"I acknowledge having boen in the ' but  the    ordinary  course  nt    events
Moore    house    and even having been | had not been  foUowed,  aad    it was
ln its southwest chamber, but not at
the time supposed. It was on the
previous night." He went on to relate how, being In a nervous condition and having the key to this old
dwelling ln his pocket, ho had i
amused himself by going through its
dilapidated interior. All of this made
a doubtful Impression which waa
greatly emphasized when, In reply to
the inquiry aa to where he got the
light to see by, he admitted that he
had coma upon a candle in an upstairs room and mado use of that;
though he could not remember what
he had" done with this candle afterward, and looked dazed and quite at
sea, till the coroner suggested that
he might have carried it Into the
closet of the room where his fingers
had left their impression In the dust
ol the mantel-shelf. Then he broke
down like a man from whom some
prop Is suddenly snatched and looked
around for a seat. This was given
him, Rhlle a silence, the most dread
ful I ever experienced, held every one
there in check. But he speedily rallied and, with the remark that he
was a little confused in regard to the
incidents of thet night, waited with
a wild look in his averted eye for
tl.   coroner's next question.
Unhappily for him It was in continuation of the same subject. Had
he bought candles or not at the grocer's around the corner? Yes, he had.
Before visiting the house? Yes. Had
he also bought matches? Yes. What
kind? Common safety matches. Had
he noticed when he got home that
the box he had just bought was half
empty? No. Nevertheless he had used
many matches in going through this
old house, had he not? Possibly. To
light his way upstairs, perhaps? It
might be. Had he not so used them?
Yes. Why had ho done so. if he had
candles in his pocket, which were so
much easier to hold and so much
more lasting than a lighted match?
Ah, he could not say; he did not
know; his mind was confused. He was
awake whon he should have been
asleep.   It was all a dream to him.
The coroner became still more persistent.
"Did you enter the library on your
solitary visit lo this old house?"
"X believe so."
"What did you do there?"
"Pottered around.   I don't remember."
"What light did you use?"      .
"A candle, I think."
"You must know."
"Well, I had a candle; it was ln   a
"What candle and wlat candelabrum?"
"The same I used upstairs, of
"And you can not remember   whero
you loft this candlo and candelabrum
when you finally quitted tho house?"
"No.   I     wasn't     thinking    about
"What were you thinking about?"
"The rupture with my wife and the
bad name of the house I was in."
"Oh!     and this was    on    Tuesday
-    "Yes, sir."
"How can you prove this to us?"
"I can not."
"But you swear—"
"I swear that it was   on Tuesdav
night, the night Immediately preccd-
the one when—when my wife's death
robbed mo of all earthly happiness."
It was feelingly utterod, and several faces lightened; but the coroner
repeating: "Is there no way you con
prove this to our satisfaction?" tho
shadow settled again, and on no
head more perceptibly than on that
of the unfortunate witness.
It was now late In the day and
the atmosphere of the room had become stifling; but no one seemed to
be conscious of any discomfort, and
a general gasp of excitement passed
through the room when the coroner,
taking out a box from undor a pile
of papers, disclosed to the general
gaze tho famous white ribbon with
Its dainty bow, lying on top of the
fatal pistol.
That this special feature, the most
Interesting one ot all connected with
this tragedy, should have been kept
so long ln reserve and brought out
just at this time, struck many of Mr.
Jeffrey's closest friends as unnecessarily dramatic; but when tho coroner, lifting out the ribbon, remarked
tentatively, "You know this ribbon?" we were more struck by the
Involuntary cry of surprise which
roso from some one In the crowd
about the door, than by tho look
with which Mr. Jeffrey eyed tt and
made the necessary reply. That cry
had something moro than nervous
excitement in lt. Identifying tho person who had uttered it as a certain
busy little woman well known in
town, I sent an officer to watch her;
then recalled my attention to the
point the coroner was attempting to
make. He had forced Mr. Jeffroy to
recognize the ribbon as the one
which had fastened tho pistol to his
wlfe'B arm; now he asked whether, I
ln his opinion, a woman could tio
such a bow to her own wrist, and
when in common justice Mr. Jeffrey
was obliged to say no, waited a
third time before ho put tho general
suspicion again Into words: -1
"Can not you, by somo means ar
some witness, prove to us that lt
was on Tuesday night and not on
Wednesday you spent tho hours you
spoak of on this scene of your marriage and your wife's death?"
The hopelessness which more thnn
once had marked Mr. Jeffrey's features ilnce the beginning of this
inquiry, reappeared with renewed
force as this suggestlvo question fell
again upon his ears; and he was
about to repeat his pica of forget-
fillness when tho coroner's attention

his ear by one of the detectives. In
another moment Mr. Jeffrey had been

You can Imagine every one's surprise, mine most of all, when this

only ut the request of Mr. Monro
hiin-elf tbut he was now allowed the
privilege ot appearing belore tnle
coroner and jury.
1 speak of it as a privilege because
he himself evidently regarded it as
»uch. Indued, his whole attitude and
homing as he addressed himself to
the coroner showed that he was there
to be looked at and tbat he socretlv
thought lie wus well worth this attention. Possibly some remembrance
of the old days, In which ho had
gone in and out before those people
in a garb suggestive of penury, made
the moment when he could appear bo-
fore them in a guise more befitting
his station one of inculculablo Importance to him.
At all events, ho confronted us all
with nn aspect which openly challenged admiration. When, in answer
to the coroner's Inquiries, it became
his duty to speak, be did so with a
condescension which would hnvo called up smiles if the occasion had been
one of less seriousness, and his connection with it ns unimportant ns he
would huve it appear.
What he said was in the wav of
confirming the last witness' testimony as to his having been at the
Moore house on Tuesday evening. Mr.
Moore, who was very particular as
to dates and days, admitted that
the light which he had Been in a
certain window of his ancestral home
on the ovening when he summoned
the police wns but tho repetition of
one he had detected thero the evening before. It wns this repetition
which had alarmed him and caused
him to break through all his usual
habits and leave his home at night
to notity the police.
"The old sneak!" thought I. "Why
didn't ho tell us this before?" And I
allowed myself a fresh doubt of his
candor which had always seemed to
me somewhat open to question. It
is possible that the coroner shared
my opinion, or that he felt it incumbent upon him to get what evidence
he could from tho sole person living
within view of the houso in which
such ghastly events had taken place.
For, without betraying the least
suspicion, and yot with the quiet
persistence for which men in his responsible position nro noted, he subjected this suave old man to such a
rigid examination as to what he had
seen, or had not seen, from his windows, that no possibility seemed to
remain of his concealing a single fact
which could help to the elucidation
of this or any other mystery connected with the old mansion.
He asked him if ho hnd scon Mr.
Jeffrey go in on tho night in question; if he had ever seen anv one _ro
in thero since tho wedding; or even
if he had scon any one loitering
about the steps, or sneaking into
tho rear yard. But the answer was
always no; these same noes growing more and more emphatic, and
tho gentleman more and moro impenetrable nnd dignified ns tho examination went on. In fact, he was
as unassailable a witness as I have
ever heard testify before any |urv.
B_yond the fact already mentioned of
his having observed a light in the
opposite house on the two cvenines
In question, he admitted nothing. His
life In the little cottage was so on-
grossing—he hnd his organ—his dopr—
Why should he look out of the window? ITod it not been for his u.ual
habit of letting his doer run the pavements fnr a quarter of an hour beforo finally locking up for the night,
he would not huve seen as much as
he did.
"Have vou anv stated hour for doing this?" the coroner now asked.
"Vcs; half-past nine."
"And wus this the hour when you
saw that light?"
"Yes, both times."

house at a few minutes before ten tr»

greater assistance In the disentanglement of a mystery so affecting the

nicely attuned to tho occasion, was
admirable; so was his manner; but I
mentally wrote him down as ono I
should enjov outwitting if the opportunity ever cuine my way.

repetition of his former emphatic   assertion as to tho prosenco of light IA

decided confirmation,    I   looked   to
seo   some open recognition of    this,
when    suddenly,   and  with a persistence understood onlv by the    police,
I the coroner recalled Mr, Jeffrey   and
I asked liim what  prop, he hud to odor
that his _ visit  of Tuesday had    not
been repeated    the   next night    ami
that he wns nnt In tho building when
j that fatal trigger was pulled.

