Whatever fosters the development  >f strong moral qualities in our people tends to  [vigor, long life, happiness, stability and prosperity/; The cleaning up of Seattle has thrown hundreds of vile and worthless men and women into  [Vancouver, much to our injury and shame.   To  [offset this we should double our diligence.    Of  [evils, the Social Evil is the most to be feared.  I Against it the pulpits should create a vigorous,  i healthy sentiment, the police force should use; all  [resources to uproot and utterly destroy.   Its pres-  rence is a menace to health, virtue and domestic  security.  Ml PUY  Vancouver's Officials Renovators of Public Morals  The Briton's constitutional love of "fair play"  calls for the facts re our city officials and their  attitude toward the social evil. Dr. Spencer's  "open letter" in The World, and the Western Call  recently, was a vigorous and fearless arraignment  of Mayor Findlay and the Police Commissioners.  'If conditions are as bad as described therein,  then public sentiment should be aroused and all  forces marshalled against this most accursed and  dangerous enemy of our city and country. Silence  would be indefensible and would argue either  criminal indifference to social conditions or dis-'  honorable complicity in an abominable traffic in  virtue. But too much can be said, or the truth  , be told in a wrong way for best results. The other  I side should be heard and facts should be published  in sueh a way as not to attract undesirables to  Vancouver as a retreat for vicious men and wo-  [men.  Ministers of the Gospel are able exponents of  [the truth and unyielding friends of the things that  make a city truly great.   Their counsels have been  [courted by the wise in all lands nor can they be  [dispensed with, nevertheless the clergy, as a body,  ire genarlly impracticable in the application of  truth for the correction of popular evils that flourish under modern civilization.    They necessarily  Diave the ideal in mind as an objective.   To have  )ess would reduce their pulpit power and lower  the moraljone of the world.   They "fall down"  kvhen they expect their ideal to be at once realized  py a whole city or country.   The real conditions  ire so far from the clergyman's ideal that he is  infitted to dispassionately discuss the matter or to  fcorreet the evil.   His work is indispensable, but  |iis methods applied are often inadequate.   Public  )fficiahs are not all imbeciles nor are they moral  towards.   Not infrequently they are the peers of  linisters in education, moral integrity and devotion to the best interests of society.  In a recent interview with Mayor Findlay and  ?hief Chamberlain, the writer ascertained many  facts related to the cleaning up of Vancouver,  ^hus far in 1912 much has been done and larger  things are planned.   To reach the greatest possible  results some secrecy is necessary.    Plans megaphoned would invite defeat and failure.

Several things must strike  an average observer. The people are full of optimism. They have faith in themselves and in their  country. They are planning to do great things.  The public-spirited portion of each city is indeed  very large. The very qualities of the business  houses and other buildings indicate that the citizens are moved to their daily undertakings by a  spirit of enterprise. And this spirit is seizing the  population of Canada, perhaps as no other people  on earth have been affected in the past.  British Columbia  On arrival in this wonderful province, one is at. ^  once possessed of a notion of vastness and varied  wealth, beyond what he can discover in any of  the other splendid Canadian provinces. Our own  people are as yet unable to fully take in the situation. In truth, our present grasp of the near  future is but a pigmy compared with a huge giant.  And in British Columbia we can surely begin  to see that the City of Vancouver concentrates *-*������������������������  and conserves more chances for wealth, influence,  power, opportunity, and individual success than  any other part of this wonderful province. Once  again, I must say that all those who may be in  temporary doubt, and who may be somewhat  driven by circumstances of a sort not favorable,  should hold firm to hope and faith in final success.  -r:H--  Right.

Tbe Carthaginians were the first  people to makes systematic practice of  road-building, but no nation derived  so many various benents as that of  Rome.

In their report, the judges mention  the thoroughness with which the chil-  try.  The attendance to  the rural meeting place Is diminishing; the attend-  dren treated the subject, and instance ance to the school house is dwindling;  the stress the children placed upont friendship'is being severed with the  the social aspect. Canada, perhaps  unconsciously, is striving for a higher  moral plane, and the children recognize the factor that Good Roads would  be In this. The boy of today Is the  man-of tomorrow. Because of thia  study of the question In their youth,  they will have a truer, clearer knowledge of conditions than could otherwise have been the case, and the result ot their study In 1912 will make  for tne benefit and the betterment of  tbelr communities ten or twenty years  hence.

