AUTHOR OF
••THE LEAVENWORTH CASE."

CHAPTER IX.
I have already mentioned tho man
whom I secretly looked upon as
standing between me and all preferment. Hs was a good-looking fellow,
but ha wore a natural sneer which
for some reason 1 felt to bo always
directed toward myself. This sneer
grew pronounced about this time, and
that was tho reason, no doubt, why
I continued to work as long as I did
ln secret. I dreaded the open laugh
of this man, a laugh which always
seemed hovering on his lips and which
was only held ln restraint by tho
awe we all felt of the major.
Notwithstanding, I made ono
slight move. Encountering tho deputy-coroner, I ventured to ask if ho
waa quite satisfied with tho evidence
collected in the Jeffrey caso.
His Burpriso did not prevent him
from asking my reasons for this
question.
I replied to this effect:
"Because I have a little friend,
winsome enough and subtile enough
to worm the truth out of the devil.
I hear that the girl Loretta is suspected ot knowing more about this
unfortunate tragedy than she is willing to impart. If you wish this
little friend of mine to talk to hor,
I will see that she does so and does
so with effect."
The deputy-coroner . looked Interested.
"Whom do you mean by 'little
friend' and what is her name?"
"I will send her to you."
And I did.
The next day I was standing on
the corner of Vermont Avenue when
I saw Jinny advancing from tho
house ln K Street. She was chipper,
and she waa smiling ln a way which
made me say to myself:
"It is fortunate that Durbin ls not
here."
For Jinny's one weakness ls her
lack of power to hide the satisfaction
she takes ln any detectivo work that
comes her way. I had told her of
this and had more than once tried to
impress upon her that her smile was
a complete give-away, but I noticed
that if she kept it from her lips, it
forced its way out of her eyes, and if
she kept lt out of her eyes, it beamed like an inner radiance from hor
whole face. So I gave up tbe task
of making her perfect and let her
go on smiling, glad that she had
auch frequent cause for It.
This morning her smile had a touch
of pride In It ns well as of delight,
and  noting  this,  I remarked:
"You have made Loretta talk?"
Her head went up and a demure
dimple appeared In her cheek.
"What did she eay?" I urged.
''What has she been keeping back?"
"You will have to ask the coro
ner. My orders were strict to bring
the results of my interview immediately to him."
"Does that Include Durbin?"
'    "Does it include you?"
"I am afraid not."
"You aro right; but why shouldn't
lt Include you?"
"What do you mean, Jinny?"
"Why do you keep your own counsel so long? You have ideas about
this crime, I know. Why not mention
them?"
"Jinny!"
"A word to the wise is sufficient;"
Bho laughed and turned her pretty
faco toward the coroner's office. But
she was a woman and could not help
glancing back, and, meeting my dubious look, she broke into an arch
smile and naively added this remark:
"Loretta is a busybody ashamed of
ber own curiosity. So much there
can be no harm ln telling you. When
one's knowledge has been gamed by
lingering behind doors and peeping
through cracks, one Is not so ready
to say what one bas seen and heard.
Loretta ls ln that box, and being
more than a little Beared of the police, was glad to let her anxiety
and her fears overflow into a sympathizing ear. Won't she be surprised when sho ls culled up some fine
day by the coroner! I wonder If she
will blame mo for it?"
"She will never think of doing
so," I basely assured my little
friend, with an appreciative glance at
her sparkling eye and dimpled check.
The arch little crcaturo started to
move off again. As sho did so, she
cried: "Be good, and don't let Durbin cut ln on you;" but stopped for
the second time when half across the
street, and when, obedient to her
look, I hastily rejoined her, sho whispered demurely: "Oh, I forgot to tell
you somothlng that I heard this
morning, and which nobody but
yourself has any right to know. I
was following your commands and
buying groceries at Slmpklns', when
just as I was coming out with my
arms full, I heard old Mr. Slmpklns
mention Mr. Jeffrey's name and with
such Interest tbat I naturally wanted
to bear what he had to say. Having
no real excuse for staying, I poked
my finger Into a bag of sugar I was
carrying, till the sugar ran out and
I had to wait till it was put up
again. This did not take long, but
it took long enough for me to hear
tho old grocer say that he know
Mr. Jeffrey, and that that gentleman
had come into his shop only a day
or two before his wife's death to buy
—-.andlesl"
The archness with which this was
said, together with the fact itself,
made me her slave forever. As her
small figure faded from sight down
the avenue, I decided to take her
advice and follow up whatever communication she had to moke to tho
coroner by a confession of my own
suspicions and what they had led
me Into. If ho laughed—woll, 1
could stand It. It was not the coroner's laugh, nor even the major's,
that I feared; lt was Durbln'a.
CHAPTER X.
Jinny had not been gone an hour
from tha coroner's office when an opportunity waa afforded for me to
approach that gontleman myself.
With few apologies and no preamble, I Immediately entered upon
my story which I made as concise
and aa much to tho point as possible. I did not expect pralso from
blm, but I did look for some slight
show of astonishment at the nature
of my news. I was therefore greatly
disappointed, when, after a moment's
nuloj; (ens-deration, be carelessly rer
maraea.
"Very good! very good! The one
point you make is excellent and may
prove of use to us. We had reached
the same conclusion, but by another
road. You ask, 'Who blew out the
candlu?' We, 'Who tied the pistol
to Mis. Jeffrey's arm?' It could not
have been tied by herself. Who was
her accessory then? Ah, you didn't
think of that."
I flushed as ff a pail of hot water
had been dashed suddenly over me.
He was right. The cor. ' sion ho
spoke .of had failed to strike me.
Why? It was a perfectly obvious one,
as obvious as that the candle had
been blown out by another breath
than hers; yet, absorbed in my own
train of thought, I had completely
overlooked It. Tho coroner observing
my embarrassment, smiled, and my
humiliation was complete—or would
have been had Durbin been there, but
fortunately he was not.
"I am a fool," I cried. "I thought
I had discovered something. I might
have known that there were keener
minds than mine In^this office—"
"Easy! easy!" was the good-na-
tured Interruption. "You havo done
well. If I did not think so, I would
not keep you here a minute. As It
is, I am disposed to let you see that
in a caso like this, one man must
not expect to monopolize all the
honors. This matter of the bow of
ribbon would strike any old and experienced official. I only wonder that
we have not Been it openly discussed
in tho papers."
Taking a box from his desk, he
opened it and held it out toward
me. A coil of white ribbon surmounted by a crisp and dainty bow
met my eyes.
"You recognize it?" he asked.
Indeed I did.
"It was cut from her wrist by my
deputy. Miss Tuttle wished him to
untie it, but ho preferred to leave
the bow intact. Now lift it out.
Careful, man, don't soil It; you will
see why in a minute." As I held the
ribbon up, he pointed to some spots
on its fresh white surface. "Do you
