A pleauant feature of the congressional

abroad is the fact that Dan Cupid

What Is it that makes love the prevailing

Does a discussion of Uncle Sam's new

delightful imprisonment on shipboard

explain it? Whatever the explanation,

the fact exists, and it may result in

making such trips exceedingly popular.

Left Wife and Three Children and

Turn* Up as a MIeelonary in Honolulu.

A Long Chaee.

Rev. W. I). Clark, accused of passing

a forged check on the bank of

Kreejfort, Barry county, has been apprehended

in Honolulu, where he has

been H missionary of the Congregational

church to the Japanese and

Koreans. Sheriff Victor B. Kumiss has

been on the preacher's trail for two

years and will go after him as soon

as the necessary requisition papers

can be prepared.

Clark was pastor of the Congregational

church in Freeport for almost

two years prior to July 24, 1904. He

had a wife and three children and his

salary was small. He is said to have

borrowed |500 from his parishioners,

particularly from widows and maiden


One day early in July, 1904, Clark

went into the bank of Freeport and

told the cashier, Hale Kenyon, that

he was expecting a remittance from

his home in Dayton, O., in a few

days. On July 24 he returned to the

bank with a check for $300, which

he presented to be cashed. Mr. Kenyon

deducted $40 the preacher owed

the institution and handed over the

rest. The next day the Congregational

church was without a pastor and Mrs.

Clark and her three small children

were, left to the mercy of her friends.

She did not remain long, but returned

to her home in Dayton.

After a warrant had been sworn

out charging the preacher with passing

a false check, the police of all of

the large cities were notified. He was

traced to Billings, Mont., where he

had another church, but he was gone

when the officers went to get him.

Soon after this an interesting story

was told by a traveling man who had

known Clark in Dayton and in Billings.

It was to the effect that Clark

and a Dayton woman were seen together

in Kansas City. Clark had

then put aside his ministerial garb,

had cut off his hair and wore rather

loud clothes.

The story was communicated to

John Qetard. brother of Mrs. Clark.

In February, Getard wrote to Cashier

Kenyon of the Freemont bank that

he had heard that Clark was in Honolulu,

and had Been his name mentioned

in a Hawaiian paper. Sheriff

Furnia8 put the wheels to work, but

not until April 22 did he receive any

definite information. Then a letter

was received from (low George B.

Parker of the Hawaiian islands, saying

that Clark had been identified by

a young man who had gone to school

to him when he was a teacher in

Ohio, and yesterday came news of his

Peverett Captured.

Albert E. Peverett, one of the celebrated

escaped from the Ionia institution on

July 7 last, was captured in Garrett,

Ind., and brought back. Peverett was

transferred to Ionia but returned as

In the asylum they kept Peverett

under close surveillance, not allowing

him out of his ward, but one day when

all were at dinner his cell door was

mysteriously unlocked and he walked

out. No one knows how Peverett's

release came about, but they have

been after him ever since. His sentence

was fifteen years.

In the light of the fire the little

man could see their faces, and he became

suddely coherent, smiling at

them in the old way.

"Why have you come so far In the

oue of her cool hands between his own

"But, you poor little father! Why

have you come, when you should be

home in bed? You are burning with


"Yes, yet?, dear, but It's over now.

This is the end. I came here—to be

here—I came to say my last prayer

in the body. And they will come

to find me here. You must go before

they come."

"Who will find you?"

"They from the church. I didn't

mean to do it, but when I was on my

feet something forced it out of me.

I knew what they would do, but I

was ready to die, and I hoped I could

awaken some of them."

"But no one shall hurt you."

"Don't tempt me to stay any

longer, dear, even if they would let

me. Oh, you don't know, you don't

know—and that devil's drumming over

there to madden me as on that other

night. But it's just—my God, how


"Come away, then. Ruel will find

your horse, and we'll ride home."

*'IVi too late—don't as?k me to leave

my lieff now. It would only follow

me. It was this way that night—the

night before—the beating got into my

blood and hammered on my brain

till I didn't know. Prudence, I must

tell you—everything—"

He glanced at Follett appealingly,

as he had looked at the others when

he left the platform that day, beseeching

.some expressions of friendliness.

"Yes, I must tell you—everything."

But his face lighted as Follett interrupted


"You tell her," said Follett, doggedly,

"how you saved her that day

and kept her like your own and

brought her up to be a good woman

—that's? what you tell her." The gratitude

in the little man's eyes had

grown with each word.

"Yes, ye8, dear, I have loved you

like my own little child, but your

father and mother were killed here

that day—and I found you and loved

you—such a dear, forlorn little girl—

will you hate me now?" he broke off

anxiously. She had both his hands

in her own.

"But why, how could I hate you?

