Catarrh of the
For many years it has been supposed that
Catarrh of the Stomach caused indigestion
and dyspepsia, but the truth is exactly the
opposite. Indigestion causes catarrh. Re
peated attacks of indigestion inflames the
mucous membranes lining the stomach and
exposes the nerves of the stomach, thus caus
ing the glands to secrete mucin instead of
the juices of natural digestion. This is
called Catarrh of the Stomach.
Kodol Dyspepsia Cure
relieves all inflammation of the mucous
membranes lining the stomach, protects the
nerves, and cures bad breath, sour risings, a

SAT up with the water trickling
down my back. The cry was re
peated, out of the west.
I knew the woods, but night al
ters the most familiar places. I made
directly toward the woman's voice,
which guided me more plainly, but left
off running as my ear detected that she
was only in perplexity. She called at
intervals, imperatively, but not in con
tinuous screams. She was a white wo
man, for no squaw would publish her
Climbing over rocks and windfalls I
came against a solid log wall and heard
the woman talking in a very pretty
chatter the other side of it. She only
left off talking to call for help, and left
off calling for help to scold and laugh
again. There was a man imprisoned
with her, and they were speaking Eng- f
lish, a language I did not then under
stand. But what had happened to
them was very plain. Theyhad wan
dered into a pen built by hunters to
trap bears and could not find the bush
masked and winding opening, but were l
-raveling around the walls.
I found my way to the opening and
whistled. At once the woman ceased
her chatter and drew in her breath,
and they both asked me a question
that needed no interpretation. I told
them where they were, and the woman
began talking at once in my own
tongue and spoke it as well as I could
"In a bear pen? George, he says we
are in a bear pen! Take us out, dear

I took her horse by the bridle and
led him and so got both the riders out
;ide. They had no tinder, and neither
had I, and all of us groped for the way
y which they had come to the bear
en. The young man spurred his horse
n every direction and turned back un
ble to get through.
Though we could not see one another,
[knew that both the adventurers were
young and that they expected to be
mlled to severe account for the law
ess act they were committing. The
irl, talking English or French or Mo
hawk almost in one breath, took the
>lame upon herself and made light of
the boy's self reproaches.
She laughed and said, "My father
thinks I am with Miss Chantry, and
d~iss Chantry thinks I am with my
!ather. He will blame her for letting
e ride with George Croghan to meet
him and lose the way and so get into
the bear pen. And she will blame my
rather, and your dearest Annabel will
let the Count de Chaumont and Miss
hantry fight it out. It is not an
affair for youth to meddle with,
Having her for interpreter the boy
nd I consulted. I might have led him
back to our hunting camp, but it was
hard road for a woman and an im
>ossibs one for horses. There was no
nhabited house nearer than De Chau
ont's own. He decided they must
etreat to the road by which they had
ome into the bear pen, and gladly
rcepted my offer to go with him; dis
ounting and leading Annabel de
haumont's horse while I led his. We
passed over rotten logs and through
black tangles, the girl bending to her
saddle bow, unwearied and full of
laughter. It was plain that he could
not find any outlet, and falling behind
with the cumbered horse he let me
guide the party.
I do not know by what instinct I
felt my way, conscious of slipping be
tween the wild citizens of that vast
town of trees. But we finaldy reached
clearing and saw across the open
space a lighted cabin. Its sashless
windows and defective chinks were
gilded with the yellow light that comes
from a glowing hearth.
"I know this place!" exclaimed An
nabel. "It is where the Saint-Michels
used to live before they went to my
father's settlement at Le Rayville.
George, why don't you go and knock on,
It was not necessary, for the door
opened and a man appeared, holding
his violin by the neck. He stepped
out to look around the cabin at some
horses fastened there, and saw and
I was not sorry to be allowed to
enter, for I was tired to exhaustion
and sat down on the floor away from
the fire. The man looked at me suspi
iously, though he was ruddy and good
natured. But he bent quite over before
De Chaumont's daughter and made a
flourish with his hand in receiving
young Croghan. There were in the
-abin with him two women and two
little girls, and a Canadian servant
like a fat brown bear came from the
rear of the house to look at us and then
went back to the horses.
All the women began to speak, but
Annabel de Chaumont could talk
faster than the four others combined;
so they knew our plight before we
learned that they were the Grignon
and Tank families, who were going
into the west to find settlement and
had made the house their camp for
one night. 'rho Dutch maid, dark and:
round eyed, and the flaxen little Gri
gnon had respect for their elders and
h~ld their tongues while Mtme. Tank
and Mine. Crignon spoke, but Annabel
:d Chaumont was like a grove of spar
rows. The world seemed swarming
with young maids. The travelers were
mere children, while the count's
daughter was startling as an angel.
EHer clothing fitted her body like an
exquisite sheath. I do not know .what
it was, but it made her look as slim
as a dragon fly. IBex white and rose
pink face had a high arched nose, and
was proud and saucy. She wore her
hair beaten out like mist, with rich
curly shreds hanging in front of her
ears to her shoulders. She shook her
ead to set heri hat straight, and
turned her eyes in rapid smiling
sweeps. I knew as well then as I
ever did ai fterwanrd that she was bound
to befool every man that came near
Thee were only two benches in the
cabin, but it was floored and better

dowx in a long row before the fire. I

sorbed all eyes and all attention. She
told about a ball, to which she had rid
den with her governess and servants a
three days' journey and from which
all the dancers were riding back a
three days' journey to join in another
ball at her father's house. With the j
hospitality which made Le Ray de 1
Chaumont's manor the palace of the I
wilderness as it existed then, she in
vited the hosts who sheltered her for 1
the night to come to the ball and stay
all summer. And they lamented that
they could not accept the invitation, .
being obliged to hurry on to Albany, 1
where a larger party would give them
escort on a long westward journey.
The head of the house took up his l
bow, is if musing on the ball, and An- I
nabel de Chaumont wriggled her feet
faster and faster. Tireless as thistle- z
down that rolls here and there at the c
will of the wind, up she sprang and t
began to dance. The children watched t
her spellbound. I sat up to watch her,
and she noticed me for the first time
"Look at that boy! He has been hurt i
-the blood is running down his cheek!"
she cried. "I thought he was an In
dian-and he is white!"
I wanted the women to leave me
alone, and told them my head bad been
broken two days before and was nearly
well. The mothers, too keen to wash
and bandage to let me escape, opened
a saddle pack and tore good linen.
George Croghan stood by the chim- t
ney, slim and tall and handsome. His
head and face were long, his hair was
of a sunny color and his mouth corners 1
were shrewd and good natured. I x
liked him the moment I saw him. 1
Younger in years than I, he was older t
in wit and manly carriage. While he
looked on it was hard to have Mme.
Tank seize my head in her hands and s
examine my eyebrow. She next took
my wrists, and, not satisfied, stripped e
up the right sleeve and exposed a cres- t
cent shaped scar, one of the rare vac- t
cination marks of those days. I did
not know what it was. Her animated t
dark eyes drew the brows together so
that a pucker came between them. I
looked at Croghan and wanted to ex- s
claim: "Help yourself! Anybody may t

own fagged outside my father's door i

cattered to woods and waters.

"What has he needed?" said my fa- t
