The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "Tho Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER XVIir. THE ISAUNTLKT IS CAST. jt was a sultry summer day ; the sun poured down on the pavements with merciless power. The grass in the parks was visibly browning. The busy thoroughfares were crowded in the shade—empty but for a few pedestrians where the sunshine blis tered and frizzled. Gwendolen Halldaru sat o.t her writing-table in her shady drawing room, shady because of wetted tat ties and outside blinds. Lilies and white sweet peas, with ferns, were in the bowls and vases. A little fountain fed with rose-water played in the shaded balcony—ft new idea of hors. Its trickling suggested cool ness, just as in the dining-room bo low the big lumps of ice among ferns not only suggested cold, but tem pered the heat. That day everything connected with I-ord Montamor seemed to her clear as the purest crystal. She was miserable. An active fight was at work within her between the pari of her nature which...

A BOY WHO BECAME A GRKAi SCULPTOR, "The best men," says a writer, whost name I have forgotten, "are not tboBi who have waited for chances, but who nave taken them—besieged the chance, conquered .the chance, and made chance the servitor," an observation which the following story illustrates: A large company had been invited to a banquet at the mansion of Signor Faliero in France, and just before the hour, the confectioner, who had been making a large ornament for the table sent word that he had spoiled the piece. "If you will let me try, X think I cap make something that will do," said a boy, who had been employed as a acul lion. "Yo exclaimed the head-servant, "and who are you?" "I am Antonio Canova, the grandson of Plsano, the stone-cutter," replied the pale-faced little fellow. "And, pray, what can you do?" ask ed the major-domo. "I can make you something that wii: do for the middle of the table if you will let me try." The servant was at his wits' end so he told Antonio to go ahe...

Upper Murray and Itta Herald No Resident of the Dlstriot CAN AFFORD to do without his District Newspaper. It is the only means by which the people of the district can keep in touch with the affairs in which they are personally interested. The City dailies and weeklies are all ivery well for those who wish to koop posted upon affairs of State and of the world. But does not a comparatively trifling event in our own neighbourhood look much larger in our eyes than the downfall of a nation on the other side of the world? The local newspaper that gives all the news of its own Town and District—all the doings of its peoplo and the happenings —is therefore the Newspaper that holds first place in the regard of all who | take a heaJthy interest in their surroundings. In addition to the personal claim the district Newspaper possesses, it gives very real advantages from a business standpoint. Whether in business in the towji or on the land, it is of the utmost importance to have a knowledge bf ...