Twenty-eight essays were received from Vancouver.  Simultaneously with the movement for the need  ot good roads artees one far-reaching  idea, even more profound than the  enhancing of land values. It is the  social betterment by which Canada is  playing a distinguished part in the uplift of the world.  Now we turn to the meaning of  roads in the economic sphere. Is It a  good business policy? Canada's manufacturers, men of commerce and business admit tbat Canada needs such a  policy, but because they cannot see any  solid, unrestricted and available gain  that would accrue, tbey, don't care.  The cost of a breakfast roll would be  trifling did tt not cost the farmer eighteen cents a bushel more to transport  wheat nine miles to a railway station  than It did from Slew York to Liverpool, a distance of three thousand one  hundred miles. The cost of a boiled  egg is the payment of transportation  from the lien to the household. The  intrinsic value Of the egg is a mere  trifle compared with the expense of  carriage through two feet of mud.  Over the deep-rutted roads, as they  exist at present, farmer1 can haul, on  aa average, six hundred pounds in  'five hours with two horses. If good  roads were constructed, however, it  has been calculated that one horse  could draw twelve hundred pounds and  more in two hours. Not only would  the farmer save time, conserve his energies, make better use of his vehicle  and horses and thereby save money,  but "the consumer, too, would receive  his needs at lower prices. And as  Canada's agricultural production is an-,  nually increasing by leaps and bounds,  a greater proportion of money would  be saved by all classes of people year  by year; and, probably, the high cost  of living in the urban districts would  recede to the normal..  "It costs the average Canadian farmer two dollars a ton "to haul bis produce to the market town, to the railway  station or lake port. It is known that  the production of field crops alone  amounts to about 40,000,000 tons a  year. It would be moderate to estimate that 25,000,000 of this tonnage  is hauled over roads, one way or, another; so we have $50,000,000 as cost  of teaming field crops by the farmers.  This cost-could be reduced if we  had first-class roads, to $20,000,000, a  saving of 60 per cent, leaving $30,000,-  000 as a saving on one class of product  alone."  The building of good roads would  increase the value of taxable lands not  only in the vicinity, but also in the  most remote parts. Stupendous  amounts could be collected in taxes  and the assets of the.nation as well  as the landlord would increase. NeW  towns would spring up; new railway  branches would be.built; and Canada  would be settled and developed at a  miraculous rate.  Our convicts could be. profitably employed building roads. Of course, it is  useless to have them constructed unlets carried-on in a systematic and  scientific way. The roads must be  "graded, topped and rolled." They  should be constructed so tlfat water  will quickly drain oft and so that the  greatest applied pressure will not force  upon the foundation and cause mud to  ooze up and ruts to be renewed.  ^*wii**ciaimc^  tonee by reducing the time of travel.  They would give rise to a further exploration of sparselw settled districts  aad would result In the discovery and  shipping of more mineral and timber  wealth.  I feel confident that smooth, hard  roads would mean more to Canada  than any other project. I believe that  a remarkable awakening, a renaissance  would take place. The economic and  national advantages that would ensue  are Incalculable. The energetic settlement and development of Canada  would swell tbe treasury and the country would enjoy an era of prosperity  unequalled In Its history. Good, roads  In Canada would mean a higher standard of citizenship; a people pervaded  by education and good morals; and  a better understanding and a mutual  sympathy between the diverse peoples in the Dominion.

About half an hour later the guests at  the hotel were startled to hear a crash  in the baflk next door.  Th|nklnT the noise was caused by  robbers they called two detectives to  the rescue.

Fortune to the Point Grey council last  Tuesday night  To reduce the amount of water used,  Councillor Richardson advocated that  the use of lawn sprinklers be forbidden  and that any violation of this be punishable by fine. , Reeves Harvey was  doubtful whether such an action would  be legal.

