exceedingly protty. Tho coat lo light In

a light silver gray when tho light la

aa tho light is shifted It tunia to a clear

ance of Jet black. Mr. Mallorner
nays that It baa attracted so much at
tention In tho eastern clticB that ho had
to lay It nHldo to kcoprom being both
ered answering questions as to what
It was and where ho got It.
"Tho fur of tho unborn music ox,"
eald he, "lo very rare. In fact, cannot
bo had for money. Tho way I got the
fur to make thin one was peculiar. Two
yoara ago I mado n trip to tho Great
Slave lako nnd in ilttlns out at Atha
basca Landing I bought i cauoe, paying
5100 for it. It was along toward fall
when I got back to tho landing and
thcro I met nn old trapper, who had
been "hunting and trapping along tho
lakeR nnd rivers tor a number ot ycarc.
He Bcemed to tako qulto a fancy to iny
canoe, although he did not say any
thing, but vaa looking it over carofully
nnd noting lta good points, aa a horso
fancier would a blood horse. Finally
he stopped up to me and ould: 'Sny,
mister, whnt are you going to do with
"At that time I had no oxpectationo
of ercr going up "in that part of tho
country again and, as the boat Could be
of littlo value to me, I nuHwerod, 'Just
to shot you that the Yankees are all
right I'll gtv you that boat. Ho waa
greatly pleased nnd, after looking It
over again, bo cnltl: 'Well, I'll Just
Bhow you that the old trapper Is nil
right, too,' and, taking me over to his
warehouse, ho got a number of thcoo
furs and gave them to me. At a cash
value they would bo worth many tlmoa
the canoo and they wero his accumula
tion for a number of years.
"After mnklug thu coat I found that
I only lacked two of having euough
to make a Jacket for my ulster, nnd
whon I went on my trip down tho
Mackenzie this year I met tho trapper
again and told him that I would like
Jo get threo more. Ho loaned mo tho
canon that J had given him tho year
beforo, and when I returned to tho
landing In tho fall he had three fura

It wna tlio busy neaaou at a great
bank. Long rovs of womon, Bomo
anxious and doprcsscd-lookins. all of
them with nn unmiBtnltablo air of wea
riness, were waiting thrlr turn with
boohs to bo presented for tho semi
annual Jnterest. A pompous and many
buttoned officlnl pncod back and forth
with a look of determination to keep
order or die on his grim visage. The
woman nt tho window was a new de
positor, tmd there wna a longer wait
than usual, while sho answered nil tho
questions relativo to her genealogy nnd
that of her Bistern and her cousins and
her aunts Information which ono.must
always give to a great bank before It
will condescend to receive, and some
times loso, your monoy.
At lant came the fateful question:
"What Is your ago?"
A faint bUtoh Etolo over tho faded
cheeks, the antlquuted and corkscrew
curio quivered with agitation, ns sho
murmured, "I'd rather not tell, please."
The bank cleric meant business. Ho
had no sympathy with the mnlden mod
'caty of tho trembling nspirant to finan
cial dignity. "O, but you must tell," he
replied, somowhat brusquely.
The blushes grew painful, but ther
was still a loopholfi of escape. At least
all tho world fchould not know hor age,
and, raising herself on tiptoe so nn to
bring her faco close to the window for
she was short of mature she said:
"May I whisper It, plense?" And tho
woman behind wll) novor know how old
