OUR REPUTATION as Painless Dentists is shown by tho daily
increase in our practice.   We have gained a world-wide reputation with our discovery, which, when applied to the gums,
teeth cau be extracted absolutely painless.
Onr patients are so plt'ftBed with the results that they not only tell
their friends, but personally bring thom to our parlors that they
may receive the sume treatment. Iu thi. way, together with the
highest-class dentistry, done by our Specialists, onr practice has
gradually increased till we are second to uoue in practice.
By the use of our Double Adhesivo Suctiou Chamber we are able to
fit the most difficult casts. Where otber Dentists Fail We Meet
Wijli Success. If your teeth drop when you try to'cat with them,
or if you are afraid of them striking the pavement when you sneeze,
there is something wrong; they do not fit. Our Double Adhesive
Suction Chamber overcomes this difficulty and is Our OwnJInveu-

AUTHOR OP j,.%,
THE LEAVENWORTH CASE."
CHAPTER XVI.
Had   the   control    of    affairs been
mine at   thla    moment I am    quito
positive that I should have    found it
difficult to deny these two the short
Interview   which   they appeared   to
crave and which would have been to
them   such    an undeniable    comfort.
But a sternor spirit than mine   was
ln charge, and the district attorney,
into whose hands tha affair had now
fallen, was inexorable.     Miss Tuttlo
wbj treated with respect,  with kindness, even, but she was not allowed
any communication    with her brother-in-law beyond the   formal   "Good
afternoon" incident upon their separation; while he, scorning    to    con-
damn hie lips to any such trito commonplace, aaid nothing at all,    onlv
looked a haggard inquiry which called forth from her the most    oxalted
look    of   patience and    encouraging
lova lt has ever been my good   fortune to witness.     Durbin was standing near and saw this look as plainly as I did, but it did not    impose
on him, he said.   But what    in   tho
nature ol human woe could    impose
on him?   Durbin is a machine—a very
reliable    and    useful     machine,    no
doubt, yet when all is said, a simple
contrivance of coga and wheels; while
I—well, I hope that I am something
more than that; or why    was    I   a
changed man toward her    from    the
moment I saw the smile which marked this accused woman's good-by   to
Francis Jeffrey.   No longer believing
in her guilt.   I went about my busit
ness with tumult in brain and heart,
asking in my remorse for an opportunity to show her some small courtesy whereby to relieve the torture   I
felt at having helped the coroner In
the inquiries which had brought about
what looked to me now like a cruel
and unwarranted result.
That it should be given to Durbin
to hold such surveillance over her as
her doubtful position demanded added
greatly to my discomfort. But I was
enabled to keep my lips firmly shut
over any expression of secret jealousv
or displeasure; and this was fortunate, as otherwise I might have failed to obtain the chance of aiding
her later on, in other and deeper
matters.
Meanwhile, and before any of us
had left this room, one fact had become apparent. Mr. Jeffrey was not
going to volunteer any fresh statement in faco ot the   distinct   disap
proval of hi* alster-in-law. As his
«ye fell upon the district attorney,
who had lingered near, possibly in
the hope of getting something moro
from this depressed and almost insensible man, he made one remark,
but it waa an automatic one, calculated to produce but little effect on
tbe discriminating ears of this experienced official.
"I do not believe that my wife
was murdered." This was what he
said. "It was a wicked verdict. My
wife killed herself. Wasn't the pistol
found tied to her?"
ISlther from preoccupation or a
dazed condition of mind, he seemed
to forget that Miss Tuttle had owned to tying on this pistol; and that
nothing but her word went to prove
that this waa done before and not
after the shot had been delivered ln
the Moore house library. I thought
I understood him and was certain
that I Sympathized with his condition; but in the ears of those loss
amiably disposed toward him, his
statements had lost force and the
denial went for little.
Meanwhile a fact which all had
noted and commented on had recurred to my mind and caused me to
ask a brother officer who was walking out beside me what he thought
of Mr. Moore's absence from an inquiry presumably of such Importance
to all members of this family.
The fellow laughed and sold:
"Old Dave has lost none of his
peculiarities in walking into lift, fortune. This is his day at the cemetery. Didn't you know that? He will
let nothing on earth get in the way
of hi* pilgrimage to that spot on
the twenty-third of May, much less
so trivial an occurrence as an inquest over the remains of his nearest relative."
I felt my gorge rise; than a
thought struck me and I asked how
long the old gentleman kept up his
watch.
"From sunrise to sundown, the
boys say. I never saw him there
myself. My beat lies ln an opposite
direction."
I left him and started for Rock
Creek Cemetery. There were two
good hours yet before sundown and
I resolved to eome upon Uncle David
at hia post.
It took Just one hour and a quarter to got thsre by the most   direct
route    I could take.      Five minutes
more   to penetrate the grounds    to
whero a, superb vehicle stood,   drawn
by two of the finest horses I had seen
ln Washington for many a long day.
As I    was making my way    around
this equipage I came upon    a    plot
in a condition of upheaval preparatory to new sodding and the planting ot several choice shrubs.    In the
midst of the sand    thus exposed    a
■ingle head-stone rose.    On his knees
beside this simple monument    I saw
the figure of Uncle David, dressed ln
his finest elothes and showing in his
oddlv contorted face the satisfaction
of great prosperity, battling with tho
dissatisfaction ot knowing that    one
he had   so loved had   not lived    to
■hare his elevation.    He was rubbing
away the   mould    from the    namo
which, by his own confession,    was
tho only one to which his    memory
rlung in sympathy    or    endearment.
At his feet lay an open basket,     ln
which I detected tho remains of what
must have boon a rather sumptuous
cold repast.   To all  appearances    he
had foregone none of his ancient customs;  onlv those customs had taken
on elegance with his rise in fortune.
The    carriage and    the    horses, and
most of nil,  the Imperturbable driver, seemed to awaken some awe    in
tho boys.      They wero still in    evidence, but they hung back Bhecplshly
and eyed the basket of neglected food
ea me tne queerest feelings. Advancing quite unceremoniously upon the
watcher by the grave, I remarked
aloud:
"The setting sun will soon release
you, Mr. Moore. Are you going immediately into town?"
Ho paused in his rubbing, which
was beine done with a very tender
hand, and as if he really loved the
name he was endeavoring to bring
into plainer view. Scowling a little,
lie turned and met me point-blank
with a look which had a good deal
of inquiry in it.
"I am not usually interrupted
hero." he emphasized; "except by tho
boys." he added more mildly. "Thev
SOmeJtlmes approach too closely, but
I am used to the imps nnd scarcely
notice them. Ah! there are some of
my old friends now! Well, It is time
tney know that n change has taken
place in my fortunes. Hi. thero !
1 lands up and catch this, and thin,
and this!" he shouted. "Rut keep
quiet about it or next year you will
get pennies again."
And flinging quarters right and
left, he smiled in such a pompous.
Self-sulisfled way at Ihc hurrah and
scramble wliich ensued, that it was
Well worth mv journey there just to
sec this exhibition of combined vanity and good  humor.
"Now go!" he vociferated: and tho
urchins, black and white, flew away,
flinginc up their heels in delight and
shouting: "Bully for vou. Uncle
Pnvid! We'll come again next year,
not for twenty-fives hut lift les."
"I will moke it dollars if I onlv
live so long," he muttered. And
deigning now to remember the question I had put to him, he grandly
remarked:
"I am going straight into town.
Can I do anything for you'?"
"Nothing. I thought you might
like to know what awaits vou there.
Tho city is greatly stirred up. Tho
coroner's jury in tho .1 cffrcy-Moore
case has just brought in a verdict to
the clTcct that suicide has not been
proved. Naturally, this is equivalent
to one of murder."
"Ah!" he ejaculated, slightly taken
aback for one so Invariably impassive.
"And to whom is tho guilt of this
crime ascribed?" he presently ventured.
"There   was mention    of no name;
but Ihe opprobrium naturally falls on
Miss  Tuttle."
"Mies Tuttle?    Ah!"
.oo wnjn went on'm tne black interior ol;a house whoso exterior is
barely discernible at night across the
street?"
"Then you con not aid her?" I asked.
With a light bound he leaped into
the carriage. As he took his seat
he politely remarked:
"I should be glad to, since, though
not a Moore, she is near enough the
family to affect its honor. But not
having even seen her enter the house
I can not testify in any way in regard to her. Homo, Caesar, and drive
quickly. I do not thrive under these
evening damps."
And leaning back, with an inexpressible air of contentment with himself, his equipage and the prospect
of an Indefinite enjoyment of the
same; the last representative of the
great Moore family was quietly driven away.

