n. ween nan now prussea since ine
inquest, and, while ifisH Tuttle still
remained at liberty, it was a circumscribed liberty which must have
been very galling to one ol her temperament and habits. She rode anil
sho walked, but shs entered no house
unattended nor was shs allowed uny
communication with Mr. Jeffrey.
Nevertheless she snw him, or at least
gave him tho opportunity of seeing
her. Each day at three o'clock she
rods through K Street, and the detective who watched Mr. Jeffrey's house
said that sho never passed it without turning her faco to the sccond-
story window, whore he invariably
stood. No signs passed between
them; indeed, they' scarcely nodded;
but her lace, as she lilted it to n.eet
his eye, showed so marked a serenity and wan so jiltm/rllier hnaiitlf"!
...J,, uns same detective hud a desire to see if it maintained like characteristics when she was not within
reach of her brother-in-law. Accordingly, the next day he delcguted his
*>)>lace to another and took his stand
^farther down    the street.     Alas!    it
"was not  the  same  woman's  face  lie
. saw; but a far different and sadder
one. She wore that look ol courage
and brave hope only in passing Mr.
.lellrcy's house. Was it simply an
expression  of her secret  devotion  to
*'him or the signal of some compact
wliich had been entered into between
Whichever it    was,  it  touched  my
heart,  even  in his description  of   it.
-,.'After    advising    with     Jinny  1  ap-
. prooched tho superintendent, to
whom,    without    further  reserve,    I
. opened my heart.
The next day I found myself on
the train bound for Tumpa, with full
"authority to follow Curly Jim until
I found him.
When I started on this desperate
seurch after u witness, war had been
declared, but no advance as yet ordered on  Cuba.    But during my joui-
iujv south    the long expected    event
happened,    and on    my    arrival     ln
Tampa I found myself in the   midst
of departure and everything in    confusion.
Of course, under such conditions it
was dillicult to lind my man on tho
instant. Innumerable inquiries yielded no result, and in the absence of
.■ any one who would or could give me
the desired information I wandered
from one end of the camp to tho
other till I finally encountered a petty officer who gave signs of being
a Hough Rider. Him I stopped, and,
with some hint of my business, asked where James Calvert could be
llis answer was a stare and a gesture toward tho hospital tents.
Nothing could have astonished me
"Sick?" I cried.
"Dying," was his answer.
Dying! Curlv Jim! Impossible. 1
, had misled iny informant as to the
exact man I wanted, or else there
were two James Calverts iu Tumpa.
Curly Jim, the former cowboy, was
not the fellow to succumb in cninp
before ho had ever smelt powder.
"It Is James Calvert of the First
Volunteer Corps 1 am after," said
I.   "A stiirdv  follow—"
"No doubt, no doubt. Many
sturdy follows are down. He's dowu
to stay. Typhoid, you know. Dad
case. No hopo from the sturt. Pity
but "
"I heard no more. Dying! Curly
Jim. He who was considered to be
immune.   He whb hold tho secret—
"Let   ma see   him,"    I demanded.
"It id important—a police matter—a
word from him may save a life.    He
• is still breathing?"
"Yes, but I do not think thero is

Weill I was woefully done up by
this sudicn extinction of all my
hopes. They had been extravagant,
no doubt, but they had sustained me
through all my haps and mishaps,
trials and dangers, till now, here,
they ondeil with the one Insxornblo
fact—death. Was I doomed to defeat, then? Must I go back to the

all m.ans of reaching the stats of

coding ner marriage were gone. I
could never learn now what to know

Bending .inder thin stroke of Providence, I passed out. A little boy
was sol,I unil at Ihe tent door. I
stared at nim curiously, and was
hurrying on, when I felt myself
, caught by the hand.
"Take me with you," cried a chok-

