A curious occurrence shows the sen
timent of the Swiss people. They have
expreeaed great interest in the suffer
ing Armenians , and have contributed
freely for the support of the orphans.
But a German professor In the Univer
sity of Berne criticised this movement
and declared that the Armenians were
not worthy of these marks of sym
pathy. Shortly after he asked to be
naturalized and received as a citizen
of Berne ; but his request was refused
by a vote of 300 against 200.

It came to pass that there wore
born ijnto Ezra and Lucy Whtttlesy
two boys , William and John , who grew
to youth's estate on. the old farm in
Oakland county.
John was a home boy. His happiest
days were those on which he hoed and
weeded. With William it was differ
ent. He was like unto neither his
mother nor his father. He was just
William. Ho read , long Into the night ,
by the kerosene lamp in the sitting-
room , stories of adventure and of
youths going forth into the world in
search of fortune and of fame. He
longed for a wider field , lie dreamed
of conquests , of piles of gold , of ex
plorations Into unknown countries ,
and of experiences In life such as nev
er entered the mind of plodding John.
He detested the sorry life of the farm ,
with the homely environment , the old ,
old routine , day in , day out , and fin
ally , after several years of uncom
plaining servitude , he determined to
run away.
He was 18 then. For two years he
had saved every penny , every nickel ,
every dime that had fallen in his way ,
and ere long noted that the dollars
were taking care of themselves In a
little company of their own. There
were forty-two of them in the stone
Jar on the shelf at the head of his
"I will do It ! " , he exclaimed to him
self in the dim darkness. "I will do
It "
His thoughts were broken in upon
by tho"cy of a woman down below ,
at the foot of the stairs.
"William , William , it's time to gofer
for the milk. "
"Ah , me ! " murmurred the boy to
himself , "another night has come. I
must trudge , trudge on , through snow ,
through sunshine , and through rain ,
to that old farmhouse nearly two
miles down the turnpike for milk. But
this shall be my last walk "
"William , William , ain't yew ever
goin' fur that milk ? "
Again the feminine voice from the
foot of the stairway.
"Yes , mother , I'm com in * now. "
The boy dropped all the $42 Into his
trousers pockets , and , after placing the
Btono Jar back on its shelf at the head
of the bed , slowly shambled down the
"There's th' pail , William. " said his
mother , pointing toward the table
drawn up by the kitchen window.
William took it and passed out into
the deepening darkness. As he walk
ed down that road the whole eighteen
years of his monotonous existence ,
called life , unrolled themselves before
his mind's eye. Ho remembered the
old swimming hole , the eager hunts for
birds' nests in the days agone , the
"stone bruise" he carried to school
with him al lone spring , and the beech
whistles he used to make at recess.
And the squirrel hunts and the
games of youth , all the different
scenes of his life were enacted again
for him in the playhouse of his mem-
ory. And at the end he said to him
self : "Well , it is over now , for to
night I shall go away. Never again
will William take home the night's
milk. This is my last walk. "
He stumbled along the rocky path to
the milk house on Green's farm , and
then he trudged back over that coun
try road. The moon was rising. Al
ready a soft , silvery light flecked the
foliage of the woods on the left , and
cast shimmering shadows on the stone
And William dreamed of the wealth
of the Indies that would one day be
his , of the fame , the glorj- , and 'the
great good name that awaited him out
in the world , beyond the ken of life
on the Whittlesy farm.
Suddenly the boy stopped so sud
denly , indeed , that the frothing milk
slopped over the top of the pail and
fell in two splashes , one on the road ,
the other on his trousers.
"I shall not go home. I shall leave
now ! " he cried.
He walked to the edge of the road
and peered into the white lighted
woods. "I must hide the pail , " he
eaid , "but where ? "
For a moment he stood in the shadow
"I remember ! " he exclaimed. "The
old blasted tree trunk. I will put the
pall there. " He walked a few rods
further'up the road and then
sheered off into the woods. By
and by he came out into the moon
light again. He had carried out the
plan that had suggested itself to his
mind. The milk pail had been placed
in the old tree trunk.
Then William turned and went back
down the country road.
"Yes , " the station agent at the
crossing told him , "there will be a
train along for the West in thirty
minutes. "
William Whittlesy had dreamed of
Colorado , and 'twas there he meant
to go. An hour later ho was rolling
on his way.
And the years came and went.
Not a word was ever received by
the Whittlesys from William. And af
ter many months they came to regard
" *
him as dead , and no longer hopedJLhat
one -day" his form might again darken
the kitchen door.
. With William all went well. He
pushed his way West. He succeeded
in his first venture , and five years had
not elapsed before his name , had come
to be known throughout the mining
country. Often he thought of that
home back in Michigan , and frequent
ly he said to himself , "I will write. "
Then something would interfere with
the carrying out of his intention , and
no word would be sent back. Thus the
