A subscription list has been
circulated during the past week

Inspector Gordon paid an official visit to the public school
last week. His remarks relative
thereto were very complimentary
to the three teachers, being to
the effect that the Penticton
public school showed the best
coaching of any sciiool in the
entire Okanagan.
In our report last week of the
play given by the local Dramatic
Ulub, we unintentionally omitted
the names of two persons who
performed a very important of-

entertained the audience so acceptably between the acts.
We wish to correct a slight error made in the article entitled,
"Indians in Public Schools,"
which appeared in last week's
issue. We have been informed
that the Dominion Government,
through the Indian Department,
has made a grant of twelve dollars per annum for each Indian
child attending the public school,
and that the first payment will
be due on April 1.

Kelowna on Good Friday and
that with Summerland on Easter
Monday. The local team request
everybody to turn out at four
o'clock on Saturday afternoons
for practice. The boys want to
give a good account of themselves during the coming season
and should receive every encouragement.
Baptists Welcome Pastor.
A social welcome was extended to Rev. A. S. Baker and family on Wednesday evening in
Steward's Hall. There was a
good attendance from most of
the other denominations, evincing the friendly spirit between
the various churches that has always prevailed in Penticton. The
program, comprising a number
of speeches and songs, was listened to with marked attention.
Besides the chairman, Rev. A. T.
Robinson, those who occupied
seats on the platform were Rev.
Mr. Baker, Rev. Messrs. Esta-
brook, Wallace and Hood from
Summerland, Rev. Principal
Sawyer, of Okanagan College,
Rev. R. W. Hibbert, of Penticton, and Messrs.. Wilson, Kinney
and Kent, also of Penticton.
The formal proceedings opened
by singing "Onward Christian
Soldiers," followed with prayer
by Rev. J. J. Wallace. Mr. I.
Kent gave the address of welcome from the local congregation
to the new pastor. He spoke in
a very earnest and impressive
manner, emphasizing his welcome by a hearty handshake at
the conclusion of his remarks.
Next followed a solo by Mrs.
Mitchell, after which Rev. Mr.
Robinson gave the chairman's
address, which was reminiscent
in character, descriptive of experiences in his earlier missionary career. Rev. Mr. Estabrook
was the next speaker. He had
been a classmate of Mr. Baker
at Acadia College, N. S., and he
could welcome the pastor as a
personal friend to this new field
in the great west. Mr. Heales
then sang a solo and was followed by Rev. Jas. Hood who
irave a short and humorous
speech, concluding in a more
serious vein by a welcome to Mr.
Baker as a co-worker in the cause
of Christ. Rev. R. W. Hibbert
gave a forceful, earnest and eloquent speech, after which Mr.
and Mrs. Stevens sang a duet.
Principal Sawyer was then called
upon. He had taught both Mr.
Baker and Mr. Estabrook at Acadia College, but had never
thought at that time that he
would again meet them in this
country under such circumstances. Mrs. Stewart sang a
solo, and Rev. Mr. Baker gave
the final speech, expressing appreciation for the kind words
that had been spoken, and emphasizing the great purpose for
which he had come west. Excellent and bountiful refreshments were served, after which
the singing of "Blest be the tie
that binds," and prayer by Rev.
Mr. Baker, brought the gathering to a close.
Literary  Closing.
After a series of most successful sessions, extending over a
period of more than five months,
the Penticton Literary and Debating Society was brought to a
close for the season on Thursday night. After the singing of
"The Maple Leaf," the President, J. F. Tupper, called upon
the Secretary, A. S. Miller, for
his report Mr. Miller read a
very clear and concise paper upon the proceedings of the society
for the past winter, also outlining its history for the two former years of its existence. The
Treasurer's report was next
called for, and this was also read
by Mr. Miller. It showed a balance to the credit of the society
of $21.95 over and above all disbursements.
The entertainment opened with
a musical duet by Messrs. Gahan
and Plummer. W. J. Clement
followed with a paper on the unorganized districts of Canada���
Ungava, Keewatin, Mackenzie
and Franklin. Miss Thompson
and Mr. Miller sang a duct, Miss
Rowe playing the accompaniment, Mr. Tupper following with
a paper on British Columbia.