You are my dear little sorry fatherall

I've known. I shall always love

you." »

"That will be good to take with me,"

he said, smiling again. 'It's all I've

got to take—It's all I've had since the

day I found you. You are good," he

said, turning to Follett.

"Oh, shucks!" answered Follett.

A smile of rare contentment played

over the little man's face.

In the silence that followed, the

funeral drum came booming in upon

them over the ridge, and once they

•aw an Indian from the encampment

3t»nding on top of the hill to look

down at. their fire. Then the little

man spoke again.

"You will go with him," he said to

Prudence. "He will take you out of

here and back to your mother's people."

"She's going to marry me," said

Follett. Tho little man smiled at


"It is right—the Gentile has come to

take you away. The Lord is cunning

in His vengeance. I felt It must

bo so when I saw you together."

After this ho was so quiet for a

time that they thought he was sleeping.

But presently he grew restless

again, and said to Follett:

"I want you to have me burled here.

Up there to the north, 300 yards from

here on the right, is a dwarf cedar

standing alone. Straight over the

ridge from that and half-way down

the other stde Is another cedar growing

at the foot of a ledge. Below that

ledge is a grave. There are stones

piled fiat., and a cross cut In the one

toward the cedar. Make a grave beside

that, one, and put me in it—Just

os I am. Remember that—uncoffineri.

It must be that . way, remember.

There's a little book here In this

pocket. Let it stay with me—but

surely u^ilomneid, femaaaber, aa—as

the .rest f* tbeiij^were."

"But, father, why talk no? You are

going home with us."

"There, dear, it's all right, and

you'll feel kind about zne always when

you remember me?"

"Don't—don't talk BO."

"If that beating would only stay out

of my brain—the thing is crawling behind

me again! Oh, no, not yet—not

yet! Say thib with me, dear:

" 'The Lord is my Shepherd; I * hit 11

not want.

" 'He maketh me to lie down in

green pastures: He leadeth me beside

the still waters.' "

She aaid the psalm with him, and

he grew quiet again.

"You will go away with your husband,

and go at once—" He eat up

suddenly from where he had been

lying, the light of a new design in his


"Come—you will need protection

now—I must marry you at once. Surely

that will be an office acceptable In

the sight of God. And you will remember

me better for it—and kinder.

Come, Prudence; come, Ruel!"

"But, father, you are sick,"and so

weak—let us wait.."

"It will give me such joy to do it

—and this is the last."

She looked at Follett questionlngly,

but gave him her hand silently when

"Ohl Oh! My Poor Sorry Little

he arose ftpm the ground where he

had been sitting.

"He'd like It, and it's what we want

—all simple," he said.

In the light of the fire they stood

with hands joined, and the little man,

too, got to his feet, helping himself

up by the cairn against which he had

been leaning.

Then, with the unceasing beats of

the funeral drum In their ears, ho

made them man and wife.

"Do you, Ruel, take Prudence by

the right hand to receive her unto

yourself to be your lawful and wedded

wife, and you to be her lawful and

wedded husband for time and eternity—"

Thus far he had followed the formula

of his church, but now he departed

from it with something like defiance

coming up in his voice.

"—with a covenant and promise on

your part that you will cleave to her

and to none other, so help you God,

taking never another wife in spite of

promise or threat of any priesthood

whatsoever, cleaving unto her and her

alone with singleness of heart?"

When they had made their responses,

and while the drum was

beating upon his heart, he pronounced

them man and wife, sealing upon

them "the blessing of the holy resurrection,

with power to come forth in

the morning clothed with glory and


When he had spoken tho final

words nf the ceremony, he seemed

to lose himself from weakness,

reaching out his hands for support.

They helped him down on to the saddle

blanket that Follett had brought,

and the latter now went for more


When he came bark they were again

reciting the psalm that had seemed

to quiet the sufferer.

•• Yea, though I walk through the

valley of the shadow of death. I will

fear no evil; for Thou art with ae;

Thy rod and Thy staff thej comfort

me.' "

Follett spread the other saddle

blanket over him. He lay on his side,

his face to the tire, one moment saying

over the words of the psalm, but

the next listening in abject terror to

something the others could not hear.

"I wonder you don't hear their

screams," he Kaid, in one of these moments;

"but their blood ia not upon

you." Then, after a Uttle:

"See, it is growing light over, there.

Now they will soon be here. They

will know where I had to come, and

thjey will have a spade." He seemed

to be fainting In his last weakness.

Another hour they sat silently beside

him. Slowly the dark over the

eastern hill lightened to a gray. Then

the gray paled until a flush of pink

was there, and they could tee about

them in the chill of the morning.

Then came a silence that startled

them all. The drum had stopped and

the night-long vibrations ceased from

their ears.

