New York, Sept. 11. That Mrs. Rosa

have drowned while boating with her at
torSiey and subsequent executor, Bur
ton W. Gibson, on Greenwood lake, Or.
ango county, came to her death from
some other causes was indicated to the
authorities yesterday after the autopsy.
Details of the suHpicioug circumstances
revealed were not given out but it was
announced that the body will be further
examined by an expert and his finding
will be announced at the inquest Sep
tember 18.
The examination was a very thorough
one, very arduous and long. The re
port, signed and sealed, will be delivered
to Coroner James M. Houghton and
made public by him on Sept. 18, the
date set for the inquest. The inquest
will be held in the coroner's court at
4 Oakland avenue, the day after the
surrogate's hearing in Manhattan on
the motion to set aside the letter
testamentary. Frank Menschik, brother
of Mrs. Szabo, sailed yesterday on the
Oceanic, and will arrive in time to at
tend both proceedings.
While the autopsy Mas being per
formed search was being made in New
York for a mysterious girl, about six
teen years old, who is said by Sheriff
De Graw to have had access to the
apartment of Mrs. Szabo at 46 West
Sixty-fourth street, and who is said to
have taken away all the belongings of
Mrs. (v.abo. This girl had the latch
key of the apartment.

How many women have scalded their
hands when lifting a teakettle from
the range because the steam that was
escaping from the spout was blown
back upon them? Probably most wo
men who have handled teakettles. Now
two Oregon men have designed a ket
tle with an attachment to prevent this
accident. The cover of the ketfle Jias
a telescoping steam escape pipe rising
from it and extending horizontally in
the direction of the spout. This pipe
can be extended until tbe end rests on
the tip of the spout, and in this position
all the escaping steam is blown straight
out from the kettle and cannot float
back and burn one. With these two
openings air can enter through the
spout, for example, and by its pressure
blow the steam through the pipe with
sufficient force to prevent a "flareback."

A Dozen Man Might Stand Upright in
the Blue's Big Mouth.
Specimens of the blue or sulphur
bottom whale weighing seventy-live
tous and measuring eighty-seven feet
have been known. The mouth is suffi
ciently large to permit ten or twelve
men to stand upright In H. but tbe
throat measures only about nine
inches in diameter.
The "finback." closely related to the
blue whale, has been called the "grey
hound of the sea." for its long, slender
body Is built on tbe lines of n racing
yacht, and the animal can equal the
speed of the fastest steamship.
The "humpback" is the most lnier
esting of our large whales, because of
tbe fact that its babits are more easily
studied than are those of other mem
bers of the family.
But most extraordinary of all is the
square nosed sperm whale. Instead
of having plates of baleen, this whale
carries a row of twenty to twenty-five
heavy teetta on each side of the lower
Jaw. These fit into sockets In the roof

