OUR REPUTATION as Painless Dentists is shown by tho daily
increase iu our practice.   We bave gained a world-wide ropu-
- tatiou with our discovery, which, when applied to the gums,
teeth oau be extracted absolutely painless.
Our patients ate so pleased with the results that they not only tell
their friends, bnt personally bring them to our parlors that they
may receive the same treatment. In this way, together with the
highest-class dentistry, done by our Specialists, our practice has
gradually increased till wa-sn. aeooad to none in practice.
By the use of our Doable Adhesive Suction Chamber we are able to
fit the most ditlicn'' casts. Where otber Dentists Fail We Meet
Wi?h Success, tt your teeth drop when yon try to eat with them,
or if you are afraid of them striking the pavement wheu yon sneeze,
there is something wrong; they do not fit. Our Double Adhesive
Suction Chamber overcomes this difficulty and is Our Owu.Iuveu-

New York Dental Parlors lor yoor work The Filigree Ball
As 1 did so 1 si'iied a slip of paper
lying on the floor at my feet. As it
had not been there ten minutes before there could be littlo doubt that
it had slipped from the book whoso
leaves I had been turning over so
rapidly. Hastening lo recover it, I
found it to bo a sheet of ordinary
note paper partly inscribed with
words in a neat and dist inctivo handwriting. This was a great find, for
the paper was fresh and tho handwriting ono which could be readily
identified. What 1 saw written there
was still moro romarknble. It had
the look of somo of the memoranda
I had myself drawn up during tho
most perplexing moments of this
strange case. I transcribe it just aa
it read:
"We havo hero two separnte accounts of how death comes to thoso
who breathe their last on tho ancestral hearthstone of tho Mooro house
"Certain facts are emphasized in
';  "Each victim was alone    when    he
"Each death was preceded by a
Scene of altercation or violent controversy botween the victim and the
alleged master of theso premises.
"In each case the master of the
house reaped soma benefit, real or
fancied, from tho other's death."
A curious sot of paragraphs. Some
one besides myself wus searching for
the very explanation I was at that
moment intent upon. I should have
considered it the work of our detectives if the additional lines I now
came upon could have been written
by any one but a Moore. Dut no one
of any other blood or associations
could have Indited tiie amazing words
which followed. The only excuse I
could find for them was the difficulty
which some men fc.l in formulating
their thoughts otherwise than with
pen and paper, ihey were so evidently
intended for the writer's eye and
understanding only,  as witness:
"Let mc recall tlio words mv father was uttering when my brother
rushed in upou us with that account
of ray misdeeds which changed all mv
prospects in life. It was mv twenty-
first birthdav and the old man hud
just informed me lhat as the eldest
son I might expect the house in
which we stood to be mine one day
and with it a secret which has been
handed down from father to son ever
since the Moores rose to eminence In
tho person of Colonel Alpheus. Then
ho noted that I was of age and iu>
modiatcly went on to say: 'This
means that you must be told certain
facts, without tho knowledge of
which you would be no true Moore.
These facts you must hereafter relato
to your son or whoever may be fortunate enough to inherit from you.
It is the legacy which goes with this
house and one which no inheritor as
yet has refused either to receive or to
transmit. Listen. You have often
noted the gold filigree ball which I
wear on. my watch-guard. This ball
is the talisman of our house, of this
house. If, in the course of your life
you find yourself in an extremity
from which no issue seems possible-
mind the strictness of the Injunction
—an extremity from which no issue
seems possible—(I have never been in
such a case; the gold filigree ball has
never been opened by me)—you will
take this trinket from its chain,
press upon this portion of it so, and
use what you will find inside, in connection with—' Alas! it was nt this
point John Judson came rushim. in
and those disclosures were made which
lost me my father's regard and gave
to the informer my rightful inheritance, together with the full secret of
which I only got a part. But that
part must help me now to the whole.
I havo seen the filigree ball ninny
times; Veronica has it now. But its
contents have nover been shown to
me. , If I knew what they wero and
why the master of this secret always
left the library—"
Here the memorandum ceased with
a long line straggling Irom the lottei
y as if the writer had been surprised
at his task.
The effect upon mc of theso remarkable words was to heighten my interest and raise mc into a state of renewed hope, if not of active expectation.
Another mind than my own had
been at work along the only groove
which held out any promise of success, and this mind, having at its
command certain family traditions,
had let me into a most valuable secret. Another mind! Whose minil?
That was a'quest ion easily answered.
But one man could have written these
words: the man who was thrust asidt
in early lifo.in favor of his younger
brother, and who now, bv tho sudden death of that brother's duuuhter,
had como again Into his Inheritance.
