The most loathsome and repulsive of all .
Hiving things is the serpent, and the vilest and
most degrading of all human diseases is Contagious Blood Poison. The
serpent sinks its fangs into the :Hesh and ahnost instantly the poison passes
through the entire body. Contagious Blood Poison, beginning with a little
1ilcer, soon contaminates every drop of blood and spreads throughout the
whole system. Painful swellings appear in the groins, a red rash and
copper colored. splotches break out on the body, the mouth and throat
become ulcerated, and the hair and eye brows fall out ; but these symptoms
are mild compared to the wretchedness and suffering that come in the latter
stages of the disease when it attacks the bones and more vital parts of the
body. It is then that Contagious Blood Poison is seen in all its hideous
ness. The deep eating abscesses and sickening ulcers and tumors show
the whole system is corrupted and poisoned, and unless relief comes soon
this serpent disease tightens its coils and crushes out the life. The only
antidote for the awful virus is S. S. S. It is natua'e's reedy, com
posed entirely of vegetable ingredients. S. S. S.
destroys every vestige of the poison, purifies the
blood and removes all danger of transmitting the
awful taint to others. Nothing else will do this.
Strong mineral remedies, like mercury and potash,
dry up the sores and drive in the disease, but do not cure permanently.

stepped into the tunnel's
mouth. The underground path to De
Chaumont's manor descended by ter
races of steps and entered blackness.
The ground -was slippery, and thick
darkness seemed to press the soul out
of the body. Yet I liked it, for when
we reached the staircase of rock that
entered the house she would vanish.
And so it was.
She did say, "Good night-and good

On reaching my room, the first thing
I did was to make a bundle of every
thing I considered necessary and de

an easier mind I closed my eyes and
opened them to find sunset shining
through the windows and Dr. Chantry

you, my lad," said he. "And now I
am going to take mine."
"I have slept all day!"
"Renegades who roam the woods all

"How do you know I have been in
the woods all night?"
"I heard you slipping up the tunnel
stairs without any shoes on at day
light. I have not been able to sleep
two nights on account of you."
"Then why don't you go to bed your
self, my dear master?"
"Because I am not going to let you
give me the slip another time. I am
responsible for you, and you will have
me on your back when you go prowl

"Again?" I questioned innocently.
"Yes, again, young sir! I have been
through your luggage and find that
you have packed changes of clothing
and things necessary and unnecessary
to a journey-even books."
There was no escaping his tenacious
grip. He sat by and exercised me in
Latin declensions while I dressed. We
had our supper together. I saw no
member of the household except the
men Pierre and Jean. Dr. Chantry or
dered a mattress put in my room and
returned there with me.
We talked long on the approaching
departure of the count and Mime. de

head drawn near together.

As soon as he had made this em

The more I reasoned with him the
more obstinate he became. There was
a wonderful spring called Saratoga,
which he had visited with De Chau

Into the wilderness. He was convinced
that the water would set him on foot
for the rest of the journey.
"What will you do in France?" I
put to him. He knew no more than I
what I should do.
And there was Count de Chaumont
to be considered. How would he re
gard a leave taking?
Dr. Chantry was as insensible to De
Chaumont as I myself. Still he agreed
to write a note to his protector while
I prepared my quill to write one to
Mme. de Ferrier. With the spirit of
the true parasite he laid all the blame
on me, and said he was constrained by
duty to fellow and watch over me,
since it was impossible to curb a na
ture like mine. And he left a loophole
open for a future return to De Chau
mont's easy service when the hard
ships which he willingly faced brought
him his reward.
This paper he brazenly showed me

the rough stage which had
brought us across a cordu

The Iroquois had long made Saratoga
a gathering place, but I thought of this
Oneida as abiding in St. Regis village,
for our people did not come to the sum