seo those?" ho asked. "Those are
dust-marks, and they were made as
truly by somo one's fingers, as the
Impressions you noted on the mantel-shelf In the upper chamber. This
pistol was tied to hor wrist after the
deed; possibly by that same hand."
It was my own conclusion but it
did not sound as welcome to me
from his lips as I had expected. Either my nature is narrow, or my inordinate jealousy lays me open to the
most astonishing inconsistencies; for
no sooner had he spoken these words
than I experienced a sudden , revulsion against my own theory and the
suspicions which it threw upon the
man whom an hour before I was
eager to proclaim a criminal.
But Coroner Z. gave me no chance
for making such a fool of myself.
Rescuing th_ ribbon from my hands,
which no doubt were running a little
too freely over its snowy surface, be
smiled with the Indulgence proper
from such a man to a novice like
myself,  and observed quite frankly:
"You will consider these observations as confidential. You know how
to hold your tongue; that you have
proved. Hold it then a little longer.
The cose is not yet ripe. Mr. Jeffrey
ls a man of high standing, with a
hitherto unblemished reputation. It
won't do. ncv boy, to throw the
doubt of so hideous a crime upon so
fine a gentleman without ample
reason. That no such mistake may
be made ai ' thnt he may have overy opportunity for clearing himself,
I am going to huve a confidential
talk with him. Do you want to bo
present?"
I flushed again; but this time from
extreme satisfaction.
"I am oblig for your confidence,"
said I; then, with a burst of courago
born of his good nature, I inquired
wilh duo respect if my little friend
had answered his expectations. "Was
she as clover as   I   said?"  I asked.
"Your little friend is a trump,"
was his blunt reply. "With what we
havo learned through her and now
tlirough you, we can approach Mr.
Joffrey to some purpose. It appears
that, before leaviig the houso on
that Thursday miming, he had an
interview with bis vife which ought
in somo wuy to account for this
tragedy. Perhaps ho will tell us
about it, and perhaps ho will explain
how he came to wander through tho
Mooro lions! while his wifo lay dying
below. At all events wc will givo
blm tho opportunity to do so and,
if possible, lo clear up mysteries
which provoko llie worst kind of conjecture. It Is time. The ideas advanced by tbo papers foster superstition; and superstition is the devil.
Go antl toll my man out llvero that
I am going to K Street. You may
say 'we' if you like," he added with
a humor more welcomo to me than
any serious concession.
Did  I foci Set  up by this? Rather.
Sir. Jeffrey was expecting us. This
was nvidont from bis first look,
though the aSti-mpt he niudo at sur-
iriso wus Instantaneous and very
well feigned. Indeed, I think he was
lu a constant state of apprehension
during these days and that no inroad of tbo police woultl have astonished liim. Kui expectation docs
not preclude dread; indeed it tends
to fostor it,nnd dread was in his
heart. This lie had no power to conceal.
"To whnt um 1 indebted for this
second visit from vou?" ho asked of
Coroner Z., With an admirable presence of mind. "An- you not yet satisfied with what, wc have been uble
to tell you of my poor wife's unhappy end?"
"We aro not," was the plain re
sponse, "There are sumo things ynu
have not attempted to explain, Mr.
Jeffrey. For instance, why you went
to the Moors huiise previous to youi
being culled there by tho death of
your wife."
It wus a shut Hint told; un urrow
j which found Ils mark. Mr. Jeffrey
flushed, then turned pule, rallied and
again lost hrlnsclf in a maze of con-
fUctlng emotions from wliich he only
emerged to say:
"How do you know that I was
there? Have I suid so; or do those
Walls babblo ln llielr sleep?"
"Old walls havo been known to do
this," was the gravo reply. "Whether thoy had anything to say In tho
„_•_  Lu  „_  oraaant uuite iium&tef'e-.
'mat you" were wnere l cnarge you
with being is evident from your owu
manner. May I then ask if you have
anything to say about thia visit?
When a person has died under such
peculiar circumstances as Mrs, Jeffrey, everything bearing upon the
case ls  of Interest  to  the coroner."
I was sorry he added that last sentence; sorry that he felt obliged to
qualify his action by anything savoring of apology; for tbe time spent
in its utterance afforded his agitated
hearer an opportunity not only of
collecting himself but of preparing
an answer for which he would not
have been ready an Instant before.
"Mrs. Jeffrey's death was a
strange one," her husband admitted
with tardy self-control. "I find my-
Bolt as much at a loss to understand
it as you do, and am therefore quite
ready to answer the quostion you
have ao openly broached. Not that
my answer has any bearing upon tho
point you wish to make, but because
It is your due and my pleasure. I
did visit the Moore house, as I cer-
tainlyi had every right to do. The
property was my wife's, and It was
for my interest to learn, if I could,
the secret of its many crimes."
"Ah!"
Mr, Jeffrey looked quickly up.
"You think that an odd thing for
me to do?"
"At night.   Yes."
"Night is tho time for such work.
I did not care to be seen pottering
around there in daylight."
"No? Yet lt would have been so
much easier. You would not have
had to buy candles pr carry a pistol
or—"
"I did not carry a pistol. The only pistol carried thore was tho one
with which my demented wife chose
to take hor life. I do not understand this allusion."
"It grow out of a misunderstanding of the situation, Mr. Jeffrey; excuse me if I supposed you would be
likely to provide yourself with some
means of defense In venturing alone
upon the scene of so many mysterious deaths,"
"I took no precaution."
"And needed none, I suppose."
"And needed none."
"When was this visit paid, Mr.
Jeffrey? Before or after your wife
pulled the trigger which ended her
life? You need not hesitate to answer."
"I do not." The elegant gentleman before us had acquired a certain fierceness. "Why should I? Certainly, you don't think that I was
there at the same time she was. It
was not on the. samo night, even.
So much the walls should have told
you and probably did, or my wife's
uncle, Mr. David Moore. Was he not
your Informant?"
"No; Mr. Moore has failed to call
our attention to this fact. Did you
meet Mr. Moore during the course of
your visit to a neighborhood over
which he seems to hold absolute
sway?"
"Not to my knowledge. But his
' house Is directly opposite, and as
he has little to do but amuse himself with what he can sue from his
front window, I concluded that he
might have observed me going in."
"You entered by the front door,
then?"
"How else?" 	
"And on what night?"
Mr. Jeffrey made au effort. These
questions were visibly harassing bim.
"The night before the one—the one
which—ended all my earthly happi-
ness," he added in a low voice.
Coroner Z. cast a glance at nie. 1
rememl.ei-ed the lack of dust on the
nust of little tables from which the
upper one had been drawn forward
to hold the candelabrum, and gently
.shook my head. The coroner's eyebrows went up, but none of his disbelief crept into his voice as he
made this additional statement:
"The night on which you failed to
return to your own house."
Instantly Mr. Jeffrey betrayed by a
nervous action, which was quite in-
