Washington, April 17.-President
Talt madfl public today cablegrams received from the King and Queen of
England and tlie King of Belgium, convening their sympathies to tne American people in tbe sorrows which nave I
followed the Titanic disaster. The
president's responses to both messages were made public. I
The following was the cablegram
from King George, dated at Sandring-
ham:
���The Queen and I are anlxous to ao i
sure you and the American nation o:
the great sorrow wbich we experience
at tne teirlble Ioes of life that has oc-
tunc J among the American citizens
as well as among my own subjects by
thc foundering cf the Titanic. Our
two countries are so intimately allisd
by ties of friendship fen* brotherhood
that rny misfortunes which affect the
ono mrn-t necessarily affect the other
pany has taken the position that it
will be impossible for anyone to board
the ship prior to her reaching the
dock."
The Cunard officials said tonight
they expected that more than 1000
passes would be issued to relatives of
survivors.
The White Star officluls announced
that arrangements had been made be
tween their company, Commissioner
of Immigration Williams and Mayor
Gaynor for caring for the third class
survivors in the city's municipal lodging houses. Those in financial distress
or without aid from friends and relatives will be sheltered by the city.

tbe survivors to board the Bhip from

not be granted. In that event the full
story of the disaster, except such details as may be received by wireless,

City Engineer Blackman and Assist-1
aut Engineer Stewartson were called,
into consultation, and  the technicalities of tlie specimens of brick made
from sand were gone into. Those submitted had been made from sand obtained  in  Canada  and  sent over to
Germany  to   be  manufactured.   They
are of a character totally different to
any at present used in the West, at
least, and probably anywhere in Canada.   They can be obtained of any ds-
sired color by means of a special process known to the patenter alone. Thi.;
, color  scheme, it  i3 declared,  is not
affected  by    climatic influences, and
the bricks themselves are guaranteed
not to  absorb  more  than  three  per
, cent  of moisture,  even in  the most
humid climates.   They are made under a pressure of 240  tons lo each '
brick, equal to a :>,000 pound pressure
to the square inch.   Those submitted
were of German pattern whicli is larger than  that In  use in Canada, but
that is a detail, as the plant can be
arranged so as to meet local require-
ments.
''_" I    A further feature  which  should  be
'   .of Interest   to  the   building  trade,   Is
the fact that these bricks can be man-
i ufaetured,  prepared and  delivered fit
| for nee within 48 hours, at the rate of
24.000   to   48,000  per  day.    The  cost

company the same. This offer was
accepted, and the committee decided
to give a second prize of the value of
$10. Mr. C. H. Stuart Wade also announced that he would donate a prize
of the value of S10 for the best decor-���
ated building. All the town is requested to display flags and bunting, so
that altogether it will be a memorable
scene when the court of the May
Queen is inaugurated.
May Pole Dance.
Many were the committees which
repo.ted, all of C:em showing that
tv,<; v.O'.'.': was well in baud, and the
chairman paid a special compliment
to the    publicity   committee for   its
work, stating that lt was the best de-
pal ture which  up till now had been
made.    .Mr.  Harrl3    Turner,    of    this
body, reported that his efforts in getting  together  five  young  ladies   who

ol the many features which are to be
enacted.

Says Rev. Wilson at    Home    Mission

"The piesent position of the Mormon chuich in Canada constitutes a
danger which must not be overlook- i
ed oy the Christian churches of the
Dominion." Tnis was tbe statement
made by Rev. G. A. Wilson In an addreas gi.en under the auspices ot the

