The slow ticking of the old-fashion
ed clock was the only sound that brok*
the stillness in the living roora at the
home of Amos Chester.
Marion, his ouly daughter and
housekeeper, was seated comfortably
In the big armchair, glancing over the
daily papers, and a look of resent- \
ment now and then stole over her usu-1
ally placid face as she glanced at the |
sleeping figure of her father. Tonight j
the paper held little attraction for
her. The pages which she had always
found so interesting and enjoyable
were passed lightly over. The day
had been a rather dull one-the over
hanging clouds of the past few days
were the harbingers of the storm that
had now settled, and the wind, increas
ing in velocity, hud made indoors a
After her father had retired, Marion
settled herself before the open grate,
watching the tiny flames leaping here
and there and slowly and surely con
suming the great pieces of wood which j
vere fed to the fiery monster. "Just j
so our dreams end in ashes-and ash-1
es of regret, most of them," she said :
aloud, as she carefully placed another
piece to be devoured.
How unjust it all was-the boys
had all married and had homes of |
their own ; while she-but she must ;
not bring to light the ashes that had '
slumbered so long; and, brushing away |
the tears that came to her eyes, she j
drew her chair more closely to the
crackling flames and, lowering the,
light, gave herself up In reverie.
The heat from the fire, coupled with
the stillness of the room? made her
drowsy, and she was soon wrapped
In the arms of Morpheus.
The smiling face of Doctor Bruce
peered from the ruddy glow ; his arms
of welcome were stretched toward her,:
and the lips that had uttered denunci
ations were now pleading her forgive
She saw him like a ministering an-?
gel poins: from one cot to another,
giving help and cheer to thc boys who
had so freely given their all.
The slamming of a shutter aroused
her; the fire that had burned so bright
ly was now a heap of ashes, and the
dream, the realization of which was
part of the happy past, was ended.
The shutter Axed, she made prepara-'
tions to retire. Sleep could not be
wooed, and from the darkness imagi
nary figures arose before her. That
same face, now so kind and indulgent,
and then the other, for whose safety
her lips had remained scaled.
The morning had a new dawning
the terrific wind had abated ?ind the
sky was flecked here and there hy
myriads of pink touches, and peeping
from the east was the sun, glorious
Ju its refreshed beauty.
As Marlon gazed on the benin ifni
picture a new hope revived within her.
Cheerily she commenced her house*;

es nf a snug of other days arose from
A violent pull nt the bell startled
her and, rushing tn the door, she found
herself gazing at the face of her
dream. Doctor Bruce. Bereft of
speech, welcome and gladness por-:
frayed themselves on her face, and
Doctor Bruce knew that none had,
usurped the place that had been in
the past so dear to him.
Lending the way to the room where
she had dreamed of this happiness
which had now become a reality, al
soft glow creeping to her cheeks, all;
the past was forgotten in the joy of j
the present as she listened once again
to the voice of by-prone days. He I
told her how he had arrived the nipht
before and ?'ame over the road in a
comrade's car, so anxious was he to
ask her forgiveness of the past. He
spoke of his wanderin?: after the day
he thought her false to him ; how he
had offered his services to his country;
of his work over there; he told her of
meeting her cousin, from whom he
had heard the whole story. How she
had shielded him for his mother's sake
-and had suffered uncomplainingly
all these years.
"Marion, dear. Can you ever for
"When I think what a cad I was
for ever doubting you-" but her
hand was placed gently on his Hps
and with a face radiant with happi
ness she nestled close beside him and
whispered, "Yes. Jack-and we each

