of it. The illustrations which have

I passed up the low steps und laid
my hand upon the knob eif the old-
fashioned front door.
Not that' I expected to win an entrance thereby, but because it is my
nature to approach everything in a
common-sense way. Conccivo then
niy astonishment when ut first touch
the door yi-lded. It wus not. even
'"' "So! so!" thought 1 "This is no
fool's job; soma one is it; the house."
- I had  provided myseli  witb an 01-
_»linary  pockot_lantern,    and,   when    I
bad convinced Hibbard that I fully
meant to enter the house und discover for myself who had taken advantage of the popular prejudice (.gainst
it to make a secret refuge or render*
\ous of Its decayed old looms, 1
took out this lantern und held it in
' r< adincss.
"\V.e may strike a hornets' nest," 1
explained to Hihbard, whose feet
seemed very heavy even for a man ol
his sue. _i'Bul I'm going in and sip

we first tako off our shoes.   We can
' Hide them in these hushes,"
"I ulways catch cold when I walk
barefooted," mumbled my brave companion;   but.  receiving  no  reply      he
- drew off his shoes and dropped tbem
beside mine in the cluster of stark
bushce which figure so prominently
in the illustrations thut 1 have jnst
mentioned. Then he took out his
revolver, and cocking it, stood waiting, while I gave a cautious push to
tho door.
Darkness! silence!
Rather had I confronted a light
and heard some noise even if it had
been the ominous click to which wo
are so well accustomed. Hibbard
soomed to share my feelings, though
from an entirely different cause.
"Pistols and lanterns arc no good
here," ho grumbled. "What we want
nt this blessed minute is a priest
with a sprinkling of holy water, and
I for one—"
Ho was actually sliding off.
With a smothered oath I drew hiin
"Seo here!" I criod, "you're not a
bubo in arms. Como on or— . Well,
what now?"
He had clenchod my arm and was
pointing to the door Which was
slowly swaying to behind us.
"Notice that," ho whispered. "No

My patience could stand no more.
Willi a shako 1 rid myself of his
clutch, muttering:
"There, go! You're too much of a
t fool -for. ino. I'm In for it ulone,"
And in proof of my determination, I
. turned the slido of the lantern and
Hushed tho light through the house.
* -Tho effect was ghostly; but while
the fellow at my side breathed hard
he did not take udvantage of ray
words to mako his escape, as I half
expected bim to. Perhaps, like myself, he was fascinate- by tho dreary
s| c.'tucle of long shadowy walls and
an- equally shadowy staircase eiherg-
iug from a harkness which a minute
Ijefore had seemed impenetrable. Per,
hups ho was simply ashamed. At all
events he. stood his ground, scrutinizing with rolling eyes 1 hat portion
ot the hall whero two columns, with
gilded Corinthian capitals, marked
tho door ol the room which no man
entered without purpose or passed
without dread. Doubtless he was
thinking of thut which had so frequently been carried out between
those columns. 1 know that 1 was;
and when, in the sudden draft made
by the open door, some'open draper-
lee banging near those columns blew
out With a sudden BWOOp uud shiver,
- 1 was not at ull astonished to see
him lose what lillle courage hatl remained in hint. The truth is. I was
startled myself, but I was able to
hide tbo fact and to whisper back to
him, fiercely:
"DOfl't be an idiot. That curtain
hides nothing worse than some
sn'nking political refugee or a gang
of countctf.Iters."
•Maybe.   I'd just liko to    put my
hand on Upson nnd "
I had just heard -something.
For   a.  moment  Wo   stood     breathless, bit!  as the sound    was    not repealed'I concluded thut it    was tho
creaking of that far-away shutter.
Certainly there wns nothing moving
near us.
"Shall we go upstairs','" whispered
"Nql till we have made .sure that,
all is right down here."
A door stood slightly ajar on our
Pushing It open we looked in. A
well  furnished parlor  was  before us.
"Here's where the wedding took
place," remarked Hibbard, Straining
bis head over my shoulder.
There were signs of this mddlhg
on every side Walls and ceilings
had been hung with garlands, and
these still clung to the mantelpiece
and over and around the various
doorways. Torn-off branches and the
remnants ot old bouquets, dropped

