The Universal Gifts.
An old farmer was talking of his
boyhood to a group of young people;
aot long ago. It had been lived—that
tar-away boyhood—early in the last
century, in a country place remote
from towns. He described its meager
conditions—the houses, fn which such
things as “conveniences" had never
been dreamed of, the coarse food and
poor clothing, the scanty schooling,
the few holidays; no magazines, al
most no books, no entertainments or
sports except an occasional sleighing
party; no “junketings," no celebra
tion of Christmas or New Year, no
vacations from work. “Nothing that
you young folks have to-day," he fin
ished, “except weather and other
folks; but I tell ye,” a flash kindled
in the faded eye, and the fine old head
lifted proudly, “I tell ye, folks cared
jest as much for life in those days as
they do now.” “Weather and other
folks” and the opportunity of living—
the great universal gifts to all man
kind through all the ages. They stand
like mighty mountain peaks, steadfast
and unchangeable among all the
changing philosophies, civilizations,
powers. Sorrows come often, and
sickness and defeat; there are lives
eaten by poverty and dwarfed by con
straining circumstance, yet, says the
Youth's Companion, to every life these
three things are given—the joy of sun
shine and blue skies, the cheer and
comradeship and inspiration of other
lives pressing upon his, the opportu
nity to hope and dream and do bat-'
tie, to learn daily more of himself and
his fellow man and God. All over
the country are eager young people
looking for “chances” to do, to learn
and be. This is as it should be if
only the longing means watchfulness,
not discontent. “Chances” come only
to open doors. Rut while he is wait
ing let every eager soul remember
that the three great gifts are his al
ready to use or to neglect—Nature
and "folks" and the privilege of living.
The American “Drummer.”
A United States consul sends to the
state department a bit of advice for
American business houses that intend
seeking trade in Spanish-American
countries. “Cheap traveling sales
men who can pick up orders in a
brisk and breezy fashion,” he de
clares. will not be able to do much
business there. Salesmen of culture
and education, with polished manners
and a knowledge of the languages and
customs of the people among whom
they go, he believes to be essential.
The consul’s intentions are good,
and it is easy to see the point he
seeks to make. American business
houses would doubtless do well to
remember his words of caution. But
he has a wrong conception of the
American traveling salesman. The
type he has in mind figures more
largely on the stage and in the books
of fiction than on the road. The roy
stering, flashy “spellbinding” drum
mer has practically disappeared. The
knights of the grip, while they may
not be composite Lord Chesterfields
and J. Pierpont Morgans, are quiet,
level-headed, capable men of business.
They seek, says the Cleveland Leader,
to obtain and hold trade by a thorough
knowledge of the branch of it they are
in and by deserving the confidence of
the men they deal with. The com
mercial traveler of to-day does not re
sort to tricks. He transacts business
on a business basis, and succeeds on
his merits. Such accomplished gen
tlemen as are described by the consul
would doubtless have an immense ad
vantage Over their less gifted brethren
in Latin-America, but the supply of
them is bound to be limited. It is a
safe prediction that the plain, ordi
nary American traveling men will get
their full share of the business in
Mexico and Central and South Amer
No convict has been guillotined in
Paris for ten years, and the sentences
of those condemned to death have
been commuted to imprisonment for
life. The reason for this lies in the
fact that the law provides that all
capital executions shall be held in
public, and since the guillotine was
removed from the Place de la Ro
quette ten years ago, no other place
has been found for it. The residents
in the neighborhood of every place
suggested object to its erection near
them. The authorities were lately put
in a quandary when a condemned man
refused to ask for a commutation oi
his sentence, and declared that they
must put him to death.
A New Hampshire “hunter,” seeing
a dark object stirring in some bushes
blazed away and shot a farmer dead.
The authorities did not arrest the
homicide, accepting his statement that
the killing was “purely accidental.”
The law ought to carry a penalty fo«*
such heedlessness.
Japan may keep the door open in
Manchuria, but there is good reason
to believe that the Tokio authorities
help their own people through it and
make them much at home when they
get inside.

Pretty Women Lure Thous

Actor-Butler the Cause of
Their Fall.
New York,—If Robert Emmet

court of love operated by Mrs. Izella
Brown and Mrs. George T. Verrault,
ha.d not used bad judgment and let
James V. MacClellan, the obscure
Philadelphia grocer, into the West
Seventy-third street mansion, all the
fuss about the love syndicate might
have beeu avoided. It was Keene
who used to determine which of the
eager applicants for love honor should
come in. When he passed favorably
upon MacClellan he let in the man
who, when ruthlessly rejected by the
charming Mrs. Verrault, promptly
went to the United States district
The extent to which the love syn
dicate operated has amazed the dis
trict attorney. It is calculated that
in the three years during which the
combine ensnared its victims more
than $100,000 was taken from them.