"I havo no Iricnd here, now ho is

Washington! I turned and looked
at the lad who, kneeling In the hot
sand at iho door of the tent, was
clutching nie with imploring hands.
"Who are you?" I asked; "and how
camo you here? Do you belong to
the army?"
"I helped care for his horse," he
Whispered. "He found me smuggled

turmoil of departing troops, I heard

I felt my heart go down, then up,
up, beyond anything I had ever experienced in my wholo life. Tho way
before me was not closed then. A
witness yet remained, though Jim
was dead. The boy was oblivious of
my emotion; he was staring with
great mournfulnesa at the tent.
"And what was that?" said I.
His attention, which had been wun-
dering, came buck, and it was with
some surprise he said:
"It was not much. She told him
to takr ; gentleman Into tho library. But it was tho library whero
men died, and he Just went and died
there, too, you remember, and Jim
said he wasn't over going to speak
of it, and so I promised not to, neither, but—but—whon do you think
you will bo starting, sir?"
I did not answer him. I was feeling
very queer, as men feel, I suppose,
who In some crisis or event recognize an unexpected interposition ol
"Aro you tho boy who rnn away
from tho florist's in Washington?" I
inquired when ready to speak. "The
boy who delivered Miss Moore's bridal bouquet?"
"Yes, sir."
I let go of his hand and sat down.
Surely thoro was a power greater
than chance governing this matter.
Through what devious ways and from
what unexpected sources had I come
upon  this  knowledge.
"Mrs. Jeffrey, or Miss Moore, as
she was then, told Jim to scat the
gentleman in ths library," I now
said.    "Why?"
"I do not know. Ho told her tho
gentleman's namo and then she whispered him that. I heard her, and
that was why I got money, too. But
it's all gone now. Oh, sir, when are
you going back?"
I started to my feet. Was lt ln
answer to this appeal or because I
realized that I had come at last upon a clue calling for lmmediato action?
"I am going now," said I, "and
you aro going wilh me. Uunl for the
train wo tuke leaves inside of ten
minutes.    My  business here is over."
Words eon not oxprosa tho tedlous-
nens of that return Journey. Tho affair which occupied all my thoughts
was as yet too much envoloped in
mystery for mo to contemplate lt
with anything but an anxious and inquiring mind. While I clung with
now and persistent hope to tho
thread which hud been put In my
hand, I waa too conscious of the
maze through which wo must yet
pass, before the light could be reached, to feel that lightness of spirit
which in itself might have lessened
the hours, end inado boarable those
days of forced inaction. To beguile
the way a littlo, I made a complete
analysis of the facts as they appeared to me in ths light of this latest
bit of evidence. The result was not
strikingly oncournging, yet I will Insert lt, If only in proof of my diligence and tho extremo Interest I experienced in each and evory stago of
this perplexing alTulr. It again took
tho form of a summary and road oa
Facts as they now appear:
1.—Tho peremptory demand for an
Interview which had been dellvorcd
to Miss Moore during tho hall-hour
preceding her marriage had come, not
from the bridegroom aa I had supposed, but from the so-called stranger, Mr. Pfolffer.
2. Her reply to this demand had
been an order for that gentleman ta
b» seated  in  ths library.
3. The messenger carrying this ordor had been met and earnestly talk,
ed with bv Ur.. J affray either Unwed..
ataly before or linmemaieiy arter tne
aforementioned gentleman had been
so seated.
4. Death reached Mr. Pfelffer before the bride did.
5. Miss Mooro remained in ignorance of this catastrophe till after her
marriage, no intimation of the same
having been given her by the few
persons allowed to approach her before she descended to her nuptials;
yot sho was seer, to shrink unaccountably when her husband's lips
touched hers, and when Informed of
tho dreadful event before which she
beheld all her gue_ts fleeing, went
from the house a changed woman.
6. For all this proof that Mr.
Pfeiffer was well known to her, if
not to the rest of the bridal party,
no acknowledgment of this was made
by any of them then or afterward,
nor any contradiction given either bv
husband or wife to the accepted
theory that this seeming stranger
from the West had gone into this
fatal room ot tho Moores' to gratify
his own morbid curiosity.
7. On tho contrary, an extraordinary effort was immediately mado by
Mr. Jeffrey to rid himself of tho onlv
witness who could toll the truth
concerning those fatal ton minutes;
but this brought no peace to the
miserable wife, who never saw a
really happy moment.
8.—Extraordinary efforts at concealment argue extraordinary causes
for fear. Fully to understand the
circumstances of Mrs. Jeffrey's death,
it would be necessary first to know
what had happened In tho Moore
house when Mr. Jeffroy learned from
Curly Jim that the man, whose hold
upon his bride had been such that he
dared to demand an interview with
her Just as she was on the point of
descending to her nuptials, had been
seated, or was about to be seated,
In the room where death had once
held its court and might easily bs
persuaded to hold court again.
This was the limit of my conclusions. I could get no further, and
awaited my arrival in Washington
with the greatest impatience. But
once there, and tho responsibility of
this new inquiry shifted to broader
shoulders than my own, I was greatly surprised and as deeply chagrined
to observe the whole affair lag unaccountably and to note that, in spits
of my so-called Important discoveries, the prosecution continued working up the case against Miss Tuttle
in manifest intention of presenting
it to the grand jury at it fall sitting.
Whether Durbin was to blame for
this I could not say. Certainly his
look was more or less quizzical when
next we met, and this nettled mc so
that I at once came to the determination that whatever was In his
mind, or in the minds of the men
whose counsels he undoubtedly shared, I was going to make one more
great effort on my own account; not
to solve the main mystery, which
had passed out of my hands, but to
reach the hidden cause of the equally
unexplained deaths which had occurred from time io time at the library
For nothing could now persuade
me that the two mysteries wero not
indissolubly connected, or that tha
elucidation of the one would not lead
to the elucidation of the other.
To bo sure, it was well accepted at
headquarters    that all    possible    at-
tempts had been made in this   direction and with nothing but  fuilui. u:
a result.    The lloor, the hearth,    il-
chimney, and, above all, the old s
tie,     had been  thoroughly    seurchi
But to no avail.   The secret hail n
boen reached and had almost come
be looked upon as unsolvablc.
But I was not one to bo affected I
other men's failures. The ciicourn-.
ment afforded me bv my late discoveries was such that I felt confident
that nothing could hindci my success
save the necessity of completely
pulling down the house. Besides, all
investigation had hitherto started, if
it had not ended, in tho library. I
was resolved to begin work ln quito
a different spot. I had not forgotten
the sensations I had experienced in
tho southwest chamber.
During my absence this house had
boon released from surveillance. But
tho major still held the keys and I
had no difficulty in obtaining them.
The next thing was to escape its
owner's vigilance. This I managed
to do through the assistance of Jinny, and when midnight came and all
lights went out in tho opposite cottage I entered boldly upon the
As before, I went first of ell to the
library. It was important to know
nt the outset that this room was in
its normal condition. But this was
not my only reason for prefacing my
now efforts by a visit to this sceno
of death and mysterious horror. I
had another, so seemingly puerile,
that I almost hesitate to mention it
end would not if the sequel warranted its omission.
I wished to make certain thnt I
had exhausted every suspected, as
