WOMEN WILL WATCH LANDING
Evon Though Fugitive Suspect In El
more Mystery Is Disguised as Fe
male, It Is Believed He Can
not Escape Detection.
New York, July 10.-That Dr. II. II.
Crippen, alleged slayer of Ills wife.
Belle Elmore, Is on the lied Stnr liuer
Kroonland, duo here tomorrow, Is the
belief of the London police. They feel
convinced that the fugitive and his
companion, Ethel Leueve, boarded tile
steamship at Dover on July 0, together
with a number of other passengers
Crippen and the woman are supposed
to have left London on the afternoon
of July 0. lie was last seen going from
his office at 1 o'clock. They had ample
time to catch the Huer nt Dover.
All the women friends of Sirs. Crip
pen who have been aiding the police
in the search for the fugitive will be
nt the pier when the Kroonland docks,
nnd there is little chanco that Dr.
Crippen and Miss Leneve, if they are
aboard, will be able to slip ashore un
observed, even though Dr. Crippen is
disguised as n woman, as Is now sup
posed. Detectives will bo sent down to meet
the ship when she arrives at Quaran
tine tonight or early tomorrow morn
lug. Yesterday Detectives Leeson nnd
Moody looked for Dr. Crippen and the
Lenevo girl on two vessels, the Atlan
tic Transport liner Mlnnetonka and
the French steamship Chicago. They
searched both vessels thoroughly.
Mme. Ginnetr, who was Belle El
more's friend; Mrs. R. H. Mills. Belle
Elmore's half sister, and Mrs. B. Ilyde,
a London friend of Mrs. GInnett's,
were on the piers when the boats
docked and also scrutinized the pas
sengers. Moody and Leeson had instructions
to look for Crippen among the women
passengers. Scotland Yard had an idea
that he might be disguised as a woman.
Inquest Begun In London.
London, July 19. Dr. Danford
Thomas of Loudon, coroner, began nn
Inquest over what was left of the body
of Belle Elmore, the music hall singer,
which was found last Wednesday in
the cellar of the house which she oc
cupied with her husband, Dr. Ilawley
Harvey Crippen, on Hllldrop Crescent,
Dr. Thomas told the Jury that the
remains were supposedly those of Mrs
Crippen. There was not, ho said, a
great deal of evidence to place before
the Jury and it would be necessary to
ndjonrn tho inquiry, as nn analysis of
the organs was being made in order to
find out if iwlson had been admin
istered to the dead woman.
Mrs. Walter Neave, the mother of
the Leneve girl, who is supposed to
have lied with Dr. Crippen, and sev
eral oincers of the Ladles' Music Hall
guild were present at the Inquest.
The naive appeal of the detectives
to tho Lenevo woman, supported by
the pathetic letter of her father,
Walter Neavo, to disclose here where
abouts have been without effect. Tho
woman's real name is Neave, but for
some reason of her own she called her
self Leneve. a name by which she
was possibly known while n Rtudent nt
a Trench convent.
Scotland Yard has started out on
another lead. Tho olilcers notified nil
pawnbrokers in tho United Kingdom
to be vigilant In accepting pledges
from a man or n woman answering the
description of Dr. Crippen or his com
panion. The police say they have rea
son to suspect that Dr. Crlpjen had
not more than 100 in his possession
when ho lied, and they argue that he
will shortly be compelled to pawn
some of Belle Elmore's Jewelry, which
cannot bo found. It Is known that
she possessed Jewels of considerable

Cleveland, July 10. J. W. Dale,

A FOREGLEAM OF THE KINGDOM.
International Bible Lesson for July 24,
10 (Matt. 17: 1-8, 14-20).
Life, to most people, has a remark'
able rosoniblance to the geography ot
the planet. It Is characterized by
stormy scos, and verdant fields, by
peaceful valleys and vast prairies, by
Saharas of barronnoss and oases of
plenty, by monotonous plains and
mountain ranges. But, while In tho
natural world, millions are shut in by
their environment, and arc compelled
to remain within tho "bounds of their
habitation," in the mental and splri
tual world no such barriors exist. Tho
mind is Independent of locality. Tho
body may be chained to tho dull,
treadmill cxlstenco that knows no
change from year's end to year's end,
but tho spirit, on the wings of In
spiration may fly nway from corrod
ing caro to revel in Inspiring scenes
and to drink at life's oternnl fountains,
Such an exalted experience was
that of Christ at his Transfiguration
It was a mountain top incident It
was a luminous moment Taking with
him tho three mighty ones, Peter,
James nnd John, tho triumvirate upon
whoso shoulders was to rest the bur
den of his church In after years moat
largely, ho left the dreary plain and
climbed tho rugged sides of snow-capped
Mt Hermon, lifting its mighty
bulk 10,000 feet above the sea, and
the portals of eternity opened. Thero,
surrounded wltli supernatural beings,
"His face did shine as the sun, and
his garments wero white as tho light"
It was a foregleam of what shall be.
Wrapped in a glorious cloud, in an
ecstacy unutternble, shaking off tho
weight of care and trouble the soul of
the Perfect Man claimed Its rightful
heritage and revelled in conscious vic
tory. Exalted Experiences.
Such luminous moments have been
often experienced by men. There are
long years of dreary service and
drudgery. Tho burdens of life gall
the bending shoulders, and tho feet
are blistered as they tread their way
ov"r the burning sands. And then,
suddenly, we find ourselves tolling up
th" slopes of our Mount of Transfig
uration on whose heaven-kissing sum
mit we see visions and hear voices
whoso glory and powor can never be
told, and in the memory of which we
move for years thereafter.
AH the great things of earth have
come to men In those moments of ex
altation, when the soul is flooded with
the light "such as never was on sea
or land." The musician produces his
compositions, good but unsatisfactory;
and then all at once In a moment of
inspiration gives the world an immor
tal oratorio. Tho artesan laboriously
tolls in his workshop, and suddenly
startles tho world with an lndlspensl
ble Invention. Tho artist paints a plo
ture that crowns all his achievements.
Tl'o sculptor carves an image that Is
the admiration of tho ages. The poet
sings a song that throbs through the
centuries. The statesman produces a
system of government that emanci
pates a race. They are tho results of
mountain top visions, of the luminous
moments of life.
Wo estimate men in this world,
not by what they may bo doing at any
specified timo, but by what they have
dono in their highest moods, what
they have dono at their best We do
not expect Demosthenes to make
evory speech an "Oration for tho
Crown." We do not look for Shakes
peare to be always writing a "Ham
let" Ono "In Memoriam" satisfies us
a8 to the ability of Tennyson. We
measure their callbro by what they
have done, and can do, in the full
swell of their powors.
Perhaps the noblest, the most beau
tiful picture in the world Is Raphael's
last masterpiece, his last painting, tho
Tranafluratlon, now in the Vatican at
Rome. He spent years of study upon
it: It was scarcely finished when ho
died. While he was sick, ho bad the
plcturo hung In his sight, that his con
stant thoughts might rest upon it
And when ho was dead, tho plcturo
was hung above his lifeless body,
where for days crowds came to honor
his wonderful genius, ns they looked
with reverence at tho dead artist and
hla matchless conception.
We cannot all be Raphaels, but wo
can all have our Transfiguration, a
great crisis in our career when wo
are lifted above and out of our en
vironment as Paul was, caught up Into
invisible spaces to hear and see
things unutterable. Tho busy mer
chant may have it the tolling day
laborer may experience It tho care
worn mother may enjoy it Such a
luminous moment will broaden our
outlook, increase our faith, make life's
burdens easier to carry, send us forth
with now inspiration to tako our place
in the toll of llfo at the foot of the
mount We may not say much about
it in after years, but all llfo will tako
on a different moaning thereafter, and
we shall move among men as thoao
who have been where the gates of
heaven wero ajar.
Such moments are not tho every
day experiences of men. Christ bad
but ono transfiguration in his 33 years
of life. It was not tho day dream of
youthful enthusiasm, a mora castlo In
tho air of a visionary. It wrb the
revelation of God to a soul prepared
for it by years of patient discipline.
Service in tho valley and on the plain
Is tho preparation for the vision.

Why Not Pass the Plate?
They ought to pass tho plato at
church weddings. It comes natural to
do It In church, and to do so would
add a pretty and useful employment to
tho duties of tho ushers, who always
have a littlo spare timo before the
brido arrives. And, really, getting
married Is moro expensive than over,
and, though wedding presents are ex
cellent in their way, what tho young
people usually need tho most is cash.
Instead of tho list of gifts which tho
newspapers sometimes print wo should
read, "The collection yielded $4,000,
000." That would bo nice. It is much
easier to storo and caro for money
than plate and glass! And money al
ways fits and there is no such thing as
an embarrassing duplication of dollars.
He Saved the Patent Offioe.
When in tho wnr of 1812 tho British,
who bad taken Washington, trained
their guns upon tho patent office, Dr.
Thornton, throwing himself directly
before tho guns, cried:
"Aro you Englishmen or Goths and
Vandals? This is tho patent offlco a
depository of tho ingenuity and Inven
tions of tho American nation, In which
tho wholo civilized world is interested.
Would you destroy It? Then let the
charge pass through my body."
And tho building was spared. Twenty-four
years afterward, however, It
was destroyed by Are, together with
everything in it
Why He Applauded.
"Aro you fond of music?" asked a

"Not particularly," replied tho young
man frankly, "but I am extremely
fond of the musician."
Tho orleDt bus the grume?' number
nnd probably the most persistent ot

Is tho man who paraded a boulevard

Tho animal was decorated with rags
of many colors, and in tho snddle. an

A pnlr of crutches were fastened to

of tho desert sailed majestically with
the boulevard tide until the police
brought it to anchor. The man knew
well that tho peoplo of Paris appre
ciate a novelty, and he probably mado
money on his camel investment before
his business was shut off. "I doubt
whether any one in Paris would bo
much surprised to see a beggar in nn
automobile. As to tho beggar on horse

How Knob Noster Was Named.
J. M. Shepherd of Knob Noster writes
concerning the origin of his town's
name: "Knob Noster is situated at
tho foot of two beautiful hills or
'knobs,' in the western vernacular.
These knobs nre green and grass grown
to their summits and rise out of a flat
prairie from which they can be seen
for many miles. When tho village was
founded In tho early fifties a school
house was built nnd nn eastern school
master was employed to teach a pay
school. When he arrived at his place
of omploympnt ho was struck with the
beauty of tho knob and, being exceed
ingly proud of bis knowlodgo of Latin,
dubbed them 'Knobs Noster, or 'Our
Knobs.' The villagers wero struck
with the name and named their town
after the designation of their Latin
loving schoolmaster. Tho process of
time seems to havo worn tho V from
'Knobs.' "Kansas City Star.

Would You Enjoy
Healthy Old Age?
Advancing years bring a tendency to
coldness of the hands and feet, resulting
from sluggish circulation, a torpid liver and
constipation. This is a condition, not a
disease, and can best be remedied by taking
Smith's I'incappleand Butternut Tills which
invigorate the liver, cleanse and revitalize
the blood and tone up the whole system.
They are of inestimable value, not only in
advanced age, but also for people of all
ages. They prevent premature wrinkles,
give a health glow to the skin, and under
their antiseptic and blood cleansing influ
ences the complexion retains its freshness
while sallowncss permanently disappears.
Hundreds of grateful old ladies in their
letters write i " Your pills make me look
and feel ten years younger." Smith's Pine
apple and Butternut Pills always make old
age comfortable, and promote digestion and
nutrition by their specific action on the
stomach, liver and bowels. Physicians use
