My dear Young Friends,--I have re

of them look very pretty, and are nitely

the whole picture, it was very well drawn
as I should not think it was easy to copy.
but it was only meant to be coloured and
out out of the paper- A few of the pic-
tares were mounted on cards, which
showed them up nicely, some gave the
men black clothes, some white, and others
blue, and several were painted all colours
of the rainbow, the tope of the men'.

We have just lately celebrated the
Nelson Centenary, it was a hundred years
ago on the 21st of Oct., that Lord Nelson
was killed at the Battle of Trafalgar.
No doubt you have all beard something
about this great Naval hero, and all tht
victories he won for England. His flag-
ship the Victory can still be seen at Ports-
mouth now, and many people go to see
it, the places where he fell and where be
died, are marked by brass plates. His
statue in London was eeecorated with ever-
greens and wreaths, and in Rye we had a
special service in church on Sunday the
22nd, which was attended by the Mayor
and Coporatlon and the Local Volunteers,
the Coast Guards, and Firemen all in full
dress so our church was very full.
I remember once hearing about a little
boy was one day taken to church by his
father and mother for the first time.
When the collection bag came round to
them he put in something (as his mother
thought) but when they got outside he
said, mother how much did you get out
of the Lucky Bag? I get sixpence !' and
he opened his hand and showed her
the coin. He evidently thought every
one took something out, instead of put.
ting something in.

Doan's Backache Kidney Pills.
Mr. Joseph E. Isaac, of Leonora, West
Ooast, British Guiana, says in a commu-
nication received: I am more than proud
to tell you that I am quite better since
using your Doan's backache kidney pills,
and 1 highly congratulate you upon your
splendid medicine. It should be known
by all who suffer like I uned to.
For nearly three .years I was troubled
from time to time with cutting pains in
the back and joints. My ankles and
limbs used to swell there were distress-
ing urinary disorders and sediment. My
heart was weak, I was troubled with
chilly sensation, and occasionally I used
to feel dizzy and faint.
My doctor did nto tell me what was
the matter, but he could not cure me.
After taking Dan's backache kidney pills
a week or two, I felt ever so much better,
and now I believe myself cared. You are
welcome to publish these fact*, for the
sake of others. (Slgned) Joseph E.

(By a Special Representative )
The Kingstooi Choral Union gave a
LUnsIal ana D-Emitit -.--t--.-t .. f ad

the Gordon Hall on Wednesday evening,
last week.
The attendance was rather poor, a re-
grettable fact, as an excellent programme
had been prepared. Part I. of the pro-
gramme was made up of the musical num.
bers. The Opening Ohorus, White's
* Come Fairy Moonlight' was rendered
with intelligence and precision. This, and
indeed several other numbers, were marred
by indistinct enunciation. A little atten.
tion gives Lu th ts punt would produee a
wonderful improvement in the perform-
anoes of the Society. A Duet, The
Elfia's Call sung by Mrs. Lawrence and
Miss Coverly was well received. Miss
Ooverley's fine Contralto was displayed to
advantage. The humourous made Quar-
tette by Mesrs. Drysdale, Rodgers,
Bryan and Ramsay, introduced the comic
element in a pleasing manner and the
audience were not slow to show their ap-
preciation. MisA Adeline MeDermot, the
*Jamaica Patti,' rendered the Recitative

and Aria .ouj raviata. he piece is one
which makes great demands upon the
singer and is not to be essayed by a tyro.
Miss McDermot however, was equal to
the occasion and gave an exceedingly
creditable rendition. Excepting a slight
lou of pitch, and indistinct enunciation
her performance was altogether praise
worthy. The Tenor Obligato (behind the
scenes) was taken by Mr. J. T. Loncke a
gentleman from BrItish Guiana who made
his debut in Jamaica at this Concert
But of Mr. Loncke, more hereafter.
Other items were a Patriotic Chorus Bri
tannin,' a song Pearl of Sweet Ceylon'
by Mr. J. Packer Ramsay, whose splendid
bass voice is now a favourite with King-
ston audiences, and Pinsutis part song
* Good Night Beloved.' Thi4 latter item
was the beat of the evening. An excep-
tionally fine and sympathetic interpre-
tation of Pinsutis beautiful music was
given. The parts were well balanced, and
with Mr. Nation as accompanist the suoe-
eeas of the piece was assured. Mr. Jack-
son, the conductor, must be complimented
on this pies of work, which does credit
to his taste and training.
The last item of Part I. was a song
Wake my Love' by Mr. J. T. Loacke.
Mr. Loneke has a powerful tenor voice
which he uses with taste. His enuncia-
tion is good. The song did not afford an
opportunity for the display of his high
note6, but his chest notes are full and of
good quality. We must confess to be-
ing favourably impressed by Mr. Loneke's
singing, and we hope to hear more of it. -
Part I. consisted of a Serio-Comic one

