wben Miss Maclane went Into Miss
Miller's room."
"I did not suppose that tbls deception would extend to Miss Machine
when I made my promise," said Kendall. "I understood tbat she bad seen
you; tbat abe knew wbo you were. And
yon are not disguised."
"I have shaved off my mustache,"
■aid tbe detective, "and I look like the
devil without lt But tbls wbole matter of disguise ls merely knowing what
somebody else will notice. When
you're going to be recognized, send another man. Miss Maclane bad too
much on bar mind at tbe Thirty-eighth
atreet bouse. Sbe couldn't bave told
afterward whether I was white or
black. And so, witb the mustache gone
and theso goggles for my eyes, It was a
aure thing."
"Why was It necessary?"
"I reported to headquarters that Miss
Maclane was coming down bere," replied Elmendorf, "and the old man
wanted to get a Une on it"
"On what?"
"Whether they'd seen each other before. The result was a little peculiar,
as you'll admit Your patient recognized Miss Maclane at a glance, but
Miss Maclane says sbe never saw Miss
Miller before. What do you make of
It? Of course Miss Maclane has told
ao many different stories"—
"It ls perfectly natural," said Kendall, checking Elmendorf by word and
gestuns. "Miss Maclane Is prominent ln society. Her picture has been
printed In tha newspapers a hundred
times. With a natural motive for Intereat In her, Miss Miller has undoubtedly familiarised herself with Miss
Maclano's appearance. Sbe may even
have aeen her entering a church on
the occasion of a society wedding-
or In some similar way."
"Thaf8 the easy answer," replied
Elmendorf, "and I guess it's right. One
thing Is certain—If Miss Maclane struck
that blow, Miss Miller didn't see her,
and tbe poor girl's story Is true."
"If Mlas Maclane struck tbe blow!"
repeated Kendall, dazed. "What
earthly reason have you"—
"Now, aee here," said Elmendorf,
"let's view this matter calmly. Nobody can be hurt by a straight, honest
view of the facts, except tbe one that
onght to be hurt, the cowardly, black
hearted murderer wbo did this tblng.
Talk about calmness!   Walt a minute."
He walked back and forth two or
three times between tbe table and the
corner of the room, Anally facing Kendall squarely and continuing:
"I don't usually care a— Excuse ms.
I don't usually swear, either, and 1
won't do It now. I was going to say
that these tblngs don't effect me, as a
rule; they're all In the way of business.
Bnt somehow this takes hold of me.
How could anybody barm that little