Forgetting that I was a runaway, I
met him heartily and the fawn eyes in
his bald head beamed their accus

where my gther and mother and the
rest of the t'ribe were, and he said they

He had been at Montreal and had un
dertaken to guide a Frenchman as far
as Saratoga. It is not easy to surprise
an Indilan. But I wondered that Shen
edonk accepted my presence without a
question, quite as If he had himself
made the appointment.
The Indian led me upstairs to one of
the chambers and opened the door.
In the room was Louis Philippe, and
when we were shut alone together he
embraced me and kissed me as I did

make at this time. We will begin
with my family. Any belief in you
into which I may have been betrayed
'is no guarantee of Monsieur's belief.
You understand," said Louis Philippe,

of France, restored to your family and
proclaimed, of what use is it to present
yourself before the French people now?
They are besotted with this Napoleon.
The empire seems to them a far great
er thing than any legitimate monarchy.
Of what use, do I say ? It would be a
positive danger for you to appear in
France at this time! Napoleon has
proscribed every Bourbon. Any prince
caught alive in France will be put to
death. Do you know what he did last
year to the Duke d'Enghien? He sent
into Germany for the duke, who had
never harmed him, never conspired
against him-had done nothing, in fact,
except live an innocent life away from
the seat of Napoleon's power. The
duke was brought to Paris under guard
and put in the dungeons of Vincennes.
He demanded to see Bonaparte. Bona
parte would not see him. He was
tried by night, his grave being already
dug in the castle ditch. That lovely
young fellow-he was scarcely above
thirty-was taken our: to the ditch and
shot like a dog!"
I stood up with my hands clinched.
"Sit down," said Louis Philippe.

time for anybody but that jealous mon

burst bounds and told him impetuously
that I was going to learn what the
world held for me. Without means,
without friends or power or prospects
or certainty of any good results-im
pudent, reckless, utterly rash-"I am
going," I cried, "because I must go!"
"There is something about you which
inspires love, my boy," said Louis
Philippe, and I heard him with as
tonishment. "Perhaps it comes from
the mother. She was a witcher of all
"I cannot understand why any one
should love so ignorant a creature, but
God grant there be others that love

and you told me the history of all my

seemed the separation from those that
belonged to me. Separation from

My face burned and probably went
white, for I felt the blood go back on
my heart. He took my hand and
"Don't chain yourself behind that

I wish I could be of use to you in

love this bold, pure face. It bears
some resemblance to Mime. Royal. The
sister of the dauphin is a good girl,
not many years .your senior, much
dominated by her uncles, but a royal
duchess. It is the fashion now to
laugh at chivalry. You are the most
foolish example of it I ever saw. It
is like seeing a knight without horse,
armor or purse, set out to win an
equipment before he pursues his quest.
Yet I love you for it, my boy."

more friends like you."
"Why,-I can be of no use. I cannot

I could, what is my influence there? I

fellow you have with you?"
I groaned and laughed.
"Carry him on my back. There is
no getting rid of him. He is following

"How will you support him?"
"He is supporting me at present.
But I would rather take my chances
"You have another follower," said
Louis Philippe. "Your Indian has
been in France, and after hearing our
talk at the camp he foresaw you might
be moved to this folly and told me he
intended to guide you there or wher
ever you go!"
"And Skenedonk too!"
I shook with laughter. It was so like
Skenedonk to draw his conclusions and
determine on the next step.
"What shall I do with them?"
"The old master can be your secre
tary, and as for the Indian, you can
take him for your servant."
"A secretary and a servant for an
outcast without a penny to his pouch!"
"You see the powers that order us

But at night the character of the line

An ingenious timekeeping arrange

by that famous Duke of Bridgewater
who laced South Lancashire with ca

The duke was a great stickier for punc

workmen on his estate at Worsley did
not returu to work after dinner as
promptly as they left off when the
clock struck 12. When he remonstrat
ed, he was told that while the work
men always heard the clock strike 12,
they often failed to hear the single
stroke of 1. The Duke of Bridgewater
quickly found a remedy for this diffi
