DR. CALDWELL'S GUIDE
TO GOOD HEALTH
Tho natural tendency of people In
this buay age to demand of the di
gestives organs more than nature' In

ly results In throwing the entire di
gestive system Into disorder. When
the stomach falls to freely digest and
distribute that which is eaten, the
bowels become clogged with a mass
of wasto and refuse which ferments

are gradually forced Into the blood,
causing distress and often serious 111
Or. W. 1). Caldwell says that If the
bowels aro kept regular there will bo
much less sickness, nnd prescribes a
combination of simple laxatlvo herbs
with pepsin that Is most effective In
rcllovlng any congestion of matter in
tho bowels. This compound can bo
bought In any drug store under the
name of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin,
nnd costB only 60 cents a bottle. It Is
mild In Its action, pleasant to the
taste and positive In effect, a dose at
night bringing relief next morning,
naturally and without griping or oth

CHAPTER XXXIV (Continued.)
Hetty Malroy and Carrlngton bad
ridden Into Halolgh to take leave of
tholr friends. They had watched the
stage from sight, bad answered the
last majestic salute tho Judgo had giv
en them across tho swaying top of
the coach before the first turn of the
road hid It from eight, and then they
had turned their horses' heads in the
direction of Holle Plain.
"Bruco, do you think Judge Price
will ever be able to accomplish nil he
hopes to?" Hetty asked when they
had left the town behind. She drew
In her horse as she spoke, nnd they
went forward nt a walk under tho
splendid arch of the forest and over a
carpet of vivid loaves.
"I reckon he will, Betty," respond
ed Carrlngton. Unfavorable as had
been his original estimate of the
Judge's character, evonts had greatly
"He really seems quite suro, doesn't
ho?" said Betty.
"There's not a doubt in his mind."
He was still at Belle Plain, living
In what nnd been Waro'a otflco, while
tho Cavendishes were domiciled at
tho big house. Ho had arranged with
tho Judge to crop a part of that hope
ful gentleman's land the very next
season; the fact that a lawsuit Inter
vened between tho Judge and posses
sion seemed a trifling matter, for Car
rlngton had become lnrected with the
Judge's point of view, which did not
admit of the possibility of failure; but
he had not yet told Betty of his plans.
Time enough for that when he left
His silence concerning the futurri
bad caused Betty much thought. She
wondered If he sttll intended going
south into the Purchase; she was not
sure but It was the dignified thing for
him to do. She was thinking of this
now as they went forward over the
rustling leaves, and at length she
turned in the saddle and faced him.
"I am going to miss Hannibal
dreadfully yes, and the Judge, and
Kr. Yancy 1" sho began.
"1 am to bo missed, too, am I, Bet
t?" he Inquired, leaning toward her.
"You, Bruce? Oh, I shall miss
jnru, too, dreadfully but then, per.
htps In five years, when you come
"Five years I" cried Carrlngton, but
he understood something of what was
passing in her mind, and laughed
shortly. "Flvo years, Betty?" he re
peated, dwelling on the numeral,
Betty hesitated and looked thought
ful. Presently she stole a surrepti
tious glance at Carrlngton from undor
her long lashes, and went on slowly,
as though sho were making careful
choice of her words.
''When you come back In three
years, Bruce "
Carrlngton still regarded her llxed
ly. There was a light In his black
eyes that seemed to 'penetrate to the
most secret recesses of her heart and
'Three years, Betty?" he repeated
Betty, her eyes cast down, twisted
her rein nervously between her slim,
white fingers, but Carrington's steady
glance never loft her - sweet face,
framed by its halo or bright hair. She
stole another look at him from be
neath her dark lashes.
"Threo years, Betty?" he prompted.
"nruco, don't stare at me that way,
It makes me forget what I was going
to say I Whon you come back next
year" and then sho lifted her eyes
to his and he saw that they were full
of sudden tears. "Bruce, don't go
away don't go away at all"
Carrlngton slipped from the saddle
and stood at her side.
"Do you moan that, Betty?" he
asked. He took her hands loosely In
his and relentlessly considered her
crimsoned face. "I reckon It will al
ways be right hard to refuse you any
thinghere is one settler the Pur
chase will never get!" and he laughed
"It was the Purchase you were go
ing there!" she cried.
"No, I wasn't Betty; that notion
died Its natural death long ago. When
we are sure you will bo Bare at Belle
Plain with Just the Cavendishes, 1
am going Into Raleigh to wait as best
I can until spring." Ho spoke so
gravely that she asked in quick alarm.
"And then, Bruco what?"
"And then Oh, Betty, I'm starv
ing" All In a moment he lifted her
slender figure in his arms, gathering
her close to him. "And then, this
and this and this, sweetheart and
more and oh, Betty! Betty!"
1 The End and the Beginning.
When Murrell was brought to trial
his lawyers wero able to produce a
host of witnesses whose sworn testl-
mony showed that so simple a thing
as perjury had no terrors for them.
His fight for liberty waa waged in and
out of court with Incredible bitter
ness, and, as Judge and Jury were
only human, the outlaw escaped with
the relatively light sentence of twelve
years' Imprisonment; he died, how
ever, before the expiration of his
The Judge, when he returned to
Raleigh, resumed bis own name ot
Turbervllle, and he allowed It to be
known that he -would not be offended
by the prefix of General. During his
absence he bad accumulated a wealth
of evidence of undoubted authenticity,
with the result that his claim against
the Fentress estate was sustained by
the courts, and when The Oaks with

