An Italian Ship Seized by Riff* Pirate* la  the Mediterranean���������Two British Steamers Looted In Malacca Strait���������Bartels,  the Buccaneer of the Pacific Coast.  That piracy on tho high seas is by no  means a thing of the past���������that it did not  cease with the suppression of the buccaneers of the Spanish main���������is well known..  But the past year seems to have been especially prolific in piratical deeds, and proves  that tho maritime powers will have to devote somo of their ships to the suppression  of this crime against tho laws of nations  ancl the welfare of mankind.  Tho last important piracy was committed something ovoi two months ago when  a ship bound from Now York - to Marseilles was captured by pirates soon after  she had entered the Mediterranean sea. It1  was tho Italian ship Freducia, commanded by Captain Maccetta.  Off the coast of Marocco she became becalmed, and being caught in a swift current was carried ashore. As soon as sho  touched an armod band of Riffs swarmod  around her in tlieir boats and boarded  her. The Riffs overpowered the crew and J  stripped the vpssel of all the money and  clothing on board and of everything else  movable., Then they took tho captain and  several sailors to hold for ransom and put  ashore, promising to "return and dispose ofthe rest of the crow later.    ,        ,   ,  While the pirates were ashore a breeze  Bprang up, and-as the ship, had only  touched lightly the crew remaining on -  board was able to'work her off, the shoal  ancl stand out over toward the coast,of  Europe out of "the pirates'reach. So far  as is known, the captain has not been ransomed nor has--Italy sent any man-of-war  to punish the Riffs.  About two months before this Italian  ship" was captured by pirates in the Mediterranean a British steamship passing  through the strait of -Malacca was captured by pirates.. It was the steamer  Pegu, commanded by Captain Ross.  ' At -End, one of tho ports where the  coasting steamers stop for a cargo of pepper, 11 Achinese men and ono woman  came on board.

A system of long distance   telephoning,**  Is reported to have been invented   by Mr.  D.

At an  exhibition of tho apparatus it,is said that  audible sounds were transmitted through  resistances equal to 40,000 miles of ordinary telegraph cable.   The result is obtain- >  ed by   having   the   original   transmitter  very   powerful   and   by   using repeaters -  which take up and magnify the' sound at'  several stations along the* Une.

To turn from the Mediterranean sea  and the Indian ocean to, waters nearer  home the case of the pirate O ir Bartels  has recently been attracting ention on  the Paciflo coast because of the sentence  to two years' penal servitude which he  has just received in Mexico. Bartels is  called "the worst pirate on the Pacific  coast."  He began  his carper on  the Paciflo  by  stealing   the  schooner   Dawn, which was J  j lying in the harbor of^San Diego.   He and !  : a man named Behn.seoretly got provisions  on board,the  unguarded craft  and  then  ono night they hoisted sail and stood down  the coast  for  the gulf  of   California for  Guadeloupe island, where they had heard  a large number of goatskins bad been col- ,  lected   and  left  with  only   two   men  to  watch  them while  the owners  took  the  first load up the coast.  The freebooters reached the island, surprised the two men in charge, seized 1,600  skins and  all  the  men's  provisions, tied  ono man to a tree  and warned   the  other  not to untie him   until  the  schooner was j  out  of sight.    Then they went   to   Santa |  Barbara  and  sold   the  plundered   skins,  while the two men on   the island lived on  roots and berries until a vessel came along .  and rescued them.  After that the adventures of Bartels  would fill a big book and be interesting  reading He stole vessel after vessel, and  when people were on board whom he did  not wish to have about he threw them  overboard. Strange to say, the people he  threw overboard, as  far as  is known, al-  arrival in that city he was at once placed  under arrest' and an official sent to bring  him back here. He was brought before  Judge Lafontaine this morning on two  charges, and- pleaded guilty to both. It  was pointed out that his offence was a  grave one" and left him liable to a. lengthy'  term of imprisonment. The counsel for  the Dr. Williams Medicine Co. stated that  his clients did not wish to press for severe  ���������punishment at this time ; they only wished to establish the fact that representing  an imitation pill to be the same as Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills was a crime' which  left the perpetrator liable to a lengthy imprisonment. ��������� -On one charge the judge  then imposed a sentence of ten days, with  the option of a fine of ten dollars, and in  the other case a sentence of two days in  jail without the option of a fine.  This decision, is likely to have a far-  reaching effect, as it seems to establish  the prinoiple that substituters and those  who sell imitations representing them to  be "the same as" Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  are liable under the criminal code, which  is in force all over the Dominion, and it  will no doubt, to a considerable extent,  put an end to this nefarious business, as it  is evident from the fact that the Dr. Williams Medicine Co. went to the expense of  bringing this man back fr6in so great a  distance as St. John that they intend  sparing no expense to protect' both the  public and themselves in such cases.  said the customer.

That's about the  way it seemed to strike Editor "Lawrence,  of the Ohio Farmer," Cleveland, Ohio. He  was afflicted with one of those colds that  nave, thousands of times over, culminated  in consumption, when not promptly cured.

The clerk having finished the  reading,  Mr. O'Meara addresses the witness   with  marked courtesy.                    ~L  "Mr. Belknap, ->you have heard the  reading of" Mr. Lamotte's testimony. Sou  have heard Mr. Rand say that two important witnesses are absent, named, a  certain Brooks, and Mrs. Nance Burrill.  You have heard Mr. Lamotte say that he  knows nothing of the whereabouts of  Nance Burrill, and that he knows nothing of Brooks. =  "Now, as -Mr. Lamotte. can. not enlighten us, and as the attorney for the  prosecution is very anxious about these  two witnesses, will you just tell the court  what you know of Mr.'Brooks, and Nance  Burrill, as connected with this case?;' '  Jerry Belknap bows to O'Meara, bows  to the Court, wipes * his mouth with a  white silk handkerchief, and begins:���������  "I came to W��������� on" professional business, and, having obtained' permission,  through Mr. O'Meara, I may state here  what that business was.   %  "I came on behalf of Miss Wardour to  investigate the noted diamond robbery. I  have been in and about W��������� for* some  time, but always in disguise, this being  the first time my real face has been visible.  "Not long ago a stranger accosted me  and put into my hands a letter. The  letter bade me follow the instructions of  the bearer of the same without fear, or  question. Now Mr. Bathurst .commands  me at all times, and like a good soldier I  obeyed my superior officer. I placed myself under the orders of Mr. Bathurst's  deputy, who is himself a clever detective,  and this is what he   told me:   "Mr.* Bathurst had been operating in  W��������� for weeks, under my very nose, and,  although I knew him, and am called a  tolerable detective, I never found him  out. He knew me, however, from the  first, knew me all along, although I, several times, changed my disguise. His disguise .was too perfect, and ho Ik too good  an:actor, ever to betray himself.  "That disguise haying served his purpose, and having been thrown aside- (oi-  good, { I can safely comply -'.with Mv.  O'Meara's request and oblige the gen tic-  man for the prosecution.  "The . missing witness known ;;s  Brooks, the red-headed drunken mechanic-,  was officer Bathurst and none other.''  Again   there   is   a   buzz   in the'eour!  room. -  The prisoner turns upon his counsel a  look of profound wonder.  Constance clasps her hands delightedly  and begins to brighten with hope.  Jasper Lamotte wears a look of consternation.  "Mr. Bathurst's instructions were  brief," resumes Mr.' Belknap after a mo-  men'ts pause. "I was to present myself to  Mr. Lamotte under some pretext of. business. I am slightly known to Mr. Lamotte  through my connection with the Wardour  case ancl could approach him without  creating suspicion. I was to accept any  commissions he might wish me to execute.  "I presented myself to Jasper Lamotte;  he liad a piece of work for me.   He   told  me that he had good reasons for wishing  the woman Nance ' Burrill out*>of the  town; lv wished her"no Harm, but she  was in his way.

