He immediately went down and marie an  investigation but the most he could  learn was that he had been seen by a  number of people and^ had walked  deliberately into a slough over his  waist in water. They could not give  any description of him or even fell  what color his clothing was and after  a night spent in the neighborhood and  an early morning serach, tbe mystery  was xto nearer solution so he had to  return disappointed.  Saturday evening late, word was  brought tbat the man had reappeared  and was in the post office at Duck  Greek.  Constable -Forrester hastily summoned Dick Bevan and together they  rushed to Duck Creek. There they  found a man worn and week having  evipentiy been without food, for some  time. He gave his name .as Chris Peterson and said he came from Nelson  but could not tell how long he had been  and  master  its   contents*.

CConUp'iedi  Iris picked up the pen again and  dipping it in the ink commenced to  write arttmn^tically. The expression  on her face v. as fixed, sh������ looked like  one hypnotised.  Dear Fred,���������I promise to marry you  on the twenty-fifth inst., if, on or before that day, the enquiry on the  death of Mrs. Francks is completed  and her. husband is entirely exonerated  from all blame.  She signed the letter,* and handed it  to Scribner without a word. Then rising she rang the bell, walked unsteadily across the hall and opened the ball  door herself.  Go!  He picked up his hat and coat. Perhaps one day you will be grateful, he  'mumbled as he reached her aide.  She laughed.  It was quite dark oatside now, the  last rays of daylight had faded. Scribner looked up at the sky; the moon  was rising above the trees of the  park.  I am going straight to The Towers  to tell my au x'. the good news. Early  in the morning 1 shall be ln town  again. I daresay within twenty-four  hours any fears you may have about  Mr. Francks will be set at rest. The  'first thing I shall do will be to put  Heriot in communication with the woman. I referred to; the second to obtain a special licence.  He waited a moment and looked at  her, but she stood ghost-like against  the STeat oak door, silent, motionless.  And Fred Scribner passed out into the  night, and a few minutes later she  heard the throbbing of his motor-  . He  drove  it  at top  spee *   to  The  Towers regardless of danger to him-  Doubtless you feel s bit sore. Soot-  land Yard hates to be found blundering, eh?  We don't ofteS*- blunder, the detective said quietly. And, remember,  ".he coroner'B Jury haven't given their  verdict yet.  Heriot had not come alone to Scribner's rooms. A plain clothes officer  had been Instructed to wait im the  street below, and when the woman,  Fay Bulleen by name, left the building, he followed her.  But Mr. Heriot walked to the Savoy  Hotel and asked permission to be left  alone in a certain room on tihe second  floor for a few minutes. ���������      ,  He stood"at the window and looked i  down at the Embankment gardens.  They were deserted now, only'ft few  sparrows twittered dismally on tho  leafless trees. The seats were empty.  But before leaving, he asked Velnhardt that a couple of servants might  be left in the room, and ho placed  them in position.  Then he went down to the embankment gardens and sat on one of the  iron seats and looked-up at the hotel.  From the Embankment the room was  on the third floor. It had a small  balcony which partly obstructed the  view, and with the windows wide open  ho could distinctly see one of the servants where ho had placed her by the  table not far from tho window. When  the lights were turned on he could  see tharn both, but directly they moved towards the door which led into the  corridor they were lost to sight.  Taking out his note-book he drew a  sketch of the gardens and part of the  hotel, made a few notes, and then  slowly  strode towards Westminster.  He was satisfied that the mystery  had been solved, but he was disatis-  fled "with himself. His reasoning  had all been wrong. And he remembered his original and primitive instincts���������the instinct which had come  to him on tlie morning when he made J  his way to the restaurant in Conduit  Street where Aaron Roberts lunched.  That instinct had told him that Jimmy  Francks was innocent of causing his  wife's death. Yet every scrap of evidence he had collected proved that he  was guilty.  If only the pieces of broken bottle  the tumblers had been left untouched,  until his arrival, the finger-print clue  | would have quickly set all doubts at  rest au_ helped Llm considerably. But  aunt's hous-e just as she was finishing j several hands had touch-vl both :;!ass  a late supper.

She -aid she saw them talk for r littfle  While, and t_.������n embrace.Y Ar ��������� little  later both Miss de Fontaigne and her  brother apparently left the roopi. Presently, -she noticed the man, Mr.  Francks, approach tho table, pick up  the tumbler, and cross the room," carrying li in his right hand. He walked  to the right, &__ disappeared from  sight.

