f How a Strange Marriage Cere mony Baffled Plotters Against a Young Heiress. By SELINA LILLIAN HIGGINS. “It was hard luck,” slid Leslie Brompton to his companion on the train. “The last thousand dollars I owed on the place was growing up out of the soil at the rate of SIOO a day, when the cyclone came.” “Going to give it up, then?” “No, I am going to get work in the city, hoping I can make a new start later on.” Rev. Jared Boyd spoke a few consoling and encouraging words to the bright, earnest-faced young man he had met casually. Brompton was glad to talk to any congenial spirit. He felt hard hit, and wanted friendly interest, stunned as he was by a dis aster that had made of a smiling land scape a void of devastation. The seat in front of them was oc cupied by a young lady. Her beauty and then the extreme pallor of her face had attracted the attention of Brompton. She seemed laboring under some intense mental distress. Her Jkimpanion a hatchet-faced, shifty | .j&Siwred who might have been him to the extreme edge of the seat. Brompton traced distrust, repugnance, fear in her movements. He wondered, what vital life drama their utter silence concealed. The man finally went to the smoker. Brompton’s casual acquaintance the aisle to join some friends. *AII in a moment Brompton was startled, amazed, to see the girl turn directly around to him. Her eyes bore a pained, agitated expression, her color was heightened, but she subdued the quivering of her lips with a will that seemed to nerve her mightily because she was faejng a situation that must be met sharply. “I wish to speak/vith you,” she said ,in a low think of sister, if you have one, and pity help a woman in peril, sorrow /over deep, deep trouble. I —• jr "~ 1 rfT -!■ 1.1 *■"■“*■* —■■n- 11 Seemed Laboring Under Some Strange Mental Distress. know you are Mr. Leslie Brompton, and an unmarried man. You must forgive me, but I purposely listened t? your conversation with the clergy man. It has given me hope—-a last faint hope.” In sheer bewilderment and stupefac tion young Brompton heard these strange words. A vague suspicion crossed his thoughts that the utter ance might be impelled by a mind dis traught. “The man with me,” proceeded the girl, “is leading me to a fate I dare not . mbat for the sake of those near and dear to me. He holds a power over me I cannot defy. There is one bare loophole of escape from misery, ruin—- yes, death itself. You can provide it.” ‘I —I!” repeated Brompton, lost in wonderment. “Yes, and now, and here, and quick ly, for the precious mr -uent of respite may pass before I car. act. You need money. There is over a thousand dollars,” and the speaker drew an en velope from her hand bag. “I need aid, protection. You shall receive double what I have here later, if — if —” She paused, her cheeks turning scar let. A pleading, trembling hand rested unconsciously upon his own. Bromp- L ton was unutterably moved. “If —if you will marry me” —the Wklrooping hand went lower, the tears llwere falling. “Do not think me un- HgM idenly, do not think I hope to urge fflHTu to a lifetime sacrifice. It is my fljJrfe, the lives of others in the bal- GEfmce. I cannot explain to you now, W but yours is a story of h life lonely r and broken as my own, and you came my patli..p.t..a crisis. I appeal to j'ou'Y LesVlie Brompton thrilled. The wist i ful fac-'e, .he melting touch, the sure convictjion that in some strange way this fajir being was on the verge of desperation roused every manly emo tion. Tie did not try to analyze the situatlo : 'u. “! th'dnk I understand you,” he said slowly. I “1 am infinitely sorry for you, and —at your command. I cannot take our m-oney I trust to you to send me world when you are ready, explain ing it ai,l —” “And \ cancelling a contract that must be\ forbidding to you—yes, you have my | sacred word," said the young girl solei-nnly. What mellowed was to Leslie like an act some rapid drama. He spoke to jthe clergyman. The latter conversed^ briefly with the young lady. Then ththre was a swift, undertoned marriage /ceremony. The clergyman fille’ out two blank certificates. “Dori- I Jay field.” A sweet, simple name, wholesome as the fair face of its owner!) She whispered a few last words to/Leslie: “Go back to your land. You will hear from me.” Then her escort, returned. They left the train together at the next station. One weeik later Leslie returned to his land. ! He had tired of the city, the lure of the wilderness was too strong a spell to resist. The town banker met him. “I hope you have come back to stay,” he said. “We need such men as you. Then, too, it is all arranged for you.” “Abou. what?” questioned the mysti fied Leslie. “Your land. A confidential client has forwarded the bam several thou sand dollars to protect the mortgage a- " cover new improvements!” “But I cannot accept money under such conditions,” began Leslie. “Our client probably anticipated your independent spirit,” smiled the banker. “The money is simply a guarantee, and you can have ten years to pay off the mortgage if you wish it, and we will- advance you whatever funds you need to rebuild. No danger of your not soon cleaning it up.”