To have the pains and aches of a bad

annoying, dangerous urinary disorders
is enough to make any kidney sufferer
grateful. To tell bow this great change
can be brought about will provecomfort
ing words to hundreds of Laurens read
J. R. Sample, farmer, near Greenwood
says: "I have used Doan's Kidney Pills
and can recommend them as a good
remedy for the back and kidneys. 1 was
troubled for a long time with my kidney
secretions which were full of sediment,
very dark and of a strong odor and
caused me annoyance during the night.
My back lias caused me great suffering
especially at night, right across the small
of it. A dull aching pain existed which
caused me to lay awake all hours of the
night, thereby losing rest, greatly to rny
discomfort as well as to the derangement
of my general health. I tried all kinds
of remedies, liniments, and plasters, but
nothing gave me any relief. Seeing
Doan's Kidney Pills advertised in our
papers I obtained them. Since .using
them according to directions, the secre
tions from the kidneys cleared up and the
backache has left me. I attribute this
result entirely to Doan's Kidney Pills."

Copyright, 1000, by I?o & Bhopard
This was Soutbport in summer, but
in winter, when tho Jittlo harbor at
tno Cnpo woe lcebouiul, the winding
rond to tho head of tho island buried
beneath drifts and tho peoplo often for
weeks at a tlmo absolutely cut off j
from communication with tho rest of
the world, It was a place cheerless in j
its desolation. Like so many wood
chucks then tho residents kept within
doors or only stirred out to cut wood, j
fodder the stock and shovel paths so
that tho children could go to school.
The days were short and tho evenings
long, and ti* got together and spend
hours in labored conversation the only
pastime. It was one of thoso long even
ings and when Aunt Ussy and Tolly
wore at a neighbor's and Uuclo Terry,
left to himself, was reading every Hue,
including tbo advertisements, in tho
last Journal, that tho following met
WANTRD.?Information that will lead
to tho discovery of an heir to tho estate
Of one Krlc Peterson, a landowner and
shipbuilder of Stockholm, Sweden, whose
eon, with his wlfo, child and crew, was
Known to havo been wrecked on the coaat
of Malno In March, 187?, Nothing has
over been heard of said Peterson or his
wife, but tho child may havo been saved.
Any ono having Information that will lead
to tho dlscovory of this child will bo
amply rewarded by communicating with
NICHOLAS FHYK, Attorney at Law, ?
Pemberton Square, Uoston.
"Waal, I'll be everlastln'ly gol darn
ed!" Undo Terry exclaimed after he
had read it for tho third time. "If this
don't beat all natur I'm a goat."
It was fortunate he was alone, for it
gavo him tlmo to think tho matter
over, and after half an hour of aston
ishment he decided to say nothing to
his wife or Telly.
"I'll jlst breathe easy an' sag up,"
lie said U> himself, "same as though I
was crossin' thin ice, an* if nothln'
comes on't nobody '11 bo the worse for
Then he cut the slip out and hid it in
his black leather wallet, and then cut
out tho cntlro page and burned it.
"Winnnln are sieh curia erectors
they'd be sure (o want to know what
I'd cut out o' that page," lie said to
himself, ": n' never rest till I told 'em.''
When Aunt Llssy and Telly came
hon e Uncle Terry was as composed
as a rock and sat quietly purling his
pipe, with his feet on top of a chair
ami pointing toward tho fire.
"Were you lonesome, father?" ashed
Telly, who usually led conversation In
the Terry home. "We stopped Rt Uns
cuiii's, und you know he never stops
"lie's worse"n burdock burs ter i:U
away from," answered Unelo Terry,
"an" ye can't bo perllto ter him unless
yo want f spend the rest o' ycr life
ltstcnln'. His tonguo allus seemed ter
be hung in the middle an' wag both
ways. I wasn't lonesome," ho contin
ued, rising and adding a few slicks
to tho fire ns tho two women laid aside
their wraps and dr?w chairs up. "I've
read tho paper purty well through on'
had a spell o' llvln' over bygones," and
then, turning to Telly and smiling, ho
added: "I got tblnkln' o' the day ye
cume nHhore, an' mother she got that
excited sho sot tho box yo was In on
tho stovo an' then put inoro wood In.
It's a wonder she didn't put ye in tho
stove instead o' the wood!"
As this Joke was not new to the lis
teners no notice was taken of it, and
the three lapsed Into silence.
Outside the steady boom of tho surf
beating on the rocks came with monot
onous regularity, and inside tho clock
ticked. For a long tlmo Undo Terry
sat and smoked on in sllvucc, resum
ing, perhaps, his bygones, and then
said: "By the way, Telly, what's bo
: come o' thotu trinkets o' youm yo had
j on that day? It's been so long now,
'most twenty yonrs, I 'bout forgot 'em.
' I s'po8c ye hain't lost 'em. hov ye?"
"Why, no, father," sho answered, a
I little surprised. "I bopo not. They
I aro all In a box In my bureau, and no
one ever disturbs them."
"Yo wouldn't mind fetehln' 'em now,
would ye, Telly?" ho continued after
drawing a long whiff of smoko and
slowly emitting it in rings. "It's been
so many years, an' since I got thlnkln'
'bout it I'd llko to take a look nt 'em,
jest to remind mo o' that fortunato
day ye came to us."
The girl aroso and, going upstairs, re
turned with a small tin box shnpod like
a trunk and, drawing the tablo up in
front of Uncle Terry, set the box down
upon it. As ho opened It she perched
herself on tho arm of his chair and,
leaning against his shoulder, passed one
arm caressingly around his neck and
watched him take out tho contents.
First came a soft, fleecy blanket, then
two little garments, once whitest mus
lin, but now yellow with age, oud then
another smaller ono of flannel. Pinned
to this were two tiny shoes Of knitted
wool. In the bottom of the box was a
small wooden shoo, aud though clumsy
In comparison, yot evidently fashioned
to lit a lady's foot. Tucked in this was
n little box tied with faded ribbon, and
1 in this wore a locket and chain, two
rings and a scrap of paper. The writ
ing on the pnper, once hastily scrawled
by a despairing mothers' hand, bad al
most faded, and lnsldo tho locket wore
two faces, one a man's with strongly
marked features, the other girlish with
big eyes and hnir in curls.
Theso wero nil tho heritage of this
wnif of tho 6Ph who now, n fair girl
with eyes and face like tho woman's
picture, was leaning on the shoulder
Of bor foster father, and they told a
pathetic tale of life and death; of ro
mance and mystery not yet unwoven.
Flow tunny times that orphan girl
bnd imagined what that tale might be;
I how often before she had examined
every ono of those mute tokens; how
many limes gazed with mute eyes at
tho faces in the locket; and how, as
the years bearing her onward toward
maturity passed, had sho hoped and
waited, hoping ever that somo word,
some whisper from that faroff land of
her birth might reach her!
And as she looked at those mule rel
ics which told so llttie and yet so much
of her history, while the old man who
had been all that a kind father could
be to her took them out ono by ono,
she realized more than over what a