"Since Mr. Jeffrey is proved to
have been too far away at the time
to have fired that shot, while she—"
"I am following you—"
"SVas in the very house—at the
door of tho library in fact—and heard
the pistol discharged, If she did not
discharge it herself—which some believe, notably the district attorney.
Vou should have been there, Mr.
Moore."
He looked surprised at this suggestion.
"I never am anywhere but here on
the twenty-third of May," ho declared.
"Miss    Tuttle needed    some adviser."
"Ah, probably."
"You would have been a good
one."
"And a welcome one, eh?"
I hardly thought he would have
been a welcome one, but I did not admit the fact. Nevertheless he seized
on the advantage he evidently
thought he hud gained nnd added,
mildly enough, or rather without anv
display of feeling:
"Miss Tuttle likes me even less
than Veronica did. I do not think
she would have accepted, certainly
she would not have desired, my presence in her counsels. Dut of ono
thing I wish her to be assured, her
and the world in general. Anv money
she may need at this—at this unhappy crisis in her life, sho will find
amply supplied. She has no claims
on me, but that makes little difference where the fainilv honor is concerned. Her mother's husband was
my brother—the girl shall have all
she needs.   I will write her so."
He was moving toward his carriage.
"Fine turnout?" ho interrogatively
remarked.
I assented with all the surprise—
with all the wonder even—which his
sublime egotism seemed to invite.
"It is tho best that Powney could
raise in the time I allotted him.
When I really finger the money, we
shall sec, wo shall see."
llis foot was on tho carriage-step.
He looked up at the west. Tho sun
was almost down but not quite.
"Have you any special business with
me?-' ho naked, lingering with what
I thought a surprising display of
conscientiousness till the last ray of
direct sunlight had disappeared.
I glanced up at tho coachman sitting on his box as rigid as stone.
"You may speak," said ho; "Cacnar
neither hears nor sees anything but
his horses when he drives me."
Tho block did not wink. He was
as completely at home on tho box
nnd as quiet and composed in his
servico as if ho had driven this man
for years.
"He understands his duty," finished the mastor, but with no outward
oppearonce of pride. "What have you
to say to me?"
I hesitated no longer.
"Miss Tuttlo is supposed to have
secretly entered the Moore house on
tho night you sunmioned un. She even
says sho did. I know that you havo
sworn to having seen no ono go into
that house; but notwithstanding this,
haven't you Borne means at your
disposal for proving to tho polico
and to tho world at large that sho
never fired that fatal .hot? Public
opinion is so cruel. Sho will bo
ruined whether Innocent or guilty,
unless lt con be very plainly shown
that sho did not enter tho library
prior to going thero with tho police."
"And how can you suppose mo    to
be in a position to prove that? Say
I that I had sat in iny front    window
' all that evening,  and watched    with
uninterrupted     assiduity    the    door
said to
ns if thev hoped he would forget    to    through which bo many are
take It away.   Meanwhile the clatter-    ^ava passed between sunset and raiding of   ehains against the   harness,   night-something which I did not do,
th. pawing of the harness    and   the ' as I have plainly stated    on oath-
low exclamations ot the driver cans-   how could vou have expected me  to
I wtis far from being gooa company that night. I knew this without being told. My mind was too
busy. 1 was too full of regrets and
plans, reasonings and counter reasonings. In my eyes Miss Tuttle had
suddenly becomo innocent, consequently a victim. But a victim to
what? To some exaggerated sense of
duty? Possibly; but to what duty?
That was the question, to answer
which offhand I would, in my present
excitement, havo been ready to sacrifice a month's pay.
For 1 was moved, not only by the
admiration and sympathy which all
men must feel for a beautiful woman
caught in such a deadlv snare of circumstantial evidence, but by the conviction that Durbin, whose present
sleek complacency was more offensive
to me than the sneering superiority
of a week ago, believed her to be a
guilty woman, and as such his rightful pi_ey. This alone would have influenced me to take the opposite
view; for we never ran along together
and in a cose where any division of
opinion was possible, always found
ourselves, consciously or unconsciously, on different sides. Yet I did not
really dislike Durbin, who is a very
fine fellow. I only hated his success
and the favor which rewarded it.
I know that I have Bomo very nasty
failings and I do not shrink from owning them. My desire is to represent
myself as I am, and I must admit
Uiat it was not entirely owing to disinterested motives that I now took
the secret stand I did in Miss Tuttle's
favor. To prove her Innocent whom
once I considered the cause of, il not
the guilty accessory to her sister's
murder, now became my dream by
night and my occupation by day.
Though I seemed fo have no sympathizer in this effort and though
the case against her was being
pushed very openly in the district attorney's office, yet I
clung to my convictions with an almost insensate persistence, inwardly
declaring her the victim of circumstances, and hoping against hope that
some clue would offer itself by means
of which I might yet prove her so.
But where was I to seek for this
clue?
Alas, no ready answer to this very
important query was forthcoming.
Ali possible evidence in this case
seemed to have been exhausted save
such aa Mr. Jeffrey and Miss Tuttlo
withheld. And so the monstrous accusation stood, and before it all
Washington—my humble self included
—stood in a daze of mingled doubt
and compassion, hunting for explanations which failed to appear and
seeking in vain for some guiltier
party, who evermore slipped from
under our hand.
Had Mr. Jeffrey's alibi been less
eomplcto he could not have stood up
against the suspicions which now
ran riot. But there was no possibility of shifting the actual crime back
to him after the testimony of so frank
and trustworthy a man as Tallman.
If the stopping of Mrs. Jeffrey's
watch fixed the moment of her death
as accurately as was supposed—and I
never heard the least doubt thrown
out in this regard—he could not by
any means of transit then known in
Washington have reached Waverley
Avonue in time to firo that shot. The
gates of the cemetery were closed at
