School days are danger days for American gills.
Often physical collapse follows, and it takes years to recover tho
lost vitality. Sometimes it is never recovered.
Perhaps they are not ' over-careful about keeping their feet dry;
through carelessness in this respect the monthly sickness is usuaiiy
rendered very severe.
Then begin ailments -which should be removed at once, or they Trill
produce constant suffering. Headache, faintness, slight vertigo, pains
in. the back and loins, irregularity, loss of sleep and appetite, a tendency
to avoid the society of others, are symptoms all indicating that woman's
arch-enemy is at hand.

young girl over this critical period. With it they have gone through
their trials with courage and safety. With its proper use the young

"DEAR MRS. PIXKIIAM:-I wish to thank you for the help and ben
efit I have received through the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound and Liver Pills. When I was about seventeen
years old I suddenly seemed to lose my Usual good
health and vitality. Father said I studied too
hard, but the doctor thought different and
prescribed tonics, which I took by the
quart without relief. Reading one day in
the paper ot J: :-?. Pinkham's great cures,
and iinding the symptoms described an
swered mine, I decided I would give Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a
trial. I did not say a word to the doctor;
? bought it nryself, and took it according
to directions regularly for two months,
and I found that I gradually improved,
and that all pains left me, and I was my
old self once more. - LTLLIE E. SINCLAIR,

