deluded the unhappy victim of
catarrh in the head. He's been
told that it can't bo cured. Don't
you believe it. It can be, and it
is no matter how bad or of how
long standing. It has been done
for thousands by Dr. Sage's Ca
tarrh Remedy. Other so-called
remedies may palliate for a time ;
this cures for all time. By its mild,
soothing, cleansing and healing
properties, it conquers the worst
cases. Its makers off?r, in good
faith, a reward of $500 for a case
of catarrh which they cannot cure.
They are able to pay h. Are you
abla to take it?
The symptoms of ;atarrh are,
headache, obstruction cf nose, dis
charges falling into throat, some
times profuse, watery, and acrid, at
others, thick, tenacious, mucous,
purulent, bloody, putrid and offen
sive ; eyes weak, ring ng in cars,
deafness; offensive breath; smell
and taste impaired, r.ni general
debility. Only a few 'of these
symptoms likely to bn present at
once. Thousands of cases termi
nate in Consumption ar.d end in the
grave, without ever having mani
fested all these symptoms. Dr.
Sage's Remedy cures the worst
cases. 00 cents, by druggists.

E. ST. JOHN. JOHN SEBASTIAN,
'GenTafenagw. GenT Tkt d PSBs. Agt,
'well both Welsh and Schonberg
told me I was bound to be convicted!
Everything iinted to my being Corn
Brents slugger, though I svearto Go,l
I never left the barracks that night.
They Raul if I didn't get awav before the
court tried me I might get several years
le, prison at harii bor. and worse
still if he didn't recover. Welsh and
Sohonberg both said that there was no
show for me, the evidence was so clear
even to the red pepper in the pockets'
borne scoundrel put it there, and wore
my things, too. Welsh got put into the
guard room, purposelv, ojposite my cell
and threw a stone with a string thron-h
the grating, and I hauled on it and got
a letter from him and Schonberg tcllin"
me how to escape. Tlu-re were saws
and .allow in the package I drew in, and
behonberg wius down in the bottom with
a buggy artcr I got out, and he drove
me nearly all night around bv way of
Barclay to the other road, and sent me
uy rail to Omaha, where he promised
that plenty of money would erne to me
but no money came at all, and I was
recognized and arrested by the police."
"Had you any idea that there were
other reasons for getting you to desert
than the one given?"
Lawler lxjnnced up and objected to
Ix.th question and answer; but Ix.th were
"I hadn't then,' was the sullen re
fly; "Ira not so sure now. That Jew
got me to go lecanso I accused him of
being a r e iver of stolen propertv. It
was to him Welsh gave th-i pap."rs he

li!auve!t' quarters. I vi ::t there with
him one night after taps when the lieu
tenant was tft-f r of tho guard, and
Schonberg gave Welsh ton dollars and
me live to keep mum. After that Wel-h
tegau to run with chonlorg ntirvly
and turn against mo, and it was throtigjj
him that I was always getting into trou
ble." In vain Lawler propounded questions
tending to show his witness, thus as
sailed, in a letter light; but the more ha
examined the more damaging was (iosn's
testimony. At last the witness si. .uched
out under escort of a sentinel.
But a greater sensation still was await
ing the patient listeners in the court
room. The next man to enter, leaning
heavily on the arm of the levspiul stew
ard, and accompanied by Dr. Ingersoll,
was Corp. Brent, looking white and
teeble, but very calm and self possess.
-Give your full name, rank and regi
ment."' said the judge advocate, without
"The name under which I enlisted is
Malcolm Brent, coq)oral Corapunv C,
-The court will note, I tm.-t, the sin
gular character of the witnesses intro
duce.! by the accused," said Lawler
promptly. -The last, by his own ad
mission, is a thief and a deserter whom
Welsh very properly essayed to cut looso
from on discovering his real character;
and now wo have a second who plainly
intimates thai the name he gives is not
"It is the one by which he is known to
military law all the same, CoL Lawler.
Please to proceed," said CoL Grace testily.
"You know the accused, I presume, or
he would not have called upon you?" was
Lawler's snapping query of the witness.
'Only as a soldier knows an officer
whom he has every reason to respect. I
have never exchanged a word with the
gentleman, but I recognize him as Lieut.
Hearn, of the Eleventh cavalry."
Again there was a ripple of applause
in the crowded court, which brought
Lawler, angry and protesting, to his feet.
Silence restored, he presently read aloud
the next question from a slip handed
him by Mr. Hearn. which he slowly
pasted on the sheet before him:
"What do you know with regard to
the amounts charged against the accused
on the books presented before this court
and alleged to le unpaid?"
"I know that they were paid lmig ago.
I heard the story of th? whole transac
tion fron the bps of Capt. Rawlins him
self." "Hearsay evidence," promptly inter
rupted the judge advocate, rapping on
:Br.t Schonberg's written acknowl
edgment and this letter of Capt. Raw
lins will not be so considered," answered
the witness respectfully, and landing
forward he placed on th? judge advo
cate's table a little package of papers.
The court room was hushed. Even the
pencils of the corrcpondents were ar
rested. Every eye in all the throng was
on the pale face of the young corioral.
Memliers of the court had whirled around
in their chairs so as to look full ujKm
the new witness. Old Keuyon, with
lifted spectacles, brimming over with
eagerne.-s and excitement, was fidgeting
on his chair. Pretty Mrs. Lane, all
smiles, was keeping her fan in lively -et
noiseless play. Georgia Marshall's heav
ily fringed lids were drooping over her
downcast eyes: but th soft, summer
fabric of her dress rose nnd fell upon
her bosom like the billows of an unquiet
sea. She was seated where every word
of the witness could reach her ears, but
no longer so near the little table where
sat the calm young soldier whose trial
had nearly reached an end. There was
no longer need of counsel for the ac
cused; yet liis eyes time and again
glanced yearningly at her.
Lawler was the first to srieak. He
dandled the papers contemptuously as
he glanced them over:
"These are of no earthly account
mere forgeries possibly. One only pur
ports to be a duplicate, anyhow."
"Duplicate of what, sir? The court
will be glad to look at those papers when
you are througb with them." said Col.
"I obji?ct to their introduction as evi
dence, in any event, and protest against
their admission here. What possible
business can a corporal of infantry be
having with the private papers of a de
ceased officer, anyway? Where did you
know the late Capt. Rawlins even sup
posing that he did write that letter?"
"Any question on that score the court
may choose to ask I will answer," was
the reply, with quiet self possession.
"Bat I can swear to the genuineness of
Capt. Thorp had already possessed
himself of the duplicate receipt, ami
after a brief glance tossed it over to the
"Schonberg, without a doubt." he
Meantime, old Grace had received and
was conning over the" other, which he
suddenly lowered and looked in amaze
at the calm face of the witness, then
handed it to Maitland, who read, started,
and gazed too.
"I know tliis hand, sir, I know it as
that of an old and valned friend," said
Maitland. with lips that quivered er
ceptil.ly. -I could almost swear to its
genuineness myself. It is probably one
-f the last letters the dear old fellow
ever wrote, and it is to his W at col
leg. Here. Thorp, you read it aloud."
And. though Lawler would have pro
tested, protest was useless. Thorp
arose, clicking his heels together as
though on drill, nnd in a voice that was
audible all over the big room, read:
