BY ANNA KATHERINE GREEN
AUTHOR OF
"THE LEAVENWORTH CASE."
Will they eecm as pathetic to the
eye as they did to tho oar in that
room of awesomo memorios und pro-
sent death?
"I Hnd that I do not Iovo you ns
I thought I did. I cannot live
knowing this to bo so. I pray God
that you may forgive mo. Veronica."
Ajrnsp from the flguro in the cor-
nor; thon silence. Wc were glad to
hear  the captain's voico again.
"A woman's heart is a groat mystery," ho rcmarkod, with a short
glance at Ur. Jeffrey.
Jt was a sentiment we could all
who; for he, too, whom sho had alluded ln those fow lines as ono sho
could not love, was i. man whom
most women would consider tho embodiment of all that wu:l admirable
and attractive.
That on. woman so regarded him
Was apparent to all. If over tho
heart spoke in a human fuce, it
spoke In that of Miss Tuttle aa she
watched her sister's husband struggling for composure above tho prostrate form of her who but a fow
hours previous hud been tho envy of
all the fashlonnlilfl young Women In
Washington. I found It hard to fix
my ut tout ion on the next question,
Interesting and vohinhln ob every
small detail wns likely to prove In
case.'my theory of this rrlino should
ever .come to be looked on as the
true one.
"How rami you to search hero for
Ih. wife who had written you this
vague and far from satisfactory farewell? I see no hint in theso lines of
the place whar. sho Intended to take
her  life."
"Not nol" Even this strong man
shrank from this Idea and showed a
vary natural recoil ns his glances
flow about th. Ill-omened room ond
finnlly routed on the tireside over
which so repellent a mystery hung in
Impenetrable shadow. "She snld nothing of her Intentions; notning? I'"t
th. man who came for mo told mo
—h.ra sbe wa. to ho found. I lei wns
waiting at the door of my house. lie
had been on a search for mo up and
down   th.   town.     W*   mat   on th.
stoop."
Tho captain accepted this explanation without cavil. I was glnd h.
did. But to m. tho iilluir showed Inconsistencies which 1 secretly felt it
to b. my .special duty to unravol.
CHAPTER V.
No further opportunity was afforded me that night for studying th.
three loading characters in Iho remarkable drama I saw unfolding be
for. mo. A task wus assigned me
by tho captain which took me from
ths houso, and I missed tho next
acne—th.    arrival    ot    tho  coroner.
lrlMign nis leexn Mignt mn no nusy
over some final tid-blt. Often the
great tears might be seen hanging
unilrled upon  his  withered cheeks.
So much for ono oddity which may
stand as a sample of many others.
Ono glanco at the room Into which
ho ushered me showod why he cherished so marked a disliko for visitors. It was bar. to tho point ol
discomfort, end had lt not been for
a certain qualntness ln th. shape of
tho few articles to be seen there, I
should have experienced a decided
filling of repulsion, so pronounced
was tho contrast between this poverty-stricken Interior and the polished boaring of its owner. He, I am
suro, could havo shown no more clo-
vatod manners If lto had been doing
tho honors of a palace. The organ,
with th. marks of home construction
upon it, was th. only object visible
which spoke of luxury or even comfort.
But enough of these possibly uninteresting details. I did not dwell
on thuiii myself, except ln a vagu.
way and wliilo waiting for htm to
open tho conversation. This h. did
as soon ns ho saw that I had no Intention of speaking first.
"And did you lind any on. In th.
old house?" he asked.
Koepinghim well under my eye, I
replied with Intentional brusqueness:
"Sh. has gone thoro one. too often I"
The star, ho gave mo was that of
an actor who feels thut somo expression of surprise is oxpected  torn him.
"Sho?" h. repeated. "Whom can
you possibly nieun by sho?"
Tho surprise I expressed at this
bold attempt at Ingenuousness was
better simulated thun his,  I hopo.
"You don't knowl" I oxclnlmed.
"Can you live directly opposite •
place of «uch remarkable associations and not interest yourself ln
who goes In and out of its desorted
doors?"
"I don't sit in my front window,"
he peevishly roturned.
I lot my oyo roam toward a chair
•inu'img auspiciously near tb. vary
window hs had designated.
"But you saw tho light?" I suggested.
"I saw that from the door-step
when I wont out to give Rudgo hia
usual live ininiXos' breathing spell
on the sloop. Hut you have not
answored my quostlon; whom do you
mean by the?"
"Veronica Jeffrey," I r.plled.
"Rho who was Veronica Moore. She
has visited this liuuiit-.il houso of

