Bailey, foreman for Col. Swanitz, shot
and mortally wounded Hob Mcintosh, a
suli-1'oreman, with a .".Oxliii Wlnchestei
on a railroad grade at Low River, 16
miles from .Valdez, and Is now in jail
at Valdez awaiting trial under an Indictment in the U.S. district court
charging him with murder in the first
degree. The fatal shot was tired at a
distance of only a few feefand perie-
traieiljthe victim's"neck, death resulting in a] few minutes.
Bailey had been drunk the night before the murder, but was sober when
he tired the shot, an act which from
the account brought to Seward appears
to have been deliberate. Associates
on the railroad .say it was due to jealousy of Mcintosh on Bailey's part.
The latter was regarded as Incompetent by the men, with whom Mcintosh
was popular, and it is supposed that
Hailey hated his subordinate because
he feared the latter might get his
The evening the killing took place
Bailey went into the kitchen and ordered the flunky to give him a revolver.
He also compelled the flunky to give
him .some cartridges under a threat to
assault him. Then Bailey saw the
Wind ester in a canvas sack and proceeded to cut olf the sack and walk
away with tho Winchester. Just outside he met timekeeper Shattuck,
whom he also disliked. He demanded
of the timekeeper:
"Shattuck, do you value your life ? "
Shattuck was paralyzed with astonishment and did hot answer. Bailey
"If you do, get to hell out of here as
quick as God will let you ! "
Shattuck turned and entered the
house, ivont 0,1 through and started to
run out of the other end. At the same
time Bailey walked around on the oul-
Bide. The flunky saw, him and made
tracks for Sht'ety. Bailey then went
to another b lilding where Mcintosh
was and called tin* latter oi't. As

Her Sister's
Author of "A Woman'* Vengeance," ������Which Loved Him
Best," "Between Two Loves," "Fairy Gold," Etc.
Marthe had never had an Intimate
friend to whom she could confide her
girlish secrets; her school-mates hay-
ins been nothing more than companions. Tills may explain why she had
early begun to keep a diary. She loved
to analyze her thoughts and sentiments, and confided all to her journal
with absolute sincerity. This she called
tho examination of the heart. Often,
when the rest of the household was
hurled in profound slumber. Marthe
unlocked her secretary aud took out
a hook which no eyes but hers ever
perused. Carefully stowed in another
compartment, were several similar
volumes, containing a faithful record
of all the thoughts and Incidents of
earlier years. Sometimes she opened
one at random, and discovered long-
forgotten events which, at the time,
had seemed of supreme importance;
enthusiasms that had quickly died
out, childish griefs that provoked a
smile, beginnings of romances which
had never gone beyond the first chapter, declarations and opinions of
eighteen which now made her blush.
But she preserved them all; for she
thus learned to know herself and be
Indulgent to those who, in their turn,
matured slowly, displaying Intolerance, violence, thoughtlessness. Just
as the fruits are bitter and acid before
ripening���she also learned to be
patient with herself and not despair
when she found herself giving away
to pride and intolerance.
One night, when her sister had fallen into the deep slumber of a child
weary with play, Marthe took out her
diary and resumed her writing.
"Tuesday, June 30.���And the last
date is June 16, the day on which,
after a sleepless night spent In prayer
and struggles, I resolved to receive
Edmee and welcome her as a sister.
"Nothing since. It Is not indolence,
neither is It the gay life we have led
for the past week, that has prevented
me from writing; it is rather that I
did not clearly read within my own
heart, or, perhaps, that I would not.
"When that child entered my life, I
was thinking of making a radical
change in it. I was beginning to whisper to myself, very low and timidly; 'I
love.' The pride, which made me
silent and cold to Robert, that made
me assume the defensive the moment
his mother tried to speak of him, was
insensibly melting away, and I was
happy! I feared I was not loved as Intensely as I wished to be loved, that
Robert would marry me because the
union seemed desirable In the eyes of
our families and of the world. Since
a few months, this fear was sweetly,
deliciously, fading away. In Paris we
met very often. When Robert entered
our little boudoir, his eyes sparkled,
and there was a smile on his lips. This
seemed to say that he was happy to
be at my side. He never posed as a
lover, but we both knew that we had
been destined to each other for many
years; and we conversed freely, like
comrades and devoted, almost affectionate, friends. If I admired a book,
a play, or a painting, It always happened that he also was very enthusiastic
over It. His work Interested me, aad I
was of some 2'ttle service^ to him by
reading and making notes of certain
German works that treated of the subject on which he is writing. 'What a
delight It is to work with you, Marthe,'
be observed one day. 'I see better
through your eyes than through my
own!' And suddenly there arose a
vision of another existence; a united,
happy, perhaps somewhat serious life,
but full of tenderness and sweetness.
That day, he held my hand In his a
little longer than usual, and I made no
attempt to withdraw it. We are such
old friends, almost brother and sister.
Ah! there it is���fraternal affection is
a very sweet thing, but It does not
suffice; at least, It would not satisfy
"And sinee that moment I feel that
I love him, that I love hint with all
the strength and passion of my nature.
I try to hide my feelings; and that
fear, the fear of loving more than I am
loved, makes me cold, distant and constrained. And yet���
"His mother must have repeated our
conversation to him. Yesterday, for
the first time since his return, we were
alone for an instant. After breakfast,
at Edmee's request, we went out to
choose a favorable spot for lawn tennis. The young officer, George Bert-
rand, whom, I must admit, I half dislike, had gone off with my sister and
the rest, while Robert and I remained
on the lawn.
"'Marthe,' he said, suddenly, In a
rolce that grated harshly on my ears,
and with a look of determination In his
eyes, 'it is unworthy of us to remain
In thiB false position. We meet and act
as if���as If there existed no understanding between us. And yvt, we are
to be married some day, are we not?'
"I felt chilled���but why? What demon makes me so cold when my heart
Is overflowing? Was it, perhaps, that I
missed a certain vibration in his voice,
a something that would have cried out
louder than his words; 'Do you not
���ee that I love you!'
"Before replying I turned away to
pluck a rose, and, without even a
tremor In my voice, said:
" 'No, Robert; I will have no engagement. Let us remain as we are.
At the end of the summer, we shall
either part good friends or marry. Until then, let us be free, absolutely free.
And if then one of us can say: "I do
not love you as I should," let us promise each other to feel nothing but
gratitude; for the greatest disloyalty
would be to marry without love.'
"Robert gazed at me for a long time
In silence. He seemed to be searching
In my face for something that was not
there; Just as a few moments before I
had listened to his voice, trying to discover a tremor I did not hear. I felt
like marble, so great was my effort to
dominate my feelings. For at that moment it almost seemed a disloyalty to
let him see how much I loved him.
Then, with a sigh of discouragement
or impatience, I know not which, he
turned away and said, in an Injured
" 'I admire your calmness and good
sense. Remain free. As for me, until
you say clearly: "I do not love you,"
I Bhall consider myself as your fiance.'
"'No, no; that would be unjust!' I