In accord  with the settled customs of euch  places, ho was not promptly served.  To his expostulation lt was explained that the vichy was cold enough  without ice and th���������t soft-shelled  crabs take no tartar sauce in good  society.

Such  places do not call themselves palaces  without a sense of royal pride. They  are hot open for the gratification of  guests, but the edification of the Innkeeper and his help. Tho proprietor  is above a captain of Industry. The  chef is a high functionary. The head  waiter Is a haughty lord. The waiter iu ordinary is by no meuns a subordinate. ..The wayfaring man that  enters does so at ihe risk of something more than his digestion and  his private fortune.

At ten-thirty he wan interviewing Ht?r!ot in his rooms while they  waited for the woman who was to  solve the mystery of Ella Franck's  aeath.

It was indeed tho woman he had  seen pt.andi.ig on the Embankment  gardens when he had looked from tho  window of the room the Francks' occupied on the evening of tho tragedy.  And she recognized Heriot, or pretended to. The detective questioned  ber hrlpfly, apparently he was satisfied wllh hor answers.

He  felt inclined to try ai..*. discover that  reason, but reminded himself that it  was none of his business.  The first person Francks saw on his  return to London was Aaron Roberts.  The Jew described his interview with  Scribner. Francks listened but seemed ln no way surprised or disturbed.  He wants to make sure of hanging  me, that's all, he said. Anyway, he'll  save me the trouble of making a confession.  But supposing this woman says you  are not the person she saw pour the  poison into the glass���������what then?  She'll swear I'm .".e man right  enough���������I'm glad you love Miss de  Fontaigne, after all, Roberts, Francks  continued, for I shall go out feeling  perfectly assured that Scribner will  never possess her. I have left Mrs.  de Fontaigne practically my whole  fortune, in trust for the two children.  The moneylender nodded. You can  ,set your mi nil nt rest about Scribner.  I'd kill him before he hurts a hair of  Miss de Fontaigi--'s head._  Francks gave Aaron itoberts his  hand.  The twenty-fifth of the month arrived, and again the court-hoUBO at Westminster was full. Again a crowd filled the adjoining streets. Interest in  the case had been' re-doubled. Somehow the news had leaked out that new  developments wero expected.  Directly Uk proceedings opened, Inspector Herr_t announced that he  wished to cr.ll a no**-" witness, nnd  explained tho reasons why sho had  not boen summened to appear originally. Fay Bulleen was then put into  the witness-box and sworn.  She gavo her evidence haltingly, almost reluctantly. Her motives for  watching tlio window or tlio room tho  Francks' occupied at the hotel woro  mere curiosity. Sho deposed to seeing a man, whoso description she gavo,  pour somo liquid from a small phial or  bottle into a tumbler uud add :;oiuj  water. She was asked if sho could  seo t.ho man ln court, and cho identic,  ftcd Francks. Ho was disturbed by  tho entrance of a visitor, an undersized, deformed youth.

The  difficulty cf the one class is to reach i  buyers for the fruit and the other to '  find a supply at a moderate price.

When a boy, Mr. Fraissard was apprenticed to a marble-cutter, says the  London News. For 50 years he continued to execute the most beautiful  works of art; mostly in mosaics. It  ls claimed that every piece of work  he did was a masterpiece, and the two  rooms in which he lived contain a  wonderful collection of beautiful objects.

Eight years were  occuiied in the fashioning of this  piece of worlc.  M. Fraissard's masterpiece took him  nearly three times as long. It is a  black marble table. In the middle is  a ehessboard, on either side of which  are playing card- arranged as fans.  On the tabl6 are dominoes and dice,  cigars and cigarettes and several  coins in gold and silver. All these  are, of course, inlaid. The materials  in the table besides the black marble,  are agate, onyx, porphry, malchite and  lapis lazuli, the tones of which are  black, red, orange, blue and white.  Ninety different kinds of marble were  also used.  In the old man's lodgings there are  dozens of mosaics, opal cups, chandeliers and inkstands, inlaid in all sorts  of stones.

