of his death and that it was one of thft
most deliberately planned and cleverly
executed cases of the sort in criminal

Intrusted to Mrs. Oliver to be given to

The story of the struggle made by
her to bring the book to the notice o<

and the faith of the little woman who
struggled on alone after the loss >>t
her husband, at one time a prominent
physician, and her only son, has ftt

Doctrine of Reincarnation
The book treats of theosophlcal sub

posed to be based on the life of Phyloa
and opens In Atlantis, where he 19
seen as a boy. His wanderings from
one planet to another and his different
Incarnations are used as a means of
introducing theories and prophesies re
garding the different sciences.
In the preface to the book, which \i

plains his connection with Phylos by
saying: "I am mentally and spirit

son would have to get up in the night
to write. He would do the work by

matter. The book was not written in
the way most stories are, for some
times a page near the end of the book
would be revealed and next to it one
that should be "at the beginning. "When
a page was finished a number was
given to him and when the revelation
ceased, after two years, all the pages

a letter, said to be from Phylos, in
which he says: "I make no pretensos

Mrs. Oliver says Phylcts told her

that money would come for that pur

The "Pauper Peanut" Invasion
For the first time African peanuts
(Arachldes) received at Marseilles have
been re-exported to the United States,
according to Consul-General Skinner.
The value of these exports during the
fiscal year 1904 was $25,065. As some
sample lots of American peanuts had
been received in Marseilles the year be
fore, this turning of the tables may
occasion surprise. It appears that the
exports of the nuts from Europe to the
United States were In consequence of a
shortage In the American, crop. The
African nuts are inferior to the Ameri

to change this nourishment into pure,
rich, red blood, and Invigorates and
strengthens the entire body.
