The British Census.

process of having its population enum
erated by the government. A time was
appointed for the head of every house

The census this year is the fifth im-

No doubt similar difficulties will again j

the population of the empire will go

The work in Canada is, of course, un
der the supervision of the Dominion
government, which pays its army of
enumerators a small sum for every
name collected. It will occupy about
one month to complete the count in
Canada, except in some of the more
difficult districts of the west and Brit
ish Columbia. It is thought the results
will be ready for publication, however,
by the middle of summer. The census
figures of the Dominion are awaited
with especial interest, for it is believed
that Canada will show by far the great
est proiortional increase in population
of any part of the empire.

A' Mandarin and a Mummy By Clarissa Mackie.

Paul Hunting ducked bis bead from
the fierce onslaught of the November
gale and ran quickly up the wide stone
steps that led to the old fashioned
house where he had his bachelor apart
ment. Once within the warm red
lighted hall its genial . atmosphere
seemed to infold him like a crimson
mantle. He was mounting tbe red
carpeted stairs with lingering back
ward glances into the hall below when
one of the tall mahogany doors opened
from tbe parlor and a head was thrust
forth and then hastily withdrawn as
the owner's eyes met Paul's startled
glance of admiration.
The door closed softly and there was
nothing for Paul to remember save a
vision in pale blue, with a crown of
golden hair and a pair of the most
heavenly blue eyes he had ever seen.
As he fitted a key into his own door
he wondered who the girl might be.
There were two other bachelor apart
ments besides his own. while the Ma
sons, who owned tbe house, occupied
the entire lower part. Terbaps the girl
was some relative of that elderly
couple, but he had never dreamed of
associating the rather dried and mum
mified Masons with such a bright,
He had snapped on the electric lights
and was standing before his mantel
piece as his thoughts found utterance.
"She Is the loveliest creature I have
ever seen," he said slowly.
The little Chinese mandarin on the
mantel suddenly nodded approval in
the most uncanny fashion. Paul .stared
for an Instant, and then he realized
that there was a heavy vehicle rum-

the mandarin quizzically as the head
nodded violently in the affirmative.
"Drat that passing dray! So you do
know a better fellow, eh? Well, out
with it who is he?" He leaned for

fingers to the hot coals and looked up

Then, to his unutterable astonish
ment, his question was answered in
Just the high, thin, reedy voice one
might expect from a Chinese mandarin
who sits on a shelf all day long.
"Why, Penlow is a most estimable
young man, my dear. He's superin
tendent of a Sunday school and libra
rian of the Culture club and"
"Penlow! Well, of all the mollycod
dles!" Paul's disgust got the better of
his astonishment at finding his man
darin endowed with speech. "If you
admire Penlow's sort, why, I'll give
you to him tomorrow! Poof!" He
lighted a pipe and leaned back in his
chair, drawing slowly through the
stem while he surveyed the now vio
lently agitated mandarin.
"Don't know your own mind; that's
what's the matter with you. Wa
Shing! Now you're saying 'Yes and
then the other thing. When the trafile
ceases you'll settle down and go to
sleep like the funny old beggar you
are, eh?" .
"I'm surprised. Paul," nodded the
mandarin, his thin voice growing
peevish "I'm surprised at your taste.

man and pays his rent regularly, but
so far as I know he doesn't attend any
church. In fact. I know be lies abed

"Rubbish. Paul! It's most indelicate
to speak of Mr. Penlow in that man
ner. I shall take especial pains tbtt
yon do not meet the young man yon
orofess to admire. In my day"
A phonograph in the room overhead
suddenly blared into activity, and tLe
mandarin's voice was drowned in the
chaos of baad music that followed,
but he continued to nod wisely while
Paul gazed back at him wkh puz
"Mighty queer, diiicennected ort of
conversation yon bold, Wa Shing," L
expostulated, reaching up for the or
nament and holding it close to the
light. "How do yon manage that
talkee-talke business? Your Lead
seems bo flow, but of course that's no
criterion that your vocal organs may
not be in good working order. What is
it they say ab nt empty yessels mak
ing the most noise? I rather guess
I've been asleep !" yawned Mr. Hunt
ing, in conclusion, as he returned the
mandarin to the shelf, where he con
tinued to nod foolishly for several
minutes. "Lost your power of speech,
eh? Good for youP
He leaned back with closed eyes and
immediately forgot all about the man
darin and his strange conversation,
which he firmly believed to be the re
sult of a short nap. In his fancy Paul
found an occupant for the other large
chair beside his hearth. It would be
somebody gowned in pale bine, with a
fluff of golden hair and a pair of for
getmenot eyes. Where had he seen
Just such a face before?
Suddenly he leaned toward his desk
and opened a drawer. He fumbled
there for awhile, tossing aside papers
and pictures with furious zeal until he
brought forth a small photogravure of
an ideal head. He propped it against
the pedestal of the electrolier and stud
led it silently.
At last he drew a deep breath. "So
wonder her face seemed familiar," be
said in a low tone. "If she didn't pose
for this picture I'm a sinner, and. fool
that I am, I never tried to find out the
artist! I was just satisfied to be in
love with her without discovering her
name. How In thunder can I get to
know her? For I must even if I hold
old Mason at the revolver's mouth and
demand an introduction." He stared
intently into the coals of fire, and for
several moments there was dead si
lence in tbe room and without. Even
the shrill complaining of the wind bad
ceased for awhile.
Then there came a piercing scream
from the room underneath, a terrified
cry for help, and there was the sound
of running feet across a floor.
It was the work of an Instant for
Hunting to open his doors and reach
the staircase. Afterward he remem
bered that his slippered feet only
touched three stairs in descent. Then
ac pushed open the parlor door and
met an appalling sight.
One of the long lace curtains at the
windows was fiercely blazing, while
the girl with the golden hnir was try
ing to tear it down with tho little
desperate, shrinking hands.
As Hunting came through the door
the blazing curtain fell to the carpet,
and as tbe girl tried to stamp out the
charring remnants her own soft voile
gown Ignited and the flames swept
It was then that Tanl nuntin
snatched up a white fur rug from the
floor and, throwing it around the girl,
crushed out the flames before they
reached her hands or face or even
burned much of her gown. At last
she lay in his arms, limp and white
as the rug that enveloped her.
"I'm all right now, thank you," she
said in a soft voice.
She released herself from Hunting's
arms, and the white rug dropped to the
floor, revealing tbe skirt of her pretty
gown scorched and charred.
She held out a hand to her rescuer
with a charming smile. "This gentle
man has saved my life. Cousin Le
ander. Will you and Cousin Sarah add
your thanks to mine"
"Bless me, child, it's Mr. Hunting
from upstairs! I thought it was Pen
low. Your hand, Mr. Hunting!" The
mummy extended a dry brown paw.
and Paul's strong fingers closed around
it, while his head swam dizzily as tho
old man's voice rambled on in a mo
notonous spee'i of gratitude, for tho
voice of Mr. Leander Mason was like
the voice of the mandarin, high and
thin and piping in quality.
Cousin Sarah Btopped'ncrenroing and
gave another dry hand into Hunting's
grasp and made a prim little speech.
Paul Hunting and the golden haired
girl looked at each other across tho