voluntury, that his outward calm
was slowly giving way under a firo
of questions for which he had no
ready reply.
"It was odd, your not going home
that night," the coroner coldly pursued. "The misunderstanding you
had with your wifo Immediately after breakfast must have been a very
serious one; more serious than you
have hitherto acknowledged."
"I had rather not discuss the subject," protested Mr. Jeffroy. Then
as if he suddenly recognized the official character of his interlocutor, he
has-tily added: "Unless you positively request me to do so; in which case
I must."
"I am afraid that I must insist
upon it," returned the other. "You
will lind that it will be insisted upon at the rtHiuest, and if you do not
wish to subject yourself to mush un-
necossury unpleusantness, you hud
better make clear lo us to-day the
cause of thut special quarrel which
to all im fn 1 s and purposes led to
your wife's death."
"I will try to do so," returned air.
Jeffroy, rising nnd pacing the room
in his intense restlessness. "We did
have some words, her conduct the
night before hud not pleased mc. 1
am naturally Jeulous, vilely Jealous,
and I thought she was a lit tic frivolous at the German ambassador's
ball. But I hatl no idea she would
take my Sharp speeches so much to
heart, 1 bad no idea that sho would
care so much or that. 1 should cure
so much. A I' .lu jealousy ls certainly pai'tlmi' -do in a bridegroom,
nnd if her iui:id hnd not alreudy been
upset, she would have remembered
how I loved her and hopefully waited for a reconciliation."
"You did love your wife, then? It
was you und not she who hud a right
to be jealous? I have heard the contrary stated. It is a matter of public gossip thut you loved another
woman previous to your acquaintance wiih Miss Moore; a woman
whom your wife regarded with sisterly affection and subsequently took
inlo heir new  home."
'Mi s Tuttle?" Mr. Jeffrey stop-
i>ed  tn  his    walk    to   llltiir out  thb
ejaculation, "i namire ana respon.
Miss Tuttle," ho went on to declare,
"but I never loved her. Not as I
did my wife," he finished.- but with
a certain hard accent, apparent enough to a sensitive ear.
"Pardon me; it is as difficult for
mo to put these questions as lt Is
for you to hear them. Were you and
Miss Tuttle ever engaged?"
I started. This was a question
which half of Washington had been
asking itself for tho last three
months.
Would Mr. Jeffrey answer It? or,
remembering that these questions
were rather friendly than official, refuse to satisfy a curiosity which he
might well consider intrusive? The
set aspect of his features promised
little in the way of Information, and
we were both surprised when a moment later he responded with a grim
emphasis hardly to be expected from
one of his impulsive temperament:
"Unhappily, no. My attentions
nover wont so far."
Instantly the coroner pounced. on
tho ono weak word which Mr. Jeffrey
had let fall.
"Unhappily?" ho repeated. "Why
do you say, unhappily?"
Mr. Jeffroy Unshod and seemed to
come out of some dream.
"Did I say unhappily?" he inquired. "Well, I repeat it; Miss Tuttle
would never have given me any cause
for jealousy."
The coroner bowed and for the prc-
sont dropped her name out of the
conversation.
"You speak again of tho Jealousy
aroused in you by your wife's impetuosities. Was this increased or
diminished by tho tone of the few
lines she left behind her?"
The responso was long in coming.
It was hard for this man to lie. The
struggle ho made at It was pitiful.
As I noted what it cost him, I began to have new and curious
thoughts concoi-nlng him and the
whole matter under discussion.
"I shall never overcome the re-
morso roused In me by those few
lines," he finally rejoined. "She
showed a consideration for me—"
"What!"
The coroner's exclamation showed
all the surprise he felt. Mr. Jeffrey
tottered under it, then grew pale us
if only through our amazed looks he
had come to realize tho charge of inconsistency to which ho had laid
himself open.
"I mean—" he endeavored to explain, "that Mrs. Jeffrey showed an
unexpected tenderness toward me by
taking all the blame of our misunderstanding upon herself. It was
generous of hor and will do much toward making my memory of her a
gemtle one."
lie was forgetting himself again.
Indeed, his manner and attempted
explanations were full of contradictions. To emphasize this fact Coroner '/.. ex,lainicd:
"1 should think so! Sbe paid a
h' avy penalty for hor professed lack
of love. You believe that her mind
was unseated?"
"Does not her action show  it?"
"Unseated by the mishap occurring nt her marriage?"
"Yes."
"Y'ou really think that?"
"Yes."
"B.v anything that passed between
you?"
"Yes."
"May I ask you to tell us what
passed  between you on this point?"
"Yes."
lie had uttorod tho monosyllable so
often it seemed to come unconsciously from his lips. But be recognized
almost as soon as we did that it
was not a natural reply to the last
question, and, making a gesture of
apology, ho added, with the same
monotony of tone which had characterized these replies:
"Sho spoke of her strange guest's
unaccountable death more than once,
and whenever she did so^ it was with
an unnatural excitement, and in an
unbalanced way. This was so
nol.iceablo to us all thut tho subject
presently was tabooed amongst us,
but though she henceforth spared us
alt allusion to it, sho continued to
talk about the house itself ond of
the previous deaths which hud occurred there till we wero forced to forbid that topic ulso. She wus never
really herself after crossing the
threshold of this desolate house to
be married. The shadow whleh
lurks within its walls fell at that instant upon her life. May God have
mercy—*"
The prayer remained unfinished. His
head which hnd fullen on his breast
sank lower.
lie presented the aspect of ono who
Is quito done with life, even its sorrows.
But men in the position of Coroner
Z. can not afford to bo compassionate. Everything the bereaved man
said deepened the impression that he
was acting a part. To mako sure
that this was really so, the coroner,
wilh just the slightest touch of sarcasm, quietly observed:
"And to ease your wifo's mind—
the wife you were so deeply angered
with—you visited this house, und, at
an hour which you should have spent
in reconciliation with her, went
through Its undent rooms in the
hope—of what?"
Mr. Jeffroy could not answer. Tho
words which came from his lips were
mere ejaculations.
"I was restless—mad—I found this
adventure diverting. I had no real
purposo in mind."
"Not when you looked at the    old
picture?"
"The old picluro? What old picture?"
"Tho old picture In the south-west
chamber. You took a look at that,
didn't you? Got up on a chair on
purposo to do so?"
Mr. Jeffrey winced. But he made a
direct reply.
"Yes, 1 gave a look at that old
picture; got up, as you say, ou a
chair to do so. Wasn't that the
freak of an idle mnn. wandering, ho
hardly knows why, from room to
room In an old and deserted house?"
His tormentor did not answer.
Probably his mind was on his next
line of inquiry. But Mr. Jeffrey did
not tako his silence with the calmness ho had shown prior to the last
attack. As no word enmo from his
unwelcome guest, he paused In his
rapid pacing and, easting aside with
onu impulsive gesture his hitherto
imperfectly   held   restraint,   he     cried