DRAGGED TO DEATH BY  PARTNER IN A BOAT  One of Victims Well Known Resident  in Mt. Pleasant ~  Martin Nash, a resident of Mt  Pleasant, was dragged under water  by Herve LaBIanc near Powell River  on Tuesday, April 11, ,and both men  were drowned before help was secured-  The accident was watched from the  shore by Mrs. Nash.  ��������� Nash and LaBIanc with the former's  little son had only left the shore when  their canoe upset Nash caught his  son and held him till the canoe was  righted and then threw him in. La-  Blanc then lost his head and grappled  with Nosh and eventually drew him  under.  'The lake Is very deep and all efforts  to recover the bodies have so far been  fruitless. Nash leaves two small children as well as bis wife and the lad  who had such a narrow escape from  death. He had lived in Vancouver for  a long time and is a cousin of Rev.  Father Madden of the Church of Our  Lady of the Holy Rosary. The Nash  home is on Fourteenth avenue. Mount  Pleasant It is said that Le Blanc's  nervqusness caused the upset He had  recently loot two brothers by drowning and was much afraid of the water.  He leaves a wife and five children in  Restlgouche. Que.  Those people who have fondly believed that woman suffrage would  prove a panacea for most publie ills  and would bring in the mlllenium di-  rctly; hav been given another severe  jolt There waa an election at Pasadena, Cal., a few days ago, to determine whether that fair city should be  "wet" or "dry" for the next year. Now,  Adoiphus Buscbr, the millionaire brewer of St. Louis, has a palatial winter  home at Pasadena, with magnificent  grounds, "sunken gardens," and all  that, on which he expends $65,000 a  year to maintain, and which he gen?  erously throws open to the public and'  tourists, that they might realise how  much money he has made out of tha  brewery business. Well, In order to  give Pasadena voters a "tip," Mr.  Busch took pains to have it announced;  that If the city went "dry" he would  remove his residence to Santa Monica and close his grounds to the public  immediately. "I did not make known  Mr. Busch's intention because of the  probable effect on the campaign," said  Mr. Busch's agent delicately. "We  wanted to be fair, and did hot wish to  appear as trying to influence the election. But Mr. Busch felt that if the  prohibitionists won and he waa deprived of the right to entertain his  friends in his own home ln his own  Way he would not care to consider  Pasadena longer as one of his .residence places." That wao surely broad  hint enough; and one might have expected the newly enfranchised women  to take it. They did; but not in the  way you Christian folks would suppose;' 'According to a special diapatch  fn the Chicago Record-Herald the women voters of Pasadena "flocked to the  polls and cast most of their strength  for the granting of hotel and restaur*  ont licenses hencforth" and the dispatch gives as the reason for their activity, Mr. Busch's Uttle threat And  so Pasadena went "wet" and retains  Mr. Busch, his sunken gardens and his  pleasant hospitality.

The portion of Granville street that  is being torn up to be relaid is the five  blocks between Robson and Pacific  streets. In order to allow that work to  be done in the shortest space of time  possible the Fairview, Kitsilano, and  Fourth avenue cars are being sent  around by way of the Richards street  extension to Pacific street, when they  turn onto the new Granville street  bridge again.

"Stanley Park is a natural 'Beauty  Spot' and yet its beauty was enhanced  this afternoon by living flowers that  decked its green sward.

Full of animation, bubbling over with delight,  about one hundred and fifty children  in number did justice to tbe appetizing  and abundant viands at the open air  meal, and the ice cream galore which  followed. In fact, several tiny boys  seemed as If tbey had reached their  heaven. Then the games, races , etc.  If those tiny tots run the race of life  as well, they will make. good. The genial superintendents and teachers were  Indefatigable in their efforts to give  joy and pleasure to the children | and  they certainly succeeded, for a- happier  bunch of youngsters than those1 who  hoarded tbe cars this evening it would  be difficult to find.