There was likewise a callousness as
regarded his nicco's surprising death
which I considered myself to have
some excuse for noticing.
"You accept hor death very calmly," I remarked. "Probably you
knew her to b. possessed of an erratic mind."
H. was about to bestow an admonitory kick on hi* dog, who had
been indiscreet enough to riso at his
mast.r's first move, but his foot
stopp.d in mid air, in hia anxiety to
concentrat. all hi* attention on hi*
answer.
"I am a man of few sentimentalities," h. coldly averred. "I have
lov.d but one person ln my wholo
life. Why then should I be expected
to mourn over a niece who did not
care enough for mo to Invite ms to
her wedding? It would be on affectation unworthy tho man who has at
last com. to Oil his rightful position
in this community as the owner of
the great Moore ostate. For great it
shall be," he emphatically continued.
"In three year* you will not know
the house over yonder. Despite its
fancied ghosts and death-liko fireplace, it will stand A Number Ono ln
Washington. I. David Moore, proin-
iso you this; and I am not a man to
utter fatuous prophecies. But I

Show of irritation. "But he'll hnv.

"The festivities attendant upon th.
wedding of Miss Veronica Mooro to-
Mr. Francis .lelfrey of this city met
with a startling chock to-dny. As
most of our readers know, tho long-
closed house oo Waverlcy Avenue,
which for nearly a century has been
In possession of tho bride's family,
wns opened for tho occasion at ths
express wish of tho brido. For a
weok tho preparations for this great
function havo been going on. When
at an early hour this morning a line
of carriages drew up in front of tho

MORAL DILEMMAS.
"When   Man   Is   Forvc-d   to   Mnke   m
Choice Betweeu Two Evils,
The rules of logic nre unknown to
tbe mass of mankind, but no one possessed of Intelligence ls unfamiliar
with the process of balancing alternatives. Even the animals use lt when
they choose between two paths or two
actions, as between fight and flight.
Men use it in every dilemma, great or
small, from the choice between the
simplest actions to the issue of life or
death. Is the thing under consideration good or bad? sllal' I votc for A
or B? Shall I act uow or postpone?
Shall I take a risk? Shall I stop or go
on? Shall I change.my course? Shall
I do this or that? In these and other
dilemmas we balance tbo consequences
of one alternative agnlnst the other
and choose what appears to be the better. Facing death Jn two forms, we
choose tho better wny. Balancing alternatives, one will jump from n high
window to the pavement to escape lire.
The moral dilemmas presented to us
aro not nlways limited to n clear
choice between right and wrong. It ls
wrong to steal, but should ono starve
or permit those dependent on him to
starve rather than steal? It ls rlgbt to
tell the truth, but should one tell the
truth when lt involves the betrayal of
his comrades, bis country, his family?
It is wrong to deceive, but would not
one be Justified In deceiving the enemy
who would destroy him? It ls wrong to
kill, but may not one kill ln self defense?
Tho problem of morals presses constantly upon the human race, presenting to each Individual In turn new
trials, dllllcullies and repugnant
choices. IHuch must to a largo degree
choose his own wny to light his own
battle. These arc the facts which confuse our ethical counselors. It is not
possible to act always lu exact harmony wltb our moral code. If one Is
so placed tbat he can save his mother
from starvation only by stealing, bo
will violate the fifth commandment lf
he permits her to starve, aud he will
violate the eighth commandment If he
chooses to steal. Tho choice between
two evils often coincs to the Individual
suddenly and Imperatively. He must
act at once, rendering a decision for
which there is often no precedent
known to blm. The Decalogue, which
he can recite; the philosophical analysis of the evolutions of ethics, do not
aid him.

He was treated by several doctors,

Globe hs acquired the Oakville Express, which he published for seven
years, selling out that paper to take
the general management of the Woodstock Times. Next we find Mr. Bailey
me.hanical manager of the Earnia
Observer. From thence he went
acros:. to Kalamazoo, Mich., and over
twenty years ago came to the Canadian West. He became the editor and
manager of The Mountaneer, a long

deceased town of Nelson, Man. In
those days the Mountaineer was a

was owing to Mr. Galbraith's ill-

Of all tho newspaper men ot the
Canadian West, few aro more Widely
known than E. A. Bailey, of the
Estevan Mercury. To begin with, he
Is an nliliiniiT. Since liu came to
Canada in IMii) he has been almost
continuously engaged In journalism,
It not always with success, at all
times with vigor. Among the fraternity Mr. Bailey will always he known
as having started more papers perhaps than any man in the Canadian
West, and this distinction alone will
entitle him to a place ln this series of
life sketches. But, apart from this
fact, Mr. Bailey has oilier and stronger reasons for professional notice. He
is a man of advanced views, and is
fearless and forcible In their expression. While ho has given a general
support to Liberalism in his numerous Journalistic ventures, Mr. Bailey
Is regarded with something akin to
suspicion by many of tho staid rank
and file of that party, and to many
Conservatives he and his political

The Best  Bread and  PastryTmaking Is
Impossible  Otherwise;'
Are you following the recipes ?
Arc you making bread, cakes, pies,
pastry, according to "Royal Household"
recipes?
If not, you cannot be sure of good
results.
"Why not?" you may reasonably ask.
"Arc not my own recipes, which do
good baking, good enough?
" Why should I adopt new recipes?"
Simply because " Royal Household"
is a new flour requiring new treatment.
This Flour Is Different
from Other Flours
It is different from other flour.
It is better than any flour you have
ever used.
It is the only flour that is equally good
for bread and pastry.
It makes the best of both.
Being different, it must be differently
mixed, kuceded and baked.
Muoh Qulckor
and Easier Baking
By following our recipes you can bake
easier, quicker, better than ever before.
All your own skill and knowledge of
good baking will be made doubly effective, and as a good housewife you will
quickly sec why these recipes are so
good.
The words of a lady of St. John, N.B.,
whose letter we have just opened: "bread
made with it Is lighter, flakier, better
——       ~"»-l
than any I have ever seen" are words
echoed by thousands of the best judges
of good cooking throughout Canada
who nre writing us constantly to say
that they have found the flour just is
represented, and the recipes the best
they have ever tried.
Grocers tell us that the homes where
the flour and the recipes are both used
are the homes where the greatest success
is attained in baking.
Wc wish everyone who uses "Royal
Household" flour to have these recipes.
So send for them.
Send now, and we will not only send
you the recipes, but place you on our
literature list, and mail you whatever
we issue for users of flour.
No woman who values the reputation
of her baking—the success of her bread,
cakes, pics aud pastry—the health of
her family, (depending as it does on
good cookiDg) will use anything except
"Royal Household" flour and in the
" Royal Household" way.
The best baking requires the best
flour und the best recipes,
Wc have both.
We send the recipes free.
Write for the recipes to-day.
Every really good grocer has the flour.