The last great buffalo hunt enjoyed in
the west took place forty years ago and
nearly all the half breed population then
in Manitoba engaged in the chase.
Some of those who took part in that
wild raid on the buffalo are now residing in Alberta and delight to recall the
remembrance of the great hunt with the
various adventures connected with the
occasion. In the fall of 1S64 the buffaloes had congregated in immense
numbers, south of the Turtle mountains
on the great plains east of the Souris
river. The hunting party w».s large and
consisted of men. women and children,
with nearly a thousand carls and hundreds of Indian ponies. As the hostile
Sioux were abroad the parly had to
keep well together while outriders were
stationed at different points for the
purpose of watching the movements of
the buffalo herds and to give notice if
danger should appear.
The buffalo hunter of llie plains possessed a peculiar character; he was a
Skilful rider, a good shot, hardy, strong
and watchful and courageous. He
usually rode a horse possessed of speed,
strength   and   wind.    Like   his   master,
the horse enjoyed the excitement of the
chase and would strain every nerve to
bring his master alongside of the buffalo. In those days the buffalo hunter
was usually armed wilh a smooth bore
muzzle loading gun. His supply of
powder was contained in a horn that
hung from the shoulders by a strap.
Tht hunter kept several bullets in his
mouth for the sake of expedition in
loading. When a drove of buffalo were
to be approached the advance was made
by hunters in tlie greatest of silence, the
leader of the party a little in advance,
liis chief duty was that of restraining
the impetuosity of the more impatient
hunters and get his band as near llie
buffaloes as possible. At length when
the buffaloes commenced to move, the
uneasiness would increase and the herd
started, the leader would shout and
then every horse would spring forward.
All had lo slart, for ne horse could
be restrained; bridles were let go, guns
were brought inlo position and the wild
cavalry bore down on the flying herd.
After the first shots had been delivered,
the hunter loaded his gun while his
horse was at full speed and in firing
care was taken not to raise the breach
higher than the muzzle lest the ball
should roll out, but, as the rider was
generally only a few feet from the
animal that lie wished to shoot there
was no "such need to raise the gun' to the
shoulder. Sometimes a single hunter
would shoot four or five buffaloes during the chase made on a good herd.
The larger the drove the better chance
there was for the hunter as the animals
in advance retarded the progress of
those iii the rear where llie attack was
taking place. Cows and young bulls
were not killed unless by accident or
when game was scarce. On the occasion
of llie great hunt the carts were loaded
With pcmiiiican, tongues am! skins of
buffaloes. When a hunter had dropped
a buffalo at snme distance from liis companions, or from camp, the horse was
tied to the head of the animal while its
master was engaged in skinning the
beast that had been captured. During
the continuance of the great hunt on
the Souris plains which lasted for many
weeks, the food of the hunters was meat
and nothing else. The next season the
buffalo herds had moved far to the west
and never again returned in great numbers so near the Red river.
A   MOTHER'S   PRECAUTION
There Is no telling when a medicine
may be needed ln homes where there
are young children, and the failure
to have a reliable medicine at hand
may mean much suffering, and perhaps, the loss of a priceless life.
Every mother should always keep a
box of Baby's Own Tablets ln the
house. This medicine acts promptly
and speedily, cures such Ills as stomach and bowel troubles, teething
troubles, simple fevers, colds, worms,
and other little ills. And the mother has a guarantee that the Tablets
contain no opiate or harmful drug.
One wise mother, Mrs. Geo. Hardy,
Fourchu, N.S., says: "I have used
Baby's Own Tablets and find them a
blessing to children. I am not satisfied without a box ln the house at
all times." If your dealer does not
keep these Tablets ln stock send 25
cents to The Dr. Williams' Medicine
Co., Brockvllle, Ont, and you will
get a box by mall postpaid.
MEN DRESSMAKERS.
Perls Artl-aim Win, Affect the Lnn-

