The nephew touched bis forelock

At his gulijo'a heels Klrkwood thread

wood, his Impatience growing.
"On th" turn, sir," he wns told.
1'or a long moment broadside to the
current, (he liont resimndrd to the,
sturdy pulling of the port sweeps. An
other moment nnd It wns In full
swing, the wntermeti bending lustily
to their task. Ship after ship wns
passed, and In keen anxiety lest he
should overlook the right one Kirk
whh1 searched their bows nnd sterna
for names, which In more than one
case proved hardly legible.
The Alethea waa not of their num
ber. In the course of some ten minutes
the watermen drove tho bont sharply
Inshore, bringing bcr up alongside an
other floating stnge, In tho shndow of
another tenement, Imth so like those
from which they had embarked that
Klrkwood would hnie been unable to
distinguish one from another.
In the bows old Hob lifted up n sten
torian voice, summoning one William.
In answer to the third ear racking
hall a mnn, clothed simply In dirty
shirt and disreputable trousers, showed
himself in the doorway above, rubbing
the sleep out of a 'red. bloated counte-
j nance wllh a mighty nnd grimy fist.
"Kilo," he said surlily. "Wofa th'

Klrkwood'a heart leaped In hope.
"Whnt sort of vessel was she?" ho
asked, half rising in his eagerness,
And again the boat was flying dawn
In midstream, the lenden wnter, shot
with gold of the morning sun, pnrtlng
sullenly beneath Its bows. Hugging
the marshy shore, (hey rounded the

Klrkwood rose, balancing himself
against the leap nnd swny of the bont.

From right to left his eager glance
swept the river's widening reach. Ves

The young mnn's lips checked n cry
that was half n sob of bitter disap

The tired boatmen eased Uion their

"How 'far's Woolwich?" Klrkwood
"Mile," said the elder man. "Tyke

Young William dashed the sweat
from his eyes, w Iprd Ills palms on his

"'Arsk th' wye to lb' Dockyard sty'

"'TIs th' shortest walk. sir. 1 'opes

He caught dexterously the sovereign
which Klrkwood, In ungrudging mor
ality, spared them of Ills store of two.
The American nodded acknowledg
ments and adieus, wllh n faded smile
deprecating his chances of winning Ihe
race, sorely handicapped ns he wns.
He was very, very tired nhd In his
heart suspected that he would fall.
Hut If he did he would nt lenst lie
able to enrnfort himself that It wns

tulnrttlon. Kllher then1 wns n strain
of the bulldog latent In (he Klrkwood
breed or else his Infaluallon gripped
him inor strontrly than, he guessed.
Yet he suspecied something of Its
power. Ho knew that this wns alto
gether nn Insane proceeding and thai
the lure that led him on was Dorothy
Calendar. A strange, dull light glowed
In his weary eyes on Ihe thought of
her. He'd go through fire nnd prater
In her service. She was costing him
dear, perhaps wns to cost him dearer
still, and perhaps there'd lie for his
guerdon no more than a "Tlinnk you,
Mr, Klrkwocdl" nt the end of Ihe pas
sage. Hut that would be no less than
his deserts. He was not to forget that
he waa Interfering unwarrantably.
The gtrl was In her father's hands,
surely safe enough there to the cas
ual mind. If iirr partnership In her
parent's fortunes were distasteful she
endtlred It passively, without com
plaint. He decided that It was his' duty to
remind himself, from time to time
that tils main Interest must bo In the
game Itself, In the solution of the rid
dle. Whatever should befall, he must
look for no reward for his gratuitous
and self 'appointed part. Indeed, he
was all but successful In persuading
himself that It was the. fascination of
adventure alone that drew him on.
A bspchsnee native whom he pres
ently encounterrd furnished mlnuto
directions for reaching the Dockyard
station of the Southeastern and Chat
ham railway, adding comfortable In
formation ,to the effect that Ihe nett
eastbound train would pass through
In ten minutes If Klrkwood would
mend his pace he could make It easily,'
with time to spare.
Klrkwood ' mended his pace accord
ingly, but, contrary to the prediction,
had no, time to spare at nil. Even as
he stormed the ticket crating the train
was thundering In nt the platform.
Therefore ''a nervous ticket agent
pnssed hlmuut n first class ticket In
stead of the' third diss he had asked
fur, nnd there was no time wherein to
lis re the mistake recti tied. Klrkwood
planked down the fare, swore and
sprinted for the cnrrlages.

A pipe helped blni to bear up while
the train wns making .Its two other
stops lu the hortiugh of Woolwich. It
consoled him little that none disputed
with him his lonely possession of the
compartment. Hint be had caught the
Sheerness 'train or that he was really
losing no time. A sense of deep de
jection had settled down upon his con
sciousness, with a realization of how
completely a' fool's errand waa this of
bis. He felt foredoomed to failure.
He was never, to see Dorothy Calendar
again, and bis brain seemed numb
with disappointment. Presently be
toppled limply over on the cushions
and fell fast asleep.
Ilattllng nnd swaying, the train left
the town behind.' J
Presently, he put aside his pipe and
stared blankly' out at a reeling land
scape, the pleasant, homely, smiling
countryside 'of Kent. A' deeper mel
ancholy tinted his mind-Dorothy Cal
endar was forever lost to him Pres
ently he toppled llniplyover on the
rushlons and fell fast asleep.
After n long time he seemed to real

had been opened to admit somebody.
Its smart closing bang shocked him
awake. He snt up, blinking, in con

The Effects of Opiates..
THAT INFANTS are peculiarly susceptible to opium and Its various prep
arations, all of which are narcotic, la well known. Even in the smallest
doses, if continued, these opiates causa changes In ths functions and growth of
the cells, which are likely to .become permanent, causing- Imbecility, mental
perversion, craving for alcohol or narcotics In later life, Nervous diseases, such
M intractable nervous dyspepsia and lack of staying; powers, are a result of dosing
with opiates or narcotics to keep children quiet In their Infancy. The rule among
physicians is that children should never receive opiates In tho smallest doses for
more than a day at a time, and only then if unavoidable.
Th administration of Anodynes, Drops, Cordials, Soothing Syrups and other
narcotics to children by any but a physician cannot be too strongly decried, and
the druggist should not be a party to It. Children who are ill need tho attention
cf a physician, and it is nothing lest than a crime to dose them willfully with nar.
