tho citbhioucd seat as tho carriago left

stopped In the midst of n sentence, re
proaching himself for his lack of self

ments; then she said, with her old
"Now w'e've made up haven't we?
nnd you nro just as nlco ns you wero
that night, so please may my dog run
a littlo on the snow?"
"Of course," he bald, and set free tho
hmall nnlm.il, who darted after birds,
barking joyously. Among tho dis
comforts of having nn erratic mistress
were long confinement in cold dark
cars and surreptltiouH journcyings un
der shawls and In baskets; so In these
latter nays of sudden journeys and im
prisonment Kkyo had grown to prize
his hours of freedom, l'crhaps In his
heart, though, he willingly endured
nights In the baggage-car for the joy
ofbolng rid of that red-faced, black
eyed something who slept so much and
whom ho must never waken with a
hnppy bark or jump. How many
times on account of that red-faced
thing who cried had his darling's aunt
scouted him out of doors with a broom,
saying: "Sent, you dogl there, you'vo
waked tho baby again." Now his dear
mistress was like her old self, and he,
Skyc, though ho never would tell, had
seen Miss Hannah and that baby slink
ing away from the house in Maine like
criminals, and ho had never noticed
their departure by one small bark, for
fear they might return.
"I am very hungry," said Mrs. Mlnny
as the carriage turned back to the city,
"and, as my dog is hungry too, it would
be a good idea for you to take us to n
private room in some restaurant, where
we can feed Sieve on the carpet when
tho waiter Is out."
There was nothing to do, of coursV',
but to ncccde to this demand; the very
fact thnt she was hungry appealed to
Oliver's generous heart. Ho thought,
however, ns they went up tho stairs to
a cozy prlvato supper room, this would
sound unpleasantly to a jury. He
could even fancy tho attorney for tho
prosecution's question: "Did you, Mr.
Oliver, think this proceeding a proper
ono? Does society consider It discreet
for nn unmarried man to take a young
married lady to such a place in tho ab
sence of her husband?'' etc. Still, Mrs.
Minny enjoyed everj'thing so much,
Oliver forgot his fears, and was merry
enough In his way. The dog, gorged
with food, showed off his most amus
ing tricks, which Mrs. Mlnny admitted
he never would do before when Gran
gers were present,
"I think ho Is really getting fond of
you," sho said, tenderly.
Oliver, aware of the silliness of It, but
pleased at that trustful glance, said he
lie left Mrs. Mlnny at a hotel, regis
tering her name nnd ordering a good
room for her, then with almost a benbo
of relief walked to another hotel, a
long distance away. He hoped tho spy
might bo following: onco or twice ho
looked behind, but there seemed no
one. At his hotel a telegram awaited
him. It was from a clerk in his ofllec:
"Dr Achorn telegraphed from Pueblo to you
In Denver. 'Henri do ResUud died this morn
ing at tho lnsano asylum. Tuncral tn Denver.'
I telegraphed blm you wore In Chicago."
A second telegram way brought Oli
ver just as he was going to bed; It was
from Dr. John:
"Toll Mra. do Itestaud. They neod not como
on too lato for fuacraL Was unconscious,
loft no message. Glad you nro with them.
Death had released tho suit for di
vorce; it would never bo brought, aiid
tho vengeance of n-crazed brain was
over. With a quick beat of his heart
Oliver realized Mrs. Mlnny was free nt
last; perhaps she could learn to care
for him some day with a swift repul
sion as ho thought of the dead far
across the plains. Yet for onco death
had been kind to the living, and who
was there to mourn Henri do Restaud?
His mother died In his boyhood, his
father drove him from Franco, his wife
hated and feared him, his child would
never see his face, aud his (ervnnts
were only kept by lavish payments.
So men may make a mockery of living,
n shame of days, may be blots on this
fair earth, useless in a useful world,
may cause but pain and sadness, and
go into eternity more frlcndloss, more
wretched in their sclMuillcted degra
dation, than tho outcast dog Blinking
through tho alleys of a city.
