Comes to Spokane, Finds Out Where Husband Has Hidden
Daughter, and Captures Her.
(By United Press Leased Wire)
SEATTLE, March s.—Mrs.
Blanche Faulkner is back in Seattle
today, and with her is her three
year old child, Alice Bessie, the
baby stolen by the father, who, in
jail at Spokane, told the police that
the baby was starving and freezing
to death in a shack at the edge of
the city.
By a clever ruse, Mrs. Faulkner
got back her child, and thwarted
her husband, who has so many
times defeated her In the fight for
her custody. When Faulkner was
brought back to Seattle by a detec
tive he did not bring the child.
While in Spokane he got an order
from the court restoring the cus
tody to him.
But Mrs. Faulkner also holds an
order of the court. She quietly
slipped off to Spokane and casually
paid a visit to the Windsor hotei,
where she and her husband for
merly lived, and where the little
girl was finally found by the Spo
kane police.
She talked of various things. Ap
pearing unconcerned, she finally
mentioned the baby, asking conven
tional questions about the child's
welfare, how the little tot liked its
new home and its care, just as if
she knew everything concerning
her whereabouts. She played her
part well and threw the landlady off
her guard.

LONDON. March s.—The illness
of a prominent society woman of
title emphasizes a new fad among
leaders of the smart set that little
has been spoken of in the news
papers or society journals. It is
known as the "sour milk cure."
This cure is becoming highly pop

that there is some risk attending it.
It was first edvocated by Prof. Elie
Metchnlkoff of the Pasteur institute
of Paris, and has since been devel
oped on scientific lines by other
medical men.
One of its chief dangers seems to
lie in the fact that the milk may be

Br. {Catherine M. H. Blackford is
a young woman at present creating
something like a sensation in New
York and Boston with her character
readings. She is a phrenologist.
She claims to have turned the art
of reading character into an exact
science. She proposes to use this
to help people find themselves.
She says a young man might be
plugging along as a bookkeeper and
making bad weather of it for the
single reason that he hadn't cor
rectly analyzed liis character before
starting in. If he had made such
an analysis, he would have known
that he was cut out by nature to be
a shoe clerk, and all the wasted
years as a bookkeeper might have
been spared him.
Miss Blackford has analyzed the
characters of 17,000 people, and she
can tell after a short examination
whether one was designed origin
ally to be a bookkeeper, a shoe
clerk, or anything else.
She does this by looking into
one's eyes, by studying one's pro
file, by observing one's gait, and a
hundred other things an amateur
character reader would never think
Dr. Blackford says she can tell
any young fellow what sort of a

girl he chooses: hut if he backs Dr.

family will he scarce.

The cryptograms were printed in
a San Francisco morning paper be

The advertisements were pre

that some of the messages referred