woll as overy known clue, to tho Information I sought. In my long
Journey homo and the hours of
thought it had forced upon mo, I
had more than onco been visited b.v
flitting visions of things seen in this
old house and afterward nearly forgotten. Among these was the book
which on that flrst night of hurried
search had given proofs of being in
soma one's hand within a very short
period. The attention I had given it
at a moment of such haste was necessarily cursory, and when lator a
second opportunity was granted me
of looking Into It again, I had allowed a very slight obstacle to deter
mo. This was a mistake I wus anxious to rectify. Anything which had
boen touched with purpose at or near
tho time of ao mystorious a tragody
—and the position of this book on a
shelf so high that a chair was needed to reach it proved that it had
been sought and touched with purposo—held out the promise of a clue
which one on so blind a trail as myself could not afford to Ignore,
But when I had taken th* book
down and read again Its totally uninteresting and unsuggestive title
and, by another reference to its dim
and faded leaves, found that my memory hnd not played me false and that
it contained nothing but stupid and
wholly irrelevant statistics, my confidence in it as a possible aid in
tho work I had In hand departed Just
as it had on the previous occasion. I
was about to put it buck on tho
shelf, when I bethought mo of running my hand In behind tho two
hooks between which it had stood.
Ah! that wos It! Another book lay
flat against tho wall at the back of
tho shelf; and when, by the removal
of those In front 1 Wns enabled to
draw this book out. I soon saw why
it had boen relegated to such a remote place of concoalment on the
•helves of the Moore library.
It was a collection of ob'scuro memoirs written bv an English woman
who had been In America during the
early pnrt of the century, and who
had been brought more or less into
contact with tho mysteries connected
with the Moore houso in Washington.
Several passages were marked, one
particularly, by a heavy pencil-lino
running the length of the margin. As
the namo of Moore was freely scattered through theso passages as well
as through two or three faded newspaper clippings which I discovered
pasted on the inside cover, I lost no
timo in setting about their perusal.
Tho following extracts are from the
book itself, taken in the order In
which I found thein marked:
"It was about this time that I
spent a week in the Mooro houso;
that grand and historic structure
concerning which and its occupants
so many curious rumors are afloat.
I know nothing then of its discreditable fame; but from the first moment
of my entrance into its ample and
well lighted halls I experienced a sensation which I will not call dread,
but which certainly was fnr from being tho impulse of pure delight which
the graclousness of my hostess and
the Imposing character of tho place
lts-lf wore calculated to produce.
Thla omotion woe but transitory,
vanishing, as was natural, in the
exciUrjicnt of my welcome and tho extraordinary Interest I took in Callis-
ta Moore, who In those days was a
most lascinating littlo bodv. Small
to tho point of appearing diminutive,
and lacking all assertion in mnnnor
and bearing, _ho was nevertheless
such a lady that sho easily dominate
ed all who approached her, and produced, quite against her will I am
sure, an impression of aloofness seasoned with kindness, which made her
a most snrprising and entertaining
study to the analytic observer. Her
position as nominal mistress of an
establishment already accounted one
of the finest in Washington—the real
owner, Reuben Moore, preferring to
live abroad with his French wife-
gave to her least action an Importance which her shy, if not appealing
looks, and a certain strained expression most difficult to characterize,
vainly attempted to contradict. I
could not understand her, and soon
gave up the attempt, but my admiration held firm, and by the timo the
evening was half over I was her
obedient slave. I think from what I
know of her now that she would have
preferred to be mine.
"I was put to sleep in a great
chamber which I afterward heard
ealled 'The Colonel's Own.' It was
very grand and' had a great bed in it
almost royal in its size and splendor. I believe that I shrank quito
unaccountably from this imposing
piece of furniture whon I first looked
at it; lt seemed so big and so out
of proportion to my slim little body.
But admonished by tho look which I
surprised on Mistress Callista's highbred face, I quickly recalled an expression so unsuited to mv position
as guest, and, with a gush of well-
simulated rapture, begun to expatiate upon the interesting characteristics of the room, and express myself
as delighted at the pros-pert of sleeping there.
"Instantly tho nervous look left
her, and, with the quiet remark, 'It
was my father's room,' sho set down
the candles with which both her
hands wero burdened, and gave me a
kiss bo warm and surcharged with
feeling that it sufficed to keep me
happy and comfortable for a half-
hour or more after she passed out.
"I had thought myself a very
sleepy girl, but when, after a somewhat lengthened brooding over
the dying embers in tho open fireplace, I lay down behind the curtains of the huge bed. I found myself as far from sleep as I had ever
been in my wholo life.
"And I did not rccovor from this
condition for the ontire night. For
hours I tossed from one sido of the
bed to the other in my efforts to
avoid the persistent eyes of a scar-
cely-to-be-percclved drawing facing
mo from the opposite wall. It had
no merit as a picture, this drawing,
but soen aa it was under tho rays of
a gibbous moon looking in through
tho half-open shutter, it exercised
upon me a spell such as I can not
describe and hope never again' to experience. Finally I rose and pulled
the curtains violently together across
the foot of the bed. This shut out
tho picture; but I found it worso to
Imagine it there with its haunting
eyes peering at me through the intervening folds of heavy damask
than to confront It openly; so I
pushed tho curtains back again, only
to riso e half-hour later and twitch
them desperately together onco more.
"I fidgeted and worried so that
night that I must havo looked quite
palo when my attentive hostess met
mo at the head of the stuirs tho
next morning. For her hand shook
quite perceptibly ns 6ho grasped
mine, and her voico was pitched in
no natural key as she Inquired how
I had slopt. I replied, as truth, if
not courtesy, domunded, 'Not as well
as usual,' whoroupon her eyes foli
and sho remarked quito hurriedly, 'I
am so sorry; you shall havo another
room to-night,' adding, in what up-
[loarod to be au unconscious whisper:
'There is no uso; all feel it; oven tho
young and tho gay' ; then aloud nnd
with irropresslblo anxiety: 'You
didn't seo anything, dear?'
" 'No!'' I protested in suddenly
awakened dismay; 'only tho strango
eyes of that quoor drawing peering
at me through tho curtains of my
bod.   Is lt—is it a haunted room?'
"Her look wns a shocked ono, her
protest quito vehemont. 'Oh, no!
No ono has ever witnessed anything
liko a ghost there, but every ono
finds it impossible to sleep In that
bed or even in tho room. I do not
know why, unless It is that my father spent so many weary years of in-
cossant wakefulness inside its walls.'
" 'And did ho die in that bed?' I
"Sho gave a startled shiver, end
drow  me hurriedly  downstairs.      As
~. pauscu ni, tne root, she pressed
my hand and whispered:
" 'Yes; at night; with the full of
the moon upon him.'
"I answered her look with ono she
probably understood as little as I
did hers. I had heard of this father
of hers. He had been a terrible old
man and had left a terrible memory
behind him.
"Tho next day my room was changed according to her promise, but in
the light of tho charges I have since
heard uttered against that house and
tho family who inhabit it, I am glad
that I spent one night in what, if it
was not a haunted chamber, had certainly a very thrilling effect upon its

