Mr. Olivisr. A general Af*nt in londoh in the porson of J'. ,w*i!�or will bo appoint*!. � (V-y Qcorgo Jlydo Preston In Poor-1 son's Magazine) i The train stopped \ a Jolt, llud and I'cHc looked out of '.In window of the ttinokier up the mam street of the town that began at the .station, ami listened to the cried  f "Free 'Ijus to the Atlantic Hotel!" "Free ')>u� �o tho Ureal Western Uo-tell" tlutt and IVte had be�n partner)* off and on for years in dtllererA part* ot the country, but their Arm name OA not appear In any ot tho directories of the Alien where, they operated, tnd they did no advertising. Their bag*, which they kept close at, their feet, wore somewhat heavier than usual, and stowed away among the contents ncro various steel tools, the best of their kind, and similar to may be seen in the polled collections. "This in LHwrtyvlllc," said Hud, squinting through the dunk at the rtg-n in front of tho station. "Our place in about Wty miles from here. Why In thunder don't wo pull out?" ho growled Impatiently. A� he spoke the conductor came through the car, lantern on arm. "Gentlemen," he said, "there "is a bridge burned out about three miles ahead, and wo can't ro any father tonight." Hud looked at Pete. "That settles It." "Sure" nodded Pete. "Lot's >,o back to the city." > "How are we going to got bads'?" growled Mud. "The down train cannot get across tho bridge any mow than we cult.:' "Sure," said Pete. "I guess It's Llbertyvllle for us tonight. And the pair Joined the procession of disgusted and occasionally profane passengers that was filing out of the train. "Free bus to the Atlantic!" "Free 'bus to the flreal Western!" clamored the rival drivers. Dud carefully took an old ' cd big penny out of his pocket and flipped it. "It's the Great Western," he itn-nounced. Pete nodded, and they passed the clamorous Atlantic man without u. glance. The 'bus Jolted clumsily up the street bet wren straggling rows �' frame houses and saloons Act behind a skirmishing line of hitching po.u.i and water trough*, and at Inst twk-tti around with a final Jolt at the front of tho (Ireat Western, an old two-story frame house that seemed to Ivan for support against the spick and spar, new brick bank that stood close up against it. llud and IVito looked at the bui r I with pride. "There ain't anything like It anywhere else In the country. And old Brown built the bank up from nothing. When he,took holt of it, it. didn't have no deposits to speak of, and now .t is bustin' with money." "You have got a pretty fine town here, I guess," went on tho passen  gor with an cyo to a good room. "You bet wo have," answered the landlord, with an approving glance at the speaker. "All the modem Improvements, including a hold-up lost night. We got the fellow, though, hut 1 ain't allowed to vi.v where he is." ho addod with a comprehensive w,nk, "Ijecauso there was considerable talk of lynching, seeing as ho had held up uitc of our most prominent clti/ons nnd hurt him pretty bad. The sheriff ts) going to tai.e him to thn county jail in Mill County, as soon ub ho can got n train Ottt." "Prwtty hard customer �js he?" von lured the passenger. "The sheriff says he .� the toughest ho over seen; but ho has got Mm well guarded. Jim was sheriff in Montany once. And now, gents, I guess I can fix,you nil up for the night, but .you will have to double up a lltilo. Ain't you two gents together?" ho asked, turning to | Hud and Pctu. Umt nodded. "Well, ril rtx you up in a room on tho ground floor, if you are ugraa-atole. Hero. Joe, show these gents So; 6>�nd No. 8. It don't make no difference which. Thoy are the same size." Dud and*Pete topk their tiags, .e. fusing tho boy's oflor to curry them, and followed htm down a hull lo the rear of tho house. No. tt and Xo � weiv opposite each other. .'U^hich w.ll you httvn?" usked the boyi. throwing o|�on the' doors. Dud took out the penny. "It's No. 0." lie said. . Pete nodded und they went into No e placed on Hnr-ncy." the lime we was at the Dan vers bank Job, and on the way there linrney gave us the slip and went off un ti side Job of his own and got nojbbed and when we needed him he wasn't there?" "Yes; there