    Chronic Gastritis
Health Talk No. 20 by Drs. State.
If a diagram wore drawn of
the nerves that supply vigor and
tone to the stomach it would
show that those nerves come
from one trunk nerve that loaves
the backbone at a point just op
posite the lower end of the
shoulder blades.
When from bad habits of sit
ting stooped, or from any acci
dental jar or injury, the joints
of the backbone at this point
become out of alignment there
is pressure upon the stomach
nerve, and the suffering depend
ing upon the degree of pressure,
is destined to many pains and
much indigestion with other
consequent ails and ills.
NO CHARGE There is no
charge for consultation and it
places you under no obligation.

Ho clutched It as It wan headed for
the ground, glanced up and met the
flashing eyes and smiling fuco of u
lady half concealed by the shrub
bery. Then, tho latter darted away,
pursued by a little girl who, her apron
full of flowers, pelted her out of view
with tho fragrant (lowers.
Somehow the nllml of Bruno was set
In a turmoil. Had the lady In the
floral battle alined ut Iter child op
ponent, or at himself? At all events,
the episode set his niliiil In a whirl.
He had reached thirty the sumo Im
pressible Idealist that be hud been at
twenty. He treasured tho rose und
dreamed dreams. Ho passed the same
place slowly tho next day. Half ob
scured by some lilacs wus a feminine
form. Bruno slightly raised his hut.
Unmistakably In rusponse there was
the flutter of a hundkerchlef, lie was
noticed. It must be the lady of the
rose bnttlel A vast ferment of senti
ment and romanticism took place In
his soul, The next morning It was
raining, but from uu upper window in
the house, a white hand moved as If in
notice or greeting.
Pusshig down the street the next
day with his close friend, Dale Arm
strong, Hruuo clutched his arm fever
ishly and Indicating a lady crossing
from the house now his center of at
traction to an automobile, and whose
face was that of the lady of the
roses, he uttered tumultuously :
"Armstrong, you know everybody In
town. Who Is that girl?"
"Girl?" repeated Dale. She Is a
married woman Mrs. Walter Martin.
Husband and child. What's your In
terest?" "Nothing," he faltered In a sort of a
collapsing groan. "Love blasted I my
Ideal vanished! Only a flirt I" he told
himself In a suppressed undertone. It
was the rude blighting of u possible
romance In Its building that so crushed
Bruno. He had woven a fairy fabric
of Ideality and It was humiliating, de
pressing, disappointing to have It thus
sent asunder. Armstrong, coming In
to his olllce the next day, found him
seated, morose and hollow-eyed nt the
window, staring out blankly at nothing
ness, "What's the trouble, Bruno?" be ball
ed In bis cheery off-hand way.
"Oh, tired of life and Its false prom
ises," returned the other dismally. 1

experiences. Tell von. I'm almost sul-

"That so?" milled Armstrong bland

n real glittering stiletto, a true and
honest, (lendly rovolver and a bottle
of 'sure tiling cyanide. Want to make
n choice?"
"Thank you, no," answered Bruno
sourly, nettled at the ImdlHHgOi good
nnturod as it was. "If 1 ever stef) off
abruptly the water route Is the surest
and cheapest."
There seemed to be n sntlfiictlO In

"Oh, for one true sympnthetlCouU"

It was warm and he took off bis coat.
He wiH restless nnd Irritated and
began pacing up and down. He got
directly up to the edge of the em
bankment overlooking the stream.
"All, placid waters, not so cruel as
a harsh, disappointing world," he ut

"No no surely you are not think

Bruno started. A slender, winsome
woman bad sefzed his arm. " He did
not know that it was she who had
thrown the lilac spray In his path and
had followed him, She was fair of
face and graceful of form, although
as far up In the twenties as himself,
but there was a gentle sympathy In
her eyes that somehow won x.n him.
"If you menu I was go' n Jutnj.

"Oh, It was you!" oxeln.lmed Bruno.
"I haven't confided in my sister.

