MENT FOR WOMEN.”
Chattanooga Medicine Co.,
ON FASHION’S HIGHWAY
By FRANCES RIVERS
(Copyright, 1906, by Joseph B. Bowles.)
Toward five o clock, on a supremely
hot July day, Mr. Godfrey Boyne
strolled leisurely along the gravel
path of the promenade.
He loitered, seemingly at random,
making his way slowly between groups
of animated people, stopping for no
reason, and remained idly agaze over
the heads of the crowd on fashion's
At any rate, he thought, applying
this recollection as healing unction to
the scratches imprinted on his vanity
by the acid of such general forgetful
ness, Audrey has remembered; and he,
smiling, recalled the facility with which
intimacy with Lady Annandale had
been resumed; the friendly informal
ity with which she had reentered into
relations with him; the bewildering
immensity of her social influence; the
celebrity which, at first as the wife,
then as the widow, of a viscount, no
torious in career and memory for his
many vices, 'she had acquired.
He had taken himself to Fash
ion’s highway, the purpose of
joining Lady Annandale being less
distinct in his thoughts than the wish
to see her. So immersed was he in
reflection that he failed to notice that
a victoria had stopped opposite to
him. Suddenly a footman addressed
“I beg your pardon, sir,” said he,
“but her ladyship sent me to say that
she wishes to speak to you.”
Godfrey turned; Lady Annandale
was stepping from the carriage.
“You can go home,” said she to the
“Very good, my lady.”
Then she gave to Godfrey her hand.
“This place—” she glanced round at
the radiant prospect—“seems scarce
ly the spot suited to serious discus
sion. We might, perhaps, over there.”
So, side by side, Lady Annandale
and Mr. Godfrey Boyne walked across
the soft, green turf and established
themselves upon chairs under the
sweet-scented lime trees, whose shel
tering boughs masked them from ob
He beamed amiably round.
“I have brought you here, that you
may continue your last night's inter
rupted account of the woman with
whom you were in love,” said she.
"Was in love? It's absurd to use
the past tense. I am in love with her.
Love is not a state from which you
can recover as from an epidemic. I
am, of course, speaking of the real

Lady Annandale laughed. “Passion!
floes your real thing include that?”
“Passion is love's dregs, besides
being Cupid's pseudonym for the work
he is ashamed to acknowledge.”
“I had no idea I was speaking to
an expert; but how, may I ask, did
you come to study the subject so pro

I devoted some attention to the sci
She raised her eyebrows.
“Is that all you learned?”
"That, and to make money.”
“To make money?”
“Certainly. I'm a wealthy tea-plant
er of Ceylon.”
“A wealthy tea-planter, did you
say? But to return to your love,” she
“You can’t return to a thing you've
never parted from, can you?”
"Then you know more of the sub
“A great deal more.”
“Here it is. I see a boy and girl,
the joyful intimacy of their childhood
deepening into the poetry of youth—”
"And, of course, the girl knows that
the boy loves her?”
“Naturally; since not an hour of
the day passes but he tells her so.”
“Tells her? Surely not.”
“By every means in his power, ex
cept his tongue. He doesn't put it
into words, because he knows that to
do so would be hopeless if she doesn’t
understand without that."
“Don't you think she might make
a mistake if he says nothing?”
“But she must know that he dreams
his dream of the future, in which, hav
ing made a nest and lined it softly
with down, he will come to her and
say: ‘It awaits you.’ Then he hopes
that, with the gracious spirit mani
fest in all her bearing, the girl, with
love and tenderness shining from her
eyes, would, putting her hand in his,
say; ‘I am ready.’”
“Your vision is charming, idyllic;
but how about the girl and her dreary
days of waiting, for I suppose the boy
to have gone ofT into the world?”
“He had to go into it to fill his

her in words of his love.”
“You really think that his doing so
would have made any difference—
when all that he was then in a posi
tion to ask was faithfulness?”
Lady Annandale sighed.
“This particular girl was probably
brought up to marry, as, had she
been a boy, she would have been
brought up to some profession. In
your vision, what became of her?”
“She fulfilled what I see you con
sider to have been her destiny.”
“Yes; she married a peer.”
“And was happy ever after, accord
ing to the formula?”
“I suppose so. Isn’t every woman
happy who achieves rang and is an