way I thought justified by tho importance of my own theory and ths
evident necessity there was of collecting each and overy point of ovl-
dsnee which could give coloring ta
ths charge, ln the event of this crime
coming to be looked on at headquarters as one of murder.
Observing that a light was still
burning in Uncle, David's domicile, I
crossed to his door and rang ths
bell. I was answered by ths doop
and prolonged howl of a dog, soon
cut short by his master's amiablo
greeting. This latter was a surprise
to ma. I had heard so often of Mr.
Moore's churlishness as a host that I
had expected some rebuff. But I encountered no such tokens of hostility. His brow was smooth and his
smils cheerfully condescending. Indeed, hs appeared anxious to have
me enter, and cast an Indulgent look
at Itudge, whose Irrepressible Joy at
this break in the monotony of his
existence was tinged with a very evident dread of offending his master.
Inlorcstod anew, I followed this man
of contradictory impulses iato ths
room toward which he led me.
Ths tims has now corns for a more
careful description of this peculiar
man. Mr. Moore was tall and ol
that rrlin.d spurnncss of shapo which
suggests the scholar. Yet ho had
-fat ths scholar's oys. On the contrary, his regard was quick. If not
alait, and while lt did not convey
actual malice or Ill-will, It roused ln
tbe spectator an uncomfortable feeling, not altogether easy to analyze.
Ha wore his lion gray locks quite
long, and to this distinguishing
Idiosyncrasy, as well as to his Invar-
labia custom of taking his dog with
him wherever he went, was duo the
interest always ahown In him by
street urchins. On account of his
whimsicalities, ha had acquired the
spit hot of Uncle David among them,
despite his ki i.l in mile, connections
and hia guntlcmmilika hearing. llis
clothes formed no sxenption to tlie
gensrul air of individuality which
marked him. They wore of different
cut from those of other men, nnd in
Ihis as In many other ways he was
a law to himself; notably to In tho
following Instance: lis kept ons day
•f ths year religiously, and kopt It
always in the same way. Ixing
years before, hs had been blessed
with a wife who both understood
and loved him. Hs had nsver forgotten this fact, and ones a year,
presumably on ths anniversary of
her death, lt was his custom to go
to the cemetery where she lay and
to spend tho wholo day under the
shadow of the Btono he had raisod to
hor' memory. No matter what tho
weather, no matter what tlie condition of his own health, he was nlways to be seen in this spot, at the
. hour of Seven, leaning against tho
Shaft on which his wife's namo Was
■_'i"Witten, eating his supper ln tho
""company of his dog. It was a custom hs had never omitted. So woll
known was lt to the boys and certain other curious Individuals in the
neighborhood that ho never lucked
an audience, though woe betido the
daring foot thnt presumed to invnds
tho precincts of the lot ha called his,
or the venturesome voico which offered to raise Itself In gibs or jeer.
He has but to cast a glance at
lludge and on avenging rush scattered the crowd ln a twinkling. But hs
seldom had occasion to rosort to
thl* extreme measure for preserving
the peace and qulot of his solemn
., watch. As a rulo hs waa allowed to
eat his meal undisturbad, and to
pais out unmolested avata bv. rId!<-,.'«