Uncle Davlil.'and ho only, wns tho
puzzled inquirer whose self-conimun-
ings I had just read. This fact raised a new problem for mo lo work
upon, and 1 could but ask when those
lines were written—before or after
Mr. Pfclffer's death—and whether he
had ever succeeded in solving the rid-
dlo he had suggested, or whether it
was still a baffling mystery to him.
I was so moved by the suggestion
conveyed in his final and half-finished
sentence, that I soon lost sight of
these lesser inquiries in the more important one connected with the filigree ball. For I had seen this filigree ball. I had even handed it.
From the description given I was
very certain that it had been one of
tho many trinkets I had observed lying on the dressing table when I
mads mv first hasty examination of
tho room on the evening of Mrs. Jeffrey's death. Why bad no premonition of its importance as a connecting link between theso tragedies and
their mysterious cause come to me
at the time when it was in reach of
my hand?" It was too Into now. It I
had been swept away with tho oilier !
loose objects littering the place, and
my opportunity for pursuing this j
very promising Investigation was
gone for the night. ■■, I
Yet it WSs with a deoided fcoling '•
of triumph that I finally locked the
door of this old mansion behind me. i
Certainly I had taken a step forward
since my entrance there, to which I
had but to add another of equal Importance to merit ths attention    of
tne Superintendent himself**"
The next morning I swallowed mv
pride and sought out Durbin. He had
superintended the removal of Mrs.
Jeffrey's effects from the southwest
chamber, and should know, il any
one, whero this filigree ball was now
to bo found. Doubtless it had been
returned with the other things to
Mr. Jeffrey, and yet, who knows?
Durbin is sly and some inkling of Its
valuo as a clue may havo entered
his mind. If so, it would be anywhere but in Mr. Jeffrey's or Miss
Tuttle's possession.
To tost my rival's knowledge of
and interest in this seemingly trivial
object, I stooped to what I can but
consider a pardonable subterfuge.
Greeting him in the offhand way least
likely to develop his suspicion, I told
him that I had u great idea in connection with the Jeffrey case and that
the duo to it lay in a little gold
ball which Mrs. Jeffrey sntuc.iitics
woro and upon which sho set great
store. .So fur 1 spoke tho truth. It
had been given her by some one—
not Mr. Jeffrey—and 1 believed,
though I did not know, that it contained a miniature portrait which it
might be to our advantage to see.
1 expected his lip to curl; but for a
wonder it maintained its noncommittal aspect, though I was sure that I
caught a slight; very slight, gleam of
curiosity lighting up for a moment
his calm,  gray eyo.
"You are on a fantastic trail," he
sneered, and that was ail-
But I had not expected more. I had
merely wished to learn what place,
if any, this filigree ball held in his
own suspicions, and in case he had
overlooked It, to jog his curiosity so
that he would in some way betray
its   whereabouts.
That, for all its seeking inconsequence, it did hold some place in his
mind was evident enough to those
who knew him; but thut it was with-
in reach or obtainable by any ordinary menus was not so plain. Indeed, 1 very' soon became convinced
that he, for one, hud no idea where
it was, or after the suggestive hint
I had given him he would never have
wasted a half-hour on me. What was
I to do then? Tell my story to tho
major and dopend on him to push
the matter to its proper conclusion?
"Not yet," whispered pride. "Durbin
thinks you a fool. Wait till you can
show your whole hand before calling
attention to your cards." But it was
hard not to betray my excitement and
to act tho fool they considered me
when tho boys twitted me about this
famous golden charm and asked what
great result had followed my night
in the Moore house. Dut remembering
that he who laughs last laughs best,
and that the cause of mirth was not
yet over between Durbin and myself,
I was able to preserve an impassive
exterior even when I camo under the
major's eye. I found myself amply
repaid when one of the boys who had
studiously avoided chaffing nie dropped the following words in my ear:
"I don't  know  what your  interest
is in the small gold charm you were
talking about,   but    you    have done
some good work in this case,    and I
don't mind telling you what  I know
about It.    That little gold    ball has
caused the polico much trouble. It is
on the list of effects found    in    the
room where the candle was seen burning: but when nil these petty belongings of Mrs.   Jeffrey's were   gathered
up and carried back to her husband,
this specinl one was not to be found
amongst them. It was lost in transit,
nor has it ever been seen since.   And
who do you think it was who called
attention to this loss and    demanded
that the article be found?      Not Mr.
Jeffrey, who seems to lay    little    or
no stress upon it, but the old    man
they call  Uncle David.    He who,    to
all appearance,  possessed no  interest
in his niece's personal property,  was
on  hand    tho    moment  these  things
wero carried into her husband's house,
with  the express intention,  it seems,
of inquiring for this gold ball, which
he declared to be a family heirloom.
