For a detective whoso talents had
not been recognized at headquarters,
I possessed an ambition which, fortunately for my standing with the
lieutenant of tho precinct, bad not
yet been expressed in words, Though
1 had jsinstil reason for expecting
great things ot myself, 1 had always
cherished the hope that i( u big case
caine my wuy 1 Should lie ienind nble
to do something- with il—something
moro, that is, thnn i hud seen accomplished bV the police of tho
District of Oolumbia since i
had the honor ol being onu
of their number. TboroforO, when
I found myself plunged, almost
without my own volition, into tho
Jcflrcy-Moore ufTdir, I believed thut
the opportunity had come whereby I
might distinguish myself.
It had complications, this JolTrey-
Mooro alTuir; greater ones than the
public ever knew, keen as the interest in it ran both in and out ut
This is why I propose to toll the
story of this great tragedy from my
own standpoint, oven if in so doing
I risk the charge of attempting to
exploit my own connection with this
celebrated case. In its course I encountered as many disappointments
as triumphs, nnd brought Out of the
affair a heart as soro us it was
satisfied; for I am a lover of women
But I am keeping you from tho
story itsolf.
I was at the station-house the
night Uncle David cume in. lie was
always culled Undo David, even by
the urchins who follo'.ved him in the
streot; so I am showing him no disrespect, gentleman though be is, by
giving him a title which as completely characterized him in those days,
as did his moody ways, his quaint
attire and the persistence with which
he kept ut his side his great mastiff, Itudge.
1 had long since heard of the old
gentleman as one of the uiost intcr-
' testing residents of the precinct. I
hud even seen him more than once
on the avenue, but I hud never before been brought face to face with
him, and consequently had much too
superficial a knowledge of bis countenance to determine offhund whether
the uneasy light in his small gray
eyes was naturul to them, or simply
tbe result of present excitement. But
when he began to talk 1 detected an
unmistakable tremor in his tones,
and decided thut he was in a state
of suppressed agitation: though he
appeared to have nothing more
alarming to impart than the fact
that he had seen a light burning in
some houso presumably empty-
It was all so trivial thut I gave
hiin but scant attention till he lot
a name fall which caused me to
prick up my cars and even to put in
a word. "The Moore bouse," he hud
"Tho Moore house?" I repeated in
amazement. "Are you speaking of the
Mooro bouse?"
A thousand recollections cuine with
tho name.
"Whut other?" ho grumbled, directing towhrd me a look as keen us
it was impatient. "Do you think Unit
I would bother myself long about u
bouse I hud no interest in, or drug
Itudge from his warm rug tti rOA'o
some ungrateful neighbor frum a
possible burglary? No, it is my
bouse which somo rogue hns chosen
to enter. That is," he suavely corrected, as he saw surprise in every
eye, "tho house which the law will
give nie, if anything evef |_|p;iotis to
that chit of a girl uli--nVto} brother
loft behind him."
Growling some words it"} 'In- dog.
who showed a decided Inclination to
lio down where he was. the old man
made for the door and in another
moment would have been in tho
street, if I bad not,stepped ul'ler him.
"You ure u Moore tint livo iu or
noar that old house?" I asked.
The surprise wiLh which he met
this question daunted me a little.
"How long have you been in
Washington. 1 should like lu ask?"
was his acrid retort.
"Oh, some live months."
His good nature, or what passed
for such in this Irascible old man.
returned in nn Instant; and he curt.
ly but not unkindly remarked:
"You haven't learned much in lhat
time." Then, with u nod more ceremonious than muny another man's
bow. he added, with sudden dignity:
"I am of the elder brunch nntl llie
in the cottage fronting thut old
place. I nm the only resident on the
block. When you have lived here
lunger you will knmv why that cs-
peciul neighborhood is nol a favurite

with a significant hitch of his lean

for tho door.
But my curiosity was by this time
roused to fever heat. I knew moro
ubout this house than ho guve md
credit for. N,o one who had read the
papers of late, much less a man connected with the police, could help being well informed in all the details
of its remarkable history. What I
had fuiled to know was his close relationship to tbo family whoso name
for tho lost two weeks had been In
every mouth.
"Walt!" I called out. "You say
that you live opposite tho Moore
house.    You cnn then tell mc "
But ho had no mind lo stop for
any gossip.
"It wns all in the papers," he
called back. "Kcud them. Hut lirst