■it's    funeral-like,"  chattered
Ho was right; I felt as if I were
shutting the lid of a collin when I
finally closed the door.
Our next steps took us into tho
rear where we found little to detain
us, and then, with a certain dread
fully justified by the event, we made
fur the door defined by the two Corinthian columns.
It was ajar like the rest, and, call
mu coward or call me fool—I have
called Hibbard both, you will remember—I found that it tost me an
effort to lay my hand on its mahogany panels. Danger, if danger
there was, lurked here; and while I
hud never known myself to quail
before any ordinary antagonist, 1,
like others of my kind, have no especial fondness for unseen and mysterious perils.
Hibbard, who up to this point liud
followed nie almost too closely, now
accorded mu ull tho room that was
necessary. It was with a sense of en-
toi'iiirjr alone upon the scone that I
finally thrust Wide the door and
crossed tho threshold ol this ro-
doiibluble room where, but two
short weeks liofore, a fresh victim hud
been added to the list of those who
by somo unheard-of, unimaginable
Moan's found their death within its
My first glance showed me little
save the ponderous outlines of un
old settle, which jutted from the
corner of the fireplace hull' way out
into Ihe room. As it was seemingly
from lilts seat that the men, who at
various times had been found lying
here, had fallen to their doom, a
thrill passed over mo as I noted ils
Unwieldy bulk and the deep shadow
it. threw on tho ancient and dishonored hearthstone. To escape the
ghastly memories it evoked and also
to satisfy myself that the room was
really'tis empty as it seemed, 1 took
another step forward. This caused
the light from the lantern I carried
to sproad beyond the point on which
It hud hitherto been- so effectively
concentrated: lint the result, was to
emphasize rather than detract from
the extreme desolation oi the great
room. The settle was u fixture, ns
1 afterwards found, and was almost
the only arliclo of furniture to be
seen on the witle expanse of Uncar-
peted floor. There wns a table or
two in hiding .somewhere amid the
shadows al Ihe oilier end from where
1 stood, and possibly some kind ot
stool-or settee; but the. gcneiul impression made upom nm was that, of
a completely dismantled place given
over to molh and rust.
I do not include the walls. They
wero not burn like the floor, but covered with books from floor to ceiling. These books were not the books
of to-day; they had slood so long in
thoir places unnoted and untouched,
that they had acquired the color of
fungus, und smelt— Well, thero is no
use tedding to the picture Every one'
knows the spirit .of sickening desolation pervading rooms which have
been shut up for an indefinite length
of time from air and sunshine.
THO elegnnce of the heavily stuccoed ceiling, admitted to bo ono of
tho finest specimens of its kind in
Washington, aa welt as tbo richness
of the carvings ornamenting tho
mantel of .Italian marble rising above
the accursed hearthstone, only served
to make more evident tho extreme
neglect into which the rest of tho
room bad sunk. Being anything but
anxious to subject myself further to
its unhappy influence nnd quite convinced that the place wus Indeed as
empty us it looked, 1 turned to leave
when m.v eye fell upon something s_o
unexpected and so extraordinary,
seen as it was under the intliiencu of
tbe old tragedies with which my
mind wns necessarily full, Unit I
paused, balked In my advance, antl
well-nigh tincei'lain whether 1 looked
upon a real thing or on some
strange and terrible fantusy of my
aroused imagination.
A form lay before me, outstretched
on thut. portion of tho floor which
bnd hitherto been hidden from me by
llie hall-open door—a woman's form,
which even in that first cusual look
Impressed itself upon me as one of
aerial delicacy and extreme refine*
ment; and this form lay ns only
the deud lie; the dead! And I had
bci'n looking at tho hearthstone for
jnst    such  a picture!       No,  nol just
such a picture, for this woman luy
faco Uppermost, and, on the lloor beside her v.us blood—
A blind, hod plucked my sleeve. It
was Tlili!i.ird's. Startled by my
Immobility and silence, he had stepped i.;i ivithtpiuking members expecting ho hi'.riily knew what. llnl no
siH'in'i* did his eyes fall on the pros*
Ilute.' (ui m which held mo spellbound, than an Unforeseen Chang*
took place In him. What hnd unnerved nn... ii stilted him to full self-
po-session. Death in this shape was
familiar to him. He hud no fear of
blood, lie did not show surprise at
orieou'iilorlng ii, but only at the cf-
fccl  ii   appeared lo produce on me