Not" being informed that  her evidence was wanted'on this occasion  she is there still." "  ,i When Jerry Belknap began , his story,  Jasper Lamotte had .drawn nearer to' the  prosecuting attorney, and, before , the  story, was done, a slip of paper had made  its > way into the hands of the latter gentleman, bearing these words":���������' '  r"For God's   sake   don't   cross-examine  that witness." (   * -1 ,  ' Consequently, in response to O'Meara's  unnecessarily polite query, "Will the attorney for the prosecution he pleased to  cross-examine this witness?''���������MrY Rand  only'scowled over at his antagonist," and  shook his head savagely.1 -  "This, I trust," begins r Mr. O'Meara,  before the last witness ,is fairly *��������� seated,  "sufficiently explains the absence of these  two important witnesses; .It would seem  (that the absence1 of one at least was1 more  important"than her, presence." a Mr. La-  'motte, atKleast,'should be grateful.' He  desired Nance Burrill's absence"; she (is  not here; and as no summons was.issued  for this woman���������either"* by the prosecution or defense, no one can accuse me of  hampering the progress of the ~ law, and  of this honorable court."  Mr. Rand bounds up, fire in his eye.  "It may hot be rulable nor dignified,"  he begins hotly,   "but   I   demand a moment's hearing.  This whole trial has been  irregular, from first to last.  "The   gentleman   brings   forward   an  honorable witness from over the water; a  witness who brings out the   accused in a  new character; covers him  with   a blaze  of   glory; this   is   very   good,   and very  theatrical.   Let us grant that the accused  is Sir Clifford   Heathercliffe.    Does   that  alter the fact   that   John   Burrill   went  straight to his door, straight   to the.door  of his sworn enemy, and was never again  seen alive.   He   seeks to implicate Frank  Lamotte, and to impeach the integrity of  Jasper Lamotte, an honorable gentleman,  against   whom   there   was   never yet  a  breath of suspicion.    It will not alter the  facts in the case. Clifford Heath's enemy  was found dead close by Clifford Heath's  door!   He has blackened the character of  the dead; he has struck hard at the honorable living.    He has   flooded the court  with the testimony of mysterious strangers; ho has suppressed known  witnesses;  he has worked his will with us.    But he  has not disproved one   item of  evidence;  he has not,changed one   fact or phase of  the case.' Let us grant all he^has proven,  what have we left? The unalterable facts,  that the prisoner has   repeatedly   threatened his victim; that the murdered man  set out to   visit   the   prisoner,   at night,  through the   darkness,    and   was   found  early the following   morning,    before the  body could be removed to a safer   hiding  place, his face covered by   the   prisoner's  own linen;   his   gaping   wounds giving  evidence of a practiced hand; the prisoner's knife buried with  him; the   key   of  the prisoner's office or house lying beside  the shallow grave. Facts tell, gentlemen;  these iare facts." :  These words rush from his lips torrent  like. .  He has turned to face the jury and so  does not see that O'Meara has lounged  back to his scat, with an air of perfect  unconcern, and that he is actually signaling the judge not to stay this whirlwind;  a proceeding which so astounds that  official, that for full five "minutes the tide  of speech flows, on,, lava like.  On the audience, it has a startling  effect. He is speaking the truth. He is  reiterating facts, and facts are sure cf  instant recognition by our Yankee countrymen. .'���������"*'.  A thrill runs through the. assembly;  there comes one of those sudden revulsions of feeling, common to scenes like  this. Sir Clifford Heathercliffe disappears  from before their dazzled vision ��������� what  they see, in the light of stern facts, is  Clifford Heath, the murderer.  "These are facts," reiterates Mr. Rand,  excitedly. "Who lias seen this wonderful  Bathurst, with his bundle of testimony?  Who knows the man? Why is he not here  in court? Where is he?"  "Here!"  Clear and full the -voice rings over the  room, transfixing for one moment the  entire court; then the gavel, descends;  order is commanded with double unction, because of   tlie   recent   lapse.

