We naa neen uiscussing mr. -tcnrej
and Miss Tuttle, when suddenly, nnd
with no apparent motive beyond tho
natural love of gossip which was her
weakness, sho launcbed out into remarks' about the bride. Tho ceremony
had been late; did I know it? A half-
hour or three-quarters past tho timo
sot for it. And why? Because Miss
MooFo was not ready. She had chosen to array herself in the houso and
had come early enough for tho pur-
.poso; but sho would not accept any
assistance, not pvcn that of her maid,
and of course she kept every one
waiting. "Oh, thoro was no more uneasy soul in tho wholo party that
morning than the bride!" Let other
people remark upon the high look in
Cora Tuttle's face, or gossip about
the anxious manner of tho bridegroom; sho, the speaker, could tell
things about the brido which would
go to show that sho was not all
right oven before that ominous
doath's-hoad rearod itself into view
at hor marriage festival. Why, the
fact that sho came downstairs and
was married without her bridal bou-
quot was enough. Had there not
been so much else to talk about,
*fer __L._peoplo would have talked about that.
W- *-*" But the big event had so effectually
t- **.' Swallowed up tho littlo that only
jfc herself, and possibly two other    lad
ies'she might name, seemed to retain
«, * - — ~f the mattor.
*   ".Whut ladies?'' I asked.
"Oh, it doesn't matter what ladies, Two of the very best sort. I
know they noticed it, because I heard
them talking nbout It. We were all
standing in tbe upper hall nnd wero
all crowded into a passage leading
to the room whero the bride was
dressing. It was before tho alarm
had gone around of what had been
discovered in the library, and we
wero all impatient enough for tho
appearance of the bride, who, wc had
been told, intended to wear the old
point in which her great-grandmother was married. I have a weakness
for old point and I was determined
to stand where I could see her como
out, oven if I lest sight of tho ceremony itself. Hut it would have
been tedious eno:jgh waiting in that
closo hair if tha ladies behind me
had not kept up a conversation,
which I, of course, pretended not to
hear. I remember it, every word, for
it was my sole amusement for half
an hour. What was It? Oh, It was
about that same bouquet, which, by
the way, I had tho privilege of staring at all the time they chatted. For
the bov who brouRht It had not been
admitted into Miss Moore's room,
and, not knowing what else to do
with It. was lingering before her
door, with the great streamers falling from his hands, nnd tho lilies
making the whole place heavy with a
sickening perfume. From what I
heard the ladies say, he had been
standing there an hour, and the timid knock he gavo from time to time
produced in me an odd feeling which
those ladies behind ine seemed to
" 'It's a shame!' I heard ono ol
thom cry. 'Veronica Moore has no excuse for such thoughtlessness. It is
an hour now that she has been shut
up in her rooms alone. Sho won't
have oven her maid in. She prefers
to dress alone, sho says. Peculiar
in a bride, isn't it? But ono thing
is certain: sho can not put on her

call some ono in for that.' At which
tho other volunteered that the
Moores were all queer, and that, she
v . didn't envy Francis Joflrey. 'what!
not with fifty thousand a year to
lighten her oddities?' returned her
companion with a shrug which communicated itself to mo, so closely
were we packed together. 'I have a
son who could bear with them under
such circumstances.' Indeed she has,
and all Washington knows it, but tho
remark passed without comment, for
they had not yet exhausted the main
event, and tho person thev now attacked was Miss Tuttlo. 'Why doesn't
sho como and soo that the bouquet le
taken in? I declare it's not decent.
Mr. Jeffrey would not feel complimented if he knew tho fate of thoso
magnificent lilies and roses. I presume he furnished tho bouquet.'
" 'Miss Tuttle has looked out of
her room onco,' I heard tho other
reply. 'She is in splendid beauty
to-day, but pale. But she never
could control Voronica.' Hush! you
.... speak louder than you think.' This
amused me, and I do believo that in
another moment I should have laugh-
od outright if another bov had not
appeared ka the hall before us, who,
shoving aside the first, rapped on the
door with a spirit which called for
answer. But he was no moro successful than the otlier boy had been-
so, being a brisk fellow, with no
time for nonsense, ho called out,
'Your bouquet, Miss, and a mesage,
which I am to give you beforo you
go downstairs! Tho gentleman is
quito particular about it.' These
words wero literally shoutod at tho
door, but In the hubbub of voices
about us I don't believo any one
heard them but ourselves nnd tho
brldo. 1 know that she heard them,
for she opened the door a very
littlo way,—such a vory littlo way
j that the boy had to put his lips to
tho crack when he spoke, and then
turn nnd place liis ear where his lips
had been in order to catch her reply.