Voice sounded strangely even to nur

" 'As you please, Marthe.'
" 'But no one muBt suspect���'
" 'No one shall suspect. Besides,' he
added, with a tinge of bitterness, 'it
would be difficult for anyone to believe   us   anything   more   than   old
friends, from your   attitude   towards
This was a strange betrothal. It
seemed rather a struggle between two
strong wills. And yet, in spite of all,
I am happy. It also seems to me that,
since our explanation, Robert is more
at ease. This man, whose youth has
been spent In study, has always
been wanting in gaiety, and now he
seems to be making up for lost time,
taking an absolute holiday, and enjoying himself like a school-boy. His
mother is radiant. I am happy in the
Joyous atmosphere that surrounds us.
and feel rejuvenated. I am filled wl-'.h
a strong Impulse to sing, to run, (o
commit a thousand follies. I scarcely
recognize my old self; and Aunt Relie,
seeing me so happy, almost forgives
Edmee, for she attributes this sudden
change to the arrival of my little sister.
"And Indeed, Edmee Is partly the
cause of It. Her budding youth fills
the air with joy, and upsets the tranquility of the somnolent old chateau.
She must have noise, bustle and
change; hers Is not a contemplative
nature, and her enthusiasm for the
country would soon die out if it presented nothing but the cares of a poultry yard, the work in the field or garden. She has nothing of the peasant,
but the life of a chatelaine suits her
perfectly. Mme. d'Ancel, like all the
rest, fell In love with her at once, and
together they have planned excursions
to Trouvllle, to the forest of Touques,
dances, and I know not what else.
Robert often Invites his friends from
the neighboring watering places, and
all those young men go straight to my
little sister, like butterflies to the sunlight. That something which attracts,
that mysterious gift, which is independent of beauty, that particular charm
of the universally adored woman���in
a word, that something which Is wanting In me���she possesses to a degree
that Is almost alarming. The peasants
who bow respectfully to me turn to
look after her; even animals feel this
curious magnetism, the birds do not
fly away at her approach, the dogs beg
for her caresses. Everywhere, and to
everybody, she is a sovereign, a beloved and adored being. I do not know
If she is fully conscious of her power;
but she Is certainly happy and enjoys
It like a veritable child. If, by chance,
she is tempted to abuse her power���
as sometimes happens with Captain
Bertrand���and I attempt to remonstrate with her, she throws herself In
my arms and promises to be better in
the future. She is one of those penitents who, thanks to a past confession
and sure of a future absolution, continues to sin with perfect impunity, believing herself almost authorized.
"But she is so childish, so affectionate, so grateful for the love I shower
upon her, and so caressing withal, that
I can not help forgiving her. 'Caressing,' sneered Aunt Relie, the other day,
'yes. indeed, but so Is my cat when she
wants something.' Notwithstanding
this severity, however, Aunt Relie is
oiso b��wltibe<? hv the charms of this
magician. I do not think Edmee endowed with extraordinary intelligence,
and doubt If ever the great problems
of right or wrong, of the immortality
of the soul, or even of the social questions have ever troubled her sleep. But
In worldly matters she is very shrewd.
Then she wants to be loved by all and
forever, and she has a thousand ways
of attaining her ends. In Aunt Relie
she at once discovered an artist who,
in default of pencils and paints, achieves marvels with her needle. Edmee may, perhaps, know how to hem
a handkerchief���which I doubt���but
she requested my aunt with imperturbable gravity to initiate her into the
mysteries of that delicate and complicated embroidery of which she makes
draperies, entire pieces of furniture,
exquisite things, so beautiful that we
dare not use them. The enthusiastic
young novice even prevailed upon her
to let her see the old vestments and
church ornaments obtained at great
expense from a curiosity shop. 'Only,'
she cautioned Edmee, "you must not
tell M. le Cure; he so naively admires
all I do, if he only suspected!' And tbe
little hypocrite answered, gravely:
'Oh! that would be betraying the professional secret, since I aspire to become your pupil!' Aunt Relie has a
peculiar way of sniffling when she
doubts anything; she sniffled noisily
as she muttered: 'That little hypocrite
Is laughing at me.' But the little 'hypocrite' spent a whole hour trying to
learn a stitch while she chattered on
very sensibly. I was making a pretense
of reading during this scene and could
scarcely keep a straight face. My aunt's
severity melted before my eyes. That
hour of patience achieved more for
the 'Intruder'���as Aunt Relie still calls
her���than all her demonstrations of affection. It Is true that when the hour
was up Edmee folded her work and
put It away In a pretty little work-
basbet���which naturally Is seldom used
���and said, sweetly: 'Come, Marthe,
let us take a run in the park; my good
behavior is still In Its tender Infancy
and must be treated gently.' Aunt Relie shrugged her shoulders, but looked
at her pupil with a smile full of maternal Indulgence. A little more, and she,
too, will be conquered!"
Nature had apparently destined
Robert d'Ancel for a life of gaiety and
idleness. He was the only ion of a
widow; free, handsome, the possessor
of a rich estate, and nothing drove
him to grave studies or great ambitions. Happily for him, at the age when
young men usually dissipate, he felt
attracted toward Intellectual pursuits.
As a pupil of the Ecole des Cbartres'