Went Right to It  ���������"- James Francis Dwyer, the Australian  novelist, tells the following story  about the Japanese. Dwyer began  as a reporter in Melbourne.  Japan sent a warship on Invitation  to Australia, said he. We were to  unvreil a monument in a park in -the  interior'of Melbourne. The Japanese  sailors were to grace the occasion.  Not one of the Japanese had ever  been on shore there before. When  the morning of the unveiling came  Melbourne sent a mounted escort to  show the visitors the way to the park.  'The escort wasn't needed.. At the  head of the brown column marched  an officer with his nose on a map, pinned to a bit of board. ,  He never looked up, said Dwyer.  Now and then he'd give an order In  Japanese, and the column would wheel  to the left or right. Kind friends  would wave their hands at the mounted escort, marching proudly up the  wrong street, and tell them they had  lost the city's guests.  Two or three times that performance was repeated. Then the mounted escort gave it up ln disgust. The  Japanese wont. Yo the park in the interior ot the city straight ns a pigeon  flies to a hole In the barn. Afterwards J3.wycr and other reporters  measured tho route and discovered  that tho Japanese, guided only by  their war map, had taken the shortest route to thoir destination through  a strango city.  Ideals  No matter what back we read, something within uo lifts us above that ?  book; we must press on. No masterpiece in any art is a measure or what  thero is in any one of us. We are  forever ..sking the pictures that have  never been painted. We see statues  unquarried, yet in the marble of Faros. Our ears listen for mutic that  h-S never reached'human Instruments*  Our eyes vaguely make out temples  that have never been built. In his  hands lie the books that have never  been written. . It is thus with human  spirit in the arts. It cannot long fold  its wings upon itB own masterpieces;  it rests there awhile, ther must fly  on. Thus all achievement is but a  small part of v.*hat man strives to  achieve;, and thus the old always  le -,ves the young something to do.  Minard's Llnlr lent Cures Colds, Eto.

Nutrition, which follows upon digestion, seems to slepend upon the thyr-  rrld gland, conspicuous in the human  throat as Adam's apple.

An extract  from such a gland series just as well.  A. singular fact is that thyroid glands  In healthy and mature animals contain more iodine than does any other  tissue; and the activity of a gland as  a remedy Is in proportion to the iodine  it contans. Why, nobody knows as  yet. But knowledge, thougb incomplete, may have great value as far as  it goes. In some parts of Europe, especially In Switzerland and Northern  Italy, tlie deformity known as cretinism, afflicts wide districts. * This and  allied diseases of imperfect nutrition  are accompanied by thyroid glands  either withered or undeveloped. In  such cases welcome relief follows upon the administration of thyroid extract; 'its particles seem to fly to the  places where they^find slmila* particles, much as iron filings speed to  the magnet swayed above them.   .  .Other, glands, in elaborate tests, are  proving to be equally helpful to physicians. Take, for example, those  borne immediately abov-* the kidney.  They yield a preparatiojucalled adrenalin. This powerfully closes the  smaller blood-vessels, so that it arrests bleeding, which unchecked,  might threaten death. Its uses are  golden, in many seveie surgical oper-r  ations.

Such  terror ������id these men exercise that carriers refused to face tho risk of the  road unless very highly paid, and the  prices commanded for t_e hire of their  services and vehicles rose to one hundred and fifty per cent. In excess of  the nominal figure.  The natural result was that far  smaller quantities of cereals were Obtainable than had been anticipated,  and t_o jocal prices rose i-o an a_nest  prohibitive scale���������from ?15 -to $20  per ton; failures were not Infrequent,  and the more substantial merchants  were in many cases only able to load  the vessels chartered to fulfil their  forward contracts at a serious loss.  Instead of the anticipated large increase In the exports of soya beans  during the year 1912, for the haulage  of which the Chinese Eastern Railway  had made elaborate preparations, tha  value of exports of ihis commodity  was actually only some 77 per cent  of the figures reached in 1011.  Prior to the end of 1912 the Chinese  took no steps to cope with the s<tate  of affairs; it is, however, satisfactory  to be able to report that at the time  of writing (April, 1913) efficient military measures of repression have been  carried out, and in the chief produping  centres within 100 miles- radius of  Harbin _rdei* and safety to life and  property br.ve been restored.