sundown; sundown took place that
night at one minute past seven, and
the distance into town is considerable. His alibi could not be gainsaid. So his name failed to be publicly broached in connection with tho
shooting, though his influence over
Miss Tuttle could not be forgotten,
suggesting to some that she had acted as his hand ln the deed which
robbed him of an undesirable wife.
But this I would not believe. I preferred to accept the statement that
she had stopped short of the library
door in her suspicious visit there,
and that tho ribbon-tying, which
wont for so much, had been done at
home. That these facts, especially
the latter, called for more than common credulity, I was quite ready to
acknowledge; and had her feeling for
Francis Jeffrey shown less unselfishness, I should cortainly have Joined
my fellows ln rogarding these assertions as very lame attempts to explain what could onlv be explained
by a confossion of guilt.
So here was a tangle without a
frayed end to pull at. unless tho 1m-
porvious egotism of Uncle David af-
fordod one, which I doubted. For
how could any man witb a frightful
Becrot in hie breast show that unmixed delight in his new equipage
and suddenl" acquired position, which
had so plainly beamed from that
gentleman's calm eye and assured
bearing? When he met my scrutiny
in tho sacred precincts where the one
love of his heart lay buried, he did
so without a quiver or any sign of
inner disturbance. Hie tone to
Caesar as he drove eft had been the
tone of a man who can afford to
rpoak quietly because he is conscious
of being so undeniably the master;
and when his foot rose to the carriage step It was with the confidenco
of ono who had been kept out of his
rights for most of his natural life,
but who feels In his present enjoyment of them no apprehension of a
chango. His whole-Waring and conversation on that dav wern, as I am
quite ready to admit, an exhibition
of prodigious selfishness; but it was
nlso an exhibition of mental poise
Incompatible with a consciousness of
hnving acquired his fortune by any
means which laid hiin open to the
possibility of losing It. Or so I
judged.
Finding myself, with every new
consideration of the tantalizing _ib-
Ject, deeper and deeper In the quagmire of doubt nnd uncertainty, I
sought enlightenment by making a
memorandum of the special points
which must have Influenced the Jury
In their verdict, as witneiV
1.   Tiie relief shown by Mr. Jeffrey
a. nrining an apparent communKaflOn
from his wife hinting at suicide.
2. The possibility, disclosed by the
similarity between the sisters' handwriting, of this same communication
being a forgory substituted for the
one really written by Mrs. Jeffrey.
3. The fact that, previous to
Mr. Jeffrey's handling ot the book in
which this communication was said
to havo been hidden, it had been
seen in Miss Tuttle's hands.
4. That Immediately after this she
had passed to the drawer where Mr.
Jeffrey's pistol was kept.
5. That while this pistol had not
been observed in her hand, there was
as yet no evidence to prove that it
had been previously taken from the
drawer, save such as was afforded by
her own acknowledgment that she
had tied some unknown object, presumably the pistol to her
wrist before that sister
house.
6. That if this was so, the pistol
and the ribbon connecting it with
Mrs. Jeffrey's wrist had been handled
again before the former was discharged, and by lingers which had
first touched dust—of which there was
plenty in the old library.
7. That Miss Tuttle had admitted,
though not till after much prevarication and apparent subterfuge, that
she had extended her walk on that
fatal night not only as far as the
Moore house, but that sho had entered It, and penetrated as far as
the library door at the very moment
the shot wns fired within.
8. That in acknowledging this she
had emphatically denied having associated the firing ot this shot with
any idea of harm to her sister; yet
was known to have gone from this
houso in a condition of mind so
serious thnt she failed to recollect
the places sho visited or tho streets
she passed through till she found
herself again in her sister's house
face to face with an officer.
9. That her first greeting of this
officer was a shriek, betraying knowledge of his errand before he had
given utterance to a word.
10. That tho candles found in the
Moore house were similar to those
bought by Mr. Jeffrey and afterward
delivered at his kitchen door.
11.—That she was the only member
of  tho    household  besides the    cook
who was in the kitchen at the time,
and that it was Immediately after her
departure from the room    that
package containing the   candles
beon missed. ____________
12.—That opportunities of coming
to an understanding with Mr. Jeffrey after his wife's death had not
been lacking and it was not until
after such opportunities had occurred
that any serious Inquiry into this
matter had been begun by the police.
To which must be added, not in way
of proof but as an important factor
in tho case, that her manner, never
open, was such throughout her whole
public examination as to make It evident to all that only half of what
had occurred In tho Jeffreys' house
since tho wedding had been given out
by her or the man for whose release
from a. disappointing matrimonial entanglement she was supposed to have
worked; this, though the suspicion
hanging over them both called for the
utmost candor. .
Verily, a serious list; and opposed
to this I had as yet little to offer
but mv own belief In her Innocence
and tho fact, but little dwelt on and
yet not without its value, that the
money which had come to Mr. Jeffrey, and the homo which had been
given her, had both been forfeited by
Mrs. Jeffrey's death.
As I mused and mused over this
impVomptu synopsis, in my vain attempt to reach some fresh clue to a
proper understanding of tho inconsistencies in Miss Tuttle's conduct by
moans of my theory of her strong
but mistaken devotion to Mr. Jeffroy, a light suddenly broke upon mo
from an entirely unexpected quarter.
It was a faint one, but any glimmer
was welcome. Remembering a remark made by Mr. Jeffrey In his examination, that Mrs. Jeffrey had not
been tho same since crossing the fatal doorstep of the Moore house, I
asked myself if we had paid enough
attention to tho mental condition
and conduct of the bride prior to the
alarm which threw a pall of horror
over her marriage; and caught by
the idea, I sought for a fuller account of tho events of that day than
had hitherto been supplied by newspaper or witness

