j An Excess of Talent?
Tatsy Dolan, professional burglar,
appreciating the opportunity offered at
Colonel Bridges fV.ucy dross ball and
realizing that ho could not personate
an' one so well as himself, resolved to
attend as himself or rather ass the pub
lic conceived him, with a '-'oil of rope
thrown over out? shoulder, a darh: lan
tern Ln cue hand, a revolver In the
other (not loaded, of course) and a jim
my stiekiii.gr out of hi-? pocket.
On the n's'.it of the brill, bavins made
himself b)ik an little like the real Da
lan and a j i.::ivh like a sLa burglar as
possible, !. imu ( n a ma.-!? to enp the
costume aa v.-cll tin to conceal hi. unre
fined feature.; ad proceeded l" Coioucl
Bridges' residence. Seeing the oloucl
at the front door taking the name- of
the arriving guests, l'aisy withdrew to
the rear, climbed a trellis and elVeeteJ
ah entrance inlo a closet on the second
floor, from whence he emerged among
a crowd of guests pouring In and out
Vf the dressing rooms. Concluding that
for the time being there must be more
people upstairs than downstairs, he de
scended and entered the main drawing
"room, where stood the family waiting
to receive the guests.
"What an original Ideal" exclaimed
M!hs Bridges as Patsy Railed into the
room. "As sure as you live that's Ben
llarker. I'd know hlra In any costume.
1 knew he'd come in something unique.
Why doesn't he come to speak to
tan? Oh. I forgot; a burglar wouldn't
know enough for that."
Ah Roan as Miss Bridges could leave
the position of hostess she sought out
the burglar. Fhe thought it would be
fun to pretend to mistake bhn for the
"What are you do'ng here, sir;" sh
nn!d. "I'm ging to call a policeman
and hand you over to him."
If Tatsy's fare could have been peon
Ihrovg'i Ids mask be would hae be
trayed himself, but It couldn't, and this
gave him time t. recover h'n assurance,
which admonished him to bluff.
"Ve're . eompUmontiu me costume'
he tvU at a venture.
"It's splendid. What's that sticking
out of your pocket?"
"Shure, it's me jimmy!"
"You're the best character in the
room. How did you come to think of
Patsy drew a sigh of relief.
"Boh Marker," continued the girl,
"you needn't think you can fool me. I
knew' you the moment I saw you.
Come, let's go Into the ballroom."
Sho led the relieved Patsy away and
forced him to stand with her in a
square dance. He had no sooner dis
played his awkwardness than his part
ner burstt into a laugh, and every one

the blunders of the burglar. Indeed, it
was not long before nearly every one
In the room was watching him. This
was too much success, and he tried
hard to dance like the rest, but the
harder he tried the worse he failed.
When the dance was finished he told
his partner that he was tired and must
go upstairs for a rest, but she would
not permit the best character at the
ball to retire for a moment.
"Oh, there's a policeman!" she ex
claimed. "How nice it would be for
you two to know each other!" And
she dragged the unwilling burglar to
"Here's a burglar for you, Mr. To
liccman. You'd better take him to jail.
You two are the best made up of any
In the house. You're both splendid."
"Are you an old offender or new to
crime?" asked the policeman to keep
up the byplay.
"Oi'm a yung bir-r-d," replied Patsy.
"Ever cracked a crib?"
"Nlver a oncet. Oi'm as Innocent as
the day Ol first wint to Suuda' school."
Miss Bridges clapped her hands.
"He beats you." she said to the police
man. "Isn't he a perfect character?"
"As near the real thing as any I ever
saw," replied the cop In a dry tone that
made Patsy wish he hadn't such re
markable talents for Impersonation.
"He wants to go upstairs and rest,"
ald Mtss Bridge to the policeman.
"Do you think the jewelry would b
"Doubt It." replied the cop.
"I think I'll take him into the suppei
room. I d like an lee."
'Watch the spoons if you do."

We like best to call Scott's
Emulsion a food-medicine. It
is a, term that aptly describes
the character and action of
our Emulsion. More than a
medicine more than a food,
yet combining the vital prin
ciples of both. It is for this
reason that Scott s Emulsion
has a distinct and special
value in all wasting diseases.
There is nothing better to
remedy the troubles of im
perfect growth and delicate
health in children. The action
of Scott's Emulsion is just as
effective in treating weak
ness and wasting in adults.

to the young lady, he added, "Don't

your presence at the unmasking would
not help these festivities to pass pleas

where. Come with me. You're want

miliar to Patsy, but were spoken In a
familiar tone. Patsy followed the po
liceman out of the room, Miss Bridges
looking on admiringly.
4'How well those two play theii
parts!" she said to herself as she turned
away without suspecting that a rea':
policeman had arrested a real burglar.

