A Chicago despatch snys: Inspector
Fltzpn trick this morning will have
hia officers dig up the basement of
1,181 Milwaukee avenue fur the purpose ol ubcertuiuiug if 11. II. Holmes
did really bury there Emily Vau Tassel, wliuiu Uo claims to nave murdered.
"This is done in the interest of giving some Credence to the statements
ol llolinus," suid tho Inspector. "I
havo read his confession. Some ol
it corroborates what our detectives
fouud. rtoiuu is hard to believe. Still,
wo'll do a little digging on Milwaukee
avenue iu order to satisfy cverybudy.'
Chicago detectives treat the alleged
confession of li. II. Holmes with contempt. They have had sinco lust
July indubitable prool that he murdered Julia I.. Connors iu his eustle on
Sixty third street. They have believed the proof to be equally strong
that he murdered 1'earl Connors, her
daughter, lie admits both murders
in liis confession and details the manner in ivlilch he committed the crimes.
Chief of l'ollce Badeuoch said yes-
terduy afternoon: "1 liavo not reai^
tlio confession. I received from Detectives Fltzputrlck und Norton ample proof last Bummer that Holmes
was u murderer, u swindler, a scoundrel, a liar, and a coward. Ills story
in many features does uot lit with
tlie precise evidence obtained by tlie
Chicago police agaiust him last suin-
mer.     Our evidence is right."
Detective Sergeant Andy Rohan
��� said : "The biggest liar of the day
has worked his last fake. To get a
little money he joins in with a *\ew
York newspaper to print a sensational
story. lie takea what the brightest newspaper minds of Chicago and
the best detective ability of the city
discovered eight mouths ago, adds a
few lies to it, and lets it go. He
doesn't enumerate thc twenty-seven
people he claims to have killed. No
one believes tliat he ever killed that
number. He made the figure up to
inuke the story hoII. It's made ol
cheap stuff."
LIES ABOUT GERTRUDE CONNORS.
Holmes claimed luo Kihed Gertrude
E. Connors. Sao died in Muscatiuo,
Iowa, July IB, 18D1, of neuralgia of
tlie heart, Hor death occurred seven
weeks after sue had left Chicago, sue
luui been subject to neuralgia for
years prior to lier death. Sho was
burled by her parents. The Chicago
police satisfied themselves last July
thut Holmes had not tho slightest
connection with iier death. No Anna
Van Tnsmiud was ever missing in
Cldcago. Emily Van Tassel, ol G4J.
North Koliey street, uid disappear.
Slio kuew Holmes. She lias never been
found. Her parents still livo ln this
city.
Koljcrt Latimer, whom Holmes
claims to have murdered, is alive. He
Is employed, or was until a few weeks
ago, by tho Western Indiana Iioad
as a flagman at tlio Sixty-third
stroet crossing of tlio company. He
worked for iioluies as u carpenter
and a clioreman. Threo statements
sent out by Holmes from tlio Philadelphia prison in July und August of
last year contradict every statement
mado in his confession. The Chicago
liollco gavo him credit for admitting
that lie murdered the I'itezel children, I'itezel lUmself, the two Williams girls, Julia Connors and Emily
Cigrande. Tliey kuow that the man
who wns to marry Emily Cigrande,
and wlioso namo appeared upon her
wodding cards, was nono other than
B. F. I'itezel. Ho lind tnkon tho gold
euro nt Dwlght, mot tho girl there,
and brought her finally to Chicago,
where sho secured work with his
master, Holmes. After she had been
betrayed It wili necessary for both
Holmes and Pitezel to dispose of her.
CONFESSION   CAUSES   LAUGHTE1'..
Tlio story created no sensation in
polioo circles, for tlio truthful portions of It wero secured by Cidel
Badenoch last year, and the lies were
so patent ns to only causo laughtor.
Detective Welbaskoy said last evening:*
"I worked three weeks tracing the
Williams girls. Holmes' confession in
regard to tho killing ol Nannie is not
true. He did not kill her the day she
arrived from Texas. Sho lived here
wltii iUnnio on tho South side, with
lier at 1380 Wrlghtwood avenue, end
at Harvey beforo either wm killed.
Minnie never met Holmes In Now York
as Hutch. Thero is not tho slightest
proof that ho ever saw lier in New
York. She left Oak Cliff. Va- to go
to Fort Worth. From there sue went
to Dallas, tbenco to somo othor Texas
point, thi'iii-i) Into Wlsconson, nnd
from there she came to Chicago.
Then sho first met Holmes. 1 have
the proof that Nannie came oa here
at hor sister's request. Both wero
with Holmes day ln and out for
weeks. Tbey were often scon together
ln Englowood beiore they disappear
ed finally. Look, also, that in his confession Holmes snys he first mot Minnie Williams in 1803, and then
claims that ho killed her on or about
Nov. 15, 1808. That's a queer kind
ot confession."
FIVE ALLEGED    VICTIMS    ALIVE.
The Record this morning says: Four
of the victims who were slaughtered relentlessly yesterday morning in
H. H. Holmes' "confession" have been
seen alive and well since tiie dates
on which they were officially murdered. One ls tn Engtewood. One can
be reached through the medium of the
United States mall or either of two
telegraph linos. The third has done
business and failed In Chicago since
the time at which the self-abhorred
criminal  asserts  thnt ho killed him.
The fourth has beeu seen by those
n ho know her well in the vicinity ol
the "castle." siu.e Holmes, according
to his i-tory, declares tliat ho suffocated her in the vault of his unique
.building. A fifth, claimed to be a
wealthy Chicago banker, never was
heard of In this city. The man who
Holmes says can throw light upon
the dark places (n his unsolicited testimonial to bis own evil character is
a myth, unheard ol by the police in
the two cities In wliicU lio is sui*-
posed to have operated.
EX-JANITOIt LATIMER TALKS
Robert Latimer, the ex-Janitor,
whom liis erstwhile employer credits
with the (eat ol tearing out the brlekB
and mortar of the vault of tlie castle
ln his living agony, may be seen any
night after midnight swinging a red
lantern at the railroad crossing at
Sixty-third and Wallace streets. He is
not a spook, for spooks clo nut figure
on the pay roll of the Western Indiana
Railroad. Ile Is the night flagman at
that crossing, and lias been since midnight Ol July ;ird, 1S04. Latimer resides ut No. 750 Sixty-third court,
three blocks from Holmes' cnstle.
When he Hugs trains his shelter Is Just
across the track from the building
ami not fifty feet awny from It.
Latimer wns born in Cnnton, 0.,
lived In various parts of that State
until nine years ago, anil then moved
to Englowood. He went to work for
II. H. Holmes almost immediately and
continued in his employ uutil his brother, learning that Holmes was not
paying hlin promptly or regularly, Induced hlin to leave. After thut he did
odd Jobs of carpenter work, incidentally working ou gome of the buildings
of the World's Fair.
THINKS HOLMES IS INNOCENT
Ills term ol service for Holmes closed
Just bi'fore the third story was added
to the cnstle Ever since his old employer was arrested Latimer has protested that Holmes was innocent of
all the murders charged up to him,
and, further, thnt he did not believe
tbat Holmes ever even swindled anybody Ho still asserts the same, In
spite of the evidence and Hobnes' accredited confession. Latimer married
ln Englewood since he left Holmes. He
has no children.
DR. RUSSELL A CANADIAN.
Tlie other "victim'' whose whereabouts nre positively known is Dr.
Thomas Russell, to whom Holmes accords the distinction of first place in
his chef-d'ueuvire ot yesterday. Holmes
asserts that he felled the doctor with
a chair lu a quarrel, which air***se
over tlie hitter's non-payment of rent.
This stury was exploited last fall by
seme of the daily papers, and at that
time Dr. Russell, who Ls at the head
of a hospital at Grand Rapids, Minn.,
wroto a letter to the Record, which
was published, Informing the public
that ho was tho mnn referred to, and
that the story was a canard. The
doctor Ls a Canadian by birth, and is
a graduate of the University of Toronto. Ho had an office in Holmes'
building in tlie spring of 1801.
lie fuund thut it was hard to work

There has been some controversy
between several newspapers as to the
significance of the number of mortgages on the farms of Ontario as a
gaugo of prosperity. It- is contended In
one quarter that the prevalence of
these mortgages Is simply a sign that
farmers havo more difficulty than
other business people in obtaining thn
money they need frum tuft regular
banks. The suggestion lias accordingly been made tliat banks should be
���established ior tlie express accommodation of the .farming community.
As tho subject is both interesting
and important, nn Advertiser representative lias interviewed Mr. D. B.
I)ewar,tlie energetic Lundon manager
of the Canadian Bank of Commerce.
Being asked if It was correct, as sometimes stated, that thoroughly solvent
farmers woro unable to obtain money
for legitimate businoss uses from the
regular chartered banks, and thnt
therefore banks should be established
for tlie express accommodation of the
farming community, Mr. Dewar replied as follows: "This may refer to
other banks, but certainly not to the
Canadian Bank of Commerce. We uro
exceedingly desirous of cultivating a
good farmers' connection, and are prepared to advance them the necessary
funds for the purchase of cattle, etc.,
and put them on the same footing, as
to rate of Interest, so fur as loan
advances are concerned, as any other
borrower of the bank. I doubt very
much If there ls a bank ln Canada
that would refuse a good farmer a
loan for a legitimate purpose. Our
loons are made ln the fall of the year
for tlie purchase of cattle for feeding
purposes; the cattle are sold ln the
spring, and the loan repaid from the
proceeds of sale; and I may say that
no bank could desire a more satisfactory business than this. There Is absolutely no need of a farmers' bank,
the chartered banks being quite ablo
and willing, I believe, to supply all
legitimate demands."���Advertiser.

THEIK VIEWS  ON   MARRIAGE
Tlie New York Suuilay Journal describes the religious order kuowu aa
" Tlio brothers of Nazareth," to
which Mr. A. J. Martin, for some
timo n member of at. Matthew's
parish in this city, belongs. He is
u brother ol Mr, K. T. Martin, the
well-known tenor singer, uno: is now
known ns Brother James. The Journal saya:
The Brothers of Nazareth, who
pride themselves upon being tho extreme Anglican, or High Church
Brotherhood of tho Protestant Kpis-
copal Church in tliis couutry, are now
attracting much attention upon the
upper West Shlo by tlieir long brown
habits and thick leather girdles, to
wliich are attached tho cross of
their order.
Tho life of those brothers, who, as
they express it, aro "wedded- to the
church," is one of privation and of
devotion to tho work of tho Jjord.
The brothers are located in two
small houses at Nos. L��21 nnd 22a
West Sixty-ninth street, their home
nt Priory Farm, Verbank, having
been destroyed hy fire last summer.
Hero they conduct a homo for convalescents and the sick, which is entirely free to those who are unable
to contribute to the support of the
institution. The daily labors of the
brothers are under tho charge of
Brother Gilbert, tho founder of the
order.
Promptly at 5.80 a. m. tho brothers
arise, and after making their simple
toilet repair to tlio beautiful little
chapel in their house, which has beon
fitted up for them by the Kev. J. J.
Rowan Strong, M. A., B. 0. L.( LL. B���
who is tlio chaplain of tho Order,
and resides with the brothers. At 6
o'clock they commence the keeping of
the seven canonical hours by saying
Laudcs and Prime, At 7 o'clock tliey
all go over to tho little chapel of the
Transfiguration, just a block awny
from the home, where mass is celebrated by Father Spong. Upon returning to the home, breakfast is
served to the patients, the brothers
waiting upon them. Then the brothers
have their own breakfast. At 9 o'clock
thev repair to the chapel, where
Tierce is said, after which tliey look
aSter the welfare of the patients.
At noon Scxt Is said in tho chapel,
immediately ufter which the patients'
dinner is served, tho brothers, as bofore, taking their own meal after the
others have been cared for. After dinner tho brothers preserve throe hours
of silence, with, of couftie, tlie exception of Brother Gilbert, who talks
to tho many people whoso urgent calls
for help como to the institution. The
good Brothers of Nazareth request
that no one will interrupt them
in      their        meditation during
these daily hours of silence.
Tito hours of silence nre followed by
the saying it None-. From then until
5 o'clock the brothers visit the sick
and attend to their spiritual needs.
At 5 o'clock the patients havo their
dinner. Then Comes the vesper service. At 8,"0 family prayers aro said,
and nil the inmates attend unless
tholr physical condition prevents. The
evening prayer, as laid down in tlie
book of Common Prayer of the Protestant Episcopal Church, is used.
Nine o'clock is the hour for the saying of Compline, which ends the spiritual exercises of the day. At 10
o'clock, according to the rules of the
order, all  the brothers retire.
The order of the Brothers of Nazareth was established on May 8rd,
18S7, by Brother Gilbert, who was
known in private life as Gilbert Tompkins, anil was an ardent adherent of
Father Huntington, at that time rector of the Church of the Holy Cross,
on Avenue C, near Fourth street.
Here it was that he was "professed"
by Bishop Potter, when he took the
vows of poverty, celibacy and obedience.
lu addition to tho homo the order
has St. Andrew's Cottage, at Farih-
dale, L. I.; three cottages in Ulster
County, which are used during the
Summer months as boarding places
for clerks of limited moans, and the
Priory Farm at Verbank, Duchess
County, whero thoy conduct St. Paul's
training school, and where it is planned to have a religious house and
chapel, as well as a detached hospital, in placo of tho ono that was destroyed last summer. The plans for
this structure are being prepared by
Martin & Stall, architects, of Providence, It. I.
"While the Brothers of Nazareth
call themselves an Anglican order,
they claim that their practices are
strictly in aocord with tho ancient
tenets of the Episcopal faith, and
that everything that they do is authorized by tho fourth of the General Councils, wliich was held at
Calcedon in tlie, yoar 451.
In an interview with a Sunday
Journal reporter tho Kev. Father
Spong said; " Thero is a vory mistaken idea prevalent that the Brothers oit Nazareth are opposed to
' marriage or the giving in marriage.'
Of course, wo all know that our
blessed Lord, when on earth, said
that ' It whh not good tor man to
live alono.' We surely believe this, nnd
wc aro freo to acknowledge that it
Is only right and proper, that it Is
best, probably. In accordance with
tho laws of nature, that ninety-
seven out ol one hundred should take
unto themselves a physical wife, and
wo Just ns surely contend and believe that it Is well that the other
three should be ' wedded to the
Church.' We honor all men who have
united themselves in the bonds of
matrimony with proper consorts;
we also maintain our right to wed
with the Church."
Tho Order of the Brothers of Nazareth Is divided Into postulants, visitors, novices and professed. A man
who wishes to Join it has to be first
a visitor for els weeks, with no regular form of habit to wear and no
rules to obey; he next becomes, a
postulant for ono year, during which
ho wenrs a plain black cassock and
a black leather belt; next he, is a
novice ior three years and wears; tho
brown habit ot tho Order, with an
unknotted girdle,  nnd after his pro
fession he dons the full lmiblt. including tho girdle with three knots
ami tearing the crucifix, which, according to tlio rules ol the Order,
must bo blessed with great ceremony at the time oi his profession.
In January last Brother James was
confessed at the chapel of the Transfiguration by Father Spong, with
what wus undoubtedly the most elaborate and imposing ceremonies conducted In aa Episcopal Church since
the days of King Fjdward the' Sixth
ot England. These ceremonies, It is
contended by those who took part in
them, were not of Roman origin, but
a part of the Catholic heritage ot the
Anglican Church.
HOW THEV PROPOSE.
Doea This  Kt'CHll  tu   Vou   Your   Calf-love
Period .*
Let us suppose that every lover proposed iu precisely the samo way!
One effect would be the demolishing
of tlio business oi  the story writer.
Mi. Howell's youug lady ln Harper's, after flatly telling the young
.nan that she guesses shu doesn't care
'or him and ho can go away, says:
"Thank you, 1 only wished to know
the worst. And you're not going
away  hating me '!'���
'* No; loving you more  than ever.''
She turns Uer face aud averts Uur
eyeB. " Why���what aro you-goiug
for,?'
" rhlllippa I'" Ho throws his anus
about her and clasps her to him.
Mi'. Ilo we ils offers no explanation
for her turnabout propensities. His
Bitcnce adds weight to his well-known
scorn for vacilliatiug women.
Kate Douglass Wlggln strings out
the proposal in her story tot a, column, wnich Is bad���at loast for tho
article. Hut the lovers are 40 and
JIG, and it does not much matter.
And tiiey had been engaged before.
Madge Robertson has a pretty
story ol a wealthy young medical
student, who so pities a deformed
little child at a clinic that tie finally
ujllows ber to keep tho coveted exquisite silver box of bonbons ho waa
about to carry as a birthday gift
to the girl ot his heart. He explains
to the young lady thu absence of any
gift from him.
When he had finished there were
tears in the girl's eyes aud sho extended her bands. " Yoa will go and
too the little thing again," sho said,
softly, " aud I���I should like to go
with you.
" Always ?'��� ventured the youug fellow, Ids heart boating painfully.
Ho kissed her hand. Theu iio kissed her arm. Then lie looked up into
lier eyes, and then���he kissed hor
lips.
All this goes to prove that the way
to win a girl is to find an object) of
charity and bestow ou It something
intended  for  her.
Mary E. Stlcknoy's novel, " The
Old Silver Trail," has a double-barreled proposal. The first doos not
count because the silver mine blows
up and kills the girl's father in the
midst of It and tlie girl breaks with
lier lover whom her father hated, because she has ideas about providence
and its interference. Here Is the second one:
"Is It really you ?" ho Incredulously whispered, with trembling touch
caressing the littio hands. " You
here 11 Why are you here, Dorothy?"
" Tho doctor wrote me that you
wero sick," she faltered, her fingers
tightening on his with a sort of
shuddering tenderness as at a remembered terror.
" And you came for thnt ? Dorothy,
sweetheart, the last time I saw you
you told me that you hated me. It
was not true?"
" I think���I think moro of you���
than I thought I did," she murmured.
" Ah, the happy thought I God bless
you for this, sweetheart���mine 1"
Tliis is essentially a western method of patching up affairs. There
is nothing so efficacious in the welding together of two scored hearts
as a caso of brain fever aud an understanding doctor.
Robert Burr's hero is frightfully
pilosaic.
" Oil," answered the girl, " I have
no patience with you."
" I nm sorry for thnt, Mary," said
Ormond, " for If I could havo made
a living I intended to have asked
you to be my wife." t,
" Oh," cried the girl, breathlessly,
turning her head away. After the
usual"demurrer she saya "Yes."
Further search reveals tho amazing fact that tho proposal���in liter-
ture, at least���ia incoming obsolete.
Stories there aro of plenty but in
tho English publications they mostly relate to mysterious dianppear-
ancoB or are talea of conspiracy or Intrigue and in the American product
tlie proposal Is all done behind tho
scenes���the reader is introduced to
the engaged couple or to the married pair. The sentimental age Is
passing, evidently, and wo contemptuously hurry over tho romantic episodes to reach those dramatic crises
in life which seem to occupy the attention of both writers and readers.���Chicago Daily News.
TIME Ob' COOKING MEATS.
It ia almost impossible to give any
specific rule fur the exact time required for roasting a joint, as this
will vary according to the time thc
meat has been kept, and temperature
also exercises nu influence. Tho same
weight may possibly take twenty
minutes cr half nn hour longer in cold
weather than it will in warm. Generally speaking, however, says nn
English authority, ono allows fifteen
or twenty minutea for each, pound of
meat. Mutton takes rather less time
to roast than beef does. Pork, if
thick, mny possibly require twenty or
thirty minutes to tho pound. Other
ments when underdone may bo pleasant to certain palates, but pork Is
absolutely uneatable. White meats,
such as pork and veal, will take
longer to roast than brown meats. A
sirloin of beef of fifteen pounds
should be beforo the fire about three
,-und a half hours.
Dr. Pulsely���Nobody lias auy business tu be sick I You ought to bu
ashamed to say you are sick unless
you can give a reason for it. Mr.
Badly-Yes, I want to have a reason
for It.     That's why I sent for you.

