AS tt was. the divided garment she wore was torn Into ribbons on tlie horns and one boot was dragged off. It was well that she had fallen to a arm. The effort entailed upon him to keep the saddle and drag the woman free was tremendous, but his strength was as the strength of ten that day and did not fall him. He swept her to his breast at last and held her senseless, but free. He had accomplished the impossible. They were now In the angle formed by the tangent and the circle, and the way was clear before them. He spurred his tired horse, which had done such splendid work, out Into'the open and stopped; He did not dare put the girl down until the cattle bad completely unwound them- selves and the jam had been for he did not know what might oc- cur. Fortune, however, had subjected Miss Benwyck to all the trials de- manded of her that day, for the herd of panting cattle, blindly following new leaders, presently unwound itself and streamed across the prairie, going slower and slower, as the panic Im- pulse subsided almost as quickly as it had arisen. The steer the- accident to which had caused the trouble lay dead where .the vortex had been. The man's companion bad ridden up to him as soon as be could, but the man who held the girl directed him to ride on after the herd lest they get Into trouble again. "She's all right" he "only fainted. You ride after" the bunch; Head 'em off before they leave the I'll look atter the lady. TJ1 follow you presently." With the other's assistance he lower- ed the girl to the "grass and. dismounted himself; Miss Harriet Renwyck was not exactly at her best at that mo- ment She was as white as ft cotton boll where her pallor could be seen for the dust Her glorious black hair ber.

He and his daughter had made a detour, and the wagon, travel- Ing on the chord of the arc, was almost up with him when the stampede came. He raced down the hill toward It shouting the terrible tidings. Cowboys and guides In his outfit galloped up to do exactly what had been done. In a moment they had gathered around the two. "Oh, said the girl as Ren- wyck swung himself from his saddle and dropped on his knees beside her. "Are you safe, my "Perfectly safe, thanks to this gen- tleman." began her father Impressively, "I "Oh, If a said the cowboy "nothing at all.-It was Jnst breaking a -mill.

Foolish dif- ferences had arisen between bun and his father, in which the young roan was generally In the wrong. A recon- ciliation had been effected, however, si short time before the arrival of Mr. Benwyck, and Richard had combined his cattle with some of his father's. It was this joint herd which had near- ly ended the life of Miss Renwyck. The day after the departure of Ja- cob Renwyck and the young lady Rich' ard Williams had saved in so darlnf and romantic a manner the youag man summoned to the ranch by a mes- sage trout his father. Recognising that it was war to the knife between him and his former partner, the Texan laid his plans to bring to his feet the schemers of New York.

He srated thai he proposed holding four auction sales of school lands in Alberta in the near future. One will be held at Lloydminister on June 23rd, when about 125 quarter sections will be sold. The other three will be held in Southern Alberta, one at Pincher Creek, one at M'acleod and one at Lethbridge. These. sales will be held some time during the latter part of June or early in July. The land to be sold in the south includes some quarter sections the greater part of. which is excel- lent land. It lies in the country from range 11, east of the 4th meridian, north to township 12 and west to the Eoeky Mountains.' This area in- cludes several townships, which were taken in lieu of the school land appropriated in the irrigation belt. Much of it is very desirable land. and -should find a. ready sale. The upset price on this property ranges from to per acre, but it is probable that with keen competition at the., sale, much "of iVwill sell from to an acre. The sale of school lands is provid- ing a large revenue for school pur- poses for the province of Alberta, and .at the same .time -enables incom- ing settlers to secure suitable lands at reasonable prices. By the old school act, sections 11 and 29 in every township, in Manitoba and the Northwest Territories were set aside for the maintenance of schools in the West. Tlie proceeds from the ;sale of these lands is retained by the Dominion government in trust and each province secures annually three per cent, interest on this amount credited to. .it. for school purposes. In. Alberta, practically only oqie large sale of school lands has taken place. This was four years ago, when sales were held in. all parts of the province. The proceeds of these were about one million dollars. Mr.. In- gram estimated, roughly, that there were four or five'- million acres of school lands in Alberta yet unsold3 which means, figuring very conser- vatively, that the province will Piano Tuning w. H.