As such it belonged to him    as   the
present holder    of the property,  and
to  him  only.    Attention   being    thus
called to it, it was found to bo missing,  and  as no one but    tho    police
seemed     to be to blamo for its  loss
the matter wns hushed up and would
have been  regarded as  too  insignificant for comment,  the trinket   being
Intrinsically  worthless,   if Mr.  Moore
had  not continued  to make    such   a
fuss about it.   This ball, ho declared,
was worth    us much lo a Moore as
all  the    rest of his property,  which
wus bosh,   you know;    und   the folly
of these assertions and  the.depth of
the    passions he  displayed  whenever
tho subject was mentioned have mails
some of ue  question  lf he Ih  the  innocent Inheritor he has tried to make
himself  out.     At  all events,   I know
for a certainty  that tho district   attorney holds his name in reserve,   if
the grand jury falls to bring   In   an
indictment  uguinst Miss Tuttle."
"The distrl t attorney is  wise,"   I
remarked,   und  fell a-thinklng.
Had this latent suspicion ngainst
Mr. Moore uny solid foundation? Was
he the guilty man? The moinorandum
I had come across In the book which
had been lately pulled down from tho
library shelves showed that, notwithstanding his testimony to tho
contrary, he had been in that house
close upon that fatal night, if not on
the very night itself, lt also showed
his extreme interest in the traditions
of tho family. Dut did it show anything more? Had he interrupted his
writing to finish his query in blood,
and had one of his motives for this
crime been the acquisition of this
filigree ball? lf so, why had ho left
it on the table upstairs? A candle
had been lit in that room—could It
have been by him in his search for
this object? It would be a groat relief to believe so. What wus the reason then that my mind refused so
emphatically to grasp this possibility and settle upon him as tho murderer of Mrs. Jeffrey? I can not tell. ,
1 huted tho man, and I likewiso
deeply distrusted hiin. But I could
not, oven after this revelation of his
duplicity, connect him in my thoughts
with absolute crime without a shock
to my intuitions. Happily, my
scruples were not shared by mv col
leagues, -x ney nad listed him. Here
I felt my shoulder touched, and a
newspaper was thrust into my hand
by the man who had just addressed
"Look down the lost and found
column," said he. "The third advertisement you will seo there camo
from the district attorney's office;
the next one was inserted by Mr.
Moore himself."
I followed his pointing finger and
read two descriptions of the filigreo
ball. The disproportion in the rewards offered was apparent. That
promised by Uncle David was calculated to rouse any man's cupidity
end should have resulted in tho
bauble's  immediate return.
"Ho got ahead of the police that
time." I laughed. "When did these
advertisements appear?"
"During tho days you were absent
from Washington."
"And how sure are you that he did
not get this jewel back?"
"Oh, wo nre sure. His continued
anxiety and pt ill active intercM.
prove this,, even .1 our surveillance
had been less perfect."
"And the police have been equally
"Aftor every effort." ,
"Who was the man who collected
and can led out those things from
the southwest chamber?"
He smiled
"You  sea r.im," said he.
"It was you?"
"And you are sure this small ball
was among <hem?"
"No. I only know that I havo
seen it somewhere, but that it wasn't among the articles I delivered to
Mr.  Jeffrey."
"How di-J you carry them?"
"In a hand-bag which I locked myself."
"Bofor* leaving the southwest
"Than it Is still in that room?"
"Find It." was his laconic reply.
Here most men would have stopped
but I have a bulldog's tenacity whon
ones I lay hold. That night I went
back to th* Moore houso and. taking
evary precaution against being surprised by tho sarcastic Durbin or
some of his many flatterers, I ransacked the southwest chamber on mv
own behalf for what certainly I had
little reason to expect to find there.
It seemed a hopeless cause from the
first, but I acted as if no one had
hunted for tl. is object before. Moving every article, I sought flrst on
tli» open floor and then in every possible crannv for the missing trinket.
But I failed to find it and was about
to acknowledge myself defeated when
my eye fell on the long brocaded curtains which I had drawn across the
sevoral windows to hide every gleam
of light from the street. They wero
almost freo from folds, but I shook
them well, especially the one nearest
tho table, and naturally with no effect.
"Folly," I muttered, yet did not
quite desist. For the great tassels
still hung at tho sides and—Well!
you may call it an impossible find
or say that if the bauble was there
it should have been discovered in the
first search for it! I will not say
no. I can only tell you what happened. When I took one of those
tassels in my hand, I thought, as it
twirled undor my touch, that I saw
somothing gleam in its faded old
threads which did not belong there.
