( THE" PITTSBUBG-"" DISPATCH; ,SATUKDAY, ' JUNE 29, 1889. V 10 T&- proving the occasion, in spite of the doctor's injunctions, vanished when she saw Ruth's white face on the pillow. Noiselessly she placed the little table close to the bed, and put the cup upon it. Buth opened her eves as she did so. " "Here is some tea, dearie," Hesba said, softly. "I will put it down here, and you can drink it when you feel inclined." Buth murmured "Thank you," and Hesba stooped over her and kissed her cheek more softly than she had ever done before, and then went quietly out of the room again. "She looks worse than I thought for, Hiram," she said, as she proceeded to help the little servant they kept to lay the cloth lor dinner. "I doubt she's more hurt than the doctor thinks. I could see there were tears on her cheek, and Buth was never one to crv, not when she was hurt ever so much. Of course, it may be because she is low and weak; still I tell you that I don't like it Is the doctor coming again?" "Yes; he said he would look in again this evening." "I don't like it," Hesba repeated, "and after dinner I will put on my bonnet and go down to the doctor myself and hear what he has got to say about her. Perhape he will tell me more than he would yeu; he knows wnat poor creatures men are. They just get lightened out of what wits they've got, if you let on any one's bad; but I will get it out of him. It frets me to think I wasn't here when she was brought in instead of having strangers messing about her." It came into Hiram's mind to retort thst her being away at that moment was a spe cial warning against her going to Dareport, but the low, troubled voice in which she spoke, and the furtive passing of her hand across her cheek to brush away a tear, ef fectually silenced him. It was all so unu sual in the case of Hesba, whom, indeed, he had never seen so soft and womanly since the first dav she bad crossed the threshold of the door, that he was at once touched and alarmed. "I hope you are wrong, wife; I hope you are wrong," he said, putting his hand on her shoulder. "I don't think the doctor thought badly of it, but he seemed puzzled like. I thought; but if there's trouble, Hesba, we will bear it together, you and I; it's sent for good, we both know that. We goes the same way, you know, wife, if we don't go by the same road." The woman made no answer. That mo ment the girl appeared with the dinner. Hesba ate but a lew mouthfuls, aud then saying sharply that she had no appetite, rose from the table, put on her bonnet and shawl, and, without a word, walked out She was away longer than Hiram ex pected, and in the meantime he had toan swer the questions of many of the neigh bors, who, having heard from the woman who had been called in of Buth's accident, came to learn tbe particulars. When Hesba returned she brought a bundle with her. "The doctor's coming in an hour," she said. "I didn't get much out of him, ex cept he said it had been a shock to her sys tem, and he was afraid that there might be slight concussion of the brain. Ho said if that was so Me should want some ice to put to her head, and I hare been up to The Hold and seen Miss Carne. I had heard Buth say they always have ice up there, and she has given me some. She was just coming down to inquire about Buth, but of course I told hershecouldn'ttalk to nobody. That was the doctor's orders. Has she moved since I have been away?" Hiram shook his head. "I have been up twice, but she was just lying with her eyes closed." "Well, I will go and sit up there," said Hesba. "Tell that girl if she makes any noise, out of the house she goes; and the best thing you can do is to take your pipe and sit in that arbor outside, or walk up and down if you can't keep yourself warm; and don't let anyone come knocking at the door and -worriting her. It will be worse for them if I has to come down." Hiram Powlett obeyed his wife's parting injunction and kept on guard all the after noon, being absent from his usual place in church for the first time lor years. In the evening there was nothing for him to do in the house, and his wife being upstairs, he followed his usual custom of dropping for half an hour into the snuggery at the Carne Arms. "Yes, it's true," he said in answer to the questions of his cronies, "Buth hashad a bad fall, and the doctor this afternoon sap as she has got a slight concussion of the brain. He said ke hoped she would get over it, but he looked serious like when he came down stairs. It's a bad affair, I expect. But she is in God's hau'dsj and a better girl never stepped, though I says it." There was a murmur of regret and consolation among the four smokers, but they saw that Hiram was too upset for many words, and the con versation turned into other channels for a time, Hiram taking no share in it, but smoking silently. "It's a rum thing," he said presently, during a pause in the conversation, "that a man don't know really about a woman's nature, not when he has lived with her for years and Tears, Now there's my wile Hesba, who has got a tongue as sharp as anyone in this