A case of especial interest to women
Is that of Mrs. A. Wellett , wife of a
well-known photographer here. It is
best given in her own words.
"I could not sleep , my feet were cold
and my limbs cramped , " Mrs. Wellett
states. "I had an awful hard pain
'across ' my kidneys. I had to get up
three or four times in the night. I was
very nervous and fearfully despondent.
"I had been troubled in this way for
! five years when I commenced to use
'Dodd's ' Kidney Pills , and what they
caused to come from my kidneys will
hardly stand description.
"By the time I had finished ofe box
of Dodd's Kidney Pills I was cured.
Js'ow I can sleep well , my limbs do not
Icramp , I do not get up in the night and
' 1 feel better than I have in years. I
owe my health to Dodd's Kidney Pills. "

A Host of Painters Followed Him in De
picting Peasant Life on Canvas.
In his own words , Millet tried to de
pict "the fundamental side of men and
things. " His subject was the peasant
life : not the representation of it such
as one sees in opera , nor the pretty ,
sentimental aspect of it ; but the actual
drama of labor continuously proceed
ing through the four seasons the "cry
of the soil , " echoing in the hearts of
the patient , plodding , G'od-feuriug toil
ers. Everything was typical. We
have 'spoken of his "Sower. " Of an
other picture the critic Castagnary
wrote : "Do you remember his 'Reap
er' ? He miglit have reaped the whole
earth ! "
Everything that Millet did was full
of a deep seriousness and sincerity.
He never was an "easy" painter , so
that his greatness as an artist is per
haps more clear in the black-and-white
than in the colored subjects. Certain-
| ly in his crayon drawings , lithographs
and etchings he proved himself to be
one of that limited number of artists
who may be reckoned master-drafts
men. Moreover , the character that he
t-xpresses is of that .srand and ele
mental quality which sometimes re
minds us of Michelangelo.
Millet's influence produced a host of
painters of the peasant , among whom
the strongest are the Frenchman
L'Heruiitte and Israels , the Dutch
man. These , like him , have repre
sented their subject with sj'nipithy
and with understanding also. St.

4 * WHIPPING.
ED was not at the breakfaa.
table when his father and nioth-
* * er were discussing his delin-
quencies. It was Saturday morning
and he was upstairs in a wide , sunny
room at the back of the house called
the store room , though in reality it
was given over to Ted as a work shop.
He had taken his bread and milk
breakfast early that morning , as he
had an electrical device In his mind
which he was developing from two tin
cans and some copper wire , combined
with a toy batlery.
Ted was Mr. and Mrs. Edward Full-
er' § only child and in him rested the
emphasis of their lives. He never had
g'iven them trouble before , and to
speak of severe discipline in connec
tion with Ted was a new and unpleas
"He came home from school lale
again yesterday afternoon , " his mother
related , almost tearfully. "That was
the third time it lias occurred this
week. The time before I told him it
must never happen again. He prom
ised me faithfully it should not and
the very next afternoon he was late.
I don't want to restrict him too much ,
but after school closes I want him to
report at home and let me know what
he intends to do. He promised me he
would and then disobeyed me. I never
knew Ted to be deliberately disobedi
ent before , " she lamented. ,
Ted's father listened with a frown
of perplexity marking his brow. He
was astonished to learn that Ted
joyous , , sweet-tempered , ten years old
Ted should be turning unruly.
"What do you think we should do ? "
he asked after a moment's thought.
His wife's voice was tremulous
when she answered.
"I told him yesterday we should
have to punish him. He would not ex
plain what kept him and and "
she hesitated as if dreading to make
the revelation. "Oh , Edward , he looked
as though he had been fighting ! "
She hid her face in her hands and
shuddered at the enormity of Ted's

strained a smile , remembering like ex
periences of his own boyhood.
"Oh , well , " he said cheerfully , "that