Weston, "but It has been very pleas

She bung her head now. Bruno took
another look nt her. understanding his
error as to the roses. He pitied her

"Not as long as you care about It,"
responded Bruno tenderly,

Restored After Mysterious Disappear
ance of More Than a Quarter
of a Century.
Exactly u quarter of n century, to
the day, after tho old boll that rang
In the church on Chenlere Camlnnda
went down In the awful storm that
wrecked the settlement, It rang again
on Grand Isle last October as the party
that came to dedicate the new church
on the Island stepped ashore from tho
boat, says the New Orleans Picayune.
This boll has an Interesting history.
Father D'Esplnosn brought to the
beach the costly plate of his family.
But on Oamlnnda beach there was
little use for costly silver, so It wns
sold and the proceeds used to purchase
a bell for the church.
After the storm tho bell lay neglect
ed In the barren sand. Archbishop
Chapelle ordered tho bell returned to
tho Cnmlnadn people.
Then came a mysterious event. One
morning the bell disappeared and for
all these years Its location was un
known, except perhaps to thos vtho
had secreted It.

A hunter, more boastful than sue-,
cessful, once Joined a bear-hunting ex
pedition. During the hunt, as this
man was resting by the side of a
rock and talking with another hunter,
he remarked":
"If there's anything I dote on, It's
bear. A slice of bear steak nicely
done Is perfect 1"
"Well," sold his companion, looking
up, "I'm hanged If there Isn't a boar
now 1"
The man who "doted on hear" looked
up, saw an Immense grizzly standing
on the top of the rock, gave a yell and
leaped Into the woods nnd disappeared.
His companion soon overtook him, nnd
said to the fugrtlvo as he came up:
"I thought you liked hear?"
"Well, I do," snld the runaway; "but
thnt one ain't done enough !"
Whalers In the Sky.
The shooting of a whale with a ma

American aviator oft the Paclllc const,
nenr Sun Diego, Cnl., a few days ago,
opens up a new Held of possibility In
the whaling industry. It suggests
whaling ships of the future cruising
forth with on equipment of airplanes
and a complement of nvlators and
skilled gunners to gcout for and bag
these monsters of the deep. If It seems

Imposing Ceremonies That Used to
Mark Their Coming to the Vari
ous County Assizes.
The stately ceremonies which liar
attended the coming of an English
Judge to the county assizes, three
times in each yenr, mny be accounted
for by the fuct that the Judge, on
these occasions, represented the king,
nnd for the time being was accorded
courtesies not very different from
those which would be offered the king
In the quaint old city of Chester,
which all traveling Americans know
better, perhnps, than any city of Eng
land outside of London, It was tho
custom, before railroads were known,
for the high sheriff of the county to
meet the Incoming Judge with a body
of men, armed with javelins, at the
border of "the county which ho was
leaving, In order to conduct him In
safety to the pluce in which he was
to reside during the term of tho
Cheshire court. This came to be a
very Imposing ceremony. On one oc
casion, CO years ago, the ofllce of high
sheriff was filled by a baronet, who
awaited the Judge at the couitfy bor
ders with 18 Javelin men, 40 servants,
100 tenants, his entire family (Oiling
stately carriages), trumpeters In two
detachments, two prominent editors In
their carriages, and several of the
county gentry. He'en Marshall Pratt

Scientist Explains Why Men Who Do
Great Things Have to Have
Abundant Leisure.
It was said by Ilelmholtz, on his
seventieth birthday, according to Dr.
Graham I.usk, in an address printed
in Science, that a great idea had nover
come to him when he was at his desk,
nor when he was tired, nor after tak
ing a glnss of wine, but usually when
he was walking In the garden musing
of other things. Dr. Lusk goes on :
"The scientist must have leisure to
think over the problems which offer
and he must have a certnln discrimi
nation In order to distinguish between
the things which nre worth doing nnd
those which are not. To do this re
quires a certain delay In action In
order thnt plans may be matured. Tho
Individual who can not he happy un
less he Is nt work at full power all
the time Is much less likely to ac
complish successful scientific work
thun he who will not commence a
research until he has satisfied himself
that It Is worth doing. It Is not to be
denied thnt this essential qualification
of scientific life Is frequently regard
ed with scorn by the busy practltlonor
of medicine, who gives himself no
time either for thought or study."
