Let the greatest athlete have dyspepsia
and his muscles would Boon fail. Physi
cal strength is derived from food. If a
man haa insufficient food he loses strength.
If he has ne food he dies. Food is con
verted into nutrition through the stom
ach and bowels. It depends on the
strength of the stomach to what extent
food eaten is digested and assimilated.
People can die of starvation who have
abundant food to eat, when the stomach
and its associate organs of digestion and
nutrition do not perform their duty.
Thus the stomach Is really the vital or
gan of the body. U the stomach is "weak"
the body will ne weak also, because it is
upon the stomach the body rellos for its
strength. And as the body, considered as
a whole. Is made up of its several mem
bers and organs, so the weakness of the
body as a consequence of "weak" stom
ach will be distributed among the or
gans which compose the body. If the
body Is weak because it Is Ill-nourished
that physical weakness will be found in
all the organs heart, liltfT, kidneys, etc.

Van Wert, O., Juiy 20. "We simply
want to die together so we caa live
together in paradise." These words
were the portion of a letter found In
the pocket of Oscar Breancman who
was found lying beside the body of
Mayme Wilson in a haymow in a sub
conscious condition. Beside the two

contained chloroform. Miss Wilson
swallowed one-half the contents of a
four-ounce vial, but the yauns man's
nerve failed him in the la3t moment
and all he did was to inhale the fumes
of the poison.
Both lived a short distance from
the city and had driven to the city
where they met a number of friends
and seemed in tho best of spirits.
While in the rity they purchased the
chloroform and Miss Wilson explained
to the pharmacist that it was to be
used In putting the family lrs out of
the way. Returning home they went
to the stable where the tragedy took
place. Brenneman since recovered.
The letter containing the opening
quotation, stated there had been no
wrong doing, no ill-feeling toward
anyone. The note closed with the
following lines: "Bury us together
in the same coffin, with our heads
resting on each other's arms. Good by
to all." Signed Oscar and Mayme.
Miss Wilson and Brenneman came
from well knovn and respected fam
ilies of the community. She was 18
years old and Brenneman a year older.

they should not be punished for con

prohibiting the city to exact revenue

that they should have the privilege
of operating 'joints' without molesta

City Ice Plant.
Detroit. Mich., July 20. Mayor
George P. Codd announced that he
has under way plans for the establish
ment of a municipal ice plant in this
city which will furnish ice to citizens
at the cost of cutting, storage and de
livery. Mayor Codd's plan is to
utilize the force of men employed by
the commissioner of parks and
boulevards, who have little work to
do during the winter, ind some of the
employes of the water department, to
cut and store ice. He plans to secure
ice from the channels around Bell

near the river municipal ice houses.

"Pardon me, Mr. Benton, but has it
iot occurred to your superio-i that if
General Cromwell had wished the
names known he would have set them
down as fully as his own?"
Hezekiah thoughtfully scratched his
stubbly chin and was evidently non
plused by the view so calmly present
ed to him. After turning the problem
in his mind for a few moments, be re
plied: "Nevertheless j'ou are traveling on
the London roafl. This pass reads Car
lisle to Oxford. Newark is not on the
highway between these two towns."
"Admirably reasoned, Mr. Benton,
and I envy those who have opportunity
of hearing your discourses. They listen
to good logic, I stand warrant. But
the apparent mys-ery Is soon dissolved.
This paper was ".vritten by his excel
lency at Corbiton Manor, in the county
of Durham, at about this hour of the
night three day. ago, what time. If I
may so put it, I was the guest of his
excellency at that place. ' If you will
bear the county of Durham instead of
the county of Northumberland in mind,
you will observe I have taken the
quickest route to Oxford, when the
state of cross country roads is consid
ered. So far as the London direction
Is concerned, we deflect from It tomor
row at Stamford and will rest, God
permitting us, at Northampton tomor
row night."
"Sir, your disquisition is most com
plete and satisfactory. If but a tithe
of it had been given at Newark I would
have been saved a hurried journey
and you a cross examination. I give
you good night, and God be wTith you."
Frunces rose also when their visitor
had taken himself off.
"You nre something of a diplomatist,
Mr. Armstrong, but I fear diplomacy
requires a touch of hypocrisy. Your
account of another man's pass did not
seem strictly accurate."
"It was true nevertheless. Every
word I said was true. I never even
hinted the pass belonged to me."
The girl laughed and held out her
"Yet you cannot deny that he gath
ered a wrong impression.'
"Ah, that was his fault.notmine. But
I will be honest with you and admit at j
once that had a direct falsehood been
necessary I would have used it. I was j
determined not to give him any name, I
for the pass I hold from Cromwell set ;
Manchester as the limit, and we are j
now south of Manchester. I would !
have given Benton my name at York,
but not at Grantham."
EXT day the three were not as
early beginning their march,
because Northampton was
barely fifty miles distant and
the day was longer than the way. The
good landlady of the Angel, bustling
and voluble, saw them off with many
blessings and wishlngs that God would i
speed them. Stamford furnished baltj
for their horses and a short rest fori
themselves. Then they took the de-!
fleeting road for Northampton, but j

