Thoro are moments which stand out
with intense Ibrce and clearness in
every Ann's lifo. Mine was the one
which followed the reading of these
linos—lines which were meant for a
warning, but which in more than ono
case had manifestly served to open
the way to a repetition of the very
. crime thoy deplored. I felt myself
undor the same fascination. I wanted to test the mechanism; to follow
out thon and there the Instructions
given with such short-sighted minuteness and mark tho result. But. a
sense of decorum prevented. It was
clearly my duty to carry so important a discovery as this to tho
major and subject myself to his command before making the Experiment
suggested by the scroll I had so carefully deciphered. Besides, it would
be difficult to carry out this experiment alono, and with no other light
than that afforded by my lantern.
Another man and more lights were
Influenced by these considerations,
I restored the picture to its place,
and left ths building. As I did so,
the first signs of dawn became visible
in the east. I hod expended three
hours in picking out ths meaning
concealed in the wavy lines of the
old picture.
I was early at headquarters that
morning, but not so early aa to find
the superintendent alone. A group
of men wero already congregated
about him ln his small office, and
when, on being admitted, I saw
amongst them the district attorney,
Durbin and another famous detective,
I instinctively knew whnt matter was
under discussion.
I was allowed to remain, possibly
because I brought news in my face,
possibly becauso the major felt moro
kindly toward me than I thought.
Though Durbin, who had beon speaking, had at first sight of me shut his
mouth like a trap, and even went to
far as to drum an impatient protest
with his Angers on ths table before
which he stood, neither tbe major
nor the district attorney turned an
unkindly face toward me, and my
amiable friend was obliged to ar-
cept my presence with what grace
he could.
There was with them a fourth man,
who stood apart. On him tho general attention had been concentrated
at my entrance and to him it now
returned. H» was an unpretentious
person of kindly aspect. To any ono
accustomed to Washington residents,
he bore the unmistakable signs of
being ono of the many departmental
employees whose pay is inadequate
to tho necessities of his family. Of
his personal peculiarities I noted
two. Ho blinked when he talked, and
stuttered painfully whon excited.
Notwithstanding theso defects he
made a good impression, and commanded confidence. This I soon saw
Was of importance, for the story ho
now entered upon was one calculated
to make me forget my own errand
and even to question my own convictions.
The first intimation I received of
the curious nature of his communication was through the following
questions, put to him by tho major:
"You are sure this gentleman is
raentical with tho one pointed out
to you last night?"
"Very sure, sir. I c»n swear to
I omit all evidence of the defect is
his speech abdve mentioned.
"You recognize  him positively?"
"Positively. I should have pickod
him out with the same assurance, if
I had seen him ln some other city
and in a crowd of as fine-looking
gentlemen as himself. His face mado
a groat impression on me. You see
I had ample time to study it in the
fow minutes we stood so close together."
"So you have said. Will you be
kind enough to ropeat the circumstances? I should like the man who
has just como In to hear your description of this scono. Give the
action, please. It is all vory Interesting."
The stronger glanced inquisitively
ln my direction, nud turned to obey
the superintendent.
"I waa returning to my home in
Georgetown, on tho evening of May
the eleventh, tbo day of the great
tragedy. My wife was ill, and I 'had
been Into town to see a physician
and should have gone directly home;
but I was curious to seo how high
the flood was running—you remember
it was over vhe banks that night.
So I wandered out. on the bridge,
and came upon ths gentleman ubout
whom you have been questioning mo.
Ho was standing all alono leaning
on the rail thus." Hero the speaker
drow up a chair, and, crossing his
arms over its back, bent his heud
down over them. "I did not know
him, but the way ho eyed the water
leaping and boiling in a yellow Hood
beneath was not the way ol a curious man llko myself, but of ono who
was meditating somo desperate deed.
He was handsomo and well dressed,
but he looked a miserable wretch
and was In a state of such complete
self-absorption thnt ho did not notice
me, though I had stopped not llvo
feet from his side. I oxpectcd to seo
him throw himself ovor, but instead
of that, he suddenly rnisod his head
and, gazing straight before him, not
at the heavy current, but at some
vision In his own mind, broke forth
in these words, Bpokcn us I had
never heard words spoken before—"
Here the speaker's stuttering got
the better of him and tho district
attorney had time to say:
"What were these words^ Speak
them slowly; we have all tho timo
there Is."
Ihstantly tho man plucked up
heart and, eying us all Impressively,
was able to sny:
'They woro theso' ;Sho must die!
sho must dlol' No name, but just
the ono phrase twice repeated, 'Sho
must dlol' This startled mo, and
hardly knowing whether to lay hnniis
on him, or to turn ubout ond run,
I was moving slowly away, when ho
drow his arms from tho rail, liko
this, and, still staring into space,
added, ln tho same hard and determined voice, this one word more,
'To-nightI' ; and, whoellng about,
Bossed me with one i.Urilf end jufenl-
ly unconscious look and betook himself toward the city. As he went by,
his lips opened for the third time.
'Which means—', he cried, between a
groan and a shriek, 'a bullet for her
and—' I wish I had heard the rest,
but he was out of my hearing beforo
his sentence was finished."
"What time was this?"
"As noar half-past five os possible.
K was six whon I reached home a
few minutes later."
"Ah he must havo gone to the
cemetery after this."
"I am quite suro of it."
"Why didn't you follow the man?"
grumbled Durbin.
"It wasn't my business. He was a
stranger and possibly mad. I didu't
know wbat to do."
"What did you do?"
"Went home and kept quiet; my
wife was very ill that night and I
hod my own cause for anxiety."
"You, however, road thb papers
next morning?"
"No, sir, nor for many days. My
wife grow constantly worse and for
a week I didn't leave her, not knowing but that overy breath would be
her last. 1 wos dead to everything
outside the sick-room and when she
grew better, which was very gradually, we had to toko her away, so
that I had no opportunity of speaking of this occurrenoe to any one
till a week ago, when some remark,
published in connection with Mrs.
Jeffrey's death, recalled that encounter on the bridge. I told a
neighbor thot I believed the man I
had seon there was Mr. Jeffrey, and
we looked up the papers and ran ovor
them till we come upon his picture.
That settled it, and I could no longer—being free from homo anxieties
now—hold my tongue and tho police
"That will do, Mr. Oclston,"
broke in the major. "When we wont
you again, we will lot you know.
Durban, see Mr. Colston out."
I wus left alone with the major
and the district attorney.
Thero was a momont's silence, during which my own heart beat so