This, for somo reason, neemed a long
timo in coming, and the fellow grew
so impatient that ho amused himself
by snatching the bouquet from tho
other boy and thrusting H in
through tho crack, to the very grent
detriment of its roses and lilies.
Whon she took it ho bawled for his
answer, and when ho got it, he stared and muttered doubtfully to him-
. self as ho worked his way out again
through tho crowd, which by this
.. ttaw was beginning to choke up all
the halls and stairways.
,.. "But why have I told you all this
nonsense?" sho asked quite suddenly.
"It- isn't of the least consoquenco
that Veronica Mooro kept a boy
waiting ut her door whilo sho dressed herself for her wedding; but it
shows that sho was queer even then,
and I for ono believo in the| theory
of suicide, and in that alono, and in
(ho oxcuse she gave for it, too; for

lint comment, even from thoso who
had known theso peoplo well, waa
not what 1 wanted at this moment,
but facts. So, without much attention to these words, 1 said:
"Vou will excuse me if I suggest
that you arc going on too fast. Tho
door of tlie bride's room has just
been shut upon the boy who brought
her a message. When was it opened
"Not for a good half-hour; not till
every ono had grown nervous and
Miss Tuttle and one or two of hor
most intimate friends had gone mora
than onco to her door; not, in fact,
till tho hour for the ceremony had
come und gone and Mr. Jeffrey hud
crossed tho hall twice under tlie impression that sho was really for him.
Then, when weariness was general
and people were asking what kept
tho brido and how much longer they
wero to be kept waiting, her door
suddenly opened and I caught a
glimpse of her face und heard her
usk at lust for her maid. O, I repeat that Veronica Mooro was not
all right, that duy, and though 1
have heard no one comment on tho
fact, it has been a mystery to mo
over since why she gave that sudden
recoil when Francis Jeffrey took her
hand after the benediction. It was
not timidity, nor was it fear, for
sho did not know till a minute afterward what had happoned in the
nouse. um bum. -uuuiiii reau-u.io_>
of what she had dono in marrying a
man whom sho herself declared sho
did not love come when it was too
late?    What do you think?"
Miss Freeman had forgotten herself; but the impetuosity which had
led her into asking my opinion made
her forget in another moment that
sho had dono so. And when in my
turn I propounded a question and inquired whether she over again saw
the boy who besieged tho bride's
door with a message, she graciously
"Tho boy; let mc see. Yes, I saw
him twice; once in a back hall talking earnestly to Mr. Jeffrey, and secondly nt the carriage door just beforo the bridal party rode away. It
was Mrs. Jeffrey who was talking to
him then, and I wondered to see him
look so pleased when everybody in
and about the house was pale as
"Uo you know tho namo of that
boy?" I carelessly inquired.
"His namo? 0 no. Ho is one of
Raucher's waiters; tho curly-haired
ono. You see him everywhere; but 1
don't know his name. Do you flatter yourself that he can tell you anything that other people don't know?
Why, if he knew the least thing that
wasn't in everybody's mouth, you
would have heard from him long
ago. Thoso men are the greatest
gossips in town '—I wonder what she
thought of herself,—"and so proud
to be of any importance." This was
true enough, though I did not admit
it at the time; and when tho interview was closed and I went away, 1
havo no doubt sho considered me
quite tho most heavy person sho had
over met. But this did not disturb
me. The little facts she had stated
were new.to me and, repeating my
former method, I was already busy
arranging them in my mind. Witness tho result:
1. Tho ceremony of marriage between Francis Jeffrey and Veronica
Mooro Was fully thrco-quarters of an
hour late.
2. This was owing to the caprice
of the bride, who would not have
any one in tho room with hor, not.
oven her maid.
3. The bridal bouquet did not figure in tho ceremony. In tho flurry
of tho momont It was forgotten or
purposely left bohind by the bride.
