Some months ago, on leaving the heated work room to run across the street on an errand, he was caught out in the rain. The result was that when ready to go home that night he was unable to walk, owing to ihflamma tory rheumatism. He was taken home, nnd on arrival was placed in front of a good fire and thoroughly rubbed with Chamberlain's Pain Balm. During the evening and night he was repeatedly bathed with this liniment, and by morn ing was relieved of all theumatio pains, He now takes especial pleasure in prais ing Chamberlain's Pain Balm, and always keeps a bottle of it in the house.

Nobody but a greenhorn would give a thousand fur that hole in the ground as it stands. We've got to close with him, that's all of it, and, for my part, I'm done with mines and mining. I'll strike back for the old farm as soon as I get $500 safe in my pocket. " "We've concluded to take you up,' said Homer Craft, the bigger and bluff er of the two men, when it oame to the final transactions, "but I feel it in my bones that we are doing a mighty fool ish thing. If I hadn't agreed with Wil lard here not to hold out beyond this date, I d go back on the bargain now. was a fool not to stand out in black and white for a couplo of thousand more in case you strike it rich before our tracks are cold. " This was only intended to keep the newoomer up to the mark, as Willard very well knew; but the buyer's sympa thy was touched, and he answered ear nestly: "I give yon my word, gentlemen, in a oase like that I should offer a bonus in proportion' to the value of your work in the mine. As it is, I am putting every dollar I can command into this venture, and if my luck runs as yours did 1 11 be worse off than you are, as I have a wife down in Denver depending on me. " It was late in tho day when the trans- fer was made, but the new proprietor pulled off his coat and went to work as soon as his predecessors left the mine. He tamped in the chargo of giant powder and set it off, working awk wardly, as one unused to such labor, and undoubtedly he failed to step back to a safe distance, for the exploding blast caught him and killed him in stantly. The two miners, packing their few belongings in the little cabin near the tunnel, heard the reverberation and looked at each other. "If he don't strike a load, it won't be because he's stingy of powder, " said Craft dryly. "Come along, Willard, let's see what the fool has done. " There was a moment of blank dismay when they saw what had occurred. 'men uratt swooped down to grope among the broken ore, while he turned an excited fact) toward his companion "Look here, Willard I Look here! It's the leadl the lead! I say, it's a lucky matter that no one in the camp knows we made the transfer I" "Why?" asked Willard, with dry Md trembling lips. "Because we'll just retransfer it, that's why. Here is tho deed in his socket. It is no robbery to take it back and put his thousand in its plaoe. A thousand! I wouldn't take $10,000 now no, nor $30,000 for my share. Why, Willard, it's richer than we ever hoped. It's a plain intervention of Providence in our behalf. To think bow near we came to cheating ourselves!" And Willard, faebly protesting, al lowed himself to be overruled by his tronger minded partner, but bis con science was sore over that breach of faith. No one appeared to claim the $1,000 which the stranger left, though it was advertised in the Denver papers, and ho was soon forgotten by all except Wil lard, whom remorse preyed npon, but not to the extent of prompting him to restitution until it was too late. He was seized with a chill one day while at work and the next was on his back, raving with mountain fever. It was known very soon that he could not recover. 'It's the evil that has come of our treachery, -Craft, and it will come on you, too, if yon don't make restitution. They that are near to death see blearer than the living, and I tell you that I won't rest quiet in my grave unless yon hunt up that woman and give her baok her own. If you lie to me, Craft, if yon promise to do that and fail, I tell yon that my footsteps snail haunt yon till the day of your death. " He had promised simply to quiet Wil lard and hod no intention of keeping! that promise. In due time the fever did its work, and Willard was laid at rest in the apology for a cemetery. Croft seemed to be the only claimant for his partner's earthly belongings, and he availed him self of his opportunity. While at work one day in the mine. now panning ont in great shape, there was a premature blast, which those who heard it believed had ended Craft's ca reer. ; Yet amid the shower of bursting rook which fJtW all around him he suffered nothing but a few scratches, though the force of the explosion threw him back violently, and his head rang with the thundering uproar. He staggered out of the tunnel to find himself surrounded by a startled crowd, whose fears were relieved by finding no worse disaster. There was a woman among them who was a stranger in theoamp, having only arrived the day before, who lingered when the others dropped away one by one. "Let mo dress the scratches, please. I have court plaster here. I want to do it," with a petulant childishness as he objected. After all, she seemed more child than woman as he observed her more olosely. "I want to do it, because" in an awed tone "they