16 Mrs. FranK Grosvenor, No. 212' Twenty-first St., Galveston, Tex. Galvestok , Tex., - Y ; " ; March 13, 19WS. For three years after my mar riage I felt peculiar bearingrdown pains such as I had never expe rienced before. I tried different t remedies but found it was only money -wasted. I then consulted a physician who treated me for two months and then said my ovaries were diseased and that I would never get well unless I had 'an operation. I knew that would mean that I would never have a child and I dreaded the ordeal. 1 changed physicians but found this did not help me any, and I was in despair. My sister-in-law then visited me and when I told her of my trouble she said: "If you had used common sense and Wine of Cardui you, would not have been in such a plight." She had used it in her own home and it had carried her through three times ' when she had children. I sent for some at once and took it faith fully and now find to my great joy mat 11 was an aae cianueu lor n. New strength and with it new . , hope came back to me and it seemed as if every dose gave me new life. Within three months I was changed from a dragged out mortal weary . of life to a hearty, healthy woman full of ambition and life. No opera tion was needed and better than all I became the mother of a little girl, the pride and joy of the household. I have had two other children Bince without a particle of trouble. 1 am well and never take any medi cine but Wine of Cardui. I only write that other poor sick women could know of this life-giving medicine and would take it without spending time and money ob doctors, who don't cure. WINE OF CARDUI, the simple remedy which Mrs. Grosvenor advises you to take has trans formed her from a sick, discouraged woman to the bright, happy, healthy person yoa see in this portrait. In stead of languishing on a bed of sick ness Mrs. Grosvenor id now equipped for any duty of womanhood. There are some chronic cases which no medicine can cure but nineteen out of every twenty sufferers today may have the health Mrs. Grosvenor has if they will only take the Wine of Uardui treatment as Mrs. urosvenor the terrible smarting pains and the inflammation cease. .Though pow erful in correcting the irregularities of menstruation.

"Now, Venning, with this old Madeira we must have a story from you." - The gentleman addressed fingered the decanter thoughtfully before he spoke. "I never tell the story, I will relate to night - without drinking a silent toa3t. Tour permission?" he . asked, with a questioning glance at his host. "Certainly, anything that pleases you-" - The gracious reply gave no hint of ths curiosity Venning's request had aroused in his host a curiosity shared by every man seated around the table. The watched the whimsical guest with much interest He slowly poured out the wine, trazed into its fragrant clearness, moved his lips as if speaking to himself, gave a quick upward glance, and drained the glass to the last drop. Then, while the firelight peopled the room with fitful siiadows, Venning told his tale. - A-. , most of you know, 1 "pent my youth" In France. It was there iiiat i mar. cd and there my son was born. Alter thtee years of happiness pitch :is is known to few men my wife died. leaving our home so lonely and full of painful associations that I determines to sell it. Having disposed of the place, I, with my little son, boarded a steam ship bound for New York, where no haunting memory of past joy would poison every hour. "During the voyage I made the ac quaintance of a strange fellow a Hin doo. Peculiar people always attract me and I'm never quite satisfied until I find out something about them. By quiet persistence-1 finally discovered his pro fession, for such he called it. He was a tattooer, intending to practice his art in America, where he thought there would be more fresh opportunity than in Franee. At first it rather amused me to talk to him, but I found him so doggedly unresponsive that after a lit tle I let. him alone. "Toward night of the fourth day out I was pacing the deck, uneasily noting the signs of a gathering storm. As you may imagine, my son was the very core of my heart, and any danger that ap proached him was magnified to me. So was that while the increasing wind drove the clouds into huge dark masses pictured all the terrible possibilities of sbiowreck. In the midsit ol these nervous thoughts it suddenly occurred to me that it might be a wise precau tion to have my son tattooed: then, in case of disaster and separation, it would be easier to trace him. immediately started oft to seek the Hindoo. After some little search I found him huddled up- near a lifeboat, mumbling over an amulet,. He seemed strangely unwilling to give the boy an identification mark, but by doubling the price, I finally per suaded him to do so. I shall never for get that night, .when, as a fierce Kale tossea trie steamer to and fro, I held the child and watched, the swarthy art ist ink the letter into the white skin. The storm passed, however, without do ing us anv harm, and the rest of the trip was calmly uneventful. VS hen we reached New York and were ready to land, the little fellow was fast asleep, so 1 carefully i-eq the state-room, leaving him in hi. berth while I put my trunks through th cus torn house. On my return the door stood open the boy was gone! 