Those who have ever felt its keen, cutting pains, or witnessed the intense
suffering of others, know that Rheumatism is torture, and that it is right
ly called " The King of Pain."
All do notsufferalike. Some are suddenly seized with the most excrucia
ting pains, and it seems every muscle and joint in the body was being torn
asunder. Others feel only occasional slight pains for weeks or months, when
a suddgn change in the weather or exposure to damp, chilly winds or night
air brings on a fierce attack, lasting for days perhaps, and leaving the pa
tient with a weakened constitution or crippled and deformed for all time.
An acid, polluted condition of the blood is the cause of every form and
variety of Rheumatism, Muscular, Articular, Acute, Chronic, Inflammatory
and Sciatic, and the blood must be purged and purified before there is an
endto your aches and pains. External applications, the use of liniments and
-plasters, do much toward temporary relief, but such treatment does not reach
the real cause or cleanse the diseased blood ; but S. S. S., the greatest of all
blood purifiers andtonics, does cureRheumatism by antidoting and neutraliz
, ing the poisonous acids and building up the weak and sluggish blood.0 It is
safeandreliablein allformsof Rheumatism. It makes
the old acid blood rich, and the pain-tortured mus
cles and joints are relieved, the shattered nerves are
made strong, and the entire system is invigorated and
toned up by the use of this great vegetable remedy.

"Butyour highness can understand
how an idea will haunt a man. It is
true I live a wretched life, but I amuse
myself trying to produce a perfect
vase. I have broken thousands. If a
shape answers my expectations, that
very shape is certain to crack in the
burning or run in the glaze."
"Then you don't make things to

yawning, "might perhaps interest me
more if some facts were not pressing
for discussion. I am a man of benevo

"Your royal highness"
"Stop! I have been a revolutionist,
like my poor father, whose memory
you were about to touch-and I forbid
It. But I am a man whose will it is
to do good. It is Impossible I should
search you out In America to harm my
royal cousin. Now I want to know
the truth about him."
Mme. de Ferrier had forgetten her
breath. We both stood fastened on
that scene in another world, guiltless
The potter shifted his eyes from side
to side, seeming to follow the burr
of his vessel upon the wheel.
"I find you with a creature I cannot
recognize as my royal cousin. If this
is he, sunk far lower than when he
left France In your charge, why are
two-thirds of his pension sent out from
New York to another person, while
you receive for his maintenance only
The potter bounded from his wheel,
letting the vessel spin off to destruc
tion, and danced, stretching his long
mustaches abroad in both hands as
the ancients must have rent their
clothes. He cried that- he had been
cheated, stripped, starved.
"I thought they were straitened in
Monsieur's court," he raged, "and they
have been maintaining a false dau
"As I said, Bellenger," remarked his
superior, "you are either a fool or the
greatest rascal I ever saw."
He looked at Bellenger attentively.
"Yet why should you want to mix
clews-and be rewarded with evident
misery? And bow could you lose him
out of your hand and remain uncon
scious of It? He was sent to the ends of
the earth for safety, poor shattered
child, and If he is safe elsewhere why
should you be pensioned to maintain
another child? They say that a Bour
bon never learns anything. but I pro
test that a Bourbon knows well what
he does know. I feel sure my uncle
intends no harm to the disabled heir.
Who is guilty of this double dealing?
I confess I don't understand it."
Now whether by our long and silent
stare we drew his regard, or chance
cast his eye upward, the potter that
instant saw us standing in the cloud
above him. -He dropped by his mo
tionless wheel, all turned to clay him
self. The eyeballs stuck from his face.
He opened his mouth and screeched as
if he had been started and could not

HE fool's outcry startled me
less than Mmne. de Ferrier.
She fell against me and sank
downward, so thiat I was
obliged to hold her up in my arms. I
had never' seen a woman swoon. I
thought she was dying and shouted
to them below to come and help me.
The potter sat sprawling on the
ground and did not bestir himself to
do anything. As soon as my hands
and mind were free I took him by the
scruff of the neck and kicked him be
hind with a good will. .My rage at
him for disregarding her state was the
savage rage of an Iroquois. The oth
er man laughed until the woods rang.
Mmne. do Ferrier sat up in what seem
ed to me a miraculous manner. We
bathed her temples wvith brandy and
put her on a cushion of leaves raked
up and dried to make a seat by the
fire. The other man, who helped me
carry her into the ravine, stood with
his hat off, as was her due. She
thanked him and thanked me, half
shrouding her face with her hood,
abashed at finding herself lost among
strangers in the night, which was my

us a whining like that uttered by a
My rage at the potter ending in good
nature, I moved to make some amends
for my haste, but he backed off.
"You startled us," said the other
ian, "standing up in the clouds like
ghosts. And your resemblance to one
who has been dead many years 1s
very striking, monsieur."
I said I w as sorry if I had kicked the
potter without warrant, but it seemed
to me a base act to hesitate when help
was asked for a woman.
"Yet I know little of what is right
among men, inonsieur," I owned, "I

attention as careful as his avoidance
when she wished to be unobserved. She
rose and came around the fire, mak

"Madame, I knew your family well.