Startled, and yet not thoroughly
realizing that I had come upon the
object of my search, I picked at this
thing and found it to be a morsel of
gold chain that had become entang-
lod in tt. When I had pulled it out,
it showed a- small golden ball at one
end, filigreed over and astonishingly
heavy for its size and apparent delicacy.
How it camo there—whether it rolled from the table, or was swept off
inadvertently by tho detective's
hand, and how it came to be caught
by this old tassel and held there in
spite of the many shakings it must
have received, did not concern me at
thie momentous instant. The talisman of this old family was found.
I had but to discover what it held
concealed to understand what had
baffled Mr. Moore and mado tho mystery he had endeavored to penetrate
so insolvable. Rejoining in my
triumph, but not wasting a moment
in self-congratulation, I bent over
the candle with my prize and sought
for the clasp or fastening which hsld
Its two ports together. I have a
knack at clasps and curious fastenings and was able at first touch
to spring this one open. And what
did I find inside? Something so different from what I expected, something so trivial and seemingly harm-
loss, that it Was not until I recalled
tho final words of Uncle David's memorandum that I realized its full import and the possibilities it suggested. In itself it was nothing but a
minute magnifying glass; but when
used in connection with—what? Ah,
that was just what Uncle David failed to say, possibly to know. Yet
this was now tho important point,
the culminating fact which might
lead to a full understanding of these
many tragedies. Could I hope to
guess what presented Itself to Mr.
Mooro as a difficult if not insolvable
problem? No; guessing would not
answer. I must trust to tho inspiration of the moment which suggested
with almost irresistible conviction:
The picture I That inane and seemingly worthless drawing over tho flre-
placo in The Colonel's Own, " whose
present* in so rich a room has always been a mystery!
Why this object should have suggested itself to mo and with such
instant conviction, I can not readily say. Whether, from my position
near th* bed, tho sight of this old
drawing recalled tho restless nights
of all who had lain in face of its
sickly sinilo, or whether some recollection of that secret law of the
Moores which forbade the removal of
any of their pictures from tha time-
worn walls, or a remembrance of tho
curiosity which this picture excited
in every one who looked nt It—
Francis Jeffrey among the number—
I no sooner asked myself what object
in this house might possibly yield
counsel or suggest aid when subjected to the influence of a magnifying glass, than the answer, which I
have already given, sprang instantly
into my mind:   Tho picture!
Grently excited, I sprang upon a
chair, took down tho drawing from
tho wall and laid It face up on tho
bed. Then I placed the glass over
ono of tho largo colls surrounding
the insipid faco, and was startled

A very interesting paradox is the one
concerning an ordinary wagon wheel,
which is solid nud rigid, yet when fastened on its axle on a wagon when the
wagon moves pnrt of the circumference
of the wheel which is in contact wltb
the ground is for an instant at absolute
rest, while the point directly perpendicular to lt ls flying along at a high
rate of speed. The two points horizontal with the center of the wheel are
traveling pretty fast, but only half as
fast as the topmost point, and as the
np going horizontal point increases in
speed the down going one slows up until it Is at rest for a moment when in
contact with the ground. Yet the wheel
is one solid piece and there are only
two points going at the same rate of
speed at the same time. Yet if the
wheel is taken off the axle and rolled
down an incline every point of the circumference moves at the same rate of
Ireland'* Sacred Oalt.
In years gone by Ireland had a sacred oak dedicated to St. Columban,
one of the peculiarities of the tree being that whoever carried a small bit
of the wood or bark in his mouth would
never meet with a violent death, it being especially efficacious In saving
Christian martyrs from the block. It
was known throughout the British
Isles as the holy oak of Kenmare.
After the lapse of many centuries this
Bacred oak was uprooted by a storm,
after which It was said to be guarded
by angels to keep heretics from gathering the wood for fuel. At last a wicked tanner "barked" one of its largest
limbs nnd tanned some leather, which

The nest which w* use is original
with us, says the poultry director ol
th* Maine Experiment Station. It is
very simple, inexpensive, easy to attend and certain in its action, lt is
a box-like structure without front
end or cover, 28 inches long, 13
inches wide and 16 inch deep, inside measure. A divis board with
a circular opening 7} i-.hes In diameter is placed across tho box, 13
Inches from the rear end and 16
Inches from the front end. The rear
section la the nest proper. Instead
of a closo made door at the entrance,
a light frame of 1 by 1 i inch stuff is
covered with wire netting of one-inch
mesh. The door is 10 inches wido by
10 Inches high, and doos not fill the
entire entrance, a space of two inches being left at the bottom, and on*
Inch at th* top, with a good marsin
at each side, to avoid friction. It is
hinged at the top and opens up into
the box. The hinges are placed on
the front of the door rather lhan ut
tho centre or rear, the better to secure complete closing action. The
trap consists of one piece of still
wire about three-sixteenths of an
Inch in diameter and 22 iuch.s long.