A census of the dupes shows that
they range from prosperous store
owners to millionaire Wall street
financiers. Probably one hundred of
them walked into the spider web.
Four women figured in the active
work of the love trust. Mrs. Brown,
shrewd and fascinating, was the
schemer who kept the syndicate afloat.
Mrs. Verrault was the official letter
writer. It was she who sent the cap
tivating love missives that won the
hearts of the susceptible dupes. She
attended to the correspondence of
both herself and Mrs. Brown.
Daughter and Niece
as Side Attractions.
The golden-haired daughter of Mrs.
Brown was a conspicuous member of
the combination. She did not make
love to any of the men nor receive
their attentions, but it was handy to
have her around as milady's maid.
The same interesting role was as
sumed by Mrs. Brown’s beautiful
niece, Miss Mary Mason. To the
credit of Mrs. Brown, it may be said
that she watched these two damsels
with the eye of a hawk and never
permitted the slightest indiscretion so
far as they were concerned. The two
girls when not engaged in the palace
of love had the time of their lives in
going about the country with Mrs.
The niece is the daughter of a i
struggling Boston storekeeper. He al- !
ways held a high regard for his sis
ter, and feeling that she could pro
vide his daughter with better advan- j
tages than he was able to afford sent 1
her to New York. Mrs. Brown's
scheme to marry the girl to a New
Yorker of wealth was given a rude
shock when the girl eloped with a 1
man she really loved. She met her
husband while attending a regimental
ball to which Mrs. Brown had taken
Gregory Allen, who was one of the
butlers in the Brown-Verrault house
hold, knew- this young man and intro
duced him to the blue-eyed beauty, i
It w-as love at first sight. Three '
months from the day of the meeting
Miss Mason broke away from the in- J
fluence of the love combine. Gregory
Allen had been very much smitten ;
with Miss Mason himself. When she
jilted him he got bravely over it and
fell in love with Mrs. Brown’s daugh- !
ter Lillian. It is said they are en
gaged to be married.
Dashing Leading Spirit
of the Love Trust.
Mrs. Brown, the guiding spirit of
the love enterprise, is forty-two years
old and has had a kaleidoscopic ca
reer. Her deep hazel eyes have a
bewitching and dangerous softness.
She has a subtle grace and dignity.
Her hair is of the blazing peroxide
variety. Tall and with a strikingly
symmetrical figure, she is a woman
who would immediately attract atten
tion. There is a shrewd cast in her
countenance, but it is tempered by
the melting languor of her eyes.
It is easy to see from an observa
tion of Mrs. Brown how she was able
to hold men in her clutches. She is
a woman of keen wit, a brisk con
versationalist and one quick to take
advantage of every slight opportunity.
With her suitors she has been by
turns affectionate, adoring, gracious
and stern. She has a heart of steel,
but her admirers never suspected it
until they were violently jilted.
Mrs. Verrault is a woman of a
softer type. Her deep dark eyes, rosy
complexion and beautifully moulded
face give her an atmosphere of daz
zling charm. She is scarcely past
thirty, yet she has broken hearts ga
lore. Her chestnut-brown tresses con

You may have an idea
that you're cunning when
you stay single, and you
may think your influence
is making a splash, but
you take it from me that
the single man ain’t any
heavier than a piece of
ice trust goods on a
front door step on an
August day.
It’s the women who give us character bo’s our men friends ain’t afraid
to speak out in the open about us if they want to hand us a little hot air,
and it’s the women who give us the characters that make men tell lies after
being seen talking to us.
Women make us hustle because we know if we haven’t got the price
we 11 get talked about, and if they think we’re lazy they’ll talk about your
wife and say: “Poor thing, she has to do all the work.”
Women make us see how little we count in the game if we don’t do
all the things that women think men should do in the day’s work.
Women say a lot of things they don’t mean, because talk is about the
only pastime the most of them have, but when a woman is boosting for
your success she tells the truth, and that’s why so many fellows say women
ain’t got any sense because they tell the truth.
Women make you want to get out in the morning and get into action
because you don’t want to be shy when it comes to settling day, and they
make you want to get in at night because most of ’em will do more to make
you comfortable than any one else, and the fellow who don’t like to be
comfortable has something wrong in him.
Since I have been married I have seen some wives that I thought a
hard slap on the wrist would do a lot of good to, but no one ever wants to
take on the job of doing it, because other women would say you’re a brute.