'In the confusion of landing some one had forced the lock very cleverly, too and carried off the child. God knows what I lived through, as one after an other, each line of investigation failed. 1 have advertised and employed detee tives in every land; I myself have be come a wanderer always looking for the boy. , I have also made every effort to locate the Hindoo, thinking that he might for money tell me something of the abduction with which he may have been connected. But it as all been use less, even the precaution of tattooing:. Through all these lonely years of search 1 have found no trace of my boy. Venning paused for a moment. Sym pathy was written on every face, but no one spoke; the silence was broken only by the crackling fire and the tall clock ticking away in the corner. "Now, gentlemen," Venning continued, you know to whom I drank the silent toast. I Tiever tell this story without drihking the health of my boy, who, if living, is now a man, and I never miss a chance to tell it, always honing that some listener may be able -to give me a clue, however slight. Venning ceased speakine and looked around the table, an appeal In his eyes tnat went straignt to the heart of every man. "By George!" exclaimed the host. "I'd give a good deal if I could help you! "So would I." said Dr. Ames, one of those kind-hearted men who better the world by living. "But you haven't told u sabout the marking. What was the letter, and where was the boy tattooed on lesr or arm?" "Neither," Venning promptly replied. "A leg or an arm may be lost. My son was marked on the rierht side of the breast heavily marked with the letter V." . "Well," said the physician decidedly. man with a mark like that ought to be rouna. - - .. . "That's what I think." returned Ven ning. "Dut i haven't found him vet." As he spoke the tall clock in the corner chimed the midnight hour;, the gentleman arose, bidding their host good night and departing, each one thinking of Venning's loss. - . i- A few weeks after this Dr. Ames was starting out for his afternoon round of calls. As he opened the street door young man came up the steps, smiling, xnougn rainer .paie.. . . , "Caught you just in time, didn't I, doc tor?-' "What's the matter, Baton," said the physician, seeing that something was wrong with his youns friend. "Oh, " I've been trying to blow up the laboratory over here in Columbia. Guess there s some ela.s loosed m my shoulder. "Come in," said the doctor, leading the way back to his. office. ''I'll patch you Up. - - i " Though Eaton laughingly remonstrated the pnysician assisted him to remove mi clothina. , As the youns: fellow's muscula: chest was bared. Dr. Ames stifled an ex- clamation, almost the same -instant his face clouded with disappointment. There, on the right side of the breast, a letter was tattoed but not the letter V. Hop ing; that Helton hadn t noticed ms mom en tary confusion, the doctor quietly took out the glass and began to dress the slight wound. "If you don't mind telline me. I'd like to know where you had that tattooing doner 13aton laughed. "You know as much about it as I do," he said. "That letter has been there ever since I can remember. Haven't you seen it before? "No." replied the doctor, thouerhtfullv. "though I've been your family physician for years, you ve never needed much at tention. "I've been provoking healthy, haven' T" "You certainly have, and now I'm going to punish "you by asking questions. Since you can't tell me where you were tattooed, nerhaDS vou can tell me whv?" "I can't do that, either, doctor. You know how reticent old Baton could be when he liked. I never could tret any sat isfaction out of him; whenever I asked him why he had branded me with a vv he would always say "Because I knew you would be wayward or wise." He never would speak of it seriously: guess it was only one of his whims he had plenty of them."' - "I should think he did!" exclaimed the doctor, thinking of the eccentric man who had checKered nis lire witn so many freaks and fancies. Oivine the last touc to the dressing, the doctor asked Eaton to step over nearer the window. "I want to look .at that letter," he said, drawing up the shade to gret a stronirer nrnt. As the doctor examined the W through noowerful glass he srrew more and more Intent, his eyes shining with excitement. Eaton, also, was. looking at the letter oh his breast. - . i--- - J'l wonder," he said thoughtfully, as if speaking to himself, "if that 'W has any thing to do : with my real father V "With your what?' cried the doctor sharply. - . , "My real father." Eaton replied. "The night before he died old Eaton told me that I was not his own son that he knew nothing of my parents that he bought me Eaton cried in as- the "A Hindoo!" " -"How did you know?' conisnraenE. ., The doctor was half way across room. . "Wait here till I come back," he called, closing the office door behind him. Striding rapidly through the hall the doc tor said to himself: "That Hindoo ought to be tortured! Stole the boy and changed the 'V to 'W the glass showed up the letter last half lighter than the first." By the time the doctor had reached the telephone, he called up the club and asked for Venning. A moment later any one standing near might have heard him say : "Hello, old boy! Come up to my office there's a man here wants to see you-' and, say, Venning, take an automobile!

