and tho two great drawers which I
found standing half open at Its back;
but In the middle of the floor luy an
overturned candolabrum similar to
tlie one below, but with its prisms
scattered and its ono candlo crushed
and battered out of all shape on the
blackened boards. lf upset while
ftllght, tho foot which had stamped
upon it in a wild endeavor to put
out tho flames had been a frenzied
one. Now, by whom hud this frenzy
been shown, and whon? Within tho
hour?i I could detect no smell ol
smoke. At some former time, then?
■say on the day of the bridal?
. Glancing from the broken candle at
- my. feet  to  the ono  giving  its  lust
sputter in tho tumbler on tho dressing, tabic, I owned myself perplexed.
Surely,     no    ordinary  explanation
fitted these extraordinary and seemingly contradictory circumstances.
CHAPTER IV.
I am in some ways hypersensitive.
Among my other weaknesses I have
a wholesome dread of ridicule, and
this is probably why I failed to press
my-theory on tho captain when ho
appeared, and oven forbore to mention the various small matters which
had so attracted my attention. If
he and the experienced men who came
with him saw suicide and nothing
but suicide in this lnmontable shooting of a bride oi two weeks, then it
was not for me to suggest n deeper
crime, especially as ono of the latter
eyed mo with opon scorn when I
proposed to accompany thom upstairs into tho room where tlio light
had been seen burning. No, I would
keep my discoveries to myself, or, at
least, forbear to mention them till I
found tho captain alone, asking
nothing at this juncture but permission to remain In the house till Mr.
Jeffrey arrived.
I had been told that an officer had
gone for this gentleman, and when
1 heard tho sound of wheels in front
I mado a rush for the door, in my
anxiety to catch a glimpse of him.
But it was a woman who alighted.
As this woman was in a state of
great agitation, ono of tho men hastened down to offer his arm. As she
took it, I asked Hibbard, who had
suddenly reappeared upon the scene,
who she was.
He said that, sho was probably tha
sister of the woman who lay inside. Upon which I remembered that
this lady, under the name of Miss
'Puttie—she was but half-sister to
Miss Mooro—had been repeatedly
mentioned by tho reporters, in the
accounts of the wedding before mentioned as a person of superior attainments and magnificent  beauty.
This did not take from my interest, and flinging decorum to the
winds, I approached as near us possible to the threshold which she must
soon cross. As I did so I wus astonished to hear the strains of Undo
David's organ still pealing from thu
opposite side of the way. This at a
moment so serious and while matters
of apparent consequence were taking
place ln the house tu wliich be had
himself directed the attention of the
police, struck me us carrying stoicism to tho extreme. Not very favorably impressed by this display of
open if not insulting indifference on
tho part of the sole remaining Moore
—an indifference wbicli did not appear quite natural even In a mun
of his morbid eccentricity—I resolved
to know more of this old man und,
above all, to make myself fully acquainted with the exact relations
which had existed between him and
his unhappy niece.
Meanwhile Miss Tuttle had stepped
within the circle of light cast by
our lanterns.
I have never soon a finer woman,
nor one whose features displayed a
more heartrending emotion. This
called for respect, and I, for one,
endeavored to show It by withdrawing into tho background. But I
soon stepped forward again. My de-
alro to understand her was too
great, the Impression mado by her
boaring too complex, to bo passed
over lightly by one on tho lookout
for a key to the remarkable tragedy
before us.
Mcanwhllo her lips had opened
with the cry:
"My sisterl Whero Is my sister?"
The captain made a hurried movement townrd tho rear and then with
the laudable Intention, doubtless, ol
preparing hor for tho ghastly sight
which awaited her, returned und
opened a way for her into tlio drawing-room. But she wns not to bo
turned aside from her course. Passing him by, sho mndo directly for
tho library which sho entered with a
bound. Struck by her dniing, we
all crowded up behind her, and curious brutes that wo were, grouped
ourselves iu a seinicirclo about tho
doorway as sho faltered toward her
Bister's outstretched form and foil
on her knees beside it. Her involuntary shriek and the fierce recoil
sho made as hor eyes fell on tho
long white ribbon trailing over tho
floor from her sistor's wrist, struck
mo as voicing the utmost horror of
which tho human soul is capable.
It was as though her very soul was
piorced. Something in the fact itself, something In the appearance of
this snowy ribbon tied to tho scarco
whiter wrist, scorned to pluck at tho
very root of her being; and when her
glance, in traveling ils length, lighted on tho death-dealing weapon at
its end, Bho cringed in such apparent
anguish thnt we looked to see her
fall in a swoon or break out into
delirium. Wo were correspondingly
startled when she suddenly burst
forth with this word of stern command:
"Untie that knot! Why do you
leave that dreadful thing fust to
her? Untie it, I say, it is killing
me; I can not bear tho sight." And
-I-...I.I treniblir.fr Bhe passed to    ahucl-
convulsively.
The captain, with much consideration, drew buck the hand ho had
impulsively stretched toward the ribbon.
"No, no," lin protested; 'wo can
not do thut; wo can do nothing till
tho coroner comes, it Is necessary
that he should see ber just as she
wus found. Besides, Mr. Jeffrey has
a. right to the snino privilege. We
expect him any moment"
The boautlful head of the woman
before us shook Involuntarily, but
ber lips mado no protest. I doubt
if she possessed the power of speech
at that moment. A change, subtile,
but quito perceptible, had taken place
In her emotions at mention of bet-
sister's husband, und, though she
exerted lierself to remain calm, the
effort seemed too much for lu-r
Strength. Anxious to hide this evidence of weakness, she ruse impetuously; und then we saw how lull she
was, how the long lines of her clonk
became her, and what a glorious
ct'ealiti-e she was altogether.
"It will kill him," she groaned    In
0 deep inward voice. Thin, with a
certain forced haste and in a tone ol
surprise which lo iny ear had not
auite a natural ring, she called aloud
on her who could no longer either
listen or answer:
"Oh, Veronica, Veronica! What
cause had you for death? And why
do we lind you lying here in a spot
you so feared and detested?"
"Don't ye>u know?" insinuated the
captain, With a mild persuasiveness,
such as he was seldom heard to use.
"Bo you liieun that you cau not account foe . your Bister's violent end,
you, who have lived with her—or   so
1 have boon lold—ever since her marriage with Mi-,  Jeffrey?"
"Yes."
Keen and clear the word rang out,
fierce in its keenness and almost too
clear to be In keeping with the half-
choked tones with which she added:
"1 know that she was not happy,
that she novel- had been happy since
the shadow which this room suggests fell upon her marriage. But
how could I so much as dream that
her dread of tbo past or her fear of
the future would drive her to suicido,
and in this place of all places! Had
1 done so—had I imagined in the least
degree that sho was affected to this
extent—do you think that I would
have left her for one instant alone?
None of us knew that she contemplated death. She had no appearance of it; she laughed when I—"
What had she been about to say?
The captain Boomed to wonder, and
aflor waiting in vain for the completion of hor sentence, he eiuielly
suggested:
"Vou have not finished what you
had to say,  i\]i::s 'l'utile."
Sho started und seemed to come
from some remote region of thought
