The Week of Their Lives.
"Toyo'a gono back to Italy," said
Cazalet. "Ho says ho may bo away
only a week. Let's make It tho week
of our lives!"
The scene was the little room It
pleaBed Blanche to call her parlor,
and the time a preposterously early
hour of tho following forenoon. Caza

But Blanche saw only his worn, ex
cited faco; and her own was not at
Its best In her sheer amazement
"Italy!" she ejaculated. "When did

"But" she checked herself "I sim
ply can't understand It, that'B all!"
"Why? Havo you seen him since
the other afternoon?"
His manner might have explained
those other two remarks, now bother
ing her when It was too lato to notlco
them; on the other hand, she was by
no means Buro that It did. Ho might
Blmply dlsllko Toyo, and that again
might explain his extraordinary heat
over tho argument at Llttleford.
Blancho began to feel the air some
what heavily charged with explana
tions, either demanded or desired;
they were things she hated, and sho
determined not to add to them If she
could help It.
"I haven't sot eyes on him again,"
she said. "But he's been seen hero
In a taxi."
"Who saw him?"
"Martha If she's not mistaken."
This was a little disingenuous, as
will appear; but that Impetuous Sweep
was In n merciful hurry to know some
"When waB this, Blanche?"
"Just about dark say seven or so.
Bho owns It was about dark," said
Blanche, though she felt ashamed of
"Well, It's JuBt possible. Ho left me
about six; said he had to see someone,
too, now I think of It. But I'd give a
bit to know what he was doing mess
ing about down here at the last mo
ment!" Blanche liked this as little as any
thing that Cazalet had said yet. and he
had said nothing that sho did like this
morning. But thoro were allowances
to bo mado for him, she know. And
t to strengthen her knowledge, or
rather to let him confirm It for her,
either by word or by his silence, she
stated a certain case for him aloud.
"Poor old Sweep!" Bho laughed.
"It's a Bhamo that you should havo
como home to be worried like this."
"I am worried," ho said simply.
"I think It's Just splendid, all you'ro
doing for that poor man, but especially
tho way you'ro doing It."
"I wish to God you wouldn't say
He paid her tho compliment of
speaking exactly as ho would have
spoken to a man; or rather, she hap
pened to be tho woman to take it as
"But I do Bay it, Sweop! I'vo heard
all about It from Charllo. Ho rang mo
up last night."
"You'ro on tho telephone, are you?"
"Everybody Is In theso days.
Where havo you lived? Ob, I forgot!"
And Bho laughed. Anything to lift this
duet of theirs out of tho minor key!
"But what does old Charllo really
think of tho case? That's moro to the
point," Bald Cazalet uneasily.
"Well, ho seemed to fear there wns
no chance of bull beforo tho adjourned
hoarlng. But- 1 rather guthen-d ho
was not going to bo In It himself?"
"No. We decided on ono of those
sportsmen who love rushing in where
n family lawyer like Charllo owns to

BaVago, and our find In tho founda

"But suiely lio'll have to tell Mb

"No. He's Just tho typo who would
havo rushed In. anyhow. And It'll bo
tltno enough to put Scruton under obli

knew shu could "have taken
his hand, but for a very good reason
wny sho could not. She had oven to
guard against an equivocally sympa

"How long did they retnnnd him for?"
"Well, then, you'll know tho best or
tho worst today week!"
"Yes!" ho snld eagerly, almost him
self again. "But, whichever wny It
goes, I'm afraid It means troublo for
mo, Blancho; some tlnio or other I'll
tell you why; but that's why I want
this to bo tho week of our lives,"
So ho really meant what ho had said
beforo. Tho phrase had been no caro