When be bnd looked them over and
put them bnck In the exact order In
which they had been packed, he closed
the box and, taking the little hand that
had been caressing his face in his own
wrinkled and bony one, bold It for a
moment. When ho released It the girl
utooped and, pressing her lips to his
weather browned cheek, nroso and re
sumed her seat.
"Waal, ye better put the box away
now," said Thiele Terry at last. "I'll
Jest go out nn' take a look offu tho
p'lut, and then It'll be time to turn In."
I'VE got tor go ter Boston,"
said Uncle Terry to his wife
a few days later. "Thar's
Home money due us that wo
ain't snrtln we'll git. You an' Telly
can tend the lights for a couple o'
nights, can't ye? 1 won't be gone
more'n that. Pascoui's to take me up
to the bead, an' If the boat's runnin'
I'll be all right."
This plan had cost Uncle Terry a
good deal of diplomacy. Not only did
he have to Invent a reasonable excuse
for going by exciting the fears of both
Bnseom and Oaks regarding money
really due them, but ho had to allay the
curiosity of Iiis wife and Telly as well.
In a small village like the Cape every
one's movements were well known to
nil nmi commented on, nnti no one was
better aware of It than Undo Terry.
But go to Boston he must, and to do so
right in the dead of winter and not ex
cite a small tempest of curious gossip
taxed, his Yankee wit.
At Hath he had a few hours' wait
and went to the hank and drew a sum
Of money from his small savings.
"Lawyers are socb sharps, consarn
'em!" he said to himself. "I'd better
go loaded. Most likely I'll come back
skinned. I never did tacklo a lawyer
'tbout losin' my shirt."
When, after an all night ride, during
which he sat In the smoking car with
bis pipe and thoughts for company, be
arrived In Hosten, bo felt, as he would
phrase It, like a cat In a strange gar
ret Ho had tried to fortify himself
against the expected meeting with this
Fryo, who, he felt sure, would make
him pay dearly for any service. W hen
he entered the rather untidy oflico of
that IcKul light Uncle Terry looked sus
piciously at its occupant.
"Well, sir, what can I do for your"
asked Five after his visitor had Intro
"Waal," answered Uncle Terry, ink
ing a seal and laying his hat on the
lloor heslde him, "I've come on rather
a curls errand." And, taking out the
slip ho had n few days before placed
In his wallet, bo handed it fo Fryo
with the remark, "That's my errand."

"I urn very glad lo see you, Mr. Ter- j

together, "If you have any facts in
your possession tliat will aid ua In the I

shall be glad to pay you for them, pro

Uncle Terry looked at the lawyer a '
moment before answering.
"I didn't come here to tell all 1 knew
the fust go off," ho said. "I know all
'bout this shipwreck an' a good deal
more that'll consarn ye, but fust I
want to know who Is look In' for tho

It was t'rye's turn to staro now.
"This man won't bo any easy wit

"That I am not at liberty to disclose
until I know what facts you can es
tablish, but rest assured that any in
formation you may have, if It be proved
of real value, will entitle you to nn