While the exact route of the proces- i
sion has not yet been finally decided |
upon, Fire Chief Watson said that it
is thought best that the procession
should form In front of tbe library,
and when marshalled ln order will proceed tlience by Eighth street Into Columbia street and so by the usual
route to the park.
Musical Arrangements.
Mr. C. D. Peele spoke for the committee ln charge of musical arrangements.   There wlll be pn instrument
band, a hayseed band, and two bugle
bands composed of Vancouver    Boy
Scouts. He also touched on the recent
ballot saying that lt was the largest
in   history,   every   little   girl   in   the
city polling her vote.
A special meeting   of tbe   councll      Scoutmaster   Day   said that   flfty

finished its session while be was ia.
Ottawa. The proposals of the mayor,
however, found favor In every quarter
and Mr. Lee has no doubt that everything Is progressing very favorably
ior the city and harbor of the Fraser
river.
Mayor Lee has spent the last week
in traveling south from Portland   to
California, where he joined his family.
He had a very enjoyable time on this
part of the trip, which was a rest after the strenuous   time   spent   back
east.   He stopped off a day   ln   Loa
Angeles and another in 'Frisco, and
then came straight through home.
!    There was only time for a brief Interview with the mayor last night just
after he had got off the train.    He
managed, however,   to   cover   many
points of importance.   The harbor im-
j provements, of course,    were   upper-
! most ln his mind.   "I have jood   as-
1 surances from the government department," he said, "that they will help
' our project and 1 have    every   con-
| fidence that something big   wlll   be
.done next session.   In the meanwhile
i there is still a lot of preliminary work
to carry out, such as additional sur-
! veys,  matters  pertaining  to  the  extension of water lots, etc.   These are,
however, now well under way."
The mayor then went on to speak
of his visit to Montreal. 'When there
he went all over the harbor with   the
harbor commissioners snd engineers,
showed them the Fraser river plans
and discussed things generally. "There
te no doubt," he Stated emphatically,
"that the Fraser compares favorably
with Montreal as a site for a harbor:.
Our plans, too, met with approval from
everybody, government officials    and.
engineers and harbor commissioners..
|    "Once  we prove to tbem that we
are entitled to the money, that we can
do the business to warrant the   expenditure, they are ready to do everything for us.    Everybody was astonished at the tremendous possibilities,
existing here.   They had no idea that
there  were  such  great  opportunities,
for   deveIo;.ment   anywhere   on   the
Pacific coaEt as they found   In   the-

The Titanic, like its sister ship, the |
Olympic, possessed the great lenjth
of 882 feet 6 Inches, and a beam of 02
feet 6 Inches. Over the boat deck, the
Titanic's beam spanned 94 feet even,
from rail to rail.
Four  great, iunnels  rose  81 Vi  feet
above  the  upper   mast  deck  with a i
total  distance  of  175  feet  from lhe
top of the funnels to the keel.
Fifteen watertight bulkheads divided the great vessel, making her builders believe her unsinkable even
thou;h half of her compartments
filled with water. Eleven steel decks
added to the Titanic's staunchness,
while an Idea of the vast promenading
space may be best had when it is
noted that the main promenading
deck alone had an unbroken sweep oi
190 yards on either side of the ship.
A Parisian cafe and palm room
were but features of this remarkable
vessel, which was built to enter regularly in the Plymouth-Cherbourg-
Southampton-New ^orK service with
the Olympic.
Besides the main dining salon,
which had a seating capacity for nearly 600 passengers, there was an a la
carte     restaurant,    French      service.
Old Sea Dog's Theory.
Chicago, April It.���Captain Charle:.
Campbeil, a veteran seaman aiiac.itu
to the government hydtogiaphie Office
here, said tonight that ���longituuinai
stress" on tne uig boat had proUaoij
caused the sudden sinking wnen tue
Titanic struck the icebeig.
"'there is no doubt in my mind
that longituuinai stress caused the
sudden plunge," tne captain said.
"When the impact occurred, one end
of the boat was turned upwura, naturally. The rivets of the bottom ol
the vessel then broke, and ih my opinion the entire bottom of the boat was
severed from the rest of the craft.
"It is a mistaken idea that slow
boats are less perilous than fast
steamers. Fast ships are much Uie
i safer. A slow boat striking the Iceberg as in the case of the Titanic
would have met Lie same fate and
there would have been no difference
in the results.
"The Titanic apparently struck the
iceberg a mile or more away from the
Ice that wa3 visible. In large Icebergs it is nearly always the case
that a large portion of the ice is covered with water. Some section is
visible, but a portion a mile or mere
in length may have been under water.
The steamer evi len tly struck the sub-
niprH portion, unmindful of any lm-
r ending danger."

Advice to  Bride-Elect.
Lor.! Harris has celebrated his
lixtv-firsi birth lay. He wag educated
st Eton ami Cluisi Church, at one
time m\ <1 as Under-Secretary for
War. and was Governor a*. Bombay
fir five years in tlie nineties. He has
also been assistant adjutact-gr nerai
qf Imperial Yeomanry both in England and South Africa, and he was
L< r.'-n-Wuitin;  to  Queen   Victoria.
Lord Harris is keen on cricket, and
on- of th* chief promoters of tlie
tifitionai game in the old country. In
1-74 he married the Hon. Lucy Jervis,
daughter of a former Lord St. Vin-
c.nt.
Lady Harris is a pretty, fair woman,
with much tnct and charm of manner,
and during her husband's "reign" as
governor of Bombay she made many
friends and not a single enemy. She
h Id* the Order of the Crown of Indi:'.
A funny story has been told as
regards the apt remark made by one
of Lord Harris's predecessor's. The
Lord Harris in question wns sent to
fetch Princess Caroline cf Brunswick
and to set ns her mentor on her voyage to England to become th.e wife of
the then Prince of Wales, afterwards

Famine and Death in China.
Shanghai, Apiil 17.���A whole region
in Nortn Anhwei, China, was flooded
t.nd   the   crops   destroyed.      Famine I
from  hoods has visited    tho dietnet
for four consecutive years.   The Cath- |
olic Father who lives here says the i

I reads everywhere starving people arj j
I met.    Recently on his  way Into the I
I country, v.lien the snow lay thick oa J
jthe ground, he came across a mother i
| and a son.    The mother lay dead by ]
j the loadsl.le.   The boy lay across the '
i road  not  yet quite  dead.      He lifted I
! him in his arms to place him on his ,
| pony,  but before he could do so  he j
gave a few short gasps    and died in
: liis arms.   He sadly added, "AnJ what I
could  P'tlo?      1 could    do    no more
than perform for him thc rights of the
dead  and    lay  him  beside hls    dead
mother."   What  more,  sure, enough?
In a few days he was out again in another direction and he saw two women and two children lying de^d by tbe
roadside.    There was no oiip to give
them burial nnd tho dogs were beginning  to  gna.v   tha  flesh    from  their
bodies.   -V\ hat i.m I do for these ' oo.-
people?"    He  claimed   "I   have" no
money."
Boys and girls an.l wives are being
sold for as little as two Mexican dollars ($1.00 gold) each, to keep the rest
of the family alive. Of the two or
more milliojt facln; starvation in the
famine area many and many thousands will die before help can reach
them. Many other thousands will die
of starvation because there ls no
money to give them relief.
In addition to famine this part of
the country has been ravaged by war.

Dickens and Miss Wsllsr.
Dickens himself was once embarrassed by one nf his names. This
wus when ho was presented to a Miss
Weller, whoso beauty and talent de
lighted him. He described to a friend
his mixed tellings at finding the name
he had made grotesque borne by sn
gracious a lady. He afterwards introduced a friend, and a marriage followed in time. On the morning aftei
that first meeting Dickens sent tn
this unforeseen kind of Weller some
verses in which he protested his regret that he could not hope to change
600 to 1000 pounds of cream dally, be
tides large shipments of milk. The
Winnipeg dairies are even nov/ employing buyers to travel the country
and purchase supplies for cash.
A similar condition exists about Edmonton, Calgary and Lethbri lee, as
well as other cities In the Province of
Alberta, and the milk problem will become a serious one ln time unless
more farmers go Into dairying.
Tbe attention of the farmers ot
Western Canada ls being called to the
positive necessity for mixed farming
by the International Dry Farming congress. At Lethbrldge, Oct. 21-26, one
of the features will be addresses and
discussions on mixed farming by some
of the ablest and most far-sighted railroad magnates and agricultural experts.
The grain farmer only gets a payday once a year���and Bome years the
paymaster doesn't come a roun.1 at all