As this bouquet was undoubtedly the
gift of Mr. Jeffrey, the fact may be
4. Sho received a message of a
somewhat peremptory character before going below. From whom? Her
bridegroom? It would so appear
from the character of tho message.
5. The messongcr showed great
astonishment at tho reply ho was
given to carry back. Yet he has not
been known to mention tho mattor.
Why? Whon every one talked he
was silent. Through whose influence
This was something to find out.
0. Though at tho timo tho benediction was pronounced evory ono
was In a state of alarm except tho
bride, it was noticed that she gave
an involuntary, recoil when her
bridegroom stooped for tho customary kiss. Why? Were tho lines of
her last farewell true then, and did
she experience at that moment a sudden realization of hor lack of love?
7. Sho did not go again upstairs,
but vory soon fled from the house
with tho rost of the bridal party.
Petty facts, all, but possibly more
signiiicant than appeared. I mado
up my mind to lind the boy who
brought tho bouquet and also tho
one who carried buck her messngo.
Bur here a surprise, if not a check,
awaited ine. The florist's boy had
left his place and no ono could tell
whero ha had gone. Noither could I
find tho curly-haired wuitor at Raucher's. Ho had left also, but It was
to join the volunteers at San Antonio.
Wus there meaning in this coincidence? I resolved to know. Visiting the former haunts of both boys
I failed to come upon any evidence
of au understanding between them,
or of their having shown any spocial
interest in tho Jeffrey tragedy. Both
seemed to have been strangely reticent in regard to It, the florist's
boy showing stupidity and tho waiter such satisfaction in his prospective soldiering that no other topic
was deemed worthy his attention.
The latter had a f.istcr and she
could not say enough of tho delight
her brother hgd shown at the prospect of riding a horso again and of
lighting in such good company. Ho
had somo experience ns a cowboy
beforo coming to Washington, and
from tlio moment war was declared
hnd expressed his intention of joining tlio recruits for Cuba as soon as
ho could see hor provided for that
his death would not rob hor of proper   support.      How   this   had come
niuiiit. ane flm not" know. Three
weeks before he had been in despair
over the faint prospect of doing
what he wished; theu suddenly, and
without any explanation of how the
change had come about, he had rushed in upon her with tho news that he
was going to enlist in a company
made up of bronco busters and rough
riders from the West, that sne need
not Worry about herself or about
him, for he had just put five hundred dollars to her account in bank,
and that as for himself ho possossed
a charmed life and Was immune, as
she well knew, and need fear bullets
no more than the fever. By this he
meant that he had had yellow fever
years before i Louisiara, and that
a ball which !__, <c been fired at
him had gone clean through his
body without taking his' lifo.
"What was the date of the evening
on wliich ho told you he had placed
money in bank for you?"
"April the twenty-ninth."
'. wo duys after the J effrey-Moore
Convinced now that his departure
from town was something more than
a coincidence, I pursued my inquiries and found that ho had been received, just us she had said, into tho
First Volunteer Corps under Colonel
Wood. This required influence.
Whose wns tlio influence? It took mo
somo time to find out, but after
many nnd various attoinpts, most of
which ended in luilure, I succeeded in
learning that the man who hud worked and obtained for him a place in
this favored corps was Francis Jof-
I did somo tall thinking that night.
I remembered thut this man had held
some conversation with the Jeffreys
at their carriage door previous to
their departure from tho Mooro
house, and found myself compelled to
believo that only a matter of importance to themselves as well as to
him would have detained them at
such a minute. Oh, that Tampa
wero not so far off or that I had
happened on this clue earlier! ' But
Tampa waa »t that moment a far
prospect for mo and I could only reason from such facts as I had been
able to collect in Washington.
Fixing my mind now on Mrs. Jeffrey, I asked the cause of the many
caprices which had marked her conduct on her wedding morning. Why
had she persisted in dressing alone,
and what occasioned tho absorption
which led to her ignoring all appeals
at her door at a time when a woman is supposed to be more than usually irracious? But one answer suggested Itself. His hoart was not In
hor marriage, and that last hour of
her maidenhood had been an
hour of anguish and struggle. Perhaps she not only failed to love
Francis Jeffrey, but loved some othor man. This seemed improbable,
but things as strange as this have
happened in our complex society and
no reckoning can be made with a
woman's fancy. If this was so—and
what other theory would better or
even so well account for her peculiar
behavior both then and afterward?
