Miss Tattle's head fell and a soft
flush broko through the pallor of her

••Because I was thinking of him,
Because I was terrified for him. 11*
had loft the house the morning be- ]
foro in a half-maddened condition
and had not como back to sleep ot
eat since. I did not know what a
man so outraged in every sacred feeling of Iovo aud honor might lis
tempted to do. I thought of suicide
I remembered the old house and how:
he had said, 'I don't believe her. I
don't believe she ovor did so coldblooded an act, or that uny suet
dreadful machinery is ill that houso.
I nover shall beliove it till 1 havo
seen and handled it myself, lt Is a
nightmare, Cora. We are insane.' I
thought of this, sirs, and when I
went into hor room, to chunge tin
place of tho little 11018 in rue -.-.-a.,
I went to his bureau drawer, not to
look for the pistol—I did not think
of that then—but to see if the keys
of the Mooro house wero still there.
1 know that they wero kopt in this
drawer, for I had been present in ths
room when thoy were brought in after tho wedding. I had also been
short-sighted enough to conclude that
if they were gone it was ho who had
taken them. They wore gone, and
that was why I flow immediately
from the house to ths old placo in
Waverley Avenuo. I was concerned
for Mr. Jeffrey! I feared to find him
there, demented or dead."
"But you had no key."
"No. Mr. Jeffrey had taken one of
them and my flster the other. But
tha lack of a key or even of a light
—for the missing candles were not
taken by mo*—could not keep me at
homo after I was once convinced that
he had gone to this dreadful house.
If I could not get in -I could at least
hammer at tho door or rouse ths
neighbors. Something must be done.
I did not think what; I merely flew."
"Did you know that the house hod
two keys?"
"Not then."
"But your sister did?"
"And finding the only key, as you
supposed, gone, you flew to the
Mooro house?"
"And now what else?"
"1 found the door unlocked."
"That was dono by Mrs.  Jeffrey?"
"Yes, but I did not think ot her
"And you went in?"
"Yes; it was all dark, but I felt
my way till I came to tho gilded pillars."
"Why did you go thero?"
"Because I felt—I knew—if he were
anywhere in that houso ho would be
"And why did you stop?"
Her voico rose above its usual
quiet pitch  in shrill  protest:
"You knowl you know! I heard a
pistol-shot from within, then a fall.
I don't remember anything else. Thev
say I wont wandering about town.
Perhaps I did; it is all a blank to
mc—everything is a blank till the policeman said that my sister was dead
and I learned for the first time that
the shot I had hoard in the Moore
bouse was not the sitrnal of .his
death, but hers. Had I been myself
when at that library door." sbe added, after a moment of silence, "I
would have rushed in at the sound of
thnt shot and have received my sister's dying breath."

"Coral" Tho cry was Irom Mr.
Jeffrey, uud seemed to ue quite involuntary, "in the weeks during
wni. h wo have been kept noiii speaking together 1 lia\o turned all those
events over in iny mind till 1 longed
for any respite, even that of Uio
grave. But In all my thinning 1 never attributed this motive to your
visit here.    Will you forgive me?"
Thero was u new tone in his voice,
a tone which no woman could hear
without emotion.
"You had otlier things to think
of," sho said, and her lips trembled.
Never havo I seen on tho human faco
a more beautiful expression than 1
saw on hers at that moment; nor do
I think Mr. Jeffrey had either, tolas he marked it his own regard softened almost to tenderness.
Tho major hud no timo for sentimentalities. Turning to Mr. Jeffrey,
ho said:

'TSin you remember your state ol

"And what did you seo in tho future?"
"Death. Doath for hor and death
for me! A crimo was on her soul and
sho must die, and if she, then myself. 1 kaow no other course. 1
could not summon tho police, point
out my brido of a fortnight and,
with tho declaration that she had
boen betrayed into killing a man,
coldly deliver hor up to justice.
Neither could I livo at hor side
knowing tho guilty secret which
parted us; or live anywhere in thu
world undor this sume consciousness.
Therefore, I meant to kill myself he-
fore .another sun rose. But sho was
more deeply stricken with a sense of
her own guilt than 1 realized. Wheu
1 returned homo for the pistol which
was to ond our common misery I
found that she had taken her punishment into her own hands. This