loud that I was afraid thoy would
hear it. Since taking up Miss Tuttle's cause 1 had never really believed in Mr. Jeffrey's innocenze in spite
of the alibi ho hod brought forward,
and now I expected to hear theso
men utter tho same conviction. The
major was tho first to speak. Addressing the district attorney, ho remarked: "This will strengthen your
case very matorially. Wo havo prool
now that Mrs. Jeffrey's death wus
actually determined upon. If Miss
Tuttlo bad not shot her, he would.
I wonder if it wus a relief to him on
reaching his door to find lhat the
deed was done."
I could not suppress my surprise.
"Miss Tuttle!" I repeated. "Is it
so mittakably evident that Mr. Jeffrey did not get to the Mooro house
in time to do the shooting himself?"
The major gave mo a quick look.
"I thought you considered Miss
Tuttle the guilty one."
I felt that tho timo had come to
show my colors.
"I havo changed my mind," said
I. "I can give you no good reason (or this; something in the woman  herself,   1  suppose.      She    does
not look nor act like a criminal.
While not desirous of raising l.y-
self in opposition to the judgment ot
those so greatly my superior in all
respects, I have had this feeling, and
I am courageous enough to avow it.
And yet, if Mr. Joffrey could not
have left the cemetery gates and
reached the Moore house in time to
fulfil all tho conditions of this
tragedy, the case doos look against
the woman. She admits to having
been there when the pistol was fired,
"Unless what? ,You havo something now to tell us. That I have
seon over since you entered the room.
What is it?"
I cast a glance at the door.
Should I be able to finish my story
bofore Durbin returned? I thought it
possible, and, though still upset by
this new evidence, which I could
now see was not entirely in Miss
Tuttlo's favor, I spoke up with what
spirit I might.
"I have just come from spending
another night in tho Mooro house.
All the efforts heretofore mado to
exhaust its secrets have boon founded upon a thoory that has brought
us nowhere. I had another in mind,
and I Was anxious to test it before
resting from all further attenpt to
solvo this riddle. And It has not
failed mo. Ily pursuing a clue apparently so trivial that I allowed it
to go neglected for weeks, I have
somo upon the key to the many mysterious crimes which have defiled
the library hoartstono. And whero
do you think it lies? Not in the
hearthstone Itself and not in the
floor under tho settle; not, in fact,
in tho library at all, but in tho picture hanging upstairs in the southwest chamber." ...
"Tho picture! thot faded-out
skotch, fit only for the garret?"
"Yes. To you and to most people
surveying It, it is just what you say
and nothing more. But to tho initiated fow—pray Heaven they may
have been fow—it is writing, conveying secret instructions. Tho whole
combination of curves which go to
mako up this sketch is a curious arrangement of words Inscribed with
tho utmost cure, in tho smallest of
characters. Viewed with a magnifying glass, tho uncertain outlines of
a shadowy faco surmounted by A
mass of piled-up hair resolve them-
solvcs Into lines of writing, the
words of which ore quito intelligible
and full of grim and unmistakable
purpose. I have read those linos; and
what is more, I have transcribed
them Into plain copy. Will you read
them? They contain a most extraordinary confession; a confession that
was manlfqstly intended as a warning, but whioh unfortunately has had.
vory difforent results. It may explain the death of tho man from
Denver, even lf it cast no light upon
tho other inexplicable features of
the remarkable caso wo nro considering."
As 1 -link. I laid open on the table
bofore me the transcription ol which
I spoko. Instantly the two men bent
over lt,_  When they looked uo. avail..
_,__,_ -uun-i.nances snowed not excitement only but appreciation; ond in
the one minute of triumph which I
then enjoyed, all that hod wounded
or disturbed me in the past was forgotten.
"You are a man in a thousand,"
was the major's flrst enthusiastic
comment; at which I was conscious
of regretting, with very pardonable
Inconsistency, that Durbin had not
returned to hear these words.
Tho major now proposed that we
should go at once to the old house.
"A family secret like this does not
crop up overy day oven in a city «o
full of surprises os Woshlngton. Wo
will hunt for tho spring under tho
closet drawers and see what happens,
eh? And on our way there"—here he
turned to mo—"I should llko to heer
the particulars concerning the little
clue Just mentioned. By tho way,
Mr. Joffrey's interest in this old
drawing is now explained. He knew
its diabolical secret."
This was self-evident, and my heart
was heavy for Miss Tuttle, who
seemed to be so deep In hor brother-
in-law's confidence.
It grow still heavier whon Durbin,
joining us, added his incredulity to
tho air of suspicion assumed by the
others. Through all tho explanations
I now entered Into, I found myself
inwardly repeating with somewhat
forced iteration, "I will not believe
hor guilty undor any circumstances.
She carries tho . look of innocence,
and innocent she must bo proved,
whatever tho rosult may be to Francis Jeffrey."
To such an extent had I been Influenced by the lofty expression
which I had once surprised on her
Had Mr. David Moore been sitting
open-eyed bohind his vinos that morning, he would havo boen much surprised to see so muny of his natural
enemies intrude on his property _rt
so early an hour. But, happily, he
had not yet risen, and we were ablo
to enter upon our investigations
without being watched or interrupted by him.
Our first move was to go in a
body to the southwest chamber, take
down the picture, oxomine It with a
magnifying-glass and satisfy ourselves that the words I had picked
out of its mazy linos were really to
bs "found there. This done and my
veracity established, we next proceeded to the closet where, according
to the Instructions embodied in this
picture, tlie secret spring wos to be
founded by which some unknown and
devilish machinery would be released
in tho library below.
To my great satisfaction the active part in this experiment wos delegated to mo. Durbin continued to
be a mere looker-on. Drawing out
the two large drawers from their
place at the end of this closet, I
set them aside. Thon I hunted for
and found tho small loophole which
wo had been told afforded a glimpse
of the library hearthstone; but seeing
nothing through it, I called for a
light to be placed in the room bo-
I hoard Durbin go down, then the
major, ond finally, tho district attorney. Nothing could stay thoir
curiosity now, not even the possibility of danger, which as yet waa a
lurking and mysterious one. But
when a light shot up from below,
and tha irregular opening before ino
became a loophole through which 1
could catch a very wldo glimpse of
the library beneath, I found that it
was not necessary for me to warn
them to koep away from the hearth,
as thoy all clustered very near the
door—a precaution not altogether uncoiled for ot so hazardous a moment.
"Aro you ready?" I called down.
"Ready!" roso in simultaneous response from below.
"Then look outl"
Beaching for the spring cleverly
concealed in the wall at my right I