I'erhaps you have henrd of tho

It was standing when Waahinton

no happiness was to bo found thoro
and that sleep was Impossible under
ils roof.   That there was    some rea-
I son for this luck of rest within walls
which were not without their tragic
reminiscences, all must acknowledge.
Death had often occurred there, and
while  this  fact can  bn stated in re-
I gnrtl to most oltl houses, it is not
often that, one can say, as in this
caSc, that it was invariably sudden
antl invariably of one character. A
lifeless man, lying outstretched on a
certain hearthstone, might be found
onco in a house and awaken no special comment; but when this samo
discovery has been made twice, if
not thrice, during the history of a
single dwelling, one might surely bo
pardoned a distrust of its seemingly
home-like appointments, and discern
in its slowly darkening walls the
presence of an evil which if loft to
itself might perish in tho naturul
decay of the placo, but wliich, if
mot and challenged, might strike
aguin und make another blot on its
thrice-crimsoneil  hearthstone.
But these are ull old fables which
I should hardly presume to mention,
had lt not been for the recent occurrence which has recalled them to all
men's minds and given to tliis long
empty and slowly crumbling building an importance which has spread
its fame from one end of the country to the other. I refer to the
tragedy intending the wedding lately
celebrated there.
Veronica Moore, rich, pretty and
wilful, hud long cherished a strange
liking for this frowning old home of
her ancestors, and. at the most critical lime of her life, conceived tho
idea of proving to lierself and to
society at largo that no real ban lay
upon it save in the imagination of
the superstitious. Sn, being about
to marry the choice of her young
heart, she caused this houso to be
opened for the wodding ceremony;
with what result you know. Though
the occasion was a joyous one and
accompanied by all that could givo
cheer to such a function, it had not
escaped the old-time sluulow. One ol
the guests straying into tho room of
undent und unhallowed memory, tho
one room which had not been
thrown open to the crowd, hud been
found within live minutes of tlio
ceremony lying on its dolorous
hearthstone, dead"! and though tbo
britlo was spared a knowletlgo of tho
dreadful fact till die holy words wero
suid, u panic had seizerl the guests
and emptied the house ns suddenly
and complelely as tbough the plague
hatl been discovered there.
This is why I hastened to follow
Undo David when ho told me that
all was not right iu this house of
tragic memories.
Though past seventy, Uncle Dnvld
wns a brisk walker, and on this
night in particular ho sped nlong so
fast that he was luilf-wuy down II
Street by the time 1 hud tinned the
coiner at New  Hampshire Avenue.
His gaunt but not ungraceful figure, merged In that of the dogtrot-
ting closely at liis heels, was the only moling object in the dreary visto
of this the most desolatetl block in
Washington. As I noarod tho building, I was so Impressed by tho surrounding stillness thnt I wus ready
to vow that Ihe shadows were denser hero than olsowhoro and that the
lew gas lamps, which llicke-red at in-
lorvuls down the street, shone with
a more feeble ray than in uny othor

constant   companion soamed to  add
to llis disturbance antl affect blm
beyond all reason. I could distinguish these words amongst tho many
ho directed toward the unseen animal:
"You're n knowing one, too knowing! You so that loosened shuttor

to mc. 1 had just stepped up to
"Yes, I've come. Now what is tho
matter With  the  Mooro  house?"
Ho must have expected tho question, yet his answer was a long
time coming. His voice, too, sounded strained, and was pitched quito
too high to lie natural. But he evidently did not expect mo lo show
surprise at his manner.
"Look at thnt window ovor
there!" ho cried nt last. "That ono