ACUTE INDIGESTION
A  Trouble That Causes  Untold Suffering  to  Thousands  Throughout
Canada.
__.—  —
Hunting up my friend, the reporter, I bogged him to tell mo where he
had obtained the facts from which
he made that leading article in The
.Star which had so startled all Washington on the evening of tho Jeffrey wedding. That they had come
from some eye-witness I had no
doubt, but who was the eye-witness?
Himself? No. Who then? At first
he declined to tell mo, but after a
fuller understanding ot my motives
he mentioned the name of a young
lady, who, while o frequent guest at
the most fashionable functions, was
not above supplying the papers with
such littlo items of current gossip as
came under her own observation.
How I managed to approach this
lady and by what means 1 succeeded
in gaining her confidence are details
quite unnecessary to this narrative.
Enough that I did obtain access to
hor and that sho talked quite frankly
to mo, and in so doing supplied mo
with a clue wliich ultimately opened
up to mo an entirely new field of inquiry. ....

"I suffered so much with acute indigestion that I frequently would walk
the  floor through   tbe   long   nights,"
said  Mrs.  Thomas  Vincent,  residing
at 98 St. Peter street, Quebec. "I had
been afflicted with the trouble,"   sho
continued,   "tor   upwards   ot   twenty
years, but it was only during the past
year that it assumed an acute form.
There were times when I was almost
distracted; everything I ate disagreed
with me and the pains in the region
of the stomach were almost unbearable.  When the attacks were at their
worst my head would grow dizzy and
would throb violently, and sometimes
I would experience severe attacks of
nausea.   As time went on I was almost worn out either through abstinence   from   food   or   the havoc   It
wrought when I did take it. I tried
many   much  lauded   dyspepsia cures,
but they did me no good.   In fact I
got nothing that helped me until my
nephew urged me   to   take   Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.   He had used them
himself with the greatest benefit, and
assured mo that they would help me.
After I had taken three or four boxes
of the pills there was some improvement,   and  I  continued  to  take  the
pills    regularly     for     about     three
months, and at the end of that time
I found myself cured.    I could eat a
hearty meal and eat It with relish;   I
slept soundly at night, my weight Increased, and my constitution generally  was   built  up.   I   think  Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills will  cure any case
of dyspepsia, lf they are given a fair
trial such as I gave them."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure case3
like Mrs. Vincent's simply because
they fill the veins with that rich, red
blood that enables every organ of the
body to do its work properly. That