vigorously pressed it.
The result was Instantaneous. Silently, but with unerring certainty,
something small, round, and deadly,
foil plumb from the library ceiling to
where the settle had formerly
stood against       the hearth
stone. Finding nothing there but
vacancy to expend lsself upon, it
swung about for a moment on what
looked liko a wire or a whip-cord,
then slowly came to rest within a
foot or so from the floor.
A cry from the horrified officials below was what first brought me to
myself. Withdrawing from my narrow quarters I hastened down to
them and added ono mora white face
to the threo I found congregated in
tho doorway. In tho diabolical ingenuity we had seen displayed, crime
hud reached its acme and the cup ol
human depravity seemed full.
When we had regained in some
measure our self-possession, we all
advanced for a closer look at the
murderous object dangling before us.
Wo found it to bo a heavy leaden
weight painted on its lower end to
match the bosses of stucco-work
which appeared at regular intervals
in the ornamentation of tho celling.
Whon drawn up into place, that is,
when occupying the hole from which
it now hung suspended, the portion
left to protrude would evidently bear
so small a proportion to ils roal
bulk os to Justify any eye in believing it to be tho mate, and the harmless mate, ot all the others.
"It hangs Just whero the sottlo
stood," observed Durbin*. significantly.
"And Just at tho point whero tho
cushions Invito rest, as the colonel
so suggestively puts it in his strange
puzzle of a confession," added tlio
district attorney.
"Replace the old scat," ordered
the major, "and let us make sure of
Ready hands ot onco grasped it,
and, with somo effort, I own, drew it
carofully bock Into position.
"You ssol"  quoth Durbin.
We did.
"Devilish!" came from tho major's
lips. Then Willi u glance at the ball
which, pushed aside by tho scat, now
hung ovor Its edge a foot or so from
the floor, ho added briskly: "Tho
ball has fallen to the full length of
tho cord. If it were drawn up a
■"Wait," I eagerly interposed.
"Let mo see what I cnn do with it."
And I dashed back upstairs and
into the closet of "The Colonel's
With a single peep down to see if
they were still on the watch, I seized
tho handle whoso position I had
made sure of when searching for the
spring, and began to turn; when instantly—so quick was the response—
tho long cord stiffened and I saw
the ball rise into sight above the
"Stop!" called out tho major.
"Let go and press the spring again."
i hastened to obey and, though tho
back of the sottle hid the result from
me, I Judged from tho look and at-
%}XMtit Ot those below .that the   old
i oioiici a calculations nan boeri nindo
with great exactness, and that tho
ono comfortable seat on tho rude
and cumbersome bench had been so
placed that this leaden weight in descending would at the chosen moment strike the head of him who sat
there, inflicting death. That tho
weight should be mode just heavy
enough to produce a fatal concussion
without damaging tho skull was
proof of the extreme care with which
this subtile apparatus hod been contrived. An open wound would hove
aroused questions, but a mere bruise
might readily pass as a result of
the victim's violent contact with tho
furnishings of tho hearth toward
which the shocked body would naturally topple. The fact that a modern
jury had so regarded It shows how
justified he was' in this expectation.
I was expending my wonder on
this and on a now discovery which,
with a very decided shock to myself
I had just made in the closet, when
the command came to turn the
handle again ond to keep on turning
it till it would turn no farther.
I compiled, but with a trembling
hand, and though I (lid not watch
tho result, tho satisfaction I heard
expressed below was significant of
the celerity and precision with which
the weight rose, foot b.v foot, to the
ceiling and finally slunk snugly and
without seeming jar into its lair.
When, a few minutes later, I rejoined those below, I found all, with
eyes directed toward tho cornice,
searching for tho hole through which
1 had Just been looking. It was
next to Imperceptible, so naturally
had it been made to fit with the
shadows of tho scroll work; and oven
after I had discovered it and pointed
it out to them, 1 found dilliculty ln
making them believe that they really looked upon an opening. But
when once convinced of this, the district attorney's remark wus significant.
"I am glad that my name is not
The superintendent made no roply;
his eye had caught mine, and he had
became very thoughtful.
"One of the two candelabra belonging to the parlor mantel was
found lying on that closet floor," he
observed. "Somebody hns entered
there lately, as lately as the day
when Mr. Pfeiffer was seated here."
"Pardon me," I impetuously cried.
"Mr. Pfoiffer's death is quito explained." And, drawing forward my
hand, which up to this moment I
had held tight-shut behind my back,
I slowly unclosed it before their astonished eyes.
A bit of lace lay in mjy pa*(tn, a delicate bit, such as is only worn by
women in full dress.
"Whero did you find that?" asked
tho major, wilh tho first show of
deep emotion I havo ever observed In
My agitation was greater than his
as I replied:
"In tho rough boarding under
those drawers. Some woman's arm
and hand hns preceded mine in
stealthy search after that fatal
spring. A woman who woro lace,
valuable lace."
There was but one woman connected with this affair who rightly answered those conditions. The bride!
Veronica Moore.
Had I any premonition of the astounding fact thus suddenly and, I
may say, dramatically revealed to
us during the weoks I hod dovoted
to tho elucidation of the causes and
circumstances of Mrs. Jeffrey's
death? I do not think so. Nothing
in her face, as 1 remembered it;
nothing in the feeling evinced toward
her by husband or sister, had prepared me for a disclosure of crime so
revolting as to surpass all that I
hod ever Imagined or could imagine
in a woman of such dainty personality and unmistakable culture. Nor
was the superintendent or the district attorney less confounded by the
event. Durbin only trijod to look
wise and strut about, but it was of
no use; he deceived nobody. Veronica
Moore's real connection with Mr.
Pfoiffer's death,—a death which in
soma fnscrutablo way had in so short
a timo led to hor own,—was an overwhelming surprise to evory ono of
Tho superintendent, as was natur-
al, recovered first.
"This throws quito a now light
upon the matter," said ho. "Now
We can understand why Mr. Jeffrey
uttered that extraordinary avowal
overheard on the bridge: 'Sho must
die!* She had como to him with
blood on her hands.','
It seemed Incredible, nay more, unreal. I recalled tho sweet refined faco
turned up to mo from the baro
boards of this samo floor, the accounts I had rend of tho vivacity of
hor spirits and the wild charm of her
manner till the shadow of this old
houso fell upon her. I marveled, still
fooling myself in tho dark, still
clinging to my faith in womankind,
still asking to what depths hor sister had followed her ih tho mazes of
crime wo wore forced to recognize
but could not understand.
Durbin had no such feelings and no
such scruples, as was shown by tho
sarcastic comment which now left his