F. S. H.  PAVING ON MAIN STREET. '  The paving of Main Street, from  Eighteenth Ave. to Twenty-fifth Ave.  on the east side of the street has been  recommended to the Board of Works,  by the City Engineer. This is an improvement which has been sought by  property owners of Mount Pleasant  and D. L. 301 for two years. It is understood that South Vancouver will, as  soon as possible, pave the whole street  from Sixteenth to Eighteenth, and the  western half from Eighteenth to Twenty-fifth.  The fact that this improvement work  has been recommended by tbe City  Engineer does not mean that the work  will necessarily be proceeded with at  once, or even this year; as local improvements to date have practically  exhausted the city's borrowing power.  It is said, however, that an attempt  will be made to have this work proceeded with this year it possible. The  estimated cost of the city's portion,  which will be 28 feet wide, will be  $42,628.  ���������|iitiilii-ii|.l|i.t..*.il,i*.il..l..*..*..l.,|���������*.,|.������,;,.|..|,.;,.*.<.,i.

Only 27 places reported an  acreage of wheat curtailed by the wet  weather, and the percentages were  Bmall, running as low ob 3 per cent,  and as high as 25 per cent., in a single instance. Nearly every farmer  reports his intention to rotate his crops  and from Alberta and Saskatchewan  the reports show excellent condition  of wheat that was disced in on stubble.

British Columbia Plans to Hava 100  Lineal Feet of Dry-Farmed Products  and Timber Specimens at Letnbrldaa  Lethbrldge, Alta, June ���������.���������The provincial display of British Columbia will  be one of the most attractive features  of the big Dry-Farmed products Exposition here next October, reservation  having been made by Deputy-Minister  of Finance and Agriculture W. E.  Scott for 100 lineal feet apace and a  depth of at least SO feet.  Writing Chairman J. W. McNicol of  the Exposition Committee, Mr. Scott  says that it Is planned to bring to  duced on farms and factories in the  United States during the census year  1909, according to a statement issued  by the census bureau. The Quality  produced on farms was 966,001,000  pounds, valued at $255,544,000. Factories produced 624,765,000 pounds, val  ued at $179,510,000. Butter manufactured by farmers' co-operative creameries is included in the figures for fac-  toris. _ Among the states Wiscosin  ranked first in total production, with  131,049,000 pounds, valued at $36,628,-  000. It was first also with 103,885,000  pounds, valued at $29,547,000 produced  in factories. The difference between  the figures given, which is 27,165,000  pounds, valued at $7,081,000, represnts  Wisconsin's farm production. In total  production Iowa ranked second, Minnesota third, Pennsylvania fourth,  Michigan fifth, Ohio sixth, Illinois seventh, New York eighth, Texas ninth,  and Indiana tenth. Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois and Indiana showed a much greater farm production output and ranked in the order  written. Minnesota, Iowa, and New  York, in the order named, ranked after  Wisconsin in showing a factory pro*  duction much larger than credited to  their farms.  THINNING TREEFRUIT8  (R. M. WInslow, B.S.A., Provincial  Horticulturist)  The very favorable weather which  has occurred throughout the blooming  season In all the fruit districts of the  Province has favored the setting of a  very large percentage of the blossoms.  There are very few trees which will  not have all the fruit they can carry,  and probably the majority of them will  hae more than they can carry with  profit. This brines ap the question of  time. On plums and peaches in moist  regions, fruits thinned so that no two  lowers the percentage of low-grade  fruit  (7) Thinning prevents premature  dropping. A familiar instance 1b that  of the Mcintosh Red, which is especially liable to drop where-two fruits  are left on one spur. Premature dropping is quite largely due to the inability of the tree to supply moisture to  an excessive crop.  (8) The load of fruit Is more evenly  distributed, and this is a very Important feature in preventing the breaking down of trees.  (9) The coBt of picking is reduced  considerably and the labor of picking  is divided more evenly over the season. This is an important advantage  where the supply of labor is deficient  in picking-time. Costs of grading and  packing are also much lessened.  (10)' Less fertility is removed from  the soil. A ton of apples takes out  approximately 1.2 lb. of nitrogen 1.6 lb,  of potash, and 0.6 lb,  acid. A ton of pears removes, the same  amount of nitrogen and about twice as  much of the other elements. The  seeds take the great bulk of these  amounts, the pulp of the fruit taking  but a small portion. As the number of  seeds is roughly in proportion to the  number of apples, and not to their size,  the removal of frul tlseaves a much  greater supply of plant-food for the  balance of the crop, for the growth of  the trees, and ln the soli.  (11) The tree is less liable to winter Injury. The ripening of the heavy  crop drains the vitality of the tree,  so leaving It in poor shape to withstand the winter. Trees bearing moderate crops for which there is an adequate supply of plant food and an  adequate supply ot moisture have sufficient vitality to ripen the crop, and  to ripen the fruit-buds and new shoots  as well.  (12) One of the most important results of thinning Is that the trees will  bear a larger and more uniform crop  touch when fully grown are much  freer of brown-rot.  (6) The removal of misshapen.fruit  the following year. The tendency towards biennial bearing is materially  reduced, much depending in this, however, on the variety.  For various reasons, then, thinning  helps materially to secure the maximum duty from the tree.  N. B.���������Balance of this circular will  appear next week.

