sort. Nor did the floor where it hud

Inquiring eye. Nothing was to bo
seen there but the marks loft by the
• removal of Its base from tho bluck-
cned  boards.
Tiisgustod with myself, If not With
this object of my present disappointment, I left that. porPion of tbe room
in wliich It stood and crossed to
whero 1 had found tho little tabid on
thc.nl^ht of Mrs. Jeffrey's Joalh. It
Was lio longer {hero. It had been
set back against the wall where it
properly belonged, and the cundula-
brum removed. Nor was the kitchen
chair any longvr to he seen near llie
book shelves. This fact, smull as il
wan. caused mo an instant of chagrin... I had"'Mended to look again
at the book which I hnd examined
with such unsatisfactory result! tho
lovol with tho othoi-B,- hut 1 romom-
bored Its title, and, hud the menus
of.rea-liii-g it been at hand, 1 should
certainly havo stolen another peep at
it.
Upstairs I found the same signs of
police inteiferiiiico.O Tlio shutter hud
lioen fastened in the southwest room,
and tho bouquet and wrap taken
away from tho bed. .The landker-
chlof, also, was missing from Ihe
mantel where I hail loft it, and when
I opened the closet door, lt wus to
find trie flo&r buro und tlio second
candelabrum and candle removed.
"All gone," thought I; "each and
overy clue."
But I was mfstnkon. In another
moment I came upon tho minute filings I hnd before observed scattered
over a small stand. Concluding
from this that they had been passed
over by Durbin and his associates as
valuolcss, I swept tbem, together
with tlm dust iii whleh they lay. Into on old envelops I happily (ound In
my pockot. Thon I crossed to the
mantel and mado a close Inspection
of Its now tunply shelf. The scratches-which I had madu thoro wi re visible, enough, but tho impressions fur
which they stood bad vanished ln
the handling which everything in the
houso had undergone. Hegarding
with great thankfulness tlio result of
my own foresight, I mnde hasio to
leave the room. I then proceeded to
tako my first stops ln thu ticklish experiment by which I hoped lo detor-
inlne wholher Uncle David had bad
any Bharo. in tho fatal business which
had rendered tho two rooms I had
Just visited so memorable.
First, satisfying myself by a peep
through the front drawing-room window that ho was positively at Watch
behind the vinos, 1 went directly to
the kitchen, procured a chair and
carried lt into tho library, whore I
put lt to a use that, to an onlooker's eye, would have appeared vory
pcouliar. rianting lt squarely on
tho hearthstone,—not without some
secret perturbation as to what tbo
results might be to myself,—I mounted lt and took down tho engraving
which I have already describe 1 as
hanging over this mantelpiece.
Sotting it on end against one of
the Jambs of the fireplace, I mounted
tho chulr once, moro and carefully
sifted over the high shelf the con-
touts of-a littlo packuge which 1 hud
brought with me for this purpose
Then, loavlng the chuir where it
w.'i.'i.l betook myself out of the front
door, ostentatiously stopping to
lock It and to put. the key in my
pocKet.

"Behind tt!" he ropoated. "There
ls nothing behind it."
I laughed, shrugged my shoulders,
and backed slowly toward tho door.
"Of course, you should kno.v," I
retorted, with somo condescension.
Thon, as if struck by a sudd.n remembrance: "Oh, by tho way, have
you been told that thero is a window on that lower floor which does
not stay fastened? I speak of lt
that you may havo it repaired as
soon as the police vacate. It's the
lost ono in the hall leading to the
nogro quartors. If you shako lt hard
enough, the catch falls back and any
one can raiso it evun from the outside." ;
"I will seo to It," ho replied, dropping his eyes, possibly to hide their
curious twinklo. "But what do you
mean about finding something ln the
wall behind that old picture? I've
never henrd—"
But though he spoke quickly and
shouted tho last words after ice at
the top of his voice, I was by this
time too far away to respond save
by a dubious smile, and a semi-patronizing wave of the hand. Not until .1 was nearly out of earshot did I
venture to shout back tho following
words:
"I'll bo back—In an hour. If anything happens—if tho boys annoy

When I arrived in front again It
was quito dark, ' So was the house;
but there wus light in the library. I
felt assured that. I should find Uncle
Dat Id there, nnd I did. When, after
a noisel >ss entrance and n careful advance through the hall, I threw op-
i.u the door, beyond tho glided pil-
l.iis, tt was to soo the tall figure of
this old man mounted upon the
il.air I had left there, peering up at
the nail from which I had so lately
lifted the picture. Hu started as 1
presented myself and almost fell
from tho chair. But tho careless
laugh I uttered assured him of the
little importance I placed upon this
evidence of his during and unappeas-
oblo curiosity, and he confronted me
with an enviable air of dignity;
whereupon 1  managed to say:
"Heal y, Mr, Mooro, I'm glad to
see _ou here. It is quito natural for
you to wish to learn by any means
in your power What that picture concealed. I come back, because 1 suddenly remembered that 1 hud forgotten to rchang it."
Involuiitnii'y he glanced aguln at
the wall overhead, which was as
bare as his hand, save for the nail
he hud already exaiiiini'd.