This piece of wire is shaped so that
a section of it, 11 inches long, rests
directly across tho circular opening
in the division board and is held in
place by two clamps, one on either
side of the circular opening. The
clamps fit loosely and th* slots are
long enough to allow the wire to
work up and down about three inches, without much friction. The next
section of the wire is eight inches
long and it is bent so that it is at
right angles with the eleven-Inch section. It passes along the side of the
box eleven inches above the floor,
back toward ■ the entrance door and
is fastened Btronbly to tho wall by
staples, but yet loosely enough so
that the wire can roll easily. The
remaining section of tho wire, which
is three inches long, is bent toward
the centre of the box, with an upward inclination, so that It supports
the door when it is open and rests
upon it. The end of the wire is
turned over smoothly, forming a
notch into which the door may slip
when opened.
As th* hen passes in under the open door and then through the circular opening to the nest, she raises
herself so that her keel may pass over the lower port of the division
board, and her back presses against
tho horizontal wire, as she passes lt,
and lifts it enough, so that the end
supporting th* door slides from under it, and tho door swings down
and passes a wire spring, near the
bottom of the box, at the entrance,
which locks It and prevents the hen
from escaping, and others from entering.
The double box with nest .In rear
is necessary, as when a hen has laid
and desires to leave tho nest, she
steps out into the front space and
remains there, generally trying to
escape, until sho is released. With
ono section only she would be very
likely to crush her egg by stepping
upon It and learn the pernicious habit of egg-eating.
The boxes are placed four In a
block, and slido in and out like
drawers and can be carried away for
cleansing when necessary. Four nests

A Series of Articles Describing their Lives, their Alms
and their Influence.
ing having been long since established.
To sum up, Mr. Wstland ls a type of a
successful Western .editor who has
"graduated from the ease." He has
grafted upon a thorough mechanical
knowledge of all pertaining to newspaper production, a level-headed understanding of the conditions and
needs of the West. He is personally
popular, and he understands his business. These things being so, his success is as natural as lt was deserved.
Editor  and   Proprietor  of  the   Free
Lance, Innlsfail.
Among Western Canadian newspaper men there is a small but increasingly important American contingent.
■-The great bulk of those engaged in
the business are of combo Canadians,
many of whom came into the West
with their parents in the years of the
great Ontario mfwyp between '79 and
'82, and who have grown up in the free
broad spirit of the West. A percentage, numerically small, but of considerable Influence, ls of British birth, and,
since the attention of Americans has
been directed to the agricultural wealth
and opportunities for investment offered in the Canadian West, and thousands of settlers from the land of the
Stars and Stripes have each year
flowed steadily northward, the number
of American newspaper men ln Western Canada has notably Increased. Today prosperous communities are to be
found ln Saskatchewan, Alberta and
AsBniboia, where even five years ago
the prairie grasses waved in the wind,
without a sign of human habitation or
occupation being in sight from horizon to horizon. This transformation,
one of the most remarkable and bene-
flcient in the whole history of human
effort is altogether founded and based
upon the intrinsic producing value of
the fertle soil of the Canadian North-
West. Their attention once directed
to its possibilities, none were so quick
to grasp the opportunity, and avail
themselves of the personal profit so to
be derived, than the people of the central States, who, by rail and by trek,
have streamed northward in peaceful
invasion ever increasing In volume.
But Western Canada has among its
Journalist some men, who, though by
birth Americans, have been so long
residents of Canada, and have so thoroughly Imbibed and assimilated Canadian conditions, that one needs to be
told that they are not among the native
born sons of the Dominion. Among
these is Mr. Geo. R. Westland, Editor
and Proprietor of the Innlsfail Free
Lance, recognized throughout Alberta
and the West as one of the most conscientious and workmanlike newspaper men of the Territorial press.
Air. Westland has, by birth and sympathy, peculiar qualifications for properly representing the three main
national elements constituting the pro-
dominating factors in Territorial life.
He ls British by parentage, American
by birth, and Canadian by residence
and education. What happier combination could posssibly be desired
for au editor in a district the population of which is almost wholly composed of uiese three peoples?