was his own?”
“No; he didn’t blame her, but for
a time he was heartbroken.”
“Did he lose sight of her altogeth
“Not altogether; for when, in the
fullness of time, she was again free,
he came back to her.”
“And he found her the same?
“This woman's beauty is a fact of
an astonishing order, and she is ten
times more lovely even than she was.”
“Her nature. Has that deterior
ated?” Lady Annandale spoke earnest
ly; her face was grave and sad.
“To test that is very simple.”
“I have but to say to her: ‘Marry
me, and let us together renew the
simplicity of our youth.’ The nest—
you remember that I spoke of a
She bowed her head.
“Is fairly lined. Will you with it
accept my heart and name?”
Lady Annandale's arms of aggres
sion, even of defense, were possibly
close at hand, but she made no at
tempt to reach them, and was not
maladroit in thus leaving them un
touched: for this harmlessness of at
titude on her part induced Godfrey to
lay aside his buckler of suspicion, and
in reply to her “Then this visit of
yours is, I take it, a tribute—a small
tribute to youthful sentiment, to a
dead love?” he, as lightly rejoined:
"By no means. Love, amongst the
other attributes which I have enu
merated, resembles a sachet, with
the scent of which we are so familiar

shake it up anew.”
Then, seriously, he added: “Oh, my
dearest, we have lost ten years!”
“You would wish to take me to Cey

“Of course, if—”
If Godfrey had come to her with the
intention she believed, or even if
this intention had teen caused by the
spell of proximity, he must be no
longer mistaken in her meaning. “I
couldn’t go.” she interrupted.
“Then we will leave Ceylon to take
care of itself,” he said, carelessly, tak
ing no more notice ol her words than
if she had not said them.
“You seriously mean that?”
“I was never more serious in my
life. I will abandon that nest and
make another over here.”
"Then we come to the second count
—your heart. Are you quite, quite
sure that it is negotiable flesh, not in
a battered condition?”
“You needn’t; for, oddly enough, I
‘ You are the only woman I have
ever cared for.”
“Does not every man tell every
woman that?” She looked into his
eyes and laughed.
Then, across this chasm Lady Ann

had been able to do in weeks of ardu

One of the most famous of Ameri

of our marine was the Cope line,
which ran between Philadelphia and
Liverpool, says the author of “Me

line John Randolph of Roanoke deter
mined to go to Russia, when he had
been appointed minister to that coun
try by President Jackson.
Entering the office of the company
in Philadelphia, he . said to a clerk in
his usual grandiloquent manner;
“Sir, I wish to see Thomas P. Cope.”
He was shown to Mr. Cope’s office.
‘I am John Randolph of Roanoke,”
he said. “I wish to take passage to
Liverpool in one of your ships.”
If he expected to be tendered a pass
he was grievously disappointed.
“I am Thomas Cope,” replied the
head of the line. “If thee gets aboard
the ship and selects thy stateroom and
will pay $150 thee may go.”—Youth’s

not by constant medication, but by careful avoidance of every medicine of an injuri

nature, only those of known excellence should be used; remedies which are pure
and wholesome and truly beneficial in effect, like the pleasant laxative remedy
Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. Syrup of Figs has
come into general favor in many millions of well informed families, whose estimate
of its quality and excellence is based upon personal knowledge and use.
Syrup of Figs has also met with the approval of physicians generally, because
they know it is wholesome, simple and gentle in its action. We inform all reputa
ble physicians as to the medicinal principles of Syrup of Figs, obtained, by an
original method, from certain plants known to them to act most beneficially and
presented m an agreeable syrup in which the wholesome Californian blue figs are
used to promote the pleasant taste; therefore it is not a secret remedy and hence
we are free to refer to all well informed physicians, who dc not approve of patent
medicines and never favor indiscriminate self-medication.
Please to remember and teach your children also that the genuine Syrup of Figs
always has the full name of the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.—plainly
printed on the front of every package and that it is for sale in bottles of one size
•y; Aany deaIer offers any other than the regular Fifty cent size, or having
pnnted thereon the name of any other company, do not accept it. If you fail to get