after all, did It necessarily apply to

Blancho ran off to Martha, who
fussed and hindered her with tho best
intentions. It would havo boeu dim
cult to say which was the moro ex
cited of tho two, But tho old nurse
would waste time In perfectly fatuouB
reminiscences of the very earliest ex
peditions in which Mr. Cazalet had
led and Blancho had followed, and
what a bonny pair thoy had made
even then, etc. Severely snubbed on
that subject, she took to peering at
her mistress, onco hor balm, with fur
tlvo eagerness and impatience; for
Blanche, on her side, looked as though
sho had something on her mind, and,
indeed, bad made ono or two attempts
to get It off. Sho had to forco It even
In tho end.
"There's Just one thing I want to
say beforo I go, Martha. You know
when Mr. Toye called yesterday, I was
"Oh, Mr. Toye; yes, I remember,
"Well. I don't want you to say that
he came In and waited half an hour
In vain; In fact, not that ho came
In at all, or that you'ro even sure you
saw him, unless, of course, you're
"Who should nsk me, I wondor?"
"Well, I -don't know, but thero sooms
to be a llttlo bad blood between Mr.
Toyo and Mr. Cazalet."
Martha looked for a moment as
though she were about to weep, and
then for another moment as though
she would die of laughing. But a
third moment she celebrated by mak
ing an otter fool of hersolf, as she
would have been told to her fnco by
anybody but Blanche, whoso yellow
hair was being disarranged by the
very hands that had helped to Imprls
on it under that motor hat nnd veil
"Oh, Blauchlo, Is that all you have
to tell mo?" suld Martha.
And then tho week of their lives be
gan. Tho weather was truo to them, and
thlB was a larger matter than It might
havo been They wore not making
lovo. Thoy wero "not out for that,"
as Blanche hoi self actually told Mar
tha, with nunlhllntlng scorn, when
tho old dear looked both knowing and
longlng-to-know at tho end of the llrst
day's run. They were out to enjoy
thoiusclvoB. and that seemed shoeK
lug to Martha "unions something was
coming of It." She had Just sense
enough to keep her conditional clause
Yet It thoy were only out to enjoy
themselves, In tho wny Miss Blancho
vowed nnd declared (moro shnmo for
her), they certainly had done wonders
for a start. Martha could hardly
credit all they suld they had done,
nnd as an embittered pedestrian thero
was nothing that sho would "put past'
ono of thoso nasty motors. It said
very llttlo for Mr. Cazalet, by tho way.
in Martha's private opinion, that he
should take her Miss Blanche out In
a car at nil; If ho had turned out as
well ns Bho had hoped, and "meant
anything," n nlco boat on tho river
would have been better for them both
than all thnt tearing through tho air
In n cloud of smoky dust; It would
also havo been much less expenslvo,
nnd far more "tho thing."
But, there, to sco and hear tho child
after tho llrst day! Sho lookod so
bonny that for n time Martha really
believed that Mr. Cazalet had "spo
ken," nnd allowed herself to admlro
him also ns he drove off later with IiIh
wicked lamps alight. But Blancho
would only go on and on about her
tiny, the glories of tho Itipley rond and
tho grandeur of lllndhead. Sho had
brought back heaps of heather and
bunches of leaves Just beginning to
turn, thoy were nil over tho llttlo
house beforo Cazalet had been gono
ten minutes But Blancho hadn't fur
gotten her poor old Martha; sho was
not one to forget people, especially
when she loved and yet hnd to snub
them. Maltha's portion was picture
postcards of tho Gibbet and other laud
marks of the day.
"And If you're good," said Blancho
"you shall huvo hoiiio every day, and
nn album to keep them In forever and
cvor. And won't that be nlco when
It's all over, and Mr. Cazalot's gone
back to Australia?"
Cruder anticlimax was never
planned, but Martha's face had
brought it on her; and now it re
mained to mako hor sco for herself
what an Incomparably good tlmo they
I Above all was it delightful to feel
that their beloved car was waiting for
them outside, to whirl them whero
thoy liked; for qulto early In tho
woek (and this was a glaring aggra
vation In Martha's eyes) Cazalet had
taken lodgings for himself and driver
In those very Nell Gwynne Cottages
whero Hilton Toye had stayed bofore
The Thousandth Man.
It had been new llfo to them, but
now it was all over. It was the last
evening of their week, and they wero
spending it rather silently on
"I mako it at least threo hundred,"
said Cazalet, and knocked out a plpo
thnt might havo been a gag. "You
sco, we wero very seldom under fifty!"
"Speak for yourself, please! My
longevity's a tender point," said
Blancho, who looked rb though she
had n6 business to lmvo her hair up,
as she sat in n palo cross-fire between
a lamppost nnd her lighted room.
Cazalet protested that ho had only
meant their mlleago In tho car; he
mado himself extremely Intelligible
now, ns he often would when sho ral
lied him In a serious volco.
"Well, It's been a heavenly time,"
she assured him Just onco moro. "And
tomorrow it'H pretty sure to como all
right about Scruton, Isn't It?"
"Yes! Tomorrow we shall probably
have Toyo back," ho answered with
"What has that to do with It, Wal
ter?" "Oh, nothing, of courso."
But still his tono was grim and
heavy, with a schoolboy Irony that ho
would not explain but could not keep
to himself. So Mr. Toyo must bo
turnod out of the conversation, though
It was not Blancho who had dragged
him In. Sho wished people would
stick to their point
"There's ono thing I'vo rather want
ed to nsk you," sho began.
"Yes?" Bald Cazalet.
"You Bald tho other day that It
would mean worry for you In any cose
after tomorrow whether the charge
is dismissed or not!"
His wicker chair creaked under
"I don't seo why It should," sho per
sisted, "If tho case falls through."
"Well, that's where I come In," he
had to say.
"Surely you mean Just the other
way about? If thoy commit the man
for trial, then you do como In, I know.