They arranged together the details
of the combat. To propose to I'icgo
a duel under the usual conditions was
not to be thought or. What motive
could he give for a pttillc meeting,
short of calling up the terrible past
which Robert wished to bury In tho
tomb ? How make of the footman
Lolseau an adversary acceptable to a
gentleman such as Monsieur de Pancorvo ? The combat muat be without
quarter; It must be fulr; Dlego must
be forced to accept it. If Robert could
succeed in getting him to come to his
house and light lu the presence of two
trustworthy seconds, all these conditions would be fulfilled.
He determined to attempt tli Is
means, and he cast about lor a pretext lor Inducing Dlego to repuli to
the house at Montmartre, which be
bad assuredly not  lorgotteu.
One motive only would bo likely to
Influence his degraded mind, and that
motive wus his ungovernable love of
gold. Robert got John to write, lu
English,  tlie following  lines:
"A very important communication
awaits Monsieur de Pancorvo, ou the
subject ot the money left by his futher-
in-luw, Thomas Disney. If Monsieur
de I'ancorvo wishes to have Information ou this subject, he must come
to-morrow evening between eleven
o'clock aud midnight to the house
which the late Mr. Robert Bird occupied six yoars ago, at Montmartre.
The small door at the bottom of the
garden will remain open all night, und
that of the huuse will be opeued to the
name of Palmer. If Monsieur de I'ancorvo fears to couio aloue, he can
bring a servant with him,"
Robert hud it signed: "A former
servant ln the family," There was no
doubt that this letter would excito
Diego's curiosity, and probably his
cupidity, in tho position ln whicli bo
was, any opportunity of this description hud a chance of being eagerly
seized upon, and although the pluce ol
meeting wus liable to cause suspicion,
this would bo aa additional reason ior
making hini doslrous of clearing up
an alarming mystery.
Uobert was almost certain, too,
that Diego would not come alone,
and that ho would bring l'utldy L'assau
with him in prefereuce to letting un-
other servant into his secret.*, and this
was exactly what,he wished. He employed tlio tlmo which remained to
him lu preparing everything lor the
fatal night.
Ho had arms. He saw that they
were iu proper condition, nnd plueed
them ln Ellen's room. Uo called John
and Puddy, aud ullottod them their
parts. John wus to open the door to
Diego, to show him the way to tbe
room on the first floor, aud be present at the duel. Puddy, 11 he accompanied his muster, would be the other
witness of tills mortal combat.
Johu took home to Passy all tbe
money that Robert hail with liim. aud
his master placed ln bis hands a will
ln which bo pointed out tho way ln
which the money deposited in his
nntne with Rothschild was to bo employed. When ull these preparations
were concluded Robert hud uo further
thought but to fight well, and, if needful, to die well, lie was calm and confident, for his cause was Just.
During tho course of tho day Paddy
contrived to let him know at the cluo
that Diego hud ordered liim to bold
himself iu readiness to accompany htin
that night at eleven o'clock. Robert
was thus certain tbat thc first part
ot his plan would be realized us he
had anticipated.
Night came. He left his duties and
ropaired to Montmartre, where John
awaited bim.
All was ready.. Rapiers and sabres
wero ready ou a table iu Ellen's room.
All the other furniture had beeu
taken uwuy in order to leuvo sufficient room for Uio duel. The diver's
costume which -Wild served George as
a shroud remained suspended lu the
far end of the room. Mary's copybook aud Disney's will wero placed by
the side of the swords.
The night was dark, and a storm
was passing over Paris. Robert felt
confident that nothing would happen
to interrupt the task which he had in
hand.
Ho dismissed John to his post on the
ground floor, and knelt down to offer
to God a last pruyer.
A quarter to twelve had Just struck
by the old church clock at Montmartre, when tbe sharp sound of a knock
at the door caused Robert to start.
He closed tbe shutters tliat ho had
left opeu so that tho absence of light
should not cause Diego to thiuk that
the house was uninhabited, und listened.
Tbo door opened. Robert distinguished tho steps of two men, and
heard a bantering voice which ho well
reoognlzeii.
" Ha I it's you, John I" said Dlego.
" You've grown grey, my old sea-dog,
but I've u good memory, und recognized you ln splto of that. So you'vo
discovered old Tom's bldlng-place ? I
alwuys thought tbo old fellow had a
little pile stowed away somewhere.
Wo must havo a talk about It. But
what the devil gave you tbe idea of
making me como to this hovel on a
night like this ? It Isn't the best spot
for transacting business."
" If you will come up, sir," replied
John, " there's a room upstairs where
we shall be more comfortable."
" Right 1 come along. But no foolery, eh, old cbapl 1 wara you tbat
I've got a dog ln my pocket that
barks and bites at tbe same time, and
here's an Irishman that knows how
to use his fists,"
Robert heard tbe dick ot a pistol,
then tbe sound of steps ascending tbe
stairs.
Tbe door opened. Dlego appeared.
Paddy followed bim; John entered
last and shut the door alter bim.
Robert was standing at the end ol tbe
room, and the iam*p suspended from
tbe celling left him In the shade. Dlego
bad not seen htm.
He cast a suspicious glance around,
and turning abruptly to John:
"I've no time to lose," he said
roughly; " toll me your business, and
speak quickly, If you value your old
carcass,"
Robert took two steps and appeared
in tbe full light.
He had put on a sailor's coat similar to thut whicli be wore on
the Avenger; he hud cut off his whiskers, aad, on abandoning for good his
footman's livery, he had put on his
old  expression.
Dlego started buck and thrust bis
hand quickly into tlie pocket ol his
overcout to grasp Ids pistol, but
before he hud time to "nol it at
Itotiert, John bad seized his arm and
torn the weapon from him.
"Ah! a trap I" said the cowardly
scoundrel, already pale with terror.
" Help, my bruve Paddy I"
But Instead of coming to his aid,
the Irishman bud leant against the
wall  and folded his arms.
Diego's position began to dawn
upon him. He threw a frightened
look round the room, and turned
round like a wolf caught in a trap
seeking eome outlet.
John had placed himself bofore the
door, wldch he barred with bis
body. Escape was Impossible. The
muscles of Diego's face twitched. It
wus plain that he was making a
great effort to control himself. A
few seconds afterwards he hud put
on an easy manner, and a forced
smile played on his lips. The wretch
lind determined to try craft ouce
more, uud ho walked up to Robert,
lioiding out his hand.
" What you, my poor Bird!" said
lie, ln a voice wliich he tried to render composed ; " by what miracle are
you still iu this world?"
" God, who performed that miracle,
Diego, has given ine a mission, and it
was to fulfil it that I summoned
you   here ?"
" A mission! Really I What mission?" said ho, sneering, for he was
gradually recovering his assuranca.
" I have a reckoning to demand
irom  you."
" If it has anything to do with
money, you've choseu an unfortunate time, my do��r follow, for I'm not
in funds, aud if it's a question of
your results of our operations on the
Caiman, I confess that we wound
up without you. What were we to
Mo ? You hnd fallen into tlie sea,
nnd wo thought you wero drowned
and done for. Morgan and I naturally came in for your share. But
if you feel inclined, we can undertake another voyage to Brazil."
So much audacity disgusted Robert, who was uot prepared for this
Incredible Impudence; but he wns
too determined to allow himself to
be  put ofl my sarcasm.
" The reckordng which yon owo
me is of quite a different kind. Bo
silent, and listen. Five and twenty
years ago Thomas Disney was
cruelly butchered in his sleep. The
nssassin had taken bis precautious
well, und tlie crime remained unpunished. But God strikes suoner or
later. Thut assassin���stands here 1"
Roliert touched him with his linger,
and tbe wrotch trembled, as if he
had Ielt the hand of tho executioner.
He tried onco more to force asmilo,
us ho said:
" You are mad, Robert; you have
forgotten that on the night of the
crime wo both slept ut the inn at
Cogolln."
" 1 am not mad, nnd I have forgotten nothing. Hero is the will
which you stole after committing the
murder. Look; it Is still stained with
blaod."
Dlego recoiled as Roliert approached him, holding out the puper, on
which large red stain.** uppeuredhere
and there."
" No, I havo forgotten nothing,
and, U I needed more proof, in the
village which you left by night to
go and kill the man who called you
his sou I could flud the remains of
that devilish machine which sped
you on your murderous path."
Diego's face blanched, and ho tried
to stammer somo words which died
away   in his throat,
Robert continued:.
" Six years ago Mary, Tny sister,
the saintly creature wlio had chosen
you���you, a wretched vagabond,
without family and without fortune,
In order to bestow upon you hor heart
and her life; Mary perished by a
terrible deatli. Tho assassin, who had
set a vile trap for her, remained unpunished, and that assassin, again���
stands here I"
Diego shuddered, nnd cried In a
choking  voice:*
" Y'ou Uo I you lie I Mnry committed suicide. You know It; yon
road the lettor."
" Look 1"
And Robert 6howed him tiio accusing copy-book, oponed at the page
written  by his bund.
Diego's eyes started from bis head,
and  rage transformed bis features.
" The blow which killed Mary,"
continued ilobert, " foil also upon
Ellen. She died here���in this room to
which I huve summoned you tliat 1
may avenge her. A son remained to
mo. He was but a child, and he
loved you���you who had made bim
doubly an orphan. Uo risked his
Ufo to go and fetch from the bottom
of the sea tbe gold which tempted
your greed. You bound him with
your own hands, and you coldly waited till his agony was over to rejoin
tho vile accomplice who had helped
to murder him." And bofore the monster had time to deny it Robert
seined bis arm and dragged bim before the diver's costume reared
against the black curtain.
At this apparition Diego's hair
stood on end. He uttered a hoarse
cry and started back. He landed be
aaw George's ghost, and he trembled
ln every limb.
" Let us make an end ol this," said
Robert. " You understand that I
must kill you as you killed���one aftor
another���all those whom I loved.   I
should be justified ln shooting you
through tbe head like a mad dog. I
am willing to fight you. Here are
arms. Take your choice, and let us
get to work quickly."
Danger had in some degree restored
Diego's self-possession. He tried to
guln time.
" A duel in this room I" said he, "a
duel in the presence of these two respectable witnesses, who would set
upon me It I bad the misfortune to
wound their master I I'm not at all
anxious, my dear brother-in-law, to
give you this satisfaction ln order to
ease your conscience. If you want
to do nway wtth me, kill me, for I
will not fight���not here, at least;
but ln any other spot I should be
charmed ot tbe opportunity."
The scoundrel wus playing his last
card. He hoped that the Idea of a
forced duel would be repugnant to
Roliert's sense ol fairness. He hoped
that his brotber-ln-Iaw would be
satisfied with the promise ol a for*
mal duel, but the trap was too clumsily set. II the wretch were to succeed In leaving the bouse he would
get clear oil.
Roliert represented the Justice ot
God, nnd he had not the right to
grant any favor. Ho looked fixedly
at Dlego, und said slowly:
" You bavo five minutes to make
up your mind. In live minutes, It
you still rofuse to light, I shall order John to blow out your brains
with tho pistol which he has in Ills
hand, and tbo order win be carried'
out, I can assure you."
John bent his head in sign of affirmation.
Robert was so firm and cool tbat
Dlogo realized his position. One
chance only remained: that of killing bis adversary.
" Very well," said ho, " I am willing
to tight; but I. will cbooso the weapons."
Robert pointed silently to the rapiers and sabres lying on the table.
Dingo examined tbem, and took a
sabre.
lie was used to tho .weapon, and
often handled one on the Caiman.
Moro thaa onco In his brother-in-
law's presence he had fenced with
Morgan.
Jfobcrt, on tho other hand, had hail
somo practice with tho small sword,
but had never touched a sabro.
It mattered Ilttlo to him. ft was
his wish that God should decide tho
combat.
Dlego took off bis coat aud carefully placed himself in position. Ilo
stood with bis back to tlio door,
which his adversary consequently
faced.
Roliert told .Tohn to tnko out tho
key, and to station himself against
tho wall noar the window. He mado
thom both swear not to move, whatever happened.
Then he threw off his coat and
stood on bis guard.
His body leaning slightly forward,
his arm half extended, and holding
his sabre aloft, Diego prepared to
act on the defensive. He was determined to leave nothing to chance.
His plan was to draw Roliert into
tho full light of the lamp banging
from tho celling, whilst ho himself re-
malnod in the shade.
But Robert saw through It. Ho
feigned to attack the hoad, and, during tlio parade, sprang quickly on
ono side,
Tho two adversaries were then
outside the circle of light. George's
father had his bnck to tho window,
whilst the Diver's costume was behind Dlogo. Tho conditions bad become more equal.
At the end of two minutes ho had
received two cuts on the cheek and
shoulder. He wns losing a great
deal of blood, and lie felt that Ids
strength would soon fall him. He determined to mako an end.
Casting asido all precaution and nil
method, cutting and thrusting indiscriminately, lie tiirew himself on his
enemy. Ho cared little whether lie
died, so long as ho killed George's
assassin.
This furious attack did not cause
Dlego to lose his self-possession.
Parrying tlie blows, ho broke, and
placed hia back ngalast the wall.
Several times already Robert fancied
ho had touched bim. Ho saw blood
trickling down his luce and chest.
The murderer was wounded.
It wus then tliut rnge seized the
wretch, and, neglecting ln his turu
to defend himself, ho rushed on Robert
like a wild beast.
Thero was a terrible struggle for
the space of half a minute.
Dlego had grasped his sabre in both
bands and was trying to cleave his
adversary's head; but the two wero
almost touching and the blows fell
harmless.
Robert's blade had become fixed betweea the wall and his enemy's left
arm, and wns useless to him.
He felt Diego's heart against his
breast and his breath on his cheek.
Tlie blood from their wounds mingled.
This   lusted  quito twenty  seconds.
Then Robert crouched down, sprang
back, and aimed oue torrUic stroke
with  all his remaining strength,
Tho point of ills sabre broke against
Bouie hard body. At the same luuineut
he felt a fearful blow on bis head.
He shut liis eyes and fell forward,
A backhanded biovv had caught him
on tlie left side of his skull. As for
Diego, he hud sunk down au Inert
mass.
He wus dead.
His opponent's sabre had passed
through his heart.
Robert remained Insensible for
nearly an hour, Wheu bo recovered
consciousness he was la the room on
the ground-floor, whither Johu nnd
Paddy had carried him. There was
not a momont to lose before leaving
the scene of tlie combat, for the day
was about to break.
Robert's wounds were not very dangerous ; but the blooil which he had
lost had weakened liim considerably,
and be had great dilliculty In walking. Leaning on the arms of bis two
friends, he succeeded, however, lu gaining the street, A belated cub was
passing, and tho driver agreed to take
them to tbe Passy Barrier, trom
whence they walked to Slough's house.
The night was fnr advanced, and
they met no one. For the Ume being,
at least, Robert wus safe. His plan
was to leave France with John and
Faddy; but he wus still too weak to
travel, and be wus in absolute need
of a lew days' rest and attention.
Grave scruples, moreover, bad occurred to him.    He had no doubt as
yet of the lawfulness of the terrible
act which he had committed, but he
began to be auxlous ubout the couse-
quences. The papers wliich might
have a,forded a clue to the truth had
been removed by John; but lu the
the room where the duel had been
obliged to leave many things too awkward to carry away. The diver's costume and the weapons were still ln
the room where the duel had been
fought, uud Diego's body lay ou the
floor where It had fallen.
The police would assuredly believe
thut a murder had beeu committed.
The false Pancorvo's position In society nud the mystery which surrounded his deuth would excite the
curiosity of the public, and it was
ouly to be expected that the machinery of the law would be actively sot
ln motion. It was hardly likely that
anything would be discovered to connect Robert und his iriends with the
crime; and, besides, he hud no fear
for himself.
But innocent men might be suspected, uccused, convicted, perhaps,
and the thought of this caused him
much more apprehensiou thun the necessity of being himself culled to account. If this misfortune happened,
Robert's conscience would uot permit
him to hesitate.
Besides all this, au inner feeling
prompted him uot to tuke upou himself the whole responsibility of this
deuth. He detenalaed to send Johu
to gather lul'orniution. The old suilor
wus quite uuknown at Montmartre,
so he could without dunger mingle tn
groups attracted by tbe occurrence,
und listen to the talk which weut
on.
Robert mude up his mind at the
same time to road all the papers, in
the hope that they would keep
him Informed as to the courae ot tbe
Inquiry.
It was a lucky Inspiration. The
same evening Johu Slough en ine bnck
very sud, uud his master had great
difficulty in making him give au account of what he had learnt. Roi>-
ert's fears had been only too well
founded. Several persons hud already
been nrrosted, and liis grief ut having caused innocent people to be
suspected w*as vory great.
A deep sorrow was reserved for
him, as if God had willed to punish
him for iiaving shed blood, even to
carry out tho most legitimate vengeance.
Tho man who waa accused of tlie
Montmartre crime, ho whoso honor
and lifo wero imperilled by the gravest suspicion, waa tlie gouoroua
stranger whom Robert hnd formerly
tried to save from his assailants ln
the street. A fata i chain of facts had
put the police ou the wrong track.
The night upon which Monsieur de
Pancorvo hud determined to attack
tlie man to whom tlio prisoner of
Cape Camarat had vowed eternal
gratitude waa the starting point of
this sad series of mistakes. On tliat
night Robert, aa tho footman Lolseuu, bad beon present at the club aud
hud guessed Diego's plans. He had
made up his mind to assist ids benefactor; but, la order to avoid being
recognized, be hud to confine himself
to following at n distance the man
whom he was anxious to protect. He
hoped that tbe sound of hia steps and
tlie sight ol another man would
frighten Dlego, aud prevent him from
venturing On an attack.
���Unfortunately the plan was not
successful.
The false Pancorvo had time to
bring his victim to tho ground and
plunder him, and Robert was forced to
mako off, so as to avoid recognition
and put into execution tlio only service which it was in bia power to
render to tho man whom he had uot
been ablo to rescue.
He torwardod to Ida benefactor a
sum equnl to tliat of whicli ho had
been robbed, thinking ln this wny to
mako somo return without betraying
his Identity. This act waa followed by
deplorable consequences, and If Kolt-
ert had been ablo to see thom It
would have lieen a thousand times
better if lie had refrained from performing it.
The curiosity excited by this anonymous restitution prompted this most
honorable mun to put hlmsolf ou tbo
truck ol the so-culled Lolseau, and a
most fatal coincidence brought It
about that tills maa was lu the garden at Montmartre ou tlio night of
the tragic occurrence which bus Just
been related. A wrong clue hud capped
the mistake, and was capable of
causing a grave miscarriage of justice. Robert's benefactor had been ar-
reated on the terrible chnrgo ol
murder, und If Providence d|d not Intervene und enlighten the magistrate
an  innocent man might perish.
Robert hud not, at any rate, to reproach himself with huving hesitated at tliis weighty crisis. His mind
wns made up ut once.
He determined before all, were ft
at tbo peril of his own life, to save
him who hud been unjustly uccused ;
but although he had mado up hla
mind to sacrifice himself, he could not
allow the frionda who had assisted
him to share his fate.
Accordingly, It was necessary tn
find means to get John Slough and
Paddy Cassan out of tho way, and
wait, before giving hlmsolf up, until
they wero In safety oa the other
side of the Channel. Robert did not
lose an Instant. Ho made tho faithful John write to ouo of his old comrades ut Whltstable who owned tt
bout which was lamed for her sailing qualities. HIio was to leavo England on tho receipt of tho letter, and
cruise about near Boulogne. Slough
was confident tliat his instructions
would be faithfully carried out; but
the voyage from the Thames to Boulogne demanded Bome little time.
Robert utilized the delny. The
arrest of the generous mun who was
suffering in his placo wns iccent
enough to be unknown to hla friends.
Robert succeeded by various methods
In contriving that this annoying
mlsndv onttire should not lio . noised
abroad. Before liberating au Innocent
man ho took measures to Bave his
reputation,   and he was successful.
The timo very soon camo
to repair to Boulogne. Tho Whltstable boat was standing off the
coast, and Robert's wounds were ln
a fair way to heal. Hie shoulder,
which bad lioen grievously -lashed by
Diego's sabro, still caused Mm much
puin; but, if need were, lie could
bear the Journey,
Ho went with bis two friends, in
ordor hlmsolf to see to thoir   snfe de
parture. They arrived without accident ut Boulogne, and the same
evening the fugitives stood together
on the shore at Portel, within gunshot of the boat which was to rescue
tbem.
There was enacted a touching
scene, the lust ln this long drama.
John and Paddy heard with despair
Robert's determination to give himsell
up to Justice. They could not understand the honorable scruples and the
generous feeling which prompted
tlieir master to accept the responsibility of tlio bloody deed at Montmartre, and they had ouly consented to
fly because * they thought that they
could persuade Robert at the last
moment to escape with thera to England. When the moment to bid farewell arrived poor John could not
control himself.
" Master," he cried, falling at Robert's foet, " In God's name, come
with us; do not leuvo your old servant liko this. You know well that
ho would a hundred times rather
share a French prison with you than
pass his old ugo fur from his master."
" It ls impossible, my dear
Slough," said Robert, hardly controlling his emotion. "I cannot allow un Innocent man to perish, and
your presonco ls necessary at Whlt-
stuble. And, liesldcs, Justice will give
an ear to ino. How can I be condemned ? In a fow mouths we shall
meet again."
John shook his bond and burst Into
tours. Ills grief bull communicated
Itself to Paddy, who clung, weeping,
to Roliert's clothes.
At this moment a group of men appeared at tho top of tho cliff, of
whose hostile Intentions there could
bo no doubt. They hailed the fugitives with threatening gestures, and
prepared to descenil aad surround
them. This sight restored nil Robert's energy.
" Not a word more," said ho, In a
firm voice; " I alono know what I
have to do. To hesitate to olicy me
would bo to compromise my design,,
to ruin me, perhaps. Throw yourselves into the sea without losing a
minute, gain tho vessel, und, once at
Whltstable, await my Instructions.
Your hand, John, and farewell."
Tho old sailor throw himself wcep-
tng Into his master's arms, and poor
Puddy, who bail stood aloof, timidly
seized Roliert's hand nnd covered It
with tears. A minute later two
faithful servants wero swimming
with all tholr strength towards tho
vessel, which thoy Boon reached, and
ln less thnn half nn hour the n-hlte
sail of the sloop bad disappeared in
tbo evening mist.

