"I brought Tacks with me because
I had to do some shopping, and he's
so much company," Clara J. explained,
when I joined them at the restaurant
"Tacks is always pleasant com
pany," I said, politely, but I deter
mined to keep a watchful eye on my
youthful brother-in-law, nevertheless.
That kid was born with an abnor
mal bump of mischief and by pains
taking endeavor he has won the
world's championship as an organ
izer of impromptu riots.
"Oh, John!" said Clara J. when I
began to make faces at the menu
card, "I didn't notice until now how
pale you look. Have ou had a busy
"Busy!" I replied; "well, rather.
I've been giving imitations of a bull
fight. Everybody I met was the bull
and I was the fight. Nominate your
eats! What'll it be. Tacks?"
"Sponge cake," said Tacks promptly.
"What else?" asked Clara J.
"More sponge cake," the youth re
plied, and just then the smiling and
sympathetic waiter stooped down to
pick up a fork Tacks had dropped.
In his anxiety not to miss any
thing, Tacks rubbered acrobatically,
with the result that he upset a glass
of ice water down the waiter's neck,
and three seconds later the tray
trotter had issued an extra and was
saying things in French that would
sound scandalous if translated.
It cost me a dollar to bring the dish
dragger back to earth, and Tacks said
I could break his bank open when we
got home and take all the money if I'd
let him do it again.
" Uncle Peter is delighted beyond
measure with your business ability,"
Clara J. informed me after the treat v
"Sorry I had to give you the busy
ear, Peaches, but the fact Is I paddled
away to the office of Higginbottom &
Co., who wanted to put me wise to
some, cr that is, some new stock!"
"Railroad stock?" she inquired.
"Well, not exactly Twentieth Cen
tury Limited or Royal Blue Flyers,"
I answered, "but I think some of il
could win from a slow freight if prop
"Watered stock, I suppose!"
laughed Glara J.
"Yes. it was watered all right, but
not fed," I replied. "There wasn't
much doing in oats until I led the way
to the barn."
I had Peaches in the air by this
time, but she thought I was talking
the broker dialect, so she stayed on
the roof and watched the scenery go
Just then I got a flash of Dike Law
rence bearing down in our direction
under a full head of gasoline.
Dike was leading a three-days' jaff
by the hand and talking to it like a

"He has a right to be!" I muttered,
painfully, as I thought of my recent
swift ride down the mountain side on
D. Q. & N. I had had a profit of
$7,000 in it and then it went down
and wiped me out
"He says that by following his di
rections carefully you are seven
thousand richer today. Are you,
"Sure, Peaches!" I answered truth
fully. "I'm seven to the good."
i r or my late uncle had left me seven
j horses, which had Just been brought
' to mo from Kentucky by Murf Hig
ginbottom. his old trainer.
I neglected to add the word skates,
but, then, what's a little thing like
that amount to among friends?
i "Seven in one day," she said, en
"Seven in one day one of them
with four white feet," I said, like a
man in a dream.
"What do you mean?" Clara J.
asked: "is that a Wall street ex
pression?" "No," I answered hastily; "I was
only talking to myself and I held the
'phone too close to my mouth. Let's
start this banquet with a hot wave
waiter, clam cocktails for three!"
"Uncle Peter. Aunt Martha and I
had a long talk today about your
prospects in Wall street," Clara J.
rattled on. "Oh. John, vou don't
I know how happy it makes me feel to
think that you'll never, never go near
i those awful race tracks again."
My thoughts took the ferry for Jer
sey City, and I could hear Murf Hig
ginbottom saying. "Yo Uncle Owen
considered yo' all as big Casino on the
eastern tracks, suh!"
"You'll make a lot of money with
i the seven you got today, won't you,
dear?" Peaches asked encouragingly.
, "Possibly." I replied, nervously;
"still, you never can tell. They may
get into the habit of running back
wards er. I mean, the market is very
uncertain! Tacks, take your thumb
out of that butter!"
I "I was so sorry I couldn't get you
on the 'phone early this afternoon."
Clara J. informed me. "I called up

explained: "we haven't any chil

endeavor to calm him.
"You do," he answered, trying to

our family physician, who at once pro

of that time, he seemed no better. I
became discouraged, and as I had
read the advertisements of Cuticura
Remedies and testimonials of a great

wonderful success, I dropped the doc

use of Cuticura Soap and Ointment,

was almost healed, and his shoulders,
arms and breast were decidedly bet

BURDENS LIFTED FROM BAD BACKS
Weary is the back that bears the burden of kidney ills. There's no rest or peace for the man or
woman who has a bad back. The distress begins in early morning. You feel lame and not refreshed.
It's hard to get out of bed. It hurts to stoop to tie your shoes. All day the ache keeps up. Any sudden
movement sends sharp twinges through the back. It is torture to stoop and straighten. At night the suf
ferer retires to toss and twist and grown. Backache is kidney ache a throbbing, dull aching in the kid
neys. Plasters or liniments won't doP You must get at the cause, inside.