with big fist. "What did you Imagine that you had found'""
I smiled, shrugged my shoulders In
tan'a'l.iiig repetition of my former
action upon a liko occasion and then
answered brusquely:
"II did not come bnck to betray police secrets, but to restore this picture to ita placo. Or perhaps you
prefer to hnve it down rather thon
up?   It isn't much of nn ornament."
Ho Scrutinized RH) darkly from over
bis shoulder, a wury gleam showing
H self in his shrewd old eyes; and the
Idea crossed mo tbnt the moment
might possess more significance than
OPI enrol. l!ut 1 did not slop back-
word, nor give evidence ln any way
that I had even thought of dnnger.
I simply lultl my hand on the picture and looked up at htm for orders.
Ilo promptly signified that ho wished It hung, adding as I hesitated
these words: "Thb pictures ln this
house nro supposed lo stay on the
walls whom fhny belong. Thero Is a
traditional supersiltlun against removing ili-iii."
I Immediately bflnd tho print from
the floor. No doubt he had me at a
disadvantage If evil was In hie
heart, and my position on tho hearth
wns as dangerous as previous events
had proved It to be, But lt would
not do to show the whito fcathor at
a moment when his fato, If not my
own,, hung in tho balance; so motioning him to step down, I put foot
on the chnlr and raised the picture
oloft to hnng It. As I did so, he
moved over to the hugo settle of his
ancestors, ond, crossing his arms over its bock, surveyed me with a smile
1 rolher Imagined then sow.
Suddenly, as I strained to put the
cord over tho noil ho called out:
"Look ont! you'll fall."
If ho hod Intended to givo mo a
start in payment for my previous rebuff ho did not succeed; for my
nerves hod grown steady and my
nrm firm at the glimpse I had
caught of tbo shelf Ik'Iow mo. Tho
fine brown powder I had scattered
there hod been displaced In flvo distinct S|Kils, nnd not by my fingers.
1 hnd preferred to risk tho loss of
my balance, rather than rest my
bnnd on the shelf, but ho had taken
no such precaution. Tho clue I so
anxiously desired and for which I
had bo recklessly worked, was obtained.
But when half an how later I
found an opportunity of measuring
these mark's and comparing them
with those upstairs, I did not enjoy
tie full triumph I bad promised mv*
seir. For tho two Impressions utterly failed to coincido, thus proving
that whoever the person was who
mxd  been    Iii  this  houso with     Mrs.
Jeffrey on the evening sho die, it was
not her unclo David.
CHAPTER VIII.
Lot me repeat. The person who
had left the marks of his presence in
the upper chumber of tho Mooro
house was not the man popularly
known as Uncle David. Who, then,
had it been? But one namo suggested itself to me,—Mr. Jeffrey.
It was not so ensy for me to reach
this man as it had been for me Jo
reach his singular ond unimaginative
uncle. In the first placo, his door
had been clos.-d to every one since
his wlfo's death. Neither friends nor
Btrangers could gain admittance
there unless they Caitle vested with
authority from the coroner. And
thit, even if I could manage to ob-
tnin It, would not answer In my
cuse. What I hod to say and do
would bettor follow a cbanco en-
countor. But no chance encounter
with this gentleman swuned likely to
fall to my lot, and finully 1 swallowed my pride ood asked another favor
of the lieutenant. Would bo see thut
I was given an opportunity for currying somo message, or of doing
somo oriand which would lead to my
having on interview with Mr. Juf-
tit-y i     ,,  .»-■   .._.--.,  -  -.       . ...   '
promise that my. curiosity should
stop at this point and that I would
cease to make a nuisance of myself.
I think he suspected mo by this
time; but hu made no remark; and In
a day or so I was summoned tp carry a note to tlie house In K Street.
Mrs. Jeffrey's funeral hod taken
place tho day before and the houso
looked deserted. But my summons
speedily brought a neut-looklng, but
very nervous moid to tho door,
whose eyes took on an unmistakable
expression of resistance whon I announced, my errand and asked to see
Mr. JeiTrey. The expression would
not have struck mo as peculiar if
she had raised any objection to the
tntervlow I had solicited. But she
Sid not. Her fear and antipathy,
consequently, sprang from some otber source than her Interest In the
man most threatened by my visit.
Was lt—could it be, on her own account? Recalling what I had hoard
whispered about the station concerning a maid of tho Jeffreys who always seemed on the point of saying
something which never really left lier
lips, I stopped hor as sho was about
to slip upstairs and quietly asked:
"Are you Loretta?"
Tho way she turned, tho way sh*
looked at ma as she gave mo a short
affirmative, and then quickly proceeded on hor way, convinced me
that my colloagues wore right as to
her being a woman who had some
cause for dreading police interference.
I instantly made up my mind that
hero was a mine to be worked and
that I knew just tho demure little
soul bost equipped to act tho part of
miner.
In a moment sho came bock, and 1
had a chance to note ngoin her. pretty but expressionless features, among
which tho restless eyes alone bo-
spoke character or decision,
"Mr. Jof-rcy ls In "the back room
upslairE," sho announced. "He says
for you to come up."
"is It the rooni Mrs. Jeffrey used
to occupy?" I nsked with open curiosity,  as I passed her.
An Involuntnry shudder provod
that she was not without fooling. So
did tho quick disclaimer:
"No, no! Those rooms are closed
He occupies the one Miss Tuttle had
before she went away."
"Oh, then, Miss Tuttle Is gone?"
Iioretta'disdained to answer. She
had already said enough to cause
her to bito hor lip as she disappeared down the basement stair. Decidedly the boya were, right. An uneasy
feeling followed any conversation
with this girl. Yet, while there was
slyness in hor manner, there was a
certain frank honesty visible in It
tbo, which caused mo to think thai
if she could over be mode to speak,
her evidence could be relied on.'
Mr. Jeffrey was sitting with his
beck to the door when I entered, but
V'H«a' rio" IxtleVtS&o'u of "his remembering mo as one of the men who hud
stood about that night in the Moore
houso, and I was not disappointed.
"To hlin I was merely a messenger, or
common policeman; and he consequently paid mo no attention, whilo
I bestowed upon him the most concentrated scrutiny ol my whole life.
Till now I had soon him only in half
lights, or under circumstances precluding my getting a very accurate
Idea of him as a man antl a gentleman. Now he sat with the broad
dnylight on his face, and I bad every
opportunity for noting both his features and expression. Ho was. of a
distinguished typo; but the cloud enshrouding blm was aa heavy as any
1 had ever seen darkening about a
man of his position and character,
Ills manner, fettered though It wus
by gloomy thoughts, was not Just
tho manner I hud expected to encounter.
Ho had a Inrgo, clear eye, but th*
veil which hid the bi'i#itn«si of his
regard was misty with suspicion, nol
with tears. He appeared to shrink
from observation, ond shifted uneasily as long as I stood ln front of
him, though ho snld nothing and did
not lift his eyes from the letter ho
was perusing till he hoard me step
back to tho door I hod ;iurpos,lyi lef l
open ond softly closo it. Then ho
glanced up, with a keon, if not
alarmed look, which Boomed an exaggerated ono for that occasion, —
that is, if ho had no socrut to keep.
"Do you suffer so from drafts?" h«
ns'ted, rising in a way which ln Itself was a dismissal.
I  smiled  an  aniUBcd    denial,    then
with the simple directness 1 thought i
most likely to win mo liis confidonce,
entered straight upon my businoss In
these plain words:
"Pardon me, Mr. Jcflroy, I have
something to say which is not exactly fittod for tho ears of servants."
Then, as he pushed his chair suddenly hack, I added roassurodly. "It
Is not a police matter, sir, but an
entirely personal one. It may strike
you as important, and it may not.
Mr. Jeffrey, I wns the man who
made the unhappy dlsrovery in the
Moo'c man.'lo', whiih has plunged
this  house Inlo mourning."
This announcement startled hiin
and produced a visible change in his
manner. His eyes flew llrst to ono
door and then to nnother, as If It
were ho who feared intrusion now.
"I beg your pardon lor speaking on
so puliifid a topic," I went on, as
soon ua I saw he wus ready to list-
on to mo, "My excuse Is that I came
upon a littlo thing that fiamo night
which  I     hove  not  tliQUght  of suffi
cient Importance to mention to any
one else, but which it may interest

