Railway, part of W. 32-6-19 W. 4 in the centre of the great Southern Alberta Grain Belt No success fui business man ever turns down a proposition without due con- sideration. Putting your money in hanks is not an investment.

Stirling is located about 19 of Lethbridge and is now an important railway centre. It is also expected that the Weyburn exten- sion will run to this point. The lots in this desirable townsite are all high and dry, and all good sized building lots. The title is perfect, and can be secured at any time upon final payment of purchase price. The lay-out of STIRLING is ideal, with main streets 100 feet wide and a lane running back of each block 20 feet wide. Prices range from for business lots down to for residential lots, on terms of 1-4 cash, balance 3, 6 and 9 months, withiuterest at 6 per cent. For full particulars write or call on DR.

Company. The gaunt clerk uls chin well covered with his great muffler; the broad collar of his ulster was tunned up about hte face. The rapid plan, that dashed into his mind comprehended but two things, the effort to restore life to Frances Cable and the of escaping without being recognized. Ha folt that she had not been in the water long enough to divwa., Every hope de- pended upon the force of the blow that he imagined had been delivered. Chilled to the borie, his teeth chat- tering like castanets, the old man was stooping over the inanimate form on the ground when the two men came up. In answer to their startled ques- tions he merely said that he had seen the struggle from across street, but had been too late to prevent the tragedy. "We must get her into one of these houses he grunted, "Take hold of her. you.

A great of relief crept over mm as he" listened to the young man's story; bis eyes blinked with satisfaction. He was forgetting his own remark of a minute ago that he was freezing and must get Into some dry-dotbes at once. The young man was saying: "It happened right out there by tbe sea the big break is.

Of one thing he evidence of these two men would prove that be bad acted as a valiant protector and not as a thug, a fear which had not left his mind until now. They had seen the fleeing asaallant, but there was only one person who could identify him. That person was Frances -.Cable, -thf victim. If it was not James Bansemer, then who could it have been?

The officer gasped, and there Is no tell- ing what might have happened if the captain and a swarm of bluecoats had not appeared ou the scene at that mo- ment Two minutes later they were off scouting the lake front In search of the mysterious holdup man.

The probable solution had come to Droom like a fiash. As he hurried up the street his mind was, full of the theory. He scarcely could wait for the door of David Cable's house to be opened in response to his vigorous ringing. The maid. announced that Mr. and Mrs. Cable were out It was enough for Droom. He put the puzzlfr together in that instant David Cable's face-was the one he seen, not James Bansemer's. The maid-set up a hysterical shrieking when he bluntly told her of the mishap to her mistress, but he did not ws it to answer ques- tions. He off .to find James Banse.

What -he said to James -Bansemer on that mem- orable occasion need not be repeated. [t is only necessary to say that hia host was bitterly impressed and will- to admit thut the developments might prove serious. They could only speculate as to what bad transpired between and his wife out there by "the sea wall, but It was enough for-them "to know that a crisis waa at hand. "We'll see-what the morning papers say about the Bansemer, uneasy and cold.

He grinned appreciably over the share of glory" to him', and he actually cac- ded over developments In the great mystery. -He bad. observed with relief that the name of James Bansemer was not mentioned. The reports from tbe bed- aide of-tbe robber's victim were most optimistic. She was delirious from the effects of tbe shock, but no serious re- sults were expected.

She had been true to him, and yet he had taken her life, the life she had given him! He gave no: thought to Jace. no thought to Bansemer. He thought only of him- self as the slayer. Would her .body be recovered? What would be his excuse, what his punish- ment? The gallows? A thousand hor- rors ran riot in his brain, a-thousand each.