revenue. Whenever there's a crop

POLICE  SALARIES.
Nothing has yet been done by tbe
Police Commissioners with regard to
increasing the payment of the city
force. The comruisioners, it appears,
know little of the conditions of pay
and equipment prevailing ln the force
and seem to think that, granted the
policemen themselves do not audibly
complain, that everything is well.
This Idea that no grievance should
be redressed until a howl is raised
is one of tho most disastrous that
could be entertained. Every good employer knows that it is far more dignified and satisfactory to pay a fair
wage to his employees without waiting for threats of resignation, tban to
grant Increases at the point of a gun,
ao to speak. The way to get good service is not to pay just as little as possible, but rather to pay ungrudgingly
a good fair wage.
In the case of the local police it
would be particularly undorsirable if
the men were forced to offer their resignations in order to receive the rate
of pay established on the coast. In
fact many good constables would
rather quietly resign the force than
take such a step. And these are the
very men that are the most valuable.
Once the facts are brought to their
notice���and they should not have
needed bringing���the commissioners
should look into the matter and taken
steps to remedy a state of things not
at. all creditable to the city.
The three chief grounds of complaint which we have stated before,
are as follows. While Westminster is
only paying salaries from $75 to $00
a month with yearly raises of $5 a
month, Burnaby is paying from $70 to
$100 with $10 raises and Vancouver
from $75 to $105. Second, the local
police are Suppbsed tn carry revolvers,
but to obtain these tliey hnve to rely

JUMPED  INTO  STARDOM.
Miss Lulu Glaser Tells How She Got
Her First Chance.
Miss Lulu Glaser jumped into stardom almost ovei night. From the position of understudy to that of star
uui ing her lirst engagement on tno
stage was her fortunate experience.
some spend years waiting for ad-
\ancement, but the attractive and vivacious star of "Miss Duaelsack" had
her chance almost thrust upon her
and in almost dramatio faslnpn she
graduated Into leading roles without
notice.
Said Miss Glaser: "My flrst engagement was with Francis Wilson.
Mr. Wilson was very kind to me and
gave me a chance to understudy Miss
Marie Janson, then his leading lady.
Mlss Jansen was at that time so distressingly healthy that 1 did not
dream of ever being called upon to
play her part, and I went on the even
tenor, or rather soprano, of my way,
practically dismissing the whole thing
from my mind, and was satisfied to do
my tra"la la with the other girls of
the chorus. It is the unexpected that
always happens, however, and that,
too, when one is least prepared. It
was in New York City at the Broad-
wav Theatre that it all happened.
New York of all places! If it had
only been Cohoes, SUeneateles, or
Schenectady.
"Francis Wilson was then playing
'The Lion Tamer.' On the evening
In nuestlon 1 arrived at the theatre
about 7:30 and was met at the .'oor
by the stage manager. 'Mlas Glaeer.'
sr.hl he, 'we have just received word
that Miss Jansen is too ill to play tonight, and you must go on in her
part.' I rebelled at once. '1 simply
cannot do it, said I. 'Go on without a
rehearsal? It Is Impossible.' 'But you
must' he snid. 'The house is sold
out. and Mr. Wilson insists that you
must play the part and he savs he
will help yon through.' I went to my
dressing room In a terrible state, I
can assure you.
"The dressers brought me Miss Jan-
sen's costumes and helped me to nut
them cn and then what do vou think
happened? Just before the time came
fnr me to cn on I wos taken with a
deathly nausea and before I knew it j
I had fainted deai nway. Hurry calls j
were sent for a doctor and he lust i
brought me around in time to carry |
me lo the place I was lo mike my
first entranrc and rush me on. For a j
moment the audience, the theatre, |

Some attempt has been made to
deny this last statement, but it is nevertheless true. In tho. last six or seven years only two consignments of
coats haev been ordered. The first
were good heavy coats, but six years
of usage In a police force which has
to carry drunks to the station from all
parts of the city without a patrol wagon, are hard on cloth coats and many
of those still tn existence could hardly be worn by a self-respecting policeman or tolerated hy a city that was
jiroud of its police force. The second
batch was of light raincoats bought in
Kngland. These may keep out the
rain ,but do not and are not meant
to keep out the cold. The result Is
that the men either liave to wear

