Reliable evidence is abundant that women
i are constantly being restored to health by
Lydia E, Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
, The many testimonial letters that we are continually pub
lishing in the newspapers hundreds of them are all genu
ine, true and unsolicited expressions of heartfelt gratitude
for the freedom from suffering that has come to these
women solely through the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Money could not buy nor any kind of influence obtain
such recommendations ; you may depend upon it that any
testimonial we publish is honest and true if you have any
doubt of this write to the women whose true names and
addresses are always given, and learn for yourself.
Read this one from Mrs. Waters:
Camden, N.J. "1 was sick for two years with norvou3 spells, and
my kidnoys were affected. I had a doctor all the time and Used a
galvanic battery, but nothing did mo any good. I was not able to go
to bed, but spent my timo on a couch or In a sleeping-chair, and soon,
became almost a skeleton. Finally my dootor wont away for his
hoalth, and ray husband hoard of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetablo
Compound and got mo some. In two months I got relief ana now I
am like a now woman and am at my usual weight. I recommend
your medicine to overy one and so does my husband." Mrs. Tillib
Watkiis, 1135 Knight St., Camden, N.J.
And thlsione from Mrs. Haddock:
Utioa, Okla. "I was weak and nervous, not able to do my work
and scarcely ablo to bo on my feet. I had backache, headache, palpi
tation of the heart, troublo with my bowels, and inflammation. Sinco
taking tho Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetablo Compound I am better
than I have been for twenty years. I think it is a wonderful medi
cine and I have recommended it to others." Mrs. Mary Ann Had
dock, Utica. Oklahoma.
Now answer this question if you can. Why should a
woman continue to suffer without first giving Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial ? You know that
it has saved many others why should it fail in your case?
For 30 yoar3 Lydia E. Pinkham's Vogctablo
Compound has been tho standard remedy for fo
malo ills. No ono sick with woman's ailments
doos justice to hcrsolf if sho docs not try this fa
mous modlclno made from roots and herbs, it
has restored so many sufforlngwoiuontolicalth.

Josub and his party are on tholr
last Journey to Jerusalem, a most
eventful Journey. It led him between
Samaria and Galileo (v. 11, marg.) and
into, or through, an unknown, un
named village To ub this is tho most
heroic and momentous moment in his
tory. JoBua knew that his hour was at
hand. Ho know all that awaited him
in Jerusalem, yet ho "sot his face
aa a flint" nnd nothing could turn him
from his purpose, his crowning work.
Jesus, however, was novor too bUBy or
in too great haste to do a deod of

leprosy begins within, is insidious in
Its progress; it defies, shuts men out
of tho society of the clean. It renders
its victims helpless and hopeless, has
no remedy and receives no holp from
men; in consumes and finally kills.
This was a terrlblo spectacle that
greeted Jesus' eyes as ho entered tho
village, for these lopers wore com
pelled to live on tho outstdo. Notice
(v. 12) that they Btood "afar off"
(Eph. 2:13), Indeed, bo far off that
they wore compelled to "lift tholr
voices" In order to mako known their
request, although It may have been
that tho disease had reached their
vocal organs. Tho Mosaic law com
pelled the leper thus to stand afar off.
Lev. 13:45, 46. Tholr salutation waa
tho cry of tho needy mado to ono In
authority. The word "Master" hero
used is not that which usually means
teacher, but rather ono that would bo
applied to one In authority, an ap
pointee or a commander. Thoy must
have either recognized his power or,
having heard of his miracles they ap
pealed to him to exercise a llko power
on their behnlf. Thero was no other
who could possibly give them relief,
even no the sinners' only hope Is to
meet Jesus. He, and ho alone, can
cleanse them from their uncleauness
and wretchedness. Jesus never
passed that way again, this was their
only opportunity. Their need drovo
them to him. Ofttlmos our distress
and need are blessings in disguise in
that they drive ua to Jesus. Though
afar off, and though only ono drow
nigh (v. 16), yet It was the prlvllego of
them all, as It Is also our privilege to
"draw nigh," Eph. 2:13. Their cry
did not fall upon deaf cars (Isa. 59:1).
It was a brief, but to tho point, peti
tion. Thoy knew what they needed and
drove straight to tho point Their ap
peal to his mercy met with Immediate
responso, so also will tho cry of tho
needy sinner meet with a llko re
sponse (Horn. 10:13). Tho record does
not tell U3 about the faith of thes
men and it is useless for ub to spec
ulate. The cry of faith will havo Its
answer, Matt. 9:29. Tholr prayer was
brief, It must havo been humblo, be
lieving, earnest and specific, for when
"ho saw them" (v. 14) ho gave direc
tions as to tho manner whereby thoy
might bo cleansed. Ho could havo
spoken or have touched them, but
his way at that timo was to utter a
command. This resulted in (a) a ful
' filling of the law, (b) a test for tholr
faith, (c) a testimony to the priests.
They showed their genuine earnest
ness by immediate obedience, they
took him at his word. The record la
wonderfully suggestive, "as thoy wont
they woro cleansed." Faith and works,
obedience and results. When we act
upon his Dimple yet sublime word wo,
too, will receive a blessed answer to
our every need. As wo look to him,
our great high priest, as wo talto our
eyes off of self, we shall be cleansed,
Bore Witness Before Men.
II. A Grateful Heart, vv. 15-19. Tho
revelation of cleansing brought differ
ent results to these lepers. "Ono of
them" came back at once to expross
his gratitude. Beforo he could scarce
ly speak his petition, now ho cries
with a "loud voice." This is a sugges
tion as to the completeness of his
enre. Ho at once uses his restored
voice to "glorify God," and it looks as
though he bure this witness beforo he
testified to men; (a) being healed
scorns also to havo opened his eyes
as to tho character of Jesus. Ho not
only returned thanks, but "worshiped
him." Nor does Jesus refuse to ac
copt such worship an ovldenco of his
deity, see Acts 15:25,26; John 5:23
and Hob. 1:6. The nino wero too oc
cupied In rejoicing with their friends,
too busy with fulflllng duties from
which thoy had long been separated, to
express their thanks. It Is ulgnlflcsjit
that U1b ono was a Samaritan "a
stranger." This la the one of whom
loss would bo expected, yet Luke re
cords other good things about the
Samaritan, Ch. 10:33-35. (Luke, as the
companion of Paul, shown us not only
in his gospel, but in his life of Paul
Christ's outreachlngs towards the Gen
tiles.) The Jowa havo uo dealings
with tho Samaritans (John 4; 9), but
sin makes strange companions. Jesus
expresses in his question (v. 17 It. V.)
great astonishment, which was evi
dently twofold: (a) first tho ingratl
tudo of tho nine, and (b) tho gratitude
of thla "stranger." It is intcrosthig to
recall that thoso three persons who,
during his earthly ministry, recolvod