Cu onergy that
^^^       great  dog and   sent
TTn hanging head and trailing
dll,    to   his    own    special  slecping-
plnco  under   th.   li_bl_.     "Ila-   oho run
upon a ghost in thoso dismal apartments? You interest me greatly. I
did not think she woul_l over have
the pluck to visit this house again
aftor what happened at her wedding."
".She has had the pluck," I assur*
ed him; "and what is mors, sho has
had enough of it not only to re-enter
the house, but tu re enfor it alone.
At least, such Is tho present Inference. Had you been blessed wltb
moro curiosity and made more frequent uso of tho chnlr so convenient*
ly placed for viewing tho opposite
house, you might havo been In a position to correct tliis Inference. It
would help the pollco materially to
know positively thut sho had no
companion in her fatal visit."
"Fatal?" ho repealed, running his
finger inside his neckband, which suddenly seemod to huvo grown too
tight for comfort. "Can it he that
my niece has boon frightened te
death in that old placo? You alarm
mo."
lis did not look alurmed, but then
ho was not of an Impressible nature.
Yet he was of tho sumo human clay
as tho rest, of us, and, If ho knew no
more of this occurrence than ho tried
to make out, could not bs altogether impervious to what I had to say
next.
"You have a right to be alarmed,"
I assent.-. "Sho was nut frightened
to death, yet is she lying dead on
tho library floor." Then, with o
glance at the windows about mo, I
added lightly: "1 take it that a pistol-shut over thero could not bs
heard in (his room."
He Nauk milier melodramatically
into his scat, yet his fiico and form
did nut loSO that sudden assumption
of dignity which I had observs in
him ever since my entrance Into ths
liuu.se.
"I am overwhelmed by this nows,"
he n-iiiiii-kill. "Shu has shut herself?
Why?"
"1 did not suy that sho had shot
herself," I carefully repeated, "Yet
the be i'i point that way und Mr.
Jeffrey    accepts    the    suicide theory
without question,"
"Ah,  Mr.  Jeffrey Is thoro!"
"Must certainly; hs wus sent for at
onco."
"And Miss Tuttle? Sho came with
him uf course?''
"Shu came, but nut with him. Sho
is very fond uf her sister."
"I must go over at once," he
cried, ha|iiiig ngnin tu bis feet und
looking about for his lint. "It is
luy duty   lo   make  liim  feci at  home;
in short, to  to put tho house at
their disposal." Hero he found his
hat and placed it on hia head. "Tho
property Is inino now, you know,"
lio pulltoly explained, turning, with
a keen light In his gray eye, full upon me and overwhelming uie with tho
grand air of a man Who haB como
uncxpoctodly into his own. "Mrs.
Jeffrey's father was my younger bro-
thor—the story ls an old and long
one—nnd tho property, which in all
jiiBtlco should huvo been divided between us, went entirely to Mm, But
ho was a good fellow in tho main
and saw tho injustice of his father's
will as clearly an I did, and years
ago made ono on his own account
Le.]iioathlng 1110 tho wholo estate in
caso hs loft no issue, or that lssuo
died. Voronlca was his only child;
Voronlca has died; therefore the old
houso Is mine and all that goes with
it,  all that goes wilh It."
There was the miser's gloating In
this repetition of a phrase sufllclont-
lv expressive In itself, or rather the
We ary
m^^, .fjino to Its dregs
—, . I do not know and I
p^_-Mt care. What concerns mo is
that tho responsibility of a large
fortune has fallen upon me most unexpectedly and lhat I havs pride enough to wish to show myself capable of sustaining the bunion. Resides, they may be tompted to do
some mischief to tho willln or floors
over thero. Tho polico respect no
man's property. But I am determined thoy shall respect mine. No rip-
pings up or toarings down will J
allow unless I stand by to suporvlss
the job. I am master of the old
homestead now and I moan to show
it." And with a last glanco at the
dog, who uttered tho most mournful
of protests in reply, ho shut the
front door and botook himself to the
other side of tho street.
As I noticed his assured bearing as
ho disappeared within tho forbidding
portal which, according to his own
story, had for so long a time been
shut agnlnst him, I askod myself if
tho candle which I had noticed lying
on his mantol-shelf wus of the same
make and size as thoso I had found
in my lata investigations in ths
houso ho was then entering.
CHAPTER VI.
Next monVng iho city was ln a
blaze of excitement. All tho burning
quo:-.: Ions of the lour—the rapid mob-
ilbat ion of tho army and the prospect of a speedy advanco ou Cuba —
wero forgotten in tbu ono engrossing
topic of young Mrs. Jeffrey's death
and the .awful circumstances surrounding it. Nothing else was ln
any one's mouth and but little else
ln any one's heart. Hor youth, her
prominence, hor union with a man of
such marked attractions as Mr. Jeffrey, tho tragedy connected with her
marriage, thrown now Into shadow
by tlio still moro poignant tragedy
which had so suddenly terminated
her own lifo, gave to tho affair an
Interest which for those llrst twenty-
four hours did not call for any further heightening by a premature suggestion of murder.
Though 1 was tho hero of tho hour
ar.d, aa such, subjected to an infinite
number of qiiostions, I followed the
lead ol my superiors In this regard
and carsfully refrained from advancing my theories  beyond the < >11v i	
one of suicide. Tlm uiomen» for solf-
explullatlon mm not ripe; I did nuf
stand high enough In thu confldenca
of tho mujur, or, I muy suy, of the
lii'iit'-iiniit of my own precinct, lo
risk the triumph I anticipated ultimately by a in 'iinil uro expression ol
opinion*
1 had an enemy at hoadquartcrs ;
or,  rnthor, ono of.tho men there had
always appeared peculiarly Interested in showing mo up In the worst
light. Tho iimue of this man was
Durhin, and it, wns he who had uttered something like a slighting remark
whon on that first night I endeavored to call tha cnptnlu's attention to
somo of the small matters which had
offered themsolves to mo ln tho light
of clues. Porhups it waa tho prospect of surprising him sums day
which made ni* so wary now as well
aa so alert to fill my mind with all
known facts concerning tho Jeffreys.
Ono of my flrBt acts was to turn over the files of the Stur and reread
the following account of the great
wedding. As lt is a sensational description of a Sensational event, I
shull mnkn no apology for tho headlines which startled nil Washington

