i.ung since tho rain haci commenced to pour in torrents from the ink-
blnck sky.
At tho commencement of the storm,
he bad torn ofl his coat, and wrapped it ubout poor, hapless Donnylin.
At length ho joyfully behold In tho
distanco" a beacon-light: but Uonny-
liu moaned out that sho could never
reach it, and pleaded with him to
go on by himself, and to lay her
down b.v the roadside lo die,
"You aro not going to die, beloved) you aro only norvpjis—exhausted.
I will carry you the rest ol the Way,
Sho clung to him desperately, sobbing out how Well she loved him,
that she wus dying, hut that ho
must not forget her; ho must always
remember, too, that though shu
loved him with a Iovo surpassing the
love of women, she had not through
jealousy committed tho piteous
crime for which they were hunting
her down. No, nol Sho was not
"My dulling, you pain mo lo ths
heart to hear you recall those old
harrowing scenes," ho snid; and
tears that wero no disgrare to his
manhood coursed down his cheeks. "I
believe; as I always have, in you entire innocence, my darling wife; and
ns I shall always flrnlly believe to
the end of my life."
There was a slight tightening of
the arms that were clasped about
his neck, which showed him she had
heard him. The next Instant the
golden head fell back on his breast,
und ho knew that her senses wero
locked  in  a death-like swoon.
In all the years of his after-lifo he
never forgot the half hour that followed—how ho pushed his way
through the tangled briars of the
deep wood, tho rain pouring in torrents, beautiful, hapless Bonnylin lying a dead weight in his arms.
As Le Roy approached the beacon-
light, ho saw that ho wus rapidly
nearing a habitation. A moment
more and ho was knocking hurriedly
for admission.

cried aghast, at the strange spoctacls
that met hor view.

into the room with his hapless burden; "a word will explain this un-

"That you may sir, and welcome,"
responded tho kind woman. " I

shrilly to a tall, lank boy nodding
on a settee, "put more logs on the
fireplace, get around lively, too; and
you run and fetch the cordial," sho
said, turning to her young daughter.
She bad thrown the coat back from
Bonnylin, and had started buck with
a littlo suppressed scream.

Half an hour later the good old
doctor, panting and blowing, quite
out of breath, entered the room
said the doctor, approaching the
where llonnylin lay.
"This is my patient, I suppose,"
said tho doctor, approaching Ihe
couch and glancing curiously ut the
handsome, anxious, white-faced
young man who knelt beside  it
Ono moment, sufficed to explain the
situation, when the doctor called L.
Iloy aside.
All night long the terrible storm
raged outside, the winds inouiied and
tho trees rocked, deep muttering

I'ierpont pneed the lloor of the room
below, listening with haled breath to
the doctor's heavy trend in Ihe room
above. inside Ihe house wus the
slraugo hush thai dangeroufs sickness
ulways brings with it.
Midnight hud struck from somo
fur-off belfry—one, two, three ;
then tho door suddenly opened and
tho doctor entered.
Lc Roy sprung forward with baled
breath ; and tho agony in his lace,
the suspense and the fear were a revelation to the doctor.
"Your patient, doctor," he whispered hoarsely, "tell me, ls she living— or—oi "
He stopped short as though the utterance of the fearful word would
choke him.
"That depends upon wliich 'she'
you mean. returned tbo cheery,
good-natured doctor, smilingly, "you

"Let tho womun i,„ sent for. by all

I    An hour Inter the nurse, Ruth Burton,   wus    just     leaving  the cottage
with tho infant in her arms.
|    "Let me givo    you a piece of   advice, sir," she said to the handsomo

I "I will act upon your advice," replied I.e Iloy, pressing a purse full
o( bunk-notes into the woman's
hand. "'Pake care of my child and
you shull never regret It."
The plan wus highly approved of
by tho motherly woman beneath
whose roof Bonnylin found shifter.
"We lTiust deny the child to the
young mother ut any cost," she decided; " and to prevent her pleading
for it, we must use Ruth Burton's
ruse. When she recovers, and linds
that it lives, her joy will know no
bounds, und joy never kills."
It was fully a month before Bonnylin was able to be about; und during that month, a strange thought
had came to Le Roy. as ho listened
to her piteous pleadings to be taken
across the water at once. She had
shed a few bitter, yearning, passionate, tears for tho little one whose
(ace she never remembered having
seen; then she bravely tried to forget. If there were hours she spent
in .cars and sighs, Le Roy never
knew  il.
Sho was slill weak as a delicate
(lower, too weak altogether for Ihe
cure of a child. And the thought
caine to Le Roy, why not tuke Bonnylin buck with him, and leave the
child here ? TionnyHu would never
know; he would provide lor it handsomely.. Ah, yes ! lhat would bo
Let it not be understood thut Le
Roy did not love beautiful Bonnylin's babe, for he did. But under
tlio existing circumstances, with
which tlie reader ls quite familiar, he
decided Ihut it, wns best that tho
child should remain where it was,
until the horrible cloud tbat shad-
Owed ils poor young mother's future
should be lifted. They might be
fatal lo be hampered with the child.
Alter making arrangements with
lluth Burton to keep the child until
he should come for it, nnd providing
her plentifully with money, he suddenly took llonnylin away. No ono
knew from whence the handsomo
couple had come, no one knew where
they  went.
Poor Bonnylin went on hoard the
Steamer, little dreaming—Heaven
help her I—that she had left her
beautiful child behind her alive ! She
often dreamed of it in a little gravo
among the wrld flowers that bloomed in the churchyard.
As the steamer moved out from
the dock, and the bluo line ol shore
receded from his gaze, a vague misgiving enme to Le Hoy as to whether or not. he had acted wisely. It
wns too late now for self-reproach,
A his I   too late;  the evil was done.
It wns u beautiful sunshiny morning when the steamer reached New

lie had written Fenlon that they
would reach New York on the 12th
Instant, and they found their faithful  friend there lo meet them.
"Of course, I am delighted to sec
you both," he declared enthusiastically, but adding aside, in an undertone to I.e Hoy, "hut, good Heavens,
my dear boy I do you think it is
safe 1"
"I did not eure nbout returning
just yet," said Le Hoy, thoughtfully,
"but Bonnylin would come."
**I had rut Inn* face the dangers at

Fenlon looked at Ihe lovely, white
face in bewilderment; neither ho nor
Le Hoy hud the slightest idea what
she referred  to,
They had entered a conch und had
given orders to be driven to the
qulot hotel In the suburbs, where
Fenlon hud engaged a suit of rooms
for them.

Le Boy, bitterly. "Oh, Heaven. Fenton !" he added desperately. " this

As the old danger menaced them on
this sido of the 'water, they were
obliged to have recourse to disguise

served them so well before was
adopted once more.

Bonnylin, as the bell-boy ushered
them into the apartments set apart
for them. "Long enough to rest

Fenton down in the office, dear, if
you think you can spare me for half
un hour or so. I must find out when
the trains leave for different parts;

such matters."
"You are right, dear," said Bonnylin, clasping her while arms
around him. "But don't be gone
long.   I always  miss you."
"I shall be back within an hour,
bringing Fenton with me. You
must not feel lonely; lie down and
try to rest, or read this morning's
Tribune, which I have just bought,
and have not had time to look over
yet," and as he spoke he placed tho
paper on the table.
"If you do lie down, be sure and
fasten the door securely, my darling,
to keep out prying chamber-maids,"
he added, lightly kissing tho rosebud
mouth, and unclasping the clinging
arms from his neck.
"You  will  not bo  gone  long,    Le '

lie answered "No."
Led   to herself,  Bonnylin turned to
tho window to  watch  the throngs of
pedeslruins  that  surged   to  and    fro
on   the  streets below.      Soon   tiring
of this,  she picked  up  the pnper Lc

Bonnylin glanced over the first
page carelessly enough, turned it,
and ran her eyes over the second
column on the next.
One moment she gazed; then she
fairly gasped for breath, clutching
ber ice-cold hand, convulsively over
her throbbing heart.
These were llie fatal words that
caught her attention and held her
spellbound :
"Tbe Boston sensation which transpired a few months since, involving
the brldo of the young millionaire,
Le Roy rierpont, ending in the release by death of the former, which
we chronicled in this paper at the
time seems to have re-opened with
a startling sequel.
"It appears that an anonymous
type-written letter was mailed from
London lo the Boston authorities,
informing thein that Le Hoy rierpont and his young wife. Bonnylin—