- It was a month later when, one morning, Leslie stood surveying the new habitation. A veritable wood nymph seemed to come forth from the greenery lining the town road. It was —his wife. She came forward to greet him with humid eyes of gratitude, in free, fear less womanhood. He could tell from her restful face that her great trouble had passed by. “I have come,” she said “to explain.” s' He led her to a rustic bench. Vnler eyes sparkled, her cheeks wW like shaded velvet in the gentle/ health- | giving breeze. / Then she told him briefly. She was j ian heiress. Two worthless brothers j had become invoh d in forgery. A j . siunsiiibg xk\ y i uaa' 1 /lh'feawssfctfStfe l - jt grace if she did not wed a client, a man she despised. She was ready to make the sacrifice when the train episode occurred. Later her produc tion of the marriage certificate had baffled the plotters. A sum of money had secured immunity for her grace less relatives, whom she had sent to a new country. She looked down when she had con cluded. She filled his vision with a new glory. Then she said: “I have come to tell you that I have arranged to have the marriage an nulled, and to beg of you to allow me to share my fortune with you.” Then she burst forth, stretching her hands across the peaceful scene before her. “Ah, what rest, what beauty, all this! It is nearly heaven.” She resembled some wearied traveler gone through a turbulent ex perience. Her very soul seemed to plead for peace after storm. “A lonely home,” spoke Leslie irre sistibly. “It will be doubly so when you leave. You cherish its peace and quiet. Then —could you share it, with me and —love?” Afar a lowing herd droned forth musically, mingled with mellow tintina bulations. She leaned towards him, both hands extended, a sob in her voice, bt t joyful, serene. “Listen,” she said simply—“our wed ding hells!” (Copyright, 1913, by AY. G. Chapman.) OF SPECIAL TRAINING Ability to Do Some One Thing Well Is a Great Help in Strenuous Competition of Life. The hardest job I know of is hunt ing a job, especially if you have no training in any particular line, writes bune. The fellow who has tsarted out in the world to make his fortune with out any definite idea of how he is going to make it realizes what he is up against the moment he strikes a cold, strange city. I went west as hundreds of other boys have done, thinking that because the sun set in that direction every thing would be sure to be soft. Of course I expected to work, but I ex pected the wages would be big and that congenial employment would be easy to secure. Well, it was the best experience I could have had. At the end of a few weeks and when 1 had gotten to that stage where I was glad to scrub a restaurant floor for a meal, I began to take a sober view of life, I can tell you. Why, I wasn’t even able to carry a few dishes bn my arm and wait tables in one of those restaurants. I finally ‘bummed’ it back home, swallowed my pride, and begged the boss of the local plumbing shop to let me work for nothing until I could learn the trade. The fellows around town roasted me somewhat because I had come back, but I said nothing and kept right on that plumbing work. Two years later I went west again to a big city that had struck my fancy and had no trou ble in getting a good job at my trade. My being able to do some one thing made all the difference in the world.. * God In the Newspaper. The daily press is as full of spiritual teaching of a kind as the Bible. It does not preach sermons, it is true, or tag on morals to its news, but the lessons are so plain that he who runs may read. Shining behind the tragic facts of the multitudes of front page articles one may read such terrible texts as “Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap;” “He that soweth to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption,” “The wages of sin is’ death.” God is speaking loudly in every newspaper in the country.