Tho hour usually given by brides to
dress and gladsome expectation was
with her ono of farewell to past hopes and an unfortunate, if not passionate, attachment. No wonder
that she wished to be alone. Ne
wonder that interruption angered her.
Perhaps it had found her on her
knees. Ferhaps— Hero I felt my-
»olf seized by a strong and sudden
excitement. I remembered the filing's
I had gathered up from the small
stand by the window, filings which
had glittered and which must have
been of gold. Whnt was tho conclusion? In this last hour of her maiden
lifo she had sought to ride herself
of some article of jewelry which she
found it undersirable to carry into
her new life. What articlo of jewelry?
In consideration of the circumstances and the hour, I could think ol
but ono. A ring! tho symbol of some
old attachment.
The slight abrasion at the base
of her third finger, which had been
looked upon as the result of too
rough and speedy a withdrawing of
the wedding-ring on the evening of
hor death, was much more likely to
have been occasioned by the reopening of some little wound made two
weeks belore by the file. If Durbin
and tha rest had taken into account
these filings, they must have come to
very much the same conclusion; but
either thoy had over-looked them in
thoir search about the place, or,
having noted them, regarded them as
a clue leading nowhere.
But for mo they lod the way to a
very definito Mnquiry. Asking to see
the rings Mrs. Jeffrey had left behind her on the night she went for
tho last time to the Moore houso, I
looked them carefully over, and
found that none\oi them showed the
least mark of the'i-ile. This strengthened my theory, and I proceeded lo
tako my next step with Increased
confidence. It seemed an easy ono,
but proved unexpectedly difficult. My
dosire was to ascertain whether she
had worn previous to her marriage
any rings which had not been seen or,
her finger since, and it took mo ono
whole week to establish the fact that
slui had.
But that fact once learned, tho way
cleared beforo mo. Allowing my
fancy full rein, I pictured to myself
her anxious figure standing alone in
that ancient und ghostly room ill ing
off this old ring from her dainty
finger. . Then I asked myself what
she would be likely to do with this
ring after disengaging it from hor
hand? Would she keep it? Perhaps;
but if so, wby could it not be
found? None such had boon discovered among her effects. Or had she
thrown it away, and if so, where?
Tho vision of her which I had just
seen In my mind's eyo came out with
a clearness at this, which struck mo
as providential. I could discern • as
plainly as if I had boen a part of
the sceno.the white-clad form of tho
brido bending toward the light which
camo in sparsc.ly through   the   half-
7, PI US,
open snuttor she had loosened for
this task. This was the shutter
which had aever again been fastened
and whose restless blowing to and
fro had flrst led attention te this
house and the crime it might otherwise have concoaled indefinitely. Had
some glimpse oi the rank grass
growing underneath this wiadow lured her eye and lod hor to cast away
the ring which she had no longer
any right to keep? It would be like
a woman to yield to such an im-
pulso; and on the Btrongth of tho
possibility I decided to search this
small plot for what it might very
reasonably conceal.
But I did not wish to do this opon-
ly. I was not only afraid of attracting Durbin's attention by an attempt which could only awaken his
disdain, but I hesitated to arouse
the suspicion .1 Mr. Moore, whoso interest in his newly acquirod property
made him very properly alert to any
trespass upon it.
The undertaking, therefore, presented difficulties. But it was my business to overcome these, and before
long I conceived a plan by which
every blade ol grass in tho narrow
slrip running in front of this house
might be gone over without rousing
anything more serious than Uncle
David's ire.
Calling together a posso of streot
urchins, I organized them into a
bartd, with thu promise of a good
supper all around if ono of them
brought me the plocos of a broken,
ring which I had lost in tho grass
plot of a houso whero I had been
called upon to stay all night. That
they might win the supper in tho
shortest possible time and before the
owner ol this houso, who lived opposite, could interfere, I advised
thom to start at the fence in a loug
line and, proceeding on their knees,
to search, each ono, the ground bo-
fore him to tho width of his own
body. Tho fortunate one was to
havo the privilego of saying what
the supper should consist of. To
givo a plausible excuse for this
search, a ball was to be tossed up
and down tho street till it lighted in
the Moore house inclosure.