voice filled with reproach , "that does
not excuse his disobedience. For his
own sake he must be held In control. "
"No , he should not have disobeyed
you , " Ted's father admitted. "I sup
pose I shall have to whip him , but I'd
rather take a beating myself. I be-
ieve that Is what my father used to
do to me whe-n I kicked clear over the
traces , " he"reflected. .
His wife did not answer at once and
he took her silence for consent He got
up from the table slowly and walked
across the room , lingering on his steps.
Mrs. Fuller , dreading the crisis she
had precipitated , courted delay.
"Isn't there some other way ? " she
asked , pleadingly.
Ted's father shook his head. "As I
remember , " he said , "an interview
with a switch was particularly effect- °
ive. I was never hurt much , but it °
stung my pride so I was careful to g
avoid doing the things forbidden. We
might as well have it over and I think ,
considering Ted's disposition , it is not f
likely to occur again. "
By this time Ted's mother was in
"Oh , Edward , " she sobbed , "don't If

She heard Ted come bounding down
the stairs in a cheery , "All right , I'm
coming , " in answer to his father's
She did not wait to hear more , but
fled to her room , where she shut and
locked the door. She flung herself on
the couch andVburied her head in the
pillows in fear of hearing Ted's cries.
Knowing her boy as she did , it was
foolish of her to think he might cry
out , and knowing Ted's father as she
did it was foolish of her to think he
would be too severe. After all it would
be only a bit of mild discipline which
never should be repeated.
"Never ! " she exclaimed fiercely ,
springing to her feet and clenching her
hands. "Never ! "
It seemed to her but yesterday that
Ted was a tiny , soft baby whose
liken head fitted so snugly lnto the
curve of her neck. And Ted was such
"cuddly" baby ; he never resisted her
when she nestled him In her arms. He
was iuch a "cuddle doon" baby. The
aemory wrung her heart ; h § conld
not endure to think of blows falling
on that soft body and perhaps marring
its satiny smoothness. She would go
to Ted's rescue ; he must be punished
in some other way. She started to
carry out her determination. Her hand
was on the door and then she remem
bered it would not be just to interfere
with the boy's father and put him
wrong in Ted's eyes. She went back
to the couch and sat on its edge to
Ted's father , commanding his son to
follow him , led the way to the barn.
His silence made Ted feel there was
something amiss and he obeyed him in
wonder. He saw him stop and cut a
slender switch from a tree , at first
seeing nothing in this connected with
himself. He thought his father was
angry about something and he search
ed his mind to discover wherein he
was the cause. Suddenly he recalled
an event of yesterday and his mother's
warning that he should be punished.
He had forgotten , and now the hour
Ted had no idea of evading the pen
alty. "Always walk up and take your
medicine like a man , Ted , " his father
told him one day , and he was going to
show him he could follow instructions.
Mr. Fuller's heart was much weaker

than his son's. It seemed a brutal , un
fair thiug he was about to do. Ted's
head scarcely reached his elbow. He
was using his own superior size and
strength to take advantage of his boy.
but , according to his light , it must be
done , and it were best to do it quickly.
In the barn he faced his son , feeling
like a towering giant.
"Ted , " he said , "take off your coat.
I'm going to whip you for disobeying
your mother yesterday. "
"Yes , sir , " Ted answereJ , stripping
off his jacket.
Under their linen covering the boy's
shoulders looked childishly thin and
narrow. The man could not strike that
frail body even with so harmless a
weapon as a slender switch. The boy
waited. The man waited. He would

There were no chairs in the place , w

his arms and clasped his hands to

the utmost gravity.