Its stock and slaves was offered for
sale, ho, as tho principal creditor,
was able to buy It In.
Ono of his first acts after taking
possession or the property was to
have Mahaffy relnterred in the grove
of oaks below his bedroom windows,
and he marked the spot with a great
square or granite. The Judge, visibly
shaken by his emotions, saw tha
massive boulder go Into place.
"Harsh and rugged like the nature
or him who lies beneath It but en
during, too, as he was," ho murmured.
He turned to Yancy and Hannibal, and
added: "You will lay me beside him
when I die."
Then whon the bitter struggle came
and he was wrenched and tortured by
longings, his strength was In remem
bering his promise to the dead man,
and it was his custom to go out under
tho oaks and pace to and fro beside
Mahalfy's grave until be had gained
the mastery or himself. Only Yancy
and Hannibal knew how fierce the
conflict was he waged, yet In the end
he won that best earned or all vic
tories, the victory over himself.
"My salvation has been a costly
thing; It was bought with the blood
of my friend," he told Yancy.
It was Hannibal's privilege to give
Cavendish out of the vast Qulntard
tract such a farm as the earl had never
dreamed of owning even In his most
fervid moments or imagining; and he
abandoned all idea of going to Eng
land to claim his title. At the Judge's
suggestion he named the place Earl's
Court. He and Polly were entirely
satisfied with their surroundings, and
never ceased to congratulate them
selves that they had left Lincoln coun
ty. They relt that their friends, the
Carrlngtona at Bolle Plain, though un
titled people, were still ot an equal
rank with themselves; while as for
the Judge, they doubted If royalty It
self laid It any over him.
Mr. ' Xancy accepted his changed
fortunes with philosophic composure.
Technically he filled tho position of
overseer at The Oaks, but the -Judge's
activity was so great that this posi
tion was largely a sinecure. The most
arduous work he performed was
spending bis wagos.

living, for, after all, life was a, game

SHOULD BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY
Childish Mind, Groping In Darkness,
Is Craving for Information That
Is Denied It.
Every trace of useful Information
Is carefully concealed from the very
young child. A rattle, or at most a
rubber doll. Is Its only plaything. As
it grows older It Is very slowly and
gradually Introduced to the various
forms of tho animal kingdom. Of the
mysteries of numbers and of lan
guages it has as yet no conception.
Its constant questions "are for the
most part answered "humorously"
and hence Incorrectly, or they are not
answered at all. This eternal "hu
mor" is moat galling or all. Why
should a human Infant be such an Ir
resistible Joke? The lower animals
take their young seriously end train
them from the start with a very defi
nite purpose in view. Yet their pos
sibilities are infinitesimal as com
pared with those of the average baby.
And we sit calmly by and enjoy the
"humor" of childhood and Insist that
the child Is enjoying itself also, even
though its little soul may be thirsting
for Information which is laughingly
denied It And we continue to put
oft the Inevitable day when the child
will have to take life seriously and
hence, according to our tradition,
One Important point which is quite
overlooked by the upholders of the
brainless child Is the fact that non
sense and silliness are Just as taxing
to the Infant mind as useful Informa
tion would be. It requires no more
mental effort to realise that A is A
than to grasp the extraordinary fact
that a mass of brownish softness is
a "fussy ittle Teddy bear, yes it Is."
In fact, the letter A has a distinct ad
vantage. And at a more advanced
age it is certainly less puzzling to be
told that five and five make ten than
to have one's own respectable pink
toes described as a series or pigs go

rious other activities or life. Slg