THE QUIET MAN
I lingered o'er a checker game a night or
The one who played against me seemed
to have no ghost of show; '
[ had a bunch of lusty kings that strutted
ind bullied my opponent's men, who
dared not venture out.
Way over in a corner shrunk a timid lit
TTho staid right in his station ever since
the game began.
Ie watched my crowned heads marching
by with banner and with song,
Lnd seemed to be discouraged over stand
ing still so long.
Jut pretty soon an opening occurred two
ind not another moment did that little
?e bounded o'er the board and took
three kings in one fell swoop,
rhen landed in my king-row with a wild,
r-y y HE Ca rews had quarrelled.
There was no doubt about it.
A prolonged fit of "sulks" In
dulled lu by Mrs. Carew be
cause her husband had forgotten a cer
tain commission she had charged bim
with had culminated in verbal warfare
following the removal ol' the cloth af
ter dinner, and this was followed
shortly after by the removal of the
master of the house. The act had boon
prefaced by a statement on Harry's
part that if she was going to sulk all
the evening be would goout and amuse
himself, and then, hardly giving Millie
time to get iu a last word Mr. Carew
had dashed into the hall, snatched bat
and stick and quitted Laburnum Villa,
closing the front door behind him with
a vigor that shook thc whole house.
When perfectly convinced that she
lind driven him off the premises. Millie
repented with the thoroughness that
marked all her actions; she ran into
the hall and opened the front door, in
thc vague hope that Harry was within
calling distance, but there was nothing
but darkness to be seen, aud she reluc
tantly closed lt again.
And Harry had gone out without his
great coat-he would catch cold, bo
very ill, perhaps die, and she would be
responsible; the tears came into ber
eyes at this train of thought, and she
felt herself the wickedest woman in
As she stood remorsefully gazing at
the garment Harry ought to have been
wearing she saw it lacked the top but
ton, and remembered during dinner
Harry had said something about a but
ton coming off his great coat. Millie
carried the coat into the dining room
and fetched her work basket. The but
ton should be put on at once. She laid
the coat ou a table for greater conve
nience, and as she did so a letter slid
out of the Inside breast pocket.
Millie picked it up. "Henry Carew7,
Esq., Acanthus Club, Earl street, W.
C., was the inscription, in a feminine
hand, and the postmark was ou that
day, and Harry's excuse for forgetting
bis commission had been pressure of
work at the office; yet he had found
time to visit the club. Who was his
"He certainly ought to tell me; lt
?oesn't look like a business letter," said
Millie to herself, and then somehow
the letter came out of the envelope.
She was on?y looking for the signature,
but th.e beading first caught ber eye,
and lt was, "My darling Harry." Af
ter that it ls needless to say she read
the letter. The address was 0, Queen
inne Villas, Wellington Road, Kensel
"My darling Harry - Your bracelet
?anie by this morning's post; it's just
lovely. But you mustu't be so ex tra v
jant. Be sure and come this evening
lo be thanked and scolded by your lov
ng sweetheart. Doris Forbes."
Milly turned very white and held her
breath. What did it mean? She looked
again nt thc address, at the envelope,
examined thc postmarks. There could
be no mistake; the letter was genuine,
addressed to Harry, received and road
by Harry - Harry, who had married
her a little over a month ago.
Presently she rose to her feet, shak
ing with emotion. That was where he
bad gone, to see this Doris Forbes;
well, she would follow him, expose
him to the Innocent girl to whom he
was obviously passing as a single man.
Sternly repressing a longing to cry,
Millie went upstairs and put on her hat
and cloak; she would not let herself
think of the future, but kept firmly be
fore ber the thought of exposing Harry
to the girl he was deceiving. With the
evidence of his double dealing in lier
pocket she came downstairs, and leav
ing the great cont still lying ou the
table, lacking Its top button, she
opened the front door and slipped
quietly out of the house.
The Carews lived in Kilburn, so it
was not far to Kensel Rise, and a cab
speedily deposited Millie at the gate of
No. 0; in response to ber rap a. trim
maid opened the door.
"Is Mr. Carew here?" asked the wife,
trying to speak in an ordinary tone.
"Ko, ma'am, he's not." The servant
turned and addressed, a young lady
who was descending the stairs: "A
ludy, Miss Doris, asking for Mr. Ca
rew; are you expecting him this even
T,be girl came forward and glanced,
curiously nt the visitor. Millie noted
she was slim and pretty, with fair hair
and delicate features. "Mr. Carew may
come here this evening," said Miss
Forbes, courteously; "did you want to
"You will do," muttered Mrs. Carew
hoarsely, and without asking permis
sion stepped into the hall. The servant
had retired, and the two women faced
each other under the ornamental gas
"I must have a few words with you,"
Miss Forbes, without answering, led
tho way into an empty sitting room,
then coldly addressed the visitor.
"What have you to say to me?"
"Are you engaged to Mr. Carew?"
burst out Millie.
The girl flushed hotly. "Yes, but
who are you, and why do you ask?"
"Because I have every right to ask.
Because he is deceiving you. Because
he is my husband."
"Your husband!" Doris stared at
the strange young lady who made this
astounding statement. "Oh, no! you
must be mistaken."
Millie thrust the letter before the
other's eyes. "You know your own
letter, don't you? Well, I found it half
an hour ago in my husband's great
"There must be some mistake. Have
you got the envelope?"
"Henry Carew, of the Acanthus Club,
ls my husband; ho married me a little
over a month ago," replied Millie, pro
ducing the envelope.
"I can't'believe it," said Doris, slow
IN THE CORNER.
You've known these quiet fellows that
just sat around and thought
And never made a" noise while the others
raged and fought;
The whole community had come to think
of them as dead,
Or else go very near it that their hope of
fame had fled.
The chaps with recognition for their por
tion pose and strut,
And seem to overlook the man who keeps
his talker shut.
But some day, when 'most every one ia
looking t'other way,
This quiet fellow 6ees a chance to break
into the play.
He reaches out and grabs things that the
others had ignored;
He puts into the life-game all the energy
Through all the years of silence. So
you'd better not forget
The still man in the corner, for he'll reach
thc king-row yet!
-S. W. Gillilan, in Los Angeles Herald.
[ ly, bat sho had grown very pale; "it
seems so impossible-and yet-"
A knock at the front door interrupted
ber. "That will bc he," she cried eag
erly; "now we can have this cleared."
She opened the door. "Jane, if that's
Mr. Carew, show him In here."
Very faintly through thc closed door
the two women heard thc footsteps of
some ono in the hall. Mrs. Carew
stood bj- th? corner of the table mo
tionless, but Doris, in a fever of anx
iety, moved restlessly to and fro. Thc
moments seemed to drag, thc delny to
be endless, but really only a couple of
minutes bad passed before the door
opened again, and the maid's voice an
nounced "Mr. Carew."
A young man strode in. "Doris!" he
cried, as he caine toward Miss Forbes
with outstretched hand and a smile on
his face, but she just touched the ex
tended lingers and indicated -Millie.
"Do you know this lady V she asked.
The young man announced as Mr.
and Mrs. Carew looked at one another
across the table, "I have not, to my
kuowledge, that pleasure," he said po
litely, and then stared with amaze
ment at the relief on his betrothed's
face and the lx?wilderment on that of
the strange la dj'.
"I knew ii!" cried Doris with heart
felt relief. "She said-she must be
crazy-that you were her husband."
"I her husband!"
"Is this your Henry Carew?" Millie
finally found voice to say to Doris.
Yes, of course it is! Now will you
kindly explain what you mean by say
ing he married you a month ago?"
"I never saw this gentleman before
in my life. I said I was married to
Henry Carew; in my husband's pocket
this evening I found tho letter I
showed you just now." /
In fact, except being about the same
height, there was not the smallest re
semblance between the visitor and Mil
"Ah, the letter!" cried Doris; "that's
what so bewildered me." She turned
to her Harry. "Where is the letter I
wrote you by thc first post this morn
ing, addressed to your club, which you
ought to have received?"
"I did receive It; at 2 o'clock to-day,
when I wont to the Acanthus for
luncheon. "I have lt now,"-he dived
into his breast pocket of his great coat
-'why, no! it's gone."-"f
"How did it get into my husband's
coat?" demanded Millie; "that's where
I found it."
Henry Carew the second took the let
ter and envelope Mrs. Carew produced
and gazed -wonderingly at them.
"This is positively uncanny!" he stated.
"Has the coat been out of your pos
session ?" asked Doris, as he seemed
unable to give any explanation.
"Let rae think. I read the letter in
the vestibule and put it in the breast
pocket of my overcoat. I hung the coat
on a peg in thc luncheon room while I
lunched. Then I put it on and went
out. No, I didn't. I had half an hour
to spare, and had a game of billiards
find gave the coat to a waiter, and he
brought it to me when I finished, and
I put it on and went out. Ah! Is your
husband a Henry Carew?" inquired
the young man of Milli?.
"Of course," said Mrs. Carew, impa
tiently, "or all this trouble wouldn't
"Then I believe I know who youl
husband is," was the^riuinphat reply.
Millie, who in her bewilderment, was
beginning to wonder whether the ex
istence of her Harry was not imagina
tion on her part, gave him all her at
tention, and Doris began to think bel
supposition that her visitor was crazy
might lie incorrect.
"He's Paul Carew, the junior part
ner of Stephens & Co., the wool brok
ers?" asked the j'.ouug man.
"Yes, yes," cried Mrs. Carew, eag
erly, and in her excitement ungram
matically added, like the monks when
they spotted the thieving jackdaw,
"But still," continued Miss Forbes's
Harry, speaking more to himself than
to his eager audience, "that doesn't ex
plain how he got-why, I don't believe
this Is my coat!"
Ho was feeling in the pockets of his
overcoat with a puzzled expression
and looking at a season ticket pass
drawn from thc ticket pocket.
"That's Harry's ticket! You've go?
on his coat," cried Millie, a ray of llghi
illuminating the puzzle, "and he's gol
yours-but they're exactly alike."
"Of course they are," said Harry Ca
rew; "Harry and I patronize the sani(
tailor. He must have been at the clut
to-day, though I. didn't see him, and
the waiter mixed up our coats."
"You know my husband?"
"I should think I do. Why, we'r<
first cousins, and. have been greal
chums till a year ago, when we quar
reled over some trifling matter, and
haven't spoken since. I heard he re
cently married. Hasn't he never told

