""Indies' World. A False Impression j ftp HERE don't any of them like "HI me," said Belle Brabazon, with the suspicion of a tedr sparkling under her lovely dark eyelashes. "And I've tried so hard to get them to care for me just a little." Capt. Cardan looked admiringly at the pretty girl, who was swinging her •elf slowly to and fro on the pendant rtein of a huge old grapevine, cush ioned with a light Oriental shawl, whose gold threads glimmered fitfully in the September sunshine. "Ah! but you must bave mistaken," said he. "It isn't possible, you know, the village girls can dislike you." "But they do," said Belle, with an Imperative- nod of the fair, sunshiny head. "Why is It, Capt. Cardan? Am. I ugly, or cross, or uncivilized?" "No!" declared the captain, with emphasis; "not one of the three." "Then why is It?" said Belle, pite ously. "Do try to find out for me, Oapt Cardan, and I shall be—oh, so much obliged to you! And now It's time for the mall to be In, and I am going to walk down to the postofflee." "May I walk with you?" asked the oaptain, piteously. "If you wouldn't mind, I'd rather go alone," said Belle, with so propitiatory a smile that the captain felt no sting of wounded vanity. But Miss Brabazon, flitting lightly along, as If the tread of the soft grass was delightful to her feet, had pro ceeded no further than Squire Dater a stone fence when an uncomfortable sound, like the low, muttered threat enings of a distant earthquake, fell on her ears. "It's the big red bull!" she said to herself. "I might have known he was there. Of course I can't cross the field now and I shall have to go round by the road, after all. Oh, dearl oh, dear!" But just at that moment a tall figure swung itself over the fence—Seth Val lance's. "Are you afraid of Nero, Miss Brabazon?" he said. "But there Is no occasion; he is chained." Belle shrank back, with varying color. Mr. Vallance smiled. "I will go across the field with you," he said, "if you will accept my escort" "I shall be so grateful," said Miss Brabazon, with a sigh of relief. Seth had been carting apples for Squire Dater, his uncle, all the morn ing. He was in his working clothes, with a coarse straw hat shading his brown, handsome face, and a ecarlet flannel shirt transforming him into a fit ideal for an artist. Miss Madalina Martin, playing lawn tennis on the level stretch of turf In front of the squire's house, took note of the couple as they crossed the rustic bridgs below. "There goes Miss Brabazon," said Madalina. "It seems that she can't even go to the postoffice without pick Ing up some gentleman by way of hon orary escort." "And it's Seth Vallance this time," •aid Edla Joyce. "She's a born coquette, if ever there was one!" stingiugly remarked Miss St. Avon. "It's too bad, I declare," said Ln cetta Dater, "to have those London girls come down to steal away all the men's hearts with their smiles, and their rouge, and their modern lures." "Who is that you are talking about, girls?" said Helena Manderlll, a pink and white beauty, who had been ■pending the day at Dater Orange, and was just coming out to drive to the train which was to take her to Lon don. "Belle Brabazon!" they all answer od, In chorus. And Ella Joyce added; "She is from London—staying at the York Hotel." "Belle Brabazon!" cried Miss Man derill. "Goodness gracions mel Why didn't some one tell me? I should so have liked to meet Belle Brabazon again I I saw her in the 'School for Scandal-' once—Lady Teazle, yon gnew. The most perfect actress I ever knew." "Bf you're a-goln' in the four-fifteen train, marin," spoke oat the nasal voice of Tetlow, the squire's coachman, "yon haln't no Um« to lose, Mias Man derill."

