together in the cabin. It seemed so
odd. such a strange freak of destiny,
that you should have been associated

the ery fact that you were, first cre

together. You were uo longer a mere

A moment the vague, clouded mem

in a flash the revelation came.

My father died during the second year
of my attendance there; then mother
and I went abroad, and my education
was completed on the continent. I am
not finding fault, but but it was all
most unfortunate; it brought me into
real life with u false understanding of
averything wrong ideals, wrong
standards. Wo were known to be
wealthy, many considered me beauti
luli my mother's one ambition was
to achieve recognized social standing
In Europe, and from tho first I was
destined to be a means to that end.
My education, surroundings, social en
vironment, were all shaped with this
purpose in view. In spite of myself
the result wc accomplished.
"I was merely a girl of 17, desiring
little but a good time, and accustomed
iill my life to the guidance of others.
L,ord Darlington joined our party in
Italy, and we journeyed together for a
week through the Italian Alps, finally
going on board his yacht as invited
guests for a cruise in the Mediter
ranean. He was most attentive to me.
yet I gave it scarcely a thought, I
hardly realized what was taking place
what it all meant, but but one day
we went ashore, and and we were
married at the British legation In
Athens. That day was a careless
girl: the next morning found me a
woman, regretful, aroused from a
dream, yet yielding to the Inevitable.
Whatever I suffered was borne alone;
not even my mother ever heard me
She sat looking forth over the crests
of the sea, the moonlight reflecting
back into her face. The sail swung
fn and shadowed her.
"Within a month we went to Eng
land, to Darlington hall, where every
thing was at my command, and later
to London, during the social season. I

the sa, and we went aboard in his
yacht. He was not unwilling, but to
my mother it proved a constant hard
ship. Only her anxiely to prevent any
ruptute between us caused her to go
on hoard. Yet even when I had re
covered health I would not go back;
that life would have killed me. Out
in the open I could breathe and live;
it yielded me courage to continue as
She bent forward, bringing her face
once again into the revealing moon
light, her eyes frankly open to mine.
"I only wish I could make you re
alize how drearily lonely that life be
came. There was no knowledge of
love to complicate the situation, and at
first I even felt a sense of gratitude
toward Lord Darlington for many acts
of kindness and the consideration
shown me. This changed, however, as
I began slowly to comprehend the self
ishness of his motives that his ac
tions arose merely from a certain
pride in my youthful appearance and
the advantages to be derived from my
wealth. Jly mother soon alienated my
affections by always allying herself
with him. Finally I had no one to
whom I could turn for comfort or ad
vice. I felt entirely alone, and grew
silent, suspicious, and adverse to all
social pleasures. The vows of mar
riage rested lightly on Lord Darling
ton, but for that I did not greatly care.
except that the knowledge snapped
the last weak bond between us. Al
most wild to escape from Europe and
its torturing memories I finally
planned an extensive yachting trip
around the world. I was impulsive,
headstrong, even hopeful that I might
be permitted to invite a few congenial
friends and sail alone. To my surprise
Lord Darlington expressed pleasure
in the idea, and oven persuaded my
mother to accompany us."
Her face sank suddenly into her
hands, her body trembling.
"I bore it all smilingly, and enjoyed
the sea. But 1 was a woman now. bit

and I caught them eagerly.

We spoke but briefly as we sat thus,
my hand firm upon the tiller, my eyes
never forgetful of those great surges
smiting us. Indeed, there was little
to say, for we had no future to dis
cuss, no plans to formulate. We
could only live out the night, with the
morrow a blank before us. Yet there
was nothing of all this in the girl's
face upturned and happy, nor did I
permit my eyes to mar her happiness.
We were together, understanding each
other, and for the moment that was
enough. Yet in some way my pulse
beat stronger, my will to conquer this
demon sea became mighty. God help
ing me, this love-life should not end
here end In mystery and oblivion;
those restless waters should not over
come us forever. I would fight them
for her sake and my own! The stars
and waves defied such determination,
yet I only stiffened in my seat, a new
strength animating my body, a new
faith stimulating my soul. Fifteen
hundred miles! Father of Mercy,
guide us! Yet it had been done, and
it might be done again.
"What is It, Jack?" she questioned
softly. "Of what were you thinking?"
"Of the stiff battle ahead of us,
dear; the fight for life and love across
these leagues of ocean."
"For life and love! Do you mean