Miss Bessie Thompson sang a
solo and Mr. Wilton recited a
selection from Drummond, and
then Mr, Barker read a paper on
Newfoundland. A resume of the
work of the Society was read by
R. W. Hibbert; Mr. Miller, accompanied by Miss Lancaster,
sang a solo, and the President
gave a short address as a wind-
up. The National Anthem
brought the session to a close.
The Literary will re-open about
Citizens Dance.
The Citizens Dance last evening came fully up to the expectations of the enterprising committee who were responsible for
its success. Dancing began
shortly after eight o'clock and
the merry whirl continued until a little after twelve, when
the company broke up. The
Penticton Orchestra provided
music in their usual efficient
There were about thirty - five
couples on the floor, among them
being a number from the adjoining towns.
The next dance will be held on
Easter Monday, Apr. 20, and it
is the object of the committee to
make it the dance of the season.
The citizens dances during the
winter have invariably begun
and ended at an early hour, thus
overcoming an objectionable feature.
Notice Smith's change of  ad.
Poisoned by Wood Alcohol.
A yery sad death occurred at
Summerland on the evening of
Friday, the 20th inst. Frank De
Beers, who had been in Penticton
for several days and had been
drinking considerably, returned
to his home on Thursday morning. Not being able to obtain
liquor in Summerland, ho purchased a small bottle of alcohol
from the local druggist. The
druggist, thinking that he wished
the alcohol to mix paint with,
gave him methylated spirits.
Beers drank the liquor mixed
with water with the result that
he died on the evening of the
following day. Dr. Smith made
an autopsy of the case, and a
coroner's inquest was held on
Monday. It was brought out in
the evidence that, as deceased
had eaten scarcely anything for
several days, the liquor upon an
empty stomach had produced
fatal results. Deceased was
about forty-five years of age.
(We do not hold ourselves responsible for the
opinions of correspondents.)
To the Editor of The Penticton Press:
Dear Sir, ���I have no sympathy whatever with bars, and the
indiscriminate issuing of licenses
to the average hotel-keeper, but
after hearing the evidence and
the finding of the coroner's jury
re the death of Frank De Beers
I have become an ardent advocate of the licensing of hotels,
under certain laws, conditions
and restrictions. The much and
loudly boasted social conditions
of Summerland, the so styled
garden of the Empire, the ideal
place in which to found a home
and rear a family, has of late received more than one rude shock,
and its up to our social and moral
reformers to rest awhile from
prayers and supplications, and to
turn on the lights of public opinion and get down to work. It is
useless to attempt to knock the
Devil in the head by using a
Bologna sausage as a weapon ;
and "to tune the sermon to ears
polite, and snuggly keep damnation out of sight" has at best too
much of the hot air business
about it.
The sudden death of Frank De
Beers and the many sad and unfortunate circumstances attending this man's death should serve
as a grim warning to us all, and
every precaution possible should
be taken to safeguard and protect the unfortunate ones left.
Those who are in authority over
us in temporal and spiritual
things should make an immediate
and a thorough study and investigation of the whole question as
to the criminal and indiscriminate sale of alcoholic poisons under
the names of Wood Alcohol and
Methylated Spirits. The gross
ignorance of many professional
men and the evident diversity of
their opinions renders the way
of the would-be reformer somewhat difficult to travel, and the
time has arrived in Summerland
where it is the bounden duty of
all who love the Brotherhood of
Man to step boldly to the front
and without fear, favor or affection for or with the feelings of
interested ones, fearlessly overcome the lions in the way. Had
the jury asserted their unquestioned privilege, and, in this unfortunate case, their bounden
dutv to add a rider or recommendation to the Attorney General
that he would make enquiry into
the question of the sale of those
alcoholic poisons, I am certain
their recommendation would
have been carefully attended to
and the jury would have placed
chemselves on record and have
treed themselves of the charge
chat they were too sensitive as
to the feelings of those careless
dispensers and sellers of alcoholic
Taking all the circumstances
into consideration, and the evidence of Dr. Smith, who conducted the post-mortem, into account, I cannot but consider the
dnding of the jury a bald and
ansatisfactory termination to a
most unfortunate and tragic

manifest that we begin to feel
that a new season is here. The
little buttercups and other wild
flowers are beginning to peep up
through the last year's leaves,
and the birds seem to vie with

has four distinct ?casons, no one

best place in the world to live in.