Cattle Ham. and It- Remedlea Dla-
cneaed br Veterinarian*.
At the recent annual meeting of the
American Veterinary Medical association at St. Louis among the many topics discussed was the cattle manga
problem of the west
O. H. Glover said scab of cattle Is
becoming more and more serious in Colorado. In some localities a loss of 15
per cent is reported. On the range
mange shows its worst symptoms during times when feed is poor and animals are in bad condition. Mr. Clover
pointed out the difficulties of controlling it ln range cattle. Cattle may canity become reinfected after the mange
mites have been destroyed by dipping.
Compulsory dipping before shipment
ls considered an unnecessary hardship
for the cattlemen of Colorado.
Dipping and Hand Treatment.
N. S. Mayo discussed the same problem as it occurs in Kansas. He considered quarantine and dipping as absolutely necessary. The most effective,
cheapest and least Injurious dip ls the
homemade lime and sulphur dip. Coal
tar dips are considered objectionable
on account of their odor, the variation
ln strength, the Irritation which they
cause to the skin and their excessive
cost Most of them cost from two to
three times as much as the lime and
sulphur dip. It was recommended that
tbe dip be made so as to show a slight
excess of sulphur. Cattle should be
dipped twice, ten days apart In tbe
spring, with the dip at a temperature
6t 110 degrees F. Cottonseed oil was
found to be effective as a dip, but was
rather too expensive. Hand treatment,
ln the speaker's opinion, was of little
value. Well fed cattle frequently become affected. Apparent recovery is
always followed by a recurrence of the
scab, and Infection ls hard to detect
during the summer months.
Dynamo oil and Sulphur,
M. E. Knowles stated that hand
treatment with dynamo oil had been
successful with him ln 4,000 cases. To
the dynamo oil about 2 per cent of sulphur ls added. The best method, ln
the speaker's experience, for keeping
the dip warm was by the use of a
caloric transformer as employed by
brewers. The dipping vats in Montana
contain from 10,000 to 30,000 gallons of
water. N. S. Mayo reported that he
had had better results with ordinary
steam pipes than with the caloric transformer, but preferred a tank furnace,
and strongly recommended a dip formula containing twelvo pounds of lime
and twenty pounds of sulphur.
The Great Corn Crop In the West.
There ls substantial agreement on the
part of farmers in the western corn
belt that they have a great corn crop.
The yield ls large in bushels and exceptionally high in quality. Weather
conditions at time of maturing were
almost perfect The corn ripened perfectly and cured thoroughly in the dry,
warm October days, so that its feeding value is much higher than the crop
of 1903 and more of it will be merchantable. Complaint of poor feeding
quality In western corn has been general for several years, but it will not
be beard this time. Some farmers assert that two bushels of 1904 corn are
worth as much as three of the previous
crop for flesh making. These things of
course will have some effect on the
market price, but the extent to wblcb
corn ls fed on farms will bare more.
Old corn ls practically all gone, tht
eastern crop ls short In many places,
and tbe new crop will have a large outlet in market lf lt can he had at a reasonable figure, says the National Stockman.
Contamination •( Milk.
It should be borne in mind that a
great majority of the species of bacteria that gain access to milk do not
possess the power to produce disease
and are not injurious to healthy adults,
although many of them are likely to
produce disorders of digestion ln Infants and Invalids.
Paying special attention to cleanliness In every step of the production
and care of milk will result not only
in clean milk, but is a marked reduction in the number of bacteria it contains, which will greatly lengthen its
keeping qualities. That the desired results may be obtained care must be
constantly exercised. It ls of little
consequence to practice extreme cleanliness ln all of the steps of milk production but one and be filthy about
that one, as this spoils the whole.
Even if the majority of species of bacteria which ordinarily gain access to
milk are not dangerous to health, no
one cares to consume milk ln which
a sediment is found at the bottom lf
it ls allowed to stand for a short time.
Frequently much filth ls allowed to
get Into milk during milking, and many
milkers practice the filthy habit of
keeping the teats wet with milk during
the milking process, yet after it ls
drawn the greatest care ls exercised
that no dust or dirt gain access to lt
Aa far as the final result ls concerned,
all painstaking care in the subsequent
operations ls lost because of the careless work at the beginning during the
process of milking, for if filth once
gains access to milk no amount of care
afterward can remedy the difficulty.

