"'_o!"  ho cried,   ''Wo   havo  to
with  three criminals instead of
Nice  family,  the Moorc-Jcffreys!" ■
But no ono paid any attention to
him. Addressing the major, the district attorney asked when he expected to hear from Denver, adding that
it haa now becomo of tho first importance to ascertain the exact relations existing between the persona
under suspicion and tho latest victim
of this deadly mechanism.
Tho major's answer wns abrupt.
Ho bad been expecting a report for
days. Ho was expecting ono yet. If
it camo in at any timo, night or
day, fio'was to bo immediately noti-
lled. Word might bo sent him in an
hour,  In a minute.
Were his remarks a prophecy? He
had hardly ceased speaking when an
officer appeared with a telegram in
his hand. This the major eagcrlv
took and, noting that it was In
cipher, read It by means of the code
he-carried in his pocket. Translated,
it ran thus:
Result ot open Inquiry in Denver.
Throe brothers Pfcifier; all well
thought of, but plain in their ways
and eccentric. Ono doing business in
De*nver. Died June, '97. Ono perished, in Klondike, October, same year;
and one, by name Wallace, died suddenly three months sinco in Washington.
Nothing further gained by secret
inquiry in this (Mace.
"Result of open inquiry ln Owosso.
A man named Pfoiller kopt a storo
in-Owosso during tho timo V. M. ill-
tended school thoro. Ho was ono of
threo brothors, home Denver, namo
Wallace. Simultaneously with V.
M.'s leaving school, P. broke up
business and    at  instigation  of his
with tho calmness of despair if
of mental serenity.
Tho major was awaiting us at the
door and bowed gravely before her
heavily veiled figure.
"Miss Tuttlo," ho asked, without
any preamble, the moment she was
woll inside tho house, "may I inquire
of you horo, and beforo I show you
what will excuse us for subjecting
you to tho distress of entering thoso
doors, whether your sister, Mrs.
Jeffrey, had any other namo or was
ever known by any other name thhn
that of Veronica?"
"She was christened Antoinette, as
well as Veronica; but the person in
whoso memory tho former name was
given hor was no honor to tho family and she vory soon dropped It and
was only known as Veronica. Oh.
what havo I done?" sho cried, awed
and frightened by tho silence which
followed tho utterance of these
simple words.
No ono answered her. For the first,
time in her presence, the minds of
thoso who faced her were with another than herself. The brido! the unhappy bride—no maiden but a wife!
nay, a wife one minute, a widow tho
next, and then again a newly-wedded
bride beforo tho husband lying below
was cold I What wonder that she
shrank when hor new-made bridegroom's lips approached hor own! or
that their honeymoon was a disappointment! Or that the shadow
which fell upon her on that evil day
nover left hor till sho gave herself
wholly up to its influenco and returned to die on tho spot made awful by her own crime.
Before any ot us were quite ready
to speak, a tap at the door told us
that Durbin had arrived     with    Mr.
brother    William, who    accompanied | Jollrey.   Whon they had boon admit-
hini, went to tho Klondike. No especial relation between lady and this
same P. ever noted. V. M. onco
heard to laugh at his awkward ways.
Result of secret inquiry in Owosso.
V: M. vory intimate with schoolmate who has since died. Often rode
together; once gone a long time.
This was Just before V. M. left
school for good. Date same as that
on which a marriage occurred in a
town twenty miles distant. Brido,
Antoinette MoOre; groom, W. Pfcif-
fer of Denver; witness, young girl
with red hair. Schoolmate had red
hair. Had V. M. a middle initial,
and was that initial A?
We all looked at each other; this
last question waa one nono of us
could answer.
"Go for Mr. Jeffrey at once," ordered the major, "and let another
ono of you bring Miss Tuttlo. No
word to either of what has occurred
and no hint of their possible meeting here."
It fell to me to fetch Miss Tuttlo.
I was glad ot this, as it gave mo a
few minutes by myself in which to
compose my mind and adjust my
thoughts to the new conditions opened up by the amazing facts which
hnd Just come to light. Dut beyond
tho fnct that Mrs. Jeffrey had licen
answerable for tho death which had
occurred in tho library at the time
of hor marriage—that, In tho words
of tha district attorney, sho had
come to her husband with blood on
her hands,—my thoughts would not
go; confusion followed tho loost attempt to settle tho vital question of
how far Miss Tuttlo and Mr. Jeffrey
bad boon involved in tho earlier crime
and what tho coming interview with
these two would add to our present
knowledge. In my anxiety to have
this ; question answered I hastened
my stops and was soon at tho rino'
of Miss "Tuttle's present" dwelling
I had not soon this lady since tho
inqueet, and my heart bent high as
1 sat awaiting her appearanco iu tho
dim little parlor wlniro 1 had been
seated by thu person who held her
under secret survoillancs. Tho scene
1 had Juat been through, tho uncertain nature of ths relations held by
this beautiful woman both toward
the crime Just discovered and tho
one long associated with her name,
lent to these fow moments of unlici-
pation an emotion which poorly prepared me for tha touching sight of
the patient smile with which she
presently entered.
But I doubt if sbe noticed my
agitation. She was too much swayed by her own. Advancing upon mo
in all the unconscious prido of her
great beauty, she tremulously ro-
; "You have a messago for mo. Is
it from headquarters? Or has tho
district attorney still moro questions
to ask?"
"1 have a much moro trying errand than that," I hastened to say,
with some Idea of preparing her for
an experience that could not fall to

For answor sho subjected me to a

"Oh!" sho mooned, as her eyes
fell on the little whito shred. "The

"Yes," came in dreary echo from
the man nono ol us had understood

The major, with his eyes fixed

He still loved her! That was apparent in every look, in every word
he uttered. We marveled in awkward
silence, und were glad when the major said:
"The deed, es I take it, was an
unpremeditated one on her part. Is
that" why her honor was dearer to
you than your own, and why you
could risk the reputation if not the
life of the woman who you say sac-
rificed herself to it?"
"Yes, it was unpremeditated; Bhe

to anybody whoso name he has once

Then with the inconsistency of great
anguish he suddenly broke forth into
the dotails he shrank from and cried:
"She muttered, lying there, that

1 could not question hor then; 1 dined not. The smile which slowly rose

I whispered the question: 'Do you

began to look upon it all as some

calmed me and I spoke gently to her
and even tried to take her hand. But
sho herself was raving now, and

Fact. Branch. Ont at tbe K.o.at Celebration ot the centenary of the Code
Nap-l.on In Montreal-Eulogy ot Bam*
•a tha R.lorm KlTocl.d by Cartl.r In
At the annual dinner of the Montreal Bar Association recently the
proceedings were mainly in celebration of tho centenary of the Code
Napoleon. Sir Alexandre Lacoste, Mr.
R. C. Smith, K.C., and Mr. Pierre
Beullas expressed the admiration
which all jurists feel for that great
system of law. The collection and
organization of tho laws of France is
the noblest work of peace with which
the name of Napoleon is connected.
It was under the authority of his
decree, issued as First Consul in
1800, that the commissioners began
their labors. At tho beginning of
1805 their great scheme of legal reform came into force. It consisted of
five codes—the civil code, the code of
criminal procedure, the penal code,
the code of civil procedure, the code
of commerce. It is one of the latest
products of that spirit of reform
which labored through the revolution
period to bring order out of disorder, and establish institutions on a
scientific basis. Llko the idea of the
Encyclopedie, begun long before the
Rovolution, the project of a new incorporation of the laws was in the
air nearly half a century before it
was actually overtaken.
Corpus Jurl. CItIIIs.
Though, as has been mentioned,
there were five bodies of French law
promulgated in 1805, that to which
the name Code Napoleon has come
to be specifically applied is the civil
code. This is one of the truly monumental achievements of legal codification. Every French province had
its own set of civil laws, some of
wliich were written and some customary. To collect all theso and arrange
them into a national fabric was a
task not beyond the powers of a
commission of able lawyers, but to
make of thom the complete and harmonious whole that was finally produced, genius must have beeu joined
with jurisprudence. The ono similar
work with which it may be compared
is the immortal Code of Justinian.
Tho Code Napoleon has remained tho
civil law of France over since. It is
now to be revised. A commission of
sixty-five members has been appointed for the purpose. These commissioners are to search in the legislation of foreign countries to find
ideas by which tho Code Napoleon
may be made more perfect. For, it
is to be remembered, the code was
adopted by many other nations, who
have possibly made developments upon it that may be regarded by the
commissioners as improvements. In
particular tha countries known as
the Latin nations have appropriated
it, and among these are to be included some of tho Republics of
South America. This wido adoption
is due to ths fact that it is jo rational an arrangement of all the
essential laws which govern the relations of persons, the administration
of property, and all forms of contract and obligations.
Quebec's cull Coda.
From the fact that the bar of Montreal makes the centenary an occasion for extolling the Code Napoleon, it is not to be inferred that
the Province of Quobec is one of the
communities by which that coda
has been taken over bodily. In that
province the French civil law was established by the Quebec Act of 1774,
thirty-one years before the work of
codification under Napoleon was
completed. This practical identity of
substance would seem to make the
acceptance of the entire Code Napoleon a natural step. But Quebec's
law was not based on any collation
of the laws of all the French provinces. It was what was known as
the custom of Paris, though this was
the common law of all France when
Quebec was organized as a province
of that country. From this beginning Quebec civil law produced its
own development and its own local
peculiarities. Between 1663, when
civil Government was introduced,
and 1760, when the province passed
undor British rule, several ordinances
of tho French Kings specially applicable to Canada were added. Further,
there were the arrets of the Sovereign Council of Quebec betweon 1774,
the year of tho Quobec Act, and
1841, the date of the Act of Union.
At all events, Queheo's civil law
went its own way, though starting
from an origin largely the samo as
that of the Code Napoleon. Iu time,
howover, tbo province found necessity for codifying its civil law.
Cartl.r'. ll.Corm.
Sir George E. Cartier was strongly Impressed with this need, and in
1857 persuaded the Legislature to
provide for it, recommending that
the linos ot the Code Napoleon be
followed. Three commissioners wero
appointed. Their labors continued
from 1859 to 1866, and tho Civil
Code they drew up came into force
on the first of August of the latter
year. As Hon. T. Chase Casgraln
has snid, the province takes a legitimate pride in that code. He regards
it as one of the most complete com-
pendiums of the civil law in existence. Quebec is the only Canadian
province which has a civil, law of
its own, but, of course, the province
is subject to the Criminal Code of
all Canada. Sir John Abbott once
said that the French civil law and
the English criminal law form tbo
greatest law system on earth. Car-
tier carried his codification scheme
against the strong opposition of
many lawyers and judges. Objection,
too, came from the church, whose
liberty in regard to education, marriage, and tho establishment of parishes was said to bo restricted by
it. Eventually the code was referred
to Rome, where, after careful examination, it was pronounced the
most carefully prepared sot of laws
existing in any country.

High National   Ideal.  Shonld  Ba   Plasad
••tore tho Narrow  Aim. of Solf-In.
t.r-.t-Por.oual  Exploitation.
The address of Mr. Byron E. Walker of Toronto, to the Canada Club
of Ottawa the other day upon the
duties of Canadians to Canada was
an inspiration to the two hundred
members, chiefly stalwart young
men, sons of the soil, to place high
national ideals befoie the narrow
and selfish aims of Belf-interest. Mr.
Walker rejoiced at the rapid growth
in recent years of the feeling of solidarity among the Canadian people.
One of the greatest evils Canada has
had to contend with was lock of confidence, Mr. Walker drew a gratifying picture of the natural resources
which Canadians have inherited, and
which are calculated to make Canada the proudest nation in the
The fathers of confederation had
only been ablo to accomplish their
design of linking the scattered units
of Canada together because of thoir
patriotism and intense belief in the j
future. Every young Canadian owned it as a duty to his country to
study her history and the record ot
the struggles through which she has
arrived at her present position. Tho
industrial problem was the first
which presented itself for consideration, and under this heading Mr.
Walker, while extolling industry in
the development of the national resources of the soil, the forest, tho
mine and the seas, lakes and rivers,
uttered a note of warning against
the industrialism, the love of money,
which threatened to outweigh the
higher and nobler sontiment of patriotism. Tho political conditions ef
the present day and of the future
undor a democracy would be Just
what the average intelligence and tha
average morality of the country
were, and it would be time enough
to expect a higher standard of public morality when the average of the
individual citizen has been elevated.
No sincere, sober, thoughtful citizen
of the United States is really satisfied with what tho democracy has
done for his nation. Experience has
proved that per so there is no virtue
in. democracy itself. We do not want
Qovernment in Canada to drift into
a condition liko that in tho United
States. If we wish to prevent that,
what we have to do is to incroaso
so far as we can those elements in
Canadian life that are different to
the elements which are to be found
in the United States. Mr. Walker
pointed out the danger that the Government of tho country might become
a huge oligarchy, as the Government
of the United States sometimes
threatens ta become.
The anxiety of some people to get
in the personal and social column of
the press he regarded as a shocking
and horrid attempt to exploit themselves, which was in as bad taste as
it could possibly b*. It was dobasing
and vulgarizing. Our educational
system, of which we are so proud,
also had the defects which appeared
to he Inherent in and inseparable
from democracy. The individual expected the State not only to educate
his children, but was very pleased to
have the State do as much as possible for him for nothing, and although the State docs not yet do
so, it was apparently expected that
before very long tho State would be
required to assume tho responsibility
of the dentistry of children's teeth
and the examination of thoir eyes.
In Toronto he did not know yet
that plumbing and carpentering were
taught, but he had no doubt in tho
end the demand would bo that every
child be taught to earn his own living. To his mind that was as false
an idea of education aa a country
could well have. Ho had no intention of quarrelling with technical
schools, believing in thoir desirability
as a superstructure, and in night
schools, where those who could not
pay for technical instruction could
obtain it froo. He did not lielieve in
a Bystcm of education' which does
not teach tho children how to speak
tho English language/, with reasonable accuracy, and to walk about
and deport themselves as gentlemen,
and to think and exercise powers of
reflection. After all, character and
the power to think are tho groat objects of education. "We cannot make
men fit to govern a nation, wo cannot mako patriotic, thoughtful citizens and a moral people simply by
technical education," said Mr. Walker.
"Wo are to succeed industrially,
but ore wo to be a cultured people?"
asked Mr. Walker in reaching tho
final and finest portion of his ad-
dross. "We are to be rich, aro wo to
bo wise? We Bhall perhaps be eventually among the lirst in coinmoroe—
shall 'we be among the flrst in arts
and letters? Unless we attain that
distinction, he added, we shall nut
succeed. We are to be a powerful nation—shall we bo a just nation? Are
wo to develop to be what Groat Britain now is, tho only nation in the
world that can bo trusted to govern
subject peoples justly? We aro to be
a democracy—will that be a guarantee of freedom, or a more oligarchy?"
Ho was not a possiS-ist, Mr. Walker
declared, but an optimist; a business
man to succeed must bo an optimist.
But optimism must bo ballasted with
common-sense. Tho wiso optimist expects trouble, looks upon all trouble
as more detail, but plans to meet
troublo. "I am so proud pf my
country and so confident of my countrymen, I look for the best results.

Editor and   Proprietor  of the  Swan
•  ''River. Star.
•',, By contrast with the newer—much
newer—.territories, Manitoba is an
old established country. The general
belief concerning .He" province ls that
during the last decade the work of
pioneering has been ■performed, juid
that the work df development has consumed the activities ot Manitobans.
This, to a large extent, is true, but lt
ls certainly nrft'tiq .whole truth. The
opening up of large. tracts of new
country,—such as that, for Instance be-
' tween Prince Albert and Edmonton,
or ln the Lethbrldge country, or along
the Soo line, or the, Prince Albert
branrli, or the country lying east and
west of tin. Calgary and Edmonton—
has not been going, tm In Manitoba for
the past ten years, and for sufficiently
obvious reasons. The'bldyr province
had Its railway systenis practically
completed long before that time, afid,
where railways were available settle™
ment naturally followed, so that a
comparatively dense population was
to be found in Manitoba-long.before
similar conditions could be expected
to obtain ln the Territories, wlth.thelr
vastly greater area and less comprehensive transportation facilities.' *
' For these reasons, the northwestern
pdrtlon of the province of Manitoba
was almost as unlnhabltated fifteen
years ago as in the days of Lord Selkirk. Settlers went Into the Toute now
occupied by tho Northwestern'branch
of the C.P.R. ln those early days when
lt was expected that lt would be the
line of the new transcontinental road,
but north of that was a hilly,, wood-
clad country, dotted with lakes, and
with a rich soil Unit only needed cultivation to mako it famous as even, the
Portage plains. But lt remained; for
the reasons, some of which are hoi
forth above, unlnhabltated whilo the
whole of the remainder of the province
was comparatively densely populated.
But with the building of the Dauphin branch all this was changed. ' A
thriving agricultural community soon
sprung up, flourishing littlo towns
sprung Into being, and the fame of the
fertile Dauphin country went abroad
through the land. With the town enme
the Inevitable advocate and publicity
agent, tho newspaper, which heralded
far and wide the many advantages of
the district In which It was published.
And the success of the Dauphin country was followed as a natural sequence
by that of similar territory contiguous
thereto. The natural result of Dauphin's success was the establishment
of Swan River.
Swan River sprung into being with
the advent of the railway. Hardly had
the triumphant shriek of the pioneer
locomotive ceased to re-echo among
the Thunder Hill than hammer and
saw were busy building the little town.
And, as usual, one of the first—as a
matter of fact the fourth—bidding
erected was a newspaper office. The
proverbial rapidity with which every
new western town harnesses tq its advancement fill the ppwors qf tho press
cai) hardly show a keener desire ta
seize all the advantages of publicity
than Swan. River,

reigned in'his room and stead. The
3wan River pioneer had gone Into real
estate and mahy other enterprises, and
these engrossed the whole of his time.
His son, Mr. W. H. Glendennlng, the

on the Dundalk Herald. He assumed
control of the Star in 1902. Shortly
after taking over the managership he
took another important step, marrying
Miss E. Kennel," of Dremore, Ont
The .conditions -under which the
Swan River Star was started were
such as to render lmmedldte success
improbable—perhaps impossible. The
controlling- factor of the success of
every newspaper is population. Without a field no paper can succeed. As a
means of publicity for the advantages
of district, the exploitation of which
was Its main business, it was beyond
doubt a conspicuous success. No country paper ever did beter immigration
work for its district. But as a financial proposition the Star was no gold
mine. But Mr. Glendennlng, Sr.,
was made of what stun westerners call "good stuff." He "hung on"
and waited for the day of prosperity
for the ultimate coming of which none
had done so much as he. And ln due
time came the reward of effort and
faith. Settlers continued to come in.
Business brightened in Swan River.
More merchants located there. Advertising patronage increased, and the
subscribers became more numerous.
The Star had turned the corner and
passed into the. list of western country
newspaper properties that are paying
investments. Even yet it is not a bo-

Of the present editor, under whose
guidance the Star ls each month showing steady improvement, there needs
but little to be said. He has a good
mechanical training, a "nose for news"
—that prime essential in the makeup
of any newspaper man, a belief in his
towu and district, a knowledge of its
needs, and the confidence of its people.
These, combined with industry, energy and enterprise, are the strong
foundations upon which he is building
up a successful business. Beyond this,
It needs but to say that he ls an un-1
assuming, capable, public spirited
citizen, with hosts of friendf, and few,
If any, enemies. He is doing in the
northwest portion of Manitoba what
other nowspaper men are doing everywhere throughout the West—building
up and developing his own locality,
and thus strengthening the Canadian
spirit and advancing the Canadian
nationhood. To him, and such as he,
the Dominion will forever owe a national debt, for they -ire the true
moulders of Canadian destiny.

All physicians are agreed that everyone needs a new supply of new blood
in the spring. The reason is plain—
close confinement in over-heated, imperfectly ventilated homes and work
places, have clogged the blood with
impurities. The liver is sluggish; the
kidneys fall to perform their work
properly. The impure blood is shown
ln a score of ways. You may only feel
a little tired, or easily depressed, but
these are mere symptoms from which
more serious trouble will follow In
other cases impure blood makes itself
manifest in pimples, and disfiguring
eruptions, occasional headaches, a variable appetite, attacks of Indigestion
or rheumatism, pains in the back and
loins. But whatever the trouble, there
ls only one sure way to get rid of it,
and that ls through the rich, red, new
blood which comes from the use of Dr.
William's Pink Pills. Every pill you
take makes new, rich blood, braces the
nerves, overcomes all weakness, drives
the germs of disease from the body
and gives you vim and energy to resist
the torrid heat of the coming summer.
Mr. Charles Saulnler, Corberrie, N. S.,
says:—"I was very much run down,
and so weak I could hardly work, lt
seemed ns though my blood was little
better than water. 1 tried several
medicines, but got nothing to help me
until I began taking Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills It was simply astonishing
how quickly these pills began to help
me, and how much new life and vigor
they put into me. They have made
me as sound as I ever was."
Good blood ls the secret of health
and strength. The secret of good
blood is Dr. Williams' Pink PillB.
These pills do not act upon the bowels—their whole mission is to make
new rich, health-giving blood, which
strengthens every organ, and every
nerve and drives disease from the

Unique and Solemn Annual Cere*
mony on  the River Neva.
Midwinter ln St. Petersburg each year
sees a unique and solemn ceremony
called "tbe blessing of the waters." A
chapel of Ice, richly decorated with or-
nnnienls from the palaces and churches
and dedicated to St. John the Baptist,
is erected on the frozen surface of the
river Neva. The river is then called
the Jordan, nnd religious services are
conducted ln the temple by the metropolitan or high priest of the national
church, attended by tbe emperor and
all bis court. The ceremony is in memory of the baptism of Christ and is
supposed to be a safeguard against
dangers from floods as well as to benefit those who make their living on the
sea. ■
A hole is cut ln the ice in the center
of the floor of the chapel. From this
the people are baptized by sprinkling
by the priests, and the faithful members of the Greek church go in vest
crowds to get their share, while religious devotees often plunge Into the
Ice cold flood through the hole. If they
catch cold and die, as they often do,
heaven ls secured for them. Ou the
evening before the ceremony devout
churchmen make crosses on their
thresholds to prevent tbe evil spirits

The Woman who Would

,<***•* Every day from five to fifteen letters are received by
The Ogilvie Flour Mills Co. from women living in the
smaller towns throughout Canada, saying they have asked
their grocer for Royal Household Flour but can't get it
One writes—"I told my grocer, Mr.—, that I would buy
'Royal Household* regularly if he would always keep it
on hand, but he said he wouldn't take on another brand of
flour until he was obliged to." -"-mother says—"My grocer
is an 'old fogie' and never gets the newest or the best
things until the year after." A third says—"We haven't
an enterprising grocer in our town and are obliged to send.
to~~—for 'Royal Household' or take a poorer flour."
^Write dire A to Ogilvie's.     .
If you can't get "Royal Household" from your grocer;
write to us direct—we will immediately give you the name
of the nearest grocer who keeps "Royal Household" and
Bend you also the "Royal Household" recipes. There is no
good reason why your grocer should compel you to use
inferior flour—no first class grocer will hesitate to order
"Royal Household" for you, and even the smallest dealer
will get it if you insist upon it.

defeated. We aro confident that tho
taxpayers aud citizeus at large nree too
• mnch nlive to the interests of Vaucover
to vote another hnlf ui.lliou of debt ou
the City. The total possible borrowing
poweT of the City is $4,600 000.00; the
present indebtedness is $_,28.">,000 00. If
the By-laws pass the City will be burdened with largely increased interest
besides owing uu additional $467,000 00
All this means increased taxation, so let
every property holder cast his vote
against the By-laws.

