lady who, was once a
victim of the "coffee heart" writes
"I have been a habitual user of cof

which I became satisfied were directly
due to the poison in the beverage, such
as torpid liver and indigestion, which
in turn made my complexion blotchy
"Then my heart became affected. It
would beat most rapidly just after I
drank my coffee, and go below normal

times my pulse would go as high as

and at last mother persuaded me to
begin the use of Postum Food Coffee.
"I gave up the old coffee entirely
and absolutely, and made Postum my
sole table beverage- This was six
months ago, and all my ills, the indi

heart action, have pased away, and
my complexion has become clear and
natural. The improvement set in

An Altered Case.
A story is told of a certain newly
appointed judge who remonstrated
with counsel as to the way In which he
was arguing his case.
"Your honor," said the lawyer, "you
argued such a case in a similar way
when you were at the bar."
"Yes, I admit that," quietly replied
the Judge. "But that was the fault of
the Judge who allowed it."

Terrified, dazed, Hilda stood for a
second riveted to the spot The next
instant she was tearing across the
room. Clutching the bell she rang,
and rang, and rang unceasingly, de
termined to alarm all and bring in
"Thank heaven!" she gasped.
Footsteps were approaching. Not
few, but many. The sound of those
footsteps was thunderingly loud.
Now the door was being flung open,
and Into the room people were rush
Hilda just saw them—just realized
that help had come—then she sank
faJnting to the ground.
"How did it happen?"
Dr. Bennett asked the question in a
tone of reproof as he took a chair at

hurrying back to his room?" asked Dr.
"Yes I will not leave my post of
duty until Nurse Eleanor arrives."
"You will telegraph for her at once?"
Three minutes later Hilda was at Sir
It was the last day of solitary nurs

Nurse Eleanor. The latter, a silent,
gentle-mannered woman, who loved
Hilda more than, any other mortal,
came immediately in response to that
"You will never allow anything that
my husband may say when he is deli
rious to escape your lips?" were al
most the first words Hilda said to her.
"Whatever he may say shall go
down with me to the grave," was the
answer, and Hilda knew that that
promise would hold good forever.
Days passed ,and the greater part
of each of those days Hilda spent at
the sick man's side, listening with fear
to his hurriedly-uttered, broken sen
tences. But, sometimes, Audrey in
sisted on sharing those vigils. To her
those broken sentences meant nothing.
They were only disjointed words, the
wandering thoughts of a feverish
brain, and she merely listened to them
mechanically. The heavy burden of
an aching heart had deadened her
powers of observation.
Friends had written to tell her that
Reggie was leaving England soon, and
that he was looking very ill and un
happy—"quite an altered man."
And Audrey knew that the reason of
that alteration was their engagement
and its mysteriously quick and incom
prehensible end. Soon lands and seas
would divide them, and distance, alas!
must strengthen the wall of silence be
tween them. The longer she pondered
over this hourly approaching separa
tion, the greater her yearning became
to frustrate it. Why should she accept
unchallenged the complete wrecking of
her life's happiness? Her hands tin
gled to write to the man she loved and
to tell him that nothing on earth would
alter her love for him. He had put
forward no reason for the severance
of their engagement. His letter was
kindly and gently worded. Between
the lines of it she read that an aching,
unhappy heart had dictated each word.
Yet it required courage to contest

She was happier now—happier than
she had been since the terrible mo
meat when the letter ending her en
gagement had arrived.
"Audrey, have you had good news?"
Hilda asked the question in a whisper.
"No but I have just come to a very
courageous decision,' 'was the reply,
spoken in an equally low tone. "I am
going up to London to-morrow to see
Reggie, and to point out to him what
a very foolish man he is to break off
his engagement with charming me."
"But you are not going alone?"
"Of course I am. Please don't ad
vise me to ask Aunt Mary to take the
chair at the interview. The subject to
be discussed would make no progress
if she did. I am going alone and un
chaperoned, and no argument will
avail to shake my decision."
With the last words on her lips, Au
drey opened the door and the next
moment she was gone.
"She ought not to go, and I ought not
to let her go," was Hilda's mental ver
But at that moment the patient's in
creasing restlessness drove all
thoughts foreign to his sufferings out
of her mind. It was evening, and the
fever was higher than it had been on
any previous occasion.
"Worse than yesterday, worse than
the day before. How much longer will
he be able to fight against the dread
enemy, death?" She asked herself the
question with a look of anguish. "And
only a few weeks ago we believed that
almost unending would be our happy

by nature, ideally comforting were all
her soothing actions to the suffering
man. Now his excited eyes were turn
ed toward her. Now his weak hands
were trying to clasp hers. He knew
nothing, he understood nothing, yet he
was sensible of the comforting power
of her presence. The long hours of
night dragged slowly by. Thin streaks
of gold and red stole across the east
ern horizon, and with the dawn came
calmer moments to the sufferer.
"This has been his worst night," said
Hilda, as Nurse Eleanor entered to
take her watch in the sick room.
There was no reply.
For the nurse had jointed together
many of the sick man's broken sen
tences, and thereby solved the secret
of his mental illness. For him death
would be kinder than life, she knew.
Now that the anxieties of nursing
were temporarily removed from Hilda's
mind she hurried at once to Audrey's
"Gone already!" she exclaimed, look
ing round. "I ought to have inter