inlo wliich she hud wandered. "I
don't know—I forget," she stammered, with a heart-broken sigh. "I'-uor
Vorontcal Wretched Veronica] How
shall I ever lull hiin! How, how,
call we ever prepare him!"
Tho captain took advantage of
this reference! to Mr. Jeffrey lo ask
where that gentleman-, was. The
young lady eliel not seem eager to reply, l.iit when pressed, answered,
though somewhat mechanically, that
it was impossible for her lo say; Mr.
Jeffrey had many frionds with any
one of whom he might bo enjoying a
social evening.
"But it is far pnst midnight now,"
remarked tho captain. Is ho in the
habit of remaining out late?"
".Sometimes," she faintly admitted. "Two or three times since his
marriage he has been out till one."
Were there other causes for the
young brido's evident disappointment
and misery bosldes the one intimated? There certainly was some excuse
for thinking so.
Possibly some ono of us may have
shown his doubts in this regard, for
tho womun before us suddenly broko
forth with this vehement assertion :
"Mr Jeffrey was a loving husband
to my sister. A very loving husband," she emphasized. Then, growing desperately pale, she added, "I
have never known a better man,"
and stopped.
Somo hidden anguish in this cry,
some self-consciousness in this pause,
suggested to mo a possibility which
1 was glad to see ignored by the
captain iu  llis next question.
"When did you see your sister
last?" he nsked. "Were you at home
when she left her husband's house?"
"Alas!" she- murmured, Then seeing thul a moro direct answer was
expected of her, sho added with as
little appearance of effort as possible: "I was at homo and heard
her go out. Jtut I had no ide'a that
it wus fur any purpose other than
to join some social gathering."
"Dressed this way?"
Tho captain pointed to the door
and her e. "S followed. Certainly Mrs.
Jeffrey was not appareled for on
ovening company, As Miss Tuttle realized tho trap into which sho hud
been bet ray.d, her Words rushed
forth and  trlppetl each other up.
"I did not notice. She gftcn wore
black—it became her. My s(Nter was
ee-e-elilric."
Worse, Worse than useless. Some
slips cnn not be explained nway.
Miss Tuttle seined to realize that
this wns one of them, for she paused
abruptly, with Ihe words half finished on hor tongue. Y"t her utti-
tudo commanded res' ■- t, und I for
one was ready   to ni  .rd .1  io her.
Certainly such n w unati was not
to bo seen every day, und if her replies lucked candor, tin re was a no-
blllty in her presence which guve Iho
lio lo any doubt, At least, tbat was
Iho effect she produced on nte. Whether or not her Interrogator shared
my feeling 1 could not so readily de-
torinine, for his attention us well as
mine wus suddenly diverted by the
cry which now escaped her lips,
"Her watch! Where is her watch?
It is gone! I saw it on ber breast
and it's gone. lt hung just—just
where—"
"WaltI" cried one of the men who
hatl been peering about tbo floor.
"Is this it?"
He held aloft a smull object blazing Willi Jewels.
"Yes," she gasped, trying to   tako
it.
.'Ju'. thu officer nave lt tu the   cas-
"II must have slipped from her as
she fell," remarked tho latter, after
a cursory examination of tho glittering trinket. "Tho pin by which sho
attached It to her dress must have
boon Insecurely fastened." Then
quickly and with a sharp look at
Miss Tuttle: "Do you know if thla
was considered an accurate time*
pieco?"
"Yos.    Why do you ask? Is It—"
"Look!" Ifo held it up with tho
faco toward us. The hands stood at
thirteen minutes past seven. "The
hour and the moment when It struck
the floor," ha declared. "And consequently tho hour and the moment
when Mrs. Jeffrey fell," finished Dur-
bin.
Miss Tuttle said nothing, only
gaspod.
"Valuable evidonce," quoth the
captain, putting tho watch in his
pocket. Then, with a kind look at
hor, called forth by the sight of
hor misery: "Does this hour agree
with the time of hor leaving the
house?"
"I can not say. I think so. It
was some timo beforo or after soven.
I don't remember tho exact minute."
"It would take fifteen for her to
walk hero.   Did she walk?"
"I do not know. I didn't seo hir
leave. My room la at ths back of
tho house."
"You can say lf she left alone or
In tho company of hor husband?"
"Mr. Jeffrey waa not with her?"
"Was Mr. Joffrey in the house?"
"He was not."
This last negative was faintly
spoken.
The captain noticed this and ventured upon interrogating her further.
"How long had he been gone?"
Her lips parted; she was deeply
agitated; but when she spoke it was
coldly and with studied precision.
"Mr. Jeffrey was not at home tonight at all. He has not been in all
day."
"Not at homo? Bid his wife know
that he was going to dlno out?"
"She said nothing about it."
The captain cut short his questions
and in another moment I understood
why. A gentleman was standing in
the doorway, whose face once seen,
was enough to stop the words on
any man's lips. Miss Tuttle saw
this gentleman almost as quickly as
we did and Bank with an involuntary
moan to.her knees.
It was Francis Jeffrey come to
look upon his dead bride.
I have been present at many tragic scenes and have beheld men under
almost overy aspect of grief, terror
and remorse; but thero was something in tho face of this man at this
dreadful moment that was quite new
to mo, and, as I judge, equally new
to the othor hardy officials about
me. To be sure he was a gentleman
nnd a very high-bred ono at that;
and it is but seldom wo havo to do
with any of his ilk,
Breathlessly wo awaited his first
words.
Not that ho showed frenzy or made
eny display of tho grief or surpriso
natural to the occasion. On tho
contrary, he was the quietest person
present, and among all the emotions his white face mirrored I saw
no signs of what might be called
sorrow. Yot his appearance was one
to wring the heart and rouse tho
most contradictory conjectures as to
Just what chord in his evidently
highly-strung nature throbbed most
acutely to tho horror and astonishment of this appalling end of so
short a married lifo.
His eye, which was fixed on the
prostrate body of his bride, did not
yield up its secret. When he moved
and camo to whore she lay and
caught his first sight of the ribbon
aud tho pistol attached to it, the
most experienced among us were
baffled as to the nature of his feelings and thoughts. One thing alone
was patent to all.- He had no wish
to touch this woman whom he had
so lately sworn to cherish. His eyes
devoured her, he shuddered and
strove several times to speak, and
though kneeling by her side, he did
not reach forth his hand nor did he
lot a tear fall on the appealing features so pathetically turned upward
ejt it to meet his look.
Suddonly hs leaped to his feet.
"Must she stay here?" he demanded, looking about for the pcrsoa
most in authority.
The captain answered by a question:
"How do you account for her being here at all? What explanation
huve you, as her husband, to givo
for this atrango suicide of your
wife?"
For reply, Mr. Jeffrey, who was
an exceptionally handsome man,
drew forth a small slip of crumpled
paper, which he Immediately handed
over to the speaker.
"Let her own words explain," said
ho. "I found this scrap of writing
ln our upstairs room when I returned
home to-night. She must have written lt Just boforc—before—"
A smothered groan filled up the
break, but it did not come from his
lips, which Were fixed and set, but
from those of the woman who
crouched amongst us. Bid he catch
this expression of sorrow from one
whose presence ho as yet had given
no token of recognizing? Ho .lid not
seem to. His eyo was on the captain, who was slowly reading, by the
light of a lantern held in a detective's hand, the almost lllcglblo
words which Mr. Jeffrey had Just
said wore bis wife's last communication.