At no time in the history of irehgion ' has there been greater need of a direct ! and concise religion. The world moves ; and acts quickly, and religion must keep pace with it. rRev. Dr. Hooaer, Baptist, New York. ' ": NEEDS OF THE L'HUKUH. What the church really needs today is the spirit of liberality, exhibiting it self all the -year round. Many church members have not learned the blessed ness of giving. The Bible always re gards it as a SDiritual exercise, as mucn a part of .worship as praise and prayer. Rev. A. B. Bhllputt, tnaianapous. , STUDY PRESENT SITUATION.. Instead of laboring for a unity that has never existed and never can exist under present conditions we sneulu study present situations. There are social problems, ghetto problems. Their solution will be found not in sciences or legal enactments, but in a more general application of the principles of humanity. Rev Dr. Roseman, Hebrew, Baltimore. - - HIDDEN WISDOM OF THE WORD. To those bnlv who are aumble and desire to do the. Lord's will mere babes in their own estimation because depen dent wholly on the Lord for all they. have to do these only see the hidden wisdom in the world. It is best to know the very least possible about a true life if man is bent upon refusing that life. Rev. L. G. - Hoeck, Swedenborgian, Brooklyn. . THE FAITH OF ISRAEL. It is not Jesus, the Jew, .who has alone died for the sias of men, but the race, whose martyred bones are scat tered in all lands. The burdens that have bent the" Jew's back have made his soul stand erect. Today, when the doctrines of the church are corroding under the acid of criticism, the faith of Israel remains , unshaken. Rev. Dr. Friedman, Hebrew, .Denver. WORK AND WUKSHlf. , In this day, whea we are so wont to emphasize work more than worship, when we are so likely to restrict pray er, to its mere uses of petition, when we are in want of religious experience. when we are so apt to forget that fruit fulness in Christian service means close connection of vine -and branch, surely It is good to be .reminded that spirit uality is the root and source of all greatness of thougheand of life.

Some of the blunders of young peo ple are to rush into the arena of life without the best possible preparation for the battle of the giants, especially such as a good education would give; to allow oneself to dntt on and taKe up a business, trade or profession in a haphazard way or to make choice of a life work without due consideration of the question of fitness or adaptation; in sane matrimonial alliances; short cuts to wealth, especially yielding to the in sane craze of gambling; living as if the making of money was the supreme thing. Rev. Dr. Polemus H. Swift. Methodist, Chicago. THE CHRISTIAN'S INHERITANCE. Recall to your mind, if you can, the most beautiful thing you have ever seen, the most exquisite sound you have ever heard, the grandest thing you have ever imagined. Intensify them a thousandfold if you please. Get all the pleasure out of them that it Is possible, but keep this thought uppermost in your "mind and let it control your every thought and sway your every action, that if you love and serve God in this life, in the . world to come, out of the immensity of his boundless love for you, the vision beau tiful will open up before your immortal gaze, beside which earth's paltry scenes and sounds will pale into utter insig nificance.

How proud she feels when the attempt to walk is begun so early as to evidence childish courage and sturdy strength. Such pride should be enjoyed by every mother. But it often happens that the child is trmia, weak and deficient in vitality, and clings to the mother's arms with no desire to walk or play. Mothers should learn that to have strong chil dren they must them selves be strong, for the cnud's strength is mother. O". The use of Dr. Pierce's .