Hew Much Fruit Should a Trot tear?  In discussing tbe question of thinning, we admit that a tree may. set  more fruit than tt can possibly bring  to perfection. Nature cares nothing  for the fruit except aa aa aid to produce seed; the orchardist cares  nothing for seeds except as tbey are  necessary to the production bl fruit.  We wish each tree to carry all the  fruit it can bring to commercial perfection, and ao more.  At the same time, the tree must  make new vegetative growth consistent with its age and the variety.  The third requisite is that It should  also form enough fruit-spurs for a  similar crop the following year. This  ideal is tbe foundation of our orchard  practice.  When a tree is fulfilling these three  requirements it is performing its maximum duty to the owner.- If It falls  short in any one of them, he Is not  getting his maximum ot profit, either  immediate or prospective, from it.  How Does Thinning Help?  The removal of some of the fruit at  an early stage in its growth helps  materially towards securing the maximum duty of the tree in certain definite ways:���������  (1) The average size of the fruit  left on the trees is increased; this is  the most obvious result of thinning.  Trees overburdened with fruit produce  a greater percentage of No. 2 apples.  The increase in size of the remainder,  after the first or second pickings of  Barlett pears is made, is a striking  instance of the increase in size when  the number of fruits is reduced.  (2) The fruit borne is more uniform  in size and shape. On the overloaded  tree there is much variation in size,  and, especially where two or more  fruits remain on a spur, they are variable in shape as well. The fruits from  the side-blossome of the cluster are  in many varieties much different from  those from the centre blossom, usually being flatter in shape and having a  considerably longer stem. Uniformity  in size and shape is an important essential of commercial perfection.  (3) The color is materially bettered, more uniform, and comes earlier. The remarkable increase in color  which occurs when a first picking is  made from heavily bearing trees of  even the winter varieties, sueh as Jon-  a than and Wagener, furnishes striking confirmation of this point. While  color seems largely related to sunshine, it is a well known fact that on  a heavily loaded tree the fruit has less  color, which is less evenly distributed  and more slowly acquired.  (4) Thinning improves the quality.  This is especially the case where the  soil is deficient in moisture or plant-  food.  (5) The tree Is freer of diseases  and insect pests, because wormy apples, limb-bruised or diseased fruit of  any kind, can be removed at thinning-  ARE YOU INTERESTED IN B.C.METHODISM?

Mrs. Martlndale finally found the article and read it
"Weil, i declare!" woo aer comment.
"What shall 1 doY" cried the daughter. "Dick has forgotten me entirely
I don't know bur that be bad a wife

he's a bigamist, and I'm���oh. heavens!"
"It's not likely thnt be was married
before lie was eighteen,** was tbe encouraging remark.
"But Just think, be doesn't remember
me! He doesn't love me! I'm nothing
more to him than a woman be bus never seen!"
It waa certainly a distressing situation.
Mrs. Martlndale considered the matter for some time; but, tbe case being a
hovel one. she concluded to send for
tbe family attorney, Mr. Btelger. and.
If possible, leant from bim her daughter's matrimonial status. A telephone
message brought tbe lawyer, and mother and daughter, both talking at once,
put the case to bim. Having an ear for
each, be finally learned the story.
"Since yon married a man by the
name of Ludingion. who was not Lnd-
ington at al', bHt Throckmorton, it Is
my opinion tbat yoa are not married to
either Ludlngtoh or Throckmorton."
"Heavens!" cried the poor woman,
covering her face wltb ber hands.
"The only way. the best way. for yon
to do is to marry tbe man as Throckmorton."
"But suppose he doesn't want me."
moaned Maud.
The lawyer and Mrs. Martlndale look
��d at each other.    Here was a danger.
"He   will   undoubtedly   he   ready   to
make any reparation possible"��� the at
torney was beginning when Mrs.  Lud

