Thousands of men and women who
have felt the sting and torture of that
dread disease, Rheumatism, which is
no respecter of age, persons, sex,
color or rank, will be Interested to
know that it Is one of the easiest af
flictions of the human body to con

not a distinct disease In itself, but a
symptom caused by Inactive kidneys.
Rheumatism Is uric acid In the blood
and other waste products of the sys
tem which should be filtered and
strained out In the form of urine. The
function of the kidneys Is to sift these
poisons and acids out and keep the
blood clean and pure. The kidneys
however, are of sponge-like substance,
the holes or pores of which will some
times, either from overwork, cold or
exposure become clogged, and failing
In their function of eliminating these
poisons from the blood, they remain
In the veins, decompose and rWttllnr
about the joints and muscles, caust
the untold suffering and pain of rheu
matism and backache, often producing
m complications of bladder and urinary
disease, and general weakness.
The following simple prescription Is
aid relieve the worst cases of
fheun sm because of Its direct ac
tion uj... the blood and kidneys, re
lieving, too, the most severe forms of
bladder and urinary troubles: Fluid
Extract Dandelion, one-half ounce;
Compound Kargon, one ounce; Com
pound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three
ounces. Mix by shaking well in a bot
tle and take in teaspoonful doses after
each meal and at bedtime. The In
gredients can be bad from any pre
scription pharmaqv, and are absolutely
harmless and aaff V use at any time.

governors of North and Smith Carolina
ire reported to hnve quarreled. Hot li
states are In a turmoil over one Apple
weight,, an outlaw with political Influence,
(iriswoid allien himself with Barbara Os
borne. dauKhter of the governor of South
Carolina, while Ardmore espouses the
cause of Jerry Dangerfleld. daughter of
I he governor of North Carolina. These
two ladle are trying to fill the shoes of
their father, while the latter are miss
ing, unaware of each other's position,
both OrlSWold and Ardmore spt out to
mil-o the other prosecute. Ardmore or
ganizes a hlg hunt. Oil wold's men cap

covers the captive nnd leads him to Ards
lcv. her own prisoner. Orlswold and Hnr
hara explore the scene of Ihe disappear
ance and meet Ardmore and Jerry. Oris
wold refuses to recognize his friend.
CHAPTER XIV. Continued.
Orlswold's companion spoke to him
earnestly In a low tone for a moment,
and then Orlswold addressed Ardmoro
"I don't know what you pretend to
be, sir; but it may interest you to
know that I am the governor of South
"And this gentleman," cried Jerry,
pointing to Ardmore with her riding
crop, "though his hair Is mussed and
his scarf visibly untied, Is none other
than the governor of North Carolina,
and he Is not only on his own proper
ty, but in the sovereign state of which
he Is the chief executive."
Prof. Orlswold lifted his bat with
the least flourish.
"I congratulate the state of North
Carolina on having reposed -tuthorlty
In hands so capable. If this young lady
Is correct, sir. I will serve official no
tice on you that I have reason to be
lieve that a person natped Apple
weight, a fugitive from justice, Is
hiding on your property and in your
state, and 1 now formally demand that
you surrender him forthwith."
"if I may introduce myself," Inter
posed Jerry, "1 will say to you that
my name Is Geraldlne Dangerfleld,
and that this Applewelght person Is
now at Mr. Ardmore's house."
"I suppose," replied Miss Osborne
; with gentle Irony, "that he has the
pink parlor and leads the conversa
tion at table."
"You are quite mistaken," replied
! Ardmore; "but If It would afford you
! any satisfaction to see the outlaw you
I may look upon him In my wine cellar,
where, only an hour ago, I left him sit
' ting on a case of Chateau Bizet '82.
My ftjrther Intentions touching this
scoundrelly South Carolinian I need
not now disclose; but I give you warn
ing that the Applewelght issue will
soon and forever be terminated and in
a manner that will greatly redound to
the credit and the glory of the Old
"I trust," said Orlswold, "that the
prisoner, whom we cannot for a mo
ment concede to be the real Apple
welght, will not be exposed to scarlet
fever, pending a settlement of this
matter. And now, I have the honor
to bid you both good morning."
He and Barbara swung their horses
round and retraced their way, leav
ing Ardmore and Jerry gazing after
When the shabby boasts from the
stable at Turner Court House had
borne Miss Osborne and Orlswold out
of sight beyond the bungalow, Ard
more turned blankly to Jerry.
"Have I gone blind or anything?
Unless I'm crazy that was dear old
j Orlssy, but who is that girl?"
"That Is Miss Barbara Osborne, and
I hope she has learned such a lesson
i that she will not be snippy to me any
' more, If she Is the president general
of the Daughters of the Seminole
"But where do you suppose she
"I don't know, I'm sure; nor, Mr.
Ardmore, do I care."
"He said he represented the state
of South Carolina do you suppose
the governor has really employed
"I do not," said Jerry emphatically;
"for he appears Intelligent, and Intel
ligence Is something that would never
appeal to Gov. Osborne. It la quite
possible," mused Jerry aloud, "that
Miss Osborne's father has disappeared
like mine, and she Is running his of
fice with Mr. Groswold's aid. If so,
we shall probably have some fun be
fore we get through with this."
"If that's true we shall have more
than fun!" exclaimed Ardmore, thor
oughly aroused. "You don't know
iiissy. He's the smartest man alive,
and If he's running this Applewelght
case for Gov. Osborne, he'll keep us
"I wish you to remember, Mr. Ard
more, that you still have your oppor
tunity, and that I expect you to carry
this matter through to a safe conclu
sion and to the honor of the Old North
"I have no intention of falling. Miss
Dangerfleld;" and with this they
turned and rode slowly back toward
Prof. Orlswold and Miss Osborne
were silent until the forest again shut
Then, In a sequestered spot, Orls
wold suddenly threw up his head and
laughed long and loud.
"Do you Btippose they really have
Applewelght?" asked Barbara.
"Not for a minute! They told us
"Do You Suppose They Really Have Applewelght?"
that story merely to annoy us when
they found what we were looking for.
That touch about the wine cellar Is
characteristically Ardmoresque. If
they had Applewelght you may be
sure they wouldn't keep him on the

