"I was laid up sick," Mrs. Earnest continues, "and had not been out of bed for five weeks. Then I began to use Dodd's Kidnoy Pills and now I am so 1 can work and go to town without suffering any. I would not be with out Dodd's Kidney Pills. I havo good reason to praise them everywhere."

Git ATT AN CopyrlRht, 1S90. by Street k. fJjzrifj-i CHAPTER XVI Continued. The woles were closing In upon him. They were on all sides, a famished, tolling pack of devils, their white fangs and fiery eyes showing with hor rible distinctness as thoy sprang at him. Tho rifle, swung with all his trcngth from left to right, and from right to left, cleared a path for him and no sooner did one of the brutes fall than a score of its fellows llteially tore it in pieces. Alexis was becoming exhausted. It was too much for him In his weak ened state. One of tho wolves, ono larger than tho rest, mnde a bound for bis throat, but before It reached him sank In denth agony with a bullet In its brain. At tho same moment, by the over turned sleigh. Alexis caught sight of tho object of bis heroic quest. It was a woman! With white face she stood there, revolver In hand, her back protected by tho sleigh. Shot after shot rang out, and as each time, with unerring nrm, the bullet lodged In the body of a wolf, she gained a moment's icsplto from tlie cowardly brutes. But tho end was bound to come. The last shot but ono had been fired. A3 If by some devilish Instinct tho wolves seemed to Know that their vic tim was now defenseless, and they pre pared for a rush in all tho Btrength of their numbers. With a howl that could havo been heard a league another pack of the brutes had come down from tho hills and joined the others. Then It was that the helpless wom an uttered the wild shriek of agony that had reached the ears of her res cuer had reached even to the courier In the etape. Alexis sprang forward. He found that the arm was a magazine rifle, and with a prayer of thankfulness ho opened fire. Shot after shot, a perfect fusllade followed, and half a dozen of the brutes were lying bleeding in the snow. Another moment and ho had reached tho woman. His faco was povered with blood, his arms were torn, but ho clasped ber by a strong effort and began tho retreat to a place of safety. Repulsed by the shots, the wolves had given wayfor a time, and then had made a simultaneous rush to least on the carcasses of thoso slain by Alexis. But the feast did not last long. Maddened more than ever by the tasto of blood, they sprang after Al exis and his now unconscious bur den. "He lias saved him!" shouted the courier at tho moment, as ho caught sight of Alexis, and then as he looked again be exclaimed: "My God, it is a woman! Men, men! to tho rescue!" The soldiers waited no longer. Tho fact that a woman was in danger seemed to awaken all that was manly In their natures and they rushed to tho rescue. Another moment and it would have been too late. A volley met the first of the fero cious, maddened brutes. The pack halted for a moment, and gave a long howl of rage. Another volley checked par qv ivw? (zm.?7wpr another forward movement. Alexis staggered along with bis burden. Two of the soldiers sprang to his side. Tho doors of the etape were thrown open. In another moment, bruised and bleeding and faint, Alexis Nazlmoff staggered Into the room; the courier held out his arms to receive tho sense less woman from her rescuer. Alexis, with a sigh of unutterable relief, breathed a prayer of thanks, and then as he gavo the courier the woman whose life he bad saved his brain reeled, the light faded from bis eyes, his knees trembled, a shudder passed through bis frame, and he fell at full length on the floor.

