THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-THURSDAY MORNING-, MAY 20. 1897;
tCopywrlsht, 1S97, by
Major Harrington Is afraid that ho must
loso his old home, "Scarlet Oaks," whero
ho lives with his niece, Bsthor, lor the
mortKaco la duo, and tho now from his
foreign Investments Is such that ho can
not prevent foreclosure. I'nul Uronson la
on hand In thn Interest of tho Trust com
pany that holds tho mortgage. Paul In nn
nrdent bicyclist, and ho has fallen In lovo
with KMthcr. He has taught Esther to
Tldo, on the sly, because her uncle Is vio
lently opposed to tho sport. Esther Is
unxloua to overcome this prejudlco and
to get her undo to look with fnvor upon
Paul. She gets her undo to take her to
nee tho finish of tho Mllllngton-Irvlns road
race, the courso of whoh Is near their
home. Tho major is affected by tho ex
cltlmr event, and Is much astonished to
eee Paul come in tho winner. Ho cannot
share Esther's enthusiasm, howover, nnd
goes homo moro disgusted than pleased
with the whole affair. The next morning
Paul is riding nlono nnd overtakes u
horseman. They race. Tho horso stum
bles and lames himself badly. Tho horse
man Is alarmed, for ho Is In hasto to de
liver an Important message. Paul offers
to carry It to Its destination. It proves to
bo a cablegram ft. Major Harrington. It
Is tho day on which Scarlet Oaks is to bo
eold, and when Paul brings It to tho do
Bpondent owner ho finds that ho has been
tho bearer of good news. A turn of for
tune saved Scarlet Oaks to Its owner. Tho
major appreciates tho fact that the bicy
cle has been tho messenger of good tid
ings, and Paul is heartily welcomed to
"Yes; a lot of scoundrels, altogether,
I should say."
Tho major tipped back In his ejinlr
anil looked qulzzliisly at Paul and
Tlipy were nil In tho drawing room
after dinner. Tho excltlnp day at Scar
let Oaks had terminated happily for all.
So much had there been to talk about
nnd arrange that they had met for tho
fir&t time with any sensa of leisure.
"As scoundrelly a plot as I ever knew
of," proceeded tho major. "How long
have you been riding tho wheel, Es
IhdrV" "Ever since- last fall," said Esther.
"Just think, twenty-four hours ngo I
wouldn't have dared admit that to
"H'm," said tho major. "I suppose
that very likely now you two think I'll
let you have a 'bicycle wedding,' with
tho parson In knickerbockers, after tho
most npproved modern fashion, eh'.'
And perhaps you think I'll add to tho
mirth of tho occasion by wearing a
sweater and a golf cap?"
"Well, we may let you off from thnt,"
said Paul, ' but I'll be willing to guar
antee that you youuelf will be riding
the wheel within a month."
The major roared.
"Ah, that's a good one Just like all
the rest of the cycling fraternity," said
"The fact Is, we owe every bit of our
luck to the breaking down of the mes
senger this morning," said Paul, after
certain demonstiatlona not In words.
"It strikes me that it Is due to the
fact that you were there on your
wheel," said Esther, meekly.
"Or that wo raced in the first place.
Say Esther, I hope ou'll always wc.ir
your hair that way no matter how tlu
fusnlon changes, will you'.'"
"I will wear It tills way as long as I
"At least as long as I do," corrected
Paul. "I hope the other fellow won't
have the time I had this morning get

Esther. "Do you know that you have

of nothing in particular."
"Well this is. The funny thing is that
women always have to be told tho same