A Rand Rat's Exploits.
"There were a lot of rats ln the
storage room of my stable," writes a
citizen of Johannesburg, South Africa,
"and we bad great difficulty ln getting
at them. They were shy of all traps
and did a tremendous lot of damage at
night, lying quiet all day. At length I
put ln the room n square tin lined box
about two feet deep and in lt placed
some burned cheese. The rats immediately got Interested ln the cheese,
climbed up the outside ot the box and,
having got Inside, could not ascend the
slippery tin lining. In this way we
killed a great many.
"One morning my children took a
cat, which was a very good ratter, and
placed lt ln the box, where there was
already a good sized rat. Tbe cat, instead of tackling the rat, appeared to
make friends with lt. They put their
noses together and frisked around, but
no harm was done, and eventually the
cat jumped out, refusing to tackle the
rat.
"The children thou put ln a keen
dachshund, whleh immediately snap-
pod at the rat and missed lt. The rat
ran arouud the box two or three times,
dodging cleverly, and eventually, by
climbing on tbe dog's back, adroitly
-unioad out of the box and escaped."

THE   IMPROVEMENT  OF  SEED.
By instruction of the Hon. Minister
of Agriculture another distribution
will be made this season of samples
of the most productive sorts of grain
to Canadian farmers for the improvement of seed. The stock for distribution is of the very best anu has been
secured mainly from the excellent
crops recently had at the branch Experimental Farm at Indian Head in
the Northwest Territories. The distribution this spring will consist of
samples of oats, spring wheat, barley, Indian corn and potatoes. The
quantity of oats to be sent this year
will be 4 lbs., and of wheat or barley,
5 lbs., sufficient in each caso to sow
one-twentieth of an acre. The samples
of Indian corn and potatoes will weigh
_ lbs., as heretofore. A quantity of
each of the following varieties has
been securetl for this distribution: —
Oats — Banner, Wide Awake, Improved Ligorvo, Waverley, GFoldflnd-
er, Abundance and Thousand dollar.
Wheat—Preston, Red Fife, Percy,
•Stanley, Huron, Laurel, and White
Fife.
Barley (six-rowed). — Mensury,
Odessa, Mans^eld, Claude and
Itoyal, Two-rowed — Sidney, Invincible, Standwell nntl Canadian Thorpe.
Potatoes—Carman No. 1, Early
White Prize, Cniulinn Beaut.", Uncle
Sam, American Wonder, Bovce, Kar-
ly Andes and  Dale Puritan.
Every farmer may apply, but on!
me sample can ho sent to cell applicant, hence lf an Individual receives
i sample of oats he cannot also receive one of wheat, barley or potatoes, and applications for more than
ono sample for one household can
not be entertained. These samples
,vill be sent free of charge through
the  mail.
Applications should be addressed
to the Director of Experimental farms,
Otawa, and may be sent in any time
before the 1st of March, aft.r which
the lists will be closed, so that all the
samples asked for may be sent out in
good time for sowing. Parties writing
should mention the sort of variety
they prefer, with a second sort as an
alternative, and should the available
stock of both these varieties be ex
hausted, some other good sort will
be sent instead. Those applying for
Indian corn or potatoes, will please
bear in mind that the corn is not
available for distribution until March
or April, and that potatoes cannot
be mailed from here until danger
from frost ln transit Is over.