"Bo still there! If you haven't the

what a fool you are. I declare," he
maundered on, half to himself and
half to me, "that dog is getting old.
Ho can't be trusted any more. He
forsakes his master just when—" Tho
rest was lost in liis throat which rattled with something more than impatient anger.
Meanwhile I had been attentively
scrutinizing the house thus pointedly
brought to my notice. 1 had scon
it many times before, but, as it happened, had never stopped to look at
it when the huge trees surrounding
it woro shrouded in darkness. Tho
black hollow of ils disused portal
looked out from shudows which acquired some of their Bomberness from
the tragi'c memories connected witb
ils empty void.
its aspect was scarcely reassuring.
Not that superstition lent its terrors
to the lonely scene, but that through
Ihe blank panes of the window, alternately appearing and disappearing from view as the shutter pointed
out by Uncle David blew to und I'ro
in the wind, I saw, or was persuaded that I saw, a beam of light which
argued an unknown presence within
walls which hud so lately been declared unlit for any mail's habitation.
"You arc right," 1 now remarked
to the uneasy figure at my side.
"Somo one is prowling through the
the house yonder. Cun it possibly bo
Mrs. Jeffrey or her husband?"
"At night aud with no gas in ths
house?    Hardly."
The words were naturul, but the
voico was not. Neither was his manner quite suited to the occasion. Giving him nnother sly glance', and
marking how uneasily he edged away
from ine in the darkness, I cried out
more cheerily than he possibly ex-
"I will summon nnother officer und
we three will just slip across and investigate."
"Not 1!" was his violent rejoinder,
as he swung open a gate concealed in
the vine's behind him. "The Jeffreys
would resent m.v intrusion if they
ever happened to hear of it."
''Indeed!*' I laughed, sounding iny
whistle; then, soberly enough, for i
was more than a little struck by tho
oddity of bis behavior und thought
liim as well worth investigation us
the house in Which he showed such
an interest: "You shouldn't let
that count. Come and see what's
up in the house you are so ready to
call yours."
But he only drew farther into the

he objected. "Veronica and 1 have

door nnd disappeared under the
vines, hanging like a shroud over
the front of the house. In another
moment tho rich peal of an organ

the prolonged bowling of Rudge,
who, cither from a too keen appreciation of his muster's music or in
niter disapproval of it,—no oae, I
believe, hus ever been able to make
out which,—was accustomed to add
this undesirable accompaniment to every strain from tho old man's hand.
The playing tlid not cease because of
those outrageous discords. On the
contrary, it increased in force and
volume, causing Kudge's expression
of pain or pleasure to increase also.
Tho result can be imagined, As I
listened to the intolerable howls of
tho dog cutting clean thrungh the
exquisite liarmonies of his master, I
wondered if the shadows cast by tho
frowning structure of the great
Mooro house were atone to blame for
Uncle David's lack of neighbors.
Meantime, Uibbarti, who was tbe
fust to hear my signal, camo running tlown the block. As ho joined
me, the light, or what we chose In
call a light, appeared again in the
window toward which my attention
had been directed.

As Manitoba and the Northwest

busy during the summer months that
a holiday during lhat season of the
year is out of the question, tncre-
fore, tho annual holiday excursions
to Eastern Canada inaugurated a
few years ago arc becoming more and
more popular every year, and one of
the first questions asked is what ls
the best and most enjoyable wuy of
milking the trip. As a continuous
railway journey through a sparsely
settled country becomes tedious, the
route through St. Paul and Chicago
is becoming moro popular overy year,
as tho excursionist can, if desired,
brook the journey by remaining over
at tho Twin Cities or Chicago. Ono
of the most popular railway lines
between St. Paul and Chicago is tho
Burlington Route, usually termed
the "Scenic Route," as that road
follows the banks of tbe famioUB Mississippi River for a distance of three
hundred miles, making a trip long to
be remcmlicred, as it affords a continuous panorama of beautiful scenery for tho entire dny. On arriving
nt Chicago tho varied points of interest aro so numerous thut a visitor may thoroughly enjoy every hour
of the timo spent there. Tho limit

agricultural papers of tho United

"A few of us farmers aro thinking
of going to the C-anadiiin Northwest
lo settle, but we are lold that, if we
get very far from water transportation that rail rates will eat up the
profits on wheat and other grains,
since the rates are so much higher
there than on our' roads in tho
Slates. They say tho Canadian Pacific having no competition can do as
if pleases in charging, and it pleases
to gvtt very high rales, as compared
with ours, and they are high enough,