ain't no dependence to be place on Harney," repented �>t I. While tlwy were talking IVte had o|>cned his Img nnd was looking 'it. a curious tool w'llli loving eye. "It's a beaut!" he ejaculated. "What, a pity we can't use It tonight. Say, Hud, why not give thorn a whirl noM door, just to put .n our time?" he grinned persuasively. Hud shook his head, "tt wouldn't work Pete. Wo don't know the lay of tho land." "Well, they �ny the old man has plenty ol the stuff in there, and we could rip up one of them country vauUs like pnper." Hud looked undecided, and mechanically put hs hand In his pocket. "That's right. Hud. flip fur it." And Hud flipped tho penny. ''The coin's agin' HX he announced laconically, and returned it to i>s pocket.. "All right" ncriulesccxi IVte cheerfully. "Let's go eat. and take a look around." Afterdinner they sauntered out. "I'll he Wowed If the darned fool hasn't got Iron shutters closed, tight over all tho hank windows." muttered Pete. "What a snap. Hud. If we was only inside, protected from the public gum by the kindness of i 10 proprhrtor." Uud grinned nnd they walked leisurely around tho block and took a covetous look at the bank from the hack. When they got buck to the Western and went to tho desk for thoir key. the proprietor .mid mean Ingly. "There won't be any mm� hold-ups In Tjhcrtyvillo for a while "Why not?" asked Pete. "Because the hull town is patrolled." he answered with a look of importance. ''You probably did not notice them, hut they are around all the same. Dick Hammond, our town mnrshal, who is an almighty smart fellow, allows there is a gangofthem hold-up chaps around, and he says he ain't iroing to take no chances." When they were air.. Hud said gloomily, ain't no show for us in this 'ere metropolis. I guess the coin flipped us a straight tip." "Sure" grinned IVte. "Ix't'sgo to bed. The fellow down stairs said the train might pull out enr'y. It's blamed hot in here," he ndded and walking over to the window at me side of the room he raised the� "llcllu!" he exclnim-sl. "then1 is a brick wall plumb against ibis window." Ther. he whistled softly. "Say Hud. J his is the wall of the bank. Here is the softvst snap yet. We could go through the wall I ke soup, and then be right in the mU und could work on the vault pro tec- \ tnd from the public gn/.e by them bloomin' shutters. Ain't it rich? If unybody wants to come in here while wc are on tho wall all wo have to do is to pull down the blind, as they say in the song, and be settin" here innocent-like, stu lying the timetable. Air.'t it rich?:' And IVte grinned persuasively at Uud. "Well I dinno," answered Hud. "ct looks easy, and these ensy-lookin/ jobs generally has ten years up their sleeves." "Lot's see what the |ienny has to say, anyway," urged l'ete. "All right. You call it," awl Hud flipped the coin. "I calls tails," cried Pete. The penny struck the floor with a clatter and both men Ijent over tt eagerly. "It's tails!" exclaimed IVte jubilantly. ''Let's gut to;work." "All right" answered Hud. 'Might i well push our lurk when things is coming our way. What time is it?" "Ten o'clock at bt'i watch. i "Plenty of time," exclaimed ;�uU [ Hud e.vatn.ned the door with close [attention. "Drill here, Pete," ho said, plaelng his finger on the spot. Pete plan tod the drill and braced himself. At that moment there came nsharp click, the room was flooded with Aght, and a drawling voice sulci, "Hold on a minute, gents; don't spoil the door. We will open Uiu vault for you." Hud and IVte turi.ed swiftly, and looked along the barrels of a couple of rules Into the grim faces of tho men at the other end of the gu>is. s'Noav, gents," wont on the drawling voice, .which belonged to .the taller of the two men, "Just kindly, put up your har.ds for a minute. Take away thoir arsenals, Hammond' he added to his comrade. "All right, Sheriff," said the mar-shal. relieving them of their weapons. "Vow they nriv harmless us kittens." The Sheriff turned genially, to Bud and IVte. "I was really sorry, boys to stop your work on that door, lie-cause I never had a chance yet lo see first-class artists at work, and I would like to have seen how the trick was done. Hut you sec," lie went on apologetically, "the door is quite expensive and old man Brown would have kicked, nnd, besides. 