IHB HANAIMO CLIQUS
The idei nf li'iUlintf a litlle convention
down in Ndnrtimu to determine who
shall he ihc standard Uaier for the Con
servative-LibtraU'of ihis tfiatrict seems
exceedingly funny to us up here. In
what way, it'any, have we heen invited
to be represented ? I think it snfe to ..ay
that no one will go from this section with
authority lo represent any bod) but him
self.if indeed/myone goes at all. Wcmui
not be undent ood .1* objecting to Mv.
Llasliim as the propbsed nominee, It ii
tlie attempt ofa few politician, at one
point tn the district to dc tot-mine for
whom the Liberal-Conservatives residing
outside o( the "charmed .-pot", shall vote
Under the circumstances the Con*
servatives iviil vote according to thur
choice. Those who prefer Mr. Il.i**l;m
will support him'if he "comes oit'," but
not because a local convention puts him
forward. Mr. VV. \V. li. Mclnnis ii the
only candidate who thinks it worth whilt
to publish his views ui_(>n ihe questions
involved in the campaign in this part of
the district. Mr. Haslam of course is
not at this writing in the field and excusable, but why does Mr. Haggart think
it expedient to let th- people of Nanaimo
know his opinions upon public matters
through the columns of the Free Press
but carefully conceat them from ths
voters of this section. Perhaps the best
thing for our part ofthe district would i.e
to put up a candidate on both tickets.
If Wo aie not yet strong enough to sue
ceed in this way, we surely hold the bal-
ance of power if we act together.
A TflEAOHEUOUiJ   ELECTOR 6.TJ2
On June 23rd, the great body of Can*
ndiawyoters will go up to the polls to
voie-,-10 exercise onc of the must sacred
offices ever given to nun. Yet despite
the fact that to vote without first having
fully and judicially considered the relative merits of each party would be a
crime againgt the state, it is safe to state
that not onc lulf of those who mark ba!
l.-ts on that day will have considered both
sides of public questions. The Conser
vatives will vote blindly in favor ot Conservatives, and the Liberals will un
thinking!) cast their vole for Liberal
candidates. Ajudjewho would condemn
alt acctwscd persons brought before him
would be at once removed from thc
bench; a judge who allowed all such
persous to go free, would be loudly con
dsmned J and yet over fifty per cent, of
Canadian voters will perform just such
unreasonibte ancl inequitable action on
the 23 of June.    Such is party rule.
There is another class of voters which
may also be severely criticized. It consists of the men who, though their
names are on the voters1 lists, wilt refuse
to go to thc poll to make the cross which
will assist the one party or the other. If
voting is a sacred duty, then it is as
crimina. to refrain from doing it as to d��
it blindly and without consideration.
That a man does not approve of either
party is no excuse for his refusing to vote
for one or ttie other. Let liim choobe tht
one that comes tbe nearest his ideal, attempt to guide it in the way which seems
to him to be the best, and vote for ii
despite the discord bctucun thc real and
tbe ideal.
fcTlieu there is thc class of men���no one
H
will.ca'l them voters, for all voters are
not men-who vote in a certain way for
pecuniary profit, immediate  er  remote.
Our election laws for the prevention of
bribery are very strict, yet hundreds ���<���
dollars will be spent in every riding in
Canada to assist in the degradation of its
citisens and mcidently to secure votes.
I_**sh than six months ago, I stood beneath thf roof of Canada's greatest legislative hall and heard a leading party or-
gamzer remark that no mar. with any regard for his soul or with any sense of
hooi'i would remain on thc inside of
present Canadian politics; that both the
electors and tbe elected were stinking in
their rottenness. One is led to wonder
if these are some of the grand and
glorious benefits of government of the
people and for the people.
It is to be hoped that the better class
of citizens will not allow a treacherous
.electorate ar.d unscrupulous politicians tc
prevent a proper expression of true public opinion at the approaching quinquen-
nail general election.��� May Canadian