Baked Apples.
Apples, ln addition to being a dell-
clous fruit, make a pleasant and valuable medicine. A raw apple Is digestible in an hour and a half, while boiled
cabbage requires five hours. Tbe most
healthful dessert that can be placed on
a table ls a linked apple. If eaten frequently at breakfast with bread and
butter, without meat of any kind, lt
has an admirable effect on the general
system, often removing constipation,
correcting acidities nnd cooling off febrile conditions more effectually thnn
tbe most approved medicines. If families could be Induced to substitute apples, ripe and sound, for pics, cakes
snd sweetmeats, with which their children are frequently stuffed, there
would be a diminution in the total
sum of doctors'.bills In a single year
sufficient to lay in a stock of this delicious fruit for the whole season'!
Care Of Book..
If books were rightly treated when
they are newly bound there would ba
less likelihood of their backs being
broken afterward by rough handling.
The covers should be opened ono at a
time and laid as far back as the table
upon which the book ls resting; then
gradually all the leaves, a few at tbe
back and a few at tho front of tho
book, should be laid upon the covers.
The book will then be ln condition for
ordinary wear, and the covers will not
break awny lf not abused. When culled
suddenly away from a book which you
are rending do not lay It face down on
a table nor throw a handkerchief between its leaves, but have a book
marker handy and place it betweeu
the leaves, closing the book.

