instructive nnmber on the program, in
which tbey illustrated the cruel fate a
Chinese girl is subjected to and the
good work carried on by the Missionaries in rescuing them from their
miserable plight. Two solos in Japanese
by Mrs. Goro Euburagi and an
address by Rev. Goro K', .urogi were
interesting numbers on the program.

Mt. Pleasant Girls Win at Basket Bail
at North Vancouver.
The Mt. Pleasant ladies' team, better known as the B. B .B. B., went
over to North Vancouver on Wednes-
day evening. After a long walk up
somewhere near the summit of Grouse
mountain thfcy reached the little hall,
which was soon after the scene of
considerable punishment for thle visiting five.
The North quintette,- it is said, play
right along with the boys, which, no
doubt, with their ignorance of the offi
cial B. B. guide, accounts for tht very
rough game. It is hoped they will
look up the guide, particularly rule ii,
before the return game. Our girls
speak very highly of the North girls,
but not so about one or to of the boys.
The Red and Greens lined up as follows: Miss Hilda Thompson, centre;.
Miss Erne Flumerton, right forward;
Miss Olive Morrison, left forward;
Miss Edith Jackson, left back; Miss

'The Filigree Ball, |
"1 can only repeat    what    1    once
heard said about this b.v "Mr.  Jeffrey \
himself. Miss Tuttlo liud just left tho .
dining-room and   Mrs.    Jetreey. 'was
standing in one ot hor bluck moods,
with hor hand    on    the  top of    lier '
chair, ready to go but    forgetting to j
do so.    I was there,  but    neither   of j
them noticed me; lie was   staring   at j
her, and she was looking down. Neither  seemed  at ease.      Suddenly    be
spoke and asked,     'Why must    Cora !
remain    wilh us?'       She Blurted and ,
her  look  grew strange and   frightened.        'Because I want her to,'    sh*
cried.   1     can     not    Ine     without .
Cora.' "
Those words, so different from whut
we wore expocting,  caused  a    sensation in the room und consequently   a '
stir.   As  tho    noise oi    shilling feet i
and moving heads begun to bo hcurd .
in all directions, Miss Tuttle's   bead \
drooped a little, but Francis   Jeffrey i
did not betray any sign of feeling or
even of attention.    The coroner,  om- j
brought up tne required meal sbe
was astonished to lind the door open
aiid herself bidden to enter. The
sight which met her eyes staggered
her. From ono emi of the room to
the other wero signs of greut nervous unrest and of terrible suffering.
Tho chairs were pushed into corners
as if the wretched bride had tramped
the floor In an agony of excitement.
Curtains were torn and the piano-
cover was hanging half on and half
off tho open upright, as lf she hnd
clutched at it to keep herself from
falling. On tho floor beneath lay
several pieces of broken china—vases
of whoso value Mr. Jeffrey had often
spoken, but which, Jerked off with
tlio cover, bad been left whero they
fell; while immediately in front of
tha fireplace lay one of tho rugs tossed into a lump, as if bhe had rolled
In It on the lloor or used it to
smother her cries of pain or anger.
So much for tho state in which the
witness found the boudoir.    Tho   ad-
barrassed, perhaps, by this exhibition ] joining bed-room was not    In    much
of silent misery so neur him, hesitated a little before be put his uext
question. Lorotta, on tho contrary,
had gathered courage with every
word she spoke and now looked
ready for anything.
"It waa Mrs. Jeffrey, then, who
clung most determinedly to hor sister?" the coroner finally suggested.
"I have told you what she said."
"Yet these sisters spent but little
time together?",
"Very little; as little as two persons could who lived together in one
Thin statement, which ROAmnrl su-h
■^ contradiction     to  hor  former one,
appointment     was   covertly*" stown
when the coroner veered off from
this topic and brusquely inquired:
"Did you ever know Mr. and   Mrs.
Jeffrey to have any open rupture?"
The answer was a decided one.
"Yes.     On    Tuesday morning   [ire-
ceding her death they had a- long and
angry talk in their own room,  alter
which Mrs. Jeffrey made np further
effort to conceal her wretchedness.
Indeed, one muy say she began to
die from that hour."
Mrs. Jeffrey's death had occured on
Wednesday evening.
"Let us hear what you    have    to
sny about    this    quarrel antl    what
°      happened after it."
The girl, with a renewed flush, cast
a deprecatory look at the mo.*:, of
faces beforo her, aud, meeting on all
■ides but one look of intense and
growing interest, drew up hor neat
figure with a relioved air and begun
a story which I will proceed to
transcribe for you in the fewest pos-
sfble words.
Tuesday    morning's breakfast     hud
been a Bilent one.   Thore had .been a
ball the night before at    some great
place on Mussaclmsetts Avenue;    but
no one    spoke of    it.       Miss Tuttle
made some remark ubout a friend slio
had met there, but us no one listened to her, sho soon stopped and in a
little while left the table.    Mr.    and
Mr». Jeffrey sat on, but neither suid
anything.      Finally Mr. Jeffrey    roso I
and, speakfng in a voice hardly    re- j
cognizable, remarked    that    ho    hud :
something to say to her, and led the
way to     their    room.      Mrs.  Jeffrey
looked    frightened as    she    followed
him; so frightened that it   was   evident    that    something very    serious
had occurred or wns about to   occur
between them.   As nothing    of    this
kind had ever happened  before,'   Lo-I
retta could not help  waiting    pbout!
till Mr. Jeffrey reappeared; and when
he did so and she saw no    signs  of
relief    In his face or    manner,     she
watched, wi.h the silly interest,of a
gfrl who had nothing else to   occupy
her mind, to sec if ho would leave tho
house in such a mood, nnd    without
making peace with liis young    brido.
To her surprise he did not go out at
the usual  time]  but went    to    Miss
Tuttle's room, where for a full half- \
hour he remained closeted    wilh    his
sister-in-law,  talking in excited    and'
unnatural tones.   Then he went   back
for a   few  minutes to where    lie had I
left his     wife,  In    her own boudoir.
But he could not have had much    to
say to her this time, for ho presently |
came    out again     and  ran    hastily
downstairs   and out,  almost without
stopping to catch up his hat.
As it was Mary's business, nnd not
the witness', to make Mrs. Jeffrey's
bed in tho morning, Loretta could
think of no excuse for approaching
her mistress' room at this moment;
but lator, when letters cuiiie, followed by various messages and some
visitors, she wont more thun a dozen
tlmos to Mrs. Jeffrey's door. She wus
not admitted, nor were her appeals
answered, except by a sharp "tio
away I"
Nor was Miss Tuttle received uny
better, though she tried morn thun
once to see her -inioi-, especially us
night came on und the hour approached lor Mr. Jeffrey', return. Tills.
Jeffrey was simply determined lo remain alone; und when dinner timo
arrived, and no Mr. Jeffrey, sho
could only be Induced to open her
door only wldo enough to tnke in
tho cup of tea which Miss Tuttlo
insisted upon sending her.
The witness here confessed that she
had been very much excited by theso
unusual proceedings and by the effect
which they seemed to have ou tho
lady Just mentioned; so she was
ready to notice that Mrs. Jeffrey's
hand shook liko that of un old and
palsied woman when she reached out
for tho tray.
Gladly would Loretta have caught
one glimpse of her face, but lt wus
hidden by the door; nor did Mrs.
Jeffrey answer a single ono of ber
questions. She simply closed her
door and kept it so till toward midnight, when Miss Tuttle, coming into tho hall, ordered tho house to lie
closed for the night. Then the long-
shut door softly swung open, hut be-.
fore any one could reach it. It was
again pulled to and locked.
The next duy brought no rellei.
Miss" Tuttle, who hnd changed giv.it-
ly during this unhappy day und
I night, succeeded no better thun before in getting access to ber sister,
nor could Loretta gain the Irusl
word from her mistress till towurd
tho latter part of the afternoon,
when that lady, ringing her boll,
gave" her^'lirst order.
"A substantial dinner," she cried;
and ylteu Lprottu,  greatly    relieved.
better case, though it was evident
that tho bed itself had not been lain
in since it was made up the day before at breakfast time. By this
token Mrs. Jeffrey had not slept the
night before, or if she had laid her
head anywhere it hud boen on tho
rug already spoken of.
Those signs of extreme mental suffering, so much more sxtreine than
any Loretta had ever before witnessed, frightened her so that the tray
shook in her hand as she set it down
on the table among the countless
objects     Mrs.   Jeffrey    had    always
about   her, 'I'll.    noii).      oocilicd      to
startle her mistress, who bad walked
tr»   the,,,  winflnw   oiler,   nni'llinp-      the
door, lor she wheeled impetuously
about and Loretta saw her face. It
was as if a blight had passed over
lt. Once gay and animated beyond
the power of any one to describe, it
had become in twenty-four houi'B a
ghost's face, wilh t,he glare of some
awful resolve on it. Or so it would
appear from the way Loretta described it. Dut such girls do not
always see correctly, and perhaps
all that can be safely stated is that
Mrs. Jeffrey was unnaturally pale
and had lost her butturiiy-like way of
incessant movement.
Loretta, who was evidently accustomed to seeing her mistress arrayed
in brilliant colors and much begemmed, laid great stress on the fact
that, though it was on tho verge »f
ovening and she was evidently going
out, she was dressed in black cloth
and without even a diamond or a
flower to relievo its Bovere simplicity.
Hor hair, too, which was always her
pride, wus piled in a careless mass
upon her head ns if she had tried to
arrange it herself and had forgotten
what she was doing while her fingers
wore but half through their work.
There was a cloak lying on a chair
near which she was standing) and she
held a hat in her hand; but Loretta
saw no glows. As the maid's glance
and that of her mistress crossed.
Mrs. Jeffrey spoke, and the effort she
mado in doing so naturally frightened tho girl still more. "I am going
out," were her words. "I may not
be home till late—Whut are you looking at?"
