Cured by Dr. Greene's Nervura
Blood and Nerve Remedy.
Mrs. S. R. Berry, Lebanon, N. H., says :—
" I could not sleep nights and tbe chills or
shaking would follow, and I could do but very
little of anything. I had to lie dawn a great
deal, and my nerves were very weak and of
no use. There was a terrible, pain in my
head, and I was almost a complete wieckgof
my former self. I was depressed in mind ana
spirits. My liver was swollen and my kid
neys were very bad.
*' I used Dr. Nervura blood and
nerve remedy, and 1 will say that this wonder
ful medicine is the greatest blessing that ever
came into a family.
" It has done perfect wonders forme. After
taking two bottles I could do more work than
I had for over a year, and now I can eat better
than ever, am strong again and have got back
my former looks and good color."

behind her, when her brain ached
ie effort to guess at the words and
gestures that were passing there among
the frowning family portraits and the
great oak bookcases, for at that moment
Dick Lindsay was telling his loves and
hopes to Lord Hunston, the stern man
whom fate had given her for an uncle
and a guardian. Enid's fond heart told
her what her lover would say, how hard
he would plead, how handsome he would
look, but—her uncle? Would he relax,
would he permit himself to be moved,
would he—consent? And in the effort to
materialize the f aroff scene Enid grew
pale and trembled like a wind tossed
Hurried footsteps among the roses
roused her from her reverie at last, and, j
turning, she saw her lover speeding to
ward her.
"Dick!'.' she cried in welcome, run
ning to him and with her set face break
ing into joyous smiles. Then a little
moan escaped her, and she grew white
as her gown, for one glance at Dick
Lindsay's eyes told her he had failed
"Darling, at first I hoped for suc
cess," said Dick when Enid had regain
ed some degree of self control and the
lovers had wandered from among the
jarring flare of the brilliant fleer gar
den in the friendly shadows of the wood.
"Your uncle heard me without inter
ruption and even smiled once or twice.
I told him of my prospects, how the
mortgage was nearly paid off the Knoll,
and how I should be able to live there
in another year. I referred him to Tape
son and Jenkins that he might verify
my statement as to how well the farms
were let. I proved to him that I was
financially in a position to aspire to
your hand, filled with fortune's gift as
it is."
"And he said"— murmured Enid,
lifting her tear washed eyes to Dick's
handsome face.
I 'He said—nothing. That was the
rst part of it, Enid. If he had only
anced arguments, I might have de

no loophole for speech. He unlocked
a small drawer in his bureau—you
know the one that has carved goblins'
heads all over it—and pulled out from
amid a sheaf of papers one that was
folded twice and was tied with tape."
"I know—l know; the copy of my
father's will," cried Enid, "made be
"He opened the paper and pushed it
across the bureau to me, marking with
a nail dent the passage I should read "
"Oh, don't repeat it; don't say it!"
wailed the girl, putting her hands over
her ears, as though to shut out hated
sounds. ' 'Don't I know too well that my
marriage was fixed for me from the be
ginning, and that my father, on his
deathbed, willed that if his only and
posthumous child should be a daughter
she should, on her twenty-first birthday,
be affianced to the only son of his dear
est friend, Lord Errington? Oh, it was
a cruel thing to da "
"Crneler still, my darling, to ordain
that if at the date of your majority
Lionel Errington were alive and unmar
ried, and you should refuse to become
his wife, you should be deprived of your
inheritance for five years and should
even not be allowed to live in your own
house. Those shameful paragraphs were
all my answer. Your uncle then bowed
me from tho Boom, only sarcastically
begging my presence at your birthday
ball next week, during which he intends
to announce your engagement to young
A hot flush stained Enid's white skin
and dried the tears on her cheeks as she
drew herself from Dick's encircling
arms and faced him in the narrow path

Dick! I mean what I say. I shall be
ready to leave this place in a week."
"But, Enid, my love, where will you