A Father's Authority in France.  This father has full and   complete   authority over, them,   and   demands strict  forms of   respect.    In France a good son  subordinates the important acts of his'life  to his father's consent,   even   more .than  he should in some   cases.    On .the other  hand, the blind and tender desire that all  parents, without exception, have of keeping their children near them, of   not letting their   sons wander about the  world,  or risk the patrimony of their   ancestors,  has brought about   a   mania   for finding  employment in government offices in preference to embracing a liberal career. The  whole nation has the same   stay-at-home  ���������nd exclusive tastes.    This   permits   foreigners to bring France all that is   worst  among them, while it does   not send her  sons to seek the   great  and   good things  there may be in other countries. If a life  of perpetual  wandering  finally   becomes  useless and sterile, it is equally true that  it is debilitating and unwholesome never  to have a change of   air.   Frenchmen   do  not seem to notice this.���������October Century.  The Way "VVe Walk.  "Civilization Is responsible for the way  we walk," said Dr. S. W. Stay horn of  New York, at the Wellington. "Modern  man turns his toes out in walking, while  the'savage turns them in. Why this  difference?  "The primitive man was forced to climb  trees for fruits and nuts, and for refuge  from his enemies. Ha dwelt in caves, to  gain which he had to scale lofty cliffs.  The paths he traversed were narrow, and  oaused him to turn his feet inwardly to  keep from contact with stones arid roots.  This climbing habit begot a fashion of  turn-in toes which was transmitted from  generation to generation acquiring persistence by the law of heredity. A savage  never breathed who walked with his toes  pointing outward.  "Civilized man, on tha contrary, has  no need to practice the climbing art, and  he also has broad roadways, which allow  him to plant his feet in a way that secures  the largest and most secure base."  His Roine, In the Mountains of Tennessee.  Wonderful Sight and Great Age���������Harsh  Treatment of Young;���������Fierce Fight* Be.  tween thr. Captors Over Prey.  The mountain solitudes and fastnesses  of Tennessee, which have figured so often  of late in the stories and novels of John  Fox, Charles Egbert Craddock and others,"  have among/other respect inspiring natives many specimens of the American national bird, the' baldheaded eagle, which  makes its eyrie among the lofty and ragged  delta and crags '. and pinnacles of the  raugea It is found on the Stone mountain, the great Roane, 6,296 feet high, on  the Bald, at 5,550 feet, and the Great  Smoky range, which rises 6,630 feet, on  the Bullhead, and inJ many other lofty  places. >' ',  For these splendid birds there is a never  failing demand, and as a result there are  many' mountaineers who have become expert catchers of these mountain prizes, and  who often reap rich rewards in return for  perilous risks and daring adventures.  Young eagles bring from $40 to $80, and  occasionally $100/while eagles that are of  some ago and of great size cost as much as  $300. these being rarely captured, however Eagles which are killed "in' the attempt to capture them are valuable to taxidermists, who always find an easy market for[ these great stuffed birds Theif  feathers, especially those of* wing and tail.  are likewise sold for good prices.     *' ^ ^  /The caglo oither builds its nest upon ths  top of a' mighty tree , growing  far up on  the mountain among .myriads of twining  vines and the thickest and most, inaccessible bushes or shrubs or on the, summit of  a .high rock     It is always a large"one,  strongly   arid   comfortably" built, ��������� large  6ticks 'and* branches Vbeing laid together,  nearly'fiat and abound with twining, vines.  The spacious inside  is covered with'haix  and  mosbes, so minutely woven ^together  that no wind can penetrate.   >���������    .       ',*-���������*  In this abode the mother bird**, lays two  eggs,   which are, great curiosities.    The  long end of vthe egg tapers down to a'point,  while its color' is a dirt or  brownish red,  with many dots and  spots 'upon it. t  Ths  young'birds are driven forth from the nest  by  their savage -parents to, scratch   foi  themselves as soon as, they are able to fly,  and no training whatever is given' them  by the old  bird   ' That is left to their instinct, which hunger arid necessity develop  I*- There is no going  back to the old* home  for the young eagle,-for the mother bird  * at once tears up every-vestige of the" nest  j where they have'thriven since  birth, arid,;  ''.while they emit plaintive shrieks, darts at  | them  and, pushes them off the orags'oi  rocks,  arid as they inust take to theix  - wings or-fall this is how they learn to fly  ' at onceY'It takes three years .for a young  eagle to gain itstfull, and'complete plum-  I age and for the development of its strength.'  II Once full, grown,' provided he does , not1  I meet with a violent death, an eagle should  ' live between 80 and 160 years. t( t ,  Up' in the mountains the eagle finds it aa  hard to gam subsistence as do the feathered grumblers of tbe plains below. Ths  precariousness of i his existence and ths  wild manner, in which food is gathered  seem to give the bird greater ferocity ths  older it grows The eagles range among  the mountains and valleys in pairs, theix  young never following, but doing the bes*  they can by themselves. The stern, un  social tyranny of the older birds, begin  mng with the casting out of the eaglets,  manifests itself in later years in theix  treatment of their mates.  If the male bird be the stronger, most  of the prey belongs to him, and he allow!  the female to eat but a paltry Bhare between fierce thrusts of his beak.    If the  female is  the stronger (and she generally  is), the male bird cowers - and winces under many a fierce blow, from his unfeeling  wife, no matter how small* the morsel h������  is striving   to   get.    But   when   dangex  - threatens  no human  pair battle so formidably for themselves and each other ai  do two  eagles.    It is a noteworthy fact  that each male has but one mate during  his lifetime. If the female is killed or captured,   tbe   surviving   male, becomes an  eagle hermit and fiercer than ever.  '   Eagles are often  seen near their nests  together, but when the sun is shining they  frequently   take    their   majestic   flight  straight toward it until they disappear  from sight.    Sitting upon the mountain  side their vision is so keen that they can  see far down in the valley a sheep or young  goat, a big turkey or rooster, a small pig,  a rabbit or partridge, and almost instantaneously they descend upon their victim.  Often when a  large calf  or goat  is to be  attacked and carried off four or six of th������  great birds will unite and remove the carcass to a safe spot, when they will immediately begin to fight, it out to see which  of  them- is entitled  to the choicest bits,  and it is truly a survival of the fittest in  such  combats as these.    But an eagle i������  always confident of his strength, and rarely overreaches himself in such conflicts oi  in his desire for prey.    When lingering by  the mountain  rivers watching  for ducki  or geese, or even ���������fish, a pair of eagles will  display their natural  shrewdness.    They  swoop from opposite  directions upon  tho  fowl, which tries to escape by diving and  could outwit ono eagle.    But suddenly aa  the bird comes to the surface of the water  the second eagle seizes him.  With its wonderful power of sight, covering a radius'of'mile's,'the eagle combines  a swiftness of flight equally inarvelous.  In a Bingle night and day a full grown  eagle can fly 1,000 miles. Oftentimes the  visitor in the Tennessee mountains can  just see him like a little sjpeck in tbo sky  moving restlessly and rapidly, in majestic  oircles about the crest of a faraway peak.  The sightseers and mountaineers who love  to watch eagles always choose the break ot  dawn or a calm sunset: Then they are to  be 6een wheeling in circles and gliding  about in horizontal sweeps, just befors  starting out on a day's hunt or settling  for the night.���������Cor.

