A VITAL CLEW.
“My life hangs on that scrap of paper!
If it cannot be found, Edith, it is imfxjs
sible to prove my innocence. The facts
are dead against me.”
“Gilbert, I am so confident that ybu
are innocent and all that yon have said
is true that I will not rest until the pa
per is found.”
He took her in his arms and impressed
a passionate kiss on her brow.
Gilbert Stanton was under arrest on
suspicion of having caused the death of
Raymond Wild. The facts of the case
were, as he said, “dead against him.”
Stanton lived in chambers in White’s
inn and was reading for the bar. Wild,
who justified his name, was an old col
lege acquaintance, who had attempted
several things in life and failed in all.
Gilbert had not seen him for several
years, when Wild suddenly turned up
at his chambers and announced that he
was “stone broke.”
The man had no claim whatever on
Gilbert Stanton, who told him so and
also gave him the benefit of some candid
opinions as to his past career. Raymond
Wild was hot blooded, and high words
resulted. The quarrel was at its height
when Mrs. Morton, Gilbert’s old laun
dress, who had been completing her
morning duties in another room, closed
the door of the chambers and passed out.
Shortly afterward the tempers of the
two men cooled. Wild apologized for
some offensive remarks he had made, and
they shook hands. Gilbert now prom
ised to do his best to help his old ac
quaintance and invited Wild to remain
for an hour while he went out to keep
w lien uuoert atanton returned, ne
mounted the stairs to the door of his
chambers, but did not immediately enter.
He stood for a few minutes on the land
ing, considering what course he should
adopt with regard to the man inside.
Should he give him money? Or might
not that be doing such a person a posi
As he leaned against the door smoking
a cigarette he was startled by a loud ex
plosion inside. What could it be? He
hastily unlocked the door and went in.
The place was full of gunpowder smoke,
and he rushed into the sitting room. It
was empty. There was a door communi
cating with his bedroom, and he opened it.
A horrible sight was before him
Stretched upon the floor was Raymond
Wild—dead! Stanton immediately found
that a bullet had passed through the
man’s brain, and that his own revolver,
which he always kept loaded in the room,
was lying on the floor beside the body.
The evidence at the inquest was simply
this: The police, when called in, had
found the dead body of a man, identified
as Raymond Wild, with a bullet wound
in his head. A revolver was also dis
covered, which Gilbert Stanton had ad
mitted was his, and the contents of one
chamber had been discharged. Mr
Stanton had said: “The man committed
suicide. I was not inside the chambers
at the time.”
William Carey, a solicitor's clerk, de
posed that he was looking out of the
office window on the ground floor, when
he saw Mr. Gilbert Stanton enter tne
building and heard him run up the
stairs. About five minutes afterward—
certainly when ample time had elapsed
for Mr. Stanton to enter his chambers—
he heard the explosion.
The result was that Gilbert was ar
rested, brought up before the magistrate
and committed for trial.
His defense was that Wild had found
the revolver during his absence; that he
was standing outside the door of his
chambers, as we have described, when
the shot was fired; that although they
had quarreled they were on pacific term
when he went out, and that the deceased
had left a written confession of his own
guilt and Gilbert’s innocence.
But where was this written confes
sion? Gilbert Stanton declared that he
found it on the bedroom mantelpiece,
but during the excitement of the hour
had mysteriously lost or mislaid it. He
had searched everywhere for it, but with
tie distinctly remembered that, after
examining the body and finding it was
lifeless, he went into his sitting room
with the confession in his hand to con
sider what he should -do. He placed the
paper on a small table in front of him,
and glancing out of the window saw a
policeman in the quadrangle. He at
once decided to call the constable and
ran down stairs to do so, leaving his door
On his return the paper had disap
peared, and he had never seen it after
ward. The most diligent search had
failed to discover it.
“Now, Mrs. Morton,” said Edith as
they stood alone in the chambers, “this
is a matter of life and death. That piece
of paper must be found.”
“Yes, miss,” was the laundress’ com
“First of all, you must please answer
very carefully some questions I shall put
to you. Did you on that day destroy
“Have you destroyed or removed any
“Not a scrap, miss. You see there
ain’t no fires this time o’ the year, and
the little cooking I does is all done on
the gas stove.”
“What do you do with your waste
paper and rubbish?”
“What little there is I takes down in a
pail once a week, or more often if I finds
“And has the pail been down since
“Then the paper must be here some
where, unless it was deliberately stolen,
which I cannot believe. We will begin
our search, and take the sitting room
Everything was being turned upside
down and inside qut, when Edith sud
“Do you remember whether the win*
dows were open on that day?” she asked.
“Yes, miss; Mr. Stanton always used
to ’ave ’is winders open.”
“Well, just open them as they would
be If he were here.”