evidently  exerting  himself  to     reenll
' the name which so "persistently eluded his memory,  putting    his hand to
his head and showing tlie utmost confusion.
"I can not givo you one," ho finally stammered. "There is a man who
could toll—if onlv I could remember
his namo." Suddenly wilh a loud crv
which escaped him Involuntarily, he
gave a gurirlimr laugh and we heard
the namo "Tallmitn!" leu]) from his
I shnll nover forget the murmur o.
suppressed excitement which erected
us as I reappeared before coroner and
Jury accompanied by the gentleman
who had been called for in such peremptory tones a short time before.
Mr. Jeffroy, who had attempted to
rise at our entrance, but seemed to
lack tho ability, gavo a faf.it. sinile
as Tallman's good-natured face appeared; and tho coroner, feelinc. perhaps, that somo cords aro liable to
break if stretched too strongly, administered tho oath und mudo tho ne
cessary 'inquiries with as little delay
as was compatible with tho solemnity of tho occasion.
The rosult was aa absolute proof
that Mr. Jeffrey had been near Soldiers' Home as late as seven, which
was barely fifteen minutes previous
to tho hour Mrs. Jeffrey's watch was
stopped by her fall in tho old houso
on Wavorly Avenuo. On tho distance
betwoon tho two places could not bo
compassed ln that timo, Mr. Jeffrey's alibi could be regarded as established.
When wo were all rising, glad of an
adjournment which restored freo
movement and an open Interchange
of speech, a sudden check In the
general rush called our attention
back to Mr. Jeffrey. Ho was standing facing Miss Tuttlo, who was still
sitting in a strangely immovable attitude in her old place. Ho had just
touched her on the arm, and now,
with a look of alarm, he threw up
tho veil which had kept hor faco hidden from all beholders.
A vision of loveliness greeted us,
but that was not all. It was an unconscious loveliness. Miss Tuttlo
had fainted away, sitting upright ln
hor chair.
Mr. Jeffrey's examination and Its
triumphant conclusion created a
great furor in town. Topics which
had hitherto absorbed all minds were
forgotten In the discussion of the
daring attempt which had been mado
by the police to Ox crime upon one
of Washington's most esteemed citizens, aud the check which they had
rlchtly suffered for this outrage
What might be expected next? Something equally bold and reprehensible,
of course, but what? It wus a question which at the next sitting completely filled the inquest room.
To my great surprise, Mr. Jeffrey
was recalled to the stun 1. Ho had
changed since the night before. He
looked older, and while still handsome,—for nothing could rob him of
his regularity of feature and extreme
elegance of proportion,—showed littlo of tha spirit which, in spite ol
the previous day's depression, had
upheld him through its most trying
ordeal and kept his eye bright, if
only from excitement. This was fact
numbor one, and ono which I stored
away in my already well-furnishod
Miss Tuttlo sat in a less conspicuous position than on the previous
day, and Mr. Moore, hor uncle, was
not there at all. ^
Tho testimony called for revived an
old point which, seemingly, had not
been settled to the coroner's satisfaction.
Had Mr. Jeffrey placed tho small
stand holding the candleabrum on
tho spot where it had been found?
No. Had he carried into the house,
at tho time of his acknowledged visit, the candles which had been afterward discovered thero? No. Ha had
had timo to think since his hesitating and unsatisfactory replies of the
day beforo, and ho was now in a position to say that whilo he distinctly remembered buying candles on his
way to thp Mooro house ho had not
found them In his pocket on getting
there and had been obliged to make
use of the matches he always carried
on his person in order to find his
way to the upstairs room where ho
felt positive he would find a candlo.
This gave the coroner an opportunity to ask:
"And why did you expect to find a
candle there?"
Tho answer astonished mo and, I
have no doubt, many others.
"It was tho room in which my wifo
had dressed for the ceremony. It had
not been disturbed since that time.
My wife had little ways of her own;
ono was to complete her toilet by using a curling iron on a little lock
sho wore over her temple. When at
home sho heated this curling iron in
tho gas jet, but there being no gas
in the Moore house, I naturally concluded that she had made uso of a
candlo, as tho curl had been noticc-
ablo under her veil."
Oh, tho weariness in his tonel I
could scarcely interpret it. Was he
talking by rote, or Was ho utterly
done with life and all its interests?
No ono besides myself seemed to note
this strange passivity. To the mass-
is he was no longer a suffering man,
but an individual from which information was to be got. Tho next
question was a vital one.
He had accounted for one candle in
the houso; could he account for the
one found in the tumbler'or for the
one lying crushed and battered on
the closet floor?
Ho could not.
And now we all observed a chango
of direction in the inquiry. Witnesses wero summoned to corroborate
Mr. Jeffrey's statements, statements
which it seemod to bo the coroner's
pre.-cnt wl.-h to establish. First came
tho grocer who had sold Mr. Jeffrey
tho candles. He acknowledged, much
to Jinny's discomfort, that an hour
a.'ter Mr. Jeffrey had left the store,
ho had found on the counter the
package which that gentleman had
forgotten to take. Poor Jinny hod
not stayed long enough to hear his
story out. Tho grocer finished his
tostimony by saying that immediately upon his discovery he had sent the
candles to Mr. Jeffrey's house.
This the coroner caused to be em-
phaslzod to such an extent that we
were all convinced of its Importance,
llut as yot his purposo was not evident save to those who were more In
his confidence thun myself.
The other witnesses woro men from
Bauc'ior s, t**ho had acted as'wUiters
at th. time of the marriage. Ono of
thom testified that Immediately on
Miss Moore's arrival ho had boen
sent for a candle and a box of matches. The other, that ho had carried
up to her room a largo candleabrum
from the drawing-room mantel. A
pair of curling tongs takon from the
dressing table of this room was next
produced, together with other articles of toilet use which had been allowed to remain thoro uncared for,
though they wore of solid silver and
of beautiful design.
Tho next witness was a member of
Mr. Jeffrey's own household. Chloe
was her name, and hor 'good black
face worked dolefully as sho admitted that tho packages of candles
which tho grocer boy had left on tho
kitchen table, with tho rest of the
groceries on tho morning of that
dreadful day when "MIsbus" killed
herself, was not to bo found when
sho came to put tho things away.
She had lookod and looked for it,
but It was not there.
Further inquiry brought out the
fact that but one other member of
tho household was in tho kitchen
when theso groceries woro delivered;
and that this person gavo a great
start wtun tho buy shouted out,
"The candles thero wero bought by
Mr. Jeffrey," and hurried over to
the tablo and handled tho trackages.
although Chloo did'nol "see hor carry
any ot them away.
"And who was this person?"
"Miss Tuttle."
With tho utterance of this name
tho veil foil from tho coroner's intentions and tho purpose of this petty but prolonged inquiry stood revealed. It was to all a fearful and
Impressive moment. To mo it was
as painful os it was triumphant. I
had not anticipated such an outcome
when I put my wits to work to
provo that murder, and not suicide,
was answerable to young Mr. Jeffrey's death.
When the murmur which had hailed
this startling turn in tho inquiry
had subsided, tho coroner drew a
doop breath, and, with an uneasy
glance at the jury, who, to a man,
seemed to wish thoinselves woll out
ol this job, he dismissed the cook
and summoned a iresh witness.
Hor namo mado the people stare.
"Miss Nixon."
Miss Nixon! That was a name
well known In Washington; almost as
well known as that of Uncle David,
or oven of Mr. Tallman. What could
this quaint ami characteristic little
body havo to do with this case of
doubtful suicide? ' A word will explain. She was the person who, on
the day before, had made that ioud
exclamation when the box containing
the ribbon and the pistol had been
disclosed to the jury.
As her fussy littlo figure camo forward, somo nudgod and some laughed, possibly because hor bonnet wos
not of this year's style, possibly |.e-
t-uuse her manner wus poroullar and
os full of oddities as her attire. But
they did not laugh long, for the Utile lady's look was appealing, if not
distressed. The fact that she wos
generally known to possess ono of
tho largest bank accounts in the
District, mado any marked show of
'disrespect toward her a matter ot
poor judgment, if not of questionable
The box in the coronor's hand prepared us for what was before us. As
lie opened it and disclosed again the
dainty white bow which, as I havs
belore said, was of rather a fantastic make, the whole roomful of eager
spectators craned forward and were
startled enough when ho asked:
"Did you ever seo a bow liko this
Her answer camo in tho faintest of
"Yes, I havo ono liko It; very like
it; so llko it that yesterday I could
not suppress an exclamation on seeing this one."
"Where did you get the one you
havo? Who fashioned it, I mean, or
tied it for you, 11 that is what I
ought to say?"
"lt was tied for   mo by—Miss Tuttle.    Sho is a friend of mine, or was
—and a very good one; and one day
whilo watching me struggling with a
piece    of   ribbon,    which I   wanted
made into a bow,  she took it from
my hand and tied a knot for which
I wns very much obliged to her.    It
was very pretty."
"And liko this?"
"Almost exactly, sir."
"Have you that knot with you?"
She had
"Will you show it to tho jury?"
Heaving a sigh' which sho had
better have suppressed, sho opened a
littlo bag sho carried at hor sido und
took out a pink satin bow. It had
bi en tied by a deft hand; ond more
thun one pair of eyes fell signllieant-
ly at sight of it.
Amid a silence which was intense,
two or three other witnessos wero
i ailed to prove that Miss Tuttle's
skill in bow-lying was exceptional,
and was often mado use of, not only by membors of-her household, but,
as in Mi.-s Nixan's case, by outsiders; tho special style shown in the
ono under consideration being the
During all this, I kept my eyes on
Mr. Jeffrey. It had now become so
evident which way tho coroner's in-
quiilcs tended that I wished to be
the lirst to note their effoct on him.
It was less marked than I had antic-
ipated. The man seemed benumbed
by accumulated torment and started
at the witnesses filing before liim os
if they wore part of some wild phantasmagoria which confused, without
enlightening him. When finally several persons of both sexcB wero
brought forward to prove that his
attentions to Miss Tuttle had once
boon sufficiently marked for an announcement of their engagement to
bo daily looked for, ho let his head
fall forward on his breast us il the
creeping horror which had seized him
was too much for his brain if not for
his heart. Tbe final blow was struck
when tho man whom 1 had myself
soon in Alexandria testified to the
c__n.-ri.tu. ruin which had occurred in
Atlantic City; an additional point
being given to it by tho repetition
of some old conversation raked up
for the purposo, by which an effort
was made to provo that Miss Tuttle
found it hard to forgive injuries oven from those nearest und dearest to
her. Thls^ subject might have been
prolonged, but somo of tho jury objected, and the time being now ripo
for tho great event of the duy, the
namo of the lady herself wus called.
After so significant a preamble, tho
mere utterance ol Miss Tuttle's name
had almost the force of an recusation; but the dignity with which she
roso calmed nil minds, and subdued
overy expression of feeling. 1 could
but marvel at her self-poise and
noblo equanimity, and askod myself
if, ln the few duys which
had passed since first the
murmur of something moro serious than suicide had gone about,
she had so schooled herself for all
emergencies that nothing could shako
hor self-possession,—not even the suggestion that a woman of her beauty
and distinction could bo concerned in
a crimo. Or had she within herself
some great source of strength, which
sustained her in this most dreadful
ordeal? All Were on watch to see.
When the veil dropped from belore
her features and she stepped into tho
full sight of the expectant crowd, it
w^u^uittho beuuty of her tg-cc, not-