There was a sudden, sharp crunching
of tho gravel outside of the window.
Paul stepied to It and cautiously drow
the curtain a little. Turning, ho beck
oned to Esther.
"Cnmo here nnd look at this," he said,
The major, mounted on Paul's wheel,
attended by tho faithful James, was
THE CONQUERED HERO LAY
gallantly struggling with it on tho
smooth, white drive by the clear, late
"Egad, James," he puffed, "If I don't
believe I've almost g"ot tho hang of the
devilish thing now. You may let go of
me, James, in a minute; no, not just
yet. Oh, III teach both of those younsr
rascals a trick or two and show th'oni
I'm not too old to come up with their
modern athletics. By Jove! Jame3, I
think it's a pretty good scheme for me
to surprise them this way, don't you?
Hold nn, there; I'm nearly off.'
"Oh, what a sweet revengo Is this,"
whispered Paul to Esther. "All I want
In to seo him get one good fall. Look at
him, Esther." The two were convulsed
"Dear uncle," said Esther. "This Is
the first time I ever saw him without
his dignity. This Is Just like him; he
i.ever gould give in to anything."
"Its a ilrst-rato plan, sir," James
was saying. "Don't rest so much
weight on the handle bars, sir. I re
member when Jlr. Paul was teaching
Miss Esther to ride"
"Yes, you villian, you were in that
"Yea, sir, certainly. As I was say
ing, we nil thought it was quite clev
er for Miss Esther to learn to rldo
without your knowing it, and Mr. Paul
said could you keep both of your feet
on tho pedals, sir; that's better ho
said that he'd like to get you on a
wheel Just once and ho'd make you
wish you knew what you were talking
The major came within a hair's
breadth of toppling over, but his long
training In the saddle and his natural
confidence of poise stood him In good
stead, and ho righted himself in a
In the bay window Paul and Esther
choked with delight.
" Ton my soul, If I don't believe he'll
learn In ono lesson," said Paul. "Look
at him; he sticks to It like a cowboy
to a bucking broncho." Esther, I can't
stand this any longer, I've got to go
down and help him."
"Not yet." said Esther. "Let's see
what may happen to him presently. I
haven't forgotten my own experience
of his rival In 1701, with the first cattle
"You may let go of me in a min
ute, James, In a minute. I'm getting
It down pretty fine now. Great Scott,
If I ever thought I'd come to this
after living on horseback half of my
life. Think of getting Esther to hood
wink me tho first tlmo she ever did
In her life and you lying to me like
a Turk nil the tlmo In the bargain."
"Certninly, sir; you see I was very
fond of tho wheel nor-df, nnd Mr. Paul
was too, nnd being ns he and Miss Es
ther were very fond of each other"
Rome strange sound broke upon tho
still night air. Tho major would havo
fallen had not tho faithful James held
"I could swear I heard somo one
laugh," said the major.
"For goodness' sake, be careful," paid
Esther. "I don't want him to see us
"I Bhall die If I watch this much
longer," replied Paul;
"No, sir," said James; "it's quite im
possible, sir. Now, you're doing so well,
would you llk to try a llttlo by your
self" "Yes. of courso," replied the major,
"but If er er, If I should think I was
going to fall, what shall I do?"
"I won't lot you fall, sir, and all you
have to do ia to lean in tho name direc
tion with your wheel and It will right
Itself. Shall I let go, sir? You can take
It all right now,"
"Prepare for tho worst," whispered
"If he- falls I slrttll simply shriek,"
"Yes, yes." the major was saylnp.
"Kr, vlmt do you do when ono of theso
Infernal pedals yta away from your
foot all tho tlmo?"
"Catch It 03 It comes up, sir; that's
the way that was neat. Now, Just
keep on pedaling and don't bo afraid."
The devoted James had In a moment
of flbsont-nilndcdncss used a wonl
which even tho terror of tho wheel
could not reconcile to an old soldier.
"Afraid," ho snorted, In a sudden
burst of confidence. "Well, I've stood
before cannon, nnd If I'm afraid of a
bicycle Let go, James."
Three seconds later 'tho bravo hut
conquered hero lay looking up at the
Tho bay window was thrown open
nnd Paul and Esther, laughing help
lessly, stood revealed In tha moonlight;
on the velvety sward tho major, too
much astonished to rise, lay as though
petrified; James, his forward move
ment arrested ns though by magic,
halted in an zement. For one mo
ment tho group stood thus In tho moon
light, nnd then, with one simultaneous
Impulse, everyone burst Into roars and
peals of laughter that echoed frr and
wide tho spell was broken, and even
ns Paul asslted the major to rise, ho
wiped away tears of mirth.
"Uncle," gasped Esther, leaning
ngalnst the trlllls for support, "do you
think you over oucht to mount any
thing thnt hasn't an Intelligence of its

recovering himself with difficulty.
"You made such a sudden start
"You beat us all," said Paul. "If I

The major drew himself up and care
fully brushed one knee.
"Thank you all kindly. Let's go Into
the house and have something. Esther,
I am converted to cycling but not to
sarcasm. Come, my dear, and you, my
boy; I will forgive you both everything,

general health who neglects the health of
the organs that constitute her womanhood.
She may suffer only locally for a time.
Eventually the nerves are ruine'd by the
constant wear and tear of pain. They cease
to impart the necessary nervous activity to
the various organs of the body. A general

A wonderful medicine for weak, nervous
women, who through local troubles are
threatened with a general break-down is
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It acts
directly on the delicate organs that are dis
tinctly feminine. It restores them to vigor
and health. It allays Inflammation and
soothes pain. It gives the tortured nerves
a rest and permits thera to resume their
natural function of directing a healthy ac
tivity of all the organs. It prepares a wo.
man for wifehood and motherhood. It
makes baby's advent easy and almost pain,
less and insures the child's health. It is the
best woman's medicine and more than

feminine organism that it Is the best medicine on
earth for Ultra to use. I cannot praise it too
highly for the good it did me. If any one doubts