The originator of the man dressmaker idea was a genius, says Frances
Keyzen, writing from Paris to the Loudon King. He bad a thorough knowledge of women, made a fortune out of
them and left his name to his sous.
Strange stories are told of tbe reign of
Ihis worthy man ovor petticoat land,
of his tyranny and bis sway. His sons
are lightly picking their way where be

The modern dressmaker is a hybrid
creature. He huf. tbe external uppear-
ance of a man, dresses Wn the frock
coat und complementary parts of masculine attire und has tbe language and
walk of a woman. He talks of moussellne de sole and empleeements, volants en forme and gored skirts and
dreams of combinations of color and
material. He is surrounded from morning till nl_,ht wltb women, lives like a
sultan among them and is naturally Impregnated by iheb" 'deas.
Ills study is a sanctum of elegance.
Eighteenth century engravings ornament the walls. The chairs and couches nre covered with old silks In exquisite raininess. It is here he passes his
fingers through his hnlr and con'Doses.
Such ls popular tradition. In plain un-
varnished fact be composes nothing.
The embroiderer embroiders, the weaver weaves, and the season's wares are
brought before him. He selects tbe

Theu commences the work of his army

perhaps a sleeve from one, a skirt from
nnother, and thus Iii builds the models
that the world comes to buy.
Ills vanity is passing strong. Is lt
his fault lf he considers himself a god?
He Is the god of fashion, a sort of Bud-
t.lia with twelve heads—the Immortal

