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 ens tody to him. MOTHER'S CLEVER RUSE. 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 tallied 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 Bhe knew everything concerning her whereabouts. She played her part well nnd threw the landlady off her guard. "Mrs. Kuder is a fine woman: she BEWARE OF FUDGE, GIRLS, SAYS WILEY. WASHINGTON.

SOUR ILK CURE IS THE LATEST OVER IN LONDON 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 ular, although medical men agree that there is some risk attending it. It was first edvocated by Prof. Elie Metchnikoff 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 come contaminated in the process of being "soured." and the cure should certainly never he taken ex cepting under medical instructions.

SAX FRAXCISCO, March 5.— The scheme to consolidate the cities bordering San Francisco into one corporation was revived today, following a meeting of the mayors of San Francisco, Oakland, Berke ley and Alameda on the platform of the Auditorium at Alameda last night. It had been stated pre viously that the conference was called with the view of discussing the question of municipal water supply. It was believed that Mayor McCarthy of San Francisco might have something to say regarding the desirability of the trans-bay cities joining with San Francisco in its fight to retain its water rights in the Iletch Hetchy valley in Yosemite national park. The consolidation of the cities, how ever, was the principal subject dis cussed. ESCAPES SCOLDING AND GETS $100,000 Curtis, Harvard Student Who Eloped, Wins Cash and Blessing. DENVER, March s.—One hundred thousand dollars instead of a pos sible annulment of marriage is the good fortune of Leonard E. Curtis, lr..

The baggage car was burned and four cars were derailed. No one was seriously hurt.

A small minority of the membership favor inserting tho rate provision. Councilman E. V. Lambert will introduce tho following resolutions at the meeting of the city council next Tuesday night: For figures on a reinforced concrete bridge to re place the high trestle at Sixth ave nue; for providing for a fill at the east end of the same bridge in order to reduce the total length of the proposed new bridge; for a city chemist at $175 per month to test paving materials, as recommended by the Rrowne's addition property owners; requiring paving compan ies that have installed paving un der old contracts to make repairs on defects in the work at once, and for requiring the Great Northern to install a viaduct at Seventh avenue across Hangman creek.

Dyrhii's 5 Slorcs IS YOUR FACE A LEMON OR A BANANA? A UNIQUE READING Dr. Katherine 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 his character before i starting in. If he had made such an analysis, he would have known that he was cut out by nature to be I a shoe clerk, and all the wasted 'years as a bookkeeper might have jbeen 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, j 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 amatenr character reader would never think of. Dr. Blackford says she can tell any young fellow what sort of a girl he ought to marry. Of course, the young fellow may marry any ' girl he chooses; but if he backs Dr. ! Blackford's selection, jars in his family will be scarce, j After studying 17.000 people, Dr. Blackford divides the human spe : cies by faces—the ingrowing face THE MATTER OF THE CRYPTOGRAMS A TRUE SAN FRANCISCO "SHERLOCK HOLMES" STORY OFF THE WIRE. SAN FRANCISCO, March 5.— District Attorney Fickert is work ing today upon a mysterious series of cryptograms, bearing upon the graft cases, which have been sub mitted to him by Patrick Calhoun, with a request that they be care fully investigated. The cryptograms were printed in a San Francisco morning paper be tween May 2:1, 1908, and August 4. 1909. William R. Stone, a watch maker, of Oakland, noticed the ad vertisements and worked out a key by using only the first letter of each word. The advertisements were pre sented to the Los Angeles office of the paper and were telegraphed here the night, before publication. Stone followed the messages closely and at length submitted them to Calhoun. It is asserted that some of the messages referred to threats against Calhoun and oth- Hpparently refer to Chief of Police Biggy, who was lost in the bay, when he was supposed to have fallen off the police launch, and to the dynamiting outrage and other thrilling features of the prosecu tion. There were 40 cryptograms in all. The following, which appeared July 29, 1909, is an example: "Accounts muddled. Inventory not very essential. Some think in demnity good. All the items noi fcviveU, Have Instructed stockhold ers defer every action till hear ing." Translation —"Am investigating his death." This may refer to S. P. Flynn. historian of the graft prosecution. A $1,700,000.00 Paper Mill NAPOLEON (the common or hatchet variety), which she calls the concave face, and the pimple face, called the prune face by the vulgar, and by Miss Blackford the convex face. Dr. Blackford said: "Temperament is the alphabet of character. Broadly speaking, there are two types—the electric, all blonds, and the magnetic, brunets. The former are vibratory; the lat ter slower, but more steadfast. "Blonds are positive in nature, ■ demonstrative and fickle. Brunets are not so swift in action, but are, as a rule, more reliable. "This classification applies equal ly to both men and women. I "Not only the complexion, but the | features, determine the person's character. "Take the concave face, for ex ample. Its chemical element is known as acid. There you will find 1 the sharp, snappy, alert employe. I "On the other hand, convex feat- I ures—the alkaline type—denote op posite characteristics. "It isn't so had to have the acid face—to be a lemon, so to speak. Lemons may be bitter, but they are exhilarating. Bananas, character less, leave a flat taste. Some per sons are quinces and some apricots. They have to be tried in the fires of experience before they amount to anything. ! "Human peaches are apt to be in sipid. They do not wear well. In ] judging people, remember: Bru nets for comfort, blonds for speed, scid persons, for fireworks, alkalis for the sober, gray moments of life." whose body was found hanging from a pair of clothes hooks in his room in San Jose on July 26, 1909.

He is not quite 7, yet he spent today at a microscopical exhibition here demonstrating with a microscope slide prepared by him self and relating to biological sci ence. His father is a physician and the boy has never attended public school. His father declares the child's reasoning powers are being cultivated nnd that very little is taught him in opposition to this point. Local scientists regard the child as a prodigy much like the Boston iad who recently lectured to a crowd of his elders on the fourth dimension. Asked today If he is a pathologist, young Mr. Turck re plied blandly: "Oh, no. My father doesn't al low me to go into pathology.
