" Dear Mrs. Pixkhaji I have many,
many thanks to give you for what your
Vegetable Compound has done for me.
After first confinement I was sick for
nine years with prolapsus of the womb,
had pain in left side, in small of back,
a great deal of headache, palpitation
of heart and leucorrhoea. I felt so
weak and tired that I could not do my
work. I became pregnant again and
took your Compound all through, and
now have a sweet baby girl. I never
before had such an easy time during
labor, and I feel it was due to Lydia
E. Pinkham'3 Vegetable Compound. I
am now able to do my work and feel
better than I have for years. I cannot
thank you enough." Mas. Ed. En

Matthew Elder, editor of The Inner
Circle, hail gone out for half an hour to
synchronize his watch, and his assistant,
J. Graham Champnies, reigned tempo
rarily iu his stead.
A clerk had just laid on Chauipuies'
desk the form which a visitor had filled
"Name Mis Cynthia Page. To See
The Editor. Business Private. Date
"Well, I'll see her," said Champnies.
He hail freen the name of Cynthia Page
in good magazines appended to curious
and interesting stories.
He was not ill pleased when the clerk
showed her in to find that she bad
youth and beauty on pale and mystical
lines. J. Graham Champnies found him
self hoping that Matthew -Elder, after
synchronizing his watch, would find it
necessary to go and sec a man about a
dog or, at any rate, would delay his re
turn. "I am speaking to the editor?" said
Miss I'age. a little doubtfully.
"The actual editor, Mr. Elder, is not iu
at present, but I have full power to act
"I see." She was still in doubt.
"Pray be assured of it. I can make
contracts with you, accept stories from
you, sign checks for you, so if you have
anything to propose"
"Oh, it's not that! In fact, 1 came in
consequence of a proposition which he
had already made to me."
"Well, I shall be very glad to carry on
anything that he has begun. As a rule
he mentions these things to me. but this
time I am in the dark."
She smiled mysteriously. "But von
can't be sine that you would wish to
carry on what he has begun."
"As Mr. Elder is the supreme authority
here, I should have no choice. But even
if I had, what you suggest is extremely
''Why unlikely? No two men can have
minds exactly alike. It's such a funny
arrangement you have here."
"It works well enough in practice. We
both know the character of our paper
and what our public wants. I say that
it is unlikely that I should be unwilling
to carry on whatever Mr. Elder has be
gun, for this reason and also because I
know and admire your work."
"Oh, do you think it's any good?"
"Of course I do."
"Speaking frankly, it's full enough of
faults; some of it seems to have run
away with you and got all over the place.
But it's horribly interesting all the same.
You see, it's original."
"Oh, yes," she assented. "I am origi
nal. If I were not, I shouldn't be here."
"That sounds cryptic," he said. "Pos
sibly I shall understand it when I know
tho nature of Mr. Elder's proposal. He
wants some stories from you?"
"Theu what is it?"
"Do yon know that I am afraid I
can't tell you."
"Very well, then, there's nothing more
to be said. Mr. Elder is out at present.
You'd better call again. I suppose you
think it would make some difference
whether Mr. Elder went on with this
business or I did?"
"I'm sure it would the greatest dif
"You think I shouldn't do as well?"
"Xot as well. You'd do better, infinite
ly better. Oh, I must go." She blushed,
arose, goodbyed and faded out of the of
fice. Ten minutes Inter Mr. Matthew Elder,
middle aged, bald and cheerful, saunter
ed into the room with his bands in his'
"Well, Bill! Everything all right?"
"No," said Champnies shortly, still irri
tated by his interview with Cynthia
Page. "Quart into a pint pot. Plugged
up with nds, and Uowse has just sent up"
that he'll want another half page. We
shall have to leave over everything that'll
wait and some things that won't."
"Ah, you don't keep a tight enough
hand on Rowse."
"Step in and tackle him yourself.
Here, this woman called to see you
wouldn't tell me her business."
Matthew Elder took the paper slip and
sank down in a chair.
"Bill, this is rather bad. I ought to
have been in. What with my unfor
tunate enthusiasms and my wretched
memory, I shall get myself into trouble.
I met this girl two or three times a
year ago; never gave her another
thought till I came on a story by her
that was perfectly magnificent oh, hor
ribly good! probably the best story that
has been written this century. I dashed
off a letter to her at once and so worked
myself up about it that I said, to show
my sinceiity, that if she liked I'd marry
her, and she could call at the office this
morning with her answer. She'd have
refnsed me, of course, as they all do, and
perhaps I'm better single; but, none the
less, it would have been more civil not to
have forgotten the appointment."
"Really," said Champnies, 'you must
be a little mad."
"Undoubtedly," answered Elder cheer
fully. "It's the price one pays for being
so excessively intelligent."
Champnies stared blankly at the desk,
trying to recall the exact words of his
conversation with Cynthia Page.
"Look here, Bill," said Elder, "write
and say you want to see her about a
story, then when she comes do the ex
plaining for me. Say I was called away
by telegram. Say it was from motives
of delicacy. Say anything."
The following is from a subsequent is
sue' of "The Tea Cup; a Journal Con
ducted by Ladies For Ladies:"
"One of the most brilliant of our lady
writers, aiiss CJynthia Page, is, it is