"In a flash the dismayed officials

Meanwhile, young Pierpont's brido

well to Europe, where her husband
joined her. Believing all suspicion
allayed forever, Ihey had ventured to
' return to their own country, and
had landed, no doubt, a day or so
previous to the mysterious letter."
"This is Basil Severne's^revenge,"
muttered Bonnylin, as the? paper fell
from her nervous hand, and the
darkness of death swept over her
ere she could read the closing paragraph which concerned her so vitally-
And nt that moment the door opened suddenly, and a maid with clean
towels and a duster in ber hands
stood In the threshold.
"I knocked, ma'am, but I guess
you did not hear nie, so I made bold
to enter," she said coiirtesying, and
walking into the room.
Bonnylin bowed, murmuring some
unintelligible reply.
"Been reading the Boston sensation ?" she asked, picking up the paper that had fallen on the floor at
Bonnylin's feet and replacing it upon the table; "awful, wasn't it?"
the loquacious maid rattled on. "I
see there's a heavy reward offered for
her recapture—the wicked creature-
why, hanging would be too good for
her for putting that poor pretty
young girl out of the wny because
her handsome husband admired tlie
girl's prctty-facc.
"Why, how white you nre?" said
the girl curiously. "Does the story
affect you so ?"
"No—no !" breathed Bonnylin,
hoarsely; "why should lt ?" and tho
unnatural sound of her own voico
thrilled her with  terror.
"How 1 should like to rapture her
und get tho reward that is offered—
a thousand dollars—some one wiil be
lucky enough to get It—-how I wish
it was me !"
For au instniit tho darkness of
death seemed lo fall upon poor Bonnylin. She shook it oft witli a
mighty effort,
"Perhaps that poor bride was not
guilty alter all," she responded
faintly, and straining lier cars to
catch the girl's answer.
"Oh, there was no doubt about her
guilt," replied the girl, confidently ;
"it was clearly proven at the trial.
If she had not been guilty, why
should she huvo fled in the flrst
placo ?"
"Ob, I don't know—I don't know
why sbe fled I" murmured Bonnylin,
pressing her ice-cold hands tighter
over her beating heart.
"Sho Won't go free long, I can

one. will be lucky enough to get it."
"Would you—a young girl—betray
her for paltry gold ?" cried Bonnylin, hoarsely, as she laid a trembling
hand ou the girl's arm; "will you
condemn her on what the papers
say ?"
" I have no pity for a
jealous woninn," declared the
innid; "they aro dangerous to the
community—a jealous woman—bah!"
"You have never known a great,

her lips when crazed by jealousy that
fatal night.
"II von were a bride, my girl,

he had loved in former days— without, one throb of jealousy!

frenzy and despair of outraged love
would drive you mod! Every woman's heart who has known one
throb of love's fierce, unconquerable
flnmo, cannot help but beat with
pity for that poor motherless bride.
Women will understand; oh, they will
know and pity her!"
This strange burst of pathetic eloquence from the beautiful young
Stranger startled the maid llko an
electric shock.
"Ono could almost fancy, to hear
you talk, ma'am, thnt you were jealous of your young husband," laughed the girl.
The timely words recalled Bonnylin
to her senses. In the great excitement ot the moment she bud forgotten prudence—forgotten Le Hoy's
warning to bo always on her guard.
Great Heaven! did this girl mis-
Irust her?
No wonder a thrill of terrible fear
shot through llonnylin's li.art—the
girl wus gazing at her steadily!
"Surely you would not deliver
that poor, hunted creature Into the
hands of her enemies if she should
chance to cross your path!" murmured Bonnylin, excitedly.
"I am poor! A thousand dollars
would I.e a terrible temptation, which
1 could not resist possessing if I
could!" returned the girl.
"And for that pitiful sum you
would sell a young life?" demanded
Bonnylin—"you so tender of heart!"
"If 1 didn't somebody else would!"
retorted tbe maid. "But, denr me!
what's the use of speculating about
such an impossibility? She's not
likely to cross my path! I only
wish she would!"
The girl wondered why the lovely
young stranger grew so pale, and
why she clutched so convulsively at
her fair white throat, as if to ward
off some blow.
Bonnylin said no more, but turned
to the window with a quivering sigh.
If the girl should suspect the truth!
Tho very wind among the waving
trees, and tho crimson-hearted passion roses nodding against the casement seemed to murmur: "Wc know
you; you are hapless, persecuted Bonnylin!"
It almost seemed to Bonnylin that
if tho girl listened she must surely
hear the terrible secret they boldly