ACHING   KIDNEYS.
Can Only Be Cured by Enriching the
Blood by the Use of Dr. Williams
Pink Pills.
The kidneys filter every drop of
your blood. The purity of the blood
depend upon the kidneys—and the
health of the kidneys depends upon
the blood. If your bl_od ls weak the
kidneys have not strength for their
work and leave the blooi in-filtered
and foul. If your blood is bad the
kidneys get clogged with painful,
poisonous impurities. That Is what
causes your backache with the dull
pains or sharp stabs of sick kidneys.
And kidney disease Is one of the
most deadly and hope'.ess things
Lhat can attack you. The only hope Is
to strike without delay at the loot of
the trouble in tho blood with Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. They actually
make new blood. They flush the kid
neys clean, heal their in lin in mat i in,
and give them strength for their
work. Common kidney pills only
touch the symptoms—Dr. Williams
Pink Pills cure the cause. That Is
why they cure for good and the
same time Improve the health in
avery way.
Mr. Geo. Johnson, of the village of
Ohio, N. S., gives strong proof of the
truth of the above statements. He
says: "My son, now nineteen years
old. suffered greatly with kidney trouble. He was constantly troubled with
severe pains In the back, and often
passed sleepless nights. His appetite
failed, he grew weak, and could
hardly do the usual work that falls to
the lot of a boy on a farm. We tried
several kidney medicines, but they
did not help him any. Then a friend
recommended Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and this was the first niedl lno
that reached the cause of the trouble.
He used the pills for a couplo of
months, and 1 um thankful to s.iy ii
now as strong and healthy as any

Well babies si o > roundly and wake
nlood that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
will not cure, simply because they
make new, rich, retl blood that ex
pels disease from every part of the
body. Thnt is why they cure the
worst cases of anaemia, indigestion,
neuralgia, rheumatism, hea'a.he,
and backaches, and the spoclal ailments from which women a'one suffer. But only the genuine pills can
lo this, and vou should see that the

one to bo located on the Atlantic
coast, tho second on the Great Lakes
and tho third In British Columbian
waters. Thero will bo eight Instructors to each vessel, obtained presumably from the Royal navy. The naval
militia will be trained for threo seasons and thon go Into the reserve. At
tho end of about eight years lt Is expected to hnve a reserve of 10,000

SLEEPLESS BABIES.
Well babies sleep soundl and wake
up brightly. When babies are restless and sleepless it ia the surest
possible sign of illness—In all probability due to the derangement of the
stomach and bowels, or teething troubles. Baby's Own Tablets are the
only proper remedy. They remove
the trouble and In this way give the
little one sound, refreshing sleep, and
lt wakes up healthy and happy.
Guaranteed to contain no harmful
drug or opiate. ■ Mrs. Thos. Cain,
Lorlng, Ont., says: "My baby suffered
from stomach trouble and teething,
antl was quite cross, got Bab's Own
Tablets and the seemed to work almost like a charm. I think nothing
can equal the Tablets for children's
ailments." You can find them at drug
stores or get them potpald at 25
cents a box by writing the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Bro.kviUe, Ont.
AN INTERESTING TRIP.
A large number of people are taking advantage of the present low excursion rates to the East, and more
than ever are going through the
States on account of the superior
train service and interesting points
enroiito. This Is especially true of
the Burlington route between St.
Paul and Chicago, which runs for
three hundred miles along the banks
of the Mississippi River, and Is one
of tho most picturesque routes in
America. They have published an attractive toller with map and complete time tables, a copy of which,
and any other information concerning
the trip cnn be obtained by address

