. '������������������".���������_;���������.: '..:������������������ .

D. 1913, Decern-;  ber, these tribes were not together, at least representatively? If they are not together as Ten  Tribes (Mr. Bulkeley uses the words "Twelve  Tribes"���������the promise was not to the TWELVE  TRIBES, but to the House of Israel, and this excludes the Tribe of Judah), and; if they are not  together in some REPRESENTATIVE capacity,  then how can the Successor of David sit on the  throne of Israel? And, further, if he be not on  this throne, then how much can we rely on the  promises of the Almighty? He has promised. Has  (Centlnutd on Page 7)  -������������������' ,y  THE...

In this silence we found  the acme of cunning cruelty. Any day,  at any hour, some other mystifying,  soul-torturing incident was liable to  occur.  I tried to argue that the seventh day  was Implied,:Inasmuch as the second  bote-was received on the same day of  the month as the first, and was a mere  continuation of the original threat.  But my contention lacked the intrinsio  Btrength which carries conviction,  and, as Cameron put It, we could only  "watch, and wait;'* for the communications offered no alternative. They  made no demand which being com-  filled with would avert penalty. Only  ntplacable and inevitable retribution,  calm, patient, and determined, effused  from every line.  But, In spite of Cameron's evident  anxiety���������and In using that term I am  Very mildly stating his obvious condition of mind���������he sternly refused to  consult either the police or the private  detectives.  "You may not know," he explained,  "that I am largely interested in a certain line of Industrial enterprises, the  shares of which are listed on the New  York Stock Exchange.

Nevertheless there were several  features of the affair, chief of them  the manner in which the letters were  received, which caused me to dwell  with some mental persistence on this  as the most profitable ground for speculation.

With the new day, too, and the  sunlight, and the cheery brightness of  my own rooms/there came a lifting of  that oppressive atmosphere of the esoteric which at Cameron's had set my  nerves out of plumb and my reason  on the bias. Indeed I was fully convinced that we had been foolishly constructing an Alpine chain out of a miserable little row of mole hills, and I  determined to lose no time in bringing  Cameron, whom I now regarded as  most needlessly alarmed, to my own:  wholesome my of thinking.  Directly after breakfast, therefore, I  Bet forth on foot for my neighbor's,:  choosing the shore road as the more'  direct of the two routeB. . j  Personally, my taste In landscape is.  for distant view in preference to near-'  at-hand foliage.   My own house, which;  Is fashioned In semblance of a Pom-  pellan villa, Its    cream-white   walls  punctuated with shutters of a somewhat vivid pea-green and crowned by  Iftntly sloping roofs of the same  bright -color, gases out across Stamford Harbor and the blue waters of  'the Sound, to where on clear days the  pencilled outline of Eaton's Neck  shows purple in the distance. There  are no towering, umbrageous trees to  Interrupt the outlook; only low, care-  jfuUy-trLmaied shrubs, adorning a  iseries of marble sculpture-dotted ter-  jraces, well below the line of vision.  'But the Cameron place, reflecting the  iTownsbury penchant for arboriculture,  lis quite the reverse. The prospect  [from the windows and verandahs of  ithe fine old mansion is all green vistas  land leafy perspectives, with only a  'glint of sun-sparkled waves, chance-  'caught between gray boles or when  [the wind spreads a momentary opening In the foliage.  ]   My way to Cameron's led through a  [veritable forest of such luxuriant ieaf-  ���������Ki i M * M..M > 'iSfU*8* the pa������h_mor* ifean half the.  &J  time 'Was In twilight, "wmTe t5"^'glT  and left the shadows deepened Into  dark In the clotBtral recesses of the  woodland heart. The silence was profound. No voice of bird nor scurrying  foot of squirrel invaded the morning,  hush of those ramous depths. My own  .footsteps on the soft turf returned no  [sound.   '::.  ��������� half-mile or more I bad walked in  (thla mute greenwood peace, when  'sharp and clear there echoed through  'the verdurous aisles the crack of a,  Mile, and I came to a midden, lnvolun-  jtary halt. ���������"'..���������. -. ���������  ', Then it occurred tome that it was the  'third day' of the open season for rail  jblrds, and that it was the report of a  shot-gun I had heard, flred by some!  sportsman, off on the 'shore, there, to  my right. And so I resumed my tramp,  with ears keen for a repetition. Almost immediately I was rewarded, and!  then I knew, that' It was no rail bird  gunner, for the shot was unmistakably  a rifle shot, and it was fired in the:  depth of the wood, to the left of me.  Three times more I heard it, in fair-i  Iy rapid succession, and sounding always from about the same direction. I  cannot say that it gave me any uneasiness, but it perplexed me In a mild  way, arousing a passing curiosity as  to its object. And then, I came out  upon the well-kept, gravelled drive  which circles the close-croppedf velvety Cameron lawn, and catching!  sight of Cameron himself, in riding  breeches and puttees, romping with:  one of his picturesquely graceful Rut-1  . sian wolf-hounds, promptly forgot an  about it.  He came across the sward to meet  me.^the great, gaunt white hound;  pressing close to his side, and I  thought I Baw that he, too, had experienced the inspiriting Influence of  the morning.      . :;  .   ���������*l have found an answer," J cried,  iirhlle be was BtlH fifty yards away,,  ["possibly the answer."  > He raised his brow's in question, and  ithe hound, with open Jaws, fondled his  I^lBt.

You must see them."  *T want to," I returned.  '   "What do you say to tennis V he  suggested, irrelevantly.   "Just a pet.  It's a fine morning for tennis."  "If you can lend me a pair of shoes,"  I consented, glaring down at my boots.  "A dozen pairs," he smiled. "Come  up to my dressing room. l������ouls will fit  you out."  I was scarcely prepared for this'  change in my friend's mood, and far  from happy over it He was evidently,  determined to ignore the subject that  had so engrossed us the night before,,  hoping to find surcease of harassing  thought In a restless round of activities. The condition was a morbid one  which I believed should be discouraged; the more so as I possessed what  I fancied was a perfectly practical so--  lutlon of that which hitherto bad  seemed to us an inexplicable phenomenon. And I was a little annoyed,,  too, that my good tidings should be  thus disregarded.  When, therefore, we had entered  'the. hall and Cameron was leading towards the broad, ascending staircase,  ii paused.  < "Do you mind giving me just a  minute?"  : He stopped, turned, and stood In  JQuestlonlng silence.  "A minute in your study," I added,.  In explanation.  ' Reluctantly, it seemed to me, ha]  crossed to the study door, and throwing it open, stood aside that I might!  precede him.   ���������  The room appeared far lets grim  and gloomy than when I had last en*  tered it Its windows faced the  |south;   and between the olive-green  gipestry curtains the sun poured In a  ood, lighting up the far corners, glint*  Ing on the gilt ornaments of the writing table, and bathing in danllng  ���������plendor the burnished bronses on the!  orowded top of the book-shelves. '  "I see you are not disposed to re-j  sume our discussion of last night," I  began, when Cameron, having closed)  the door behind him, halted just in-;  side, and with hands in pockets, await-:  ed my opening. "But I want to show1  you that we have been in very much,  the same position as the wondering|  children* who watch the prestldlglta-i  teur. We have imagined something;  amazingly like a miracle, which, in;  point of fact. Is capable of a very simple, commonplace explanation."  "You mean the cutting out of the  head of the portrait?" he asked, with,  kindling interest.  "I do."  "You have discovered how it was1  done, before my eyes, so to speak,  and yet���������2"  "I have discovered how it may have  been done," I interrupted.  He moved his head just perceptibly  from side to side in skeptical gesture.