I’ve had fellows tell me they couldn’t get along with their wives if
they didn’t hand them a slap once in awhile, but I’d rather pay alimony
than do that, and I guess, if the truth was known, there’s few of us men
that don’t need a good slap once in awhile ourselves, because it’s so easy
to get sassy in your own house.
I ain’t trying to make rules for married people to live by, and I ain’t
trying to be wise about it, because every day I get into the fact that I know
less about it.
Many folks are unhappy married, and they can’t see why anybody should
be a tout for the game, but, so far as I am concerned, it’s the whole pantry
with all the grocery bills paid, and I’m saying that if all the people could
be as happy as me and Mrs. Stitch is, the world would be a continuous
“laugh-fest,” and so many people that try it make a hit of it that I say for
one, Get married, for single life is H—L, and here’s to Mrs. Stitch. God
bless her!
tribute to her bewitching beauty. In
manner she is the opposite of Mrs.
Brown. She is at once impulsive,
sunning and lovable. It Is said that
Mrs. Verrault actually fell in love
with a few of her admirers, but she
held herself in check because to love
was not one of the principles of the
extraordinary matrimonial syndicate.
All her witcheries and graceful tricks
of manner and speech were put forth
to lead her victims on to their doom.
Youths Helped Along
the Game of Cupid.
The youths who helped along the
tricks of the love trust were scarcely
out of their teens. Robert Emmet
Keene, who for some time played
small parts in Proctor’s stock com
pany, was the oldest of the croup.
He was quick to see the opportunity
offered by the matrimonial enterprise
when first he was introduced into the
household. Promptly giving up his
stage career, he entered into the af
fairs of the syndicate with all the
fervor of his ardent spirit.
In his position as butler many a
generous tip came Keene's way. The
enraptured suitors of Mrs. Brown and
Mrs. Verrault regarded him as the
court jester. Gregory Allen, who was
an amateur sculptor, became asso
their guests. Each of the women
would have three men a week calling
upon them. If Mrs. Brown had a
suiter who seemed to be particularly
recalcitrant about buying extravagant
presents. Mrs. Verrault, who was al
ways able to corral the most obstrep
erous( caller, would be called in to
use her persuasive influence.
Mrs. Verrault used to go out often
er than Mrs. Brown with the infat
uated lovers. She would always wear
a heavy veil and would tell her spell
bound admirer that she did it to keep
her wicked brothers from seeing her.
These relatives, she said, were always
trying to make trouble for her. They
were scheming to get part of th^ es
tate left her by the rich husband she
said had died. Often when out with
one suitor dining at a fashionable
cafe she would be startled to find
another sweetheart sitting idly at a
nearby table. She would then hurry
the dinner through on pretense of
feeling faint and would hasten home
with her escort.
Ingenuity Exercised in
Receiving the Infatuated.
Both “widows” had to exercise some
ingenuity in receiving the society
women whom they had on their string.
These members of the “400” they

ciated with the matrimonial trick
sters through his acquaintance with
George T. Verrault, husband of the
pretty brunette. He donned a uni
form and helped Keene in his job
as butler. Mrs. Brown’s four broth
ers helped in many ways to keep the
syndicate going.
George Mason was one of the pro
moters of the famous Kentucky Fuel
and Alcohol company, which was one
of the side issues of the syndicate.
He made his father-in-law, William
D. Angeil, of Chicago, vice president
of the concern without asking the
old gentleman’s consent. When the
skyrocket company exploded, leaving
a large number of financiers holding
bogus stock, Angeil felt like troucing
his son-in-law, but never could find
This chimerical concern procured
its victims by advertising in newspa
pers and also through the means of
the spiritualistic seances that were a
part of the matrimonial plans.
Matrimonial Mansion Was
Elaborately Fitted Out.
The matrimonial mansion was fitted
out in a way calculated to inspire the
dupes. Each room has a name ac
cording to the kind of paper on the
wall. The parlor was the green room,
because it had green paper with lit
tle splashes of pink. The library was
furnished in red. All the books were
of red. The library cost Mrs. Brown
Mrs. Brown had a red room on the
third floor which harmonized with her
blond hair. Mrs. Verrault's boudoir
was of a delicate pink.
Mrs. Verrault and Mrs. Brown were
always very careful about receiving

tisements, and used thepi as a means
of getting unlimited credit for expen
sive dresses. They had to arrange
it so that these fashionables would call
In the afternoon, for at night the par
lors were given up to the explicit
use of the love victims.
There were many exciting scenes
at the front doors of the establish
ment run by the syndicate on West
Seventy-third street and later at No.
323 West Eighty-second street. Dis
appointed lovers who had handed over
to the syndicate much of their money
used to storm on the front stoop and
threaten to dynamite the mansion if
their lady love would not see them.
