Oh , Learned Judge. A California Judge decided that there is no judicial authority to keep a man from making love to his wife , although it could stop his beating her. The remarkable cause of this remark able decision was that a woman in Los Angeles had applied for an injunc tion to restrain her husband from in sisting on being attentive to her. This judge was not a Solomon , but he real ized that only a Solomon could be trusted to rule upon the whims and Inconsistencies of womankind. When Your Eyes Need Care Try Marine Eye Remedy.

CEOKGE EY/UtS / & CO. , Dspt. X , 132 N. 5th St. , Philadelphia , Pa. EYE ACHES SYNOPSIS. The scene at the opening of the story I ; laid In the library of an old worn-ou eouthern plantation , known as the Bar ony. The place is to be sold , and It ; history and that of the owners. tn < Qulntards , is the subject of discussion b ; Jonathan Crenshaw , a business man , stranger known as Bladen , and Bol Yancy , a farmer , when Hannibal Wayni Hazard , a mysterious child of the ou southern family , makes his appearance Yancy tells how he adopted the boy. CHAPTER III. ( Continued ) . The next day Yancy had occasloi to visit Balaam's Cross Roads. Cren shaw gave him a disquieting opinioi as to the probable contents of his let ter , for he himself had heard fron Bladen that he had decided to as Bume the care of the boy. "I reckon Bladen will have the lav on his side , Bob ! " "The law be damned 1 got what' ! fair on mine. I don't wish fo' bettei than that , " exclaimed Yancy , over hi ! Bhoulder. He strode from the ston and started down the sandy road at i brisk run. Miserable forebodings o : an impending tragedy leaped up with In hira , and the miles were manj that lay between him and the Hill. As he breasted the slope he came within sight of a little group in hh own dooryard. Saving only Unch Sammy Bellamy , the group resolvec itself Into the women and children ol the Hill , but there was one smal. figure he missed. The patriarch hur ried toward him , leaning on his cane " ' Bob ! " h "They've took your nevvy , cried , in a high , thin voice. "Who's took him ? " asked Yancj hoarsely. "Hit were Dave Blount. Get youi gun , Bob , and go after him kill the miserable sneaking cuss ! " cried Uncle Sammy. "By the Fayetteville Koad Bob , not ten minutes ago you can cut him off at Ox Road forks ! " Yancy breathed a sigh of relief. A rifle was placed In Yancy's hands. "Thank you-all kindly , " said Yancy , and turning away he struck oH through the pine woods. A brisk walb of twenty minutes brought him to the Ox Road forks. He had not long to wait , for pres ently the buggy hove in sight. As the buggy came nearer he recognized his ancient enemy in the person of the man who sat at Hannibal's side , and stepping Into the road seized the horses by their bits. At sight of him Hannibal shrieked his name in de light. "Uncle Bob Uncle Bob " he cried. "Yes , it's Uncle Bob. You can light down , Nevvy. " "Leggo them horses ! " said Mr. Blount. "Light down , Nevvy , " said Yancy , still pleasantly. Hannibal instantly availed himself of the invitation. At the same mo ment Blount struck at Yancy with hi8 whip , and his horses reared wildly , thinking the blow meant for them. Seeing that the boy had reached the ground in safety , Yancy relaxed his hold on the team , which instantly plunged forward. Then as the buggy swept past him he made a grab at Blount and dragged him out over the wheels into the road , where he pro ceeded to fetch Mr. Blount a smack in the jaw. Then with a final skiltul kick he sent Mr. Blount sprawlipg. "Don't let me catch you arour. - these diggings again , Dave Blounv , or 1 swear to God I'll be the death of you ! " Hannibal rode home through the pine woods in triumph on his Uncle Bob's mighty shoulders. CHAPTER IV. Law it Balaam's Cross Roads. But Mr. Yancy was only at the be ginning of his trouble. Three days later there appeared on the borders of Scratch Hill a gentleman armed with a rifle. It was Charley Balaam , old Squire Balaam's nephew. "Can I see you friendly , Bob Yancy ? " Balaam demanded with the hangs of a stentor , sheltering himself behind the thick bole of a sweetgum , for he observed that Yancy held his rifle in the crook of his arm. "I reckon you can , Charley Balaam , If you are friendly , " said Yancy. "I'm a-going to trust you , Bob , " said Balaam. And forsaking the shelter of the sweetgum he shuffled up the slope. "How are you , Charley ? " asked Yancy , as they shook hands. "Only Just tolerable , Bob. You've been warranted Dave Blount swore hit on to you. " He displayed a sheet of paper covered with much writing and decorated with a large seal. "Read It , " he said mildly. Bala&m scratched his head. "I don't know that hit's my duty to io that , Bob. Hit's my duty to serve It on to you. " At this Juncture Uncle Sammy's bent form emerged from the path that led off through the woods In the di rection of the Bellamy cabin. With the patriarch was a stranger. "Howdy , Charley. Here , Bob Yancy , F < MI hak * bands wltb Bruce Carrlnjf- ton , " commanded Uncle Sammy. A the name both Yancy and Balaar manifested interest. They saw a ma : in the early twenties , clean-limbei and broad-shouldered , with a hanc some