When Edwari Barton asked Jack Kmgsley
If he would assist him in whining Eve Morri
son for his wife Jack mentally turned the
question over a few times, and as that effort
revealed no plausible reason why the request
could not be easily complied with, ho heartily
R6ured his friend that he would do tho best
he could for him.
A month later be began to wish he hadn't.
He hnd thought he know Eve pretty well,
for he had been a sort of self-appointed
bodj guard of hers during the twenty-one
y ars of. her existence, but in the beginning
cf that courtship, In which he was the con
necting link, he discovered certain elements
In Eve s character of which he had been hith
Lat' r on, arious phases of his own spir
itual and mental make-up that had previously
been but latent powors began to make them
selves alarmingly prominent, and he found
With dismav, that he was at that critical point
in the game playing with edged tools.
He lav awake all one night sympathizing
with I jmsoif for being so unfortunately placed

, "The Times'" Fashion Hints.
A charming shopping gown of mingled
green and fawn novelty cloth and trimmed in
silk braid, either blick or green, is made in
the following way: The short, round waist is
close fitting and fastens under the left arm
and on tho shoulder. The braid is laid across
the bust, the stripes decreasing in size, until
it reaches the belt, where it ends in a point.
Large leg of mutton sleeves of tho materi.il
have the braid applied just below tho elbow
and reaching to the extreme edge of the cuffs.
The skirt, whicli Is of medium width, rather
full in tho back, has the same arrangement of
braid down the front of the dress, lending a
panel effect to ho skirt and giving a com
plete air to the whole dress.

he went over to see Eve about it and learn
without rurther ado what Barton's fate was to
be. It was not an agreeable task. The diffi
dence with which she received all allusions to
his friend chilled tho ardor which he con
scientiously tried to infuse into tho lost cause,
and left him in doubt as to what were the
wiser course to pursue.
"So I suppose it is useless to urge his suit
further." he said at last, in tones of mingled
desp.iir and relief, at tho end of one of those
awkward periods of silence with which their
conversation had been interlarded that morn

looked earnestly at the swiftly falling snow,

There was another silence.
"Eve," and ho stepped nearer, "what would
you ay if I were to ask that question for my
self" Sho looked up. then, and with a laugh that
ended in a sob. said:
"Why, Jack Kingsley, I should say just
this: lhatjou are a greater goose than I
ever supposed you were, orjou would have
asked me that long ago instead of meddling
with other people's affairs and trjing to
marry me off to that lunatic. Oh, Jack, how
could jou be so dull?"
Jack haslilv waived nil reference to Ins
mental capacity, while he gathered tho little
woman in his arms aud vowed that he would
never make such a mistake again, an assur
ance which seemed to give them both an in
finite sense of satisfaction, from which they
were aroused some time later by the thought
of Barton, who was waiting impatiently at
Jack's rooms to learn what progress had been
made in the wooing.
"I am afraid of him. Jack," she said, anx
iously. "Ho has a revengeful nature. He
will think you were false to him. Send him
to me and let me explain it to him. Ho will
understand me and be more forgiving with
me than with you. I pity him through it all
and. wish I could have more respect for him.
I believe I could think better of him had ho
done his courting himself,rather than through
the agency of his friends "
Jack laughed at her fears and started away
to tell Barton tho ontnomn of tba morning's
TIME TO CALL A HALT.
Breakers Ahead for the American Han
Startling Estimates and Observations Mado
by a Distinguished Euro
A solidly-built man, pleasant of speech and
courteous of manner, vith an appearance of
such perfect health and contentment mat one
must regard him as a living te3timoniul of the
correctness of his own theory of therapeutics
such is Dr. 15. A. Walker, the noted special
ist in the treatment of diseases of the brain
and nervous system.
Dr. Walker was found in his office at No.
1411 Pennsylvaaia avenue, adjoining Willard's
notel, jestordav, and upon beinp: interrogated
regarding the alleged Increase of nervous dis
eases in the United States said:
"It is quite true that ueb diseases aro in
creasing at an alarming rate. There is no
question that neurasthenia, or nervous ex
haustion, is tho crowing maladj of tho day,
the physiological feature of the age. It is in
finitely worse in America than elsewhere. Tho
cramming process practiced in the schools,
tho exciting pleasure of social life, the shocks
and anxieties of business, the competitivo
zeal that enters oven into tho practice of
science, art, literature, and other professions
these aro amont: tho causes.
"Seven out of every ten people in tho
United States," continued the doctor, im
pressively, "are sufferers from affections of
tno nervous svstem. The majority of these
doubtless think thero Is nothing serious the
matter with thorn. Thoy feel languid and
dull, probably have headache and aio wake
ful at night, rising with a sense of fatigue in
the morning, but thoy are persuaded that
they will soon bo all right again. As a mat
ter of fact, they are surely drifting toward
the dreadful tortures incident to the mnny
diseases and svmptoins arising from an im
paired nervous sjstem dyspopsia, insomnia,
melancholia, neuralgia, spinal affections, in
flammation of the brain, paralysis, paresis,
locomotor ataxia, and so on. Indirectly, this
condition mav induce rheumatism, catarrh,
consumption, and many other diseases."
"Is j our treatment different from that of
the regular schools of medicine?"
"Essentially so. It is in advance of any of
tho methods now taught and practiced.
While a student I became convinced that the
great majority of diseases common to human
ity had their oncin primarily in disturbed
conditions of the nervous system. I de
veloped theories of my own and proceeded
to demonstrate their piacticability and valuo.
Por the past twenty years I have given my
entire attention to diseases of tho brain and
nervous system, pursuing my investigations
in all the leading hospitals of Europe and
America. As you are probably aware, the
uniform success of my method has excited
considerable wonder and comment. Cy it
many people have been cured who were
thought to be incurable, and thousands of
despairing sufferers have ben restored to
health, bnppiness, and lives of usefulness
after they had failed to get relief from any
Dr. Walker has a handsome suite of upart
meuts at 1411 Pennsylvania avenue, consist
ing of reception rooms, private offices, and
labratory. His office hours aro from 10 a. m. to
5 p. m., and yet he Undo time to make special
appointments with parties who Qnd those
hours inconvenient. Ho also personally con
ducts an extensive correspondence with pa
tients outside of the city, as he makes a
specialty of treatment by mall. Manj men
nre sufferers from nervous exhaustion, nerv
ous debility, impaired memory, low spirits,
irritable tempers, and the thousand and one
derangement? of tnind and body that result
from unnatural and pernicious habits con
tracted in youth through Ignorance, or later
excesses, resulting in a loss of manly power,
wrecked constitutions, nnd not infrequently
in softening of the brain, epilepsy, paralysi-,
and even dread insanity. To reach and re
claim such cases is one of Dr. Walker's aims,
and he has been the means of restoring hun
dreds of such unfortunates to health and
happiness. The doctor appears to take a
genuine interest in the good work he is do
ing, and bestows equal care and attention on
all cass that aro submitted to him.