Loretta declined that the words
took her by surprise nnd that she did
not know what to say, but managed
to cover up her embarrassment by
intimating that if her mistress would
let her touch up her hair a bit she
would make her look more natural.
At this suggestion, Mrs. Jeffroy
cast a glance in llie glass and impetuously declared, "It doesn't matter." But she seemed to think better
of it the next minute; for, throwing
herself in a chair, she bade the girl
to bring a comb, and sat quiet
onough, though evidently in a great
tremor of haste and impationce, while
Loretta combed her hair and put it
up in the old way,
But the old way was not as becoming as usual, and Loretta was
wondering lf she ought to call in
Miss Tuttle, when Mrs. Jeffrey Jumped to her feet and went over to tho
table and began to cut with tho feverish haste of one who forces himself to take food In spite of hurry
and distaste.
This was tho moment for Loretta to
leave tho room; but sho did not
know how to do so. Sho felt herself
fixod to the spot ond stood watching
Mrs. Jeffrey till that lady, suddenly
becoming conscious of the girl's presence, turned, and in the midst of
the moans which broke unconsciously
from her lips, said with a pitiable
effort at her old manner:
"do away, Loretta; I am 111; I
have been ill for two days. I don't
like people to look at me like
thatl" Then, as the girl shrank
back, added in a breaking voice :
"When    Mr.    Jeffrey   comes home—"
ner bhrt ijot frilcrviiii-.n.-ncr. wnon
at this point a littlu gasp escaped
Miss 'futile and a groan broke from
Francis Jeffrey's hitherto sealed lips,
the feelings of the whole assemblage
seemed to find utterance. A young
wife's misery culuiiinating In death
on tho very spot where she had been
so lately married! What could he
moro thrilling, or appenl more closely to the general heart of humanity?
But tho cause of that misery! This
was what every oee present was eager to have explained. This is what
we now expected ths coroner to bring
out. But instead of continuing on
the line he had opened up, ho proceeded to ask:
"Whore were you when this officer
brought the news you mention?"
"In tho hull, sir. 1 opened the door
for him."
"And to whom did he lirst mention hie errand?"
"To Miss Tuttle. She had come
in just before him and was Branding
at the foot of the stairs—"
"What! Was Miss Tuttle out that
"Yes; she went out very soon after
Mrs. Jeffrey left. When sho came in*
she said that she had beeu around
the block, but alio must have gone
around it more thun once, for the
was absent two hours."
"Bid you let her in?"
"Yes, sir."
"And sho said she had been oround
tho block?"
"Yes, sir."
"Bid she suy anything else?"
"She asked if Mr.  Jeffrey had come
'Anything else?"
"Then if Mrs.  Jeffrey
had   return
"To both of which questions you
"A plain 'No.' "
"Now  tell us about the officer."
"lie rang the bell almost immediately after she did. Thinking she
would want to slip upstairs before 1
admitted any one, 1 waited a minute
for her to go, but she did not do
so, and when the officer stepped in
"She shrieked."
"What!  before he spoke?"
"Yes, sir."
"Just at sight of him?"
in    plain
and said no moro for Boveral mln-
uIum, during whirl. _i)m clutched her
throal wilh both hands and struggled with herself till she got her voice
back ami found herself able to repeat: "Winn Mr. JelTrey comes—If he
doos conic—tell him that I was right
about the way that novel ended. Be-
meinber that you are to say to him
the moment vou seo him that I was
right about tho novel, ond that he
is to look and see if It did not end
ns I said it would. And Loretta—"
hore sue rose and approached the
speaker with a sweet, appealing look
which brought tears to the Impressionable girl's eyes, "don't go gossiping about me downstairs. I shan't
bo sick long. I am going to be better soon, very soon. By the time
you seo mo here again I shall be
quito like my old self. Forget how-
how"—and Loretta said sho seemed
to have difficulty in finding the
right word here—"how childish I
have been."
Of courso Loretta promised, but she
ls not sure that she would have
had the courage to keep all this to
herself If sho had not heard Mrs. Jeffrey stop ln Miss Tuttle's room on
hor way out. That relieved her, and
enabled her to go downstairs to her
own supper with more appetite than
she had thought ever to have again.
Alas! it was the lust good moal she
wus able to cat for days. In three
hours aftorward a man came from
the station-house with tho news of
Mrs. Jeffrey's suicide in the horrible
old house in which sho had been
married only two weeks before.
As this had been a continuous narrating an_l concisely _told, the    £_>ro-
"Bid he wear his badge
"Yes, on his breast."
"So that you    knew him to be    s
police officer?"
"And  Miss Tuttle shrieked  at seeing a police officer?"
"Y'es,  and sprang forward."
"Did she say anything?"
"Not then."
"What did she do?"
"Waited  for him to speak."
"Which he did?"
"At once,  and  very  brutally. *  He
askod   if sho  was  Mrs.   Jeffrey's  sister, and when sho nodded and gasped
Yes,' he  blurted out that Mrs.   Jeffrey was dead: that ho had just come
from the old house ln Waverley Avenue, where she had just boen found."