1 didn't want to put yon boys to too much trouble, for there ain't a cent of money lr: there." Mini looked up ami grunted uriin -telligiblc things. "You sec, boys, tho joke is on ym this lime-this nln't-a bank. This is tho city Jail." "The deuce it is!" growled Hud. "Honest to goodness, boys," said the sheriff. "This building Is Just finished and will lie a bank tomor -row when old man Brown moves in from the old place down tho street but tonight it Is the Jail. The old mar. said, seeing as how the city jail isn't strong enough to hold anybody unless he was dead drunk, ami seeing as how wo had a desper -ate character on our hands in the shape of a hold-up man, that we might use it, as a jail till we could get a train out with our man." "I don't see no man." growled Mud The sheriff walked over to thevauit i jjton CIVIC PUBLICITY. The Monetary 'rimes Hns Some Advice on the Question. Ilnll of the art of making money consists in knowing how to spend money. The miser does not make money. Ho hoards it. Having Is an incomparublo virtue. Hut in .tsolf It is not a constructive method of acquiring wealth. There Is that that ncattercth yet tncreascth. Tho mi -prctno moneymaker Is ho who deposits his gold where an Inferior vision sees-only a place in which to lose it. The prlnc.ple holds good In civic affairs, The Controller who hns only nn eye to saving money may **cp the tax rate down but ho will keep the city down also. The one achievement of Mr. �los Chamlierlalr.'s rm-eor for which all men pralso him, is that he mad', a slum urea In It r minghiun, one of the finest streets in Christendom. He did It by Inducing tho city council to pledge Its credit ror tho purchase of a slum area, to let the land on nlncty-nlnc years building leases and to dictate the quality ot bu.ldlngs to ant.. It was Barney! "The devail!" exclaimed Hud. and he took something from his pocket ami threw It violently through the open door of the vault against the opposite wall. The marshal 1 went across the room and picked It up. "It's a penny!" he sniil with surprise. "It Iooks like thi> first deposit in the new-bank." he luughed. "Well, gents," saVd the sheriff, cheerfully. "Just muke yourselves comfortable in the vault. The mar -��hnl nnd I will sit in the door, sociable like. T ain't got old man Brown's permission to use this for a jail for more than one man; but I guess he won't mind, seeing as how yon boys kind of ir.vited yourselves, leastwise. I'll chance ?t. worxns. imi.isEs and mrnxs. Uy applying an antiseptic dressing to wounds, bruises, burns and like injuries before Inflammation sots in, they "may bo healed without maturation and in about one^thlrd the time required by tho old treatment. This is tho greatest discovery and triumph of modern surgery. Chamberlain's Pain Balm acta on tho same principle. It is an antiseptic and when applied to such injuries, causes them to heal very quickly. It also allays the pain and soreness^ said Pole, looking I und Prev*ntn any danger of hio>l poisoning.

For sale by all druggists. respectable centre of finance, trade and manufactures, containing seventy-five thousand people, seems likc-'y lo double its population within the next four or five years, solely as the result of a brainy campaign of publicity. On another page Is suinimir -Ir.ed the program lakl down for Minneapolis by a New York expert, which would make a Toronto money saving Controller write down such an extravagant horn-blower ns the crar.lest porson alivo. This expert recommends Minneapolis to spend fifty thousand dollars a year for advertising in street cars on bill board* und in similar ways, twenty thous -and for printing and pro1>ably twenty thousund for the manager of the enmpungn. Business men in tlra suite of Washington are. uniting to induce the Legislature to appropriate two hundr.