"Shot through the heart! She must

That wns n new experience for this
room. No wound huel ever beforo
disfigured those who had fallen hero,
nor had any of the previous victim!,
been found lying on any other spot
than the one over which that hugu
settle kept giiiird. As theso thoughts
crossed my mind, I instinctively
glanced again toward the flrcplaco
for what I almost refused to believe
lay Outstretched at my feot. When
nothing more appeared there than
that old seat of sinister memory, I
oxporlanced a thrill which poorly pre-'
pared mo for the cry which I now
hoard raised by Hibbard.
"Look libra I What do you make of

Alas!   thero was but-una thing; it |

had succumbed bad been'- delivered
by herself. This fair und . delicato
creature was a suicide
Ilut suicide in this place! How
could wo account for that? Had the
story of this room's ill-acquired
lame acted hypnotically on her, or
had she stumbled upon- the open
door in front and been'glad of any
refuge where her misery might find a
solitary termination? Closely scanning her upturned face, I sought an
ans-wcr to this question, and while
thus seeking received a fresh shock
which I did not hesitato to coinmun-
iealt" to my now none-too-sensitive
.•'"Look at these features," 1 cried.
"1 seem to know them, do you?"
Ho growled out a dissent, but
stooped at my bidding and gave the
pitiful young face a prolonged stare.
When he looked up again it wns with
a puzzled contraction o! his eyebrows.
"I've certainly seen , it somewhere," he hesitatingly admitted,
edging slowly away toward the door.
"Perhaps in the papers. Isn't she
"Like!" I inleiTitpled, "it is Veronica Mooro herself; tho owner of
this houso and she who was married
here two weeks since to Mr. Jeffrey.
Evidently her reason, was unseated
by the tragedy which threw so deep
a gloom over her wedding."
Not lor an instant did I doubt the
correctness of tliis identification. All
tho pictures I had seen of this well-
known society belle had been marked
by an individuality of expression
which fixed her face in the memory
nml which I now saw repeated In the
lifeless features  before me.
Greatly startled by the discovery,
but quite convinced lhat this was
but the dreadful sequel of an already
sufficiently dark tragedy, I proceeded
to take such steps ns are common in
these cases. Having sent the too-
willing Hibbard to notify headquarters, I was on the point of making a
memorandum of such details ns seemed Important, wljen my lantern suddenly Wont out, leaving mo in total
This was far fr-Jro pleasant, but the
effect it produced upon my mind was
not without ils result. For no
sootier did I find myself alone and in
tho unrelieved darkness of this grave-
like room, than I became convinced
that no woman, however frenzied,
would moke her plunge into nn unknown existence from the midst of a
darkness only too suggestive of the
tomb to which she wns hastening. It
was not in nature, not in woman's
nature, nt all events. Either she
had committed the final net before
such daylight as could filler through
the shuttors of, Ibis closed-tip room
had quito disappeared-nn hypothesis
instantly destroyed by the warmth
which slill lingered iu certain portions of her body—or else tlio light
which had been burning when sho
pulled tho fatal trigger had since
been carried elsowhore or extinguished.
Recalling the uncertain gleams
which wc hud seen Hashing from ono
of the upper windows, I was inclined
to give some crcdenco to tho former
theory, but wus disposed to be fair
to both. So after re-lighting my
lamp, I turned on ono of tho gas
cocks of tho iiuissivo chandelier over
my head and npplicd a match. Tho
result was just what I anticipated;
no gas in the pipes. A meter had not
been put in for tho wedding. This
tbo papers had repeutedly stated in
dwelling upon the garish effect of
the daylight on the elaborate costumes worn-by tho ladies. Candles
hail not even been provided—ah,
candles! What, then, was it that I
saw glittering on a small table at
the other end of the room? Suroly
a cnndlestick, or rather an old-fashioned candelabrum with a half-
burned candle in one of its sockets.
Hastily crossing to it, I felt of the
candle-wick, lt was quite stiff and
hard. But not considering this a
satisfactory proof that it had not
been lately burning—tho tip of a
wick soon dries after the flame Is
blown oul— I took out my penknife
nnd attacked tlio wick at what might
be called its roots; whereupon I
found that where the threads had
been piptectod by the wax they wero
comparatively soft and penetrable.
'I'he conclusion was obvious. True
to my instinct in this matter tho
woman had not lifted her weapon in
the darkness; this candle had been
burning. But here my thoughts "received a fresh shock. If burning,
then by whom had it since been
blown out? Not by her; her wound
was too fatally sure for that. Tho
steps token between tho table whero
the candelabrum stood and the
place where she lay, _wcre taken,    lf
taken at all by her, beforo that shot
was fired. Somo ono else—some one
whose breath still lingered in .the
air about me—had extinguished this
candle-Homo after she fell, nnd tho
death I looked down upon was not a.
suicide, but a" murder!
'fho.excitement wliich this discovery
caused to tinglo through my overy
nervo had Its birth In the ambitious
feeling referred to in tho opening
paragraph of this narrative. I bo-
lloved that my long-sought-for opportunity had como; that with tho
start given mo by tho conviction
Just statod, I should bo enabled to .
collect such clues and establish such
facts as would lead to tho acceplanco
of this new theory instead of the
apparent ono of suicide embraced by
Hibbard and about to be promulgated ut police headquartors. H so,
what a triumph would bo mine; and
what a dobt I should owe to tho
crabbed old gentleman, whose seemingly fantastic fears had first drawn
mo to this place!
Realizing tho vAluo of tho opportunity allordcd -mo by tho few minutes 1! was likely to spend alone on

