A Sta From Boyhood. '
(From ho ItcU Wing. Minn., Itorutllcan.)

Goodhue County, Minn., to a Republican
representative, "and ns you can see I
am not very large of stature When I
was eleven years old 1 became afflicted
with n sickness which baffled the ilk VI I j

not taken suddenly 111 but on the con
trary I can hardly state the exact time
when It began. The first symptoms

was of course a child and
never dreamed of the sufferings
In store for me. I complained to
my parents and they concluded that In
Ume I would outgrow my trouble, but
When they heard me groaning during
ny sleep they became Thoroughly
alarmed. Medical advice -whs sought
but to no avail, I grew rapidly worse
and was Boon unable to move about and
finally became confined continually to
my bed. The bust doctors that could be
liad were consulted, but Hid nothing for
me. I 'tried various kinds of extensively
advertised patent medicines with but
the ame result.
"For twelve long years I was thus a
iifferer In .constant agony without re

Pale People. Like a drowning man

'not to hope so 'much) but If possible to
ease my pain.
"I bought a box of the pills and they
Beemed to do me good. I felt encour
aged and continued their use. After
taking six boxes I was up and able to
walk around the house. I have not felt
Bd well for thirteen years as during the
past year. Only one year have I taken
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I am able
now to do chores and attend to light
"Doll hesitate to let you publish what
I have said? No. Why should I? It Is
the truth and I nm only too glad to let
other sufferers know my experience. It
may help "those whose cup of misery Is
as full to-day as mine was In the past."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, In a
condensed form, all the elements neces-
sary to give new life and richness to the
bloo'd and restore shattered nerves.
'They build up the blood, and restore the
glow of health to pale and sallow cheeks.
Pink Pills are sold In boxes (never in

for $2.50, and may be had of all drug

Dr. Max Nordnu writes a "Reply to
My Critics" in the August number of
;.the Century. His book on "Degcnern
tion'lluis called out a lnrge amount of
simply abusive criticism, and while he
pays his respects to such writers, he
gives serious answers to several objec
tions.which have been urged ngainst
his theories. Dr. Xordon thinks that
the-prascnt epidemic of hysteria and
degeneration is due to the over-exertion
of ithe last sixty years: and that,
while it is not the first .phenomenon of
its kind, :it is more dangerous than the
previous. ones because it has gained a
far greater headway.