Gypsies are very numerous In England,  but it Is necessary to have a guide  if the visitors would like to see them  in their fa-orite    haunts.      Of    late  years, law, order and sanitary conditions have driven the Romanies into  secluded nooks and forest lingles.In  such places can be seen the oval roofed caravan, quite unlike the palatial  conveyance of would-be imitators or  show people.        Here    also    can   be  found the tents, which reminds one of  that vast throng of people, the Israelites, who lived the gipsy life and were  tent dwellers.     In the camp the elder  gjypsies can be heard, sneaking In .-*.  strange  tongue;,   for  the  real  gypsy  speaks the Romany language, and-the  parent's hearts are sad today because,  their offspring    prefer    speaking   In  E_glish.

Some people, have rather peculiar  ideas concerning gypsies. First of all  let me--say that all gypsies are not  dark. As I visit the various camps  during mission work I find hundreds  of fair gypsies. Originally the gypsies .were an eastern people but like  other people they have turned their  feet westward and climate with other  causes may have altered them con-  'slderably. My father war. a thorough gypsy, but quite fair. In the  old days intermarriages i with 'Gorgola  house dwellers, meant expulsion for  the offender from the tribe.  The Romany girl ls betrothed at tho  age of fourteen, but at least two years  must elapse ere marriage shall take  place.     This is not a lime of courtship, the  betrothed must treat each  other as ordinary   acquaintances   or  the  match Is broken off.   The marriage would usually take place ln ai  secluded forest    glen.   A long hazel  branch is brought, the pair stop over  the branch, and are  then acclaimed  'rawny' and 'rye,' which means man  and wife.     Superstition ilea deep In  the heart of tho gyps'ea, and by tho  stars they forecast many happenings.  When the head of the tribe dies tho  caravan, clothes, etc, aro burned and  tiho ashes scattered over the grave.  Whllo a building waa In process of  construction two of tho tillers became  engaged ln a violent quarrel. So violent was It that the police were called  ln and tho offenders taken before a  magistrate, Both of tho mon were  sober and Industrious and good workmen; thia. according to the toatlmony  of tho foreman In charge ot their worlc  who had followed in hopes of being  able to irit_rcede for thom.

Earl Spencer to the  rank of Garir*er Knight increases the  number of that august -body to thirty  though it was formeily Ifixed at twenty-five. Its numbers were increased  to meet the growln,-; demands. of  George Ill's family. The origin of this  most noble puissant order'Is not definitely known. Two theories hold  the field. In the one romance predominates, the other ia more prosaic. Giving romance pride of pU.ce, we hear  of a Countess of Salisbury and her  dropped garter, of its replace;;- ent by  our chivalrous King Edward III., and  of his opposite remark to allay the  jealous fears of hia suspicious consort.

New Method of    Learning    to    Read  Does Away With Alphabet  Most children know Instinctively  that there ia something wrong about  the uninteresting and stupid alphabet.  It doesn't seem reasonable to them,  and they hate it. Now, it seems  they are right.  Progressive educational studen'3  have hit upon a plan to teach children to read by the new and efficient  method of sound reading, which eliminates the necessity of learning the A.  B.C.'s.  This new method is recognized as  one of the most important discoveries  in modern educational systems and  bids fair soon to come into general  use.  The whole system of the English  languagajs based upon sound. Every  word spoken is made up of one or  more distinct sounds. No one speaks  a word without giving utterance to  some of these sounds. When we say  cat we do not name the three letters,  as c-a-t, but we give the sound of c  and at, blended together and get cat.  rTVV* f.   f.lr.llA   ���������*...   XX.

After learning the sounds of  the consonants the child takes up different families, as the at, the an, and  the ill families, and-builds words as  o-a.t '���������-at ni-a*- m-nn T-tm f-ill t���������ill  etc-, adding little by little until a large  vocabulary is acquired. This is the  foundation of the new method of  teaching known as the phonic method.  The first important thing for the  child to learn is reading, in jrder that  it may be able to gain information for  Itself. It is therefore of the greatest  importance that the child be taught  this as soon as possible.  With  the  time-wasting  alphabet,  a  child  was considered somewhat of a  prodigy that could master the letters  and   their    order    at the    age of flvo  years.