FIXED FARMING  CERTAIN.
Lethbridge, April 17.���In every
country progress has been attained
only against opposition. Systems of
farming, as of everything else, are
improved onl.v r.s the force of circumstances demand and old prejudices
die out. Kvery where else there has
been the same cry that tlie newer, progressive, diversified methods, tliat
made for permanency in agriculture,
would "not pay." But the men who
raised that cry one by one had to
drop out of the race or change their
systems.
Mixed farming In  Western Ca-i da
will pay, and in many of our ohler districts it will EOon be the only kind of
farming  that  will  pay.      Weeds and
| soli drifting and mortgages and land
lmproverlshment by   and by   will put
[the man ..ho says that mixed farming
doesn't pay out of business, and the
mixed farmer will  then buy his land
and make money out of it���by "diversified farming."
By all means let us correct our economic wrongs; but don't let us say
thnt progressive farming methods are
a mistake.���Nor'-West Farmer, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
ment of both the ancient colonies of

[Wilfrid Grenfell of the Labrador Med-

"In traveling through Canada," s*Ud
Dr. Grenfell today, "I have heard expressed  on  every side the  wish that
i Newfoundland  would    come into the
1 Canadian confederation.     Speaking as
a Newfoundlander���for I look on myself as a Newfoundlander now���I cor-
seems to be of one mind ln favor of
confederation, it should be made the
business of some one to prepare statistical information such as would
show Newfoundland exactly what they
would gain from confederation as
against what if anything they would
lose. As far as the fishermen goes, I
believe that they would favor confederation. They would have nothintr
to lose by it. h-it on the eontrarv, I
think they would have a gco:l deal to
gain."

NEW   CITY   OF  ZION.
Chicago,      April      17.���Mrs.     Jane
Dowie.  widow of the  late John  Alexander Dowie. lirst  apostle of Zion, is
'attempting    a   reconstruction    of   the
Zionist  movement in Chicago.
Bellevinc herself divinely inspired
to carry out the work her husband begun, Mrs. Howie came to Chicago lasl
fall ancl gathered about her the few
remaining memhers of tha prophet's
, original flock. An exile from Zion
City and the tabernacles ber bus-
band rounded, she planned to rebuild
the Zion congregation with the aid of
[Gladstone Dowie, "unkissed" son or
the departed Elijah ll.
Tlie younger Dowie was In full sym
pathy with the plans of his moi lie:',
but apparently lacked the divine inspiration for the task she has under-
taken. He had already resigned from
the parent church at Zlon City following the assumption of absolute control of Wilbur Glenn Vollva, general
overseer and successor apparent,
Dowie withdrew from the present
movement several months ago when ll
became apparent that the threads of
Dowieism had become almost hopelessly scattered. He has entered the
Western Theological seminary to
study for the Episcopal ministry, and
will probably be ordained within the
coming year.
Mrs. Dowio has not allowed the defection of her son to dismay her, but
has regained spiritual communion
with nearly LOOO of tho original congregation. The reunion of the present flock, she declares, does not mean
B schism from the religious teachings
of tho parent  church.    Faith  healing,

It Has a Better Future
Than Any of Them
There is certainly a big future ahead for We tm nster. Everybody living
there now and having ambition enough to get ho!d of a little property is
going to profit by it.
Now is the Time to Buy
Property here is cheaper NOW than it ever will be again. And take it
from me, it is rising in value all the time. (This is no visionary statement.)
We all know that Westminster is the one sure place in the west that has got
to grow. You positively can't go wrong by investing here. The Wise Man
invested in Vancouver when it was new, look at him today. Westminster
is new.
I Can Recommend These Because I Know They Are Cheap
I am offering you on this page the cream of tity property. Read it over carefully, select just what suits you
and ACT IMMEDIATELY. They are likely to be sold if you put it off. Call at my office and I will take
you out in one of my autos and show you the property you desire.

