HER BLACK SILK.
Uj JULIA FELT KNKKI.ANU.
(CorraioiiT, lew, or Dailt Stout PuiiMsniHo Co.)
"Yes, sir, that thcro machlno will
do tho work of a half-dozen men, and
do It qulckor and bolvr. I'll havo my
alfalfa stacked beforo tho neighbors
havo theirs In tho cocks," and John
Prince complacently surveyed his
latest purchase
His wife poor, tired Jennie stood
In tho kitchen door, looking at tho
now stacker In a dissatisfied manner.
Every year when John went to Den
ver with his cnttlo ho brought her a
now dress, but It was never a silk
one. Sho had asked him again and
again for tho much-coveted article,
but was always refused on tho score,
that "a farmer's wife had no need for
a silk dress." When sho went to
church she always took note of tho
Ilk dresses, most of them belonging
to poorer pcoplo than herself.
As sho stood thus, In the bright
morning sunshluo, a Hock of nearly a
hundred geese Issued from tho barn
yard and marched past her, on their
way to the Irrigation ditch.
John camo leisurely up from tho
barn.
"It Is nearly tlmo thoso geeso were
picked," ho remarked. "Yes," sho an
swered listlessly. "I believe we will
havo llfty dollars' worth of feathers
this year, mused John.
Jounlo stalled. "Fifty dollars!
Why that was Just what Cousin Kit
ty's silk cost making and nil! Fifty
dollars!" and as Jonnlo looked and
thought a sudden plan formulated it
self In her brain. Sho would havo the
money for tho feathers herself, Hadn't
sho sot and tended them? Hadn't, she
wntchod and fed them during tho
cold winter? And now sho was ex
pected to pick them! Surely she had
earned tho monoyl
Early Monday morning, John start
ed on a twcnty-flvo mile horseback
rldo, to buy calves, and drlvo them
home. Ho would be gono all weelc
This was her chance. As soon as he
was out of sight, Jonnlo called Andy,
tho hired man, and with his assist
onco tho geeso woro ono by ono tak
en from tho poultry house, and
robbed of their pretty coats. Hour
after hour they worked all other
work for tho day being neglected. .
When night camo a row of whoat
sacks filled with feathers, stood on
tho barn floor.
Tuosday morning saw Jcnnlo and
Andy driving to Emporia, with Hie
sacks of feathers piled In tho wagon
behind them. Arriving at Emporia,
they drove lmmcdlatoly to a produco
dealer, who purchased tho feathers.
What a bound l.cr heart gavo when
tho dealer counted tho .money Into her
bands. Flfty-flvo dollars!
With a smllo of exultation Jonnlo
started for Cousin Kitty's, telling
Andy to return homo and come after
her on Thursday.
"Kitty, can you go shopping with
mo this afternoon?" Jennie asked at
dinner.
"Why, certainly. I should bo glad
to go. Aro you going to get a spring
dress?"
"No, not exactly. I'm going to get
a black silk."
"A black silk!" In great astonish
ment. "Hns John really given you
tho money for it, at last?'
"No. Ho didn't give It to me. I
earned It"
"You earned It? How?" But Jen
nie seemed embarrassed over Kitty's
questions, nnd only said, "I'll toll
you about It somo other time. Let's
go down to tho city right away.'
When sho started for homo on
Thursday afternoon tho dress was
well under way, with tho promlso
His faco changed to tho flinty expres
sion sho so much dreaded,
that she could havo It Saturday after
noon. Sho spent tho Intervening tlmo
planning how to present tho matter
to John.
At last Saturday afternoon came,
and Andy drove her to town In tho
buggy, procured tho dress, nnd then
drove homo as quickly as possible
Jennie fearing lest John should arrlvo
flriL Andy was Instructed not to toll
Mr. Prwo of her visits to Emporia
i
that week, as sho had been preparing
a surprlso for him. Arriving at homo
Just at sundown Jcnnlo was relieved
to And that her husband was not
homo yet. The dress was hidden up
stairs, her clothes changed and sup
per ready before ho did como.
Sunday morning, John waa tired,
and only aroso In tlmo to dres3 hur
riedly for church and so did not go
to tho barnyard. Every circumstance
scorned to favor Jennie's carrying out
her plan of surprising him. John wns
shaving In the kitchen his favorlto
place. Jennie was In their room all
ready to put on the dress. With
trembling hands sho took It out of tho
box, and looked at Its beautiful folds;
but her spirit failed hor, and sho laid
It back again. Sho went Into the
closet and brought out tho brown
flannel that John had given her last
fall, and began to put It on. Then
sho romombered tho geese, and
thought, "I will at least try tho plan