When Bonnylin turned around she

Poor, hapless Bonnylin dared not
think of the future. She shut out the
past completely from her thoughts
as far as possible, living from day
to day upon the sunshine of I.e Roy's
Bonnylin wns extremely tired and
needed rest. Tho white ruffled pillows
on the couch looked so restful and
inviting. Ab! if she could but forget nil her troubles in sleep.
"I will bathe my luce, removing all
trace of these bitter tears, and tnke
half au hour's rest before Le Roy
comes," she mused, "for I am tired,
oil, so tired."
Bonnylin threw oft tho dark tresses
that disguised lier, laying them carefully on the white counterpane,
standing before the mirror her own
golden-haired self once more.
Scarcely more I ban a child herself
—not yet eighteen—and having passed through so much. Her lifo hud
been ono long, dark tragedy since
thut fatal Hallow-e'en. Her love had
been a curse instead of a blessing to
Lo Hoy. Like the poet, Lo Roy
might have suid:
"I know not, I ask not, if guilt's In
thy heart,
I know thut I love thee—what   ever
thou art."
Bonnylin untied the blue silken
ribbon that bound her golden curls,
and ihey fell unconflnod to her waist
in a muss of shining splendor.
"'Hair like spun gold!' that was
the way those cruel papers described
me," sho murmured plteously, adding
under her breath, "nnd for that reason I must 1m more than cautious
that no one sees mo without my dark
Ah! how her poor head ached as
she sunk back among the white frilled pillows. Slowly tho blue eyes
closed, and, despite tho terrible
shock she *ad reccivod, she dropped
oil into a troubled sleep.
How long Bonnylin slept was ever
afterward a confused memory to her.
There was a light tap on the door,
but poor Bonnylin was in too deep
a sleep to hear it. Her lips moved in
a sigh:
"Poor littlo baby, It ls too cold
and damp whero they havo buried
you in your little, narrow grave on
tho hillside, beneath tho golden-
hearted daisies. I weep for you so
much; but Lo Roy does not know."
The rap was repeated more impatiently. Bonnylin was too utterly
tired out to heed lt,     This time It'
was to summon her to Ulnctieon.
There was no answer. The silence
of death reigned within, and, as
before, the maid turned the knob and
entered the room.
She advanced but a single step,
then stood still as if rooted to the
spot. Her eyes had fallen upon the
white face and golden hair that fell
about it in beautiful abandon. Then
her gaze, full of "horror, traveled to
the disguise of dark, silken tresses
lying on the bed* beside poor Bonnylin.
For one fatal moment in dead silence the girl looked, and like a flash
the truth came to her—she understood all.
Then followed a shrill, piercing
scream that brought Bonnylin to her
feet in a bound A scream that
echoed clenr and distinct throughout
tho houso.
Frozen with horror too pitiful to
be described by words, Bonnylin gazed at the girl who held her very lifo
lu her hands—terrified, fascinated,
Pointing to the loug, dark tresses
that lay upon tho bed, the girl
shrieked  shrilly :
"I know you now I You are. Bonnylin  Pierpont I"
Like one stricken blind, Bonnylin
groped her way to where the girl
stood, and flung hersell' wildly on
her knees  before her.
"Have mercy I" she gasped, clinging to the girl's hands in the maddest terror. "Ob, for the love ol' the
angels, show nie mercy, or 1 will die
at your feeti 1"
A moro pltoous sight could never
have beeu Imagined than lhat upon
which the golden sunlight   fell.
"1 know you now !" repented the
girl, in a shrill, terrible voice. "You
are tbe one for whom the rewind bus