"And Miss .-uttlc?"
"Didn't  know    what  to  say;    just
hid    her    face.      Sho     was     leaning
against    the    newel-post,   so  it   was
easy for her to do so.    I remember
that the man stared at her for taking it so quietly and asking no questions."
"And did sho speak at all?"
"Oh, yea, afterwards.   Her face was
wrapped   in   the  folds   of   her  cloak,
but I heard her whisper, as if to herself:    'No!   no!     That old hearth    is
not a lodostone.     She can  not have
fallen there.'   And then she looked Uri
quite    wildly   and   cried:    'There    is
somelhing more!       Something which
you  have not told me.'      'She shot
hor.self,   if that's    what    you mean.'
Miss ri\iltle's arms went straight up
over her head.     It was awful to see
hor.    'Shot herself?' she gasped. 'Oh,
Veronica, Veronica!'   'With a pistol,'
he went on—I suppose he was going
to say,     'tied to  her  wrist,'  but he
never got it out, for Miss Tuttle, at
tho   word  'pistol'  (lapped her hands
to     her    ears     and     for  a   moment
looked  quite distracted,   so  that    he
thought better  of  worrying her  any
mom and  only demanded to  know if
Mr.    Jeffroy    kept  any such  weapon.
Miss Tuttlo's face grew very strange
at this.   'Mr. Jeffrey!  was he there?'
she asked.    The man looked surprised.    'They are searching for Mr. Jeffrey,'     be    replied.      'Isn't he here?'
'No,'  came  from  hor  lips   and mine.
The  man     acted   very  impertinently.
You haven't told me whether a pistol   was  kept  here  or  not,'  said  he.
Miss Tuttle tried to compose herself,
but  I saw    thut    I should have     to
speak if any one did, so I told   him
that.  Mr.  Jeffrey  did  have a   pistol,
which  lie  kept  in  one of  his  bureau
drawers.    But when the officer wanted  Miss Tuttle to go up and seo   if
it was there, she shook her hend and
maidi- for the front door, saying that
she must be taken directly to her sister."
"And did no one go up? Was no
attempt made to see if the pistol
was or was not in the drawer?"
"Yes; the officer went up with me.
I pointed out tho place whore it was
kopt, and he ruminagied all through
it, but found no pistol. I didn't expect him to—" Hero the witness
paused and bit her lip, adding confusedly: "Mrs. Jeffrey had taken It,
you see."
The jurors, who sut vory much In
Ihe shadow, had up to this point at-
Iracted but little attention. But now
they began to make their presenco
felt, perhaps bocauso the brenk in
tho witness' words had been accompanied by a sly look at Jinny. Possibly warned b.v this that something
lay back of this hitherto timid witness' sudden volubility, one of them
now spoke up,
"In what room did you say thia
pistol  was kept?"
"In Mr. and Mrs. Jeffrey's bedroom, sir; the room opening out of
tho sitting-room whore Mrs. Jeffrey
had kept herself shut up all day."
"Does this bedroom of which you
speak communicate with the hall as
well as with the sitting-room?"
"No, sir; it is the defect of tho
house. Mr.      and     Mis.      Jeffrey
often spoke of it as a great annoyance. You hud to pass through the
little boudoir In order to reach it."
The juryman sank back, evidently"
satlsftod with her replies, but we
i»lio marked the visible excitement
with which the wilncss had answered
this weiulngly unimporlaiil qucstibn;
wondered what special Interest sur-
lOUlidMi that room and the pistol lo
wa runt ihe heightened, color with
which the girl unswui't-d this new in-
terlocutor. We were not destinod to
know at this time, for the coroner,
when l.e spoke nguin. pursued a different subject.
"How long woe this before Mr.
Jeffrey came in?"
|   "Only a few minutes.    I was   terribly   frightened at  being left    there
one of tho  other    girls to come up
and stay with mo, when I hoard his
key ln the lock and camo back.   He
had entered the house and was standing near the door talking to an officer, who had evidently eome in with
him.    It was a different officer from
the one    who  had gorie away    with
Miss Tuttlo.   Mr. Jeffrey was saying,
'What's that?    My wifo hurt!' 'Dead,
sir!' blurted out tho mun.    I had expected    to    seo   Mr. Jeffrey terribly
shocked, but not in so awful a way.
lt    really    frightened me to 6ee him
and I turned to run, but found that
I couldn't  and that I had to stand
still  and  look  whether I wanted to
or not.    Yot he didn't say a word
or ask a question."
"What did hu do, Loretta?"
"1 can not say;    ho was   on      his
knees and was white—Oh, how whito!
Yet he looked up  when  tho man described   how   and   where Mrs.   Jeffrey
had been found  and oven turned  toward     me . when    I   said - something
about his wife having left.a message
for him  when  sho went out.      This
message, which 1 almost hesitated to
give  after   tho    awful news  of    her
death, was about tlie. ending of some
story, as you remember, and it seemed heartless to  speak of it . ->t. a moment like tliis,  but as she had told
me to, I didn't dure lo disobey hor.
