New York, Dec. 29.���A mystery
which promises to rival the famous
Barrett murder of a dozen years ago,
waa brought to the attention or the
polios today when a boy notified them
tbat he had watched a trunk which
two men bad unloaded from a push
cart and left In the gutter In Pitt
atreet on the eaat side.
When the trunk waa opened tbe
body of a man about 40 yeara old,
shabbily dressed, and emaciated, was
found In It. The body, which waa still
warn), was identified tonight by
Joeepn Malloy, a former room-mate
of John Krauienz, a Russian Pole,
formerly employed tn a ooal mine at
Charleston,  ... V.
According to the coroner, death
had been cauaed by strangulation,
though in forcing the body Into the
trunk the neck of the man had been
broken. Ropes held the head and
neck to the knee* sud teet of the
body. A large bandanna handkerchief
had been used aa a gag and a
woman's petticoat, wrapped about the
head, had been used aa sn additional
prevention of return to life.
About 10 o'clock thia morning,
Joseph   Cooper,   aa employee   of   a
puah cart atable" on Sheriff atreet,
nearby, rented a cart to two mea answering the description given by tbe
boy. They had asked him to take,
care ot the trunk after It ba>
dumped Into the gutter.       IB
At a lata boor tke police had not
learned where the trunk waa obtained
or picked up by tha push cart, nor
had either ot the mea who carted It
away beon apprehended.
Announcement  May  Alter  Aspect  of
the Quest for Cure���New Kind
of Toxin.
Paris, Dec. 29.���Announcement has
been made by Dr. Pierre Roux, director of tbe Pasteur institute, to the
academy of sciences of a discovery
by Dr. F. Marino, a bacteriologist at
tbe Institute, which it is thought may
entirely alter the aspect of the quest
for a cure for tuberculosis.
Marino observed that all other
germ* which multiply rapidly together
die if cultivated with tubercle bacilli
after the lapse of 10 or 15 daya Hls
experiments have established the fact
that cultures of tubercle bacilli within that period give off a poison fatal
to any torm of microbe. A few drop*
of a 40 or 50 days tubercle culture
sdded to sny culture medium prevent*
the propagation of other germs.

"The cost of the plant has run somewhat over the first estimate but what

Nov. 30, ���300 yards of filling bad

which $43.8116.07 was for travelling

worthy folk nf t'jiisa, the nearest

With that charact ristic Seamen
which has become proverbial the police at once altered tho prisoner's
charge and accused him of complicity,!
although they were unable to suggest
a reason why he should betray himself publicly In this fashion and gratuitously assume the odium of being
concerned in a plot against the
prince, who was universally popular. This error was soon corrected,
however, for a number ot prominent
citizens told the prefect of Meta's uncanny gift

Many a September purchase is really decided in July.
Many a woman is gathering information to-day ihat will influence her selection of a stove two months hence.
Many a man is thinking right now about the store he will patronize for his Fall suit and overcoat.
Many an October piano purchase is really ttetermitud on the
porch of a summer hotel or home in August.
Bow unwise, then, to put off the Advertising of these and
similar articles until the actual time of their use arrives.
One advertisement seldom makes a sale. It is
the repeated impressions created by Advertising
that develops purchases by a discriminating public���aqd these' impressions are seldom built up
in a day, a week or a month.
Yet some manufacturers and merchants still'
procrastinate until the first nip of frost is felt���'
and then besiege tbe public with belated announcements of Fall clothes, kitchen ranges,
home furnishings, winter underwear, and other
articles usually purchased in the Fall.
Putxfated in the Fall���oh. ves-but decided upon
in the Summer. ' Dferided in favor of the goods
that are continuously advertised.
It's the Advertising read ip July that bean fruit in September
and October. For to-day's impressions inevitably lead to
to-morrow's sales.

Bunty Pulls    the    Strings" Will Be
Seen  Here���Crowded   House
"Bunty Pulls the Strings." the now
famous comedy, comes to the West
minster opera house this evening and
theatregoers at large appreciate the
fact that they have sn opportunity to
Bee the much talked of comedy, and
[or themselves Judge of Its merits.
'Bunty" Is still running at tbe May-
market theatre in London to enormous
business, and also played tn New
Vork over fifteen months. "Bunty" Is
a Scotch lassie whose title of manageress should be written out In
capital letters. Sbe manages everybody and everything In the play without their knowing lt, and to their utmost advantage.
'Bunty" saves her father from an
cver-crlnolined, acid-faced spinster
who Intends to "hook" him, and marries him to sn old love of his early
youth. She also marries herself to,
the young man of her choice: saves
her brother Rob from a hard lot, and
arranges his love affairs. In fact.
"Bunty Pulls the Strings" so gently
and satisfactorily thst all the characters In the play are overwhelmed
with delight at ber successful efforts.
"Bunty" Is ons of the real live
products ot the stage. That ts. It ls
not "stagey." Just a visit to "tlleland
folks." They may be strange to you.
but you will like them, and as for
"Bunty," she is the cleverest politician
that ever visited New Westminster.
She baa her "hat ln the ring" trom
the beginning to tbe end ot the play,
and sbe makes good every minute.
"Bunty" Is so thoroughly Scotch, so
tearfully un-American, tbat she reminds one ot eating chocolate creams.
It Is "all over" before you get the
taste, and keeps you longing for

Humor and

TtfONEY may be the root of nil evil,
but it is also the blossoming of
mucb joy.
Happy Is the man who can make
capital out of bis own awkwardness.
It Is easier to be critical than It is to
bc prepared to meet the critical.
It ls something of a surprise to tbe
man wbo thinks lie is the whole thing
to see the whole thing move smoothly
along without a hitch wben be takes It
Into bis little head to drop out.
