Mr. Newman certainly had a very
tongh time with the grip, and it is no
"wonder that he thinks that the remedy
that cured him can't be beat. His case
shows how profoundly grip poisons the
system and how obstinately it resists all
ordinary efforts to eradicate it.
Few cases cm bo worse than Mr. New
man's for ho had head, heart and stom
ach troubles combined with great weak
ness. He recently said :
" The attack of'grip which I had eight
years ago left me in a very bad fix. I
became nearly deaf and my head ached
continually and was filled with hissing
ami roaring sounds. My heart fluttered
and had regular ruuning-away spells.
My stomach was so sore that I could
hardly bear a touch on that part of my
body. I had a great deal of pain in the
region of my liver and the doctor said
that organ was enlarged. My kidneys
ached so at times that I could hardly

he was asked.
"No, I simply wouldn't. My head
and my back ached dreadfully, but I
obstinately dragged iiiyxdf nlwut, kept

" What did you do to get relief?"
" First I tried a doctor, but he did mo
no good. Then I took all kinds of ad
vert i.-ed preparation but nothingproved
helpful until I began lousy Dr. Williams'
1'ink Pills-. As .soon as I got tlium I
knew that I had at List hit tho right
remedy for my cae. Tho very first box
did more for mo than anything ebo I
had ever taken. They gavo mo relief
right away and in three months they
IxjMtively cured me. I think I was
scarcely ever in better health in my life
than I am at present." .
Mi;. William A. Newman is a well
known Camden county farmer, living at
Hagrada. Missouri. His caso w:is a sc
reio test for any remedy, but Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills met every requirement.
Other remedies merely drive the poison
of the grip into hiding, but Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills drive it out of the system.
They arc bold by every dmrjgist.

I summer-fallow about one-third of
my farm every year, and afterward

twice during the summer, first shal

as long as possible when cutting the

" 'Cease at once.' I commanded.
'Would you add insult to injury?
What is your love to me?' 'Have a

Waters has bewitched you with his
dark foreign face and he had grace,
I will acknowledge; but am I alto

leave me,' I begged. T am wearied
with you all.' 'I will molest you no
more, if you will but promise to think
of me,' he pleaded. 'Oh, Rosemary,
listen to my love.' He stretched out
his arms to draw me to his breast.
'I will intercede with Lord Felton:
you shall not leave town if you care
to stay only love me a little.'
"You listened,' I cried; 'I am find
ing out some of the characteristics of
my cousin to-night I hate you and
if Quentin Waters is dead, I shall be
his bride in heaven. 'So you said be

he was holding his temper in check.

point the lady said, and her voice
broke like a harp that had but one

Gil had finished, and I saw that he
was well satisfied with himself that
he had done his task so well. He
handed me the locket, I took it me
chanically. My proud lady had done
penance, indeed, in confessing all this
to Gil, so that it should be repeated to
me. I looked at the bare back, where

was uninjured. The thin gold flew
out and instinctively my hand opened
to catch the paper as it fell. It
clutched emptiness. Then I turned
the locket this way and that, up and
down, while I looked for what was not

"And you say you stitched the
locket in your jerkin pocket," I re
peated in a weak voice.
Gil replied, as he had many times
"Yes. and I never took off the jerkin
either night r day, until I saw you."
His deep voice trembled in his de
sire to render its tones soft, and he
spoke as a person would humoring
one who had passed through the
shadow of death.
We had been going over the same
thing again and again, for I made him
repeat, not once, but many times,
what Lady Felton had said to him
when she delivered the locket into
his hands, hoping thereby to find a
clue to the missing paper. And each
day after talking, for very weakness,
I would fall asleep
Tn thP Inn- hours of mv delirium, so
Gil told me. I talked and raved of
nothing but Rosemary and the lost
locket Oft I started up after lying
with wide open sightless eyes crying
out: "She is innocent, I swear to
God, she is innocent; look at her
face; could deceit dwell there?"
Again I was before the King crying
out: "She is innocent, your Majesty,
I swear it Imprison me, but let one
so sweet go."
So time dragged on until at last I
regained consciousness, only to repeat
when asleep from sheer weakness,
'She is innoent innocent."
How wearying it was to him. poor
Gil! those long hours in which I
raved, for he blamed himself greatly
that he had not waited until I was
stronger before he had told me about
the locket or given it to me, and also
restrained himself when speaking of
Lady Felton. I forgave him that in
deed I never referred to it, his hu
mility was so sincere. I knew him
well enough to know that he meant
nothing, his bark was ever worse than
his bite, witness what he did for
"pretty Alice Lynson" and her daft
mate. He sent them on to Bristol es
corted by Torraine and Pat, when he
had need of them both. He also
paid their passage in a "essel soon to

their trip with a well-filled purse.

