At last it was tiino for Herr nicker to a<~t.

Of course, tins interview was asked just at the time when tiie old captain, his wife and I were about to start on our us:;al trip to sea.

Twm day) '.a:cr ;t was arranged that ? 'aptain Wohlsund should transfer his ownership of the boat to me, yet him :.'-'.f retaining t!ie license.

Twice a day I would go to sea; r.nce with my message and another time with either the proud old captain or Ills wife as my Ruest, to still convey the idea that the boat really belonged to them, and that I was only a friend. Straight out to sea I would head my iik tor-boat, running at top speed, si that a great cloud of white foam would hit the boat and ine as I made for my post-office. And how happy I felt ::i the sure expectation of being received once more at the Foreign Of fi c in the manner to \vhi*h I was ac customed in former days, before my failure in Mexico. Once when 1 reached my post-office I sighted a bobbing periscope. Quickly I deposited my precious information, and as quickly put about for port again. The marvelous speed of the motor-boat prevented anybody who might have noted my coming and go ing from realizing how far out to sea I bad been. My post-office service for F-boafs was splendidly initiated. From that time forward t was able to manage a service of news at least once a day. The results were suf ficient to justify ih* elaborate means 1 had adopted, llerr flicker even told me that immediate steps would be taken to introduce this submarine post-office system to other Scandinavian countries, and he even dreamed of its further Introduction in .South Ameri can countries, as many of the South American neutrals were supplying our enemies with food and other materials. Friendly ships henceforward ran the gantlet r>f our F-boats safely, wliii. those laden Willi enemy commodities met the destruction they so richly de served. Count Hernstorff shared with me the commendation of a grateful govern ment; and I felt that I had regained all the ground in llie service which I had lost in that unfortunate affair in Mexico.

This popular -work contains in formation for the young and old, male and female, single and mar ried, not heretofore published for the non-professional reader. Mr.:, akd Women are many times tempted to ask their family physi cians questions on delicate mat ters, but are deterred from so do ing by their sense of modesty. This work answers just such questions so fully and plainly as to leave no one in doubt. Anatomy, Physiology, Hygien-, The Human Temperaments, The, Origin and Transmission of Life, The Brain and Mind, are treated in an original and comprehensive manner, in harmony witli the latest scientific discoveries. The chapter on Nursing the Sick, a subject on which everyone should be informed, is alone worth many times the price of ?he book. The subject of Marriage, in its relation to the Welfare of Societj*, the Perpetu ation of the Species, and Incompatibility of Temperaments, is thoroughly dis cussed. A chapter on l"ir_.t Aid !o the injured, accidents and emergencies. The sufcjccts of Impediments to Marriage, Hygiene of the Organs, and the diseases that ariie from improper*living, should be read by all. It is a false modesty, productive 01 untold misery, that keeps such important information from the young. Even.* married couple and all who contemplate marriage should own '.his complete book oi life. This book formerly told for $1.50.