Editor and Proprietor of the Treherne
One of the peculiarities of Western
Canadian journalism is the fact that
towns—as they are by courtesy called
in a country as yet sparsely populated, though elsewhere they would be
deemed pretentious lf they ranked
themselves as villages—with but a
hundred or two people, publish good
newspapers. To one whose knowledge of newspaper work is derived
from acquaintance with British or
even Eastern cities, no fact is more
notable or remarkable than this, ln
those older communities a dense
population Is a sine quo non for any
publishing enterprise. A man would
bo considered ill-advised and rash indeed who undertook to establish a
paper in any place the population of
which could be represented by less
than four figures. To start a paper
in a little village of two or three hundred was to merely invite contingent
snd certain financial disaster, and to
jeopardise any reputation for business
sagacity the promoter might heretofore
have possessed, but to forfeit all sympathy when the Inevitable failure
came,, since, among all who had an;
pretensions to knowledge, the failure
would be the certain reward of business folly In starting a venture In
which success was impossible. But
Western Canada Is proverbially a
country where all signs fall. It is not
safe to predicate with certainty that
because- a thing has failed everywhere else it will therefore of necessity fail in the West. Indeed, it would
sometimes seem that the exact converse is the case. From methods of
farming to methods of fishing the
West is a law unto itself, and what
is true ln many other lines of activity
is equally true ln the newspaper business. The Canadian West can point
to many examples of successful nnd
flourishing newspapers, which give
good livings to their publishers, which
wield considerable influence, and that
not alone ln their immediate locality,
Which nre conducted with marked
ability, and which are published In
prosperous littlo towns and villages'
of less than three hundred popula
tlon. And, of this numerous class ol
country papers, few aro more repre
sentntlve and successful than the Tre
heme Times, nnd few better known
than its founder, publisher, editor and
proprietor, Mr. ErneBt J. McMillan.
Mr. McMillan comes of a well
known family. Every knight o' the
besom an' stane in the Dominion
knows, by repute at least, his father,
William McMillan. Under his pen-
name of "Hayseed" his curling songs
have been quoted nnd sung wherever
the cry of "soop 'er up!" is sounded,
whether oh the indoor rinks of Canada or the ice-covered loch of the
Land o' Cakes. And his sketches and
comments on current events, tinged
with shrewd sense, panky humor and
homely philosophy, are remembered
yet by many Westerners, who regret
that for. some few years they have been
discontinued. While Mr. McMillan's
father is a well known nnd outstanding figure, his brothers are almost
equally so, though iu different phases
of activity. A sketch of his brother
Adam has already appeared In this
series. He was then the editor and
proprietor of the Virden Advance, and
before going Into Journalism had had
a distinguished professional and military career, he and his brother serving with such distinction through
tho South African war as to be rewarded with commissions.
The editor of tho Treherno Times
has had no such record. It Ib not
given to every member of a family to
be famous, and perhaps the fact that
his father and his elder brothers were
to a certain extent "under the limelight" militated somewhat against
Ernest, if, indeed he had any ambitions in that direction. Some one has
said that those lives are happiest in
which there, Is tho least to record.
Judged by this standard, Mr. McMillan's has been, a fortunate career.
All the landmarks of his past have
been connected with business changes
and developments. All, that Is, except one—his marriage, which took
place early last November, the fortunate lady being Miss Annie O. Buch-
bach, also of Treherne. But, apart
from this epoch-marking event, Mr.
McMillan has pursued the even tenor
" of his way, moving hither and thither,
gaining experience, until, when but
twenty years of age, he blossomed out
as a proprietor of his own paper.
He was born at Cedar Grove, near
Markham, Ont, in September, '78, and
when at the age of four was brought
to the West, his parents settling at
Melbourne, on the main line of the C.
P. R. Melbourne at that time had ambitions. It hoped to be, if not as big
as Winnipeg, at least the rival of
Portage la Prairie. Its dreams of civic
greatness never came within measurable distance of fulfilment. It never
passed the way-station phase of development. Today lt has an elevator
or two, a post office, and a watertank,
nnd It Is doubtful if ever it will havo
more. But ln the early eighties Melbourne, as said before, had ambitions.
ment. All accounts agree that Mr.
McMillan was wondorfully adept at
the craft of printing. No further testimony as to this is needed but the
fact that at the age of fifteen he was
made foreman of the News. After a
year of tills responsibility he left for
Winnipeg. He worked on the old
'Saturday Night," then published by
Mclntyre Bros., and from there went
co the news room of the Free Press.
In 1890 he went to Neepawa for s
summer, and then came back to
Carberry, working for a while on
the Carberry Express. In a little
while he went back to the Carberry News, the paper he had joined
after leaving school. It was then
owned by Mr. J. Ridington, and was
regarded as one of the foremost weeklies of Manitoba. Under Mr. McMillan's superintendence the News became, typographically, one of the best
papers published In the West. It was
while ho was foreman on the News
that Mr. McMillan began to qualify for
editorial work, at which he proved as
adent as he had in the mechanical de
partments of the newspaper business.
In September, 1899, he determined
to start for himself, and he selected
Treherne as the centre of his field of
operations. He was then but 20 year3
of age. These were the days of small
things. But the business had tn it possibilities, and these the boy editor
saw. The business grew. Increases
to the plant drove Mr. McMillan to a
bigger and bolter building. The Times
Is now housed in its own 2|/_-story
home, 20x37, the office being below
and the residence above. It has a good
range of body and display type, large
power presses (with engine to drive
them), and a live circulation of over
SOO. Moreover, lt is a power in the
land. It discusses things from a local
uolnt of view, takes keen Interest in
municipal topics, and never lets slip
an item of news. The Times is a live
paper. Mr. McMillan is no "scissor
and paste pot" editor, but one who
realizes that his opportunities and responsibilities, and does his honest
best to live up to them.
Mechanically, ho Is ma3ter of his
craft. He has the genuine instinct
as to what constitutes news, and five
vears of training has developed his
inherited gifts for expressing Ills
thoughts tersely and vigorously. He
is as yet young, and has proved hia
ability to achieve success on the business side of newspaper work. It
seems unreasonable, therefore, to ex-
oeet that Mr. McMillan will long continue to personally conduct the Tre
herne Times. The probabilities ar/>
Hint that bright little paper will be
it Rome-future time disposed of, anri
that Its founder will move Into a lsr
■rer field, there to duplicate the sue
-ess he has already made.