tell me my husband came to his death in that way. Wasn't that dreadful? And he never got rich, nevor made money enough to pay back that $1,000 he borrowed and take care of me as he promised, but it seems too bad, for they say if he had just lived another day he would have owned the best mine here. The bargain was all made just waiting to be finished. Don't you think that is hard on me?" It did not need the name to tell him that she was the stranger's wife nor much of her artless ohatter to put him in possession of all the circumstances of her case how it had been love at first sight and hasty marriage between the young pair without counting the oost; how the old invalid grandfather, who was her only relative, had advanoed the capital out of his own small store and the young husband had started out to conquer fate; bow they had waited, hoped and feared, till sickness and trouble brought them to such absolute want that she had started out to trace a rumor for she read few papers and so missed the news they would have told and now at last how the htory had ended here. With his wealth it would be no great trouble to win her, he thought. His wealth! If that fool Willard were living he might say it was hor wealth, but Craft knew enough to guard that secret, un lessah, unless those steps which fol lowed aftor him were the ghostly haunt to wring it from him, for he had heard them first when no one was near. He heard the measured tramp, tramp now, and he dwelt upon that thought, and he blanched lest others should hear it as it followed him day and night. He tried by force to shut his ears and keep the sound out, but only let him press his hand to his' head or barricade his ears with pillows and the ghostly tramp, tramp threatened him a thousand times louder than before. Every one in the camp noticed some thing wrong with him. t He was not himself, they said. He was off his balance, and the girl could do better than marry n man whose symptoms pointed toward an insane asylum before long. But she did marry him, and turning over things in the cabin soon afterward sho found a paper which Willard had hidden away. It was the deed of sale, and writtun on it in Willard's hand: "Delivered, but stolen back from the dead man's pocket by Craft. The mine was his legally, as I hope to be forgiven for my share in the theft. " No ono over knew just what passed between Craft and his wife. It was Bill Banks who came along just us Craft rushed out into tho twi light, muttering orazily: "Those steps I'll end them!" And with the words he sent a bullet through his head. As to tho money and tho mine, of course the woman got both without legal trouble, but it was as heir to her first husband, not as Craft's widow, that she put in her claim. Boston Transcript. The Lost lee Ax. The valley above San Damiano is beautiful with a rare loveliness. Debris from tho hillsides onco filled the floor across and made a wide fiat area. Through the deep bed of conglomerate thus formed the river has again cut a gorge, within which it gracefully winds. In long green or wooded slopes the mountains spread down on either side to the fertile valley floor, villages are planted on the edge of the lower ravine, the sides of wbioh are preoipitous, with birch trees growing on their ledges, now and then a waterfall leaping down over them. The floor of the ravine again is flat, with grass lawns of wonderful ver dure, contained by the loops of the clear and hurrying waters. As we drove along, gazing at the se ries of beautiful pictures thus revealed to us, we turned a corner, and a long tendril of wild rose in full blossom reached out from the rocks on our right and arched the picture in. So entranced were we that an ice ax, my companion for 18 summers, leaped out of the car riage, and I did not miss it till we reached the trysting plaoe, where our men awaited us. Aymonod went back a mile or so -to look for it. He met some peasants and asked them if they had seen such a thing in the way. "Yes," they answered, "lying in the middle of the road." "Why did you not pick it up, then?" "Oh, why should we? It Was not ours," and the next man we met said the same. "We saw it and left it. It was not ours.

In this cent ury of enlight enment, we have Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pel lets, which cure all liver. stomach and bowel derange ments in the most effective way. Assist Nature little now and then, with a gentle, cleansing laxative, thereby removing of fending matter from the stomach and bowels, toning up and invigorating the livei and quickening its tardy action, and you thereby remove the cause of a multitude of distressing diseases, such as headaches, indigestion, or dyspepsia, biliousness, pimples, blotches, eruptions, boils, constipation,- piles, fistulas and maladies too numerous to mention. If people would pay more attention to properly regulating the action of their bowels, they would have less fre quent occasion to call for their doctor's services to subdue attacks of dangerous diseases. That, of all known agents to accom plish this purpose, Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are unequaled, is proven by the fact that once used, they are always in favor. Their secondary effect is to keep the bowels open and regular, not to fur ther constipate, as is the case with other pills.