Mr. Westland has had a somewhat
Interesting career. In early childhood
his pnrents removed from Kentucky,
where he was born, to Ontario, and in
that district Mr. Westland spent the
greater portion of his life. He early
decided to devote himself to the printer's craft. Ho served for some years
on the Glencoe Transcript, where he
learned much of both the mechanical
and reportorial sides of newspaper
production. Later he went with the
London Advertiser, which put the finishing touches to his newspaper knowledge, and, in addition, gave him a
thorough groundng ln book and job
work. With such an equipment, it is
no wonder that Mr. Westland has the
respect of the fraternity for his all-
round competency as a practical printer.
The Improvement In Mr. Westland's
mechanical training was broken by
one event,—the Rebellon—In 1885,
when for the second time Rlel set
about organizing a movement of the
native population with a vlow to the
establishment of an insurrectionary
government, the men of Old Canada
sprang to arms to maintain law and
order ln the then remote portions of
the Dominion. Among the troops who
went to the front was the 7th Fusiliers,
k with headquarters at London, Ont,
, and with the regiment there came west
young Westland, who on this occasion
got his llrst view of life and conditions
in Western Canada. When order was
re-established, he went back east,
where he quietly remained until four
years ago. The movement to the Canadian West was thon beginning to obtain something like its present proportions, and Mr. Westland thought
he saw therein the hand of destiny
beckoning him to the land of opportunity. He spent Borne little time ln
Calgary, and, ln the last month of 1901
purchased the Innlsfail Free Lance.
Since he has assumed control, the
Free Lance has steadily improved. It
has many national advantages ln point
of location.' It is published in a town
that is being recognized as a great
dairying centre, and also Is located in
a district, the fertility of .which has
attracted thousands of settlers. This
haa meant a rapid increase in the
paper's circulation and the correspond

A country youth was recently apprenticed to a bootmaker living in an
adjoining county town. His flrst cub
tomer was a well-dressed young man,
who desired a pair of boots. The pair
he selected were priced 16s. 6d. He
explained that he had only 12s., and
enquired whether he could pay that.and
return next day with the remaining
cash. "Certainly," said the youtn,
"that will be all right," and then proceeded to wrap up the'boots. When
the customer had gone the youth related the matter to his employer. "Tut
man," said the employer, ln an irritated tone, "why did you do that?
You have allowed him to take those
boots, and you will never see him
again." "Ay, but I Bhall," replied the
youth, as he winked knowingly, I

A special from St. Louis says:—
After having been pronounced dead by
two physicians and a nurse, Mrs. Charles A. Sweet, wife of a provision merchant, has been restored by the infusion of a salt solution into her veins,
and Is now believed to be recovering
her health. Five weeks ago Mrs.
Sweet, suffering from gastritis, went
to Hot Springs, Ark., in the hope of
recovery. On the night of February
13 she seemed to be dying, and eventually her heart ceased beating and
respiration stopped. She was pronounced dead. A third physician, however, decided to try a salt Bolutlon Infusion and there followed signs of
animation. The operation was continued and Mrs. Sweet revived. She
was returned to her home in St. Louts
and apparently ls now recovering her
A New York special says:—The
body of a woman who had been dead
several hours, and a man unconscious
and dying were found in a cab which
was driven up to a Brooklyn police
station at a gallop. Tne man, who
was suffering from alcoholism, and
possibly from the effects of a drug,
may recover. The man said his name
was Thomas Deegan and that he lived
in Comoe street, one of the better
class residential sections of Brooklyn.
The dead woman he said was Miss
Mary Savage, 30 years old. Both Deegan and Miss Savage were well dressed. The cab, driven by a man who
said his name was David Good, dashed
up to the police station, and when the
policemen came out they found the
man and woman lying back in the
coach. It was seen at a glance that
the woman was dead, but the man
was still alive and physicians were
hurriedly summoned. He became
greatly excited when told that his companion was dead.

arrived here. One of the brothers said
13,000 rubles was taken from his Bale

"Time was not given us to say goodbye to our famlles," said Moses Wllentsky. "In other years all men who

that after being taken out of the town

Vancouver, B. C, May 20th, 1805.
:In _«_ffer-»ce to the proposed by-laws
there Is another phase of the question
■'"'wliieh may be discussed with profit to
-those whom ft mostly concerns. Por
"the sake of argument we will for the
'tionce .isMiiii- that the by-laws for
$467,000 do receive the endorsatlon of
-a majority  of the taxpayers, and the
' ;fact heraMud from Vancouver te Hall-
fax through the medium of the press as
•being the sign manual of Vancouver's
prosperity and expansion. What will be
-the result? Will not the news be avidly devoured in all the large centres of
-Jrapulatlon In the East, Including Winnipeg, hy all classes ef working men
whose ambitions will be thereby fired
'to go west to the Eldorado of high
-Wages and abundant employment,
where the harvest Is tall to ripeness
•and the laborers few?
