From Slippery Bridge
To Creek Below.
A sad fatality lias occurred at Three
Forks which bus left a most depressing effect upon the community. While
proceeding to work last Saturday morning mme men found tbe body of a man
iu the creek, which upon examination
proved to he Arthur Whilelcy, an old
resident of Three Forks, The deceased
man lift! tenanted a shack on the other
sitle of thecieek, and a nair'W footbridge spans the stream at the point
"Where the body was found. He was
last Been on Thursday night, when lie
as in town making a few purchases.
A sharp frost prevailed at the time, und
it is supposed he lost his foothold on
the narrow bridge and fell to the creek
below, striking his head on "Hie bed of
the crct-k and became unconscious.
Or, Hariin, district coroner, visited
tho scene, but it was not, thought neces-
"eary by him to hold au inquest.
Arthur Whilelcy (or Wheatloy) was
an Englishman, age about 47. He was
a retioed, courteous gentleman, a
schrilaily man, and an accomplished
musician. His services have been in
great demand for socials, balls, etc., in
the district. He was a capable performer on a variety of instrun cuts, but a-
a banjoist lie excelled, Of bis antecedents the deceased was extremely
relieent, and he always changed tlie
subject when enquirers were, perhaps,
too inqu sitive. Hi was most, popular,
but to none ot his many friends did he
reveal his early life. Letters few and
tar between, which after perusal he was
most careful to destroy, reached him
from England, but on searching his
cabin in clue cool 1 he obtained which
would enable the authorities to communicate with a relative. It is, however, known, that be was for many
years a trooper in the N.W.M.P.. and
that he rosi to the rank of sergeant-
major. lie was also for some time chief
constable Rt Kuslo' in the very etrly
tltu-s. It b also known he was for some
time in Ind a in tbe service of the Government, ,
Tho remains were interred at New
.JVn'.cr on Monday. Tlie service was
lOlidUcted and impressively tead by
Church Missioncr Baynes, in charge of
���St. (Stephen's Church. Mr. Baynes will
preach a funeral sermon on Sunday
evening at Three Forks at 7.110.

Little Chester McCready is but six
years of age, and we believe he is tlie
youngest miner in the world. While
most children of his tender ago are concerning themselves with candies, picture books and tin gee-gees, little
Chester is pounding steel on his claim
which he calls the Gold Hole, near hie
home at Whitewater. Tlie little fellow
has driven a tunnel for about 5 feet,
and he .has timbered, too, as he/progressed, Whether he will strike anything or not remains yet to be seen, but
if he continues a few feet further and
then upraises, he should stiike metal,
that is, tlie K. and S. Railway "metal."
It would gladden tbe heart of an old-
miner to watch the little fellow's
methods of mining. He is owner, sup-
eri n ten pent, miner and mucker, and
for the successful accomplishment of his
duties as the latter he has a soap box
mounted on wheels, which when he
has tilled with dirt, he pushes out and
dumps with a serious and critical manner. One day last week the wee miner
had his first taste of the perils which
his more experienced seniors often run
into. A loud report was heard in the
vicinity of the " mine," and rushing
thither some men discovered the bairn
lying on the pround partly covered
with earth. Taking him out to the
open it was found that his lace was
badly lacerated, and his right eye so
badly hurt that it is feared lie will lose
lhe sight of it. Game to the last, the
cherub was more concerned at tie
damage the explosion hail wranght lo
his "mine" than his own painful injuries, tor wliile genlle nrnu bore him
to his relatives, he remarked: " I dees I
bowed all my timbers out."
It transpired afterwards that the
prodigy.had "found a quantity of dynamite cartridges at the rear of an unoccupied store, and having secured
some matches he inserted a cap into a
small hole be had drilled in the face of
bis "tunnel," and then applied a light-
od match, with the above consequences.
It is to be hoped little Chesii-r will
suffer no permanent injury from his
early experiences in mining, and that
one day he will own a mine which will
find employment for 100 muckers, and
that the "GoldeuHole" will ship 20
cars oljhigh-grade a day.