A Cracked Derby Hat,
If you are ever unfortunate enough
to smash a new derby hat, so that lt
cracks and ln spite of vigorous rubbing and brushing refuses to resume
its pristine smoothness of surface, try
the simple expedient of holding a lighted match inside the hat close to the
broken spot By the time the match
has half burned out yon will find that
the hat has become soft If you then
will brush it vigorously with a stiff
brush for a moment it will regain Its
former smoothness and look as lf nothing bad ever marred Its surface. i
WORST KIND OF POVERTY.
A Mam Mar  Have   Plenty  of  Honor

Much of what Is called success Is but
the most vulgar klud of prosperity; it
is the success of the brute faculties at
the expense of the divine. To develop
a few of one's brain cells, and theso
the lowest, by everlasting digging and
grinding for money, to cultivate one
huge gland which secretes nothing but
dollars and the exclusive cultivation
of which crushes out of life all the
finer sentiments, all that Is sweet and
beautiful and worth while, makes a
man as dry aud barren us the great
Sahara desert. He wbo follows this
course cannot be rich, no matter how
much money he may have. A man ls
rich when every faculty within him
has followed his highest Ideals, when
he has pushed bis horizon to its farthermost limit
A man is poor when he has lost confidence of his friends, when people wbo
are nearest to blm do not believe in
him, when hls'character is honeycombed by deceit, punctured by dishonesty.
He ls poor when be makes money ut
the expense of his' character, when
principle does not stand clear cut, supreme in his idea. When this Is clouded be ls In danger of tbe worst kind
of poverty. To be in the poorbouso
is uot necessarily to be poor. If you
bave maintained your Integrity, If your
character stands foursquare to tbo

of principle to avarice, you are not
poor, though you may be compelled to

THEN      DODD'S     KIDNEY      PILLS
DROVE AWAY ALL HIS PAINS.
Was Bent Over With Pain and Hardly

Consecon, Ont, Dec. 12.—(Special).
—Mr. David Rowe, a well-known and
highly respected farmer, living about
three miles from here, Is telling his
friends of his remarkabl-3 recovery
from a long period of suffering by
the use of Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"I had very severe pains in my
back more or less upwards of two
years," Mr. Rowe says. "These pans
seemed to concentrate their full force
ln the small of my back, and the pain
was almost unbearable. It made ma
go bent over and I could not straighten up to save my life.
"When I went to urinate It gave me
great pain, and you may imagine I
was not able to do much work. Icon-
suited a doctor, but his prescription
did me no good.
"Then I started to use Dodd's Kidney Pills and I felt better by the time
I had used the flrst box. Ten boxes
cured me completely."

An Incubator Without Cash
Until October,  1905
There is big money to be made in raising chickens with an Incubator.
Canada exports annually millions of chickens to the United States and
Great Britain.
The consumption of poultry jn Canada is increasing rapidly and the
poultry dealers complain that they cannot get enough poultry to fill their
orders.
One woman bought a No. l Chatham Incubator the first of March
—she had five hatches by July first and had four hundred plump,
sturdy chicks. In six months her Incubator had paid her $100.00, several
times its cost   A Chatham Incubator should pay for itself each hatch.
We have perfected an Incubator and brooder. We believe it is now
absolutely the best in the world. We have sufficient capital behind us, and
we are out for the entire business in incubators. We know that there is no
other incubator that can approach the
Chatham Incubator
This is our proposition: To demonstrate our absolute confidence in the Chatham Incubator
we will send one to you, freight prepaid, and you make your first payment in October, 1905.
The fact that we sell our Incubators in this manner guarantees them to the fullest extent.
Thirty days' trial is a delusion and a snare. If you have good luck you may get off one hatch in
that time, and even then you ore uncertain, and if you reject the machine you will have to pay the
freight both ways. But with us you send in your order and we ship the machine prepaid. When
it arrives, if it seems all right, start your hatch, and we will give you until October, 1905, before
you have to pay a cent in cash. We positively guarantee that the machine is a good hatcher.
Every machine should sell a dozen, and we will, on no account, allow a machine that is defective
to remain in any neighborhood.