The lack of bile ln the Intestines
brings on indigestion, constipation,*
kidney derangements and a clogging
of the whole digestive and excretory
The liver separates bile from the

It Into the intestines, where it is of
inestimable worth.
For this reason the health of the

functions and liver and kidney disorders. I tried many remedies without
the desired results, until I began the
use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
After taking a few boxes of this medicine I was again enjoying all my former health and vigor, and, ln fact, feeling better than for ten years. Other

Many  People  Weaken  Their System
by the Use of Purgative Medicines.
An Amiens special says:—The court
of assizes after a fortnight's trial has
sentenced fifteen among the notorious
gang of twenty-six malefactors that
operated in France and in foreign
countries under the leadership of Mar-
ins Jacob, to terms of imprisonment
ranging from life long at hard labor
for the ring leaders, to five years. The
others were acquitted. For a number
of years a gang of outlaws, at the head
of which was Marius Jacob, a very
young man, had been committing robberies ln nearly every city of France
and foreign countries, murders occasionally resulting from their operations. Jacob, when arrested, shammed Imbecility, but on the exposure of
the pretence assumed a defiant attitude of defiance and bravado, In which
he was imitated by the others of the
Which Reaches and Cures alt the little
Ailments ef Infants and Children.
Ask any doctor and he will tell you
that the use of purgative medicines
weakens the system, and cannot possibly cure disease. Thousands of people take purgative medicines in. the
spring, and make a most serious mistake in doing so. People who feel
tired and depressed, who find the appetite variable, who have occasional
headaches and backaches, or whoso
blood shows impurities through pimples and eruptions, need a spring
medicine. But they should not dose
themselves with harsh griping purgatives that gallop through tho bowels
tearing the tissues and weakening the
system. A tonic medicine is what is
needed in the spring and Dr. Williams
Pink Pills is the best tonic that science
has yet discovered. They are quietly
absorbed into the system filling the
veins with pure rich, red blood that
carries health and strength to every
part of the body. Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills cure skin eruptions, indigestion,
headaches, nervousness, rheumatism
and all blood troubles. They Improve
the appetite and make depressed,
easily tired men and women cheerful,
active and strong. Mr. James Mc-
Dougall, Little Shtppegan, N.B., says:
"I have used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
as a tonic and blood purifier and have
found them superior to all other medicines."
If you need a medicine this spring—
and who would not be the better of
a tonic after the long dreary In-door
months—give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
a trial. They will send rloh, red blood
coursing through your veins and givo
you the buoyancy of perfect health.