Bonnylin raised her great blue
eyes, with a world of misery in Ibem
to the girl's face.
"Have mercy I" she gasped again.
"You are a young girl like myself !
M.V very life is In your dear hands.
Oh, for the love of Ood—the peace
of a human soul, 1 plead with you
to spare me !"
The girl recoiled from her in horror, and flung the clinging white
hands from her as though they had
been scorpions.
"Spare you ?" she cried. "You—
who have been guilty of such n wicked deed. Ah, no. The spirit of tbat
poor murdered girl would haunt me if
1 did. You deserve no pity. A
heart for a heart, Is the cry of ths
people, and a life for a life."
She stood between Bonnylin and tlie
door; escape was impossible ; this
Bonnylin realized at a glance.
With a shrill, piercing cry. that
rung in Bonnylin's bruin fore- er afterward, and made ber almost faint
with horror as she lived over ngain
that awful scene, the girl flung open
the door, ejaculating shrilly :
"Help, help, help I"
Answering cries, and th.e sound ol
hurrying feet fell upon Bonnylin's
sharpened car.
A quick, sudden thought came to
her—a thought born of desperation.
Seizing tbe girl with superhuman
strength, Bonnylin flung her aside,
and dashed past her, taking the precaution, however, to snatch her hat,
wrap, and tho dark, disguising hair,

From Rome comes the report, that
Pope Pius X is being kept busy trying, to prevent his numerous relatives from leaving their rustic homes
for the Eternal City. His holiness
has moro nephews and nieces than
any pope before him, nnd since lie
hns boon mado the hend of the Roman Catholic church they nro all
eager to be near him. So far only
two have succeeded . These nre Sig-
nor Parolln and his sister, Signorinu
Nina Parolin, who formerly lived at
Riese. Signorina Nina, who has become quite a grand lady since she
enme to live in this city, recently
paid a visit to her native town,
which turned out in full gala to do
her honor. In a letter to her uncle,
Pope Pius, she complained that the
visitors do not leave her ono moment's peace. They vttiht her intercession for the most varied reasons,
from blessing an infant wliich has
been named for llis holiness lo procuring all sorts of positions in the
Vatican for all kinds of people. She
is kept busy all the dny toiling her
townspeople how the Pope spends
his day, how many hours he sleeps,
what he eats, how he looks, what be
snys, whether he thinks of his townspeople onco in a while. One thing
which has pleased thein more thnn

Mr Etsell, of Wnlkerton, Suffered for
Months and Got no Relief Until
he Began the Uso of These
Of the many employees of R. Tru-
ax & Co., Walkerton, Ont., none
stands higher in the confidence of
his employers than does Mr. Thos.
.1. Etsell. He is nn excellent Mechanic, and has been in tho employ
of this firm for upwards of ten
years. But although Mr. Etsell now
ranks among the few men who aro
never absent from their post of duty,
the tittie was when he was as often
absent ns present, nil because of his
physical inability to perform his
work. For years Mr. Etsell was a
great sufferer from sciatica, and at
times the suffering became so intense
that for days he was unable to leave
the house.
During these years, Mr. Etsoll, as
may readily ho imagined, was continually on the lookout for somo
remedy that would rid him of tho
disense, but for a. long time without
success. Doctors were consulted and
although he look the treatment proscribed, it. did not help him. Thon
ho tried electric treatment, but this
also failed to give relief, and in
despair he bad about mndo up his
mind that his case was hopeless and
Hint he would be a suffering, helpless cripple to the end of his days
Then ono day a neighbor ad\ ised
him to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
At first he refused, believing they
would prove like other medicines,
hut tho neighbor wus so insistent,
having herself been greatly benefited
by these pills, so that ut last he consented. Tho remainder1 of the story
may best be told in his own words:
"When I began taking these pills,"
snid Mr. Etsell to a reporter of the
Telescope, "I hdd been off work for
three months, Tbe cords of my right
Ifg were all drawn up, and I could
only limp nbout with the aid of my
stick. The pain 1 suffered wns terrible. I rould not sleep at nil during the night, nnd I was in misery
both .day and night. At first I
thought tbe pills were doing nie no
good, but after I had taken six
boxes I fancied I wus feeling better,
and was encouraged to continue tho
treatment. After that 1 got better
every day. and by the tint: I had
taken about fifteen boxes every vestige of pain hnd disappeared. For
over a year," continued Mr. Etsell.
"I have not hnd a twinge of pain,
and although I nm forty years of
ago I feel os well as when I was
twenty. Pink l'ills cured me. and I
have no hesitation in announcing
them the best medicine in the world
for sciatica."
Tho cure of Mr. Etsell proves that
Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills are not nn
ordinary medicine, and that their
power to cure in ull troubles of tho
blood or nerves places them beyond
all other medicines. You can get
these pills from any medicino dealer
or direct by mail at 50 cents a box!
or six boxes for $2.50 b.v writing