Merciful Rabbit Trap.
It is confidently stated that the shock-
,e rn-lt.. e-f t e *steel t ap In common
,&e for oatching rabbit, can readily aad

cheaply be prevented by twisting a few
turns of copper or brass wire closely
round e ch jaw, below the teeth, where
the spring flee up, ao as to ensure the
teeth being always fixed a full quarter of
an inch open when the trap ia sprung.

Rabbits are thus caught with equal es
and when taken out of the traps an
found uninjured, To complete their pur-
pose the traps must be placed far down
in the holes and be regularly visited
early and late. These modified traps are
most sueeessful, with advantages rela-
tive to food, wild dogs, eats, and birds
derive proportionate freedom from suf-
fering when trapped by mistake.

kindness to animals.

The Girls' Club.
Among the organizations in Kingston
quietly doing good work I. the Girls'
Club, started some time ago at the OArls
tian Church in Duke Street, Its influ-
ence on the girls that come within Its
reach is all for good, and the weekly
meetings in which they enjoy instruction
in work, and healthy amusement in the
playing of games, ete., are bright spots
in lives that are otherwise very monoton-

oun and bare.

A Beautiful Plant
At Hope GarJens,
Camoensia marima flowered in April,
1941 for the firAt time, in Hope Gardens.
It is said to be the largest flower of any
plant in the liguminons order; the colour
is white, edged with gold.
The first specimens of these flowers
found by the botanist Welwitach, in
Africa, were one foot long, but in aclti.
nation they have not attained the same
length. The plant flowered for toe first
time in England in 1894. Camoosea is a
climbing plant, a native of Angola. It
belongs to the pe family, Le m .
Welwitaeh deribed it as a robust shrb,
climbing to a great height, and then
hanging down its graceful breaebes, con-
sttuting the higetornament amongst
the climbing ahrubs of this regions

At Hope Gardens it is growing over a
calabash tree on the lawn. The lowers
measure l0 inches, from base of sepals
to tip of standard. The standard is seven
inches long by 4j inches broad. The
petals are pure white in colour, the edges
beauitiullyeriaped, a edged with a line
of gold. The standard, in addition, has a
deep shading yellow down the centre,
breaking up into mall, Irregular path_
of pure gold near the apex.
The Hope plant produced a raceme of
thirteen flowers at first, and afterwanr a
second raceme of eight flowers. The
flowers expnded first tn paiks, the in
sets of three, and finally by singl bioem.
Each flower lasted in full beauty nearly
two days. The peds dropped off while
quite young.
The plant flowered again n Ft bruary
1902, and oeeaionally since then

the names engraven on it of men who bad
governed that mission trom troublous to

their Unitas Fratram. The graveyard

The hospital tells many a tale of those
who do, for a stained l.fe burns the mark
of Cam into ever one who slays the Abel
within him. Deeply interesting too was
the glorious panorama to the south,
though the Bishop assured us, not as glort
ous as iniclear morning light, There was
now a haze of vapour, like some white
impalpable dust; thinnest of Beauty's
veils yet dimming the exultation of joy
wherewith we thrill to Beauty's self.
Nevertheless we wondered, gazing as fre m
a great are of the world over the elge of
an unknown depth, wherefrom swept
mightily towards, along and above the
hor zon eastwards to westwards thirty
miles of more, a vast inclined plane, coal-
escing hundreds of summits, mingling
shade on shade, advancing tier on tier, in
one vast ur vig line that encrocobed far
up the skies. To the eastern extreme of
this. great' tilled plain Oarlisle Bay--a

Before us the great amphitheatre,

Lacovia and further down the bright
yellow green of RBtm's marshland. Further
again, dark emerald patches of sugar

cane, the vivid gleam of smooth pastures,
and darkest of all, great woodlands hem-
ming them in and surging upwards to
where, westsouth westward, arose the
long barrier ridge of the Santa Cruz
Mountains, shapely and pure'beneath the
passionless sky.
I have never seen this wonderful ahno-

rama at Its brightest. By a picturesque
route full of toiling upward and rattling
downward of heights and ravines taken
early in our holiday we got, beyond
Newark House, a sudden vision of one
half of it, for a gigantic curtain of black.
eat cloud had been let down from hea-

colour, green and amber and purple, shot
eastward from. beneath that monstrcus
shadow made what remained of so
unearthly a loveliness, 1 feared, as
if permitted to gaze for once on an un-
known world. Disappointed at not see-
ing all, the shock of what I saw so sud-
denly, so weirdly, made a far more pro-
found impression on my heart than the
second broad hazy vision from Farifield.