"Ueparatioii: Wbo wants reparation'

"You might win him again," suggested Mr. Kteiger.
"The very thing*" exclaimed Mrs.
Martindnte. "I wonder bow we bad
better proceed."
"I have It!" tbe lawyer chimed In.
"When Mr. Throckmorton returns"���
"I don't wont to bo Mrs. Throckmor
ton." Maud urn*.** in. "imm t :.&<- u.i

"Anyway." continued Stelger. "when
be returns I'll take bim in charge. I'll
tell hiui that be must remarry Maud
Martlndale. Meanwhile be can be introduced to yon as somebody else, and
you can win blm."
"Maybe 1 cant!"
"Ob. yes you can." sold tbe "mother.
"You've done It once; you can do it
again "
"But be Isn't tbe same man. He
may not fancy the same woman as be
did when be waa Dick." sobbed Maud.
"Well, we'll try it. dear. Now. don't
cry any more.- Leave the matter in
Mr. Stelger's hands, and it will come
out ail right"
It was arranged that Mr. 8telger
ahould go to i**'tw York and bring
back Mr. Throckmorton Ludiugton before be should become enamored of
any other woman, and upon his arrival Maud was to "be put In bis way

Which be had. lived far nearly o dozen

Stelger's bouse. Maud was tbere,
purporting to be Mrs, Btelger'e younger sister.
. At' a consultation tt was decided
to take the middle aged youngster to
tbe country and shot bim up wltb no
other woman under middle age except
bis wife. This was the suggestion of
Mrs. Martlndale wben alone with Mr.
Stelger. -
"1 nave always heard." she said,
"and I believe It to be true, tbat if a
man lives under tne same roof wltb
a woman: win* is one degree removed
from a gorgon she <-au get blm."
So Mr. Throckmorton was taken to
a country piece where there was no
other house within several miles, with
Maud as bis only companion and Mrs.
Martlndale for chaperon. In tbe hope
tbat the former supposed husband and
wife might become one. The object
was'to keep blm away from young
girls, wbo were the only barrier between bim and Maud. Youngsters under twenty are prone, to fall in love
with older women, provided-the latter
hove not reached i he age ot gray hair
and wrinkles. - Hick, or rather, Tom,
which was bis real name, wao pleased

on tufa and other altailar octaskma
when young people snubbed* him. aad
it was not long before be became need
to pouring an bis troubles info bar ear.
When Mrs. -Alartlndala. wba waa
managing the affair, thought the tftao
ripe she hit ��iH>n an expedient to
clinch it. Sbt bunted the eouatry for

Mrs. Martlndale announced to Dick tbat

"Ooodby." aald Mntid wltb a sob.
"1 don't think 1 shall want to go

"Oh. yes, yoo will. You'll forget all

Mrs. Martlndale interrupted this tender scene and took the lamb to the

room where he bad left Maud, be
threw himself Into ber arms, crying:
The next and last feature In this little comedy was the fourth act. which

Mr. 8teiger was called In. and there
was another conference. The question
was how to make known to T,om tbe
plot tbat bud been laid to bring him

relieved tbem both of the duty by taking it upon herself-that is. she waited
for Tom to give her an opportunity.
The meeting of the terrible creature