C. McARTHUR  MB. J. G. McARTHUR.  ::  A prominent supporter of Mr. J. C. McArthur is the  ������[; writer of the following sketch of his life: ^  Mr. J. C. McArthur, candidate for the Reeveship of South ���������������  ',', Vancouver, is a native of Stayner, County Simcoe, Ont., where ��������� >  ',', he received his early training in the public schools, afterwards '.'.  * serving "an extended apprenticeship in building and general *  construction. _ t  At the age of eighteen he became identified with contract  work in the town of Collingwood on Georgian Bay and carried  on a successful business in this line for a number of years.  In 1882 the spirit of migration and adventure, so'characteristic of our young Eastern manhood induced him to turn  > towards the West, and he journeyed to Manitoba, taking up a  i temporary residence at Emmerson in order to dispose of some |  1 company interests, after which he< removed to Moosimin, Sas- X  ������ katchewau.  It was in the town of \Moosiu4n, that 3tr. McArthur may  ��������������� be said to have made his debut into public life.   Elected as a  ���������* School Trustee for a-period of two years, he served in sucr ���������  Ii cession as Justice of'the Peace, Councillor, and in 1891 was $ \  \ l tendered the nomination for the Reeveship without a dissenting. X?  j* voice, and with the prospect of being elected by acclamation. %  He Reclined the honor, however, having decided to take up his j*  residence in Pritish Columbia. .(������  Since coming to this Province, in 1891, he has lived in X  New Westminster, and since 1906 in South Vancouver. Mr. y  McArthur has been a life long Conservative, and has always %  taken an active interest in the politics of his country. He has  been associated in yarious capacities with the Conservative  X Association of South Vancouver since its inception.   In 1900  * he held the enviable  positifcnr of  Grand Councillor of  the  Royal Templars of R. C, in the interests of temperance, and  which office he  i ��������� was, appointed License Commissioner in 1906,  ���������;, still-retains.   As a citizen of South Vancouver he takes an %  ���������; active part in anything for the advancement of the Municipal- Y  % ity in which he lives." " ^^-^-.^  1912 he was elected to the position of School Trustee,  ��������������� and at the last session of the Trustees' Association he was not  *\ only made vice-president, hut was chosen as a delegate-to  ���������; represent British Columbia at the Teachers' and Trustees'  Association to be held in Saskatchewan in Mareh3>19l4.  Among other things, Mr. McArthur has the distinction of  being one of the oldest active Justices of the Peace in the  Province, with the enviable record of not having had a reverse  decision of any higher courts, ^e is at present Police Magistrate of Point Grey.  A man of sober temperament with mature experience and  a broad conception of civic life and good citizenship, he stands  X like a" Druid of Eld'' among his contemporaries for public  X office. No higher tribute could be paid to the best there is in  y South Vancouver than to invest him with the insignia of office  IC for 1914.  ^j;l|M^ltl^^.<.ll^^.^i1M^^l^l^l^,^i|l^^���������^^M;M^<���������,l,^,���������^l���������lM|,^n^lii.l���������llMKlIl���������ln^.,;���������l^l���������^,l;l,tl.^4  Leading Planks in My Platform     f  1.

That I will at all times endeavor to keep in close  touch with the wants of the people, and have all matters^ of  Muncipal importance discussed in public before incurring  further expense on the ratepayers.  8.

I have served the Municipality as Reeve for the past two  years, and I am sure that all will agree they have been the most  j. strenuous years, possibly,, in the history of our Municipality.  ill My policy has always been a progressive one. I believe that  ������������������South Vancouver should advance. We must not stand still  ��������� ��������� nor rest, as this would mean going backward; but progress  '/. must be tempered with care and economy.    ��������� ]l ~  l\        Early in 1913 the Council along with the Coiuicil of Vau-  11 couver city, went to the Government petitioning theni to pass J  || a ;:l)ill for the annexation of South Vancouver to the city.   You  V. know the outcome. .  i! I am in favor of doing everything possible to strengthen  ;; our fire department.  ';        We must continue our endeavors along the lines of secur-  ���������j; ing a permanent water supply.   Very much has been accom-  f plished during the past two years regarding this most vital  X necessity. *  X ���������'       I favor the encouragement of industries in our Munici-  J'pality.'   ��������������������������� -;,:;���������;;'._ ;  % I would also favor the erecting at the earliest possible ^  % date of an electric plant for the supplying of cheaper light in  % our Municipality, as well as cheaper power.  I favor Municipal Ownership of our JPublic Utilities.  In closing, I wisji to say that;if;returned for the year 1914, &  I will, as in the past, endeavor to serve the best interests of all, *; ��������� 1  always endeavoring to uphold the credit and dignity of our *4    I  Municipality. .