standing, I took out on envelope
from niy pocket, and, shaking it
gently to and  fro,  remarked:
"In an upper room of the Moore
houso—you remember the southwest
chamber,  sir?"
Ah! didn't he! There was no misdoubting tho quick emotion— the
shrinking and the alarm with which
ho beard this room mentioned.
"Tt. was in that room that 1 found
these." ...   j
Tipping up tho envelupe, 1 scattered over the fa<e of the blotter a few
of the glistening particles I liud collected from the place mentioned.
Ho bent over them, astonished.
Then, os was naturul, brushed tbem
together in a heap with thu tips ol
his lingers, and leaned lo look ugain.
Just ns I brei-Uied a heavy sigh
which scattered them  fur and wide.
In-tinatlvely. hu withdrew his
hand, whereupon I Olllbraced tho opportunity of turning Ihe blotter over, uttering meanwhile the most profuse apologies. Then, as if anxious

well, his finger-tips, white with tha
chalk he had unconsciously.jiuiiillcd,
touched tne blue -urfuce of the blotter now lying uppermost und left
their marks there.
I could have shouted in my elation
at the success of this risl y munoeu-
ver, but managed to suppress my
emotion and to stand quite still
whilo ho took a good look at the tilings. They secnud lo huve great
and unusual interest for him and lt ,
Wus wilh no, ordinary emotion that,
he finally asked:
"What do you make out of these,
and why do you bring tbem here?"
My answer wus written under his
hand; but this, it was far from my
policy to impart. So putting on my
friendliest uir, I returned, with suitable respect:
"I don't know what to make of
them. They look liko gold; but thut
is for you to decide. Do you want
them, sir?"
*'No," ho replied storting erect and
withdrawing his hand from tbo blot-
tor. "It's but. a trifle,, not worth
our attention. But I thank you just

And again his manner became a
plain dismi sal.

"Certainly not," I boldly ventured;

His eyes, which were fixed on mine,
flashed, gild liis bonds closed convulsively.

Cornet  Ciineer..
Several cases of what ls called "cot-
set cnucer" nre reported. It occurs In
women who are obliged to use In-
cessnntly the right arm In their Wbf-
the whole day long, the growth appearing at the site of the greatest trie-,
tlon—i. e., Just above tbe upper edge of
tbe corset. Oue woman so affected
was employed in a fut factory, ber
work beiug to scrape the fur of rabbits' skins with a blunt knife so as to
make nil the hairs of n uniform length.
Another womnu had been employed ln
a laundry, Ironing clothes.
Cancer would, not odcur in these
cases unless there wns a predisposition
to it, yet lt might be well for women
who are obliged to use their nrms In
a constant to and fro movement at
their work not to wear a corset when
so employed.—Newark News.

Do not be satisfied with substitutes

Family Flra Drill.
A family fire drill occasionally, where
there are little children, ls an excellent
plan. Provide them wltb a wool dressing gown and slippers to keep near the
bed and teach them at the first alarm
of fire to slip them on, throw a blanket
or rug over head and shoulders, and lf
possible tie a wet handkerchief, preferably silk, over their mouths and then
take the most direct way out. Teach
them how to put out a small fire with
rugs or blankets, stopping direct drafts
by closing doors or' windows, aud,
above all, to keep cool and collected.
A Shampoo For Dry Scalp.
A splendid tonic shampoo for a dry
scalp can be made as follows: Take two
ounces of white castile soap, one-half
an ounce of p..tasslum carbonate, eight
ounces of alcoli.-l, two ounces of tincture of qulllnljo, twenty drops of oil of
lnvender nnd elgut ounces of water.
Dissolve ln the water the potassium
enrbonnte and soap, then add the other
ingredients. Bub well Into the roots
of the hnlr nnd then rinse well ln several waters. Dry if possible ln the
sun, never ln frout of a fire, as this
will make the hair brittle.

A southern housekeeper celebrated

potatoes are sliced as thin as shavings
they nre thrown Into cold water until

takes out nil the Btarch. The cold water should be turned on again quickly
and left until the slices aro crisp. Wipe

less likelihood of their, backs being

I'he covers should be opened one at

table upon which the book Is resting;
then gradually all the leaves, a few
at the back and a few at the front of
the book, should be laid upon the
covers. The book will then be in

We see much ln our periodicals nowadays about beautifying our back

been relegated ? Surely the little fellow's rights nre to be respected, but
we see no indications in the numerous
photographs of ornamental back yards
of a vine covered workshop where the
saw, the hatchet nnd bits of wood,
etc., so denr to a boy's heart, are to be
found. The boys should have a portion
screened from the rest of the garden
by a high trellis or fence of chicken
wire, which would be n thing of beauty when covered with blossoming
vines; then they will not be driven so
often to And amusement on tbe streets.

farm crops of the United States in
1904:
Crops. Acreage. Production.

It has been found impracticable to
make a definite estimate of the amount
of wheat lit for milling, owing to tho
difficulty of drawing a hard and fast
line between the mlllable and the
non-millable. Reports, however, have
been made on the average weight of
wheat per bushel in the three prln
clpal spring wheat states, and such
average haB been found to be 52

unheeded, and replied with dignity', if
but little heart:,-
"When a mari has passed his seventh decade he is not apt to bo so
patient with delay as when bo has a
prospect of many years beforo blm. I
am anxious to enter my own house,
yos; I have much to do thoro:"
I came vory neur asking bim what,
but feared to scorn too familial', in
case ho was tho cold but upright
man ho would fain appear, and too
interested and Inquiring if ho wore
tho whlted scpulcber I secretly considered him. So with a nod a trillo