"Do you remember the boy well?"
"I remember him perfectly."
The wailing in the cabin became
louder and turned to insistent howls.
Instead of a babe, the imprisoned
creature was evidently a dog. I won
dered that the potter did not let him
out to warm his hide at the fire.
"Did you ever see the boy again?"
"I did not see him again until he
was brought to Count de Chaumont's
house last summer."
"Why to De Chaumont? Le Ray de
Chaumont is not one of us. He is of
the new nobility. His chateau near
Blois was bought by his grandfather,
and he takes his name from the estate.

we could have killed the Terror."
The animal in the cabin by this time
was making such doleful cries that I
said to the potter:
"Let him out It Is dreadful to be
shut in by walls."
The potter, stooping half over and
rolling stiffly from foot to foot in his
walk, filled me with' compunction at
having been brutal to so pitiful a crea
ture, and I hurried to open the door
for him. T.he animal clawed vigorous
ly inside, -and the instant I pushed
back the Ill fitted slabs It strained
through and rushed on all fours to
the fire. Mine. de Ferrier fled back
ward, for what I liberated could hard
ly be seen without dread.
It was a human being. Its features
were a boy's, and the tousled hair had
a natural wave. While it crouched for
warmth I felt the shock of seeing a
creature about my own age grinning
at me, fishy eyed and black mouthed.
"There!"'Bellenger said, straighten
ing up in his place like a bear rising
from all fours. "That Is the boy your
De Ferriers saw in London."
I remembered the boy Mmne. Tank
had told about. Whether myself or
this less fortunate creature was the
boy, my heart went very pitiful to
ward him. Mine. de Ferrier stooped
and examined him. He made a juicy
noise of delight with his mouth.
"This Is not the boy you had in Lon
don, monsieur," she said to Bellenger.
The potter waved his hands and
"You believe, madame, that Lazarre
is the boy you saw in London?" said
"I am certain of it."
"What proofs have you?".
"The evidence of my eyes."
"Tfell that to Monsieur," exclaimed
"Who is Monsieur?" I asked.
"The eldest brother of the king of
France is called Monsieur. The Count
de Provence will be called Monsieur
until he succeeds Louis 'XVIIL and is
crowned Louis XVIII.-if that time
ever comes. He cannot be called Louis

THE FIRST STOVES.
They Superseded the Roman Stuba
In the Eighteenth Century.
A heating apparatus Called a "*stuba"
(stove) was widely usod among the
higher class of lomans before the be
ginning of the Christian era. This
class of beaters was fixed and immova
ble, besides being in several other re
spects wholly different from the mod
ern stove. In Germany and Scandina
via they were used in bath rooms and
bothouses dluring the middle ages.
They were usually constructed of
brick, stone or tile and were of im
mense size. They sometimes covered
the whole side of a twenty or thirty
foot room and often extended out into
the room as much as ten feet, in which
case the smooth, flat top was used' for
a bedstead, the heated surface impart
ing an agreeable feeling of warmth
during those cold nights of long ago
when such things as covers were quite
Cardinal Polignac of France was per
haps the first to attempt the construc
tion of a stove wholly of iron, this at
about the beginning of the eighteenth
century. The first real improvement
over the old Roman "stuba" was
brought about by Franklin in the year
1745. One of his efforts produced a
typical base burner, almost perfect and
a model of workmanship. Stoves were
not used in private houses to any great
extent prior to the year 1830.
A Piscatorial Gunner.
The jaculator fish, the piscatorial
gunner of the Javan lakes, uses his
mouth as a squirt gun and is a marks
man of no mean ability. -Go to a small
lake or pond filled with specimens of
jaculators, place a stake or pole in the
water with the end projecting from one
to three feet above the surface, place
a beetle or fly on top of the pole and
await developments. Soon the water
will be swarming with finny gunners,
each anxious for a shot at the tender
morsel which the experimenter has
placed in full view. Presently one
comes to the surface, steadily observes
his prey and measures the distance.
Instantly be screws his mouth into the
funniest shapes imaginable, discharges
a stream of water with precision equal
to any sha::pshooter, knocks the fly or
beetle into the water, where he is in
stantly devoured by the successful
Nimrod or some of his hungry horde.
This sport may be kept up as long as
