So w’e are told by the great scient ists who are certainly doing wonders in reducing the death rate from Tuber culosis. They also warn us not to neg lect a cold or cough, and it is most im portant that this advice be followed. While the cough or cold may not bring consumption, it Is better to be on tha safe side and take no chances. Here is a simple remedy that will break up. a cold In twenty-four hours, and cure any cough that is curable: Glycerine, two ounces; Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure), one-half ounce; good Whisky, a half pint. Shake well and use in teaspoonful doses every four hours. The Ingredients can be secured from any good prescription druggist at small **ost, but must be pure to effect the desired results.

The cost of the sultan of Turkey's food does not exceed $3,000 a year, aa he lives mostly on entrees and boiled eggs. But to feed the numerous mem bers of his household and pay all do mestic expenses lessen his annual income of $10,000,000 by $90,000 a week. Poor Paint is Expensive If one is rich enough to repaint his buildings every year for the pleasure of having a change of color scheme, the quality of the paint used may cut little figure. But if it is desirable to cut the painting bills down to the least amount possible per year, it is of the utmost importance that the paint be made of Pure White Lead and the best of Linseed Oil. There are imita tions in the form of alleged White and there are substitutes in the form of ready-prepared paints.

ZELDA DAMEHON." lie. iop)rliilH UotUi-Jlerilll Co. CHAPTER 11. A Face at Sherry’s. We shook hands stiffly and 1 left him. going down in an elevator filled with eager-eyed, anxious men. I. s»t least, had no cares of business. It made no difference to me whether the market rose or fell. Something of the spirit of adventure that had been my curse quickened in my heart as I walked through crowded Broadway past Trinity church to a bank and drew the balance remaining on my letter of credit. I received in currency slightly less than SI,OOO. As I turned from the teller’s w ndow I ran into the arms of the last man in the world I expected to see. This, let it be remembered, was in October of the year of our Lord, nine- | teen hundred and one. • Don't mention my name an thou i lovest me!” said Lauranee Donovan, and he drew me aside, ignored my I hand and otherwise threw into our j meeting a casual quality that was : somewhat amazing in view of the fact that we had met last at Cairo. “Allah il Allah!” It was undoubtedly Larry. I felt the heat of the desert and heard the camel drivers cursing and our Sudanese guides plotting mischief under a win dow far away. “Well!" we both exclaimed interro gatively. He rocked gently back and forth, with his hands in his pockets, on the tile floor of the banking house. I had seen him stand thus once on a time when he had eaten nothing in four days—it was in Abyssinia, and our guides had lost us in the worst possi- ! ble place—with the same untroubled ; look in his eyes. “Please don’t appear surprised, or scared or anything, Jack.” he said, with his delicious intonation. “I saw a fellow looking for me an hour or so ago. He's been at it for several ! months: hence my presence on these shores of the brave and the free. lie’s probably still looking, as he’s a per sistent devil. I'm here, as we may say, quite incog. Staying at an East Side lodging house, where 1 shan't in vite you to call on me. But I must see i you.” "Dine with me to-night, at Slier- ! ry’s—” • “Too big. too many people—" “Therein lies security, if you're in | trouble. I'm about to go Into exile. I and 1 want to eat one more civilized ; dinner before I go." “Perhaps it's just as well. Where are you off for, —not Africa again?” "So. Just Indiana. —one of the sov ereign American states, as you ought to know.” "Indians?” “No; warranted all dead." “Pack train —balloon —automobile— camels, —how do you get there?” "Varnished cars. It’s easy. It's not the getting there; it’s the not dying of ennui after you're on the spot.” •'Humph! What hour did you say for the dinner?" “Seven o’clock. Meet me at the en trance.” "I'll be there if I’m not in jail Kind j ly allow me to precede you. and don't follow', please!" He walked away, his gloved hands ; clasped lazily behind him, lounged out j upon Broadway and turned toward the j Battery. I waited until he disap pea red, then took an uptown car. My first meeting with Lauranee Don- j uvan was in Constantinople, at a caf.