spirits than was the case since the pil
grimage began, for she had now per
suaded her mind, which eagerly wished
to be convinced, that her future action
would save the lives of two men Arm
strong's not less than her brother's
and so she had come to look upon her
unsuspecting companion as her benefi
ciary rather than her victim.
The day passed pleasantly enough,
even if progress was slow. Armstrong
related many interesting or amusing
anecdotes of the border, and the girl
came to the conclusion that life must
be anything but dull in that hilly dis
trict. They partook oftheir noontide
meal at a hospitable farmhouse, for
inns were few and mostly untenanted.
They learned that it would probably be
dark by the time they reached North
ampton, but there was a new moon to
light their way. They were off the
main line of travel and had the road
practically to themselves. At about
5 in the afternoon they heard the
trampiBg of a squadron behind them,
coming on at a rapid walk. Armstrong
suggested that it would be well to draw
into ti e hedge while the troopers pass
ed, and this they did. The Scot sat
easily on his hors?, watching the some
what imposing oncoming, the breast
plates of the men scintillating in the
declining sun, which shone full upon
them. Suddenly Armstrong straight
ened and, unconsciously perhaps, his
hand grasped that of the girl beside
"Have you ever seen Cromwell?" be
"That is he at the head of the cav
alry." She drew away her hand and sat
there, scarcely breathing, fearful of the
approaching encounter, which now
could not be avoided. If Anstrong
were equally perturbed he showed no
sign of it, and she admired his non
chalance as she glanced momentarily at
him. But her eyes turned instinctive
ly again to the leader of the troops.
There was something masterful in his
very bulk; he seemed a massive man
on Ids huge horse; power personified
were horse and man. His unblinking
eye faced the sun like an eagle's, and
he came stolidly past them, looking
neither to the right nor the left. The
firm face was as inscrutable and as
ruthless as that of the sphinx.
"Do you think he saw us?" she said
after the soldiers had passed.
"Saw uI" echoed Armstrong. "Yes,
every thread of our garments. What
a man! God of war, how I should like
to fight him!"
"I thought you admired him."
"So I do, more than any other on
earth. If I had seen him before I
doubt if I had been here."
"I understood you to say you met him
at Corbiton."
"Met him, yes, by dim candlelight,
smooth and courteous. But I never
really saw him until now. You cannot
rightly judge a man a fighter, that Is
until you have looked at him on
horseback. That man knows my busi-
ness. For the first time since I set
out I doubt my success."
"Will you turn back?" she asked, her
Voice quavering.
"Oh, no! I'm his Roland. If we do
not cross swordB, we'll run a race, and
may the best man win. But I feel
strangely uncomfortable about the
He raised his chin and moved his
head from side to side, as if the
rope already throttled him. Then he
laughed, and she gazed at him in fas
cinated terror.
"That man is likely to defeat me," he
continued. "His plans are all laid, and
already I feel the toils tightening
around me. I am satisfied he knows
every move I have made since I left
him. The unseen spy is on my track,
and, by my sword, I'd rather circum
vent him than rule the kingdom. Wull,
whaur's yer wits? Now's the time ye
need them, my lad. In the first place,
I dare not go through Northampton.
That's clear."
"In my soul I'm certain a crisis
awaits me there. I'll be nabbed in
Northampton. Then the question, 'Why
did you refuse a pass to Oxford?'
"Did he offer you one?"
"Yes. The next question will be,
'Why are you south of the limit set by
yourself, traveling to Oxford on anoth
er's pass?' To that query there's no
answer. I'm a self convicted spy, and
then the scaffold, according to all the
rules of war."
"Pardon me if I do not follow your
argument. If he has tracked you, as
you think, there is no more reason he
should stop you at Northampton than
at Newark or Grantham. Aside from
that, why did he not hold you when
he had you?"
"Oh, I had not put my neck into the
noose then. As for arresting me at
Newark or at Grantham, I see now
that such was his intention, but our
friend Hezekiah failed him. It was un
doubtedly Cromwell's purpose that we
should have gone back with Benton.
"Still, I do not believe you. If Crom
well is as crafty as you 6eem to be
lieve, It is likely he wishes you to reach
Oxford. Unless that was the case, why
s'jould bp aave offered you the pass?
"My las, thee are several sides to
this problem, and what you say has
the stamp of probability on it. Never
theless 111 overset his arrangements.
I am the only one of us three who can
not give good excuses for being in these
parts. Here is the pass which protects j
you and old John." he said, giving her
the document. "You and he will go to
Oxford at your leisure. I shall gallop
across country, will evade the parlia
mentary lines as best I may and will
be in Oxford tomorrow morning. That
will throw Old Noll a day out of hia
"Then you leave me to meet Crom
well alone?"
"You have no need to fear the meet
ing. Your plea is perfect. Your broth
er was wounded, and you have under
taken his task. Of me or my plans you
know nothing, and I was with you
merely because I happened to be trav
eling this way and had brought your
wounded brother to his home. And
here is a great warning to us all. Hap
py is the person who can abide by the
truth, who has no secret designs to
conceal. My lady, I envy you."