"Miss Miller exerts a strange Influence," Bald Kendall. "I suppose we're
at least as bard hearted as the police,
but I caught Dr. Carrlngton, the ambulance surgeon wbo went out on this
caae, walking np and down In bis room
and telling another of our young doctors what be wonld like to do to the
man who waa responsible for this. Tbe
room smelled of brimstone from the
language tbat he used. And between
ourselves, Mr. Elmendorf, tbe thing
filled me wltb horror such as I haven't
felt ln a good many years. It Is the
personality of the girl undoubtedly.
There/a nothing unusual about tbe
"Well, I would hardly say tbat" returned Elmendorf. "There are a few
tblngs that I wouldn't call exactly ordinary—Mlas Maclane's conduct for Instance"'
"She explained tbat perfectly to me,"
replied Kendall
"Yea," aaid Elmendorf. "I happened
to bear tbe explanation. And now let
me tell you something. It is a moral
certainty that Miss Maclane weut to
tbat bouse before she says she did;
tbat she was tbere very close to the
moment of tbe crime, not to put It uuy
"What do yon mean?" demanded
"You have beard of tbe mysterious
woman In the en si*?"
"Yes. She was seen by Dr. Blnlr
leaving the house. But there's always
something of that sort in every affair
of the kind.   It will be explained."
"I wish Miss Maclane would explain
It" said Elmendorf, "for she was the
woman. Dr. Blair knows It beyond a
shadow of doubt**
"If he knows It." returned Kendall,
"wby hasn't be said so'/"
"Would you? Put yourself In his
place. Would you throw that rope
around a woman's neck before getting
a little more light on tbe matter? As
a man of the world and a doctor who's
learned ln his business the value of
keeping his mouth shut, would you do
it? No. And Dr, Blair feels Just the
same way. lie wasn't born yesterday.
Wben the tiuio comes, he ean give his
Kendall laid his band upon his balr,
perhaps to satisfy himself thnt it was
not beginning to stand on end.
"Do you believe that he will testify
against her?" ho demanded.   "Elmen- |
dorf, this Is deadly serious." I
"Well, I should think It wns," said
the detective, "and the longer she keeps j
quiet about It the more serious It gets."
It was Kendall's turn to walk the
floor, and he did it.
"There are a thousand chances to
one." continued Elmendorf, "that If
the story she tells you is true she can't
prove It. Suppose she was In a store.
Who's going to remember her or tlie
time of day? Take her motive, take
her admissions to you if they were
made In court, combine them with
Blair's evidence, and wlint do you suppose tbe result would be?"
"You cannot have seen her with Miss
Miller." said Kendall, "and still suspect her of this crime."
Elniendorf hesitated, as If Ite conld
hardly bring himself to destroy the
last refuge.
"Thero's one way to look at that," he
said at lsst. "Miss Maclane goes to
tbat house wild with rage after her
ecene with Alden. She has the 'fixed
Idea' that's more In crime than even
you doctors think lt Is. She gets In
without seeing anybody because of the
defective catch of the lock. She walks
Into tbat room. Miss Miller Is on the
balcony. Right on the table, where tbe
devil must hnve put it, ls that knife,
open perhaps, for the envelope that
held that note was cut. Miss Maclane
takes that knife, and on the Instant
Miss Miller comes In through the window, the other girl shrinking back toward the closet. She Is behind Miss
Miller. She doesn't seo her. You know
bow It would be with the girl entering
from the balcony, tlie bright light behind her. My friend, It's till over In a
second, and Bremln Maclane doesn't
know what she's done until she comes
to tills hospital and sees In that bed a
creature as different from the woman
she supposed she hnd struck down as
God could make."
Kendall's forehead wns dripping wet.
"But the money?" ho gasped.
"Wbo knows any thing nbout tbe money?" demanded Elmeudorf. "It mny
bave lain out of sight until Neale and
bis men got there, and one of tlii'in may
have lifted it. This is not for publication. Dr. Kendall. It's between ourselves."
"It's a nightmare." snld Kendall. "I
don't believe a word of It." j
"If you don't like the way I've put It,
let me give you another view," replied
tbe detective.    "Miss Maclane goes to
the house — heaven knows why,  per- |
baps from curiosity.   She goes up the j

Moon Worship Atuonir; Many Peoples,
Figures of the moon as religious emblems can be traced to n very high antiquity. The ancient Bgypttana hud
two moon goils-Khons or Khonsu and
Tel or Thoth. The latter wore the
moon on hia head, either as a full
moon or us a crescent The dlvlue
honors paid to the cat on the banks of
the Nile were probably due to Its supposed connection with the moon, as
shown, by the changeable pupil of the
feline eyes. In Greece both Pho-bus
nnd Phoebe were moon gods, and by
lsls tbe Greeks understood the same
planet. The Kouians hud many gods.
With them Luna was the moon, the
daughter of Hyperion and sister of the
sun. According to Llvy, tho temple of
Luiia stood on the Avcrtlne.
Tbe ancient Goths, Germans and
Finns were ull moon worshipers, aud
in undent Ilriluln the moon occupied
a high position In tbe celestial hierarchy of the Druids, who were always
represented as bearing crescents ln
their hands. It Is possible, too, that
Aiulraste, the goddess to whom Boudi-
cea appealed with outstretched hands,
wus the moon.