' -     .  , ' i - - - i  j Mr. Lamotte is there, subdued, yet  'affable, and Frank, too, who is paler,  than usual, but quite self-possessed.  . Near the party abov-* mentioned, may  , be seen the two city physicians, but, and  here is another 'cause for wonderment,  Doctor Benoit is not present; and, who  ever knew the good doctor to miss an  occasion like this?  '  "Business must be urgent, when it  keeps Benoit away from such a trial,"  whispers 'one gossip to another, and the  second endorses the opinion of the first.  Sitting there, scanning that audience,  with a spemingly careless glance, Constance feels her heart sink like lead in  her bosom.  1 She feels, she knows, that already in  the minds of most her lover is a condemned man. She knows that the weight  of evidence will be against ��������� him. They  have a defense, it is true, but nothing  will overthrow the'fact that John Burrill  went straight to the house of the prison-  errand was found-dead hard by.  All along she has hoped, she knew not  what, from'Bathurst: But * since lie returned Sybil's note in so strange and  abrupt a manner, she has ,rhad no word.  or signr from , him, and now she doubts  him, she distrusts everything.'  But, little   by- little,  -day,by day, ,she  j has been schooling her heart to   face one  'last desperate alternative.! Her lover shall  be saved!   Let   the ,trial go on.    Let the *  worst come. Let the fatal verdict be pro-"'  nounced, if it 'must;* after -that, perisli  the "Wardour honor.    What - if ��������� she must  trample   the ^heart,- out   of  a^ mother's  'breast?    What if she   must fling into the  ' breach the life of   a ��������� blighted, - wronged,-  helpless, perhaps dying sister woman?  Hardening her heart, crushing down  her pride, she, muttered desperately on  this last day of doubt and   suspense.  "Let them all go.'. 'Lett*'the verdict be  what; it may, ' 'Clifford Heath ���������*" shall not  Buffer a felon's doomj"   \ ������������������ -'      ���������  Then., she had 'nerved herself - to, calm-  . ness and gone to face the inevitable.  >  "Prisoner at the bar, are you guilty or-  not guilty?" *> , ^ -  The   reading   of   the   indictment has  turned all eyes upon the prisoner's   face.'  , He stands .erect,    his   head- haughtily  poised, his' clear   dark   eyes   fixed fully  upon the judge. '   '   ,  "'".-am not guilty, your.honor."  A murmur   runs   through . the   court  room.    The stranger bends to,whisper to  Constance.    The trial proceeds."   '     r   ' "Y  \   Onee���������again all   the   evidence, brought  forward at the inquest is repeated���������sworn  vto^���������dilated upon.    Once   again it presses -  down" and'the   chances  the scales down,  *^. I,. -   for the prisoner hang.light in the'balahce.  Y        One   thing   puzzles "< the"������ prosecuting  * ' attorney, and troubles the'mind' of   Jas  per Lamotte..     ."   *   " ' :  O'Meara, the   shrewd, "--,the   fox-like���������  , , O'Meara, who never lets pass a flaw or a  loophole for * criticism-- who   never -loses  t     a chance to pick and "torture and puzzle  a witness, is strangely indifferent.  * One by one the witnesses for the prose  cution pass before him;   little   by   little  ,they   build   a   mqun,tain     of    evidence  ^gainst his client. He declines to'examine  them. He listens to'their" testimony with  the air of a bored'  play-goer   at   a   very  i poor farce.   *  After tho testimony of the two masons,  ' , comes that of the   party   who   last   saw  j John Burrill in life. "They testify* as. they  did at   the   inquest���������neither   more,   nor  'less. , ���������      *������������������  }     Then come the'-dwellers   in   Mill avenue.    They,are  all there but Brooks and  > Nance Burrill.  > "Your honor,"   says   the   prosecuting  ..,        ( attorney,   ''two   of  our  witnesses���������two  ' very important ones���������are absent. , Why  , they are absent, we;do not know. Where  "' they may be found, is a profound mys-  l tery. ���������    ,  *  I "One of these witnesses, a man called  , Brooks, we believe to have been especially intimate with the- murdered man.  We think that he* could have revealed the  secret which, the prisoner took such deadly  (measures to cover up. This.man can not  be found. He disappeared shortly after  the murder.       -  "Our other witness vanished almost  , simultaneously. This other was the di-  . vorced wife of the murdered Burrill. She",  too, knew too much. Now I do not insinuate���������I do not cast any stones, but  there are some, not far distant, who  could explain these two mysterious disappearances, 'an they would.' " i  "An they .will!" pops in   the   hitherto  mute O'Meara.    "They'll' make .several  knotty points clear to  your   uriderstand-  , ing, honoi'-ible sir.""'"' i  ���������'"f    A retort rises to   his   opponent's   lips,  ; and a, wordy  war   seems   imminent, but  the   crier   commands   "Order     in    the.  ��������� Court," and the two antagonists glare at  ' each other mutely, while the trial moves  on.  Frank Lamotte comes upon the witness stand. As before, he tells, .nothing  "new; , ��������� ..' .���������.,....  .'*. ...  He was aware that, .his   brother-in-law"  possessed some secret Of-Doctor   Heath's.  Did not know the nature of   it, .-but.inferred'from words. Burrill .had-let.drop,-  that it was of a damaging character.  Upon being   questioned, as   .to,his  acquaintance -with the prisoner,   and   what  he knew of his  disposition ; and   temper,  he replies that he has' known the prisoner since he first came to . W���������; liked him  , very much; never   had any personal misunderstanding,, although of   late the prisoner   had;-chosen', to   tr^'tvham"-vyith  *. marked, coldness.

"Mr. Lamotte, what can !  you tell us of this missing, witness,  Brooks?" '*  * Mr. Lamotte stares in ji-ii' * -i-^topish-  ment, then instinctively scenti .���������������������������,������������������ (',-u-rc-r  ahead, he makes an effort to ralJy his  forces that have been scattered by the  lawyer's unexpected bomb.  "What do I know of the man Brooks?"  he repeats slowly. "I don't, comprehend  you, sir."  '' I asked a plain question,'' retorts the  lawyer, crisply.  ".I believe the man has been in my  employ," ��������� ventures the witness, as if  making an effort to recall some very insignificant personage.   ' --> ������  "When?"     '     - .    ,, ,f'   .  "That I do not remember*, sir."  "Ah! Perhaps you have forgotten when  last you saw this fellow, Brooks?" '  - "I think-I saw him,- for the'last time,'  two days before my son-in-law was killed.  I was at the depot, starting for the city.'*  I think Brooks left- town on the same  train." ' <       " ���������        *_   -j r  "And you have not seen him since?"  "Not to my knowledge." "  "Make an effort to think,', sir. Brooks  has been seen in* W��������� since.; It is known  that he has visited Mapleton. Try to recall that visit." "*"'   ,   ,  Mr. Lamotte ponders anil falls into the  trap. ,     ,    . |       ,  ��������� "A man came to Mapleton on tlie day  of Mr.,,Burrill's funeral," he says, slowly. "I believe, upon reflection,, that it  was Brooks; he wished to see the body."  "Did you see this'man on that occasion?" : * ���������  "1 did; for a moment only, he came to  me with his request.',''  ",You are'siire this man wa-3* Brooks?"  "Not beyond a doubt.