marking:
"I'll see you again after taking a
turn through the house. If 1 discover
anything—ghost marks or human
marks which might be of Interest to
you^-I'll lot^you know."
Something like a growl answered
mar- Dut whether lt came from
master or dog, I did not stop to inquire. I had serious work boforo mo;
vory serious, considering tbat It was
to'tbo done on my own responsibility
an8 without tho knowledge of my
superiors. But I was sustained by
th* thought that no whisper of mur-
&ef- hod as yot been hoard abroad or
at'beadquartors, and that consequently I was Interfering ln no great
caefe; merely trying to formulate one.
It was necessary, for the success of
mj* plan, that somo timo should
elapse before I reapprooehed Mr.
Moore. Ijthercfore kopt my word to
him and»atl»flo0 my own curiosity
bx .taking' a fresh tour tlirough the
houso. Naturally, in doing tnis, I
visited the library. Here all was
daftc. The faint twilight still illuminating tho streets failed to penetrate bore. ■ I was obliged to light
my lantern.
My __r_|t;g!anco was toward the fire,
plpce? * "Venturesome hands had been
tbire. Not only, had the 'fender boon
dwiwn out and the grate sot aside,
birt the huge settle had been wrench-
ed' freo Irom the mantel and dragged
liWP the center of fho room. Rathor
pleased at_tMs change,  for, with all
mj"' apparent bravado I did not enjoy too closo a proximity to the
crtjol hearthstone, I stopped lo give
this sottlo a thorough investigation.
This result was disappointing. To
alt appearance—and I did not spare
ltj|the experiment of ihuny a thump
ana knock—it was a perfectly innocuous piece of furniture, clumsy of
build, but solid and absolutely devoid of anything that could explain
thi tragedies which had occurred so
near lt. I oven sat down on its
mu.sty old cushion and shut m.v
eyos, but was'unrew arded by alarming visions, or disturbance of nny
sort. Nor did the floor where It bud
stpod yield any better results t.o the
inquiring eye. Nothing was to bo
seen there but the marks loft by the
■ repioval of Us base from tho blackened boards.
Tiisgiifltod with myself, if not Willi
t^ls object of my present disappointment, I left that portion of the room
in. which it stood nnd cro.ssi-d to
where 1 had found tho little table on
the. nijjflit. of Mrs. Jeffrey's Jeuib. It
was do longer" "{"hero. It hud been
set back against the wall whero it
properly belonged, and the candelabrum removed. Nor was the kitchen
chair any longer to he seen near I be
book shelves. This fuct, small as il
wasj- caused roe au instant of chug
rin. I had uitonded to look again
at the book which I had examined
with such unsatisfactory results the
lovol with the otbors; but. 1 remembered Its'title, and, had the means
of.reacfiiti-' it been at hund, 1 should
certainly havo stolen another peep at
Upstairs I found the same signs of
polico interference. 6 Tho shutter hud
boon fastened in the southwest room,
and tho bouquot nnd wrap taken
nway from tho bed. .Tbo handkerchief, also, was ' missing from tho
mantel whero I had loft it, and when
I openod thp closot door. It wus to
find tho floftr baro dnd the second
candelabrum and candle removed.
"All gone,"'thought I; "each and
every clue."
But I was mlstakon. In another
moment I camo upon tho minute filings I hnd before observed scattered
over a small stand. Concluding
from this that thoy had boon passed
over by Durbin and his associates us
valuolcss, I swopt them, together
with the dust in which tboy luy, Into an old envelope I happily found In
my pocket. Thon I crossed to tho
mantel and mndo a closo Inspection
of its now emply shelf. The scratches-which I had mado there were vls-
lblo enough, but tho iniprossiuns for
which they atood hnd vanished ln
tho handling which everything in tlio
house had undorgono. I'ognrding
with great thankfulness tlio result of
my own foresight, I made hasto to
leave tho room. I then proceeded to
take my first stops in tho ticklish experiment by which I hoped lo determine whother Undo David bad bad
any share in tho fatal business which
had rendorod tho two room* I had
Just visited so memorable.
First, satisfying myself by a peep
tlirough the front drawing-room window that he was positively at watch
behind the vines, 1 went directly to
the kitchen, procurod a chair and
carried It into tho library, whore I
put lt to a uso that, to an onlook-
or's eye, would havo appeared very
peouliar. Planting lt squarely on
tho hoorthstone,—not without some
Secpot perturbation as to what the
results might be to myself,—I mounted It and took down tho engraving
which I have already described as
hanging over this mantelpiece.
Sotting it on end ugaiiiHt one of
th. Jambs of the fireplace, I mounted
tho cbulr once moro und carefully
Sifted over thu high shelf the con-
touts of-n littlo package which 1 hud
brought with mo for this purpose.
Then, leaving tlie chair where it
Waji,I botook myself out of the front
door, ostentatiously stopping to
lHck It and to put tlio key in m.v
pocket.
Crossing Immediately to Mr.
Mooje'c side qf. tlio -trmt. I enratin-
i-neu rum as JT nad expocteiT tf) do,
at bis own gateway.
"Well, what now?" he inquired,
with tho same exaggerated courtesy
I had noticed in hiin on a previous
occasion. "Vou have tho air of a
man bringing news, Has anything
fresh happened In the old houso?"'
1 assumed a frankness which teemed to impose on him.
"Ho you know," I scntontiously Informed blm, "1 have a wonderful interest in that old hearthstone; or
ratber ln tho seemingly innocent engraving hanging over it, of Benjamin
Franklin at the Court of France. I
tell you frankly that I had no Idea
of what would bo found behind the
picture."

