Swift's Specille (S. 8. 8.) cnred my little
boy of hereditary scrofula, which broke out
all over his lace. For a year he had suffered,
and I had given up all hopes of his recovery,
when at length I decided to use S. S. S. Af
ter using a few bottles he was entirely cured.
Not a symptom now remaius of the disease.
This was three years ago.
11U3. T. L. MATHEU3, Mathersville, Miss.
In the early part of last year I had a vio
lent Attack of rheumatism, from which 1
was confined to my bed for over three months
and at times was unable to turn myself in
bed, or even raise the rover. A nurse had to
be in constant attendance dny and night. I
was so feeble that what little nourishment I
took had to be given me with a ponn. Af
ter calling in the best local physicians, and
trying all other medicines without receiving
any benefit, I was induced by friends to try
Swift's Specific (S. S. 8.) I discontinued all
other medicines, and took a con rue of 8. S. S.
thirteen small bottles, which affected a com
plete and permanent cure.

"Perhaps," he said, gloomily, "but 1

Just then a bell rang and L'nelo Joshua

less, when a week passed by without
any news of hi in and 1 rather missed
him, too, I must admit. But judge of
my horror when, one evening, a messen

sealed with black wax and wearing a
mourning border an inch wide, and
opening it I read these words:
"MtssoR Madamk The inclosed hav

in the Hudson river, I inclose it to your
address, imagining that it may interest
you The City Coroner."
Tremblingly 1 tore open an envelope
which was inclosed and read this:
"Dear Hosina Yes, standing on the

wept with me over the "poor young

that I was not to blame, fur "nobody

and instanced one Patrick O'Rourke,
who threatened to dynamite himself the

I did not tell him what had caused my
illness, and he insisted upon it that 1
hud been "stulling myself with sweets'
in his absence. He brought home with
him a very sardonic old gentleman, who
looked like the portraits of Voltaire, and
they had a very sociable time of it in the
dining room over cards and punch, and
evidently did not want me.
As for the old gentleman, his veif

One evening Nora had placed me In a

me alone for a while, and 1 think 1 had
dozed off. when, opening my eyes. 1 be
came aware that a figure stood before
me. It was motionless. Its arms cross
ed on its breast, its eyes rolled up, but
by the moonlight 1 saw the face of my
unhappy adorer Ixmgfellow Tibbs. He
had declared that be would haunt me,
and here he was. I should doubtless lie
tormented by his reproachful spirit for
the rest of my days, or rather, nights.
It was simply awful. I uttered a long
shriek and put out my hands to ward
the specter off.
They were caught in two of solid flesh
and blood. The figure dropped to its
knees before me This was no ghost.
It was Longfellow Tibbs in proper per
son, very much alive indeed.
"Forgive me!" he sighed. "Angel of
my soul, forgive me! It was all a ruse

my death you have withered like a rose
smitten by the wintcry blasts. Cheer
up cheer up, my angel! Your Long
fellow lives and still adores you."
At these words my indignation got the
better of me. I arose to my feet and
looked at him scornfully.
"Mr. Tibbs," said 1. "if I had been as
fond of you as you pretend you are of
me. 1 would not could not like you
after what you have dune; and 1 care
nothing for you nothing!"
Longfellow Tibbs folded his arms and
regarded me tragically.
"There is but one explanation of this
Insensibility," he said "you love an
other," As he spoke a sudden thought occurred
to me. I resolved to pay him back in
his own coin. I bowed my head in si
lence. "Y'ou are betrothed to another?" cried
I bowed again.
"His name? that 1 may wreak ven
geance upon bis head!" demanded Mr.
"You may see him if you like," I said.
I arose, finding my strength quite mi
raculously restored to me, and crossed
the room softly, beckoning him to fol
low. The house was an old fashioned one of
the double sort, ami at the back of the
hall was a curious little window that
gave light to the kitchen stairs. Beside
this window 1 paused. It opened into
the large dining room. At the table in
the center of the apartment sat Uncle
Joshua and his ancient friend, whose
head was as bald as a billiard ball, and
who had lost every tooth in his head.
Without a word, I pointed to this indi
vidual. "He!" gasped Longfellow.
"No one else," said 1.
"FalBe one, you have sold yourself for
gold!" said Mr. Tibbs.
1 did not deny the impeachment. Mr.
Tibbs folded bis arms and stalked toward
the front door.
"Adieu," said he.
"Good-bye, Mr. Tibbs," said 1.
"I dreamed," said Mr. Tibba, "that
woman was to be won by love. I find
that wealth is the only talisman. No
matter. Let him beware my ven
geance!' I never saw him again, but shortly af
