Four Years on Crutches.
For fifteen years I was afflicted with rhen
mutism, four yearsof which I wascompelled
to go on crutches. Words are Inadequate to
express the suffering I endured during that
time. During these fifteen years of exis
tence (it was not living), I tried every known
riitnedy without receiving any benefit. I
finally began on Swift's Specific (8. S. 8.),
w hich from the first gave me relief, and to
day I am enjoying the best of hialth,and am
a well mn. I candidly believe that 8. 8. 8.
Is the best biood purifier on the market to
day. J. b. TA r LOH, Cuba, Mo.

I'rofessor Hale, llie man who taught the
children of llie rich people uptown how
lie looked lired and worried aa if the
harmony of the day hud jangled all out
of tune All at once he. too. heard the
voice, and now it u;is singing:
Tis ttu-n I drtiss up in my bisL,
And walk oui with iii.v Sully:
Sin is tbu ilui'lin of my heart.
And she lives down III our alloy
The grave prol'essoi seemed suddenly
to forget his hurry lie stopped stock
"By jovo! What a voice!' he ejacu
lated, as the lone sank In a plaintive,
vihrating minor that thrilled through
the murky atmosphere tike a hurst of
sunshine. And then he went in pursuit
of tho voice
In a two wheeled huckster's cart,
which had heen disabled and deserted,
stood a little girl about 9'yuars old. She
had 011 a red calico dress. It was pretty
dirty, hut apparently the little girl
thought she was dressed up.
She had washed her face back as far
as her ears, so that he could see that she
was very pretty Her skin was a clear
olive. Her eyes were big anil bright and
hrown. Her hair was almost the color
of mahogany and hung in thick, tangled
curls down below her waist.
She wore no stockings, but on her
feet was a pair of blue satin boots, with
tassels at the top, and little pointed heels,
such as the chorus girls in the opera
She was standing with her head
thrown back, her little hands clasped
tightly across her chest, singing with all
her might. Around her were grouped
about a dozen little gamins of tho alley,
who, if not appreciative listeners, were
very enthusiastic ones.
When the professor appeared the en
tertainment stopped and the little singer
looked as nhy and as confused as if she
had been caught doing something
lint the professor did not notice her
confusion. He pushed his way right
through the dirty, 'sticky little group
and up to tlu; side of the cart.
"What is your name?" be asked eager
ly, "and where do you live?"
Shyly twisting her lingers into the
folds of her red skirt, the little girl an
swered, in a confused way:
".My name is Alice Flynii. and I live
down there," nodding her head towarda
"Who tatighl you to sing?"
'Nobody. 1 alwavs knowed how,'
answered the little one. with a side look
at her companions.
"Whom do you live with?" was the pro
fessor's ne.t question
"CJran'ma," answered Alice.
"Will yon take me to see your grand
mother?" asked the professor, suddenly.
Instead of answering him Alice looked
at her audience and giggled. Professor
Hale evidently knew how to gain his
point, for, taking a silver coin from his
pocket, he said:
"I'll give you this if you'll take me to
your grandmother. Will you go now?"
"Oh, won't I, just!" exclaimed Alice,
and she scrambled over the wheel of the
cart. "Come right this way."
The professor gingerly picked his way
down the dirty steps into the dingy
cellar which Alice called home. Sitting
in an old rocking chair, smoking a rank
smelling pipe, was a very old voinan.
She was so nearly blind that she didn't
notice at tirst that Alice had company
She heard the footsteps, and began:
"1 think it's time ye was a-gettin
home, you good-for-nothin' little trollop
An' if ye ain't brought the price o' a sup
0' tay anil a bit o' bacon it will be th
worse for ye."
"I've brought a gentleman with me,"
said Alice, "lie wanted to come and
see you, and here's a quarter for your tea
and bacon lie give it to me for bring
The old woman lifted her shaking
head and looked at the professor with
watery, bloodshot eyes The professor
didn't waste any words
"Madam," he said, "this little girl has
a wonderful voice. I want to take her
home and teach her to sing. Are you
willing that she should go?"
"And what would I he doin' widout
her?" whined the old woman. "And me
wi' the rheuiuati. that bad I can't be
pi 1 tt i 11' me foot to the Hoor."
"Well." said the professor, "here's a
$3 bill that I'll give you. And I'll send
you that amount each week if you will
let me have tho little girl."
The old woman hesitated a little at
first, thinking that perhaps the profes
sor would increase his olfer But when
she saw that he had no such intention
she accepted eagerly enough And then
the gentleman took Alice by the hand
and led heraway, while the grandmother
sat mumbling over the crisp new green
back, without ho much as giving her a
word of farewell
' Alice began to be frightened She
commenced to cry and kept on crying,
even when the car stopped and the pro
fessor led her up to the front of a beau
tiful house looking right olf on the park.
She still cried and begged him to let
her go back to her miserable alley and
her wretched old grandmother. She
didn't feel any better when she got in
side of the hall and stood on the soft
carpet among the pretty lightsome flow
ers. You see she wasn't used to it.
The professor stepped to the foot of the
stairs and called:
"Come down here, Kitty. I want you."
And Kitty came, a beautiful little yellow
haired fairy, all in ribbons and lace, who
cried, as she ran downstairs:
The New UlNcovery.