was just whut I bad calculated to
do.
"Behind It!" he ropoatod. "There
is nothing behind  it."
I laughed, shrugged my shoulders,
and  backed slowly  toward the door.
"Of coui'i'O. you should kno.v," I
retorted, with soma condescension.
Thon, as if struck by a sudd.n remembrance: "Oh, by tho way, have
you been told that there ls a window on that lower floor which doos
not stay fastened? I speak .of it
that you may have it repaired as
Boon as the pollco vacate. It's the
last one In the hall leading to the
nogro quarters. If you shako It bard
enough, the catch fails back and any
one can raiso it evon from the outside."
"I will see to it," ho ropliod, dropping his eyes, possibly to hide'their
Curious twinklo, "But what do you
mean about finding something ln the
wall behind that old picture? I've
never hoard—"
But though he spoke quickly and
shouted the last words after ice at
tho top of his voice, I was b.v thi*
time too far away lo respond save
by a dubious smllo, and a scml-pat-
ronlzlng wave of the hand. Not until .1 was nearly out of earshot did I
vwnturo to shout back the fol'.uwing
Wards:
"I'll be back—In an hour. If anything happens—if the boys annoy
you, or any one attempts to entor
the old house, telephone to th. station or summon the officer at the
corner. I don't believe any harm
will como from loavlng the place to
itself for a while." Then I walked
around the h'ock.
When I arrived in front again lt
was quito dark. So wus the houso;
but there was light in the library. I
felt assured that 1 should find Uncle
David there, and I did. When, after
a nolsel >ss entrance and a careful advance through tho hall, I threw op-
i.n the door beyond tlio gilded pil-
lii s, it wan lo soe the-tall figure of
this old man mounted upon the
il.air I had left tbote, peering up at
the nail from which I bad so lately
lifted tho picture. Ho started as 1
presented myself and almost fell
from tlio chair. But tho careless
laue.h I uttered assured him of the
.little importance I pluced upon this
evidence of his during and unappeasable curiosity, and lie confronted nie
with an enviable air of dignity;
whoreupori I managed to say:
"1'tal y, Mr, Mooro, I'm glad to
sec you here. It is quito natural for
you to wish to learn by any means
in your power what lhat picture concealed. I came back, because I suddenly remembered that 1 had forgotten to rebang it."
Involiintaiiy lie glanced again at
the wall overhead, which was as
bare as his luiml, save for the nail
he hud alreudy examined.
...y'lYu'ir is-Dare tali ttitirif .',,""__»*_.
sound as any chimneypii.ee over
made." Here ho struck it heavily
witb his fist. "What did you imagine thut you had found?"
I smiled, shrugged my shoulders In
tnnla'l.lng repetition of my former
nction upon n liko occasion and then
answered brusquely:
"II dltl not come back to betray pollco secrets, but to restore this picture lo its place. Or perhaps you
prefer to hnve it down rather than
up?   It isn't much of nn ornament."
Ho scrutinized toe darkly from over
his shoulder, a wary gleam showing
Itself in his shrewd old eyes; and the
Idea, crossed me thnt the moment
might possess more significance than
np| euroil. Dut I did not step back-
Ward, nor give evidence In any way
that I had even thought of danger.
I simply laid my bnnd on tlio picture nnd looked up at him for orders.
Ho promptly signified thnt ho wished It hung, adding as I hesltatod
these words: "The pictures ln this
house nro supposed lo stay on the
Walls whom they belong. There Is a
traditional superstition against ro-
Inoxlng them."
I immediately liftod tbo print from
the floor. No doubt he had me at a
disadvantage lf evil was In his
heart, and my position on tho hearth
was ns dangerous us previous events
bad proved It to lie. But It would
not do to show the whito feathor at
a moment when his fnto, If not my '
own, bung ln tho balance; so motioning him to step down, I put foot
on tbo chnlr and raised the picture
aloft to hang It. As 1 did so, he
moved over to the hugo sottlo of his
ancostors, nnd, crossing his arms over its back, surveyed mo with a smile
I rather Imagined then snw.
Suddenly, ns I strained to put the
cord over tlio nail lio called out:
"Look out! you'll fall."
If he had Intended to give me a
start In payment for my previous rebuff ho did not succeed; for my
nerves had grown sternly and my
nrm firm at the glimpse I had
ennght of tbo shelf below mo. Tho
fine brown powder I hnd scattered
thero bad been displaced ln flvo distinct B|«)ts, nnd not by my fingers.
I hnd profcrred to risk tho loss of
my balance, rather than rent my
bnnd on the shelf, but ho had taken
no such precaution. Tho cluo I so
anxiously desired and for which I
had so recklessly worked, was obtained.
But whon half an hour lator I
found an opportunity of measuring
theso marks and comparing them
with those upstairs, I did not enjoy
tba full triumph I bad promised mv*
seir. For tno two impressions utterly failed to coincide, thus proving
that whoever the person was who
had  been    iii  this  house with    Mrs.
Jeffrey on the evening sho die, it wns
not hor uncle David.
CHAPTER VIII.
Lot me repeat. The person who
had left the marks of his presence in
the upper chamber of the Mooro
house was not the man popularly
known as Undo David. Who, then,
had it been? But one name suggested Itself to me,—Mr. Jeffrey.
It was not so easy for me to reach
this man as it had been for mo U>
reach his singular and unimaginative
uncle. In the first place, his door
had been closed to every one since
his wlfo's death. Neither friends nor
Btrangers could gain admittance
there unless they came vested with
authority from tlie .done.'. And
this, o\cn it I could manage to obtain it, would not answer in my
caso. What I had to say and do
would better follow a cbanco en-
countor. But no chance encounter
with this gentleman seuinud likely to
fall to my lot, and finally I swallowed my pride aod asked another favor
of the lieutenant. Would lie seo that
I was given an opportunity for carrying somo message, or of doing
somo orrand which would load to my
having an interview   with   Mr.   Jef-
HL-jf l        II   IM     .._■-_-,   ■    _..       , >,,    *
promise that my, curiosity should
stop at this point and that I would
ceaso to make a nuisance of myself.
I think he suspected me by this
time; but he made no remark, and in
a day or so I wus summoned tp carry a note to the bouse in K Street.
Mrs. Jeffrey's funeral had takun
pla.e tho day bcloro and tho houso
looked deserted. But my summons
speedily brought a neat-looking, but
very nervous maid to tho door,
whose eyes took on an unmistakable
expression of resistance whon I announced, my errand and asked to seo
Mr. Jeffrey. The expression would
not have struck mo as peculiar If
she had raised any objection to tho
biterv.ow I had solicited. Dut she
_id not. Her fear and antipathy.
Consequently, sprang from some otber source than her interest In tbe
men most threatened by my visit.
Was it—could It be, on her own account? Recalling what I had heard
whispered about the station concerning a maid of tho Jeffreys who always seemed on the point of saying
something which never really left her
lips, I stopped hor as sho was about
to slip upstairs and quietly asked:
"Are you Loretta?"
Tho way she turned, the way sh*
looked at me as she gave mo a short
affirmative, and then quickly proceeded on her Way, convinced me
that my colloa_fuos were right as to
her being a woman who had some
