Elinor. The chill, gray dawn crept
through the casement. Birds twittered.
The melancholy that comes after a
night's watching gripped the hearts of
the nurses. Elinor reared that the
grayness was creeping over her moth
er's face. At the window she listened.
Ah! Wheels on the gravel!
"Mother!" she cried In agony. "Walt

Joy lighted the fine old face.
I was slipping into the dark, laddie.
I waited for you," she murmured, faint

Then Jack took possession of the
room, sending doctor and nurse to
rest. Alone with his mother, he
stroked her hands. Contented, she
slept. For hours neither stirved. With
a wealth of love and gratitude her son
watched. When the nurse relieved
him he thought of Agnes, resting un
der the home roof.
He found the family at breakfast.
Agnes was silent. Dr. Montgomery
talked of the patient Elinor asked no
questions. The old doctor, quick to
read faces, saw trouble ahead. Agnes
left the room. A maid let a door
bang. Both men started nervously.
Those who had been calm in a great
crisis were unnerved. Jack followed
Agnes to the library. It would be
soothing to rest on her sympathy.
"Dearest," he said softly, laying a
caressing hand on the bright brown
"Why did you not come. Jack?

was husky. With a gesture habitual
to him when touched deeply, he cov

As Elinor spoke Dr. Raymond
sprang to his feet. ,
"Wait for me here, please."
Quickly he crossed the lawn to

' "Not my Jack. It's all" over."
"It's not over, Agnes.. Listen!"
Again he told the story.
"He would keep his plighted word,,
Agnes. He would not see me dishon

enough to sacrifice mother, wife, hap-',

"How can I look him in the face
again?" the girl cried, sadly. "I failed
him. I doubted. Lately I have known'
it but I was too proud to call him'
back. Tell the world! Never! He
would not permit such treachery."
"Ah! Here they come."
Elinor and Jack crossed the smooth;
green turf and stood before them. Dr.
Raymond sprang to his feet Grasp

"Confessions are in order. Jack. Let
Agnes do her share. Come, Elinor."

The Good Word
That Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery is to-day and hasi for over
40 years, been the standard Blood-puri-fyer,
Stomach Strengthener and Liver
Invigorator sold by druggists. It's not
a secret nostrum but, a medicine of
known composition a medicine so
good that the best physicarfs prescribe
it knowing that its ingredients, which
are printed on its outside wrappers and
attested under oath, are the best known
to medical science for the diseases for
which it is advised.
The oTpnr siircpss of Tit. Pierce's
CJnlden Mpdiral Tliscoverv in curins weak stomachs, wasted bodies,
weak lungs, and obstinate and lingering coughs, is based on the rec
ognition of the fundamental truth that "Golden Medical Discov
ery" supplies Nature with body-building, tissue-repairing, muscle
making materials, in condensed and concentrated form. With this
help Nature supplies the necessary strength to the stomach to di
gest food, build up the body and thereby throw off lingering ob
stinate coughs. The "Discovery" re-establishes the digestive knd
nutritive organs in sound health, purifies and enriches the blood,
' and nourishes the nerves in short establishes sound vigorous health.