may bo quoted. A settlor who camo
to Canada from tho United States
some yenrs ago decided to add to hla

at $20.00 an aero, with terms spread
over a period of years. Ho got tho
laud Into a good state of cultivation
and Inst spring put tho whole quarter
section In wheat. When the crop was
threshed ho found thnt It only took
hnlf tho wheat on tho farm to pay tho
wholo purchase prlco of It; In short
a slnglo yenr'B crop paid tho cost of
tho land, paid all tho expenses of op

crop for tho Reason amounted to

couple of years ago Canada imported
from tho United States two or three
hundred million dollars' worth of
goods moro than sho exported. The
balanco of trado was all with the
United States. Tho balanco Is rapid

look Is that by tho end of this year
Canada will havo exported to tho
United States moro than sho has Im

Efficiency built the Panama Canal, after inefficiency failed.
The efficiency of the Panama Canal doubled the effective
ness of the U. S. Navy without addinp; a ship to it. It
took over 8,000 mile; out of the trip from New York to
San Francisco and changed the highway between London
and Australia from Suez to Panama.
Efficiency insures against lost motion it produces the ut
most service out of equipment and yields the finest product, at
the least cost.
is an efficiency product
Every advantage that men, money and machinery can offer is used
to increase the production, maintain the quality and lower the cost.
Each of the General's enormous mills is advantageously located
to serve the ends of efficient manufacture and quick distribution.
Each is equipped with the most up-to-date machinery. Raw
materials are purchased in enormous quantities and far ahead of
the needs of manufacturing, thus guarding against increased
cost due to idle machinery. This also insures favorable buying,
and the pick of the market.
Expert chemists at each mill are employed to select and blend the
asphalts, and every roll of CERTAIN-TEED is made under
their watchful care.
CERTAIN-TEED resists the drying-out p'rocess so destructive
to ordinary roofing, because the felt is thoroughly saturated with a
blend of soft asphalts, prepared under the formula of the General's
board of expert chemists. It is then coated with a blend of harder
asphalts, which keeps the inner saturation soft. This makes a
roofing more pliable, and more impervious to the elements than
the harder, drier kind.
CERTAIN-TEED is made in rolls; also in slate-surfaced shingles.
There is a type of CERTAIN
TEED for every kind of building,
with flat or pitched rqofs, front the
largest sky-scraper to the smallest
residence or out-building.
CERTAIN-TEED is guaranteed for
5, 10 or 15 years, according to ply
(1,2 or 3). Experience proves that
it lasts longer.