to the country than the members of
that august Institution, tlie French

COUNT PUUSAifl .IjfmjCAli-   1893,  when, largely as tho result of
, itoo close attention to his work, his
(health failed, compelling him to consider change of climate and occupation. It was then that the voice of
the Great West called Mr. Jameson,
and hearkening to it he decided to try
what the p'.'re, bracing atmosphere of
the prairies would do for his health.
He camo to Carman and embarked In
the book and stationery business,
which he still conducts In conjunction
with his newspaper, and which has
grown to considerable proportions. In
1.98, as before stated, he embarked
on his career as editor, establishing
the Leader, Carman's second newspaper, and, without prejudice to any
other members of the Western newspaper fraternity, it may be said that
he has in the interval made an enviable reputation and that his newspaper ls the best, evidence -of his
merit  as   a  newspaperman.
Mr. Jameson's face and figure are
among thoso most familiar at the
conventions of the Western Canada
Press association, at which he is one
of the most earnest workers. It is
not too much to say that such gatherings would hardly seem complete
were ho absent antl the members deprived thereby of his measured speech
and placid wisdom, and the benefit of
his experience as a printer, editor and
publisher. In the ranks of newspaper
workers In the West there are many
men who could belter be spared in
this, the formative period of its life,
than can Editor Jameson. He stands
for and illustrates those principles
and practices that, whether ln the
life of a newspaper, a man, or a
country, tend to the best development
along lines of both material and moral
progress. The personal success that
conies thereby Is not by any means
principal, though undoubtedly it Is a
desirable, result. This success Mr.
fameson has deservedly reaped, but
his true value to Western newspaper-
dom ls In the principles for which
ho contends, and the Influence he
exerts.
J.   W.  JAMESON
Editor and Proprietor of Dufferin
Leader, Carman
Wo shall be measured by what we
might have  been.
Among all the newspapermen of
the Canadian West, few are better
known or more widely respected thun
J w. Jameson, editor and proprietor
of the Dufferin Leader. Both for hi.
personal and professional qualities
Mr. Jameson is deserving of the
esteem with which he is generally-
regarded. His alms and ideals as
an editor and newspaper proprietor
are the reflection and counterpart of
those of his personal life. Thoroughness, reliability, solidity, impartiality,
integrity—these are his dominating
characteristics as a man, aud these
are the distinguishing characteristics
of his paper.
In some respects Mr. Jameson is
rr' a typical Western editor. Caution and deliberation enter moro
largely into his mental make-up than
is the case of most of his confreres
Of enterprise he has no lack, but ln
every case It is subordinate to accuracy and reliability. Change for mere
change sake offers no attraction to
" his mind. Before Mr. Jameson goes
ahead, he wants to be sure that he
Is right His sense of responsibility
to the public is great and ever-preseni
and every editorial judgment he pronounces is made with constant reference to its possiblo effect, not merely
on the fortunes of the political party
to which the Leader gives Independent allegiance, but to the whole
public welfare, and to the future of
the country. Mr. Jameson lias the
habit of regarding every public and
political question as involving morn
or less of a moral Issue, and, as the
ultimate test of their advisability, all
, are tested by this touchstone. The
things that make for civic and polit
Heal righteousness, the things that are
of good report, that are of virtue ami
praise—these are the things to which
Mr. Jameson holds, both as au editor
autl  as a  man.
Mr. Jameson Is a firm believer In
the saving sense and wisdom of the
great Canadian democracy. His faith
in the common people is deep and
abiding. He banks on the deep-seated
sense of right existent In their hearts
antl, though they mako mistakes due
to skilful and wilful misrepresentation of facts and issues, they aro
learning thereby, and slowly educating themselves to a realization of
. their needs and of tlie means by
which they cau be attained. Believing thus, it is no wonder that Mr.
Jameson gives firm adherence to
Liberal principles and general support
to tho Liberal party. His habits of
thoroughness and going to the root of
matters, makes him dissatisfied with
any discussion that doos not go back
to cardinal principles, and hence bis
editorial opinions are of a ripeness
and weight such as are seldom found
among Western weeklies. The same
habits of reliabilty charcterir.es the
Leader's news columns, which show
from week to week a careful sifting,
arrangement and presentation of the
j local happenings. Typographically
1 the Leader enjoys a high position
I among Mr. Jameson's contemporaries.
Taste and care are apparent on evory
page of each issue. That the Carman
, business men appreciate the local
paper ls evidenced by the space they
take to announce their store news.
Taken all in all the Leader is a local
paper of which any district might
well be proud, an Important factor in
the dissemination of the principles
and policy of the political party It
supports, a powerful Influence in local
and munclpal affairs, an enterprising
' and reliable newsgatherer, and an
altogether mechanically excellent
( newspaper.
Mr. Jameson is an example of what
can be done in a new and strange
occupation by a man who brings to
It ability, Industry and common sense.
1 He was 45 years of age when he entered the publishing business and had
no previous experience in the mechanics of printing when he sot out
I' to publish the Leader. Carman al
ready had a good local paper, the
Standard, strongly entrenched In local
favor, and the prospect of entering
the field against so formidable a rival
might well have deterred one of much
more experience in the publishing
business "than Mr." Jameson conld
boast.
Mr. Jameson, like the majority of
Western newspapermen, is an On-
tarlan by birth, his place of nativity being Btoblcoke township, In
Peel County. He was born ln 1853,
and ls thus 51 years of age. When n
mere child his parents removed to
Bruce County, which shares wilh
Huron the distinction of having furnished to Manitoba the bulk of her
Ontario settlers. Mr. Jameson received a sound course of training In
the.public schools of his county, and
at the completion of his school education, being of a marked artistic nature, he took np painting and decorating as his chosen calling, devotins

LAWS ON EATING.
lliiiln at One Time Were Regulated
by Statute On England.
On Nov. 2, 1330, a law came lilts
force in England for the regulation ol
meals and continued to have a place on
■ lie statute book until 1S57. It was de
.'igiied to check the evils resulting from
■in excessive use of costly meats aud
enacted that no one should partake at
nny place or time (except ou specified
festivals nnd holidays to tbe number
if sixteen days a year) of more thau
two courses, each not consisting of
more than two sorts of victuals, either
lesh or fish, with the common sorts of
pottage, and Inexpensive sauce. On
mimed feast days three courses were
lilmvetl.
This law was an extension of an ordinance Issued by Edward II. In 1315
regulating the meals of his nobles, the
"renter of whom were allowed iu addition to two courses of two kiuds of
meat a side dish of one sort
An act of 1303 enacts that servants,
artisans and laborers "shall be served

The Way Ono Conning Ape Served
Thieving   Crow.
Recently a monkey got the better ol
tho common enemy, the carrion crow,
by feigning illness. He was fastened
to a bamboo pole with a running rlnr
When he was on his perch the crows
annoyed him by stealing from his porringer on the ground.
One morning they had been specially
disagreeable. He closed his eyes and
feigned a bad Illness. When his day's
food was brought him the crows descended upon It, and he had scarcely
strength to defend It. By good acting
he managed to capture one of the
crows. To pluck lt alive was the obvious course. Then, Instead of pulling
it to pieces, like the king monkey whom
Kipling and Sir Edward Buck watched
enjoying a similar triumph at Simla,
this monkey tossed the crow into the
air, where Its own companions fell upon it and killed it.
Monkeys certainly have a sense of
fun. Darwin used to spend hours
watching a young female orang outang
in the zoological gardens and was sure
that she had the comic sentiment. She
delighted to put upon her head, like a
cap, a peculiar shaped bowl, which had
a droll effect, and she was sensitive to
the effect which her Joke produced upon the spectators.