Acording to a well-founded rumor,
tbe Dominion Government will during
the present session be urged to impose a custom duty on grades of fence
wire which are now on the free list.
That such a tax would prove an unjust burden to the farmers of Canada
there is no doubt. In the older parts
of the Dominion the old wooden
fences are being year by year replaced by wire structures, and in the
Great West, which is rapidly being
settled, practically all the fencing is
being done with wire in one or other
of its many forms of construction.
Were the kinds of wire most in use
for fence construction manufactured
in Canada; there might be some excuse for imposing an import tax, but
since there are practically no factories for making it in operation in
thi Dominion, whom could such a tax
benefit?
That the price of fencing material
would ba raised to practically the extent of the duty there can be no doubt.
This would mean that a duty of 25
or 30 per cent would Impose an extra
tax of $150 to $175 on the fencing required for an average farm. Nor
would the rural community suffer only
to the extent of an Increased expense
to those who have to fence, but a great
deal of farm improvement would be
delayed for many years, which would
operate strongly in keeping down the
value of land. Rather than Impose' a
tariff on Nos. 9, 12 and 13, smooth
galvanized wire as has been proposed,
lt would be a much saner policy to
remove the present duty of 20 per
cent, on Nob. 7 and 11. If this were
done, the revenue would not suffer,
for these grades are not extensively
imported, but lf they were free a
stronger and more satisfactory fence
could be obtained without enhancing
the cost _   _.,

Farm, Stock and Home. Tbe first ;
requisite of a dairy cow is large feeding powers. The more raw material
she can make use of, other things being equal, the better the cow. An animal's feeding capacity can be closely
ascertained by Its conformation, lt depending largely upon tbe size of tha
middle or barrel. Tbe flrst and most
Important point ln determining the
size of the barrel Is depth of body
through the middle; then come length
of body from shoulder to hook points
and Its breadth through the middle; A
broad muzzle and strong jaw are also
desirable.

I have one small cow that seems to

a day, while another one of her weight

a large Holsteln-Frleslan cow tbat
drinks over ten gallons a day and another quite as large that takes only
eight and a half gallons.
My experience ls that the yonnger
cows require more water and that
there ls a decrease each year ln the
water taken as the cow grows older.
In some cases even this does not hold
good. A cow out of sorts will drink
more or less am she Is chilly or feverish.
Indigestion, pasturage, changes ln ration, irregularity ln feeding and milking and the amount of exercise are factors that influence the drinking of the
milk cow. The character of the food
has much Influence. Dry foods call
for more water. Succulent food carries its own water largely. The cow
on pasture needs less and drinks less
water than the cow on dry feed. In
providing a supply of water for a herd
lt is well to furnish ths water and let
the cows measure their drinks for
themselves. Then they will get the
proper amount at the proper time.
Running water and individual drinking
vessels ln ths stalls will solve the problem of water and drinking perfectly.