With  three candidates in the field it would be difficult to predict  with certainty the outcome of the contest. Probably his  strongest opponent is J. C.

"It would be quite possible for any  one, knowing that you were absent,  to spend an hour or so hero uninterrupted?"  "Any one?" he questioned.  "Any one who had gained entrance  to. the house," I amplified.  "Oh, yes, I presume so."  "They -would have  ample time to  . ������lear a space on the    book-shelves,  climb up, and carefully cut out   the  head, or any part, or the whole of   a  portrait, if they were so inclined?"  I paused for his answer, but he only  smiled with a sort of incredulous tolerance.  "Would they not?" I Insisted. But  Cameron was most perverse this morn*  ing.  "My dear Clyde," be scoffed, "of  What use Is all this? The portrait was  oat, not while X was absent, but while  I was present. I saw it complete at  three o'clock; at twelve minutes past  three, It was mutilated."  "My contention is," I explained,  quite patiently, "that while you saw  It complete at three o'clock, the cut  had already been made, bat the cat  'portion had not been removed. In  letter words, the catting having been  {deftly done with a thin, sharp knife, it  was perfectly feasible to leave the por.  trait apparently intact, though with  ithe slightest effort the Incised portion  could subsequently be released���������-with,  isay,-a piece of cord, glued to the back  Ifor that especial purpose."  Now that I had made myself clear,  Cameron was quick to acknowledge  tthe possibility of such a method.  "And the cord, you mean, led down  .behind the book-shelves, and perhaps  through a window?" he suggested.  "Precisely. And was polled by some  ione on the outside."  ��������� "Yes," he said, thoughtfully. "Such  ���������an explanation Is not unreasonable.  [The thing, really, mast have been  done In some such way."  "And don't you see," I hurried on  (with my advantage, ."how utterly  icheap this makes the whole affair?  [There's nothing at all Impressive in  ithat performance when you find out  ihow It was done. If the next detaon-  jstration is no better than such clap-  'trap, yon may rest assured you have  fa very plcayunlsh sort of mountebank  ivttlain to deal with. So, cheer up, my  Idear man, and I'll show you a few  Itrlcks at tennis that may be equally  i������ye-opentng."  Unquestionably jny friend appeared  'relieved. But I came to fancy later  'that the, appearance was feigned' for  imy benefit. Certainly he was not con-  Ivtnoed, and in that proved himself  'possessed of an Intuition, a *���������"���������,',  mow accurate than my own,  flower-like face looked out through a  frame of Leghorn straw and pink  roses, tied snugly beneath her softly  rounded chin with the filmiest of long,  floating whit* veils. You can imagine  the picture she made, there in this  green glade, with her big blue eye3  alight with glad surprise, and the  warm blood suddenly risen in her  cheeks.  "You truant!" I crlod, In jocular reprimand. "Are you alwayo going to run  away when I visit Cragholt?"  She pouted prettily. I detest a woman who pouts, ordinarily. There is  usually such palpable affectation about  it. But Evelyn's pouting was winsome  as an infant's. Besides it was only  momentary. Then her eyes flashed and  her foot was planted very hard, for  such a tiny thing, on the green' grass  blades.  "I'm not a truant." she declared,  with feigned indignation, "and I never  thought of running away. That's just  your conceited manly Imagination.  Tou fancy that everything I do can  have but one cause, and that Is yourself. How, pray, was I to know you  Intended paying us a morning call?"  "Tut, tut," I caught her up. "What  a little spitfire we have here! If you  hadn't deserted me so shamefully last  evening, I shouldn't have minded this  morning, so much. As It is, It seems  aeons since r saw you."  Now she smiled until her dimples ,,._.,_ va* ������������*n<i������~f������nv ~������Mio*.  B���������f,-, ������.rn,_* ,��������� _._���������!.