face and shapely head. "Yes sir , hit's a grandson of Tom Carring ton that used to own the grist-mil down at the Forks. " "Where you located at , Mr. Cai rington ? " asked Yancy. But Cai rington was not given a chance t reply. Uncle Sammy saved him th trouble. "Back In Kentucky. He takes rait down the river to New Orleans , thei he comes back on ships to Balti more , or else he hoofs it no'th over land. He wants to visit the Forks , ' he added. "I'm shortly goin' that way myself Mr. Carrington , and I'll be pleased o your company but first I got to ge through with Bob Yancy , " said Ba laam , and again he produced the war rant. "If agreeable to you , Bob , i'i ask Uncle Sammy to read this her < warrant. " " ' ' Bol "Who's been a-warrantin' Yancy ? " cried Uncle Sammy. "Dave Blount has. " "I knowed hit I knowed he'd tr : to get even ! What's the charge agii you , Bob ? " "Read hit , " said Balaam. "Why sho' can't you read plain writin' Uncle Sammy ? " for the patriarch was showing signs of embarrassment. "If you gentlemen will let me ' said Carrington pleasantly. Alter i moment's scrutiny of the paper thai Balaam had thrust in his hand , Car rington began : "To the Sheriff of the County of Cum berland : Greetings : "Whereas , It is alleged that a mur derous assault has been committed or one David Blount , of Fayetteville , bj Robert Yancy , of Scratch Hill , said Blount sustaining numerous bruises and contusions , to his great injury ol body and mind ; and , whereas , it is further alleged that said murderous assault was wholly unprovoked and without cause , you will forthwith take into custody the person of said Yancy of Scratch Hill , charged with having inflicted the bruises and contusions herein set forth In the complaint ol said Blount , and instantly bring him into our presence to answer to these and several crimes and misdemean ors. You are empowered to seize said Yancy wherever he may be at ; wheth er on the hillside or in the valley , eating or sleeping , or at rest. "DE LANCY BALAAM , Magistrate. "Fourth District , County of Cum berland , State of North Carolina. Done this twenty-fourth day of May , 1835. "P. S. Dear Bob : Dave Blount says he ain't able to chew his meat , l thought you'd be glad to know. " Smilingly Carrington folded the warrant and handed it to Yancy. "Well , what are you goin' to do about hit , Bob ? " inquired Balaam. "Maybe I'd ought to go. I'd like to oblige the squire , " said Yancy. "Suppose I come to the Cross Roads this evening ? " "That's agreeable , " said the deputy , who presently departed in company with Carrington. Some hours later the male popula tion of Scratch Hill , with a gravity befitting the occasion , prepared itself to descend on the Cross Roads and give its support to Mr. Yancy in his hour of need. Even Uncle Sammy , who had not been off the Hill in years , announced that no considera tion of fatigue would keep him away from the scene of action , and Yancy loaned him his mule and cart for the occasion. Yancy led the straggling procession , with the boy trotting by his side , his little sunburned list clasped in the man's great hand. The squire's court held its infre quent sittings in the best room of the Balaam homestead , a double cabin of hewn logs. Here Scratch Hill was gratified with a view of Mr. Blount's battered visage. "What's all this here fuss between you and Bob Yancy ? " demanded the squire when he had administered the oath to Blount. Mr. Blount's state ment was brief and very much to the point. "He done give me the order from the judge of the co't I was to show it to Bob Yancy " "Got that order ? " demanded the squire sharply. With a smile , dam aged , but clearjy a smile , Blount pro duced the order. "Hmm app'lnted guardeen of the boy " the squire'was presently heard to murmur. The crowded room was very still now , and more than one pair of eyes were turned pityingly in Yancy's direction. When the long arm of the law reached out from Fayetteville , where there was a real judge and a real sheriff , It clothed itself with terrors. "Well , Mr. Blount , what did you do with this here order ? " asked the squire. "I showed Yancy the order " "You lie , Dave Blount ; you didn't ! " said Yancy. "But I can't say as it would have made no difference. squire. He'd have taken his licking just the same and I'd have had my nevvy out of that buggy ! " "Didn't he say nothing about this here order from the co't , Bob ? " "There wa'n't much conversation , squire. I invited my nevvy to light down , and then I snaked Dave Blount out over the wheel. " "Who struck the first blow ? " "He did. He struck at me with his buggy whip. " Squire Balaam removed his spec tacles and leaned back in his chair. "It's the opinion of this here co't that the whole question ot assault rests on whether Bob Yancy saw the order. Bob Yancy swears he didn't see it , while Dave Blount swears he showed it to him. If Bob Yancy didn't know of the existence of the order he was clearly actin' on the idea that Blount was stealin' his nevvy , and he done what any one would have done under the circumstances. If , on the other hand , he knowed of this order from the co't , he was not only guilty of assault , but he was guilty of re- sistin' an officer of the co't. " The squire paused impressively. His audi ence drew a long breath. "Can a body drap a word here ? " It was Uncle Sammy's thin voice that cut into the silence. "Certainly , Uncle Sammy. This here co't will always admire to listen to you. " "Well , I'd like to say that I con sider that Fayetteville co't mighty of ficious with its orders. This part of the county won't take nothln' off Fayetteville ! We don't interfere with Fayetteville , and blamed if we'll let Fayetteville interfere with us ! " There was a murmur of approval. Scratch Hill remembered the rifles in its hands and took comfort. "The Fayetteville co't air a higher co't than this , Uncle Sammy , " ex plained the squire indulgently. "I'm aweer of that , " snapped the patriarch. "I've seen hit's steeple. " "AJr you finished , Uncle Sammy ? " asked the squire deferentially. "I 'low I am. But I 'low that if this here case Is goin' again Bob Yancy I'd recommend him to go home and not listen to no mo' foolishness. " "Mr. Yancy will oblige this co't by setting still while I finish this case , " said the squire with dignity. "Mr. Yancy has sworn to one thing , Mr. Blount to another. Now the Yancys air an old family in these parts ; Mr. Blount's folks air strangers. Consequently quently , " pursued the squire , some what vindictively , "we ain't had anytime * time In which to/form an opinion of CHAPTER V. The Encounter. Betty Malroy had ridden into the squire's yard during the progress ol the trial and when Yancy and Han nibal came from the house she beck oned the Scratch Hiller to her. "You are not going to lose your nephew , are you , Mr. Yancy ? " she asked eagerly , when Yancy stood at her side. "No , ma'am. " But his sense of ela tion was plainly tempered. "I am very glad. I rode out to the Hill to say good-by to Hannibal and to you , but they said you were here and that the trial was today. " Captain Murrell , with Crenshaw and the squire , came from the house , and Murrell's swarthy face lit up at sight of the girl. Yancy would have yield ed his place , but Betty detained him. "Are you going away , ma'am ? " he asked with concern. "Yes to my home In west Tennes see , " and a cloud crossed her smooth brow. "But ain't you ever coming back , Miss Betty ? " asked Hannibal rath i fearfully. "Oh , I hope so , dear. " She turned to Yancy. "I wonder you don't leave the Hill , Mr. Yancy. You could so easily go where Mr. Bladen would never find you. Haven't you thought of this ? " "That are a p'int , " agreed Yanc > slowly. "Might I ask you what parts you'd specially recommend ? " lilting his grave eyes to hers. "It would really be the sensible * thing to do ! " said Betty. "I am sure you would like west Tennessee they say you are a great hunter. " Yancy smiled almost guiltily. "Mr. Yancy , if you should cross the mountains , remember I live near Memphis. Belle Plain is the name of the plantation it's not hard to find ; just don't forget Belle Plain. " "I won't forget , and mebby yo i will see us there one of these days. Sho' , I've seen mighty little of the world about as far as a dog can trot in a couple of hours ! " Betty glanced toward the squire and Mr. Crenshaw. They were stand ing near the bars that gave entrance to the lane. Murrell had lett them and was walking briskly dcwn the road toward Crenshaw's store , where his horse was tied. She bent down and gave Yancy her slim white hand "Good-by , Mr. Yancy lift Hanniba ) so that I can kiss him ! " Yancy swung the child aloft. "I think you are such a nice little boy , Hannibal you He Had Not Long to Wait , for Presently a Buggy Hove In Sight. the Blounts ; but for myself , I'm sus picious of folks that keep movin' about and who don't seem able to get located permanent nowheres , who air here today and away tomorrow. But you can't say that of the Yancys. * They air an old family In the country and naturally this co't feels obliged to accept a Yancy's word before the word of a stranger. And , In view of the fact that the defendant did not seek litigation , but was perfectly sat isfied to Jet matters rest where they was , it is right and just that all costs should fall on the plaintiff. " mustn't forget me ! " And touching hei horse lightly with the whip ihe rod away at a gallop. "She sho'ly Is a lady ! " sale Yancy , staring after her. "And we musnt forget Memphis or Belle Plain , Nev- vy. " ( TO BIS CONTINUED. ) The Trouble. "What was the matter concerning th ? collapse of tlM official therm * graph ?

A youth entered one of the "ham- and-row" cafes on Grand avenue and ordered eggs. "Up or over ? " asked the man behind the counter. "I just want eggs , " replied the prospective tllner. "But do you want them up or over ? " repeated the waiter , and again the guest asserted that he desired "only eggs.

( Tea contains caf- eine the same drug found in coffee nd is just as harmful as coffee. ) "Finally one day a severe and al- nest fatal attack of heart trouble rightened me and I gave up both tea nd coffee , using Postum Instead , and ince that time I have had absolutely 0 heart palpitation except on one or wo occasions when I tried a small uantity of coffee.which. caused severe ritation and proved to me I must let : alone.