I was no exception to tho rest.
Though I had exerted myself from
the first to bring matters to a climax—but not to this one—I experienced such a shock undor tho steady
gazo of her sad but gentle eyes, that
I found myself recoiling before my
own presumption with something liko
secrot shame till I was relieved by
the thought that a perfectly innocent
woman would show moro feeling at
so false and cruel a position. I felt
that only ono with something to conceal would turn so calm a front upon men ready, as sho knew, to fix
upon her a groat crime. This conviction steadied me and made me
less susceptible to her grace and to
the tone of her quiet voice and tho
far-away sadness of hor look. Sho
faltered only whon by chance she
glanced at tho shrinking figure of
Francis Jeffrey.
Hor name which sho uttered without emphasis and yet in a way to
arouse attention sank Into all hearts
with more or less disturbance.
"Alice Cora Tuttlo!" How In days
gqno by, and not so long gone by,
either, those three words had aroused tho enthusiasm of many a gallant
man and Inspired the toast at many
a gallant feast! Thoy had their
charm yet, if the heightened color
observable on many a chock there
was a true index to the quickening
heart below.
"How aro you connectod with the
deceased Mrs. Jeffrey?"
"I am the child of her mother by a
former husband. We were half-sisters."
No bitterness In this statement,
only an infinite sadness. Tho coroner continued to question her. Ho asked for an account of her childhood,
and forced her to lay bare the nature
of hor relations with her sister. But
little was gained by this, for their
relations seemed to have been of a
sympathetic character up to the time
of Veronica's return from school,
when they changed somewhat; but
how or why. Miss Tuttle was naturally averse to saying. Indeed sho
almost refused to do so, and the tor-
oner feeling his point gained more by
this refusal than by any admission
she might have mado, did not press
this subject, but passed on to what
interested us more; the various unexplained actions on her part which
pointed toward crime.
His first Inquiry Was in reference
to the conversation held between her
and Mr. Jeffrey at the time he visited her room. We had listened to his
account of it and now we wished to
hear hers. But the cue which, had
been given her by this very account
had been invaluable to her, and her
testimony naturally coincided with
his. We found ourselves not an inch
advanced. They had talked of her
sister's follies and she had advised
patience, and that was all sho could
say on tho subject—all she would
say, as we presently saw.
The coroner introduced a fresh top.
"What can you tell us about the
Interview you had with your sistei
prior to her going out on the nighl
of her death?"
"Very little, except that It differed
entirely from what is generally supposed. She did not come to my
room for conversation but simply to
tell me that she had an engagement.
She was in an excited mood but said
nothing to alarm mo. Sho even
laughed when she loft me; perhaps to
put mo off my guard, perhaps because she was no longer responsible."
"Did she know that Mr. Jeffrey
had visited you earlier in the day?
Did sho make any allusion to it, 1
"None at all. She shrugged hot
shoulders when I asked if sho was
well, and anticipated all furthei
questions by running from the room,
She was always capricious in her
ways and never moro so than at that
moinont. Would to God that it had
boen differentl Would to God that
sho had shown herself to be a suffer!
ing womanl Then I might huvd