"anddeserves a reply, [^^ cJe of my   ^^f,  world  unjust to the originals that they fairly cried out for destruction."  "But this is not one like that," she  retorted. "This seems to me a very  good portrait. I am sure Uncle Robert must have looked exactly like it,  ten years ago."  ' "Alas, we do not all see with the  same eyes," I assured her, smiling.,  "The destroyer may have looked on it  as a caricature, not having your cul-i  tured taste In art." I held it off at,  arm's length, and after, regarding It  critically for a moment between half-  closed lids, I continued, "Do you think  you could point out the identical tree  to which it was nailed?"  "I could try," was her answer.  "Is It far?"  "Not very. A mile, from here, possibly.   Over the ridge."  "Near anything in particular?"  "Near the trail which/ leads up from  the trout stream to the entrance drive  not far from the Lodge."  "When will you take me there?" I  ���������sked.  For just an instant she hesitated.  "We might go now," she replied, "if  lit weren't that I am expecting Cells  Alnslee for luncheon. Suppose we say  [five o'clock. You can meet me at the,  Lodge.  It's a short walk from there."  "FineI" I approved, thrusting the  jportralt head beneath my arm and  taking possession of both her white*  gloved bands.

Wftb a parting If fotlle admonition to  iCtmeron to "think no mora about it,"  'started on my homeward way.  Kjr rout* lay again through the min-  llatara forest, for the day bad waxed  ���������wcomfortably warm with tha approach of noon, and thtw������ waa scant  shade on the blgb-road between oar  two bouses. In the wood, however,  the air waa .gratefully cool, and I  strode on at a food pace, breathing  deeply and with enjoyment the bosky  edors which greeted me afresh at  jejrjarr step.  , The dead silence which J had re*  jmarked earlier was broken now by tba  'hoarse tooting of a steamboat whistle,  isomewbere off shore, and by the ihriWJ  iYDjces of birds, apparently In resent-  Jfal protest at this raucous Invasion of  ftbelr sylvan quiet  , ������ I bad succeeded la putting aside, for  [the moment at least, all thought of  'Cameron, bis anonymous letters, and'  .his mutilated portrait, and was dwel-  iJInf on my disappointment at not b������v*  'tag caught even so much as a glimpse  >cf Bvelyn Grayson during my mom"  jug visit to Cragholt It la true that I  had gone there with a single purpose)  ]In mind���������to convey to Cameron what,  ,1 believed to be an important theory���������'  !but underlying this, I realised now,  ,wss more than a hope, a confldenosl  even, that I should see Evelyn. I was.  itempted, indeed, to a regret that I had!  jiwt waited, visited the kennels, and;  accepted Cameron's' Invitation for1  luncheon, which would doubtless have  Insured me a few words at least with  my Goddess of Youth.  While on the verge of this self-reproach my spirits suddenly lifted, fort  tba steam whistle having died away  In the distance and the feathered!  chofarsterB have relapsed into aj  pleased chirp that merely accented)  the stillness, there broke all at oncej  ion the mute calm of the woodland the,  ���������liver sweetness of a girl's staging.  Clear and resonant It rang through tbej  forest aisles; a voice I knew beyondj  mistaking. Evelyn Grayson was com-H  Ing towards me over the scented turfJ  Still hidden by a bend In the path, the!  melody alone measured for me her approach. It was a French chanson she*  Wss lilting, a lyric of Baudelaire's, of  Which we were both fond.  Sweet music sweeps me like  the sea,  Toward my pale star,  'Whether the clouds be there or all the  ; air -ho free,  0' ��������� I sail afar.  '���������    ':   ,���������'������������������-���������������������������   ��������� '  And then she came around the turn.  At first she did not see me, for her  eyes were lifted with her voice, and I  had time to mark the fascinating  jgra.ee of her long, free stride, before  she became conscious of my presence  Jand checked and shortened it. She  {wore a frock of white serge, the  {skirt's edge at her ankles, revealing  dainty, snowy buckskin ties and just a  peep of white silk   hose.   And   her  serves praise, and not rebuke. I sacrificed myself and my pleasure for one  I love."  "Not for me, surely!"  "Did I use the word conceit a moment ago? Are you the only man I  love?"  "I hope so," I answered, impudently.  "There Is another," she confessed,  In mock tragedy. "Behold his face!"  I had not noticed that she held a  little roll in her hand, for my eyes had  been ever on hers; so, when abruptly,  she spread out and held before me the  missing head from Cameron's portrait,  I was doubly unprepared. I know I  was startled. She said afterwards  that I went very white. I suppose I  did; for with the rush of realization  came such a chain of supposition as to  drive me momentarily dizzy. For a  Becond or more I stood dumb, while  my hand went out in eager reach for  the scrap of canvas, which, I had observed, instantaneously, bore four perforations, all of a- size���������the size of a  rifle bullet. With that discovery had  recurred the shots I had heard; and  following this, came a maze of conjecture, going back to that first letter,  then to the painting's mutilation, and  on, through devious ways to the morning's target practice; and always with  one or another of Cameron's ^trusted  servants as the chief actor.  