THROUGH FRISCO FIRE
Relates Experience With "Master
Medicine," Which Gave Won
One of the features that distin
guishes Tanlac from all other proprie
tary medicines is the large number of
prominent people -everywhere who
are giving it their unqualified en
dorsement. Among the statments re
cently received at the Tanlac office is
one in particular that is sure to a
rouse widespread interest throughout
the country, having been made by
Mrs Martha R. Stone, of 7225 Third
Ave., Northwest, Seattle, Washing,
ton. She is a noted temperance lec
turer who for many years was asso
ciated with the late Frances E. Wil
lard, founder of the W. C. T. U. In
relating her experience with Tanlac,
Mrs. Stone said:
"I think it is the duty of everyone
who has been relieved as I have to do
what they can to help others; there
fore, it gives me pleasure to tell of
the benefits I have derived from the
use of Tanlac.
"I was a great sufferer for many
years with stomach trouble, which be
came so. bad I had to take to my bed,
where I lay for six weeks, entirely
helpless. The least noise would upset
me and I was not allowed to see any
one for fear it would excite me, and I
was told that my entire nervous sys
tem had suffered a total collapse.
You see, I had passed through the
great San Francisco fire, in which I
lost everything I possessed and my
experience was a severe shock to my
already over-wrought nervous system.
When at last I was able to get out of
bed I would have such awful dizzy
spells that everything in my room
seemed to spin around as though I
was in the centre of a whirl-pool. My
stomach was so weak and my appe
tite so poor that I hardly ate a thing,
and what little I forced down soured
and formed gas that pressed up in my
throat and chest and made me hoarse,
so much so that I had difficulty in
speaking. I also suffered much from
pain in the lower part of my body
from the gas. My liver, too, was all
out of order and my kidneys gave me
no end of trouble. -
"When my son-in-law saw that the
medicines I was taking were doing
me no good, he induced me to try
Tanlac, as he said it had done him so
much good he believed it would help
me, too. To oblige him I got a bottle,
and the first few doses convinced me
that it was just what 1 needed, and
my first bottle put me right on my
feet. I am now cn my second bottle
and am in splendid shape, for my
nerves are practically in a normal
state for the first time in several
years, which I consider a remarkable
thing. 1 have a fine appetite and can
eat most anything I want without suf
fering any unpleasantness afterward.
Tanlac is fast helping me to over
come my troubles, and I feel that I
am getting on just fine ever since I
began taking it."

SELLING FUEL WOOD
BY WEIGHT IS URGED
Heating Value Depends Upon
Weight and Not Upon Bulk.
By Turning to Wood Fuel Supply
? Would Be Conserved and Transpon*
Would Be Improved.
(Prepared by -the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Wood for fuel should be sold by
weight Instead of by cord measure,
for the heating value depends not upon
the bulk of the wood but upon its
weight. A pound of dry wood of one
species has about as much heating
value ns a pound of any other spe
cies, but two cords may vary 100 pei
cent in their value for heating.
It is the custom to sell hard woods
and soft woods at slightly different
prices becajise of differences in heat
ing values. This is only a superficial
classification, however, as two species
of hard woods may have heating
values widely different. Where hard

and Feed Bills.
woods and soft woods are mixed to
gether without regard to the propor
tion of each the values may be so dif
ferent, that one man may. for the same
money, buy twice as much heating
j value as another. The shape and size
I of the sticks may also cause great
I variation in the actual amount of
! wood substancie, and therefore of fuel.
If weight were the mensure, Uni spe
! cies, shape and size of sticks would
make little difference, provided the
wood were thoroughly seasonei. It
would be necessary, however, to fix
certain standards as to time of sea
soning of wood.
There is special opportunity for
j greater use of wood for fuel in New
i England, New York, New Jersey. Fenn
j sylvania. Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa,
Missouri, and the lake states, where
! there is a rural population of about
! 20.000.000, which is estimated to use
j annually IS.000,000 tons of coal. A
; considerable proportion of these fuel
; lifters will find wood available close
; enough to tiieir own neighborhood to
' make long freight hauls unnecessary.
I By turning to wood1 they will not only
. conserve the fuel supply and relieve
j transportation, but are likely to con
j tribute to the prosperity of their own
j community. For one thing, the oppor
I tunity to sell wood fuel would tend
to encourage the Improvement of farm
I woodlands by proper thinnings.
An Increased market for woori fuel
should open up good opportunities for
operators of thrasher and sllo-cuttin
outlits or others who have gasoline or
kerosene engines to do custom sawing
during the winter.
TO COMBAT ONION DISEASES
Pennsylvania Growers Preparing to
Control Ailments as Result of
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Onion growers In many sections of
Pennsylvania are preparing to com
bat onion diseases this year as a re
sult of onion-smut control demonstra
tions held In the state last season.
The treatment consisted in the appli
cation by means of a drip attachment
on the seeder, of a formalin solution
(one pint to sixteen gallons) to the
seeds after they aro dropped in the
furrow and before they are covered.
On a plot treated for onion smut the
yield was at the rate of GS0 bushels
an acre, and on the untreated it was
only 3G0 bushels. Tho increase as
a result of treatment wns 06 per cont
and the cost was only $2.40 an acre
In the other demonstration mentioned
in the report tho yield on the treated
plot was at the rate of 42n bushels
an acre, and on the untreated only
180 bushels, the increase being 18:3
per cent, and the cost an acre $3.40.