would have been averted."
The coroner favored the witness
with a look of respect, perhaps because his next question must necessarily bo cruel.

At  One  Time  It  Was  Stated   In   the

It was a common custom ln the
eighteenth century, especially during
the reign of George II., to Insert notices of marriage stating the bride's
portion ln contemporary periodicals
and newspapers both in England und
Almost every number of the Gentleman's Magazine at that time contained several of these records, of which
the following, ln 1731, ls a specimen:
"Married, the Revd. Mr. Roger Walua,

eighty, with whom he ls to have £8,-

Sometimes the notice merely describes the bride as a lady with n
"good portion" or a "genteel fortune."

Collingwood, Out., Feb. C—(Special)—Mrs. Thos. Adams, who moved
here about two yeai-B ago from
Burke's Falls, Ont., one of the many
Canadians who once had Bright's
Disease and are now strong and well.
Like all the others she was cured by
Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"I was eight months an invalid,"
says Mrs. Adams, "and no one can
tell what I suffered. My doctor said
I had Bright's Disease and Sciatica,
but I got no relief from anything he
gave me. At last a friend of my husband Induced me to give Dodd's Kidney Pills a trial. I had no faith ln

The   Victims   Left   Weak,   Nerveless
and a Prey to Oeadly Diseases.
La grippe, or influenza, which
sveeps over Canada every winter, is
probably the most treacherous disease known to medical science. The
attack may last only a few days, Dut
the deadly poison in the blood remains. You are left with hardly
strength enough to walk. Your
lungs, your chest, your heart and
nerves are permanently weakened, and
you fall a victim to deadly pneumonia, bronchitis, consumption,
rheumatism, or racking kidney troubles. Dr. WilliamB' Pink Pills nover
fail to cure the . disastrous after effects of la grippe because they purify
the blood and sweep away its poisonous germs. Every dose makes new,
warm, rich red blood, which brings
health and healing to every part of
the body. This is proved in the case
of Miss Dorslna Langlols, of St. Jerome, Que. who says: "I had a severe
attack of la grippe, the after effects of
which left me racked with pains in
every part of the body. My appetite
completely failed me; I had severe
headaches, was subject to colds with
the least exposure, and grew so weak
that I was unable to work at my
trade as dressmaker. I tried several
medicines without the slightest success until a drug clerk advised me to
take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I acted upon his excellent' advice, and the
pills rapidly and completely cured
me. My strength returned, the headaches and cough disappeared, aiAi I
am again enjoying my old-time
health. I am satisfied that if sufferers from la grippe will use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills they will speedily
recover from those after effects which
makes the lives of so many people a
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure all the
common ailments due to weak and
watery blood, such as anaemia,
headaches, sideaohes, Indigestion,
neuralgia, rheumatism, sciatica, nervousness, general weakness and the
special ailments that growing girls \
and women do not like to talk about'
even to their doctors. But only the
genuine pills can do this, and you

There is a great deal In the way you
wash your fuce. Instead of washing
it downward, as 99 out of every 100 do,
it should be washed upward, and gentle friction given to the parts most
likely to wrinkle. Spraying the face
with soft hot water at night ls good.
The best plan of all ls to nourish the
body with good, wholesome food, which
will ln Its turn nourish the skin and
fill out the face ln the parts where

Editor of the Cartwrlght Review.
Courage, as a personal quality, is
one of the dominating characteristics
of the peoples of new countries. Physical courago was to a certain extent indispensable to overcome the
obstacles, difficulties and disappointments incident to pioneer life and the
forming of new settlements. When
this necessity had passed, owing to
the establishment of modern institutions, and the preservation of law
and order and respect of the rights
of property, the exercises of this
quality of courago was transferred
from the realm of physical protection
to that of commerce. Men calculated
chances coolly, and, knowing the
risks Involved, took them with a quiet
daring and without a prevision of ultimate results that would astound one
used to the strictly safe business
transactions of older communities.
And, moreover, these risks were
taken by men who elsewhere would
havo been considered boys—who in
Europe and in the East would bo in
school or college, or occupying a
junior clerk's position, the highest responsibility entrusted to whom would
be the charge of the firm's petty cash.
But in the West in tho early days all
men were young—all young in heart,
and nearly all young in years—and
people have long since become a>
customed to seeing mere youths
charged with, and officially performing, the duties of conducting mercantile enterprises of provincial importance.
As this series of life sketches of
Western Canadian editors has abundantly shown, no branch of Western
activity has attracted to it a greater
proportion of energetic and capable
young men than the newspaper business. Men have been publishers at
an age at which elsewhere they would
havo hardly been out of their apprenticeship, and editors when, on eastern or European*papers, they would
hardly have been entrusted to write
a local Item. J. J. Young, M. L. A„
Walter Scott, M. P., Ernest MacMil-
Ian, W. F. Kerr, and many another
example of "the boy editor" will occur to" the minds of all familiar with
the annals of Western newspaperdoin.
To tho roll of these boy editors should
be added the name of Robert J. C.
Stead, of the Cartwrlght Review. He
established the Review when.he wis
but eighteen years of age. His actio-i
would have been a bold one If he had
had the professional and mechanical
equipment of other boy editors who
had graduated from the case or from
tho reporting room. But Mr. Stead
had no such qualifications, and consequently, to the outside onlooker,
his action must have savored strongly of the courage of Ignorance. All
that Mr. Stead could put into the business, at the time he established, was
the capital necessary to instal a
modest plant—a plant which, though
small, was selected with care, and under the expert advice of the Toronto
Type Foundry Company—and unlimited enthusiasm. The experience Mr.
Stead now possesses, both In the mechanical and publishing departments,
came later, and was acquired by the
lessons learned and the mjstakes
made ln the running of a country
Mr. Stead Is as near being a Manl-
toban by birth that he doos not personally remember his birthplace, all
his recollections being thoso of the
Prairie Province. He was born, however, in Lanark County, Ont, in 1880.
his pan .ils removing to Manitoba,
and settling near Cartwrlght, when ho
was two years old. Here tho future
editor grew towards man's estate,
getting his education at the Cart-
wright school, and, later, taking a
course In the Winnipeg Business College. This mercantile training proved
Invaluable when he desldrd, without
previous experience, to go Into the
publishing business, and Baved him
from many of the errors Into which
men more mature both ln years and
professional attainments have fallen.
It Is an open secret that, lf Mr.
Stead had his choice, he would have
preferred a purely literary life to the
more strenuous hurly-burly of journalism. He is one of the Canadian
poets whose work Is read by an increasing circle of readers. Ho hia
had the love of versifying ever since
he was a child, his flrst poetry having been published in a Winnipeg
daily before he was-in his teens. His
poem, "The Empire Builders," which
was published in the Canadian Magazine ln November last, attracted general attention, and was reprinted in
many well-known papers, notably the
Literary Digest. It is among the possibilities that Mr. Stead may yet develop into tho representative poet of
the Canadian prairie country. In the
meantime he is a publisher in u
Manitoba country town, and has built
up a business that Is ln every way a
tribute to his ability. And, at a re
nun-liable age, has achieved a degree
of success of which he has every
right to *"» nroud,

If the efforts of certain parties are
successful, the farmers of Canada
will have to face a very unjust and
burdensome tax. A movement ls on
foot to have fence wire, which has
for a number of years been admitted
into the country duty free, put on the
dutiable list The grades sought to
be affected are galvanized iron or
steel wire No. 9, 12 and 13. Practically none of these are made in Canada,
and since enormous quantities are
used each year in replacing primitive
rail structures, and enclosing prairie
farms, the injury that a duty would
impose upon the rural community
could not be readily estimated.
Since the admission of wire duty
free, Canadians have enjoyed the
benefits of cheap fencing of a very
desirable kind. This has not only
vastly improved the appearance and
value of hundreds of farm houses, but
lt has added Immensely to the comforts of winter travelling over roads
that were formerly very often impassible on account of snow blockades. To
put a check upon this sort of Improvement by a tax that could work only
Injury to the rural population without benefit to any other class ot people would be Indeed a serious matter.
Besides working an Injury to the farmer, the fence-manufacturing Industry would be demoralized. To increase
the cost of wire, both fence production and consumption would be reduced, and farmers everywhere
throughout Canada would be hindered ln making improvements upon
their farms.
He Picked dp the null.
One nfternoon when voyaging to India K. of K. was dozing in his deck
chair, when n little lady of three or
four summers let her ball fly into his
face, whence it rolled to his feet.
Lord Kitchener woke up, says M. A.
P., and turned upon the child that
basilisk gaze before which the hearts
of strong men have often turned to water. But the child was in nowise
abashed. "Pick up my ball," she said
Imperatively. Lord Kitchener frowned nnd answered not. "Pick up my
ball," reiterated the small damsel Insistently. "Have not you got a nurse?"
snid Lord Kitchener ln an awful voice.
Tbe Interrogntlve mood was answered
by the Imperative, "Pick up my ball."
Lord Kitchener looked round despairingly, but re-enforcements were not ln
sight "Where ls your mother?" he
said weakly. "Pick up my ball," repeated the girl. The ultimatum was
dclvered ln crescendo tones, which suggested the imminence of something
worse to follow, nnd Lord Kitchener
meekly complied. Then he fled Incontinently to the smoke room.