village." A momentary smile passed round tbe circle, lor the sharp ness ot Hesba Powlett's tozgae was notori ous. "It scarce seemed to me, neighbors, as she had cot a soft side to her or that she cared more for Buth than she did for the house dog. She always did her dutv by her, I will say that for her, and a tidier woman and a better housewife there ain't in the country round. But duty is one thing and love is another. .Now you would hardly believe it, but I do think that Hesba feels this business as much as I do. You wouldn't have knowed her; she goes about the house withier shoes off as quiet as a mouse, and she speaks that soft and gentle you wouldn't know it was her. Women's queer creatures anyway." There was a chorus of assent to the propo sition, and indeed the discovery that Hesba Powlett had a soft side to her nature was astonishing. i or three days Jiuth Powlett lay uncon scious, and theu quiet and good nursing and the ice on her head had their effect, and one evening the doctor, on visiting her, said that he thought a change had taken place, and that she was now sleeping natu rally. The next morning there was con sciousness in her eyes when she opened them, and she looked in surprise at the room darkened by a curtain pinned across the window, and at Hesba, sitting by ' her bedside with a huge nightcap on herhead. -Whatis it, mother.wbathas happened?" "You have been ill, Buth, but thank God you are better now. Don't talk, dear, and don't worry. I have got some beef-tea warming by the fire; the doctor said you were to try and drink a cup when you woke, and then go off to sleep again." Buth looked with a feeble surprise after Hesba as she left the room, missing the sharp, decisive foot-tread. In a minute she returned as noiselessly as she had gone. "Can vou hold the cup yourself. Buth, or shall I leed you?" Buth put out her hand, but it was too weak to hold the cup. She was able, how ever, slightly to raise her head, and Hesba held the cup to her lips. "What have you done to your feet, mother?" she asked, as she finished the broth. "I have left my snoes down stairs, Bnth, the doctor said you were to be kept quiet; now try to go to sleep, that's a dear." She stooped and kissed the girl affection ately, and Buth, to her surprise, felt a tear drop on her cheek. She was wondering over this strange circumstance when she again fell asleep. In a few days she was about the house again, but she was silent and grave, and did not gain strength as fast as the doctor iad hoped for Howeyer, int three weeks' time she was well enough to return to The Hold. Hiram had strongly remonstrated against her doing so, but she seemed to set her mind upon it, urging that she would be better for having something to think about and do than in remaining idle at home; and, as the doctor was also of opinion that the change would be rather likely to benefit than to do her harm, Hiram cave way. The day before she left she said to her father: -" "Do you know whether George Forester has been caught, or whether he has got away?" "He has not been caught, Buth, but I 'don't think he has .gone away. There is a Iftalkin the village that he has been hidintr yjfowa at Dareport, and'theconstable has fone over there several times, but he can't nd signs of him. I think he must be mad to stay so near when he knows he is wanted. I can't think what is keeping him." "I have made up my mind, father, to give him up. You have been right, and I know now he wonld not make me a good husband; buVplease don't say anything against him; it is hard enough as it is." Hiram kissed his daughter. "Thank God for that. news, Buth. I hoped, after that poaching business, you would se: it in that light and that he wasn't fit for a mate for one like you. Your mother will be glad, child. She ain't like the same woman as she was, is she?" "No, indeed, father; I do not seem to know her." "I don't know as I was ever so knocked over in my life as I was yesterday, Buth, when your mother came down stairs in her bonnet and shawl, and said, 1 am going to church with yon, Hiram.' I didn't open my lips until we were half way, and then she said as how it had been borne in on her as how her not being here when you was brought in was a judgment on her for being away at,Dareport instead of being at church with us; and &he said .more than that, as how, now she thought over it, she saw as she hadn't done right by me and you all these years, and hoped to make a better wife what time she was left to us. I wasn't sure all church time as it wasn't a dream to see her sitting there beside me, and joining in the hymns, listening attentive to the parson as she has always been running down. She said on tbe way home she felt just as she did when she was a girl, five and twenty years ago, and used to come over here to church, afore she took up with the Hethodies." Buth kissed her father. "Then my fall has done good after all," she said. "It makes me happy to know it." "I shall be happy when I see you quite yourself again, Buth. Come back to us soon, dear." "I will, father; in the spring I will come