Tho district attorney and tho major looked unconvinced, and tho lat-

asked if she had any remark to mako
on the subject.
But she could only repeat Mr. Jeffrey's statement.
"Thoso are questions I can not answer either. 1 have said that I stopped at the library door, which means
that I sow nothing of what passed
Horo the major asked whero Mrs.
Jeffrey's loiter was to be found. It
was Mr. Joflrey who replied:
"Search in my room for a book
with au outside cover of paper still
on it. You will probably find it on
my table. The iuner cover is red.
Bring that book horo. Our secret is
hidden in it."
Durbin disappeared on this errand.
I followed him as far as the door,
but I did not think it necessary to
state that I had seen this book lying on the table when I paid my
second visit to Mr. Jeffrey's room in
company with tho coroner. Tho
thought that my hand had been

Drawing tho major aside, 1 whispered
a request, which led to a certain

the spruce but irate figure of Mr.

"When is this lo cease?" he curtly
demanded. "When are these early-

obsorvod; "pity that it con not be

I smiled and made a frosh start.
With my hand thrust again into my
pocket, I remarked, without eten so

"1 fear that you do some injustice

"I own to nothing," he siiapiied.
Then, realizing that denial in this
regard was fatal, he added more
genially: "What do you mean by

and tneir accompanying feature- with
which I onco whiled away an Idle

shouldn't I? It is only a proof of

conclusively that his strongest emotion had been curiosity rathor than

and turned to re-entof the house. Mr.
Mooro did not accompany me.    .
Tho major was standing in tho

"Tho man opposite knows what

"You are suro,"
"As positive as ono of my inexperience can bo. But, Major, I am

"Has ho acknowledged this?"
"Not at all."
"Thon what are your reasons for

"They aro many."
"Will you state them?"
"Gladly, if you will pardon the

"Very good. If Mr. Jeffrey's present explanations aro true, these deductions of yours are probably correct.  But Mr.  Moore's denial   has
been positive. I fear thot It will

At this moment Durbin renppoarcd.
As I heard his knock and turned to

He lod the book in his pocket.
Taking it out, he handed it to the

"Yrti won't find anything lt.no;

Tho major oponod tho- book; shoiik-
it,    looked   undor     tbe  cover,   found

The brazen-faced old optimlstl
In the far distant past a shepherd on
the hills of Chaldea upon placing his
staff In the ground observed that    it
cast a shadow, and, being by nature a
keen observer and something of a philosopher as well, he fell to pondering
over that hitherto unnoticed phenom
enon.   As he gazed upon the shadow
during tho idle moments which fall t-
the lot of an eastern shepherd, he perceived a movement in the shadow, and
the idea eventually occurred to him to
place stones  to mark Its  position  al
various Intervals of time.   In this man*
ner, it Is believed, the flrst rude sun-
d.al was constructed.

and drowsiness rang the curfew. When
the sundial was introduced into occidental lands it vvas regarded purely
from a utilitarian point of view. The
shepherd carved it out quaintly in ths
sun, and, turning philosopher by tho
very occupation, provided it with mottoes, "Horas non numero nisi serenas"
(I only count the hours of sunshine).
As time went on the decorative possibilities of the dial were appreciated,
and pedestals of excellent design were
constructed, and in no place do these
dials look so well as amid some old-
world garden surrounded by flowers.
Thoy add to the decorative effect, and
are always pleasant to look upon, notwithstanding the words of Richard Jeffries: "Let the shadow advance upon
the dial. I can watch lt with equanimity while it is there to be watched.
It is only when the shadow ls not there,

Sheep  Husbandry.
We do not believe a farmer should
have only one kind of stock ln his
farm, but have a few of nearly every
kind, so If the market is off on one kind
it will be better on some other.' The
sheep Industry was profitable last
year and will be again this year.
Although tho sheep are now wearing
their winter robes and are free from
ordinary cold, yet they will appreciate
a good shelter from tho winds and bad
weather aa much as any other kind of
stock, and perhaps no animal will appreciate kind treatment moro than h
sheep. The person who cannot control
a large degree of patlenoe will not
make a good sheep master. It is natural for a flock of sheep to follow their
shepherd, and this they will do If not
kicked about and are otherwise improperly treated. If kicked away so they
are scared when they come near you,
they cannot be controlled. Be kind.—