-May not all this cause an enormsus
influx of work -seekers to overflew the
.abor market «f Vancouver, and as the
-law of supply and demand governs,
Nvlll not the worklngmen ot Vancouver then .find that In voting fer the
'by-laws they reckoned without their
host? Let those to whom these re
'marks apply ponder them well and
'think long ere they do that which once
<4on_ cannot be undone.
By voting the by-laws you plaoe sn
Immense power  in   tlie  hands  of the
-Mayer and Council, which w 11 bind you
hand and foot to you know not what.
By what moral right do the members
'•of any council claim the power to mortgage the total assets of the city at one
go and thus preclude their successors
'from olita'li-lng funds for a_nj.  extraordinary  expenditure  which   may   arise
*_od j-robably will, without having re
course  to an nbnorraally high rate of
direct  taxation,   which   means a  cor-
•*espom_l»B    depreciation   in   property
.'-'Make haste slowly" is a very good
"motto In municipal matters, for as the
"Quaker said, the horse lhat goes very
'fast 'does not so very long; and more
1 over alterat.ons do not always turn
. ant to be Improvements. The elaborate
'tftsciul-ulions on municipal finance to
.-Which we have been so liberally treated
1 may .turn out to be very much a leap
i 111 the dark.
'sVojtnim .up the whole matter, the tax
.payees af Vancouver are coolly asked
Uo hand oyer bolus bolus to the Mayor
...-nd Council, most of whom are but
1 serving thelr,.np.vicls£e In the administration of munl-48-J altars, the sum of
.almost half a million dollars, In addl-
itlon to the ordinary revenue of the
'■city, ...'deli latter ls estimated to pro
i-dyce this year $701,000, thus aggregating the graud  total  qf I1J68 000—one
.uatitton one hundred and sixty eight
; thousand dollars- If this enormous
i num of money Is placed in the bands
1 of. the Mayor and Council what w:il
1 they.do with It? Let every taxpayer
. satisfy himself thoroughly on this
jpolnt ond beyond the shadow of a
1 doubt, otherwise he may live<p rue lt.
A piquant attractiveness lies in this
French-like street costume, which has,
for Instance, a black and white light
wool skirt, the white predominating,
while the jacket bodice ls In plain black
lustrous taffeta Several such costumes
figure in the wardrobes of smart women, so greatly were they ln favor from
the start. They are youthful, becoming
and fit In for so many occasions where
a simple tailor-made would be a little
too severe. The skirts are treated simply—a pressed tuck or two ln some; ln
others, merely hemmed edge. As the
skirt is a "trotteur," and meant to walk
in, there ls no need of trimming elaborately at all. The taffeta Jacket receives
the greatest care, however. TlHs latest
one has Its silk fullnesB drawn over a
well-fitted lining, but so Indescribably
done as not to lose In any sense Its true
jacket lines. A postillion Is gathered on
en suite In the back, and the belt ls of
black silk also, and draped, so that the
whole Is In perfect harmony. Gold and
turquoise buttons of. great beauty, ln
two rows, ornament the, fronts, with
blue silk facings barely hinted at. A
high white lace effect appears In the
oval opening at the top of the fronts,
Where the Jacket ls fastened. The
sleeves are ln reality long ones, but as
the upper part Is In solid black silk and
the lower portion in turquoise blue silk,
tbe elbow-sleeve effect is preserved. To
understand the silk upper sleeve, Imagine a cap formation at the shoulder
line, altogether of finely hand-tucked
black taffeta and held in shape, so as
to give lt a modish width, by a feather-
bone ring, while below are puffings of
the same silk. Over the blue silk lower
sleeve three draped bands of black taffeta have a charming effect in bracelet*
with a bow Mulsh at tbe elbow line. A
tab of plaited white lace falls out from
each of these taffeta rings In a Jaunty
way. The same lace, with lawn additions, forms a very pretty collarband to
correspond. Nothing could be more chic
than this coat and skirt, everyone admits.
"The Advocate" wishes any careless?

