CHAPTER I. I!
Harry Swlfton hummed a song to
aimself and threw a little more speed
Into his roadster.
He had every reason to be happy. :
Long regarded as a settled bachelor,
though young enough to be the sort
ot chap all the girls were setting their
:aps for, he felt that this was to be
the really great day of his life. Lucy
Medders and her father were coming
to visit him; his sister Carolyn was
coming home from boarding school
especially to play the hostess, the
home had been made spick and span
'or the occasion, the sun was shining,
the little birds were singing in the
trees of the park, his roadster was
running smoothly and-Well, he hadn't

In memory, he could see again that
day of the summer before when in the

home-but he thought he was in
Above him bent a Quaker damsel,
demurely beautiful and distractingly
calm. She was bathing his brow with
a cloth wrung out of cold water to
which some camphor had been added.
"Do thee feel better?" she asked, in
the softest of tones.
"It depends," he managed to say.
"If you're going to stop this because
I'm better, I'm going to have a re

"Has the young man recovered.

\"Yes, father," she said. Harry sat
up.^with an effort.

My Hatl My Beaut
went into the ditch right in front of
With the word "lucky" he looked
meaningly at Lucy, but that self-pos
sessed maiden did not seem to catch
bis double meaning.
The result of the accident is not
hard to guess. Harry found himself
so bumped and bruised that lt took a
fortnight for him to be v?ell enough to
return to his home. And in that fort
night he and Lucy became so well ac
quainted that it then became neces
sary for him to run up to see her
a mere matter of a hundred miles
once every week. And now he had
induced her father to bring her to visit
him and his sister.
He reviewed in his mind the events
of the days since the accident Pleas
ant thoughts, those, for a young man.
They take his mind off the immediate
Automatically he whirled around
another corner-then began doing
things with the brake, but too late.
Twenty yards before him approached
another auto. In lt sat a couple ob
livious to their danger. There was a
smash and a crash, a surlek and a
yell. And then the three people picked
The man in the other auto leaped
to his feet first and shook his fists
at Harry. The lady gathered her hair
into a coil again and exclaimed:
"My hat! My beautiful hat!"
Harry followed the direction of her
glance, and saw the object of her dis
may. A handsome hat of yellow
straw, adorned with large red flowers,
was hopelessly entangled in the steer
ing gear of his machine.
He extricated it-or what he could
of it-?nd offered it to her. But with
a tearful exclamation of i'jspair she
"Scoundrel!" shouted her friend.
"Vy do you go running around kill
ing peeples, und ruining deir hats?"
"My dear count!" cried the lady.
"Not so loud!"
But the count was not to be calmed.
In spite of Harry's efforts to explain
matters, he continued his staccato ex
pressions of wrath and vengeance, un
til, giving up the idea of straightening
matters out, Harry popped into his
own machine, skilfully ran past the
other auto, and resumed his home
ward -Ide. In a moment the count
and the lady were in their seit again,
the count wheeled his machine about,
and the pursuit began. By some deft
turnings and twistings Harry man
aged to evade them and at las.
He dashed into the house, eager to
chance his clothes and be ready to
go to the station to meet Mr. Medders
and Lucy. "Pigeon" Williams met
him. Pigeon, as be was affectionately
called, was a young man who tried
his best to be a chum of Harry-fer
the reason that he was unusually a;
tracted by Harry's sister Carolyn. it
was natural that Pigeon should be at
Bwi?ton's that morning. He wanted
to help Harry have things ready to
entertain Lucy and her father, and
besides he thought it would cheer
Carolyn up to see one of her old
friends on her own arrival.
"Is Carolyn here?" Harry asked, as
be came In.
"Sure/' replied Pigeon. "She got
here half an hour ago-mad as the
dickens because you didn't meet her
at the train. Why didn't you? If I'd
known you-weren't going to, of course
I could have gone."
"I meant to," Harry replied. "But
I had a bit of a smash-sp in the park."
"Nothing that amounted to much.
Head-on bump into one of .these run
about things-run about a day and
then blow up. German dignitary in
it, with a dashing brunette. No won
der he couldn't see me coming. He
had to look at her."
"Didn't hurt them?"
"No. Just knocked the breath out
of all of us. And her hat fell off,
and my machine chewed lt up. Look."
Harry dug into his pocket and pro
duced the brim of the lady's hat, with
a trailing string of red popples. Pi
"Keep It for a souvenir?" te asked.
"Don't know. The German fellow
got mad,, antfT came away ic such a
hurry I forgot-what I was doing.

"He got mad: No wonder."
"I think.he's real peeved. When I
made my>get-away he got his old cook
stove into action and tried to? follow
me. But I escaped."
Harry went into his room and
Pigeon sat down.
"How's Carolyn looking?" Harry
called to him.
"Fine and dandy. Say, Harry,"
Pigeon went on, maliciously, "the fel
lows have lt in for you."
"In for me! Why?" asked Harry, In
muffled tones, tugging at a collar but

"That so?" Harry said, coming out
"Well, let 'em say what they please.

flowers, and natural girls. Pigeon, I'm

"You'd Detter get some one to ex

flashed at him as she left the room.
"Lucy and her father may be shocked
at some of the things here."
"I'd like to know what there is in

chuckled. "But maybe that picture of

"Why, those are works of art."
"Here's General Blazes to see you.

"Come right in, general!" Harry
said. General Blazes, pompous, irasci
ble and dignified, was Harry's attor
ney In several matters having to do
with the estate left him by his fa

and as impressively as though he
were approaching the bench of the
United States Supreme court and
"Good morning, boy. Here"-taking
a packet from his inside pocket
"here are the deeds, all duly signed
and mealed. I believe you will need
no further advice from me."
"Thank you, general," Harry said,
taking the documents. "That's mighty
good of you. I appreciate your kind
ness in bringing them In yourself."
v"No trouble at all, I assure you. I
was passing on my way to my offices."

"After that," he continued, "she wan

"I-I beg your pardon, humbly!'
exclaimed the newcomer, In a thin

"Br-r-r-r!" grumbled the general

The newcomer glided In. His long

"About ten yean aso my eyesight beean to
fail to such an extent that it became necessary
for me to consult a specialist My trouble in
creased until I found it necessary to consult ser
eral others. My case was diagnosed as Atrophy of
thc Optic Nerve, caused by impoverished blood
supply. The progresa of my trouble was slow
but steady, with never any relief, until finally
my physician advised me that nothing further
could be done. About this time, about fwo years
aso, I could not see to read, and my rance of
vision was so short that!could not see anything
at a greater distance than fifty or seventy-five
feet I often found it difficult to recognize ac
?uaintances when I met them, distinguishing
lem moraby their voices than their features.
In May, 1909, a friend advised me that 'if the
physician's diagnosis was correct MILAM will
cure you, because it will purify and enrich the
blood, increase the flow, and build up the sys
tem: but it will take a long time ana Ute im
provement will be slow.'
'1 did not believe one word of this, and con
sented to take MILAM because I did not think lt
could hurt me, and there might be a bare possi
bility that it might help me. After six weeks'
use I began to notice a slight improvement in
my sight which has been slow but steady and
with no setback. Now I can read newspapers
with ordinary classes, can distinguish large ob
jects two miles away, and have no difficulty
now, as far as my sight is concerned, in attend
ing to my duties as the executive officer of a
"I am still careful not to tax my eyes unrea
sonably, becauv. I realise that I am not cored;
but hone, and am mora and more encouraged as
time passes, to believe that the continued use of
' ULAM will cure me.
"I think it proper to state that my general
hcaifc and strength have also improved in the
same ratio as my eyesight and I attribute this to
the use of Milora.
