Too Often  Neglects to Cover Up Ifer  Tracks.  Several recent crimes in which  Women played the leading part have  moved the French writer, Jean Frollo,  to study women criminals.  The, .woman criminal, lie says,  never displays, in her exploits what is  known as tho "simplicity of genius."  Her crimes arc always too complex,  too ramified to escape close observation on the part of cIobo.investigators.  There is plenty of' ingenuity in them  ���������more perhaps than In those of men  ���������but where the man criminal leaves  tho one inevitable overlooked '��������� point  the female of that class will leave  a dozen.  In   particular  do   many   essentially  feminine attributes display themselves  in women  after the commission of a  crime. Frollo assures us that criminal  woman cannot conceal her secret. She  'must  blab;   and  as   another   trait  is  her unfailing desire for sympathy-In  her   hour   of   tribulation,   it   follows  that the inevitable confident is bound  In long, or short time, to extract the  secret from  the peccant feminine.  , And as for returning,  like all  criminals, to thc scene of the committed  crime,   woman   is  far  worse,   in   this  case,   than   man.     Just, as   when   in-  Jurod woman intends to take her life  she always  returns  to take it whore,  her: traducer. >stabbed  her heart.- and  her,love, so the woman who has committed  a  foul   crime   always   returns',  to tlie theatre of tragedy.  Courted   His   Own   iMoilier  The custom of  finding a  mate for  life through the 'medium of advertise-  A young Polish engineer stationed at  im    out-of-th'e-wor'ld    place    in    the  Crimea recently felt he ought to marry,   studied   the   advertisements   In  a  Polish newspaper, and replied -to one  Inserted, by  a "widow  in   the  height  of her beauty."    He  used  a nom  de  guerre,  and   gave  an  address- at  the  nearest town.    The  widow  also  used  i  pseudonym, and  they  interchanged  ;ypewritten  letters.    The young man  tvas delighted at-the propsect of becoming   engaged   to   a  young   widow  !rom  his  own   town,  and   the'widow  ooked forward to marrying again in  i'town only a, few miles away from  ler  dear., boy.

'  One would hardly recommend  Irkutsk for a rest cure. -With- a  population of 120,000. persons crammed into a couple of square .miles oh  a bend in , the Angora river,, it produces 600 murders in a year, with an  average of one arrest for each fifty  killings. And for each ten arrests  there are but five oonvictions. ' This  is . a transcription from the city's  criminal records.'

A   man .was' brought   before  his  Worship ' charged  with  being ..-on  premises with  felonious  intent.    The  circumstances were, that a young lady,  on retiring for the night to "her bedroom,-happened in a' quite-accidental  manner   to. discover  that   there   was  a man lying concealed under her bed.  She rushed out for.help, and the-man  was arrested and brought before tlie  judge.    It  was   alleged   that  he  had  got into the house through a window,  and had found his  way upstairs unobserved.   His excuse was that, under  the  influence'of drink,  hie had  mistaken, the house.   To most minds the  ��������� excuse   would   appear   to; be   a   particularly thin  one,  but  the  court-so  far accepted.it as" to dismiss the case,  holding > that  there   was  no   evidence  of  felonious' intent.     People   do,  not  enter  their own houses  thrpugh  the  window and conceal themselves under  beds as a rule, but:one has heard of  it   being -done   before   for .unlawful  purposes.    In  future  Bill  SIkes  will  have a legal precedent to quote in his  favour whenever he'is found oh other  people's premises, and the decision Is  one which will doubtless be welcomed  by the predatory fraternity.