'the woman did as she was bid. Edith
then placed a piece of paper on the table
where Gilbert said he had laid the con
fession, the door leading into the bed
room and the entrance door having first
been opened. There was a considerable
draft, and the paper trembled on the ta
“Perhaps there was more air on that
day,” said Edith. “I will substitute a
lighter piece of paper.”
This she did and almost immediately
it was caught by a current, and it floated
across the room. As it fell on the floor
they were both startled to see a little
kitten spring from the open doorway
and pounce upon the paper, rolling over
and over with it in her teeth.
“That explains it all!” exclaimed Edith,
catching up the little animal in her
arms. “Oh, Kitty! Oh, Kitty? How
little you know the terrible mischief you
Her eyes were full of tears, and she
was pale and trembling with apprehen
sion. The kitten must have carried off
the confession in this way to play with,
and its recovery was hopeless.
“Lor, miss,” suddenly broke in Mrs.
Morton, “now I remember! When the
gent shot ’isself, 4 was working in the
’ouse opposite, and came back to see
what was the matter. That little kitten
belongs to the party in the next set, and
when 1 come up to the landing she was
a-playing just like that with a bit o’ pa
per, which she runs away with and leaves
on the stairs.”
“Yes,” said Edith, in breathless eager
“Well, paper about the stairs looks so
untidy, miss, so I picked it up and”
“What did you do with it?”
“I threw it in the pail with the other
1 or the second time the contents of the
pail were emptied by the laundress and
carefully examined. It was absolutely
certain that the paper was not there.
“Are you positive that you put the pa
per in the pail?” asked Edith.
“I’d take my ’davy on it, miss. And
it was just such a scrap of writing as
Edith sent the laundress home, shut
herself in the solitary chambers and be
gan the hunt afresh.
It was late in the evening when she
ceased her fruitless search.
Next morning she returned to her
hopeless task. Mrs. Morton she had re
lieved from further attendance, and was
walking up and down the chambers in
thought when there came a knock at the
door. It was the laundress herself.
“I know where that bit o’ paper is,
miss! I remembers that, when the police
was here that morning, I steps into the
bedroom to hear what they has to say
One of ’em says to me, impudentlike,
‘Well, what do you want, old lady?’ and
I says I wanted the bedroom candle
“Yes,” interrupted Edith, “but where
is the paper?”
“I’m just coming to that, miss. I stays
a bit in the kitchen—just to see if I might
be any use, you understands—and while
I was waiting, I puts a new candle in
the candlestick. Them ‘nines’ is rather
small for the candlestick, to I takes a bit
o’ paper out o’ the pail to make it fit.
Come into the bedroom, miss—why, it’s
“Good heavens!” cried Edith. "Do
you mean to say that the paper round
that candle was the missing document?”
“That’s my belief, miss. Where is it
“1 was here late last night, and 1
burned the candle very low—and the
paper took fire!”
“And you burned it, miss!”
“Only slightly, I remember. I blew
it out, threw the paper away, and put in
a new candle that I removed from the
piano. What did I do with the paper?
Oh, I remember, I threw it under the
grate. You’ll find it there. Thank
heaven, we have found it at last! Gil
bert is saved!”
"mere is nothing here, miss,” said the
woman on her knees. “The grate is
It was true, and the shock was a ter
rible one to Edith. She fainted in the
old laundress’ arms. Mrs. Morton, how
ever, soon restored her to consciousness.
“You can take my word for it,” she
said, “that paper’s bewitched.”
“I don’t care whether it is bewitched
or not,” said Edith. “I mean to find it.
Fetch me that magnifying glass from
the table in the next room.”
Edith removed the fender and care
fully examined the dust that Mrs. Mor
ton’s not overscrupulous cleanliness had
allowed to accumulate.
“I thought as much,” she said. “Mice!
They have been attracted by the candle
grease and have dragged the paper to
their hole. Every moment now is valu
able, or it will be all destroyed.”
They searched roundabout everywhere,
but no mouse hole could be found. Edith
then directed the woman to mix a quanti
ty of whiting which she placed in a large
flat dish on the floor in the middle of the
room. In the dish was laid a small saucer,
and in that a piece of toasted cheese. They
then left the chamber for several hours.
When they returned, there was a track
of little white footprints across the
room that led to a little hole above the
narrow skirting board, hidden by a loose
piece of the wall paper. A man was
called in, and after breaking down some
of the plaster and taking up a corner of
the flooring the coveted scrap of papeT
was at last secured.
The confession was of course in part
destroyed and required very delicate
handling, but when the precious relic
had been carefully mounted on another
piece of paper it was found to read as
follows, the words in brackets being
supplied by supposition:
[I am] sick of my life and (resolved] to put an
!nd [to It]. In case suspicion falls on Gi]lbert
Stanton, [he is] innocent. I die [by my] own
band. Raymond WiUd].