MAN AND THE HORSE.
Animal Conqnenl Marked One of *h«
Epoch-, in  Civilization.
The conquest ol the horse by mar
and Its final utilization for nil pur.
poses which are discharged by steam
and electricity today marked one of
the great turning points In the history
of civilization. In the great earth and
sand preglaclal deposits of Europe the
true wild horse is as widespread,
though not ns vailed, as in America.
It is not at this stage associated with
the remains of man, because no preglaclal man except tbe pithecanthropus or trlnil mau of Java bus been
found. In the lnterglaclal or postglacial period the remains of man and
the horse are first found together. The
flrst association occurs ln the middle
of the paleolithic or rough implement
period. The discovery of all the possible uses of tbe horse came very gradually, however, for there Is abundant
proof that man first bunted and ate,
then drove ond flnully rode the animal.
The prevailing drawings of the paleolithic horse represent him as hog
maned, with no forelock to conceal the
low bred Roman nose. A second type
In the Mouthe cave, a bearded horse
with long, bristling mane, long ears
and convex forehead, Is regarded by
M. Riviere as another species. But It
Is not clear to my mind that tbes.
drawings represent more than the
summer and winter coats of the same
animal. Besides these Roman nosed
types, to which Kwart traces the mod-
eru cart horse, there are others with
small heads and flat noses, which
Ewart associates with the Celtic pony
and possibly with tbe origin of tli.
thoroughbred. Other cave drawings,
reproduced by M. Capltan, leave little
doubt flint the ass wns known In Europe. It ls also certain from abundant
evidence In the caves of France thai
there was a larger horse toward the
south perhaps, while the smaller
breeds muy have frequented the coldei
northern regions.—Century.

OI,l Time  Controversies.
Old time controversies were often
vigorous in language. In a controversy
with Milton concerning the divine
right of Kings Salmaslus called his opponent a puny piece of a man, a bo-
munculus, a dwarf not having a human figure, a bloodless being, a creature of skin aud bones, a contemptible
pedagogue fit only to flog boys, a rhinoceros, a hangdog looking fellow. The
great English poet not only answered
In kind, but entered Into an extensive
correspondence with people In Holland
to obtain petty gossip and scandalous
anecdotes concerning his opponent.

A very stout farmer and tils equally

minister.    The one  sat  iu  tho  front

They had to cross a pretty deep ford
in the way.
Arrived at the   liianse  the    farmer
was greeted  by  the    minister,    who
said:
"Dut  why did   you  not  bring Mrs.
Brown  with you?"
"Sho's  thero—In   the  trap   behind."
"No, she is certainly not there."

SHIRT
Made big enough for a big

Has more material in it than
any other brand of shirt in
Canada. Made on the
H.B.K. scale it requires 39#
to 42 yards per dozen, whereas
common shirts have only 32
to 3 3 yards.
That's the reason why the
H.B.K. "Big" Shirt never
chafes the armpits, Is never
tight at the neck or wristbands, is always loose, full
and comfortable and wears
well.
Each shirt bears a tiny book
that tells the whole history
of the "Big" Shirt, and
also contains a notarial
declaration that the H.B.K.
"Big" Shirt contains 3_>J<

Resolution on tha School Bill.
"Cofty of a, resolution passed at a
meeting (if the South Vancouver
Council, March 4th, IDOfl.
"That "representation be made to
the government that ihis council after a careful perusal of the School
Act now before the House, considers
' the same unworkable as regards
'sft-iral School Districts in Municipalities, and begs to submit tlie following;
"1. That the .boundaries of the var-
ijdns bgIiouI districts be made to coniform to the rural municipal boundrics,
"2. That school trustees be elected
in January in each year and that they
"be required to submit an estimate of
their proposed expenditure for one
current year to tlie Council of Education, who ahall if fliey consider
such expenditure necessary, instruct
the Municipal Council to levy a rate
equally over tbe whole of the municipality. The rate to be collected
with the ordinary tax for the current
year and to be of sufficient amount to
"Cover such authorized expenditure
IrVnd that the same be collected upon
the ordinary Assessment Roll of the
iriwiicipality.
' "3. That each Board nf School
.Trustees shall deliver to the treasurer or clerk of the municipality their
vouchers and a balance sheet showing
receipts and expediture at least two
'days "Before the audits of the municipality whenever they arc held.
."4. That no clergyman be a trustee.
"Also that the government should
hand over to the municipalities the
duty of collecting tlie revenue tax, as
at present not half tbe people pay the
same. The collector could then include the tax in liis ordinary notice to
a' person who is .\ ratepayer resident
"iu the municipality and the roatl tax
'collector would collect frum all
lvjto.se names are nut on tlie roll and
Vhat the municipality should hav
bite-third for collecting."
01:.
The mass meeting called by the R.
W. G. Lodge, I.. O. L. pf British Columbia on Tuesday was largely attended and solid in opposition to the
"Separate Schools" clauses. The following resolutions were passed and
telegrams sent lo Ottawa.
'"That whereas, the Autonomy Bill,
now under discussion by llie Parliament of Canada, and having for its
object the formation of the two new
Canadian provinces of Alberta and
Saskatchewan, contains clauses pro-
viiling for llie establishment of separate schools in the aforesaid provinces, and the maintenance o( the
same, in purl by grants of public
money derived from llie sale of public lands wilhif) the area of said provinces.
"He il therefore resolved that the
electors of the city of Vancouver in
mass-meeting assembled, do hereby
cntcr :i most solemn and emphatic
protest against the enactment by the
Parliament of Canada ol ihe said
school clauses for the following reasons:
"1. Thai the enactment of the pro-
poscd Icgislatiop by the Parliament
of Canada is " deliberate and unwarrantable interference with provincial
rights.
"2. That it is an insidious attempt
to force on llie said provinces a system of separate schools when tlie entire question of education should* be
left to the provincial Legislature to
be dealt with as the people of said
provinces desire through their directly elected representatives.
":i. Tlmt the granting of public
money to any religious denomination
for the purpose of teaching the doctrines or tenets of said religion is
wrong in principle and contrary to
the spirit of the constitution.
"I. That the proposed legislation,
if cn-ictcd by the Parliament of Can-
ad;'., v.ill prove a source of continual
discord antl endless rancor, which
will not be conducive to the material
progress and development of the
Car. ulirin West.
"And be it further resolved that
copies of this resolution he sent to
thi' Premier of Canada, R. G. Macpherson, M. P., and the local press,
and to the leader of the Opposition."