Tho northwest Indian tribes are ready
for war and are only held back by the
refusal of the friendly Wyandots to Join.
The latter are demanding the return of

came back instantly to memory, dis

a resemblance, now that I thus con
nected tho two together. Sho had told
mo her father waa a French officer
but dead, killed in action. Perhaps she
thought bo; had been deceived Into
thla belief. Yet I waa convinced now
that this was tho man; that ho had
boen living up to a few hourB before,
and had met his fato here In tho wil

blow. Her father! Tho knowledge
Boomed to shock me, to leavo mo help

from tho remembrance of the daugh
ter. Whero would sho bo that night?
Safe at Harmar? or In the dark wooda

hidden cabin? This island rendez

coincident of namo and history, yot
what was the mystery that envoloped
both? Why wntwkhls Captain D'Auv
ray hiding here, and why did she deny
that he was still living? Tho more I
thought, tho moro tangled grow tho
Bkeln. Brady called me, nnd I stopped
back into tho othor room, still dazed,
grasping tho medal in my hand.
"Well, what 1b it?" ho asked gruff
ly. "What havo you found out?"
I told him briefly, describing the ap
pearance of tho body, and handing him
the medal. Ho turned it over In the
light of tho torch.

"Beyond doubt; it waa pinned to

He got to his feet with my help, and

It up. "It was a big follow who -wore
this coat, about your size."
I drow up tho bench, and sat down.
"Thero Is more to this than you have
discovered, Brady," I said, determined
to explain. "Did you chanco to see a
French girl back at Fort Harmar?"
Ho ohook his head.
"Not as I remombor; who was Bho?"
"That is what I would llko to know.
I hoped you might havo picked up
somo information. Sho was at General
Harmar's offlce a young girl, not
much over twenty, I should judge,
with dark eyes and hair, speaking
broken English, her dress halt Indian
and half border French. She was one
in a thousand, to my thought What