So, with the man listening to my overy word, and Air. Jeffrey looking as
if he would fall  to the ground liefore
1 could finish,  I repealed her words
to   him and    wns    Surprised enough
when    ho     suddenly  startod   upright
and went. Hying upstairs.    But 1 wos
more surprised yot when, at the top
of  the     lirst   (light,   he stopped,   and
looking over the balustrade, asked in
a very strange voice where Aliss Tuttle Was.     I'lqr he scorned just then to
wuni  her moiv thun anything else in
the    world     and   looked    beaten    and
will   when   I  told  him  Ihut    she was
already gone to Waverley Avenue. But
he  rei'o'e'oil  himself before tlie mun
could 'draw   near  enough to  seo    his
face,    and    rushed   Into    the sitting-
room above and    shut   the door behind him,   leaving the ofllcir and me
standing down by the fron' door. As
I didn't know what to sny to a man
like him,  nnd    ho didn't Inow  what
suy to nit', the time set.m.d long,'but
it couldn't huve been verj ninny minutes    before     Air.   Jeffreydune  back
with a slip of paiwr in lis hand and
a    very    much  relieved look  on  his
fuco.     'The deed wai premeditated,?
he  cried.    'My  unfortunate wife  has
misunderstood m.v iffevtion  for  her.'
And from being a vry much broken-
down man, he stool up straight and
tall and prepared  limself very quietly  lo  go  to  Hie  Ifoiire  house.  That
Is all I enn tell .bout the way   the
news was receiver by bim."
Were these deli'ils neci'.'.sary? Afnny
appeared to rrgnrd them as futile
and uncalled fo'. But Coroner Z.
wns never knovn to waste lime on
trivialities, and if ho called for these
Tacts, (hose wlo knew him best felt
certain that tiey were meant ns a
preparation for Air. Jeffrey's testimony,  which vas now culled for.
When Francis Jeffrey's hand fell
froui his forehead and lie turned to
faco tho assembled people, an instinctive compassion arose in overy
breast at sight of his face, which, if
not open in ils expression, was at
least surcharged with the deepest
misery. In a Hash the scene took on
new meaning. Many remembered that
less than a month before his eye hud
been joyous and his ligure a conspicuous ono among the favored sons
of fortune. And now I he stood in
sight of a crowd, drawn together
mainly by curiosity, to explain as
best he might why this great happiness and hope had eome to a sudden
termination, ancl his bride of a fortnight had sought death rather thun
continue to live under the same roof
with him.
So much for what 1 saw on thp
faces about me. What my-own faco
revealed I can not say. I only knew
that 1 strove to preserve an impassive exterior. If I sccrotlv held thi»
man's misery to be a mask hiding
untold passions and tho darkness of
an unimaginable deed, it was not for
ine to disclose in this presence either
my suspicions or m.v fears. To mo.
as to those about mc, he apparently
was a man who at some (sacrifice
to his pride, would yet be able to
explain whatever seemed dubious in
the mysterious case in which he bad
become involved.
His wife's uncle, who to all appearance i_hared the general curiosity
as to the effect which this woeful
tragedy had had upon his niece's
most interested survivor, eyed with
a certain cold interost, eminently in
keeping with his general character,
the pallid forehead, sunken eyes and
nervously trembling lip of tho once
"handsome Jeffrey" till that gentleman, rousing from his depression,
manifested a realization of what was
required of him and turned with a
bow  toward   tlio coroner.
Aliss Tuttle settled into a greater
rigidity. 1 puss over the preliminary
examination of this important witness and proceed at once to the
point when the coroner, holding out
the two or three lines of writing
wliich Mr. Jeffrey had declared to
havo been left him by his wife, asked:

with iust a gluuce at the pupcr offered him:

Influenza, Bronchitis, Pneumonia er
Consumption Often Follow a Neglected Cold—Avert the Danger by
Keeping the Blood Pure and Warm.
Heavy colds strain'the lungs, weaken the clieit, banish the appetite,
cause melancholy. Pale weak people, whoso hands and feet are chilled
for want, of rich, red blood, always
catch cold. Their lungs are soft—the
heart cannot send out blood,enough
to make them sound aud strong.
Then comes the cold and cough, racking the frame and tearing the tender
lungs. The cold may turn into pneumonia, influenza, consumption or
bronchitis—a lingering illness or a
swifter death. All weak people should
use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. , The
rich, red blood they make strengthens
the heart, and lt sends this warm,
healing blood to the lungs, and once
again the patient is a strong-lunged,
warm-blooded man or woman. Mrs.
Jane A. Kennedy, Douglastown,
Que., bears the strongest testimony
to tho value of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills In cases of this kind. She says:
"My sister, a delicate girl, took a
severe cold when almost seventeen
years old. We tried many medicines
for her, but she appeared to be constantly growing worse, and we feared she was going Into consumption.