home again for good, I promise you," and so' Buth returned for a time to The Hold. "I am glad you are back again, Buth," Hiss Carne, who had been down several times to see her, said.' "I told you to not hurry yourself, and I would have done with out you for another month, but you know I am really very glad to have you back again. Mary managed my hair very well, but I could not talk to her as I do to you." Buth had not been in the house many hours before she learnt from her fellow ser vant that Mr. Gulston had been two or three times over since the shooting party, and that the servants in general had an opinion that he came over to see Miss Carne. "It's easy to see that with halt an eye," one of the girls said, "and I think Miss Margaret likes him too, and no wonder, for a properer looking man is not to be seen; but I always thought she would have married her cousin. Everyone has thought so for years." "It's much better she should take the sailor gentleman," one of the elder women said. "I am not saying anything against Mr. Bonald, who js as nice a young gentle man as one would want to see, but he is her cousin, and I don't hold to marriage among cousins anyhow, and especially in a family like ours." , "I think it isbetter for us not to talk about it at all," Buth said, quietly; "I don't think it right and proper, and it will be quite time enough to talk about Miss Margaret's affairs when we know she is engaged." The others were silent for a minute after Buth's remark, and then the under-house-maid, who had been an old playmate of Buth, said: "You never have ideas like other people, Buth Powlett It is a family thing, and we can't say a word about people in the house witboutbeing snapped up." "Buth is right" the other said, "and yonr tongue runs too fast, Jane; as Bnth says, it will be quite time enough to talk when Miss Margaret is engaged; till then, the least said the better." In truth, Lieutenant Gulston had been several times at The Hold, and Lis friend the doctor, seeing his admonition had been altogether thrown away, avoided the sub ject, but from his gravity of manner showed that he had not forgotten it; and he shook his head sadly when one afternoon the lieu tenant had obtained leave until the follow ing day. "I wish I had never spoken. Had I not been an old fool I should have known well enough that he was fairly taken by her. We have sailed together for 12 years, and now there is an end to our friendship. X hope that will be all, and that he will not have reason to be sorry that he did not take my advice and drop it in time. Of courp she may have escaped, and I think that she has done so; but it's a terrible risk terrible. I would give a year's pay that it shouldn't have happened." An hour before Lieutenant Gulston left his ship Bonald Mervyn had started for The Hold. A word that had been said bv a young officer of the flagship who was dining at mess had caught his ears. It was con cerning his first lieutenant. ' "He's got quite afishingmania at present, and twice a week he goes off for the day to some place 20 miles away Carnesford. I think it is. He does not seem to have much luck; anvhow, he never brings any fish home. He is an awfully good fellow, Gul ston; the best first lieutenant I ever sailed with by a long way.?' What Bonald Mervyn heard was not' pleasant to him. He had noticed the at tentions Gulston had paid to Margaret Carne at the ball, and had "been by no means pleased at meeting him installed at The Hold with the shooting party, and the thought that he had been twice a week over in that neighborhood caused an angry sur prise. The next morning he therefore tele graphed home for a horse to meet him at the station, and started as soon as lunch was over. He stayed half an hour at home, for his house lay on the line between the sta tion and Carne's Hold. The answer he re ceived from his sister to a question he put did not add to his good temper. Ob,jes. Mr. Gulston had called a day or two alter he had been to the shooting party, and they had heard he had been at The Hold several times' since. When he arrived there, Bonald found that Margaret and her brother were both in the drawing room, and he stood chatting with them there for some time, or rather chatting with Margaret, for Reginald was dull and moody. At last the latter saun tered away. "What is the matter with you, sir?" Margaret said to her cousin. "You don't seem to be quite yourself; is it the weather? Beginald is duller and more silent than usual; has hardly spoken a word to-day." "No, it's not the weather"- he replied sharply. "I want to ask you a question, Margaret" "Well, if vou ask it eivillv " the rfrl re plied, "I will answer it, but certainly not otherwise." "I hear that that sailor fellow has been coming here several times. What does it mean?" Margaret Carne threw back her head haughtily. "What do you meau, Bonald, by speaking in that tone; are you out of your mind?" "Not more than the family in general," he replied grimly; 'but you have not answered my question." "I have not asked Lieutenant Gulston what he comes here