Roebrt Emmet Keene was quite diplo
matic in handling these excited in
dividuals and managed to save the
house of love from an explosion.
The parlor in which the lovelorn
admirers were received had a mas
sive mantel adorned with gold orna
ments. Upon it would be placed pho
tographs of the callers, particular care
being taken that the right picture was
in the right place for the occasion.
Count Zolinoff, the Fifth avenue deli
catassen dealer, had his photograph
taken in 57 different styles and would
insist that Mrs. Verrault, whom he
was courting, should have them all in
plain evidence around the room.
“Don't you think I take a good pic
ture?” he would ask.
“You’re the sweetest thing in the
world,” Mrs. Verrault would reply.
Then she would get the promise of
another expensive present.
The old man who caused Mrs. Ver
rault the most annoyance by the per
sistency of his infatuation was Kiesler.
How Dan Cupid Helped in
One of the Most Startling
Swindles of the Time
Many Influential Men Are
Numbered Among the Un
happy Victims.
He would not hesitate to make love
anywhere. He showered kisses as
well as presents upon Mrs. Verrault.
When dining out he could not restrain
himself in falling upon his knees at
her feet and kising her hand. He
would write the most cushing love let
ters of all the group of infatuated
"I find myself speaking your name
when I awake," he would write, and
then go into raptures over her beauty.
The burning love missives were a
source of much merriment at the daily
cabinet sessions of the love troupe.
Actor Keene would read them with
the greatest gusto and accentuate the
most tender passages. Keen said the
letters could be made into a thrilling
love drama, and he had a good mind
to do it himself.
The Wall street broker, F. J. Syme,
whose name was used in connection
with the fuel scheme, was an unwill
ing victim, it is said, of the syndicate.
He fell in with the fuel idea, believing
that the company had acres of fertile
land in Kentucky. He called at the
love palace many times to get point
ers about fuel. It is said that the
broker invested considerable money
in the scheme.
Mrs. Verrault Had
a Real Love Affair.
Among the real love affairs that
Mrs. Verrault was interested in was
one with a Boston lawyer. She was
greatly attached to him. One day
after he had failed to call around and
see her at her Boston home she went
to his office and created a scene. The
lawyer ordered her out. The next day
Mrs. Verrault was taken to a hospital.
Her nerves were all unstrung and it
was alleged she had taken bichloride
of mercury in an effort to end her
McClellan, the Philadelphian, has
been quite upset because of the fuss
he has caused in having his erstwhile
sweetheart arrested. The next day
after Mrs. Verrault appeared in court
MacClellah came to town and tele
phoned to the West Eighty-second
street mansion. He got Mrs. Brown
on the ’phone and told her he was
sorry he had caused all the trouble.
If Mrs. Verault would return the pres
ents he had lavished upon her he
would withdraw the charge.
“Go on, you fool!” was the snappy
reply. “M:s. Verault doesn't care
what you do.”
MacClellan, the picture of despair,
hung about the house seeking a
chance to speak to his lady love, but
when Mrs. Verrault emerged from the
mansion she swept by him as though
he didn't exist.
The Philadelphia Lover
Kicked Over the Traces
The wail of all the overthrown suit
ors has been that they lost so much
money. It is this very thing that
has given Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Ver
rault such keen delight. In one of her
merry moods Mrs. Verault said:
“What a fine spectacle this is, all
these men having me arrested because
I was too sharp for them! They are
fortune-hunters, and of a very low
type. They are like the foreign no
blemen who come over here to win
rich American girls, but they go it on
a cheap scale. They think the Ameri
can women soft, and all they have to
do is to look wall-eyed at them and
they will break their necks to hand
them money. They only called be
cause they w'anted to get homes where
they wouldn’t have to work. I really
think that I have done a service to
American women in showing these
brutes up.
Pay Premiums Promptly.
Those who carry life insurance pol
icies should be careful to see that the
premiums are promptly paid. Neglect
in this important matter has caused
policies to be forfeited. It is best
to pay premiums a few days before
they are due. On the final day the pol
icy holder may forget it or be called
away, as many things can happen to
cause neglect of payment.
Sacred Fires of India.
The sacred fires of India have not
all been extinguished. The most an
cient which still exists was conse
crated 12 centuries ago, In commem
oration of the voyage made by the
Parsees when they emigrated from
Persia to India. The fire is fed five
times every 24 hours with sandalwood
and other fragrant material, combined
with very dry fuel.
How to Acquire the Proper Slope and
Plumpness and How to Dress the
Different Shapes with
Best Effect.