When I recovered my composure I  found Evelyn backing wilfully away  from -my covetous hand-. )  "It la the picture of the man I love,"  she was saying, teasingly. "A very,  very good man."   a  "But where did you get It?" J a*ked  seriously. ' "Do you know where it  came from?"  Suddenly she was as grave as I  could wish.  ' "I found It nailed to a tree," she answered- "Wasn't It odd? How do you  suppose It came there? It looks like  the portrait that bung In Uncle  Robert's study. Do you suppose he  grew to dislike It, and cut It up and  threw It away?"  Now I found myself In some* little  embarrassment If I was to obey  -Cameron's Injunction I could not tell  Evelyn tbe truth. Yet I was In no  position to make light of her find. On  the other hand I must learn from her  Just where she had come upon It and  so trace, if possible, the person who  had fired the shots which riddled It  "My dear girl," I said, adopting a  tone of cajolery, "we have here, I  think, a matter In which we both can  be of service���������very valuable service,  indeed, to that beloved uncle and  guardian of yours. But, you must trust  me, absolutely, and, for the present at  ���������least, you must give to him no hint of  what we have In hand. Do you understand?"  She laughed In that merry rippling  fashion which I had found not the  least of her-charms.  "Do I understand?" she repeated,  'laying a hand on my arm In emphasis  of her amused tolerance. "Do I understand? Of course I don't, and I  .shan't, until you have answered at  least a half-dozen wbys and whats."  "But you must trust me," I Insisted,  |"and as primary evidence of that trust  you will proceed at once to hand over  to me, for examination, that somewhat  |damaged piece of portraiture which  you are holding behind you."  Very wide her eyes opened in an Innocent, almost infantile stare, as she  asked:  "Do you really mean it. Philip?"  "Really," I answered, gravely. 'Td  like to tell you all about It, right here  and now, but that might spoil everything, so you must show what a strong  Womanly woman you are, by keeping  silence and waiting."  In token of compliance she gave  me the oval piece of canvas.  "I wonder who punched the holes  In It!" she remarked, ruefully. "Whoever it was, they were shockingly disrespectful."    .;  I tried to fancy what she would  have said had she known they were  bullet holes. Evidently that possibility had not occurred to her and I was  glad that it had not.  "There are two ways of looking at  it," I replied, my eyes fixed on the  canvas and Its perforations. "At first  glance it does seem spiteful; but then  there is a chance that it is not icono-  clasm, after all. It may be, you know,  just the reverse. J have not infre?  quently seen portraits that   were s������  Good-by!" I returned; releasing  [her.. "Your uncle shall have my most  {faithful concern."  The real significance of the words  S'xe, of course, did not comprehend,  at as I stood watching her until a  Itura In the path enfolded her from  imy eight, their ecbo, ringing In my  ears, impressed .me with their pregnancy.   Her uncle was evidently the  was certainly very graphic, and his  imitation of the Chinaman was histrionically artistic���������I fear the stage  missed a comedian of merit when  Romney took to lodge-keeping���������but  at the first mention of the oriental, I  had pricked my ears, and throughout  the narration my mind was busy With  .those strangely ''worded letters of  Cameron's and those still stranger  blots which looked one way like a  Chinese junk and the'other way like  a coolie In a straw helmet. The possibility of a connection, especially in  view of the rifle and the perforated  painting, seemed to me the reverse of  remote. And yet I could hardly reconcile the notion of this apparently  ignorant Mongolian being In any wise  Interested in bringing disaster upon a  person bo far removed from him in  every way as was Cameron; much  less in evolving or taking ' part in  such a crafty plot as everything we  [had thus far learned of it indicated  this to be.  My questioning of Romney shed  'very little new light on the subject.  'He had seen tbe Chinaman pass the  'Lodge on several occasions; be bad  rarely entered the grounds, however.  I tried to ascertain what his "rarely"  meant, and finally got him to say that  In the past six months, "John," as he  called him, had visited Cragholt, on  one pretext or another, possibly three  or four times. But Romney's memory  Cor dates was exceedingly feeble. He  could not recollect whether one of  those times.was on or about the  twenty-first of August He was equally at a loss concerning the fourteenth  of August and the fourteenth of September  CANADIAN   PICTORIAL  Canada's  Most  Artistic  Magazine  and   Popular  (Cuiitm.