R'— ■■ mu miiiii;^ MRTISING TALKS 1 LEARN ADVERTISING FROM NEWSPAPERS Make Gist of Announcements in Big Type—lmportant Ele ments to Observe. Sig Hiysh of the Henry Siegel com pany’s Boston store, spoke on “What Is Advertising?” in Springfield, Mass , a few nights ago. The address was delivered before a large gathering - comprising the class of the Spring field Y. M. C. A. which is studying “Modern Methods in Mefchandising.” Among the many strong points brought out by Mr. Hirsh in his talk the following received particular at | tention from his interested audience: “Hold a, series of re: ’ special sales j and attract big business; people see ■ypyPai'—■ advertis ing. Make the customers who visit your store feel at home; give them better service; they will notice it — that’s advertising. Your sales force and general help are a strong adver tising force controlled entirely by you, just as the leader controls the orchestra. Your personal conduct and that of your associates and managers is continually under observation of your employes, and, good or bad, is commented on during business hours with the other employes and after business hours in their homes and among friends pnd neighbors. Fundamental Part of Advertising. “ ‘What is the best method of ad vertising?’ This question was asked some years ago by an English mer chant of an American whose store he was visiting. The American, being a most extensive advertiser, answered thus: ‘We have to take up almost everything in the way of publicity for fear that we might lose some excep tionally good point; but the funda mental part of our advertising is the newspaper.’ This without doubt holds good today, because your message goes to more people and reaches them quicker than any other method. “The retail merchant does not de vote the time and thought to adver tising that he should. The majority judge that an announcement with prices and illustrations once a week or twice a month covers everything. Newspapers Teach Merchants. “This is not sufficient. Your news paper advertising, particularly, should be carefully studied, should be plan ned ahead and after discussion or thought, decided upon, ai)d then car ried out, rain or shine. Learn from the newspapers. “Look at the front page of your paper and you’ll see the headlines over the news items. They will tell r Sufir'g'r-a’giahca Afog-gfeY ax 1 nrs-STtiyrr' if you are interested you will read the full details. If not, you will pass on to the next. Construct your ads in the same manner. Your headline must tell the reader what you have to offer for sale. Try to maintain some distinct style after you get started, so that the reader will recog nize your announcement by its ap pearance. Create a trademark. “l?on’t crowd your ads. White space is essential in everything, so surely in advertising. You must have some background, home horizon to bring out the subject. Important Elements. “Style and quality should be the keynote, whether it’s furniture or mil linery, home fitting or footwear, wear ing apparel or automobiles. Yes, I want to be emphatic on this point; we should have style and quality first and price last. “I will cite a case to show what can be done with a small ad. On Thurs day morning, October 24, I was read ing the Boston Post, when the pecu liar illustration on the bottom of a page attracted my attention. I look ed closer and, yes, it was a rough il lustration of an onion. “This advertisement appeared in the Post and Globe only; space 63 lines deep and two columns wide. The total cost, sixty odd dollars. Re sult; Next morning the elevators of the department store that advertised the onions brought crowd after crowd to the fifth floor, and the fruit and vegetable section of the grocery department was busy all day. On that Friday, October 25, there were sold more than a carload of onions. The exact quantity was 800 bushels, and in the four days following, mak ing a total of five selling days (with no other advertising) there were dis posed of more than three carloads of onion#, or, to be exact, 2,150 bushels. The usual sales amount to about ten bushels per day. An Irresistible Force. “Advertising,” said one of America's greatest merchants, “doesn’t jerk; it pulls. It begins very gently at first, but the pull is steady. It increases day by day and year by year, until it exerts an irresistible power.” Nonunion.

