The New Serial by the author of "Smoking Flax."

Perhaps the term hero, with its suggestion of high enterprise, sits inappropriately upon the chief character of this tale; there was in Gander Stake little of that quality which is associated with the clash of righteous steel or the impact of noble purpose. Yet that he was without heroic fibre I will not admit, and you who read these pages shall judge whether or not the word is wholly UNWARRANTED.-THE AUTHOR
FOREST SUBTERFUGE 1011

FOREST SUBTERFUGE

Romance ever pursued D’Ancoup and Livarot. On this occasion, it brought in its train desperate hazards by fire, snow and water. But as Legrand said: “It is to become educated, to travel with the Circle of Blood ”

MR. DEPUITREY LEADS

Some men can settle a world war with two teaspoons and a salad fork; others can establish a sound economic policy for a country without moving from a Pullman chair.

“A mucky gash in the earth, like the excavation for a sewer in a new suburban street." That description of the Dome workings at Red Lake does not suggest romance, but it does suggest the spirit in which this article was written.

Co-operation Bears Fruit in B. C.