"I really must bo In a bad dream, "said Mr. Delmaine, staring nt bis pretty daugh ter Leslie as if sho wore some startling freak of the entomological kingdom. "Base child, do I understand you aright? Have you actually promised to wed this penniless nrlist you, the sole heiress of half a million?" "I actually have," confessed Leslie, with eyes a-droop. "Then go!" he said, striking an atti tude which would have disgraced Salvini himself. "Go, marblo hearted and unfeel ing daughter go with the man of your ohoice! What is It to you that I have an organlo affection which renders excite ment fatal that may" "Ob, papa!" cried Leslie, making a rush in his direction. But loftily he waved her back. "Depart!" he resumed. "Abide by your ohoice. You are no longer a child of mlno. Away with the centless one who has won you from my arms! Do not speak to met Do not address me! Leave me to perish alone with this fatal organic" Earl Palmer, the "contlessone" referred to,seizod Leslie's hand at this juncture and drew her toward tho door. "Oh, hasten! Oh, lot us not linger! Oh, fly let us fly for we mUBt!" he quoted in seeming terror. Before tho old gentleman could finish his interrupted sentence they wore both outside, and Leslie was clinging to her lover's arm, half in tears, half In laugh ing, "Come, darling, he has given his con sent, and we may as well bo married at once,." said Earl. "His eccentricities will strike in and kill him somo day instead of that 'organic affection' on which he harps. Was he over illf" "Never," answered Leslie solemnly. "His health Is perfect. I hoped he would reoclve the news of our engagement differ ently, Earl. He likes you, but he likes to show his authority. He does not droum I would ever take him at his word. I've a notion to elope with you since he has ordered me to depart just to teach him a lesson." Noodloss to say the plnn met with Earl's unqualified approval, and in less than an hour's time the elopement was an accom plished fact. A brief note' to Mr. Delnmine apprising him of the affair was dropped into a postbox, and thon Mr. and Mrs. Pnlmor took possession of a wee cozy cot tage in tho suburbs of Omaha far from tho madding crowd. Earl had a studio down town. Though ho had as yet nttainod no startling degree of success In his choson profession, he was an artist of rare talent and had his pa trons. It was somewhat lonely for Leslie, left to her own dovlces all day, but she busied herself with household affairs and was very happy. No word came from her father in his great lonely house up town. Ho had apparently forgotten hor very ex istence. One evening, a month aftor their mar riage, Earl oame home to And his little wifo In a state of high excitement. "Oh, Earl," she said eagerly, "such a queer old organ grinder stopped in front of the house today and played that little Italian air you always liked so woll. I threw him a quarter, and what do you think? He let it lie in the road and asked me in the queer est choked voice for a glass of water. I went to the kitchen to get it, and when I camo back he was standing in the parlor looking at papa's picture over there. I tell you I was frightened." " Whotdidyou do?" askod her husband, looking startled. "I told, him to go at once, and he step pod outside and playod Byron's 'Fare well, ' thon waved his dirty hand and went away. Why, Earl, what is it?" sho broko off as the young man plckod up a scrap of green paper from tho floor and eyed It incredulously. "A $50 bill," he gasped, holding it up to view. "Your orgau grinder is a ras cally counterfeiter, Leslie, dear, and is try ing to get us into trouble. I'll give this to an expert tomorrow." He did so, and to his astonishment found the note genuine. On his roturn that night Leslie met him with nn ac count of a second visit from tho organ grinder and showed him a second note she had found on tho doorstop, hold In place by a small stone. It was for $100 this time, and Earl noarly fainted with sur prise. "An old Italian throwing monoy round after that fashion!" ho ejaculated, sink ing into a chair and drawing Leslie down on his kneo. "Ho must bo a prince In disguise. See how true goodness Is re warded, darling. Wo obayed tho diotates of our hearts and gut married, and now that our father has forsaken us, lo, an or gan grinder takes us up. But organ grind ers who go round dropping $100 notes are dangerous customers. I shall stay ut home with you tomorrow and intorvlew the mysterious old fellow if ho conies again." He was as good as his word, but tho day wore on without a sign of tho musical Itin erant. They had givon hlm up at last and stood together at tho parlor window watching tho fires of sunset In the west. An odd, choked cough startled them, and both turned to And the identical organ grinder, who had, unporcelved, ontored tho open door of the parlor and stood grinning at them. "Out with you I" was all Earl oould say in a voice of fierce indignation. The venerable offonder answered by dropping his organ, seizing the astonished Leslie in his arms and kissing her in a most.
