I soon became export in running tho
boat, and greedily seized every oppor
tunity ? ?.?' practicing the inn iiiigemtnl
? if it.
Within cr.e week after my meeting
the old .-'?.v<-?lifi> captain and ltis wife
I had become as one of the family.
l'.\rr\ ti.ty, regularly, wc went (u sen,
a i?d during each trip I won Id stand on
tlio deck. in; hands on tho wheel as
though 1 was one of tiic members of
tho captain's family.
During these frequent voyages out
to i-ra wc would meet, many little naval
patrol boats, that con-Uaiitly sailed up
and down the coast. Finally, at I ha
end of about ten days, I was well
Known t> these young Swedish s?>a
m?n as an intimate friend of the
Wohlsund couple, and ihey all knew
thi! captain.
At last it was tiino for Herr nicker
to a<~t. A it had been arranged, one
day Herr Iticlcer brought a message to
Captain Wi.'iilstind thai it was the wish
oi < < urit liernstorfT thai he should
ir.e"t him at his hotel, as lie, the count,
had a very important proposal to make
to hini. Ii'rrr Hkker skillfully con
voyed tho idea to the captain that
'-'ou nt J-JernKtorff's purpose in asking
for the. interview was to make arrange
ments for the sale of liis two small
'?'nips to our country. 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.
Dressed for the occasion when i ap
peared as usual at the wharf, I found
Captain Wohlsund and h,.t wife jn a
great state of excitement. "What am
I to fin. counters? |fj3 Kxceilency.
Count Hernstorff, wishes to Fee me at
once at his hotel, what shall we do?"
"Vou cannot refuse to meet the
count, you must go at once to h!a
hotel." I said excitedly.
I would not listen to his entreaties
? o postpone our cruise for a few hours.
No, I would take the boat, and, proud
of her sex, his wife insisted that I
<ou!d manage the boat as well as the
captain. I.IMfn wc would not to post
poning our trip.
At the last moment Herr riick?r and
iii-? charmingly beautiful daughter ap
peared on the ppot. a rid insisted that
th'-v should accompany us on otir trip.
The ambitious wife of the captain was
certainly overjoyed to have such com
pany.

I :ia!l never forget the Joy of Die

J-'he had to be taken to the .small, \ery

Kicker tool. skillful care of that phase
'f the affair. II" saw to it that Frau
Welllstind did t) uy i(j the cabin. And
meanwhile i mot threr patrol boats
w ? -i <ttii.fr- -abit'-tl pir gallantly and
.??hou; cil "bravo."-.' a ml I : ailed directly
to where mjr buoy w a.- located.
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. I explained
;o him that utiles'; the nominal owner
shir1 remained- with him. I could not
tu:se freely out of the harbor, and
how 1 loved to go away out to sea.
W \N !?:?> t A I. TO It KA I,
\ !< TO It V 1'OIt CEBMAXV
From that time on I visited regu
larly our submarine post-otllce with the
messages to our brave F-bcat com
manders. who knew how to secretiy
com** out of the water and obtain the
!'->t r.f ships and how each one was to
be treated.
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.

KEEP LOOKING YOUNG
It's Easy?If You Know Dr.
Edwards' Olive Tablets
The secret of keeping young is to fee!
voting ? to do this you must watch your
liver and bowels ? there's no need of
having a sallow complexion ? dark rings
under your eyes ? pimples ? a bilious
look in your face ? dull eyes with no
sparkle. Your doctor will tell you ninety
per cent of all sickness comes from in
active bowels and liver.
Dr. Edwards, a well-known physician
in Ohio, perfected a vegetable com
pound mixed with olive oil to act on
the liver and bowels, which he gave to
his patients for years.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets, the substi
tute for calomel, are gentle in their action
yet always effective. They bring about
that exuberance of spirit, that natural
buoyancy which should be enjoyed by |
everyone, by toning up the liver and clear-'
ing the system of impurities.

?aathe mainstay of the whole per

playing is considered none can equal
the fact that a representative l.yric

performance. Perhaps when the com

look'- back on her former triumphs, she
ill not put last the fact that a Rich*

four curtain calls.
In contrast to this excellent act ther*
appeared one Prank O'Brien. who was
heralded on the bills as a ?'famous
tramp comedian." l.et us be charitable
and draw the veil over his wok at

would respectfully suggest that Rich
mond has materially changed sim e the
"famous tramp comedian" last visited

t'.ie city no longer relishes so much
as it did fifteen minutes of vulgarity
on a stretch.
The three remaining acts on the bill,
which may well lie considered as be
longing to the best of their kind, are
the performance of "The I.ittlc

Village Tinkers." which was uproar
iously received last night, and a well

A DOCTOR IN YOUR HOME!
This Common Sense Medical
Adviser contains 1,000 pages, 200
prescriptions, wood cuts, halt
tones and colored plates, and is
bound in cloth.
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.