N  ^  Four o'clock found me rapping at  tbe door of Cragholt Lodge. Considering that it was, built thirty-five  years ago by one of the Townsbury  fsmllyj vno probably read English  novels but had never been nearer to  England than Coney Island, it possessed a surprising plctaresQueness;  4ue In large part to its covering of  (dark English ivy.  I had anticipated, my appointment  ���������wUb Bvelyn by a full hour; for,!  [wished to question old Romney, the  lodge keeper; and tbe questions were  not for milady's ear.  Ho opened to me promptly, to person, tbis odd, rugged old man, "with  ,hjs seamed brow and great shock of  iron-gray hair and beard. He waa In  bis shirt sleeves, but on seeing me  be reached for his coat, which bung  on a peg beside tbe door.  ������'Never mind the coat, Romney," I  said, "don't make yourself uncomfortable on my account. It's a warm  afternoon." - \.  "It is warmish, ?slr," he assented;  but despite my protest be was thrusting his"arm into tbe coat sleeves.  "It's been an uncommon hot September.   Won't you step inside, sir?" -  He knew bis place too well to Indicate any surprise at my visit; yet \  felt be must be curious over an event  so unusual.        ;. c  "I bave an Inquiry or two to make,  IRomney," I told. Jhlm, as, accepting  bis suggestion, l stepped into bis  cosy, old-fashioned sitting room. "I  iheard *ome shooting over this way  this morning, and I've been wonder*  tog whether tbe gsme laws weren't  being broken."  He placed a cushioned rocktog-  dbalr for me, and I eat down.  "Now did you bear that, too, Mr.  Clyde?" be asked, brightening, as be  jlsaned against tbe low sill of one of  tbe daintily curtained windows.  !* Twas about ten o'clock, sir; a little  after, maybe. I was doln* a bit'of  itrimmin' on tbe hedge outside, sir,  when them same shots set me  a-tMnkin' that very thing. An' right  wway, sir, I says to myself, says I,  Tt's that Chink what just went up to  tbe bouse to borrow a rifle.*"  That Cblnkr I repeated, pussled.  Tea, sir. Yellow Chinese boy, sir.  He works for Mr. Murphy, the artist,  what has the bungalow, down on tbe  ���������bore near Cos Cob. About half an  hoar before that be comes by here on  bis way up to tbe bouse. 'What's  wsntlnT I asks. *Mlstle Mutfy/ be  ���������ays, Vantee bollow lifle, sbootee  weasel, stealee cblckee.' 'All right,' I  tsfls him, and away be goes. So���������  you see, sin when I bears tbe shots I'  Clinks right away tbat Mr. Murphy's  Chink is tryin' his "hollowed line' on  some of Mr. Cameron's pheasants,  maybe. But 15 minutes later, along  comes John again, with an innocent  grin on his face, the rifle over bia  {shoulder, and his bands empty as air.  Well, to be sure, I stops him, sir.  |Tou been sbootln' In tbe woods?' I  asks. 'No ehootee,' be grins back.  *Me no shootee.' Then, sir, I swears  at him,, good and hearty, and calls  him what he is. But all be can say.  Is, 'No lie; me no shootee.' Then I  Usks him if be didn't hear a gun-go;  off. 'Gun?' he says, as if he didn't  know what gun meant. 'Line,' I explains. "Yes, yes,' Bays he, *me hear  lifle shootee. Not my line.' "Whose  lifler I asks him. 'Man with lifle,  tap load,' he says, pointing back. An'  that was all I could get out of him,  ���������Ir." ���������: .  I should have been amused, I suppose, by old Romney's recital.