All classes of people sing Miss Crosby's secular and sacred songs. The
children in the public schools use
"There's Music ln the Air"; their parents know and love "Hazel Dell,"
"Rosalie, the Prairie Flower," and
others, which were immensely popular twenty-five years ago. But Fanny
Crosby is best known by her hymns,
such as '|Rescue the Perishing," "I am
Thine, O Lord," "Nearer the Cross,"
"Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior,"
"Blessed Assurance" and "Some Day
the Sliver Cord will Break." The first
of her hymns was written in 1864, and
since that date she has composed over
eight thousand, under various npms-
The gifted singer has been blind
since she was Bix years old, but
through marvellous difficulties has
overcome great obstacles. For twenty-
three years she was a pupil and teacher In the New York Institution for the
Blind. There she met and knew Henry
Clay, General Scolt, Jwtnes K. Polk,
Governor Seward, and ex-President
Cleveland, who hns been her firm
friend for fifty years. Miss Crosby
has known many of the greatest musical and literary men and women, Including all the famous composers of
sacred music. Recently she has written up the entire story of her life Into
an (Uilobiogruphy, which promised to
be widely road when It is published.
Miss Crosby has a wonderful memory. She composes an entire hymn
beforo having any of it written down
on paper. Once she wrote forty songs
before having any of them recorded;
and at the end she could recall every
one of them.
On March 2G the churches of America propose to build Miss Crosby a
monument of gratitude, which will be
more enduring than any marble shaft.
They propose to honor her life-work
while she still lives; and Is able to
appreciate the kind thought of those
who sing and love her songs. Hundreds of churches are preparing special programs of song to use for that
purpose; and a unique feature of the
plan is a large gift of honor as a testimonial to Miss Crosby's public service.
They thus hope to recognize in a fitting manner her eighty-fifth birthday.