The recent sharp spell of frost has
been responsible for inducing the Ice
Committee to gel a move on. We venture to assert that had tho rink been
flooded two weeks ago the ice would
have been about fit now. 'Twas ever
thus. Make a note of this, boys, and
act accordingly another year.
The crowning act of vandalism was
tlie recent bomb outrage at the Vatican.
One would have thought that this sacred
edifice with all its historic memories
and relics would have least been respected by these revolutionary anarchists.    Whither arc we drifting.     i
And now tlie Daily News is angry because the Conservative press refuses lo
pick that old Kaien Island chestnut out
of the fire and nerve it up again cooked.
Anna Gould has reconsidered her decision to provide for Count Boni; so
he won't get a cent. Someone will
pawn a coronet between now and Xmus.
The following is taken from the London Illustrated Mail of a recent issue,
and is an extract from a letter written
to the editor, of that journal by Mr. A.
J. Wilson, of Portage la Prairie. It
goes to show that the good people of
Portage are harboiing a lying, narrow-
minded idiot, in their midsts: "The
young Canadian," he says, "is not the
stalwart, free, and easy colonial that
you imagine in England. On the contrary, he.is, as a rule, an ignorant mean
fellow, and at the same time a great
dude. Ills greatest delight is to hire a
livery rig, and drive abqut a town to
show himielf off.THe is a great coward
in a fight, using his feet as well as his
hands, or hitting his man with anything he can get hold of."
Now, wouldn't that jar you ? Ugh!
We wonder if there are such commodities as tar and feathers left in Portage,
and what the people are going to do
about it ?
'���.," Sandon ? S-a-a-n-don ? ?   What do
you want to go to Ssndon fir?   There's
nothing doing up there." That's what
some Nelson knockers told Mr. George
Bailey, manager of tlie Canada Malting
Company. But he came, in spite of
the grave warnings and chin wag, and
what is more, he did some good business
and he'll call again.
The C.P.R. agent hero last ^Thursday
night was surprised to find on receiving his freight way-bill the following
gruesome notation: "Checks a corpse
at Nakusp in tran-fer." Knowing that
corpses are usually taken out of Sandon
and never brought in, the agent was
in a dilemma as to how to dispose of
it. Dan Hurley and his team were
commissioned to remove tlie remains
to the morgue, and together the two
with solemn triad, funereal expressions,
and downcast mien, approached the
' temporary abode of the dead. Dan bail
two hats in his hand while Moir broke
the seal and swung aside the door, but
in less than five seconds two hats were I
lying in the mud and two ligu'es
were flying lo tlie tall timber. What
had they s<?en ? What had caused them
to flee fiom the ppot with blanched
faces. In a few minutes a crowd had
gathered within a hundred yards of
the car, and the mystery was discussed
in awed whispers. .Something had to
be done and done quickly. Hurley's
team snorted ami trembled with fear
tiB they backed further, further away
from the car, and a stray dog passing
the open door suddenly acted as mad
dogs do and skiddoed to the creek. By
this time an old prospector, who had
faced death unflinchingly in a hundred
ways, came into the pictirc, and on
learning of tlie mystery, called ftr volunteers. Then up spake brave Macdonald, from P.E.I, came he. "Lo, I
will abide on thy right side, and face
the corpse with thee." Then spoke up
young Will Tattrie, a fish-eater, too, was
he, " Lo, I will abide oil thy left side
and cinch that corpse with thee.''
To the plaudits of the crowd, forth
strode tho danntl-KS three, and th��
nearer they cautiously approach! d the
greater the nervous expectancy of tl.e
assembled throng. Of a sud-lcn, by a
concerted move the car was reached,
and the onlookers wire preparing to
cheer, when to th ir hoirir the time
staggered and rteled backwards its if
struck by some unseen hand. "Back.

A new spirit seems to have taken
possession of the operators in thiscanip,
and the coming of capital once again
to this section has acted ns an inspiration. Tbe deal now pending on the
Lone Bachelor, if successfully negotiated,
will be the means of diverting even
more attention to our mineral resources,
anibthe likelihood of other properties
being opened up in the very near future
all tends to increase the satisfaction
which is being felt at the turn of the
tide. The recent decision in the llaris-
White case now gives the former uninterrupted right to work the ground in
dispute, and with tlie high price for
silver staring the company in the face,
it is only reasonable to suppose that J.

early date to take advantage of lhe
ruling of the full court.

A famous legal contest in the Britisli

men, John M. Harris of tlie Star .Mining it Milling company owning the Babbit Paw and Hcibcr claims, and the
Byron N. White company, owners of
the Slocan Star, Goldsmith and other
claims near Sandon, B.C., has resulted
in favor of Mr. Harris as far as the exploratory work is concerned. But tlie
full court ruled that the plaintiffs must

would be six months ago
the assemblage; "Buck,., back," was
taken up by everybody, end all retired
to places of sad ty. But what was that
horrible odor which was being borne
hither and thither on the buoyant
breeze ? Was it from the car, or was
some pestilential plague falling as a
mantle upon our serene city ? Heavier
and thicker became lhe air with the
noisome vapor, and young faces turned
sickly and warm hearts chilled. What
is it? ah, what is it? Who among
them could save the city ?
Upon the scene there then arrived
one George Bruder, Biiifling the air
critically ns be came. Instantly he was
acclaimed   the    savior  of    the   buig.
Where ? " he asked. '* There ; there,"
and a hundred fingers pointed to lhe
car. With lightning footsteps sped the
iron-nerved hero to the scat of trouble,
and a hundred nerveless citizens saw
him spring lightly aboard, and a prayer for his suf' ty escaped a few. Ten
seconds passed���twenty���thirty���a minute���what was happening in the dark
depths of that mysterious ear. Had he
been confronted with the spirit of it man
who had been foully done to death, and
had he sunk a quivering heap upon the
floor? No, no; not that. Just when
the pent up feelings of the crowd had
nigh reached bursting point, he le-
appeared ot the door dragging at his
feet a massive box. No sign of fear
was upon his cheek ; there rep'sed
thereon an exultant smile of triumph
as he folded his arms as he stood there
alone, ascal.n and as cool as a statue ol
stone, and a mighty roar from the populace rent the air. But hush, he is
about to apeak, What did he say,
what���? Tell it not in Gatll, whisper it
not in the streets of A-kclon, in a voice
which betrayed his emotion he c.ied :
"A* last; at last! my Limbciger

