that a little tragedy had occurrod in
that brief instant under that dripping

Fight years went by and found
Gabriel Yaughno alore in tho world,
with necessity for keeping up a life
in which all interest and all energy
were dead. She had at iasl arisen
from a tedious illness, and tho nurso
herself scarcely recognized tho tall,
pale, sad-faced woman with the
short, dark curls as tho bright-eyed,
light-haired girl of six months be
fore. Gabriel had one th.ng dear to
her. and only one and that was a
memory. And some of our dcare&t
memories are the crudest part of our
lives. hen finally she stood be
fore a mirror and realized that that
changed creature was herself, a
mighty resolve filled her she would
go to the source of that memory.
bho knew whero ho was. she knew
that he had married three years after
that bitter morning in tho rain and
had married a wealthy wifo. That

him back from her long ago. just be
cause of Irs poverty. Mot that t
would pain her. a thousand times uo!
llacn t she cried out night after night
since that starvation with him would
bo only bliss? Hut she had known
his ambitions and his capabi ities;
knew his dreams of success and sho
reali ed his abil.ty to '.urn the dreams
lo realities. She was poor. Would
she permit herself lo Lang a millstone
about his neck? Would sho hold
him always in the depths of poverty
by being his wife and the mother of
his needy children? Xo sho would
hurt his heart before she would ruin
Time had proved that she had been
right. His wife was a beautiful wo
man, and her wealth had opened
boundless opportunities to him. He
had risen she had known that he
would. But now that sho scarcely
was able to know herself, she would
venture into his world and see for
herself how happy and proud and
prosperous he was.
So. having spent all but her last
bill for her t'eket she stepped into
Philadelphia otic spring evening,
steeling hr heart to what might fol
low. The next evening she had
walked past his great rich house and
was starting back when a sudden
shower burst unexpectedly upon her.
bho gathered up her skirts in that
peculiar way so characteristic of a
damty woman, and was hurrying
along when all at once she was con
scious of a sharp, childish cry at her
side. Turning she beheld a tall sad
faced man trying to quiet a fretful
baby of about throo years, which held
out its dimpled hands lo her and

I must beg your pardon, madam.
His mother has just died, and some
thing about you seems to have recalled
her to him.
Gabriel's heart softened at once.
Going straight up she took the tiny,
outstretched hands iu her own and
murmured: Poor, motherless little
The father held out his umbrella
over her and for tho first time she
looked at him the face was Robert's!
Sho was glad for the excuse of turn
ing to baby again and murmuring
However, ho had not recognized
her; so she drew all her strength to
her assistance and succeeded in hiding

brella. as I am going your way for

too. I fear baby won't liko to part
There was no easy way to retreat:
it would have been absurd to scud off
in a changed direction through the
pelting rain, so she continued talking
hurriedly to the child. As they
reached the foot of tho broad stone
steps sho stopped. '-I can not thank
you enough for having calmed Leslie."
His nurse left this morning ad
he will not be consoled by any of the
other servants. So I finally told Mrs.
Clarke, the housekeeper, that 1 would
try him for a walk? But will you not
lake tho umbrella? It will" be a
shame to expose yourself to such, a
deluge. " '
She gracefully declined all thanks
and such kind offers and quickly
glided off, a tall black-robed figure
daring the watery drops. But a per
fect shriek from baby aiose when ho
found himself deserted in this fashion,
and each succeeding cry became
louder and more distressing. Again
Gabriel could not go. Again she
came baek to him. "

she ondeavored in her practical cold
hearted way to inveigle the young
lord from his new mamma."

"where can ono get one which he can
trust on such short notice?''
A bold idea entered GubrioVs head.
She tried three or four times to speak,
and her voice failed. Finally 6he

to offer njyself? I can show you ex

Courtright in amazement- Then, a
moment later, he would have given
much to have it back unsaid; her
plain black gown was darned at the
elbows It was merely her way of
wearing it that gave her tho appear
ance of a woman of long founded
culture and delicacy.

"So, not my wife. I loved Marie

he went on: "But what I mean to

that he, as iu a dream, did as she had

Would prodece a sensation akin to that ex
perienced by the unhappy individual who feels
th chili which ushers in an attack of fever and
ague- and bilious remittent. Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters, in such an emergency, is
what is wanted at onco to scotch the enemy
which seems to penetrate the very marrow of
the bonesalternately freezing, roastlnj and
deluding the sufferer with perspiration. This
grand anti-febrile specific ia the surest medic
inal safeguard that an emigrant to tho far
AVcst can take with him. Malaria complaints
arc rife in all regions newly cleared of timber,
in mining camps and in low lying river bottoms
where the streams periodically overflow their
banks. Immunity from malaria is. however,
obtained from the protectee agent named,
which is also a remedy for indigestion, rheu
matic and kidney ailments, liver complaint,
constipaUon and debility.
During and just after the Crimean
war a popular account of that unfortunate-
struggle was published in
monthly parts, illustrated with steel
engavings. I happened to be in a
printing office where one of the serials
was manufactured, and after I had
been watching the working off of a
steel plate the foreman gave me one
of the impressions. Returning home
by omnibus I found myself seated op
posite to a soldier and put the engrav
ing into his bands.
He surveyed it with a critical eye,
frowned and exclaimed: What in
the world aro the men in the trenches
doing with their knapsacks on? I
never heard of such a thing in all my
life. Xow, here was a man speaking
on a subject with full knowledge and
with crushing criticism. Tho oniy
idea the artist had of a soldier was a
man with a knapsack on his back and
a musket in his hand. He had never
seen soldiers in the trenches, and so ho

Shall Women Carve.
An exchange pleasantly declares that
the carving knife property belong to
women and that man is aa much out of
place in wielding it as he would be ia
dispensing' the tea and coiteo. Thus
we see the tendency of modern times
is to allow women more and more JAti-.
tude and to enable her to usurp man's
place as the head of the household.
In one respect she is fitted to take this
place. That is, in caring for tho health
of the family. This is her particular
province. When the children get sick,
its the mother who ministers to their
wants, who watches over their bed
sido and relieves them. Keid's Ger
man Cough and Kidney Cure is tho
n'cht hand asststant of the mother
With this at hand she can instantly
relievo any case of croup, fche cam
mitigate the attacks of whooping
cough, sho can cure sore throat and.
thus prevent diphtheria. This creat
remedy contains no poison and it can
be given without the slijrhteat danger
or fear of evil results afterwards. Get
it of any dealer. Tho small bottles aro
25 cents, the large onts are 50 cents.