Mr. Lamotte looks^   disconcerted*, 'for a  moment.    * ' V        ,  , Bui O'Meara goes vigorously on, leaving him no time to collect his , thoughts.  "Now,, _,Mr. Lamotte,- what" do you  know of this woman ' who calls,' herself  Nance Burrill?" . *" /   *  "Nothing," with'a glance of offended  dignity. -  i   "Nothing!   I   am   told   that   she has  worked- in your mills."  "It-ispossible; I am not my own overseer, however, and do not know all my  people."  ''Have you ever heard- that this wo7  man could tell things that would not reflect credit upon your dead son-in-law?"  -"No, sir," haughtily.  '' Were you aware that this woman is  not to be found, before learning the same  in court?"  "No, sir! I consider your questions irrelevant. ''  "Possibly," retort*; O'Meara, drily. "I  have not more to ask, sir." Then turning  toward the jury, he says, rapidly :���������  "May it please your honor and the gentlemen of the jury, just here I have a  word to say:���������  '' You have heard the evidence ' against  my client; you have heard the life and  honor of a -high-minded gentleman,  against whom there was never before a  breath of scandal or blame, sworn away  by a handful of saloon loafers, and a  pack of ignorant old women.  ; * "I mean no disrespect to the loafers or  the old women in question: I' suppose if  the good Lord had not intended them for  what they are, he would have made them  otherwise���������and then there would have  been no evidence against - my * client. I  name them what they are, because, when  this honorable jury weighs the evidence,  I want them to weigh the witnesses as  well." ,,   ^  "The gentleman wished to say one  word," sneers the prosecution.    "Has he  The Honorable,. George Heathercliffe  turns toward the prisoner,' and a smile  deepens the blue* of his eyes, and intensifies the kindly expression' of his handsome  mouth.  "I have'seen the prisoner before," he  replies, still smiling. "  "Have you known -him previous to  his advent in W���������?*.' .  "I have."  ������ "For long?",  ,"For many years.*" J  ' "My honorable opponent has hinted  that there is a, mystery hanging about  this man. He even hazards a guess that  his name "may not be Clifford Heath.  Do you know aught of this mystery?!'    (  "I do." ,  "Does the prisoner bear a name not  his own?"  "He does not bear his own name entire." ' ���������   '  " Mr.'Heathercliffe; who is this man  who calls himself Doctor Clifford Heath?"  "He is Sir'Clifford Heathercliffe, and  my elder brother." "   ,  CHAPTER XLII. '   ���������  There is a profound sensation   in  the  court room.  Constance-Wardour calchrs >'T brpr.tii,  and bends forward to look ar, her lover,  the color coming and going hotly in her  cheeks. She had chosen to hear nothing  of his past, and so Mr. O'Meara has introduced the Honorable George Heattier-  cliffe, that morning, saying only: Y'A  most important witness, Constance ;,a'  strong witness."      . , ���������   I  "'.'He is-Sir;Clifford  Heathercliffe,   and  my >elder brother." - ���������    .  '..'Mr. Rand,i the prosecuting attorney,  moves uneasily in his seat, and begins  to wonder what small shot O'Meara holds  back of this big shell.      , .,     .   *  j Without seeming to notice the, sensation created by his self-possessed witness,'  O'Meara goes on rapidly. *"       ' Y-  V How Jong has your brother, Sir Clif-  of our father, and possessed over' 'him, a  strong magnetic influence... ' He was less  than two years, older than Clifford, ,and  the two closely resembled each other.' {  "From their academic days, Herbert  was an idler, a spendthrift, a squire .of  dames, par excellence.- Clifford was devoted to study,- and not enamored of so-  1 ciety. , '  "It is not   my purpose- to follow   step  by   step   the   downward   career " of   my  brother Herbert, only such ^of   his   misdeeds as affected Clifford need be brought  forward here.  , ''I have said that, Herbert was a spendthrift. He was perpetually borrowing of  Clifford, and always'in debt.   '  "Wlien Clifford, who had a monomania for the medical profession, , announced his intention to go to Germany  and pursue his studies there, the first  trouble came. ',)''��������� *  / , "Herbert,who for his own selfish ends,  wished to Jceep Clifford and '* his 'purse  nearer, Cliffe Towers, incited' my father  to oppose the scheme. This was easy.  Lord Heathercliffe did not believe-in the*  dignity of labor, 'arid the two voted this  new departure a family disgrace. , They .  said so much, and in such,offensive language, thai Clifford, in open defiance' of  his father's commands, -turned his back  upon us all, and went to Heidelberg.  "But, Herbert's career had, only begun. In a little while it was," discovered  that our father's name "had been  forged'  Evidently his tersely told storyof brotherly sacrifice, has touched the "human-  ness" of that 'strangely-mixed , audience.  During,the moment of clamor and confusion, Doctor   Benoit   enters   the court -  ��������� room^ and almost unobserved seats   himself* beside the New York medical experts.  A   smile   of    gratification    rcomesV--,to  O'Meara's face   at the   sight of,this Lata .  arrival, and when the court is restored to-  quiet, he says:���������    *' - ��������� *  "Let Doctor Benoit be sworn."  The doctor'testifies as. follows:,���������        ,  Being called to examine the wounds  upon the person' of John- Burrill, he  found that they could not have been  made with ; the knife found with tha-''  body. The identical knife, being put' into-  his hands, he explains how a cut mado-  by such a keen, heavy weapon, must ap-.  pear and describes the knife that* must,  have been used upon tho body.   , ,  "It was a smaller weapon," he' says,,.  "thinner bladed and much lighter. Is  must have been shorter by'two -or, three  inches.'' ' ' ,  Then he adds that the   surgeon's knife  has never been, used   upon   a body, the  blood has'been smeared on by an inartistic hand.     ,   , .. ���������*  '   "It would be impossible," he says, "to  withdraw   this' knife   from   a   bleeding.  wound with no other 'blood   marks-,than ,-  those it bears." . , <,        '  Doctor Gaylor and Professor   Harrington corroborate" his every statement,   and  Ui  ���������.a- .  t   I  ford Heathercliffe,,been in America?"-.  t "For more than four years." ��������� /  ''"Until you received the telegram ^calling you to his aid, did   you know where  , to find your, brother ?