The Nelson Daily News of Wednesday last published an editorial on the
Chin so labor question, as it affects
British Columbia, which has the true
ring. We hasten to assure 'Brer Deane
"them's our sentiments," and so to
to help the News to regain the prestige
it lost in this district by its ill-advised
"Black Eye" article, we gladly publish the chief ponU in the editor's
reasonings. 1 he occasion which called
for the nr icle under question was a
lengthy editorial plea in the Lumberman and Contractor, of recent date, for
the nboli ion of the Chinese head tax,
and it says : " It is now the wish of all
those who have the welfare of the province at heart to see Iho gates thrown
wde open between June and the Orient
and the Chinamen ire '.of any bead-tax."
To which tbe Daily News replies:���
"Such a.' pronouncement at this
time is most inopportune and can
serve no good purj o=e. It may as
well be accepted without further discussion that Chinese coo.ie labor wi 1 never
again be admitted free into Canada, and
no one who has the real interest of this
province at heart should wish to see the
labor requirements of British Columbia
met from such a source. But it is to
the mischievous nature of such articles
as the one quoted from that we wish to
call attention just now.... It lias been
decided liy the provincial government
to make some intelligent efftn't to divert
to this province a large piopoitiou of
ni.nigriints from tlfc British Isles, the
most desirable class of settlers that can
be secured. By way ol inducement to
able-bodied wo king men from the
United Kingdom to come to British
Columbia wo tire able to point to the
well paid labor of our mines, forests
forests and orchards, and to give assurance? that no industrious man need experience any difficulty in obtaining any
remunerative employment. Now, just
its these s'eps are being taken to encourage an influx of britisli emigrants,
we have tbe organ of one of our leading
Industries declaring loud-mouthed that
Chinese lal or is essential, that without
Chinese we cannot, develop our forest
wealth, that the whole country is demanding the free influx of Chinese, and
that without them this glorious province can never make headway. This
sort of thing will make very encouraging rinding for intending Britisli settlers. If th'-y think that, they will have
to go up against Chinese, competition in
tlie labor market, they will givo (his
province a Wide berth, nnd wisely so.
The impression that still prevails widely
in the east, nnd to some extent Great
Britain, that Chinese labor is plentiful
iu this po ince is one of the principal
reasons why white laborers of tho very
class required for tlie common labor in
our mfnes, iu and around the sawmills,
and on the farl&MVttd orchards will not
come this way.
Let it once lie thoroughly known
abroad that this is a white man's
country and the natural advantages
British Columbia offers to the industrious and Bteady working man will soon
bring hither tlie class of people we want
if British Columbia is to be a land of
homes and not a mere workshop for
cheap oriental labor."
V'iotis trials, amounting to over $18,000,
w:is dismissed with costs.
This great battle between two big
silver-lend Slocan mining companies,
With the Star M. & M. Co. headed by
J. M. Harris, as plaintiffs, and the
Byron N. White Co. with Byron N.
White of Spokane as presid nt and
chief stockholder, as defondan's, commenced five years ago. The plaintiffs
claimed the right to follow their lead,
the apexof which they chimed wits
upon their own ground, into adjacent
territory under the old law.
Aftert a long delay the case finally
came to trial in Nelson, B.C., before
Chief Justico Hunter without a jury,
The main trial occupied ill days in
the hearing, and in addition tho chief
justice twice viewed the mine workings
personally, nnd later, iu Dei ember last,
the argument wai heard at the Coast.
Previous to the trial a certain amount
of exploratory work was done, under
the direction of the court, but tho
plaintiffs wanted more work done.
Previous to tlie argument on the main
case at I lie Coast a f rmal application
made by the plaintiffs for more ex-
p'oratory work, was refused by the
chief justice who then heard tlie main
argument and found against the contention of the plaintiffs, dismissing lhe
action with costs. The order based ou
the judgment refusing lo allow more
work lo he done, and dismissing the
action with costs, was perfected in February, whereupon tlie the plaintiffs
launched an appeal against both findings in March.
Whether tiie I'cfendttnts will now appeal to the lords of the privy council
remains io be Bonn, but it is more than
probable that this will 1 e the next step
in this famous drawn out suit.
The new work asked for by the p'ltin-
tiffsand now directed to bo done by
the full court is tho extension north
and south of what ia known as the
"Black Fissure,"at the twopoint*,wbore
the plaintiffs claim it culs off the defendants lead. If this work is done
then tho evidence of what is disclose.1
will be laid before tbe full court, who
will presumably ascertain if I he previously given decision is affected or not.
The famous " Black Fissure " is an
immense dyke cutting the northerly
end of the Slocan Slar vein, it being
designated the " Black Fissure" by Mr.
Harris' expert, Frank L. Bluer of Helena, Montana,
It is claimed by Mr. Harris' friends
that tho Byron N. White Company
drifted around this dyke northerly
from tho Slocan Slur to the Goldsmith
vein, owned by tho White company,
and lying northerly from Harris' Rabbit Paw claim.

