The Earl of Plnton had throe sons and two daughters, Tlie estate being etitntled, It was necessary for the ttvo Junior eons to shift for themselves and foe the daughters to be married.' The iroungost son, Edgar Crafts, realizing that with two brothers ahead of bin' there was little or no chance of his coming into the title, left for Australia. For a time he corresponded 'with, his family mut with Lucy Harmon, " to whom he was attached and who was attached to him, but since fortune did not attend his efforts the eorrcpond ence was finally dropped by reluctant mutual consent. The earl died about ten years after Edgar's departure. His oldest eon suc ceeded him, married, but bad no chil dren. The second son died before the first while still a bachelor. Then the oldest eon tho earl died. Meanwhile Edgar had not been heard from hi many years, lie was' forty years old when the title Tell to him if . ho were, olive. Advertisements for him were put in the Australian papers, but elicited no response. After n two years' fruitless hunt the title was giv en to another branch of the family. ; One lay a man' purporting to be Edgar Crafts appeared and claimed the title and the estates. He said he was forty-three, but looked fifty. He was swarthy and gray and bald. Arch ibald Crafts, the incumbent, at once took the ground that be wag an Im postor. One of the claimant's sisters, who was still living, did not believe him to be her brother. The quick eye of love saw what others could not or would not see. Lucy Harmon, who had not married, at once recognized him ns her lover. If she had not done eo, he would have goon convinced her. There was no way for Edgar Crafts to qpnie into hia rights except by suit In a court of law. But he had no mon ey. He claimed that he had gone from Australia to Uracil, where he had made a fortune and 'lost it. There did not seem to be a ghost of a chance for his winning a case, but Lucy Harmon, who had come into a small fortune during his absence, offered to risk It for his sake. lie declined, but they finally determined to be married, and then suit was begun. One would suppose that there would be many ways of proving a man's Iden tity. So there are. But unfortuuately there are as many ways of proving that he Is not the man be claims to be. There was but one likeness of Edgar Crafts extant taken when he was eight een years old, and tlmt looked very little like him. He and tho likeness were brought before disinterested per sons, who declared that they could not be one and the same.

Out of three experts only one pronounced the two to have been written by the enme person. The preponderance of evidence was against the-clatmant. Donald Beardslee the barrister who had charge of the claimant's case, was much interested in It, He believed the man to be what ho purported to be largely because Lacy Harmon believed In him. Beardslee had been working bard on the case one day without suc cors and was sitting in his smoking room at home after dinner racking his Ingenuity for the morrow when a man was announced, who gavo his name as Patrick Noonan. He was shown Into the smoking room. . "Well, who are you?" asked the bar rister, 'And what can I do for you?" "I'm an old servant ia the service of the Plnton family, sir." The barrister pricked up his ears. "And I want to tell you about Mr. Edgar, sir. The man as has come back Is him." "How do you know?" "I can smell him." "Smell him? What do you mean? You're, not a dog." "I know. the smell of all the late carl's family." The next morning Noonan visited the barrister at bis office. A few daya later Beardslee, who had ransacked the scientific libraries, summoned Noo nan for a witness, but before tatting his testimony read the following to the jury from a German Archive of physi ology: Every human being has a specific odor f his own by which he can bo ree.ogmiied by persons ot sensitive smell. The caso la mentioned of a man who blindfolded could pick out each Individual in a com pany of twenty by his odor. The amell Is not born with us, but develops, grad ually till about the mge ot fourteen, after which it remains unchanged. Members of a family have a kind of common odor which exists -even when they have lived apart for a long time. . Beardslee with this preface blind folded Noonan and brought people to him to smell, asking him If each waa Edgar Crafts. The fifth person brought to him was the sister who did not be lieve the claimant was her brother. Noonan pronounced her one of the Crafts family. The fifteenth person led up was the claimant. Noonan pro nounced him Edgar Crafts. That ended the Craf ta case, and Ed gar Crafts, earl of Plnton, and his countess were put into possession of the title, and estates. But the earl never likes, to have the fact referred to that he was proved to be an earl by hJa smell. C. MORRISON TRIPP. Aristotle. !

Dr. Williams' Pink PUls are a doctor' prescription, nsed by an eminent prac titioner, and for nearly a' generation known as a reliable household remedy throughout the United States.

Added to this is the absolute guarantee that the pills contain no harmful drug, opiate, narcotic or stimulant. A recent evidence of their efficacy is found in the statement of Mrs. N. E. Whitley, of Bosley j Ark. , who says : "I had suffered for a good many years from stomach trouble. For a long time I was subject to bad spells of f&tntness and lack of breath accompanied by an indescribable feeling that seemed to start in my stomach. Whenever I was a little -run -down or over-tired, these spells would come on. They occurred frequently bnt did not last very long. "I was confined to my bed for ten weeks one time and the doctor pro nounced my trouble chronic inflamma tion of the stomach and bowels. Since that time I have been subject to the fainting spell and at other times to flut tering of the heart and a feeling as though I waa smothering. My general health was very bad and I waa weak and trembling.- -. , "I had seen Dr. Williams' Pink Tills mentioned in the newspapers and de cided to try them. When I begfan taking the pills I was so run-down in strength! that I could hardly do any housework. Now I conld walk ten miles if feeoessary. Both my husband and myself think Dr. Williams' Pink Pills the 'best medicine made and we always recommend the pill to enr friends."

DUMA DEFENDS ITS SOCIALISTS Attempt to Bring About the Arrest of Three Akmbers CAUSES AN EXCI1ING SCENE Accusing Speeches Heard Ironical Laughter Greets the Statment That the Rusian Courts Are Above Suspicion. St. Petersburg, April 13. A demand for the .exclusion from Parliament o three .Socialist deputies, pending their trial for political offenses, was submitted to the lower hou-e of Parliament by the minister of justice, M. (Titcheglovit- olf, at yesterday's session, and immedi ately caused an outburst of excitement and indignation. The prosecutions of the deputies have been instituted in the provincial courts for act committed before the convoca tion of Parliament. Two of the arcued men L. F. Gems, a teacher and Social Revolutionist of Kuban, and A. A. Kuz Betsoft, a Social Democrat of fcimbrisk are charged with being Socialists, and therefore members of a party content plating the overthrow of the state. The third A. ft. Kupslas, a peasant land owner of Kevna, who was returned as a member of the Left party is charged with making revolutionary speeches. The Constitutional Democrats, who arc anxions to avoid a heated discussion on the floor, proposed to refer the minis ter's demand to committee, but the Socialists and Social Revolutionist in sis4ed on an immediate. Hat' refusal, in order to place the I!oue on record against the classification as crimes of such acts as the three deputies are chstged with committing. M. Alexinxky, SK'ial Democrat of St. Petersburg, in a heated speech, pointed out that a recognition of the minister's right, to demand the deputies exclusion might lead to the exclusion of a third of the membership of the House. The minister of justice then arose to defend hi demand. He declared that the law clearly provided for the tempo rary suspension of deputies indicted for criminal acts. The House, he insisted, had no diKcretifin in the matter. He added that the Russian courts were above suspicion, a statement which was greet ed with ironical 'laughter.. . , The Constitutional Democratic reso lution to refer the demand of the min ister of justice to a committee, which was opposed by both t lie Socialists and government, was finally carried by a slender majority of 197' to 175 votes. , On account of the increasing mass of committee work, a resolution abolishing morning sessions was adopted yestetday, and the House in future will begin busi ness at 2 in the afternoon.

He said that in the process of tho contraction of the sun from infinity to its regent bulk the eun would yield ha present amount of heat by contraction for only 9,520,000 vears. But Prof. Joly had shown it would re quire 100,000,000 ycarsi for the earth's water to turn from fresh to salt. Therefore, he concluded ; that there must be some source of energy ia the sun much greater than that arising from contraction. This source, he said, was found in the movement of corpuscle 3 of matter at the velocity of ligh. A small quantity of these part icles, such as radi um, would produce a tremendous energy, and heat. ; "Ai Ye Sow," at Opera House. In speaking of the" first production of Rev.