He draws forth a mo-  .rocco letter case, and taking therefrom  a slip ,of paper hands it to O'Meara. That  astute gentleman'passes it carelessly, on to  the clerk, saying:u'tRead it please."  Rising to receive'the   paper  the   clerk  reads:���������     j iIt '  ' "Honorable George Heathercliffe, -  "[  Y-       "*   "Cliffe Towers, etc., etc  \  "Come1 at once to" W���������, R,��������� County.���������  Sir Clifford is in deep trouble.  ,.    ���������       --'���������.

"That is all, for the present, Mr.  Heathercliffe," he says, suavely, and  amazement sits on every countenance.

He is   known   to   you, I   presume?"  .    "He is," bowing gravely.  "Now, Mr. Heathercliffe, it strikes me  as singular that an English gentleman  should be on such familiar terms with a  Yankee detective; and still more strange  that an English nobleman should be  masquerading in America, as a country  physician. I should like an explanation  of these things." -  " My brother came to America   on   account of family troubles, sir. Is it neces-.;  sary that I make a fuller statement?"

The witness turns an , unruffled countenance towards the judge.-  "If the Court will permit me to tell  my brother's story in , my own way (it  will take some time,) I shall be glad, to  enlighten this legal gentleman."  The Court gives its gracious permission; Attorney Rand resumes his seat;  O'Meara fairly grins his delight; Constance leans forward, breathlessly; the  prisoner casts one look about him, and  then rests his head upon his hand; there  is breathless silence in the court, as the*  Honorable George Heathercliffe begins:���������[  than ever his adoring slave.  "I can not prolong   this   recital.    It is  needless. Herbert ran his race of infamy.  ��������� My father died broken hearted.     Clifford  searched all England  to   bring   Herbert,  then a fugitive, to his father's death bed;  I but the   officers   of   justice   were before  , him.    They ran him down in an obscure  provincial   village,   and,    to  escape   the  consequences, of   his   misdeeds,   Herbert  Heathercliffe crowned his life of mad folly  by dying a suicide's death.k  "And now I must turn a page in my  own personal history:���������  "Prior to my father's death, I had  formed an attachment for the only  daughter of a proud and wealthy country  gentleman, our neighbor. But I was a  younger son, and by my father's will,  made upon his death-bed,' Clifford was  his heir. Herbert had squandered half  our father's fortune, but a handsome sum  still remained.  "Realizing the hopelessness of my  suit, I was preparing to quit England,  taking with me my mother's legacy,  which would amply suffice for 'a bachelor's wants, but was too meager a sum  to lay at the feet of a beauty and an heiress. To make my departure more bitter,  I had learned that the woman of my  choice returned my affections.  "Then Sir Clifford swooped down  upon me. Before I could guess his intent, he had sought and gained the consent of my wife's father; had transferred  to me all his fortune, reserving only his  mother's legacy, which was tlie same as  mine.

"Would it not bo quite an easy matter  for some one who had obtained possession-  of your key, and was sufficiently familiar  with the bearings of the office to moye  about in the dark, or by the dim firelight, to enter that office, remove the  sux*geon's knife' from its case, ��������� pilfer a  handkerchief from tbe coat ��������� pocket, and  escape unseen?"

"If this person having the key, "the  knife, and the handkerchief, all in his  possession, should go and fling them all  into the old cellar on the Burns' place,"  you would call that singular?"

"This, gentlemen, is. the true reason  why Sir Clifford Heatherciiffe, the truest,  the noblest of English gentlemen, came  among you as one of yourselves.  "I have one more word to say.

"Sir Herbert wau the pet and   favorite  to grief together; quarreled fearfull, and,  when Herbert fled for his life, Burrill  with his wife made his escape to America. All that I have said concerning this  Burrill will be verified by Detective  Bathurst."  Then turning toward   Mr.   Rand: "Is  my explanation sufficient, sir?"

To  save her  boy,   Jochebed,   the  mother of  ! little Moses, had puc   him   in that queer  ' "boat and launched him.    His "sister Mir-  - ,- lam   stood   on   the   bauk watching that  - precious craft. *-* She was far enough off  not to draw attention to the boat, but  near enough to > offer,  protection.

And then one divine  hand was put against the back of Moses  and tbe other hand against the pulseless  breast, and God laid him softly down on  Mount Kebo, and then the lawgiver, lifted in the Almighty's arms,was carried to  the opening' of a cave and placed in a  crypt, and one stroke of the divine hand  smoothed, the features into an everlasting  calm, and a rock was rolled to the door,  and tbe only obsequies, at which God did  all the 6 (bees of priest and undertaker  and gravedigger and mourner, were ended.  , Oh,' w4is not Miriam, the sister of  "Moses, doing a good thing, an important  thing, a glorious thing when she watched  .the boat woven ot river plants and made  water tight with asphaltum, carrying its  one passenger? Did, she not put all *>he  ages of time and of a" coming eternity  under obligation when she defended her  helpless brother from the perils aquatic,  reptilian and ravenous? , She it was that  brought ��������� that wonderful babe and hii  "mother together, so that he was reared to  > be tbe deliverer of his nation, when other*  wise, if saved at all' from the rushes of  the Nile,' ho would have been only ont  more of tho God-defying Pharaohs; foi  Princess Thermutis of the,bathing house  would have inherited the crown of Egypt,  and as'she had no ohild of her own thil  adopted child would have come to coronation.

