, The next morning nt eight o'clock
p sent u note to Miss Pat, asking if she
and tho other ladles of her house
would not take breakfast with mo at
Initio; anil she replied, on her quaint
tvlHltlug caul, in an old-fashioned hand,
(that hIki and Helen would ho glad to

in 1 ii il from the tlrst to ask them to
dine at Oleuarm, and now I wished
to von this girl, to tout, weigh, study

meeting with Gillespie. I wished lo
boo how she would bear hoi self before
.her aunt and me with that dark trans
act Ion on her conscience,

experience, the most dlllicult meal of
the day. and yet that hour hangs in
memory still as one of the brightest I
.ovor spent. The table was set on tho
Jtcirace, and its while napery, tho best
filenarm silver and crystal, and a bowl
of nd roses still dewy from the night,
nil blended coolly with the morning.
As tho st i a wherries were passed I felt

together In a now Intimacy. It was de
lightful to sit fnco to face with Miss

11 sought sbamu in their depths. Miss
ll'at poured the coffee, and when I
(took my cup I felt that it can led
Ihonetllctlon with It. I was glad to
'mio her so at pence wllh the world,
and her heurt was not older, I could
have sworn, than the roses beforo her.
"I slmll refuse to leave when my
'time Is up!" uho declared. "Do jou

"It would be perfectly splendid to

Helen stood by the Hue of scarlet

at a point whence the best view of tho
lake was obtainable her hands
clasped behind her, her head turned
"Thoio Is no ono quite like her!"
exclaimed Miss Pat.
"She Is beautiful!" I acquiesced.

"And wo are going to send some let

"Yes; and I should like a paper of

a little, a very little eagerness in her
"Certainly. The stable Is at your

"Hut we must see the Olenarm pic

went nt once Into the grent cool house,
coming at last to the gallery on the

delight befoie the famous "Lady in

returned to the Whistler and studied

enjoying her pleasure. Helen had

"How beautifully those draperies

Hut Helen was not beside her, as
she had thought. There were several
recesses In thu room, and I thought
the girl had stepped Into one of these,
but Just then I saw her shadow out
side. "Miss Holbrook Is on the balconv,"
"Oh, very well. We must go," she
replied, quietly, but lingered before the

to tho balcony. As I approached one

In her .-(infusion alio had dropped
her handkerchief, and when I leturned
It she slipped It Into her cuff with a
mm miir of thanks. A Hash of anger
lighted her eyes and she colored
slightly, but she was composed in an
Instant. And, looking off beyond the
water-tower I was not surprised to see
the Stiletto qulie near our shore, her
while sails lllling lazily In the scant,
wind. A tiny n,iS Hashed locognltlon
and answer to tho girl's signal, and
was hauled down at once.
We were both silent as we watched

her bead a moment, tucking the hand
kei chief a nine more secuiely into her
sleeve. She smiled quizzically, with n
eoniptesslon of the lips.
"The view here la tine. Isn't it?"
We regarded each other with entire
good humor. I heard Miss Pat within,
slowly crossing tho bare Uoor of tho