He Goes in Search of a Quiet Summer Retreat " 'Eureka' signifies 'I have found It," doesn't it?" asked Mr. Bowser as he reached home the other evening with a smile on his face. "Yes, something like that. I believe," replied Mrs. Bowser. "Do you meaa you have found a new patent fire es cape ' or something new in gas burn ers?" "What I mean is this," he said as he produced a newspaper advertisment and placed it In her hands.. "We have been looking for some place out in the country where we could spend a week, and here I exclaim Erukea!" In other words, I have tumbled on a good thing and solved the problem. Read it." Mrs. Bowser read: ' " . " "Persons seeking for a homelike place in the country in which to pass a. few weeks should write to the Crow's Nest; large, airy rooms, pure air.spring water, fresh vegetables, eggs and milk, plenty of shade and homelike surroundings, table unsurpassed; no children or dogs taken; two minutes to the lake, five minutes to the postofnee; no mos quitoes, flies or malaria: croquet, golf. ping pong, etc.; terms, $6 per week. Well, what do you think of It? asK- ed Mr. Bowser as she returned the slip. I think it's a fraud," she replied. That's . you, of course. You see a fraud and a swindle in everything. I wouldn't have your suspicious nature for any money. What's wrong about this advertisement?" "It .promises too much for the money." . "I don't see it that way. Here are a farmer and his wife who are lonely for the society of nice people, and, being so situated that they can make a dozen or so comfortable, they are willing to do it without robbing them. Any one could tell by the very name that it was la nice place to go to I'll bet that farm er would DreaK ms Daca to maxe- nis boarders happy. How soon can you pack the trunks?" , .. "What for?" asked Mrs. Bowser. "Whyi to go out there, of course. We want two weeks off, and we have found the place. We needn't even, wait to write to them. We want those" airy rooms, cool breezes, fresh vegetables and eggs from the nests. I can almost imagine myself sailing o'er the placid waters of that lake this very minute. We ought to be able to get away by day after tomorrow. I can pack my own trunk tonight." , Mrs. Bowser wasn't obstinate, but she was firm. She refused to do any pack ing until Mr. Bowser had taken a run out to Crow's Nest and looked the place over. He at first flatly refused, arguing that no one would dare advertise like that unless things were all right, but finally decided to make the trip. While he was investigating she could be pack ing, and so no time would be lost. Dur ing the remainder of the evening he was in the highest spirits. He saw every feature of those homelike surroundings In his mind's eye, and over and over again he reposed In the shade of the pear trees or pulled a boat up and down the lake. Even in his sleep he was play ing croquet and hunting hens' nests, ' and his impatience was so great that he could hardly taste his breakfast. Mr. Bpwser got .away at an early hour, leaving instructions that the trunks should be packed during the day, and after a ride of two hours on the train he arrived at his destination. He was so good natured on the way that he passed over several little things of an unpleasant nature, and when he was finally dumped out at a country station the conductor had come to regard him as a kind hearted, mild tempered old gentleman. Crow's Nest loomed up half a mile away. It loomed from a sense of duty. If It hadn't loomed, there would have been nothing but a bob tailed cow and a stack of marsh hay to make up the scenery. The prospect didn't strike Mr. Bowser as a cheery one, but he plodded on through the dust of the highway until he reached , the house. He might have thought there was some mistake but for a man at the gate who answered his inquiry by re plying; "Yes; this is Crow's Nest Do you want board?" X ,wa9 a two story, unpainted and .un finished farmhouse- The shade was fur nished by four or five old plum trees, and there wasn't enough grass about the place to furnish a cow with ten good bites. The lake was behind the house, and it was a part of a marsh. ."Come in and see my rooms," suggested the man. who had a boil on his neck and a cloth tied around his head. In a dazed way Mr. Bowser followed him. There were five or six untenanted rooms. Some were plastered and some were not. All of them were airy because most of the window slaas wn )irvtu.-i The view from the front rooms took In the highway, an old barn and a field grown up to milkweeds. That from the back was composed of the marshy lake and an old horse standing on the shore and wonder ing whether he would better drink or not. "Come down and see my wife before vou decide." said the man, and Mr. Bowser followed him downstairs and into the kitchen and discovered a. redheaded, sharp nosed woman who was making ready to put a mustard plaster on her jaw to cure the toothache. "And now I'll introduce you to my boarder,?' said the owner of Crow's Nest, and he led the way to the bench under one of the plum trees where sat a sore eyed man, who rose up and said he had gained ten pounds in the last week. "Well, what room will you take,' and when can we expect you?" queried the host. . 1 "Say, now, this is a blamed fraud!" ex claimed Mr. Bowser' as he broke loose at last. - "What do you mean, sir?" "I mean that any man who will adver tise as you do and bring people to such a hole as this, ought to be booted all over the United States." (Copyright, 1902, by C. B. Lewis. 3 REMARKABLE CAVERN. From the World's Work. .' Santa Cruz is famous for its caves, one being without doubt the most remark' able cavern of the kind in this country. It is reached after passing a rough point. Point Diable, and1 from the ocean is seen to be a large black domelike object at the base of the mountain. Approaching the boat is forced through a thickly matted kelp, bed' and enters the cave, which is now seen to be made up of several large and lofty rooms. In the first two the walls are curiously decorated in all the colors of the rainbow, caused by chemical action. The boat is pushed into the sec ond and third chambers, drifting in water of a delicate green tint and remarkably clear.' the bottom covered with algae of many colors. Ahead is a black opening not much larger than the boat, through which the ground swell passes every few seconds, producing a pandemonium of sounds groans, roars, sucking, seething noises like the hissing of steam from some giantic caldron, accompanied by ex plosions, come rushing forth to warn and appall the mariner. But the boat is push ed on directly after the Ingress of a roller into the largest chamber of this wonder ful ocean cavern. It is absolutely dark except at the entrance, which now ap pears like a great star occasionally shut out as the waves come rolling in.
