A SPINSTER.
If
- She became a spinster 27 years ago.
Thus fate, decreed it.
j Young men had become afflicted with
a paasioiiEor CarcAme—wartime gal
lants, three sidecades back. But before
their morttbS4'had caught-courage from
their eye&i<or •their 'arms had acted out
the convictions of their silences, they had
received "No." Her proud
bearing of nature's gift, and if
in part itttn&a screen for her timidity,
the mask \wps too deceptive, had Caro
line but Molten it. Her lovers fell away
one byipne-ifrom a fortress that only
eeem&tfcvritjterabie.
i Wheathis'jfroop of cowards had yield
ed, theTOiiiadifßtepped forward a man of
courage, of .broad mental compass.
iThough yoang 1 , Ac-had served his ooun
try—BoCvftoM-- passively, but actively,
in battle, i private at first. He had
iongbt Wj»«eW, and when graduated
ifrom tbe, had an ugly scar
'on his left<Hmi)to show for it. He was
almost ashamed; of it—so slight. The
a comrade near
by. He bA&aJnbfifions noble, strong. He
tad itSijtoiOfSron, energies unfaltering.
He a fine physique, the
sufficient 'pShslcal backing to uphold
(him ia He was persistent
in low as ito-elbowlng his way forward
among his ftellowmen. He loved Caro
line.
She had .often analyzed her feelings
toward trim. She knew his love was
honest. Shetapproved his perseverence,
and he demanded an answer,
she had said "no". Later she had re
peated it—"No." Still he was obstinate.
Then had come that farewell moment
when he was about departing for broader
fields to give his ambitions play.
Answer me finally!" he
had demanded.
At thaticritical moment she had ad
mired his manner. He had given. no in
dication ofja lack of hope. She had hes
itated an linstant. A denser film had
overspread her eyes. And then, con
trolling herinerves, she had answered:
"Forever, Mr. Hadon, no!"
Her eyes had looked into his an in
stant, and then upon the ground. The
agony that'they suffered on the porch
there together had been of brief mo
ment.
"I go now," he had said, and left her.
She had never called him by his given
name, but, as he passed throrteh tho
gateway these words had almost es
caped her:
"I do John! Come back!"
The words were never spoken. That was
the instant in which Caroline became a
spinster.
When she reflected upon what she had
done, she was half regretful. After all,
that which had deterred her from ac
cepting him was only a whim of her
own. He was; handsome? Yes. He was
manly. Without a doubt? He possess
ed for her a certain fascination, but—
with a leap, that to the whole world ex
cept herself ,was unaccountable, her
thoughts went. back to the ugly nurse
she had had in*her infancy. She shud
dered as she beheld then, as clearly as 20
years previous.ithe aged hag lowering at
her, ogling her through those wary spec
tacles. How she had wondered if she
appeared distorted in the distorted eyes
of Hannah!
But those were tiny cares, childish
compared to the worries of the present
moment to which her mind returned.
Undoubtedly another man wonld love
her exactly like him, except—Caroline
had rested her elbows upon her knees,
her face in her hands and was weeping.
Her reverie had presently taken a more
practical turn. How could she tell her
father and mother that he had gone, gone
. forever; that neither they nor she should
see him again? She dared give the
real reason, the paltry objection that
had offset his words of manliness.
»•»•*«•
Ten years ago Caroline found a white
hair in the midst of that cascade of
black. She drew it over in front of her
face, looked upward at it with a slight
cast of the eyes and petulantly pulled it
out. She was not old. Forty is not old
The following day she discovered an
other. It had root near the right temple.
Yesterday's gray hair had been upon the
left. If sho must grow old a virgin
Providence at least intended that she
should grow old symmetrically, in per
fect form till the end. Then, as siie
iwept the long wisps of black around in
front of her, she discerned another. This
nettled her. She carefully separated it
from the wealth of surrounding black
and fingered it to its source at tho top
just at the very top of her well shaped
head. She pulled it out, exclaiming as
she did so, "Weeds!"
But sho was now growing old. She
would not have minded these tokens had
t ley been seasonable gifts from Father
Time. But 40 is not old.
The following day Caroline penned a
letter to a distant apothecary.
"I have a friend whose hair is becom
ing gray." she wrote. "Please send me"
—the pen lilted a moment. She was
writing for what in her younger days
6he had called "that horrid stuff!" And
yet it was only a dye, and for a friend.
Sho finished the epistle and posted it
herself.
A few days later a small wired came
through tito mail, tiddrcssed to Caroline.
She took it-to'her room, and, although
there was ho ono in tho house but her
self, locked the door. She pondered. If
she should use the dye, would she be the
only one deceived? Would tho rest of
the world pio«~3 the deception atone;?
She sat there awhila pensively listless in
her manner of ttoujrht, examining the
latel._ Then a sudden revulsion again;.
the deceit or the world overmasterea ner.
She arose from her chair and drew in a
long breath. She applied the spark of
self, condemnation and shook at the ex
plosion.
"Never!"
There was no danger now that she
would ever use the dye. She perused
tho list of testimonials. "Mre." was the
abbreviation that prefixed each signa
ture. It would be no disgrace to grow
gray if she were married now. Surely
not. Not so much of a disgrace if she
were a widow now. So she thought.
But an unmarried woman! A spinster!
She drew the cork from the bottle and
poured the contents out of the window.
With, a penknife she scraped off the la
bel, She put these scrapings, the testi
monials, the wrappers and inner wrap
pers into her pocket. She would burn
them later.
Five years ago an oculist examined
Caroline's eyes and told her she was near
sighted—a fact she had known for the
previous decade. He prescribed glasses,
and she purchased theui. She concealed
them in that drawer of the bureau that
was always kept locked, except when it
was necessary to take out or put away
certain valuables and kcei>sakeg. When
nobody was about, she would wear them.
She was reluctant to do so, but they add
ed to her comfort. And the newspapers
and Thackeray and Hawthorne and Bal
zac must be read, even at the expense of
personal vanity.
An unmarried woman, with no father,
no mother, an income of a pittance, a
single servant, was excusable for doing
almost anything. So she wore Jbheui.
She did not dare to look at herself closely
in the mirror when she first put them on.
She stood about 10 feet back, at which
distance she noticed that her hair had
an iron gray appearance. She gained
courage awhile later, and examined her
self in the hand glass. That iron gray
shade was her optical illusion. There
were black hairs and white hairs—a
slight predominance of white. Rarely
thereafter did she wear them when gaz
ing into the ■tlrror, She turned her
head away when walking past it. Every
time she put them on she did it with a
wry face. Once she cried and was about
to throw them away, but restrained her
self.
A few weeks ago Caroline plucked the
last black hair from her Bnow while
head. She did it with t!:e eaure petu
lance with which 10 yi: :.i Kfore she
had drawn out the fi:;-t t'.iread ••£ white,
the one ray of light in tbi 1 '■ .j'c dark
ness. t>he took from the bureau's secret
drawer a small c. Velope, and from this
abstracted that original curiosity. She
placed it by the side of this fatter day
curio, the black hair, the Inst remnant
of the cascade that had been the admira
tion of her school friends. She wound
them about her lingers and tied them,
then placed them in the envelope.
It was the spirit of the gambler in his
momeiii of desperation with whioh she
had done this. The world should know
now that Caroline could grow old r.:i
flinchingly. She picked up ft volume of
"The Scarlet Letter," that war. near dt
hand, to steady tho envelope while she
wrote simply:
'• lam a spinster. John loved ra
and would have continued to low me.