could I go back, go back to that old
life again with my heart full of love
for you? That would be a fate worse
than death; It would be dishonor."
I did not answer, did rot even look
into her face.
"Surely you do not mean It, Jack?"
almost pleadingly, her hand reaching
blindly out for mine. "You can not
bring me to such shame, such trial?"
"It Is not shame," I answered earn
estly, all my soul revolting against
the word, "It may be trial, but It Is
not shame. In the face of death you
have confessed you love me, and in
the face of death I shall endeavor to
retain that love. I should be no man
if I did less. Shame! Do not use

never will yield you up to another;
never relinquish my claim. Against
nature and man I shall endeavor to
hold what is my own."
One moment I gazed down Into her
eyes, penetrating to the gray depths,
and perceiving there a sudden out
burst of passion which she did not
even seek to conceal. It was a revela
tion absolute and compete, a revela
tion never to be forgotten. Yet she
did not touch mc, did not answer in
words, and in another instant her
glance turned away out over the grim
desolation of waters. I was still look

seen, when she pointed excitedly for

a physician happened into his recep
tion room the other day and a wait
ing woman patient engaged her in con
versation. "I suppose you go to church and
Sunday school?" she asked.
"Oh, yes, ma'am," she replied.
"And what denomination do your
parents belong to?"
"Why." said the little one. "mam

Ill-fitting doors and windows rep
resent a happy hunting ground for the
disturbing winds. In fact, so annoying
does the constant rattle of these open
ings become that many determined in
dividuals, who resolve to admit the
fresh air, choose the lesser of two
evils and close the openings In prefer
ence to sleepless nights. This can be
remedied if a small wedge of wood
be driven In at the side of an open
window; a door can be prevented
from rattling If a pad or strip of thick
felt be nailed on the edge of the door.
The annoyance of creaking drawers
can be eliminated by rubbing common
soap upon the top, sides and bottom of
Creaking hinges on anything should
be well oiled, while the grating. Irri
tating notee of a sewing machine can
be overcome in a similar manner.
The little noises wear away the pa
tience that is required for other
things. It were foolish to dissipate
energy through the channels of irrl
tate.1 nerves when a little time will
obviate the nuisances.

The following remarkable statememt
was recently made by I. T. Cooper. It
concerns the preparatiom which haa
been so widely discussed throughout
the country during the past year, and
has sold in such enormous quantities
in leading cities:
"It is now a well-known fact that
wherever I Lave introduced my New
Discovery medicine, hundreds of peo
ple have brought internal parasites, or
tapeworms, tome. In many cases these
people did not know the nature f Je
parasite, and were consequently u
tremely nervous until I explained the
matter to them. In some cities so
many have had this experience that
the public generally became farmed.
"I take this opportunity A explain
ing what these creatures a-;, and what
I have learned about thez in the past.
"Tapeworms are m"xh more com
mon than would be tupposed. I ven
ture to say that pi per cent, of all
chronic stomach trouble, or what is
known as a rvndown condition, is
caused by them. An Individual may
suffer for years with one of these
great parasites and not be aware of it.
"Contrary to general belief, the appe
tite is not greatly increased it only
becomes irregular. There is a general
feeling of faintness, however, and a
gnawing sensation in the pit of the
"People afflicted with one of these
parasites are nervous and depressed.
Their chief sensation is one of lan
guor, and they tire very easily. Lack
of energy and ambition affect the body,
and the mind becomes dull and slug
gish. The memory becomes not so good,
and the eyesight is generally poorer.
"The New Discovery, in freeing stom
ach and bowels of all impurities,
seems to be fatal to these great worms,
and almost immediately expels them
from the system. I wish to assure any
one who has the experience Just re
lated with my preparation, that there
is no cause for alarm in the matter,
and that it will as a rule mean a speedy
restoration to good health."