he had early distinguished himself
among his classmates by displaying a
wonderful talent as historian; and,
while still young, he had conceived
the idea of a work, to be entitled:
"History of the dukes of Savoy In the
seventeenth and eighteenth centuries."
This undertaking required Innumerable researches, years of work and
travel, and would hare proved beyond
the reach of less favored Individuals.
Notwithstanding these advantages,
Wiws-w. 1�� iiad attained, tho .am of
then, you have the whole season before
you to decide."
"'I prefer to decide at once. Once my
word given, I would look neither to tbe
right nor ti��'' the^left; but those half
engagements wbjbh are really no engagement���" p - ft
"Will disturb'your studies, wi)l tti
not?" said the mother, with a smll*}.-*
"It may have been that, but there
was also another reason. In evljkine/
Marthe's image, Robert always saw*lt
iccompanied by another. The two inseparable sisters formed a striking*
xmtrast; the one tall, slender, with
beautiful deep, grave eyes; the other;
small, dazzling, with sunshine, dimples and exquisite colorings, whose
jvery glance attracted; whose every
smile enchanted and bewitched. And
he was not sure that he listened to the
jrave voice rather than to the pearly
iaugh; that his gaze followed the dignified, stately figure, rather than the
ilmpled, childish face. This resulted
In an uneasiness be rufused to define;
almost a remorse that he would not
And he regretted, more and more
each day, not to have bound himself
by lover's vows to the woman he still
desired to marry.
Not only was he free from vows, but
no one seemed to suspect that a closer
Intimacy than in the past existed between them; not even Aunt Relie, who
had renounced her fruitless remonstrances, and almost resigned herself
to the idea that Marthe would remain
single. Robert visited the chateau
more frequently than in the past, but
Edmee's presence and the gay parties
daily gathered there explained this
change. Moreover, the young man declared that, having overworked him-
Belf during the winter, he intended to
take an absolute vacation, to live an
out-door life; to swim, to ride, to
dance and commit a thousand follies,
and somehow or other the chateau was
always directly on his way.
He was often accompanied by his
old comrade, Captain Bertrand. Though
of diametrically opposite characters,
they had always been intimate friends
at college; their very difference of
temperament producing an attraction
they could not resist. George Bertrand
had early announced his intention of
entering the military school, and affected great contempt for "bookworms." He was naturally of violent
temper, and somewhat brutal, believing physical force the supreme argument in all disputes. But Robert having
repeatedly proved that he did not excel
in moral reasonings only, the young
officer conceived a certain respect for
this bookworm," who possessed powerful muscles and knew how to use
them, too.
Under this apparent intimacy, however, the old friction was often felt,
less openly than la their college days,
perhaps, but deeper and more seriously. Military life had developed the
captain's brutality, and he often boasted of the fear he inspired in the men
under his command, regretting that
the practice of torturing them was net
permitted as in other places, claiming
that an army is really strong only
when the soldiers are reduced to automatons.
One day he related before the two
sisters how be had tortured a rebellious soldier, never losing sight of him,
always discovering him In fault, overwhelming him with abuse, punishments, humiliations; in fact, treating
him like a brute. Then, suddenly, the
brute rebelled again; the soljler disappeared and was inscribed as a deserter.
"It was a good riddance," he concluded, "for his example had a bad
effect on the rest."
"And, thanks to you, there Is one
man's life ruined," cried Marthe, indignantly. "I do not congratulate you
on the fact, Captain."
"The .cockle must be nlucked .from
shirty'and the' ffirat chapter of lifS work
was still unwritten. Notes accumulated, his sphere of studies widened, but
the result seemed far from encouraging. He had, nevertheless, abstracted
a few amusing details from this mass
of documents, and given them to the
world through the Revue Historlque,
and the articles had been well received. This first success made him infinitely happy. He had dominated a
small subject, he would one day triumph over a great one. He would be
a great historian In the true sense of
the word, and, though hts vast undertaking arose, before htm more and)
more formidable every day, he would
conquer It. Victory was still far away,
no doubt, but it would come; he could
be patient, since he felt his strength.
This secret interior struggle, which
had absorbed all his thoughts and
energy, made him taciturn, and, as the
years passed away, more silent and
reserved. He loved his mother tenderly, but he could not Initiate her
into his ambitions, dreams and doubts
ef himself, for she would have suffered
without understanding.
What she certainly could not understand was the life of seclusion led by
this big boy of hers, who could be gay
and even boisterous when the occasion
presented itself.
Naturally Mme. d'Ancel was anxious
to see him marry; and Marthe Levasseur, in her eyes, and in the eyes of
the world in general, was the ideal
wife for a serious man like her son.
For several years Robert refused to
hear of marriage. Then, each time he
met Marthe, he became more interested In her, and finally admitted that.
In fact, she did not resemble ordinary
young girls, who were usually greedy
of amusements, luxury and change.
The attraction he had felt for her
visibly increased during that winter In