When the former chief engineer John
W. Wallace resigned, Mr. Shonts was
invested with much of the authority
Mr. Wallace had exercised. and the new
chief engineer, instead of being made a
member of the commission, was made
a subordinate to Mr. .Sbonut. Mr.
Shonts takes a position that this work
is in his line as a promoter in railroads
and great business enterprises, and if he
is to be responsible fcr it his judgement
must be unrestrained.

Fine Tobacco.
Mr. W. H. Lundie, 1311 Harbour St.
has just received another shipment of
Cope Bros' famous English tobaccos,
which although not very long on the
local market are pushing their way well
forward in the front rank of imported
tobaccos. This they are doing on the
strength of their quality, and freedom
from the sarions deleterious substances
that usually find a place in smoking mix-
tures. In addition to giving a cool plea-
sant smoker, the tongue does not suffer
by coming in contact with the tobacco.
One highly delighted user of Cope's to-
bacco describes it as being as sweet as
honey and as fragrant as new mown hay.'

announced in another column the
Union's financial year closes on
the 30th, and it is necessary that
all who are to qualify as mem
bers should do so at once. We
cannot too strongly urge every
teacher to join the Union. Its
existence, its strength, its sue-
cess, is of very great importance
to leaebers. while it is of very
appreciable usefulness generally.
In Jamaica where the practical
art of co operation is yet in its
infancy, despite the perfect way
in which we talk about it, one
often hears the objection to the
Usion that it does not do this, or

the critic will not join it. This is
a very mistaken view of it.
Nothing can be done unless the
organisation is set up, and its
possibilities of doing work in-
crease or decrease according to
its extent. Instead of standing
out because the Association doe,
what differs from our individual
opinion, we should enter it, and
try to bring our opinion to bear
by the only way that is reason-
able and manly. Namely by ex-
pounding it, arguing foi it, do-
fending it, and endeavouring to
get it to take hold of the reason
of colleagues. Perhaps in the
course of doing this, we may see
reason to modify or entirely
change our own opinion. Or
our opinion may win its way.
To walk out of an Association
because we cant get that done
which we think should be done,
is a display of vanity, or
We do not say for a moment that
the J.U.T. is perfect, that it makes
no mistakes. We do not say that
we agree with ito every attitude and
act. But we do claim for it that it
is a growing influence, that it has
done useful and important work. We
do claim that it is the Teachers duty
to add to its powers and possibili-
ties by jcining it, and wre hope to
learn that its membership this year
reaches a higher number than ever
We cannot refer to the Union
without esying a word in appreci-
ation of its General Secretary Mr.
ALBMRT J. SITH. The success of
the Union is without doubt due to a
considerable extent to his untiring
devotion to ite service. He combines
with a marked amount of ability. a
high sense of public duty, and a
living public spirit that command
our sincere admiration.

tnon mat me governor wil not as at
present advised consent to curtail the
age limit beyond 8 to 12 years.
'(3) The Board is of" opinion that
the adoption of the suggested system
of compulsory education will involve
in the near future a considerable in-
crease in the present annual expen-
diture for education in the island,
but the Board as hereafter set forth,
offers some suggestions with the view
of helping to provide for such in-
(4) On the question of fees and
two classes of pupils in the schools,
whilst the Board feels that the re-
introduction of fees, and the dis-
tinction between pupils within the
age limit as specified by the Board,
and auasi- rivatea ouils of school

