Representative Borland of Missouri on returning to tho capital from a
recent visit to his homo in Kansas City surprised his wlfo by bringing with
him two little girls, aged respectively four and six years. The children were
orphans and had no one to caro for them, so tho congressman in his kindness
of heart had agreed to find a home for tbcm among his Washington friends.
Before arrangements could bo made, however, Mrs. Borland became so at
tached to tho tots that she refused to give them up. Consequently, while not
yet formally adopted, tho children probably will continue to bo members of

Today's Short Story
A Message In Blood
THE detective has many curious rid
dles to solve. One of tho most
rcmarkablo that ever came up
for my solution was connected with
tho case of a man named Joel Klap
per. Ho lived alouo and was murder
ed one night during a blizzard. Tho
murderer left him for dead, but ho
did not die for some time after tho
blow was struck.
Klappcr was used to reading at night
in bed before going to sleep and kept
on a stand besido his bed a lamp,
matches and somo books. When tho
body was discovered in tho morning
tho lamp was burning, though tho oil
was nearly exhausted. Peoplowhohad
passed tho houso between 11 and 12
reported that they had seen no light,
hut a man who 'had passed just before
dawn on his way to a train declared
that ho had noticed a light In Klap
I framed several theories, more or
less Influenced by this circumstance.
Klapper was surely in bed with tho
light out when tho murder was com
mitted, now then could it havo been
burning In tho morning unless ho had
lived long enough after tho blow to
light it? I had a feeling that tho lamp
had been lighted by tho victim with a
purposo after ho had been struck.
I looked for a communication on pa
per, but found nouo. I was absently
turning over the leaves of one of tho
books on tho table when I came to a
red smudge. It covered tho word
"ten." It at once occurred to mo that
Klapper had communicated something
concerning the murder by words
smudged by his own blood, and I look
ed for more, which I found. I expect
ed that they would Ho in tho order of
a message, but they did not. Consec
utively placed they read:
Ten, crisp, man, on,- beard, me. Called.
National, Ave, bill, took dollar, hair, fore
head, new, because, scar, red and stabbed,
I of all, ten.
Tho moment I bad placed these
words on paper in tho abovo order I
knew from tho words scar, beard and
hair that it contained a description of
tho murderer. I also Inferred from tho
words crisp, flvo, bill, ten and national
that it also contained a description of

Howard Sutherland, congressman at large from West
be the editor of a weekly paper in his
years before ho decided to go east and
a bank bill or bills that had been tak
en. My efforts In deciphering tho
message resulted as follows:
Man (with) red hair and beard, scar on
forehead, stabbed me becauso I called.
(He) took ten new crisp flvo dollar bills,
an of the Tenth National.
Since tho bank might havo been tho
Fifth or tho Tenth National, I went to
both and learned nt tho Tenth that it
had paid out some new flvo dollar bills
tho day before, and Mr. Klapper's ac
count showed "ho had been paid 50
tho same day.
I at once advertised to glvo a pre
mium to any one who could furnish
mo with ono of these bills. A woman,
tho cashier of a third rate restaurant,
answered tho advertisement, bringing
ono of tho bills. Tho woman told me
that tho man who gavo it to her was
so rough looking that she feared It was
counterfeit and took It to her employer
boforo changing it In this way tho
matter was impressed on her mind.
She said she could Identify the man.
Tho rest was comparatively easy. I
laid the matter beforo tho inspector
and asked if ho had any record of a
criminal with red hair and beard and
a scar on 'his forehead. After exami
nation ho found that tho description
fitted Jim Rourkc, allasPatsy Burne,
alias Cauky Jack and a number of
other aliases, who had recently been
released from tho penitentiary and
scon in town. Tho man was watched
for, arrested and identified by tho
restaurant cashier. Two of the bills
wcro found on his person.
no was tried and convicted. After
his conviction ho gavo an account of
the robbery and murder that tallied
with my theory.

ANGORA GOATS PROFITABLE.
Amorlcan Farmers Should Supply Our
Entire Mohair Market.
There uro a million Angora goats in
America, and yet wo import annually
over 30 per cent of tho mohair used in
our domestic manufactures. There is
no roason why our farmers cannot
maintain enough goats to supply our
domestic trade with superior mohair,
says Farm and Fireside.
Tho banner goat farm of America Is
located in Texas and numbers 10,000
head of grade and pure bred Angoras.
Last year tho owner of this ranch real
ized a net profit of $1 per animal from
his flock. Thero aro several other pre
tentious goat farms, throughout New
Mexico, California and, Oregon. Tho
largest goat ranch in the Mississippi
valley has 2,000 head, but the average
flock in this country is from 100 to 500
The custom is to shear the goats early
in April. Ordinary hair sells for 35 to
55 cents a pound. This common grade
of mohair, which commands no especial
high price, is that whose length is less
than twelvo inches. The ordinary
fleece of ono year's growth measures
about ten inches in length. The nvcr
age mature doe will shear from six to
nine pounds of mohair each year, while
tho full grown buck will hold from
ten to fifteen pounds.
MAKES GIFT OF CLOISTER.
American Sculptor Turns Over His
Purchase to France.
George Gray Barnard, the sculptor,
of New York has presented to the
French government tho rod marble
Roman cloister In tho ruins of tho ab
bey of St Michel do Cuxn, tho pro
posed removal of which to tho United
States aroused a storm of protest In
France. It was said to have been pur
chased for a prominent American col
lector, and the authorities applied to
the undersecretary for fine arts to pre
vent Its removnl.
Mr. Barnard bought the ruins of the
old abbey six years ago from Mmo. do
St Jean and at tho time declared his
Intention of removing many of tho
architectural objocts to America. In
deed, he did havo shipped to this coun
try many marble columns and capitals
taken from tho abbey. The abbey was
destroyed by flro in tho French revolu
tion, and It is said that it has been
pillaged continually since.
Queen Opposes Gambling.
Queen Mary of England has taken

tho society women who were frequent