much daring. Cautiously, therefore,
we went on our stomachs to make the
distance between the second and the
lirst barbed-wire entanglements. All
this distance was a surprise to us; It
was covered with many things evincive
of the skill and thoughtfulness of the
Russian engineers. It was about one
hundred meters in length. The ground
was sloping. It was filled with pitfalls
and mines Innumerable. For a second
theso mines made us forget the flrst
lino of wire fence toward which we
were making our way. First of all,
we had to dispose of the mines. We
had reason to suspect that they were
electric mines, and, in fact, the Russian engineers, with all their thought-
fulness, did not always take the
trouble to bury the Conductors. We
discovered nnd cut as many as four
conductors, which were just about the
size of my thumb. They were wrapped
in a rubber coating, and within the
rubber coating we found over twenty-
four small wires. I carried no scissors
about me. These electric wires were
a neat surprise to us. The severe
usage to which it had been put had
dulled the edge of my axe almost as
blunt as the edge of my palm. It cound
not cut the rubber-wrapped wires on
soft earth. Time was pressing. We
were In danger of being discovered before we could get at the first line of
barbed-wire fence, which was the last
goal of our efforts; moreover, we were
somewhat Impatient. So all of us fell
upon those electric wires.and with our
teeui we bit them off. I fear we may
have been somewhat excited. We did
some damage to our teeth by this work.

The United States Government Is
quite justified in asking the Russian
Government to send back to San Francisco three Russian officers who broke
their parole and went home. They
were part of the crew of a war vessel
which ls to He at San Francisco till
ai ter the close of the war. The breach
of parole ls not merely an insult to the
united States Government, but an injury to all prisoners of war, whose lot
is frequently ameliorated by being allowed freedom on giving their word
of honor not to escape.

