"I should llke your nice father to be my uncle, but auntie must know and I must try to be like her."

Your feet were made for dancing and"-- "I believe I could learn as easilyP' she exclaimed. "Of course you could," I answered, smiling at her flushed cheeks. "And if you will let me teach you I will you to the charity masquerade week." Delight gasped, but her eyes wen full of longing. "I am going to reason with your aunt," I declared. "She sits in the garden making trou- "Oh, boy, what a fool I've made of myself!" he groaned. "I've proposed to the wrong woman, and she's accepted me! Confound masquerades anyhow!"

"She ought to be making trousers for her own little boy," I muttered as strode out t interview her. Only Two Continents. An Englishman, smoking a pipe, sat in a club car on a western train. There were several traveling men near by. They were discussing themselves and telling how good they were. "I suppose," said one, "that I have about as long a trip as any one in the business. I go from Boston to San Francisco twice a year." "Oh," said another, "I can beat that. I cross the continent twice every year, and I take in Canada." The Englishman listened intently. I He was interested. "By the way," said one of the drummers to him, To my surprise I found the Miss Delight quite susceptible to my arguments. She closed the interview by saying; "But don't let the child know I said so. She will enjoy the pleasure more if she deems it stolen." A strong sentiment indeed for the pretty but austere Miss Delight Dar- ling to hold. As I was dressing for the masquer- "what is your business?"

I was glad, though, to see that he was going into society again. Dtad loved good women in an age of chivalry sort of way, and I hated to see him waste his time on perverse Miss Delight Darling. Later Delight and I, masked and robed, stole down back streets to the charity ball, she turning my father's ring round and round oa my finge, for she held my hand as if It alone could save her from destruction.

The location on the main line of the Great Northern railway insures a market for all manufactured wood products and the fine quality of timber and its cheapness furnish the material. In agriculture the scope is wide and promising. Fruit growingaid handling will yield a large return. Small fruit on a few acres offer op- portunities to people with limited means. Potatoes are very profita- ble. Truck gardening is in de- mand. Butter and eggs always bring good prices. Tbe demand for men in the mills and logging camps is continually increasing. LOOKING AHEAD. For young men the opportuni- ties offered in "Western .Washington are greater than anywhere in the United States.