bors talking abo-jt it. You mayyourself

"Oh, papa, where did you get that

swered the professor, with a twinkle in

"What pretty hair you've got; and. oh
my! what lovely boots! Where did you
Alice waa all t ight now She wasn't
afraid any more and she answered very
promptly and confidentially
"1 bought -em of the ragman for ri
cent, and 1 got this dresH from the rag
man, loo. Ain't it a daisy?"
In a very lew minutes the little girls
were chatting away as if they had
known each other always And then
I'rofessor Hale told his daughter to go
and call her nurse. When she appeared
'Mary, you may take this little girl
upstairs and give her a bath, and 1 1 rest
her in some ot Miss Kitty's clothes To
morrow you may go out and see about
getting her some clothes of her own, and
you may fix up the little room next to
yours for her to sleep in. She is going
to stay with us for a while."
It was night in the gay city of Paris
and the grand opera house was all ablaze
with a thousand lights.
Up and down through the gilded foyer
gay couples were walking, and as they
walked they talked of the young girl who
was to sing that night
"They say she is very beautiful," said
one, "and that she sings like all the birds
in the forest,"
"She's young," said another, "only 15.
the bills say. And yet she has studied
under all the masters, and they pro
nounced her .vonderful."
I am sure you have guessed by this
lime that tho singer was no other than
our little girl of the alley. Alice Flynn
It was a daring thing to bring her out in
the gay capit il before all the critics, but
Professor Hale was a man who dared
He proved that when ho first took charge
At last it was time for her to appear.
She came forward almost as timidly as
she first entered the great house on Kilty-ninth
street in New York.
The hundreds of people, the dazzling
lights, the sudden burst of applause and
the hush of expectation which followed
It were all so confusing that Alico was
Her first impulse was to turn and run.
but then she remembered what Professor
Hale had said to her:
"I am looking forward to the greatest
triumph of my life to-night. You must
not disappoint me."
He was standing in llie Hies now,
breathlessly watching her, and Alice said
to herself. desperately, "I must not fail."
And she did not. Her voice trembled
a little at first, and the people began to
look nt each other significantly
And then Hut who could describe
that song? When she ceased the great
audience sat silent and in tears
Then from a thousand lips came the
"Bravo! bravo! (.'ail her back! Encore!
When Alice came forward the second
lime she found herself confronted by a
barricade of roses, which her enthusias
tic audience had piled in front of the
She never knew what made her do it
She hadn't thought of the old song for
years. But it came to her now, and
without any assistance from the orches
tra si 10 saug:
Of all the d.-iys that's In the week.
I dearly love but one day.
And that's the day that eoines betwixt
A Saturday and Monday
The air was still quivering with the
homely pathos of her pathetic minor
key when from the pit there came a
startled cry of "Fire! Tho wings are on
Of course there was a stampede. Some
one sprang from the right of the stage
and seized Alice's arm.
"Come this way There's a solid wall
of fire on the other side. It started in
the green room and crept around to the
"But Mr. Hale is there." said Alice,
"Well, he'll have to stay there, then,"
said the man, "for nobody can get at
him now." Ue still attempted to drag
"But some one must get at him I
will not go anil leave him here "
"I tell you it is madness." cried the
man. "It's sure death to go near that
"Then I'll stay and die with 10111," said
Then, with a presence of mind that
was wonderful, she ran to the dressing
room, seized a long woolen cloak, on
which she emptied the contents of the
Bilver ice pitcher, and wrapping herself
in it, she plunged straight through the
wall of fire.
Mr. Hale was not where she thought
She ran about through the stilling smoke,
but could not find him. The man who
tried to hold her back stood in the center
of the stage, dazed
Some one ran up and seized him by the
shoulders, asking in a frightened voice-
"Where is she? Where is Alice?"
It was Professor Hale He had escaped
from the other side.
Dumb with astonishment and terror
the man pointed toward the Hies, which
wero now a mass of Ibuiie.
"Why did you let her go in there?"
'She thought you were there and she
went to save you." was the answer.
The professor, before the other could
prevent him, sprang in after her.
An instant later he dragged her out on
the stage. Streams of water began to
play over the flames, and soon the two
men were able to make their way out to
the street, carrying A lice between them.
In spite of the long cloak the lire had
dealt cruelly with her. For several min
utes she showed no sign of life. Then
she opened her eyes and made an effort
to lift her head.
The professor raised her tenderly up
in his arms. She looked into his eyes
pleadingly for a momentand then a mist
seemed to gather. She lifted her right
hand with a pathetic little gesture and
faintly, tremulously, but sweet and plain
tive as ever came the strain:
