The liniment bottle and flinnel strip are
familiar objects in nearly every household.
They are the weapons that have been used for
generations to fight old Rheumatism, and are
about as effective in the battle with this giant
disease as the blunderbuss of our forefathers
would be in modern warfare.
Rheumatism is caused by an ac-d, sour
condition of the bloc -d. It is filled with acrid, irritating matter that settles
in the joints, muscles and nerves. and liniments and oils nor nothing
else applied externally can dislodge these gritty, corroding particles. They
wete deposited there by the blood and can be reached only through the blood.
Rubbing with liniments sometimes relieve temporarily the aches and
pains, but these are only symptoms which are liable to return with every
change of the weather; the real disease lies deeper, the blood and system
are infected. Rheumatism cannot be radically and permanently cured
intil the blood has been purified, and no remedy does this so thoroughly
and promptly as S. S. S. It neutralizes the acids and sends a stream
of rich, strong blood to the affected parts, which
dissolves and washes out all foreign materials, and the
sufferer obtains happy relief from the .orturing pains.
S. S. S. contains no potash a other mineral, but
is a perfect vegetable blood purifier and most
exhilarating tonic. Our physicians will advise, without charge, all who
writeabout their case, and we will send free our special book on Rheumatism
and its treatment. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., Atlanta, Ga.

e: anything about it except-to deny
ti:it I was different from others. Yet
,emetiimes this deep seated influence
in me would boil up. and I would go
out and fool somebody just to get the
tiing off my mind."
At this Donaldson dropped his head
into his hands and groaned.
"I know it's pretty bad, father," said
Donald. "You have a perfect right to
be ashamed of me. And, oh, my moth
er! What shall I say to her? But I
mustn't think of it. Let me get on
with my confession. How many tricks
have I played?"
This was probably not intended for a
question. aud yet I answered It. Sin
guarly euough. my answer coincided
with the general view as it was ex
prcssed in the long continued public
discussion that followed. both in and
out of print.
"There are seven chief mysteries
here, as I see the case," said I, count
ing them of' on my fingers. "There's
the matter of the expected robber, the
finding of the diamond collar, the ex
posure of Gillespie, the matter of
Wlamsley's hand, the prediction of the
vote, the disclosures regarding Jim
Bunn and the prediction of Gillespie's
"Don't. don't!" cried Donald. "I nev
er meant to predict his death. I've
said so ove:- and over again. I had no
more idea that he was going to die
than I had that I was going to die.
I meant jLst what I said-that if he
didn't speak then he'd never have the
chance. Coincidence can always be
counted upon except when you want it
right away. Wait, and it will always
"As to the robber, I made up any
sort of story that would make you
watch the safe. Healy gave me a de
scription of the packages. He had
seen you put them away. I thought that
the money was still in them, and I
hoped that you would scare Bunn away
or catch him if he was really planning
such a crime. I happened to have seen
William Hackett in New York, and I
knew how his looks had changed. I
saw In that a chance to impress you,
uncle, and I had made up my mind
that you must come to believe more
and more strongly in my powers in or
der that you would finally take my
word against Carl Archer's. Later, of
course, I did all that I could to impress
Mr. Bunn. I just worked on his feel
ings. I dragged him up to Mr. Kel
vin's that night. I did everything to
increase his superstition go that he
would eventually be afraid'of me and
confess to me and obey me. as he sub
"Thank heaven:"' I interje td.
"As to Gillespie," continu Donald,
"he was brought out here first by Carl,
who by that time had Mr. Bunn com
pletely in his power and was afraid
that I might shake the hold. Carl
also wanted to know what I was try
ing to do, whether I had trapped any
seret, whether I was aware that he
was pkgting to drive your business
into the trust so that he might be made
te manager of the concern and exer
lse a spurious generosity toward my
"Tim Ilealy saw a conversation be.
tween Gillespie and Carl in your room,
and that let me into the whole truth
about Gillespie and about the fight that
would be made for the control of the
branch road. I frightened him away
the first time by having Healy tell him
that he had received a telephone mes
sage from a Princeton friend of mine
saying he'd be in Tunbridge by the 3:30
"'If you see young Mr. Donaldson at
the house, professor,' said Healy, 'will
you give him this message?
"The bogus professor was in no posi
tion to meet a man from Princeton.
You have heard me tell the story of
Walmsley's hand. The prediction of
the vote was made merely to Impress
Bunn and was founded on the plan
which I had made to win Thorndyke
over and force Carl to vote openly with
Kelvin. Remember that Tim and I
knew some of Bunn's most secret
thoughts; that we caught many con
versation s between the dlfferen; parties
to this plot, and you wiht see nothing
mysterious in what I did. I was as
sisted, however, by inferences and by
hard thinking in two matters-the
finding of the deed and the trick by
which Carl smuggled the stolen money
Into that package of papers. It was
really there. I took it out while your
handbag containing the papers was at
the house that noon. That's all, uncle;
that's the whole story."
Now, It will be admitted, of cowse,
that here Is a rational explanation of
the whole matter if we ascribe Don
alds seeming prediction of Gillespie's
death to coincidence, but I own that
my opinion, like Mr. Kelvin's, is entire
ly unshaken. I believe that Donald
used material means when he could get
them and that when he couldn't he
bridged the gap with psychic power.
Donaldson does not agree with me in
"The power that you have, Donald,"
said he when the story had been told
upon the train, "is the sad power of
deception. You had it as a child.
Though your heart is honest, you run
to trickery as to your natural weapon.
It is a fault that you must break."
"I have sworn to do it, father," said
Ionald. "Amy Kelvin and I have talk
ed it over. She knew that I would con
fess everything today, even her own
share, and I have promised her that
never again In my life, for any con
ceiable purpose, will I descend to the
"You'll find that rather hard to live
up to. Don," said I, "especially in busi
ness. But I commend your resolution.
The harder it is to do the more it's
"By the way," said Donaldson, after
a pause, "what are you going to do
"Forgive him," I replied. "It's a
wrench, but I'm going to do it. Thorn
dyke's looking out for him now."
"Let him take his goods out of myL
house." said I. "It's all I'll ask of him.!
This has be en a trying day," I added.
"fu glad that it is drawing to a close."
"T're is one more thing to do," said
Donaldson gloomily as we rose to leave

THE SEVEN MYSTERIES.
ONALDSON, Donald and I rode
back to Tunbridge in a car of
our own behind a switch en
gine. During the ride Donald
gave us a complete statement of his
motives and conduct. There is no doubt
that he told the truth as he saw it.
-lf you could understand the ago
ides that I've suffered," he pleaded,
"you would forgive me. You proiuised
to do it anyhow."
"I have no idea of going back upon
that promise," said I. "But what have
I to forgive? I cannot believe that you
have intentionally deceived me."
"Yes. I have," he insisted. "I've been
trying to lie without lying and to tell
the truth without telling it. That's
the worst kind of deception. I wish I
could look back upon one good, honest,
"Well," said I, with a smile, "you
told me that you were making use of
a power not possessed by the general
ity of mankind. Understand me, I still
believe that in spite of what you said
to Mr. Kelvin. Otherwise I cannot ac
count for your knowledge of the exact
language used iii convtrsations which
you did not hear and which could not
have been reported to you, not to men
tion any other phases of this mystery."
'It's true," he groaned, "and that's
the worst of it. There!' lie cried sud
denly, pointing through the window of
the car which had not yet been drawn
out of the station. "Can you tell me
what those two men are talking
"Certainly not," I replied.
"I can," said lie. "The taller man is
trying to sell the other a horse. I
could describe the horse, which I have
never seen, not as he exists probably.
but as the man who is trying to sell
him has described him. Wouldn't that
seem like a miracle?"
"It would have that flavor," I ad
"I know what he is saying by the
motion of his lips," said Donald. "I
have learned to do it. I got the idea
from Tim Healy. You know that he
was deaf for years when he was
young, and he acquired the power
then. I am not very expert, but Tim
is a wonder. When I said that there
was somebody in Tunbridge who was
a thousand times more miraculous'than
I am. I meant Tim. He never men
tions it to any one except me."
A shudder ran through me at the
thought of Jim Bunn having been at
tended throughout his struggles and
his downfall by such a companion.
Bunn's lips, as I have said, were al
ways in motion. His desk was direct
ly opposite Healy's, and for little Tim
the experience must have been like lis
tening to the voice of another man's
"Let me tell the whole story." said
Donald. "You can't imagine what a
relief it will be to me. The first knowl
edge that I had of any trouble here
was in the spring, when Tim Hlealy
wrote to me that Carl Archer hated my
father and was trying to injure him.
"'He wa~lks up and downi in Mi. lHar
rington's room when there's no one
else there,' wrote Tim, 'and he talks
to himself. I can see him through the
glass partition, but he can't see me,. be
cause there's a reflection from that
side. I've seen him swear that he'll
do your father up. I don't knowv how
he thinks he's going to manage it, but
that's what he says.'
"I didn't know wvhat to make of it,
and I wrote back to Healy to keel) his
eyes open. He told me some things
that aren't worth mentioning now, but
thef made me sure that lie was not
mistaken. Now, uncle, could I tell you
that? Could I tell my father? Tim
couldn't prove anything. He thought
that if it were told he'd merely make
an enemy of MIr. Archer and do no
good to anybody.
"After awhile Tim wrote me that
Mr. Bunn knew of Carl's feeling, but
that 3Mr. Bunn was in so much trouble
and so tangled up by owing money to'
Carl and you and my father that he
did not dare to take any action. Carl
was making promises to him and hold
ing him in c'heck.
"Finally Tim told me that you had.
$40,000 in the safe in your room and
that M1r. Bunni had made up his mind
to steal it. That was Tim's greatest
mistake. MIr. Bunn had already stolen
it, by changing the packages, and it
was hidden in the letter file, but Tim
did not succeed in catching that fact.
He told me that, considering how Carl
felt toward my Lather, there might be
serious trouble if that money should be
missing while my father was so bur
dened with this Hlarbrook Land com
pany. I thought that that was a mere
scare. I never dreamed that Carl could
really do such a thing.- However, I
made up my mind to come home and
"But when I got here 1 didn't know
what to do. You will remember that
I asked you whether you wer sur
rounded by trustworthy people, and
what you said~ to me that night about
Mr. Dunn and Carl simply drov'e me to
despair. I couldn't make accusations
against them upon the ev'idence of
what Healy had seen them say. I~e
begged ime not to do so. lie told me
that the two men would stand together
against him and thiat it would be his
ruin; you'd never have any confidence
in him again.
"Well," he continued, with a sob, "I
went to you, uncle, and said that I was
going to make a fool of myself, and
it's certain that I have kept my word.
1 ought to have told my father, and I
tried to do it, but as soon as I hinted
that there was anything wrong with
Carl I saw that he was as strongly
prejudiced as you were. And, as for
my mother, I couldn't tell her half the
truth or ask her to believe what was
so bad that I -couldn't believe it my
self-I really couldn't.
"Now, there's something in my chair
acter that is going to be rooted out of
it. There is a tendency to think of
trickery as a resource when I namI
hrd pressed. In games,. while I ami
always fair, I have a most unholy gift
of fooling the other fellow. But I
fight against this fault, and I am going
to fight harder.
"In this emergency I fell back upon:
my besetting sin. Of course I have al
ways known that you believed me to
be a queer boy with a certain super
natural gift. Why, it seems to me that
I found it out before I was five years
old It used to make me miserable ail

Taxpayers return what they own on
the first day of January, 1903.
Assessors and taxpayers will enter
the first given name of the taxpayer in
full, also make a separate return for
each party for the township the prop
erty is in, and where the taxpapers
owns realty, to insert the ptstoffice as
their place of residence, and those who
only own personal property, to give the
party's name who owns the land they
live on as their residence, which aids
the taxpayer as well as the County
Treasurer in making the collections
and preventing errors.
Every male citizen between the ages
of twenty-one and sixty years on the
first day of January, 1903, except those
incapable of earning a support from
being maimed, or from other causes,
shall be deemed taxable polls. This
does not apply to Confederate soldiers
over fifty years of age, who are exempt.
All the returns that are made after
the twentieth day of February will have
a penalty of 50 per cent. added thereto,
unless out of the county during the
time of listing. Not knowing the time
of listing is no excuse.
The assessing and collecting of taxes
is all done now in the same year, and
we Ihave to aggregate the number and
value of all the horses, cattle, mules,
etc., and their value that there is in
the county. and have same on file in the
Comptroller General's office by the
thirtieth day of June each year. And
from that time to the first day of Octo
ber each year the Auditor and Treas
urer's duplicate has to be completed
and an abstract of the work in the
Comptroller's office by that time, which
will show at a glance that the Auditor
has no time to take in returns or do
anything else much, between the first
day of March and the first day of Octo
ber each year but work on the books
and blanks. Therefore I hope that all
taxpayers will do me the favor of mak
ing their returns in time.