"What luck?" the latter asked when Jack
entered, grasping his arm nervously.
Filled with his own happiness, Kingsley
had thought to make tho result known in a
manner that would wound as little as possi
ble, but the man's excited air throw him oil
his guaid and he answered, abruptly
"Its no use, Barton, the gamo is up with
Barton sank helplessly into tho nearest
chair and looked at Jack as if seeking fur
ther confirmation or denial of the statement.
"I did the best I could, old man." Jaok
went on hurriedly. "I urged your cause as
fervently as though it were my own, but sho
said 'no,' and then " he paused a moment,
then added frankly, "And then I tried my
own luck and was accopted."
Barton sprung to his feet with a gro in,
but. instead of making tho further violent
demonstration which Jack had expected and
for whu h he bad tried to be prepared, tho

"Fell over the cliff," was the verdict of tha
men who answered her appeal for help and
carried him back to tho hotel. 'He ain't tho
first one that has gone just so."
Bntthenezt morning they learned a dif
ferent story. Barton was found sittings in his
chair dead, and on the table beside him was
a letter explaining alL
"I knew I should do it some time." h
wrote. ''So long as I kept my senses I was
nil right, but these crazy spells come mora
and more often of late. I've had them all my
life; they are an inheritance. I've always
tried to keep away from him when I felt
them coming on for I bated him so at thoso
times that I knew I should kill hint Last
night the demon enmo over me when I had
him in my power and I pushed him over the
cliff. I suppose he never meast to harm me,
but I can t help hating him. He's gone now
and I shaft soon follow."
It was many days before Jack wa3 able to
give an account of the affair. '"I don't re
member much about it," he told Eve the first
time they talked the matter over. "We were
sitting on the edge there smoking, and when
we got up to come home he pushed me sud
denly with great force, and I went over.
The next thing I remember is nearing your
voice. Don't cry. Eve," he added, as sha
mournfully pressed the empty sleeve from
which h ii right arm was gone. "Poor Bar
ton' e can't blam him for disliking me.
Lrt us be happy. Eve, for we havo each,
other." Chicago Sews.