It was a scheme to fire the street
boy's soul, and I was only afraid of
failure from tho over-enthusiasm it
aroused. But the Injunctions which
I gave them to spare the shrubs and
not to tramplo the grass uny mora
than was necessary were so minuto
und impressive that they moved
away to their task in unexpected
order and with a subdued cheerfulness
highly promising of success.
I did not accompany them. Jinny,
who has such an innocent nir on tho
street, took my place and promenaded up and down the block, just to
see that Mr. Mooro did not make loo
much trouble. And it was well sho
did so, for though be was not at
home,—I had chosen the hour of his
afternoon ride,—his new man-servant
was; and he no sooner perceived this
crowd of urchins making for the op-
posite house than he rushed at them,
and would have scattered them far
and wide in a twinkling if the
demure dimples of my little ally had
not come Into piny and distracted
his attention so completely as to
mako hiin forget the throng of unkempt hoodlums who seemed bound
to invade his master's property. She
was looking for Mr. Moore's house,
she told him. Did ho know Mr.
Mooro, and his house which was
somewhere near? Not his new, great,
big house, where the horrible things
took place of which she had read
in the papers, but his littlo old
house, which she had heard was
soon to bo for rent, and which sho
thought would bo just the right size
for herself and mother. Was that it?
That dear littlo place all smothered
ia vines? How lovely! nnd what
would tho rent bo, did he think?
and had it a back-yard with garden-
room enough for her to raise pinks
and nasturtiums? and so on, and so
on, while ho starod with delighted
eyes, and tried to put in a word
edgewise, and the boys—well, they
wont through that strip of grass in
just ten minutes. My brave littlo
Jinny had just declared with her
most roguish smile that sho would
run home and toll her mother all
about this sweetest of sweet little
places, when a shout rose from the
other side of the street, and that
collection of fifteen or twenty boys
scampered away as if mad, shouting
in joyous echo of the boy at their
"It's to be chicken, heaping plates
of ico cream and sponge-cake."
By which token she knew that tho
ring had been found.
.        • .....
When they brought this ring to me
I would not havo exchanged pluc.es
with any man on earth. As Jinny
herself was curious enough to stroll
along about this time, I held it out
where wo both could seo it and draw
our conclusions.
It was a plain gold circled set with a
singlo small ruby. It was tut
through and twisted out of shape
just'as I had anticipated; and ns I examined it I wondered whnt part it
had played and was yet destined to
play in the drama of Veronica Jeffrey's mysterious life and still more
mysterious death. That lt was a
factor of some importance, arguing
somo early school-girl love, I could
but gather from the fact that its removal from her finger was offe-led
in secrecy and under circumstances
of such p.osslng haste. How could I
learn tho story of that ring and Iho
possiblo connection between It and
Mr. Jeffrey's professed joalousy of
his wife and tho disappointing honeymoon which had followed tbelr marriage? That this feeling on his part
had antedated tho ambassador's ball
no one could question; but that it
had started as fur back as tho wedding day was a new idea to mo and
one which suggested many possibilities. Could this idea be established,
and, if so, how? But ono avenuo 6f
inquiry offered itself. The waiter,
who had been spirited away so curiously immediately after tho wod-
dlng, might bo able to give us somo
information on this interesting point.
He had been the medium of the messages which had passed between her
and Mr. Jeffrey just prior to Ihe
ceremony; afterward ho had been
seen talking earnestly to that, gentleman and later with her. Certainly, it would add to our understanding of tho situation to know what
reply she hud sent lo the peremptory
demand made upon her at so critical
a time,—an understanding so desirable that the very prospect of it was
almost enough to warrant a journey
to Tampa. Yot, say that tho results were disappointing, how much
time lost and what a sum of money!
I felt the in ed ot advice in this
criuls, yet hesitated to ask it. My
cursed pride und my no less cursed
jealously of Durbin stood very much
in my way st this time.

Paris Sensation.
The very latest Paris sensation ls
known as !_'Auto-bolide, and is one
of the most daring feats ever undertaken by a public performer. In this
case tho latter is a lady, who rides
in a fast-traveling motor-car down a
specially prepared and lofty track
built almost in the form of the let-
tor S. The middle curve of tho latter is cut away so that tho car takes
a leap upside-down to the track upon
the opposite side, where It again
catches the curve, ond finishes the
run in its normal position. The distance actually traveled by tho car
without any support and with the
performer head downwards ls Just
over 30 feet. What would happen
if the car failed to strike the descending curve fairly after its aerial
flight ono docs not care to imagine.
Needless to say, the show is one of
an unusually thrilling character.
Treasure, ol the Kremlin.
The ikons in the Cathedral of the
Assumption in the Kremlin at Moscow are immensely valuable. They
yielded about flvo tons of silver and

Dickie sold out his share of the business to his stepson, Mr. R. H. Cook,
another printer-graduate of the Plain-
dealer office. Coincident with this
change in the management was a readjustment of the office work, for Mr.
Barclay took the editorial chair. In
1901 Mr. Barclay bought out Mr.
Cook, and has since been editor, publisher and manager.
Under Mr. Barclay the Plaindealer's
growth has been remarkable in every

Editor and  Proprietor of the  Souris
With some men newspaper work is
a passion. They can no more help being newswriters than they can help
breathing. They were born that way
—predestined, foreordained and called
to the business just as truly as other
men are to the ministry. Prom the
time they are able to form ideas as to
their future they have elected their
life occupation. And, of course, as ls
the case ln all businesses, there are
many who write eldtorials and run
newspapers just as other men weigh
out tea and sugar, or lay bricks, or
preach sermons, or drive nails. But
there is a third class whose devotion
to their selected life work is every
whit as strong as those with an inborn passion therefor, but which is not
inherent, but the product of gradual
growth. The love of their work burns
with a steady intensity that is perhaps more effective than the more
spasmodic efforts of those of more ardent temperament. If less brilliant,
they are certainly more persistent,
and lt is no new saying that stlck-to-
it-iveness is- nowadays the element of
A type of this slowly developed,
but able, country editor is furnished
in the person of Mr. William J.
Barclay, proprietor of the Plain-
dealer, of Souris, Manitoba. Like
many another young man in Western
Canada, he nows owns the paper and
plant on which ho flrst "devilled." His
family were much averse to his going
into the newspaper business, and
young Barclay had his path towards
Journalism no track of roses, but full
of obstacles and opposition. But William could not content himself on a
farm, and had made up his mind as
to his future occupation. He carried
his point, too, and ln due time Justified the wisdom of his choice.
Mr. Barclay was at that time twenty-two years of age. He was Scotch
Dy both birth and parentage, his father, James Barclay, being managei
of a large cabinet aad chair works at
the little manufacturing town of
Belth. in Ayrshire. Tho future editor
was the third youngest of a family of
a dozen, and in hopes of bettering
their position the elder Barclay determined to emigrate. This was in
1880, at which time the editor-to-be
was a towheaded youngster of ten,
whose chief object ln life was to attend school as little as possible.
The family arrived in Winnipeg In
June, 1880. The future western metropolis of the Dominion wns then
a very different place to what lt ls
now. Instead of 100,000 people, it had
then somo 31000 or 4,000. It was an
overgrown village—wild, and woolly,
and western, with the thrill of the
forthcoming speculative boom already
in the air, with streets hub-deep with
the most tenacious and adhesive mud
ln the world, and a free, devil-may-
care familiarity and license the outstanding characteristic of its people.
To the elder Barclay, with Ideas of
community life formed after the strict
model of a God-fearing, church-going,
Sabbath-respecting littlo Ayrshire
town, all this was anthema mar-
anatha. Two weeks of Winnipeg was
enough—Indeed, too much—for him.
Like every Old Country Immigrant he
had not pictured, or prepared himself for, conditions so utterly different, and Instead, as most do, of modifying his attitude to the conditions—
which, in nearly every Instance, they
ultimately greatly prefer to those they
have left—he decided to return to the
Land o' Cakes. So, .vlth his numerous family, back they went to Scotland—all, that Is, except one of the
elder sons, who had made up his mind
to stay.
