One of theYbest known traveling men

remarked, alsa crack shot -with but
few equals anywhere at clay pigeons
or live birds. i$ Mr. F. JL Faurote. He
represents the Ju Pont Powder com
pany, one of the oldest powder con
cerns in the UnRU States. Mr. Fau
rote's home is at JOl McKinney ave

While in Houston Mfc aurote intro
dnced himself to the "Plant Juice" dem
onstrator at Route's drugstore by say
ing "I don't txpeci you remember me. 1
was in here about ten days a,, and
bought a bottle of your ".riant Juice."
My trouble was with my liver and
stomach, resulting in constipation, in
digestion and finally in rheumatism.
I am always on the road an? do not
have time to be sick. I tritd every
thing I could hear of, because no man
who has to meet the public and trans
act business can do himself Justice if
his stomach and liver are wrong. I
started to use your "Plant Juice' and
am at it stilL I carry a bottle in my
case. It was just the thine I needed,
right from the start. It has taken
every bit of rheumatism out of me.
My bowels are acting natnral and nor
mal not as they do after a phjslc, but
just natural. Anyone who tag suf
fered from constipation knows what
that means. My stomach is in better
shape than it has been for years. 1
tell you I feel like a 2-year-old. I tell
everyone who asks me what I found
that helps me 'Plant Juice.' It is a
pleasure to recommend it."

"I thought I would liven them up
with some little description of the way
people did in the world where I lived,
but they were bored to death. What
they wanted to talk about was Major

paid the Widow Smith to build that
new hen house she put up three years
after the dry spell.
"After I had been home a week I
couldn't get a long breath to save my

her bedroom too mad to trust herself
to come out for half a day, and I de

mother I'd come soon again, and came

AY 17. I have at last learned
hat women mean when they
say one can't do thus and so
"with children In the house," and one
of the impossibilities where there arc
children is to chonicle faithfully all
that happens in a diary.
We have an early tea, a meal de
signed solely for infantile stomachs,
and I find my own thriving on it, and
after tea there come an hour when I
romn with the children, serificing all
my dignity to their tyranny and whims,
and enjoying it as I have enjoyed few

for every old acquaintance with gob

often of little things I did when I was

and fell off into the pond I have
told that 50 times, and if I vary as
much as a word they make me begin
The "VUipxIng Scene.
It happened one warm day in June

childhood and count the buttons, and

bing the place where the blows had
fallen and the other wiping my tears
They particularly enjoy this story

is more fickle, just as often forgets.
I have noticed that Elizabeth offers
up a strange petition concerning me.
"Keep uncle Max from doing the
wrong thing,'' she always says at the
close of her prayer, and ')ue night
when she had said it and climbed on
my knees for a final hug, I said, "Why
do you ask that for uncle Max. Honey.

She fixed on me those big' brown eyes
that remind me so much of poor
Mary's, and said:
"Aunt Mary said little children's
prayers went straight to heaven, and
sometimes big folks' prayers didn't,
and she said I must ask that for her

that there is a wrong thing I am

And that is, go back to Josephine!
I think of her constantly, and the
harder I fight against her the greater
my longing for her.
When I hold the children in my
arms I think of Josephine. When
Manette's little golden curls brush
against my face I long for Josephine.
When i kiss the children I am re
minded of her lips and the wild joy
I would know If I would only put my
anger aside and hold out my arms to
I have seen her again. I had told
Thompson to drive with the children
to a certain spot in the park wher
the dandelions grow thickest and to
wait for me there. It was the place
where Josephine passed me a week
before, when she was in the car with
I do not know that this is the rea
son I asked lum to wait for me there,
though it mi ant something to me to
go nack wheif J had seen her, and try
to live over that brief meeting again.
I know that I remembered there was
where Manette hid so much fun pick
ing t'lf tlowtl?,
"lou will wait lor uat thm.. I told
him, and I arranged to corns up from simple and sane emotion easy to con
town on a car. and meet him. Richards,
tne nurse, was engaged lor the after
noon, and I was sure Thompson would
see no danger befall the babies for
that brief ride.
I had left the office unusually de
pressed. Everything was all right In
a business way. Everything always
is. It seems to me I have never made
as much money in twice the time as I
have made since I lost Josephine, and
no longer have the incentive of pro
viding for her.
T had money enough for the children
and myself. Why not quit the game,
take the babies and their nurse and
go abroad? Perhaps, I thought. I
could get away from this fever of un
rest if I were amid new scenes.
It was a foolish notion, No one can
run a-aay from an infatuation fori a
woman. I know that The only way
to recover from such Infatuation is to
marry the woman.
This struck me as such a grim
remedy that I laughed out loud, and
was still smiling at my folly when I
jumped off the car, entered the park,
turned a corner of shrubbery and trees
and saw Josephine.
Thompson had taken the children to
the place I dlretced, and was sitting in
the carriage a little way up the road.
Elizabeth sat at one end of a park
bench, lonely and aloof, and at the
other end sat Josephine with Manette
on her lap.
There was a time when sucn a picture
would have given me the wildest de
light. Always during our brief en
gagement I had dared to picture the
time when the greatest joy that can
come to a home would come to ours.
The dream of JoseDhlne with a child
In her arms had been the sweetest, and
most sacred dream I had ever known.
But I remembered none of this when
I saw her with arms around Manette.
I remembered only that when the Tom
Jones little chap died, and I went to
her for sympathy, she had said sho
I remembered also that much Jose
phine does is with an end in view. I
seemed to have a clearer vision, and
