Page Three A Woman Gratitude "For more than a year 1 had been a sufferer, completely broken down. I had not slept but two or three hours any night for weeks. I had such awful misery in my head, and oh, I was so irritable. I could not depend upon my. judge ment, and my memory was failing. I realized that I was losing my mind, and I thought the grave, or worse, the asy lum, would be my doom. My doctor said my case was be yond the reach of medicine. I went to a druggist and told him my condition. He recom mended Dr. Miles' Nervine; he was pretty sure it would help me, so I bought a bottle. That night I took a table spoonful, and fell asleep in a few minutes, the first rest I had in weeks, and oh, I will never forget that sweet sleep while I live. I have continued taking it, and sleep like a baby, and gain rapidly." MRS. VIOLA BARKER, Grange, Texas.

"William Ellis Corey, President of the United States Steel Corporation, will be the husband of Mabelle Gilman, the ac tress, when he returns to New York from Paris. This statement was made by Mr. Corey to members of his family and to officers of the Steel cor poration in New York before he sailed. Leading men of the corporation told Mr. Corey he must be back by Febru ary 1. The officials insist he has not been asked to resign and he will not resign of his own volition. One offi cial said they did not care who Mr. Corey married if he attended to his duties. Mr. Corey has ail along intended marrying Mabelle Gilman, according to those in close touch with the family here. He went to Paris intending to bring her back as his wife. He has repeatedly denied his approaching marriage because he wanted to avoid the publicity that has attended every feature of the divorce proceedings of his former wife, Laura Cook Corey. Mr. Corey will visit his boyhood home and his parents here this spring, after he has attended to corporation affairs in New York. It will be his first visit to his parents since his do mestic troubles. His parents have no animosity against him, and he will be welcomed. Mr. Corey's marriage was expected several days ago by his relatives here, but word came that it would be soon.

William Ellis Corey, President of the United States Steel Corporation, has eschewed the gayeties of Paris with all its attractions to Pittsburg millionaires for the quiet life in the country. The head of the Steel Trust, immediately after his arrival here from New York, proceeded to the Chateau Villegnis, near the vllage of Massay Ferriere, which Miss Mabelle Gilman bought some three months ago for 650,000 francs. He arrived in the chateau on the night of December 21, after automobiling from Paris through a snow storm, and is living in the cha teau now. Miss Gilman is chaperoned by her mother and Mr. Corey's sister. She and the millionaire are frequently seen dashing over the snowy roads in a clos ed automobile in the vicinity of the Turn over a new leaf.

The couple seem desirous of avoid ing observation, as the automobile al ways makes a wide detour instead of passing through the village, to whose inhabitants the new and pretty chat elaine from the United States remains an absorbing mystery. j Before the arrival of Mr. Corey, Miss Gilman frequently visited the villago postoffice to inquire for telegrams cr letters. Her beautiful Parisian gowns and hats always brought the curious villagers to the doors and windows to watch her pass. Miss Gilman's independent American manners seem to displease the simple villagers. One day, in .particular, it! is related, she entered the little post-; office, and, not finding the Postmistress by her desk, ppenetrated the bedroom beyond, where the woman was dress ing, and soundly upbraided her for neg lecting her duty. The villagers have been unable to learn anything of the affairs of the occupants of the chateau of Villegnis. Mr. Corey and Miss Gilman ought io be deeply interested in the chateau, about which cluster many traditions of the former occupants who were bearers of historic titles. The cha teau was built about the end of the seventeenth century by Coimt De Lorme, who later sold it to Prince Je rome, brother of Napoleon I., who was for six years King of Westphalia. The facade bears the carved, moss-grown coat of arms of the King of Westpha lia, who died in the bedroom now oc cupied by Miss Gilman. After King Jerome's death the cha teau was bought by Monsieur Giroux, whose daughter married Bazm, vere. The latter's son, a lawyer, now practic ing in Paris, sold the chateau, Vith its furniture, park, gardens, etc., to Miss Gilman last October for 650,000 francs. Most of the furniture was installed by Prince Jerome. The chateau is fill ed with superb furniture and decora tions, as Prince Jerome himself super vised the decorations, and approved the designs of the furniture, the best artists of the Napoleonic court being employed. The chateau is three stories high The third story is in the mansard style and the two lower stories are pierced by 26 windows, 13 In each story, which gives one an idea of the extent of the facade. Lord Ellenborough And His Sa.rca.sm T HERE are few places that have given birth to more humor and wit than the courtroom. Many have heard of the humor of the fa mous Lord Ellenborough. One day a young member of the bar rose to address the court in a grave criminal case. "My unfortunate client" he began, repeated it two or three times and then stopped short. "Go on, sir; go oa!" said Ellenbor ough. "So far the court is with you." At another time Rankle Jackson, who despised technicality aatl reveled in eloquence, began hij argument with "In the book of nature it is written" Ellenborough broke in with, "Be good enough to mention the page from which you are about to quote." One day during an important crim inal trial a surgeon was called to the stand, 5and when asked his profession he said, "I employ myself as a physi cian." "But," said Ellenborough, "does any one else employ you as a physician?" When Westmoreland was In the house of lords he rose to give his opin ion on a question in debate and said, "At this point I ask myself a question." "And a stupid answer you are sure to get to it," murmured Ellenborough. St. Louis Republic. He Knew Them. "What's up.