Paris, and the young man sincerely
believed himself in love with his
charming neighbor, and began to look
forward to a life of Sweet happiness,
spent beside this Intellectual and
somewhat grave woman.
When his mother, a little frightened
at the initiative she had taken, timidly
related the conversation that had
taken place between Marthe and herself, Robert remained silent for a moment, then, kneeling before her, he
clasped her in his arms and said:
"Then it would make you happy to
have a daughter as well as a son?"
"So happy, my Robert."
"I can well understand It, my dear
mother, for I am continually buried In
my dusty documents, and becoming
very unsociable."
"But I don't want you to marry for
me, my son. If you love Marthe, marry
her; but If you do not love her, It
would be a cruel error for herself, as
well as for you."
"What a sentimental mother you
are," he laughed. "I love Marthe very
much, and believe I have always felt
a great affection for her. But, is It a
passion? I believe not. After all, perhaps I am incapable of feeling that
passion. If Marthe becomes my wife-
there, as I say It, an Ineffable sweet-
aess Invades my heart, and who knows?
it may be love���if she becomes my
wife, I swear that she shall be happy
and I shall be contented. Does that
suffice you?"
"It suffices me, hut It will not satisfy her. Marthe has seen her mother
suffer, and children have a wonderful I
(acuity of understanding griefs.   But,'
the grain, Maacmoiseue. Buna ooe-
dience is the soldier's first duty, and
an Indispensable quality."
"It also seems to me .that other qualities besides severity are indispensable
In an officer, "^retorted the girl, with
flushed cheek*-.
Edmee had listened In silence. The
young officer,'with his cold gray eyes,
attracted her' stangely. She considered Marthe ver'T" "severe ffi~her judgment, and admired the captain for his
bantering replies, as if, in fact, feminine appreciation in such matters could
not be treated sefloUsly. It pleased her
and flattered her, vanity to think that
this man, who was feared by his soldiers, who was capable of violence,
even Injustice, could be so gentle and
submissive to her, for the captain was
her slave, that she could not doubt. He
was ever at her side, showering a thousand little delicate attentions on her,
flushing; with joy or turning pale with
fear, according to her cold or gracious
treatment of htm. Tills amused the little coquette greatly. Marthe's remonstrances were of no avail, and for the
first time she realized that beings,
weak and malleable in appearance,
often possess a power of resistance,
an elastic obstinacy, that nothing can
overcome. Reasoning is powerless with
such natures. "Since it amuses me,"
was Edmee's only reply. The entire
universe and all its inhabitants were,
in her opinion, created for Mile. Edmee Levasseur's sole pleasure because
she was so pretty, charming and exquisite.
Besides, she was so loving and caressing that Marthe soon ceased her
homilies. After all, Captain Bertrand
could take care of himself, and all she
asked was that Edmee should not
marry him. Marry him? Oh, no. indeed. Become the wife of an officer
and be dragged from garrison to garrison, to hear of nothing but drilling
or the promotion of a favored comrade!
���No, never. Besides, to be called Mme.
Bertrand, she who loved only pretty
names with���and the foolish child
stopped confused, and blushed.
"You are a preacher in petticoats!"
cried Edmee, as Marthe attempted to
renew her expostulations. "But, my
dear sister, you might as well resign
yourself to it. I shall never be perfect,
read serious books, nor become a 'remarkable woman.' Oh! you need not
frown; the whole world, myself included, recognizes that you are remarkable. Mme. d'Ancel never utters
your name without proclaiming your
merits, her studious son entertains
you with the progress of his works^-
what an honor!���but how tiresome It
must be! No one ever dreams 01 talking to me about anything but bathing,
dancing or other gay. pretty and delicious things. I am nothing but a spoiled, petted child���although I am shrewd
enough, I assure you���a weak being,
who must be treated with sweet tenderness, who must be eternally fed on
bon-bons, who must be adorned and
perpetually smiling, whose mission in
this world is to be pretty and allow
herself to be protected. If you think
I do not see and understand, you are
mistaken. I am not the doll they think
me. I know very well what I want and
what I am doing. I have a will, too, I
assure you!"
As she went on she became more
and more excited; her cheeks flushed
and her eyes sparkled.
"What is all this about, my little
Edmee?" said Marthe, quietly. "You
are what you are���that Is, simply adorable!"
Even the most violent emotions
were of short duration In Edmee. She
hurst % o a laugh, and crept into her
sister's arms with so much caressing
affection, that Marthe was quite touched.
"Then you truly love me, Marthe?"
she murmured.
"I love you blindly. Until now my
heart has remained closed, but it has
opened for you���you whom I repulsed
at first! I love you as a sister���almost
as a mother. I want you to be happy
and good; good above all. There is
nothing I would not do to make you
"Nothing?" whispered the younger
Edmee was silent for a moment;
then, with a serious expression, she
"Listen to me, Marthe; It seems to
me that I am robbing you. You believe
me better, more affectionate, more
worthy of being loved than I really am.
I have tried more than once to make
you understand that I have many
faults, but you will not believe me. I
have no wish to deceive you, for you
are ten thousand times better than I."
"I ove me. Edmee: it is all I ask."
"Ah! as for that!���"

