Tha Evil Profession of tha Man Wht
Extorts Hush Money Is One That
Keips an Army of Dittctivsi Busy
and 11 tha Despair ol tha Official
Voiles—How Scoundrele Qat Mm
Into Their Power.
"This li one of the worst crimes a
man can commit   ...   By threats
and letters you have madu 's life
a hell upon earth,"—Mr. Justice
Lawrence, at the Old Bailey, London,
One ol the most sensational black.
Dialling cases of recent years came
to an end a few days ugo, when Mr.
Justice Lawrence, In punning sentence, made thfi remarks quoted.
"The great pity of it in," said a well-
known London solicitor, who huu
pri.lmbly dealt with more cases of
blackmail than any other member cf
the legal profeision, to a newspaper
mun, "that for every one of theso
blackmailing scoundrels who nre
brought to book, a hundred escape
scot free. These human parasite* are
of all elusssi- They feed upon the
poor as well as the rich, and it Is
extremely difficult at time* tn know
how to deal with them, Whyr He-
cause tha victims an* afraid to go to
law. Men and women come to un*
and  lell   me  that  such  nnd  such  a
Eorson la extorting money from them
y threaling to expose nome scandal
connected with their lives. Tlm extortion must be stopped, they suy,
but tt must be done nuiotly, other*
wltt there Is a possibility of suelal
ruin for them.
"Thus they tic my hands; and if I
cannot settle the matter amicably with
the blackmailer, I have o turn tha
tables on lum or her hy putting private detcctiven ou the r track, tin.ling
out all there is to he discovered al-out
them, and endnnvoring to make things
so warm for them generally that they
are glad to come to terms."
"But surely ii in better to face the
possibility nf social ruin und exposure than to he hounded down and
fleeced by these despicable rogues!"
"Not always. The victim may be
a married man or womnn, with growing children just mul; tig their way ln
the world, anil whose lives would
probably ho ruined hy the exposure.
The life happiness of a woman muy
depend on hiding some secret ein
from her lover or husband, or vice
versa. The blackmailer knows this,
and knows that he can bleed his
victim to the uttermost without danger of being sent to prison."
And here the solic tor mentioned a
ease which he described as one of the
saddest on record. A young woman,
moving in very good circles, met a
scoundrel at a seaside resort when
she was quite a girl, and he persuaded her into a secret marriage. He
treated her abominably for a few
weeks and then disappeared. For
years the woman heard nothing of
her husband. She thought he must
be dead, and, meeting a man who
really loved her, married him without disclosing her previous marriage.
■Suddenly husband No. 1 turned up,
and proceeded to blackmail the tin-
Im inn-it.- wonifii, under tl... threat of
disclosing her previous marriage and
having her arrested for bigamy. For
a year or two she kept him quiet
with all the money ahe could get; but
it was no good. He hounded her
down until at last, in despair, she
committed suicide. Afterwards he*
hut-band got nn inkling of what had
happened, commltcd my informant,
and thus the whole story came to
"It sounds like the plot of a mod*
eru novel," snid the solicitor, "but
I can assure you that it is an authentic case."
It ia an astounding but nevertheless
true fact that there is a restaurant in
the West-end of London which is
known to be the rendezvous of these
blnckinailera. Here they meet to
discuss their villainous plans during
the day, and In the evening they mix
among the audiences at the music
halls, th.' ut res, hotels, and restaurants, looking for likely victims.
They are well-dressed, plausible
scoundrels, who quickly worm their
way into the confidence of any per.
son who gets into conversation with
them. As a matter of fact, at the
beginning of last year, Scotland Yard
was in possession of certain Information which left little doubt that a
notorious gang of blackmailers, comprising no fewer than a couple of
hundred men and women of all stations ot life, was at work in the City
and West-end and victimizing many
people of high social standing. In
club-land, on the racecourse, and at
all the resorts of rank and fashion,
the members of this gang were to be
Perhaps the most dastardly trick
played by these blackmailers Is that
of using one of the prettiest members
of the gang as a decoy, getting a
wealthy and prominent man into an
entanglement with her, and then
making him the petitioner fn a threatened divorce case, the girl, of course,
being married to one of the member-
of the blackmailing gang. It la estimated that hy this trick blackmailers
have netted, from various victims,
no less than 11,000,000. They know
that their victim, rather than face
divorce proceedings, which would result in social ruin, is willing to pay
practically any price to keep the
matter quiet.
The extent to which blackmailing

A Olty Full of Interest and Information For the Tourist.
Qucbco is one of thu oldest cities
in America. It is noted (or its ancient
institutions and h ouu of tho most
interesting cities for tourists on thu
continent.    A recent writer say3:
Tho ancient seminary uud divinity
school, founded in lOftl, still is full of
students training for the Roman
Catholic priesthood; the Laval University, which is the largest and most
impnruitit ediiciiiiuiiiil institution iu

lt was customary lur both military
and ecclcsiastlcul explorers to deposit
their journals und other manuscripts
wilh the university, which was founded by Mgr. de Laval, thu lir.-l Koinan
Catholic bishop of Canada, and they
ure now the source of material as well
as inspiration for historians. A publishing house uf Cleveland has printed translations of much ol the most
important historical material.