ARTHUR 3.  BARTON
Editor and Proprietor of the  Boisse-
valn Hecoraer. __H_____I
While the majority of western editors are young—some oi tueui, luaoeu,
so youug tuac el-ewuue mail in tut
west iney wouiu oe junior cieras oi
. apprentices—there aro in jvianitooa
uuu tne Territories some who are oiu
both in years and experience. Tue
strenuous times ot the west make olu
men of young ones tast, but there are,
iu the newspaper business—wmcn is
proverbially a profession of and foi
young meu—some wno modify anu
temper its exuberant vigor by an infusion of moderation and caution.
Among the men who contribute these
desiraoie characteristics, without in
any way lessening the iniative and
vim' which are perhaps the most distinguishing features of western journalism, tew would be sooner accorded a place, by universal consent,
than Arthur S. Barton, editor of tue
Bolesevain Recorder.
Mr. Barton is forty-seven years ot
age, having been born In. 1857. By
birth he is an Englishman, his early
home being at Bromborough, Cheshire. He remained in England until he was twenty-three ye'ars of age,
uud in the interval before coming to
Canada he had a wide variety of experiences, all of which proved of value
in widening his horizon ami begetting
those qualities of adaptability the
possession of which is one of the essentials of success in the early days
of any country's development.
In 1880 Mr. Barton determined to
come to Canada, and located at Mea
ford, Ont. He remained there, en
gaging in farming for a year. Those
were the days In which the eyes ol
Eastern Canada were turned towards
the West. It was the era of the Canadian Hejira, when whole communities
ln Ontario trekked for the boundless
prairies of the West, where the sons
of the men Who had hewn out farms
from the primeval forest dreamed ot
farms mile-wide, and of the easy tillage ot the league-long furrow. The
westward boom strhck Meaford, anil
one of the first to listen to the spell
of the West was the young English
man who a year before had arrived
from across the Atlantic. He stayed
not at Winnipeg—then in the beginning of that world-famous Inflation of
land values, the collapse of which It
took ten years to recover—and right
through to the then little known district of Turtle Mountain. Here he
took up a farm, and shortly became
one" of the most prominent and respected residents of the district. Mr.
Barton proved himself a successful
farmer, and after twenty years of active agricultural life, was enabled, in
1901, to retire with a competence.
The editor of the Recorder, thus addB
1 another to the almost innumerable in
stances of men of Industry and ability
who, though with no previous agricultural experience, have achieved a success that in a few years bas placed
them in Independent circumstances,
wholly through the soil wealth and
fertility of the prairie fleldB of the
West
When, somo three years ago,   Mr.
.Barton retired from active farm work
'—though he still retains large farming interests—he began to look
around for an occupation to which he
could devote his time. The local Conservative paper, the Recorder, was tn
need of reorganization, and Mr. Barton decided to Interest himself in the
concern, and undertake the manage
ment of the paper, and see if he could
not duplicate, ln the realm of journalism, the success he had made in the
department of agriculture. Tho experiment was obviously one of some
risk. Mr. Barton was well on the
shady side of forty, and there is a
wise old English proverb about not
being able not to teach old dogs new
tricks. He was venturing Into a business success ln - whioh demanded
qualities of energy and training such
as but few men not bred up in tbe
business possess. No more conclusive proof of Mr. Barton's possession
of wide knowledge, shrewd Judgment,
and quick adaptability can be cited
than that, under his management, the
Recorder commenced Its career of
present growth and success.
Today the Bolssevaln Recorder is
recognized among newspaper men
as a bright, newsy local Bheet,
bearing on every page evidences
ot careful editorial work and attention to mechanical details. Its
local columns aro replete with Items
ot Interest, Its editorial opinions,
though frankly Conservative, are moderate and fair in tone, and its advertising patronage attests the esteem
with which the merchants of the vicinity regard lt as a means of disseminating their business announcements. Taken for all In all, the Boase-
-Xftln'Recorder is a good representative of Western journalism outside
the cities and big towns. That it
should be what lt ls, in view of the
previous lack of experience of its
proprietor ts, as said before, the best
The   Manufacturers    Life    Insurance
Co. During  1(104 Surpassed All
Its Previous Records.
The Manufacturers Life Insurance
Co., which publishes in another place
in this issue a report of Its progress
during 1904, certainly gives evidence
of a very healthy development. Two
or three points which emphasize this
fact, such as the smallness of its
Death Claims, the decrease of its expense ratios, and the increase in its
Surplus to Policy-holders, are such as
to recommend it strongly to probable
insurers.
The report this year makes much of
tho fact that this is the close of the
tenth year under the present management. Looking at the figures given
for the ten years we get some conception of the wonderful growth being
made in our country, when its financial corporations can advance at the
rate the Manufacturers Life has done.
An increase in ten years of $5,2(51,0!._i
In asstes is certainly no mean accomplishment. We heartily congratulate
the Manufacturers Life on such a
magnificent statement.

Ones upon a tlm* an honest flour
barrel was sent out to a farmer's
house, full of flour—the wise wife
looked the barrel over carefully and
then said to her husband:—
"I don't think this is the flour I
wanted—I don't sea 'Royal Household'

"No;    lt ain't 'Royal Household'."
said th* farmer,
—but lt ls just as good
—for the grocer said bo.
—"when I asked for 'Royal Household' he recommended this kind saying lt was just as good, but didn't cost
as much, so I said I'd try it"
"I wish you had done as I said,—I
don't think much of these 'Just as
good' grocers any way—I want the
flour that is purified by electricity for
I believe lt ls healthier. However,
since we have got this, I suppose we
might as wel1 use It." and she had
the barrel rolled Into the pantry and
opened up.
"Looks pretty good," she said to
herself.
"Madam," spoke up the Honest
Flour Barrel, "even flour experts can't
tell about flour just by looking at lt
Any flour, lf there ls no other flour
to compare with It looks white and
nice—but lf you bake lt Into bread
and then bake 'Royal Household' Into bread you can seo the difference.
"Now, the truth about this flour ls,
It ls made of cheap wheat, ln a cheap
mill by a cheap process. Flour that
ls not highly purified contains a lot
of stuff that Isn't flour and the process of taking all of it out ls expensive—that's why pure flour costs
more.
"Pure flour Is worth all lt costs and
more too. If you knew the whole
truth about flour, you'd send me back
and get 'Royal Household'."
And the Honest Flour Barrel having said Its say subsided, but after
the flrst baking, back went the barrel
to the grocer and "Royal Household"
Flour was sent ln its stead.