-d thousand for advertising preparatory to tho Alaska Exhibit-Ion of two years hent-u. Kow advertising money can easily be lost. In nothing Is it easier to waste money. In. nothing Is it more necessary to utilize trained intelligence, .f money is to Ira made. The crude methods of n youthful Ifarnum will no more moot the case of today than tho peepshow of lAs childhood would satisfy the exacting and tho somewhat blase* dramatic critic of a groat metropolitan journal. The taxpayer already muttering at the cost of lighting, paving, policing nnd pur ifylng, needs to be assured that his cosh is going into effective channels He must bo satisfied that prospects opened up will bo really prospectel. If he has the faculty of comparison he will not bo slow to distinguish liotween propaganda which tells and that which tells little. He will call for more judicious expenditure, just us surely an he will call down the bungler in spending ai.d tho incompetent in conversing. hour." And taking a couple of short, pointed steal burs from their l>ags, they worked swiftly ami surely, minute after minute. Finally Pete whispered, "Did you hear that? Wu are. nearly through iho wall. That was plaster falling on the bunk door." Hud noddod. "Careful now, Poto We don't want no bricks tumbling down and a ruiripus." Pete put his hand into tho o|>on -ing. "There is a holo plumb through" ho announced. "There ain't a sign of light. The bank is as black as your hat.. A man what puts up shutters,and keeps no light burning ought to be roblied," ho added with conviction. SwiTiiy enlarging the opening th*y soon had a holo big enough for man to go through. Pete thrust his head and shoulders In. aid taking the lighted bull's eye Bud handed him, ho flashed it around tho banking room and on the vault floor, and then nimbly crawled through and dropped to tho floor. "Pull down the blind and come on. Hud" he called buck softly. "It's all r.ght horo and as fpiiet a* a church on Monday." In another moment they worn both in front of the vault door and ar -ranged thitr tools as deftly and methodically as physicians getting ready for an oporation. An Illinois hoy was once asked to write an essay on Masonry, and this is what he wrote: King Solomon was a man who lived so many years in the country that he wis the vhole push. He was an awful wise man. and one day two women came to him each holding to the leg of a baby and nearly pulling it in two and each claiming it. And King Solomon wasn't fooling right good, nnd he said; "Why couldn't tiie brat havo boon twins and stopped this bother?" And then ho called for his machete and was going to Weylerlio tho poor innocent Httlo baby, and give each woman a niece of, it, when tho real mother of the baby said stop, Solomon; stay thy hand.. I^ut the other hag have it. If f can't have a wholo baby I won't havo any. Then Solomon t' to tako tho baby and go and wash Us face, for ho knew it wan hers. Ho told the other woman to go tnd chase herself. King Solomon built Solomon's temple, and was the father of Masons. He had-seven hundred lady friends, and that why there are so many Masons in I lie world. My father says King Solomon was a warm menifber. and I think ho was hot stuff myself. That Is all.I know about. King Solomon. AN AWFUL COUGH CURED. "Two yearn ago our little girl had a touch of pneumonia, which left her with an awful cough. She had spoils of coughing, just like one with the whooping cough and some thought sho would not get well at all. We got a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Itomody, which acted'like a charm. Sho stopped coughing and got stout and,fat," writes Mrs. Ora Hussard, llrubaker, III. This remedy is for sale by all druggists. The first mooting of the commissioners appointed by the western provinces to investigate tho bewf conditions in western Canada v ill Im held in Calgury on November 1. A patron of the telephone system, who was always cross to the centrtl girl, died siwidonly. One girl worried for fear she had been too short with him at limes. Hor worry l�ad her to a dream. She dreamed she hud gone to her colcstrlul homo, and was determined to call up Mr. Blank and apologise to him. She asked St, Potor lor Mr. Blank's number. St. Peter, who is the whole systom, looked at her sorrow-fully and safd: "My dear, a copper wire laid within 0,000 of whore he is would melt in a minute."- Belleville Telescope.
