John Sopor tried hard to do Ills duty when he became pastor of a church at Windport, down on Long Is land. It was his first charge, and he soon began to think that, when he was called to the ministry, either the wrong John Sopor answered the telephone or the message was a fake one. One of the first things lie found out was that the church was in debt and willing to become more so. For a mouth or two ho got the whole of liis miserably small salary. Then he got only part of It, and <Tnally he found it necessary to speak about tiie condition of things. Deacon Killer was the chief man in the church. He had the reputation of hoiuk well to (lo. lie was the principal storekeeper in the village and lived away from his business in an cl.l fash ioned dwelling, fae',:i;; 0:1 the main street. Flis ;~h"fi* ilachcl was a very chni:u!;ig jclrl ? C i.) ? r 23. All the young men nroun I were r.nxlous for her acquaintance. lint Hachel had re ceived a goo.l education and was, moreover, shieevc ly ploi.; and had no taste for the boorish manners, uncouth speech an I careless lii'.biis of jnost of I the younit men around. The new pas- ' tor was a very different man from the natives in all respects. He was tall, strong and erect, with a manly face and gentle methods. He was well In formed and knew how to talk and didn't assume an air of superiority, as some young pastors do. I think that It j is best ty say at once that lie fell in , love with "Hachel and that she was willing and glad. Neither la It neces sary to say that he visited the deacon's house ofteuer than any other In Wind port. I have said that the pastor's salary was miserably small. So when It came in regularly it was barely enough to pay his living expenses. When it cens ed to come in, he was taken aback. So he went to the deacon and had a long talk with lslm, and the deacon said he would see about It. "I hope yeu will as speedily as pos sible," said the pastor, "for, you see, I am a poor man and possess 110 other Income." The deacon and Ills wife after tills laid their heads together. They had noticed the pastor's liking for Hachel and felt rather flattered, taking it for granted that a young man who had spent years at college, always dressed well and had accepted the charge of so poor a church must have a good in come apart from his profession. The result was that husband and wife agreed that the pastor's visits must be discouraged, as they expected their daughter to marry a man of means and not a pauper, no matter how good he might be. Of course It devolved on Mrs. Sifter to let the pastor under ! stand In an offhand way the views of herself and lier husband as to their ex pectations about Rachel. So when the pastor called soon aft | erward and was having a pleasant con versation with Hachel in the parlor her 1 mother bnstled In and greeted Mr. Sopor with much fervor. She sat down and talked about the weather and the | crops end the Sunday school and the hard times. Then she suddenly re membered that she wanted something from the store and supposed that Hachel wouldn't mind fetching It. Haeliel at once rose, excused herself and departed 011 her mission. "See how readily she goes." said her mother. "She's a real good girl, and I'm so thankful that, in spite of her fine education, she is always ready to help me. You see. some people thought we was sp'iling her when we sent her to college, but she was our only one. and we were anxious that she should be a fit wife for a good man, no mat ter how high up he might be. We've seen a many nice girls make up with young men and marry them, though they hadn't more than $10 or $12 a week, a Mil in most cases when any thing out of the way happened they had to fall back on their parents for help. Of course we've got a little something laid by. but don't intend our daughter ta dei>end on that when she gets married. Better stay single and bide at home than do that." There was only one Interpretation which Mr. Sopor could find for this speech. Including the $10 or $12 a week allusion, and that was that the deacon and Ills wife had seen Ills liking for Rachel and wanted it understood that they would strenuously object to him as a son-ip-law. A few days later in the evening a ehnrcl) meeting was held, and the pas tor spoke very plainly about his salary nnd the failure of the members to at tend the services and subscribe. He was always a plain speaker. In the pnlpit he used simple language and homely illustrations