New ribbons, both wide and In half
widths, promise to be ln highest favor
because of this novelty. They have a
white s'.lk foundation, with side borders
of leafless pink roses tn the closest
proximity, forming one solid chain. On
the outer edge ls a half-Inch satin border, ether in green, blue, yellow, mauve
or black The latter ls as chic as pos
Ribbons have reached so Important
a place as features of trimming that
there are constant surprises turning up
that show to what wonderful felicity
of Invention trimmers have arrived.
Not long ago a charming example was
met In a costume of chiffon cloth, In a
golden wheat shade, that was exceptionally lovely. The skirt was long
and trimmed with wheels of chiffon taffeta ribbon a trifle darker than the
cloth, and placed some five inches
above the bottom of the skirt. These
wheelH were shirred In their centres
and plaited upon their edges, having
a silk button to match for finish. The
wheels were large and formed quite
an Imposing series, so perfectly were
they made. There was more or less
top-skirt fullness, but stitched down
to flat effects. The bodice waa extremely original. Its foundation was
of antique guipure lace of the same
shade as the gown, dyed to match the
cloth, with a basque attachment. This
lace was worked upon by a ribbon design with excellent effect, and so were
the low sleeves, a two-Inch ribbon hav
ing been selected to match that used
upon the skirt. There were slashes on
the sleeves and upon the bodice, and
ribbon was used for the bordering of
all openings as well, besides ribbon
cross-straps and ribbon choux ornamenting them. When the white laces
of chemisette and sleeve trimmings
were attached, then the full beauty of
this bodice was appreciated, as It goes
without saying that a white silk mull
waist was also worn under this lace bodice.
When buying a new skirt, an extra
quantity that will make a cape or wing
pieces to sleeves, bretelles, or **straps
will contribute one or more changes to
your dress at very little expense.
Whether the skirt material ls of vo'.le
or white canvas, pique, or any of the
washable fabrics, It does not matter.
If of voile, white shirtwaists have to
be worn w th the skirt to show off these
little aeccFsorles. If the skirt Is all
white the white attachments will look
very pretty over colored lawn or linen
shirtwaists, or the same white shirt
waists may be worn, and a line of
color be given to the attachments by
some embroidery, with wash cottons
or by lines of soutache braided on. A
white skirt and waist with a colored
cape looks youthful and picturesque.
Pongee capes are In good taste, and so
are the brown, dark blue and gray rajahs.

Once more the strawberry Is here to
gladden the eyes and rejoice the palate,
and again Is the hostess on the lookout
for novel ways of serving this delectable fruit, so that suggestions thereto
are much In order.
As the flrst course for a spring
luncheon, a strawberry salad Is sure to
Bn' favor. Wash carefully one full
quari of fine, selected berries, sweeten
to taste with confectioner's sugar, and
squeeze over them the Juice of a fine
lemon; this seems to bring out the natural flavor in a most pleasing way. Set
the berries aside for at least one hour
before serving, and let them become
very cold. At serving time, place each
portion on' a decorated salad plate, and
over the fcerrles turn one- spoonful of
fruit mayonnaise, which Is made as
follows: . Separate the yolk from the
white of one egg, and mix with one
tablespoonful of confectioner's sugar
beat until the mixture ls very smooth
and a light yellow or lemon color; add
one teaspoonful of lemon juice and one
tablespoonful of sherry wine; make a
short time before using, and, after
turning over the berries, decorate each
dish with a rosette of whipped cream,
placed Just In the middle, the berries
bein? heaped slightly as they are placed
In each dish. The whipped cream may
be omitted, the berries being served
on a crisp, blanched lettuce leaf, and
the mayonna'se made quite stiff with

Why shouldn't it cure her?
Is It a complicated case? Thousands

havo been worked by "Favorite Proscription" In tho cure of irregularity,