MR.   CHARLES   A.   BARBER,
Editor of the  Pilot  Mound  Sentinel.
lt haB long passed Into a truism
that ln the New World men "arrive"
much sooner than ln the Old. On this
continent ability outranks experience,
whereas in Europe, experience being
proven, ability is assured. On the
other side of the Atlantic youth is lo
Borne extent a handicap—a disadvantage that time alone cau cure. On
thla side we believe with Shakespeare, that "youth will be serve-,"
and, other conditions being equal, the
younger and more energetic men are
given preference. Hence young men
—mere striplings they would be considered in older lands—are to be
found in all parts of Canada anil the
States filling positions of the greatest
responsibility, planning and directing
J. industries of colossal magnitude anil
governing enterprises of nat'onal Importance.
It is therefore only natural that, the
younger the state or province, the
younger Ib the average of the men
prominent therein. The New Englanri
States and the Maritime Province.
and Ontario do not offer to young am
bitlon the sam e opportunity as the
West. Conservatism creeps into al
communities, and the sympathies ol
the old settlements of the New World
have much In common with tho oldei
civilizations. But the parties and the
Pacific slopo yet remain, the unilis
puted heritage of youth and ability,
and there is to be found the true land
of opportunity for him who fears nol
to put his fortune and his manhood to
the test.
Journalism the world over is in i
peculiar sense the profession of young
men, but nowhere are editors youngei
than In some towns In Weste;n Can
ada, which has been remarkable ai
much for the youth as for the ubiliiy
of many of the men of the "fifth estate." A case in point is that of Mi-
Charles A. Barber, editor of the Pilot
Mound Sentinel. At an age whei
most newspaper men are repotting
and most printers' ambitions woul
be realized by a foremanship, he is:
newspaper proprietor. To hav<
achieved thus much after seven y a'
of work Is a record of which any om
might well be proud. It is an nccon
pllshment that speaks much for Mr
Barber's energy and abil'ty, and al?o
much for the country that offers to i
young man of the required character
lstlcs such opportunities for self-advancement. It is a record that many
another young man in tho West has
duplicated In journalistic and other
fields, and one of which any Western
Canadian can point with pardonable
enthusiasm.
Mr. Barber Is a British Columbian
by birth, having been born ln the
beautiful village of Chilliwack in September 1879. When four years old his
parents removed east, locating at
Wlngham, 0nt„ at the public school
of whoh place he received his education.
School days over, Mr. Barber spent
four years ln finding his aptitudes. Hi
did "whatever came along." Gradual
ly his mind became bent towaril
newspaper work, in which he saw a
wide Held for originality, brightness
and success.
It was ln the Wlngham Advancr
that Mr. Barber commenced his c.
reer as a newspaper man. For three
years he remained there, at llrst tin
der Mr. Cornyn, and later under thr
present proprietor, Mr. Hall. In 1900
he took a positon in the job office ot
C. P. Heel & Co., London. He had
not been long in London whan he was
offered and accepted the toremanshir
of the Lucknow Sentinel, and foi
three years he broadened his fieli'
of observation and trained himself lr
the technique of newspaper work un
der Mr. James Bryan, the able odito
of that paper. Mr. Barber's threr
years' work n Lucknow were largely
Instrumental in developing the qunll-
tieB that will determine his career. Hi
himself Is a firm believer In the fact
tha. not ability alone, but character
and ability, are necessary for a sue
cessful editor, and the young foreman
of the Sentinel displayed while in
Lucknow those qualities of manliness,
earnestness and conscientious thor
oughnesn that gained him the confidence and respect of the offico and
its customers and the commun'ty.
In 1903 the West, where he had
been born, beckoned Mr. Barbel
again toward the setting sun. He
pulled up stakes and struck out for
Winnipeg. For throo months he
worked on the Free Press, Canada's
biggest daily, and after this preliminary western canter he started a ca
reor for himself by purchasing the
Pilot Mound Sentinel and its aceos-
sory business fourteen months ago.
In that space of time Mr. Barber
has made his mark on tho S.ntiinel
and hia influence felt throughout the
field of its circulation. His arrival
at Pilot Mound coincided with the
town's awakening from the torpor and
lethargy of years.and the deBlro of Its
citizens for civic unity and progress.
In ths renaissance none was as helpful
as the new editor. In the paper Itself he
made many changes. The makeup was
rearranged and its typographical ap
pearauce improved. Indeed, as far as
mechanical care and printing-taste Is
cccicerned, few papers in the West
are superior to that published at Pilot
Mound, and Mr. Barber's Intenton is
to still further improve it, as developing business gives him additional
means, and demands additional facil-
ties. And the mechanical Improve
ment of the Sentinel has been kept
pace with by its news columns. The
local happenings are recorded with
brightness and interest, as to make
the Sentinel a welcome weekly visitor ln the homes of the prosperous
farming community among which it
circulates. Politically the Sentinel has
not allied itself to any party, for the
reason that there is but one paper in
"the Mound," and on matters political
the policy of the paper is to remain
neutral, and hold the balance even.
Mr. Barber believes that the field of
the local paper is not tho dlscuss'on
of provincial  and  federal  issues, but

Turning from the editor to tho man,
a word might be said. In all respects
Mr Barber is a fine cltzen, and the
representative of a type of which no
country can have too many. He is a
"sport" of the proper kind. He handles a lacrosse stick In great shape,
and Is captain of the town lacro_.se
team, while at football he "handles his
feet" with equal keenness and Bk'll
By rligiou he is a Methodist, and is
president of the Epworth League in
Pilot Mound. He has none of the
"manly vices," for he neither smokes
aor swears, and is a total abstainer.
As yet he is unmarried.—but that, it
ls asserted, is not the fault of the
young lades of the Mound.
It will thus be seen that Mr. Barber Is a many-phased and respect
worthy man, taking an active inter-
.>st in social, athletic, public and religious aflairs. He is a good pi inter,
i good editor and a good citizen, and
lis early success may be regardela.

flill accord him as the years pass by.