They looked toward the little man

with relief, for the drumming had

tortured him. But his breathing wae

shallow and irregular now, and from

time to time they could hear a rattle

in his throat. His eyes, when he

opened them, were looking far off.

He was turning restlessly and muttering

again. She took his hands? aud

found them cold and moist.

said, hopfully. The little man opened

Slowly, then, the little smile faded

—the wietful light of it dying for the

last time. The tired head fell suddenly

back and the wan lips closed over

lifeless eyes.

Good Work Being Done in Vancouver

by the W. C. T. U.

On the Wrong Side.

Dr. Ambrose Shepherd, of Glasgow,

preaching in London recently, called

attenttoir^to the remarkable and saddening

discrepancy between the intense

activity of the churches to-day

and the lack of spiritual results. How

is it that the churches have to say

again and again: "We have tolled all

night and have taken nothing?" Dr.

Shepherd answered his own question

in these words: "The reason why so

much of the prayer, toil, and sacrifice

of the Christian church counts for little

or nothing is because so many of

us are living on the wrong side of

Pentecost. Many of us know Christ;

many of us are following Christ; but

how many of us have claimed our own

Pentecost, or have sought at Christ's

hands that equipment for service without

which all other equipment counts

for nothing?"

Another Missionary Martyr.

Rev. Charles C. Godden, of the

Melanesian mission was murdered by

a native on the Island of Opa, New

Hebrides, on October 16. He had

only recently returned from Sidney,

Australia, with his bride. Mr. Godden's

murder was the revenge taken

by a half-witted Kanaka laborer, who

fancied that he had been ill used in

Queensland, and to whom all white

men were looked upon as enemies.

The missionary had been very happy

and successful in his work and hi?

loss will be keenly felt.

Endowment Fund for Clergymen.

We learn from different sources that,

a movement is in progress among several

of the religious denominations to

create endowment funds for the benefit

of their disabled and superannuated

clergy. At one of the recent

New York a special commissioner v.-as

;ipruunied to raise a fund of $200,000

for this purpose. The money when

raised will bo invested, and the income

devoted to the support, of infirm

noticed that the more troubled she

was the more affection she showed me.

tenderly than ever before, hanging 1

about my neck as though she would

For Comfort in the Bedroom



But One Part of the House Is of More

Importance Than the Sleeping

Chamber, Says Practical


There la no part of a house of really

much more importance than the

sleeping rooms. They are only rivaled

la Importance by kitchens. Diningrooms,

living rooms, libraries and parlors

are secondary.

In an Interesting and informative

volume entitled "Homes and Their

Decoration," published by Dodd,

Mead & Co., the author, Miss Lillian

Hamilton French, reveals a lot of

practical ideas of how to combine the

artistic and the comfortable in bedroom

furnishings. She tells some

common sense secrets that housewives

will be rejoiced to learn.

"A small bedroom,' she says, "may

be made dainty and attractive by

white woodwork and walls, an

enameled bed and white furniture,

white curtains at the windows and

white trimmings for the bed. If a

color is desired it may be added in

several ways. A colored rug may be

introduced—one of plain green or red

filling; or the white curtains and bedspread

may be trimmed with a border

of chintz, the mirror framed with it;

or the curtains may be tied back with

a color, and the small pillow have

ribbons to match. Ribbons, however,

are absolutely interdicted in a bedroom

unless the owner is able to replenish

them whenever they are

mussed or soiled. 'Faded finery/ I

once heard an old lady say, 'is a

sin.' Sometimes 1 am inclined to believe

the dear old lady was right.

"Tf you are in doubt Hbout what

should go on your bureau—and many

people are—remember (hat, like the

sideboard, the well appointed bureau

or dressing table must be first ol all

In spotless order and then be pretty.

No handkerchief rases should lie on

it, nor plush boxes for brushes and

perfumes, nor any materials manufactured

for the catching of the dust

Photographs in frames are permissible,

brushes and combs that are

made for the purpose, with gold, silver,

ivory, tortoise shell or woodeu

backs, but never the cheap ordinary

brush which has no pretension to

beauty and which should be kept out

of sight.

"A dressing table Is literally what

its name implies—a table to dress by.

It is so made that the kuees of the

person who sits before it need not

be obstructed as they would be by

the drawers of a bureau. It contains

no drawers except for extra toilet

articles. If by any chance there

should be both a bureau and a dressing

table in the room, I should prefer

Combination Window Seat and Book


removing the mirror from the bureau

and treating the bureau as a chest of

drawers. The mirror can be used


"Color can be introduced In paper,

paint or hangings. In rooms occupied

by servants who come and go

paint of course is a necessity. It is

preferable in nurseries, unless the

paper can he changed at frequent intervals,

or, having been treated with

varnish, can be washed." |


Exquisite Little Party Given for a

Southern Bride.