Too late now to do aught in the mat
ter. Already Audrey was in the train.
By 10 o'clock she reached London. De
pressingly uninviting the metropolis
looked to her eyes on this morning, for
a thick yellow fog enveloped it. Yet
the visible dreariness of her present
surroundings was small indeed in com
parison to the secret dreariness that
would be hers If her mission failed.
"You'll find It difficult work getting
along to-day, miss," said the porter at
Waterloo Station, who hailed her cab.
"It's bad enough here but on the other
side of the river you can scarcely see
yout 'and before you."
But to deviate from her projected
plans was not in Audrey's nature.
Very slowly did the cabman drive,
yet with all his care he was unable to
keep his bearings. Heavy, lumbering
vehicles seemed always to be looming
up alarmingly near. More than once
he drew up, fearful of proceeding.
"Fog's getting worse," said a voice
near at hand during one of the tempo
rary stoppages of the cab. The speak
er was invisible.
Should she return to the station? Au
drey asked herself.
Return to weeks, months and years
of wondering why the blight of a brok
en heart was hers? What mattered the
present density of atmosphere? What
mattered anything that was only of a
few hours' duration, in comparison to
the long years of happy life that would
be before her as Reggy's wife.? What
ever fate had decreed that she must
face in order to secure an interview
with him she wouk .'".ce.
Once riore the cabman was reining
up the horse with a jerk. It was a
well-timed stoppage! A large brewer's
van was perilously near. Now the cab
cautiously this time. Just then some
men passed carrying torches.
"Can you tell us where we are?" ask
ed one of them.
"All I can tell you is tl^it you're a
getting in my way," replied Audrey's
cabman, indignantly. "If you stand
right in front of my 'orse's 'ead, 'ow
can I drive on?"
"It's you who're a-getting in our way.
What business 'ave you with your 'orse

was the reply, spoken with equal indig

show 'im the way off. 'E don't want to

"Take 'im off yourself!" was the an
Carefully was the advice acted on
and a moment later the horse's head
was once more pointed northwards.
Attended by hair-breadth escapes from
collisions, the driver eventually found
himself on Westminster bridge.
"I'm thinking, miss, that I shall do
better feeling my way on the embank
ment than by going along the Strand,"
said the cabman, addressing Audrey.
"Then go by the embankment," she
"Whichever way we go, it'll be slow
ish work, mis3."
He was right. Half an hour passed
and they had only gone a short dis
tance, and during the succeeding half
hour almost less progress was made.
"Once at Reggie's chambers, how
shall I be able to return to Waterloo?"
Audrey thought to herself, anxiously.
"Perhaps it would be wiser to stay at
the Hotel Cecil than to attempt to re
turn. But Hilda would be anxious
about me if I failed to reappear at
Carleton Park to-day. Oh, shall I ever
get even to Reggie's? How slowly the
man is driving! How—"
That sentence died unfinished in Au
drey's mind! She leaned forward, lis
tening breathlessly. Quickly approach
ing at a breakneck pace was a heavy
vehicle no need to tell her that the
horse belonging to it was running
away no need to tell her that danger
threatened! The cab was standing
still! Should she get out? Seek safe
ty on the pavement? But where was
the pavement? The awfulness of the
impenetrable darkness about her!
Now with the noise of thunder the
heavy vehicle was dashing past. PastT
Crash! The runaway horse had dash
ed into the cabman's waiting horse and
the oncoming heavy cart had lurched
over, falling upon the poor, struggling,
prostrate steed. Sickening to hear
were the screams of the wounded ani
mal that instantly rent the air. Horri
fied and terror-stricken, Audrey clung
to the swaying cab. But only for a
second did it sway marvelously it re
covered its balance.
"Are you hurt, miss?" shouted the
driver, as he climbed quickly down,
from the seat.
"Not in the least," she answered, in
a frightened voice.
"Then get out quickly before you are.
There's no knowing what that poor
beast mayn't do. He's pretty well kill

Instantly Audrey alighted greatly
did she long to escape from the blood
curdling sounds of the struggling
horse. Very thankful was she that
darkness hid him from her sight. But
that same darkness also kept her an

How Mrs. Reader Put Stop to Impu
dence of Peruvian.
In her story of "Ella Rawls Reader,
Financier," contributed in Every

the following incident of a struggle oi
'Mrs. Reader's in Peru:
"After eight months of useless
struggle she went to out Callao, which
is about half an hour by rail from
Lima, with her Peruvian lawyer,
Scotch Interpreter, and American en
gineer, and forced the manager to
open the warehouses and let her make
an inspection of the machinery. The
manager had met her with his law
yers, and the hour for argument be
fore she gained her point had been
something of* a strain. During the
whole process a Peruvian on the Hag

Mrs. Reader, his Jittle, narrowed eyes
staring with that deliberate insolence
only Latins can accomplish. The
company went out into the wareroom
where the machinery lay and the dif
ficult business of a hurried inspection
went forward, but still the bullying
stare never ceased. After about two
hours of it, the fine edge of that hid
den temper of her suddenly sprang up.
She whirled on him with a blaze of
words that needed no interpreter, and
all at once his stare was being re
turned by a fierce little pistol held
in a strong white hand and quite
ready for business.
"The gentleman of Peru neither
apologized nor retracted he incon
tinently fled. And he was not the only
one. Like shadows the men flitted
out of the dusky warehouse, leaving
the dangerous woman a clear field.
When she looked about there was no
one in sight but two Irish porters, and
in their eyes were sympathetic twin
kles, meeting which, Mrs. Reader
could only sink down helpless with
laughter and put up her pistol."

Too Late to Sort Cats.
Jim Crocker lived in an old tum
ble-down house in a little town in
Massachusetts. The cellar windows
being broken out, an opportunity was
afford to stray cats to run in and
out, and sometimes there would be
quite a congregation.
We lost our pet cat one evening, and
thinking she might have joined the
happy throng, we sent our man over
to ask "Uncle Jim" if he would fake a
look and see if she was among the
number. He was generally pretty
good-natured, but this time he was out
of sorts, for he said:
"Your cat may be there, or she may
not be, but I ain't a-going to light up
no lamp and go down in that cellar
this time of night sorting out cats
for nobody, so there."