be anxious to jump the Big Four aggregation and come out to the coast.
SAPPERTON  WILL  PLAY
CITY ON SATURDAY
The curtain will ring down on the
City Soccer league on Saturday afternoon, when the Sappertonians. the
champions of the league, will battle
with the City team. If talk is any
criterion, this is going to he some
game. The Sapperton team after
their great feat on Saturday when
they made n draw with the Hovers,
are mighty confident of having u
walkover. "Tlie Hovers we know,
liurnaby we know, but who are ye,"
np; ears to be the present attitude of
the Fraser river boys to the city
ii';r-'iiers. The latter are calling the
bluff, and will take the fleld on Saturday w-tth a do or die spirit to lower
the Hying colors of the present champions. They realize it is a hard proposition to check a winning streak
witli any team, but they say the unexpected Is likely to happen ln this
case, ancl when tlie final whittle blows
the better team will have won.

Athletics at the local Y. M. C. A.
will take a new turn this evening,
when a Harrier Club will be formed.
Those interested in the long distance
sport are requested to meet at the
building at 7:30 p. m. The success
that has attended the formation of
such a club in Vancouver has no doubt
been an incentive to tlie local officials

of a dual meet between the two cit
ies tills coming summer look exceedingly bright.
Foiovving the success of the recent

will be formed this evening, the meeting being held at 7:45 o'clock.
The last exhibition in gymnastics

"The Titanic had 20 boats which is

The question of tbe number of

discussed widely. It appears that the
Hoard of Trade regulations permit a
reduction by half In the number of
boats, rafts and buoyant apparatus
carried when the ship officially ls provided with airtight compartments, but
this concession doe3 not apply to life-
jackets and similar apparatus. According to eome experts it would be
Impossible to carry a sufficient number of boata to accommodate all on

can not be doubted, however, that the

when they left it for a more congenial
location. Now it was being eliminated
to make v-iy /or a stru^tinj more in
keeping wltb iis surroundings.
Fltz Hoy called a call und drove to
the home of h's ancestors. Worl; bad
been suspended on a eertaln pUTtlon of
tbt> building, and there the foreman
led liiiu. Demoting material from
above, the workman had opened a compartment about li by 3 feet, supposed
to have originally beeu one of those
large chimneys built in former times,
nml exposed �� human head, or, rather,
skull. Tliey bnd reported the tind to
their boss, who ordered thu work stopped aud telephoned for tbe o-.vuer.
Fitz Hoy wus greatly Interested. He
ordered the walls inclosiug tlie space
lowered wltb every care. It widened
at the shoulders of tbe figure, assuming the proportions of un old time lire-
place, the opening of which had been
inclosed b.v n sliding panel four feet
in height, the outer side of which bad
been painted to represent oak. The
panel bung on n steel crosspleee and
was moved by a steel spring. A brick
wnll bnd been built at the opening,
covering tbe panel.
Whut few hairs remained on the
skull were quite long, und around the
neck was u lace collar of the time of
Charles I. The costume was of that
period. In the fireplace were urms of
tbe same time, so tbnt there wus only
stand lie.- room for the llKlire. About
Its waist was buckled a rapier ou the
blade of whicli were stains indicating
that it had been last sheathed with
blood on It.
Tbe work of demolition proceeded
slowly, I'ltz Roy noting every particular. The least disturbance of the skeleton caused parts of tlie clothing to full
uway. The luce collar (-rumbled llrst.
then tlie doublet. The most surprising
feature In tbe case wus thut. while tlie
costume was thnt of a onvuller of the
seventeenth century, tlie pelvis indleiit-
t'l the wearer to liave been n woman
When a sullh lent opening Inul been
Iflilde to remove tbe figure without