WHERE THE SKIRT AND THE BLOUSE
FALL AT OUTS.
The Superiority of Women—A Timely Sug
gestion to Parents—Interesting Informa
tion, Personal and Otherwise—Hints For
A few years ago when the “bang” was
universal two pretty gitls who became
intimate always sealed the bond of true
confidence by telling each other how
they “did” their front hair. Today, un
der the reign of the shirt waist and gir
dle, the burning question is, “How do
you keep your belt down?” The seem
ingly simple costume of blouse, skirt
and belt is really as difficult to realize
in perfection as most seemingly simple
things. The hour that fashion decreed
that the “tails” of the blouse were to
disappear inside the dress skirt and a
black ribbon belt was to clasp the join
ing between shirt and skirt woman’s lot
received another cross.
Watch the trim scores of girls who trip
along the streets of the great shopping
district; admire them as they advance
toward you hatted, gloved and shod as
only the daughters of New York are; de
light in the well nourished, rounded,
womanly figures in the simple silk or
linen shirt waist, the well hung dark
skirt and the broad black belt; then ven
ture to turn your head and gaze after
any one of these divinities as she glides
past and away from you. There is a fa
tal hiatus between the gathers of the
back breadths of that well hung skirt
and the broad black ribbon belt made
moiselle has passed round her dainty
waist. The skirt and the belt it is sewed
to have slipped from under the outer
separate ribbon belt, and the wearer
knows it and is far more unhappy about
it than you can possibly be.
just as tne gins tuougnr tne Diazer
had solved their difficulties and drawn a
veil over that miserable divorce between
belt and skirt, which is the bane of their
existence, along came fashion again and
cut off the tails of the blazer almost to
the shoulder blades and sternly ordained
the Eton jacket. Belts that join behind
and unfurl funny little bunches of ruf
fles over the offending gap or a silk bow
with ends are applied to the small of the
back—anything rather than admit that
women are not built for the blouse, the
skirt and the belt as at present con
structed and combined. There is some
thing really sad in the bald treachery of
the most desperate expedients, as when a
natty girl in an immaculate duck suit
seats herself at a restaurant table for
lunch. The weight of her body drags
her skirts, the separate belt remains stol
idly unmoved, and a large brass safety
pin, falsely so called, is disclosed, with
which she has hoped to secure all her
petticoats, as it were, to her,very verte
The fact is the so called waist line is
as imaginary as the equator. The nat
ural girdle line is as displayed by Sarah
Bernhardt—that is, passing across the
hollow of the back, over the hips and
under the abdomen. To say that our
fair and lovely New York ladies shall so
gird themselves when they take their
walks abroad is to leave anatomical for
sumptuary law, but the fashion of the
shirt, the skirt and the belt is a theory,
and the lamentable disunion among
them is a condition which stares us in
the back.—New York Sun.
The Superiority of Women.
How long can it reasonably be expect
ed that the old custom will last in d " r
ence to which wives are content to be
known by the surnames of their hus
bands? All the recent tests tend to show
the superiority of the female , mind to
that of the male. Mrs. Alice Freeman
Palmer, in a recent address, supported
the cause of coeducation with the argu
ment that “nothing in the world will
take the foolishness and romantic no
tions out of a girl so quick as to work
with young men and find out how little
they know.” Of course marriage has
the same effect, but after a girl is mar
ried it is too late for her to save her
maiden name. If she arrives before
marriage at the sophisticated stage that
Mrs. Palmer describes, she may very
reasonably demur to giving up a name
which she feels competent to distinguish
for one which will be handicapped by
her husband’s relative inferiority.
All along the line this summer women
have triumphed. In the recent assign
ment of general fellowship by the Chi
cago university young women got so dis
proportionate a share of the spoils as to
scandalize the authorities. When the
London Geographical society declined in
the spring to admit women to its mem
bership, the society’s action was received
not at all as evidence of the inferiority of
women, but purely as a new proof of the
limitations of men. Ten women passed
the Cambridge mathematical tripos this
year, and two of them came out wran
glers. Three women took honors at Ox
ford, at which university also honor ex
aminations were this year opened to
women in three new courses. At Lon
don university Miss Ogilvie, a prodigy
of erudition from Aberdeen, passed with
the highest credit the examination for
the degree of doctor of science.
At this rate how long will women be
content with the substance and abstain
from grasping the shadow also? How
long will Miss Jones consent to become
Mrs. Smith? How soon -will she demand
a competitive examination between
Smith and herself to determine before
marriage which is the compelling entity
and whether it is more meet that she
shall become a Smith or that Smith and
the children shall become Joneses?—
A Timely Suggestion to Parents.