Ol the *' Liberal " Churches. Hu UUI ;
not join io the reqponilve reading ol
the prayers, nor dia he deny anything
that he has been in the habit ol ut- [
ftrming-i Nevertheless he Baid many
things with which tiie most orthodox
' could consistently endorse. One ol the
great works which ho said the
churches ought to Join in accomplishing is the abolition of standing
armies ami navies and the establishment ol an international court Ol arbitration, lie also spoke in favor of
the exemption from taxation of
cheap homes as a means of drawing
the poor from the tenements. On
the subject ui divorce tho culouel
said i
Marriage is n contract, and the
parties to thc contract are bound to
keep its provisions, and neither should
be released from such a contract unless In some way the interests of society are involve.. I would have the
law so that auy husband could obtain a divorce when the wife had persistently and flagrantly violated the
contract) sueh divorco to bo granted
on equitable terms. 1 w,ould give the
wife a divorce if Bue requested it, if
she wanted it. And I would do this
not only for her sake, but for the
sake of the community, of the nation.
AU children should be children of
love. All that are born should be sincerely welcomed. The children of
mothers who dislike or hate or loathe
the fathers will fill tho world with
insanity aud crime. Ko woman should
by law or by public opinion be forced
to live witli a man whom she abhors. There is no danger of demoralizing the world through divorce.
Neither is there any danger of destroying In the human heart that divine thing called lovo. Aa long as the
human race exists men and women
wil love each other, and just so long
there will be truo and perfect marriage. Slavery is not the soil or rain
of virtue.
I mako a difference between granting divorce to a man and to a woman
and for this reason: A woman dowers
her husband with her youth aud
beauty. lie should not be allowed to
desert her because she has grown
wrinkled and Old, Her capital is
gone, her prospecta in life lessened,
while, oa thu contrary, he may be
far better able to succeed than when
he married her. As a rule, tho man
can take care of himself, and, as a
rule, the woman needs help. So I
would not allow him to caat her off
unless ehe had flagrantly violated
the contract. But for the sake uf tho
community, and especially for t*ie
sake of the babies I would give her
a divorce for the asking.
There will never bo a generation of
great men until there has been a generation ol free women���of free
mothers.