A southern girl was the guest of

honor at this exquisite luncheon the

week before her wedding. Only the

bridal party were invited. The tablecloth

was of white net over white satin

and over this were sprinkled hundreds

of delicate sweet pea blossoms cut

from the stems; they were shaded

from white to a deep pink. A dainty

/green vine ran carelessly through this

tnaze of color, over which like a fall

•bf crystal snow diamond dust was powdered.

The lights were shaded with

Opalescent glass and the dining-room

was a dream to enter. The chair ocea-

£ied by the bride-elect was marked by

a huge bow of white tulle, while overhead

wedding bolls with sweet pea

rims and clappers were suspended by

tulle streamers. The favors were pink

satin slippers and white satin wedding

bells. Knots of sweet peas tied with

tulle were also at each place and tiny

(bags rilled with rice. The following

menu was served: Grape fruit on

plates surrounded by smilax, bouillon,

fish in ramakins, potato balls, crown

roast lamb, green peas, mint, ice, fruit

salad, individual cream in shape of

wedding bells with myrtle decoration.


Coffee was served in the library with

cheese and crackers.

Den for the Amateur Photographer.

In this nay when nearly everyone

owns a camera this description of a

"den" is timely.

Imagine a small room with walls of

a grayish blue cartridge paper, a cream

colored ceiling, black plate rail, and

you have the foundation for this most

artistic room. It had been a question

how to disposo of hundreds of good,

bad and indifferent prints, which had

accumulated and which were very dear

to the photographer's heart. She had

books filled, records of many summer

and winter outings, but there were still

countless prints unclassified. So this

method was devised.

There were the pictures of college

days. These were mounted on a piece

of paper matching the wallpaper, ar

ranged according to fancy, trimmed irregularly—oblong,

square, round—as

best suited the subject. They made

three panels and wore fastened to the

wall by narrow strips of black mould

ings. The prints of the Yellowstone

camping party and western scenes

made more panels, then all home j

scones, interiors and special fete day?

were grouped together and thus the

walls were covered. The effect, was

good and the room was a special delight

to visitors. Enlargements of spe

eially good negatives occupied the

plate rail, sonic framed, some clone in


For a screen this amateur made a

frame five feet, high, containing three

panels two feet wide, joined by hinges

These she covered with a grayish blue

burlap fastened with big flat headed

brass tacks. Exclusively blue prints

went on this screen; one panel wa?

composed of child studies, one marines,

one rural subjects. The furniture ol

the room is severely plain, the rugs

and pillows are all hint; ^od white.

If fair young women sponsors who

take a great deal of pride in breaking

a bottle of champagne over the prow

of a ship as she slides into the water

for her first float knew, something

about the origin and significance gf the

launching custom the chances are they

would not be so eager to see the bottle

crash and the foaming liqttid wet the

sides of the vessel

It ia a survival of a barbaric custom

when sacrifices were made to the gods

and some living victim or offering was

held up and its throat cut so that the

blood flowed over the prow of the ship

being launched. The vessel was baptized

in warm blood. Now sparkling

wine or pure water is used, and the

change has many advantages, though

the symbolism remains.

There is another curious custom

aboard ship that is interesting In the

way it has been handed down to us.

When a dignitary visits a foreign country

the moment that his ship enters

port a formal salute is fired as a signal

of welcome. Thia custom was observed

years ago, when It was considered the

correct thing for a port to fire its guns

to show the visiting stranger that the

citizens and authorities placed such

confidence in his friendliness that it

was not considered necessary to keep


We remember the saying attributed

to Huxley that the single ladles of old

England are to be thanked for the

superlqrity of our beef, because they

keep cats to destroy the mice that

would otherwise exterminate the humble

bees that fertilise the red clover

on which our cattle are fed. Now

some one is writing the Spectator to

propose the slaughter of game In the

Zambesi valley In order to prevent the

spread of sleeping sickness. The proposal

hinges on what we consider to

be the mistaken statement by Mr. Austetn

of the British museum, that the

tsetse fly cannot exist long without

mammalian blood. The other step In

the argument is no more Bure—namely,

that the tsetse fly is indispensable

to the spread of sleeping sickness.

The evidence is not sufficient to

condemn the game of even a portion

of the Zambesi valley. The animal

that demands mammalian blood is, we

fancy, far greater than the tsetse fly,

and the fact that, unlike the deer, he

He said he was instrumental in its

adoption by this government, stating

that once while he was abroad and

was dining with Prince Henry, of Prussia,

on the letter's flagship, the band

played "Hall Columbia." He called

the prince's attention to the fact that

it was not a national anthem, and referred

to the "Star-spangled Banner."

Later he and Justice Moody, then

secretary of the navy, discussed the incident,