spirits in the New Ontario Fair board,

Port Arthur and Fort William each

In recognition of his services, bestowed upon him the highest honor ln their
gift, the mayoralty.
The respect in which he is held by
his fellow newspaper men is attested
by the fact that he was last year
chosen as the President of the Western Canada Press Association, and
chairman of the Executive Committee
Mr. Osborne married ln 1885, Miss
r.adskls, daughter of Winnipeg's City
Collector. He has been an extensive
traveller over parts of Canada little
known. He has been twice to James
Bay, and has crossed Hudson Bay,
penetrating to the Arctic Circle ln 1899
and 1900, and marching 200 miles
across the northern tundras of Canada.
J. A. 08BORNE.
Editor   and   Proprietor   of  the   Fort
Frances Times.
Mr. Osborne ls a Bowmanvllle boy,
at the public and high schools of which
town he received his education. When
little more than a boy, a little less
than twenty-three years ago—in April
1882,—he came West. On landing ln
Winnipeg, after some three or four
months at various occupations,—like
all true Westerners, he didn't wait for
work for which he had special aptitude or training, but accepted the flrst
thing that turned up, until something
better came along—he entered the employ of the city. At this he stayed for
three years, and in 1885 got into his
natural and proper groove, newspaper
work. He entered the employ of the
Winnipeg Times, then - under the
charge of Mr. Amos Lowe, as a re
porter. But the following year found
him back in the service of the cily
of Winnipeg, this time as assistant tax
collector, a position of responsibility
and importance. For ten years he remained at this post, acquiring during
the Interval a complete knowledge ot
all the intricate bearings of municipal
finance—a knowledge subsequently
to become Invaluable both ln his newspaper work and his public life.
In 1896 journalism again beckoned
Mr. Osborne, and ho set out on two
somewhat important ventures, publishing the Manitoba magazine and the
\..stern Workman, the official organ
of the A.O.U.W. The first named, for
reasons that were attributable to conditions other than those that could be
controlled by Mr. Osborne, was not a
conspicuous success, but the two ventures proved Mr. Osborne's fitness as
a newspaper man and a newspaper
manager. The Brandon Sun was then
looking for the kind of man that Mr.
Osborne had shown himself to be, and
the proprietors ot that paper mado
him a tempting offer to be Its manager.
Mr. Osborne sold out his other ventures, and accordingly moved to Brandon, where his energy and ability
speedily forged the Sun to the front.
Two years later the paper changed
bands, and Mr. Osborne moved to Rat
Portage where he acquired an interest
in the News. This removal was an
Important event in the life of both Mr.
Osborne and New Ontario. He became Interested in the country, and
tue more he learned of its resources
and possibilities the more enthusiastic
he became in his advocacy of its
claims. A little later he moved to Fort
Frances and purchased the Times,
which he still publishes. Later on he
founded the Gazette at Rainy River,
and also a book and stationery business. These various papers have done
much to educate Canadian public
' opinion as to the mineral, agricultural
and Industrial opportunities offered by
New Ontario, and to correct the Impression, prevailing till ft few years
ago, that it was a country of muskeg
and jftckpine, or of rooky, barren
In 1901, at the death of Mr. Wilson,
Mr. Osborne purchased ft controlling
Interest ln his old paper, the Brandon
Bun, which he successfully conducted
until 1903. He still retained his Rainy
River properties, however, the campaign of education conducted by which
had by this time begun to bear fruit.
Population had begun to flow Into New
Ontario. There was need of personal
work if the country in which he had
now so great an interest was to succeed. Mr. Osborne determined, once
and for all, to burn his bridges behind
him, and to tie up his fortune with
New Ontario. So he sold the Brandon Sun and went east

At one of the western army posts in
the days of the Indian fights there was
a young lieutenant, who was careful
to see that the regulations relating to
saluting were faithfully observed. One
day a soldier who was leading an
obstreperous mule to water and had
both hands full employed in the task
was met by the lieutenant. The soldier, who had an occupation which demanded his undivided attention, failed
to salute the martinet, who immediately called him to account for his remissness. "Why do you not salute an officer when you see him ?" he demanded, "You hold this mule and I will,"
calmly returned the man. But the
lieutenant did not Insist, and the regulations were broken.