and never talked politics or lectured on novels, but kept . close to his text. "I won't be in debt for the food I eat," he said, "and so youjmuat cither pay me the salary r-nr ? .i ?? meand let mc go SfaewUcw" ''""'aS? f.e?' pa;Uar'" sa'd one of the dea cons, we thought ye'd ha' gathered In? v l.m No5V '/ yed hatl a rous thev'di.v y? ?nd made thiuKs l?ot they d ha come right in and might ha' bin converted." b 1 ua tionsa~'l\i?1'?L" aWare of m-v 'mperfec ? *Ii. Sopor said, "and am readv 8ight^nVie|theT anU 1!1-rscIf ?Ut of your s ght and hearing, hut I want it under ? ood that you have eovenam^ with Be to I'a.v me so much a month .,r.,i you haven't done it. and i must either live on crcdit or starve." crediT " 'inm ?!' Cml,t and tradwl on credit, said Deacou Sifter, -and nn body thinks the worse of mo. but then I never was a confessed pauper" nJ?? aro at ?berty to live on credit again." Mr. Sopor said, "butaJcS an you a,.e not at ljbmy <q ,J|jfc 8 to the m .V?- " "?uld be a disgrace to tue Christian name." 1rT'10 meeting grew stormy and ad journed without nnv alterant to imV tUo pastor s salary. The vory^ox" ,Hy llov tlT'' T'Ct,hi"K ''"PPcned to re:,-' salarv Ho'". i , anxlo"s about his r . received a letter. lnforminK njm 1 hat an uncle had died, leaving him an estate of over $200,000. Just ns It was growing dark 1,0 started for ti h.!le,lCOn S f ?ro' Inteu,11?K to smooth things over about the salary.

Who does not wish tliat all these fancies could end as did the old fairy stories, "and they lived happy ever after." Pain soon pricks the bubbles, and nothing remains of all the hope and gladness of the bride but a bridal veil and a piece of stale wedding cake. The only way in which happiness can be realized in marriage is by being fore armed against its dangers. Most young women are ignorant of the fact that irreg ularity means a derangement of the wom anly functions which may have far reaching conse quences after marriage. With this derangement at j the start there often fol low the drains, ulcera tions and inflammations which make life one long misery. A certain cure for irregularity and other diseases peculiar to women is found in Dr. Pierce s Favorite Prescription. It contains no alcohol neither opium, cocaine nor other narcotic. " I was so weak I did not have breath to walk across my room.** writes Miss Isibefl Miller, of New Providence. A Calloway Co., Ky. '' My pe riods occurred too often and the hemorrhage would be pro longed and the loss of blood very excessive. I also had spells which the doctor said were fain tin a: fits. Mr stomach woold cramp until I could not straighten. I did not strength from one montMa period to another; was very weak and nervoiffirall the time. The doctor told me he did not know what was the cause of my trouble and that I would never be any better. I lived in this way from sixteen years old to twenty-three, when the doctor dis missed my case. After this I was advised by a kind friend to try Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, which I did and before I had taken / two bottlesof it I could work all day. / I took in all six bottles of the ' Pa- [ vorite Prescription * and about five \ vials of Dr. Pierce's Pellets. I used no other medicine. I have never liad a return of this trouble since." Dr. Pierce's Pleasant r A Wife Says: " Ve have (our children. With the first three I suffered almost unbearable pains from 12 to 14 hours, and had to be placcd under the influence of chloroform. I used three bottles of Mother's Friend before our last child came, which is a strong, fat and healthy boy, doing my housework up to within two hours of birth, and suf fered but a few hard This lini ment is the grand est remedy ever made." Mother's Friend will do for every woman what it did for the Minnesota mother who writes the above let ter. Not to use it during pregnancy is a mistake to be paid for in pain and suffering. Mother's Friend equip* the patient with a strong body and clear intellect, which in turn are imparted to the child. It relaxes the muscles and allows them to expand. It relieves morning sicbirss and nervousness. It puts all the organs concerned In perfect condition for the final hour, so that the actual labor is sifBrt and practically painless. Dan ger of rising or hard t>reasts is altogether avoided, and recovery is merely a matter of a few days. DruEK<3t?fcll Mother's Friend lor SI a battle. The Bradfleld Regulator Co., Atlanta, Ga.