A Philadelphia despatch says' that
much excitement was caused In-Shipping circles Monday by a report received at the Maritime Exchange,
that the British Btoaroshlp Kelvin,
bound from New York for Buenos
Ayres nnd Montevideo, wus passed
at sea 300 miles east of Capo Hat-
terns, abandoned by her crow. The
Kelvin with her cargo is valued ut
nearly $600,000, and is one of the
most valuable prizes left adrift In recent years. Her cargo, which is made
up of agricultural implements, machinery, hardware and merchandise,
is alono valued at $400,000. As this
prize lies but a short distance off
shore and directly in the track ol
vessels making their way to the
United States from South Americnn
nnd West Indian ports, it is the
opinion that she will be picked up
by somo lucky shipmaster and towed
into a harbor on tho southern coast
of tho United States. No particulars
concerning tho derelict craft other
than the fact that she was passed
abandoned and with a heavy list to
starboard by the British steamship
Hubert, at Barbados from New
Vork, could be learned. Capt. flood
cabled that the Kelvin was sighted
on October 7 in latitudo 1115, longitude 70. Owing to a heavy sea running at the time it was impossible to
board the ship. Tho Kelvin left New
York October .1, under command of
Captain McLennan. She is a new
craft, having boon launched In Glasgow last February. The vessel registers 2,266 tons not and is 3.r>2 feet
In length, 46 feet in breadth of

Dr. I'eeUhuin, watched a wusp dig u
hole lu the earth und deposit therein
nu egg, together with a spider whleh
ehe Und stung Into paralysis to feed
the grub which should lie hutched In
due course. Then she filled up the holo
wilh sand or earth aud jammed lt
down with her head.
When ut last the filling wns level
with the ground she brought a qunii-
llty of fine grains of dirt to the spot,
picked up n smnll pebble lu her uiiiuill-
bles nnd used it ns a hntnuier lu pounding tliem down with rapid Btrokns, thus
malting this spot as hard nud linn ns
the surrounding surface. Before we

nt this performance she had dropped
her stone and was bringing more earth.

Poets have been
fond of likcaiiiA
woman to a flow.i,
Her fairness is
flower like. Her
sweetness suggests
the flower fragrance.
Her very fragility
lint's its t3'pe again
in thq frail flower, which languishes when
neglected, and is so easily destroyed. It
is a pretty simile and almost as perfect as
All women love flowers, aud every woman
who grows them knows that their health
depends on daily care. Not alone are
water and sunshine necessary to the health
of the plant.- TThcir leaves and roots must
be guarded from the parasites which soou
destroy the flower's beauty and undermine
its life,
If a woman would cafe for herself as she
does for her plants she would preserve her
beauty and retain her strength far beyond
the period when the average wonwq ..991(8
old aud feels older than she looks.
Of woman's preservation of her beauty
lies in the intelligent care of the womanly
health. So close is the relation betweeu
the health of the delicate womanly organs
and the health of the whole body, that
whenever the feminine functions are deranged or disturbed the consequences ar_
felt by every nerve in the body. Severe
headache, backache, pain in tht* side, and
bearing-down pains are home wilh by eo
many thousands of women that one who is
in sound health is a rare exception. Most
women would give anything to know how
to be cured. The way is very plain. Follow the path made by more than a half a
million women who have been perfectly
cured of womanly ills and weakness.