An Unstable Platform  One of the most remarkable poli-  ial. meetings on record is described  a' Paris contemporary as having  taken place at Riga. The Letts So-  ���������oiolisfcs desired to hold a iheeting.  The Riga police expressed an oppo-  Bite view, and then the 'contest began  in reality.. It was brains versus determination. Wherever the Socialists.,  determined to pitch their camp the  police checkmated them. At last one  of the Socialists conceived a brilliant  Idea. He circularised the members of  his. organisation to have a kind of  swimming match. Qf course, the competitors were the orators. They went  into the water, and the assemblage  stood around. Then swimmer after  swimmer delivered a speech, and invited questions from those on land  It is claimed that, although somewhat  damp, the meeting was a great success.  British Columbian Fruit  The apple crop of British Columbia  will be about a two third yield, says  the Canadian Pacific reports. Peaches  are a failure with the exception of  Pentictoh, B.C., where some fair  shipments' will be made. ! Cherries  have been a good crop in the Koote-  nays, Plums, and prunes are. fair and  apricots have proven a very regular  crop. One! grower in Penticton,  gathered 5,400 pounds of apricots from  100 trees, and after, paying-.the-.cost of  picking, boxing and packing he  realized a net profit of 8 - cts. per  pound or $<J24.00, for his crOp. The  fruit shipment from\ the -Okanagan  Valley for the season will be about  300 cars.  The amount of land, under cultivation in British Columbia :and devoted  exclusively to fruit represents 140,000  acres, or an investment of easily forty  million dollars.

That's why you should read  "What The Farmer Can Do With Concrete"     B  It will open your eyes to thc hundreds of uses that other fanners have  found for (his material; In plain language, and with the  aid of many photographs, it explains just what tHese uses  are,  and  how they  can toe applied to your farm.

I stopped  that night at the house of my new  friend, and the next day I persuaded  him to accompany me on my tour.

His daughters were delighted with the idea, and 1 came north  with his check in my pocket to purchase a car large enough to hold a  man and h(s wife and four daughters."

Next morning a stray horse and  buggy were found. Four bullet marks  were on the buggy. Pink Harbert. a  cowboy, deputy - sheriff,, -was hast.'.y  summoned.