One of the most striking contributions
is by Jacob D. Cox on iiow Judge 11 car

HAT debt was an
affair of lone stand
ing, for It had been
mad" years before
Jack Towner's
birth, so that It
could not be looked
upon as a strictly
personal m a 1 1 er
with himself.
His father, and
Park Wright's had
had trouble years
ago over a piece of land down near the
swamps upon the flats below.
The stream, which had been used as a
boundary line was really the Innocent
prime cause of the mischievous burden,
If they had looked at It In that light;
but they did not.'nnd when, after a big
flood, the fickle stream forsook Its old
bed for a new one on the Towner side,
the wrath of Jack's father knew no
bounds, because Park's father took ad
vantage of Its shifting, and laid claim
to the fertile corner which had thus
been transferred to his side.
Of course Jack's father had felt him
self wronged, and he went to law about
It; but Park's father won the suit, and
the costs, as well as the loss, fell upon
Mr. Towner.
The bit of land was not worth the
quarrel and the hard feelings, but Mr.
Towner considered his n righteous In
dignation, and he nursed It a Ufe-tlme.
It grew, as such things will, until
each family, feeling sure It was the ag
grieved party, held only bitterness
and hate for the other.
Jack's father had declared he would
pay Jason Wright back for the theft, ns
he termed It, nnd so every opportunity
for suits for damages was Indulged In,
sometimes with success upon one side,
sometimes upon the other, but In each
case with a growth of 'the bitter feel
ings; and the debt, In Mr. Towner's
heart, had a heavy weight of Interest
added to it.
It was too heavy, In fact, for two boys
to shoulder, as did Park and Jack when
their fathers died and they took up the
cudgels of the old light.
Jack was thinking over It one lnte
September morning, ns he saw Park
Saunter by contemptuously. Hinging a
stone at his dog.
"Poor Bruno!" said Jack. "Every
thing he does only adds to the debt. He
thinks he can push me aside even In
boating and base ball; but I'll be square
with him yet," he ended, fiercely, stalk
ing gloomily back to the bouse.
"It would "be better If we did not live
here," said his mother, anxiously look
ing nt him; ".this old trouble has made
you so cross and bitter. I wish you
would let the matter go."
"Let It go, as If it were nil right?" he
exclaimed. "Never! When 1 have paid
him back for it, 1 will let It drop, not be
fore." "When you 'have done a -wrong. It will
not make it right," she wearily an
swered. "I wish It were settled."
"Well, -when I get a good chance, It
will be," he replied, determinedly, as he
left the room.
A minute later he looked In again.
"I am going down to the flat hunting
snipe. Won't be home till late," 'he said,
and disappeared again.
Neither he .nor his companion, Jim
Peters, had bagged a 'bird, after a
couple of hours' wading about over the
marshy land, whlch.Jtae stream, swollen
by late rains, had ovorilowji until It was
a miniature lake.
The only bird hit "by them hod fallen
beyond reach and was sailing down the
"Gone" down io ilodge In that old wil
low, I suppose," imuttered Jack. "We
may as well go home."
Bang! went a -gun just then -from the
opposite side of the marsh, as It seemed.
"Most likely irt Js Park. He never
hears my gun without getting out his.
He's down toy the gorge, I expect. That
has drifted right down to him. Every
thing seems to go straight Into his
hands now tout It won't always be so."
Bang! The gnn was fired again.
"Game's lively," remarked Jim, "But
whoever It la, he had 'bettor "be getting
back. The water Is rising mighty fast.
Let's be going."
Bang! bang! The reports followed
each other In quick succession.
"Can't be he's killing anything. Some
thing must be up," Jack remarked.
"Yes: water's up. and It's going to be
higher. We'd better be getting out of
this before we have to swim,"
Jim set the example by wading oft
toward the mainland, holding his gun
out of the water.
"Current Is setting In strong, too," he
observed, as he stemmed along. Jack In
his wake.
"Those pieces coming down look as If
there had been a fresh flood above,"
Jack said, as some fence boards were
seen on the surface of the stream.
Bang! bang!
"Say, Jim. do you suppose anybody's
down the fiats alone?" Jack queried,
stopping abruptly.
"He'd better not be, the flood's going
to be much higher to-night. Come on,"
Jack moved slowly.
He knew these flats what they were
In slight floods, crossed as they were by
a net work of ditches for drainage.
If anybody was down there and did
not know how to swim, It would be a
pretty tough matter getting back to the
Bang! bang!
"Look here, Jim, you take my gun
with you. I'm going back. I don't be
leve anybody's foolish enough to hang
about the marsh Just for fun."
"And get caught yourself? We're out
none too soon, I think. Father says
Chester dam is leaking, and I don't
want to be In Its way if it breaks. If
that's Park, I should think you'd Jet
him look out for hjmself. He would
you. Pay him back In Ills own coin."
Jack hesitated.
It must be Park, and here wa a
iliance to pay him back.
w . i
He took n few steps, stopped again,
thrust his Rim Into Jim's hands, and
turned back.
"I'm curious to sec who It Is, any
how," he said, nfl ho waded off.
"Well, if that lstft a foolish thing to
do!" was Jim's comment, ns he hurried
off the marsh.
Jack knew his ground, nnd, carefully
avoiding the deep ditches, he struck the
logs which nt Intervals crossed them.
It was quite a distance down the flat
thnt ho had gone, and the water was
waist deep.
Then bang! went the gun again, nnd
tho flash showed him where the gunner
was In the low crotch of the old Wil
low, beyond what was known as the
"Deep Hole."
"Halloal" Jack called.
"Halloa!" came back, quickly.
"Who Is It?"
"Park Wright," was the answer. ".
am treed by the water. I don't know
my way out. Who Is it?" he asked, in
There was no reply for a moment.
Jnck stood on a submerged stump,
looking at the willow and Its occupant.
He knew that Park could not swim,
and here the fellow was, afraid to try
and find his way out because of the
holes and ditches he must cross.
"Hurry up. If you can help a fellow
out," cried Park.
"It's Jack Townerl" Jack replied, In a
half-exultant shout.
"He heard a despairing "Oh," fol
lowed by "I needn't expect help, then."
Of course Pnrk needn t expect help.
Jack was master now, and Park might
get out by himself If he wasn't such a
Here was a chance to pay
What was that noise? Wns it Ches
ter dam?
It was a mile away; but that big pond
would soon be down there.
"Hold on! I'm coming!" cried Jnck,
making a rapid circuit to the tree.
"Climb down here. It Isn't over your
head. Do Just as I say, and don't lose
your senses. Hurry!"
"The dam has broken," Park said,
faintly, as he stood trembling by Jack's
"Never mind. Come on!"
It was not far across the marsh,
which narrowed here to what was called
the gorge, but It was deep nnd the dull,
rushing roar was growing louder.
Grasping Park's hand, Jnck struggled
on, slipping, but Instinctively finding
the old farm bridge across the first deep
The current was Increasing, but they
scrambled on, now Into another ditch,
but up again, to flounder Into new
The water was growing shnllower,
but Just then It heaved suddenly nbout
them, and almost threw them off their
feet as they struck a bank.
To struggle up It and on to a rocky
terrace above was a task, but Jack did
It, dragging Park after him, Just as the
widening, deepening torrent swept by
with a mass of trees and boards upon
Its surface.
"Good for you!" Jack exclaimed,
above the roar, as they clambered up
higher out of Its reach. "You kept
right along at my heels flrst-rate," he
added, as a vent to his excitement.
"Yes, with you holding me up," Park
"It Isn't such a sweeping big flood as
some, but we'd stood a poor chance If It
had caught us," Jack continued.
"Say, Jack Towner, what made you
help me out?" suddenly asked Park.
'I-I'm not cne to let any fellow drown.
If 1 can prevent It," was the evasive re
ply. "We'd better be getting home
ward. Folks will be worried if they
hear the dam Is gone."
"All right; but I won't forget this,"
was Park's brief answer.
And the two found the road around
the bluff, across the "bridge and to their
homes. In complete silence.
The next morning Jack was giving his
mother the details of his adventure, ns
they stood looking over the mud cov
ered flat, when they heard Park Wright
call excitedly:
"Jack Towner, come down to the flat;
I've something to show you."
Jack -slowly obeyed, and followed him
down across the marsh.
An hour afterward he dashed Into the
room, followed by Park.
"What do you think, mother?" he
cried. "The stream hns gone back into
the old bed. The flood cut a channel
Just deep enough-to stay there now."
"And -whether It does or not, I'm
going to have papers drawn up to-day,
bo that the stream won't make any
more trouble hereafter," Park added,
eagerly. -"I'd made Tip my mind to that
last night, but it got ahead of me. We're
going to drop the old trouble though,
here." .
The two hoys clasped the each other's
hand for a sea! to the decision,
"So It is settled, and I am so glad,"
said Jack's mother, as Park left them.
"If only your father and his could have
thought so long ago that It would he
easier to drop It than to hold on to It."
"Yes," mused Jack; "and I'm think
ing, suppose I had paid him back Inst