His eyes, Interested, questioned me,
but he sat silent

pretended to know mo, and actually

than I can guess. Tho llttlo minx is
full of tricks, but plays them so sauci

angry. By heavens! ono glanco in her
eyes would disarm any man "
"Yes," ho Interrupted, "but whence
camo sho there, and for what pur
poso?" I told him all I know, and ho listened
eagerly, his eyes on Schultz puttering
about tho Are.
"Sho must havo Jested In her throat
to travel hither with tho renegade"
"I fear It was not Jest," I said sober
ly. "She was in a mood to do evon
that, and I do not think she feared the
man. They may bo on our trail now;
ay! closo at hand, Brady, for thoy both
know those woods better than cither of
us. 'T Is my thought bow, tho dead
man yonder was the lass' father, and
sho would know his cabin."
His eyes turned to the door, and
then to tho food Schultz was placing
on tho tnblo before us, but whatever
hie thought It remained unuttered. As
we sat thero eating, ho was apparent
ly turning It all over In his mind, try
ing to drnw tho tangled ends of tho
skein together. Aa we finished tho
meal, somo newly awakenod curiosity
caused mo to glanco out again into
tho roar room. It was gloomy with
shadows, tho bodies of man and dog
beyond view; yet what I perceived
brought from my lips a eudden excla
mation. "Brady, somo ono has boen In hero!
The outer door Is unlatched yes and
the soldier's coat Is gono!"
Wo searched tho room carefully, but
discovered no sign of Its having been
entered, except for tho door stnndlng
slightly ajar, and tho disappearance of
tho red coat. We dare not carry a
torch Into tho open, and the night was
too dark for us to trace marks on the
ground. Brady stood in the glow of
firelight, looking to tho priming of his
rifle, his faco shadowed.
"I am going out awhile, Hayward,"
he said finally. "Yes, I am all right
now. I meant to take you along, but,
I reckon, it will bo safer not to leave
tho Dutchman hero alone. However, I
don't think thero will be any moro
Ho slipped out tho back way, disap
pearing instantly, and I picked up my
own rifle, bado Schultz remain where
ho was, and followed, with tho purpose
of scouting about the Island. I could
percelvo tho now danger wo wero In.
Suppose the assassin, eager to save
himself from suspicion, should bo at
tracted to that camp of raiders, and,
relying on tholr friendship for protec
tion, chargo us with the murdor of
D'Auvray. What mercy could wo hope
for at their hands? Beyond doubt tho
band was composed of ambitious young
warriors, who had already tasted
blood, and under control of no chief
ablo to restrain them, If tholr wild pas
sions should bo appealed to.
But I emerged Into darkness and si
lence. Quickly as I had mado this de
cision I was too Into. Tbo scout had
already disappeared across tho narrow
open space, .and vanished Into tho
frlngo of trees. Thero was nothing to
guide me, excopt a vague senso of di
rection, yet I felt my way forward
through tho dense tree growth, hear
Ing no sound of movement, and com
pelled to move Blowly until I emergod
at the shore, and conld percelvo the
stars reflected on tho surface of still
wnter. As I lingored thero clear of tho
woods' shadqw, my courage gradually
returned, and our situation appearod
less desperate Whoovor tho fellow
was who had killed D'Auvray he might
have as much cause to fear tho Indian
raider aB wo did. The mere fact that
ho woro a red coat was no direct proof

I do not know how long a timo
passed, only I had circled the houso
twice, skirting the edgo of tho woods
In my rounds, keoplng woll in the
blacker shadows, and moving noise
lessly, overy nervo alert Back of tho
houso I discovered a mound of earth,
heaped aB a roof, over an opening in
tho ground, ovldontly a cellar of some
kind. So far as I could discover, by
groping in tho darkness, thero was
nothing concealed within, but the en
trance offered a good hiding place, and
I sat down thoro whero I could see In
evory direction, with my rlflo acrosB
my knees. The stars yielded a spec
tral light, and no ono could move
across tho clearing unobserved. I sat
thero for ton minutes, seeing and hear
ing nothing, gradually growing drowsy
In tho silenco, my hoad sinking back
against tho earth mound. Yet I re
mained awake and watchful, although
when I first perceived a figure flitting
out of the black frlngo of woods, I half
bolloved it a dream. But it was no
dream, and I sat up suddenly, my
heart beating liko a triphammer, and
stared. 1 could boo llttlo, not enough
to dotermino whether tho intruder was
savage or white, merely porcelvlug an
Indistinct form, crouching low, yet ad
vancing directly toward me. Thero
was no hesitancy, no ovldonce of fear,
but merely tho natural caution of ono
traveling alone in tho wilderness. At
first I believed it to be Brady return
ing, yet hesitated to step boldly forth,
for tho figure appeared email and un
natural, baroly porceptlble against tho
darker background of earth.
To rendor myself more secure I drow
cautiously back a step within tho col
lar entrance, and waited breathlessly,
bracing myself to meet either friend
or foo. I could no longer seo the In
truder, nnd the caution of his ap
proach made mo certain the man muBt
bo an enemy. Surely Brady, evon
while exercising overy precaution,
would never hesitate llko this, and
gropo his way forward Inch by inch.
I felt tho hot blood leap In my veins;
then tho fellow, still crouching low,
but with rifle barrel advanced, ap
peared around tho edge of tho pile of
earth, scarcely two yards distant All
I saw clearly was a hat with a feather
In It, an Indistinct outlino of form,
and tho black rifle barrel. My rifle
camo up to tho shoulder, and I slipped
Into the open.
"Stop whero you aro!" I ordered
sharply. "Drop your gun, and stand
I heard a quick breath of surprise,
almost an exclamation: tho stock of
the rifle sank to tho ground, but the
hnnds still clung to tho barrel, as the
startled flguro straightened up. ' I
could not distinguish the face, only
tho white outline shadowed by tho
hat, yet tho short, slender form was