SCOTT EATON, B. A.. PRINCIPAL  WINTER TERM OPENS MONDAY, JAN. $MU  SCATTERED ISRAEL  He failed!   If so, the pulpits should be, cleared  of the preachers. '  .  Let us look closely at the words ojf Scripture:  "For thus saith the Lord, David shall never want  a man to Bit upon the THRONE OP THE HOUSE  OF ISRAEL."   And the Lord is so determined  that His promise shall have Divine emphasis that  He adds the words: "If ye can break my covenant with the day, and my covenant with the  night, and that there should not be day and night  in their season, then may also my covenant be  broken with David, My servant."  Now it is clear as the noonday sun that if Israel  be not officially collected in a representative sense,  according to Mr. Bulkeley's statements, so as to  be a nation and to have a throne-seat for a King,  there is no such nation, no such throne, and no  such King. If this be the true state of affairs, the  Lord God of many promises has fallen down badly in one of the most important, and most easily  understood of all His promises. If Israel be not  a nation today, and be not NOW ruled over by  the blood successor of David, the Word" of God is  not reliable.  God's covenant^ with day and night stands, and  .be sure His promises to David stand too.   If so,  then there is a powerful, a mighty, a world-wide  nation at this hour, and it is ruled by a King from  David's loins.  Now I come to,another point in Mr. Bulkeley's  letter. This is the part which contains the greatest surprise. Let me quote again from his article:  "That the TRIBES are still scattered throughout  the whole known world, admits of no contradiction ; they both thrive and, on the other hand, are  still ^persecuted; but since they relinquished the  pimple pastoral life when they lived so near to the  presence of Jehovah, and in captivity became impregnated with commercial enterprises, the more'  influential among them have become the merchant  (Continuedfrom Page2) ,     - \ f       ' "    ';,'    ,!"..���������  princes of the earth; and were treated o&lita amine  plane as the Christian .nations, their dogged'pertinacity pushes them to the forefront, and JEWISH DISABILITIES BEING REMOVED THET  RISE TO POSITIONS OP THE VERY HIGHEST  IMPORTANCE."        . >     ?, ,   . \'  r , t,; -'���������v> A\  v- '*y:y  ,       ^      V t"     -  '   *       J  'J  c f  This long quotation shows that Mr. Bulkeley  is writing and thinking-of the Jews; and not of  the Tribes of the HOUSE OF ISRAEL. As a matter of-fact, -he is thinking and writing of, one;  Tribe, and not of the other eleven, .which form  the dominant house, the HOUSE OF ISRAEL. It  is hard to imagine any learned man writing "that  the Tribes are still scattered"; and'at the very  moment of writing, he is thinking and writing of  THE TRIBE OF JUDAH, when he is making an-  swer to me in my remarks concerning /THE  HOUSE OF ISRAEL, which excludes of iisoesafty  the Tribe and the House of Judah.       ���������  The Tribe of Judah is "scattered," as Mr.  Bulkeley says, but he does not appear to .imagine  that the other tribes, forming the House of Israel, are NOW,ruled by a Davidic King, even  though God says it is so.      - >  Furthermore, any reader can look at the Book  of Jeremiah,/chapter 33>: 17, and see what the  Almighty says on this topic. And let the reader  bear in mind God is making this marvellous, this  unconditional -promise, to the House of Israel, already in exile over one hundred years. He sent  word to them in exile and told them the wonderful things He intended for them in future times/ '  One of the most hurtful things in the interpretation of the scriptures is the confounding of  ISRAEL with JUDAH. One would be just as correct in calling Britain Germany, as to call Judah  the House of Israel; or to speak of "The Tribes*'  as Judah, or the Jews.  ''       '  (Prof. E. Odium, MjL, B.Sc.)