time was spent, but anyone
knowing Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland would know that there was
a good time at their place.

legend very seriously. His ingenious
mind instantly suggested a way by
which thp baror.ot could he done (o
death, and yet It would be hardly possible to bring hom* the guilt to the
real murderer.
"Having conceived the Idea he proceeded to carry It out  with considerable   finesse.   An   ordinary   schemer
would have been content to work with
a savage hound. The use of artificial
means to make the creature diabolical
was a  ''ash of guntus upon bis  part.
The dog he bought In    London   from
?.oss and Vangles, the dealers In Fill-
han   Read.  It was the strongest  and
mo't   ravage in  their  possession.  He
�� f*  down by the North Devon
'.'?"->ri a great distance over
���������'��� c   '- get it home without
""���Vs. He had already
on his insect hunts learned to per.e-
uttte  Uie  k.l'iiUpe.i  uJltt), and  so  uad
found a   safe   hiding-place   for   the
creature.   Here  he  kennelled  it    and
waited his chance.
"But it was soiup time coming. The
old gentleman could not he decoyed
outside of his grounds at night. Several times Stapieton lurked about with
his hound, but without avail. It was
during these fruitless quests that he,
or rather his ally, was seen by peasants, and that the legend of the demon dog received a new confirmation.
He had hoped that his wife might lure
Sir Charles to his ruin, hut here she
proved unexpectedly Independent. She
would not endeavor to entangle the
old gentleman In a sentimental attachment which might deliver him over to
his enemy. Threats and even, 1 am
sorry to say, blows refused to move
her. She would have nothing to do
with It, and for a time Stapieton was
at a deadlock.
"He found a way out of his difficulties through the chance that Sir
Charles, who hs'l conceived a friendship for him, made him the minister
of his charity in the ca?c of this unfortunate woman, Mrs. Laura Lyons.
By reprasentins; himself as a single
man he acquired complete influence
over her, and he gave her to understand that in the event of her obtaining a divorce ftnn her husband he
would marry her His plans were suddenly brought to a head by his knowledge that Sir C! irles was about to
leave the Hall o 1 the advice of Dr.
Mortimer, with whose opinion he himself pretended to coincide. His must
act at once, or hh victim might get beyond his power. JTe therefore put pressure upon Mrs. ! yens to write this letter, imploring th" old man to give her
an interview on the evening before his
departure for I c->dnn. He then, by a
specious argument, prevented her from
golr'g. and so 1 ��� ������; the chance for
which .he had waited.
"Driving bs' i tl.e evening from
Coombe Trace; ' w:if In ti*ne to get
his hound, to *:n It \v!*h his Infernal
paint, and to bt'���������*. the beast round to
the gate nt v1 ' ' he had reason to
expect thwt h*> v i!d -nd the old gentleman waiting " e do~ Incited by Its
master, sprang in er the wicket-gate
and pursued the unfortunate baronet,
who fled scream! % down the Yew Al-
'ey. In that gloo"iv tunnel It must indeed have been a Ireadful sight to see
"hat huge blar' venture, with Its
flaming jaws a-V. 'jla^lntr eves, bounding afte- Its victim. He fell dead at the
end of the a!!"" from heart disease
and terror. The hound had kept upon
the grassy brrtle" while the baronet
had run down tha path, so that no
track but the man's was vIsiMe. On
seeing him lying sHl! the nreiture had
probably approached to sniff at him,
but. finding him d^ad had turned away
again. It was then that It left the print,
which was actually observed by Dr.
Mortimer. The hound was called off
and hurried away to Its lair in the
Crimpen Mire, and a mystery was left
which puzzled the authorities, alarmed
the countryside, and finally brought
the case within the scope of our observation.
