not without its share of evidence that
no case is too deeply rooted for

"I want to let the public know

I think they are the best remedy for
sick kidneys ever made.
-I had Kidney Trouble for 23 years

drowned the voice of the messenger,
until suddenly he launched an oath
that out-thundered them all. "May

He lay there laughing after the othefs
had joined in with him and his face
was not entirely sober the next time
he turned it toward her.
Yet when he had risen a change
came into his voice that brought every
man to his feet. "XVe will make ready

The Sword cf Speech.
No holiday finery cricked out the
Danish host where it squatted along
the Severn Valley that dreary Octo
ber day, neither festal cables nor
dimpling women nor even the gay
Of all the multitude of flags nt one
banner pricked the murky air the
Raven standard that marked the head
quarters of the king: and its sodden
folds distinguished nothing more regal
than a shepherd's wattled cote. Scat
tered dumps of trees offered the
weary men their only protection
against the drizzling rain; and the
sole suggestions of comfort were the
sickly fires that pacent endeavor had
managed to coax into life in these
retreats. Some, whom exhaustion had
robbed even of a flre-tender's ambi
tion, had dropped down on the very
spot where they had slipped from
their saddles, and slept, cloak-wrapped,
in the wet. And the circles about
the Ares were not much noisier.

But tie son of Lodbrok was already
leading his men down the hillside to
ward the point where the silken ban
ner mocked at wattled walls.
Under the thatched roof of the hut
a still more striking contrast awaited
the eyes of those who entered. With
a milking-stool far his table and the
shepherd's rude bunk for a throne, the
young King of the Danes was bending
in scowling meditation over an open

that you were entertaining yourself

would I have left all to come to you."
Canute half pressed the huge paw
i and then half spurned it. "It was in
my mind to gi- you a great scolding
when I got you again. You must have
gotten yourself fitted out for the rest
J of your life since at last you were
willing to leave."
"Lord." Rothgar began, "I have come
back to you as poor as I weat "
But the King interrupted him. as
at that moment, in the figure hesitat
ing at the door, he recognized his miss
inz ward. "Say rot so, when you have
brought back the bright blade we
mourned as lost!" He put out his
As she stood there watching him.
Randalin had been undergoing a
strange transformation. For four
months she had almost forgotten his
existence, he had been little more than
an empty name, while she gave every
energy of mind and heart to the
things about her. But now, behold!
One sight of his life-full face, one
moment of his dominating presence,
and those months were swept into the
land of dreams. His deeds alone ap
peared vital; he alone seemed reaL
She. the Etheling himself, were but
as shadows depending upon his sun
like career. If he should choose to
shine upon them, what dark evil
could come nigh?
It was in all sincerity that Randalin
bent her knee as she took his hand.
"Lord." she cried impulsively, "I have
brought you back a loyal heart! I
have been very close to the English
king, and he is unworthy to hold your
Canute gave a sudden laugh; but it
was a short one. and he turned away
abruptly to begin a restless pacing to
and fro. Pausing before Rothgar, he
jerked his head toward the scroll.
"Do you know what that is? That Is
a challenge from the Ironside."
"A challenge?" his listeners cried in
He seemed to take petulant offence
at their surprise. "A challenge. Did

"Only one way would be 'possible.
Canute! Your waist is not so big as

I Half laughing, but more resentful,
the King freed himself. "Now do you

once have I gotten under your guard.
If skill could accomplish anything, you
t would not have to wait long for what
' I should fix upon." He broke off with
a shrug and flung hinfself back upon
the straw of the bunk. "Let us speak
of something else," he said. "What
did the boy say about having seen Ed
mund?" Somewhat ramblingly, as uncertain
of his interest. Randalin told him of
her glimpse of the Ironside; and he
listened, lying back on the straw, his
eyes fixed on the ceiling. She had be
gun to think he had forgotten her,
when all at once he shot out a swift
question: "Did you never find out

He did not appear to notice it when
she stopped; the pause lasted so long
that Rothgar concluded that sleep had
overtaken their host and rose softly
to beta&e himself to such, cheer as
the fires offered. As he made the
first step, however, Canute sat up sud
denly, striking his fist upon the bunk.
"I will do it!" he said. While they
stared, he rose and recommenced his
hurried pacing, his eyes keen and far
away, his mouth set in grim resolve.
"Do what. King?" the son of Lod
brok ventured at last.
Canute's eyes appeared to rest upon
the pair without seeing them. "Ac
cept the challenge," he answered ab
sently. Then the utter horror ia both
faces brought him momentarily back.
"You need aot look like that. I would
not do it if I did not see a
to win. There are other weapon thaa