"You aro probably a dying man."
of surprising him, for In any event
ho will know by night, nil about 1L"
Tho brown flannel came off and the
silk was put on. How nicely It flttod
hor slender figure. Surely John
would not harden his heart toward
her when ho saw how beautiful It
mado her appear!
With a faltering step and a falling
hoart, sho crept down tho stairs,
across tho sitting room and through
tho dining-room until sho stonDed In
tho kitchen door.
John had Just hung up tho towel.
Ho -turned nnd looked at hor. His face
lighted up with pleasure. ' Her heart
gavo a great bound and with a Joyful
cry, sho took a step or two toward
him. Ho then saw for the first time
that tho beautiful dress was silk, and
his faco changod to tho flinty expres
sion which sho so much dreaded.
"Jane Prlnco, where did you get
this dress?" ho said, seizing her by
tho nrm.
"I I bought It"
"You bought It; and whore did you
get the monoy7" sarcastically.
"I I picked tho geese and sold
tho feathers," sho said, much as if
sho had been reading her death sen
tence. John pushed her from him.
"Jane Prlnco, you may wear your silk
dress, bought by trickery and with
stolen money, but you can no longer
be my wife. I'll not forglvo you until
my dying day for this base deceit
I'll not turn you out of tho house, for
you've teen a good wlfo to mo In the
years that aro gono. I'll uso the west
bedroom and you stay whero you aro,
But don't speak to mo again until my
dying day. Then and not till then
I'll forglvo you."
The days came and tho days went;
how, Jennie scarcely know. Each
seomed harder to enduro than the
last Sho cooked tho meals, placed
thom on the table, and then went to
somo other part of the house while
John and Andy ato.
Often sho longed to throw her arms
about his neck and bog for forgive
ness, but was afraid of doing so, lest
she should be denied the measure of
pleasure she had In serving him.
John, too, afte.' his temper cooled
and he had tlmo to think the whole
matter out, came to a realization of
how meanly ho had acted In many
things toward his wlfo. He thought
of all bis acres and acres of land, ot
the money which thoy brought to him
overy year, of the barn and buildings,
of tho machinery, of tho horses and
cattle, which he hnd bought for his
own pleasure, and then ho thought
of all that ho had denied his wlfo.
Thus the summer nnd autumn
passed. Early In December, John be
came violently 111. Jennie Immedi
ately sent for the doctor, who pro
nounced It pneumonia, Jonnlo nursed
him day nnd night, but ho grow rap
Idly worse. Ho had now and then a
few lucid moments, ono of these oc
curring during tho doctor's visit
John grasped tho doctor's hand and
begged him to tell his condition.
"Doctor," ho said, "I want to know
Just what you think ot my cass. An

best If you want to see your lawyer
from tho city, I can send blm out to
you at once."
"Thank you, doctor, but thero Is no
ono to send for. if you seo my wife
as you .go out, please tell her that 1
want her."
With her heart beating almost to
suffocation, Jennie came swiftly Into
the room, and up to tho bedside. John
caught her hand, pulled her down to
him, and put both arms around her.
He held her thus moment after mo
ment before ho spoke. Then he
whispered softly, "My wlfo, will you
forglvo mo?"
"Can you forgive mo?" sho Bobbed.
For answer, ho hold her close to
htm and covered her faco with kisses,
and all was quiet peace In their
hearts. A week later when John
know that ho was to live, and not dio,
ho snld to Jennie, "I said onco that
t would nover forglvo you until my
dying day. Will you consider last
Wednesday as my dying day tho day
In which I died to all my hardness
and selfishness, and let mo lire
again, to make you happy? Wear
your black silk as a plodgo of our
now found love. Without that dress
wo should nover have known this
happy hour."
"GLASS DISEASE" THE LATEST.
Peculiar Malady Has Affected Win

Lately It has been found that a
peculiar "glass disease" has broken
out among the windows ot York
cathedral. Indeed, It Is Statod thai
feomo of tho thirteenth and fourteenth
century glass In tho edifice- has been
removed In order to nrrcst tho "dis

"fungus, but tho exact naturo of Its
attack upon tho glass Is not describ
ed. Tho glass appears to be perfor
ated to such an extent that portions
of tho glass yield on tho slightest
touch. Moreover, the transparency of
tto glass has to a great extent dlsap-1-eared
In short, tho glass hero nnd
thoro oxhlblts no longer tho proper
ties of glass. It Is evident that somo
kind of chemical action has been es
tablished, duo, perhaps to tho llfo and
habits of a specific fungus. Organ
isms aro known, of course, which
assimilate silica. The gradual, but
sure crumbling of tho cement used In
water reservoirs has been traced to
the operation of countless tiny organ
isms. Tho action wns at first regard
ed as being duo to the solvent prop
erty of carbonic acid and other sub
stances commonly present In ".vator.
Under tho action of tho bacteria tho
cemont slowly resolved Into soft mud.
The attack Is mado by tho ubiquitous

to a largo extent tho great work of

CONVINCING PROOF. H

ever since I was a boy, and about H
six years ago the causo developed
into rather a bad caso of kidney com- (
plaint It was not a little backache
now and then, but backacho which
caused actual suffering day and H
night, and the harder I tried to got
rid of It the worso It became.
When tho attacks wcro In tho acute
stogo It was difficult to sit down, and M
when down It was Just as hard to re-
gain an erect position, on account ot
tho twinges of pain In tho kldnoys. I B

as similar to that rccelvod from a

able to relieve the trouble, let alone

It became so well known that I had
a pronounced caso of kldnoy com

my attention I wanted to try them,
Just as I had tried everything else,
and Mrs. Itlgler went to Durban A

I know, after a dose or two that
tho medicine was acting directly on

oncouraged, I continued tho treat

other complications stopped.
Let mo sum up my opinion about
Doan's Kidney Pills by saying, I
would willingly pay ono month' '
wages for a box ot them If I could not
buy them for less. You can refer
any ono to me about Doan's Kldnoy
