HOW DILL HIT TIIK TRAIL.
IlIKN "tho crowd'' was with us
tho Pilot read us all sorts of
talcs of adventures In all
lands by heroes of all ages,
but when we three sat together by our
?re the Pilot would always read us
tales of the heroes of sacred story, and
these delighted Hill uioro than thoso of
any of the ancient empires of the past.
Be bed his favorites. Abraham, Mo
tes, Joshua, Gideon, never fulled to
arouse his admiration. Hut Jacob was
to him always "a mean cuss," and
David he could not appreciate. Most
of all he admired Moses and the apos
tle Paul, whom he called "that llttlo
chap." But when the 'reading was
about tho one Croat Man that moved
majestic amid the gospel stories Hill
made no comments -he wus too high
By and by Hill began to tell these
tales to the boys, and one night, when
a quiet mood had fallen upon the com
pany, Bill broke the silence.
"Say, Pilot, where was It that the
Itttle chap got mixed up Into that riot r**
"ltlot!" said the Pilot.
? "Yes. You remember when be stood
Off tho vt*hr\1'.v^VV*S from the stairs?"
\ "Oh, yes, at Jerusalem."
"Yea, that's the spot. Perhaps you
would read that to the boys. Hood
-.?arn! Little chap, y<u know, stood up
H^.d told 'cm they were nil sorts of
blanked thieves and cutthroats, and
Ftood 'em off. Played It alone too."
Most of tho boys failed to recognize
the story In Its new dress, 't here was
"Who was the duck? Who was the
gang? What was the row about?"
"The Pilot here'll tell y u. If you'd
kind o* give 'em n load before you be
gin, they'd catch on to the yarn bet
ter." This last to the Pilot, who was
preparing to read.
"Well, it was at .1 ?rusalcm," began
the Pilot, when Hill Interrupted:
"If I might remark, perhaps it might
help the boys on to lb* trail, mebbe. 1/
you'd tell 'em bow the lit tie chap struck
his new gait." So be designated the
A apostle's conversion.
T Then the Pilot Introduced tho
apostle with r.Jiue formality to the
company, describing wit It such vivid
touches his life and early training, bis
sudden wrench from all be held dear
under the stri ss of a new < mvlctlon,
his magnificent enthusiasm and cour
age, bis tenderness and pattenco, that 1
-Was surprised to find myself regarding
him as a sort of hero, and the boys
were nil ready to back him against any
odds. As the Pilot read the story of
the arrest at Jerusalem, stopping now
and then to picture tho Bcene, wo buw it
all and v.'cro In the thick of It. The
raging crowd bustling and beating the
life out of the brave little man, the sud
den thrust of the disciplined Roman
gunrd through the mass, the rescue, the
pause on the stairway, the culm face of
the little hero beckoning for a heating,
the quieting of the frantic, frothing
mob, the fearless speech all passed be
fore us. The boys were thrilled.
I "flood stuff, eh?"
"Ain't ho a daisy?"
"Daisy! lie's a whole sunflower
"Ves," (In*Wied Bill, highly appreci
ating their marks of approval. "That's
what I call a partlckler fine character
of a man. Th -re ain't no manner of In
seeks on to him."
"You bet!" said Hi.
"I say." broke In one of the boys,
who wus J;:.-t emerging from the ten
derfoot stage, "o' course that's In the
Bible, ain't If?"
The Pilot a.-Monted.
"Well, how do you know It's true?"
Thi? Pilot was proceeding to elabo
rate Ids argument when Bill cut in
somewhat moro abruptly than was his
"Look here, young feller!" Pill's
voice was In the tone of command.
The man looked as be was bid. "How
*}lo you know nuything's true? How do
you know the Pilot here's true wdion
be speaks? Can't you loll by tlio feel?
You know by the sound of his voice,
dou't you?" Hill paused, and tbe young
fellow agreed readily,
? "Well, how do you know a blanked
son of a she Jackass when you see
him?" Again Hill paused. There was
"Well," said Hill, resuming bis dellb
z erate drawl, "I'll give you the Informa

nettled at the laugh that went round,
"that dont prove anything. Von

are heaps of people who don't believo
The Pllol nodded.
"Home of the smartest, best educated
men are agnostics," proceeded the
JTOUng man, w.inning to his theme and
falling to notice the stiffening of Hill's
lank figure. "I don't know but what I
am 0110 myself."
"That so7" said Bill, with sudden In
"I guess so," was the modest reply.
"Got !t bad?" went on Bill, with a
note of anxiety in his tone.
But the young man turned to tho
Pilot and tried to open a fresh argu

Bill rose languidly.

at tbc door.