for," she said coldly; "and besides, I do not recognize your right to ask me such a question." "Not recognize my -right," he repeated passionately. "I should have thought that a man had every right to ask such a ques tion of the woman he is going to marry. "Going to marry," she repeated scorn fully; "at any rate this is the first I have heard of it" "It has always been a settled thing," he said, "and you know it as well as I do. You promised me ten years' ago that you would be my wife some day." "Ten years ago I was a mere child. Bonald, how can you talk like thisl You know we have always been as brother and sister together. I have never thought of anything else of late. You have been home four or five months, anyhow, and you have had plenty of time to speak if you wanted to. You never said a word to lead me to believe that you tbonght of me in any other way than as a cousin. "I thought we understood each other, .Margaret" ' . vr VI though?), too," the girl replied, "but not in the same way.i--Oh,Bbnald, don't say this; we have alwavs been such friends, and perhaps years ago I mighthave thought it would be somethiug more; but since then I have grown up and grown 'wiser, and even if I had loved you in the way you speak of, I would not have married you, because I am sure it would be bad for us both. We have both that terrible curse in our blood, and if there was not another man in the world I would not marry you." "I don't believe you would have said so a month ago," Bonald Mervyn said, look ing darkly at her. "This Gulston has come between us, that's what it is, and you can not deny it." "You are not behaving like a gentleman, Bonald," the girl said quietly.' ''You have no right to say such things." "I have a right to say anything," he burst out "You have fooled me and spoilt mv life, but you shall regret it You think after all these years I am to be thrown by like an old glove. No, by Heaven, you may throw me over, but I swear you shall never marry this sailor or any "one else, whatever I do to prevent it. You say I have the curse of the Carnes in my blood. You are right, and you shall have cause to regret it." He leapt from the window, which Mar garet had thrown open a short time before, for the fire had overheated the room, ran down to the stables, leapt on his horse, and rode off at a furious pace. Neither he nor Margaret had noticed that a moment before a man passed along the walk close under the window. It was (Lieutenant Gulston. He paused for a moment as he heard his name uttered in angry tones, opened the ball door without' ceremony, and hurried toward that of the drawing room. Beginald Carne was standing close to it, and it'flashed across Gulston's mind that he had been listening. He turned his head at the sail or's quick step. "Don't go in there just at present, Gulston, I fancy Margaret is hav ing a quarrel with her cousin. They are quiet now, we had best leave them alone." "He was using very strong language," the sailor said, hotly. "I caught a word or two as I passed the windows." "It's a family failing. I fancy he has gone now. I will go in and see. I think it were best for you to walk off for a few min utes, and then come back again. People may quarrel with their relatives, you know, but they don't often care for other people to be behind the scenes." "No; quite right," Gulston answered; "the fact is, for the moment I was fairly fright ened by the violence of his tone, and really feared that 'he was going to do something violent It was foolish, of course, and I really beg your pardon. Yes, what you say is quite right If you will allow me I will have the horse put in the trap again. I got out at the gate and walked across the gar den, telling the man to take the horse straight'round to the stables; but I think I had better go and come again another day. After such a scene as she has gone through, Miss Carne will not care about having a stranger here." "No, I don't think that would be best," Beginald Carne said. "She would wonder why you did not come, and ' would, likely enough, hear from her maid, that you had been and gone away again; and might guess you had heard something of the talking in there. No, I think you had better do as I said go away, and come again in a few minutes." The lieutenant accordingly went out and walked about the shrubbery for a short time, and then returned. Miss Came did not appear at dinner, but sent down a mes sage to say that she had so bad a headache that she found she' would not be able to ap pear that evening. Beginald Carne did not play the part of nost so well as usual. At times ne was gloomy and abstracted, and then he roused himself and talked rapidly. Lieutenant Gulston thought that he was seriously dis comrjosed at the Quarrel between his sister and his cousin, and he determined at any rate not to take the present occasion to carry out tbe intention he had formed of telling Beginald Carne that he was in love with his sister and hoped that he would have no objection to his telling her so, as he had a good income beside his pay as first lieuten ant When the men