Mrs. Mlnny was oddly pale and quiet
when Oliver met her in the hotel par
lor. Sho looked as if the had not slept;
and his heart throbbed at the pain ho
had caused her. Of course she had
worried about her btrango position and
tho trouble in Denver on account of It.
He could toll her nt least the fear of
tho divorce was over. Denth had set
tled the case. Yet it wns hard to 'toll
her of thnt death. Ho hesitated, and
talked of the weather.
"It is always horrid In Chicago," she
said, mournfully. "I shall hate this
hotel, too; they would not let mo havo
Skyc in my room; thoy put him In some
cellar, and ho was not like himself
when I took him for a little walk be
fore you came."
Oliver had a bunch of roses ha had
bought for her on his way, but it
becmed even heartless to offer them to
such an nClictcd being. Howerer, ho
sat down beside her on the sofa and laid
the llowerb on her lap.
"Thank you," sho said, mournfully,
"I don't think I ought to wear them.
Tho chambermaid asked mo if I was" a
Tho gloom settled on Oliver now.
"Sho was Impudent," he said, cross
ly. "You see how impossible it is for
a young lady to jro to hotels alone."
"Well, you didn't offer to come with
mc," sho sighed; "you even went to
another hotel. Oh, I kuoul I looked
or you In tho register."
"You were down In tho ofllce?"
"I had to go down for my clog and to
tell them how mean they were," Mrs.
Mlnuy said, wearily "Aid you don't
know what an nwfnl great ghostly
room they gave mc, full of closets and;
wardrobes and places for pcoplo toj
hide. I burned the gas all night and'
I had dreadful dreams." Sho bowed'
her head over tho flowers and sighed
ngaln. "Hoses mako mo think of
funerals; do they you?"
"I nm sorry I troubled you with
them," Oliver said, stiffly.
"Sow you are cross, and you'vo got
that little wrinkle on yor.r forehead."
She looked at him thoughtfully.
"When you arc smiling I think you aro
tho kindest friend In tho world. I
guess I am cross myself. Do you know,
I dreamed Henri came Into that room
last night. The bathroom hnd a lit
tle window looking Into tho room, and
I dreamed he looked through this al
mc nnd made dreadful faces. He used
to frighten me that way once" she
blushed nnd hung her head then, and
was silent n moment "when wo wero
first married, you know. He'd wake
me up by staring at me testing the
power of the eye, he called it, I was
nfrald, anyway, because my mother
had just died, and I had never seen a
dead person before. I can see her yet
In her coffin, so dreadfully waxen nnd
strange. Henri swore once over the
Itlblc that if he died first he would
come back and haunt me. After that
dream I couldn't sleep, but lay bhlver
ing with fear until daylight. I must
go away from here to-day. Another
night In that room would frighten mo
She trembled so nt the thought, Oli
ver felt his task doubly difficult.
"Don't you think," he asked, gently,
"that those fears are very childish?"
"Of course," she said, bricfly,"I know
I nm not sensible; you, Aunt Hannah
and Dr. John call me frivolous; yet I
hnvo tried to do right, I came hereon
my way to save your good name, and I

Caldwell, N.J., March 10.1805. (Special.)
Slnco ono of our prominent citizens sutforeil
so terribly from tobacco trnnens, has mudo
known his frightful experience in behalf of
Immunity, tho hulits hero mc making tobne-ro-unlnp
husbands' lives mUcrnhle with
their cntreutlvs to at onco quit tobacco
Tho written statement of S. J. Gould is
attracting wldo-sprcnd nttentlon When In
terviewed to-night he suld: "I commenced
using tob.icco at thirteen, I nm now forty
nine; so, for thirty-six jears I chewed,
smoked, snuffed nnd rubbed snuff.