Answer-f»Tho Canadian Pacific is no
more monopolistic than our roads.
Half a dozen roads may constitute u-
monopoly as well as one, and a monopoly is what the various lines
penetrating our Northwest have over
maintained, especially us to local
rates. But a few figure, will answer
your question,
Tho grain rate, per 100 pounds,
from Port Arthur, the nearest lake
port, including steerage charges and
insurance, lo Winnipeg, 481 miles, is
10 c.hts. A rato sheet .f tho Oreat
Northern road lying before us shows**
that it charges that much for around
a 140-mile haul. From Port Arthur
to Brandon, 564 miles, the rate is
13 cents. The Oreat Northern
charges the samo from Barnosvillo to
Minneapolis. 218 miles; und for a
523-milo haul il charges 18 cents,
from Minot, your state, to Minneapolis. The Canadian Pacific from
Moose Jaw, 821 miles. Is 18 cents,
while the Oreat Northern charge is
25 cents from Will'ston, G44 mile?.
Tho Canadian Pacific rate from Ed-
mouton, the centre of tho great
wheat-growing district, is 28 cents,
and the distance is 1,468 milos.
Many more comparisons conld bo
given but these are typical of all.
and tbey apply to ull oul northwestern roads ns well ns lo Iho Oroat
It requires no argument to com
vince one thnt our roads can afford
to transport grain cheaper thon tho
Canadian Pacific Railway can, because (hey run through more thickly
settled regions, creating immcnsely

The thousands of people who
write to me, saying that
To thoso unfumiliar with the circumstances which condition newspaper work in tho Canadian West, few
things aro more remarkable than the
way that two, or even three, successful newspaper ventures are carried
on in towns so small that in the
East there would not have been one
local paper—and successful papers,
too, are issued from places' that have
populations of less than two hundred people, and dozens of places
could bo cited as having populations
of less than a thousand from which
two good papers are issued each
weok. In part, this is duo to tho
larger territory these papers serve,
in comparison with similar papers
published in the East. The more congested population in that part of
Canada, and tho greater nearness of
tho towns to each other, and, principally, tho rapidity with which thu
train services allow the big dailies
of Toronto and other cities to come
to almost every one of the villages
und small towns. But iu the West
the circimiBtances nre different. Tliis
is a country of magnificent distances.
News takes long in travelling, whon
the means of communication is a bi
—or tri-daily mniil service, and the
impatient go-a-hcod-itiveness of tho
avorago Westerner Will not tolerate
any such dolay. But there is another
important factor that has a bearing
on tho western newspaper business.
Tho citizens of aUnost every village
regard thoir chosen location ns destined to becomo ono of the important centres of tho West. They survey it, not in the light of actual accomplishment, but by the eye ol
faith. In their minds' eye the primitive shack and the temporary store
are replaced by the hnndsoiiie brick
or stone block and tho commodious
office suite. With true progressive-
ness thoy recognize that if their
dream of civic and commercial
growth is to como true, the Widest
possible publicity must be given to
tho advantages offered by their town.
And, sinco they know that there arc
dozens of other towns competing
against their own for pre-eminence,
they seek to have established at as
early a da to as possible in their
town's history a town newspaper. If
tho publisher arises to the level of
his opportunity—if his paper worthily reflects, not alone tho news,    but   	
the hopos and ambitions of the place   Harper   &
from whenco it is issued, ho.will hnve lKuged for
no   reason   to   complain   of any lack '
of support.   Tho western paper  that
is loyal to its home town will in every caso find  the town  a loyal  supporter,   and the intensity of  its support is in ninny cases in inverse ratio to tho town's size.
Tho Deloraine Advertiser ls nn illustration of the truth of the foregoing romarks. Deloraino is not e I
big town. If it wero in Ontario instead of Manitoba it would not be
remarkable if it had no local paper
at all. But, being in Manitoba,
where a local paper Is considered almost as much a matter of course as
a postofllce, it has two. Furthor-
moro, both aro successful. The appo-
,tlto for reading of all kinds grows
Iby whnt it foods on, nnd a commtini-
ity thnt has one good paper will very
iprobably support another, provided
ithe second is conducted with etptti!
.or greater ability. The Instinct of
ifair play, inherent In Canadians, Will
•hiako lim-iy wnmt to umliirstniid 'both
isrdos of nn argument, nnd hence subscribe to papers presenting opposite
political views. Perhaps this fact
lhad somewhat to do with tho success
.of the Deloraine Advortlsor. Its com-
.petltor, the Deloraine Times, wns un
'old established and reliable supporter of the Liberal policy. It presented
lits case, genorally with moderation,
*nd often with skill. But it was
published ln a district tho political
-complexion of which was preponder-
-etingly Conservative, and hence,
when Mr. Frank Lush, decided that
be would locate in Deloraine, and
publish a local paper of Conservative tendencies, he found a clientele
to which he could cater, and encouraging prospects for success. This
was more than Ave years ago, aad
events havo abundantly Justified his
4 dgmunt.
Mr."Lush had come west in May,
i898, and up to the timo of his locating In Deloraine ho had had an
uphill fight against fortune. He had
come out from Ontario at tho Invitation of somo citizens of Napinka,
■ who wan tod that place to havo its
own local paper. Whether or not