To Got a Stand of Clover.
Dr. I. A. Thayer, of Lawrence county,-Pa., has given the subject of growing clover more than ordinary consideration and has so far solved it that
he ls reasonably sure of a good stand
every year. He lays down lust four
rules as follows:
First.—Fill the soil witb humus.
Second.—Remove the stagnant water.
Third.—Apply lime to the soil where
Fourth.—Sow the seed on a good,
well prepared seed bed and give lt the
same chance you do any other good
From some years' practical experience I feel sure that this will bring us
success. It is unreasonable to expect
a good set of clover when we sow it
into a hard, unprepared seed bed already occupied with one, two or three
crops.—National Stockman.

Strawberry plants should be set as

In American Agriculturist Place the

feet apart and set plants one and a half
to two feet apart ln the row. Plants can
be set with a spade or dibble, oare being taken to have the crown of the
plant on a level with the surface of the
earth. If the soil ls inclined to bo dry
lt Ib a good plan to wet the roots while

Silage for Sheep.
As to ths relative e'ffocts of silage

without very decided results. At New
York Cornell station this feature was
studied more fully. As between mangel wurzels and corn silage, the lambs
sucking the ewes fed roots made
slightly better gains than those sucking ewes fed silage, although the silage
appeared to be a cheaper ration. As
between beets and corn silage, the
lambs of the ewos fed silage made
slightly the larger gain in weight. These
results show but a meagre difference ln

Plant Distribution.
It has been the practice of the Western Horticultural Society each spring
to offer to members a free choice of
plant premiums. The plants for these
distributions have been very carefully
chosen with a view to their desirability, as well as to their hardinesa and
suitability to our conditions. The
Directors believe that through the receiving of these many persons have
been encouraged to horticultural efforts along new lines, and tbat this
feature of the work of the society has
been a most valuable one.
It ls with pleasure the announcement of the plant distribution of this
spring is presented, as it not only affords a greater variety of choice than
has been offered in any of our former
announcements, but it also Includes a
number of very desirable plants that
have been thoroughly tested, but not
generally distributed throughout the
The following parcels are offered for
1905. Each member is entitled to one
parcel and those who are not now
members hut who wish to participate
ln the distribution may do so by sending the regular membership fee of

The payment of this sum will also entitle the sender to the other privileges
of membership.
(a) Twelve plants Ginnala Maple
(Acer tartaricum Ginnala.)
These plants are one year old and
about fl to 10 Inches high. The Ginnala Maple ls splendidly adapted for
hedging purposes or to provide shrubbery about lawns. It has been extensively grown both at Brandon and Indian Head Experimental Farms for the
past 14 years and found to be perfectly hardy. It ordinarily attains a
height of about 5 or 6 feet and may
easily be kept down to small hedge
size. The leaves are small and prettily cut or lobed. The wings of the
3eeds are early margined with bright
red, and in the autumn the leaves assume brilliant hues of red and scarlet.
This is undoubtedly one of the hardiest and most beautiful of shrubs, and
Is well adapted for general cultivation
throughout Manitoba and the Territories.

Foods and Food Products.
Immense    Value   .of    the    Electrical
Purification of Flour.
Prof. M. A. Gray, chemist, lectured
on 'Foods and Food Products,' In the
National History Society rooms at
Montreal.       ;-
The lecture" -was most exhaustive
and instructive, dealing -with the
growth of wheat, its constituents and
the electrical treatment of flour. Mr.
Gray remarked that but little could be
said concerning the i percentage of
nourishment contained ln the different grades of Northwestern hard
wheat, as it varies from .year to year.
Speaking of chemical expleirtment.
Mr. Gray pointed out what had been
done in this line in regard to wheat,
during the last ten or twelvo years,
in the different experimental stations
of the United States. It was but very
recently, however, that laboratories
had been esabltBhed in connection
with flour mills, but they have already
demonstrated their utility.
As to the purification of flour by
electricity, the speaker remarked that
lt ls about two years since this method
was adoped, and the development has
been wonderful. A beautiful silvery
whiteness Is produced by subjecting
flour to air which has been passed
through a flaming electrical discharge.
The flour has also, as a consequence,
better keeping qualities and commands a better price*. The Ogilvie
Flour Mills Company, he said, was the
only Arm In Canada, and ono of the
flrst in America, to make use of this
purifying and sterilizing process.