Two years afterwards a brother
and sister came out to this, the then
sole representative of the Barclay
family in Manitoba, and took up
farms in fhe Souris district. And, in
1883, Mr. Barclay, Sr„ brought out the
rest of the family, the future editor
among them, and all settled in the vicinity of Souris.
As before stated, Mr. Barclay manifested no fondness for farm life, and
resolutely set himself to work to improve his education, while following
the plow, with the object of leaving
agricultural pursuits for a more congenial occupation at the earliest opportunity. And, gradually, there grew
np within him the determination to
be a newspaper man. A goal towards
which to direct his efforts being thus
provided, the means of advanr'*g
thereto Mr. Barclay secured for himself. He got a Job as "devil" on the
Plaindealer, of which George Perry,
at one time on the Winnipeg Commercial and Grand Porks Plaindealer.
was the founder and editor. His advancement was as rapid as his occupation was congenial. In two years
he was in charge of the composing
room, and, in the same year (1894)
he formed a partnership with Mr. T.
Dickie—afterwards member of the
Manitoba Legislature—the latter taking charge of the editorial department, while Mr. Dickie looked after
the   mechanical   end.    In   189C   Mr.
the liberal support accorded It
throughout the district. It is, in tho
fullest sense nf tho term, n local newspaper. It covers its territory, and
serves up its nows items with both
taste and skill. Its editorial utterances are never extreme, nnd reflect,
tho views of tho fair-minded, moderate-thinking men. To municipal topics
It pays much attention, and its opinions thero anent deservedly carry
much weight In the locality. Tlie appreciation of the Souris merchants
for thoir local paper Is testified by
tho extensive advertising patronage
it boasts.
Mechanically, the Plaindealer is
among the very best of Western Canadian newspapers. This excellency Is
carried into the job department,
wliich is one of the best equipped
among tho smaller towns of the West,
and of which the quality of the output will bear comparison with that of
towns of many times its population.
Personally, there are few characteristics of Mr. Barclay that differentiate
him from the energetic and successful western business men. He Is married, and has two sons, his wife having been Miss Saunderson, a daughter of one of the most prominent, farmers in the Souris district. The Plain-
dealer editor is an enthusiastic Freemason, having been, for the paBt two
years, worshipful master of the local
lodffe. He ls. It should be moreover
noted, one of the best checker players ln Western Canada, holding the
cliamnlonshlp of Southwestern Manitoba for two years.

pays for the beer, leaves it on the

a word. A Frenchman will do thez
same, except that he swears while he
goes. An Englishman spils the beerl

By the time warm weather Is really
here, the embroidered Swiss will be well
known style. ' •
The greatest charm about the design
is that they are simple enough for even
the woman who knows nothing of embroidery. Already one sweet-girl-graduate-to-be Is at work upon her white
gown for June. She says, "I never
much as sewed on a shoe button for
myself—everybody knows Mamma
spoils me—but the dots make this work
so easy that I can't help_ doing It
Her gown is made of heavily
doited fabric upon which all
the work ls done. Tbe dots
are three-eighths of an Inch In diame
ter, the largest size ln fashion fpr dress
materia). "I really wanted a larger
dot tp make the work easier still, but
I knew I'd look as lf I were wearing
window curtains," she says. From this
slue the fashionable dots range all the
way down to the pln-hcad size.
The best quality, of which the graduation gown is being made, can be
bought for sixty-nine cents a yard.
Muslins with a flat dot cost only twenty-five cents »and are equally wide
(about thirty Inches) but the embroi
dtry is much handsomer when It has
the raised dot as a basis; a dozen
skeins of which can be bought for U
cents, ls used—it ls showy and Involves
much less work than the fine pllks
When you buy the silk, take a bit of
the muslin along to match by, for there
are as many whites as there are reds
or blues.
The gown Is made with a deep yoke
of plain muslin; eight bands of thj
daisy-embroidered Swiss start at the
neck and extend to the lower edge of
the yoke. The low collar, attached to
the gown, is a band of the same; so arc
the wrist bands which finish a deep
cuff. A similar band circles the 3kirt
near the knees, heading the pleats
which fall below.