"How did she show It, mo boy?"
"Well, theah.s a pier down there with
a bathing float attached to tho nd of
It. The float, ye knaw, lay about sis
feet below the end of- the pier, quite a
drop, ye knaw. One night I was talk
ing to the girl on the vcrnnda, nnd I
suggested that tho pier offered nn op
portunity for a good bicycle ride If It
weren't for the danger of dropplm: off
the end and taking a tumble of six
feet to the float below. The girl look
ed at me and said that even if one did
strike the float it wouldn't mattah.
'Why, I'll ride down heali and out on
the raft,' she said. 'You daren't,' I re
plied. She turned up her nose and
asked me what I'd bet. I bet her
twenty-five dollahs and a box of. flow
ers. She told me to be out theah in
the morning and I'd see her do it I
was theah bright and eahly. And
blow my eyes, old man. she did do It!"
"Why. wasn't she hurt, me lo.v?"
"Not a bit. Tho tide had raised tho
float to a level with the pier., and at
the end she just rolled out upon It on
her wheel. Deuced clevah. wasn't it?"

OLD SOL'S RIDE IN 1849.
Flowery Wenther Predictions of the
JourmiliHt of Long Ago.
In these days of practical newspa
per writing. In which bald facts are
expressed in the plainest and tersest
form, the flowery language Indulged
in by some of the "journalists" half a
century ago sounds peculiar. The
following poetic convulsion was copied
by one .of the local papers from tho
New York Tribune in 1849 as worthy
of a high place in the newspaper lit
erature of the day:
"On Saturday evening at 17 minutes
past 11 o'clock the sun rode calmly
and mildly over tne autumnal equinox
and cast his golden anchor on the win
try coast of autumn. But as yet the
vast ocean of air through which he
sails Is glowing and transparent with
the memory of the long summer days
that have passed over it, darting their
rich beams to its very depths. Even
as we write, however, the remem
brance fades, like the sky's blanching
souvenirs of sunset, and in the dis
tance the cold ghosts of winter glare
and wave their frozen wings, which

TJnclehooil is about the hardest hood
man has to wear.nnd, as I have observ
ed uncles and their habits, they either
ipoll or repel the small chaps and cliap
pesses who happen to bo made their
nephews and nieces by an accident of
birth. Uncles are either intensely
genial or Intensely Irritable, and as tar
as I am concerned It is my belief that
our colleges should Include in their car
rlculutn n chair of "unclelsm."
Unclehood is a relationship that man
has to accept. It Is thrust upon him.
He can't help himself. To be a father
or a mother is a matter of volition. But
even In a free country like o;ir own. If
a man has a brother or n sister, ho Is
liable to find himself an uncle at any
time whether he wishes to be one or
not. Then when It happens he's got to
reason out a course of procedure with
out any basis In previous experience.

tentedly kicking her small feet against
a pasteboard bonnet box.
"That's the second kid and contin

tided tho, keeper of the morgue to me
as the recovered child, lustily scream
ing in the fervent embrace of her tear
ful parent, was carried away. "No, it's
nothing unusual. It's almost a daily
occurrence. In the excitement of bar
gain rushes persons very frequently
lose sight of their children for a few
moments, and the natural tendency of
the children is to stray away and take
in the strange sights of the store on
their own hook. Of course they might
wander out of the establishment, and
to prevent this the floor walkers in
variably send to me every child they
find unaccompanied by a guardian.

ble article, animate or inanimate,
which does not find its way to the
morgue," continued the keeper reflect

up by our nerviest floor walker, and an
ugly customer he was, indeed the
dog, not the floor walker. Wo triced
him up by a short chain and tried to
make him lie down pending the ar
rival of his owner. But he wouldn't.
Instead he took a stand, braced him

his chain and started in to clean out

owner, who had left the cage down In

bundles and even diamond rings are
parts of my stock in trade here. I'd

of the COLUMBIA BEVEL-GEAR
CHAINLESS who would willingly
give it up for any other wheel.
Direct testimony Is always tetter tian
hearsay evidence. If yoa desire to Snow
atont Bevel-Gear Chaliless Bicycles, do not
ask a person who has never ridden one, or
is in any way connected -with a minnfac
torer who does not make them. Inquire of
riders of the Colamtla Bevel-Gcar Chaln
lcss. There arc thousands of them through
out the country. They are to 6e met in
.wrv cltv. in almost everv town of the
United States so popnlar has the machine.
Become in in: snort space oi a year ana a
half. There are reasons tor this. The
Chalnless Is easier to take care of than the
chain wheel. It has a longer life. Every
ounce of power applied to the pedals Is male
effective. This last advantace over chain
driven wheels is apparent the moment you
mount the machine. The Chalnless seems to
possess an activity and life of its own.
Ton notice it in starting, stopplnjr, hacl
peddling, ridin sr on levels, and especially
in ascending grades.