mastere' is undesirable and will be
attended by inconveniences in school
work, it urges as its opinion that
under the present financial condition
a longer period of free instruction
can be provided for, the following
arrangements fr the attendance of
children in school will meet the
di.hiculties and remove all inconve-
niences as far as possible.
(a) Free voluntary attendance
from seven to eight years of age.
(b) Compulsory attendance from
eight to twelve.
'(c) Voluntary attendance with
payment of fees from twelve to
fifteen years of age
These arrangements would cover
the same number of years as are
prescribed by the present code, and
secure compulsory attendance be-
'tween the ages of eight to twelve
years of age charging fees only for
older pupils.'
The preliminary condition that
whatever scheme is adopted,
white It must seeure a material
extension of education and bring
a considerable number more
children into the schools, must
net increase the expenditure, ir
what makes the puzzling out of
the problem so ifieult. It is
not however impossible, and
the task should be attacked in
the spirit that hurled the Ja-
panese against the walls of Pt.
Arthur again and again, unds-
terred by repeated failure. We
must solve this part of the prob
lem now. Let as pay no head
to those whoee hearts fail them,
and who call to us to let things
be yet a while as they have
been. The time has come to win a
way through and win it we must.
It will perhape- qeilkem the-
sympathy and discipline the pa.
tience of the average reader if
we indicate a few of the intiea-

it shall be introduced.


the attempt shall be made over
the entire field at once, or wheth-
er it should be confined to a fow
selected centres. If it is made
general it seems obvious that to
compulsion must be limited to a
certain number of the years of
school attefdanee. otherwise
there would be brought into the
schools far more than could be
acoommodoted, involving of
course just that extra expenditure
that it is an axiom of the prob-
lem should be shut out, We
therefore find that the age of
compulsion is proposed as from
eight to twelve only.
But perhaps it would be better,
and personally we think it would
be, to confine our attention at the
start to introducing compulsion
at selected centres. In that case
it mirht ha nnmaihhl to ayrtAnl

the compulsion over the entire
school age, at those centres,
providing for the increased at-
tendance that will result there by
cutting off one year all over the
field, that is by letting children
come to school at even instead
of sil.. Or it might be still safer
to limit the compulsion even at
the selected centres, to a part
only of the school age, as a start.
The great thing is to make what
we do start with in this direction
really effective. Can we cover
the whole field for Compulsion,
it seems doubtful. Nor is it
seriously proposed that we should
attempt it. The AcrBisor P in
his last pronouncement did not
again emphasize the fact, as he
had so mueb ground to cover,
bat we know that he has not

abandoned the idea of a gradual
introduction of compulsion.
Another issue is as to the ages
to be taken for compulsion, ub
we have indicated it seems to us
that compulsion could be applied
from thwearliest years, from six or
even from five, even with the least
amount of friction, snd if the
children could be kept steadily at
school from five to twelve, and
then left to voluntary attendauoe
and the payment of fees, this
would be giving that sick horse

The Governor's position is of
course the simple aud tenable one
that the Law requires one thing, and
that another is being done.
He requires that the law be ob-
served. Of course there are only two
legal and proper alternatives, to
keep the Law or to get it changed.
There will be a very strong section,
chiefly the mercantile, though not
all of it, which will, try either to

to be broken, or will work co get the

not immediately to do at thib point;
though ot course we have our own
opinion on that; but it is most im-
purt.ut that the Sunday break in
li.,uur be prei'rved to the commuiuni-
ty. It uas been encroached upon of
late years; and here is a rallying
point to stop this tendency. Let the
people not be deowived, these things
berin very quietly and trivially. It
is when they are fully grown that
their tyranny is felt. It is only
when a people have lost or nearly
lost the Sunday break and rest
that they feel the harm and
the burden. Canada the foremost
British Colony of the day wisely
enforces Sunday laws. Every Min-
ister in the land should support
the cause, and thoughtful citizens
should rally to it, whether or not the
religious claims of Sunday appeal to
them. There will be much talk of
business interests suffering. As a
matter of fact they will not suffer in
any material way, when once they set
themselves to adjustment with the
new requirement. But even if they
did suffer, the good of the entire
community, the benefit of the ermy
of toilers must stand first. Of course
reasonable men will recognize that
emergencies may arise when it is
neenary to work on Sunday ; but
each) instance should be treated on
ts erits, and with the greatest
caution. Let the habit grow and
root itself, and the peoples' weekly
rest will very soon be stolen, and the
strain fall heavy on their natures
physical and mental. For oar part
and our ideas on the subject are clear
definite, and decided, and we express
them unhesitatingly, The Sunday
rest is a communal treasure that the
greedy hands of Commerce must not
be allowed to steal.

