From all Indications tfio congestion will be as bad as that of the fall and winter of 1006-1907, when whole communities in the Northwest suffered throughout an Icy winter be cause there were no cars to haul coal und business became stagnated because the crops were not moved to market. The rejwrts of increasing car move ments have come in steadily for the last six weeks from all sections of the country. The West and Middle West look for exceedingly heavy grain crops, while the South is expectant of tin greatest tobacco crop In its history and a phenomenal cotton crop. New En gland and the East report factories and mills preparing for a resumption of full-time work. All of these reports in dicate that the demand for transporta tion facilities will be the greatest In years and that centers of production will be glutted while markets are bare. In the opinion of the members of the Interstate Commerce Commission there is no way now open to prevent this damming of the tides of commerce. During the six months ending July 1st less than two hundred thousand ini migrants arrived in the United States. The arrivals In the first half of 1907 were nearly three-quarters of a million. Moreover, in thr past six months the re turning emigrants numbered more than three hundred and seventy-five thou sand, twice the number of immigrants and more than twice the departures for the corresponding period last year. Europeans come to the land of the free because- it is the land of the dollar. When there is a panic, and dollars get scarce, Columbia does not do much business as the haven of the oppressed. The figures of the last two years throw much light on the immigration prob lem. so far as it is a problem of mere aumbers. The flow of newcomers seems to be regulated by the demand for labor, whteh means that the country is not In danger of being glutted with people it cannot support. The recent "revolution" In Mexico deserves attention as an illustration of how small a movement of disorder in orderly Mexico can make a sensation. A generation ago such rioting as took place In the northern part of the re public would have been ignored, as more serious risings were of frequent occurrence. President Diaz has brought order out of the former Mexi can chaos, and the recent troubles amounted to little more than rioting and looting by idle workmen assisted by the criminal population. Many men have been thrown out of employment by the closing of mines and factories, and were wrought upon by political agi tators who are hostile to the presence )f foreigners in the country. The move ment lacked organization and effective leadership, as well as Justification in morals or In political expediency.

"If you wish to speak to me," says •he, "I am ready to hear you. Will you come this way? It is very quiet in the garden. Well!" demands she, facing him. She feels quite safe and full of courage. Some instinct tells her that Hilary, who had so reluctantly obeyed her wish, is •till somewhere near. "Well," repeats he. "Is it well for you? You think you are going to marry that fellow, Adare. You still think he will prove true to you, when be knows that if heroes marry you, his uncle will disinherit him?" "I don't think it," says she, in a dear, Intense voice. "I know it." "I defy you to know it," his breath cominp more quickly. "Until to-night, although I have warned him of it, 3ir Lucien never quite believed that his nephew"—with a contemptuous intona tion—"condescended to admire you!" "Still, I know it," repeats she, coldly. "And as for Captain Adare's not know ing that his uncle would probably dis inherit him if he married me, I teld him so myself. But I need not have done so h« had quite made up his mind about it." "Ah!" furiously, "then you have prom ised to marry him?" "No." Even in this dim light he can, see the sad and grievous expression that clouds her face. "I have refused him." "Refused him!" Deane stands back from her, amazed, incredulous. "This is, a trick," cries he violently. "Cannot you see," cries she, turning upon him in a passion of pain and jrrief. "that I could not marry him? I love him." She presses her hands as if in pain upon her breast. "I love him but with this stain upon my father's m?mory/ I shall never marry him." "You mean," persistently, "that if those jewels are never found you will not marry Adare." "Yes, I have tohi him so," she sighs heavily. Deane breaks into a sudden in solent laugh and then as suddenly grows silent. Something in the very calm of Amber's manner has at Inst convinced him that any hope he has entertained of making her his is at an end. But ho can, at all events, prevent hef from ever being Adare's! The day after to-morrow he will leave and, catching the boat on Thursday next, be out of the country before Sir Lucien is even aware of hi* having left the Mill House. And, even if pursued, what chance of convicting him of having anything to do personally with those stones? A man of quick resolves, he now makes up his mind in an instant on a matter that might have taken other men many an hour to decide upon. "Not him or any other man," says she slowly. That