And in this small circle composed of
four women���for Mme. d'Ancel, though
she announced her departure every
clay, still remained at the chateau���
nothing was spoken of but the disaster. Friends had offered their services
anil sympathy; and by dint of talking
anil turning this sad story over, they
finally became used to it, and no longer shrank from a glance, or the hearing of an awkward allusion, or a word
of pity. Little hy little, they resumed
their old habits, while still awaiting
the permission to visit the prisoner.
Then, one by one, the summer neighbors left for their city homes; the
autumn came cold and sad, and Isolation began to be felt.
One day, not long after the arrest,
TCiImee, who had been contemplating
a piece of embroidery In silence, suddenly looked up and said:
"Marthe I have never understood
why you told the officer that you had
gone down into the park on the day
of the murder, when I left you so 111."
Marthe shuddered. She had lone expected these words, but had finally
come to the conclusion Ihat In the
violent emotion she had experienced,
Edmee had forgotten an incident
which she could not understand, If
called upon, however, she had decided to tell the truth, or at least a part
of the truth, since It must be i-evealed
some day.
"I did go down," she answered,
gravely, after a moment of silence.
"What difference did It make to the
officer whether you went or not?" insisted Edmee.
Marthe had become so pale that the
three women looked at her in consternation.
"Listen, Edmee," she faltered, "I
did not want to tell you of���this meeting���for I feared that you might misconstrue this simple action. Like all
our friends, I had remarked Robert's
significant attention towards you, and
I wanted to question him. I felt as if
I were entrusted with a sacred trust,
and wanted to play the role of a loving mother. I had given a rendezvous
to Robert In the park. At the time the
crime was committed, we were both
seated at the foot of the stone cross."
"Then���why did they arrest Robert
since you said?���" stammered Edmee,
as she arose agitatedly.
"The officer did not believe my word,
and you Innocently confirmed him In
the conviction that I had lied to save
"And you had lied!" she hissed,
flushing angrily.
"I spoke the truth," replied Marthe,
Unable to control her fury, Indifferent to the wounds she Inflicted, Edmee cried violently:
"Then you are the cause of all my
miseries! Ah! don't speak to me of
people who meddle In other people's
affairs. I had no need of your aid, I
always guided my own hark alone. If
you had minded your business. Robert would have met me at Mrs. Robinson's reception; he would have been
seen there by all, and no one would
think of accusing him of that stupid
murder. And I would not be in the
equivocal, ridiculous situation of being
married and without a husband���"
"Edmee!" protested Marthe, painfully.
"It Is all true," she continued, heedlessly. "When I was a child I was
taken to see a play In which a marriage had been declared void, on account of I know not what. In the next
act, the bride still appeared In her
white dross; but In the midst of the
orange blossoms could be seen small
green oranges, others almost ripe,
and that made people laugh."
"They took you to see pretty things,"
muttered Aunt Relie.
"Well," went on Edmee, more and
more excitedly, every morning I
searched among my orange blossoms
to find tho little green oranges���that
always put me Into such a frenzy that
yesterday I burned them. Here, the
servants call me Mademoiselle Eilmee
more than half the time, the peasants
look at me curiously, and I repeat It���
my position is ridiculous, Intolerable!"
Once more, In the silence that fol
lowed this outburst, Aunt Relle's voice
waa heard murmuring:
"This time the knot has broken the
needle short."
"My poor little Edmee," said Marthe, very gently, "when you recover
your composure, you will regret your
violence; you will realize that it Is
horribly cruel to have been the in
voluntary cause of a frightful calamity���Ihat It renders the days painful
and the nights atrocious���"
"Ah! Marlhefl" cried Mme. d'Ancel,
thinking only of her sou, "why did you
not mention It at the time? Why did
you conceal It, so thnt now your word
does not suffice to Bave my child?"
"Why? oh why?" repeated Edmee.
"Who knows but all this mystery con-
coals a secret sentiment? In the neighborhood���so I have been lately told
���It was expected that Robert would
marry Marthe���that Is when she was
"I have not deserved your cruel
words, Edmee, and will not suffer
them," cried Marthe, indignantly, as
she arose, pale and trembling, unable
to conceal all she suffered.
"1 beg your pardon, Marthe," stammered Edmee, somewhat a!j#ashed,
"but if you knew how unhappy 1 am."
"Poor child," said Marthe, kissing
her sister affectionately, "1 suffer as
much for you as 1 do for my own
After this explosion of unjust recriminations, there was a profound
silence; thou they tried to speak of
something else, but did not succeed,
if'iually Mme. d'Ancel looked up aud
"I shall leave for home this afternoon, where my presence is necessary.
As lhe solitude frightens me, I would
be pleased io have Edmeo accompany
me. She can take possession of the
apartments set aside for her, where
she will be in her own little kingdom,
in her husband's home. And I shall
see, my dear child," she added, with
a faint smile, "that you are never called 'Mademoiselle.' Marthe will not
remain alone, since for many years
her aunt has acied as mother to her;
and, besides, she Is so kind, so generous, that she will not refuse to lend
me her Utile sistor."
This soiulion brought relief. Edmee,
like a spoiled, willful child, after her
paroxysm of anger was over, gorgot
its violence, anil tried to make others
forget it also by being caressing and
affectionate. But she was, nevertheless, delighted at the proposed change.
When the sound of the carriage
wheels had died away in the distance,
Marthe seated herself on an ottoman,
and laid her weary head on her aunt's
lap, as she had often done when a
child. The silence of the large drawing-room seemed so restful, and the
gentle caresses of Mme. Despois'
plump hand comforted her. She could
now speak or be silent, as she wished;
she was no longer constrained to exertion.
I "My poor little Marthe," murmur-
��� ed Aunt Relie, very softly, "and I did
not understand. You loved him, and
you gave him to your sister."