they had come.
The Prisoner In the Corn-Crib.
Jerry and Ardmore sat at a long
table In the commodious Ardsley li
brary, which was a modification of a
Gothic chapel. A large accumulation
of mall from the governor's office at
Raleigh had been forwarded, and Jer
ry insisted that It must be opened and
disposed of in some way. Gov. Dan
gerfleld was, It appeared, a subscriber
to a clipping bureau, and they had
been examining critically a batch of
cuttings relating to the New Orleans
"It's a good thing we got hold of
Collins," observed Ardmore, putting
down a clipping from a New York
paper In which the reports of Gov.
Dangerfleld's disappearance were ana
lyzed and tersely dismissed; "for he
knows how to write and he's done
a splendid picture of your father on
his throne attending to business; and
his little stingers for Osborne are the
work of a genius."
"There's a certain finish about Mr.
Collins' lying that Is refreshing," re
plied Jerry, "and I cannot help think
ing that he has a brilliant future be
fore him if he enters politics. Noth
ing pains me more than a careless,
Ill-considered, silly He, which Is the
best that most people can do. But It
would be very interesting to know
whether Gov. Osborne has really dis
appeared, or just how your friend the
Virginia professor has seized the
reins of state. Do you suppose he got
a Jug from somewhere, and met Miss
Osborne and "
"Do you think do you think she
may have er possibly closed one
eye in bis direction?" asked Ardmore
"Mr. Ardmore" and Jerry pointed
at him with a bronze paper-cutter to
make sure of his attention "Mr. Ard
more, If you ever Imply again by act,
word or deed that I winked at you I
shnll never, never speak to you again.
I should think that a man with a nice
sister like Mrs. Atchison would have
a better opinion of women than you
seem to have. I never saw you until
you came to my father's house to tell
me about the Jug and you know I
didn't. And as for that Barbara Os
borne, while 1 don't doubt that even
In South Carolina a Daughter of the
Seminole War might wink at a gen
tleman In a moment of extreme provo
cation, I doubt If she did, for she lacks i
animation, nnd has no more soul than
a gum overshoe."
The discussion ceased abruptly on
the appearance of Big Paul, the for
ester. "A body of South Carolina militia
Is marching across country from the
south. One of my men heord of It
down at Turner Court House last
night and rode to where the troops
were encamped. He learned that It
was a practice march for the militia.
There's several companies of Infantry,
bo he reports, and a piece of artillery "
"Bully tor old Grlssy!" exclaimed

Ardmore. "They're coming this way,
are they, Paul?" And the three bent
over the map.
"This is the place sir. They seem
to bo planning to get around Turner's
without stirring up the town. But it
would take a good deal to wake up
Turner's," laughed the big German.
Jerry placed her finger on the state
"If they dare cross that if they as
much as dare!"
"If they dare we shall show them
a few things. Take all the men you
need, Paul, to watch their movements.
That will do."
The forester lingered.
"You remember that we spoke the
other day of the log house on Rac
coon creek, where the Applewelghts
had driven off our man?"
"Y. a, Paul. It Is where the state
line crosses the heavy woods and the
furthest outpost, so to speak, on my
property. Also you said some of
these Applewelght fellows had been
cutting off the timber down there. If
I remember rightly."
"Yes, sir," replied the forester,
twirling his cap awkwardly. "But
some of the people on the estate have
He broke oft In an embarrassment
so unlike him that Jerry and Ardmore
looked at him curiously.
"Well, Paul, what's the matter? If
the cabin has been burned down It's
no serious matter."
"Why, sir; some of the men passing
there at night say they see lights and
hear sounds In the cabin, though no
one from the estate goes there. A
child died In the house last spring
and well, you know how some of
these people are!"
"Cheer up, Paul. We have bigger
business on hand than the chasing of
ghosts just now. When we get
through with these other things I'll
go over there myself and take a look
at the spook."
As Paul hurried away, Jerry seized
a pen and wrote this message:
Adjutant-Qeneral, Camp Dangerfleld,

"I gurus that will bring him run- BVJ

ant and ordering the message dls- HBV
patched immediately. VmB
Before luncheon a message was re- Bn
celved from Gilllngwater, to this ef- BBi

"Isn't that Just like Rutherford! AVI
He's afraid he won't be dressy enough; HBg
but If he knew that the South Carolina M
troops might shoot holes In his unt- iH
form he wouldn't be due here for IhYJ
couple of weeks, Instead of at nine (flYJ

They debated more seriously this ILbbbbb!
telegram from Collins at Raleigh sent jH
the previous evening:

"Things are certainly growing more IH
exciting." was Ardmore's comment. "I IH
suppose even a gifted liar like Col- H
tins can't muzzle the press forever." H
"You can't go on fooling all North H
Carolina all the time, either," said H
Jerry, "and I suppose when papa gets H
tired of being scared he will turn up H
in Raleigh and tell some plausible H
story about where he has been and H
what has happened. When It comes H
to being plausible no one can touch H
"Maybe he's dead," suggested Ard H
more gloomily. H
"That's a real Inspiration on your H
part. Mr. Ardmore; and it's very H
sweet of you to mention It, but I B
have no Idea that any harm has come H
to papa. It's too much trouble to get H
elected governor, without dying In H
office, and besides, papa Is none too H
friendly with the lieutenant governor
and would never think of allowing H
such a person to succeed him. But H
those bonds seem rather serious and H
I don't like the Idea of your Mr. Bill- H
lngs making a fuss at Raleigh." H
"That will be all right," remarked
Ardmore, blotting the last of a num-
ber of telegrams which he had been
writing, and pressing a button. "It's H
much more important for us to get H
Applewelght Into a South Carolina H
Jail; and It's not going to be so easy H
to do, now that Grlssy is working on M
the other side, and angry at me about M
that scarlet fever telegram." M
"There may be trouble," said Ard- M
more to his guests as they sat at H
luncheon. "But I should hate to have U
It said that my guests could not be M
taken care of here perfectly. I beg
that you will all remain." M
The luncheon was Interrupted by M
the arrival of a summons for Ard- M
more, who hurriedly left the table. M
Big Paul awaited him below, mount- M
ed and holding a led-horse. M

King Granary. M
The Crimea and the whole Black H
sea region, owing to the sparse popu-
lation to consume it. had a great sur-
plus of wheat. For centuries it was H
coveted by all hungry nations and H
exploited by the one with the strong- H
est armies. For centuries after Athens
bad feasted upon the grain-raising H
lands beyond the Bosphorus, Mlthrl- M
dates, as a preparation for his life and H
death contest with Rome, fell upon
the corn fields of the Crimea. Because
Sicily was yellow with wheat from ,!
earliest memory, through ages and H
ages she was raided by all the powers H
of the world. It was because of H
Egypt's corn, more plentiful than any- H
where else along the Mediterranean, H
that Caesar and Pompey wanted the a-H
land of the Ptolemies. It was when H
Rome held or controlled the granaries
her first and dearest conquests of H
Sicily. Sardinia, Spain and Egypt that
she could become mistress of the aaaV

No wonder English surnames abound B
in Ireland, since as far back as 1486 IH
an act was passed compelling the in-
habitants of certain Irish counties to Wm
"gae appareled like Engllahmen, and WM
ware their heads after the English H
manner, sweare allegiance and take H
English surnames." This act directed
every Irishman whom It concerned to
"take to him an English surname ol WM

White, Black, Browne; and that hfl II

The old darky had driven his fare 9

a dollar for his service. "What!", pro- H