Mrs. Reginald de Koven, at a dinner

"Women can be very cruel," she said.
"Some of them can be very cunning,
too. Som,e of them can wound you so
dexterously that.befpre you know you
have been wounded, their escape is
made. "Once I saw a yonng woman

She greeted her with a radiant smile.
She Inflicted her wound, and, whilo

"All blind men," he said, "are keen
students of feminine beauty. Let

things, in this matter of women's looks
every woman is mentally judged and
her value reckoned by them, the same
as wines are judged and valued by the
wine expert. "But men Bet a value on

They don't blurt out these values as a
certain Peralan once did at a reception in New York. "The Persian was
of royal blood, and his hostess was
rather amused than horrified when, as
various women were presented to him,
he would say: "This lady is easily
worth $10,000. That dark woman
would fetch about $1,100 in the open
market. I would give $800 for the
blonde young girl in white cheerfully.
The one beside her should sell for $500
anywhere." "The hostess was so
amused that she Bald to the Persian,
with a coquettish laugh: "And what
value, sir, would you set on me?' " I
am not acquainted with the small coin

Not many years ago it was the general belief that cultivated fruits could
not be grown in the prairie region of
Western Canada. While lt was be-
leved that there was a great future
for the country ln the production of
cereals, fruit growing was looked upon
as impossible. For cereal crops Western Canada has already achieved a
record unsurpassed anywhere in the
world, while even ln fruit growing we
are gradually passing the experimental stage. A few enthusiastic hortl
culturists refused to accept the general verdict tnat fruit could not be
grown here. They began experimenting with various fruits, and to their
efforts is due the knowledge that many
fruits can be grown to advantage inj
this country. Great credit is due these
men, who spent their time and money,
ln carrying on this experimental work.'

apples. Another name that deserves

people of Manitoba for the work accomplished in this line, Is that of the
Iato Thos. Frankland, of Stonewall.
Besides small fruits Mr. Frankland
succeeded In growing several varieties
of apples, plums and crabs, and he
also produced a few cherries of the
Morello class. His crowning etfort
was the production of a few pears—
the only fruit of this class ever grown
In Manitoba. The pear tree which
produced tha fruit passed out of existence the same winter that this tireless horticulturist ceased his labors
and passed to his long home. Another man who has been very successful in fruit-growing in Manitoba
is A. P. Stevenson, of Nelson. That>
gentleman has done much in demonstrating that the standard apples can,

farms at Brandon and Indian Head,
much valuable work has been done by
these institutions, not only in testing
varieties of fruit, but also in learning
tho best methods of cultivating and
protecting them. Our grain farmers
early learned that the methods of
cultivation practiced in Eastern Canada would not do for the West. This
ia also true of fruits. When our people learn the best methods ot cultivating fruit crops, the cause of much of
tne lack of success in the past will be
apparent. ,        ,
Most extensive experimental work
In fruit growing has for some years
been going on at Buchanan's nurseries, St. Charles, Man. Here expert-'
ments on a large scale have been
undertaken, not only to discover hardy
varieties of fruits adapted to growing
in Manitoba and the Territories, but
also to learn the methods of cultivation and growing best suited to this
country. Plants and trees have been
tested, not of a few individual specimens, but by the thousand, and a great
deal of valuable information has been,
accumulated. In currants, which are
one of the hardiest kinds of fruit, over
25 varieties have been grown successfully, Including red, white and black
varieties. In raspberries, the number
of varieties tested is even much larger,
and includes red, yellow, black and purple varetles. A few varieties have
fruited well for several years without
any winter protection. It is an easy
matter, however, to bend raspberry
canes to the ground and cover them
during winter. Twenty or more var-
mous crops of fruit, without protection. Bushes requiring protecton can
easily be covered with brush, which
gathers the Bnow and affords an excellent cover. Splendid results have
also been attained with strawberries.
The resuas of experiments with these
fruits would lead to the conclusion
that with proper methods our farmers
should bo able to supply themselves
with an abundance of all these healthful fruits, including currants, gooseberries, raspberries and strawberries.
Blackberries have also been grown at
tbe same nurseries. Mr. Buchanan
exhibited some very fine samples of
blackberries last season, Including one
sample about as large as a man's
thumb. These berries, however, are
generally regarded as too tender for
general cultivation here.
In tree fruits, some very fair cherries
have been produced. The sand cherry
Is regarded by Mr. Buchanan as the
most promising sort for this country.
By careful propagation lt ts believed
that improved vareties wul be secured
wuich will be well worthy of extensive planting. Many varieties of the
Americans and other species of plums
have been tested. The only plums
which have proved hardy (except, ot
course, our native wild plums, Prunus
Nigra) are some of those belonging
to the American species. Many varieties of this species, however, do not
ripen here before the frost comes.
Extensive planting has been done with
apples, Including all the hardy Russian aud Minnesota varieties, and a
number of the trees are promising.
Quite a number of the large crabs or
hybrid apples have reached thefrult-
Ing stage.. Somewhat extensive, experiments have also been carried on
In testing ornamental trees and
shrubs. Mr. Buchanan has recently
Issued a catal >gue which gives a list