Tho terror which instantly spread
amongst tho guests shows the hold
which superstition has upon all
tlm ses of humanity'. Happily, however, an unseemly panic was averted, by tho necessity which all felt
of preserving sonic sort of composuro
till the ceremony for which they had
R-Sombled had been performed, Kor
simultaneously with this discovery of
death in tlie library there had come
from nl'Oio tho Sound of tho approaching bridal procession, and cricp
were hushod, and heating hearts ra-
strained, as Miss Mouro's charming
face and exquiBltc figure appeared between tho rows of flowering plants
with which tho stalrcaso was lined.
No ne.d for the murmur to go about,
'Spare the brldo! Let nothing but

Conference two GdSt.y wars involving
terrible loss of liTe, especially ln the
case of that now in progress in Manchuria, have imparted a powerful im-
Iietus to the peace movement. Three
cases of successful arbitration hnve
illustrated tho feasibility of the
bloodless method of settling international difficulties.
Bareness von Suttner can speak
with authority on the subject of
war, for she is the daughter of a
great Austrian general, Field Marshal Count -irons von Kinsky. When
a girl sho was betrothed to n young
Austrian officer who fell in battle,
and her grief turned her thoughts in
the direction of writing against war.
It was not until her youth was passed that she married the author,

CANADA HAS RAW MATERIAL.
New Fuel Hade of Refuse Pulp Is Colter
Than Coal.
A new fuel successfully tested at
Munci, Ind., has been invented by
Jacob Smith, a glass worker. It is
said to possess more hent units pop
pound thpn cither coal or wood. If
can bo manufactured and sold at a
profit for half the cost of coal, and
it docs pot smoke except when a
strong draft is used. Its success ns
a fuel for domestic uses was determined some time ago, but not until
recently, when it was used' beneath
an engine boiler, wap its valuo for
manufacturing demonstrated. The
fuel is made largoly from fho refuso
of the pulp mills, of which there aro
a numbor about Muncio. Each mill
turns out thousands of tons of refuse annually. The refuse, a combination of soda and lime, is mixed
with crude oil, and the finished product resoinblcs putty. It may bo cut
with a spado and thrown Into a furnace or beneath a boiler. No kindling Is necessary, for a match touch-
od to it will light readily, the material burning with an intense heat.
Thoro aro no clinkers, and the ashes
remaining after the lire hns burned
down may bo mndo Into a new compound for which Mr. Smith hus another uso.
A bushel basketful of the fuel be-
nonth a sixteen horsepower engino at
a Muncio factory kept steam up for
eight hours. It is manufactured as
a plasterer makes hh mortar. It is
patented as Siniti jol in the United
States.      i