Frances made no reply, but sat there,
bending her eyes on the ground. There
could be no doubt that his new resolve
was the best move in the circum
stances, and she was not In a position
to inform him that his night march
was unnecessary and that he would
be wise to husband his horse's power
until he left Oxford, for then would
come his time of need.
"Well, let us get on," he cried. "I'll
take the first byroad south."
Cautious old John, with his limping
horse, had gone forward while they
stood talking together, and now they
cantered to overtake him. Frances
was glad of the cessation of conversa
tion that she might have opportunity
of meditating on some argument that
would retain him by her side. If he
left her, she was resolved to seek out
Cromwell at Northampton, tell him of
her brother's disaster and explain her
own effort to make good his absence.
When Cromwell was convinced that
both her brother and herself had faith
fully endeavored to carry out the com
mander's wishes he might then heed
her pleading that sentence be annulled,
or at least suspended, until the boy
had another chance of proving his loy
alty to his party. Her meditations
were interrupted by Armstrong sud
denly drawing in his horse and stand
ing up in his stirrups. She also stop
ped and looked inquiringly at him. A
high hedge bordered the road, and he
was endeavoring to peer beyond it.
"What is it?" she asked.
"I thought I caught a glint of a hel
met over yonder."
They went on at a walk and shortly
after passed a road that crossed their
own. Up this crossroad to the north
two troopers sat on their horses; down
the road to the south were two others.
As Armstrong and his companion con
tinued west the four troopers came out
of their concealment and followed
TJHE four troopers allowed the
distance between themselves
and tbe forward party neither
to Increase nor diminish until
darkness set In, when they closed up,
but said nothing. There was no fur
ther conversation between Frances and
the young man. He held himself erect
and beyond the first exclamation gave
no intimation that he was disturbed
by the prospect before him. She was
victim to the most profound dejection
and was relieved when the gathering
gloom allowed her pent up tears to fall
At last the lights of Northampton
glimmered ahead, and shortly after a
guard in front summoned them to
stand. The troopers behind them also
stood, but took no part in what fol
lowed. An officer examined their pass
by the light of a lantern, but did not
return it to them. His words seemed
reassuring enough.
"You are stopping the night in North
ampton?" "Yes," replied Armstrong, although
the pass had been given up by Frances
and the officer's inquiry was addressed
to her.
"You may meet trouble in finding a
suitable abiding place," said the officer,
"more especially for the lady. North
ampton is little better than a barracks
at the moment. I will take you to the
Red Lion." Saying this, but without
waiting for any reply, he led the way
with the swinging lantern. The Red
Lion proved a much less attractive
hostelry than the hospitable Angel at
Grantham. It seemed occupied chiefly
by armed men and resembled military
headquarters more than an inn.
"You will perhaps wish to see to your
horses yourself," suggested the officer
to Armstrong.
"Yes, after I am assured that the
lady is"
"Have no anxiety on that score. I
will place her in tbe guardianship of
the hostess and will wait here for
The assurance had all the definlte
ness of a command, and Armstrong,
without further parley, led away his
own horse and hers, followed by old
"Come this way, madam," said the
officer to Frances.
He escorted her up a stairway and,
at the top turned to her and said In
a low voice:
"General Cromwell's commands were
that you should be brought to him as
soon as you arrived."
He knocked at a door, and a gruff
voice from within told him to enter,
He opened the door and went in, fol
lowed by tis prisoner.
"I have brought the woman, general.
The man is under guard below." Say
ing this and receiving no reply, the
officer laid the pass on the table and
withdrew, closing the door behind him.
Cromwell stood at the Window, look
ing down on the dark street below,
dotted with moving lights. His broad
back was toward his visitor, arid he
did not turn round even when he ad
dressed her. On a chair rested his
polished breastplate and steel cap;
otherwise he was accoutered as he had
been when she saw him on the road.
His voice was hoarse.
"Who are you, wench, and what are
you to this man that you range the
land brazenly together under a pass
written for neither of you?"
With some difficulty the girl found
her voice after two or three inef

The general's ponderous head turned
slowly, and he bent his sullen eyes
upon her. She wondered Armstrong

countenance even by candlelight.
"Why is your brother not in your
"My brother was sorely wounded the
morning he set out and now lies be

"How came he wounded?"
"He met Lord Rudby, who attacked
him. My brother would not defend
himself, and so was thrust through the
body. Armstrong brought "hiiu to our
house, and the doctor says he cannot
be moved for a month at least."
"Why was I not informed of this?"
"I did not know where to find you."
"You, wench, surely did not know
where to find me, but your brother
knew that a message to his nearest
superior would find me."
"My brother, I have told you, was
dangerously wounded and had but one
thing in his mind to have done with
the task you had set upon him."
"He committed it to j'our hands
"He did."
"What was the task I set him?"
"It was to steal from Armstrong the