laugh of his angered her. There had been distrust of Adare in it. "That lies In the future," retorts he. "As for me, I have not mentioned it be fore, but Esther and I start for Austra lia shortly. This is a secret I know I can trust you with. It lies with you now to either come with us or stay here— here, where you are treated with con tempt and despised, nnd where, if you are in earnest about your refusal to mar ry Adare until your father's memory is cleared, you will find yourself deserted and alone. Fot"—with a strange glance, menacing, yet appealing—"that will nev er happen! Those jewels Sir Lucien has set his soul upon will never fall into his hands!" "You only convince me that you know something of them," says she in a low, elcer tone. "I feel it is useless to appeal to you, but hear me! If you do know where those jewels are, I swear I will not marry Hilary, or any man—that I will die unmarried—if only you will clear my father's name! Is that not bribe enough?" "Hah! you have come so far as that," says he. "Well! you must go farther. Swear you will marry me, and She turns abruptly away, as if despis ing him too much to answer. "Just as you will," he mutters sullen ly. "However, a last word. If at any hour you elect to comfe out to us—and I believe Adare will fling you aside when he knows positively what his marriage with you will mean to him—then, you will receive from me a cordial welcome. Bear that in mind, my girl. It is worth a thought! And—another thing—if you* agree to cast in your lot with us, you need not think that it must necessarily lead to marriage with me. No! His strange, wild face looks tragically, hon estly earnest at that moment. "You shall be free to choose betwixt ate and many another to "You have not left me free this time," »ays she with a faint smile. "But if you are really going, Brian, good-by. We are not likely to meet again." "You forget—you are-coming home to morrow." "No, I had not forgotten. Bat to night Madam asked me to go and stay with her for a week, and "Ah!" cries he fiercely, with the fierce ness of acute mental agony. "You are dwelling on the thought that this is our last meeting. You hope for that! it," in a choking voice, "it is not our last meeting in spite of you, I shall see you again "It would not be in spite of me, Bri an," says she very softly and kindly, touched by the certain misery of his whole air. "I only thought it would be for the best for you and me not to meet again. Bnt if yeu wish to bid me an other, more open farewell, I shall be glad to see you at Madam's." "Let that rest," says he roughly, mak ig a gesture as if pushing something Mide. "What I want to know is, what ire you going to do when I am gone? Madam," with a glance at her, "will .go too! A ad you! Are you going to live alone in that old house?" "I have lived alone the greater part of IHf life." Her voice is very sad and for "I shall not mind .the loneliness. I had no tine to think of it yet 'as ftai aa idea Estbs* would «a bM T,€ 'V' IL fify f. you this time. But I am sure old Mrs. Blake and her daughter—you know how1 poor they are, and how respectable— would come up and take care of me and the house. They are quite nice people, and will not trouble me at all, and I think it will be a help to them. So you see," with a rather haughty, if distinctly puzzled glance, "you need not "be at ail uneasy about me." CHAPTER XX. "We are going up to the tower to see the stars," cries May. "They will be lovely to-night. Gilby." to Grey, who is in close attendance, "has Amber gone? She said she hated cloaks. Oh! come, Dolly, it will be delicious in the tower, and, after all, I'm not a bit sleepy now!" "The stars in their courses," begins Dolly, glancing at Everard, "are fighting for you. Come!" Up here in this old tower the night is magnificent. Stars upon stars stud the pale blue firmament, their brilliant lights defying the darkness. Even Dolly is a little less vivacious tkan usual beneath the heavenly beauty of those silent stars swimming above her in ths ineffable blue. It may be their mystic charm, or else a faint twinge of conscience, that renders her mute—who can say? It would be unfair to judge her on such evidence, as May is very silent, too and Amber, with arms on the sill of one of the narrow windows, her head uplifted, her large eyes wrapt and dreamy, has evidently no word for anyons. Not even for nilary, who is on her right hand, or for Everard, who is standing on 'her left. The little touch of calin that seems to have fallen on them all is now broken. Fro^n outside, from the stone steps lead ing up to the first room in the old tewer, comes a yell both loud and deep! Nat urally, Mr. McGrath is the owner of it. "Owen!" says Mrs. Clarence at once, with an air of resignation "he has evi dently fallen on the hard, stone steps, coming up in a hurry, and hurt himself." Indeed, a second later, as he stumbles into the room, he tells them so. "Beastly stairs! Fancy putting stones inside a house. Bad enough before the hall door. Well, here I am at last. Not missed, I can see, although I have been fighting your battles down below. But it's uo good! Nothing would get our darling Lucien off to his silken couch. lie grows livelier every minute. He wants to see you, Hilary I'd mlvise you to go at once, as he's in one of his tantrums. What are you all doing up here, eh? Mooning?" Everard casts an involuntary glance at Dolly, whose face is impassive. Had she arranged it? And, indeed, perhapa she had. Who could s iy? At nil events, she does not betray her self. Her wonderfully youthful little face, with its lucent eyes of simple blue gaz ing through the window up to the lustrous Stars, is innocent as a babe's of any hid den meaning. Everard's heart begins ta beat quickly. The time has come, with or without Dolly's intervention. Why trifle with it? Five minutes alone with her—with Am ber A word spoken-—a word answered. If she will give herself to him! He jibs a little at this thought, he, woh, up to this, has swbrn agninst lasting charms of any sort. Bat this one creature in all the world has caught and held him. Hilary below is caught by Sir Lucien in a discussion about the rents of the lower farms first—nnd then, as to the chances of making Brinn Deane tell all he knows of the missing jewels. "He knows everything," says Sir Lucien. "I don't believe it," says Hilary, "he is false all through. He is playing with you," and so on. Hilary's manner, in spite of himself, is a little impatient, and he has lost the power to conceal it. His heart is with the lovely Amber upstairs, with the girl who.has dragged it out ef his breast. This thought delights him. "I have now no heart," he has told himself a hundred times, glad at his loss. "No heart, but she has given me hers in stead. And what a heart!" All her gracc and sweetness i nines to him now, threefold as he sits listening to Sir Lu cien's violent diatribes against her mother and her detested father. As he saw her last, looking up to the stars, her pretty elbows pn the window sill, how dear she was. Truth and beauty lay in her eyes. Ah! that is her princi pal charm, Truth! But. beauty is truth! And what a lovely nature is hers! Poor Amber! she has need of many witches to keep away the many harms that are following her to-night, had he only known it! Breaking free at last from Sir Lucien, he rises, and with a haste that I am afraid can hardly be call ed decent, leaves the room. Now, with mad haste in his steps, he rushes up the broad staircase from the ha!!, eager to reach again that room in the old tower where h" had last seen his beloved gazing with rapt| eyes upon tha stars. 1 The room Is empty. No Amber is here now. No one is hei*e—it is swept clear of any living thing. Dolly indeed had been careful to cai'ry off all the others downstairs, when she saw Amber and Everard go towards the tiny stairs that led to the very top of the tower. Something he cannot define strikes cold to Hilary's heart, as he stands on the threshold of the empty_room. She had not waited! It was the one, the first thought. It was senseless—absurd how could she wait, if all the others went? Bat still she had not wait ed. He turns to retrace his steps. If not here, then perhaps in the d/awing room. It is late, hewever, and ao doubt once having abandoned their desire for the stars, they—the women—had all gone to their rooms. Slowly he goes down wards, and reaching the galtey that runs round part of the house, walks alowly to wards a back staircase that Ifeads to the kalis beneatk Hs km mm kail way •V. nr'"* wnen a slittot sound In the di'twsee ba hind hi in Lr.u^s Tin to a full Uop. Steps! Steps surely! He turns ,and through the darkness—Sir Lucien'a eco nomical mind has ordered lights out at eleven o'clock sharp every night—through tlie darkness lit only by the moon, that now is riding gloriously in the hsaTens outside, his eyes rest instinctively vpoa the stone steps that lead to the tower. A moment he waits, his heart beating madly—a Moment, and now through the mists of night, and the strange shadows of it, sad the faint rays rushing through the central windows, he sees two forms come slowly forward. They pause. One—it is Amber—leant slightly forward. Some words fall from her lips. Her companion—Everard, be yond doubt—answers her. Another mo ment, and then Everard has taken her hand, has raised it to his lips, she con senting A fervent, a passionate caraas on the back of that small brown hand, and Krerard goes down the principal staircase, leaving her still standing in the full moonlight gazing after him. Adare can see her face perfectly. Beyond deubt there is intense feeling in it—for hine-» for Everard! The fact that Amber is now coming his way, across the unlit gallery, fails ta check the devil that is raging in kis breast. Ah! last night. How he had admired her then, mad fool that he was, because of her determination not to marry him until her father's name was cleared! She had not waited to clear her father's memory before accepting Everard. What a dupe he has been It was a mere put off to him, until she could make sure of Everard, and his immense fortune. Aad he had believed in her he would have staked his soul on her truth. Nearer, nearer come the footsteps. Quite in the shadow himself, he can watch her as she approaches, without beifcfr seen himself. A cold, hateful dis belief in all things—in everyone—has seis ed upon him, taking place of his late mad rage. As she gets within two yards at him he steps forward. "Oh, you, Hilary!" cries she with a \ittle throb of joyous surprise In bet soft voice. (To be continued.) HOW TO TELL AMERICANS. Von May Knan Them by Bar es Their Watch Chains. "When you go abroad and are anx ious to inwt some of your own coun trymen, keep a lookout for watch chains, and If you find one with a bar at the end of It, you will be safe la addressing the wearer," said Represent ative Gust a v Ivustermann of the Ninth Wisconsin District, says the Washing ton Post. Mr. Kusterniunn Is a native of Germany, and passed his boybood und the first years of his business ca reer lu Hamburg, so he ought to know whereof ho talks. For thirty years Mr. Kusterniann has been a merchant la Green Bay, Wis., and the present is his first term in Congress. "Thore was a time when It was easy for the traveler abroad to pick out ona of his own countrymen by the shoes worn," continued Mr. Kustermann, "but since American shoes have been put on sale in every city In Europe, and apparently are given the preferenca among English people, footwear is no longer a criterion of nationality. But all you have to do is to look at a man's watch chain. If it has a bar at the end, the owner is an American. The Gorman or Frenchman has a round ring with which to fasten his chain to his vest, while the Englishman has aa oval hook serving the same purpose. "Most Americans one meets abroad are always In the same big hurry they are at home. They will rush through an art gallery, a museum, or other place ortntorest without really looking at the attractions of the place, simply to tell their friends at home that tiey have been there. Of course, little knowledge is gained in this way, and if the trip Is made for recreation, It must of necessity be a failure. It Is far better to visit the smaller communi ties and spend the time among the peasants.

BORAX IN THE DAIRY. A Matter of Profitable Interest the Farmer and Dairyman. to The problem of keeping sweet all the utensils used in connection with milk and cream selling, and butter making, has been a serious one with the farmer. He has come to realize fully that the slightest taint or hint of stateness left in a can, tin or churn may ruin a whole output that the taint which is left is In the form of bacteria which grow and multiply In milk or butter, producing disastrous results. The farmer lias learned that hot water won't rinse away the greasy resi due iu dairy utensils. He has learned that soap leaves a residue of Its own wbich Is, if any thing, worse than the milk or cream residue, and It Is little wonder that there has been a constant clamor for a a i y e a n s e a n s w e e e n e a w i n meet modern requirements. A few of the largest creamery estn.i lishinents have called experts Into con sulfation on this problem and have with this scientific aid hit upon a pro duct of nature which exactly fills the bill—borax. Scientists have long known borax as a cleanser, a sweetener and an anti sei#tic destroyer of bactfria and germ growths. Destroys all that is harmful and promotes and preserves freshness, sweetness and purity, relieving the dairyman and dairy housewife of drudgery ^ind of needless work and worry. Its cheapness and value tiiould give it first place lu the necessities of every dairy. The cow's udder is kept In a clean, healthy and smooth condition by wash ing it with, borax and water, a table epoonful of borax to two quarts of water. This prevents roughness and sore ness or cracking teats, which uutke milking time a dread to the cow aud worry to the milker. The modern clcanoer of all dairy utensils consists of—one tablespoonful of borax to every quart of water need ed. Remember—a tabtesi»oooful equals four teaspooufuls. Be sure that you get pure borjfs. To be sure, you must get "20 Mule Team Borax."

PINKHAM Nature and a woman's work com bined have produced the grandest remedy for woman's ills that tho World has ever known. In the good old-fashioned days of our grandmothers they relied upon the roots and herks of the Meld to cure disease and mitigate suffering. The Indians on our Western Plains to-day can produce roots and herbs for every ailment, and cure diseases that baftle the most, skilled physicians who have spent years in the study of drugs. From the roots and herbs of tho field Lydit\ E. Pmkham more than thirty years ago gave to the women of the world a remedy for their pe culiar ills, more jiotent and effica cious than any combination of drugs. Lydia E. Pinkiiam's Vegetablo Compound is now recognized as the standard remedy for woman's ills. Mrs. Bertha Muff, of 515 N.C. St., Louisiana, Mo., writes: Complete restoration to health means so mucli to me that for the sake of other suffering women I am willing to make my troubles public. "Fortwelve years I had been suffer ing with the worst forms of female ills. During that time I had eleven different. physicians without help.