Cursing, lt may be observed, continued In full vigor In Christian times, often harmonizing 111 with our modern
notions of Christianity. Some are almost horrible in their ferocity, as when
the violator of the tomb is told that
"he will be accursed of God forever"
or that "he will give account to (.oil,
who will judge the quick and the
dead." There ls one which perhaps
will rather provoke a smile. The offender Ib threatened with the curse
of all the fathers of the Nlccne council. "He that throws rubbish In this
lnclosure," the Inscription runs, "has
the anathema from the 818 fathers as
an enemy of God."

A Futile EBnri lo Fix tbe Date of IU
The Duchess of Bedford, who died
In 1809, was rather wetikiulnded, and
unhappily her education did little to
disguise the defects which nature bad
Imposed upon ber. lier great dread
was to bave a visitor at Woburu abbey
who would ask her bard questions
about tl.e foundation and history of
tbe abbey. So lf she bad a savant ln
tbe party sho always asked a man of
higher rank to meet lit ui, so thnt sbe
might not be taken ln to dinner by
the savant Once, as bnd luck would
bave lt, sbe got Lord Stanhope,. tbe
historian, who, though be bad to take
ber ln to dinner, was none the less a
savant. As soon as be snt down to
dinner he began the dreaded Inquiries
about the date of tlio abbey. The poor
duchess, much flustrutcd, snld:
"I have a very poor bend for these
blstorlcnl things, but I will tell you all
I know. Tho founder wiib a crusuder
who, finding himself In grent danger
ln battle, vowed that lf he got home
to Kuropo safe be would do anything
the pope told blm. He got bnck safe
and went to Rome, nnd the pope told
blm to build a Clstorclon abbey, and
he built Wolnirn abbey. That's all I
Lord Stanhope snld, "Thnt Is exactly
whut I wanted, for lf you can tell me
Which pope It wus I cun upproilinnUly
fl.x tlie ante."
'Oh," snld the duchess, "I always
understood lt was the popo of Home!"

It must be highly satisfactory to the
people of this Province to know that
the era of large deficits is past, for
the present at least. The statement
presented by Hon. K. G. Tallow, Minister of Finance, on Tuesday afternoon
in the Legislative Assembly is a plain,
unvarnished presentment of our financial situation. No attempt was made
to over-estimate the future or disguise
the facts as they are at the present
time, and as such Is best calculated to
inspire confidence in the management
of our aflairs. For the first year of
administration, ending June 30th, 1904,
there was a small surplus amounting
to a Utile over $_.,00ft. During the
present fiscal year another surplus is
anticipated. But for the coming fiscal
year, wliich the estimates just submitted are Intended tn cover. It Is anticipated that a pmall deficit will occur. This ls owing to the loss of revenue from the operations of the Chinese Restriction Act, which for the
years lf:03 and 190. amounted lo nearly 1500,000, There will, however, be a
saving to the Province under the new
Bducatton BUI, and from several other
reductions in expenditure, while substantia! Inn-cases are looked forward
to from land sales, land grants, timber
royalties, timber leases, etc. There
will, it is true, be the increase In Interest charges antl of expenditures for
public works to offset these In a measure. The Finance Minister, therefore,
although he does not at the present
lime see his way to making revenue
quite balance expenditure, lias hopes
that by carrying over the surpluses for
two years, and by poss-lhly exceeding
the estimates of revenue, he may
nevertheless succeed. In commentingi
upon tbe general situation, he said, as
reported, that "whilst there were no
signs of 'boom' or undue inflation, the
reports, both commercial and agricultural, from all parts of the Province indicated a condition of general prosperity, improving business conditions and
progress. In spite of adverse coinmen-
tal by critics of taxation, the most
encouraging reports were coming to
hand from ail our mining centres. They
were becoming more and more accustomed to hear of dividends being declared, and advices from London Indicated that capital was showing a tendency once more, to seek investment in
the Province. But whilst, as stated, the
signs of prosperity were general, there
were two of the most important
branches of local industry that needed
careful attention at the hands of both
Provincial and Federal authorities, viz
the fisheries and lumber."
Of course, we are well aware of the
conditions which affect the fisheries
and lumber Industries; but it Is hoped
that these will prove temporary. Captain Tatlow's remarks on Better Terms
were decidedly opportune. Whatever
may be said about the financial situation, in the final analysis the position
of the Province depends upon the recognition of our claims at Ottawa for
increased subventions. Wltliout it it
is impossible to adopt a "progressive"
or "aggressive" railway or any other
policy not within the limits of avail-
able sources of revenue. We are In
no sense superior in our advantages
over the Israelites of old, Inasmuch
as wo cannot make bricks "without
straw."—Vlotorlai "Colonist."