Often after sho had a bad night with
a racking cough, I would get up to
see lf she had spit any blood. At this
stage a friend strongly urged me to
give her Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
Within a month from the time she
began to take tho pills she had almost recovered hor usual health. Under a further use of tho pills she ls
now well and strong, and I can recommend the pills with confidence to
every weak person."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a certain cure for all blood and nerve
troubles, such as anaemia, debility,
lung complaints, rheumatism, neural
Sla, St. Vitus dance, partial paraly
sis, and the troubles that make the
lives of so many women miserable.

Cancer Discoveries.
Important discoveries in connection
with cancer were announced at the
recent annual meeting In London of
tho general committee of the cancer
research fund. Distinguished experts
briefly summed up their year's work
as follows:
Civilization Is not the cause of cancer, whleh pervades animal as well as
human life and attacks all Its subjects
at relatively tho same age and periods.
It ls not an Infectious disease and Is
not transmissible from one species to
another. A cancer cell can reacquire
powers of self propagation.
Cancer ls not caused by a parasite.
The malady ls not on tbe Increase.
ltudltiiu has been found to exercise
no curative effect.
A serum has ber,. discovered from
which good results are hoped.
The first authentic cases of cancer ln
animals were minutely described by experiments which bad been made on
fish and wild mice.

The Hairy Han of Archangel.
From all parts of north Russia peasants are traveling on a pilgrimage to
an extraordinary hermit, Prokop Sele-
vitsch, who is known.ns 'the hairy man
of Archangel." Five yeara ago, ln an
excess of religious mania, he cut off all
his fingers on bis left hand. When he
beard that tbe Russians bad suffered
misfortune ln the far east he declared
lt was tbe result of tbelr sins, which
could be atoned only by a sacilflce offered to Alothcr Earth. At first be
said he did not know the significance
of this declaration. But on John the
Baptist's day he represented that he
bad been commanded to plant himself
In tbe earth and there remain until ths
unbelievers, meaning the Japanese,
were beaten or until birch leaves
sprouted from his fingerless hand. Ha
hus accordingly planted himself up to
his knees in earth ln his but. There he
now remains, with a granddaughter to
look after him.

1872, and Is therefore but a young
man. Ho was educated at tbe public
and high schools of Walkerton and
Hanover, after which he entered the
office of the Hanover Post. Commencing as "devil" he climbed until he
reached the rank of full-fledged
journeyman. Then he removed to
Toronto. He continued in the printing business until he was 20 years
of age, when he went on the road
as "drummer" for a wholesale furniture house, travelling in Ontario
and Quebec. For six years he remained In this business, receiving a
thorough training therein.
Taking the advice of Horace Gree-
MR.  E.  3.  ZINGCt
Editor  and   Proprietor   of   the
Wapella  Post
Mr. B. S. Zingg of Wapella is a
living Illustration of the truth of the
saying current among newspapermen,
that the man who l-as the ability to
conduct a successful country journal
has all the characteristics necessary
to success in almost any undertaking.
As an editor Mr. Zingg has a splendid record, but, such ls his irrepressible activity, that his editorship is
only one of the mauy forms of his
Proteau activity. The productiou
weekly of such a newspaper as the
Wapella Post might well demand and
consume the whole of the time and
talent of its proprietor. But with Mr.
Zlngg it ls otherwise—a mere segment of his work, nothing but a
necessary and incidental part of the
week's  routine.
Mr. Zingg not only writes the editorial and local matter for the Post,
pfctles the ads and looks after subscriptions and the accounts, but runs
a furniture business, does a little in
real estate and dabbles In .-insurance.
Even these do not keep entirely occupied the energetic Wapella editor. He
is the president of the local board of
trade, Into which institution he has
infused much of his own spirit of
progressive energy, and which is one
of the most virile forces for local
improvement in the Territories. And
Mr. Zingg's local patriotism does not
stop here. He is a member of the
Wapella town council, and one of the
foremost and most forceful figures in
municipal and local life In the community.
Undoubtedly the real test of ability
and worth is the regard in which a
man is held by those with whom ho
daily associates. True, It is said that
a prophet is not without honor, save
iu his own country. This .may. be
the case when a man goes into the
profession of prophecy, but It has no
application in commercial, and least
of all In editorial, life. Iu the realm
of Journalism, iu which a man is under the spot-light of public observation and criticism every minute of
the time he is awake, In which his
actions and opinions are canvassed.
judged and weighed by the whole
community, a fakir, a humbug, or a
hypocrite is soon sized up and sot
down at his true valuation. If a man
• wears well, and steadily appreciates
ln pulblic esteem, it is because he ls
"all wool aud a yard wide," and
shoddy does not enter Into his coin
position. That Mr. Zingg Is in this
class, and that his progressiveness,
his ability, and his trustworthiness
are best recognized by those who
know him most Intimately, the influence of the Pest, and the public
positions he occupies, are the most
convincing proofs.
