What is lackinsr is truth
If there were absolute truth
on the one hand and absolute
confidence on the other, it
wouldn't be necessary for the
makers of Dr. Sage's Catarrh
Remedy to back up a plain
statement of fact by a $500
They say "If we can't
cure you ( make it personal,
please,) of catarrh in the head,
in any form or stage, we'll pay
you S500 fcr your trouble in
making the trial."
"An advertising fake," you
Funny, isn't it, how some
people prefer sickness to
health when the remedy is
positive and the guarantee
Wise men don't put money
back of " fakes."
And " faking " doesn't pay.
Magical little granules

larger than mustard seeds,

yet mild in operation. The

not feel so free. I need not particular
ize, but permit me to say that I have
made a decision. I shall make no claims

that your inheritance is conditional?"
"I beg yon not to think so. The last
thing that grandpa would have wished
is that we should marry" herlovelT
complexion turned paler 6till; she helu
her proud head aloft, the full lips trem
bled and her soft, dark eyes met her
companion's without wavering "unless
we liked each other."
"It would be impossible for us even to
know whether we liked each other or
not, Miss Dane, meeting under such pre
arranged conditions. You are very

"You might make a fatal mistaka It
is far better that we each retain our free

me to the property."
"The conditions are too severe," she
said with irony.
'Pardon me." They looked at each
other. "You are the most beautiful
woman I have ever known," he re
"But," she interposed, "I felt it from
the first you are not free."
"I am free," Miss Dane. "It is not of
myself I .am thinking, but of you, I
mnst spare yon the embarrassment of
this position, and to do this I must Wave
you at once to-night."
"I shall not attempt to influence yon,"
she said coldly, "further than to" say
that the only train making connections
for the north leaves Queenstown at
noon, and I should be glad to have you
remain till morning."
"Under the circumstances I will ac
cept your invitation with gratitude," he
Vincent continued his walk alone after
visiting Gideon Dane's grave, Miss Dane
excusing herself and returning to the
house. He ate his supper also in solitary
state with Miss Chatworth, who invited
him to play oribbage afterward. At 10
o'clock he ventured to ask if Gwendoline
were not at home. Miss Chatworth
opened her mild eyes and explained that
Miss Dane had ridden to Qneenstown
during the afternoon, and would not re
Nirn till morning.
"She means to avoid seeing me again,"
thought Vincent, with annoyance, and
strange to say the annoyance was keener
than that he felt in the determination to
give up a nic property to which he had
so unexpectedly acquired a title.
He was wrong, however, in regard to
Gwendoline's intention. The following
morning was rainy, and when he de
scended to the breakfast room Miss Dane
was standing Iwfore the fire. In her new
black gown, with the white honnd stand
ing close beside her, she looked imperi
ally calm and handsomer than ever. .
Vincent's own fine face brightened. "I
was afraid you did not mean to see me
agaiu," he said frankly. "I feared you
were disgusted with yonr new found
"You were wrong," she said gravely.
"I went to Qneenstown in your interest.
I have destroyed the will. As the only"
surviving meml)ers of the Dane family
the property l'longs to ns jointly by
law. As for the few bequests, I thought
you would not object to carrying out
grandpa's wishes. For the rest, we
stand as though the will had never been
"You have destroyed the will:" ex
claimtl Vincent, "but"
"What is done can't be undone," she
"And what shall you do now?" he
asked with uncontrollable surprise.
"If it seems to you worth while, I
shall advise yon to stay and get the
property appraised and things in shape.
I should like to keep the place, if there
is any way of arranging it."
"But surely you will not livo here.
You must see the world."
"Oh. I have seen it the world of Lon
don and Paris and Washington. I have
been grown up these five years."
Vincent gave up his proposed journey
for that day. He set to work with
Gwendoline examining accounts. The
morning piissed and other mornings in
the same fashion. In the afternoon the
thoroughbred horses were brought to
the door and he and Miss Dane, followed
by a party of dogs, went galloping over