Within the walls, near the principal

No city in America has so many
nunneries and monasteries us Quebec,
and most of them are either schools
or homes (or the poor and aged. One
of the benevolent institutions is
unique. It is kept hy the Sisters of
Providence, who receive the children
of widows aud feed and teach them
for two cents a duy. lt is a day
nursery also, where working women
can leave their babies to be cared for
by sweet-faced nuns while they are
earning their living.
The,number of churches and the
size ot them is surprising. Nearly all
are of the Roman ChOioHc faith. A
cathedral of the Church of England
occupies a conspicuous place iu the
centre of the city und is interesting
because a number of buttle flags are
hung in the chancel, over the pulpit
and the altar, und in the vestry is a
beautiful communion service presented by the late King Edwaru. The

One of the oldest churches In
America is the French cathedral or

to 1047. It is one of the most imposing structures iu Canada. It contains
several important pictures, including
a picture of the crucifixion painted
by Van Dyck in 1630, which, with several other examples ol the old musters,
was looted from the churches in Paris
by the revolutionists of 1793 and pur*
chased by Abbe Dcb Jar-dins, of Quebec, who happened to be in the
French capital at that time.

A Colony Maker.
Mr. Algernon Edward Aspiuall, see-
retary of the West Indian Committee
in Loudon, who is about to visit Canada, is one of an energetic coterie of
, Englishmen of affairs who are making
exceptional efforts to improve the
trade conditions of the British West
Indian Islands. Mr. A.-'piuall has
held official position in several of the
West Indian colonies. He is in hia
fortieth year, and is a man ol peculiarly energetic temperament. His favorite recreation is mountain, climbing
and walking in Switzerland, and he
is not fatisfled if he cannot break
time records whether in walking or
climbing. When he returned to England from the West Indies he deliberately set out to work up a West
India advancement party, and ha
threw into the work all Uie energy
1 which had made his name famous m
, the Alps. He first published a pocket
1 guide to the West Indies which at
. once resulted ln a marked increase io
' tourist travel from England, and iu*
fused new life into thc organizations
having the welfare of the British West
Indus at heart. In 1898 he was elect-:
ed secretary to the West India Com*
mittee, and shortly afterwards was ap*
poiued secretary of the West India
Club. About the same time he was
elected a member of the council oi
the British Cotton Growing Association. A favorite project of Mr. Ar-pl*
nail Is a sort ol commercial union between the whole of the British posses*'
i sions on this side of the Atlantic, including the West Indies, British Guiana, British Honduras and Canada,

Suddenly to the men's horror Bates

them. When the relieving shift discovered the flooded hole and pumped
It dry, they found the young hero
standing erect quite dead, still holding his comrade's hands.

Tragedy of 1S70.

baa, the London Chronicle Buys. Just
been found by a Cbamuulx guide In
tbe Ice of the (Jlucler des Bossons.
which "flows" down direct from the
summit of Mont Blnnc lo the valley
of Chumonlx. The Iind recalls the
most terrible accident In Alpine bis
tory, when eleven climbers perlshM
on tbe summit uf the (Jrent White
mountain In violent aoowatorms wblcb
lasted a week. In September. 1H.O.
the Rev. G. MeCurklndale uf tjlnsgow
■nd two Americans, Dr. J. Beau of
Baltimore and Mr. ttandall, both elderly men with little experience of tbe
Alps, set out from Chnmonlx witb
eight guides nnd wifely reached tbe
summit In doubtful weather. Hardly
bad tbe descent commenced when tbe
snowstorm st cried, nnd not one of tbe
eleven climbers was seen agalu alive.
A atrong force of guides aome days
later found tbe bodies of Ave victims.
Including tbe clergyman and It
Bean, but the other six were never
found, having moat probably fallen
Into crevasses. It Is uow thought,
owing to the discovery of tbe broken
alpenstock, tbut tbe bodies of tbe six
climbers, who bave been burled In
their tomb of Ice for the last forty-
one years, bave reached tbe end of
tbe glacier, whlcb travels at tbe rate
of about r-00 feet a year, and are not

Dr. Wiley's Advice,
Children under ten yeurs of age
ahould not eat ut thu name time with
tbe adults.
If mothers knew the enormous advantage to be derived frum such a
procedure they would welcome the
idea. Children would theu eat food
•specially stilled lo children. Thlngt
would be cooked, end they would hare
before them Just what they should eat
As it Is Ihey see the food beforo

aud they demand it, cry fur It, coal

Tbs call for International atandaids

more Insistent with the progressive
unification of the Industries of the

kind la for an International standard
of colors. Chemists, manufacturers of

others would benefit by such a standard. It Is suggested tbat when ones