Strange   Places  Where   Famous  Works
of Art Hava Been  Discovered.
The recent discovery of a valuable
Corresglo In the mountain home of a
Moroccan bandit furnishes the latest
example of the romantic vicissitudes of
old masters, many of which are at least
as strange as fiction, says London Tit-
If pictures had tongues what curious
stories of wandering and adventure
some of them could tell! Take, .for
'ns'ancp. that magnificent picture '
union, a canvas sixteen reel long ano
seven feet high, representing the entombment of Christ, which was lost for
centuries, only to come to light In a
church In the heart of Mexico; or that
portrait of Nell Gwynne, by Sir Peter
Lely, which was ��� discovered not long
ago by a doctor In a Birmingham slum.
Take, too, Raphael's famous Massacre
of the Innocents," which was found, after generations of disappearance, In the
cottage of a poor widow at Como. Piece
by piece It was possible, with much difficulty, to reconstruct some of the history of this treasure of art, aind a
strange story it is. At one time It belonged to the celebrated Cardinal Yp-
pollto d'Este, Arlesto's patron, from
whose hands It passed into those of
another cardinal, Lulgt d'Este. At his
death a priest of Regglo became its
owner for the ridiculous sum of a
sovereign; and he, after refusing thrice
this sum for It, presented It to the Duke
Alfonzo d'Este, who in turn gave It to
the Princess Margherita Gonzaga, his
When the princess died the picture
passed to the Duke of Urblno, and
from that stage of its history nothing
more was heard of It until 1658, when
the Duke d'Este employed a Franciscan monk to find It at any cost. For
five years the monk sought everywhere
in vain, and at the end of the time he
reported to the duke that "after having traveled all over Italy on his quest
and employing every means, both spiritual and mental, he was farced to
abandon the hopeless task," and now,
two and a half centuries later, the long
lost picture has come thus strangely
to light.
A few years ago one of Albert Dur-
er's masterpieces was discovered, dust
smothered and despised, among the
lumber in a granary near Ceurtral. The
farmer���a woman���took it into her head
one day to clear the granary of its "rubbish," and for a few coppers she was
glad to get the son of the local coach
painter te remove it all, including the
"dirty piece of painted wood." Thf
painting was cleaned and submitted to
an expert, who recognized it as a Durer
which had been stolen from the National Museum of Munich many years
Among some old canvasses which
were knocked down for the equivalent
���f a few shillings at an auction sale al
Rome to Herr Hnnterspergh, a Tyro-
lese restorer of old pictures, was a very
Inferior picture ot flowers which was
practically worthless. The canvas, however, attracted the attention of an art
connoisseur, who suspected that there
might be another painting beneath the
surface presentment of flowers, and by
skillfully removing the layers of paint
he revealed an exquisite work of Cor-
regglo, which he later sold te Lord
Bristol for ��1,500.
Lard Crewe has among his art treasures a valuable canvas, of which the
following romantic story Is told: Many
years ago one of his ancestors had a
picture painted of his son and daughter, the former, who was very young,
being presented as a Cupid. In Later
years, when the son had grown to man-
hood, he quarreled with his father, and,
by way of revenge, cut the Cupid out
ef the canvas. For a century nothing
was seen of tbe portion of the picture
thus removed, when It fell Into the
hands of a dealer, who restored It to
the then head of the bouse.
A similar mutilation was practiced
on a valuable painting, "The Field of
the Cloth of Gold," the property of
Charles X. When Cromwell negotiated
with a Continental dealer for the sale
of the royal pictures It was found
that the head of Henry VIII. was miss.
Ing from this canvas, which thus escaped the fate of Its fellows. When
the Second Charles came to the throne
the missing part was restored by a
great nobleman, who had adopted this
Ingenious method of preventing the
picture from going out of the country.

