To waffer again that way to know that horrible pain for weeka and weeks, to he in one position day and night and endure again that awful anguish the very thought of it blanched hia delicate face and sent a thrill of dread and terror to his heart. Tne mad beifera did not halt nor slacken their rpeed. ' But presently they gave a Bharp turn and plunged into tke corn. The sadden movement overturned the wagon and Jerry waa aent tumbling from his seat to the ground. He fell heavily and lay quite still. The overturning of the wagon threw one of tbe calves on its aide, where it as pinned down by the tongue, and this performance brought an end to the runaway. Bru. reached Jerry a side hatleae and breathless, and his heart almost atopped beating a he lent anxiously above the whit-, inanimate figure of his brother. "U-i, Jerry !" he cried. "Oa.

Bru was almowt frantic In a few moments J.-rry opened h ia eyea, other, wise he did not wove. "Ar jou hurt much. Jerry?" Bruce asked azam and again. Finally Jerry answered : "I reckon not."

The fall, instead of injuring him anewf had done a wonderful thing for him.

Bruce carried him en hia back to the house, w here be put him upon the Vied and then went to the relief of the calves. One of them had scrambled to her, feet and the other lay flat on ber side under the cart tongue. Both were once more in a very meek mood, and Bruce had little ditiiculty in releasing them and leading theca back to the cow pen. When their parenta came home they were told all alout the dreadful event of the day, w hich, strantrely enough, had re.-tulted happily instead of fatally. "So you thought it would be a good joke to break the heifers while your pa an 1 ma were away?" said E3";et laugh ing. "I should think the joke is on you. But they all rejoiced over Jerry'a won- ! derful cure, which proved permanent. Jerry is now a lithe, strong man. Youth' $ C'rnpan'ma. Confidence!

Consumers are never "fooled" whej they buy Klein's celebrated "silver Age" or Duquesne Byes." These famous brands of absolutely pure w hisky are now known and sold everywhere from the Atlantic to the Pactiic slope. Every day swells the long list of customers. Why? Because the whiskies named stand solely on their merits. Leading physicians ail overthe 'and iadorae and prescribe them pretty conclusive evidence that the goods are just as represented the purest and best obtainable. A poor whisky is never cheap, but always injurious. You take no chances in ordering "Silver Age" or ' Duquesne," which sell respectively at f 1.50 and i 1.25 per full quart.