STORM  30 PER->TiTiON������Y  An Aerolite Fires a Village and Wipes  it Out of Existence  The recent terrific storms which  swept over Spain has yielded a large  crop of weird stories. Here is one  which has just been received.  The village of Alcooer, near Valencia, has been practically wiped out  and the surrounding country ravage-  by an aerolite of great size?  Shortly aitsr noon there dropped  from a cloudless sky a great ball of  Are. A deafening series of detonations like a thourand rifle shots resounded through the atmosphere, and  scattering tongues of flame in all directions, the heavy mass burled itself  in the earth.  The surrounding country was set  on fire.^and within an hour nothing  but blackened masses of smouldering  cinders remained of farmhouses, haylofts and gathered crops of hay, wheat  and olives.  ���������The whole population of Alcocer was  at the moment attending a requiem  service in the church, some two miles  distant. But for that circumstance  the loss of life would have been terrible. As it was five persons were  seriously burnt, one of them succumbing to his injuries the sam> evening.  At the moment the aerolite fell at  Alcocer a terrific thunderstorm, which  was accompanied by a rain of stones,  some tho size of < ranges imd weighing  nearly two pounds, burst over the  neighboring villages *. Beuavltes and  Ciiartil.  The ground waa covered In' places  t_ a depth of five Inches by those  stones. A pungent odor of sulphur  pervaded the locality for hours aftor  the phenomenon.  ft  VIM, KJ.ONEV.   BLADDER, DISEA  ULES.    KlTHF.il  No. DRUGGISTS or MM. I. SI.

It  was ������50. I loaned it to a neighbor at  7 per c&nt. interest. In a year the  money earned me $3.50. From that  time onward i determined to make  money work for me.  So writes John Davison Rockefeller  who began to mako a living almost as  soon as he could work. At 10 he  was earning 37 cents a day hoeing  a neighbor's potato fields. In 1853,  when he was 14, be left his Tio������*a  County, N.Y., birthplace-for cTevelancL  Thoro he got a j jb as office boy. Later he became a clerk; then cashier and  bookkeeper for a mercantile house. He  and two friends managed tj borrow  enough money to take hold of a petroleum refinery. Rockfel.er saw wonderful possibilities in oil and he reached  out for one refinery after, another, tm-  tU in 1861 he was able to organize  the Standard Oil Oo. Six years later  the Standard Oil Trust waa formed  and Rockefeller was on the way to fabulous fortune. He had a genius for  borrowing. Indeed, his start was  made on borrowed capital plus genius.  He is said to have beexi worth less  than $1,000 ia his own right when he  was 30. But the borrowed money  worked for him until there was no  further need to borrow.  _������Nj_-*  NITE-OCLUB  &������}������7  ^^HAT do you pay for in ehot-  vv shells? .

By the phonic method the child is  | taught to recognize the word and its  I name as a whole.      For instance, the  j word dog is recognized, taken in and  j absorbed hy the child a3 one thing in  its  entirety,   instead of  learning the  three distinct characters of which the  word is composed.     It is just as. easy  for the child to do this as to resort to  the old. cumbersome method of picking out the three separate characters.  Many who are teaching reading by  the old ABC method think that is  the best possible way, but the Modern  Progress League has shown by actual  practice that under the new plan children can be taught to read quite intelligently  without  knowing  a  singlo  letter by name.  One of the advocates of this system  was questioned as to whether this  phonic reading would not tend to  make the child a poor speller. He  said: I do not believe the new method makes poor spellers. But I do  think the old system of striking out  the silent letters In words did affect  the spelling. On the whole, I think  children read and spell much better  and in a much shorted time when  taught by the phonic system.  __________      a "���������**���������  Thoac  Pleasant Suffragettes  Jpiniie, h.ivc    you    despatched  hoinh?  .-.. clear.

