disappeared Immediately nfter the nr

picion of having slnln Mrs. Porter

The hunt for this woninn ndds n new
problem to the perplexing mystery.
What pnrt she Is supposed to have
ployed In the crime the police will not

Is clear from the pnlnstaklng measures
which have been adopted to apprehend

On that night, so the proprietor of
the Jolamhi has sWom, and be Is back
ed up by one of his chambermaids, El
frleda Duchers left the hotel early,
and she did not return to her room
that night. The bed was not dlsturled
tho next moruhig when the maid went
to tidy up the room.
The nest day the news came to the
hotel of the finding of the trunk in the
lake and almost colucldentally the
woman returned In a carriage. Shi
appeared to have heard the report al
ready, and she rushed excitedly to the
proprietor, clamoring in her broken
French, which was not at all Germanic
In Its faults, to be told all about the
finding of Mrs. Charlton's body.
"Has the murderer been arrested?
Have they got him?" were her In
slatent questions. She remained on
the piazza of the hotel all morning,
bending to catch the last scrap of gos
sip that passed from mouth along the
roadway. Shortly before sundown one
of tho servants who had been over the
g'round from the Villa Moltraiso to the
water's edge came running up to the
hotel with the news that Constantlne
Snolaton. the Hussion, had been ar
rested over the border.
The woman hearing the news be
came greatly agitated, so the proprie
tor of the hotel Jolanda wound up the
story he had told the procurator.
"She called for her bill Immediately
and in doing so she spoke two English
words, 'How much?'. Then she In
quired what was the first tralu on the
St. Gothard railroad that would carry
her to Luzerne. She went In n hurry
and with excitement.
The proprietor added that he had as
sured the procurator that in his beliel
the woman who had made the hurried
visit and the moie hurried departure
was au American.
Dragging of Lake Como has lulled sc
far to result In the discovery of Portei
Charlton's body, but a coat belonging
to the missing man was found. He
life deepens umong tho searchers that
the bodv Is somewhere beneath the
waters of the lake.
Snolatoft has been repeatedly sub
Jected to rigid examination, but he re
fuseM to confess.
The American ambassador to Home
John G. A. Lelshmnn, and the Anier

said that the ambassador came at the
suggestion of the state department at
Washington with the purpose of pusli
lug the Investigation into the murdei
of Mrs. Charlton. Mr. Lelsbmon wll
remain temporarily ns the guest ol
some friends at Moltrasio. At his re
quest divers will explore the bottoir
of the lake. This is a difficult task, ua
thi water where the body was found
is fifty feet deep and shelves off to
ward the center so sharply that It has
never been fathomed.
An autopsy performed upon the body
of Mrs. Charlton Is said to have r
rented tho presence of drugs. It has
been learned, however, that the wo
man was a victim of the cocaine habit.

It usually requires about n month to

blessings, vacations may be so far per

vacation Is a great builder of body nnd

one used as ordinarily wasted by many

As we pray we are prostrate before
Omnipotence and boundless love. It
will be well with us all when we learn
to pray. If It is well with us now It Is
because there nre more than ten just

is all right with the world because God
is in His heaven, but It is more nil
right because He Is on His earth as

A PLAGUE OF BABOONS.
They Ate the Crops In Nigeria So
Fast Natives Gave Up Farming.
In many parts of Nigeria, and es
pecially among the hill regions of tho
northern provinces, baboons nre one
of tho grcntest plngues to tho farmor
and a source of tnennco to property and
even to life. A Protcctornto ofllcor
wkllo ongnged in business in a moun
tain village wa3 informed by the local
queen thnt her people could not con
tinue their fanning owing to tho rnlds
During the nbsenco of the men a
few weeks previously these boasts
hnd actually come Into the heart 'of
tho village and destroyed tho crops,
according to .the Wldo World Maga
zine. The natives are In constant
droad of them and continually fear
for tho safety of their children. ..
Sir William Wallace relates that fio
has seen droves of fifty to a hundred
of these nnlmals nil in single file, nnd
that lately he himself shot two enor
mous brutes who were grinning at him
from the cliffs. They utter a nerve
shattering and horrid bark.
They possess a regular system of
defence and always have Blgnallera
out to watch for the approach of n
possible enemy. Theso scouts nre al
ways tho biggest monkeys and they
signal by barks to their comrades
when strangers nro approaching.
Meat Starvation Disease.
Tip maintains thnt the absence of
proper animal food in several genera
tions, absence of it in the growing
child, absence of it In the life of par
ents and grandparents; this absence
of live meat for generation upon gen
eration, a chronic, uncured, unap-
peased meat hunger, 13 undoubtedly
the chief cause of catching nnd dying
from consumption. Air hunger nnd
air starvation come only from the
meat starvation; free moat eating and
free breathing go hand In hand. Vege
tarians will deny this broad statement,
but tho broadest-minded physicians
who have seen most of consumption
will say that if tho poor children and
their parents had plenty o! beo thoro
would not be much consumption. In
other words, consumption Is mostly
built upon a very slow, concealed
meat starvation In the Individual and
his forbears. In proof of this, deadly
consumption Is ten times commoner
In the poor than in the rich, and tak
en the world over is far commoner In
vegetarian nations, like East Indlrns
and Chinese, than In meat nations.

EXILED GIRL'S DESPAIR.
He Knoweth the Way You Take,
When you are doubtful ns to your
course, submit your Judgment abso
lutely to the Spirit of God, and ask
him to shut against you every door
but the right one. . . In the mean
while, continue along the path which
you have been already treading. It
lies In front of you; pursue it. Abide
In the calling in which you were call
ed. Keep on as you are, unless you
aro clearly told to do something else.
Expect to have as clear a door out as
you had In; and if there Is no Indica
tion to tho contrary, consider the ab
sence of indication to be the Indica-
I tion of God's will that you are on his
track. . . Bo not afraid to trust
Him utterly. As you go down the long
corridor you will find that ho has pro
ceeded you, and locked many doors
which you would fain novo entered;
but bo sure that beyond theso there
Is ono which ho has left unlocked. F.
The Snowy Owls.
Every few years, especially along
tho sea-coast and the larger rivers and
lakes, there is a wave of those splen
did day-hunting rascals, tho snowy
owls. They are groat fishermen, the
only owls to make this sort of tunting
a practice, and may sometimes Se seen
sitting, silent and motionless, like a
block of ice, at the edge of the open
water waiting'TorTl' chance to nab an
unsusDectlns fish. Of course this Is
not a very paying way to get a living,
and they also catch field mice, musk-
rats, hares and even large birds like
quail or grouse. But there are only
two other birds of prey in our country
that habitually eat fish, and one of
these seldom catches Its own, prefer
ring to eat tho dead fish along toe
shore or pirate It from the real fisher