The degree of saltness of the Irish sea is the indicator Prof. H. Bassett proposes to use for long-distance weather predictions. The salinity is found to vary in a period of about one year, with corresponding changes in temperature, the water being more salty and relatively warmer in win ter and spring and fresher and rela tively cooler in summer. It is argued that the alterations of temperature must Affect the number and character of the cyclones coming from the COMPARATIVE VALUES' IN ADS Test Demonstrates That j Figures Showing Saving Effected f Aid in Selling Merchandise. “An officer in one of Chicago’s big gest stores, high up in the councils of his firm, conceived the idea one day of elimipating all references to com parative values in the ensuing week's advertising of the store,” says a writer in the Woman’s Home Com panion. “‘I will warrant,’ said he in an swer to the vigorous protest of the ad vertising man in charge, ‘I will war rant that the reputation of our house is so strong that if we announce a sale of women’s lingerie dresses at $11.75, and pronounce them absolute ly the best value at the price in town, we will sell them just as fast as though we put a specific value on them in dollars and cents.’ V ‘How much are they worth ?’ ask ed the advertising man. “ ‘They cost us wholesale, about nine dollars; ordinarily they would re tail at sls or sl6.’ “ ‘Then why not say so?’ asked the advertising man. “ ‘Because the people have lost faith in the values recently put out in this town by reason cf the reck less boosting of original ! values on the part of the smaller 1 fry. And I am firmly convinced, if we simply say that these are extrabi iinary val ! ues. backed &SL OUZJd£ rec- I ord for truthful and sgiia-e dealing, - ' that it will serve us better.’ “ ‘You can’t sell them even at nine dollars if you don’t quote an actual saving in so many dollars and cents,’ was the last word of the advertis ing man. “The same newspapers were em ployed as mediums to publish the announcement and the same space employed as was their custom when ever advertising a sale of this char acter. The heading of the adver tisement read: “ ‘Two Hundred and Fifty Wom en’s Handsome Lingerie Dresses, at $11.75. These dresses are the pick of our stylish, seasonable stock, and embody all the dainty touches de manded by the Women of fashion and discrimination. They are absolutely the best values in town at the price, which is considerably below wbat would ordinarily be asked in regular selling, etc.’ “The outcome of the sale was as the advertising man predicted. The sale was a failure, although the day was an exceptionally fine one, an April day, clear and crisp, ideal for shopping purposes. “The test was repeated with a sim ilar sale the ensuing week, with the same amount of newspaper space, but with this heading: ‘Women’s Hand some sls Lingerie Dresses at $11.75, about one-third underpriced; 750 Dain ty Garments in a Rare Bargain Sale; savings of Almost 30 Per Cent.; 4 Gar ments for the Price of 3, etc.’ “The stocks were cleared in a day.” HARD TIMES AND ADVERTISING Policy of a Successful Merchant to Get Big Share of Business When It Is Poorest. ~ " 1 " A prominent advertiser who spends a fortune every year in publicity has established a significant rule, accord ing to Leslie’s Weekly. Whenever he notices a slowing up of business, he increases his advertising. This is his reason: “When business is boom ing it is unnecessary to fight for it —it comes of itself; but when busi ness is slow I insist on having my share of it, and the easiest way to get it is by calling attention to the . value of my goods. I do not wait for hard times. I scent them in the distance and before anybody else gets busy I make my contracts for advertising on a big scale and get tuy orders in before my competitars know what I am doing. The logic ! and common sense of the attitude of this gentleman account in a large part for the remarkable success be has achieved. Whoever the gentleman is, he has gotten wise and is advertising in the right manner, and merchants in every town would do well to emulate him. District Attorney Uses Ads.

During the reign of James 1., the metal pins came into fashion. In 1817 a machine for producing entire pins was invented by an American, Seth Hunt, but it remained for Samuel Wright, of Massachusetts, to patent in 1824 the wonderful pin-making ma chine which is generally used today. A certain amount of witchery and romance has always been associated with the humble pin. In olden times it was regarded as a charm against, and also as an implement of witch craft. Witches were supposed to force their victims to swallow pins, while, on the other hand, pins stuck in the heart of an animal and carefully pre served were considered the appro priate antidote to evil influences. !n Wales there existed a grim supersti tion that a toad pierced with , p ! ns would cause the life of an enemy to wither as the poor creature itself slow ly died. In Russia it is considered unlucky to meet a priest on leaving a house —a state of affairs which can only be remedied by throwing a pin at him; and in Iceland if a man is suspecting of walking after death, pins and needles are thrust into the feet of the corpse.

I thought all my hair would drop out. It came out by handfuls, and my head itched so I nearly scratched the skin off. If was full of dandruff which showed plainly in my hair. I also had trouble with my hand. It peeled every time I put it in water, and it was so badly disfigured that every body noticed it and asked me what it was. It was red, and burned awfully. “My mother tried several things but they were unsuccessful, and it seemed as if nothing did it any good until I started to use Cuticura Soap and Oint ment. It had lasted about four weeks, but then it started getting well add my hair stopped falling completely. Now it is cured. My hair is now nice and thick and is growing to a nice length.