Editor  and  Proprietor of the Prince
Albert Advocate.
Many men engaged in newspaper
work in the Canadian West have a
larger circle of acquaintances, but few
have warmer friends than Mr. Andrew
Stewart, the editor and proprietor of
the Prince Albert Advocate. On a
casual knowledge, this may seem somewhat strange. At first glance Mr.
Stewart does not impress one as a particularly attractive personality. He
ls a better listener than talker. He
never obtrudes his views. There is
nothing histrionic or spectacular about
him—nothing that would appeal to the
ordinary observer as remarkably keen
or brilliant. He is not reserved or
taciturn but he certainly displays to
a less degree than the average western
newspaper man that hall-fellow-well-
met camaraderie, that exuberant good
fellowship which in its heartiness ts
apt to be undistlngulshing In its .friendliness, that characterizes the generality of western newspaper men. Mr.
Stewart lacks that Bohemian buoyancy
. which is the hall-mark of many of his
fellowworkers. He abjures the "wild
and woolly westerners." He is sound
and Bane, thoughtful and earnest. In
the northernmost frontier town of the
prairie section of the Dominion be has
stood for professional Ideals that are
conservatively progressive. To pick
up a copy of the Advocate—not merely
now, when Prince Albert is one of the
l most important cities of the West, but
for years past, when it was popularly
regarded as hanging on to the outside
i edge of civilization—none would ever
think, either by its makeup, by its editorial opinions, or by its news columns
that it was published in a town that
1 was the farthest Canadian limit of
agricultural effort. Indeed, if the imprint was not noticed, the general Impression would be that the Advocate
was a typical representative of that
class ot capable journals publshed ln
an old established, populous and prosperous community.
'    In this respect the Advocate is mere-
, ly the reflection of its owner. The
finest qualities   ot   older civilizations
> have in the person of Mr. Stewart beeu
transplanted to the new conditions of
, pioneer journalism. Without, losing
one whit of the endowment he brought
with him, he has adapted those quali-
1 ties to the environment of the West,
and with such conspicuous success
tbat it has passed into a proverb
among his fellowworkers. Mr. Stewart is the embodiment of quiet
strength and modest ability. He has
a judicial temperament which prevents
- him from taking any step without mature consideration, and saves him from
the errors Into which more impetuous
natures inevitably fall. For the same
reason he seldom has occasion to modify auy position once taken. It ls thus
no wonder that the personal and editorial opinions are treated with the
greatest respect by all who know
either him or his paper.
And It ls undeniable that both the
Advocate and Its editor have opinions,
and strong ones.    Neither the paper
, nor lis editor are spineless wobblers,
But neither ls offensive or dictatorial
ln the advocacy of the views professed.
Both recognize that there ls something
to be said on the other side, and treat
those who differ with them with the
respect due to Intelligent opponents.
In their moderation ls the secret of
the influence of both. Blind, unreasoning partylsm has no supporter ln
Mr. Stewart. He always appeals, not
to party allegiance or great party personages, but to sound and lntolllble
principles. He uses no rhetorical exaggerations, no catch phrases that obscure while pretending to enlighten.
Minard's Liniment Cures Dandruff.
All political and other issues are tested by the touchstone of ordinary,
everyday, common sense. One may
differ with Mr. Stewart's conclusions,
but none can deny him the respect