A Nonsuch in History.  "Go home," some one might have said  cessful men of all professions and trades  who are indebted' to an-. older sister for  good influences, and* perhaps for an education or a 'prosperous start to let it be  known, hundreds would testify. God  knows how many of our Greek' lexicons  and how much of our schooling were paid  for by money that would otherwise have  gone for the replenishing of a sister's  wardrobe. "While the*" brother sailed off  for a resounding sphere, the sister watched  him from the banks,of self denial.  The Elder Slater's Guiding Hand.  Miriam was the eldest of the family ;;  Moses' and Aaron, her brothers,' were  younger. Oh,, the power of the elder sister  to help decide the brother's character for  usefulness and for heaven! She can keep  off 'from her, brother more .evils than  Miriam could have driven back waterfowl or crocodile from the - ark of bulrushes. The older sister decides the direction in^which the cradle boat, shall sail.  By gentleness, by good sense, by, Chris'-'  tian principles she 'can "turn it towards  the palace, - not jof a wicked .Pharaoh', but  of a holy' God, and a brighter princess  than Thermutis ' should' lift him out of  noril, even religion, whose ways are ways  of pleasantness and all her paths are  peace. Ihe older sister, how much tbe  world owes her! Born 'while yet the lam-  ily was in limited circumstances, she had  to hold and take care of her younger  brothers. And if there* is anything that  excites my sympathy it is a little girl  lugging round a great fat child and getting her ears boxed because she cannot  keep him quiet. By the time she   gets to  it  'to Miriam.   "Why risk yourself out there  ; alone on the banks of the Nile, breathing  {the miasma 'and   in   danger of being a*-     e ^ ��������� _���������     0   {tacked of wild beast or ruffian? Go home!" I young womanhood she ,is pale and worn  out and her attractiveness has been ��������� sacrificed on the altar of sisterly fidelity, and  she is consigned to celibacy, and society  calls her by an unfair name, but in heaven they call her Miriam. In most families the two most undesirable places in  the record of births are the first aud the  last���������the first because she is worn out  with the cares of a home that cannot  afford to hire help, and. the last because  she is spoiled as a pet. Among the grand*  est equipages that sweep ' through the  streets of heaven will be those occupied  by sisters who sacrificed themselves for  brothers. They will have the finest of the  Apooalyptic white horses, and many who  on earth looked down upon them will  have to turn out to let them pass, the  charioteer crying: "Clear the wayl A  queen is coming 1"  Blessing; or Curse.  Let sisters not begrudge tho   time  and  care bestowed on a brother.   It is hard to  believe that   any   boy   that you know so  wall as your   brother   can   ever turn out  auything very useful.   Well, he may   not  be a   Moses.    There   is   only one of that  kind needed for (5,000  years.    But   I tell  you what your brother will   be���������either a  blessing or a ourse to society and a candidate for happiness or   wretohedness.    He  will, like Moses, have the choice between  rubies and living   coals,   and your influence will have much to do   with   his decision.    He   may  not, like Moses, be the  deliverer of a nation,   but   he may, after  your father and mother are   gone, be the  deliverer of a household; What thousands  of homes to-day are piloted   by brothers 1  There   are   properties ;./*nb'w well invested  and yielding   inconMp'*-for  the support of  sisters and   youngerr^brother  because the  elder brother rose to the   leadership from  the day the father lay down to die. Whatever you do   for your brother   will   come  back to you again.   If you set him an ill  natured,    ceusorious,   unaccommodating  example,   it  will   recoil   upon you from  his own irritated   and   despoiled nature.  If you, rby patience   with   his   infirmities  and by nobility of character,   dwell with  him in the few years of your companionship, you will have your counsels reflected  back upon you some da>    by his splendor  of behavior in some crisis where he would  have failed but for you.  Don't snub him. Don't depreciate hla  ability. Don't talk discouragingly about  his future. Don't let Miriam get down  off the bank of the Nile and wade out  and upset che ark of bulrushes. Don't  tease him. Brothers and sisters do not  consider it any harm to tease. That spirit  abroad in the family is. one oi the   mean-*  j No.    Miriam,   the   sister,   more lovingly  * watched and bravely defended Moses, the  I brother.   Is he worthy her care and courage?    Oh.   yes; tho   60   centuries   of the  world's history havo never had   so   much  Involved in the arrival of any ship at any  port as in   the   landing   of   that papyrus  boat calked with bitumen!

He   had  ���������uch   remarkable   beauty   in    childhood  t that, Josephus says, when he was carried  , along the road people stopped to   gaze at  !' him and workmen would leave their work  to admire him.    When the king playfully  put his crown upon this boy, he threw it  [off indignantly and put his foot on It.  \     The king,* fearing that this might be a  ialgn that the child might yet take down  bis crown, applied another test. According to the Jewish legend, the king ordered  * two bowls to be put before the child, one  j containing rubies and the other burning  !- eoals, and if he took che coals he was to  \ live and if he took the rubies he was to  |^ie.    For some reason the child took one  * of the coals and put it in his mouth, bo  that his life was spared, although it  burned the tongue till he was indistinct  <ef utterance ever after. Having come to  manhood, he spreads open the palms of  his hands in prayer, and the Red sea  parted to let 2,500,000 people escape. And  he put the palms of liis hands together  in prayer, and the Bed .sea closed on a  strangulated host.  Burial of Moses.  His life so unutterably grand, his burial must be on the same scale. God would  let neither man nor saint nor archangel  have anything to do with weaving for  bim" a shroud or digging for him a grave.  The omnipotent God left his throne in  beaven one day, and if the question was  asked, "Whither is the King of tho Uni-;  verse going?" the answer was, "I am  going down to bury Moses." And the  Lord, took this mightiest of men to the  top of a hill, and the day was clear, and  Moses ran his eye over the magnificent  I range   of   country.    Here   the   valley of  * Esdraelon, where the final battle of all  nations is to be fought, and yonder the  fountains   Herrrion   and   Lebanon   and  ! Oerizim and the hills of Judaea, and the  village of Bethlehem there, and the city;  of Jericho yonder, and the vast stretch;  Of landscape that almost took the old lawgiver's breath away as he looked at It.  And then without a pang, as I learn from  tihe statement that the eye   of Moses was  r'immed and his natural force unabated,  touched   the   great   lawgiver's   eyes  est and most devilish. There is a teasing  that is pleasurable and is only another  form of innocent raillery, but that which  provokes and irritates and make tha eye  flash with auger is to be reprehended. It  would be , less blameworthy to take a  bunch of thorns and draw them acrdss  your sister's cheek or to take a knife and  draw its sharp edge across your brother's  hand till the blood sjurts, for that would  damage only-the body, but teasing is the  thorn and the knife scratching and lacerating the disposition and the soul.' It is  the eurse of innumerable households that  the brothers tease the sisters and the sisters the brothers. Sometimes it is the  color of'the1 hair, or the shape of the features or an affair of the heart. Sometimes  it is by revealing a secret or by a suggestive look or a-' guffaw, or, an "Ahem!"  Tease! Tease! Teasel For mercy's sake,  quit it. Christ'says,' "He that hateth his  brother is a murderer." Now, when you,  by teasing, make your brother or sister  hate, you turn him or her into a murderer  or murderers. >  Beware of Jealousy.  "    Don't let jealousy'ever touch a  sister's  soul, as it so often does, because her brother gets more honor or more means.  Even Miriam, the heroine of the text,  was struck by that evil passion of jealousy. She had possessed unlimited influence over Moses,, and now he marries,  and no't only so, but marries a black woman from Ethiopia, and Miriam is so disgusted and outraged at Moses, first because he had married at all, ' and next  because he had practiced miscegenation,  that she is drawn into a frenzy, and then  begins to turn white and gets [white as a  corpse and then whiter than a corpse.  Her complexion is like chalk���������the fact is.  she has the Egyptian leprosy. And now  the brother whom she, had defended on  the Nile comes to her rescue in a prayer  that brings her restoration. Let there be  no room in all your house for jealousy,  either" to sit 'or stand. It is a leprous  abomination. ' Your brother's success, O  sisters, is your success! His victories will  ' be your 'victories." * For while Moses the  brother led the * vocal ' music after the  crossing of the '.Red sear Miriam the sister, with two sheets of shining brass uplifted and' glittering in,the sun,'led the  instrumental music, clapping the cymbals  till the last frightened neigh 'of p-irsuing  cavalry horse was smothered in the wave  and the last' Egyptian helmet went  under. *- ' Y  How strong it makes a 'family when,all  the sisters and brothers stand together  and what anj awful wreck when they disintegrate, quarreling about a father's will  and making the surrogate's office horrible  with their wrangle! Better,, -when you  were'little children m the nursery, 'that  with your playhouse mallets you had accidentally killed ;eacht other fighting across  your cradle ' than' that, having come to  the age of maturity and having in your  veins and arteries the blood of the same  father and mother, you*fight each other'  aoross the parental grave in the cemetery.