Marthe had not the strength to protest���and she did not. say no. She
wanted to weep, but she had no more
The motherly caresses, the wblspe -
ed words of affection, calmed and
soothed her. Suddenly, as if in spite
of herself, Aunt Relie cried out:
"Did I not toll you thai misfortune
would enter this house with the actress' daughter?"
The day fixed for the trial was approaching, and the murderer was still
undiscovered. Mme. d'Ancel and Edmee had been admitted to see the
prisoner and returned from their visit
somewhat reassured and hopeful.
Robert seemed so sure of the result,
spoke so definitely of their trip to
Italy, fixing the date immediately after
the trial, that he inspired confidence
in them both. He had a long interview
with his lawyer, a man celebrated for
his convincing eloquence, whom the
Marquis de Saint Pierre had recommended. The lawyer had no doubt of
an acquittal.
In the meantime, Robert worked ardently on his historical work. He had
completed the first, chapter, a chapter
of general observations which had required long and minute researches.
The weather had now become
abominable, and visits between the
chateau and its neighbors were rare,
the Intercourse between them being
almost restricted to short notes which
brought snatches of news to the two
secluded women. There was a visible
constraint between the two sisters
when they met. The long, intimate
chats, which had been such a source
of pleasure to both, were no longer
possible. They nevertheless still appeared very affectionate toward each
other, and Edmee exerted herself and
almost displayed her old coquetry to
ragain her lost grounds, for she could
not exist without the love and worship of those who surrounded her. She
had now recovered her gaiety and
high spirits; there was such a craving
of life and joy in her nature, that sadness and despair could not long survive. Gaiety, after all, is more a matter of temperament than of circumstances. The first time Marthe heard
the merry laugh, she shuddered; it
seemed to her that the echo resounded within the prison walls over there.
Mme. Despois had entirely resumed
her former antipathy. "Humph!" she
would often mutter, "she was very
sweet as long as she could take advantage of the affection she knew so
well how to inspire. But now she has
no further need of It. She had robbed
us of the husband she desired, and
we are almost forgotten. Of .course
she wants to keep a loop-hole for herself, for, as neighbors and relatives,
we may, after all, be of some use. It
would not be good policy to quarrel;
but, as for Intimacy, real friendship���
ah! as to that, it Is passed forever.
And to think that Marthe suffers from
her neglect, that she loves her���with
that exaggerated love she bestowed
on even her most disgraceful looking
dolls in her childhood. If the sacrifice
wero to be gone over again, she would
not Bhrink from it; if a still more
painful sacrifice were imposed on her,
she would accept it."
Auut Relie little suspected how true
a prophet she was! She never again
referred to the secret she had guessed, and Marthe gave her no encouragement to speak of it, as the least
allusion caused her atrocious suffering.
In spite of all, Marthe still hoped.
The assassin would surely be discovered in time, and her painful sacrifice rendered unnecessary. Many
promising clews were followed, but
all ended In disappointment. Everybody, even those who had been most
hostile to Robert, began to believe In
this mysterious criminal, and hopod
that chance might lead to his dicov-
ery. A criminal who escapes detection
usually becomes bolder and does not
stop at his first attempt; a second
crime often leads to the discovery of
the first.
Thanks to her friend, the old Marquis, Marthe was kept fully Informed
of the divers phases and steps undertaken In the case. At each new clew
she felt assured of success, and at
each new deception she sank back
heavily Into her grief. Her health began to suffer seriously from these terrible agitations, nnd her poor, pale
features presented a vivid contrast
with the fresh, rosy fade of Edmee,
who, after the first shock, had quickly
regained her appetite, and was busy
making plans for the promised trip to
At last the day preceding the trial
dawned. No new discovery had been
made, and again fickle public opinion
had turned hostile to the accused, the
bearer of an aristocratic name.
A sensational Parisian newspaper,
celebrated for its violence against all
accused persons, published a very remarkable resume of the Bertrand-
d'Ancel affair, which was a veritable,
an overwhelming condemnation. The
prejudiced writer gave a host of details concerning the yout'h of the two
former friends, their quarrels at college, and the antipathy of their natures; he dwelt at length on the rivalry of these two men who loved the
same woman, a rivalry which, from
the very first day, had assumed an
extraordinary violent and passionate
character. There was also a vague allusion to the captain's well-known
skill as a duelist and to Robert d'An-
cel's studious and sedentary life,
which made him lncontestably Inferior to his adversary In the manipulation of arms.
All this was so forcibly told, that
the jury called upon lo pass judgment
on the accused could have no doubt
that Robert d'Ancel wns the assassin;
that if anyone asserted his Innocence,
t was only because influenced by bis
great name and fortune.
This article threw Marthe into a
state of the wildest consternation and
affi ight.
Early the next morning she was to
leave for Caen, where she had been
summoned as a witness. The mother
and the young wife of the accused had
been spared this torture; furthermore, they had nothing to tell that
was not already known.
The day was bitterly cold, but Marthe was determined to see her adviser,
the Marquis, whom she found at home,
detained at the house by an attack of
the gout.
"I know all, my child, I have read
the article," he said, sympathizingly,
as she entered.
"What Is to be done?" she asked,
"There Is nothing to be done. M.
Bertrand is moving heaven and eanii
to obtain what he calls justice; he
has many friends among newspaper
men. It neems that Robert w;is foolish
enough to treat him haughtily al the
time of the inquest and now this man
thinks it his sacred duty to leave no
stoue unturned to obtain vour brother-
in-law's condemnation. He Is a
powerful adversary, and we have relied too much on the Insufficiency of
the proofs against Robert. The change