"Exoolly," said III, opening the door.

lie was too laic. Bill's grip Wtis on his
collar and out they went Jnto the snow,
and behind (hem ill closed tho door.
In vain the young fellow struggled to
wrench himself free from the bands
that had him by the shoulder and the
back of the neck. 1 look It nil In from
the window, lie might have been a
boy for all tho effect his plunglngs had
upon Ihe long, sinewy arms that
gripped him so fiercely. After a min
ute's furious struggle tho young fel
low stood qulet, when Bin suddenly
shlftvd his grip from tbe shoulder to
the se.it of his buckskin trousers. Then
began u series of evolutions before tbe
house, up and down, forward and
back, which the unfortunate victim,
with bauds wildly clutching at empty
nlr, was quite powerless to resist till
he was brought up, panting and gasp
ing, subdued, to a standstill.
"I'll lam you agnostics and several
other kinds of tricks," said Bill in A
terrible voice, his drawl lengthening
perceptibly. "Come round hero, will
you, and shove your blanked second
handed trash down our throats?" Bill
paused to got wot-ds; then, bursting out
in rising wrath:
"There ain't no sootable words for
sich conduct. By the llvlu' Jtnulny"?
He suddenly swung his prisoner o(T his
feet, llfteil htm bodily and held him
over hl;i bend at arm's length. "I've a
"Don't! Don't 1 For heaven's sake!"
cried the struggling wretch. "I'll stop
It! I will!"
Bill at once lowered him and sot him
on his feet.
"All right! Shako!" he said, holding
out bis hand, which the other took
it w:is ;i remarkably sudden conver
sion and lasting in Ms effects. There
was no more agnosticism In the little
group that gathered around the Pilot
for the nightly reading.
The Interest In tho reading kept
growing night by night.
"Seems as If ihe Pilot was glttln' In
his work," said Bill to me, and looking
at the grave, eager faces I agreed. lie
was get ling in his work with BUI, too;
thom-h p'erbnps Bill did not know It
I remember one night, when the others
had gone, the Pilot was reading to us
tbe parable of the talents and Bill was
particularly Interested In the servant
who failed In his duty.
"Ornery cuss, eh?" lie remarked.
"And gall, too, eh? Served him blamed
well right. In my opinion!"
But when the practical bearing of
the parable became clear to him, after
long silence, he said slowly:
"Well, that there seems to Indicate
that It's about time for me to get a
rustle on." Then, after another silence,
he said hesitatingly: "This here church
bulldhl' business now, do j-ou think
that Ml perhaps count, inebbc? I guess
not. oh? 'Tttln't much, of course, any
way." Poor Bill, he was like a child,
ami tho Pilot handled him with n
"What are you best at, Bill?"
"Bronco bust in' and cnttle," said
Bill wonderlngly. "That's my line."
"Well, Bill, my line is preaching just
now and piloting, you know." The
Pilot's smile was like n sunbeam on u
rainy day, for there were tears in bis
eyes and voice. "And we have Just got
to be faithful. You see what he says:
'Well done, good and faithful servant.
Thou bast been faithful.' "
Bill was puzzled.
"Faithful!'' be repealed. "Poos that
mean with the cattle, perhaps?"
"Yes, that's Just it, Bill, and with
everything else that comes your way."
And Bill never forgot that lesson, for
i hoard him, with a kind of quiet en
thusiasm, giving it to III as a great
find. "Now, I call that a fair deal," he
said to bis friend. "(Jives every man
a show. No cards up tbe sleeve."
"That's so," was Ill's thoughtful re
ply; "distributes the trumps."
Somehow Bill came tc be regarded
as an authority upon questions of re
ligion and morals. No one ever ac
cused him of "gottln* religion." IIo
went about bis work In bis slow, quiet
way, but ho was always sharing his
discoveries with "the hoys." And If
any one puzzled him with subtleties he
never rested till ho bad him face to
face with 11)0 Pilot. And so It came
that tbeso two drew to each other with
more than brotherly affection. Wliej?
BUI got Into difficulty with problems
that have vexed the souls of men far
wiser than h", the Pilot would either
disentangle (be knots or would turn bis
mind to the verities that stood out
sure and clear, and Pill would be con

A Tragic Life
If ihere is anything in Iho theory that we got ovir h lavon and hell hero on earth,
it could he siid with perfect truth that a $1 medical proscription known as P. I). D.,
literally lifted tltis man out of hell. The awful miseries of a poisoned skin can bo
understood only by the afflicted. The nights of sleepless agony with hands lied to
prevent tcirinii the flesh, the rundown general condit; >n which results, and the black
hopelessness of life can all be visibly traced in the fu st of thoso photos. As will bo
?ecu thl; man i3 a man of powerful physique, hut it will be seen from his faca in the
f:rst picture that it is a grim struggle to live and keep up Iiis com i
In contrast, if the reader will fairly consider the picture after Ire dm at v Ith

worked a wonder here. Header, it was notion;; on earth but D. 1>. 1). and a Kind
Providence which directed the attention of this man to a public announcement about
this medicament and its wonderful work in such cases. Providence went farther than
this; it gave him some confidence in what he read lie made up his mind that he
would try it To this fact he owes all the peace, content and happiness so plainly
seen in his face in the second picture. He states that after the third applii ation of
the remedy all his previous distress had disappeared entirely. The fevered condition
resulting lrom continued irritation had subsided and ho slept soundly night ;.
The name of this gctleman is Mr. Henry Walters, ol St. Louis. >'? >. We have
the sworn affidavit of Mr. Walters that in just twenty-nine days after starting treat
ment with D. I>. D. he discontinued further use of it, every visible trau1 oi the dis
ease having disappeared. Since that time not a trace of the trouble has shown it elf
oa any part of bis body. Mis hair has since grown long and the scrubby beard pre
viously grown en his face to hide the sores, is kept cleanly shaved, and he is today a
man of strikingly fine appearance, with the highest ambition and activities in life and
every happiness possible to most men here on earth. Results of this kind that ara
proven to bo directly due to a preparation of this sort certainly call for public ap
preciation. This prescription in scaled bottles, bearing authentic label ol D. D. D.