One of those housekeeping geniuses
who manage to do their work with the
least labor has borrowed an idea In
aprons from her son, an amateur photographer.
He spoiled his clothes with the evil
smelling chemicals in which amateur
photographers revel until in a burst of
Inspiration it occurred to him to tie a
piece of waterproof goods around his
waist during his developing work.
His clothes were spared and hit
mother furnished with an idea.
She gradually banished from the
kitchen wardrobe all the checks, denim
and ticking aprons in which she bad
hitherto taken pride.
She replaced them with smaller number of oilcloth and waterproof aprons,
long skirted, bibbed, sleeved and pocketed.
In these no form of kitchen work, no
matter bow "moist and unpleasant,"
could spoil or stain the dress beneath.
When the aprons were soiled no elaborate washing and Ironing were necessary. They were as easily cleaned at
a child's slate with a sponge and dry
cloth. The maid of all work was also
furnished with them, and beneath them
she could wear a clean muslin apron
and thus be ready to answer tbe doorbell at a second's notice by the simple
process of slipping off the upper covering.���New York Press.

Gareia's Singing Lessen.
Stories ef Manuel Garcia, the famous
centenarian musician, who died a few
days ago in London, are In order. An
indomitable will power gave him great
ascendancy over each pupil; his science
and cleverness enabled him to know at
once if he had to deal with a pupil of
promise or not, and unlikely aspirants
were not allowed to waste his time
aad theirs. An acquaintance describes
a typical Incident: "I remember a notable case In point. A very rich woman
offered the master any price If he
would only teach her daughter. He refused, knowing well he could never obtain serious work from her; but, as
the mother persisted, he hit upon a
compromise. He asked the women to
be present during a lesson, and he undertook, if the girl still wished to learn
singing after hearing it taught, to
teach her. The lesson began. Tha pupil, who seemed to the listeners an already finished singer, had to repeat
passage after passage of the most difficult exercises before the master was
satisfied; he insisted upon the minutest
attention to every detail of execution.
Mother and daughter exchanged horrified glances and looked on pityingly.
The lesson finished, the master bowed
the women out, and, In passing the
pupil, the young girl whispered to her,
"It would kill me!" Senor Garcia, returning from the door, said contentedly: "They will not come again. Thank
you, mon enfant; you sang weU.'*
Bismarck ForsraTe.
Bismarck could forgive, but be
wished to do it after proper solicitation. At tbe beginning of the Danish
war Field Marshal Wrangel, who was
at the head of the Prussian troops, was
exceedingly anuoyed at one point to
be telegraphed not to advance farther,
and he returned a message telling
King William that "these diplomatists
who spoil the most successful operations deserve the gallows." After that
Bismarck Ignored bim completely, nnd
one day they met at the king's table,
where It was especially awkward to
preserve a coldness. Wrangel called
everybody "du," and presently he
turned to Bismarck, who was seated
next him, and said, "My son, cunst
thou not forget?" "No," was the curt
reply. After a pause Wrangel began
again, "My son, canst thou not forgive?" "With all my heart," said Bismarck, and the breach was healed.

When the hot summer days are upon
������ aud it Is Impossible to change our
environment tbe best help toward keeping cool is to learn to adapt ourselves
to It But with all of us bablt is m
strong that few of up think of adapts,
tlon, and as a consequence we suffer
from a way of living which is suited
only to the cold winter months.
The cultivation of peace of mind Is
the first requisite. A cool bath taken
on rising Is the best tonic to prepare
one for the duj's labor and exposure.
A tepid, cool bath or a short hot bath
may be takeu in the evening, and if
greatly fatigued it Is one of the most
effective means of bringing refreshing
sleep. Another necessity to keeplnj
cool is not only In the exercise of body,
but In the matter of diet as well. All
bodily heat arises from the oxidation
or burning of the food we eat. So
when the temperature rises the body
needs lesii fuel. A warm weather
breakfast should be a very light meal.
As four-fifths of our food Is used for
fuel It Is easily seen that In summer
we need only a small quantity to supply vitality for bodily and mental
work. Tbe Ideal breakfast would be
whole wheat bread or zwiebncK, with
some wholesome ripe fruit, such as
strawberries, plums, melons or apples.
By giving ourselves the benefit of
our store of common sense many of
ns would go forth to the trials of ���
day In the heat prepared for It by a
diet conducive to health. How many
a man prepares for such a day with a
breakfast made up of grlddlecakes,
soda biscuit, fried eggs and bacon, sausages, Worcestershire sauce and strong
coffee! B7 noon he feels the heat to
���ucb an extent that he feels compelled
to drink large quantities of Ice water,
beer or other cooling beverages. Contrast the discomforts of such a one In
the temperate zone with a cooly working bareheaded In the direct rays of
the sun in a climate 20 degrees hotter
The cooly Is not uncoufortable because
he has adapted his diet to his environment. Any man who excites bis heart
and irritates his nerves by a diet of
flesh foods must expect to need all
���orts of artificial means to make bll
life bearable In tbe hot weather.

The bird of paradise is found wild In

called not on account of its beauty,

that tbe bird came from tbe other
world and did not alight In this, so It
had no need of feet.