"So much for the death of Sir
Charles Baskerville. You perceive the
devilish cunning of it, for really it
would be almost Impossible to make a
case against the real murderer. His
only accomplice was one who could
never give him away, and the grotesque, Inconceivable nature of the device only served to make It more effective. Both of the women concerned in
the case, Mrs. S'apleton and Mrs.
l.aura Lyons, wete left with a strong
suspicion against Stapieton. Mrs.
Stapieton knew that he had designs
upon the old man, and also of Ihe existence of the hound. Mrs. Lyons knew
neither of these things, but had been
Impressed by the death occurring at
the time of en uncancelled appointment which was only known to hltr>
However, both of them were under his
influence, and he had nothing to fesi
from them. The first half of hla task
was successfully accomplished, but.
tho more difficult still remained.
"It Is possible t' at Stapieton did not
know of the e^ls ence of nn heir In
Canada. In any (asp he. would ven
soon learn If from his friend Dr. Mor
timer, and be WPS told by Ihe latter
ail details about the arrival of Henr>
Baskerville, Stapleton's first. Idea w,if
that this young s ranger from fanad:'
might possibly be done to death lu
London Without coming down to Dev
onshlre at all. He distrusted his wife
over since she had refused to help hltu
In laying a trap for the old man, and
he dared not leave her long out of his
sight for fear he should lose his
Influence over her, It was for
this reason that he took hnr to
London with him. They lodged, I
find, at. the Mexborough Private Ho-
tel, In Craven Street, which was actually one of those called upon by my
agent in search of evidence. Here he
kept his wife Imprisoned In her room
while he, disguised In a beard, follow
ed Dr. Mortimer to Baker Street and
afterwards to the station and to tne
Northumberland Hotel. His wife had
some inkling of his plans; but sho had
sncfl a teat 01 i er untinanu����� lea'
founded upon brutal ill-treatment--
thai she dare not write to warn Tie
man who n she View Io he In danger.
If tin leittr should fall Into Stapleton's
hands her own life would nof he safe
Eventually, as we know, she adopted
the expedient of cutting out tho words
which would form the message, and
addressing the letter In a disguised
hand. It reached the baronet, and gave
him the first warning of his danger.
"It was very essential for Stapieton
to get some article of Sir Henry's attire so that, In ease he was driven to
use the dog, he might always have the
means of setting him upon his track.
With characteristic promptness ami audacity he set about this at once, and
we cannot doubt that the boots or
chambermaid of the hotel was well
bribed to help him In his design. B;
chance, however, the first boot which
was procured for him was a new one
and. therefore, useless for his purpose.
He then had It returned and obtained
another���a most instructive Incident,
since it proved conclusively to my
mind that we were dealing with a real
hound, as no other supposition could
explain this anxle'v to obtain an oh;
boot and this Indifference to a new
one The more outre at:d grotesque an
incident 13 the more carefully If deserves to be examined, and the ver:'
point which appears to complicate f
case Is, when duly cons'dered an<
scientifcally handled, the one which is
most likely to elucidate it.
"Then we had the visit from our
friends next morning, shadowed al
ways by.Stapleton in the cab. From hit
knowledge of our rooms and of my ap
pearance, as well as from his genera)
conduct, 1 am Inclined to think that
Stapleton's career of crime has been
by no means limited to this single Baskerville affair. It is suggestive that
during the last three years there have
been four considerable burglarlea In
the West Country, for none of which
was any criminal ever arrested. The
'ast of these, at Folkestone Court, in
>.iay, was remarkable for the coldblooded pistoling of the page, who surprised the masked and solitary burglar. I cannot doubt that Stapieton recruited his waning resources in this
fashion, and that for years he has been
a desperate and dangerous man.
"We had an example of his readiness of resource that morning when he
got away from us so successfully, and
also of his audacity In sending back
my own name to me through the cabman. From that moment he understood
that I had taken over the case In London, and tbat therefore there was no
chance for him there. He returned to
Dartmoor ind awaited the arrival of
the baronet."