Glasgow, Nov. 19--The most terrible
fire that has occurred in Britain for many
earo broke out bhis morning in a cheap
dodging house for men in Watson Street,
and resulted in the loss of 39 lives and
severe injurlee to 32 other persons, _
Tbe flames were first noticed at six on
the fourth floor. The balding was oc-
cupied by 330 men. An alarm was raised
and the firemen were speedily in attend
ance, but flames and smoke were then
issuing from most of the windows on the
An extraordinary scene was created by
a procession of almost naked men issuing
from the door of the building, and against
their frantic efforts to escape, the firemen
had to fight for admission.
Reaching the upper floor the firemen
found the narrow passages were becoming
congested with men who dropped to the
floor overcome by smoke.
Fortunately the fire was confined to
the fourth floor, and as soon as the fire-
men were able to Met to work it was
speedily extinguished.
T-e flaiues had been fed by the wood-

of this branch was due to mismanage-

The Association is now well officered and
we have hopes of its steady growth. Mr.

should make it possible to be present as
very important business has to be tran-

arrangements be made against the date.

the report may be put into the hands of

by having us make the correction with a
view to having as correct a list of mem-
bers as possible.
There is another thing in connection
with compulsory attendance *ith which
we desire to deal. And this from the
teacher's standpoint. It is an open secret
that certain teachers desire earnestly to
see it come about, because in their
opinion it will increase the payments to
the school. But they seem to have over
sighted what was said at a certain Board
Meeting that the object of these
proposals was to save money. Far-
ther it ought to be clear that if the
money now spent on elementary educa-
tion is barely sufficient, as those who
are competent to judge continually as.
sert, how will satisfctory payment bd
made when three times as many children
are brought into the schools and with a
similar amount to meet the demand. If
tVe matter is to be faithfully adjusted
the increased numbers must have an in-
crease of staff in the schools calling for
an increase of salaries; but since there
will not be enough meney in proportion
to the numbers, it is clear that the teach
era' income must be reduced. For example,
if a school now earned 60 for the pria-
cical teacher. 20 for an assistant, and t

upil teacher, when three times the num-
br of scholars attend, it there is not an
increase of grant, it is clear that the sala
ries of the teachers must be reduced,
asinoe there must be an increase of staff to
get through the work. Those teach iers
who are praying for compul .i(n without
first seeing the detail a of the scheme are
very unwise. The Code will have to be
revised. The Curriculum must be educoed,
for it not the result will be mean and

small. And when these and other things
are considered we fall to see how anythia
like increase of pay will come to the
teachers. Though we may not all be ex-
cellent writers of the English language
we should all try to understand it when
we see it in print, and what we have
read of compalsion is sufficient to let
us understand that there is not go-
ing to be a penny farthing of gain to

the teachers but on the :contrary a tre.
mendsous loss We have seen too many
things, pronounced to be satisfactory, re*
sult in utter dissatisfaction ; and we have
been denounced f.)r many statements
which soon became true. When Article
144 of the Code was introduced, because
we pointed out the fallare in it, we wtre
thought by some to be losing our heads.
When Article 118.was introduced and we
pointed out the loss, some people said
that for the life of them they could not
see what we were fretting over. But as
soon as the articles were put into force
every ones eyes were op med to the loss
to be sustained. But is was too late.
We are not opposed to compulsion to
commence at the lower ages, but we fear
that compulsion of the higher ages will do
much harm. Oar life in the schoolroom
makes as know this. And though it uay
be thought a very excellent thing to agree
with others in saying that no child of an-Y
class whatsoever should be kept from
cschonl WA still wav that there is a certain.

class which should be kept to themselves
for a time at least, thus giving them an
opportunity to improve their morals if
possible. We do not speak from a senti-
mental point. We speak from a factative
point. We will have circumstances
against as, and greater difficulties to con
tend with here because of the different
classes ia the community. And then this
must not be forgotten : We cannot fight
against circumstances, and we c.uanot
fight up hill all the time.
General Secretary.
St. Michael's School,

i- m
(It should be noted that whatever was
said by any one speaker, at any one part
of his speech, before the Board of Edu-
cation, the object of introducing Compul-
sion is not to save money. How could it
possibly be. Its object is to get more chil
dren under school influence and educa.
tional training. Regarding the -finan-
cial side of the matter, what is the
object is to start with a method of Corn .
pulsion that will prevent the expenditure
for the present exceeding 60,000. As it
does not at present reach 60,000, it is
clear that Compulsion cannot save'
money. It is a mistake to setre on a
single expression at such meetings aa indi-
cating the intention in formulating a mea-
sure.That is to be sought nl the duly ad-
opted resolutions of the whole Board, and
in these we fail to see any such indication
as is alleged above. A continual attitude
of suspicion and distrust is as much to be
depreciated when shown from teachers
towards the* authorities as from the
authorities towards the teachers.
We have a preat opinion of the
J. U. T. and are s staunch supporters
but our support is never partisan, and we
hope that the discussion will not be taken
to the low plane of presuming that the
question of higher or lower salaries is the
all in all, in other words to the plane of
Much that Mr. Smith says above is
forceful in its proper relation. It Is irre-
levant here. Even If it were granted
that for a time the introduction of Com-
palsion would Increase the Teacher's
labours though not his pay, does he
mean to say the Teachers are to oppose
it on that account ? Is the plea, in a pro.
fession that is e entially so altruistic. to
be selfishness pare and simple? We
must begin Compulsion and we must be.
gin it as well as we ean. From the
beginnmn we will go.on to perfection it,
and surely the Teachers have sufficient