Such a ono is Miss DruBCliltn
Shfngler, of Erin, Oat., who tells a
tale of pain endured through weary
years, ami of final relief aud cure
through the use of Dr. Williams' I'iuk
Pills, the greatest medicine of the age.
Miss Shlngler says: Twelve years ngo
I became afflicted with rheumatism,
iiom which I have suffered greatly.
Two years lator thta trouble was aggravated by a growth which started
in tho throat, aud which each year
became larger and larger, until it
finally becamo so bad that I could
hardly obtain any sleep, as when I
would lie down It would fill my
throat, causing a fooling of suffocation. What I Buffered is almost beyond description, and all the
medical aid I had did me no good,
and I was told that I could only
hope for relief through the medium
of ua operation. I dreaded such a
courso and declined undergoing the
operation. All this time the rheumatism waa taking a firmer hold
upon my systom, und I felt liko giving up in despair, I lost the power
of my limbs and my bands got so
bad that I could scarcely hold anything. At this stage a friend, who
from personal experience had strong
l'uith in Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills,
bought mo a supply and urged me
to try them. I thought I felt au
Improvement after I had used a little moro thnn a box, and atter using them for a few weeks tliere was
no longer room to doubt that they
wore helping me. I Was taking the
I'ink Pills la tho hope of finding relief from the rheumatism, but to my
great joy I found that the mediclno
was not only driving this painful malady from my system, but was also
driving away tlie growth ln my
throat. The result was that nfter
I htid used about a "dozen boxes of
Pink Pills I was completely cured,
and, although a considerable time
has now elapsed, 1 have not had a
recurrence of either trouble, nnd nm
enjoying tho best of health. For the
help my statement may be to others,
I am only too glad to add my testimony to the long list of wonderful
cures, such as mine, that have beon
wrought by the uso of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills.
This greatest of nineteenth century medicines positively cures all
troubles arising from a disordered or
weak stato of the blood, or shattered
nerves. If you are feeling weak, or
depressed, Dr. Williams Pink Pills net
as a prompt tonic, and if seriously
ill no other remedy can so promptly
restore you to health and strength.

Briefly touching upon the pruneness
to accept superstition and fancies for
proved facts, Mrs. Linton considers
the modern craze for missionary work
in unlikely and unsympathetic countries, where the lives of the missionaries are in danger, where the converts they make are, for the most
part, unredeemed pooundrels, and
where the civilization of the people is
(older and more compact than our
own, better suitod to the needs of the
people, and of the kind wherein morality, customs and religion are all
closely entwined. Separate them, and
the whole structure Is destroyed.
But this argument has no effect on
those whose craze it ls to carry the
Biblo into the far East, and to turn
bad Buddhists into worse Christians.
Nor do tliey pause to consider that
by their rash action���which tbey undoubtedly deem self-sncrificing, but Is
nono the less impertinent and meddlesome���they mny create a war
among the nations wherein thousands
upon thousands will be sacrificed.

piece leads them to seo Joy ln the

his alleged conversion may have cost

to lose her life at tho hands of barbarous unbelievers. ��� Exchange on

Evans saw It, and taking it for granted that it was her husband, obtained
a lawyer a advice, and was soon afterwards married to Mr. Geo. Greer,

his appearance in town. Ho says he
has been sailing ou tho Atlantic ami

TO REMOVE OLD PAPER.
During the spring renovating, if an
old wall paper Is to be removed, before going to work close the doors and

quicker and more easily.
IT IS ABSURD.
It is absurd to try to cure rheumatism with snrsaparillas, and tho ordinary advertised compounds which
aro recommended,tor the cure of almost every disease to which the
human flesh is heir.
This disease, as all know, is caused
by an acid poison in tho blood, and
can only be quickly and effectually removed by tlie use of an internal
remedy, which will neutralize it, nnd
thus destroy its Irritating propertiea.
The ingredients of South American
Rheumatic Cure have not been long
known, but are recommended by some
di the latest Euglish medical works as
being to rheumatism what quinine la
to ague, an absolute specific. The
first dose of the remedy gives perfect
relief, and it at once begins tbe
chemical process of neutralizing tho
acid oi the blood. It usually cures in
oue to three days.
AND THEY LAUGHED.
In a country school, tbe other day,
while a class of boys were being examined by the inspector on the different kinds of wood, one little chap was
asked to namo tho specimen (a piece

the moment forgot, and, hesitating a
little, the teacher inquired of what
material his mother's drawers wero
made. Ho at once replied, "Flannelette, sir," amidst a roar of laughter.