"Well, Harry," said Doris, "you'v<
never told me you had a cousin of tb?.
same name as yourself."
"Haven't I? That's just how we'vt j
drifted apart. I must make it up with '
Harry; I'm Harry Solus, he's Hcnrj 1

And both the matron and the male j

BERSEEM FOR FARMERS.
A New Word Here, and the New Thin
lt Denotes Comes From Egypt.
Berseem is to be brought to the Uni
ted States to help out in the National
Irrigation scheme. No doubt not one
reader in a thousand will know wheth
er berseem is something from the ln
Bide of a pyramid or an element of
beeswax. The United States Govern
ment has just issued a booklet about
lt written by David G. Fairchild, who
ls described in the big Blue Book as
"Permanent Agricultural Explorer, Di
vision of Seed and Plant Introduction,
Bureau of Plant Industry, Department
of Agriculture." Surely berseem
must be very important or this dis
tinguished explorer would not have
taken the time to write a book about
lt and illustrate it with fine photogra
When land has had no rain for cen
turies a saity deposit gathers near
the surface. The scientist knows ex
actly why this is so, but lt is hardly
worth while to explain. When these
arid lands are covered with water the
first result is the formation of a salty
crust. This plays havoc with the in
tentions of the agriculturist. He tries
to get rid of this salty deposit by deep
tilling, but this will not always work.
When the department determined that
this salty crust was one of tho im
portant handicaps of the irrigation
schemes, it undertook to find a plant
which would neutralize these salty de
posits. This was the quest of David
G. Fairchild, and he reports that he
found in berseem, the fodder and soil
ing plant or Egypt. Trifolium Alexa- |
drinum. just the thing for a rotating
crop for irrigated land.
Not only will berseem be useful in
eating the salts which hamper the ir
rigation agriculturist, but it furnishes
the manure to enrich the soil. Amer
ica here gets another important lesson
from the Egyptian. The fellahin
(farm laborer) have for centuries used
the manure of the stables for fuel".
Girls are employed to mix it with earth
and# the dried cakes are burned. In
fact, it is the principal fuel. The soil,
deprived of its natural enrichment,
would deteriorate were it not for tho
wonderful properties of the fodder
crop. The keenest modern agricul
turists of thc Nile Valley report that
without this wonderful plant the soil
would soon become so weak, despite
the deposit of silt from the overflow
ing waters, that it would become
worthless. The silt is almost devoid
nf the necessary nitrogenous matter.
The berseem also keeps down the
weeds. The report of Mr. Fairchild
"Nothing among thc varied agricul
tural sights which interest the tourist
In Egypt is so interesting as the cul
ture, harvest and marketing of this
green fodder crop. Every coachman
has a bunch of berseem or a bag of it
under his feet, with which he feeds
his boise at the cabstand. Every
drayman hos on top of his load a bag
of it for his horses or bullocks, and
the donkey boys carry a bag of lt for
their much-abused jeasts. In the
early morning the avenues leading to
Cairo are lined with long files of cam
els and donkeys bearing the green for
age. About its culture all other agri
cultural crops are arranged."
The plant resembles clover and the
stems are very succulent, in every way
more delicate than clover or alfalfa,
and it ls eaten not only by domestic
?nimalsTbut by the farm laborer.-CHT"