nt that time he was merrily carried to
the oak screen and placed with his arm
upraised nnd secured and locked ln
that position by tbe Iron ring. His
sleeve, then wide open, offered a tempting receptacle :jr the wine which he
bad refused to drink, and the contents
of tho goblet, with as much more as
the roisterers thought fit, were poured

Spring is the season when your

spring ynu must have new blood,
just, as the trees must have new sap.
With new blood you will feel sprightly, happy and healthy. Many people

is u .serious mistake, as the tendency ni all purgatives is to further
weaken the system. The one and

Chaso's Kidney-Liver Pills Prompt to Relieve and of
Lasting   Biinofi*:.
It is not only the lungs that suffer
during the cs>ld, damp seasons. Tha
kidneys are almost equally susceptible to sudden Changes ol temperature, and many a serious case of
kidney disease lias its beginning with
a cold  which setth's on the kidneys.
l'eisons working out of doors are
most "likely to bu victims of such
troubles, and Buffer from backaches,
lumbago, rheumatism and crippled,
aching limbs, but anyone is liable to
sit in a draught or expose his back
to a current of cold.
(old Battling on the kidnoys causes
congestion, a clogging of these filtering organs and consequent derangement of the whole digestive and excretory systems. The liver fails to
work, tho bowels become constipated
and the  Stomach   upset.
Because of their direct and combined action on these organs. Dr.
Chase's Kidney l.iver Fills are of
mopt prompt and most, lasting benefit for such derangements. They are
positive in their effects and are back
ed by tho experience and integrity of
Dr. A. W. Chase, the famous Receipt Hook author.
Mr. Wm, Boyne, of 19 Mcdee St.,
Toronto, says : "I was atl'.ictcd so-
vs'iely with kidney disease, stone In
the bladder, incontinence, deposits ln
the urine, severe pains in the back,
and strains over the loins. I was
so bad that 1 had to get up two or
three times in the night and could
then ouly make water witb groat
pu in.
"Though long a sufferer and unable
to work, I was confined to my bed
for three weeks, and during that
lime thought I could not possibly
endure greater misery. It was then
ih.it I began to use Dr. Chase's Kid-
noy-LlVor Fills. It is with gratitude thnt I say that the.v have freed
im.. of all these symptoms and mads

FRIDAY, MAY lfct.1908.
It is not unlikely the Liberal government at Ottawa will appeal to the
country this fall. There are two reasons advanced for the proposition
first, the influence of Lnurier's leadership before he retires owing to ill
health; second, the flossy budget pre
s-nited by Fihanee Bffnfoter Fielding.
The new redistribution bill will be
put into effect, so giving the Kootenays an opportunity to get a member
of their own. lt will then be "Goodbye, Bill Galliher," for Kootenay will
not forget Fielding's treatment of the
lead industry.
By this time W. A. Galliher and
Hon. Mr. Fielding must have come to
the conclusion that an ominous storm
i.s raging in the west by reason of the
government's refusal to provide pro?
ts**ction for the silver-lead industry.
Resolutions iiud protests by the whole-
Kale havo been wired to Ottawa on the
subject, aud the conviction must bave
carried that a great injustice has been
done the country. Iron miners in the
enst have beeu bonused, protected and
encouraged in a liberal manner, and
the element of consistency is surely
missing when similar treatment is denied the lead miners in the west. Jn
1878 Canada realized the beneficial effects of a protective tariff for her industries, aud every government since
bas followed out the same general
scheme launched by Sir John A. Mac-
donald, both Tcay and Grit. Free
trade for Canada is a miserable bunt-
bug and it should not ix; permitted to
be advanced in order to bring disaster
to a large section of the Dominion.
The politician whfl presumes to ride
the free trade nag cuts a sorry spectacle. Canadians have been raised in
protection and they want to see it
continued, more particularly in British
Columbia. Relief to the lead industry
is not a party question. It is a common issue of the people and part of
the national development. In refusing
proper help the Liberal government
have, to say the least, been foolhardy.