"The Royal Mail" sounds well, but

ISLE OF SANTA MARIA.
Santa Maria ls only thirtoen miles
long by less than nine miles wide, with
volcanic rocks, strewn all about alternated with beds uf llmeBtone, the
whole honeycombed beneath with Innumerable stnluctlte caverns, in which
labyrinthine passages it is said that
a boutmau muy lose lilmscll and never
find the light of day. Its industrious
people, some tyxw strong, manage to
raise everything for lheir own consumption, and to export considerable
wheat, besldeB the eattlo und pottery
before mentioned. I am not going to
weary you with a description of Its
principal town (also called Santa
Maria); for all Azoreun villages possess the same general features of narrow streets, cobble paved, and full of
sunshine, lined with rows ol tlle*roofed
���cottages of whitewashed volcanic
stone, with women spinning in the
Vloorway, und dogs und naked children
swarming in tlie plazas. The Idyllic
inn furnished us comfortable enter*
tainment���a window less room, large
enough for a towu hull, its high
posted bed "corded" with strips ot
rawhide, and piled with sujh a wealth
of husk mattresses that it needed a
ladder to scale it, and chairs���or
rather stools���of rawhide Btrlps
woven over a hollow framework.
Water for lavatory purposes was
placed In a pottery vessel, about the
size of a half barrel, which stood ln
one corner, with a Baucer-shapcd
utensil alongside that answered for
both bowl and dipper.
QUEER FUNERAL CUSTOMS.
The most interesting sight that
cuuio in our way at Santa Maria wus
a rather lugubrious one���a funeral. A
motley company came down the street
���four men marching gaily ahead, carrying a cofniu on their shoulders,
Cloaely followed by a priest lu cussack
und shovel hat, aud a red-frocked boy
bearing a crucifix, the rear brought
up by a crowd of stragglers, augmented at every street corner by fresh
recruits of the idle and curious.
There were no women in the procession, and nu " mourners"; for the
lust service over the deatl, uud the
last farewell of tho relatlvus, are
said ln the house. The coffin is left
quite open on Its way to the grave,
so tliat the body within Ib plainly
seen by passers-by aud people looking down from their bulconies or
housetops. According to tho Azoreun custom tlie funeral must take
placo within 48 hours after tlie
i deatli. The first uiglit tlie corpse
lies ln state, with candles at the feet
and head, a glass vessel of holy water at one side and nn Imago of tlie
blessed Virgin at the other.
The body of a young unmarried woman is always dressed ln white, a
matron ln black, and a man in the
clothes he wore while living. White
paper flowerB with a profusion of
uiost unnatural green leaves adorn
the corpse, and the relatives and
friends pass the night around It,
weeping and praying, and frequently
sprinkling the body by shaking over
It a small branch of an aromatic herb,
dipped ln the holy water. The following forenoon the church authorities come, place the corpse In the
coffin and ��� bear it to the cemetery ; while the house of mourning ls
closed, Its doors and blinds all shut,
and none may enter or leave It (or
a week. At the expiration of that
time the dally routine ol life begins
again and goes on as betore. Among
the wealthier class of the cities, and
nlways when a Government official
dies, the body lies In stato ln the
church, and the mournful sound of
tlie denth bell Is kept up Incessantly.
AN   AZOREAN  BALL.
"From grave to gay, from lively to
severe," is the rule in   remote     tit.
Mary's as In other parte of this tragic
world.   A   dead priest was lying   iu
tiie cathedral, and we learned that a
ball   was  in    progress at a private
house on another street. Through the
inn-keeper's wife we begged un invitation to tlie ball, which was promptly  and cordially given; and on the
way thereto we followed the throng
Into the cathedral where the prelate
was    holding   his     last     reception,
guarded   by  soldiers  and surrounded
by  lighted candles. The lady of the
two-room  casn   in  wliich the dance
was given greeted us with gentle and
dignified courtesy; and,   though,   no
doubt, we were us much "curiosities"
to most of her:   guests as they and
their ways wero to us, there was uo
vulgar  staring  nor anything to indicate that the appearance or    Las
Americans  wus  unusual. Indeed, one
may learn many lessons in fiolitenesB
from   these simple-hearted Azoreans.
The house was decorated with  ferae
and masses of bright blue hydrangeas,
and as we entered somebody was accompanying his voice on a viola and
singing the song which Is as common
In the Azores ns "Alter the Ball" is
in  tlie United States, beginning
"Quero  cantar  u   Knloistt
Ja  que outru nao sel."
The viola Is an Instrument peculiar
to    these   Islands���an   odd cross  between a guitar and a mandolin, but
its delicate music Is unlike tliat    of
any  other Instrument. It is used as
an accompaniment in all their singing
nnd dancing, and always iu the nightly serenades, without which no Azoreun maiden can be, won in marriage.
A favorite dauce is tho Ohama Rita,
which was to be danced at the ball
ln question, and could not begin until the lender came; and pending his
arrival there was much good-natured
Joking to the effect thnt it   always
tajtes a violinist three months to get
really for a ball. Presently he came���
a handsome fellow, attired   like    a
Spanish  brigand,  in coruuroy ' knee-
breeches,   bluck-bralded   Jacket    bordered  with velvet and broad scarlet
sash���singing, smoking, twanging his
viola     and     dancing     threo    steps
nnd     a     shuffle     as     he    entered.
One     by     one     the     men    fell   In
behind   him,   cacli   taking the same
three    little  steps   and shuffle,   till
there was a circle around the room;
and ono by one tliey    beckoned   the
women Iu,  all hopping together like
so many chickens on a hot   griddle.
The leader, meanwhile, banged away
on his viola, and chanted at the top
of his voice lu a monotonous recitative, fn which the words Choina Rita
and Bella Mia   frequently   occurred;
and the rest J.-rfned the chant at Intervals, snapping their fingers    high
nbove their heads to mark the time,
us with castanets.    The dance consists of a polka step, with a great
deal of ''balancing to partners," and
"ladles chunge" aud "grand right and
left," not unlike our old-fashioned cotillion ; and occasionally they paired
off for a little waltz.   There seems to
be   no    regular   sequence   for    the
changes of the dance.    As the spirit
moves them the   participants,   male
und femule, burst Into a loud recitative, at which the rest laugh and applaud, and somebody else takes it up
and adds to it in the same b train. This
recitative, chanted to tho tune of the
viola, Is always improvised,   and    is
made the vehicle for sharp personalities or for good-natured Joking at the
expense of those jvho are suspected of
being in love, and so tho racket went
on���the  shouting   of   the  song,   the
twanging of the viola, the snapping
of the fingers, until everybody   was
tired. Then pending refreshments and
a brief* rest, each gentleman asks Ids
partner whom ehe desires to   dance
with next.  It ls considered the polite
thing for her to ejgnlfy a wish to continue with him, but If she prefers another, partner number one must   go
and ask  the more favored fellow to
take   his   placo.    There   are   other
dances, notably the   Chiirumba   and
the Saudade, and tlie gayest uf all,
whose name 1  have forgutton, witl
which tlie ball ls generally concluded.
It ls not unlike our Virginia reel, tlie
dancers forming lu lino and galloping
down the middle by couples Iu a scries
ol balancings marvellous to    behold.
METRICAL CONTESTS.
Tho Azoroan peasantry, poor   aud
hurd-worked as thuy seem to be, are
extrumcly fond of music,  and nothing gives tliom bo much pluusure as
strumming upon   a    viola.    Hut tlie
music alwuys consists of a few monotonous BtraluB, uvea that of    lovelorn ltoiuous   beneath their   sweethearts'    windows.    Another favorite
recreation Is the provlsitatiou, whore
two persons alternately sing rhymed
couplets, which they " mako up   us
they go ulong," lor tlio amusement
of tho listeners. Tlie musical flow ol
tlie language and the similarities   ol
the word  endings���mostly a or o���
render this an easy  accomplishment.
An American gentleman who recently visited tliese Islands has this    to
sny of tho pootlc tournumeuts j "All
nature   seems to Inspire    the rustic
song. The   country lads and lasses,
even when laboring In the fields, challenge   each other to itoetrlcal   contests,   and often two  lovers,   fields
apart, will sing to each other all day
long, ae cheerfully   ae  the canaries
and blackbirds In tho hedges around
them. The shepherd boy will serenade
a companion on a distant hill, using
a rude sort of instrument from     a
cow's horn and a long stem of bamboo. Upon tliis he plpee. like the god
Pan, ln mellow tunes, until the hills
and valleys echo the sweet   muslo of
his yodel. Often a man, for lack of
a companion, will whistle each second verae of his song ln a higher key,
to repreeont Ids   mlstreBS, or chant
one line In a bass voice and tho next
ln tenor, with the same Intent.   So,
too, the country dnuces are per- J
formed, not alone to the melody of '
the guitars, but to the rhythm of
song as well, and the chamartt will
set both voice and feet snapping fingers In motion with Its merry, voluptuous strains, whether played ln
the public square, at the rural husking*, or at the Sundny fandango In
some flowery garden."