called "the ueitic fringe," that the
memory of the patron saint of England is not revered among Englishmen as is that of St. Andrew or St.
Patrick wherever Scotsmen or Irishmen foregather. A cynic might also
remark that the suitability of the
national beverages of Scotland and
Ireland for convivial gatherings may
be a partial explanation of the patriotic sentiment which the recurring
saints' days evoke, but it is an undoubted fact that the feeling for the
homeland is more actively expressed
by Celtic than by Anglo-Saxon people.
CARIBOU IN NEWFOUNDLAND.
Gee* Sport In tbe Island Colony Attracts
Vl.llore.
The caribou shooting season ln
Newfoundland is now in full swing
and excellent sport is being secured
by the hunters ranging the vast interior of the island, ln the post the
excessive license fee of $100 required
from alien sportsmen practically prevented any but the rich from engaging in it; but this season the license
system hoe been rearranged, and one
cnn secure a license for four weeks,
permitting the killing of two stags
and one doe for $30; one for six
weeks, permitting the killing ol
three stags and one doe for (SO; and
one for two months, permitting the
killing of live stags and two does for
(80. The result bas been a great Influx of sportsmen from England,
Canada and the United States.
The caribou are now making their
way from the far northern peninsula
where they spend the summer, to the
more wooded southern slopes, where
they spend the winter months, comparatively sheltered and free from the
sub-Arctic severity of the northern
region. The passengers on the trains
passing across the Island are daily
treated to the spectacle of herds of
these beautiful creatures in plain
sight of the car window. They are
usually ln herds ol fifty to a hundred, and are visible as for as the eye
can reach, thoir buff hides contrasting sharply wltb the reddish-green
autumnal tints of the surrounding
foliage. Old guides and trappers declare there ls no diminution ln their
numbers, for thousands of them will
pass within the eyes of an observer
stationed at a given point every day
while the migration continues. At
Howley Station, on the railroad line,
one day last week, a herd of fifty
passed within a few yards of the
place, and the agent from the cabin
doorway brought down the lordliest
stag in the group. At Rushy Pond,
a few miles away„ a herd of thirty
took to the lake to swim south, and
six were killed by as many onlookers, who pursued them in two canoes.
The Colonial Government has framed a series of regulations to which
alien sportsmen as well as local deer
hunters must conform, which will,
show very approximately how many
caribou are killed in a season and by
whom; and from comparison of these
returns during the next few years lt
will be seen whether more stringent
enactment will be necessary to preserve what hoe been called the last
decent hunting-ground ln North America.
Attitude* of Slain Souliere.
A graphic description ot the positions in which dead soldiers are
found on the field of battle is given
in a letter from Lieutenant-Colonel
Raschkin describing the fighting at
Motienling.
"Battlefields," he writes, "are very
different from the novelist's description. It iB curious how few dead men
lie prone. Many fall in fantastic and
inexplicable attitudes.
"1 saw one man who had been shot
through the chest crouching on his
knees, almost as if engaged in
prayer.
"Some men lie doubled up, clutching their knees, or even their feet,
and in tho trenches manv sit calmly
with bowed hem Is, as if busy eating.
"I have seen soldiers who fell backward, with their heads behind them,
as if they had tried to feci the spot
whero tho bullet had Issued.
"I havo oven seen men with their
heads between their lugs, and In our
trench a corporal loy dead, tightly
grasping the collar ot his tunic with
both hands."

of Qulnzy, which laid me up for two
weeks and cost a lot ot money.
Finding the lump again forming In
my throat, I bathed freely with MINARD'S LINIMENT, and saturating a
cloth with the liniment left it on all
night.
Next morning the swelling was gone
and I attribute the warding off of
an attack of Quinzy to the free use
of MINARD'S LINIMENT.

The creation of the new office of con-
eultlng barrister to the Council came as
a surprise to .he great majority of the
'cltlkene of Vancouver. This surprise
waa still further accentuated by the
-announcement that Mr. Joseph Martin
bad been given the appointment. The
position ls a lucrative one, carrying, a.
lt does, a fixed, salary of 12,500 a year,
"with, perquisites. These latter consist
of costs In litigation when the city Is
successful, end all go into Mr. Martin's
.'pocket, whereas, on the other hand,
"when the city ls unsuccessful the taxpayer!, will still retain the privilege of
paying the costs on both sides. Thus
litigation or no litigation, successful or
■unsuccessful, Mr. Martin's (2,500 a year,
like Tennyson's brook, goes on forever.
The President of the Liberal Assocla
tlon ls credited with engineering the
appointments of both Mr. Martin and
Mr. Peter Wylle through the Council
The interference of political organisations In deciding who shall or shall not
receive appointments on the staff of
the Municipal Council cannot be too
severely condemned.
"It behooves the taxpayers to consider
"■very carefully and dispassionately the
question of the proposed by-law for
$350,000. Last year that notorious $100,-
000 disappeared ln a manner that
Bcarcely left a trace of Its departure,
and what guarantee under present con-
dltlons has the taxpayer that the $350,-
000 would not follow In the footsteps of
Its predecessor? The wrangling lndulg
ed In at the weekly Council meetings
ila an all-sufficient Indication that the
members have not yet passed out of the
rudimentary stages of their education
in municipal government.
Alderman  Johnson  is  reported  ns
saying »n Conncil meeting Monday eveuiug : "All we've been having is meetings,   we   have    had  more   nieotiug>
-iu    three      mouths        auy       other