In tho morning I chewed bofore I put my
pants ou, una for u long tlmo I used two
ounces of chewing and eight ounces of
smoking a day Sumetimcs I had a chew
In both checks and a pipe tn my mouth at
once. Ten years ago I quit drinking whisky.
I tried to stop tobacco tlmo and ncain, hut
could not. Jly nerves craved nicotine and I
fed them, till my skin turned a tobacco
brown, cold, sticky perspiration ooied from
my skin, and trickled down iuybnckuttio
least exertion orexcltemcnt. My nerve vigor
and my life was beiugslowly sapped. I mado
up my mind that I had to quit tobacco or
die. On October 1 1 stopped, und for threo
days I suffered tho tortures of the damned.
Ou tho third duy I got so bad that my part
ner nccused mo of being drunk. I said, 'No,
I have qulttobai'co. 'KorGod'ssake, man,'
ho said, offering me his tobacco box, 'tako a
chew; you will go wild,' and I was wild.
Tobacco was foreed Into me and I was taken
homedazed. I saw double and my memory
was beyond control, but I still knew how
to chew and smoke, which I did idl day un
til towards night, when my system got
totuxco-soaked again. Tho next morning I
looked nnd felt as though I had been through
ft long spell of sickness. I gavo up in de
spair, as I thought tlmt I could not cure my
self. Now, for suffering humanity, I'll tell
what saved my life. I'rovldeuce evidently
answered my good wife's prayerB and
brought to her attention in our paper an ar
ticle which read ; 'Don't Tobacco Spit and
Bmoko Your Lifo Away !'
"Whnt a sermon und warning In thoso
wordsl Just what I was doing It told
about a guaranteed euro for the tobacco
habit, rnllcd No-To-Bac. 1 sent to Drug,
gist Haslcr for a box Without a grain of
faith I spit out my tobacco cud, and put
into my mouth n littlo tublct upon which
was stamped Ko-To-Uue I know It sounds
like a lio when I tell you that I took eight
tablets tho tlrst duy, seven the next, five tho
third day, and all the nerve-creeping feel
ing, rostlcssucss nud mental depression wus
gone It wnsioo good to bo true It scorned
llko a drenm. That was u month ugo I
used ono box It cost motl, and It Is worth
a thousand I gained ten pounds in weight
und lost all deslro for tobacco from the tlrst
dny 1 sleep und eat well and I havo beeu
benefited in moro ways than I cau tell. No,
the curo was no exception m my caso I
know' of ten pcoplo right here In C.vldwell
wno hnvo bought No-To-Uac from Hasler,
nnd they have been cured. Now that I reu
llxe what No-To-Buc has done for mo and
others, I knov why It Is that tho makers of
this wonderful iemed.,lho Sterling Item
edy Company, of New York and Chicago,
say: 'Wo don't claim to curo every case.
That's Fraud's talk, a lie; but we do guar
antee threo boxes to euro the tobacco habit,
and in case of failure wo are perfectly will
ing to ref un'i monov.' I would not givo a
public indorsement if I were not icrtaiu of
its reliability. 1 know It Is hacked by men
wortn n million. No-To-Huc has been a
Uod-sond to me, and I firmly bflliove it will
curo any ense of tobacco-using If faithfully
tried, and thero are thousands of tobacco
slaves w ho ought to know how easy it is to
get frco. There's happiness In No-To-Bao
for the prematurely old mcu, who think as
I did that thoy nro old and worn out, when
tobacco Is Uio thing that destroys their vi
tality and manhood "
Tho public should bo warned, howovor,
Against the purchase of nny of the .many
imitations on the market, as tho success of
No-To line hus brought forth a host of
sountcrfelters and Imitators. Tho genulno
No-To-Uao Is sold under a guarantee to
jure, by all druggists, and every tablet has
the word No-To-llao plainly stumped thero
an, and you run no physical or financial
risk in purchasing the genuine article.