The editor In the average Western
town has to go up against some
pretty hard propositions. He is not
ln the position of his brother In a
city, who can hew to the lino and let
the chips fall where they will. The
community from which he draws his
patronage Is restricted In ita area,
and the support of nil Is necessary to
his success. II .nuiiot compensate
for the loss or i advertiser, for Instance, by the securing of another,
and this is known by tho morchunts,
who are astute and wlso In their day
and generation, and who Bomotiines
avail themselves of the knowledge
to the advantage of themselves and
the loss of tho publisher. The coun
try editor has to bo solid with the
>churchos, keep square with the hotels,
help along tho leading fraternal nnd
.ladles' societies, placate tho chief
male kicker against nil and sundry
things as at present constituted, and,
if he can do this (antl to Biiccced he
pretty nearly has to) ho will be a big
frog in the local puddle. Evidently
from the honors accorded him E. S
Zlngg has accomplished all this —
which ls only to Bay that he has approved himself a diplomat and an
able man. i
To readers of this Journal the Wapella-Post, which Is among tho mosl
looked for and carefully read of their
Territorial exchanges, is the best
recommendation that Its editor could
desire. Its news ls brightly written
and well arranged. Its editorial ut
terances are moderate and sensible
evidently the reflection of a thought-
fuL mind. Its advertising patropagr.
Is proof positive as to the appreciation
ln which it Is held by the local merchants, and the care and taste with
which their business news Is set up
and the goneral care as to typrdgra
phy and make-up, shows that the/mechanical department Is fully the equal
qf the.others under Mr. Zingg'B man

and In Oi loher of that year established the Wiipella Post, which since that
time has continued to shed the lustre
,)f the truo light of knowledge in
over-increasing volume.
As said before, Mr. Zingg Is yel
young, like most Western editors, and
as can be seen by his "counterfeit
presentment" at the head of this
-attlcle, more than passably good looking. He is deservedly popular with
his follow scribes in the West, and
few were more welcome than he and
his amiable wife at tho annual Press
pilgrimages which marked the palmy
era of the Western Canada Press association. Mr. Zingg has already done
much in the realm of journalism since
lie came West, and more Is expected
of film, for he is justly regarded b.v
his fellows as ono of the most able
and promising of the editors of the
Canadian  West.
An Ancient Institution, Doubtless of
Jewish Origin.
We must doubtless look to the Jews
for the origin of godfathers and godmothers. The use of them ln the primitive church ls so early that lt is not
easy to fix a time for their beginning.
Some of the most ancient fathers make
mention of them, nnd through all the
successive ages afterward we find the
use of them continued without any interruption. By a constitution of Edmund, archbishop of Canterbury, 1230,
and ln a synod held at Worcester,
1210, a provision was made tbat there
should be for every male child two
godfathers and one godmother and for
every female one godfather nnd two
godmothers. King Henry VIII., referring to the Princess Elizabeth, says:
My lord of Canterbury,
I bave a suit which you must not deny
That ls, a fair young maid that yet wants
Tou must be godfather and answer for
-"Henry VIII.," Act t, Scene I.
A constitution of 1281 makes provision for a Christian name being
changed at confirmation. This ls practically a renaming of the child. The
manner in which it was done was for
the bishop to use the name ln the Invocation aud afterward for him to sign a
certificate t*ut he had so confirmed a
person by such uew name, lt is possible that this practice might have been

Facts About Flour
Of Special Interest to our
Women Readers.
A cook iB only as good as the flour
she uses.
A poor cook can make better bread
with Royal Househould Flour than a
good cook can with poor flour.
Royal Household Recipes make bake
day tho pleaaantest day of the week.
Then; are two kinds of flour, " Royal
Household" and tho kind that has not
been purified by Electricity.
"This flour ia just aa good aa" begins the
grocer. "Send me "Royal Household"
never-the-less" interrupts the woman
who knows. "I have tried ' just-as-good'
flour belore."
Nearest Gbocfb '—*>**• •*« ehn_/e 8,_.d
to send to our correspondents the name
ol the nearest grocer who handles
Royal Household Flour.
How Maut Recitis- :—We sent the ten
recipes that one ol our correspondents
asked for last week for Tier neighbors.
We are always glad to send aa many
recipes as are needed.
Tns Bi_it Pats Best:—The reason grocers find it pays to push Royal Household Flour Is not because the profit is
larger per barrel—for it isn't ao largi'—
but because It pays to please the
Royal Household Flour ia mode of the
boat grade ol hard wheat. Hard wheat
is the best spring wheat grown in
Manitoba. Soft wheat Is winter wheut
—Inferior lor flour making. Somo
millers advertise that thoy "blend"
soil and hard wheat to get better flour.
We do not blend wheat lor Royal
Household Flour.
Your test, Mrs. Home Baker, is final,
if you find "Iloy.il Household" best in
your baking, there is no argument
Every day many Canadian women
write us how pleased they aro with Royal
Household Flour
—that it is all we say it ia
—that it'e just as good lor pastry aa it
ia for bread.
—that it's quicker, easier, simpler to
bake good bread and good pastry with
Royal Household Flour, by the " Itoyal
Household" Recipes.