WHO'S WHO  j ��������� .IN CANADA  0OCXX>OOOOO0OCXX)OOO00OO0OO0  SIR HENRY M. PELL ATT  - Few men of the Dominion have  done better work in the direction of  bringing, to the attention of the world  beyond the seas what sort of men  they are who compose this Canada  of ours. Others have done their part  with the pen, with the'brush,xand in  other literary connections of a more  or less beneficial, character. Sir  Henry produced, the goods, so to speak.  A.t his own' financial expense, and  doubtless at no inconsiderable personal trouble and inconvenience, he  took to the old country the "Queen's  Own" of Toronto of which he is Lt-  Colonel, first to the coronation of  King Edward, and on tne second occasion ! to the Aldcrshot Manoeuvres,  thus showing to the folks in the old  land,how well Canada was following  in the footsteps of her martial progenitors, and at the same time holding out in front of all whom it might  concern, a suggestion, that should"bc-  casion arise there was a conjoint Imperial army of good men and- true to  be taken, into account.      '���������  Silt H. M. PELLATT^  Jit-Col. ''Queen's Own" Jtifles  From the mere advertising point of  view,- it was undoubtedly a great producer for Canada of brain, brawn  and  capital.  By those capable of judging, the  Colonel is reckoned a clever business  manj methodical to a degree, with the  virtue of patience running all the time  ln the correct direction. His knowledge of public affairs is wide, and  his application of that knowledge is  directed along lines that are broad  enough to bring appreciation and of  commendation from men of all colors  of politics and shades of religion.  In addition to these, and a number  of other admirable points, Sir Henry  Is first and all the time an Imperlal-  iet, ��������� and a strong ty>pe of the breed  at that.  Born at Toronto in 1860, the Colonel  had his civil life education at Upper  Canada College. His military attainments were handed out by nature.  At the age of fifteen, young Pellatt  entered the office of his father, and  If he did not actually scrub out the  floor and polish up the handle of the  big front door, he no doubt went  through the usual ordinary schedule  of the office-lad of the times. From  the outset It was on evidence that  his business acumen was right, and  when yet a young man he blossomed  out as junior partner with,his fat/her  In the firm of Pellatt and Pellatt.  Since then his name has been associated with a large number of commercial and Industrial concerns, and  In every Instance, be It said, with  honor and success.  Amongst other things, Sir Henry,  is a director of The Crow's Nest Paas  Company; is president of the Toronto  Electric Light Company, of the Toronto and Niagara Power Company,  and the Cobalt Lake Mining Company; vice-president of the Manu-  fin/vf"jr.->ra .,2JZ.% ,I^lI������2Il������^������2ffJ>ajTV; '  dTrecfoT" orihe Toronto jrcallv/ay co.,  the Richelieu and Ontario Navigation  Co., the Dominion Iron and Steel Co.,  the British America Assurance Co.,  etc., etc., and also ..finds hours to devote to the duties ..-that fall on a  governor of Grace Hospital, and a  trustee, of Trinity University.  Joining the CJueen's. Own regiment  in early life, Sir Henry- has passed  through all the commissioned ranks  to the command-, and (was, It will be  remembered, major, of the Canadian  contingent to the Queen's Jubilee  celebrations in England In 1897. He  Is member of , such clubs as the  Toronto, . National,-and Rldeau, and  all the. recreation demands of .his  nature are satisfied ln connection  with his military duties. .  H. R, H. WAS DELIGHTED  Since his arrival, H. R. H. the Duke  of Conn-aught has- signified his  pleasure' at the complete arrangements made for- his transportation  from England to the Canadian Capital  both on board the Empress of Ireland  and on the special train by which, he  was carried from Quebec. to Ottawa,  and he has highly; complimented the  C. P. R. officials on their forethought  and attention! ' One of the minor details that especially* pleased the Royal  party was a s"pecial::-ediltioh of their  annotated; time-table,,, provided for the  trip from'Quebec :jtb .'Ottawa.; The  time-table was bound In white padded  kid,' bearing the' Duke 'of (Connaught'a  coat^f-arms embossed in color.  Corn-mills are often mentioned in  the Bible. The. original corn-mill much  resembled . the" Jmo&ern jj'druggist's  pestle. Moses forbade'* corn-mills to  be taken in pawn,'for that, he thought  was like, taking a-.maS.'s life in' pledge.  Following an Outbreak of War There  Are Various Important Rules to  be Obserred by Nations that  Desire to Stand Out.  When war is declared, every  neutral power must, .observe a strict  neutrality and impartiality in its attitude towards, both belligerents. It  may allow their war, vessels to enter  Its ports, but must limit the duration  of their stay, and must regulate the  nature and amount of.- the supplies  taken on board. The usual rule' is- a  visit of 24 hours, but ,-if a-.vess'el of the  other belligerent is in, port, then one  of them must not leave the port until  the.other has had a'start of 24 hours  ahead, though, it would seem that  there.Is nothing to prevent the vessel  that leaves the harbor first to await  24 hours outside the three-mile limit  and attack the other "ship after she  puts out to sea. The supplies that  such vessel take? on board must not  be more than enough to take the  vessel to the nearest home port, and  supplies-must no* be ^again furnished  within three months. As an example  of the enforcement of the foregoing  rules, the procedure "when the Span-  Ish-American war broke out in 1898  may be ment oned. The ultimatum of  April 20, sig-.ed by President McKin-  ley, demanding the withdrawal of  Spain from Ci.ba, was taken by Spain  as a - declaration of war, and the  Spanish government pa the following  day sent the American minister his  passports without waiting for him to  present the ultimatum. On the 22nd  the Americrii ships at Key West  started south to blockade Cuba. On  the 23rd tie President called out  125,000 volunteers for two years' service, and on the 25th sent a message  .o Congress declaring that a state of  var existed between Spain and the  United States since April 21. All  aeutral powers took notice of this including Grcr.t Britain, which knew  hat Ccmmouore Dewey, in command  if the American squadron in the  Pacific, had been for some weeks in  the British harbor of Hong Kong,  where he wns permitted to remain  pending a formal declaration of war.  On the same clay (April 26) the Gov-  srr-or of Kong Kc.v.g notif.ed Dewey  ���������ko leave the harbor, and he proceeded  to Manilla Bap where he destroyed  the Spanisji sjjy   ojU.May; L  gS������:  Enjoy Life During  by buying one of our screen doors  and a window or two.

M. Glacobinl, of the  Paris . Observatory, who has made a  special, study of Jupiter, has described  .a red spot which possesses a relative  fixity, but within -the last year its  mobility has increased in great proportion, and Its longitude by about 30  degrees.