and Government to abide the evolution,
and not to suspect hat their interests
will be negleered. There matd be -a

As regard*l the undesirable children '
we simply refer to hat we said last week,

Thbt is sound truth. If schools are not
efficient to convert the conventionally
' undeniable' into the desirable they
are not efficient as regard. one of their
main purposes; and one of the chief rea
sons is gone why we and others of our way
of thinking support the demand for educa
tion so fully and emphatically. We repeat
that the State has no children 'undesir-
able' in the sense of reqniring their ex.

clusion from the schools. The view that
Mr. Smith takes shows tht he has been
affected unconsciously by the pernicious
influence of Payment by Results When
its tyranny over reason and conscience is
broken in the land we will see the truth
and err.br ee it, that has made the edo-
cariouur policy in Cinsad, Buiaiin and the
rStates so broad and effective. rhe bug-
bears that seem so terrible to Mr. Smith
had to be faced and slain there, and they
have been slain.
We are unaware what particular force
is given above to 'sentimental'; but
it is evidently intended as a snaer.
That is a pity we think. How-
ever, it will be sufficient to reply that we
are not sentimental' over this matter,
taking the term as it is often used. Why
should we be ? Our view is very practi-
cal and very simple; as Mr. Smith ex
presses it, it is also 'factative.'

proaches this subject with calmness and

is admirable, but let us avoid a continual

I took them and sat down, and just
then the ],uter d,,)r slammed with a
violence c:.'reliely usual.
I had never seen Mr. Royce. our jun
lor, so deeply shaken, so visibly dis-
tracted, as he was when he burst in
upon us a moment later, a newspaper
In his hand. Mr. Graham. startled by
the noise of his entrance, wheeled
around from his desk and stared at
him in astonishment.
"Why, upon my word, John," he be-
gan. "you look all done up. What's
the matter?"
"M.itter enough. sir." aid Mr. Royce

bling finger the article which occupied
the first column of the first page, the
place of honor.
I saw our senior's face change as
he read the headlines, and he seemed
positively horror stricken as he ran
rapidly through the story which fol-
"Why, this is the most remarkable
thing I ever read!" he burst out at last.
"Remarkable!" cried the other. "Why,
It's an outrage, sir! The idea that a
gentle, cultured girl like Frances Hol-
laday would deliberately murder her
own father, -strike him down in cold
blood, is too monstrous, too absolute-
ly preposterous, too-too"- And he
stopped, fairly choked by his emotion.
The words brought me upright in my
chair. Frances Holladay accused of-

But Mr. Graham was reading through
the article again more carefully, and,
while he nodded sympathetically to
Slho'i that he fully assented to the
others words, a straight, deep line of
perplixity, which I had come to recog-
aie, formed between his eyebrows.
"Plainly," he said at last, "the whole
case hinges on the evidence of this man

and from what I know of Rogers I
should say that he'd be the last man
in the world to make a willful mis-

"No. I'd like to hax e a goatd man with

"Can you spare me Lester?"
My heart gave a juinl). It was just
the question I was hoping he would
"Why, yes, of course," answered the
chief readily. "In a case like this,
certainly. Let me hear from you in
the course of the day."
Mr. Royce nodded as he started for
the door.
"I will. We'll find some flaw in that
fellow's story, depend upon it. Come
on, Lester."
I snatched up pen and paper and fol-
lowed him to the elevator. In a mo-
Imeilt we were in the street. There
were cabs in plenty now, disgorging
their loads and starting back uptown
again. We hailed one, and in another
moment were rattling along toward
our destination with such speed as the
storm permitted. There were many
questions surging through my brain to
which I should have welcomed an an-
swer. The storm had cut off my pa-
per that morning, and I regretted now
that I had not made a more determined
effort to get another. A glance at my
companion showed me the folly of at-
tempting to secure any information
from him, so I contented myself with
reviewing what I already knew of the
history of the principals.
I knew Hiram W. Holladay, the mur-
dered man, quite well, not only as ev-
ery New Yorker knew that multimil-

lionaire as one of the most successful
operators in Wall street, but personal-
ly as well, since he had been a client

and more. lie was at that time well

bringing the black eyed child with her,
and within the yeagj was dead.