Mr. Stewart, like many another
Western editor, ls a graduate of the
case. Few printers in Canada have
had a more thorough or more varied
training. He is an Irishman by birth,
having been born in County Down
some thirty-five years ago. He came
to Canada with his parents in the year
of the great western boom, ln 1882,
The family located at Emerson, which
at that time was a typical boom town,
two dally papers being published there.
In one of these offices young Stewart
went as errand boy and devil. After
a short time he removed to Brandon,
still ln the same useful and lowly capacity. A year or two later he came
to Winnipeg, working here a summer,
and then, desiring to see somewhat
more of the world, and to secure a
wider knowledge of the business,
moved to St. Paul, where another year
was spent ln various offices. Another
year was spent in New York, principally in the employ of Bradstreet's.
But the call of the West came to tbe
young printer again, and he came back
to Manitoba with a determination to

farm. The life of a pioneer on a homestead, however, proved uncongenial.
The smell of printers' Ink called him
to the newspaper office as Irresistibly
as that of the sea does the sailor to
his ship. Mr. Stewart struck out for
the Western States working in the
principal offices in Helena, Anaconda,
Spokane, Tacoma, Seattle, and the
State printing office at Olympla. In
these he gained Invaluable experience
in every branch of th printing and publishing business.
It will thus be seen that few printers
ln the Canadian West have had a more
complete mechanical training and experience than Mr. Stewart.
Mr. Stewart went to Prince Albert
ln 1894 to take charge of he newly organized paper and after a few
months was so satisfied with its
prospects that he decided to purchase ho business, which he has
conducted ever since. From a very
modest beginning It has grown till it
is now an eight page, all home print
paper, taking natural rank as one of
the four or five best papers ln the Territories. The mechanical equipment
of the office is one of the best in the
West, including a fine two-revolution
press, gordon jobbers, monoline, cutters, stitchers, &c, ample to keep pace
with the rapid growth of one of the
most progressive cities of Western
Canada. Typographically, editorially
and reportorlally, the Advocato is a
paper of which any place might well
be proud. In this respect the city on
the Saskatchewan has much for which
to thank Mr. Stewart, who, with unflagging energy, enterprise and wisdom,
has helped It grow from an outpost
trading village to its present status,
and whose efforts in the future will
not be the least of the factors to Its
continued progress. Happy Indeed is
that Western town,—the supreme need
Not exactly sick—but not feeling
quite well. That's the spring feeling.
The reason—close confinement indoors
during the winter months, breathing
the impure air of badly ventilated
houses, offices and workshops. The
trouble may manifest itself in a variable appetite, little pimples or eruptions
of the skin, a feeling of weariness, and
perhaps an occasional headache, or a
twinge of neuralgia or rheumatism.
Perhaps you think the trouble will
pass away—but it won't unless you
drive it out of the system by putting
the blood right with a health-giving

Interesting Volume Descriptive of Ceylon and Its Industries.
P. C. Larkln, of the Salada Tea Co.
has sent the Toronto World a copy of
interesting volume, descriptive of Ceylon and Its greater Industries. "Golden Tips," so the book ls entitled, ls the
work of Henry W. Cave, M.A.,F.R.G.S„
a member of the Itoyal Asiatic society
and himself a succesful Ceylon merchant, and ls profusely and beautifully
illustrated from photographs by the
author. It is one of quite a number of
volumes on Ceylon, and its natural
features and resources, Issued by Mr.
Cave, who has done excellent service
in bringing this gem of the southern
seas before the notice of the English-
speaking public.

