could figure it out, we had either beat

had so cleverly ambushed my scouting
party, or we hadn't. If the first were
true, I was probably safe in a hospital,
and if the second, I was a prisoner,
with a very unpleasant future before

" 'Oh, you're all right now, old chap,'

skull grinned more affably than ever
upon me. 'You got a little swipe
across the eyes from some murderous

" 'Exactly,' 1 muttered, scanning his

voice placidly. 'You've been seeing all

about the finest anatomical museum

had a surfeit of bones, but I kuew

See here, you've had three ribs on tho

" 'Yes, football, but how the deuce

throwing himself disgustedly into a
chair at last, 'I must believe you; it's
beyond any iran's comprehension, but
I must believe you. It's unnatural and
unscientific and absolutely idiotic, but
the only guess I can make at an expla

altered the retina or optic nerve so
that they, or one of them, is sensitive

you've been testing and tinkering
around learning to believe what was

getting used to things as they are, and

they're quite as individual as your

For instance, there's a dainty little

MUSIC HYPNOTIZES HIM.
Old TVnltor Props Everytlilnc; When Or

In a certain fashionable restaurant
the other night thc orchestra struck up
a certain popular march, and Instantly
an aged colored walter nt tho other
end of thc room "set down a tray of
food that he bad been about to serve.
"Ob, bully!" he murmured, and bc
walked down to thc little group of mu

'leader. There was a look of. delight In1
lils eyes. Ile'stood listening lu absorp

Meanwhile the party that he was
neglecting were criming this way and
that, looking for him.
"Where can thc old fellow be?" they
said. "There, on his tray, is our soup,
getting cold; but he has disappeared."
He must be ill."

over, and the aged serving man was
patting the leader on the back, chuck

When lie was through lie returned to his
patrons, and with au apology for his
delay, served the soup.
The bend waiter a moment later
stopped at the table. "I hope," he said,
"that you will pardon that old man.
He is a good walter, a faithful old soul,
but he ls a slave to that ono piece ot
music. Thc orchestra cannot strike it
up but he drops everything, forgets
ererytdlng, and gets right In among
the music. There he stands until the
piece is over, when, with a sigh, he
comes to, thanks and congratulates the
leader and resumes lils work. No other
music affects him In the least. He
never seems to notice at other times

march seems to hypnotize him, and he

Often at Intervals, curing that day,
the dying boy asked after his dog.
Along in thc afternon lie raised bk
head, and in his delirium called tho
dog, and instantly tho pointer waa at
the window. For hours he had been
walking, unobserved by the anxious
watchers inside, up and down thc nar
row veranda that ran along tho side
of the boy's bedroom window. At thc
sound of his master's voice ho stood
up and beat the window with his front
feet. At thc sight of him the boy
seemed to forget his suffering, and,
smiling, begged them to let the dog In.
Baltyne-big, brave Baltyne, with'
tears washing down Iiis wind-browned
face-looked at the door and the doctor
nodded. Then Baltyne opened thc door
that led to thc. little veranda and the
dog glided in. His whole frame quiv
ered as he entered thc room, and as ho
caught sight of tho boy be uttered a
little teetering whine that grew until
ho reached the bed. As the boy wound
his arms around the dog's neck the
whine swelled into a cry-not a bark
nor a growl, nor yet a melancholy howl
that a dog Avili do away in thc dark

came from thc other side of the bod

Almost immediately the boy became
calm and sank into a sort of stupor
that was like sleep. When be had

dog tenderly and put him outside thc
room. At tho door the dog turned hi<

J. F. Wainwright, Oi the firm of
Bones & Wainwright, painters and con
tractors, Pulaski, Yu., says: "Four or
five times a year for the past few yours
I have suffered with severe attacks
of pain lu my back, caused from kidney
trouble. During these spells I was in
such misery from the constant pain
and aching that lt was almost im
possible for me to stoop or straighten,
and lt really seemed ns If the whole
small of my back had given away.
At times I also had dlfllculty with
the kidney secretions, which were dis
colored, irregular and scalding, and I
was also greatly distressed wita head
aches and dizziness. I used a number
of recommended remedies, but 1 neve;
found anything so successsful as
Doan's Kidney Fills. When I heard of
them I had an attack aud procured a
box of them, lu a few days the pain
aud lameness disappeared, the trouble
with the kidney secretions was cor
rected and my system was improved
generally. I have every confidence lu
Doan's Kidney rills."

"I am one of the talesmen you

the man said, as an introduction, "and
I have been a little curious about you