From tbe white dot whleh forms the
centre of the flower the petals radiate,
each one consisting of a single chain
sllch about half an Inch long. When
closing the stitch, be sure to pass your
thread under the finished petal to the
centre instead of going directly to the
starting-point of the next petal, other
wise your silk will show through the
thin goods.
One skein of silk Is sufficient for collar and wristbands; allow half a dozen
if you are trimming the yoke besides:
about four more for one band at the
Your own Ingenuity will suggest dozens of variations for Ibis design. Filling the rfaisy centre with French knots
gres_ffy enhances Its beauty. The flowers may be made all whle; with white
petals and yellow centres; with yellow
petals and black centres in Imitation of
biack-eyed Susans; or ln any of the
new shades of blue, green, lavender,
pink or burnt scarlet. A stunning
costume Is embroidered ln daisies
whose petals are of shaded plnk-to-red
silk, the centres cf apple-green S'ranch
kr.ots- The parasol ls made of the
same Swiss over white silk and embroidered to match; the whole costume,
garnished with corresponding shaded
red and apple green ribbons and girdle.
In choosing colors, bear ln mind that
the pink shades are likely to survive
laundering better than blue, and blue
better than red. Black washes well
and the tiny daisies ln black are ex
ceedingly good style for a middle-aged
woman or for one In second mourn.
ing. Whatever articles you possess
that are embroider .4 ln mercerized
cotton, you should either wash yourself
or entrust to a first-class laundress,
who will know enough to Iroii the embroidered portion dry as soon as it is
wrung out. Guarantee labels attached
to the skeins of cotton are of little
value—the makers of the floss can never restore your, streaked waist,
Charming effects can be produced by
satjn stitch placed upon dots as a basis. All the trouble of padding is done
away with; the dots' themselves sarve
as padding and your task is simply to
cover them with a contrasting color
Bands in the diagonal effect are effective; all sorts of combinations will be
suggested as you work. This is anoth
er design suited to the front of a shirt
waist; you may alternate pink and
black dots, alternate turquoise and
black, all scarlet, and so on. It will
save you the trouble of experimenting
If you will bear In mind that the stitch
must be taken Iu the opposite direction
from that In which the stitch of th
factory-made dot Itself runs; otherwise
yeur thread will sink Into the padding.
Either mercerized cotton or silk may be
Countless patterns can be carried
out. For instance, consider the dots
as points of a diamond and outline the
diamond with feather-stitching, or
place a little circle of the stitching in
the centre of the diamond.
A combination of feather-stitch and
cross-stitch Is shown. Begin at the top
of the band to be embroidered, work
downward in zigzags, stopping at each
"station" along the way to put in a
large cross-stitch from edge to edge of
the dot. Starting again at the top,
put ln zigzags which complete the diamonds.
The best dressed women are wearing
the round boa and ruffle in preference
to the flat stole, although there are
still many examples of the latter to
choose from. It does not seem as lf
these will affect the popularity of the
embroidered chiffon scarf for evening
wear, which ls such a pretty and useful
accessory.   The long boas of accordlon-
pleated shaded chiffon are really most
effective, while SQme of the specimens
of thick ostrich feather of long fibre
are perfectly magnificent.
For young girls I think these are the
prettiest costumes Imaginable. The
new tailor gowns are noticeable for the
Invariable preference given to the bolero; never before has this pleasing little
companion of our toilettes been so popular. The bolero has a personality of
Its own, and, I think, will never quite
disappear from our wardrobes. At the
Concours Hlpplque the newest boleros
were cut very loose ln the back, forming almost a -sac coat, but shorter ln
the centre than fct^ the sides, whence
the movement takes a distinct down
ward line. In almost all cases a narrow
gilet ls visible, generally simulated, in
either satin or embroidered cloth. A
touch of bright color on black is almost
invariably used, and cerise Is much In
favor with black, grey and blege. The
shepherd's plaid costumes seem always
fashionable, and a favorite note here ls
green velvet, employed as 'Collar and
repeated ln a narrow line down the
fronts of the coat. Small flat buttons
are also much used as trimming, generally arranged tn groups on either
side of the gllet. Sleeves are very
simple In all coats and Jackets, except
for evening mantles, when the trimming
is elaborate and the lining Invariably
of the fussiest description, volants fall-
Ing over the hand being de regueur.