- i where I was dining. He got into a row w ith an Englishman and knocked him 1 down. It was not my affair, but. I liked the ease and definiteness with which Larry put his foe out of commission. I learned later that it was away he had. My friend, the American consul gen eral at Constantinople, was not with out a sense of humor, and I easily en listed him in Larry’s behalf. The Eng lishman thirsted for vengeance and in voked all the powers. He insisted, with reason, that Larry was a British subject and that the Afnerlcan consul had no right to give him asylum.—a point that was. I understand, thor oughly well-grounded in law and facr. Larry maintained, on the other hand, that ho was not English but L di. and that, as ids country mainta.ned no representative in Turkey, It wai ills privilege to find refuge wherever it wjyi offered. Larry was always the mot. plausible of human beings, and between us,—he, the American consul and I, —we made an impression, and got him off. I did net real 17.0 until later that the real joke lay in the fact that. Larry was English-born, and that his dovo • tion to Ireland was purely sentimental and quixotic. HU family had, to be sure, come out of Ireland some time In the dim past, and settled In Eng land; but when Larry reached years of knowledge, If not of discret'on, he cut Oxford i.r».d insisted on taking his de gree at Dublin. He even b Moved, —or thought ho believed, —in banshees. He allied himself during his university days with the moat radical and turbu 'onfc advocates of.u national existence for Ireland, and occasionally spent a month in jail for rioting. But Larry's instincts were scholarly; he made a brilliant record at the univer sity; then, at 22. he came forth to look at the world, and liked It exceeding ( well. His father was a busy man and j lie had other sons, so he granted Larry j an allowance and told him to keep • away from home until he got ready to \ be respectable. So, from Constant i- 1 nople, after a tour of Europe, we to gether crossed the Mediterranean in | search of the fleshpots of lost king- , do ms. spending three years in the pur- | suit. We parted at Cairo on excellent , terms. He returned to England and later to his beloved Ireland, for he had blithely sung the wildest Gaelic j songs in the darkest days of our ad ventures. and never lost his love for The Sod, as he apostrophized—and capitalized—his adopted country. Larry had the habit of immaculate- . ness. He emerged from his East Side ; lodging house that night clothed prop-, erly. and wearing the gentlemanly air of peace and reserve that is so wholly incompatible with his disposition to breed discord and indulge in riot. When we sat down for a leisurely din ner at Sherry's we were not. I modest ly maintain, a forbidding pair. We— if I may drag vyself into the matter - are both a trifle under the average height, sinewy, nervous, and. just then, trained One. Our lean. clean-shaven faces were well-browned —mlnfe wear ing a fresh coat from *niy clays on the steamer’s dick. Larry had never been in America be fore, and the scene had for both of us the charm of a gay and novel spec tacle. I have always maintained, in talking to Larry of people and races, that the Americans are the hand somest and best put up people in the world, and I believe he was persuad«-<l of it that night as we gazed with eyes Pickering Stooped to Pick It Up. lons unaccustomed to Hplcudor iipou the great company assembled i i the restaurant. The lights, the Mini'-, the variety und richness *’f the co i lines of the women, the many minis::- »bly foreign far- s that gave a ces::inpo!l tnn accent t-o the whole, wrought a welcome spell upon kcihch Inur-d to hardship in earth’s wiste and <1 r ary places. Now tell me the story." I said. Have you clone murder? Is th of fense treasonable?” "It was a tenants’ row in fialway, ami I smashed a constable. I smashed him pretty lianl, I dare say, from the row they kicked up In the newspapers. I lav low for a collide of weeks, caught a boat at Queenstown, and her.- I am. waiting for a chance to get hack to The Sod wit limit going in irons.' “You were certainly horn to ha hanged, Larry. You’d better stay in ' America. There's more room hero tlian anywhere else, and It’s not easy to kidnap u man In America and carry him off." ‘•Possibly not; ana yet the situation Isn’t wholly tranquil." ho said, trans fixing a l»!t of pom, ano with ids fork. "Kindly no'** the florid gentleman at your right—at the table with four— he’s next the lady in pink. It may In terest you to know that lie’s tin Brit ish consul." “In(.cresting, but not Important.