had been sitting silently for some time after wine was put on the table, he said: "I think, Carne, I will not stop here to night Your sister is evidently quite upset with this affair, and no wonder. I shall feel myself horribly de trop, and wonld rather come again some other time, if you will let me. It you will let your man put a horse in the trap I shall catch the 10 o'clock train comfortably." "Perhaps that would be best, Gulston. I am not a very lively companion at the best of times, and family quarrels are unpleas ant enough for a stranger." A few minutes later Lieutenant Gulston was oc his way to the station. He had much to think about on his way home. In one respect he had every reason to he well satisfied with what he had heard, as it had left no doubt whatever in his mind that Margaret Carne had refused the offer of her cousin, and that the latter had believed that he had been refused because she loved him, Charlie Gulston. Ot course she had not said so; still she could not have denied it, or her cousin's wrath would not have been turned upon him. Then he was sorry that such a quarrel had taken place, as it would probably lead to a breach between the two families. He knew Margaret was very fond of her aunt and the igirls. Then the violence with which Bon ald Mervyn had spoken had caused him a deal of uneasiness; was it possible that a sane man would have gone on like that? Was it possible that the curse of the Carnes was still working? This was an unpleasant thought, but that which followed was still more anxious. Certainly, from the tone of his voice, he had believed that Bonald Mervyn was on the point of using violence to Margaret, and if the man was really not altogether right in his head there was no saying what he might do; as for himself, he laughed at the threats that had been uttered against him. Mad or sane, he had not the slightest fear of Bonald Mervvn. But if, as was likely enough, this mail-brained fellow tried to fix a quarrel upon him in some public way, it might be horribly unpleasant, so unpleasant that he did not care to think of it. He con soled himself by hoping that when Mervyn's first burst of passion had calmed down he might look at the matter in a more reason able light, and see that at any rate he could not bring about a public quarrel without Margaret's name being: in some way drawn into it; that her cousin could not wish, however angry he might be with her. It was an unpleasant business. If Mar garet accepted him he would take her away from all these associations. It was marvel- An flint clin urns nn lirialit tinrl rtianirn1 knowing this horrible story about the Span ish woman, and that there was a taint in the blood. That brother of hers, too, was enough to keep the story always in her mind. The doctor was certainly right about him. Of course he wasn't mad, but there was- some thing strange about him, and at times you caught him looking at you in an unpleasant sort of way. "He is always very civil," the Lientenant muttered to himself; "in fact, wonderfully civil and hospitable, and all that Still I never feel quite at my ease with him. If I had been a rich , man, and they had been hard up, I should have certainty suspected that there was a design in his "invitations, and that he wanted me to marry Margaret; but, of course, that is absurd. He can't tell that I have a penny beyond my pay; and a girl like Margaret might marry anyone she likej, at any rate out jf Devonshire. Per haps he may not have nked the videaofher marrying this cousin of hers; and no doubt he is right there. And seeing, as I daresay he did see, that I was taken with Margaret, he thought it better, to give me a chance than to let her marry Mervyn. "I don't, care a snap whether all her rela tions are mad or not I know that she is as free from the taint as I am; but it can't be wholesome for a girl to live in such an at mosphere, and the next time I go overl will put the question I'meant to put this even ing, and if she says yes I will very soon get her out of it all." And then the Lieuten ant indulged in visions of pretty houses, with bright gardens looking over the sea, and finally concluded that a little place near Byde or Cowes would be inieveryway best and. most convenient, as being handy to PortsB)outb..find far removed from lDevon- step in about a year; then I will go on half pay. I have capital interest, and I daresay my cousin in the Admiralty will be able to get me a dockyard appointment of some sort .at Portsmouth; if not, I shall, of course, give it up. I am not going to knock about the world after I am married." This train of .thought occupied him until almost mechanically he left the trai, walked down to the water, hailed a boat, and was taken alongside his ship.