Smith, All rights resefTed cQ04'forA Alexis had ioied sufficiently to nue nnd wns supported by two of tho Cossacks. Tho Injuries of Alexis were for tunately slight. The fangs of the wolves had reached him in ono or two places on tho arms nnd on one cheek, but the latter proved to bo a mere scratch, though sufficient to draw blood, and tho clothing had protected the arms. In answer to eager In quiries he explained thnt ho did not see the faco of tho woman he had rescued, becauso just ns he reached her she almost foil Into his arms and in his mrugglo during tho retreat ho had not hoard her speak. But it wa3 the presence of Cobb so entirely unlooked for, and so inex plicable that furnished them a topic which kept them wondering for hours. That Cobb's presence had something to do with them, they lelt cot tain, but now that ho was here, how were thoy to let him know thnt they wore near. It Is the rule on tho highroad to tho mines for convoys to march two dns and rest ono. and as this was their resting place, they felt Mire that tho morning's light would bring some means of letting Cobb Know that they were in the stockade. But what hnd brought Cobb and tho baroness lor they felt sure It was tho baroness. Cobb having spoken of his wife to that out of the way place? That was tho puzzler, and It wns to acrount for that fact that both Alexis and Ivan taxed their Imagination. While they aro In suspense we will enlighten our readers. General Cobb, after his marriage to the baroness, found himself iu a posi tion where he could afford to give tip all tho business Interests that former ly occupied his time. From the mo ment Alexis had left St. Petersburg ho hnd but ono object in view that was to rescue his friend from the hor rors of Siberian exile, and If possible restore him to tho position from which a chain of adverse circum stances had so cruelly deposed htm. Or, it that were not possible, it was tho intention of Cobb, tho rescue of Alexis once effected, to take him to America, tho baroness having ex pressed a strong desire to give up her residence In Europe and make her home In tho country of her husband. Cobb's plans for tho rescue of Alexis were warmly seconded by his wife, and it was determined to mako an ef fort to effect the rescue of Ilda and Ivan at the same time as Alexis. The blow to the prido of Count Naz lmoff, who had seen his son sentenced like a common convict, had been a se vere one and shortly after his son had arrived in Siberia the count was seized by a severe illness, tho result ot tho shock he had suffered. On his recovery his feelings had undergone a murked change. The tenderness and sympathy shown him on every hand had softened his nature, and the hard pride had now given place to a pitiful yearning for tho son he had loved so well. Hence it was that when Gen. Cobb, having heard of Kirshkln's confession, and having brought influence to bear to verify the truth of the conspirator's story, ap peared before Count Nazlmoff to plead tho cause of his son, he met with a re ception the warmth of which pleased him. An imperial commissioner was sent to each of tho convicts captured In the Nihilist rendezvous. They were closely questioned as to the events that had taken place on that eventful night, and their stories, ono and all, served to exonerate Alexis and Olga and Ilda, and to lift from the shoul ders of Ivan the responsibility for any complicity in or sympathy with the ex treme Nihilists who sought the assas sination of the czar. So It was that after months of per sistent and diligent exertion GenernI Cobb had tho assurance that tho sub ject had at length reached tho czar, with a strong probability that the Im perial clemoncy so earnestly sought would not be denied. But even if his efforts In this direc tion failed, Cobb had made up his mind that ho would still succeed. Ho secured through tho American minis ter an imperial passport to Siberia, and a letter from tho authorities giv ing him, as an American traveler fa vorably disposed and friendly to tho Russian government, the right to visit prisons and other privileges not usual ly accorded. This letter, addressed to officials throughout Siberia, direct ed them to extend all aid and assist ance to General Cobb and his wife and her companion, Caroline Cobb, who were to travel across Siberia if need be. And beforo ho left St. Peters burg a passport for Caroline Cobb was In his possession. We pass over the long Journey of Cobb and his wife. After many ad entures and more hardships they reached Stralensk and thoro discov ered Ilda. Tho letters which Cobb had In his possession mado him a welcome guest at the houso of tho commandant at Stralensk and they had but llttlo d-ifflculty In obtaining a private conversation with Ilda. It wr.3 from Ilda they learned to thoir great delight that Ivan and Aloxis were at Chitka and that they could reach that place with comparative oasc. It was while on their Journey to Chitka that their sleigh was over turned and they wore attacked by the wolves almost within shouting dis tance of tho etape whore Karlscheff was In command. Karlscheff and Nicholas, after the doors of the stockade had closed nn the convicts, retuined to the hous Be on your guard, father." urged Nicholas, "jou havo mado a danger ous ouemy ot the courier, and the slightest mistake may piovo our ruin. Try to conciliate him nnythlng, bo there can bo no pretext for bis going to extremes. Think what would bo the consequences f ho should make a report to the cr.nr." Karlschcrr said nothing, lie knew ho hnd committed n grievous mistake in defying tho courier and he felt ill nt easo. Tho presence or Cobb and tho baroness, too, wns nn additional source of danger. Whnt It Cobb should discover tho prosenco ot Alexis! Thnt ho had not dono so nlready was llttlo shoit ot a mhncle. But If ho should discover him nnd appeal to tho cour ier for Alexis especially after Ataxia himself had won the henit of tho courier there was no question as to the result. Certainly tho cornier would never leave Alexis and Ivan iu his power. ymmmtmfmfammmmtrtaMimmiarrmKKKmaiWtm.

Katherino entered tho room. Sho hnd discovered tho Identity of Cobb nnd tho baroness. "Thoso people here," sho said, "threatens danger. We must bo on our guard all the time. A chanco word may betray us Into trouble thut will cost us dearly." "Olga?" asked KarischofT. "Sho is asleep," answered the countess, "and I would shed no tear if she never would wnke. Her cursed folly has helped to put us whero wo are. What Is your plan about about thorn?" she asked, pointing in tho di rection of tho convict quarters. "We nuiBt wait uutll tho courier departs. His presence " Karlscheff stoppod suddenly. The door leading to the sleeping apartments opened and the courier entered the room. Producing his notebook, tho courier in a peremptory tone demanded: "What is tho name of that bravo follow who saved the woman from tho wolves? ' "I do not know It," replied Karl scheff. "Then consult your lists and And out," was the sharp rejoinder. NIcholns saw that his father "was again getting on dnngerous ground. Ho determined to como to his as sistance. "I know the name," ho said, look ing meaningly at his father, "tho name is Alexis " "Alexis Pctroffsky," said Katherino. "I asked It from tho bravo follow be foro 1 bound his wound and gavo him some medicine." "Where Is ho now?" asked tho cour ier. "He is " began Nicholas. "Asleep soundly sleeping," snld Katherino; "he begged me not to dis turb him until morning." (To be continued.) MOTOR CARS OF HIGH SPEED. Spectators Able to See It Only Ninety Seconds as It Whirs By. Tho world has not realized yet tho full significance of tho historic Morion-fclde-Zosscn high speed electric ex periments conducted during 1901 and 1903. Speeds of 12G miles an hour mean something in the way of velocity and momentum. The track upon which the experl ments wore conducted Is straight, yet on Jt tho car, when running at full speed, was only In sight for a minute and a half. That Is to say, from tho moment the approaching car first be come visible on tho horizon, to the moment It disappeared in the oppo site diroctlon, less than ninety seconds elapsed. Spectators standing by the 3ldc of tho track were ablo to sec that men were in tho car, but it was impos sible for the eye to get sufficient Im pression to ullow any one to be recog nized. Despite tho use of powerful brakes tho car traveled over a mile, after their application, beforo coming to a standstill, so thnt alertness of tho en gineer in discovering obstacles on tho track would count for little. It Isn't probablo ho could discern such n inllo distant, and any application ot brakes within that distance would bo Inef fective. As Others Hear Us. A well known Oxford don was asked to speak into a phonograph, and was lntorosted In hearing tho reproduc tion.

Tho worthy man had heard himself as others hear b'm, that was all. H would bo a good thing for many ot us to study our method ot speaking through the me dium of a phonographic reproduction.