"One moment!" said I. "You have,
no doubt, described the sequence of
even's correctly, but there Is one point
which you have left unexplained. What
became of the hound when its master
was In London?"
"I have given some attention to this
matter and It is undoubtedly of Importance. There can be no question that
Stapieton had a confidant, though It
is unlikely that he ever placed himself
in his power by sharing all his plans
with him. There was an old manservant at Merripit House, whose name
was Anthony. His connection with the
Stapletons can be traced for several
years, as far back as the school-mastering days, so that he must have been
aware that his master and mistress
were really husband and wife. This
man has disappeared and has escaped
from the country. It is suggestive tbat
Anthony is not a common name In
England, while Artonio Is so In all
Spanish or Spanish-American countries. The man, like Mrs. Stapieton
herself, spoke good English, but with a
curious lisping accent. I have myself
seen this old man cross the Grlmpen
Mire by the path which Stspleton had
marked out. It Is very probable, therefore, that In the absence of his master
it wns he who cared for the hound,
though he may never have known the
purpose for which the beast, was used.
"The Stapletons then went down to
Devonshire, whither they were soon
followed by Sir Henry and you. One
word now as to how I stood myself at
���hat time. It may possibly recur to
vour memory tbat when I examined
he paper upon which the printed
words were fastened I made a. close inspection for the water-mark. In doing
io I held It within a few Inches of my
jyes, and was conscious of a faint
smell of the scent known as white Jes-
iamine. There are Beventy-flve per-
'un.es, which It is very necessary that
criminal expert should be able to
distinguish from each other, and cases
'-.ave more than once within my own
���xperienre depended upon their
prompt recognition. The scent suggest'
jd the presence of a lady, and already
my thought began to turn towards the
���tapletons. Thus I had made certain of
he hound, and had guessed at. the
���rlmlnal before ever we went, to the
West Country*
"It was my game to watch Staple-
"on. It was evident, however, that I
^ould not do this If I were with you
iiiue he would be keenly on his guard,
deceived everybody, therefore, your
���elf Included, and I name down secret
" when I wns supposed Io be In Lon-
on. My hardships were not so great
I? you Imagined, though such trifling
ietalis must never Interfere with the
i.vesttgation of a case. I stayed for
hr. most part at Coorahe Traeey, and
���nly used the hut upon the moor when
t was necessary to he near the scene
-f action. Cartwrlght had come down
vith me. and in his disguise as a
lountry boy he was of great, assistance
o me. I was dependent upon him for
ood and clean linen. When I was
votching Stapieton, Cartwrlght was
'requently watching you, so that I was
hie to keep my hand upon all the
"I have already told you that your
nrorts reached me rapidly, being for-
.aided instantly from Baker Street to
MdiU iraeey. : (n-,i Mere oi sieai
;ervice to me. and especially that one
incidentally truthful piece of bio
apl'v of Stapleton's. 1 was able to
establish the identity of the man anu
the woman, and knew at last exactly
how I stood. The ease had been considerably complicated through the luci
lent of the escaped convict and the re
iations between him and the Barry
mores. This also yon cleared up in a
very effective way. though I had al
ready come to tho sam" conclusion?
from my own observations.
"By the time that you discovered me
upon the moor I had a complete knowledge of the whole business, but I had
.ot a case which could go to a jury
^ven Stapleton's attempt upon Sir
Henry that nighf which ended in the
death of the unfortunate convict did
not help ns much in proving murder
against our man. There seemed to br
uo alternative but to catth him ret!
handed, and to do so we had to use Sir
Henry, alone and apparently uiipro
���ected, as a bait We did so, and at the
cost of a severe shock to our client we
succeeded in completing our ease and
driving Stapieton to his destruction.
That Sir Henry should have been ex
posed to this is. I must confess, a re
proach to my management nf the case.
' ut we had nn means of foreseeing the
.errible and paralyzing spectacle
which 'he beast presented, nor could
we predict the fog which enabled him
to hurst upon ns at such short notice.