said he with the patience of an older

"I lingered too long over my own

is this: My lady mourns me dead,
and I know not where she bides."

Gil jerked out, seeing me so down in

where were sunsets more brilliant

its light upon the windows of the
huts, and the village looked aflame.
How pleasantly the smells of the sea
came to our nostrils, after the close
breath of the town' How good its
earthy smell! How good the smell of
the hay in the fields!
We reached the hall and passed into
the kitchen. Before the fire, crooning
oer it, sat old Nance, the same as

upon seeing us.
"I was but now dreaming you were

I should seek the lady of my heart,

Extraordinary Debtors' Law.
The French debtors law is, indeed,
extraordinary, and the following case
deserves to stand as a record, says
the London Chronicle.
M. Rembert-Favre, a small farmer
living at St. Romain-de-Benet, owed
the sum of 90 francs, and, being sued
for the debt, was sentenced to pay
the money with costs, making in all
100 francs. M. Rembert-Favre, who
did not understand much about legal
i. matters, either could not or would
not pay the money at once, and
thought that his creditor would wait
until after the harvest, but the order
of the Court was peremptory, and it
was decided to distrain. The bailiff
instead of seizing the furnitui", which
would have been ample for the pur
pose, seized the debtor's farm of ahout
lo.OOOf. ($::,000). The bailiff's last
bill amounted to SOf. C0c, within a
few francs of the original debt. All
tnis was done legally, in the presence
of the public prosecutor, and the
luckless M. Rembert-Favre is now
ruined for a debt of 90 francs.
Old Time Fishing.
Tears ago the writer was invited
to accompany two or three friends to
fish for pickerel at night in a rather
shallow millpond, located in a Mas
sachusetts town. A flat-bottomed boat
was used, and an iron rod about four
feet long was attached to the bow
of the beat in a perpendicular posi
tion. On the upper end of the rod was
placed an iron receptacle containing
a fire. "Pitch pine knots" were used,
which burn for a long time and sup
ply a sufficient amount of light to en
able the man at the bow of the boat
to see the bottom of the pond. A
spear with four or five barbed prongs
was used, the boat being gently pro
pelled by one of the part-. The man
at the how with spear in readiness
kept a sharp lookout. When a pick
erel was seen a quick thrust was made
with the spear. The man had prac
tically a sure thing of it, the pickerel
having little chance to escape from
the unsportsmanlike procedure. I A.

Ticket for a Cow.
While I was station agent on the
New York, New Haven & Hartford
railroad, a few years ago, a Portu
geese and companion came to the
ticket window one day, and the
spokesman, Antone Rose by name,
called for a "teeket to Fall Reev."
I sold him the required "teeket"
but he still seemed to have something
bothering him, and shortly came to
the window again, and said something
which sounded like "two." Thinking
his friend wanted to go to "all
Reev," I naturally thought he wanted
the second "teeket," and forthwith
sold him one.
It transpired he had an able-bodied
cow outside awaiting shipment to
Fall River, and what he really said
was "coo," instead of "two." I had
sold him a ticket for the transpor