years .to his maturity. After a debate

Tbe old home week committee met
In Kli Pepper's little grocery store oo
the nlgbt before the celebration was
to begin. As chairman ot tbe committee Ell bad presided despotically
over bis fellow townsmen, and It was
with something very like relief tbat
tbe committee contempluted the dawning of tbe celebration, for tbat meant
the beginning of tbe end of Ell's self
Imposed tyranny.
Kli Pepper bad been tbe leading spirit In tbe old borne week project He
It was wbo bad slyly planted tbe germ
of the,[Idea in tbe bends of bis neigh*
bors. He bad talked loudly of the
dollars that would roll Into the coffers
of the merchants, of the free advertising that tbelr village would receive,
of waste land that would be sold to
admiring visitors dnce they bad set
foot on the picturesque environs of
Blue Mills. .
All the'arrangements were concluded now. Subcommittees of every sort
had; Heen appointed until there remained1'not one respectable citizen of
Blue Mills wbo was not serving in
some capacity. Diplomacy required
this, and Ell Pepper possessed diplomacy, but his cupidity was greater
and ia��the end proved bis downfall.
EH Pepper as chairman of the committee assumed charge of all tbe arrangements-biting a band from Mill-
ton. oEgaoJzIuff a parade of prominent
citizens (with Ell Pepper In the lead,
of course), getting up a program of
field sports, tub races, greased pole
contests, etc.���until, some auspicious
party hinted that this sudden exhibition of executive ability on the part
of ETf Pepper could have been produced only after months of deep scheming. When tbey realized this fact
the members of the committee waxed
bitter,'and dissension stalked In tbelr
mUot, The factNbat Eli Pepper had
obtained tiie agency for a Millton firm
of decorators and every blue Minolta
wbo did not own fiags or bunting was
compelled to employ Ell Pepper to
decorate his store front was an added
grievance. Indeed, it might have been
said that this fact was the last straw
that broke their camel's back of patience '
And so on this warm July evening
the old home week committee met
for the last time In Ell Pepper's grocery store. All enthusiasm In tbe project had died out. and there was even
animosity displayed because they had
been stirred from their rut of summer
somnolence ^.
"I guess t lint's about nil," declared
Ell Pepper trotn his sent on the counter. "Everything is ready now. and If
tbe gentlemen of tbe reception committee will be at tbe station to meet
Congressman Kelzer tomorrow morn
"What train?" Interrupted one of the
gentlemen aforesaid In a sullen tone.
"Ten-fifty-two." said Ell In a displeased tone. "Of course I don't reckon you know anything about parliamentary rulings. Jake Fleming, but
you didn't ougbter interrupt me tbat
"I don't wanter know anything about
parliamentary rules." was Mr. Fleming's disdainful retort. "This here is
:i free country, and you can't come any
Kngllsb political talk over me. Eli'Pepper'. I'm a plain American citizen. I
am. and I won't be drove by no English sympathizer! You put down con-
gres.sion.il rules and I'll be the fust
(lino to live up to 'em If I 'prove of
"Jake's right. Eli." remarked Wll-
lam BoHIng heavily. "You didn't
���nigbter set up any fnrrin ideas In any
��� it our deads There's another genera-
Win ������otnhia up. arid you best not inter-
���hTf with their- iheir rights as citizens