Medical Research Has More Than
Kept Pace With the Demands
of the Age.
It is interesting, at a time when the
greatest medical association in tile
World is about to gather in Toronto, to
note some of the most recent advances
in the science of medicine, and acknowledge once more the great debt
humanity owes to the noblest of professions, says the Toronto Mail and
Empire. Medical research has more
than kept pace with the increasing
strain and worry of modern conditions,
and has made the average life longer
than in the quieter, soberer days of our
grandfathers. More than statesmen oi
philanthropists, the doctors must he
recognized as the chief benefactors of
the race.
Of all diseases that are common, cancer is the most dreadful, and at the
moment it is the most interesting to
the medical profession. Many have
been the alleged cures discovered,
wealthy have become the quackB who
profess to ileal; but among the leading
medical scientists who have devoted
themselves to its investigation none
has been able to report such progress
as Dr. Beard. Some of his results
were discussed in these columns a few
llays ago, anil tile hope held out that
his researches had been in part successful. But a day or two later the
London cables brought the news that
i)r Beard's trypsin had been abandoned by a leading liospit.nl. Shoulu
ithis prove true, Dr. Beard must at
least be credited with most important
discoveries, even should they not immediately result in a remedy for the
disease. Only a year ago another distinguished medical man, Dr. Doyen, of
Paris, had to acknowledge failure in
his efforts to cure cancer. Doctors
were not disappointed in the result,
for Doyen based his claims on a theory
of the disease that was at variance
with established conceptions. He insisted on regarding it as caused by
bacteria, and his failure to diagnose
and  cure Was complete.
Against this failure of medical science, or rather this postponed victory,
many notable triumphs may be set.
Tuberculosis is no longer the scourge
it was ten years ago. 1N0 new medicine
has been discovered that will conquer
at, beyond the surgeon's knife it lies,
and if year by year its ravages are less,
we may thank common sense as much
as doctors. Wood living, in a hygienic
tense of the expression, is the cure foi
consumption, and it almost ranks as a
'specific like iron, mercury and quinine.
To die of typhoid fever is becoming
more and more difficult, thanks to preventive measures. "For every fatal case
of typhoid," declared a great doctor re
eently, "some one ought, to be hanged
for criminal carelessness." Diphtheria
is another disease whose mortality has
/been greatly removed, thanks to anti
toxin. A few years ago it was as deadly as a plague.
Smallpox has been conquered by sanitation, and its most dreaded result-
disfigurement���has been banished by
Dr. Finsen's light cure. Appendicitis,
which, under the name of colic ana
obscure terms ending in "itis," has
been slaying its thousands for hundreds of years, is now at the mercy oi
the surgeons. How sure are the results
��f expert operation in this disease may
be judged from the fact that Sir Fred
erick Treves, the English surgeon whe.
recently retired, operated upon a
thousand private cases of appendicitis
and lost not one.
Pneumonia remains a growing menace, but the sleuth hounds of medical
research are on its trail, and sooner 01
later will deprive it of its terrors.
Rheumatism probably causes as much
buffering as all these diseases put to
ge;her, although it is a malady many
profess to cure. Nevertheless it persists
mysterious and universal. Medical mei
generally explain it as the result o.
bacteria in the system, but a minority
maintains that it is produced soleij
hnd directly through the operation o.
well known chemical laws, resulting
entirely from improper eating. Di.
Winters, a Cornell lecturer, takes thi.
ground, and insists that a vegetariai
and non-alcoholic diet is a sure pre
Vention and a sure cure for rheumat
ism. He declares positively that si
long as a person troubled with rheum
atism takes alcohol, it is impossible
for him to he cured.
Blood poisoning, which has become

Andrew Carnegie once delivered a little homily to the pupils of a public
school in Washington, wherein he endeavored to demonstrate that the judgment of men is apt to be warped by
sentiment and feeling.
"In Scotland," asserted Mr. Carnegie,
"the people abominated hymns simply
because the Episcopalians used them.
The Presbyterians sang only the
Psalms of David. The Episcopalians
used stained glass in their church
windows, and for that reason the
Sjoteli looked upon stained glass as
something of  unholy .origin."
Continuing, Mr. Carnegie told a story
of a Presbyterian minister who had
heen bold enough to introduce this
hated ir novation. He was Bhowing it
in triumph to one of bis parishioners,
and    asked her how she liked it.

She Tells How Dr. William's Pink
Pills Saved Hor Daughter.
Anaemia is thei doctor's name for
bloodlessnens. It is an ailment that
effects almost every girl in her teens.
Womanhood makes new demainds upon her blood supply that she cannot
meet. Month after month her
strength, her very life, are being
drained away. No food and no care
can do her any good. No comlmon
medicine can save her. She needs
new blood. New blood is the one
tiling���the only thing���that can make
a healthy woman of her. Dr. William's Pink Pills actually make new
blood. That is why they never fail
to cure anaemia. That is how they
save from an early grave scores ol
young girls whose health and strength
depend upon their blood supply. Mrs.
Anson Clark, Arden, Ont., says:���
"Dr. William's Pirrk Pills have been a
great blessing in my family as two of
my daughters have used them with
marked success. When my. eldest
daughter was about seventeen she began to fail in health. Her blood
seemed to have turned to water. She
was troubled with headaches and dizziness; the least exertion would cause
her heart to palpitate violently and
she could not walk up stairs without
stopping to rest. She doctored for upwards of a year, and the doctor said
3he did not have as much blood in her
body as an ordinarily healthy person
would have in one arm. The doctor's
treatment did not do her a particle
of good. She seemed slowly fading
away. Then she became afflicted
with salt rheum and her: hands were
almost raw. About this time a neighbor advised the use of Dr. i, illiara's
Pink Pills and she began taking them.
After using the pills for a felw weeks
we could see an improvement, her appetite began to improve and a trace
of color came to her cheeks. She
continued taking the pills until she
had used thirteen boxes when she was
as well and strong as ever, every trace
of both anaemia and salt rheum had
disappeared and she has since enjoyed
the best of health.Later on my youngest daughter aged fifteen began to
lose her health, but thanks to our experience with Dr. William'B Pink
Pills we knew where to look for a cure
and after using four boxes of pills
she was all right again. I have also
used1 the pills myself for nervous
troubles  with  complete  success.