Iflefore starting 011 a shopping tour,
I'.iok over tbo advertisements in the
Mauve and lavender gauze, so greatly
In vogue, represents the modish choice
In ceremonious dress. One example
from a leading gown-maker shows the
long full skirt so all-prevalllng with a
bottom trimming only. That conslstB
of two liberty satin bands, each ln folds
with narrow velvet folds of the same
Shade placed Inside of the satin ones,
while as a dividing line between ls a
■single row of shirred satin. For the
bodice, a*bove Us low gauze portion,
started above the belt and ending halfway across the bust, rises a high-neck
gulmpe of exquisitely lovely white
Chantllly lace, shaped Into long oval
medallions upon a Chantllly net foun
dation. This Is done In so perfect a
way, however, as to look as lf the lace
had been made to fit the shoulders In
one wliole piece. The effect Is entirely
different from the UBual applications.
In the middle front an oval is cut out
to form the much-admired loop figure,
and ls trimmed with one fold of velvet;
another of satin. This ls as smart as lt
ls original. In the same harmony of
gauze and lace are the elbow sleeves,
and extremely conservative In their top
fullness. Small elbow bows ln threes
are of velvet, quite ln accord with the
draped satin belt—a charming costume.
That the Rajah silks in cream-white
are well suited to forenoon wear, as well
as afternoon dress ln the country, will
become more and more emphasised as
the season advances. Short and long
coat suits, trimmed with white silk
Hercules braid, have a trig tailor-made
fitness about them that most women
like. They also give a wide margin to
hints of every color, and to parasols as
well. For afternoon wear, when dress
is to be rather informal, the skirts are
not as short as the forenoon tailor-mad":
styles. Then are worn bolero coats, or
round bodices, with elbow sleeves If the
best style is given to them. Ir'sh lace,
a Jour lawn embroidery, or a finish of
Etitchlngs, with touches of color in the
way of some galoon or embroidery
intets, are the usual effects striven for.
Walking skirts, In all esses are smartest left  1u1trlm11u.1l.    Not only Is this
sort of skirt much ln vogue, but lt i-OKS
partlcularly well In Rajah silk bir.iuse
of Its compact surface. India and
Chinese silks In the same cream-whiteness are greatly In favor also, looking
most attractive If profusely trimmed
with narrjjw Valenciennes laces, which
are frilled on the bottom of skirt
flounces. These skirts are longer, torch
ing the ground, and very full. Eight to
ten rows of double shlrrlngs drawn into a deep yoke keep the figure line quite
as lt should be. Bodices are round and
full, Or draped with surplice effects
back and front. The elbow sleeves show
off the same narrow lace3 and the
double shlrrlngs In cross-sections, while
all-over Valenciennes Is used for the
high chemisettes and tha close-fitting
transparent attached sleeve, which ends
half-way down the lower arm and is
rather closely fitted. Small Hows, or
silk ends fringed, trim the outside line
of lace sleeves.
Exquisite are the delicately figured
tissues combined with bolder figured
moussellnes, In shadow designs of flowers and foliage held in subdued colors.
Crepes are also made up with these figured moussellnes, used as crossbands,
as panels, and sometimes In long, slender ovals, and entered Into flounces, the
crepes being pale but In one solid color.
Fine tracery lace motives ln long narrow foliage shapes are made to further
beautify these combinations, both on
bodice and skirt. Both high and low-
neck gowns are met ln creations of this
character, always with a third Insetting
as well as trimming of fine white laces
upon sleeves and upon chemisette or

Separate the yolks from the whites of
eight eggs; beat the former for a few
moments to mix them, and then add by
degrees six ounces of powdered sugar
and place the basin containing the
yolks ln a saucepan of boiling water,
and stir them on the stove until they
thicken sufficiently to coat the spoon.
Remove the basin and whisk the custard until lt Is cold, then add two
tablespoonfuls of maraschino, half a
p'nt of strawberry pulp (prepared by
1 ass Ing some bottled strawberries
through a fine sieve), a tablespoonful of
the syrup ln which the fruit was preserved, three-quarters of a pint of
whlpper cream, and sufficient carmine
to make the mixture a pretty pink.
Have the whites of the eggs 1n readiness, whisked to a very stiff froth, Incorporate them with the souffle mixture, and fill a mould (which has been
previously prepared with a band of paper round the top) with lt, and freeze
at once in a charged Ice-cave for about
three hours. Remove the paper band
before serving the souffle, and decorate
the top and crystallised rose-leaves and
chopped pistachio nuts.
Prepare some little diamond-shaped
cases of cheese pastry (which should be
nicely glazed), making them hollow ln
the middle, and on taking them from
the oven fill them with the following
mixture and serve as expeditiously as
pcsslble. Make sufficient luxette paste
hot in a small saucepan containing
some butter, add a few drops of chilli
vinegar to lt and a sprinkle of grated
Parmesan cheese, and, after filling the
cases with the mixture, smooth the top
of it and garnish lt with some tiny
shamrock-shaped pieces of pickled