���round for approval and was gratified
><��� several smiling nods.
"You've stirred ui�� trouble." grumbled
Henry Staples from his seat on the
doorstep. -[:x '.y-
���Stirred up trouble!" ejaculated the
astonished Mr. Pepper, kicking his heels
excitedly against the counter. "Why.
If it hadn't been for me there wouldo't
bave been qo old home week!"
"That's wbat ^mean." returned Hen
ry Staples sourly, and he arose and
went away.
- Silently tbe other members of tbe
cpmndttee followed bis example until
at last Ell Pepper was left alone In hla
store staring tn chagrin at the last de*
partlng^sloiicblng form.
"Great Heck! I'd like to know what's
come Into tbem fellows!" be mattered
as be pried up tbe top of the pickle keg.
wbicb be bad securely nailed before the
committee meeting. "I s'pose they're
Jealous because I've had ginger enough
to scrape a little commission here and
there. They'll forget all about It to*
tnorrer when Congressman Keller gets
here and all the crowd."
Where tbe crowd waa coming from
Eli Pepper bad not calculated. He bad
announced, that a crowd wotalo be
there, and be bad expected tbat neigh*
boring- villages would booten forth to
participate In Blue Mllla' old homo
week celebration and spend their dollars in tbat enterprising community.
That these villages tnlgbt be as somnolent as Blue Mllla desired to be. tt
it bad not been for EH Pepper, be did
not consider.
He whistled cheerfully ns be bustled
about his store prying ap the can*
tJously tatteaed covers ot cracker box*
es, cheese case, prune boxes and so
forth, until the long room waa tkllli
ready for business In the morning.
Many eyes watched Kli Pepper that
nlgbt as be went about the closing of
bis'store. Tbey saw blm''open the
closed boxes that should have offered
refreshments. They saw him coma
outside and put up all the wooden
shutters tbat securely closed his win*
dows against Intrusion. These were
barred outside and in and went all
around tbe long low wooden building
even to tbe part that bachelor Ell used
aa living apartments. In the bedroom
shutters, were circular boles cut to admit air at nlgbt Otherwise tbe place
was as securely shattered and barred
as If it were a bank instead of a grocery store. ��� y :':
At last Ell went within, aad tbe out*
side wooden door was closed behind
hltn, and tbe faint penclle of light that
ahone through chinks in tne ahuttaro
disappeared. It wao tw quiet around
the corner stove that tbey could bear
I'M winding bio alarm crock to the bed*
room and thefjca-jld see two round
yellow globes of llfbt on tne gronnd
where tie lamplight abot through tbe
holes In hi* shutter. Then tbe yellow
global died oat and all waa atni.
it w��i not until Bit Pepper gs^o
veat to regular orchestral announcement that be was deep In slumber tbat
the lurWuf members of tna old noma
week committee put their plant lo operation, Henry Staples put tna altua
tjoo rudely:
"He's iDortog to beat tbe< band now,*"
be whispered (to blscompanlona. "Come
op now."
Stealthily tbey went, bearing the
heavy iron bars that belonged to the
wooden inuttered lockup on the hill*
side, ("ulttly tbey removed ��11'* wood*
en bars and replaced them with tbe
Iron ones, and when the Iron bars gave
opt they pieced ��ut the shutters with
crowbar*, and in the front of the store
tbey boldly nailed the shutters fast
The front and back doors were treated
likewise, and wben tbey had finished
|BI1 Pepper, chairman of tbe old home
week committee and leading spirit of
tbe village of Blue Mills, was as securely locked up as If be bad been In
the lockup on tbe hillside.
"It's a good thing there's plenty to
eat In tbere and tbat Ell's used to getting bis own meals." chuckled Henry
8taples a* tbey stole away.
"He's got everything to make blm
happy." granted William Boiling. "He
won't bare to nail up no pickle barrels or cracker boxes for a week."
"We en a look in tbe winder every
nlgbt after he's in bed nnd see If he's
well." added lake Fleming, subduing
any uneasiness be might bave felt.
"Did you get tbat sign ou tbe door
all right'/" asked Wlllium Boiling.
"Of course!" snapped Staples. "It
says that 'Eli Pepper is suddenly call*
ed away and won't return till nfter
old borne week Is over.' I dropped s
note through the bole ln the shutter
telling bim he was to stay there while
we run tbls old borne week business.
1 guess be'll not try to push himself
as a leading citizen after tbls."
"1 expect be'll bave the law on aa,"*
remarked William Boiling heavily.
"He don't know who done It," retorted bia companions.
The next day Congressman Kelzer
delivered an oration to the people of
Blue .Milk They listened tolerently
to bis discourse, and when he had departed tbey told each other they'd
much rather hear the minister talk.
They paraded the village streets to
the admiration of their own kin. for
no outsiders braved the Insufferable
heat to come forth and spend tbelr
money in Blue Mills. At tbe end of
three days all attempt at a celebration had died out. and tbe merchants
took down tbeii decorations and resumed their accustomed seats on their
Then tbey prudently set about to release Eii Pepper from his enforced seclusion.
"I'll have the law on ye!" be shouted
furiously at his lilierators.
William Boiling stepped forward
"You shet up. Eil Pepper, or we'll
have the law on you for a malcontent
���and dangerous to the peace and happiness of this here village."
Thus Blue   Mills  planted   ber  foot
heavily on the Iconoclastic rale of Eli
Pepper and  went  back to the oont-
���' uolent content of ber quiet days.