Last of the Aristocrats.
"The old French aristocracy dies with
me," cried the Princess de Valmont on
her deathbed. She was a bitter old
soul, who, born of a long line of un-
contaminated ancestors and married
to a noble of equally superfine strain,
had, through her husbund's death In
financial difficulties, to marry her Ave
children to "abominable persons" of
high character, but with the blight of
trade or Industry in their blood. Her
last years were made mournful to her
by this pitiful descent, and jus. before
her grandiose last utterance, looking
with a bitter smile at her oii'Mma and
grandchildren In tears round her deathbed, she broke silence in the following
terrible reflection: "We have here,"
counting on her fingers, "represents
Uvea of carriage making, wholesale
grocery, confectionery, coal mining and
the stock exchanges, and all grafted on
the old tree of the De Valmonts."

National Association Farmed to Pra-
mota Them In Cities.
A generation ago the environment of
tbe child was different from that now
to be found in large cities. Now a
third of the population is crowded into
the cities, and tbe narrow streets, lined
with towering buildings, have become
canyons where sunlight comes in glints
and where blasts of air laden with pestilential dust snotber and blind the
child amid the dangers from heavy
trucks, swiftly moving automobiles and
the rushing of trolley cars.
"The city fathers fain would save tbe
beauty of the city by more or less Infrequent patches of green," says Seth
Thayer Stewart in the prospectus of
the Playground Association of America,
of wbich Theodore Roosevelt is honorary president and Jacob Riis honorary
vice president, "but even these are coy-
ered with warnings of keep off tho
grass, and the city child, without the
possibilities of outdoor physical development, wonders whether tbe progress
of civilization is not conspiring with
the arm of the law to prevent the natural development of bis instinct for
play and love of nature, and even to
crush out the possibilities of child life
in larger cities."
The object of the Playground association Is to bring about the establishment and maintenance of playgrounds
in the larger cities where children and
young men may expend their physical
energy in a way that will be beneficial
to themselves. It believes that the
maintenance of playgrounds Is not a
matter of ornamental philanthropy, but
a part of the system of education of
the state necessary to the development
of tbe whole nature and not of tbe
mind only, and that It Is the duty of
the state to maintain such space, place
and opportunity in playgrounds and In
the curriculum of the schools for all
Its growing citizens.
"Believing," says the prospectus,
"that In a democracy the tide and tone
of life should be kept full and high
and that upon the physical well being
of Its people largely depends the well
being of the nation, that the stress and
strain of our industrial age, the artificial life of crowded centers and the
Isolation of the country tend to nervous disorder and breakdown, and believing that play is -Instinctive and
tends to develop tbe whole man and
the physical and moral qualities necessary to high character, thus maintaining the working power at Its best, the
Playground Association of America affirms the necessity for place, space and
opportunity In the open air in order to
Insure 'life and happiness.'"

Hunt For Panther In Sleeping-Room���
A Despora.e Chase.
A recent despatch to The London Express from Allahabad says. An extraordinary adventure in a bedroom with a
panther is told by Lleut.-Col. Rundle,
the commander of the 5th Brigade of
the Royal Field Artillery at Jubbulpore,
in The Pioneer.
One afternoon Mrs. Rundle caime out
of a portion of the bungalow that was
seldom used, and said she had seen the
tall of a panther protruding from behind a large coil of matting In one of
the rooms. Col. Rundle supposed that
the animal was a tame panther, which
he knew one of his non-com's, owned,
and sent for a brother officer to assist
in despatching It.
Opening the door enough to insert his
rifle barrel, he fired and wounded the
beast. The door swung open as the
wounded beast bounded against It. It
then sprang at Col. Rundle, missing
him by about a foot and boited.
Col. Rundle, with Lieut. Macan, re-
connolted each room in turn. Eventually the panther was found in a spare
room  hiding behind a coil of matting.
There was a window to this room
about fourteen feet from the ground,
and Col. Rundle procured a ladder, but
before he could get his rifle up the panther had seen him and sprang through
the doorway.
Lieut. Macan fired two shots, but
neither proved fatal, and the panther
bolted out of the house and across the
tennis court Into the R. A. mess compound.
Here it gave chase to an Inquisitive
sweeper, but was too badly wounded to
do more than make a clutch or two at
the man's clothes.
Finally It darted Into an outhouse,
where It was despatched.

It Is not generally known, but most
beekeepers will Inform you that such

corps of what could properly be termed "ventilating bees." During the hot

and crisp that they are transparent. Mooney's biscuits will
be a regular dish on your table
if you will try them.