vicinity reassured us;    wo   supposed

"One day in the fall of 1874," said an
old retired detective, "one of the most
finished and successful bank burglars
that ever used, a drill In this country
was walking across Sixth avenue, New
York, enjoying his parole and the mellow sunshine. There were a whole lot
of Indictments hanging over him, of
course, but they didn't worry him any,
for he happened to be on pretty fair
terms with some of the men attached
to the municipal administration at that
time. As he swung along he was accosted by a prosperous looking man
whom he did not know, although the
prosperous looking citizen addressed
the burglar by his right name. The
crook, finding after some stalling that
tbe man who knew his name wasn't a
detective, took him into a cafe and
asked him some things.
" 'In the first place, how did you
know me?' he inquired of the stranger.
"Well, It appeared that the burglar
had been pointed out to the stranger
by a detective who was io shady that
be afterward did time for surreptitiously extending aid and comfort to the enemy, one of the old time bands of New
York crooks.
" 'All right,' said the cracksman then.
'Now, I don't suppose you are seeking
my acquaintanceship for the sake of
being introduced Into society or for
the enjoyment of my winning ways.
What's your lay?'
"Then tbe stranger up and told the
burglar what his graft was.
" 'I'm the cashier of a bank a bit up
the state,' said he to the burglar. 'The
directors don't know anything about
it, but I'm short In my accounts.
There's only one way out of It. The
bank will have to be robbed by professional cracksmen. That will let me
out, and In addition I'll expect to get
my rakeoff from the robbery. I want
you to rob the bank. You'll find $35,-
000 in cash In It on the night you arrange the job. I'll attend to that. Of
course I waut my bit out of that, $10,-
000 at least. I've always heard that;
you're square In these divisions of
plunder, and therefore I'll trust you to
hand me my share after you've done
the job for putting you on to It.'
" This sounds good enough to eat,'
replied the cracksman. 'Fact is, it's so
swei t that it's almost cloying. Now,
I've heard your proposition. You give
me a couple of days to Investigate you,
and then we'll talk business.'
"They arranged another meeting at
tbe same place a couple of days later,
and in the meantime the cracksman,
whose facilities were the best, looked
into tie job. He found that his man
really was the cashier of an up state
bank In a town not more than an
hour's run from New York. So when
the cashier called at the appointed
time the burglar was ready to talk
business.        .
" 'You'll have a hard night's work,'
said the cashier, 'for lu order to avert
suspicion I'll have to leave the vaults
and safes locked tighter'n a drum, as
usual. You'll need several assistants.'
" 'That's my end of It,' replied the
cracksman. 'You just let me handle
those little details. Every man to his
trade.. They don't make 'em so strong
that I can't get Into 'em.'.
"Then all of the details were arranged, and the robbery was fixed for
a certain night in the following week.
The cashier was especially solicitous
that he should get his share of the
proceeds of the crib cracking. The
cracksman assured him that if there
was $35,000 in the job $25,000 would
be enough for himself and his associates and the cashier would get the
rest. On the night fixed the cracksman end three of his best men went
up to the t6wn and pulled off the job.
It was a matter of four hours before
the gang after overpowering and gagging the watchman got Into the main
safe. They found it empty. Then they
tackled the smaller safes. These, too,
were empty. The top notch cracksman
was pretty mad, naturally.
"He had been played for a good
thing, and he knew it. The cashier
had simply looted the bank himself,
and the robbery which he had arranged was to cover up his own trail.
There have been Napoleons of finance
without number developed from among
bank cashiers, but I never heard of a
neater job than that
"Of course the cracksman and his
pals bad nothing for It but to pack
their kits and drill back to New York.
They weren't, of course, In a position to
say anything about how they'd been
done. The top notch cracksman had
to read in the afternoon papers the
lurid accounts of how the bank bad
been robbed of cash and securities 'approximating $100,000 In amount' and
grind bis teeth and cuss. Tbe bank's
failure was announced a few days
"Tbe cashier? Ob, within a dozen
-rears be died a beggar on the streets
of New York."