days , and weeks , and years sped on
until a fifth of a century had passed.
William Whittlesy had accumulated
$100,000 in the twenty years ho had
lived and toiled in Colorado , and one
day the desire came tp him stronger
than ever to go back to the old home
and gaze once again into the old eye ?
of father and mother.
So he returned.
Alone and unknown , the man wend
ed his way along the county road to
the old house on the hill. He had
crossed the lane below the woods when
he recollected that pail of milk that
he had hidden In the hollow log twen
ty years before.
"I wonder if the pail can be there
yet , " he said to himself , and smiled
at the thought. "I'll see. "
He remembered the spot as distinct
ly as though he had but left the day
before. He went to the blasted trunk ,
kicked away the stones , and moss , and
twigs , and looked down. Yes , it was
there ; but in it nothing. He lifted out
the old tin pail , its sides all full of
holes eaten by time and rust , and con
tinued on up the road.
"I shall knock at the kitchen door , "
he said to himself , "and when mother
answers I shall say : 'Here is the
milk. ' " And William Whittlesy
laughed aloud.
The house appeared unchanged. To
be sure , there were honeysuckles
growing up the back porch that had
not been there when he went away ,
but twenty years is sufficient time for
honeysuckles to live and die.
William Whittlesy ascended the
steps quietly and knocked at the door.
It was opened by a kind-eyed old lady.
William thrust forward the rusty , bat
tered pail and said : "Mc'cher , here's
the milk. " The woman looked at him
with wonder in her eyes. "Won't
won't you come in ? " she said.
William entered the room. It was
the same old kitchen he had known
when but a boy. And there by the
fireplace sat a man , feeble , and
wrinkled , and gray. "Father , I have
come back , " cried William Whittlesy.
The old man turned in his chair
and gazed at the stranger unknow
"Don't you see who I am ? " cried the
long-lost. "I am William. I have
come back. I went away twenty
years ago "
A peculiar light came into the eyes
of the woman , who , during the strang
er's appeal to the old man at the fire
place , had stood still at the end of the
table with one hand on her hip.
"I I I understand now , " she said.
William looked his thanks in his
eyes. He was about to close his arms
about the old lady when she waved
him back. "I understand , " she went
on. "Arter you went away your mother
died in 'beout a year and your pa mar
ried me. Then when he died I married
George there , an' we've been livln' on
th' oP place ever sence. So yew see
we ain't your folks arter all , though
likely ez not yew may have some legal
connection with us "
William put his hand to his brow
and reeled. He staggered to the door
sobbing , with his head bowed upon
his breast , he walked slowly down the
old country road. And that night he
went back to the West. Detroit Free
Method Employed liy a Chicago
Grocer to Attract Custom.
If you wish to attract people to your
place of business make an offer of
something for nothing. This is an
axiom of commerce which applies to
the good people of Chicago with pecu
liar force. The desire to win a prize ,
no matter if it be intrinsically worth
less , amounts to a passion with Ameri
cans. The procuring of something
without price , and if to do so means
the expenditure of a considerable sum
of money , always brings a reward to
him who makes the offer. A grocer
of the west side has discovered this
fact. He has gone further and is put
ting his knowledge to practical use.
He is anxious that each patron shall
spend a big round dollar with him.
Hence he has put up the following leg
end in his store window : "One peck
of potatoes or a basket of peaches with
every dollar purchase. " This offer
was placed , in the window a couple o
days ago. The result was a sudden
interest in the crafty grocer's wares.
Everybody wanted the peaches or po
tatoes and many a dollar was spent
when the purchaser really did not need
that amount of commissary stores.
But the spending carried the peck or
basket and the purchases were willing
ly made.

Before using1 Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com

I suffered untold agony from painful menstruation ,

trouble. I concluded to try Jlra. Pinkham's
Compound , and found that it was all any wo
man needs who suiters .vith painful monthly
periods. It entirely cured me. Mrs. GEORGE
WASS , 023 Bank St. , Cincinnati , O.
For years I had suffered with painful men
struation every month. At the beginning of
menstrua tion it was impossible for me to stand up for
more than live minutes , 1 felt so miserable. One day a.
little book of Mrs. Pinkhani's was thrown iato my
house , and I sat right down and read iL I then got
some of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and
Liver Pills. I can heartily say that to-day I feel like
a new woman ; my monthly suffering is a thiny of the
past. I shall always praise the Vegetable Compound
for what it has done for me. Jlrs. MARGARET Ao > Enso > ,

Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has cured me of painful menstrua

fered during menstruation nearly drove me wild.
Now this is all over , thanks to llrs. Pinkham's medicine and advice. Mrs.

The great volume of testimony proves conclusively that Lydia E. Finkham's
Vegetable Compound is a safe , sure and almost infallible remedy in cases of