CHAPTER XXII. Continued.
I sat down on the boulder outside
of the postern gate. How long ago it
seemed though in reality not so
many weeks since I had sat in that
same place, and unconsciously I as
sumed the same attitude of that other
time when I had watched and waited
even as a Silvius for his Phoebe.
Here Nell Gwyn, in all a serving
maid's masqueradery, had purposely
surprised me. Had I then seen her
as I did later up the stage doing her
inimitable mimicry I had not been so
taken in, for once seen she was never
to be mistaken for anyone else.
I called to mind another and a pret
tier picture sweet Rosemary in her
farthingales! Rosemary (had ever
name so pleasant a sound?) as she
appeared when I killed her falcon.
Some day she should have another
like unto it, I thought fondly, and my
lips curved as I recalled how she
had flouted me. The rose in her hair
had paled in beauty beside her, its
cream tint not so delicate as the skin
which it caressed.
I heard a little quivering sigh or sob.
It was so like that other day of which
I was thinking that I started up.
There in the pathway she stood; out
of the mist she grew, until from a
wraith in pale cerem?r.ts she came
to be Rosemary of flesh and blood.
Rosemary with eager eyes dilated and
hands fluttering toward me.
"You!" she whispered. "They told
me you were dead."
"Quick enough, love," I cried, as I
took her trembling hands in mine and
drew her to my breast. For a mo
ment she lay there.
"I felt you were alive." she cried
joyfully. "Would earth be so sweet if
you were dead? Oh, no! I told my
self so again and again, while I yet
eluded myself for being gay when
they assured me that you were no
I would have taken her again to
my heart, but she held me off.
"You are pale and thin you have
been ill?" she asked.
"A fever from the blow I received
on the head after I left you the night
of the London fog," I explained. "I
am well now."
"111!" she repeated, "ill! and they
would have wedded me to Cousin
Raoul even Aunt Elaine forsook me.
Oh, it has been a hateful time!
Dreading the worst for you spirited
away, at first I knew not where shut
up in yonder house subject to sur

near to hating them all! What is
that?" she added in a whisper. "Come

"You!" she whispered. "They told me you were dead!"
they find you here, I doubt not but
they'll kill you."
"Rosemary, be not afraid for me," I
"I would not, indeed; I would match
you against them all," she said with a
proud toss of her head. Then, noting
my pale face, "if you were yourself."
To satisfy her I drew back in
among the bushes, while she walked
a short way off and listened. Hear
ing nothing, she came back.
"But you have not told me hew it
happenHl?" she said.
"I know very little myself," i re
plied. "I was found unconscious out
side of Dream House the night after
I left you."
"Some rascallion about town, bent
on robbery?" she suggested.
"I think not." I said, "for I was
robbed of nothing. I remember pass

bearings of the Dwight's and its
motto, 'I strike hard,' " I added dryly.

"No," I replied. "The men were
masked; I saw so much from the light
of a torch which was swung before
my eyes, and it blinded me so I could
not grasp my sword ere the blow fell."
"Oh. no!" she cried. Her tone was
pleading. "It could not be?"
"What distresses you, dear?" I
"No. I will not think of it." she said
proudly. "One could not be so cow
ardly." ."You suspect someone?" I inquired.
"Do not ask me, sir." she answered.
"We Feltons are not loath to stand up
before one we deem our enemy but
we could not strike a blow in the
"No doubt of that, love," I said to
still her suspicions, which, while she
yet silenced, cut her to the heart;
"witness how a slender youth stood
before my long arm and rapier, and
made me do penance for the killing
of a falcon."
"Yes," she cried, throwing off her
depression; "and to think you did not
recognize me. I trembled in my
boots for fear you might The next
time when Nell and I were at the
White Swan and passed you, we were
on our guard, for from the window wo
had seen you enter the court yard.
Immediately I gave the order for our
coach to be gotten ready, although'we
had intended to rest there most oi the
day. How we chuckled when you let
us go, for in my pocket snug and safe
lay the little paper you had won in sq
disgraceful a manner fie, sir, how
could you?" She shook her finjer at
me,. and before I could reply in a man
ner that permitted of no words, she
added: "I thought, we shall see
whether Mister Quentin Waters gets

did not love you then."
"And I loved you from the 2rst mo

"And I, sir, I know not when," she
said. "There is an old verse, old but
true; I have oft heard It I will re
peat it for you:
"Pray how comes love?
Love comes unsought, unsent.
Pray how goes love?
That was not love that went."

"It might have had a sad ending
had I killed Raoul Dwight in that duel

"Ah! I believe in the luck of the
Feltons," she laughed.
"Nevertheless. I thank God, provi

to pass," I said heartily.
"I think you have to thank my fath

it was who induced the King to forget
his promise and have you impris

it to me to find out, it possible, the

she affirmed. "I slept with it at

"No one but my maid or Aunt

She opened the door of a large
