- "it is my who s Handwriting," he
impatiently declared. "Written, as
all can see, under preat agitation ol
mind,_but hers without anv doubt."
"Will you read aloud these word*
for our benefit'." asked the coronet
It was a cruel request, causing an
Instinctive protest from the spectators. But no protest disturbed
Coroner Z. He had his reasons, no
doubt, for thus trying this witness.
and when Coroner Z. had reason for
anything it took more than the displeasure of the crowd to det^r him
Mr. Jeffrey, who had subdued whatever Indignation bo may havo felt at
this unmistakable proof of the coroner's intention to havo his own way
with him whatever the cost to his
sensitiveness or pride, obeyed the
latter's command in firmer tones
than I expected.
The lines he was thus called upon
to read may bear repetition:
"I find that I do not love you as
I thought. I con not llvo knowing
this to be so. Pray God you may
forgive met VERONICA."
As the last word fell with a   little
.tremble from Mr.   Jeffrey's lips,   the
coroner repeated:
"You still think these words   were
addressed to you by your wife; that
in short they contain an explanation
of her death?"
;    "I do."
There was sharpness In the tone.
Mr. Jeffrey was feeling the prick.
There was agitation in It, too; an
agitation he was trying hard to keep
"You hava reason, then," persisted
the coroner, "for accepting this peculiar explanation of your wife's
death; a death which, in the Judgment of most people, was of a nature
to call for the strongest provocation
"My wife was not herself. My wife
was ln an overstrained and suffering
condition. For one so nervously overwrought many allowances must be
made. She may have been conscious
ol not responding fully to my affection. Tbat this feeling was strong
enough to induce her to take her lifo
ls a source of unspeakable grief to
me, but for one which you must find
explanation, as I have so often said,
In the terrors caused by tho dread
event at the Moore house, which recalled old tragedies and emphasized a
most unhappy family tradition."
The coroner paused a moment to
let these words sink into the ears of
the jury, then plunged Immediately
Into what might be called the offensive part of his examination.
"Why, If your wife's death caused
you such Intense grief, did you appear so relieved at receiving this by
no means consoling explanation?"
At an implication so unmistakably
suggestive of suspicion Mr. Jeffrey
showed fire for tho first time.
"Whose word have you for that?
A servant's, so newly come into my
house that her very features are still
strange to me. You must acknowledge that a person of such marked
inexperience can hardly be thought
to know me or to interpret rightly
the feelings of my heart by any passing look she may have surprised upon my face."
This attitude of defiance so suddenly assumed had an effect he little
realized. Miss Tuttle stirred for the
first time behind her veil, and Uncle
David, from looking bored, became
suddenly quite attentive. Those two
but mirrored the feelings of the general crowd, and mine especially.
"We do not depend on hor judgment alone," the coroner now remarked. "The change In you was
apparent to many others. This" we
can provo to tho jury if thoy   require
But no man lifting a voice from
that gravely attentive body, the
coroner proceeded to inquire if Mr.
Jeffrey felt like volunteering any explanations on this head. Receiving
no answer from him either, he dropped the suggostive line of inquiry
and took up the consideration of
facts. The first question ho now
put wns:
"Where did you find the slip of
paper containing these last words
from your wife?"
"In a book I picked out of the
book-shelf in our room upstairs.
When Loretta gavo me my wife's
message I knew that I should find
' some word from her in tho novel we
had just been reading. As wo had
boon Interested In but one book since
our marriage, there was no possibility of my making any mistako as to
which one she referred."
"Will you give us the namo of
this novel?"
"And you found this book called
'Compensation' in your room upstairs?"
"On the book-sbolf?"
"Where doos this book-shelf stand?"
Mr. Jeffrey looked up as niiiih as
so Bay, "Why so many small questions about so simple n matter?" but
answered frankly enough:
•'At the right of Uie door hading
Into tho bed-room."
"Ami at right angles to tho door
lcktllng Into tho ball7"
''Very good. Now may I ask you
to describe the cover of this book?"
'"fho cover? I never noticed the
cov^r. Why do you—. Excuse me, I
suppose you have yonr reasons for
nsMiii; oven these puerile and scein-
.irigl'y unnecessary questions. The cover ls a queer ono I believe; partly
red and partly groen; nnd that is all
1 know about It."
"Ts this the book?"
Mr.  Jeffrey glanced  at tho volume
the.coroner held up before him.
;   "I believe so;  it  looks like it."
Tlie book had a limning cover,
quite unmistakable in its character.
"Tho -title shows it to be tho
name," remarked the coroner. "Is
this the only book with cover of
this kind in tho noutc?"
"The only one,   I should say."
Tho coroner laid down tlw book.
"Enough of this, then, for tho present; only lot thu jury remember Ihut
the cover of this book is peculiar
and thnt it was kopt on a shelf nt
the right of the opening loading into
the adjoining bed-room. And now,
Mr. Jeffrey, wo must ask you to look
at these rings; or, rather, at this
one. You have seen it before; tt ls
tha ono l-ou ulaceil on. M(S. Jeffrey's
hand 'vhen you were married to  nor
a littlo  over a fortnight ago.    You
recognize it?"
"I do."
"Do you also recognize this small
mark of blood on it as having been
here when it was shown to you by
tho detective on your return from
seeing her dead body at the Moore
"I do; yes."
"How do you account for that
spot and the slight injury made to
her finger? Should you not say that
the ring had been dragged from her
"I should."
"By   whom   was   it   dragged?
"No, sir."
"By herself, then?"
"It would seem so."
"Much passion must hava been
that act.     Do you think that   any
ordinary   quarrel    between   husband
and wife would account for the display of such fury?    Are we not right
in supposing a deeper cause   for   the
disturbance   between   you than   the
slight one you offer in way of   explanation?"
An inaudible answer; then a   sudden straightening    of    Francis   Jel-
frey's fine figure.  And that waa all.
"Mr. Jeffrey, in the talk you   had
with your wife on Tuesday morning
was Miss Tuttle's name introduced?'
"It was mentioned; yes, sir."
"With recrimination    or any   display of passion on the part of your
"You would not believe me if I
said no," was the unexpected rejoinder.
The coroner, taken aback by this
direct attack from one who had hi-
theto borne all his innuendoes with
apparent patience, lost countenance
for a moment, but, remembering that
in his official capacity he was more
than a match for the elegant gentleman, who under othor circumstances
would have found lt* only too easy to
put him to the blush, he observed
with dignity:
"Mr. Jeffrey, you are on oath. We
certainly have no reason for not believing you."
Mr.  Jeffrey bowed.    Ho was probably sorry for his momentary loss of
self-control,  and   gravely,  but   with
eyes bent elownward,  answered with
the abrupt phrase:
"Well, then, I will say no."
The coroner shifted his ground.
"Will    you    make   the same reply
when    I    ask if the like forbearance
was shown towards your wife's name
in   .the    conversation you had with
Miss Tuttle immediately afterward?"
A halt in the eagerly looked-for reply; a hesitation, momentary indeed,
but pregnant  with  nameless suggestions,    caused  his  answer,  when    it
did come,   to loso some of the   emphasis  he  manifestly   wished to  put
into it.
"Miss Tuttle was Mrs. Jeffrey's
half-sister. Tho bond between them
was strong. Would she—would 1—be
apt to speak of my young wife with
"That is not an answer to
question, Mr. Jeffrey. I must
quest a more positive reply."
Miss Tuttle made a move,
strain on all present was so great
we could but notice it. He noticed
it too, for his brows came together
with a quick frown, as ha emphatically replied:
"Thero wero no recriminations uttered. Mrs. Jeffrey bad displeased
me and I said so, but I did not forget that I was npoaking of my wifo
suid to her sister."
As this was in the highest degree
non-committal, the cOroner could be
excused for persisting.
"Tbe     conversation,    then,     waa
about your wifo?"
"It was."
"In criticism of her conduct?*'
"At the ambassador's boll?"
Mr. Jeffrey was a poor hand at lying. That last "yes" came with
great effort.
The coroner waited, possibly for
the echo of this last "yes" to cease;
then he remarked with a coldness
which lifted at once the veil from his
hithorto woll disguised antagonism
to this witness:
"if you will recount to us anything which your wifo said or did on
that evening which, ln your mind,
was worthy of all this coll, It
might help us to understand the situation."
But the witness made no attempt
to do so, and while many of us were
ready to pardon him this show of
delicacy, others folt thai undor the
circumstances it would have been better had ho been more open.
Among the latter was the coroner
himself, who, from this moment,
threw aside all hosltation and urged
forward his inquiries in a way to
press the wtlnoss closer and closer
townrd the net ho was secretly holding out for him. First, hs obliged
him to say that his conversation
with Miss Tuttlo had not tended to
smooth matters; that no reconciliation with his wife had followed it,
and that in the thirty-six hours
which elapsed before he returned
homo again ho had made no attempt
to soothe tho feelings ot one, who,
according to his own story, he considered hardly responsible for any extravagances in which she might have
indulged. Then when this inconsistency had been given time to sink into the minds of the jury, Coroner Z.
increased the effect produced by confronting Jeffrey with witnesses who
testified to the friendly, lf not loverlike relations which had existed between himself and Miss Tuttlo prior
to the appearance of his wife brought
out the denial, by no means new,
that an engagement had ever taken
place between him and Miss Tuttlo
and hence that a bond had boan canceled by his marriage with Miss
But his manner and careful choice
of words In making this denial did
not satisfy thoso present of his entire candor; especially as Miss Tuttle, for all her apparent Immobility,
showed, by the violent locking of her
hands, both hor anxiety and tho suffering she was undergoing during
this painful examination. Was the
suffering merely one ot outraged dul-
icacy?    Wo folt just Hied la doubting
lt,   and      IOOKca   loiwiuu,    >v>_T_- eru_,
curiosity I admit, to the momemt
when this renowned and universally
admired  beauty   would   bo  called  on
to throw aside her veil and reveal
the highly praised features which had
been so openly scorned for the sake
of one whoso chief claims to regard
lay in her great wealth.
But this moment was as yet far
distant. The coroner was a man of
method, and his plan was now to
prove, as had been apparent to most
of us from the first, that the assumption of suicide on the part of
Mrs. Jeffrey was open to doubt. The
communication suggesting such an
end to her troubles was the strongest proof Mr. Jeffrey could bring forward that her death had been the
result of her own act. Consequently
it- was now the coroner's business to
show that this communication was
either a forgery, or a substitution,
and that if she left somj word in the
book to which she had in so peculiar
a manner directed his attention, it
was not necessarily tho ono bewailing her absence of love for him and
her conslquent intention of seeking
relief from her disappointment in
Some hint of what the coroner contemplated had already escaped him
in the persistent and seemingly inconsequent questions to which he had
subjected this witness in reference to
these vory matters. But the time
had now come for a more direct attack, and the interest rose correspondingly high, when tho coroner,
lifting again to sight tho scrap of
paper containing tho few piteous
iincs so often quoted, asked of the
now anxious and agitated witness, il
ho had over noticed any similarity
between the handwriting of his wife
and that of Miss Tuttle.
An indignant "No!" was about to
pass his) lips, when he suddenly
checked himself end said more mildly: "There may have boon a similarity; I hardly know, I have seen too
little of Miss Tuttlo's hand to
This occasioned a diversion. Specimens of Miss Tuttle's handwriting
were produced, which, after having
been duly proved, were, passed down
to the jury long with tho communication' professedly signed by Mis.
Jeffrey. The grunts of astonishment
which ensued as the knowing heads
drew near over those several papers
caused Mr. Jeffrey to flush and lin-
ully to cry out with startling emphasis:
"I know that those words were
written by my wifo."
But when the coronor asked hilui
his reasons for this conviction, he
Could, or would not state tliem.
"I have said," ho stolidly repeated; and that was all.
The coroner mado no comment, but
when, after somo further inquiry,
which added little to tlie general
knowledge, he dismissed Mr. Jeffrey
and recalled Loretta, there was that
in his tone which warned us that the
really serious portion of the day's
examination was about to begin.
The appearance of this witness had
undergone a change since she last
stood before us. Sho was shamefaced still, but her manner showed
resolve and a feverish determination
to face the situation which could but
awaken in tho breasts of those who
had Mr. Jeffrey's honor and personal
welfare at heart a nameless dread;
as it they already foresaw the dark
shadow which minute by minute was
slowly sinking over a household
which, up to a wiwk ago, had been
the envy and admiration of all
Washington socioty.
The first answer she made revealed
both the cause of her shame and the
reason of her firmness. It was in
rosponso to the question whether slie,
Loretta, had seen Miss Tuttle before
sho went out on tho walk she was
said to havo taken immediately after
Mrs. Jeffrey's final departure from
the house.
Her words were these:
"I did sir. I do not think Miss
Tuttle knowe it, but 1 saw hor in
Mrs. Jeffrey's room."
Tho emphatic tone, offering such a
contrast to her former manner of
speech, might havo drawn all eyes
to the speaker had not the person
she mentioned offered a still moro
interesting subject to the general
curiosity. As it was, all glances flow
to that silent and seomingly impassive figure upon which all open
suggestions and covert innuendo had
hitherto fallen without creating more
than a pressure of her interlaced fingers. This direct attack, possibly
the most threatening she bad received, appeared to produce no more
effect upon her than the others; less,
perhaps, for no stir was visiblo in
her now, and to soino eyes she hardly seemed to breathe.
Curiosity, thus baffled, led the gaze
on to Mr. Jeffrey, and even to Uncle
David; but the former had dropped
his head again upon his hand, and
the other—well, there was Utile to
observe in Mr. Mooro at any timo,
save the immense satisfaction he
socmed to take in himself; so attention returned to the witness, who, by
this time, had entered upon a consecutive tale.
As near as I can remember, these
aro the words with which she pro-
facod it:
"I am not especially proud of whnt
I did that night, but I was led into
It by degrees, and I am sure I beg
the lady's pardon." And then she
went on to relate how, after she had
seen Mrs. Joffroy loavo the house,
she .went into her room with tho intention of putting it to rights. As
this was no more thnn her duty, no
fault could bo found with her; but
she owned that when she had finished
this task and removed ull evidence of
Mrs. Jeffrey's frenzied condition, she
had no business ito linger at the
table turning over the letters sho
found lying there.
Here the coroner stopped her and
made some Inquiries in regard to
those' letters, but as they seemed to
be ordinary epistles from friends and
quite foreign to the Investigation, he
allowed her to proceed.
Her cheeks were burning now, for
she had found herself obliged to admit thnt she hnd lend enough of
these letters to be sure that they
had no reference to the quarrel then
pending between her mistress and
Mr. Jeffrey. Her eyes fell and she
lookod seriously distressed as she
At'iTt on to say tliat slic was as con-
iCloUfl then as now of having no business with these paper); so conscious,
indeed, tlmt whon she heard Miss
Tuttle's step at tho door, hpr ono
Idea was  to hide herself.
That t-.iu could stand and fnco that
ludy never so much as occurrod to
her. Her own guilty consciousness
mude her checks too hot for her to
wish to meet an' eye which hud never
rested on her any too kindly; so
noticing how straight the curtains
'11  ovur oiin nf tha windows on the
opposite ffide of 'the room, sho dashed toward it and slipped in out ol
sight just as Miss Tuttle came in,
This window was one seldom used,
owing to the fact that it overlooked
an adjoining wall, so she had no fear
of Miss Tuttle's approaching it. Consequently, she could stand there at
her ease, and, as the curtains in falling behind her had not come quite
together, she really could not help
seeing just what that lady did.
Here the witness paused with every
appearance of looking for some token
of disapprobation from the crowd.
But she encountered nothing there
but eager anxiety for her to proceed, so without waiting for the coroner's question, she added in so many
"She went first to the book-shelves."
We had expected it; but yet a general movement took place, and a few
suppressed exclamations could be
"And what did she do thero?"
"Took down a book, after looking
carefully    up and down the shelves."
"What color of book?"
"A green one with rod figures on
it. I could soo tho cover plainly as
she took it down."
"Like this  one?"
"Exactly like that one."
"And what did she do with this
"Opened it, but not to read it.
She was too quick in closing it for
"Did she take the book away?"
"No, she put Jt buck em the shelf."
"After opening and closing it?"
"Yes, sir."
"Did you sec whether she put any-
ihing into the book-?"
"I cun not swear that she did; but
then her back was to me, and 1
could not have seen it if she lind."
The Implied suggestion caused some
excitement, but the coroner, frowning on this, pressed tho girl to continue, asking if Miss Tuttle left the
room immediately after turning from
tho book-shelves. Loretta. replied
no; that, on tho contrary, she stood
for some minutes neur them, gazing
in whut seemed a great distress of
inind, straight upon tho floor; after
which she moved, in an agitated way
und with more than one unxious look
behind her into tho udjoining room
where she paused before a large bureau. As this bureau was devoted entirely to Mr. Jeffrey's use, Loretta
experienced somo surprise at seeing
his wife's sister approach it in so
stealthy a manner. Consequently shu
was watching with all her might,
when this young lady opened tho upper drawer und, with vory evident
emotion, thrust her hand into it.
What sho took out, or whether sho
took out anything, this spy upon her
movements could not sny, for when
Loretta heard the drawer being pushed back into placo sho drew the curtains close, perceiving that Miss Tuttle Would have to fuce this window
in coming back. However, shu ventured upon one other peep through
them just as that ludy wus leaving
the room, and remembered as if it
were yesterday how clay-white her
face looked, and how she held her
left hand pressed close against the
folds of her dress. It was but a few
minutes after this that Miss Tuttle
left the house.
As we all knew what was kept in
that drawer, the conclusion was obvious. Whatever excuse Miss Tuttle
might give for going into her sistur's
room at this timo, but ono thought,
one fear, or possibly one hope, could
have taken her to Mr. Jeffrey's private drawer. She wished to see if his
pistol was still there, or if it had
been taken away by her sister,—a
revelation "of the extreme point to
which her thoughts had flown at this
crisis, and ono which effectually contradicted her former stutoment that
sho hud boen conscious of no nlnrm
in behalf of her sister and hod soon
her leave tho house without dread or
suspicion of evil.
The temerity which had mado it
possible to associate the name of
such a man as Francis Jeffrey with
an outrageous clime having been thus
in a measuro explained, the coroner
rocallod that gentleman and again
thoroughly surprised the gaping public.
Had the witness accompanied his
wifo to the Mooro house?
Had he met her there by any appointment he had made with her or
which had been mado for thom both
by somo third person?
Had ho been at the Moore house on
the night of the eleventh at any time
previous to the hour when he was
brought there by officials?
Would he glance at this impression
of certain finger-tips which hud been
left in the dust of the southwest
chamber mantel?
Ho had already noted them.
Now would ho place his left hand
on the paper and see—
"It is not necessary," he burst
forth, in great heat. "I own to those
marks. That is, I have no doubt
they wore mado by my bond." Here,
unconsciously, his eyes flow to the
member thus rofurred to, as if conscious that in somo way it had prov-
od a traitor to him; nfter which his
gaze traveled slowly my way, witb
an indescribable, question in it which
roused my conscience and mado the
trick by which I got tho impression
of his hand seem less of a triumph
than I had heretofore considered it.
The next minute ho was answering
tho coroner untl*r oath, very much as
he hud answered hlin in tho unofficial
interview at which I had beon present.

The  Agonies  of  Indigestion  Can   Be
Cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
All over the land there are people
whose lives had been made miserable
through the pangs of Indigestion,
who have been restored to the enjoyment of health through the use of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. One bf
these is Mr. Wm. Moore, of Welland,
Ont. Mr. Moore is the manager of
the electrio light plant in that town,
and stands high ln the estimation of
the citizens. He says: "It is really
a pleasure to speak ln favor of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. For four years
prior to 1903 I suffered great torture from indigestion and stomach
trouble. I could not eat solid food
without experiencing great agony,
and for ovor two years I had to resort to a milk diet. I had grown
emaciated and was almost unfit for
active work. I was treated by doe-
tors and took advertised medicines,
but without any lasting benefit. Ono
day a friend urged me to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. I began their
use, but I must confess that lt was
without much hope that they would
cure me. After taking a couple of
boxes I could see an Improvement,
and this gave me encouragement. I
continued using the pills until I had
taken eight boxes, when I was completely cured and able to eat any
kind of food I desired. I Bhall always praise Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
as they saved me from such misery
as only a dyspeptic knows. I might
add tbat my wife has also used the
pills for troubles that afflict he sex,
and has been fully restored to health."
Bad blood, poor blood, watery
blood, is tha cause of nearly every
ailment that afflicts mankind. It ls
because every dose of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills make new, rich, red blood
that they have such wonderful power
to cure such ailments as Indigestion,
anaemia, rheumatism, neuralgia, St.

ailments of women, young and old,

Editor of the  Saskatoon  Phenix.
Knowing that on politics men could
never agree, he decided that the
Phenix' politics should be—Saskatoon.
Political policies were judged according or not as they made for the welfare and development of the Northwest Territories In general, and the
Saskatoon district In particular. The
men who established the Phenix knew
exactly what they wanted, and set to
work to make the newspaper realize
their desires. The utmost diligence
was used to secure capable correspondents throughout all tbe large
territory in which the town desired
to be regarded aB the business centre.
The local news was aimed to be thoroughly and brightly covered. And, politically, the paper was to grind nobody's axe, and to pull the chestnuts
of no party out of the fire. The local
Board of Trade had much more to do
with determinig the tone and direction of its editorial utterances than
had any party leader or any party association. Thus the Phenix was laid
down on unusual, and on broad lines.
It had clearly defined for Itself a
sphere of usefulness and activity, and
a policy which, if adhered to, could
hardly fall to make it a newspaper of

Newspaper work, to be well done,
demand the exercise of qualities
many and various. The ability tc
write Is, of course, a slue qus non,
but keenness of observation, rapidity
of judgment, a good general knowledge of a wide range of subjects, and
intellectual sympathy and versatility
are even more necessary elements to
success. When these are combined
with sound business sense, and their
happy possessor gets into journalism,
his success Is a foregone conclusion.
Men who are fortunate enough to possess these gifts will, in all probability, succeed in whatever activity they
elect to devote their energies, but iu
no department will these qualitios be
more speedily recognized, or more
quickly rewarded, than In the newspaper business. It Is the very essence
and spirit of journalism that, ln spite
of Itself, it proclaims in every issue
tho character of the forces controlling
it. No newspaper can "run a bluff,'
at least for long. Its errors, both ot
judgment and of fact, are patent and
apparent to all who read. Aud the
converse is equally true. When a pa
per Is sound, sane, and moderate In
Its views, reliable In Its statements ol
fact, -and vigorous and enterprising in
Us ..curing of news, it is rewarded
by a public confidence' that Is its
most valuable asset. By its readers
lt ls Bpoken of with an esteem almost
amounting to affection. Its opinions
are regarded as though they were the
very oracles of tbe gods, and the competitor that would seek to usurp Its
place In popular favor will have "a
hard row to hoe." What the Toronto
Clobe was to the Ontario (Jrlt in the
time of George Brown—what the Free
Press was to every Manitoban in the
days of W. F. Luxton—that will any
paper be ln the territory in which it
circulates, If it represents and embodies, as did they, certain well de
fined ideas or standards. But behind
theso Ideas and standards, in the case
of every newspaper that ever occupied a position of pre-eminence, was
a personality, of which the paper was
but the reflection. The man is always
greater than the editor.
Among the  Western Canadian  papers that occupy a  position that  iu
some sort corresponds with that indicated above is the Saskatoon Phenix.
It comes easily within the half dozen
newspapers  in  the  Northwest  Territories.   In some respects lt is one ol
the most remarkable papers published in the West.   Its growth, both in
size and circulation,   has   been  phenomenal.    In   this   respect  it   corresponds with the town in wl.'ch it is
published.   Five years ago Saskatoon
was hardly big enough to be dignified
even by the title of a way station. The
original   town   was  on  tho  opposite
side of the river—lt Is now  given   a
name "all to Itself" and called Nut-
ana.  The railway station was moved
across the Saskatchewan, and houses
and stores were ferried- over, or new
ones  built,  to  keep the rouudbouse,
the depot and  the  water tank  company. But till 1898 or 1899 Saskatoon
was as dead as Queen Anne.    With
those years there commenced the. inflow of population Into the Canadian
West that has been one of the most
remarkable   movements   of   modern
times, and tho deserted prairies aiong
the line of the Prince Albert branch
began to be  dotted  with farms  and
diapered with fields.   And Saskatoon
became one of the Meccas for immigrants from the ends of the earth.  It
was at once a rallying point and a
distributing  point  for newly  arrived
Bettlers   from    the    Canadian    East,
from Britain and Europe, and from the
United   States.   It   is   doubtful  if  a
town in America of equal permanent
population did as  much business  as
was done by the Saskatoon merchants
ln their wooden shacks.   And, day after day, for more than a hundred miles
ln every direction, east to the Quill
Lake country, and west towards Edmonton, driving their stock ahead of
them, and walking beside their wag-i
gons loaded with the lumber for the
building of the new home, tho stove,
the most necessary house equipment,
and with a plow and harrow  to start
the tilling of the fertile prairie, the
new Bettlers struck out for their homesteads, and started in to develop the
country tributary to Saskatoon.   The
town grew like Jonah's gourd, and in
two seasons became one of the most
important In tho Territories.
In this, its formative period, Saskatoon was fortunate that lt hatl among
Its citizens farslghted, level-headed,
enterprising men. They recognized
tho necessity for a newspaper, and
they founded one—tho Phenix. Its
founder, proprietor and editor was
' Leonard Norman, formerly of the
Moosejaw Times. He it was, ln conjunction with some of the more prominent citizens, who shaped tho policy
of the paper, which for two years he
controlled, until ill-health compelled
him to relinquish the task at whlcb he
had succeeded so well, and sell out to
the company of which the principal
stockholder, promoter and moving
spirit was Dr. Wllloughby.
Mr.   Norman   recognized  that   one
terests with his medical work, and to
do them all well, It will be seen that
Dr. Wllloughby is no sluggard. In
point, of fact, he combines with attractive personal qualities a power of
organization, a breadth of view, a
range of knowledge, and a systematic
industry that mark him as one of the
most forceful figures in the life of the
Territories. He is not by training or
inclination an editor: yet by bringing
to editorial wark a well-thought-out
policy, and those qualities and attainments that have made him successful
in medicine and finance, he has
achieved one of the most conspicuous newspaper successes in the West.
That such should be the case Is a tribute to the opportunities offered by
journalism ln the rapidly growing
West, and an Indication of the sterling judgment and ability of one who
has so well turned those opportunities
to account.

paramount  Influence in the territory
In which It circulated.
Nothing is more certain than that
the Phenix has adhered to the policy
It laid down for Itself at the time of
Its establishment, nor that, by so doing, it has achieved one of the notable successes of western journalism.
Outside one or two others, no territorial newspaper is more carefully
read by the editors of the big dailies
than the Phenix. It contains all the
news of its big district, and it is always put together in a readable,
workmanlike manner. Its editorial
comment Is temperate in tone, and
welgthy in proportion to its moderation. Its typography leaves nothing
to bo desired, for every Issue is brightly printed. The confidence and pride
of the Saskatoon business men in
their paper Is attested by the many
columns they take each week to tell
of the business news of their stores.
Mechanically, tho Phenix is an excellent paper—a credit to western-jour
nalism in general, to the staff that
gets It out, and to the supply house—
the Toronto Type Foundry Company
—which furnished the material.
Tho Phenix is owned by a company, one of the principal shareholders being the managing director and
the controlling spirit of the concern,
Dr. John Henry Charles Wllloughby.
His is the personality of which the
paper is a reflection. He It was that
in the flrst place set the metes and
bounds of its policy, and it has been
he that has seen to It that the Phenix
from week to week travelled on the
course he hnd marked out for It. Dr.
Wllloughby Is even more interesting
than bis paper. He has al! tho personal qualities noted nt the beginning
of this sketch, and, naturally, his
popularity in and about Saskatoon Is
unbounded. Furthermore, he is a
notable and picturesque figure in the
life of the Territories. He came to
Saskatoon when it was nothing more
than a name on the map, twenty-one i
vears ago, ln 18Rl>. He was then hardly more than a boy, being twenty-three
vears of age, having been born at Co-
.ourg, Ont., In '01. In the interval
ho had been educated at Peterborough Collegiate Institute, at Upper
Canada College and at Victoria University, hatl graduated In medicine
with the M.D.C.M. degrees, and had
taken post-graduate courses at both
London and Edinburgh.
In 1885 thero broke out the Metis
rebellion in the Northwest, and
througout the whole of it Dr. Wllloughby served as surgeon and purveyor-general. He lt was who sent
the despatch to the Government, Intimating that the halfbreeds were arming. Dr. Wllloughby was the flrst
prisoner captured by Rlel, and on his
escape his knowledge of the country
caused him to be selected as despatch bearer by General Middleton
to telegraph-head at Clark's Crossing
after the fall of Batoche.
In 1S87—years before the Renaissance of Saskatoon—Dr. Wllloughby
removed to Reglna, where he at once
took a prominent place in the life of
the Territorial capital. He was for
six years In the council, and ln 1892
was elected mayor. He was always,
during the whole term of his residence
In Reglna, one of the most active
members of the Board of Trade. For
fourteen years he has been a Justice
of the peace.
In 1900 Dr. Wllllougby returned to
Saskatoon. He owned ono half of the
town site, and was appointed agent
for the trustees of the other half.
With tho wonderfully rapid development of the town, his real estate interests kept him pretty fully occupied.
However, ho finds time to superintend
a fine farm, In ntldlton to his edltorlnl
and financial duties. Ho had 500
acres under cultivation last season,
and owns one of the finest pure bred
Ayrshire herds In the Dominion.

Ancient  Tailors' Laws,
An old labor law ln England In fore*
in 1783 contained tbe following six
clauses: Any tailor who Joined a union
was to be sent to Jail for two months.
Tailors must work from 0 o'clock ln
the morning until 8 at night Wages
were not to be higher than 48 cents a
day. Each tailor was to be allowed 3
cents for breakfast. Any tailor who refused to work was to be Imprisoned
for not more than two months. If any
employer paid higher wages be was to
be fined $25, and the workmen who
took the Increase were to be sent to
Jail for two months.

Chatham Incubator
Poultry raising with a Chatham
Incubator is a very profitable and
easily managed occupation. Unless
you want to go into it extensively it
need take but very little of your time.
Government reports show that the
demand for chickens in Canada is
greatly in excess of the supply and
Great Britain is always clamoring
for more. That means a steady
market and good prices for chickens.
You cannot raise chickens successfully with a setting hen. She ia wasting time sotting when she should be
laying. While she is hatching and
brooding a lew chickens she could be
laying five or six dozen eggs. The
percentage of chickens she hatches is
much less than that produced by the
Chatham Incubator.
It will pay you lo own a Chatham
Chatham Incubators contain every
improvement of importance in Incubator construction that has been produced. They are made of thoroughly
seasoned wood, with two walla, case
within case. Between these walls
mineral wool is packed forming the
very best insulation. Each piece of
the case is mortised and grooved and
screwed, making the whole as solid
as a rock. Chatham Incubators are
equipped with scientifically perfect
regulators which are an infallible
means of regulating the temperature.
No cash to pay until
October, 1905.
We will start you raising poultry
for profit with a Chatham Incubator

Ike   Method   That   la   Followed   In
Some London  Restaurants.
-Tipping has been reduced to a very
fine system In some English hotels and
restaurants. "I was sitting at meat
with the manager of one of tbe well
known London restaurants," says a
writer. " 'I am short sighted and unobservant,' I said, 'and as I never
know one waiter from another I'm always uneasy lest I've tipped tbe wrong
one.' Tbe manager laughed. 'Frits,
bring tha book,' he said. The book
was opened upon the table and disclosed columns and rows of figures opposite tha names of waiters. Between
them tha manager and Fritz explained
tbe system.
"Every penny given In tips was cast
Into a common fund In charge of a
waiter elected by his fellows. At the
end of the week the sum was distributed. Three classes were arranged by
the manager, according to efficiency,
and the shares were ln corresponding
proportions, so that the Junior who
hovers with the sauce ls by no means
equally rewarded with the expert who
can advise ln the matter of wine.
"Walters keep a jealous eye on their
fellows, and the man suspected of
pocketing a tip finds his position untenable. The system ls good for tbe
public, since lt diminishes the unpleas-
Ing personality of a charitable action.
It ls good, too, for the waiters, since
that record of the weekly gratuities
showed that the best waiters made
about $2,000 a year In tips."

'The question of establishing a weekly

'before both the City Council and ths
-electorate, and it now remains for the
uldermen to show their bona fides and
■carry out their election pledges. The

upwards of $2,000,000 worth of agrlcnl-
■turr-l products are required by the citizens of Vancouver annually ito supply
Wthelr ordinary household wants, all •of

sending the money to California, Waah-

Why labor then ye hardy sons of toll,
To send  yonr  earnings    to  another
'To "buTld up other nations, other lands,
And let your own be desolate as des-

A committee has been appointed by
?the City CounSlI to -select a atte or

1 whether tbat committee will report ln
rtlme for any action to be taken this
year remains to be proved.

■The site Indicated has excellent factll
ties for railway, tramway and water

satisfactorily, ln addition to which
'Westminster Avenue forms  the  main
• artery of communication with the nir-
.al districts to the south of the City,
-and from whence the great bulk of the

The Gospel of Longevity.
A Prophet of good cheer has arisen
who proclaims that. In spite of the
numerous destructive forces which
tend to shorten human life, It is possible, by the proper understanding of
human possibilities and the exercise of
this knowledge, to continue ln the enjoyment of good health aijd activity for
a century and a half. Asjlt is a physician who advances this encouraging
opinion—and he gives it as the result
of over thirty years' careful Investigation of the subject—lt at least merits
consideration. Among the forces most
Inlmioal to longevity Immorality ls cited, and those who call tp mind the
physical wreckage of the man about
town of forty and upwards can easily
confirm the physicians dictum in this
regard. All the so-called gay life that
Involves the girl and the man, and
those evil habits that are more exclusively masculine—the tipple and the
weed—are also among the most destructive forces. Untoward climate
conditions are, of course, most important factors in the shortening of human life, both torrid and frigid zones
exercising a. marked tendency to reduce
There ls no more wholesome doctrine
thun that man can prolong his days
belond the three-score-and-ten limit,
and be not merely a hanger-on of life,
but an active worker. The tendency
In this country has been to exalt youth
and discourage age, the churches leading the way In establishing a dead-line
for ministers at fifty, thus shortening
a specially trained man's usefulness to
about a quarter of a century. Nothing
more wasteful or cruel can be imagined than to encourage the habit of regarding those past forty or fifty as
cumberers of the ground. To an extent which is incalculable the mere
holding of such opinions by the general
public tends to bring about premature
old age, as persons approaching the
forty mark become discouraged from
continuing activity beyond the mere
bupplylng of physical needs. The premature laying oneself upon the shelf
Is a sad waste for the individual and
the community, and lt is so unnecessary. Nothing but reprobation is deserved by those In authority who discourage the ambition to live long and
to work well. To be told by a con-
apicuously placed medical practitioner
that forty years is the limit of the
productive age, and that life after that
Is practically vegetation, Is to put
stumbling-blocks in the way of the fit
who have passed that age, and to confirm many employers ln the quite erroneous Idea that only youth is desirable as an aid. Such half-baked views
of life are positively paralysing in
their effect upon those already approaching the Scriptural limit, and to
those also who are coming upon the
unnatural dead-line. In the case of
the first-named lt robs life of hope and
tends to make them the mere vegetables the falBe teacher says they must
How the usual point of view affects
elderly persons is well exemplirle by
the effect upon persons of seventy of
the effort made by a woman in her
prime to spread the gospel of a useful
longevity. She proclaims her fixed determination to attain for herself the age
of one hundred and forty years—an
ambition she is Intelligently working to
compass. Naturally, her odd views
provoke comment, but it Is noticeable
that the effect of her longevity propaganda ls to brighten and encourage
even those on the sunny side of forty.
As for really elderly people, they nre
positively grateful, since she ls, they
say, the first person they ever encountered who did not make them feel like
unseaworihy hulks, and they are encouraged to 1_ecome usefully active and
to fall again Into the ranks o* the procession of human being3 who do
The gospel of longevity makes for
personal purity, temperance in eating
ami drinking, physical cultioe and a
rational going back to nature—an up-
Hft'ng programme which conserves
such precious things as human life and
human activity.

American beauty roses are the smart
choice this season for hat trimming.
They never look better than when combined with violets, or heliotrope, or lilacs mauve, or lilacs white; Pairing
them ln this fashion gives the hat
trimming a Parisian touch. One o:
two roses, but no more, if the best et
fects are to be had.
All stitcherles come now Into play,
both as hand work trimmings and finishes for gown. This is most interesting to the maid or matdon who does
her own dressmaking. For white work
—let us say the front of a chemisette or
the front of a shirt waist—It would be
worth while to take a few lessons ln
the  fancy stitches now  taught.
Bodices are often out on the bias,
back and front, their fullness laid In
plaits on the top of shoulder seams,
and then draping the bust. There is
usually an opening In front to disclose
a high collaiband and chemisette. The
shape of that opening ls exploited In
a variety of ways, generally by narrow
lines, either pointed, looped or sauare,
while the lower part of the bodice
fronts have some slight trimming to
match the apron front. Small vest
suggestions, not over an inch in width,
show to advantage. Upon them small
fancy buttons and straps are frequently
used. The chief trimming effects are
however, obtained from a simple colored taffeta In harmony with the check
silk. Narrow taffeta knlfe-p'.aited ruf-
flies and straps give a charm to such
gowns. Elbow sleeves are kept on the
bias ln gathered fullness at the top,
and then entered Into cuff-bands, with
white lingerie sleeves below them, or
else the gauntlet ls carried from elbow
to wrist in silk, and strapped across
with bands of colored taffeta, on the
edges of which are slde-plaltings of
narrow "Valenciennes lace. The same
Idea may he carried out In making up
changeable silks, as ls seen constantly.
Tbe surplice crossings in the back, with
narrow lace separating the folds on the
bias and finished off with a short or a
long strap postillion, gives a perfect
line to a figure having what is called a
straight, flat back.
Princesse gowns still remain a dress
feature of extreme elegance, as only
extravagant fabrics will render that
model full Justice.
Silk braids Interwoven with several
colors are ln shapes of one color or
plaided ln white and a single color as
well as woven Into various designs, are
among the new tailor trimmings that
are yet to be admired upon light cloth
costumes when mild Spring days permit
the wearing of them. In solid colors
very beautiful are the braids with flat
or raired"designs in damask styles of
weaving. The narrowest braids also
attract attention by their unusual pret
tineas, and If used with skill give great
No trimming of any kind on gown
costume, coat or Jacket can be said to
meet fashion's approval without few
or many buttons assisting. Their variety Is endless, and novelty marks
them. One of the latest button features is the suite of three sizes—all ln
perfect accord. Small buttons suggest
dainty uses, even upon chiffons and
lace. Superb, too, are the Jeweled buttons so greatly ln vogue, and so Indis
pensable to the period style of bodice
costume or short coat. Few of them
only are used, but too fine and costly
they cannot be.
Extravagance lt may be called to
have a numerous supply of belts, but
without them there is no possibility
of smart dressing. Belts include
buckles In many cases, and both gold
and Jeweled ones are the craze. Vertl
cal slides for the deeply pointed belts
In pairs, for front and back of belts,
and beautifully Jeweled-are charming
for full dress. Jeweled buttons for
belt trimmings are equally attractive.
Jeweled belt fasteners are larger than
ever, consequently more showy, but as
the pointed belts lead off so completely the straight belt Is more confined to
ribbon sashes. Fortunately for those
who prefer them, there ls not the
slightest fear that sashes are to lose
favor. The exceeding beauty of the
newest sash ribbons prove that.
An omelet celestlne makes a pleasing
dessert as nn informal luncheon or dinner. Beat six eggs without separating
the yolks and whites, until well mixed
and foamy. When a full spoonful can
be taken out of the bowl they are sufficiently beaten. Mix with them two
ounces of powdered macaroons, two
tablespoonfuls of sugar and one-
fourth teaspoonful of salt. Place a
tablespoonful of butter in a pan; when
hot, put in the eggs; and cook until
Just set. Spread the surface with finely chopped canned pineapple, using one
cupful, and fold the omelet over, rolling
It Into a hot dish. -Sprinkle with powdered sugar, pour over it half a small
wlneglassful of brandy, and set on fire.
Serve at once; or dip a doaen cubes of
sugar ln brandy; place these over the
omelet, set on fire and serve.
Potatoes on the half shell is an unusual method of serving this vegetable.
Wash large potatoes, bake until tender, and with keen-edged knife cut ln
halves, lengthwise. Remove the pulp
without breaking the skin. Pass the
pulp through a vegetable press, add to
every pint two tablespoonfuls of but
ter, half a cupful of hot milk and the
stiffly-beaten    whites    of  three eggs.
A Violet,  lovely ln  contour and tone,
A-droop in the air of a city;
It  rivaled  the hues of the  amethyst
'Twaa  fragrant    and    graceful  and
It lay for a span
On the heart of a man—
The heart of the man stirred  with
A Lily, patrician and spotlessly pure,
Gold  petaled,   white   blossomed   and
A marble-like sheath human blood to
Or cover a heart warm and tender.
A man, ln his pride,
Made the Lily his bride—
And coldly admired its splendor.
A Rose which spilled color and lavish
ed perfume
On worshiping wind by It blowing,
A flower so sweet    In    Its   ravishing
That the lover who watched lt growing
Enshrined by love's art

And his heart, like the Rose, ls glowing.
The Lily will wither, the Violet fade,
But the Rose ls more than a fashion;
For the hearts of strong men have ever
Their  demand  for  the  red-rose  ration—
And pity and pride
Will be brushed aside