A PERSIAN TRAGEDY.
-uMimo Connie by Whlctl Princes!
Salome E.caped Her Maeler.
James Baker, a well known traveler
and -writer, tells a curious story of a
war 100 years ago. The Persian shah
was besieging Tlflls, and the husband
of the Princess Salome had been slain
in the siege. When tbe Persians entered nnd sacked the town Salome
tried to save her young sou, but he was
torn from her arms and hacked lu
pieces before hor eyes. Her own life
was spared and she was borne to the
camp outside tlie walls of Tiflls to the
shnll. He sold her to DJafar Bek, who
abut her up In a castle—a part of which
still remains—near where now is tbe
lovely tropical botanical garden of
Tlflls. Charmed by her beauty, he ask
cd her to become his wife. She refused and begged her purchaser te
slay her. The Persian gave her a night
to reconsider tlie matter and on the
next dny he lay reclining ou a great
cushion under a tree on that hot, sunny hillside and awaited her answer.
Presently she appeared before him,
veiled In a long, pure white robe, calm
and stately, her face deathly pale. She
advanced, her armed jailers following
her. The Persian waved his followers
aside and asked the princess, "You con-
>xiit to be my wife." "Yes," was the
solemn answer. "I consent to love
you, for after the death of my husband
and son lt ls my destiny; there ls no
other fate for me.
"In Georgia," said the princess,
"there aro certain families that possess
strange powers and dark secrets. My
mother foretold I should be tho wife of
a DJafar, and from my mother I, too,
receive these powers to read the future." Tho Persian wns impressed by
her manner and her presence. Shesaw

Iron Malting In Early History.
Iron was used before history was
written. The stono records of Egypt
and the brick books of Nineveh mention lt Genesis (Ix, 22) refers to Tu-
balcaln as "as Instructor of every artificer ln brass and iron," and ln Deuteronomy (ill, 11) the bedstead of the
giant Og was "a bedstead of Iron."
Tho gnlleys of Tyre and SIdon traded
lu this metal. Chinese records ascribed to 2,000 B. C. refer to lt Horace
speaks of lt as superior to bronze. The
bronze age came before the iron ago
because copper, found as a nearly pure
metal, easily fuses, and with another
soft metal—tin or zinc—alloys into
hard bronze, whilo iron, found only as
an ore, must bave tbo Impurities burned nnd hammered out by great beat
and force before lt can be made into a
tool.

Dressmakers on the Sireec.
An odd fact about dressmakers ls
that nearly all of them have the same
fault—on the street they cut their
friends. A noted dressmaker said In
explanation of this fact: "The street ls
to us dressmakers what a picture gallery ls to artists—a grand storehouse
of ideas. On the street we are always
on the lookout for new fashions, and
from the neck down we study every
person that passes, for from one we
may get a new skirt pattern, from another a new sleeve, from a third a new
collar, and so on. We arc never busier
than when on the street; our eyes are
never more alert, but they don't reach
up to the face level; they can't spare
the time from their study of dresses to
go any higher than the neck. And
hence on the street we cut impartially
our mothers, our sisters, our best
friends."

SHIRT
Made big enough for a big
man to work in with comfort.
Has more material in it than
any other brand of shirt in
Canada. Made on the
H.B.K. scale it requires 39*^
to 42 yards per dozen, whereas
common shirts have only 32
to 33 yards.
That's the reason why the
H.B.K. "Big" Shirt never
chafes the armpits, is never
tight at the neck or wristbands, is always loose, full
and comfortable and wears
well.
Each shirt bears a tiny book
that tells the whole history
of the "Big" Shirt, and
also contains a notarial
declaration that the H.B.K.
"Big" Shirt contains 39#
to 42 yards of material per
dozen.
Sold at all dealers but only
with this brand:—

Turpentine Is composed of simple ingredients of unquestioned curative
power, Is pleasant to the taste, well

"Our children have been very subject to croup, and we have found that
Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine has always brought quick relief. By using it at the first sign of
trouble the diseas. is checked at
once. We always keep this remedy
In the house, and, In fact, feel that we
could not do without It. We nlso use
it for coughs and colds with excellent
results, and recommend It to our