"I will tell you the story just as it is, then you can judge of its importance your self. It seemed very important to me, be cause I felt, as my friends did, that my trouble could not help but end in my being obliged to give up work and everything else. I was failing so steadily and surely." It was Mr. Charles A. Miller who was speaking. He has been engaged for a long time at A. Speer & Sonfs Globe Works, on Duquesne way, below Sixth street. "It seemed to begin," he continued, "with a cold and cough. My nose would run freely. Then, after a time, it seemed to clog up so, that I was hardly able to breathe through it There, would be a dull pain in my forehead, over my eyes, and ringing and buzzing noise in my ears. My eyes would fill with water, and were so weak and in flamed that I could hardly see to read. I had to be always hemming and hawking. and raising phlegm, especialiy after my meals. "It was not long, however, before what I supposed to be a cold, or a succession of colds, became more serious. There were in tense pains in my head, and a clogging up of my throat which made my breathing very difficult 1 had sharp, shooting pains in my chest, running through to the shoulder blades. Dizzy spells would come over me, accompanied by frequent palpitation of the heart, which made me miserable all the time. Jlfr. Charles A. Miller. "I lost steadily in flesh. My sleep didn't seem to do me any good. I would get up in the morning feeling as tired as when I went to bed. My appetite failed. Night sweats weakened me terribly. I had feverish spells, followed by a cold, chilly feeling, which made me unfit for business. Whatever I would take on my stomach seemed to rest like a heavy load there. I would have a feeling of discomfort and nausea after eat ing. I would sit down to the table with a hearty appetite, and would only eat a few mouthfuls. ' I tried everything and everybody, but grew steadily wetker and worse. My head and throat became almost unbearable. The pains in my chest and night sweats in creased. At'last I read in a newspaper ot a case similar to my own which had been treated and cured by Drs. Copeland & Blair. I went to see them myself, and found their charges verv reasonable and within my means, though I am not a rich man. Although they did not promise much, I felt that they could help me. They did, indeed. I improved steadily from the start under their treatment My beau and throat became clear. The nieht sweats disappeared. I gained in weight, and had no more pains in my chest or pal pitation of the heart My friends noticed ray Improvement and congratulated me on it I feel well and strong now; quite like another man. It was not by any means a temporary im provement I continued to get stronger and better, until thelast trace of my trouble passed away. There is not a sign of it left now. lam a well and hearty man, and leei very grateful to Drs. Copeland St. Blair for my complete and entire recovery." Mr. Charles A. Miller, who makes this state ment, Is engaged, as stated, at A. Speer & Son's Globe Works, on Duquesne way, below Sixth street He lives in Ohio townsnlp, elcht miles out on the Fort Wayne road, and his statement can be easily verified. THE FHAZIER CASE. A Remarkable Statement Made byan Architect Well Known in Both Ciliet, - Mr. John G. Frazier, the architect "well known in Pittsburg and Allegheny, for merly a resident of the latter city, at pres ent living at 5710 Kirkwood street, said: "I was steadily and constantly losing in flesh and strength. In a few months I had fallen away over 25 pounds. My appetite failed me. I could get no sleep. I was un fit for work, unfit for everything. I dreaded the slightest exertion; didn t teel like see ing or talking to any body. I wts nervous, weak, irritable and despondent just managed-to drag myself through my work that was all. It seemed as if I did not have strength or ambition enough to live. My head got to be con tinually affected. My eyes began to trouble mp- A"t last T rpnl- Mr. Frpzler. 5ze(j that j was get ting deaf. For over three months I could hardly hear anything at all. My eyes became dim and watery. They grew so weak that I could hardly see to read and had to wear glasses. For two yars or more I realized that this catarrhal trouble was extending, and it has been within the Jast two years that I be gun to experience its. constitutional effect and could see, as my friends could, that I was fast Roing down. There was difficulty Iu breathing, and a sense of weight aud oppress ion on my chest What little I did eat did not seem to agree with me. My stomach would feel as If It was overloaded as If there was a weight on it. The sense of tasto and smell seemed tobe gone. I was so weak I could hardly get around. My muscles felt as if they bad wasted away. I had read in the paper, of the work that was being done by Drs. Copeland & Blair. I went to see them. Their charges seemed to me to be merely nominal, they were sn low. 1 placed myself nnder their care. "Well, in the first three weeks I gained six pounds In flesbT I Improved steadily. My ap petite returned. I got sound, ref residue nights of sleep, and woke up In tbe morning feeling rested and strong. My hearing was entirely restored. My eyes became strong again and I have laid away my glasses, having no further use for tbem. I feel now strong and well, like another man, and am very grateful to the doctors for my restoration." !