March, 1899, the first number of tho
Deloraine Advertiser.
Against tne keen competition of tho
long established Times, tho Advertiser jvon its way slowly. But with
each succeeding season its success
was more pronounced, and to-day it
is acknowledged as one of tho best
representatives of the local press of
the province. Typographically it is
ono of the best looking sheets of the
West, for Mr. I,ash's long service in
tho mechanical branch of "the art
preservative" has made him critical
and exacting on thut score. Its local
news is covered adequately, the mat-
tor being written With brightness
and vim. As before staled, the Advertiser gives aa independent support
to Ihi- Conservative party, and its
editorial utterances have hud their
share in moulding publio opinion in
tho section through which it circulates. In point of advertising' patronage, the Advertiser is now almost,
if not quito, on n pur with its much
older competitor. Altogether, the
Advortlsor is a tribute to the energy
and the pluck of its fbti'nder, us much
as to his ability as a printer und
editor. In addition, it is a tribute
to the enterprise of the Deloraine
people, who have given it such hearty
and consistent support.
Mn. Lush is an Englishman by
birth, but knows nothing of the bind
of his nativity, for he wus brought
out to Canada at the age of three.
The family home was at Khnfts'l/tiry—
the scat of the late earl of that
name—in Dorsetshire', and from tliis
borne two of his uncles had previously emigrated to Canada. They
had located ut l'eterboro, (Int., and
tlllthor (ho l.ush family moved on
coming to tho Dominion. At this
town young l.ush received his e-ducu-
tion, and after a course nt the business college, at the nge of eighteen,
entered tho job department of the
l'eterboro Examiner, of which the
Hon. J. 11. St ration Is proprietor.
After spending five years in this office, ho went into business fur himself, buying out the print shop, of
Co. He hud been so on-
x yeur wnen the before
mentioned offer of Napinka citizens
determined him to come west.
Mr. Lush is yet a young man, being less thnn thirty yenrs old. He
seems destined to succeed in other
enterprises In addition to his chosen
business of nowspuper work, for he
has recently gone into other lines of
activity, and with excellent prospects. Among his townsmen he Is
respected and desrvedly popular, and
his career, alike as n Journalist, a
business man and a representative
citizen, seems lull of promise.