Holladay's affections from that mo-
ment seemed to grow and center about
his daughter, who developed into a
tall and beautiful girl-too beautiful,
as was soon apparent. for our Junior
partner's peace of mind. HIe had met
her first in a business way, and after-
ward socially, and all of us who hid
eyes could see how he was eating his
heart out at the knowledge that she
was far beyond his reach, for it was
evident that her father doomed her
worthy of a brilliant marriage-as in-
deed she was. I sometimes thought
that she held herself at a like value,
for though there was about her a con-
stant crowd of suitors none of them
seemingly could win an atom of en-
couragement. She was waiting, I told
myself, waiting; and I had even pi--
tured to myself the grim irony f" a
situation in which our junior uj;:;:t

The clerk hurried away with the

We followed him across the room
and through a door at the farther side.
"Ah. Mr. Royce, glad to see you."
cried the coroner as we entered. "We
tried to find you last night, but learned
that you were out of town, and I was
just calling up your office again."
"Miss Holladay asked for me, then?"
"Yes. at once. When we found we
couldn't get you, we suggested your

but lby 5 o'clock we had closed up
work for the day, and all the other
clerks, with the exception of the office

notes from Mr. Holladay's dictation
and had returned to my desk to ar-
range them when the outer door open-

I felt rather than heard the little
stir which ran through the room. There
was an indefinable horror in the story
and in the conclusion to which it in-
evitably led.
"Now. let us go back a moment," said
the coroner as Rogers stopped and
mopped his forehead feverishly. "I
want the Jury to understand your story
thoroughly. Mr. Holladay had been
dictating to your.'
"And was quite well?"
"Yes; as well as usuaL He'd been
suffering with Indigestion for some

"Still he was able to attend to busl-

'Oh, yes, sir. There was nothing at

"You theP left his office and returned

there flore the outer door opened?"*
"Not over five minutes."

Rogers hitched impatiently in bhi
"I glanced at her as I always do,"
he said. "I didn't stare."
"But you're quite sure It was Miss
Holladay ?"
"Absolutely sure, sir. Do you sup-
pose I'd minke an aonertion like that if
I wasn't absolutely sure?"
"No." said the coroner soothingly.
"No. I don't suppose any such thing,
not for a moment, Mr. Rogers. only I
want the jury to see hbow certain the
Identification is. Shall 1 proceed?"
"G;o ahead, sir," said Rogers. "I'll
try to hold myself together a little
-better, sir."
"I can see what a strain this is for
you," said tue coroner kindly. "and I'll
spare you as much as I can. Now,
after Miss Holladay entered the inner
office, how long did sheet remain there?"
"Albout ten minute:. I should say.
Not longer than that. certainly."
"Did you hear any oound of conver-
sation or any unusual noise of any
kind ?"
".No, air. It would have been a very

unusual noise to be audible. Mr. Hol-

laday's office has heavy walls and a
double door which completely shut off
all sounds from within."
''Miss Holladay then :icnme out?"

"No, sir; I didn't notice. I Just
glanced up and bowed. In fact, I
didn't see her face at all, for she had
lowered her veil."
"Her veil!" repeated the coroner.
"You hadn't mentioned that she wore
a veil."
"No, sir; when she came into the of-