After he gained ~a fortune he encamped one day iii Husam, his native  place, and made a 'banquet, and^among  the great military men who were to dine  he invited a plain miller and his'wife  who'lived near by and who, affrighted,  oame, fearing some harm would be done  them. The miller and his wife were  placed one on each side   of the general at  - the ai<ble. The general asked the miller  all about his family, and the miller said  that he had two brothers and a sister. "No  other brothers?" "My younger brother  went off with the army many years ago  and no doubt was long ago killed." Then  the general said, "Soldiers, I am this  man's younger brother, whom he thought  was dead." And how loud was the oheer  and how warm the embrace!  Brother and sister, you need as much  of an introduction to each other as they  did. You do not know each other. You  think your brother is grouty and cross  and queer, and he thinks you are -selfish  and proud and unlovely. Both wrong.

Gentlemen:���������Ten years ago I was attacked with neuralgia, and,,though treated by six doctors, the disease grew worse  and nearly drove me insane. I was for  one summer an out-door patient at the  hospital here, but only got temporary relief.     - *  I was sleepless for nights, my digestion  was bad, and I would feel a pain in my  stomach every time I ate anything.  Day after day I suffered the most intense  agony, and I often- wonder I didn't go"  crazy. I took endless medicines given me  by medical men, and getting worse, I became utterly disheartened.  One day my deliverance came. A lady  who had suffered just as I had told me  that Paine's Celery Compound had cured  her. I used the compound as a last resort,  and it simply made a new woman of me.  The pain vanished; my eyesight, which  was impaired, returned, and I felt myself  growing well, and I never felt happier in  my life. I am now well and strong, and  all my health and happiness are due to  Paine's Celery Compound. I will always  gratefully remember the medicine that  cured, and will speak a good word for it.  Mes. Thos. McMaster,  46 Cumberland St.. Torento.  Probably the*most prevalent trouble oi /���������  this continent to-day is" nervous prostra-*  ' tion.. How frequently we hear) this term;--  and yet how' few appear to realize Its fuflY.  deadly import. -Nervous- prostration is tt*������  i be found?among people of all-walks laTY  life, and among children as well as adults.   ,,  Among young people' it is often the result'  of our high pressure system of education*'^''V* ���������*,'  Among those of more'mature years ltnuifVc! f \  be due to   the cares of business, or over-* , ^-������  work, or worries in the home. ��������� But what* ',  ''  ever the cause, the inevitable result is ��������� Y   ���������  breaking down both mentally and physio   4'  ally unless prompt, measures are taken te < '  stay the ravages of the disease and restore      T,,  the shattered nerve forces to their normal  condition.   One such sufferer who has it*  gained health gives her experience for the  benefit of those less fortunate.   Miss Edith  Draper, who resides with her parents al'  Belhaven,  Ont., is a young lady who li  very popular among her circle of acquaint*  ances, and they all rejoice at her restora*  tion to health. - To a reporter who called  upon-her she gave the following particulars concerning her illness and oure. "'You  know," said the young lady,  "how ill!  was last winter when my friends feared  that I was going into a decline.   In the  early part of the winter both father anil  mother were attacked with la grippe, and  "*  I had to look after them as well as attend  to vhe household work.   The strain waa  more than I could stand, and the result  was I fell ill.   The doctor who was called ,  in said my trouble was nervous prostration, and that it would take considerable  time for me to recover.   Under his care I  was after a short time able to leave my  room and  go about the house, but my  nerves did  nou   seem   to   regain   thehr  strength.     My  limbs would twitch   as  though I had St. Vitus' dance, I was bus*  ject to headaches, had a very poor appetite  and was so weak that I could scarcely go  about.   I had been advised to try Pink  Pills and one day spoke to the doctor about  them, and he said he believed they would  do me good.   I got three boxes, and by the  time I had used them I felt they were helping me and I got a further supply.    By  the time I had taken six boxes I was feel*  ing stronger and better than I had for  years.   All the twitching in my limbs had  disappeared  and  my  nerves   seemed  as  strong as ever they had been.   I still took  the pills for a little while longer to make  certain that the cure was complete, and  since the day I discontinued them I have  not felt the slightest return of the trouble.  I feel that my present excellent health is  due to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I am  glad to be able to recommend them to any  one whose nerves are in a shattered con*-  dition."  Dr. "Williams' Pink Pills are a tonio  medicine. By their use the blood is renewed and; the nerves made strong and  Vigorous, arid in thiB way disease is driven  from the system. As a spring medicine  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are unsurpassed.  If feeling languid or " out-of-sorts" a box  or two will restore you to vigorous ao-  tivity. Ask for Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  for Pale People and take nothing else.  .Y'<v,  **; Vd;  ..  t'*?v  %     *��������� "*������TiV',l  -tf. n "v j  >-'ry-''iiJ  ''lY1 < Ift"?