1 "But if you lose?" Rothgar's aaram
' voice was discordant with estotiOB.
i "If you lose?"
The Kins silenced him impatieatly.
"I do not think I shall lose; hut if it
be- otherwise, then Fate will role it- I
prefer to risk everything rather than
to experience more delay." Catching
the bewildered page by the collar, he
pushed him toward the door. "Run,
boy. with all the speed of your legs,
and find Ingimund the Swimmer and
fetch him here. And you. foster-brother,
if. my fame is important to you. do
you betake yourself to those dumpish
oafs around the fires and try. by any
means whatever, to remedy their faint
heartedness. Ask them if they want
the host across the river to think them
turned into a herd of weeping bond
women. Ask them if they think thus
to show honor to their King: Tell
them that I take it as no proof of
their love; that I will have none of
that hairing faith which, limps up with
a great cry after the show is over.
Tell them Oh, tell them anything you
think worth while only that you get
some noise out of them! Evil will
come ot it if the Englishman is al

before ever he has struck a blow."
Rothgar sighed as he moved for

of cheerfulness to anybody but this

WHY REFORM IS SLOW.
One of the Obstacles That Prevent
Coming of the Millenium.
"Why," demanded the lady who de
sired to have the world reformed,
"should we have two standards of
morality? Why should there be one
rule of conduct for men and another
for women? Tell me that! ffag a
man any more right to be received
by society after he does wrong than
a woman has? Answer me these
questions, and I will give you the key
to the gate that shuts us off from the
millennium. The world forgives a
man for the very thing it condemns
a woman for. I demand equality. In
the name of reason, I cry out against
this wrong. Let us judge by one
code. Let us be fair to both, sides by
showing favor to neither.
"Very well," replied her meek little
husband, "I'm willing. By the way.
I understand that Tom Hanley and
Mrs. Grassington. who got themselves
so much talked about on account of
that affair they were mixed up in at
the Arlington last winter are to be at

A Straight Tip.
Donald Foster Lloyd, one of the
local officials of the Postal Telegraph
company, overheard a conversation
the other day between two messen
ger boys that made him smile. One
of the lads was a very dirty looking
specimen. His badge was tarnished,
his shoes were badly run over and
almost worn out and his uniform
was frayed and covered with dust.
The other youngster was somewhat
the worse for wear as far as his gar
ments were concerned, but he was
brushed up a bit. and he wore a
somewhat soiled but very high col
lar, set off by an exceedingly loud
"You'd better watch out." he said
to the first boy, "or the dog-catcher
aill get you."
The dirtiest urchin's inquiry as to
why he need fear the collector of
canines brought this retort: "Be
cause you hain't got no collar on."
Puff of Fame.
Justice Brewer is from Kansas, and
his state is justifiably proud of him.
Soon after his elevation to the su
preme bench a cigar manufacturer in
Topeka dedicated a 10-cent "domestic"
cigar to the jurist, named it "Our Jus
tice." and on the cover of each box
pasted a portrait of Mr. Brewer.
A few years ago the justice was in
Topeka on a business trip. The hotel
clerk recosmized him. and the negrc
bell boy, although he had no idea whe
the newcomer was, knew from the
way he was ordered about that the pa
tron was of some consequence. Going
up in the elevator the negro stared
constantly at the tall, dignified man.
Suddenly the black face was
wreathed in smiles, and the boy said:

reply to Great Britain's representa

while couched in the friendliest terms,
does not recede from the Russian po
sition as set forth in the prize regu
lations in regard to the exercise of
the right to destroy neutral vessels
carrying contraband in cases of
emergency, reserving the question for
discussion after the war.
At the same time Russia assures
Great Britain that the extreme re

announced, will not be resorted to
unless circumstances render it impos
sible to take them to a prize court.

that the prize regulations under which

Cheerfulness and Grumbling.
How many people in real life there
are who are a pernetual drain on the
sympathies of their more cheerful
friends and neighbors! They like to
be comforted with strong, uplifting
words; they appreciate cheerfulness
in others. It does not occur to
tfiem that it is a cultivable quality,
hist as grumbling is.
Corn Birds Will Not Bother.
A well known farmer says he wets
his seed corn with coal oil before
planting it. and as a result the birds
and insects do not bother it before it
comes up. The oil does not injure
the germ and keep it from sprouting.
This has been proved by e-penence.

Training of Japanese Wrestlers.
In the place of training to remove

"During the time I was a coffee
drinker," says an Iowa woman, "I wa3
nervous, had spells with my heart,
smothering spells, headache, stom
ach trouble, liver and kidney trouble.
I did not know for years what made
me have those spells. I would fre

hour had come.
"For 27 years I suffered thu3 and
used bottles of medicine enough to set
up a drug store capsules and pills
and everything I heard of. Spent
lots of money but I was sick nearly
all the time. Sometimes I was so
nervous I could not hold a plate in
my hands! and other times I thought
I would surely die sitting at the table.

I would try and do without and drink
hot water. I did this for several days.
but got tired of the hot water and
went to drinking coffee and as soon
as I began coffee again I was nervous
again. This proved that it was the
coffee that caused my troubles.
"We had tried Postum but had not

now I decided to give it another trial
so I read the directions on the pack

directions and it was simply delicious,