The average countryman would laugh
at you if you were to tell htm that you
had seen the wasps this summer playing the part of the exemplary bee and
gathering honey from the flowers In the
garden. But the countryman would be
wrong and you would be right, for of
late, for some mysterious reason, the
wasps .have heen busy among the tall
flaming spikes of the red hot pokers
(Trltoma uvarla), whose blooms an>
especially fl.no this August.
What the bees think of it one cannot
say, but they are not to be seen mingling with the wasps. The latter, when
they feel inclined toward honey, usually make an attack upon the nearest
beehive, and very often come off second best, unless they attack in force.
But now that the wasp has shown an
inclination to gather honey first hand
from flowers, surely the scientist can
step in and teach it to store It for the
needs of man In the comb, which It
can already make as perfectly as the
bee, though of a different material.
The chief difficulty, perhaps, would bo
to prevent the wasp, like the child in
the strawberry bed, from eating all ho
gathers on the spot.���Pall Mall Gazette.
Keeping Friends With Bees.
A contributor mentions a singular
custom adhered to by many country
people who keep bees. It is that of
telling the bees whenever anything unusual Is about to take place or has taken place, such as a death, birth or marriage. It is believed that if this wero
not done the bees would leave the hive
or some misfortune would befall the
In illustration the correspondent says
that his brother had a good many hives,
and some years ago, when his daughter died, the bees all left. The old gardener at once attributed It to his having
forgotten to give "totice to the bees, who
were duly Informed the next time there
was a death in the family, and they remained In their hives.���London Standard.
Bees Hold Up Railway Station.

At length a forlorn hope, consisting
of an aged porter, was Induced by the

account of the destruction caused In
his conservatory by the leaf-cutting
Last Sunday a solitary bee found Its
way through tho open windows, but
th* news that rose leaves wero available: in that part of a district where
rose cilture is uncommon had been
conveyeu with such success that this
week the glass house was swarmed with
the bees. Our correspondent says the
noise they make Is like the working of
countless pairs of minute scissors. The
bees have denuded his roses of their

The Perils of Marriage.
"1 married a widow, who had a
grown-up daughter. My father visited
our house very often, fell in love with
my step-daughter, and married her; so
my father became my son-la-law and
ray step-daughter my mother because
she was my father's wife. Some time
after my wife had a son. He was my
father's brother-in-law and my uncle,
for he was the brother of my stepmother. He was also my father's grandson. My father's wife, I.e., my stepdaughter, had also a son. He was, of
counse, my brother, and also my grandchild, for he was the son of my daughter. My wife was my grandmother, because she was my father's wife's (that

Only London Humor Genuine.
AH the best humor that exists In our
language is Cockney humor. Chaucer
was a Cockney; he had his house close
to the Abbey. Dickens was a Cockney;
he said he could not think without the
London streets. The London taverns
heard always the quaintest eof*,ersa-
tlon, whether it was Ben Jonson's at
the Mermaid or Sam Johnson's at the
Cock. Even in our time It may be noted that the most vital and genuine
humor is still written about London.--

Birds are often purchased in the bird
market at Lucknow, India, in order to
be set free again. This is done by Hindoos as a work of merit and by Mohammedans after certain rites have
been performed as an atonement, in