cause for dreading police interference.
I instantly made up my mind that
here wa* a mine to be worked and
that I know just tho demure little
soul bost equipped to act the port of
miner.
in a moment she came back, and 1
had a chance to note again her. pretty but expressionless features, among
which tho restless eyes alone bespoke character or decision.
"Mr. Jeffrey ls In-the back room
upBloirs," Bhe announced. "He says
for you to come up."
"is It the room' Mrs. Jeffrey used
to occupy?" I asked with open curiosity, as I passed hor.
An involuntary shudder proved
that she was not without fooling. So
did tho quick disclaimer:
"No, no! Those rooms aro closed
He occupies the one Miss Tuttle bad
before she went away."
"Oh, then,  Miss Tuttle is gone'
Loretta disdained to answer. She
had already said enough to cause
her to bito hor lip as she disappeared down the basement stair. Decidedly the boys were, right. An unoasy
feeling followed any conversation
with this girl. Yot, while there was
slyness in hor manner, there was a
certain frank honesty visible in it
too, which caused me to think that
if she could over be made to speak,
her evidence could be relied on.
Mr. Jeffrey was sitting with his
back to the door when I entered, but
V'Vf«u' 1.6* Iixp'-Ptofon of "Tils rememl
tiering mo as one of the men who bud
stood about that night in the Moore
houso, and I was not disappointed.
To him I was merely a messenger, or
common policeman; and he consequently paid mo no attention, whilo
I bestowed upon him the most concentrated scrutiny of my wholo life.
Till now I had soon him only In half
lights, or under elrcuuistan.es precluding my getting a very accurate
Idea of him as a mon and a gentleman. Now he sat with the broad
daylight on his face, and I bad every
opportunity for noting both his features and expression. Ho was. of a
distinguished typo; but the cloud enshrouding liim was as heavy as any
I had ever seen darkening' about a
man of his position and character,
His manner, fettered though lt wus
by gloomy thoughts, was not Just
tho manner I had expected to on-
counter.
Ho had a largo, clear oyo, but th*
veil which hid the brl£itfteei of his
regard was misty with suspicion, not
with t'ars. He appeared to shrink
from observation, and shifted uneasily as long ns I stood ln front of
him, though ho snld nothing and did
not lift his eyes from the letter ho
was perusing till he hoard me step
back to tho door I had jiurposelyi left
open and softly cIobo It. Then ho
glanced up, with a keon, if not
alarmed look, which seemed an exaggerated ono for thut occasion, —
that is, if ho had no secret to keep.
"Do you suffer so from drafts?" h*
ae'iod, rising In a way which ln Itself was a dismissal.
I smiled an amused denial, then
with the simple directness 1 thought
most likely to win mo bis confidence,
entered straight upon my businoss in
theso plain words:
"Pardon mo, Mr. Jeffrey, I have
something to say which is not exactly fittod for tho ears of servants."
Then, as he pushed his chair suddenly lack, I added roussurodly. "It
is not a polico matter, sir, but an
entirely personal one. lt may striko
you as important, and It may not.
Mr. Jeffrey, I was thu man who
mnde the unhnppy discovery In tbe
Moori mani lo ', whii h has plunged
this house Inlo mourning."
This nmiiiuiiciinent startled hlin
and produced a visible change in his
manner. His eyes flew llrst to ono
door and then lo nnother, as If It
were ho who feared Intrusion now.
"1 beg your pardon for speaking on
so painful a topic,'' I went on, as
soon us I saw hu was ready to listen to me. "My exruso is that I cam.
upon a littlo thing tbnt same night
wliich  I    have not tliQti_rl.it  of sulfi-
cirnt importance to mention tn any
ono else, but which it may interest
you to hear about."
I lore I took fron a bopk I held, a
piece of blotting-paper. It was whito
on ono sido and blue on the other.
The white sido T had thickly chalked,
though this was not apparent. Laying down this piece of blutting-pa-
per, thalked side up, on tlie end of
a largo table near which wo wore
standing, I took out nn envelope .
from my pocket, nnd, shaking It I
gently to and  fro,  remarked:
"In an upper room of tbe Moore
house—you remember the southwest
chnmber, sir?"
Ah! didn't he! There was no misdoubting the quick emotion— the
shrinking and the alarm with wliich
ho heard tills room mentioned.
"It. was in thut room that 1 found
these."
Tipping up tho envelopo, I scattered over the foio of the blotter a few
of the glistening particles I lind collected from the place mentioned.
He bent over them, astonished.
Then, as was natural, brushed them
together in a heap with tho tips of
bis lingers, and leaned to look again,
Just ns I breaXthed a heavy sigh
which scattered tliem  fur and wide.
Instinctively, he withdrew his
hand, whereupon I embraced tlio opportunity of turning Iho blotter over, uttering meanwhile tho most profuse npologies. Then, ns if anxious
not to repeat my misadventure, i
lot tlio Plotter lie wueiu it ...*.., .....i
pouring out the few remaining particles inlo my palm, I held 11,em toward tho light, in such o. way that he
Was compelled to lean across tbo
table in order to see thom. Nuturul-
ly, for I had .planned tbe distance
well, bis finger-tips, white with tho
chalk ho had unconsciously ,,handled,
j touched the blue -iirfueu of'the blot-
• ter now lying uppermost und left
i tbelr marks there.
I could have shouted in my elation
at the success of this risky uuuiocu-
ver, but managed to suppress my
emotion and to stand quite slill
while ho took a good look at the tilings. They seenud to huve great
and unusual Interest for him and tt ,
wus with no. ordinary emotion that',
ho.finally asked:
"Wliat do you make out of these,
and why do you bring tbem here?"
My answer wus written under his
hand; but this, it wus fur from my
policy to impart. So putting on my
friendliest air, I returned, with suitable respoct:
"I don't know what to make of
them. They look like gold; but thut
Is for you to decide. Do you want
them, sir?"
"'No," he replied starting erect and
withdrawing his hand from tho blotter. "It's but. a trifle^ not worth
our ntton!ion. But I thank you just
the same for bringing It to my notice.''
And again bis manner became a
plain dismi sal.
I This timo I accepted It as such
without question. Carelessly restoring the pioce of blotting-paper to the
book from which I had taken it, 1
mado a bow and withdrew toward
the door. Ho seemed to bo thinking, and the deep furrows, which I
nm suro had been lacking from his
brow a weok previous, became start-
lingly visiblo. 1- inally ho observed:
"Mrs. Jeffrey was not. in ber right
mind when sbe so unhappily took
her life. I see now that tho change
in her dates hack to her wedding
day, consequently any little peculiarity sho inny huve shown at that timo
is not to bo wondered at."
"Certainly not," I boldly ventured;
"if such peculiarities were shown offer the fright given her. by tho catastrophe wliich look place in tlio library."
I His eyes, which were fixed on mine,
flashed, gnd his hands closod convulsively.
"Wo will not consider the subject,'.'
be muttered, reseating himself in tho
chair from which bo bud risen.  .
I bowed again and went out. I did
not dwell on the interview in my
own mind nor did 1 allow myself to
draw any conclusions from it, till 1
had carried the blotter into tbe
southwest chumber of the Moore
house and careiully compared the"'iniprossiuns made on it Willi the marks