The days of the crisp bank note are
numbered. Instead of being crisp the
money which tlie government bureau
of engraving and printing will hereafter turn out will be soft and velvety,
If Important experiments which are
I now being conducted ln the presence
: of treasury otflcers for the purpose of
demonstrating the advantage of a
novel chemical treatment for paper
prove satisfactory. Tho result ot the
adoption of tbe new secret process will
be to revolutionize a portion of the work
connected, with the printing of paper
money lii'the United States. Under tbe
new process It will tnke .ust.sixty days
less time to manufacture a bank note
than under the present method. The
chemical solution uot ouly renders the
paper soft and velvety, but It nlso
makes it nonsbrinkuble. By applying
It to ri Japanese napkin that article
becomes as soft and pliable as a tissue of silk. The chemical preparation
acts as nn antiseptic aud preservative.
Wheu applied. to old documents it
seems lo knit the fiber together and
prevent further decay. Under the present process of printing paper money
the paper has to be thoroughly soaked
in water. While It ls in this soaked
condition one side of tbe paper is
printed. The sheet is then placed in a
steam room and kept under a high temperature for thirty days, the time necessary for tho Ink to dry. The sheet
is ngaiii soaked as in the llrst Instance
and tbo reverse side of the bill printed.
Tho thirty day drying-process then has
to be repeated. In cases where a third
Impression ou the bill is necessary,
wbicli Is required when the printing
ls done in two colors, the wetting nnel
drying process has to be repeated for
a third time, and another month ls thus
consumed ln Its production. Besides
the delay of this process the wetting
and drying rot the fiber of the paper,
and, although It ls "starched" to give
it the crisp appearance, the starch soon
weirs out and the bill becomes limp
and worn, lu printing bills on paper
that has been .routed by the new process no wetting is ueeessary. The iiik
loses none of Its luster when applied
to tho paper, as under the old process,
and Is thoroughly dry within forty-
eight hours after the printing ls done.

Anaemic -people—people with watery blood—are without defense when

weapon against disease is a plentiful

person may catch cold, hut. quickly
throws It off. but a cold lingers

who .suffers from headache and dizziness-, who cannot climb a stair

be saved by a supply of new, rich, red
blood, and Dr. Williams Pink l'ills
is the only medtoine that actually
makes rich, red blood with every
dos_. Ordinary medicines only touch
tho Dympto_s of disease—Dr. Williams Pink Pills go right straight to
the root of the trouble and drlvo It
out. That-is-why theso pills have a
larger sale than any other medicine
hi the world, and that is why thousand, and thousands of people praise
them '30 highly. Mis3 Florence G.