"Can you tell me, sir, where I can
find the man who killed young Trevor
In this place a few weeks ago?"
The inquirer was an elderly man past
fifty, who spoke in a modulated voice
that indicated tbe gentleman. He was
faultlessly dressed, and everything
about blm betokened respectability and
prosperity. But In his eye was a look
well, it was a look of indescribable
"l'ou refer to Jim Hawkins, I 'spec',
sir," replied one of a group of men of
whom the Inquiry was made.
"I don't know his name. I refer to
the' man who shot and killed young
Trevor," replied tbe gentlemun in the
same quiet voice.
"You'll probably find him at the An
telope saloon, sir. lie's a gambler and
has picked up a scab. Tbe Antelope is
that yaller building right over there.
But don't excite him. Even the sher
iff doesn't dare touch him."
"Thank you, gentlemen," and the
stranger started for tbe aaloou.
Jim Hawkins was one of those des
peradoes who infested the wild west
in the days of its wilderness, especial
ly mining towns. Young Trevor, a
mining engineer, bad gone to tbe place
to examine a mine, had been Invited
by Hawkins to drink, bad declined, and,
having persisted in declining, Haw
kins shot blm dead. Something in tbe
old gentleman's appearance told tbe
men of whom he bad made his Inqui
ries that bis presence in the town had
connection with this murder. It did
not occur -to them that the mild man
nered man bad come out to avenge
Trevor's death. Indeed, tbey didn't
know what be bad come for, but curi
osity prompted them to follow him to
the Antelope saloon. -
Approaching a table where Hawkins
bad been pointed out to blm, he bent
down and said in that same soft voice:
"Excuse me, sir. for interrupting your
game. My Dame is Trevor. I have
come to invite you to have something
with me at tbe bar."
Hawkins looked up, and it seemed
to him that the young man wbose life
be had snuffed out stood before him.
only aged.' It ws as if thirty years
had gone by and young Trevor had
come back to do by him as he bad
done by Trevor.
The- man bending over blm showed
no sign of possessing a weapon, but
there was a self satisfied look so far
as danger was concerned that was
more forceful than if be bad looked
down tbe barret of a pistol Hawkins
did not know whether the apparition'
as be considered it could draw a'
weapon If be had one quicker thani
himself or not Something told him
that the hour of vengeance had come.
Under the Influence of that melan
choly eye he arose from the table,
leaving there a pile of coins be bad
won, and walked side by side with
the stranger to tbe bar.
"Barkeeper," said the newcomer
"set a bottle of whisky before the gen
tleman and a glass."
Tbe barkeeper filled tbe order while
Hawkins said:
"I don't drink with no man who
don't drink with roe."
"Yon are to drink not with tbe liv
ing, but with tbe dead. I am but a
messenger to do what can only ' be
done in tbe flesh."
"Whose messenger?"
"Reginald Trevor."
The stranger facing Hawkins leaned
his right elbow on the bar. supporting
his cheek with bis light band facing
tbe man be had Invited to drink. This
brought the former's hsnd In close
proximity to the collar of his coat at
the back of his neck.
"Will you drink, sir?"
Hawkins looked as if be didn't know
whjsjLJodoneraLseiJ.h!t-hand to
take hold of the bottle standing on thf
bar, and tbe band trembled. Every
one of those looking on saw it and!
knew that the stranger bad deprived
Hawkins of his nerve. Tbey knew IS
from tbe fact that he was obeying the
stranger as well as by tbe trembling
of his hand. Hawkins poured out soma
liquor, spilling much of it Then be
alowlv placed it to his lips and took it)
down at a gulp.
"Have another," said the stranger, ,
But the liquor bad brought back
Hawkins' courage. '
"Not by a"- i
The gentleman's band that had been
supporting his cheek clutched at some
thing under his collar at tbe back o
bis neck, and the broad blade of a
bowle knife glittered before Hawkins
eyes. He started to put bis band to
his hip, whereupon the stranger lowJ
ered tbe knife to within an inch of;
that part of Hawkins' neck that cor-i
era the Jugular vein. i
"Drink!" said the stranger. i
Hawkins band instead of continuing'
to bis hip grasped tbe bottle and
poured out another drink.
And so tbe stranger forced him to
take one drink after another till all
power was gone out of him. when the
former turned to tbe lookers on and
said: -v '
"Call the sheriff." . t
That official, who had not before
dared to lay a band on Hawkins, dis

"When I was sixteen years of age, I noticed
blackheads coining out on my face, then
pimples, all kinds. I
was so ashamed of my
self that I did not go
out of the house. In
fact I did not want to
show myself to my
friends. Only the face
was broken out and
some parts of the hips.
The pimples were red,
large and disfiguring.
Some came to a bead
and some came in big
bumps, seme were as large as a quarter
and they were scattered all over my face
In blotches. In a night's time my fare was
so full of them that I could not sleep on
account of the Itch.
"There was no cure. Medicines, salves;
pills, nothing helped, until I saw about the
Cuticura Soap and Ointment In tbe paper.
I used them Just as directions told me.
and to my astonishment, I found a great