known as "Plantation Bitters." He devised an enigmatic line, "S.T. 1800.
X.," which appeared simultaneously
In every American newspaper and periodical of any size, and also on the
walls of Innumerable barns, fences and
trees. One day all the rocks of the Niagara falls were covered with the
same mystic sign. Forest trees along
the lines of the Pennsylvania railroad
were hewn down to afford the passengers a glimpse of the sauic announcement emblazoned In letters 400 feet
high on the mountain side.   Wbat did
the cabalistic announcement convey?
Not until the proprietor had made his

"S.T. 1800. X." meant "Started Trade

MISS MARY A.  BOOTH.
A Woman Scientist Who Has Not -lad
a College  Ediientlou.
Miss Mary A. .Both of Springfield,
Mass., Is a womnu who is well known
to .the scientific world. . Microscopical
research is ber special field, and Bhe
has written many viiluable papers pn
the results of her cxperl'uicuts. i Her
work hns been of such a chnfacter as
to attract attention and win praise
from scientific associations both ln
this country nnd in England.
She ls a fellow of tbe Royal Microscopical society of London, one of the
few women to be admitted to that society; a fellow of the American Association For the Advancement of Science, a member of the American Microscopical society and a member of the
New York Microscopical society.   She
and there nfter something needed at
the last moment. There Is no fussing
wben some one happens to be late to a
meal. There ls no fluttering In and out
»nil jumping up; excusing oueself
to rush to see If tbe biscuits nre burning. There Is no scowl on the forehead
of this housewife who does her work
"bo easily.1 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
nnd Jumps nnd runs nnd frets nnd
fusses will sooner pr later break down
and be a chronic Invalid. Such a woman ls a burden to herself aud no consolation to her family. The more Bllent-
ly the wheels of domestic affairs nr*
made to run the healthier the family
and the happier the'wfte and mother.
HISS MAUY A. BOOTH.
belongs also to the Washington Microscopical society, the Brooklyn Institute and the National Geographical society.
She has contributed to all tbe leading American microscopic journals and
to some of the foreign periodicals. She
has beeu offered the editorship of several such Journals and edited the
Tractlcal Microscopy eight years... gb*
bas bad charge of departments In ffer-'
eral magazines, aud her contributions
are still solicited. Sbe bas assisted in
■the preparation of several authorities
on diatoms and marine nlgae, in wtfleh
her work Is acknowledged.
Miss Booth has not had a college education, but was moved to study microscopy by ber love for nature. Her fa-
..»_,-• e„„_,.v!-,<?._,i-r-uO~--' "uoiiection or
mlneralogieal and geological specimens
was donated to the Springfield literary
by Miss Booth, nnd It wns this donation which gave the impetus to the
movement which has resulted In the
erection of a handsome science museum. ■■   ■
Miss Booth Inherited her love of science from her father and worked with
blm for many years.
Her mother's family was literary,
the Bartons of Vermont, of whom
Clara- Barton Is ine.
In 1877 Miss Booth bought h6r flrst
compound microscope and hns used It
constantly since. Not only docs she
use the microscope skillfully, but she
prepares her own lantern slides by the
use of tbe microscope and camera,
work whtch ls rarely attempted by
Women.
She entered the lecture field several
years ago and has been a success from
the start. She has traveled to various
parts of the country, and her lectures
have been well received everywhere.
She spenks In a conversational tone.
She never bewilders her audience with
technicalities; neither does she mnko
her hearers feel that she Is patronizing
them. She hnndles her subject In such
a wny as to cutcb tbe Interest of every
one from the start, and her discourse
Is delightfully flavored with a keen
sense of humor.
She illustrates the lecture by the
stereopticon, for which she hns prepared the slides herself.
She ls a member of all the prominent women's societies In Springfield,
nnd, although hampered by 111 health,
often prepares valuable papers for
them.—Boston Globe.
Effect of Women In Business.
Instead of' the business world suffering from the advent of women, lt ls
the home that is suffering from the
age long defection of men. If lt ls true
that every occupation has Its masculine side nnd Its feminine side, then lt
ls true of the domestic occupations ns
well as of those belonging to the world
of business, and it Is evident that the
home wlILsuffer from an undue predominance of one element over the
other.   ..'■■■. ,
Thnt our homes nre not running
smoothly; thnt Ants nnd boarding
houses multiply and divorces nnd nervous . prostrations, instead of proving
tbat women ought to stay nt bom*
and set things right, may well mean
that women need tbe fresher air and
pient; and yet what la moro dangerous
than a cold?

Several cases of what Is called "cot-
Bet cancer" nre reported. It occurs in
women Who are obliged to use Incessantly the right arm In. their Woffc
the whole duy long, tbe growth appearing at the site of the greatest fi'lc-.
tlon—1. e., just nbove the upper edge of
the corset. One woman so affected
was employed In a fut factory, her
work being to Scrape tne fur of rabbits' skins with a blunt knife so as to
make all the hairs of a uniform length.
Another woman had been employed ln
a laundry, ironing clothes.
Cancer would not odcur In these
c."ses unless there was a predisposition
to it, yet it might be well for women
who are obliged to use their arms ln
a constant to aud fro movement at
their work not to wear a corset when
so employed.—Newark News.
Family  Fire Drill.
A family fire drill occasionally, where
there are little children, ls an excellent
plan. Provide them with a wool dressing gown and slippers to keep near the
bed and teach them nt the first alarm
of fire to slip tbem on, throw a blanket
or rug over head and shoulders, and if
possible tie a wet handkerchief, preferably silk, over their mouths and then
take the most direct way out. Teach
them bow to put out a small fire with
rugs or blankets, stopping direct drafts
by closing doors or' windows, and,
above all, to keep cool and collected.
A Shampoo For Dry Scalp.
A splendid tonic shampoo for a dry
scalp can be made as follows: Take two
ounces of white castile soap, one-half
an ounce of petasslum carbonate, eight
ounces of alcob.-l, two ounces of tincture of qulllalja, twenty drops of oil of
lavender and elgut ounces of water.
Dissolve ln the water the potassium
carbonate and soap, then add the other
ingredients. Bub well Into the roots
of the hair nnd then rinse well ln several waters. Dry if possible ln the
sun, never ln frout of a fire, as this
will make the hair brittle.
What "l.lcht Diet" Mean*.
When a physiciaii orders light diet
for one who is just beginning to.recover from a severe Illness lt is well
to kuow exactly what dishes "light
diet" includes. Here is a list given
by a careful doctor of the writer's acquaintance: Clam, chicken and mutton
broth, broiled filets of chicken, lanib
ebons. teiidwloiiv*Ja-li Sg|'s"*Q\'j"inki
milk toast, cereal In small portions,
koumiss, cocoa, custards,' fresh fruit,
gelatin jellies and sponge cake.
Surinam.  Potatoes.
A southern housekeeper celebrated
for her excellent Saratoga potatoes
describes her method. It ls the familiar one, with one variation. After the
potatoes are sliced as thin as shavings
they are thrown into cold water until
crisp. Turn this water off and pour
on boiling wnter for nu instant This
takes out all the starch. The cold water should be turned on again quickly
and left until the slices aro crisp. Wipe
dry nnd fry, n few, pieces at a time, ln
a frying basket.
Flffs a. Food.
Figs hnve been used ns food In the
orleni from the earliest times ami
were also believed to be an antidote to
poison.
Wash grcar.y dishes, pots or pans with
Lever's Dry Soup a powder. It will remove the grease with the greatest care. 3fi
A Straight   Backbone.
Regarding proper polso of the body,
a straight backbone ls tbe first essential. ,Tbis lifts the chest sufficiently
without straining nnd flattens the abdomen, giving proper breathing position. Never prepare for a breath; always be ready, standing straight, and
the lungs will develop while inhaling
and exhaling through the nose.
MnttlnE.
In sweeping matting always make
the strokes across the breadths. Use
n soft broom. A harsh, stiff one wears
nnd breaks the fiber. Water rotB tbe
fiber of matting, therefore ln wiping
lt wring the cloth very dry. Salt and
water will brighten matting. Grense
spots can be removed with blotting
paper and a warm iron.