That   man was   made   to be happy
That happiness is   attainublo on only

often the best way to help others is to
mind our own business;
Thnt useful effort means the proper
exercise of all of our faculties;
That we grow only thru life, and the
joys of meutal endeavor should be,
.specially, the solace of the old;
That where men alternnto work, play
and study in right proportion, the
organs of the mind nre the last to fail,
and death for such has no terrors;
That the possession of wealth can
never make a man exempt from nsefnl,
manual labor;
That if all worked a little, none
wonld be overworked;
Thnt if none were overfed, none
would bo underfed;
That tho rich and "educated" need
education quite ns mnch as the poor
and illiterate;
That tho presence of a serving class is
an indictment and a disgrace to onr
Thut the disadvantage of having a
serving clnss falls most upon those who

That people who are waited on by a
serving class cnn not have a just con

they waste both time aud substance,
both of which are lost forever, and cau

That the person who lives on the
labor of others, not giving himself iu

Feminine enthusiasm always bubbles
up year after year to a high pitch over
Spring and Summer millinery, so that
It ls never quite safe to qualify the
output of any season by comparing lt
with the one past and gone. But as
this Is a season of marked change in
styles and in the wearing of hats because of the novelty of shape and diminution in size, there is some ground
for congratulation as well as admiration. The hats ln general are Indeed
lovely to a degree. Brims ore more
than ever worn in the turned-up style,
and a series of shapes all having that
distinction. The flat brim hats have
their own variety by reason of the
bending of the brims ln and out, at all
angles, with a push forward over the
face, or a tilt up on the side. But ln
both of these opposite lines invariably
is the hat turned up in the back- The
third class—and for decided novelty
come the small' .turbans and polo
shapes. It Is needless to jjay that the
present sailor hat belongs' to the flat
brim order, but is'.retained ln an unbroken line In front, and at the sides,
A slight modification for novelty's sake
one milliner may introduce, as, for instance, turning' up the least bit of the
brim edge on the left side, and fastening there a cluster of small roses of
different colors, a crimson, a yellow
and a mauve. Some faces would Bug
gest the doing of just that, while others
cculd not wear a more becoming line
than the perfect circular sweep around
the head.

Fashionable toques have a pitch far

centre brim being rolled up* The toque
crowns are long ovals, or small and
round, or low *and broad with low
crowns, which also vary In depth in the

toques having a forward pitch was a
mass of red honey-suckle bloom ln
shaded gradations of color, the straw
of the crown showing through being
red to correspond. In the back there
was a foundation of red chiffon velvet,
over which honey-suckle foliage, with
its peculiar blue-green tint was massed

Information  for   Young
At the time of the Centennial in
Philadelphia, in 1876,- the Young
Women's Christian Association, then
siz years old, sent out circulars to warn
girls against coming to see the Exposition with the idea of getting work. Notwithstanding this there were hundreds
of girls stranded who exhausted their
small savings in three or fonr days and
fonnd no work; how to protect them
was a problem which is well remembered by those who were managers of tho
Association at that timo. Desiring to
meet those conditions the following
suggestions and information for young
women who may go to the Lewis and
Clark Oonte 11 iul Exposition at Portland
has beeu prepared:
1. See to it that you have money
enough for an emergency and for yonr
return home.
2. See to it that before leaving home
yon learn from a reliable source that
your ilistinatiou in Portland is a safe
3. See to it that you accept no directions from either nien or women on
trains, if unknown to you, and that yon
report to the conductor any advances
made. You must depend upon yourself and the railroad officials for information concerning trains. Any questions will be answered by the Traveller's
Aid Agents to be fonnd at the stations

Do the Next Thing.
From an old English parsonage
Down by the sea,
There came ln the twilight
A message to me;
Its quaint Saxon legend.
Deeply engraven,
Hath, as it seems to me,
Teaching for heaven;
And on through the hours
The quiet words ring
Like a low inspiration—
"Do the next Thing."
Many a questioning,
Many a fear,
Many a doubt
Hath Its guiding here;
Moment by moment
Let down from heaven
Time, opportunity
Guidance are given;
Fear not to-morrow,
Child of the King,
Trust it with God—
"Do the Next Thing."
Do lt Immediately,
Do lt with prayer.
Do it rellantly,
Casting all care;
Do it with reverence,
Tracing His hand
Who hath placed lt before thee
With earnest command;
•Stayed on omnipotence.
Safe 'neath His wing,
Leave all resultlngs—
"Do the Next Thing."
Looking to God—
Ever serener.
Working or suffering,
Be thy demeanor.
In the shade of His presence.
The rest of His calm.
The light of His countenance,
Live out thy psalm;
Strong In His faithfulness,
Praise Him and sing
Then as He beckons thee—
"Do the Next thing."