That's ono reason thoy like it so much.

Lane and lawn lingerie this season,
when of the choicest kind, has more
space devoted to solid lace insattings
than ever before. Underwear Of this
sort is as nearly all-lace as it can well
be made, -Coilaricss necks are the
rule, while still lower V-points back
and front are now seen on many of
the elaborate night robes. Fine hand
kerchief needlework wrought upon
linen lawn is without doubt in the
very best taste, wllcn having just
enough real lace to lighten theedges,
or to afford bars or openings to run
ribbons through.
What are called table-hats by some
shoppers, in spring and summer
styles, may now be seen.
Florists are constantly selling gar
denias for corsage adornment. They
are not conspicuously worn on the
streets, but are kept from- notice under carriagew raps. They give
charming finish to a lace waist or"To

considered quite thle smart thing to
indulge in.
Young women are doing far more
home embroidery to-day than they
get credit for. White linen waists,
collars, cuffs, parasol-covers, hat-tops
or plateaux, Vest pieces and belts in
eyelet or padded work, are their chief
fads. Eyelet embroidery is soon
learned, and becomes most effective
when finished, but has far less merit
in reality than the covered sort. That
is very encoUfagifig tp beginners.
The American Girl.
The American girl is admired and liked
at home and abroad because sbe is the
happiest, usually the healthie&t and friendliest of girls. She Is fond 9? life and is
alive to everything beautiful and good in
existence. Mrs. f.aiigtiy has said that the
American woman has little to learn from
her Euglish sisters.
Dr. Pierce, the specialist in women's diseases, of Buffalo, N, Y., advises simple ex-
trefses for women, preferably In the outdoor sir, But many women are confined
to the house and their household dudes or
their business confines them to poorly ventilated rooms.
If a woman suffers from a headache, a
backache, a sensation of Irritability or
twitching and uncontrollable nervousness,
something must be wrong with the head or
back, she naturally says, but all the time
the real trouble very often centers in the
womanly organs. In 98 psr pent, of cases
the seat of the difficulty is here, and a
woman should take rational treatment for
its cure. The local disorder snd Inflammation of the delicate .pedal organs of tbe
sex should be treated steadily and systematically.
Backed up by over t third of a century of
remarkable and uniform cures, a record
such as no other remedy for the diseases
and weaknesses peculiar to wmnen ever
attained, the proprietors and makers of Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription now feel fully
warranted In offering to pay $500 for any
.ase of I«cucorrliea, Female weakness, Prolapsus, or Falling at Womb which thoy
.111 nut euro. All thev ask is a fair ana
reasonable trial of their means of cura.
Linen Suits.
For the three-piece linen suits, Irish
lace and a new lace which shows guipure uesigns in linen thread, the motifs sold separately are thle most modish trimmings when lace is seen, but
the heavily raised or perforated hand
embroideries are so in demand that
even these laces will be sparingly
used, an for the most part showing
in the blouse and in the coat front
corners, lapels apd cuffs. for the
skirts are untrimmed in the heavy or
medium weight linens, unless tabs or
stitched .straps cap be counted as an
ornamentation. Suits of this kipd are
unlined and in walking length, nor is
any slip worn beneath the blouse.
The coats when long are seamed and
almost tight fitting at back; there is,
however, no middle-back seam; the
fronts are either loose and single-
breasted, or else have one dart. The
short coats are usually in bolero or
Eton effect, those that are fuljed at
shoulders into an embroidered border
band are usually fetching. A medium
weight linen is the favorite, as it can
be tucked or plaited at will and launders more pasily. The separate linen
skirts are either plaited with a yoke,
which gives an opportunity for hand
embroidery, or are many gored, from
eleven to fifteen, with seams stitched
and embroidered in small panels between the seams just above hem.
These and mohair skirts are worn
with the separate blouses.
Thle wealth of color soon to be the
dominating influence of all street'
dress. Note the chamelon silks as
well as shaded silks which are to be
exploited in suits and costumes as
brilliant examples of spring's modish-
ness. Consider with them the wearing
of flower turbans and straws of vivid
colors, of all shapej trimmed with
flowers of gayest hue, then fancy a
picture palpitating with a moving
brilliancy as the crowds form into
processional promenades.
Very good idea it is to. supply half
long lace sleeves—ready to be basted
in whlen required. These are sold in
connection with a high chemisette, or
a high collar-band, and are most essential to elbow-sleeve costumes,
when required to be worn by day as
well as for evening wear. Ia fact
many women require three distinct
furnishings for each bodice. A chemisette, a plastron, or collar-band, ss a
neck and open front finish. After that
a pair of lower lace sleeves closely
shaped to the arm,   and   lastly   the
No one pays any attention to old
superstitions, pjaeosk feathers are
now in vogue, and the design is reproduced upon fans, jewelry, and upon
divers ornamental belongings—clasps,
buckles, brooches, card-cases, etc,
just as cabuclitau opals are seen set
in various ways. Butterflies, both as
ornaments and designs, are also having a decided vogue.