casket anil had the remains removed
to tlie family vault. Tbere It was put
iu one of tlie meant niches and marked: "Carolina Eleanor Fltz Hoy. Disappeared 111���,    Hody found 10���."
The discovery of tbls skeleton forma
the complement of nn unfinished story,
Indeed n story the whole of which wn��
known only to Caroline Eleanor Fitz
Itoy herself. Leonard Fltz Roy wns
familiar with nil of It tltit was on record nnd. using sueh light ns wih>
thrown on It b.v tlle discovery of the
skeleton, completed a romance tbnt hud
heen Incomplete for between two nnd
three hundred years,
I Miring the war l>etween the king and
the parliament Fltz Roy bouse wns tlie
scene of exciting events. Rut a few
miles from London. Its occupants were
Interested and were cognizant of tlie
Opposition of tbe lawmakers to the roy-
nt authority and were greatly Incensed
at It.
This Cnrollne Elennor Fitz Roy Wns
nt thnt time n beautiful girl nbout twenty ,*e;'.rs old. noted equally for tier attractive personality and her loyalty to
tlie king Many nf the yotitur bloods
���if her time were In love wlth'Tier, und
voung Roundheads would doubtless
have heen equally liable had she been
accessible to tbem. There waa one
Roundhead, however, whom sbe bnd
long kuown. He was Rlchar* Poln-
dexter, tlie son of a gentleman wbo ou
account uf some Injustice be conceived
tbo king had done blm bad Joined tbe
purllumviitiiry side. Richard up to the
time lie und hls family had taken part
against the Ulna wus the favored one
of all Caroline's suitors. Women ure
apt to be more vloleut In tlieir advocacy of a cnuse than men. aud from
tbo Koaient she learned thut Richard
bud turned Rouudheud ber love for him
seemed to have turned to bate, .lust
before inarching from London with bis
command to meet tbe forces of Prince
Rupert he rode to Fitz Roy house to
bid her goodhy.
Tbere Is littlo or no record of tbe Interview tliat took place nt that time,
but other data indicate that ahe scoru-
ed tbe young man wbo had espoused
the cause she condemned. A fragment
ot a letter says: "Richard was here
today to see Caroline. Ue rode away
sorrowful, while Caroline enme upstairs
with her cheeks hot, her eyes flushing,
and shut herself lu ber room." Tbat
sbe did not see hlm ugnln till after
the execution of tbe king is mentioned
ln tbe family archives: ulso that she
spurned him as a regicide, accusing
hlm of being equally respousible with
the regicides for the king's death. This
time when Richard left ber he was
more angered than sorrowful and told
ber thut he would never see her again.
The loss of her cause, the execution
of the king-un event appalling to a
bendstroug girl who considered tbe
person of her sovereign sacred���the
fact of her lover having Joined those
she considered her enemies, seemed to
madden this loyal maiden. Doubtless
the chief cnuse of her wrath was the
loss of her lover. Tbere ls no evidence that she had ceased to love him
notwithstanding that sbe seemed to
hate blm. More likely, what appeared
to be bate enute from the very intensity of her love nnd the fact tbat lt
bad been turned to bitterness.
Ahout the time that Cromwell was
proclaimed lord protector of England
Richard Poindester'a regiment preparatory to heing disbanded was encamped on vacant ground u short distance
from Fltz Roy bouse. Oue afternoon
some officers riding Into camp met n
man rapidly approaching them. He did
not see them till lie was upon them,
then looked up at them wildly. They
rode on a few hundred yards, when
they struck n wood and one of them
noticed a body lying near their path.
Dismounting, they found one of tlieir
own regiment who had been pierced
by a rapier. Ile was unconscious, but
not dead.
Suspecting dint tho man they hod
met had caused the trouble, two of
the parti started in pursuit. Tbey
ssoii caught ��U,'ht of him and :;nw hi in
turn Into the grounds of Fitz Roy
house. Following him there, they
came upon his horse. Dismounting,
they entered the house and searched
every nool; and cranny. No one was
there except tw'o old women and the
servants, none of whom showed nny
excitement. Sure that the fugitive was
on the premises, they were reluctant to
give up the chase, bnt since it was
Impossible to find him they went back
and reported the fact to those who bad
remained with the wounded man.
He bad revived and asked eagerly If
they had found his enemy. Wben they
said that they had not u look of Intense relief passed oTer his face.
A conveyance was sent from the
enmp. lie was conveyed to bts tent and
placed oo his cot. where he remained
for some time recovering from his
wound. When be wns able to be about
again be left tbe parliamentary service and, going abroad, entered that ot
the king of France. He declined to tell
who bad stabbed him.
One afternoon Caroline Fltz Roy's
horse was noticed nibbling tbe grass
In the grouuds of Fltz Roy bouse.
Sbe bad not been ut bome for a dny or
tw:o, and It was supposed she had returned. But she did not appear. A
search was made for her in and about
the bouse, but sbe was not found.
Tbnt was more than 200 years ago,
and sbe Is still missing.
Tolndexter remained a number of
years lu France. His family In England besought blm to return, but be
would not.
Finally the story tbnt Caroline
Fltz Roy hnd long been missing
brought blm home. He seemed greatly
distressed at tbe mystery, but If lie
had anything to do wltb tbe girl's disappearance he never teld. In n letter
wrltteu when be was nn old mnn. In
which he referred to the matter, he us-
Burned tbnt she bnd gotie to a foreign
country, where sbe must have died.
One thing about the pnnel In the
demolished house that Leonard Fltz
Roy carefully Investigated wns whether there wns any way of opening It
from the Inside. Ha found that there
was not. Ha succeeded In supplying
sufficient purts of the story to lead him
to Infer that Caroline Fltz Roy. following some plan or moved b.v some
cause that did not appear, went dressed as a mnn to aeek her lover at or
nenr his camp. They met, and Rhe killed him. When pursued by his brother
officers she dismounted and entered
the house without being seen by any
one of the household and. knowing of
tlie secret space, went Into It to bide
The punel closed witb n spring, und
Rbe wns unable to open It.
Among subsequent alterations the
fireplace wns bricked up. Quite pos-
Rlbly at tbe time of ber Imprisonment