Advising; a   Joctor,
Dr. Blank—maybe I'd better call blm
Dr. Proteld, since to advertise his real
name might be to do violence to tho
ethics of the medicai.professlon—woll,
then, Dr. Proteld is himself a sufferer
from rheumatism, which for a long
time has resisted all his skill. The
oilier day a big Irishman camo bubbling up bis steps and was admitted
by an attendant, who ushered him into
the office and called the doctor from
another part of the house. Presently
the doctor came limping in just as the
caller had dono.
"Well, my mnn," said he, "what is
thp matter with you?"
"Begorra, sor," the Irishman answered, "I'd first like to know phwafs the
matter wid you."
"I bave rheumatism," the physician
admitted.
"Well, then," said the visitor, rising
from bis chair with muny a grunt and
groan ond laboring painfully toward
the door, "tbey's two av us that ought

Animal  Swimmers.
The elephant is a good swimmer, and
(he wild animals of the cat family, the
tiger, the panther, tbe jaguar and others, do not hesif-itu to cross hikes and
rivers. On the other hand, the domestic cat shrinks from immersion and
drowns quickly. The nostrils of some
small animals are so placed as to render breathing very difficult wheu tbey
are In the water. Among these are
mice and rabbits, which will drown
Without sinking beneath the surface.
Hals are excellent swimmers.
Almost all birds cxc.pt those which
are distinctly natatorial are nearly
helpless In water. Small birds In particular have P0 power of propulsion,
and, though tbey do not sink, they
drown quickly. Even many species of
waterfowl rise from the water with
difficulty or not at all when their
wings nre wet. After it sea gull plunges
and returns lo the surface it stretches
Its wings so that they may bo dried by

1107 gument with him. He has read much
and thought much on questions of
public government, and has reache:!
conclusions there anent, and from
week to week ho goes ahoad, proclaiming with no uncertain sound
those conclusions, nnd showing the
Haws and imperfections of existing
conditions, and tho coincidence of his
views with those of any political party being apparently a matter of supreme Indifference to him. His is a
voico crying In the journalistic wil
derness. His is fte temperament
that delights ln leading a forlorn hope
in the realm of thought. He is the
editorial knight errant of the Canadian West.
A dread of that inconsistency
which is the bete noir of the average
public man has no part or lot In the
makeup of Brother Bailey. In his lime
he has strongly advocated things he
formerly strenuously opposed, and
v|ce versa- Ho believes to the full In
the old Arab proverb, that only the
foolish and the dead neyor change
their opinions. He doos not believe
that conversion is a monopoly of the
realm of morals, but that it should
extend to all matters In which experience is throwing new light and time
affords more Information. Ono th'ns
he believes thoroughly—that after
opinions aro honestly formed they
should be fearlessly advocated.
Hence, he hews to the lino, and lets
the chips fa|l where they may.
Brother Bailey has prejudices, and
sqme of them he keeps well oileil nnd
availabie for (nstant use. He has a
profound distrust of any form of autocracy. He believes in the dislrlhu-
tlqn rather than the centralization of
all forms of power. Re koeps a wary
eye pn corporations and "vested interests," and ll|es to nrms instantly
whenever they attempt any invasion
of popular rights. He ts Ue champion of the many against tho few, of
the ciasses against tho masses. In
short he is t\ democrat to the hilt.
with h|s sympathies irrevocably linked wl|h those of tho common people.
In his long years of public service he
may fqr a season havo gone after
strange gqdB—have called those he
Ind to follow the nnrc: lizahle, the
visionary, and the I'toplan, but none
can accuse him of lack of devotion
to the general gqotl, nqr of courage
In advocating the views ho held.
Prlqr to his entering newspaper
wqrk, Mr. Balloy hnd an Interesting
career. Ho |s of Lancashire birth,
Saving boon born at Preslon In Do
cember 1838. Ho camo to Cnnndn at
tho age of sixteen, in isr>4. He
started In to learn t'io printing business, learning tho case, and setting,
typo at Slmcoe and Ouolph. After
live yea._ he joined tho 100th (Prince
of Walos) Royal Canadian Hcimenl,
raised for tho suppression of tho Indian mutiny, but tho mutiny being
quelled before tho regiment's arrival at Indln, did service in London,
Gibraltar and Malta. Mr. Bailey
served In all theso places, and was
promoted to the rank of sorgonnt, for
three years holding positions on the
garrison and regimental staffs. He
bought his dischargo whilo thorcgl
ment was at Malta, married (In'04)
and spent three years ln England. He
joined and was on the staff of the
1st Manchester Royal Volunteers, nntl
was drlllmaster of the Industrial
School at Swinton
During his military career Mr.
Bailey had by no means forgct'.enhis
■craft. While in Gibraltar he was mechanical superintendent of the Gibraltar Chronicle, a small dally published by the officers of the garrison.
ln tho fall of 1809 Mr. Bailey returned ts Canada, and at onco secured a position as foreman of the
St. Mary's Argus and Kincardine Review. A littlo later he wns prsof-
reader for the job department of the
Toronto Globe, and for nearly four
years contributed articles to several
Toronto   papers.    After   leaving tho
province on the most successful tour
it ever made.
As may he judged by the foregoing
Mr. Bailey is a pronounced optimist.
Ho has a boundless belief in both the
present and the future of the Canadian Northwest, and has certainly sacrificed much ln contributing to its development—developments which he
hns done much to promote by his pen
and on tho platform. Ho ls one of the
most familiar figures at press conventions. His pugnacity and pertinacity
In debate being only equalled by his
unfailng r-oo.l humor.

