OLD FOLKS SAY
The basis of treating sickness has not
changed since Dr. Caldwell left Medical
College in 1875, nor since he placed os
the market the laxative prescription lie
had need in his practice.
He treated constipation, biliousness,
headaches, mental depression, indigestion,
sour stomach and other indispositions
entirely by means of simple vegetable
laxatives, herbs and roots. These are
still the basis of Dr. Caldwell’s Syrup
Pepsin, a combination of senna and
other mild herbs, with pepsin.
The simpler the remedy for constipa
tion, the safer for the child and for you.
And as you can get resulta in a mild
and safe way by using Dr. Caldwell’s
Syrup Pepsin, why take chances with
A bottle will last several months, and
all can use it. It is pleasant to the
taste, gentle in action, and free from
narcotics. Klderly people find it ideal.

there and stopped. “I’m sor

chance to see you,” he said dif

‘‘No time,” he averred.

forget that 1”
Her fingers, he noted as they
clasped his, were cool and
strong. In thirty days or less.
... It was pleasant to have
that for bon voyage. He won
dered what manner of good-bye
he would get from France*.
Jimmy had not seen Frances
Lassiter since leaving her in the
den in her home the afternoon
before, with Austin Rogers
staying behind. When he had
left, the two seemed perfectly
to understand each other, per
perfectly in accord without the
need of speech. Jimmy had
even felt, before he went, as
though he were the intruder
into the scene.
Vaguely troubled, he passed
by the steps of his club and con
tinued to the edge of the park,
toward Frances’ house. It was
an afternoon in early June, and
across the street birds chirped
messages to each other through
the growing dusk. Jimmy felt
strangely out of place amid the
After all, he did not belong
here, no matter how he tried.
His mind was elsewhere, grop
ing for that elusive something
which life had ever held out to
him and ever drawn away at
tantalizing intervals. Something
. . . something that made for
happiness. He was nearest to a
realization of it when he was
alone, at the farthest tips of the
World, he remembered.
In Frances Lassiter some hint
of surcease to his troubled won
derings seemed possible. She
was, as he had known, every
thing that the harder years had
starved him for. She was dis
tant, a height, he had known.
Yet distant heights had never
been insurmountable to him. He
had conquered them before;
and now, though his every feel
ing for her was of reverence
and humility before the daz
ling beauty of her, he knew
himself capable of fighting a
good fight for what he wanted.
Only now—now he was won
dering again. The old troubled
fears had returned. Was it
love—love with quiet and calm
and an established position that
was the answer to his seeking?
Or would his wanderer’s soul
never find rpst ?
In other words, he asked him
self savagely, was it he—or
Frances who fell short?
He thought of Natalie, and
wished he might have had the
opportunity to see more of her.

he gathered. He liked 1. r cool,
level eyes and a certain unhur
ried, throaty tone in her voice.
It was regretable, he reflected,
and then thought again ot
Frances as he reached the steps
of her home.
It was for Frances that he
was doing this thing: risking
everything he owned—and
She was alone, and Jimmy
was surprised. Her greeting
was cool; none of the raillery
had gone from her manner.
“I've been thinking of Phil
eas Fogg, Jimmy,” she laughed.
“Have you decided how you’re
going to beat Austin T”
He dropped into a chair.
“Haven’t had time*,” he ac
knowledged. “I’ve been too
busy with my own plans to
think of him. I came in to say
good-bye, and—to get any good
wishes you might have for me.”
She hesitated, her face avert
ed so that he could marvel at
her classical profile against the
shadows behind her.
“Good wishes!” she repeat
ed. “You know you always
have my good wishes, Jimmy.
Except,” she added with a lit
tle laugh, “when you’re too
serious. Don’t be serious, old
dear—until you come hack.”
“Till I come back!” he
moved closer to her, his voice
lowered huskily. “And when
I come back—shall I be able to
ask you then* Frances—what I
want to know!”
“I haven’t promised," she
said gravely. “I detest prom
ises. I just want you to do
your best, Jimmy—for me. Will
you do that!"
His jjaw was set sternly. ‘‘I
think I’d do anything—for
you," he said earnestly. “Any
thing. Only—don’t keep me
waiting too long, dear. I love
you, you see," he added quiet
ly, “and if I shouldn’t come
back, I think I ought to know."
She looked up as he arose,
and held out her hand.
“When you come back, you’ll
know,” she said. “In the mean
time, may the best man win!”
“May the best man win," he
repeated gravely, and his lips
just brushed the tips of her fin
gers before he turned.
She hadn’t wished him luck,
he remembered, when he was
outside again, and wondered if
that were because she might
have thought it not sporting to
do so. At any rate, the last
good-bye had been said. Ahead
of him lay a great deal of work
and not a little danger. Unless
he won, lie was a pauper, and
France’s heart was farther off
But besides that, it would
mean a certain disgrace to be
beaten. Ilogers posed as a
sportsman. Jimmy, with all his
knowledge of the world, would
be condemned as a fool in tin*

be hailed as a sportsman and
gamester; the millions which
helped him would be forgotten.

brought up with a start, his

And they called it sporting,
called Rogers a sportsman!
His muscles tensed, his pulses
leapt with Ridden ungovernable
anger as he got a glimpse of his
rival's face, flushed and tri

cocktail glass. Just as the
container reached Rogers’ lips,

"You confounded rotter! ” he
exclaimed, in a tense, leashed
voice. "Put down that glass!”
Rogers stared at him for a
second, as though puzzled. His
face worked slowly. The oth

out a word, resting their glasses
on the bar. THe smile was
freezing on Rogers’ features as
he came to realize slowly the
meaning of Jimmy’s words. He
took a step backward, the glass
si ill on a level with his lips.
Then, suddenly, he laughed.
"Do I understand,” he de
manded, "that you gave an Cflf

Rogers gave a short, sneer

turned from one to the other
of his companions with the glass
"We were drinking,” he
said. "Continue, gentlemen!”
There was a short, breathless
exclamation—a quick move.
In the next second, the cock
tail glass lay shattered on the
floor and the liquid flew.
Rogers cursed. There was
an oath on his lips as he drew
back his heavy fist. It made
straight for Jimmy’s face. But
it was not swift enough. Al
most in the same instant, the
slightest part of a second ear
lier, Jimmy’s own fist crashed
forward, straight from the
shoulder, while his left hand
met Rogers’s blow and let it
slip sidewise harmlessly.
Rogers grunted as the knuck
les of the rival’s hand caught
him at the end of a corkscrew
twist, in the solar plexus. He
sagged, stumbled, caught wild

dropped heavily to the floor.

What is old age physiologically?
One school of thought holds that
old age is a health rather than a
time proposition. There are decrep
titude and invalidity, but not old
age. If infections, poisons, strains,
excesses and deficiencies could be
kept away we would live much long

He had planned the best route

his rival was using the same
one, though Rogers would not