Chatham Incubator
Poultry raising with a Chatham
Incubator is a very profitable and
easily managed occupation. Unless
you want to go into it extensively it
need take but very little of your time.
Government reports show that the
demand for chickens in Canada is
greatly in excess of the supply and
Great Britain is always clamoring
for more. That means a steady
market and good prices for chickens.
Ypu cannot raise chickens successfully with a setting hen. She is wasting time setting when she should be
laying. While she Is batching and
brooding a few chickens she could be
laying five or six dozen eggs. The
percentage of chickens she hatches is
much less than lhat produced by the
Chatham Incubator.

Improvement of importance In Incubator construction that has been produced. They are made of thoroughly
seasoned wood, with two walls, case
within case. Between these walls
mineral wool is packed forming the
very Vest insulation. Each piece of
the case Is mortised and grooved and
screwed, making the whole as solid
as a rock. Chatham Incubators are
equipped with scientifically perfect
regulator* which are an Infallible
mean* of regulating the temperature.

"You don't mean to say you    gave
that tramp something to eat?" queried
Mr.  Polk.
"Yes, I just couldn't help it," replied his wife, "for he reminded me
so much of you."
"You mean he looked like me?"
"Oh, no! but when I asked him to
do a little work for me he said he
hadn't time."
Cholera morbus, cramps and kindred
complaints annually make their appearance at ...e same time as the hot
weather, green fruit, cucumbers, melons, etc., and many persons are de.
barred from eating these tempting
fruits, but they need not abstain lf
they have Dr. J. D. Kellogg'B Dysentery Cordial; and take a few drops In
water. It euros the cramps and
cholera in a remarkable manner, and
ls sure to check every disturbance of
the  bowels.

browsing."

We see much in our periodicals nowadays about beautifying our back

but to what out of the wny corner has
the small boy's precious belongings
been relegated? Surely the little fellow's rights nre to be respected, but
we see no Indications ln tbe numerous
photographs of ornamental back yards
of a vine covered workshop whero the
saw, the hatchet nnd bits of wood,
etc., so dear to a boy's heart, are to be
found. The boys should have a portion
screened from the rest of the garden
by a high trellis or fence of chicken
wire, which would be a thing of beauty whon covered with blossoming
vines; then tbey will not be driven so
often to find amusement on the streets.

•'Othello" In a Hater Theater.
A correspondent writing ln the Australasian thus describes a performance
of "Othello" ln a Malay theater: "It
was all In Malay, of course, but where
they had got the European costumes
from I cannot Imagine. They were of
all kinds and descriptions. Othello was
dressed as a toreador, with tennis
shoes on; Casslo, as Henry VIII.; Iago
ln a black velvet court suit, with a
barrister's wig well down over his
nose; Desdemona, ln a short Spanish
dancing girl's dress; Roderlgo, a green
Druid's gown, with pink stockings and
tanned boots. But the joke of the
whole thing was the music. There wns
a Malay orchestra of banjos, mandolins, etc., but they played scarcely any
native music. They all simply love
European music, to which they set
their own Malayan words. The whole
play was Interspersed with songs, Just

1904 CROP IN  UNITED  STATES
Tho agricultural department ai
Washington has made public the fol
lowing bulletin, showing the acreage
production and value of the principal
farm crops of the United States in
1904:
Crops. Acreage. Production.
Corn 92,231,5812,407,480,981
Winter wheat. 2G,8C5,853 332,935,340
Spring  wheat.   17,209,020    219,464,171
Oats 27,842,609     894,595,552
Barley     3,145,878     139.748.95S
lt has been found Impracticable to
make a definite estimate of the amount
of wheat fit for milling, owing to the
difficulty of drawing a hard and fast
line between the millable and the
non-millable. Reports, however, have
been made on the average weight of
wheat per bushel in the three prin
clpal spring wheat states, and such
average has been found to be 5?
pounds In Minnesota, 51 pounds in
North Dakota and 50 pounds in South
Dakota.

they would have taken in twice as
much, and nre delighted with the
results «f fhpir first efforts. Tho crowd
seem to get imbned wit.) tbe "bachelor
spirit" uud went iu for a jolly good
time, cloven o'clock arriving before any
one started for home. An entertaining
program wns given, tho first part illustrating bachelor life in u bachelor
shack. There were two bachelors
doing their housework in u manly way,
meeting with many littlo mishaps in
their duties. Before they finished their
work a number of bni.iolprvhuilis arrived
to passed Ihe evening iu telling yarns.
After this tho judges, Mrs. Thos. Saeret,
Mrs. ('lover nnd Mrs. Kiuch, nnnonnced

and a song by Mr. Parkinson. The
Eolian Chorus won the appreciation of
tho audience and were repeatedly

Realm.
Anqfhcr ijJi.jtjic,ea,bl,e feature in th.e
new models of spring neckdress is tijc
absence of silk and the complete pre
dominancf pf the "tub" idea. This
does not mean necessarily limitation
to the severely plain and tailored
models. While .there arc some fetch
ing new tailor-made models, the majority of the designs that appeal most
strongly as novel and attractive arc
distinctly marked by hand work and
ornamentation.
The most frequently used type of
decoration in the new Stocks, Sets and
Belts fakes the forms of meflajjions
and other open wqtk. The old English embroidery (ovals) is more in evidence than ever. A similar though
newer and more attractive type of
openwork is the "eyelet" or circular
embrojijery. The Jfjs|| crochet work
is also much in evidence. Still another form of openwork Stocks, Collars and Cuffs js the Venise lace. This
treatment is one of the most delicate
and novel to be found in a season that
seems to be unusually bountiful in
novelties.
The shapes of the Neckpieces, Cuffs
and Belts have undergone considerable
change from those hitherto in vogue.
The most striking variation in the
form of the stocks is their elongation.
The new Collars and Cuffs are wider
than hitherto, especially the latter,
some of the most stylish qf which are
even three to four inches in width. In
Belts there is a reaction from the ex
treme girdle widths of the winter,
the best models for the spring and
summer being more moderate in
width.
A 4URS. effective trimming for linen
gowns can be made with rick-rack
braul, by fashioning it into daisies,
with the centres of heavy linen thread
in spiders overworked- in French
knots. To make the daisies, draw two
poji^s together witjb each st^t'jb "-"'i1
a circle is farmed, then with the
thread continue the spider centre.
TI1C.9 are usually used in three sizes,
and as the braid is but a few cents -per
yard a very pretty ornamentation can
be had at small cost. These with lace
stitches wAvftl also be charming in a
yoke or cuffs.
marvels of loveliness. Petticoats,'

PONGEES-
ifi pate white, chalk-white and in
the natural 1111,1, as yy.ej.l as in all the
colors now in favor, are greatly to
the fore again. For coolness, fitness,
the shedding of dust and ail that goes
to making a comfortable, pleasant
summer .costume, pongees have no
superior. They pot only clean well,
bu<, if simply made, they may be sent
to the laundry, and be returned in
good order. The colored pongees are
capable of being made up into exceedingly .pr.etty costumes fit for all
day functions.