Quite Like Her!"
I went to the stone water-tower and
scanned the movements of the Stiletto
with a glass while I waited. Theaioop
was tacking slowly away toward An
nandale, her skipper managing his
sheet with an expert hand. It may
have been the ugly business in which
the pretty toy was engaged, or it may
have been the Inzy deliberation of her
oblique progress over the water, but I
felt then and afterward that there was
something sinister In every line of the
Stiletto. The more I deliberated the
less certain 1 became of anything that
pertained to the Holbiooks; and I
tested my memory by lepeating tho
alphabet and counting ten, to make
sure that my wits were still equal to
We drove into Annandale without
Incident and with no apparent timidity
on Miss Pat's part. Helen was nil
amiability and cheer. I turned per
force to address her now and then, and
to find that the lurking smile ubout
her lips, and a challenging light in her
eyes, woke no resentment in me.
1 left Miss Pat and Helen at the
gcneial store while I sought the hard
ware mei chant with a list of trllles
required for Glenaim. I was detained
some time longer than I had ex
pected, and in leaving I stood for a
moment on the platform before the
shop, gossiping with the merchant of
village affairs I glanced down Jthe
street to see if the ladies had ap
peared, and observed at tho same tlmo
my team and wagon standing at tho
curb In charge of the dilver, Just as I
had left them.
While I still talked to the merchant,
Helen came out of the general stoie,
glanced hurriedly up and down tho
street, and crossed quickly to the post
ofllce, which lay opposite. I watclted
her as I made my ad leu v to the shop
keep&r, and just then I witnessed
something that Interested mo at once.
Within the open door of the post-office
tho Italian sailor lounged Idly. Helen
carried a number of letters In her
hand, and us sho entered the post
otllce I was sure my eyes played mo
no Hick deftly, nlmost Imperceptibly,
an envelope passed from her hand to
ihe Italian's. Ho stood Immovable, as
he had been, while tho girl passed on
into the ofllce. Sho leappeaied at
once, reerossed tho sheet and met her
aunt at the door of the general stoie.
I rejoined them, and as we all met by
the waiting trap the Italian left the
post-olllco and strolled slowly away
toward the lake.
I was not sure whether Miss Pat
saw him. If she did she made no sign,
but began descilblng with much
amusement an odd countryman sho
had seen in the shop.
"You mailed our letters, did jou,
Helen? Then I believe we have quite
finished. Mr. Donovan. 1 like your
llttlo village; I'm disposed to lovo
everything about this beautiful lake."
"Yes; even tho town hall, where thu
Old Georgia Minstrels seem to havo
appeared for ono night only, somo
time last December, Is a shiiuo worthy
of pllgi Images." remarked Helen. "And
postage stamps cost no more hero
than in Stamford. I had really ox
pected that they would bo a tiillo
I laughed rnthor more than was re
quired, for thoso wonderful oyes of
hers wore flllod with something nkln
to honest fun. Sho was proud of hor
self, and was oven Hushed tho least bit
with hurt success.
An wo passed the village pier I ttaw
tho Stiletto lying at tho edgo of tho
Inlet that made a miniature harbor for
tho village, and, rowing swiftly toward
it, his oars Hashing brightly, was tho
Italian. Htlll plainly in sight. Whether
Miss Pat taw tho boat and Ignored It,
or failed to nee, I did not know, for
when I turned she was studying tho
cover of a mngazlno that lay in her
lap. Helen fell to talking vivaciously
of the contrasts between American
and English landscape; and so wo
drove back to St. Agntha's.
Thereafter, for the matter of ten
days, nothing happened. 1 brought thu
ladles of SI. Agatha's often to Glen
arm, and we went forth together con
stantly by land and water without In
terruption. They lccelved and dis
patched letters, and nothing marred
tho quiet order of their lives. The Stlllot
to vanished from my hoilzon, and lay,
so IJIma learned for me, within tho
farther lake. Henry Holbiook had, I
made no doubt, gone away with tho
draft Helen had secured fiom CJllles
pie, and of Gillespie himself I heard
The Carnival of Canoes.
I had dined alouo and was lounging
about tho grounds when I heard voices
near tho Glenarm wall. There was no
formal walk theie, and my stops woro
silenced by tho turf. Tho heavy scent
of flowers from within gave mo a hint
of my whereabouts; there was, I ie
membered, at this point on tho school
lawn a rustic bench embowered in
honeysuckle, and Miss Pat and Helen
were, I surmised, taking their coffoo
there. 1 started away, thinking to enter
by the gate and Join them, when Hel
en's voice rose angrily theie was no
mistaking it, anil she said in a tono
that rang oddly on my ears:
"Hut you are unkind to him! You
are unjust! It Is not lair to blanio fa
ther for his ill fortune."
"That is true, Helen; but it is not your
father's ill fortune that I hold against
him. All I ask of him is to be sane,
reasonable, to change his maimer of
life, and to come to mo in a spirit of
"Hut he is proud, just as you urn;
and Uncle Arthur ruined him! It was
not father, but Uncle Arthur, who
hi ought all these hideous things upon
I passed rapidly on, nnd resumed my
walk elsewhere. It was a sad busi
ness, the shadowy father; thecrlmlnnl
uncle, who had, as Helen said, brought
ruin upon them all; the sweet, mother
ly, older sister, driven in desperation
to hide; and, not less melancholy, this
beautiful girl, the pathos of whose po
sition had struck me increasingly. Per
haps Miss Pat was too severe, and I
half accused her of I know not what
crimes of rapacity and greed for with
holding her brother's money; then I
Bet my teeth hard into my pipe as my
slumbering loyalty to Miss Pat warmed
my heart again.
"It's the night of the carnival, sir,"
IJIma reminded me, seeking mo at tho
"Very good, IJlmu. You needn't lock
tho boathouse. 1 may go out later."
Tho cottagers at Port Annandalo