Mias Manderlll hurried Into the carriage, and was driven away. The lawn tennis players looked si each other with countenances of amazement, not unmixed with a cer tain satisfaction. "I knew It," said Edla Joyce. "Any one could see that there was something wrong about her," said Madalina Martin. At that moment a new visitor was ushered out on the sunny lawn, and the tide of criticism was momentarily checked. Miss Brabazon came back to the hotel tea table in high spirits. She hnd had a letter from home, and her father was to come for her In a week, and the walk with Seth Vallance had given a new stir and Impetus to her ideas. She had always liked the handsome, stately young farmer, but she never had respected him as she did to-day. Capt Cardan was at the table, but he seemed embarrassed and con strained, and devoted himself exclu- , sively to his plate. Belle Brabazon was at a loss to com prehend the gallant captain's sudden coldness. She addressed him as usual, but received only monosyllabic re plies. "What does It mean?" she said to herself. There was an Impromptu masque rade at the hotel the next evening, and all the girls and cavaliers were there. But, to Seth Vallance's Infinite disap pointment, Miss Brabazon did not ap pear. She was lonesome, however, in the silence and seclusion of her own room; when the ballroom was full, and there seemed no longer to be any danger of Interruption on the staircase, she crept down the back way, and, seating her self In a secluded corner, where she could see the crowd and hear the merry music through a vino-sheltered window, which was partly open, felt more lonely than ever. But Miss Madalina Martin's high pitched voice reached her ear pres ently, uttering her name in unmistak able accent. "Miss Brabazon!" she cried. "You surely didn't expect to see her hero to-night?" Yes, I did," said Seth Vallance. 'Why not?" Now that her thin disguise is pene trated?" said Miss Martin, severely. What thin disguise?" persisted honest Seth. "Don't you know?" said Madalina. Didn't your cousin Lucetta tell you what she Is—an actress? That Miss Manderlll herself eaw her playing Lady Teazle, In the 'School for Scan dal,' in London?" "Yes; she told me that," admitted Seth. "But what difference does that make? Isn't she a beautiful and ac complished lady, Just the same?" Seth, you don't understand les con venances!" exclaimed Miss SL Avon, who stood smiling by, on the arm of Capt Cardan. "Of course, she must feel that she has gained our social ree ognitlon entirely under false pre tences. An actress, Indeed!" I don't 6ee," drily remarked Seth "why an actress can't be as perfect a lady and as estimable a woman as any one. And I am quite sure that Miss Brabazon is faultless In every re spect And I for one am not going to listen to any of the gossip or back biting In which the ladies here may be inclined to indulge." I approve your spirit, Mr. Val lance," snld a calm, quiet voice; and Miss Belle Brabazon, lifting the cur tain, glided In among them In the pale blue dress she alwnys wore, and cluster of half-faded roses In her hair. "Without intending to be an eaves dropper, I have heard the conversation of these ladies. And 1 only wish them to understand that could I rightfully claim the title of actress it would be the brightest star in my life's coronet to me. But as it is, I regret to con fess that I am only an amateur, acted Leady Teazle In the private theatricals given by my friend Mrs. Willoughby in Belgravia, and was for tunate enough to win some little np preeiation. Further than that, I have aever aspired to histrionic fame." And when she left the room, which she did almost immediately, it was under the escort of Seth Vallnnce. And when Miss Helena Manderill's nextletterarrived, explaining that Miss Brabazon was a gren. heiress, and one of the most idolized favorites of Lon don fashionable society, the ladles at the New York Hotel, Nortlibourne, se cretly groaned over their badly man aged campaign. "How could we ever have made sueh an awkward blunder?" cried they.

Colorado Springs, Col., May 9.— Mrs. Meda Kempter, wife of Richard Kempter of Syracuse, N. Y., has iden tified the remains of the Cutler mount ain victim as those of her daughter, Mrs. Bessie Boughton, and has left with the remains for New York. The identification was made complete by the dental work upon the teeth and by a scar upon the right ride of the left forefinger, as well as by the hair. The mother charged that Milton Franklin Andrews attempted to mur der the girl by poison while on the Pacific coast, and this convinces the police that if they can capture An drews they will be able to establish murder charge against him. The body of Bessie Roughton was found on Cutler mountain, south of this city, on the afternoon of Decem ber 17, 1904, by Dr. Chamberlain and party of friends. Death was caused by a 28 caliber bullet being fired into the head. Every article of clothing was removed by the murderer and the body placed across the stump of tree, face downward. In the effort to prevent recognition of the body, the murderer poured gasoline upon the body and built a fire under the face. But the exhaustive dental work upon the teeth was not destroyed, and it as this work which has led to the identification of the victim.

An editorial in the Walla Walla Statesman of the 18th of April quot ing from an alleged Miss Murdock and commenting thereon is a tissue of ma licious misrepresentations. Its publi cation was doubtless secured by some unscrupulous rival for its effect on pending adoptions in Washington. Our capital stock is stated at sixteen (111) times its real amount. It is a matter of public knowledge that we have on ly a moderate share of Chicago busi ness. The incident alleged to have occurred when Miss Murdock pro fesses to have been in a New York private school never occurred nor any thing similar thereto. These three main misstatements are characteristic of the whole libelous and scurrilous article. We appeal to the educational authorities in the counties and cities of Washington to judge our books on their merit and ourselves on our deal ings with them and not allow them selves to be misled by libelous false hoods circulated by our rivals and others.

It inter fered often with my domestic and social duties and I never supposed that I would be cured, as the doctor's medicine did not seem ts help me any. "Fortunately a member of our Order advised me to try Peruna and gave it such high praise that I decided to try it. Although I started in with little faith, I felt so much better in a week that I felt encouraged. "I took it faithfully for seven weeks and am happy indeed to be able to say that 1 am entirely cured. "Words fail to express my gratitude. Perfect health once more is the best thing I could wish for, and thanks to Peruna, I enjoy that now." Pain in the back, or on the right side. ilo.v often a physician hears this complaint ! Over and over we hear women say: "1 have a pain in the small of my back. I have a pain in my.rigjfct side, just be low the ribs." These symptoms indicate pelvic or abdominal catarrh. They indicate that the bowels are not acting properly—that the liver is out of order — that the pelvic organs are congested. Pelvic catarrh—that is the name for it. Peruna cures pelvic catarrh, when all of these symptoms disappear. The catarrh may be ail in the ab dominal organs, when it would be prop erly called abdominal catarrh. At any rate, it is one of those cases of internal catarrh which can he reached only by a course of treatment with Peruna. We have on file thousands of testi monials similar to the above.
