IF I COULD CHOOSE.
I would not dare, though it were offered me,
To plan my lot but for a single day,
So sure am I that all my life would be
Marked with a blot, in token of my sway.
But were it granted me this day to choose
One shining bead from the world's jeweled
Favor and fortune I would quiok refuse,
I grasp a richer and more costly thing.
With this brave talisman upon my breast,
I could be ruler of my rebel soul
To own this gem is to command the rest,
It is the Kohinoor called Self-control!
It is the wloket-gate to broad estates,
To peaceful slopes and mountains blue and
Calm-browed Content beyond its border waits,
And even Love sits in the sunshine there.
No sullen faces frown upon the street,
No grated windows, no grim prison walls
No clanking chains are bound on convicts' feet,
And on the ear no angry discord falls.
My life's swift river widens to the sea,
The careless babble or the brook is past
A few late roses blossom still for me,
But spring is gone, and summor can not last.
Had I begun with morning's rosy strength
To seek the flower that on life's summit
I might have found my edelweis at length,
And on the purple heights have gained re
But I have loitered, and the hour is late
Worn are my feet, and weary is my hand
I can but push ajar the massive gate,
I can but look into the Beulah land.
But, friends, if my poor love could have its
And blossom into blessing on each soul,
This is the very prayer that I should pray:

And They Both Agreed "Woes

'Dear me, I know he is just ready to
say it, and I can't see why he doesn 't

puckered up her lips into the sweetest
of all pouts and plied her needle more
rapidly than ever. "It does seem to

or a long time each had looked upon
the other with expressive eyes, and
though the gossi ps of that part of
Harlem looked upon the ending of
their courtship as a settled matter,
John had not asked the all-important
question. Mary's womanly intuition
prompted the thought th at he had
been trying to voice the love he so
often displayed, but his natural bash
fulness seemed an insurmountab le bar
So Miss Mary sat th at February aft
ternoon in her chair briskly rocking to
and fro. The afternoon was nearly
gone and the girl was impatiently
waiting for eight o'clock, when the
bashful John would arrive to take
her to the class in voc al music at the
church. Her heart beat fast as the
moments sped. Her rosy cheeks
flushed more deeply as her mind
dwelt upon the possible form of the
question that she felt must soon be
asked. She knew there would-be noth
ing romantic about John's asking, for
she was sure he would do so in a
blunderi ng way The thing that
troubled her most was that after he
really did muster up sufficient cour
age, her long knowledge of his pur
pose would prevent her showing a
proper amount of surprise and em
barrassment. Sh knew she would
blush, but she hoped it would be so
deep a blush that John could not fail
to see it.
She started suddenly, and her face
flushed with a feelings that there was a
tinge of immodesty and hypocrisy in
her train of thoughts. Sh felt guil ty
of being immodest in thinki ng of pro
posing herself and of hypocrisy in
hoping she would blush as though she
had not expected the question. Her
thoughts annoyed her, and failing to
drive them away as she sat sewing, she
laid down her work and busied herself
cleari ng up the room.
When the hour hand of the clock
reached eight the light ring of the
door-bell told her of John's arrival.
A he entered it could be seen that,
though his youthful face was suffused
with blushes, there was an unmistak
able air of manline ss about him.
When his brown eyes looked into
Mary's she felt so strong and confident
that her half-uttered thoughts during
he afternoon of taking advantage of
the season to render a little assistance

was oppressed with the thought that if
he had asked her then she really
would not have blushed. Then she
tried to drive away the thought with a
mighty effort as her old feeling of im
modesty and hypocrisy came to her,
and the crimson flush covered her face
as she saw that John was tryi ng to say
A few minutes later the two were
carefully walking along the icy side

They discussed the weather and everv

John was equally successful until they
Bang the strain:

Then it suddenly dawned upon him
how easy it would bo to say: "Mary,

couldn't dismiss it from his mind all
the evening. Every now and then, to his
great embarrassment, he got out oJ

fessor noticed it each time, and in a
kindly tone offered a suggestion which
increased John's confusion. There was
no one in the class gladder than John

to go home. They picked their way

that he had be en particularly stupid
during the whole evening, and he was
repeating the sentence: "Mary, let us
share our mutual woes," so that when
they stood beneath the light in the
parlor he could put his arm around
her and say it without blundering.
Ma ry was silent with expectation.
How brief a sentence would have
made them supremely happ y!
John's absent-mindedness proved to
distract his attention from the icy
walk mo re than he should have al

times Mai-y's feet slipped, but each
time she found herself borne up by her
sturdy lover. Each slip was accom

was again safe her soft laugh was

A group of boys pulling a sled

termined that he should reap no ad
vantage from her remarks.
John made several efforts to recall
the opportunity, but was baffled every
time. Then he determined to wait un

but when they reached the parlor the
light seemed more brightly than ever

What's the Matter With Your Blood?
A much blood goes through the kidneys
as goes through the heart.
There is nothing startling about this fact
except it be a revelation. Many people have
but a dim idea of the real work of the kid
neys. They not only drain the water from
the system, but also the poisonous matter
which that water holds in solution to carry
out of the syBtem. Over half the time, how
ever, the kidneys fail to do this work.
What is the result?
Gradual failure of strength and health
end eventually death by Bright's Disease
or some unexpected kidney disease.
But particularly in the spring of the year,
when one's blood is filled with poisonous
waste, as it invariably is at that time, you
feel depressed, tired, languid, do not seem
to have any disease, but your system does
not respond to the genial warmth of sum
mer and spring as formerly.
You had better look out!
The kidney poison is accumulating in the
blood. Tonics won't do any good, they simp
ly treat effects. Yo can only secure a
radical, thorough renovation of the system
by the prompt use of Warner's safe Cure,
which is the only reliable, scientific specific
for the blood, because it is the only known
specific in the world for the kidneys, which
are the only great blood purifiers.
GEO. F. RIDGEWAT, 98 Murisou St., Cleveland,
O., Ex-Deputy Sheriff, from uric acid poison
ing of the blood became, at times, totally
blind, and was troubled with great giddi
ness. In 1883, after suffering for many years,
and being distressed beyond measure, he
thoroughly purified his blood by means of
Warner's Safe Curo, and says: "I have nev
er had a day's trouble since, and have fully
recovered my health. Warner's Safe Cure
saved my life."
REV. J. P. ARNOLD, of Camden, Tenn., in '78
and'81 was grievously afflicted with many
abscesses, caused by kidney poisoned blood.
The abscesses were alive for many months
and caused great distress. After thoroughly
purifying his blood with Warner's Safe Cure
in 1883, he reported that in 1888 he was strong
and well, over 71 years of age, and able to
CAPT. W. D. ROBINSON, United States Marine
Inspector for the chain of lakes, residence
Buffalo, N. Y., in 1881 had a slight eruption
on his hands. It soon spread,to his face and
he was almost blind. His body was covered
with light, flaky scales. His skin itched ex
cruciatingly. For two years he gradually
grew worse, trying almost everything imag
inable. In 1883, after having given up hope of
recovery, he began using Warner's Safe Cure.
"Twenty bottles," he says, "completely cured
me, and to day I am strong and well as ever."
JAMES WIGHT, 396 Fifth Ave., New York, suf
fered for years from Inflammatory rheuma
tisma blood disorderbut in 1883 was fully
restored to health by Warner's Safe Cure and
remains well to-day.
The four above cases are as good as a
million. They prove what is stated, that
the organ that removes the impurity from
the blood most effectually is the kidney,
and for this when impaired there is but one
sound, rational method of treatment.
Dr. Dio Lewis, who was opposed to the
use of medicines in general, thought so
highly of this remedy that he said if he had
a serious kidney disease, he should use it.