promises wero profuse and plenty, aud
the prompt action of the Water-works

favpiablp contrast to that o_ the Police

.Many reasons are being advanced
why the Conservatives made a sweeping
Victory—22 majority—iu tho Outnrio
ejections. The fear of corporations and
trusts securing too great power in. the
province, the shameful acts of the Boss
flovernment a_.d thp fact tliop any
party too long in power becomes a
pienace to the people's interest wore
probably the combined reasons Unit
forced the electors to a realization that
a change had to be made.
,|l Thb president et a Boston co-educa-
j'jonal institution is a good deal worried
over the fact that co-education dls-
pouragfss romance. It is a question, of
course, whether it is better for young
women to live in a fool's paradise for a
few weeks or months, nnd theu undergo
the post-nviptiul fac.i.g of the fact thnt
her adored is a man and not a demigod,
pr whether in the school nnd college as
in the family she shall acquire, the
knowledge of men and affairs which
dispel illusions regarding tlie masculine
sex. Sentimental attachments iu youth
and in mature years as well, are founded mainly ou idealization of character
and this, of course, ft", mingling of the
Sexes in the non-couventioual atmosphere of school and college destroys iu
great measure. The question resolves
jtpclf into shall girls and buys, youths
and maidens, realize lifo naturally as
fhey grow up, or shall they be hedged
about by illusion alio be left
fp, {heir individual discovery of (he
truth? The natural sequel of thu latter
Tjmin^g is the divorce oonrt."

Some time ngo there was a polfiMe
automobile procession In Ibe cily of'puf-
fnlo, N. Y. It was nqtablp for its size, and
also for the fact that it was entirely composed of automobile wagons (like that
Hi the cut above), built to distribute
the advertising literature of the World's
Dispensary Medical Association, pfpprlr
etors nml manufacturers of Dr, Pierce'a
nicelicitics. In nwny a town and village
Dr. Pierce's automobile has been tne
pioneer horseless vehicle. These wagons,
sent to every important section of the
country, are doing more thai) pierely
advertise Dr. Pierce's Remedies—they
are pioneers of progress, heralds of the
putomnhilc age.
And this is in keeping with the record
made by Dr. Pierce ana his famous pre.
para-ions, wliich have always kept In
the front on their merits. Dr. Pierce'a
Golden Medical Discovery is still the
leading medicine for disorders and diseases of the stomach nud digestive and
nutritive systems, for th,e purifying Of
the blood and healing of weak lungs.
Women place Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription in the front of all put-up
medicines specially designed for women1.
use. The wide benefits this medicine
has brought to women have been well
summed up in the words "_*_ makes weak
women strong and sick women well."
The reputation of Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets as a safo and effective laxative for family use is international.
Jt may be asserted without fear of contradiction that no other firm or company
engaged in the vending of put-up medicines can rank with the World's Dispensary Medical Association, either in the
opinion of the medical profession or of
the intelligent public. The Invalids!
Hotel nud Surgical Institute, which is
connected with the "World's Dispensary," is alone sufficient to prove this
supremacy. Here is a great modern
hospital, always filled with patients,
where every day successful operations
are performed on men anil women whosQ
diseases demand the aid of surgery. No
hospital in Buffalo IB better equipped,
with respect to its modern appliances, or
tbe surgical ability of its staff. Dr. R. V.
Pierce, the chief consulting physiciaii of
this great institution, has associated with
himself nearly a score of physicians,
each man being a picked man, chosen
for his ability in the treatment and cure
pf some special form of disease.
The "offer that Dr. Piercu makes to
men and women suffering with chronic
diseases of a free consultation by letter,
is really without a parallel. It places
without cost or charge the entire resources of a great medical institute at
the service of the sick. Such an offer is
not for one moment to be confounded
with those offers of " free medical advice"
which are made by people who are not
physicians, cannot and do not practice
medicine, and are only saved from prosecution by artfully wording their advertisements so that thoy give the impression that they are physicians without
making the claim to be licensed.
Those who write to Dr. Pierce, chief
consulting physician to the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buffalo,
N. Y., may do so with the assurance that
they will receive not only the advice of
n competent physician, but the advice
uf a physiciaii whose wide experience
in the treatment aud cure of disease, and
whose sympathy with human suffering
leads him to take a deep, personal interest in all those who seek his help and
that of his associate staff of specialists.