She shook her blond head "I don't

j A moment later Enid's white gown
was fluttering over the lawns and ter
races homeward.
Miss Fitz Roy's majority was being
celebrated in a truly seigneurial f ash
! ion. From early morning the shows and
j entertainments in the park had been pat
ronized by cuawds of friends and ten
ants. The midday dinner, accompanied
by • speeches and presentations, was a
huge success. In the afternoon the ter
races about the house blossomed like a
parterre with the light frocks of the
"county," who came to witness a bi
cycling gymkhana, which at the last
moment had been organized by the her
roine of the day.
The racing was excellent, the prizes
charming, and all the company were bi
cycle mad, when a rumor ran round that
a paper chase, with the beautiful Miss
Fitz Roy as hare, would wind up the
afternoon's proceedings. The idea wa«
received with delight, and Enid might
chase'Ber had" she sb'wTllear WHh'pwt
ty obstinacy, she persisted herself in
choosing the pack, and with infinite
taste shared the honors among hex
friends-tod tenants alike. Bat at the
last moment she exercised her sex's pre- j
rogative and entertained a caprice. She
would have a companion hare, a man,
and that her choice might not be invidi- j
ous she would draw the name of the
hare that was to be from among the
, hounds that were. Pencils and paper
and a hat were instantly in demand
' 'What freaks Enid has, to be sore!"
said Lady Hnnston to her lord as plow
boys and gentlemen alike dropped the
folded papers in the hat Enid held.
"It will be Errington's business to
check them," growled his lordship.
"Which of the lads is that?" he went
on as a redheaded yokel slouched past
Enid in the immediate wake of the at
tenuated and mincing Lionel.
"One of Wilson's new hands, perhaps.
I heard he had, several. Dear me, how
Enid does overdo things, to be sure!
She's as white as a ghost. She'll look a
fright tonight."
And, indeed, as Miss Fitz Boy plunged
her hand into the hat and drew out a
scrap of paper she turned deathly pale.
Scarcely glancing at 'it, she said in a
low voice, "Isaac Clay."
"Isaac Clay! Who is he?" cried every
one. And then a mighty laugh rose
from the merry crowd and even Enid's
white lips smiled as the awkward figure
of "Wilson's new hand" pushed shyly
to the front..
"What a hare I He won't get to lodge
gates,'' laughed every one as the bag of
torn paper was slung across the lad's
back. -
"Seven minutes' start!" cried Enid
as she sprang into the saddle and sped
round the angle of the house, with her
companion hare wobbling after her.
And in that time hounds were after
her, amid the cheers of the crowd and
sundry minor mishaps. At the lodge
gates Lionel Errington, in spite of the
white paper going both ways, turned
sharp to the left.
"Miss Fitz Boy won't try Bluebell
hill, I know," he called to those behind
him, who were all game for a spin along
the flat Clevely road. For some five
miles the paper track was clear, then
suddenly came to an end.
"It's a trap, of course," said Lionel,
who was too warm raid was getting
cross. "She'll start it again farther on.''
But "farther on" there was no wel
come "spore," and eight miles from
home hounds had to confess themselves
' 'If Enid tried the hill at all, it must
have been to shake off that lout," said
Lionel sulkily, turning back.
] "But how did the paper come on this
road, then?" cried Lady May Saville.
She was a pretty little girl, but Er
rington was in too bad a humor to an
swer her. Yet as-he pedaled up to Gar
denhurst once more he forced some
cheeriness in his voice as he cried,.
"Hares have won!"
"But vfbere are they?" demanded
Lord Hunston.
"Isn't the yokel smashed up?" tittered
one fair dame.
"Where's Enid hiding?" cried Lady
Hunston. "Herlrike's not among the

In a quiet Kensington drawing room
that evening sat three people—an old
lady, a girl and a young gentleman. On
a chair lay a countryman's smock and a
carroty wig- The old lady was wiping
her eyes. She had laughed until she had
cried. Presently she left the two young
people alone.
"How well you managed!" said tlje
girl, smoothing the ruffled hair of her
companion. ' .
"And how brave you have been, dar
ling! But was it not lucky I thought of
papering the Clevely road every
one was busy in the park?"
Enid blushed