Vancouver, B. 0., May 27th, 1905.
As "The Advocatr" said Inst week:
The taxpayers of Vancouver are cooly
asked to hand over holus bolus
to the Mayor aud Oonucil, most
of whom are but serving their
noviciate in tho administration of
municipal nffairs, the sum of
aJ-nosl half a million dollars, in addition 'to the ordinary revenue of the
city, which latter Is estimated to produce this year $701,000, thus aggregating the grand total of $1 168.000—one
million ouo hundred aud sixty-eight
thousand dollars. If this enormous
sum of money is placed ln the hands
of the Mayor and Council what will
thoy do with it.
The Council havo proposed using only
•apart of the loan this year. Eveu so,
'the Oity will bo paying iuterest ou the
•balance—idle money. Wonderful finnu-
k>ieriu# truly!
The mineral output of the Province
for the past year shows, as to the gross
value of the product, a distinct gain
over the preceding year, and. as a mat-
■terof fact, ls the greatest ever made
'-by our mines, except that of 1901. This
gross value for 1904 ls $18,977,359, and
represents an Increase over 1903 of $1,
481,405, or about 8.6 per cent.
An analysis of the returns for the
'whole Province shows, however, that
'this increase has not been general or
equal ln the various districts, or as to
the various minerals produced. The
'placer gold output shows an Increase
of $44,880, which Is mainly attributable
to one district, Atlln, the other districts
' only about holding their own.
-Tlie  districts  showing an   Increased
output this year,  named ln  the  order
- of  precedence,   were   East    Kooteriay,
■the Boundary, the Coast, and- the Slo-
' can,  while  the greatest decrease was
!*n the Itossland camp,  this being accounted for by changes In the management  of  some of the producing eom-
! panics, and  by experiments as to the
iJiest methods of treatment of the low-
grade ores of thi. camp being conducted; these temporarily retarded the output.
The  tonnage   of ore    actually  being
mined   In the Province has perhaps a
more direct bearing upon  the general
business  prosperity of  the local  community than have the values produced,
Inasmuch as It represents the amount
idf-.viw-k actually faking place, and In
I this respect the year MO. shows a very
■ greatly      Increased      output    of    ore,
.'^mounting to 1,4,61,609 tons, an Increase
■over the preceding year of 175,433 tons,
i-or nearly 14 per cent.

Editor of "The Advocate":
In reading over your editorials of the
last two issues of "The Advocate," I am
of the opinion that you have touched
upou some very important points, aud
points that we would benefit by if we
would only stop aud consldor. Ro the
By-laws that are to come before tho
Electors to bo voted on soon, there is
oue thing you did not mention thnt I
think should not be lost sight of and
that is, concerning the City acquiring
its own lighting system aud other
things that revert back to the City nfter
a few years,when the present franchises
expire. If this "Business Council" is
allowed n free baud with this proposition, it looks to me as if we will be
mortgaged to such an extent that when
the time conies for the City to help itself it will simply be helpless, and I
hope every workiugmau in Vaucouver
will consider this thing well beforo he
casts his ballot. To niy mind there are
two points thnt nre well worthy of
observation these are our preseut Council, aud what they hnvo doue and the

At a recent wedding the bride's very
pretty idea was to have her bridal bouquet made In sections and then united
Into one large bouquet. After the wedding, Just as the bride was leaving the
house for the carriage, she separated
the various parts of her bouquet and
Ihrew tliem toward each bridesmaid, as
they gathered about the door to say
good-bye. As each one grasped her
section of the bouquet, she found a
small gift attached, and these gifts
were unique in that they were not all
alike, as usual, and each had some significant meaning. One received a handsome gold thimble, since she was always outspoken In her determination
lo lead a life of single LiessednesB. Another maid found in her section of the
bouquet a tiny gold ring containing a
small solitaire us a hint of the engagement ring she was expecting shortly
to receive. A third bridesmaid received a gold dollar, for she was to be married herself the next month, and this
dollar was to be worn In her shoe according to the old rhyme, that a bride
should wear:
"Something  old,   something new.
Something borrowed, something blue,
And a gold dollar in her shoe,"
for good luck. One maid had a gold
brooch with a spoon laid across It, signifying the house-wifely accomplishment of cookery, to which she had given marked attention at cooking lectures during the previous winter. Still
another bridesmaid found attached to
her share of the bouquet a stick pin
having for a head a pretty pearl penholder with a gold pen and penstock
signifying her successful authorship,
and her literary ability, while the remain ng two had pins which symbol
ized their love of some outdoor sport
or other.
At a recent wedding, Instead of
throwing rice after the happy people,
a perfect shower of rose petals fell upon them as they descended the steps
to take the carriage. This was the
Idea of the girl's mother, and besides
Ihe rose petals, which were brought out
and placed here and there in large
bunch bowls ln the hall when the, bride
retired to don her travelling gown;
there was also a quantity of confetti
made as usual of paper, but resembling
kernels of rice, and these, with the rose
leaves answered every purpose in a
beautiful manner, and no one was injured, as ls often the case If rice ls
thrown. This girl was a southern bride,
and In the old-fashioned garden of her
g'rlhood's home roses grew in riotous
profusion, so that plenty of rose petals