ThOOgbtlC*Sn€*S of Speech.
It is not tho pen that woman should
fear so much and try to control b? it is
the tongue. Tho greatest lesson that
woman has yet to learn is to think before
sho speaks. In comparison with the

hand is as harmless as a dove. All too
prevalent in *£osc days is the spirit of
cruel aud thoughtless criticism among
women. Thoughtlessness of speech has
done more to injure woman than any
single clement in her life. It has laid her
open to the charge of being unreliable—
and ofttiiaes justly so. It has kept from
her confidences that were hers by right.
It lwis stood in the way of her progress.
X has placed her innumerable times in
false positions. It has judged her as be

—the progress of Consumption. It's
cured, too, if it's taken in time.
What is needed is the one unfailing
remedy for Scrofula in all its forms
—for one of those forms (Lung
scrofula ) is Consumption.
Purify your blood—that's the first
thing. Rid it of the taints and
poisons that make it easy for this
dreaded disease to fasten its hold.
Then if you haven't delayed too
long, you can be cured.
From beginning to end, the reme
dy is Dr. Pierces Golden Medical
Discovery. It's the most potent
blood-cleanser, strength-restorer, and
flesh-builder known to medical sci
ence. Consumption, and every form
of Scrofula and blood-taint, all yield
to it. For Weak Lungs, Spitting of
Blood, Bronchitis, Asthma, and all
severe lingering Coughs, it's an un

for the Blood and Lungs that's guar