In our country the bright young men
i,nd women in even remote towns and
villages may be called sooner or later
)o take place among the representatives
of courts and social conditions of a most
exalted and punctilious formality. Why
should any one who can by a wisely di
rected effort enjoy such advantages at
some be left to learn elegance, ease and
social polish through embarrassment
and failure? It is both cruel and repre
I hensible. Make it impossible, parents,
for any one to point to American youth
as sadly deficient in the ease and gra
ciousness which come from social inter
course by giving your sons and daugh
ters the opportunity for social culture
whenever and wherever it is possible.
Small villages have their duties no less
j than large cities.
If you have a comfortable home, my
dear friend, and have never given a party,
try it this coming winter. Invite your
neighbors; decorate yonr house with the
best you can afford. If possible, have a
guest or two from out of town to add
! zest and flavor. Let it be society—not a
rustic powwow, but an attempt at cul
tivated and elevating association, where
every one shall be alert and well man
Do not feel that anything less than the
best in manners, deportment and gra
cious charm will answer from you as a
hostess, and you will find even the most
indifferent among your guests striving to
| emulate you.—Jenness Miller Monthly.
The Summer Flower Girl.
I scorn the charge that the summer
girl has any foibles, at least any that are
! not enhancing. The flower girl is par
i ticularly charming to look upon. I mean
the girl who gets herself up in the tints
; of a certain flower and carries out the
j pretty conceit by wearing the natural
blossom that she represents or some nat
ural looking artificial flowers. For ex
j ample, this morning I saw such a pi
quant and pretty creature dressed a la
brilliant poppy! The dress foundation
was of some creamy stuff that made an
agreeably cool and summery looking
background, and then there were some
stem green ribbons here and there, and a
loose cluster of great, fluffy, nodding pop
pies on the wide brimmed hat, and—well,
you can imagine how decorative the ef
fect was. It was not two minutes be
fore I saw a buttercup girl with petal
sleeves of buttercup yellow shimmering
silk falling below a bolero bodice that
together with the dress bore out the gen
eral color scheme. The mignonette girl
is especially attractive to my mind in
these warm days. She looks so deli
ciously comfortable, and so does the lily
white dotted swiss muslin girl. Really,
with all the opprobrium that fashion
gets, she deserves a deal of credit for
many of her edicts.—Boston Globe.
A Plucky Young Girl.
A year ago last spring a German
named Cranefeldt, living a mile north of
New Doyle, Ills., died, leaving a small
farm to his widow and children. His
two hoys were too small to he of any use
in carrying on the farm, but his daugh
ter Annie, who was about 18 years old,
took up the burden, and well has she car
ried it. Last fall she plowed, harrowed,
rolled and planted 13} acres of wheat all
by herself. In the spring she put in 13}
acres of oats, which have just been
thrashed and yielded about 30 bushels to
the acre. She has also plowed the ground
and planted 30 acres of corn, which she
has cultivated well and just “laid by,”
and she has as good an outlook for a good
crop of corn as most of the fanners
around here. She takes all the care of
four horses—two work horses and two
young ones—and does all the work on
the place. She is not very large, but has
lots of determination and push. Most
girls left as she was would have set down
with “I can’t,” while Annie started out
with “I will make a living for the fami
ly,” and she has done it.—St. Louis Re
How to Look Cool Suddenly.
If you come in after a long round of
shi pping and receive a sudden summons
to tno parlor to meet some unexpected
guest, do not be dismayed at the crimson
face which meets your eye as you stand
before your dressing table mirror. Like
wise do not seek a remedy in the bath
room. Many women think the only way
to cool off is to bathe the facel.ivis.ily in
cold water. This is a great mi ...ike and
with a thin skin will only intensify the
color, and the last estate of this woman
shall he worse than the first.
Dash the water on throat and neck as
freely as you choose, particularly at the
back of the neck, but if the face is bathed
at all let it be done sparingly; then
sponge with Florida water and lastly
apply a generous coatyig of rice powder.
You will look ghastly, but let the pow
der remain while you add the few neces
sary touches to your toilet. Then, just
as you are to descend to the parlor, dust
off all superfluous powder lightly, and
you will welcome your guest fresh and
cool, not only in appearance, but in
To Honor Miss Emma Willard.
A new association is about to be or
ganized to honor Emma Willard in a
practical manner. This association we
shall call the Emma Willard Education
al society. It will take an active inter
est in all that pertains to education, and
particularly in the interests of women in
educational matters—for instance, the
opening of all the great universities to
women, the equal division of all school
offices, the equal pay of same, the form
ing of loyal leagues among the school
children as affiliations of the society.
These leagues will have for their object
the teaching from childhood the right of
each human being to wield his own weap
on of defense, whether it be the bow and
arrow of early and barbarous men or the
ballot of civilization, and that under our
government it is the duty of every citi
zen to vote and thereby secure good gov
ernment.—Mary A. Bennett in Boston