I'. pini) i' 1, through your columns, to
iufoi'in the ratepayers in general of
Soijib Vancouver, that the Reeve unil
Qpunoil nro liiaktng arrangemeuts to
get ajiotjior large loan on Ihe MuuipJ-
pality, pot withstanding the Reeve gave
both his v, I'itten and verbal pledge, at
j 1 jr, last contestei) elec tiou. that he would
uot. cudprro or be a party to any such
proposition, but on Uie contrary lie
would strongly oppose any such loan
As most ol' yonr renders nre aware,
fhe present debt oi' tlie Municipality ia ?
drain qn tlj_ j'pvouive for interest r.nd
sinking fond, uml if (mother load of
debt is added il will erlplo tlio prqgress
of the Jlmiiiji'iiliJy lor a cousidernble
timo to come
In case tho Municipality got ponjyol
of Ihe Government Reservo nenr Point
Qfrey, it might be uecejrsai'y to borrow
money to get it surveyeil aiid roads
opened up through il, before, putting it
pn the market, in which ease the ratepayers would get gnuip return for their
money. Hut under present conditions
there i&jio excuse whatever for getting
another loan.
lt was not discussed or Bijggested at
themeetiugof ratepayers on Nomination Day, nfid. from the pasf record of
the present Keeve and Council, we
cau iiiif ri'usoniibly hope tllijt such 'o:in,
if grauted, would be judiciously expend-
ep in Ihe interests of those who would
havo to pay the money.
With regard .to a ditch for drainage
p .rposes, which is wanted by some
residents near Cedar Cottngo, 1 submit
it would be better for theni tq get up a
Local improvement .Scheme, either
under the Drainage and Dyking Act, or
the Municipal Act.
' Some years ago (here wus a large
amount 01" the ratepayers money paid
for a road roller, Which, so fur t:s I
__m)W| bus never been used, and certain*
ly for years to my own knowledge bus
been lying ou the roadside rusting!
Then again the Steves' east cost the
ratepayers approximately thirteen
thousand dollars.
List year, aud the yonrbofore, several
thousand dollars has beou paid for nn
i'ii;.*iiie and rook crusher, nud UOW the
Reeve says he is going to get another
rook crusher i.ml motor, 1 te. A trip
over Westminster avenue will satisfy
a ny person of ordinary intelligence that
the so-called rock put ou the road lust
year wus only lit for ballast or .tiling
Owiug fo softness.
I submit its lime for tlio ratepayers
to shut down 011 reckless nud tiunrofit-
able expeniUluri'.
Thut the revenue if judiciously ox-
pi mini is sufficient for present neftds.
Tlmt passable roads aud low taxation
are tho greatest Inducements to seniors
to live in tlie Municipality,
1 would uilvise ratepayers not to sigu
11 petition asking for such loan nntil
they hour it publicly discussed.
And I would further, suggest the
formation of a Ratepayers Association/
to look after tho interests of the .lule-
payers generally, nml to educate the
large dormant vole to a souse of duty us
citizens. Those iu favor of such uu
organization will please comnuiuictite
with me, after which wo mny call a
meeting to consider it.

Over this rather simple upper part a

far less prosaic use. The sleeves ure
Immensely full, curiously shaped tabs

In flowing lines over the more severu

Carefully tailored antl exceedingly

Very English in Ils avoidance of any
unnecessary touch of elaboration and
cut on severe lines, It answers the purpose thoroughly well, and has one rather novel advantage. Unlike iouls of
tlie same type. It does; not open from
throat to hem, but must be put on over
the head, u.i tbe opening extends very
little further than the waist line. This
makes It excellent for automobiliug or

Preparation for   the   Future.
Socrates was once asked b.v a pupil,
this question: 'iVVhat kind of peoplo
shnll we be wheu wc reach Elysium V"
And the answer was, "We shall bo
Ihe snme kind of peoplo there that we
were here."
If there is a life after this, we are
preparing for it uow, just as I am today
preparing for my life for tomorrow.
Whut kind of a uinu shall I bo
tomorrow V
Oh, about, the samp kiud of a man
that I-uni now.
The kind of a man I shall bo next
month depeuds upon (he kind of a man
I have been this month.
If I am miserable today, it Is not
within tlie round of probabilities that I
shall be supremely huppy tomorrow.
Heaven is u habit. And if we arc going
to Heaven we would better be getting
used Iii it.
Life is a preparation for the future;
and the best preparation for the future,
is to live as if there wero uono.
Wo ure preparing all the time for old
ngo. The two things that make old ago
bountiful uro resignation nud consideration for the rights of others.
In Ihc play of "Ivan the Terrible,"
the iuterost centers arouud one man,
the Czar Ivan. If anybody but Richard
Mansfield played the part, there, would
be nothing in it. Wo simply get n
glimpse iuln tbo life ui'a tyrant who has
run the gamut of goosedom, selflshucss,
grnmpinese and grouch. Incideiitally,
this men hud the power lo put other
men to death, r.nd this he does nud hns
done as whim und temper might dictate.
Ho has been cruel, vindictive, quarrelsome, tyrannical aud terrible. Now
that he fools the approach of dentil, he
would mnke his pence wilh God. Bnt
he has delayed that matter too long.
He din't realize iu youth nud middle
life that ho was theu preparing for old
age
Man is a result of cause and effect,
nml causes aro to a degree in our own
hands. Life is fluid, and well has it
been called the stream of life—wo are
going, flowing somewhere.
Every tb*fl u and villinge has its Ivan.
To bp au Ivan, just turn your temper
loose a id practice cruelty on any person
or thing within your reach, and the
result will bo a snro preparation for a
querulous, quarclsomc, pickery, snipity,
fussy and foolish old age, accented
wilh Outbursts of wrath tlmt are
terrible in their ineffectiveness.
Babyhood has uo monopoly on tho
taulruni.
Wo ofteu honr of the beauties of old
age, but tlie only old ago that- is beautiful is the one the mini hns been long
'preparing for b.v living a beautiful lifo.
We are ull preparing now for old age.