He told  the purser to take down a list of the  articles in. the box from the owner,  with their values, so that in ease the  box were lost tho amount of claim  would be limited. But he did not  want to have this done' before getting  rid of the box. Be directed one of the  ers*?? xo carry is to tbe uppe& deck-  where the lifeboats were swung on  tbe davits, and put it in one of the  lockers intended for provisions, wedging it so tbat it would not slide about  with the motion of ths waves. This  was done. The boat was lowered? a  cable attached to her bow, and she  was suffered to drift a hundred yards  astern.  While this was b<-ng done the eap-  tatn gave orders tbat what was in  tbe boat, or rather what was supposed  to be in the boat, be conSned to those  Who were in the baggage room when  the matter was discussed. He did not  consider that a bomb a hundred yards  - away from the ship could endanger  ber.  The Tartaric sighted Fire island on  the'fourth day out. She was twelve  knots east of Montauk point just before  da?light on the morning of the fifth  day. A man stood on the after deck of  the ship, where the cable that towed  the lifeboat was attached. He tied  loosely to the rope a pair of oars, which  drifted back to the lifeboat Then he  fixed to the rope a clutch with handles  like those of a pair ot tinner's shears.  Grasping the handles, be swung himself off the stern and let himself down  slowly till he reached the water. The  pressure against him exerted by the  headway of the ship* was so great that  he would not have been able to maintain his hold had it not been for this  clutch. By its use he let himself be  slowly forced backward till he reached  the lifeboat and pulled himself up by  the cable on to its bow. .  " Once In the boat he cast an eye. to  the westward, where shone" a light,  which he recognized as one on Montauk point. Taking from the bow the  oars he bad sent before him, he put  them in the boat. Then he cast off  and was left astern. As the dark body  of the Tartaric grew darker in the distance he 5 mi led and raised his hat to  "her.-*  "Goodby, my friends," he said. "I  think I can now get on without your  valuable assistance."  Taking the box from the locker in  which it had been placed, he ripped It  open with a screwdriver be drew from  his pocket, took out a clock, which he  threw overboard, and a small package,  which he concealed in a pocket of his  flannel shirt. Then, beginning to shiver  with tho cold, he took up the oars and  pulled for tbe light on Montauk point  By this tlmo a streak of gray light  appeared ln the east end, in due time  lhe sun came up, but the man in the  boat did not need its warmth to dry  Ms clothes, for the heat of his body,  kept up by the exercise of rowing, had  already done that.

Once on terra firms, leaving bin boat  hauled up on a bench,..ho started inland till ho camo to a town, where ho  hired a horse and buggy to carry him  to tho northern coast of tho Island.  Thero ho chartered a motorboat to  take him across the sound to Sftybrook,  where ho boarded a Long Islund east-  bound train for Boston. Arriving  there ln tho afternoon, ho purchnscd  clothing and, dropping Into n diamond  dealer's, took from his pocket tho pack-  ngo ho had taken from tlio box supposed to contain tho Infernal machine,  unrolled It nnd displayed a dozen enormous diamonds.

Kongo   Gluttons  Who   Do   Little   Else  Than Sleep and Eat.  According to M.

They do little besides sleep and eat  They are too lazy to do any individual  hunting, and it is the disliked and unpopular member of the family that is  ���������forced to do the food providing for the  relatives. The women are quite as lazy  as the men and work only when it is  absolutely necessary to eat  The only time when the native*-}  rouse themselves is at marriage or at  death. Both of these occasions are celebrated by eating more than on ordinary occasions even, and the after effects of both events are often disastrous, as one or two of the party are  sure to eat so much as to be seriously  and often fatally sick, which only  means another celebration of a different kind.' ?

But we were talking at large the other  day, and a man quoted the line, "A  rose red city half as old as time." And  then came the question, Who wrots  that line that everybody knows?

It was hopeless to think of  combining -the western Morse dots and  flashes in sufficient variety to express  tbe 3,000 or 4,000 characters used by  a fairly literate Chinese, not to speak  of tha entire 40,000 or so known to the  highly educated men of that race. A  phonetic system was barred by the  fact that the same Chinese monosyllable means different things, according  to the context or intonation and also  by the diversity of dialects. A Dane,  Professor Scbellerup, found the solution. Tbe 7,000 characters most commonly used are given their equivalents  ,ln a code bf numerals and these numerals are telegraphed. Thus, "cash"  In the code Is 6,030.

For three or  four days beforo a series of. earth-  quakes at Guadalajara, Mexico, tha  many parrots of the city showed,  great and unusual restlessness, and  during tbe period of disturbance the  increased cries of the birds jgave warning of the nearness of the worst shocks.  Bats also became alarmed, fleeing  from the city before the earthquakes  came. Supersensitlveness to faint  shocks hardly give satisfactory explanation, for modern seismographs aro  very sensitive, and it ls quite unlikely  that tremors too slight to be recorded  would be felt so strongly as to givo  alarm.  the most original and new.