Seattle, April 17.���Bringing a passenger list of over 400, including a
large number of tourists who spent
the winter in Southern California, the
Pacific Coast Steamship Company's
liner President, Capt. H. C. Thomas,
arrived at 5:30 last evening.
Capt. Thomas, the big liner's veteran master, reports the most remarkable experience in his long seafaring
career while the President was between Montara and Pigeon point on
��� her southbound voyage.
"It was about 4: HO last Monday aft-
I ernoon and we werp steaming at full
I speed," said Capt. Thomas, "when a
big gray-back cow whale, which I believe was over  forty  feet in  length,
I darted in front of the President.   We
I caught her just behind the gill, plow-
j ing  two-third  through  her body  and
I pinning her to the ship.   She swished
I her  tail  with great    force,  poundin?
I her body against the bow of the vessel,  which  was  soon    dripping  with
I hired.    At first I did not slacken the
| speed of the President, and with the
I big gray-back pinned to the stem we
| steamed for over two miles.    An en-
I ormous amount of blood anl cil was
j spouting from  the  whale's head and
her body  soon  became white.    I did
(not  feel   th?t  there was any  danger
to  the  vessel,   but   decided   that  we
had better be clear of her. so I stor-
ped the President and backe.l at full
speed.    The force  of  the swell  soon
freed  the whale  and  she sank  from
view." '
Bull Whale Makes for Steamer.
Cart. Thomas said that when he
struck the whale a big bull whale
made for the vessel partly above
water, resembling a submarine at fu!)
speed. "He struck the vessel on the
starboard bow, and evidently stunned,
sank from view. I have sighted and
killed a great many whales while
mastfcr of vessels on the Coast, but It
was the flrst time I have been compelled to stop the engines and back
my ship to get clear of one."
Capt. Thomas said that he had not
spen many sharks oft Pigeon po'nt.
hut after he struck the whale the
n-ater was alive with sharks. The
President struck the whale in the aft-
e-noon. when her decks were throntr-
ed with passengers and they enjoyed
the incident.

There is nothing new about^he Idea of
using Sago for restoring the color of the
hair. Our grandmothers kept their hair
dark, glossy and abundant by the use of
a simple "Sage Tea." Whenever their
hair fell out or took on a dull, faded or
streaked appearance, they made a brew
of Sage leaves, and applied it to their
hair with wonderfully beneficial effect
Nowadays we don't have to resort to
the old-time tiresome method of gathering the herbs and making the tea. This
is done by skillful chemists better than
we coukl do it ourselves; and all we
have to do is to call for the ready-made