Of course, every year, with perennial
regularity, the Easter girl shows her
fondness for violets, but other years
che has always worn them pinned to
her fiock or coat. This year she will
emphasise her originality by having her
violets swing from her arm. The fragrant (lowers are massed to look like
a ball. The stems are tied with ribbons — sometimes violets, sometimes
green, and then again shimmering
cloth of gold. After tying the stems
tho ribbons are arranged in a wide loop
and then formed again in a bow with
many loops and ends. It is through
the loop that the smart girl puts he!
daintily gloved hand, and in this wa>
carries her violets swinging from he/
arm. The bunch of violets may be
made up with an orchid in the center,
or a gardenia. Though the purple violets will be those most carried, yet a
number of ultra-fashionable girls will
have their flower ball made of white
violets, with Just ono shaded green orchid in the center.
Artificial violets made ln a neckpiece will be another fancy of the
Easter girl. All through the Winter
the fashionable girl felt that she gave
just the correct smart touch to her
costume by wearing about her neck a
fur cravat, with one end carelessly
thrown over her left shoulder. She
liked this little accessory so much that
she was determined long before the
Spring days came to think up something in Its place which would answer
the same purpose. The violet cravat
finished with lovely lace frills Is the
result. These neck-pieces are generally made of shaded violets. They are
also seen fashioned of pale pink geranium-blossoms, and there are others
of wee roses, and then again of forget
me-nots. When . these flower cravats
are worn, the same flower Is also seen
In the hat.
The new hats appear to turn up every
way you look at them, but their flaring
tendency is specially noticeable at the
back. Perhaps this is just to make
room for the fetching flower cache-
pelgne, which is a bunch of flowers
lucked in at the back of the hat, ond
so arranged that a few buds and leaves
droop over the hair. H will be quite n
fad this Spring and Summer to have
the flower of the cacllftpetgne repeated
somewhere In the costume. The flower
may be a nntu-al one, and worn tucked In llie belt, or It may he merely the
i-'ifi allk or sheer organdie.
Trailing vines of flowers arc used
with spealally good effect pn the new
evening gownB. Instead ot ui-ramtlng
the flowers to outline t;.e bodice Iii
bertha tashlon, ihey are c.u:..ht at the
left Hhoudlder, trail over th" left side
of the bodice, fasten at the belt, and
then continue over tho aklrt of the
,,ov.n al the right side lu a lovely floral
en'.. Rosea, espeslaUy tea-roses, are
used In this wny, ae well as orchid:;,
hyacinths anil panales. To have this
thing of the moment, the leaves which
are mingled with It are enther brown
frosted with silver.
Still another little flower fashion Is
the necklet of blossoms, either Ihe
flowers sewed to a band of ribbon velvet, or made pendant fashion. In dangle
from lt. Flower sleeve-bracelets will
also be worn with many of the prettiest evening gowns. A white silk crepe
frock, for InBtance, will have Ihe puff
of the elbow-sleeve divided with nl
bracelet of olil-fnshloned billion roses, i
Perhaps an all-white gown may have
no other color note except the flow.er
sleeve-bracelet, and the flower necklet
to match. It Is surely an odd little
fancy, but a fetching one.
The  peacock  shades  continue  to  be
all the vogue" with the fashionable girl.
She is so anxious, in fact, to show that
she Bcorns  all  idea of
regard to the tail-feathers of the proud | and as to  all    their   doings   and
antl haughty peacock that she ls wear
Ing a feather or two in her hair, and
stamping it as- tlie smartest of hair-or
naments. The pea-cock feathers worn
In the hair are wired just sufiiciently
to make them stand as they should.
Then, the peacock-feather design ln
the natural colors is embroidered on
soft suede and used to form the revers,
coliai- and cuffs of many smart-looking
cloth jackets.
l-xtiulsite ribbon embroidery is also
used to give a charming new touch to
the revens and cuffs of some of the
imported Spring gowns.
The new bracelet - glove will
make its flrst appearance at Easter-
time. It is a glove without buttons,
though lt is a six-button length. Its
special feature is a narrow embroidered band worn over the glove just above
the wrist, which Is made with two fasteners at the ends, so that It may be
adjusted to wrists of different slaes.
Then there is the convenient purse-
glove, which Is made with the cutest
little purse In the palm of the hand.
The purse is made with a small flap,
whleh buttons over with n fastener,
the purse being Just large enough to
hold car-fare or church-money. This
glove comes in two, three and four
button lengths.
The girdle belt with postilion back
is among the novel dress accessories of
the moment. And it is on these new
lelts that the smart girl displays her
favorite semi-precious jewel. At present a beautiful light green slone called
chrysoprase is very much the fad.
Large anil small chrysoprascs aro used
lo stud exquisite little boleros of cloth
of gold or silver,. and a very lovely
girdle seen recently was made of tea-
color chiffon glace, which ls a very
fetching soft velvet. This girdle was
trimmed up the back with two rows
of chrysoprase buttons set ln rims of
tiny, odd-shaped baroque pearls: The
buttons extended over the two little
postilion tabs, which were finished with
frills of cream silk laee.
"The people should know for their
own protection. In no other way can
Ihey be so expeditiously, fully and
economically informed as through the
public press. All public officials, all
corporations, trust companies,' eleemosynary and monied institutions

We are taught to pray dally, 'lead us
not Into temptation,' but, by loose
methods of accounting and reporting,
lead those who handle public and fiduciary funds  into  constant temptation.
The proper officials should pay an
honest price to the newspapers for such
publications and the law should require proper fees to go into the public
treasury to cover such expense.
Tiie people and the newspapers should
co-operate in the \york of thorough