I.ditor and Proprietor of the Wetas-
kiwin Times.
Tho Canudian West, it has often
been snid, is the bind of opportunity.
This is true not only of. thoso portions of its vast area that bave been
developed to a comparative extent,
and where the possession of a moderate amount of capital ensures returns much greater than is possible
In the older communities in the East,
but also, and to an even greater ex-
*. tent, lu tho largo and naturally
wealthy districts being continually
opened up as the march of progress
and development, duo to the steady
inflow of population, goes on. These
developments are as remarkable for
their permanence ns for their rapidity. Ono season sees tlie prairie
grassos waving in the wind, and far
as the eye cu-n see there is no sign or
vestige of human habitation. l.ro a
year has passed, the railway has
penetrated the prairies, and tho be
Shillings of a busy town appear.
And, almost with the pioneer storekeeper comes tlio country publisher,
sets up his Washington—or, if his
capital approximates his ambition,
his cylinder press—issues his first
copy of a six-column folio, and'starts
out on that career Of public-spirited
publicity that makes the paper a
weekly blessing to the merchants,
tho farmers, and every other class
of tho now community.
Many of tho best country weekly
and semi-weekly properties of tho Canadian West had the humblest beginnings. But, with the unerring instinct and the deep-seated faith of
the pioneer publisher, the men who
risked every cent of their modest
capital,% and incurred obligations
that in the event of non-success
would permanently cripple their finances, went ahead in their enterprise, confident in the field that they
had selected, and satisfied that time
would vindicate their judgment. And,
in tho vast majority of instances,
they have "won out." In mauy cases
two or three years' has seen such
changes and growths in a western
Canadian weekly that would surprise
one not familiar with the speed at
which things move in the West. II
should not, however, surprise any.
body who knows that the country
which can raise l'ulllledged towns in
a year "can also produce, full-grown
and ably conducted newspapers in
the samo space of time.
A fine illustrntion of this rapidity
of development is afforded by the
Wetaskiwin Tillies. It is some three
and a half years old, it having been
established unel first issued on .March
22nd., 1901. Its beginnings were
most modest, lt nppoarod as a six-
column folio. But, within the limits
uf its space, the Times even at that
early date, was a newspaper, lt gave
the nows. It was public-spirited, believed in its own town, it had its
opinions, lind expressed them. In
every wny it identified itself with the
progress and prosperity of tho district in which it Wns published, The
Wetaskiwin peoplo recognized thai
Uiey had a livo newspaper—one that
could be depended on to back up Ihe
efforts of Its citizens to make their
tewn a place of importance As u
natural consequence they"were n unit
In supporting it. Also as a consequence, it. did not tuko long boforo
tho two-column folio was too small
for tbe Increased importance tif both
tbo town and the paper. Soon it hatl
to bo enlarged to a seven column.
and, after another interval of continuous growth, two additional
pages had to bo added. Prom two
pages ol six columns to six pages of
seven columns, and nil In Hie space
of threo and a half years! Need there
be ut^t further commentary than tbe
mere .recital of,facts fls to whether
or noj. the Canadian West is the "and
of opportunity for tho properly waii-
ficd newspaper publisher, as well as
for tho farmer, tho rancher, the merchant, |nd the .investor?
* On the inochanicnl side of his training, fow men are better equipped
thnn Mr. Victor C. French, the editor nnd proprietor of tho Wetaskiwin
Titles. Ho is not yot thirty years o!
age, having been born near Oshttwa,
Ont., ln 1875. Ho was educated at
tho F.xotcr schools, completing his
education with a term tit Toronto
College Deciding to leivrn the printing business, he was apprenticed to
John Whito & Son, of the fixator
Times. After completing his term
lio accepted tho foremanship of the
Mitchell Recorder, holding the position for nearly threo yenrs, when he
went to Toronto and obtained employment ln tho well-known job office ol the Monetary Times. Later he
accepted a position ln tho office oi
' McLean Bros., tho well-known trade

the foremanship of tho Clinton New

west to Alberta, and. after, a few
months of prospecting, decided to locate at Wetaskiwin, and established
the Times. As Bnvy be imagined from
the success of his venture, Mr. French
has never had occasion to regret the
call that bade him come west.
To any one who realizes and appreciates, the rapid strides that all
pttrts of the West has made w'ithin
the past few years, it seems certain
that the measure of success that has
attended Mr. French in his newspaper venture in the past will be Surpassed by its .future growth. The
district served by the- Calgary- &.

the West, and Wetaskiwin is evidently destined to- be one of the ■ most

( en.e make the  remark,   "Now  I just
thought you would do that."   But how
. rarely one hears it when the little one

then?   When the  command  has been

fl.iould not tbe parent sny   to the faithful little soul, "Now I just thought you