and this was tho uppolnted night. I
was lu no mood for gayoty of any sort,
hut it occurred to me that 1 might re

Helen and her aunt by taking them
out to watch the procession of boats.
I passed through tho gate and took
a turn or two, not to appenr to know
of tho whereabout of the women, nad

Sh.o greeted me with hor usual kind

ITY AND PRICE"
THE THREE ESSENTIALS THAT
ARE GIVING WESTERN CANADA
Greater Impulse Than Ever This Year.
Tho reports from tho grain fields of
Central Canada, (which comprises the
Provinces of Mnnitoba, Saskatchewan
and Alberta) aro to hand. The year
lUOii has not only kept pace with pre
vious years in proving Hint this por
tion of the Continent Is cnpnblo of
producing a splendid yield of all the
smaller grains, but it has thoroughly
outstripped previous seasons. There
Is quantity, quality and price and from
all parts of an area of about fl".0,000
square miles there comes the strong
refrain of contentment nnd satlsfne
Hon. In tho distribution of the con
ditions cnusing it no district has been
Various estimates of the total yield
of wheat for the country have been
tuntie, nut it is not the vast total that
influences tho general reader so much
as what has been done individually.
The grand total say 130 million bush
els may havo Its effect on tho grain
price of the world; it may be Interest
ing to know that In the world's mar
kets the wheat crop of Canada has
suddenly broken upon the trading
boards, and with the Argentine, nnd
with Itussln and India, Is now a fac
tor In the making of prices. If so to
day, what will be Its effect live or ten
years from now, when, instead of
there being seven million acres under
crop with a total yield of 125 or 1.10
million bushels, there will bo from 17
to 30 million ncres in wheat with a
yield of from 1525 to COO million bush
els. When It is considered that the
largest yield in the United Status but
slightly exceeded 700 million bushels,
the greatness of these figures mny be
understood. Well, such is a snfe fore
cast, for Canada bus the land and it
has the soil. Kven today the Prov
ince of Saskatchewan, one of the three
great wheat growing provinces of Can
ada, with 100,000 acres under wheat,
produces nearly 90 million bushels, or
upwnids of one-tenth of the grentest
yield of the United States. And Sas
katchewan Is yet only In the begin
ning of its development. As Lord
Grey recently pointed out in speaking
on this very subject, this year's crop
does not represent one-tenth of the
soil equally fertile that is yet to be
In ought under the plough.
Individually, reports are to hand
of yields of twenty-five, thirty and
thirty-live bushels to the acre. Scores
of yields are reported of forty and
some as high as sixty bushels. The
tanner, who takes care of his soil,
who gets his seed-bed ready early, is
certain of a splendid crop.
The news of the magnificent crop
yield throughout the Canadian West
will be pleasing to tho friends of the
thousands of Americans who tiro resi
dents in that country nnd who nro
vastly instrumental in the assistance
they are rendering to let tho world
know its capabilities.