We succeeded in our object at a cost
which both the specialist and Dr. Mor
timer assure me will he a temporary
one. A long journey may enable ou
friend to recover not only from hir
shattered nerves, hut also from his
wounded feelings. His love for the lady
was deep and sincere, and to hi:n the
saddest part of all this black business
was that he should have been deceived
by her.
"!t only remains to Indicate the part
which she had played throughout
There can be no doubt that Staple'or
exercised an Influence over her which
nay have been love or may hav-> beer
fear, or very possibly both, since there by no means Incompatible e.*nc
tlons. It was, at least, absolutely effec
f!ve~"Af hfsTommand she consented t
pass as his sister, though he found th
limit, of his power over her when !���
endeavored to make her the direct ar
cessory to murder. She was ready t
warn Sir Henry so far as she couh
without implicating her husband, an-.
again and again she tried to do so
Stapieton himself seems to have bee-
capable of jealousy, and when he saw
the baronet paying court to the lady
even though It wrs part of his owi
plan, still he could not help Interrupt
ing with a passionate outburst wntch
revealed the fiery soul which his self
contained manner so cleverly concealed. By encouraging the intimacy nt
made it certain that Sir Henry would
frequently come to Merripit House and
that, he would sooner or later get thr
opportunity which he desired. On the:
day of the crisis, however, h's wtft
turned suddenly pga'nst him, She had
learned something of the death of the
convict, and she knew that the hound
was being kept in the out-house oh
the evening that Sir Henry was com
ing to dinner. She taxed he- husband
with his Intended crime, and a furious
scene followed. i:i which he shower
her for the first t!mp that she had n
rival In bis love. Her fidelity turned in
in Instant, to bitter hatred and he saw
that she would betray him. He tied he-
up, therefore, thit she might have ni
chance of warning Sir Henry, and hi
hoped, no doubt, when the whole conn
tryside put down the -"-ronet's deat!
to the curse of his family, as they certainly would do, he could win his wlfi
back to accept an accomplished fac:
and to keep silent upon what she
knew. In this I fancy that In any casr
he made a miscalculation, nnd that
If we had not been there, his door
would none the less have been sealed
A woman of Spanish blood does no-
condone such an Injury so lightly. And
now, my dear Watson, without refer
ring to my notes, 1 cannot give you a
more detailed account of this curious
case. I do not know that anything es
sentlal has been left unexplained."
"He could not hope to frighten Si-
Henry to death as he had done the olr'
uncle with his bogie hound."
"The beast was savage and half
starved. If Its appearance did ne
frighten Its victim to death, at least !
would paralyze the resistance whicl
might be offered."
"No doubt. The-e only remains on'
difficulty. If Stapieton came i-to f'
succession, how could he explain th
fact that he, the heir, had been livin,
unannounced under another name s
close to the property? How could h
claim It without causing suspicion am
"It Is a formidable difficulty, and
fear that you ash too r uoh when y
expect, me to solve it. The past and th
present are within the field of my !
qulry, but what a man may do In t!
future Is a  hard question  to answc

A One Dollar Bill.
A farmer out in Kansas,
About five years ago,
Went into town one day to spend
Some of his hard earned "dough."
"And in a merry jest," and just
To show his printing skill,
He printed his initials on
A brand new dollar bill.
He spent that dollar that same day
Down at the village store.
He thought 'twas gone forever then,
And he'd see it no more.
But long before that year rolled by
One day he went to fill
A neighbor's order, and received
That same one dollar bill.
Once more he spent that dollar bill
In his own neighborhood,
Where it would do himself and friends
The most amount of good.
Four times in two years it came  back,
As some bad pennies will,
And each time he'd go out and spend
This marked one dollar bill.
Had he been wise that dollar might
Be in his town to-day.
But just about two years ago
He sent it far away.
The people who received it then
I know have got it still,
For 'twas to a mail order house
He sent his d o 11 a r bill.
No more will that marked dollar come
Into the farmer's hands,
And nevermore will it help pay
The taxes on his land.
He put it where it never can
Its work in life fulfill.
He brought about the living death
Of that one dollar  bill.