people experience is commonly the effect
of impure blood. Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery not only cleanses the
blood of impurities, but it increases the activity of the blood-making glanda, and it
enriches the body with an abundant supply
of pure, ricli blood.

7» ro.de red linen nothing: in the
world could be nicer than parasols pf
the same material.
Matching these in every particular
are unmade blouses of linen. No mention can possibly be made of spring:
fashions without much enlargement on
the topic of embroideries. In every department of dress, one finds It plays a
principal part, and the new matytals
by th;; yf\rd stimulate hand work with
almost as attractive results in finish
and detail. Single motifs of all kinds,
sorts and aliases 3 re sold as soon as
they are shown because of their new
perfections. Even last year when it
was generally thought that the height
of excellence had been attained, we
were given no auch variety of combln
atlons or originality of treatment. The
seed lace su much used last spring a^
well as during the winter ls encrusted
ln embroidered linens, crash or cotton

TRIMMINGS.
Many of the trimmings by the yard
ate designed to give the effect of French
robe gowns when made up with the
wheer and beautiful fabrics which can
be worn In summer. If one only has
the knack of knowing how to pose
these motifs and medallions., wonderful
results may be obtained. Here It is that
the genius tn dressmaking is Rhown
But even the woman not naturally gifted need not despair, for this, like many
another talent, may be cultivated. Leaf
shapes of embroidered linen, very heav
ily worked. We, set on a frame of fine
point de Gene, this being especially
pi ctty when made up with sheer and
while  batiste.
As new as anything Is a handsome
pattern of embroidered batiste in wide
bands. Groups of little tassels at short
intervals give It a decidedly original
note. This may also be had In flounc
.ng. in fact almost all the beautiful
patterns this year come in sets. There
Is usually an all-over design, an insertion and wide flouncing; the insertion
Is not without its own pretty finish on
either side, though a tiny line of French
velning where it ls joined to the material ia always an effective manner of In-
letting.
One of the most lovely patterns Is of
floral character, roses of embroidered
net being set into the material ond
combined v. lth seed embroidery.