Bears the TIib Kind You Have Always Bjnght
"You can always tell a j'oung hus
band from an old one by the way he
acts when he goes after a bucket of
water," says Uncle Hiram. "Three
months married, he swings the pump
handle, whistles and casts covert
glances at the house as though some
one wrere looking at him from the win
dow. One year married, he swings the
pump handle more slowly, smiles oc
casionally and seems to be annoyed be
cause the meal is late. Two years mar
ried, he looks sour and glum, kicks the
cat over the coal house and looks at the
house as if he would like to choke
somebody. Three years married, he
sits on the doorstep and smokes while
his wife works the pump hantlle."

Her Bitter Disappointment
The bitter trail in a woman's life is to
be childless. Who can tell how hard the
struggle may have been ere she learnt to
resign herself to her lonely lot? The ab-

gether, the absence of this one pledge to
mutual affection is a common disap
pointment. Many unfortunate couples
become estranged thereby. Even if they
do not drift apart, one may read the whole
extent of their disappointment in the eyes
of such a childless couple when they rest
on the children of otliers. To them the
largest family does not seem too numerous.
It will rather appear to them that those
on whom this blessing has been most
richly bestowed hardly valuo it sufii
ciently. In many cases of barrenness or child
lessness the obstacle to child-bearing is
easily removed by the cure of weakness on
the part of the woman: Dr. Pierce's Fa
vorite Prescription has been the means of
restoring health and fruitful ness to many
a barren woman, to the great joy of the
household. In other, but rare cases, the
obstruction to the bearing of children has
been found to bo of a surgical character,
but easily removable by painless operative
treatment at the Invalids' Hotel and Sur-
fical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., over which
)r. Pierce of the "Favorite Prescription"
fame presides. In all cases where chil
dren are desired and are absent, an effort
should be made to find out the real cause,
since it is generally so easily removed by
In all the various weaknesses, displace
ments, prolapsus, antf-versions, retro
versions, inflammation of ovaries, leucor
rhoea, giving rise to disagreeable and
weakening drains, and in all cases of
nervousness, nervous prostration and
debility. Dr. Pierco's Favorite Prescrip
tion is the most efficient remedy that can
Eossibly be used. It has to its credit
undreds of thousands of cures more in
fact, than any other remedy put up for
sale, through druggists, especially for
woman's use. You do not have to take
Dr. Pierce's word alone for this, because
the ingredients of which the "Favorite
Prescription" are composed have received
the most positive endorsement from the
leading medical wri ters on Materia Medlca
of all the several schools of practice.
All the ingredients are printed in plain
English on the wrapper enclosing the
bottle, so that if you are an invalid woman
and make use of this famous medicine you
know exactly what you are taking. Dr.
Pierce takes his patients into his full con
fidence, which he can afford to do as the
formula after which the "Favorite Pre
scription" is made will bear the most
You do not have to experiment when
taking Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription,
as with the many fake, Cheap John Med
icines that are sent out on trail, composed
of cheap and often harmful ingredients.
Dr. Pierce resorted to Nature's Labo
ratory to get the ingredients for his "Fa
vorite Prescription," believing that the
Indigenous, or native, medicinal roots of
1 our country are endowed by Providence
with the most marvelous curative powers.
The only rational way to attempt to
cure disease is by assisting the natural
functions of the body, and to do that
there is nothing like Nature's remedies
which act In Nature's way, toning and
Invigorating the digestive organs, the
liver, the stomach and bowels and the
nervous system, which always suffers to
a great extent in all the various derange
ments of the organs distinctly feminine.
The medicine of known composition is
the one to rely upon the one that has a
record of nearly forty years of cures the
one devised and manufactured by a regu
larly graduated and experienced practi
tioner of medicine. Ily addressing Dr. R.

Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It is
worth looking oyer if you are a sufferer.
Dr. Pierce does not claim for his "Fa
vorite Prescription " that it is a "cure-all."
It is recommended as a most perfect spe
cific for woman's peculiar ailments. So
uniform are the results which follow the
use of this remarkable rernedv, that it
can be truly affirmed of "Favorite Pre

It is a powerful invigorating tonic, im
parting health and strength in particular
to the organs distinctly feminine. The
local, womanly health is so intimately
related to the general health that when
diseases of the delicate womanly organs
are cured the whole body gains in health
and strength. For weak and sickly
women who are "worn-out," "run-down"

nervous symptoms commonly attendant
upon functional' and organic disease of
the womanly organs. It induces refresh

Cures obstinate cases. "Favorite Pre

complicated and obstinate cases of leucor

organs, weak back, "female weakness,"

Dr. Pierce's medicines are made from
harmless but efficient medicinal roots
found growing in our American forests.
The Indians knew of the marvelous cura

parted that knowledge to some of the
friendlier whites, and gradually some of
the more progressive physicians came to
test and use them, and ever since they
have grown in favor by reason of their
superior curative virtues and their safe
and harmless qualities.
Your druggists sell the "Favorite Pre
scription" and also that famous altera