"Favorite Prescription" Is a specific for
the chronic ailment* peculiar to women.
It cnres them perfectly

No other medicine can
do for women so much as
"Favorite Prescription."
Do not therefore let any

"Favorlto Prescription"
contains no alcohol, opium, cocaine or other narcotic. It Ib strictly a
temperance medicino.
" I can truly say your medicine is a friend

Woman's
Realm.
In the all-Important matter of corsets
we change wonderfully little. Straight-
fronted makes are still worn, but there
are Indications of a smaller waist than
of yore. This Is arrived at by cuttlng-
ln the corset at the waist. It 1» a better shaped corset than that of last year,
for by giving the hips free play and
thus accentuating their size, the waist
ls made to appear smaller and rounder. The corset ls still cut very low
both back and front. In view of the
hot weather the thinnest silk batiste,
very lightly boned, Isja favorite fabric.
The virtues of kid and suede in the
shape of dress accessories are not yet
exhausted. Some very high collars
and cuffs are being worn with tailor-
made shirts, composed of kid of pale
shades studded with steel, while the kid
blouse ls a popular garment with motorists.
It is interesting to note the amazing
height to whleh the up-to-date collar
has been brought, whether It be of
linen, lace, jewels, jet, or velvet ribbon.
Where lt ls going to end one does not
know, and a depth of 3 1-2 Inches is
considered by no means out of the way.
But the best cut collars are not uncomfortable, for they are scooped out un-
der the chin and are set ln lower Mian
of yore. These highly manly collars
enhance the well dressed appearance
of a woman, and suit the coiffure of
the moment, which ls dressed right on
top of the head.
The coiffure of the moment Is really
very becoming, for it tends to make the
head look smaller, and the attempt at
neatness ls highly commendable. The
hair Is etlll waved, but not frlzaed—a
fact which the amateur will do well to
note. It is taken up rather tightly
above the ears, and ls only a little full
ln front, with two side curls. Tortoise-
shell pins of every kind are worn, and
very beautiful are some of the new
dark and amber tortolseshell slides and
pins inlaid with gold.
At the Concours Hipplque every season Is the Marquise de St. Sauveur,
who always looks like the slBter of her
two pretty daughters; Madame Le-
grand, when not racing, ls often to be
seen there too. On the opening day
everyone noticed Madame de la Torre's
very smart tailor costume, worn with
a dainty batiste blouse, cravat and collar, and a very becoming toque of black
straw with a pale blue paradise plume.
Prlncesse de Cantacugene looked neat
and Brnart In a black and white check
tailor gown, with a hat ln two shades
of red. Two pretty American sisters
were dressed alike, ln short velveteen
costumes of a discreet mouse-color
(gowns that have been much admired
at the skating club In the Palais de
Glace). The short coats are braided
with silver-grey soutache braid, and
very smartly cut away In front to display narrow white cloth gllets that
open ln turn over a pleated shirt front.
The hats worn with these frocks were
of red crln, trimmed with taffeta bows
and crimson feather pompons, ln the
Toreador fashion. A touch of crimson
was given in the belts of Viennese
leather with sliver mounts and the neat
crimson satin ci ivats.

The Market Question.
Editor "Tho Advocate":
The letter of your correspondent
"Paterfamilias" is full of plaiu common
sense arguiuout nud worthy of more
than passing consideration. As he trite
ly puts it, the first right of mau is the
right to live, nnd to do that the menus
whereby ho lives must be placed within
his reach. Withhold that aud you do
stroy tho whole fabric of the ccouomic
structure of social commercial nud political life as it at present exists.
As the father of eight children, four

I may, I vent ure to think, lay claim to

creuse iu Vancouver, ns during the past
six mouths, theu wages must go np iu a
corresponding ratio. I flud lhat sugar
hns risen in price 85%, flour 50% and
potatoes 100%. Cut for cut, quality for
quality, meat of alfdescriptious is mnch
dearer iu Vaucouver thau either iu
London, Eng., or New York, U. S. A,
Mr. Lawsou's story of "Fruziod
Fiunnce," which has caused such on
immense sensation in the Uuited
States, conld be applied with equal if
not greater force to our Lilliputian com
munity iu British Columbia. Ho teaches
thnt millions of peoplo are made to
suffer aud die that a few may become
multi-millionaires aud yet we nre asked
to believe that the majority govern,
Vaucouver wants a weekly Market
and has wnutod it for years but a few-
say no, and thus we are compelled to do
without it to enable the rich to become
richer and tho poor poorer, even to
destitution.
Onr lauds are lying idle while we are
forced to send millions abroad overy
year fur the commonest necessities of
the poorest household. Why should
the masses be compelled to eke out a
hole existence while tho combined few
livo iu luxurious ease, clothe themselves
in purple and fine lineu, und fare
sumptuously everyday?