A lovely linen blouse may be had
at the cost of three and one-half yards
of linen, if one is willing to spend a
little time and work on it. Draw the
threads to form four-inch squares,
hem stilching each one and working
spiders in the spaces where the lines
intersect. In Ihc centre of each
square embroider a little spring or
some conventional design; the former, however, is prettier. Cut the
front, if your figure is full, on the bias
so that the squares will be turned into diamonds, as this will prove more
becoming. The sleeves and backs
must be similarly biased. For a full
figure four yards must be allowed.

they may not be so voluminous. There
is quite a modification seen across the
fronts, as well as on the hip lines, of
some of the latest examples in spring
costumes, while rather wide yoke

Th.'crown of womanhood is motherhood.
Rut uneasy lies the head thai wears the
crown or anticipates till* coronation, when
there is a lack of womanly strength to benr
the burdens of maternal dignity and duty.
The reason why so many women sink under
the strain of muiheihood is because they
uie unprep ired.
"I unhesitatingly advise expectant ninth-
era to use lit. Pierce's Pavorlte Prescription,"wriic. Mrs.J.W. 0, Stephens, of Mils,
Northumberland Co., Vn. The reason for
this advice is that Dr.Pierce'B Favorite Prescription i.i Llie best preparative for the
maternal function. No matter how healthy
antl stroug a woman . may be, she cannot
use "Favorite Prescription"1 as a preparative for maternity without gain of health
and comfort, llul it is the women who are
not strong who best appreciate llie great
benefits received from ihc u.e of "Favorite
Prescription." For one tiling its use makes
the baby's advent practically painless, It
has in many cases lcdueid days of suffer.
lug to a few brief hours. It h-iii changed
the period of anxiety and struggle into a
time of ease and comfort.
The proprietors and makers of lioctor
Pierce's Pavorlte Prescription now feci
fully warranted In offering to pavfjoo for
any case of I.cucorrlic'H, Female Weakness,
Prolapsus, or Falling of Womb, which th.y
cannot cure, All the Woild's Disptnssry
Medical Association, Proprietors, of buffalo, N. Y.. ask is a fair mid rea on.ihl.
trial of their means of cure.
There is to be a new pose in the
wearing of some new model spring
and slimmer hats. The head bandeau
is so fashioned that the hat really
rests on the very top of the head, so
much so that the whole hair coiffure
i; distinctly visible, which means,
naturally that onels hair has to be exceedingly well and carefully dressed.
Por this style of hat the hair looks its
best when ondulce rather than dressed low in the neck. The headband of
of this hat in the back receives a most
effective and generous trimming of
flowers and silken rosettes or bows,
which must lie very close to the hair.
The crown and front are treated quite
simply. A low sailor shape is one of
the most recent examples of this
smart style, and it is made up of a
fine golden straw braid which strongly resembles a gold military braid in
color, but has a softer suppleness, as
well as a far higher gloss, which Ihc
gold braids lack. This hat trimming
consists of exquisite full bunches of
lilacs, well shaded and mixed in with
fuschia-pink pcau de cygnc. This
combination is to be greatly prized
among the new millinery conception
of contrasts, and to be ranked also
as a decidedly new shade carried out
into silks, ribbons, maliucs, flowers
and feathers.
French millinery emphasizes not
only the fuschia pink just mentioned,
but Ityacinthe-blues, rose lettuce-
greens and tulip-greens, besides old
rose, reddish violets autl very pale
flesh piuks. These, as well as reds,
are carried out into three shades,
sometimes in four, the effect ol which
is artistically studied and combined.
One sees this style of shading in the
new monsseline taffeta ribbons of all
widths, cither plain or moire. Flow
ercrl antl colored ribbons arc showing
a revival of an old style in having
picot edges, which consist of little silk
tufts, fan-shape, autl cither ill solid
colors matching the ribbons or in
variegated colors. Ouly the best ribbons are so edged. Much is to be done
wilh ribbons in the way of gown
trimming, and for that reason both
plain ami fancy ribbons are carried
down by bolts into inure numerous
gradations of widths than ever before.
As fur the sash ribbons, they are veritable works of art in color ami design, and enter into many other uses
besides the purpose of a sash, as, for
instance, a short plaited bolero, sash
matching.

it has a complete alphabetical index,
enabling one lo lind any place on
the map in a moment. Il is sold at