Is essential thnt a bird u��ed for this

cruel dealers to feed tho birds, or to
refrain from dislocating their wings or

everything to good or bad iuck, and
leave tbe customer to choose a strong

If he cannot. The merit obtained by
setting a bird free Is not attributed to

from Its attendant spirit, and hence

Paralysis is always looked upon i
With dread but people who are suf-!
ering from the ordinary symptoms
of nervous exhaustion such as sleep-
'essuess, headache, indigestion and
loss of energy and ambition often forget that neglect alone is enough to
ead on to paralysis.
While this severe case of paralysis
was cured by the use of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food it is always wiser and
��afer to prevent sueh dangerous diseases by watcliing minor symptoms
anil keeping tlie nervous system in
goo;i  condition  at all  times.
Mis. W. R. Sutherland, St. And-
lews, Man., writes:���
"In February, 1E03, I was stricken
with paralysis, fell helplessly on the
floor and had to be carried to bed.
The doctor pronounced it a bail case
as I had no power in my tongue of
left. leg. 1 remained in Hint condition
'or Mix months without obtaining
benefit from the doctor's prescriptions or other medicines.
"My husband advised me to try
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food and by the
use ol tltiH treatment all symptoms ol
rhe disease disappeared. I can now
talk plainly, my leg is ail right and
I ca-* do my housework. How grateful I am to be cured by so wonderful .   remedy."
Notwithstanding tlie mystery that
is associated with the nerves and ilis-
fase-i of the nerves there is nothing
.nysterious about the way in which
���;,e viiatit., oi the nerves is restored
ly Di. Chase's Nerve Food.
In nature are fo.ind certain ele-
.nent..-, which go directly to form new,
i ch blood and create new nerve force.
Because Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is
composed of those very elements of
���itituie, it builds up the nervous system ns no preparation was ever
known to do.
By enriching and purifying the
blood it forms new, firm flesh anil tissue, rounds out the form, restores a
healthful plow to the complexion, and
gradually but naturally und certainly
replaces weakness and disease with
henllu,   strength   and   vitality.

Tin' fables of /Esop prove that the
ancients were not without a liking for
inn. uud the remains of ancient art tell
ihe same story. Examples of artistic
humor are more common than is supposed by most persons.
A drawing ou a tile iu the Metropolitan museum, in New York, represents
n cat dressed as au Egyptian lady of
fashion. She is seated languidly In a
chair, sipping wine out of a small bowl
and being fanned nnd ottered dainties
by an abject looking tomcat, his tall
between bis legs.
The cat figures largely In the ancient
comic groups of auimnl life. In a
papyrus in the British museum a flock
of geese are being driven by a cat and
a herd of goats by two wolves with
crooks and wallets. One of the wolves
is playing a double pipe.
There is in the museum of Turin a
papyrus roll which displays a whole
series of such comical scenes. In
the first place a lion, a crocodile and
nn npo are giving a vocal and Instru-
meutal concert. Next comes an ass,
dressed, armed and sceptcred like a
phar.'ioh. With majestic swagger he
receives the gifts presented to him by
a cat of high degree, to which a bull
acts as proud conductor.

One of the most Important functions
of that mysterious physical condition
we term sleep Is so little understood
that persons who cheat themselves
habitually out of two or three hours
of their natural rest every night are
beard wondering at tbe same time why
they are affected with dyspepsia and
malnutrition. Care, even rigor, In the
matter of diet seems to avail nothing,
the stomach continuing in a condition
of chronic revolt.
In reality the processes of digestion
and assimilation are so closely Interwoven with slumber that unless the
required amount of sleep Is taken It is
Impossible for the body to be nourished, if, Indeed, the food undergoes the
ordinary digestive changes.
It is only when the brain and the entire nervous system are practically off
duty that tbe processes of ultimate nutrition take place. The food eaten Is
finally assimilated and transformed
Into new tissues, into blood, muscle,
nerves and brain, only while the body
Is relaxed in slumber.
A curious Illustration of this necessity of sleep is that furnishedc by the
six day endurance races. One man engaged In these deadly tests eats five
times as much as a man on ordinary
labor could cram dowu. Want of sleep
his rendered it impossible for even the
enormous amount of food taken nt this
time into tbe body to form l.w tissue.

ispecially where there are childrep.
In most homes too chapped hands,

For these you need a balm which
is pure, herbal, free from mineral fat,
antiseptic, able to stop bleeding and
which should heal.
Zam-Buk meets all these require-
Tients. Why not prove its merits.

bad bruises on my knee. I also find
it excellent for chapped hands."

Says:���"1 had an ulfierated leg, which
became so bad that I could not wear
a boot. The foor and ankle were
swollen to nearly double their ordin-
try size, and the pain was terrible.
The ulcers spread in a ring all round
the limb. Doctor's treatment brought
no relief, and at one time it was
thought only amputation could end
the agony I suffered. Zam-Buk was
brought to my notice, and I bought a
!ew boxes. Each box gave me more
ease and healed the ulcers. To-day
1 am quite cured, the limb is sound,
and whereas before I could not stand,
now I can go up and down steps with
ease.   I owe it all to Zam-Buk."

Japanese Art Sx-mbnls.
If a Japanese nrtist wisbes to describe in color nnd design the anticipation of happiness be draws a picture
which is a combination of an April
evening, a moon, a nightingale and a
plum tree or two. Victory Is symbolized by the Iris, grace and quietness by the willow tree and the swallow for symbols. Patriotism is sometimes indicated by a spray of cherry
blossoms. The almond flower Is the
flower of spring and symbolizes beauty.
The dragon twines and writhes an
artistic course through all Japanese
art, root and branch. His name Is
Tatsu, and when you sec him pictured
as fighting with a tiger it is the symbol
of religion fighting against power. A
dragon floating about in the clouds
means success in life. Tori, the cock,
perched upon a drum, signifies good
government. Both the Greeks and the
Japs use the butterfly to symbolize immortality.