In Arizona In tiie last few weeka from

concerning the terrible, venomous
nature ol the reptile. Without
doubt, the Gllti monster of the alkali
plains and tlie hot, dry mountoln canyons ot Arizona aud the State ol
Sonura, lu Mexico, Is the deadliest
Venomous 'Tea te re known to the natural history of North America. The
Pima, Apache, Maricopah and Yuma

and will even go many miles to rid

Much of the truo Inner nature of au I
Individual may bo Interpreted by the
shape as well as by ''.���.��� br litOMI ��'id
intelligence ol the eje. Here are some
of tho recognized types. As each reveals somo definite traits of character, that may be easily detected at n
glance, it ls Interesting to observe
their meaning.
When    tho   eye ie straight,   finely
tlio euuutry ol one uf tliese reptiles,
which they regard as the most lo be
dreaded ol anything tliat crawls.
Among tho Cocopiths of Lower Culi-
lorniu the tribal belief is thut the
most lunrful vengeance that may
come to tlie spirit bodies ol bad Indians alter this life is to be bitten
by a nit Gila monster that roams
unseen by mortal eyes over the adobe
plains waiting to snap at tlio red-
skinned savages inimical to tiie great
spirit chief.
(Jila monster ls a ridiculous misnomer. The reptile ls u combination
of the basilisk of India and Java and
tlie common rattlesnake of this country. It has a counterpart in a reptile found ln the lava beds of the
Hawaiian islands, but is much the
dendlier ot the two. It is about
twenty inches in length and in girth
ubout tlie size of a boy'B arm. Its
tail is one-third of the body and It
has a mottled or striped skin in reddish yellow und dark brown. Its
mouth is similar in shape to that of
an alligator, and its little black eyes
have tlie sleepy appearance of those
of the alligator family. A true
saurian, It has four stubby legs,
shaped and placed like those of a
lizard, but It has none of the rapidity of motion of tlie lizurd. It ls
never found in damp, cool epots, but
lu the hottest sand or in the driest
sun-baked soli. Rattlesnakes do not
stay In the heat that the Gila monster enjoys, und It ls doubtful If even
a salamander could stand a dally
temperature of 130 degrees for
hours, which the Arizona Gila monster grows (at on during midsummer
weeks.
The head of the Gila monster ls
much like tliat of the boa constrictor,
and the teeth are in double rows,
thick and very sharp. When tho reptile bites���it never springs or strikes
Its victim, but Just simply- bites���It
means business, for tlie grasp of the
Jaws is something marvellous. Anything once caught between these two
double rows of teeth is held as if In
a vise-like steel trap. The Indians
have a saying that the genuine Gila
monster will not release a piece of
flesh between its Jaws until the big
spirit lu the mountains causes a
thunder, even if it takes all summer.
It ls known by both whites and savages on the deserts of the territory,
that it ls worso than useless to attempt to forco tho Gila monster to release Its hold upon any person or animal, fur that only increases the
wound, and the reptile ln a rage manufactures fresh vonum iu Its polBon
sacks In the roof of the mouth and
injects it into tho cut nnd torn flesh.
The Gila monster is always killed
first when it has bitten a human
being and then its Jaws aro cut uud
pulled away from the wound. A small
Gila monster, witli a head not over
two inches long and Jaws an iuch aud
one-half in length, has been known to
bite a man's leg near tho ankle
through tho flesh inul into tlie very
bone. Tho Maricopah Indians tlo not
utteinpt to release a member of their
tribe who has been bitten by a Gila
monster from the dreaded little Jaws,
and it Is generally believed tliat thoy
end the sufferings of any hapless victim among themselves by a deadly
bluw on tne head. They say they
know no cure fur tho poison of the
reptiles.

Such persons are not disposed to be
suspicious. They feel and express emotions readily; take an optlmlBtlc view
of life, and net quickly upon Impulse.
Sincere nnd nrdent In their attachments, they are more "sentimental
than passionate. Height ol the opening lids discloses nobility nnd elevation
of character, but, when excessive,
there ls lack of tact and too much

CITIZENS INDIGNANT AT HIM.-
Wilkesbarre despatch says: To-day
Mayor Nichols was guilty of a Ircak
which has sot the towu by the curs.
Citizens were astonished by the appearance on tlie street this nfternoon
,of a most unusual spectacle���a woman
walking around, wearing upon her
bnck a big white card on which wna
printed in large black letters the
words:
I I AM A SHOE THIEF. LOOK OUT. |
FIGURE 2.
Persons with nnrrow, half-closed
eyes, like figure 2, are more reserved,
watchful of danger and cautious.
There is a scll-restruint ln their expressions, and a disposition to conceal
facts, disguise their sentiments and
dissimulate their feelings ln relation to
all matters jn which they are concerned. It Is, therefore, very difficult
to draw n secret from them, or to get
a direct answer to a question. They
are sinuous.

appointed Commissioner of the Salvation Army forces In Canada, Newfoundland nnd Northwest America.
Tlila information waa cablod to tho
Toronto headquarters ol the nrmy by
the Goneral from London, Eng., Inst
evening, und wub received with warm
feelings of gratification.

Booth's resignation she waB sent to
the United States to take tomfiorary

proof of tho General's high regard for
tho Interests of the work here.

LITTLE BRAGGARTS.
Dr. M W. Stryker, President of
Hamilton College, told this story the
other day in an address before the
Hardware Club: "The braggart
spirit anywhere is absurd. Some little
school girls (It la chroulclod of Chicago) were discussing their clothes.
' I've a lovely new dross,' said one,
��� and I am going to wear It to church
next Sunday.' 'Poohl' "aid another,
' I've a new hat, and I'm going to
wear It every day.'' W'oll,' suid a third,
' I've got heart disease, anywny I' "
FIGURE '1.
Tho drooping of the upper llita (see
liguro 4) ls a sign of strong desire to
accumulate property ol all sorts. Persons witb this eye will not only work
hard to acquire money, -but also
knowledge, position, power and
friends. They are olten talented and
nre usually fond of games of chance.
A big policeman lollowed close behind her to prevent her displacing the
sign or running away, and thus Bhe
was olillgod to walk through ull the
principal streets.
The woman Is Mrs. Sarah Jones.
Early tide nlternoon, while wulklng
along the street with a large basket on her arm, she coolly took a pair
ol men's shoes from the stand ln front
of Bahny's shoe store, dropped them
ln her basket and* hurried on. One of
the clerks, however, had seen her. He
followed her until he met a policeman
and had her arrested. The woman was
at once taken belore the Mayor. Her
only excuse was:
"Oh, Your Honor, me old man has
no shoes und I hud to take 'em bo he
could go out and do some work, for
me and the children have nothing to
eat."
"Now, Hrf. Jones," he snid, "I will
give yuu your choice of two things,
for I mean to punish yon. I will either
Bend you to Jail to uwalt trial, and
tliat will mean a confinement of a
month before the Grand Jury meets
and tho sentence after your trial, or
yuu can wulk ubout tho town for one
hour with a sign upon your back telling everybody who sees yon that you
are a thief und that yuu are -tu bo
watched."
The woman readily agreed*to thin
unusual proposition, und the ��� Muyor
and his secretary made the sign. With
tlds fastened around her neck nnd
lumglng frum her neck to below her
waist, and escorted by a policeman,
the woman was made to parade the
principal streets,, chiefly around and
nround the public Bquure in tlio heart
of the city.
The woman had not gone a block
from the Mayor's office belore a Crowd
was following lier, sinnll boys hooting
and shouting "Thief! Thief I" "Steal
eome more shoes, will'you V" "Now,
will you be good V" and other expressions.
Older persons, though, who saw the
ppectnele, were deeply Impressed, uml
a"great many were very much Incensed ut what was termed a public
outrage, and ou ull sides the Mayor
was severely Condemned. Had he
foreseen the results of his novel mode
of punishing the woman he would
probably have let hor go free before
making lier publicly parade her guilt.
BRADSTREETS, ON TRADE.
Country roadways continue heavy,
uud tho distribution of merchandise
remains slow, notwithstanding that
BUnimer freight rutca ure In force.
Montreal and Toronto both report a
moderate volume of wholesale business and say the prospect is better.
No Improvement In sales by wholesale houses Is reported Irom Halifax,
whore provision and produce nro dull
and prices low. Advices from tho Newfoundland sealing fleet aro less favorable. Bank clearings at Winnipeg,
Hamilton, Montreal, Toronto nnd
Halifax amount to $18,500,000, nearly (I per cont. less than tlio previous
week and almost 1 per cent, more
than thnt in tlie corresponding week
a year ago. Business failures In Canada number 7H1 for the past quarter against CHI In tho final quarter
of IK'Jfi, with total liabilities of .$'>,-
768,000 against 84.288,000 inst year.
Tlie Province of Ontario reports S3

first quarter of 1895. and Quebec
Ul) more. Liabilities of falling traders In Ontario, however, nro smaller than a yoar ago, while thoso In

HOW TO HANG DP A JACKET.
She li an unwise woman who hangs
flp her Jackets by a loop at the back
uf the neck. It makes* tho coat sag
where the strain cornea,'nnd It gives It
a dragged and droopy appearance. If
loops aro used at all tliey should be
at the armholos, and so put on na to
stand uptight, nnd nro not stretched
across nn Inch or so of space. This
obviates the pulling at the cloth. But
the best way to keep a coat fresh and
tn good shape te to keep It, when not
In actiio service, on a wooden hanger.
