mHE building of the Swan Creek
church made a sensation, and
BDnSjl all the more that Bronco Bill
SsBwJ was In command.
"When I put up mono}' I stay with
tho game," he announced; and stay he
did. to the great benefit of the work
and to the delight of the Pilot, who was
wearing Iiis life out trying to do sev
eral men's work. It wos Bill that or
ganized the gangs for hauling stone for
tho foundation and logs for the walls.
It was Bill that assigned the various
jobs to those volunteering service. To
Bobble Muir and two stalwart Glen
garry men from the Ottawa lumber re
gion, who knew all about the broad*

logs that formed the walls. And when
they had done, BUI declared they were
"better 'an a sawmill." It was Bill,
to<>. that did the financing, ahd Ida
passage with Williams, tho storekeeper
from "the other side" who dealt In
lumber and building material, was such
as established forever Bill's reputation
With the Pilot's plans in his hands
he went to Williams, seizing a time
when the store was full of men after
their mall matter.
"What do you think of them plant?"
he asked innocently.
Williams was voluble with opinions
and criticism and suggestions, all of
which wen- gratefully, even humbly,
"Kind of hard to figger out jest how
much lumber '11 go into the shack,"
said Bill. "Yo see, the logs makes a
To Williams the tiling was simplicity
itself, and, after some flgurtng, he
handed Bill a complete statement of
the amount of lumber of all kinds that
would bo required.
"Now, what would that there come
Williams named his figure, and then
Biil entered upon negotiations.
"I ain't no man to beat down prices.
No. sir; I say give a man his figger.
Of course, this here ain't my funeral;
besides, being a gospel shop, the price
naterally would be different." To this
the boys all assented and Williams
"Jn fact," and Bill adopted his public
tone, t<> Ill's admiration and Joy, "this
hero's a public Instltooshun" (this was
Williams' own thunder), "condoocin* to
the good of the community" (HI
slapped his thigh and squirted half
way across the stoic to signify his en
tire approval), "and I cherish the opin
ion" (delighted chuckle from Hi) "that
public men are Interested in this oon
"That's so! Ulght you are!" chorused
tho boys gravely.
Williams agreed, but declared ho bad
though! of all this In making his cal
culation. Bin, Hoeing It was a church,
atiil the first church and their own
church, be would make a cut, which
he did after nunc figuring, Bill grave
ly took the slip of paper and put it
into bis pocket without a word. By tho
end of the week, having In the mean
time ridden into town and interviewed
the dealers there, Bill sauntered Into
tho Btoro and took up his position re
mote from Williams.
"You'll bi> wanting that sheeting,
won't you, next week, Bill?" said Wil
"What sheet In" 's that?"
"Why. for the church. Ain't the

"1 generally malm it my custom to
Stick to my deals," Bald Bill, looking
straight at Williams.
"Well, what about your doal with
me hist Monday night?" said Williams
'Lot's gee: i.ast Monday night!"
said Bill, apparently thinking baok.
"Can't say as I remember any pertlck

No ono could recall any deal.
"You don't remember getting any pa

"Tnper: Why, I believe I've got that

estimate, lb- spent a few moments in
"There ain't no deal on to this as I
can see," said Bill, gravely passing the
paper (0 the hoys, w ho each xo/utlniaed
it and passed It on, with a tfhako of the
head or a remark as to the absence of
any sign of a deal. Williams changed
his tone. For his part, b? was indif
ferent In Mio matter.
Then Bill made him an offer.
"Of course I believe In supportln'
home grown Industries, and if yon eab
touch my fK'gcr I'd be uncommonly

Hut Hill's ligure, which was qiilte BO
pur cent lower than Williams' host ot

"Thought I'd make you the offer,"
Bald BUI carelessly, "8Coiut as you're

During these weeks there was more

his home and where Hill, since the be

come "to camp." Those were great

THE SNIPE'S DRUMMING.
A Nnturnllat's Theory mm to How tlic
Sonii.l l.s Produced.
It Is disputed whether tho snipo'a
drumming a curious noise, suggestive
of a miniature thrashing machine is
made by the bird with its wluga or by
Its toll or by both wings and tall.
Some recent observations incline mo
strongly to believe that the tail plays,
at any rate, tlK> more important part.
During the performance the bird Hies
at a great height round and rotlli I in
a wide, sweeping circle. At intervals
he makes a sudden and rapid descent,
holding his wings partly Hexed and his
tail spread to Its fall extent. The nut
ennost tall feather on either side points
outward at a greater angle than those
adjoining It, so that when the bird is
watched through a good Held glass day
light shows between It ami the next,
and, If I am right In my view, tho
drumming sound Is duo to the rush of
nlr ngalnst this Isolated feather. The
snipe's toll feathers soem so puny that
It Is at first difficult to bellovo that
they con produce so gretQr a result. Hut
If an outer one be token - it Is slightly
selmlter shaped, with tho outer wob
much reduced - - and swung rapidly
through the air the drumming nolso
may be distinctly heard, though It
scorns but o very faint echo of tho
loud, throbbing hum that stortles one
when It suddenly descends from nn
ethereal height, and the small bird Is
descried, hardly more than a speck to
tho naked eye, circling round In wild
career and now ond then swooping
headlong downward and thrilling the

THE LITERARY DETECTIVE.
Hla Hunt la Ono That Add* Spice to
There is a certain typo of literary
man who seems content to take little
part In the struggle of letters beyond
keeping on eyo on his contemporaries
and pouncing down on them every now
and then to accuse them of having
given a meaning to such and such a
word which that word should not pos
sess. It Is strange that the number of
these literary detectives Is not loiger,
for there are few more fascinating oc
cupations than this. It lends a spice
to one's reading. The dullest book In
comes as readable as tho most deftly
written novel. Certain words have lak
en to themselves meanings In the
course of time which they havo no
light to possess. "Phenomenon" Is a
very hardened offender. To use this
word as meaning something "strange"
Instead of sorncth ng "that appears
and Is visible" ie to insure arrest at tho
hands of tho detective. Lately tho
word "temper" has been exposed.
Through long Impunity It hae come to