Just one woman in 20 has a pair of
shoulders the right shape. These sta
tistics are gathered from a certain
beauty specialist. The other 19 have
shoulders that are either too high or
too low. Many have round shoulders.
Others have hoop shoulders. One out
of three will have shoulders that ex
tend too far forward. Fifty per cent,
have shoulders of unequal height.
Twenty-five per cent, have shoulders
that would be right if they were tar
ried right. And this list of defects
might be carried on indefinitely, so
numerous are the faults of those who
might have and should have a good
pair of shoulders.
If the shoulders are thin there is a
diet which will plump them out a lit
tle. To try this diet means very little
self denial for it consists of food which
nearly everybody likes. The basis is
chocolate, and the chocolate diet will,
in time, make not only the neck, but
the arms and shoulders and hands
There is, put away in an obscure but
picturesque part of Germany, a little
“cure” which is called the chocolate
cure. Here the patients go to get
stout. They study the scenery, drink
chocolate and cocoa, eat it and grow
just fat enough.
The beauty of the chocolate “cure”
is that the fat settles in the right
place. It does not stop at the abdo
men. But it settles, rather, in the
arms, the hands, the neck and the
shoulders. In a very little while the
patients become beautiful.
The cereals will plump out the neck,
but one must not take too much
cream with them. Vegetables also
plump the neck, but one must be care
ful to take them fresh and without
too much butter. There are fats which
seem to settle in the abdomen and
other fats which go toward the shoul-;
ders and hands. It is curious to the!
student of beauty to observe the dif-j
ferent direction which the flesh will;
take. One kind of food, namely pota-!
toes, will make the abdomen full. An-;
•other kind of food will make the shoul-j
ders stout, while a third kind will/
cause the cheeks to grow fat. It is'
a knowledge of these various kinds of'
food which makes a woman pretty or
otherwise. She can really govern her]
fat to suit herself if she knows what/
to eat. i
it tne snouiuers are or tne sloping
or old-fashioned type they should be'
dressed very plainly. A Quaker hand-i
kerchief folded around the shoulders
in such a manner as to make them
still lower and still more sloping is the
prettiest thing in the work. Next
comes the Priscilla scarf, which is a
sort of plain muslin fichu; and third,
there is the plain round low neck, with,
its neat finish and its delicate edge.
All of these serve to bring out the old-J
fashioned lowness of the old-fashioned
low sloping shoulder.
The shoulder of the matron which is
the plump, round shoulder, is the
shoulder that can be dressed showily.
It can be wrapped with furs and
dressed with velvets. It can be en
circled with real lace and it can be
looped and twined with jewels. This
shoulder is massaged until it is very
plump; bleached until it is very white;
pinched until it is full of life, and
spatted until it is smooth.
The girlish shoulder, which is the
slender, delicate shoulder, is prettiest
dressed in something fluffy. Tulle,
gauze, chiffon and silvered stuffs are
loveliest. And the shoulder should be
dressed very low so as to show its
delicate curves.
If the shoulders, in spite of every
art persist in being uneven and ugly
there are exercises that can be taken
for them. One of these is the weight
exercise. The victims walks up and
down for 15 minutes a day carrying a
weight in her short arm—the arm
with the high shoulder. In time this
will lower the shoulder. If both shoul
ders are high she bends backward un
til they are equal.
The snouiaer exercise, me snouiaer
diet, the shoulder massage and the
shoulder treatment will, in time, make
any pair of shoulders handsome. And
in a short while the worst pair of arms
and neck will become beautiful. It
takes about four weeks of constant
care. But at the end of that time the
results will be so good that the patient
will not regret the time she spent
upon the work of reforming her shape.

Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills, a remedy
which has been before the American peo
ple for a generation, is still accomplish
ing wonderful results as is evidenced by
the following interview with Mrs. Ra
chael Gardner, of Wilsey, Kaiis.
“It was very strange,” she says, “I
never could tell what caused it and
neither could anybody else. For a long
time I had bad spells with my stomach.
The pain would commence about my
heart and was so deadly agonizing tliitt I
would have to scream aloud. Sometimes
it would last several hours and I would
have to take laudanum to stop it. Be
sides this I had a headache almost con
stantly, day and night, that nearly crazed
me, so you see I suffered a great deal.
And when I think of tho agony I en
dured it still makes me shudder.
“ ‘Doctors,’ did you say? Their medi
cine made me sicker. I couldn’t take t.
and I kept growing worse until a friend
advised me to take Dr. Williams’ Pink
Pills, and I did. I began to feel better
and was soon wholly converted to this
wonderful medicine. It did me more
good than I had ever hoped for. I kept
on with the pills and now I recommend
them to all who suffer.”