with the melodious but somewhat misleading lin .'S ln   Heber's well-known
missionary ,_ymu:
What tlio "the spicy breezes
Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle,
Where every prospect pleases.
And only man is vile.
But we li am from Mr. Cave that the
truth of the flrst three lines ls not continued in the fourth. The native Singhalese are certainly not vile in their
ordinary occupation of that brief but
significant adjective. Indeed, Mr. Cave
gives us a very different idea of the
perfection of Ceylon life.
"They need uo poor laws, nor have
they any. Poverty ls relieved by the
natural benevolence of the people.
The we.utby Singhalese are especially
kind to the poor; and many of them
have fixed days of the week upon
which they distribute rice to all the
aged and infirm of their district. The
solidarity of the family ls I believe,
even stronger among them than Europeans; the weakest are the most cared
for; the rich help their poorer relations, and never disown them; the
poor assist the poorer amongst their
own relatives and friends, so that
there Is no dread of old-age poverty.
In these particulars of freedom from
care and squalid misery I believe that
the Singhalese are now the happiest
of His Majesty's subjects in any part
of the world."
A people of whom these things can
be said may not be Christian or even
civilized in the western meaning of
civilization, but they are certainly not
Space will not permit us to linger
over the wonderful beauty of Ceylon
scenery, and the equally marvelous fertility of its soil. It ls a miniature continent, in which the traveler can pass
through every variety of climate, over
mountain, forest and plain and the
loveliest and most exquisite landscapes. The tea estates, we ldarn, are
upwards of a_ thousand in number,
varying In size "from 100 to 1000 acres
each, and comprising a total of 370,-
000 acreg,* and are divided into about
sixty districts. They are situated for
the most part in the mountainous central province of the island, and vary ln
elevation above the sea level from 100
to 7000 feet There are, however,
some extensive estates in the lowlands.
As the native Singhalese were too
well satisfied with their lot, it-became
necessary to import laborers from Southern India. The gangs are each in
charge of a company or taskmaster,
and above them is the conductor, who

Ceylon tea, says:
Everything, it will be observed, is
done to avoid handling the tea. Indeed, from the bush to tbe tea table
such methods of pure cleanliness are
observed as scarcely any other food
manufacture can claim, and especially do these methods of Ceylon tea
manufacture stand in contrast to
those of China, where the primitive
operations employed are such that the
stomach would rebel against a detailed description. I am convinced that
lf the public generally did but realize
this difference between Ceylon tea
and that ot some other countries the
demand for the Ceylon article would
Increase quite beyond the capacity of
the country to supply It.
. These admirable methods, coupled
with the natural fitness of the soil and
climate, no doubt account for the unrivaled popularity of Ceylon tea, and
it ls a matter of pride that the fragrant leaf from which comes "the cup

now bo so largely produced ln one of

Lower Windsor, Carleton Co., N. B„
April 10—(Special).—"Yes, I have good
health over since I used Dodd's Kidney PIUb" The speaker was Mr. T.
H. Belyea, postmaster here, and one
of the most highly respected men In
this part of the country. Asked to
give his experience with the great Canadian Kidney Remedy Mr. Belyea continued :
"I had been troubled with my kidneys for a number of years. I tried
several kinds of plasters and other
kinds of medicines, but did not seem
lo get any lasting benefit. Hearing
Dodd's Kidney Pills so highly recommended I decided to try them and they
made a complete cure of me. That ls
two years ago now nnd as I said before
I have had good health ever since I
used Dodd's Kidney Pills."
Dodd's Kidney Pills cure once and
for all. There Is no stage or form of
Kidney Disease that they do not cure
completely and permanently.
There was a matinee benefit at the
Manhattan Theatre for a cat and dog
hospital a few days ago. Before the
doorkeeper was ready to tako tickets a
dozen women had gathered ln the theatre. He went among them getting
their tickets. One woman had no ticket, and she told him so. I keep my
dogs and cats at this hospital and I
ought to be allowed to see this show
for nothing," said she. "Madame, lf
you don't either leave or go to the box
ofHce and purchase a ticket I'll-be In
the hospital," said the doorkeeper.
"They wouldn't have you here," retorted the woman, making for the
door. "It's a cat and dog hospital.
They won't take monkeys."

Henry Harland, the novelist, reproached a friend for the violence of
his criticism of a book he was reading.
He said that a critical attack succeeded best lf it was delivered gently.
Then, to ilustrate his point, he told
about an old Scottish buttler, whose
master had married un Italian girl of
great fortune and little charm. Some
one, after the wedding, asked the Scot
what he thought of the bride. "She's
very rich?" the questioner began. "Ah,
I've so heard," said the old man. "And
agreeable" "They say so." "Well,
what's your private opinion of her,
Thomas?". "Weel," Bald the old man,
with a gentle chuckle, "Ah think she's
a recht bonny wench, as weel as bein'
rich an' clever; but lf beauty's a sin,
she won't have that to answer for."