"That's not so bad ; no battle worth
the name is without its scar , " he said ,
speaking as man to man.
"Yes , sir , " responded Ted.
There was a moment's embarrassed
silence between them while Mr. Fuller
surreptitiously bent and broke the
switch and threw it out of the door.
He got up from the floor. Ted imme
diately followed his example and they
stood facing each other , the big man
and the little man , eyes meeting eyes
with love and perfect understanding ,
"Shake , Ted , " invited his father ,
holding out his hand.
"Yes , sir , " agreed Ted heartily.
In her room , Ted's mother , wondert
ing at the length of time which had
elapsed , was at the window waiting
and watching. Presently she saw her
boy and his father coming across the
lawn. They were holding amicable
converse together and Ted was
stretching his short legs in absurdly
long strides to keep pace withhis
father's steps. Ted saw his mother
and called to her to come down. She
hastened to join them , and over their
son's head the father and mother ex
changed glances which asked and an
swered a 'question.

WAKING IN THE WILDERNESS.
Hard to Get Out of Bed When the Mer-
cnry Is 40 Below Zero.
You are awakened in the bitter dark
ness of the early morning by the sound
of the camp dogs moving among tha
frozen pails of refuse. You hear their
padding footsteps passing this way and
that outside of the tents and the brush-
Ing of their bodies against the canvas
walls. Then you hear the sound of
chopping wood where some one is at
work in the starlight. One of the men
stirs and rises in the darkness. The
tent is bitter cold , with everything
frozen as hard as iron. You hear the
man fumbling around In the darkness
for the matches , and presently he
strikes one and lights a caudle.
Presently he begins chopping the
wood for the stove , and his big , round
f moves uncouthly and gro
tesquely about the walls as the flame
of the candle wavers in the draught of
cold air. He makes a fire , and in a
moment the flame is roaring up the
stovepipe , which gradually becomes a
dull red with the gushing heat He

Then you yourself move reluctantly

stove. None of you speak , but each
absorbs the scanty heat in silence. But
by and by , warmed to some return of
life , you peep out of the tent ; the sky
is like black crystal , the stars shining
with an incredible effulgence. From
the stovepipes of the other tents rock

air ; showers of sparks rise up into
the night high overhead hover , waver

and the surrounding snow.

of a match that it is 40 degrees below

OF VALUABLE EXPEBIKftlE.
A Former Pronounced Dyspeptic
Rejoices In Perfect Freedom from
Miseries of Indigestion.
Thousands of snfferers know that the
reason why they are irritable and de
pressed nnd nervous and sleepless is1 > e-
cause their food d'oes not digest , but how-
to gefcrid of the difficulty is tho puzzling
Good digestion calls for strong diges
tive organs , and strength comes from a
supply of good rich blood. For this
reason Mr. Bayssou took Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for the cure of indigestion.
" They have been my best doctor , " h
says. ' ' I was snfferiug from dyspepsia.
The pains in my stomach after meals
were almost unbearable. My sleep was
very irregular and my complexion was
sallow. As tho result of nsing eight
boxes of Dr. "Williams' Pink Pills , abont
the merits of which I learned from
friends in France , I have escaped all
these troubles , and am able again to take ' ,1 I
pleasure in eating. "
A very simple stoiy , bat if ifc had not
been for Dr. Williams' Pink Pills it
might have been a tragic one. When dia- 5 t ;
comfort begins with eating , fills np the
intervals between meals with pain , and
prevents sleep at night , there certainly
cannot be much pleasure in living. A
final general breaking down must be
merely ft question of time.
Mr. Joseph Baysson is a native of
.Abc-les-Baius , France , but now reside *
at No. 8439 Lorkiii street , San Francisco ,
Cal. He is one of a great number who
can tesfcffy to tho remarkable efficacy of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills in the treatment
of obstinate djsordeirj.oftlio stomach. |
If you would get rid of nausea , pain or
burning in the stomach , vertigo , ner
vousness , insomnia , or any of the other
miseries of a dyspeptic , get rid of the
weakness of the digestive organs by the
use of Dr. Williams'Pink Pills. They
are sold by druggists everywhere.
Proper diet is , of course , n great nid in
forwarding recovery once begun , and a
little book , "What to Eat and How to
Eat , " may be obtained by any one who
makes a reqnest for it by writing to the