Thanks; no more of the fish. Let us banish care. I wasn’t born to be hanged; and as I am a political of fender, I doubt whether I can be de ported If they lay hands on me.” He watched the bubbles in his gluss dreamily, holding it up In his si m. I well-kept fingers. "Tell me something of your own immediate present and future,” he said. 1 made the story of my grandfather Glenarm’s legacy as brief us possible, for brevity was a definite law of our intercourse. "A year, you say. with nothing to do but fold your hands and wait. It doesn’t sound awfully attractive tome. I’d rather do without the money.” "Hut I intend to do some work. I owe it to my grandfather's memory to make good, if there’s any good In me.” The sentiment is worthy of you. Glenarro,” he said, mockingly. “What do you see—a ghost?” I must have started slightly at sud denly espying Arthur Pickering not 20 feet away. A party of half a dozen or more had risen, and Pickering and a girl were detached from the others for a moment. She was young,—quite the youngest in the group about Pickering’s table. A certain girlishness of height and outline may have been emphasized by her juxtaposition to Pickering’s heavy figure. She was in black, with white showing at throat aud wrists. —a Bom ber contrast to the other women of i lie party, who were arrayed with a de gree of splendor. She had dropped her fan and Pickering stooped to pick It up. In the second that she waited she turned carelessly toward me. and our eyes met for an instant. Very likely she was Pickering’s sister, and I tried to reconstruct his family, which ! had known in my youth; but I could not place her. As she walked out before him my eyes followed her. —the erect figure, free and graceful, but with a charming dignity and poise. —And the gold of her fair hair glinting under her back toque. Her eyes, as she turned them full upon me. were the saddest, sweeteaf eyes I had ever seen, and oven In that brilliant, crowded room I felt their spell. They were fixed in my memory indelibly.—mournful, dreamy ami wist ful. In my absorption I forgot Larry. “You’re taking unfair advantage.” he observed quietly. “Friends of yourj?” (TO UK CONTINUED.) TOOK ALL THE BLAME. Stately Courtesy Displayed by Bur man to Englishman. In the country district of Bu'inuh the natives still practice the old world stately courtesy, which Ih now seldom found In the cities where the natives have been long In contact with Europeans. An English gentleman who h;i'J bought a new pony was trying him one morning when the animal bolted and ran full speed down a narrow road. Straight ahead was a native cart. Ip which was a family party out holiday making. The pony dashed into the midst of the merrymakers, and so verely Injured the native who was driving. Before the Englishman hod an op portunity to explain his unexpected onslaught the Biirmai. picked himself up and bowed low. •*My lord, pardon," ho said, apolo getically, "my cart should not have been there." When Are Blackberries? In a Held off a Surrey (Eng'and) lane approached a perfect specimen of the peasant slouch hatted and smocked. Ho was leading by the hnmi a boy of about ten. obviously n town-bred youngster. They paused for a moment. “What’s those, gran’- pa?" asked the boy, pointing to a clus ter of bt-.rles In the hedges. "Them be bluckberrles, my boy." "Blackber ries! Why, they’re red!" "Red! Of course they be red! Don’t you know, boy, that blackberries be always red when they’re green?’ BUTTON THEIR OWN WAISTS. New York Women Have Surmounted Great Obetacle. Marvelous as It may seem, New York women have lately discovered a way of fastening their waists up the back without calling for assistance. Thought not lacking In generosity, they became so tired of the outstretched palm of the chambermaids that they now feel that it is time to guard their pockets. The Gotham woman discov ered that if she put her blouse on hind side before, with the sleeves hanging free, it could be fastened from top to bottom, with the excep tion of the hooks at the neck, and then turned around and the arms slipped into the sleeves without un duly straining the fastenings. So sim ple! So strange that no one had thought of it before. Or is it possible other women have used the plan and meanly kept it to themselves? Will the waist that buttons in the back bow have -a new lease of life?. FIFTEEN YEARS OF ECZEMA. Terrible Itching Prevented Sleep- Hands, Arms and Legs Affected —Cuticura Cured in 6 Days. "I hail eczema nearly fifteen years. The affected parts were my hands, arras and legs. They were the worst In the winter time, and were always Itchy, and I could not keep from scratching them. 1 had to keep both hands bandaged all the time, and at night I would have to scratch though the bandages as the Itching was so sovere. and at times I would have to tear everything off my hands to scratch the skin. I could not rest or sleep. I had several physicians treat me but they could not give me a permanent cure nor even could they stop the Itching. After using the Cuticura Soap, one box of Cuticura Ointment and two bottles of Cuticura Resolvent for about six days the itching had censed, and now the sores have disappeared, and 1 never felt better In my life than I do now.

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have been curing the most stubborn cases of rheumatism for nearly a generation and thousands of grateful patients have given testimony that cannot be ignored. Mr. Robert Odbert, a machinist, liv ing at 201 Cameron Street. Detroit, Mich., had a very distressing experi ence with rheumatism for about two years. He makes the following state ment: "About the year 1887 I felt the effects of rheumatism which gradually grew worse until I was compelled to give up work for a time. The years of '97 and '9B 1 was confined to my bed most of the time. I was under doctors' treatment but found no relief. My legs were swollen from the hips down ward and red blotches appeared all over them. Frequently they pained me so that I had to bind them tightly w’lth strips of liuen. This sometimes relieved the pain but at other times failed to do so. At times I had to crawl to my work, using two crutches. During these spells 1 suffered gnatly from pain around my heart which 1 at tributed to the rheumatism "At last my mother wrote me and asked me to try I)r. Williams' Pink Pills. I did and In a short tlrn*‘ 1 found myself getting better an-! have had no trouble since. I may here add that 1 consider myself perfectly cured. I have not had the least sign of the disease since and feel better now than I ever did. For these reasons I recommend Dr. Williams* Pink Pill* to any one affected the same as I was."