Text of the Lesson, Neb. Iv, 7-20.
Memory Versem, 19, 20-Golden Text,
Matt. xxvi, 41-Commentary Pre-
pared by Rev. D. M. Stearns.
[Copyright, 1905, by American Pres Asociation.]
The life of Nehemiah illustrated the
meaning of his name, "The Coufort of
Jehovah," for in the midst of all his
difficulties and discouragements-and
they were very many-he did find his
joy and strength in the Lord. Having
returned to Jerusalem, accompanied by
captains of the army and horsemen
and with authority to obtain what was
necessary to rebuild the wall of the
city, he spent three days quietly inves-
tigating before he told the rulers of
the Jews or the priests what he had
cqpe for. It is wise as a rule not to
talk to others about your affairs, but it
is always safe to consult Him who
sends you about everything anrd th,'ni
do w hitfrv*r It, 1 t"ay-s Prov. iii, G:
John ii, 'i. It j- is instru tive to intr
.Nehemiah journeying with an es.nrt
and Ezra without one, and God was
with each of them. In the New Testa-
ment story Barnabas sold his property
and put the money in the trees .,
while his sister Mary kept hers id
made it a house of prayer. We ;t
not follow others, however wise ai-d
good their ways may be, but follow
"Jesus only." Our hand in His and
our whole being at His disposal, we
should say, as Nehemiah did: "The God
of heaven, He will prosper us." "Our
God shall fight for us" (11ii, 20; iv, 20).
The adversary is always grieved when
any one becomes specially in earnest
in the Lord's work, and he will do his
utmost to hinder, but there must be
neither fear nor compromise on the
part of the servants of God. All that
is required of us are a mind to work
and a readiness for any manner of
service, and then God will surely ac-
complish His pleasure. Observe that
those who built this wall were gold,
smiths, merchants, apothecaries, worn
en, etc. (iii, 8, 12, 32), most unlikely
people to build a stone wall, but be-
cause they had a mind to work and
God was with them they prospered,
and the work was finished in spite of
all their enemies, and God was glori-
fied. Because the work was done by
those who naturally had no talent for
such work their enemies had to con-
fess that the work was wrought of
God (vi, 15, 16).
We must never forget that there are
always enemies s-eeking to injure us
and to hinder the work-in fact, a
great adversary seeking to destroy us-
and we must ever watch and pray as
did these builders (7-9). See Jas. iv,
7; I Pet. v, 8, 9; Eph. vi, 10-18; Mark
x1ii, 33-37. When there are weak and
jliscouraged ones among the Lord's
L sown whose motto seems to be, "We
are not able" (10), matters are worse
than if there were only Vnemies with-
out. Such were the ten spies because
of whom all Israel hbeame disconir-

aged and were kept In the wilderness
many years (Num. xill, 31-33). Our
motto should always be, "Our God is
able" (Dan. ill, 17), or, as in verse 14 of
our lesson, "Be not ye afraid; remem-
ber the Lord."
God will always bring to naught the
counsel of the adversary (verse 15). but
His own counsel standeth forever, the

thoughts of Vis heart to all genera-
tions (Ps. xxxiii, 10, 11). See also Isa.
viii, 9, 10, concerning His counsel and
the breaking in pieces of the adver-
sary, and take comfort from Isa. xli,
12, 18. "They that war against thee
shall be as nothing and as a thing of
naught. for I, the Lord thy God,* will
hold thy right hand, saying, Fear not;
I will help thee." The words "every
one unto his work" (verse 15) make us
think of the words of our Lord in Mark
xiii, :34. "To every man his work," and
I for. xii. 11, "To every man severally
as He will." for we are taught in Eph.
Ii, 10, that all good works of all be-
lievers are prepared beforehand for us
to walk in, and also that "it is God
who wonrkth in un both tn will ltud to

do of His good pleasure," and that
apart from Him we can do nothing
(Phil. ii, 13; John xv, 5). From the
fact that the wall began and ended at
the sheep gate (iii, 1. 32) we gather the
suggestion that whatever work is not
lI'unI. continuedd ,aind ended in and by
Hlin w7ho was lcd ua T a l t l to, the
hIilghitr. and Ilnii, by those who are
redeemed with His precious blood, will
not count. From chapter iii. 127, 29,
we learn that we are to do the work
that is nearest to us, however lowly it
may be, "every one over against his
house," or as elsewhere, "Whatsoever
thy hand findeth to do," "For any
manner of service, wholly at His
commandment" (Eccl. ix, 10; I Chron.
xxvill, 21). While some builded, others
held the weapons, and even the build-
ers had their swords girded upon them
(verses 16-18). Our whole life is a
warfare against the world, the flesh
and the devil, and Eph. vi, 10-18, is
the only way. For the many who are
compelled to wait or tarry by the stuff
while others work there is a word of
great comfort in I Sam. xxx, 24. The
workmen, being far separated one from
the other, were to be ever listening for
the sound of the trumpet (verses 18-201,
so we, girt about with truth and with
the sword of the Spirit, are to be ever
listening for the trumpet of I Thess.
iv, 16, which shall end the present age,
or at least proclaim It near, by the
fact that the church has been com-
These builders certainly worked a
full labor day. "from the rising of the
morning till the stars appeared" (verse
21), but we are not working full time
unless by a prayerful or financial In-
terest. or both, in some missionary on
the other side of the globe, who works
.while we sleep, and vice versa, we are
earnestly living to complete the church.
